Racial Climate Change

"Yes yes. We're back in the same room, everybody. National Nightmare over same room. Basically Alive Zoom. Or crossing each other into different colored squares, but we can hit. You can hear some of my. I. Mike her mike by Versa. Bianca yes, America is having a long just stating racial explosion. It's been two hundred forty years in the making and we're living through it. You tried to tell we try. We try, we were young. We were way ahead of this race. Thing we are, we are. We were basically like. The. CNN area was an ABC guy who was in a wheelchair who was always in. He was into bin Laden before nine eleven, and then once bin Laden hit. He'd fucking cleaned up. We're we're. We're going to have a racial riot all the way to the bank. How many peop- brands associated? With our pseudo woke or I don't know what you would call us because we're not especially woke now in. Part of our. Our. Are Racially. Sophisticated, let's call ourselves racially visited. Pov because. It finally finally happened. It finally happened. Tell me your experience. On? You Go, so I went to the dust with us. The partisans Saturday in Los Angeles. Pan Pacific Park. And I participate for seven hours from about noon till seven. And we marched from Pan Pacific all the way to Beverly Hills. All the way back, or they wouldn't let you guys in the Beverly Hills though. We went in perfectly fine. because. They said they were blocking off a long ago. I lost and third, so then we just took San Vicente. This cal. This is L. A.. We all know different streets. Yeah, like yeah. It was like a protest version of that skit the Californians. So we went to Simmons went on Amazon data was cool. There was like a drum. There's these these dudes playing drums with really help the pace of the protest. I brought. It was like Nice. White Drum liners or cool. Everyone was waving lines you like the people of Beverly Hills. I. Mean Part of me was like this isn't a parade, but that's fine like whatever better to wave than nothing. We went there. We did very peaceful citizens. We Sat. Sitting was era just sitting. Flu Industry. Rodeo I think that was like the most symbolic things like we sat in front of the police station. And then sat on Rodeo. It was peaceful I kept saying like Howard people's lending videos of. Cars like police cars burning. Literally the resigns it said like keep off the roses in the center divide, and then people kept off the routes. It was fine and. I think it was telling you the. Anytime someone tried to be violent. someone through like a beer can at in ambulance. Everyone was like get the way from the moon's move. Everybody moved one kid through Bearman and then I was like what the fuck. He's like whatever I forget what it's like. It just was weird. You could tell there is just one vibe which was really peaceful. They didn't want any trump any trouble like that. They really like wanted to like move through communities and just make a statement and not destroy everything. And then. You know you say like. Minutes later forty five minutes later, someone where we were forty five minutes prior sending me a video of a cop car burning. On like third in Fairfax, you just been neat. Thirty forty five minutes earlier and I thought a while. Maybe the protesters that big, but it's not the pro like move really swiftly in March. I didn't realize I thought. Maybe it's taking awhile and then at the end of it we'll do. Tires Gee. I tried to time. I shoot that idea. No the PROTAS moved. We moved on quickly because I did try to stop for something and I was like wait. Wait, wait wait for me, and then you know it's like a swift moving thing. It's just people walking so doesn't take thirty minutes to walk past that one intersection where basically where we started. So. It just seemed like there are two different things. People were taking I don't know I get it conflicted. Because none of the protests and the demonstration I was apart of had the like destruction violence. We're not part of anybody's bottomline and I saw so little of it, but. I, do think. I don't know this one just feels like people are getting sick. They're kind of. A lot of different reasons people upset so I think taking to the streets in violence alluding I think there's just agent. Provocateurs is people who are like fuck it. Let's just go. Shit up and then there's people who. I don't know I think I'm not. I'm conflicted, because even though that wasn't part of it. It makes sense in a way. You not like I. Don't I think? Not in I don't think there are a part of the protests now they're not. They were not there. I think it's just people that wanted to do that. It almost felt like the dark heart of the Internet showed up. The dark wind felt like it felt like the dark web showed up just to be tickets I also got say the kids in the Fairfax one. And then there was the fucked up so last night New York. A Lotta just look like skater kids most of them were Mohsen had skateboards. Yeah, we're like. Most of them are white. You Know Jeff Judge. A lot of them were white, and it was just weird, because when we were done to the protests, everyone was so fucking. From walking the sun for seven hours, I was like no way I could even throw a brick through something I'm so fucking want to I. Don't have this right. You know what's fucked up though. It's really interesting. I'm speak for LA, because if you're protesting and then cops are not allowing you to protest and things get heated I understand that, but we protested is a cop I saw a few, but I didn't see when we were protesting. We were allowed to produce they kind of were guarding the Beverly Hills. Police station a little bit, but not really. I, didn't know one with the thousands of people I was with right, and then at the end of the night nightmare air on so like beverly in fact. There were there was a clear line of police. Look. There were rubber bullets tear gas towards the end, but it was a lot of people why we kept calling it. The night shift like it was people going towards the police line. And I was just like It's it's like nightfall dusk. There's a please line. And they were just like young kids that were like ulysses, and so my head. I was like Oh. There's two different people, those kind of mostly white kids mostly white, but I wouldn't say all white at all, but. Majority white that I saw there were these three black is literally they were all of them were carrying one two by four like a cartoon I was like, and they were just like with Dubai for like. WE'RE GOING TO GO DOOR I. Very but the thing about the E. win at least in that area that like kind of we, Ho district. This stores were really specifically targeted like Flight Club. We saw she palace. Don't cancers. The got shoe places. They got a lot of drugstores right logic and they got. Out here. They got Patagonia. Rei which again it's like the two different white evil. Why would love tents? Yeah so. There is this other element way. Here's a couple of things that I underestimated watching this. I didn't know how easy I didn't know. There was easy to light a car on fire. Didn't I sale I'm like how the fuck are you doing this so easily? Right like? They were just cut to a carnivore Mike. I hate conspiracies. You know I have I mostly talk. Things where I'm like some people are saying it was on fire. Some people are saying they're prop cars like till I K-. Burn these cars. It was weird how they replaced though there were just like. I mean we pass cop cars? They were on I. would go a step further. Let me go deeper into my conspiracy. As there it's. It's not protesters. It's fake rioters. I'd never thought I'd see. I. Neil I didn't either remember when they pulled down the Saddam. Hussein Sacha and you know those were all paid. Paid people now I didn't is the funniest in front frontline or something. We were, GonNa do a joke about it on hundred L. Show where we had fake Iraqi celebrators. Because they were just fake fake and hitting with. All that Shit! They were fake they. I mean I'm sure they were against him, but they were like brought in to tear them down. What did you see the one? About the guy the agent provocateur in. MINNESOTA WHO I. The windows of the autozone, and then his wife like. We no, that's my husband's makes. That's my. That's my guess mask and like identified him I mean. Of course, the police that wasn't him. He had a mask on. We do right, but due to see someone photoshop putting the mask on him, but they took a mass put on his face, and it's. It's like he's deep set like I was like do this. And that's the thing in that kind of was. That was weird to me. There was something weird going on, because for example when we went back to Pan Pacific Park. Everyone's like texting all my God like. Did they destroy the parking like every? It's like these designated places where people tortured up, but one st off one block away like everything's went. So it's it's just. Strangely orchestrated. You know what I mean. It was strangely organized and I don't think you. I don't know what that says tweeted that like a girl I've always like it was Apps I. The cops let the car on fire. I don't know how and then they had them. So then we tried to walk back after nine eleven literally that up, and they said they found Mohamed Atta's passport in the rubble of. What now yeah you about on John's John What you've found the main perpetrators. What. What the Scooby Doo Colin Keating! Yeah, yeah, no, it's it's weird like and then they line them up so at right. We're like Mendocino. Farms and trader Joe's is on third Before you get to Fairfax, there was a police line like just holding the crowd crowd back, and there was a line of like cars that were Fox up and I was just like. I don't know I. Don't know something's weird about a intentionally like almost like a used lot almost like on like A. Like a a junk yard. Literally like look at our junk, Lewin. There's all those things where the their day left piles of bricks. At. There's some weird shit going on man. I think it's I mean the the simple explanation would be. They want the looters. They want the writers to look bad. They want the. They want the protesters to look that. They're trying to turn protesters into Ryder Right. Going like seat like there was other videos of them pushing. Like at the police line there'd be like a lot of black kids and then cops, and then there'd be white kids pushing the black kids in gaps. No, did you see people like there is one video where they were like. Don't start a fire like you. Guys don't live in DC Yuck I live here. We don't WanNA. Burn this just nobody. I was around and I get it look. We passed by someone through brick. Ace Up. which is a skincare line I love I use and the resume, and this is literally what it looked like. It was a brick. There was the like anti shattered glass that just goes into squares. And there's just a sop open and when I. Tell You is my marshmallow test. That's fucked up. Oh! Oh my God. Give me the strength law. I'M GONNA run. because. I rest the. Rest My. Dogs Dogs Barking. Dogs it took everything for me and it was to the girls with after those Dat that tested my strength and she's like. If you would have done it and I would like no guess what yesterday was my birthday Jessica got from everything. Of looking gift certificate to. Earn that allowed marks y'all. Will. Only will right so I don't know if it's. I don't know I don't know, is it? Is there something somebody trying to? You know like Bait you because I think that's human nature intellect. I say rolling tied something the. Studies, etc, but yes, if people, there are instigators, human beings are pack animals so if it's like. Just, go for the thing that's happening. You're you're adrenaline surges and you? fucking may whatever fuck it, and then you, you do like an inst- irrational where you. FUCKING THERE With our and the next thing, you know, you have a bag full of fucking. sweatsuits. Running. I tweeted the other night because it's so goddamn true. At every looter that comes out of a of a store, almost slips and falls all. It was so funny. It's like without wide. Because they're going going from going from there on two different services, right and there's glass. It's so funny. It made me laugh so hard. When I like, put it together. It looks like record the look. But you know what's interesting is that there are people like at the Grove people were parked, and they were just like hanging, and that was the worst Lisa be and they just wanted to film it they want. It was just like. Why are you so dangerous? The riot influencers who were? Got Fire Cars. Whose footage. was on a lot of them were of other. That's fine. There were plenty of black is doing it to one hundred I'm not actually talking. I'm talking about something very specific so where the police line was dearer. Just people like like on a safari like. Looking like Oh oh that we're not. They were not. They were like not even about what was happening yet, but they sure did park at the Grove, and like they were kids out, and they were just taking photos with families I, it was a little bit of like a spectator vibe of like. Let's see what happens also. There was just something in the air where it felt like half the people providing for something. The other have just don't want to see some ship off. Chaos Wire looks like there shouldn't movie. Shooting moving. All the movie that just looks like Oh who's in it? Oh okay. Hold on giving a curfew six. Grip six PM. We'll do our best. Let's speed through this thing. He's looking Stephen Jackson spoke. Yeah I have theory. It's clearly different this time, right, yeah! And My, here's my favorite why it's different and. People so for black on black them being killed time and more right and. Why we're always able to. guy. Yeah, we don't know everything. and. And they got to hide behind I'm busy, and I don't even know if they were hiding behind it. People were busy. People are busy. And now I think so so. Then, so that's the. That's what the system was six months ago, so then Kobe Hits No one's working, so no one's busy. Black people are dying in disproportionate amounts because of covid. And And then a black person gets. Murdered in a way that's. It's if I were filming it. That's the angle. That's the angle you want. That's like with Eric Garner. It's the. He's big in there like you can't really tell what's happening. It's a clear shot. Even On Aubrey's like it's. Weird Hammer. It's a single. Guy Neil production. Yes, single of a guy getting SM- getting snuffed like a like a fucking. Animal getting snuffed, and so I think. Blackie were like. Okay so word already dying from a disease because of. Disproportionate disproportionately because of Bazeley facilities and Whatever. Because of racism and then. We're getting killed openly. There's no charges. which again that's a tinderbox I. Think the thing that no one's really considering. This is my own theories. The fact that the government magically has been finding trillions of dollars of stimulus for for companies. Is One of those things where it's like? I thought you said. The curfew. Sorry. Who've the curfew up? Will between me and you. are asked beat. They, Mur they merv the curfew they move. Can't take long will we'll be done by five. Again not a big got not a big news day. so. I think the government magically finding trillions of dollars for corporations when four. Decades they've been saying they can't afford stuff I told. Somebody that it was like. Remember when your mom would every once in a while magically find desert. Cooking you are. We're the fuck you get those cookies like you, said we. Why don't we have dessert? Like she magically if you can fuck and if you have access to cook, east, you got to be clear about that so I think you GonNa win. You gotTa fucking Gimme cookies. Don't hold them out. So what I'm saying is. I think that's enough. That's like fuck it. Fuck it I don't I'm like snuffed for nothing. And I might get coverted. I might get snuffed and you guys. Not! Mine is on silently government I. Know What override the silent. Sorry it's. Stop keep this in well. It's really. Really. Powerful it shows the times we're living in. Sixteen Sixty S. he got ED thank you. Yeah. So it's like if I can get. I can get snuffed and you. Mother fuckers magically find money that you've been saying you can't use for any the things I need in my life. Fuck you. There's no there's. The risk has never been lower because and also people don't have anything to do and white memorial now because they don't have any to either. They have no like you were saying. We have no. Like, it was so mad at looters and we like right now. It's like the looters went before before this happened when it came time for the bailout. Whatever you say, Oh, people are making more than they should every week like low income workers. It's like talk about. Let's talk about the companies that are getting millions of dollars. We are not talking about. We're saying that like getting A. Measly six hundred dollars a week is somehow not, but they sound your that. They think that people are slate. They liked days. These monsters can't handle. That's what they're trying. It's by the way it's the same narrative of why they try to instigate people into into looting. It's they're trying to paint people as savages night now we both. Are I. Think everyone even including some people I think. Everyone realized that this went like. The ANTIFA thing that's like where I want to say to the right like now that's. Not a that's not a thing. I takes the owners off. People yeah. It does serve a good purpose. It's like you're, but they want. They can't say white men like they don't call it out. Whiteman Yeah. That's the radical. Liberal A so. That's fine to call whatever they can blame. Fuck whoever they want as long as they don't put on by which for the most part they haven't. I will say they have kind of done a better job. This time at identifying that like there are young white men coming in like fucking shit up. That are not part of the protests that are like it's a specific thing it is also I've never seen Moore anchors. Talk with empathy for the protesters. Looters like they're like. They're in pain because I think a lot of. This is this is like I. I will say I'll also say this for the the for having more white people on this one. Is like this is the social media effect in a good way it's. Finally it's years of woke. Scolding kind of paid off it Kinda gets why we'll like. Like I think they just can't anymore be like. Well. There's they have nothing to do. and. A guy in a nice single got fucking suffocated in the daytime. Yeah like. You can't rationalize your way out of that H. is it so interesting to me watching the coverage because they do say things like this is a threat to our democracy and we need. I don't leadership and it's just like. I distinctly remember. Whatever team where you're from. There's a team in Philadelphia that won something or they were. They were projected to win some champion championship. I don't remember which one and they grease the polls. They grease. The Light Poles agrees the stoplights preparing for. Craziness and nobody calls it writing, and they were like lighting should on fire when they win and lose they like they are rioting, they loot, and no one ever calls it rioters because it's like giant groups of white men, being either upset that their team loss or happy that they won. Because maybe they don't win all the time, and there's so much award mad. Their team has lost for two hundred years. That's exactly what it is. This is they're. They're they're they lost? And this is the riot. What's a team that always flavored teams, the blacks, the players. Have lost finally they have had it or after the game. They are not liking it. Yeah, that's. It's. That simple thing like when right see it's like when white men do it. It's protests when we'll do it. It's riots or when Arab people will do it. It's right so whenever right the the COP, but I will say the coverage. Here's my thoughts about the coverage so. The Guy got arrested on CNN Omar Jimenez has follow me on twitter for years. And he would DM, he wouldn't. He would re tweet and I just thought he was some goofball. I literally thought it was like a local Canadian broadcaster, and then I saw them get arrested I. think that's the guy so I gave him a follow, so that's pretty onerous. That's pretty great. You try to bail them out now. Know but I gave a follow, and that's got something for a young kid. Idea game a nice happy birthday. I gave them A. Shadow a little bit I when things happen, and I'm dealing with the person like forty five minutes after an was the fucking best. So, there's there's that I find that the some of the Rock Assert Don Lemons. Like A, he was yelling about celebrities stepping up the stepping up to what who does I. don't I'm not curious what John Legend thinks that I know anything I know. All these people think no one's for this. Right? The okay, so then we'll get into a whole other thing, but. That was idiotic. The thing that I that that is I think irresponsible. The news is. Your experience where there is a thousands, if not tens of thousands of people marching. Peacefully in. And with some ethics and then. That's boring. It's just not. It's not a good TV. She's going, but. Every community walk through honked for us, collapsed for us from their balconies. Cheer us on I mean it was so like I kept saying like felt like Nwea like. Express yourself like member that it was just like everybody was. Four it! Everybody was for it. No one was against us at all. And then everyone starts sexing me like. Are you save my yeah drumline now? There's cars on fire binder. Does this so by the time it was done? I, remember distinctly looking towards air one. And then away and I was like. I don't know why anybody would be going over there. I, there is no good reason to go towards that police line. Maybe! You have a better reason than I do. But I really felt like my purpose was not to fuck shit up. My purpose is really to just offer my body as like a as part of the effort. That's all I meant like my. Mark! Yes there because a lot of the time I'll watch it and I'm like Damn I wish I could do something that was so easy. It was like why didn't know about it until then trayvon. Text me, I'm like no one fucking ever tells me Martin. I love outside so nothing. Wrong. Everybody had ask. Everybody was cool. Everybody was like. Do you guys need waters? Someone had everybody had waters handing out like granola bars. It was fucking great also. Sign there was so many sign was. Asians for blacks and it was. Funny. Like so problematic and also pressures of the. Yes Asia. We gotta talk about what other people. Here's ahead. I can't believe. How? Much people love destruction. Those just those even if you're. The skate kids. Those guys are so angry and pent-up. ADRENALIN JUNKIES I get. But adults that are into a cell fucking. It just seems like a bunch of. The the most of the lunar seem like eighth graders and homeless people can't I know? I don't fucking know. Very young kids Jerry very very unyielding. Ninth Grade. That's nothing to do now. We've been in krona. We've been locked down. We kind of countries starting to Kinda. Get Open again I think it's like weirdly Cathartic. I think now just taking on a lot of different meanings like outside of police brutality against the black community. Against this is. Everything I don't know just a bit of anarchy. This doesn't work. It doesn't work I was telling? Trayvon last night that that I almost feel like. By the way I'm on a group. Texas Roy Wood and Trayvon. Here's fucking. It's very funny and Here's a fucking trayvon use right for the daily show where it's a bunch of shows but. Roy Fuck in. A black woman in Roy's in Birmingham Alabama with his mom. And Black woman got her business. Smashed and whatever so like Roy put out a call on twitter, and and like was like the come help me clean. This lady was fucking awesome. Awesome. But. I was talking to Trayvon win. Roy was doing all that Cornish. Roy Royd left a chat. But. I was saying that I. Don't they can charge those guys? Do you think the cops? The protests are not in it. They I it's not at this point as also. This is like when you and your girlfriend arguing about the heat in the car, but you're arguing about the whole fucking relationships. So man I've been in those conversations. May! We were saying this about George Floyd this is about everything including slavery like especially slavery. It's everything it's at. It is an argument about everything and. It's getting to the point where I thought. I was like they're gonNA have to sign laws on the street. Yeah like that's how it feels. It feels like this is in perpetuity. Is specially if people aren't going back to work also. He feels strangely. Like Okay, I don't know how easy was to loot like the feels like the cops are so outnumbered when we that's the. Cops or yes, I didn't know how easy it would like. When you first? I stole when I was again. I I realized I was like a new friend Ranji. Tired. And then we stolen I was like. What the fuck you like! We just stole hellish it and We were like the next thing you know like. Let's go and we won't from every store. Don't think Oh, so many I couldn't believe how easy was it actually is so much harder to catch someone ceiling the thing, and then the third, and we did it like maybe three times, and then the fourth time I I was like twelve, Thir- made fourteen and I remember the fourth time my on argument, and she was GONNA to urge. We I was going to go with her, and she didn't call me. And then the next time talking, she's like I actually got caught and I was like Oh. My God like she's like. Had the I had to go to jail, not Jill, but whatever you know, your parents have to come and below and I was like. I didn't realize that you can get in trouble for it at the. Think these people like. I think I read. There is some like chick that threw a Molotov cocktail. A COP car in New York and he's getting charged with attempted murder and I think she's like feels like me at fourteen way, you guys. I'm getting getting score. Yeah, yeah, like you're gonNA charge me there were people on the news on the the live feeds of these riots. Coming out of the data store on Melrose. And the just got into a car and again the license plate is just right like the license plates more in focus than anything. Do you think people are going to get I? Don't know. I was saying I think they will, but then I also think. I mean they were overwhelmed the system. Yeah, I think it's I would overwhelm the system because it's like there, was they. They stopped the. Rioting and looting kind of on one block of Fairfax in the block was fight. Club and they didn't stop it, not because they. They didn't have I think they were just like they can't. It's like. It's almost like how. You can't shoot him. You can't. What are you going to kill all of us right? They can't kill it. They can't get every once more dangerous for them to go in. They can't kill them right, so they have to deal with you and it's too dangerous to deal with you. Yes, and it's like well. They have insurance. Why am I GONNA? Kill myself as watching cops get surrounded yellow. I don't WANNA say. You hate to go on a podcast and say it satisfied. You'd hate you'd never say that. I'm not I'm not calling for violence, but I think that. Anybody I'm on group thread, which is very. It's exhausting because everyone is saying this stupidest shit and. What, my takeaway from that one is! There's a lot of people have always opinions right now you know, but how are super? Silent when? Things are like people aren't just. That's not their to his looting and rioting. You know it takes a lot to get people as a whole the courage to even protest, you know some people are just. That's fucked up. I got to go to work. You know what I mean, and now we're protesting. And of course there's looting I. DO think it's fucked up I also in Minneapolis. The fact is like I feel like if you're going to loot and riot and destroy property if you're not destroying a police station like. I'm not calling for it, but when I saw it in Minnesota I was like that, make sense. I mean. It's really like then we all end up paying for it and taxes. It's a hard. It's and he. Can. Pay Y'all.

Get inspired and have a good laugh. There's three things I wanted to talk about cops being animals owners. White people should do. And I want to talk about what? What? Protesters should because if because they go, don't do don't whatever. Don't get violent, don't. And it's like all right first of all you, I you guys. I the fact of the cops are pushing anyone. During during a anti police, brutality, March is like guys. Did you not? Like what don't you get about this? It's like when you see a horrible driver in a fucked up dented car and you're like yeah. That's how you got that one. So. What, so if black people use their? Use their. It's my food. If Bible, used the levers of justice. It would if it worked out perfectly in fourteen months, it would be illegal to kill black men. As a cop, you mean exactly that's if things went perfectly. So. Fuck. Fuck it fuck that. Fuck you I, we've. There's a lot of James. Baldwin clips never care for the governor's. I'm could. and He. Dave was. Billy, Dee Williams told Dave stories about him in these fucking. Desserts, so they're back good. So. It's like how much patience do we have to have? Yeah, how much patience do black people have to have? Before before to say that our lives matter to have the fact that anyone's posting on social media is so date Chapelle won't even say it. He literally refuses to say it because he's like. I can't believe that that you are so remedial. That, you think that I'm so beneath you that I need to say my life matters is I won't even get it. I won't even. Enter, the the I won't even entered the discussion the other one. This reminded me of some. Jay Z. said one time I. he said this publicly. But we were talking about crabs in a barrel. Any goes. Yeah, but wire the crabs in the barrel in the first place. They're all GonNa die you like why the fuck are you putting us in a barrel? Like we didn't fucking do anything right here. We in a barrel. Yeah, exactly. So. Jay Z and Dave of the right idea by people. I don't know I don't know what the rest of them. So. My friend. Ally like. So. What recourse do people have. What I don't even like I was saying why so you're, listen to yourself. Explain to me what they should do and think about how fucking long and backward that is how long that would take for someone to, and that goes to that thing about the government, magically finding trillions of dollars like you have these magic levers that you don't tell us about until you want to use them. What about when we want to use them? You make it illegal for a cop to snuff me. On fucking television or not on television. Anywhere and well now they're white. People weren't doing that when the pandemic. Well. We simply. They tried it for like a day. Like you know what polack? Palaver it's and so. That's why I say that they almost need to sign laws on the street. Now that now the bad news is. In the sixties, there was leadership. Yeah, and now there's no leadership and last sort of protests that jumps to mind. Is occupy Wall Street where they wanted a flat? They WANNA. Know Bureaucracy. Not so no leadership. And the shit melted. It's not a way to run it so now. Say You pick a leader. I can already hear people saying that there are sell out and they've compromise too much. Like any compromise is too far. So the next step is what do. Again. I'm not even saying what to believe because what they want us so obvious and so fucking simple but. That's the part that I'm scared of. That's the part of the Mike Fuck. I. Don't know how that's going to play it because I don't even know who. I was talking to train about those like I. Don't know Dave and Stevie wonder I. I literally like who would people not turn on? The. We will not turn than we get back to what we said in pass podcast where it's like. Why do we put? We keep putting celebrities in the position of race, but okay. Give me a Comma Harris police again I know I'll give it a list. I'll give the list maxine waters. In takes money from tons of like. There's no one is no one can pass a purity test. Right but there's no a good example of someone that can pass a piece. On King. You know he wants to. He wants us. Oh. Listen he can. He's heart is in the right place. He does lost stuff. He does a lot of good. But you know Shaun King. The I just? Like in any of the necessity that like in different countries, like there's every leader Hama would be a sell out at this point. Do you know what I mean like Obama? The good thing is the DA of of the. The Attorney General of Minnesota's this Guy Keith Ellison. Black Dude dummy tried. He wanted to be the head of the. Democratic. National Committee and didn't get it, but I? I don't know I. Don't know who the new ago she today I really don't because I don't Obama He's to moderate Trying to think of just the one. Instead of having to concentrate on the person we should just come up with what we want a smallest what you want because then it doesn't matter what color you're. Pass it. Or Collard but creed even if it doesn't really matter as long as this gets passed I, think they probably should be blackboard I'm just saying if we. Knew exactly what was. Making a list. You. You said you had a listen. Live, you'll have. I don't even know what the laws that that's. The thing is. You need someone who's an expert. In this area finally. Like like you know this kind of like the show. I nominate Michelle, Alexander. Who wrote? Who wrote the New Jim Crow and is has studied it up and down should be just really well educated lawyers Michelle, exist and. Women. Would probably work who I'm kidding announcement you know Michel. Michele from. But We're talking about LAS podcast. What should we do? That's the thing I. Don't get what we said. Just get them in their pocket books. You know like people are allowed to. Like I think if who's WHO's they though? Sorry, the. The problem is dealing with the police is just such a symptom. It's not going to solve anything because it's like the whole justice, the whole the whole literally from the minute from the minute. They I'd say before they turn the sirens. It's like. The the surveillance state it's so complete. Well actually. You GotTa go actually go actually you gotta go act like there's an actual of where you need to go. To even start. Funding in law, I mean there's genie what's funny. Is that like? People say oh, system's fucked up. It doesn't work, but it actually works against. Resigned to work, yes, it's the thing that I thought of this week. Is Trevor No always saying. Between South African racism and in American racism. Is that in South Africa? Admit their racist. They had a name for it. When apartheid! Like. They had a great setup. That was a great like a name. Old Radio. No name racism what they call. They and here they act like they're not. It makes people fucking lose. Their minds eats like if you've ever been in a relationship and they won't admit to this behavior, and it's like. Yes, you're doing. It just is crazy and weirdly enough. You have all the evidence. You don't need this person. Do you? Don't, but I don't know why. I need you to admit and this. We do because they won't because. No we don't need someone to agree that. Break up when I can't break up campaign, you can't. You can't break. There's enough it's so total and so complete, and so, but we still want people to admit it. We plod when a white person goes like, and that's not cool. It's like like shown on the cool police. I can sit one kneeling guy. Thank just like guys I just want you to know. You don't give a fuck. I have another. Put a video out about making black friends, but I have more to where it's like all. These fucking woke TV shows, and like you don't fucking I I all these people posting and on social media I'm like I. Never see you around any of the black shirt. Where have you been? We I was thinking that for you. People that I. Think we both on. It's like. I'm like. Oh, it's almost like. If you can't go to your business, because there's the march going to happen, and you don't want it to get looted, so you just put a bunch of black lives. posters in a window just like. Don't fuck me shoes. Yes, but it's the it's the. It's the Maga-. Loves the blacks. And that's what all the will sound like. You have a fucking TV. Show I mean I'm GonNa release it where it's like. I before you do. Your weepy woke monologue. You better have some fucking black people and your writer's room and notches, writers, producers, and fucking bookers and light. Every department should be. Should have black faces in it every single one most people who are saying stuff for the first time even. It's like they have all the resources at their fingers, yes. Yes, you have the power much. Do you believe this I mean? How much change black lives that's what I mean. There's a whole other thing which is what? What should white people do in this situation? What should I'm not even saying white celebrities white celebrities I our. What do you think celebrities should do? Let's two parts. Here's a white celebrities argument. I'm a human being. These issues mean a lot to me and I want to show support. My argue my counterargument was. It just it's impossible for not to seem branded like branded content. Aunt does seem at this point. It's like. I don't want to pat myself on the back because I. This is the only area in which I will say openly to people. I'm way more moral than you are. This is the only area races, the only one and not even all racist. just black people like I. Am more I'm fucking more I do not raise my body, but I just I. Don't know it just didn't it never took in me racism never. TV In import whatever lot back. Yeah, I just didn't. It just didn't really work on it. So. I. Don't with white celebrities I don't want to say too little too late because it's like you now, everyone their first day and you gotta start somewhere. Swing like. motherfucker. Didn't see it. You didn't see you year. I know I can. Say All thought I was fucking weird. They, all was looking. For. And again I don't i. I I'm not taking. It would be like me. It's like with the me to Shit I knew I, could only. Go. The first step had to be the first anything I posted to be about me being a hypocrites or the disgusting. I can't talk about. Self! Yes, I'M NOT GONNA. Be Like Women I. Hold you up. I did do a woman's Day one, but it was again like you loved you. Ruins, yeah! But you you can say like hey. I haven't done enough in this and I'm I'm fucking embarrassed. Yeah, the this gave a real. Embarrassed and I I'm going to do better. Do. I think that's more refreshing than a pre written. You know like info-graphic thing or just a graphic suppose that's like a bit preachy or it's like it's a quote like one that's going around to to. Do a lot of. And you know I mean there's one particular quote that a lot of like instagram models and models or posting and it's is. It just kind of post them. You know but I don't know it's A. It's better than nothing because the on the right like, are we? Are We being critical of people? You know it's better to say something than to stay silent. but is it super? Refreshing. A black celebrity was saying that. That in some ways. What. White people are going through is like watching. It's like when your wife is giving birth. And, you want to empathize with the pain, but you know it's just your wife Sane. But. I don't think that analogy works 'cause white are. Causing the pain, so more caused the pain benefiting from pain and So to go you're. Out Oh baby, which again you are in your wife's case, but she's giving birth to a thing that you both like it's just not a one to one. Did you see that People are dragging Virgil abloh because he only donated fifty dollars ray-ban. Then forwarded me like his wedding spread. Let I didn't forward it to his marriage. area-wide Girl Oh well and he hit it I. Don't I'm not mad I? Don't care about this. Like that's the, that's the reason why only like dude is dragging him in like including. Yeah. It's real home. So I don't you know it's funny to? That's A. Dummy like just say the organization fifty dollars. If you. If he donated shirt, it would have been more of a contribution. Yes, and the funny thing is that I'm going to save them. I've never said in public before. So ESPN now is saying they stand with. And that's the thing now. Get a sand with us and. They stand with the even even though you know, wouldn't. They kicked me hill off and they wouldn't let anybody talk about a cap and all that shit so. My hair just got way. Worst and I'm Jay, so. So Yea Sports. Everybody's mad in so. There is a so I did any sports commercial? Madden and when I did it I was like fuck. I? WAS I. Didn't think that it was NFL. They just didn't occur to me until someone came up to me on Satin Museum from the NFL and I was like. Like. It didn't occur to me. So what I did was. I gave the money. I made for directing the commercial to Colin capper. Knicks Organization to give. To let school kids know their rights gave it to colleague, Avenue, organization and Lebron School because. That's the fucking. That's how you can be helpful and again I. Whatever I say that now. Because I feel like they'll be like. Good Brat. That's good, right. It's like a it's a fucking whatever it's. A humble woke humble woke brag. But. So when I see people doing I'm like. It's. I shouldn't be the outlier. And that's what I I made a longer version of the video, just put up like I shouldn't be the fucking out liar and I'm. And? I get down. It's like a little embarrassing approach. Erase of people based on I'd never did it for any other reason than. was friends with Dave and then fucking got in the whole world, but. It's not that fucking hard to hang out with black people but okay, but but. That's getting off track. Would you have? Let's say you didn't ever worked with Dave. You just worked in entertainment lot wipe. Show. My feeling with that has always been like. If you're in comedy, and you don't work with black people, it's like being in fashion and not working with gay people right? It's like who the fuck are you working within right? The best ones are black. And the best designers are gay and the best. I, don't. That's why people say like Oh. He does get in black crowds like Brag. That's tough. Yeah, it is, but I mean so if you didn't ever work. On a black show on a predominantly black, you know, run show And you most of the projects you worked on. Let's say were mostly white just by how things happened. Do you think you'd still have like how much of that influence your? How much was just your outlook on life? I Dunno I. That's the things I don't i. don't it's a chicken egg thing because i. don't I think that the reason? The thing I said in remarks like me, because they just like. I didn't give a fuck, but it turns out. I was sad. The. Day, but I'm also genuinely Dave, said I've never met more obsessed with fairness than you like I'm observing. It's too I'm like. Yes, it's fucking pain in the ASS. Wait, Oh yeah I know you're even it's torturous inside there. I wouldn't wish this. so I don't know I think it's partially that and it's partially like. It's a good experience like the thing, an videos like fucking Nice Nice. They're funny. What don't what I still don't understand what's not to like? Yeah, they are the. Same God I'm a hundred and fifty pounds I've never once thought I was going to get. beat up or like. I never thought I was more. I've never felt less safe with blacker than white people. Can ever. So I just don't understand why people start now. Don't the other thing is why we're going to be on. I feel so bad for myself. It's like. Fine. I send. Just start starting. If white people can get the feeling of what it's like to be. Around a bunch of black people. There are the only white people the white person there. I, think that. If you can really just get that exposure, you don't have to go befriend black people. I think it'd be weird, but I also think what you're. What you're proposing is very hard to do. If you don't have any sort of. Person Invite. You just go to concert well. That's what I saint I've just go to a bar. Go to be black neighborhood of your job, and it's basically like the loading dock the in mail room like just go out. Be like yellows get like a block where they live, and then just and then that's the funny thing is though we really empathize completely when you don't get a promotion at work or you when kids are leaving someone out, we like we're so. We so understand the human experience, and then when it comes, racism is like well. That's not a thing anymore I. mean not not no one's saying that, but it's so hard for people to understand. How take make it not race and make it whatever the fuck you understand. where? You weren't allowed to join like a guys. Thing or I'm not saying it's the same thing. Ten Black. If you like why people view like the underdog, black people are the underdog underdogs in the history of unders. Dogs like Jesus Christ you WanNa, talk about a fucking underdogs, so what? That doesn't make her friendship, but it makes it makes to me. I always just seemed like this simple recipe for empathy, just simple, fucking simple. It's not even. And on the night was like you fuck black. I'm like that's got nothing to do with. It literally got nothing to do with it. There's raises people at five. Years of course it is nothing. It's only right to call them bitch. I think I was right. I'm just quoting. So. Yet so I don't. All these latter day, white people. You know. Welcome. Welcome, you're their leader. Welcome but like. Okay I. I. Just don't I just don't understand it I never and I'm not I'm not trying to fuck in. Pat Myself on the back. I truly don't fuck and understand. I don't understand it I. Don't there is like the? It's intimidated to talk to people that you're not? A part of their specific group, but maybe that's a good thing about comedy. Is that there is? fucking in a pile, a bunch of you all background. H is you know I think really like the PR. Hassle change like. Very bad PR. You know it's always the. Disproportion. It's racist white racist. Camping. Hated you was your publicist basically? Yeah, yes. That's it's. It's turning. Donovan was yelling at me and I'm like. Donald everyone who fucking follows me as already liberal. They, don't so! For me to post about this. There are already everyone agrees with me or they want to to seem like I'm not changing mines. Yeah I. I'm literally Lousy asking you to do it. He's just he's just mad. He's all said I know he's just upset and he's like he's just upset and I'm like well. The problem is there's like that's the thing mean. You can't even say what we should be calling for A. Because it's so massive, it's so massive. It's like cool. Let's get the was like Yo in the end like the cops are have the least amount of power. Yeah, he can take away life. You know that is powerful, but. Is like Sarin Four. Contests the the. It's the tease. The tip of the spear is the is what a compass right it's the it's. He's the end. He's the business end of a apparatus and and. So. Yeah, I don't so I, get I fucking so I just I. Just Kinda let him yell at millions like get your contribution the ball. No I said he really funny thing. I'll tell you right now. If you understand where I'm coming from, it's very funny. If you take this out of context, you can make a a A. Youtube video about what an Asshole, but. But he was saying like San Diego. He's like you gotTa. Do I go? Easy for you to say all you have to do this week is be black. And you do all your fucking Huey Newton just by black. You're automatically stokely Carmichael the fuck. Do you want me to like? I'll give to the bailout funds I I'll do all the shit, but the bottom line is. I was had this wrote this down before the George. Floyd is like. How do we get white people to not be afraid of black people. That's the fucking bottom line is like how and I think I've done this joke on here before, but it's like a lot of times when white people white people see black people as. Physical incarnation of the all the fucked up shit. White people have done historically. So it's like they should call the cops and be like. Yes, Karma's were walking. Toward may light like so do you get? White people. To not to not. That like into not. or not even change of not to change at all when there's a black presence. And that I. that's the thing that I. Truly don't know that's the thing that's. A thousand years old, but it's not again like white people wincing is. A fucking system. Sorry, it's a symptom. It's just like the end result of a Lotta Shit. So how do we change? You know dishes the top I. that's the problem it's like. It's. It's exhausting to even think about because you'd think about it from all the arms of governments and also. The analogy, it's like harder than climate change. It's climate change. We know what to do Johnny climate, we just need to switch to carbon, and then people say gay or Nay. This one it's like. Half the shit. If you say, we'll look at all, these things that are rigged you can. You're not going to be able to convince a lot of people of that that matter you know like. You have to convince a lot of people that a lot of Shit's rigged against black people. That's that's almost impossible. Rush limbaugh bricks today and was trying to literally said about. It's it's just like dealing with a fucking. Unrepentant! Rainy. A. He tried to go like I. Think it's wrong and you guys are all. An example of how America works for black that you can make it if you want. It's like. And then gentleman said something about him being not, he sits on my white privilege, and then he's like why don't believe in white privilege art will lend? Let's end the discussion if because he can't now built up an entire belief system. By the way the name of the episode will be Racial Climate Change. He's built up an entire. FUCKING PYRAMIDS OF So in order to even white supremacy is, it's like A. It. Also, but it's so big. It's so big! It's hard to even. Where do you start that? You do have to start somewhere but. The funny thing is rush Limbaugh I'll never forget when Osama bin, Laden got killed. He applauded Obama. And he's like that's. This is like a good day for data all his fan base everyone wrote in. Why the fuck are you putting Obama like it's so deep deep-seated. Even rush limbaugh one day, said something good about Obama, just about literally about Osama. Referring to. Everyone. He got so much shit, and then he had to like kind of backtrack. It's. Not a good day. Guys? fucking great broadcaster. Voice I mean amazing and pauses and. He's a professional, but it's like he's also rich off this shit I mean. Wow, go against. What I don't understand is like. Where do we start? We have to start we start. Because then you think. Oh, well, we have started the top, but then it's like do so many grassroots efforts that do lead to change, so we have to start at the bottom. Of US on the receiving end of it. And change it from within, but then like who's leading US then. He's not even going gonNA matter because. You know civil rights. Act passed, and you can soga black people. There's there's so few cops that that get prosecuted. Yes, and that's another. That's a culture that's that's where it isn't so much about them. Being hip of the spirit. That's its own. That's all of. The videos of like watching the COP. MONTAGES A cops shoving people and kicking people in Fires and pushing women down and all that stuff. It made me. It's the thought of having a conflict born. It reminded me of which is cops are largely working class. Irish Italian they're like. Guys went to Catholic school way and. They are the biggest bunch of self pitying motherfuckers. Are we talking about east coast kind because the east coast kind. A So fucking obnoxiously soap healthy I mean it's self-aggrandizing. Out here every day. Taking your handcuffing me any regulation. It's the same NRA thing. It's the same corporation thing when they go. We you tax us at all then we're going to have to move to Portugal, go. Fuck in. To Portugal, you pussy as motherfuckers. Yes, cop, sorry that you can't kneel on a guys fucking neck. Sorry! Is that a huge? Is that the difference in your life, so then I looked up. Fatalities on the job versus homicides on the job being number people that the killed versace nurse's aide De die you WANNA guess it's not I. Don't even know if these are the right steps to be looking at. But how many cops per year do you think die on the job? Less than twenty, hundred fifty OK okay. How many people thousands of at least two thousand? So, let's tend to one. And yet. They feel sorry for themselves. WHO's more at fucking Dane in at risk here? Clearly, the the the the suspect is more at risk. So why do you guys feel fucking? Why do you get to feel sorry for yourself you by the way you work for the victim? And you still. Really like I know. If they don't fucking. But all the other thing I was GonNa say is they work for the victim and most of the time? The victim is drunk on drugs or mentally ill. Yeah, what's your excuse? Because these mother fuckers are fucking animals. you see some of these videos and you're like like I always I wasn't. Are the suspect. Do I just thought most cops are like? Maybe they're stressed and maybe they're scared. And, this wasn't the yet I saw. Was Not about people that were scared. It looked like. They. Just look like a bunch of. They look like they were hazing a fraternity. Yeah! A few weeks ago in the valley, a guy, there's a call like someone had a gun. And a black dude who I think he has mental health issues saw cops and like ran. Not a great idea, but whatever? And they just that's all that happened. They got a call. They were heading towards it. Guy Running, he's running in a guys like you can hear them on the radio like okay. No, I got I got him down. As he's running. A guy takes a T. The cops seeks out in air fifteen, and just like shoots him like an animal and they find. They don't let they don't call an ambulance. They make sure he's dead. He's dead as a fucking doornail and they. And so everybody so their family was just like. Why did you shoot him? He was unarmed. The yeah, we don't know if he threw it away and everyone's like you'd you kill them like an animal on like just a great like, just a nine one one call of somebody. You didn't know it was him. You didn't get to the place yet. And the first instinct is like taking the fuck down like not hey, let's try to mitigate this to see what's going on. Let's take the right. His wife with with vibrantly. Don't deescalate. They just annihilate. That's just like you're going to die. Will they de-escalate with blind Bulan island and and and. Yet they fucking guys shooting white people in their houses. Like light up. You see that one. It's like fucking because they're also fucking meat heads. Thing, you realize like Oh. You guys are fucking meat heads like the guy who was like fuck you bitch, and then shatter, and then in San Jose, and then they looked up his salary, and he makes two hundred fifty a year. With overtime right so. Trayvon was saying it's like yeah, that's how they get black dudes to become cops. Because the money's really good money is good with overtime, but then Roy was saying in Alabama like my brother-in-law has to fucking be a cop and a state cop to make ends meet so it it varies from I. Know Cups here like do tons of like for the Oscars for the grammys like that their overtime. That's kind of like. Like. moneymakers is doing stuff for shoots and stuff like that, so it's like they. It is a working class job. Yeah, you can make a lot of its upper working. It is gust, but there are some praising. That's the prompt to their. Can't we are looking like a cop in Newark has a very different life than cop in Fucking des Moines. You know what I mean and so we really have to look at. This what they have to deal with their job, the environment of their job right and to me we have. When I lived in Europe no, the cops amount that respected their like. Losers there. It's like whatever security guards yeah just A. Fuck. LIKE COPS, don't go up to you. They don't go like what's going on here. I'll be buying their fucking business. They're lame and no one kind of respect them and in in America. They really have this weird level of respect, no matter Terry and our heroes and you're like. Dude they're not actually well liked I get it. You're you're not going to be super well, but they have this weird like big energy, whereas if you're just some hometown, fucking cop versus you know it just. It's almost like all are made here. You're doing. They're protecting and serving and we have to hold them up, but really not and I don't I. Don't know how to change that because this country really does. Believe, cops. COPS are. They're. They're it's it's. The what happens is politicians. Politicians are afraid of having the police union against them. At least union I didn't even think about, and like they turn their back unto Blasi, and just like okay, because again there oh. Yeah, they did these fucking drama Queens. What no will then. I'll sleep outside their. Those kinds of guys like well. No, then I. Won't on that I guess shooting. Even come here. It's my birthday. It's all just like this self pitying right? and. So politicians over that speaks of the climate change issue where it's. It's almost like if you're not. If you're against, you can't be like four. Your beliefs against cops at the same time. You can. Meaning like? We don't have to be on the same page on everything to just agree that there needs to be police reform, but also police reform means you're against a lot of other things you know. It's like if you're all kind of buying into like. Police and the military. And going against that. I just think it's not very popular and lot of social circles. It's not. How do we get those people? Is. Popular on the right except the extreme right, which thinks that there it's. Terrific and police state. Yeah, but the right is like protect my I have a story. The. Chat like? I don't. Looting doesn't bother me I just it just into to white people. It's like it's like the broken windows thing like. If. They do this then. What's next then they sell it. That's what's next there going to fence the shit. They're not going to rape. You're not going to break into your house by the way you're not gonNA believe this is why people but the last people who were allowed to break into peoples, houses, and do whatever they wanted were white people in the south on black houses so again. It's that Karma thing. Of if they do this then what's next because I know what I used to do? Which is rape black women. For fucking no reason. Sandy how I know too much. I almost don't want to give people to I can't I almost can't do this. is a lot of race emails. We should just keep it to this because. I. Don't know what it is just too fucking confusing in. It feels weird like when meanwhile we're driving here like. You, know you got armed guards. You got the National Guard right a few blocks away from me. it's. Creepy. I'm like kind of exhausted emotionally from Dr, mothers. The. It's hard for way. Neal's tired of racism is luxury Neil. What a luxury you guys get money. You guys okay. So, what do you think's GonNa Happen? Do you think this is just GonNa fade away and we're all going to go back to carrying I. Feel like this isn't GonNa fade away as quick as we think I don't think it's GonNa Fade Away I. Mean I think that? There's a new reason to speed up all the Kovic it. which is, we gotta get? These mother fuckers back at work. but I just looked at my phone and sit. Trump's at the that that the protesters and rioters or acts of domestic terrorists and he's gonNA threaten US military. Which is great? We're GONNA Outnumber I. Mean That's the thing is like. I said that the cops in this case are like ventilators and people are covert, so you're not going to be able to. You're not gonNA have cops. The fucking law! That's the thing and that's the thing is like about these protests. As that I realized when we would take over St I. Mean Cops Cops? Cars had no choice near just like. If they were smart. They were like. You. Know. They know they can be overtaken. Believe me. Look at fucking. Go on twitter now, but that's what I'm saying. Is that at some point? If trump wins the keep escalating this? People are now in the mood. People have time to got all the. Time literally here for their here for it, and they're about it and it's like. Do you want this to go there because it will go there like we are due for? fucking tank versus situation, yes, and yes, like do do most most are mostly guns and white hands. Yes, but a lot. There's some in Brown and black hands. And so yeah like if you're just changed the fucking law, that's what we're saying. Change the law start. There's gotta be a they're literally needs to be A. Paris accord for climate for racial climate I mean they're just has to be treaty yes. Beat something because I and I I've said this before, I. I don't see going back to, but I don't know man. The thing is though they now. Okay. We all have curfews, right? There's the curfew in Beverly Hills is one PM and like four one PM. For Business. PM for people battled business. Covered this really bad. Because, not only. Are you not losing money? You're getting loaded. Yeah, you're losing your actually losing march. So what do you do if you WANNA protest like there was a sit in for today for example and I was Gonna go. And then. MMA. They move the curfew up and they're like. Everybody caught outside after curfews getting arrested. Be Arrested I. Don't want to be i. mean you gotTa Get Outta here basically? I mean we'll be fine. It's just it's more for like people along, but I'm just thinking like what what do we do if there's a curfew? And it's not gonNA. You're just watching. This march on Bundy. Is here. Like near you bunny on the Bundy in Wilshire. Talking. It's wild and seeing it's depressing. It's it's like A. It's trying to find an Arthur Miller quote. I'd something and interview. It's like. Constructive? Destruction. Like. It's is your. He said it will is not gonNA find it. Now. What what are the? What are the memes? What are the Arthur Miller means? Not As many Arthur Miller. He was like literally talking about his parents in an area, but that's what it's like To me. Yes in quotes events. Is just. It's a IT'S A. IT'S A. It's a real. Drag but. It just it's a little bit of this is what it's a little bit. See Matters It'd be black I'm not mad at all. I'm not even a little bit. I'm not even the even the. DUMBEST Luder. I'm not matter. No I'm not I was like dude. I'm not going over there like yeah. I'm not looting scary I. Just don't want to be arrested or get a rubble rubber bullet in my fucking face. That's the only reason why I'm not nab I. Just it's not my thing, but I get it I. Get why it's. None of this is surprising. Yup, we did enough time. Hold on, let me say say how. But what impact our? Champ notional our twenty Neal's exhaust. God give me a massage. It's like I marched Neil took up. Yeah. He marched up to his third full I. I don't. WanNa! Be Fun or something. You know what I mean like. I don't want to be like hey, and then because I also feel like the. We covered a lot of the shit in the letters and we'll answering next week. And the letters the the letters. They're all race related. More ATUCHA, goes. Have Patrick coming at you? Also quick. Thank you for some people are sending me then Mos are they really? Just for so thank you. You didn't have to do that, but I appreciate it. It's very sweet and. We just got the best listeners. Are. They do it and they're the care about race. They've been on the ship to care about race. If I remember at the beginning of as one person made a comment on Abba was like us like they talk about race weight. Like unsubscribe now eighty.

Indigelumbus Day

"It's the building block of ice cream civilization without vanilla we. Oh hello. We're arguing everyone. Now. We were GONNA, do an ad for thing but. Bianca what have you been doing? You know every week. Every week I don't have an answer and I just defer back to you blank out I blink out every time like I. I wrote I put mine on the list. But I'm going. To start. because. It's It's on the lessons tennis Neil now nail what does that mean? Neil elaborate? It means that when Neil has gone to Thailand for his vacation holiday. Christmas new years it's Neil funny. elaborate. I don't spend money but on. New Year's and Christmas, I'll blow really blow her out. And and and Last off and go to a really pop it off and the at one of the places I go to call try Sarah Tr. was, a are a town insane prices for this fucking insane like where you're like fuck you they have a tennis court and lessons and I take lessons and I don't show it here. Month kind of athletic people wouldn't believe it. Every tennis coach had and they're not just they're not just going. They're not doing. They're not women talking about Pena's they actually have also them. Five brothers. So we play sports so I played tennis and I decided to take a tennis lesson this past Saturday and liked it and I really like your hand. Yes. Santa Monica California. Lincoln and. And Wilshire. If you WANNA come watch. Week. I have a nice forehand. Most people have a nice forehand and backhand. Like. Like You hate to say retarded person. Hey. They separate thing that I should put down the list and I forgot. I was talking to a friend of mine and she was saying that friends of hers her super, Woke Friends flag her whenever she says crazy or insane 'cause that's the next round. No I will give up. Crazy. Well, I won't. It's hard enough are worded I know. I know I'm still riding with it. Off Air but. So you can't say crazy and you can't say insane which is a whole other issue. It's too. It's because it's disrespectful to people with mental illness, but they don't want to be crazy either. Bianca crazy is not a is not a fucking. An appraisal it's not a diagnosis. It's a it's an adjective for it's a lot of these are just diagnoses from the fifties right there like retarded. Was it just diagnosis crazy diagnosis like Eric Eric was diagnosed for women which I think was we should maybe bring back free. Weights more about this backhand. Neil. With four hand the key with tennis that I didn't know is you can't you watch pros. Looks like do the scream? I'll tell us a one of my famous arena stories after this. You have to wait till the balls in right in front of you, and then you I was doing it way early. End Up doing moon shots. You wait till. It's thing and you put your left foot for another thing I did not know left foot forward so it's way more like Baseball or some shit or golf, and then back hand to hands which right there is a problem I inner walk which I didn't tell the teacher but that stays here stays on the podcast and then you. It's more mechanical like. I thought your backhanding IAM. This backhand, the ball's coming this way night Bouche no I meant like this. What do you think is? That it's the back end. I it's back backhand getting confused. You're getting are getting I'm over here. I'm scared left hand your looks like your right hand. So, if you hit a forehand, it would be to my backhand. Might for him anyhow. Anyhow. Honey let's not let's not get hysterical shouting. That was enjoyable and tell off I skulled two different groups of people. One of them was the people who were charging seventy five dollars a ticket for my show, and then adding a seven dollar tickets each ticket. And then charging thirty dollars for a chicken sandwich and then. Adding a feed of that. A chicken chicken sandwich it was like, what are you doing and the guy's like? Well, that's what we we don't have to be ticketmaster like we know they were evil and then everyone's like. Well, it's different when I know. A cartel cartel right the reason why they make that is the reason why you're doing it to make as much money as possible. They're not doing it. There's not a difference between a low like a small group selling tickets and ticket master. If you're just charging fuck ton of money and a service, I mean, what is really service nothing? It's it's like. So what I always want to say to banks banks going. So let me get straight. So you guys have installed ATM's all across the world and they're all computerized and yet they you're going to charge me a fee to deal with the computer. But if I deal with a human being who asked to sleep and poop and all that other Shit P. That's free but the computer so you guys would be losing money on these. You're probably Emma. These computers must cost you forty grand a year based on what you're charging me. My thing is Bianca. It's what I've always thought and then I have to wedge in the Serena story because I still haven't told it. It's. A B minus tops. I have some money I don't WanNa Gouge the people that like me. I just don't want to gouge the people spayed David Spade actually wrote on my instagram thing if you WANNA get gouged come to my show. Because he doesn't care. He doesn't care. He just doesn't. He's from I don't know I just feel like and he has way more money than me. But I think he grew up single mom I. Think it's people get shit in them. That's like I see. I need all the money. I can get like good people are like, no no give me the money. Yeah. But then I remember when Louis becomes to the store, he would always sold tickets through his website. No service no service. Yes. But he would have people come through and count that. Shit. Yeah, he's like, no no. I'm not making a ton of money here. So there's not going to ensure that people weren't being chassis. Okay like squeezing in people. It was like not coast comical. I've been doing comedy clubs and one of the waitresses whispered to me. Seats. Like. During like between shows like. Stitch. Story. Yet so Louis was. I actually thought of that an hour ago how more Louis it came to tickets, and again, he had some lapses in other areas. Serena Williams one time told me Bianca that she would make noises. She makes more noises when she's losing. Which is funny. Like. When I'm losing I, make noise which. Is. This is something funny about that, and if that's if that's the story don't. Start she didn't scold anybody and I scolded by the way I scolded the guys who did all the curtains? Because they because it took them two months. Yeah and the guy would. It's it's Adam Kurla had a show called to catch a contractor. Oh. My God which I heard I was like that's the greatest I deliver who was on some Rinky dink network and never never went anywhere but. These guys are. Above the wall. Yeah. Oh I watched judge Judy I'm an avid judy watcher and the amount of. Construction workers that just didn't finish the job and guess what they're entitled to the money they got not. We'll see let's say they got a half. So usually pay half and then they spread out the payments. So by the end of it, then you get the final payment. If you've only gotten paid for have. And they only did half the work we get to keep the money for some reason that feels rude. It's it's it's. It's not because they did work. But they didn't do all the work they didn't get paid all the money. It's so off the okay. I wasn't listening correctly they they don't get all the they got then get the full amount. They get paid but still it's like if you If you leave a job unfinished fuck you. You should be able to get any money. Do you have the guy would took fuck can. He would. He would I you owe me this and I'd be like I literally email but I go where do you get these numbers from and then somehow when he go over them, he'd take four hundred dollars off. Yes twice because he knew I was like what? So, I, finally he the guys and I told you this off their last week. I could tell all the guys who you know when they go I gotta go to get a part. because. They didn't know what the fuck they were doing to begin with. So they would go I gotta go me every one of the guys had never done it. Had never done the thing he had the the track for the curtain. He'd net they had it in three pieces. So they weren't lining up and the thing would catch and I could hear the guy the other day. Shit. It was making me laugh so hard because he's very like her. Neil Shit. Like, Oh, this is not good deals on Angie's list like a I mean me by the way I'm not GonNa say what list I got these guys. WanNa Times it was the get them. They get they try. Guys go on those lists to take to go off a-list. Yeah to go. Hey, we don't get. Like gentlemen now now I realize I have no recourse. Now do we have what refund? No one's GonNa Refund you want a refund I said was like, Dude, you the promise every guy you sent had never done it before everything it would have been better off. What did this? What's the resolution there judge? Judy there is no resolution. There's I mean yeah, maybe it's got done. But by the way you're not gonNA believe this I left a bunch of trash. Another big one yet no. I mean when I read invaded my condo. We need. We don't have all the fixtures and like okay. So they stopped working on it for a month and then a month later like, Hey. Can you finish like we're almost done. I was like Yeah Oh. You know I realize we don't have all the fixtures I lost my mine last night and it was like you didn't victim months ago go get the fixtures I don't care where you find out go get them and take your money to get. This is handled on on like Shaker cabinet is very upset. They just they think. They're just bad liars and the people the people are very intimidated by construction people. Like a half cock like I. would. Never held A. Tool. You get swindled yeah. You they'll just do anything. You're like, okay. Sorry guys I mind. I got two thousand dollars funded because. I was like I'm out of how many Oh out of a lot but they did the work but I was just like you let apartments that there for a month for for for handles put on the handles you have they're missing three and they did so did no work for the three and I it just they they could just fuck if you're not paying attention essentially I think they also they saw they. Because I'm a single guy I'm kind of like Yeah Jaka. Did you see did see the debates Did I. Did you. Did you see what the only takeaway people got? I mean that's the whole point sadness of even politics. Is and I say Americans. Is the only ever live but. Because I don't think people anywhere else. It'd be like. This is joe important tangible plot. The funny thing is I've lived outside the country I've mentioned it. Ever on his podcast, most places don't have a two party system. Let's please. Onto now, mostly like four party, five parties system. So it's not. So it's more specific perfection. But it. It does break up the division you know. So it's not just like us live culture leads really. The fly I truly didn't even see the fly I called the fly just WanNa. Say the previous episode somebody said that They did somebody somewhere I saw. People. something. So I don't think people remember this Thi- made names I would've made me but the fly showed up on the twenty sixteen debates it landed on Hillary. The I was GONNA. Yes. And now I was GonNa tweet or say something like, Hey, you know if you're gonNA say that. Like a fly landing on pence is just so we're clear is dumb as when they say like Obama smells like Sulfur Life said that Alex Jones said it. Smells the beast. And it's so it's like saying. Sequel Get mad when like evangelical will go. There's tornado because of the queers. And it's like that's as dumb as saying there was a rainbow because of Kobe. It's all dumb. It's not. Leave Kobe and it was h Ford Forty, twenty, four eighty not believe in coincidence. And then Kobe came down and that was the name of. Its all sit I. If. I'm believing them then Billy Graham or whoever has as much validity as the the Kobe people. Or like then they passed the law and I looked to my left and what do you know as a sheep sir? Okay. No. Well, it's it's similar like the. Cove you're like, yeah cove. I was in Mexico City I went to where the Hindu Guadalupe the leading our lady Virgin and they, and then I found out what the deal was with her. A little far. Fetched. Religious, story. Farfetched. UMEDA tell me. like so you pick some roses and then a like a angel appeared on your Apron. It's it's it's things on toast. Any these. Tortillas or just it's so it's like clouds in the sky pitiful pit of like, no no you can't say that they're dominate your smart when when you're symbol is marked none of it works. I've decreed. None of the none of the systems work the. Takeaway from well no I was just watching it. Either thought that pence and trump are really good debaters if you don't know anything. You have to not know anything but manner those guys. You have to strictly not know any information, right but pence is fucking soldier. He's our he's pious. He does sound like he works for NPR. I'll tell you what he used. He was he was radio guy for like a decade. He's a good boy of course does that's what I'm saying like they're good debaters. If you didn't know everything they said was a lie. You be like these guys. That's why was like it was a runaway no one. It wasn't a runaway they by the way. They went on CNN afterward and they ten people who how many people there was clear when our AP will raise the hands how many thought was Kamla for how many parents for? Its everyone's just just like now. That's what I was saying like trump he. Yes fine a binding win. Yeah. And same with Kamla and she was all that like. Like. I'm speaking some. There's a nice letter about you for that. Okay. But all the shit that liberals like like she is the Queen of. And Guys. So why are you fuck in? It's not gonNA pick voters off in western Pennsylvania Ohio where it's still tied. I remember data was going like man Ohio's the bellwether, the controversy. Why would you brag about a fucking state you happen to be in? Like any, BRAG Area like bragging about a thing that you did. Not, like you know our my town has the highest rate of I. Give a shit if you did it great but like it's a cloud, go fuck yourself. It's not going to help get. It's not gonNA make Sassy doesn't. Isn't worth. One point three votes. You just need to persuade people where they are which liberals can't even. Fathom how someone could be conservative. Yeah, they can't even. Talk that we talked about this on podcast. They can't say you can't imagine why someone would be antiabortion or want lower taxes or want to close the border you can't imagine it. Yeah. Fuck. You talking about it's not that hard to imagine. No. Especially, if you leave your liberal bubble, it's really I feel like people often get it more but la New York. Even though there's a lot of conservative people in New York, they're not that conservative. They're also know where you, WanNa, be folks. there. You don't like Albany. Yes and they're not even in Manhattan therein therein the Bronx. Coins. but but. Yet they can't. I had a good a a moment of indication which is sweeter moments. I can get. Kim I if you've got a personality my. Woman I know who was a volunteer for Bernie? And now she's volunteering for Biden. And I said like so. Now that you're doing, she's doing like know. Canvassing on. So I now that you're for Biden what do you think Bernie and she's like? The more I deal with like. Centrists and Conservatives Bernie had no fucking now like no fucking. But do you think you had a chance in twenty six? I feel to it was like so weird I feel like a burning versus trump would have been more plausible than. Now, I think he would have lost the popular and I. I think it have just lost everything. You wouldn't have won the popular or the or the electoral. College the. The. Yet you have. It's she she the my from it was like, yeah, it's like. You're asking people for like eight transformation and it's too big. A thing I told you when I did that when I did that. that. March at the Oakland port. Authority. In the long the like and Brown longshoremen that were like via limb. About stereotypes and then a trans fluid sort of person I don't know they were. Were there what they. I don't know. It definitely don't know day identified as something else than they. and. The longshoremen we're losing on megaphone. He was like all right brother speak and the. You'll just assume gender anyone I'm sorry to the sister. For Colin her brother he had no idea what was going on. He was so confused and. I personally believe that he will stay confused forever he's an old that works at. He don't. They don't even know what you're talking about. He really looked at A. person had a beard and to handle Jamaica man that uses a computer sometimes sometimes but he doesn't really know what the fuck is happening. He doesn't. He doesn't believe that it went to the the email went he doesn't have. The next time I talked to him. He said he had gotten that like there's now there's no Sebastian's joke about his dad's setting up computer and museum houses a foot pedal. Like that's absolutely right. I I thought of another Sebastian story while you're saying. This story. John Legend had a party. Eight years ago or something. That's a whole story John Party years ago and John, Sebastian Insurance John and Chrissy. and. So at the end of the party, it's just me Sebastian John and crazy and this like young black head, right? And I look over at Sebastian talk with young black kid and it's just the five of us in our house as. I mean, how do you get a name like Frank Ocean How'd you even get that name? And just trying to explain the name Frank Ocean Sebastian because he wasn't frank wasn't had didn't have any albums out just was called Frank Ocean and had a demo and trying to explain that's what that guy at the port authority was going like what Franken? Would what do you got? I mean, how do you say you're born Frank Ocean Ocean I mean, that's what a name this guy's got. I mean when I just the look everyone's like, how dare YOU INDIGO When he was like I'm sorry to the system. For calling him a brother I was like. Yes go you're never. GonNa get that it's it's meeting them where they are and trying to appeal to the the things you have in common. You're not going to shame with side I and. Shouldn't we do it? Like McDonald's commercials you know McDonald's commercial always have a black one white one even Asian one depending on the markets because all the market different. Feel like politics should kind of be because we can all agree we want the same things, but we don't want them marketed to us the same I would. Yeah I was talking to a guy. Said something about the day on twitter and somebody said something about. He works in solar energy. And I wrote back to my go you know you would sell more panels if you were dirty all the time. Yeah. Like an oil person higher all the coal mortar yes. They just think it's like some American. One type of energy is America almost sexual. And European, and one is heterosexual un-american. Dirty. Yeah. One is gritty and dirty and you get you get covered in in dust and oil, and you gotta use a special soap and learn as. Yet he's and one is just some shit on your roof that guy installs once. But. It's because it looks queer. The word for it. They won't. They just feel like I don't like that. I don't trust that. There are so many more jobs in clean energy now than in coal or fracking like the growth is all in in renewable, but people are like, no, you're gonNa tell me what job I can what's good what's like? Hey, we can do it. You'll get just as dirty. Cool but that's the thing it's like rolling none of those jobs are. Nice jobs they`re Jobs. And that's the weirdest thing. It's like come on have foresight week especially, clean energy can be expensive. So we can actually manufacturing in America you know doesn't have to be outsourced somewhere like they can. That's not even the issue anymore the like those factoring is. That, you can invest in this industry and you know you have some sort of. Longevity like career longevity because it's not really. Specific it's like anybody can get some coal out the out the ground. We. Americans issue, which is the least the job that takes the least qualifications they expect the most. Stability and. That is. What hidden streets WHO THEIR THEIR LEVELS It's the COP thing. It's a level of self. Pity. Well document. ME. What's one of the guys said a thing that you're gonNa tell me what's a good job and what's not a good job? Yes. That job fucking stanks buddy and I say this from a place of decency I don't I don't call me crazy I don't want you to take a tiny train a mile deep into a whole. Yeah, I again I that's crazy when you could basically just be laying tile in the desert. And we'll come we'll get your shade. Here's the bad news and you're not gonNA get black lung. Are You mad? You'RE NOT GONNA GET BLACK STILL UPSET I love my Maiocco COUPLA. These dumb fucking loyalty to these jobs that are fucking awful jobs. Awful jobs it's weird. We have this hasn't heartland. There's this. My Dad. Did it is dead this lineage joking. I was like Americans don't have a lot to hang onto in terms of history. So for them, it's like that's what my family does. It's the conservative thing. It's there. It's in the title they're conservative. They just don't change anything just how things are now I feel safe I'm fine. We're GONNA serve it and Progressive WanNa make progress and serves. No. No No. No blacks I don't want. A President I don't want black vice president I don't want. It's like that joke do when you're like, no one does drugs and gets more conservative. Yeah. I was thinking of Dave's joke about. Call. Where he does Absolutely absolutely for the UNINITIATED. He is doing Yosemite Sam to the vocal tick. You lay there. fucking. Vocal things. Next to each other, I noticed I go in one, thousand, nine, hundred dollars a day but go year fucking bugs bunny. He, didn't even know what it was like your fucking bugs bunny he's doing yosemite the whole Warner. Brothers Library has implanted itself on. He then says he sells himself as bugs bunny I want the streets to know those mobs. Damaged real poor bob and then have a lot going on. did have a Bob Kirk Co occurred Kebob.

Who isn't his family is well first of all like a dozen emerge jail just in the last four years and everyone else who. Who? Ever. Lindsey Graham all these he just makes people's fucking lives. Worse and if you don't go to jail, you're greatly reduced. You're fucked. Reputation is reputation your your reputational year you've got. A. You've got a skull fracture. A reputational skull fracture where it's like, yeah, it's the Indian. Well, there's GonNa be some sweet. And like no, I'm good. I'm fine and. You don't. By the way every separate side issue, there's an APP, it's an APP called figure one go on the APP store figure one, not an ad. It's basically A. Medical. Pictures and diagnoses and ranges from heart to like foot injury. From Grocer, the picture. Some are quite. Quite quite Coghlan's. But if you're into it so what is for to diagnose yourself or ditches medical? Random medical cases that doctors and. Nurses and people will post as. As like this is interesting. Oh, this isn't for you to get clarity on what's ailing you. Just, fucking rubber neck and. I, love a good. Yeah. I thought you might Oh yeah. Because you know I watch monster inside me in fell. To See Something killing me the other. Okay. Yes. Everything every he reputational skull fracture and. and. I don't think. I'M NOT GONNA. I'M NOT GONNA say none of them are going to recover but I intend. I intend to boo these people. person out now I did fuck up because at the Twain Prize Yeah. You should said something like folk trump. There was a thing the next night at some restaurant. Yeah. If you can believe Dave had an event. Yeah. You on I was gone either yeah I just went. To, your. Leg but Kellyanne conway came in. And I wish. I. Wish I booed 'cause. It's like a hot restaurants she didn't come in for the party Oh. There's so many trump aids there at the night is just like. This is DC's weird. It's almost like corrupt politics. Corrupt. So corrupt, you can't believe. People would be like any. Couple about a dozen people have actual. Integrity, and now I don't care if it. If I get penalized for believing this I'm going to do the thing that's most politically tedious to me moment to moment. And that's you and I think we're talking about somebody was talking about how trump faked? Cope like he can't think more than eight seconds. In in front of him, I had to I'm just starting to realize that. E You know it works really well, at least where we live one trump supporters, they're idiots how could they believe these things queuing on? That's ridiculous and then you meet friends that are like he's faking it. With the fort up faking it think trayvon and run about friends do our friends marcus. Why are we losing touch with a good sensible connection to? Italy. Presumed real like of course, that's probably not the case like what it feels like that isn't going on in people anymore people don't have this thing in their head where they questioned 'cause they. Sign of intelligence. It's we talked about this. I'm realizing we talked about this last week. So. lost. In what it is and what's happened but people, we know that aren't that don't have void for being intellectuals or having something over somebody trayvon and Roy. Seem like sound dudes up brighter for the daily show and. Correspondent for the daily show. Yeah. What would make someone like them think that because they want to think that it's An even by the way, the Shit that people I posted the thing about us. Not Believing and they were like things that they. Propose more like M Kale Tra and which was like a CIA thing and Iran-contra. Those are good. Yeah. Those and I was like, these are good. But they people on the streets didn't know about them is my point it was never like you know. Someone so so and so and then you go oh yeah, you turns out you're right. It's just nothing's happening it goes. Cage is. Kale Yeah I'm K. Ultra and it turns out it's this thing that we were doing Yeah, I have so many. There's so much news that there was a thing you know when you go when they built. When they used to do like when they built the Brooklyn Bridge. People would get the Benz Yeah because also called case on disease. That's what I guess. The Guy who discovered his case on. Okay. But I have Cape K. Pods disease, which is you just heard the. It's twenty twenty. You're doing a podcast weekly podcast. There's so much happening that you don't. You don't even know what the Fox. Will doing good Wine Cape Pods YEAH BUT DONALD TRUMP IS Bad. Hand but he home he homes again to run against reality and every once in a row why reality breaks through? And I I love fighters like not doing to be with you. That's not exactly what happened. They just couldn't decide on virtual trump wouldn't do it virtually. No I mean in person because he literally said. He. Goes I'M NOT GONNA a not do it. Virtually I'm GonNa do it virtually when they can cut me off whenever they want. that. It's like, okay good. Also, virtually I think like saying feels more. cuck homosexual boards are saying. It's A. Rudy fruity it's safe. person a person is heterosexual. For virtual on camera on a little newfangled. Some about it's seems like it has a sex with other men. Will you explain the many Armenian genocide to point Oh so? It's basically so Turkey Armenia we understand that happened that was a while ago and nine hundred. Eight years ago. Two thousand like nineteen threes I'm. So In as a little bit after my grandmother was. Old I am go ahead. So. Long Eighteen, ninety seven. Yeah we talked about. You got capons. It's fine. And then so in it's basically Azerbaijan versus Armenia and Turkey is siding with Azerbaijan. Because of just I think historically culturally, they're just buds so in the North of Azerbaijani south I don't remember it. There's a lot of it's mostly ethnic Armenians that lived there and they're being persecuted and killed, and I think since you're just like tens of thousands of them have died someone said we're gonNA finish the job that I see that somewhere. ooh, that's rude I feel like I saw that finish the job who said that maybe I'm confusing with the Lakers oh no wait don't do that. Yeah right there. Right there. There should be by the way if you make an APP. Do with thing where it's a warning that there's it's behind a paywall go up to the top. They're trying to finish people are distraught. To finish the Job Eastern. Eastern Central Committee on the Marine Revolutionary Federation too long title. No Armenian. Yeah. They're trying to finish the job from nineteen o whatever yeah. No. So it's now it's Azerbaijan. Turkey versus. I can't you know I was reading. I've read a few articles the names so many Z. K.. Got Too many. It's hard to that's there's an old joke that somebody did in the eighties which is. Iran and Iraq are fighting so much because they keep getting each other's mail. Stupid. And I feel like this, it's also really fucking subtle. Let's settle. As a as a American I go Armenian Azerbaijan. How Different I. Guys. Really like member when Bush said that the one of the he was like he said it jokingly like. That Saddam Hussein tried to kill his dad. And everyone everyone's like. In that part of the country. That's. Grounds for war for two hundred years. But were just from the from the West. When he did its own thing. So one hundred and ten years ago. Right what are you? Why? Why are you? Who Remembers it? But they it's they want acknowledgement they. You Armenians have been fighting for the forever right and. There's still a lot of though. So I think Armenians in Turkey, that I, it's just a little border shed. It's a lot of. So it's Air To one proxy war in our Mya. Turkeys genocidal campaign. So they're battery Turkey, right? So it's as like it's Like a trump scandal, there's a layer of complexity that I'm like that makes me as a as a reader lose interest. Honestly. Right, come on guys air to one. If you attack him then I'm mad. But if you pay for Armenia, do it or Vuk ended as her by John the, only thing that I should version is how to say no the only thing I know about. Is from the Formula One show, they do Formula One event there, and I couldn't believe that they were they were big enough country they had buildings and shit. They're they've real skyscraper. They'd forty storey buildings I'm made of glass and steel not still now. So this congratulations I buy and I don't want to be totally controversial because it's not connected but. When? I was doing. The protests? Which ones? So I was in Pan Pacific Park which is where protests started. Accidentally. That goes from America to Japan. The Pan Pacific part go ahead. And that's where the protests wasn't. I got caught in it but I'm like, yeah, sure protests one hundred percent like I. Think it's fucked up how means treated? They're also all over there's a lot of our means Iran, but we're Nicer Armenians. What's wrong with west of the world so What I don't get is why a lot of immigrants communities in America are not pro them they're not pro black lives matter at all. At the Pan Pacific Park when I was there an Armenian guy asked me what what is be alumni MARV union was like Oh. What do you mean? What is? What does it stand for now is like? Black lives matter and he goes. I was like get away from me. And he's like black lives mud. hokey. NASA walked away. I was dating head of air on. My friend I was so fucking rude. But it wasn't route at all. He just did this and walk away. But you. But, you could feel the I used some old guys is like Yeah Sebastian Frank Ocean? It's a classic Frank Ocean's. Don't under good luck with all that you know. But. When you look at the Armenian genocide and the two point, Oh version. All it is is just unjust persecution against like a larger population with more power at least going against two more. Protected under. Under represented population and they're so passionate about it even before the thing and John which has only been going on for the last. Few decades. They've been there. They've still talked about like getting justice for genocide in the early nineteen, eight, hundred I don't understand why wouldn't you? Be Four all injustice. Oh, I'm sorry I will let me take this because people are giant hypocrites and only care about their issue and don't see any crossover don't even know what you're talking about Dave but this was This was Armenians being slaughtered. So yeah. But these are wiping being slaughtered for like four hundred year. Yeah. But these were Armenians for a couple years and that's Well. What were the Armenians wearing part of town Car were they drive and you know it's not fair to link this because I don't know how many Armenians think this I was just my one example in the same spot where there was the Armenian protests but. It. Felt I don't know I can't understand why all immigrant community they didn't leave their home country because it was great. No one wants to leave their home. So why I don't I just it's. Well they were being persecuted them leaving. Find, why if you were actually if you left. Lanes. She's marched over that people more like. Why is more visit more supported by immigrants? That bothers isn't it? Because they're fucking racist and they don't have black people in Armenia. True. They have like Nigerians or canyons there's always like. Trust. Do. Not Trust the. Nigerian. Nigerian guys come around. A Purple Genes, do. G. and they have a lot of gold I. Don't think it's real. Yeah they don't there. They'll find it. That's like in Japan like that in back in fucking Bangkok? It's just you go to Hong Kong's like. I don't know why there's Nigerians Kenya at these places. Kanye. West you know by Kanye West we spoken about him on the show is rapper on my ballot. He's a rapper is your Ivan over my belly he's a VP of. He's now I'm afraid that your ballot fucked up and now we're GONNA. This is GonNa be a I. Almost want to cut this out. Because if I don't think he's a VP's VP to a go some conservative guy. Yeah what? He's vice president to some fucking Roque. They'll up. That's the guy from from. From From rage against the machine. Dare you. Know it's only in California. Okay VP FUNNILY, enough neither one of them new they're going to run alongside each other in fact, Connie allegedly did not actually know or give consent. Oh that's cool.

First of all he sounds like he would be the yeezy creative director. Rocky Rock Rocky Della. Guerra. Get you got me fucking. spanish-speaking of fuckers glad. What white are. Their nicknames spike. Because it's a funnel. WHO'S JEREMY? Cowan. People. Showing. Out Jorgensen. George, this is Joe Jorgen Four. I don't He probably Connie released video today for his yeah play because I I don't. Know. What is America's destiny? What is best for? What is just it's the. Watch the throne flags behind together as a people. To contemplate future. To live up to our dream we must have vision we as a people he brought we'll revise A. Commitment to faith production to. The TO A. Political. The problem. Do. Faith can be restored. We as a people first of all, pause it to a great looks like Freddie Gibbs the rapper gives hey. I'm as reading, which is like that's. That's the guy that's pretty give. Him. Wait, he looks pretty good. It looks like Freddie gives them Michael Michael. Michael. Michael. Outfit.

