We'd just picking our own I can give you Sam you want me to go down the list I'll do because I feel like if you just tell me to pick one I'm GonNa just keep on picking Amazon every time, and then I'm GonNa miss a lot of the other stuff. So maybe you gonNA throw them out there that I wouldn't think of number one with a bullet the use of Youtube and blogging I mean come on we're. Really. Solid. It's foundational to the movie Emma Stone famously dishes and via YouTube. She likes sent in a a real that she did her Webcam or whatever it. Just it really works.

There is something she would be a good youtube star which Amazon like you have other things to do please don't it's not the path that you need to take now but she could do it. It's it's realistic totally she there's a lot of options for her I'm so many platforms. I feel like if she were a little younger Amazon would be a great talker she shouldn't have physical comedy announced she could dance video she could do comedy she could do so many things. Let her do it now list age limits on anything. Okay. I think she might not want to. Ensure. Number two what age the best.

"shea" Discussed on The Sporting Life with Jeremy Schaap
"Are a lot of players there. Lot of great athletes in the annals of Sport and American sport in particular. But they're only a few you would really call essential who means something beyond the game who transcend sports. What are those figures? Undoubtedly is Willie mays. He's now eighty nine years old. His career came to an end almost a half century ago. But he's still looms so large in our collective consciousness. Willie mays is the CO author of a book. That has just been released co-authored with John Shea the longtime baseball writer from the Bay the book is titled Twenty Four Life Stories and lessons from the say. Hey Kid it. It is a pleasure to welcome to the show John Shea John. Thank you for being with us. Jeremy My pleasure thank you. I was trying to articulate. Perhaps inelegantly in that introduction. Why Willie mays is is almost Someone who has the power of myth in our society they it. There's still this power to or of Willie mays. How how would you put your finger on it? No you're right I I kind of figure cultural icon American hero in not just a baseball hero or sports hero but an living lights in. Who's with US TODAY? And thankfully opened his heart and memory banks and great knack for storytelling to to me And we were able to put this book together about not just the man but the career and the exemplary life you know guy who inspired millions but also details who inspired him and that is what. We tried to capture in the book. The story of Willie mays Who's born in Nineteen thirty? One came up to the major leagues in Nineteen Fifty One Did all those spectacular things on a ball field I think he was on the in the on Deck Circle In his first year when Bobby Thomson hit the shot heard round the world. Of course the VIC words catch in the fifty four sweep of the Indians. But he's one of those lives that tells us so much about America in the twentieth century as well. How do those stories track each other? American Willie mays you're right. This is A teenager who played with the Black Barons and the Negro Leagues and got signed by the giants. Right after his graduation in data assigned to an all white league the Trenton giants playing in the class. B Interstate League that only the only African American on the team but the entire league. This is nineteen fifty three years after Jackie broke the color barrier and is going into some of these towns here in the same thing. Jackie was hearing and couldn't stay with his teammates couldn't eat with his teammates and a lot of the towns and told me in a moment that I will never forget he said I wondered if it was all worth and my God gave me chills. Because I've been what I mean. No Willie mays and baseball. He could have gone back to the Birmingham and work in the mines like his father did and luckily fortunately for everybody on the planet basically he persevered and overcame and wouldn't let the biggest win and was rookie of the year and fifty one. Nbn fifty four and played twenty two seasons and you know are the best all around player in the history of the game and like we said lived a life that really wasn't like Mickey Mantle who without out at night and corrals and drank heavily and had a certain career because of a bit and Willie took different paths to speaking with John Shea about the new book Co authored with Willie mays twenty four life stories and lessons from the say. Hey Kid and this is a book about The people who influenced him as you said the people that he is influenced as well..
