Sesame Place Removes All Traces of Character From Park

"Attractions and restaurants attributed to rosita, the rosita character, I have reportedly been closed since the incident. Staff told the daily mail dot com that the Muppet has been canceled following the racial or racism allegations. A family, you know, it's just like kind of like a synopsis, the family, one of the $25 million lawsuit and claimed 25 to 30 more families have come forward. Rosita, a bilingual Sesame Street character, is slowly being erased from a theme park in Philly. Isn't that weird? I mean, just this imagine this, the stupidity of it. I guess I just really want to know who was in the suit. Let's see how stupid this is.

We Have Fallen Into a Have It Your Way Society

"Am I going crazy, y'all? Oh, I'm just keeping it too real. This whole fat shaming thing. If anybody that's under the sound of my voice can snap your finger and be fit, what you do it or what you're not doing. When I say fit being the shape that in your mind, you want to be. Yes, you would. I do it myself. I love to snap my finger and I had to go to that gym. But it's okay to say, I don't think people should be mean to other people about their bodies. It's on them. But don't try to force lies on us to make you feel better. I will never in my life because I'm overweight. I weigh like two 60 something. And I'm normally like two 20. Now when people look at me, I don't look fat or nothing, but you know, I'm over the weight that I would like to be. Now, I'm not going to sit here and say, there's a new wave. There's a new fad. Ladies and gentlemen, you don't have to be fit, you can be overweight like me. You could be way above the way that you want to be. It's okay. You don't have to go to the gym. You don't have to be disciplined. Why would you be disciplined? God made you this way. I should get off the radio if I'm winning a lie about that. It's okay to say, hey, I'm at this point right now, and I want to improve and get better. It's totally fine. When I first started this show, me, me, reading these ads, sucked. I think I could have been worse, but I improved. It's not like you can sit there and say, well, you know, I'm not good at something so what? I'm not good at it. Then that's the way God made me. No God gave you the ability to be the best version of yourself. That's what you should strive to do. If there's some places where you're not good at, get better at it. There are some fears that you have overcome your fears. I get sick of a society where you see women who are overweight, and it's mostly women they don't even care. Men will get slaughtered. But women who are overweight, all they have a struggle with is that they struggle with consistency. And some of these women may feel like they're too far gone. And it's hard to imagine losing the weight that they really want to lose. So instead of challenging people and teaching them to become a better version of themselves, you say, quit doing what you're doing, accept it the way except you the way you are.

Media Tries to Defend Uvalde Killer's Mental Health

"I didn't have to watch the video to see that. But these people are taking up for this for this dude. And saying he has mental, he's a mental crisis. I watched the body one camera footage. He is trying to kill people. He literally is shooting cops through the door. Attempted to thank God they maneuvered out of the way. He's trying to kill people. Indiscriminately shooting into people's apartment complex. And I almost I almost feel like that he may have intentionally shot at that other lady 'cause she said he intentionally shot into her house. That he saw in the hallway, he was mad at somebody start shooting in her house. You know, it's crazy. The little kids in the video, the little kids 'cause the door has this big lock on it. It's no way they can open the door if it's locked. There's no way. They would have to get breaching tools and everything else. Even the lock, even the throw is covered by metal, a metal cover. You guys probably have seen doors like this on the external major buildings. The throw is completely covered by a metal bracket and there's no way you can get to that steel door. So thank God a little kid who's brave ran up and pushed the door open and I thought they were going to shoot the kid. These cops were exceptional,

Finish the clip. And there was as many as a hundred around in the air. But those 19 men who fled immediately milled around in the hallway didn't even test the door to see if they could get in, let those children die. Why would you fight to keep a job when you failed so miserable? You should slink away and horror. And initially, you tried to take the hero rap. You tried to say that you acted bravely and everybody took up the mansion because you're giving that kind of difference. We always believe you until we see something different. I saw people on the phone. I saw one dude with a Kevlar vest on an AR-15 in sandals. All right. But the most, let's put that logic together. You saw a man with an air 15 of vest on and sandals. DL hughley, why would a man be with an air 15 invest on his sandals? Because he's probably running from his house to defend those kids. That's the definition of a sense of urgency.

