"What's going on guys. It is wednesday june ninth. And what you just heard open. The show was the sound of kareem. Lukhele the brother of the president of el salvador as well as his campaign manager narrating the passage of the bill by which el salvador became the first nation in the world to recognize bitcoin as legal tender. It was part of a larger hour-long discussion last night with the president himself. That happened holy spontaneously. A nick carter space on twitter. Setup to casualty chat while he cooked himself pork chops for dinner. This conversation happened late at night. And i only caught it by the grace of a fast flickering power outage in our house which caused every appliance to beep in. Wake me up me being a complete degenerate. I did a quick pass on twitter before heading back to sleep in. The first tweet. I saw was from one minute earlier from nick saying president of el salvador in my twitter spaces right now before we get into what he said. Let's go back to what happened over the previous twenty four hours. Beginning of the day was a cascade of politicians from central and south america. Giving themselves laser is we covered that on yesterday's show by the evening. Though the big news was the full text of el salvador's bitcoin legal tender bill had dropped and at the risk of this running a little long. I'm actually going to read the full english translation. It's actually pretty short. And i think is important to give you the full context for our discussion. Considering that in accordance with article one or two of the constitution of the republic the state is under the obligation to promote and protect private enterprise generating the necessary conditions to increase national wealth for the benefit of the greatest number of inhabitants that under legislative degree number two a one published in official gazette number two forty one volume three forty nine dated december. Twenty second two thousand united states dollar was adopted as legal tender said. Approximately seventy percent of the population does not have access to traditional financial services that it is the obligation of the state to facilitate the financial inclusion of its citizens in order to better guarantee their rights that in order to promote the economic growth of the nation it is necessary to authorize the circulation of a digital currency whose value answers exclusively to free-market criteria in order to increase national wealth for the benefit of the greatest number of inhabitants. That according to the previous considerations it is essential to issue the basic rules that will regulate the legal course of bitcoin
El Salvador to Become the First Bitcoin Country
"What's going on guys. It is monday. June seventh and man. This is the type of episode that is like skipping rocks across the pond. There is so much to dig into that. I feel like. I'm barely going to scratch the surface today but i wanna relatively complete starting point for anyone who wants to understand. This news coming out of el salvador. Now before i get into a big caveat is that my knowledge of el salvador stopped started with the civil war in the. Us has role in it until about three days ago. I'm learning in real time. Just like you guys. And i don't wanna present any hint of overconfidence particularly with regard to domestic politics in el salvador. But with that out of the way. Let's talk about this. Bitcoin twenty twenty one in miami was already dominating the twitter spear before saturday multiple hashtags related to the event. Were trending around the us. The crypto twitter tribes were showing off their tribalism in glorious fashion. The people in miami meanwhile seem to be having just an absolute hell of time. But on saturday morning tweets started coming out from the official event account as well as from influencers that one of the biggest announcements in bitcoin. History was coming later that day. That was a pretty big claim. So of course there was some amount of immediate skepticism. Could whatever the news was meat that lofty bar set by the marketing around four thirty. Pm eastern time strikes. Jack mahler's ascended the stage to make an announcement now for background. Mahler's had recently spent time at el salvador's bitcoin beach project alongside others like square cryptos miles suitor and had already contributed to some interesting initiatives there for anyone paying attention that was clearly some ground up momentum around bitcoin and lightning in el salvador mahler's announcement however would catapult the country into a totally new status in the bitcoin. As you heard at the beginning of this show el salvador's president. Naib kelly was submitting a bill to recognize bitcoin as legal tender. They would be the first country to do so with significant implications and while the bill would still have to be reviewed by the country's legislative assembly bouquets waiver party new ideas had recently won a significant majority in the unicameral body so passage was nearly assured

"To passage to profit once again, Richard and Elizabeth Gearhart, and now we are onto another presenter, David Katz, with his company. He is saving the oceans through socks. I can't wait to hear about welcome, David told Awesome. No thanks for having me. Yeah, my wife and I started this company Swagger. Socks are made out of recycled plastic bottles are business is all about sustainability, Ocean conservation, helping the planet. But on top of that, we've just got some fantastic performance socks. They're breathable. They've got Help the environment and pretty awesome. Yeah, Price wise. How do they compare to socks made out of cotton or polyester? Their premium sock. You know, there are luxury sock, and there are other companies ahead of us that luckily have sort of educated the consumers on the benefits of having a premium sock and what it can do for you. So you know, you've got your bargain 10 pack socks that you can get for very cheap in various retailers. But then you've got premium socks like ours and others that are a little bit more expensive, but you get what you pay for, and in terms of premium socks, I actually think a little bit lower than the rest, So it's a pretty awesome position to be in. Well, I'm really glad you're doing this because I always do wonder where all those plastic bottles like. We'll drink water out of plastic bottles and will recycle them, like do they really go somewhere, so it's good to know they do. I'm just wondering how you get the plastic. It's pretty awesome process. So all of our socks were made in the US there All source all the artists source from the U. S made in the U. S. All of our bottles are also recycled from in the US, So we work our manufacturers in North Carolina. We work with the company, also North Carolina who works with recycling centers all along the East Coast, and we get the bottles from them. They get the bottles from their cyclers break them down into yarn. We get the yarn. You make the socks and it's a pretty cool process. So how many bottles Does it take to make a sock a minimum of three bottles going to each pair that we make? We've got our ankle socks. Three bottles in each pair or crew socks have four bottles in each pair, and we just came up with these awesome over the need cable knit women's socks that have 10 bottles in each pair. And so the feedback we get from customers the way we've been scaling. It's been pretty exciting. So, Wally All you need. Now is the Wally Green Collection of sorry. You know what, man? I was actually I wrote that down earlier. When you were talking. I wrote down you I wrote down Matlin. I think there's a ton of collaborating we can all do, I would have never guessed in a million years. That you could get socks from plastic people don't typically associate plastic with being something comfortable, something breathable. What we've done, which is pretty awesome is that you know, we've also started in Houston We've since from to Florida, but we did a lot of local farmers markets also to get our brand awareness out there, And I think the thing that blew everyone's mind initially was plastic to socks. They're the most breathable socks. You put on your feet. They've got extra cushion on the bottom like athlete performance. You don't get those Sisters, and then from a non slippage part. We've got awesome construction in the hell that allows yourself not to actually slip on your heel. So you're not getting holes where you shouldn't be getting holes And on top of it. We're helping the environment. So now, Alan, what do you think This is amazing. I absolutely love socks. So I'm sending you some thank you. It's like the fact they're sustainable and she warrior we have the same Thing. And with boxing. I have had some of the worst socks ever. The blisters flip it, So I'm definitely going to be trying out those socks. I'm so excited. Awesome. I love to hear that I can imagine. I mean boxing on your feet constantly, like grinding moving like I mean, you need your feet to, uh, to stay a state feeling good Kenya. What do you think? I love the name. It's like one of my favorite terms to use Swagger. Right? So where did the inspiration from the name come from? Right At the beginning. We knew that The environment