"shea" Discussed on Hellbound with Halos
"Is it real? Is this really at addiction? I think that people like Tiger Woods and Harvey Weinstein. While I'm not GonNa say that they are aren't sex addicts That I think when a celebrity uses it as as a reason for bad behavior I can't say they're right or wrong because I don't know their situation but I think a lot of people see it as an excuse and a lot of people have trouble understanding for US addictions video game addiction gambling addiction or sex addiction. It's different in away from drugs or alcohol. Although a lot of the same brain chemistry happens exactly the same with your dopamine Serotonin oxytocin. I won't bore you with the chemistry but the same thing happens. It diction addiction is addiction addiction. And you have to have people understand that and I tell people the alcohol did the exact same thing for me that the pornography did from day one to the very last day six years ago it served the same purpose. So I'm living proof that it's exactly the same thing. It is a real addiction and You know obviously another big question for addicts. As what do I do now? How do I get better for partners? Who surprise me after my first book came out. I started to get just as many inquiries from partners the wives and girlfriends for the most part of porn addicts out wanting to know what they did wrong and what I've discovered is that Horn addiction and sex addiction. There there's a there's a common belief or common saying that when somebody's addicted whether it's drugs or alcohol whatever everybody in the family's addicted everybody in the family suffers horn a sex addiction. Have this whole other side to it. Because you don't ask yourself you know is is is my partner Using heroin. Because I'm not enough or you know. Did my husband develop a gambling addiction? Because I'm not good in the bedroom but because sex and porn have so much to do with intimacy and human sexuality that you've got these partners who suffer from what's called betrayal trauma and subways. They suffer just as bad as the addict because suddenly they learn of years of an addiction that they didn't know and they're suddenly wondering who are they dating. Who were they married to? What else was the sky high? What's what's going on here and it's like you Y- these women. Describe feeling like chumps. Feeling like the wolves been pulled over. There is not knowing what's real and what's not and they really have. You really have to explain to them that this has nothing to do with you. You know this. Even if he's telling you it has to do with you. That's because he has entered an recovery to understand. It doesn't people who are casual user support. Recreational uses of born Zehr. The kind who actually on some nights. We'll skip sex because they don't feel like doing and they'll just masturbate to porn That's when women will sometimes talk with each other and hear those stories or men will talk with each other. I didn't WanNa sleep with her last night so I just took care of myself when you're talking about an addict it's completely different. I wasn't looking for intimacy with pornography. I wasn't looking for an exchange of sex. I was looking to escape. I was looking for somebody who is completely compliant. And that person on the page or on the screen never says no They allow me to be the master. Allow me to be in control because I have these control issues dating back to being a kid when I had no control and I was forced into those rooms or forced into these degrading situations. So you know. It's almost ironic that the women who are the partners of addicks actually have far less to do with their addiction. Then the women who have boyfriends or husbands were recreational users who do use it as a replacement for sex now in that or do use as a replacement for intimacy now. And then you know it's it's It's the same thing as if you are somebody who can have a beer or two. That's fantastic no good for you. I'm glad you can't but I can't have a beer or two. I never went to bars and had to be too because that was wasteful to me if I couldn't have four or five. I didn't drink at family gatherings I didn't drink because I didn't want to be drunk in front of them and I wasn't going to drink if I couldn't get drunk so while my brother's wife might be like you know. Hey you've already had two. You can't have any more. My wife never had to say that to me but she knew when we got home. I'd be having to cases not to beers So that that's the thing. There is that When it comes to partners they need to understand that they have to do with creating the addiction. Why addiction was there ten years before I met my wife and by that point I had learned how to hide it ten years of learning to hide it from people. You get pretty good at it and when you're not looking for a problem you don't see it there and the alcohol became more of an obvious problem so my wife's worried. I'm out drunk driving. Never thinking that at night. I'm luring women into taking off their tops. That just never entered. Her mind. Wouldn't enter any normal person's mind so yeah I get I get a lot of Interest from partners. That's what my second book was specifically created for partners. I wrote it with a licensed marriage and family therapist. Who deals with partners in these situations and it's a very simple Q. And A. Format just because when I wrote my first book because when I ended up being arrested I went to the bookstore. Me Being a bit of a Geek. I WanNa do read as much as I could about addiction specifically porn addiction. There was almost nothing out there. You know. There was a couple academic checks and there are some studies. And while I'm the kind of Geek who likes to read studies I know most people don't so yeah when I was in jail. I actually decided that I was going to write my first book which was a memoir which describes how guy ends up where he where I ended up because most of us I believe that a or an addict is this Nineteen Year. Old Pimple faced guy. Living in his mom's basement this in-cell who's never kissed a girl at just angry at the world and here I was. You know I own two businesses. I'm a city councillor wife and kids to to cars three dogs you know. I'm not your stereotypical porn addicts. I wrote that book for the other people out there. Who aren't stereotypical because most aren't and I need to though Josh is it. Addiction knows no bounce absolutely at the you look at the opioid epidemic in this country and a lot of it is successful people in their forties and fifties. That are overdosing on heroin. And it's the people that you would never think in. It's not so surprising to those in the field anymore. I don't think but it's it's interesting to me when I go out and meet with a couple of friends or something and they're like man Kevin you know it's bad out there you know. What have you seen in It's got to be like all kids are getting bad stuff and I'm just thinking ahead like no. You got it all wrong. It's Natalie kids in I guess that just. I