A highlight from Ep. 123 - Unpacking the Influence of 1965: A Year that Shaped Music and Film
"Well, here we are, episode 123. In for my friend Todd Sorkin, aka Big Head Todd the Wet Sprocket. That's 100 plus 23 equals 123. His head is so big, yet his brain is so small. Anyway, on this episode, The Wrecking Two is back in action. Full force tonight. We will be talking about the year 1965. I don't think we've ever gone back this far. Talking about the music and the movies. Nice little addition, people like it. Of 1965, so sit back, relax, stop making your peace signs, because that was right around the corner. Enjoy the show. Thank you, Amanda, for that wonderful introduction, as usual, over that wonderful introduction music created by the one and only, the professor, Mr. ... Only because he did that song. I'm going to give him a little bit of ... Let me get rid of that. I'll give him a little bit of credit. Mr. Lou Colicchio did the intro. Here we go, here we go. I don't even have The Wrecking Two on the screen yet, and Big Head Todd the Wet Sprocket comes in with, I am here, entertain me, and my big head. He gets it. He's finally seen. Sometimes I can kind of get it in there, just kind of ... Just own it. He has officially owned it. His head is bulbous. He's got a bulbous head. Speaking of bulbous, it's time Mark Smith from the ... Rolling Stone, Penalty Box, right off the bat. See that? And Lou Colicchio from the Music Brothers Progress, who has never seen Jackie Brown, Penalty Box right off the bat from both of them motherfuckers. They're bolted. I am not messing around tonight. Oh, no, no, no. We are not playing. It comes on my reading that rag, Rolling Stone. Let's try this again, gentlemen. Don't do it, Mark. I see you. I see Mark. He's reaching for it. All right. Let's bring him on. What do you want to get tortured for now? Mark Smith. You got the F bomb in the first three minutes. Come on. It's your fault. It's your fault, and it's Lou's fault. Oh, did I say that when Lou came before he came, or after he came out? Lou didn't hear that. Look at Lou. He's got that notebook. This is the Jackie Brown thing you're talking about. That's the movie. Quentin Tarantino movie. San Quentin Tarantino. Oh, Jesus. I think he did Pulp Fiction, right? Oh, you know what? You're in. Again. I agree. Put him away. I think. I think. Pulp Fiction was up for Best Picture. It got robbed. It got robbed by fucking, what was it, Training Day, I think. Beat it that year. Oh, okay. Which is just another bad cop movie. Were you lucky enough to see Pulp Fiction before the hype? Oh, dude. Are you kidding me? Oh, yeah. Me too. Multiple times in the theater. One of the only movies I've ever seen. I think I saw it in the movie theater four or five times. I couldn't get enough of it. I just heard. Oh, I forgot Lou. I just heard John Travolta's back. And so I go see this movie, right? And I had no idea what I was in for. Man, that was good. I didn't see Reservoir Dogs. I didn't know anything about Quentin. Wow. What a surprise when I saw that. I saw it when it first came out there. I saw it with my in -laws. My very old school Italian conservative in -laws. They were kind of. My mother -in -law was a little. She was pretty cool. My father -in -law was pretty uptight about it. Especially the hillbilly scene. Oh, in Pulp Fiction? Oh, yeah. Yeah. That was something I didn't see coming. When I opened that door, that's not what I thought. Hell no. I was going to say. I don't think anybody thought that.

A highlight from 97 - NFTs Are Dead - AGAIN, Amazon's AI Race Aids FTX Creditors and Immutable's Rise
"This is an Equity Baits Media podcast. ACAS powers the world's best podcasts. Here's a show that we recommend. Tell me about your mama's kitchen. That simple question opens up a flood of delicious memories and it's at the center of my new Audible original podcast called Your Mama's Kitchen. My mama's kitchen was chaos. This teeny tiny little room was where we did everything. We grew up there. We became teenagers, adults in that small space. I'm Michelle Norris. The kitchen is usually the heartbeat of our homes. It's the place where we're nourished physically and spiritually. Our loudest laughter is in the kitchen. But so too are some of our most vulnerable moments. Each week on Your Mama's Kitchen, I'll talk to guests, actors, authors, chefs, musicians and more about how the food and the culinary traditions of their youth shaped their lives in interesting and sometimes surprising ways. One of the big questions is, what is money? For practical purposes, it exists in a series of heterogeneous databases, very different databases. Do you believe in crypto digital currency? It may be an answer, but it is the highly respectable disaster. I'd go on a quick one. There is no second best. Welcome to the Crypto Curious podcast, proudly brought to you by the Bamboo app. Crypto Curious is your go to source for all things crypto currency, whether you're a seasoned pro or new to the world of crypto, we've got you covered. Each week we'll break down the top news stories of the past seven days, giving you the information you need to stay on top of the latest trends and developments. Plus we'll share quick bites of news and insights that you won't want to miss. If you're new to crypto, we recommend starting with our early episodes, we'll break down the basics and give you a solid foundation to understand the crypto world. Join us as we explore the ever evolving world of cryptocurrency and educate ourselves along the way. On today's episode, we'll discuss the supposed death of NFTs, how Amazon's race for AI affects FTX creditors. And we'll talk a little about the mover and the shaker this week, plus loads of short sharp news bites. So let's get on with it. My name is Tracy and I'm joined by my mates Blake and Craig as we catch up on the crypto news. Hey guys, how are you going? Very well, Trace. Good to be back. How are you? Yeah, very well. How are you going Craig? Very good. Thanks, Trace. I've just learned that tomorrow is 200 days until the halvening, which is very exciting. It is very exciting. Is it speeding up or is it just me? I don't know. It is speeding up. But have you guys noticed that it is popping up in a lot more fees and news at the moment? Like it's getting a little bit more traction now? I haven't noticed, but that wouldn't surprise me. I think until there's 100 days left. Oh, yeah. It's going to be good. There is a counter that you can get on Google, but I think there are a few more counters that pop up as we get a little bit more excited. So at the end of the year will be about 100 days. And I think that's when people will start to realize that the countdown is coming to an end. Exciting. Alrighty, let's jump into our first news story of the week and what was dominating headlines over the past seven days. There was some research put into the world recently, and like I said, it's made headlines in the crypto sphere, but filtered out into the normie news as well. I saw it covered in some mainstream news publications. It was on the project, Rolling Stones grabbed onto it as well, did a big story. And it was a big story because it had great headline pieces. 95 % of all NFT collections have zero value. NFTs are officially dead. These are some of the headlines that came. So NFTs have seen a bit of a boom and bust, especially over the last 12 to 18 months. The market has been flooded with a lack of buyers. But what has brought on this headline over the last week? It's a study that encompassed over 73 ,000 NFT collections and found a massive imbalance in the market and showed that 95 % of these collections had a zero value, Craig. That's right, Trace. The articles called it Debt NFTs, the Evolving Landscape of the NFT Market. It was by this group called DAP Gamble, which is a community of experts in the finance space. We'll chuck it in the show notes below. But I think looking back, as you just said, 73 ,000 NFTs, most of them were probably just art collections of apes, penguins, space aliens. Like we had peak euphoria. And I had me and my mates getting up at 6 a .m. for a Zoom call for mints on Solana. That doesn't scream peak euphoria. I don't know what does. But, you know, as it said, 95 % of these NFTs are worthless. But there seems to be a smaller pool of collections that people are still paying quite a bit of money for. Bored apes are still going for 24e. The nouns. The pudgy penguins are still going. Nouns, exactly. Yep. So this is a misleading figure, I feel. Well, of course, it's a misleading figure. You know, in the peak ball run, everyone's trying to figure it out. Every man and their dog was launching an NFT collection. I even had a mate that launched one. It was just peak hysteria, peak euphoria.
