The public believed it was a case of insanity in that homosexuality was a mental illness. One could recover from an quote so disturbed jackson to create a more compassionate and authentic version of the story so to do this. They undertook massive research. They found and interviewed former classmates and teachers from christchurch. Girls high school. They spoke with neighbors family friends. Police psychologists and even juliet's lawyer all of whom shed light on the background and context of the case even with that the main records that they sourced were pollens. Diaries where like you said. She recorded daily entries about her intense friendship with juliet and jackson even said that one hundred percent of the voice over in the movie is based on her diaries directly and the diaries were never published and her father destroyed them so interestingly he never tried to connect with either woman and he said this is another quote. We respect them. We didn't want invade their privacy. If it was me. I wouldn't want to see the movie.

"That's a special thing certainly sounds like something. We adults could use a big dose of these days in particular So we'll come back to talking about young people. And why right for them. But i would love to hear a little bit more about your personal story starting with like. What were you like as a kid. Were you talking about burgers. Were you talking about big ideas. What was life like for you you know. I was a little bit of everything. I was the kind of kid who loved along time. You know that was the kind of young person who get lost in in his room. We'll get lost in i. I love to sit in. The my mother would be in the kitchen. Doing all sorts of things and i would say a little rocking chair. Just an eye shot and just sit there and watch and you know just kind of talk and we have conversations like six five but at the same time i also grew up with a ton of friends. I was a neighborhood kid and they hood kids do neighborhood things right going and you get into trouble then you you learn the world through trial and error bouncing ideas off your peers When no adults are watching. And so i had all those things working for me and i'm grateful for it fourteen. Now you grew up in maryland right outside of dc. And you know one thing. i. I've heard you bring up before That was a source of inspiration for you was your mother and her deep belief and you like she saved all your clothes all year old sneakers everything you ever wrote. It was almost as she was documenting. Your childhood so that people would be able to look back when you achieved greatness. It's it's so strange. Bhagwan wanted on. Now she always knew that there was something the hard part for her was to allow me to go find it to go out with. That was so it's a young person. A kid it was like you can do anything you can do anything you can do it. I mean it was like every single night. You can do anything you can do anything. I you know that was. That was the thing that she laid on. But when it came time for me to fly goop right when it was time. Say hey mom. I'm going to go and be a writer. I think that all of the baggage of growing up in the nineteen fifties sixties the black woman in america that trauma sort of pushes itself to the forefront and her fear of one of her children living a life that may have been unstable financially unstable potentially emotionally unstable was enough to cause a bit of a riff a momentary rip. One thing she she made clear was the hardest part about being a parent. Is that you you raise your children not to be followers but you never take into consideration that that means that one day they won't follow you and in that moment you will have to stand on your word or you'll be made a hypocrite right and that's real and that's who we are who we were back then and what. She raised us to be understand who she was as a parent. So in twenty twenty. Hindsight i mean it all seems to make sense right. You're a bestselling author. You're the national ambassador for young people's literature but talk about that scary moment when you left to become a writer had you've been writing all along as a kid which she like well. This is what my kid is born to do. He's got go do it or was this like whoa wait. What are you going to do mash. She knew i mean. I have been writing since. I was a ten year old. By the time.

I mean it was a a redo of the nineteen seventies you know it was literally the black arts movement happening again right and we all felt this weird synergy and i was a young boy who was being in the club and who was allowed to sit in the back around all these poets around the young saul williams in a young jill. Scott and there. This kid And so my mother knew that guy was in it. And i was writing and by the time i was sixteen i so published my first book and was selling that book you know out of the trunk of my mother's car you know And at seventeen published. Another one at eight. I was sort of doing my thing. I was all of these coast as a key as a young person. Just doing my thing because she knew it was coming right. She knew that this was something that i was taking seriously and had been taken seriously since i was a ten year old but when it was time to go like i had no plan.