just wanted to make that Point Josh. That it knows no bounce not not none at all and that's why but As the started to pick up a little bit of steam there are now a few resources out there. I created the book. I've tried to create my website but there were nothing for partners and partners. Were going through just as much. You know tremendous trauma. I had my trauma on the front end then. My wife has her trauma right in that moment because suddenly she's married to someone she's never known before she's married to someone who lost his job in a very public way when when she drove me home from the sheriff's office there were. Tv News vans waiting for us. Because I was that well known in the community so this was a complete flip flop of everything she knew. She handled it very well. Compared to a lot of women she got help very early. She took care of herself very early and she recognized that I had been sick for a while And she saw me do the hard work so she stuck around That's got to be one of the hardest things as far as when wives or girlfriends reach out to you to have them understand that. It's not their fault. It's gotta be so difficult to have them understand that that sentence he hasn't had sex with me in a year and he well I. I'm sure you know this people who are doing a lot of heroin. They don't have sex either people who are drinking a lot they don't have sex either addicts gender unless you're a sex addict or an intercourse addict. You're not having a lot of sex. It's just not on the forefront of your mind you're not healthy but because pornography is so tied to sex so tied to sexuality that gets all muddied up. I'm not staying away from you in the bedroom because you've done something wrong or I don't WanNa touch you. I'm staying away from you because I don't want to deal with anybody I want to isolate. I wanted just be by myself. I WANNA be with my crutch I want to be with. The only thing thing that I know is going to get me through tonight. I love you dearly but fucking. You is not getting me through tonight. Masturbating porn is. I know there are naked people about situations. I know there's an orgasm in both situations but these are night and day as far as what they really are. And that's what's tough to get across because there are so many similarities with or addiction With acting out on porn addiction and with the intercourse of making process that it's a natural jump for women to get there. So you really have to drive home the fact again and again that this has nothing to do with you and then if you've got a guy who's in denial of having an addiction. He's blaming her for not being sexy enough he's blaming her for not keeping interesting in the bedroom and as I always say to them I say to these women. You could bring in two cheerleaders into the bedroom tomorrow night and have a wild orgy the next night. He's going to want three dot going to be better this is. He's dealing with trauma through this acting out with pornography the way that people deal with it with heroin or drinking or gambling or food or whatever their vice happens to be again like you're saying it's about the the chemicals of the brain makeup. It's not so much about the physical interaction I think. That's the hardest thing for people understand because without the fancy technology and not seen the chemicals being released in you know. People are very visual. We need to see the visual. So it's easy to see. My wife is standing right there. But it's hard to see like the neuro releases in the brain and the brain light up during these events absolutely and when you're talking about intimacy that's the last thing that an addict wants an addict wants to isolate. An addict is a very selfish person. Who is only thinking of themselves? So how are you supposed to have true intimacy with somebody when all you can think about is your needs When you're a sick person and that's those are the things that you know aren't as hard to explain to somebody who's the the wife of a gambling addict or the wife of an alcoholic but when it comes to human sexuality you know it hits them hard so I I wrote my last book again with this with this therapist so women would have something out there to refer to as as a resource because there were just so many who suffer so greatly In this new world of the Internet in this world of the first generation of people who didn't know a world before the Internet are now getting married are now having kids. And that's why I'm out there on any show that a let me on screaming about this stuff because if we don't do something soon this could be a giant health crisis you talked about the opioids you can watch dragnet from the late sixties and. They're talking about heroin. You can listen to rap. You can listen to rap in the eighties. And they're talking about abusing Vicodin UKIAH. Tell me we didn't see this coming. We saw this coming and we did nothing about it because people who used heroin in the eighties and early nineties were disgusting. Druggies who lived by the train tracks who we didn't want to deal with and that wasn't true back then and it's not true now and none of us. WanNa talk about four Dogerthy so we're not GonNa talk about Pornography Addiction. Obviously meanwhile a recent survey says that thirty two percent of men between eighteen and thirty have either self identified as having porn addiction or believe that they have a problem with pornography. That's one out of three men under thirty. So if we don't deal with this they're going to be forty they're going to be the rate of women becoming addicts is absolutely exploding at this point they're even dirtier than us but the thing is they now have equal access. The adult film world was always geared towards your straight white guy. Well now you can create any kind of foreign you want and that and it turns out women are just a sexual is us? Gay People are just a sexual us. Black People Chinese people everybody has justice sexual as the next person and we an a straight white males or not the only ones who were being targeted anymore. So you've got these groups that were in a word under served by the by the mainstream pornography industry who are now getting their fixed because in everybody's pocket is now the greatest porn computer ever invented in our telephones and the average age kid sees porn is no longer twelve years old. It's eight years old and they're not. They're not equipped to do that. So you know when I'm out there screaming and yelling about this. I always tell people. I don't know what we're going to do about that twenty five year old guy who has erectile dysfunction because he's burned his brain on porn but I do know what we need to do is start telling the eleven year old boys about that guy the way that we tell the eleven year old boys about the heroin users and about the alcoholics. We need to start making this part of our health Education of our children and it doesn't have to be graphic it doesn't have to be dirty. It can be age appropriate starting at six or.

