"What else is interested in the top of the talking heads remain in light number thirty, nine, number, forty, David Bowie, ziggy stardust. Okay computer radiohead number forty two tribe called quest low end theory number forty three. Forty Four Paul Simon Graceland number forty six, the ramones forty, seven outcast quinine number forty, nine in Jay z's the blueprint at number fifty. Now. That's five hundred albums and total. But that gives you a sense of what was considered the cream of the crop. They're in the top hundred and you can just see we have a lot more hip hop a lot more female representation a lot more people of color. Now you still have the Beatles Dylan. Michael Jackson aretha Franklin Bruce springsteen occupying these you know really high placements on this rolling. Stone List but. You can see they're trying to make room for new sensibilities and just the changing culture and where we are at as a country and twenty twenty trying to be sensitive to that and I guess you could say, Hey, rolling stone they're just pandering you know they wanna put every Beatles album in the top twenty ran Bob Dylan and just call today. But I do think there is an earnest reckoning within music criticism, the music publishing industry and. You know I'm just going give him the benefit of the doubt here and they realized they needed to update their list for the times and you can't just focus on rock music and rock music from the sixties through the eighties like you gotTa Expand Hip. Hop. To our be you gotta expand a soul, music. Contrary. the Blues Jazz. reggae tone pop. All ton like just incorporate. More, genres and I think they tried to do that here too limited success. It's not a home run. But you know I think. It's it's admirable that they made that attempt. There are like interesting questions though with this list, I mean just fundamentally, how do you decide? What is an album that is in the four hundred's versus what's an album in the two hundreds it all feels a bit. Like Arbitrary really like how do you? Delineate that whole thing now, they said that they. Created the list with. receiving votes from more than three hundred artists, producers, critics in music industry figures. Tabulated, top fifty album lists. From all the sources. So you know they did try to incorporate various points of view and figures within music and get their input. But still just like, okay. How do you sift through all then and figure out? Okay. What's going to go to five hundred? Four like is it feels like you're splitting hairs with the votes there. and. Then you have questions like, why did surgeon peppers full so far I get that they had to make room for other voices and figures but. How's IT number one in two, thousand and three, and then twenty, four and twenty twenty like. I mean we can talk about the music itself. But I I would just like rolling stone to explain that and it's not really explained. And then just some personal takes I take highway sixty one over blood on the tracks as the highest. Ranking for Dylan albums I'm also surprised blonde on Blonde is higher on this list. You know the rolling stone loves Bob. Dylan South and they've. Done so many features in coverage of the guy. So I'm not saying we needed more there, but I'm just saying me personally. Blood on the tracks. That's a great bob dill. Now think highway sixty one is. Just a masterpiece I I would take that as my top Bob Dylan album..

"Cd WE'RE GONNA take a lead the professional. That's yeah well that that's kind of it. That's that's Graceland I mean yeah. I think it's the question that we have to ask ourselves now is. Is it a stone cold classic? I'd say I think every every poll told us nine nine. Yeah Yeah we debate this.

It's like well. It's not a cycle. Classic like not every track is a banger. But I think what this does politically historically What it does with the gener- and fusing genres and things like that It it moved the dial and for me because of that. It's a stone. Cold Classic. So wait so we so obviously. Td Amateur is. He dropped his ships on very early on. I know what I do best. Yeah that's my favorite song okay.

Notes wrought returning dishman second tank. Give him a VINDALOO. That's true it's okay. It's a great time interesting. Yeah so what are we looking at?

Is that the Woodward Self taught owed it is upon us. But this this this came after a bit of a high volume and in terms of Goth Funchal and obviously pullman going separate choosing choosing pullman. I mean wait wait. Are you right am pull form as a singer songwriter?

