"We have hundreds of kids that are beginners playing tournaments now. And then, you know, all the stuff that happens once they start competing and creating Friends, learning about competition, getting better, can competitively play, right? So that's that bottom foundation that we've got to grow. And really, really fortunate to have, you know, that relationship from the ATP event come down to support that, you know? It's going to take a lot of work, but you know as it provided orange ball red ball tournaments, you have to have them if you have these programs, but you try to send your kid to a $65 tournament that they get an hour of playing they lose. As a parent, how could you continue to do that? Extra lesson will go a lot further. So I'm going to steal that because I do think I have some sponsors that would underwrite, let's say, because we can do it with time and every weekend. At our facility, we do a level 7 or a level 6 every weekend. We got the boys level one over Thanksgiving this year. But those level 7 should you write if I could get those parents to take that 65 bucks? Put it into an extra lesson a week, right? Or extra extra less than a month, the game goes further. And that's a good idea. I'm definitely stealing that. I've been talking to Martin blackman about it and what we did too and take this is we had a $15,000 pro circuit event. On the day of the semis or finals, we ran a level 7. So you had the stadium court going, right? Yeah, the stadium court going with the finals. We had all of 23 other courts going with a level 7. What did they do when they're done with their match? They watch. And you have this little ten year old kid hole in his trophy. Watching that match and looking at the future of our tennis. And so by connecting them, now you're helping the pro circuits that don't get anybody. You need to challenge your level. You struggle. At the two 50 level you struggle. And you're talking, right? And so, you know, we're talking about, hey, use the kids, not use the kids, but use the platforms and these tournaments use the kids levels to help support protons. Protons help support kids, interconnect them. And that's what we did in Stockton. I remember our supervisor was Mike Lou, and we told him, hey, we've got a level two boys 16s and girls 16s and then during our challenger, can we mix it? And he's like, that's a great idea. So we had France's tiafoe play Noah Rubin. We had we had the white fence. We had a little 16s match here. How cool is that?

"Think the hardest fight I've ever flown was probably our trip up to bend Oregon where we got above a smoke here. I made the video about it. We get above a smoke layer and we kind of get trapped up there in my family is getting hypoxic. We're only at 11,000 feet. And they were not feeling well and I felt like we were kind of stuck up there. We couldn't really dissent through the smoke. I didn't feel comfortable with that. And they were just not doing well. By the time we landed, everybody was just like totally sick and it was just horrible. It was just not a it was probably yeah, it was the worst flight for sure. Would you say it was one of the hardest decisions you've had to make while flying a plane is whether or not the turnaround to land or to keep going? Well, that one wasn't such a hard decision because turning around and going forward was probably about the same amount of time and I didn't really think descending wasn't wasn't like, oh, this is a hard decision what to do. It just was terrible. Probably the toughest decision was I don't know, there's been a couple one where I didn't decide to not to go not to flag the turbulence looked really bad. I made a video about that one. And a couple other ones where we had to divert because of weather with friends in the plane. Those are always tough. This is a rapid IRA. I'm talking too much. You're good. What's your favorite fight you've ever found? Those are the first time you got the Cherokee 6, take it up and go fly or senior family in it for the first time or something else. Oh, my favorite flight I've ever flown. That's a good question. Yeah, maybe it was our first time we got the Cherokee one 80 right after I got it. We had our first family trip was up to Monterey. And it's kind of like our first long trip together. First time we flew somewhere and ran out of call and had a little vacation. That was really fun. It was really exciting. What's your favorite airport you've ever landed at? My favorite airport I've ever landed at I mean, I really like Catalina because it feels like you're far away from LA. And you're just right there. What's your least favorite? Does that necessarily be your least favorite airport? But you could just have all your landings either bad there, the crosswinds are really bad. Just the conditions always don't seem conducive for you when you go there. My least favorite airport. I don't know. I guess, man, I honestly, I don't have a least favorite. Maybe I don't know. Yeah. That works. That's good. Don't have a lease here. Would you rather IFR VFR? I like both, but I'll say VFR for the freedom. If you are making a fuel stop somewhere new, you need to go do some food, you're grabbing a crew car. What kind of food are you guys looking for? You go to the Chick-fil-A route, you go fast food, you try to find a local barbecue joint. We'll definitely not do fast food. We'll try to find a nice local joint. There you go. Would you rather 5 our mountains beaches or the cities? Mountains. Would you rather fly one long trip? So the longest flight you can do in the Cherokee 6 or as many touching goes as you could do. I like the long flight because it means I'm going somewhere. It's the hardest check already you've ever taken. Well, I guess the instrument has only taken two. So yeah, instrument. What's the biggest win of your aviation career? The biggest win? Yeah. Like the best moment. The best moment. I think the best moment is anytime I'm just flying with my family and we're rocking out to some music at 10,000 feet on our way somewhere fun. What's the biggest regret every career if you have one? Just not starting sooner not finishing my private. Back when I started it. I think I know the answer to this question, but if you could do it all again, would you buy a piper or a cessna or are you all team piper all the way? I mean, I've loved the airplanes that I've bought, although you don't know any different maybe owning assessment would be just as awesome. I don't know. I'm as happy with it. That's funny. All right, well, those are all of the rapid fire questions. Thank you so much for coming on the podcast. I truly appreciate your time. Keep making this awesome videos. And who knows? You ever want to sell your 6 one day, give me a call if I haven't bought a plane by then. All right. Thanks for having me. Thank you. I appreciate you. Have a great day. And that's a wrap of episode two O 7 on the pilot the pile podcast. It's crazy being back. I can't believe those 5 weeks went by so fast. I don't know if my interviewing has changed or has got any worse, a little bit rusty, but here we are in the interviews we'll be back. If you want someone on the podcast, email me, pilot the pilot headquarters at Gmail dot com. I try to email back as much as I can. Obviously you can imagine it's a little crazy right now, so I don't even really back right away, don't be offended it might take a little bit of time, but send me all the cool stories. I would love to interview every single pilot in the world and get their stories on here. But Ava nation, I hope you enjoyed today's episode. Make sure to steal your friend's phone and download this podcast their phone, so it's the most listened to podcasts in the world. Yes, do that. Maybe don't. That's probably not the best thing to say. But anyways, I hope you guys are having a great day. And as always, happy fun..

"Day. She was like really comfortable. Which to me was in the totally insane. It wasn't like she put her hands on the oak, she's like, oh, this is great. It definitely took that whole first day and maybe a little bit more of the second morning. I think by the second morning she was actually more confident. She came to feel like I actually feel good about this. And by the end of that second day, she was like, I hate to admit it. I actually like this, which totally blew my mind. Like it to the point of where she wants to do more or she just happy with what she's doing. I think if it didn't require the book study and the written test and like so much commitment over and over like she would do it. She would love to she would love to fly, right? She would love to do more flying. But I don't think she wants to put in the time and effort. It really takes to get a private pilot license. I don't think she's like, you have to really want it bad to do it because it's not an easy thing to do. To find the time and to dedicate to do it, right? And the discipline to see it through. I don't think she's going to do that, but she loves to actually fly the airplane, which is cool. Catch your land better than you? No. She had her lane. I mean, we definitely still need to work on she needs to do more to get the airplane on the ground. And walk away have everybody walk away from it. But the airplane, I think would likely be damaged or you know what I mean, it's not like she's going to grease a bunch of landings. She did land the airplane herself. But I think we should do some more lessons. We just haven't had time to do it yet. Have a prioritize that yet. Yeah. Be more be good content, right? Keep it going. Yeah. Jason will pay for it. That's awesome. So future, possibly a bigger, faster airplane, doing all these videos. When you see yourself retiring from your professional job, do you see yourself diving more into YouTube, creating more videos and going bigger and better? Or are you kind of happy with how this is going and you keep the same pace? Oh, I mean, even before that, I would love to ramp up more. I have the ideas that I want to do that are definitely bigger and I think better. And I'm starting to do some of those. I would yeah, I would love to keep it going and make it. I mean, I would love to have time to do to do more. And I would love to have the channel have some more sponsors so that we can do more so that I can make it a little bit more of a priority and do a little bit more on it. It would be really, really fun. Yeah, I would love to keep doing the YouTube thing. I mean, it's fun for me to create my own stuff. I enjoy it and as long as it's fun, I'll keep doing it. I think if it turns into a grind too much, then I'll probably back off it a little bit. Because I've already, I already have a job that's sometimes can feel that way. Sometimes. It's mostly awesome, but sometimes it can definitely feel like feel like a job job, you know? I don't want it to feel that way. And everything kind of has its peaks and valleys, right? So even like this, or even like a podcast here, there's sometimes where I'm just not feeling it. It's not something I'm really interested in doing. But still do it. You just push through. You work through the valleys and enjoy the peaks. So there's going to be a time when that happens. And if you need to step away for a week or two and miss a video or how frequent you post so be it, it'll be good. Yeah, and I think one of the things that keeps me going on the YouTube videos is the aviation community and the connection with other people is one of the reasons that I've been doing it and that I really enjoy about it. We have an awesome community on my Patreon site and we have a Discord chat. I'm like, I've gotten to know some of the people over there and we've flown together and seeing becoming friends with people who are really passionate about aviation and then following them through their aviation journey and sharing those exciting moments. That's really fulfilling and the connection with the community. I get a lot of people who talk about that pinch hitter video, saying like, you know, I was getting my private pilot license or I had an airplane and my wife would never fly with me. We saw that she saw that video. We watched it together. And now it's totally changed. She wants to go. She wants to do that same kind of thing. She's way more open to it. And I'm like, that's awesome. To be able to have that connection and reaction have people react to the material that way in the content and what we're putting out and to connect with it is really rewarding as a creative person. So as long as that is continuing, I'm definitely game as someone who is very much into their career and is humble about the way they approach things and has the right mindset for YouTube and how a pilot should approach aviation content on YouTube. There's a lot of people probably watching videos. They're 16, 17, they're getting into this industry. They want to have a YouTube channel. They want to be content creators and they want to do with aviation. What would I know we talked about this a little bit, but here's the chance to give him three tips for success. Obviously you can tie this into your secrets and camera work or whatever it is, but just practice makes perfect. But what would you recommend them? Maybe three, four, 5 tips to be the best content creator thing to be visually and also to make sure they stay away from some YouTube craziness. Well, I think I would I definitely would want to say before any of this that having cameras in the cockpit is a huge potential for distraction and an accident chain to start. So my number one tip is to make sure that you have a lot of experience as a proficient and safe pilot before you even think about doing that kind of stuff. And it's something that I take very, really seriously and think about every time that I fly trying to make my camera set it and forget it, not worrying about what the cameras are capturing. While I'm flying, not worrying about setting things up somewhat like changing batteries or cards or worrying about it at all because the potential is there and it's real and I think it can take for student pilots who are like, I want to document my journey. It's like, man, you've got your hands full just fly, just learning how to fly. You're going to throw this other thing in the mix, like be super careful with it. Make sure you're setting yourself up in a way that is not going to distract you. So I think that's really number one for me is the safety aspect of it. Just making sure that you're setting yourself up to have a safe experience with it. Other tips, let's see. What are the other tips to create to create aviation content? I mean, I guess like for me, I'm just always come from story. What story are you trying to tell? What are you trying to communicate about aviation? What is it that you like about it? What is it that you want to say with it? And I don't know if that applies to everybody because a lot of aviation videos are like more kind of ride along things. But those aren't really the ones that I like to watch. I like to watch the more story oriented stuff. So that's where I come from from that background. So I always think what stories do you want to tell? And then set yourself up to do that. Did I answer your question, I'm not sure. What was it more? I was just your tips for success. So I guess you're kind of hitting on it. Another one would be that I want to ask is people are obsessed with the best cameras. Would you recommend us film with what you got? Or is there a certain amount of quality you do need now to be successful?.