Your turn will come. I hope so so you said you traveled. You've traveled around the world yet. Where have you gone and why have you gone around the world?

Some other countries over there so yeah I feel like I've seen the world I I haven't been outside of the US in nearly twenty years now and have no real interest to go elsewhere. I I love long road trips around our country it's There's so much to see so many different things so many different kinds of people that you don't have to go to Europe or Asia to experience different cultures different landscapes. We really have it all here and I love to Dri- by hate airplanes the opposite I can't nations get at that set. You know. There's a zen mode have after about three hours.

"Album because they have staff writers for that and also they've got a hundred other freelancers pitching stuff. So don't pick that stuff but you could probably pitch Covering High School football game to your local newspaper. Because maybe there's two or three people pitching. He was the one who put me on that advice. Which was really really helpful. This other guy named James Bussey who I think he's at the time maybe working at Yahoo or something like that. He emailed me back. This guy named Chris Ex. Who was writing about rap all the time I read him a bunch of places he is. He not only email me back but he agreed to have We had lunch together a couple of times because he just happened to be in. Houston for for a short amount of time. This game Henry Dosso Margaret Downing at the at the pre. Like you know I'm reaching out to whoever's email address I can find it. Whoever was doing the stuff that I wanted and I don't feel do it today. There's like a thing that I've practiced regularly reaching out to people who who I just read their stuff. And I am and impressed with and all like Cohen you know at New Yorker or or Morris or these sorts of people. Are Mike. How long I want to be around talent as much as possible. Let me try to absorb some just relying on the kindness of strangers. Yeah exactly and so you decide recently here like I said earlier you decide to start giving away some of your money because of that because you want to give some people some of the chances that you wish you had had like. It was an unusual thing. I don't know how overwhelmed I don't know if it was your wife. Good with what you were doing like what was happening there. Where all of a sudden you get inundated because if you're giving away money on the Internet people are going to appear in an avalanche. Yeah no there is always cool with it. We always talk about it but beforehand This most recent time. It was only a little bit of my own money that I gave away. I had like dollars into my ball count and I was like I said to whoever needed. And then people started sending money to my Vin Mall Count and being like. Can you give this to someone also can give someone also So every once in a while. Let's make our money like we did a learning and I wanted to set up a scholarship so we donated twenty grand to the San Antonio Association of Hispanic Journalists So that that sort of thing happens but usually on the Internet. It's like a little bit of my money then pooper just jump in then go for you know it. It's tens of thousands of dollars. This might be a dumb question. But why do that can your ticket later forming? Why why help? Yeah I mean obviously it feels good but a whole lot of people aren't doing that like obviously yes. Why help of course a lot of people like to help. But most people don't do it that way. Most people don't just decide to help the way that you're deciding to help you know I've had. I've had a few different people asking for version of of this question. And just just her talking about it out loud. I think the final answer that we have all agreed to settle on. Is that teaching very much? Felt like the job. I was supposed to be doing for the rest of my life. That was the first time I had a job that felt right when I was working at construction job. I knew that that wasn't where both could be ended at. That wasn't the thing I wanted to do when I was working at the various gas stations shoe stores or whatever or doing lawn work. I knew that wasn't where I was supposed to be but when I got into the classroom thing happens when you get in that classroom for the first two or three years so that the kids at this school the kids are GonNa beat the hell out of you. Just run every scam. They can on you mess with you every sort of way and one of the things that's going to happen. You're going to be like you know what this sucks. I'm out of here or you're going to be like this sucks. I need to get better at this. And that was the first time jobless hard and I felt like I. I WanNa get better at this all the other times. I screw this job. I'm Outta here so I started. You know I really really cared a great deal about teaching. I just love that job and then and it offers you every single day the opportunity to do a good thing For a person you establish some sort of connection with a with a kid and you can see it when it happens every every teacher will tell you they know. They have a moment in their head when they going. Oh I reached this person or I had a meaningful interaction with this other person teaching. It allows you that opportunity all the time writing for me. Writing does not right in this good for my ego. Writing is what got me on. The Dan Lebatardshow. Nobody wanted to talk to me when I was a teacher. Now that I'm writing people want to talk to me. All the time right in is good for my ego but teaching what was good for my heart and giving away stuff on the internet or helping with golfing. Me's or setting up a scholarships