My friend you were raised at the in a farmhouse on the property and that name per cell is pretty much synonymous week labor. That's correct My brother and i we still currently work out here My father worked here for over close to forty years started. Here nineteen seventy. I've had numerous calls Actually on both sides of the family work here so you know clybourn and and the per sales of go back several several years probably starting in the mid sixties of one of my first articles Making his debut out here you know. I read an article that had a piece about your uncle. Don am i correct on that he was your uncle. Right don yes. He was a yearling manager for several years. Yup yup and Passed away in september. Unfortunately you will be missed. But he worked with secretariat riva ridge roundtable and even got to meet his favorite actor. John wayne at clayborn kinda interesting. When we we had visitation we We saw those pictures. And it's just it's amazing because you hear people talk about opposite. John wayne in these horses like secretary and river ridge and so forth but for family members to be associated with them and and have memorabilia pictures taken with them on both sides of the spectrum with horses and People it's it's it's just awesome.

And so prior to substitute stuck, you're one of the founders of kick, which is the the messaging APP that was particularly popular amongst teens but shutdown last year. which was also after you'd left to 'em. So how to kick come about how to kick? Why met Ted In. Third, year university. And kind of fair early on in the SMARTPHONE era I guess we would on -Tario the. Rim made the black. That'll phone that had the keyboard accident and there was sort of. A. Time back then when. It was early days smartphone. The people that had lack breeze were kind of like wall, Street, traders and interns from the university waddled the work that Larry and so we sort of had this early idea that okay. The smartphone is going to take over the world. which is something that was is seems really obvious rep respect. But at the time people maybe didn't fully believe or didn't fully understand and we started working on we actually started making a music player for the blackberry and went through a bunch of iterations morph in March and ended up. Coming to messaging felt like messaging was kind of the core most Gordon application of this magical new computer physiologic her And the kick was around for around skin ten years and it was I guess without its controversies Choisir. What was one of the biggest lessons that learn in in building that business? I mean, there was a lot of just mechanics of building company. I sometimes joke that doing it a second time as a chance to make mistakes. I think one thing that really stuck with me is when you have a system that people are using to communicate the rules of how the system are and the inch rations the just the the way the present interactions people can have a massive effect on. The emergent behavior in that system like the the outcomes, the kinds of feel a place.

No, I've left kick under. Circumstances. That seem like the right time we bought a company. There's somebody that was perfect advice. Great your means by. Taking. I.

