"Yeah you're weird because it's like. That's a similar fate to a lot of artists from that time period like marta and pappu. Put out those albums. I really like represented what they are capable of. But at the same time. I feel like a lot of it has to do with where the music industry was at that time because it was in that weird time where internet was creeping in all of a sudden cds weren't selling but streaming wasn't a thing yeah buying wasn't really a thing we got very weird era. We we all. We all got big padded biggest. The biggest deal of all of us pat was on jive with million dollar records and he got caught up in that time. It was a timeframe as talented as he is. It was like nobody's caring about lyrics right now. Go right mia jingle go right a jingle go we got we got this t pain guy with his voice box. Go good a fucking voice box. Only we need an electronic sound. You know there was a time with t pain could do no wrong saying now. Look now t paying can't give it away. You ever thought about doing a slaughterhouse style group. Yes but i wanted to with young. I wanna do young kids. And i wanna find. You accrue me couple. Young young hungry. The young saigon's who i could teach them the way their dues in. Don't wanna go grab a bunch of exit and make it. It's kind of crazy. Because i see it with gucci where and i don't mean that this is like consistently trying to sign artists and it feels like the artists always want like more independence and like end up moving in ways that he doesn't agree with and i as a fan watching they kind of strikes me as well if you're gucci and you can't get these artists fall in line than i don't know artist. He's gotta be fair with them because if they were smart you notice none of them actually only one. I really probably popped walker at all of them view all off success.

I don't put music as much as it used to. When that's that's the way in just don't sign just treat me fair. Don't don't put them in a bullshit. You know man but if you want i will never grab some guys up and let me take your publication and do this and do that. I like now take on all your shit. You should own your shit. You don't hear about that as much now because these artists smart. They realized that they have so many more opportunities for signed everything away. That's why that's why. I gotta get a guy who's right. Who's fucking nobody with six followers. That's why when you talk to the labels you see them trying to sign artists that have like a couple thousand followers artists that they have their eyes on versus the artists. That i'm interested in interviewing a couple of hundred thousand whatever. It is so different different. They were trying to sign him early on because then they can get him for ten grand. Once the guy got a million follow. He'd like a like we'll follow in the guy on your fucking label like right and it's all about the thing. About followers followers imagination to people could be following you for the wrong reasons. You know what. I'm saying. You think oh i got us. Look at a number and like you. You look at a guy like fucking what's his name is. Jj fish follows But people follow him the clown like like like the town like people. Sometimes they follow you. Just laugh at you.

Is these million fuckers. If only three people go to myrtle go by t shirt no percent. So i was just going to say that it was weird for me because i didn't actually watch entourage until twenty fourteen shit so i was very like far removed from the period of which i was listening to you and you are coming out and seeing all those years later like when you look back at that like how do you remember that experience. Amazing man that was utah feeling like a rockstar. That's what i said like. I've never had like a hit song on the radio but that was so much bigger than a hit song being on the number one show on. Hbo couple years. It was it was like you talking about opportunities and doors opening up and you ll. I used to be in hollywood at a party fucking sigourney. Weaver's drunken the corner. Tara reade like sit where rappers can't get in they got this shit where rappers cannot fucking platinum singer like. Get the fuck out. Who the fuck are you like. They don't like parties around here.

Instead, he endured a different kind of childhood trauma. He was ignored in favor of his half brothers and sisters according to psychiatrist Bruce, Perry, feelings of parental neglect can lead to increased aggression and cruelty. He adds that one of the most disturbing elements of this aggression is that it is often accompanied by a detached cold lack of empathy. Charles started showing signs of this developing aggression over the next three years. He joined a gang of street thugs who attacked and robbed on spending tourists. Unsurprisingly, his criminal activity didn't win his father's affection. In fact, when Noyon Alfons returned to Saigon in nineteen fifty to poach on sent eight-year-old Charles. His mother it's likely that the feeling of being unwanted by both parents haunted Charles for the rest of his life. In Saigon, Charles was still a handful.