"Yet. Somebody that I have been waiting to do a diss track on. It's almost like a rapper. I want to diss this person. Is DL hughley. I've been, I told the lord, I said, lord, please give me a radio show. That's big enough and syndicated. So I can tell the truth about DO hughley. I used to love DIA hughley. He was a part of the kings of comedy, I used to love him growing up. He's an incredible comedian, but this man is so woke. And he hates white people so much. That is sickening to me. And he's always talking about people like me and others like me who are black who are conservative and he's even named me because my uncle used to listen to deal he will then deal healey start talking trash about me on the radio and so my uncle told me and he said he don't mess with DL he did no more. Because DIA hughley is fake to me. And he's an example in his exemplification of the weak black men in America. That literally can not think for themselves. And everything that come out of their mouth is from the perspective of a complete victim. Now, I have talked about you to the point where I'm done even I don't even want to say the word y'all anymore. However, DL hughley decided to make comments about Yuval D and I wanted to give him an honest take on it. But he can't help but make it about race. So without further ado, let's play the deal, he could clip where he's talking about you valdi. It definitely retreated. When I saw that video from the first though, who the hell is the mayor to get more mad at the video coming out than the police officers who perpetrated being police officers on that day? Because all right, put a pause on it. So before he says this, he talks about governor Abbott. He mentions that governor Abbott came out and said the police did everything they could do and in the next day governor ever said he was disappointed that he was then told he wasn't told accurate information.

The Epidimic of Black Victimhood

"It is a epidemic in America where young black people are taught to become victims. That they're less than, not by white people, not by the system, by their own parents. And you see it reflected in every aspect of society, and it really gives black people a bad reputation. Because I want you to think about this for a minute. If I was a Fortune 500 company, and I'm a big deal, and I have a chance to hire a black person. And I look at their social media and this Black Lives Matter, I'm in it to fight for social justice and awareness and inclusion. Would I hire that person or would I hire a white person that's atypical and politics? Which one would you hire? Now, nobody's gonna know what my reasoning is, 'cause I don't have to disclose that. But I would hire a person that's not gonna cause problems in the business structure.

Sesame Place Gives Family VIP Treatment

"I want to talk about the story of the Sesame Street. I got a bunch of stuff talk about, but I want to start with the Sesame Street thing. We were talking about yesterday. So the parents of the young children pictured videoed in the Sesame Street, I don't know if it's Cal Sesame Street, is a Sesame Street parade that everybody's been talking about where it appears sesame place, where it appears that the characters walking and avoid these two black girls. In 2024, I mean, 2022 is no way in the world that you can believe that that would happen without any type of punishment. It is fair to believe that obviously something else happened. I made a video about it on my YouTube channel pointing at the fact that it appears that the sesame place organization or whatever that event they apologize to the family, it appears that it was a protocol thing where the actor that's in the costume costume did not either see the kids or they were outside of protocol where he can't pick him up. He can't do certain things with him any wave them off. For the people that are watching you can see a picture in the video that he said no no no to another kid off camera or an adult off camera and then he was walking by and saying no, no, the kids in front of him were too black kids and then the camera cut. If you see a video, this 8 seconds, you know it's bullcrap. Now let's go on beyond that. You would think that if this was a racist encounter, or if this was a misstep by the person playing the role of the Sesame Street character, that a parent would say, okay, y'all need to make it right because you hurt my children's feelings. But the theme park made it right the event coordinator made it right because they allowed the woman in her children to have what they would consider to be a VIP experience. Now, I don't know if sesame plays is at Disneyland or somewhere like that 'cause I'd never even heard of the thing. But I know that when I took my son to Disneyland, it was like a $1000. It was over a $1000 for us to have the VIP experience. So if some character wrong your daughters, wouldn't you want to give them the VIP experience, which was way cooler than standing on the side of the road like everybody else in high 5 in the

Walgreens Clerk Refuses to Sell Condoms to Couple, Due to His Faith

"So a couple went to Walgreens and they're doing their shopping and they wanted to go buy some birth control products. They wanted to purchase condoms. And so they bring all their stuff up to the front counter and the cashier is ringing up all their purchases and when it came time to ring up the condoms, the cashier said, oh, I can't, I can't sell these to you because it would violate my faith, would you like me to call a manager? And so the couple was horrified. They said they were appalled. And they said, yes, we want to speak to your manager. So the manager is called and the manager finishes out the transaction, and then the couple, they get on social media and they raise holy you know what. And everybody on social media wants the cashier fired. So some sort of a young kid. And I don't know what the kids religion is. But he said it was a violation of his religious beliefs to sell birth control products. Now, the question is, should this guy be fired? Walgreens has a policy, and the policy is very straightforward. As an employee of Walgreens, you do not have to do something that you would morally object to. So this young man did the right thing by calling the manager because that's the company policy. If you can't sell them the condoms, call somebody on the intercom system. I don't want please Larry. It's Larry today. I don't know what Larry's done, but Larry the white guy from the suburbs of Philly. I guess he lives in Philadelphia too. Larry, we've got a couple here on the island. They want to buy some condoms.