The PT Cruiser: A Custom-Built Downfall
"Into the new Millennium Chrysler had a lot of good energy surrounding them stirred the prowler. He didn't do amazing. But it gave Chrysler much-needed image rebranding and got people excited for what was to come. They had spent the better part of a decade designing and engineering a new car using the most sophisticated technology on the planet and they were confident it was going to be a hit. The PT Cruiser was Chrysler's flers savior. Chrysler chose a plant into Luca Mexico right outside of Mexico City to begin production on the new car. This Chrysler plant had a reputation for building. High Quality. Cars on a shoestring budget says workers were not paid very well. I don't know This plant also made dodge see brings and strategize strategists dodge stratos the Gulf of the year. Two thousand the first year of production for the PT Cruiser was to build one hundred eighty thousand thousand of them but Chrysler immediately ran into a problem. The car in the engine were assembled on separate production lines until the engine has to go into into the engine bay. Chrysler did this all the time but because everything on the PT cruiser was machine to fit perfectly. There is literally no room for error. The engine in Bay had only point six of an inch clearance experience. Workers struggled to fit the engine into the pizza. Cruiser and for the first couple of weeks of production. The only we finished one car a day for Reference Ferrari today builds about twenty cars a day. The only way that deluca plant could do it was by stopping both assembly assembly lines until the engine had been installed in one car something needed to be done quickly if they were ever going to meet the one hundred eighty thousand car quota can you imagine being on the production line and like you're in the middle somewhere like do I'm good at making doors putting doors on this thing right those baths at the time. Just do your job put the engine. I do WANNA be the guy gets to run up and like hit the red but the next stop C. I. A.. You got to put the engineering guys what you will need. You solve the problem. Exact Gary Henson told the plant manager Luiz Rivas to practice the process for two weeks. The workers set up a three section practice area in a corner of the factory. Each sector had five workers and if they could not complete their task before the car move to the next section the line would hold until the could seems pretty reasonable at the end of the two week practice session. The plant went from one car a day to one car. Every ten minutes conventionally as production got into a groove and Chrysler selling cars that deluca plant could build one. PT Cruiser every eighty seconds. Problem solve so act. That whole thing was because there is only point. Six of an inch I think combined or light so like when you're dropping the motor and before the hoods on. Yeah you have a little bit more than half an inch to squeeze in the voter to get it in in place because they used all these cats systems engineers designed it to be as practical and like utilitarian. Tehran is possible right so they used every square inch every square inch of space and then the workers figured it out engineers are Dick's the year two thousand was huge for the PT cruiser. The car officially went on sale in March and people went crazy for them for the first year the not only came in two trim levels base model. PT's had an MS RPM of fifteen thousand four hundred fifty dollars and the highest trim level the limited addition came in at eighteen thousand two hundred sixty which according to my inflation calculator. Fifteen thousand four fifty in today's money as twenty three thousand one hundred seventy one dollars. It's more expensive than I thought. And then the top of the line trim at eighteen thousand to sixty is the same as is twenty seven thousand three hundred eighty five dollars to twenty three thousand dollar car or twenty seven thousand dollar car. What what can you get for twenty three grand today civics Cross track severe across getting a Nice Kia. If you'd like but it was going up against Camrys and yes and probably record and there's probably a lot of people like people cross shop really weird stuff all the time I bet. There's people cross shopping against like GPS Sherry Raff four four. Yeah that kind of stuff pretty pretty small compared to this right so this had five more cubic feet of cargo space raffling around our. Okay Yeah Okay Anyway at that price point even the most expensive. PT was pretty affordable customers loved the PTA for its unique heritage inspired. Styling and utilitarian design nine. Don't you ever say retro. It was reliable cheap fund and had a cool factor. It didn't look anything else on the road which was again we have to remember. This car is a huge deal back then and that was a large reason why was the looks pretty groundbreaking dealers couldn't keep these things in stock and soon weightless filled up one in guy from Louisiana bought one of the first.

"But I certainly don't think that he'll be a first ballot. Then there's you know, the guys like Randy moss or or Durrell Rivas who weren't gonna here patriots. But they are probably the first guy for Hillary. But I would assume, but it is very interesting when you kind of break down the patriots dynasty. It's a lot of guys who are in that kind of Tedy Bruschi or Julia element range and the Julian idle men hall of fame conversation is a whole different conversation. But guys who would not traditionally be hall players, and they're even talking about guys like the Guinness in that group too. And and inventory of four if you never makes it where very solid players, maybe made, you know, two or three pro bowls or two or three all pros, but weren't considered among the best. Players at the position in their generation. So yeah, and I quite honestly, I probably would have thrown Tyler into that group as well. He did make the hall of fame. But I didn't think that that was clear cut. Some patriots fans. Do I think he was a very good cornerback? I don't think that he was necessarily ever in the conversation for best cornerback of his era. He was in the top five, but probably wasn't beating out. Charles Woodson champ Bailey during portion his career and that falls in line. Like, I said with a lot of those other guys who were part of this patriots honesty. Right. Yeah. I think there's a lot of hall of very good guy there but not necessarily a ton of hall of famers, not nothing to do with their talent. Just you know, I think that they were regarded especially early in this this dynasty run. Just as they were the team. You know, it was always about the team the team the team the players the players, so. I could see like you said ventral for getting it wouldn't shock me. I wouldn't be horrified. I think he is deserving player and incredible defensive tackle. But you know, a guy generic many stats and at the end of the day the hall of fame on fairly. I think it's fair to say someone who really wants a lot more offensive lineman again to the hall of fame tends to be organization that rewards stats rewards. Let's Pro Bowl and all pro parents could be tough. One other guy, actually, I didn't mention, but I to toiler is actually deserve mention. I think it's possible that was Welker gets in the hall of fame. I don't think he will not sure if he necessarily deserves to, but I do think that he could be in the conversation. And the other one is Logan making too is in that very bizarre range of patriots. The patriots dynasty where he played from two thousand five to twenty thirteen and mansion not Windsor with the team. But he was a seven time Pro Bowl pro bowler. He was a first Email appro in two thousand ten a five time second team, all pro. So just based alone off of that office pro bowls and all pros and the level play that he was playing it throws grew. He probably should be a hall Famer. But the fact that he wasn't honest Tupelo team that that one I think could take away from him a little bit actually guy who are forgetting about is Adam venit, Terry. Oh, Terry too. Yeah. Absolutely. I think that you know, I'm not sure if it's first ballot, but he'll get in eventually, and what's kinda. Funny is that as far as hey, the being on the patriots goes Stephen Gostkowski, my actually be better patriots kicker than uninventive, Terry. But he didn't have as many big moments that you can point to actually now that you bring up Casta surprised. He's not signed at the moment. I'm very surprised by that. I think that they did need to clear this cap space. I think that now that that rob gronkowski is retired. I think it increases the chances that he will come back just because he wasn't gonna play for free. He was going to play on a contract Ryan Allen or anything. So I think he probably will be in that, you know, four million dollar range..

