A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 11/8/23
"Live or Memorex, that is the great Minnie Riperton. You were 15, Mike. Remember that on the radio? I do remember that. Loving you. The Tweety Birds in the background made it an easy song to make fun of. It seemed like a very shallow lyric to me. Loving you is easy because you're beautiful. I know. Is that really where you want to... That's it? I mean, how shallow and superficial are you? What if you got like a big old mole on your cheek? Bad skin. Dermatological. Anyway, the great Minnie Riperton would have been 76 today. Famous, famous daughter, do you know? The gal from Saturday Night Live? Yes, the wonder, wonderful comic actress Maya Rudolph. Maya Rudolph. I was forgetting her first name. Bridesmaids, dude. Oh my gosh. If you're ever in a bad mood, you rent bridesmaids. Just watch Bridesmaids. That's a little crass, a little crude, especially the bridal shop suite. Oh, it's happening. It's happening. It's happening. Look away. Look away. In the middle of the street with a digestive issue. Oh my goodness. Hey, listen, I've got digestive issues this morning after. I didn't know what my expectations were. They were not high. It's Ohio and you figure, well, maybe they're not up for baby killing, but they were. And I think that the weed vote, the legal pot vote brought out all the young stupid people and that's how you get your abortion advocacy in Ohio. Listen, let me just let you talk because as pro -lifers, we've got a lot of work to do. We have a lot of work to do and that's why tonight's debate is part of the process. We're in the spin room right now and I'm just getting ready for interesting dueling events. You've got Trump down the street in Hialeah. You have five candidates on this stage tonight and I hope that they bring this up. I hope they bring up the abortion problem that the Republican Party has and that's all anybody's talking about. What do you want them to say? Well, we have to say something differently because every single election has gone down in flames since Roe v. Wade was overturned. And we got a battle going on within the party and I want to give you a little preview tonight because I got a chance to visit with Hugh Hewitt last night. He gave me some tips about what to look for as he's been here in preparation. He's one of the moderators. Salem Media Group, our parent company, is the official radio partner along with NBC, Rumble, and the Republican Jewish Coalition for tonight's third GOP presidential debate and five candidates are going to be on that stage. One thing I know for sure, they're going to have a decidedly somber tone tonight. They're going to be serious. We know with Hamas and the war in Israel and, frankly, with the shellacking that the GOP took last night, particularly in Virginia, Republicans have a ton of work to do. And the abortion problem has to be dealt with. There's no way around it. You can stomp your feet and you can say, I'm a proud pro -life American and I'm not going to bend or you're going to never win another election again. Abortion is winning for the Democrats, Mark. Now, those of you who say I'm pro -life and I'm not going to give an inch, I respect it. I admire it. I wish I wish the world worked that way. I'm sickened to say this. America's in love with abortion in this country. Find somebody in your life to love you the way Democrats love abortion. And increasingly, non -ideological folks in the squishy, mushy middle, they just flip a coin and go, all of the things being equal. I want abortion. Right. That's where we have a lot of work to do. And brow beating those people isn't going to work anymore, Mark, sitting around calling them baby killers, et cetera, et cetera. No, it just isn't going to work. Well, no, but it is what the procedure is. But I don't ever want to antagonize people. And I know you're right. In fact, let me let you finish, because I just want to see if you're wanting our Republican field to simply be demonstrably less pro -life to say, you know what, maybe we do need to allow more abortions in the following way, because I don't – No, I think I really do believe it comes down to the messaging. I don't know that Republicans – first of all, millions and millions of dollars of outside money were poured into Ohio last night by radical abortionists who convinced women that you're losing a fundamental right if you vote no on this horrific, radical – I mean, abortion now in Ohio is legal literally to the moment of conception. And in fact, parents now – Moment of birth. Moment of birth, I mean. And incidentally, parents don't even have a say in a minor child's decision to abort a baby. Now, you've got to give an okay to get a tattoo in Ohio. Yeah, exactly. Get a Tylenol in your high school. That's right. But not to get an abortion. But we lost. We got thumped on this. We got thumped on this. And we've gotten thumped on it every single time, Mark. It's not a close call. Something isn't working and Democrats are going to embrace this going into 2024. Does that mean you become decidedly pro -life? Well, I think for starters, you change the messaging as best you can. But I'm afraid that the answer you're not going to want to hear is, yeah, probably so. In 10 seconds, I think you meant decidedly pro -choice. No. Decidedly – do we become decidedly less pro -life? Yeah, less pro -life. Yeah. Do we become decidedly less pro -life? And that's the horrific reality of – how many times is it going to have to happen, Mark? How many times are we going to say, well, we're losing another election. We've lost every single election on the abortion issue since Roe v. Wade was overturned. And Mark, with all due respect, I love you. It's not just Democrats. It's not just squishy Republicans. It's women. It's women voters who believe they are – that somehow this right that is enshrined in the Constitution – oh, and oh, by the way, it's not – is being taken from them. And it's not – we just – we're not going to win by wagging our fingers at the people who don't see the world. You and I aren't where the country is on this, Mark. We're not. We are where conservatives are. And so the question becomes – and by the way, everything you've said is true and plausible and supportable. So, as we look at a presidential election and some folks on a debate stage tonight in a country where now it is left to the states, what Ohio did last night is precisely the way America goes in post -Roe v. Wade America. That's what we said we wanted. And we knew full well that there would be states that did things that we liked and states that did things that we didn't. How about if the candidates we have – and it's kind of interesting. I don't know how pro -life Chris Christie is. I know DeSantis is. I think Nikki Haley is. I sure know Tim Scott is. I think Vivek is. So should they express their – maybe satisfaction is the wrong word – their acceptance of post -Roe v. Wade America, where states are going to do what they wish to do and Ohio can do what they wish to do, but that they are going to continue to be a voice and use their presidential bully pulpit to say that protecting life is a better way, while saying that the states can do what they want to do? Well, I'm not going to be president of Ohio. I'm not going to be president of Nevada. I'm not going to be – etc. Go ahead. But that's happening. That's happening. Let me tell you. Well, let me break it to you. Roe v. Wade being overturned meant that states get to decide what to do. States are deciding what to do and they're pro -abortion. Yes. They are. Every single state. There's not a state that's deciding in favor of the pro -life movement. You know, you can say, well, we're the good conservatives in this. Except, except, except heartbeat bills, heartbeat bills, heartbeat bills in Florida, in Texas, in other states. So – Well, but that's not legislation that conflicts with what is perceived to be a woman's right to choose an abortion being taken from her. You're so right. I mean, Glenn Youngkin has floated the 15 -week idea. And let's talk about Glenn Youngkin, incidentally, because there were high hopes for Virginia. And hey, Virginia, we got our butts kicked. I mean, they flipped the legislature. They didn't even – in fact, that wasn't even on the radar. They were hoping – we were hoping that Glenn Youngkin would lead a flip of the Senate over there. They lost it all. They lost the whole state legislature. Guess what? Glenn Youngkin is no longer going to be considered a candidate for president. I've got a buddy here – Well, he never was. Well, but keep an eye