"The public response to the report was also divided bantam. Books published the full report and it became an immediate bestseller selling seven hundred and fifty thousand copies in the first week and one point six million copies by june of nineteen sixty eight that is an enormous number of copies of books for any book but especially for a government report. It also faced a huge backlash because of its focus on white racism and its findings related to policing beyond that though critics noted that it mirrored parts of the moynihan report it sort of framed. Single motherhood among black women is almost pat logical. In fact women were barely mentioned in the report aside from being the victims of violence or mentioned as being single mothers. Another criticism was that the future goal of the report was really envisioning quote a single society in a single american identity so in other words the report was proposing that black communities assembly with and conform to white norms which the report just took for granted as the one acceptable standard. The report also focused only on cities that had experienced some kind of civil disturbance and not on the ones that didn't so there was no examination of why those cities didn't see similar disturbances even if they had similar underlying factors at work similarly. This report was focused almost exclusively on disturbances in which civilians committing crimes were black. The chapter of the report that summarized three hundred years of us history mentioned various incidents of violence that white mobs enacted against black communities. But there was really no suggestion that violence needed a thorough investigation into its causes. And what could be done to prevent that in the future. Since johnson didn't accept this report or specifically add its recommendations to his administration's goals in his final months in office. Sometimes the kerner reports impact is summed. Up his kind of none of its recommendations wherever enacted. It is absolutely true that there was no massive build. Tried to put all of these recommendations at the play at once but over the decades some of its recommendations did come to pass through other legislation for example. This report had big focus on job training programs and the creation of new jobs. The comprehensive employment training act the ata was enacted in nineteen seventy three and tax credits were passed in the nineteen seventies and eighties that led to the creation of about seven hundred thousand new jobs. The report also called for things like more funding and power for the equal employment opportunity commission. And that did get a bigger budget. And more oversight there were also changes to policing which started long before. The report was finalized. Johnson had declared a war on crime in nineteen sixty five and had established. The commission on law enforcement and administration of justice also called the katzenbach commission whose report was delivered in nineteen sixty seven. Johnson had established an office of law enforcement assistance which became the law enforcement. Assistance administration in nineteen sixty eight and in june of that year johnson signed the omnibus crime control and safe streets act of nineteen sixty eight. So it's hard to trace a one one path from the kerner commission report to the way policing has evolved because there were so many other laws and programs already in the works before during the time that the commission was working none of its recommendations about police reform or really all that radical either but the commission's argument against the increasing militarization of police was obviously not heated at all one note about the commission's recommendations about law enforcement the commission consulted numerous members of law enforcement..

Meanwhile added an extra one point two six million copies to. It's total it's now sold nearly thirty four million copies worldwide and quote so maybe in the case of nintendo. It's a cyclical thing in terms of blockbuster titles being released or the lack thereof because for example ea beat their earnings estimates and roku saw revenue up eighty one percent year over year when it reported yesterday although it did note that streaming hours on its platform was down a whopping one billion hours quarter over quarter and pinterest missed on user growth in q two with four hundred and fifty four million monthly active users versus four hundred eighty two million which was the estimate so that even though it beat on revenue which was up one hundred and twenty-five percent year over year investors are really not happy at the implication that covert time usage surges might be over and the stock was down about twenty percent. Now i wanna be careful about cherry picking examples to fit this. Narrative uber and lift earnings for example seemed not bad and other good in cova. Companies are seeing their stocks.

Jay anson called the amityville horror true story which we all know and love published nonfiction nineteen seventy six sold more than six million copies. Film version comes out huge box office. Success let's has become famous. They later admitted it was a hoax. No yeah when concocted with the help of bush's defense lawyer william weber member him. He was like now. He's crazy he heard demonic voices so they said it wasn't ghosts. They had all these fucking psychics and mediums. Come in and i was like. There's no ghost here. It's us it's demonic possession.

Remember was trying to say that is basically using this account who by the way. They said that they came up with after a few bottles of wine. Oh my god with the lutzes that like to prove that. The house was possessed so as butch and he was not responsible basically. Yeah that's why the family was killed so ronnie still in prison. All of his appeals request to the parole board to date have been denied. And that's the amityville horror and the murder of the defeo. Family's it's so emily in the amityville horror book they talk about this red room. That's in the basement. S and how it's filled with evil and all this stuff. I was so fascinated by this.