or doing whatever and then it allows me that same sort of feeling for at least a little bit of time that I would get when I was teaching. So that's probably the reason I try to do it as often as I can. How did you meet your wife? Was it through teaching. Now we met in college. We met early on in my college career She we had a class together. I saw her. She was the most graceful beautiful woman I'd ever seen and I was like. I WanNa talk to this to this woman over here and that's how I started. I but I knew I mean you were in college if you're an attractive woman in college you're probably getting hit on multiple times every single think that's because men are awful and so. I figured that that that's what was happening with her so I didn't want to be another one of those people so it's like I'm Gonna I'm GonNa go like retro with this. I'm going to write a little note and pass it across the classroom and that's going to do and that's how we started talking and then that was twenty years ago and here we are. What did she see in you? You gotta ask her that. I have no idea our Poor my teeth were jacked up. I had a big head and a little tiny body. I'll I had a lot of strikes against me but she saw someone who knows maybe I was. I was probably just funny. Funny Guy How? How responsible is she for I mentioned the movie the wife earlier. But how responsible is she for your writing success in terms of encouraging it supporting it and you know being in a position where there was a desperation involved where you had to take care of everybody. I'll she largely responsible for that and you can say that in a very practical sense. She's responsible because she helped me early on like she was editing. All of the stuff that I was doing before I would turn it into the actual editor. So she's teaching me like that but also yes. She's years sort of guessing you up. She's like my Mark Jackson. I'm Reggie Miller. She is Mark Jackson and she's like. Yeah the man you could do this. You could do this. You just go go all of this stuff that I wanted to do. She's been like that forever though. It didn't it didn't matter that this was the thing. I was doing to make money. There was a time in my life. Dan when I watched the David Blaine Special David Blaine. Yeah the magician. I watched David Blaine Street magic and I was like ooh. I WANNA be a street magician and I was trying to learn how to do that and she was like you'd be great streep Justin I was. I watched a skateboarding documentary. I was like Oh aren't very professional. Skateboarder twenty six years old. Never skated. She's like you'd be a great professionals. You know she's just one of these types of people who just wants to support the people that she cares about. She's largely responsible for all of this stuff man. I'm not sure it's a lot more ridiculous though to say well. Why would he have been no seriously a writer? A magician or a skateboarder. All three of three of the paths are pretty improper improbable. Yeah they are. They are certainly certainly that. Also very though I e though there's no there's I'm not coordinated enough also need to be cool at a version of cool anyway to be like a successful tree magician. That would have been stupid. That would've been really stupid. Street magician a really stupid path. No matter how much support you had at home. Yeah you're right. You're right Shea good talking to you I really appreciate. I'm happy for your success. First of all and I really appreciate the conversation. Yeah man thank you for having been a big fan for such a long time. There's so few of us out there. I've been watching you for for you. Know what I did. We're talking about Laremy and this will be our last thing that we can talk about but Lerman are hanging out. This is like a year ago and I was watching. How questionable and she you know I. I have like a string of shows that I watch and arrogant all work at the yard. Hopefully we're watching highly questionable. I'm just sort of giggling to myself. And she comes and sits down next to me and this is one of the episode where we're probably does handshake thing and it. It happens on thing. I started laughing and She's like asking what's going on and there's a video on youtube. I don't know if you're aware of this or did you want to. That has a whole like all of the time or most of the time where. He's pulled the trick. The handshake away with a high five away. Whatever and I showed. You're in a in a several minutes long and by like forty five seconds into a. She's just rolling laughing everything time and it just made me feel so good that she liked the thing that I liked and here we are all connected now and this is unbelievable moment for me right now. Thank you do you Do you see any of your father in my father. Or does she see any of her father or any any Mexican fathers that you grew up around. Yeah Yeah your your data. My Dad are very very similar but they both have the same sort of energy. Where's like most of the time they feel like silly and playful and laughing but also when I'm watching him he'll give you look every once in a while where I'm like. Oh probably don't play like you. You can push them a little bit but you can't push them seriously. You know what I'm saying. My Dad has the exact same sort of way. So we're we're all up here man you were. You were raised by a variety of uncles right. Yeah that's correct. My when my mom moved down to San Antonio was her my grandma and then she had Six brothers one of them passed away early on when I showed up I was a firstborn her firstborn sunshine and the teenager But there's GRANDPA. They all grew up sort of without their dad for the most part so the five remaining uncles gathered around me and almost like a you know like a bodyguard situation. They're like we're going to protect this kid. He's going to be the one who who makes it so. Yeah they've all uncle Matt uncle. Brian Uncle Jesse Uncle Rick and uncle manual does. That's that's the team right there. That's a cool story man. Happy for you legitimately happy for you. Thank you brother. Be say that's GonNa do it for us this week on South Beach sessions.