A highlight from BITCOIN REVOLUTION | TUCKER CARLSON & JAVIER MILEI MAKE HISTORY
"We don't see lugar a ludas, esta nueces una taria para tibios, esta nueces una taria para córdes, esta nueces una taria para los politicamente correntos. Xo no me me ti yaca para estar y ando córderos. Xo me me ti yaca para despastar de odres. ¡Quiero! ¡Quiero! ¡Quiero! ¡Quiero! ¡Quiero! ¡Quiero! ¡Quiero! ¡Quiero! ¡Quiero! ¡Quiero! When you think of Argentina you might envision tango, soccer, or maybe a juicy steak, but today it's all about a wild surge in bitcoin advocacy and a man whose opposition to statism might be louder than a wake -up call from Frankie. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM That's right, baby. Wake the f 'up and get on the Freedom Train. We get a lot of s*** to cover. Let's get it! I think that it can be my moment. Because as we have seen, we are in all of them. And we are not one of them. This is what we are in all of them. Because we are going to do everything, and we are going to take care of everything in the world. Yes, to be able to build Argentina properly. A liberal Argentina. An Argentinian people. An Argentinian that is going to build the borders of the world. And yes, in 35 years, we will be able to build the first global potential. So yes, effectively, I am going to be in politics. be Will it Teresa? Míle he is right. Míle? Míle, he is right. farm. go I'm gonna ahead and start with this go ahead and take a look down there 339 .8 million views and I want you to put that in perspective so when I said that you know these bit corners just made history well they're both advocates and it just became the most watched interview in history now Tucker's last interview with that orange guy yeah Trump that set the record and beat Oprah's former record with her interview with Michael Jackson and it appears Tucker Carlson is going full Eminem breaking a record every time he drops a record right now what this really had me thinking is the fact that well you know Joe Rogan gets like 11 million views he's the number one podcaster in the world Tucker was the number one show on Fox News and all mainstream media and he was getting about three four million views I'm putting that in perspective he's gone independent and he's got 340 million views blowing everyone out of the water talking about well look at this Argentina's next president and this guy is winning big -time you saw those crowds who is he well Tucker traveled to Buenos Aires to speak to him and find out and we of course hear it simply Bitcoin have covered Malay quite a bit but very exciting stuff an amazing conversation very base and before we get into that now Malay you got to understand they kind of do language a little different right so when he uses the the terms liberal he's referring to classical liberal like Bastia which is closer to libertarianism or anarcho capitalism if you'd like to say and when he refers to anything like socialism or communism of course they're all the same thing all statism and that's really the point that he's driving home is the fact that it's freedom versus the state and I love it until you fix the money for example a lot of Western democracies went full tyrannical regimes over the past few years and they're supposed to be democracies with representative government that is supposed to work in your best interest but I think we know the truth well let's get to it we're in downtown Buenos Aires the capital of Argentina this was once about a hundred years ago one of the richest cities in the world and you could tell as you walk around the fated grandeur of a once great city but this is now a desperate country its economy is in shambles has been for a long time Argentina famously defaulted on his debt more than 20 years ago but now hyperinflation has made this country genuinely desperate you see when you have dinner here in restaurants and people pull out bricks of local currency the peso to pay it feels like Weimar or Zimbabwe but it's not this is a developed country that's moving backwards at high speed and because of the frustration that has built up among the population particularly among poor people a man called Javier Miele is poised to become its next president he's a former soccer star goalie a performer in a Rolling Stones cover band and a libertarian economist he's not a libertarian in the traditional American sense he wouldn't fit into the Cato Institute he's libertarian in the traditional sense he believes people should have the maximum amount of freedom they can be given which is a lot much more than they now get in Argentina he has moved from basically nowhere in the last several years to become maybe the most famous person in this country the election is next month in October and once again it seems like he's likely to win he himself is a Bitcoin enthusiast right he jetted off to Argentina not for steak not for soccer but to meet the rock star economist and fellow Bitcoin advocate Javier Miele why do you think from your perspective you've become a man with no political background so popular so quickly in this country that in a cable con el hecho de que ese de huador de football a mismo tiempo ese do cantante rock -and -roll y ademas a soy economista y creo que esa combinación es una combinación attractive en terminos de producto televisivo pero por otra parte lo que también es importante el tema de las cídeas y argentina a pasicamente es un país que se va cien años abraçando las cídeas socialistas y entonces la revelión natural del sistema era ser libérales y es por eso que la revelión natural la parece siempre los jovenes y los jovenes encontraron alguien que man Miele from an 18 % poll prediction grabbing a 29 % victory in the primaries Miele maybe is unpredictable as a Bitcoin price chart and with hair that's probably more talked about than the latest thing what is that now like men in black aliens in Mexico or something and the guy is very based he's just gonna say what he thinks what he feels but Miele's boldness isn't limited to just critiquing the state but he also questioned the Pope talked about advising the orange guy and has many times advocated for Bitcoin is the future of financial freedom in short Javier Miele is making waves the Pope the current Pope is from Argentina I would think he would support you he has instead criticized you and you've called him a communist why the disconnect bueno primero porque el papa juega politica vente a si luma some papa donde tiene forte Ingenencia política ademostrado además una granda finidad con dictadores como Castro o como comaduro si restar el lado de de dictadores wait I'm sorry Raul Castro's a murderer si if you got to the minute at Rocesino but the Pope you believe the Pope has an affinity for Raul Castro si exacto si decho no los condena si repatante condescending de conesos y esta mien condescending de con la dictadora venesolana a si el condescending de con todos los discuiras a un cuando se verdaderos criminals toco el esos un problema prudemas es a lien que consider a que la justicia social un elemento central de desu vision y eso es muy complicado porque la justicia social case robar el fruit su trabajo una persona y dar ciudad otra en dos es implicado dos cosas una es un robo y el problema es que el robo esta encontra de lo que seniela los días mandamientos si ha valar la justicia sociales ha valar el robo por otando son problema de que está violando los días mandamientos el otro problema es que es un trato decíbal friende a la ley now me and myself I'm kind of against protectionist policies but Malay on the global stage he has a clear stance no deals with status so china lula unless it's about decentralized money of the future bitcoin probably don't bother knocking you've said that as president of argentina you will not do business with china de cho no solo no via certain negocios con china no via certain negocios con nimún comunista esir habar yo soy un defensor de la libertad de la paz y la demogracía lo comunista no entranay but also incredible beyond the politics and probably his bitcoin price checks who is this Javier Malay at heart well one thing he's a man whose phone screensaver is joy has no end and is as passionate about freedom the austrian economic community as he is about bitcoin and decentralization no no no no no no when you talk about and live according to your conscience you don't have me because you know what is the definition of this personal me you know that when you are in the last moment or when you are in the constant pressure of being big you know what I mean? You know what I mean? You know what I mean? This will pass all over your life.
A highlight from Ep.118 - Rewind to 1967: The Year That Changed Music Forever

me alone and I had to talk opera with myself talked opera yeah rigoletto did you talk about rigoletto this time I'm just really boring you know I'm like all right this is why this is a two and a half hour podcast some of us have to work tomorrow all right here we go let's jump right into 1967 musical events in 1967 and the year kicks off right away with a bomb a bomb on January 4th the doors release can arguably one of the greatest debut records ever arguably if you had a top 25 greatest debut that albums would have to be in the top 10 it would have to be yeah you know if you had a top 50 that would have to be in the top 10 right even if you don't like them you have to say that was so ahead of its time oh it's so different nothing out there was like the needle and all you hear it kicks I mean fucking what a way to start an album it's a heavy song it with a bossa nova beat yeah I mean that's pretty clever yeah 67 so you know bossa nova was pretty hip again John Densmore over underrated underrated underappreciated I think you are you are so correct you know never gets the the the consideration that I I don't know you can't put him in greatest of all time but could he be okay if there's a top there's a top 25 drummer top 25 drummers is he in it good question and in rock we'll just say in rock I think he could be I could see him making so I don't know if he's a universal pick but I could see him on some list I mean he's something you'd have to think about like you said like it doesn't get noticed so much you know yeah yeah or it I mean although his drumming wasn't shy I mean he's jazzy as hell I heard um writers on the storm yesterday and his adjustment playing is great in his adjustments during the shows just for that yeah yeah the unpredictability of you know how the how the song was gonna go right because they could rehearse it all they want once Morrison got into that zone well in the drama keeps the beat right yeah yeah the drummer has to stay up with that yeah and played to the clown so to speak right you know and my my problem is if some of the clowns don't have the beat you know at one point they've got to give in like I said Morrison or even Dylan they'll set the tone but they've got to be steady themselves you know it's yeah otherwise it's just erratic but you know yeah guy like Dan's more I mean I had skill I had a lot of a lot of technical ability right feel yes cool so obviously his drums always sounded good yeah on the earlier on the other records even you know three years worth of music whatever I guess I would be who produced some Jack Holtzman