"As like a geek like me who loves you know like little numbers and stats and stuff like that but It's it's super cool to see that and then nintendo was the as been the best selling console for the thirties. Thirtysomething montanaro He is getting a hand held. Like conrad like needles. It's pretty cool to see all these. Different companies are all of findings Success right now. I can't remember the last time. I really saw something like that. At this level you know we said it before because you know obviously anyone the the people who want to the the the people whose whose lives are only an allegiance to a specific box that they play games and like we are happy when everyone is doing well because that only increases the competition and increases each company to do more interested in things. Like it doesn't mean you need to compete on behalf of the company daily. Whoever you're rooting for will work harder to make you happy and do cool stuff right exactly. Every one of these things. Put two tiny fire underneath somebody importance ass. Yeah and that ask hot and they hop out of the seat and they make some decisions that ultimately a canon should make the consumer experience better. So yeah this this. This makes everything better for everybody yeah. I think it's something that we've seen time and again like when playstation has been on the losing side when they're not in first place in terms of sales we've seen the make a lot of really creative risks. I think like a lot of the the successes that we've seen from the. Ps four another psi generation. A doubling down on what their first party studios are grew during the ps three generation when they needed to get people over to their council because goofed tongue that launch so badly like that encourages those companies to be better and so even if playstation five is outselling xbox series like if that still doing well if the xbox is doing well and game passes doing well and switches doing well lazy will continue to want to find out ways to get people to still come to playstation yet man so i'm a frustrated with how sort of playstations been messaging stuff but i'm i'm relieved to hear that sold. Well there's there's always that chance that a system tanks and it winds up just wendling and that's it's cool. No that's incredibly stupid looking console. Sold well enough and we're going for it and that's good at the same time. I also we're seeing this gradual shift into cloud into subscription gaming. Obviously mobile's always been a big thing. It is deeply relieving. Console gaming is going strong regardless of what it is. That is so nice to hear. Because i don't like playing games on my phone and the screen is cracking it hurts. My thumbs screener cracked the screens. Actually fine but i'm too lazy to take off the screaming. That's that's probably like. I love playing playstation remotely. I'll deal with my own. Yes but i'm saying console gaming there was there were definitely moments in the league. The last fifteen years where. Some like stuffy. Ceo would get up and say something that would scare all of us deeply and make us wonder like is the future of console gaming dead. And it's it's awesome the know that it's not these are going to continue to go strong. I like having a big weird physical box tower thing underneath my tv at might look like a guy in the tuxedo. It's all about a video game console. Is that nobody can email you on a message to send you. Nobody's going to send you like a calendar. Invite unless you're some very weird indie game about calendars i must. I must tweeted this out. But like twenty. Twenty one challenge or twenty twenty challenge. Don't put slack or twitter or facebook or any of that trash on your steam deck. Just use it. The i know. I know it's a pc. Don't do it don't put any crap on your dumping it on your ps five hype with those touch pads. Quits atta here. Regardless of what apps we may be installing our steamed ex Just in terms of the games people have been playing on their. Ps also to note from the sales figures. Miles morella sold more than six point. Five million copies. They don't specify console assumed that his ps four five combined otherwise they probably would have said otherwise. Mlb the show. Twenty one is the fastest title in franchise history with more than two million copies sold across all platforms. That i love. I love this part of the press. Release so much. The game has reached more than four million players since launching on april sixteenth. How could that have happened if they only sold six million copies it's almost like it was l. Bond a subscription. I won the election by a landslide. It's almost as though dead people voting. For what i actually coast moving is something you do in soccer or football. But it's good to know that baseball could do that to. Let's see exactly you mentioned game. Pass yeah yeah. You're right that that is very fascinating. It's like we all know. It's they're like you guys would it. You made that deal. That's that's gotta be awesome for the studio. We're working on it like you know. Two million sales is tremendous or you know a a sports idol based on you know baseball but also four million people interacting with something that you just released a few months ago is is really really cool. I'm hannah can't understand how two million of those people are playing it without buying it. It's gotta be no way of knowing base in this. Wasn't this the first one. That was his cross platform at all. Yeah yeah completely yeah got. So that's that's pretty huge. I'd like yes okay And it's not even. It was only playstation xbox but i do think that deal opens it up to switch because nintendo had quote tweeted that announcement about the mlb. Making the partnership firm will be the show to be on all things so it'll probably come to switch at some point in the future as ri- right probably when we get a switch pro but anyway also mentioned from sales figures return has sold more than five hundred sixty thousand copies centralizing in april Obviously a smaller number than any of the numbers that we're.

I asked her why she wrote the book. she's written. Four books series has sold six million copies and she said. I wrote the book that i needed to read. The book she had written had not been written yet. I think you may have. You may not be original. Venture may be creative tight. But you're you're big idea. Might be the trust on somebody else's idea you don't have to be original veteran. Never had an original off in my entire life. I'm an aggregate here. I'm a twister most of all my content of books Quite well are just taking somebody else's idea giving them credit for it but then twisting it forming it in a way that works for me works for countless thousands of others that didn't resonate with idea the wrestling with this. Twist on that idea. So i would say to anybody who's listening. Don't let anybody tell you not to do something if you found value in it odds are thousands and thousands if not millions of others.

