Listen to my episode about the mona lisa for more about this story but basically he was accused by police officer in paris who just didn't like modern artists and assume that only a modern artists who hated classical art could have stolen it. He was often photographed wearing a black and white striped shirt. That shirt was known as a britain striped shirt and was the uniform of the french seamen in brittany. It had exactly twenty one stripes which represented the twenty one victories of napoleon coco. Chanel brought back in nineteen seventeen and that was one. Picasso started wearing it in his later. Life rumors floated around that he would often pay for his meals by just signing his name or doing a quick drying he wants refuse to do so saying quote. I'm buying a meal not the whole restaurant unquote in another anecdote. One of his fans in paris asked him to draw doodle on a piece of paper picasso then said that will be thirty thousand dollars what the fan replied then only took five seconds. Not picasso said that took a lifetime. Picasso was famous for being a ladies man technically. He was only married twice but he had many affairs and mistresses. One of his. Most famous affairs was with marie. Therese walter in nineteen twenty seven when he was forty five you notice on the street and approached her and said quote miss. You have an interesting face. I would like to do your portrait. I m picasso on boat which you have to admit is a great pickup line. She was only seventeen. And i never heard of him but they ended up spending years together and actually had a child. Three of picasso's children are still alive as is one of his ex wives. Francois gilo is still around at the age of ninety nine and painting inter studio in new york city. Perhaps his most famous work is gernika.

Maria de las raimondo. Cipriano dias antigua trinidad ruis e picasso. Picasso is actually an italian name that comes from his mother early in his career. He was playing around with different names. He tried qasr and picasso which of his mother's and father's name avoided his father's surname of we just because it was too common in spain. He didn't think pablo breweries would stand out. He also may have been superstitious. His was a failed painter and he didn't want to use the same name he did for his work. He explained the decision to use the name. To hungarian artist george brasi quote. Picasso was stranger more resonant than ruis. You know what appealed to me about that name well. It was undoubtedly the double s which is fairly unusual in spain. Picasso is of italian origin as you know and the named person bears or adopts has importance. Can you imagine me calling myself ruis. Pablo ruiz giggle zeh ruis or one nipple. Men gave ruis end quote. Well he had a point so the artist we call. Picasso was born on october twenty fifth eighteen eighty one in malaga in his birth was difficult in the midwife who delivered him actually thought he was stillborn as mentioned before his father was a failed painter. Who mostly earned money teaching and serving as a curator for museum. He did excel in teaching art in so far as one of his pupils was his son. Picasso was taking lessons with his father at the age of seven and by the age of nine he had completed his first painting called les picador. It is a painting of a man riding a horse and a bull fight to be fair. It does not look at all like something a nine year old would create. Compare this what most kids have opened the refrigerator.

The testing usually took a month and was for students much older than he was. Because finish the test in a week and was admitted. At sixteen he was sent to spain's top college madrid's.

So did he get kicked out of no terrier now with the so I think all of the older generation of Marines look at that as just a a violation of the code of conduct right? He's supposed to serve his names out there and everything they found it. So I'm sure he's going to face discipline I. Don't know if he'll be dishonorably different than military like you can't you can't you know. Especially, if you rise of Jewish people serving under you. Can, it's not part of the that's just not part of the deal but the other thing is like again because it really gonNA. Hurt him that much in the modern now, he's if he's got two million tiktok for.

You know questionably racist Shit and pulled it and try to use against them. Now I thought. But now if you're putting it on Tiktok, it's like I have no religion you're in the middle of their military guide, their codes in the military. That's those are the rules about saying kick off TIKTOK. But he knows the deal. Just health to a different standard. Yeah. That's I mean that's some regular idiot fine again, it's also so fucking funny like maybe being purposely on funnier and I don't even know now it's it's. Not. It's it's supposed to Japanese anime because he's making Hokey Montross. That's A big. Push to his laugh is supposed to get a laugh. Funny because it's a wacky noise, I'm old I. Got I. Understand I don't understand. Where to hold sitting around pulling but that's not funny at least. Not Number. Though but that's just not that is not funny. There are people who are funny I suppose he's not one of them, right? I guess I can't pull up comedian you just got busted to the. Fifteen people came forward. Women came forward against them.

Much it was vodka trump maybe even more now that's not true. Okay. She's F. Chuck Schumer would spend ten million salary fairly anonymous Repo Nancy Pelosi is high profile I'm saying you gotTa match the profile. So I would say vodka trump's more famous as famous as Nancy Pelosi right in American politics or whatever just picture that or the first lady. Well Yeah. But I mean I think Steve Say.

What's her face Nikki Haley would not be as big a deal, right? If someone who is currently in elected official with a vote over legislation sure. They would see the ability to and by the way. If they were finger-wagging like Nancy Pelosi was I'd be great with you. You deserve it right That your. But even if you hear the way, the person, the media, the report asks her the question. Do you have that sound because she says her she's like I have to ask this I have to know I think. She she says, I really have to ask questions. We'll know your job. That's please. Forgive me I mean she should. Be Resigning over this. It's fucking crazy. And it is again tonight harassing answer if you're willing to go into salons, that's why not just let other people. Because they want to keep everything closed until elections over I. Mean. That's that's just the truth. That isn't it. I saw Dave re tweet this morning another place in Boston closed down to see his tweet. Yeah. We're closed down shit. When does this end was the poor house?

Turkey-Greece tensions escalate over Turkish Med drilling
"It is one of the Great Geopolitical Grudge matches Greece verses Turkey a venomous and heartfelt hostility long waged over everything from the most profound controversies of history and geography to what the correct name is. Four coffey served in small cups with lots of teeth itching sludge at the bottom and appears to be kicking off again. At issue, this time out is a disagreement over which of the resources buried in the Mediterranean Sea bid belong to whom the picture is very far from straightforward. Indeed, a diagram of the overlapping claims looks like the results of a drunk with an extra sketch trying to draw Picasso's Guernica from memory while blindfolded. But I simple if not simplistic version goes like this in recent years, immense natural gas reserves have been discovered or suspected in the vicinity of Cyprus.

