Innovating How You Lead
"So I wanNA jump right in. I would love it if you would explain what is innovative leadership. So the idea. For me, personally as I've worked with some a lot of leaders who are highly successful and unfortunately, many leaders because they're so busy working on the work of the business, don't step back and innovate or update how they lead. They update their awareness of the technology. They use of the products and services of supply chain management they they get smarter on a regular basis about a lot of content in the business, and yet as leaders are primary role is leading obviously. And yet many of us don't invest the time and energy to to think about how the field of leadership is evolving, and how we must evolve to match the changes in the outer world and. My exam or yeah, my example, I guess, is we. We wouldn't none of us carry a flip phone anymore. I'm guessing or you're listening to PODCASTS A and yet. There are leaders who still think about leading the way they did when they under flip phone, and what what is heartbreaking for me as to see people who were recruited as absolute rockstars, and then they're asked to exit, because they are no longer rockstars, their leadership skills have depreciated while they're working incredibly hard for the organization, and they are left without employment and the need to. Retool to find the next high impact role. I would think they. Would struggle with realizing. Why they were let go. Is that fair? In some cases, yes. Having Lost a job a twenty years ago when our I was in the utilities industry when we went through the Enron crisis animal. My business was I worked for a large consulting firm and my role was helping set up trading floors. Losing that job to me, even though I wasn't. Involved in creating this crisis was blue devastating. Even for people who are incredibly introspective, it's hard to hard to figure out what's me. What's them what do I need to change? Struggling with the sense of broken, versus it wasn't my fault, so so once someone is invited to exit for whatever reason and I'm sure. Many of your listeners are either the ones doing the inviting which I have also done to come an alumni of the firm, and then having at happen is just at least for me. One of the most emotionally difficult challenges I've had a and so offering people a proactive path that increases their probability of being successful. Is Part of what we offer I don't I don't like to come at it from the negative, but but in a world where we have constant disruption, we have machine learning robotics Continual change in mergers and acquisitions, most of us will face a significant change in employment, and for many it'll be against their will. So how do we increase our own probability of success and increase the probability of the organization's success? Right and that's that's the work we offer. So how is? Innovative leadership different from traditional leadership. Great question so. The example of what we're seeing now the many leaders that got us to where they are traditional leaders, and they have done an exceptional job of it in the US and globally creating an economy that has has. Delivered, US most of us a lifestyle that our grandparents couldn't imagine. What we're talking about in the the leadership, literature is called Post. Conventional are beyond the conventional leadership. And it invites leadership. Leaders to bring on board things we know about, but don't necessarily integrate so becoming more emotionally intelligent. What does that mean for how I hey? What does it mean for how I collaborate it? In the midst of the black lives matter context post pandemic, we are facing how we deal with diversity

I've always been into arden and music and we're going to barnes and noble. Go to the book section of Shark from section, dislike pulling open some of these books by. Any LIEBOWITZ avenue iron earning Penn. Nigel Perry in the beginning was a huge. He has some great photo books and just being enamored with all the faces in. Just. The idea that I had a book in front of me that I knew was of people who are famous, and I had no idea how it was compiled by one person or purpose I just thought the images were selling interesting and I had to spend gravitating towards photography at that time of my life, my early teens and I. Just was the moment where. The rest of my life figuring that out How how do I do this thing? and that was that was really the springboard in. It's all been one kind of pretty much straight path since then to here I ended up. Working for a lot of those people for for any Liebowitz soon, the best photographers in the world is there assistance and that's how I learned to. How and Every step along the way man from college into interning into assisting into shooting and a struggle between us ASEAN shooting, and in the beginning of my career. It's all has been A. Reinforcement of kiss is something that I love to do so. That's the origin story, and now I'm here. It's been about about five years six years since I started being a fulltime freelance, photographer and I'm still still loving it. You know I get to meet the coolest people and I get to photograph people that are really accomplished end really are changing world in. Highly influential ways in the ability to stand in front of then, and and have a couple of minutes of their time, and really kind of be able to put that experience and transforming into art is deputy I do it. I love that man. What a great answer and you! You hit it right on the head. A lot of people say that the the. One of the the benefits of being a photographer is the camera and a lot of ways access your passport into situations that ordinarily wouldn't have any access to or access to people you know at the same time, which is which is really cool. I'm one of the. There's a million things to talk to you about so I'm going to try to I'm GONNA try to keep it focused. But you mentioned any Liebowitz we here. We are name all the time you know mostly in the contract fully. Yeah mostly in the context of accomplished photographer kind of the gold standard for you know if you get up to the Anti Lebron Woods level. Now you're real photography. Well, pass your science your Rockstar at that point. So how is it? How is it working for somebody with that much talent? That you know what? What does the day in the life? Look like for an assistant. That's assisting for someone like Ami. Well there's different levels right of. Sutri, for someone like anti. She has her full-time people who are on salary or their day in and day out, and then she has any number level of prevents assistance that are coming in on a needed basis in all the way down through interns who are also there for a short period of time, but day in and day out, and so it depends on where you are in. That tree is a freelance assistant I got to Canada's coming in come out of a couple of shoots and. You know for me. It was A. It was a fantastic experience. I think that. I was the best photo system I was going to be by the time I got to work with Anne which was very good for me, because I was one of six assistance on on set, and I was the. Fourth or third on the hierarchy, so I was getting asked do stuff that was not super complicated like setting up stands like setting up lights. Things that were very easy to me because I had done them thousands of times before so I was able to do that job very well without putting a ton of my brain power into a per. Se So I was able to at the time. Really kind of visualize taken everything that was happening on set. An. That was a that was awesome for me. I really enjoyed my experience You know I think it's different. It's different. Bene- first assistant as well as not to any and I. Set of experience because experiences because there's so much more. Weight on your shoulders and so much more responsibility on your shoulders to your part of the team on a day to day. Basis on, and you learn a ton doing matt to. I mean if I ever was the for going to become the first assistant Liebowitz. I probably would still be there now. I would be here so I would have a different path. so I'm really happy with what I ended up doing. There I ended up learning so much. I learned what it takes to. Have the quality that she has and the quantity of output that she has which is unrivalled in industry. I mean people. People have their qualms about her work on some people love it. Some people dislike it. I, consistently say no one else in the world is putting out the cover of vogue. The cut the cover of Vanity Fair and a Nike campaign all in a three week period it just she's the only person that can do it on because of the because of the infrastructure that she's built, and that was the biggest thing. I walked away with I I when I stopped to six Randy I said to myself right then and there. I'm not any LIEBOWITZ right now, but I'm GONNA I'M GONNA make my operation. Move as if I were and it might it might be only a tenth of the size, but I'm going to operate using the same structures and the same kind of

