"skate park" Discussed on The Christian O’Connell Show

"What was the first big live music show you ever saw? Already had a great one then that Patsy took it to Patsy's daughter Audie on Friday scene Dua Lipa as her first one, which is pretty amazing. What was it for you, Joe? So before I went to the big day out which was the first huge bands I saw, I went to the Alton roller rink to a punk show to see scar band area 7 and I remember rocking up and my mom dropping me off and everybody else was dressed as punks like mohawks. Tattered shirts, leather jackets and I was in a mambo shirt and parachute pants. Patsy, what was it for you? Aw, do you know what? It was probably when I was working for 3D in the country we went to rock a longer, which was a thing at Yara wonga every year, which, you know, in the country, not many shows came in the country to the country in the late 80s, and it was Jimmy Barnes. And boom crash opera. I thought that must have been amazing. Yeah, it was awesome. The first proper concept I ever went to was actually in excess. I was 16 and like I was saying earlier, just Michael Hutchinson as well. They were brilliant live band. It says were amazing, but he was a proper. He first frontman saw and he had leather trousers on. He was swinging from a vodka bottle. I still raise one of the coolest things I've ever saw. A wide eyed 16 year old my friend and I traveled up to the big smoke to London. So don't actually live in London. And it was such an exciting time just to see an actual big rock and roll band. And they were incredible. On a brighter note. You were listening to the Christian O'Connell show podcast. 16 years ago last week I saw Billy Joel as a 15 year old at the now demolished bowes were dome in Perth, easily the youngest there, got my tickets, can't wait to see him again in a couple of weeks time. Yeah, he's at the ERG's not long now. Thank you very much, Daniel. It's got to Ariana. Good morning. Hello? Hello? Hello there. Okay, so what was the first live show you ever saw? The first live show I ever saw was when I was 7. It was 2013 and mom took me to see kiss Mötley Crüe and Finn Eddie had stadium. Wow, that's an amazing three great bands to see there and you were very young. Yeah. Do you remember much from it? Yeah, I do. I remember it being very, very loud and plugs in my ears and I went and holding and I was getting very frustrated and we had seats and floor tickets and I remember dragging mom up and down the states when I wanted to sit down and then going, oh yeah, no, let's go on the floor and then we'd go on the floor and then I'd go back up to the states and she was very annoyed with me. And you still go and see shows with mom now? Yeah, we still go up we just saw kiss three times when they came in August. We got four tickets and then we were able to make them and get a photo with them as well. You two are amazing. What a great double act you are. Yeah, it's just mom and I are so pretty pretty close. Oh, that's so lovely to hear and that you still got that joint passion together a live music. So what's the next show you'd be seen together? We don't have tickets for anything at the moment I don't think. So I've got a pair of tickets. Do you want to go and see Rod Stewart live? Rod Stewart live is amazing. I was just talking to mom about this the other day yesterday. I would love to go and see Rod Stewart. I've got pair of Rod Stewart, 'cause I'm going to give them to you right now. Double pass a go and see what rod laver arena in March next year, take mom, have a great time on us. Oh my God, thank you so much, Christian. That's all right. Thanks for calling.

The old how are you? Yeah, we're good. So what was the first live show you ever saw? I went to see area 7 at the local Franklin skate park back in 90 something many, many millions you guys. So you're a fan like Jackie boy. Yeah, I was back in the day. My mom dropped me off and she made this polo shirt and I said, nah, top ring so I broke orientation. One of the ways like a black rotation and got changed before winning in the concert and when I left jumped in the car with mom and I go mom, we got a Mac and she said, no, she can sandwiches in the cotton bite. Where's the shit? I said, what shit? On the poll you brought. Oh shivers, mom. In the back in the cut, back in the constitution, I changed in the 12. I don't know whether she had done, I heard about how much it was on special. I was a nice shirt. 20 something years later, I still hear that that really should. I love the fact that you try to be a secret closet punk away from your mom, that's amazing. And I Clark Kent Superman not you getting changed in a phone box coming out emo Superman. Anthony, that's a great one. Thank you very much, she called me. I have a good day. Let's go to Adam. Good morning, Adam. Good morning, guys. How are you all? Yeah, we're good. I hope you had a great weekend at him. What was the first large show you ever saw? Well, I feel very fortunate to say this. I got to see Nirvana live at the palace back in 91. So wow, that's incredible. 1991, I saw them in 92. How old were you? I was 15. My aunt was friends with somebody that had something to do with the palace back in the day. So we were very fortunate in the sense that we got a free pass to go and see them and it was just believe me away. It was the greatest thing I've ever seen in my entire life. I've actually walked out that key, thinking to myself, I actually want to be a musician. So yeah, it was amazing. Yeah, what an experience to see a band like that 9. So 91 was probably just got the cast before they really sort of became global stars. Yeah, they sort of, I think it was sort of around the never mind. So I had the cassette, but they played a whole bunch of other material that I hadn't actually heard yet, but when the curtain was just all pitch black and you could just make out this silhouette curtain was taking the last few drags and the cigarette and then they just launched into aneurysm. And then when the drums kicked in from Dave Grohl, all these psychedelic lights behind them just went nuts and we were on the balcony. So there's just a whole seat people just moshing and going insane as if I was just blown away. It's actually giving me goosebumps just imagining the scene you just painted there so vividly, it was amazing how much you still remember of it. I was one of those turning points in my life Christian and I'm Kurt Cobain such a humble person. You just had this presence about, you didn't have to do anything. It wasn't over contrived. So let me just strum this guitar and sang. I just, I don't know, just bring my mind and amazing lyricists like lyrics just really bleed their way back in the day. So yeah. It's an amazing and it's still doing live music now. You say that it's sort of made you want to be getting a band. Do you still do that now? Occasionally, yeah, my old band has actually been around for 25 years. So they're actually doing a reunion show later this year, but I'm going to get up into a couple of songs. Frankenbach. Frankenbach. Right. It's awesome. And where's the reunion show going to be? Give it a plug. Okay, thanks. It's going to be at the total December 10. A couple of weeks ago. In fact, you're going up against Billy Joel. Billy Joel. Billy is going to look out our empty seats and go beauty frankenburg. He holds 300 people for that show. The reunion had to be tonight. The only show doing in Australia. And if you know what we're giving Billie Joel tickets away in the last week of the show, for everyone who loses, we should send them to Franklin. No, we give them a choice. Pretty Joel or frankenbach. Adam, great story. Thank you very much for taking us there, mate. Really, really amazing stuff. Thank you.