was going to be huge component to our business. And so we We started doing research into how we can incorporate like that environmental aspect and we knew that the bottles is what we wanted to do. And so We thought we need a marine animal to be the face of our organization. We came across Sea lion, which is, you know in our logo, and they walk with swagger. They have them away with them. And we thought, Wow, what a perfect way. What a perfect way to incorporate the ocean that swagger that factor into our socks. And so honestly, that's It's not super profound, but that's kind of how it came to be. So it's swagger. But without the East Swagger without the Yeah, So do they come in? All in men's women's. Do you have kids? Like Who? Who's are these four? So actually, I'm super glad you asked that. So it's another really awesome thing about our socks and believe it or not, it's true. So we've designed them. Specifically, we do have really we have kids socks, But our main sock fits a kid size to shoe all the way through men's size 16 and truly does quick, you know, socks come in. 6 to 9 or 9 to 12 10 to 13 and often times you know that one. I'm sure boxing. You know the heels in the wrong spot or Bunches of the toe. And so it's not comfortable and there's no reason this has to be that way. It's just how they're manufactured. And so we just You know, we go a little above and beyond, in terms of how we're producing, and that was really our main function is we wanted it to fit right in the heel, sort of form to your foot feel like that pillow and so All of our socks. They're men's and women's because we've got the colors, But we've got one size 10 size to shoe all the way through men's size 16, and they truly do fit they truly do.

And he said This was his first test of our socks as you bottom a few months ago, True test and he said he warmed through the bike, the swim and he said, You know the fact that they didn't Soak with water because they're so breathable they want is for two here, but while he was running, they kept his foot comfortable. And there was no rubbing in the socks that cause blisters. And he sent us an email specifically and stuff like that. That really keeps you going and gets you pumped up about seeing what's next. So how are you marketing these, David? Because this is the first I've heard of them, But I want 10 pairs already. Yeah. So we you know, we we've got our with social media on on Instagram. We did a lot. We started a lot of local farmers markets kind of, or Organically getting the brand out, which was great because it allowed us to really establish that loyal customer base. And now we're just starting to create some retailer relationships were on Dick's sporting goods website. We just got our first peel from another larger retailer. We just started our brand ambassador program, literally. We just got our first two and brand ambassadors, so we're looking for more as well in that regard. You consider going on Q V C.

"passage" Discussed on Riot Podcast
"Wisdom literature Problems right apocalyptic literature more knowing what kind of passage we're dealing with often helps in our interpretation of that passage related to this or questions of interpreting the bible literally or figuratively. So when you guys study when you're studying for a message or just in your bible studies how do you know. Why don't you give our our listeners. Kind of a heads up on how you dive into some of the stuff to make it make sense using the context. We just talked about i. I usually take the mosaic approach Moses went up on a mountain and guy gave him some tablets and any wrote on those tablets and he brought it down to man. So that's that's kind of an approach. How about you know you know i. I know me me. And bob talked about this beforehand. But since i'm talking i this is It is a a communion of prayer with god to get my heart in line with his. He knows the people he knows the circumstances of the people more than i do and and it is his church it is his people and i am his servant and so i go to him as my father and i say lord show me what it is your desire and and i i do a lot of series and i like doing that for the whole series and in kind of getting the big broad pitcher and then each week you know taking bits and pieces of it and honing it down to make it a process of teaching truth but you know I really seek him. I in this process and ask him what he wants. And then i take it from a perspective of what am i learning. And what am i seeing in. What what is god saying to me. I share with the people. And so whenever i preach in whenever bring a teaching a most of the time. It's it's what. God has corrected me or god has shown in may god has given to me and teaching me and allow that to outflow and share with the people but Some of the things that are very very important is to to know who this who is righty. Who was bitten written to. What are the time of the righty. Who's what's the what's going on culturally during that then and then Wh who is the recipients right and and what is the culture of what's what's taking place and then how. How does this relate to all of scripture and how does all scripture relate to this you know so it's you don't just take one passage in one text out in just preach on that without considering the rest of the bible god is consistent and and he doesn't contrast himself he's very consistent and there's major themes throughout the whole bible. And how does this re re relate to those major themes. And i asked god personally..
God's Gracious Deliverance (Psalm 80:19)
"So i'm chapter eighty verse nineteen restore us o lord. God of hosts. Let your face shine that. We may be saved now. This verse is repeated. Multiple times in psalm chapter eighty for three says restore us. Oh god let your face shine that we may be saved for seven restore us. Oh god of hosts let your face shine that we may be saved verse fourteen. Not the exact same language very similar. Turn again god host look down from heaven and see and then what i read at the beginning the last verse in the song restore us. Oh lord god of hosts let your face shine that we may be saved and in that repetition obviously whenever we are reading through scripture and we see a phrase or a word reverse even like we see here repeated multiple times. Were getting a pretty clear clue from the holy spirit as to the theme of the chapter of what god is saying in his word at this point and the takeaway that we need in our lives from it and the whole picture here and som- chapter eighty is a picture of our need for god's face to shine upon us just think about that imagery in this psalm for the face of god to shine upon us. What does that mean. Well obviously based on the context of this passage the fact that it says let your face shine that we may be saved that we may be saved. Let your face shine that we may be saved. It's a picture of god's saving his people of god providing for his people

Steven Pressfield on Fighting & Winning our Inner War Against Resistance
"Stephen press failed on dose of leadership. Welcome the show my friend. Great to be richard. Thanks for having me. Yeah this is. This is a bucket list thing for me. I wanna talk to you for years. I'll just get this out of the way. I wanna thank you personally for. The war of art has been instrumental personally and professionally for me. It's been probably the source that is probably steered my path. More than anything was was that. So i wanna thank you for that book from four mcgrady. My my pleasure. I'm delighted that it helped. And when i even coach when i do some individual coaching. I don't do it that much anymore. But when i do i always have them read that before. We start the sessions because this this whole concept of resistance was so eye opening to me. I mean it was. It spoke to me because it was things. I was feeling inside. But i just couldn't articulate it and your book helped me articulated so great great great. Wow this new book man at arms great job i really. I really enjoyed it. Thank you thanks for reading. Yeah and what. I loved about it. I don't know what your intention was when you wrote it. But it's what. I talked a lot about here on dose of leadership. Was this this idea of love. And i think that's what this book is about. I think it's about love at the end of the day. Yes it is definitely a kind of a passage from from fear to love or from anger to love because everything a serves around that. When i came from the marine corps and it didn't come clear to me until i got out of the marine corps i got laid off from american airlines in two thousand one. I went straight to the marine corps to the airlines. And then i got laid off into the corporate arena. And that's when all the lessons. I took it for granted when i was in it. Because i'm around the same same much knuckleheads all the time and take granted but it was a very loving organization that a lot of your of your writings of course gates of fire was important to me too because it talks about that type of leadership that i was so used to write in. It's very loving organization. What do you think about when you hear me. Say that You know. I had never actually thought about it in those terms. Love using the word love for the marine corps.

