"You can pick them off the wall to a Chicago home for 33 just three lucky fans to watch the Olympics in style. Remember, he was part of the dream team. Which is the last nail in the coffin for me regarding watching the Olympics I used to like to watch. I don't know what he's doing now. But there was this guy named Bruce Jenner. When I was a kid. He's very big. It's very cool to see him. Did you quite well? Mark Spitz. I remember him an older Corbett. I really loved her, even though she was a godless communist. I did love her one as a kid. But when we started sending pros over, like Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen to play in the Olympics. That's when I gave it a ghost on it. So let me guess. Scottie Pippen.

And we want your money toe last as long as you do, and we call your retirement your second childhood without parental supervision. So that's what it's all about. And recently barons and named a more your faithful host. One of the top 100 independent financial advisers. Actually, they've done that eight years in a row. So we're very proud of that. But of course, without our beloved and most valued clients, we would be nowhere. So all your clients. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. All right, Let's talk about what we're going to talk about on this. Our weekly excursion into the land of retirement planning, so first of all, you know, I'm starting to feel like a broken record here and boy, If you even know what a broken record is, and you're old enough to listen to the shop just occurred to me. What's a broken record, Daddy? But if you've I'm starting to feel like I am a broken record. Because we're going to talk about it's all about the stimulus. It's you know, the vaccine is important. Don't get me wrong, but without a stimulus, we could still have significant difficulty in the economy. It's the stimulus. First the vaccine second because without the stimulus, and I'll go over that with you, but also, as I've been saying next year, I think we're gonna have an economy on steroids, potentially the greatest recovery. In the history of our country and easy to do when you started such a low point, so don't don't misunderstand that. But still and so a lot of optimism on our side for next year, So we gonna talk about that also. Since we're coming up on the year end. We're going to talk about the year and financial fitness check. So we're going to go through some things that you might want to consider doing before the year end. And some of these may say you taxes. Others may save your greedy, unwashed, undeserving air some taxes, So we got some ideas for you to go over with. With you later on in the show now also a zoo we do every week. One of the most important topics that we talked about with clients is social Security and how to qualify. How tow how to take it when to take it all those different things. It is remarkably complex, you know, And as I've said in the past, there was a gold medal for complexity. Our government would win it every year. They would, they would be the number one. They would be the Mark Spitz of Gold Medal winners or are Phelps of Gold medal. So anyway, we'll have the Social Security strategies for you later on the show, now also For those of you who've listen to show over the decades Now I can't believe that I used to say over the years, but now it's decades. For those of you who have listened to the show over the decades. You know that our philosophy is that you That growth is important, obviously, but protection of principle is even Maurin important, and especially for those of you who are going to retire. If you're retired, retiring within the next five years, or you're already retired. Protecting what you built because it's going to generate the income for you when you are retired. That's why it's so important to protect the engine of the income for you. So I want to kind of change the frame the framing of that and kind of talk about it A different way to help illustrate why it's so important. What would you do? And this is for those of you who are working. What would you do if your boss called you into the office? And said, You know, I'm not gonna fire you. You haven't lost your job, but I'm gonna cut your pay for 25% or I'm gonna cut your pay 50%. And they just tell you that and now thank you very much. See you later. And now you go home for dinner that night, and you are sitting there with the realization that your income just got cut by 25 or 50%. We'll go ahead. Make my day. Oh, I don't advocate violence, Jack. No, That's not the response that you wouldn't wanna have. No, you don't wanna go Clint Eastwood on him. Stop whining. So anyway, That's the question. I want you to ponder. Ladies and gentlemen, is what if you suddenly realized that your income was cut in half. And now what are you going to do? And so we're gonna talk about that? And but more importantly, what to do about that and how to protect against it. So we have a show that is chock full of info for you, but you know, and most shows would actually stop right there. Those cells would say, You know what if we didn't just that we have done more than our listening audience could possibly want from a financial show..
California Nurses Demonstrate Outside Hospitals As COVID Crisis Worsens
"In California. The Corona virus crisis is triggering a battle between hospitals and the state's powerful nurses union. Hospitals run out of staff. The state is asking nurses to take care of more patients at once than they normally would watering down the union's most sacrosanct job protection. A nurse to patient ratio law that so far exists on Lee in California. KQED s health correspondent April de Bosque reports. Normally telemetry. Nurses take care of four patients at once. But now that the governor has relaxed the state's ratio law Norris a black has to keep track of six were given 50% more patients, and we're expected to do 50% more things. With the same amount of time Her patients are sick. Many of them are in the hospital for a stroke or heart attack, and they have coveted black is terrified of missing something or making a mistake. You know, I go home, and I feel like I could have done more. Oh, I could have done this for them. I could have done that for them. But there just wasn't enough time. In recent weeks, the state has excused 170 hospitals from the normal ratio, rules and nurses have taken to the streets in socially distant protests like this one in San Bernadino. Carrying signs that say ratios save lives. They accused hospitals of putting profits over preparing for a surge of lying nurses off over this summer than not hiring or training enough for winter. It seems that the hospitals have been more reactive. Than proactive in their staffing in California's current surge four times as many people are testing positive for the virus compared to the summer peak up to 7000 new patients could be coming to California hospitals every day. That's according to Carmela Coyle, the head of the state's Hospital association. She says. There's no way around the math. We are simply out of nurses out of doctors out of respiratory therapists. Coyle says hospitals have tried to hire contract nurses, but because California's surged early during the summer and other parts of the United States then surged afterwards. Those travel nurses are taken, she says. The change to the ratios is saving lives, and we cannot in the crisis of this proportion, buying nurses and doctors hands with red tape. Coyle says hospitals next step is to try team nursing pulling nurses from the operating room, for example, to help with covert patients. UC San Francisco economics professor joins Spitz says hospitals should have started training for this over the summer, but they didn't either because of costs or excessive optimism. California was doing so well and that we kind of got it under control, and I think there was a lot of belief that we would be able to maintain that spent says the nurses union has reason to be defensive of the ratio law. It took 10 years before it passed the Legislature in 1999, then several more to clear the court challenges, including one from then Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger as some rally where they were protesting. He made some offhand comment about kicking the nurses but because I'm always kicking death, but that's why they don't like me, which really hardened the opposition to him. Nurses prevailed in the court of public opinion and law, but the battle has made them fiercely protective of ratios. They've even accused hospitals of using the pandemic to try to roll them back for good. Hospitals denied this, and Spence says it's unlikely to go in and say Oh, you clearly did so well without ratios when we let you wave them, So let's just eliminate them entirely, I think would be just adding insult to moral injury to nurses. The public can see that nurses are overworked and burned out by the pandemic spent says there will be little appetite to cut back their job protections once it's over.

Changers has come out in your part of it and everything well. I think the changes is going to be a game changer for a lot of people. I think it's GonNa wake a lot of people up the opening night last Monday. We could go the gross over a million dollars that which is unheard of for a documentary and a our sold out sixty two percent of the theater. I think it just goes to show that after four decades of doing this work that I I think the time has fun to come that convergence of forces that finally makers the right time not only for medical reasons but also for aspirational reasons I think but I really loved about the game changers is that it made it fun and cool and sexy and strong manly and womanly and and all those aspirational ideals of Hab hub in the completely the address to biggest misconceptions that people have about eating plant-based style which is that you're a WIMP and they don't get enough protein pan downloads definitely accurate seeing these amazing men and women raised their game in the strongest man in the world love the line in there.

"From one of my favorite cities after L._A.. From Boston and in fact <hes> Eric got got to tell you that <hes> my only subscription newspaper is his the Boston Globe that is my favorite goto newspaper so Eric traveled all the way across the country after after being <hes> very much involved in air against beer in in Massachusetts came out and for a while was in newspapers in southern California especially in Orange County with the register and now he's onto a whole new adventure that we want to hear about so eric welcome to the pilgrim on the four. Oh five thank you for having me well so so what it tells a lot about <hes> about post register life for you. I've been a lifelong entrepreneur. The register was one of the chapters in my life that showed some entrepreneurial expertise experience knowhow and we got into an operating business that was very difficult to sustain as a business <hes> just look at the rest of the industry. We thought we had some insights. Some of them were correct. Some of them proved harder than we had imagined. Yes yes okay so that's all the past. It's all back there so tell us about the path from and then to hear well. It's interesting <hes> how you ask the question because as register was winding down as an opportunity for me I started to look at some other industries trees where I could leverage my experience and my skill set and it dawned on me that the previous eight years four of which were spent at the register in the newspaper and what I call the California Policy Space Ace and four of them were spent in the beer industry in Boston. I saw in early two thousand sixteen that the emerging cannabis space was a perfect confluence of California policy and beer and decided that I wanted to sit and think about how to engage with that space beer is a very interesting industry but it is old and crowded and cannabis provided a new opportunity to build something from the ground up which is what I love good good so so what did I do yeah so I picked up the phone after doing a bunch of homework so first thing I did was I started to look into the supply chain of cannabis and talk to people and do research and try and figure out what the emerging supply chain was going to look like and I quickly understood that the retail side of the business was one that wasn't particularly interesting to me. <hes> neither was the growing side of the business given my lack of even having a garden so neither of those is going to work which left the rest of the industry mystery in the middle of the supply chain <hes> which is brands and distribution and I started to focus on those two segments and figure out what it might look like in a regulated environment and the first thing thing that popped up was that the first four recreational states California. I'm sorry Colorado Oregon Washington and Alaska did not have distributors. They had transporters. Transporter's instead so a distribution license was missing from the regulation the regulatory policy so you didn't have the ability to buy and sell the product as a distributor that is unlike doc what a distributor does in every other industry so we set out to try and figure out I if it was possible and second of all to see if we could help determine that California policy would would have a distributor but the first thing I did when I realized that this was going to be a policy driven business at least for the first couple years was I picked up the phone and I called my friend Bill. Lockyer bill is the former attorney general of California. It's former state treasurer and I think one of the top <hes> grey hairs in California politics and I called him up and asked him if he might have interest in going on this cannabis abyss journey. It's Nice how owning a newspaper in Orange County can give you access it is there's nothing like access that you get when you own a newspaper right but I called bill and to my surprise he had great interest and I thought that it would be an interesting way to look at and do something that he had only seen infrequently in his life which is the emergence of a new industry st that as he said in politics nothing new has happened since seventeen eighty seven and now we had the opportunity to build something from scratch and what I talked about from the beginning was the idea of design we set out to help design the policy that would form the regulatory framework in the State of California good good and and we spent two years almost two two years in development I would say meaning that we knew when we got started in two thousand sixteen in April of that there was no operating business until January two thousand eighteen that was when the original medical policy was set to start and we also knew that there was likely going to be a referendum on the two thousand sixteen ballot that would also dovetail timing wise with that two thousand eighteen January launch lo and behold in November of two thousand sixteen. Most people remember that for a different reason we in the cannabis industry remember it as the referendum horrendous passing prop sixty four making cannabis legal in California and starting with a two thousand eighteen January date all right so now in that initiative did did it have a role for district distribution. Yes so <hes> we along with the teamsters <hes> the League of cities and several other California distributors got together and formed a lobbying coalition to negotiate with the powers that be in Sacramento the legislators the administrators the governor's office and try to figure out what policy would come together between the medical real policy and the recreation policy so governor Brown in January two thousand seventeen stood up and said I don't really want this to be my legacy but I do WanNa make sure of one thing and that is that we don't have to separate separate policies. We need to have a single policy framework that includes and marries what we've voted on in the legislature <hes> on the medical side and what the citizens have voted on the referendum side so that started a four or five month debate in Sacramento between the folks on the distribution side who were vying for control distribution and those on the other side who were the cannabis folks the old line cannabis folks largely who wanted distribution to be less mandated and more loosey Goosey and that's what they got in Colorado Washington Oregon and Alaska <hes>. We ended up