"Yeah, and that's kind of, I mean, I never really thought about it, JK 6 until I saw your plane and obviously you're playing the beautiful. So everyone that sees your planes were like, oh, Jerry 6 let's do it. But not all Cherokee 6 is look like yours. But you're right. When looking at a bonanza prices are crazy right now, but a bonanza, it's like, all right, cool. Maybe a little bit faster. It doesn't carry as much or it's right around the same. But you're right. We're traffic here, the insurance is ridiculous. They're just a peace of mind of less mechanics, less things to go wrong, like not having to have an emergency landing with your gear up because you're all come down or just that kind of stuff. You said it's just such a great piece of mind. Sacrificing that a little bit of speed. It's no big deal. Especially when you're saving money and insurance. And then you can go ahead and put more money into more fun flying. Right. Yeah, and I think it would be great to have a retractable gear airplane that goes faster, but for us it costs different student out that way, like what did it make sense for what the speaking would be like, you gained ten or 15 knots. So set 7 like 7 minutes for every hour that you fly or something is what you're gaining. So maybe on a three hour trip, we're gonna save like 20 minutes and it's like, well, I'll just get them out of the house 20 minutes sooner. You're 7 done. But yeah, that's how I thought about it. I can either just 20 more minutes on a typical trip or it's gonna be hundreds or thousands of dollars more a year. I was like, well, let's just put that money into something else. So the 6 where it stops, or are you constantly thinking as the family? I don't know if it gets bigger, but as your career progresses and as you kind of see other airplanes like, oh, that three ten looks kind of cool or oh, that Seneca looks cool. Is there any chance you're going to upgrade to another airplane? Are you happy where you are with the Cherokee 6? I've been in researching it. I'm super happy with the 6. And but yeah, I was like, well, as a more I fly and I get into weather or I have trips that are starting out a couple trips that were like about icing, which will be an upcoming videos where we get almost get into some icing kind of situations and stuff. I start thinking like, man, it'd be nice to be able to be more confidently get through a layer that might have ice so like a flight into non ice. Equipped airplane would be great. And so I started looking into that and the price difference and operating cost is so drastic from where we are now that it's probably not going to happen anytime soon. But definitely starting to look into it. I mean, it would be I would love to have a turbo Seneca leaky turbo Seneca or something would be amazing. And you could just really use that plane to travel. And more reliably, which would be awesome. Yeah, no, that would be awesome. It's funny as you are in aviation. I'm sure it wasn't too long after you got your one 80 year Cherokee 6 that eventually you see the Seneca. You see, you see, I don't know, that's a king era or like a mirage or something bigger and faster and just not better, but better at the same time and you're like, that would be pretty cool to have that one day. It's like I'm totally happy with where I am, but you know what, that would be sweet. The videos would look extra crispy with that. Oh yeah, I mean, it would be, it would be so fun. Maybe one day when I have the time and money to put to it, then we could think about it. And that's probably, yeah, I guess, maybe I'll live somewhere else, not LA and I'm all like commute myself, rely with turbo fiki twin or something. To where I need to be for all my jobs, that would be awesome. But right now that's not going to happen right now. But maybe and you've got to keep dreaming, right? That's why most people are in aviation or sort of like dreamers in some way, I think. We're always thinking about this like these lofty goals that take a long time to achieve. It is not like tomorrow, anything is going to change for you in aviation, like things take a long time. It takes a lot of work to get to where if I want to fly this twin, like, I got to go get my multi. I've got to get hours. I got to get all these steps, right? But then you go through all those steps. You set your sights on it. You go through all that. You work hard for it and you get there and it's the journey along the way is what's super fun and when you get there, it's so fulfilling in every way. And that's what aviation is, right? It's so fulfilling in those ways. And so I think you've got to keep setting your sights on the next thing and at least thinking about it, right? Yeah, for sure. I also saw an interesting series. We're both sponsored by Jason Miller, learned the final points best ground school up ever. Shameless plug. But I saw a cool series that you did with Jason and your wife or Jason would prepare your wife for a situation where the worst thing happens. If you don't have Garmin smart guide and you're playing, which you should. But if you don't have that button to push where it can glide you back home or the actual one where it takes you back an autoland. It's important to have some someone in the airplane that knows what to do in an emergency. They don't have to have their license. But just be able to land the plane that extra peace of mind to know that your wife could put the plane down if you or hypoxic passed out. You had a heart attack, whatever it is. Talk about that process. Was that something you generated that you wanted to happen or was she talking about how she wants to fly? That was definitely me saying, hey, I think this would be a good idea. And her transformation from the first time that she looked into the cockpit of the one 80 to where she is now with flying is like a total one 80. It's crazy. She was in the beginning. Terrified to fly to be a passenger in the back of the back of the chair here in the front of the Cherokee. And in any case, she would basically have to have some kind of anti anxiety medication to be able to get in there. And that was I felt awful about it and I was like, we've got to work at getting you more comfortable. And as we would do more flights together, she would get a little more comfortable. But she was still really scared. Of it. And then the reason that we did the pinch hitter thing was not necessarily that, was not to help her with her fears. It was really what if something happens to me. I want you to be you to understand how to get this plane down and get to safety because it's a remote possibility, but it's still a possibility. And I think one of the benefits additional benefits of it was going to be like maybe this will make her more comfortable in general. I'm going to make you more comfortable in turbulence if you're controlling the plane. I'm sure you've experienced that. For me, flying in a commercial airliner, I get bounced around or whatever the turbulence when I'm not in control, it freaks me out a little bit, but when I'm flying, I'm totally fine with it. So I thought that same thing might happen with her. And I had been watching Jason Miller's videos for a long time on YouTube and I was like, this guy's an amazing flight instructor. So I just reached out to him and I was like, hey, what do you think about doing this collaboration? And he was game for it, which was great. And the experience was totally transformative for her. And super fun, just like on a personal level to get to know Jason and his family and become friends, like it was such a great experience overall. How quickly did you notice her anxiety kind of dropped down once she had more of an understanding or when she was at the controls? Was it immediate? Did it take a couple lessons or I guess what I'm asking is, were you surprised that her reaction to learning how to fly? Not learning how to fly but learning how to control a dangerous situation? She was so completely terrified to take the controls on the way up there. She basically was like, crying about it on our flight up there. And a little bit of this is in the video. Where she's had so much anxiety about it. And then before the flight she was really anxious and nervous about it. And it took, I think we flew with Jason for two days when we were up there and then she came back down here and we flew two more days. And I want to say by.