"shea" Discussed on Le Batard and Friends - South Beach Sessions
"Hey everyone welcome back to south beach sessions. I'm Mike Ryan the executive producer. The content train here at South Beach sessions keeps running this week. We have a really fascinating interview with Shay Serano. Now a lot of you may already know. Shaves her on a lot of you may follow him on twitter. He has been a bit of a newsmaker recently as New York Times just profiled him on one of the several giveaways that he's done on his twitter account here during the corona crisis. He's a New York Times bestseller shop. Serrano is a very popular writer. Bill Simmons sort of brought him into the mainstream. We'll talk to him about that in just a little bit. But he's a name that certainly been on your radar. Even if you're outside of Sports Shea. Serano has sort of infiltrated pop culture. Barack Obama gave him the endorsement. And since then he's been a rocket ship so dan Le Batard catches up with Shay Serano on this week's episode of South Sessions. We really hope that you enjoy it. We're trying to keep the content going out there even though it's pretty surreal time without further ado here. Is Dan Le Batard interviewing Shea Serrano on South Beach Sessions? I have never heard of a story like yours where someone goes and becomes a three time consecutive New York Times bestseller. But you don't have any training in writing. Can you explain like it's crazy? How is it that you arrive in a place where your deciding to write as a living when this is not something you'd ever considered before you're suddenly writing for living? The short version of the story is Larry Main. That's my wife. We were young and getting married and working at middle school teachers and that was the job we thought we were going to do for the rest of our lives. It was like a job that was very important to me and we were excited about and when you're a teacher you don't make the money. Maybe you know between the two of us. We were making a eighty five grand a year or something. Which if it's just two people and you know I live in a little apartment and Houston. That's not a problem. You're doing pretty great But we're getting married. She got pregnant with twins and there was a medical complications and suddenly she couldn't work anymore. About four months into the pregnancy. She had to be on bed rest so we went from people making eighty five grand a year to one person now probably making about forty two and responsible all of a sudden for what was going to be four mouth twelve mills every single day and I do. I just needed extra money. We needed to figure out how to bridge that gap. Because you're making at the time. Twenty two hundred bucks a month or something like that and my my My rent rent was sixteen hundred alone in our car. Payment was four hundred. There's two thousand bucks like we're screwed is what we're looking at so I just started trying to find it. You know Part time job and those applying at target Papuan places like this work at a grocery store waiter and Each time went on interview. They would tell me. Oh we can't hire you. 'cause you're you're working when we needed to work because you already have full time jobs so the thing. I don't work so I was straight up at home. Just googling work jobs writer was one of the ones on the list. The requirements for the writing part of it it said as you just basically an internet and the computer and I had both of those things so I was like. Oh let's give this a try here. We go that's crazy and so you decide to start writing. And what is the back story on? How much writing you had done before that at any point in your life. Did you have any inkling that you were good writer? Now is a miserable writer. I got really bad grades at school and like straight up. I get to college and then I go your your test. Scores are really bad. You'RE GONNA have to take remedial classes like this level of. Academic Rigor is what we receiving in South San Antonio. So I don't know I I didn't think of any good at it. I certainly definitely was not good at it but I unfortunately Laremy had worked at the College newspaper so she had at least a little bit of a background in there she was able to walk me through how to build up a story or how to you know. Write a thing or a how to use a comma but like that's where we were but No there was. No there was no No history there. You GotTa do the thing to make the money so I'm going to go the other thing that make money so the early stages it's like the movie the wife with Glenn Close where she's the actual writer. Yeah that's that's the best way to put it the first time ever. Somebody hasn't mentioned the wife to me who is not named Sean fantasy or Amanda Oven. And so how how long? How long did it take before you got past fear and doubt or? Was there no time for fear and doubt with writing as a way to make extra money? Because you're too busy hustling because you've got mouths to feed. I think there's always time her mirror doubt even after all these years. I'm still afraid every time I've publisher thing I had to go up. Yesterday I was nervous about people reading. That's just the way that it works. But it's like everybody has that sort of your you. You just can't let us stop