"In the village of tewa, Arizona, kids are dropping in on the halfpipe at a new skate park. It's all thanks to Quinton nasino and his friends. There wasn't really any place to skate down here. Most of the surrounding areas is just dirt and rocks. So when the pandemic began and outdoor activity took on new life, the teens got together to start what they called skate two 64. The highway two 64s what goes through all the hopi reservation. The idea to build a safe space for skaters regardless of age or skill. We saw a whole bunch of skaters that were just like skating on those little makeshift parks, you know, at the basketball courts or on the road or at hospitals or schools, just anywhere they had concrete pretty much. So we thought it would be a good idea to bring a skate park out to hopi just because we didn't want anybody getting hurt or in trouble, getting into places they shouldn't be trying to skate. 17 year old Quinton got the idea after he started skating two years ago, on a trip through Navajo country he saw other kids with a better skating scene. There's some tribes around Phoenix too who have gotten some pretty good parks. Whenever I would go to that part of the country, I would see their skate parks and then I would come back to my reservation, then there would be nothing here. I thought that was kind of unfair. The hopi community rallied behind the teens, and with fundraisers sponsorships and merchandise sales, they finally had enough money to build their park and fulfill a dream to bring positive change to the hopi community.

"Brian bennett. When president joe biden stood in front of the iconic green marble and gold foil backdrop to address the united nations general assembly in new york on september twenty first. He declared that the us had ended twenty years of conflict in afghanistan and opened a new era of what he called relentless diplomacy of using the power of our development aid to invest in new ways of lifting people up around the world. That new era has gotten off to a rocky start. Afghanistan desperately needs u s and international development aid but providing aid to the country while the taliban is in control raises concerns about how the money will be used and whether it will prop up a brutal regime the us has long criticized and until recently fought against the biden administration is moving forward with funding aid for afghanistan bowing to deliver sixty four million dollars in new aid to afghanistan through the un and aid organizations but at the same time. It's frozen some seven billion dollars of afghanistan central bank reserves held by the federal reserve bank of new york until the taliban shows it will abide by commitments to the us government and some taliban leaders are designated global terrorists and subject to sanctions like afghanistan's new interior minister in charge of police and security series. Udine connie who is on the fbi's most wanted list with few options. Since it's haphazard withdrawal the us is caught wanting to provide humanitarian aid assistance to the nation citizens without supporting the taliban which secretary of state anthony blinken called the defacto government of afghanistan before the house foreign affairs committee on september thirteenth. It's a dilemma. Because you do want to provide lifesaving critical. Assistance says akil shah an expert on south asia at the carnegie endowment for international peace but with the taliban controlling the banking system. And the levers of government. How do you engage them. Without legitimizing them he asks the biden administration is hoping the spigot of assistance will save lives and that the possibility of unlocking billions in the country's foreign exchange reserves will give the us leverage for influencing the taliban to moderate its suppression of freedoms and of women and prevent terrorists from using afghanistan to plot attacks against the us. The humanitarian assistance funds are intended to quote meet critical health and nutrition needs as well as to address the protection concerns of women children and minorities to help more children including girls go back to school. Blinken said speaking before the senate foreign relations committee on september fourteenth to keep the funds for humanitarian assistance from being misused by the taliban the biden administration is sending them directly to independent organizations like the un and international aid organizations on the ground in afghanistan with an emphasis on saving lives from hunger and continuing ongoing cova nineteen and polio vaccination campaigns the un says. It needs six hundred six million dollars for the remainder of this year to help eleven million afghans that need food medical assistance shelter and other needs the biden administration is working to keep humanitarian assistance flowing to afghanistan while denying major financial assets to the taliban all us funds are directed to closely vetted local and international partners on the ground with experience operating in complex environments. Such as afghanistan says a senior administration official. The taliban is still sanctioned as a quote specially designated global terrorist and one hundred thirty taliban related officials and entities are still subject to the un's nineteen eighty eight sanctions regime on august. Twenty fifth eleven days after kabul fell into taliban hands the us treasuries office of foreign assets control issued a specific license authorizing financial transactions needed to get.