"saigon" Discussed on The Propaganda Report
"Definitely check out ground news y'all one of the things that I found useful in their website in their APP is that it shows you how outlets across the political spectrum are on the same story and it enables you to see when media outlets are ignoring certain stories that might oppose the narrative that they're pushing. So check it out so. Excuse me I'm sorry I have serious like congestion issues because my house was full of smoke your in a wildfire in how to what you're in a wildfire and the my friend I love my friend I don I don't make fun of her and she was giving me great advice she's got she doesn't have an oxygen tank she has an air purifier but the replacement filters are four hundred dollars. This thing like I'm not buying this air filter, but it's really unhealthy, and now that I know that we live in complete path accuracy who hates us I, it doesn't surprise me at all I. Mean I I think that masks bad for you too. But anyway, what she did was. She. She. In one of her books in her latest book, she has a somebody who commits crimes a murderer whatever when he goes out to do the crimes, he dresses as a female that's his disguise, which I always thought about assange and Edward Snowden and even the Santa Barbara shooter. I think all those people just for some reason I. Get that vibe from them. And that in itself was considered transphobic plus according to acts of the. History of the TRANSPHOBIC vibe coming off of her. That was the news report on Fox was that the general transphobia. There's news about this plotline. That isn't on its face really transphobic. Just. A reality that if somebody identifies you as a female, you're probably less likely to be a suspect. Yes right? Yeah. And that's what she got in trouble. Couch, that's what she on trump but it's couched in this and other stuff she said that transphobic the general transphobia emily this referred to. Your friend is reporting the news, right? Exactly. What's going on? So I wanted to one more thing there. I have a problem with the SIS gender thing. You're not allowed to label anybody else with gender yet if you're sis gendered, you can be labeled cysts. So assess can't say that somebody else's something but everybody else can say someone is serious. I never agreed to adopt this term cysts wherever it came from. Interesting so. Like you can label. It's Kinda. Like racism. White people can't be racist. That's the thing. Can't. No. Only white people can be race. That right. Maybe only. So maybe only people have lost the right to label others. Kid Ginger anybody else but you can be gendered. Lost the ring. So here's the thing we've had a lot of focused. You mind if I zero two little mind vitamin do for. All. Right. We've had a lot of focus on the Kobe thing and I I was thinking. So I've had all these epiphanies have been peeling the onion and figuring out what is the real answer? What does it really mean to be free and? One of the ways to do that is. Or maybe the most. The only way that you can really control in your own life is to try to have control over your food over your health over your self-defense on an individual basis. So rotarians can fight to defend the bill of rights or other things like that but ultimately real freedom and I think money is also problems. So like if you were free for money that would also be a kind of freedom excuse me. And I thought well I know that right but I'm I have kids that are I'm not very flexible right now I've got teenagers. MIASMA works I. Just I have a life has been built around this and not sure have the energy to completely change the paradigm of my own life and I just thought of a little analogy like not everyone gets on that last chopper out of Saigon. Remember that picture of the river like the last from Nineteen seventy-two, very famous iconic video of the last chopper like overloaded with people to as the US was pulling out of the Vietnam was. Like another way of thing is like not everyone gets on the last spaceship to Mars. An earth is collapsing and not everybody's getting. They say we'll have ruined for a certain amount of people. Yeah and you're definitely not getting the like on the site on the old people and the slow people are not getting on that chopper sick people. They're not going to put a hand up they're going to take a little and you have to choose whatever. Yeah I don't even know if they choose. It's just you're not GonNa get to the helicopter. If you're slower sick I'M NOT GONNA get to it from too old. So I was just thinking about what that was. You know the full of Saigon everybody knew they wanted to get on that chapter chapter because why? Because the the Saigon was falling and what does that mean what that means is? There was a regime change. There is a battle for control of the governments of that land and those people, and it was a revolution a revolutionary change to the the way of governments to the culture to everything a regime change. And a lot of people are going to suffer for that the change was going to be radical and it was. And that's exactly what happened here. Now, that's what happened. They're not obeying the constitution anymore we have had a radical revolutionary coup change in the government change in the regime. When we get out of this on the other side, my kids aren't maybe they go back to school maybe we go back to work, but it's not gonna be the same you brought the story about. The building's being different. We've seen this everything's going to be highly wired highly surveilled that the nature of our transportation is going to be different of our health. Everything's GonNa. We're going to live in a different world and it will be it is a regime changing coup revolution that's really negated the constitution, the foundational documents of this country and that's what we just experienced with. Is Gone, and we're not on it and they've done this overtly and they've gotten people to ask for this through this crisis that we've gone through and they've expedited this process. It had been working slow and subtle to do this to transform society over the previous years it was not near as overt, but through the pandemic, they've just laid to bear everything they're doing it seems like. An incremental ISM was the was the watchword since the sixties. That's how they did it for sure and you didn't notice that every single thing that they ultimately got implemented completely they never acknowledged they didn't get rid of poverty or racism or all the things that they said these are the programs settled do it they brought the programs that it didn't do it but because there's was incremental nobody noticed by now you have the World Economic Forum. And the great resets was about to go and yesterday when I read that hack attack thing I'm sure that your signaling that with what you're saying from the great reset and yesterday I, talked about hack attack where they said philanthropies and found philanthropic organizations and foundations will merge and will provide the overarching stability of government when nation states The Echo. That is the coup..