was the producer did a good job Jekyll or now wait so no what was it Paul Rothchild yes yes yes I'm sorry Holtzman was he on the record company yeah yeah was that it was that chrysalis or chrysalis I think or just like yes that's a lecture a lecture weren't they on chrysalis though also I thought they were yeah maybe maybe chrysalis was a subsidiary but uh yeah Jack Holtzman's son is Adam Holtzman he's a keyboardist right now he plays with here we go Stephen Wilson but he does a little blog on Facebook and he talks about growing up and he was like six years old and his father brought him to a club to see the tour Wow at six years old he just talks about like yeah it's a great little blog Wow all right and four days later on January 8th Elvis Presley turned 32 on January 14th the human be in right the human be e -i -n human being takes place in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park polo fields with spoken words from Timothy Leary Allen Ginsberg Gary Snyder in others live music was provided by Jefferson Airplane the Grateful Dead Big Brother in the holding company and Quicksilver Messenger Service speeches from Jerry Rubin and others were also given at the event although it's one band there I liked yeah Quicksilver Messenger Service who was it on January 15th 1967 who is your favorite poet of all them I know you're not asking me Arthur Rimbaud who influenced Jim Morrison good answer good answer way to bring that first opening segment rough full circle we're getting better Scott we're good now you guys get a lot of good trust me I'm getting a lot of good feedback so let's keep it at that I don't want you son ask for more money and on January 15th 1967 the Rolling Stones appear on the Ed Sullivan show at Ed Sullivan's request finish it he asked them to let's spend sing let's spend some time together is that the one there you go yeah and then he told him a really big shoe I hate to do this I mean I come back on penalty box I don't say just he beat my record okay look he just got on the show after late and these are either he's stuck he's frozen put the dog nose back on where'd it go are you throw it at the camera like your headphones on January 16th 1967 the monkeys begin work on headquarters the first album to give them complete artistic and technical control over their material and it was fucking horrible fucking horrible what were they thinking they know they were thinking the egos got too big they thought they were the music well the argument can be made that you know Mike Nesmith did write different drum yeah so he could write songs but I don't think he was a pop songwriter you know headquarters and they try to be all fucking like 60 ish and shit they weren't looking for pop were they they're trying to be like more psychedelic yeah I think so there were their channel on the Beatles with those quirky little yeah with anti -grizzelles on that I don't know some weird shit I'll tell you what though I don't care about it myself but it was surely a harpsichord on it because that's what all those records had they had to have a harpsichord and I have the book this the 100 best -selling records of the 60s the monkeys got a they've had quite a few albums on there oh they do yeah they were they were but I mean I thought it was just a condensed period of the show which it probably was but it's still I mean they've got I mean most of their albums sold really well yeah yeah ah you like the show what's it is like the show I did I still like it I still love it I love that that that's so that humor is great like dumbed down brilliantly done though humor yeah way was what they were supposed to act like that yeah you know what I mean there was no like these guys are bad actors they knew exactly how to do that they pulled it off great it was campy it was great for its time it's still great to watch now yeah I do think that banana splits were a better band yeah that's I'll give you the banana

Ahead in our next hour, we break down the latest installment of the magazine, a special double issue dedicated to cities, from the Big Apple to Nashville to a so -called forest city in Malaysia. This is Bloomberg Business Week. I'm Carol Masser. And I'm Tim Stenebeck. Stay with us. Today's top stories and global business headlines coming up right now. We'll be right back. Plains in South later this week. Thousands of people in attendance at Burning Man in Nevada may soon be able to leave after being stuck for days. People have been stuck at the event located in the desert after torrential downpours caused muddy conditions. Organizers noted yesterday, the mud made the main road into and out of the event site impassable. Police in Pennsylvania are still searching for an escaped inmate they call extremely dangerous. We're asking residents to check on their neighbors. If they're not at home, please let us know so we can check their property and their absence. Lieutenant Colonel George Bivins said they're working to find convicted murderer, Danilo Cavalcante, and want to make sure no one is hurt in the process. Cavalcante was allegedly seen on video in Pecopson Township, west of Philadelphia and near the Chester County prison where he escaped from. Bivins said they have had Cavalcante's mother record a video that they're broadcasting that asks him to turn himself in peacefully. Rolling Stones fans won't have.

"Does this ring a bell, Mike? Well, of course it does. Everybody's talking about this. Oliver Anthony, largely unknown a month ago. This is rich men north of Richmond, along with two or three of his other records, all of which were in the iTunes top 10, not just of country, but irrespective, it is a guy and a guitar and a cry for the way America used to be and a cry for all kinds of things. Rolling Stone and the leftist popular culture is trying to destroy this guy and making fun, making a mockery of the attention that he is getting. He lives in Farmville, Virginia, which is sort of between Richmond and Lynchburg. And rich men north of Richmond is a reference to what's up I -95 from Richmond. Hello, Washington. It's a reference to federal tyranny. And it's great. And he's great. And it's just one of those cultural moments. And so now frame that against Rachel Ziegler, who plays Snow White in the upcoming Disney reboot of Snow White. Now there's a montage that I'm going to play on my show today that is her purposefully trashing the story of Snow White. Now this is peculiar because Disney is deciding to go completely all in on blowing up any of the traditional Disney stories like Snow White and the Seven. Of course, there are no dwarves. My goodness, you sure can't have dwarves. So she's a young Latina playing Snow White, complaining about how Prince Charming was a stalker. And the prince isn't going to save Snow White in our version. We're going to empower Snow White to let her become the leader that we know she can be. And I'm looking at this, I'm thinking, they're doing this intentionally. Of course they are. But Mark, why? Why do you want to hurt your company? I've asked this through every chapter that you have ushered us through, that you and I have talked about. For those unfamiliar, Snow White is in a deep sleep and is awakened by the stalking. He's a stalker. And she said, don't forget, this cartoon was in 1937. It's 2023 now, baby.

"I kiss them and I love them Cause to me they're all the same I hug them and I squeeze them They don't even know my name They call me the wanderer They call me the wanderer I'm the wanderer Dion Demucci, live or dead? I didn't even know the name Dion Demucci so how would I know? He went by Dion, the wanderer. Oh Dion, oh yeah, yeah, yeah, sure, sure. And keep away from a run around zoo and see, there you go. The answer is he's alive, alive and 84 today, 84 today, just a little older than Biden. There you go. Hey, I wanna just salute you. Your tribute to Salem Media Group's co -founder and chairman Stuart Epperson on Twitter was really beautiful. You helped put things in perspective about the fact that all of us are sitting here largely because of his efforts along with his brother -in -law Ed Atsinger who founded Salem and what would become Salem Media Group back in the early 1970s. And we lost a broadcasting giant as Stuart passed away at the age of 86. He was such a kind and decent and godly man. A lot of stories about Stuart that people don't even know about. He and Nancy, his wife, his beloved wife, mentoring kids from the inner city, did things that a lot of people had no idea they did. They just did it quietly with a servant's heart. Of course, he was a broadcasting legend and hey, Salem is not gonna be the same without him. So thank you for your beautiful tribute to him on Twitter. As I tweeted out, anyone who got to know him or met him received a blessing because he fought the good fight. He did and I got to thinking that what's the measure of a life and what does it mean to the broad nation and what does it mean to me? And so I'm sitting there thinking, what are some things I can say within the allotted amount of characters? Stu, through his efforts, made our country better through his conservative activism. He made radio better, partnered with Ed Atzinger to create this company that has changed, saved so many souls with all the Christian stations we have, hope, trying to save our country. And he also made my life better because for the last 11 plus years, I've had the opportunity to walk into this building and do this show containing various blessings, including a daily chat with you. And so, but for this company, that's not happening. And but for Stu, this company doesn't happen. He and Ed, I'm eternally, eternally grateful. Rest well, well done, good and faithful servant, the great Stu Evers. You bet, prayers for Nancy, the four kids, the 21 grandchildren, what a beautiful family. I'll be in Winston -Salem on Friday. Carl Jackson looks like a guest host for me as I travel there for the funeral. And then back again on Monday. So wonderful, wonderful. Yep, yep, so thank you again for your kind words. Hey, what do you do when you're the Washington Post and you smear a movie like Sound of Freedom that has become this shocking summertime hit? Now they're approaching $100 million at the box office. Forbes and Variety, look at this headline at Forbes, surprise hit Sound of Freedom moves up in box office rankings. It was number two this past weekend, Marc, only to Mission Impossible. This movie is raking it in. It's changing hearts and minds. A lot of eyeballs are seeing this movie. And the Washington Post, of course, and I think Rolling Stone and CNN, they've smeared this movie saying it's QAnon tinge. Adjacent, yes. It's QAnon adjacent. Whatever that even means. Who knows? Well, so there was such a laughable out, you know, people just laughed at that. Like, are you crazy? What, the left is now pro child sex trafficking? Is that what you're telling us? Well, what do you do if you're the Washington Post and you're confronted with that kind of criticism? You double down. I'm reading an article today, Noah Berlatsky who writes, QAnon and Sound of Freedom both rely on tired Hollywood tropes. You see, Trump plans to screen the film Sound of Freedom at his New Jersey golf club next week. Well, that was all they needed to hear. There you are. Because