Song of the Summer 2020: Which Hit is the Early Favorite?
"So Keith yes. The Fourth of July holiday is like right around the corner here in the US and Many people getting ready for some. Socially distance gatherings and picnics and barbecues and Ho- downs and all that fun Shannon. Shenanigans Yeah all responsibly quarantine of course We thought it'd be good to to kind of devote this episode instead of the weekly charts to topic near and dear to my heart. Song in the summer. It is near and dear to your heart. I love talking about song in the summer. I've written lot about it over the years I. WE'RE GONNA. Talk about. Your world how billboard ranks the top songs of the summer. In terms of our charts department, and then we'll dive into the rundown of V number one song in the summer for each year from two thousand nine through twenty, nineteen. And then we'll discuss some predictions for what could be the top song of this summer of two twenty, twenty Jason loves talking about songs of the summer, but somehow I've yet to convince him to join the Movement for other seasonal lists and rankings such as the top winter jams. Or the most awesome autumnal ditties I just think why Jason. You don't like anything but songs of the summer why? I do like song of the fall. That's my number two just because I kind of like you know last year you had a song like the weekends. Heartless commander November, and it's just like a good fall song like it's. It's a little chilly It's a little bit more introverted but the thing about the song of the summer is that it's it's iconic. What we mean when we talk about song in the summer. A song that you associate with a specific time in your life, a song that is ripe for partying and gatherings Of course during summers, where such things are allowed and you know but anyway I. Love It. Let's get into it. Let's on this summer I some finer points on. Al Billboard actually compiles its annual song. The Chart the charts which you can actually find on billboard right now is a running tally that tracks the most popular songs based on cumulative performance on the weekly billboard, hot, one hundred chart, and that's from memorial. Day through Labor Day here in the United States and this year those charts encompass the charts dated June sixth through September fifth, and at the end of the. The season, the top song of the summer, basically is the top song in terms of overall performance on the weekly, hot one hundred during that span of time, and will reveal that shortly after Labor Day, right now to babies, rockstar featuring roddy rich is number one on the twenty twenty song of the summer chart while in the mix in the top ten or songs like Megan, these million savage between beyond say and the weekends blinding lights. Yes, so we'll get to this year, and and how this is a more competitive year than than some years past including last year. But now that we know how we would determine the song of the summer for the year. Let's go back in time Keith. And revisit what the number one song! The summer was for each year from two thousand nine through twenty nineteen. I WANNA. Point out that we actually have a song of the summer determined for every year. The hot one hundred has existed all the way back to nineteen fifty eight, so if you want to check out every number one. For, each summer, every song of the summer back from Nineteen fifty eight to twenty, nine, hundred nine. You can do that on Dover Dot Com. Just do a Google search for summer songs, nineteen, thousand, nine, hundred nineteen. It'll pop right up. You'll be good to go tested at actually works. That's. It's better than saying. GO TO BILL DOT COM slash chart dash beat slash one five dash two three. You know it easier. It's easier to do it this way. Well I up. We've got two thousand nine song of the summer. It's the black-eyed peas I. got a feeling. Let's take a listen to a little bit of it now. That tonight it's GonNa, be. Good I. In. The summer of two thousand nine belonged to the PS. They actually have the numbers, one and two biggest songs of the summer that year as boom boom POW was number two. The two tracks were so huge in two thousand nine that I got a feeling spent fourteen weeks at number one on the hot one hundred and actually replaced boom boom POW at number one, which itself had spent twelve straight weeks atop the list so. So from the April Eighteenth, two thousand nineteen chart through October, tenth two, thousand, nineteen, hot, one hundred chart, the PS were number one every single week with either boom boom, POW, or I got a feeling which is pretty insane.
New app is 'like a Pandora for food and drink'
"Business rockstars and joining me today is Sir the CEO and founder of the Jews that give us a quick elevator pitch what's true that chart so it shoes essentially combines the functionality and filter of and helped a yelp type app with the curation and specific user information that you have from something like a Pandora for food and drink so it's going out at night and this thing will basically be a combination of yelp and Pandora to help me figure out my favorite places exactly so it's all curated internally we have food bloggers chefs wine somebody dies from critics to provide the content and that's the initial stock portfolio and the spot start to adapt to you as a user over time I love that what is been the hardest part so far about getting this thing off the ground so the most difficult part I think what is the gap between you know you need generally you need funding to get users just to get the word out there marketing user acquisition and you usually can need users to get funding so that chicken and the egg problem is something that I know a lot of entrepreneurs space but I think the biggest challenge was trying to arrange how to have revenues early on so we can break that that cycle so how are you guys able to get funded without having that so we actually we were in the fortunate position where we were able to bootstrap and self fund for quite a long time both myself my co founder you know came from investment banking backgrounds and just took our savings and popped it into so it was definitely a high risk but we really believe in what we're doing we love the app and when we were saying that users are loving it as well that's what made us really keep moving forward and working on as much as much as we can how many iterations of the app have you guys had a great so far how many give us the number so I would probably say originally we were let's say by may we're at ten iterations and this is just you know updates with debugging new features new design user interface and then now now we've just been going through fast growth periods where we just keep tweaking and updating every week so we're probably around thirty right now how different is the actual end product that you guys are using now versus when you first started very different so we actually went through it in February so we realize that what users really really loved was the spot discovery and that was this just a specific user name question of where do I go at seven PM on a street corner I want tacos what's actually good and so we developed the apps specifically tailored that the answer to that question whereas before we were kind of trying to do two things at once we're doing both spot discovery and allowing people to connect with their friends and plan the outing which we realize that the actual trouble of people trying to plan with their friends was not the fact that you know they needed to send a bunch of messages it was the fact that they just didn't know where to go the other problem is really just one question and that was the payment that we moved into this I think that allowed us to really refine the app at all of the information that we needed we develop the filter where you can filter by what spots are your friend's favorite so if you trust the specific friend you can view all of their favorites on the app you no longer have to call them up and say where should I go for wine or wish I guess for tacos so my question for you is the hardest thing when having an app is getting users to download it and then getting those users to consistently use the app so how are you guys overcoming them so actually for us just because and the elevator pitch I guess doesn't even do it as much justice because the design itself is just users love it it's very easy to use it's similar to Spotify's original mood menu set up so they immediately get it we don't even have to do a lot of user education soaring gauge mint rates are very very high however getting the word out there is is the biggest challenge I think for us by far and we were fortunate that we've since we launched the latest version of the end of June we've had about nine under percent organic growth of just people spreading the word we got some the good credit press coverage so people are just hearing about it so those are the more organic ways and then we're doing a lot just get users in the most free way possible so I think yeah we're we're getting pretty scrappy in terms of how to how to go around just get users or even having you know part of our team do shifts and actually deliver food from some of the delivery apps and job and choose download cars back and that works wonders yeah it's really girl in marketing so so you you said you start this with your friends right so I I was the original founder I was in London at the time when I thought of the idea and your brother was in the shower with it now post appendicitis surgery so I don't know medication helps you yeah the medication and I guess it worked quite well if you are using your future success depended on it yeah exactly yeah I was kind of funny because my hospital room I was in London and it was just full of like thirty girls the nurses that even know what was what was going on there like I'm is it a party in here and everyone is like where should we go after you get out trying to text me like let's go meet for coffee so that idea kind of came up as a problem too I don't want to take I don't have time to text everyone let's just find a spot
Now is the Time to Upgrade Your Team, Training, and Talent
"Hey Guys Daniels already here with leadership. Man You talk about crazy times. One of the things that is just staggering and certainly unprecedented right now is the unemployment rate in our country. And if you just see that headline? Anything oh my gosh. This things going down the tubes. What are we going to do? Well that's one way of looking at it, but. Another thing is if you're a leader if you're if you're someone in charge of building a team if you're in charge of running a business. Unemployment could actually be a blessing in disguise. I just had to lay off my team I mean. What do you mean a blessing in disguise on tardy? This is bad times out here. Look I. Get it, I understand it's difficult in for some businesses. It's the worst year you've ever had and it's GonNa. Take A to recover. I, just? WanNa. Call Your Vision to think about in five years from now. What will be true at that point that you're harvesting? The fruits of CGU planted in the season in the middle of the storm. If you've got an vision on when we get through the storm and we start to rebuild, you can do some things right now. That are going to set you up for success to come back stronger and better than ever. Here's what I'm talking about. Right now, yes, unemployment is at a record high, and that also means that there's talent sitting on the sidelines. That hasn't been there before. This isn't unemployment at record. Levels of people who are not worth hiring. There's a lot of people that are brilliant Rockstar team members. You know we talk about Hungary humble and smart the ideal team player. There's ideal team player sitting out there right now. This is a weird way for there to be this much unemployment because it's not a, it's not an indication of their performance. It's people. Get fired because they're doing jobs. Their companies got shut down. So. This is a time to start thinking about upgrading your team this a time to be having these conversations. I've had a few people in my community here locally that they've been at a company where their companies shut down, and they're probably not coming back or whatever and I'm going Oh. Wow. Disguise on the street now. This guy is a free agent and I've been having some of these conversations even with my leaders going. Hey, we should talk to this I. Know them through. A mutual friend or I know them from Church or I I've been in the business community here locally there a stud. They just happen to be in a situation where companies shut shutdown. If we can pick them up in the season, we can upgrade our team. There's a chance to upgrade your team. There's also a chance to get rid of the whiners that you're going. If your team right now is wine, and they're bottom feeders, and you've been thinking. Oh, man, I got a bunch of donkeys. Instead of thoroughbreds listen, you should not get through this whole thing without having a one hundred percent of your team being thoroughbreds, because there's thoroughbreds out there right now, looking for opportunity, and if you've got an opportunity, you go well. Hey, I'm not hiring right now. How am I GONNA? Pull this off. Look I get. You may not be hiring today. But it doesn't mean you can't start having conversations with people. For roles that you're going to hire maybe ninety days, maybe one hundred and twenty days start putting a business plan together for when this thing comes back. Have these people in the queue have the interview process already in motion and then just tell them look when we come back. It's going to be six months. Can you wait six months? Maybe they can, because they don't have another opportunity right now. Then in six months from now you come online with his new deal with a new team and you've got a stronger foundation to build from. Then you had going into this. Right now you can upgrade your team. You also upset your training. Guys. I don't know about you, but I always think I should be training my team better. You know there's so many things I feel like our team wants to know I feel like our team wants us as leaders to slow down and teach them how to do their job better. Our team wants to be set up for success and one of the the limitations for us as leaders is time you know we're in meetings and we're working on building the business working on things for marketing for customers and managing the the sales activities, and all the stuff reading the financial reports and I don't know about you guys, but I usually look up sometime Friday afternoon having set off in the week with intentions of doing some kind of training for the team and the whole week goes by. And, it didn't happen. This is a time that you can really get your training together. If you get more time on your hands, and in your teams there and you can send videos and do the zoom stuff or whatever you guys are doing right now. You can whiteboard out. What do I really want to train our team on how to do their jobs well? The history of the story of our company, our core values our mission statement how to be ideal team players. We've got an opportunity at a moment in time right now to get all of our training in place all of our documentation, and maybe even record some videos and send it out though I mean what if you sent a five minute video to your team every two or three days right now because you have the time to work on building that video, and then it's an archive, then every team member that you hire going forward now. You've got this repository of all his great training documentation. You can upgrade your training process right now. This is an opportunity to do that. Thirdly. You can upgrade your talent. Guys talents our muscles. We grow just like going to the gym and growing our muscles in our physical bodies. We can grow our mind. We can grow our competencies I'm such a fan of this idea of transformation, and I am so glad I'm not the same leader that I was ten years ago, because through the power of transformation through the power of personal development and reading and learning and studying. I can become a new leader I can become a better leader I can grow to a new capacity, and so this is a time to look at your team and go. Our team really needed. Improve on right now. What are the talents and competencies that? If our team got better at these things, because well, they've got some time on their hands. I don't want him just sitting on Netflix's all day.