Artist Bruce Sulzberg on painting Rafael Nadal
"Welcome to the tennis dot. Com Pot guest. I'm one of your host. Nina Pantic joined in this episode by my co host. Irena Falconi! Hey, guys! How's it going? And we have a very interesting episode of everyone today we are with the owner artists of cells media. Fine Arts Bruce Cells Bruce Welcome thank you, thank you so much for having me. Bruce? Do you have a very interesting story? I don't think a lot of people know it has to do with Ross doll. You don't usually have artists on our show, so that's why this is very unique and special you wanNA. Tell everyone story when it comes to tennis. Even if you're not a player or coach or tournament organizer, so let's start with you know where you are in the world during this quarantine and how your life is going these days, it's been very interesting. Interesting just like I would say probably ninety nine point. Nine percent of the world is trying to figure out what the hell you're. GonNa do during his time. you know the one fortunate part about it as being an artist, I've been locked in the studio painting new paintings and working with different ideas and working with RAF and his team Carlos Costa to figure out new and inventive ways to drive in bill business and do things that we are currently not used to doing. So it's been. It's been a wild interesting two months of figuring that out. What's your interest level tenants? Do you play? How did you get into this? US Fascinating I'm actually one of those weird concoctions of I'm an artist athletes so I was a big time athlete. As a kid played eight years of Baseball's all-star in baseball play basketball. I was all star in basketball. Basketball led me. Tennis I was a basketball player. Freshmen in highschool and kind of got into. An argument with my coach basically just decided to leave basketball. And I picked up a tennis racket and I had just. It was a natural thing for me to do. And before I knew I, had a professional coach, and my coach was played played on the tour and played John McEnroe. He saw me play and before I knew I was training with some of the best players in northern, California. And so I played high school career. played college and I still train. I still training a tribe while afford the pandemic I was out there every week. just started getting back out there about a week ago when they released the courts, but tennis is definitely in. My jeans had so much, so that my son plays college tennis. I'm actually had a scholarship to Chapman University as I used to play and made teams freshman, and he's also coach now, too, so and even though he still in college, but yes, definitely in my blood and strange enough. Raw Molly the owner of art encounter. That is my distributor. It turns out the way that we got this deal with him. Was He was tennis player in his whole family's sex players, and when he saw the original painting that I did have all sprouted in hadn't seen them in years we. She just freaked out. Saying Oh my God. This is unbelievable what I told him. I have five hundred signed by the dog himself. Personally and myself and we did a whole thing back in the day. When we have this painting, he's like. Nope, that's it. We're going to do something, so it's been a very unique tennis story all the way around. I can honestly say I think it's been a while that I've actually heard someone say that. They're both an athlete an artist. When was When was the moment where you're figured out like? Wow, I actually have a knack for this whole painting thing. That was easier. I I was asking rg by the time. I was five six seven years old. My parents had me in special school. Special Art schools and You know it was something that they noticed when I was one years old that I can draw and I'd actually kept first painting I drawing than I ever did when I was one and They just knew my dad was artist. He never followed that trade. Actually went into corporate business, but my dad is very artistic used to do paintings. So I kind of had that gene in me. And I just knew at a very early age. That was what I was going to do my life. We hear so much about young athletes figuring out their skill set at a young young age at like three, four five, and to see that art is very similar as interesting for those who don't know the story Bruce is the owner of Salzburg Media Fine Arts, a broad range of professional sports team three. Of National. International athletes he got three D work of Rafa. Nadal for those are not watching this on video. It's behind him, but it's also going to be a link in our episode information. He's also got artwork of Muhammad. Ali Michael Jordan Prince. Fielder Dirk Nowitzki. Irk Nowitzki I'm not a basketball person. I'm sorry. Most importantly. It's the tennis painting that we're really here to talk about, and it's Three D. art, so I want to start with what is three art. What's the process for making an artwork like this before we get into the Roth story? This was very unique idea. That I came up with lean back in nineteen, ninety five, I was doing my very first art show at the New York our next on back in those days that was the largest art show in the world. Everything was painter of any place anywhere was there exhibiting in was at the Jacob Javits in New York City, so as massive and I back then you the jury to get in so jury to get an shared a booth with another artist, and when I was there, all brought was abstract paintings on canvas, because that's what I was painting at the Time Big Love Klee Miro. Picasso, that was kind of backroom basically, and we've been in the show for five days and insult. Damn painting and I told. My My. Fiance at the time in my mom was there with me. I gotTa Take I. Just need to go walk the show and I said. You know if I'm going to do anything in my life I've got to figure out how to do something that no one has ever done and for some reason and it's time. My Dad owned art gallery. Very very successful one back in San Francisco. East Bay and I just something popped in my head. work on glass. Just a glass on the second I got home I started Phil around layers of plexiglas and low and behold. That's how it was born I. Just we just figured out how to frame it how to do the whole thing in. One, doing where usually as an artist you paying on one level is a canvas most most of the time. You're just doing everything on that level of what I wanted to do with cigarette how to take a look at an image of a painting in break it up and put different parts of each of painting on glass, and then use spicer's to separate them, so there's space in between each layer. You get that natural three d look with no gimmicks, no anything no lighting. It's all based on different layers and different perspectives, so that's how it was born and. The risk on history.
Helping Others During Lockdown
"Save welcome to mentally oils. Thank you thank you for having me event. Thanks for coming on. So you're wanted with the Samaritans held on if you've been working with them actually not long about two years. I started doing it when I start work and I'd worked in a very busy high pressure job. That really left no room for anything else and when I stopped doing it uh suddenly thought I really would like to investigate Samaritans And it was thought that just came out of a clear. Blue skied at know. Why but it did I discovered that was a branch quite near me and I went to the information evening. I was really impressed with what I saw. And Went straight into the training and at all it all the way through. I was thinking if I feel this is quite right. You know just stop. It's fine but I never once felt it wasn't quite right and I've never felt wasn't right since And I look forward to shifts at Shelly. I find them really interesting and ment- mentally you know mentally stimulating and So I have no regrets about about volunteering tool. I think it's incredible. What am on the podcast. We always refer people to some of the end just because some people might have been Things come up if speaking about difficult issues and it's it's really fantastic to know that the Samaritans that just to listen in to have chats what sort of things that you deal with On a daily basis in terms of chatting to people oh my goodness Coolest issues are like snowflakes. There are two that are the same Era kind of broad categories that they can fall into such as `isolation loneliness mental health issues. Physical Health Issues Worries about work will finance family could be violence or abuse or things Those are very broad categories and when you to king to Kula it's completely incredible unit. You Cou- you couldn't you couldn't make up what some people have to go through And everyone everyone is different before Marson. I went to newspapers. And I thought I'd seen and heard do. But I realized when I when I became a smash in that hadn't even scratched the surface of what goes on in people's lives on a day to day basis. It's been very illuminating. Have you seen things change during the epidemic? Because I'm sure this Martin's being inundated during the stressful time interesting. We'll always inundated to be perfectly honest Shift and you take a cool and he put the phone down and immediately rings again. This just never any less up the calls. Just keep coming through and it's the same now And we have had a category added to the categories that we deal with one being covered. How the in my own experience of doing shifts through the lockdown I haven't had any cools specifically about Kovin. And when I think about it. I think that possibly mental health when it comes to mental health. It's a little bit like physical health. So people who have mentioned Cova to me have also go other issues. So it's a bit like you have underlying issues and then code and the challenges of coded Sorta the exacerbate these issues as it has done with physical health unit so the people who were suffering most with covert was the people who had underlying issues. And that for me. in the cools. I've taken has been the case. That people have got issues going on in their lives. May they may be prone to depression. They may be feeling very lonely. Anau lockdown has sort of those issues into much sharper focus. I haven't had anyone cool specifically about vid frightened of that actual many peop- law I think a lot of people to listening to the Picasso's probably relate to that because just vanik totally sort of from friends and even family who have sort of long-term half the she's Winstons if you sort of have anxiety General anxiety disorder that sort of become west because of to defensive in my case bipolar disorder in. They've been issues in terms of getting medication. Because of Kovic so it is also give lots of things become west sort of people yes I admit rishton about the unnaturally People with mental health issues and depending on how acute those mental health issues all often have quite a good comprehensive support cap package in place with the NHS and because of social distancing and because of not being able to see people face to face the many people with mental health issues. That support system has evaporated actually during lockdown. And we do. We do see people calling us because they can't any longer speak to that key worker. Will that support worker And Yeah I think I think it's. It's very difficult for people in that situation. Because the the package they used to be able to rely on. Isn't there the same thing happens a bit Christmas and Times like that holidays? People are away and doing other things. And it's a bit like that with lockdown some Jim Peas and mental health. Wise are offering example. Counseling defy laptops obsessions over the phone. I think it's probably pros and cons. Who Different people? I think some people find that helpful. Princeton's if you're depressed you might find easy to just sort of pick up the phone chat someone not she go into a surgery but then as he signed for a lot of people. If you're used to seeing the same pass in face to face it can be quite difficult to get used as a new way of talking to them or if together. I think doing what they can where they can. I think I think doing an incredible job. But it's inevitably gained be a bit patchy and maybe you'll key worker has to a self isolated is an can't be there for you I also had another cooler. He couldn't go to church for her. Church was a vital part of her of her weekly routine really was a point where she saw to touch base every week with the community that went to Sch- and suddenly that was taken from her and that was very hard So yeah it's it's people are finding that that regular support system has been taken away and therefore it leaves you feeling very on anchored and bit A little bit out of balance and I think there's no question that lockdowns been huge adjustment for all of us in. Its massive. What what has happened? In the last few weeks countries come to a standstill lutts huge. And you can't pretend it's no huge. It will have an impact on all of us to one degree or another. You know someone must have more resilient than others But you know being less. Resilient is not a sign of failure it is just the person you are and you may need some support and certainly smartened serve to support anybody. Who is struggling through this time?