as you proceed, I don't want to interrupt you, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. If you ask them, of course, we're not pro child sex trafficking, but if an anti child sex trafficking movie comes out and it stars Jim Caviezel, a stalwart conservative and conservatives like it, and endless in the QAnon angle, if anybody's even wondering about that, that sliver of loony birds believes that there's some cadre of George Soros, Hillary Clinton, Epstein's ghost who are involved in all this, whatever, but the trafficking story is real and if people they don't like are making that movie, then the movie becomes bad. It must be terrible. I mean, let's just peruse some of the words in this Washington Post article, the column. The film has been embraced by the far right and Christians. Many critics, many, I love when they say that. People say. People say, dot, dot, dot. Many critics have linked Sound to Freedom to the pro Trump QAnon conspiracy cult. They've also been startled by its mainstream success. But the truth is that the conspiratorial right and the Hollywood default aren't that different, which is why perhaps our politics have had such difficulty rejecting QAnon, Trump, and fascism. I'm not kidding you, Mark. This is like satirical garbage, but it's on the pages of the August Washington Post. The August Washington Post has another huge problem this week as Jennifer Rubin, who continues to receive a paycheck from them for some reason, and we all know what that reason is. You remember when she used to write a column called Right Turns? It was a kind of sort of conservative column. I had her on a couple of times. She was one of those sort of center righties, kind of a squish, but whatever, right on some things, not so much on others. And Trump broke her, and now she's hard left, rooting for Biden every day, rooting for Democrats every day, and against anything conservative. She had a column in the Washington Post that said that Florida is paying a horrible price for DeSantis, for fighting the woke stuff and standing up for parents' rights and stuff like that, and all she did was get the numbers precisely 180 degrees wrong. She identified the number of people moving to Florida, which is huge, and characterized it as the number of people moving out of Florida. The Post issued, I think, a page 47B correction, and somebody said they should be embarrassed, the Post should be embarrassed. They're not. Embarrassment involves some measure of self -awareness, some notion that you've done something wrong and need to atone or need to correct yourself. That doesn't exist at Post headquarters. It doesn't exist at New York Times headquarters. They know exactly what they're doing. If you double down on an anti -child sex trafficking movie as being QAnon and embraced by only Christians in the far right, listen, Jennifer Rubin is child's play. They won't touch that. I mean, believe me, she's a heroine to them. And incidentally, for the record, she based that on an incorrect statistic that was, I think, originally published, if I'm not mistaken, by Business Insider, where they had the two numbers backwards, and then they, of course, had to correct it. Gavin Newsom famously gave an interview, I think to Sean Hannity, where he tried to make that same goofy argument, something about, but his formula is per capita, per capita. Per capita, more people are fleeing Florida than are fleeing, it's goofy. And incidentally, speaking of goofy, tell me you saw the CNBC 10 worst states to live and work in. And Texas, number one, baby, Texas. Yes, and the - The worst state to live and work in. All 10 states on the, well, they're all red states. Well, and they are, because the criteria used by CNBC, I don't know if you got them in front of you, but it's magnificent states, Texas, Florida, Indiana, South Carolina, in a place with good, God's doing, happy people leading productive lives. The criteria used by CNBC included a few factors, some of them objective, but one of them, like the degree to which these states are willing to fall in with DEI initiatives, various woke things - Child care, is there child care per capita? Is the climate, but I mean, honest to goodness, it's, you don't think people are fleeing California and New York and Illinois, but they're an embarrassment. CNBC used to be kind of a neutral sort of - It was kind of financial network. Yeah, the 10 worst states to live and work in. Of course, Florida's got, and I love the, they got to smear DeSantis right off the bat, so they published the list in descending order. So it's 10, nine, eight, because Florida's got to pop up first. When you look at the article, it's got to see Florida first, because Ron DeSantis is ruining Florida. Florida's just a hell hole. Hey, I got a plan, and I said this on the show yesterday, I'll say it again today, I'm embracing this report. Please, progressives, stay away, stay out. Yeah, CNBC is right, Texas is horrible. It's too hot here. It's hot, there are bugs. We'll shoot you where you stand. There are guns everywhere, and South Carolina's even worse. Please, believe me, Florida, I can't even get through the day without looking over my shoulder. You'll get eaten by an alligator, and you'll die. Oh my gosh, please don't come here. Stay in Berkeley, you stay in LA, make sure you stay put in Chicago. Do not come to any, the CNBC article is gospel. It is true, they're onto something. So please, please, I'm looking out for you, progressives. Stay away, we don't want you to have to be triggered. Now, speaking of being triggered. Real quick, 30 seconds, having mentioned DeSantis, having mentioned Florida, all eyes on, maybe for the first time in a long time, all eyes on Jake Tapper. DeSantis sits down for Jake Tapper. It's on Jake's show, right? It's five o 'clock Eastern, four o 'clock Central. Well, I thought it was prime time tonight. It's not prime time? Maybe they are, my mistake. So just, we're not in the habit of paying attention to CNN. But DeSantis sits down with Tapper, and there's a lot of advanced angst about this, and I don't know why. I've said, silly, let the game come to me. If it goes well, then it will have been a good idea for DeSantis to do it. If it doesn't, then it wasn't. I have a feeling it'll probably go fairly well. I think there are some folks on Team Trump who are, shall we say, concerned about it going well, and so there's been a lot of mouthing this, but how do you think that will go, and was it a good idea for him to go? DeSantis has been criticized for only talking to certain members of conservative and friendly media. Which is true, which is true. Well, I can speak from experience. But listen, he needs to go where he's gonna maybe win over hearts and minds. Did you see the lady in South Carolina who stood up at a packed town hall that he was hosting? She gives this impassioned speech about what a die -hard Trump supporter she is, and she loves Donald Trump, and she feels that he's been unfairly persecuted, but she's thought long and hard about it, and she believes that Ron DeSantis is the man who will take the day.
A highlight from What is Hollywood Hiding?
"The sound of freedom continues to defy critics. Tens of millions of dollars in box office results already. And yet the media has decided to break their silence on the film. Typically, the media ignores successful endeavors that they don't exactly like. What is it now? All of a sudden, the media has come out the Guardian, Rolling Stone, attacking sound of freedom. I hear frequently from people, oh, Charlie, why is our country so divided? Why are we so divided as a nation? Well, hold on a second. Maybe the way the media has been covering sound of freedom can tell us part of the story. Sound of freedom is a true story. It's a story of a heroic man who decides to go and save a child from child sex trafficking. This is an ugly reality. Child sex trafficking happens in our country. Now, to what extent or to how widespread it is, we don't really know. We don't know if it's hundreds of thousands, millions, some people estimate. It's millions of children in the North American hemisphere. That could be true. But even if it's only a couple hundred, it's a disgusting and vile, evil, satanic practice that everybody should agree. It's unacceptable. It's not something we should put up with. And we do know that some of the most powerful people in the world have participated in a form of human trafficking, not exactly child trafficking, Jeffrey Epstein, for example. Bill Clinton wrote on the plane. We don't know if Bill Clinton was involved in the sex trafficking or not, but we could reasonably speculate as being a sex addict, he probably was. Members of the royal family. So we have evidence that people in the top levels of our government, of finance, of industry, of culture, have been actively involved in the sickest of all sins. And here is a film that should be met with bipartisan agreement, where people could just kind of lay down their typical keyboard warrior approach and say, all right, nice film. Thank you. You think it's the ultimate, how could you find something wrong with the film? How could you find something wrong with a movie that is about an individual's heroism to save a child from child sex trafficking? Well, the media is now in full out attack mode, as we predicted. They're trying to say this is a QAnon film.
Kelly Clarkson responds to report accusing her daytime talk show of being a toxic workplace
"Kelly Clarkson says she wants to maintain a healthy and safe work environment after accusations arise that her daytime talk show is toxic. The response by the talk show host and singer on Instagram follows a Rolling Stone report that includes allegations made by 11 current and former employees complaining about being overworked and underpaid on the Kelly Clarkson show, and also called their work traumatizing in the report the anonymous employees called Clarkson fantastic, but producers, monsters, Clarkson says it's unacceptable. People feel this way. She loves her team. There's always room to grow. So we'll now include leadership training for all senior staff, even herself. I'm Julie Walker.
AOC Slams CNN Over Trump Town Hall
"Check out headlines from the left. Look at these headlines. Daily Beast, CNN failed America with its train wreck of a Trump town hall. Rolling Stone, effing disgrace, CNN gifts Trump, a prime time campaign rally. How about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez holy mole to see her? She went on TV last night, she was furious. They weren't even going to talk about it. In fact, she said that on MSNBC because I know you weren't going to talk about here's AOC last night whining about the town hall. You know, I know you said earlier that you will not comment on the platforming of such atrocious disinformation, but I would. I think it was a profoundly irresponsible decision. I don't think that it would, I would be doing my job if I did not say that. And what we saw tonight was a series of extremely irresponsible decisions that put a sexual abuse victim at risk that put that person at risk in front of a national audience and I could not have disagreed with it more. It was shameful. Shameful, shame CNN, shame. And like I always say, give credit where credit is due, CNN didn't have to do it.