Desert Island Recordings - Iron Curtain Innocence by Bobb Trimble
"As idiosyncratic and hyperbolic as we absolutely always are. We certainly are not the only Bob Trimble apologists in the realm of music writing a quote from the Private Press Bible. Acid archives starts with this description by Aaron Molinski on Bob Tremble. I will make the bold claim that Bob Trimble's to albums are the best self released albums not just of the eighties and not just the psych genre but possibly in all of rock. Bob's music is able to bring a listener into a new and bizarre world in mere seconds while both his first album and his second harvest of dreams our other worldly masterworks of detached Psychedelia today with to focus on the first. There are so many amazing private press albums that are true. `Isolation Records Nineteen Eighties Iron Curtain. Innocence is a perfect example for this case study because of its utterly unique sound and the decent amount of information available about the record which helps us a lot. It's a story that can be told with realistic honesty whereas so many other private press record just rumors and tall tales. In the beginning Bob Dribble owned just three rock and roll records the Beatles second album more of the monkees and dot records oldies collection featuring the Classic Sea of love by Phil Phillips. These record carry a weight that would mold trimble sound the Beatles buoyant harmonies the Monkees Mirth full melodies Phillips's soul-stirring reverb growing up in central Massachusetts. Trimble would eventually play in bands in high school and would end up on the outskirts of Forster's worm town scene which was primarily known for punk music. Trimble worked at his dad's bicycle shop in poured all his money into studio recordings and eventually into getting his records pressed Iron Curtain. Innocence started its journey. When Trimble wrote a song that he thought would make for great single one mile from Heaven. He firmly believe it would be the track that brought him recognition. It was also one of the first songs he'd ever written. He went to a nearby studio called country. Thunder sound and recorded a couple of versions of the song a longer and more complete version and a shorter more radio friendly version. The song he recorded for the B. side was called killed the hands of an unknown Rockstar. When Trimble received the completed forty five. He was disappointed with a hollow tinny sound and decided not to release it dismayed he thought about hanging it up and stopped recording for about a year stating. I just didn't think my songs were original enough and different enough boy howdy. He came back with a redefined vision of originality. He went to a couple other studios and recorded an album's worth of material iron curtain. Innocence was recorded without a band. Despite the violent reactions being credited on the record sleeve is just Bob with a couple of the studio engineers helping out on Bass and drums the recording is rudimentary and Lo fi. But at the same time it is distinctly layered with Beatles soundtracks and sprinkles of Mug embedded throughout. The engineer seemed to be excited to fully humor all of the bizarre studio request as a break from their normal home desires of the usual patrons where the drums are obviously vanilla. The Guitar is very distinct. For young. Inauspicious musician Trimble. Truly had a remarkable guitar sound that is fully realized in instantly recognisable which is certainly an exception from the typical boilerplate instrumentation and most private press records. Hell even a lot of the major label stuff too for that matter. Triples voice is without question the most enticing factor on the record a Martian Siren. Song that has a exotic glassy feminine presence. That soaks a room in dizzying desperation. Reality Tearing beautiful for certain but also very cold it's much closer to Marc Bolan. Warbling as he's using his feather boa to restrict his air pipe during auto erotic fixation or severe trying his hand at opera than it is to any of his beloved sixties Silky vocalist. The lyrics reek of loneliness. But in a clove smoking teenage poet sense more than a man at the end of his rope. Tired tropes and tiny fragments of generic psychedelic. Forgeries are present but still packing a motive punch when joined with Eleftherios. Voice and the scintillating guitar originally called World of Lies Trimble settled on the title Iron Curtain. Innocence as a on the ever presence of the Cold War a theme. That never seems to come up in the actual lyrics. Trimble had five hundred. Copies pressed bought the first three hundred and disbursed them as best he could. By hawking them at local record shops getting them in the hands of college radio deejays and giving them to friends and Family
One DAY at a time?? How about 10 MINUTES at a time!?!

Free Life the point of giving up drinking is to live better in be happier and I will certainly give you all the insights I have after many years of sobriety as well as all my mistakes and life lessons drama in trauma and everything else I have. It's an open book around here over the next several weeks. We are going to double down on your recovery with double episodes. Yes you guys. I'm so excited about this. You will get the regular episode on Wednesdays or if you're an inner circle member you get episode access on Tuesdays. So you'll get that regular episode and then we're going to do a bonus episode every Friday. I'm going to have worksheets cheat sheets and work books and guides just to double down on your recovery and double down on the support you get from me. So let's double down and today we're GonNa talk about something that's a bit cliche and we're going to break it down and get a little deeper into the concept and how to practice it on a daily basis you hear it all the time especially for those of us. That are twelve steppers. It's all over the rooms of alcoholics anonymous. One day at a time I remember in the beginning of my recovery. I didn't really understand a lot of the cliches in the rooms. There are all of these weird. One liners that people repeat. And if I'm honest I didn't know what any of the men like. That's just the truth. I would just kind of smile and nod because I had no idea what these people were talking about but I totally get it now and I understand that. The one liners are just a short hand version of the long versions right. These are one liners that can throw out in. We understand the bigger meaning behind them. We're going to talk about one day at a time and what it means how it can be helpful and how to break down even smaller in those moments of crisis but first before we take that deep dive. Let's talk about a few things going on around here in the crazy busy week. I've had doing some major collaborations with other recovery rockstars first off. I got to be on the recovery.

World way back in the day before like everybody and their dog had a blog and a podcast so it was a long long time ago and and my blog was super popular and I love to write but I wrote a short story and she condensed it down to fit instagram size which is just a few paragraphs and I was her featured fierce female Friday last week.

You guys none of this is perfect and all those hangups that we get all those fears fear of failure fear of judgment. Whatever when you think about those things that you're putting off starting whether it's business or your sobriety or maybe it's making a real commitment to your sobriety and you're putting it off because you have all these fears going on ripe and you're fearful of what other people are GonNa think of you and your fearful fearful you're not gonna be able to do it and Blah Blah Blah the truth.

‘Bachelorette’ Hannah Brown apologizes, says she has 'no excuse' for singing the N-word during Instagram Live video
"A former bachelorette is in some hot water for dropping a racial slur on social media Hannah brown is facing backlash for singing lyrics to debate these rockstar which includes the N. word even though the video has either expired or been taken down it still has made the rounds on social media and read it she apologized on Instagram live after first playing off the many fans
"And that's what you hear at the beginning of the cords is my grand piano which which I purchased a few months after becoming a Dad. So some of my favorite memories with my girls are attached to these two pianos from Holding them when they were babies In learning to play his song with one hand or as they got older they sit on my lap and play songs with me Into now they'll sit on their own in played little melodies that they've made up in. It's really sweet so it just makes me really happy. These pianos are are in the song About daughters so back when I recorded my voice for this song actually held my daughter. Lily Who is only a few months old at the time Through some of my takes and the reason for that was to just kind of remind myself as I was singing. Who the song is for? So it's not allowed but if you listen closely you can. You can hear some of Lee's contributions in the in the background vocal recording on foot in one of the many guests of getting to make music and working from home is that from the womb and onwards my daughters have been surrounded by music Though they would definitely prefer the music of frozen or pretty much any Disney movie or their recent obsession. Bts every so often they will visit me in the studio and either offer me their thoughts. Kinda like they did a few moments ago in their in their honest review the song and their reactions to a music over the years have been all over the map. And I love that so much. It could be surprising. Thoughts of encouragement. Or telling me how a song makes them feel or full on dance parties or blatantly telling me to please turn it off because it makes them sad but usually when they pop into the studio it is to proclaim their their absolute favorite word in the English language in demand snack and lately. They've been surprising. My and I with the with more focused time writing their own songs. And it's really really beautiful to see The idea of rhyme structure all of a sudden forming. And there's just this really incredibly beautiful reckless abandon Kinda. That comes along with their singing. That makes me so happy because they are just one hundred percent in it and not thinking about anything else other than expressing their feelings and songs. And it's so interesting to see their personalities come out in their in their songs. Lilly who's five years old is sometimes shy. And when she sings she belts it out like a like a Rockstar. In Iris. Who's three is our ball of energy and she will sit down at my piano and play the gentlest piano music that anyone has ever heard And I just love hearing their hearts out like that. It truly