you from doing the thing that needs to get done so sure we were. We were scared. We were nervous but like what are the options here. You're either GonNa do the work or you're not going to do the work either way. You're going to be afraid so let's get started but who the hell does that though. I have no experience writing. Is it because there were so few other options that you couldn't work from home so this was what were the other options work from home that you chose writing when you didn't have an affinity for writing artwork that were? I mean it's all the same stuff they're still out there now. That could be a mystery shopper. And make two hundred dollars to go to a place or you. Don't you want. Maybe you could possibly be a bartender to bartender school like they're a bunch of little little houses at that. Everybody was mentioning. You could do but again i. I had a very small amount of time that I could do the work in and I couldn't take time off of teaching to do this thing. So writing was just the one that made the most sense and then of course. I didn't know at the time writing was supposed to go to one and make money but the books that I was reading the stories that are reading online. It's like oh how you make six figures as a freelance. I was like Oh sure. People are getting paid while they're doing this. This this is what I need to do If I'm looking at the bills that we had to pay versus the money that we have coming in I think we needed like seven or eight hundred bucks extra a month to get by laws like well shoot. I could probably find this if I'm doing writing like if people are making six figures I should be able to make six hundred bucks a month And that's just how all of that stuff started. I think maybe by the end of the first year I was making a thousand bucks a month. Just straight up putting a bunch of blog posts or little articles. I like that and then you just start to build and build and and get the bigger places and they pay a little more money in there. You go again you know. We're just trying to pay some bills all that it was not like this wasn't a curving that. I thought I was trying to take that grow up. Dreaming of being a writer. This to me was no different than if I was painting. Houses with one of my uncles doing irradiation with one on my uncle's like it's just the job that needs to get done and this is one that I can do so I'll do that. So what are the details on where you started writing and how much you were being paid for writing and who was reading it. I don't imagine anybody who is reading the very first thing that Roque was for this loan neighborhood newsletter that This husband and wife were printing up like literally in their garage printing it up themselves and then handing it out. It's called the near northwest. Banner and I've I've found that little paper at a pizza place that we used to go to kiosk with a bunch of different like you know little publications that are in there and I grabbed. All of them are just flip and reach one and try to find email addresses and starting every single person that I could and Francis was the woman's name and whenever forget her name. She emailed me back and she was like. Oh yeah this sounds cool. We can somebody write about sports. Do you know about sports and I I. I didn't know a lot but enough to just say yes two incomes. GonNa ask if I could do a thing so it was like. Oh Yeah I know a lot about sports. So of course and then she asked me to write about the Houston Texans. I wrote a season preview about about them and then later she asked me to write about a correct view. I believe he was retiring at the time or something like that. And then I use those two pieces to move on to the to the next place and then started pitching to the Houston press which was a little bit bigger a little bit more prestigious and Houston and then that was really where things sort of started to to turn because that was like a proper publication or as a woman who worked at name name Margaret Downing the editor in chief Super Super Smart newspaper person and she would not let you like right your way around anything. She was just straight up. Here's how you do this. This is how you'd be good at secures interested in all of our people who work for knowing how to do this stuff they needed to get done. Her and this guy named Chris Gray and between the two of them they were taking an active interest and like making their writers better so when I started working under them now the the real parts of the job now. I'm learning how to request information from courthouse or how to interview was subject or how to Structure Story So when I got in there and I knew it was a good spot to be. I just try to stick around as long as I could. I think I worked with them. Three Lansing mind you for about four years or so and after that time then I felt at least confident enough to pitch other places bigger places. I start pitching. Espn MTV Rolling Stone Xl Wa- Anyway. That I could find an email address I going and chasing down that way. So what were some of the first breaks that you got along that path like? What are some of the magazines? How long did it take before you got into some places where you were going to be rid working at a Houston press with his first real break? That I got because Margaret and Chris were there and it was like okay. They're gonNA teach me how to do this Outside of that the first ones where it felt like a cool thing was happening was like that too right. Espn at the time had a blog called true hoop run by Henry at it. He let me write about the spurs and then it was like on the ESPN homepage. I'll never forget it. I screen shotted and everything I remember..