Imran Amed and Tim Blanks on Where Fashion Goes From Here
"Hi, this is Ron Ahmed founder and CEO of the business of fashion and welcome to the podcast. Each season after fashion Mumbai. Sit Down with Tim planks, and we hash out what we've learned what we've observed and what we've taken away from the latest season, a fashion shows of course this season was completely different, but it was still worth having a catch up with Tim to explore. Fashion goes from here here's. Tim Blanks inside fashioned. Everybody a welcome to be oh ethel lives. I'm here with Tim blanks our editor at large, and you know usually around this time of year, Tim and I have spent. Several weeks on end in the back of a car. Navigating Fashion Week. And so we thought well. We can't do that this year, but Tim, I've still been keeping in touch of course and We usually record podcast conversation. Just reflecting on the fashion season that was and so we thought well. There's still a lot to talk about so I asked him. To join me, welcome Tim. I am Ron. How're you doing good? Good I like your shirt. He said mutually good. I'm seeing. New, thing glamour. Lack Raw Glam rock. Okay Difference. I'm not capable of climate, but I am capable of Glam rock some. Well. Our conversation today is called where it is fashion. Go from here and I know it's something that's been. On your mind a lot, it's certainly been on my mind but before we dive into that specifically you were I guess four months foreign a bit months into lockdown now or limited I, I sort of I date the transitional moment I came back from Paris on Much A. Figure that March the was the day that you could feel the storm, clouds had kind of well and truly Gabid of the fashion so I kind of date everything for much. The I think the last time that we saw anybody actually in our flat was March the seven nine. And said however many citizens. Zana's how how however long it is since we haven't seen anybody. and everything's being done like this kind of digitally signed the last time you and I saw each other in person was record our podcast for the end of that season and I. You know I don't know. I. Don't know if you remember what we talked about. It was obviously a very strange moment, and we didn't know what was about come, but one of the questions that we were grappling with. was whether we would all look back at that fashion week in and wonder if it was irresponsible for all of us to be sitting in a snuggled up next to each other at fashion, shows and dinners while this. Virus was spreading and what we know now tim is virus was spreading. It was readying actively in Italy and in France just as fashion week was going on so looking back now. What what do you think? I. I wasn't thinking irresponsible I mean there was. But because you know, we live Italy the the day we left Italy giorgione cancel the show. And Joe Digitally and there was a little bit of kind of. Huffing and puffing about that and Oh let's so dramatic whatever and I and then the airport in Milan at night was like. The fall of Saigon It was just so crazy. Wasn't people trying to get out of the country? Where was people trying to get out of the county? No because they were panicking about virus necessary. Just it was a set. It was sense of. Some enormous. Ominous! Force? and then getting to Paris and finding that you know people were saying. Shall we shop wait? You'll have a show in nothing. Really the either a couple of shows cancel. was still you know I always competitive? This that whole moment in World War Two that was? One that was a sinkhole. The phony war before the war actually started. There was moment where everybody knew that was going to be a war, but it hadn't happened, so they were kind of. Suspended animation and that's kind of what it was. Td that this because. I don't think anybody knew it was gonNA. Be As bad as it turned out to be at coins. But still it was a solo. Remember I was in the I. Requirements often before his show. He said to me. You think this is the one. And I said well. Do you and I just didn't know that point, and and you know what the weird thing is. Allocating many months later, this March April may June five months later. We still don't know because I. Feel, the feel it. Still the the doctors who will leading out shaping our opinions on this I don't think. Completely show what it is at dinner would. It just it just feels you know when you read. Eddie meteorologists is so excited by this virus, because it is such a challenge and a multi focal. It's just this incredible.