getting what we wanted. Wanted <hes> which I describe as three exclusive jobs for a distributor now is that it do you have a license for that. That's correct so there is now a type eleven distribution license in California that requires that distributors play a role in the system so tell me what that means now now now. If there is the license I mean I'm I'm thinking about beer I mean and and the people who seem to be making most of the money is is the beer distributors. Oh the brands make a lot of money. Well Okay but what I see most of present publicly is the distributors that's right and the reason why I you see distributors. Most publicly they are the ones who are in the stores well and they're the ones who are local so the beer industry has gone to a national footprint where most of the beers that we drink <hes> with the exception of the Craft Beers are national brands and international brands where you wouldn't see anybody from the brands themselves because they're not here who you would see would be the distributor reps who are on the streets in the bars in the stores deploying wing the products so if if I wanted to go to the beer industry to get support for whether it was a nonprofit donation or something like that I don't think I would go to the clydesdales. I think I would go to the local distributors. That's correct. They might go to the Clydesdales to get you the support that you're looking for but in essence what a local distributor in the alcohol and beer industry is is the local rap up for the brand and that's very lucrative it can be yes and the reason why it can be lucrative is because it is built to be a scale business. It is also built to be an olive coppola business where every regulated distributor environment in the United States whether you're talking about beer or wine or petroleum or her pharmaceuticals it is always oligopoly overtime and that's because it's a race to scale and once a single entity gets to scale it becomes incumbent on the rest of the entities to combines so that they can reach that scale and compete with the scale operator and now you have two or three entities so how does that affect cannabis distribution in California well. It's a great question so cannabis distribution in California was is built similar to the beer business and that means that the distributor has three exclusive jobs job number one is transportation job number two is tax collection and job number three is test monitoring so let me explain tax collection and test monitoring what it means for the distributor to be the tax collector is that when the excise tax is paid both by the manufacturer facture the grower in the canvas and by the retailer so both of them have their own excise taxes those tax transactions are actually collected on a monthly basis by the distributor so the distributor will make sure that when he buys product from the manufacturer it already includes the tax because then he pulls the tax out and pays it on the monthly basis manufacturer you mean grower or is this another overstep. There's another step if you're not talking about flour so what we all remember as cannabis is the flower that you put in your pipe or you roll into a joint that currently really that type of ingestion of cannabis now only makes up forty five percent of the market the other fifty five percent is made up of concentrates that are vape and products that are synthesized using T._H._c. inside of them so think about topical 's tinctures and edibles does the distributor distribute to flowers will yes most distributors will distribute into the store. The distribution business in general tends to be a channel business so if you are delivering to a channel of stores you're gonNA generally deliver everything. That store needs okay my son. <hes> has been in retail big box retail management for twenty five years and <hes> he's tired of it burned out hard work probably much like owning a newspaper and and he said I gotta get out of this and we talked about various options that he had in and he you know in you know Massachusetts. <hes> you know western Massachusetts all those big big mills that were out there on the water. He said that that he lives out in Warwick in said you know I noticed that Athol the big mill and Ethel had been sold. Maybe look at it and it was sold you may you may notice soul to some of the <hes> <hes> I think it was the attorney general former attorney general in Massachusetts but it was that kind of group that was coming together to buy this mill to turn into an indoor grow and he contacted them and and was talking with him and then he came to me and said did you know I have this big garage and so he's in the process now of building a grow inside his big garage and and it's amazing to see this entrepreneurial effort that was created the by the Massachusetts Law and and <hes> now they're it's. It's it's similar to what you described. In Colorado. There is a there is no distributor license. It is is the deliverer the transporting license and in just to see how that that grow grows that becomes a business. That's amazing just amazing. It's interesting the story that you tell because it is a different story than in California for for an important reason California has had professional growers not only during the twenty plus years or the. I don't know nine hundred ninety nine so the eighteen years nineteen ninety-six. I'm sorry when prop two fifteen passes passed so the twenty two years that cannabis has been legal medically in California created an entire industry of growers and manufacturers if you don't have that like they don't have in Massachusetts the minute that the consumer and or the non-professional operator has the ability to participate in the market even at a small level they're going to do it. Yes and that's what's happening in Massachusetts and it did not happen much in California because the market was already there. I didn't understand why but I certainly experienced the difference. In in Massachusetts. There is a a large the number of people who are consultants who are doing podcasts is doing all sorts of of providing information and guidance to a lot of small growers and it's just amazing and interesting I mean when when when when my son said to me you know just in this small good sized garage and he said just in this garage that I could be generating fifty thousand dollars every five weeks amazing uh-huh amazing in and he said you know I can I can sell it to the to the stores retail stores or can sell it to manufacturing. Do you want to hear what my friends in Massachusetts. Tell me is going on with the the cannabis industry sure I ask them. How are the store is doing? This stores doing doing fine but mostly what is happening is trading a flower because if the stores aren't selling a whole lot of flour they're not in need of everyone's product so what happened to that product. It's certainly if you're producing fifty thousand dollars a month or every eight or ten weeks.

"Eric Comes from one of my favorite cities after L._A.. From Boston and in fact <hes> Eric I gotta I gotTa tell you that <hes> my only subscriptions newspapers his the Boston Globe that is my favorite goto newspaper. Eric traveled all the way across the country after after being <hes> very much involved in arrogance at beer in in Massachusetts <hes> came out out and for a while was in newspapers in southern California especially in Orange County with the register and now he's onto a whole new adventure that we want to hear about so eric welcome to the pilgrim on the four. Oh five thank you for for having me well so so what it tells you about <hes> about post register life for you. I've been a lifelong entrepreneur. The register was one of the chapters in my life that showed some entrepreneurial expertise experience knowhow and we got into an operating business that was very difficult to sustain as a business <hes> just look at the rest of the industry. We thought we had some insights. Some of them were correct. Some of them proved harder than we had imagined. Yes yes okay so that's all the past. It's all back there so tell us about the path from venda here well. It's interesting <hes> how you ask the question because as register was winding down as an opportunity for me I started to look at some other industries trees where I could leverage my experience and my skill set and it dawned on me that the previous eight years for of which were spent at the register in the newspaper and what I call the California Policy Space Ace and four of them were spent in the beer industry in Boston. I saw in early two thousand sixteen that the emerging cannabis space was a perfect confluence of California policy and beer and decided that I wanted to sit and think about how to engage with that space beer is a very interesting industry but it is old and crowded and cannabis provided a new opportunity to build something from the ground up which is what I love good good so so what did I do yeah so I picked up the phone after doing a bunch of homework so first thing I did was I started to look into the supply chain of cannabis and talk to people and do research and try and figure out what the emerging supply chain was going to look like and I quickly understood that the retail side of the business was one that wasn't particularly interesting to me. <hes> neither was the growing side of the business given my lack of even having a garden so neither of those is going to work which left the rest of the industry street in the middle of the supply chain <hes> which is brands and distribution and I started to focus on those two segments and figure out what it might look like in a regulated environment and the first thing saying that popped up was that the first four recreational states California. I'm sorry Colorado Oregon Washington and Alaska did not have distributors. They had transporters. Transporter's instead so a distribution license was missing from the regulation the regulatory policy so you didn't have the ability to buy and sell the product as a distributor that is unlike doc what a distributor does in every other industry so we set out to try and figure out I if it was possible and second of all to see if we could help determine that California policy would I'd have a distributor but the first thing I did when I realized that this was going to be a policy driven business at least for the first couple of years was I picked up the phone and I called my friend. Bill Lockyer Bill is the former attorney general of California a and it's former state treasurer and I think one of the top <hes> grey hairs in California politics and I called him up and asked him if he might have interest in going on this cannabis this journey. It's Nice how owning a newspaper in Orange County can give you access. It is nothing like access that you get when you own a newspaper right but I called bill and to my surprise he had great interest and I thought that it would be an interesting way to look at and do something that he had only seen infrequently in his life which is the emergence of a new industry tree that as he said in politics nothing new has happened since seventeen eighty seven and now we had the opportunity to build something from scratch and what I talked about from the beginning was the idea of design we set out to help design the policy that would form the regulatory framework in the state of California good good and and we spent two years almost two two years in development I would say meaning that we knew when we got started in two thousand sixteen in April of that there was no operating business until January two thousand eighteen that was when the original medical policy was set to start and we also knew that there was likely going to be a referendum on the two thousand sixteen ballot that would also dovetail timing wise with that two two thousand eighteen January launch lo and behold in November of two thousand sixteen. Most people remember that for a different reason we in the cannabis industry remember it as the Referendum Brendan passing prop sixty four making cannabis legal in California and starting with a two thousand eighteen January date all right so now in that initiative did did it have have a role for district distribution. Yes so <hes> we along with the teamsters <hes> the League of cities and several other California distributors got together and formed a lobbying coalition coalition to negotiate with the powers that be in Sacramento the legislators the administrators the governor's office and try to figure out what policy would come together between the medical real policy and the recreational policy so governor Brown in January two thousand seventeen stood up and said I don't really want this to be my legacy but I do WanNa make sure of one thing and that is that we don't have to separate separate policies. We need to have a single policy framework that includes and marries what we've voted on in the legislature <hes> on the medical side and what the citizens have voted on the referendum side so that started a four or five month debate in Sacramento between the folks on the distribution side who were vying for control distribution and those on the other side who were the cannabis cannabis folks the old line cannabis folks largely who wanted distribution to be less mandated and more loosey Goosey and that's what they got in Colorado Washington Oregon and Alaska <hes> we ended up getting what we wanted ended up which I describe as three exclusive jobs for a distributor now is that it do you have a license for that. That's correct so there is now a type eleven distribution license in California that. Requires that distributors play a role in the system so tell me what that means now now now. If there is the license I mean I'm I'm thinking about beer. I mean in in the people who seem to be making most of the money is the beer distributors. Oh the brands make a lot of money. Well okay all right but what I see most of present publicly is the distributors that's right and the reason why so you see distributors most publicly they are the ones who are in the stores well and they're the ones who are local so the beer industry has gone to a national footprint where most of the beers that we drink <hes> with the exception of the Craft Beers are national brands and international brands where you wouldn't see anybody from the brands themselves because they're not here who you would see would be the distributor wraps who are on the streets in the bars in the stores deploying being the products so if if I wanted to go to the beer industry to get support for whether it was a nonprofit donation or something like that I don't think I would go to the clydesdales. I think I would go to the local distributors. That's correct. They might go to the Clydesdales to get you the support that you're looking for but in essence what a local distributor in the alcohol and beer industry is is the local rap nope for the brand and that's very lucrative it can be yes and the reason why it can be lucrative is because it is built to be a scale business. It is also built to be an olive coppola business where every regulated distributor environment in the United States whether you're talking about beer or wine or petroleum or her pharmaceuticals it is always oligopoly overtime and that's because it's a race to scale and once a single entity gets to scale it becomes incumbent on the rest of the entities to combine combined so that they can reach that scale and compete with the scale operator and now you have two or three entities so how does that affect cannabis distribution in California well. It's a great question so cannabis distribution in California was is built similar to the beer business and that means that the distributor has three exclusive jobs job number one is transportation job number two is tax collection and job number three is test monitoring so let me explain tax collection and test monitoring what it means for the distributor to be the tax collector is that when the excise tax is paid both by the manufacturer facture the grower in the canvas and by the retailer so both of them have their own excise taxes those tax transactions are actually collected on a monthly basis by the distributor so the distributor will make make sure that when he buys product from the manufacturer it already includes the tax because then he pulls the tax out and pays it on the monthly basis manufacturer you mean grower or is this another overstep.