Someone pointed out that that looks like it does serving. To what is he? He's basically saying we're going to we're going to be cheering America back. That we man, but he's also reading, which is like dog tags don't read with the shore memorize it. Or doing the right one ear classic ranch country the rant would get more traction. Does in fucking go. Ardoz go on Medication Fast People. Go. For a little bit and then and then. West. Maximum people. You should not. I'm Neal Brennan I don't have this message. Written in role right in. Should've had his own music. And should've just ranch should've gone off the dome. And I bet, Jaycees like why are using the watch the throne black and white flag. And And also don't run for president and be. Drop the yeezy gap. Wine. Me Shirts give me uniform level shirts. I know it reminds me remember those. Is a bad version of ENEMA Mormon those. The campaign on Youtube to. They were trying to give mormonism a better name. So they showed like black people were nice people. So Nice. I've never met a shooting Mormon. Even though they didn't allow black people until the eighties I said what I said. No. I'm saying he was seventy eight warn people whatever. Years after the rest of America, it's a few years after they they let. votes. Really learn ten years later have. Break. But Yeah, I'm a Mormon they were way more engaging videos that was an ironically the US Connie's music underneath. The more. So. Stop It. kind of your the greatest but please stop at least up to. Make clothes and music can maybe A. Remember. Making houses are we telling you? That's actually one of his houses in that space shot that was one of his Connie House. Space. that. He had homes people. fucking. Wherever plug is, are we doubting him to shut up Dhruva? kind of no, I already let them fucking make clothes. Like how many things are you? A any. Anything just. You can't. Be Bipolar. That's my only caveat untreated or yes. No untreated. I'd love for treaty. Treat about. Yeah like, yeah. That's it's not a dribble. He's he doesn't understand politics. He's just famous. That's that's his whole platform. So Yes, there have sorry there have to be qualifications for. For for. For Jobs. I'm sorry sir. Being. Rude and an. Divisive and reductive but you gotta you gotTa know how. To do a job you're trying to get. Now speaking of jobs or trying to I won't Columbus today's Columbus indigenous and. De. Why are we still reading Columbus? It's in Digital Ombu Day right. It's in digital. We should call for a decade just to ease people into it. I don't here's I have spoken about this on the on. Board winning. Past. Todd. Okay I don't. I'm for turning on everybody. But Columbus? Listen, to me. Okay, say. Somebody had to. Like we're and we're all getting somebody had a west some in order for this country to be. Somebody had to. Explore and find it whether you want to go with Amerigo Vespucci or whoever really did it or whatever somebody were all wearing fur coats going I was fucked up that that Columbus Rob that bank your fucking living in the country dude. So how you don't seem that upset that about this guy who who who stole land and then you enroll in response to him Sealand, you gave the victims casino. And a few reservations. I'm not saying I'm four Columbus Boxy now I'm just saying like you're against Columbus. For. Even the people. If native Americans are against them all day fucking all day but. People should any any Puerto Rican anybody who can hear Puerto Ricans if if native Americans want to get them. All Day like I said black people. All Day. Anyone who wasn't robbed or kidnapped to be in America needs to show shit because your living off of his. Crime. You're you're literally getting the getting the fucking. You're you're getting the feet you're getting at the big as they call it. So anyone who wasn't kidnapped. Or? Genocide. Anything to be in this country at least be thankful I. Don't know I'm not saying thankful saying, don't be how I see your hypocrisy well, how what if they agree that it's fucked up to? About well, just because you weren't enslaved or killed your. Slavery he'll doesn't mean you can't be. Like. Understand that it's fucked up I. Agree. But I'm saying. I don't think honored the Guy I'm just saying like I'm, GONNA fight for every one of those statutes. No I was saying like fisting knowledge what a fucking hypocrite. You're that you're doing exactly nothing to help native American or indigenous indigenous people and fighting for it to be renamed indigenous people as indigenous people are getting fucking. Renamed by CO VID and re fucking decimated by alcoholism and drug addiction and you don't like you don't like it consolation prize I don't like. The appearance. Of. I don't like surface things. That's the thing. I don't want the I want to get to the Nougat of justice and the negative justice is not. In digital cameras or Columba digits. Day It's. It's it's fucking. I mean it's impossible without a time machine because the reason native Americans have such bad drug and alcohol addiction is because have their answers US made it so There's no. No solution but. Calling. In indigenous peoples, day is as close to nothing as you can do and still not change anything. It's just like. You know what we're GONNA. Do we share? Hey, honey. Yet? No. We'll bring it to the reservation that you live on shitty where known solidify. Yes shitty basically a public park that you live in. This is your Parker. Getting like water and electricity. Your. So I went to a when I was at the Pan Pacific Park. Trying to. Fight a bunch of Armenians get to A. Frank Ocean I. I marched a little with them but going somewhere. There was a comedy show. And there was actually there was a funny. This guy had a funny bit. His name is Rob Hayes he's a comic black dude. He's funny and he was saying how he's like the confederacy was only around for five years. and. The MIGOS have been around for seven. I don't know why we don't have any when you put it like that. It's like. Oh that's why we really have only had the confederacy wasn't. Long Standing American. You know establish thing wasn't even a thing wasn't it wasn't a bang but. Like. The crips are a better. Way. Long. They were like were not this were that like? No, you're still this and we're going to kill until you say we're still that. Yeah. Until you say we're we are we are part of. Kids. True. It's not. It's not a real thing to get. It was just A. Move Out of their parents house by going on the roof. No fucking get back in your room. You still live in this house. It's IT'S A. It's a sovereign. rupees mind Yeah. So that's my thing with. Columbus. Now, speaking of which speaking of hypocrisy. Our friend Bill BURR got fake trouble. For his Sarah Lie Monologue in which he So bill walked about. White. Women in less than flattering terms by that he means. He said, did you hijack the woke moment? To, just like they hijacked the Metoo Movement, right? That's was hoping he'd say. Yes black men are being murdered indiscriminately but a comedian texted may ten years ago. I was hoping for that punch line didn't show up. Did I didn't know he didn't. I. Didn't pitch. Even. If you pitch Boura bit, it's guaranteed he'll never do it. He's like Gary Guarantee. Absolutely. They're not. Promise, he will not finding. Always constitutionally. No. You're. Yeah, I guess. So, he went after white women by saying it's basically the same point Dave made, which is white women getting. Upset and it's the thing about Columba's Dave's joke. Was You. You were an on the highest you don't like your. Year cut. You fucking. White women did just as much bad as black as as white men. They they win. It got home. They fucked up. Yeah. So they're the they just they turned and their the witness for the prosecution. Yes. Yes. So now they're like I didn't know I don't want to get a plea deal. Yeah. You're absolutely right. So A friend of the show who I think will come on this one of these weeks. Executive. Silent executive producers never even heard the show. Always says the in a slave uprising, the the first person they kills the wife. I think Oh yeah. I can't prove it I think he probably has two examples but like that's how it goes. It's like. So this thing of like I didn't lady you fuck in live in the big house. Would you think is yeah like bird did a version on his other special, which is like you're in the Jacuzzi with us right. So that's Halloway. They were just upset that. How dare he go? He's proving your point. We have problems soup not really. Not compared to everyone else. So let's you joke white women are coming in second place in a reason. In a five hundred person raised, they're mad they're in second like. This is. Leading. Yes really fucking. It's relatively not rigged for you but are you is it as fair to you as it is to white men? No but not by much it's not. Not. By much not when we talk about all the other riggings going on. Yes. Yes. In a white woman getting shoulder. Out of. By your husband. Tuned. Yes. have by your husband. By a guy, your brother, your bed, your husband whoever like it's. Stays in the FA and the white family, my point. So, but Berger got in trouble and there was a twitter twitter, cavill speed and twitter gravel your friend. I got into. I sent you. The one about didn't seem like a long thing. It was stupid I said Kellyanne Conway's daughter Oh fifteen. SHOULD HAVE A. Only fans for White House intelligence. In. Retrospect. She patriotic or now if I say patriot, it's not a joke. Okay. Well, what about is there a way? Trust me I did the calculation I'm a comedy writer I went through Oleg. They know I went through all of the possibilities and only fans is the funniest one. It's the newest one. It's the jokey wanted it's tick tock to instagram. If I'M GONNA make a joke, it'd be fucking Tiktok over here that's the job if I go. eight-year-old APP. Only fans and I did look up doesn't just point. So I knew I was covered right but are they have feet? Now I'd it truly was for? John's of like, Hey, everybody it's your boy did. A cameo monthly. Yes. And and try to all sexy. Then they tried. Yeah. They tried to fuck an attack me and the whole thing and the people like this is wrong and. How many how many people did you lose? Gained three hundred people? So the accurate. The fact, the idea that these people know about right and wrong comedy and then a comedy writer Dm me and he was on some like so you really can't sit mike you know you could if you wanted to turn this into because it actually apparently did turn into thing anthony thing that people don't realize it's what you can just mute these people they were like they were. On I think. Now. Your Bank. I know. He doesn't even eat pizza y'all y'all I don't I don't think Comet Pizza Has Vegan pizza although who knows? and. So. But I just muted. It meant people people like I don't see any of it. And and but people, it was just so embarrassing and. It's people lecturing me about what's good comedy and what's right and what's wrong and it's like you don't know what you are. It's exactly what I said last week, which is I'm an expert on this shit like you were here when. Steph called. About. Sketches and I don't know if you've hear the conversation. Someone who doesn't understand sketches wouldn't even know what we're talking about like. The level of this person that has actually really nice to hear two very. Prolific comrade people talk about particular sketches and even though I could totally keep up it was just nice to see Youtube talking about it. It was me inside Mars talking about sketches from live appraising the sketches and I mean like I didn't like the. Cool 'cause we can parse it out. It's the thing I said about. Carmelo Anthony, talk about basketball and on Jayjay relics podcasts you. You truly go. I don't know what I'm talking about I have no idea. Let's think you guys as an example. Nobody's writing anyone office. That was a bad sketch. It was like I didn't like that that part was good one. He did this one line that was very good this in work in X.. Y. Z. Bo also. People are really listening they hear one. Of them feel. I didn't like that, and then we wiped the whole thing clean bad. There's no value thing. Right? The difference between when people go that's not funny or that's wrong. The wrong. The wrong thing to write on twitter would have been. clottey whatever Claudia Conway is should have an only fans. That's the child pornography. Whatever on the same tweet just without. which is for White House Intel. So I know what the gross illegal version is. I have no interest in doing it because I don't believe it and it's gross and not funny in the exploitive and all this shit. Okay. But as a comedy person, you know as a writer and and stand up, you know that. You know sometimes you know better than the audience and you know that some jokes even those a good joke and I know this about you if it doesn't work two or three times, you know fucking because land. So. Doesn't mean it's not a great joke. But if you hear a daughter does underage only fans and people making association and don't like it. What's the difference between you saying that at the store and no one laughing you're not gonNA. Do it again maybe we'll do one more time. I'm not going to tweet that again either no but then what? I wanted and work why the coach Because it did work. There were twenty comedy writers that liked it. Yeah. There were two thousand retweets there was yeah. There were two thousand retweets there was like it had big numbers cardboard lot of comments a lot of re tweets lot of likes. You didn't like it but they think if they don't like it, it's not funny. Or it's wrong and it's like you're saying it has to be some sort of justice. You're saying that you're basically I'm a cook or a chef and you're saying not only do I not like this dish it is food poisoning. And I'm telling you it's not food poisoning. It's too spicy for you not to your palace, but you're not you don't know what your, and that's what the fight became about that for me which is you don't know what you're talking about people hate when you say that people think it's arrogant and I've been accommodated for twenty five I know a bunch of shit about it. Yeah. And I understand the levers and even now I feel immodest. I I'll be modest unless someone goes you don't. Fuck you don't know what the fuck you're talking about I I had a living. Metaphor come to life, which was I was it was ice cream day last week. And I'm in line and people behind me were saying self about ice cream. That was so dumb. Wow Neil somebody I didn't. Someone who point goes vanilla is awesome. That's how do the dumb. Just first of all. That's not vanilla is awesome. No, it isn't. It's the building block of ice cream civilization with vanilla we had nothing. Okay and you can I way rather plain vanilla. That's my but that's my palate years not food poisoning it's a disagreement. But they were so basic and dumb that I just thought. Well, this is the people I'm arguing with. On twitter and they're just they're just they just got low IQ's. So why am I wasting my time? The only thing I did waste my time on is saying like no I'm an astronaut and you're telling me about space and you don't know what you're talking about but people resent it's so much that you say, no, I'm an expert on a thing that you think you're but you're not. Then is when you when you think about it isn't. Comedy truly subjective. No, you think there are these. Just like found. The same top twenty. COMEDIANS. It's like it's subjective in the, but you're not gonNa tell me. that it's like everybody's got fucking. Prior Dave Chris Joan Rivers Long Time. Do you make a bad joke? See. You don't don't think. I ever have. No. I'll accept a bad job is just. GonNa go through. I know a bad joke I know like the where the where the weight of like. I now with bad joke is like that wasn't a bad joke. There's jokes that I've made that are just like. But they're not. Immoral. You know what I mean. It's like that joke I made on here about the gymnastics girls. Being, it'd be like Michael Jordan once exchange. Phil Jackson stuck his finger was but. Did anybody have no Because I asked Michaela Maroney about it beforehand. But it was a dud I tried it on stage four times but. Yeah, you know what it needs more explanation because when you explain to me more I'm like Oh. Yeah I know but. It's also because we don't. That doesn't work because at least for an audience member because we don't think of. We don't think of how hard. It doesn't work because we can't even fathom how fucked up it is that they won championships and we're getting molested. I mean I had the Shindand he will. Like the the level of comedy. I one time pitched joke to Chris. Chris Rock and it goes three too many words. Like you don't know like you just don't no. One can do that. Nobody can do that. But there are certain people like just the level of understanding like very high level of understanding. So when people start delving. Buddy and then somebody else said like Oh so you're saying. You're saying that comedians are on the same plane as rocket scientist and I wrote somebody go no. No there's way more rocket scientists than great comedians. There's like thousands of rocket scientists in the world is probably. Thirty thousand rocket scientists I don't even know what that means, but probably thirty thousand in the world. Again the thing that people don't think about. One hundred forty great comedians, there's thirty thousand. That's what I'm saying like fuck you. I nobody. But isn't who had that joke? Hey, quoting not knowing but there say they were talking about how on Youtube Beethoven. Yours. Island. Fighting this by the way, it's the clip in which we should get to the comedy cer- documentary where I said I play this game online. That's we'll get. Doc such. Very funny. The comedy stir documentary. Did you watch? You know when it's a police you've worked up. And it's it's like Schlep work. I'm not there Philip my dreams. I'm not. How good you are headed go ahead and Very. Good at. I'll never signed any. Anything to say like you could fill me I. I don't know I know there's some like waitress. Good. Will you do there are some waitress wait a moments in the back and they always had a camera. and. Just like fuck off like I don't want to be in this thing. That would be the biggest thing I've ever done is via background. May, know her. Specialist. How'd you like? I. I liked by. Mike binder the director was sent has been involving me. In the edit a little bit. Bijon edited an episode. So I was I've got to yell at binder. Every few weeks. was of great. Perfect. For me So we got the L. Binder and so I but I've watched I probably watched it four times this week I just like wait how many of us. There's only one this week I wanted to say one there's two now now as of last night. Yeah. Okay. But I watch. I watch the same. Why? Because I light If I like something I, like it. So. You might get. Yeah I. Like it a lot I think it's great but it also like came along it like I was able to not like it was me who did it but I'm saying like. I was able to say, Hey. You need to show Hump Big, Jimmy Walker was, and then he he did something that he would like address something I said. So it's I have to watch it multiple times as a show of gratitude. As show respect like no, I that was my a not even in a just like I I that's not why like it I like it because i. I like the world. I still don't think in a weird way. That it captures culturally how I. The clip used me was me saying there's not a building America that's had a bigger. Impact, on culture. which you go mets couldn't be true and then you think about it go name building. Yeah. Build a building and I'm not talking about like the White House or Congress whatever I'm talking about a pump coach a building it's thirty rock is the only one that you could say just because. SNL. Fallon. The first Rosie, o'donald talk show their huge. You could say that. But? It's also way weird thing and it's almost too big to cover. It's a it's a one room. Two rooms. Where Richard Pryor. And Anthony Nick both. Blossomed or worse Richard Pryor and Sebastian or Richard Pryor and Joe Rogan Richard Pryor Analyzer Whitney. Yes. That's Nev. it's not like the troubadours like that troubadour had one kind of music. Prior. Is basically like hip hop. Or if you include Iraq or dave or whomever else like the if you just go, they do hip hop com or Def comedy jam that was like the center of Def Comedy Jam. Like I went there when I saw to pock there. Yeah. So everybody's dogs old wages of to park. Resent great tipper. Yeah. Like he was there a lot. Yeah. So that's the part that you Kinda can't. It's not like Oh, it's like the Lakers not. Just shoot room. Yes and what's three but right but belly I don't count the Bachelor they're not doing real sheets brings up there I know what I'm saying it's two rooms. That And the room has an influence on. Had An influence on prior and Jim Carrey and Jay Leno and David Letterman. And will be developed her show in the belly room. Yeah. By now one woman show. Which I didn't know that. Wow that's cool. Yeah. Like were you like Whoa and she's Whoopie says. There's a thing that ties us all. She's like people around the world that are regulars that did time at the store and to the earlier point about rockets. Four three, hundred, fifty, pay regulars. which when you think like that. Hundred probably dead. Okay five hundred. Let's say, yes, not a lot Oh. Yeah. The with the when you see the photos on the wall Mike Lot of broken dreams. We're not gonNA focus on that Oh so They're all. Martin. But no, it's true. There's not that many. Yes there. So it's a it's it's rarified. It's whatever you WanNa talk about, but it's also. So prior develops live on the sunset strip there or live in concert there. And letterman develops how to how to be a host. and. Robin develops his voice whoopie developed her voice. And then and then now, and then also now so there's not there's not a music venue that had. Otis, redding and five. There's like developed developed. These. Are Not famous people and it's almost too big a concept. To cover. Yeah says I tried to like bind her use me talking about. And it's still I still didn't later on I was like fuck I should've should've mentioned this person right in living color I should've mentioned. Martin Lawrence. Ma that was Martin homequote. But I'm saying he got his. HBO Half Hour Deal. At the store. They would say I when mid-sixties Doing Matisse funeral was really interesting to hear all these people come up and talk. They're like you could kill the main room on a Friday you'd be on. Johnny Carson. That's the that they cover that cover. We that get Carson but that's one show in one period. That's like, yeah. Okay. I'm talking about the lengths of it and That's like the key. It's not even creepy pindling big concept for. Its like where they say one person story and ten thousand people a statistic. That's almost the IT in terms of like how they sold the famine in Ethiopia that was like the observation like we can't just show everybody we just have. One? Starving. Child. At. The store. There so many people that. Like. You can't. Be. Too. It's so crazy. Yeah it's one time we were talking to somebody and they're like Oh. Yeah. Like one of the old old wages. Maybe eleanor she was like Jim. Carrey. was just a door guy and he married a waitress. And I. Looked at all the doors and we now I know God but it wasn't anything. There wasn't some extra magic behind. It was the same thing we're doing the same. It's the dynamic at the store. The Nice thing is it feels like it has not changed that tons of comic sitting around. It's really the one place I love and it feels so old school where you really just have conversations everyone has that's how you pass the time. Yeah. Of course, people do fifteen twenty minutes whatever and we're schlepping drinks and people have actual jobs but everybody everybody whether you're working or you're just there to should the shit hanging out so you you could maybe become a door gates. Everyone's just sitting and having conversations and that. Like type of symposium. It's so encouraged they're that exchanging of of just. I duNno, it's not. You don't really see that anywhere else. There's also the thing that is very hard to cover new documentary. They actually, Milwaukee talks about it. So Jimmy Walker needed writers he just. He just probably he's good job there. So he and his writers at one point were. Letterman Leno. And Byron on Oh. Okay. So that's. Five hundred, million, five, hundred, million and a billion dollars you literally and I was saying binder. Dude, he owns the weather channel. Now, he did stand up once. At Seventeen Got A job and now. So. It's not it's the letter the analogy it's like Tripoli baseball and then if you and it's like, that's not quite at either because. Those guys letterman had Tom Driesen George Miller and Jimmy Walker on a show like twice a year. When he had like in the two thousand. Like when they weren't holiday at all, no one else wanted him. He was like the thing that I. It's very hard to cover, which is the friendship, which is Jimmy Walker hiring these guys and he they cut to a clip of him saying I'm at the job getting. Plateau of my career where I can get people jobs. And The difficult. The tension that develops there. because. Letterman used to get Leno jobs on Letterman. He would have Leno. On the show all the time. With. Let Him Buck in not let them murder. He fucking. It was a launching pad to then. Get the tonight show and that's the shit. That's really That's like to me the tension of. A place like this because it's like AAA baseball except that the guy that you play with. Can become the head of the League into years right. So it's and it's not even a calculation I don't think but into it is really emotional. It's really emotional and everyone is so in the same industry and it's such a small industry that like you don't know who's GonNa be it is really cliquey to I'm surprised it isn't more. There isn't more understanding of I feel like comics are generally cool with each other but behind the scenes tag lot shit Yeah, you just have to accept that I mean it's not in the dock but. It was in the book I'm dying up here and I actually did a part of the dock with one where I interview WanNa. and. So, there's a portion of a show where of the dock where they're watching people on the tonight show like everyone would watch everybody, right? Yeah. That's what I'm talking about like sweet thing and Leno. Had A had one of the first VCR's that he said was like the size of a microwave. pull the plug and he would go hey, you wanna go on someone's Obama. Like there that part of it, where it is very support days as fucking cut throat or anything it's just naturally the only thing I want to see someone do more hill fucking bomb. It's fucking the fun part like I know all the Shit people are going to talk about it all the clicks not and it's like I know what they're going to say you have at it, knock yourself out. But the emotional. The maybe the thing that I'm not gonNA are too big for documentary. Yeah. No, it's hard to really Catholic, for example, when Johnny weatherspoon died. Jd like Johnny. Let joplin letter. John but lettering in and those guys call him Johnny and everyone called Prior Ritchie. Yeah and it's like this. This just this friendship. It's hard to capture how sweet and US deep running this friendship goes these friendship go. But at the same time summer like obsolete just like dead like, yeah. I used to know him. So it's you know where people lie you know some can have these friendships that are long lasting, and then some could make big and just like shandling. Another guy that's just like I can't believe Yeah Base I free. He's just hasn't been in it yet is he's going to be though right I think so I can't remember I'm assuming these guys it's again it's not like the blue note it's not the because they can help you help you help the person below you because you don't think they're below you. There, you're. You're you're a nine, fifteen, nine, thirty. In. Show bizz may go you know so-and-so's way beyond union like you you don't know what you're talking about it. So you think so and so's better than me but they're not an al it's like David with me. It's like people go like pot and he's like, no, I'm telling you. Well, that's the thing. The Nice thing I think about comics. In comedy in the at least the vibe at comedy clubs is a comic will see someone be really fucking talented and we like he's it it's not like acting where I'm the one booking. It doesn't really matter that you're better actor than me go to a fuck in. Acting School, and be the man. It doesn't matter. I'm booking I have something some genetic. Wa, that I'm booking above you and I'm I'm more successful by those. Criteria whereas a comic if they see someone. Funny. Funny them forever, and they are always betting one you're gonNA pop. That's the funny thing about the DOC is that is the amount of remember the joke used to do. Michael Keaton, by the rich people in was a comic. I know the I knew that I always forget he has Michael Hayden has a Bazooka Joe Joke. That is so fucking great dot. No. Oh. Cool. The SAGA sets it up. And? It's so great. You can't by the way, there might be a clip of this podcast in a later episode just say so I hope you did sign something. But saggy pants up. Keaton. Keaton Remembers binders, jokes, and Bina remembers Letterman's jokes, and that's the thing of like were all kind of. Like leaves in the hall of the ship, and then we're like Oh that guy was a good rower and then he goes, Hey, I'm come up to the next deck and then you're in the deck and a Lotta Times them vouching for you yeah, which is I don't know if it's Hard to I didn't even think about until I was watching the fourth time. But what what is the thing? That's hard to what? It's hard to capture that hard to capture. It's really hard to capture. It's hard to capture because I. Think binder probably felt like the Letterman Leno thing was so done to death. Yeah. They did they concentrate on the drama of no they didn't even go over the talk. ARE THEY COOL I, don't know I. Don't doesn't matter I think at this point they're. Probably. It's not like a Cold War just nothing. Yeah. I don't think they talk but I don't think. I didn't know that they were such good friends I didn't know they were. Bindings does cutting back and forth from. Letterman saying like. I, don't. Think I ever saw Jay Black. To Leno go like ice and watch letter it'd be like you're are so fucking good and it's really sweet their shit like that. It's really really nice. But. Yet there is something nice about in the comedy world where you just as long as you give credit or be like, fuck who said this put? I, love the. Quoting we do it sometimes on, but like at five times episode. But I just like that part of it just feels like such camaraderie yet the. Camaraderie that you can't you can't really is partially it's like you're you're both in A. Beauty pageant, but you're also both rowing. In a slave ship. So it's like it's it's a bunch of different things you do. Appreciate its but at the same time. It's a little competition it's never direct. There's never eaten on test it's never direct, but there is competition. H is on this really specific level because I've been around actors who it's so blatant in Weird Times. And writers are pretty cool. They don't seem competitive with anyone like Hopefully Ping. Yeah. Whereas comedians have captured the writing spirit pretty Niger. I went to a call I wouldn't do. One slice of Pussy please. What's that joke? The GIRL COMES Okay. So Neil Star Seal of approval. Yeah. It's great. Watch. It's Showtime Hulu whatever we're. Life on our planet is that a nature doc yet it's written. Right well, there's a whole. KIEF MIGHT PARKSON warned thank you. There's a whole thing with With. How the name how we're fucking So. Mad. I don't care about they'll just this is a this is an omnibus. Big It's Richard David attenborough member, David, attenborough. His life. As a nature person and what he seen he's like like the first time he went to. Myanmar wasn't Myanmar, but it was Burma Yeah Burma it. Might not have been Burma, but it might have been Berman. Very different things. The literally the same country you don't understand. From the way he went. When he went how much forest there was versus how much is now just percentage also the earth what it was in. Fifty five what it is now in terms of overall forest land of with to be sixty three percent now it's like low forties which sounds like it's it's not good. That was great. Yeah. The life on the planet was great. It's on Netflix and they're a dock that I watched on Amazon called feels good man which is based on the guy who drew pepe the frog how how just got? Yeah. The comic that it was based on pepe the frog was part of. A comic book called I think Boys Club. And The title feels good. Man is was just from a strip. Panel, of Boys Club where guys. Taken a league, but he's got his pants all the way down as butts out and he's got someone goes up with your pants. Goes feels good man. So funny. And A and and so it's cool that the guy basically got it became like a right wing thing. He sued Alex Jones made two million dollars. And then protesters and I won't give it away but it's fun. It's good documentary. That there is one that I want to watch I. Think it's out on Sunday. Have you heard about it's cold time. The yes. I try to look for no. It's not on the eighteenth and it's about it kind of just shows the impact of like incarceration black people, but it's over like twenty years. Something yes. So it's it's basically seven up for blind people in prison. Sixty Year prison sins. At anyways that's coming out and I heard that one's really good. So I'm sure. Yeah I heard too and then there's two trump wants coming out. There's one about Kovic that Alex Gibney directed that's been ongoing apparently like in secret. And then there's another one called. Maybe. Under controllers remember what does he the one about? Somebody befriends an octopus I started it, but I didn't finish. That one. Yes. Thank you for bringing that up my octopus teacher activists who couldn't stand the guy why and I love the octopus. Please the guy is. Unbearable weight he's like if a guy from nexium. Was Dj. Take off your clothes. He sounds like Mark Ronson. That's Mark Ronson talks. Know really exactly like mark, Ronson? Yes. Enough. Wa. Thank you. How much do you want to show? Well, you got wills invested will produce. It's like a guy from nexium gotta DJ. Activists of course about him a lot. Of Court and I stopped watching it because the guy made me crazy and then someone dm me instead and confirmed exactly what I thought. It was going to be he became a better father as a result I was like I. Own shoehorn this fucking son in at the beginning he's I lived by the ocean. Also I have a son and then just cut to him, and it's like might see where this That's why I the thing I like about documentaries I don't know what's going to happen they were. So you know that I figured it out. Hey it's me Neil from. Eight seconds ago. There is if so we vote right and voting isn't just going to the polls anymore. On Election Day options like early voting mail in voting and ballot drop boxes are available to more voters and are growing in popularity. There's a platform called how to vote. It's tool created by democracy works breaking down the options. Your state offers for casting a ballot, empowering you to decide when and where to vote. So basically it gives you all the information where you need to go what your options are where to go. You don't have to put him party affiliation any of that stuff. It'll just make it way easier So you gotta go to how to dot vote. That's it. How to dot vote is the website and Go there, and you can register your put your email in, and then they'll they'll.

Communist style. I'm speaking. I'm Mr Vice President is Vice President I'm speaking and then she tried to. Double Down like lady you know what that is. That's like when you're here people, they WANNA record their significant other in a fight. They don't want them to announce fun and it's like wanted to sound like I'm trying to bed. Stop It. Why are you doing that? Don't turn your back on like a bad radio. Why are you putting your socks on doing thing that people wouldn't be able to hear until I it it. Was it was. The thing. I had a better line for them which is. MISTRIAL MR prints you've you've been speaking with your accents for four years. Now let's let someone else be again. fucking the few. Did it. You did it you. Tried to speak. We saw well, we saw what you wanted to say and it was bad but lesbian is there are so. Open season for. Things getting not. Joke. They aren't taking they aren't even going for the like. I know we'll. PITHY and worthwhile. Have said that for sure. To some people don't really. I don't think it's going to be now I think we're done with the debates and I had another line I can't I have to marshmallow test it. that. Mr. Trump. Thinks he built the economy. When, in truth like most things in his life he inherited Think. She's did something similar. Not, that Pithy, she didn't and you said someone should say everything he touches he destroys. She said that they've said that that there's a there's a, there's a website called. Goodbye. That's like spell. Brung. Because you get it might toss you've got. All Right L. S. C. N. E. R. Thank you for all you do and say, I, hope you can help me with this burning query. I have beloved female friend that I'm super close to talk weekly travel together all the things however, she can sometimes be a real brat. It's always her way or the highway, our friends and I are constantly compromising the gander just to avoid an argument, for example, constantly going vegetarian restaurants. So we'll have enough choices despite a gang of omnivores. What a bitch? Her behaviors grown so spoiled over the last couple of years that I decided to have come to Jesus moment with her. To address my this was roughly in March of this year. But before I had my opportunity twenty twenty hit the fan. I quickly turned into purdy much fulltime protester and she and I found common ground in our passion for supporting the cause. I let it go as I. Let it go as there are bigger pieces of shit fry the moment. Unfortunately, her narcissism seeped into this to into activism you're kidding. She is constantly asking me to take her side against our white friends. She's mix Rafe. Most of whom she's alienated because they've not shown enough outrage of a race inequality on the suit on social media. She regularly refers to it as her movement. The last Straw. was when I invited her to be L. M. March I was really excited about, but she wanted to get drinks instead then accused me of not supporting black women because I wanted to use my extremely limited personal time to support the cause instead of doing something quote fun with. My question for you guys is this is Brandt weaponising her selfishness with their black blackness as of white it's not my place to make any assumptions about a POC experience. However, it feels like the moment the movement is being used as a tool manipulation here. On Yes. Is Poe impossible to tackle this with her without inspiring racial hostility it is impossible. You're not going to win this. Seems, impossible. She seems like she's using it for her gain. Which? She seems. Up Yeah, that's the trap of all these things is making it so that you're not. Making about you, but the thing about human life is. There's one camera angle and it's our point of view and we see everything from I'm the star of every scene and you think you're the star. Wealth thinks he's I've ever seen. So of course we think. Yeah. I. I don't know this person just seems like an asshole but that it's hard when. It's hard to deal with black assholes, right Black Hills are winning yet noble. They're there. It's hard to deal blackouts right now because you can't tell them their and and that's what I'm saying we're. The we're letting them be brought. Yes. In the name of well haven't we brought for. Years. So that's fine. I think the problem is though. Yet she's using a lot of weird. Like I'm Vegetarian Union blaze Limo. So although the thing is when you have a letter like this. Feels extremely one sided and I never believe. Like. I have a friend that. You better believe us. That whenever he says are uses girlfriend. She's always. I mean, it couldn't be more rigged against terms of like and. then. So it's hard for you. This counting this lady let's just count it a little bit like it's still awful. You know also it's still not awful. It's just like tell her. I mean, what can she tell her I? Think don't make it about any of this. Just say you know I just feel like. I like to do a turnaround like blame myself. You know what I just feel like you're displeased with me I feel like I'm not being supportive friend. You're upset I was in supporting black women I. You know we don't compromise enough and I just you know just do you WanNa continue the friendship I mean I don't WanNa just be. Forever in the Doghouse Bro, I don't know just throw it on yourself because then what is she going to do? Few, hit her. She's GonNa fuck income by the way. This is a metaphor for the entire woke moment where you can't. There's no right. That's right. Enough. There's no you can't be woken up for this woman. You can't be vegetarian announced something going you can't be. She says, burden you're already at from jump. You're already you're gonNA lose just a matter by how many yeah. And it's not goodbye some fun you. Got Mail Hello Neil. I've been a fan of yours since I saw you in the daily show. Lighten up creep. To be honest I really didn't know how I didn't know much about you had no idea by love Chanel show something something something something. Three my expert. Nice number one when you get this is bad about you. Sorry. There's in a row that tough. Get, your get your your suit of armor. On I have to upstairs. I've been a fan number one when you get your Irish passport and they'll come on over there loads of racist xenophobe alive and well being in the republic versus the northern Dick. Ed's We hate broadly equally. To, you may not like this the story from Bianca didn't post anyone in a good light. Ireland is full of bitchy women as the rest of the world who feels great after spending six to seven hours flying from the USA Dublin from the sound of it Bianca was just. Being. A jeep was being as much of a g bag. There's a asterisk and then it says, Ju- bag is not a compliment as the other passenger. To call her a racist is this shit move in Ireland or anywhere outside of the US or UK that's not warranted or acceptable just my opinion. Now let me handle this bum for you. Thank you. Neil when you get your Irish passport come on over there loads of racist xenophobia alive and well. So and then he says like Hey. Don't be don't call people racist. That's my job in the in three sentences ago and he also there's obviously a rivalry with the Republicans to the north of Shits on them northern Dick. Heads Hey Gavin his name's Gavin Very Irish. Govern. The G. Back only take your G bag. Reut. Accent so you can understand it. You don't Russell. Of Gould given. First of all Gavin have several seats because this wasn't like I didn't say didn't WanNa. Say The story because I knew I was like this is not a great I like the story that's is fine I think it was funny it's whatever I can laugh about it. But. The idea that says to call her a races is a ship move in Ireland or anywhere else outside the US or UK. Common over there's a loads of racists. He used it as a selling point. That hey shit. There's no race in Ireland go short all it was was a lady being. Addicted she was being racist and then I was being as you ought to serve. Okay. We can being the friend from the letter before that's fine. Using race for your own means. That's. What happened was he volleyed her business moldy right back and then we just kept it in the bitchy world and then she wants to make it very weirdly. We didn't speak for like six seconds or maybe ten to walk, and then when we got to this saying goodbye flight attendants, that's when she's like, can you believe she did this in our country you don't behave like this an our country. That's when it was like well, maybe you're not being racist, but you're being some sort of something something. That's like, why do we need to talk about your country my behavior in your country she said, she called me a bitch. You don't behave like his country when that lady called me a bitch I so it was like. If you WANNA be petty like I to just came off of a seven hour flight so we can be really. Saying, Hey, we've nobody was in a good mood but also the thing is if this was, you know the villains of the world are. White women from the US. So let's just plug in a white women in from us and a Nice Irish exchange students hold on. So many wrote a letter about this. Okay. Of. Question would you agree that the middle aged white woman is the most hated figure in our culture? As you do. Why do you think it is? I just think it's right now. Because it's it's hot because we don't. We haven't really like we said, we address it earlier white women have kind of gotten a bit of like a soccer mom there soccer mommy's there mossbacher. Mommy's so sweet and they've been actually protected and have given the benefit of the doubt of being nice kind. Not Thieves not anything that no one else has gone. So I think now it's just It's just the penalty out of themselves by voting for trump. In those numbers in the I mean it wasn't it was fifty five percent but that's like, Oh, you just told yourself. So the pendulum is going to. And now it's like I. Don't know. If. It was eighty white woman from Florida middle-age right wing from Florida saying to a Irish exchange student. You don't behave like that in my country. No one would be like she was probably tired. You know we're going to be like what races, Karen. So it's like he said he blue sky blue zone cover by opening with like we're racist here. I don't really care who agrees or disagrees date Giovanni always digits by. Gavin with G. Back. The. Love of my life Bianca. Comments. I'm not GonNa comment you guys while. You kneel although I do want to say you should be getting. what I've been listening to episode three last week listening to my bb. Tell that story of that hateful lady on the plane maybe understand why her I love her so much. I often think to myself how is someone that gorgeous and funny and well traveled and not married so I just WanNa take a wild stab at. Queen. Bees last relationships. They start off. Great like wildly in love. That's where he's wrong. So it's going great and every day he asked how your day was and you're telling him all the stories of how people are routes you and he has always on your side at first because bet the WOP is great and I would always be on your side to love But one night you don't give him any wop any is thinking clearly any is like I. Love You but I think you're wrong and you fucking lost it. I gathered this because I felt your wrath and you're telling that story about the hate-filled woman on the plane the way you snapped when that lady who was probably just trying to grow your back. So away you snapped is only In a few special people. You're a special snapper. You got that special snapper. I would I would about my penis for a year to be dating and walking behind you while you're berating some scared white lady with tons of racist Jesse could be like Yemen. I'M NOT GONNA stop that lady gets to go home tonight. I don't want that smoking. I don't know what he lost change. Pov's. So if you can take me on a quick stroll down the last couple relationships and what were the biggest fights I would appreciate a queen. Bee, I guess you can say. Okay for of all I love all these. Why explaining for this woman I'm like it was not cool. I'm not I. Agree wasn't cool I I don't think it's the most agreed thing ever I felt like gloves are off. Let's just all be you want to be. Petty. Many I don't think this is a story that you know. Don't tell it at my eulogy like. No Neil don't this isn't like watch me be cool in soccer to a white woman I. Think we both looked ridiculous conflict ridiculous at the beginning I would reduce the end but at one point you just I don't. I think once called a racist chasing her down the hallway and calling it wasn't a chase. Talking it was a fast. Walk to okay. Wasn't the it wasn't a passport no I just kept I said it quietly it was like your race she was like Nathan. And I'm like me racist I, it was like a Jerry Seinfield like I never raised my voice that doesn't matter the point is. I'm sure you guys a story. You know bad light share bad light story not defending it. It was. and. If you're going to other me and make me feel like you fucking foreigner. Like now then and not after you spread you but she's on me second of all. This is so funny. This is nothing like my religion, but I date traditionally I guess maybe isn't cooler. PC. Anymore. But I tend to date I tend to be more of a guy in the relationship not strength or fucking but Frank Ocean. Guy. No like. Data problems and I'm the straight. Man. Mike. And don't get me wrong I do complain when people route to me. And I'm sure they're like okay. Whatever that kind of goes with the territory, but a lot of it is. I don't like putting myself on people or my problems onto people's I'd rather just I'm not comfortable doing that. So I'd rather you tell me I like to pivot questions about me become questions about you and people are very full of themselves and not no shade. But just in general who doesn't want someone asks them a question. So it's a very easy thing to avoid. Muslims you don't tell me your last name for a while right five or six dates. Last name age it takes me if you live. We'll meet there. I just have a weird I. Don't know I think it goes down to just how I was when I was a kid but I just don't like pudding any of my burdens on me I doesn't mean I don't do it. I just don't want to actively do it and I don't think people know when Shit about you. Yeah my friend. Always you're beyond a private like. Not. Just like no your fiance probably it's all the weird what? What is it a reference to like? You don't know I'm doing something you don't know beyond beyond. Until billboard. That's what's going I just was really shy growing up extremely parents autistic. So Your your friends still does. So, then. So I think it. anyways. That's that's what. He was role. Also I want to give up your penis for a year. Just, because I got to go let's There's a couple. This is a good one. Is a good one. CR Neilan. Banks LSD NPR. Look marriage has problems but neil. Admit the most of your married friends are famous married guys not normal people true. Famous Mary guys even ugly ones have women throwing themselves at them all the time. So when they get home and they want their wives, the they want their wives to not only fuck them make them feel like they aren't missing out. Anything. It's the Lao. It's so loud. It's crazy. I remember when he first started I was like I I, don't know what to do about that. Quiet I know. Till it's too late. So when they get home, they want their wives to not only fuck them. But makes them feel like they aren't missing out on anything. Good Point. That's impossible. There they are one hundred percent missing out on things. There is nobody John on the planet that could take away that foam and the desire for other China's especially easily attainable vaginas that are waiting for them after the show or sliding into their DM's Neil, can you admit that your assessment of men in marriage is unfairly biased by the fact that most men you know have more options than the average guy banks. Thank you for defending the ladies grab that spatula until like this, she would Brad spatula guys but she was so openly hateful toward it that I threw it in the. Tunnel my own is suggested a bowl will get you some. Okay. We'll get your manscaping raise. You'll see. WILL WILL CHRISTENED IT? So. K. Neil here. That is true but. I want this guy to admit that ninety percent of the people you know should not be married. And the sex thing has nothing to do with options it has to do it does options makes it worse but? I don't think that my famous friends. Who have dog walkers. Satiric. Understand. The my famous friends If their wives. You can't shoot an empty gun. So if their wives empty the chamber before they left the House. You got no problems during a sex addict land, which is the whole thing and I don't I only know. A few sex addicts and They would be cheating on anyone. Yeah. I mean I don't get it and he wants to admit the the difference between regular guys and famous guys is the amount of sex they have access to, which is true. I've turned down four pieces of sex since the beginning of this from I can I'm cases pieces? Of Sex sex pace. And So I don't. I just think it's a bad institution and it should be. Put in the dustbin. Of History with totalitarianism fascism and and mormonism. Well Yeah. Even like that other guy said, why how are you not married? We'll what year is this yeah. That's the sign of a valuable woman. Is. Not. Didn't he for you? it's embarrassing. So I don't think you're right in that but these guys aren't. These guys are not sleeping with their wives and then sleeping with somebody else. What happens is their wives stop sleeping them because that's what happens in every marriage what if they take them for granted and their wife is nice and once I know plenty of dudes that. No I don't know plenty I know some situations where the girl really wants to fuck in the guys like okay as you later. Lights off. Don Draper. Because there is an element of when you don't have sex enough. And you're relying on one person to give it to you. You get so dismayed that by the time they're like I want it now to you're like fuck out of here like I got now and now you want I want it all the time. So, now, I have to make a big fucking. GIANT SCISSORS OPENING Giants. There's an giant ribbons because yeah, because you want Oh. Thank God the fucking. She's here everyone. We've. I know it's that's why men and women should not get married because we have entirely different ethos as when it comes to sex me. Even though I you know here's the thing. I always say I don't want marriage would love a wedding and I love address I now pantsuit. But I just the I just feels very archaic for the woman I mean, it's essentially your product being sold. That's like the origins of marriage and now the Cherry on top is that we get to choose address thinks well, I thought of a joke that I haven't done yet, which is when I was playing tennis I saw woman in one of those tennis. And I just had the thought women. Women's a lot of women's lives are about unlocking outfits so like. I'll go sailing and then you picture yourself a little sailing outfit and you're trying to get on like wedding dress unlocked but. Yes. That's the top level is wedding dress unlocked and men are trying to get you out of close. That's. That's good. That's a comedy comedy. He's A. Science yes. You could not do that. Now Hilla listener you're going I could you could not have done it because I'm the one twenty and I. It on Saturday he knows about art now. Narrative. So you that is correct So So it's it's silly and it is archaic and and I also a joke that I haven't done yet which is. You don't marriages are not a licensed to be wetted they're licensed to fuck. In the eyes of God. Yeah. They're Lice Act fucking license from God like okay. You can now fuck. That's that's all the changes imagine if you had to marry the first person you fucked. Yeah, that's most like how your parents that's definitely my parents. Yeah. Yeah. Until I mean you start. To think about the I it's like God. Damn. Yeah. No. Yeah. No No. No it's grown Okay. So what can we just play a game? If you had to design marriage, redesign it it, you had to be you and a one person. Design it what what could you would? It wouldn't be it would be A. Supreme Court appointment wouldn't be for life. It should be two years tops and then you renew or don't. But like fucking forever. I don't do I'm a different I'm different than it was last podcast. Ngoga I'm not even I don't even I listened to what I didn't even know that dude I don't even know that to. Waste yelling about PC culture. It would basically be a reality show like do you agree to? Yes. But I don't think you make. It. Wouldn't. It. More marriages if it was five year. Ten. If Tattoo disappeared in five years. You'd have a face set Mary. I'm Mary you five at fucking. Like Really, find, Brockett a funny joke which is. Woman has to consider. Halle Berry has to consider every marriage proposal. Fuck, she's not fucking anybody but like got a marry, you should be like. Like is this night choose your own adventure book? Am I going down this chapter? Yeah. Yeah it's like it's it's. It's like I'll make if he's rich how could it be? A. Good we're five years. It'd be like a lot of Shit. It would be five years and it would just be like a settlement. You ugly. And? David said a joke one time, which is fame is. Married man. Talking the best. Oh, good All right. It's It's it's I. Don't have to take this shit o'clock. And, I don't have to take this. So. A. Goodbye.

Thanks for having a nice to have you on for starters. I just want to tell you that. I i've been to one of your dry bars. You mentioned that you have a drive our story so i you know i was in new york and i was at a hotel and i was. I don't remember. I was where i was like by the water. I don't know big. But i mean the only hotel that we're in in new york city is the parker meridian wasn't in a hotel. I needed hairspray for some reason. Were you were you at like lower east like ludlow. Because we're right across from that. I mean we have like fifteen or twenty locations in new york one of them. Okay anyways i did for hairspray. vi- google knows. It's funny because i'm like. Hey i need some hairspray and you know obviously if you have renewed sometimes usually not but for whatever reason. I don't remember why required harrisburg that day. I have curly hair. wanted to straighten it a little bit anyway. Walks drive are exists. By the way. I have curly hair and wanted straight that. Why he's longer story. But yes how does that. I needed to keep my hair straight. So i found a dry. Bauer found me really add. I walked in. They were the customer. Service was fantastic but was like this needs spray like well fine but let us. Did you get your hair washed and blown out. Oh that would've been a better story. It would have got 'cause. I mean guys do go in not a lot. I mean i. It is more like new york or like west. Hollywood where we have guys that come in who have long hair and wanted blown out because if they for example of your hair was long you might want to go straight since. It's curly as you get the idea for table. Well because i've been i've been a professional hair for. I don't even know how many years now twenty years. Yeah well he started. When i was like in my early twenty s i'm in my mid forties here. Yeah because why grew up in south florida. And the if you've ever lived himself if you ever been to florida it's very very humid and it's terrible for your hair was like curly frizzy hair and i hated it as a kid and i couldn't manage it and it just was always this thing that bugged me. Is it humid in wisconsin in the summer. But so you know it was just this thing that always bugged me and like you know long very long story short and just not knowing what he wanted to do with my life you know. I always just had this. There was this like seed. I think planted a me when i was a kid that i just was so envious of how you know. I'm really dating myself. But like the christi brinkley's and cindy crawford. Do you know who these people are. i don't know i'm just. I don't know how old you are mold enough appropriate age. They had like this beautiful bouncy hair and truly as a kid. I was like how world did they get their hair like that. Meyer doesn't look like that. And i can't figure out how to get it to look like that and it was just always the thing that i was personally obsessed with with you know fast forward to all these years later and i went to college for like a second. I didn't college was for me. And then i moved to new york city and i lived in new york thought i wanted to work in fashion and and i did that for awhile and then that didn't work out you know it's like a wanted to and or i just realized that wasn't what i wanted to do. And so i went to beauty school in my like early twenties and like completely fall in love with it and learned how to blow my own hair and just loved everything about the industry and proceeded to work lawns and do hair for a long time until i met my now ex husband in new york city and then we moved to la. We had two kids. I have two boys who are now. Thirteen and fifteen And i was a stay at home mom for about five years and then after being a stay at home mom for about five years i was like i feel like i'm gonna lose my mind. I need to get out there and do other things. And so i started a mobile blow dry business in that was in two thousand eight two thousand or mobile nine low drive business. I was basically like running around. La bo drying all my mommy friends because that point i had just moved from new york and i only really was like i was in like the mom. The la mommy culture. Because i had babies that. That's how i made all my friends arve in the mommy. La culture answer have ways to take that sentence. I know i have friends. Who are the. La mommy world and I've you know. Some of them are bachelor fans alike. I've i've been introduced to many mom. It's funny i mean not. I don't know how much you like talking about the bachelor world but i- ironic it will. It's funny because this interview popped up for me and then yesterday i on my podcast reason to bar. We interviewed dale moss. Who's on the season threat. And my trainer is ben smith who is on the show right now as a bachelor and i'm like there's so much easier your trainer. Yeah and i know he's hokey but there's but it's just like the bachelor universe is league consuming you and they're like oh you're going to go sit down with mick and nick the bachelor guy and it's like you're so much more than that. Please keep talking talking now. I'm just saying it's like must be something in. Do you have a bent store. Ben smith well just that i started dirt. Whatever no i don't really. I just my girl that i was working with a nutritionist. Like coach kinda thing. We wanted to get me started like starting out a workout routine and introduce I started me at this place called dues which is a gym like a local west. Hollywood jim but they're they're not open right now. Obviously kobe to. They've been training outside at pan pacific park and so ben is one of the guys who does all the training. So i've been doing that for the last three months and then he was like. Oh by the way. I'm on the bachelorette this and i'm like. Oh no shit you know. I should go watch that so i can see you. I haven't really watched it in court. Well he is doing well. he's doing well. You really dropped some rable weeks. Great very proud of him. I think key he sing really so yeah so said. I don't really have any dirt on ben far we like bad. I mean not that we want any stories like anecdotal. No he's just like a really nice guy. The person not sure we get to know the reality tv. I've only watched. I mean i've really just watched the small little snippets of him on tv. But he's just he's really sweet and Like he really loves what he does with training people And yeah super super personal. Easy to talk to you. I think a lot of what you see on. Tv is like really kind of how he is in real life. Yeah so we're seeing. What you see is what you get what we're seeing. The person is. There's in the even said to him. After i saw the episode where he talks about the suicide and all that i was like it was so sweet. And like just how you told me the story. It wasn't like it was not like for tv version. You know so. Yeah he's great guy back to back to me. Mother blow drying mommy the mommy world. Yeah so i was like really just looking for something to do to get out of the house and do something for myself. I you know. I thought i always wanted to. I thought i wanted to say her mom. And just stay with the kids. And then like i said after five years of that i just got the edge to do something for myself so i posted on like all these mommy blogs and whatever that i was gonna come to your house and blow dry your hair for forty dollars while your baby sleeping like that was the the big business plan and sure enough women started calling me and you're the one doing i was doing it and i i wanted to do it. It was like a way you know to get out of the house for a couple of hours and make some extra cash and you know between gas and driving around la. I'm much we're actually made any money but it was. It was perfect for me at the time. Because it got me like you know doing my own thing and talking to women and not just talking to my children and being at the park all day so anyways was during that time that i realize like there's a pretty big hole in the marketplace and there's no place like dry bar which obviously didn't exist then our anything like it where you can go on for a great blow out at an affordable price you know in a beautiful setting it just there was nothing like it and i thought surely there is enough women who lived in la. Who i you know. I got really busy really fast and i was like i can only handle so many blowouts at eggs. I still to go pick up my kids. And whatever so i was like there must be they see an opportunity here to have a brick and mortar instead of me running around town. Going to women's homes have been coming to me. And so that's what you know. I kind of set out to do. And i got my ex husband. Who's like a creative genius. He's worked in advertising b-be advertising agencies is life and my brother who's like kind of the business side of things and they're both bald too by the way ironically and i got them both involves and said hey i want to turn my mobile business into a brick and mortar. Will you help me. And and they were all in and and so you know the rest of history very cool. We have a lot of moms and wives Who listen to the show. And we often get people who ask questions are around. Reinventing themselves overcoming adversity things. Like that I find that so many people men are or amendment once they get into their twenties. Especially you're like from the midwest south or there's this idea that like once you're twenty and then you find love and you have a kid like that's your life. Yeah and no matter. What like and it's truly kind of scary to reinvent yourself to take a risk to to to realize that you will be have so much more life hopefully till to live like what advice or or what was it for you. That gave you kinda that courage to try to do this. I mean i know you mentioned like you got a little antsy and you kinda tire of maybe just going to the park. But a lot of people feel that way but dow jones take the plunge doubt their ability to do it. You know what were some of the things that you found that helped you motivate you or were you scared or or you're just going to do this well. My parents were entrepreneurs. So i grew up in a very like entrepreneurial environment and i you know for me. It's like i've always been kind of a risk taker and follow. Like what feels right. And you know. I kind of glossed over but as you know as i was growing up in my early twenties i moved around a lot. I was you know hairstylists. I owned my brother. I when i was living in new york. I was working for a fashion designer and then we moved back to south and opened up a couple of stores there and then you know i'm out to kinda when i made the decision to go to beauty school on even after working in the hair industry for years and i pivoted again and ended up taking a job. Npr's was all when i was still in new york just because for me. I've always been very like follow. What kind of gets me excited to get out of bed in the morning. What kinda lights me up. And so you know. I think this dry bar thing and you know the the the reason i started the mobile business was because i wasn't to your point feeling fulfilled. I got married. I had babies and i thought that's what i wanted my life to be and then i realized that wasn't what i wanted my life to be entirely so i searched for something else and i was like. Hey this is. And that's where i think the entrepreneurial spirit comes in with my parents you know having their own business. It's like for me. it's like it wasn't i was like i'm just gonna do this thing and start this business and you know not. I didn't think much about it and it was just like a means to. You know to to fill this issue. That i had or scratch. This is that i had And and i think that you know that's kind of what has always guided me as dislike. You know not allowing myself to do something that like people think. I should be doing to really do what i want to do. And and for me. It was like you know. Starting the mobile business was was something i wanted to do for myself and realizing there is opportunity for dry bar just like that felt like what was next and i think i've always kind of been guided by that. I need to kind of do what what i really love to do. And i think a lot of people you know get really kind of bogged down in this. Like oh. I can't do this because this isn't like what i'm supposed to be doing. And there's this weird you know i. I think it's also like you know a lot. I hear from a lot of women who want to start their own business but they have a pretty good job and they're making pretty decent money but they're like this is not my real. Passion is not what i want to be doing. But i don't wanna leave all this money and you know so it's like for me. I've always just said been been really like driven and like led by my passion and what i wanna do. That's kind of the best advice. I give people as like you got to follow. You know. I really believe in following. What makes you feel excited because life is short. You know and it's like to be doing something that you're not all in on like nothing like sleeping on the most comfortable mattress in the world.

Twenty five is very very different than the person i became at. You know thirty and thirty five and forty and it was like it's to your point you're a you. You change any bulbs so much from your twenties thirties or forties. You know an are. You know my marriage and that relationship didn't make it through. I changed a ton you know. And what i wanted when i was in my twenties bay compared to what i wanted to my thirties and forties was is very very different. So i agree. Stay so in. Your ex husband helped you start drying. Yes how that must have been a challenge to face that had a realization You have kids. You had a business to gather like how did you come to that determination. I asked because again. We have a lot of people who listen to show who that fear of. Moving on hanalei go. How do you kind of come to those decisions and make it and find the happiness that you felt maybe deep down that you deserve nothing against your husband or ship. It just maybe wasn't as nurturing for the both of you anymore. Well i mean. I think that a lot of people end up staying in unhappy marriages because of a lot of reasons you know. They're scared to leave. It ended his skin. It's like thought wasn't probably the hardest thing i've ever made in my life You know but i felt like it. Just it wasn't it wasn't like the right thing for us anymore and you know and it took a lot of The courage i guess is the best way to put it to decide to to end the marriage. And i think a lot of women get stuck in this. Like what will my life with without this marriage without this. You know my partner. And i i i. I'm on. I'm not advocating for divorce. You know i don't i it's like it's funny because i have been somewhat public about my divorce and get a lot of people who reach out to me and they're like i'm really unhappy. I'm thinking about leaving my husband like can you give me some advice and i'm like shit no. I don't know what to tell you like it's like i did. What was right for me. And i think that you have to come to that you yourself and you have to you know figure out it. It's it's it's an incredibly tough road and it was probably that first year. After my divorce was like the most hellish year of my life it was it was horrific. And i you know and it but on the other side much much much happier now than i've ever been in my life i didn't know if that was gonna happen or not. It was like it was such a. It was such a leap of faith. Decide to do that. But i just knew deep down i was unhappy. I knew he wasn't happy. And i also felt like that like unhappiness that we were generating was really bad for our children is hard as divorce was on our kids because it was. It was hard for them. You know they're they. Were old enough to understand it completely. You know it was like i just. I want my kids to grow up seeing their mom and dad in love and happy and what that looks like. We're what we were showing them was like. Even my kids say now like oh. It's so good that you in tag divorced. You guys fought all the time you and i was like we did. I didn't really think we fought all the time we just weren't that happy because we were so distracted with running the business in the fuel. And and so i think i got to the point where i was like. I don't think this is right for. This is good or right or healthy for any of us. And i think that i need to take this leap of faith and you know and had i i mean had i know what was on the other side. I don't know if i would've. I still would've i don't i right on the other side. I mean i got knocked yellow. Can't worry about that. it's funny you said. I don't want to advocate for divorce. I was thinking to myself to advocate for divorce often on the show. But i don't what i do. I think a lot a big part of what we advocate for on the show is to Look past kind of the cultural shames and judgements that come with certain things in life like divorce right because yeah i mean i did not want. I mean talk about shame. I was like i do not want to be a divorced person. I don't want that label at the lincoln. I care catholic family there. I don't think. I don't think there's any like religion that is like divorce option. One goforth forest it's cool. There's always the a shame stigma stigma and i'm just a big advocate of what are whether it's divorce is divorce was one of those things but just the shame and guilt of doing something to your point. That is scary Is you know and some regards self-serving but also could be beneficial for your circle around you and is sometimes blesses. I wonder if because like i talked to my tagline life. I i think about. I did a podcast of the bright side. I a guest. I don't think it's gone off. It'll come out by the time this comes on timing but by point was like she was asking about like me. Moving to la. And i i was working at salesforce. And i had a very established lie. I mean i had the six figure job the career path. I liked the job. The life happen but if someone would have like said you're going to move to la and see we can make it. This is actually what's going to happen and laid it out. You know what. I'm good over the cut like but not knowing enough allowed me to take that risk and there's something about that because in the short term is uncomfortable in scaring you're just like what the fuck did i do. So uncomfortable and scary change. you know. It sounds so cliche but change is always uncomfortable and scary and so people stay away. People don't like change historically you know but it's like it's like the promise of what's on the other side and i think for me. I felt like you know with all due respect to my ex husband and i have a great relationship with him now. Didn't happen right away. But now we're we're on really good terms. But like i just was like this is this can't be it for us for for us separately like you know and while there was like a lot of turmoil and it was hard at first he he you know he also knew that it was the right thing and we you know. We just had some things that we couldn't overcome in. It's like you know you just you want to be able to. I wanted us both to be able to get to something else that we weren't able to achieve in our marriage in in just know it makes a lot of what are what is something that You know whether it's divorce or even a break up or or whatever it is what. What was it that allowed you to persevere through those uncomfortable times because a lotta people will be like. I'm gonna do this. And then all of a sudden like a falls the shit. The i re- you know. The first thing that happens is that it gets harder not easier like oh. I made a mistake. I regret you know. And they they run back to whatever it was that they were unhappy with but was also comfortable. Even if that comfortable comfort zone was still like unhappy tumultuous like. what was it that caused you to persevere. Well i think. I've always been very very You know. I know exactly what i want. I know you know. And i'm i'm pretty decisive on on the decisions i make get. I'm not like a much. Go go back to things. I'm a pretty like this. Is this is my decision and ensure there a moments in. There was a lot of times when after my divorce. That i was like. Oh man like this is a yikes. Yikes you know where. I was so depressed and i had never. I've always been like a pretty like happy. Go lucky person. And i went through like you know. I think it was like situational depression. When i was you to your point like my a my life as i knew it was was was so different and this i was like i know this sounds a little woo but i i was doing a show and i met this guy who had written a book called like I can't think i can't remember energy heels energy yielding doesn a book and he was like i know so and he was. He was like no i was on the show doing an interview and then he was on after man he got he was talking about this. And and at this point in my life. I was like if you if you would have met me two years ago. I probably would have told you like like a lot of information you didn't want hear and i was very like i would cry all the time. I could barely get my shit together enough to do this show. But i did the show and i talked to this guy after because i was so was so interested in what he was saying and i had done. I also did like all the stuff after my divorce. Like i went to like this place called onsite which is like an intense intense therapies. Are like outside nashville. Really phone and you're like in there. I mean just did all the stuff. And we're going on the bachelor transcendental meditation and all these things anyways i mean this guy and he says to me and i spent probably six months doing like intense like i was going to therapy twice a week. I was doing all the shit and he said to me. Your husband held an energy in your life that nobody holds anymore. And i was like. Oh my god that was in me. Well he's because i people would say to me like you're grieving you're grieving the loss of your marriage and i was like i am not grieving. Nobody died like that's stupid. I didn't i didn't like i couldn't hear that you know i was like he's alive. I'm alive nobody. Nobody died you know. And i was like an. I wanted the divorce. Like i was like. I don't i don't understand this. I'm supposed to be like happy in my big plan was like i was going to get divorced and i was going to be dating and i was gonna have this super superfund life. Imagine happen and then i was like what the fuck is going on and then when you know it was done through. They're coming through it. But this guy said that and it was like because i had this partner. This person that i had been with for sixteen years. It's like sixteen. Years is a long time a lot of time and so during for three weeks. I know i mean it's like it's a longtime so now. I'd had this person that. Even though i wasn't in love with anymore that i was like i would talk to every day and i would bounce ideas off of and we would raise the children together and all the things and now it's like. Oh now you don't have any of that like we weren't talking really and you have to like figure out all the kid decisions by yourself. You're a now. I'm now in a new house by myself. And it's like everything was like by myself and i was like you know it was very fucking only one more useful thing that we have to help you. Meet your fitness goals.

Maybe there was a lot missing in the relationship but there was still a mutual respect. And we were you know we were very good friends and even now we could fight but you could be like. Hey i still want to ask your opinion and shit now divorced couple that was like there's boundaries that you had to start establishing boundaries. Couldn't and in you know as you come out of a divorce. You're kind kind of this like foggy. Like what can you ask. And what can you talk about. What can't you in in the beginning. Cam is my ex husband. He was like i. Sometimes we talk to you about kid stuff or whatever. And he's like. I don't know you're on your own and i'm like what but that is a break that i needed. We didn't need to establish the boundaries. So i don't know how other people co-parenting decision i don't know i don't have kids somewhere works now. We're we're really great and like the rules are the same at both houses and we talk all the time and things are great but in those first few months we weren't really talking to each other so we weren't parenting together. Which wasn't great for anybody. I mean those those few first few months where like the wild wild west and in a terrible way from like in the guys were mad at each other were not talking and so like the kids could play them like us off each other like the there was what i was doing. What he was doing was different. And i i don't. I don't know that there's like i. I wish i wish we had done the beginning differently. I was funny one. One time i was we we were divorced. We were separated. And i was in new york for work and i was having just like a really bad day and i actually called cam like crying and was like i just feel so lost and alone and i don't know i was just really overwhelmed. And he had the exact moment. I called him. He was listening to the gwyneth. Paltrow podcast where. She's talking about her divorce from chris. Martin and how. I actually haven't even listened to this. Which i believe but how they really tried to like save friends and for the kids and whatever and he was like you know i do think that we need to kind of keep it together and he was like very comforting to me in that moment and that you know and so like there is fits and starts and like sometimes. It was like then. Sometimes it wasn't but you know we we figured it out and we're you know we're in a good place like i'm happy to report. We were all together for thanksgiving. You know my ex husband. His new girlfriend. I live with my new boyfriend. His ex wife rerun gets along every everyone. It's that's fine it's fine. It was really for the kids. We're like we want the kids in like everybody to be together and it feels like this should be a family thing. And if you know i i really wanted i really facilitated that. I invited cam invited. My boyfriend's act says. I think we should all be together. you know. i think that's what it should look like. It's going to be uncomfortable. Your boyfriend's ex come you expanded. The awkwardness did well. Did you find that we have what point really are. It's too much. I mean it's like it's a lot and it's like it is a very. I mean navigating you know our relationship with my boyfriend's ex wife is is really challenging and Navigating all of those relationships is really tough. Because they're not like any relationship you've ever known before like it's not like like his ex wife is not like a friend like a normal friend would be to me like but i want us to be friends. But i don't really. It's an odd thing and same with his with camps girlfriend. It's just a weird. I'm still it's kinda like it's like some siblings without the uncondemned love kind of i mean i tell you it's really interesting and fascinating to me about. It is like all the kids so my boys are thirteen. And fifteen and my boyfriend's kids are Six and Four they all are like thinking they love each other. They're like super comfortable together. It's like it's great but it's like a force friendship but there's no ego there acid but not for the kids. It's for the kids. It's like it took a little time. But they're like they genuinely all really like each other and there's no awkwardness with them. They're like oh yeah. That's i'm guessing. 'cause there's no ego yeah probably for the exit like got to be a force for a force friendship. Yes no that. But also with the ex's mature like you get it. We're doing this for the greater good but they're still ego there is of like. I know it goes still better than you know like am i is just your ego checks. Better right better. You're fine you're great like amazing. You're like oh. I love your hair. Better meanwhile other person's probably like combatants. Yeah i mean it's uncomfortable. You said it not me good for you for doing it. Yeah and we're gonna all be together and christmas do so we'll see how that goes. That's that's great on spine. But you are now you you. You have a boyfriend do and it's going well. Yeah we've been together over a year and you know i think because co co the craziness of covid like you know. Everybody went into lockdown. we were about. I don't know five months or so into our relationship and we went fast and we're also like in our forties and like you know it's like it's going to be you're talking to be kind of thing and we were very like you know fell in love super fast and Then with covid we like you know we're gonna be we're kind of locked down. We might as well be locked down together and you went for. We went for it and we didn't. We didn't like officially move in then but like over the over the next few months we were like basically living together and then you know he officially gave up his place and we we moved in together and then we recently just bought a place in west hollywood together. So so how do i ensure curious because dr are started with your ex husband. What's the have you been able to draw those clear like you still work with your disease. Still involved yeah i do. I mean we're not. I'm not involved in the day to day like i used to be and i haven't been for a couple of years and cam is has always on the creative work for dry bar but in the last i think it was like maybe two or three years ago. That cam kind of branched out into his start his own agency so he now does all the creative work for. Dr are but doesn't work in house at dry bar and like we started another company called squeeze. Which is this massage concept where it's also a brick and mortar in the same. Founding team is dry bar but it's it's an app based while the everything is out based about it but it's an actual brick and mortar So he that's a client and so now he takes on outside clients but his main biggest kind is dr are so Yes there's a lot of overlap. Still like i do all of our product videos and you know. There's like a handful of things that i'm still pretty involved in that. Overlap with what he and his team does. So you know be in the niche. Initially like i was saying the early days were tough. So he wouldn't he'd have. He has a big enough team where he didn't have to actually show up to that he wouldn't show up to things like i was doing because we weren't like ready to be in a room together but overtime that changed and now we we do things together. All the time cam and adrian. Adrian is my boyfriend now they they like each other and they have a nice relationship to do. So i've my ex girlfriend of years ago. i her husband like i've we were we. We were in the same friend group so like there was never like Like some of my ex's like i don't know where they are. I don't know like with my last six years ago. Like i was able to meet her acts and it wasn't because we had kids or it was just because we had mutual friends like okay. I'm gonna meet your. And i. I like you're pretty cool but probably be friends. Yeah that's kind of how they are. You know they like they genuinely seem to like each other. You know i mean there. Is that like awkwardness. Because you know of me but there is they do. Yeah i know sorry they do like each other and it does. It does work. And and you know i remember my son my older son when i first started dating. He said something to cam like. Aren't you mad. This is when i was new and he was like. Aren't you mad. Dad that there's another man that like is around your kids or something like that son. My son my fifteen year old and an camps response was no like. I think adrian's really great and i think you know i really liked that. You have another like strong man in your life. And i think my i was like holy shit mature very amazing and my it was so great for my son. You know to hear that from his dad and i think it like gave him permission to be like okay. I can like i can accept this guy and let him in. And and my kids adore adrian. You know and it's it's it's not a competition. They love their dad too but they you know different things. Big big big shutout to your your husband for doing that. That's probably what a gift he gab. What a gift yes. What was it about Adrian that know for someone who was married for so long Obviously extra ships are fantastic. Because hopefully we're supposed to like learn about what we like didn't like and then apply it to like fighting. You know future stuff. Were you able to do that. And what were some of the biggest things for yourself that you were able to like you kind of like well you know. You're you're older so like you figure out what you like. Don't like easier right and so if you're lucky enough to meet someone who fits. Then you feel comfortable saying this is what i wanna do. It's a little different than when you're younger just like why love you. So but i don't know if you're like race forever exactly. Yeah yeah we don't know who you are. I think when you're in your twenties and you don't realize that you're gonna change so much And yeah i mean. I think that i i learned a lot about what i you know the kind of the mistakes that i made in the marriage and the things that i didn't you know i was like a big avoid or in my marriage. You know we were having issues. And i think we both were avoiding a lot of the things and like i said before. Like dry bar. Became this big distraction in this thing that we folk and our kids you know it was like dry bar and the kids. It was like our main focus and we didn't focus so much on our relationship. You know to really kind of oversimplify it but You know now. I'm i think i'm a very different person. Having gone through the divorce. And i think i softened as a person a lot because of the divorce you know it was like extremely humbling and like i said i went through this crazy depression and you know and i and i you know i have since apologized to my ex husband for a lot of the shit that i am that i did in the way i acted And those were like pretty important lessons that i had to like really set back to learn And you know things that i try not to bring into my relationship now you know but there are like hard old patterns that we have that are hard to break but i. I'm aware of them now. Where i don't think i was aware of them in my marriage because i wasn't really looking at it And my an. Adrian is like very volve dude. I mean he's he coaches like founders and entrepreneurs for a living and he's like ev. Everything is a big conversation and he. He kind of doesn't let me get away with not talking about anything ever. So we're we have such. We've so much communication at such open communication and so much honesty Which was something that was missing in my marriage that we weren't talking about things we were just kind of like being to year. Yeah you you might. You're just kind of naturally more of them than avoided and personality calms which is fine. I mean i feel like. I'm not i loved and i grew up in a big jewish fan up big but i've ever been a jewish family and my parents. I talked to death. And but but cam wasn't really like that and now you know. Adrian is and he loves to like we talk. You know we wax poetic about shit all the time. And that's that's something that i i realized i didn't know that i wanted or needed a partner but that is something that is important to me you know is that there's there's no stone unturned we are talking about everything and nothing gets kind of pushed to the side. Which i think was a mistake that i you know i made in my marriage that i that i learned from but i also fi. Because i'm more like your adrian room like just talk it out out in the past that hasn't impasse relations for me. I always just annoying. does that. He says he'll say all the time. Like i know i'm being annoying. And this annoying and sometimes i say to him like you gotta pause like you gotta stop talking. I need like calibrate and like process before you keep going you know. And he says that he thinks he can be annoying. And i don't think it's no way like just flooded appreciate but i'm sure to other people i. I'm guessing if i were to talk to him like you've had other girlfriends who have got real fucking annoying right. You just want a good match right. They were they wanted to fight and he was like not willing. I'm guessing to like past indulge in like you know i can be a big fucking brat and i can like throw a fit. And and he's just like won't indulge in that case which is awesome. I i'd be curious talking to your ex husband. Adrian and cam on the show idea accident like like like i don't know what that would that label to think of it. But i'm guessing. I'd be the way you're describing him. I'm similar that he's proudly good at not indulging it now. Yeah for me when. I was like more immature fixer. Like the ego of thinking. I can do this. I would try to and not be like. This person isn't ready to have this conversation. But i would my stubbornness would meet their stubbornness. And then i would either go i would. I'd i'd fall into that trap. Doing what they're doing and just get mad it would be. It would make me really frustrated. That i was talking to someone who didn't wanna talk. Yeah i couldn't make them want to do what i wanted to do. That was on me. But i really struggled with as opposed to be like you know what i'm just not as you we'd have a field day talking. I mean he's you know he's also different now than he was in his. You know his marriage and his pass relationship was also married in the past. Yeah and he has. He has two kids from that marriage and he wasn't married as long as i was but you know he was. You know he also was like have had. I don't really i don't wanna talk too much about his marriage because it's his but you know he definitely had things that he was avoiding and not dealing with two when he like like similar like i did. I mean this. Our relationship is so new for both of us. And i mean we say it all the time we've never been in such a like open honest relationship as we are now. Both we met through a matchmaker. I know it was Obviously it works for you guys. What was that. What's the difference between like a matchmaker and like your normal dating ups. Well i mean. I was using the dating apps and i just was like not meeting the right guys like but not like bad guys but i would. I would meet like a guy who had never been married and like for me. I was like i. Don't i think. I need to be the guy who's been married has kids and like is in a similar boat is me. And then i'd meet guys who were like still wanting to have kids and i was like a that. That ship has sailed like. I'm not having any more babies and so you know it was like it was meeting guys who just didn't want the same. Things of negotiable. So you know so. When i met this matchmaker and i was like. Wow this seems like a better to get somebody who's like much more specific to my needs. If what i want. I knew that i wanted you know a guy that was like a strong man who could also deal with all the complexities that i brought. I you know. I have this big life and i have two. Grown will not almost grown boys. And you know he's just like there was a lot of complications a lot of things that i need. I wanted a really strong. Very like sure of himself guy who was like establishing and successful on his own And you know i had. Yeah i had a couple of like a pretty good list of things that i wanted. And that's that was the beauty you know working with the matchmaker that it was like. Oh you know you can get kind of. We can try to find at least and of course there's just like the chemistry thing that has to work but yeah we for certain people. You're obviously an advocate for the match making progress. I am. I think to have somebody you know. Help you narrow down the pool for sure for sure your woman i am. You're very successful. Thank you couple. Observations cut of nothing gets fast. You obvious observations of there seems to be this stereotype or stigma if you wanna call it that or thought process in society that men or some men are intimidated by successful strong minded women. Yes do you find that to be true. Yes you do. Yeah i mean. I think that's part of like the dating problem you know. I found that like there was guys that i met who you know. Had like their own success and they were like living their lives and you know like a nice livelihood and whatever but then they meet me and they'd say oh wow like you've done really amazing things and you have the built this big business and you've been on shark tank and you all the things and there was this kind of natural like i could feel like they didn't. They just didn't feel like they. You know they had gotten to the point where they wanted to get in their career. And i had and so that was like an intimidating environment for them to be around and that was my experience. I like handful of guys. I dated after my divorce was like oh yeah you know. I think there were a lot of guys who are intimidated. Which was weird to me. Because i like. I don't really care. Like i don't like that all that shit doesn't matter to me like i'm more concerned you and who you are as a person and you know how much money maker where you live and that really doesn't matter to me you know. I just want the kind of person i want. And there's a lot of guys who were just like yo. Do i mean do you think just from a cultural standpoint. Society has taught us that. It's okay for a man to have this monster career and have that being attractive quality rather than somehow as a woman. You almost have to apologize for your success. did you feel that. Yeah i mean. And i wasn't about to apologize for my success. I i was like well. Yeah even if it's not like literally almost like of like yeah it's just like it's fine. I'm not that big of deal. Where like other guys like. Who aren't is such a bigger deal than they really are. I mean there is such a double standard. And you're right. It's like a rich powerful guy like oh every girl wants today that guy because he's like whatever you know and i actually like shied away from dating like the ceo types. Because i also by the way in my experience. Emma don't mean to stereotype. But i found those guys. Were also dating girls like you know in their twenties and thirties and they were in their fifties. And i was like what but i don date that guy either you know and so yeah i mean i do think that there is this weird double standard. I you know and i. I think i felt that. When i started dating that men were like you know it was like to me. It was like for. Adrian was like so perfect for me. Because he's you know he's successful in his job and in what he's doing He's he's just it's such a strong man whereas like a lot of the men. I met were like they were okay their jobs but they were like you know you have wage you much success and that's not comfortable for me to your point you know. It's like yeah. I i was very like like i should. Maybe that coming. But i didn't adverse and i do think there's a. There's a double standard about that. It's interesting because i get asked that question a law. And i wonder if sometimes i'm not as objective as i could be because i two sons i've i don't feel like i've ever been bothered by that. In fact i feel like i've always been attracted to that successful women. I'm in just great. I have a hard time surrounding myself with people without a purpose. Does that make sense. I don't even care like not dating romantically. i just want you to. I'm passionate about what i wanna have. Passion things driving for life. You always have it sometimes. I feel very lost. If i don't feel passionate about something. But i just like laziness is probably one of the most unattractive qualities that i can find someone so regardless of what you're doing in its success levels just like f- be passionate passionate about it. I find it really attractive or when someone says. I'm just really excited about this. Whatever sandwich like women i've dated. It's a big deal for me. And so like when i've when i've when people have said it today are the women always been like. Well i don't think guys are like that but it seems like some of them. Yeah i mean. I get the sense you know. I'm just as speculation. That like there are not all men are like that. Like adrian's like that. He loves like my my passion and drive and he loves like my zest for life. And all of that. But i don i think my guess is there are a lot of men out there that just want their like their girlfriend or their wives to like just you know. Just not have their own thing and just kind of support them. Which by the way. Nothing wrong with that like you know to each his own. You know it's just like it's kinda what makes you tick like you know. Like i said adrian wanted diana woman. He wanted to strong and like someone who's going to go get shit done. He loves that about me. Which sounds like you love that in a woman to not all men do which is why you know the world goes round. I guess you know. I have some friends where it's just. Maybe it's just the need i don't know i just find it to be a very but i do think there are men out there. I mean no there are that are just like you know. Want a different kind of women that they want their women to be like you just you do you know they're. They're intimidated by a strong woman. But a little bit more submissive in a sense couldn't spend that much time with someone that i couldn't value their opinion on a regular. You want them to have their own thing. And i want them to not like be waiting on you for whatever also want to be like. Hey what do you think about this and value their opinion right of course hard to do. If you're just on someone to just be there. Yeah yeah. I mean who knows you know. I don't yeah. So what do you think four women out there who are listening to us and saying oh my god allies my animal spirit. I saw these big dreams big personality. I'm a lawyer doctor. Whatever and they find the same struggle like they're experienced dating has been guy after guy is Feels emasculated by their success. Like what are some things that you think they should do in their dating life to you. Know weed out those people and what are some things that you've been able to find more. May there's fine goal. Get a matchmaker just more. You know not wasting certain. Were not wasting your time in where we're something you can. I think that you can very quickly tell like the kind of guy who's like really interested in those first conversations is a guy for me. It's like i want a guy that's like asking a lot of questions about me versus telling me a lot about him. You know like show that you're really like when you're out there in the dating scene like if a guy is like really genuinely interested in like what you're doing and what you're passionate about. I think that's a good sign that like he. Is you know the kind of guy that wants to support you and wants to like be part of it and not gonna get intimidated. A in my experience guys who are talking about themselves extensively and are they seem very have very little interest in like what i'm doing is like a red flag like your. This is how it's going to be. I mean you can tell a lot from those that i date those first conversations or go one oppor. Yeah all of a sudden is finally. Ask you a question about yourself. You're like oh well. Let me tell you why i'm also doing something. You should impressed by exactly. I mean and you know. Look with adrian like our first interaction was on the phone and i you know i'm such a texter. I remember like refers we did start texting and then he called me kind of out of the blue and i was like. Why are you calling me. Like don't i don't what like you know but then we ended up talking to the very first time we spoke on the phone was like for five hours and we talked to we talked to. We talked to. He asked me tons of questions and he really felt to me like he really wanted to know me. And who i was and that was very attractive to me and that wasn't like something i had experience. A lot of. It was to your point. A lot of guys were like very like pop. You know puffing their chest and telling me all the things about them. And that i think was a is a good indication that that's the right guy Well i think she would've she would've benefited from your voice no conversation because i think that like she probably would have really benefited from that. Do use voice. Notes sometimes screwed. What is this like a thing. I wanted to be more data. It's it's one of those things for some reason. We did like a whole episode on it. Do you remember when facetime. I came out. I found that a lot of people were like. That's weird very resistant to it. And now it's just seems it's while it's almost like why don't you talk on the phone to so that you could face tie especially if you're trying to have more intimate like i don't don't face my manager like it's just like you know tell me what you want but just a more personalized conversation with someone you're trying to have more personalized conversation. I text whatever stainless. Whatever voice notes is a way to like especially early tax dating situation. Just think it's a nightmare to tax much safer voice can't tell data guy right before i met adrienne. Who did that. And we were texting and then he also semi voice voice. No and i was like whoa. And i was like oh i can hear his voice and and you're right i did. I was like oh i like his voice and i actually liked this guy and i like oh. Am i supposed to do that now to you and then i did and it was like one of the first ones i had done it. It is weird but it is like you're right. It is like his whole point was like well. You can like get a feel for me based on my voice in and vice versa. So i i. It is more intimate. You're totally right and it's funny. You mentioned vase because like my kids. Don't call me. they facetime me. They never call me they but they always facetime me and sometimes i'm like in an interview or something i'm do you guys. Joe bayside but but i love it to you. Especially when they're at their dad closing up. I mean i guess what are some things that you feel like. You should leave the audience with from that. It's been really successful for you. I mean it's been great fun conversation. Just gonna feel like so many people listening are gonna late relate to the things that you've experienced with but yeah just final thoughts on on how to have a life more alley. Well just the good stuff. I guess important to you know i mean i think i guess if there's any like takeaway i think that i for me and what i've learned like you know. Just be really really following. You know your gut and your intuition. And i know people say that all the time but it. May i think that like you. You really have to like go deep and figure out like are you living your best life. Are you living the life that you want. Or are you settling. Because you think that's what you should be doing you know and for me i. I was settling for a little while. I also was building this big business and doing this thing and that was that was my focus for so long but you know i think you know my my best advice to people out there like like i said before like life is short and leg. If you're in an unhappy marriage m maybe don't get divorced but maybe try to fix it you know and and it does rub off on your kids and In a job that isn't like fulfilling change. You know i'm. I'm such a big believer in like kinda keep reinventing yourself and keep trying to figure out something that makes you happy both professionally and personally and you know obviously in this like crazy. Time that we're living in it's like we. We happen to have a lot of friends who are going through divorces right now and people who are like you know having a really hard time but i think there is the silver lining in all of it is. It is a really reflective time. We have more time to ourselves. And we've ever really had. It's like like use that time to like kinda redefine yourself and figure out what's best next for you. Yeah i totally agree I haven't been divorced. But i still think the time i when i was first engaged and got broken up with and found out i was cheated on while that all sucks and i thought it would never happen to me was easily. The most like reflective maturing part of my life. For sure i mean. It's like humbling darkness. Go home blade. The humbling experience. The okay. that can happen to me. Okay yeah good. It's really good. It's good to get knocked down like that. Not i mean. I'm sorry to happen to you knows great. I personally could use that. It was five. I mean me too. I mean having gone through what. I went through my divorce. Having to deal with that was like. Oh wow like being knocked on your ass can be really good for you and very therapeutic and grow a ton from it and power through those down downtimes. Yes i mean. I feel i feel like there was like so many years. Where all you know well. There was like a good year is like me and my friends kind of joked about like you know the only way through is through and that was like you know it really was like you have to go through i. I really tried to circumvent a really tried to like hot. What's like fast. What can i do. Because was just like what i know but i was like i really just have to go through all this and i did and it sucked in there and it sucked really bad. But i came out on the other end much stronger. Awesome and thank you for sharing that story. Because i i know that a lot of people listening are going to find this to be motivating and A little glimmer of hope and motivation. Sorry for the husbands. Who are about to get served it. Listen we like you said. We don't advocate for but sometimes it is necessary. And i think sometimes people avoid making the changes at a fear of the unknown. Shame guilt to anybody out there listening. Who's unlike unhappy in their marriage or things they might be on the brink of divorce. Like just now's the time to get really honest. Adrian actually did a live this week about that and we talked a lot about that like you. Just have to like. You might be scared to tell your partner or husband. Whatever that you know you don't like this or that and you're unhappy about it. They may not understand that and they may not know that. So i just come clean with everything and you'd be surprised like how far it got. You awesome. where can people find you. Allie web on instagram. L l w e b b That's probably the best place to find all the things and have going on. I have i'm writing. I'm working on a new book right now. I have a tv show in the works. And i have all sorts of fun project so super excited by. Yes awesome it. You also have a podcast. Oh shit yes. I have podcasts. That yes that's why i'm here. Oh my god. I like thinking so much about like personal on relationships. asian. I have a podcast called raising the bar. We interview entrepreneurs impact leaders and then we have once a week. We drop when that's called shit. The bug says or shit that we love where we're kind of talking about this kind of stuff like relationships customer service stuff that like bugs us about the world and cloud. Servers are kentucky. Yeah i mean roof. That's like a huge one for us and like kind of like a lot of if you listen. They're like fifteen minute. Episodes are really sure. Maybe they're usually like the things that we find that annoy us about like when you walk into a restaurant and you walk into a store and people are shitty to you like just. Don't do that. it's easier to be nice. And i'm gonna give you my money. Be nice to meet you. Basically can't do that. Yeah yeah yeah. Exactly say that to me. I've made people admit that to me. Or i don't want they don't want to admit it to me and then they give me what i walk. Well it's funny. 'cause like adrian will do that. We'll be in a restaurant and you know somebody's not does like something stupid like that and he's like he'll say but no but you can and i'm always like they don't think they're not empowered to like they they will give you this like bullshit answer like well. That's not our policy. It's like it doesn't really matter you just you know you're just like you don't really care you're not getting paid enough to care you know you're only the only thing you have the power to say is no which and then the like. I'm sorry you feel that way. Which is like my least favorite thing on the entire earth like. I'm sorry that way is like i hear you say that we were like i understand. You're upset. yeah like no no. You're saying we're still can't do it. Stop saying can. I'd rather you just tell me. I don't want to help. You would actually be honesty. It's like just me honest so hey listen. I'm not allowed to do that. But i get it fired if i do that. Then you're like okay. Shed on. I want to get this person fire but don't just be dick. I said there should be a podcast called. Don't be a dick. Thanks so much for coming on a ton of fun. Check out her podcast and Her in adrian's podcasts. phasing bars. you wanna give adrian the reason by on all all podcasts for me today on spotify tunes confirmed it. It's on both of those.