I'm concerned is still like everybody else is still not this dilemma. What's going to happen? But I think we do know that this is the one I mean.

Shake, rattle and swallow snake is on the menu
"Take your seat with the rest of the class and let's get right to today's topic by now you've probably recovered enough from Saint Patrick's Day to hear the truth. Saint Patrick did not drive snakes out of Ireland there were never any stakes in Ireland. Drive out you see. The weather is too cold for snakes and the water. They would have to swim through to get to Ireland's to Coal Ireland. Is the last place a snake would go on vacation. The Mediterranean would be nice. But that doesn't mean I won't take advantage of folklore therefore we're going to talk about eating snake now the first comet you'll have formulas hey stupid. Don't you know? Some snakes are poisonous. Then I'll give you a wicked little grin and tell you that you're wrong. This will annoy you but hear me out. Snakes her not poisonous their venomous. So chomping down on a snake won't hurt you but when it whips around and bite you best know where the nearest hospital is. It's the venom that's dangerous when it's injected into the skin. Heck you could swallow venom all day and it won't hurt you unless you have a cut in your mouth your best course of action before you get ready to have a delicious plate of Cobra stick cut its head off. A chance of being injected with venom has now dropped dramatically. Unless you pick up the head snakeheads have been known to reflexively by up to ninety minutes after being severed when you cut the head off. Let it fall into a bucket. Then stay away from it until the next morning and be careful not to prick your finger on a Fang now. There's this guy who likes to kill his snake biting its head off. It seems to me that he has some serious male insecurity issues. But I'll put a link to the video in the show notes. China consumes the greatest number of snakes. The most favored dishes snake soup. And it's considered a delicacy in the Cantonese region. It contains the meat of at least two types of snakes. The soup tastes slightly. Sweet because the addition of Chrysanthemum leaves and spices more. Modern recipes include pepper vinegar and thin wafers of fried dough to enrich flavour and texture. A bowl cost you around eight bucks and you should plan on getting a bowl soon as those who make the soup aren't finding many people who want to learn how to do it because it requires the handling of venomous snakes. If you're in Hong Kong look for the restaurant Snake King Law on Hillier Street. It's been making the stuff for more than one. Hundred Years Water. Snakes pythons typical stars of Snake Soup but Chinese Cobra banded crate Indochinese rat. Snakes try rope beauty snake and the hundred pace viper as popular as well in the. Us rattlesnake is most popular variety but with the proliferation of Pythons in Florida. You're likely to see that on the menu as well. Three and a half hours of snake meat will cost you ninety three calories which is half the calories in one third of the fat that are in a Sirloin steak. Those figures can vary depending upon the type of snake. Snakes like other animals may contain parasites and other infections that could be transmitted to humans they can be neutralized by proper handling freezing and thorough cooking as for the taste. And you probably already know the answer this. It tastes like chicken although some say frog legs or a better comparison rattlesnake in the US often battered and fried the New York Times called Desert Whitefish. The writer said it's tough full of little bones and not much meat. So it'd be no snake stakes for you. Now we're going to travel to be at Phnom where you can enjoy a live Cobra heart. When you're in Saigon grab a table at the jungle barbecue guavas weasel porcupine in other tasty treats when you arrive they take you to the back where you can select your very own snake after your appetizer. The snake will be brought to your table by two servers. Bearing large knives and a half full bottle of rice vodka since the snake is still alive to head comes off I. The Venom is drained into the bottle. Then the blood from the rest of the body is added. The Heart's still beating is placed on a saucer and offered to the most important person at the table. Censure from out of town the offer may well be yours proper manners dictate that you then drop the heart into the glass of blood and venom and down the hatchet goes. If you're quick enough you may even feel the beating heart. Go down your throat by now. No doubt your stomach rumbling. And you're ready for a snake. Snack in Nashville. The closest you'll come.