"Here with you. Hope you Tuesday's off to a good start. Jason fitz. Little Spitz will join us a little bit later on the show. But it was celebration time in Toronto on on Monday. And we have to say there was a situation where four people were shot. Three people were arrested. Thankfully, it looks like none of those injuries were life threatening. And you think about how much different that could have been there over million people in downtown Toronto. So thankfully, that, that was a it was a horrible thing that shouldn't have happened. But it seemed to be self contained in these relations. That's what concerns you the crowd that big. Sometimes you never know what happens, but we all kind of have that stereotype of Canadians being that passive aggressive. So you've ever thought of them are going to be out there, and there wasn't, you know, the burning cars and all that kind of crazy stuff that unfortunately, we get here in the state sometimes, but yes. People shot. So that was that was some horrible news air. But trae said, luckily nobody seriously injured in that as a million and a half people celebrated Toronto in the NBA champ. Yeah. Give credit to everyone. That was part of the response team on that one that contain it so quickly and allowed everyone else to continue celebrating. What was an unbelievable moment, like for the city of Toronto for the country of candidate of finally celebrated championship in the NBA? You can't overstate what a moment is for all of them, obviously, Drake will let us know just how much that means to the locals in Toronto natives straight the Canadian lavar ball comes. No. Not at all. Sure. I mean, I don't mind. I don't mind music at all. Drake's those legitimate contributions to my summers. So shout out to Trey. Yeah. Hits. You'd be as big a fan of throws you want when he speaks I may chuckle a bit. But I don't mind playing him on the show. We did break are one hard rule yesterday. But because only because we could make fun of that's exactly right. By the way, we're never playing with our boss. Well, we will talk about his kid. Oh, absolutely don't. Do we don't translate our issues bother onto the kid'll do here? With that on a daily basis. Yeah. But it'll ball family. We don't do news about another ball, not Lonzo another player. Lamelo that bar which were happy. Exactly, which is good news for him. So we'll get to that a little bit right? But it was celebration day. And you know what you have to appreciate and respect someone who understands when their thing becomes a thing how they responded. So let's do let's do the beginning and the end here. Right. This was Leonard on media day before the season began in Toronto when he talked about, we don't know much about you tells it. He goes, I'm a fun guy. And then he ended up with this. And people like what the hell was that, man? That, that was crazy. So that sort of started the season in the NBA on media, and Toronto and on the celebration of the championship which sounded in every way like a guys, it's been great here was Leonard thanking the city for the experience, which I thought was interesting and then summing it up perfectly.

I've got a crazy story for you here actually, I have somebody who will tell you. They're crazy story about what they wrote up here on reason dot com. A friend Robby suave is on the show. Now, he is an associate editor at reason and also has a new book out, which he will tell you about the first Robbie tell you this piece Williams College had students claiming that free speech harms, but they said, even crazier stuff, like students were screaming that we were trying to kill them. What happened here, my friend? Yeah. They're claiming that people who want free speech on campus that some of the professors. Do they're, they're hoping that the to Williams College will agree to the with pro free speech statement, the university of Chicago started. Many other colleges have signed onto it. You know that we're going to have controversial speakers. We're gonna have feet because we know that make the campus better stronger more intelligent place. These, you know, this is a small subset of an activist minority that is that exists on every campus particularly I leak campuses that they pay. No having these discussions having free speech, it harms. And you are literally trying to kill us. If you're, if you're going to Lao people on campus, who? This is their, this is their ideology student most student, but a radical subset, that have tremendous power influence, and they got some of the professors to sign off on having onto goggle principles because they were so afraid of offending these students. You know, people misuse the term literally a lot in our, in our current discourse, as you know, I literally was doing something that I wasn't literally doing is what you hear from people that, but here they were in fact, saying that, that trying to kill them is what free speech accomplishes. I can you can you walk me through the crazy here because this is this is really the ultimate extension of the speech equals violence, which is something that started on the campus and now his spread into the broader culture. But now it's not just speech equals violence. It's speech equals you're literally trying to kill me.

Europe's changing political landscape
"Voters, go to the polls over the next three days to select members of the European parliament in Strasbourg members of our Brussels bureau, discuss why these elections matter, and how they are likely to affect the upcoming appointment of senior officials. It's does day, which means the first voters in the Netherlands, UK are heading off to the ballot boxes. And we must be having votes across the twenty eight Member States for the next three days and on Sunday, we'll get the results. Alex, jim. What are we expecting tappan on Sunday? How is this all going to work, this vast Eurovision type exercise of democracy? It is fast. It's across so many countries, so many political cultures that it will take quite a long time, actually for the results to shake out even after the results come in a lot of these political alliances that we have in Europe, the center ride the centre-left, the liberals, the greens, the conservatives to the right of that the far-left all projects emotion. So they'll keep home trying to build alliances steel parties in the weeks after the election to so we weren't necessarily get a clear snapshot, but you'll have. An idea on the night of a what's happened to the mainstream of pro. European politics, since director, elections, started in nineteen seventy nine there's roughly bean a majority for the center. Right. And center, left combined pro EU parties used to make up roughly, seventy five percents of the parliament, this time at least is that into shrink to a degree that makes it much more difficult for the center to operate in Brussels, is the first question. Secondly. Is that going to be because populist anti EU parties have done a little better could we end up in a situation where France Italy? Poland the UK have the top parties as either very euro skeptic, all all-star to the entire project. And how does the EU deal with that? Those are the two main things and. And it feeds into this massive haggle, we're going to start in the immediate aftermath to fill all top EU jobs that are becoming vacant this year. Kim, we have had weeks and weeks of projections and forecasts from national countries about polling. Do we already have a sense of who the big winners will be on the night, regardless of some of the nuances of the margins? We can tell the people who are going to be celebrating on Sunday night already, as one of the things this fascinating unique about the European elections. Is that we can see straightaway how individual parties have done on the nights? But then these unusual parties have to find a way to fit into political groups political families within the politics self, and that's going to be a convicting exercise with obese a highly going on. But we will clearly have some national winners newses unbutton includes when Europe's most prominent politicians, one of the things will discover on Sunday is, whether you're probably Kamar, political party and president of annual Macron has finished. First place or whether it's the fall Russell on us. United Marie lapenne those finished in first place. That's an issue, which has ramifications for the formation of the European parliament. And what happens in the coming years of you policy-making, but it also has really big domestic front vacations for my crime FRANZ. I mean Jared just from Boise in the polling so far. We know we're gonna have situation where we're going to have more fragmented parliament where both the main center left group associates Democrats on the made center, right? Group, you're People's Party are going to be in a weakened position compared to now. The question is how we can under who is really good to be the one who reads the benefits can maybe going to the UK, it seems like for is probably going to emerge victorious. Whatever happens given the sort of bounce storming need. He has, but they could be some smaller winners like the lib Dem's who sort of come out of nowhere an identity. And I guess, in terms of the parliament, they will help out people like I knew Macron, because they'll say in his group despite the French president's sort of reluctance to keeping the Brits in. So there's elements. Surprises here. What are the sort of blacks meant could we foresee? What if you look at the polling at the moment, it's been reasonably steady because it's a massive aggregates of lots of political battles going on the EP are ahead this, the centre-right group, but not by much. The social democrat group sent to left has benefited from the u k still taking part, they get a lot of labor MP's that making ground in countries like Spain that coming closer to the EP. It's within something like twenty seats and if they can do a little bit better. They could complex to knocking the EP off the top spot, which they've held since nine thousand nine the liberals are expanding Emmanuel Macron, the French president is planning to make some kind of a lion's with them to maybe change the name change look at the potty up put like a hundred seats and then you have a lot of snow. Smaller groups in the mid tier, the published led group of conservatives, the greens, the fall left in the forty to sixty range, and then you've got two more far right groups, which may be in the fifty range or plus now if you look at old past European elections, and what happens between the polling and the results will tends to happen is governed parties to worse-than-expected than in the polls, smaller parties do better than expected. The centre-left do worse than expected, and the populace do better, the anti EU parties do better. So feed that in and actually I think you see kind of bunching of all the groups with probably the EP still there'll thereabouts is the top party, which is the first take away from this as they move into this kind of discussion about what happens with the jobs. Why does the cultivation of the parliament matter? For the jobs for somebody on the outside. How does this get divvied up on the first one and the probably the one all looking as European Commission? President job is up person gained emerged from some of the four or five spits and candidates. We've seen already. Situation where among different political groups in the parliament has not actually any agreement of wall process should be used to appoint the president of the European Commission. We have a situation where the sense right, the European People's policy has thrown his weight behind this system called the lead candidate Spitz and conduct system where basically that group has champion candidate in this case selection. It suggestions Manfred. Vaber veiled, perspective, new cushion, president the socialists and Democrats, they've also bought into that system, there need candidate is France Timmermans, but other political groups in the parliament are much less keen on national leaders in the European Union who are the ones who coast, chiefly should go and find a candidate B commission president, that also opposed to this will all need to be reviewed in the light of the results. And what happened already on Monday when political leaders in the parliament meet and pour over this and basically, in a way mount vaber in fronts. Tunes face will be decided at the ballot box. But also at that meeting on Monday, so on keys. Okay. We have a day with will meet in the morning, and the European Council would meet in the evening. Is that the day when we actually will get some clarity or is this actually good drag on for a long, while yet, maybe we'll get a stalemate other African define that as clarity, but you could have a situation where enough of the political parties, a stand up and say, look, we're not fighting anyone put a spits in Candida. So maybe you could have the center right the center, left the greens, and that's enough over block to make sure that you couldn't nominate someone else who didn't run as a lead candidate in this election because they wouldn't be able to get a majority in the parliament's going to blocking minority simile on the European Council side, you could have eight ten twelve leaders who say enough of this within into this S and Canada idea. We don't like Manfred vaber all fronts Timmermans will have a merges in that top spot, and we're unwilling to do so you can have a situation where the two institutions. That have kind of equal Sade some degree in who, eventually emerges the leaders are supposed to nominate some on the parliament approve, but it could be in a situation that birthday look with stuck with a blocking minority that we can't bring together, and that could mean we're in for a much longer process than people think the, the hopes of getting a whole package together in June might be a little bit to Optimus tick, or you could be in a situation where they look and think, well going to block you minority in parliament, but they can't get a majority for this bits and confidante and the spits dot com. Get a majority in the cancel, so maybe we need to move on. And that's the real test of those couple of days, a lot spends on how those two main maltings before those two main political families performing the election, right? I mean, that's in a way, the simplicity of the system is really helpful particularly well even if they finish the largest group thought does automatically Herdman favors legitimacy. It makes it harder for DP as. A political lines to assert, the commission president and determine socialists, really at some say, I mean, should case, the democratic exercise while the vote is due on Sunday. Really does not coming to put you both on the spot, Jim who's your candidate? Who's your name for the European Commission? President. What's your hunch, Christine ago onyx I think marketer might make it. Okay. So two candidates nor promise permission to candidates. None of whom are running formally or informally for this job have been called by the F T in all honesty. The truth is that woman, and we barely ever had a Dutch. Gone gone.