We have been married now for five and a half years known each other for ten salmon. I have two daughters Four year oldwhile searching four-year-old name brooklyn and a twenty month old named dylan. Who both look more like shirley temple than either of us Sometimes brooklyn looks a little like gene wilder because her hair is floppy and hilarious And dylan is just a little bowling ball constantly hurting herself by diving all around our house but also completely fearless and we loved them both. Welcome to our love story spotify original from podcast every week. A real couple recounts how they met how they fell in love and the biggest moments of their relationship. Now let's hear their love story The first time. I met david. I had just gotten out of a class at the growlings. It was really late at night. It was like ten thirty And i was about to walk to my car by myself. And it's in like the heart of hollywood melrose and my teacher was like whoa. You shouldn't walk to car by yourself. So she asked a nearby group of students to walk me to my car and it happened to david and his friends and i remember. We chatted the entire time for my car. And i thought this guy. He is charming and he. It's funny really made an impression on me and later when i would ask him about that night. He has zero recollection of it. So i i apparently made quite an impression on him which really makes me feel good so I do not remember that story. That sam just told and i would have remembered it because i remember faces and i definitely remembered hers my first time. I thought that i met sam. She was on stage and we were going to see a show. And everyone was talking. Otis sam girl is so funny and i'm very competitive as as she's like whatever she's not that funny but she was and i remember just seeing her kind of flop around stage like a muppet and it made me laugh and then we asked to do a show with us in our improv group. She just hit it off with all of us. But i think especially me and yeah. That's that's how i remember meeting her. And that's how one could hope to be described on their first memory as as a muppet flopping around. I mean that's what we know to me. I do love the muppets okay. Well that's good. But i think the reason david quickly became my best friend out here in los angeles is he just had i. It's weird saying like he's the male version of me but it really what hit. Don't make a face but it was. We had such a similar style with comedy. And i knew if i would say something that would set him up and he would going exactly where i was thinking and it was so easy with him and we soon started filming things together. Or just saying like oh yeah. Let's let's hang out to do this. We would go to lunch all the time or go on walks and these were strictly friends. My at the time husband knew him and he would come out to lunch with us as well but it was just so easy and also just seeing somebody who could make me laugh like that. I would just like draw. He's very he was very magnetic. I was just drawn him. Yeah we're very similar in many ways sense of humor and competitive so we used to play basketball. I used to crush her. She may have been a little bit more physical than she should have been on the basketball court. I actually the only thing that ever happened. That was a little unto ward one time after a shot joe or rehearsal or something. Everyone like fell asleep on my floor. We were just exhausted and she may have held my hand and i was like that's when i realized that like and at that point she was also separated. But at that point i think even i was like oh. This is more than just friendship. Our first date is interesting because it wasn't even set up like a date. We were still friends at the time. And i was in the sunday company at the groundlings and there's We had a big opening night. And there's a big party afterwards and after it was like two in the morning and he said hey. Can you hang out. do you wanna talk. And i was like sure. And it wasn't weird because again. This is the person that you know. I'd been texting all night telling him how great the show had gone. And how excited i was and so i met him at his apartment and all just up From the party. And i was wearing these big heels and he wanted to go take a walk at the park right across from his apartment which was pan pacific park and so he gave me these slippers that his dad had given him. I think their size like twelve or something. So i am wearing these clowns shoes and we go over to the park and literally like Falling along the walking trail. And we you know talk a little bit about the show and what's going on and then we're just quiet walking. And after a while he said you know don't you and i was like what no way. And he was quiet for a little bit longer and he's like that. I love you and it was the last thing that i was expecting him to say like i. There was no like this is going to happen. Nothing and we kept walking. And i was quite for a while and i was really thinking about it like we. Oh wait and so the first thing is that back was i think i love you too. Because it was just dawning on me. And so we strolled a little bit longer and then we happened upon a bench and we sat there and at this point it's like three or four in the morning because we've been like walking and talking and i just like nuzzle into him and he put his arm around me and i had my legs draped across his lap with like my clown shoes dangling off and we just sat and it was so funny to us. We're like what is happening like. We're best friends here. We aren't as drop. And the i love you. And it felt so general. And there was no weirdness because this person new me better than anyone else in my life and so yeah i remember after this link magical night looking okay and leaning for kids and he shot back and i was like i'm gonna throw up. Oh god no. I've done it all wrong. And he's like. Oh no no i i. I want to do this the right way and i was like. Oh okay. what did i feel compelled to tell her that. I loved her that very night. I don't know i guess. I'm not a huge believer in the cosmos. But i guess the stars just a line like it was two in the morning. We were walking around. She had just had a big night for herself. I needed the attention. No no she just today a big night and i think for me it just felt like it was coming out and it was. I felt like it was kind of obvious. And i guess i wanted to say it and i thought her being there to the more walking in this park and the bench and it just felt right and i thought she was in the same place. Can you imagine files like. What are you talking about the thing i didn't. I knew that that wasn't going to happen. I knew how she felt so it felt simple and easy and you know everyone talks about you. Gotta fight for it. I'm like it shouldn't be that much fighting. You'll get into those fights later when the kids happen. Yeah just sorta felt simple and easy. And i wanted to do it.

And i was about to walk to my car by myself. And it's in the heart of hollywood on melrose and my teacher was like whoa. You shouldn't walk to car by herself. So she asks a nearby group of students to walk me to my car and it happened to be david and his friends and i remember. We chatted the entire time to my car. And i thought this guy. He is charming and he. It's funny really made an impression on me and later when i would ask them about that night. He has zero recollection of it. So i i apparently made quite an impression on him which really makes me feel good so i do not remember that story that sam just told and i remember it because i remember faces and i definitely would've remembered hers. I thought that i met sam. She was on stage and we were going to see a show and everyone was talking. Oh the sam girl is so funny. And i'm very competitive. As a she's whatever's she's not that funny but she was. And i remember just seeing her kind of flop around stage like a muppet and it made me laugh And then we asked her to do a show with us a in our improv group and she just hit it off with all of us. But i think especially me. And that's that's how i remember meeting her and that's how one could hope to be described on their first memory. As as a muppet round mean that's when you know i do love the muppets. Okay well then. I guess that's good but i think the reason david quickly became my best friend out here in los angeles is he just had i. It's weird saying he's the male version of me but it really. What don't make a face but it was. We had such a similar style with comedy. And i knew if i would say something that would set him up and he would go exactly where i was thinking and it was so easy with him and we soon started filming things together. Or just saying like oh yeah. Let's let's hang out to do this. We would go to lunch all the time or go on walks and these were i mean strictly friends my out time husband knew him and he would come out to lunch with us as well but it was just so easy and also just seeing somebody who could make me laugh like that. I was just like draw. His he was very magnetic. I was just drawn to him. Yeah we're very similar in many ways has sense of humor and competitive so we used to play basketball. I used to crush her. Yeah it was a little bit more physical than she should have been on the basketball court. I actually the only thing that ever happened. That was a little untoward one time after a show or a rehearsal or something. Everyone fell asleep on my floor. We were just exhausted. And she may have held my hand and i was like That's when i realized that like and at that point she was also separated. But at that point i think even i was like oh. This is more than just friendship. Our first date is interesting because it wasn't even set up like a date. We were still friends at the time. And i was in the sunday company at the groundlings and there's We had a big opening night. And there's a big party afterwards and after it was like two in the morning and he said hey. Can you hang out. do you wanna talk. And i was like sure. And it wasn't weird because again. This is the person that you know. I've been texting him all night telling him how great the show had gone. And how excited i was and so i met him at his apartment and i was all just up From the party was wearing these big heels and he wanted to go take a walk at the park right across from his apartment which was pacific park and so he gave me these old slippers that his dad had given him. I think is like twelve or something. So i am wearing these like clown shoes and we go over to the park and literally like flimflam falling along the walking trail and we talk a little bit about the show. And what's going on and then were just quiet walking and after a while he said you know. Don't you like what no wed and quiet for a little bit longer. And he's like that. I love you and it was the last thing that i was expecting him to say like i. There was no like oh this is going to happen. Nothing and we just kept walking. And i was quiet for a while and i was really thinking about it like we. Oh oh wait. And so the first thing is i think i love you too. Because it was just dawning on me. And so we strolled a little bit longer and then we happened upon a bench and we sat there and at this point it's like three or four in the morning because we've been like walking and talking and i just like nuzzle into him and he put his arm around me and i had my legs draped across his lap with like my clown shoes dangling off and we just sat and it was so funny to us. I don't think what is happening. Best friends now here. We are in does drop. And the i love you and it felt so natural. And there was no weirdness because this person knew me better than anyone else in my life and so yeah. I remember after this link magical night i was like okay and then leaning for a kiss and he shot back and i was like i'm gonna throw up. Oh god no well. I've done it all wrong. And he's like no. No i i i want to do this the right way and i was like. Oh okay. why did i feel compelled to tell her that. I loved her that very night. I don't know i guess. I'm not a huge believer in the cosmos. But i guess the stars aligned to in the morning. We're walking around. She just had a big night for herself. I needed the attention. No no she just had a big night. And i think for me. It just felt like it was coming out and it was. I felt like it was kind of obvious. And i guess i wanted to say it and i thought her being there to in the morning us walking in this park and the bench and it just felt right and i thought she was in the same place. Can you imagine if i was like what are you talking about the thing i didn't. I knew that that wasn't going to happen. I knew how she felt so it felt simple and easy and you know everyone talks about you. Gotta fight for it. I'm like it shouldn't be that much fighting. You'll get into those fights later when the kids have. Yeah just sorta felt simple and easy. And i wanted to do it. Thanks so much for listening to finish this episode in here more.

Protests Around the Country Over Police Violence Erupt Into Vandalism and Looting

"It's Monday June first. I'm Oscar Ramirez in Los Angeles, and this is the daily dive. Protests around the country are erupting into violence, vandalism and looting. Protests against police, brutality and support of George Floyd have been hijacked are detracting from the original message. Curfews have been set in more cities and the national. Guard has been called into backup police in about sixteen states. Steve Gregory reporter for Kfi News in Los Angeles was at the destructive protests over the weekend in L. A., and join us for what he saw and reactions from business owners who got their businesses ransack? Next well, unrest continues across the country concerns about the coronavirus pandemic still remain. We are still waiting for treatment or vaccine, but there's also some uncertainty immunity for those that have had the disease recovered. We still don't know for how long someone might be protected from covid nineteen after they've gotten it. And in your body, it's not just antibodies that are fighting the virus e cells, and t cells also help fight illnesses after antibodies have disappeared. Catherine Wu Science reporter at Smithsonian magazine joins us for why immunity the coronavirus so competent. It's news without the noise. Let's dive in. Will bring us the law to reestablish your liberty to reestablish and save lives. But we cannot do that. When folks are lighting fires shooting at our officers, throwing projectiles and escalating things joining us now is Steve Gregory reporter for Kfi News in Los Angeles. Thanks for joining US Steve. Always a pleasure Oscar wanted to talk a little bit about the protests going on around the country after the death of George Floyd by police officer Derek Alvin after he put his knee on his neck. There's been protests going on all across the country and they've been intensifying leading to violence looting. All all sorts of crazy stuff has been happening Obviously, it started in Minneapolis. Atlanta had a particularly bad moment. I think Philadelphia's getting some of it, but over the weekend also Los Angeles. Angeles kind of devolved into this whole thing. It all started with a protest. It was a black lives matter protests, and then throughout the day things just got worse and worse so much so that cities are imposing curfews about five thousand National Guard troops have been activated and I think sixteen states total Steve. You're out in Los. Angeles cover some of that. START US off by talking about the presence of the National Guard. What does that mean? And how do they act with the public? You know the national. Guard is only there to be a support mechanism. The National Guard does not have arrest powers that's gotta come down from the top from the federal government. So what happens is when a national guard is activated for security purposes like this, they'll act as a support sort of security area they will. Create check points for people coming in and out of various that might be blocked off to the public. They'll also guard a businesses they'll. They'll figure out ways to put up secure perimeter so that people can't get into those areas mostly. They're there to keep people out of areas so that firefighters can get in and clean up messes store owners can get in there and clean up. Their messes souped up the broken glass. Get the dumpsters off the streets, so basically a national guard presence. It's twofold one. It's the optics you know I think the presence of a military establishment in someone's city sort of conveys the message that we're serious and This has gotten really out. Out of control and the second part is it frees up police officers to go home and get rest. You know because they were working a lot of overtime. The city was on tactical alert, which means every employee of the department is subject to being called out in for the first time in twenty years. Every sworn officer the Los Angeles Police Department was activate it, and that's why the National Guards presence is important because they can help. Pick up the slack where the police department can't do it watching this play out on television. It seemed that the cops were armed with rubber bullets. They had batons. They had shield in some cases. What is the National Guard armed with? Well the National Guard is armed was typical ar fifteen. It's the standard standard issue. Now it's my understanding that only in some areas will they show an armed presence most other areas? It's just their physical presence that's enough and could be enough, but they they are armed, and they don't have a rules of engagement officially the only time that they can really use. The weaponry is if they are engaged in a basically life or death situation. Let's move on to a little bit. What was happening in Los? Angeles and I said this is happening all over the country, but Steve You and I live in Los Angeles. So you know a little more familiar with the details here? What happened that where things went wrong? The the it all started as a black lives matter protests in a park in the Fairfax district, which is a popular area where there's a lot of shops and whatnot, and then soon thereafter everything just started getting heated. There was multiple cop cars that were set on fire vandalism spray painting graffiti all over the place. It just went haywire well, and as you mentioned we. We both live in Los Angeles. We both have seen a lot of these types of protests over the years. I have to say this rates right up. There is one of the worst I've seen one of the most intense only because this crowd felt more emblazoned, they felt more empowered for whatever reason they felt like. They could get by with more. Push the envelope, even further but you're right. What's usually starts out as a very mild sort of peaceful protest march in Pan Pacific Park of it quickly turned ugly. Now what happens is that you always have this core of agitators and these agitators come from various. Groups Down Los Angeles. Them as fascist fascist groups are the these other factions of. That are very anti-government, but what they do is they come in, and they infiltrate these otherwise very peaceful groups, and all they do is, they'll throw projectiles which could be frozen water bottles, rocks sticks whatever at police officers, and that immediately changes the whole dynamic, because now officers are in a protective mode, and they have to get into a defensive mode, and that's when things start getting ugly, because then when that happens, the please show more of an aggressive presence. The crowd gets agitated. He gets. GETS WORKED UP AND ALL IT takes, and it's sort of this mob mentality. Once things start rolling. It's hard to dial it back. Just sort of intensifies and roles, and continues to build and build them build until you get what you saw last night, and that's police car set on fire stores, getting looted, and just people, don't. They just don't even care? They don't care who sees them. They don't care if they're being videotaped the go in they loot offices, lutes storefronts. It doesn't really. Really matter and it's only because a group of agitators knows exactly what they're doing. They know if they get in there. And they stirred up. They've become very adept at stirring up crowds and getting police upset. Yeah, I'm watching this. It definitely seemed like at least three different types of groups that were there people that were protesting for the right reasons against police, brutality and supportive. George Floyd then. It seemed like you said these agitators. That were there to kind of get it on with. With the cops, and then beyond that even the lose people that seem like they weren't even part of the initial protests driving up in cars, running in a storefront getting as much as they could, and then leaving, so it seemed like there was a lot of different groups out there in the people that you spoke with what was the sense that you got? Did you were able to speak to any of these so-called daters that were just open about them, just wanting to caused mayhem. Sure you know. I had situations where some didn't like me being there. They were very upset at me. Because now, the media has become a target. The in the media now have become a big part of the angst that they're going through. In fact, I had one group told me that they thought I part of the problem. I was part of the big issue. The bigger issue so I step back I respect the boundary, but I have others that'll tell me that they're upset and they're disappointed because they wanted to come down to convey their message, they had signs that say you know enough police brutality You know they they have. You know regular people just everyday people from all different backgrounds, shapes, sizes, colors genders. Face everyone coming together because they have a common goal, and that is to convey their message that they're tired of police brutality, but then again. I talked to others that they have absolutely no idea what the big picture is. In fact, one guy spoke with couldn't even remember George Floyd's name. He couldn't remember the name of the guy that got killed by the officer. And that's that's part and parcel to what happens here. It attracts people from. All different types of groups, but it always starts with that core of people who set out as you mentioned all the right reasons and quickly turns ugly, and what happens after that is that the message gets lost. This becomes the story now. The looting rampaging the violence and people that started off. They're protesting in support of George. Floyd and against the you know the COP Derek Chev. WHO's been charged with third degree, murder and second degree manslaughter that. That whole part of it gets lost Steve. I also wanted to ask because there was a ton of looting. There was a lot of big shops and people. There's a shopping center. They're known as the Grove. People broke into the apple store there and to Nordstrom's started looting there, but there's also a bunch of smaller businesses along those streets that also got looted. You had a chance to speak some of those some of those business owners. What was their reaction? They were just disappointed. Because a lot of those business owners are minorities and the. The ones I spoke with last night I spoke to Armenian Hispanic Rwandan. is all different minorities last night, and they were also disappointed because they all said. We have all gone through our own discrimination. We've all been mistreated by government. We've all been mistreated by law enforcement, so they understand the pain that a lot of these people are going through, and what the protest mean, but they just can't wrap their head around the fact that they can't equate trying to convey. The message was stealing their merchandise. They just don't understand how that. The the memory of George Floyd by stealing four thousand dollar I mack system, and or you know hundreds and hundreds of dollars worth of tennis shoes. The can't wrap their head around that and the one guy spoke with who owns a vintage store or they're on melrose. In the Metro shopping district. They put their life savings into this. They've been there for ten years and they. They sell all kinds of very high highly priced collectibles close from back from the fifties and sixties and historic, completely trashed I stood there, talking to him, and his voice was shaking times he was, he started out very angry, and then his voice started to shake, and it was very emotional for him, because closer laying on all over the floor. There's glass everywhere. They stole his. His safe he said the damage end. The losses are in tens of thousands of dollars. It's just a sad situation to see. Obviously, we're there is this ongoing unrest throughout the country with regards to what happened with George Floyd and others. You know it's not just him. This is just the latest catalyst for these types of protests, but want them to be civil we want. Want them to be peaceful and get that message across in that way. It's just a shame when this stuff happens, but it seems like it's not gonNA stop anytime soon. There's protests continuing throughout the next few days and like I mentioned curfews are set. A National Guard has been activated in about fifteen sixteen states now, so we'll have to keep watching out what happens there. Gregory reporterfor Kfi News in Los.

These urban that thirteen year blood for those immune molecule that your body makes in response to pathogen, the transplant fakty kind of. Dusting for fingerprints after a crime has occurred at a crime scene, joining us now is Catherine Wu Science reporter at Smithsonian magazine. Thanks for joining Catherine. Is To be here. Wanted to talk about the coronavirus covid nineteen. We've been battling this for some months now and one of the things that we haven't had a chance to really wrap her head around his immunity from the virus. Once you get it. Are you even completely immune from it and there's a lot of stuff that goes into it. It's pretty complicated in the way it works in our bodies, so catherine help us out a little bit understand why immunity to this has been so complicated so far. Yeah, I mean I'm really glad that you're looking into this because it's best. Best a complicated question and I think during such a chaotic time when their lives at stake, people really want clear cut answers and I'm sad to report that we don't have a lot of those right now. I think the most important takeaway at this point is that even though we have passed and a lot of people working very hard on this disease and how to fight it? We don't really have clear. Cut Answer on whether or not. People are going to be protected from getting infected with the virus a second time even if they've recovered from about public. The way that I sort of look at this is a lot of people by now skirt of antibody. Test that thirteen your blood for those immune, most dual that your body makes in response to a pathogen transmission fact, you kind of like dusting for fingerprints after a crime has occurred at a crime scene evidence that something has been in your body, but that's very past focused look at disease. It doesn't tell you a whole lot about the speaker. And one of the things with the antibodies that I didn't really know about too much that they have a kind of a short lifespan, and the disappear from your blood after a few weeks or months depending on how strong your immune system response was, and it's really these other cells in your body that kind of remember what those antibodies were, so if the same pathogen comes back into your body, obviously, we're talking about covid nineteen if you get infected against. These other cells are the ones that remanufactured those antibodies, so there's a lot of other stuff involved in really making your body continued to fight these diseases. Exactly, definitely! Point, waiting, drive home so cynically about the antibodies. You're exactly right. There are molecules made by the body by a population called B. Cells, and the difference between you know that old adage like you know. Give them person efficiently or day. Teach them how to fish them. They can eat for life. Those antibodies are pretty temporary, but what is really important, are those B. cells with remember how to make those antibodies against the virus itself, and so you really want those B to stick. Stick around some kind of go dormant after you've workman, and under ideal circumstances so hanging around in your body, so then we'll keep dividing or up a really long time in the bone marrow, and then if pathogen kind of comes to invade your body again, they will recognize at the past in combat and manufacture those antibodies per second time, and the response will be even stronger and faster than before possibly so fast, and so strongly may not even experienced symptoms the second time. Yeah of course, that's what everybody would hope for that. They can have so there's also there's B. Cells, and then there's t cells, A. T. as in Tom, and some of these cells also help in this same thing, manufacturing and helping fight the viruses once they come back. So beef Elvin Tito are kind of two prongs of what's called the adaptive immune response, and that's the kind of slow wave that kicks in roughly a week into infection. Depending on what pathogen we're really talking about and tesol serve kind of a different functions like I guess I. C E cells as weapon factories. Whereas t cells can actually accomplish a lot on their own cells can either help b cells make antibody, so they're sort of supporting the antibody factories as they're churning these really important disease fighting molecules. Can sort of fight their own war. They can actually identify your own felt like the rest of the cells in your body like the cells that might line your airway. The ones that have been infested with a virus and actually send the signal. Tell them to self destruct, because at point they figure that sells a lost cause. It's been infected with a pathogen. The best way to deal with the situation is to make that cell get rid of itself, and that will also theoretically destroy viruses inside of it. Do we have any information yet I know. We're very uncertain. On this whole thing. I had been reading about a study in South Korea that basically said some people that have re tested positive again for coronavirus weren't shedding active particles of the virus in other words they were clearing all those people. If you had covid nineteen and you recovered, you are no longer infectious to other people, so it kind of plays into this whole thing, but has there been any other studies going around the ceiling that I've seen really. I'm glad you brought up that bit of news. Because I think there's a little bit of nuance there, that's important to get into. I feel like they were a few reports coming out in early days, talking about reinfection like people were testing positive, having symptoms, then recovering and testing negative, and in this case I'm talking about the tasks that looks for the virus, not antibodies. This is a diagnostic test that can tell whether or not the virus is in your body, and probably active people were testing positive than negative than positive again and people. People were wondering. Are People Getting reinfected? Does that mean that these people aren't immune to the virus, and we're just doomed to get infected over and over again I think a lot of experts have since come forward to say that these people probably were fighting the virus, the virus sort of declined to very low difficult to detach levels in their body, and the tests were missing the virus, because it was go in the body, and then after some time, maybe immune system kind of relaxed in the virus navy took the option. You just sort. Sort of back to higher levels levels that were maybe triggering another bout of symptoms or making the virus detectable by these tests again and so I think in that sense. It's really difficult to say exactly what was going on inside the body, but that doesn't necessarily bad news. There are a lot of pathogens including viruses, bacteria, parasites, kind of linger and the body, but if were able to detect the early won't necessarily be universal for everyone, and we can develop treatments that can either keep the bars at extremely low levels so that people aren't. Aren't experiencing symptoms or are shedding the virus. That's of what happens with HIV and people and you know live very long lives in that case, or you know this kind of informed. When can sort of target and treat the virus so that it doesn't establish maybe a population in the body. That's going to be this long lasting, but I definitely don't want to give people the impression that this is the norm that they're going to be stuck with the virus permit Louis. Just thought could be the case for a sub population of people. Catherine Wu Science reporter at Smithsonian magazine. Thank you very much for joining us. Thank you. Note! That's it for today.

Gen Z Is Getting Ready To Vote. Are Political Parties Speaking To Them?

"Think of all the ways. Twenty twenty has been unprecedented year. It's a lot for anyone to process especially someone voting for the first time. It's overwhelming because of everything going on and it's like, wow, it's it can really make a difference what I to do. Then cruise was thinking about this recently at the Skate Park where he hangs out in L. A., a colleague Elsa Chang met with within their manny turned eighteen just a few months ago just started college at Cal, State Dominguez Hills, Ho, Casa Tony, Tony in the generation. We're all fewer overly forced to grow up so quickly and what do you mean you feel like the class of twenty twenty was forced to grow up quickly With the whole situation, the pandemic I I was having a conversation with my friends and we were talking about how we feel. We're still in highschool. That's at least. That's how it feels. Same froze time froze for a second in out of nowhere you just. Religious thrown into this new chapter of our lives. Consider this. In a year that's been completely unpredictable generation Z. born after nineteen ninety-six is getting ready for an unprecedented election but the major political parties aren't speaking to some of those voters. From NPR, I'm audie Cornish. It's Wednesday September ninth. This.

It's consider this from NPR. The thing you've heard for years is that young voters are less engaged and less likely to turn out but that's been changing it sure. Has Young People Really Baroque. Expectations about participation in the two thousand, eighteen midterm where young people turned out at a almost twice as high of a rate as the previous mid term for youth, Keiko Shama is the director of the Center for Information and research on civic learning and engagement. It's at Tufts University. She told NPR this month that a primary election just held in Massachusetts says a lot about the youth vote this year. Father was a union leader. He taught me don't make for your rights. and. Longtime. Incumbent Senator seventy-four-year-old Ed Markey. It was running against a much younger opponent as and he wasn't even born when Ed markey started his political career but this wasn't just any opponent it was thirty nine year old congressman, Joe Kennedy, the third President John F. Kennedy. What's his great uncle? Marquis knew he was up against a dynasty. Here's how he ended one of his campaign ads. With all due respect. It's time to start asking what your country can do for you. Know one named Kennedy had ever lost statewide election in Massachusetts much less again someone who uses the words of John F. Kennedy, an ad like that for generations. Now, that would have been an absolutely politically suicidal move and yet tonight look at this Ed Markey who ran that ad? WHO TOOK JFK's words who said no, it's the opposite. He has defeated Kennedy in Massachusetts this is official the AP. Keiko a Chama Ginsburg at said Ed. Markey one by embracing young voters and we're not talking about zoom phone banks. Okay. There were twitter, Stan accounts and TIKTOK. And markey is a huge proponent of a major issue for young progressive voters environmentalism. He's sponsor of the green new deal and the other co-sponsor Alexandria Cossio. Cortes. So there is a lesson moving forward for any candidate from any party to really think about why Perhaps the member of Kennedy family may have lost. His young people really aren't into brand labels. As much as they are into the values candidates hold. So, we know young people are turning out in higher numbers, their focus more on issues and values but let's talk more about how the political parties are talking to them. NPR Political Reporter, WanNa Summers looked at that question especially when it to young conservative voters and WanNa what have you found? Yeah. So I have been talking to young voters specifically who are members of generation Z. we're talking about young voters born after the year nineteen, ninety six in lake. Millennials who are a bit older they largely lean left by found quite a number of young conservatives who wanted to talk about their politics in this moment and to give you a little sense of where they fit on the. Political spectrum we turn. To, circle which is a research center at Tufts. University research found that nearly one in five young voters who backed Republicans in two thousand eighteen plan to support Joe Biden instead of Donald Trump and the November election. So are they just wary of trump the man or do they see issues with the party more generally? Yeah. So I think it's a little bit of both but perhaps, the biggest thing that has come up in these conversations I've had with these young conservatives is they feel that the party is leaving people like them behind because it's not talking about the issues they actually care about one of our main themes is that there are issues that. Voters care about including on the center, right? That the Party has failed to address time and time again, climate change racial injustice eligible to do plus issues. That's Mike Bro. He's twenty years old and a student at Georgetown University, and he and some friends recently launched a group called Gen Z. Gop, and their goal is to reach out to other disaffected young Republicans. Bro told me that he plans to vote for Joe Biden in November but he's really hoping that when the twenty twenty four election comes around, Republicans have a better option than donald trump. Now, I, think with the ultimate determinative factor is that. Draws me away from him. Lately is his poor approach to governments in that's evident in his handling of the nineteen pandemic. It's no longer just his policies are inconsistent with my views for what's best for the country it's how he approaches those policies. At the same time, this isn't exactly a common view for young conservatives right I mean you mentioned that one in five young voters who voted Republican in two thousand eighteen plan to vote for by that's still a lot of people voting for drop What did they have to say? Yeah one of the people I talked to is Grace Klein she's eighteen. So this is her first. And she's just starting her first year at Arizona State University and she described the interesting feeling of coming of age as conservative today I still remember sitting in this restaurant with some friends and be like, oh, wouldn't it be like the weirdest thing if the race ended up being trump versus hillary and we were like? I would never happen that'd be so awful and Lo and behold it's what happened. That was four years ago and it was clear that client was very against the idea of trump as her party's nominee but it's four years later now and things have changed I'm going to be voting for the first time in November, and I am an adamant supporter I will one hundred percent vote for him. Klein. Told me that perhaps the biggest issue that drives how she chooses to vote is the issue of abortion I believe that the right to life. Starts at conception, and if a candidate doesn't support that, I will not support them before I. Let you go. I want to ask about one more thing. The undecideds is there such thing in generation Z. I think they're absolutely as as I've been having these conversations with these young voters a lot of them describe a feeling of feeling torn they dislike and distrust the president but they're not satisfied with politics on the left and Palmer Vice President Joe Biden, there's a generation of young Republicans out there who say they're left essentially without a political home. NPR'S WANNA summers. So, let's talk about young people and the Democratic Party. Now when the pandemic I hit eighteen year old man crews you've heard from at the top of the show started working more shifts at in and out Burger and he did that because his mother who cleans houses and his brother was a barber both lost work. So that was really difficult I I. I started working from one day we to six days a week six hours eight hours every day. Living that reality while at the same time watching the trump administration's hostile actions towards immigrants are big reasons why he's voting for Joe? Biden. But he told my colleague Elsa Chang. His problem isn't necessarily with President trump himself. It's what his victory in two thousand sixteen revealed about Americans. You can be angry at Donald trump you won't blow timidly we as a country chose to put them there. So or read. Put all of this blame on one person when in reality I feel he's just exposed a lot of things within ourselves. A lot of people voted for him because they shared a perspective that he had and what is that perspective I'm not by any means saying the Republicans are racist but I will say that just generally a lot of people who I've seen support him ten have a lot of racist perspectives. Year after year, the Hispanic vote is more consequential in fact Pew Research Center says one in four Jen's ears in the US is Hispanic with a new candidate comes new possibilities. So I feel with my first time being able to vote I can take a step towards said possibility of a difference. So I feel it matters a lot and I wish everyone that too. But other years we talked to they feel that sitting out the presidential election is actually a better way to send a message. That's how it is for email Morton, I met up with her Pan Pacific Park where she had protested against racial injustice just a few months ago all around here I remember people being you know kind of stacked on the side of the hills as well. Morton is twenty. She's half Filipina half white a student at Occidental. College and she has no intention of voting for any presidential candidate this year what I would say the last domino to fall for me was seeing Bernie Goetz shut out this year after being shot at in two thousand sixteen I didn't think he was the perfect guy I didn't love him or see him as like this cult of personality. But I saw him as like a very real change to what the legacy of politics in this country had been. More than says, watching Sanders, get shut out reminded her how far off track the Democratic Party has gotten according to Pew. Gen Z. is the country's most pro government anti-trump generation but Morton says Democrats should not count on. Jen's ears to be automatic allies when the Democratic Party coalesced around Joe Biden I remember. On registering from the Democratic Party leads A. That's how against Joe Biden. And represent to you. That is wrong. It's not just Joe Biden and I mean it is really a Democratic Party as well. Morton says she's grown to resent over time the sorts of positions Democrats continue to take, and since Biden will probably win the blue state like California. Anyway, she's not going to give him her vote. and. So She's devoting herself to grassroots organizing. Morton l leads a coalition of groups that demand racial justice environmental, justice, and housing rights for all. I listen to her talk about the black lives matter movement and wanted to stand in solidarity with Beal Mla Welfare System. Like more of a mutual aid format in the housing crisis. So many people who are either on housed or who will likely be common housed in the next and the environment. If I, live for another like fifty or sixty years, the climate is going to start getting pretty unlivable. And I came away wondering what is it that you grew up with that makes generation sound the way you sound right now I think there's so many things like I don't remember a life pre-nine Eleven. So I have grown up under the guise of like what so many people would describe as a surveillance like I don't know what it's like to live in a country where the US hasn't been bombing children in the Middle East and I've seen like under the most progressive presents today Barack Obama you know. Protests are still brutalized in Ferguson and at Standing Rock, and then the same thing is happening again and ending now is the time to like have a little faith in the idea of being radical and reimagining the world could look like. Re imagining the world isn't exactly easy but Morton says, it is worth a try. My colleague, Elsa Chang, and there's more of her reporting on voters in our episode notes. Thanks for joining us for consider this from NPR I'm Audie Cornish and I'm Jonathan Wilson. From WMU and I'm Rachel Curzio with deceased Est. it's considered this from NPR and W amu. The Washington Metro. Rail. Safety Commission has released the results of a new audit which found that Metro's rail operations. Control Center is a quote toxic workplace filled with quote racial and sexual comments, harassment and other unprofessional behaviour Rachel. What is the Control Center? Exactly what is its purpose? So the control centers would it sounds like it's the nerve center of the entire transit agencies. So it's directing all of the metro train. Traffic and when something goes wrong with the Transit Agency for any drivers or anything like that. That's where the crises are handled or at least where they ought to be handled. So in this audit investigators interviewed rail controllers and they mentioned some pretty disturbing things about their work environment. They said managers were using racist sexist homophobic language towards controllers that they were understaffed and there was a lack of training and I think. What's key to take away from this is the report also draws a connection between those workplace environment issues and writer safety. Why do you think that this has the potential harm riders well, I mean we've been talking about a safety culture or trying to establish a safety culture at Metro for more than a decade we reporting by WMU's Jordan Paschal and Jacob fenced-in goes back quite a long way revealed that some issues. Raise after a fatal metro related crash back in two thousand nine and that makes me feel old because I remember reporting on that crash at the scene after that crash at Fort totten and also in two thousand fifteen, and then a minor fire on a track in December twenty nineteen all these had still not been resolved to create a culture of safety at the real operation centers if you have people who are. In charge of making sure the transplant safely and they're not taking their job seriously or they're making other people in that building feel unsafe. You can see why it trickles down unfortunately to real danger for riders David Mayer is a CEO of the commission that came up with this report. He talked about the danger of not resolving these issues at a recent meeting on the rail operations control, Center Metro had. Had indicated to the NTSB that it had provided vent fan play books to all of its controllers. But our interviews with controllers revealed that none of them had the playbook at their consoles and that the controller spelt that they're they're training to operate the vent fans was inadequate and we were very concerned that that that that operational posture could lead to a repeat or worse of the events of Twenty, fifteen? What he's referring to back two thousand fifteen was a deadly smoke incident that led to the death of one commuter, Carole Glover and injured more than eighty others that event prompted allegedly increased oversight of Metro especially from federal agencies and federal officials found that the technology issues that had led to that incident were really related to quote. INEFFECTIVE, Inspection and maintenance practices at the transit agency. So really it all comes back to that safety culture or lack thereof that we've been hearing about for so long and this was a common theme for Mayor in that meeting that. All these federal agencies have investigated Metro and they keep finding the same thing. Where is this safety culture? Where is this work culture and they say that it really hasn't improved. So why do we expect that this report in these findings are going to be any different than what we've heard before well back in June. Control Center director stepped down after reports of what safety violations now, Metro is looking to hire a new director to replace that person. Metro has forty five days to respond to the audit and provide details on how it will address all twenty-one areas of concern laid out in the report including Controller Training Leadership Coaching and the Commission director says he thinks that metro can meet that deadline in one thing that's important to think about as we zoom out a little bit is that this is all happening. In a context of Metro, facing a huge potential budget shortfall. That's because of lower ridership due to the pandemic right as they were starting to get their ridership back. What Metro said in a new budget release is that if they don't get any federal assistance, it could lead to the need for layoffs and or reduced service. Thanks for joining US four. Consider this from NPR listen again, next time, and we'll make sense of the major stories happening in Washington region and elsewhere in your world I'm Jonathan Wilson. I'm Rachel courteous.

Introducing: The Secret Life of Canada

"Hi i'm michelle. Shepherd host of uncover sherman any from cbc podcasts in nineteen. Ninety nine fifteen year old charmian on devel- disappeared on her way to a job that police believed in exist. For months later her remains were found in a wooded ravine. I revisit the case that has stayed with me for over twenty years ever since i first covered it as a cub crime reporter for the toronto star. You can find uncovered cher meany on. Cbc listen on your favorite podcast app. This is a cbc podcast. Hi everyone falen here. We have a special bonus episode from another show for unreserved podcast subscribers. It's an episode from the cbc. Podcast host. leah. Simone bone the secret life of canada. Where together we hold up a microscope to moments of canadian history that have been widely overlooked. This episode is the first of a two part episode called gonesse three hundred years later. It's been about thirty years since an event that you may know as the oca- crisis but that's not where this story begins instead. We look at the three hundred year lead up to that quote unquote crisis on mohawk land. Heavily anniversaries can be a strange thing in canada. Depending on who you are and which side you are watching from sometimes these. Anniversaries aren't celebrations. They can be marked with morning with quiet remembering or even a conscious forgetting sometimes. Some of us celebrate that which others mourn for what was lost. It was july nineteen ninety. I spent most of my time on the resit. Six nations outside running around with my siblings or my cousins climbing trees playing ninja turtles or some other weird made up game where we were like wizards and stuff. The outside world was so different from the inside world. Outside we ran. We played inside. The tv was always on always on the news. Cbc news world had just launched and so for the first time in canada there was twenty four hour news it was never ending images of smoke guns yelling rocks hate and people who looked like my family pushing up against police in the army. I didn't understand. It was but i remember understanding something then about racism about hate uca's golfers have been playing the towns little nine hole course for more than thirty years now coexisting uneasily with the local mohawk band but when the course announced plans to expand onto other land considered sacred the talkie mohawks took to the barricades. They'd been there ever since. This is the secret life of canada. A podcast about the country. No and the stories. You don't alia pay falen okay. So this episode is eight to partner and i have to say it is a bit of a doozy. This is our first two parter. And i feel like there have been a bunch of doozy's so i i feel well prepared. Yeah we've covered a lot of heavy stuff. Yeah and say. I wasn't prepared to this. I thought i was. But i really. I wasn't as a mohawk woman This one cuts pretty close to the bone and it kind of dug up some stuff that i was surprised to find still there today. We're going to look into the history of ghana. Sotogrande specifically the events that led up to what has largely been described as the o. Crisis right yes the oka crisis and i feel like we probably correct me. If i'm wrong might see some shades of the april wash crisis that we spoke about season. One this is very true but this isn't going to be an opioid crisis episode. This is about what led up to the crisis. And you know. I really hate using the word crisis when we talk about confrontations or disputes that revolve around indigenous land up for me. It just raises the question. What constitutes a crisis. The word crisis is used when indigenous people finally stand up for their land rights and demanded fair. Do they request negotiation. And i gotta safe for us. The crisis for us on our side has been what's been going on for five hundred years right since contact. Yes and although five hundred years may seem like a long time ago connection to the land runs deep the agreements that were made we still honor and we still hold and so today for part one of this episode. I'm not going to tell you about the quote unquote ohka crisis. I'm going to tell you about ghana's to target how it came to be and what led up to the so called crisis because if you want to understand the oca- crisis you have to know the story of gonzaga back before. Canada landed on top of indigenous people and their lands. The people here had distinct societies languages and cultures. The yoga or mohawk is commonly referred to is one such group. How did then you all become known as the mohawk. I'm assuming settlers or is that an indigenous word or ding ding ding. Yes yes you are correct. Give woman apprise. The name mohawk comes from the elgon coon word Which translates to bear place people so this was bastardized by the dutch into mohawk. The dutch heard this word and then they kind of turned it into mohawk. There are various apotheosis about this. Because i have also read that mohawk may mean the living thinks but i'm bear clan and as a bear clan person. I like bear place people. So i'm going to go with that and if you don't like that everyone can fight. I mean why. Would i fight you. We're not ranking the greatest performers of all time or something by the way the correct answer. Is sammy davis junior. So i'm on board but like is mohawk considered offensive. I think it is a matter of personal preference. How you identify yourself So today i'm going to flip between hauge and mohawk. Okay got it so a long time. Before settlers came to this land. The mohawk people had joined into confederacy with four other nations. These nations were all neighbors. And they were the seneca the oneida the onondaga the cuba and the mohawk the tuscaroras nation would join later in seventeen. Twenty two so this confederacy was and still is called the haudenosaunee. We are sometimes referred to as But that term is like super not preferred. I thought that was a really bad archaic term. I mean i think i read. It meant murderers or something. That right its roots are in french but it isn't entirely clear on what it means. It's most likely. The french interpretation of an indigenous word and i think centering things in the language is always a better move. So i like to use schone which means people of longhouse It's in the language and it's become more commonplace. Okay hold in a show name and your people would have lived in longhouses like back in the day and that's where it all comes from. Yes people longhouse okay and so why did the haudenosaunee all these people come together right okay so the confederacy was formed because there was this time of war and turmoil. The haudenosaunee nations Decided to band together under something called the great law so the great law is about peace. It's about having a healthy body in mind. It's about power harmonious nonviolent unity and righteousness having a good mind that considers justice between nations. Now this is like a superior super super short version of this. This isn't even the coles notes of this. This is like a kohl's kohl's notes of the law so okay well. No one knows what coles notes are anymore. She means wikipedia folks the wikipedia version less than thirty seconds. Okay but i'm going to link to some resources on our website If listeners wanna know more. Because i think it is like super cool to learn about i really love this book by elizabeth docstater. It's called the art of peace it's great primer and she had a great law in really artful beautiful way cool. I will put it on my list of books to buy which gets longer every day. So the haudenosaunee confederacy establishes the foundations for western democracy so our confederacy influence the us constitution benjamin. Franklin george washington studied the great law of peace and adapted it into many principles into their constitution And i would love to get into all of that but then we would be here for six thousand years. That's a story for another day. That's very interesting. Oh it's so fascinating you know really diving into the staff. I have a whole different understanding of things it was. I learned a lot to each nation in the confederacy. Had a role has a role and the mohawks role is they are the keepers of the eastern door. What does that mean exactly. Okay so if you look out the territory of schone the mohawks there the easternmost in the confederacy and their territory would have spanned from upstate. New york to southern quebec and into a bit of eastern ontario. If a guest came into that territory from the east the mohawks would be the ones to agree to assess and figure out their intentions for being in the territory. And you know we've spoken before about contacting how contact traveled from east to west for the most part right so as keepers of the eastern door. Than i'm assuming that the mohawk would be encountering a lot of settlers of the time. Oh yeah so when navigator. I'll just say it in a saucy voice when navigator jacques cartier showed up in fifteen thirty five on his second journey across the atlantic ocean. He heads down the saint lawrence river and he's just looking for the pacific you know. He wants to get to asia. He wants to find gold and riches and colonize over there and he's just you know out doing his thing right. The discovery of the stuff that already exists like for instance. I discovered allergy medication this morning and the internet today so first time ever. I am the person who discovered those things that old song and dance. Yeah yeah that's right. Okay so he lands in what is now montreal. And he sees a village a giant village surrounded by cornfields with about fifty long houses and inhabited by thousands of people. It is also surrounded by palisades. Which are these like. Large pointed stakes. That would have fortified the village. The village is called hoshi lago. Okay so this is a mohawk village. Yes this is like a weird thing but you know that music festival shiga comes from this word believe There is a bit of a dispute about this village. Though in who lived there some say mohawk people. Some say it was the wind add. Some seat was entirely eight. Another group of people that gets called the saint lawrence iroquois and these people just disappear. Okay that seems convenient. Okay you know. It makes it so much easier to claim territory. If the people who live there just poof disappeared until the night zone. Why do people say this is why they say this is because cartier. Returned a few years later and he didn't see the village. Yeah and no settler ever saw it again if a tree falls in the forest and a seller doesn't see it isn't exactly so samuel sean. Payton he Waiting we can do both him and cartier by not heart was a kidnapping like he stole. Indigenous people from the area chief and his sons and seven other indigenous folks in he took them back to europe. Seven mohawk folks took him back to europe as gifts gano. Nothing says i love you like a human. Oh ooh it's so depressed. I know and when he got sick when he was in mohawk territory. They cured him so wait. What was he sick west curvy. We haven't talked about scurvy and so law no right. I genuinely missed it. We used to do every episode. We did was scurvy jokes. And i just. We haven't done that in a long time. Now i know okay. So when he got sick on they gave him. Cdt which is rich in vitamin c. And you know he was like oh awesome. God saved me. Thanks god the mohawks were like well if you wanna call us god. I mean sure. We're fine with that but actually us. So when these explorers don't see osha schlage it becomes this mystery. Some archaeologists also say that there's no evidence of it But i think it was mohawks my opinion again fight me. I'm not prepared to do that. But back to disappearing indigenous people so you can say no was there so that it was free land. What we do know is that many people lived. Farmed traded in this area and not all of them were mohawk. Gone and wendy's were kicking around montreal's in ireland so it makes sense that it would be a meeting. Place does make sense. So let's fast forward a bit after these explorers come through. We start to see more of a colonial presence. French english and dutch are all setting up shop in this quote unquote new world. You got the english with the trading post in albany in upstate. New york and the french up in montreal. Which at the time would have been called ville marie. There are different alliances with different nations so some mohawk trade with the french and some trade with the english the dutch. But today we're going to focus in on montreal. Or as it is known in language to doc okay and so what was going on there. So the french are beginning to establish more of a presence in the area and in the mid sixteen hundreds you had a seminary of the state so piece a roman catholic order and they set up a mission with the purpose of converting indigenous people to follow system. The can i black rabbit. I'm just gonna had in my own now. Okay and so what was who. Who ran this mission lace right yet. So it's run by a group of priests the suspicions and they were made the seniors of the land. So does that mean lowered. Is that what that means. Yes yes it does. So essentially the priests become feudal landlords in charge and able to make decisions about who lives where they could give out land and they could take it away. This is when the land really starts to disappear in sixteen. Hundreds the presets work attempting to convert indigenous people in the area to catholicism in seventeen seventeen king louis the fifteenth who was six at the time by the way he orders the seminary to wait what he was six. He was ordering people around. Actually as. I say that that sounds about right a six year old doing that but someone needed a serious time out. I think we all know that six-year-old. We've known that six year old. What wasn't really him. It was some other fancy french dude. I'm guessing in a poodle wig wearing more makeup than an instagram influence or acting as regent this poodle would have had. He would have had the authority to make decisions for the baby king. Okay god i'm picturing like seventeen hundreds james charles kinda guy so being regent is like the guy in charge until baby king grows up. Yes still think the kid could have used a timeout. But that's just me. It's interesting because i had to look up. James charles. am i right. James charles is a bazillionaire. Oh he's super rich and he has tons of followers much like a region. I'd like how you're trying to sell this. I feel like i'm listening to your like your grade. Twelve like english presentation. no no no no. I don't think he's great. he's hilarious. He's hilarious anywheres a lot of makeup and he sells all his makeup. Okay so back to guys poodle wigs wearing too much makeup in the seventeen hundreds so this poodle across the water who speaks for the king. He says that a nine square mile piece of land near lake of to woods mountain on the north shore of montreal should be set aside for the mohawk people with an additional one and a half by nine mile track. At later this land would be held by the priests entrust for the mohawk people with the caveat if the mohawks left the land would return to the crown and so in the seventeen twenty s the church. They set up the community at lake to woods. The last of the mohawks in montreal are persuaded to leave and relocate to this new but familiar community. It is called on the hillside or ghana's to target okay. So how big was this piece of land. Like how big was going to say. It was about seven and a half times the size of central park. And i don't know if you've ever watched central park but they've pacific park right. It's actually really big. Yeah so the mohawk people left montreal with the priest tag. But why why would they go. You know their land is being encroached upon by settlers all the time there were more and more people coming in and the missionaries were constantly making the mohawk people move from place to place in montreal so when a promise was made that if they moved they wouldn't be bothered anymore. And you know. They were promised that they would be granted ownership of a slant that they could stay live and got us to target was already familiar territory. Mohawk people had been hanging out on that land for a long time. It was part of their hunting territory fishing territory. It was familiar. And you know there were already algonquin nipping people. Just to the west of there and some of the mohawks the mind the priests the you know. Some of them had converted to catholicism right. So it sounds like it's a pretty good solution if everyone keeps up their end of the deal. Yeah yeah. I mean as good as it can be when you're losing all of your land so the move happens and the occasion of moving to ghana tugay is marked by the mohawks with the creation of a welcome belt. This is something we've talked about before on the show it's a type of traditional contract it Physical visual contract that number of indigenous nations use to sort of have agreement with each other. The belt is created to commemorate the move to going to talk. A and miss belt is called the to dog trump them belt. Okay and what was the agreement would dispel. Look like this belt It had eight figures across it with a cross in the middle and two white dogs on either side. The dogs were to signify guards. They the guards the boundary of the land and they were to warn when anyone was interrupting the boundaries of the territory. So this was to be a promise that they would not have to move again that they could just be left alone. Okay and i have a feeling that those dogs had their work cut out for them. Then i like to think that's why my white dog bark so much and so to laundry in my building encroachment encroachment and. I'm like no ridge. That's the neighbors doing laundry. Doing the lord's work yes. These dogs were going to have their work. Cut out for them The encroachment on the territory at to target. It started pretty much right away more about that in a minute. So let's recap here. So settlers come into the montreal area priests begin the work of converting indigenous people to catholicism a baby king over in france grant some land to the mohawk but he puts the church in charge of it and that settlement is called. Ghana's the dog okay so hesitant to ask what happens next the Hauge after being moved so many times settle into their former hunting grounds and they plant crops in a forest in pretty quickly. The priests start to get greedy. They begin to clear the land and sell the timber for church prophet and they also start to sell land to settlers. How are they selling. The land that they promised would be mohawk land. Well you know. Some tale is old as time. It shouldn't have been allowed. It shouldn't have been allowed. No it shouldn't have been it shouldn't have been allowed at least according to the two dogs agreement. They shouldn't have been allowed to do that but they were feudal landlords so they had the poodle king on their side and the poodle. Kinks law was the poodle king's law. They could do anything they wanted. And you know. There was a lot of distractions going on at this time. Right you know. The settlers are having wars all over the place and survival is paramount in a lot of ways. France loses the war and has to seed. It's land to the brits in seventeen sixty three okay so. This is the treaty of paris. Yes after the seven years war so many wars on my gosh so many wars and that has to be complicated for the mohawk like their new white folks in charge and like what are they going to do. It's very weird. Yes and complicated. It was because what happens now is everyone is told to pledge allegiance to the british crown. The mohawks area are told to pledge or your village will be destroyed so the chiefs. They had two six nations. Okay where you're from. Yes and they meet with william negotiator for the brits he tells the mohawks freedom of religion entitled to their lands was guaranteed under king. George the third. If they didn't want to be subjects of the king then they had eighteen months to sell their land. Okay and so. What are the priests doing this time. They must be pretty nervous. Because there's a new you know poodle daddy in town. James charles is now is jo. Say charles or jack charles. Actually because he would be british charlie jack. Hello i'm charlie jack. I'm the new. Yeah i'll let you to work of instagram in years and different colonial powers. That is your territory. So yeah so. Everybody was freaking out. I'm assuming yeah. Yeah i mean the priests. They know that they're in trouble. Because atlantic honest target is technically mohawk land and the mohawks are living there and the suspicions the priest see are just as shitty landlords and so they right to the seminary in france and the tell them about what's going on on the land. Tell me whatever seminary is again. It's a religious school that trains priests okay right. So the seminarian. France transfers the land title to the seminary in montreal then the superior of the order so by the duty. He swears allegiance to the british crown. So it's kind of like ham. Swearing allegiance to the british crown's like covers everybody's asses right so then. The suspicions had control the gawker hauge. They were pretty fed up you know. They had made several attempts to gain back ownership of the land in seventeen ninety four in eighteen to in eighteen eighteen in eighteen. Twenty eight and by eighteen. Fifty one looking yucca. Haga they are. Fed up are fed up with the priest. Treating them like garbage. You know selling maryland and telling the mohawks it's not. There's they're like okay. We there's a new white poodle dude in charge to let send this poodle dude a letter so there were still poodle e then though. It's eighteen fifty one just for visuals thinking mutton chops very sherlock holmes. Like this isn't missing visuals oneal power. You don't have to dress everyone a makeover on. Yeah i know no. They're all where they all had big hair. They all smelled bad in the plush. Someone at visual for me. I'm just a visual person. I need to see it in my my mind. Okay so they send a letter that was based okay and they request for an indian agent to come in be in charge of you know of the territory. Because they're so sick of these priests wait. That's bad that's bad a bad bad for the priests because to have to ask for an indian agent to come and because you suck. That's that's a new level of low. They should be humiliated. But you know it doesn't matter because their request is ignored and that you know that leads to more frustration and the research it they start to put in stricter rules on the people living in ghana target. Oh my gosh. I imagine things would have been so tense and terrible. Yeah i mean you know they keep pushing and pushing and pushing and the colonial powers. They tell the younger hauge that they can leave if they're upset with the citations. Oh hal now oh hell yes. So they've been pushed all over montreal then to coniston tugay where they are told they can stay and never be bothered. And then the pre start selling off that land and when they complain. They're told that they will give them another piece of land. Yes In the eighteen fifties the british crown set up other reserves and urged people to move to them to help ease tension between the priests and the people of ghana target. Some do leave but many do not. Meanwhile the pre sell off land plots they continue to sell off more land plots to more settlers coming into gaza tugay mohawks who object to this to their lands. Being sold their ordered off the land by the church. Wow that's so terrible and exhausting and frankly it's hard to hear so much taking but the thing is no one was forgetting. Many chiefs fought to have new agreements. Recognize the memory of the community. You know it remained the promises and the contracts that were made to them. The so pushes knew that uprisings would keep happening. Nobody was leading a crime so in eighteen sixty a young mohawk man went into the seminary and montreal the preset that they could potentially craft an ally joseph johnson. Kara was a smart kid and learn to read and write in french and fun fact this just like so interesting. He was actually classmates with louis. Oh oh my gosh cool. I know right. We're cool class class of eighteen sixty rule so rules all right okay. So when joseph he gets out of school he goes to work at the seminary at a guy. He's the secretary and there. He learns a lot about what the priests have been up to. He breaks ties with the priests and at twenty two. He becomes a chief in the community. joe says this is amazing. This has more twists than game of thrones. I'm also hoping for a better ending. What a waste of seven years of watching that okay. So joseph joseph so one of the first things that he does. He writes a letter to the governor general describing the hardships. That got us to talk. He talks about how the mohawks cannot secure their lands from the priests. They can't even cut firewood without permission. He tells them that. The mohawks are poor will the priests. They're living large in the eighteen sixties as an act of defiance. Joseph Cuts down a tree without asking the priests for permission. He then marched with forty other community members to the solutions residents and told them that they had eight days to get out. Oh my god he was such a bad ass. I love him. No he's right. He's right new historical cry. I know mine too. I saw him. Okay well we sincerely want to fight all the time which is fine. Just no face punches. Or anybody no punches. At all we'll just we'll just play a game of cards like old maid or something. Okay so what happened so what happens. Eight days to get out then. what so. the priests are terrified right. They get chief. Joseph arrested for threatening them he is released and he sends another petition to the governor general saying from what our fathers of told us we always believed is they believed that. These lands were given in the first instance by the king of france to the seminary for our use and interests now. However we're told that the lands belonged to the seminary and that we live on them and use them only because they permit us to do so. The request was denied and the legal title to the land was given till the sulpice and in eighteen. Sixty seven. ghana's doggy's name is changed to oca- it's an all gong when word which means goldfish. Okay that are there goldfish round there. I don't know. I think it's like a gold colored fish not necessarily Okay okay. I just assumed it was a french word because of the cheese. Yeah you know. I did a bit a looking into the cheese. It's weird the way the holes that research will take you down. The sufficient gave some land to of monks who came to gunnison target inserted making that cheese Okay gotcha so what happened to chief. Joseph right so chief joseph he you know he won't for peace but he likes so many would never see it. He died suddenly at the age of thirty five. Like coty was so young. I know as the years passed. moreland was sold. More settlers moved into the area and there were more changes to the lamp that threaten the mohawk way of life in nineteen eleven. A you railway was proposed to come through the territory which the mohawks opposed and and which they protested including one One joseph joseph gabriel so different joseph that protest ended peacefully when the workers withdrew in one thousand. Nine hundred fifty. Leanne nichols She was achieved daughter. She confronted the people who are trying to build a sawmill there and she actually read the royal proclamation to the to the workers there in nineteen fifty-nine jeffrey gabriel. He raised funds to hire lawyers. This is fifty nine indigenous. People weren't allowed to have lawyers until nineteen fifty one under the indian act right. Okay yeah but. I think the last are really. I mean in my mind. In nineteen fifty-six the saint lawrence seaway comes through and that widens the river and floods lands and not just like takes away the economy of fishing which was so important in that area so this is hundreds of years like every generation essentially and it wasn't just done in a you know in a way that you might think of indigenous protests. People went through the protocols Sent the letter sent the petitions You know there is a paper trail for all of this. I'm just thinking about generation after generation. Someone's going yet. My granddad protested than my aunt protested than this happened to my parents. Now it's happening to me. Oh man this is such an exhausting story. And so what about the seminary. The priests like what happened to them. So they sold off the remaining lots of the land to the municipality of oca- and they laughed in the thirties so they sold it and got hell out of dodge after all of that after all of that and this sets the stage for what comes next in the twentieth century you know as it moves along indigenous people across north america. They hit a tipping point. They are frustrated with all that has been taken and all that is still being taken up until today resistance movements start to amp up in the us. You have alcatraz in sixty nine. You have wounded knee in seventy three in canada. You have the snobby park occupation nineteen seventy four and kinara lou become lake confrontation in nineteen eighty eight in northern alberta. You have the enu and goose bay. Air base occupation also eight. So it's you know we see this built. And that's just a handful of that is just a handful. That is just a handful. So in nineteen ninety when the township of oga proposed to extend a nine hole golf course to make it a full eighteen course and macondo the mohawk said no this course would infringe on a cemetery. A cemetery were many of their ancestors. Were buried including chief. Joseph would opposed the real way in nineteen eleven on march tenth. A group of mohawk centipede peaceful protest site in opposition to the course and a few months later things with her and i guess shots all. I don't know Half a dozen or a dozen teargassed. Next time we look into what happened during nine hundred ninety how it changed that community and impacted indigenous resistance movements across the country.

That's happening right now. But it's also just like yes. I'm also like Bring your tears over here lucrative, but. Amount the amount of unity that I see. Of talking about it all week to my mom family members like squad of the people, there are more people standing in the gaps that aren't black, and that's why it's working right now and I feel that every the the the gaps are being bridged I've never seen anything like my mom's never seen anything like it. A such a beautiful thing to see unity I'm like well down. Look late, but coming you. Get so. Yeah being late like that totally makes sense. This has been the yeah. Keep going psyche. It's been going. It's been going on for so long and you know I mean, but rather late than never honestly and brother late than number and I feel like I was a been so many protests within the last. Couple of weeks. Hours just waving. I remember wave just like this at one point and it was because it was for me. It was for me. I was had fun out down. NS, Bermuda's people this for George boy.

Nothing changes you go through the motions, you know the cops don't get you know they don't. They don't have the same accountability that black people have of his is. It's just crazy to feel a difference like I feel it I was walking with one of my black home. He's during a parade. He was like I. I see I. See it like we just seem. Everybody likes cream, and unlike making some noise, all these protests are peaceful, and they'll let the media like misconstrue was really on. These protests were ago peaceful. The LUGNER's arise such a small percentage of what's going on on such a small percentage. I could talk about this forever and I could cry out grab. Key. Just, talking so much done. Is this your first time. Processing for everybody does mine. Jackie, wasn't it wasn't yours I? Think yes like I. I the first protests that I participated was when I was in college when Trayvon Martin was murdered until like part of our like our black student union. We like protested on campus, and it was like obviously like super peaceful and everything but this is the first time telling you guys like this is the first time that I've ever gone out into my city and protests, and it was just like I think when I don't WanNa see when everything started happening, but because like that's it's been happening have. Word it. Like let's say like memorial. Day, but like I feel like Memorial Day was like the last straw right with George Floyd being murdered, and this is just like the first time. I've. Gone out and just been like in this by in the streets. and. I love new street. Yeah out on the streets. Just like out there and I was just like in the first one. This is the one we all went together. It was like kind of nerve wracking. Because of that point there had been a lot of lake police brutality. Tests so there is like it was like I. WanNa be out there and I'm doing everything I can, but I just like. You that you're sitting at home in your so just anxious. Given all the money I could give outside all the petitions I can sign, and there's always more and there's always more to do, but it was just like I was like i. just need to go and being in the fact that we're also this all happening as you're in a pandemic is also. It's just like what. It's like, and that was like a lot of fear in going out initially. But. It's just like I mean not that it's not is still important, but just it's like I still have to like as like okay. knowing that this is happening. I still have to go and it was honestly the best thing for my mental who to go. Like to be surrounded and last in last week have gone to four different protests. 'CAUSE I was like. I love this I love the screen. And it's just like there was one protest I went to. In Pan Pacific Park in La and it was just it was It was dafter Brianna Taylor birthday, and it was led by black women, and they had like all of these black women speaking, and and it, and it was on a Saturday so like everybody like so many people showed up and it was just like. And it was just like everything I didn't know I needed just being surrounded by so much community, and just people that are dislike I mean like in like in province stuff it's we always started show like I got your back and like really feeling that and being in that space to the point where it doesn't feel like this entire burden is on you because when I was at home, I felt. Felt like I don't like I have to do it all myself right in. It's an but like being there I was like no like there are people that want to help and letting them help and dislike letting them support you like letting them. Carry your way and everything and I was just like it was so beautiful, and then we marched. I was like I've never watched this much in my life. Like ten miles. Week and I'm like Louis. She I. Don't know I. must say this. That's another thing marching and being out like out there. No streets is not for everybody. There's different ways that you can show your solidarity. Yes, stay on with US I. Mean you can donate there so many different? Foundations in fundraisers in different things going on that you can donate to It's some people social media, still a grant like tool. For, everybody has their role in. Don't feel bad for not being out. There might not just be for you like honestly like we have. You have to take that into account.

She was crying I know she's GonNa coin. Y If she's GonNa, start crying when she goes to. The process is well. My Mom's crybaby does where I get my cry Baby Syndrome Brown. That was a really cool experience. I practice for me was when. When we went to the hall of Justice got to just be with a bunch of people I care about and couldn't have asked for better. First protests like I just frustrated me because I'm like I should have been doing these things like for so much longer like there are women's marches. That I was really close to going to when I was afraid. Just 'cause like. Back then women's marches like there was never any videos of police brutality like videos. There's like threads of hundreds of videos of the stuff happening that like we've all been like sharing like crazy, and that was the reason. That's what I that's when I felt the poll. Like the most I've ever fell in my life, because it's like these people are hurting, and now they're getting kickable. They're down by the people that they're upset at like I I've fucked up. Like? COPS when you're under a giant magnifying glasses when you're gonNA, still do this stuff like. Are you serious because there's no accountability and there's no count ability. Why do you have to stop doing it? Well cameras now there there's been cameras and there has just been null accountability fact, the born that we protest stick in stay in these streets like after Giga Dome with this today on like we write some stuff.

If you do decide to protest, just like like reese, avert for anyone that's like. I WanNa go like read up. Read up on what you need to prepare it to protest. Like make sure you're not in like. Just like bright ask lose. Like Fox! Like all your worrisome worrisome sneakers where workers. I it was, it's. It's like it's funny, but it's not funny like. Honestly the only way that I've been able to get through. The past couple of weeks is with like my sense of humor, but it's like I had I had written down some emergency contacts onto piece of paper, and she's like slipped into my bra. Just in case like some shit happened but then I realized I forgot to tell my birds ecotax remind mercy contact. So call from jail yeah. Dallas Hey. Hey, just as an FYI I. I expect you to get my ass out of jail. If that if some she happens just I guess just like. Why don't you now a? Recession, but I mean that nothing. I've gone to like gotten like that, but I have had some friends that have been shot by Lake Rubber Bullet they've been. Really Yeah. Jose appeals not good. Not yet know the rubber bullets like there's people that have lost is. Designed to be shot at the ground. Bounce up in air legs to get you moving like there's one. Point blank like headshots. This isn't Fort Knighton. Come on like who would think that go to Salah protests. You'RE GONNA leave. What like just one? I, that's not cool and. It's not cooled I. Mean I won't WanNa. Lose my in a situation like that I'm GonNa Peaceful Light Peasley protests. I'll just think like I. Come back in. My is gone like no, no I ain't going forward. Something's not adding nothing. Yeah, you need a little bit, accountability. Alabama. Even as we were leaving that I. Protest that I want to. I'm so glad he hasn't been able to go. Mar Like I had to I had to go and get tested for Cova just in case because we were going to be filming like with a small crew at the studio soon and like US protesting kind of had to postpone, because they wanted to be extra safe, and that was like it was a whole thing by Ultimately like everything's all garden workload. We did it, but yeah I tested negative for. Cool rose the bunch. Of Yeah. Courtney honestly thank you for comment like you an Shan when you guys come with me like you know, understand that it meant the world immense the world. It honestly meant the world was telling the Libya Olivia's been out there more days than even I have. She started protests before I did and I. Didn't expect any of you guys to be out there the way that you were you know I just see the love and the support it I feel it all you know you. Guys didn't have to do that. Guys, didn't we've known each other for so long you did and I'm just grateful I'm grateful to know you guys. I'm grateful that we could experience history together you because you guys have seen like even like me. They're like how like I had to go through the only black guy so just for you guys see the standard the gaps for me just to like I guess everything came full circle for me, and probably for you feel I. Don't know I don't know. I like at of course I think the whole thing like this is just. It just felt too important like for me. I mean I was doing everything I could. It was a slow start at first because like I? WanNa be like you know careful, and like that I'm putting out the right information, but at got to a point where I was like I'm signing petitions. I'm donating sharing stuff and it just didn't feel like I was really like putting. Putting my money where my mouth was like I was like this, and then especially just seeing people getting mass arrested, as we're losing people out there like we're GonNa need more protesters, and like I have been happening to buy boxes of like disposable face masks gloves like I can. I can help these people. A wall were also like altogether fighting for this thing so like. Yeah, there was a few days rose texting. He tells cleese like I. WanNa go. Up She definitely did definitely I was actually utilize. This Maybe, this. Yeah. Oh interesting to like thinking about ways to get involved because there's some there's some blaze that like might my friends. They've been volunteering with What's the name of it? They've been volunteering. Basically help people that have been arrested helping them get like due process and stuff, or whatever the term is for it, but it's like that's another way to show up and volunteer with different Lake Lake different groups center. Yeah, it's like the protests and it's like well. What happens. People get arrested in like all of these other things. It's like the people that are at the protesters like handing out snacks like. Joe Plotter, Halden a meal like the thing that I'm. As as we like kind of like move, move through this movement like I. Think also thinking about it as a full on marathon lake. This is it's like there is like urgency right, but there's nothing like this has to happen for a very long time. Yeah, and I don't know the Gola Yeah. The the exact number, but I think it's like when Martin Luther King was assassinated. It was like they rioted for like two six six or ten days, and then they pass like then they pass law, but they had been protesting for like a whole s year before that unity, and so it's like it's like. This this this she needs to go on. Your. Last week was hard. It's like we're GONNA. Have some hard months I'm like no. We gotta like unity, mean, and so it's it's also like taking care of yourself. Like knowing when you're like on social media when you're not on social media, an Stephan Lake taking breaks because it's also I mean. Like it takes a toll and it's like I. Know For me like I was getting really upset in the beginning one thing that was like getting me really upset and frustrated was like how people were sharing. The video of George Floyd and like. I've never watched the video in its entirety because I'm just saying, why are we sharing like? Why are we sharing like this man being murdered? And why are we so easily able to share this man being murdered in this way, and it's just like look at this video. Look at it. Look at Mike. Yes. I understand the need to like. This video needs to be seen. The video needs to exist because without this video like like if you look at the fucking. You look. Like the police reports, and how how they're reporting the shit that's happened like in these incidences and like, and then you have the video like it's so important to have these videos, but then you think about how many videos are there aren't but then also thinking about like how people are just like sharing black bodies being murdered in how desensitized people are too, but they also realize that these people have families like just imagine it being your personal family, the Algren overseeing it on the news like I'll put. Put myself in that position like I. Don't like you know like the eight minutes. I don't need to see it like I know what happened. I've seen like. I know how the how the end result is would imagine his family all like on the news like everywhere like that sick. That is sick. That is sick. It's not okay I can't watch holding I seen enough of it. I've seen the wrestling part issues like I let it go like I I'm the type of person that likes to wash by. On facebook, but as soon as I see somebody like stomping somebody I'm like oh? GotTa go gotTA GET OUTTA here. That's not lake. He looked at helm as less than in the show. It show He. He was a bit What's the officer's name? Shane Day? Yeah up here. He saw himself up here. Like George Lloyd down here as work together to right I heard that they were like security guards together yes ob. That how? After that nobody could erode leg. Shonda rhimes couldn't wrote a better plot. The you you not. I mean like she could not have. That is next level next level to do that to someone that you know as well like I'm I'm not saying you should do it at all. That's I'll do not condone violence, but to someone that you know I. Don't care if you got has had like a A. Ball out or whatever I don't have. A lot of fall announced with people. I'll probably have some more, but I don't think to kill him. Home. No mercy at all, and there's people that I'll give mercy right now are asking lake. Asking for mercy and young you're not you're not given it for some in the same thing keeps happening like it is unfortunate that the looting and the rioting is happening, but sometimes it takes stuff like that Thanks to China. Venice I'm not as I, don't supported I. Don't condone that I. don't but it's a part of the revolution. It's like it's in. It's a lot of up. People taking advantage of this movement whether they are with him Oh, heartedly or When they resume. Looters are looting. Exude testers are protesting. The amount of people that are protesters, thousands Adele thousands of protesters there, not hundreds of looters. Events like that. They're not the the media got me. If none at. All is. Woman. On all know what's happening. Up Jeez. Sorry Combat! Because if the whole pre protests, even we were at our like that biggest one in Hollywood. Is All those people decided to? They would take down entire city and. Also. Want. Me fucking burn at all fucking. Thing honestly this is the thing that's not what we want. And then he own making an anybody that's making. Everybody is building like the up. The looting outweighs the the peaceful protests. You are on the wrong side still like focus on the things.