"Bay who i am but all in one our guests rather than being separated between the box. The that sort of extended video read Showed the build process and everything. And i mean one thing cutting cutting wilco diabet- like mountain biking in what you're doing especially is also shows often showcases the building and like the rewards get from building cool shit whereas bmx is sort of the buildings a little bit more hidden and like yankee dappling darla skate park got everything handed to them in the plant. They're not going out and building whereas mountain biking celebrating. Diy culture a bit more and even like now during lockdown a my area which is sort of in a western sitting like. I'm five cash from the city. Like i'm going on the on monday morning. Dog walkers gonna and i'm noticing middle mountain bike kids cobwebs and shit and like root jobs and like bmx. Kids not doing that. Yeah in the city but like and mountain biking really good job especially i mean your video especially like sort of showing like drawn fan and you'll have fun you know and like video. It's that's killer. I think that's what it's all about. It's like you wanna you wanna ride what you create. And i think that was something that i really wanted to show like. A kind of didn't work out well but it worked out. Well that i had that crashed in the video because it was like and i wanted to make sure that the echo put in the video because showers what happens in a process like that a lot of the time when you do see a bill that drawing clip so like. I don't know some auty shots of the bill. But they actually shark kids or anyone. I guess what it actually takes. Also achievable it is i guess. 'cause without kind of behind the scenes you get to say like that of normal dudes building shit in the woods like it's nothing special. We'd like obviously we have the diggers and stuff which is an achievable for a lot of people but it was like seven. Grand is a pretty achievable budget when you think of how much any parents spends on a pool so the backyard or tennis court or are like they they buy some sort of apply sessions. Like a thousand dollars. I like the end of the day. Seven grand is in that much compared to what they will spend on a household autumn For that kids. Strong up. So i think it was really cold Stark sat there was seven grand. That's what a tax base. Glenn i really yeah starks Israel as well. Because i think that the testing side of things is definitely a hidden part on a lotta videos. Glory at the end and say what the ride is actually spent unless you're friends with them or unite like you don't really say that like and that. Yeah that really hurt actually look like it.

"Any. he was so active. I said he was in doing flag football basketball baseball. He told me. I mean this was just a couple of months ago and looking back i i remember this happening. He was you know at the end of baseball season right before everything got shut down for the for covet. It and he he wouldn't slide into base and everybody kept yelling on him. Crowe slide slide. You know little boys. That's their favorite dirt. Yeah and saliva debase. Even if the balls twenty feet away their sliding about base totally and he wouldn't slide and in one time he sled and then he went limping limping back when he got out and he told me he said yom. I remember baseball. Everyone yelling at me to slide and i. I didn't wanna do it. Because i was afraid it would hurt my leg and i had no idea for so long. He was protecting his leg. So there was that there was flag football Not tackle but one of the kids on the team little brother who we all know and love very much he's husky little guy and he tackled crew hard and you know he was just you know younger and goofy and we just in his dad even said later like i can't believe that didn't break his leg and then you know the time he was at the skate park dropping those balls you know the steep ones it. Was you know they have like ten different sizes and of course you know these boys they want to go down the steepest one. Yeah so he told me mom. I dropped the ten today. Rain right and crowd. Oh my goodness all. Nothing made me more nervous than sending him there and anyway he. He told me this was after his diagnosis. He says you know mom. There is one time. I was at the top. I think it was the nine or ten so it was one of the big ones. 'cause they all go all the way down to one and he said you know i thought it was my turn so i just went over the edge an right as i went over i saw that were two other kids going and i went all now. We're gonna crash crash and he's like an but we didn't like i don't know how he didn't mom but we didn't crash thought. Wow there's another miracle we didn't even we didn't even know you know he had angels protecting him. Yeah constantly We were supposed to be going to park city two weeks. After he had been diagnosed. We had a trip booked and they were gonna learn to ski and snowboard for the first time at this had been brushed off again. I another miracle that he chose to jump off those stairs for his leg to hurt. If that hadn't happened. I am sure it would have happened on the ski slope. And that what the leg break a leg break would have meant amputation of the lake and the location of his tumor was so high that he would have lost his entire leg. The cancer would have spread everywhere he would have been immediate stage for and they would have to take everything. That's really really so just. I don't even have words for right word for that. Incredible amazing that he had angels watching out. I also think of like all those times that we pray for safety as our kids leave us whatever and or you know pray for our family to be safe and probably how many times they are protected and watched over that. We don't realize oh for sure maybe after. Or maybe never. Maybe i in the next life i don't know how. So what has this been like for crew. How has this affected him this. It's been hard on him. he still just. he's happy. cute sweet little self at home and his. It's really developed. His sense of humor hilarious. He's so funny you know he's been. He's basically been a mobile since january. He wasn't allowed to put any weight on his leg so they didn't want his late to break before surgery. And then you know of course after surgery. He's you know he's just barely starting to walk again and so there was one time. He told he told his other sister. Because hey you know. I left something for you. Downstairs in the kitchen go go get it. I left you. A surprise was a so highs so his sister runs all the way downstairs her super surprise and he looks over to me and he goes. I didn't get her anything. I just wanted to make her. Go downstairs and she goes crew when she realizes there's nothing there and he goes. You know he has this little monster voice he does and he goes godsell. I mean he's it hasn't been all terrible but they're definitely it definitely. he definitely hasn't gone unscathed. He changed his appearance drastically. He's you know has no color to his body and from. You know from the chemo. And then from the antibiotics. He has to take every weekend for the chemo. And you know not really being able to go outside. But he also isn't really allowed to be outside because now he son sensitive dude everything but you know. He's he's embarrassed of his appearance. He's he's very selective about who letsie him which is really hard. You don't saint you sent ten year old boy my faith throw a hat in. You're fine but but it's not like that every every time we go out. We've gone to the movies. We'll take him to them all he goes mom. Everybody's looking at me said no. They're you know they're not crew. They're just you're in a wheelchair of course they're gonna look at you. They're looking you too. I look at people you know but yeah it's just gotten a lot more self conscious than he ever was because he's used to just being like carefree little kid. Yeah yeah just kind of yeah. Lives life obliviously. Happy totally and it's it's interesting. How this ages them. I'm sure he's yeah he just. He seems so much more grown up to me. Now i keep telling him. I say you know crew. This is really gonna help you help other kids who who. Don't you know who feel bad. That are going through this. Who feel bad about the way they look or you know you're just going to be able to have so much more compassion for people that are going through stuff. That might not look normal.