Way different. But some people don't even give about that. No for you. You're saying for you. It's just being together as being too and like not making demands on each other to is really nice.

Just as soon as I started getting any interest. I was like oh this. Was great. And I now am trying now I just communicate more like where before I'd be like, I'm not really looking for anything, but we can make our butts, and that's fine with our. But we'll make rub butts make out with our with our butts to put on her. But and so like, I'm setting that is like this is the peak of what I can do and a lot of times the other personal blog.

But I never felt like I had the equity just because I connect finances to like that I feel like that's a poverty mindset thing. Oh, that's literally me equity. Yes. Emotional equity and financial connected for me. Yeah. Because it's like a lot of times. I like I had a girl who we were seeing each other for a while. And she's you don't care about me. And what do you mean? We don't go to eat. We don't go to the movies like you'd be come over have sex. We hang out we watch it and go home, right? And for my my oh shit. Like, if I don't have a lot of money when when I take people the movies dinner. I usually take my nephews and niece because their dad's a piece of shit, right? And so I'm not taking you, but we're eating together. And could you know what I'm saying? Like, we're watching things time together, but I'm not spending money. I'm not doing the things that you think are you processes care right going back to proximity based care when I'm with my family who I love I care about them. When I'm with them. We eat together, we watch things, and we barely talk. That's care to me. Right. So if we're doing all those things and the sexes. Good. I'm crushing this Kerr shit. Right. But cares different for everybody. But everybody's. Also different for everybody in that.

And I'm like, this is a professional phone call. I read Mario brothers. And then she whistles the theme song for Mario brothers. Yeah. And I'm like, that's crazy. And she was like, yeah. You know, I just saw star. And it made me think of that game. And I was like what are the chances that we both had that at the same man either you like that stuff or you hate it. And I don't care either way. But I love it. And I. So mushroom serendipity make them crazy. Did did you have like deep experiences or were they leading question. It always feels like I'm def- ragging my subconscious. I loved that perfect. So computer, I like all the shit spread all over the place and has not. We're just doing mushrooms like, that's that's what I tell people. Like if you're a voiding something. Yeah. The mushrooms and you'll make you deal with it. But then you'll be fine afterwards. But that might make you have a bad trip because you've been voiding those because you don't want to do it because it's bad. That's right. But I usually. I wear my sadness is on may. So it's pretty like, I'm not running from things. So it was just like I remember the that one trip. I went to the beach and the city was shrinking, and then I remember seeing a lot of signs that said west, but we're pointing east right? And just a lot of that type of thing. Whereas just like cities growing and shrinking is like. You know? And then looking at since then like Cleveland has grown shrunk like a grew in LeBron came back in shrunk in regards to people when he left again, even though all the ingredients and shit are still there right place. I went west eventually, but I stayed in Cleveland into a lot of New York. And then doing that got me comics to watch got me, my comedy central special, and then I wound up in LA Fronton a couple years. So it's like that trip was telling me things, but I wasn't right. I wasn't in the trip was a head of you. Yes. And then other times I've done it. Like like, I did it at pitchfork music festival in Chicago one time, and that was intense because this is a lot of people around you like picking up people's energy and show. And I I was getting real paranoid. Because I'm like, yo we can't use phones. Does my fuck in your phones are in bags?