"I think it would be difficult if this were like YouTube or just your job because you're just constantly at the mercy of this algorithm and of what you think the audience wants because you don't ever totally know you're always kind of guessing and I feel that because I'm looking at the numbers always I'm curious about it, right? And I think that that would be that would be a difficult temptation oh, for sure. Yeah, especially if it requires you to put food on your table. Yeah, and you see that you make the days, weeks into this video and it's beautiful. The story is great and it just doesn't get clicks. The algorithm doesn't pick it up where you see some Yahoo postes crazy video and it gets all these views and all these clicks. It's inherently in your mind to be like, all right, well, I want to do what works. I want to chase what gets the views. A crazy situation. And I don't want to say it's all YouTube's fault, but they definitely have created this kind of click baity. Content and people, I guess aviation might be a little bit different because people will just sit and watch videos that are 30 minutes long if someone taking off and landing and just talking and they will watch it. So there are people there. But it just seems like the clickbait thing just unfortunately does a lot for the algorithm. Yeah, I experienced the frustration. I made this video about our family's adventure going flying to Santa Barbara in paragliding. And loved that video is so close to me. It's a personal video and I put a lot of time and effort into I had somebody helping shoot it. And I spent a lot of time editing it and the story of music and everything. And I was like, when I before I published, I was like, this video is going to be so great. People are going to love this so much heart to it. It's going to be the best thing. And it just did not do well on my channel. As far as views, I get lots of great comments on it, but as far as just like the numbers thing, it's just was not a high performing video. And it really bummed me out. I was like, what? I don't understand this thing at all. I was like, ah, whatever. I'm still going to make stuff like this because I go back and I watch that thing and I'm like, this is good work right here. This is what it's all about. Our family adventure and there's so much like themes about my kids growing up and over people overcoming fears and their story and heart there. And I'm like, I'm just going to make this stuff that has story and heart anyway. I'm not necessarily going to just put on a ride along video where I'm like, those are great. It's super useful for people learning to fly or it's interesting or whatever, but I want to do something a little different. Yeah. It's got to be frustrating. You put in all that work in your mind, you hit upload, you're like, all right, here goes, I'm going to be viral. I'm going to get a million followers on this video right now, boom, a week later, no one watched it. It's like what the heck are you kidding me? Yeah, yeah. You can constantly be chasing that too. That's what I was saying. Yeah, you could constantly be trying to guess on. What is it that people? And they have all these graphs and charts and little things like where do people, where do they stop watching? Where do they come back to watch? What are the key moments? And you could really break it all down and try to get specific with it and figure that all that stuff out or you can just kind of like do stuff that you enjoy and help people come along for the ride, like if you build it, they will come. I'm kind of thing. So I'm just coming from more of that place of like, I'm going to share the passion of aviation and the actual experience of being a general aviation pilot. Doing all the different things I do with aviation, like family trips and work trips flying myself around different places for work. I'm going to portray all that stuff in the most honest way that I can with story and then hopefully people will watch. Yeah, and I'm not a YouTube creator yet. I want to get an airplane to make videos. But I'd imagine that having that approach and having not going viral in your first ten, 15, 20 videos. It's probably very beneficial for your mindset because if you put your first video out there and you get a million views, the chances are happening again are so slim. And one you're going to quit too, you're going to chase YouTube, or you're going to chase clickbaity titles. And three, you're not going to put in the work consistently to build up your platform because you're going to chase that high of getting a million views over and over and over again and you won't consider any video success. You won't consider any video as success until you get over that viewpoint. Right, yeah. That's a good point. Yeah. So I want to talk about the Cherokee 6. Why you talk about your other airplane that you bought and sold? What was it about the Cherokee 6? Specifically the one that you found. And I watched your video and I will say it is one of the only videos that I've watched more than once. I think you and Casey and I probably have the videos that I've sat down and watched more than one just because they're so good and so put together. Like, well, put together so well. And it was very fun to watch. My wife's actually one that sent it to me. And she is like, you have to get this guy on the podcast. She said, it's me probably about. I don't know 8 months ago. So I apologize for not doing it earlier. But she sent it to me again. And nonetheless, here we are. Talk about buying this Cherokee 6 and wanting to do a project airplane. Yeah, so we were looking, I was going to sell new that I wanted to Cherokee 6. I did a lot of research about other airplane types and we wanted an airplane that could carry more stuff than the Cherokee one 80 would go a little bit faster and would have more range. So less fuel stop our typical family trip would be like from LA to Sedona or maybe beyond that. So it would be like three hour three to 5 hour trip and my family likes to pack a lot of stuff. So we were really bumping up against the space and the weight in the one 80. We were kind of always near max gross. I didn't really like how that airplane flew in the summer. At max gross we got mountains over here and all in the west in the western U.S.. So we were looking for something that could carry more and would just be more comfortable. So I settled in on the Cherokee 6 and then we were looking, we'd actually didn't look that long it was probably a couple months. And of course, like you get impatient, right? And I sold my one 80, I think. And I don't remember exactly the timing. But I think I sold it pretty much before I even bought the other one and eventually we found this one online and it was just like one blurry picture of it sort of on the trade of plane hat. I remember the ad. And my buddy Don, who's a mechanic. And Florida lives like at an air park and he had helped me. I met him through a form of type form. He had helped me find the one 80, like three years before, buy it and that plane was based out of Atlanta and he picks it up and then put an engine monitor in and did a little bit of cosmetic work. Fix it up a little bit before I had somebody ferry it out. And then so he was helping me find this other plane and he sent this listening to me. He said, well, what about this? I wasn't really, do you want to do a project? And I was like, I don't know, do you want to do a project? You're the one that's going to do everything. He was like, I guess so I mean, yeah, just going to take a while to probably take some time. I was like, well, how long do you think it's going to take? He's like, maybe like 6 months. And it took 18 months. And he had not his fault. There were things that delayed us along the way of the renovation of it. And also you get into it and you're like, well, if we're in there, we're going to do this. We should do that. Oh, while we're in there, let's do this. You know, it's like, wow, that doesn't make sense to tear that apart later, let's just do it now. The scope of it sort of expanded, but so it's interesting. So you're quoted 6 months essentially for the plane to be start to finish. Was there a guesstimate on price to where you're like, he's like, yeah, you buy it for 30 and maybe put like 50 in. And then 6 months later, you're.

"Was just for airplanes. The YouTube thing is a recent thing for me and is pretty separate from my cinematography career. It kind of started as a pandemic project a little bit. I mean, I started doing videos a little bit before that. I was seeing those other stuff on YouTube, aviation videos, and I thought, you know what? That would be really fun to do. It would be a way to sort of also keep the memories of our trips with my family. Like my first video is just my daughter and I going to big bear and I thought, man, let me just try this out and see, is it going to be fun to do? And part of it also is in my work. I'm shooting a lot of commercials and I'm shooting for clients and agencies and I'm basically doing all the stuff that they want. They're still some creative freedom. I still get to do interesting creative stuff. And it is fulfilling creatively. But it's not my stories, right? So and I sort of got into making movies as a kid to tell stories. I want to tell my own stories. So this was kind of a way that I could tell my own stories around something that I really enjoy and that I could share it with other people who are really passionate about it. So the community aspect of it and the creative freedom aspect of it kind of pulled me into it. And I started making a couple of little videos on YouTube and then the pandemic happened and I thought, man, our film business just shut down in March of 2020. And there was clear there wasn't going to be any work for at least a month or two solid. Just complete shutdown and I thought, I've got to stay creative. I've got to do stuff. I can't just sit around and watch Netflix. I've got to create things because that's what I do all the time. So I'm like, let me just put all my time into doing this because there's just nothing else I can do. I could do this. By myself and the airplane. So I started making just these videos with my family during that time and putting more time into it. And it was really fun. So now we're back to work and it's super fun to do it so I'm just going to continue on with it. Are you having trouble finding the time now? Now that you because like you said, as a pandemic project, you had all the time in the world to be expressing in your own expression opinion and not going to penny, but make your own videos and kind of have the freedom for it. But now you are back to your full-time job. Is it hard to do both? Or is it just kind of you created a good system and you're ready to go? Yeah, it's definitely hard to find time to do both. Fortunately, I work freelancing commercials and it's possible for me to have a few days off here and there. It's not just weekends off. In the beginning of January here was it's a little bit slower time like December and the beginning of January, things are just starting to ramp back up after the new year, so I've had like a week or two here where I can really crank capture a lot of content and crank out a lot of content, kind of stockpile it a little bit. So yeah, it's definitely a challenge to find the time. But as my kids also like, they're busier now with after school activities and high school and middle school that are a little bit older. So we're not doing as much stuff with them, which is a little bit sad. But they have a little bit of their own lives, right? I have a little bit more time to break away and do some of this stuff. So it's working out. As someone that's a cinematographer and does this for profession. That is an actual professional in making videos. The angles. You have the gear, the cameras, everything. When you were first watching YouTube videos, where you were like, oh my gosh, this is terrible. They don't understand angles. This is awful. I can do so much better or were you surprised at kind of want to say amateurism? Because this is their full-time job. But how good they are at telling stories and the product that was there? Yeah, I think definitely there's some stuff that I watch where I'm just like, oh man, I can't believe this is an acceptable, you know? Some videos I'm not specifically like deviation videos necessarily, but yeah, and then there's some things that they just don't have a story at all. I'm basically like, I think there's things on YouTube also that do really well that are not what I want to do. And I think there's always for any YouTube content creator. I think there's this constant like push and pull with the kind of stuff you want to make and the kind of stuff that is going to do well on this weird algorithm thing or that this particular audience is going to watch for a long time or be into. And because this particular project for me is really a passion project, it's not necessarily going to be like my livelihood or anything. I have a decently well established career that is doing great at super fun, but so I have the freedom to do hey, I'm just going to make the stuff that I want to make that I like, and I really hope people enjoy it. And that stuff is going to be like story based and it's going to have the production value that I wanted to have because I enjoy that I enjoy watching that kind of stuff and I enjoy making it. So yeah, I guess that's sort of digress from your original question, but yeah, I was surprised at how some of that stuff looks or is. But I still think I'm going to do what I'm going to do, you know? Yeah. So what you're saying, though, more importantly, is you're not going to purposely jump out of an airplane. And a parachute. Yeah. No, I'm definitely man. That is, that's crazy. That whole situation. I mean, I don't know if we want to go down that rabbit hole, but I will say as a content creator. And I posted on this on Instagram also. So it was like, as deviation content creators, we have a responsibility to portray aviation in a responsible way. In a way that reflects well on the community or the aviation community at large. And I take that really seriously and the kind of content that I do and try not to amp things up for clickbait or I have been accused which this seems crazy to me in comments of my YouTube videos. You're putting your family in danger on purpose for clicks. That's crazy to me. And I feel like I'm the opposite I try to really portray things like the decision making process, try to be responsible, try to encourage, hey, you got to if you can divert, if divert is fine, I have a no go decision like these are normal parts of aviation. I want to show that because that's the truth, you know? Yeah. And I don't really want to talk about the whole situation with I can't remember his name, which is probably a good thing. But I want to talk about the trap that you can get in. It sounds like you're pretty, you actually have a good system and you have the other job. So you know you're not constantly. You like the views. You want the views. It's great getting the views. But if you want a video doesn't do as well, I'm sure you don't lose too much sleep at night. Where other people, this is what they want. They want to be a YouTuber. This is all they want to do. What would you recommend for someone that has over a 100,000 followers and subscribers on YouTube that has a good platform that has a brand that has built this, how do you avoid that trap, especially in aviation when like you said, you have to be responsible because people are watching what you do, even if it's slightly against maybe your SOPs or other SOPs or just the freedom of aviation and looks bad. Other people tend other people might watch that and go try to do that as well because they saw you do it, they might think it's okay. So like you said you have a responsibility. What would you say to someone to avoid that trap and avoid the clickbait game in aviation? Yeah, I don't know. I would say I guess just be true to yourself because when it's all done at the end of the day, you look back and it's like you want to make sure that you have integrity and true to yourself the whole time you are doing things for other people. I think it also that..