I've making up songs with my friends, though like in our group chat at it's like. Come on look. What is always the one who is the verse? I just I just came up with some y'All motherfuckers as silent. I would never gonNA work together again. You mother Fuckers A to Fucking Silent Ellen evident together again and it's like ooh! Silence the silence also. That he is. In life brought violence, and it's like there are people that have haven't said. And it's like. I. I'm seeing it and I'm like, do not ever you? Like is there. It's like people that and it's usually people that always have something to say, but their silence just like punched you in the like the right here on his busted. Silence Definitely Islands. Got The most say usually always want line kin- your vitamin behind this 'cause that calls I'm going to call them that calls. All of this and all of that, but right now you. Mo. Thank you learn. This thing and my thing is like. Listen and learn us one thing, but like has something to say you usually have something to say, and then like start the dialogue the dialogue to start the anytime dialogue and we'll see that's the thing. Scary part is because people don't WanNa look racist, and that's understandable, so they try not to stay in just like the dialogue cast star in. I mean just take your words live. I don't know I'm asking some people to jump in and just like. Well, no I mean. It's also like just having a good support system of people that you can trust to. Mike under pursued when I first started working here, I was a very different person like. You is that Ki- like I? It's not like I. Went from one side of the spectrum to the other, but like I'm definitely grown a lot in terms of like. What hundred percent one hundred awareness! And, starts with us. Working together to you know what I mean like Courtney a we all all the we can even from different places and like I'm sure having me as a black person in the cast. You know we had to do a lot. They had to learn a lot about what it is for me. What I go through everything whether it was spoken about her unspoken, it was definitely a lot of like learning on both instill and how to work together. Yeah, because it's like we are. We are different types of people I will say that it comes with some you know. It comes with heavy hearts sometimes. Oppressed oppression and just a whole bunch out that people just don't. Don't see like we really deal with those things I've lived at you know working at smart of see certain things. Built that I just could not put my finger on land. Yeah, you know like and then even things that I would witness happening to you from other certain people in the offing like Ugh I. Don't even like that like that. Yeah, it's just levels to it not like I was telling Libya other like yell at. There's like levels to like a precious as mile. Hell tree something, and how I react to something is how another black man living in Alabama reacts to this. There's like certain privileges that I have you know I have to utilize and I have to understand my influence of who I am where I come from and also put myself in someone else's shoes be like Yo. You are me like you know like you look like me. This can happen. You happen to me that it puts. You gotTA stand in the gaffer Yo people at the same time, and that's what I've been trying to do. Because like at the you know, there's been protests for years never felt lead enough to go out like after the first day when the riots and everything to lose all that happened for me, even WanNa go outside after that like it's Kinda crazy, but in is. That was my first time going out you know and I. I just felt. Let's do it. I was like I need to be out there with my people. I need to be out there with my people like I know my people aren't. They're out there like Blake Lou like all the I need to be out there with the protesters that is like the that's the bigger part. That's the bigger picture, yeah? That's the real stop everytime Kinda. Have Conversations people who disagree of the like I realize pretty quickly like a lot of my followers on instagram twitter sink like similar to me or the ones that don't are already being handled by the community. So I the in my replies. You say. We gotta stay out. This is that they have to like I mean as long as we have the dialogue dialogue. We could. We should not join in the conversation more than what we say on our posts. Because all we're doing is just it's already said we sell what we said we sell said I. Don't need so you know. I don't improving the followers. No, it's just like you're you already stand where you stand? Like that's the best thing you can do unless you start arguing before you know it, you say something hateful. WanNa. Come yeah, the people start coming for you, and then there's like deeper than that. And then they think that you hate them, and it's just not what it's about. What rap he could! Have Fallen into the trap maybe. I'm not super proud of good Jackie Koto. We're going to have a conversation after this because we are not respondents anymore. Those Communists, two thousand twenty, no more communists until somebody say some bullshit all life on twitter instagram. All, all of them. Yeah the. FACEBOOK that's after I quickly realized like instagram and twitter was like okay. That's handled. I realize like I have a much better chance of reaching to people close to me, who think differently than me so I was riding a Lotta time posting. But I on facebook man so when I started going on I was like Oh really toxic play. Bass look is worth you will get stuck in facebook for. Burr. I'll be reading the communist so I. do read the comments be laughing and sometimes I'll find myself right so like. I. said. Delete delete delete delete. Delete delete. One of what's the point? What's the point? We obviously disagreed and there's nothing I can say to make you feel any different. If you don't feel different, now is still going to take a minute for you to come around, but all I can continue to say black lives matter, so you hear it and so that annoys you a little bit I wanted to you been annoying. You should probably get checked out because that's not. It is not saying all lives matter. We just want you to understand that black lives matter. Great Mind I think there is something to be said though for like. I'm like I'm not trying to argue with like still trying to be like PC I don't WanNa I. Don't WanNa. Say All trip. Supporters feel a certain type of way but lake. Let's say let's say I don't know hypothetically. Let's say. Abbey trump supporters are in line with the very specific ideologies like of the party right, but it's like okay like they're set. You know what I mean for the most part like it's GonNa take a lot to make change there, but I might. My focus was on the people that are just kind of indifferent like well the fact that he was murdered. Bad Bad I'm like there's no. There's no way. What is the? But like what is? Why are we talking about property the like those? Yeah, that's my. That's my. That's my more model that I'm. The site shut up. My Dad. My Dad always said you know whenever somebody says, but they're taking away. They said before. But. It's just like you don't like me like that. Then there's China that no, what is like, but I can't really like. There's been so much good information coming through on people's instagram stories in on twitter stuff there is a term for like what people say. Yes, year thing you said, but also like just. There's a term and I'm sure. She races off the top. Honestly Apple. ASSHOLE. Asshole Islam's. Conversations I've gotten into on facebook. I am not proud of them like not completely. Crazy really easy. To follow a few people, and it's just like I'm not usually wanted to do that, but I. Just if we'd all about to argue issue I, I look at what you post I'm probably not going to respond. I'M NOT GONNA say if it doesn't match up link up with what I'm saying right now I'm just I don't need to I. Don't even need to look at it and I'm not gonNA argue with you. There's no need for me to argue you are where you are. I'm where I'm at, but I'm also just going to. Move Myself Out of the picture, so that young upset myself at the stress muscle out not another to take care of our mental health in this time to yeah, and that's something that I've always struggled with, but I remember the first day. This started like when everything starts, get crazy. I remember Alabi. You know on the phone talking to a friend about something then I would like start Washington news or like start looking at post, and I will cry, and then by myself out of a you know like trying to get out of solved call my friends laugh a little bit, and then come back in and just like. Start to cry again almost like a big emotional roller coaster and I feel like we're all going through, and it doesn't matter if you're black yellow Red Brown purple linebarger like we are off, fill in all of this right now like I me. Black people have the energy for a minute. Wherever like we were born into this energy, but like the I can only imagine how y'all feel right now and I know y'all WanNa feel racist, and like you insist so many level so all of this y'all have a lot of times. You're not even use the word racist right, but see you now get our minds across. It's like levels. Like we can't wait to use the where honestly and I'm just trying to even educate myself how I can do things better and relies a lot of my fan base a lot of base because the smash is why so like I have to watch how I speak because I. Don't WanNa start going off because they don't disagree with me but I also like I, also don't want to just let people say crazy, shit, omarosa pages. You know who but I also can't say anything because if I say something I'm GonNa I'm GonNa? Be Mean and I want to educate. All I can do is just by keeping all posted and just. Stand not having anything to say after the fact, I think there's ago a kind of like a a burden to that. There's a I mean. There's the burden of like already being black like there's everything that you're born into generation Lee right, but it's also like a lot of my friends. Who mean well like in this is like that's. It's like they mean well, but they're like. What can I do? What can I do and I'm like that's not. That's not my role in like. and. Show, you want, but it's like you hold me that about. The fact that you're upset now I have to walk you through. Said, about the ad is affecting me like and it's and it's like an an all time. Like is so different to. It's like not all black people are saying. We're not all responding to this the same way. Like some people want you to check in with them and they will. They didn't say sheets me like we're not friends. It's like, and then there's people like no checking on me like I literally had to my friends. I'm like. Please stop contacting me Oh. I did I was like I know I saw that, but yeah good because for me, I'm like the consent Kazan. I I know myself immediately. I Mike I'm okay, and I'm trying to make them feel okay when I'm not. Ended Langley me telling them like I'm okay is for them, and it's not for me, so I i. just stop talking to people. Go, Mia, what I'm going through and then at I. Let you know what I need when I need it and asking for that type of help. Olivia hit me up and then a few other people hit me up and also all men people really care right now. The actually give up. And then it got so point where war people started hitting me on my white friends, and I started kind of building a certain way, though have me a day in and day on I was like hold on, let me take. Take a step. They are actually showing that they care. Utah and I had to like take a step outside of myself. Because I started to build, some type won't jaw. Hit me up this much I mean this is how I always feel like. They're coming into their starting to understand a lot more so like all I can do is just meet them and just. Just be like y'all like you I really means the world to me I kept telling a means the world that you are actually seeing like. Did it feel weird up Earth's one hundred percent, but I had to like step outside of myself a mile understanding and be like this is what they understand now. Yeah, I mean. Yeah, from my perspective like I felt semi aware. Aware that reaching out to you, Keith because like something about the way our texting I was like okay. I. Like I can see like this may be seems weird. Like I have seen posts of of of texting like Oh checking on your people like checking who runs color like and I did see that, unless yeah, doing check on my friends, but I also like. I can understand. That feels a little uncomfortable that you're. Out like that, but yeah. It's just like it's all about like. Coming saying that was a great as a great way to jake coming to an understanding. I'm understanding where you are. You're understanding where I'm a yeah. I mean like I can't battle everything. This is not what I need to battle. That's that's not the battle. Right, yeah! You asked me if I'm okay. which I do like still agree like I felt like how Jacky felt at first, but I want another way with a, but like her way of billy is still bucking ballot because I have to say reaction, we excite I'll have very specific needs like like. Everyone has specific needs all the time, All GonNa be responding to things. The same way like the way. Some of my friends have supported me. They've just been like they've sent me like money on mother like. Eat today and under just like you're right because I was skipping meals. I kept forgetting to eat like I. I have no appetite. Yeah, no food in my house. I wasn't taking care of myself and it's like small stuff like that or dislike one. There was a couple of days where my friends like. I had we'd already been like quarantine in life, we'd been like super conscious about like the virus and stuff, but they dislike picked me out for my house, and this is when the curfews were come were together and we're going to go to a protest. We didn't end up going, but then I spent the night with them like at their place. They like made me dinner. They made me breakfast and like we just like did stupid like we played like Horsh Horseshoe. Back. Just like being. Just like can support us. Thank! We played like just. and. It's just. You can be supported in different ways. I really appreciate I really like even though I might. Please don't like text me, 'cause I'm already. But just the way my friends have shown up for me like I appreciate at I, recognize it to in like there was one day when I was crying. It's just like kids. I was like really. I was so sad because I'm like damn like. My support system is so strong. And, I was just like damn like the fact that not everyone has the same type of support system right now is just like it like made my heart her just like the. Because my my my my people got me like I. Know My don't talk. Talk to me I'll hitch. And like. We have. Great thing not everybody has that and also recognizing that and Jackie I have a question was that? Of You, said you money for food because I'm hungry, right? I was like I'm down to make some new friends up quarantine if they look out for you hungry. I'm a I like the other menus for real. I'm not I'm displaying. Do not send me a friend. That's in a dollar menu and all of that expense. That's been. This quarantine has made things so much harder like normally your friends will be able to take you to a meal or something, but also I feel like the quarantine kind of helped away because Oh are working. People are yes going on. As located. If the quarantine wasn't going on. People will be at work. I had to I'll I. Don't think I. would if I had something to do, I don't think I would have gone out there. You know what I mean. The fact that we have been cooped in our houses were so long. Everybody is able to see like you know like the way that they see it now. You know they don't have anything to. Do. You know that's exactly why because people are worth? They're not gonNA. Stop making money to go to go protest. They're not. That's exactly why the like Kobe. Although is killed. Some people in like a lot. Of Of people know although it has been somewhat of a like a I don't know I opened inexperience for so many different people is weird like this I don't want to call it a blessing because it's not been a blessing for so many people, but it's definitely been a sort of a blessing other people this is, it's like finding a light within his jaw. 'cause all of this thousands when he is best something like dishes. It's been crazy. You don't know what's happening next y'all aliens are definitely to comment. Show out show up at Shell out and I'm sure the right side. That's all I'm trying to. Keith League Foam. Kobe. Chaim all? Stepped Up, you dude! It's like people. Like Oh my God Dude I. Tell You so keen star like he was at used frustrating me. I. Don't care I'm. We'll talk a little bit smack on Chemo Right now go! Rhino. He's yeah, he's a drop. As a drama alert, he's had a lot of controversy especially lately. Ethan Klein eight three to like really went in on him, and it's been like so much drama between them to and like he wasn't sure. His audience is probably little racist, but he wasn't like posting a lot of like helpful stuff online at all. It was very like. TMZ THIS COP? Cop just this did is really frustrating and then one day. He's like guys I decided that I'm going to apply every tweet of H. Three h threes with a horse so that he becomes a better person in stops hating me like that was his sweetened, like I literally replied with the picture of Courtney Kardashian being like Kim, those people that are dying. Like La- that's that's one of those times. frustrate frustrating using their platform. Wrong you're. Definitely like you know I like to post memes and I like to make lighter situations with humor, serious situations with humor you not, but it's it's it's A. Dell is definitely a level of respect that comes with it and You know what I mean. It's not a joke. It's not a joke I mean. There can be life found within a week and lap at certain things, but this is not a Jew man. Like I. Don't know who that person is but i. hope that he can. Understand that it's a serious issue. You know whoever it is I. Don't smoke I. Don't like all that drama stuff. I put on gloves non-playing. Like I'm just. Like whoever you are out there like me, have some research. A little, a little better, okay, go about it for show much lower brother whoever you are. But yeah that horse tweet I just like dude. Kumla who cares. People are dying, but that was what made me so I think i. felt the most joy that day was like when we were out in the crowd and Jackie. You're like goofing around and you're making Keith Shane Laugh so hard. I can't tell you I. can't even remember the last time I heard that in. Shane laughing together. Damn apartment for months. Olivia's dog. That was my first time petting a dog and four months. That was the best. That was the Best Day of twenty twenty. One hundred. And police brutality. Family. Talk about how? We liked to find like light in like humor within things like we're not laughing at the circumstances at hand at certain things happen I was talking about. Yellow? When we were protests numbers day, the first day I went out there. Somebody tripped almost Phil. I'm GonNa, Laugh, you know. I'm and. I'M GONNA laugh I'M GONNA. Laugh at US and I'M GONNA.

Uh black people like fried chicken. I'm like don't don't you. Who the fuck out here like. Nah no that's fucking the dumbest shit. I don't know exactly if somebody says something like well don't you think. How do you guys feel about like a totally in the late nineties. The taco bell dog was made racist. Did you guessed that was racist. I don't even know about mexico. That's true when now. I get it as a kid is talk about dog. Pablo taco bell. One of the biggest mascots in the nineties. Is the little chihuahua. Which is a dog mexico as you know taco bell right. Yeah people kind of lost their mind for a little bit like it was mostly like the last movement that was pushing this narrative that the taco bell dog was racists. Which i don't really get it'd be a little racist if maybe it wasn't a talk like a dog from mexico. It's literally a mexican dog and he just said bill. I was gonna go to choose from chihuahua mexico so yeah i would assume mexican don a. That's why the city is called. She wa or i think that's why the dog is called she walla city after dog the dog or unless the dog founded the city. Like maybe like it was the same story where the eagle found a snake by in this one city. The dog found this name of founder. Stake chihuahua dog found the snake. Do you know about that. That legend chica. He worked any anything of. Can't see you at all. And your mike stir i we live. Now we've been live. Yeah has completely useless. Yeah i know right. Go for yeah. Welcome to the podcast guys. We're here with chica. Unfortunately she's not available right now due to some wifi issues but finds news. When we put off the episode. Paul weber. Yeah i kept calling him weber way before one stuck in my head of the dictionary just flow. Does it does. I'm putting her back. It does sound like last name.

Well guess we're recording like this and then oh well anyways. I didn't even know that it left. Okay maybe i can only see a banana. We're good now. I saw for like a second in one way. Oh well well then. Better wifi friend i. I'm in the process of actually. I've been on the phone with verizon. My mom's been like on the edge of your seat like tap me bitch and i'm like moms. Stop calling me a bitch on the phone with the rising wrestling. Let me talk to this focus. Demo gets like that anytime she hears me on the phone with a customer service. She she which like the thirst of like just hand them over just given given a million. No let me fucking hand. i'm an adult. Let me handle this. Move out or not like this. Yeah but actually. I'm buying a new router fucking in two hundred router. And then we're going to upgrade the internet that way. We don't have any more issues like we did on. The last episode sounded before that. Yeah and the one before that probably this one conspired party started. No right okay. We're good. yeah what. We're talking about tickets. He was fried. Chicken is only idea that guy youth that you assume at the molly. Because i'm mexican. no. I i witnessed it but your mind was like this motherfuckers eating a somali. If you look at an angle it looks like brad. I guess so. I guess yeah. So why are you people chickens. All we'll actually eighteen six gooding. I would take a class on that of the history of fried chicken chicken. Fuck yeah you can like that. Yeah i would love to take the classroom. Fried chicken like like school. No i mean like a look at my room you can afford to go to. I can barely afford the community. College down the street like nah. No harry causes. They're probably the price for going to college. Has gone up. If i would've known that units were going to be. I think it's like last check. They were like fifty six dollars a unit down at palomar community college. When i first went to college they were twenty five dollars a unit. If i would've known that i would definitely gone to college. Oh you would've finished. I would miss fuck out knowing that how you how much cheaper would have been. Yeah i would've finished out of principle of not paying more. Well you know what. I never even tried going to college. So we'll get to you. Wait not even. You didn't even try going into like a class or you don't know nothing now. I was horrible at school so i was horrible at school. And the education system in this country garbage. So i've been college was out of the college was really going to do anything for media crack unless i decided to become a teacher. Adopter assumptions then. I need a college. But i never felt like there was anything in it for me. You know i was. How good i'm doing did you. Did you go to like community college or did you actually go to state college her half the schools in illinois school too expensive so i left announced me by two half years. Then i went to University illinois chicago. I graduated from there. I went to school in minnesota. Now fear and a half nine wheel kit appear so have. I think i'm good for a bit. Yeah minnesota talking for do all. The people sound like they do in the cartoon like in like. Yeah 'cause did. That's where isn't that. Isn't that where bobby's world. That's where the threes from bobby's mom. Yeah his mom was from minnesota in like princeton world Anime is like it was a cartoon. She gives the room right now with. What's on the enemy. So she was probably all west to me. I can't rightly animate animation cartoons on the same bag. So i'm no so you clearly don't watch any cartoons have recess of the kid rugrats. Did you just start watching like pixar movies for the first time ever is just what the even cry. What's up up. I was crying. Like i found out. My the love of my life was was getting like like face fought for my best friend like it was just everywhere. I thought you were gonna say like my life. I look the other way i would. It's called misdirection. comedy ball. shit sucks island. You guys other people on social media for me not crying. Because i think what happened was that i watched the movie and everybody was like in my head telling me you better cripe so then. Like my body overreacted. Phobe started yeah. She just didn't drink water for seventy two hours before she watched the movie. But i felt like i could cry and then my was just like not today. Did i have to be careful. Like when i go to disneyland. Sometimes because they play that song again the streets like when you're walking in and a little like as soon as possible my fucking tears coming down my i like if i'm a native. They just saw a sheriff's on the side of the road. Well good thing that you're probably not going to go to this goose. I went to disneyland at the best time right before all this stuff hit like literally i should have gone. I know we invite you should come. I never saw star land dude. Okay as do it was just see it now. i would. That would actually governor governor Disney is presenting. Actually disney is presenting information. from their orlando parks governor newsom to try to come up with a plan to reopen. The parks eventually But they're showing data's far as how they're able to keep things clean and keep covid from happening whilst having people in the park. Has there been house. Florida doing cases though for my understanding at least disneyland. they're not like skyrocketing. I'm sure there's one or two cases that which is still bad. I'm not saying it's good. Yeah we no cases way if one or two cases will yeah like. I said saying i beat you up a little bit not gathering information though they still have to like you know. Figure it out. Obviously i guess but i- dentist hundred waiting for that check. Oh i know. I think that don't even get me started because that like gets me so mad that like like on an employment and i got off of unemployment but like they let people go for like weeks on end and still haven't come up with the resolution as far as like what they're doing right now and the the crazy part to me is like they're pausing it because of the elections like if anything they should do it before to like just get some help so many people that moved at la because they'd have no income coming in or or way significantly less income to be able to cover their bills like if dude elliott is going to suffer for a long time after every big cities every big city. It's just going to have homeless people everywhere. Oh that's me and it's just it's going to be bad long enough near so there's an increase in homeless people if their infrastructure savings napoli all the macy's words close on those buildings are empty. Should make like a free housing for everyone you know. Maybe they'll do something shelter thing i think we had. We had a guy in the podcast. He's a rapper but he hasn't had the income because of all this. I mean as far as the episode episode happened and he was going to be up program through goodwill. So i think help you get housing or something like that right and that program felt through just because of some dumb thing that people couldn't agree people actually making it happen. Agreed on what happens with everything like that and we ended up actually not helping people because they've got the thing by were divided. Not but unemployment went away. People aren't getting money anymore. It's because some bullshit super disagreement of something. It's just things like that so as long as the people making those decisions are comfortable. They're not gonna care about the restrooms bonding all this help than it has been people like people don't need a feed every day like they don't to their ill because you know the affect them and that's the thing that's always really people always have to the most vulnerable. People suffer the most people of color low income a combination of factors suffer. The most and their voices are heard the lease so until like stars like more people are more affected by then. I'll be like okay. Hey we to pay attention since like we can't drive through angeles so many homeless people like stuff like that. Okay but then. The the thing is that like even before the You know cities were doing things about homelessness. They weren't doing resources out. There were putting spikes places. That homeless people wouldn't hang out you know like like our society is not centered on having a having a everyone having a senator prophet for just a few people. Yeah so it's just a. I don't know i don't know what the fuck we're talking about right now on the down kidding so we're talking about interesting by before we started recording by the way these spot guys is. We have a shock. Were with us and my partner in crime franco here so while you my partner in crime was to say that those weird weird it's true i mean with all the crimes were commit. I should be. I should want to not listening. Thank you for being with us. Thank you feeling while we had you. In one of our one of our first quarantine episodes. Yeah martin warranty and sadly it's been like seven months now. I thought it'd be over for share by by now i was way round. I was too. I really didn't know what was going to happen. We're gonna go the can we say it's not good above. Why can't always. I know it on the news in terms of covert started actually started working more so i got another job and i think they expect him application songs like working more. So it's kinda. I went like into kobe. United will work with complications survived. Some did not mind ratty was like but then it came down or time and now it's like okay months no other people. They've had a different experience. So i don't try to represent anyone else kobe's around saying a lot of people are don't have any income you know. Yeah you know. A lot of people are about to get out of their homes and stuff like that. Luckily i mean. Luckily you you know you were able to actually start working more. I'm fucking working more. Franks working more. I'm working in general so stuck it. Everyone kidding not no. You know what i said this before. I've been really fortunate in force in during this whole time so like actually like you did a lot for me to have the time away from things and then to come back into the workforce but it's still like super nerve wracking. I'm a high risk patient. I have a undermining conditions. And it's honestly there's some days where like. I get like a runny nose and his scares the shit out of me you know. Yeah i know. I know but you know it's just one of those things where like stuck sometimes like the other day we had a co worker. That just wasn't feeling good in general and ended up getting sent home because they were just just in case and everyone wants to like off. Yeah for. I'm not going for like an hour. I was like fuck. I really hope. That's not the case. Because then all no. He worked with patients. So that's great that's must be. I couldn't even imagine what that's like like this must be crazy. I think people. I've seen like different reactions for certain people. There's some people who are very why they have no takeout. Haven't gone out haven't seen family like they really went all the way with some people who are just like after week or to this fine. I can just do whatever had to wear masks. There's like those two extremes for me. I felt like i was early on. We really didn't know what was going on. I know how bad it was in the first patient i have the family decides take him also life support so he passed away with forty five minutes of my gosh. Then the next time you had a guy who was in the unit for like most fifty days and he survived. He wants to go home. So i think it's like being afraid as normal but i think that's a normal thing but i think panicking to an extent of where is not good cause panic doesn't really help anything you know. Maybe a take your prayers taking precautions. That i don't think to Over a mental health is also a thing to aside from. Fear being a bike Then it's hard though like i'm not going. I had an issue like a month or was it's been like two two months almost three months now with some some health issues and it scared the shit out of me and like since then i've been trying to cope with that and cove and like for me. It's like like it can be bad. Sometimes i'm not gonna lie were and and that's the hard part is trying to like. Keep yourself balanced enough to not. I think you're right like to not be so afraid and just kind of keep going but it's you know for me as i. It's hard for me. So i can imagine well for others. It's probably just as hard. Yeah i think the thing when the overhead now you go nelson ask. Are you guys able to if we needed to go. It's like a provider like they do like some telehealth appointment. Anson yeah i i do. Now i when i i got laid off at the beginning of like maybe like three weeks into the pandemic so i was a little like that worth. It was yeah it was we were i remember. I was in the store where we had to like. Start closing the door and not letting people in like for three weeks and it. It was pretty early on. It wasn't like i didn't go on for too long before they laid off. But like i remember. The whole thing was fucking. We weird's like the door. Tattoo like how people come to a closed door then. Tell them to back away. Open the door and like try to help them without like you know being too close to them. That was very strange But yeah i got laid off. They I was worried because nobody really teaches you how to manage your insurance right. And so i didn't know that i would. I should have signed up for cobra. Which if you don't know what that is. It's basically when you get laid off. It helps you to extend the current coverage that you have. At least until medicare medicaid can can take over. And i didn't know to do that. And i was gonna lose my insurance before. I was gonna go ahead and get insurance through the state and i was really worried for a little while because i do have Underlining conditions that. I have to take medication for it. I'm like okay. What am i gonna do And then luckily i. You know through unemployment in the process is so terrible for that like there's no one you can talk to. You have to wait and talk to machine or you have to go and apply online and I know people that still are waiting to get their unemployment like almost two three months out from applying like i got really lucky but everything got blake went smoothly. But there's so many people that are backed up on that and that have not been able to get help. Yeah it's it's terrible. How's your ass. Pablo with the had to say earlier. Is that when it started everyone. It seemed like it seemed like everyone was very scared and think a lot of a lot of it was because we're seeing all the countries getting bad like i remember before it was before it was even like then thing here like italy was fought dot is so bad you know. So we're like oh shit like what's gonna happen here. I mean it's been bonkers and then just everything started happening. Riots and stuff you know everything when a blacklivesmatter started broadcasting stuff just everything that was coming to light everything that was that was. That was happening. Was like what the fuck is happening. You know it was crazy Was that whole thing thing. About like ho- black people can't get cova from my team separate people. I think this is what happened. Was like okay. So italy and a lot of places in europe were all getting co. They're going. they're looking at like africa. The continent unlike. Oh there's very few cases here right that went. There are some type of immunity or something going on. That will ask him people that they weren't getting kovin so people were running with but then of course now within like a month or a few weeks afterwards a lot of light black man or like people of color that we're the ones that are most affected even in my own unit. We had a four or five patients. Kobe and then most of them were black. Men right yeah. I mean like we were saying earlier. The the thing is the focusing them memory highest shit. What the fuck had to do with black people get in kobe. Yeah there was like a black read. Were really really affected by it. It was crazy like door. Like people of color are the ones that got in. Most places like wisconsin which is one of the widest the white stage. They have a small black population. This like seventy percent of the cases were black or mostly black people limbaugh men so it was very so you definitely saw that. You'll see a lot of minorities. Coming in wisconsin. So why that clinton austin's the black guy commodity for the listeners. Who quinton alston hours. You've been against this podcast. Hilo side break griffin. Made me laugh way to just. Because i i love quentin death ice from the from the short time that he lived here in marietta. Fun of his lack of black accent knows precedents. But i'm gonna quinn and thought you would know. Now he's in coup because he could do all the mexican communist what. He's only have blocks spectator very true. I was his half black half white. But i think a better description is he's half black. Have ginger yeah. That's definitely a. He looks like the basketball player. Used to play for the clippers blake griffin. That's the yeah. He looks at the griffin if he never decided to do to basketball and rose shape. He's yeah he's just tiny tiny man. Like like i would. I think it'd be funny because like if he did put on his. I haven't seen him in a long time. And i missed him so i have to do all on my the out from him because i'd never seen anywhere. We'll get him back in the podcast. Fine chico's now though that's true my bad my bad it's about jacob what the fuck is wrong my laptop it's about chico. What is that dance. Chico what is. I don't know you guys were talking about me so have to do a little something. Let's fair crowd. You've been hitting. Mike's how do you feel hitting my accent. Cove is like election wasn't bad. I think the one i did was. He didn't have a outside mind like pan pacific park. He has the outdoors. What is very easiest. Also distance unlock people. Have the lysol. And people have their laws. They weren't has their masks in hampton tyzzer. Those actually been pretty good There's some is that i am i. I went to mike. And then i just walked up peaking I'm not gonna. They're not following. The proper guidelines are good. And then it's like you know people get hired people get drunk and then you know everyone's breathing on everyone so yeah but you just call on me like right when i walked in a bar. Throw this mike for your late. Joe i if i went to a mike and someone got drunk and tried to get too close. I might like just like punch him in the throat. Like i'm surviving this shit. Like taking me out diabetes. We'll take does. But i think people will try their best to where like people come outside and they rotate in. You know there their turn and you know they go outside and they come in anyway but then there's other times it's like what i'm trying to stay home. You know it's fun we can get a job. Ultra had mike in his backyard. So that was cool. So repacked okay. Remember me. I've been in and out of the kobe unit since since march now almost november so to me. I'm like now just part of my routine as part of a day. Where i'm not as afraid. Yeah kind of take precautions. On when i can but you know so that's the crazy per like i feel like i've been going out a little bit and i tried to like anything i do. Try and make sure it's going to be social distance or like it's going to be far away where i know a lot. Not a lot of people are going to be there and it's fun until like a lot of people show up and then it's like oh shit like i feel like sometimes you get trapped in certain situations where you didn't think there was as many people in it can be you know that makes it difficult. Sometimes yeah a friend of mine had a just a small get together with just close friends rights and those are the first time i went out anywhere like that. You know like to socialize shit but not only stayed for like an hour kind of out about it. And i loved you guys. I know frank has been traveling a lot. Yeah i actually. When i got laid off i was like okay. I can't. i'm not the kind of person that can just sit around and do nothing. Like i can only do so much of that before. I get really bored and so i was like you know what i'm gonna come or you know the quarantine a better person that was like the first thing i said to myself like i need to reevaluate a lot of things in my life and so since then. I've just been doing a lot of things that i haven't given myself permission to do like. I think i was really wrapped up in like the journey of stand up and kinda using it as a crutch to not like explore myself as a person and i've kinda like unconnected all that so like traveling to places i've never been before i haven't done a lot of traveling in my own state still. I said you know what time to see all the stuff i wanted to see and then i've gotten a lot of opportunities from those travels which you know. I was never a big advocate of like. Put it out there. It'll just show up but it's kinda true like if you people see that you're open to opportunity They're willing to give you their opportunity to do whatever they need. And so it's kind of helped me out a lot to really figure out like more. What the next steps in my life are. I felt that those those small setback practice it for like an hour before the podcast. I live vicariously through frank. Lyceum all expands the equipment and editing. Because he's a mobile shit stop compliment because he's not shut up about it. I can't wait to go out to do because my thing haven't traveled more than i'd say. Eighty five miles by myself trying to like three or four days off to just try to drive somewhere by myself and do sparse uconn. Yeah chica. that's going on an adventure. She's by yourself what. I'm trying to collaborate to get out of here. Pablo by yourself. Don't hide it in the trunk. It'll be like she's buyers will to be. I'll sneak out. She wants to see me. Just like she'll go to like i'll sneak. Stop hard and i will get out because i also wanna go on the adventure trip posts. Apparently no honestly. I know she left me in here. For four day is it does take. It does take a lot of work to like actually document all that shit like it kind of in some ways. It kind of sucks. Because like sometimes i'll be there like block. I just want to enjoy this moment instead of being there. But you learn like the little tricks of like how to like create the content or even like what i've that's made it easy for me is like just do the normal content that i would as far as like trying to show people the experience like without trying to put extra effort into it and then at the end i just look at it all and then try to put it together into a story and so far. That's been doing really well for me to that. I'm not putting the edit in front of the actual adventure but seriously though we should go somewhere should all take a road trip. I'd be down. Where are we talking about this Remember we talked about doing hiding she trunk while we go on a road trip with her. Yeah we talked about that a lot. I gonna say we were talking about doing a road trip with three comics. Yeah we've always. We've talked about that before. Like doing like a little road trip adventure someplace for all about it. And then she will like i was like we should bring somebody else should meet you. Frank will bring somebody else and then. She said that she want to be in the car with you for that long. Why can't go. And then i said you know one. Don't wanna be the car with both of you guys at the same time for. I think that's fair. I handle you for a long time. I can handle here for a long together. Yeah that's fair. I think it wouldn't be us being annoying individually. I think us like band definitely getting a lot arguments. I like say something ridiculous. And then i wouldn't be able to let it go and i'd be like what the fuck did you say. And then as marlins Chica now done cool. That's what we're doing been replaced done here. I think like to refer back i study. Cited undergrad. so i'm old. it's been a minute dynamics. Three people are the best. I would agree with that. Because they're saying. I know i'm really goes back like one guy. We're talking about this. She said that she went on like a trip with her. Two friends Disneyland or something. Every single time that were they kept fighting because was like tubers is one and then she would go the other friend that it was like tubers again so they thought somebody was always being left out. She's like next time. I go on a trip to take one friend on taking three friends. So i don't know i always had a whole bunch of someone around people depends on the dynamic. 'cause i definitely have certain people that i can spend all day with just me and them and it's chill and then there's other people know there needs to be the third person there to break the tension and i don't know i haven't been in the third wheel situation in a really long time so i if you get stuck that way maybe you're not as interesting as the other person i don't know and depends on the common person that two thousand a floater type of person. I feel like i'm the outcast. In general about have one friend and that friend would have like their group of friends they have. I never have like my own. Klay like busted random people at all over the place. Yeah so it's like. I'm everywhere i get. I was like that for a while. I've had a few main groups of friends or squads as they say and it's it's cool belonging to a group but sometimes it's nice to like do your own thing too so no yeah. I think i feel like i've always had. I've always been in like two or more groups of friends. But i'm just kinda like a recurring member for all of them. Come back for the different seasons. Yeah exactly you know like like yeah exactly just john i dauphin two or three times a season and all on its way covering. Let's season you're going to with myself l. covered but yeah. We're taking a trip. I feel like i feel like she got would be. She would be the third wheel but she would be that. Thanks to break off the 'cause sometimes annoys. Show me. yeah it's true. I do annoy the out in also annoys me too. But he's more vocal about it and we do so. I think i think one we wouldn't wanna make a huge scene in front of her. So that i think i think at one i think at some point we won't care mean. Yeah mentally but also like a good. You know impartial party committee. I would agree to that. I think we all went on a trip. You would be like a good like an equal bipartisan. So we're not like you know like when pablo goes inside because he's gonna go get snacks. And then i'm like fucking bobble being a dick fucking day and acting like complain. You and then the same thing. Like when i've just come down and then i guess it's exactly just under the group. Currently we're gonna carrier ideas and shit for always that person. I was willing to the designated driver. Let's see that sounds really. Sounds terrible is the group that stop. Sorry i'm trying to pretend that situation again. Could both guys that instead what. You cannot be my dad fucking now. So that's weird that you made yourself heard ed because we're bring colors. Frank why why are you ask. I'm black personals. The fried chicken now. I don't have a dad. You're black lives matter. You're now living up to your standards. your own can the mom air. Anyone says yes voted official honoree mom of completely useless completely useless. Mom dad fuck now. We gotta get mothers day gifts. We got a little while still town. That's not that long time slot has not i want. I have to remember to forget. Yeah yeah you hated that that that much you verbally. He's been committed to that. I would just out of respect. I'd be like yeah. I can throw. What do you mean. I myself it up whenever i want. What kind of talent what. When did that become useful. I'm not saying that it's italian and for that you're the worst accident. You're the worst. What's your through whenever. I want to get the fuck out. If you commit a you actually throughout ashley. I can calm down her lorraine okay. Oh yeah it's worth. It was worth every every second is so worth it Man disappointed me constantly Gca you talking about travel place that you wanna go like what is the furthest place you could leave right now. No consequences. money wasn't an object. You could be there in the next ten minutes. Where would you go. What would i want to go. I think for the stubble we're talking about. I think that the trick is the big part of the thing so it could be in ten minutes. I just mean like if she had a destination go yeah. A road trip is about the adventure that the group goes on. It's not necessarily nation. But i want to know if she could go anywhere. Where would where would be to even like thailand or dubai. Okay most of the time i. I've never felt like all go to europe like that was never that was never just like my trip will be cool. Then i can do it. You can travel whole different countries during one trip by like i'd rather go elsewhere. Bird lifestyle someone or somewhere like a jungle place like the philippines like cultural saying i think brazil south africa. My sister actually traveled to both of those places. I'm jealous by either south africa thailand to more exotic places right. Yeah i know you're european history. You know everyone says lot of fun when like the infrastructure shit. I yeah no them near the end like less awkward. I really wanna go to japan. Like and i'll be off. I had one place to go. And i couldn't go anywhere else. Fucking semi japan. I would love to go there because of all the enemies part of it but it's not just the enemy they have a fucking thirty foot gundem minnesota and go there. They have a whole city named after fucking anime character like they changed the name of the city to conan city to match an anime character. Name name it the japanese version. They literally named it. Conan in english cohen conan. There's a story about a kid who basically he gets like He's in high school and he gets put into a body of child and the only way. He's trying to solve the mystery of what happened to him so he has to solve all these mysteries until you can figure out what happened to him to chow body in a child's body child in his body no no his body's just disappear gun. What happens to the child that he didn't take over a child's body. I think i think he became the child. Freaky friday situation. No no. he like regressed in age to Okay yes okay. Yes and the whole city after they named the whole city after but also like the food. I really wanna go see their temples and also like they're the architecture of some of the just like the little towns in the homes look so fucking cool like the aesthetic. Yeah these older industrial like little towns like a train for whatever reason goes through them. And i've seen tiktok people that have moved their no. But i understand why it's there for transportation but it's just very like interesting that this loan off city has a train to. It's very unlike we don't have that. So that's why it's very interesting anyway. They have a lot of different. They have built a good infrastructure as far as travelling. You could travel. Yeah trains very excitable. So yeah that sounds cool. You just go to like fucking place. Yeah i mean they have so many in the temples that they have their looked so fucking cool but yeah they just have a lot of things. I would like to see and then the food all my guy can only imagine like and like not even just like like sushi irregular japanese food. Like i sound really weird. But i'm not that i want to go to this place. This is an example of like how far they of take. I think he wants to play. No i just. It was so interesting to me. Whatever you know. I don't wanna go there. But they have like a restaurant that is like a. Everything's based on on like poop poop yet like you get a instead of a dish you get like a of a toilet saying i want to go there. I'm just saying like the fact that they take imagination. Take like not afraid to go anywhere with like different foods and so like the the dish instead of being a regular dish it looks like a toilet bowl and then it's like a beef stew in it so the fact that they're not afraid to go places that most places would be like. What the fuck you would be really interesting. You know what key. I wanted to go to that place of course where he goes. Hey idea we can do. I think it would be fun to go on an which the three of us. Because i think we would probably push her out of her comfort zone. I enjoy. i enjoy doing that to friends. Like my friend tasha dude. She's cool but she. I definitely pushed her out of her comfort zone. All the fucking time. And i love think you think you would. You would change as a person. I think i think good for you to join our coal jordan. We're starting to cope. Committee is a completely use. This call. But i'm just But either way the In japan they do all kinds of like just things that most people would consider strange and they take it but not afraid to take it a different places also. They have a pokemon cafe. That i must go before. He died in the maple camman. Yu-gi-oh is it you you it is yu-gi-oh you got the pronunciation rates to see my cards. Would you like to see. No one wants to see your car. Yeah it's not later after the podcast. What good right answers does it. Yeah it's like a bit flirty. Because i'm like i'm confident of my cars like i combined it with joey deck and she's pretty fucking goals though or even know what that means. Yeah yeah. I put my decks together. That's what it means. The dax must be a big deck yet. Thank you it is. It's it's not your average sized deck back so you should know the viking. Joe only only. Do you get to be really special to me. If i show you give you already met my mom. You've met my grandma you've been on my family you haven't you'll probably see my yu-gi-oh cards when you come over later this month the fuck show mitch shit on care no my all my about my valuable comic book stuff will be locked away in a secret place where you'll never find them or what you're going to like i think it's valuable but this is fucking cool and then rip it open and fucking cry the cards no i would know that if something seal i have managed i already noted something open my brother in law came into my room the other day they were over he comes into my room and he likes like all the stuff i have on the shelves and stuff so cool but he doesn't know how to not touch things so i'm like oh my computer like doing something for him he's lake content so yeah so grabbing stuff and i'm like what the fuck you doing he's like looking at like dude you can't be looking at ship liquid is is what your fucking is chica. What would you do if you were dating. A dude and you had a collection of toys on his desk. Who until his room. And then it's just like star wars hub star wars comic books bunch of funchal. Pops fuck you okay. You know what it looks like. I noticed that. I worry about the wrong things like you. Wanna tell me stuff. And then i'll be like. Oh yeah. I had a patient today and she fails her tests to psych rotation. And then i was like oh what she blacker what she why she's like. Why does that matter. I need to fill the visual my story. What is he doing with toys. like once. the display okay. Okay okay if you saw this in a man's room be a bank. it's for my money. there's money in it. Okay it's useful. I was as holy buddy. Hey frank hottest thing. I've ever seen bigger. There's nothing wrong with having fun things. I think people really passionate about comic book people or like animate people don't have a thing that might really into you know learning about it but it'd be different for me like okay. This is a lot that let's see the quick quick question question the thing for me out people that are two into something are snobby about it. It's very no. let's see i. I have learned. Oh i don't want to deal with this against the little snobby. But i think it's not worse than other. Comedians are to each other. So i i can deal with it. But it's a guy's house and he had a bogeyman display all over. He was a fan fan. Like yeah the matching mattress. I feel like i would have known. He will talk about pokemon before i got to. Yeah just like a fan or is he like the rails things look you. Can't you can't hide it right. you have to. You have to introduce it like very specifically like i always feel the mount i like. Oh what are you into. And then when it's clearly not going to be anything like comic books. Anime over says parking lot of poking around is a big goto. Actually believe it or not because it was like really big based in the us a lot of girls at least they can understand pokemon because they grew up with it so that was probably one of the easier. Phantoms to like. Go into where like anime. I enemy is a very hard threshold to like to for people to like except they they see the here anime and they like oh they associated with like henty automatically associated with. That's for kids and there's a lot of like animating that is just meant for adults like it's very mature stories and also most anime soap operas like even the action ones are literally just soap operas super weird but no just like with aks just like with about fighting or like i watched the other one. That's called food wars and it's literally like watching iron chef with more drama so there's like yeah what what. I don't think she talking about it. You understand have never seen iron chef. I think he lost track. Thank you okay cool. No it's just like. Yeah so i think for me when i tried to like. I'm dating somebody like starting to date them. I definitely have to be a friend about it. Because you don't want to surprise the person with it because that makes it like really worse so i always try to tell them like. Oh yeah. i'm definitely in a comic books. I do watch anime. But you definitely have to gauge gauge on. The person and i don't think people should be afraid to be themselves but you should understand that. Not everyone is into what you're into and you kind of have to like dana. His unsurprisingly. Dating even more difficult when you're a huge bucket nurse Yesterday no it's weird. Because i'm animated dating after people like our favorite anime characters negative. Why there's not any good ones. Which i'm i'm shocked that they haven't like made a good one but like i try to know i've only i've only heard of like other people have shown me But i think if they made a good one like it could be really revolutionary as far as like dating apps just because there is a big audience of nerds that have a hard time talking with each other connecting outside of like nerd them and then also it does make it hard. That like being like a nerd is like really in a lot of really hot chicks. That are like going into the genre but now you'll like now. They're pretty big for like very attractive women to start getting into guys. Yeah like every it was just me. It was just people with a little like you but in other words like women too but like definitely like the amount of insanely beautiful women that are into like anime and stuff is kinda crazy. And like i've met a few like gamer. Girls are eagles get called. And it's still kinda shitty 'cause they're still like mean sometimes and but they also like video games. It's heartbreaking thanks. I thought it was like a style like like like god but like you know what it is but it's changed so it is definitely more. It's like it's kind of a more modern cyber goth so a lot of like influences from like anime or video games mixed with like in a girl that you typically would see online talking about anymore. Honestly your budget west. Ian sounded so weird to me. I think i'm just like too far. At the reason why i was like the middle child from my sisters play video games but i was always just watching. And i never like transitioned over to playing. I always watching even when we play them a teenager. I was like watching them. Places i was i would think you should. You should make a youtube series of you just trying out things that you wouldn't do 'cause i would love to see that i would love to see you try to play kind of duty kika versus me trying to my eyebrows. I look like a clown like just like easy. Yeah i would love to watch that just trying all kinds of stuff would be really funny to watch like hey so we pitched a show apparently been under a rock and then she started doing comedy one day that was life you grow up and then you realize that you're an outcast. You didn't realize it until years later. I realized that should very young. I did not realize like. I know i felt kinda like not like i told them. Yeah a yearly. i've always been. I've always had friends. So i've never felt like thought i was now cast but like i still feel like one tremendously know what i always felt like one and then i think when i was in high school i told my friend something like that. He goes utah to one like. I literally i stop because you're saying hi to people am. I gathered now like that. You know it's not you. But i think also like they're like you know somebody i can talk to anybody but it doesn't necessarily mean it's a meaningful action you know and people i think kind of associate. Oh just because he talks to anyone means you can make a connection with people and that's not always true. Yeah i definitely think i'm just like comments. I three or four comments like. Oh you're so well adjusted. How're you doing comedy like that type of thing. It just enough and the people go like okay. You don't really fit here either. So i'm like okay. I didn't realize ask me. I went to a party and they were like oh green booze and i didn't know it was his booze just alcohol or booze like four pack. So what. I buy like a hearty like a hang out in the guys like. Show me your id. I was like okay. I don't believe you ask. And i couldn't decide what together i know like these twenty nine years old and then i was like okay. What about what's another. And he was like. Oh get that like it was like we're locals. Oh god i know that's what you drink twenty or nineteen a rainbow canada's. This looks fun dragging hennessy. And they're all laughing. So i didn't get the joke to see understand why people were laughing at her for bringing hennessy. It's because i mean. I think we already thought were passes. But it's because black people can see the i didn't somebody that's homely that. Yeah that's a big. It's like that and like sir rock. Yeah because i was like what's do too much like raya wines. Like outdoor party does seem like the right vibe. You can kind of bring wine anywhere even especially if you're going like cheap wine box warning. It's like enough where you can literally take it anywhere. Maybe that's the thing. Because i know nigerian people mike officer. You got bring box wine to. I got no kick back like a small party right. Not like a nice event right. It was like oh okay pablo. Let's okay probably you fucking. Don't go enough to those. I'm like you don't wanna under address to a party. Like that's how i thought with the wine so mike why well usually bigger safer choice. I think why. I think maybe you're for your your your best choice. The same thing with beer. I feel like nobody really turns down beer. Beer you can have a barbecue kahad late at night you know. I've had beer at a wedding like school. Bear or y you know. Yeah have you ever drink hennessy. Before that i've sips brought just to have something. yeah no. It is like ridiculously sweet. Had i've only had it like once twice. And after having i don't get how people drink all the fucking time and was so fucking sweet like being strong people like hit you more. Sounds like i'm good. Apple juice or something are the same with margaritas. Everyone's like no not at not even close maybe tequila than for sure not cool again. I was like no no chinga. You're cool okay. Don't say shit about your part of the completely used this call. Now you're cool. Yeah that makes you michael cole. Aren't yeah anytime someone. You're fucking on cool.

Many even cleaned the table when they're done patio fights agent, Bronner, Saturday manning the boxer manning, the politician. And then some lands point mar with manufacturers, I derive early Lee podcast taking behind the scenes. I'm Beth Duran. It's January sixteenth. Another addition of the arrive early legally podcasting to everybody who subscribes rates reviews, shares and sport, they get people United when they love to share their opinion is a sport of boxing. Sierra Leone podcast method ran joined the day by our boxing MMA, combat writer extraordinaire, Lance plug Meyer lands when you speak to athletes. They'll have interesting backgrounds. Have you ever interviewed an athlete who also politician at the same time never? In. Set for the guys spoke to last week, many pack. Yeah, he is a Senator or congressman Senator in the Philippines, and he's an active fighter. Yes. Absolutely. How does he balance to it's a crazy schedule, and you know, he used to be a congressman and we'll work load. There was a lot lighter than it is Senator basically the Senate work is a year round job. He has a few small windows in which he can actually devote all of his time the training. And so this is one of those windows. So he's got to fight coming up on Saturday against Adrian Browner and his trainers are ecstatic because he's had a clear sleigh to really focus on this fi. And they expect a strong performance. We lately we've been giving the, you know with politics in the way, the United States is going to stick to sports. Well, Manny can't do that. He has to stick to politics and sports at the same time, you said down within what was overall theme of the interview was talking about fighting about politics. What is it? We talked a little bit about politics. We talked more about fighting because obviously, Manny patios. Pack is that the only eight division world champion and history of the sport. He's coming back for his first fight at age forty against a guy who's twenty nine years old. And let's be honest. There's a possibility of a rematch with Floyd Mayweather junior. All that stuff was on the table in our conversation. Where did you interview him at I enter viewed at his home watch was loaded with his friends and family, and I'm not going to because I know people that are in decamp massage therapists, same guy, I go to there's usually twenty people in every picture. I see you into his house and try to conduct an interview. Yes. We did try in the fine quiet and that helm very difficult. But what we did was I had a very long breakfast with Manny had a great conversation with them there. And then when everyone was done eating and Manny even windex table down himself after everyone had eaten we sat down, and we found quiet and had a very nice conversation. Let's put Meyer, Manny pack, Yale and quiet. Many. It seems like everything about your fight here with Adrian Browner January nineteenth on Showtime from MGM grand is like an old school event. Did you ever think that you'd be back here running toward the Hollywood sign training wildcard living in this house and getting ready for another fight in Las Vegas film? So blessing excited to be back here in LA to rein in Hollywood again while card so happy about and excited for the fight. Can you talk about how difficult it is? Is to not only perform at this high level, but to do it for so long over so many years. What is the key to doing that? Is that easy the minds? This basically I've been in boxing since winless vessels until now I'm forty years old. So just think about positive thing. And then being spied of all things that you, Hoppy, especially when you got in supporting with your friends and family, I'm always inspired in. I let the do work hard. Every day. You've spoken about your hunger and desire. What is it? I mean, is it the family that really motivates you? What is that really kind of drives you to do this at this point? When you could, you know, go into your life of politics and be done with boxing. Yeah. That's right. That's billions of when you when you have a fashion in boxing and boxing. Smith passion and love to do it. Because I feel okay, I'm really thankful to God for strength in good health at his given. I ask you this every single time. But do you feel like you're closer to feeling like you do one day want to be president of the country right now? I'm nothing about Ryan for president. I'm full being in or whatever to show them the reality of my heart. I want to help them, honestly, my heart. Even is in my town province. I told him if I have other agenda to become a politician, even using my power abuse or visit for myself or my family, we we don't expand our own money. We get back our money rebelled. We give you we buy land Bill build the houses Megan subdivision and give it three to the people and give scholarship free might. Oh, my own from our pocket giving them because we want them to feel what we feel because we've been there in that situation situation, we feel that and we just starting to help them. Can you sense the joy in your return? Like, I was saying I mean, it does have this old school feel while there's been a lot of good fights at T mobile arena. You're going back to MGM grand which hasn't used a while. This is a place where you had that great knockout over Ricky Hatton where you really destroyed Miguel Cotto had so many great memories is that why you wanted the fighting that arena or what exactly led you there? I have a good buy in gym. My first fight in America is in Jim. Okay. Lino holid- WADA that's Joan doing three two thousand one. And their card with Australia and Custodio that's very memorable fight in coming back now to fight again and really thankful MGM for helping us this event, you know, who else you fought there. And I know it wasn't the best memories. But you also fight your buddy Floyd Mayweather there. How badly do you want a second fight with may weather, and what are you going to do to try to make that fight happen yourself? I'm thinking about him. He said deterrment, but my thinking right now is one at the time because you know, I'm forty an example this fight. So I have to this fight. And I'm not thinking anything else having covered your career for so long and knowing you a little bit. I think that there is some unfinished business in your heart. Where you feel like I am the better man and put me on there with the healthy shoulder. And let's see what can happen in this. I want I want that night. That's my thinking if there's another fight this might thinking union, my my mind in my heart. That's my thinking Manny. Thank you so much. I really appreciate it. Thank you lines. Interesting. Interesting perspective in word when you hear from many when you were sitting across from him in this house with eight million people, and he just got done windex seeing the table. What was the impression you have known it for a while? Honestly, Manny pack seemed to be the same guy in our meeting last week as he was in those fights back, then he's he exudes confidence. He's looking forward to this fight. He is it's a it's an opportunity. I think for fight fans to really take a moment and treasure what we've had in this guy. And what he's brought to the sport. He believes that he has a way right now to really adapt to his age he's incorporating for the first time ever in his in his Bach. Life. He learned the son in his fight last year in Malaysia to rest in allow recovery to be part of his preparation for a fight. He's forty years old. So he needs to take a day off here and there, Freddie Roach. His trainer had told me very interestingly that in the fifteen or sixteen years at he had Manny before this fight. He said Manny only took two days off and two days off. Can you imagine that starting seen Manny workout? It's crazy. Yeah. Many pack yell is a phenomenon the Filipino community and any young fighter. It doesn't matter. If he's own or own ten, it's he's young many patio. He's compared because he is the pride of that country. Like, I'm pretty sure he can remember president probably win. But I remember in his heyday, and I grew up with a lot of Filipinos and I lived in a neighborhood for a little bit. And Carson it just knew that it wouldn't pack was fighting and especially inside into Mexican. I would get the text from all my Filipino. How much we better for this? And I'll you know, Mark is going to do that. No, they're going to do this going to do that. And he would just line them up. Knock them out in his heyday where you covering him to. I'll absolutely executioner. Yes. Exactly. Yes. He's brought so much excitement to Las Vegas, and the, you know, those fights that he had AT stadium in Texas, many Paki. I'll like you said, he is a special athlete. I was talking that link to his conditioning coach Justin fortune, and he said, basically disguise the Michael Jordan of the sport. He's he's someone you see this rare talent, you know, it's rare. And when you see it. It's it's nice to be able to sit back and watch an appreciate it was the first time you saw the first time. I saw him fight. Actually. That's a great question. I he fought a guy named David D S that was around like two thousand six seven something like that. I remember, then then, you know, that's the first time I really got to meet Manny. And you know, obviously has English has gotten better over the years the comfort level that we have together. Now. He's able to open up to me. And it's funny because like even at has media day last week when the guys were all shooting him questions it just so happened that I ended up to standing right in front of him. And he would give me like a little look in the I like is this a good question. You know, should I lab right on this one or not what do you think of this one or he'd look at me like I already answered that to you yesterday. So we have a nice bond, and I think that really helps to from my standpoint, I wanna give the readers the opportunity to have something that no one else has for Manny Pacquiao and time and time again, he's delivered that to me. He is somebody who makes his camp in Los Angeles. He was away from Freddie Roach for a little bit. So he wasn't wildcard. But he's back now and why social media. The people are follow. You can know were many patios at all times in LA. He's either playing chess at Penn Pacific park or he's doing ABS at seven in the morning, and there's all men right there with him doing it or you can go run to the Hollywood sign within two. I saw. Video last week where he's running rocky esque where people were running with his crew. But then you saw kids in the background. It must have been at least twenty two hundred people running with him early in the morning. He is very assessable. Isn't he adores people? And I think that that's why he's a politician in the Philippines. He's trying to help people along as best. He can now for the longest time. It was coming out of his own pocket. And I think well, I mean, he would actually have people lineup at his home. They would come by. He would stand at the top of the hill at his home as they came up there. He would hand them money. No. Yes. He would. Yes. He would. And he said in a interview with I that I had with him before if I fail you as a politician if I can't say what I'm doing here. I will make this happen with my own financial backing because that's how deeply he cares about it. He's done things like open schools, tried to get more housing built in a country that you know, seems like an annual basis gets. Hammered by typhoons and bad weather, and it's just you know, poverty stricken country at times. And he's just willing to you know, he cares about that. He came from that remember, the horrible story that we've always heard about Manny Pacquiao that he came came home one day and his father had eaten his dog. I mean, he came from such poverty, and he has that in his heart. He's never forgotten while some of these guys, you know, they reached the the lucrative lifestyle of a CIA world champion boxer. They kind of forget where they came from. He never has. In fact, he's embraces that every single day. Why is he fighting forty because he need money. He loves the sport. I mean, there's no doubt about it. He could easily be focused entirely on his political career. He definitely would have a chance to be a strong candidate for president winters. You'll be president. I believe he's so popular in that country that if he said, I'm running for president the backing behind him would be extraordinary, Freddie. Roach said. Something interesting that you know, it is a different world, and I would actually like worry about man's life. Given the jealousy that exists and politics back there, and there is danger in the Philippines. So it's something that you know, manning has to weigh, but I think he's in a hurry to do that. He could do that now. But I think that he he sees that as something that's down the road. He wants to while he's feeling this way. He's coming off his first knockout victory since two thousand nine when he knocked out Lucas Matisse in Malaysia in July. And I believe that now that he feels good about himself as a boxer again and with a potential Mayweather fight looming. Again, he wants to explore that and see what he's got. He loves training. He loves you know, the grind of of boxing. And you know, he's going to stick with this until it's very obvious that he's finished boxing fans or anybody listening right now just say Pekka may whether the rolling the rise is that really possible their role. On there is. But let's be honest. You're you're you're going to buy. Yeah. So I mean, that's the thing that I struggle every single time I tweet or write something about this. I get all the people bashing the wanna wanna. Hordern exactly. And the thing is that it does still have some interest because many patios wearing about Floyd Mayweather is still undefeated. And there's a there's a possibility with with Manny winning this fight on Saturday against Brunner. He's he's he just beat a guy who's eleven years younger than him. He's going to be able to say bring up bring on a guy who sort of fights like may whether and remember if you wanna go back to the first may whether I had a hurt shoulder. I fought that with a shoulder that needed pretty serious surgery afterward, give me a healthy crack at Floyd Mayweather. Let's bring the fans the fight that they've always wanted to see between the two of us. And you know, what I can deal your first loss of the seen each other. They've been same room anywhere. It was funny that the day after our conversation. I went to the clippers game just on the hunch because I knew Manny was going to be there Filipino heritage. The big on. Yeah. Yeah. So he was going to be there for sure, but we we know Floyd goes to a ton of Lakers clippers games. And I said, you know, what this could happen again. Just like it happened back in two thousand fifteen when they met at a Miami Heat game. And it ended up being a huge thing toward making that fight. So I said I'm gonna go again. Sure enough you in just for that reason. Yeah. And Floyd Floyd ended up taking a see. And it was, you know, a startling Manny was got involved with the Chuck the Condor, clippers mascot, throwing t shirts out and stuff. Like that repect you're on the floor throw. Not sure. Yeah. It was thrown out these operation mascot. Yeah. Seriously, run these t shirts in the crowd any through one. He kinda like showed off his left arm right in front of Floyd through a t shirt, right? Over Floyd said, and then he came over and shook hands with Floyd. And they had a, you know, a little bit of conversation laughed at each other moved on. And then I was able to get some quality time with Floyd about the possibility of those two guys fighting, and you know, look. Floyd doesn't do anything without a purpose. There was no reason that he had to go to that game, except he did know that man he was going to be there. And why not, you know, get everyone talking about this with this fight coming up floored really wanted to see Filipino night. Oh, yeah. Game knowing that they were gonna play afterward. That's wink, wink, right? There really is a demand for that. I think that they're absolutely is a demand is it going to be the same demand as the four point six million pay per view buys that they had in the first time. No. But let's be honest. If you get two million buys that's better than any fight has done since their fight. So it's worth exploring. And it's something that I totally think will happen with many Paki victory and Saturday, very interesting. So forty year old many pack. Yeah. Finding twenty nine year old age Brunner on Saturday, but pacu isn't your normal forty year old right? His body differently. He operates at a different speed, different speed and unbelievable strength size. I mean every. Can you talk to says you can list the the fighters Tim, Bradley, one while marquess all of them have looked like they've been through a war after they're done fighting Manny Pacquiao, it's almost a supernatural. It's a rare gift that he has. I mean, again going back to my conversation with Justin fortune, who's coached many athletes and in conditioning strength says you know, what we see with Manny Pacquiao is special. It's something that it's a gift and Manny is able to you know, just punish these guys. And you know, I think that even at age forty now that he's been able to really try to figure out how the body works and that he needs to incorporate this rest, he expects to be at his absolute peak on Saturday night. He will be perfectly primed you can read a story. And in today's times that will talk about all this. And he's he feels like he's got completely solved for the people who are big boxing fans or fans and. And if you have a newsletter out. No, right. They subscribe. What do they do? Yeah. The fight corner. It's runs every Tuesday. We usually post it before noon, it'll go straight to your Email box. It's free to sign up. And I try to pack that with this much boxing formation as I have on that on that given week or so the fight corner Email must do that. I'm going to run. Oh, thank you. The app, right? Yes. App. I pay for it actually paid for my Olson's crashing. So I go to sports and down. And I go to fight corner at that. Maybe get now the schedule for you were you going to be going? What's busy what what's going on February March April? Wow. This is a weekend that I can't be in two places at once. But obviously, there's a huge UFC card where TJ dillashaw who's from Orange County. I kim. Yeah. Is in New York fighting in the US's first ESPN show on their app the ESPN plus app, and he's fighting the flyweight champion Henry sue Huda. Who was who grew? Yeah. The wrestling the former Olympic. Yeah. And he actually was born in born and raised a little bit here and in LA. Okay. So you know, that fight was originally supposed to be an Anaheim. It was unfortunate that they moved it. But they moved it because they wanted as much exposure for the first ESPN card that's gonna be on Saturday as well. The following week. We've got a bell tower may card with Fayed or Melian Anco. Oh against Ryan Bater. That's the heavyweight grand prix. Finale. We've got super featherweight champion Giovanni Davis fighting Abner marris stubhub center. Good one. I I actually the new name. Not forget it. But yeah. Dignity health. Sports spark. Yes, we had the hashtag still magic that all kinds of stuff. You can still call it the war grounds the war ground. We'll we'll take that. Right. A week after that, we've got Microsoft theater. Leo Santa Cruz is defending his bell, basically. And just a stay busy. You know, it's interesting Beto. I put this in the fight corner. There's a there's a strong possibility that the the world welterweight champion. Shawn porter fight for March night that was scheduled for T mobile arena in Vegas will also get moved to the war grounds. So we gotta keep an eye on that that definitely could happen. According to my sources week after that March sixteenth, you've got Mikey Garcia, aerospace and Dallas. That'd be Mikey's. I pay per view, Mikey moving up to divisions. Yes. Very bold move. He's been working out with Victor Conte. The mad scientist. Sexist. Yes. So he feels strongly about that. Then March twenty third at the forum LA just got Miguel Burt shell Francisco, Vargas revenge rematch is going to be there. I'll run against Bundy though. I like that more than some people are saying, it's going to be another destruction. I don't see that taking a lot of time off. So yes, it's interesting. Okay. And then lastly in at least what we have right now, April twelve at Staples Center of silly, low marchinko will be fighting. He'll be fighting the winner of a fight in in Dallas. Where to the expected winners this guy, Richard Komi? But you know, I was talking to Andy foster to head of the California State Athletic Commission last night. And he was telling me that fights in California get this out of in two thousand eighteen California had more professional boxing matches staged than New York. New Jersey, Texas and the Vada combined. What s and more and buying more? And you know, what that speaks to the passion in my in my opinion. Because most of these fights are taking place in California. It speaks to the passion of the southern California fight fans. And I that's something that I've said over and over again, a love it. It's worth it's worth exploring for these promoters. And they they know more more than ever that. Instead of looking at these other states where there may be some kind of like guaranteed fee, your you'd better look LA and the Southland because you're going to get a strong audience. And yes, while there, we you know, these fighters may be on the hook for some taxes and stuff like that the live gate money that they're receiving from these these events people show makes it worth it. They show especially in LA the fight corner. I just signed up right now. I put in my Email Durant's g mail. Subscribe, our boxing and MMA newsletter. Written by put Mark comes out every Tuesday. Look, I'm your bile raising Oklahoma and Glendale Arizona graduate from Kelsey. Fullerton. Get you pug Meyer, all kinds of action one and only Lance book, your social media is LA times. Puck Meyer on Twitter. If you are like Jeff Miller who we had on recently. Who said I'm Elliot t chief landlord. Great job. Thank you so much better. Great job covering combat sports and pretty cool to be able to fit record with Manny Pacquiao. But I have a feeling that Dylan Hernandez. Not that impressed having breakfast with fanny pack. You've done it for a while. Right. You saw him in San Francisco before anybody knew he was. Yeah. It was may whether undercard at the Billy Graham auditorium. So you don't care that Lance had breakfast. All right. That's cool. Really nice guy. Have you ever talked to him? I have does. He know you probably not knows. I'm coming off right away. Getting on you feeling that you just wanna talk back to Basham. I got one of those stories later maybe for. For. Got something related. Here's your chance talk boxing. Okay. Well, I think that this is you know, I mean anytime you see guy fighting at forty years old. It's disconcerting obviously right now that said Adrian Brunner's kind of a weird fighter. He's a counterpuncher, but he can't move going backwards, which is really weird thing. You would think that if you can counterpunch you learn how to fight going backwards. But the thing is Brunner can't hurt him. So this is a good fight actually patio because you can earn money against can name opponent without risking injury. I mean, my concern is what this is going to lead to these probably gonna win where we're going where we're going. We're going to talk about it, Spence or Garcia, right? And I think both of those guys seriously hurt Manny. So you don't think may whether no I don't think may whether wants I guess it's possible. I mean that would be the best thing that Manny and Floyd talked at the clipper game a lot of wink, wink, hug on the, you know, you'll be there. No, I'm not I would not cover that. Yes. You drawing the line? I mean, I'm not going to this one angel actually asked me like do you wanna go? To the patio owner. And I said, no why because you know, what I actually I like boxing a lot actually do as critical as I am about is basically like I thought either I'm gonna write about it. I'm gonna be like extremely harsh. Right. But this isn't like the wilder fury thing where they kind of came into our town. You know, they stayed off my turf so to speak, and I'm not going to like go to Las Vegas to go pick. You. Don't trash listening right now going forget you Dylan Hernandez. You have a chance to go to the cover fight. And you don't want to know. And that's the thing is I really wanted to norm Ron Heim who's in a long time correspondent for ring magazine. And you know, Arizona Republic columnists. He's going to be celebrating seventieth birthday would love to be there for that Dylan Hernandez columnist for the times that your title, you, get to write whatever you want when they assign you places basically the way my week works on Mondays I call Plaski clash he tells me what he's writing and I work around. All right. So the Rams yes NFC championship game. Are you excited about that? For the city of LA. I think it was a great year for NFL football. Los angeles. I mean things went as well as they possibly could got to kind of think back to where we were a couple years ago. Right. When the teams moved here term. Yeah. It wasn't an a good spot. Even like, the Rams kind. We see very lukewarmly. Obviously. When the chargers came here. It was kind of like we'll we weren't even sure we wanted has now we've got a second team. It's an uphill battle. You feel it right? The chargers as well. As they played this year still doesn't have much of a fan base here in with the Rams you feel like they're still fighting for relevancy in the city. You know, the reality is they're still not the Lakers. They're still not the dodgers. This is an opportunity to help them. Maybe get to that point. Having observed you cover the dodgers for many years with greater little and different managers that come through. You have a way with managers because you see them all the time where you can get stuff out of him interacted with Sean McVay NFL's different because you only get fifty minutes. You don't really get to know these guys. What's your impression of him from a distance that he's bread to do this? He does that NFL robot speech thing, except he doesn't lot faster. Right with more energy. You could see why the players like him a little bit skeptical going back to the playoffs last year part of that. I think maybe it was wasn't quite at that point yet. I'm still not sure if he is you know, I think he needs to write quarterback in the system when they lost a couple of games late in the year. I think we kinda saw maybe some limitations of what happens when girlies getting shut down. There were the better team against outs there. We're gonna win that game. No matter what. So I'm actually kind of curious now. Okay. So New Orleans skin. You know in yours is gonna kind of know what the Rams are going to do and Ken McVeigh and Goth find a way to beat these guys if the Rams go what can that do for the popularity because obviously it still Lakers and dodgers. And then after that. Yeah. Well, you know, and I think you know, talking to a lot of Cowboys fans, right? This past week leading up to that game and minder standing sixty forty maybe the crime was that's going to be kind of tough to break. My gut still tells me that the raiders are still more popular here. Forget about this season enters it just the brand. And this is a Latino city and. In the families that kind of stuff, it's a family thing. It gets passed along. I was talking to you know, one of the fans one of the guys that belongs to the fan club story about right? Yeah. You know, one of the fan close in the valley, and they meet at this restaurant. They wind, and I actually had lunch there. And the manager of the retinal was telling me how people bring their kids. They're right there like five year old kids running around up in this. And so you kind of wonder is that going to be tough to break. Right. I mean because there are now hundreds of thousands of millions of people in the LA area that are like fans, and that are raiders fans, and I do wonder ram too. Yeah. This isn't about performance. So the raiders compla- bad. I think raider fans are gonna stay raider fans. The Cowboys even if they go a long way without winning a Super Bowl, I'm guessing those fans are gonna stay Cowboys fans as I think. Yeah, the Rams have this kind of challenge of having new, you know, steal fans away from them. You're probably looking to convert probably newer type offense. There have their loyal loyal fans. And they're hard core. The Ramle other their season-ticket fans, but I didn't know I had so many friends who are. Cowboy fans like everybody was at that game that I knew that the Kabul they went there or when the reader, and that's why people oh Rams gonna take over. Yeah. If they get to simple, it'll be great excitement. And it's one of those where you take civic pride that they're from LA heck root for them. But I'm still Niner fan. I'm still Green Bay fan. I'm still a heck how many kids in LA are patriot fans because they grew watching Tom Brady over and over and over, you know, and the other thing too is. I mean, I think what the raiders you also have the floors Jim Plunkett with that goes back to generations. Right. Yeah. Well, it also the fact that they're Latino in in LA when the raiders were here during the preseason, I talked to a lot of raider fans in the parking lot about why the raiders like why this loyalty, and they talked about those guys, right? I mean, they were almost to those fans what Fernando were to dodger fan got kid grandkid into Cowboys. I had the fortune of being really good when the Rams and the raiders left town the first time there was just vacancy. And I think also around that time, my understanding is that's round the time when the NFL started broadcasting games in Mexico. Oh when the Cowboys were winning. So I think a lot of people in Mexico. They would show a lot of Cowboys and Steeler game like vinegar who played for Chievo USA and cheetahs Mexico the goal as work with him at spectrum TV stuff. He was a Steeler soundly why they would always show of Cowboys and Steeler games Mexico. So they have a big fan base as far as like the Latino fan in LA they gonna root for root for Gillette. Yeah. I'm from LA cou but it's not like the Lakers where people were getting Laker tattoos. People have chick Hearn tattoos. And right now the Lakers are in Dilling Hernandez is. The Lakers will they have abroad. That's it. Right. That's pretty much it. Yeah. I mean, that's a boy. I don't even know where they go from here. Because like there's this assumption. Well, let's package all the kids and get like Anthony Davis. Well, how about if New Orleans doesn't want those guys? I mean, I think that that's kind of the danger. Now is the way they're playing you have to wonder if these guys are like hurting their trade valley enough to where they could prevent the Lakers from getting a frontline type player. I think like fans of teams, especially baseball fans love doing this. Right. Like, you know, they named like six players on the team. And let's trade them for by trout or something. Right. I don't know where they go from here. Veasley? Yeah. Just on the game Sunday loss to Cleveland there. Yeah. And well, you see I think every time those guys step on the court. It's kinda strengthening the case that LeBron the most valuable player in the league, right? I mean, one twenty three games or whatever I was at that game. And I was in the crowd for the first half, just roaming around friends, and the people grumbling about trade trade trade were probably the same people six months. No, no, no, the kids the kids the kids like they're called prospects for reason in baseball. There's a reason to call the future because right now LeBron window is closing, and you can feel the grumbling. I mean, you're still gonna have people go and to say I saw LeBron's sit down. There was family from Chile where all oh, the kid had LeBron jersey on and I started talking to the dad's like vacation there's only chance he's ever have to see LeBron. And we saw him sit down. I forget that part as a reporter or somebody might only go for one time. But if you're watching the product on the floor right now, I don't even know who's I think you also get concerned. Right. I think Ron talked about this. You know, the finals last year, and he talked about it right after sign with the Lakers this year. But you know, I think part of his calculation coming here was that he thought. Okay. Well, you know. Yeah. The average player by the time they're thirty four they start slowing down. Well, I'm not the average guy. I'm gonna have a longer prime my prime window. I still have a few more years. And I think that was part of the calculus, but you know, thirty four was when Kobe coys achilles. Right. I mean, that's when he started breaking down how about if that's kind of the same thing with LeBron. What if what just happened with growing isn't just type of fluke thing, you know, we've talked about resiliency, and obviously he hasn't been hurt much up to this point. But what if this starts happening every year? Now, it did kind of raise my eyebrows a little bit. When I heard him say that it is introductory news conference that you know, he thought his Linda was a little longer. It's like you're not quite sure at the same time as the Brown. Right. We've never seen anybody like before it may maybe he is that exception to the rule, but the status if you count demonic playoff games that he has it adds up to a little bit more than three full seasons. And that takes a toll on, and you place, very physical style of basketball. Right. I he probably gets hit. More than anyone since shack. He gets hit a lot. So you're nestled on the Lakers muscle in the Rams what about the dodgers you like them? I mean, I don't know what they're doing to you. They're acting like they're like, I say that. Because why are they talking about the luxury tax? So baseball has it's not a salary cap. This is important to point out. This is not a salary cap. But if you go over a certain threshold you have to pay like attacks. Now, if it's your first time going over you pay twenty percent of the overage chase. If it's the second time thing goes up to thirty percent. And then the third time maybe like fifty. Oh, yeah. That's to make sure teams just don't over spam. The last year last year the explanation for stained under was well, we need to reset it. Once you go under you go back to being like the next year saving over. You'll be counted as first time if all right? So last year that was justification we need to stay under. So that we can spend next winter which price Harper Machado here, we are. And it's basically plea and Alex would salaries pretty much they dump that and that's pretty much what they've done. Maybe there. Some cash flow issues. I think that the team is now separated these companies all do this, right? Where technically Dodger Stadium was a separate entity from the dodgers the dodgers pay rent to the clothing company that. Arrive early business podcast. Yeah. And so they just don't spend player. They've also separated the team from the broadcasting rights the TV money isn't going to the team fan. I don't care whereas Jack. Well, that's what I'm right because in the end, whereas Manam. All companies under Guggenheim's control. That's their problem. I wanna player who I wanna go watch. That's what I wrote. So to me, this is really when you look at how shortsighted baseball is this like a perfect example of where think about like NBA free agency. Right. It's exciting. Your teen goes out and signs a guy. Like now, you're excited about on water. On under exciting the next season to justify not spending money on these guys. The dodgers are basically trying to tell their fans. Are you know, what it's actually a bad for us? If we get Bryce Harper. That's what they're basically saying. If we signed this guy tenure this is bad for us in your basically at that point. You're denigrating the best thing that your sport has to offer. Which is it starts, right? You're saying if you get the best players it's bad for your team like the poodles. How are you supposed to get his getting thirty million whatever it is except he's twenty six but Chato in Harper twenty six for you. You already old GM Dylan Hernandez, are you signing her? And here's the thing is one of the reasons like these contracts go for ten years. Right. So you take the rod thing know, the first one was to fifty over ten years. Okay. The reason you stretch it out over ten years to defer the payments. Yeah. Right, by the way, when Iran signed that first contract baseball total revenues were around three billion. Now, it's over ten ten. Okay. So the sport is making three times more money paying twelve for pregnant. That's part of the reason why these keep going. So you would think though that as the revenues go up the players would be earning more money like realistically, Bryce Harper is probably worth fifty sixty seventy million a year. But if you sign them and say, well, we don't want to give you that much once. So like, why don't we spread it out over ten years? And we'll do it thirty year over ten years or whatever. So you can't even look at it as a ten year deal. Why aren't they signing anybody because every team has done now is hire people that evaluate that? Look at the sport the same exact way. And if everybody has the same ideas, right and everybody says, okay? Well, you know, what signing ago tenure deals like a bad thing? And nobody does it has the effect of driving prices down the union is part to blame for this. They they don't want to have to pay like clubhouse dues or something. Signed. I don't know who they are. They're like middle relievers. And they're like veteran dies. I'm just like in general the transactions last month. None of the big names have gone anywhere. So here's the thing too. If I were to sign, Bryce fiber. I would want him signed by Christmas can sell a ticket, right? Yes. So like if you're a kid in LA in your baseball dodger fan, would that be awesome? Like, if your parents you say like a partial season ticket baggage. And you had it under your Christmas tree. That's like an opportunity blown here. And like, yeah, I get it like in the short term, they're saving money. But I think they're really kind of damaging their product. You know baseball doesn't have superstars anymore. There's like a national profile guy. Harper is as close as you have to win right now. We don't really know much about him any. No. And the only reason like he is that famous think it was because he was on the cover at sixty. He was more. Like, he was the he'll when he was in Washington. That's more the reason war, but I think. But you never hear anything about him off the field. Right. You never hear that. He's doing he married with that. Yeah. He's Boris guy. Think right? Marketing their correct. It's interesting where. Yeah. In around the corner, and we don't these guys were starred aren't going to me. Baseball's always been very short. I mean, even when you look at like there wolf thing about how they treat like celebrations and stuff, right? Oh, don't throw your, you know, people started on, you know, a lack of celebration. I always say backflip law day long, the Korean baseball Twitter account or looking my goodness. There's a Korean baseball Twitter. We're all they do is the tweet that flips hundred thousand views every single almost everybody. I mean, the NBA's the one that's doing it. Right. You look our most popular as in this country. They're all basketball players and look what they do. That's what you should be trying to replicate. And guys celebrate remember the last. Yeah. You know, emission Hernandez.