It can find her on Lincoln Kelly. Ub TWITTER AT K. L. O. U. B. Y. by the way instagram at Rana Website Ron L. DOT COM Rana. Welcome to the show. Thank you for having me. I'm excited I'm excited to have you on and if so much to cover and I thought I would begin with a question that will hopefully open up a whole different doors. A whole different set of doors. I think is the proper English expression that could potentially walk through. And it's related to a book. This is affective computing crime if. I'm getting any of the pronunciation wrong by. Rosalind Picard A. R. D. How did this book come into your life so I am concerned? I grew up in Cairo and around the Middle East. But at the time this is like nine thousand nine hundred ninety eight. I had just graduated from computer science from the American University in Cairo and my career plan at the time was to become faculty like wanted to teach and so. I knew teach had to do my master's in it was all very calculated and so I was looking for a thesis topic and my fiance at the time went on Amazon and he said Oh. You know there's this really interesting book by this. Mit professor called. Rosalind Picard Called Affect of computing and. We ordered it through Amazon. It took about three months to shift to Cairo. It got held and customs for reasons. I don't really understand but eventually I got hold of the book and I read it and I you know. I think it's safe to say that it changed my life because so so the thesis in the book is that computers need to understand human emotions just the way people do and I read the book and I was fascinated by this idea and it you know I made that my research topic and it became my obsession and it just really changed the trajectory of my life. What besides the thesis in the book had such an impact on your was it just that that world view that perspective or was there more to the book or more to the author. Yeah a great question. Soon let's talk about the author. I so rise is one of the few and I mean this was true back then. It's still true today. She's one of the few kind of female you know. Computer Science Machine Learning engineers professors in the space. And you know I kind of learned about her over the years I've eventually actually. She ended up being my co-founder many years later. But there's a story around that but but essentially I was just fascinated by her and she you know she's a mom she's three boys. I just thought she was like a Rockstar. So that was kind of one part of it but just the way she wrote the book and how she you know. I'm very expressive as a human being and I just really like. I think emotions really matter and are in the way we communicate. Non Verbally is very important and it struck me that when we think of technology that piece of how we communicate is completely missing and I was like. Oh yeah like it seems so obvious so I just got fascinated by the thesis. I got fascinated by the implications. Like what happens when technology becomes kind of clued into how we that's going to open up a whole new world of possibilities and I was intrigued by that. So let's travel back to that point in time you were with your then fiance and this book is ordered at the time. You're planning on becoming a teacher professor. Why were you on that track? To begin with I mean was it. Take us back to Egypt at that time were there. Many women striving to be faculty members in similar departments. I'm assuming computer science or or perhaps it was a different department. Maybe could tell us more. Yes so I went to the American University in Cairo and I study computer. Sciences an Undergrad. At the time most of the faculty were were guys except for one female faculty Dr Hulda Husni which became my role model and my mentor. And I just wanted to be like like she was awesome. She was you know. Very smart. Very approachable very fashionable. And I was like Ooh I like that and and I just wanted to be like her and so devised a plan also geek. I'm a geek and I'm proud of it so I I kind of devised a plan. I was like okay. I'll graduate top of my class which I did and then I was like okay. I'll go get a masters and PhD abroad. Because that's what you do and then come back and I'll join joined the faculty and so at the time because I was getting married to my fiance and he had a company based in Cairo coming to the. Us was not an option because it was way too far so he was like a let you go study in the UK. Because it's close enough so I applied to Cambridge and got in. That was kind of the impetus for going abroad and doing this. Like focusing on this research. So when did you then end up going to the? Us was that a difficult conversation with your family or your then-fiancee walk us through how that happened because it doesn't sound like that would have been just a hop skip and a jump to second conversation so walk us through that experience. Yes okay so then. I moved to Cambridge Right Cambridge University in the UK not not Cambridge Massachusetts and I will Cambridge Cambridge original Cambridge And we got married so basically I got married and got the scholarship to go study at Cambridge and my house. So He's now my husband right. Well he's my ex now but at the time he was my husband he was very supportive. He was like you gotta go. This is your dream. I'll support you will have a long distance relationship now. My family. My parents and his parents were horrified. They were like what you can't do that so so I do like to give him credit for for for making this happen and being supportive so I ended up in Cambridge and he was in Cairo and we did that for five years and towards the end of my PhD Ros Picard was visiting Cambridge UK. To give a talk there. And I ended up meeting her in person and we totally hit it off and she said why. Don't you come work with me at MIT as a post doc and I was like Oh my God. This is like a dream come true. I've been following you like forever and this is why you know like I told her my story. And then I caveat it I said that just you know I've I've been married for the last five years and have had a long distance relationship so I have to go back to Cairo otherwise and I actually really said that. I said otherwise in Islam because I'm Muslim my husband can marry up to four women and if I don't show up eventually he'll just like Mary more women so I said half jokingly right so she was like that's fine just like commute from Cairo and I commuted from Cairo Boston for a good a good three or four hundred years going back and forth between MIT and Cairo. How often did you go back and forth. Or how often did he go back to Cairo? Maybe is a better. What else get so. Initially I would spend a couple of months in Cairo and then go spend like a few weeks and Boston and then I would move with my kids to Boston over the summer so summer break we just all go there and so initially. That was okay. So this was between two thousand and six to two thousand and nine was okay Things began to kind of really follow parts when I decided to start the company so we started to get a lot of interest in technology and displaying. It they really encourage you to spin outright. So in two thousand nine united started affect. Eva and I was literally spending two weeks in Cairo in Boston. Two weeks or two weeks in Boston. It was insane and that was when like just goes out of balance everything was out of bounds unless tough it was tough and and and you know. I'm divorced now. Imagine how that didn't go very well. It was just it was I think. In retrospect it was not a very healthy lifestyle. And I I. I wouldn't want to be in that place again. I wouldn't want others to be in that. I talked publicly about that time yet. Let's let's hop around chronologically a little bit. We're GONNA come back of course to starting the company and that decision but for people who don't have any real firsthand exposure to the Middle East much less. Egypt for instance What was it like growing up in in Egypt and based on at least some of my reading you for instance wore a hit job for quite some time. We're not talking short period of time. Maybe you could also speak to that. Yeah yeah and it sounds like you've spent some time in the you've you've you've been to Jordan. It's time in Jordan of spent some time in a few places in the Middle East but not in Egypt never met each and when I was we chatted a little bit before start recording only have a few words here and there in Arabic but it's Levin Arabic right. It's it's what what you'd run across in Jordan or or the Lebanon and I remember though having many people recommend that I not study the sort of standard Arabic textbook Arabic but that I study Egyptian Arabic because all of the as they put all the entertainment and movies that I might WanNa consume would-be an Egyptian Arabic. Needless to say I didn't get that far but I haven't spent any time in Egypt. Well your Arabic spreading goods and you're right about Egyptian accent. That's kind of the most common but but I think the key thing is like there's no one Middle East. There's no one form. I grew up in a family. That's kind of an interesting way quite conservative but also quite liberal so my parents were very pro education. They scientist the They put all their money towards our schooling and they made a point during the summers that we travel abroad and experienced kind other cultures. And I think that's why like I was so comfortable moving from one country to another and ending up in the United States. Your parents do certain interject. But what is your parents do professionally okay. So my parents met. So my dad taught computer programming in the seventies and my mom was probably the first female programmer in the Middle East. He attended his class and he hit on her and they ended up getting married so so I guess I should give them a little bit of credit for ending up. Being a computer signed sub. Sure they had something to do with that. That's so so they both. My mom was a computer programmer at the Bank of National Bank of Kuwait. So we were in Kuwait for a while and my dad is. He's always worked in technology and culturally. What was it like where you grew up Or or within the family. You said that they were for instance on one hand very lesser with the right a cosmopolitan. Perhaps in their perspective and Dr Related to education and and what what were the other ingredients in the household there was there's definitely like clear gender role so even though my mom worked her entire life. it was always. She was not allowed to ever talk about her job post. You know she would leave work at three. Pm Be home like whatever for pm when we got back from school and that was it. She was never allowed to take a conference call at home. The evening never allowed to travel for work and I didn't realize that until I was an adult like I just assumed this was the way it was but it did hamper her career progression and it was this implicit understanding. That's does your. Oh this is my role and we all stick in our lane so that was interesting We were for example. I have two younger sisters.
Ding Dongs in the Way
"Book back to almost famous minute. Where we're discussing. The two thousand Cameron Crowe Film almost famous. One Minute at a time. I'm Eric Nash. From feels like weezer foresight from. Let's say edge of tomorrow minute. Mcc pleasant From the World. I'm a comedy writer and Just elated welcome. Suzy glad to have you on my. I think I became most aware of you at least kind of recently from a star wars minute and and then then even recently. You're on bull. Durham in it. I got I am tearing up the minute scene. Yeah it's pretty great. You're knocking out a wide range of genres to hear from. Yeah yeah to the sports to the Rock Rock Music Rock Music David. This is your first time with us too. I shouldn't they certainly shouldn't forget you but you're kind of our our unofficial co host happening. He's cuppers minutes that we're going to have you. Yeah good good to be here Big Fan of this movie some. I'm happy to do as much. Co host duties. You need me for saying yeah thank you. Yeah we always have. We always have either of you back For other minutes but this man is meant forty six week and it starts with Russell getting electrocuted and ends with Marc Maron yelling at the band in the electrocution scene man. That's pretty grisly. I think Russell does a pretty good job of well not Russell. But you know that actor's name thank you. Yeah it seems to try and say it disappears from Ed. Bill does a good job of making me feel like he is a real lump of meat that just got cooked on a state of man. It's it's disturbing Yanni really keeps it up to. I mean it's there's there's parts during the sped next to especially Where he just he just really continues to be really out of it really well that they didn't know one called it an ambulance. That's buried the seventy lake. We're like mine. You're just got electrocuted a little bit. Because because I've got a little bit of a morbid streak I had to look up other famous onstage electrocutions. Ooh Yeah so Turns George Harrison was electrocuted in the let it be documentary so you can actually watch him put his lips to the megaphone and get like a little shaky doesn't collapse or anything like that but he does sort of back off shows a little bit of visible pain and you can find that clip on YouTube Keith Richards I was thinking I was going to have to wait until Peter Jackson's done here with Dr. Welby reassembling of Lee keeping it in keeping that part. Maybe that'll be the focus of it. Now lose be like the movie where George gets electrocuted Keith. Richards was also electrocuted. But it was much more like what happens on stage here In nineteen sixty five in Sacramento. His Guitar bumped into an ungrounded MIC stand. Apparently sparks flew in. There was a loud bang and the manager actually thought that Keith had been assassinated. They did rush him to the hospital unconscious and heap. He did not wake up until I think it was later that day in the hospital and he woke up and said man that was good. Probably Rush. I think I'll do that. I thought of. I haven't seen a movie since it came out in theaters And so I forgot. I forgot everything because I know a larger memory and yeah so when I watched the minute before I went back in like watch the rest of the movie And I was like Oh if he on drugs flake I was like are they pretending to be elected because he's on drugs like I couldn't remember if there was like a drug thing so anyway but but it makes sense that he gets electrocuted. I guess it's just like because you don't think about rockstars. Getting electrocuted probably happens a lot less than it did in the seventy S or sixty S. Or whatever when you know now that technology is pretty good like but I wonder if anybody has recently only guess you looked it up like actually. Isn't that famous? Still have you for sure there? I mean there's a long string of them from the seventy so it was definitely like a you know we quit and quite figured out how to ground these things yet. like As freely was electrocuted from kiss and he actually wrote a song about it called shock me later on and then but there are actually people who died from electrocution In the seventies. Yeah Yeah let's Harvey from stone. The crows which was sort of a pub rock band in the early Seventies. He died in in Wales from poorly grounded. Mike Electrocution and Keith Ralph. From the yardbirds died in his basement recording studio from an improperly grounded guitar apparently but yet there's actually a kind of a grisly video. You can find of the band. Hot Hot heat Playing an outdoor festival in Ohio. Somewhere in I don't remember exactly what year it was like. Fairly like the twenty tens. I think where the one of the guitar players get electrocuted and collapses and it's very similar to this like no one really realizes what's happened until he's been laying on the ground for a couple of seconds and then you know the music kind of slowly fades out and everyone in the crowd was like what's going on and it so it's it's still sort of a modern problem. I think trying to put on an outdoor show with you know. Weather conditions in long runs of cable across a field and things like that makes it more dangerous. But Yeah Yeah. I didn't realize how dangerous rock and roll lists the threat and there's other I think really good acting and decides besides just Russell Billy's You know I mean there's there's all this confusion is going on you know and then that's that's actually what jeff bb says. Hey what's going on we here? We also hear like this. Maybe I got it from somewhere or some Transcript site whatever but stinking stinking roads you know so. A roads roads fender bass wise at coming roads. Some some kind of Either Anchor Guitar. Some sort is the root. It's like a brand name erodes Oregon too but I didn't see any of that hanging out instead. Yeah and noticed that both Jeff and Russell. Have like to have two microphones on their MIC stand Sort of tied together which was kind of a weird seventies thing that they did do. That was Sometimes if they rip especially if they were recording the show. You'd have one Mike that fed the PA in one that went to the recording stuff But apparently the grateful dead also did this sort of a weird early form of noise canceling because they would they would put their speakers. Grateful dead put their speakers behind them and did a lot of like weird separation so like the base when we came out of this portion and the guitar came out of his portion to train gift. Things a little more dynamic separation but apparently if you put too close together and you do one in positive polarity in one in negative polarity sort of does some fancy noise cancelling thing on really know but apparently is common in the seventy s until we figured out you know plug ins and laptops and things so very cool. I'm writing so much I do have been baby myself. I was GonNa say you wonder if he's ever seen that before but yeah well the the big thing I've seen is that You know it looks. It seems like there's there's a there's a fair amount of duct tape that I think has happened there at at at Russell's microphone and I've seen lead singer do that before I've done sound work with a few bands quite a few years ago. There was one that Kevin just started going crazy with taping like okay. If you want to do that you're that that's interesting. I wouldn't at seems unsafe. Well I don't know. Duct tape is Great. I guess no don't don't don't know absolutely. I never thought I came from the south. Everything's held together with duct tape. I'm the other thing that that that's at. The very beginning of it is the that the plumbing song is ending. I mean it's not really ending. That's not supposed to end but it's ends because of everyone leaving their instruments in running towards wrestling then than certainly away getting off the stage but You know in the draw. I think in a normal fashion. I think the drums are kind of the one that kind of goes along. The drummer can just be on his own groove and I mean he's sexy Griffin centrally and. Yeah he and he can't maybe can't see what's happening sunders obstruction. Yeah Ding dongs. Away can't Ding dongs meaning drums. Let's that's what I'm gonNA call them now. You know what I'm talking about the hidden things drummers love it when you call me being Donner's I think too so. Oh Yeah Yeah. They totally loved that. Because it's very cool in rock and roll.
Why Do We Sing in the Shower?
"I think we can all admit that we've pulled a Paris bueller once or twice while lathered up in the shower. Everyone sometimes grabs a handy bottle of shampoo was an Improv. Microphone and busts out a tune or two. There's just something completely satisfying about singing in the shower even celebrities do it. According to People magazine after Jack Black likes to belt out led Zeppelin and Wycliffe. Sean digs a little bruce springsteen everyone's a rockstar in the bathroom whether you have a voice like aretha Franklin or couldn't carry a melody if it had a handle but have you ever wondered about this phenomenon. Some of US wouldn't see in public if someone paid us. We'll sing in the shower without embarrassment. Believe it or not there is a scientific explanation behind our soapy. Musical stylings first. Let's look at why we're relaxed enough in the shower to bust into song. I think about it. You don't sing when you're sad unless you're singing the blues. Maybe for many people shower times the only time they're alone all day. You're in a warm small safe environment. You're comfortable enough to be in the buff stress literally washes off of you when you relax your brain releases dopamine which can give your creative juices a jump start. Warm waters rushing over you and now you're relaxed and feeling good. It turns out that singing makes you feel even better singing because of the breathing that you put into. It gets more oxygen to the blood. This gives you better circulation. Which in turn improves your body and mood. And because you have to breathe a little deeper to belt out a song you get some of the same relaxation and mind clearing benefits as meditation. Another neat thing. Is that when you're singing? You can't really think about your problems. More stress relief. But the best thing about sending in the shower the acoustics. You couldn't ask for a better sound system than a bathroom because bathroom tiles. Don't absorb sound. Your Voice bounces back and forth around the room before fading away and because the shower is a small space it boosts your voice and even adds a little base making your singing sound more powerful sound bouncing also gives your vocal styling a reverse effect which makes voice hang in the air longer and evens out variations in your singing. I think of it as a primitive auto tune. It makes you sound better than you normally would. Which is a confidence boost? We don't sing in the shower simply because we have that song stuck in our heads. You know the one it turns out. We do it for many reasons. Stress Relief happiness great acoustics or maybe just because we like to hear our own voices no matter what the reason keep it up. It's good for you and if you've never tried it pick a song and put on your own private concert.