The movie says. Don't go see it and then gives away the revelation third act. That brad pitt net The same person actually intentionally ruins the movie and everybody goes. That's about that but that's how dark it was it. It flips ten years after the new york times rates a piece and says it's the defining colt movie of our time. He ever come back in and change your within a year. Nobody cared what rosie thought. the dvd's sold six million copies in its first decade and it just it it climbed up re watchable mountain pretty quickly I gotta say the defining cult movie of our time. Is this just a really expensive cult. Movie 'cause they spent like almost sixty million dollars on it but do you think of this as a cult movie or a big budget studio movie. movie i think the dark and way too fucked up to be like what were they trying to sell. You hear like what was the. This is new. Hollywood ideas with blockbuster filmmaking jobs so it's like it's got that sensibility of a late seventies movie. And that's probably the reason. Why guys like fisher and norton and pit wanted to make movies in the first places. Those scorsese and coppola and altman movies from that era anyway but it's shot like an aerosmith video from time very so. It just looks outrageous. Because fincher just can't make something that doesn't have that kind of texture and depth and he so he had a bad experience with fox searchlight with alien three. Didn't want to do another movie with them. and basically it's like. I'm only doing this if we're actually spending real money on it. So he ends baking. How much of this movie costs. Let's see a habit sixty three billion dollar budget to make a cult movie but he has two major stars. It's like one of those that weird territory where from ninety four to ninety nine where things felt like. They were caught movies but they are independent movies. But they really weren't pulp. Fiction was allegedly and independent movie. But it had you know eight truly famous people in one of the best directors that generation norton in pit quickly. Could you want to talk about.

Thank you so much for making the time. Today are welcome marie. i'm. I'm so excited to be with you and to experience what you've been doing so wonderfully for so many people for so long. Let's get started. I want to go back to a time in your life is actually i think a pretty challenging time after you served in vietnam and you shared in the book which is wonderful universal human by the way that you were avoiding pain in some destructive ways that it was around drugs and sex addiction. I'm wondering if you can take us back to that time. And share a bit about what you were feeling and experiencing and what was that moment that helped you begin to turn her life around. It wasn't a single moment marie. It was an incremental process. But there were some good things in it that i remember. And that time you're talking about i was living in san francisco and i was addicted to sex. I was so enamored with myself without realizing it. All how much pain. I was in Drugs women motorcycles We're all a part of of being in san francisco. And i was invited to a meeting. Physicists at the lawrence berkeley laboratory and i accepted immediately. And i was amazed by what i heard them discussing the question. Are we creating. The reality were experiencing. Well that's the kind of question that i discussed with friends in coffee shops in north beach. But these were some of the most renowned physicist in the world and they were asking that question for real. I got so excited about that meeting. And i asked him if i could come back again on the following friday and they said yes. They're very gracious. And i started reading i. I went back. And i felt as though i'd had three cups of cappuccino and it was sparking off my fingertips but i couldn't explain why i was so excited so i started reading and i went back again. Read more went back again. And i realized that i wanted to share what i was learning on a silver platter for people who were none. Scientists like me liberal arts majors like me who couldn't do handy mathematics like me and i did. I wrote this book called the dancing wuli masters an overview of the new physics. Now while i was writing this. I started out following an outline for each chapter that i created but in each case age chapter i left the outline behind because the energy lead meals were and the energy put so much more exciting than they outline was after six months or so. I began to realize that these chapters fit together beautifully. And i didn't do it because i discarded the outlines. So how'd that happen. And i began to realize that. I'm not writing this alone. This doesn't mean i'm channel. I wish it were that easy. Actually known but i imagine for some people they sit at. The keyboard in book comes out but it wasn't that way for me and it isn't but i realized that i'm not writing alone because it's not possible to be alone. Everyone every every co creation every creation is a co creation with you and with your physical guides and teachers and i was a. This was a new experience to me. I ask a friend of mine. Who was a union psychoanalyst. About what i was doing. And she said oh. Leave that alone gear. You don't know what you're getting into. I knew what i was getting into. And i wanted more of it. What did she mean by that did you. Did she just not agree with that perspective. Or what did she mean by. You don't know what you're getting into. I can't speak for her. And i'm not a union analyst but i think what she meant is there's lots of scary things in your unconscious and beyond your consciousness and you don't wanna timber with it. I didn't i didn't agree with that. Perception didn't agree with her recommendation. At all i decided that i was going to live my life the way this book was being written which was spontaneously joyfully intelligently and to a certain extent. I've accomplished that. I'm very happy about it. So this was my first experience of non-physical reality. It was the first experience of non-physical reality. That i recognized as that when i was at harvard. My grandmother died and she was my favorite. I think i was her favorite too. I used to stay with her in kansas city. And we'd spend nights together in her apartment and we'd be lying side-by-side on twin beds holding hands and talking about gossiping about the family. So that's how tight we were and she would take me to this restaurant in this beautiful large building. She was living in and we'd have dinner and afterwards we walk through the lobby and it would be a sea of grey hair. And she'd say. Gary you remember mr mental stein my son and then she say gary you remember mrs goldstein. I say yes. And if i didn't shake my head and say yes. She take my hand which she was holding and she jerked down like that. They say well when i was at her funeral. The rabbi was speaking to is audience in front of him and the family was in an alcove on his right looking up at a closed circuit monitor and were seeing him from the side and also as he looked as he addressed the audience in front of him. In those days murray closed circuit. Tv was completely novel some novel and made me laugh and as soon as i started to laugh. Gremaldi be jerked my hand down and said she didn't want me disrupting her funeral. She wanted to listen. I never told my folks that. Because i knew that they wouldn't understand it. Think that high resolution meeting in the deep grief that they were experiencing. But.