The No Jumper Show Ep. 45

"Glamourising. What is what is? It's like camping. Would you say swipe up I'll glamorous camping? Yeah, basically, it's like you camp, but it's almost like you're in like a total like wilderness area, but then you have like ten like your tent, like kind of big and has like a real bed and everything, so it's a little bit more glamorous. Basically. Hey, swipe up! Hey Swipe up you. WanNa, join the no jumper show house phone. Women camera supposed to be assumed. I got some coffee. Let's go. Yeah so it's going to be like a totally different thing than any vacation trip Ira Ben on I never lie. It'll probably just be a bunch of camping. Have you ever even been camping before? I'm going to be you. It's been a long time. Yeah I'm not. You're not camper. I'm not a campaign as somebody asked me recently. That I want to go camping on my I'll camp out at the fucking in Four Seasons at the supreme store. I haven't done that since like. God knows when. I. To be there for sure, I respect because well I was thought that shit was corny. Fuck until then one time I went by the Supreme Line, and somebody told me like Yo all them. Fools are like with it like you gotta be like doing something out there on the street all night. Nobody's GonNa, fuck you. He's basically like mad. Blakey's over there, the smoking dope. motherfuckers got pills like you're not gonNA. Let it expose them, but actually they're. They're real. They're not a bunch of dorks out there on Fairfax although they call Gama's change, right because I, mean it's is completely different from when I used to go out there and fucking I mean there is no Fairfax right now right, but I'm assuming that it will go back to some sort of normalcy, but is it like a raffle or some sure like? Is there a non so I think? They like disbursed lineup. Because at first they used to be. You could come lineup maybe like the night before and in the morning you can. Literally line up in front of the store, but it got to a point where so many people and so much shit that like they? They broke it up and they started like lining people up like back over across the street like where fucking Fairfax High School is and kind kinda like broke it up and it's like way different and the game has changed. I mean there was only so long. motherfuckers run that block like that completely turned into a carnival a lot of times to like you'll come. You'll get like a number spot line or some shit, and then the after that she wants to see sharing sitting next to me, she wants our. Challenge. Tattooed side. That's not that's makeup bret. Hart. You. Do it a lot. Sometimes I switch it up. Next to to the enemy during this. Is Political Talk. Over here. So you identify as a roof Korean. What does that mean? You ever heard that term yet? Can have a quarter inch I. Got People that go on the roof to protect their ever heard this term before so this will roof, Koreans. I guess it's just the motherfuckers hanging. Who protect their business like do or die? So. What are you just hear oh she. Oh. She needs the adapter if you want to. You got the adapter death threat while we're getting the adaptor, I just WanNa. Take a quick moment to say that Man I've been wearing a lot of my fashion Nova drip. Wow, available at fashion of DOT COM ELEVEN! Good close over there a lot of good sweatsuits, t shirts jeans Erie. She needs to quarter thing for the headphones. Boy Guess is what I'm trying to say. show with everybody over there at blue. You see that they just made a huge donation to. It's on the no Debra instagram. Basically just something I wanted to get out of the way. No It's out of the goodness of my heart. We got a dog. Has Fashion of a partner. Anyway Yeah I. Don't know why the the term Korean is a new thing also I don't think that's going to plug into that now. We'll see. How that works, it's not tied at all. There's like a piece of supposed to go in that piece. He gave me a new one one. Can I just say Seemingly like sort of avoiding dumping into the heavy shit. Weird Work Weird weekend for your girlfriend to have a birthday. Yeah, or I I know people had babies, too. Yeah, because it's like a weird time in history where nobody wants to hear about your personal shit. Nobody wants to hear anything that is not about the society. So when it's your birthday and you WanNa Post Shit that is sort of like. Hey, look at me. Everything's great. Dan Really trying to hear that right now. Different Time in American history house. You guys weekend, so you were at the protest. I went to the protests a peaceful one on Thursday before. The got. Their writing I went to a peaceful one in downtown, and yeah. If I'll get to be there, I want to help out in any way that I can. I didn't get to go out this weekend to any of the big protests because I don't want to go with and like I. Don't think it's safe to go alone, but you know I tried to do my part on social media and the Internet. Yeah, Definitely. GonNa end the protests being boyfriend all weekend, so I was at home I didn't get a chance to go out yet, but I definitely did my part of social media I think that. Been you know collecting information on which. Which organizations donate to which ones are actually? Give me money and shit like that. Because that was. That was a big thing that I was seeing was. Checking the authentic authenticity of some of them, some of the the links and shit like that. It is really hard to know what's real easy is yeah, right? Fake something like that. Which ones which ones do you think that people should donate to? People don't know they're listening. I mean first of all I. Think the. Directly you donate until his family is going to be. Probably number one choice almost. Option. And then if you donate directly to the black lives, matter movement. Do their through links on their page. I feel like that's a good one also the companies that are not the company's organizations that are setting up Situations Yeah I think those are the top three. Let me throw this out there. Me J server meeting the other day. We're talking about merch stuff and he was just basically like dude like feels like a weird time. To merge because it feels like almost everything would come off as a little tone deaf right now to think and I was like yeah, I totally agree and one of the conclusions that we ended up coming to was Kinda like. Number one that we want to partner like good organizations doing shit in La you know I feel like nowadays if you're going to do t shirts or whatever it Kinda. And who knows? When the appetite for like stupid shit will change, but it feels like right now. People want everything to be something like sorta resonates and has a message and stuff, so we were kind of going back and forth on a lot of different ways to do that. And we came to a few interesting ideas. One of them was like. What if we sort of like, go out of our way to like sponsor kids for college like we do. Definitely, do that, you know because there's a lot of people. Watch us there that age. Where if they had extra thousands of dollars to be able to college, make a huge difference in their life, and that's kind of thing wherever you know. We could help them out on an individual level, too, so that's one thing we throughout the other one, was I? What if we did like jobs and take percent? Take a percentage of the money plus put our own money whatever and we actually sponsor like kids from underprivileged neighborhoods to basically if they WANNA be youtubers, or they wanna be content creators or whatever. We. Basically like would hook up with high quality like some video cameras stuff realistically if you gave something like computer and dope camera whatever it's like, they can figure it out. Basically I mean you can probably get the cost down to like you know you probably spend like two thousand, three, thousand, two, thousand, five, hundred to get somebody actually like able to make youtube stuff. That would be pretty cool and I. Don't know we're just sort of like going back and forth thrown these ideas around, and then you could also help them to promote their channel. You could sort of like you know. Like even just the complex. You've had to deal with getting on twitch. Huge pain in the ass, totally understandable that some random kids not going to be the figure it out zone, but we like. Send Yuri or like we go through and help them. Do it I don't know. Set up like maybe courses where you know even simple as video editing or like getting on twitch. I don't know I think some kind of course thing could help not only just individual people, but like anyone watching. You know it's not just. That's a good point. Two Mega Mega. Did Zoom calls with the people that you are sponsoring, but then everybody else could watch or something. You took that and put it on a separate youtube channel something like a good point. I mean I I feel like at the end of the day. Doing Shit to help people out is never wrong like this amazing, but if you're if you're trying to do something that directly is reflecting was going all right now. Then a flake focus on. More of the Like focus on the issue of what's going on. I guess more than like. Run I mean like he did. Do the like I donated to the Minnesota Freedom Fund which. And then I started thinking about I'm like. I, they can't just be bailing on everybody right because it's definitely like people getting arrested that you would think that hopefully they would be able to tell who they would wanna bail out and then afterwards. I did sort of think shit. Maybe I should have done straight to his family. Conflicted because me and my twitter followers raise money for his family's go fund me, but then I thought about him like fluxus gave half to bail out. Protesters because so many people were getting arrested. I. I don't Friday and Saturday is when everything's going down and people were just. Protesting after getting arrested and I don't think about this. This is what I was thinking about. The people who are out protesting and stuff with priors or with fucking in with warrants our and shit like that. Who if they got arrested for this? They're they're not getting out anytime soon. You know and they're going to be sitting now. I have to think about because I'm like, should I? I still got some open cases and shit down. If I go out there and get arrested I might not become back in the day or two. You know the thing I want to know. How do organizations that are bailing people out? How do they differentiate between like you know? We've seen peaceful protesters get arrested, and we've also seen people who are like blatantly doing horrible things like lighting building on fire, and then they get arrested and it's like. Presumably able to differentiate between. It's more yeah. It's GonNa. Be Hard. Call can make in the moment so. Minnesota freedom which everyone was doing to Apparently, they got so much money that they're saying like donate to us like donate to. Different organizations may be in different cities. 'cause they probably like they just so happened like the reason. Why did that was because I? Saw Kalani and a couple other people doing like a train of doing it, and so I was just like. Oh, I assume Kalani can't be possibly fallen for anything stupid so I, did that one, but I mean from their perspective day probably were like one of many charities, and then all of a sudden just got this insane spike, because they just happening viral. Where George Floyd the band. And where the protests I. Spread was like one hundred fifty fuck and cities in America, but it was like forty eight was where they had actually like riots allegedly. A hundred and fifty nationwide, and then also at the ton of other ones like one hundred fifty number a ton more and then globally as well. New Zealand going crazy area Syria. They didn't produce I. Saw Murals Go. It's weird to imagine them even. Around here Berlin awesome shouldn't Amsterdam. It's got a resume. Because you know there's a lot people in new, Zealand and like when I was out in Stralia and stuff you'd have conversations with people I think it's more about the aborigines Australia but I mean it's a very like relatable struggle. There's a lot like them seeing all these different countries seeing people in America rising up and making a difference or whatever is like this. I mean there's some form of racism, even if there's no black people around there, some kind of like wealth, inequality, or whatever like society. Based on race, and even even if there's no black people necessarily like end your direct neighborhood, or like not that many by people you could still relate. Instill see the inequalities shit going on, that's wrong. That needs to be addressed. You know especially because people globally feed off of and love black culture and black movies and music and. You can't just like that stuff and then turn a blind eye towards. fucking black and Brown people getting killed. Yeah. Yeah the disparity there like how to things could be true once I was still dealing with so much of this police, brutality and stuff and also helping. It's crazy. I've seen stuff that. Even in the midst of this. I've seen stuff from this. There is at least as bad as the George Foot like stuff that you never would have thought you would be able. The see in this kind of scenario like. I seen some crazy A police ramming protesters who are just standing there with the cars, the drive-by one. Yeah, ooh! frosty keeps catching police brutality on on his instagram. Live real. Yeah, he's calling to already. It's crazy. Recipes to. The the Cook in New Orleans. They do cooking for the protesters, apparently he. was like. To say he was flagging. Didn't have a permit to be cooking. Stupid Shit, Bro. I seen a dude who confronted some looters, and he just fucking got shot dead on the spot, and there's a guy like no by the fucking by the looters, and there's a guy filming got bleeding out on the ground, and he's just like come on, stay with me and stay with me man. And it's just like holy. Shit and it's like. The scary thing all this weekend. It feels like it's Kinda slow down a little bit now in terms of finding out about something absolutely insane every night. Oh No! Still every day I've been fucking. Even crazier every day. The James James Scarlett who got killed in fucking, Omaha. He was like just twenty two year old kid who got killed by like some fucking. White supremacists like in in Omaha like really yeah during the protest. She's just fucking side. Man is going crazy right now. Yeah, it's madness. Very heated exchange in the DM's about our thoughts on some stuff that's been going on. We're GONNA. Try to keep it a little bit more headed. I guess at this point. I feel like this is how I see it and this is the problem is that? You have. PEOPLE WANNA protest. You have people who are basically like people want protest this police brutality. Yeah, people just WANNA. Fuck the system up period. They WANNA. See everything burn. And then you have opportunists. And the things that the people in the second two categories do gets mapped onto the people who just want to protest or just want to make some kind of difference in like how racist preceding this country et Cetera so. It's very hard, because it's so easy for people in the media etcetera to paint everybody involved in this as basically being you know. Mega violent, and just out of their minds and stuff, so it's kind of you know I don't think that anyone who. was really out there. Marching about this initial 'cause is like the same. People are necessarily like looting random stores on day six. I feel like it's a different salon posted. You know they're trying to say that. You know. the the ladder to the people who are opportunists and or just trying to burn everything. there. How how are they? Representative of all the people protesting these fucking killer? Cops aren't aren't. Representative all cops. You know what I mean. That's why I. I feel like at the same time is site. Yes there are people there to take advantage of the fact that it's fucking anarchy right now, and it's just you know. She's going crazy and they they see lick by. Let's go do this, but. I don't necessarily think that it just boils down to even with even with some of the people that are just like going craziest like you can't really tell them how to protest are how? That that's like wrong. It's like is so much other shit that is wrong. That is happening that they're just like fuck it. I'm going to take advantage of whatever opportunity that I see. And that's something that I could kind of relate to a little bit. You I just think that as non black people. We can't tell black people how to feel or act I just I think that people were just too worried about other shit when the main focus here is that none of that show will be happening if it was not for the brutality that was happening by hand of police that they'd have to face no repercussions for, and there wouldn't be any. Any protest wouldn't be people out in the street to even give the opportunities and opportunity to go and loot. Because when I was watching a video earlier today of like a foot locker van store I think it was in New York and it's just you know fifty kids running up in there and taking everything. And I look at those kids. I'm like dude that is. Every kid that I was like riding BMX way or whatever. That's just like I didn't see anything. Particularly out of ordinary about all those kids those are just regular. Ask Kids in New York. Who see an opportunity in this moment and you know they are frustrated and they are pissed off about the system and the inequality that they were born into and everything, but I do think that there's a big percentage of people that at the end of the day if you could get a free pair of shoes, you know, get a free pair of shoes. I was with somebody who got on facetime with somebody else, and they're like Yo. Check this out. They had like hundreds of pill bottles. Talk. Is that like oh? We hit a pharmacy last night. I was like Oh my God and these are not like. Them. They're like they're not political types of guys. Yeah, they're just if the opportunity is there and reality is, motherfuckers are poor as fuck, and when you look at Gucci Story, it's like how could you possibly feel any empathy for that? When you have nothing and you have to fuck struggle so hard and break the law. Do whatever to just get anything going for yourself TV. Free Promotion that the black community has done for them. You know I'll watch. I'll watch somebody say something about like you know. Some of the like resale stores and Shit like that and they were like. Why do I have to buy my culture back from you? And I was like do thousand plan never even thought of in this like. At the end of the day like business businesses being affected by the is like it sucks. And it you know I. I can't even say that it shouldn't happen because just like. Do what happened to George Floyd shouldn't have happened. What happened to you? Know fucking women being raped in in. Shit shouldn't happen. It's like there's a whole bunch of shit shouldn't happen and it's like. My Nigga at, but you can understand the rage, but then it's also at a certain point you'd have to look at a lot of these things that are happening in your like that is fucked up and I mean Bro I've seen things. I can't even believe. Two lawyers to Brooklyn lawyers who went out the night of the protests, and through fucking Molotov cocktails into cop, cars and blue. The COP cars to them and I'm not out. Shot, they are going to fuck in prison. These are lawyers. Who did this on camera? No Mass. No I feel like a lot I. don't think so I think a lot of people seem to think that this is actually like a free for all and that the cops are not going to give a fuck about what you're doing. It I was just having a conversation with a d. he said he's like after. After the ninety two riots, the cops didn't really like barely anyone got arrested in the moment. They fucking track them down and serve them after the fact and a lot of these fucking feel bad, because there's a lot of eighteen year old kids twenty one year old kids who are not thinking about this, and that's going to be fucking blemish on their record forever not to mention like even if the cops don't. Don't get them right now. It's going to be like Oh. This guy's got something going on five years from now in a photo of fucking merges of them when they were twenty hitting van store, and I mean. Is that going to be like the equivalent of your fucking boss? Finding out that you have you, said the N. Word on social, media type. Shit where it's like you're. GonNa. Get fired because they have. Have, footage that you're doing something many years ago and has why at the end of the day, Bro, you got to be particularly. You gotta be thought out. You have to be moving for the right caused. You gotTa Fuck in. You. Know dishes been weighing heavy on me, rose I. I've been receiving all this different information and not knowing how to feel and I. think that's why I mean you were like. Back and forth because like. Shit I. It was like every five minutes I was gathering some new information, and it's like you know altering how you feel about it and at the end of the day. Like I said like if some some fucked up, shit happened in like you know. My condolences to first of all the family of George floor his daughter, you know his baby MOMS is everybody I know. They're fucking gone through it I seen them protests into I. Think his his. His brother had his daughter on top of his head. And like our, wasn't that Steven Jackson from the NBA. Brother really close friends or something? Yeah, trade. The truth knew him very well to. In Houston you. People, yeah screw. Screwed up click. On Mix Tapes? Crazy there was like five million theater screaming. All the other From what I've seen. Nothing's happened to the killers of. Brianna Taylor. Seven interested. I don't think anything's happened to sean reads. Killers to. Ship. There's so much as a lot of so much. Information that hasn't been properly documented process, and sometimes you know now. Because I'm reading twitter so much and then I'll go and I'll. I'll read a news article afterwards and realized Oh. There's three things in this article. There are completely different than the way that I saw them presented on twitter, and now after having read the New York Times put it into like a more well researched context I'm like Oh. Fuck like I'm reading shit on twitter thinking it's one hundred percent true and then finding out eight hours later. Oh that's one. One thousand percent, not how it happened, and it's a fucking roller coaster. That's how I was feeling just like combating people in fucking instagram all day. It's like they're like. Are You fucking idiot? You don't even know what you're talking about. And I'm just like. Turn your comments off at that point because they're taking away from like the greater cause, and I think that was the whole point, I was just trying to get across to him as like you know like. When they go at the end of the day, this bigger 'cause in than than a store, being looted, or actually one of my friends, says he was out on Melrose and there was a there was a shop owner like with the gun like in I think either in right directly in inside or directly outside of his store. And he asked a guy like. Do you have kids and the guy was like? Yeah, and he was like. Now is your is another person's kids life worth whatever's in your store? And instead of him standing out there with a gun, he fucking just boarded up and went home. But if you bored of talking to rob, US and that, like the main thing that was seen that all these stores are boarded up, are still getting I mean I don't know if necessarily standing out there with a gun. Just saying I'M GONNA kill you if you rob the store which I can respect, even though like in the case of somebody like burner, burners said that he had six armed guards at the cookie store, and that when they started robin it. He told them not to shoot them. Yeah, because it's like 'cause like you're gonNA fucking kill. Fifty people some weed that can be grown in like be back bits of weird decision because it's like. Are you going to lose? I don't know twenty thousand dollars worth the weed and broken glass, etc, and then have a body on your hands, and no fucking murder got. Multiple multi nobody. Nobody's ever GonNa forget that. That happened there. As much as that person like breaking store. Okay, if you break in my store, I'm allowed to shoot you legally whatever? I mean that's a tough decision. Especially, when the whole fucking because you know in that moment like I, said about seeing those random kids in the van store. Those are Raynham fucking. Kids those are kids that. I don't think would be doing this any other day out of the fucking year. I mean, and then they'll also there is this just beyond fucking a lot of professional league hitters? A whole would be doing this on the regular. They're out there. You know so say. Had A friend, who was looting in Santa Monica apparently like. There was a group of people that were like very highly. Skilled and like they had walkie talkies, they had a whole light pro. System that they're going to like lick the stores Oh. Yeah, because I mean motherfuckers are not stupid and especially on day seven people are going to figure it out. Okay, here's somebody I feel horrible for we're talking about. Jason. He's up in Sacramento girl. That got a brand, new baby and stuff. His girls storage just like completely fucked the it's like what she has like a local like vintage shop clothing shop I hope it's a clothes shop and I'm not fucking this up. It is and it's like you know what's going to happen. They realistically. She might not ever open shop again because that damage like all these be. So bad seeing the shops get destroyed a melrose seeing this. Nail Salon Get burnt down. At the end of the day, Dude! These businesses like are not gonNA. Come back like even six months ago and we were on. Melrose is not easy to have a shop in melrose. After the corona virus, it is really hard data shop period, and then after this shit. Street might be a ghost town I saw I saw riff La, which is one of most prominent stores. In Los Angeles so they have two locations. Obviously they have one in San Francisco and one here, and they were saying that they just basically don't even have the inventory or the or I don't think the funds to. basically opened up to. San Francisco store again. They're going to put all the resources back into just opening the home store in La and they also mentioned something that I kept seeing the argument. Was that you know? A lot of a lot of these businesses will be fine because of insurance payouts. They put it. They put they put it into perspective and they said That another another situation where they got looted during a riot, or whatever that they lost a million dollars in a product and they. The insurance probably gave them like two hundred K.. People say oh, their insurance will cover it. It's like pro. You clearly have never really dealt with an insurance claim because you're going to get a small percentage bag. It's GonNa take forever. They might not pay you like you're in the book and Katrina Shit. Dating pay because they didn't have, it was a hurricane flooding. If you have flood insurance that didn't cover it. They'll do anything to not pay you. If everybody's filing insurance claims then all of a sudden, it becomes kind of thing where like Oh, their whole business falls apart, and you might never get anything. And you know I feel especially bad for the resellers like round, too, because you know even if they do get that money, it's not like they're they're. Pieces are like one of a kind vintage like hunted. Extensively, You know I don't know, but I mean again like I'm GonNa keep reiterating in the site. Yeah, you can't get those clothes back. You also can't get life back. Which is why a lot of people are out, even brisket. Today. It's hard to draw a line between like. It's good to destroy local businesses like in their community. That I get discern the Gucci store because at the end of the day like I, mean I'm kind of partially like I wouldn't do it, but I don't think anybody really needs like eight hundred dollars fucking trash sneakers from some fucking Italian designer. That's owned by this mega fucking corporation. Whatever if I would love to see that come out of this, I would love for it to not be cool to fucking give eight hundred dollar sneaker money to these fucking corporations, but. I mean at a certain point. It sucks to see kids or people so disconnected from their own community that they can't look at a store like `round to realize that that's a guy who's really not that far off from where you were at that Sarah store, seeing her get her whole should destroyed even her like she's a young black woman. WHO's got a book store on Melrose. I know it's not easy for her. I don't know anything about that business I know it's not easy especially after the last few months and it's like. The subject I just wish people would have the fucking. Compassion, for those people. And I just wanted to go I'd say this about like. It's specifically with the sneaker stores and Shit like that okay when you're breaking into something. And you only have a very small allotted amount of time. You. You have a very small window to go in. Get you leave right the way that those stores are set up. There's one shoe on the display walls, and the the shoes are in the bat so a lot like a lot of the aftermath. I'm just seeing shoe boxes with one shoe on the ground and shit like that. It was just like Bro. You just ran in just ruin these business for what for you to leave with like one left shoe and I mean that makes no fucking sense to me. I saw I saw video on this like one like hood, l., A. Instagram page, or whatever and it's like dude with very obvious face tattoos. He's wearing a mask, but he's faced. Is He's walking around in the back of I don't want to say is around to. It might have been around, too, but it was like some sneaker. Chevy's walking around in their. Students Shit whatever you've got those face tattoos on your face. Like how like how fucking stupid are some of the people that we've raised like in our society that this dude is doing that like it's like you've done okay I. don't agree with you. Robin the store, but you're putting it out there and making it so unbelievably easy for the cops to get you just because you tight on live. On the story or whatever you just up in their film and him and his boys Robyn. How could anyone be this dumb to go off your your prior pointed. It makes me sad also because. Obviously the protests going on for a important 'cause and People were before before people were protesting, they were making sure to not protest in in places where people of color owned businesses or live so like you know like south central or like. Even Koreatown wasn't a spot, so they specifically did in West Hollywood and beverly. Hills and they kept saying do not loot the small businesses you know the corporations. They're not saying to do it, but if you're gonNA, do it do it to that and it just lost in. The final black lives matter person or persons really like community organizing trying to make a difference etc, who would say like? Yeah I think it's tight that you guys went and did that I. Think the a lot of this fucking conflict. A lot of drama is being fucking revved up by people that really just want to see everything. Burn and if anything this week. Week show as I. Think you're like an anarchist or whatever like? Oh, here's really really good evidence of why you don't want to actually live in anarchy like Berry. Bad things happen, and there's nobody to stop it. I saw a video of a clearly white person with his face. Barely cover. Verdi covered breaking the glass of Muhammad Store Melrose and I was just like. Is Not a black dude doing this. This is not a Nigga apart at the last minute. That's another thing that's really bothering me about all of this. Is that I watched a lot of the live television news, and the only people that through showing looting is like black and brown kids, and they're not showing any of the white kids causing damage at all I've seen little white girls running up in stores and Shit like I've seen. People doing shit like the I just. Have? Never ever seen in my life, and I still can't really fucking around it. Honestly I do want to commend off the all the people who were affected in the moment, but still took the time to say something positive, say something relating back to the message. Bobby hundred says something really touching fucking Luke from round two, says something, really good riff La's says something really good, so shout to all them for you know. Taking the adversity that happened to somebody else and also taking the versity. Happens to them. I mean part of the thing. Is that if you're a local business owners like? You sort of realize that you are basically a casualty and that nobody wanted to destroy your business. It was just people got caught up in the hysteria and stuff but I mean I, still just can't stop being bummed out about it because it just don't see how like when I was watching people trashes designer stories of trash and CNN which I still don't really understand why they're attraction CNN. Because there's like no news network that's more on the progressive side and. Not sure what point they were trying to make. Exactly like how do you not target somebody? Who Actually is your ideological enemy? Still kind of confused about that, but. Yeah. Killer Mike did a speech in Atlanta and he was. He brought up a great point like you know instead of you know trying to beat up these cops or whatever, because that's just gonNa lead you into the system. We need to beat them up politically if you if you're not happy with your, I mean in. They're not happy with the district attorney, so people are out protesting from the courthouse and you know we we got a the elections are coming up and I think some of the states have. What is it pre election or whatever? Schlemiel in voting so everyone. Go sign up for that and. At the end of the day. Like the protests need to happen. We need to get our voices hurt. But. It's also about taking action after that. Then doing something because it's like dishes systematic, it's not one cop. You know all systems is not as not fucking a couple. Bad seeds dislike. Literally taught to protect each other and to fucking not have justice served to them when shit by this happens, and it's like I think the world is finally waking up like this new generation of kids and young people are just finally just tired of seeing the same shit happening over and over and over again without no fucking repercussions and honestly. Even all a lot of fucked up shit has happened is really beautiful to see this many people coming together and taking a stand Bros. it's nice to see people not. Feeling hopeless because I feel like that is coming over for the homeless. The default way of being for young people in this country to feel like you can't make a difference. Nothing you do is GonNa Change anything. There's no reason for you to be involved in the political process. There's no possible rising against the government in a weird way seeing the cops so scared and I'm I'm not an Erica's, but seeing the way like a lot of these having to like relent, and basically be like overpowered by the protesters will really the people. In a way is sort of motivational, because it makes you realize like not necessarily stuck in the system that we're already and like things can happen. There are so dramatic bet. You know you might not like how it looks on the surface wall. It's happening, but we might. Not necessarily stuck doing the same bullshit forever. Definitely strengthened numbers, and there's a lot of us. Yeah Yup. I mean you made a really good point earlier, you said you know just like about feeling hopeless and feeling like there's nothing you can do. I've always felt like that I up until this point I don't think. I don't think I don't think I voted in my whole life up until like maybe the fucking the trump election or Some shit like trump, no I've vote trump. It'll tell us tell us why but I. Don't know it's just it's just crazy. 'cause like Dawson's Shit I always resonated with. It was like I. Felt like my one voice wasn't going to do anything or like Ma. You know I didn't have a platform to speak on at the time and like. You know. And also the fucking. The tweets from trump is just insane, choose. He's he's inciting all this shit. is so much worse turned. was that the the mayor of L. A. Saying who was that? Police chief, who said like the pro but George. Floyd's death is as much on the hands of the protesters. As it is on the cop who killed the now he came out afterwards and said like all the opposite. Oh Man. But what do you mean opposite of what you meant? When that's what you're exactly you're giving the speech. That's probably going to be the most viewed speech. You've ever given in your entire life, and somehow you say that I'm GonNa, be on you so trapped in this world of information I didn't even actually watch it I, just people. Watch the whole thing. Speaking of watching the whole thing I saw scissors say something very similar to what I said to you last week, which was we don't need to see? The violence and watch the play by play. Videos of someone be murdered to want to make a change and be informed but. At the same time. The world needed to see that. George Foy clip the. Whole. going. You're you're completely right? It would have happened if it wasn't a video and it didn't go viral. I'm just saying me as a person who has been in these predicaments with guns drawn me by police being roughed up by police. Is like. Is this a little traumatic? And it's like you know like I. Don't I personally don't need to watch the video of him losing his life second by second for me to feel what's going on and for me to WanNa, take action and donate and post social media and protests, and all that Shit I saw I was saying I saw that one clip like actual clipping dying. I thought maybe like a minute and a half long version and then I realize those eight minute long version where you could really see the shit happen and I was like. Don't I don't need to see that I saw another clip came out. That's like Oh. Look here's proof that they basically beat Georgia before the scene with him on the ground. I was like I'll take your word for it. I don't really I don't want to think more about what was happening at that place. At that time you know which is, that's that's all I was from the safe room I one hundred percent cassette, quick break at really inopportune time to say shut the door sponsor plug play bugging play. Should I, but I'm going to say it right now. I've been really fucking with this thing. you know I needed something to take my mind off the bullshit in the penthouse? Also my girlfriend's. Shit right well all the shit because there is a lot of bullshit to that, you have to be waiting through, and if you want to wade through the plug and play might be for you. Go Man Lincoln description. There we go hopefully. Plug play plays doing something and Give us some donations, thank. You will make sure of such I'm also push I'm having a meeting with puff bar to see if I can get them to. Do something to sorta for. Play hanging cream. Speaking of people pushing? Companies? Do something for. The weekend. Yeah. That's crazy, but also not only did he donated. He also put out public statement and basically calling out apple music, spotify Warner's Sony. All the fucking big big record labels to. You know not just take a part of this blackout. Tuesday let's be quiet for a day. Do I went on south southbound yesterday on my laptop and the soundcloud logo like blacked out and things like it was like blacked-out right, but then you like you just click, and then he just goes back to the regular paper does like what was the purpose of this okay? Do you get that feeling? That do blackened on the southbound logo on this. What the what what do we really need soundcloud to raise more awareness about this? It's like everybody is talking about this. If you're going to do something that's completely superfluous doesn't hurt. Your Business doesn't sell your business now when I see something like Riana and she shuts her fucking defense website down for a day, it might just be symbolic, but that's probably like one hundred thousand dollars. Many thousand dollars etc loss that day. Yeah, YOU'RE GONNA make it up the next day, but I think that that's a good statement and actually does something actually mean something? You know even when I donate it I'm like okay. Okay this at first, I was about two thousand dollars I'm like it feels like it has to hurt a little bit. You know it has to be enough that you care. You know it's like you have to I think part of the Black Square thing like even before people started fucking denouncing and stuff I'm just SORTA. Kinda, one of the first things I thought about to feels like the easiest thing for you to do like especially when people who weren't speaking up and had nothing to say about the whole situation. Then Tuesday come around. They post a fucking black picture like a Black Square and I'm going to like this. Is this is me being? And in solidarity, and I'm like Nigga. You're already silent. You didn't say anything you know. Especially these like influencing young people who use black coach, the most they fucking making take talks to rap music. They fucking dressed like black girls have the hair in braids and all this shit, and it's like when some real shit is happening. You have nothing to say you, WanNa. Post a black square on your and a lot of these white people that I see like cooking like they basically taken this thing as like. Like this creative writing assignment to be like, Oh let me just go on camera or get in my instagram cobb caption and just tell you how not racist I am in as many words as possible, and it's like a lot of times I'm like. Wow, this is so obvious to me that you have never really been around any significant amount of by people because I feel like a lot of the by people on Earth with look what you've written here and be like Holy Shit what your intentions are! are in the place, but you need to calm the fuck down fall back, but this is not your like like. You were just not in a position to be given us a fucking lecture in the caption that you have life experience. You haven't spent any time around black people. You don't go out of your way to surround yourself by. Don't know anything about the Culture Zach. Apply list of me to to some extent I. Get it. No, no, what I was going to say even to touching your point. Point about the their intentions being good at that point Monday. Get your attention aren't good because you're literally just doing this a self preservation and self righteousness to make yourself look good, so at that point is your intentions aren't even good anymore. And all like Oh, what a coincidence that you've never said anything about how racism bad in your entire fucking life, and then at the exact moment where the entire fucking culture is talking about nothing else all of a sudden. You have a motivational statement Megan's like. I mean it's just like as white people especially in a moment like this. You really need to be able to look at the game. See what's going on I know that like said your piece. Make it clear that you're not a trump supporter. You're not on that side of the aisle and then maybe just fall back. Maybe don't need to the creative writing assignment on twitter every day. Maybe you should just. Amplify other people's voices that have something important to say. Yeah, I mean I I definitely seen a lot of people making A. Really strong positive statements that are appreciate it, and especially like some of the the business owners and ship, but at the end of the day. That's kind of like Monday. Good. That's what you literally have to do like the view are smart and. You know like you have to pick a side. Basically at a Lotta companies, instead of just feels like. Oh, you're scared. You're scared and that's why. Black business oh or being labeled. If you stay silent during this time, and you don't fucking take a stance against this. People are GonNa remember that forever, and they will not so support to your business. They were not fuck with you and you won't get a fucking cosign from anybody people anymore. If you if you didn't speak out and say something positive, so yeah, so okay so I'm I'm totally with you. Guys on the people that just do this to save face or or or this and that or right their creative essays, but like what exactly are they supposed to do because it's like damned if you do damned if you don't for them, you know maybe you as a white person. Can you help them to like? What should they do? I? Mean I definitely think there's a lot of value in making it clear. What side of the fucking earlier on I? Just think you know at a certain point. Don't WanNA. See this fucking random tiktok kid right in a fucking mlk speech and his caption. Because you don't need to do all that like mega clear where you're at and just you know, it's like you just don't. You don't need to give a lecture on something you know nothing about it ultimately just doesn't really. Look Right. It's like I. I I've just seen a lot of stuff. Cringe, you see this one kid. This white kid who like clearly went to the fucking protest to make this. Video of himself. I was just like Oh. By far the worst one seen somebody like white instagram bitches same. Shit Let's texting each other like. Let's go protests on my God. What are you aware? This girl that we know that I didn't even think about it like that, but she was like looking Ohio high was like Oh this is mar protests fit in like bubba. She was just which makes no sense. Makes Sense because you know people who are going to wear, say skimpy outfits or whatnot. Tear like you. WanNa have your whole body covered, so you should not go out and. Cute quarter profits crazy. One of a homegirl got arrested, who was not protesting, who was just downtown her car park downtown? She was walking to her car in the cops, grabbed her, and threw her into a group of other people and my group group arrested them and left them on the bus for five hours, and she said while she was on the bus like handcuffed. They were playing like loud rock music. All the lights turned off and that they were just. For fucking hours and they didn't let them off. The whatever she has, the buses are looking Goon Scott Arrested in downtown on Saturday and Hugh. Live streaming the whole thing. I was like Jesus. Christ livestream you. He was arrested I. Don't know he's on the bus. I don't know. On the bus. He wasn't handcuffed. Zip. Zip Videos like people being like this is how you get out Zip. Zip type he was on. My stormed the bus though from my from my many pairs of off white sneakers. I know how to work as many pairs of shoes. Have you ever have you owned in your life? I mean a couple to know how to work zipped now, also not. On the topic of off why I'm not into all the donation shaming at all, that's facts, but at the end of the day you gotta realize like okay. I'm the. I'm the type of person I'M GONNA look at it from all angles right so i. see it from the angle of him being Mike. I am. A Virgil being like I guess participating in a challenge of like you know like a train of i. o like match my donation. He thought it was going to be taken. Fifty fifty like he's basically saying a lot of his fans might do fifty, so he's trying to get them to do which is the which is completely understandable what I feel like. He did not speak up enough before that. I feel like he was very outspoken with the the round to Sean Witherspoon store situation and he was just he was very outspoken with that, and then you like post donation of fifty dollars in this life I'm GonNa, keep it to version which you bro. Off like you could have a little more or if you. He claims that he the. He did another donation that was way bigger, but I don't think he posted it until after, and it's like. Apparently He. Twenty thousand, which is beautiful, which is beautiful, but that's the problem with this fashion dudes that live in the fucking clouds and they just they don't pay it. Fashion do think just like once. You just reach a higher because like we could pull back old statements of like rocky, saying the same thing of him being like like I'm I've being soho IBM pairs like these like I. Don't like these issues. Don't affect your life. Look like Little Wayne Sandy. Racism doesn't apply to him. You know so. It's like it's just rich nigger problems when you get to a certain level that you are not looking into the. Like. And to his credit, you know Virgil. It's awesome if he doesn't spend that much time on twitter, so he didn't like immediately. Anticipate how that would be viewed for sure for me I spend enough time on twitter that I know already seen people getting shamed for not doing enough so I could told you that that was going to happen. Granted! It's nice to be virtually Orissa's fuck and you don't have to necessarily know exactly what's going on the Internet, and you still WanNa. Make your piece known, but I seen him. He clearly is not like super. Hang attention to politics because he. There was another thing that I saw him say. Who are the new young thinkers that can do for politics what we did to streetwear with? Op White Pyrex, and whatever and I'm like Bro like. This hurts my head. Even think about what the fuck you think you're talking about. Like who are the new thinkers that are, but they were pulling pictures of him in his whole like family inches just like those they were cooking. This is his wife though that white woman. I met it but those photos. For his. In the Mo- is just like Oh, no man, all making like Virgil fifty dollar, bill, shirts and stuff. Keep it of to vert. That's one of the better means came out all this. I mean not gonNA live. Hilarious. Reason to stay off social media right now like like if you are somebody who is unless you're one hundred percent share that what you're posting is save then. You. You should be very very careful. Karen Civil and Virgil both for for many reasons. Should be like heroes of the fuck, no telling anybody who should be the hero whatever he said, who cares civil in Virgil, both like extremely successful people within the black community. Everybody's you know proud of their success I would assume excetera. They both have managed to become targets by just being a little tone deaf throughout this, but you know what's crazy especially with like someone like Virgil okay. How mini Bro. Half Evil raise like what like seventy K. or some crazy shit like that? They raise hell of money by JUST DROPPING OT shirt. They already drop and and re of re putting out and donating one hundred percent of the proceeds to. What our relations. Bailout beautiful. I've seen so many other brands like I. saw fresh Jive a release a shirt that I have says black black is not a crime with like some black hands, an and in handcuffs and a lot of people coming up with new designs and shit like that they would have been so easy for him to drop a fucking. Off Wipe. Political Shirt, whatever I duNno fucking off by ZIP tie and donate the proceeds from that and post that. Yeah, and you would have gotten no slack I mean. If, you. Don't like an emphasis. What I was saying earlier about like white influence kids and Now. It'd be a great time for you to not say that much, but do a significant donation. Because then you're not grandstanding, and you are doing something that will have an a material difference you know. I think that that quite often, but then if you find yourself like that one TIKTOK. Kid like you went to the protest. You got arrested on purpose so that he have A. You see the photo him with his hands bound his back in the cops. The police officers to put him in. Doctor Dot what it said on twitter I mean you can only believe what you read so much, but I believe that that that Colbert there I don't know who the fuck is I. Don't know if he actually did donate or if he has any kind of history of doing good things, the community whatever, but like that's the definition what you should not do, make video that makes you look like you had this really sexy fun. Cool protest experience. Find should not be tied in with. That's yeah. That's how. My mind but I. Yeah, in that in that moment like if you do something that doesn't actually have a positive effect, but makes you look really cool and dangerous and shit on your TIKTOK. Yeah fuck off and also that song he used. That was a big part of what pissed me off to us. Don't don't don't don't don't. Go Away speaking of songs. Shutout to his family. David David Gweat. Own. Joe. L. K. Makes. A member has your shirt EDM K.? I know that'd be fire rather than listen as now as a idiom legend idiom producer medium DJ, who has played most worried investor product. Good friends with David Greta. How did you how did you? How did you feel about that? Okay? First of all for anyone who doesn't know, speak okay. Going can can I get it offers for any. For anyone who doesn't know? David, Gwenda Guetta Greta. Whatever you said, he is a very prominent EDM DJ. Who decided to go through with the livestream that he was already doing? Already, planned, and he spoke about George Floyd. He gave a shout-out to him his family and then he proceeded to drop the EDM mix that started with like a Martin Luther. King I have a dream speech and like just went into. Blah Blah Blah. That's the thing is that when if you have something? You're good at right now. It seems appropriate. I'M GONNA. Take the thing that I'm good at I'm going to do it for a good. But maybe not idiom saw like that to me, baby, this is the proper form is is just so many other ways. You could have went about that. You could have just stopped. A whole string per second did a moment of silence. You could have done anything anything anything, but that's. Have that performance book, and then he just he didn't like. Do mlk one a remake. See did a fucking. He gave the money. From the chair there we go and did his normal songs that people actually like that makes sense. It's beautiful. Yeah, and he also like a black leather jacket and stuff which I thought was tastefully didn't have as usual crazy drip went a little more tasteful. Respect that also gun is is black, and like that changes things a lot to. His hold his whole little shoutout to the family and shut out to his family. It was just awful to see on honestly. Like should he have known better, or should he not have known but? People just don't okay. This is a problem. Some people just don't know because they don't have anyone disease from America. I don't think so. They don't have anyone block around them. They don't have any black people in places of power around them, maybe their manager, or even their label exact, or whatever, and so they can't tell them like. Don't fucking do this. This is tasteless and wrong. If you live in a bubble where everybody thinks that you're this great, DJ everywhere you go, people are just showing you love and saying you're great. Great you're the best DJ in the world. You like you. You're not really in contact with the fact that like most people like myself think that actually no EDM sucks and We don't give a fuck about this and please don't tie it into an important social movement. Maybe just like like he's. He's somebody I would much rather he in that moment have done his normal, said, not mentioned anything, Floyd, and then none of us would be talking about it because we would have ignored it just like every other performances or or or make a tasteful statement tasteless donate tastes was statement and donate and then leave it alone. Shouting out his family, and then dropping a fucking I have a dream emo EDM. REMAKES was fucking insane. And you know it's funny as of India racism with that, he didn't really get that much heat for that. Because it's like the people don't have enough bandwidth to really process all the crazy shit that's happens. In. In in hindsight, it's like it wasn't that bad on the he did it on purpose like. He wasn't trying to be addicted. Nothing like it wasn't that bad. Whatever, but it was hilarious that he thought the doubt that was. Brilliant. This and don't do stupid shit like again. I don't think he learned from because I don't think I really saw any crazy back like the most ourselves like the virus, we of the video. And then it was just like I can't believe. This was a good idea or something like that it was. It wasn't like we need to cancel. David David Guetta or whatever? Went by a roller for sure I'm GONNA pull up Karen civil photos, so it was hilarious. Oh! Yes, so Karen. Civil was wearing the shirt with the guy's face on it and one of. The cops faith the COP's face on. It said like he did that Shit, whatever at the end of the day I'm a Nigga, who owns very controversial shirts and shit like that and just like I. Don't think you really need to wear the face on your shirt necessarily, and let's is like defacing his face. Glorify well I mean I know she's not trying to glorify but anything that makes him you know there's like the whole thing with the school shooters where you like. Don't say the names of the school shooters, or whatever because you don't want to make them more famous I don't know that this cop necessarily like wanted to be famous, but it just seem on a shirt. Really Oh look. David Greta should know death no better. His Ex wife is black and they have kids. Close. Comrade of mine just. Yeah I. Don't know there's something about. David ex wife is black, and they have kids together, so it's like he should be relatively tapped into the bug experience. Has Black kid well. Maybe that's why he felt like he needed to speak out, but just the EDM. I have a drink I have a dream remiss. It's probably think that idioms tight. Wife probably thinks that. He some kids out there. Karen civil off white socks with sandals. Who Bag who cares about her fit? Though the whole famous part of it, too, I think people. Can't canceled Karen Karen Civil. She's on where pretty hard they're trying to cancel. Because she was wearing off white because Virgil donated to too little money, so they're trying to before or after the birds. Trying to wrap it up more because she's wearing off white and I'm just like negative. Why are you still a brand I was like popular that people still own clothes of I would urge more unity in general I would say maybe virtual. Did something goofy? Maybe cancel a world weird shirt. Maybe let's just like you know. Given the benefit of the Dow clearly can't cancel black people right now for fucking nothing. It seems it's such a good time to not cancel. People who maybe don't need to be canceled because there's just so every day you see different cop killing someone doing something fucked up. It's kind of like. Let's just hone in on that. It's so much easier to pick apart the people that are in your community you know. Yeah and Blasi told me that Jason something. Pretty significant about like we're so quick to like cancel. Individuals like artists, or let's say Karen civil or whoever Virgil, but it's like we need to cancel these big corporations, and and take a stand against them like people. Wendy's donating whatever million to trump's reelection campaign, and I don't know we need to make a change. I've always wondered. Why did not support its own more in the sense of with just the clothing thing like how is it like Gucci and Louis are that like number one thing that people are wearing, and then there's like countless rapper owned clothing, brands or streetwear brands are owned by people in the community and stuff that just don't seem like they get the support, and they shrivel up with a couple of years. It's like now. People are sharing those messages like people are saying for sure support this company because they are actually doing something really. This is of your culture and that's like. The. Thing is like think about how popular in the early two thousands of the rap on brands where and how much money they made, and how could not leave your house without like if you don't have rockaway? R- if you didn't have Fubu gets back in the day. If you didn't have Sean John Rock, aware you know fat farm. Some of these like brands like you. Weren't it like you were out of the loop? If you didn't have some of those brands and that time the site, yeah, a lot of that has been lost, but also at the same time though you got like. off why and even I don't even know I don't agree, but like loan she'll that dozer black owned VP. Vp Virgil is so important because this is a black dude who started his own brand made. That should so pop in basically start and fits in that world. He started one brand elevated to another brand started another brand. basically made it like high fashion off is like almost like one hundred percent in that category then goes and fucking. It's this the biggest job that you can imagine anybody fashion houses. Yeah, and that's like that's why for me. It's like the job that Kanye. West was trying to fucking. Was that a trap video? Basically, it wasn't. IT WASN'T A. Video someone else. I was watching his video city. It's it's super. I, it's super creepy. Because I thought that only instagram and facebook are listening, but I think youtube listening to now because every time. Tell me to watch. Whoever the fuck it like my page L.. Keep videos on the way here. Oh, my God! Many ops popped up my fucking suggested today like this on on Youtube. When my all my fucking ops dislike, this random shit like just random ass. Shit has been popping up in my suggested, but shift from years ago. My what the fuck is going on now they really they really are collecting data on everybody, and just throwing it into into your algorithms crazy you ever like see proof of it every day, but when I'm with my nephews and watch watching mad pepper pig, and you go home taking your guys stroll past Matt have a big. Video China. Rock. I was I was talking to this girl in my. We're talking about rolexes or whatever, and like this, like Rolex ad on your ground. Bro, no, no. She sent me to add on her thing like the next day she was like she's like literally never even looked at a rolex before I've never typed in the word rolex before like I. Don't know nothing about them and she was like crazy. We're talking about relics. Relics his last night and I. Wake up in the first thing I see on my my far-fetched at or whatever I mean. WE SPEND MONEY TO RE target ad so that if you like going the no jumper site and look at a product, you don't buy it and then like you might be on Instagram the next day and CNN ad for that product on instagram like that's how it's able to do that. It's able to cookies. And they took the email you hate. You missed us in your cart. Yeah, WHOA! Hateful emails almost bought a jacket before and then just seeing that jacket for like six months and. It was like a five hundred dollar jackets, so they're willing to spend a shitload of money to try to get the Udub I, that product. Little do they know that if I didn't by then definitely buying later because every day that goes by it becomes less and less drippy from my perspective. Yeah to. Don't you feel like? You. Know if you have something new before everybody wears it or you have like you know the dope thing like that's I've you close is like if I have it before anybody can rocket and it's tight if I've seen five people wearing it, and and that's how that's how I feel about like you know. Some new pair Jordan's that comes out, and even if it's like exclusive hard to get, you got a raffle or whatever it's like my Nigga go on Instagram and see ninety stories of. Different people wearing them bought them or trying to get them in. It's just I I would much rather go, and finally the nostalgic ones like costs more money are harder fine. You gotta take care of them. Really and it's like more of a thing than for me to just go. Try to cop the new. That just came up for the first time. I ever. Ever bought a Gucci Jacket and spend whatever eighteen hundred or something on some rather than with it so much worse I, saw Fuzi wearing it no offense to Fuzi, Fuzi, De had it then J. Cole warrant in a video, and it's not the fact that Jake Hallway. It's the fact the Jayco war as like making fun of rappers from like what video he's like. To be a wack rapper. That was the Jack. Of that role. And, just seen like to I went to rolling loud to people wearing it I'm like that's eighteen hundred dollars for this miserable. fucking experience if I'M GONNA to. Would you check it out I? Want to ever see anybody wearing it ever know exactly. That's how I felt on a very small miniscule level about these these fucking metallic Purple Four. Is that just came out? And Basically they dropped these different. All White Jordan's with like the hint of different colors and. The different colors dropped in different areas in different areas of the world so like the purple came out in the US I think they have like orange pear. They came out in like Australia and somewhere else. And then they had a green pair that came out Anorak pair. Anyway so I was just seeing everybody posts, these fucking purple pair, and on my damn like I wanna, I, and I was like I don't want those 'cause like ninety. F- motherfuckers got them on. Ninety like got a lot. A lot of people have them on so anyway. This do from Australia that I know that sell shoes is now sending me the pair. That didn't even release in the US so I'm going to be driven on with the. Overseas I remember Tom Another Gucci. Jacket I bought the black home with the fucking tiger on the front of thinking the Red and green stripes and. It was hard, but I got it before I. Even got a chance to put it on. Look instagram and I see Gucci Mane and little pop wearing it that day today even got no separately. two-thirds of Gucci Gang I hadn't even been able to take it out of my trunk yet. So yeah, I am by no more Gucci some of that Shit is timeless, and like older pieces is like you know it's just like like like. An all over Prank Gucci. S Oh man at the end of the day. That shit is wack. Fuck, don't want to see her an independent. If you were to show me probably any Gucci fit from the nineties, I would probably think it was hard. No matter way heart. It's way harder even. Three four years ago. If you were to just pull out a random GUCCI, fit, that was enormous foot for years ago. You probably think it looks kind hard now because you're not so sick of seeing it, but then I. Don't know there's like a certain time period, because if you bust us some. Gucci from two years ago and today should look corneas. Like oh man. Asked. The Tigers and all that just looks like to add hardy and like cheap. The problem with Gucci now is that they're so over the top. The designs are so. That it's the hell easy to place them date wise whereas I feel like in the nineties and stuff. They weren't so over the top. That's why you need somebody like Dapper Dan come through and make the crazy as Gucci and Louis designs that they wouldn't make now. They do it and they put all kinds of wacky. That's why I think Gucci and Louis Or. I mean they'll always be able to do something to figure out business or whatever but to me. But it's like it's like all the brands are doing that. 'cause it's like Ev. All the information is so accessible at an so like widespread easy spread. Even the Dior Air Jordan one that. Dexter Got Dr Georgia. All. My r-dexter got the Adriana Fuck. Video of famous Dave's. So now. He got a box into his house of off White Jordan's. off-white Shit Bob all these different shoes and he pulls out these. You know like her bag right there. Your, there's a there's a pair of Dior. Jordan's out of not released it right. And Dexter is like flexing on instagram. All they just crazy cartoon voice. Fake, they were so fake. They weren't just like fake like Bro. They were like so fake, and it was like it was just so funny because he was just trying to flex like Oh my God dexter got. Outta was still feeling himself. Fun Back Down Now I. think that that's what it didn't translate. Was that like? Now it just seems like Bro. You're just like flexing these fake as anti alley shoes. Like what's it like? GimMe, another place that sells fake stuff I wanNA. Keep saying. Fancy Alley Chinatown. Just, I don't know it was just like the worst bootleg version of these shoes and he was like is like you. Yourself too much point. You're flexing all these fake ass, but that's no. I come in probably didn't notice probably what you made. The video put Lausanne famous and Sorta like a similar category where they had a wave. They didn't really keep it up to him. You put them in the same period and then the. Much more of a wave. He had more sleep like, but he never had that one. Say, that might be a differentiator. That's the difference, but then. The thing is is that they very like enjoyable social media characters when they were super. Energetic, and everything, but then eventually the drugs kind of dig a toll on you and eventually people don't really WanNa Watch. Just being on doping drugged up. To fact man I don't know just. On all my young black brothers out there man, not lasagna. Talking. Young Man I. Don't know man. I wish I just wish the best for everyone man I wish. Is You know, get it together and stop flexing Victor Stock Yeah now, but would you protest figures? Oh my God. Yes, actually. Okay. Okay, you know what's funny though I thought about that, because decks is one of the niggers that like he likes whereas like mix match, choose all the time on purpose. Really Yeah, like he'll have two different. Jordan's like two different. Completely covered tellers are two different vans like two completely different pairs, and that was the first thing I thought of and I was like what are you unique? Is that are looting round to and like you get like shoe off the walk? What are you? GonNa do this famous dixie is. is where another pair I saw people running out with shoe boxes from running shoe stores, but then you gotta think that there's a lot of left side. There is a lot of shoot just on the wall. That I know. Nick is just grab. You want to get. You gotta go all the way back and then find time do that. You could be bust. I used to work at a shoe store. You go back there to find a bears shoes. He could take awhile. GonNa be fucked. Well see I mean. I was about to say well. That's a good part. This is not good at all, but. Most of those places that the really expensive shoes are in the glass together in a pair so it's like. If you got an early, you probably got. The Hammer to good shit. There's so much. Described as riot porn. Because it's you're like watching it, and it's like it's super thrilling to watch it for a few seconds, but ultimately you don't really gain anything from it, and just sort of these you feel hollow or whatever, but I mean normally like any. There's probably been a thousand clips over the past week. That would have been. The most viral clip of that week if they had happened in any other week, yeah, people running the white. Dude that sandals who runs out of the foot and shoe store and his excuse, the cops that throws the boxes. COPS looting. So many pitchers of easy I feel like a lot of the fake news. I'm going to be totally honest with you. I don't think the cost the bricks there either I think antique is out there putting the pallets of bricks. Those because wanting to be destroyed as where it doesn't make sense to me I. Feel like the people people want to who want the riots. Are the ones putting those bricks there? That's just my, but it's like there's literally like tow trucks it should draw. Debris so like. Every single WHO's paying you Antiga I'm just going full Fox News and blame everything on TV. Jesus Christ. But I don't know no, but I've seen a lot of. Suspicious to there was a clip. That's like watch this cop putting this this weapon into this guy's hand once he's already on the ground because I found like a buzzfeed article pretty early on that every day, though but they plant drugs. Specific Clip with mad people filming. It would have been pretty surprising to see him do this. And then it's like boom like there was like this buzzfeed fucking article during that they were like updating consistently of like look at all. These fake things that are happening and like obviously buzzfeed is pretty much in the category of like wanting to make the protesters look good, unless they absolutely don't have to mega mega leftist, but there's just so much stuff that has been sorta like like painted in one way or another that I just I really recommend that people do their research because I've seen tweets. Hundreds of thousands of tweets, and then like you really look into it and it's like. Oh yeah that didn't happen the way that they. Look okay so back to the break thing. How do you explain them? Being dropped off by government like machinery? If I saw that I would like to see that. Yeah I'm not. I'm not saying that I know everything I'm just saying that I think that a much more likely caused is the people who want the city destroyed would drop that off. It feels like no matter what you think of the cops. The cops probably don't want. You. Should they wanna like because that way. If there's like all these bricks, being thrown at the cops and light. That's like more incentive for them to like people. And eventually like. fucking martial law just that, but I don't think most cops want where we're at right now i. don't even think like a lot of cops want this. I think most cops would rather go to work and have a nice safe easy day where they don't have to get. Maybe you get the punch somebody around a little bit, but you don't really you know. You have to give somebody a parking ticket. Whatever make them cry. I don't think most cops really like want. Danger! Police departments are making the decision. It's the people and it's not like the police department are are pulling up in fucking dropping off the bricks by hand, but also I think I saw video of that video of the alley in the alley like the big. The big black police truck rely gathering. Brixton's just like what what is this all the like undercover cops? I've I haven't looked too much into that and I don't know. That was weird. They're trying to say that I heard that. The under the undercover cops like sneaking into the protests in just like causing mayhem and and making people like. To loot and fucking accuracy and videos of like it'll be people walking, and they'll be like Iran Ah away. Will bust through the crowd like bus window or some shit, and then just like run away, and they weren't going into the store and looting or anything, but they kind of started it off, and then everyone else like joined in after. I think there's a lot of people that want to see everything. Burn just WanNa see destruction and mania, then that's the weird thing. Is that when I think about how I would've been acting if I was nineteen or twenty, and all the shit was going on. I'm not so confident that I wouldn't have. been now I know I probably would have been I was thinking the same thing, but I'll be probably running out the store with repairs vans under my arm, and it's kind of weird to think about because in that way. I very much like epithets will probably align people watching this who think that the looting kinda tight that they would probably be there looting if they had the chance whatever? I get it a young man thing like. Jeff said that exacting and I was and I thought about it to my. Man Maybe if I was twenty one and I didn't have this relationship with the people that work around two or at any stores, or whatever I probably wouldn't give a fuck and I. Probably would've would've went. As the muscle intention was to go. Do something like that. You know yeah. I was thirteen fourteen fifteen sealants CDs from stores that when I think about an hour, I'm like wow. That's like a really legitimate. Business that really contribute star in the community where I came from. It's not necessarily a big corporation is just like the local music store. And I was robbing that shit for CDs because you know what the fuck that I care. I didn't have that I couldn't empathize with a grown man who owned a business that didn't want to be losing the CDs the same way all this is robin round two. They don't give a fuck they. They're not thinking about what they're actually doing this somebody and even if they did like know exactly what they're doing, it's like whatever some some white dude. You're never going to get to meet. You'RE GONNA feel bad from No. A lot of people aren't gonNA. Feel bad for him because they're just not. They're not. Their life. You know that's facts and like you know. I think that's why the whole Virgil Dean got like very misconstrued because like he was super speaking are super passionately about it and I. I mean in a way I. Understand because like you know I know those dudes I know fuck Nj Busey. No, Lugano Chris Fucking Hell People that work there and work for them and I know how much. Time and effort in work that they put into share whatever, but at the end of the day is just A. It's just a casualty of something. That's way bigger than shoes enclosed in property. All that you know so. Yeah Man, and like I said I. Really respect a Luke for speaking out and saying something very very early on and Just you know I would just encourage you know the people watching this instead. It's like if you have friends who are. Out there, raising havoc I would just say you know feel feel awful if you can try to. Turn out to ruin the the business of somebody who, at least has a role you know. When you see somebody robbing a liquor store, you know I for the liquor store owner, but you know the liquor store is maybe not somebody you can empathize with. You argue that the liquor store maybe has a negative effect on society as a whole payday loan place hourly Iran when you run up in there, but. They have cash is laying around. Yeah I don't think. that. They probably have like a eight hundred unsafe that you probably wouldn't. Get into. People can couldn't really stealing all the replicas where the shit that was in front of all the real shit was safe. I heard so people run up in there and take the replicas. That's what I heard. Damn, so you'll be flexing with a fake rolex. A lot of people would be totally fine with that. I mean probably right. Looking crazy right now. Maybe the drank price will finally come down. I've been hearing. That has been going even crazier after this row. Mad Heights on the streets now like not that many. Probably is what think about it. Though everybody has the same mentality of like Oh, there is no lean right now. There's probably a drought and we're GONNA up charge. This I was talking to this Nigga last night. He was like me. I don't want to, but I think about the pay one sixty align. I know people that. A couple years ago swore that would never pay seventy align, and now they're paying one fifty alive by. A pints a walk for two thousand. Plus you know it's like activists prices for regular during. Let's fucking retarded row. It's a whole new world. Get on my act of visa. Just know. Anybody who got the Mexican drank him. I mean we probably won't be able to get it in right now right well. We probably won't be able to tell because we're not like the most experienced. Aug. Years Old. You SIP drank. Is Lit. You have the faintest festivus. You looking at me. Staring directly through is. Are you off. Defend Jews definitely not. They're. All you gotTA. Do Is Simpson par drop a Perkin. Isn't the PARKA discontinued to right. I'm just talking shitty. Containing because once time I. Don't do that kids. I was joking. One time I called out somebody during I fucking call them out because I was telling him I got no. Shit and I sent a clue. Yes it was saying. Pouring No actually it was someone else and I was pointed out. Well, you do, but I said the DUB dub like now that's par like he knew immediately from just seeing drip out of the bottle. That's a real drank man right there. Was Par and he's like it's I like it ain't fake. Like. The tone is last night. That was when I found out about part, but I heard the. Fake. Fake. Flexing link loves par apparently unlike they're always like. Where's the par and then like I? Don't know they're just tagging this like Pau Account. That's just like a random person, loss or something. It's really funny. If you really love drank was if you really love drank, you're going to be joined in during no matter what kind of drink it is as long as it ain't green or as labile drinking green, but as long as it ain't total trash, even if you're an experienced drinks, shit is so expensive so hard to get now like motherfuckers Bucci but they are probably not boosting. Before low pump dubs so, me lean. Lucky. And his new album really. That's fire I introduced up too low pump. Can I you guys are listened to? or I enjoyed it. I got into a closer but I in general. Honestly I'd be happy. To John. But. He was out there, protesting, doing shit and not promoting the. Album which would any other rapper would have been doing? Some other rapper would have been woke boat. Some rapper would have been with the bullhorn. Man We really need to do this also little both three out now. He didn't. Very classy of him Bro, especially in a world where everybody is, everybody thinks that they're fucking. Are. Are I a fucking certified specialists and they think that they're about to analyze the first week now. Why is that a thing now? Everyone care about first week number. Twenty years. Fifty. Fifth. Street cared, but I don't think people is. Not as my space posting about fucking. Road soldier boys first week numbers. Not a thing, the thing about it too is that it is looking pretty irrelevant like it does. Tell you something now, but we also know that like there's a lot of ways to be a popular or successful rapper without selling lot album sales so. which is I, mean which is low Yati literally like I enjoyed that album so much, and I thought it was fires work. I'm not saying all fire, but like I definitely have. At least five to six songs on repeat. From the Abbiati was the king of saying some bad shit, and then taking a ride back like bought some walk just to. Just to keep talk. About some heroin, just keeping them up in my closet I mean talking about. Walk unless you drink and walk Yati is something you. WanNa tell us I, mean he? He probably just sitting on. One One guy one pint. Near nose. They one guy one jar. Fuck Nawab. Squatting and there's a glass jar and he's going in his ass and it breaks what I'm doing. This episode is I'm not entertaining. You know Bush maybe not any Bush you bring up just ignoring you this episode. That's all I have to say how disrespectful you think. Inc Connor Georgia's a porn is Dallas crazy. He deleted that he wrote four Raven I'll delete. I couldn't believe it because I had already had the. With a couple of different people in hip media where a couple of different people hate me. It was like you saw the porn thing and I was like yeah. I'm not pleasant because it seems. Disrespectful or whatever and they all agreed, and then in connor was the only person of the. Media person like the associates I. mean. Just like. His whole his whole. Brian is kind of. Sicko the sick. You finally found something that maybe people didn't control about, I guess. It's like. I think. I think he just tried to like you know. He's just trying to like on Arbor. I'm not excusing especially. Lame he was just. Is just like kind of his personality though like. He's like he would. He say he said like? Recipes to my Sicko. What did he do was based on? Your Brand They also tried to. I was like seeing the Santa, he was intoxicated. He was having on the system or some shit like that. Because you're intoxicated, has nothing to do with the fact that you deserve to die by hand police for literally no reason I mean if you're off spoiler that means that you're going to be even less likely to be able to put up a fight, and we all saw that video, and we all know that like he could have been on any drug and it wouldn't video like it doesn't matter. He was being handled by a bunch of dudes who are bigger than well not bigger than NBA were clearly like overpowering him. It's like He. Doesn't matter if he took talking and have it in your system like he could have done a little sun like a week ago, and he's still got a little bit in your system like it doesn't mean that he was fucked up at that moment. It's such a bullshit way to discredit the story. Reports that his family did a private investigation with A. What are they called? Analyst I. Don't know the the coroner. That immediately discredited the initial report that was put out that said that he did died a heart attack or Like. Who on his neck? That is insane. Also what the fuck is going on outside. Right actually. Driving around lane just seeing like army, tanks and people with a are just like. There's also like just think about this bro like. Man Honestly Bro like recipes for that man, but Brahimi literally his death. Is probably like. Changed the world. In like? A scale has never been seen before from something like this. It's crazy to Ahmad arbitrary thing, too, because that was very much a part of the lead up to this like. The Fedex incident with those guys on the parking lot with that that I interviewed and stuff. It's like there was a lot like this should did not just happen. And motherfuckers got mad. There was a lot of bill that's been happening. It's happening. It's just so fucking everyone from like Sandra Bland to like. I think underrated part of it is the coronavirus because everybody at home go? Black people disproportionately have lost their jobs through this disproportionately affected because by people tend to live in areas where there's worse pollution that makes them more susceptible to the coronavirus. More like were more likely to have jobs. There are essential workers have to go to work, etc, so it's like you're more exposed right you. Have you have a lot of people that are more likely to be affected by this plus like everybody's home. Everybody's off work. Everybody's kind of pissed off. Everybody's got energy. Everybody's got time May WANNA go out! Like and especially for 'cause like this, they're going to go into. The protests hadn't been to a club in three months haven't been to the barn three months. ETC Haven't been what restaurant in three months so it's like. The that? Answer and that tension had go somewhere, and it ended up being directed at basically like one of the worst murders. We've seen of innocent men in a long time, I mean. I wonder where else it could have gone. It seems like that's probably the thing that was. That would've set it off. It's Super Ironic, because I think the day that the process protest started the started happening. The restaurant and hair salons opened back up on Friday Moi. WHAT RELEASE RIGHT IN LA? Yes, how about the fact that the coronavirus just doesn't seem like it exists anymore? At least everybody seems happy to act like it doesn't. If the numbers are going to jump because everyone's fucking around each other. No, it won't I almost feel like. It's inevitable that there's going to be like. Oh, here's five hundred people that got the coronavirus from being at the protests in this city like that seems more likely than not hearing that, but at the same time we're not gonNA. Know because they stopped testing. They're like punishing us for protesting, so they're not testing right now. Isn't it this fucking curfew. Shit is crazy, too. I'm wondering if it's actually enforced in my area, we were GONNA go play. pokemon go the other night and I was thinking the Mike are. They GONNA enforce this at Burgh, it's well I mean in enforce in what way because a lot of even like McDonald's and ship boarded up drive throughs in their close to the gas station yesterday and the guy that was so pissed, so he's like they're making me close at five pm five PM. He was so mad. I was also driving Evan Turner with a girl on Monday and Holy Shit like Ventura is not like we drove on so much of it. There's no possible way that. Man sumptious. GOING DOWN I'm here. Every day. Get around here though it's like what like where the fuck is the protest near here anyway? But every store on Ventura boarded up black lives. Matter on the outside black owned Business Hispanic on business. Like everybody and I mean these are places that are not on the main drag that it's likely to get hit so. That was pretty wild. I was seeing the New York cops right now. No days off every every New York City cop is expected to work twelve hours a day seven seven days a week. That's scary to like these mother. fuckers are like actually sleeping and shit. You're going to get worse policing. You've ever gone before. Yes, that's the fucking job you signed up to do man. Yeah, that's true. I guess but. I don't know it just seems like that might be a recipe for worse shit, too, if you have. All the cops stressed out losing it, etc, who the fuck knows what's going to happen? And also things I'm not looking forward to a the election because. Well I guess I. Kind of I'm looking forward to. Continue to split everyone in this i. feel like Ho, if trump wins after this and the corona virus I don't know I just don't understand and all this fucking Jeffrey Epstein Shit an NBA tied to him fucking resurfacing. Yeah. Research into that. I think that was not a real anonymous account. That's way, too. At, but like I looked at twitter, and there was like a million people had just mentioned anonymous, and I was like totally anonymous, and then I realized like Oh. Actually this is already a thing that was like covered by buzzfeed like twenty seventeen. Loss didn't have twitter account. The real honest has been MIA for three years. So what are the video? The video was a real anonymous video. They can make that. Hard, you can get a V for vendetta mask and in. Fact, but I'm just saying though like. I mean if but whoever these anonymous. Wherever these anonymous people are. They still shut down the Minneapolis Police Department's website and I don't know, are they? The ones that that revealed information about trump. It wasn't. Written. There propelling that to more people than they. To them, you guys didn't see the Jeffrey Epstein thing on Netflix. God. Bless your. Same. I feel like it didn't really provide any information to someone like me. Guy As soon as soon as he died, I was like the first one like he didn't kill himself. I listened to this like the daily episode about it and I was like. Oh, he was like you know basically trick. Young girls into thinking that they could be models and he's taking advantage of. Only one small, but that's what I thought it was and then I was not prepared for the fact that it was like it seemingly like thousands of girls because it's like a whole spiderweb. Just fucking I've spent a bit of time in West, Palm beach the fact that he was living in Palm. Beach, which is like the super rich area, and then like having scouts that were going into the trailer parks, the hoods and shit, but like. House girl of young girls that he was already messing with a paid affiliate programs. Something somebody up and then Ponzi scheme. The dock was even more powerful because you get real life experiences are real-life first hand. experience from the the snow was. One of the girls who was like the recruit is like they tend to throw her because she was like a little older like maybe seventeen. She's recruiting girls from her school. That was like younger than her, and it's like Bro, chic are brainwashed by that nicotine. Greta, whatever the fuck is his girlfriend is. Just, I think she? She moved to some random. Ask because I see somebody post a picture of her in a diner couple of. Or something. They said that she was like In and out and like this is supposedly a secret message that she was reading a book. That, about like CIA or something. It was just like that that was her way of revealing Epstein was a fucking. Like CIA. That she just went in and out and just wait for somebody to take a picture with her I feel like that's what I was thinking to. Expect and she moved to Brazil or something like that though. And if she ever going to be charged charged. because. She was named as the co-conspirator a lot. See, but that's the whole thing about why a Lotta. People wanted him dead, because like he was tied to so many different people and. Yeah exactly, and it's just like it would be it. It'd be in the best interest of a lot of people. If he killed himself before all the Shit Dude Alan Dershowitz when they're accusing him in those girls just like I have never. Ran Even when I was underage I, never slept with the underage girl That's a weird moment was like this seems like additional information. You did not have to include that you didn't. Know you know what's crazy when they were interviewing the print, or whatever and he was like he was a, he was like Oh. Yeah I never been to Blah Blah Blah's loft upstairs and it's like. How would you know that the law was upstairs or whatever? The editing was wild, though how they went straight from Alan Dershowitz basically yelling about how he was, he was innocent. Right into the girls saying I dare say on camera. I did something. Right into her, saying she's seems pretty believable and you seem pretty angry. OP believable. They have like the thing with me. is just like Bro like? They had so many is like you could play their office like a business association only, but it was like they were. He was friendly with a lot of the people that he was working with would like which makes it. More like compelling that Nigga. You were involved in some way like Bill Clinton flying? They have all. Every person I took. That went on that fucking jet, but that doesn't mean that. Everybody on the jet was participating in that but. The fact that Bill Clinton. was on the going to the island twenty six times within like three years and I'm Joe Joe Rogan was saying like him in his. His best friend or whatever having flown together twenty six times right now. You're telling me that, so you're kicking it with Harvey Weinstein and. Bill Clinton and Youtube, or both fucking all these little girls, a ship of Bill Clinton as their. It's like the I meet any lease. No, the one worker one worker that like said that he saw the plane on island, said that he didn't see him doing anything appropriate, but he did see him on the island prints right. Now? He says he's well he's. He said that he saw Clinton. Nobody was able to actually say the Bill Clinton was guilty, but at the end of the day at the end of the day I. Don't think you're faulted by just knowing someone. Like especially if you didn't know and like you know like there was some with like. You know what to Africa knows like Chris Tucker Chris Tucker who I was thinking of too i. Believe Chris Tucker's all of a sudden in this book story on that plane. That's what I was thinking, too, but it's like. He's not racist. They've got a black front. Step in the right direction. What's he's crazy? No now good point, okay. But just I don't know that that was that was something I tried to watch to get my mind off of everything else. That was going on, and it was just like Nigga cut. Me To. How did that make sense in my head like this'll make me feel better. I didn't do it to necessarily full better. Just like this is something I was already kind of interested in one, too, but did like made me feel even like fucking house like God damn. You know what Bra, okay? This is completely unrelated to everything. You know what else I watch this weekend and I was like really put me in a bad mood after. Cut Gyms them. What is that about? What United States. Sandler and he's like A. He's basically a degenerate gambler in New York. City was crazy. It's like eight hours. It's very brief period of time in the movie, and it's so intensively one of the best movies I've ever made our movies. It's like the whole story is like a day or eight hours of. Netflix you just? It just came on Netflix. Also don't think I've ever been more in love with someone that I've never met never seen before until I watch uncut gems in Julia fought. Very few times in my life have I actually bothered to go Google Alvarez. Well I followed her instagram immediately after I was like this is the most. Gorgeous like. I'm just like so fascinated with her out of nowhere I. don't care about female celebrities and stuff whenever people are like okay. Well, I don't women. I have a girlfriend, but when whenever like you know somebody's? Who's your celebrity crush? I'm like what I never even thought about that before. Maybe like some girl s honor apnea one time.

Beefing with rapper from Memphis. They would really. Joke in the culture, aren't you? Know a nice especially time like this. This is not to be worried about. This is what I say about the situation at the end of the day. Shit wasn't a series. It was honestly funny. His dish funny I. Think Mine was better, but y'all can go Jeffrey fans, or would disagree and at the end of the day. This is not the time to be like focused on. That is so. It's a ceasefire for me. No no more attention would be what was given to what? What are your feelings? The most none of it because like it. Look Wolf got the fuck. Fuck, even I'm trying to figure out. Who did we all FUCK OUT OF ASOM? 'cause my girls with this. And I I don't know how to. Rap is a song and I know a little bit like. That's what. Your Song all facts.