"And feel that lightness. I dunno it's been huge. A lot of people are feeling. And i'm i. It's cool to talk to people who have been able to find some sort of joy and rebirth in a time. That's been really hard for a lot of people. Like i get where the fortunate wants to our. It's like. Hey you know. I personally haven't been hit as hard as a lot of people have been hit with that. I see it as a an opportunity to we've had this opportunity to level up and that's great. Yeah not everybody is feeling that. I'm aware of that. But i'm i don't know it's exciting to hear people shake it up and kind of get closer to what they maybe should have been doing in the first place early. Follow their heart a little bit more because the world's like almost self-correcting for you for us it was. It was becoming victims of our own success. It was him. Yeah it was like wow. This is really caught on. This is making an impact. This is making a very marketable impact. I'll be completely honest like you. Pack a place with a whole bunch of kids make for a great photo. Sure there's a lot of energy there. You see it behind the scenes and i'm not discounting any of the work that was done there but behind the scenes. It was stressful. Yeah it was super super stressful. And now you're not seeing as many students in the photos but the impact is much deeper. I know that's i love that. That's a good place to end because something that is a good takeaway is everybody's on enough everybody. I know everything set up in such a way to where there's power in numbers and numbers can give us this value right. I don't know you but okay. I heard a nick. So i can open up instagram or i can open up tick talker. I can open up twitter. And i can see how many people follow him. How many people he's connected to. Is he following the right people the right following him. It's like oh he's got seven hundred dollars or whatever like i don't really care about being his friend but if he's got hundreds of thousands or maybe a couple of million can see he's doing all the right things and that's just not how impact works like like sure. There is power in numbers like that. But there's also a power in so many things that we do every day the people that we touch every day the stories and ways that we can connect with other people that nobody else will know about. You know there's so much work like there's a certain amount of people who know what happens on tuesday at the skate park but so many of the the what that means. A lot of people's lives is largely going to go undocumented and that doesn't mean that it doesn't matter and that doesn't mean we can't show up even if nobody sees it. Yep because man if we can only show up when it's highly visible and we feel like there's going to be some sort of cool return for we're going to miss out on a lot of opportunities totally totally that's not that's not real if and yes. It's it's not it's not. It puts the cart before the horse. And like vat system is the system that reinforces people being who. They think they should be the which we've been talking about this whole time. You know it's all connected. So it's like i don't know man whatever you're doing out there matters and like even if you're not getting a ton of great feedback now someone cares for sure. So thanks for coming. Ma'am you'd think.