on him. He's not – Not this year. I mean, does he have a future? Of course he does. Look at him at 2028. But I have a guy here, Alfredo Ortiz, who's a dear friend, the CEO of Job Creators Network, and he had a theory. In fact, he's going to be with me tomorrow here in Miami. They're sponsoring our broadcast from the post -debate spin room. Alfredo said, if Virginia has a huge night last night, Glenn Youngkin will throw his hat in the ring as the 11th -hour savior of the Republican Party. Wouldn't matter. There's no room. That would be – It's too late. That would be – It's too late. It wouldn't matter. But anyway, he got shellacked. I mean, it was a bad night for him. It was a bad night for the GOP, and there's no way around it. Hey, Tate Reeves is still governor of Mississippi, yay. We kept one. We got that. We got that. We got some – and Joe Biden is still dropping like a rock in all the polls. And Trump is rocking and rolling and continues to lead in five swing states. So there's just data all over the place that are mixed as to what 2024 is going to look like. But you get an interesting view at five people who really want to catch Trump, and not a single one of them probably will. But it'll be fun to watch anyway. What do you think happens tonight? Yeah, it'll be kind of – What's the headline? What do you think? I'm going to keep an eye on Chris Christie because I'm just praying he starts screaming at his own audience and they start booing him. Exactly. And they start throwing orange peels and banana peels at him. I mean, that thing in Orlando, I played that clip. I'm sure you did, too. Sure. Oh, my. Have you ever seen a public – And what's the word again? I'm sorry. Your failure to embrace the truth is – Reprehensible. Thank you. I keep going deplorable, but that was Hillary, and we'd see how great that worked out for her. No, no. Reprehensible. Reprehensible. When you're talking to your own people – Yes. And calling them reprehensible – The people you're trying to get to vote for you, ideally. Not a good look. And I think – and interestingly, Hewitt and I last night, we had a great Salem party. And listen, we're very proud of this. I mean, say what you will about the meaninglessness. It's a big deal for us. Of course it is. For Salem to partner with NBC, and Hugh's going to be on that stage. Which means at least one conservative will be asking questions. Exactly. While Kristen Welker asks everybody about January 6th, at least Hugh will be there. And let me give you a scoop. Hugh is exhausted. Last night was the ninth rehearsal they had for this debate. I said nine? How do you rehearse? What do you do? You put staffers up at various lecterns and have ads just to kind of get through the drill? They put a couple hundred people in the audience. They test these guys because he – and he said Lester Holt and Kristen Welker have been just pros. He said Kristen's kind of the new kid on the block, but Lester's a veteran journalist. But they've got to be ready for everything. I mean, Hugh's ready for eruptions from the audience and how do you handle that and how do you interact. Anyway, they've had nine rehearsals for tonight's debate. And also, Hugh gave me a scoop. He said, watch DeSantis' performance. He has just hired fairly recently one of the best debate preparers in the business. I don't – I forgot the guy's name. I'll try to get it. I think it's Brad. I could not care less. Well, I know. But it's – Binders don't matter. Prep doesn't matter. DeSantis is DeSantis and he's wonderful. He's not Trump. DeSantis' worst problem is that Trump exists. I'll never forget the caller or the person who tweeted or something said that the only problem with DeSantis is he was not the best president of my lifetime. And Trump was. Trump exists. There's nothing the matter with DeSantis. There's nothing wrong with Nikki Haley except she's the queen of forever war. You heard Nikki Haley the other day saying the people who will abandon Ukraine are the people who will give up on Israel. Shut up, man. That's not smart. That's not a smart thing. But I can't wait. I know it may not matter at all. It's half the interest if Trump were there. Trump will be there down the road in Hialeah, you said, right? Heavily Cuban -American population there. That's going to be fun. And he's loved in Hialeah. Well, we'll be in the Spin Room tonight beginning about 6 p .m. Central Time. We'll have pre -debate coverage. Let's watch you. Let's watch you. Tell everybody how to watch you. Well, listen to us on the radio. I'm pretty sure we'll be on AM 660 The Answer tonight. As the radio partners, we're going to be here at 6 p .m. prior to the debate. The debate will be aired live and then I'll be in the Spin Room post -debate, hopefully talking to all the candidates or many of them in the Spin Room here. And you could also watch us on Salem News Channel pre - and post -debate. So it's going to be a big night, you know? And we're ready to go. And then I'll be back tomorrow here in Miami with you to wrap everything up. Is that room? Because it's funny, we've all done conventions, like convention coverage and the entire week of doing broadcasting from a convention. And the morning after the convention is like done, you and I still have shows to do. But all you can hear is the pipes and the drapes and just the clang, clang. I will not be here. As the trucks are off. But what in the world is that room, that beautiful room you're in? I won't know. It's beautiful now. It'll be rock and roll and post -debate. What's that thing? Are you just going to be run over by workers and forklifts tomorrow? I won't know because I'm not going to be here. I'll be at Salem, Miami. I'm going to be a few miles away at a nice comfy radio studio. There you go. We'll be at the Salem Radio Miami studio. Excellent. That's a very smart decision. I'll see you tomorrow, my friend. Here we go. We're ready for you. It's a big day and night of Mike. Can't wait for his show. The next up, the first thing you need to consume is Mike's own radio program. And that's at 10.

A highlight from Spider-Man: The Short Halloween
"See! I told you! Now capture him! Which one? I don't care which one! Get him both! That man's an imposter! That man is the imposter! There can't be two Spider -Men. Let's take them both in! Hold on a second. We'll have a showdown to prove which of us is the real Spider -Man. I am from beyond. Listen and all you desire will be yours. Welcome to Spider -Man and the Secret Wars. Prepare for battle! to INTRO Welcome Brattleworld. I am your host, the ever -amazing, ever -spectacular Spider -Dan. And in this podcast I spotlight entertainment's best -kept secrets that a mainstream audience may find boring. And welcome to Shockphobia Fest, a month -long celebration of All Hallows' Eve's most frightening films and comic spooks. And welcome to Shockphobia Fest 2023. We've made it. We've made it this far. I believe this is the fourth one thus far that we've done. So it's been a journey and a half. But we've got a huge, amazing lineup for you. If you are a patron, you've already had part two of Shockphobia Fest already way at the beginning. Or end of September, whatever date it came out. I can't remember. Remember? Remember? Remember? But yes, it's going to be a great month. We're going to have this one. Then we're going to follow it up with Trick or Treat from 1986 with John Hammond. We are then going to have our top five witch movies with Lucy Jane Devane and Scott Hodgson. And then we're going to end it out with Deadly Friend with Tonya Todd. What a wonderful lineup of guests and topics and Halloween -themed goodies. Will there be tricks? Will there be treats? We will decide on that as we get to them. But today we're going to look at a comic book. Big surprise. And guess what? It's Spider -Man again. Yes, I know. It is my go to. I mean, I've probably done more Batman on this show by this point, which is fair, to be honest. But yes, it is a Spider -Man comic. And again, it is a kind of a piss take of a Batman comic, which we did cover in a previous Shockphobia Fest with Dan Kietis. I will leave that link in the show notes. You know where it is. It's going to be there if I remember to put it there. But yes, we are looking at Spider -Man The Short Halloween, which is a is a short comic. So it's about thirty nine pages. I decided to pick up the collection, the short Halloween collection that is available on ComiXology if you want it. And it comes with not only the the story itself, the short Halloween, but also has various issues of Spider -Man family around this time around the