And then like sometime that might cost me opportunities because it's like, oh, we he's funny. But like when we can't bring that might be why didn't do colleges because the weeds weed, I don't know if is Doug big and Doug Benson. I don't know. I have no idea you do have a market do have a market now. I haven't getting like and cannabis industry gig offers for like, yeah. Stacks of money. Okay. And then all of them fall through. Not.

Well, I had no no I smoke. We not Chapelle white guy. You know, I I smoke. We. Don't be surprised when did you have taken mushroom have taken mushroom? And that was good for you to. It was real fun. Like this was like two thousand. Thirteen got into mushrooms edit at used to do called mushroom Mondays where I would like take mushrooms just walk around and take pictures shit and hashtag it with mushroom Mondays which is weird. But then that's an existing hashtag that regular people. Just post actual mushrooms. Like said there cooking, though, we're just like in nature and shit. And so like someone commented on my picture like where's the mushrooms in this picture mushrooms there in my bloodstream? That's funny because I've thought about like, oh, it would be interesting to do a podcast on mushrooms. But whenever I've been on them. I'm like the thought of something that you would like post on the internet or record doesn't seem to make much sense. But you got around that my my main I with the thing I realize mushrooms is you don't have anything you need to do. Yeah. But have things you can do. So I my most enjoyable times doing mushrooms where like everything you need to do. But things you can't. So like, I valid I'll put out like crepe Ha's pains. And we tend to not do it. Yeah. I along time I just like music wandering is favourite really because I just put the music on shuffle. And then I'm wandering and then sometimes like like the first time, I did it. I like walked I walked real far. But I walk from my house all the way to the beach the beach and his winter so cold on my bottled up and the water's whip in the clouds are moving and then the city's like growing and shrinking. The music that's playing all feels like could do like this song by this rapper. Mikey rocks. From the coup kids come came on as I was looking at a bunch of rocks. Like just like very like. Oh, all these things seem kind of connected. Even though it's on shelf oil something's happening. You know? Yeah. Sure. Probably just because I was on mushrooms making those connections. But it's hard to know. It's that feeling like is this because I'm on mushrooms. Or is this always that's how serendipity feels most of all the time. And and then the I was on the phone this morning, by the way. So I'm working on a book, I was on the phone with the legal department. You have a good title yet. It's it's called selflessly selfish. Nice. All right. I got thirty percent mental equity. It's called comedy sex God because of the things I care about or honestly, it's kind of what I used to care about. What if I mean, I still care about comedy comma sex hyphen God there should be like? Okay. Got you. I plan on every interview that I do about the book being explaining that. I'm not calling myself a comedy sex. But that's the life actor if that's how you read it. Yeah. You can't help people's perception. That's true. Let it go not personal. So I was scrolling through the book, and I'm looking for quotes for the legal department. I'm like, you got to clear this we've got to try and clear that and I'm reading the book as I'm going, you know, skimming it, and I read the the words I'm talking about Maui,.