"Of it. I sort of thought. Can i really scale just being the light coming. Dropped some bombs with me while we're journaling lady like is that something that i could stick just with that but yeah i mean you know at the end of the day. It's just that like. I can always come up some reason. Why a will this is what somebody's going to say about this and that'll stop me. You know like if i it's just the same old story than i just. I just kinda stopped myself and let myself instead of just jumping in his. This is what it is. I really encourage you to free yourself from those thoughts. Stop giving them so much power and just be like. This is what i'm doing and literally you could put it out there today. You say like this sunday night you know. I'm doing things see if six women come. It doesn't matter if it's four women. It doesn't matter who comes were gathering together. We're doing this thing and like prepare a few prompts. Give them a chance to talk about some things. Give them you know. Say what does this make you. Think of this line you know. When was the last time you felt like saying this to someone who was in. What would you have actually said if you could just say what you really wanted to say. What is a hell. Yes that you feel like you did this week. What can you congratulate yourself for. Have fun with it. Like you see how quickly i can be creative and i can just make up stuff for each of your businesses. You know why. Just because i'm not worried ever about being a student like we did. These pop up workshops to convert last week. And i left the week before melissa's like i'm gonna write up a whole thing for you on the confidence and i'm like i'll figure out what the confidence is when i show up like i don't know it doesn't matter like you could call it whatever you want. It's going to be these up and this step it's like it's this you know. This is the step. So then i kind of like made sense of what melissa wrote so beautifully and i was like okay. Here's what she meant. What is the confidence code. Kathy can you please crack for me. Yeah i was just gonna say amanda you said Do i wanna be like the f-bomb lady forever like can i take that forever. In that is one of the things that stops all of our cans potentially stopped all of us in our taxes. Joy wanna do this thing for the rest of eternity. The answer is you don't have to like what if you had five classes where you are all about you know right now. The f. bombs on all the things and you are the lady who swore in we're irreverent and then there's a word that's like actually real word called rebrand pit it like for a reason because people do it literally all the time. You don't want to do that stuff anymore. Cool go do something else like. There is nothing that holds you on two one decision forever. You are not married to this. We just want all of you guys to get in the practice of putting something out there in charging for it. Do you like it. did they like it. You wanna keep on doing that. Washington repeat to something needs to be changed but the more you are in your head about like the could this be thing actually really grow How will you ever know because you're not doing anything that right so just like happy said tonight try it. Maybe maybe three people show up. That would be amazing and you can see. Did you like it was fun. do you wanna do it again. Great let's keep ongoing and then when you decide. I think i'm done with this. I think this thing that it season you can choose something different. You're not stuck to any the offer so then offer should still be the one like the single workshop. Well that the workshop can actually be your marketing event. You can hold the workshop for free and at the end of it if people have a good time which they will then you can say my offer now at the end of this night is if you enroll by tomorrow night. I'm doing a series of six of these in a row for make it up one hundred ninety eight dollars. It doesn't matter you can always pivot prices. But that's how simple it is just start. Start getting a core group of people who know what this is who like what it is and then we rinse and repeat and we rinse and repeat in the power of rinsing and repeating one offer. I mean we have done made to do this now four times in just four times you guys. This was last year in january. We launched for the first time we had three hundred and thirty people sign up the second time we had like five hundred people then six hundred than nine hundred few. Just keep saying this is what this is and this is this four and this isn't a dot is so powerful and we just don't do that. We're not really all in enough. You know we have to be all in and then be excited so then moving from that offer. Let's say you're going to do this on sunday. Let's say you're going to do it every for the next six weeks. Let's say you're going to do it. Not sunday but two weeks from now on between now and then get people excited and you're going to do it once a month for three months to get people excited about it. So then what do you post. Every day you start posting a word like no period and inner captured. like noah's a full sentence. you know that you can say no when someone invites you to a party. You can just say no without an explanation. Do you know that you can say no to calling someone back. Do you know that whatever it is and like this. Fill in the blank. You know whatever's give people prompts actually in your captions and and and start interacting with people and start telling stories in your emails about like. I wish i could go back in time and say this. But here's what i actually said. And how many of you can relate to this reply. With what word is your favorite choice word. When someone says this or this to you mark manson was on my show and he said that the subtle art of not giving enough. You know this book. That was not the title of the book. The title was something totally different and his publisher. Said if you put the subtle art of not giving an f. as your title you will sell a million copies. Sold six million copies. And it's just something about it gives people permission to let go right and to not take it so seriously and people love that and jensen sierras of the same thing like they called it. You are a bad ass and that's why it sold so many copies because people don't want to look at self help in this various is way they wanna have more fun with it and you're the best person to do this. Get harder than an ass to me. That's all it is. You have so many good ideas in the cia amandas there so many people saying. Why don't you do this for teachers. Teachers who are at the end of their rope at the end of the worst school year. And you're a teacher so you have an into that whole like huge network of people. Do you want to come here. Swear you can't do it in front of your kids. Come on let's go. Let's do you feel now. I feel i feel like i can see what that block is.