That's what I speak to. Jefferson up on this special episode. So here's Jefferson Hack inside Fashion Jefferson. Hey Ron how're you man? I'm here I'm happy to be talking to you and Thanks for inviting me. To be on the coast. Yeah no it's a pleasure to talk. You know actually. I was thinking this morning back to my very first interview with you that we did. Do you remember at the Sanderson Hotel. Oh that was a long time ago. That was our first. Theo F live event and ever and we had the conversation and it was rolling out on twitter and people were sending questions from all around the world. And this this is Kinda the same except you and I can't sit together But I'm really glad to have the chance to talk to you. I mean so are you doing you know I'm well. I'm in good health My immediate family are in good health. Everyone's kind of say an isolation my staff in good health has no. I'm a director emergencies taking place amongst the employees or In days media so for that. I'm just really grateful for that I feel blessed and you know as far as what's happening in the wider world and what's happening with Corona Virus Of course you know I mean. Words cannot really describe it. I think I find words quite inadequate to describe what's going on but you know if I had to pick one word. It would be about kind of adapt adopting adopting with of the changing circumstances. That going on so I guess on a personal level. That's where I'm at but yet is going to be a lot to talk about in this Picasso. I'll let you do you know how are you? I'm good also healthy and grateful and taking some time out every day to make space for some meditation and reflection and a walk in the park. Because we're still allowed to do that here in London and you know like you. I'm just kind of grappling with what's happening. There's so many different perspectives. There's so much information which is kind of when I thrive actually making sense of information overload But I find my brain is operating at a speed and a and a intensity level that is unusually high and so I'm trying to make sure I take those moments to pause and stop and reflect It's good it's good advice. I think you know it's the same for everybody. I mean it's as much as if it's a pandemic Susan Info Democ. You know we're kind of overwhelmed with information stotts all the different opinions analysis speculations and You know I think without kind of practicing self care. It's incredibly easy to kind of get sucked into things like fierro high brings. It or doing things that are harmful just to distract ourselves from the reality of what's going on and I think that's really kind of like natural human reactions. You hit on some really important points. I think you know that some of the things that we're really trying to inspire our audience with seventeen million Digital audience across the world across platforms. And you know one of the most immediate thing is is really the kind of you know the mental health awareness and just being able to be effective as a media in being able to influence people's Moods. I mean we can change the way people feel all that moves through the stories and the tone of the stories that we published so no. That was a a an incredible kind of role that media. Compla- in in this time of crisis all type of media specifically you and I were exchanging text messages the other day about you know how companies like ours independent media companies in this kind of global industry. Like what's what's our role and I'm I'm really curious to well. Yeah I mean that was exactly it. We were like texting each other. Because it's all about reaching out out right. It's all about you know being in touch with each other as independent media as a people in the industry who are active who are part of the community of people in in in in kind of in fashion in the UK in globally and an culture. And that's all I've been doing since this has been really becoming more and more of a crisis and I think that's that's what we've got is kind of our connections and are connected and staying connected as a huge a huge part of this the way that we're going to manage to navigate this. Yeah I wanted to start there actually so you know when when did the kind of penny drop for you that this was going to become you what it's become this kind of unprecedented situation in kind of a kind of modern in the last hundred years at least maybe since the Spanish flu and what was your initial reaction of how to manage it as the leader of this this media company possible level. You know I was still a woman fashion week into Paris fashion week. I didn't finish the week up but you know things are becoming much more evidence during that week that did this was becoming incredibly serious and Some of the myths were flying around with being busted. And some clarity was coming to the kind of you know. Health impact that this was going to have an and what was going to be needed by government in order to deal with that so you know. I think it wasn't really till Mellon went into lockdown that it really kind of began to be real and hearing the stories firsthand from clients and friends in Milan about what they were going. Through in lockdown really started helping inform a lot of our thinking at days so that's really the the unprecedented we had in the only way to recognize that it was well. You know that it was that it was likely to get much more serious but you know I think these things are always understood in hindsight and in the moment you know you always think oh well you know it might be contained. There might not come here. Things might not be as bad for us you know. I think that's part of kind of that was part of that was part of my early thinking but you know we. We reacted pretty quickly. I think is a as a media company before the government were telling people to Work will not clubs. We you know we already told staff to work from a meter ready during Paris fashion week. We telling our staff that if it wasn't essential for them to come into the office that they weren't required to come to the office because we wanted to keep people say so. Yeah that's the kind of thing and then when when it really became evident you know. I think our media reaction was one of you know this is a global state of emergency now and you know we have to face a humanitarian health. Disaster that You know we can be helpful and useful in In using some of our resources in some of our media to point directly to that. And we have judy of KETCHAOUA staff. So We'd been working on managing that and managing their work from home situation and then there's a carrying consideration for our audience which we just touched on before and really when we were texting. It was all about kind of understanding with questions we were. We were kind of In discussion about was like. What is the role of of media in this new reality? Yeah what what is our purpose now and I think you know where we had puppies before. Now it's really about focusing the clarity of purpose making sure that the row we're playing in the daily life of our audience is really bringing value
Lydia Fenet, Global Director at Christie's Auction House: 'I was making a third of what everyone else was making.'
"Today. Lydia fournette joins us on skimmed from the couch. She's the global director of strategic partnerships at Christie's auction house. She's also very lead benefit auctioneer and she's raised over half a billion dollars for charities around the world. Lydia has taken the lessons. She's learned while paving her own career path and has put them in her book for you entitled the most powerful woman in the room is you. Lydia welcomed the skin from the couch. Great to be here. You have the coolest job and we're going to get into but I just want you to skim your resume for us well. My resume is actually kind of short. I've worked at Christie's auction house in New York for twenty one years. I started as an intern and had worked at the company for basically two internships and then was hired out of an internship. I ran the events department for basically ten years on and off started at the bottom grew up in about five or six years in everyone above me left and the job was mine and it was during that time that I realized that there was a side business that you could do. There called benefit auctioning. So you're not the art auction. You're you're not on the Podium Selling Monet's Picasso's essentially you are the person who is getting on stage at eleven o'clock at night at a charity auction trying to raise money for a nonprofit when no one wants to buy anything and so those were really my two jobs for a long time about ten years into my career decided to launch a new department called Strategic Partnerships for the company which I now run globally and I run the large scale benefit auctions around the world for Christie's now as well so really fun job and I earlier love it. What is something not on your linked in that we should know about you. I am a mom of three. I am a veracious runner and I love more than anything to be with people. It's my favorite thing in the world. Have you always been like that? Yes absolutely I am a natural extrovert. There's no question about it. I always think it's funny when people say so. What do you do for downtime? I call my friends and hanging out with them. I try to former for trying to find more friends. The exact opposite quota and my husband too. He loves being themselves and always trying to get in the room to talk to him. And we're very different. Let's bring you into my fold so before we explain. Actually what your job is in day to day? I just want you to tell our audience because I think you are the rare person who's really been at the same company for their career. What is your best piece of advice for how to get hired as an intern fulltime? I think being persistent and really walking into an interview as an intern and making sure that they understand that. You're going to work hard. I know that sounds like the craziest thing to say because it seems pretty obvious to me but I can tell you that. I've probably had eighty or ninety interns over my twenty years at Christie's I can tell you the fifteen who I still remember. I think that internships are such an amazing opportunity to do two things meet people in a company and is that because I shredded paper. My entire first internship at Christie's but guess what the shredder was by the elevator. So I met every single person going in and out of there and I'll introduce yourself I mean people are standing there waiting and remember. This was pre iphone so there was nothing to do. I just stand there and wait but I would stand there and just sort of. Make an off comment about something. That was happening her. You know something as easy as still shredding which people feel sorry for you. They start to talk to you. They always knew I was so they'd always come back. And then there was joke you're still shredding and like I sure am how's your day going. You know just a quick introduction and all of a sudden they remember my face and so when I see them at an event later that week or checking people in special events there was sort of that name recognition that facial recognition so. I just think an internship is the time that people don't realize you get a recommendation from someone that you're interning with in a job. That's very senior in a company in that stays with you for the rest of your life. How did you get your foot in the door? At Christie's I knew nothing about the auction world. I grew up in a small town in Louisiana. My parents were not art collectors but I did a junior semester abroad at Oxford University. While I was there I read an article about the auction world. When Princess Diana's dresses were being. Sold for charity. Yes I remember. Yeah new talks about Christie's and it talks about this auction world and honestly if you knew anything about me my whole life is created in my mind so well. This seems like the place that I should work. I mean it's glamorous people travel. You're meeting all of these people to my earlier point and so I basically started talking about how he was going to work. At Christie's I ninety nine percent of the people I knew had no idea what curtseys was. But my dad who is just such a charismatic amazing man. We were at a Christmas party of a family friend in Baton Rouge Louisiana which is not a bastion of art collecting and there was a young woman who was doing her. She just started at Christie's as an assistant to an assistant. And so my dad pulled me over and he said you've been talking about this place. This woman actually works there and this is when I think sometimes the universe really. If you're open to it helps you in your path. I said to her. Can I get the internship coordinator because I was still in college at this point and she gave me her number and so I started calling this woman and it was so late in the game? I had no idea what I was doing. I was coming from Louisiana. The wasn't so as a New York everybody knew about internships and so I basically just calling her and she kept saying the same thing which was. Ot I'm so sorry you know. The internship program is full but remember there was no caller. Id and that day so had to pick up her phone. She had no idea and every day I would call for two straight weeks and I kept thinking to myself like there has to be a way to make her understand that I have to be there so I have to figure this out and so I would kind of right through a list of questions that I could ask her. That might make her. Think a little bit differently about me and so one day I just hit the nail on the head. I asked her. Can I just ask you something before you hang up on me which you tell me why? The internship has to be closed at thirty people and she said well you know we do museum trips in the afternoon and so yeah. I mean you all of a sudden I was like well. I don't have to go on a museum. It's fine you know and and so I sort of vocalized that I said well listen. I don't have to go on a museum field trip. I could stay and I'm sure they're GONNA be interns. Who were sick and maybe I could fill in over. I mean honestly one college that point. Let's be serious and I think she was so for me to just stop calling her. She said look let me think about it and she hung up the phone and then she called me back an hour later and said I could do a modified internship and I say now that I'm pretty. I went on almost every single one of those museums. You know that's the funny thing because of course someone doesn't show up you know when I hear the story. We're both kind of like smiling at you. Love the fearlessness. A love gutsiness that you had an end poise at a very young age. She just go after this. Both of us had a similar tenacity but didn't have your extroverted part to our story. It's hard exhausting to put yourself out there like that and people come to us for advice all the time. It actually was just talking to a girl yesterday who just as out of college and was trying to get advice on how to network and I was like you have an email address a corporal where you work the big building just email people just like what. What are you say? So very literally. What do you say when you call what you say when you email? I always think the key to networking and my father has the best catch phrase that you will use for the rest of your life which networker die He truly believes networking is the only reason you exist. Charlotte. I would say that the most important thing you WanNa do when you're networking is distinguish yourself from other people immediately. So what makes you unique? Because you can google anybody sitting across the table from you. And I think that that's what people lose and the networking element that makes it really difficult for them because they're trying to play the part of somebody else the easiest way to sell us to sell yourself because when you're talking about yourself in a way that feels authentic. It doesn't feel uncomfortable. This is who you are. So you're just putting yourself out there. What you have get used to is the take it or leave it quality of that and I think that that's difficult for an extrovert or introvert. You know nobody likes for somebody to shut them down but at the same time you'll never get anything unless you put yourself out there. I want to talk about something that I think is a common thing between the media world and the art world. Which is they're highly competitive. It's hard to get that first foot in the door and if you are lucky enough to get it you're usually working a ton and not getting paid a lot and the question that we get all the time is how do they think about that first job do they take the job that they really. WanNa take that. Is You know the internship right. And it's a hard choice and wondering what advice you have for people out there who are looking to break into these industries and also have real financial restraints. Absolutely I think we all have we restraints. We live in New York City or even the the outlying areas around the city. It's incredibly expensive. And so I say to people especially about the art world. Can you live without our? Is it the kind of thing that you've literally wake up every morning in think I have to be around it? It drives me is my passion in if the answer is yes then it probably makes sense for you to be an intern or to take a job that is going to get you on that track over time and it may not pay exactly what you want so you may have to get a second job to make that happen but you have to understand that. That is a choice that you're making it that is not your passion and you just want to do it because it looks fun from the outside and this is what. I wish I had said to myself all those years ago. Go and get a job that pays you what you want. And this is something that you can evolve as a side hustle over the course of your life and then you bring those skills to the place where you interviewed as an intern. And I think that that's one of those things that can seem kind of shortsighted and especially in this day and age where people are hopping from company after one year or six months. Or whatever if you really understand the trajectory of a career. It's long so if you do the work at the beginning and you get to a place where you are making a salary to afford the life that you want you can pivot into the art world. You can pivot into the media world and you have a skill set that you're bringing that you didn't have when you were applying as an intern so you will get paid for that. So people do get paid in these companies. They may not get paid what people in startups get paid but they do get paid. Sometimes you just have to start a little bit more mid level than you would when you think that you should start as an