wherever you go here in metro Atlanta try to go to the box office yes save a ton of money okay Gideon okay so I want I want I want to read you something okay yes ma'am all right so hold on I'm getting in my little phone you're ready yes now this is in second Corinthians it was written by Paul you know all of the apostles they had jobs right all right work if people read the Bible they can see that the it's all diss apostles had jobs they they supported themselves okay so poses is writing a letter to the congregation the Corinthian congregation he says let each one do just says here's resolved in his heart not grudgingly or under compulsion for god loves a cheerful giver now if Paul says in what you most people deem as the New Testament yeah Paul says that it is not under compulsion where does the percentage of typing come into play here it is a carryover from the Old Testament it was actually yeah and I'm going to go a little short reference it did look like it should be in the war all not of the world and of course you know I know you were in the news sure why not he's now running for Senate stingy and and I also want to reference a positive component young man she asked and the other rapper who is from Atlanta Mike where they're trying to purchase I think they have and revitalize the bank yet seafood place yeah so that that's excellent okay today actually that cooperative economics he is the key so when we talk about and I have to agree with you totally about the system instigating division among us and specifically because they know we accomplish spiritual people but have been utilized to divide us in the churches in because the charges are provided and that's where the bulk of our collective bargaining money goals they have systematically and psychologically divided the hairs because many of the hands are hirelings they're in it for the money like you say it to DO not under compulsion and that's just not that's the most ones that speaking groups staff most of them because the leadership is about keeping the red crate and the lights on where the messiah himself was on the streets work with the poor now getting back to where we were talking about as far as the collective bargaining in preparing out people real estate and feeding ourselves therein lies the dilemma if there's a psychological impact why this money is left to these people so that they can clearly see our our people rather than support us and feed us and produce our own and then there's this physical systematic impediments that causes us not to be able to like the Muslims used to have fish and control the industry from an international perspective our that has been cut off and we're seeing that at this demonstration our influence and embody S. continues to separate us from our group so we have a lot working against this but we also are people understand and have power over our sales we make the decisions what we give our money so this is why I started out the show with communication because I don't think that we're teaching the next generation communication exactly and they're not able to communicate effectively if you can't communicate effectively and I promise you have seen this and in people in general you you you talk to somebody and you know could you see it in their eyes you see it in their body and in in their soul that they have a thought that needs to be conveyed but they just can't get it out what not to throw this in here and you are the one to bring this subject up this American language the linguistics that terminology I'm not even going to believe that in for what I'm about to say simply is how we communicate is so glad overall and so our children are being taught the L. bonded DTS and that you own it well I let that nonsense that wasn't allowed when I was coming up well in the Paris which we here we go is the family dynamic that exchange as you well know once you break the family dynamic and take the structure away and the discipline and order and create the single on clay and in two children wearing these tight closed up showing that night you know when you do not grow up the past mistakes you wanna go out here show your hand and they didn't know that doing the future that would be the style of student literally showing a male female I think about that often so would your but your out there's going to

HBO's Watchmen; Dissecting Episodes 7 to 9
"You haven't seen every episode of watchmen yet. Please turn this off. Especially the tenth episode need to see the tenth episode. There's no tenth episode but there are nine incredible episodes. Make sure you've watched all them and I think think also if you haven't listened to the first two episodes of this podcast definitely worth a listen to before we get to this one. We are going to be unpacking everything we are going going to be analyzing everything we're going to be talking about the big finish now. I can just jump to the end if you want. I could just go right to them and start saying okay. Does this this meanness does. This mean this but I'm not going to do that. I I will eventually get to those but I like to UNWRAP. These gifts. Slowly are three episodes that we're covering here episode. Seven eight and nine nine are entitled an almost religious. Aw a god walks into a bar and the final episode. See how they fly. The series stories managed to throw dozens and dozens and dozens of balls into the air. And not only did they all land beautifully but everything turned out to be intentional. Everything had purpose. Everything added up and that is Beautiful it's a beautiful thing when the equation balances out and you know. I asked you last time. We spoke what. What was your sense of how things are going? What's your sense of how things went? Can you feel about what you've accomplished now that it's done done well. I'm immensely proud of the show. I've I've talked a lot of I apologize for my stammering because I'm I'm still processing. And the experience of making the show