"Ten years. I lived at allowed the whole full ten years of the first by five years of that dude. I lived at that skate park and then had a street skated and stuff but yes the music and that culture. It was like the same time. So it all combined together dude. That's yeah that was when it started for us too. So i i think i started skateboarding in montauk so i go out to montoc every summer. We of live out there and then come back. Yeah so. I started learning out there. They have the they have. This awesome skate parks like a cement skate park. And like you go down. There's like banks on both sides so one top half is like everything starts here and then there's a bunch of stuff that is down here right. I don't know if that makes sense but you start up here. There's like a bank. You can go down or you can go down a double half pipe with a spies at all. It was all cement part cement. Yeah so you can do that and then if you go down the bank you can go up another bank and there was like a pool like a big in ground pool over there or along. That was like a long quarter pipe and then you can go around it and go down this big. Ask quarter pipe with Like a cement box. And that's where. I learned how to skate and i was the first day i went fall. Fall us go down the bank fall. Try to drop in fall do this. And it was on cement to and they're like five foot drop ins or something like that and didn't feel good. When i fell but man once i figured out how to drop in and all that stuff out was one of the best fucking feelings over yet but then my friends and i would start skating like in front of their houses and we started building like rails with like fence posts. Yes tax jess out of the spends posed. You have those big the gulf wax the big blind. Yeah yeah we would. We would have these like makeshift ramps. Makeshift rails all this stuff. Boston options but now is the time when me were also like listening to blink any to rise against all these different bands motion city soundtrack. All this stuff. Men are those those great times but all all of those people at least i skated with and stuff for the most part like they all kind of grew up to be like fairly unique people. You know the people that are very artistic creative. You weren't autistic. No artistic thinking when you said that. How much respect. I guess you learn to respect people out of the skate park like no matter like if they were on a bike aero skateboard on skates and i remember always like up on this ramp as a kid. You got the older kids like just tearing it up. Like no doing. And you'd have to back them with skipper over. There is one hundred people there now. If you show up there you know at five in the afternoon you might might catch a couple of people there. It's not like it used to be you'd be on this. We have a mini half pipe spine waiting to go you know. And then it was just like the unwritten rule.

"No, I'm not talking about Alpine vans. Or anybody like that. I'll tell you about me. And I'm kidding completely, but they do make sick fans. But either way, I'm from the D.C. area of born and raised and I went to school in southwestern Virginia and then moved out to veil, spent a couple of years out there and I was a snowboarder at that point. I mean, I grew up skiing, switched to snowboarding and probably like 94 90 maybe even though probably 96 97. And did that until about 2000 blew out my knee and then moved back home had a knee surgery and while I was rehabbing, I just kept emailing K two to hire me for this job they had called a K two ambassador that went ski resort to ski resort and skate park to skate park, depending on the season. And I got the job. They gave me a big Ford man that was like 12 feet long with like a $150,000 in product. And then they gave me a little VW Euro van that was graphic and they were just like, all right, plan your schedule, go to shops, go to every contest, go everywhere. You're the K two guy. And I did that on the east coast for 8 or 9 months, and it was the best job ever I made like 18 or 19 grand, which is pretty low. You know, not a college job. But I had probably a $30,000 expense budget where if I were going to your town and I didn't want to stay at a hotel I was going to stay at your house. I could take you to a $150 dinner, and that was cool. And I spent three weeks of the month on the road. My mom would call me when I'd be in New York City and she'd be like, Michael, there's an 18 Wheeler here that has 20,000 pair of flip flops for you.

It's making those changes and it's like evolving immensely. Yes there's going to be less intimidating for people. I ask but the the diversity aspect of it is making it less intimidating Just because when you see like if you go on instagram right now like the women's skateboarding is growing three times. Faster than men right now. So if you go on instagram you see so many girls so it's inspiring and it could just like push you and like you find like two friends like or one friend and then you buy skateboard and it's already less intimidating if you're to you know to people so i think people are thirty to do that and that's why we're seeing that growth in women's skating Aw.

"Just started writing a skateboard around. At first I was knee boarding it like all my knees is pushing around at like 13 14 not looking. Pull it all. And then I made some friends at school. I was already into like punk music size already kind of associated with a lot of White kids in my little school, so they when they thought I had a date where they're like, Oh, you see, people are cool. Let's do it like you're part of the crew. So I just started hanging out with a bunch of little white dudes at the school. They were super nice. They would take me to the Skate Park. So tell me what What was it like being one of the only girls around on a skateboard? Not only space for a woman in skateboarding back in my day was modeling. These were different times. Exploiting women was like, okay. Or acceptable back then, and I didn't realize I was being exploited because I was loving it. So it was fun for me. But I was very much like the like, sexy model girl who would be at like state contest passing out stickers and swag. I had, like a very small fan basically been skateboarding, but it was mostly just horny boys that thought I was hot. It wasn't anything like This girl rich when you found other women escape with how did that experience differ from skating with the boys? I think the biggest difference was just like the vibe When I started getting better with the boys. It was kind of like a little bit more competitive. And I could feel that vibe of like, okay. You're you're mad that I'm getting this trick. So let me stop. I feel like if I'm being too hard, and they're not gonna want to hit me up to skate anymore, you know? Because it's like no, she's showing me up into the girl. Let's not even hit her up. So sometimes I did feel like I should just chill and I would just hang out and smoke weed or whatever. Just because I don't want to, like, make it weird or have anybody questioning their manhood, But, uh With the girl that's like a whole different vibe. Nobody gets it If you're skating good, you're skating bad. There is no skating. Good skating bad. There's a lot of like collaboration. Everybody's teaching each other. There's a lot of learning from each other. So ever since I really ever since I made My older group of friends, which is really that little It's like a big group of like 30 women. I I am very adamant about not skating with boys to the point where my friends are, like annoyed at at me for it like I'll ask them, like Is there gonna be a dude there? Is it a girl sash, And if it's not, I'm just not interesting Just because I went so long without having any girls.