same kind of era. And there's a few cool little stories like when Harry comes back from the dead. How does Peter navigate that? There's one where he has he goes and tries to get a job as a CSI photographer with his friend, Carly, and soon to be girlfriend at the time. And there's a few other kind of stories as well about, you know, there's some ant Spider -Man stories. So that's that's an alternate universe where Aunt May became spider powered. And there's also I think there's a couple of Peter Porker stories in there as well. And all sorts of kind of wonderful, bizarre, good, nice short stories as well. So it's a nice compilation, about 150 pages in total, but a nice compilation of stuff that's kind of coming out. And it's all on the humorous side to a degree. There's a humorous slant to most of those stories, which is quite interesting because so is this one. Not only is it a humorous Spider -Man tale, it is also written by two incredible comedic talents, Bill Hader and Seth Meyers. Bill Hader you will know from Saturday Night Live and Pineapple Express and Superbad and various other comedy films. I think he's in a show called Barry. You'll know him. You'll have seen him in something. Or you'll have heard his voice or he wrote South Park for a while, voiced some characters on there. He's done amazing things since he wrote this comic. So yes, and Seth Meyers now has his own talk show, was a writer and a performer on SNL and has done various other things with different TV shows, but he's now hosting his own late night show. So they've done very, very well for themselves. But deep, deep down, deep, deep, deep, deep, deep down, they are massive fucking nerds. And of course, Marvel came to them being New York based, being comedians, being comic book fans. They went, hey, fancy writing a Spider -Man comic? And they jumped to the chance. Bill Hader is a big fan of writing with other people because he gets that gratification immediately as opposed to waiting for the audience's reaction. That's his kind of that's his preference. And we so have a story that is set on Halloween night and Spidey does not like Halloween night because it's just known for being raucous and there's a lot of confusion, bizarreness goes on, lots of people in costume getting in the way and confusing things, which leads directly into the plot. So before I get started on that, again, the short Halloween is written by Bill Hader and Seth Meyers, the artist by Kevin Maguire. If you are familiar with the comedic version of the Justice League, that's the Justice League International or the bwahahaha years of the Justice League, they weren't all bwahahaha moments, but they did they did lean into the comedy a bit more than maybe some of the stuffier JLA stuff of earlier years. But there was still, you know, a fair bit of seriousness and also a fair bit of, you know, super heroics came first, the comedy came second. And it's kind of not unlike this story. And Kevin Maguire was one of the artists on that run with James DeMatteas and all the other, Keith Giffen, Keith Giffen, the name was escaping me then. But yeah, I've not read that run. I've read partially some bits and some crossover stuff. I've heard very good things. I do have a volume of it and I will get round to it eventually. But not today, sir. Not today, but we're talking about Spider -Man and we're talking about Halloween's. So it's Halloween night. As I said, Spidey is chasing down a jewel thief called Fumes. He is a supervillain who, of course, straight in with a comedy. He has made an armored suit and lots of gadgets and stuff to be a supervillain through his dad being a vacuum repairman. So he's learned the tools of the trade and he's flying around and throwing off all these fumes. Spider -Man is trying to chase him down and get those jewels back.
A highlight from Exploring Art, Laughter and Resilience with Illustrator, Jason Seiler!
"Y en ese hombre, hold another bottle. Look a little closer, cigar and Moscato. An actor in improv coming from Chicago. Auto, make way for Paul Vato. Bravo, and welcome everybody to another episode of Palo Alto Presents. And today my very special guest is Jason Seiler, who, judging by your Instagram, instagram .com slash Seiler pants, you make pants. Oh yeah, yeah, I got mostly made in Wisconsin, yeah. Wisconsin, Wisconsin, China, Jaina, Jaina. No, it's Seiler Paints, Paints. Seiler Paints, I think I got the wrong guy. I need a pair of pants and I thought you could hook me up with a pair of pants, nevermind. Folks, I'm just kidding, of course. I'm not the pants guy. I'm not a pants guy either, now in the time of Zoom calls and COVID and whatnot. No need to wear pants. No. My guest is Jason Seiler, who paints. He's an illustrator, he's an artist. He does caricatures. He's done the cover of Time Magazine various times with people like the Pope. And who was your other cover that you did? I've done Trump and Pelosi and a bunch of other political people, Biden and Kamala, person of the year. I think I've done about 10 covers for Time. That is amazing, congratulations. So I thought I'd spend a few minutes talking to Jason about his art, talking to him about his standup comedy. And we have a connection in the world of standup comedy as well as the Chicago connection. So folks, please give Jason a very warm round of applause. And thank you, Jason, so much for being here. Thank you, thank you. Oh, nothing better than claps and laughter. That must be so different, the fact that you're getting claps and laughter on stage. Sure, that's almost not in fact, but that when you're painting or drawing it's such a solitude thing, that you go from one world to the other where you're very solitary and concentrating. Not that you don't in standup, but you're not getting that immediate reaction until afterwards while standup, you're getting it right away. You're getting the applause, you're getting the laughs and all that. And the groans. Well, a reaction is a reaction. I love it. Have you got any groans for your artwork? Oh yeah, yeah, I was just about to say, I do get reactions pretty quickly when I share work. It's kind of funny, because I have done a lot of political type work, but I can't stand politicians. The left or the right, they're all lunatics as far as I'm concerned. So I have no problem illustrating for anybody, because I don't have a horse in the race really. I don't worship politicians, let's put it that way. Every once in a while I'll paint a certain politician and I'm trying to take care of my family. It's my job, I'm painting to somebody and I will get the nastiest messages from people just angry so that I, how dare you even work for that publication or draw that person or whatever it is. I've gotten pretty serious. One time I painted the president of Iran, this was years ago and I got some serious, nasty messages from people trying to curse my family and writing me crazy things. I actually even got a care package in the mail from Iran. This was like 15 years ago and it freaked me out so much because it was just after I got all these threats. So I gave it to the police and to the FBI in Chicago. I just told my story and they took it and they came and got it, I don't even know what was in it. And then maybe, I don't know, like a month later, I got a call and they told me it was mixed nuts. It was a bag of mixed nuts. I thinking was that there was maybe gonna be like, man, those are some delicious Persian cookies. Yeah. But sorry, you didn't want, but same thing, mixed nuts. But then I found out from someone from Iran that that's actually like a gift of love or whatever, like that's a common thing to be, so it was probably a fan, but it still weird me out. I was like, okay, I don't know. People are saying death to you and your family, here's some nuts, enjoy. Maybe they thought you had a peanut allergy, so maybe it wasn't. He's American, send him some gluten, that'll kill him. Send him some gluten and a shoe. We couldn't throw it at you, but here it is. No, until somebody's paying your mortgage and your rent or your bills, they can't exactly tell you how to do it, but that's the thing, you're not a hypocrite. You're only going like, oh, I'm only drawing Republicans or I'm only drawing Democrats. You're going across the board and all showcasing your beautiful talents and artwork, so you can't let that, of course, stop you, and it hasn't, so that's wonderful. It is a little bit tricky because there's some artists that I know that only will work for the left, and then they criticize me if I do anything for a right -wing publication. But the thing is that I