I got to cut my teeth on kind. And i was so excited but also terrified when he was coming down the field. Because i was that person. In i like i could same trucking down the field at me and i'm thinking oh this is awesome and i'm thinking holy shit. No it's not no. it's not. this is gonna hurt. Fortunately bain through good foot maneuvers. And same thing that you're talking about. And i caught him and i got to be a hero guy. I was the guy i mean. Look they didn't set me up for big file or anything like that. So i didn't get the full fucking field experience where he comes. Trucking in it half a kilometer wide kind didn't stop showed no mercy to anybody and i've seen miles do that same sort of thing and good shepherd. Of course you know like some shepherd. People have given me stink. Oh as well saying hey forgetting their good ship who do sort of thing as well Man that was.

"They have to exceed expectations. They half to fulfil. The requirements of course, obviously, which are to try to work within around the originality and original ideas. So I think it's about really reaching for the highest possible. Outcome for the work whether that's scale whether it's a material whether it's pushing the idea further, and then she told me something surprising I show the piece that is your hair extension that leads into the perse that's part of your body. This kind of blew my mind this whole time I thought it was like the worst and turns out I've become one of those slide show examples. And I talk about some of your past experience growing up within a family of stylus and having had experience in my perception and I could be mistaken as being involved in the pageant world and walking proper and having all of the poise that that you were taught those things influence your work and I think it's nice for students to hear that inside story because it makes. It more approachable for them and it helps them put away self doubt and I think it also sets the bar really high because I'm going to pick what I believe. There's pieces are the epitome of the work possible in those assignments. So they can realistically no the expectation and the students what an asset that's right there on the screen. So maybe even if I didn't get a chance. To benefit from it. The things that I learned as an art student were paying off in other ways I had become a part of the Hamilton Canon somehow this feeling that I put into the world could be a seed of inspiration for someone else now, my work lived on to expand the criteria of good and meaningful art as goals for the things that students could find within themselves. Rebecca excitedly offers me toward the new building. So hot job anything Burns happens in here. It's hard to believe that it was once just a computer rendering on foam core. It was impressive. I don't even know. Inside the hallways are bright echoing and covered in art the floor to ceiling windows overlook a lush lawn and pond. This was quite the upgrade. It was now a multi-million dollar state of the art create a facility Charlie's chocolate factory for art nerds. Casting Room so we can cast all sorts of noxious thing the majority of our studios in the poorly ventilated basement of the Vanni Freshman Dorm Dunham. Getting stuff in our I or anything like that, and we don't worry about dust collection. Fabulous. We who's we want our house to be this maximum so Be. Excellent. College didn't put the money in it wasn't. Only did certain things. That's why you don't know what? It is in the other room. The old building was never meant to be an art building. That explains a lot and Dunham basement was at Mississippi. Are you? Know. But this is just the perfect space. It's increased the quality of the student work dramatically, I'M NOT GONNA lie a part of me is a little jealous I wonder what I could have made it in a place like this. There's a direct view across the street of the equally new art museum where the seniors debut their thesis projects and we'll be for many of them the first public exhibition of their careers. When rite of passage made its public gallery debut at our senior group, show the audience responses overwhelmingly I love it can I touch it? A jury of community members selected me and two other students for the department's Annual Prize for excellence in art split the money three ways and I took my seventeen hundred dollars and got on a train to New Mexico and what I thought about the time is a self imposed exile. And wanted to get as far away from the memory of Hamilton as possible and figure out who I was on my own terms despite the success of the show I was not awarded and honors our degree at the end of the year. Am I final critique some of my advisors citing the struggles that I had completing the work suggested that I look for a career in writing or fashion design after college. And while it made sense on some level I was also crushed. I fell back on other passionate writing and over time developed a career as a journalist and eventually became an audio producer. Maybe there are some people who only have one really good idea and then subtle into a safe and stable life filled with spreadsheets, and maybe I was destined to be one of them. Looking, around at all of the student art I wondered for multi-million dollar facility was enough of a bomb very soon, these students will be graduating to the real world where their ideas will be challenged in ways much harsher than the allegedly safe-space of college. Essays legimately because just at the beginning of May twenty, five miles away at Hamilton nearly identical rival school colgate university. The whole campus was put on lockdown because the black student was using a glue gun for an art project. Looking around at all of the student art I wondered if a multimillion dollar facility was enough of a bomb. Ken Success in art. Be taught. How does a young artist? Especially one with a complex context learn how to make art on their own terms was there a roadmap and just missed the exit if so it's time to double back and find out. On the next episode of Spark Failed Artists isn't quite the right word but I pull some advice out of my ass. Sleep, and stability the fly fly deer pants. The you really should not take advice from me. I'm meet the seniors looked so crazy like in the window. and find out what possessed them to make in the first place, and then like the election happened in a like. Okay. Now I have been to say plus it turns out I'm kind of a big deal of that piece of hair work. That is a fair actually wars. Yeah. Know what? My mind was just.