Glenn Account He's he's about DACA poetry. Yahoo like it's it's a juxtaposition lyric. Some of the lyrics co written. Sorry that he put some of these music Sweet Beautiful Major Times of the African Fan. And then he's got these heavy things incredible thinking such an amazing how how far ahead of this is just from his work with Simon and Garfunkel. Well it's interesting I think Not Quite on any of these so I'm just talking about field head but he Like I've gone so that it was summoned. Garfunkel comforting. I think it was hard talk with Central Park and it was actually bought causing trouble people with their pocket. Yeah People were called. You know their bad. And then he recorded a solo album and that was the first time I tried to get off until the next recoding some indeed was a solo album and go Gone Funchal to come and see on some of the tracks and and do the karate but I think what happened in the studio old stuff reemerged. sheet the fan again. And then he didn't use any dot Gov phone call tracks I read that in my rarities lawyer. Yeah apparently Wanted big So they didn't really give much to the prime all. This is the solo album full graceland. They didn't give it much love And he was a conduct sane is like a head thing but it's on Graceland was mind Yes which you know that happened to be. I think I read somewhere focusing on artists donor and trains tonight through aiding saying they just didn't say anything really out. That is starting to ease back catalogue and I'll happy with it. Obviously because of that there wasn't much pressure on. You can have a lot more creative freedom. How did you get into the into the the album interesting? As I said before when I was traveling around with original drama we dropped through the middle of Australia Yukon. Get even radio won't be picked up so we had a few seda into one of them. The black album Metallica METALLICA's black album. At the Parnell wasn't a big Fan So we we had a few state H. And Jason The drama. He Brought A. He's the guy and he put it on and it blew.

A lot of Carson's recommended me to other venues which doesn't really happen much. He I don't think and so I'll get one GEIC. Do do well you know? Pay Them on amount of money to luck.

So how how did you get into music? Did you have much musical influences growing up? Loretta was My parents are terrible. The worst stage multiples of crowds. Just let gliding my grandparents. Sheet music tight. So what examples. Kenny Jake come on. Hey can not that I mean. He's not that PAT. He's that good enough so great half. I'll get married Iraq and Monica right here and he's good That actually that'd be He. He had a news incurred That was he's done so wrong. That was all other league fan Yeah my brother yet. He introduced me to a lot of punk. Like trends overall affects brands. That I grew up on that stuff. So that's why replace are hiding this sort of Zhong 'cause if you get up to keep it all thank you had Yeah so let's go office really fish and although it's sort of being that's what. I grew up on because my brother which is awesome. He's five years old These ended up to a music fan.

Hoti backgrounds and energetic record So to get these blue sort of thing it's like with nine into the heart of God. You know with their background music. So two thousand sixteen snow in Soho hips. Hips comes in for me. That that's the song that I think is is classic nineteen twenties.

Much lower related law starts We Love Traditional Blues needed but we just found but a lot of people that morning that thing when necessarily the he can you give it a schedule and then We can get a lot more people into it which fans We probably what a fight festival whose role which is a bit differently. Not until like two and four. I think it's because of that. These date with the traditional blues. I'm top And that sort of thing would have blew things into the rook sort of music festival.

"Album that I just absolutely love like the drumming and the club razor just a beautiful album. And so I have this like solo dance party by myself on the seventeenth day. Just bumping Paul Simon's. Graceland and my Evening Post on Instagram that night was like tough day for me out here in the deep snow in the silence for a long time. But cited to listen to something I put that out there. Just like no big deal so day thirty five a couple of weeks later as you mentioned Jenna says to me, and I'm getting pretty tired. I'm up on the polar plateau five days out from the south pole trying to stay really focused on that, you know, getting to that way point. And she says, hey, I know you're exhausted. I know it's been a long day. You've already done all that your steps. And this is usually we'd get on the phone, and I would go to sleep. And she goes I need you to call this one other number and I'm like like what like why? And she's like, she's just trust me. Call the number and I'm like, well, just do it. You know, and I find it. So I'm thinking it's a reporter. I'm nearly sure what it is. And I. Call this number in his voice, guy instance, a phone like, Mike. Hi, this is Colin ferment Artika. And he's like, oh, hi, this is Paul and I'm like Paul and he's like Paul Simon mills like, wait what thirty five days in. I haven't talked to anyone. I'm like, my hallucinating like my actually sitting in the middle of Antarctica phones, all Simon if I completely lost my mind of but sure enough it was him. And it was you know, of course, I was just like kind of stunned and shocked by this conversation. My, you know, probably social skills are pretty limited given how much solitude I've been in. But we aren't having this conversation. You know, he asked me about an article some of the how cold is it the basic questions, you might ask. And then we end up having this conversation, which is like stuck with me, and such a deep way as I had said started explore this idea of being in artist more, so than an athlete and just like, I said, this sort of canvas being the endurance sports. And so we end up having this conversation about like his album Graceland and how he created in. How he went to South Africa during. Part tied which was really controversial. But to get these beautiful drum tracks from these local tribes and the process of this creation. And ultimately for him was his art piece of this beautiful masterpiece album that has inspired millions of people through dance and play and love and laughter and all these things and we ended up talking for thirty or forty minutes, very expensive satellite phone, call from the bottom of the world. But it was just like it hit me at just the right time to just kind of keep me going really connect me back to this larger purpose, which was yes, I was doing this. Yes. I wanted to be the first person.