But now people are like, oh Ramon just leaves during my say or like, oh, he's not talking to me. And I'm like, oh, your people are putting shit on my actions and inactions that I'm I'm completely unaware of. So like again, I'm not aware of those dynamics for a while. Boy, lowly people that goes it does change. How people look at you. And it just gives you a weird like I didn't realize that I was becoming an upperclassman. As far as I had like the like I said like Dalton and poke in twos. When I started where those dudes, and then suddenly, I was with those dudes even though I still fell right gap, right? And felt very much like where I'm still borrowing cars to get out here for shows. Right. I'm still do. He had the shows. I still had the Joe who's opening GRA Hannibal with the four hundred that was me. And he Yousef Ali tell flip. And I point that out because that's right. We did that on crashing where does benefit for Artie. And he's like, and I can host and like somebody calls already calls me out my character. He's like, oh, you wanna do about it? So you can give him to the club that you can't play. It was like, you know. And he's still get the money or for way. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So it's it's an essential part self selfless. Selflessly selfish is essential. I love him to keep going and then just kind of kept doing that. So like. It's slowly I was running the other shows and some some starts got to the point where I had like five or six venues that were like consistent could different sides of town, different vibes. And then I had a music and arts festival music arts and technology festival. Ask for a comedy stage. So curious comedy stage at it, and it was like under a bridge. Like half a mile from hilarious right under a red under Brit. And so that first year I had like two friends like the Lucas brothers came out. Lease drew, Michael bunch of people who did shit algebra acting. Al Jackson, Mike Palo sacri, like my headliners, quote, unquote. And then the next year I was doing that. Again, people came to the bridge people came to the bridge Legos like it was like a bunch of people walking under the bridge. And then we had like a side space that was like a stage. So people would like trickle in I programmed every block was like a forty five to fifty minute block. And then it'd be a ten minute turnover. And then the next thing would start. Well, so that way it was just like easy to sit consume a little and keep going, you know, because there's no ticketing whatever. Right. So the next year I'm doing that again. And I randomly weekly up to it ahead. Canadian booked at the low Redstone Gago ahead. Neal hamburger booked grog shop, and I was like, oh if I fill these gaps in. And that's kind of an accidental comedy festival. That's was the first official year of accidental comedy fast. And it was at the time. It was like all over Cleveland, all these different venues, all these different vibes. And then a after a few years. I put it all in one venue. This bowling alley hipster bowling on called may halls that had three stages, and then the last two years, it's been hilarious. Wow. So it's gotten to got to lab where he used to hang out. Yeah. Machine on half mile from the bridge. Yeah. You know, like. Thirty minutes for thirty minutes walking. Yeah. That's too long. You don't upset. We're very close to the bridge. I used to do. And so it's it's really cool. But it's also changed the context of it. Because it always used to be this thing that I just did because I love Cleveland of comedy what's happening here.

Maybe he was I was in Kentucky think it was in Virginia doing my first college. And then like I saw in Buffalo's Hannibal funches Marcello Gueo. They're all up there. Like, they'll be responsible. Just drive the buffalo. Hang on my friends, so taxes them takes him. I might want to do show in Cleveland tomorrow, and I had fallen asleep and I woke up at like four in the morning, and I saw that and my oh, all right. So I get my car start driving. And then I'm sending tax on my. Hey, let's try from where from Virginia he was in buffalo. He's I think my won't do show including Amaro. So I'm like start driving. I start messaging and there was this venue called the Nash on eightieth. There's like old Slovenian home. And it's an epicenter of where the housing crisis hit. No one goes over there and the membership is now handfuls of people, right? But the there's as young dude who grew up in trying to save the space and keep it, vibrant, whatever. So I done a show there before. So it was okay. Can we do this last minute? He's like, okay. We'll make it happen. I'm cool. And then he thought I was talking for the next week. So he had to go by booze go to shit. And then like the group numbers had to like do the door the bartending. Do this do that. And literally like we announced a show it to and almost four hundred people came out wasn't as part of Cleveland. No one goes to we told everyone to take. Uber's lifts in the drivers are like where we're going and only two drivers will go pick people up. Really? Yeah. And that shit was so fucking that felt like everything like what comedy should feel like like everyone's here. We're having a good time. We're vibe in like Philly iota club. Like, this is fun. But like get out. We have another show. Right. You know, like, there's no it doesn't feel like a community just feels like consumption. Yeah. Just fine. But it's like that, you know. Those shows in Cleveland make me feel like there's something everything's building towards something. I don't know what it is. But like, I was just morning meltdown. We drove has meltdown Valentine we early. Yeah. Man. Yeah. Because it was the hang built him. And there was no show bind at no, he stay there. All night. Yeah. Would be there. They closed. The comic bookstore is the best. So you wanted to like, desolate area did a show four hundred people. I love the soldiers Landon, slowly just like started reaching out to people and then agents and managers started reaching out to me. And my oh, this is cool. But I just didn't realize for until rep you now, no no to book to book their people. So when. What super funny is when I did my half hour people were like Ramon Rivas. He's a talent buyer. Wow. So it was a good thing. They knew my name. But it was a bad thing because context, but you weren't worried about that. I still don't worry about guy had a manager for like a year. But I don't I like now I'm just back solo like DIY. Yeah. And it feels fine. Feels so fine. He said fine. Okay. You could tell I just know the the, you know, the tone of. No, you got the lyrics. But the idea that like some people again a mental hurdle to get over is. And I've heard comic say I would produce shows. But I don't want to be known as a producer. I just had to I did Sarka perform more athletes, and then I was good at it. Yeah. Because I Mike I it's a little it's very it's a lot of stress and anxiety, dealing with people's egos and expectations and desires for things. They're not ready for like keeping things like all these continent. Just like, I as my social position changed in Cleveland. Like, I'm still broke living with my family, but suddenly people are like Ramones here. I got to try to impress. Right. Because I run these open mics or work at the factory with Aaron and everyone's just trying to get on. And it's just a weird. Like oh..