Victor Davis Hanson Comments on the Cannibalization of America
"No matter where you look, it's as bad as it could get or getting close. And it's beginning to affect people who ordinarily wouldn't be affected. I think that's right. And look what the gains have happened in just the last year. So you have Elon Musk willing to lose $40 billion. And he took Twitter out of the left hands, and that was their greatest social media weapon. And he put it in the general domain as a disinterested platform. That was an amazing development. We kind of underappreciate that. We have other people like Matt Talib. I remember he was a Rolling Stone reporter. I was an object of attacks from him a lot. But the point is that he got sick, or Glenn greenwald, or Bill Maher, or all of these people who were on the left that had large audiences of certain even Joe Rogan, all of these people have now said the ultimate expression of this progressive agenda which at one time I bought into is what we see now and they're cannibalizing anybody on the left who doesn't completely agree with them and it's not sustainable and therefore I'm going to use my talents as I used to promote this agenda I'm going to try to oppose it. That's something that I think is important. It's going to be very important. I think politically in this next presidential primary cycle that whether you're for desantis or Trump or whatever your candidate can that everybody agrees to support the nominee because we do not have a Romney McCain candidate of any stature, all of these candidates have bought into the conservative populist agenda, tough on China, closed borders, tough on crime, jacksonian, don't tread on me foreign policy. We're not, we're not going to have an ideological fight, at least among the frontrunners. So while we all have preferences for one or the other, there's no margin of error.
Pat Boone Has Always Been a Beacon of Wholesomeness
"Fascinating that at that young age, you were presented as this image of a wholesomeness and already in the 50s. Look, this is just the way of the world. The dark side is always attractive. And people don't understand what they're getting into. You know, you kind of think like, wow, Elvis Presley, the idea that he died of a drug overdose bloated Iraq at age 42. It breaks your heart. How many of those people they trod that path? And they died so young whether they were talking to Jimi Hendrix or anybody, any name, you know, Jim Morrison. I mean, on and on and on and on and you represent it obviously something very, very different. And The Rolling Stones and even The Beatles, if they were experimenting with drugs, they were very wealthy, and they could go to Switzerland and then have their blood transfused. Yes, Keith Richards famously had to get a blood transfusion because he was so loaded up with drugs. He's like, not a problem. I'll just go to some clinic in Switzerland, and we'll take care of that. Yeah, but kids were dying by the thousands following examples with the drugs that they couldn't afford to have their blood transfused. And people weren't even making well, there was a connection, but I mean, you know, you couldn't blame them for just sinking in their songs and living their lives the way they wanted to. But the fallout from it was too bad. It was very unfortunate. And of course, here I was had four daughters living in Beverly Hills and going to church regularly and riding bestselling books of Christian principles. And yet having rock and roll records at the same time. And so I was okay.
Death Penalty for Abortions Considered in New South Carolina Bill
"Here's Rolling Stone this week. 21 South Carolina GOP lawmakers proposed death penalty for women who have abortions. Here's the way Rolling Stone characterized it. Rolling Stone not exactly, you know, the national review. It's not just a lone extremist, the bill has 21 co sponsors in the state's House of Representatives. Members of the South Carolina state House are considering a bill that would make a woman who has an abortion in South Carolina, eligible for the death penalty. It's called the South Carolina prenatal equal protection act. Of 2023, it would amend the state's code of laws redefining person to include a fertilized egg at the point of conception, affording equal protection under the homicide laws of the state, up to and including the ultimate punishment, death. I'm as pro life as it comes, and I admit, I have to struggle sometimes with optics of the abortion debate. Exceptions for rape and incest always troubled me. What did the baby conceive by a violent criminal act like a rape due to deserve being aborted? It's not the baby's fault. And yet exceptions for rape and incest is a pretty mainstream carve out for the pro life position. Well, now you go to South Carolina where 21 lawmakers believe that having an abortion should fall under the criminal statutes that would lead to the potential of a woman who got an abortion receiving the death penalty.
Another Attempt to Smear a Conservative
"Oh, I'm the Human Rights Campaign. Jeff wachowski. National campaign director told Rolling Stone their words rile up far right extremists, resulting in more stigma at discrimination and violence against LGBTQ+ people. Can I ask a question? Yeah, I can, actually, is rhetorical. What does T I have asked this for 20 years? What does T have to do with LGB? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Does a gay person there's a gay male think he's a female? There's a gay female think she's a male? What if he talking about? Nothing. What they're doing, they're trying to get the LG bees, lesbian gays and bisexuals all angered up. At the conservative world, by associating anything said about transgender with gay.
Woody Harrelson Cracks SNL Jokes at Big Pharma's Expense
"We're going to play the entire tape, which is cut ten. It's a minute long of Woody Harrelson, saying a lot of things that are true. An SNL and the response from the media has just been overwhelming. He said something relatively benign, nothing that was that aggressive or that controversial, so actually we're going to go to cut 7, this is Woody Harrelson hosting SNL on big pharma's response to COVID-19 play cut 7. Okay, so the movie goes like this. The biggest drug cartels in the world get together and buy up all the media and all the politicians and force all the people in the world stay locked in their homes and people can only come out if they take the cartels drugs and keep taking them over and over. I threw the script away. I mean, who is going to believe that crazy idea? Now did he go off script? Was he saying something that wasn't actually on script or was he talking about a hypothetical movie script that he would throw it away saying there's no way that's actually true. What you heard right there again was just kind of an offhand remark. Was it, was it spontaneous? Was it scripted? Who knows? But Woody Harrelson is saying something that's totally true. The media is purchased by big tech. They're purchased by Pfizer. The entire media, if you look at one after the other after the other, they say brought to you by Pfizer, brought to you by Pfizer. And the response to Woody Harrelson saying just that little remark has been extraordinary. Let me read some of these headlines here. Variety magazine. Woody Harrelson Saturday Night Live monologue makes COVID conspiracy jokes, Huffington Post. Woody Harrelson rambles about weed, anti vax conspiracy and SNL monologue. Woody Harrelson spews anti vax conspiracies in rambling SNL monologue. Woody Harrelson spreads anti vax conspiracies during SNL monologue, literally the same headline for the Rolling Stone and Daily Beast. There's not an original thought that these people ever have.
"rolling stone" Discussed on Milk Crates and Turntables. A Music Discussion Podcast
"There's this list. So last week, I was with the music relish guys, they were on the show, and we were talking about feuds. And one of them was Ted nugent and Joan Jett and how Ted nugent still has hot burn with Joan Jett being put on the hundred great guitarists list. And I do too. I did two she has no right to be on that. For the sole reason of, in my, in my opinion, that they put her in there, but they left off Ted nugent. Zack Wilde, Johnny fucking ma, Dimebag Darrell, Alvin Lee, John 5, you see that fucking guys, his resume. Guy is no fucking joke on the guitar. And they put fucking Joan Jett in there. It's one of the hundred greatest guitars. She's actually listed and I'm going to give you the list. And these are the people that this idiot ranked behind her, okay? So at 100, you have Kim tail guitarists from soundgarden, right? Yep. Then you have a 99 Greg jinn blues based rock player. He played with black flag, I guess. Lee Stevens, do you know where that is? He was a heavy metal, he was playing at 68 before heavy metal at a name. He was one of those shredders of eardrums. Number 97 Robert Rudolph, pedal steel guitarist. Great guitar play. Number 96, Angus young. They fucking Joan Jett, ahead of Angus young. I have a little bit of a fucking issue with that one. Number 95, Kevin shields, he played with my bloody Valentine. They were what they referred to in the 90s. It came right after the mad Chester scene shoe gazer, they call it shoe gaze music where they were just the band would just stand there and play. And he was one of the architects of it because he just stood there and stared down the whole show at his feet. So they call him shoe gazes. What year did this list come out? 2015, I think it says. But there hasn't been one that I found that's been updated by Rolling Stone. But just the fact that they made that hundred greatest. I mean, they're not going to, the people they left off should have been on there even in 2015. So you had Bert Janice, Fred, sonic Smith from MC 5, and you got Wayne Kramer for them, C 5. Robbie Krieger, she's evidently better than him. Glenn buxton, the Boone,

"Back, chuck. And we're here to talk about now some of the low points of Rolling Stone history. This isn't a hit piece. No, but I mean, I think all of the things that we're going to talk about in the last bit here can be classified under one in one big bucket, which is bad journalism, lazy journalism, abandoning journalistic integrity for the sake of an article, and it's really a shame that they've done this kind of repeatedly. Rolling over on top of showgirl right now. Oh boy, that's a sight. So I guess chief among these sort of high profile instances is the 2014 article, a rape on campus by Sabrina early, which made all kinds of news. It was a story about a gang rape at the University of Virginia at a fraternity house. And the more the story was investigated, the more it came out that not only were there a lot of big time journalistic flaws, but eventually lawsuits and full retraction of the story and police investigations that the story was made up. I mean, journalism one O one flaws. Like the author Sabrina Rubin early did not interview Friends. Who came out publicly and said, hey, what the story is saying is not what Jackie, the pseudonym of the woman who claimed to have been, I think gang raped even fraternity house. That's not what she told us that night. There wasn't even a party that night. And apparently it just became more and more clear that the entire event did not happen. And that The Rolling Stones journalists who they sent out to do this really important story did not didn't do some basic fact checking and as a result just bought the whole thing hook line and sinker. Yeah, and in the end, Rolling Stone ended up either losing or settling a bunch of lawsuits with administration at UVA, some of the students and the fraternity at UVA, it came out during this process that apparently there were text messages that seemed to support the idea that this young woman made this up to gain the affection of a boy on campus. I tried to look as much into it as I could, but in the end they completely retracted the article, which is a really big deal for a major publication to fully retract and say, all right, this article we do not stand by it. We're taking it, we have takes these backs privileges. And they even commission, I guess, to their credit, a Columbia University school of journalism review and published that the findings of that review, which were not kind. No, the review was titled tsk tsk tsk. But even worse thing, Rolling Stone losing face and credibility and millions of dollars is that this was used as shorthand for people who kind of who were like, we shouldn't