"I was always under the impression that I mean when the pandemic first started it was like well, we'll be out of this in a month and then and then after you know three months were like oh shit. We're in this for the Long Haul so I thought there was no way in that month. There is no way there's going to be enough change. I I was writing articles. I was writing pieces that were like see these are all the problems and in my head I was like, well, you know took us this is over in a month. It's all going to go back to normal. But then as soon as it starts sticking around like as soon as we saw that it wasn't going away anytime soon and then people started protesting and like, oh my God, there's dead. Is actually going to be changed this time. Yeah, and now, you know, I I can't. I can't imagine restaurant the restaurant industry going back like reverting back to its old model. I I mean it's obviously going to happen right away. Like as soon as the restaurants can you know, I I mean reopen at its full capacity. They're probably going to start out at a place where it's like we're going to do this the only way we know how for the time being and then we can change but over time there's you know, this is a good change everything is going to change. I don't think that restaurants the way they were I don't think they were built for built for a pandemic. Right? And and so the the way you do think there will be radical change, but the thing it's like they're kind of the thing that was weird to me is like you're hearing all of these, you know, you're seeing a lot of these protests that go against our restaurants like we demand more rights. We demand Healthcare we demand all these things and the timing for those things is impossible right? Like I mean like it's never the right time it's off. Right time to protest for that but no restaurant owner. They're all basically staring over into the abyss right like exactly exactly. I mean it was it was it was it was a Confluence of the the worst things in that could possibly happen to every single, you know facet of the restaurant industry happening all at once. So like, you know, when when people get scared they act in faith and then they lost their jobs and they're like, hey, why do I know? I don't have a job right now and they look behind them and they're restaurant owner, you know, and there's no one else to look at so long and and then on top of that, you know, there's a million think pieces about that the changes that should be happening in the restaurant industry and you you start reading those and start looking at your place of work and you're like, okay something about adding up. So what are some of those changes you've been reading about I mean, so I wrote about this basically the the reason I wrote that big piece is I I worked so just background. I worked in the restaurant industry. I I worked in I worked in it for like over ten years. I worked in Philly restaurants and some of the some of the bigger Philly restaurants off and so I wrote about it. So I have both perspectives, right? And by I saw I from from the inside you you know that this industry wasn't meant to be anything other than what it was..

"But that's cool I'll play by that. Make me let me just tell you how the rest of the world I know when I first read about your festival and other people indie artists. They were a little nervous. A bunch of trepidation about the big high powered corporate lawyer running this music festival. Yes. Oh how much of that? Did you encounter and like how you get around it or work through it? I still get that. Honestly. A number will be we met a while back in and I think I. Think People were surprised me look I I. Don't know I'm not gonNA stop knocking to try to not be myself. I am what I do to eight. I think I have a decent credibility in what I told people is just in a state of my intent and the core mission is festival and I think that that's going to ring true but I think it did take. It took a couple of years. It took. It took a couple years for people to come to the festival Nazi banners on stage. And they say well, has business model where you see your so-called Businessperson while we takin corporate dollars and we matched that with personal donations, we make sure all the ours are paid. We run a really skinny. Expense side of our business and then we had forty thousand dollars leftover that we donated using organizations in our city that even one hundred dollars is amazing. We donate forty thousand dollars so. But so the point is yeah, there's corporations involved but those corporations are not going to be front and center that if you WanNa be successful in Philly at least in the diy seen that kind of rub going to just says a outsider fan. you need to do things a certain way and I think. The way we're doing them is resonating with people. You know we get some Iras like I remember when we had. The votes if federal doughnuts are like Super Super, big music fans and I know one of the the owners everybody well said, I want to be involved. How do you want to be involved? Said how about we're going to do with this whole donut wall together music festival. All right. Cool. So I remember leading up to. Year one people were giving me the eye rolls over the Donut Wall Segali. Wall Festival Spree as pretty lame and I wouldn't have one of those. Heroes Donut Wall Festival. People get there and they're like wait donuts or free. Talking. Yeah, what are you? Should be at every festival at this. Gives we took it for granted imagine donor while now I mean no one wants. I know. I kinda rose into my question. My next question which was going to be is there any type of? Corporation that you will not allow to be a part of this or is it just like? Hey, if you guys got money will will show you in there. You know that's interesting. Question I mean I haven't crossed that yet..