"six million copies" Discussed on Alt.Pop.Repeat
"Start This is what's going to happen This is actually for anybody. Who's tune into the show for the first time. Second exploration of hip hop through time. And we're doing several of these shows number two. It's so nice we had to do it twice. And the first series like the first season we interviewed dmc from run dmc and we talked the whole genre of new school hip hop and what it was to come up from the streets and right onto mtv and the influence that had on whole generation throughout the eighties. Now weeded our interview with coolio. And we're in a whole new phase which is like the phase immediately after new school. Which is kind of like. We're in the nineties. Hip hop eric's we are and it's different right so well. Yeah it's developed and evolved and it's become more mainstream so we have these two different genres that are that are happening. You've got this new school music. The stirred in the eighties. And then you're moving into this gangster area. That's going into the nineties. But now when we look at mainstream that was happening within the nineties what we realize is that radio was doing something very different than what the streets who's doing so when i say that we have people like. Nwa we'd run dmc public enemy With all these different hip. Hop duos in groups and trios that were coming out with music. That was a little bit different a little more streets along begin to park where like a huge time. That became a little more controversial within the thug. Kind of hip hip hop gangster era but radio is doing something different. Radio was only playing. Light hip hop. So that's the difference between what was happening from the streets from hip hop culture. So then what was going mainstream. So when i say that things are popping at that time were dj jazzy jeff. Fresh prince of bel-air kid. Play all these really really late. Hip hop artists were playing on the radio and a lot of these other mainstream artists. That were doing a lot of gangster. Rob were not so. There was a little bit of this prejudice that was going on between the hip hop culture. That's fair. I totally agree with that. Because i mean the if i'm thinking back my own experiences in the nineties for sure they were not playing harder hop on the radio during that period which It's interesting because there's so many different parts to it when you're dealing with hip hop when we're going into the nineties was like they consider it. They the scholars the scholars and the gentlemen of the time they consider it being the golden age of hip hop the what was emerging from a period of the late eighties. The mid to late nineties was a very influential period for the development of the genre. However wha how was developing was exac ler saying it wasn't necessarily happening on account of the radio which i think this is an ongoing and consistent trend with hip hop like radio and mainstream media is trying to control how the world interprets hip hop bye controlling it by having uber light very easy listening hip hop but meanwhile out in the world. The artists are producing something. That sounds very different. And there's a whole culture and there's a whole art. That's around it. And i mean like the ninety s and had a whole like what was coming out was this afro-centric black nationalist raw rap that was really dominant in addition to songs about people's experiences living in marginalized communities and aka ghettos. Right we. yeah you're getting the nwa. Obviously one of the most iconic hip hop groups coming out and making points on things that were happening with them in the hip hop society but radio wasn't really picking that up. They're playing all the light like the light hip hop tour example. Coolio is one of them. Coolio is a little different. Because coolio was the first person and gangster's paradise was one of those really pivotal times that brought and really did around the world brought hip hop into mainstream within the nineties but throughout the world over he sold over six million copies of gangster's paradise it went to billboard used first artists that we were saying in the interview that traveled internationally was also the first hip hop artist to to ever really bring out this gospel side of hip hop. That's never happened before that was into the mainstream radio. So the one thing about coolio that. I that i love. I love that tom personally. Because that was like one of my go-to tracks. When i was younger. He was showing this side. That was really different. He's kind of showing both sides. He was doing stuff that was mainstream but he was talking about something that was real that was happening in the streets in that was with gangsters and his actual experiences rather than light hip hop but he was using gospel as part of that to push through and he also covered stevie wonder's but we talk about in the interview. You know he. He sampled some stevie systems and stevie wonder which is amazing so he was the first person to ever really bring a night. Collab- together and that's why. I find it a little bit different than something like you know. We look at will smith right and hugh how he did his staff with you know. Dj jazzy jazzy. Jeff like it. It's very different sound but it also has a really true street element to it as well. Yeah one hundred percent. I again like i agree with you. Think it's the nice thing is that we both have our own experiences with age. Hip hop during this period was a formative music. That was ligaments influential. Like everybody listened to hip hop. And i was really interesting like the most pivotal year for hip hop was nineteen ninety. Six and nineteen hundred. Ninety six like everything was pop in. I was like the best. If you ask anyone there like this was the best year hip pop. You had to procure biggie. Had nauseam had jay z and was coming up everybody that you know all your favorite songs. Everybody was coming up during this period. The nineties were eighties. Were very influential in introducing us to the genre and the nineties were really influential for developing genre and like that's were coolio so importantly he created like you said he had the gospel motifs in a song and created a very mainstream Taste of like poetry from the street like this was his life. And this is what we're experiencing it. And i think that needs to really be appreciated and then also who else was coming up in the nineties like out of seventy influential songs of that entire period have gluten clan cream. Get the money like that bills. Y'all and they were. They revolutionized the completely flipped the game. You know these group of these guys from what staten island may came forward and they they completely flipped up what we knew about rap. Nineteen ninety-three lift. We'll go back to one thousand nine second west coast rap and it's summertime. Sounds were filling. The airwaves like radio was playing songs. That people could get behind. Radio's playing songs that weren't necessarily controversial. And then you have like tang clan coming out with.