don't illustrate something if I don't, if it's over the line in any way that I don't, otherwise, mostly it's just like, whatever. There's a story about this person and I'm just doing a painting of them. Chill out. I'm recording history, okay? This is something that is happening right now, and whether you like it or not, that person exists, and recording I'm history with my painting. That's basically, and I'm also taking care of my family and doing what I love, so chill out. Yeah, agreed, and that is 100%. You're not doing the political commentary. No. You're just doing a painting for whatever article that is, be it right, left, so no, I don't think that you should ever, of course, need to explain yourself. I know that we're just dialoguing, but no, you can't listen to what other people say. And then, I'm friends with a pretty well -known cartoonist and he's very left -wing. His name's Lalo Alcaraz. He's an award -winning cartoonist, and I co -hosted the show Pocha Hour of Power with him on KPFK in LA, as you know, that's very left -wing radio. And he, you know, he'll go at both sides, but he really, of course, goes after the right, and especially Trump and whatnot, but I think he would appreciate your work because we also know people on both sides of the aisle, and yeah, that's just incredible. You're taking shit from all sides. And even in comedy, too, like I don't really get into politics too much in comedy because it just divides the room right away, but I like to make fun of myself or kind of make fun of both sides at the same time, you know what I mean? Like making fun of Trump and Biden together, you know what I mean? Like that's more fun to me, like if it's a fun joke, but yeah, it's different with the illustration because it's, you know, a client will call me and tell me like someone they want me to paint. They'll tell me the story. If it's a caricature -type editorial illustration where they're like wanting me to draw a situation, if it was something that I didn't agree with, I just wouldn't do it, and I've done that before. I'm like, eh, I don't really want to do that. And that's fine. They'll find someone else. But mostly it's just in the last three years or so with the heightened wokeness thing that's been going on where people are seeing them being a little bit more sensitive about things, that caricature, which is what I've been doing since I was like nine, 10 years old, has not been used as much in editorial work. And I've actually been called out a few times now for doing caricature that I'm a bully, that it's mean, and that they're like, how could you do that to people? And it's just like, it's ridiculous. And it's funny because it really, the caricature illustration and comedy, it's always been like very similar to me. The difference is when I do comedy, people go to the show to see comedy. So I actually feel like I have way more freedom to express myself. And it's like, hey, shut the fuck up. You decided to come to a comedy show. So get over it. But like with the art, it's like you're kind of just putting it out there and then anybody feels like they can say and they know what they want. And now everyone has access to tell you what they think. So it's a - Of course, of course. Yeah, everyone's got a platform. Now you're saying that you're being called a bully or you might be because you're exaggerating features of people's faces? Because I think that's what caricature is, correct? I mean - Oh yeah. There's been people that take it in that way, that like, I've been called a bully basically, which is kind of crazy. Cause it's like, they look at what I'm doing as super mean or that's like insensitive or racist or whatever, just as like, because of how I draw somebody and it's like, no, that's what they look like. It looks more like them than a photo sometimes. A good caricature. It really can capture someone's essence. But I've definitely noticed in the last few years, this shift in this, like people are like walking on eggshells about everything. So - Yeah. We especially notice it in comedy or satire and whatnot, you know, but I hear you. So keep fighting the good fight. Now you mentioned you take commissions. Now, if I wanted you to draw either myself or something for a book, that's a project that you would possibly take on, you would consider? Oh yeah. Yeah. I'm a freelance artist. So if you have monies, I provide the honeys. You know? Yeah. Yeah. Because I was going to offer, you know, I'd love for you to draw me. It'll bring you great exposure. I feel like a lot of people make that offer. Like, oh please, you know, do work for me. And you'll get a good exposure. So sorry, but I can't tell that to my mortgage company or my landlord. Do you charge different rates, say for individuals versus like corporations, like to draw the cover of Time Magazine, do you have a set rate? Is it the same as other artists? And you know, if this is proprietary knowledge, then by all means, you don't have to share it. But I think people would be very interested to know what can an artist make? Obviously you've dedicated what, 20 plus years to your craft? Well, yeah, I mean, it's different how it works. Because basically from magazine to magazine, the way it works usually is they have like a set amount for cover or for spot illustrations, inside the illustrations. And they offer you the job, you either take it or you don't. You know, so that's usually how that works. And a magazine cover can be anywhere from, you know, 1 ,800 to 2 ,800 to 3 ,500. It depends on who it is. And then it varies for different other projects. Like I recently did background paintings for an upcoming Disney movie. And that was different. That was more of, I got paid every two weeks. And so I had a set amount where I was paid. And so it's never the same. Like sometimes I do, sometimes for clients or for private commissions, I'll do a day rate, you know, which is usually I'll charge like 1 ,000 to 1 ,200 for a day rate. And so it just depends on what the project is and also, especially if it's a private commission, I usually, I ask for like half upfront for something like that. And then because I'm also taking on, you know, editorial work while I'm doing that, you know, so it really just depends. That's, it's not, there's not like a set thing. Yeah, I mean, and it's different also for, because when I do my editorial work, I work digitally, but when I do private commissions, well, I also work digitally for that as well, but sometimes I'll do oil paintings, gouache or things like that. Those will cost a lot more because they're traditional and they're huge and they take a long time. So that's, you know, again, it's all over the place. So it depends on what it is. Like if it's an album cover, let's say I've done a few album covers before, that can be a lot more than like a book cover or, but in the industry itself, there's not like a set thing, you know. Wonderful, well, thank you for sharing because I think that we get a lot of listeners that are getting into the arts or enjoy the arts or artists themselves. And I think that's one of the important things is, you know, monetization and can I make a living at this? So thank you for being free with your information and sharing, so much appreciated. And then how did you get into standup comedy? It's kind of crazy, but we kind of have a connection. You mentioned Steve Byrne before, but basically, so I've always wanted to do comedy. Ever since I was a little kid, I know he's not so popular right now, but Bill Cosby was my favorite comedian. When I was a kid, I would watch it over and over and over again. And as I got older, I just, you know, every comedian show I could see, I would watch. Saturday Night Live, anything comedy. And then of course I was really into Mad Magazine and that kind of stuff. So it's always been a huge part of my life. And I've always, I wasn't really like a class clown. I was definitely a weird, quirky artist guy that loved to make people laugh. And I would be silly with my friends and I always wanted to get people to laugh. Like it was, I would, you know, whether I was like walking, I used to sometimes for just for fun, I would walk around my high school like Charlie Chaplin. And I would just do the Chaplin walk for hours. Like I was just weird, I don't know. Like I've always just loved comedy. And then as I got older, I moved to Chicago when I was 18 and I joined, I was in a bunch of punk bands and metal, like hardcore bands really. And so I spent years touring and putting out albums with bands. And then eventually I quit and focused like on my art full time.