Ammunition today's episode is with Eric from SoCal flying monkey, he is one of my favorite YouTube channels, and he has the most amazing Cherokee 6. And he has a sweet video that everyone should watch. Whether you want to do aviation content or not, but buying a Cherokee 6 or $30,000 and how he fixed it up. It's amazing. You obviously can't do that in this market right now. But anyways, Eric is on the podcast. He is a great story. We talk about just the mentality of being a YouTuber. Why he didn't get into aviation earlier and why it took him an extra 15 years on how he stepped back a little bit from his first try at aviation. So even I hope you enjoyed today's episode.

Any further ado, here's Eric from SoCal flying monkey. Eric, what's going on, man, welcome to the pie at the pilot podcast. How's it going? Oh, man. Thanks for having me. Yeah, thanks for coming on. We kind of talked a little before, but short notice you are the first one back from the babymoon. I don't know what to call it. My time off. So as I said, you might have to carry the load here if I found myself stumbling to feel free to run with it and you can start doing whatever you want. I will do my best and congratulations on your baby, super exciting. I appreciate it. That's enough about me, enough about the baby. Let's talk about you. Why aviation? I guess we'll get in that little bit more to that later, but just overall why did you want to be a pilot? Was this a lifelong goal? Was this something that you turned 30 or 40 and you're just like, boom, I want to be a pilot. Yeah, so I'm not sure why, that's a great question, and I'm always trying to think about that and people ask me how I got started. And I'm not totally sure, but I do know that when I was a teenager, my cousin had a piper. I think it was like a twin Comanche. He was actually based in Argentina and we went to visit him. And he took me for a flight in it. And I remember really liking it. But I wasn't like, oh, I've got to do this, but I guess I thought like, yeah, this would be something cool to do eventually. And then later on in my 20s, my career was starting to click and things were going well and I thought, maybe I should try to fly for some reason it just sort of popped into my head. I was like, oh, that looks really cool. I want a new adventure. So yeah, I started flying and then didn't finish up, got married, had kids ran out of money, never finished it and then 15 years later. I was kind of sitting on the couch one day. My kids were out off at camp and my wife was visiting her family. Out of state. I was by myself over the summer. And I just thought, man, I can do this now. So I got back into it and finished up and got my private pilot. It was great. What do you say to people? Because you're not alone. I guarantee you if you're outside and you pull a bunch of people, you're going to find a lot of people want to be a pilot or would love the opportunity to fly. But one that can't find time to just doesn't make sense financially. But you kind of ran into that. And you overcame that 15 years later. What do you say someone that is going through that right now that has the opportunity to either go fly or not fly and they're trying to make that decision? Would you tell them to push on or is it important to do it when it's right when the finances are there when the timing is right? I would say try to find a way to make aviation part of your life because there are so many ways to make it happen and there are affordable ways I know there's like if you're a young person, there's a aviation explorers and there's all kinds of organizations that will help you get started. There's scholarships, and then there's also affordable ways to fly. It's always who you know. So you meet the right people, somebody's got a plane. You need to see if I was going to help you out or whatever. And if you can make aviation a part of your life, it just fulfills and enriches so much. So I say go for it. I kind of regret giving up on it. It's not that I gave up, so easily, but rightly so prioritize my family and that's important. But I think I could have probably made aviation part of my life the whole time going on. Maybe not finished up with a private palette, but just taking a lesson every now and then and challenge myself in that way. So I think make it happen for yourself. People think a lot of times flying financially so out of reach. And it's not a cheap hobby, but as an example, I had a piper Cherokee one 80 and I sold it to a group of 5 friends who were splitting the purchase price and splitting the operating cost. And when you break it down, I think you could probably own and operate an airplane like that for like 200 bucks a month between 5 people. So it can be somewhat affordable. Yeah, but you've got to find 5 people that you're for other people you can trust with your airplane, right? You got to find for like minded people. And that's a big challenge. But I think if you're a tenacious and you stick with it and you really want to do it, you can make it happen, especially now you know you've got all the type forms on the Internet, all the Facebook groups, I think it's easier to connect with people who have similar interests. So what was it that actually changed? Why 15 years later did you determine this is finally the right time for you to go fly? I think my kids were off at camp, so I wasn't as busy with them in that particular moment. And I had saved up a lot of money over the last 15 years and my career was pretty well established and much more on track and I think those set of circumstances just sort of came together. And made me realize, hey, I can actually do this now. I can make it happen. So let's go for it. And then I never look back. What was it about that time that you were able to push through? Because you wait 15 years and you go do it again, there's still things that try to pull you away. I guess what I'm trying to get at is just like, how did you mentally say this is the time I'm actually going to do this and push through all the adversity to that game? Because I'm guessing you didn't become any less busy. Family didn't come less important to you. Your other priorities didn't change, but you actually found the way to make this work in your life. Yeah, that's really that's really insightful. Yeah, what changed? I guess it was like, I was happy doing what I was doing, but I was wanting something more. I was searching for that another challenge in my life. Not that work hadn't become challenging. Work is there's always new challenges in work and I'm always trying to step up my game. With my cinematography work, professionally, but I think I just was craving a new adventure and a new challenge. It's not like life was just monotonous and boring because it wasn't, but I just wanted that extra bit of fulfillment. I think some part of me knew that I had experienced a lot of that feeling of challenge achievement and fulfillment in.

"What the law said so. Jesus was sort of on the horns of a dilemma. The way he handled this is quite interesting is he. He used it as an opportunity to show. God's forgiveness in god's mercy now. I don't know what kind of girl this was. She was probably a pretty loose girl. Maybe she had a reputation for being easy and sleazy you know and so here she was now the consequences of that might have another woman that jesus talked to walsall was immoral. We call her the woman at the well she'd been married and divorced five times living in with the guy that moment and jesus came to her. She was drawing one from the well and he said if you drink of this water you'll thirds again. What if you drink the water i give. You'll never thirst again. He was using that well and her water pot as a metaphor for life. He was saying in effect girl. Let me tell you something. You're never gonna find satisfaction in relationships. With men you're never gonna find fulfillment in sets. You could broaden that statement you're never gonna find the fulfillment you're seeking in accomplishments or in a career oriented possessions or anything else. If you drink this water you'll thirsty. this girl. the woman that well was always looking for that right guy. Oliver printers turned into frogs. Heard about an old guy that was out fishing through his line in the water is waiting for a bike. He heard a voice saying hey you take me up. Looked around. Didn't see anyone who said that just went back to fish in the voice again. Hey you pick me up. The man lives down in there. Floating in the water was a little frog and the frog set for the third time. Hey you pick me up and kiss me. And i'll turn into a beautiful woman and all your friends will envy you so the old guy reached down. This is a true story by the way so the old guy reached down picked up. The little frog started to put it in his pocket. And the front setting you crazy. I just told you if you kiss me. I'll turn into a beautiful woman. You'll be the envy of all of your friends. Your guys age. I'd rather have a talking frog. So the woman at the well would fall in love with the guy. He'd get what he want from her. Probably sets the dumper. Listen to this men. Give love to get women. Give sets to get lucky guy says if you love you'll have sex with the that guy is a loser. Don't go any further guys in king and country were saying about that but she was used and abused by men back to this woman here con in the act of adultery. She was probably feeling the same way she wasn't happy. I heard about a brooklyn couple. That host a self-help radio program called the pursuit of happiness on the show. This husband and wife team would offer colors advice. And how to lead happier lives encouraging them to think positively and trust servant but apparently this couple. They were the ones who needed help because they both committed suicide. I guess they didn't find that happiness. They were pursuing. Have you ever contemplated suicide. A paris jackson daughter of michael jackson attempted suicide in june of this year. She swallowed an entire bottle of motion and also a risk thankfully. She failed before her suicide attempt. Paris jackson reached out to a one point. One million twitter followers with a series of desperate messages and one of them quoted the beatles song yesterday and she wrote in her tweet yesterday. All my troubles team so far away now. It looks as though they're here to stay in that she did that. Suicide attempt listen peres. Jackson lost her earthly father. She needs to know there was a father in heaven who loves her and you need to know their father in heaven. Who loves you too. Maybe your father walked down you. He abandon you. i never had a father. I never had a dad in my life. For the most part. I read an interesting story in the newspaper about a rich heiress who has raised in the very lap of luxury. She hung out with other heiresses. Like paris and nicky hilton. Well other girls are playing with ken and barbie dolls. She was dressy up for real. She got her first baggage ten at eleven. She was wearing snakeskin pumps and at sixteen she had her own luxury car at eighteen she got breast implants to posted. I got whatever. I want it. That is except stable family and a loving father seeing all this rich heiress wanted with the love of her father. She never got her. Life began to unravel. He got into drinking got into drugs looking for purpose and meaning in her life. She loved dogs and thought of them her babies carrying them around twelve thousand. Hermes birkin bag. She partied hard and drink and drugs to ease their pain. She thought having a baby would satisfy so she went on and adopted the baby when they decided to take that baby to her father's home and introduce him to his grandchild and she pulled in the driveway. She was met by our fathers new girlfriend who turned her away and the rich young heiress said.