"six million copies" Discussed on Pantheon
"Eddie van halen drew. I was aimed. David lee roth. There's a story there. I absolutely event and also opened for black sabbath on some european dates that year. The ozzy osbourne era of that band was starting to come to a close and their performances were reportedly being inhibited. Pretty badly by drugs and alcohol. They've had a very bad experience on their previous tour as they brought Along a young from down under named ac dc to for them and actually had trouble following. They were so good. So ozzy apparently instructed sabah's booking agency to quote get some la bar band to open for them and he did and of course. That band was van. Halen hoops the members of sabbath showed up to catch the tail end of their opening. Act at sheffield city hall. They arrived just in time to see. Eddie perform eruption quote was that they're going that was incredible and then it vanished and we were just too stunned to speak. Ozzie said tony. Reaction bloody hail. Or i'm probably or probably bo hey l. l. You just need to stop doing any kind of tax. I'm sorry i gave you. I gave you a flower and skip the trying to do ozzy okay. I mean i'll to do ozzy shadow. British laws committed. A ozzy admitted that it was nearly an impossible to follow when the tour reached. London only convinced his buddy. Brian may to come check out the new guitar phenom. The pair of us watched eighty van. Halen do the stuff and it was just glorious almost two glorious taking in to see this guy romping around guitar kit just running and taking the places undreamed of there hadn't been anything so shocking sits hindriks they said which minnesota brian may compares you to jimi hendrix. Probably doing pretty good around a dr. Brian may dr ryan by. It is interesting and quite telling that eddie was not enjoying the ride. This point mug said that eighty told him on a tour. Stop in paris quote. I want to go back to la. I don't wanna do this anymore. Fm dave that asshole he wants to be a rockstar. I don't want to be a rock star. I hate this bullshit. Monk apparently talked him off the figurative ledge by telling him that a lot of people were counting on him and reminded him that success would allow him to buy his parents house. so that's how he basically kept eighty from leaving at this point he says now. Those shows were all powered by copious amounts of not only alcohol southern comfort vodka and malt liquor. Were the beverages of choice for the brothers at this point. Oh my but also cocaine yeah and there. It is cookie us. Managers apparently grease the palms of local law. Enforcement officers on tour stops to look the other way not shock the band actually coined a code word for the substance that being krill round they called cocaine. Krill issued saying it was during this tour. That van halen pulled off one of its most elaborate and brilliant stunts black sabbath and boston were playing in an event called summer fest in anaheim in september that would also feature a fellow named sammy hagar by the way thank you it was a it was a huge show with an audience. A fifty six thousand people van halen was opening and they were determined to steal the show with more than just a performance when it came time for them to take the stage and announcer said from out of the sky. Van halen is coming into the stadium. At that point fans noticed four parachutists heading into the stadium looking that they were going to land on the stage at the last minute maneuver to an area just outside the state moments later van. Halen emerged to thunderous ovation. They tossed off their parachute. Gear took the stage and launched into on fire. Initially van halen management climate. The band had spent months practicing stop but quite obviously eighty eight. Alex michael did not jump out of an airplane rights british. Your warner bros. Wasn't going to allow to happen. No way yeah it. It wasn't that for experienced parachutists wearing leagues. The ban was hiding in a van outside the stadium wearing parachute get ups now. They did have a few spinal tap ish moments on the road including at one point having all of their equipment shipped to chicago when they were booked to play a huge festival in texas in play. But i but not. The band's chicago not the van chicago chicago city of garda. Keep up abusing bands of the nineteen seventies and eighties. I mean why not go for chicago chicago. They're sure they ended up having to borrow equipment for that shushed briefly. Fronted for the motor city madman ted. Nugent really his reaction to eighty was pretty much. What every other guitar was quote. This kid started playing shit. I'd never heard before now is like oh i think i'm a bad him ever but there might be an element of me sitting on my bad. Mfn laurels. he was unbelievable. He was one of those rare gifted musical warriors. That could literally kick the shit out of his guitar with his seat and somehow make melodic musical and rhythmic not needed. That's the smartest thing you've ever said. So he told me he. If you can't tell. I don't like ted nugent. Okay i think the never true a word spoken than wanguo