A highlight from 95 - Greyscale's Legal Slam, Musk's Crypto Tease & BitBoy's Dramatic Exit: Crypto's Tumultuous Week
"Welcome to the Crypto Curious podcast, proudly brought to you by the Bamboo app. Crypto Curious is your go -to source for all things cryptocurrency, 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 the world of crypto, we recommend starting in our early episodes where we 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 talk about the SEC's loss in court to grayscale and the Spot ETF deadline news. Twitter or X as it's now known's application for a digital currency license, as well as his own brand for some less than honest behavior, plus so much in the short, sharp news bites. So please stay around to the end. My name's Tracy and I'm joined by Blake and Craig for this week's crypto catch up. Hey guys, how are you going? Very well, Trace. How are you? Very well. How are you going, Craig? Good, thanks. My favorite topic today, regulation, but we'll get into it. It's always some regulation talk, but I mean, you know what? It's getting interesting because it's about ETFs and exciting things that mean crypto pumps down the way. So should we crack in? Not financial advice. Not financial advice, never financial advice. Let's do it because this news broke basically after we finished recording last week. The biggest news of the past seven days was another crushing defeat to Gary Gensler and the SEC, this time against grayscale investment funds. The US federal court ruled that the SEC acted unfairly in denying grayscale's request to turn its grayscale Bitcoin trust product into an ETF. So the long awaited decision provided a pump to the prices across the board in the crypto market and even the crypto related public equities like Coinbase got a bit of a pump. So everyone was pretty excited, weren't they, Blake? That's right. So just for a little bit of context, grayscale Investment Trust, I think holds currently three to five percent of all the Bitcoins. And it's basically like an investment fund that they're looking to get listed on the Nasdaq to be freely traded and it's going to attract a lot of capital to the space. And, you know, this was favourable because, you know, previously the SEC had just denied the application and now the court has ruled that they've unfairly made that denial. So this is very, very positive for the sector. Not only does this help grayscale's case, but likely to help other applications for the Bitcoin ETFs. And as we know, there's about seven others that are currently or maybe even more that are going through the process of trying to get approved for a spot Bitcoin ETF. So not really exciting stuff, but I must say the SEC will fight tooth and nail to continue to kick this down the road with every lever that they have available to them. And that looks like what they've done here. They've kicked the can down the road another 30 days before they have to make a decision. I have no doubt they'll be doing it again. But since that news, the SEC has come out and said they're delaying all applicants of the Bitcoin ETF until October. So a few weeks ago, we reported on ARK Invest, they were the only one that copped the delay, but turns out all of them will now cop the delay. So this rained on the parade somewhat, and the short -lived pump was, what, two or three days worth, and then it just came back down to where it was before. So of a pump and dump chase. Yeah, so just going back to grayscale and what that means, their petition, they've been granted a petition for review. And what this means is the SEC now needs to review the application again and either accept the application or pick a different reason to deny the application, which will drag this out even longer, appeal the court's decision and try and get a end back review, which is apparently a fancy legal term. So that's the three options there. But, you know, either way, like Blake said, big win for the industry. And I think this just proves the fact that the SEC isn't the be all and end all. You know, you can fight this. Yeah, and it's really great to see that the court system has a level of independence here that hasn't politicised other government factions. And the market is still so sensitive on this news, like this came out, bam, five percent pump, then the other thing came out, five percent decline. So the market just seems like we're waiting on what direction to take and any of these catalysts are providing, you know, huge movements. And like we said, now it's just been the can has been kicked down the road a little further, another 30 days into mid -October until we'll have any more information and we will keep a keen eye on that, folks. Moving on, Elon Musk's ex, formerly known as Twitter, moves closer to crypto payments with a new state licence being granted. Regulators from Rhode Island have approved X's application for a currency transmitter licence over the last week, Craig. Yeah, so Elon's spoken about making X a WeChat sort of application, which of course involves payments. But here's what you need to know about this scenario. So the licence required for companies conducting financial activities on behalf of users sending and receiving money, the licence lets companies store, transact and exchange digital assets and the licence also includes service providers like crypto wallets, payment processes and exchanges. So he's taking small steps to integrating crypto in the platform. And as we know, I don't want to be a sceptic or a conspiracy theorist, but he is bullish on Doge and he has spoken about or joked about integrating Doge. So it could be that obvious trace. What are your thoughts, Blaine? Yeah, that's right. Initially, I think it's just going to be regular payments, but over time, I think it makes sense for them to also integrate cryptocurrency payments as well. We know Elon is fond of crypto, so it just makes sense. And I think this is a big win. But, you know, there is there's lots of competition out there. There's CashApp, VMO, there's VMO, PayPal. Yeah, that all provide cryptocurrency trading and investing and buying and transferring. But I suppose what's different about X's proposition is that it's also a social media platform. And this is, you know, I think maybe Meta or previously Facebook maybe approached it a little bit wrong. With Libra. Yeah, with Libra. And it sounds like Elon will execute. You know, he's the founder of PayPal. He understands internet banking and payments. And I think he'll execute like he executes on everything else. Yeah. So this is important and necessary in the steps forward that Elon is pushing for X to become the everything app, which he's he's pushing for. And we'd expect crypto and fiat payments to become part of that. And you've mentioned obviously a minute ago, Craig Doge, he's you know, he loves. So I think everyone's talk recently has been when he does this, what will be the tokens in there? Because everyone said X and now there's XRP and Doge. And he's even hinted at Shiba at some point. So there's the guess now. What will be the crypto token that he will use? Let us know, folks. Send us an email. Well, Trace, what do you think? Do you think you might allocate some cash to Doge after this news? You know what? Not financial advice, folks. But I do potentially think Doge and we do have a little side bet going with our with our friends at Equity Mates with Bryce and Alec. And we did say at the start of the year that we did tongue in cheek think Doge might be one of the best performing assets of the year. There's a bit of a joke. Look, I don't know that he'll be making any head roads into this by the end of the year. Like Blake said, I think it's going to be fiat first and we won't see any cryptocurrency trading or being used on the X app for quite some time. But my money would be on Doge. But he's got the license. So it is going to happen eventually. You know, as we know, the favorite bull market indicator for me is when Doge has a pump. That's when you know that we're back. So, yeah, let's keep an eye on it. But then again, Trace, Doge didn't move at all after this news. Which I thought was very surprising. It hasn't on a lot of his comments recently. Gone are the days of Saturday Night Live where he's on there and we have like a 20 percent pump. It's just not like that anymore. Good times. Good times. Let's move on boys. It feels like there's been a long list of shady crypto characters getting their comeuppance this past year. Doquan, SBF and a few other dudes. But there's one who's facing his consequences over this past week. Ben Armstrong, also known as BitBoy, has been ousted from his own brand. Ben was removed from BitBoy Crypto by parent company BJ Investment Holdings due to alleged substance abuse and harm to employees and the community. Craig, what else do we know? Yeah, so BitBoy Crypto, he's been in hot water for a long time. He actually had his media kit leaked, which actually was giving projects prices on what sort of promotion that he would give them. But what we can gather from information that's been filtered out by the staff and insiders is they've kicked him out for various reasons, harm to employees. But he's also done extensive promotion of unvetted tokens. He had a lack of transparency regarding his personal holdings. And he promoted coins and tokens in his video only to sell them after his viewers started buying without disclosing his intentions. So typical grifter. And you know, it's good that these guys are getting weeded out. And look, we were talking about this. He was obviously, for those who might have remembered him off, chasing down Sam Bankman -Fried as the big baddie member. He went over there. Yeah, he was the hero. And even the hero is a scammer. And you might recall, folks, we talked about Ben .eth token a little while ago, which popped up and he shilled that one to his users. And that was a bit of a nail in the coffin, too, because that didn't go too well. But the proof is in the pudding here. We look at his views and they were up around 250 ,000 a year ago. They went down to 120 ,000. And you know, the last six months, he's only getting 20 ,000 views. He lost his audience. They just lost trust in him because of these pump and dumps. So, you know, it's good to kind of shake out this kind of behavior from the market. And I just wanted to put it to you both that I feel that, unfortunately, we'll see a fresh bunch of this coming through. A hundred percent. Because we're going to get, you know, an influx of new retail people coming through that don't know what to look out for. And there'll be another BitBoy Ben coming up and doing the same thing. Yeah, that's definitely one of the challenges. We've been in the space for a little while and we see these characters come in and out of the sector and it's quite obvious, you know, they all display similar traits about their behavior and how they project in the marketplace. And, you know, they gather big followings and it's very hard to convey to people that follow them that, you know, they might not have the best intentions or, you know, they might be doing something against, you know, what they say that they're doing. So, yeah, I think you're right. Trace, more and more will come through, more will gain popularity with new narratives and then churn out, hopefully sooner rather than later. It's a bit of a double -edged sword because, you know, back in the bull market, BitBoy would be shilling these projects that would go to do ridiculous percentage numbers because people are following the trade. And then obviously they're the ones that pump the hardest, but also the ones that dump the hardest. But BitBoy is obviously laughing because he's selling into his audience. As you mentioned, Trace, there's decrease in views like probably to do with the market cycle as well. Like the big guys, like even locally, like the Pacino Brothers, you know, they produce some amazing content over the last bear market and now the next bull market, they've obviously become popular. So there'll be a bunch of new people now that are making content right now that will become very popular. And in saying that, though, there's great content. You can tell which ones are good and which ones not. Like I just mentioned the Pacino Boys. They're very technical. They talk about Bitcoin and ETH, but someone like BitBoy, which is shilling Ben token, like big red flags. And, you know, I'm really a big fan of Guy from the Coin Bureau. He doesn't shill anything. He just gives you good information, you know. And Ben Cowan, he just talks about the big two. He's very technical as well. And that's it. And we're all about the big two as well. Bitcoin and Ethereum. We talk about all these other coins on here, but really for noobs getting in, even for not noobs, like 75 percent of my portfolio is Bitcoin, Ethereum. OK, with that, let's go to a break. When we come back, a short, sharp news bites.