My mom always dream vacations, it was never something that we could afford but we will look wistfully at commercials for Disneyworld and she always promised me someday. She wound up in a hospital in Orlando instead of Disneyworld where she was trying to go one day during her lunch break, my first airplane would be to help her home for Christmas. I spent most of college sick things. -iety by the time I graduated, she was homeless to. My tape together life felt unfairly glamorous in contrast I remember that opus was kind of. A part of your safe haven it was like you came and chilled and just. Got Out of out of the rat race. You know hid from all of that especially since you. Now that you worked at night you. Just play your own music. Until. I got coffee. No I don't have coffee despite or maybe because of all the chaos art became a lifeline for me. At three myself into assignments, experimenting and Learning Taking Solace in the cold dingy concrete studios late at night. But over time art stopped being therapeutic and started becoming stress of its own. You know you're strong will person and I don't think that. I don't think the colleges easy for you. Think it was All of all of the adjustments. An urban. person. Not just, Philadelphia, bet any of the east coast cities to come here. So isolated. So with the artwork that most art students do here the struggle because there's not the energy that you find in a city that get stimulus from to. Create, art. You really digging with the same visual landscapes around here that get reused and reuse reuse. So you came up with some totally different than a lot of seniors come up with the he met with the idea that I would be some sort of hybrid artist critic and curator I fell in love with art in high school after becoming a volunteer docent at the Philadelphia Museum of art I quickly realized that my drive to make art was just as strong as my passion for art history. But I, went to a competitive magnet school with billy with no arts program. So I applied for scholarships to study painting at local colleges during the summers, and after school I was fascinated by color partly driven by the challenge of painting self portraits, just adding Brown tones to a traditional flesh Palette meet my radiant sheet of Raw Sienna in yellow ochre skin flat an ashy my skin absorb light and reflected highlights differently than the non Mela needed models that we studied. Unfortunately, skin color theory is not widely taught after all the great masters do not often paint subjects like me at least an positively formal challenges aside marginalized artists often bear and invisible burden. In Fine Arts everything is in conversation with the Western. Canada. The old white masters, for example, many as painting of Olympia with her servants minstrelsy Mahameed. So let still humiliates me it's a feeling that it's only underscored when you're the only person of color in a room full of white students, even audiences of its own timer scandalized. But for different reasons, Olympia disrupted the cannon confronting the audience with the UN virtuous bear figure prostitute nor climbing pose reminiscent of Titians Venus the servant existed to demonstrate the power of the white woman. She was shadow and. There's a lot of ways to read this painting because of my experience I can't not see that story. When I look at this work, flack bodies in white spaces are politicized by default. Even, the most innocent seen that I could paint myself in let's say carefree in a field can daisies under clear skies in a white dress? Subject to interpretation in relation to the narrative of slavery because I'm black and sexuality because I'm a woman. There is no freedom from the frame of otherness. Maybe perhaps you were stuck in your own head, that's mild sculpture, Professor Rebecca Murtaugh the next stop on the nostalgia tour trying to figure out how to. Give voice to or form to what was in your head and trying to plan it versus just allowing your hands to release it. This is amazing. You you like a part time therre. Tauzin. She mentored me through the senior year when I transitioned to sculpture for my thesis. I took my first class with her in the spring of my junior year and I was inspired to start working with we've in my art. Give you something. The chance to have life is about taking chances and taking risks and being willing to accept what it is. You make whether that be visual art or poetry or something performance. There's all these different ways that we get our internal maybe spiritual how do we get those things out and I think that it's different for every person? So when you see your students like Like struggling or kind of encountering these these new ways of thinking or ways of challenging themselves, like how how do you how do help them? How do you talk to them about what they're experiencing and and help give them perspective for what I teach in sculpture and ceramics is fear of failure is a fear that what they're gonNa make isn't going to be good enough or fear that. What their ideas are are more grandiose than what their hands can make, and so I think that by rewarding them on failure and pursuing those things that they don't know the ensure that dot realm of unsure. I think that that's one way. So the fear of failure is definitely how do I get them out of that I, reward them for. Trying something they don't know if it's GonNa work I remember. I was really afraid of failing and. You're really kind of weighing and balancing out like the odds of your future like if you want I mean soft out can be debilitating and if you can get over soft out. I think for a lot of students that is something that really holds them back to seniors have to do a lot of what somebody might label bad work in order to make good work. That's the way it is. So what does it take for a student to get an A. With you?.

Long before I had any idea what form it would take despite studying painting for all of college and part of High School. The work chose instead to reveal itself to meet through sculpture. I was fascinated about the things. Black women teach their daughters about survival on mother who was a model licensed hairdresser before I was born began relaxing hair when I was five years old and spent money she didn't have something to finishing school efforts. The CHIEKO would meet the world to see how beautiful polished and respectable I was it came from a place of love and her turbulent experiences a black woman her beauty had saved more than once a passage became an opportunity to express how I felt about the value beauty as I experienced it a tool for negotiating agency identity in power. The only problem was no one knew what the fuck I was talking about. I made rite of passage in two, thousand, ten at the dawn of the age of Whoa Kness. America had just become post racial in the fall of my junior year when President Obama was elected and Chris Rock's good hair had just come out natural hair youtube channels are still niche in black women were still running from the rain for us. The concealment of our true selves was questioned at Hamilton known really understood how a piece of we've could represent a mother's love or start friendships on students or being appeasement to white culture. I hated the process of translation. It made me feel like a walking explanatory comma. Point, it became hard to distinguish the feelings I wanted to share versus the pressure to fit specific narrative of black women artists in relation to the white cannon. Even the deeply influential artists that might advisers pointed me to Cara Walker Kerry me Weans and Kennedy Wiley are often conceptualize this way for mainstream audiences, and that's one of the biggest problems. When nobody tells you is that by audience, we mean white people.

Was the unfortunate condition of non white people that had nothing to do with white people says simply put I was a person of color in a workshop whose theory of reality did not include my most fundamental experiences. A person of color that in other words did not include me. As graduation approached I started to apply to Grad School for interdisciplinary art programs but by the time I emerged from my studio in late spring with my beautiful monster something in me was broken. All I knew was that I couldn't go back to where I came from. Nowhere to go and the only thing that gives me hope my passion to make art was now extinguished my life and the social context of it. All have become tangled with expression and he needed a pick-me-up. Sorry, I'm recording for podcasts but also coffee. Today have a twelve ounce strip. That'd be great thick. Sent. A real place at real money. Okay. Money didn't have much of that the. This let's technically unemployed or between contracts the minute.

