A highlight from Exploring Art, Laughter and Resilience with Illustrator, Jason Seiler!
"Y en ese hombre, hold another bottle. Look a little closer, cigar and Moscato. An actor in improv coming from Chicago. Auto, make way for Paul Vato. Bravo, and welcome everybody to another episode of Palo Alto Presents. And today my very special guest is Jason Seiler, who, judging by your Instagram, instagram .com slash Seiler pants, you make pants. Oh yeah, yeah, I got mostly made in Wisconsin, yeah. Wisconsin, Wisconsin, China, Jaina, Jaina. No, it's Seiler Paints, Paints. Seiler Paints, I think I got the wrong guy. I need a pair of pants and I thought you could hook me up with a pair of pants, nevermind. Folks, I'm just kidding, of course. I'm not the pants guy. I'm not a pants guy either, now in the time of Zoom calls and COVID and whatnot. No need to wear pants. No. My guest is Jason Seiler, who paints. He's an illustrator, he's an artist. He does caricatures. He's done the cover of Time Magazine various times with people like the Pope. And who was your other cover that you did? I've done Trump and Pelosi and a bunch of other political people, Biden and Kamala, person of the year. I think I've done about 10 covers for Time. That is amazing, congratulations. So I thought I'd spend a few minutes talking to Jason about his art, talking to him about his standup comedy. And we have a connection in the world of standup comedy as well as the Chicago connection. So folks, please give Jason a very warm round of applause. And thank you, Jason, so much for being here. Thank you, thank you. Oh, nothing better than claps and laughter. That must be so different, the fact that you're getting claps and laughter on stage. Sure, that's almost not in fact, but that when you're painting or drawing it's such a solitude thing, that you go from one world to the other where you're very solitary and concentrating. Not that you don't in standup, but you're not getting that immediate reaction until afterwards while standup, you're getting it right away. You're getting the applause, you're getting the laughs and all that. And the groans. Well, a reaction is a reaction. I love it. Have you got any groans for your artwork? Oh yeah, yeah, I was just about to say, I do get reactions pretty quickly when I share work. It's kind of funny, because I have done a lot of political type work, but I can't stand politicians. The left or the right, they're all lunatics as far as I'm concerned. So I have no problem illustrating for anybody, because I don't have a horse in the race really. I don't worship politicians, let's put it that way. Every once in a while I'll paint a certain politician and I'm trying to take care of my family. It's my job, I'm painting to somebody and I will get the nastiest messages from people just angry so that I, how dare you even work for that publication or draw that person or whatever it is. I've gotten pretty serious. One time I painted the president of Iran, this was years ago and I got some serious, nasty messages from people trying to curse my family and writing me crazy things. I actually even got a care package in the mail from Iran. This was like 15 years ago and it freaked me out so much because it was just after I got all these threats. So I gave it to the police and to the FBI in Chicago. I just told my story and they took it and they came and got it, I don't even know what was in it. And then maybe, I don't know, like a month later, I got a call and they told me it was mixed nuts. It was a bag of mixed nuts. I thinking was that there was maybe gonna be like, man, those are some delicious Persian cookies. Yeah. But sorry, you didn't want, but same thing, mixed nuts. But then I found out from someone from Iran that that's actually like a gift of love or whatever, like that's a common thing to be, so it was probably a fan, but it still weird me out. I was like, okay, I don't know. People are saying death to you and your family, here's some nuts, enjoy. Maybe they thought you had a peanut allergy, so maybe it wasn't. He's American, send him some gluten, that'll kill him. Send him some gluten and a shoe. We couldn't throw it at you, but here it is. No, until somebody's paying your mortgage and your rent or your bills, they can't exactly tell you how to do it, but that's the thing, you're not a hypocrite. You're only going like, oh, I'm only drawing Republicans or I'm only drawing Democrats. You're going across the board and all showcasing your beautiful talents and artwork, so you can't let that, of course, stop you, and it hasn't, so that's wonderful. It is a little bit tricky because there's some artists that I know that only will work for the left, and then they criticize me if I do anything for a right -wing publication. But the thing is that I don't illustrate something if I don't, if it's over the line in any way that I don't, otherwise, mostly it's just like, whatever. There's a story about this person and I'm just doing a painting of them. Chill out. I'm recording history, okay? This is something that is happening right now, and whether you like it or not, that person exists, and recording I'm history with my painting. That's basically, and I'm also taking care of my family and doing what I love, so chill out. Yeah, agreed, and that is 100%. You're not doing the political commentary. No. You're just doing a painting for whatever article that is, be it right, left, so no, I don't think that you should ever, of course, need to explain yourself. I know that we're just dialoguing, but no, you can't listen to what other people say. And then, I'm friends with a pretty well -known cartoonist and he's very left -wing. His name's Lalo Alcaraz. He's an award -winning cartoonist, and I co -hosted the show Pocha Hour of Power with him on KPFK in LA, as you know, that's very left -wing radio. And he, you know, he'll go at both sides, but he really, of course, goes after the right, and especially Trump and whatnot, but I think he would appreciate your work because we also know people on both sides of the aisle, and yeah, that's just incredible. You're taking shit from all sides. And