"I don't mean a rough neighborhood Spero fart, or it's like, why would I do animal? Yeah. And hid do it. Do the five pm show BMC Jody the me in kumail, and those guys we had our shows, but we didn't work as hard as Hannibal interesting. Nobody where nobody did. Yeah. Not even close. But I mean, we hustled. I mean, he definitely replaced Seinfeld as my role model for work ethic. Like once I got like fully with them. But you know, what? Seinfeld. Started in the disco tech. And stuff at a time when comedy clubs didn't even exist. Yeah. So those dudes are Hannibal level to handle just like of the same cloth. Yeah. He like some some of us are just too scared. I think back when I got to New York for the first time, and I would go to like like flatbush and do some poetry open mic or or the fact that I went I'm like, I just wanna Ramon reverse flag myself. I'm like, how did you know any media to keep trudging that shit is so precious to me, it's the sort of stuff that like I wouldn't impose that on my daughter. I don't care if she has driving this way or not. But you like if you do want to pursue some sort of weird thing like this. I hope you have some of that like mix of naive and courage. But also just sort of like this this ownership of this is what I do like you sort of take on the Monica of comedian. And you're like what we do. And we have the examples we had the animals, and I had the Seinfeld and go like they were. Really hard and they hustled. So you got to Chicago yet Ruben board, we're not in Cleveland anymore. You're flattening the land sim city. Yeah. So like I'd hadn't I'd been doing more shows in Cleveland. Like, I think before I left I hosted a week at hilarity right before I left for the summer. How'd you get that? I still see that. As like it took a while. They're like, I'm doing Kobe. I'm like, no, tell me how you got to host Larry I when you weren't shit. I so I just had like a lot of my friends who I was meeting like the gym Twose's. And Ryan don't know Mike pokes who are the veterans and the veteran professionals in Cleveland, oh, you can actually do this thing. Essential guys. Yes. So they would be hosting featuring at the club until I started going with them. Just like hang out perfect. It's all I started doing even that even that. So I started at easy to do start asking for guest spots know being coke machines kind of good, man. There's it's kind of an essential energy to be like, can you? Go to club. No. You won't get anything. Yeah. Don't piss anybody off don't even really make that much of an impression either way to be around just beer out. That's what I was like you're a ham and Egger in that good way. Just like a comfortable guy people go like the club. Probably looking back. We're probably like this. Well, I was actually going to say you never know they might have been a little bit happy that comedian was there because you never know when things go sideways keep going and so start doing that. And they'll start asking for guesses. No, the nursing and then I'd is by persistence, persistence, persistence. And also by pointing out like, I started having a certain point like who will I can be as bad as that person that they were leading to host and not like, I hate shitting people, and I wasn't trying to. I'm just like I can do that..