"Performances. I read they'll offer A blend of live installations and virtual streaming. How will that be demonstrated? So with our performance artists they have been in a very Interesting position this year because we were essentially shut down and permitting wasn't happening in parks or anything like that. The performance artists were allowed to kind of go a little bit rogue and occupy spaces they normally wouldn't be able to, either because of volume of foot traffic, gorgeous. It's very difficult to permit. So like in the instances, full radius dances work, they took over the historic fourth word Park Skate Park and what Able to do some of the most daring dance maneuvering I have seen, particularly since some of their dancers utilized wheelchairs in order to ambulance and I found myself really holding my breath quite a bit as I was watching the videos of been dancing in the bowls and then around the skate park and that video and they're artists talk happened at the beginning of the month and are available on our website. And on our social media channels, And then our discussion with liquid sky in a few weeks will be happening virtually will be screening the videos, much like we did with the radius of the work that they also created on the corridor, occupying Meadows and the trail itself and adjacent architectural structures and infrastructure of the corridor. And they've created these sort of story visual then yet, and we'll be screening those videos. Of their performances that happened on the corridor and talking to them about afterwards. My goodness, with the awful radius performance, their work is called free structure. Is there a narrative for that dance from what in your Douglas in the company of full Radius really talked about was restructure, was born out of what they overcame as a dance company. In the midst of Covid, You know, they began a lot of their Corio and photography in isolation, which is very odd for dancers. Dance is such a collaborative contact. Performance medium that this isolation work and then finally being able to come back together was their rethinking of their medium, and you can really see how that translates to the course of the work in the in the film that they ended up producing, and it's really powerful to see these dancers who are ready are overcoming obstacles of How dance is perceived as an able bodied effort, and they completely fly in the face of that notion with absolutely brilliant results. Miranda, can you tell us about the muralists from beltline walls and what they will present so bell and walls Volume three, and that video is up for folks to view But we posed a really big challenge to our muralist this past year with ongoing development around the corridor, the warehouse spaces that earlier iterations of art on the Atlanta Beltline and often used for our mural. Projects have slowly you know they've been developed. They've been turned into other forms of property that we don't really have access to any more to create the mural work. So we've turned to the tunnels and that very essential architecture of the railroad corridor, right? Our bridges and our tunnels. And we've challenged our muralists. Now for the last couple years in painting in the spaces, and this year, probably more so than most we gave each other. Muralists, a full bridge to tackle. Um it was a huge challenge. And these incredibly brilliant artists really rose to the occasion. And we have some really spectacular artwork along the sort of hero bridges like the big bridges on the East Side Trail. Can you describes Well, certainly, Brandon Sadler took over North Avenue and continued this narrative work. He's been building on the Beltline feel probably the last six years and put it all together with this mythical character that he created a BIA and it's told in a comic book style, so each section of the bridge looks like a giant comic panel. And this is as you're driving down North Avenue. You can see it. You either coming or going Hence took over Virginia Avenue. He has been painting on that bridge longer than the belt line has been there, you know, back in his graffiti artist days, he often worked in that space, and so we brought him back. He took over the entirety of the bridge and this really beautiful abstract color field work that is reflective of his studio practice and marching on down the East Side trailhead in south you'll see Genevieve reads beautiful work on North Island Avenue, where she draws from the mask traditions of various indigenous peoples all across the world to speak to the unity of how we.

How Indigenous skateboarders use their boards for creative expression and land reclamation