Talking 'Art' with Graphic Designer Adam J. Kurtz
"My name's Adam J Kurtz and ever and calls Me Adam J K and basically. I made graphic designer who became an artist and author so I started with design and now I do a lot of other things that aren't designed Matthew who attended one of your talks. He said that you said something on stage which really connected with him. That you're okay with calling yourself when referring to yourself as an artist and that used to give you an allergic reaction. Can you tell me what that was about? Yeah I mean I think I think the word artist is really scary for a lot of people Because it is so broad and because you know we're we're sort of raised to think about artists like Picasso or something you know art in a museum and so if you're not on a museum you're not an artist but it's really up to all of us to define what art is and for me. I think it is really just sort of creative expression. It's making a feeling An intangible feeling into something tangible it's communicating a feeling that you had in some way It's a response or a reflection to inexperience. Really art is so broad and almost everything is and once I understood that for myself it became really liberating. An artist is just a is the easiest word for someone who makes does a lot of different things Do you do you define that in any way or connected or tie to the idea that if you make art for someone else and somebody else is paying for it. Then that moves you into commercial artor. That's an old term but Like what graphic designers do versus somebody who just has an idea once express something and puts it onto the world? I mean I think it gets dangerous when we start assigning labels and unlike breaking them down further and further because design is interesting. Where design is really sort of halfway between art and craft or art and craft and trade But then also you said commercial art and an even fine art is commercial right because people you might do one painting but it still for sale and then there's sort of this whole like fine art complex economy however you want to describe it where are being sold or artists monographs or the way work travels through museums and is used to bring like everything is commercial like we all have to exist in capitalism. So I find like it's often helpful to not get too hung up on the labels and part of that was was accepting. That artist isn't okay. Label and not being hung up on it and nothing scared of it in. When did you become comfortable with that term to describe yourself as artists? I don't know I guess a couple years ago. Maybe because other people called me in August I and I was like all right. That's fine okay. You didn't punch him in the face when they said that. I have never punched anyone in the face. Okay I have to say for myself. I think maybe it's from my my art school or my design school background and I think one of my professors told me that. And he said something like design is when you solve somebody else's problem and art is when you solve a problem of your conception and that's how I kind of stayed in that box for a really long time and so it wasn't until I think almost two decades in my career my life of anybody had said you're an artist. I would correct them. This is my version of punching them. A face on Magnolia designer. Make things for other people and get paid to do that. An artist like be like you said Picasso and all these other people is not so much the the expression or even how much money they make selling art but the fact that they just go off on their own and they solve a problem they want to communicate a feeling with the world. That isn't other derived its self generated and I put that line pretty hard in the sand but all that changed. I guess a couple of years ago when it started making videos on the Internet. Or It's like this is my form of art. Now you might not think of it as art How I express my feelings and communicate to the world. Yeah I mean I think that is that sort of a case of a well-meaning educator Saying something to you which. I don't disagree with But then you really. You really accepted that as hard fact for a long time and sometimes sometimes that happens with advice right as we. We take advice at face value. Maybe we don't understand the nuance or the context or the specific perspective and and we let that rule us or we let that impact us maybe more than the person who said it in the first place intended and so I don't totally disagree about You know client versus personal work. I think I think there's something there And that's maybe not how I would say it but I don't I don't disagree and so when you tell me that for like two decades you let that guide your understanding of yourself that makes me that makes me. Kinda sad because you've got all the tools and you make stuff for yourself all the time You're often your own client. And so that definition kinda stops working and I almost wonder like what what else would you have made? If you just started doing anything you wanted sooner.
Is Copying a Shameless Tactic?
"I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we are going to top talk of Valla Tornado going to talk about it. We're GONNA talk about well if copying is a shameless tactics of what do we mean by this. Exactly we're talking about Copying Neil. Yes Oh in marketing marketing. Your competition is doing something or other people in your industry even if they're not your competition they're doing something to grow their traffic to go. There leads to grow their sales now. The question Shen is if you copy what they're doing. Is that a bad thing. Or is that a good thing and a prime example of this is Eric. I've done it as well many times. uh-huh but Eric. Recently I talked about one of his new features on click flow and I submitted a product top and his new feature tells you if your content is decaying in other words is you're getting less and less traffic over time and what you should do to fix it and best of all the feature is one hundred percent free correct hundred percent free so one of the comments that someone left was. Hey you're copying us. This isn't cool. Some people got website. Most people didn't really care about some people got upset. Some people said I was copying even though I submitted Eric's Url and it wasn't my company the hot air to respond those funny funny enough. Some of them even hit up people on my team being like this and they're like this isn't Neil Company in their dislike. Sure it isn't okay. Sounds but in general you know is it okay or not and before before I answer that and I would. I'd love to answer before you Eric because usually I want you to break down. What was your logic behind doing this? So we launched a feature recalled content decay for click flow and basically the way we saw was that it's a feature so wanna give credit where credit is due. There's a content marketing agency called animals and they launched a they launched it on product called revive the last couple of months ago. Now here's how I saw it my logic behind. This is what I look at facebook and facebook has. The instagram has stories. FACEBOOK has stories right. They have to get the stories feature from they got up from snap. And so when I look at this I'm like okay. This is a good feature. It's a nice little lead magnet that we can use premium to get leads to drive into our software which fundamentally is not competitive with animals at all they might use it to drive leads for their content marketing agency but we have an entire software suite with a bunch of different features the testing. I'm not even GONNA go into all features but that's why the way I explain it when one guy came in I said look they have a really good feature and where we're using it to basically generate leads obviously to toll the US news but fundamentally were not competitive at all versus when you look at like a facebook copying snap that is they are competitive and they are copying but even in that scenario Ariel My personal opinion. But I guess I'M GONNA turn it over to you to answer first and then I'll give my thoughts on it because I think you wanted to answer i. So that's my logic behind it and turn it over to you. The reason I want an answer I guess is you who got the negative press for. I got some swale even though it wasn't me but the reason on answer. I is a want to give my neutral troll viewpoint on this no matter what business. You're in someone's GonNa copy a question of when you look at all these venture backed companies people copy each other. Google isn't the only player in around you know there's being who tries to copy their features. facebook tries to copy snap. Apple will copy whoever else. This is out there like Samsung. The list goes on and on and this is just the reality of the world that we're in now in most cases in marketing. You're seeing people copy things he's like all you're doing sem Seo or paper click or hey you're doing e books Ahmadou e-books or you did one on this topic I'm GonNa do at are you. Did a conference around inbound marketing marketing ominous do my own inbound marketing conference and as I mentioned the list goes on and on no eric did was he did that. What the software feature? That's not as common but it'll become more and more common. You see the bigger companies do that and I know they weren't happy with him doing so but the reality is Eric's not going to be the first. I've done this as well. I'm not saying this is great. And everyone should do. I'm saying this is the reality of the environment wherein if your competitors are doing something that's amazing that other other people love you better start doing it too or else your users are all going to go to your competitors and events. You're going to be out of business. It sucks but it's the reality whether whether you like it or not so when you think about copying it's not about hey is it cool or not. It's the reality is consumers. Don't care about the company Buzney as much as they did before what they really care about is experienced the price are they getting all the features that they want. And if you don't provide it someone else's and if someone else's and you're not you have no choice but to add it in. Yeah I mean that's well said the last part you said about the customer experience that's ultimately what you're trying to do. You're trying to. You're trying to help your customers now. Let's take it on a much bigger scale. Let's look at Amazon now. Here's people are complaining about this right now. Amazon is using the data that they have and their copy. A lot of people they copied Alberto products are copying a ton of different products. Right now because they know what works. What doesn't work now? Would you say that shameless. Some people might say shameless. Because it's hurting them or some people you might not like. Jeff bezos Amazon. But you know what tough luck. That's what happens and same thing with when I look at this podcast. A lot of stuff that Neil Ni- share. Guess what want. Sometimes I'll mention something or neil might mention something and it actually hurts. Someone's entire business. Because we reveal the niche dot. They're in at everyone starts copying right so copying is is. What does that quote neal is that I think it's something about Picasso? Great Artists Steal and nothing goes steel. Right but I'm saying if you're going to copy do something ethically and don't try to in my scenario. I'm not really hurting anybody right and again. We're not competitive with that company. So whether you are learning from podcast and you're copying tactic modifying it for yourself. That's exactly what I'm looking at it. I'm taking the feature which is Great. I'm giving credit where credit's due revive by animals and taking it and switching at a little because I'm I'm using to drive leads for a software not for an agency which is what they are
"picasso" Discussed on The Brain Candy Podcast
"Is an offer. That's valid for a limited time to get fifteen percent off your purchase of one hundred dollars or more go to maud cloth that's Modise. DC L. O.. T. H. Dot Com and Enter Code Brain Candy at checkout lovely lovely so I I'm I think we're in agreement here. She shouldn't be in trouble for. This is clearly the mother the Bio mom. Yeah looking to have the same impulse if if I were the bio mom yeah. Mom was topless friend of my son. I'd be like Oh you need to know how old or kids are two. They they were like I remember them being in the ten range K.. That's not you know it's like a thirteen year. Old Son my God. It's like the porn every this depth so weird I signed today. I don't know I think it's I don't know. Ask Howard Stern. He's super into it. Step was set mom yet. Like Howard Stern like talk about that all the time. Yeah I don't know which part of it he's into doesn't do it for me. Stick to my my massage porn. Thanks cynically that there's anything that inspired this lady to do that in in that department. I know you think it was innocent. Yeah I think confused on the proper tired be wearing when when doing any kind of home home construction. I think that's a big mistake. They should have they should have. They should talk to the people at Home Depot about what they needed for this project checked do do you drop cloths. Yes do we need shirts. Definitely look right. I mean if you hire these people to do it. What do they wear they were like those jumps? Yes yeah they're not getting naked in your. I mean that is what we would have a problem right. Yeah I so many questions now. I need to see the setup I need it now. I feel like I'm questioning their dry. Walling Skills that's the only thing that's right. I'm working right now. I can. Somebody better check their their work okay. I'm glad we got that settled. Funny Okay so the next thing I wanted to talk to you about is did you reading the New York Times about the guy who was. I don't know why this makes me laugh because electricity. I love going with the theme of Home Repair. It was great. I'd Accident Neither Picasso's electric okay. Well he he shows up with a big box of Picasso's artwork two hundred seventeen items the estate for Picasso. He shows up and he's like. Hey I just want to get these. Like what's the word authenticated like 'cause they weren't actually signed which was peculiar and And then it inspired a decade long fight where Picasso's estate is claiming their stolen. And he's saying oh no cost of gave them to me when I was like doing lighting or whatever I believe that using because gave it to us I think a lot of art absolutely and I think it might be like an as I am. No Picasso. Don't don't get it twisted but as somebody who used to do a lot of art I've got like piles of the stuff that like I thought wasn't good enough to like put on that. See our stuff from like years ago that I did that. I just can't bring myself but I absolutely would be like we did like some brain candy giveaway. I throw some in there earn. It'd be like no problem. Take it or whatever you know do a trade. Somebody really wanted that stuff. It would be like. No No biggie. And it's probably the stuff that he didn't even even financial or like didn't like plus I also heard Picasso's Kinda Dick yes article. It said that in the article. Yeah days as said. They use that. They found that these people were guilty. They found them guilty of theft. And they will. They got a two year suspended. Sentence didn't didn't actually have to go to jail but they did have to give up all the artwork and some of the reasons that they claimed. Show that these are stolen. Is that what you said Said Picasso's kind of a decade give stuff away yeah and He definitely wouldn't have given them away without signing them and also this is what's made me realize. This was probably a theft situation. Their story kept changing. Oh that's not good. I there like He. He gave them to us then. It was like oh his wife gave them to us kind of like wait right. It was believable. If they would have just stuck with the story yeah but there was. I can't remember. Oh what's her name. WanNa say it's something with a d. but Salvador Dali his wife or the woman who was like his muse that he was with like later. I think an dollars something like that. But when Salvador Dali was like on his deathbed and she had him sign the corners of a bunch of wink. He's handed candidacies. Yeah so I don't put anything I mean I feel like that's a good question. Everybody who's involved in this and you know yeah it was kind of she. She was kind of a you know it was also a rumor that she was a demonic dominatrix. So wild lady well she gets a real storied history. Well I don't know what if I had stolen them though I wouldn't be inclined to take them to those offices How when wasn't this recently that he went or was this a long time? Yeah so it was about ten years ago ten years okay. So maybe because seventy four okay. So maybe they thought like a enough time has gone by. Maybe yeah maybe yeah and was this. This wasn't the original electricity or was it his his family member. It was the real guy and we must be. He was diagnosed with cancer and wanted to have them authenticated before he died. Like to give to his this kid you know well that seems pretty legit. I know it does oh There's Oh that sucks sums fishy it does suck I really just. I would if he didn't steal them and two they really need and what we got like. Let somebody else have some. Picasso's they're they're you're fine Picasso's state. You're doing okay. Give him it.