Opening Act - Rumors in Rock
"First false rumor. Did you ever hear the rumor about Keith? Moon driving a Rolls Royce into a hotel pool. I've heard a lot of stories about Keith. Moon well. He is the quintessential rock and roll guy and bad boy he definitely collected Nazi memorabilia. He may have bitten. Steve McQueen's Hog and blew up his drums win. The WHO played on the smothers brothers. Comedy Hour. I cannot wait to do his episode I am. I have like four books based on. Keith Moon I am. I am locked and loaded. I Love Keith. He is my soul. Well so those things may be true however there was a rumor that he drove a Rolls Royce into a pool at the Holiday Inn in Flint Michigan on his twenty. First Birthday. This is not true. According to Pete Townsend. The story is actually a combination of two different stories. That has become one not true rumor. So Keith Moon. In one of the stories like one of the incidents he left the Hamburg off of a car and it rolled into a pool which was under construction and to not have any water in hit home. Which would be worse though driving? Dr Into a pool with water or driving a car into a pool without water but he didn't drive the car into that. I'm just like either one either or I'm just saying like it just rolled in on its own. Which would do more damage I think you're pretty much screwed either way fair enough. The cars a loss of it goes near the pool. Yeah Okay and then so the second story that this was combined with to create the not true drove. Rolls Royce. Into a pool was that he charged new car to the band. Who refuse to pay for it. So Moon drove it into a muddy pond in his garden and call the dealer to come pick it up. So it's too true. Stories rolled into one story right. That's not true. Yeah Oh yeah. It's incredible and that's not our last Keith. Moon rumor either. Nope our next one which is true now okay. I should say with the caveat that these are true and false based on articles that we both read and so there might be room for error. So this is just like fun. Yeah it's just fun and it's inauguration. It's yeah just what we found. No one has photographic evidence. It's just fun fun so I hope you guys out. Don't get angry and you're like that never happened or that did happen bub-bubba so like don't don't get mad at us is just this is just meant to be fun and a little bit looser so and just for us to kind of talk off the cuff so Our next one. Which is true. Is All about Ozzy Osbourne. Oh my so ozzy. Osbourne achieved infamy overnight after incident on January twentieth nineteen eighty two in Des Moines Iowa during the height of his drug problem. That is putting it mildly. Ozzy Osbourne was performing when an audience member through a bat on stage. The singer believing that it was rubber and I do believe that he thought it was robbery. I don't think he would have. I believe that too. Yeah bid off its head as a stunt only to find out that the bat was real and alive not only that but as he declares in liner notes to the two thousand two reissue of diary of a madman. The Bat wound up biting him as well which forced him to be treated for rabies. The incident fed his rock madman legend along with the one time that he bit off the head of a dove which basically what happened was when he first met with Columbia records in Nineteen ninety-one. He took a live dub into the meeting with him and bit off the head in front of the horrified executives. Awful yeah so crazy man out. I wouldn't sign him to a record deal yeah. He was also arrested for urinating on. Or near the Alamo. And while on tour with Motley crue he allegedly got into a one upmanship. Dare contest with Nikki. Nikki six and I'm sorry that is at is a contest. I would never even get close to know but he ended up snorting a line of ants better than biting the heads off live animals. I think though no okay. The dove thing is kind of unforgivable. The bad thing is understandable. But you snorted a line of ants would if they were fire ants also. You just have ants in your sinuses now. I'm sad I read that. Oh my God you have to elaborate immediately regretted it I apologize. You should move on move on Thanksgiving on next all right. Here's a good one Kay cass. Elliot choke to death on a ham sandwich. Can We bury this now? Please yeah really not cool. I don't like this lie at all. This rumors terrible are you. Doing Mama Cass. Yes I am all right so this came up. Following a series of sold out gigs. In London Mama Cass retired to her apartment where she died of heart failure on July. Twenty Ninth Nineteen Seventy Four. A rumor spread very quickly that she died from choking on a ham sandwich which is just a horrible thing to say you know yes. She was a little overweight route. So it's believed that the rumor started when Dr Anthony. Greenberg the physician who I examined CASS. After her death wrote she appeared to have been eating a ham sandwich and drinking coca cola while lying down a very dangerous thing to do. She seemed to have choked on her ham sandwich. So so great job Dr Greenberg for that one. But point of fact her autopsy showed that a heart problem leading to heart. Failure was the cause of death not a sandwich or any other item lodged in her throat or trachea. She had actually had very little to eat the day before she died like her stomach was pretty clear. No dead I'm actually going to piggyback and double down on a Mama Cass and Keith Moon. True story with us. They were not but they did die in the same apartment. Yeah rockstars have been taken from US. Way Too young and it just so happens that two brilliant musicians died in the same apartment at the same age of thirty two Singer Harry Nilsson I love. That's my alarm. Every morning I wake up to his song. GotTa get out okay. If you've seen the show Russian dolls you'll know why I wake up to a song every day but He renounced his London flat to friends when he was traveling. And so on June twenty ninth nineteen seventy four Mama Cass of the Mamas. And the Papas was staying in the flat while she was on tour and died of heart failure in her sleep and on September seventh. Nineteen seventy eight Keith. Moon of the WHO overdosed on a sedative in that very same apartment which is eerie because they died in the same apartment under the same landlord at the same age. How crazy is that? That's a little
Sony's Iconic PlayStation 2 Anniversary Will Make You Feel Old
"The. Ps Two was released twenty years ago. This is the twentieth anniversary in Japan. Came out later in North America the twentieth anniversary for the PS two pretty. You Know Important Council the Best Song Council of all time obviously massively influential both good and bad for playstation monasteries. Dvd player ever made. Yeah definitely snuck a few. Dvd's into people's homes. And also I think responsible for a lot that we love about playstation and that led to the Hubris of playstation in the PS. Three era coming off the success of the PS two. But I sorta wanted to talk just at large of this being the twenty th anniversary of its original release. We'll talk more about North America. You feel free to take Loki for a bit. He seems to want to go there. Just what were some of your favorite games on the PS two? What's her memories? Do you have about the? Ps Two that did make it either. A bigger maybe smaller part of your gaming life. Lucie does anything offering well. We're currently updating L. Best playstation two games of old timeless and I wrote the BLURBS for a couple of horror games that have really made that system a very special one for me. One was silent hill to Just because I still believe that is the best Horrigan made. I just think it was the most unnerving realization of of sort of mental anguish. That I've ever seen in the video game. I thought it was an incredible realization of what the original kind of was trying to do. I love the original story about silent. Helter was very much like this is what we always wanted to do. I thought it was weird and bizarre and twisted and kind of made me sick and I loved it so that was that was. I think the playstation to help some really fantastic games is what I'm trying to say. The other one was so hard to explain to people who don't like horror y we get into stuff like this conversation my mom. She goes relation. It's like why do you like? What are you? Put yourself through this? It's great like you get scared roasts down. You're like oh spicy food or hard alcohol stuff wrong with bank. Now I know arisen evil four was of course on other systems as well but I played it on the. Ps Two and for me. That was another game changer. That was my game of all time before bloodborne came along. We don't talk about But yeah it was for me for years before was was the one and I. You know I've I've said I've said this before but resnais will full kind of shocked me in in its openness and I. This is a story that I've told a few times. I forgive me if you've had it but you know when you watch night of the living dead for the first time you see that. Zombie stumbling through the the graveyard in broad daylight and it was just so unnerving because it wasn't broad daylight and it was. It was not bump in the night. It wasn't in the shadowy corner it wasn't like a dimly lit bulb it was it was it was just there and I think what risen even Ford it so well really embraced that tera out in the open where just craziness in a very Over way that was so so very unnerving and of course you know tapped into that horrid Mesquita style of open horrors. Well where it's just suddenly. He's just there with the chainsaw. There's no build up. He's just there no you. You felt like you intruded invaded on somebody else's space it wasn't it wasn't like one of those horror movies where there's something under your bed. Yes leeann shows up in this town and there's like a bunch of people standing around with like some chickens and a cow one of them's like and they start trying to kill you pitchforks genuinely. It's just because it's so just it's so it seems so it's so terrifying because it's almost so anti-climax terrifying they were having a perfectly normal. Spanish parasite festival. Showed up your sheerly jacket with your skype phone. And it was just a wonderful system for games and I will never forget it for that so for me. That's my playstation two memory Max. What about you? Oh metal gear solid two down. I don't know what the summer of two thousand two thousand one would have looked like If there wasn't that demo for M. G. S. two or that was on the horizon around the corner I spent that I've talked about this on the show before. But like I spent most of that summer just just messing around on that tanker mission and just tormenting those poor like Spetsnaz guards and just fighting Olga Gulu Kovic repeatedly And then that final game came out and it's like it's such a I mean it's definitely not what I expected I was. It was not expected to do nude cartwheel's inside a giant super arsenal gear or to fight technical president but there was was it get out its tentacle presents the change we want to see in the world. Yeah that game is like I think it's definitely Pete Kajima but in like a good way And it's weird. How much totally anticipated bizarre information? Warfare and mimetic culture of like. What's the Internet going to do? And then it was like well here. We are I love that. I love that dearly. yeah. I don't know I think that is a beautiful pic. It'll get solitaire is is an incredible game Brian I know you and I had a conversation. You can wash Nigerian dot com about this. But what about for you? What really stands out from the library as a startling gaming memory for you In terms of the Games for me it was definitely the GTE's synonymous with that system. It was one of those things where they they just fell endlessly gigantic and it just fell completely unconstrained in ways that I hadn't really experienced since you know I can't even think maybe like stuff like Mario. Sixty four came close right was it was like playing something where you're like okay. The training wheels are off. I can I can head into this level and I can tackle this anyway. I want just sitting down. Gte and being like. I have one hundred missions to do or or I'm just the devil and I'm going to cause nothing but chaos for hundred hours earlier people with a helicopter. The victimless victimless crime. According to the copy I I just I love that feeling of playing something like San Andreas. And just wrecking show. Like you. Go in your. I often go to the store going to do submissions. And you bump into a one car and some guys like hey and you shoot them. And then a cop's like hey did you see the cop and the forty seconds later. You're like in your boxer shorts on a roof like shooting at tags. Gol Kill all of you like I imagined that methods like where you're just like. Wow this escalated and then you wake up Holly Rolling Camera Spins around. I have no idea where I am now. And you walk back outside and you're like Oh my God that's Weird Hospital Anyway High. Like I love that. There's really nothing else like that. And more and more open world games have have captured that and recapture that. But like that is that is the. Ps Two era for me is playing big crazy insanely violent cinematic rockstar games.