But. It's hard to admit doubt. Allen's. then. Here that. He was like he was running away from himself I say. Yes, so you got here? And what was it about Philly? That you just kind of fell in love with well, you know just the openness like the fact that can be openly gay. You moved to town, so you could be very. What would know us? So I just down here in with the notion that I was going to be out. Damon in Philly and and. I lived in Manny. That was where I I long. Two years as Like. A painfully hanging out at the grape street. Paul. What are you doing out in Rhode? Island. I calendar meet. That's what he's doing. Is the fantasy for game then. Yeah I want to get back to that a little bit you calendar I think that was what Oh nine. Yeah, yeah I mean I started. Photographing guys in. A. Probably. Catch, doesn't he? Doesn't seven two thousand eight around there. It took a while because it took me a while to find twelve. Really really heterosexual men, not questioning by not curious. I wanted to be a straight as I was getting. Like issue. Drunken night playing poker I. I was asked to be in this calendar at some point. Shit Butch I've seen some shit. He wanted to talk about. Records like hot shit. I was uncomfortable with my gut at the time so I was like no way. I'm getting naked. Asked to be in the calendar drive I was we used to play Pogo O'Neill's it. Fifteen years. Okay! So so I wanted like like twelve really and. Find these guys like actually through their girlfriends of lives like they would be the ones. Which is also? A. That's kind of mostly high found. I'm pretty gregarious in I'm pretty good at talking people. It's Zang's I would maybe approach in a bag boy at whole foods. Still wanted showed. My number. Account Hey. The talent scale county. Just got naked with me. You're you're like a porn director? What are those talents got like? See guys on the street that are really talent scouts, fashion models like these creepy older guys who give their cards to gorgeous women in. Eighteen right? I I I run a modeling agency and you should seem like that's what I felt like. Because you know, I'm an older guy was lower guy and I. was you know trying to bite my good guys in their twenties, Thirties and That that's mostly I felt I. Felt like a? Recruit Person Right So, but I did slow-but-sure right I did it and know the TV show helps a little bit. The fact that I had this. TV Show for nine years. China helps because I had just google name just Google me. And actually. Just. Go ahead and go on Google. You'll. You'll find out. Which is time. Did you. Did you ever have anybody show up and just couldn't go through with it. No the closest I got to that was I won't say his name this one guy who I knew from a friend of a friend of a friend and a really cool guy, really sexy. He, said yes, and then showed up and. was just on the phone line to grow dominant meeting meeting. Been, so she had six pack. Hainan in Drake and drainage are finished up. Drink in these. shaken his. So nervous like taking his clothes. Phone's ringing. Yeah, yeah, I'll be there. Dude with. Like. That I really. storewide run out while the. Time firms JJ travel or so. The. People back out like last minute, but never went on the shoot. Right. As you have you had any experiences with people where? They didn't know and then you told them who you really were named. They weren't accepting of your truth. What do you mean? Like you. They didn't know that you were a gay man. And then they found out, and they didn't want to be in your world anymore. Oh I I mean. I. Can claim from the beginning I was like. Yeah well. That's not true. I would say that the. Initial thing would be like. Doing this photo shoot. It's really controversial I would love to have coffee with you and sit with you. There is nudity, but it's tasteful and artful. It'll be a great thing for you know. For you to get out of your skin, you know, get out of your comfort zone and and then yeah, you're right trees. Actually you're right and then at the coffee meeting I would say. So I'M GONNA. Photograph you nude. But I'm gay and I be nude with a Oh and then that's what. Do Salutes photograph with my wife. My wife Nude I would never even do that for. I'm not certainly not gonNA do. It was like all right. But Yet What was the what was the spark for the whole thing wake? That's a that's a kind of a random. Like. Arctic project to take on. What was what was what was the thought behind it? I mean just fishy thing about it. I guess just like really I mean I. Guess it would be like. You do a calendar with twelve hot lesbians I don't know. Like? Did whenever anything to do with you. there. Naked can't stop because. It doesn't the same. Factor. But I but mostly that's what it was. The fish e part of it like how and. I guess what it was. It was partly I always wanted them to. Look uncomfortable and the photo like I. Wanted to get that real the attention. Between a gay man straight man. It's like that weird tension. Although there's no tension in the showers.