"Now with me to help answer the questions that you're sending us from the University of York behavioral scientists. She works on insects. Eleanor drink water. What have you been up to you telling elements yes. I'm very keen beekeeper and I made the mistake of not zipping up my the other day and and I can tell you that that that was bitterly regretted. The next day is very much a mark of pride among beekeepers but you're not appropriate beekeeper until you've at least one and flexes yeah. That's a bad thing when that happens but if you work with do occasionally gets stung how's it. How's it going the beekeeping fund. We've haven't absolutely lovely queen in one of heights at the moment. The other one's a bit more grumpy so they're a bit more of a it's true what my brother keeps. He says the same thing he said as the Queen's get older odor and also certain colonies just have a particularly aggressive behavior exactly something to do with the Queen's squirting out ramones that keeps everyone calm as the Queen Ages. She makes less all of them. Yes exactly that's that's. That's exactly it in the end the character of the Queen or you know the chemicals that Sheikh producers has a really big impact on on the behavior of all the other bees in the colony so so yeah so if you have a really nasty queen than you can swap out for really friendly Queen and some of the hive becomes a lot more friendly to work with credible. Yes some no. It was much opening unfortunately but yes definitely enough to be getting on with you so any questions you have about insects. Perhaps even bees stings beekeeping. Ask Ask Elinor. Dan Gordon's also with US dance and exercise physiologist is Anglia Ruskin University. He's also a Paralympian and it's going to world record and there was a lot of coverage in recent weeks about athletes using sports drinks and not been terribly good for their dental health. Yes about I think about ten days ago quite solarge raging study that was looking at elite athletes and they reported the dental health and elite athletes was was far far worse than the general population of Oh. The paper didn't fully attributed it to they wanted to make conclusions was they thought it was down to the con- sports drinks that are consumed which mostly these high carbohydrates looked sugar. How's your dentition during you got away with it. I think what an advocate in sports the practitioners do then just because you don't have energy to do the events no and I think in the end what they're really getting exposes has got to be greater scrutiny of the health of the teeth and the athletes when competing one of the things we have to do before we went to the Paralympics. We every athlete have dental check which sounds crazy things the limbic games actually you wouldn't think that teeth of that important but actually the worst thing you can have an. Olympic Games is fake and so one of the things that's really really being advocated. Now is that part of the Athlete Support Program Part of lifestyle management should be to actually monitor the health of the of the teeth warning people there. Is this risk they'll. They'll probably take more. Oh care about washing their mouth outs to get rid of that. I think yeah more used to math clean teeth more regularly for example as part of the training routine not so any questions about exercise exercise physiology how the body works sports and sports fitness. Danny man now next to Dan is friend. Let's see what did the wonderful. Fran is Cambridge University physicist. She is an astrophysicist cosmologists interested in how the universe at large works but you're a stand up. Comedian allows guys right. I'm GonNa do the horrible thing because then tell us a joke I won't do that going. It's going pretty well. I'm in writing a new show at the moment by kind of the philosophy of science and what we're doing when we're doing science so that has been a bit of a step back from the day to day if my research are you poking fun at it or you kind of making light of what life is a scientist and researcher is like is that I'm poking fun at but also I think a serious a serious element over and I hope people will come away knowing a bit more by you know I've been told I'm participating in the scientific typic- methods that I never really examined what that meant until now you're gonNA find out you're also saying to me just before we started about the story that came out earlier this year the first picture of a black hole or rather the first impression of of a black hole and that's going to be made into a movie rather than just a bunch started pictures. Now you're saying yeah that's right so you might remember the event. Horizon Telescope a few months ago published the first image of a black hole or more pedantically the shadow of a black hole support and then I can do a full color movie of the black hole which is going to be really incredible both in terms of what it will teach us about astrophysics in general relativity and also just just super cool you can just you'll be able to watch your black hole on youtube or you could just watch SANTELLI programs which amount to much of the same no content visible whatsoever. Thank you very much so anything to do with how the universe works and space anything that please send those questions in from be happy to consider those also with this bobby seagull who needs relief introduction. He's originally for comb -versities. Mathematician and teaches maths taught teach kismet and actually doing teddy program their movement have new going around the country looking at inventions and things going for those who made a reminder minded is the universe challenge icon the icon of icons. I'm his friend were. You're pretty you're pretty optimistic as well thank you that's very good areas and outgoing outgoing but we had a first series initially looking at a genius guy to Britain's traveling around minicar imagine like top gear meets. Qa but sort of exploring all the curious bits of Britain and the new series is called a genius guy to the age of Invention Sarah can I get back in on minicar go around the UK but this time it's quite chronological so looking from seventeen fifty thousand nine hundred and exploring Britain's discoveries and inventions in that period. Why did you pick that period because it's particularly golden period. There was some of the reason I I think it's the golden nature that period because if you look before that is sort of Britain still pre enlightenment before industrial times and then in that period of seventeen fifty nine hundred lots lots of invention discovers chemistry's discovered physics signed the word sign scientist comes into being Darwin Thompson so lots of great figures of science emerge any particularly stand out moment because there was are when you making telly programs they're always funny things that we never see on screen or or other things that are just well moments that you never thought you'd find yourself doing so so what am I stand up moments as she isn't a stand up moment for me but is a silent moment for the show so we visit the cabinet Cambridge and we get to hold one of the original cathode ray tubes at J J Thomson used. I was too much of a chicken to hold it. No I think it's like someone else's baby you can look at. I admire it but if you want to hold it no no no. I'M NOT GONNA hold the baby the big quite tempting to hold it and they go oops because the same thing sort of happened to me because because when I was in South Africa when I first went to South Africa when I was at a conference in this big American guy came up to me at the conference and he said tomorrow going to pick you up from your hotel and I'm going to take you somewhere and show you something something GonNa Change Your Life forever now. Of course you never met this guy you think I can arrange things and actually he took me to the University of the voters rand in Johannesburg where he's professor of Paleoanthropology. This is Lieber. Who's now been on this program. A number of times in this discovered not one not two but three new species of early human ancestor and he had in this wooden box the university the face the complete facial skeleton of the Taung Child which is the specimen which is the australopithecus holy type in other words all all of the Australia with specimens that we have early human ancestors maybe three million years ago so they're all compared to this one which was discovered by Raymond Dart at about one hundred years ago now and it's really fabulous. They've even got the endo cost the fossil remnant of the brain of this thing and I was holding this in my hands is three million years. Old is the only only one in existence and am I did get tempted to go whoops but Lee was very very cordiality hands undermine all the time. 'cause you think how this is just prices but I know exactly what you mean now for your home. If you guys in the studio we've got a little guess who that we run through these sorts of programs we give you a sequence of clues across the show and as the show unfolds unfolds we give you more of them and the first one. I've got here. It's it's an animal. Give you that much but can you work out. What makes this particular sound okay. That was the sound it makes any clues. you want to hear the other very fussy this lot. They won't hear it again. Okay anyone got any ideas seagull. It's not a bobby seagull. No okay more clues coming up eleanor. Let's kick off with this one view from Marianna. What which is the most intelligent insect do not base because maybe they well okay so I have been asked this before and this is always a really hard question because I am incredibly and I believe that all insects are incredibly intelligent in all sorts of different ways and we haven't even begun to scratch the surface of what insects can do it could be the case that we haven't even discovered the cleverest insect but if I was to choose one based on research about an individual it'll who's pretty clever. It might have to be the bees. I'm afraid some really cool research has shown that bees can tell apart the difference between different painting style so if you showed them a monet and Picasso you can get them to learn the differences and then be able to generalize to other paintings and also prefer. I don't know maybe that'd I'll be a follow up paper. I hope it would also they can tell the difference between people's faces and they can remember a face for two days which is incredible. There was also study that the the researchers at Queen Mary Invest of London published a couple years ago where they showed be another be rolling a ball into a goal and the be that was watching then how to get the B The ball into the into the goal and got a treat yeah it was social learning and more than that they they did a follow on from that which was even more cool so trained on one particular ball and they had other balls in the area which they blew down while they were learning but then in the in the second round they unglued the balls goals and the B. would learn the concept and then would apply it to closeable so then they would perform the same action but on a separate they weren't just learning out this ball goes in in in the hall they they could like generalize which is incredible if you think about it and what else could have favorite insect in the studio.