"Kind of desert, and he says more often than not people die of thirst when crossing the desert a few minutes before seeing the palm trees on the horizon. And so it was just this reminder of like, yo like you're in it like you're getting tested right now. But if we can manage to get back out of this. Out of this tent? Remember that this too shall pass than you? Hopefully, get to the other side of this. And sure enough on that day, it was tough. But you know, taking my tent up and down in the storm takes an hour and a half. And I so I do that. But instead of getting my sleeping bag out. I take my tent down again fix. My skin's and get back out and battle through this storm managed twenty miles that day, which was a pretty solid mileage for me on any given day. And I think to me that was both the lowest moment, but also a crux moment where I'm being tested by all of these things, and it would have been there's a million reasons to quit in that moment. At least maybe not quit the whole project, but quit in that moment. Be like, I'm falling hurt. My sleds gonna follow me. My skin's are falling off the storms less than a week. Like, I'm starting to get frostbite on my nose. My cheeks I'm beat up, and I still manage to you know, with the strength is sort of others vibration from family and friends supporters able to kind of draw some strengthen inspiration to keep going. That's incredible. How many days I think it was like halfway you're about halfway in. When. During your evening, call Jen. She's like, I need you to be around this between this time and this time to make sure to answer the right? Yes. It was hilarious. See where you go with this. This is one of my favorite stories. So this whole adventure so about so I actually spent most of the time in Thailand, I actually brought very little with me the me at media on my phone and south because I actually was really curious about these flow states and kind of exploring that in my mind and didn't wanna have kind of this crutch of listen bunch of music or podcasts, however side note, the tangent of the story, I did listen to the ritual podcast for quite a few times out there. It was actually a few podcasts that I had with. And there was one moment. I'll get back the other story second. But there was one moment particular that was so apropos which was your interview with death-ray right after she won the Boston marathon. And she, you know, she her whole thing. Is keep showing up and that was kind of her mantra. And it was like I was just at the right time that I heard that like first of all like your energy on this podcast is so just resonant and positive and beautiful, and I just couldn't allow any kind of even negative voices in my head. So your voice me this weird to say to you. It's like it's so soothing and calming I'm a big fan. And so that was amazing. But that conversation you had with her and particular as hitting that deep snow, and it was like, why am I going so much slower? And why was this? And I hear her whole story about persevering and ultimately winning the Boston marathon her whatever twelve year of being a professional, and she's like showing up just keep showing up. And so that that really hit me but about around about this similar time. I had been a lot of times in silence, but your podcast was up lifting and also needed just up lifting moment. So I put up one one album that I brought with me was Paul Simon's Graceland and crank that up on the sixteenth day. I played it start to finish about six or seven times. And it's one of those albums this Lou. Ping it. And it's one of those albums, you know, my parents played at a time when I was a kid, I think it came out in the early nineties saw maybe seven eight years old when that came out an album that I just absolutely love like the drumming and the club razor just a beautiful album. And so I have this like solo dance party by myself on the seventeenth day. Just bumping Paul Simon's. Graceland and my Evening Post on Instagram that night was like tough day for me out here in the deep snow in the silence for a long time. But cited to listen to something I put that out there. Just like no big deal so.