"Like a vet presence about him and I got so many. There's a humble looking out for me like I remember early on. He was telling this when I was still living affiliate. He was telling me about writing scripts at that point where. He's just different sketches. I was telling me to F- he used Celtics. That was like four minutes. He was like Yo. You should Download US like like. You should download this APP. So I'm like so I look it up. I'm next time I'll look it up and like fifteen dollars some. I go expensive in Iran. This by like he just he was here and gave me a twenty. Wow I really wanted to spend on something else like micr like he believe me like he invested in the measles. I had I do. Yeah he was he was Kinda got. Anybody listening. Doesn't know Chris. Cotton is philly comic who passed recently I didn't know a person but as you can see had impact a lot of people so check out his stomach as his funeral. It was just like over the great center. It was funny because I'm like all the comics spoke to all these great stories and then on the owner of the Raven Lounge he went up and spoke. It was like it. Seemed like you were just rambling. He wasn't talking into the Mike really good so like all. The comics boost gave him the light. So good so who somebody in Philly that you think is underrated. WHO's a comedian in Philly You're a big fan of that. Maybe not a lot of people have heard right now. Like coming up right now The Markets Lavar like I've been a markets. He took him to a few shows. America's We'll go coming up who you Big Fan of nationally nationally Of course the usual guys like Shapiro. Shapiro David David. Craig Yeah. His crowd workers crazy carrot top. Ah Let me see Kevin. No I like the way I I just wish he'd be more free as far as like Like we get all the family stuff right. He has so many store arrange and like he's just naturally funny person right right now. Did you guys like up anyway. So I met him well coming up. Do the houses like this. This is this is more like it was like kind of like a it was like a mom and pop comedy club whereas you really start from open mic level and work your way up. Tahir Liner Soda Person That got me started on to Ray was actually curves mentor to raise the one that introduced cub the Keith Robinson So I just want being around to and then Guy Spain court in spank is is he. It features like you on on the road. So spank was here. Lining their helium. This is two thousand fourteen. So every every time it was a like a hill honor icon a new. I would hang go at their shows to try to gus bites. I just to get that five a minute so I hung out the whole weekend. He was at helium. The do guest spots on every show ended up putting me up and I did good on everyone and We just stayed in touch which one there may be spanked him. Like you sent me one of your tapes. I want to see if I could get you. On a showcase showcase was a week later. I'd get an email like hey anthony. I'm a produce comedy central. Be Putting together show for Kevin Hart and we want you to be on it like literally how to have jumped out at you see holiday I was like I can't believe you won't be like Oh. Let me for my people but it was like even and I still like. They said they wanted me on the show but like things still weren't certain like it was like okay. We're interested so as the things going on like some watching like heaven spanked their instagram. And like they're still on their tour so I hit Oh spank like you. Am Emma definitely on your show. He was like they said. They like your tape I'M GONNA hit them up to see like if things are food for sure so on a Wednesday get a call like the comedy Central People WanNa Conference call like Hey Anthony you're definitely on the show We're GonNa need these things from you. So it was like by their Friday. I had to email them on a copy. Happy in my set that I was going to do and then we were taping that Monday and I couldn't get any stage time that week because I'm telling people I'm doing a show. Kevin hurt but nobody at the club. Believe me off right after I quit bouncing right so I came name the fully desk Sunday. I did the open Mike at Fergus but this was on. Uh April taped on April and Sunday actually happened the B. Wrestlemanias like an like a bunch of the philly com share like huge wrestling with a total right so it was like no comics nokomis Willie only at the open Mike That was a light crow and I just went up and just like I started trying to do my side but nobody was really into it anyway so like I just bombed right so it was. I was bombing with the material. I was supposed to take the next day so I was like man. I'm GonNa just do whatever you're not listening anyway. And so yeah it was like all the only stays on my gut before attempt to show was me bomb and I mean when the actually taping that was amazing. Yeah that was great. Yeah you're gonNA came out better and he's been he's been supportive and yeah yeah. He looked he looked a lot. It's like good. What's on the horizon? What is the goal? What is the goal for for anything more? What is the The dream obviously living. But what is the finish line if you would say so. Both so my goal for this year. I'm about to start turning these colleges and like I'm really going to tighten up my hour. Then I wanNA shoot my our sometime in the next year. Okay and then. I just WanNa from term with these colleges I wanNA build up. I'm building on my FA- my family's with these With the college students. I'm because they're the ones that the main ones the only social media so I want to push you over. The short end on their first impression of what comedy is over the colleges. Then move onto the comedy clubs then move onto theaters and then work my way up to where I'm doing arenas so you're talking about social media. I know I manage and help musical acts so it's so important if I reach out to an agent or a lawyer. The first thing they'll say is how many instagram followers. I have to have any user. Youtube Shit has so. It's the same in the communist effort. Talk about the numbers. That's how it is like the first few meetings I have with. MTV that same situation where it was like Ah To this one. I was still living having a fully. I took a trip up there to have a meeting with them and that was the first thing they asked me like. You're funny but you really don't have a strong Internet presence. That's right so it makes you respect the old school in our music and our guys and the agents and TV people back in the day because they had to trust their instincts and this is an easy job now like if you have one hundred thousand followers than people know is not easy but does the thing to know what the the job on the other side is the age the corporate world who to invest in. They need instincts anywhere. So but that's the thing too they pick these people with the the followers but it doesn't translate views because there's like they throw these people in these movies. TV shows thinking like okay. They got a bunch of all their fathers are gonNA watch like no their followers. He would've just ordering phones all day. They don't want the kids that don't watch watch. TV that don't really spend mind tickets right. Yeah so whereas like a true stand up comedian a true stand up comedian there has one million followers. They're doing arenas versus Internet comic. That broke into stand up. They're just doing comedy club venues. Because does this only a small manor them actually spend money. y'All see Youtube. People who have twenty million dollars. I'll play like the the T.. La here right right. Jose two thousand. But they're not selling dividend different energy. You're not building that like real real famous. The cult of you know I don't like anybody out there is like oh I'll watch him for seven seconds but not for our.