From wondering, I'm David Brown and this business wars daily on this Monday, June twenty fourth. Sotheby's the famed auction house just closed its biggest sale ever. It sold itself to French Isreaeli businessman Patrick, dry for three point seven billion dollars dry. He is a telecom and cable industry tycoon. He founded European cable company. I'll tease in two thousand one and has a reputation for building a global business empire through acquisitions and aggressive cost-cutting. But the Wall Street Journal has already reassured art lovers to mention Sotheby's employee's the dry. He won't bring that cutthroat strategy to his newest acquisition rather, he's buying the auction house for art's sake. The journal says and art lover himself draw. He owns works by Picasso Matisse and Chagall and. His long admired the auction company, which was founded in London in seventeen forty four at least now draw he plans to hold onto Sotheby's for the long term and help it grow the first step. He intends to take these private ending. It's thirty one year stint on the new York Stock Exchange. The idea is that going private will help Sotheby's compete with its arch-rival Christie's Christie's is a private company also owned by a French businessman, the two companies often scrap over lucrative consignment deals to sell multi million dollar artworks in collectibles to seal those deals auction houses often discount their commissions, but as a privately, held business Christie's had more latitude to shave its commissions and make big deals than Sotheby's did since Sotheby's had to report those details to shareholders that latitude makes a difference over the last year. Both Christie's and Sotheby's have done well, booed by a healthy economy. But in absolute terms, Christie's fared better than Sotheby's by more than a half of a billion dollars. Christie's is seen as the winner in the art collection duopoly in part because it has captured some gasp worthy deals in 2017 it sold a rediscovered Leonardo Davinci painting for a record price of four hundred fifty million dollars. And last year it sold the art collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller for a record price as well. Eight hundred thirty five million dollars under draw. He's ownership Sotheby's should prove to be a more aggressive rival, and that won't just be an in-person auctions, but online as well. The company intends to expand on a strategy that already started boosting its digital sales are collectors still politely raised their hands at live auctions to bid on old masters, but more and more often younger art buyers are bidding online, Sotheby's soul, two hundred twenty million dollars worth. Of art online last year up twenty four percent from twenty seventeen the Wall Street Journal reported, it's too soon to know whether taking Southeby's private, and pushing online sales will help Sotheby's surged past Christie's or not. But one thing is clear Patrick draw. He is already proved himself to be artful at growing companies now. We'll see whether he'll be successful at painting, a new future for Southeby's.