"It's tempting to go into the victim mode. Well, because it's like your dad could have by rights been like I have to work harder than these guys. And they suck. Yeah. And just because we're what is your lineage? I my dad's Puerto Rican just because I'm not while just say because I'm not a white guy. I got to work harder for less, and it's hard could have been like fuck this. But instead he figured away around an admirable mom did the same thing. Same thing. And then Ramon Rivas number twos. About to do the same. There's a lot of. Self starting hustle and that, but there's also very little if any stability. Yeah. So like everything you get is. Because you went and got. Yeah. And so, you know, saying all that to go to how I approached comedy. Like once I found it like I was where they open about it. Did you absorb it quietly coke machine style or they? It's one of those. I realized that that's something. I realized like going back the since I moved to allay going back and seeing them like, oh, you everyone in my family's worked very hard to be exactly where they're you picked up by most they weren't like lectures. No, no, no, not at all. And so like, I giving space to be that when you were like, I'm going to be a comedian. They weren't like, dude. I just put in twelve Florida. Dave question. They questioned it. And like wait, you're going to do what how much pay like nothing. But like, I wanna do it. And they're like. All right. Here's the car. Like, I didn't have a car at the time. So like I was getting from Lorraine to Cleveland for open mics by borrowing like, my mom or dad's sister's car, and so I was they would sacrifice being able to do shit that evening for me to go. Do these Mike whatever which by the way, the Mike are ready hard enough? You know what? I mean, if you inconvenience someone. Yeah. And so, and so it was one of those another reason she's another four foregin the road where you could be like, I do it. But I got a I don't want to you know, we were talking about your nephew or whoever was it's overly arguably, overly empathetic. I don't wanna put them out. Yeah. It takes that little Lord of like I got to and it's the little spark of no, I should be able to do this. He my nephew a few weeks ago who's as midterms and stressed out on my what do you trust? Like, I don't make a bunch of stuff. And he started listening to bunch of delicious things, and I'm like, well, I'll eat those. I tell me what you need to get the stuff that's going to require you spending money. Yeah. And fuck year too aware of how poor the family is because you're still a child technically, you shouldn't be aware place. It's just a want things. Yeah. You know, you just you don't want ingredient. So you could practice cooking right to entered frigging. And so that's where I'm like I've been here for two years. And I'm like, oh, I could have like help that not a thing. Yeah. But anyways, and then bring the list tomorrow, and he didn't bring he refused to bring the list. All relate, not to polite. Here's I was busy at school, blah, blah. And then I'm like, well, let's just look recipe online. You can practice don't matter. He's like no I have to practice the exact recipe like we have to. So he just very like, no just Bilton excuses for every. And I don't know how to bottle the stop giving a fuck. Yeah. I have I know to give to that's it stopped giving a fuck year..

"Like when I was a kid who was full on like a live, and there was shipyards auto industry and still yards and the school system. Was gonna have like a magnet program for if you were advanced whatever I was in that. And then. And then now fast forward to now like all those industry slowly died over the last several decades. Yeah. The still the only thing that still mill still makes his pipes for fracking. So if the steel mill ever comes back, it's because they're fucking the world. Right. And it's like good news, bad news. Yes. And so now, there's all the schools. I went to torn down. There's more dollar generals than schools in the city. I grew up in and still stay in when I go home. So it's weird that it's like. Talking to my friends and like going to therapy last year. Like, I rose I that's kind of like a like normalized just city dying sh- Matic. Yeah. But you don't realize that you can't you didn't really going back to what you were saying about skimming on is giving on the kind of idea. You didn't really learn necessarily the importance of processing something through your emotional liver. Like morning something. Yes. There is a time to say that's beautiful and just have a good cry. Because for some reason that built into our software that we need to like go through these. Yeah. And it must be really fucking crazy man that we I think everybody knows the trauma of going back to their old house. This is so mild traumas, maybe too strong. We're going back to your old house. He grew up at an a style style. Just like pain for the mass. Yeah. Pain for the past year and someone else lives there just that can be like who are the O'Brien's the fuck out of my bedroom. It's an office now Kurt. Your feelings. So if you go back to your town, which is a character in your life and everything that was pulsing thriving is now a Dollar General or making a pipe to like violate the earth excise. It's a weird thing. And so like, the instability that came from like, the fracturing of the family units and all this stuff around me addition to the economy collapsing. It's like looking at it. I'm the product of a lot of broken systems. What I've recently like think it was the beginning of last year. I found this. I forget what it's called. It's like Asian technique. Like when something breaks in our culture, you throw it away. It's done. Right. But sometimes it doesn't even break. Just by just by new one you say fuck it. Yeah. And there they they repair it with like a thing of like a line of gold. And then now that breakage is part of the history. And what makes that piece unique like a human being like a human being really don't throw humans out? But like there is something another mushroom dot. Did this episode? Brought to you by mushrooms. We're on mush. Yeah. We we should've told I haven't done them in a while. Neither. Yeah. But I just kind of identify that special warm outside of yourself feeling, and we don't have to call the mushroom. But sometimes weird when you're just like we're so cking in metaphors. You know, what I mean, we take it for granted. I always trying to make this point on the gas. It's weird that our feelings are like the rain. You know, what I mean like sometimes you feel like the rain or you feel lonely, and but powerful like the ocean or you feel broken like thing, but with a golden grass, and we're just sort of like, yeah, that's just how it is. It's fucking crazy and poetic and beautiful that we live in a world that how we feel is sometimes found in the macrocosm. Oh, you know, other people. Yeah. And other and it's reflected everywhere. And sometimes you feel like you're the only one going through stuff. And when you don't talk about it. You're lying. Yeah. But like hanging out with Ron funders when I moved here like he used to live around a block from me. And so he invited me division border has house one year you made vision board vision boards, and it was just all adult men making vision board. It was really cool. Like, I normally don't think in those terms just like keep my head down all wrestling magazines, high time. And and then we did it the second year..