Turn at a company with notoriously arduous working conditions nations. The changes were set to go on august. I according to sources. It's unclear how many people this affects nor weather accents temporary workers at other rockstar studios. We hope hope to get more details from rockstar itself but a company rep declined to comment this is this nevertheless appears to be an improvement studio where fulltime and contract contract workers helping make rockstars big games felt the brunt of the company's culture last october. I can talk about the development across rockstars. Numerous studios highlighted lincoln again is one of the toughest places to work. Lincoln employees had told us that testing that the testing team and we're working mandatory overtime for a year in rockstar confirmed that testers had had been asked to work on evenings and weekends could saku had also reported last year that testers at lincoln weren't allowed to keep their cell phones at their desks.

"rockstar" Discussed on .NET Rocks!
"That looks easy on most people are like N P, what I thought let's actually put it out there on up in a browser. So I set up this code with rockstar dot come is the official Ruxton website, right? Like, but together, the, the documentation the language spec, did some pretty interesting. Thing. So the websites open source as well. It's all in the rockstar Lang Oganization on get hub. And I actually I what I ended up doing was using the get something what you will, to include the main project repo inside the website as a sub fold up because all the specifications or in mock down. And then using Jekyll and give her pages to pause, the mock down into ATM, and publish it. So we don't end up running different versions of the same spec falls stuff, which a little bit of fiddling, but I'm really quite pleased with without elects and stuff. Really, really nice authoring muddle, so. Yeah. And e c we get the I stood up in debt to the half an hour. The party unofficially launched rockstar, one point oh, and the certified rockstar develop a program. Now, this is this is real man come up come up and find me at a conference and show me on your phone that you've written rockstar, and I'll give you a sticker. And I, I have certified rockstar developers stickers. Which, you know that I carry around a bag of these things now whenever we go to events and talk about rockstar and people come up. And you know what I'm that the two things that I wanna get out of this. You know, one of them is, I just want people on the Lincoln endorsing one another as rockstar, developers, absolutely recruiters, stop because it is stupid. And it doesn't get anybody anything is undefined in it's ridiculous. I, I just I want every recruiter to know that if they use the word rockstar that just gonna get inundated by people like us, go numb certified rockstar develop. I'll get my stick sticking getting a job. That's got to be part of the commitment. Right. Is that you bombard your critters with rockstar certification? And why not you know not. I know that we can move onto ninja and wizard in all this other kind of stuff seeing the list of terms, we need to turn making the development languages just to, to puncture this whole process before we go. Can you recite a rockstar app for us? So let me hang on so, so the, the last thing I want to get out of this is I'm interested in, whether it is possible to create an album of songs that are so convincingly lyrical, somebody who doesn't know the joke doesn't realize anything's going. And it's kind of like getting those magazines. You know, that had source code in them back in the eighties that you'd actually sit and type them in, I wonder if somebody's gonna listen to that, and just type in the rockstar and see what actually compiles. Let me just bring up because one of the frustrations that I had with one point does that to make fizz buzz, you have to use the wood, fizz and buzz as literal things, which I you know, I kinda gives the game away a little bit because off Wei. Yeah. This thing at midnight, taking fire and desire, you shout phys. And everyone's like, well, why did he shout fizz? Right. Do with rock and roll. So I started thinking if I could add a raise to the language in such a way that you could instead of having to type phys as a string literal, you could inject the unit code values of the letters into an array one by one on the coast that into being list. And, you know, the classic arrived, the minimal feature set you need to work with a rise in a list, based languages pushing up and we don't like the pop rocks. This is instead of. Pau become rock and roll. So this is this is how you initialized to string variables with Fiz and buzz. So we've got a does a function heckled..