Stephen Brunt on Tiger Woods: What kind of heroes do we want?
"Hey, it's Jordan, and I've podcast for you. Commons is Canada's most popular podcast about politics last season. They tried to answer the question how corrupt is Canada this time around. They're investigating our national addiction oil the currency's featuring host Arshi man is called crude. And it's about Canada's relationship with the oil industry. The good the bad the ugly and the weird you'll find Commons wherever you get your podcasts. So go check it out. I'm going to try to tell you today's story the way all probably tell it to grandkids someday. There was this guy a golfer named tiger. He was the best golfer in the world probably ever, you could argue if you wanted to, but nobody who'd watched him play would listen to you. And if that was our story, it would be a boring one, but it's not anyway, tiger was the greatest he had it all the fame money commercials endorsements beautiful wife and adorable children. But he was also a jerk. There were a lot of stories about this. He was rude to fans who wouldn't give kids high fives or sign autographs. He had his caddy yell at people who was a notoriously bad Tipper. He was a sullen guide to play with. He was robotic with the media, and none of those things mattered because he was the greatest until he wasn't just after two on Friday morning. Thirty three year old Tiger Woods. Drove out of his house alone. His car I hit a fire hydrant then a tree police after that crash. His wife left him. It turned out he'd been cheating on her with dozens of women across the country. His sponsors dropped him. Almost as fast as she. Did Ben details of his affairs came out, and they were humiliating. I want to say to each of you simply and directly. I am deeply sorry for my irresponsible and selfish behavior. I engaged in his knee gave out and then his back and even when he felt good enough to play golf. He was bad at it. And then despite surgeries his backup worse and worse until he could barely sit down without pain. He needed a spinal fusion surgery he had it just so he would be able to play with his children in his old age. He said but afterwards he felt better. So about two years ago, he picked up a club and tried to play again, and he could and he started getting better at it on the rest. Well, we'll tell you the rest, but you probably know how this ends. Then he doubted we'd ever see it. But here it is. Turn to glory. So it's Tiger Woods. Now. Redeemed? What is it about him that compels so many of us to root for him despite his flaws? What does the way we cheer for tiger tell us, but the kind of stories that were drawn to and about the kind of heroes. We prefer. I'm jordan. He's rawlings. And this is the big story. Stephen Brent from sports net is one of our favorite guests to talk to you. Whenever sports gets bigger than the games on the field. Why did everybody I know even with people on my production team who don't care about sports watch golf on Sunday? Well, let's see because the greatest golfer of all time came back under what seemed like impossible circumstances in rows right to the top of the sport in a after being written off for really good reasons over the last several years, especially over the last five or six years because he because Tiger Woods is a ground-breaking figure culturally. The people who don't know the wouldn't know Jordan Spieth of walked up their driveway know, who he is the he's he's an icon and a groundbreaker. So we has significance beyond the game. He plays. And because we all love a good redemption story, whether it's true or not we all want to believe that if you turn your life around if you do the right things instead of the wrong things if you follow the rules. You will be rewarded somehow in the cosmic sense. And for a lot of people. I think that's what it felt like I I'm not sure if the greatest I'm trying to think is this. Latest comeback story in sports history. That's a big one. Right. And I have a personal bias on that. Because I saw George Foreman. When the heavyweight championship at age forty six having been away for eleven years, and then come back as a big fat guy had people laugh Ataman lose nine rounds of a fight Nakagawa the tenth. So that was pretty good. But this that probably just me, but otherwise yet may potentially the greatest comeback story in the history of sport, a nostalgia moment for some people. I yeah, I get creeped out thinking of nineties style. Just somebody my age at doesn't nineties is like yesterday. But there's it's an established a moment, you know, this kind of the big three right there. Right. So within the sport historical greatest of all time, and the redemption narrative, and the and the style jet for a certain generation who remember remember when way way back in those nineteen nineties tell me about that. Because that was something that everybody was talking about right after he won is that moment twenty something years ago. Now when the world saw Tiger Woods for the first time. Do you? Remember the first time you saw Tiger Woods. That's good. I know not specifically. I certainly remember the first master's I remember talking about him in the US amateur. I remember him being out. You know, what I know? I take that back. You know, when I saw him the first time, I was at home as a teenager, a young teenager. Maybe not even a teenager yet. And after school. My parents watched the Mike Douglas show, which was a talk show that was on every day like five o'clock in the afternoon, and that's the famous show where they were L. Whereas whereas all man brought him out as a six year old and he had calls. I saw that show. Do you remember when Tiger Woods became I guess the Tiger Woods that we talk about? When we talk about the beginning of this story. When is lapping the field at the masters. I'm one of those moments when he just did something that when he seemed on another planet when he seemed different from all of the rest when he separated himself and that puts him on a very short list with Jordan and alley and what was it like watching him in the late nineties and early two thousands. Well, the guy so I'm not a golf guy. I have to. So is this I read like, I quit playing golf is fourteen. I walked off the course on the second hole. I hated hated the people here that the clothing, I did everything. So I just laughed. I literally just walked off in the middle of the game. And that's why we're talking you. Because this story is golf, so I hate golf and everything about it. But no, he was he was like a he was a superman, right? He was this. And and again, the nontraditional nature in terms of golf the whitest of sports. Yeah. Those days more so than now. But the idea that you could be, you know, someone other than a rich white kid, and and take on the sports or the way they're with Williams sisters and tennis the same that you could you could kind of just going to throw this back through all of that back in people's faces planned courses that were segregated up. You know within my lifetime. Yeah. There were courses that I remember remember the commercial? I think that Nike did about that. He was the first black person to ever play on some of these courses that he'd been playing. Yeah. I do remember that. And that was you know, again, that's a very so you felt like this was righteous to that that he was kicking down those doors and breaking those barriers and thumbing. Knows that the racist and the racist traditions and golf news, you know, total package now that that said the other side of them was completely unknowable. You know, we saw him. He was again public use a public figure, and he's a six year old to a degree. And he was kind of a brand Ike on it was like, Jordan. He was universal. Right. You could you could show that picture in any continent on earth and people say, oh, that's him. But he was impenetrable. He still is I have no idea who that guy is I really don't you know, has left people try to figure it out. And a lot of very fine writers have taken a crack at it. But I have no idea who what's inside them. Do you think we know him better now than we did ten twelve years ago? I think we would like to think we do again, I think under pretending that we know these people is important to us because it gives meaning to something that's otherwise meaningless which guy just put myself out of out of a job here. But you know, it doesn't really matter this stuff. Right. It doesn't. It's funny. You're like putting a little white ball and a hauler Gorna touchdown or scoring a winning goal and overtime and hockey game. Then add up a whole lot. You know, it doesn't even add up to what your doesn't add up art adds up to you know, with art. You can say the the art is the is what's important. So we will forgive people when number one you don't need to know the personality of the person producing yard you. Appreciate the art as a separate thing from them. And number two, you forgive them their sins. Right. Doesn't matter miles Davis horrible person. Right. Like one of the worst people ever, but produced sublime transcendent, revolutionary, art. And that's enough. You don't have to care about him. But but fleet was that's the thing. It's different. Because this no one's I. Yeah. I know it's you can argue make the argument that it's art, but you know, games come and goes Gore's, come and go somebody wins somebody loses. Like I've been doing. I've been writing about this stuff for a long time. It it. It doesn't add up to a la- beans, but if we can give it meaning, you know, if you can kind of imbue it with meeting and say, there's a human lesson here. And there's a human involved in this. Then I think it kinda justifies it. So I think that's part of we want to turn this into a parable. We wanna turn sports into a parable. That's how we understand the world is, you know, through parable as someone who. Who tries to do that and turn sports into those lessons for us. What did you think when I guess when Tigers false started when the news broke of the car crash and the details of that came out any stepped away? I you know, I felt like Klay like the rest of us. You know, it was it was interesting because it was kind of a flash of humanity in there he'd been so packaged and so protected in so manufactured, and, you know, both as a player, you know, by his father, and then certainly by Nike and everybody else who were in the image business image management business to to to be around tiger. I was a couple of times golf tournaments. And you know, there's no, you know, sense of what was behind this thing. And so, you know, I think that there is well, it's what the gossip industries built on right that they're kind of the Makarius thrill of oh, they're like us, aren't they? They're just like us. As a real under the Nike. Yeah. But especially on a flawed Cuban, right? So yeah, he may be rich, and he may be handsome, and he may be may have this beautiful wife. And but really he's like, you know, the the bad guy down the block, you not like you because you would never know that he was like the bad guy down the block. He has flaws. He's he's he's human in a so, but I I think there's a little bit of glee that goes without sometimes kinda, you know, the the whole shot and Freud thing, right? That you're you're you. I think a lot of people kind of were excited about it. You know, in some ways and said there, you go, you know, you may have thought you were something else. But here's what you really are. But I think it would it mostly revealed was a guy who I again, I'm not going to I wouldn't try and put a framework aunt and say, he was you know, all about golf and then never developed the other dimensions of his humanity. I have no idea. Like, I I don't know who the guy is. I don't pretend. But I think the impulse there is to say, yeah, he's he's a he's he's a flawed human being like the rest of us. And again weirdly to take some satisfaction from it. Well, there is that narrative that we probably like to put on. Sports stars because they're bigger and faster and better and richer than us that they are missing out on an essential part of humanity because they had to focus on this game since they were three years old. And they missed the whole rich tapestry of life that we got. Yes. No. And that's a great point. Right. That is a great point that, you know, the those character lessons you learned by being a really crappy little league player, right? For instance, or how to sit on a bench or being dumped by various girlfriends or ignored by others or just understanding failure that these guys were believed they were impervious to it. But in fact, you know, everybody gets their come up at some point. But again, that's that's kind of a religious theme. Isn't it? It really is. Yeah. Well, it's the it's the new idea of the human experience. Right. And that we all kind of go through the worst valleys in our lives. And it's what comes after that makes it worthwhile. Theoretically, you're radically. Yeah. Theoretically, or you know, it could be just all pointless, which would be another another more bleak way to look at it. We'll how unlikely was the next peak after that Val. Because it wasn't just the personal life scandal. It was like I mean you cover lots of athletes who try to come back from Steph. If I asked you five years ago, Steven what's the chance that I see? Tiger Woods win another green jacket snow slim two years ago. Right. Look, it's not about and it's not about the personal life stuff in this sense. Because look he was quite capable of winning golf tournaments while his personal life was apparently you're Radyr chaotic he managed to keep those things separate as when it was the physical stuff. It's one is back when you know, this guy who could barely bender bent over to pick something up off the floor two years ago the back. You can't swing a golf club with with that. You know, I think physically that idea that no matter how hard he worked his body at broken. And that's you know, way that it was not it did not appear to be able. So he could try as hard as he wanted to and he can live as clean life as you want to do and all of those things, but it didn't matter because this machine was broken. So I I don't think anybody hearing those stories from twenty sixteen twenty seventeen about his back kind of whispers because. It wasn't very public thought. You know this. No, there's no chance right? He can't go out there and compete. We can week out. And then he kind of comes back, I guess about a little over a year ago now and starts playing golf and laying. All right. And even then I don't know about you. But it was like watching an older athlete play out his years with some semblance of what he used to be. But not the same person, certainly the British the British Open right in the open championship. Right. Where you come thought. You know, he's he's not that far off and it's not like, but it's a different year. Right. It's a different vibe was a different vibe in at the masters because you know, the the old vibe is the, you know, I'm going to I'm going to destroy you. I'm going to destroy the golf course, which is what really I'm going to destroy the rest of you in this tournament. And that kind of Uber confidence that he had. I thought the most interesting thing watching that last round was watching him play the eighteenth hole, so carefully so super carefully. Right. Because you know, again, I would have been it would have been just insane you up there and hit a driver at that point, you know, because God knows and and but just. Kind of watching him play a really safe bogey to win that tournament. That's that's not in some ways. That's the anti-tiger. Right. It's just but it was it was smart. It was the right thing to do. And really the way he won that the way you try in that last round was by being kind of dog it and watching and consistent and then watching other people fail around him. It wasn't like he just sees them by the throat they had to fail. So that's a little different. If we're going to do the metaphor thing. Again, he humbled himself in front of the eighteenth hole. And is that can we read into that anything about his new life? I mean, a lot of people talked even before this tournament about how he just wanted to win for his children. Right. And he wanted his kids to see daddy win. And that's not the old tiger. Yeah. And who knows who knows who knows this guy enough to actually say that. I have no idea. I think he probably likes being tiger. Yeah. And I thought the and the chance to be tiger one more time at forty-three. That'd be pretty cool. Right. That'd that'd be an yes, it'd be great to have it. Do it in front of your children? Who'd never really got to experience it in to shut up the nose of everybody who ever said anything about you, there'd be a lot of things that you would take satisfaction from. But again, this is a guy who has programmed to be that that thing that character that kind of golf playing robot from the time he was a toddler, and you know to have that. It's right Thompsons got a new book about kind of greatest the kind of the the nature of some of the greatest of all time athletes him Jordan criminal for the other two are, but is his take on tiger is among his takes on tiger. Now, he's a great writer of golf and a Greg. I was around the sport is you know, that he thinks tiger hated the sport that whole first phase that he he was incredibly good at it and hated every minute of it because it had been forced and imposed upon him. So again, if I'm going to play amateur shrink here, I could talk about them being liberated in this second half and doing it for himself and for his own reasons rather than someone else's reasons and not having the daddy figure hovering over in them and being the daddy himself. And but like now, I'm a sports I'm being a sports writer here. Just extrapol-. I saw that column come into view. I just don't know if it's true, right? I honestly don't I have no idea. I I've no idea we know what lies in his soul. But I don't have any idea. What lies in most people souls? Right. It's we, but we go seeking it. We go seeking that story. Yeah. We're trying to find the meaning we're trying to find the meaning. Yeah. It's and you know, and then tomorrow, we'll try and find the meaning and something else. But this one looked the one thing as a sports writer sports writers people. I was asked to do cheer. We cheer for stories. Yeah. I've been lots of press boxes. Lots of press rooms everybody. Cheers for the story. Everybody got what they were cheering for and you'll end fan through the really that's what fans want you wanna. Yeah. You support your team and you support the uniform. But man, there's nothing like a story is there. Well, here's the question. Then how come I was and probably you were certainly millions and millions of people were cheering so hard for a guy who objectively from the little that we do know about him, isn't that great guy at least hasn't been and cheering form as a huge underdog went objectively. He's one more majors than anybody. But one person and he's one hundreds of millions of dollars because we're flexible. We as a species are very flexible, I wanna feel like we shoot for a real underdog. But we can you know, you can turn it. You know, think about watching the March madness if you have no real rooting interest. And so there's two schools on there. You have no idea who they are. You have no idea who those players are. But you can construct something around that game where when you know, east west North Dakota state beat somebody you go. That's the greatest thing I've ever seen your route informant that basket goes in. And then you go onto the next thing we we do construct stuff like that. And you know, he's like that the idea of the fightback that's really fight back from adversity fight back against the impossible. And the character stuff as I said, it's tricky we could because sport has been a place where we've confused being good at something having great motor skills or winning the genetic lottery, or, you know, working hard or all this up at everybody works hard. Right. We we do confuse I with character. Sometimes those things are blurred might that. You know that he's a character guy. You know? That's that's why that's why he succeeded. Not because you know, he was born this way. A or had some advantages or because there's something else inside. We got we go for that. And a lot of time and the flip side of his we're we're quite willing to ignore the opposite with where somebody could be like Michael Jordan's. Not a nice guy. Right. There's not really any suggestion. That Michael Jordan's a nice go. No there's like with tiger. There's plenty of stories to the contract. And you know, Allie was a terrible husband and a crappy fodder by and large. Now, there's also a political social components rally. So that's you know, it's a little bit different. But as I was saying before about, you know, the separating the art from the artist you can do that with our, you know, Pablo Picasso is bad guy. Right. Really bad guy. But it didn't stop anyone from treating him as Picasso during his work that way. Well, you don't have to cheer for Picasso. You don't and you can see you know, it. It gets tricky with the, you know, the Woody Allens of the world, you know, it gets it gets into some dicey territory there. Maybe I'm not sure anybody's going to listen to a Bill Cosby monologue the same way anymore. But but sport, the two things are connected. The two things are connected, and we'd like to you know, we want to kind of link those two things. Say this guy triumphed or this woman triumphed. Because a yes, they were very compact because they worked harder because they had more of that grit and character in, you know, Royal jelly, we we really we seek that. And I'm not saying, it's not true. But I think it's more that we needed to be true. Or we want it to be true sometime like it's a chicken or the egg did tiger win again because he became a better person or because he's winning again. Do we just think he became a better person Ingo? Yeah. And his backup better. Yeah. That to actually could swing a golf club dad like he may he may be a great guy now and totally, you know, Saint Paul on the road to Damascus had a moment where hang on when everything's clear down. And I'm not going to do all those terrible things anymore or maybe just got healthy. I don't know. We'll never know. But the, but the, but the former is way more compelling than the lab.