And when he has about three he died. I can't remember what did you say is west? But anyway, anybody wants find out that read up on it? And so there's a cemetery there. Right close to town. Right. The end of high street and all the people that lived around its people house all around it. And these people heard an explosion one evening. I don't know what part of the day it was. But they heard an explosion the grab check it out. And they can't find nothing all up around everything they thought it was a gas explosion. And come to find out they go little Harry's grain. And this is a good one. I even talked to somebody that was there when it happened a lot 'cause I write books, and I you know, studied up on everything. Talk to the guy that worked at the cemetery and everything, but anyway, his that his casket was in kind of exploded and it come out of the ground. It raised up about three weeks. And you could see a crack, you know, under the side and everything that the ball had opened up from the inside out like it blew out, and Harry Spitz and been buried for sixty years about sixty years and the freaky part was when they opened it up. He looked like he did sixty years ago. Yeah. Well, Ted, but yeah. Cool at the same time. You're right. And when he died his mother, they put his mother and mental hospital know, how long it went to a mental hospital and a friend of mine was like one of those nursing assistant. So she actually helped take care of her there. I found out much later, and she told me when she started to work there that they told her that once a year they called her. I don't know what they don't remember what they call it spits, they called her specialty his mother, and they said her furniture in her room would change around the furniture and move around change. Rearrange furniture. Sure happened once a year. But nobody of course, they don't do that. And then lost it. You know? Right. He thought they was just kidding around. And while she was working there it actually happened. Anyway, the WVU patriots. I thought at the college the professors would go and talk to Harry once in a while because he was a genius. So they knew the kid and this name quite often. And when this happened they couldn't find no gas explosions. There's no too much on the ground. They did everything. And they couldn't figure out what happened because there was no no proof of anything. Why this happened? And that coupled of funeral homes got together, and they re very him and everything and putting back in the ground. And so there's all kinds of stuff written on him over the years. And it's it's like I said, you can find all kinds of stuff about it. But appreciate that. That's very interesting story. It is a strange story and.

must have you feel about this moment where like i did the comedy stars would netflixing was good i was glad that i got the opportunity sure yeah but then you hear about like you know sign fokker's rock and louis this is like the ah they just gave jerry seinfeld half a billion dollars thank god because we need who was learning it's not i'm not even jealous but it's sort of like give me like a maybe maybe like five percent yeah yeah i'm not complaining but if you're throwing money away yeah exactly i'll take a little no i was a you know i they were it was one of those things where i was going to tapered and then i was gonna do it with the company that i did my last russia with and then there were the dates were confused and then there were like well we can only do it on this date and i was getting ready to go into production on season two of the show and i you know you can feel the material right inning and reaching pugh tressens sure and you feel like dying yeah exactly and i was i was looking at some nick i was looking at a new products that list as they go i really wanted to get it down ago and i have a really great agent at william morris them silvio lund who's really a terrific guy and he goes let's just do novel and he called up this record company in damn nailed it and and get it in and i do find the audio lives longer than the video so people listened comedy on the radio they listen to comedy on their phone i it's rare that they will sit down and watch a special again that's true that's true i l walsh asif yeah yeah exactly but all listen to especially again all this shit you always in the comedy records i've heard before i listen to because because now uh you know you have that done than you're getting ready to go back on the road and yet you've got to frantically get new shit guinness shit yeah i mean i i'm not i don't believe it has to be one hundred percent new but it should be you really not believe that or you just tell you i really i know i really do but uh i'm i'm much lower than the percentage that it should be i think people want to hear one or two hundred families that you know like i i dunno i got the idaho 'cause i think you and are similar in that in that whoever's judging that whoever saying i this year from the record whoever saying that usually we make them up and you out now there are no there are a couple of those is ideal hit that twenty percent of the suv his new wave that why do we listen to that guy because he's the guy that hates us as much as we do he sees this is already just the way we are with a little disappointed with this was never the almost you'll has got it but not quite right but i i you know i probably saw george karlin i don't know a dozen times my life and i would always love it when there was a oh well he's going to do baseball and football great disease and you go this is great listen to this i sure i i listen i like hearing beats like he because this museum it is a form of music digitally form of music when you know like i hear who i can was due over and over again if it comes up in 'cause i got the shuffle gone on ma if schimmel comes up and mike because like the ear was such a master of this very specific type of timing kind of like morose jewish he you know who it's it's the disease descended joan roma jackie veronica yep that good good poll well he told me although yeah and you know who else was heavily influenced by jackie vernon let me guess who stephen wright sure that makes a lot of ads yeah i love jackie vern yeah jackie o'brien was amazing scr i saw he was the guy i saw my parents took museum when i was like eleven oh my god where that's what change to me because i saw him on tv do the slide show and then he came to albuquerque and i saw it in the paper at out in albuquerque was a lounge in the hilton hotel phantom my parents took me that's fist of it and that was what i was like that's when i knew it whenever you but what if he opened bush and soon turkomans should they would have been fine but what we were close enough just to see like you know he's a hold and he's like you saw all of it is in this and that it was not afraid i was like this is still good i have this conversation with somebody is really really interesting is talking about how much i love rickles yeah and i was talking to a a younger com we'll they're all younger and owes quoting some rousseau stuff and this goes help us us laura his own because he so unworkable because it has nothing to do with that yes all music i love the ud in the rhythm of the music and i remember seeing him sometimes he said things that didn't even make sense but because no i will give you a beautiful example i was with your friend and mine rob cohen at the desert in and they had just had a giant renovation of the desert in and it was sweltering in the show room when he goes out a forty milliondollar renovation they get a great airconditioning system two facts on the roof of the peace looseleaf paper glenn doesn't mean a gut dim thing he could have said tortoises zeroed onesyllable i tell you and could as a bear as you know i'm not laughing because i am straight and therefore i'm exerting my heterosexual privilege via in a derogatory way no eases thought of that of that part of that of that and that's what i have yet but the weird thing is we give you isn't something like schimmel who is usually the victim of his own joke yes in his life had the life of fucking job yeah and then the political whatever's politically incorrect about it itself offering a software threat and then i don't like he is the victim of every jew every joke has a victim and symbols act it was him yet in something somehow that can elevate ivan i agree i agree yeah i don't know if i have these discussions but like i for some reason i'm just able the separate i i don't know that you know revisionism is necessary just because times change in terms of what you you you feel personally attached to her what you like i don't i don't odds visa will difficult but but i can says it already owned for me i can still you know i don't do we delete all that stuff do we delete are emotional connection to right i i don't see how that's possible tackle and it's like when we damn my have hitler's paintings i have to separate you have that book on i have the coffee table excuse called raspberry lauda angles lot of hard angles not a lot of people but a lot of beautiful buildings oh i used to joke about that it's like well you know hitler was vegetarian but but yeah there's an i think i also in a lot of it is just being the soldier nostalgia for being too beating a kid a like watching rickles on the dean martin roast and every but it's a totally different school of show business than new and i grew up with golfway told me the story that when he worked with reckles rickles would would just roast him all day uh and then afterwards a poolside now you set a small lead money the eu is a very carrying well that lowvolume that's where my grandmother said she go see him in vegas and he has yet on everybody but he too she's she put it like this he apologizes very nicely renault but the only thing with bob did he couldn't understand is that that he wore jeans onstage right easily bob you can't you have to get the dress nice addressed and that's the general that's the thing that broke for that generation like these kids they they would do about those things that was karlin the kid he's talking gripe but what i'm saying is in that era in for us it's i think it's like we understand that he's seeking safe haggar he gets it whatever and it doesn't have any leasehold me we gotta shoulder that and if it's like a you can attack me for y'all still respecting somebody who is not of david his original like and that's in and that's and that's a that's a valid point that you do have to update in and he didn't he didn't need he i was watching him i went down it was yuri lewis rabbit telling when he died oh yeah and i was watching the jerry lewis rose from 1968 rickles was on it with the two things that but that it will rise rose that's not even the right the idea the one the first who the killer who's just like jerry i say this from the bottom of my heart jerry you're a jew his justly all right yeah but the other almost didn't he goes you know jerry's a clown and there are a lot of grey clowns emmett kelly that's about i will not give up the other baru hui was rose the is when the martin ones and j jim stewart was on the day is and he goes a jimmy i spoke to the family you're doing fine hosts one there was one where he was on it was his last appearance he was his last carson appearance because johnny was retiring on and then he may johnny lab zohar johnny got into a coughing fit careful john every time you cough lentils at home highfiving the life little good will and i love one and it's a real shit have you seen that one where they built him a club filled with just celebrities the martin there's a dean martin rose who was might have been the d martin show where they wanted to recreate alive rickles show i have that 'cause i signed up for the guide them the other demar the i never saw coming i had no idea there were so many but there was one that came it might have been the d martin show but they set up a club they mean on a sound stage and had people like pat boone in the audience all the celebrities kartal malta bar like he was probably nineteen seventy the early 70s mid70s yeah and and rickles just went up and did his club in insulted ever yeah it was great and as you sweating mid70s when the american flag had wide lapels warren ugly i go it's an interesting question though about because i had this moment where you know being a comic as long as we have you know you and i are old guys already yeah and and by the way just two i am fully aware before anybody jumps down my throat about don rickles and whatever i know i'm i'm i'm done i'm in i'm with this is not what is contemporary this is my view of it pete townsend was talking about the john entwistle used a bitch about wrap that he didn't get it yeah and he said it's not our job to get it it's our job to get out of the way and and i am aware of that yeah i get it i get it yeah well no i mean i you know i can it's becomes difficult with depending on what the transgression is here to stay supportive you'll have to be supporters somebody you can condemn somebody and you can you think somebody's awful but still say that second record though that sure you know and then you somebody said a really smart the genome our solar arguello should young new comic really really funny really funny and really martin somebody was bashing some on woke person new than apologize for it and she said you know you have to let people make their mistakes and grow in public he kinda led have to you have to let people grow catches white dot terrorise them into some sort of cultural siberia yeah the you know the my last special the one before this one um i had the whole thing at the end of boat the our word uh and how it's now relegated wizards see word and i tried to do on those bits ya ya and i wouldn't in i did i mean the bit was a boat the strictly the nomenclature of equating that word with the n word in this year oh it was actually addressing the that that whole thing it wasn't about like i don't use it that way no because then i did use it uh you know i know is that i would never do this and then i did i cheated all over the place and i you know i i said it and i said the n word in the sewer day and i say them now relish at home time mutter myself but whatever i would i would nothing happened but i wouldn't have done i wouldn't do it today i got i did a bit about it about defending you know the use of it in you know in a sense of like in a ended this style gic way um y yo how you know what i mean i grew up with that yeah right but then i guy the guy that igf someone i think it was an email the just said we you know i'm the parent and in and that was a you know i like i had a couple of swipes but in eventually i got a handle on it i i did it and then i met john mcginley lose of very on the forefront of of of all those issues and it becomes real via an and it's not about first amendment that's about though these people have feelings and their young their lives and you're okay i guess that's the