overlapped period of the show starting to air. We were finally viz effect shots and working on the sound in the music. All the way up until basically Thanksgiving so I've had maybe nine or ten days as the conversation that we're having right now to be finished finished with it and so I'm still processing so I'm immensely proud of the show on a on a subatomic level. All writers want is to communicate this thing inside out of us that we can't quite verbalize can only verbalize it through our storytelling. And so you don't know what that is when you first start you feel that that that glimmer twinkle of inspiration Spiratou of I have something to say. And then basically spent two years of my life figuring out what that wanted to be and then as that effort became more collaborative the show stopped feeling like mine. It started feeling like ours. The second most important thing if not the most important thing was that when these nine episodes were all said and done whether people love them or hate them that the general consensus would be. This guy really loves watchman and his. His intention was clear that he wanted the show to earn. The name watchmen. It had to be watchman for people who have had a thirty year. Relationship with watchmen like I have or came to it later. People who have a pre existing relationship with this who may have watched the show with their arms crossed from jump which is how I would have been watching it had I not been making making it if their arms gradually sort of unfolded. I don't need them to be clapping at the end. But if they made it to the end of episode nine in her sort of like okay this thing can call. Itself Self Watchmen. That was the brass ring. And I don't know right now whether or not that's going to be the mass consensus or what the mass consensus even even is any more in the pop culture. But I am sort of feeling right now at this moment in time like this thing is in conversation with the original watchman you you can call it a sequel. You can call it in Oman but it's not a cover band like it tapped into that same kind of energy that launched the original. Its Own thing but that's the thing that I wanted most under my Christmas tree. Well you are allowed to be proud and it strikes me that you saw something as a kid. Did in watchmen that you really admired that you loved and one need decided. I think I'm going to go create some life of my own and you did. I WANNA get into our first episode here an almost religious awe. And we're GONNA talk about Fema Lot here because as I arrived at the end of this show I kept finding in these loops of themes that were going through and recurring over and over and here. We see the Millennium Clock. We're not quite sure what it's going to do yet. That is ticking. Down to an event you talk a little bit about how you guys thought of time as an element in a show called watchman. I think that anybody who's ever been in a writer's room and engage in that collaborative process. You spend hours and hours and hours and hours talking about theme and ideas and you interrogate gate. Why you're doing this? You talk about things that are interesting to you etc.. And then it comes time where the Buzzer goes off and you just have to write the story but hopefully the audience can feel all the conversations that you had. I've talked about this with you before. which is we made? The sort of recipe list of adjectives that we would use to describe. The original watchmen are also also plot ideas the Matt visual ideas like the Smiley face it Cetera. But we also knew that we had to sort of invent our own. So it's like we did a smiley face in the pilot but then we were like we have to start to find our our own motif. So maybe that's going to be an egg and the reason that it's GonNa be an egg is gonNA set up something that we're doing in the finale so it all comes together but it screenwriting one. Oh one that you need to have a ticking clock and if you try to avoid it in the third act of a movie if you're doing any kind of particularly this genre right Superhero Asura or sci-fi it's like you always want to avoid it and so it kind of felt like one of the narrative postive necessities of this show was setting up in the pilot that the seventh cavalry had a plan and that their plan was gonna come to fruition in the end game of the series and that was going to be one the things that was just sort of powering things through and on the heels of that revelation was the idea of God. We don't WanNa do that. You know like is there a way to subvert that idea the cavalry is going to have a plan but what if someone has already figured out a way to decimate their plan. What if the cavalry's plan is secondary to someone else's plan and then per the the clock idea? I think that the ideas like it's not watchmen if you aren't constantly referring to clocks and so that is going to be a motif and how can we make o'clock in emotional no idea for many of the characters and kind of went from there. Well in general I think one of the things you guys do so well is considered what is expected. And then lean in into it. Only because you're using misdirection. It's a a really useful technique but only when it's well done as we have progressed through the series. It's not like we have detached from what I think is the main theme which is race And there is a moment in the story where we're getting Angeles story and Angela a bar. There is this not well known comic called Ibar Black Superman. It's a it's actually a black station film. Oh to fill. Yeah Yeah Oh comic. It's no Not Not if there should be a comic of it well there might be now. Yeah exactly and so. That was intentional. Yes this is one of the hidden little bits here and that is mirrored by something that happens in this episode. We see Young Angela. She's a little girl. She's living in Saigon with her parents. The wars concluded America Echo has won because of Dr Manhattan's intervention and. She is trying to rent a movie.