really believe rape survivors. And that has a chilling effect on actual rape survivors from coming forward and like naming their accusers. It was a huge, huge problem that was created by this that, you know, I think it would even came up in the Brett Kavanaugh hearing somebody basically used it for that. And two. Camille Cosby talked about it on the courthouse steps. Are you serious? Oh yeah. Wow. So yeah, so it was a big deal and it was a big fall down and you can really easily point to that as the biggest mistake in the history of Rolling Stone magazine by far. Yeah, another big one was an article in 2003 from Gregory Freeman about what's called bug chasers, which is what appears to be a very fringe thing where gay men want to be HIV positive and try to have unprotected sex with people they know are HIV positive and basically the same kind of thing. Not a lot of fact checking, he interviewed a couple of doctors who he says they said that they said it was like 25% of the gay male community are bug chasers and both of the doctors said, I never said that at all. Like I said the opposite and then the author later came out and said, no, I remember those conversations explicitly and they're just not admitting to it. And I didn't record the interviews, which you should probably always do. Right. And so that was obviously another big sort of black eye on the magazine. Yeah, and then so, and I think it was they were saying 25% of new HIV cases come from bug chasers or something. Yeah, yeah, I think that mistake. But it's still it's just a ridiculously ridiculous amount. So chuck, this was in the past, right? There was another big one too, another big flub. They sent Sean Penn to interview El Chapo, like the most powerful vicious drug cartel leader in the world. They sent Sean Penn to do it and Sean Penn sent back a dispatch that was really flattering, really sympathetic and really one sided. And so they were really criticized for that as well. But that's all in the past. Rolling Stone is refound its footing correct and everything's all good now. No, apparently not correct. Just recently, I remember just reading this in my subscription, not too long ago. They wrote an article about Taylor Hawkins after he very soon after he died that a lot of the people in the article famous musicians that were quoted came out and said, wait a minute, this is really taken out of context. I didn't mean this stuff. I didn't say this stuff. The article kind of basically said that the Foo Fighters kind of killed him with their schedule and that Dave Grohl wouldn't let up and had a big breeze. It was a big reason why he died. And that was a very recent stain. They also did a hit piece on Maryland Manson that didn't present any of his side of the story. He was accused of sexual abuse by an ex-girlfriend Evan Rachel Wood, and it was very one sided in a lot of people came out and said, the ones who were quoted were like, I gave them paragraphs and paragraphs of stuff and they used one sentence, you know, because I was speaking out in defense of Marilyn Manson. There's also one that was considered having given a moral victory to anti vaxxers, they posted a story about how Oklahoma's emergency rooms were being overrun with people who are having toxic reactions to Ivermectin who are taking that cattle dewormer when they caught COVID and apparently it was just fake wrong. Not only that, they ran a picture of people lined up wearing masks in winter coats and the events that they described were took place in summer. So it was just from top to bottom, a terrible story. And that seems to be what's going on. And I read an article on a website called saving country music. And this author basically points to the hiring of Noah schacht from The Daily Beast to take over and Noah schachmann said, we're going to start making our journalism more immediate, more visceral and faster, louder and harder. And this saving country music person is like, that's the opposite of what journalists are supposed to do. When you do things fast and immediate, your sacrificing like follow-ups, getting secondary sources, fact checking, and that seems to be where a lot of the most recent flubs and biff

"So yeah, you know, Ed is very astute to point out that the origins of Rolling Stone is kind of born out of this sort of certainly in 1960s, but maybe even before left wing alt rags that are self published. These sort of poorly printed black and white magazines about the counterculture that never really desired to make money. And most of them were super regional and never went outside of usually the city that they were in as far as distribution. But Rolling Stone was kind of born out of this idea and in particular got a lot of its influence from a San Francisco based magazine called ramparts. Yeah, which was like far, far left radical left politics magazine. There was a headline and I think 1968, maybe even earlier than that, that ramparts ran. It was ramparts offers $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of any cop who is murdered a black man. That was on the cover. But it was on their cover and there's like a cop pointing a gun at you, the viewer from the magazine's cover. And that's, you know, okay, shocking, especially for even back then. But it's even more shocking when you realize that just a few years before, ramparts have been lost as an intellectual Catholic quarterly. Yeah, I mean, I don't even know why they kept the same name. It was a complete redo. It really was, and the guy who redid it was a guy named Warren hinkle, and you can't talk about Rolling Stone without talking about Warren hinkle. That's right. He transformed that magazine into that leftist rag that they knew. And obviously big and San Francisco. But it reached national levels of fame, if not like widespread fame, like the writers were like featured on talk shows and other kind of notably, I guess when you're a magazine being written in by other magazine being written about by other magazines, you've definitely made your mark and Time Magazine even had a very famous article called a bomb in every issue. I think it was a cover article on ramparts magazine. And though it would exist alongside rowing stone for a little while in the 70s, it was not a big widespread financial success. And obviously because of his politics, had a pretty just by nature of what it was, a sort of limited audience. Right. And so Jan winner, who was one of the founders of Rolling Stone and who basically personified Rolling Stone over the decades because he was the CEO for years and years and years. He was involved in ramparts through a guy named Ralph gleason who will meet in a second. But the upshot of this is that Jan winter saw ramparts what it was doing, how important it was, and that it never really took off. I saw it blew through at least two personal fortunes, rampart magazine did before. It declared bankruptcy. And he noted that, and he kind of took it to heart for his magazine Rolling Stone, and the lesson for him was reflect the counterculture without actually furthering the agenda and you can probably be absorbed by much more people and be palatable to advertisers too. Yeah, and as far as winter goes, he himself was a college dropout from Berkeley. He is sort of the personification of what we now think of as like the boomer generation. Which is to say that he and probably still does, you know, just sort of law that generation and everything they did as the utmost importance and the music of the time and the movements of the time were truly historic and not to be trifled with and also in a sort of boomer esque way. But you know what's great is making tons of money. And being a capitalist. And loving Coke. Sure. Yeah, I'm sure that was not, I'm sure they were not in short supply. No, they weren't showing off. He was very famous for his ability to put away bags of cocaine. All right, so you mentioned Ralph gleason who were going to meet. He was a jazz critic and music critic who also dabbled in The Rock and roll world. But he was not a boomer. He was born in, I think, 1917. So he was 30 ish years older than Venter, and they met at a Jefferson Airplane concert. And became buddies. And I think January winner really looked up to him and they sort of developed a mentor relationship mentor mentee. Is that what it is? It depends. So if gleason was strictly kind of advising and training and teaching Jan Weiner, that would make him a mentee. But if he did anything to further Jan wenner's career, which he ended up doing, that would make winner his protege. Okay, well, let's just say it was a mix of both. Sure. I looked it up and I really wanted to share that. I got you. There is a distinction. Sure. But they were friends and I believe it was gleason that also worked for ramparts, some, and then when ramparts fell apart, they hatched the idea for Rolling Stone magazine. Well, so gleason left even before ramparts fell apart because Warren hinkle did not love the psychedelic rock era did not love hippies. And Ralph gleason did, even though he was a jazz critic, he definitely got the psychedelic movement and was very appreciative of it and wrote very kindly about it in his columns in ramparts. But they're falling out happened when Warren hinkle ran the social history of the hippies, which was a pretty unflattering cover story about hippies and the summer of love and how basically he accused them of falling down on the job of taking over the responsibility to steer the country. And instead they were just off like dropping acid ensuring their responsibility, which would pan out to be really prescient when you're talking about the baby boom boomer generation, right? And Ralph gleason didn't appreciate that at all. So he left in disgust. He quit ramparts. And that was about the time when winter was like, hey, let's make a magazine together. Summer of love, 1970, who can forget. I know. Oh wait, no, it was 72. 72. Yeah. Because John Travolta play that Woodstock. For that summer of love concert in 72. Oh boy, I always feel bad for people who don't pick up on the inside jokes. Yeah. We'll get some emails. That's all right. It's fun. So again, hatch this idea together. And they really kind of borrowed a lot from ramparts. Not the least of which was their logo. If you look at the ramparts logo, it's I don't know if it's exactly the same font. I'm sure there's they probably technically might have made a new font. But it looks a lot like that font. And not the original Rolling Stone magazine file, because the earliest issues, it was definitely a little bit different, but the one that we all know today is the Rolling Stone font. Looks a lot like ramparts. They definitely hired away a lot of people from that magazine, including some of the designers, some of the writers, some of the, some of the editors, photographers. And even the office space, they raised, they wanted to raise ten grand, but they ended up raising $7500 from a variety of investors, including Jane winter. And her family, who was Jan winner's wife, who actually had a much larger role in the early days of the magazine than I believe she's

Seven hundred seventy two hundred dollars. Whatever it was. Yeah yeah so. What i think we had talked about it on one episode that some people thought just because andy warhol came up with the design of sticky fingers the album that he also designed the tongue which is a lot of even even though even though You know Collie was supposed to be the inspiration for the the tongue and lips. He kind of admitted that jaguars really the inspiration for his dry fits. Yeah of course. Of course you when they first started using it. Hold on this. This might be the thing that leads to the confusion. Hold on so they started using it on was it. was it sticky fingers. It was sticky fingers. Yeah because i was thinking of the fun like i. I didn't see the logo on it. Yeah sticky fingers so there you go with the at the same time as the album. Andy warhol. Yeah that's a good point in and sticky fingers you know the the he designed that andy warhol any warhol in his his group from the factory they made the design of that record in it actually had the workings zipper at one point. They wanted to put a balloon in there but it was too expensive to to get that done in pretty soon after when they started to do reprints of the record. They actually got rid of the real zebra. You know why zip was ruining album covers. It was winning the album. That's right because they were all coming in these boxes and they're all pressed together.