I need god that ten commandments. What are they have no other gods before. Don't make any graven images. Honor your father and mother don't lie don't steal don't commit adultery.

There are some listening that may have broken all of the commandments. even murder. Don't say you're one of those people that are freak out people around you okay. But i want to tell you this even if you killed someone god would forgive you see. There was a thief on the cross. Remember when jesus was true there was a man in each side of them. We call them the thieves. The word in the greek speaks of a serious criminal so he was probably a murderer guilty of capital crime. So here's jesus saying the crossing. Christ says father forgive them for they know not what they do is first statement from the cross of calvary. This man turns to jesus as criminal. Probably what the romans would consider a terrorist says. Lord remember me when you come into your kingdom. And jesus says truly truly i say to you. Today you will be with me in paradise. Listen to me no matter what sin you have committed. God will forgive you tonight. You'll ask for his forgiveness. Noticed seasons said. Today you will be in paradise. How long does it take to become a christian. Sometimes people say i'm in the process of converting in the process. You're either a believer. You're not a believer. It doesn't take years to become a christian. it doesn't take months to become a christian. It doesn't take days. it doesn't even take hours. You can believe in. Jesus just like that. It's happened for some of you already. You just have started to believe in this young man said jesus. I've kept all of these commenced ever since i've been a young boy and i love what the bible says it says. Jesus looked at him and loved him. It would've made more sense that we read. Jesus smacked him said would you. Talking about willis. Hugh have thought. There might be somebody here that i've kept all the commandments. I looked by the ten commandments. what are they. I'm not sure. But i do keep them. I read recently. That a survey was done in more. People knew the names of the four beatles than the commandments given by god for mount sinai john. Paul george ringo. They know that they don't know these comments. We've all broken the commandments. Because love this young man. And god loves you. I want you to know that there is a god in heaven who loves you a gun in heaven who has a plan for your life a god in heaven who lungs for a relationship with you. What is god like. Jesus sold a story. That's often called the parable of the prodigal side. It's a story of a father who had two sons. I'm a father. I have two sons and one of the sons ran away from home loose paraphrase. He said data. I'm tired of all your rules or regulations. I wanna just live my life any laugh a lot of money and when he hit tony it'll on a new friends too but as soon as the money ran out the friends ran out with it and one day. That boy had in a piffle. Any realize this sucks. This life is miserable. I had better back home with dad so the boy said i'm gonna go home to my father and i'm gonna say father i no longer worthy. Db culture santus. Give me a job. Like one of the hired hands and the father seen the boy a great way off caught up and ran to the boy and threw his arms around him and kissed him again and again. It's let's have a party break out the barbecue. This my son was dead is alive. Again he lost is found and they rejoice. So what is this about. This is a picture of god. We're like the prodigal son or product daughter. We walk away from god. We don't want to live by what the bible says we realize how empty life without chem so you say how would god regattas bikindi him. Tonight he would welcome you with open arms and say welcome home daughter. Welcome home side. Well this kid you know he. He didn't he didn't want to give up by the way. Jesus never told any other person to get rid of all their stuff. He just said it to this guy. And i think it's because this young man was possessed by possessions that was in effect his god. That's what jesus said to kim. But sometimes people ask the question. If i become a christian while i have to give anything up. I'm going to be honest with you. The answer is yes. Yes give up your emptiness and replace it with fulfillment give up your misery and replace it with forgiveness up. Hell traded for heaven. That's god's trading -til for you. Yes there is enough for line. And according to the bible there are two destinations in the afterlife. Heaven or hell. I kind of liked everything until you said hell how could it. God of love send someone. Listen to me. god doesn't send anyone to help. That's why he sent. Jesus christ diana cross in absorbed god's judgment in your place so you don't have to go there you see if you end up in hell you'll have no one to blame but yourself. In that final day you'll have to practically climb over jesus to get their c. s. lewis the great writer once said and i quote the gates of hell are locked from the inside so we have to make a choice. You choose in this life where you will spend the afterlife you choosing this life if you wanna find meaning and purpose in life or if you don't you choose in this life if you wanna go to heaven or if you want to go to help i know some of you have come here with skepticism.

Got my hands in these and we searched the finally ended. The chair i found the missing piece life can be that way. We do all the things we think we should do. We have all of our ducks in a row. We evolved the boxes check. But we're still empty. We're still lonely or still filled with fear innings. So what is missing. It's not as something. It's a someone you need caught in your life. You need jesus in your life title. My message is what you're really looking for what you're really looking for. you know. Sooner or later everybody gets around to asking the big questions of life such as what is the meaning of my life. Why am i here on this hurt. Why do i exist. And what should my purpose in life be. And that's because as human beings we all have a desire to make a mark to achieve something we want our lives to count for something greater than ourselves and that's because god wired us that way we're pre wire for something more it goes back to your childhood. You're always wanting that something more when you're a little kid maybe a toy. Let me get a little older and it changes. What does that expression. The only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys right. Oh this relationship will do it. We think oh this degree might do it. Or maybe this how i do it or this experience or whatever it is and we see can we search and that's why people seek after fame. They're saying i want to be noticed. Listen you are noticed. Your noticed by god your loved by god and your life can have significance. The bible says god is put eternity in our hearts. I'll tell you what that is deep down inside of you you're yearning for god that's really what you may not have known that it's good that you're really looking for we've found were. You shouldn't look we heard from rockstar alice. Cooper my friend darrell strawberry. They talked about how empty those things were. So where do you find. The answer is two thousand years old and guess where you find the answer. Find it and this book called the bible behavioral he i b l e basic instructions before leaving earth. This is the user's manual of life. You've been looking for people aren't searching everywhere probably somewhere in their house. There's a dusk. Colored bible dust covered bible waiting to be opened with the answers. I wanted to tell you a bible story who wants to hear a bible story. Raise your hand. It's really cool for the first time in a harvest crusade. I can actually see the people. I'm talking to because i'm a little bit closer than normal. This is a story of a wealthy affluent man. He's often referred to as the rich young ruler so to be a ruler beck and biblical times. You have to be at least learning. So he's young so he's his young thirties. He's a fluent probably bmw charrier. He comes to jesus. He's holding a lavender low-fat own milk. Latin what is with the lavender. Where did that come from. Lavender lottie house with a guy the other day. I won't say his name. Ben and we're ordering lot as i said i'll have a cappuccino. Someone else says coffee. And finn says i'll ever lavender low-fat oatmeal lots. I'm like seriously dude. He enjoyed it. So jesus and this a fluent young have a conversation. What jesus says to this young man sell applies to young men and young women. Today applies to all people today. Matthew nineteen we read these words. Someone came to jesus with this question. T- terp what good thing must i do to have eternal life. She's said why do you ask me what is good only got is good but to answer your question if you want to receive eternal life. Keep the commandments. And the young man said ones. Jesus said you shall not murder adultery. You should not testify falsely or light on your father and mother. Love your neighbor as yourself. The young man said. I've obeyed all of these commandments. What else must idea all right. Jesus said i want you to sell everything that you have give them money to the poor treasure in heaven and then you can come and follow me. Listen to this. Young men heard that he went away sad because he had many possession. So i'll stop there so something was missing in this life. He says were. Can i find eternal. would we need to do to get eternal life. Jesus says keep the commandments. Now why did jesus point this young man to the ten commandments. Because by keeping the commandments. You closer.

Now come home to your father in joined the family of god. I encourage you to do that. So meanwhile back home. I almost think of it as a ranch.

"Three party and the reporter said sir tell us. What does this secret of being married to the same person for fifty years the manson. Well sir let me tell you. It goes back to our honeymoon. We went to the grand canyon. And i didn't know my wife all while at that point but we're riding along those little donkeys on a very narrow little path and and she was in front of being. I can see her there and her little donkey stumbled a little bit on the path and she leaned forward and said very firmly in the donkeys there. That's once thought. Whoa what's that all about. So he says we went a little bit further under donkey stumbled once again and she leaned forward instead of the donkeys air. That's twice how what's this all about. Finally go few more feed into donkey stumbled through a third time. She reaches into our first pulls out a pistol holds it up to the donkey said fires donkey. Trump's dead right on the spot husband says what are you doing. That's horrible that's cruel. Why would you do to the donkey. She turned him. It said. that's one. That's the secret to along hair. That's how some people see. God man if i slip up providing something wrong god's to say that's one that i'm gonna mess your life. Nothing could be further from the truth. What does godlike. We'll according to. Jesus god he's like a father that loves us deeply. He's like a father who when we leave him misses us and longs for our return. The story that jesus told is often referred to as the parable of the prodigal son. Here's the story from christ himself amendment two sons. The younger son said to his father. I want my share of your estate now instead of waiting until you die so. The father agreed to divide his wealth between the sons. A few days later he's younger. Son packed all of his belongings and took a trip to a distant land wasted. All of his money on wildly. Living about that time is money ran out a great famine swept over the land and to began to star. He persuaded the local farmer to hire kim to feed the pig. The man became so hungry that even the food that the pigs reading began to look good to him but no one gave him anything so as the story begins we have a boy who's tired of living at home. It was an a fluent home as we'll find out later. The ad servants there it seems to be a loving home what we see that. The father welcomed his son home and kissed him. So i don't really think there was anything wrong with this home. This boy is was tired of rules and regulations the bright lights of the big city. We're calling and he wanted to experience everything at this world had to offer it was a restlessness. I want to go on and try the stuff. That's what he did and he went on and found for himself how empty life can be. This is a story that jesus tells that shows us being like this boy running from god but notice how the father didn't say you're not going anywhere son. Because i know you're going to mess it up. I know you're going to waste your money. I know you're gonna ruin your life. I'm not going to let you go. No he said okay. Son go ahead. Guess what god has given. You called a free. Will he loves you so much. He will not force you to believe in him. He will not force you to love kim. If you want to go you can go. And many people do and they run from god and this boy said all of his money ahmad living bet. He was popular when he get down. Can you imagine how many friends he had all that money. But as soon as the money ran out the friends ran out with it. Story of two buddies went camping in the woods is they were getting up for the first cup of coffee. The rustling in the bushes and coming at them at full speed was a very large bear and one of the friends started a pull on his running shoes. It is funny said. You don't think you can outrun that bear to you. His friend said. I don't need to outrun the bear. I need to outrun you. Tell a lot of so called. Friends are the run out when times. Get hard this boy hit bottom. Maybe you've hit bottom. Maybe you've been reaping the results of stupid things that you've done you got a dui arrest. Your girlfriend got pregnant. Your marriage fell apart. Things have been so bad. You've even thought about suicide. God wants you to live and more than just exist. He has a life worth living for you alive with purpose and meaning and i hope you'll put your faith in jesus christ tonight. The prodigal son started out high on the hog and he ended up hanging out with the haw pretty lame. But that's sin for you. It promises freedom but it brings slavery it promises success but it brings failure it promises life but ultimately it brings death it promises pleasure but ultimately it brings misery. Have you figured that out yet. Have you seen how empty life is without god. This boy did. He came to his senses. Jesus continues on insists. He finally came to he said to himself. Hey even hired. Men have put enough to spare back at home in here. I am dying of hunger. I'm gonna go to my father. I'm gonna say father. I've sinned against heaven in you. I no longer worthy to be called your son. Just take me on. His hired hand appoint woke up and he smelled the costume. This this this is ridiculous. I'm gonna go back home again. At least the guys at work from dead. Have it better than i have it right now. He realized what he was experiencing was his own fall. No a lot of times in life. We want to blame everyone. We have trouble at home. It's the fault of your parents trouble at school. It's the fault of the teachers trouble of work. It's a fault of your boss jeffers. You're the problem the down inci. It's you you say greg.