thing hey how attached are you two that really need it have you read them of using that word it's not he's no one's censoring anybody yeah it's like you're hurting people's feelings and it's already hard for them yeah exactly brilliant yes i guess they have a rough enough time any and you can and that is truly you can say that will riggles talking about fragile new have enough to have enough they have enough trouble i my my feelings about that are like you say whatever you want the shoulder the uganda water take the take the burn yeah tell uber then handle it what the what's this new were the new season standard against evil what's it did you finish it's all done joey finished it premiers november first on ifc house a different uh it takes the story it takes us roy for the premise of the story is the whole idea of the shows was quite simple i love horror movies are my football so i just thought what if i did a horror movie but put a character in the middle of it that didn't belong here and it was basically what if my dad was an harm of has he wouldn't give it doesn't know just know does he does no he doesn't give fuck right and and we used to make that joke if you remember the indicating kong he's on the building in the planes are flying area my brothers and i used to joke did of our dad was in one of those planes that he would fly out of formation check the scoring the baseball game comeback shoot a little bit more go back and i just thought it would be interesting if like what if instead of buffy the vampire slayer it was just an old irish guy that didn't give a shit and and that was the the premise and i didn't i my mother is still alive but his wife who would have been my mother dies before the show starts and because i needed them to have a giant vulnerability or is just hassle oca them what john mcginley did with that was created this amazingly nuanced character is a good actor huh israel has been around for a long time ago he's not fuck in a row it doesn't seem age much either doesn't know he's he's good lives at the gym i mean is this arms are and i say this knowing he's listening to it his arms are terrifying um uh no easing these in crazy like an old irish boxer from like a poster for the he's like hundreds who was in the issue williams was like five over visas and wall street is a platoon he was in any given sunday but he's built like an old irish bar and how he's all upper body and but he created the he gave this character so much more than than i had give it it on the page and and i have to also give jet at foreign ego amazing kudos for the way she balances him the ballast that she and as such a strong actress the because john is done so much of this work that for the second season i had to right up to him so i developed a whole arc of a story line where there is a time travel element where he's going to try to go back and save his wife's life oh wow and as as always happens makes things much worse oh good and that's the arc this as the art the season and what's the name of the record that see the digital this is what did them i call it a record 'cause i don't know what else to call it how it looks it in a my doubt because my downloads sounds vaguely filthy ah mister funny men and this is what the kids on her the account how many you've done how many record seventy special uh i have the worst i proudly have the worst album titles fun houses fine yeah but it's an they keep up album and his version is albums much better uh let me put my thoughts in you i know what's wrong which was okay this is mr funding in screwed what i mean the bigger problem is really the art work generally yes like looking at what you can almost any comedy record in you know somebody who's like move was i think and yeah homeless every comedy record bullets every comedian gets to be a rockstar for that that one day we you get to look figure your album cover via i did all right like you know in retrospect i don't have any stupid once i ask you know the last don't try to be funny on your color exactly don't try to be funny on your cover that's it that's it iin the war here quad split headshot via the worst people from boston we both novaya the what were their different panels viking different hats and i can't say it on the air but i'll tell you what were

were important which can into serbia but do you know some people like it so is known and i i know it's people love it and i understand that not being yeah i'm very sure there's no i know you and i'm totally teasing you i this book is about a period where you could actually get most of the people to play themselves as their younger selves and it'd be pretty quiet pretty close he added in various no it's going to be there like documentary and and narrative at like fictional adaptation series ideas around that's great i'm excited about it i mean i want to do more of that stuff anyway and always have or have in the last few years and so it's like fund to think about how to make the i mean people i've just felt really gratified by the kinds of ideas that have been a you know because as skeptical that the whole hollywood here at it so far than the people that i think we're going to be working with are awesome well we're did you how'd you start out where'd you end up you went to the academy graduate you got brothers and sisters yeah i gotta younger brother take that's a good name yeah he's get he lives in nigeria really he's a foreign service officer he's a diplomat o good for him the state department and cut them loose yes no um now not yet that's good maybe maybe nigeria this sort of like what i stand ninety he got there he just got there and it's funny we're talking about luminaries he's going to have lumina or something he's having he's getting married in december in england here on dan and he's going to have all this new mexican stuff we've been talking a lot about the new bringing the new mexico to the new mexico christmas vibe to london thoughts nice yeah so what would you go to college after you can ran away to fill it i mean i wanted to be on the rules like right away it was all about new york as obsessed with new york and with the idea of lake eastern urban magic get the eu's when he grow up in a smart household in new mexico you i i want to go to where really happens i like all this cowboy cowboy intellectual shit i that's exactly how i felt i mean it is disturbing to be talking to you about this there there's basically no one who gets out of new mexico so those of us who do all have the same kind of like course spirit about that if you go back they go back oh hi tonnes tons yeah i mean you're going back now i've been thinking about it yeah it's drawing i think about it to the way on wife yeah my heejoo like i don't i like i i don't i'm done with new york i'm almost down with la whereas from argun go this is how i feel you say i'm too young to feel it this is literally the conversation i've been having while i'm here i'm like i will always feel like i live in new york that i don't need to live there anymore and so therefore where do i feel good well that's only corral us exact cheese like me literally only corral starting to feel that it's the only play me for me is not quite corral but i always romanticise prowess but i'm a couple of miles away how you i think would i very close to corral but a all right so dan study what english and classics and your girl at the plan was only good was to be a writer now what a crazy idea what idiot would do that you can't be a writer what was the point of in new york and what just like hang out no the plan was to idea you know i was eighteen i didn't have i had a i had a homing instinct not a plan like i'm gonna come to college because you have to go to college like i'll go as close to new york as they can go and i was really good student and i cared about being gets you now i love school and great china japan but no the plan what it what happened was and this is the right call like i now understand this in a way that i can articulate and didn't at the time that i advocate for it it's like i had to put myself near stuff that would so i could be in a position to have what should happen next revealed to me brian what i mean later that's what new york is yet it's a no to be you know for me and and for others that that's kind of what the books it out here at sense of i don't know why i'm going here i'm just going here because it seems something's telling me to do that and i can't tell you why and i may not even know right away or for years but it's where my next myself is going to emerge on the oddly e know it's because the place it new york holds in the cultural unconscious yes for years since the 70s yeah specially if you're groovy artistic you know literary it it's like it it's grooms large yeah it means something to mean something it's an idea and hand but there but still to this day there's nothing like it i mean you you know you can i can't live anywhere unlike well but do you did you find always at like i was just in new york and for the first time in my life i went over to jazz at lincoln center as fiftythreeyearold and it's have always been there and i was there for for fifteen years on and off and i did nothing like oh yeah hey like all this stuff veiled me like people you go the museum of modern art i did once twice here but i am now like i feel like i'm ready to do that stuff in its fortunate because now i understand new york pretty fucking while i can get around and ought to do what other so if i go in for three days on my show again see let's do it but that's okay that is exactly why my i feel like my current relationship with new york is among the best that i've had which is like when you leave you are able to to be a kind of the it's almost like the first fifteen years are investing in understanding the place enough that you can become a named formed tourist when you go there so now i do that too like i go in from upstate you know every week or so every ten days and i do three days of city staff all my friends i gutted restaurants i do all these things that i had no energy to do because those so relentlessly overstimulated by the time i laughed at that i was like i can't even like i just want to hide and so now there's this the slate has been cleared and it's like new york it's fun again but that i don't ever feel when i was nineteen and started coming to the city from philly all the time i felt like mm i needed it too like kind of worked on me in order to help me figure out how to become myself and now i know how to be myself how did you go there were year ranked ninety eight i moved to philadelphia and i was in school my dad is a new yorker semi dagger opens in status in town via and my grandparents unawares there for a while a who's going to get that apartment come on you tell me about the survivors adel got your grandparents of art okay it's on has pink walls the who is getting that next ruth good men lives there she she's you know she's she's it's her place man here i mean no one's it's a rental it still like i know rentcontrolled renzo deeply rent controlled rental yeah your eyes are like glinting the cia is the new yorker area edge rooms juve everyday that have what's the kitchen like hallander yeah it's the last of the rent control listen everything you're thinking is true it's your fantasy come true it's like the per it's an it's walker they've this would be good always is when you've when i was there you like the idea of control was i i'd rent stabilize but that doesn't mean something i and stabilise to that that's like they're like it's not as brutal so really when you move to new york in earnest this is when this book starts yeah i mean i started coming to the exactly like i started coming to the city from philly to see show i love the story is it's in the introduction to the book it's basically like i i moved to new york the first summer that idea college says after freshman year i i moved to the city i lived in my grandparents apartment i worked at murray yeah and i got a job in a restaurant you worked at sesame street i had an internship at sesame productions or whatever that it was the production company that pretty sesame street that will you write in turn shed you're gone for showbusiness i was not go i was like this is the justification for me being here that's the one the ethics as all i i didn't pick it it was like available and we really i was like i need to go hang out in new york city trash camera oscar with no no they never let me near it wasn't a coup it was like i don't even remember what i did i wasn't near actual sesame street it was the production cut it was it you know is a midtown office building that was set not no would you how could you work for sesame street nakos he were seriously streets production company produces a lot of shows sesame street the crown jewel i was a lowly turn we love the you're acting like this is my choice yet one day they rolled in and they were like do you want to go to the sesame street sat and i was like nath no that's not out having no anxieties me i was i was i you didn't meet ernie organiser continued i wanted to meet rock voice mark i tend not grow her no grown all right grover and the guy with nights in serious who you're like all right yeah he taught me how to ride the subway right are you there you're working says mystery not going to not doing all of the things that i know i've disappointed you deeply and just i got a job in a restaurant 'cause i needed to make money because i wasn't in school and i had to lake support you know i had free rant that i had to lake right pete or whatever you run by close i guess whatever i cared about at that time records and so i got this job at this i got this job training to work at this restaurant crossstrait from grand central station said they were opening any day now and they are hiring up staff i got this job and we end of course it took much longer for them to open and they had anticipated citybased they had hired this staff of kids board hot city kids who went there every day for like four hours and got paid this lowly amount of money and did things like practiced waiting tables and learned the wine list and stuff like that and my coworker was nickel anc who was the guitar since strokes and he was in this band like hit with his friends called the strokes of now the portal opened and you're well no i mean no it was years that was nineteen that was the summer of ninety nine and it was i mean it was a couple of years before like albert the other guitarist had not joined the band yet they weren't they it was my friend nix like ban nick i was nick was like halfheartedly in college and they were just city kids and i was i mean the portal that opened that summer was not rock and roll it was new york like oh nicholas cool in in that he grew up in the city and understood how to sort of like wander wale and how to get into bars and how did you set just it was sort is it was what like i had been learning i it with training wheels in philadelphia that as a new mexico