"This weird sport where you're staring at a black line. Like, you can't talk. There's no I contact. There's no really can't really chat to your teammates. Even you're kind of in this zone. So before I knew the word flow state or high performance. This isn't me as a kid. I realize I was sort of tapping in and out of those states, and I became more conscious of that as. As I went through my life became a professional triathlete after all other crazy. Tangent of my life being severely burned in the fire and Thailand and being told out never walk again. We can talk about that. If you want, but the more. So what happened when I was raising traveling as a friend of mine came to me, and she said, I don't know much about sports as Turkish woman who has a wife of a good friend of mine, and she says, I don't know much about sports, but just by observing this. I see that like this is all in your guys minds out here. And I was like. Yeah. -solutely like throw swimming or the traffic on this traffic on. And she just when I was raising travel impression. She said, you know, I'd recommend that you go to these meditation retreats, and I was like cool. I'm interested meditation. But I don't like no lot about it. I haven't done this as two thousand eleven and she's like, yeah. If you've heard of a pasta meditation these ten day silent meditation retreats, ten days, no reading, no, right. No. I contact deep meditation and use like you should try it. And I was like well don't need a little background and meditation before this is like, no like just just do it. It's free. There's centers around the. It's completely free to go. Like oh. And so me being the kind of like jump in head first type of person as you can probably tell here. I was like great I'll go so my off season and traffic and that you're sign up for this meditation retreat, my stepdad drives me up through treat. And he goes he goes, hey, Colin like, I've pretty much never heard you shut up for a minute in your life. And so I'm gonna wait here in the parking lot our because once he realizes the terrible idea. I'll be here. Waiting to drive. You home you joking. He's he does the mazing mentor and influence in my life incredible man, but he's living on like, you're pretty extroverted and your time you're going to sit in silence by yourself or ten days. Sure. Enough, I stayed for those ten days, and it had just a profound impact on my life of learning about that self awareness, and my mind in my brain, etc. And so what from that practice, which I've gone back to this at ten day retreat. I try to go every single year if I can done several and as well as a daily practice with it, I've kind of taken that into my into my campus into my artwork into my sport. And this curiosity. The of the mind, and where we can go in mind and brain, and so one of my deep curiosity about Antarctica. Honestly was yes. Unlocking the physical potential inside of me. But as a gateway to do that, exploring the mind, and what better place to be alone in this endlessly, white landscape, the sun never sets. There's no change of days. There's no dark. It's a blank white canvas. And like I said, I literally deleted almost all the media from my iphone as to not actually had a couple of school of greatness podcast. A couple of ritual podcast a few podcasts and a few albums out there. This Paul Simon Graceland a couple of others, but there's very few. I mentioned eighty ninety percent of the time in complete silence. And it was a beautiful thing to explore that. So how did I tap into that? Like, I said some times it was thirty seconds. Some of the times it was was a minute or two. But as I kept on these repetition of days exploring, this place, my mind, sometimes it was days two days three days where the sequence of days would come through and high performance and the stakes are high. It's fifty sixty mph winds if I let go of my tent, I have no shelter. It's gone. It's eighty degrees wind chill, minus eighty degrees wind chill, but I'm finding the space my mind that is locked in and calm, and the most most profound experience of that was actually on my very last day..