"It is back your Shea Serrano himself back back down effect she was ready well it's rigs taught movies and other things have first of all to books I have no books this is my third one right so you're now you're beating Harper Lee rap one oh that's right you did on the rat book too I have too many of your books Marla boom this is a book that actually infuriates me because it's exactly the kind of book I would want to write which is it's just a lot of discussions about movies like putting characters together there from one to another taking a lot of time to talk about a League of their own which is something I just do in my spare time congrats living the life I should be living you can do it though this is like the fun part of making a book like this is this is not the the history of movie it's it's not a declaration of these are the things that you show this is just straight up it's a movie that like and we're going to have a conversation about every person can write this exact book because you're going to have a ton of different movie you've probably read the book like where's this other movie that I love you know what I'm saying everybody's different relationships with different we could just like right the entire book but with different opinions naked No I really liked the act that you ask so many different just questions about different movies and it feels like you're just having a condo with friends movies The first one I wanted open to okay let's talk about kill Oh I love kill kill one of my favorite movies I where do you stand in Tarantino up kill Bill Love I just I I'm very delayed on the movie world's because I wasn't allowed to watch movies as a kid so I've been doing catch up I was only allowed to watch an hour of TV and movies Hours on watch the first does she make it back to Kansas I really have no house rule I was raised Muslim like a staunch Muslim so I was only allowed to watch an hour like a week a week and I didn't have the wherewithal follow through to be like come back next week and fish so yeah there's there's something immediately salacious naughty anytime you get to watch a movie the credits roll but I also love about your book is that has a you know have this sparse knowledge of movies ev you said everybody could write this book but also everybody can read this burs I could pick and choose what parts I knew and like could understand I read the mean girls first and then I went back and got to learn a lot about like the godfather and all these Kinda like Mafia I've never known anything about and I can go back and watch so yeah that's the trick with doing something like this is you have to make it where somebody who hasn't washed a lot of movies can read it and it feels accessible but also somebody who lived a life in movies can read it and feel like challen on just a little bit you know what I'm saying that'd be my mistake I'd be like Cate Blanchett Oscar loosened a ninety eight if you haven't seen a real heavy editor reading shafter saying so I don't know what this says three people well Down I was interested in the idea you're kill Bill Chapter you talk about like who gets it the most aware in the worst it was interesting talking about L. driver you know getting the second most yeah and I don't know I had always thought it was Vernita like the crazy eighty as hall l. driver by the way is Daryl Hannah's character green is the Fox so the the because she still live she is still alive but I think that makes it worse in this case Bernita has to die and that's awful but if you're if you're choosing between either having to die or like living the rest of your life knowing your your nemesis has bested U. Not only do she yanked your eyeball out of your head for the second time in your life somebody yanked an eyeball out of your head like that to me was like if you have to walk into a room and you've got another patch on and everybody's like Oh and that's enough to make this this was this was blind at this point she's absolutely she has no won't happen again arteries the tongue out of her mouth she's going to keep on pulling stuff you have a section in this book where you do an exercise that I think a lot of people either they could do or want to do which is going through the Oscars by year and then picking what you have nominated or what you would have wanted to win instead what are your feelings about the Oscars in general like if I say the the phrase the Oscars to you do you like filled with rage or no no I think they're they're fun they're interesting I like to watch them I like to see