Your your boss or whatever like who like sorry, but I don't really care what you think talking about. Him trying to use Ottomans like. He also said that I like. Hit me up and told me going. Did Not say that further I'm doing everything. I'm staying out of it. Obviously I can grow De. Austin the. tweeted the link. That's it. I didn't think about you. Because I was just I. Don't know. I. Made about you, honestly I listen to it so this morning. It was only three or four days. Listen to it and I mean the honest at this point. I'm just like I'm not surprised out at end today. And it was funny, so it's not even that big of a deal, but it was just like okay I'll put my now and like you like threw it in the replies, but it's like damn I couldn't even get a I can't even get individual tweet of of Masa. I feel like you. How you on twitter, and you just like Oh my God this this my co host is so fired. It's. Really funny to. Bar was funny. I wasn't trying to Mak- fucking a catchy. Like Song. I was just I was conscious of that. I didn't feel like I. You know I I didn't do anything about it on instagram. I didn't I didn't do the no number. We're going to do right now. Literally did that. He told Monte. He's doing this for publicity. He's good publicity for believe me you and atom like how is Adam. Adam doesn't really care that much. Followers I. Don't think this is necessarily going to really affect jumpers bottom line. No, but that's kind of the thing right is. That is looking at this like we could get some clout. Clough go back and forth, and you are sort of more like Nah fuck you. We beefed now right I mean not even really because at the end of the day. Like I said this Nigga First thing on his insecure. What is it? They tried to heart us not to bring it up by negative. It they brought it up. Taxes. On instagram both so corny. Obsessed with we're talking about. George Felit, I'm looking at the Chat Mad Elsner on like Oh God says so the Bet Mike. All talk much higher instagram is dedicated to us if anything like, thank you. I guess you're giving me followers. OPT for this podcast I'm not don't read this allow, but just you can go. No. Don't don't recently of it all out, but just go through. It was just like Nigga. You're sitting there trying to be cool with the whole time, so you got. You Got Hash. Rod Bryden with you. I I couldn't tell if astros like clown Jeffrey or if he was like just having fun with it, and then I started to get the idea like has his. House phone I. Mean They got? They got their own little to is just like it's so much weird shit! Go like in that round is just like bro Honestly like I. Keep saying this is some actual real shit going on our and we're all black man. Bro And I'm not about to sit here perpetuating some shit between us for literally no reason so I think could already guess them. Anyway ended today both Shit was funny I'm GonNa keep laughing about it and. I just remembered we'll. Wait. Wait wait wait wait wait. I'm GonNa just go all right so so who had a better dishonor to you? Have to listen to him back to back. I thought they were like. You're making me laugh so hard. When you started like coming with TJ style bars, the he fucking lot. I was dying, honestly a yours and his the camera one didn't really make me laugh that much it felt. Bitch Ninety Times. Asian. He called me old skinny. Sleeping on your ass was uncomfortable. That made me level the beginning dashes. Corny because it's like you're trying to like beef with a woman, I'm like your. I mean, but then again who you'd literally don't care. Kazman normally when you disagree earl, the most basic things say is like. Oh, you fuck this person this person this person was. None of that. City name for say nobody wanted to. He's even. Say. He's making it sound like I. Gave it a shot? No, we're. We're just friends. It's like the. Get around. That was the funny thing about my distance. He tried to diss me for like being home grows like having a homegirl or something I don't know. Some girl that I didn't fuck I'm. Okay, who said I was trying to what you can just have girls right? I mean it's twenty twenty. I think I. Think you just have a woman in your life that you're not trying to have sex with Wilfred zones are pretty funny now. I'm a rapper name. I'm not even going to hold you. When he dropped just because it was very unexpected, I mean it wasn't unexpected. It was unexpected that I was going to get a response from anybody. And then it was. It was unexpected that. He made a song to me because I had seen him for a couple of days before this shook your hand and Wbz Albro suddenly asked me for cigarettes. Rather be with him I. Get followers off. Or someone. Who actually has some relevant. That's what I was just funny that like you know. Your boy tried to like sin, his smaller Hinman. To too big to respond. Where's the Eddie Baker? Saw Man I would love to the squad house fund is. Like having what do you mean I? Don't know like if Xavier I'm trying to think who's other goons are like he could have sent after you. You think that that's the next round of attack or you think they're like. How's bonds like? This House WHO's GonNa? Tell the next. If you don't WanNa, do it I mean Shit I mean I saw Chris. Travis, my comments laughing. I know I was like. Wow, that doesn't feel like. There's that much unity over there anymore I. Don't i. don't know I. especially. waterbirds show in a long time. Chris said publicly like he doesn't fuck with you. said that long time ago, but I think they did like rollout. Really actually I don't know maybe I don't know to be honest. I could literally give a fuck about talking about this I'm going to be honest because. He's he's eating of Jeffrey inability. Exactly what he wants, he wants us to talk about and get because. When's the last time you talked about him on here? Exactly over never probably lingering clouds is I'm talking about famous rappers. There you go model. Largely Fame suffering I I I like it because I personally like. People dissing each other? Because I think it's good for the overall sport of hip hop like realistically, there's a lot of people who built careers off just like getting dissed or having this out about somebody. Everything isn't sport. This is true. That's part of the problem is a lot of times in hip out. The can easily go from a good time to really bad, really quick. A worst time right now. Executives don't give a fuck about that. Is like fuck it, you know. I will say that. fucking I was really trying not to even talk about this whole situation, but I will address this that I definitely reignited it by posting the video of. This girl! But defense I will say it was something that I was leaving the restaurant I said to the kid in passing my joke like I was walking by A. By your food. Would you take the house? Were you on. I wasn't on nothing. They was on getting food from a restaurant. But you know what you're doing. You know you're antagonizing the Celtics. I'm explaining to you. Park next to us, and I'm leaving restaurant and I just kind of said, sit in passing a about because they were in line still when I have my food and as A. By buyer food, will you take the house sticker of your car? And they immediately down like hell. Yeah, there's. Probably a long time, and we just ran over there and took it off. It wasn't that big of a deal. Bro We're having hall scored. Cars are six. There are on the backs of windows of cars in La Millions. There was a long time where that was definitely not millions. I'm trying to decide. For Shaw. Well, listen I the all jokes aside, or whatever like my Nigga we know. We know that at a point in time. They they not Jeffrey like they were very popular thing. They did a lot of shit for the underground. It's a lot of a lot of average. That wouldn't even be around if it wasn't for them. I'll go ahead and say that but. Some shit is a facade in these, aren't they think that they are and I'll leave it at that. But anyway next next topic. I just remembered when we were talking about that. That one of the craziest things that ever happened in the history of no jumper was when we were in back of the store on stream and a former, no jumper employees guy who was around has had a problem with them and has showed up with fifteen people really the back of the shop and they went around their. They went around the corner and they scrapped at a park a lot. Nobody filmed it talk. And then they came back and they were just cool after and it was like. That was one of the weirdest things ever. There was a moment it felt like the riots. Honestly wear like Hash like a couple of be shaking the gate, trying to get it back when the store trying to get to this person. And it was just like like what is happening. Is the world fucking taken over? Someone about to send them out there by himself? Is that what you did? Basically he did you stay there? I stayed there. WAS SOMEBODY I can't remember exactly who went with him, but it was the kind of thing where like some of the people that has was with people that weren't GonNa like if we're GONNA make sure it was a fair one, and there wasn't going to be jumping. Which is why that whole situation is stupid, because it's like so many mutual. People and so many intertwined shit is just like you know no one of the craziest time for me was we were just in the back working or whatever, and then someone just runs through, and then hops the fence because they're being chased by the cops or who was chasing, it was stated a hit and run right it was. Crazy. It was a do that. We knew Oh, no is Hughie. Bris don't say. They do anything met. He was just out on Fairfax and. He basically saw like three dudes. Mexican do FUCKING! They basically feigned on like Venezuela or something I remember. The guy was from like some other like South American country. From some days they wanted to smoke with Huey. Risks just for being a dude walking on the street and he ended up like. I, even got car I think. He ended up running from Fairfax to our shop runs through. The back. Sprint hops over the fence. We're like. We're like okay another day in on Melrose, so he ran into the front and then runs all the way through the back. I'm trying to remember missile. Was Chasing. Them ended up running through right, and then they couldn't catch him. And then we asked what what the fuck happened. Then he told us like. I mean I don't want to say now. You said the person's aim, but And let me just go ahead and put this out is that I don't know hugh risks to be negatives running from anything or anybody who might have had a machete or It must have must've something crazy 'cause. Slander Monday like He. At all. I'm just saying like brisk, not the negative as his running from something unless it was some really great. Might have been someone else, but yeah, it was crazy because it was just people running one fucking machete. Machete literally I think that might have been either way. Where in the back of the store and we just see someone like sprint through the store so fast more like. Oh, no, we're dead and then it's like they're just gotten the. Hurdle themselves over the fuck and fence was nothing never seen anything like it, and then I appreciate that the Mexican dude ran in and he couldn't get over the fence I. Hope I'm remembering this right also. There's like two years ago. I can't remember very very weird, so many scary we. Just so crazy that you close the store on melrose perfectly. Right before coronavirus and. Block. Thumb. Yeah I mean at first like when I burned to the ground I heard about that protest being a Pan Pacific Park which is like a few blocks from where I used to be and I'm like Oh God like imagine of Melrose gets fucked up, and then I realized I think Pan Pacific Parkas in fucking Santa Monica. We did a photo shoot Noah Cyrus in Lausanne there but. Shoot with. Hell Sketchy and Suave and me and Schwab New Swabi. No, that was Fairfax High. Pacific Park Zan Pacific. fire that, but it seemed like a long shot like Oh. Maybe motherfuckers ended up hitting melrose, and then it's like. Oh, no, every business that was like the businesses that we fucked. ETC Guy. Hit and it's just crazy thing because I mean realistically, we probably would have boarded. Somebody said. Does anybody remember the guy yelling at t grizzly in front of the store or Casper. WHO's that? So many weird. Yelling T grizzly, he was a white dude who had spooky casper tattooed on his face. Definitely why I guess I can't say allegedly on drugs from I educated perspective seemed like he was on drugs, and he's just like free salad in front of the cameras, like the most awkward moment ever, and then he just ends it with a end bomb and. is in the bag now he's way. Teague is right there, but segers Li like doesn't hear him. Slash is getting this evening in the fuck outta there. He doesn't want anything to do with it and I was I like. The pan over to these two factors. and to their credit. They didn't beat them up or anything. They just sort of like. It was so obvious that this guy was fucked in the head that these generally feel the need to like what possess definitely could have got his as what for that for sure. That was a weird moment. Don't read Italo. You asked me for the cigarette. I said, don't read aloud. Cigarette read it out. About, what are we talking about data? WEIRD CIGARETTE Cigarettes. fucked up to what the growth! Breath they burnt the fucking the police. Kiosk Grove as far. I've been a million times. I didn't know there's a police kiosks here. Is! A Little Mini House. Is that a train track? Next to like A. Pretzel and all that she thinks. From NORDSTROM'S Is Literally right there. For a few other stores to get and they hit. They hit up. Whoever got stolen apple products said because I saw people posting like. Please returned to the Grove Apple Store Yeah because it's all traced Dash Bananas. I want to see how many more people end up getting caught over the next couple of months like based on the phone footage and shit bro Bro. Trying to say that you know if you have any protests, put footage. Just, please fucking deleted and also if you're going to go out in protest to like, turn off your location and. Kim Not even turn off your location because they they could bounce the cell tower. To triangulate your fucking. Turn off your. Phone at home or fucking. You should airplanes airplane. Why you're protesting turned back on after they can still track your phone in there. But. Why didn't Meli think that? That's A. Good question. Video on him. Yes, me, too, and you know what I wonder about. Though like I I saw that they were raising triangularly all of our youtube together. They just suggest everything that we did they want us to. Use The word triangulate everything. No, that's what I was thinking of the now that they're charging the cop with second degree murder. It's like a second degree murder harder to hit the standard of because there's like a daily episode about why it's so hard to told cops accountable for what they do. What is the daily episode you've mentioned his? Daily podcast near-collapse does every day, but they didn't episode about why. The conviction rates for cops are so fucking low, and after listening to that I'm like Holy Fuck. This motherfucker might actually walk hopefully all the shit that's happened actually causes the fucking jury to convict him, or whatever, because if that happens in like, we have no hope of like some crazy shit. More crazy should not happen. It's really going to get bad as As if they actually let him off, and then also, I'm worried about if trump gets reelected, that's when the fucking riots they're going to be really nuts, and if trump doesn't get elected, who knows what all the fucking trump supporters are going to do? We're GONNA. Get this, but from them, or they're probably not going to stores, but they'll probably do a lot of other fucking weird shit. All these militias get activated and stuff. They don't fucking bring out the National Guard when white people are protesting with fucking firearms now yet the trump loses I think he might see a whole of she never seen before what I really don't understand is like the. The white gangs and like. Like. The! CLOSE DOOR! They're like throwing me off. A little bit closed off. Always there yelling fuck in a yelling like yelling. Normally they'd be able to with. The door should be closed as the fucking year. He just yell Jerry just. All Size Soon. My girlfriend doing this. Do the trick and she recorded. It needs to the protest. WanNa see my Tiktok. I don't even know what the fuck I was talking about. 'CAUSE fucking. Oh, I didn't understand I mean I guess. I can completely understand all the white gangs the fucking. Popping out in just protesting the protesters when I saw that like. Dude walking on the street in Philly with bats I'm like. Yeah We probably could have told you that. There was gonna be a reaction like this and it sucks that they can't control themselves that they have to be like fucking faggots Blah Blah Blah. It's like. Saying you fucking niggers. Okay well, I didn't hear. Probably hear some of that, too. Yeah, it's like way you know. It was beautiful, though this do again slept in Huntington Beach, so oh, he's on his bike. He's on his bike and like there's a group of black kids like like. fucking clown packed into the car and also on top of the car. It was crazy. They're all like on a fucking two thousand and four Honda. Shirt. He's wearing. Patagonia sure on his bike talk and like yell something like Fuck. You guys, fucking, niggers or something like that and maybe just. They, they didn't even know the car. Stop like four negus offer the car and Nigga was standing near like standup on his bike. Like Bro, you just yelled at obscenity at has group of black that you think you should have got off the bike and ready to fight because them nuggets came real fast starts smacking them up, and then he got off the bye. He liked tried to square, and then hit them one time boom. He folded like a wet Napkin. voted. On floor. You GotTa Love Like Twenty Second Clip where it tells the whole story. See some kids having fun here. Guy, say something really offensive to them. Guy Ends up in a coma on the ground. It's like how did you just tell the whole story in like fifteen seconds like this this unbelievable? He knocked off his out of his flip. Bro, no fancy editing, no nothing when I saw that it was a Huntington too I was like Oh my God. This girl with long blonde hair that just came in definitely areas go from looks like a negative, but. Pamela Anderson Huntington beach is one place where I. Definitely like seen people like rock and swastika tattooed for sure I was like Oh. Yeah, if it's going to go down anywhere in La, it's going to go down here. Man, they have literal like Orange County like white gangs gets a whole thing down there. Yes, right county sucks to be honest. You gotta stay away from their orange been arrested in fucked with so many times they're. Scares me. You wouldn't think though I I. If. You didn't know about it bad layer of. Whatever. Surface underbelly. A racial breakdown people that live there yeah. Yeah. We used to spend a lot of time Ed Observatory. While Oh yeah into Santa Ana protests as well. Been Burn the observatory down. That's nice. You like protesting at. Leave us that. Do anything over there. The ji-sung yet where it used to. I was actually wasn't yet. What do you think? What do you think a wide g political songs going to sound like every other why Jesus Hooked Police Eight? FUCK DONALD TRUMP DONALD. Trump. Okay, that's exactly what it was, but just like times to foot the police the police. The police. Guests Mike Well. There's already a fuck the police, but I I mean I've been I was. GonNa make. Songs could I mean it was the wrong with making the puck the police on dear. Dang my Nigga, but I feel like he can I. It's a wide you on what was really expecting. Shut. The different. Thing is I. Don't like when people who are like de-fund the police. It's like. You realize that like when you are like burning buildings down and you're creating chaos. It's clear that we really really need police. We need good cops and we need cops to be held to a high standard. That's what we should be emphasizing. We are not ready. No, but no. No country is ready, but nobody's going to get by with. No cops insane. Make zero percent of L. A. Budget to the police. I think it's they're saying there's so much four percent and like. If you compare that to healthcare like public education, it's like or even like the fucking homeless crisis here. La's brothers so many other factions. That can be supported. That should be supported. More than is dumping funding directly into the fucking the police here my thing is just like la crazy to see so many people like like the cops like don't post a photo of like a cop, being nasty or whatever it's like probably like we're gonNA. Need the cops to be nice to the people. Sooner or later, we have delayed. Hurry. Get to the point where this is not the stereotypes about cops. It's very well deserved right now, but it would be so amazing if we could get to the point and right this. The cops being held accountable in a way that we've never seen before. It's very positive. Change that we're already see. No, that's but dismantle entire system in my opinion. That happen. I. I think that the way that they're trained to like be all. That shit is crazy. Minority see that's, but that's not something that is trained that is that's something that has been build up in those individuals for a long time. Those are fears that they already faced and shit. Like these these are already scared of black man in a brown man, and already hold those fears in within themselves before they became police officers. That thing is, though these people that are like in these like white gangs, and there's pictures of them throwing up shitting. There's pictures of them you know supporting trump, and there's pictures of like you know them align themselves with fucking KKK Shit and dawn of Hitler's like. There's evidence of Shit light that you should not be allowed to be a police officer at the end of the day if you shown. Open racism groups. We need like inspectors like the same way that like okay. The UFC can't police itself the basketball these they can't believe this up. You can't trust the UFC to drug test all their fighters, because at the end of the day, the US's not sensitive is to want to run a super clean drug-free league there instead of put on good fights the cops. are in a position where I. Completely Agree I. Don't know the extent to which they already have. People that are like analyzing their behavior and stuff. There should be people assigned to policing the police departments who are looking at it and we shouldn't like. Find out that there's a bunch of cops that have the same white power tattoo. Just because people are able to put it together do photos said there should be like a regulatory body that goes in and inspects the police departments and tries to find corruption and tries to find bad actions. Did you hear about the thing fucking? Forget what city was. It might have been Louisville, where two cops killed a unarmed black man I believe, and then immediately it was announced that the body cameras weren't on. The mayor fired the police chief. He didn't fire those cops I. would assume they probably got fire, too, but he fired the police chief. As in like your department is so corrupt and so fucked up. This is not you can't kill somebody, and then just magically not have your fucking body camera working. That isn't fence that is viewed as so heinous that the police chief had nothing actually do this clearly had to go and I respect the fuck out of that, because that is the attitude that we need the cops to actually have towards each other. We need cops that actually like want to snitch on each other for. For their own actions, only once we get to that place. Is the country going to be able to eventually maybe like change and there's always going to be stuff. That happens with 'cause where they feel too threatened or what they do, the wrong thing that shoot some of they shouldn't have the show. It's always going to happen, but when we have incident after incident after incident of cops, doing shit and getting away with it, of course like people are going to be enraged about this. And you're. GonNa keep getting crazy reactions. At this point. That's was happening. Honestly Bro I think that a big changes coming feel AC- People are tired men and they're fucking taking it out on. Everyone even if it's not the right way or the best way. I feel like this. What actually bring some type of change if? The powers that be. Are actually listening I already see. Big like that thing. I just named off I would never say anything like that before all the other three cops that were with a Derek. They all are also being charged with. What can I say something like a series thing that's been? On my mind is like it might change the systems, and it might change how shit works in my hold more cops accountable, but you know what else is GonNa do at the same time is going to add AMMO. For the people who already don't like us, you look at us as as some type of way, and they're sitting there watching the news day to see him black and brown kids breaking into shit in stealing a bunch of Shit, and just like it's almost enforce seen the the racism that has already institutionalized. That's part of the problem is that the media would much rather show? You guys looting the building then peaceful protests, thousands of people gathering. In. A lot of that footage of the cops attacking the people doesn't make it onto the mainstream news. Shitty pretty fun most of that Shit Bike, some mostly shifted show mom from instagram or whatever she likes. She didn't see that on the news or whatever you know. She had no idea about none of that show. And, that's the thing. I mean if. You're like show your parents and your fucking older people in your family. Show them those videos coming across on twitter and instagram and show them that it's. It's wild. Because can I hit one for me like have you have you guys noticed losing followers like through this. I don't know. Nasty my followers would be on the same team, but apparently not because I definitely have had a bunch of days in the read lately do. I'm staying pretty stable, but if I am losing over this, I don't give them foster care. Get the fuck. You know what's crazy to like I saw like you know like. The hummy Lotus Post them shed, and there was all these fucking. It's like. As soon as you post something like this is very polarizing. Because the people that you walk like the people, you would expect mostly nothing but positive. Feedback and but then there's. Those like you wouldn't be saying fuck the cops if your house burned down or some stupid shit like that, and it's like that's just like a stupid argument back. To like, Hey, black people should not begin killed are. Like fuck you, we need the cops and like nobody's saying that you don't need cops. To Stop people of Color should not be dying for no reason by the hands of the police and nuts onto. Something annoying people, do you make somewhat nuanced point? And then they feel the need to respond with the most obvious point. adver may okay doing that to you the online. But. Tempers were high that moment, but it's like this. It's like if I were to say. That the new try to think that we all agree okay. Say Jay Jay Z. in the jail. Trying to thing that somebody says that tape sucks. Somebody's like Jay Z is one of the greatest rappers of all time, but it's like what to do with I was saying something specific and nuanced. You were GonNa hit me with something. That is obviously true blanket statement. Yes, of course you're going to need the cops or the Fire Department. If your house burns down, but I was making different point. I was saying the COPS shouldn't kill people, etc, like I don't know it's weird how people feel the need to come out with that fucking? COPS factors? But you'll called. Matter versus all lives matter thing. It's like okay. We're not saying all lives don't matter. We're saying black lives matter. It doesn't negate negate yes. That's that's that's like the most puzzling me just like. I don't know not everyone is intelligent DAB really blows my mind, though because it's like this just common sense, a lot of people here black lives matter. Take that as Or more lax on my life doesn't matter now. That makes you know everything is not about you and how you feel and I only God. This is hurting my feelings because you're not including me like why people just want to be so inclusive about everything like they wanna feel involved. That's kind of like why black lives matter is like a good slogan, because it's so eye-catching, but then it's also kind of a problematic if you take it literally than it could be. Taken literally because the people who take it as being taken then allows no matter you know. It's like it's sort of like asks for that response for sure, but it's kind of like forces people into that conversation to be honest. Which is probably got about? At the end of the day if that's how you if that's the first place that you go in your mind. And you follow me on social media or something, please follow me. Did you see the girl who was a saying like? Yeah, black lives matter, but so do animal lives. She went so viral from this take of her. Basically just saying like okay, it's probably matter, but you just ate. A Burger Does Joe? It's like no place it anytime. You're trying to make a point and you end up kind of like comparing by person's life or or anyone's like animal that. PROBABLY IS NOT A. Not a good argument. Maybe think twice about the. Sheesh. Yeah. Everybody in the in the CIA, no chicken, no peace was. Also Martin Luther King Junior which is weird user name on here. Really raises worship no chicken. From Martin Luther King. God I can't I need a time for God. I can't laugh shit like that, because I might get those academy, but now there's just so stupid. People forgot about her real quick. Forgot about forgot controversy. Weight and We'll be back for you. Got Her foot. Racism, scandal was really didn't hold. The can't but the fact that that was such a big thing. SORTA shows that like how much of this stuff was simmering conversation. That wasn't like the proper outlet for it, but then they see the George. Here we go, this is know. This is something we can all rinsed. The COP was charged with like seven other murders of like. A native people and Latino. Straight up ran up into his house. Right into the bathroom. Shoots him twice in the Gut. Way Why guy didn't have a gun out of her way. But either way Derek, Guy, that's why it's time to stop, and you believe. His wife less left him as beautiful. Asian. Miss, Minneapolis, or whatever I think they're just trying to push the in like. Yeah, we could laugh at him. Ha, ha, your wife, divorce you but. If you really look into it I mean she probably divorced him because it's not good for her safety right now to be standing behind him or next to him? The most ride or die bitch on earth to want to hold down that yeah and Aaron is his wife. Is that right at all she is. She is like the other. She's the. She is the most Rotterdam. Geoffrey Geoffrey FC. She didn't turn state. We don't even know where she's at. She's got a waffle house somewhere. She she was the one that was recruiting the bitches and doing stuff to them. Together, but they were saying that he he moved all his assets to her, and then they got divorced, so it's like none of his assets are going to be taken away in this process. This beanie is from emotional. Rick. This go follow promotional. Emotional dot me emotional Zan someone with the number of what do you mean? He's Oh six Gucci. He's actually running for president. Emotional Zan. For, president? He's like he's like twenty years away pissing. The campaign and his him in suits and shit like real estate crazier. Yeah, exactly it's tight and I set up like emotional Zan twenty twenty signs everywhere. People forgot about six nine real fast, too. I saw something that said his music video got removed up YouTube. Went right back up for paid that guy out the afrobeat producer. I was hoping that it will get taken up forever. That would've been fucking hilarious. Doing Jackson numbers by the way now the roddy rich. The box has been no. The box has been out for nine months. It's currently streaming like twice as much as Guba. That's a factoid that you dig volunteer. Apple Music I think I mean I. Don't have apple music so I couldn't check, but I I think they stop streams for everything and we're playing only like they're selected music and it was like. All black artists including I Dunno Kendrick Lamar. Who hasn't done anything yet? Which is kind of curious? Does he need to say something though I don't think he needs to. I'm a little surprised that he hasn't weighed in yet, but there was a lot of people saying that about J. Cole and then he shows up at the protest. It was a lot of people saying them Travis, Scott and then boom he's at. He put out a statement and stuff. What I really want to know is where conyers at. I really don't think the world needs whatever dumb ass shit. He's going to have to say about this, but. As, going to get everybody talking for day, his wife came out and said something. Kanye. Nothing to say he, loves our president eighty. Could find a way trump anymore through this. Is. Crazy like I really thought about that this morning. When I woke up, I was like I remember when everyone was so mad that he had the meeting with trump and shit like now understand why, because at first I was kind of like. Maybe Dick Thinking like Oh like. His whole point was that like that meeting was about them like being productive and see how they could come together and work together and all that Shit, and now a see why the whole of up, but however age was toward Kaya was because like my Nigga light. This is who you're standing behind. This is who you're. Going to bat for like this Nigga who was literally turning the troops to east, telling the troops fucking shoot nonviolent protesters for no reason and it's like. At some point bro like. Okay Zach Fox always bringing up some shit. He said, but another dramatic tweet reading both he's fucking. He's amazing. That's why. Like like he convey shit that like you think in your mind, but just like he dislike words it the perfect way he was saying that. Basically black people in America and the COP situation is like an abusive relationship where you like like you know a friend. Who is like an abusive relationship, and you just like my Nigga like you got to like. Like you like you? He was saying the police directly, but he was a US I. Don't think this is the best dramatic reading anyway. I'll send you the video. Don't really matter you. WanNa cut me off and you want. To talk, I, was trying to correct it as I was saying so I didn't say it wrong, but at the end of the day just go fucking video. How about that? He says some really good. Shit and Fuck you out. What you guys think about people using the Maga- hashtags to like flood their feeds with. With black lives. Matter. Issues. And News. We'll do. They're trying to say that this blackout Tuesday people were Hash. Tagging black black lives matter and that was flooding. The Black Lives Matter Hashtag with just black squares, instead of good information about protests or things that people need to know about black lives matter period and. They were saying like a counter way that we should do is is just start hash tagging the fuck out of fucking trump, twenty twenty and stuff like that and Maga. I'm trying to get super and so the Hashtag warfare personally, but yeah, that's nice. Was Nice. We'll anybody change their opinion based on like the Hashtag flooding I duNno, it's all funny. It's okay pop stuff. This is all stuff that the kids not with. No because at the end of the day after like they're like using certain Shit as tactics and I flight that was definitely one was not posted by anything for a day and let's fuck in be silent, and that wasn't the point because the. With. The. Blackout Tuesday was started by two black women in the music industry. What ended up turning into just everybody posting. Black Picture and and in a safe way for people feel like they were getting involved without actually doing shit, so that's what in turn it into I guess what I'm saying that I don't think anybody's clicking on the make. America Great Again Hashtag unless they've already pretty much made up their mind about how they feel about social issues, I, don't really think you're GonNa like converting anybody off of the House I think i. I think I thought I thought. Were you were trying to say? Was that like Maga-? People were using the black lives. Matter Hashtag on purpose with the black picture? Just so there's no black lives matter information that now as you were saying, you were saying something. Completely different people sincerely support black is matt or basically like now with the Black Square which was pissed off a lot of people because it made it. A. Which makes actually don't understand what the hell you because I thought you were saying something completely different. No some people were in my comment, saying what if we HASHTAG Maga- and trump to flood their pages on matter type content throws protest content. I'm saying that's not to do anything I don't think doesn't do. It seems like. At the time. Doing that it's almost impossible to even figure I saw white lives matter trending. Matters I clicked on it and I couldn't even find what I couldn't find anyone using it. Sincerely I could only find like K. pop people trolling using the Hashtag. Or something and I just gave up after. Then I see people asking the cake pop stands to like. Send them like K pop fan camps to like flood those kind of ages. Will Profit Kim where they just have their favorite k pop started singing dancing, and then they'll reply to that for like Oh my God I won't vote for trump, and then they'll respond with a fan camp. Fuck up their entire comments. Wisconsin. Sounds, fun. Well Internet warfare. That was good. We talked for two hours twenty minutes where one day behind our usual schedule. That's why I'm GONNA blame that on US having four hundred viewers than we've been doing most other weeks. Nothing matters. I mean we got a lot off our chest I'm Kinda glad that we stick to the main point. The whole time said it has bounced around talking about Bush's bit Safia. I'm glad that we had that. Debate in the DMZ instead of having in person. I feel like we would have ended up fighting. Back, and forth at each other, but was so last minute I wanted to have a pre podcast like meeting where I was like. Okay, let's all. Try take some deep breaths. Try to speak slow. You know like to. Have A PRE party. That was good I think we did. I think we did a good job of talking over each other or leading. Get out letting everyone. Get out points they were trying to make, and it's always important to remember. They are on the same team as people. Small disagreements. Never Act like that at all right team, but it's Okay I. Think I'm on the trump hop router for sure. No, no, no I'm not talking. I wasn't even talking about that. It's cold. It's called. Say Your race. I'm not saying I. Know what trump supporter I could expose. Not going to do it, but. Now like a current a supporter, but like I know somebody that I could tell the world that they voted for trump that the world would be pretty like what the pretty interested. Yes, you know. She should should be Biden's road at running you. Know Piss me off when I follow Julia. Fox is fucking. WCW. The first person came up into suggested with. Yes, Jews houses like why why why is she? With US DOT com. Algorithm knows. Major. That's probably like in your interest. Shut shut up to senator naked Josh Nation. What's that? He'd never seen that dude? That was like EXP-. Fed why curls my type. Let's never right KKK for okay. was that I tried to write K.. Correct first of all listen any grown man types KK to me like Nigga, grow the fuck up first of all three extra K by accident right today by accident. I was like wait. With a disclaimer immediately, you're so used to being in your dear Klu Klux Group Chat. That's if I was going to join the Klan. It'd be the Wu Tang clan brethren. Also I feel like you books. At any Hibachi the other day you saw just shown there. Go to the food truck also let's. Go to the food truck to Benny Hill, botch. Lord Also lucky said facts also lucky said of lucky, said uh, his helmet. He's waiting outside the truck. Outside the truck are week. Wait for a rapper, so he could snatch chain.

"Stood in on an hour. Long conversation between hosts Cameron as positive and some of the brightest luminaries in the l g b t q plus family query explores individual stories of identity personality and the shifting cultural matrix around gender, sexuality and civil rights. I will say that this is a shifting time. It almost takes podcast to keep you up to date on the landscape of, you know, just even just the terms and stuff like that on my raw. Now. That's that's that's a good endorsement for the show. I think so do you want to stay progressive? And all that there you go hog Yassin. Good way. Yeah. So b b woke don't be a joke be woke events a button for your will pass guests include Lena waif, Alexandra billings, congressman, Mark. Takarno the Ellwood creator Eileen Chacon president and CEO of glad Sarah Kate Ellis. Head of the WWE Vince McMahon. Oh, it's fine. I try to think of a luminary, and I think of McMahon its identity. It's community. It's query fine. Query every Monday on Stitcher apple podcasts Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts. Three. Time for episode four thirty five of who charted the show where comedians discussed the top five songs and movies of the week. It is the middle of April. I'm your h Michael Cray. And with me is well Howard Kremer with me is Brett starred Morris who I like to jellyfish and Matt Hugo Apodaca liked the beastie boys shirt shirts today. We are your who charted TV team. Welcome back to the show. I've got updates for you. Oh, yeah. Well, we gotta get right into the right into it. Yeah. This is a squat melt updates squad day. Okay. So last week was Sean distant right? Yes. And everybody he got everybody frost up about the idea that we're going to take squat melt up into barns Zoll park. Right. Seemed seemed like the great last hope it making save squat melt. Yeah. Okay. So then what happened was I guess this may have confused some of the charter at home all the sudden they start seeing tweets that squat melt is now going to be mobile now, we're going to be taking it as a comedy crawl. Basically. We're going to meet in front of Steve Allen theater. The group's going to gather with the comedians. I'm gonna walk a couple of blocks. And we stop for somebody to do a set right out there on the sidewalk, and that is what we proceeded to do. But I wanna fill people in on. How we got there? So what happened is Sean distance was on the show? He said go do it in barnesville park. So I went and I- scouted. It out a did some recon and I went up into that park. And every squad instinct that had started to just go off all kinds of squad squad since my squad sentences were tingling and not in a good way. It was bad. This place is a protected park. Now, we're on the full outskirts of it for the anniversary show out in the parking lot. And they came and kicked us out. It didn't seem make sense to me now to go deeper into the part that seemed like a bad idea. And so I went up in their first of all there's a Frank Lloyd Wright house being restored up there. That's something that has surveillance cameras on it is something that's protected. It's probably one of the main things they're protecting in there. But they also have an art museum. They also have a theater, so you know, what I mean, that's like a a rich person's yard. You're not just gonna waltz in their star barbecue could tell their entities. Texting this place. And so on top of that. There was a sign that said, no smoking two hundred and fifty dollar fine. So that gets rid of everybody who smokes, which was a lot of people in the squat Macron. And then and then also we can't bring beer in there. Right. And it's not like a it's not like Pan Pacific park where there's dirt patches and cans of beer laying around like, it's just very nice manicured patches of grass, you know, like the greens on the the masters. Congratulations. Bring it in to the world interest. Yeah. You don't feel like that like squat is worthy of such grounds. Excellent. Wait like, you think it's a little too. Well, that wasn't my angle. I wouldn't say we didn't deserve it. I just say we couldn't pull it off. You know what? I mean, the psych ocean's eleven th. Yeah, they're all that Mudi's in there. Can you get to it you to probably just 'cause it's like playing it? Class it up a little was there. Anyone I hire an Asian gymnasts? Thank you. Were there people barbecuing or anything there or was it just it's not that type of it's just it's as if you went to a museum that revived like the yard of the museum. Right. So that's why I want to say, Sean, it was a great idea. I guess it was a great you come in from the right place. But it'd be like telling me like go do it on the Kardashians lawn. They won't care like it was that type of vibe. Gotcha. So we moved it to the streets. And that was fantastic. That was some people said it was like a weird dream love. Basically we walked up for Mont we stopped in front of bars. We crashed a real comedy show tripling its audience. Wow. We had a lot of fun. We ran into a comedian from the comedy store who did a guest set right up there on the sidewalk. Wow. So this I thought it would be more vulnerable taking to the streets. But it's actually less vulnerable because you just look like a crowd of people. Yeah. And you're on the move anyway that we're on the move. Yeah. And then like I did a show Saturday night. Paul dike had a six city records great show, but it's by Dodger Stadium. So there's all these dodgers fans walk in the street. And not once was I like, oh is there anyone doing an illegal comedy show? They're like, it's very. Very okay to do it on the streets. Evidently, I like it. And there's a lot of room for just stuff to happen. Yeah. Like people watching shit. Yes. That's there was a guy stopped to heckle had no teeth. And then crashing a real show is a lot of fun to. All right. So everybody supports squat meld is now a comedy crawl for the second year. We're going to make it a comedy crawl. And the first year was great the second year. We're on the move. So come out to all the people that texted me or tweeden. It at me they're like, oh, I'm coming to LA in two weeks. I was coming for squat. Mill you could still come. We're going to be on the move. So I'm excited about that. Dart at Steve Allen theater. We start we met in front of their. Yeah. We walked a couple blocks. We did Tommy God loved it a set right in front of the Christian Science Monitor v. That was a woman was in her. You know, her shopping cart fort, and she started yelling. But it wasn't too loud. We didn't bother her that much. We got the hell out of there and kept it on the move. So come out again this week, thanks to all the squat stirs, and crawlers and comics who were a part of that. All right. Let's meet our guest. He's here. Pisa stand up and podcast hosts you can hear his show here. We are available wherever you get your podcasts. Welcome to the show. It's shame mouse. Thank you. Shane awhile. We'll get that. It is. I should have reminded yet had a time actually pronounced Ma. Like on a tree. I knew I the m USS I sometimes forget to remind. Okay. Well, I I I know it's I disrespected it felt weird coming out. I knew I should have said. All right. I get that every day in my life. What about dead moss? Do you get confused with dead dead loss? Yeah. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. I almost changed it to MOSS just to eliminate confusion. Make it easy. And I kind of got, you know, some TV things or whatever I was already Google searchable by the time. I got around to doing that. I'm too famous to change it now. I do the opposite. My name is actually pronounced Kramer. But I say Krimmer a lot just because there's an eighty in it. So sure. Yeah. I'll accept people that I shouldn't have to stop to figure out are crazy name now. But welcome to the show. Now, I've known you for a long time now, and I've known you to do your us a specialized show about psychedelics. Yeah. That's a show. I put together a few years ago, and that was a live show. Yeah. Yeah. I did like a hundred eleven city tour with it at Lozada purposeful number one eleven no it started out. It was going to be like first off when I first started trying to do the show. I just had all this psychedelic material that I could never do like a regular comedy club. And I I got a little indie venue tried it to like thirty people or whatever just to see if anyone liked it. And it was it was more successful. It turned out to be. I kept on booking. These shows turned out to be. More successful than I would have imagined. I didn't really realize that the time, right? That that many people were interested in psychedelics that I could go to like, my not North Dakota and the people would come out for show about psychedelics. And and so I. You find that those small places are places where people who wanna do a lot of psychedelics might move to or something. I think what it is is that. It's there are psychedelic advocates and users everywhere and in areas like that that are these ultra conservative areas, they are real isolated and closeted. And don't have any kind of. There's no like music that comes through their town that they relate to right there. There's nothing. And so when they come out because I I've also done the show in the bay area or whatever which is like where you would expect right? And does well there and everything. But when when you go to some like small conservative town, the psychedelic people that do. They and they go mushroom as they show up strong. What about do they show up and they're like Partridge family bosses and stuff? It's not as much of a cliche as you would expel everyone thought that I even thought that and you'll definitely get a couple of those tables of like, the real kind of burn out types. Right. But for the most part, you know, the psychedelic audiences is much more of a normal and kind of professional and bright group of people than even I would have it's like the crowd because the pot crowd is also pigeon dole does all just stone. But it's a lot of professionals and all their share. I would say it's even I would say it's a level up from the pot crowd. Okay. So it's probably smarter people in the psychedelics, probably, you know, supercharge their brains. Yeah. And I've been so part of it was I've been doing I have a science podcast. I've been trying to do these kind of steamed science shows for years. I did one on mating one on. The negativity live meetings on display. And then and then like it was, you know, a little hit or miss with traditional comedy clubs and psychedelics where this great way of talking about like perception and consciousness in a way that people would actually want to hear right people aren't necessarily always on board with hearing neuroscience chokes. Yes. And so you have to find little angles. Do you get a lot of neuroscientists in the crock because I did at my pockets. That's not a joke. Whenever I went on the road with who charted there would be neuroscientist. Really? Yeah. Is that true? Yes. Why do you think that is my theory was that I create new neural pathways? Sure. Music. Does that too? Yeah. Yeah. It might just be they were, you know, wanted to see the specimen in real life. That would say all these things. Sure. Sure. But but you find like like you speak to those people. But you're right. Like, you don't want to like sit around writing those type of jokes. They're kind of to specific right? Right. And so so now I have a show called standup science that's like half tedtalk half comedy show. So there's two scientists giving academic talks into comedians, a well doing sets, and then like a kind of a panel at the end, which is a little more like a live podcast kind of ibe at the end. So that's that is a way that I finally figured out how to like Marketa show like, hey, there's going to be science jokes right on finding an audience. That's that's interested in that. So it's been a lot of fun. Right. Sounds really cool. So yeah. And in this era of sort of niche comedy where people kind of go do out. Yeah. It's exciting. And that's a good crowd though. That's not like a politic. Weekly charged kind of thing really at all. It's more about exploration. I would think. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I keep politics out of every do like a lot of like behavioral economics stuff have listener biology and psychology narrow scientists. So it's yeah. I mean, it's a pretty tunes in movies. Maybe we should do a science chart. Submitters plenty of neuro scientists out there studying music, there's plenty of of music study within academia. Do do like what did he go to? He did he went to he got a degree in English. Oh, I thought he wrote a. Like the mathematics of like. Yeah. Those more interesting than all that his more. Like, I I have a weezer podcast series. Same as at fish one. Or you don't even do anything with weezer. No, we talked to see pretty seriously about it. What about this is the same as that you to one for you? No doesn't. Before you get to it. You can't do some music podcast for Utah. I love weezer so much my favorite band. But I think his his his thing right com. His thing right now is that he sort of is sort of like finding the math in musical. And he like he puts together songs with spreadsheets. So he's sort of like taking like for like, phrases and lyrics down at this point. It sounds like they're like a mad lips the way he plugged. Yeah. Yeah. It's like, he'll you know. So take ones renounced several right now is your they're not your favorite band anymore. Feel. Is it like a cliche to want them to like get back in the garage and make that? Oh, yeah. Leave they done it twice recently with to back toback releases. They sounded really good. And now, they're sort of doing this other thing again, I think he gets into a little moods. But we're not we're not doing my guess we're doing cowards. You're not doing that. I did you start that. I've been doing it for like a little over a month that meet post Africa polish covers. Why are you one might argue that the reaction to it one might argue that I don't know when I first started comedy. It was right after the boom. And there was a comedy manager at the club in Austin. And he goes, what do you want to be a comedian for and then I just went with it? Anyway. So in that sense more power to Matt and his crazily timed than we are. We are. All right. Well, we go. Speaking of music. We gotta start to chart my rap in this one live. We are thrown me a curve with the beat. Here's the music charts. Can't do that. Music. We used to play LP's eight tracks cassettes and CDs bowel we download and we stream if you're a chart test that me here you say. All right. There we go that was the history of music shape. Record those beautiful. Thank you. We don't want them to scream anymore to say music. I was trying to put in something different stamps. All right. What do we got this week? Matt today, we got YouTube top trending music videos in the US. Okay. So this is video music spotlight right here on who charted. That's right. It's coming in at number five. We have Billy island. We watching any of these or just listening just listening. Okay. So number five, we have Billy Bush with bad. It's it's Billy eyelash. I watched Coachella this week. I think it's Billy. I let. No, you're right bad. It's here this bad guy. That this sounds kind of like ASM are a little bit. It is very relaxing to hear. You know, it is like do you find a ask more relaxing because I would say the opposite. Oh, I find it to be. I don't have. I don't get those tingles that they talk about. But I feel like it's like fine. It's nice bothering me. Okay. Relaxes you though. Well, if somebody was whispering for a long time, I would guess I would get a little creeped out creeped out. What if if your girlfriend whispers to you you start getting creeped out for for how long she whispering? Because if it was like a long period of time, it was like just talk regular vol tomorrow, right rats outfit. It's not I don't like it brain guy. What's going on over here with this music relation with them between the love of weezer and then say like, then confusing others human signals. Like whispering as bad, but we good a few problems because some bad lions. No second week ended. I'm being diagnosed. That's because you revealed too much. You gotta play. Anyway, Billy is she's like seventeen shade. And she's taken over. She gets fifty million hits under videos. I I don't I don't care for like, the the sexy voice Salkin not into it. Oh, you are on match team over there. Yeah. Production is amazing on this album the music. Yeah. Sing. Okay. So last Billy, you say more instrumental. I thought Iraq did remind me of asset are like when they turn up that reverberate. And you're not sure if it's one voice or two. That's me. I am curious how she added heard any live performances over. I know how she does it because it is such a close. Miked quiet voice sound maybe she stays right on top of it. And whispers like the yin Yang twins. She wasn't Coachella this weekend. I I watched a lot of that. I'll I'll tell you more as the day goes on. But I missed her because I was out doing a gig. But somebody said she forgot all the words. Uh-huh. So she brought a little seventeen to the table. She didn't exactly have her shit together out there. She's senior homes blown up so fast. Maybe she's just she needs a little bit more time to learn the words, but when you and I did goo crews on. I'd screw up. The words. I didn't have that excuse now. You didn't okay? Let's see what's coming to number four. Number four. We have little Lucy Vert with sanguine paradise reach my goals. What does that word means sank sanguinis sang green does anybody know of him? It is optimistic or positive especially in an apparently bad or difficult situation. So he's upbeat. Keeps a positive as keeping it positive. Does anything you've learned from psychedelics about how they helped mood and depression and all that. Yeah. I mean Johns Hopkins does a lot of Silla Sivan for depression in particular, the multidisciplinary sociation of psychedelic. Studies is is probably going to be the first one to legalize the psychedelic for clinical use which will probably be MD AMA for the treatment of PTSD that should probably be coming in two to three years. I would think and what do you do to prove that you have PTSD main just did a diagnosis will that be the new my back hurts I need h I mean, I think I think most of us are going to dredge up some like childhood stories of trauma and and DMA trip. I mean, it meant for military PTSD or could it be they mostly they focus on the worst of the worst cases. So most of their clientele. Is veterans and sexual trauma type of people. So that's that's you know, that's how you get the stuff legitimized by like no one's going to argue that those people don't need help. True. What if you were to take like an RPG in the rump area with that be considered? Yeah. Twice the dose. All the. You're going to want some ketamine for that as well. Have you within your own personal experiments have found that their stuff like that helps you with mood? I think solicitation has been the single I'm I don't know. I I'm I'm really susceptible to depression, and suicidal ideology and say that Silla Sivan has been one of the most beneficial things in my life hover. If you watch my documentary, psychotics comics expiration of psychedelics, I did a bunch of psychedelics in a very short amount of time kind of showing the audience of my personal exploration and ended up losing my mind. So there some mental health issues as well. But wouldn't you were you even worried going into that like Dumont a whole variety and a quick mount might? Yeah, you're supposed to integrate and have time in between. And all that it was kind of like a low budget thing. Things. And so I was kind of overdoing more than what I normally would have. But I also had twenty years of nothing but positive experiences, and so I they always been good to me. And this. Does that from mushroom? Okay. Yeah. Yeah. And that's I just actually flew in from Jamaica last night where I was helping facilitate a legal Silla Sivan mushroom retreat. And there's a bunch of people down there like fifteen people with some pretty heavy problems doing Silla Sivan for the first time and most of them had like really life altering variances that much change their lives were they Jamaicans or they came from here. Now that come from here social science legal in Jamaica. Oh, I it's it's more of that. It's not regulated than it's like league. Th they they just they they've never had a reason to put the laws in the books because there's a stigma there and Jamaicans are like they don't do this and they're into like voodoo and stuff like that. And they're they're like scared of them. They have a big stigma. So there there was never any reason to put the laws on the books. So it's like a little bit of a loophole. And then you'd probably didn't need any. Security or anything because they'd be scared to come and mess with that. Yeah. Exactly spirits. Let me ask you this. Because I thought I was pretty wild for doing squat melt, which was a comedy show in a parking lot. Now is on the sidewalk. Jim brave, but you're going to Jamaica to take people with real problems and give them mushroom. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I'm not in charge of it. I was I was also doing I mean, I help people through the integration process and with with preparing them and sharing my own experiences. But I'm also like doing comedy shows and stuff like that for them as well. So I don't have as much of the say liability right as the actual retreat rock receive something on that. So you guide them through the trip. And then and he do a comedy show for them. Not when they're tripping off days, Chris surgery trips in a week, and and and a day off in between to integrate, and so they need something to do days off side do comedy on the days. Are they pretty groggy or can they process the joke? So they out of it or they're not out of it. There's no hangover with with Silla Sivan. Okay. Yeah. With molly. I remember. There was well, yeah. You wanna have five HT p which is available at any supplement Roku. I got. It's it it recharges your tone in levels for the average Brill not everybody. So you're supposed to take that after doing MD. Five ATP, where do you get any any supplement store, even even like GNC or something would haven't an it's called five HT pier? On five HD. Okay. Yeah. It's called five HDP. That's thing. You I'm gonna show. And and also you want to like make sure you're doing proper doses and spacing them out. And maybe not doing it. More than say five times in a year space space for sure. What about like like people bring weed and stuff to my shows to people slip you mushrooms and stuff at shows during my psychedelic tour that happened all of the time. Yeah. And usually I would just give it to like a bartender something like that. Because you didn't know what it was or something. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I took some some mushrooms are pretty reliable like, no one. You know, there's not I'm I'm much more nervous about things. I can empty main LSD, man. Man manmade. You don't know the chemists the chemical makeup. But, but yeah, I got I got I got down with with a little bit of stuff here and there, but I I didn't for the most part. I turned down most offers. Plus, it's like, you know, I mean, I really put myself out there quite a bit. So who knows if there happens to be an undercover something? Oh, that's right. It could be like Lenny, Bruce. Yeah. Send some undercover. So. Yes. So I try to plus. I mean, I I have it's it's not hard for me to find psychedelics for about. On a regular year. I'm using them like maybe ten times in a year. Anyway. So it's not I don't really there's no sure to truly addicts. No, no shortage. Yeah. All right. Well, I I love it because it's just a whole other subculture to hear about what their habits are really is different music and every everything else funny. If you didn't have a connection after all of this. Asking us after the show. I guess strange emails from people all all of the time people want to because there's all these retreats all over the world. People want me to like bring me to their retreats to like have me do AIBA gain or something I've been I've again as I've against the only psychedelic that can be lethal. It's one of the big ones, and I saw all all say this sound drain. Oh, I was thinking about doing. I it's like this African thing like ritualistic ceremony, and it's supposed to be real rough. You're supposed to like learn it's supposed to be like, a real father figure kind of trip like show, you everything that's wrong with you. And then at the end, do you like all these lessons from you? And it's that father to the man I teach what's wrong with. Yeah. It's not supposed to be that fun of an experience. I'd never done it before. But I asked this. The the organization is talking about maps multidisciplinary soci- psychedelic studies. They've founder Rick Dobelin, and I are friends, and I asked him one time is like Rick. I'm thinking about doing AIBA gain. But I've heard it can be like a twenty four hour or no I've heard it can be like twelve hour nightmare, and he goes, oh, no, no it can be much longer. So I have yet to try. I was actually delay that one on the documentary, but I lost my mind before I could get to the other ones that is going to try to save a little mind because yes, these movies and stuff. Sure don't want to twenty four hour birds in the bees talk. Take a swing at that. Damn what's coming up next. All right coming in at number three. We have an NBA young boy with free dog diner puts. Okay. So I saw some viral video today. It was NBA young boy running through a mall, and there was all these kids chasing them. Really? Yeah. He must be very popular right now. It was number three our chart. But yeah, it was like the Beatles or chase him through the mall. It was a flash mob or what? That's pretty nuts. I just feels old. I mean, why is it going to mall? Yes. Yeah. That's lives near that mall. Could be as local mall. He could be looking pretzels south. Well, so saw the food court feels at home. They're it's spiritual orange Julie Julie with help in a mob sales pick out some. Zales? But I'm not sure if he was at coach Coachella, I don't think he was he was at the mall. But it was exciting to see that the young people still get this excited about music. You can't get mobbed through Amazon. That's one thing. We're going to. There you go. You need a brick and mortar mall- malls will just be places. They'll be no stores left appeal. Just go there to get mobbed. I think the food court will always last always be a place for the food court. You think so I think so like people like go into one area to get several different kinds of food options. Well, the food truck scenes like really taken off that's true to Portland where I'm at right now. The other got him here to day. I went to a place yesterday. That was a it was like, a former food truck turned restaurants who would have Funke who would have thought. Put this stuff in a building. What a crazy idea. I thought it was only gonna taste good as mobile food, but well, it's like squat melt now, it's both. All right. Let's see what's coming up next. Great coming in at number two. It's BTS featuring hall Z with boy with love or and I watched this video this week BT. Isis South Korean there's about seven of them. Yes. I wondered why. Because like here we do five new kids on the block five of them. Backstreet boys. Five of them instinct than say five of them. They do seven over there. And then, but then black pink only four I saw their Coachella performance a lot of that. So they're they're ladies. I don't know. Maybe is the boy. You know, what I mean like they like to have a male baby over there. So they're creating more jobs for the male or I think there's a k pop group with like twelve members. Yeah, they've got some of them are big army big. I don't know much about BTS. But I might understanding is I think each of them have like a job in the group like those like a cage nearly like switch positions in the in the group. So like somebody will be like this idea for the music video the next time it'll be somebody else's turn to take over. I think I think that's what chance I'm the guy who dances on the left. Now, you'd be the guy like. Like that. There is sort of like a rotation involved. The job I made it sound like, you know, doing taxes or something a one. Guy cleans the boss. That would make sense that divisional labor. Do you find that this stuff the psychedelic stuff? Does it make you more creative doesn't make you more musical e f my favorite time to do mushroom trip? Is right after I have finished another show. Like, I I've recorded an album finished some tour or something like that feel so why there's less site, wait on you or something. No. It's like I have five different ideas of what my next show might. And I'm not sure what I'm going to dedicate the next like year or two of my life toward. That's usually when I get really depressed. It's like my my brain going like hold up before you like commit all this time. Let's make sure you're not going down the wrong path. Right. Okay. Mushrooms kind of shows me what feels like the clear way. I'm not. I'm not saying that it necessarily is. But it gives me a feeling like I'm competent in this new path for and so will you take the mushrooms and then wait for them? To kick in and then start to try to conceptualize where you're going like how does it take for? Yeah. I usually gobble a whole bunch by myself on. Schumer's term. I don't know the way of eating. What do you eat them with gobbles in an ideal ideal situation? I'd have them grown ground up and put capsules I don't have to tell them, and and they're much easier to measure that way as well. And yeah, I would eat them on on a nice day where there's some like nature around. And then also I can be inside if I'm going to want that as well have some animal planet on and I have a real cliche often Pink Floyd on Alabama. Depress you well, no Pink Floyd animals. I I love it. One you like dogs. Do they go? How does this go? Twenty minutes on you. Yeah. Dog about like lifetime mistreat, and like that it was just doing it goes for. Two. Our? I gotta get off your train it. Could it be pressing dogs is one of the most epic song jobs? Maybe. Something about disliking Pink Floyd renounced Pink Floyd. No bomb guy. I guarantee you're going to play a snippet of this. And it's going to be automatic down time. You you're not wrong. Thank you. And I really like, you know, I it suits mushrooms are well suited to like really deep. Heavy kind of like more existential. Okay. You might not play dealing NBA young boy, mold, right? Right. Right. That Pink Floyd pigs, although during during the mushroom retreat, this we this strange older guy that was there who is. I think mildly like autistic or something sounds like. I may be as well come somewhere on the spectrum. But he he told us afterwards. He was playing. I'm too sexy and phones that craziest song that's never going to let you down. It's gonna keep the name. Keep your pump t swift story. Here we go. Trip already. Yes, really how he was getting attacked rules. Everything about Pink Floyd Johnson is your of course, why did you? Really soon. We'll evening lists. Yeah. Very much. So I mean, I don't take psychedelics to have like a we fun party time. Okay. You're doing hard work. Yeah. It is animals is an intense album. You and I will say mushrooms, I I laugh most of the time. That's why mom great. Really great. That's why I wouldn't counteract it with that Floyd. Sexual kryptonite to I would not recommend any social activity. Yeah. -olutely? I I'll I'll I can think is just like it's just like this real any your face reminder that we are just primates. And I'm like, oh, this is so weird. Like this the sexist just the weirdest like corrosive behavior when your own mushrooms. Yes. And then I tried to eat nachos. One set it on. That's. Bizarre foods weird. The crayons. All right. We got to move on top of this chart. What's at number one coming in at number one number one little nausea x featuring Billy Ray Cyrus old town road. Forces make maneuver manure makes mushrooms radio, actually, Ty. And by the way, you don't have to grow mushrooms, manure species will will grow and all sorts of other substrates. What are you? What are you grew it in? Yeah. You can go girls really, well and mulch actually, the what if you had enough like city city governments are inadvertently spreading my Caelian all over like parks in prison. How are they doing because mushroom spores grow really, well and mulch, and and the city puts mulch all over the place, and there's already sports, and they're especially outside jail. Like people come into jails and may have mushroom spores on them on the way like just on their clothes and stuff that fall out. And so there's like mushrooms that grow around like person games and the other prisoners of favor. If you go in there with some scores. Yeah. It's not it wouldn't be my favorite trip that I, but I've heard of people taking LSD in prison and very. Than the Pink Floyd. They want jump out. I want to feel more. I'm in prison. I just want to feel every day. It'd be let me let me ask you this. What is it that makes mushrooms grow? Because not every piece of manure has those mushrooms in. Yeah. I I don't know enough about my college to answer that really. Yeah. No, not college. So just sometimes this troops will grow out of there. And sometimes they'll just won't depends on the species and depends on the time of year. The temperature of all all those sorts of things is there some type of huge mushroom in Oregon. That's the biggest creature alive. Yes. What is that? I don't know. Yeah. It's it's this. I've heard I've heard about it. I've heard the whole spiel about it. And I didn't retain any of it. But yes. Just the biggest organism in the world. Yeah. Well that north west regions like our the US's rainforests, and there's all sorts of it's like the mushroom capital of of the country. Well, there's like hundreds of different kinds and all that lots of mushrooms around that area. We have the worst rainforest. I got to say that because I watch. Yeah. Joan goals yesterday. The third episode of planet or what does it our planet? On net flicks. Oh, no. But those are my favorite kind of documentary was in the world me too. I love him best movies in the world. Maybe. Yeah. And yeah, they were saying that they were showing all the different rainforests number one is the Amazon and then like Africa and Thailand have some good ones. They mentioned ours at all. Yeah. I mean, it's just like kind of technically arraigned for us more. It doesn't have a lot of species of animals, right? But you wanna hear something this is music related and kind of psychology related I would often in my old place when I had people over I would have documentary like a planet earth or whatever playing on the TV in the background in then I would have a Pandora station playing and people would walk in. And they thought like the music was related to to the th in there. Like, what is what is this? I thought it was a movie. Yeah, they've got it was a movie. So I was like, oh, it's just Pandora and they're like put it. Match it. So well, and the interesting thing was was depending on the song that that would influence people's perception of how the animals were like they were in danger. We're having a great deal. Like if it was if it was like. Public enemy. Oh, jeez. I hope they're going to make it right? And then if it was like, Margarita Ville or something. Yeah. Yeah. Man, must be great to be a slot. Would like Margarita Ville anytime. You throw a party with drugs. You put on the TV with no sound with the music. Yeah. Everyone that shows up. We'll think that it's just a some kind of crease movie never which which is. I mean that that's really saying a lot about how useless the people making the soundtrack for those literally could've disliked anything because you're sound guy. Renounced sound? You mean, I should be the one scoring there you go. But I made it is kind of like even your your aforementioned Pink Floyd with dark side of the moon. And it's perfect bus. Yeah. Yeah. Classical music works. Well, yeah. So that's a good tie-in. We we'll stop there. We'll take a break, and we'll be right back with the movies chart. Have you heard about the loans from Joe bird?

I guess our planet with could be considered a movie, right? Or is it a documentary television show? I would say probably a docu series. Yeah. Okay. Well, that's my movie of the year. So far is a movie those birds the mating ritual. The birds that dive in the ocean and get the fish. That's so good. You let easy. We talk about on the here. We are podcast that sort of stuff they're interested in like why there's the it's called sexual die morphism more. There's the gender differences. It's all the advertising, right? Okay. Though. I know that much. Well, you got to climb on something else in order to reproduce. So they have to make you wanna climb on something. And so that's why like the guys with the birds. They got all the different colors and all like, they're putting on a show. Yeah. Yeah. You need to advertise. Your fitness you need to stick out a little bit. Yeah. Dudes are diamond dozen. So you say you got to do something to to really make yourself stand out. Right. And they're gonna see the same with humans like we listen to those rap songs and stuff like that. It's basically saying I got everything you want. Yeah. Call and mate with me. Yup. Climb on it climb all over. Yeah. Okay. Let's see what's on this week's movie charge. All right down down to to number five. Dumbo dumbo. Let me ask you this one. Do you know anything about like, for instance, elephants? We know have long memories, and all that kind of stuff how much of like elephants or any animal is you think created by them eating the mushrooms welfare is with humans. There's a the stoned ape theory that that isn't really that's not something that's popular within academia, but a fun theory nonetheless that that our primate ancestors would have been, you know. Popping various things in their mouth to try out different things. Why did you come across still aside and mushrooms, and it has this kind of? Introspective experienced attached to it. I think it's got right. And some people think that it that it drove people to try to articulate these experience, which yes over the evolution of language and fun theory. Why is it just theory? Why can't academia buy into that one? I don't know. Well, it's by. Yeah. It's pretty tough to prove is kind of called. I could just so story. I would say where there's not. They'll say like, oh when humans could cook. Then they could sit there and eat and then their brains got bigger. Yeah. Man. You've really done your research. I do watch documentary. I mean, that's that that is a little more going on there. Whereas like, there's archaeological evidence pets. At certain times, you can figure out certain time frames and then and then you can see that coordinated with this the expanding skull size, and then right, and they got more evidence. Yeah. I've been re-met the bi-cameral mind theory. Have you heard about that sort of ties in was like that humans even as recent as like ancient Egypt like a couple thousand years ago consciousness was basically hallucinating a voice talking to them. Let's like the right brain communicated with the left brain, they were separated more. And so they didn't experience like internal benja stuff. Literally thought they were hearing voices almost like, Hulu, Saination or or schizophrenia. There's actually some there's some merit to it. It's not like totally. There's no merit to that renounce. It. Hard to prove as anything, man. It's fascinating stuff though. Because different Trump. They do studies on like there's people with severe epilepsy where they have to sever that. Yeah. Stuff goes, it's crazy. What happens? It's crazy. You can show something to the right brain. Yeah. So the left brain did not see it and the person can't speak what they just saw. Yup. Then they'll ask them. Why why? I'll make up a whole new story for why they just did that right? Really crazy. Like, that's why when you if you ask like conjoined twins. They're always give you a different version than the other. Yeah. I think that's true up to prove. All right. What's next summit charts down to to number four number four pet cemetery? What about has has do you think mushrooms could reanimate in any way? Maybe there's a dead rain. And then they send the new charge through their. Well, I would be skeptical of narrow regeneration unlike unlike most cells in our body, usually when brain cells are gone, they're pretty much gone, but but definitely create new neural pathways. And that's what it's all about. It's not about brain cells. It's about connections. It's about the networks. More more than it's about the synapses. Couldn't definite. Absolutely. I think that it can it seems like it increases neuro flexibility. It definitely increases personality trait called openness, which is your willingness to experience new things and creativity. And that sort of thing, that's that's pretty well. Tested and an MRI brain of like someone on LSD compared to a regular brain. You can see the there's it's it's the insane. The number of. Connections and the LSD brain. Well, so let me ask you this. If if Matt and my both took LSD was is was he more likely to renounce weezer, see the ban in it or a mind more likely to see the good in it. Go of sorry about weezer. Oh boy. That is a stumper. Good question. I mean, I don't see LSD and weezer being super compatible. I I like weezer it just doesn't seem like great trip music. So I think it might ruin it for you. Yeah. What about well? I don't know. They I think they would give me a ashes of life. Just pulling my string walkaway. Look just like buddy, Holly. Do you dress up as buddy Holly on Halloween? Oh, I don't dress up like buddy Arnold Arnold from happy days. That'd be a very fun costume. Right. Well, I want to do these experiments one day maybe on the road with you in like mino-, Alaska. Who who who's got the most who wears like, the the big pocket of acid or the mushroom people? Like, where's where's the most? Definitely like Portland, Oregon as it Portland. Is that why you moved there moved there for a girl? But okay, but it didn't hurt. I mean, if she would have been in like totally to Ohio or something like that. I wouldn't have you moved to there. Right. Okay. So she. Count. Yeah. And yeah, that's that's that's a good psychedelic place. So is like Denver boulder. Colorado areas, real good, right? And yeah, there's there's some some. Okay. Pockets and other places and like around Minneapolis. I would say and Asheville, you know, the right places and with a little humidity to grow those shrooms. Yeah. Yeah. Definitely. Like the Kentucky areas. Good for growing them a while. Yeah. Bluegrass shrooms lead. See what's coming in at number three debuting at number three. Hell boy. This is on topic. Hell boy caught between the worlds of the supernatural in human battles in ancient sorceress, bent on revenge. What about do you touch on? What's the stuff? Everybody. Does. I awadh. I a- was the one that sent me over the edge. So that broke the camel's back. It was it was I did a too heavy of a dose. It was the single greatest experience. I've ever had in my entire life. But then also launched me into a manic state, and I didn't sleep for about three weeks. Boy started coming along with some psychosis and shit. Yeah. Couldn't three weeks be enough to take you down three weeks like how how long? I was sleeping like an hour or two night. Sleeping for a few days makes you you were a truck driver during this period. Is that right? Exactly were you. Did you do it in one of those temples with the like? Medicine woman. Okay. And it was it was like a traditional Peruvian ceremony sort of thing. Eh corrosive and where. Where did you do that? They. In colorado. Okay. Yeah. That's the you. Always you barf on I, Alaska. Right. Like, erin. I did they call it purging. They really fed. Yeah. Wayne's world hurl. Yeah. Yeah. I mean amongst amongst like the Iowa ska folks they like they like really look forward to that aspect began. Right. It really comes along. Here like purging the suffering of the human condition. All right to me. It's get a better appetizer. I'm not throwing trip. I don't know. It's like, yeah. You kind of it's kind of nice to pay the price a head of time rather than have a hangover in no sense. Like, you know, you're paying the piper before you get a absolutely all right. What's coming in at number two debuting at number two little. I gotta talk to you about this. Poster. Could you what are you pull this poster up on your computer? A woman is transformed into her younger self at a point in her life when the pressures of dolt had become too much to bear. So she snaps or whatever she comes kit. So do you have the poster up? Yes, I'll show. Okay. I've been looking at this poster for weeks. It doesn't look like anybody switched with anybody. Right. Like a kid could have that look. Yeah. A kid could have that look. And then the adult doesn't look like she didn't any switching look that much different in terms of age either. Yes. And they both look like they're dressed appropriate for today's adults and today's youth as I watched Coachella there was people look weirder than that. Kid right there. Yeah. Maybe an altar for the poster is that the the adult is dressed like a kid and the kid is dressed like an adult. Let's see it shouldn't be that. Confusing. So right. I guess I am because they're wearing the same outfit. I think is. The is the issue. Okay. But but they should. Yeah. They should have changed south fits. I mean, what a great premise. I can't wait to watch. It is sick. They're gonna get a lot out of that reverse. Big. Right. That's I think the point. You should renounce it about I'm not going to run out this movie. That's not for me to. It's. Many things going on. Well, yeah. Eighty two percent audience score people are liking it this big. Little hour and forty nine I'm in I go through mushroom trip, and then our and forty nine learn more than. As this ever happened. Where like what's the drug if you want to regress to when you're a kid to work out your old, childhood stuff? What would you take for that? I've heard of people doing stuff like that in Iowa ASCA. I've even heard of people pulling up some repressed self pretty much on any psychedelic, but even MD which I've never had any kind of experience like that on MD MD, Michael. Pretty Michael lovely. You could stay kind of present with that. And it's like, I'm not like, I think I'm in some other world. I mean, Sutton settings a big thing. So if you're just like going to music show or something like that you can stay present. If you want to sit in a therapist office and sit to a therapist might be a completely different experience. But do you have to tell your therapist when you do stuff like that? I mean, if if one were to go and do like, the the like official MD assisted psychotherapy. Okay. Sort of thing. There's a much different experience than your usual. MDM experience would the would the therapist be more inclined to give give you some sex? Yeah. I think you're going to watch that a little bit. I mean, there's no I mean, could you if I went into a therapist office? Yeah. And then took Molly. Yeah. Yeah. The only all right. I would have to be honest because they're asking me about my feelings. I'd be get. I'm getting very horny right now. To the point of like humping, this couch or hump in the floor of the I don't get that. I know most people do, but I don't get that horny. I'm eminem. I and I've I've taken because you wanting to do work on it. Probably. Well, I've done it tons of times like with my with my girlfriend, and we it was more like lovey dovey like bringing us closer to ruin man than like a wanting to bone sort of. But then at some point because it's like, eight hours or whatever, right. Yeah. I'm not sure I could finish on MD. Well, I think it'd be harder. I I mean, more difficult more difficult. Thank you. Let's see what would be the one to take for just per bony. Jesus brett. That I mean. Is definitely the one out of any thoughts. Talking. For him. But I'm telling you, Joel. Joel I got a whole different take on it. Yeah. I'm just curious. What your take it? If there's an alternative. Yeah. I don't I for me. We are all the psychedelics. And. Yeah. And the mating rituals don't go hand in hand with one another. But, but I I might be an outlier in that regard. I know plenty of people get down on I think because you have such an interest in it for other uses, and you take it you like, you know, what you could do with it most people who just use it as party sex drug. I'm trying to understand like explore the mind mourn kind of understand where various emotional states coming from. So it's it's a different experience, very different or watch the birds do it. Yeah. You lost the birds on our planet. That's really for you that could be a trigger to for them. Crow with a gene on it. There there is this this famous evolutionary biologists in well in in those terms anyway, a in Jamaica who is who is just chatting with and he studies lizards down there. And he he like he studies a lot of like lizard, mating. And he's been doing it for like forty years and now actor forty years he liked he sees like, a female lizard. And it'll be like, oh, that's a cute one. He's seen it through the eyes of the Liz. Yeah. We should have him on this. To think about how four years of that. With reprogram your sexuality. Does he think he like mates like a gets into like a push up position? Yeah. His do. Yeah, they go on top of like a hot rock. Favorite place, when you were down there in Jamaica with any fish, you saw that maybe you would say I would catch it. And you know, throw it back eventually, but. Not at all. Are you referencing an old joke mind by chance was your one? You had about a using a fish. Yeah. Yeah. Wow. This could be some kind of. Yeah. I was like rich. What's the joke? You get you having it's ruined. Now. Okay flows. The whole punch line. And I don't quite remember. How can I do how I would perform it. Yeah. Yeah. He goes tonight. Ever, you're fishing. And then you catch something you go. Hey. Yeah. What? I lost its to have to cry. Comics materials. Yeah. You throw it back. I didn't see any fish that weren't already caught and cooked. Okay. There you go. But you never know what happened to him before they cut, correct? So be careful out there with food. All right. What's coming in at number one K again at number one. She's Zam Shiels. I am. We all have a superhero inside us. It just takes a little bit of magic mushrooms to bring it out in Billy Batson case by shouting out one word. She's I am this street wise, fourteen year old foster kid to turn into the adult superhero. Hsieh's? I am how about. What drugs would give you, you know, besides cocaine or whatever this feeling of power, this feeling of inner command this feeling of overcoming. What could we use for that? Oh, I mean for sure let's see MD AMA with LSD you're going to feel like some telepathy some like kind of mind berating stuff going on. I haven't experience with this. Yeah. Took acid at a strip club in Austin, the yellow rose and sit at a strip club by trip much different. That's what I'm saying. Like for me. It would be like you get these drugs from the same kind of people that you would meet at a strip club or a bar. Like, it wasn't like a a quest. Yeah. All right. In fact, I think most of America grows up thinking of drugs as pure escapism. And not as like the Timothy Leary. I'm doing it. For the exact opposite reason. But anyway, I could I could hear every conversation in there. I can't hear I could tune in to whatever table I wanted and knew what was going on in my mind anyway. Well, also, a the right dose of LSD has they've actually given people. I exam charts on LSD and people have better visual acuity on on Cataldo of psychedelics. So you're increasing your vision here. Heightening, your empathy? So that's sort of telepathy issue field. It gets zone. We're like getting close to like a superpower sort of sort of definitely if you do like say D M T, which I have quite a bit. That's the active ingredient Iowa Osco, but you smoke it. And it's like intensified quite a bit that will make you feel as if you're going to, you know, like a different dimension and talking with different beings that percents. It's not for everybody. Yeah. Sure. If I saw like a dragon in a sort of talking to me, I I wouldn't really trust that information because well, yeah, you don't trust the information. Don't listen to the dragon who listen to the lion. I mean, I think yeah. I think you you just try to like watch and observe and take any of it too seriously. And okay, how says it more afterwards? That's the important. I think that would be my biggest trouble is not taking it all super seriously. Yeah. It's I mean, it's easy to get swept away. Sometimes. Yeah. The story earlier told as a kid about LSD is that you think you're gonna fly fly jump off stadium or something about the window. Yeah. That was kinda score with ours. Because it was always detective shows in the seventies with acid became like a story line. So then they would always be some kid took it and tried to fly. Yeah. That's always the scaremongering. Yeah. I mean that might be a little bit of culture perpetuating things and sometimes people take drugs and try to act out the way that they think they're supposed to behave on that. That's the thing. Yeah. And the I mean, it wouldn't surprise me. If if we've lost a few people along the way who have taken a psychedelic had some Perry. Deep issues already and then decided, yeah, that that was the done thing should bear it from the pink aforementioned Pink Floyd meal. So you know, that it was uplifting stuff. Well, there you go. I mean, look at that Zam hell boy lot of this. You could attribute to some type of drug Dumbo who who? Wrote that old Dumbo stuff. Well, Dumbo has that like drunken scene. Okay. Remember in the in the early cartoon where he's like a. Yeah. Like a pink elephant sort of situation. He's drinking or I it was very psychedelic. I don't know. I saw when I was like five, but I just remember there was this very trippy drug like seen within the original Dumbo, and you would have to think back in those days. Of course, they had drugs, and the type of people that would write a movie would probably use them. Yeah. So connect with that inner child there, you go letting the child out and letting them write a script for each like child labor. These have been some great interesting, topics. I think we made these movies more interesting this week by talking to you about this really covered the movies. This was not the strongest selection. This is not my week to go to the movie theater. But perhaps they'll pick it up next week as we. Get into the summer months. I think every single movie like actual Hollywood movies. Seems to scary on Scylla cyb intermingling. Yeah. I saw red dragon which was the sequel to you know, silence of the lambs. Right. I saw that on some serious weed and was not warned like what the movie was about and stuff. I just had to get to hell out of there. Outs. Much lobby grow for an hour. Okay. We'll be right back with the third chart picks. The hot picks. Big. Short is the hot picks that countdown about to start if you run, and let's see you. Picks. That's a good one. That was great. That was perfect moment to come in. Thank you. Yeah. I hit three on that. Because I saw what was happening. I felt proud of myself. What what was that theme used to be the TV chart of twenty fifteen? Oh, wow. TV twenty was a great year for TV tell you that breaking bad was still going. Things have fallen off. Now, I did not watch game of thrones any of the first seven seasons or anything that happened last night. I haven't seen the new one. But I like game of thrones. As you head over there. Dragon. Do my favorite show that I am watching is billions, and that's definitely not Delic wouldn't know. I wouldn't know I wouldn't peg you to watch a show in your whole life. And now it's like a house of cards for Wall Street, but just way better written and better acting. Good interesting. All right. No spacey. Yeah. Giovanni and take real step up. Jail. Yeah. Right. All right. Let's see your some hot picks. This is was course, Coachella weekend. I gotta say this got to be the weakest Coachella lying. Mike all time. I'm hearing that from my friends other circles everybody, and I watched one on Friday. I taped the hey gang for it. And I had fun with it. But then Saturday, I couldn't get into anything and Sunday. So they're streaming both weekends. I'm gonna try to make those up next week. But I was watching a lot of it this weekend, and I was balancing between the three stage. Yes, how many times did you hear the T mobile theme? I was I I mean, I was blown away by how boring it seems very boring this year. Yeah. I I'm always hesitant now to like launch into some scathing review of new music for fear of being called some just like right old dad while I mean. But I stand by it was very boring. Very boring. But I mean, look we like Billy eyelash at least, you know, pretty much to show us. She did she did it and MAC Demarco's pretty good. He did a childish Gambino was good. Okay. Get I try to watch some of that guava movie and that wasn't happening. Let's let's stop the music for our movie. It was not as weird move. But I used to had to do or let's see what's in the hot picks this week. Maybe we've picked some classics. Okay. Okay. So number five Howard's pick. It's back with saw lightning. Oh. And the data. Old back. Yeah. Beck's doing back when he asked him bring you down. Yeah. Beck's Bessul turn into his route. I like what he's doing here. And I can't really peg this exact sound tonight thing, I think that he's a master of mixing genres for sure. Really cool. I like that sort of spaghetti western harmonica. There you go down and coup sticks. What's that a popcorn? So there you go. That's song of the week is guys will have a tough time. God. Okay. Wow. This is not a competition, by the way. But that one's a lot of fun. And of course, when Beck does decide to put energy into his albums and not the downtrodden acoustic bring me downs. Usually succeed. We have like a real yin and Yang Scituate. I. I'm the darkness. Joe? What have you ever thought? If I listened to more upbeat music, maybe a half here. I. These substances. Yeah. Well, no, I I smoked pot. But then usually it's song said pick me back up after the putt. I mean, I sometimes do worry that I kind of indulge too much in my own darkness and Mike. Yeah. You know, us comedians are like very voyeuristic in that way like over sharing and all of that. And I wonder how much of my my neurosis is just brought on by that. I'm like thinking, it's making me in a more interesting person. Very true. Like like, for instance, if you picked being a cook, a chef you wouldn't think about this stuff, shop ingredients and people. I do. Should should've been a cook. Yeah. I think that's sometimes at the supermarket. I go what if I was just here to buy food and not like stare at everybody else, fruit, roll up jokes and rights supermarkets. Like, see I think it would like elites to probably a better mental state. Yeah. Yeah. Sure. 'til you kill an onstage with your rose and dental Joe. All right. Well, that was my pick. What's up neck number four? We have Shane's pick. Which is a Malibu Ken Tuesday. This is not a rock. I'll watch next thirteen cut a system in the kitchen. It's the closest me itself. Ditches in. Pitches in. I have a trip to this use. I you know, got an engine behind. This is about being like real messy. This is about being on the road going home and having an empty fridge and like all cash it scroll. And when you're not around and your, but your other plants are supposed to be alive are dying and style. That's what this whole songs about then. So when you come off the road to Portland new, this is your experience. Yeah. That is a good one. Brock. I know is on a lot of medical uh was on a lot of medications. I think as diagnosed with schizophrenia, he's got a lot going on. So he has a he has a song called shrunk about going to therapist's office. That is real incredible on the song after on that album impossible kid is called Kirby. Which is about the cat that the therapist recommended that he gets last eight. Yes, really? So isn't that a short cut through therapy, though, make get a cat? And then it's like there's a great line fifteen years of taken prescriptions now, shrink psych, I don't know maybe get a kitten. And he says it was worked right? It's probably a tribute to. Yeah. They go Ty, berries got his caddy. So he's tweet Nevada Martha Kelly every once you give a cat to a comedian. Becomes their muse their focus? Cats killing it on the internet. They're like the funniest thing. They just. They are funny and. There's a lot of them out there. They're all fighting for viral time. Yeah. They're always pulling out something new cats are cats are sort of on shrooms in their own life. Yeah. Catnip there's versus virus that gets into that eventually wants to get into cats, and how does that it infects a rat's brain and makes the makes the rat attracted to the cat. The the smell of cat urine kills out in the open where normally wouldn't and gets eaten by the cat and the cat gets this virus. And they think that maybe humans are getting this virus from the cat. And that's why there's cat ladies that just getting. Virus being controlled by the virus tactic. That ain't saying they think that perhaps there's there's STD's doing a similar thing that's making us more sexually promiscuous. I guarantee you I guarantee which is a way like the different version of the Walking Dead. Then is there anything to where yogurt has been found to get people to sex with? A a yoga. I still take full responsibility for it will be Scott. Got worse or something because probiotics or something. There was but in that job will episode. I watched this yesterday. There is a spore and a plant that makes any bug that smells it or whatever it makes that bug just wanna climb higher and higher. And then when it gets hired the plant injects it and eats it and fuses with it yet browse out of its head or whatever it's it's growing. It's just amazing. And then to hear this story the very next day that there's there really stuff that takes control of your mind. Yeah. In order to survive. Yeah. Yeah. There's lots of stuff like that. They they there's the book the botany of desire, which there's a there's a you like documentaries. I think Netflix has documentary or maybe docu series chase on Michael pollen's book the botany of desire in. It's it's the idea is are are we manipulating plants with our agriculture are or are. They actually manipulating us. Their genes are being spread in these really high numbers, right like which which was like arrow of causation and raise some interesting questions. I would love to find out all their full. They're making us destroy. On the trees. And I did Molly was asset was one or the other. But I was in central park and really thought about, you know, banging tree like it looked. Actual being and they got whatever that STD's. Kind of a high kind of fella and. Taste a little more of an appetite than some folks do. Steve on April hits. Don't you feel like that world is kind of telling you to procreate? Yes. Yeah. So I'm not alone in that day. But I mean, everything in the air like even with California. Now, the super bloom, I mean, it's like you said like every plant is wanting it. Yeah. And every I have to try to get the bees. And then, you know, funny. It all moves up the line because the bees are doing this in the squirrels doing this at all leads to us. I think trying to have sex with all of it. Yeah. Well, it's it's like, we're humans are the really about the only species that are like thinking about other. You know, true. But dull dolphins do as well. And that's like the two smartest species on the planet. Which makes me think like that's that could be maybe it's because it's like a really intelligent thing to like sale ends come down. They might be like, why aren't you guys having sex with all your animal, right? You're. We know we know dogs do it too. I mean dodge will just. Empathy might not be thinking about it. I think that's more of like a capitivity issue. That's more of like a prison situation or like on whatever's around, but you're saying dolphins actually sexualize humans and Steph and like turtles, okay, down with a turtle there. They are real sexual deviance like older the co Hearst's quite a bit. Sometimes sometimes let's get drunk rape. Females. Get drowned sometimes because too many guys try to die saw that with the turtles on this same documentary when a turtle would a turtle lady is ready. She swimming around and she's got like four guys chasing her. Yeah. And then when one guy climbs on it starts humping her, you gotta see this. The other turtles come and just start biting on his leg area. Just basically turnover rip them off there. So the guy's gotta like on for dear life. I never saw it so aggressive 'cause like fueled see animals, you know, fight for a mate like seals and stuff but not like during the specialized mention B's bees. It's like a thousand males to a female, and the and you got like, you you have a very limited shot at this. And the females going to take a few guys in there. But males males have their testicles explode. There are their genitals plug up the female. So that other guys can't get in their genitals fallout dies from it. But it gives us Berrima chance to it's all about getting. Yeah. You gotta you gotta spread those genes. So pollution is pretty much done with you after you've done that you can you can die without your genitals. Once you as long as you get your sperm in there's well, I mean, we get a chance every year, which is great. Every every April. All right. What's up next? Matt number three Brett's pig. Rarely okay. I got I've been wanting to bring this album for a while. But it's so extreme and crazy to present nineteen. It is okay. It's a Devin Townsend and path is the album and Shane I want you to listen in particular to this whole album all the way through if your guy. This isn't Downer like Pink Floyd, though is just kind of extreme good. Space the final frontier. Dude is genius. I've read for a little while now, and I've never seen him this vulnerable. Yeah. This is like what? Disney death metal. Yeah. He goes Dumbo deaf. Metal. This sounds like. Yeah. That's not a good trip at all. He's he's talented. He's like Frank of metal or something. He's an American. Canadian roca. Wow. Yeah. All of his all booms are like an achievement. Like, I don't know how he produces them how he possibly sings or plays them. They're a massive just massive like muse much better than the Celtic frost, plus muse. Oh there. Yeah. There you go have just Celtic for us. There you go. Celtic. I. I did more on that one. Well, we call the Celtics the Celtics. We should absolutely Boston. Boston, celtics. Congratulations. They won that playoff game. We covers almost no sports in the show. But it was did anyone watch. Tiger win the masters yesterday. I didn't watch it. I heard about it. It was exciting. I gotta admit. It was exciting stuff thought. The sun was had a little too much swagger. His little son was welcomed behind him. Like, he did something. His basket glory. Too much will Smith's on Coachella. Jay too much sway lowered on a tesla. And I was so weird. He made it boring somehow still make it kept lowering that tesla and raising it it was very weird in the whole set. He had auto tune on one hundred percent. The do we already talk about this? No, that's amazing. He brought that I kept saying that people. He's already considered completely not legit. Because his parents are superstars. Yes. So then that's when you say I'm not coming out with auto tune like I'm gonna prove everybody that I got something. Right. But he stills has the auto to his on one hundred percent of the time at a one hundred percent like saturation. Yeah. So even when he's doing audience work he's going, and it's just comes out like. I I have to see myself out at that point. I don't understand. I don't understand what people they should have ASO. Mar Kucha would just just going up there with the probably pre relaxing there two years on that little little box. That was like that. Have you seen that Matt? I have not. No, I haven't. I haven't done a deep dive on an mar it's a weird. Yeah. Hang on YouTube is all like very hot. It's like highway with fake ears. Like they have this box. Have you seen it chain? Don't have like a box with microphones in it like feed. Oh, yeah. Good record who charted on one of those. Let's do that with you charted as Samara for. Let's see what's coming to me. Let's see what's coming the the nightmare having like little creepy whispers. And then the worst is like eating sounds. I've always known. I've always either now noises there's something I just ripped the headphones off because it was getting me crazy horny. I saw we need like a like a dummy in the corner of the student. Give me an April dummy. He normally like this. Yeah. We got a live. I've been pretty horned up lately. The super bloom. Yeah. I mean, it's got I mean, you're susceptible to those like you're in tune with rooms and stuff like that player, and humans that springtime is when measly Brown spring has sprung. Yeah. But what we're just talking about Arnie? I got all those dragon boy suede songs about Horning s and stuff like that. But you're right. I usually don't discuss it. But it's just too much right now, which is the the ides of April, right? All right. What's coming in next? All right. It's my pick number two. And it's Charlie bliss with hard to believe. This is triggering me. Anyway. So. She sounds like diviners. Oh, yeah. A little bit. That's that's very sexual touch house. I'm gonna I'm gonna Google Charlie bliss, which my phone. I don't know. Is there something specific you'd like to Google just pick? I wanna see if she triggers me. Shame likes to taste mushrooms. And see what they do to them. I just like, hey, Google me. This pop chick. Let's see what happens. Yeah, I'm triggered. She looks. Like who does she look like? Shave a collar on. Yes, she looks. She's doing something raw she's doing something. She's doing something just sitting there though. She's doing something primal, she's doing CRO MAG bummed. Even I really like her music. I. You might have some kind of horny tinted glasses or so that you're viewing the world through you. You didn't hear that? And think like, oh, this might be like a a like a Howdy. I don't know she sounded like she was using baby. Boy, he'd be boys. That's I mean. Get it. That's a sexual thing for sure. That was a very cute song though. Hey, thanks. I don't mean that in the D most condescending way. No after you after you brought in the heaviest thing I've heard on the show. You ever in my life? Chris I don't know where my phone is. We'll find out later. I know I had it on my way in maybe that Hannah took it out there. Oh, which one? Yeah. There are two Hannah's. Well, you guys have all picked something good so far like it's been a click. Let's see what's coming in at number one. Number one, another pick from Howard. It's Merrin Morris with girl. Howard to this. We can't top the chart with Morris. She just started right? She says it's a headed. So this is zero country. This Rushie is very, but. Yeah. Like, she's got a new album. I do not like it as much as at first one. But this one feels a little like the first one. So I threw it on there. I like some country music. All right. She's good. I wouldn't say appeal to everybody here at the table. But it's remind it's bringing me back to that feeling of hero album, which is so good. Well, there you go shame. What should we look for? I know you're doing this show here in town this week. Yeah. I am a dynasty typewriter on Friday a bicycle day. April nineteenth the anniversary of the discovery of LSD or the or rather the first human LSD trip by Albert Hoffman. Why is it called bicycle dick because he took LSD not realizing like what it was going to do to him. And he had like four times what you should have. And I was like, oh, I guess I'm going home from the lab early today and took a bicycle ride home. And it was this very famous bicycle ride that he journal about and everything and and sell it was like the first LSD trip was this bicycle ride home from chemistry. Oh, and what year was that is either forty seven or forty three really know. And when did Einstein do his theory of relativity? Does early might've been earlier, but it's amazing. Just a world was ready for these leaps and bounds concurrently. Yeah. Well, the double helix was was conceptualized done LSD. Steve Steve Jobs was heavily influenced by LSD, right? Kama Sutra was probably thought up by some people who are on opium or something thinking of wacky ways like tetris to stick things together. Yeah. Relativity was nineteen o five to nineteen fifteen. So he had LSD beat by decades. Yeah. Took him ten years to think of that. Also, they can go on the road. If when you're on the road, they can see you your upcoming show called standup science, which which is this is just a psychedelic themed stand up science this Friday, but stand up science is to scientists to comedian. So it's half stand up comedy half like tedtalk kind of thing. And then at the end, there's all four of us in a second panel discussion based on what we've learned that's a Q and A W opened up to the audience. So it's a really unique show fund way to learn and laugh and have a stimulating conversation and do you ever book like a like Lisa lamp Anneli as one of the key? Like, you know, I mean like everyone's talking psychedelics and stuff, and then somebody comes out, and it's like, I try Puerto Rican guy over here. I try to get like a little not always.