How Democrats Are Using Trump As a Piñata
"I'm talking to John Zemirak for the whole hour. John, you just said that you thought I don't know if you were kidding or not. I'm not sure that I'm I'm never sure whether I'm kidding or not anymore because I say things that are satires. And three weeks later, the Democrats read my satire and put it in as policy. I joked about Covid Covid patient nursing home story hour in nursing homes. And three weeks later, Andrew Cuomo did it. So I hesitate to offer satires because the Democrats seem to be following me for policy ideas. But what I was saying was I can imagine Trump being elected and the Democrats still not letting him out of jail. And people like Bill Barr standing up and saying, well, the rule of law requires that the president remain in jail. And I've got to go play some golf with Mike Pence now. Well, listen, I'll say it again, I think that. Every day, more Americans are waking up because the way they're treating Trump, you just say, you know, if you didn't believe it was political every day that passes, it looks more and more political. And so I think that there is that on some level, this is good news that their desperation is forcing them to look like what they are, which is monsters for a long time. I thought Donald Trump was kind of like Joe Pesci guest hosting Saturday Night Live. But if you treat someone like Alexander Solzhenitsyn long enough, he starts to sort of grow into those shoes. They are making Trump the scapegoat, the whipping boy for everything and everyone that they hate in America. And while Trump is imperfect and kind of selfish, and I think there are a lot of things he should have done differently. He is kind of the he is the pinata and we are what's inside the pinata and you smack Trump and we fall out on the ground all scattered. So they're going to keep smacking the pinata because they want to kill us.
SNL Alum Victoria Jackson Speaks Out at Tennessee City Council Meeting
"Talking to Victoria Jackson who performed with Saturday Night Live for many years was on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson 20 times and today lives in the Nashville area and recently spoke out at a town council. So Victoria, you decided to say something that most people don't say anymore. They don't get into it. But the idea that God denounces homosexuality as aberrant behavior as a moral behavior doesn't denounce people, loves everybody, but it's interesting that you were willing to say that at this town council, because typically people avoid that issue, which used to be kind of a basic Christian value. And again, this is not about condemning people. We're supposed to have compassion on everybody because we all struggle with something, but you did you did say that at this town council and your short 62nd presentation. Yes, I'm tired of them making us bow down to what they believe and it's like, why are we so afraid and it's done about me? It's about God. What is God think? Who cares what my opinion is. But anyway, so I thought, okay, God hates it. He saw them in gamora. Which is still there. And it's a sulfur. Someone told me that brimstone sulfur, right? You need to read my book. Victory. I hate to tell my Friends to read my book. But if you don't have time to read it, just buy a copy, all right? Just at least by a couple. I do have a couch. So anyway, but yeah, but the point is that when we think of judgment, biblical judgment, sad, I'm going to get more is about as basic as it gets. That's
Joe Piscopo Describes His Amazing Journey to SNL
"Improv. I heard that the original cast was leaving Saturday Night Live. That's Gilda Radner. That's Chevy Chase. That's John Belushi. That's Billy Murray. My hero, Danny aykroyd. And they were looking for cast to replace the original Saturday live. And I wanted nothing to do about it. NBC did a go round of all the comedy clubs. They never picked anybody. I got a call from a friend who was writing on SNL on the new SNL. He got a writing job. He told gene dominion produced at the time. You got to see Joe Piscopo. He does impressions. I would do impressions. I was doing the Frank Sinatra president on stage. I would do Tom Snyder. Remember Tom Snyder said that day was great. And I would do all of that on the stick. So they brought me to NBC. I went up to the 17th floor. I did an in studio kind of audition for gene domain and she said, okay, you know what? We're going to put you on tape. We're going to put you on tape. Come in this date. So I bypassed a lot of auditions, but I went in, I got down to the last few hundred, and I went into what it was David Letterman studio in the 6 a, I believe it was at NBC. And I just riffed on camera. Now, I was so cocky back then. I was young number one, number two. Who wants to replace the original cast of Saturday Night Live? But I did the old man, this is Sinatra. I did all the impressions. They left. They liked it. They hired me as a utility guy. They needed somebody to do the impressions right there. They hired me. And so we went in. And if I could cut to, we did about ten shows on SNL. Gilbert Gottfried was in the cast. There was some great chemical. Billy, the gili, I came up with Gilead to comedy club. Then as we were casting the show about to mount the show on the air, I walked up to the 17th floor one day and someone said, I want you to meet a kid from Long Island comedy clubs. I was in New York City comedy clubs. We didn't know the Long Island comedy clubs at the time. I walked in and as a young kid sitting down and they said, Joe, I want you to meet Eddie Murphy. And I sat with this young kid who was 19 years old, 19 years old. And I immediately talked about connection, you were gracious enough to make the introduction. And the connect with Eddie, the laughing, we just joked around, what are we doing here? We just hit it off.
Bidens hosts 'Ted Lasso' cast to promote mental health
"The Ted Lasso cast as visited The White House for a talk with President Biden about mental health. Coach lasso? The podium is yours. I appreciate it. There you go. Thank you. Jason Sudeikis was in the briefing room next to castmates, including Brett Goldstein, who plays Roy Kent. They're promoting mental health as a part of overall health and the importance of seeking help despite the stigma. Doesn't need to be that way. And simply offering support to those around you. It's a big theme of the show is like to check in. Sudeikis did have some fun. Yes, sir, you're familiar face. Hi. Taking one question from a packed room. Fake journalists. Castmate James Lance was standing among the real ones. Sudeikis answered one more question on his way out. Would he do his Saturday Night Live, Joe Biden impression? They got the real one here now. Sagar Meghani at The White House.