"And we're back Dylan Beatty's here with us. I'm Carl Franklin. That's Richard Campbell. And we're talking about his language at that started as a joke, and you can actually write code with it now. It's called rockstar. It's on get hub and you're talking about the how do you explain a language to a rock musician through, you know, through that thing? When people don't even know. What programming is? Yeah. It's the so the interest. How do you explain an ISA Tareq language of Paraguay to someone who doesn't know what a real real one is? Yeah. And you know, this is why we resort to the power of metaphor, and we try inside will you got this thing? And so here we go this thing. And it's the same idea just in a different different brain. And then the thing that kinda gave it a newly sieve life was it sort of went quiet, and we started working on, you know, some ideas for a an implementation all that and things, but on New Year's day January first this year we made a rockstar made the front page of read it with, like twenty five thousand up votes, and that was just it just kicked the whole thing over again. Like him whole new wave of people who didn't see the first time around this is the coolest thing Atta. And of course, this kicks off another wave of people on get hung on trying to write some rockstar, and I don't want what should happen here. Right. I'm I thought Anna how hard would it be to actually? Turn listen to something with a full meal reference implementation, and a test suite so one week inside this is how it works tryout you'll code hair, if you code. What's good in if it doesn't work, then that may be a problem? But also, you know, at least these people working on different implementations going, what's happening with the specification what's going to be in the next release on, like, I don't know. I I've now the project manager of Joe, can I hadn't realize that this was a position that you could achieve in life. But then we go. And so, you know, January the Sierra I thought, actually, I want to know how to do this stuff 'cause I built, compilers back in university, little toy examples and things Bill anything real. So I spent the Christmas holidays.

"I will we'll get to that point in a minute. But what is becoming the, the long rambling narrative of rockstar? So, you know, it kind of butts for about a month, and there was this classic rock magazine. Article is great. They kind of set. Okay. Imagine, we know nothing about computers. Explain what rockstar is. I'm like, how do you explain a parody is teric computer programming language? The non programmers. Do you guys know the band steel panther? No. So steel panther is a parody glam rock band that kind of it, it started as a joke, parodying van Halen and multi crew and poison and all his bands from eighteen with spandex the lip gloss on the hash. Brian hair ridiculous, ridiculous lyrics unstable panther literally started out as a pure parody of that and has sort of become a vice sellout stadiums now. And the one in the audience, I've seen them here in London, Wembley, no one in the audience is quite show, whether they of that as a joke. Oh not like it. It's going to appoint whether they've done enough, real songs. They are really talented musicians, but the lyrics are clearly ridiculous intentionally ridiculous. While begs the question that, you know, rock and roll itself is kind of self parodying, if you take it the right way, isn't. Absolutely. Yeah. I mean look at spinal tap, you know. Right. Spinal tap was a parody movie in which they cost. So the house recently spinal tap that movie was almost entirely improvised, by the cost who also wrote the songs and played the instruments and then went on a real stadium as the characters from the movies, right? Lang real shows to real audiences at which point you like this is not a comedy film anymore, but it's also clearly out what's real, and what is it at this point? Yeah. I hear them do interviews. I just heard Harry Shera do an interview in character on NPR. But you know, in a way that wind of love that because it's this whole blurring of boundaries. It takes away a lot of the, the indecision by ocean. I be doing the so not is this isn't like we'll knows anymore. And so, yeah, I took a the guys trying to explain rockstar, someone who's not a programmer is like one of explain why steel Panthers joke to someone who's never heard of motley Crue right and slight from from the outside they kind of look the same. But then once you start appreciates the new ones. You'll be like, all right. I sort of understand now why this is different on what makes it interesting. And why it's getting, but that's a great explanation to to a metal magazine like that. Well, you know, it's like if you can grasp what steel Panthers about the new understand why are the programmers reaction to rockstar? Exempt really quite a good explanation outside of software. Metaphor. So the only thing we got because the stuff that we make in software is invisible. It's all ads. Yep. There's no matter how well you organize the electrons. It's still tough to see them guys. Hold that thought while we take this moment.

"E A, T, E dot net. And on Twitter at Dylan Beatty. Welcome, welcome back. Hey, how you doing doing? Good. Rockstar. Speaking of good tooling, or is it? How do you begin? I remember the story that you told began with recruiters and recruiter ads that were always advertising that they had rockstar developers or wanted rockstar as that. Yeah, that's probably a good place to start, actually, is this whole. So anyone who's worked in IT. And this is very much a kind of English language thing, but throughout the English speaking world, that just kind of become this trope about this idea of rockstar develops not his. I can kind of relate. There is there is some code that I wrote in three days in two thousand and two that ran in production for fifteen years with no bugs in the maintenance. And, you know, you think I'm sure most developers have something, you know, something, they've done in the course of that Korea where it just, you know, everything was perfect. It was kind of perfect storm of productivity and tooling and requirements. And, you know, I, I understand where this idea of the Faouzi times develop of kind of the person who's, well, no, the idea of an insane difference in the order of magnitude of productivity. Right. Right. Tweet couldn't develop on a good day. And everyone else all the time. Yeah. You know, I don't really agree with us. This whole thing about there are people who are always amazing. There are people who always mediocre, you know, everybody we vary coding, is this creative process and the days when you just do not get in the on and you sit in reply to Email tells time ago home, and then you come back the next day off course. I see the problem in bang, you know, there art is, but yet, you know, this, this idea of the rockstar, developer and this that old d remember years ago. The what was it more Einstein on Elvis thing that? Yeah, the three different. I mean we're Sonos. Yeah. It, it was always vaguely repellent at the time. But today, especially like, yeah, we really really can't talk about people that way. That's not right. Mort was sort of pejorative for the nine to five developer who checked out, you know, promptly at five PM went home and didn't about code for the rest of the night, and an Elvis was the rockstar developer that was always the hero at date, you know at the eleventh. Hour, you know, checking in the code and making it all work. And what was the other one Einstein's Feinstein? Yeah. Yeah. The brainiacs. Yeah. You know. So you kind of have this, this whole thing, and this going into recruitment, you know, I'm sure you see if you go on the link ten right now all IT tech jobs, as you just type in rockstar, and you'll find these companies needed PHP rockstar full major agency website thing. Right. And the whole thing is, is complete crap in it. I have always found the use of this time to be wanted. Communicates, sort of massive misunderstanding in this perpetuation of the idea that, you know, if you just you keep looking hot enough, there is some, you know, Ruxton developer out there in quotes, who will just come in and solve your problem. Right. Sure. And, you know, I think it, it perpetuates a lot of you know, negative management practices. Male bovine fecal matter. Something along those lines. Yes. And you know, there's this thing lost you pull STA values the guy who created octopus deploy righteous, the climate system who else following on Twitter and he just he put this tweets out. This isn't like July lost yo where he just said, somebody should make a programming language called rockstar to confuse developers. And I just, you know, I sort of saw this an I chuckled a bit. And it sort of stuck with me, and I thought, you know, some somebody's got to pick this up and do something with it. And nobody did because this is the internet. I get that thing. I find this particular read it you'll see a post and you think sunny and you click in someone's already Fulton it, right? This is the internet. It's, it's however many three full billion people. Somebody has already thought of it, whatever it is horrifying..
"rockstar" Discussed on Dude Soup
"So now in this article, which is actually really solid really good talks to a lot of rockstar employees across the whole company because when this thing started kicking off rockstar was like, okay, you know, what everyone can be as transparent as they want which amazingly still to this weird situation where people self-censor or emit certain details because they don't wanna seem like a bad nothing that company they worked for. That to me drives to this weird problem where everyone can agree objectively that like working long, unpaid hours is bad but projects like this it rockstar and rooster teeth in YouTube, new media and stuff like that. It is sort of self selecting that only the people who voluntarily work long hours, or or that dedicated to the projects to put in the hours to make it excel or be different are the ones who get noticed. And that's just how it goes. And it's because of those long hours that a lot of us got to where we are right now. So to go back retroactively and say that shouldn't have happened or that somebody should have stepped in and stopped it from happening is weird. Like, I don't know where that solution lies, and Bruce that's primarily what I wanted to ask you about in terms of management is win. And there's no right answer to this. But what I'm really curious about is when you can tell the people are over working or that they might over work in the future. Do you feel? It's your responsibility to step in. And cut them off. And just say, go home. I mean, I can't cut people off and that sort of the that's where I fell last week. And I'll I'll say I'll sort of expound upon what I said last week, which was if I've because I've run into people that are really passionate about their job. And we'll we're really long hours or weekends or whatever else that they need to Omar's one of them to our will occasionally come in on the weekends. And I didn't even know he did it. And what I do as a manager is I sort of keep track of those people that are I think are sort of on the path to maybe burning themselves out or getting close to small burn on or whatever. And then I talked to them as a human being and be like, hey, maybe you're on the way to like, you know, pushing yourself too far why not why not scale back. Is there anything I can help you with usually as what I say. Is there anybody else that I can give you work to like can can I like shuffle this off or make the seizure on you? Or whatever else if I get a no, I mean, that's that's what I got. I I have a I have no. And at that point if somebody says, no, no, I'm good. Then that's all I can do. I can't control people. I can't tell you not to come in. I'm not gonna tell you not to come in. Because if you want to like, there are lots of personal reasons that people will just wanna come to work for me. I've been through lots of hard times in my life. And I always use work as a way to get out of it that was that was actually a great way for me to do it. Some of my best moments at work, different jobs, or whatever was willing. I was going through really hard personal shit. And I would just come in. And be like, you know, what I'm just going to crank it out here. What? And I don't know if that's the surly always, I guess a healthy. But it was something that I did. And if it's like if you didn't have that escape it would kind of suck. What are they gonna do sit at home and wallow, no? A little work some people go shopping there they have their own spots. So for me, when I'm you know, if I check in a few times, and they go. No, no, I'm good. All right. Yeah. They're good. But it is complicated because remember one point loss. Yeah. I had I felt like I had to confront someone because they kept working all the time and could walk on very little sleep in other people couldn't there in a senior position, and I had been traveling for a month, and I got sick. And if he had done a similar thing he would just keep coming, and I have to be like the fact that you do this..