"Here's Chiquita. Late winter and trudging through the icy puddles in snow. Globe of Hamilton College in upstate New York. Near, to speak on an alumni panel about what I did with my art degree. The short answer is I stopped making art. I haven't been able to do that since I graduated seven years ago. In fact, the last real piece of artwork and maybe only real proof that I ever even tried to be an artist still lives here. And it haunts me. I'm tricky to pass the spark a show about the creative process and daring attempts to create masterpieces. Tam Going back to the beginning and end of my dream to come artist to find out why the spark of inspiration isn't always enough. Now, the pressures of identity can make it even harder to find your own voice. On its thirteen hundred acres of woodland campus, there are two sides to Hamilton the light side and the dark side students use the Leibels to differentiate between old all boys school that was chartered here in eighteen twelve styled as many harvard and the rebellious modernist concrete cube of Kirkland College. The experimental sister school that sprang up in the apple orchard across the road in the late sixties and eventually merged with Hamilton like many Olympic. For me and weirded out by all the ways, things differ from my memory of it amid the old colonial and classical style buildings including the iconic three storey chapel that stands like a beacon above college. Hill road lots of new sleep buildings have gone up an old haunts have been torn down renovated beyond recognition but walking across campus from the light side to the dark side the biggest change I noticed immediately is the people. Everyone is lake extra friendly people make eye contact and smile as they hold open doors and the all different. Thumb, my eyes were deceiving me but a quick Google confirms at Hamilton is nearly twice as diverse as it wasn't matriculated over a decade ago. I. Remember how much brownfields stood out against the completely white snow-filled campus when I was there at that time during two, thousand, six, two, thousand, seven, academic year only twelve and a half percent of students were considered diverse and only five percent of that. That's twenty five people out of a freshman class of five hundred were black like me back then diversity was more than just an optics problem. Hamilton could have very well been the fictional winchester university from the Netflix show dear. White people. Winchester. University. Only two months into the semester and already the Ninth Ivy League squads buzz with Future Olympians in presidents with innovators trying to crack the next facebook. With diverse students being forced into group shots for the admissions brochure. Slavery, in America. Anybody like volunteer to lead the discussion as one of the few black faces in this mostly white place anyone sam had become used episodes like this and I was the Sam White of Hamilton College. I even had a radio show with two friends called the minority report spoiler alert. The report was not good just like Winchester Hamilton suffered from silent racial tensions. I would occasionally bubble over in the form of hate crime vandalism or big Ho themed parties. A lot of Hamilton's privilege stems from its considerable endowment supported by legacy families and a very loyal and generous network. But not everyone's experience resonated with happy smiling faces and the annual funds donation campaign. As for me, the only major gift I've donated so far was a wall of we've literally, it's a massive wall sculpture made entirely out of fake hair. It's called right of passage, the fabric of our lives. It was last Arthur made for public showing for the completion of my thesis and it's the first stop on my personal nostalgia tour. While I've been living my post college life right of passage developed a life of its own now cafe AU mild stopping grounds where I used to work behind the counter for most of my time Hamilton This was like a time capsule the smell of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, and slightly burnt coffee wafted over me like a wave of comfort fabric was strewn from the ceiling like a Hippie boudoir none of the wingback chairs matched and soak the cushions were popping springs and permanently flattened I looked over to a red chair in the corner I spent a lot of time parked there with my book spread on the table watching snowfall over the Glenn chugging Magnum opuses the house drink a triple espresso with coffee. I stayed busy here working at opus weekly radio show was however laxed. I soothe pain of perpetual interpersonal rejections by exploring my creative interest. Revived creative non-fiction Zine the green apple I was the art director for the Literary magazine Sat on the College Media Board Played Upright Bass and Orchestra and I took jazz rock and Electric Bass lessons for fun all of which help keep my mind off of the fact that I was secretly homeless. My grandma sold the House we lived in with my mom as soon as I got my acceptance letter and we split each fending for herself. No one had the space or money to support me while I was in college. So I worked two jobs freshman year and couch surfed or state on campus during breaks. I. No. Longer had a room anywhere. I had no real address and it would be years before I would have a door of my own to close when I wasn't at school. At Hamilton I was an extroverted lunar truly on my own. I wonder over to the back corner and opus across from the Red Chair tucked in the corner I. See something that kind of looks like a goth suffocated emerging from the wall but up close it's complexities become clear. This is right of passage. I'M NOT GONNA lie. It seemed better days. It's tattered and it looks lot crappier than I remembered it's hanging on a wall above an old beige couch bear some dreadlocks dangling precariously and some of the chickenwire has detached from the panel Masonite that holds the whole thing together when I I imagine rite of passage, it felt like something. Of A sci fi film where the walls come alive a gurgling memory portal morphine color and texture like Hungary textile chameleon shape shifter fueled composed all the hairstyles ever seen worn breeds dreads bonds twists like a three d version of hype hair. It's been dozens of powers in my studio in the dead of winter crushing neck Lon chicken wire with a latch hook sitting. In my studio leaving the hair I felt deeply connected to the generations of women in my family who spun naps into self esteem I was groomed to understand that my hair was a social litmus test that could determine if I got a job or found love black women had for a long time internalize beauty standards demoralized them. So I create an elegant monster because. That's how I felt inside tame but just barely against my will every the Inter disciplinarian. The aesthetic tone of this work was inspired in part by the magic realism in Toni Morrison's literature. Here she is in conversation with writer, Gino de at a New York Public Library event in twenty fourteen talking about the relationship between people of Color and animal imagery in her work. PS. This is like one of my favorite exchanges ever between two humans. The to humans has happened to be a Pulitzer Prize winner and a Nobel laureate something that occurs throughout your work this thin line between the animal in the human, I only remembered the horses they were so beautiful so brutal and they stood like men besides the fact that you can like. Every motherfucker on the planet sentence by sentence. This is that small fact. Yeah I was curious about this line curious about that tension.