"As. We'd cleared the biggest band in the world right now. I don't think there's really any doubt about that as you know. They are. Seven man pop group from south korea with three rappers and four singers all ridiculously good dancers and no one has achieved anything like what they've achieved. No group from south korea or anywhere in asia as had anywhere the kind of success that bcs has had in the us and markets. They are under third number one single in the united states. The new one is called butter and the second english language single from them. And it's very much in the vein of dynamite. The previous english language single. But it's got a charm all tone. It's great but these english language singles if it's all you know about really only scratched the surface. There's so much more to them. There's a lot of depth there. I would definitely recommend checking out my interviews if you get a chance but today. I also wanted to talk to young kim who wrote a book called. Bt s the review. He is a seoul based music critic and musicologist. He actually as he came to the states to get a phd in musicology and he's been covering crean music since the late nineties. And he wrote the first book ever about hip hop in south korea and so we had a pretty in depth conversation about bt s and a little bit about the history of pop music in south korea and hip hop and south korea. The conversation started off with young. Kim explaining when he first heard about bt s back in two thousand thirteen well honestly. I sense the significance of or more. Broadly this new format hip hop idol. In k pop would be a something important in a lot of ways. I mean that's was two thousand twelve. I guess or thirteen. I heard about the group. Actually maybe it was just a prototype. I i don't think it just just the same group as is now. But i heard from my colleague that producer punk shijo is preparing a new group largely based on hip hop but the format will be capable so i thought that was interesting idea in a lot of ways first of all i actually well like i said earlier. I was deeply interested in korean hip hop scene from leon and i happen to write a book about korean hip hop for the first time in south korea which is hungary pop your that. She translating current hip hop the footsteps the passion. That was two thousand six and the reason i wrote. That book actually was the fear. You know the concern that i had at the time i thought honestly the crew and hip hop was dying at the time around two thousand five two thousand six but you know then several years past and i heard from my colleague about the group yes and i thought that was really weird but at the same time we really fascinating idea combining hip hop and pop idol capable idol format because for me k. Pop was still is all about. You know heavy production control management you know the forging talent fostering talent. You know at the same time but for me hip hop like you know it's all about representation. I mean it's it's about identity about who you are will you from who or what you representing. Well at the time. I heard the news about you know the glue. Pta's i thought you would be complete game changer or up. Total disaster honestly then. I saw their name. Because i was in the united states in the all these like the ups and downs and success and treatment of k pop in the us. Us market for instance. I can them style and other boy bands in grow groups. I saw their name on the list of the show call k. Con is the biggest k pop festival in the us by cj entertainment right. Yeah so. I was just instantly intrigued by the idea and the group because at the time were they're not the only hip hop buydell. Actually we had big bang block. B b p. They're all great. They really had their own career and their own moment and big bang was actually probably the most well known k pop group at the time alone with Super junior and exo and shiny. So well. So i kind of carefully. Monitored the group's career from two thousand thirteen. But i mean from from the very first moment. I saw them in person i mean i. I didn't have any like a chance of doing interview. Or what but i. When i first watched their performance and a k khan and watch the fan and the really small but devoted fans just to say manage day. They still have these days. I was so mass memorized. So shocked by the power of phantoms. In the an idea of these fans had saying that. Bts's to thin or something different from pre existing capable idols. So i i was instantly hooked by the group itself and the music and And the fan reaction as you well know. Army is not as his fans are known these days. Many don't like to put s in the k pop category. An and the group themselves have complicated feelings about that. When i talked to him about that he he said ultimately it doesn't matter but he didn't really endorse. Bts is part of k pop the idea sort of that their own genre. Which i think there's there's an argument for that said historically i think to understand where they came from. You have to look a little bit at the state of k pop and it's very significant. Of course that what big hit. Which is their agency their label and is now part of. It became this giant public company. Hi was at the time of their debut in two thousand thirteen was this tiny startup in an industry dominated by big companies. So maybe you could kind of just explain all that for minute. What the landscape look like in two thousand thirteen and why. It was a struggle to come from this the startup for them. Yeah first of all the discussion. The cape hop in bts being not k pop or something something like that well. I think it's the confusion is there because the word k. Pob doesn't really mean anything except for the fact k. Pop is korean popular music but the thing is it's a kind word that people used from outsiders point of view because we i mean before two thousand two thousand. We korean cringe analyst. People really didn't have to call a cape up. yeah i'll music is a type of industry but k up. It was just a just a word that the foreign journalist started to us you know naming after the war j pop because they are already familiar with the idea of j pop but the the thing is the first music or the music that was popular at the time was idle music or worse something similar so it really made that kind of confusion. That k pop is all about idle music. Even though the word. K pop doesn't really mean something about idol. Was something like that. That confusion actually made people like me or that. They really felt they have to distinguish themselves from the idea of k pop but technically capable is just korean popular music but the problem is the usage. Know it's not the definition. Yeah i mean. That's that's i wanted to point out producer. Punk rock will formerly a really talented composer producer in jail. Ip he already had a great career as a composer but he said he'd felt that. There's gotta be something else. Beyond these like k pop idol format or formula. It can be idle music but it can be different. That's his idea. But i think it's it's really associated with the more more genuine authentic artistry still based on idol format and a lot of really amazing narrative than stories so round the time has made debut. Yes there are three giants. You mentioned that ba kit high right now but be kit at the time was really small company really small company and actually they pro. The show was really desperate at the time. 'cause i mean it was almost the end of his. Actually kind of the company was actually dying at the time because they didn't really make any substantial success. So be the groupie says even though the idea was really in revolutionary and really the the musical day had their own group talent like composers and arranger in the puncture himself is amazing some riders so they had talent but they didn't have any like resources like money or promoters in some slack that power so it was hard competition and Not many people probably. Nobody actually believed that batista's from became would be our next big thing and the situation remained premature. Same up until two thousand seventeen. I guess When bts one the first social top social artist category at the billboard music award and the appeared for the first time at the american music awards show which really boosted their popularity back in south korea to pay attention to the group for years after their debut was fascinated to learn that.