An Honest Conversation About Race With Sergeant Chris Swanson - Just The Sip 06/03/20

"Welcome to just say either host Justin Sylvester today we have decided as a family here that we want to have a conversation about what's happening in the world, there are a lot of people who have asked me time and time again how they should feel in. What can they do to help? What's happening? And today I'm going to ask those people to come on this show and talk about that with us. They are friends of Mine Co workers of mine, but most importantly there are people who want to hear about change, and what my experience with. This is I just WanNa. Let you guys know I have Chris Watson. He is the sheriff from Flint Michigan who took about this year. Who marched protesters seeing in called him the symbol of healing. Healing you do not want to miss this conversation. You know you may hear things that you don't agree with, and we are okay with that. We know back I. Dare you to get to the end of it. I challenge you to listen to what these people have to say what I have to say. The questions that have arise, and it might be uncomfortable, but we believe here at e that it's one that we need to have. Please welcome Mike Earth Gas Sarah. She's a PA at e. she is a wide ally and training, and she just wants to know what she can do or this cause, and for this movement Sarah Walk into justice it. HOW WORRIED IT! I'm hanging in there. I think it's been a really rough time in here in L. A. Like. There's a lot of tensions I think. Everyone is really coming from a place of her trying to figure out how to heal, but I'm working there I, just like everybody else. Are You doing I'm good? How old are you? I'm twenty three and where you from I'm from new, Jersey actually I just moved out here in November for this job. Moved it. Over the terrible time to get to Los Angeles Yeah. My first year has been filled with Kobe and I guess you could say like protests and riots and stuff like that everything. Well. Obviously you know and you guys know out there, but I just want to remind you. Justice is open form where we can have a judgment, free conversation and you can express as. As much as little as you want, but I'm here to answer your questions and to have this dialogue because thirty three year old gay man I just WanNa let you know that you can ask me whatever you want, and I wanNA know a little bit about you because we're. We're going through the same things, but we're going through them with different emotions different experiences. You know and you are correct this year has. It cannot. It cannot stop literally and. I talked about this a lot with my white friends I'm like I will never have the experience of a person of color, but I will always try to empathize and stand with you and like here to support you and I think what's important in right now is having a lot of a lot of conversations within ourselves, and it's time for people who are white to educate ourselves not depend on people of color to do that, so one of the questions that I have is I'm always. I'm trying to be the best way ally that I. Can I am constantly on social media looking for different organizations to donate to looking? For. Always? China correct my family members or correct other people around him. That might be starting at in crack narrative. What do you think is the most important way to be a white ally? Like what are some things that are important to you? I think that's a great question I think having those uncomfortable conversations with family and friends and co-workers is one of the most important things because what happens is when you're asking uncomfortable questions or having uncomfortable conversations people. It starts the flame in their head. You know it starts them to start thinking and reflecting on. What can I do differently? What can I do to help this 'cause I think when you see these memes that say silence is dead in silence means complicity. It's because you have decided to stay silent because you don't want to have an uncomfortable conversation, or you want to go ahead and ignore that situation in. I think just starting. The conversation is important. A. Even if it means putting up a meam about registering to vote, you know something as simple, an American in non fight inducing like that can make a world of difference, because it's not saying what side you're on it, saying your vote can really change things especially. What's going on right now? Without saying what's going on right now? You know yeah. I was just GonNa. Say I think it's to me. I think it's sad that it takes something like this for people to like. Wake up and realize and not be silent and to be advocating about Ed? My question, another question I have for you is. How do you feel about virtual and online activism? Because today is blackout, Tuesday as we know, everyone is. A man and everyone is posing these black squares and. It's interesting because it's been said that it's not a black lives matter movement. It's actually that started kind of like within the white community, trying to talk about like the silence. That's been going on and I. Wonder I was wondering. What are your thoughts about this Is this something that you think that should be like done where it's like you should be posting blacks whereas talking more about, or is that not enough like? Should he be doing that and going further, or should you just be like focusing on donating and stuff like that or voting, or what is your? What are your thoughts on that first of all? Great Question. The first thing is when people see Black squares. It automatically makes them think. Why are people posting these black squares? So then people go and Google. What are the black squares about two, which then set on the trail of going down Google of figuring out what's going on in America? So I am cool with that? The, second thing that we have to remember is and I tell people all the time. You cannot be mad at people for sitting back on a computer screen and being. What I like to call virtual protesters, because covid nineteen is still going on. PNEUMATIC, if we want to talk about it or not. Yes, what I love everybody to get out there and be a part of the protests in shout in and voice their opinions I would, but I understand that people are going through Kim it right now in Bay may not feel comfortable. Social media is so powerful. We know how it can affect people. We know that Kylie Jenner made a billion dollars off a social media, so we shouldn't discourage people from posting something on blackout Tuesday. Now I think people got the wrong message by blackout Tuesday but I'm not mad about blackout. Tuesday was supposed to be you. Put a black square up and you let the black voices be heard and be seen and not supposed to use the HASHTAG black lives matter. Under the black, square, because the net defeats the purpose. However Rome was not built in a day, and we all did not get it right in a day. So whatever you did whatever you thought you were doing. The intention was there. Now when it comes to all lives, matter black lives matter. Let me first, start off by saying. This is a black issue right now, because yes, what happened with George Floyd? What happened with odd would happen with Trayvon more. What happened with Sandra Bland? What happened with all? These people is a black issue. But this is a issue about racism. And in my opinion, it might be us today, but tomorrow it's going to be the Latins. We remember what happened with the lat next community in at those borders stripped from their children. I seen firsthand with xenophobia. Let's side when this whole virus started happening. We need to fight this as a community as a country in weedy to unite, and this is a civil rights and humanity issue and I don't want people to feel like Alexa, black lives matter situation. I'm not black. No, because it could be units, it could be your kids. It could be their husbands or wives in the next generation. Is Image either? One hundred percent I completely agree in it. It's interesting that you mentioned that. Cause a lot of my friends in the LGBT LGBTQ, community plus have been saying like a lot of people have been had a lot of. Qualms and a lot of. Hurt feelings over the violence in the riots and they're saying well. You have to understand that that's stonewall like that's how we got our rights through these like violence in these riots. Like there's a lot of history behind it, so like before you're going to condemn something that came from like a peaceful protests like really understand the origins of it, so maybe the question when maybe you'd like to provide some background or like some clarification between the violence, and like the peaceful protests in like what that all kinds of means? On out. So look being in the protests myself. I was there on Sunday. We started out in beverly. Hills sorry this on. I was on the. Elliot. How Nice it it was beautiful beautiful. Started Beverly Hills at three thirty. The speakers were amazing. People were in formation. They were there they were sitting there. Listening and we started walking from Beverly Hills at around four o'clock in made it to the Grove. You. Top I started at twelve from Pan Pacific Park. By. So as Well, and then I went through Beverly Hills. And this crazy, you know it was in vain, so we walked and walked every walk in what was so surprising to me. And I'M GONNA. Call out the media even part of it. I'm going to call out the media at this point because the thing that struck me the most about the The peaceful protests in the march was that it will sixty percent non black. Yeah, it was crazy. It was crazy. It was sixty percent non bled. It was white people. It was Latin people. It was Asian people. People of all races of all ages of everything. And let me also point out that when I look back on the media coverage of it. All I saw was black looters. All I saw were African. American people you know looting and destroying public property, and I was so mad that they didn't have the audacity to show how beautiful and how diverse that hoping was. And being someone who was on the front line and saw exactly what happened I will tell you that the protesters were not the people looting. I can. Yes. When I was leaving when that first cop car, when aflame and then I, rubber bullets flew when left island right home. Because I don't I am not one to walk around with one eye. Okay I'm just letting you know now. I am saying this in the most honest way possible. We have up our country with putting out half truths because people are running around calling lueders protesters, and that is not what's happening. and. Yes, you're right. Stonewall was a five day five inch. We had sweat. We had to fight. We had to burn shit we had to let people know that we were here for our civil rights, and as a gay man and I'm going to say this as a gay man. Sometimes gay men forget. That we have to do that stonewall and that we had to do it when it was appropriate and wanted to marry, and we wanted to. You know have our husbands. Whatever little white picket fence, DOPP Dog Sherman. We offer got so you're not posting that blackbox. You're not saying it'd be an ally, remember. How it felt when you're straight counterparts, your straight coworkers were posting that rainbow flag in solidarity with you. You felt seen felt heard, and you felt like your cost was worth something to people and also remember before you WanNa mess up your instagram's and before you wanna I, don't WanNa. Fight with people on instagram imagine those people went through with their fraternity brothers, and with their cousins, and with their family members have to announce and the fin that even though I'm not gay I'm believe that gay people should have the same rights as us remember that remember that feeling. Because we forget about that and I saw people sitting down at at Rocco's. We saw the. Having rose a having. Are In watching. The rioters go by literally I was in shock I was y'all. Better put your goddamn crowns on and come and fight with these people because years ago when you're our fighting, we were there with you because we understood. Yeah and it was really I. Don't think that people understand how empowering Liz I felt like I was on I, was like had adrenaline for four or five hours. Because you see so many people who believe in you and like are willing to support you, and then you see cars coming up intersections, honking their horns, and like shouting signs like people don't understand the power behind that in how impactful that is new. It's crazy and look. I will say this in the nicest way possible. You. Know I live in beverly. Hills on the edge. Beverly Hills and West Hollywood and I live in California, but I grew up in south Louisiana. In. When people talk about micro racism. When people talk about micro aggression towards black people, it's not. The racism that the Jim Crow Racism and you think about segregated school buses in segregated lines for water fountains. Micro racism is saying things about people's hair are passing over people because they're black for jobs or not inviting a black colleague, because it's a white thing, are XYZ or making small comments about about this or that? I was reminded that I'm a black man in America one time I was driving my car, and I got pulled over on the side of the road, and it was right around the time that the whole trayvon Martin thing had happened. Intentions are high. And I pulled over. It was a normal stop. It was a dark street in this older white lady in her sixties pulled over as well. She pulled over imprinting. And the COP got out of his car, and he was pulling me over, and he said Ma'am. Why are you out of your car? And she said I'm an American I have the right to be here and I just WanNa. Make sure this young man is okay. And I was taken aback for a moment. I was a wow. This is really happening in twenty. Twenty eight seventeen. Wow this is how. And all of a sudden I had this sinking feeling of. Shame Ema and guilt. That I didn't feel that way for that many years. That I like myself. Ignore the problem that was happening around me, but also this. Of. Realization that other were running, be she? She crowds and I worked at this amazing network. bitchy syllabi. No yeah, no I completely understand that and by the way. ambigious, say this, because maybe you feel the same way, but I'm sure you feel the same way. Twenty three year old woman walking alone you know from bar are when you go into a room with a man you know by yourself. There might be a small feeling like I'm still a twenty three year old girl. Who I definitely felt that way. The protests I was on my way home, so we were breaking off around like from Beverly Hills grow. You're going home because I got text message. My boss that was like hey. I know you're there. Are you near Fairfax in third? Now's like no but I lived there. And for those that don't know Fairfax third where a lot of their cop cars that were the building blew up at Fairfax Yeah Walk Three blocks up. So that's I was with my friends at the moment because I didn't want to go alone. And so we're on our way back in all of a sudden, all these police are in lines, and we are literally like were avoiding them. We're trying to get. We're just trying to get home. We get to the street I. Swear Our House or apartment complex. Is like. Like within one hundred feet, and we say the cops like. Can we get home and they're like just push back. Push back and people are like we're just trying to get home and they were like you have to go around and we were like. Where am I going to go around? So we try the next street over another blockade cops we're like. How do we get through? You just want to get home. They're like. Go round number like where so we try going like on the next street down further coming around the backside, we get to another line of cops, and so just me and my four like white friends. We already have privilege of itself just being like white people and. Going up to these officers and I'm like I'm so frustrated. This point because I know it's getting to be almost passed curfew and I'm. because. It took an hour and a half to get back gawking Beverly Hills Fairfax So it's getting. It's getting close to curfew and I'm getting nervous and they were like like shoeing us back and I'm like I'm just trying to get home. How do I get home? I'm just trying to get home. And literally the AQAP assume disposition held the gun straight at me from like one hundred feet away, and just was silent like he was basically signaling. If you come any closer to me like. Like I'm going to shoot you with the rubber bullet and I was just like I have never felt so helpless and I just wanted to scream and cry, and I was like this is how people of Color feel as interaction with the police every at almost every time and I was I am so privileged to have grown up in a commute. I grew up in a dominantly white community. New Jersey where. I've never necessarily been really afraid of COPS I've been. They've made me nervous, but not like I'm going to die. If I come into contact with with one and to be just so blatantly, not heard and then go home and we had to sneak home like we snuck through alleyways behind the cops. To be there and we get inside and watching on the news and I'm seeing all these black looters and I was like they're just people like. Why are we showing? The leaders are still people out protesting there, so people who are trying to legitimately get home and they were cornering and boxing people in and arresting people unlike. Thirty minutes ago, that would have been me like I would have just been arrested for wedding like for being out past curfew for unlawful assembly, and I was just trying to get home, and those are some of the stories that aren't being told, and that's why it was breaking my heart when I was watching the news and I'm part of the media, too, so I feel you. I'm calling us out all the time. It is what it is, and you have to call it out and let me just say this. Because I. Think a lot of times. People don't understand this and I WANNA literally make this crystal clear. As women as gay men. As black people. We have all felt. Nervous afraid or uncomfortable whether we were walking home alone as women whether we were walking home alone as game it game in whether we were walking down the wrong street as black men. You have got to take that feeling where you even if you're white. If you grew up in a bubble and you've never felt like a man was going to take advantage of you or you felt like you were never nervous about anything that I'm sorry. This statement isn't for you, but you have got to take that energy of what you felt like, and you have got to immunize with people of color at this moment and if you can't. Can't find that strand if you just had a life. That was free of that stuff. Congratulations to you imagine you, but then you have got to a while I'm somebody who may be going through this I, know a coworker. I know a friend. I know a classmate, the woman who used to live two blocks down for me. She might be going through this right now. And how would this make me feel if I was going through this, and that's a great way of putting it I think like my one of my friends texted me the other night because I think that they were having a difficult conversation than they asked. How would you teach a person? Compassion and I really had to think about that and I was just thinking to myself. Now it's like. Like I think the way that you do. It is taking someone's reality and putting it in perspective of another person based on their own experiences, so like when it was coming to the all lives matter and the black lives matter, and it's like people focusing will allies Sanchez black lives and I was trying to explain to someone while my dad has multiple sclerosis. So that's like saying I. I WANNA. Find a cure for multiple sclerosis and then someone saying will what about cancer? It's like it's not that you're trying to take away from someone else's experience. You're just trying to promote the experience of people who have been silenced than you have been oppressed for so many years for sure and I feel like sometimes people use the reason why all lives matter is not being used properly. Properly right now is because people are using it in this negative way. Yeah, you know what I mean. I think that it's not all lies. Don't matter I. Think at this moment. This is a black issue, but if you can't connect to that black issue internally, just know that this is inequality thing. This is a human thing because we are all human, and what's happening right now is. A lot of people out there getting defensive. Yes, they're getting defensive because they feel uncomfortable. You know what I mean. We need to live in that. CONTR ability like that's what I was I was talking other. There is like. Everyone everyone's afraid of being wrong. Everyone has to be right and people are constantly just taking this random bits of information, believing them rather than trying to question them, and we all I think personally from the white perspective need to let go that idea being right because at the end of the day. That's not helping anyone, and that's not progressing forward I'm not learning anything from being right. I'm learning things from being wrong and then acting on them one hundred percent. So you! As an ally or somebody who wants to be a ally or somebody who is even non black. You may say the wrong things. As somebody who was black? Who knows my own community? We may say the wrong things at times during this whole thing i. think nothing that you say is wrong this point even if you don't agree. With? What's happening? It's fine to say I. don't agree with the looting I don't agree with people damaging property. Guess what Karen I. Don't agree with it either I. Don't like it either bitch. I WANNA go to starbucks and get a grind. Dubbed. Who Shot Nope? I don't care bitch. I don't want it to happen either what I don. What I, don't okay so if you're going to point out the negative. Point appetizer. Out a the looting, I can't stand for the looting, and I can't stand for the destruction of my community but I am happy to see people being heard okay. Yeah. Okay Yeah I O. These Keyboard Cairns and I'm sorry if you are a keyboard Karen I love that I love that term keyboard Karen Keyboard Karen's right now going off and this is what I'm going to tell Keyboard Cairns. I understand where you're coming from. You're uncomfortable and you like to point out the negative. That's what Keyboard Karen Do. And I am here for your comments I really am. But I'm also here for people. Correct in your ass, okay? So don't be mad if you comment on my photos and I have the nerve to either a comment back or led the onslaught. Begin because Ok to say you're not down with this. Because a lot of people, majority of people who are protesting are okay with. then. They're not I, remember. There are so many videos aren't being shown on the news of people who are protesting literally putting their bodies in front of storefronts in front of all these places, because they don't want to be associated with the looting. They don't want to be associated with hurting these businesses, so it's all there are so many narratives that aren't being shown because it's. It's so much easier to show an aerial chapman helicopter of hundred people running into a shoe store. And by the way if you look closely. There were. there. Wearing black. And by the way, but people aren't looting or What am I gonNA do some camping board okay. I'm not going to the out banker. Why are you like come on? Yeah, okay I'll give it up. I would literally admit this I will admit this. Black people definitely did that. Adidas store definitely. Club on unfair meds. We were definitely taken those tennis shoes. I am embarrassed about that and but I'm gonNA laugh about it. It's not funny. I'm going to make a joke about it because I need to talk about it and the only way to make people listen is to joke about it because it makes them feel less confrontational. Look closely at what the images are showing A. There was a video online that showed a non black person spray painting. Painting. A starbucks and black protesters were saying ma'am. Please don't do that. They're going to blame it on black people who I've seen videos of government officials dropping off bricks in the middle of town squares I have seen with my own eyes rocks being last on sunset. Boulevard for people to pick this up i. have this weird feeling God? I can't believe I'm going to get into the sci fi network with right now because a bitch loves a conspiracy. But we're doing all of this. They're leaving all these things down for us to act a fool, and it's easy. Fix Arrest of stuff, every men and we we, Gucci. We were we cheat I. Think if people came from like a place of love and compassion and wanting to understand, we wouldn't have as many of these problems, but especially with the I, didn't even feel threatened until police came like the like for the other protests like everything was fine, and then police came with all of these guns, and I got scared, and that's when people got angry. They're only acting in defense of themselves first of all. What you not due to a black burden is. Have you ever heard the Basang Duck, if you buck now? There's this term in the black community called naked in back in, and not can't means you kinda push on a black person, so we automatically feel like we have to push your back because we've literally had to fight our lives. You know what I mean. Yes, thank my first response as a black man to any. Sort of threat or or hey, coming at you is not to call for help or not to duck and cover back my purse responses. Hold your ground because you might have to in yourself at this moment. And arm peaceful. Ask from what I've seen. It doesn't get violent until people. Threat by standing there with guns and weapons when everyone else's unarmed. And I'm sorry I decided to say this. Sarah is why. I am. She is as probably as white as rose. McGowan. You're not look at his skin tone. Maybe at hair is drew barrymore back in the nineties is white. She looks like she. Her parents started Tiba Okay. American revolution. That's how far back my family guests thank you. Sarah has white. This is coming from a non black person and again I'm having this conversation because I feel like people are uncomfortable in scared to ask these questions. I Love You Justin I. Love You too, and you know what thank you so much for having this conversation. Before we get to the main attraction. I JUST WANNA. Say when I saw a video of this man on the Internet. It humbled me and it honestly gave me hope that change is coming in that these Ryan's. This looting and this pro testing is going to come to an end because I'm seeing a symbol of hope in this man he is the Flint Sheriff that took off his swat gear to stand to listen and to March with protesters. He has started a movement among law enforcement I am now seeing other police departments other national. Guard servicemen do the same thing because this man has become a symbol of healing this country, please. Please help me welcome the angel from Flint the man for Michigan. Chris Monson everybody first. Thanks for having me when I saw that video, it nearly brought me to tears. Seen you take your gear off and walk with protesters would made you do that. What was going through your mind at that moment I would say that the answer you're about there is probably what you don't expect, but today's Mike Twenty seven th year anniversary on the job I've had tremendous experience in a high crime area. I've got tons of training. But looking back at that video that you saw it was I love people. I have always loved people. I observed on the mission field across the country, and I saw the hearts I saw the pain I've been watching it all week. And when I saw the first fist bump in the crowd at a media Hog I said that said we can. We can listen to what they're saying, and so there was a love is at planned it I love to say it was all scripted, but really wasn't I just knew a helmet and batons. Those are barriers in order to have enough for that in the world today that if we. We put that aside, and we show on ability not as a sign of weakness, but as a sign of strength, and that's what happened. I saw the first brother combined I gave a big old hog, and I said Bro. That guy is not who we are. These cops love you. They will protect you. I love you and he's tell the people, and that's what started and the second question when I asked. What do we need to do now? Did you notice that the group that wasn't organized at their together? They almost answered a unison walk with. Because that's they wanted. They want somebody to listen to them. And that unity together that was beautiful, one hundred percent and look. Interesting that you bring up that you know, cops are our friends in that we can rely and trust in one another, but let me ask you this. You obviously saw the video of what happened to George Floyd as a cop as sheriff. What was going through your mind? What was your first instinct? Rage anger in eight minutes forty six seconds that COP destroyed years years of inroads, years of committee police relations just because of that in comedy times. We have to do this. How many times we have to go over! The cavalier attitude that he has standing in the back of his neck was somebody who's prone in handcuffs, yes. I mean. It's not even a justification. I don't even need anything more than eight minutes and forty six seconds to know that is all. That version is not us. That is a crime in progress and. The roles reverse. What if I guess obser-? Yeah and he's proud and handcuffed than somebody from the committees on his neck. Are you kidding me? It's Great I. You know for me when things happen like that. In Our community, we sit down and we talk about it, and we have to have these hard conversations, but on your end as fellow police officers. Did you guys sit and talk and say Oh, by the way this is what's going on right now we need to. We need to do something. I'M GONNA. Tell you right now. A culture starts on top and we have a culture in this office. Where we take care of people, we take care. People look like us. act like us. Are Worship. Blank us the culture of this office around here it starts from what message is the shirt out? And when you show love to people, police work is protected answer. Yes, there's a moment to protect and there's a moment answer calls. There's a moment, but the majority of our job is to take care of people to people to encourage people to support to love people in police work from me. Just tell you I'm in a high crime area and I've been you're. Right, so it's not that I don't have a tough side and a strong side, but my heart people has got me more than anything else. I don't need force I. Just need a heart for people, and that's the difference in law enforcement many times sees that ability as a weakness, and that's not as I said. It's a sign of strength I love that I. Love that you need with that kind of purpose, but it seems like that's not every shares department, every police department around the country. What can they do to make these things either not happen are let the community know that this is not okay well I believe in my heart that George Floyd changed American policing forever. there were. Points yes because there was. That happened before George Floyd. They were you'll that? Pete's and the question is. How many more times do we have to see this? How many more times do we have to go through this? Howdy more times in a huge tipping point and that's why to answer your question. If policing is done now the way it was the second before George Floyd was even contacted that least apartment. That's your sophist has missed it. You don't see that the race relations in policing and community relations in policing is the most vital thing you can do. Right now is a police officer. Then we teach anybody's answer night. One call you missed it, and that's why I say it is a change in our ad. And will we did in law enforcement is we lay down our sorts? Yes, he engaged in the community and we turned around. We Make Flint Michigan History, and there were people on the other side. A quantum atoms, Aachen's and Mr, Franklin from the protesters had ever. They had to be the same. They had to receive the message, but who had take the first step, the police, and so I can say it because I am one. Is Our burden to set the stage to lay down your source even with all chaos. This country is really in pain. It just came over a pandemic. We have scared people at home. We have cultures lifestyles. We have people that that are scared to express themselves. This is America. Semi expression your right to do these things and where it becomes, so I'm telling you I. Love covers all. It is a sign of strengthened my book. It has got me more than anything else, and that's what happened that day. It was glorious. Flint Michigan made history. Chris I'm telling you right now. You've got to run for governor among. You need to be in a higher office. Because you're right, it's a trickle down. Effect. Seed comes from the top. To start teaching these things. My question to you. Because look, you guys didn't know out there. I'm a black man and you know there are times where I still feel afraid. What should you tell people who are still afraid to drive at night to walk in neighborhoods that they would not normally be seeing in? And what should people do right now? When it comes to this okay answer, two questions number one, please. Police officers in America do not give up on your communities. If you've tried ten thousand times to talk to your community to engage. Try One more time. Don't give. Even with all the things I don't care how many times you've been treated horrible. We have to take the first step number two. Listen and support your PUIG's. I'm seeing the acronym. Overall cops are bad. That is not true. There are eight hundred thousand police officers in the country. Hundreds of thousands, work and right now white, black, straight, gay, Male, female, young old veterans, rookies listen. This is a noble field. People will give their lives to answer Niveau one call, so please can't give up under community. The communicate give up under police, and when it comes to people who operate in fear that breaks my heart I would even I don't even know because of to what it would be like. Drive down the road, and just by driving I have this undertone of fear because of what color I am the only thing I can relate to that is other times. It caused me. Fear or pain or stress. I know what those things are. When there is a dispute in my family or when somebody attacks me, I'm justly or someone, says something horrific because I'm still human I have. It when someone attacks I if that's the smallest way back, understand that someone driving if that's how you all the time driving, are you kidding? We're better than that. This country is a great country and people need late. August swords and stop dividing sides. And stop making reasons out of nothing. Don't may wrongs right in just listen to people? This country in this world is starving for a voice of calm, a voice of reason in piece of voice of de Escalation prisoner even Harry. Yeah we'll have live twenty six years. Your wife must be like Chris. When you get home are going to get some good right now because you are shaping the world in your life is not throwing it on you every night or the next year, we. Compensation Hey. It's not I'm sending it to listen. They haven't seen my wife in the last four days about thirty five minutes so okay. I lock can go down and thirty five minutes, and she better be ready, okay? Number. Chris I came to Flint, Michigan a few years ago when the water crisis hit, and I was given out water to people and listening to the stories, and it was unbelievable and amazing experience for me where you guys right at right now with the water prices, but I'm GonNa time lived at first hand. In January, two, thousand sixteen, we took this office a flatbed tow truck with cases of water to pass. Saginaw knocked down the first door and said Ma'am. You're water spokesperson. Here's a case water and that had a cascade effect that we're still paying the price today. What happened in the water? Crisis is the committee. My parents live in flint. Community lost faith in government. Who was there for the people dropped the ball and poison, human beings, little kids, and it wasn't so we saw the lead. Levels exceed levels of of normal that we realized there's a problem and I'm GonNa, tell you. We've come a long way. And we've done a lot of good, and there's a whole change of leadership both in the city government and the state government. We're in the best position now to continue to do this, but I'm gonNA. Tell you something it's never going to end because we already have little ones that are growing that have been infected that are going to be struggling, and so we've created a culture that we now to take care of them, so we've changed landlines. We have new filters like in this jail right here. You know we're able to put in cascade filters when we test our waters for leaded copper all the time with work with the health department. You know you have to be proactive and that kind of thing, so we're getting better, but like all these years later, my parents still drink bottled water. Yeah, you have to do it. This is what I hate about things that happened like this. Because we move away from what's really going on in the communities. We're still dealing with Cova. You guys are still dealing with the water crisis, and I hate that we get away from the messages and we we only focus on the looting, and what the bad things people are doing, and we're not focusing on what people are doing in the community. That's could what I'm GONNA. Tell you those things happy addressed, but don't lose hope. When people lose hope, that's the most dangerous situation to him. I I don't have time to go into the coronavirus, but I'm going to tell you that this jail that we're in. We're the fourth highest county in the state of Michigan for cases. Of Death, in fifth highest and the cases overall and Ivan. An inmate population that has zero cases because we take care of people I have an inmate population that has served at inmate population family. That's taking care of we educate our inmates I'm into Sherry. Come here, Bro! Since March seventeenth because the pandemic we've served a million pounds of food to the community because their food sources were shutdown. Come on. A great place to hang. I wouldn't live in. It was nice. Little bubbles in our city has be so I got one thing. You know what you might be right because right now. That's is not looking like the Taj Mahal right now, but I will say when I came to flint, there was a sense of community in a sense of pride in what people were doing so the yeah, say what you want. You know hang trying to go to Michigan, but ideally flint was I had some pride in flint I felt good because I went. I went through. I went through Katrina. I saw what a state does around people who are in need and it was a reminder of that moment of the good. That came out of Katrina so. What prompts to you and what you're doing in the message that you're spreading because we're seeing it in des. Moines receiving cuffs in DC take taken knee receiving. This is like fire, the the warm, and the goodness of evil in the you show. Those people are spreading, and we are so proud and we're so happy to have you here at. My next guest on this podcast is actually the friend who was the person who kinda inspired this whole thing. He was one of the first people to reach out to me to know what he could do. How I was feeling and I'm happy to welcome my friend. He is the owner of all inclusive nightclub in orange. County so he has been on the front lines for equality for a very long time. He is Australian, so he doesn't know the history that we have with racism in America, and I'm happy to have him here to answer some of these questions. Please welcome Lou Niro I. This is normally when the studio audience collapsed, but because Kovic. No studio audience will be out on. Orders will be out of an audience. It's so crazy I'm wondering from a gay man's point of view, and also from someone who is not from America, what does this look like for you? What is this elway will? It feels like it is a really clear reminded that I have absolutely zero knowledge in regards to a black culture in the United States. It's not part of the learning of in White People's culture clearly right, so we are confronted with. Right now faces right now you are on the front lines for some of the marches and the movements in the gay community both in New York in in La. Do you see the resemblance kind of what's going on? We'll oppression is oppression. I feel. Oppression which is slightly different, because I be oppression of black people such so ingrained in some many centuries. Gays have been you know we can kind of blend in we can. We've been able to blending. We can hide we can have. We have a lover on the side, or you know what I mean it in regards to centuries right, so we were still able to live freely. Yes, we're go down the street and known enough on Guy Right. But as black person, how do you escape? It's in your Melanin your skin, so you can't escape it. You remember uranium ever even thought about it like that like I. Never ever took the time to think about like as a gay man. You can escape it because I get so mad when I don't see game in really stand behind this 'cause a post about this 'cause are come out. Just say one thing. We'll still just say you're good. Looking. Want Gay man. You can still blend into the crowd. We'll be able to strike people in live. You can still have a taste of that. But as a blind person, you're black, sea Kat Kat. Camouflages. On so there, one hundred percent of the time is nothing you can do about it and you I mean obviously you. You weren't here when Selma was happening in Martin. Luther King Did, you ever think in your years of living in America you would see experience or be a part of something this crazy. No will I didn't think I'd be part of a pandemic ego, so is lots of lots of thirsts. He at like I've had Mike First. EARTHQUAKE MY I. I would actually was threatening in jail for a few days in New York fourteen years ago. So I have I've had a lot of I in my lot in the United States. but this is probably been the most racial and culturally significant moment on been confronted with even in Australian term, so yes, do you feel like there are questions that you have for? For people like me that go on answer or uncomfortable conversations that you wish that you could have with people will like I called you two days ago because it out of my own ignorant, one hundred to make sure that you're a kite rod, because Zach. No, it's there's a lot of pressure year in front of a camera. Whatever any have a very big social. Network so I just wanted to check in with you, but I wanted to. Have you feel When people ask how you doing like is that for me? I thought do I. DO I call us at patronizing like? How do you feel when people ask? How are you feeling? You know what that's actually a really good question because I know. A lot of people have lashed out at people for Non Black People for asking that question and to be honest I am exhausted. And I am over answering that question, but I understand that whereas where it's coming from is a place of love and a place, a concern and Y- Yes so for me I almost acquainted to the week of my father. After two days of that question, it comes back again. You just like I'm just so tired of saying how I feel and comforting people because people want to be comforted, but I also understand that my friends just honestly WanNa. Make sure I'm. In for me. And for a lot of people I think it starts to uncomfortable conversation. It gets that fire started like hey I'm good or you posting. Do you feel like you're doing enough? That's where I start to change the conversation. I use it as a moment to bring to light that. Yes, I am feeling are certain type away, but you should also feel uncomfortable than you live in this America, and you live in this society, and you are not doing what you can do. To make it better. So I turned in. We're good and you know I. Don't WanNa. Feel like the angry black man because I feel like the the furthest from that, but I think sometimes people forget because I am on TV because I. Do run end the social circles with a fluent white people that I don't feel this in. It's not my struggle, but it has been my struggle since nineteen eighty six. Will you made it very clear? when you told me that there's a reason why you drive a watch cop. And I think everybody should know that. you chose to drive a white cop because that means, you are less likely to be pulled in a luxury car so. Because it's like you eat doesn't your camera? You have your hard earned money in you go to buy. kaban still can't by the county you want out of feed. You will be pulled of because it will draw attention to you driving that car a net news really. So bad, but it's so simple, though so I feel like it's. It's clean. Cut Messages like that people. Need to now we're not. We don't know those things. So Sicily the little things that are really big reminders of everyday law is not a normal everyday loss for you and let me let you know something. It's crazy that you bring up the story. I didn't choose like I was looking at a more expensive one. That was a tiny bit flasher because I wanted to spend extra money because I felt like I had earned. This card worked very hard for it. Was the car dealer. WHO said to me? Hey to say that car because it's way more money, but you should probably. He was saying wow. Wow and it took me back for two seconds. And he looked at me in a very like he was also black granite. No I thought to myself. Wow. You are absolutely correct. This is my second car that I have purchased in Los. Angeles and this is the second car that I've driven. And I will tell you in a nutshell. When I look at that car everyday when I get in that car I am thankful that I got that white car. Because I, had the black car with the black firms had ahead the blackhawks with the black tin. Yes, I probably would have been profiled and that's something that people don't even have to think about. Even when it comes to my workout clothes, I run in Beverley hills because I live on extra beverly. Hills Hollywood when I'm running in beverly. Hills. It's a different outfit than what I wear when I go to the gym when I go to the gym. Girl you get set me on fire with the I. Have I would be care, but I make sure I wear my limit. Are My Nike Lime Green? Jacket because I. Don't want people to think that all black because I'm casing your houses lung. is terrible that is terrible. Yeah, so I feel I. Feel like it's those simple messages that we don't get or we don because we're so busy without lives, but it's been. It's simple messages that we can relate to the march, or you know what I mean. It's like you have to. You have to weigh your Lululemon like you to sit. There doesn't look at your casing the casing joint so mock marriage present the question because I find in I'm Pat. Be Open and be like it didn't cross your mind in your life. That's. You can be completely honest. But when you see people, gay men or women posting at the beach, are you know having Brunch or you know what they're drinking at the moment? Does it anger you as much as it angers me? It highlights people's complete time, deafness and lack of empathy I don't I'm not throwing people under the bus, but I literally went through a lot of profiles on Instagram to see my friends. Who did the post the black pitcher in? The same thing and there is a lot who did not do it, and I mean these mix people these gravy. And they're the ones not posting. I'm not okay like what? I often say to people and I am hypocrite because when this first started I'm. GonNa Call Myself Out I'm such a hypocrite. I said you can't force people to jump on this if they don't want to, are they don't feel the need to. You can't force people postings, but now that we're so deep into it a change, my opinion in the sense that I feel I could texting me. You're calling me anger. Saying I'm here for you in a big about you and you haven't posted during instagram. It really angry swing and I messed up last night, but adds to glasses of wine in a Margarita and I started the avalanche people. I started the uncomfortable conversations in a group. Group chat up with my friends who haven't posted anything. And their response is while I donate it and I gave money to X. Y. and Z., and it's like well. How do people know that hot and the people who look up to you? Turn to you and see that your face in this community. How do people know that you silently donated? If you don't post that you donate it, how are they gonNA, know, but I feel like in that moment what it felt like to me was you're trying to curate your instagram? You're trying to use. You're trying not to use this platform that you have that. You've been blessed with followers and to have people that look at you aren't using it to say I e. All migrants pain are I'm here with this person or registered to vote? Even as simple registered vote, because guess what the boat is still going to help you. No matter what side you're on. As primers tonight. It's Mary today and I just. I feel a sense of disappointment towards certain people in our friend group. He I also don't WanNa put I also don't WANNA cost. Shine either because it's not A. Collector That technically Shaima people for not doing it, but I'm very aware of who is part of it. Who was listening? who was simply? Not You know what I mean, I'm very I'm very. Very clear. It's very weird. I am in Orange County. It's very clear in Orange County and it's funny. You use the word shame, and I have to stop myself. I have got to stop myself from the shame, but from shaving people, but I have to be honest if we are that close. I don't feel like I'm shaming you I feel like I'm having an uncomfortable conversation, and if a conversation is uncomfortable, it's probably the one that you should have had a long time ago. Raw in I. Don't see it ashamed people. I see it as. Opening up a new realm of my friendship in my life to people and I, think uncomfortable things that we don't talk about death in our friend groups. We don't talk about losing. Our parents are losing. You know siblings early on our allies, because it never comes up that conversation, never organic. This is our Ganic time to have a conversation about race. If you are lucky to have black friends, Yup, it's like Nancy Tom. Now now the time because you know what if somebody in your family died, guess what that conversation would be uncomfortable. You'd be organic to have that conversation. So why not have that conversation now? I think it's It's absolute Tom have that compensation, so I'm literally. A few and I'M GONNA message I'm just out of curiosity. Why just out of curiosity why you posted a single pitcher? It's bizarre, but it's really. Telling you on a lot of people's characters, so yeah. And I'm happy that that's coming from by the way loop Nero is Australian. He looks like a young Burt Reynolds F-. y'All he is white as Some visits, not coming from another Blackburn. An just yeah I don't WanNa be shamed. I don't want people to feel shame I don't want people to feel like we're coming down on them and I need to watch myself, but I had to apologize to a few people ask name and I didn't mind I didn't mind apologizing. Now. There's People's reaction when you did confront them like what was their reaction? One person was very much so like. I have been fighting with family. Members have been fighting with friends all this week. Defending this Excellency another person said which I respect and I get it. I work in industry that's populated by Republican. People and I don't want to lose clients, which again I'm cool with that. If you don't WanNa, lose your bag I, get. On acting and indefens- TO A lot of people don That's exactly the scenario like it's. It's Republican Lantieri Me One on foreign, so I can, I can get away with a lot more. That comes out of my mouth, but also I just been up a gate tower club in the middle of Orange County. So that's already confronting anyway, so there's not much more I kinda. Confronted stapling mold than doing so so so. The participating in the this movement is. Comes from an easy place the morning day. It's funny, because this is the craziest part about all of it, I have friends. Who can't believe that I'm participating so much in this movement? Because they think that I am on a network that's predominantly white with predominantly white audience with you know with people. I run in circles that are predominantly Republican and certain people feel a certain way about it and for me. Yeah, I've been kinda quieted this whole time because I was waiting for the moment to make my voice as loud as possible. Because if I'm sitting there and I'm fighting ten battles in a span of four years, people are like. Oh, he's just fighting again, but if I. I raise my voice for one thing at the right moment. I feel like it's going to get hurt in. It's going to make a difference, and that's why a termite speaker on during this because it's not about one incident. It's not about this other incident that happened here or here or here here it's about everything and I waited until the tipping point to really make my message. And if that makes some people uncomfortable, Soviet. There's a fiscal line. He too, so we talked about how. People don't make their Clinton their clients uncomfortable with Republican or oil, very conservative. Whatever people don't WanNa make their clients uncomfortable, so there's that there's that financial. Lay that people don't want to upset want to. Upset that right so so for me. Arms Using Orange County as an example. I feel like Orange County's of very socially. Democratic mindframe they all. Got, can't he oxidant Kate, but they are fiscally conservative to the bone so. Though, unfortunately money always. Being yes, so everything and this is part of the lesson that this whole moving is trying to teach i. know diluting bad destruction of businesses is bad, but the fundamental reason why this is happening is to tell people that. The stealing of a handbag in the burning down, mccower of building is still less than the death of a human dame right. And people still don't get that. That stolen Gucci Handbag is still not as important as the death of a human being, so I want I want to ask people tell me which is worse. Pick your line. It's a very plea line. It's a very clear lane and it's again. I'm going to say it because I. Don't want anyone to come from my ask on this situation. I understand if you are afraid to do it because you're afraid to lose a job, you're afraid to lose a client. You're free to lose that income, because I don't know who you have to support what you've worked for. That is I am COO. Coo Medina in that moment. But? Yes, you're right. You have to think about it that way. You don't believe in what's going on and if you can't separate the looting from the protesters, because it is two different things. What is more important and the news keeps on showing the same things they keep on showing the negative. They don't show the positive in nats. The problem and I was Air I saw it. I feel like news stations have been highlighted can see some of the cracks in their reporting. Yes, now it's very obvious because we've all been at home. We've been sitting in front. Front of the TV twenty four hours so when you in front of a TV for twenty four hours start to look out today formulas right, and it's literally it's the same destructive loop. You could own networks twenty times a day when it happened once in a two hour time frame, it was dealt with a moved on, but as an audience. It's like this whole will is. Like, burning to the ground, where good editing and for me, I'm just I just run. A club I'm not in media. I could see these you can see the narrative. Very clean up. I'm not here to make anyone feel bad about not participating about participating I. Just want to shed some light in a resourceful way in a passionate way that just makes you realize that in any way shape or form that you can start the conversation you should, even if it's with your kids, start the conversation. Start conversations with your partners. Start the. The conversations with your sisters, brothers colleagues coworkers start those conversations, no matter how big or small you think you're, you're reaches. It doesn't matter and if you don't feel comfortable, starting those conversations, that's fine as well. Go ahead log on black lives matter dot com, you can see and get resources on how you can participate actively or silently, but do what you can. Thank you so much joining us today? We super appreciate it. You're welcome. What did you think what did I think This is the most important day. I call you lady, but. Yes. As long as it's clear that I'm not a care, and that's all I care about. L. Make Life don't. Don't make me sound like a Karen because originally. That's what White Lady Vanessa sounded like, but as long as it's clear that that's not. Who I am I want to make this clear as possible I'm not doing this episode to make anyone feel ashamed. Of course. If you feel uncomfortable, having this conversation and you got through this whole episode in you are here with us today. Thank you for sticking around and thank you for being open to listening to this okay. If. You made it to the end of this conversation. You have already done more than you realize that's right. That's the point of having uncomfortable conversations. If you didn't log off and you didn't say Oh, this is not for me. I applaud you and I, appreciate. Real guys was that. This curfew hitting a warning curfew for tonight curfew for tonight at six PM. This is the climate that we're living in right now. And this is why we're having this conversation. You a question for you because we talk a lot about your family on this. podcast about your. Daughter. Taste. You mean. You're. By the way your husband is hot. I that. Daughter. What are some of the conversations that you're having as a partner and? What are those conversations? You're having as a parent because I don't have even. See, there's my standby. And it's going off today. Those are important conversations that I've tried to have in my family for very long time and fell adamant about having with my daughter since she could understand. I also have an interracial family though it's been an important conversation. I haven't turned her away from the news. She's seen some of the protests. She's only six years old, and some people might disagree with letting her. See some of this stuff on the news, but. She's seeing the protests. She's even seen some of the violence We try not to let it play all day because I. Know can be overwhelming for a six year. Olds but I haven't pushed out of the room. If I've been watching it, and if she asks me questions a very clearly answer them. As she's asked me why why? Everyone's protesting and and what that means, and so I've kind of tried to explain to her. The difference of the protesting breath the lose in the riots and I've explained that you know the people walking with the signs and marching are spreading a message of positivity in they are trying to spread love and equality, and she was like what is equality me and I said that every single person in the world, no matter where they're from no matter what they look like no matter what color of their skin, there, the same and my daughter happens to have her best friend is African, American, so her mediate response was Oh like me and Zoe and I. Yeah I said exactly, so she understood immediately. She's a y. wire their fires. Those more people that are angry. Those are some some of them are bad people. Some of them are angry. People and I said it it, but that's not what our messages right now and I. Just really tried to explain that to her, but. You know in my house, even something as little as. When I went to the store to buy her first set of barbies I, refused only by her blond Barbie good for you. Her first round of barbies were multiple african-american barbies different hairstyles. There was like a mixed Barbie. There was the white. There was an Indian Barbie so if you were to look at all of the barbies in her room, she's got every color every shape every size. because. I felt like even something as small as that was still a message to someone of that age at three years old four years old when she started to get her dolls. And I was born and raised in Los. Angeles I was went to school it very mixed school, so I've never understood racism, and never been part of. It wasn't raised that way, so I do fully believe one hundred percent that it starts at home and that it starts very young. Because my family has always been woke. I remember even as far back as when I was a very young girl. My Grandmother was awarded of the Courts for foster children. She would on foster children in you oversee kind of the foster parents. You know to make sure that they're doing proper and stuff like that. And we had an African American girl named chantal. It was really just our family who my grandma was. The word of WHO would come to family dinners. Who would come to holidays? who she her prom dress for who so even from the youngest age seen? The lines of compassion and caring throughout my family, you bet. Ya and so I've just I just really believe like when I saw your post. You start kind of posted that mean with like the heart with the House with the world that starts here and I believe that you know we. We are responsible for teaching our children how to be better. One hundred and I look if you can teach your kid about Santa Claus and she can grasp the Easter bunny or the tooth, fairy, or any of those things I know people say this is too early to have conversation in you know. My response says it's never too early. That Aman comes down from your chimney. You won't hurt you on on Christmas Day. He got deliver toys and he might come in your house and your kid is like okay. We we Gucci then you talk about how sometimes these people are often seen as cargo and violent, but they are your friends, and they cool, and they are human, and just because he's darker than you doesn't mean that you're different, you're the same. It can as you're prettier, that's what I tell my kids exactly. I think it's one of those things where. I want to do point this out that some people think. It's too late. I can't have those conversations because I have teenagers. It's never too late now. It's definitely not. It's never too late to say. Hey, you see what's on the news right here. You know you're generation has to be better because my generation or grab pop-ups. Generation wasn't right. I'm not saying that all people who say silent are bad people. I think people are just an uncomfortable place and I will use that excuse. To help people get. You know having those conversations. I see a lot of people on twitter. Say you're not black enough. You've been making excuses white people for a very long time, and that's not it I. WanNa make people feel comfortable I want. People feel like it's okay to say the wrong thing because it is okay to say the wrong thing right now. Have used the wrong thing. We can get to a place where we're helping you save the right thing. I was thinking about the word uncomfortable. With these conversations and something POPs into my mind a little bit and I thought to myself well, at least if someone's uncomfortable, it means hopefully that they care. Versus. The care that they don't want to send the wrong message that they care. They don't WanNa. Insult someone so. I feel like uncomfortable is a better place to be than someone who doesn't give it. It's the people who have been able to ignore it God I. Wish had that superpower, God billing if I'm ever X. men are ever bid by in spider. I. Hope it's a power to ignore what's going. On around here in coping, never happen or that racism that exists are that Ebola is not creeping up on our. That barneys New, York. Union. Swear Guy I swear to the board I would literally walk around here and want that superpower. Ryan saving by being visible Legis have the super of living in a world where rose colored glasses, and I think those people have just ignored the problem and have been comfortable ignoring the problem for a very long time, and they want to continue to do it and I don't know. Where that comes from, because I've never been able to ignore the problem, but I will say this I equate it to those moments when you in high school or when you were in junior high and you saw someone get bullied even if it was a friend. Even if it was a classmate and you watched, and you didn't say anything or you walk past it because you didn't want to get involved. That has happened to me in my life a few times and I have walked past. I will be the first one to admit I walk past, but I'm also going to be the first one admit that later on down the line it might have been days. It might have been hours. It might have been months sometimes years I. always regret not saying anything. You don't WanNa live in that regret and I think that that's why ignoring. It is a problem I mean. I don't know that ignoring it gives you the power I mean I know. I know that you're joking and you're saying that like. Oh, I would love to be able to ignore things into live in that bubble, but. Is Part of the problem. I know and I know that people. Maybe, don't understand what it is to have white privilege because I don't think they actively do it. It's not something that they're doing intentionally. Have you ever seen that video of the coach? Who lined up all the kids? So just in case anything listening hasn't seen it. Coach lined up a group of kids, white and black I think there are high school students. And he told them that they were going to have a race right, and that every kid who answered the question before they started the race to take two steps forward any acid series of questions you know like who's ever had to worry where their next meal came from whose parents are still married. And all of the questions he asks had the white students taking two steps forward, and all the black students still back in the line, and then he made all of those kids look back and understand now. This is nothing you've done, but this is the example of the life you live. One hundred percent so powerful. It's so powerful and it's so. Easy to have even that moment with those kids who probably wouldn't have had it in their homes. My community and I'm a black person, so I can say this and I can talk talk about this community because I'm apartment. We sometimes want get in the street and we protest, and we will walk seventeen miles to make a point, and we will screen in people's faces in. We will make assigned, and we were gathered ten people to walk our asses from one end of Los Angeles to the next from one in DC all the way to Philadelphia. But we don't take the two minute drive to go and vote. And remind everybody that you need to take that energy to the polls on November third. Because if you ever thought in your mind that it didn't matter, my vote is not that matter. That's the point where we're all the same. You it your word, two dollars or two billion dollars about costs, the same amount of money, and it means the same amount when it comes to those numbers. Get Out in vote and I'm telling you right now. If I get word that thirty percent of you didn't show, are twenty. Five percent of you didn't show up. I'M GONNA be so mad. It's GonNa be fun, and I'm gonNA replay all these videos two weeks, leading up to November third of how mad you guys were higher, saying buyer and how you up in arms about things you have got to get out and vote right? It's easiest way to make the change. Is the easiest way and I never wanNA hear I. Don't have a ride. I didn't have to get their vote in place was. That is easy to do based in your car. You can get on a bus you know. I just. I don't know and I want to thank everybody for again. Making it here, 'cause. This was a big deal. If you made it to this point I'm here and thank you for having this conversation. I think it was really important for us to. Do this and thank you for having an open dialogue and helping people understand how they can be supportive and not have it be an angry conversation how it be a real open dialogue. Thank you guys so much for listening to justice. I know this wasn't the fun Sherby normal usual conversation that we have but.

Is a lot of people i. don't like Oh. Let me say here's what I think is hilarious. I won't say any names, but I've been following online all these call out things what is hilarious once you call someone out and do this. The Internet ships that spoke to you and goes all right. Let's see what that motherfucker slipped up and then they start. Hey, what about this when you did this? And then they start airing that person down. It's like. I like how all of these people get retro retroactively offended by something that came out when they were like thirty five. Forty two like Oh my God! What kind of world was a world? You were limited when you were thirty five. Seven years to be offended by this, and now all of a sudden everything's shifted analysis. You're going to get all offended that. We got a little whistle. These guys. These kids are taking their shirts off in front of my bus, taking pictures. It's a dad with his three kids I think they're out for father's Day. I think they're out there for you, Bert. That's probably his father's Day gift. You connect with the people, Burt. You'd man i. had the coolest experience yesterday we get done the Rio Grande. And these fans came out and we're tailgating by my boss, but they were. Here's. You gotta say the everyone has been super cool about me, saying hey, man I gotta keep distance from like MP around you, so they tailgated and there was like a a barrier and they were hanging out with were having beers with this barrier between us if catching up and they're like this, I was in a speedo. It was greatest experience. I'm not Austin one person who's been who's been Kinda dickey's about a social distancing. Everyone gets it. Everyone understands it and it's it's been. It's been really cool man. I love my people on your tour. Doing a good job at Denny's not so much the tour. Any still that's on, Dennis! The get no states for the first time I thought I thought. I wouldn't have a problem with it at all God. Damn it. It was just clumsy. Just. That's inevitable. Haven't gone the gym in four months. I mean it was so stumbling where you're just like like normally got in your pocket. You're like Oh, and then you just sitting there going how what's next? What's next and then the next time we did two shows. The next number stage started flowing a little bit and then tonight. We have two shows in San. Antonio. That'll be great, and then then we're often New Orleans. We do a crawfish boil tomorrow. New Orleans man. That's one of my favorite places I it is show there earlier this year and then went to the college super bowl, lsu versus clemson tigers the tiger. Tiger's I had a great time. Ramos was the most from in this quarantine. What are you miss the most doing? Is it concerts sporting events? Like, what are you miss the mode? What's the first thing you're GONNA do when they go. Quarantine lifted. We Cure. Everyone's got cure coming in the mail on Monday. What are you GonNa do that first weekend? I'M GONNA. Fly Helicopter! My wife gave me the green light to do it today because it was father's Day, but I want I. Don't want to leave my family on father's. Day so I'm GonNa fly later on this week first time since before the Koby Bryant Shit just kind of. Took all the fun out of it. You know what I mean That was a bit of a bomber. Obviously, so you try rusty when you fly. If you haven't flown in a while, Oh God, yeah, right here on the radio making bad calls and just yeah, it's just like anything else. If you don't do it then you're not good at it so I you know I obviously go up with an instructor or whatever? And you know. I've gotten to know some people out there and I got a friend who knows a guy who has a star, which is the one the cops slide that one's fucking awesome, so think only to go up once. This month might as well go up. In Style and and also something nice and big. Everybody can see and Shit. You know saw At clip of you and Rogan, talking about mass is so funny and it got so many of us, but I love I love how the media wants to wants to pit. You guys like as I know. We will both having a good time. I said it and I. Love Making Joe Light. That was like a great got laughs from Joe. That's what I liked about it. And then it becomes like this everything gets like politicized in all of that shit was just two guys hanging out joking around with each other breaking balls. It's. Just, it's crazy what's going on? Is it just seems like a weird time you know. Tape I think you got your finger on the pulse. This is this is definitely strange. Normal, they you. You know what separates your comedy from other people stand up in. Eighty to get to the root of what's. Around it as we all dance around it, but you just you just get right in there. I. Thought that for four months you're right Bert. This is a weird time. Man We're trying to teach. Hey. Zeus trae how to swim. Not In the Rio Grande not. We tried we tried to pool yesterday, and then we took him out to the Rio. Grande was a life preserver. Because it's shallow the Rio Grande only like it never gets deeper than four feet where we were. But do teaching a grown man swim is fucking scary. Cause panic muscles are no joke. Oh, yeah, so I if I was GONNA try to teach an adult how to swim the first thing I would do shallow, and I get him to be comfortable with the head under the water, so just be like you control everything. Hang onto the side. Close Your eyes. And then go under global. We're GONNA work it up to like ten seconds fifteenth that you comfortable under there. Maybe get some boggle's. We can say. And then all you gotta do is just like face. Plant and you'RE GONNA float. Don't move. Just hold your breath at any point. You can just put your foot down. Show. That's not the way to do it. I'm sure. Lifeguards going to be like. which will? Wait a make. middle-aged men drown with that misinformation. That's what we did. We took him to decide. He held onto the side and he put his head in the water, and then we had them blow bubbles, and then we had him. Flutter kick holding onto the side. Then we flutter, kick and let go of one hand athletically and then Dave Williamson. And pushed him to me like we were kids and that was a huge mistake. Because he grabbed off like like. It was. He grabbed onto me like panic like when you felt a grown man us all his muscles and we were like all right. That's not gonNA work. You quite autumn. We like we'll pick this up tomorrow. We'll try to. Hit it again tomorrow. But. He moved forward the right. He's moved forward. He's now. Go underwater like you can don't underwater. That's great. That's half the battle right there. It's crazy when you know. When you when you look at something like like, say learning a new language you go, God seems. But think things like. or Swimming or those kind of skills that are. Seems like everyone's just takes granted when you haven't done it in your grownup it R- it is. He was legit. Terrified like legit. And it just seems like something so many people take for granted. You know what I mean. Yeah. Sorry. Do you remember the add more to that? But I just one hundred percent agreed with this. Remember. Do you remember learning how to swim? Yeah I learned late for kids so I was like in. Third or fourth grade? Really Yeah, well. We just didn't have a pool. You know my friend across. The street had an above ground pool when I was really young. But. Yeah. No, and then she. My mother got us all into swimming lessons. Embarrassing because it was all like these kids and like nursery, school and kindergarten learn how to do the doggy paddle and I was like two feet bigger than. But, then once I got it. I really took to it and I love it. Yeah. I learned. My uncle threw me in the pool. There was zero left turns of surprises. The second, he said. My Uncle Mike Heathrow in the pool. No, rocks Robson your bathing suit just to make it a little tougher note just through. So, they can find out who the run to the litter was. Romy in the pool. If parents didn't tell my parents. So, this'll teach him, and he just threw me into. My Dad is a very. He's always been a very sensitive liberal like feelings guy like never never ever said any slur of any type. That's not my dad. He's not a locker room. Talk guides very sensitive. And My. Dad lost his sparking shammy. Basically killing. You're killing someone's kid. Technically I would love to have seen video of that. I gotTA. Tell you your uncle was way out of line. Way Out of line. Even back. That is way out of line. That what happened. He fishes you out. I started swimming. I don't I just really refuse to believe that. All of a sudden you turn into like. Mark Spitz do the flip turns to just because you had. I don't I don't remember it all, but that's how I learned I got thrown in the pool, and and then I started swimming after that. And gradually learned how to swim. You didn't just start swimming I. Think I figured it out I. Remember, do I. Remember I remember. I took swimming lessons but I. Remember Knowing Dog Paddle. That was my dog out. I was like okay. See I just needed you to clarify that because people listening to this. Image is GONNA throw their kid in there. Thinking that all of a sudden we start doing the butterfly across the fucking pool. Dude I could never do the butterfly. That's one thing that I go. I wish I could do the butterfly. It looks so pretty. Does it. It looks like you're snow plowing a pool. Looks just that picture of you with your arms up in your face above the water, the goggles on I would love to have one of those. There's one hundred percent showing off. It is the most inefficient movement. Human being could ever do if they ever trying to get across the water that porpoise kick alone. Okay how much effort that takes and then to like rather than just the fluid. The crawl is the shit. That's what it is. That's that's the deal right there. Sorry I gotTa shut this. After. I just texted you both a clip that was going around this week of a woman who, through like a six month old into the old. Maybe Oh my God I'm not watching. On the bad one, it's like she's a swimming instructor and the kid. Just start swimming like it's not. Oh, it is Oh my God I love this. And he just. Holy Shit. Oh. Here's a baby. Lend credence, birds story you know. Here's the thing. The baby has an inability to panic. I mean you're gonNA float like after adults who can't swim after they drown, they float up like that to. Get you. People legit drown. They were. There was a big thing on I. Got It. I wish I could remember. I thought it was unreal sports about starting these. Others football player. Who didn't know how to swim. and. He said it was a big province. People pushing each other in the pool, and if you push pools gotta be fucking terrifying. To you if you can't swim. And to be. Ardian secca pedophile. Your it's death to them. It's death. You'll looking at it like Oh, wow, this is great little lower and are there burt. I'm having a tough time. This father's Day. Because I. I realized that win. I have to learn how to let people do shit for me. Is I. Sit there I don't need anything I don't need anything. Then it sucks for them because they can't do stuff. And then afterwards I. Look at all my friends and went golf with my son I did this and I'm like. Why don't I do I low self? Esteem is rearing its ugly head, so my wife was going. Hey, what do you want for dinner? Let me get something special. Got, all that food in the French. Let's just eat it up. It stresses me out when there's extra food I. Don't like food out I. Just see you looking at me like oh boy. This is fun. I said I. You're right. You're right. So what is your? What is your father's Day? Look like I'm on the road. I had mine last week. What have I done today? well. I hung out with my wife and beautiful kids and then I I know I did something. I worked out. We have my kept. What's going through Rehab with the shoulder? And Did a couple of boxes here in the office I mean at some point this the office is GonNa Look Great. I'm on my way, so I just have to you know I've been doing just shit like that. Let's say as the deal to. If there wasn't this quarantine right now I would go out with all of them tonight to some greasy spoon, mom and pop place. Everybody gets burgers in I'd get a burger split a burger. My wife in a root beer float, maybe a little fucking stick I'm going back to the sticks. Dude I fucked up, really fucked up burke. With Joanna went. Oh, I should have said now I'd already smoke in two days in a row. Somebody got me some cigars great cigars. Well my birthday. So! It was the night before my birthday and I was gonNA. Wait to my birthday, but then I was like. Oh, it's my last day of being fifty one. I'll smoke one so I smoked at, and it was my birthday and I did zoom call with all my friends. You know what I mean. L., A. Buddies and we did that. So I was like all right. Those are my two. You know because I had none in February one in March and April two in May. To June, and then I was done, and then I did Rogan so, that was the third one. And then they were laying around so I had a fourth one. And then yesterday Buddy Mike came by brought flowers. Baena having a baby. Nick Craig came by and I was like. Hey, you want us again. That was number five. But it's the thing i. only have like two cigars left. And I'm not buying anymore. In the reason why I was able to go for so long is I. Just didn't have them in the house so. I'm kind of Confident that I can go back, but. I woke up. I took the stake out of a talk manic. Fuck up! Up. Dude I brought cigars with me here. And I. But I'll tell you what I've gotten rid of the thought process of of wanting a cigar Simon had one I haven't had a cigar and probably. Got Probably like. Four months I'm guessing. And so yesterday were floating the Rio. Grande and we have beers got these great. IPA's it all suddenly go. Oh, Shit I should've brought a cigar. This is perfect being an Innertube, smoking, a cigar and my brain. Normally, my brain was like flood. The river makes you bring to cigars. You know what one at the beginning and then the middle or towards the end. Enough Beers makes you more than enough beers more than enough cigars, extra lighters, one's GonNa fall in the water. and. Ours noses God. Damn it I. Guess I forgot like the addiction part wasn't there. Yeah. It's. Being free of all your devices. Is An amazing three days. Is An amazing. It's an amazing. It's just. I am once. You've opened that Pandora's box. It's really hard to. Know what you're missing because I look at my the first seventeen years of my life, I was basically straight edge. You know what I mean just I just you know not being a kid. So every weekend I wasn't like. Oh God, I mean I need to get a buzz I had never done it, so I was excited to watch the six million dollar, man or some shit. That was my bucket cigar for the weekend, so I was sort of wondering if you can kind of go back to that. Because I. Don't watch porn anymore I don't drink anymore. I had cigars at bay. But then I worry like then the maggots be like a six hundred pound. Person Is I feel like those people that get that big is they don't do anything else. Because that and then if you're a creative overeater. Can go eat a gallon of ice cream? But the people that came up with sticking the candy bars in there.

We went with a bunch of Comedians to central park in play. just touch football in the first time in my life I hired somebody a watch out for watch. He's fast. I almost fell down laughing. Do you realize how fucking slow? You? Guys are out of shape. If you think I'm fucking fast. because. I was slow at the peak in my life, and now I was thirty so. We went.

Did he get to the kids or no? No, we left. We walked away. We laughed. He didn't get his money back or anything. We walked away. My Dad's is probably afraid of what he was going to do to those kids like. Let's get the fuck Outta here before I swing the bat at him John Yeah. He we! We walked in I. Remember they were. As you up the batting cages, you won't pass the bumper boats and they were on the other side of the bumper boats than we were at my dad's still had the baton hand and was yelling at these kids fucking. And I'm, but my dad's all about like. Like. No confrontation like he doesn't like like. Do not say anything. Don't don't call anybody. Don't send an email like like like when all this stuff goes down, you know online and everyone's like Burt. What's your take on this? I hear my dad and my head going. Hey, they'll say a word. Just listen. Let the chips fall. Don't be the first guy to reply. They'll be the first guy to be standing like posting stuff online. Like that's my dad is like very measured. Too. SMART WAY to be. Reminded me of I. got the Shit kicked out of me at this carnival one time. Displaced Rocky Point. I think it was in Rhode Island. So I was an altar boy, they used to take down for the altar boy retreat where you get to go on all the rides for free for being an altar boy for the year I was not touched. So. We go down and we going on all the rides for free. We were having a great time me and my other altar boy, buddy, we will. We're on this ride. That took you over the over the park. You know they'll swing. So he takes you out, and then it brings you back. So you know I was having a good time, so we run up and there was some kids who come down this way. Was We passed? One of them laughed ago. Hon Do that all right? And he turns around and goes second. Waiting for you and I was like Oh shit right. My Buddy didn't know how to fight and we. We start coming around, and as I'm going back down I see on the ground, pacing back and forth like a fuck in lion, and he's got like five kids with. One of those deals I got off, and they circled around me, and they all started pushing me and every time I would gain my balance. They'd push me again and then. I just got stomped into the ground. My buddy sat there and watched it. And I remember I was just aw. Factory Elbow was all skinned my. And I went over. And, then it made the dumb movie like. You pretty tough with all your friends. Right is what I said. I would have been over what I say that I had to save some face. So I walked over to the bumper cars. Worst car ride ever to get to get on to try to get your shit together. And I remember standing in line. And then the kid who I yelled at who had a dead tooth already in his age. The outweighed me by. He was like it was a little trucker. Is What the fuck? Somebody sitting down. You can't tell how big they were. Was Way out of my weight class. And I was in the the line. And I just feel as kid cost from buying a turnaround. That dead tooth shed was like. Right my grill. He goes. My friends aren't here now now. What's up and I'm like not saying. And then I got on the bumper cars, trying to get my shit together every slamming into intimate, and after that right, I just went back to the bus. The Big Long Yellow Bus I'd just stayed on their eating my lunch. My mother Dax me and at this point, it was like a tuna sandwich, so it had to be at least eighty degrees and was just sitting there like I. Just Want Day to be over. A lot of those Bert. I? A Lot? And then bill won the fight when I was a kid. There was a lot of losing to the losses.

I took a nice one at rocky point. I took a nice one. was there was adults around? It was weird. It was sort of the middle of the week, so it wasn't a lot of people there, but that was enough people there to step in and people did not. No stepping in. L.! I'd rather be the guy that lost the fights than like I remember the guys that won the fights, their lives and the dude, the big bad ass dudes in high school. Their lives have never turned out well. Like it doesn't. There's no connective tissue with. Being able to beat everyone up and then just succeeding in life. I all those guys that beat the shit out of everyone or just kind of like losers now that knew. That's not the case where I'm from. My grade is like wildly successful like when I went back. For a reunion twenty fifth reunion, and then I also met a bunch of on the road. Every one of them has a job. It seems equally, if not more interesting I thought I was going to be like. You. Know a buddy my going like. Oh, yeah I heard about you when I was in the US. Rome! He was like working for like I. Don't know like the FBI I. Don't know what he was working. It was and I was listening to his stories like Gee. I just tell jokes. They all yeah lot of people own their own business businesses and a lot of 'em to you know. When knuckleheads! When I was a kid, did knuckleheads not being? They were down, but they were they definitely they had their fun. So A. Guy That my class, I follow him on Instagram. And Why do you follow me Instagram? Photo couple hate on instagram. Couple of guilty pleasures that I check in with. But I I don't root against them, but there's definitely When this the show within the Shell? On somebody's is what they're presenting everybody's buying and then you. You're laughing at the subtext of all of it. Yeah, I got a couple of those. I do I yeah I I find it fucking comical. There's a bunch of people follow, and then there's people I, don't I? Don't follow, but I go to their profile once week and check out what bullshit they've said. Just like us. Well, that's my I. Don't follow him either, but I check in like once every six months. When I'm on. I'm on the road in. This is what my goes when I go late night. On on Ebay it's like not on Ebay on the Internet I ended I always end up at Ebay but I I start off with like. I Watch old sports. You know been watching a bunch of old NFL stuff. which then? Me Shit when I was a kid. I start trying to find old commercials to when I was a kid and then old toys, and then I go on Ebay just to see if anybody has them and what they're going for like bikes that I wanted when I was a kid or shirts or old patriots gear I've found all of that shit. Light night then every once in a while I think about people I went to high school with I check up on him on facebook. They're all doing seem to be doing great. Which is cool? And then I start if I get really like lonely on the road I start Google Earth old houses I lived in. In seeing what's up the trees I used to climb what they look like. I'll Dude I. go down. I go down a fucking i. don't know what. What a radical! What, what you don't seem like someone gets caught up on in online drama like you just stay out of it totally. Yeah and I've had plenty of people say Shit. Because, you're not, it's not. You can't win any of this. No winning any of it. It's it's. On then then you're the fucking asshole, and then also like so much of a lot of it has also really helped my conspiracy theory, because like some of the conspiracy theory that people have come up with. With me. In the way I am now versus the way I was and how they time. My Wife intuited shit and I just set the goal like wow man, but you look at how they put it together, and it does make sense. Is Far as it is a here to here to here to here. It's just none of it is factual, but it all looks like it makes sense so i. just I stay out of. All of that and I said I avoid. Hello Hi and bye, but people who are really. On social media. Like. You know the two candidates engage endangered and every time you put out a fucking multicolored t shirts part of the problem. Whatever the fuck that I just stay I just give them a wide berth. I got I got Last night. I got. A call. From someone saying. Did you behave appropriately with? A comic girl comic and I was like I took this. I won't say her name just out of respect for her, but I. There's a hilarious girl I worked with for. Three years on the road took her with me everywhere. She's awesome John. Yes. And and I guess she put out a tweet saying. There's really great male comedians out there and she named a free milk. And didn't name me. That's all she did was didn't name me. And everyone goes over. There must be something he must have done something to her, and you're like Jesus Christ. Man Like and then. I looked at her and she's like I. Don't know what the Fuck I did. I was just trying to say something. Nice and I was like I just like listen. I'm cool your goal. That's all that matters. Let everyone spin out of control like. You know. Made That's kind of how it works. It worked out in your information and then a ton of assumption, my favorite thing with those cases. Is the people who don't know either person involved. And then they act like they're concerned for the alleged victim while they turned the spotlight of the whole story onto themselves. Those ones that go like an I'm surprised. Why or this didn't surprise me at all like this is me hearing that so and so did X. Y. and it's just like this about you. Are you really going? Dude? I called it with a sexual assault case, and then also if you knew this shit, why didn't you fucking say something? You wait for the rest of us to catch up the fucking you talking about? The sports fan I hated like. Why did they run it I would have to. After. It's up. You ever dated a female comic. Way Maybe. Get back in the day. You're going back like twenty something years. Twenty something years, so I mean nothing dude I was really fuction walled off. Dude I was I was spaghetti. Western guy back then like I would go on the road and do a run. A college dates and I wouldn't talk to anybody all day long other than ordering food, and then Watt and then, and then the next thing after I ordered my Grand Slam breakfast. The next thing I would say hey I'm bill Barham the comic tonight. That would be and I just I. Dude I'm weird I used to like. I went to all the baseball stadiums. I went to all the football stadiums to games by myself during the day. That's how I would kill a day. And whatever the fuck happened to me as a kid made me want to be by myself, because then no one could fuck with me, so I was as an adult I still had that little kid mindset. So? Yeah so I could have had a lot more fun. I did not I flushed just fucking. My ideal one was going to the King Dome in sitting out in Centerfield behind Ken Griffey junior and running to get one of the home runs trying to get it and thinking like I've seen this on this week in baseball so many fucking times. Like that. You know going up into the space needle by myself. I went to the mall of America enrolled the roller coaster. All by myself I did a lot of Shit. By myself. So. Yeah. I'm thinking for whatever reason. My first sexual experience was so bad that it made me terrified to do it with other people like I. Just was embarrassed. I was like I'm I'm just not good at it. And for whatever reason? That is I guess you know? That's the thing that Kinda kept me from dating comics, so I was like I. Don't WanNa do that to someone with a sharp wit, and then have them eviscerate me. and. They're gonNA do a bit. Out with them anytime.