kid like how do you how do you orient yourself in urban life and let these places kind of lake you know wash over you and expose you two things you're supposed to be exposed to how to get the rhythm down and that like nick and i would just hang out after after pretending to wait tables and you know lake wander round office parks and smoke weed in office park teller fina behind off sparked pillars and sort of like just wander around midtown it wasn't and then sometimes i would go downtown to lake st mark's and sneak into bars and do stuff like that beazley it was like that was what was pal 99 summer here that must that summer was those were my marriage was falling apart that was the other big thing that is happening for every avatars you knew marc maertens mary and who's out more a yeah and then he got thrown out of that house in the other find to subway weighed down us instead it was way chiller than what you are dealing with try and dukan redo one man shows that was that are that is i was the best theater oh my god the west bath yeah that became significant for me later really yeah because all the artists where had their studios in there and still do it's still let me extra to yes rate on the west that the west village became later after i finally moved to the city in two thousand two became like my spot because i don't like coolness like i don't like i didn't like i do not want to be on the larry cider off that city will whites places for me when i when i moved there i guess was eighty nine the first time and then i went back in nine the four remember you saying that yeah but but you know and i talk a little bit in the book about the you know what happened then but it really wasn't the only put i was just a little weird historical artifact you put that this from the guys from the generation before radio exxon giuliani for two minutes well i needed that i've might do i thought i was well represented good you were i agree um so this is all just before nine eleven yeah and the you've you found your place on the west side where it's not hip with artists that are well no i mean i went back to philly for like that so what i'm saying is that the that's why it's this is an important about the book the s not bands like i wanted to be a lawyer or something i thought it was gonna be a lawyer i was a school kid but i was pulled towards this sense of magic and misery about new york city that is the idea that we are already just talking about and he hadn't yeah i loved writing but i didn't work from my school newspaper i didn't it wasn't like what what it was was it was like i'm i i i was being drawn to some expression of culture that was related to my generation that i that had not happened yet and i did not know that that's what i was being drawn to you that i during the next few years in the part the four nine eleven were all these bans interpol yesterday as strokes and in you know white stripes and other place like around the world there all the stories that converged in the book all of those people were feeling similar things like assent this basically the same age as i was and feeling a kind of like i wanna make something that i don't entirely know what it is and like the world is not really receptive for this kind of this kind of vibe it's not supposed to be about urban call right now it's not supposed to be about notions of near and what was it supposed to be about in a music industry is supposed to be about dance music erica in you know i i mean in england it definitely was about dance music or was about like postscript popstar th i mean and in my business it was like i mean in the writing what became my business it was like it wasn't that exciting to imagine yourself as a rock journalists because there wasn't a lot of cool rocked the end so that's right it was sort of submerged in jam jammed asked you for a little while they're right i didn't think oh i'm going to be a music journalists i thought there's something about the way it feels to wander around manhattan at four p m on a really hot day in the summer where everyone rich has left the at they're making me feel like i'm getting somewhere and i can't really tell you why and so i went back to college and i studied and an ice kept in touch with neck and a couple of other people that i owe you and he would come and play shows and then i would see in philly and i will go see him and i had friends in philadelphia who are starting to lake want to go to shows so it was like it was a thing to do that had enough in it for years it was a thing to do that had nothing to do with aspiration of any kind and that was really important and it was also like it was like traditional rocking aware coming back it was not necessarily art rock punk rock was sort of finished in a way and and i guess wakeham sort of 'cause like some of the bands in the book i was given like for some reason at that time when i was there in late 90s in then like i left by two thousand two yeah but i was given cds and stuff for iced up for some reason i have the jonathan fireeaters he shot up i do that's awesome yeah they were so amazing i listen to it and i was into it but like what you're with that have been have 90s yes okay so okay so that was that times out yeah yeah they were the yeah they were round is great ho right i have my buddy john daniel was involved with music so i was sort of up to speed on something yeah okay will and 90s wealth that's all right i mean but like like jazz it only o good if you were there i mean that theoretically lay the thing about looking at the book and reading through some of it is that like when i read please kill me that was the those were before me and i was when that was what everybody was going to new york to find was that that's what this is about no i get that with moscow eyes were going to find that for sure and you kind of right about that yes like that's we're all looking for that thing that was like just it was just the the remnants of it and the and the people that were involved with that you'll first wave of whatever made new york cool were just kinda droopy greyhaired dudes walk around in their weather payments that don't fit any more with somebody going like that guy used to be something yeah if that if they are even living there anymore but i i guess i just think that that's the continuum i mean it's not like every winning please kelme weren't weren't polling on i see the continuum of that notion of new york identity as much much 70s as going ponca much further i mean i think much scher further back that than just whole idea it's it's it's i mean this is later but it's fifty yeah and it's jazz it's it's fucking ellis island man it's like come to it's it's in the american identity of new york gonna come here and you're going to reinvent yourself and the culture all potency of that has is almost as old as you know as the city in some way and so but specifically in the world of the arts yes you know what what you know what came out of new york and and what sort of defined it is you had a wealthy people who were willing to kick in to make she had happened yes right yeah and a lot away sure to reject the of a lot of the factors but then i mean you know that for us because this is my taste in i i i think yours too like the punk the 70s punt seen in cb jesus just like i meaning please county was my total bible i'm obsessed with everybody and napa i love that music that's my stuff i came to that late you're now the earth your specialty is more material for the business card wait to the partly to the party on air safety and wrong kinda leadership skills doesn't look good for any of us march mirror merit love martin on but you know i mean obviously there's also the whole greenwich village like i mean dylan for most people dillon is the touchstone for this and it's so the idea that new york is this place that's constantly polling on a previous constantly kind of coopting and borrowing its own past self via to reinvent for a new group of young people essentially the a new for them version of the same thing how are they related to turn all right they can still find the space there if they can still kinda save their which is the question now but like for my for this book for young in the bathroom like i don't see it as a see it as just this sort of the the the chapter in the cannon at that new york cultural story it's just rose right into the bookshelf right there you know after police kelme and after madonna and light up before whatever comes next but it's just it's a stop it's a stop on the larger train i think that and what comes next is going to be a a prominent either chinese or russian trend do you have that i'm good authority seems like it that's the vets me speculating that summer noncash catastrophic start i have is not catastrophic at all as i say that so so when now way what starts to drive when did you meet the the the way great mark spitz i met the late great mark spitz pretty early i i assume he he served as some sort of guide to whatever the fuck happened to you while yeah i think he'd really like you putting it that way well what mark would say is that i thought he tommy everything i know of on so he would want me to say it that way i tell you this bright i've kid from new mexico through philly who's looking for a rock fantasy and that dini and blames outta some yes he's like i can help you out seles ruin your life and i was like great and say it's the glare sorry yeah he talks in his memoir about how i was wearing flipflops for spammy and he's like they're not shoes zia like he was very my new mexico vibe was pretty united wearing makeup i didn't like i was still kind of like fresh scrubbed girl that point and i think mark with space mark dea like you know bad bad asrat girls with lake peroxide blond hair and he was sort of like you are entirely to clean for me basically and i was like okay but you like me no no as a recipe for disaster who's gonna win well that's where it's later and he would say things to me like yes chased me you know and i was like hot can you do the thing amassing unity or what he writing for spin when you met him yes so the way i'm marklevinshow sara louissant who is also a great character in the book and one of my best friends was my roommate in new york when i first moved there so i graduated from college and by that time it was clear that like the city's music scene was happening and i felt i was like dare to it i was inspired by all of i was inspired i was inspired by and have sudden a there was something to write about nato i then was like i wanna be a writer who writes about this but i i taught secondgrade frontiers first 'cause like i can't be a writer thought that's nice i taught at an allboys private school on the upper east side uh glazer's no really has a double life for awhile we were real like fullon teacher major oh yeah misguided men secondgrade whether in how what how did that and why did that and it a two year and it's like your estate teacher and then you either maybe you kind of the carrying on of that would have been to go get a degree in education and like stay in school and would stop you from doing that oh you know i'm are on that cya now now he loved at he he would talk about how wake up in the middle of the night and i would go 'cause i had i talked to my sleep and here go boys get in line and you'd be like jesus who is this girl and is scary she's like yeah so now okay so now you're you're getting you're you're getting involved with the rock senior roommate is what is she says sarah was marks like little protege at spin so i met mark before i graduated from college actually at coachella the one of the first coach as i went out with sarah to see if we could live together we went to this rocked festival together to lake try it on here and on she introduced me to mark who is i mean it's it's in the book their their meeting is pretty awesome like he was he didn't understand instant messenger and because and he's mark air sarah i was like this sort of protec savvy little jewish girl in new jersey who is who liked his writing it's like high and i'm also girl he had like why is this window coming up and they can eventually she wore him down in the house and so she introduced me to him and we had you know a serious series of battles for about a year and a half that then got together and yeah i mean mark was my tour guide through he was writing for span he was a hot shit writer writing cover stories about all these bans and how'd you manage not to get all fucked up i don't know my i honestly i i think it's genetic i i really do i just i don't know may just have the thing i'd die went out and drank every night like everybody else and reich you know there is all kinds of drugs around in yet but i just didn't care that much about it for you but it's not good for me that makes it sound like something i get credit for and it's not like i get credit every not be compelled by that like the like to just a drink in smokes from we'd and just enjoy the music you don't have to go you know you i mean i like you don't have to divert alliance but it's it's it makes it sound like it's a matter of sort of will and it's not it that's why are saying connecticut's like i don't have i'm compulsive in other ways right now i get it i get it that's why i'm saying you're lucky unlucky yeah so that's how okay unlucky so let's talk about you know the the bands that define this thing and the ark of this book because yeah like i just i i think i got my first walkman album like six months ago okay i'm larry liking it so okay i think i got that guy so record i thought that was get those good singer yeah so the strokes you knew that you saw them become what they want us in then and then like the the white trips our guests were coming in from detroit occasional yeah but i didn't the white strips were not like sort of first generation in new york of that were like any who has that were the strokes interpol yay as an lcd soundsystem feel like the whole lcd soundsystem thing like people are like you got your view murphy guy got your mike i don't know what he did so i had to get quite catch up with dfa miyazu jonathan the guy over what is the aga he sent me all this shit yeah i like that the prince worn dance called record yes good first record i love okay maharidge starting went ahead to go find me that record like i said you have one of them around their way it not be you know we have one ring laying around here we were using as a as a as a like a a map for when you eat your time castle your way into this that's you will love james and y'all that's i listen to a no it's great it's great i watch the movie and i i actually narrated a short documentary five lcd thousands of heavier like who the fuck is this no anyway script evaluated out but like i know he something because he mental i too a lot of people like i can see how they met something that people can also see how they kind of like you know kind of like well there's a there's a gap pure that was once occupied by the talking