tangos. What's interesting. He's basically flooring every major guitar player he meets along the way. I mean yes you ever was. He ever like just a genuine. This was he ever in a room with stevie ray vaughan. I don't know that that would be fascinating. The earth spin off. It's access to my knowledge. So i don't feel i if you put him in stevie in the same room the world might actually explode him and yet. But you're right. Will when you have people like tony me and tim And brian may lauding. You got. I've never heard anything like this. That does pretty what that does speak. Volumes hundred percent does yeah. I'll tell van halen played one hundred seventy four dates in ten months. Oh not even her Than a year and ten months that included one hundred and twenty four. us dates to shows in canada. Thirty nine in europe and nine in japan should just a week after wrapping up the tour that were back in the studio to record their second album using songs that they'd already demo previously van halen to was completed in one week you released in syria van halen to which which is freaking masterpiece. In my opinion they knocked it out in a week. I've had hugs of meat that have taken longer to pass through my body. Yes i've had hopes of mate stuck in my teeth for a week to my my top three albums yes it was. It was my second right when people heard our our album racking in the last episode released in march of nineteen seventy-nine it went gold or platinum in four countries in the sold more than six million copies tonight in a retrospective review. Erwan gave it four out of five stars noting. It was a bit lighter and funnier than the first record but contains quote some of the grandest hard rock ever made erase number six on the us billboard album chart and it contained the second top forty hit which. We're gonna get to a just a little bit. But i want to open with something different now to the extent that van halen has many date cuts since almost all songs are very well known continued to get a lot of recurrent airplay. This album contains one of my absolute favorites. In fact this is one of my favorite van. Halen songs period. I i love the song. So we're gonna listen to it now. This is an a banging from van halen to call. D o a.

"So over the history of this show spending eight years more than five hundred guests. Two years filming on location and crew, and now more than six years is a podcast. I have been asked one question over and over and over. So who's your favorite guest so when you do what I do, you learn quickly to dodge the answer to that question for one. You can't win for any name. He dare to offer your simultaneously snubbing hundreds, and if I'm blessed to keep doing this long enough thousands of other people, but more importantly. If you're really paying attention, truthfully, there is no such thing as a favorite guest. Guest I don't do this to be entertained or to fall in love or to make new friends or to have favorites I do because I love doing it, and because it's a bit like my living laboratory, it's it's not about who I liked best, but rather who I have learned from WHO has left changed and on that level would have come to believe as you learn something if you allow yourself to remain open from every single person. As it is on screen. Has It is in front of a Mike in Studio on the? So it is in life. But as I sit here today. Having just learned of the passing of a man who has become as our producer, Lindsay often reminds me. The single most referenced guest by me. In the history of the show Milton Glaser. I can admit to one truth over the same span of time much as I have been profoundly inspired and humbled and awakened, and learn more than any book or school or course of study has taught me. There have been very few guests. Who when they walked out. The door left me thinking to myself. I live their life. Milton glaser was at the top of this very short list born and raised in the Bronx. He discovered what would become his life's work, and never in his eighty five or so years of. Building on that veered from it to make things that move people those are the words he shared with me. As soon as These words were offered in that classic Glazer Rasp. I can feel every cell in my body. Come alive with resonance me, too. I felt me to. My whole body just saying with recognition and resonance. Me To Milton me to. Glazer's list of accomplishments in the world of design and media and education, the stuff of legends launching a design agency push pin studios in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four with a bunch of friends who he graduated, Cooper Union with he would change the face of commercial illustration of art and design that famed Iheart. Logo Did that a tribute to the city. He loved so fiercely at a time when it was on the verge of bankruptcy of crumbling underneath him, Glazer wanted to do his part to help people. Re Imagine it to see the way he knew it to be the way it was in his heart, which probably explains why he was also a founder of York magazine that iconic Bob Dylan Rainbow Hair poster with more than six million copies in print glazer again.