"Neighbor down the street was like, what do you like skateboarding? So much I was like Yo, check this out kick flipped I try and I was like see that that's like magic to me. That's a magic trick that just happened in like I get to do that over and over and again, and I get to do other magistrates to been like. So that's why I love it. That was Blakey White Cloud. He has spent a lot of time at skate parks whether he skateboarding or making documentaries about indigenous skateboarding for both CBC and a t N.. Here's a bit from the dock he produced for CBC arts called how the art of Skateboarding can also be an act of empowerment. Me skateboarding gave me the voice of community. You can stay when you're sad you're mad depressed and at the end of the day to day mind. So clear. PARTICI-. Relaxing it's almost meditation. Gave me pretty much everything down to like personal confidence. gave me a wave. Accomplished something I never thought I could do we concentrate so hard on town nail one trick and determined that you want it I went to have it feels awesome but you build up to your bruise you blood for the phone for A. Thank. God. That was a clip from how the art of skateboarding can also be an active empowerment a documentary by Khawaga Blakey. White cloud. So, Khawaga. What is it about skateboarding that you love the most the thing I love skateboarding the most is the visceral reaction when you lend something that you thought of that, you self actualized that you were like, I wonder if I could do this or your friend was like I wonder if you could do this and then you're like I don't know if I do this and then you know you try it and you might not make it and you're like Oh. Maybe if I shift my feet a little bit differently and then Lo and behold, you make it and you're just like like your hair stands up on ends you just like. People might. Be Cheering for unions. And so like that's what I love most about it is that kind of visceral passionate? Yes. Did it. So, what would you say is the relationship between indigenous people and skateboarding that's like an interesting one because I think it's unique to every person. But in my case, it was definitely the getting kicked out of private property and like having a discussion about like, oh, like let's have a discussion about treaties, Mike and Private property right and then some people just refuse to do it and then other listen they're like, Whoa, like you have a really good point. Right. So there's that and then also the kind of spiritual aspect of being out on the land like hanging out like outside all day and. Doing something that's leading to a good life, right like that like your emotional health like you're getting all that out your physical mental, your occupational like just the way you're spending your time. You know you're you're doing something really good with your life, your environmental rate you're hanging outside and your intellectual being challenged all the time to break because sometimes a trick isn't working out like you're just like Oh. Maybe just move my feet like just a little bit back and then like. It happens and you're just like Oh my God that was the key right. So yeah. So all these things like all of them are challenged. All get amplified and you just feel like a way healthier. Person Afterwards and I think like that's kind of pushed through in like we talk about health from an indigenous perspective like it's not just like your physical health rate and it's like all these other aspects of it that we don't necessarily talk about but that that comes to you and skateboarding And you said it's. Like reconciliation in reality. What do you? What do you mean by that? There's a long history like along colonial history that we've never. Really. been taught through the regular education system nor in the media and it's missing from a lot of the discussions around what does it mean to be indigenous into Canadian society when we start talking about like oh You know skating on your private property, but this is actually true one and like the best example was getting kicked out of the Manitoba Hydro Building by an employee he was like Oh like you should get out of here and I was like we will in five minutes. All respect and he's like, no, you need to get out of here. Now they don't you know who paid for all this and I was like well, like no Manitoba Hydro derived a lot of its profits from like indigenous lands. Expropriated and then they really properly compensated them. So as indigenous person like I think the right to be here and like he had no clue to say to that right like he was just like he just put up his hands and he turned around left and I was like that's right like you're talking to somebody who's like who has an idea of what the history is and I know that deep down inside you know what the history is and so. Like let's acknowledge that but to some people like they don't want knowledge it right like just like him. He didn't want acknowledged he just wants to run and go grab the security but I think like the more we have these discussions the more we come to a clarity of like what's actually happened and what needs to happen in order to move forward for justice for indigenous peoples in Canadian society.