"Inside yeah I mean it's part of the other part is this and I say this when I talked journalism classes you know journalism it's pure sense as a search for the truth reality is a reporter gathers a lot of facts and at a certain point you've got an editor saying when are you going to write that story so you're right the story based on the fact you have today understanding that tomorrow there may be three different pieces of information that skewered changed that story you know you you're not you don't know the absolute truth never do you search for but yeah so that's there is there a difference you feel when you're reporting the story as opposed to just writing for yourself as their defense energy there's a big difference between reporting for the newspaper I'm writing a book when I book it's subjective not object so when I'm writing a book and Ronnie privileged the principal character the book is going to come from his point of view and that's what I'm told the story from now you don't like Ronnie you're not GonNa like the book and I don't know all the answers but this is what he said this is what he testified under oath this is what the government used to make there cases here's who he is and go take it or leave it yeah Halloween the thirty year anniversary of the infamous shooting Dante and Luigi that was officially unsolved corrode I'm guessing you probably have you your own sort of I mean there's been there's been all kinds of documents there's informant debriefings there's enforcement people would you shooting Nikki scarf juniors is having clemson spaghetti with two other guys and a guy carrying a trick or treat one of them Jerry blevins was Jerry was at different you okay so the guy's carrying the trick or treat bag wearing a mask walks in walks up to the table pulls out a I think a Mac nine gun and opens fire on scarf junior hits them six times leaves the restaurant drops the gun and disappears and eh scarf or junior survives the hit amazing ru all yeah in retrospect and I remember talking to some cops right after this happened a few days before that a law enforcement guy the shot he was wearing a vest bulletproof vest and a bullet went under his arm and killed him and they said and here's scarf or sitting at a table take six bullets any walks away gust walked out at a hospital so everything's perspective but anyway the consensus has always been a jewelry moline was shooter that might informants told the feds that and and and law enforcement believes that nobody's ever been charged with that shooting Joe's never been charged there's a there's a tape in which scarf all juniors talking to his father scarf senior in prison in which they basically say it was me that did it in in code but it was really anyway and and scarf or senior says to his son you should take that guy dinner meaning do to him what he Ryan Right Michelle but then but then I talked to joey about this several years later it was always amazing Joey said it could've been me because I was on probation at that time I wasn't allowed out after seven they do I mean but he's a Mesa classic what was what was he like used bobby more for my generation he's the most Popular Boston Philly Joe Fisher Philadelphia mob Joe I would sit down either have a drink with him I have lunch with them and they come away realizing he didn't say anything you didn't tell me thanks very glib he's very always how's your family doing how's your he had two daughters I have two doors how's your daughter's doing the very personable guy talked about sports very well red talked about all government screw ups knew about buddy would never really get into anything and I'm in the classic Joey Line and Dave Schratt wiser from Fox twenty nine got this on film was Brad now the photographer they knew joey very well they were reporting the same time I was ah during their Simpson and after the dot Dan Luigi shooting from prison Nikki scarf oh senior supposedly put a five hundred thousand dollar contract out on always life wanted somebody to kill Joey and Schratt and Brad now driving around South Philly they spot joey get.