It was the president's defense though it was lucky in its way they'd not quite reached the presidential convoy when the very next day the depth charger uh bomb for submarines fell off the back of the Boeton blew up but within a few days at full steam the William deported or the Willie D he is the new crew had started to call the new boat you're taking its position alongside the Iowa and its Philip Defenders as they attempted to cross the Atlantic whether it was this show of force force the two aircraft carriers three destroyers the forty five thousand ton battleship itself or whether it was good timing or planning or just plain lock the USS Iowa did cross the scathed all pretty smooth actually Roosevelt and is entourage watch movies in his quarters every night even bathed in a specially built BAFTA the only one in the fleet in when it was being installed back in Virginia. It was the only clue any of the crew had that VIP might be joining them on their next mission none of danger in friendly waters off the coast of Gibraltar relaxed and bathe the commander-in-chief wanted to see what all of these impressive ship centers unders command could do so he asked for demonstration whether balloons were inflated on the deck of the Iowa and sent up into the clear sky and then guns roared the fifty caliber cannons and the battleship the anti aircraft battery when the balloons would drift into range the destroyers destroyers were joining the crew of the Willie d did to new sailors never seen combat. You've been on a secret silent mission for the past several days seize the opportunity to get some shots off as the President Watch from his wheelchair on the deck of the Iowa down in the torpedo room on the Willie d the torpedo commander decided to run through drill to launch any all of the torpedoes were disarmed anyway just wanted to take this opportunity to make sure his men were battle-ready so he had them lineup the nearest target which in this case happened to be the USS Iowa about six thousand yards off port and started to go through the motions. There were all sorts of safety measures when it came to the torpedoes to prevent both accidental launches into avatars even had a phrase the commander had to say exactly so before each launch if he didn't he would reveal himself as some sort of impostor but he was known posture and so he said if I wasn't a torpedo officer I wouldn't be here which is pretty dry as codewords go but he says it's a little phrase presses the button for torpedo one. Maybe make solution sound for his imaginary. Engineered torpedo says again. If I wasn't a torpedo officer I wouldn't be here. Presses the button to wish if I wasn't a torpedo officer I wouldn't be here I of the button for torpedo three but this time there is a real is alive torpedo carrying five hundred pounds of ten miles an hour heading straight toward the boat carrying president of the United States who is on his way to figure out how d day is supposed to work. PEDO GUY is freaking out calls up to the bridge. The Iowa needs to know they need to get out of the way there may not the be enough time to get out of the way they need to do something but again radio not supposed to radio so the signal officer newly minted signal officers starts flashing a coded message you know a light on mirror fast as again and so they see this in the Iowa and start reading repeat O- accidentally in the water traveling away from the Iowa well that's good. It's better than traveling toward the island but but wait the signal officer has just signaled that the last single was mistake now there signaling something about the Willie d turning to get out of the way baby. That doesn't make any sense at this point. The captain of the William deported realize that you cannot trust anyone on the William deported to get anything right so he throws radio silence out the window and says Lion Lion Lion. There's a torpedo coming right at you the US Iwa jumps into action engines engines full steam helmsmen turning the wheel like he's playing roulette but it turns out that turning a battleship is exactly like turning a battleship and the best they can do is try to angle it away from the torpedo in hope that it won't be a directed hope that the I won't blow up all at once. Franklin Roosevelt is on the deck. Now there is a room boom off the bridge that is heavily armored might survive an explosion but it is several flights up in Franklin. Roosevelt is in wheelchair so he asks his secret service detail to push him closer to the really he has always wanted to see a torpedo in the water. He's going to die might as well take it off. The list before or does is groaning straining against the waves propellers turning the secret service has their pistols aimed at the water hoping to shoot out the torpedo which he's not going to work at all but try and it will not surprise you that. FDR doesn't get killed here you you know that but in this moment he doesn't no one does he is the president of the United States and all that entails tails but he is also just a sixty one year old man stuck in a wheelchair because his legs don't work men who is terrified of being caught helpless in a fire men who had regularly practice dropping from his bed in crawling out the door just in case he sat there helpless wondering if the ship is about I to explode in the same moment the new sailors the former farmers in factory workers in school boy's on the Willy Porter and just their help us thinking they just kill the president the torpedo broke up in the chop kicked up by the Iowa's propellers as they were straining to turn the ship to safety in the Iowa turned its guns William d porter because clearly some German spy gotten on board. You couldn't just be gross incompetence. Let's go out to figure figure out that yeah was it one of the torpedoes was accidentally armed when it wasn't supposed to be was the president was delivered safely to allies in Algeria the rest of the convoy escorted the porter to Bermuda reach member of its crew was arrested a first in US naval history though everyone but the torpedo commander was let go the captain was stripped of his command and remanded to desk duty meanwhile FDR had a fun anecdote to lighten things up at his meeting with Stalin. Alan and Churchill gave him part in torpedo commander though he didn't seem to have any problem with USS William deported next assignment patrolling Alaska's Aleutian on January.