I came from a dysfunctional family and on the head of a defunct journal family. All dysfunctional world messed up. We're all sinners. What are you going to just take responsibility and say it's my fall. This is why it's happened. The bible says the heart is wicked and deceitful. Who can really know how bad it is.

But i have to admit they're happy too bad they can't be cynical angry and mad like me and then i thought for sai. What if the christians are right now. They aren't of course.

"I don't want to talk about it. Let's start with a word of prayer now father. We've had a lot of fun. It's been a lot of worship. Now we're gonna say speak to our hearts because the words we are going to be looking at are your words and if people will respond to the right way what we're about to see their eternal address can be changed from hell to heaven. Lord i pray that will be so. I pretty that many will come to believe in. Jesus christ tonight so blessed now is your word goes out may not return boy we have in. Jesus name amen. Amen heard a story about a man who went to israel vacation with his wife and his very difficult to deal with ever nagging mother-in-law well sadly as mother-in-law died while they were in the holy land. They were trying to figure out what to do with her body. And so this man went to a local mortuary was asking about shipping or body back to the united states. And the undertaker said. We'll sir that will cost you five thousand dollars. But i'll tell you what we can vary your mother-in-law here in the holy land for one hundred fifty dollars off the men and thought about it for a while and said i'm going to shipper back to the united states. The undertaker said sir. I don't understand this is the holy land. Why would you not want to bury karen. Plus it's such a good deal and the man said we'll sir a long time ago a man was buried here and three days later. He rose from the dead. I can't take that chance. Apologies to all of you. Mothers-in-law there. You're all wonderful. But you know we joke about things like that. And i think it's because many people are very uncomfortable with the topic of that. We tried to not discuss it. You know an insurance agent who selling life insurance. We'll see something like we'll if you happen to that. If i think i'm buying this policy in a matter of if it's only a matter of when we won't even use the d. word we'll come up with other terms we'll say well someone is passed on are. There are no longer with us that we might use the medical terminology they expire. We might mask our discomfort with the topic by saying things like well. They bit the dust or they cast in their chips or they kicked the bucket that because there's a big discomfort in our culture today to talk about the reality of death. But i wanted to know in ancient times. It wasn't that way. They thought about it a lot. Maybe because the death rate was higher at that time people would die at a younger eight. I don't know if the death rate was higher think. The death rate is the same in every generation. One out of every one person's will die right so but They didn't have the luxury of long life like we might have today. So ancient merchants often wrote the words. Memento morigh over their accounting books in large letters momentum. I and those words meant think of what keep things in perspective. You're not gonna live forever but that's not the way. It is an art culture and someone raises. The topic will say. I don't want to talk about that. My mom was that way you saw a little bit in this opening video images of my beautiful mother. She was raised in a christian home. They went to church twice a week of the classical prodigal daughter and ran from god. She became a full blown alcoholic. She was married into four seven times and head a lot of boyfriends inbetween. And in fact one of those little flings long beach she conceived a child out of wedlock. His name was greg. That would be me so she did not raise me in a christian home. I lived in the opposite of a christian home. Home could not have been more non-christian than it was searching at an early point in my life for the meaning of life. You see and. I had to crawl fats. The ripe old age of seventeen was asking questions like what is the meaning of my life. What's going to happen after. I die and i heard the message of the gospel. Like you're to hear tonight on the front lawn of my high school campus in newport beach california. I heard it. In a way that i understood and an opportunity was given to put my faith in christ and i did it and i'm going to give you that same opportunity tonight. Well i wanted to reach my mom. So i began to share that with her. She said. I don't wanna talk about it. As the years passed. I would bring up the subject of the meaning of life. And the afterlife shelby said. I don't wanna talk about it. She said it over and over again. And now it's the years of calm by life taken. Its toll on my mom. They're hard drinking and smoking and partying. Her body was giving out. She was having to get dialysis every week. One day i felt really impressed by the lord to go over to our house and have the conversation about her soul. I said to my wife. I feel really led by god. She said go do it. So i went over to my mom's house. I said mom. I need to talk to you. We sat down at the kitchen table. I said i wanna talk to you about your soul. she said. i don't want to talk about it. I said mom today. We're going to talk about it. And i'm glad we had that conversation because that resulted in her making a recommitment to jesus. Christ how is. I didn't know that one month later. She would die but i know she's in heaven tonight and i know that i'll see her again. So here's the thing. I want to have that conversation with you tonight that i had with my mom. Many years ago. I wanted to talk to you about eternity. My friend. pink. Frank story is in heaven tonight as you know he died late last year and frank would lead us some fair over the many years here on friday night and we miss him so and i know his family even misses him more but the good news is is frank was ready to go. He was ready to meet the lord. Are you what if this were your last night. I'm planet her. Are you confident that you would go to heaven. Say well. I'm a good person. So i think i'll address that and a few moments. Listen only those who are prepared to die a really ready to live. The bible says prepare to meet your god. I wanna talk to you tonight about how to be prepared and not trying to be sensationalist it. I'm not trying to freak you out. I'm just dealing with the reality. Because someone's name is going to be in that obituary column tomorrow. You say well. it won't be me. How would you know that.

I would expect a bosco really to roll wonder if j. sarah's going to are they going to get their first touchdown in this game. Are they going to get any points. They just lost to santa margherita forty to nothing. They lost the previous week to monitor fifty two to three. This could be pretty ugly Saint john bosco. Is you know. I think these both these teams have a pretty good Healthy relationship. They've always talked very highly of each other. They've had some pretty memorable games over the years. I feel like you know coach harlow and coach negro. And there's there's been some player movement between j sarah and bosc over the years. These guys seem to like each other. But i think it's could be very lopsided. What's your take on this game. Yeah much like the modern day game. I think this was going to be over for blink as tough as that is sounds data. We know jason has happy defense. You know they you know law but they just have to hope they make bosco hernan on both sides of the ball on you know and i think you'll see maybe a lot of kids for bosco. You know played. that haven't been played. Go the last couple of games. I think the but they've been boxes some so kids. Have you know that usually get to play played. So you know maybe you'll get to see some of those kids in that game are but Yeah there's not much more we can say on this one that we already don't know it's going to be a big Bosco blowout just a matter of you know. There's obvious can. I expect the running clock and we'll see what the final score is you know Come saturday afternoon. I want to ask you. One thing about jay. Sarah scotty so i do a top twenty five rankings. I know you fall orange. County football Also extremely close. And i rank saint john i. I ran j. sarah twelfth and orange county so just outside of my top ten. This week i want your opinion. I got just for some contents. For people at la habra. Who's three no at number ten just to give a little perspective harbor. A lot of people know the hog the highlanders real good competitive program. Well they did win in one of their games in overtime this year against fullerton which who is improved but there's a harbor team that went to overtime with fullerton. So i got him a ten in the county and fourteen had some real golden opportunities in overtime. They fumbled the two yard line and They were playing double overtime. Maybe that was enough to. Maybe they would've won. That game had thought they had chances to win that game. So i have highlanders ten than i have san juan hills which is to Looking pretty they wanna shoot out against capital valley. Last week They're the defending division for champs. Know they're in the south coast league now. They came up from the sea view league. That's you know san juan hills. I have second. I mean a eleventh then. I come to j. sarah. At twelve twelve owen to we've documented them and then thirteen fourteen to sora which is rebuilding group had pretty Pretty nice victory last week. i think they beat They've also been at least viejo at least in a gal and there's capital valley. There's putting up some big points against san clemente in san juan hills. They got a pretty good dynamic offense. But i just wanted to ask you sky do do i have it right with jay. Sarah twelve should they be higher. Should they be lower as i give you some of the contents of the teams around them. You know dan. I thought about this too our earlier. And at as much as i hate to say this i think jay sarah should actually be a local lower They're actually believe more on par maybe on the even level as as to sora nowadays. That's how you know. I don't think he can college. Sarah trinity league team right now with the team. They have you know if they played it in san juan hills. That would be a good game. You know or even you know what i hate to say. This is crazy against large horns heads you know they may have struggled with it upfront but mean they had some athletes that you know that would give you know jay sarah some some issue You know people that's crazy but that's kind of j. Sarah really is so. I would probably i would say maybe be doubt in the fifteen sixteen area you know until they can start to show that they're going to get back out of that But i sometimes. I know these ratings are there. They give a little bit based off of what they've done. What they bid you know in even with with what they have. And i don't have much coming back either. They don't have any any skills in doubt in the lower levels you know. Pick pickup transfers but Before what they are right now. That's it's it's tough to say but that's what the reality is why. I'm obviously given the line. Some respect for you know what they're playing and i i also think about you know so they Forty to nothing against santa margarita. How to soro and orange. Capito do against santa margarita. Would that be a similar score would would would. J loses fifty two to three. What would those teams do in the oranges the to sorrows and you know who to sorrel oranges the teams how they would do against modern day. I still think it would. It would be the same. Be honest with you. They may complete in the other thing about j. sarah's that they just don't have any athletes of quarterbacks from new i mean capital got the he's got some receiver so they may be able to do a little bit much more. You know as far as their lineman go. That's the you know. I mean they're they got a couple of guys that are you know they have mercy. They got the center They got a couple of guys that are up there. That probably capitals guys outweigh you know. So that's that's maybe the little thing that jason for may have up on. But i still think that if you played you know the jason arrogance Catholicos it. it'd be competitive for them. But i pretty much it. They would pretty much the same score. Those guys played. You know it'll in in. This is the tricky thing too. You know doing these rankings. Sarah their scores going gonna look horrible this week again as we predict against bosco. I'm not going to get any good material. And we're gonna get a better idea about j. seren word a income after bosko bosco puts up six year. Seventy god forbid more. Are we going to see any more at j. sarah. Maybe the next week against servite You that's going to be a tough game. Survives can be coming on a plane modernization bosco. Maybe that score will be something of revelation but but it will be a heavy favorite We're really not going to get a good idea about j. sarah. I believe until the last week of the season So i got two more two more rankings. When until they play solution to get a better idea of them. So we'll see if i go with with scotties opinion on that one but you can see this. Comparison is when you're when they're outmatch. It's a little bit tough to to get some good data scotty..