that's fine Branka Andrew Blank Okay we've got Angie Branka owner and chef of saute compared announced that right yep you did all right he's on my name is for Turkey so welcome to the show we opened the restaurant along with husband John what three years ago three and a half years ago yeah two thousand sixteen okay that was a pretty big jump for you you had started in the corporate world and Kinda came into the restaurant Biz with not much restaurant experiences yeah that's exactly right my entire Korea wasn't a carpet wool Jitsu in and I worked for IBM for quite a while a climb up the corporate ladder went all the way up to the corporate data discovered know what I don't quite fit in here decided the restaurant is probably fit in the best and I totally enjoyed it so decided to open a restaurant seems crazy everyone told told me that I lost my mind is going through a crisis or something like that but did you have any restaurant experience I know you're crazy paid off though well I so the thing though as I did know how to cook I didn't know how to cook the cuisine that I grew up with very well sure but lots of people know how to cook looking in running a restaurant or two very different things Yeah I knew exactly what I was getting into I knew to kind of work that's required to run a restaurant I have family members in Malaysia who have run a restaurant street food cards back home and I was a kid ours always helping some of my family members who ran restaurants streets apart and and I under then what kind of work is like so you know the only difference that I had to learn here not so much of the weather running restaurant is this you know the the health poets here and what the Hell Co two have department koets Iraq crecy yeah that pot two and licensing and stuff like that and was good at out I pretty much know how to make the food run the food and how to operate The restaurant which the good thing though about the restaurant that I did come far it is a prettier restaurants if you come in you notice that the service is as if you travel halfway around the world because that's the only service I knew the food is just like you have traveled to Malaysia because that's the only knew how to cook so I wasn't trying to change anything I wasn't trying to adapt to what I think Americans one I just did what I knew and I think that's why I was able to succeed in what I did because there's a restaurant where I came from not what I think Dat America's one I think that's what made it successful is that a tough is that a tough decision though because obviously you're you have to cater to a customer most of your customers are going to be Americans and we're in Philadelphia where people have very strong opinions about things were you at all scared that Oh they might want an American version of Malaysian Food Oh yeah John talked so much about what we might things and and the challenges we might have we had all those challenges we had refers to come par in Malaysia south you know when someone artist Tame the menus will will does in the menus will will be caper six and and we didn't realize that Malaysia most people would be expected to order sticks by the dozen to eat because that's present at the center of the meal when you go to a place that's what you really want eight is a lot of Satay I brought out yesterday twenty thirty six person but when we first opened the doors media realized that that culture doesn't translate here and and other people coming in to order one stick to share with between two people you know a couple and and what will be binding half a stick and sharing a half of the etiquette somebody listening and they don't know what is for to explain it to us Yep sure yeah Satay as marinated Meat I need smaller pieces of me that's really well marinated and spice up sometimes Spicer Chagrin as spices salt and he's always brought on a coconut sharp in Malaysia and and the reason we grew it on coconut shot Choco maybe because it's a natural few that we have in Malaysia but he's also a smokeless chocolate the aroma of Saturday is the whole experience of waiting for your meal as well the Aromas almost like spice incense that enveloping the the restroom on and and also the skewers skuas do not do not have a smokiness to it because we don't use American Woods doesn't have that smoking us in Schaub chocolate enhances the smoke and aroma of spices so that's what Satay is is always easier with peanut sauce and alpina sauces made from scratch edge it's not peanut butter is not a pays is actually kind of like a gravy that you would put on top of Saturday and how we eat satay hard time finding coconut charcoal here the only ones in the US cooking on cooking chocolate imported every year you bring it in from NFS Few batches were from Malaysia. Sometimes we get stuff from India but yeah we it's hard to sausage is so now in the restaurant of F I R right and then how many skewers do I get too many sticks to I get now we found on by five six ten stakes just to just to get the message across you know minimum finds thanks for president with the reasonable way of enjoying satay and not half a state for me you're out of business real fast sharing one st yeah but it was a quick you know we learned a lot of lessons because it was for me it was about how how translate my culture here and it's something that I was not aware of let me first opened our doors because there are a lot of cultural differences is that I took for granted and I just assumed that people would eat the same way I would if I serve this kind of food and I realized that no I mean it's not many people understand how to eat this kind of food the way I would just assume for example Rendong and rice and and we still rise of Lao Lao meat dishes like curries down and vegetable dishes and in Malaysia where we OUGHTA rice plate it is our order ice skate we don't share our rights pates right so everyone orders arise plate for themselves and the Lao which is the protein and vegetables is always charitable dishes we always have to admit the table so we just take a spoonful of that an eat we've made a rice but what I notice you had America without any one explaining to them the rice would be mid off the table and everyone has their own pay rent down off the culture so site then you get a little ruler sound robbing people on the doing things wrong yeah but this is this is the things that I never knew before and it's a cultural difference in and for us to gradually over the last three years trying to explain to customers this we creating a manual for them suggesting flipping suggesting a manual which is true it'd way would approached his food eventually that those you know those kind of where it spread and and customers will bring new friends and they were about the way of eating at a restaurant and over time it has changed but it was challenging so having to sort of is you're sorta tell a story as much as it is to serve the Food I mean you're obviously he obviously had to let people know that this is you just you know people when they think of that region I think probably think more.

Just that's one thing that you know, when we were first friends like this guy is he and I are going to be thickest thieves. I could tell a good, dude. He's larry's. But then the music CD CD collection. We stopped hanging out as much after that. We did tell us a little bit about why that is that you like what you like like what what went up like parents music tastes. And I'm assuming Oni further. I'm going to say that some I've Johnny listed the stuff you like, it's not all negative. I will say this. Thank you for the all not bad all bed praise. I feel for a while.