"Our podcast. Fast is generally categorized as a sustainability podcast but sustainability in a lot of its forms doesn't always have to meet environmental on today. I think we're going to talk a lot. More about sustainable communities in social impact messaging. But before we get into all of that I know you have a very cool story. Okay and I want you to walk me through how Kentucky Kid ended up in the California arts scene and not just ended up in the art scene but really at the heart of everything going on uncreative in California. Well when a you know born and raised in Louisville or at least mostly raised in Louisville my mother passed away when I was sixteen or fifteen years old so so Came to live in Los Angeles with her sister. My Aunt Doris Johnson. Who interesting enough kind of figure? In Louisville. She was a musician on on the scene on Washington Street. And all the cool like bars and sixties. I came to live with her. And after you know losing your mom barely having having relationship with your father and being dumped in a whole new city which is completely different than where you were you. Kind of options are limited to where he kinda migrate towards so you know fortunately and unfortunately depending on which lends you look at it through. I kind of found myself migrating grading towards gangs here in Los Angeles. Because that was you know it was it felt like a safe place for me and I was accepted for who I was and just kind of started hanging out in the wrong places. Let's say and then I was introduced to graffiti. You know and I was like. Hey this is a safer. Kind of environment with a similar her fraternal brotherhood. Feel a crew of guys that really care about each other look out for each other and will do anything for each other so you know. Even though it wasn't the greatest artist that's kind of where I ended up and then from there you know kind of you know naturally being a business minded person. I guess I've tried to figure out a way where since I was is it the greatest graffiti artists in the world. How can actually turn this into a business? How can I monetize these kids skills? And how can we make a business out of this. I guess you could say you caught foresight to a certain extent you know none of us knew what we were doing. As far as business was concerned or or the detention by ability for business. But you know I just had had the vision that one day this would be accepted art form and that people would pay for it and that's kind of what got me in the business of art in so what's now bringing you back back to your roots back to Louisville. Well it's an interesting. That's an interesting conversation as well. I mean you know given the fact that I lost my mom early it was Kinda four letter word for me. I loved the basketball aspect of my hometown. Whether it be local or you have L. or K.. Not Always Watch the Games and stay connected. You know through Athletics but you know it's just kind of a a negative feeling when I thought about home based on my loss and a friend of mind Danny Wimmer who does music festivals back in local. He does hometown rising Bourbon and beyond and louder than life started these festivals and we had some business together. And he's like you should come see what we're doing here. It's pretty cool so I I went home and you know I have to say I was completely shocked at how much change had happened in the city. How cool the scene? The Art scene was in the music scene and how much progressive it was considering. How how it was when and I left thirty years ago or whatever so you know? I reconnected with a lot of my high school friends and I and I really. I really kind of felt that special feeling and you know like how special it is to be in Louisville in how special the people are so I decided I wanted to try to figure out some ways that I could bring some of the stuff that I'm doing here. You're back home and not only expose people at home to how cool what. La and an international graffiti and street. Art Scene feels like but also get some of these skies from Paris or Australia or London to touch ground in Louisville and see how special the ground and the people are there. So that's really kind of the inspiration spradlin behind the wall sluggers project and talk a little bit more about that and what exactly you guys are doing with branded arts. Well you know it's natural for me due to try and bring something that's so accessible to me back home and something that we've been doing for over twenty years so I got together with some people here in La and we decided we wanted to put together a mural project not a mural festival because it's not going to happen happened in a short period of time. I'd like to have start during Derby create. Do our first activation in the end with a bang during the try festival varied in October with Daniel presents officially with them but during that time so that gives us a seven or eight month time period to execute as many beautification. You too fixation. Projects as we can whether it be for community or for commercial because we're having a lot of conversations in in different areas you know one of the things we're trying to do is as we would like to revitalize the area surrounding the Skate Park and we're talking to the city and I've got diamond supply company here in La that wants to help fund it will take some skaters back Jack and will do a huge day when we unveil the the mirrow but then also some of the stuff we're trying to do is we'd love to do some beautification at the healing place. which is the number one recovery center in local? We'll at least to my knowledge. They have three facilities. And we've talked about painting you know doing something at all three. And then we're also talking Johnson middle school about coming in and doing something something in their gymnasium and in the hallway that's motivational and inspirational to the kids on the ground. So I mean it's really it's it's really a pretty thick and robust program program an ambitious program but considering all the love for the arts and local getting everything funded should should be. I don't WanNa say easy but I'm confident that will find refunds. We need you have such a large network of artists and just like people around you and talent in friends in industry names as as we look back on the last decade while also like looking ahead to the next. I mean this is GonNa be hard. This is going to be like picking your favorite child but like who do you think were some of the most influential artists famous well known or not over the last ten years in the scene and also who do you think is really GonNa make an impact on the next ten. Wow how that's a tough question. You know one of the things that I always say when people ask me questions like this or Gimme the credit for being where I am in what I do is. I don't know anything else that no one else knows. Like I'm not the smartest guy in the world you know. I'm not Jeffrey Deitch. Or you know I just happened to have a lot of really cool friends. Does that make art. And I'm I'm just blessed to be in the right place at the right time but if I have to answer that question I would say shepherd. Ferry is probably to me one of the most influential fluential artists that I've ever worked with and of my time because of the reach that he isn't able to accomplish and a lot of the social chain he's been able to to to activate or or be a part of an and he keeps that as as a common denominator to most of the things that he does you know he has a ton of integrity. He understands the value of social economics and he understands the impact that his art has on people that see it so you know I'd give him the. Probably you know that credit to be one of the most influential influential artists of our time. As far as I'm concerned I mean obviously banks is is hugely famous and hugely popular. But I don't think banks he's making near the change range in the world that Shepherd Fair has been able to accomplish and I admire that and as far as the future goes the landscape is changing so much when I when I got into the art xenos like you had to pay dues. You had to you know you had to pay your time and you had to put your time in and you had to get the experience now with the age of the Internet and in how just media in general has changed who knows who the next new artist is going to be. I don't think it's going to be one. I think it's going to be thousands of new artists that have change your have the ability to to make change and and create impact. Because you know everyone has a voice now when it comes to art or creativity eighty or music based on their ability to publish almost immediately Anything they want so I don't think there's going to I think it's going to change landscape landscape to WHO's the guy who's the I think it's going to be the entire generation that actually is credited for for that space. You talked a lot. What about you know change in social good? I'm curious because obviously Rubicon Environmental Company. That's trying to make a change in you know we're trying going to do what we can. How do you think that environmental sustainability social messaging you all of that plays a role in our you? No I've done some research about Green Rafidi and I don't necessarily mean you know. Let's toxins in the paint can. But do you think that some of the messages that you've seen on some the murals and art are now kind of leaning more towards environmental messaging. What are some of those trends like? Well I mean yes. There's you know we understand standing power we have to to move the needle into communicate to the masses you know when it comes to street art and graffiti. I mean that's the core reason for doing doing so is messaging you know it started with like look at me and now look at these issues. or or let's beautify neighborhood there's a ton of people in the space that are now making different French choices to materials that they use and there's a ton of manufacturers in the business that are looking for new solutions just invited a guy yesterday named Dj that has a company called can love and their whole their whole idea. is they recycle cans and they make these beautiful hearts with the inside of the can facing out so you can see the different colors. They take the top the cans and they asked him to make him flowers. Yes really really cool and so everyone is a little bit more conscious as the world wakes up. You know people. We'll have to be responsible for what their footprint is. And what their messages in regards to that footprint so you know whether we find perfect solutions to to the environmental issues when it comes to materials or or application. It's really how we speak about it. And how and the message that we leave behind because at the end of the day. That's it's what art is. It's a form of messaging and communication hopefully to impact and create change or motivate people to activate. Something what you know whatever it is you know the message for our next show is called Love Los Angeles style. And you know it's all about love everything that we're doing in every bit out of messaging is about activating love so you know there's a huge social impact component to what we do and I think most of the people that You know are involved or or waking up and utilizing that tool for that for those