"Tell me about what you're doing on twitch weird man. It's great i love it. When quarantine for star started everyday was the same day. I was in pajamas half the time. It was just like walking around. in sweats. like wasn't depressed but it was just like everything is the same so when i started streaming effectively because it created like structure so i stream i started then and i still do stream five days a week. A stream weekdays ten to noon or one ish and that was a nice like it was a nice way to be like. Oh i've got like you know. I've got my weekdays now i'm not streaming today. I know it's saturday. It's just a stupid thing. And i got to us. Really dig in with this space and get creative and get weird which is part of the most fun part of it is doing stuff you go. I didn't even know that was a weird idea. That was fun to do and all last year is getting. I was getting faster. And faster and faster in terms of making a track. And then i realized that the end of last year like how do i do. Now that i've done this for a while and starting to get a little bit burnt. It like i wanted to do something different with it and i decided early on my wouldn't do vocals because i think that would burn me out so it's just making instrumentals and then i realized i could since i live on twitch and there's anywhere between i don't know like a thousand and i think we peaked at like almost thirty thousand people watching at one time i wanted to do something to like. Enhance the channel and give back to the people that have been watching so i started taking fans submissions of vocalists and songs. 'cause i just realized looking instagram and looking at tiktok like there's so many good artists out there who have no following. They've got like you know. Six hundred people following them and they're actually very good and so. I just started taking submissions from those people. That i let i called. I mean you'll get this joke right away. I started calling the shots the a an army. So it's like it's like nine hundred people whose job it is to go find me the best stuff and they do they go they go and find the good stuff and they bring it to me. And they're like the more they say the more they shout like. Look at this one. Look at this one. I know it's pretty good so cool. Yeah and so. I've been i do two to three starting like a couple of weeks ago. I've been able to do two to three brand new songs all in a morning. Probably like a stream. And a half. I get a song done from scratch till i finished and i sent him. Something effectively like mixed and mastered so incredible that they can release so fun man. It's really really fun. And the fans. I mean you can imagine how excited they are right and some of the cases what i what. I haven't talked to the fans on the channel about actually on telling you about. This is that i will reach out to somebody and say. Hey that thing you posted on tiktok or instagram was really cool. Would you want me to produce it. And i say that. Because they've used the hashtag they've used shinoda produce me as the hashtag so they've they've raised their hand and said i want my to produce me. I hit them on the. Dmz say you want me to produce and they always say yes and then half the time they say. I haven't finished the song though. Like the thing i posted is verse and a chorus and i don't have a second verse. I don't have a bridge or any you know middle aged or whatever anything else and so. It's like okay. Well like take your time. Don't rush. Because i want you to be. I want you to submit something you love because like the whole ideas for you to get to more people than you've already got to so give me something great and when it's ready than send it to me and i and generally if it's if it's somebody in that scenario i find that they'll get back to me within like three or four days. And what are they usually get back to you with a more expanded same demo but with all the parts. Yeah it's usually like a we. Transfer link or something like that with multi tracked vocals and i always tell them like. I'll tell them like speed it up like to this bpm or whatever or i'll tell the make shirts and you're like very best range. It sounded low to me but up to you. And then i can and they can go crazy on the on the the Overdoses and harmonies and background book. Whatever else they wanna do they do but they do that. Before the trackers before there's a track is that correct. Yeah before there's a there's a trap so what you get is basically finished vocal stems for a song. Yeah i menu start from scratch. You take it as an acapella. Yeah and you build music to support whatever that is. Yeah do you remember when we were doing. A thousand suns together. Yup that at the end of that record before the first single the catalyst was the single on that record before the single came out so no fan had heard the song we released pieces of stems to that song and we told them take these pieces. Make a song out of them. We didn't give them enough to know what the song even was. We just take pieces and make a song out of it. And whoever's thing is the coolest to us we're gonna put you on our record on the album itself and we ended up putting them on. I think it was when When they come from me was the song we put them on but we chose it based on who is like as i recall beginning some of this wrong but as i recall it was like we gave them pieces to remix but they'd never heard the song they were remixing so i called it like the pre mix like they just they had to just assume the song and that's how i feel like there's something to that something about that the release this where it's like. I don't know what you're thinking. Your song is. But here's what i hear just based on that vocal on a grid socal. It's fun man. Superfund that thousand sons is is my favorite of the things we worked on together. That's my favorite. Just because i feel like it really is it. Felt like the beginning of something new and something new and really good. We didn't like the the the record before it minutes to midnight was the whole effort. The whole when are we first met. You asked the band. What are you guys envision doing with this album like y y are we talking like what do you wanna do and we all said like we want to. We wanted to redefine the identity. The banning the whole point was to make something that didn't sound like the stuff that people that are here because albums went in two so similar. And you're like great. That's exactly how i feel. And he's you said. I don't know if i would want to work with the band if you didn't feel that way so it's great. We're all on the same page and we just kind of hit it off from there
Keith Morrison reads Dr. Seuss How The Grinch Stole Christmas
"How the grinch stole christmas by dr seuss. Every who down in whoville light. Christmas a lot but the grinch live just north of veal did not the grinch hated christmas whole christmas season. Please don't ask why no one quite knows. The reason it could be as head wasn't screwed on just right it could be. Perhaps his shoes are too tight. But i think that the most likely reason of all may have been that. His heart was two sizes too small. Whatever the reason is hard or shoes. He stood there on christmas eve. Hating the who's staring down from his cave with a sour grinchey frown. The warm lighted windows below on the town for he knew every who down in whoville beneath was busy now hanging mistletoe wreath and they're hanging stockings. E snarled with a sneer. Tomorrow is christmas it practically here. Then he growled with his grinch figures nervously drumming. I must find some way to stop christmas from a main for tomorrow. He knew all the who girls and boys would wake brighton early. They'd rush for their toys and then whole the noise show the noise. Doi's noise noise. That's one thing. He hated the noise. Noise noise noise. Then the who's young and old would sit down to a feast. And they feast on they feast and they feast. Feast feast feast. They would feast on who pudding and rare who rose beast which was something that grinch couldn't stand in the least and then they do something he liked. Leashed all every who down in whoville. The tall and this mall would stand close together with christmas bells ringing. They'd stand hand in hand and who's would start singing. They'd sing sing sing. sing sing. Sang and the more the grinch thought of the who christmas saying the more the grinch thought. I must stop this whole thing. Why for fifty three years. I've put up with it now. I'm must stop christmas from coming. But how then he got an idea. An awful idea the grinch gonna wonderful off idea. I know just what to do. The grinch laughed in his throat and he made a quick santa claus hat and a coat and he chuckled and clucked. What a great grinchey trick with this code in this hat. I'll look just like saint. Nick all i need a reindeer. The grinch looked around but since reindeer are scarce there were none to be found. Did that stop the old grinch. No the grinch simply said if. I can't find a reindeer make quan instead. So he called his dog max then. He took some red thread and he tied bighorn on the top of his head. Then he loaded some bags and symbols empty sacks on a ramshackle sleigh and he hitched up old. Max then the grinch said got up and the slaves started down toward the homes. Where the who's they snooze in their town all their windows were dark quiet. Snow filled the air. And the who's were all dreaming sweet dreams without care when it came to the little house on the square. This is stop number one. The old grinchey clause est any climbed to the roof. Empty bags his fist then. He slid down the chimney around tight pinch but if santa could do it then socal the grinch he got stuck only once for a moment or two then. He stuck his head out of the fireplace flu where the little who stockings all hung in a row. These stockings grin are the first things to go. Then he slithered and slunk with a smile most unpleasant around the whole route and he took every president. Pop guns bicycles roller-skates drums checkerboards tricycles popcorn plums. And he stuffed them in day than the grinch buried nibley stuff dole the bags one by one then. He slumped to the ice box. He took the who feast. He took a who pudding. He took the roast beast. He cleaned out the icebox. Quick flash way the grinch even took the last can of who hash
Sweeping it All Away
"Morning. You hope your old dame well can you hear thumbs so great. Excellent now so again. Yeah hope you're doing well. With the the covert and everythin- and anything else menu lives just a big. Thank you for those of you really help with fundraising that that really has been touching thank you. We really helps us get by through all these difficulties when it's very difficult to raise money so thank you very much and today i wanted to come another case and this is Case twenty eight of the blue cliff record. And one of the reasons i i picked. The self is a little bit like remind us the way that we did a few weeks ago but also this is why nonsense who was the feature in particular call on basically loses adama conversation with another teacher so it just shows you know. You don't win all the time. And it also highlights some of the some other aspects of the teach him so last week basically. We're just talking about that aspect. To wonder of wonders. I o beings the great earth of the wisdom virtue of the awaken one to us. Of course it's The traditional robot hat sued This this This week The seventh beer eight isn't the eighth being. Let's see tuesday. I guess that that way. So it's important to to reflect on the buddha's on the buddha's life and teachings so wonder if one does i o beings the great earth are the wisdom virtue of the awaken to thus snus and what we tend to deal with more importantly as because var upside down views. We've failed to see it. You know usually the grassi's green elsewhere. You know people things have a better time than than we do. That is always better. Better places to practice in the place that i stand so i mean you can fill in. You can really fill in the blank as to why it isn't like say the awaken life for the buddha's life if you wish. So we're we're more dealing with the socal relative aspect of our own lives the set right from the beginning. So can we swallow somebody else's words in many ways Better not to that a to see for ourselves in in whatever way but it's also important not to rely on our own stories quite often the stories we have about ourselves and our our own life not reflective of reality. This reality not that is fixed. This reality is occurring now wherever we no matter what would do and then the thing is can we really take that teach in the comes on a momentary basis or do we want another one. That may become in lighter so anyway i'll bring up the case and obviously it's tied in with what i'm saying right now not mind though. Buddha miss this got no preamble straight into the main case nonsense cooled on masta. Yakusho navan jaka. Joe asked have the sages. Since time immemorial had a teaching they did not tell anybody nonsense said yes yakhio said. What is the teaching. They did not tell anyone role waiting for the answer. Now and he nonsense said it is not mind it is not buddha. It is not a thing k. Jaka joe said you said it. Nonsense said that's all i know. What a what about you jaka joe said. I'm not a great Zen t cherry data. How would i know whether it has been told on out. So he's he's having a bit of fun here now. You got to see how he says that to him though to could be sarcastic could be could be praising any any way like that nonsense said. I don't understand yucky. Oh said. I've already told you too much so The zen master zim buddhis- nev- a helped people harrison. Why are we doing this. Zan masters in buddha's never help people see kaz past and present run as if racing