And then Then I I just I'm stunned I always just kind of stunned afterwards like I can't. Believe this, but then. What was it probably like a day later the next day? I think. All wrapped up. He does one of those cute baby yawns. I my is. Awesome. I did I cried when Georgia was born. I took her. That, they let we left Lianne. We took her to go. Get a bathed and get all the little shots. Don You know check route? And the nurse left me in the room with her and went out to get something and I went down and I started telling her who I was. Just thinking about it telling her who I was, and that I was going to be there with her for the rest of her life and. Just, wanted to introduce myself and and I started bawling falling grind. Calendar about. You know, listen you know. All these all these good things are going to happen to you and I'm going to be a great dad and I'm sobbing crying. And I look up in. The nurse has been in the room. Blake half of me just talking to this kid. Just stand there looking at me and goes. You done said I. Am CEO's okay. Let's get WAAS. That, and then they see that you know they. They like seeing that. Yeah! I cried so hard in Georgia was born. The doctor started crying. The nurses started crying and the anesthesiologist started crying. Everyone started crying. Jason Burke, we gotta get in a drama Dude I. Know People's emotions are watch. Let me tell you something bill. Don't watch the time traveler's wife because at the end of the movie. It it is it for me. Was the story of being a stand up comedian always being on the road coming home on week on weekdays I saw the time traveler's wife. I was on a hotel room, naked on the corner bed. Just out of the shower and I start Washington normal sudden sobbing, fucking crying, going like that's me. What is it like? Cats in the cradle like the person not around no it's. It's this guy. The time traveller is Eric, Banham and In order to this is why connected with so much in order not to time travel, he drinks. So that keeps them in in the same place, so he drinks a lot, but when he does for Mehta's situation ever. When I'm sober, traveled at different times by, get shit faced I'll hang with you guys at the second sick. You guys I'm going to quit drinking. I'm going to go on the wagon all the fuck yourself. Love that I love that premise. It's great and then. Any any he I'm sure it's a very problematic script now, but he needs his girlfriend. He meets his wife when she was a little girl like he time travels back to when she was a little girl and I guess you know I. Don't know this could be very problematic. Now put, but the end of the show he end up. He ends up dying. But There is a point where his he has died and realize that sounds a fucking a mate, so if he doesn't drink, e can time travel right? Now but if he gets hammered, he stays there, so he can continue to drink and fuck up when he gets sober. Go back in time and apologize for what he just did. And then come back and continue to drink. And then and then. He when he wakes when he time travels, he wakes up naked, so he's gotta find clothes and and get dressed, but at the end of the movie with beautiful as he passed the time machine dropped usually. There's a couple places. It always drops off one of the places that trump's them. All is the woods by his wife's Childhood House. So that's how he met his wife was, she was a little girl, and he time traveled, and he was naked in the woods, and he met this little girl, and they talked, and they need any, and then ends up. He was naked in the woods. A meets a little girl. It's I. It's a very problematic script now that I talk about it but like. And and so then at the end of the movie he's dead. He's died however so. That just reminded me I. Swear I hate. I always interrupt I. I'M NOT GONNA. Say the movie because I don't want to get people in trouble. I just watched the movie. Everybody fucking loved. And you know got. Great reviews and everything, and there is a scene in there with his kids starts kissing on this chick. WHO FUCKING! Not at not Oliver Functions and I was just kind of looking at my my mother-in-law. Going I couldn't have that in the movie today. What movie is it I'm not gonNA, say. And Andrew Bleep it out. You're. GonNa bleep it out. You're not going to believe. Remember, remember I! Believe your hand over your mouth bill. Oh Yeah. Yeah, yeah, Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah now.

Is he like a special needs kid I know he's just no, he's just like crazy. And I'm like Oh. Okay, and then it to the end where where you find out that. They've all hooked up with the COP who has addict who is immediately? Einhorn Lieutenant, Einhorn finkle, Finklestein Horn yeah, and they've found out all hooked up with this dude and. that. He's got a deck. They show the deck ever starts throwing up like. You could not do that today. You could not first of all. You're dead naming him by calling him. Right you could not go.

Eyes Wide Open with Liz Culley

"The following podcast is a deer media production. Hey Girl! Hey, welcome to taste of Taylor. It's my weekly podcast. I'm your host Taylor Strecker so today. We're going to do something a little differently than we usually do. Last week. We did not have a new podcast out. Because I joined the amplify the voices movement, and in honor of that. I decided to my podcast last week. So this week, I'm actually going to be playing an episode from my radio show from last week from last Wednesday, so keep that in mind that this story is about yeah, like a week and a half old at this point and just to clarify I know it's confusing. People are like wait. You have a podcast and then another guest. Guest, so I have a podcast Taylor right here would dear media also can I just say I fucking loved your media. There's such an amazing company. It's such an amazing family and I'm just so honored to work with them, so yeah, so I have my weekly free podcast here with your media, and then I actually have a daily talk radio show. Called the Taylor striker show. It's Monday through Friday we have a rotation of co-hosts and it's two hours. It used to be live Wa before the pandemic, and but now over the last few months it's been live to tape, so we will record a day or two before so the only people that get to hear it. Our people who are subscribers and last Wednesday. I did an amazing show with one of my co host Liz scully. She's amazing. Follow her on Instagram at listen to Liz. She's a white woman. But she really has a firm grasp on racial issues, and she's been an advocate for a long time, and you know I feel like I finally have opened up my eyes of white privilege in the last couple of weeks to everything that's going on I used to pride myself on being like political, I thought that I wore that like a badge of honor, and now through opening my eyes, exposing myself to different voices, people of Color Different. Different platforms reading things watching things educating myself. I realize that saying that you're not a political person. Literally is just saying hello I am white privilege. that is a privilege should not be political, and so that's something I used to say, but that's not something I'm going to say anymore, and it doesn't mean that I'm going to become like Rachel. Maddow. Okay I'm not going to talk about politics all the time you know I'm like listen. I know my intellectual limitations, and I know my brand I'm fluff. I'm silly I'm patty and that's not going to go away, but I no longer can stand silent and not get involved, and so for those who follow me for a long time I. Probably you probably think I've gone from zero to sixty, which is totally fair. It's like I went from being like I. Don't talk politics. Stay silent on all important issues because I'm escapism to being like beating a drum. Like so hard and so loud and My intentions are good in my intentions are real, but I understand people being like this is a lot like a very short amount of time so I'm really starting to realize that I need to. Slow down. Really. Listen really educate myself and. I am committed to doing the work, but I need to know that that's not gonNA happen overnight again. Kind of sign of my white privilege, right? It's like I'm fucking Verka assault over here like I want to snozzberry I want it now. That's kind of what white privileges and that's not reality. Okay like important change can happen with the snap of a finger. I have to be patient in when I say after the patient like I. I have to slow down I have to listen. I have to educate myself so I've been over the last couple of weeks on the trucker show covering what I guess I could call my growth in my is being open in through that my friend Liz. Who Your about to listen to? She has been helping me like on a daily basis. You know she's the one that keeps me informed about a lot of these important movements protests. Black and brown voices to follow, so she's really been helping me. Just Grow and be a better person so I just I just love Liz. I can't say enough nice things about her. So last Wednesday I aired an episode with her. where she talked about her experience. Literally during a protest, it was one of the first protests that happens in that happened. In Los, Angeles and it was peaceful in the beginning, and then it ended. Ended up going really left and the chaos that went down ended up going down literally on the front step of her apartment, building an on her street, so she was on the front lines, and she talks about her experience and helping people. This episode was so important I was so proud of Liz and I talk about my growth a little bit, too. Too and I got an amazing reaction, my radio audience, and so many of the listeners who also do listen to taste Taylor or like. Please release this on taste of Taylor. Because it, this story needs to not live behind a paywall. This needs to be available for everybody to hear it. Listen to for free, so that is what I'm going to be playing. Playing for you guys today, because it was like one of the best episodes I've ever done. We're talking about things that are happening right now. That are very important, and even though we're both white women, you know I think that this is an important conversation to have to listen to and Yeah, I'm you know I'm just? GonNa shut the fuck up. And let's get to this week's podcast. I lied. One more thing a lot has gone down this week last week. You know I felt like I was really doing the work. Really listening really learning really growing and then due to something that I posted I kinda got involved in a lot of drama, and my intentions for being allies were being called into question, and after this episode I am going to address. Everything! That's been transpiring this week and hopefully answer some questions for a lot of people, so liz tell us everything from the start that went down so the last time we spoke you and I like five days ago and this is right after George. Floyd was murdered. And then when were the protests in La So Saturday black lives matter which if they're the ones organizing your? The rally or the protest than I would say go. The that was on Saturday and the rally started Kigen not like two blocks from my house, so there's a park called Pan Pacific there and I mean I don't know. Do you want me to just walk you through the day? I mean I. Yeah I. Really Do okay, so we woke up that morning. I was Hungover I. had a rough. I drink a bottle of wine I, said fuck the world I woke opted not get on my Jenky, fo-, Peleton but instead Rachel in our like fuck. We need tampons. Need to go to target. You know. And so he drove to the target at like ten forty five, and they house like Damn. This is fucking tight, because remember y'all corona, so I was like sick. Nobody's around. We can just and then this guy rolled up to the car and he's like we're closing and I was like we talking about. Ten o'clock morning. He's like nope. We're closing all around here. And this is like two miles from where the rally was starting and I was like what am I paying Pacific work is so far away from here. He's like no closing. It I was like okay. CVS four starting to board up board board up so then we go. Do Our shopping come home? Our neighbors started. Started to post that they were going over. Because this is about twelve twelve thirty that they were going over to the Rally Cup to early two blocks I don't even think it's two bucks. Whatever a block and a half from the house and they were posting their like this is beautiful. This is peaceful if I'm being honest with you, guys I. Don't like large crowds. Some, of Y'all has actually in the middle of a pandemic I can Andre Taylor sent. I don't large. especially now hunter present I'm telling you guys like chronically the day because I think it's like it's actually important to see how things can quickly escalate and change. Yes, so I was like I. Don't want to not go probably the dilemma. That urine was like yet, but were like in a global Gemini and like I, don't really want to deal with that also I was in San. Francisco when the giants won the world series, and lest we all forget the looting and rioting and shit that caught on fire that night, and I got caught up and all that and all like never forbidding mean. God. How did caught up I couldn't get home. They were like tipping over fucking buses and Shit and light. Fire So. No, but we all forget this shit. We all find. Teams win.

There are thousands of fucking people out there and. In you'll freak and I was like, but it was super peaceful, super amazing. I did a facebook post rows like fuck y'all saying that this isn't peaceful. This was so peaceful odds babies in strollers whatever? Then all of a sudden i. hear up up up up up. Look out, and there's black smoke all outside and I was like Oh sh-. I take my mask. I go out on our balcony and I'm looking. My neighbor comes out, and I'm like Whoa. What's going on and all these fucking? Kids are flooding my street like running walking. They're walking at this point like okay. So many people at one time and I was like what one kid like screamed up to me like White Bitch get off your income. Join us. I was like listen. I'm old and I was there before I gotta get my I. GotTa Hydrate. Leave me alone then. To the left of me, so my house is in the middle of my block, so to the left of me is Erawan. which is this like fancy fucking grocery store, and then behind that is the grove. The Grove is a huge shopping. Shake you live by that cost to the growth. Yes, I did I did not know that guy. Live like right there so anyway, so I live right there, so. I look to I kind of lean out the window and I look, and it just looks really busy, and then all the sudden we see so those were all those people that were flooding. The street were coming from the right, then from the left. It's like running like a stampede, and I hear a girl and before I, actually heard her say it I. Start Coughing and I'm like Oh. Fuck tear gas everywhere Oh my God. Have you ever experienced that before? Before no, when the fuck getting tear, no your life, you've you've letter? Good good point. No never been to your guy I would never be able to identify tear gas. I don't think yes, you would okay. It feels like fire in your fucking eyes and nose, but we weren't, but think about how far away that is. That's right in the middle of the block. That's how much tear gas. They were releasing, so they start running in. This girl goes. I can't see. I don't know what it was, but I went into full like. fucking G. I.. Jane Mode Run into the fucking house. Grab paper towels, but I'm like panicking, and then I was like Oh. Yeah, we have a spray water bottle for our like succulents and fucking art laundry. Let me grab it, so I grabbed that I run downstairs all the neighbors I live in a four plex. So that means like for you know whatever very la four units in a building. We all run outside I'm like grab water. Grab drinks and we I start spraying. Spraying People's faces and this woman with water and wiping their faces. Oh my God to get all the residue off coughing God. Damn the sucks, and then we'll oh, yeah, sorry to have question. No, Nope, keep go then I'm like Oh shits, popping off right and I'm like what's happening and they're like. They're pushing up from Fairfax and Beverley so basically. What happens with the COPS? Is they build online? They build a wall and they kind of like push for. It's like classic war. The you push forward, you push back. You push poured you fish, but you know what I'm saying like. That's how it works. It's like two frontlines like I dunno Y'all watch the last kingdom like I told you to. They do that shit when they're fighting on horses. You know what I mean up back out fact, no. Watching the footage again, you firsthand be on TV. It was like watching like a war movie. I know I wanted to start screaming Lord. Son of Oak Tree like where are you come, save me by. He was not around, so I'm out there. My neighbors grab water, and then aluminum bowls we, we grab like Red Cups like just tons of like shit to basically give out to people, and then we really couldn't leave the block. That was it so that was that like three, thirty, three, three, o'clock three around three o'clock, and it was basically tear gas just like every ten minutes. On that street, but then these protesters grabbed like industrial sized trash like those trash things outside of like restaurants and fucking made a barricade on my block, were sitting behind it, throwing bottles and shit at the cops, and then they were throwing tear-gas on our street right, so that kind of yeah, so the so the protocol is you throw something at the cops? They then have the right to tear. Tear gas. You Right? That's what I was. I look because I'm trying to understand how a peaceful protests right it goes so left so quick like you said it's just like it's fine and beautiful at one moment and at A. Much energy. But you know thing is is like because I've heard so many different things watching the news. You know so like watching. It's like okay, so those people. They just threw firecrackers. It's like listen. Firecrackers are not necessarily dangerous, but they're scary so like. If you throw that at a cop what you expects going to happen, it's like who the fuck is throwing firecrackers keeping Hughesville. Keep your hands actually. I mean. Here's the thing is like. But, then it's like there's all these things and this. This is a rumor, but it's like I heard somebody say like Oh. There's cops that are posing as protesters, and they're inciting all of this violence to turn. What is peaceful into something? That's negative and I'm like I don't know what to believe. I spoke and then the looting I know I spoke to. We'll get to the looting. Luna Okay So You know I spoke to a friend who said it was really weird like they rolled up on Fairfax. That's where they let the first car on fire they these cops rolled up and they all abandoned the car. And went out into the crowd, and then like they pain closer or were, they weren't plainclothes, and then pretty soon after the car was on fire. There's a lot of theories I personally Liz Kelly. I'm not here to explore those theories because I don't fuck. Those were I'm just going to tell you guys. Exactly. What the Fuck I saw I I was involved in an incredibly peaceful protests, and then I went home, and watched repositories, and then shit. Pop them the fuck off. To land on your block, it's early on my fucking block like not even I'm not talking like. Oh, I live on Xtra and it's like four bucks. I'm talking like in front of my home. I haven't even told you some of the crazy shit so. We're wiping off. Were all wearing sunglasses? Because like we're tearing, you know what I mean. Right and then reach at one point was like honey Erlich Liz Liz. Liz. Pointed to this girl, and she had blood all over her face like Oh my God everywhere. I mean I think you might have seen some of those pictures. Some of my taking pictures of us. Whatever cleaning people up, so this girl wrote rolls up in one of my neighbors was like she got hit by a rubber bullet in the head. I'm like no, she didn't actually she got smashed. She told me she got smashed in the head with a bottle from another protester. Four well done now. Let me clean my language. It very well could not have been a protester person in the crowd that was wearing plain clothes and I. think that's where all of this because it's money, and these opportunists take this opportunity whether they are criminals to do harm or opportunities. Opportunities bad cops to impose force when they shouldn't now guess what guess what else happened during that protest, they are were incredible police officers like the one that you outlined the did the right thing. There are incredible people that are protesting peacefully right. I think we all need to have space and our need to open up our minds that all things are possible, because let me fuck and sell you I saw all that shit crack off. I'm not done okay grow. Her head is split, open. I'm like Dr, Quinn, fucking medicine woman like Oh shit cleaning out her wound. Her gashes bananas I was like you have to go to the hospital like wool. Put Bandages on you, Blake. We don't know what the fuck we're doing. You know what I mean like. We're cleaning you up and stuff, but she was also in shock so classic Liz. Do, you need something to eat. Can I get you some sugar? You'RE GONNA fucking. Pass out because you're adrenaline is pumping. She's like no, no, I'm fine. I can't feel anything. You can't feel anything because you are in shock Buchen and you need to get the fuck Outta here so then she leaves the Home Energy Taylor for the whole day was it was like justice like we cleaned her up? Up and sent her on her way. Then another fucking stampede of people with tear gas or hurt comes running, so we kind of became this little like first aid stoop so to speak, and now he's a you guys. You guys sound were like Mash. It was crazy. I mean the beautiful thing. Is that I barely knew my neighbors in my building before in our all homeys, right, it was. Beautiful. So then. The. Off. So, police started bum rushing our street because they're like clearly seeing that they had made this barricade and Then, the firemen rolled up which by the way like hello for a fireman I'm never I was like? Hey, boys like I'm. With the firemen you know what I mean and I was like also to be honest with you so fucking thankful that the police were on my block. That wasn't until one straight up, pointed a rubber bullet gun in and Rachel's face, and we were like Oh like word is standing here on our stoop, so I will tell you that's the that's the dichotomy. Right? That's the up and down I experience is like. Firemen Fuck. Yeah, if I was single I might try to fuck one of you guys, and then like the police officer. We're so happier year, and then one of them decides to strike point a fucking gun in my face. Well, this is something that we talk about all the time like in regards like social media per se. Riley for one hundred nights. Comments at one negative one that will stick with you, and then that's all you fix it on, and that's all you talk about. About and the same is true for this right, so it's like people want to just make blanket statements about police officers like we were talking before I was talking about Sheriff Chris Wanson in Flint Michigan. He's like he's an amazing amazing. Check out my story or check out my instagram at chillers trucker I posted tons of videos of him because I'm obsessed with them. He is the way we should all be acting right now. He is like a step towards the solution. and. That's the thing is like so we have that dude, point shit at us and I'll continue my story, but then you have that happen, and then that's like that's a lot of people are left with like wolves had another and then let me tell you this day was so crazy. Five minutes later talked to the cops in a different way August. Two that it's all good. Then this so as the fire now in West Hollywood in Hollywood la, the streets are so fucking narrow, so the police and the fire trucks are coming down our street, and then all of a sudden. There's like this red. Sedan an old older read stand kind of Lake Weaving in the street and then pulls over, but not all the way and this kid jumps out looking crazy like. Hurt really hurt and I'm like. Are you okay and he's like I. Ida like kind of not really talking and I'm like dude. You are hanging on your car door in the middle of the street and all of these cop cars are barreling down this tiny little street that I live on. I get into the. Closer and come over here. And then we went and helped him, and somebody had thrown tear-gas was driving, and it went in his car, hit his ankle and then filled up the car. So then hold on. This is like so. Liz Color leg just weighed i. think his ankles totally broken because there's like a huge hematoma like not on it, but I didn't really hear that it was tear gas. I haven't heard the tear gas part yet, but I was like dude. Can I move your car like Whoa? Your car is going to get fucked up. He's like. Like, yeah, the keys are in it I get into the car. I don't even know if I should be whatever I'm just going to I've decided to tell you all the truth, the whole truth and nothing, but the truth I get into the car and there's like a huge. We'd pipe that had just been smoked then like fucking switchblade on the ground and I'm Mike. Is Start watering because it's all tear gas in the car. Hop out the car I was like I'm not fucking with this I'm cool, but I'm not cool. I was like this got drugs and a knife in the car, and I can't even see this fucking. Shit is crazy so my next. was like she was like what's going on. I'm like dude. I don't know what's going on bugging kid and she's like all move Liz. You're a magnet. You are truly a minute hold on I'm not even done so then. What Would experience this and then you. Look down at the kid and we've gotten him is because we were like running in and out of house, like getting people, ice packs and stuff for the rubber bullet. For for people who been shot with rubber, bullets and stuff, so we got him ice it, which was helping the swelling and I was like dude. Why the fuck do you have your we'd. Pipe in the middle, he's like. Oh, my bad. He's like a kid, and I'm like also offer nothing like a switch bleed. Put that Shit on the fucking glove compartment. Like what are you brand new like Christ? So? We moved to the car, I kind of leave him alone, because more shits popping off. But I just want to tell you guys. One little funds store. You guys might enjoy these fine. Ask dudes come from the right so not from where the standoff is, but from the other side like Hella fine I was like. Hey, boys, how you doing hi. Would you like some liquor or some water? Like you know like my whole like? Meanwhile, there's literally smoke people running bloody fucking. I just some. Yeah, anyway. If you guys want like come swing around this way later, Rachel, you fucking idiot I was like. Don't worry about okay. Have a great day. I was like by the way you're walking into a fucking police standoff with twenty five police officers Oh, and now they've lit the trash on fire so now we have a dumpster far, but like i. just wish you guys could have imagined like me. Just stopping being like Oh. Yes, hello, while literal fuck! Chaos is surrounding me. So anyway, so they go, and this is kind of what would happen in front of your wife. Nonetheless well, she knows I'm not GONNA do shit. Anyway so like come on, so she also, she was dealing with the dude that was like fucking whatever he was doing on the ground I was like I can't even fuck with that kid like. It's fine I'm gonNA keep him moving? Anyway. So then what would happen though is like people would come down the block, and it was interesting to watch people wanting to go towards the action, but here I am being like high. Totally understand what you're trying to do here, but shit has gone off the fucking rails. Until you're not joining a protest. You're joining like what is now turned into an not peaceful riot. No one wants to listen to Liz totally fine. Then they'd come back crying. Tear Gaza Goof Phuc Mike Listen to Liz donor. DUDES! Your handles listen to Liz. Funny Story that we should talk about on the show one time so. It's like involves swingers like I don't know it's. Put a put up not for this. Motion Times, yes, yes, so anyway, so then those finance dudes come back and they were friends. I, guess with Kendrick from insecure. WHO's one of the main guys? Doing The black lives matter rally in the he had been shot I'm you guys imagine seeing someone on the street and be like? Hi Nice to meet you like I'm ovulating next week. Like let me know what you think about it and ten minutes later he comes back with a Welt the size of a softball right a centimeter from his is a guide. Guide, on shot in the face with a rubber bullet Oh my God, so then I sit him down and I'm like. Let me take care of you. Put Ice on him. We start talking. We all were like what is happening. Is this calming down and they're like? No, they're releasing tear gas from helicopters. We had about nine helicopters like kind of circling our neighborhood. Anyway time went on. I'm going to tell you guys two more quick stories about my experience, and then we can leave it at that, so they leave the because they had a jug of milk, there were like yeah. We got put milk on. People tear gas and on like where the fuck did you buy milk? Nobody has fucking milk from cows in Los Angeles. It's like ham nut coconut. pecan like Fuck Outta here. I was like I got a grip of thirty dollars. In my house and we are I'm to throw that all over your love and watch. You find fine. Fine men bathe in the fucking. But I don't know like nobody's got milk, so they leave. They were great I was like. Please take my phone number then. there. Are these two little little lesbians across from our from our house that were sitting terrified quietly for about three hours. My neighbor Maria had gone over to them. These poor little lenses had driven in hours in for the rally, and their car was parked literally next to like in the middle of the standoff. Toy so I went in and got them some food. Now we're talking. It's like six thirty. We get an alert on our phone that the curfews at eight o'clock and I'm like all right when it's safe. By the way I'm telling you guys is worth three hours deep into this, so I was like, and then at one point I was like damn. I got flipflops on. I gotta go in the House and put on some regular shoes i. feel vulnerable as Fuck Right now. So. I told them to sit gave them some bars. We came down and then the IT started to clear out which was great, but like everything was drama up the street, like whatever August to that in a second 'cause. Whatever okay so? Then I was like we've got to get you guys who car like they don't even live here. They WANNA get the fuck out of yours. So then another girl comes up. And the and the lesbian couple one was was the black girl, and the other girl was Asian. So, they're like we're not fucking with the cops, and this is what I'm telling. You guys because this is when I realized after and kind of during this is what white privileges and this is how you can use it in a positive way. I was like Areeta, Filo, my fucking ass. I've dealt with the cops probably more than everyone on this block. Straight up. JUST REMIND EVERYBODY WHY OH! I was in a relationship with. A black man for several years and my house was raided I pulled over almost every week in San Francisco with him I've I've experienced in a lot of around a lot of COPS, but I've also seen how cops some times okay and treat people of Color. Okay, so. Also had my hair lake st pulled by the cops I was like bitch. That is not a we've you need to show so I? That was in a horrible circumstance about fifteen years ago so I've seen it all I've also literally known the most incredible and loving law enforcement I in on the planet. So guess what you can. For both everyone should know there is space for both okay. Yes, so we walk up and I again, so remember we. You just talked about this guy. You know he pulled. The rubber bullet gun on us, but like that didn't faze me like I know what you were saying. That could leave this horrible taste in my mouth, but I was like no, we gotta get these girls to safety, so I walked out, and I didn't realize so on the corner of my house. There's a synagogue and there was a sniper. On the top of the roof and Rachel, she's very soft spoken, so she tried to kind of get his attention. Here's where like a loud mouth. lizzy comes in I might listen the new. Here's what I did I was calm. I put my hands up. Nobody was around me. And I said excuse me officer I'm asking for your help. I turned around and he couldn't have been lovelier minds you, everyone I am talking to a fucking sniper on a roof and these women behind me have a car and you can see it if you look on the other side of the roof. They just WANNA leave. They do not live in Los Angeles. County and they want to get to safety. And he was like okay. GimMe a beep. He kinda disappeared, and then these guys next to me were like fuck. The cops and I was like Yo Bro. Keep that buck. The cops shit somewhere else because things are finally calming down, but right healer. What I haven't seen is the destruction on the fucking block yet. Like the post office destroyed like all the like. So now I'm realizing that a ton of fucking looting has happened and our looking at like seven, Fifteen, seven, thirty at night, starting to get dark, starting to get dark, so these girls, so there's looting already daylight, God yeah, and then I found out because two of my friends had their stores actually know how I had kept joking with. With you that I would take you to my jeweler in La. Historic yeah, targeted unfortunately and robbed at gunpoint at okay. Let's I want to hear that in detail so anyway, so so basically I ended up the cop on the roof kind of disappears, and then I just the girls I turn around and they go. No, no, no, don't worry about it. We'll stay here all night. I was like no. You're not gonNA, stay here all night, and then another girl WHO's Persian 'cause? We talk for a little while she was like. Will you please go and talk to the police officers for US and again? This is what I'm saying. This is like how white people can be alley. Allies like I realize that until I talked to people afterward, it was just. Just like okay, this is what I need to do. Put my hands up walked up slowly. Can these these women get their cars? And I said yes, one at a time, and then we escorted them. They got in their cars, and they fuck and scuttled on out of there I don't remember any of their names, but I don't know if they're Taylor trucker listeners, but hey, ladies, Hey! Port so anyway. Then it was a mass. The curfew was coming. We went onto the roof. I grabbed bottle of wine because Duh. Duh I looked to my right in the whole. fucking neighborhood was engulfed in flames, flames flames. The whole neighborhood. So okay, so I want I want to ask you specifically about this. And you know you have personal friends who have their own? I'm sure horror horror stories I want to hear those, but you said on your instagram story and I thought the question and I. Think I saw you address somebody else like you're like. Oh, I'll get into it, but you said that the looting without a doubt in your opinion was like basically I think the term you used was organized crime so when I hear that I think so when I hear that I think because I'm a huge sopranos. Fans I I think the Italian mafia because that's where my head goes, but that's what you're talking about. Then I think gang activity. Then I think okay. Maybe there's. Like some sort of a hybrid of the two, maybe maybe it's everybody maybe throwing throwing all the other mafia i. don't Fuck in what what what does that mean when you say organized crime? If I repeated this already apologized, but I was I've done interviews all day, so I am sorry if I said this already, but at one point on the street. After those super fuck and find dudes went on their merry way. I saw guy he looked literally into my soul. He was a white guy with tattoos on his face. I was like you know when like death, or like danger walks by you and you can feel the energy, yeah? It was like a White Walker. I was like Oh my God, and then I looked, and he had a baseball bat and a fucking hammer in his back pocket. And so what I want to talk about and I will talk about organized crime. Is Again I wanNA talk about this. This duality of having space for everything and actually one of your listeners called me out when I. Talked about my friends store being targeted. I actually understand why people would want to go rob the living shit out of Gucci I. Don't understand why you would then go to Alexander. McQueen, who the fuck wants anything Alexander McQueen. I was like damn couldn't get into the Gucci. Store, and you're like here. I am I'm like well. You WanNA shoot with skulls all over like what a fucking waste of course! I of course I condemn like you can't break in, but I was like Chanel. Kidding me. They went into the Rove when they started saying they were in Nordstrom Nordstroms. And then they're like. During the Charlotte Tilbury store on my Charlotte Darling show, and then they went into Searle a tab and I was like Yo, I need some Lakers say. What's good? No, but what I understand. One of your listeners wrote me and it's totally true. It's like tied to systemic. Racism would lead to lack of property ownership, etc, I I really understand it I literally am allowed to have space and Rachel and I really talked about this. I'm allowed to have space and understand the looting of large corporations in stores. I am also allow to have space to be fucking devastated for my friends that are about to go broke from covid who have small businesses in my fucking neighborhood that are not destroyed now targeted and I am saying targeted because I watched the fucking footage. When you say targeted targeted because. They knew they were taking advantage I talked about will opportune when you, but when you say targeted. Are you saying like all your friends gay are your phone. My friends have a beautiful antique jewelry store. Okay so targeted because they have expensive inventory exactly they were targeted for expensive inventory, and I saw on foot on the security footage. These four guys waiting in a car you can see them sitting out in front of the store waiting waiting and this was at five o'clock. And this is five blocks from four o'clock five bucks. When did they finally hit? When it got dark out five o'clock in broad daylight cheeses, so and my poor friend who owns stop store across the street film. The whole thing was like terrified and locked herself inside or store. I mean it was it was crazy. No, they went in. They had guns. They put it on the Valet. Luckily, my luckily my friends weren't there. Because I'm sure if they were, there would have been the opportunity. Put a gun to Larry's head fucking. Sorry, question when you say Valet Oh. He was like the Valet guy like in the building and this poor guy who actually friends with like by the way I should say like these the store. It's like where I got my engagement ring. We're very very like they were at my wedding. Like these are like Oh, yeah? Valet was their wife Novas there, but he was just there. It's not that they usually have security twenty like i. was GonNa Take What is the is? cura-cures because they the because everything's been shut down. Also, there were bars all the windows. They busted the door so hard. They broke all the bars. And they stole a ton of Shit. Luckily, every a lot of stuff is secure and jewelry places. Where like you could be would never like fireproof rooms. It's like the shit you wash on like Ocean's eleven or whatever the fuck movie is so oceans eight hour. No, I've never seen any of those movies. Sorry Eleven's a good one there are there's a lot of. You Watch them okay fine. Their airplane movies so. Okay, which will ever ever again? I will never go on an airplane. When I'm when I'm saying about the organization thing, so we went on the roof. It Star game real scary because you could see, melrose just on fire can I was like. Can I ask another question sure? When you say like so people you know because the same thing happened in New York City and so just a couple nights ago. A night ago. you know. Are they targeting these businesses? Do you think that there's GonNa? Be? We're GONNA start seeing them targeting like. In residences I'm listen I'm not like I don't know. They said that some homes were starting to happen. Which is thousand say how terrifying. How did it feel to you like? I was fucking terrified. We're all like sitting there, trying to process it by the way we're trying to process that. We were just around a thousand fucking people during Cova. Right, so like the layers right I'm like holy Shit I'm like yes, we all had masks on and gloves, but I'm like. ooh. I wiped many people's faces today guess yet I was just like hey, how you doing from across the street I was hold touching touching. Yeah, so anyway, so my neighbor was like I. Dunno, they looked like pretty healthy. I was like Oh. My God okay kidding because we're all like literally having panic attacks source, we decide to go in the house. I chug two glasses of red wine and pass the fuck out because I'm like, but then I didn't sleep because the helicopters were crazy. And you could hear everything breaking, and you could just hear it all night long. Now question. was there still a police presence there and did that actually make you feel safe to have to make you feel danger? Danger, Yeah Great Wall so there were no police in our neighborhood. At that point. They brought in the National Guard the next day and I was like Hallelujah. Hello, please I'm like should I start making chocolate Anna Bradley. We're in the fucking the quarantine still and giving it to these folks. Thank you, God for coming, because the National Guard Lake. It's different like their tanks. Tanks like they don't give fuck like That's not political again. It's not political. It's like safety's rows like hell. Yeah, please be here. Don't leave. Please only please only. They ended up leaving yesterday going to Santa Monica because they've fucked the shit out of Santa Monica so now. What's happening is they're moving from white neighborhood to white neighborhood, but to finish the night. When I talk about the organized crime thing what I saw, and what I talked about on my instagram story is I personally saw cars, really nice cars like racing through our street and they would like. Pull over to the side. And like talk to each other, meet up, and then like go in another direction, and then my neighbor's saw, two cars that were driving around with no lights on, and they were like moving sh like boxes and boxes from one car to the next so like and then you so what I think ended up happening. Was that listen? You can't blanket statement. Everything we I think there is this mix of like anarchists and opportunists. Opportunists in organized crime and criminals from other areas like my I get boxes stolen out in front of my house every day. You don't think those people are like folk, yeah, the police are busy I'm about to go buck wild. Of course they were. You know what I mean. We've seen this before. We see this win. The Red Sox win whatever I don't even know. What kind of sports red sox are whatever they are. I'm just getting like you know what I mean like. You know like these Jackal heads, fucking sports teams. They go crazy. They lewd they go nuts or something with like you know the adrenaline, the anger the ALKA. If there's alcohol involved, yeah so. What I've been seeing on socialist like. People of white people starting some shit and then other people just kind of like taking the opportunity to. Also Lewd. which fucked, so you're saying so when you also just something you said that what's happening now in La. Is that people? are going to different white affluent sections of, but you also said that you had one of the scariest encounters with a white guy with the hammer and a bat. So this is just to be clear. This is not only black people who are deaf. I just wanted I, just wanted to be clear I just wanted to Arafat. Again I'm not trying to sound like a broken record, but I really want everyone to listen to me. No, no say it over and over again because this is the issue. Is that like if somebody's half listening and they don't hear something, or they misinterpret something. That's when the narrative is like. You know it goes from black lives matter to like black people are criminalising and terrifying us, and that's not. That's not what nominee and I'm not here to glorify fucking weird. We if you listen to what I'm telling you I wasn't even going to go I was going to go to any of this, but you know. The waves of the day was like super peaceful, super amazing than I felt guilt for being like whack, and not wanting to go, and then she opt- off, and then here I am fucking. Jane Seymour Dr Quinn Medicine Woman like all God damned on which by the way I'm like the worst medicine woman because I've never even seen that show and I've never even seen grazing that I'm little. Where did you get all these skills from? How did you even know what a he? I was a nanny for like ten years. Okay I. Don't know also the wealth of like ridiculous facts that don't make any sense. You know this by now. anyways, so you know what I really WanNa talk about, and is this idea? Of like there is no blanket statement. There is no like. EVERY COP is bad. There is no every person is dangerous. There is no every every bob bought like. We have to stop talking and tunnel vision, and start opening up our minds, and our hearts, and thinking about things a little bit more holistically and I would encourage you guys to do that in a in a variety. I encourage people who like to eat meat to think about vegetables in a different way. I don't need right now is the dumbest thing I've ever known I don't want I. I know what you mean so for those of you who don't know if you don't know, listen. I are both in same sex relationships. Liz identifies as bisexual I identified as Taylor Sexual, which is the greatest thing I've ever said and we'll continue to say. But really like I I also coined the term label is Love, which is the most UBER GATT is? Looking. I don't look. I wish you guys could see me on facetime. Looking at her like I'm I'm I need to fix my shut up to shut up I'm allowed to mount one. Because those dudes if you're listening. Taylor fans. Names are, but loses married to a woman I'm like basically engaged to my girlfriend Taylor, but the thing is is that you know? It's like I. Think because we are a part of a minority group. We live and know that like it's easy for everyone. Want to want to lump together, but we're also different, and we know that to be sure. I think they were both really good advocates for for our community for the LGBTQ plus community, but like that's the thing. Is that you know? We all now need to be advocates four ready. Basically. I don't know. The night was terrible. We woke up the next day. We went into the neighborhood. It was a fucking mass I went to my friend's store that I was telling you about. We watched the. Footage. And you know what he did. You want to know what everybody you know what my friend did. Who had his bucking store with guns? People came in and rob the shit out of him. He today is his fifteenth anniversary for the store. He asked everyone to donate to fucking black lives. Matter because this is the point. His store was looted and robbed, but it. It doesn't take away from the larger issue, which is black lives matter and that's the kind of mother fucker he is, and that's why I love that Dude, and that is my more. I keep talking about this idea of holding both in your heart. Being angry for your friends whose businesses were destroyed, but understanding that if there is an unrest and there isn't. It's gotten to this point for a reason. And and It's just gotTa Stop Man. It's just not it's. It's horrible you know, and so that is why this is happening, but it's it's scary shizue. and. It's not an it's an. It's terrifying and I hope that. I hope this brings I. Hope What have you know? I was trying to think about the positives. And the only positive I can think of is kind of what I mentioned earlier is how much closer I am to my neighbors. And I know that's a small and personal those. That's what I'm talking about. Like. What? What are the positives? The positives are that you and I are having this episode as opposed to like Oh my God i. You know like Celebrities Lithgow Yeah. We're all going to talk about celebrities and talk shit about celebrities, and that's like what makes the world go round which is? But. How about these moments were do we take pause and talk about something a little bit bigger and we don't feel like bad about it. We just we just talk from our hearts. You know I think that's what's important, but this should have so whack, and while we've been talking. I'm actually hearing. I think another protest is forming two blocks from my house. And I. AM stressed the fuck out. Okay well. I know so real quick. I know you've been doing interviews all day long. So you know you so I'm Ryan. SEACREST got your on Ryan seacrest today. How did that happen? This is like Solas. Kelly I know his producer Jensen Sola has she was at ABC for a little while when I was writing at ABC. And she saw my video and she's out of the pictures and she hit me up last night was like. Will you talk to Ryan seacrest at six forty in the morning thousand? Don't even with me. I did morning radio for fucking eleven plus years. Okay I was getting up I. Call It ski time that like sucking early as shit. Four thirty for like a couple years straight. Fun stuff anyway. Anyway I told you when we resume out of the Cova. I'll wake up whatever time you want me to. I have to on the show privileged to be on your show so anyway. I woke up early. I was so stressed. I was like Oh my God and then. I was like it wasn't was fine. I made him laugh good. So this is what I said. Though because you'll like this. Because you and I you. You were helping me yesterday with this, so he's like. Oh, Liz Lynne on the call and I was like what up Ryan seacrest I'm dead. Any pause or no, we would say was like Good Morning Ryan. SEACREST and he liked pause and he's like. A Liz. I don't know your last night I was like my last name is Liz Collie? So Ma'am to you. I'm just getting Name is Liz Kelly, and then he was like okay. He lives coli, but what was interesting is kept trying to guide what I was saying. He's extols peaceful and I'm like. Yeah, it was until it wasn't Ryan seacrest. Yes, Dodge of. Don't don't go lead the witness Ryan I know he was, but then it was fine and then I told him I would buy him. An OATMEAL quarte. Way. But what how'd you make him laugh? O! O Because I. Say Oh. I was telling you about Rupaul drag? We did you guys? I just kept to my story like we are because it's the truth. Peaceful. We Watch rupaul drag race. He's like don't He goes like no spoilers. I was like well. You're late to the Game Ryan because this happened many days ago. Internet and then. And, then he asked me about like. Cleaning People's faces and I did my little milk joke, which I clearly just did again? Yes, yes, and then the New York, times, a buddy of mine so crazy, I know. It's crazy well. You know what I have to be honest with you, so I can I, said no to both of it I to New York Times and Ryan seacrest because I was laying. I'm not trying to be out here like some white girl capitalizing on this Shimono, but then it was a storage. Tell US wall, and it was interesting because the woman who was seven months pregnant, who came to take my photo socially distance for the New York Times, today was a black woman, and she was like I'm so happy that you're doing this because people need to see like Chubby, Olsen, twin looking mother fuckers. BROKE ASS! Reese Witherspoon like terrible Halloween. Costume chicks you. Because they need to understand that like it's not just like nutty crunchy like yes, white people. It's like all kinds of white people. It's all kinds of brown people. It's all kinds of. Asian people it's all kinds of everybody right that was involved, and so she was seven months pregnant I was like Oh. My God girl, but she was so sweet so again. It wasn't I'm not here like glorify or really give my opinion i. just gave the events of what happened. It's crazy that this ship popped off on our block. Because we have the that's what I'm saying. Why is? It. Back on my block, who my God! These poor dudes, and they were trying to steal their benches and Shit and oh. Malone but let's say like you are such. You really are such a treasure, and you are new I'm serious and like you are a storyteller, a gifted at that. It's what I really think the universe you're like a magnet to all of this craziness, because you have a voice in a platform especially now to share it with the world, and I feel like you do such a good job of like. Like delivering things fairly and impartially, honestly and entertainingly, and you know sometimes you need to be a little unchain to keep people's fucking attention during stuff that they don't want to listen to well, if I'm honest as you don't put in my pizzazz like the amount of crying I I just. I don't think I'll be able to do it if I didn't throw in a couple of bounds of course. Because it's not stopping I also just wanted, but like I don't know when this is going to end, and so that is concerning to me. And the good news is that I don't really have an appetite, so maybe I can shed some of these Kovin LB's in the building. Girl all I do is eat subs I don't even WanNa talk about it. While Liz I am GonNa let you go, but I love you so much and thank you for bringing being brave, and for being honest, and for even in these dark times making us laugh about fucking have milk and hot boys, even though you're married to a woman. That you know, remember on. Hold on is going to end with this. Remember like on craigslist, Lake, casual encounters or like the people that you wish again. I would just like to say what the fuck is up to those dudes you. Holler and me if you want. You can Holler at listen to Liz. Yeah, great segue on Instagram Liz also I. Just want to tell your listeners that I love them, too. They love you. They really do and you know what. It was on chicken Florida. It was rough in the beginning, but Liz like you. You are polarizing because you have an opinion and you speak your mind, but you are very good person, and so maybe in the beginning people like all his bid for their big ass mouse, they all sorts of crazy things, but you know what we all know. I always knew, but I everyone knows that you have a huge amazing heart behind all of it and so. Is With you girl that I. Try try so famous. Shots the faulk off. Again, thank you so much to Liz Liz, colleagues her name follow her on Instagram at listen to Liz shot. On a podcast, it's called Seraing isn't a thing you can follow them on. S. A. T. podcast and her co host is also another one of my radio show co host Darren Carp so check it out. Okay so right now I just want to address all the stuff. That's been going on this week. You may be have seen it on my social media. If you listen to my radio, you definitely heard me talk about it for those of you who don't know. I recently made a mistake. That has pissed off. A lot of people and a lot of people have been telling me that actually because of that mistake, they actually don't even want me to be an ally which completely breaks my heart, and at first when I saw the comments I felt offensive, and then I was I went through a range of emotions, and I was pissed that I was confused. Then I felt guilty. I felt shame. I felt bad. And I been really grappling over how I'm going to dress and what I'm going to say and like literally out of the blue of really good friend of mine, reached out to me on my DM's. And he graciously explained to me why what I posted was so problematic for so many people and I really wanNA share what he said to me with you, because he opened my eyes, and I learned a lot from our conversation and I think that it's important to share with everybody 'cause, maybe you. You could benefit from a to I, posted a comment on my friend. Stacy's recent instagram statement, regarding everything that's resurfaced from her past, and so when she issued a statement, my knee jerk reaction was to go and comment on it to let my friend note that you know I am here for her I wrote. I have made mistakes to my baby. Apologizing and promising to do better is what the future needs right now and I did like the prayer hand Emoji in the night that you hard Emoji. So, my intention in doing that post was to show my friend. That I was here for her and here to help her. Listen and learn and do better because that's what I've been committing to doing. But what I actually did was a stupid fucking Karen thing to do it was and I didn't even see it because of my white privilege there. It is rearing its ugly head again. And I do want to say while I. AM committed to doing better and growing. My eyes are very recently opened an I'm not proud of that. I'm ashamed of that. I'm trying to learn and grow and have the uncomfortable conversations, but in doing so I guess I am continuing to make mistakes. That are probably a direct byproduct of my white privilege, and I am so sorry and I can't promise that I won't make mistakes or stumble here and there, but I promise to keep doing the work and to keep listening and learning and doing better, so yeah, so this is an example of on my path to be better and do better. I made a mistake, but I'm fortunate enough to have a friend his name. Name Zenon and he reached out to me to explain why comment was problematic and I really want to share this with you. I asked him if I could, he said yes, so he sent me a screen shot of that comment that I just read to you. And he said to me as someone who cares about you, and knows your heart and intentions I would be more than willing to share with you why this? This comment is upsetting to folks, and I said yes. Please explain it to me because I'm getting so much feedback. Negative feedback and I know that. I struck a nerve with this comment that I posted, but I don't truly understand why, so. He said back to me I'm so glad that you're open to getting feedback. It's a huge part of being an ally to any marginalized community, and so I said my stupid is. Is are finally open and I'm devoted to being ally and being a part of the change, so please tell me so. This is what he said he said so there is historical layer context to understanding why this comment struck such a nerve historically often, but not always well-meaning why people have used their access privilege etc to speak for black people, instead of using their privileged create opportunities for black people to speak for themselves. Effectively this suppressed black people's voice in society in centered white people's needs as having the answers, so he said understandably black folks often feel that when white folks get involved in black liberation civil movements white. Folks once again. Send their perspectives needs invoice, etc. This is what continues to say. So connecting this to your comment, it came across that you feel like you have the place aurthority to speak on behalf of what the black community needs right now. And then he put in quotations like apologizing and promising to do better, which is like what I wrote, he said while yes, undoubtedly apologizing and promising to do better along with actually in all caps doing better using your access to open doors for black people challenging your family friends colleagues, listening to black folks investing in black. Black communities showing up etcetera, it's not your place right now to say what is needed in the moment and I'm like a thousand fucking percent right? And then he said to me does make sense, and I'm white cuff faulk. Yes, this is making sense like it's crazy. How something can be so confusing? It's hard to understand, and then it can be so clearly explained. It's like I'm so blind to something and then Oh yeah, that makes complete sense, and then I'm thinking of all the. Net angry comments. I got and I'm like no fucking wonder, and then he so graciously finishes this up by saying. I hope you know that this comes from a place of caring and we. He's speaking as a black person. Need everyone regardless of when you show up to the party to create transformational change. You're going to stumble. Say The wrong thing. Do the wrong thing, but what matters is that? You keep showing up trying listening to black folks? He said racism is an uncomfortable conversation, but from that on comfortability comes growth. So I just WANNA. Say Thank you design and I've been talking to him. After this conversation of course and I'm hoping to have him on Taylor struck her show. Just to speak more because he is just, he takes something that's very. It is very confusing, and it's you know have been happening over. Centuries and he's able to put it in Layman's terms, which is very important because there's. Just, it's we can. We want to be allies as white people, but we really can't ever fully understand and Xenon is helping me in this moment to understand what I did wrong, and you know after that I do want to say to people I did comment on my friends post because I was just trying to show her. I'm here and I'm going to help you do. Do Better and I'm promising to do better to. And in retrospect, that's something I probably just should've texted her and not post on social media because when I posted on social media. What did is I? Told people of Color Black people specifically I'm speaking for you. I'm setting the tone of this movement. I have all the answers and I get now why people were so pissed. And some people have asked me to delete my comment and I don't want to because I think that everybody who had something to say to me deserves to say that to me and I feel like delaying. The comment is like somehow running away from needed to be put my place so I do apologize for accepting an apology. That isn't mine to accept. I am not a person of color I. Am Not Black and I am learning. That, these are the times when I should just shut the fuck up and listen. And Learn and somebody who talks for a living. It's very hard to shut the fuck up some trying to find a balance between doing my job being an advocate and shutting this faulk up. So anyway I hope that a lot of people who saw what I commented. Get to hear this and I hope that maybe other white privilege people like me here this and think about what my friends, and said to me moving forward when it comes to conversations with people of color when it comes to activity and commenting and liking things on social media. Just you know, be aware that we can be a part of the movement, but we're not the ones that are making the rules in setting the tone it's it's not our job is not our right It's time to amplified. MELA needed. Voices peered at story in so I see now. I promise promise to continue to do better and to be an advocate for change, and to not stop doing the work, and even if you're not ready for me to be an ally. I'm going to be here and I'm going to be doing the work. Thank you so much for listening to this podcast. You can follow me on Instagram at Taylor. Striker and please feel free to reach out to me on. To have all the conversations. It's not your job to teach me, but if there's something that you want to educate me on, I'm here to listen and learn. Thank you guys so much We'll be back next week with another. Until then by girl by.

Thank God we just have an unreasonable unending amount of interest in vitriol over nothing burgers and I say everyone because when something real comes around. We're not gonNA. Have much left in the tank. Just when the next time we unearth some video that aired on national TV from twenty years ago about a comedian. Could we please just keep walking meaning? There is real racism. We can find it. We don't need to just do it on a weekly basis if you could take to loans off. Manufacturing factor it. Well. Or look for where it doesn't really exist. You know what I mean pain day a racist face on it. Yeah I mean the oldest drunk can have a week where he doesn't end up in Andy. Taylor's clink right like maybe he strings together a good week. Give him that week. Change it up. That's what I'm saying all right so mark is going to join us. Gina's going to join us. Not sure they're both going to hop on a second I was. Writing many many notes down I was thinking. Somebody tweeted me. I was thinking about where I was in nineteen ninety two. When the last big riots hit l a topic of conversation amongst Christner family because they grew up here, and you do yeah, and her dad had a heart has a tool store down bulb, von caller sitting. Yeah, in sort of. Fair to Midland looting zone back in ninety two. Oh, yeah, and. As far should've should've asked her about I'll call center text as far as looting goes. A tool store a high in tool store versus I turn on the news, and there were looting, a subway sandwich shop and I was like first off. How low does your self esteem have to be to loot a subway? Secondly, the sandwiches aren't even made. You walk out of there with like three Mr Pips and hair net on. On Your Sandwich artists, you're asking yourself. How Much Mayo you want on your foot long. AKSYONOVA Kado Sir. What is the best? You could do? Looting a subway. Even the ingredients are like pre portioned. Get out with a sole fain worth of smoked Turkey. Yeah, it's insane, but yes, a tool a high end tool store now that's that's good looting right there, so it was end of April. I looked it up. It said end of April early May. So must have just started at the end of April Poland into May, but I was living in Santa Monica in a rent controlled apartment. That oh there's mark era gus okay hey mark. MARK IS GONNA wind is connecting punch-up his his zoom and we'll take it. Take it from there. Let's see is mark frozen. Or is he not moving mark? Can you hear me? I can hear you which is good. Yes. How are you my brother? I'm very good. How about you? I'm doing well? Considering all that's going on, so no more timely. Guests Mark Eras. If it got Colin Kaepernick and all that that's going on with the NFL and we got Your Business Town in downtown. You know what else we got. We got me suing insurance companies and I was laughing juicy last night. The all of the people looting the shoe store in Melrose right I'm thinking that store owner is the happiest guy on earth because he's got. He didn't get business interruption insurance for Kobe. But boy! He's got business interruption insurance first entire inventory. He's got two months worth of inventory the when flying out the door, right, it is so I mean it's comical, but for that guy. It's a blessing because he's not getting anything from the insurance companies long as the city is shut down, but soon as somebody bust. The glass steals all the NIKES. He's going to be reimbursed for that. It's going to get reimbursed for that what? It couldn't happen to nicer industry in the insurance industry. So. They've been fighting fighting tooth and nail. Claims so let's start with your Client Colin. Kaepernick I. What was the news that came out over the weekend from the? NFL Executive. Joe Lockhart. Who was there? Pr Guru, for about two years came out, wrote an OP. Ed piece that. Basically kind of Ripped off the scab or the band from the SCAB, that is the NFL and set. That yeah, in fact. The owners had said it was bad for business. There's a lot I would like to comment about that. Let me just tell you even though he now admits that they were wrong. You know thanks a lot. A lot of what he said is just. Demonstrably false view and I know from what I've told you in real time much of what he said. I was talking about in real time Cynical doubt with you and tell you about what the owners were saying. Things like that without violating the protective work. But clearly joe. Lockhart says that they were the. They knew they had an issue. They knew that the owners didn't want to sign him. They knew he could play they everybody. There was one owner in particular who knew we could play wanted to sign him, but they were just lex because they didn't want to attic constituency, which apparently they believe was not going to wouldn't be good for business. What you know as I've articulated you before the Nike ad in the Nike sales in the what happened, there had to slide all of that. Have, you speak. Have you spoken Kapernick this weekend? Yeah, we talked texted. You know we always were in constant communication boring. COP is on with him on a daily basis, so you know we. We Talk! We've got other things going on. I mean obviously he he He arranged to pay for the legal defense in Minnesota for people who were arrested the know your rights foundation did which was. A great thing and the part of the thing that he's done I think, is he? Highlighted was early money for years ago to what these issues are. What do you think of the legal case? In Minnesota puts your. Defense attorney hat on say you're defending the COP who had his knee. On that man's knack for for that period of time and also let's speculate a little bit I was thinking about this sort of psycho dynamic of that guy that that? That cop, I should say. Derek Shelvin isn't He. He I kept thinking to myself. Why was this guy's knee on this guy's neck? For this carrying of Todd? People's you out of? But how speculate a little bit? Even though I've lost most of the question. Yeah! I was GONNA. Say Part of what the defense will probably be is at least as been reported. The autopsy shows that a fixation or strangulation was not the concept. So the argument is going to be that. There was a break in what's called the causal wake. And that is. They're going to talk about that. They're gonNA. Talk about what was on the tape. They're going to talk about what happened before. There's a standard playbook that the people who defend the lawyers who defend cops go through, and it's a small Coterie or cadre of defense lawyers. Who Do this kind of work and. I will tell you having sat through the criminal trial. Daniels shaver in Arizona and watching that cop who basically executed Daniel in the hotel hallway. Be acquitted. My take on this cop. Is He's a bad dude because I could see. In his eyes, he just looked like a bad dude, but I kept thinking. Why is his knee on the neck of this guy that's handcuffed for such a prolonged period of time. The guy's not posing a danger. What is he doing and I? Realized the more people shouted at him to let this guy go. He can't breathe. What are you doing? The longer he did? Oh I plan to the crowd I think you know how certain people and certain cops if you say. All know those coffee you go? If you try to tell them their business, you go. It's like Mr Walter. E coach He'd look at me and he'd go tend to merit points, donkey and I'd go Mr Walters and he'd go twenty, and I'd go but Mr Walls thirty. You want to go for fifty like. Every time somebody with a phone and a camera and a young person yelled at him. He can't breathe. Get off him I think. He stayed because he was defying them. He was saying tell me what to do. That's interesting why L. is what? He spent his standard period of time there. 'cause there's there's you know his wife. Let any grass grow under her feet in filing for divorce from this guy. I mean I I've never seen a divorce. Happen quicker. I mean she she had. That lawyer was on speed dial and they have divorced on five waiting for an excuse mark right? She was away she. deason I took one look at that. If you take a look as you said I'm going to speculate your, you take a look at the pictures. There I've got a pretty good idea of what that marriage was all about what the dynamic was in the that she was looking for any excuse. This guy has obviously got issues. you know the interesting thing to me? Was I saw an interview with the woman who owns or runs the nightclub. Were both of them apparently are security guards. Night and Adam as you and I have discussed them in Bryan actually one time a year ago I think we discussed. There's a special kind of person that wants to be or access security guard. And in this hot, moonlighting as a security guard and having issues, you know with with part of the Clientele there tells you. I think speaks volumes in the fact that the whites just literally ran him over immediately volumes well when I was about was about to say after Adam said you know the the the Mr Walters of the world. Come back at them, and they come back harder. Those people tend to find themselves in a position of authority, whether it's pe teacher or cop or security guard, and you know what I mean like. You can't come back to a bouncer like we can't accept this idea, but you're not getting it now. Don't say, but don't you know? Don't come back at them. Like, the it's, it's basically like the highway patrol mentality. I mean who was to be a California Highway Patrol. I know that there used to be the TV series, but they're really on me. Law Enforcement Totem Pole is really kind of the way mark. What's your speculation on the other three officers? That were there. I just I can't imagine they didn't do. Ah, can't imagine them. Not Doing I was down. Sound like every news anchor on the planet, but what I'm saying is at a certain point. Point you're watching people film you. You're watching a middle aged white guy with his knee on the neck of a black man. It's a lynching. It's a horizontal lynching that's going on. You're being filmed. At what point does the any of the other three obser- go like I think he's had enough. Let's get him in the car. Like what what is that? And how reliable are they were the thing that's infuriating about all of this and what people who are out there protesting understanding to Woodley? An icy every single day if these were four civilians. And they were doing the exact same thing number one also would have been arrested and charged with murder. Fifteen minutes there wouldn't have been any we wouldn't. Eight anything no DA would come out and say you know they've got a defense bullshit then would have been arrested. It would have been million dollar bails. Maybe two million dollar bails and also would have been charged with murder. I had that case. I defended civilians who were standing in parking. Lots outside of nightclubs in Hollywood where there's a one punch thrown, somebody falls down. It's their head on the sidewalk dies. All four guys get arrested. The the absolutely infuriating about this. Civilians generally don't have an affirmative duty. You don't have a relationship with somebody. Near presence is as the jury instruction says is enough here. The COPS have a duty. They've got a duty to the public. That's what's I. Don't even understand what the what they're waiting for. If a rat cops munch drug globally as arrest, now ask questions later, and in this case you know every single one of these DA press conferences are infuriate well, if found out that there was underlying conditions and that the COP did not. Is that why they went for murder three instead of murder one. Could've been, but. In civil law where you're just fighting about money and not about. There's something called the eight shell theory. Just because somebody's got an underlying condition doesn't give you a free pass to just kill them, I. Thank God. That one. Yeah. Well. Right Shell. Theory is no I. Mean you know the the bigger the argument that they're going to focus on is they're going to say look. The quarter looked at it. The corners dispassionate, which would which by the way is nonsense. And the coroner said that the cause of death was the underlying conditions or something else. There isn't anybody who can look at that tape and is GonNa say that that's a solid argument. Except if you are giving if you walk into a risen agenda and say you know I think that the cops never be convicted. How much what would you go for? For the other three cops like we discussed in the Daniel Shaver case the guy who squeezed the trigger an. An executed that poor guy who your client who now represent the family who was begging I live on the floor of that hotel. It was the other cop that kept yelling. I'M GONNA, kill you. It was the commanding officer that guy seemed more culpable than the guy who actually goes squeeze the trigger, and in this case in a weird way, the other three guys at some point pushing the sky off or saying that's enough or getting them into the car. There every almost every bit as guilty to me. I think it's the same thing if it were a if it were a civilian or four civilians, as I say, they would have an aiding and abetting theory being the prosecutors. There wouldn't be any sedation and they would tell you that's fine. Those are all affirmative defenses. This idea we're GONNA win. Best gated while the cops are out there while the city is burning is nonsense and people know that everybody knows somebody who has been arrested I in questions asked later, and that's why this is infuriating. There's a double standard, and that's why people are burning. And by the way, You know the the idea that you're going to get so infuriated about property crimes, and not about crimes against people is also infuriating and that's. I you I know that everybody wants to say Oh my God. You should peacefully us. You should do this. You should do that. I get I mean I sometimes as I told you before I, have the urge to take an Uzi into the into the criminal courts building. Try and break client out when they're getting a wrote a role by the system. The system is irretrievably broken. There's a symbiotic relationship and it's not a good one between prosecutors and the cops and prosecutors are deathly afraid to do anything that is going to get the cops upset at them. A the the people really run the criminal justice system or the police unions the. One thing I do want to touch on C. I believe. People think this is a black white thing. It's more a bad cop citizen thing you're representing. One, Hispanic Guy I think in two white fellas that were essentially executed by the cops as well that we don't know about. Because, CNN doesn't report it because it doesn't fit their narrative, but tells about those three cases real I've got I've got cases in the eighth nights. Intense circuit right now, I've got it. What was an? Go to Salt Lake. City Tribune Dot com look up on Taylor. Take a look at that video. There's more than a million. I just argue back case in the tenth circuit last month. They dismiss that at trial while fight immunity ninth circuit Daniel Shaver they're trying to take that on that. Very opt to the US Supreme Court as we speak eight circuit last year. A kid who had A. A gun who is head seventeen year old, who was trying to commit suicide is threatening to commit suicide. They told him to drop the gun as he started to drop the gun, they executed him. All three of those cases are in fury. I've got Walter. Daily owned. WHO's a Hispanic Gentleman? The LA ATV claimed that Yetagun yet a towel tower and was out walking a shots absence blue. Faceoff so I, we got these cases all over the country. And, I tend to agree I. Don't think this is solely race I. think that this is a the militarization of our cops. Take that in you. Combined with the forfeitures where we had seized all kinds of assets, and then we put military commitment on the streets. Then you take the fact that we take all of these post traumatic stress syndrome victim of victims from the Iraq and Afghanistan war, and put them in police departments and have them patrolling the streets without adequate training, and then you've got meant a mental health crisis. Who put all that together? N- can't help it APP. Tragedy after tragedy happens not just when we hear about it, but on a weekly basis that your client are the family that you represent Dylan Taylor who was just shot August Eleventh outside of convenience store in Salt Lake City. That is a straight up execution. The Guy was walking away. He had ear buds in the COP was yelling at him to turn around. PUT HIS HANDS UP. He just turned around. Cop just wasted him like total. Cop from the time that cop jumped out of the Corey car. You're at the believe me. Go watching. What's the video? The Body Cam from the time he jumped out of the car to the time that Jack was dead at most was twenty seconds, and the kid was unarmed by the way one of the things that's infuriating about that. The top knew what was going on. Because he walked over saw, the ear buds took the air, but Off. Through ways not a body, Cam. And then said he never noticed ear buds in his in his report. What happened to that? and. I think they just like the cop in Arkansas who who I believe now gotten is now a state trooper I think this cop is also been promoted and the COP and Daniel Shaver they hired him back after he was acquitted of murder for one day gave him a full disability and he retired the next day. These things are infuriating all of these. They get away with this because there's this doctrine in the. The law called qualified immunity. It's completely made up doctrine judicially doctrine where they give cops basically immunity on on these kinds of shootings setting. If you can just come up with a scenario with wherein a reasonable COP would've done the same thing, we're not gonNA. Hold you by the US Supreme Court actually. When this airs, Tomorrow's contemplating taking up the doctrine of qualified immunity and they should. They should get rid of it, it's. Created it should be judicially repealed. Yeah, the thing I'm broken. Record on and I. Know Mark. You gotTA. Hop and I appreciate it is the news only reports white cops shooting black citizens. There's so many reports of white cop shooting, white guys or black COP shooting, white guys, and they all get off is equally is agree. Gis as is the Daniel shaver thing is straight out execution. The Dylan Taylor thing is a straight up execution. We have the footage of it. No no indictments everyone right so everyone thinks it's like you shoot a black man. You'RE A cop. You have impunity you walk. Yes, that's true. Shoot a white guy, same same result. That's what I'm saying. My only beef is with CNN just reported all. That's all I'm saying mark. I know you gotTa Hop. Thanks for joining us. Last minute. Thank you my brother, you gotta Bye Bye bye, bye buddy reasonable doubt I'm giving plug reasonable doubt Saturday on apple, podcasts and podcasts that one as well see. I don't the Daniels shaver thing I can't watch anymore. It's it's it's. Really rather not it sickens me the Dylan Taylor thing. You don't have to watch it. It's a twenty year old guy. While the sun is Shining, walking away from a cop who jumps out of his car, just shoots him and kills him in a parking lot like if it were if deal in Taylor was black. The whole town would be on fire because you'd go. Oh my God. It's a straight up execution, and maybe not salt lake. City and it is a straight up execution with COPS. Kind of routinely do and all I'm saying is if you turn into a theme where it's open season on black people, you are going to get the city caught on fire. The theme should be. The cops are militarized. They're over. There they're brutal and they need to be reined in. That's a mike any better thing like every issue it's. Much more nuanced than the stuff that people can grab onto. Of course, racism is probably an. And a lot of these, but it's also like mark was saying there's so many other elements. Yeah, the PTSD thing I didn't even think about. For veterans, but makes perfect sense is a nuance problem and. Tartu see an end to afford well. It'd be nice if it was just reported equally for its reported equalied havoc, a contacts, and then you realize that cops did not declare war on black people. COPS declared war on everyone but other cops. Eugenie grab is now. Back at a little problem with their computer. Max Pat what. Third case where the guy had a gun to his head that I was telling you about off the air three times and we kept not wanting to find it. Three times full gear goes kind of brushed over it, but. Guy called the. COPS. Mom Mom called the cops and said my son has a gun. He's GonNa commit suicide out in the woods. And the COPS showed up and they found the kid with the gun to his head out out in the woods. Do we know that guy's name Max Better? No we know we couldn't get out. Yeah, okay. A seventeen year old kid, or whatever knees hold a gun to his head, you heard mark say, and the cops got his gun drawn, and he's yelling. Put The gun down and the guy goes. Okay. Guy Goes to put the gun down. snuffs it. Because like yes, he had a gun in his hand. Yes, it was moving, but you're yelling. put down. What how else could this following orders right? Right Gina Grad is in the flesh of the see him right there. Picks up pick fuck. Yeah, so the genus computer didn't work, so she drove to the studio, indeed commitment. And I got here in. I think from when I told Chris I was leaving to sitting in this chair with seven and a half minutes. I like a bat out of Hell. This is this is the time to speak like you said of nine eleven at the time. This is another good day to drive. Yes. Yes, but? I did get an alert as I'm sure everybody did that. There's a curfew starting at six o'clock, so if anyone would like to escort me home for when I get pulled over, that would be nice. Oh, did they lower it? Now it's six PM to popped up on her phone thirty tomorrow five. No, it's at five hundred. Sixty six things. Are. They gotta find. Modified it all right well. They know what they're doing people, so you should listen to them. Let's take a quick call from Mike WHO's Oh, I'm sorry from Joe. WHO's was it? The Seattle demonstration in that went Joe's Seattle forty one. Hey Hey Adam Gina Bald. Uh, good to talk to you guys again all right? It's kind of. Somber circumstances that it was a yeah, it was really weird night lot, yes, last night and the night before we actually have another curfew going on like an ends. We have this conversation. It just went into effect at five PM though for. Seattle and people here this I the news. We'll be out about anything to happen tonight, but nobody really knows what's going to happen. I mean so many storefronts last night were just. Smashed in and car parked police guards that were sent on like not even joking in the downtown commercial district. There is nothing less than brick. Their windows left to street level smashing. Take anything so. Nobody really knows what's going to happen tonight. What was your sense? Is Your there where you spotting the professionals that were in the crown? Crisis Actors? No I mean I know what? The. Looters like people. I don't know and in a way. It's sort of like. You go to a pool hall and there's a bunch of truckers and construction workers, drinking pitchers of beer, and they're playing snooker, but at one point hustler will come in, but he'll appear to be a trucker. Drinking pitchers of beer about we make an interesting ten bucks a ball. That's what was entering I guess a lot of these protests and I don't know if you spotted any of those guys. I mean by the end of it. I mean there's there's the officially organized event which on for a couple of hours and then when it went down and. This is something I think that people don't distinguish doing enough. 'cause like you have like the people segment where people come out with their families and try signs, and then usually take over, but after that I mean I think he's still needed this English between hard course there will be disobedience people, and he's the looters like if you are kneeling in the street, and they're not dispersing when the cops either the and yet they're firing. Tear out in your willingly taking that I. Mean that's that I think that's all. That's all legitimate. That is making a point, but then when people talk about. Oh. You know when it turned into a riot. Together that with people who are breaking windows and going into stores and stealing stuff, and yet I did see people vote on Friday night and Saturday night that were Brezina source and doing stuff, but then like I saw once actually the old navy, and then you go over the verizon store. It's like wait. This is the same four or five people. They just they they'll maybe, and then they ran over here and generally not from a neighborhood. They're destroying. Right yeah I mean I. Don't know I. Don't know if they were local to Seattle, but I mean the whole thing about Oh. Did they drive there from somewhere else or did they live? If it's like not even one tenth of one percent of the people that are at the and I mean it is? It is unfortunate that that's what gets all the reporting and people don't realize that can make an entire city streets look like a bombed-out war zone. You really only need. Four or five people walking down the street, taking up rats, throwing them through windows, and then people say the next day, and they say Oh, you know this bob of of who against the this, but it's. It's really just a handful of people, and if they don't get arrested, that's what the success that that's a really good point Joe because I actually brought something into read. Read to you guys now condensed way down, but somebody posted this on facebook and went completely viral, and just to echo your point I think it's so interesting and important. Somebody wrote. There are three different groups on the streets of American cities, today and tonight one demonstrators against recent grave injustices to instigators who use this scenario as an opportunity to create racially charged riots three. WHO also use the scenario as an opportunity to commit theft, these are three different groups. Please don't lump them all together. They're very different people with very different agendas at. One hundred cities across the country the I agree. Hey Thanks for thanks for checking in and stay safe over there in Seattle my friend. Hope the city doesn't get. Completely destroyed again tonight. I mean the thing about Friday. Night Lights. It was mostly like three or four white guys that referring stuff through the windows and breaking things, and it's not a joke I felt so embarrassed for the white idiots that were breaking actually went back later that night with a broom and sweep the broken glass. Very good people on both sides. Yeah. I felt like oh a even then. I felt kind of silly. To my capital and Nice Guy Persona actually came out swept after a riot. But turned out in Seattle everybody was out in the street sweeping up this morning from last night so. Very, comment, it's a lot. Thank show you know look. There's some billion more good people than bad people, but as weight as Joe established, four guys can make the whole street looked like a combat zone in about ten minutes. That's that's the problem. We have a reporter online floor. WHO's out on the ground in Santa Monica? Pierce from La, Daily News. Can you hear me? Pierce. Hello, yes. Hi Pierce thanks for checking in with us. What's going on in Santa Monica now? People so people need to understand. Let me explain the lay of the land for La Downtown L., A. Watts riots, these areas these are far cry way from the suburbs Santa Monica and In the San Fernando Valley Melrose, Melrose and places like that in the past, folks would essentially burn their own neighborhoods to the ground, but they blowing up a bunch of ninety nine cents stores, and check cashing places and stuff, and then at some point, I think somebody figured out. If we'RE GONNA, burn stuff to the ground. Why burn our own either to the ground? Why not burn someone else's shift to the ground zero down and they mobilized. So! Sorry, here's. What's what's going on in. Santa Monica Right now. Yeah, so yeah I'm in Santa. Monica right now I'm on fourth. Street and Santa Monica. There's heavy police favorites. Right here where it looks like they're trying to guard a place that. It looks like a buildings on fire, but we're not totally sure what. What's which one it is right now. and they're providing. They're preventing progress getting in. Preventing getting. In but Very loud right now and I. I'm not sure. I can hear you too well, but four the protests and started around earlier this morning. I I've been here since noon where protests were pretty calm since then we've had some looting and. more. more. Yeah. Hold on a second so I'll just speak because I know. There's alarms and stuff going off their fourth and Santa. Monica's where the promenade is right like woven. Already broken into places on their. That's right. We're right around where we're doing our comedy. The comedian to them Kroll show were doing comedy sets a few few months back if I, if I recall, I used to live out there on fourteenth say as I said when the first rights were hitting. So you know it's an interesting thing which is. All this stuff was sort of like inner city. Chicago shootings. Black on black gang bangers. What's Whitey care about that? We care about school shootings. That's what we care about. We don't care about the crips and the bloods, and whatever, but and as far as looting and rioting and burning went. It was pretty much well down Watts and south central. You know there's a Korean guy who owns a green grocer. Let him worry about it. But as this stuff spreads out into these gentrified areas in Santa Monica, the areas were talking about the average cost of a single family home as five point, two million bucks in that area, and as they travel through Fairfax and as they travel through Beverly Hills at some point. Rich White. He's GonNa have some concerns. Yes if I know rich winding, we have concerns and the other thing that I certainly thought of you because he's been wall-to-wall nonstop over at Kfi last four days of an reporting at night. Of course, things really heat up at the second hour. Show starts in the sun goes down and you know there's there's a protesting you know like I said one hundred cities across the country, and when when you get those boots on the ground camera angles auto diversity in the crowd Oh. My God age race, everything I was talking to drew about it earlier today. When did the white chicks get so pissed off? I mean on the load for bad looking at twenty three year, old white checks at the fuck in front of the line. Yeah, and when this ship was going down now it's not like we get to check in with the demographics of the protesters and the looters and everything like that. Once a year we took twenty some odd years off I mean we've taken twenty eight years off between between what's going on nineteen, ninety two was the last one. When I was I, was here for hundred ninety two, I looked at the news I saw a lot of brothers. Allot a couple of sisters in there. It was dudes. It was dudes of color, and that was pretty much the demographic. Progress crush yeah. They're tons of just super pissed off. Chicks are just at the front of that line and their young yeah. Yes allies it has. It has changed at advocates, chairman of is still on the line or not, but I'm less than five miles away from where he is on on the promenade. The entire time doing the show. Helicopters arrived back and forth around my house. I'm not that far away from the ten freer, I probably one hundred and fifty yards away sirens. Razov my window. Yeah, it's on hopefully the national, guards. In place. All right. Let's take a quick break. We'll come back. We'll hit more this right after this. I'm your emotional support. Animal navigating are all woke. No joke culture in today's society, a victim, overcoming racism, and being brave and fearless are currency written and narrated by Adam Corolla in the seventies. It was let your freak flag fly. In the two thousand and twenties. It's let your week flag fly. pre-order it now at Adam. COROLLA DOT COM. Well. Let's see so much going on in real time over here. What a time time we're living! So Genus in studio. Brian's got helicopters overhead. Here my now I Sorry Mike. popped back I'm here. SCHECKTER check. Out here. Clare that's their. That's right all right Mike's in Lincoln. Nebraska going on in Lincoln Nebraska. Mike. Hey there yeah, it's been. It's been kinda crazy. I mean this is a you know. Certainly a small city like by every single means like there were like rocks thrown like most of the Capitol building like Windows Doors like there was a fire set to I. Can Insurance Company I think like last night? kind of like an odd move I guess, but yeah like a whole bunch of Kinda Shit it's. All fucked up and like other buddy who who opened a bar, actually like two weeks ago and with the virus in you know all that kind of stuff. He was at like twenty five or fifty percent capacity. He's had the windows blown out so I know. fucking sucks obsolete by the timing is crazy. Right when literally on the cusp of getting back to business and. Before I know all the businesses blown out? Mike and the interesting thing is you know there's always one of these stories reported? We'll does not always there happens to be one you see all these people and and I heard this. anecdotally I did not fact. Check it I. Did hear that because I think we were. We were talking about on the other show. That George Floyd's girlfriend not only obviously did she lose her boyfriend in this horrific way. Her business got looted and. Around, but there's this man. Have you heard about? That restaurant in Minneapolis this it's called. Gandhi Mahal, it's an. Indian restaurant I saw running. Well, he's been getting a lot of press. Because Rahul something I can't find his name looking it up. He's he said. Let my building burn I stand with these people I. Get their eight. And of course, people came out in droves to support him and support the restaurant and get everything back together. So you do hear these exceptions do hear these voices saying I stand with you and you know as usual jujitsu on ksfo. I'll try. I woke. I got up. This morning I saw the kitchen. She's wearing a shirt, said black, owned and I. I! I. Don't know what's infer from that, but I was thinking suspicious. You should definitely need. It might be cuckolded. What's going on? I was so I've been talking a lot about the of a breakdown of the rule of law, and we're seeing it on on both ends. We're seeing the law broken down. And we're seeing the breakdown of the rule of law on the other side of the badge as well and I was watching. MSNBC this morning and I was watching Alex, wet who's. The blonde haired Gal. Who Does the weekend shows over there? And she was talking about this. These police cruisers in