GOP leader 'pausing' social media after liking naughty LGBTQ posts
"Tennessee's lieutenant governor Randy mcnally is taking a break from social media. Last week, 79 year old Republican Randy mcnally said he had no intention of stopping after revelations that he repeatedly commented on racy post by a 20 year old gay model and other LGBTQ personalities. The lieutenant governor of Tennessee has been accused of hypocrisy and was lampooned on Saturday Night Live this week for among other things, saying his intent was engagement and encouragement when he commented with hearts and fire emojis on a photo of the young man's backside. Mcnally has issued an apology, saying he did not mean to embarrass anyone, and says he's pausing all social media activity to reflect and receive more guidance. Mcnally denies having a record that his anti gay that says he supports traditional marriage and has supported legislation restricting drag shows. Meanwhile, the Tennessee Senate has passed a bill that would base people's legal gender identities on their anatomy at birth and prevent transgender people from changing their driver's licenses and birth certificates to match their chosen gender identity.

"saturday night live" Discussed on The Bancroft Brothers Animation Podcast
"Had one day to do it, and I chose animation. It's interesting because stop motion so many live action directors. And I am primarily live action director, even though I know something about animation now. But so many live action directors, their first movies, whether it was when they were a kid or when they were like me, made this short that it's all, it's always stop motion because it's the lowest bar of entry, technically not technically, but financially, to make something that, you know, feels that has a little bit of worldbuilding and feels like you get your creative satisfaction. And so yeah, there's so many, very much more successful than me, directors I've talked to, like, yes, stop motion, like the first ten shorts I made Ross thought, though. When you had a great thing, there you already had this cute, adorable voice, right? That Jenny did. Was that so was that hotel room experience that you were saying? Was that really the first time she'd ever done the voice or the first time you heard it? That was the first time she'd ever done it, which I could say that it was, she was surprised by it too, because she had just gotten done on Saturday Night Live where you're sort of staying up all hours of the night working 24/7, just trying to ring every drop of comedic potential voices, characters, get out of yourself. And that's how you find the gold. And she felt completely spent and was like, I've already everything in my arsenal has been pitched as a sketch. And so she was shocked when she found a new year. But at least she found something that she could own, then it's not Saturday night live.
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.
Comedian and 'SVU' actor Richard Belzer has died at 78, friend Laraine Newman announces
"Actor and comedian Richard belzer has died at his home in southern France, according to The Hollywood Reporter, belzer was 78. And marches are a letter with a look at his life. Homicide. Richard belzer played detective John munch on homicide and 9 other series for more than two decades. He never auditioned. Executive producer Barry Levinson heard him on the radio and asked him to read for the part. Belzer was a stand up comedian and was the opening act in the early days of Saturday Night Live, even before that, he was a newspaper reporter, and he told reporters in 1997, that's why his stand up reflected the news. I just always been obsessed with current events. And I always felt that if
Victoria Jackson Has an Interesting Relationship With The Tennessean
"Ladies and gentlemen, I continue my conversation with Victoria Jackson of Victoria. There are some people who don't know this, so I want to, I want to let them know again, you know, you've been in show business for a long time. You are on Saturday Night Live for how many years. How many seasons? 6 seasons on SNL and obviously that's how I came to know about you. I didn't know you back then. You were like a gigantic celebrity. But one day I saw you on the subway with your entourage. And I thought, oh, there's a famous person. And I think I've told you this story, but that was at the height of your fame. And the idea that we're friends now thrills me, you're very outspoken about your faith and your political beliefs, and you're still a ton of fun, which is the best part of it all. So we're just talking right now about something serious. So your husband Paul wrote a piece for the Tennessee and newspaper, which like most newspapers skews ultra liberal, like, you know, just like a millimeter shy of Karl Marx and but you had dinner with the editor of this liberal paper I did because a friend of mine set it up and I tried to tell him he was liberally biased. And he was talking to a wall, but anyway, I have a relationship with them where every time I try to submit something, they turn it down, and I just have fun playing games, seeing how they can keep turning something down. They go, oh, it's three words too long. So then I take three words out. They go, oh, well, it dehumanized. This is what they said about Paul's piece. It dehumanizes members of our society. Post peace was basically saying we have moral madness right now. The fact that a girl can be in the locker room and a naked man is standing there who thinks he's a woman is standing next to a little girl, destroying her. You are calling crazy, crazy, and we're not, we're not allowed to do that anymore.
"saturday night live" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Farrow in London and Tom keen. Is he in London or is he on his way to Manchester? I think he's in Khan, Genghis Khan. No, he's in London. If you paint with fair and ball paint, then you have to say London. That's how it works. Nobody says that. That's a Saturday Night Live. Thank good morning everyone. It's Friday morning live here at Bloomberg with futures negative 11 right now. There's a lot of interesting things going on. Some real nuances of accommodation is seen with a Bloomberg financial conditions index, and Lisa, I'm sorry, this is coming like a train. Brent crude, 88 65. That's a story underneath the story this morning. And you're seeing that in gasoline prices and you're seeing that with this question around how much that's going to fuel the ongoing rally that we've seen in energy stocks with a lot of people saying, we're just seeing the beginning of what happens with China coming back online. Yeah and off the radar today and a lot of thoughtful notes into the weekend about thinking about Japan within a Pacific and a global sphere as well. That's a sorcerer reading this week and what are the ramifications of one 25 one 20 strong Yan the flows, what inflation means for the people of Japan and their behavior is you look out to the Pacific Rim. That's another mystery into this year. As well as what the bank of Japan will do. Did you see the IMF come out and say, we highly recommend we strongly recommend that the bank of Japan normalize. Their interest rate policy and everyone so thank you. Thank you, IMF. I think a lot of people are arguing for the same. Just beginning to think about the spring meetings of the IMF, of course, have some leadership there we hope as well. Let's get some specific names because it hasn't been. Let's dive into it. Let's dive in. We haven't really gone deep into Intel, but I keep looking at 10% drop pre market. And it's not necessarily dragging down everything with it. You are seeing a bit of a sell off in micron and Qualcomm and the other chip makers. But Intel is a specific story that has to do with PCs and the lack of demand there. They gave one of their worst ever quarterly forecasts, partly because of the personal computer sales. You say, you think it's right now there are 54% off their 2020 peak, this is about the slowdown the granularity you're talking about. They love to say quarter to quarter Bologna. They're getting their clock cleaned on innovation and on technology with the Intel four tobacco AMD's cleaning their clock. That's my amateur take. You're not. A lot of people would agree with you as well as a number of in-house chip makers and thinking Apple. I'm looking at Hasbro also the toy maker saying that it's going to cut about 15% of its workforce after a disappointing holiday shopping season, perhaps because all kids just use their devices and don't actually play with real toys anymore. But I am wondering whether this is sort of the zeitgeist as to use your word Tom shifting out into a broadening of some of the job cuts that we see. BuzzFeed with a similar tone, those shares popping by about 30% because they said that they were going to replace a lot of their reporters with chat GPT and other artificial intelligence. So this is like Paul Sweeney land. We're going to do it with bramo right now. BuzzFeed's, let's be collegial. They've been, they bought me drinks once at the piano bar in Davos, which was