Erdogan calls on Turks to boycott French products
"Talks president recipe type Erdogan has called for a boycott on French goods as tensions between the two countries rise after President Emmanuel macron called for a French Islam. This follows the beheading of teacher in France after he showed his class caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad published by the Satirical magazine. Charlie. Ever. Let's cross to Istanbul to join the journalist I login Yuck. Leeann also on the line is Philip Malia professor of French and European politics at University College London. Island let's start with you. Why is Turkey so upset? Well the magazine this week published a cover that depicts a caricature of president are due on and suggesting that he's a bit hypocritical about his religious beliefs. He's drinking a can of beer and he's lifting. The skirt of an Islamic garb. So that is Let us set off a firestorm among our close circle They're accusing them accusing the magazine of insulting and have actually sued the magazine for libel. It is a crime in Turkey publishable a punishable by up to four years in prison to insult the president. So that has been the latest twist. In this in the spat, but they've also putting a ban on French goods. That's correct that stems from President Macron's a recent pledges to. Ensure. That Islam does not affect the French way of life and French values describe that as a relaunch of the Crusades an attempt to Spread like cancer the Islamic phobia that already exists in Europe according to Don So there, but the dispute doesn't just start there between Turkey and France on they are at odds over a number of issues including the war in Libya and including the search for hydrocarbons in the eastern Mediterranean as well as the conflict in Nagorno-karabakh. Absolutely, and we'll come back to those in a moment. I just want to bring Felipe here to talk about what my chronic said. I mean he's saying that he's been misquoted. Yes I think that that's what he says and to to be fair in this Ongoing Saga Domestic Saga in France that is around the shaggy bill cartoons the latest of course, the latest terrorist attacked a couple of weeks ago. This teacher who was beheaded in France by terrorists the the trial shall you do are all taking place as we speak, but there's a lot of things going on and to be fair my call has always been has has never been the hotline in this. In this debate about the cartoons is a bit more of a solo rather than. So in a sense, it's been unsound aim to be to be branded suddenly the most Islamophobic person in fraud I don't think used to be fair but the issues for sure it's been misquoted in a sense i. think he said, yes that they were issues with Islam. which probably was a rather undiplomatic way of putting things to wealth stage. I think he's presented essentially the new bill on socal separatism, which is quite controversial in France and probably. Is, yes implicitly targets in the Muslim population in France but it's true that if French I'll probably surprised how at ten suddenly the sued relationships and and how the sort of tension has related between the two countries of late. To. Be Fair that the two men have been at loggerheads for a long time so it seems on the train side. For advil hand, it's almost protects the those at the story of the call tunes because inside the being as your guests. Until you have just said, there's been real geopolitical issues and disputes between the two countries for one now. Yes. Well, I wonder how much of this also has to do with Turkey's domestic politics I mean we know that there's a huge economic crisis is this a diversionary tactic? It certainly helps distract people from the issues surrounding the economy and our one has been accused of using any number of foreign problems to distract his voters This in particular might resonate because the fact that it's religion and this is something that people hold. So close to their hearts on think that people are filing necessarily know every twist and turn. Of the issue. But when they hear of Charlie Hebdo, the satirical magazine, they might recall the images of the Prophet that the magazine published previously and that. Sir. Association. So when are two one talks about insulting Islam that's what comes to mind. Not The fact that published an image of political leader on the cover and so if bob he does have an impact. You know anything to get people's minds off of the fact that the jobless rate is soaring. The currency in Turkey has lost about forty percent of value this year against the dollar There's real economic pain here. So the certainly can help can help change the debate now.
Silverado Fire: Two Firefighters Seriously Hurt, 7,000+ Acres Burned, Zero Containment, Los Angeles
"Well of course, story today is been the wind and eventually what came with the wind event some fires. The biggest of which is over four thousand acres burned in. Orange. County. They call it these Silverado fire it's in eastern Orange County and the area affected the most or some neighborhoods. In Irvine. They have had difficulty because of the winds using air support to help contain this fire. Burning out near Yorba Linda. But the tough news we got a couple of hours ago with regards to the Orange County fire near Irvine is at a COUPLA, firefighters were severely burned covering this for Kfi news is Corbin Carson with the latest on what's going on in Orange County forbidden from the looks on television the wind is still blowing very strongly. Yeah it picks up an in. It drops off I'm still over here at the O C Global Medical Center where those firefighters were were were abroad. But yes, as you mentioned all throughout the day, we have seen these really strong winds is knocking stuff all over the streets kicking down a flagpoles and you know campaign signs you name it it's just it's mates from for some really tough conditions in and as we've just heard that the Fire that started in Santiago Canyon. This morning is now to seventy, two hundred acres, and then the fire that I'm about to be headed to. Now that over near your Yorba Linda has grown to over a thousand acres. We're hearing that there's a possibly one structure burned. So I'm going to check that out right now, and we just recently also heard all the new evacuations for the area we got that update from division chief Shane sure would. Mandatory evacuation orders here in the city of Irvine, their impacting approximately ninety thousand, eight hundred residents. So all residents north of Irvine Boulevard from Jamboree to Bake Parkway. As well as from Irvine, boulevard south to Bianca, road from Jeffrey Road East to patrol high high school all under mandatory evacuations. Also the communities in the city of lake forest, Baker ranch and Foothill ranch are also under mandatory evacuations. So as you just heard ninety thousand people more than ninety, nine, thousand people affected by these new orders. So a lot of people being asked to move those people around those areas that are not specifically affected they are being told stay ready in case. The wind shifts or they are told some at some point to move and that people can check with their local areas too as to where to get the latest updates and make sure that they're ready to go if needed. But earlier as you also mentioned, we had a couple of firefighters this afternoon that were out there they were they were on the hand crews and one was twenty, six years old one was thirty one years old the the the hankers part of their. Clearing the line and making sure they're trying to get some kind of containment on these fires as they're moving as fast as they can, and unfortunately we heard from OC fire authority Brian Fantasy that two of them were severely burned. This afternoon here is him making bringing this tough news to US earlier one of the hardest things? Any fire chief can do is is to report. Out on one. One of the firefighter family members have been injured or. Or worse. This is. A tough for me. Tougher all my firefighters. And certainly for the families of my two injured firefighters. One of them, a twenty, six year old and one of them at thirty one year old. One has sixty five percent burns both second and third degree. The second has fifty percent. Both second and third degree burns, and so what we're hearing is currently the families are here with them at the OC global, medical center that both have been intimated and aren't able to speak and they are in critical condition. But again, as you guys in, we were talking about a couple of hours ago just these winds that have been going through this area. I. Was Talking to a meteorologist about what to expect earlier on this and he told me that Sandiego. Canyon is his right in this wind corridor of OC.