heads yeah that we should climb in do totally the talking heads said that i mean that's what i got no problem that kinds of sending okay i am not jane so you're not to defend now i understand how music work tell me more i understand you tell me my understand that there is now out of new she it yes and that you just keep inventing the old shit i think i mean yeah all right sure i think the thing that all the judge the the period that the book covered with the book is about is not music it's about all the things we i talked at it's about it's about new york it's the central character it's about what it feels like for this group of people at that period of time under to do a thing that is eternal as we just described which is to be young and to feel on scene and to get together with certain friends serendipitous lay that you meet who unlock something in u n two in the shadow of lake at theoretical anonymity make something beautiful that makes you feel alive i mean it's pure that's like that's art that's young people that's new york city that's rock and roll that the but it's important for the book that the context is also from my generation are these people that we're talking about it's happening in in coincidence with all these other major global events like napster we just 2000 and nine eleven which is one hundred percent you know a huge part of this story obviously and it's about and then the reinvention of brooklyn and the commodification of brooklyn and the exporting of that via the internet the newlyborn internet to the world as this sort of notion of how to live like a lifestyle brand to be earth to by going to interview james he said i was trying to dip into that like the brooklyn idea in williamsburg and all this stuff in kenneth ease my way in he goes oh yeah that's all our fault like cool thanks scott and it's that's what so this story is about that but it's about that through the lens of paul banks and carreno and yes you know later jack white or the kingsley on guys or whatever and then off to england and off to the killers in vegas and around the world but that record we should nikola pile of what you did have it'll be about three hours them sti no than i i know i the jonathan firefighter that's a hall in allied it yeah that's a you know you get points for that that's a big crowd point the area the i like one thousand out is great i thought it was pretty good but those bans i mean to answer your questions such as it is it's like there's no like yeah there's nothing new under the sun and this is a retaliating of a generational story there will be i i believe that people make things new i i'm not one of those people that yadav a problem with appropriation i don't have a problem with with the of the evolution of music and he because like if you really look at rockets the people that really make something completely new or generally misunderstood and you may be years later people like i think i get it and somewhere they're like nato the other but there's a core group of fans that are sort of like worthy the only one said get it yet that bullshit any basically the story of the book too i mean if this is mark says this in the book i mean he's one of the greatest characters in it where he's basically like look i was 28 and writing for spain or whatever less was thirty something his thirty already and writing for span and like mark who had an encyclopedia harry say that pete accent encyclopedic thank you very much sandy pratt thing music and film knowledge and all that stuff of was sitting there in new york city loving york city's sort of but just board and that the thing that this that this that there's the sort of beginning of the book that everyone had in common energized boredom energy everyone was bored james murphy was bored he did not know carreno carreno was bored she did not know julian julian was bored gillian didn't know paul paul uh the interpol paul was bored and it was like in their own independent corners of this town at that period of time they all did something about that board and then mark spitz or sara or any of the other sort of non musicians but journalists future bloggers a and our people like all the different sort of um i don't know contestants in this in this like road show here all had in common that sense of what we have here right now is really not enough and we need to like build something cooler and no one else is doing it so we're gonna do it so when spits heard like i mean he says this hilariously in the book where he's just like you know when i heard the white straits it took me a minute to figure out that i was being saved because it was my job to write about mark mcgrath every day and like there it was boring it oh yeah loaded orient and that's the story idea like i get it i get it it's like well boredom mikey to classify all those artis as board i understand that but i think that if you in the history of of what happened with punk rock in the sort of like you know kind of strange angry apathetic posturing that happened is that what it comes down to though anybody who surfaces with any consistency may be board but their workers oh right well that oh totally i mean and that's also new york city like everyone in that town has to labour via the i got a want it yeah and you've got to keep pushing two two to sort of break away from the pack of garbage because in any city especially that size you know for every one may be original band there's going to be like twenty guys just tooling through rehash especially in an era where i mean it's hard to in it's hard to overstate this and it is crazy now but i mean it really seems crazy now that like being in a rock band i loved the guys and dumped than fired or talk about this and later the walkman they talk about how like telling your friends that you were in a band was like now i take us that late yeah it was like really didn't elettronica music kills janjaweed could do we have to go through this aid rallies yes on thursday is at sad than you know like you're gonna make us do that you'll biased drinks rate i mean it was like the least possible cool thing to do and and it was like lame and and kind of an opposition on your friends to ask them to conceive lesser so this whole the it's hysterical because relatively quickly people would be dressing across the country and around the world like they had just been thrift in on the lowery side but not when these bans formed but that's interesting because that whole thing you know that thrifty thing has reinvented itself with every generation of people yeah it's like the now like their thrift in 1980's clothing and i'm like no i know i now i'm feeling that to it's weird like his when i was in high school we were thrift in shark skin yeah not a better yeah yeah and then i had ended at kinda the whole for you know that rockabilly kind of boos like whatever the fuck it was going after the suits in any time we speak to someone about this like can we address this with the culture in general that we just nominate certain erez as as as take as as out of the loop of of going to be rediscovered some ambitious ivan around anymore like fortunately for now everything is made so badly can i know that will never happen you'll never never be thrifty 2017 they should is not going to hold up maybe we've inadvertently solve the problem rallying stealing the fascists that were previously thrift it yeah this is not even making shit that will hold up to be so maybe we just need a generation a cycle through that in like twenty years people will actually have to create new stuff because it will literally going at all disintegrate and have to create outfits said will withstand the heat of there i'm sorry i've taken me right out of there i did it i'm sorry for him you're not enclosed outfits with of'short new mexico's supposed to fair relatively well i mean waters going to be a problem but waters going to be a problem but we have the mountains we aquifers dory right on an akko yeah we give a lot of as i understand it no no eight i think we give a lot of water to california so mother fugger's he had one of the california's thirsty mansour okay so like i know owner free burger this one again with a list of names like oh i show you read all your quotes first come on of course yes okay then you looked at the list through an area in and i kinda poked around it like you know the chapter headings ps but a vote like i don't know grizzly bear the national i came much really lay to and i understand why they're good but i i don't know that i go back to the records up much tv on the radio maize i listen to their first and second record i'm like holy shit this is the media their incredible yet the a as the first couple of records i listened to her i had him the hives i had that record i remember liking so what is your problem nothing we're just get vampire weaken don't think i've ever heard him all right we'll interpol i think i got a recent record with like their back in a mike i missed it the first time pretty good we've routines just gotta whoever teens rokaya feeling about pretty good yeah kind of punky right yeah yeah i hope we will come on something and you'll be like you really have to go and do that is that what you're looking for ya well i buy a records i'm i'm mike i mean i mean a renaissance had music appreciation i'll send you a list i need i don't know like i have your book i know yet we'll you do though actually 'cause you can't start gone mouldy reaches yeah amazing did you play who's got the crowd i don't have it all right we'll play who's got the crap by the multi pages is just one song well that song in particular is your gateway drug for them dave across comedian i know him with his worse are you hold steady i like that guy greg gregory great right yeah he's a good talkers if thinker is good the killers i like that okay kingsley on first who records and crime what happened well y but okay that that's another alternate title for this book sure is where's the staying power while they're all still making albums and touring and dura al like literally all of these people yeah so like you okay let's talk about them what happened what did have well it's up first talk about like the whole that you know a nine eleven left in the world in that like in terms of near all over that chapter see that's another place right you would you but compounding the board white whatever that boredom was was that horrendous existential to terror sadness grieving like i think i talked to spits about that a bit did he ah but a lot of this came out of that well it didn't come out of that it riot it was positioned as gross that word is under the circumstances to be heard in a different way and buy more people as a result of it so lake nino none of these important records the first as record the first strokes record the first interpol record early dfa staff none of that had been was written post nine a lead and it was not a response to that ren before but it was about you know it was about all these themes that we are just talking about yet culture considered obsolete like sadness and anxiety and loud guitars as the solution to that as an expression of that is a response to being alive right it was like oh that's old news and then you know the towers came down and new york city is under attack and america is under attack and it makes you kind of return to the the sort of lake core aesthetics of rebellion and that's rock and roll so what are you want to hear you on here jack fucking white playing guitar you wanna hear the urgency of the first strokes record he wanna you want a kind of a manic toughness the that and i think so these bans who it's not like if nine eleven hadn't happened the strokes wouldn't have broken an englanda had already broken in england and kind of ignited this industrywide like doubletake towards new york before nine eleven happened there album was supposed to come out like the week after nine eleven the first one in the states so it was already kicking off but what nine eleven did is a couple of things i thank and this is argued in the book it it it animated it it increase the number of people who were immediately feeling the need for that kind of sound and it also turned the world's attention to new york city culturally in a way that it had not been it had not had the attention of of sort of like global cool hounds in that way in sense i dunno i also like it they were it was also the guy seventy hanshin for perseverance yes i mean ranked sympathy yeah you know you're bruce springsteen how to go to werleigh hurst tracy and got them back call tied to hit it and yeah and i think i mean all these bans talk about touring in the wake of that and being it off doing comedy in the wake of sure i and the but being cast is kind of emissaries for new york and again for this idea of what new york is about that the entire world on some level was either either loving your heating at that point in new ways it was it was interesting time because if you were new yorker and you did live there yeah you're like we're we're gonna fight yes totally and we're thinking about that now and and it and the other thing that it did i think for the purposes if this seen such as it is and tune day from tv on the radio talks about this in the book i think he when he when he said this to me it really kind of it was a turning point behind her standing as he talks about how the szekely he thinks nine eleven put a kind of pause button on the jansher vacation race there has already happening i mean the the sort of post the giuliani into bloomberg cleaning up of everything sure that would eventually result in the new york the slick anodyne near erni lives there no one does it's it's saudi billionaire's who have apartments for their homes yet they're summer homes that they like might go to it's me the ranch russian it's all yeah and it is it's well chinese i don't know what an honor i it's it's just feel like you've done it feels like it doesn't have a a cultural identity has architectural and the identity right now is money money has a bleaching a fact eventually on culture i think in right now new york feels to me like burnt out literate like whited out like nine i'm not saying that race i'll have her hands out in the way that it was burnt out was bankrupt brought down in the way back right that that like acid has been porn on it and it's it's blake bleached out like i don't know i mean i keep seeing you know i don't know what causes this but when a create is her your it has deadened yeah by capitalism yet money on and by people that don't that day they don't like it will be interesting to do really explore what is rooting there you know in the sense that you know it is completely antithetical that to what it used to be when it was i think the big difference was there was a time were always money there but the people that worked there could live this and now that central and what's funny and not ha ha funny but of course like the it's all connected to this era because that's way jane