"And you know, the the by faith has like pretty, you know, despite seeming like quite a progressive religion on issues like race and equality of men and women, you know, there were there were two dealbreakers that as I came into Adelaide scence, just it became clear that they were going to be unacceptable to me one is a prohibition on the use of of alcohol and intoxicating drugs of any kind, and you know, as a teenager, I discovered alcohol and marijuana and intoxicated. And that that became a little bit untenable, and it also does not have very progressive teachings around homosexuality. And so, you know, when I started coming into the consciousness of myself as a queer person that wasn't gonna work. And ultimately, I think that led to mine tire immediate family, abandoning the faith. What was it like growing up in in also? Also africa. So we we moved to Kenya. When I was four years old. I should say my mother's from Ethiopia, although we never lived in Ethiopia. And so I'd kind of grown up in my father's a white American from Minnesota. So, you know, I'm biracial I'm like, literally African American and we moved to the and my parents actually met any THEO when my dad was an exchange student, and then came back to the US got married. My brothers, and I were born here in the US in when I was four we moved to Kenya. And did all my grade school years there, and then high school in we came back to the US for bit. My dad did a PHD at the university of Minnesota. So I get to claim that I'm from Minnesota because they spent my agonizing middle school years there Roseville area middle school. So what was it like, I mean, that's a great question. I mean, I think anybody's childhood is like exactly what it is. Right. And you only know what you experience and for me. I think growing up in Kenya. We moved around to a bunch of different places within Kenya. You know, that feels like ancient history in grade school in my memories are sort of fragmentary, but on one level incredibly exciting in ways that must have seen really scary to my parents, you know, Kenya. At the time was governed by this guy, Daniel Moi who was a longtime dictator, and you know, there were secret police and things like that there were coup attempts. I remember one coup attempt. I think I was six years old when it happened, you know, with their tanks rolling through the streets and looting and things like that. But to me felt like really exciting events. But I think to my parents were pretty terrifying. Were you get interested in knowing your six, but like what was Kenyan media like like how to journalism? Mhm come into your life. I mean journalism really came into my life more when we lived in Ghana when I was in high school when I was a little kid. I remember, you know, we living in Kenya. I remember watching the national broadcaster and saying to mom that I thought that the president worked at the airport because you know, they would always show on TV him at the airport greeting going on a on international trip. But you know, we didn't we didn't live in a connected media saturated world, right? I mean, I I spent a year as a kid living at a rural agricultural college where my dad was teaching, you know, some dairies science class or something. So I I feel like as a little kid. I was very kind of untethered. My dad was always a an enthusiast for the latest latest technology. So while we were living at this rural? Call hedge he managed to at one point bring home as CD player in CDs were brand new at the time. This was the eighties, of course. And he. He I think he had three CDs, and they were Paul Simon's Graceland a Fleetwood MAC's greatest hits, and I think a Lionel Richie CD. So I'm not really answering your question about news media..

I want people to watch me get cau-. I want people to watch me just get blindsided by the failure of my own idea. I don't want to safety net because I think. That's more interesting to watch for the consumer what I never ever want is land in a safe middle ground where you plan it so meticulously, and you understand what you have so much that you can't take chances beyond that. I never want to get to a place ever in my career with any work. I do where I'm reasonably sure it's going to end. Well, and then it ends reasonably well, I wanna either succeed big or fail hard.

We have a lot of perspective now like to today we'd go, oh, and all male jam Ben, whatever. But in nineteen ninety six bed. No, this was like, I swear to God. Dave Matthews was kind of like severe sieve in nineteen ninety. Six. It was like kindly were kind of an underground. They weren't super mainstream. This song brought them to the mainstream, but like they were like a college band fish was underground exact. No, I'm you're absolutely right. My fiance. Fucking loves fish. I can't believe that I got to the point where I agreed to marry him with him, liking fish as much as he does, but God bless, I do. And Dave Matthews band is also one of his favorite bands. From that time, they were a lot like fish in that regard. Like people didn't really know about them a whole lot in the mid nineties, but then they blew up after this song for sure. But I'm just saying, I think that's what makes it so funny is like yet today scattered, it's ridiculous, but like looking at it through the lens of back, then we talk about like a lot of nineties bans on this show, right? Yeah, yeah. No music is a spectrum. So like it's okay to listen to bikini, kill and get something out of that and get something out of this. I'm not. I'm not saying like, you're not allowed to listen to Dave Matthews. I just want to laugh at it. Sure, sure. No, it's like I agree with you. It's it's it's hilarious to get to like the worst lyrics here guys. You're like preemptively defending this stuff. Listen. Listen. Okay. Sweet. Like candy to my soul. Sweet you rock and sweet. You roll see at the time rock and roll was a big thing in the nineties. So this lyric wasn't corny at all. See for Carney. It's okay to be Corning. This was not real rock and roll. Do not appreciate them calling this rock and roll this clearly pop music. It's not real music. What what would you classify Dave Matthews band, mommy rock. This song is, I mean, I think they would just say, if you were to look at charts, it'd be in the rock music charts or whatever. But historically there probably classical slash adult contemporary something like that. And they're the people before them would be Paul Simon's Graceland and Grateful Dead and stuff like that. Definitely. Sweet like candy to my soul. Sweet you rock and sweet you roll. I'll said. Yes. So like it's a sex thing, very sexual, but it's I mean, like rock and roll literally again in rolling rock and roll like literally meant sex. Originally, it already meant sex because you rock a new role in top of each like, oh, for ROY. Yeah, you're getting the baby actually.