I don't know if all nick earlier you seem to be suggesting that like all of life in a certain ways like passage. POTLUCK that like you're going to be confronted with Shit. You're going to have to try to make sense of and form associations between in order to like narrative advising cultivate your own experience in the world. We do a little portraiture of ourselves in the things that we find connective interesting and you know associated when we talked about the passages suggest. Let about the world or discussions of the world is of interest to us right All right so we will read a passage that it's yes. Who's who will do this? I'll do this great then. I'll read a passage and we will be forced to that tax tax that you read will dictate how we interpret miteks absolutely in a kind of her music pinball and as of right now none of us have any idea what those takes randomly selected passages. We're hoping it will work out. But it could conceivably go terribly so first we have our case. Text it to me. The numbers thirty six six. Who some years ago the writer payroll off? Enquist made the wise comment one one day we shall die but all the other days we shall be alive. If I add to that a quotation I read in a repair workshop. When my car was in for an oil change the picture becomes even more clear? It said don't take life too seriously. You come out of it alive no matter what. I'm not quite in tune with that last quotation and of course life is a serious matter but I'm not criticizing anybody. Everybody makes their own choices. Those two stations are words. I repeat almost every day silently only to myself my life is mine and can only be lived by me. I don't know how long I shall survive having been smitten with this disease. It is incurable. Terrible I shall never be able to shake it off. The question is simply. How long can the chemotherapy? I am undergoing oppose those cancerous cells and keep them subdued. Nobody knows neither I nor my doctors but chemotherapy is both a savior and a vandal. At the same time the site of toxins strike hard both infected cells and healthy ones. Much of my summer has been spent trying to deal with the fact that the medics discovered that my kidneys were being badly affected by the side of toxins. Oxen's for more than a month I didn't know if the problems in my kidneys would prove to be chronic and hence impossible to put right which would have been disastrous however After repeated x-rays and blood tests the doctors established that the kidneys had recovered sufficiently from chemotherapy. To continue that was the day of momentous relief but there there are no guarantees. I have no doubt that my time is mine and mine alone. I don't know how long it will last. Try Not to think about it since there is no point and try to live as if everything is normal so that text we let's sit and what is the key that will help us interprets the key that will help us interpret that text with number is number two co my God and that text is as follows Fuck Donald J trump responds to cruise who's accusations on national enquirer story quote. I have no idea whether or not the cover story about Ted. It crews in this week's issue of National Inquirer is true or not but I had absolutely nothing to do with. It did not know about it and I have not as yet read it. I have nothing to do with the national enquirer. Fuck me I have nothing to do with the national enquirer and unlike lying Ted Cruz and unlike lying. Ted Cruz I do not surround myself with political hacks and Henchman and then pretend total innocence Ted Cruz. Problem with the National Inquirer is his and his alone and while they while they were right about O.. Jay Simpson John Edwards many others. I certainly hope they are. I certainly hope they are not right about lying Ted Cruz. I look forward to spending the week in Wisconsin winning the the Republican nomination and ultimately the presidency in order to make America Great Again Donald J trump. Okay Hey the author of number two number two asserts that let me say this. This sentence jumped out at me from the text. The nick read Ted Cruz is problem with the national enquirer is his and his alone breath. Very interesting fatalistic way to look at things when someone has problems. Oh my life is mine and can only be lived by me. I don't know how along shall survive having been smitten with this disease in a way right. Okay let's do this the other number two as a very by now familiar to sort of double. We'll speak in other words. He's saying I don't know I'm not involved. The enquirer the enquirer take cruises problem with the enquirer's Ted Cruz alone at the same time. The Inquirer was is right about O.. J. Simpson John Edwards. Does he my keys. Both endorsing the enquirer and also distancing himself from not unlike how M- ankle the the author of the passage views chemotherapy right In a certain way these things are designed to come in and help but he says something a a steward in a vandal. Or something. Yeah exactly and nobody knows neither I nor my doctor. It very much both ways. Yes that's exactly right and so much so the you end up in a situation where the kidneys you have no idea whether or not like this is going to become chronic or if it's just Yankel is observing is that. His Treatment for cancer resembles assembles the logic of death in a certain way or that it fails to nullify the logic of death cancer operates on and Donald J trump is noticing. Is that the logic of the inquirer is both like null and void by not having anything to do with him and also Write about several things. There's just there's just no way to know. In some way he leaves you bereft of a stance on the national enquirer. Not Unlike the dying man leaves you bereft of a stance on it. It makes perfect sense to me that we're we're talking about the fight between medical and cancer. We can sort of put We we can use our our explanatory text as a kind of guide and we take Ted Cruz position and say the mangoes like Ted Cruz and Donald. J trump is like cancer. The introducer doubt who the planning to the ultimate victory. You're going the wrong way. You're interpreting tube. I number no no no no. I'm only drying the correspondence correspondence to start with. Right in our drama of living and dying with cancer are we like the enquirer. Ted Cruz more like Ted Cruz. Because it's our problem alone right. The key line in this key text is I certainly hope they are not right about lying Ted Ed cruise to like turn that interpretive key in the lock of the first ones like we're all on our fucking own we're all GonNa die. Roll fucking lying Ted Cruz. It's right there in the name. We know what we do. We fucking lie. Were Lying Ted Cruz. Lying Ted Cruz wants truth about the enquirer. Yeah right but it's up to us. Lying Ted Cruz is of the world to fuck in deal with the fact. Chemotherapy kills us in the same moment. Ills part of us and to complain about into act as though. We're not what we are lying. Ted Cruz born to die right is to play into the fucking cancer hand. Well this this is the other thing. Let's be honest like we know with our interpretive texts that even though it's from specific moment in the campaign just like like in life everyone is always in a specific woman in the campaign but we know how it ends the end is all trump. Wins inevitable right. I was just about to say that. The mangled deals with two competing stations. One saying.

"I mean is this. Is this toxic masculine. She's always die anything. It'd be eleven ignoring for a moment that he calls this way of killing oneself an insult to death channel. Now about he's trying to say it's nothing clean. It's nothing nice and and it would have been gallant to die another way. I wonder if the Gallantry isn't in fact the toxic masculinity and in fact what what the author of this passage is sort. You've asserting is that this dirty und- dainty method of embracing death is the is in a way above all that toxic galaxy far more courageous than worrying about being gallant. Right this this passage you has a kind of radical responsibility attached to it for me whenever whenever whenever you think about sort of your hand being forced what was I supposed to do to you know so of course followed orders. Of course this is like the classic counter example of A. You always have options. You just have to want it badly enough and if you have the will there will be methods although they may not be pretty impressive and really this passage is calling you out forever thinking that they should have been pretty impressive right you ever. Why do we sometimes even still walk around thinking I think about this sometimes in like the physician assisted suicide discussions? Ed occasionally occur. I think one can't help but find a dozen ways to end one's life looking around household objects even a modest inclined kind of all these vehicles. We Marshall all the time the trains that run at high speeds to Ed weirdly accessible tracks. Why are we looking for dainty ways to die? Um I think it obscures the truth that this other seems to want to remind me of right. Your Life is something that you are in charge of and you want a dainty way to die. You're already already Advocating that church. That's right and the and we can become obsessed with sort of the perception the the we can create