But I'm not going to blast gym glass was great. All right. There's one we actually this is the truth might my wife is a huge gin blossoms fan. She loved them in middle school. So I took her almost as a joke to see them at the Chester. Casino. The Harris, Dan, Chester was literally I wanna say it was a glorified conference room. It was a conference, right. Glorified. It was there was a stage. And then it was thirty feet of nothing. So they didn't give him like a a concert venue in Harris. They gave him a conference felt like a conference room, and they there there was the stage. And then all around the stage was thirty feet of nothingness, and then just those conference room stackable chairs where everybody sat the gin blossoms. God bless their little hearts came out. They play a song or two and everybody just sitting there. And it was the most awkward show. I haven't been to my leg. But then the guy's the lead singer, Robin, something, I think he he was like this isn't going to work you guys need to get up, and you need to dance, and we're gonna have fun, and they put on one of the most fun shows a lot of it was one of the most fun of ever been to. And they were funny. They were they knew where they were like they self aware. That's always Dave like ten hits that we all know, which is crazy Ling is going to gin blossoms dogs.

No I ever phone her, and we are doing Larry lavon who used to live here in Philly went to Penn for a few years and eventually ran a rather large cocaine. Straight to the point. And we're gonna talk to him a little bit about that a little bit about what life was like a pen back then and we're gonna talk about what is lifelike today. So a lot to cover. Larry welcome to the show. Thank you. Good to hear from you guys. Do you miss de miss Philadelphia on a lot? I came back for a wet and Mike frankly, bottles Bartos daughter, Billy got married. I think it was about two years ago. I was back there. So I was days. Yeah. Yeah. Whole lot. What was the last time? You've been here before that. You don't believe it or not to the whole federal prison system. We drove through one. I think I was coming back for a peel. Here was in that must've been oh long longtime ago, I'm talking twenty twenty twenty plus years ago. And of course, you don't get to see a whole lot one of those rides. Right. Are you from Philly sound like you're from Boston or something? Nice. Grew up in north east, Massachusetts, real close. And it's funny. I don't lose that access much as most other people. I've never I went through Phillips Exeter. One of my first tasks and chemistry teacher passback exam and said sewing here spells like, he talks. Formula tonight. So formula with our in the end of it. It was just fun. Right. So you actually strangely enough. Your second guessed who didn't graduate high school in still went depends. Victor fear Rillo rights for Philly MAG actually, same same situation ended up going to Penn. So you go there we're talking what early nineteen seventies, right? Right. Graduating class would have been seventy seventy four seventy three I finished exit. Okay, roughly. Okay. So you go into pan, and you go into the freshman you start making friends, and that's when you kind of I guess found out more about sort of the way drugs, and so forth was at on a college campus. Well, what we're parties like at ten back then different dorms within their would hold caters or whatnot. So I got to know people very quickly. So it was a fun atmosphere. There was a lot of acid all types of pills and things like that available spe- back in those days. I mean, people are driving around with the fall of back, then it was mostly Mexican plot. The bring people people would pay you five dollars an hour to like put out sheet, the blotter acid and stuff. It's just was so free and open. It's just really hard to believe how different things were better. As you were you you joined the frat. And is that weird always goes wrong? Is that where the dealing started? Or was that the parties where the dealing started? It was. So what happens is when you join a fraternity and at the time getting I went off to school with like twenty bucks by clock at Ryan working library, and I'm working as a. As a lifeguard in the gym. And so when they stopped plays you start to meet people in this one particular fraternity PHI, delta Theta was pledging me, Mike, some others. And they just seemed like a good group of guys, and you could live in these paternity spec in extremely cheap. I mean, literally, I think it was four hundred dollars for a semester for you rent? Where was the where was the frat house thirty seven and locus every fraternity in those days had someone who dealt with f attorney had solvent. I'm not going to be very astute. Very particular. He believed in getting a lot of things in kinda split enough with the fraternity members, they're not really making anybody just doing it. So he gets his little stash I quickly meet his contacts. I member we went home to his house one solid in western PA. He came in on this plan for Appalachians residents to be and I handed him by five hundred dollars. I said, you know, I made this off your buddy last week. And he was just astonished and they went to make money doing this. He just thought it would either be we. Right. And we just got carried away. I mean, one time I remember my fraternity members they kind of had intervention. They can't even talk to me and said, Larry we go down to the the pass on the way the class if and people are stopped us and asked what this Larry have now Bill. So I had to fire back, wait a minute. What do you had been? You. Don't even have stuff you hold it for me in your refrigerator or freezer. When's the last time any you pay for any drugs, you know, Orleans as the yellow so it was just really funny. The whole thing about that. I've moved out after that. That was after the guy who connected, the the to all this you won't name. It's not Donald Trump. Right. Depend pen. I wish it was. I definitely would named him.