"Everybody, right. Kevin today, we're brought to you by him as me on these and loot crate, but I'll tell you about that later for now let's begin the show with what is an forever will be the rope report. Oh. You saw we were done talking about crunch, red dead rockstar unionization, and everything else. Boy, Howdy. Were you wrong? After Dan Houser is one hundred. Our statement divulge her that then became Dan Houser statement is Janika Ataka that was just talking about the writing team which became a giant industry-wide crunches bad. How bad is it? Rocks are nobody really knows. This is happening. Jason tries working on an article that's going on over here came the yesterday's games daily me and Gary talking about it at length trying to figure out if there's anything to be done and how you do it, and then people riding in v. mad about maybe they crunch their own jobs, but is it okay to crunch into that? Just how works video games industry. Last night rockstar, apparently HR Resat and lifted the ban that it was basically like, don't talk about rockstar. If you're of don't talk about rockstar on social media, which to be clear is is not unique director and many. That that's why so many people don't talk about their place of employment and also when they, if they have a Twitter, say thoughts and opinions or my own, not representive my employees, right? I'm gonna take a big old water, and then I'm going to read the rock about this lifted social media and we are going to read pretty much. I think it is the entirety of Jason shires report over at Kentucky. Of course, that means you need to go to Qatar at some point that ain't click on the articles. You give Jason the view or tweet them and say, hey, good work. Taking that sip long article. That's on top of that. We have more. Let me tell you kinda funny dot com. Slash KFI GD all it was pretty much conversations about this and crunch and back and forth, and all this. Let's kick off Jason academic last night, red dead redemption developer rockstar games lifted its social media policies telling employees, they were no longer banned from speaking about their work experiences on Twitter and Facebook. The move has led to a number of current staff sharing mostly positive stories from their time at the massive game company quote, first off, this was one of the most rewarding in lease stressful projects. I've worked on said Keith Thorburn who works in the music department at rockstar north in Edinburgh, Scotland, quote, I know what epic crunch feels like. But this was managed in such a way that I felt happy and healthy. The social media lift comes in the wake of an industry conversation surrounding excessive overtime or crunch that followed rockstar co, founders, Dan Hauser's comment, the New York magazine, New York magazine? No, not. TRE saying, quote, we were working one hundred hour workweeks end quote in twenty eighteen on Monday. Rockstar sent further comments to talk. You attributed to Houser saying that he was referring to himself in his writing team for three week period, and that we don't ask or expect anyone to work. Anything like this. The comments have triggered a firestorm of controversy. Over the past few days as former rockstar employees spoke up on Twitter about their own crunch experiences at the company with x. rockstar PR man, jobs offer friend of the show, writing that quote during the GTA four era. It was like working with a gun to your head seven days a week and other observers criticized the company.

"She's annoyed that Tyler didn't use the veto, but she understands his explanation. Makes sense. She can't really be mad at him. She says she did put him on the block. You know, what are you gonna do. She was hoping that he would go through this, but she's, she doesn't seem like she's going to really bees to upset about this and Scotty agrees with that logic. Scottie Scottie is upset that his two best friends in the house are targeting each other, the two people, he's closest to Tyler and Hayley. If only they could work together. Darn or Scotty? Yeah, I Scotty is going to kind of acted like voice of reason for Haley throughout the day a little bit, like Haley will count some votes and he'd be like, I don't know about this person, but. Yeah, I, I don't understand what Haley is thinking here and why she is. I still I'm still going back days ago thinking about the pitch in the bath tub and like how she she could think that this would ever happen, but she, she understands like there's no, there's no reason why Tyler is going to keep aunts or keep Angela on the block when she saved him last week. Yes. So salmon, Tyler have a conversation they are, of course, again going to be talking about like, oh, you know, we've been kind of drifting but says, like, you know, I love you. This final tooth thing, people are saying we had a final two, so we need to distance ourselves a little bit. But like we're still, we're still gray. I still love you. Sam wants to know who said we had a final two anyway and says, rockstar rockstar, did that and Bailey. Those two and Sam says, Bailey told me that you told her that we had a final two and entire. What's the suit Dom why would I ever say that Bailey? I would never say that that's so dumb. And so they're kind of clearing that up a little bit Sam hates that. She has to choose now this week between rockstar and Casey. She loves them both, but she does tell Tyler, you know, I am gonna keep Casey because you and Casey, you're still my babies. And so I'm still, I'm going to keep Casey. That's what I'm going to do, but I'm not going to tell anybody which way I'm voting, not even Casey. I'm not gonna tell anyone. Tyler says, just blame it on the hacker. So you don't want to tell people because you don't the hacker to cancel your vote, Sam instead later on the day's going to go with the good ole two dots and a Cup excuse instead of that one. So my favorite reason to to vote, yes. In in that conversation, she considers telling Casey at some point maybe later in the week, but she's, she's ultimately just trying to, you know, just want anyone to know what she's doing and very, very similar to her h week. Doesn't want to tell anyone what she's doing, but she does promise Hyler that she's going. She's going to keep Casey. And again, like, oh, this is gonna. This is this a hostage come back around on Tyler at some point. Like I know we've been saying this what every raking week, but like she's like, well, we still Neva. No, like who the hack, who the hacker is like, maybe my vote will be cancelled and he's just like, yeah, just use as an excuse like you clearly. He's like her her little babies, Tyler in Casey, know who the hacker is not telling her like this at some point. You gotta think that at some point, you know that the fact that hiring Casey have had the wool over SAM's is has to come back around and and Sam such an emotional player that like that will affect her games. But in all on the state's probably just gonna like caused her to like self vector something like we're not going to get sort of like game repercussions from this, I feel, but..

"You want someone like me who is strategic in who I like. It took me a while to wrap my head around it, but that was a game move. You made a great game move on your part and I get it now and you want someone like me to be their voting. And I'm like, I just that's just hilarious to me that she's trying to claim the mantle of. I'm the logical one. I'm the one who would set aside my feelings and vote without reason or with reason. So I, I don't know that's going to. I mean, again, she's trying, but it's just, you know, it wasn't very. Effective? Yes, we've very consistently once again, each gone down one point for rockstar this week, the audience decided to give rockstar last week. They gave her a four this week down to a two. So this this may have had something to do with me getting rid of those funky votes, or maybe they were very much down on rockstar this week. I didn't get rid of that many votes pretty small number compared to the thousands, something votes. So I don't think you're backpedaling already that much, but, but it's definitely possible because like I said, I think all but all, but just a couple of the funky votes that we're trying to game the system had had listed Bailey or rockstar as their favorite player. So that is the one if any of them are going to be influenced, it would likely be them..

"Oh rockstars never going to show it's like it's great to sharing some of the stuff out but it just leads to more questions which is which is okay i'm not expecting this the next week may get a whole bunch of info just yet anyway because it doesn't feel like they've ramp that part of the staging of this new game yet so i'm excited for what i've heard yeah sounds like jan was very high on it from their hands on of course we know zero about any kind of multiplayer they didn't haven't talked about that at all yet christian what was your feeling about this trailer and some of the tidbits that i was able to discuss yeah i agree with what you've both said i think rockstar make some of the best trailers or has made some of the best trailers in video game history gta fours were incredible even san andreas if you go on the way back machine which shocking how old that game or how old i am i should say they came how old it is but they do a really good job with their presentation and their cinematics and i think for me watching this reveal or the trailer online reaction that came after it's like we all get swept up in like how beautiful this trailer isn't we're like a home in this this is it's beautiful so great wait they didn't show me anything what am i what am i doing has has anything changed what the mission system what is aiming look like is is gun play better could have like this weird roller coaster we all ride that's amazing and it's like khalif said we're left wondering all these questions which i think is intentional by rockstar right it keeps the conversation going longer than just here's a trailer and here's the new aiming mechanic and we have several months between us in october when this game comes out the thing i think it's most interesting about how they framed this trailer though is that it seems to lean into this idea of like the west is coming to an end the end of the frontier and i'm like oh yeah that's wait a minute that was the theme of the last game.