"Good thing you be. Where have you been my dog. That was considered pretty blasphemous at the time because it was almost irreverent version. It was not a you know Kind of folk version. You know rendition. you so you have to remember in the early in the early seventies when that came out it was considered pretty pretty out there and it was pretty controversial. People hated it. But i listening back to this list. I i really liked it a lot. I think again. It's an example of someone just like really recasting a song in their own million as it were. I think it is aged. Really well of which i i get a kick at. I love my chemical romance. And i get a kick of what they did but i don't know it's desolation road. I can't tell if it's good or just sort of fun to me. I mean look to me. There's no topping the original desolation row. Which is just like this. All time classic dylan song but i will say i appreciate that cover in the sense that it introduced that song to a whole new generation of people who now listen to love that song. Even if they're not listening to bob's version it helps the song live on. And i appreciate that much of a comment but but yeah fair enough. Yes it did help. The it did translate to a new generation and it was. It was interesting to hear them. Take it on davidson. Sure jeff buckley expert him doing just like a woman. What was he actually inspired by the nina simone version. A little bit. That's a good question. i'm not really sure. No he grew up. Jeff grew up. Hearing bob dylan records from like his mom and stuff so she had all those I don't know if she had nina. Simone records and he wasn't being fan but he moved york nineties and in columbia. Who just like worship dylan and leonard cohen haley jackson and always people and just gave jeff all those. When the columbia you know Back catalogue closet. Just gave him all these records and and that's just really covering a lot of the songs i think he is. Version is it adds a whole new kind of tender aspect to it that necessarily in bob's which is obligated mendocino's verbally. Let's just a minute of david. Brown talking rambling. Jack elliott about bob dunne is a story about hearing a song for the first time i think at a party with bob playing it. I i remember Whether it was at first time ever or just another time in cambridge we were at a party at taj mahals house and bob was seeing a song that he'd just written about emmett till and he was standing in the living room surrounded by about thirty people. And if you were standing six feet away you couldn't hear what he was saying. But because of the thick pro around him but i was standing one layer back from the center and i could i could hear what he was saying and one of the people there but i didn't know it then was a young girl named bonnie raitt and i later met bonnie raitt at a folk festival and she was performing and she said you remember being dazs thousand bible saying is that And we were all there. And i said oh. I didn't know who she was at the time in the crowd. You know but she was soap reminisce about that great party that because i think that was the first time she'd ever met bob. Well that was in Probably nineteen sixty three. What was it like hearing him sing that song like a protests political song there was no microphone. Novak bunch of people you know and trying to sing it allowed the good to project you know through the crowd so everybody room but it wasn't loud enough to hear more than four people away but it was good. He had a tremendous amount of force of energy and emotion is singing but Most people didn't like it sounded his voice at all because it sounded like a kind of a teenager screaming at his parents or so it was kind of a annoying raspy tone people were all complaining so worry about the singing by listen to the words. I always don't shut up into. Yeah he was seeing song about that murder and emmett till and the whole thing and and how powerful and was very powerful hearing him. I thought that was very powerful. Yes because you could feel his anger it. He translated that very well through the words and kind of deliberately stupid strom that he invented on guitar. He's very good guitar player. I love that played even back then but he had invented a sort of a dramatized. Dumb strom I just made that word up now to decide that and then i mean I never could find words to tell you what what that strum. I just found a words down. Thank you she That's what it was. It was kind of a deliberately monotonous and the rhythm and speed would kind of speed of it slowdown and speed up and slow down with the emotional content of the words so it was. The guitar was directly wired to Is emotional state as he was seeing. I and i thought that was even a very clever way of having guitar. Be part of the vocal. Yeah that.

"Ideas You know and i can understand bob side because what did you get a sense of what lenoir wanted from those from those sessions. Those kind of odd. Did you know. I mean he. He directs some of this stuff. That bob would come in and say you know i wanted more this way. I here at this way. You know. And so i can understand bob and he wrote a song. You wanted a certain way right. It's much more as an earthier record. I mean then. Then maybe then landlo- number he has that sort of those sort of sonic soundscape things that he does really well but and he did he really well on oh mercy but maybe maybe bob didn't want it on this phone or you know he did you. He did a lot of stupid youtube. Yeah yeah so. I think if you have a hit record of big hit record one group you're going to try to use that influence on somebody else right you know. Yeah yeah totally different. Black and white and i right. What would they debate in front of you guys or was that something. They talked about on the corner. You know around for a couple of minutes. I remember sometime. We'd be in the studio recording and baba. Just get up from the guitar walkout. We're just sitting there waiting. What's going on but half our leaders bob. I'd rather buy well. He you know he come back in. I'd say hey what's going on. And he's all. I wanna do it my way. I'm gonna do it this way. You know and i mean he he'd have to be by self to figure out. What are you really wanted. And he did it. Though biking motorcycle we had an actual regular boxer angle bicycles so that was the legendary texas musician. Og myers with david brown. And we're back to talking about bob dylan on his eightieth birthday. Now number two on our list of the greatest don't covers of all time is nina simone. Doing just like tom thumb's blues. Lost is the time and man. Is that great. Like everyone of her. She does just like a woman in another everyone of her doing coverage are just extraordinary and kind of just take them into a new a whole other universe. There's so many people from so many different genres who sang doing songs. And so many people of color sam cooke blown in the wind is a number seven. I think one of the things that people get a little bit confused about with bob dylan is especially now is like i was just some like boring white male boomer and the thing is i think any fair assessment of his impact and his greatness kind of transcends assignment would that be fair. You want kind of dig into that for a second absolutely. I think you can see dylan's influence across so many different genres and it's incredibly reductive view. Someone who just part of one scene or one moment or one genre. Bob dylan was famously. Incredibly influenced by great black artists. Who went before him. Data inspired him to pick up an acoustic guitar and sing and he paid that influence forward on generation after generation of songwriters of all kinds all genres. And that's one of the things that makes his discography last the way that it has. I mean it's obviously very interesting. To see the influence from say data to bob dylan and then sam cooke hearing bullying the wind. And then then. Sam cooke turning around and writing a change is gonna come in part inspired by dylan so he. He is one of those people who helped make american music like a series of tributaries a series of buys of that flow into each other. You know and that's a big part of what he did. going to. number three is The birds mr tambourine man. It's.

"It is an opportunity to reflect upon all that bob dole has given us and he's he's given us a lot. Maybe we start by taking a look at this list that we at rolling stone released this week to celebrate the birthday and it was the eighty greatest covers of bob dylan songs and let's start with argument ranked very high on. That list is knocking on heaven's door by guns and roses. And certainly when i was in high school i thought that absolutely ruled. I don't know. I don't know if it's great horrible. Bob apparently hated it when he was asked about it. He said something very interesting about guns and roses basically suggested that they were fake. Which i don't agree with him on but he was not a fan of it. which isn't unsurprising. I just don't know if it's good or ridiculous. I i can't decide what we're we're obviously. We institutionally landed on great. Since it's like number seven and list but what do we think beyond. I sort of scratch my head a little bit at that one to being so high up on the list you know. I think it's also a case. Where in bob's original of that. Most of his originals are hard to top. That one secure. Bob's original is so it's so kind of ghostly powerful in high always found two guns and roses Screeching and so yeah. I wish they'd been a little lower on the list myself. I say yeah. If you look at the guns and roses songs where they covered nineteen seventy-three soundtrack classics. It's the worst live on. That dies much much. Better for nineteen seventy-three psych soundtrack. Song by guns and

"More or less. Bob dylan's eightieth. Birthday was his eightieth birthday. The other day. Happy birthday bob dylan. Someone told a story about when when it was bob's birthday. One day on the rolling thunder tour in the whole crowd sang. Happy birthday to him and he hid facing the amps. While they sing. So i can only imagine his reaction to the world's celebration of his eightieth birthday. I'm sure you clicked on every logistical And just really based in just really felt the world's love and it was great for him any. How do you think anything of spent his eightieth birthday. I think it's worth noting that his only social media post that mentioned we're selling a new edition of heaven's gate whisky brand. That was the only formal that was the only marking that you know. He was photographed by the paparazzi. Recently which is pretty rare and so he's still upright but he hasn't. I imagine birthday was quiet dinner at his house in malibu or something i just had no idea. We know the the things that bob does for fun. What he paints he He scopes those wrought iron gates that he likes to do the whisky brand is named after he probably did some nice wrought iron sculpting and painting if i had to guess and then maybe a nice dinner. That sounds about right. Bob tour finally came to a halt for a year. He spent the last year at home and that is a year. I'm very curious about will. Never probably find out but this is a man who is been on tour consistently since since when andy well he started the never ending tour back in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight but his last year where he didn't make one live appearance that entire year with one thousand nine hundred seventy seven before twenty twenty so this is probably a bit of a stir crazy dona. I imagine unless you know unless he realized he liked it. And maybe he'll cut down on touring here in his ninth decade. There's been no announcement of more dates yet. When plenty of acts are announcing shows at this point he could be on the road as soon as next month if he wanted to be. And there's no word yet. I would like to thank him for not saying anything. Weird about the virus. Unlike some of his classic rock contemporaries. He said not one weird or disturbing thing about covid nineteen. There's still time. But he said nothing. The only thing he propagated conspiracy theories about was the jfk assassination and he did so so artfully in that tremendous song that i'm actually inclined to forgive him. I think that that that song was a magnificent and he did give us a new album. Pretty good album. We'll sleepy but great stuff on it. Simon does not think it was sleepy. Not sleepy at all that. That is a wide awake fully alert doing them. But it is an opportunity to reflect upon all that bob dole has given us and he's he's given us a lot.