"Kia and so I went to visit. I went to pick up some soup from his wife. My aunt my for my dad because my dad was so I took my oldest nephew's come with me. So that way like we can leave Astor just 'cause I just get uncomfortable around always have to pee or something. Yeah. So we go, and she's like she just had it in a container thinking, we'd have to sit and eat soup and talk. So she had an container. My okay, cool. And then like, I don't wanna ask how you're doing. Because obviously something bad happened in your, you know, and so we're leaving God really liked his robe because she's wearing like a coup last rope. She's all my husband's it's my way of being with him. And I'm like. Yeah. And that was me trying to avoid saying something. And I'm seeing topic. I feel like something that we're missing in our society, maybe just as humans or thoughtful humans with brains decides, you know, what I mean? Yeah. We've evolved to a point where sort of lost the ability and can freak people out to just like sit and be with something. She's like his my this is my husband's it's my way of being with them. And being like, I wish there was a phrase like I want to be like beautiful, but I also didn't wanna like make everyone cry. Yeah. So I'm just like, okay. Cool. We'll go I'm gonna take the soup. I know. Yeah. Pain. Yeah. Man. It's interesting. And like when is the move to like Dow when you want me to help you get in touch with your pain. And when is it better to help me avoid your pain with you? Well, would you? I mean, it's interesting because growing up poor I feel like a lot of times you don't leave space for sadness or happiness like I'm just keeping moving moving. So like you like skimming on top of the lake and you like minimize so much shit. And then it just compounds in this weird way right to where like you get that anxiety. You get that awkwardness right with other people, really interesting. It is sort of a leisure activity. I want you to be like, you know, I felt a little violated, you know, to like boundaries weren't respected. Like that is something that you have more time to think about when you're not wondering. Yeah. What what kind of poor were you? Well, I say I say like we grew up at the top of the lower class like we straddled like lower class middle class like most of. Upper lower class. Yeah. Never hear upper lower good album. It's an it's an it's a weird space because like you're still in poverty, you don't be complacent. And you're close enough that it's like enticing to get to that middle class. Yeah. Lower middle-class. Yeah. But you're always like we would get there. But then like we'd get braces. Or like, some something major enough would come up that you're right on the line right on the line? Another good. So and so like, you know, once the mic my dad worked at the steel moment, I'm working nonprofits still mill close or started getting stressed out the personal life start collapsing. So like now instead of a two parent home steel mill closed I'm scenes y'all like I I grew up in Lorraine, Ohio, which is like a half hour west of Cleveland, and it was used to be very vibrancy..