lovely. BuzzFeed has been struggling, right? Yeah. So what are you going to lay off journalists into journalism? You know, they're going to personalize certain posts for people and quizzes and some of the content that they put out using some of the artificial intelligence. The reason why I find this interesting, BuzzFeed is its own story, but there's a broader question of what chachi PT and artificial intelligence can do. Did you see that chat GBT just passed the bar somewhere? I mean, the bar exam. The national, the medical national boards, which I tell people as the equivalent, like the CFA, they passed all three levels. Again, what am I going to be replaced by Chad GPT? And I say this, if it could do a better job, great. But there is this issue of what is this going to do to workforces in a new way that perhaps hasn't been established going forward? Got anything else? That's it. That's what I'm looking at today. That's it. Okay, well, there we go. I keep going, if you want to. Give me one more. Well, I am X. Let's go to AmEx. Because I think AmEx is such a different story than Visa. And Mastercard. Visa and Mastercard The spring time frame was that the treasury will increase its coupon issuance sizes because deficits are continuing to rise. I mean, that, of course, we'll have to wait and see because of the debt ceiling. But broadly speaking, I think there's a decent amount of supply coming into bonds, not just in the U.S. and the corporate bond world, but also in Europe in the first quarter. So there's a lot of bonds that out there to be bought. And that's why we were expecting perhaps a modest modestly higher yields for the market to be able to take down the initial supply. But that's not the case. It's just tremendous amount of demand and people are willing to lop up ten years around three and a half percent. How long will this last this rally this optimism that you see, pervading every asset class? You know, the data for the most part has been mixed, but on the positive side, you look at the data from yesterday that we got for the fourth quarter GDP. There's a decent amount of momentum going into the fourth quarter. And you're looking at an employment picture that's still extraordinarily strong, even though you're getting a lot of news about layoffs in the tech sector. Look at initial jobless claims yesterday. It was very, very low. That tends to be very good, leading indicator of the jobs market. So in this sort of environment, the market is actually, in my view, underpricing the risk of heights for the share we're looking at, perhaps two heights being priced in for the first half of the year. And then a cut being priced in as early as July or September of this year, which that's a trajectory doesn't make any sense in an environment where inflation is expected to remain high in sticky. I mean, look at what happened in Japan. I mean, we saw an outside sprint relative to consensus on inflation. So there's always a possibility that we do get those sort of volatile inflation prints in the market has to respond. And the fed has to respond in like as well. So what's the read through to markets? What kind of disruption will there be if the fed surprises to the upside, perhaps on a 50 basis point rate hike next week, but does indicate that they're going to go further than a lot of
Adam Schiff Complains About Kevin McCarthy, Asks for Money on TikTok
"Here's Adam Schiff, Adam Schiff, there's a lot of buzz about Trump being invited back to Facebook and they're all upset about that too. Well, apparently, Adam Schiff says, hold my beer. I'm going back to TikTok. He has or I'm launching on TikTok. Now, TikTok, that's ironic because they're trying to ban TikTok. The United States wants to ban TikTok because the Chinese are spying on us through TikTok. Colleges, government offices are banning TikTok, but Adam Schiff says, no, no, no, no, no. I'm gonna go to TikTok because that's where I'll complain about Kevin McCarthy. Hello, I'm congressman Adam Schiff with some troubling news. Today, Kevin McCarthy removed me from the House intelligence committee, all for doing my job for holding Trump accountable and standing up to the extreme maga Republicans. We knew it would be bad when the Republicans took over, but it's far worse than we expected. But I can promise you this, this is not the end of my fight for our democracy. This is just the beginning. Please join us and contribute today. Thank you. That contribute. I want to fundraise off being kicked over being kicked off the intelligence committee.

Vaccinated People Now Make up a Majority of COVID Deaths
"So yeah there's a lot we gotta ask Fauci about particularly as a new report came out today and said the majority of people who've died of COVID have been vaccinated which of course is shocking As they also buried another report that vitamin D levels may have a direct correlation with your ability to survive the virus But again Fauci worked directly with the tech companies to silence quote unquote disinformation If you remember anybody who went out of line and said anything even about the lab origins of COVID was probably shut down and silenced There's a lot to answer for My theory of course is that we can now trace the gain of function research funding from Fauci's office and Collins office He's another one that should be hauled in Directly to the Wuhan lab we know that they were experimenting with these viruses These guys admitted in these emails they were working on this fury in cleavage They were working on these weird Frankenstein mice and the cells in the lungs and everything like that They created this thing and they knew that they did and they tried to lie and cover it up by finding a way they could justify this came from nature And because the media in this country the corporate media loved Fauci and don't forget Brad Pitt played the guy in Saturday Night Live He was a hero to people The nation's leading infectious disease doctor you actually have to say that by law whatever you say his name Did you know that Well they love him so much so anything he said they just went with gospel so when he said no no no this was this came from a bat

I got the actual guy, Sean Spicer, Sean Spicer. Welcome to the program. Congratulations on the new book called radical nation, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris's dangerous plan for America. Great to see you. Good to see you. For a second, I actually thought you might have Melissa. I was ready to ask a question. I was going to say, but you're the real thing. Who wants the actress when we can get the guy spicy himself, okay? It's kind of funny because Saturday Night Live rarely does stuff that is to my mind. I mean, if they were making fun of me, maybe I wouldn't see their way. But it struck me as a tremendously affectionate homage. Like there was just something about it that I don't know if you ever talked about that publicly. But there's something about the way she did it that made me whether I knew you or not, like you because of because of what she did. Did you did you feel that or were you just annoyed? So the first one that they did, I thought was like, not only funny, but let's be honest. It was kind of well deserved. I had a tough week. And made a few missteps. And so I thought it was like, okay, that's a little bit of a jab. You gotta laugh at yourself. And so well deserved. The subsequent ones I thought were really starting to get personal. And while they definitely had a hint of humor in them, I thought that they were more like mean spirited than funny. Actually, that's interesting, 'cause I may be missed those. I may be missed those.

Why aren't you answering the phone? The Washington Post reporting this. They buried it deep in a piece about how Joe Biden likes ice cream and cookies. But somewhere in there, they also mentioned that he's constantly trying to get in touch with Hunter to make sure he's doing all right. Chuck heard this and wanted to talk about it. Chucks and triangle. Good morning. Make that good afternoon Chuck. Old habits die hard. Get get afternoon, Vince. Congrats on your new slot.

You know, it could be a nightly story time or But but the challenge there is I'm not sure that senator lives up for it. Tonto Critique the administration. No, they're not. In fact, I don't think I'm wrong. I don't think they've done a Biden impersonation since the inauguration. I think they've avoided that, or they've done it very little, if at all. Jim Carey was doing it for a bit when they were in the campaign mode, But now they've kind of avoided. But you're right. This is perfect fodder for that, Just like like, what's my son doing and like like, it's just a constant disaster like Is just ruining everything. Yes, the challenge that could be posed to the to the writers. There doesn't help. Yes, well, they've got an entire off season now that they just did their season finale this weekend.

And the way that Dan put it out there was like, hey, the possibility that it came out and the president just cut him short immediately and said No, no, no, We're not even talking about possibilities anymore.