ghost of our impressive selves. Who It's we think would be fine with dying but not in a way that it's embarrassing? What does that mean that caveat? There I mean it's gross to interact with with like poop. Whatever whatever you're trying to kill yourself that's right? There's a way which really engaged with the problem. This is what I also have. I love having the in my memory Marie in this passage it goes even farther where we're like where he's like. What a way to insult death? If I had to like say well how I remember it would be like freedom. Never tasted better her. It never smelled more beautiful. His mouth was filled. More honor than you'll have fancy words could have because the idea of praising as like a specially especially noteworthy this incredibly gross thing to seem so radical to me the idea that no matter where you are in life and and no matter how trapped you feel and constrained by your situation you always have options. Yeah and like not just to kill yourself but like to change how you feel about things you now to change. What seems like an ally to you and what seems like a cruel joke right? Yeah like how many other people will look like shit stick. Is this indignity that they have to deal with south versus this guy fucking German. Who sees wait a minute? This is my ticket Outta here. You know and like the the things that could alleviate the pain of being being whatever situation you're in they often are like that they often seem like oppressions and indignant. When in fact they're the key to the fucking door? Most of the difficult choices you have to make are not between lean-to clearly visible options there. It's about seeing the option. You're not seeing. Yeah right The the way the pastor starts don't imagine that only great men have the toughness to break through the travels of human bondage. In fact I think that when you look around your prison cell and don't see a sword what this author's authors clue me into. Is that apparently a line of thought that I could wrongly enter into is all. I guess it's only for great men to break through the travels of human rights bondage. But you're not seeing the shit sticks around you which means in a certain way this great man myth is there to blind you to your own will which by the way as the same other says is the only thing keeping. Can you alive there. That's really power. I mean for passage that deals with slavery and like a non contemptuous way it is something oddly humanistic about the guy who's very high born extending the greatest nobility. He can imagine that somebody who's a prisoner of war and in fact. I think there's a suggestion where when he brings up Kato. So who's known as the great moral like force the truly like great man uncorruptible when he is when Cato uses the sort of course it goes badly Lee. And he fucks it up fucks it up and he has to rip out his own bowels with his hands is so that later when the shit sticks waller our hero he when he says is like how Galilee he would've used a sword because in a way the one of the problems with slavery is. You don't know what Kato you have locked down and sort of reduced to having to take these options. There might hide a nobility far beyond gallon. Bullshit you'll think of philosophy is like try. Yeah but how how are lovely. He would've jumped off a precipice. How do you think that's I'd love that urgency? It seems like it sounds like exactly what the previous passages sort of recommending serve. You've getting in the game. Yeah I mean that is exactly right although it does seem like this is death and the other one was life but You're going to have to put yourself fucking out there for either one right. If you were in any kind of bondage. It does seem like what we are what we are saying to you. That bondage is systematize education. Perhaps even the cultural Shackles of whatever like John Wayne slurping up like we are encouraging you not to take it and to look around for what implements are available to. Because that's all that you're you're great admired masters have done. Yeah that's right. These really are all kind of three the same passage in the This is proven. Uh that like The only way to know yourself and to live anything like a good life is to feel really fucking cautious about accepting any of the things that are presented for you. The thing about being not feeling empowered of of becoming sort of a What's the thing? Before Babbler. A boxer locher that feeling of being a boxer. He is described in that first. Passage as like feeling. Like you've sort of out-lived yourself you don't have you don't have your purpose sort of nothing but apologies. He's and you. You don't know how to sort of reconnect at this feeling. That like books will save us or great men alone can do what needs to be done is what I think. This last passage is about fringe cells from. There's no book or ancient that can tell you about the shit stick but the should stick is there. You have to find it by by like believing that it's available both everyone and seeing it or something and there's a kind of there. There's a ruthless desire to escape. That has advocated. I think or at least felt in in the first passage right the the men who who either long or wish they would long for any kind of escape and then the the desire to escape from like the the just stoltifying being botch ready education program and then of course the desire to escape bondage and this mortal coil prescribed role for you. We're trying to say always look for the escape because it seems to be available to you. In fact it is probably less ornate and convoluted than the system of of unescapable that is being thrust on and no it by the indignity. It's fucking it feels fucking Awful to cry a man in public or whatever feels fucking awful to lose the respect to people who might love European your education and feel awful to shove shit stick down your throat but all three of the same tickets of freedom. But what I like about all these passages that they're you're trying to de stigmatize indignity so in other words yes one one mark of advancement will be that. It doesn't feel like indignity anymore. Even in this case ace they re characterized these things that perhaps once were called indignities as escapes liberations. The fact that you have suicide as an option to the gods gods keep no one in this life by force is not about your relationship to death anymore than it is about your relationship to where you are in your life. Yeah it's just about presents instant responsibility your ever present ability to kill yourself. Ought to be vilifying this it's the central analogy. Did you buy what you understand everything else in your life. It's an inside out version of the present moment you are embracing right now as a living being. You should do something with and not squander definitely that's it's pretty good passage potluck baby.

"To take potluck or potluck to take what is offered to you late. Sixteenth Century unannounced guests. Who Show up at a friend's home at dinnertime are likely to to be invited to stay for dinner but are reminded that they will have to take potluck? I eat to eat whatever. The family is eating the second meaning. A group meal in which guests bring a food contribution came later in some regions. These events are called J suppers or Jacob joins passage baby. Some sources suggest this has to do with the Biblical story of Jacob tricking his brother Esau out of his birthright with an offering of food and here he stood on the mountain an early in the morning the old man with his one and only hope. My father muttered something to me. I responded with a mumbled what he shouted. You heard me he you knew it was the weightiest sacrifice God could ask but he also knew that nothing was too great for God. I curled my arms around my body as he stood over me like a Titan and delivered the blows of course we all know the outcome of the story the rest of my childhood. We hardly spoke if we imagine that Abraham by anxiously desperately looking around and discovered the ram that would save his son. Would you not then have gone home in disgrace without confidence in the future. Mass propaganda discovered that its audience was ready at all times to believe the worst out the self assurance that he was prepared to bring to God any sacrifice whatsoever no matter how absurd without the divine voice from heaven in his heart proclaimed claimed to him. God's grace and love did not particularly object to being deceived because it held every statement to be ally anyhow. I wish now that I had let him by me Tuxedo. They had let him be a dad. Having cut myself off from him and by association the rest of my family I was incurring psychological debts. What's that would come two years later in the guise of romantic misconceptions wrongheaded quest for solitude nor did Abraham say now I have become an old man? My youth is gone. My dream has not been fulfilled. I have heard it said but the complicated childhood can lead to a life in the arts under such conditions. Grammy now a quiet evening. One could make people believe the most fantastic statements one day. Let me rejoice in what you gave me in the constellation of my old age and trust that if the next day they were giving irrefutable proof of their falsehood. They would take refuge in cynicism.