You know, what Monet was a nice guy. Okay. He took on like six kids. He he like built a beautiful garden. He had a bunch of students. I'm going to say Monet was a nice guy Picasso.

See that she's doing that and, so she still has insight which is. A term using these illnesses she still completely aware that she might be perceiving, things a little bit funny but she.

"picasso" Discussed on Your Art Sucks
"They. Hello and welcome to your art sucks upon cast that continues to fight against mediocrity in all forms of art. My name is Trevor Stoddard and this is at the sewed five poisonous love Francis Bacon and Pablo Picasso. In this episode, we will look at the troubling lives of these artists to uncover the abusive and deadly relationships that impacted their lives and the lives of those. They loved this is going to be a bit of a disturbing show. So please take note. Some of the content in episode may be hard to listen to, but we want to ensure you that there will be a lot to take from these artists that we can use our own processes and more importantly in our own lives. So let's begin in the previous episode against odds I talked about Christie Brown and how the supposed love of his life. Mary car may have led to his physical decline and premature death. Christy's brother is quoted as saying, Christie loved her, but it wasn't reciprocated because she wasn't that type of person. If she loved him. Like she says, she did. She wouldn't have had a fares with both men and women. I feel she took advantage of him in more ways than one. Now, this is a one sided opinion of relative who was rightly so impacted by Christie's death. But we need to know, is that do neglect, Christie die from choking on his dinner. It was a terrible in for someone so full of life and with many years of gifts still yet to give in that same episode. I also mentioned that the movie about, Christie, my left foot ended on a very high note with the portrayal of Christy and Mary as a couple deep in love all seem roses, and then the credits rolled the reality, sadly, we know was not the fairytale ending. We all long for and this reality got me to think. About artists and relationships. Specifically, it had me wondering if there were artists who were negatively impacted by those that claim to love them or who they claim to love. Surprisingly, there account cases of musicians, authors or actors who've been manipulated or abused or had their careers derailed by jealous overbearing partners. But as we will hear in this episode, this cuts both ways artists have also been the one who dispense talks ity to anyone within arm's reach and the more successful the artist, the more we hear of the Rune lives that they've left in their wake from the instances I've read, it would be a fascinating movie if not for the real lives were destroyed. The reality is such pain and suffering is much more depressing while this episode will be one that may be haunting. I know each of us have experienced relationships, whether from family friends or potential partners. That have caused us much grief or distress pending on how deeply rooted the pain is. There are a few of us who would not channel this baggage into our work. It is for most artists a false source of creative energy. This may seem cliche to some of you, but his painfully obvious that too many artists rely on negative love to spur them to create works, overflowing with emotion enforce. I'm going to cover this in more detail at the end of the episode, but a wanted to stay. Now that any artist who thrives off negativity further inspiration, anyone who uses others drains, their energy to supplement their own will only end up void of creativity. Such vampirism is a one way stream in one such dream dries up. It leaves the artist vacant and vacuous think this is personally, well, how about we begin looking at the unsettling life of our first artists Irish-born figurative painter, Francis Bacon, born.