saying it's our fault is funny the in an again brooklyn brooklyn because it's all those people the new york became the kind of place where you would invest in that kind of apartment because of all of the culture that that re in live in debt and made it interesting and sort of buzz he and brand rival in that way and now all these people who bought their on some level whether they know it or not as a result of this this latest ingretation of that new york thing i live in a place where none of those people can be but this is also like in a way so boring because it's like no shit that's called the cycle of art madda called lake art versus commerce 101 i mean it's going to just play its that and held out over how they all moved out of the city like the that generation of their artist once they got money they all live here they orly or here or they live in new jersey or connecticut or are you not a lot of them keep sort of like i love this i understand this instinct i feel this instinct they keep places in new york like a little apartment on near the barrier rodal whatever lay in just to kind of be like no no i still guide of me i still have a place wrestle like this so this the the ark of this book front yo two thousand eleven sort of the ends in brooklyn beat becoming the like the the the wealth center of hipsters totally and the but also just that that did it ever have any integrity other than for sure but i also just think it's yes it did i'll answer that but also that the idea that that would have one of the things that's hard to see from now because it's so obvious that that is what took place is how unlikely that seemed that that would at the time if you had been sitting there in two thousand two and and sort of prognosticating that in twenty in ten years or whatever like williamsburg a place you could not get cabs to take you was going to be the default locus of cool for the globe for but it's weird because there was some would have been laughed out of that conversation what's really like i lived in the story i had an apartment in the story from 95 five hill like two thousand and two whenever they might sub wetter was just informed by the new known of the building that he now add the lease uh quick note with note under the door there were people like louis had a place in williamsburg there were people moving into long island city yeah and likes her was sort of happening but that was because you could get space fits dole rahab winning is that it's just like everyone move to williamsburg because it was cheap brand because in this to return to it ten days saying i mean it was like you could get free he indeed siddig met each other because they lived in the same converted loft and they were passing each other's rooms enough and seeing that the same shit basically was on the floor at each other's rooms and it was sort of like i guess we should probably talk you know you've got a same weird stuff in there and like loss and in that's not like it's so easy to be like wow that must have been so cool and it's like it's it's only romantic later at the time it's like i need to live somewhere and and and be able to paint place with that right but that's that's the story of the amine ripe but that context or that that framework of life has repeated itself yes generations generation totally though the yeah the law thathat's another title that we here but the thing about nine eleven that tunisia was saying that's important is that whole justification we're talking about in the money in the bleaching out or however you want a phrase it these are they his theory and i by this now is that that was coming much sooner and nine eleven pause debt because there was a sense i mean people thought no one would travel there anymore no one wanted to get on planes it was like leaving for a second it was like is new york's economy going to die this the is this really like are things you can get cheap they were rally are things are things going to you know plummet here is it gonna be russ 70s new york thing again because no one will tourism will dinro wanna live here and all that stuff is they're going to be because it was it was terrifying and it was like you know every plane that flew overhead it was i mean people there were a couple of years where and so what that created for the purposes of this book is this weird a period of uncertainty that was really a gift to these bans because there was a couple of years and this is my my hay day really of lake going out in seeing shows during that time it was two thousand to two thousand three maybe into two thousand four but fair li where it was like it was just wild everyone was like are we gonna die but hey let's party en route druggie and it got dirty and it wasn't that expensive yet rent wasn't going up really of sort of just like the whole the whole apparatus was trying to figure out how this was going to shake out and it was like kohl let's play the you know you should read boca for answer some of those questions behind the scenes what did you ever read that book securing the city on my god who wrote i like i like i recommend this book to so many people i did you secretly right it no oh could cover ominous yes it's a bow it looks like the beginning of every law and order old school lunch or episode is by christopher dickey who i believe is james dickey's son in the i still see him as a you you shows up on shows on cnn and stuff but it's really about how how new york had to create its own count yes i should read that it is to the injury yes 'cause it was like we had we're our own city and we ourselves yeah because federal government and the cia and the fbi were not talking real yeah there was in the federal government was not really stepping up so these guys know what was going yeah and it was it was with giuliani still who was like we've got to make our own counterterrorism force and we've got to have international alley yet ray kelly yeah food and this guy cohen associated irate ocala read this like and then i'll be like i should have talked to him for the buck this is my life like i wake up still at night is damage extradition don't even choke of add that why never writing another oral history ever again or only organized oh it made me move state to a cabin in the woods by myself because they had an emotional breakdown like it's so hard that organization is really a nightmare well you did it and people like it yeah and you know it seems to be all in their uae dill per is let's check it out they clear talk of what do you want from me i i think it is hilarious eiriksson i let my favorite people around the book art like that one of my favorite pieces written about the book was by my friend dan aasi who hates who does not like any of this music basically he's in the book talking about conner over since he loves turnovers but he basically doesn't he's a music nerd anna anna a rock critic and this it he's just like all his hand suck basically i mean not literally but it's not his stuff but the thing is like i have i like i i'm not a connor overspent but i have him in here handsome my best interviews with people who are mike i will that is why and say like i'm at that's basically i think i i enjoy the fact that this isn't your world i think that's more fun lagging learn the creator of service project to talk to someone like that then someone who's like julian casablanca's this my favorite rock star of all time you're like well you're gonna love this yet boy do i have a book free like the this is writing i take this this part of journalism seriously like it's not my job to write a press release for one of these fans its job to convince those who aren't naturally inclined to take this as interesting that there's something there well here's what i have to say i'm happy you kids had your okay are you gonna try to say that that was not condescending he has had a knock out of it is out of all right it's a joke it was it was it was a sarcastic coffin ha ha ha pa let's shift gears demar serious yet um you know i and then the private police state fire juliana of just personal stuff i mean like i i've and talk to you really since markelle passed away a eulogized him on this show thank you for doing and you know because i like the guy and i literally your text to them like would like a week before it happened here do you talk about what happened can you talk about it or not i can totally i talk about i liked talking that i think people are a little afraid understandably to ask me about him because it's france you romantically involved on and off your best friends he was on the up and up again it seemed yes 100 percent it's really tragic i mean the answer to what happened which is what i guess is like not known i suppose i mean i don't really know i don't know anything other than he died and then i i texted you too to say sorry but then i got no information and then you know you just sit there and go igor would have and what that you it's not he's one of those guys ruettgers bound to happen but he didn't seem like it was going to happen that way well a lot of people you feel like it's bound to happen and then it doesn't i mean mark was had a history obviously of drug use and i think most people assume that he died of an overdose and that's not what happens i mean he didn't he we don't know for sure because there was not an autopsy performed huh so there's no leisure a cause of death that attack i mean cause of death unknown as far as i know you ea yes so this is what you're not afraid to talk about we have no information kind of accept i mean they i guess they just think like i so i was here and you know we shared custody of our dogs for six so mark or seven an hour years together in from my 20s and then we broke up like 10 years ago and but we stayed incredibly close friends and he was my creative partner basically like that mark this book would not exist without mark he is the person on the other end of the line consistently throughout frame iin merrier well like naughty i mean sometimes like sometimes is needed grady stuff but more just all writers need like the the i'll people i guess that create the the sort of like hootie who is on the red phone was on it was like i don't know and this isn't working in what do i do and like help and also i just need to that it's like that was the dark we are really really tight creatively and he would do the same we would talk to each other about writing every day and our dogs and so i was out here and he had been in a period of incredibly badge oppression for a couple of years on i mean probably his whole life it had been really bad and um i was helping him in his his family was helping him you know try to get the right mental health care never quite came together for him and eventually and so eventually after a couple of years lake road than the month before he died he was better than i've ever seen and he may have told you that india he was like like running a little bit yeah he was taking better care lindo visit no no one he hadn't dan i mean i think i know that mark lied to me about drugs or the years he wasn't like here's what happened the night that he died he went to a bar on the night that i think he died he went to a bar because he i mean we don't know exactly when he died he went to of our on february second and he had a couple of drinks drink and a half with a friend and at six thirty something like that and he came home and he walked the dogs with this friend and he was inside his house with the chain on the door and the locks on the door and a bowl of pasta on his on his like coffee table they found him and i couldn't hear i didn't hear from him the next day and i was worried and i didn't hear for him the next morning and we he didn't do that with that i mean he the dog think mark loved dogs er that anything in the world and wouldn't fuck around if their howarth and knew i was all the way out in california i mean he was like mortar arctic about the doksan i am pia and that's how they a his eventually i woke up a bunch of people up in his super went into his apartment and he found him just slumped over on his couch with dinner on the table so like as i have never done heroin but my understanding is you get big bell right and also there was no drug paraphernalia in his house and no drugs oregon went yeah i mean it's an aneurysm or a heart attack or or what any he i mean the dogs were fine they were in that house with him for thirty six hours and they were thirsty and in america pasta here at left that here too viking luggage joni it in like pardon me asshole i'm hungry and like their sausage in that layer she's too short can get up to that just short short leg's well you know it's it's it's nice to know that it it probably wasn't some eur grisly relapse no i mean if fit you know i don't know enough about you tell me can you like have secretly donovan of heroin fight hours before and then go home and make dinner and then die from doing that i mean a dozen quite at up but i you know but it seems to me that he put himself and his body through and you not up to him you know you know and if you don't know what you're like i don't know one is less physical was i mean you could only had one he high made him go and get one with wh what was the informality all systems go but you don't i mean this is what the there's i mean i'm going to be dealing with moves it out over that out of my life by not heart stuff that well i mean right like this is if you have a blake blood clot if you've an an aneurysm is undetectable i mean you can't like you can show people and this we don't have any control over any of this in the illusion is that lake via if you take care of yourself and you get physical zinni's sort of like drink your green juice that there is a sense of of control over warding off death in it's just not like that and like mark abuse the shit out of his body but that's also no guarantee that he was going to die in that way and you can take really gets care of yourself and you can get hit by a but i mean you know or diet something undiagnosed it's just what happens and it's horrible it's horrible but the one thing we do know was quick yeah and he was there with the two people in the world that he loved the most which are those two dogs no good swear to god i i'm sorry for your loss and congratulations on the book and it was nice of you to dedicated to him of guel i my friend imran told a a really potentially off color but actually amazing joke about this on this happened because imran loved mark in knew him very well a lesbian he goes so that's what it took to get together because there was dedicated to my parents and they got for this is the only thing mark could have done and i mean you know you knew him quite well and you guys have a shared sense of real black humor and so do i and mark i mean i can hear and sometimes it's being like the biggest promised that book was there is not enough amee nso i had to be something that will yeah you've got to have the dark your mercy you don't you know so the