even in comedy, too, like I don't really get into politics too much in comedy because it just divides the room right away, but I like to make fun of myself or kind of make fun of both sides at the same time, you know what I mean? Like making fun of Trump and Biden together, you know what I mean? Like that's more fun to me, like if it's a fun joke, but yeah, it's different with the illustration because it's, you know, a client will call me and tell me like someone they want me to paint. They'll tell me the story. If it's a caricature -type editorial illustration where they're like wanting me to draw a situation, if it was something that I didn't agree with, I just wouldn't do it, and I've done that before. I'm like, eh, I don't really want to do that. And that's fine. They'll find someone else. But mostly it's just in the last three years or so with the heightened wokeness thing that's been going on where people are seeing them being a little bit more sensitive about things, that caricature, which is what I've been doing since I was like nine, 10 years old, has not been used as much in editorial work. And I've actually been called out a few times now for doing caricature that I'm a bully, that it's mean, and that they're like, how could you do that to people? And it's just like, it's ridiculous. And it's funny because it really, the caricature illustration and comedy, it's always been like very similar to me. The difference is when I do comedy, people go to the show to see comedy. So I actually feel like I have way more freedom to express myself. And it's like, hey, shut the fuck up. You decided to come to a comedy show. So get over it. But like with the art, it's like you're kind of just putting it out there and then anybody feels like they can say and they know what they want. And now everyone has access to tell you what they think. So it's a - Of course, of course. Yeah, everyone's got a platform. Now you're saying that you're being called a bully or you might be because you're exaggerating features of people's faces? Because I think that's what caricature is, correct? I mean - Oh yeah. There's been people that take it in that way, that like, I've been called a bully basically, which is kind of crazy. Cause it's like, they look at what I'm doing as super mean or that's like insensitive or racist or whatever, just as like, because of how I draw somebody and it's like, no, that's what they look like. It looks more like them than a photo sometimes. A good caricature. It really can capture someone's essence. But I've definitely noticed in the last few years, this shift in this, like people are like walking on eggshells about everything. So - Yeah. We especially notice it in comedy or satire and whatnot, you know, but I hear you. So keep fighting the good fight. Now you mentioned you take commissions. Now, if I wanted you to draw either myself or something for a book, that's a project that you would possibly take on, you would consider? Oh yeah. Yeah. I'm a freelance artist. So if you have monies, I provide the honeys. You know? Yeah. Yeah. Because I was going to offer, you know, I'd love for you to draw me. It'll bring you great exposure. I feel like a lot of people make that offer. Like, oh please, you know, do work for me. And you'll get a good exposure. So sorry, but I can't tell that to my mortgage company or my landlord. Do you charge different rates, say for individuals versus like corporations, like to draw the cover of Time Magazine, do you have a set rate? Is it the same as other artists? And you know, if this is proprietary knowledge, then by all means, you don't have to share it. But I think people would be very interested to know what can an artist make? Obviously you've dedicated what, 20 plus years to your craft? Well, yeah, I mean, it's different how it works. Because basically from magazine to magazine, the way it works usually is they have like a set amount for cover or for spot illustrations, inside the illustrations. And they offer you the job, you either take it or you don't. You know, so that's usually how that works. And a magazine cover can be anywhere from, you know, 1 ,800 to 2 ,800 to 3 ,500. It depends on who it is. And then it varies for different other projects. Like I recently did background paintings for an upcoming Disney movie. And that was different. That was more of, I got paid every two weeks. And so I had a set amount where I was paid. And so it's never the same. Like sometimes I do, sometimes for clients or for private commissions, I'll do a day rate, you know, which is usually I'll charge like 1 ,000 to 1 ,200 for a day rate. And so it just depends on what the project is and also, especially if it's a private commission, I usually, I ask for like half upfront for something like that. And then because I'm also taking on, you know, editorial work while I'm doing that, you know, so it really just depends. That's, it's not, there's not like a set thing. Yeah, I mean, and it's different also for, because when I do my editorial work, I work digitally, but when I do private commissions, well, I also work digitally for that as well, but sometimes I'll do oil paintings, gouache or things like that. Those will cost a lot more because they're traditional and they're huge and they take a long time. So that's, you know, again, it's all over the place. So it depends on what it is. Like if it's an album cover, let's say I've done a few album covers before, that can be a lot more than like a book cover or, but in the industry itself, there's not like a set thing, you know. Wonderful, well, thank you for sharing because I think that we get a lot of listeners that are getting into the arts or enjoy the arts or artists themselves. And I think that's one of the important things is, you know, monetization and can I make a living at this? So thank you for being free with your information and sharing, so much appreciated. And then how did you get into standup comedy? It's kind of crazy, but we kind of have a connection. You mentioned Steve Byrne before, but basically, so I've always wanted to do comedy. Ever since I was a little kid, I know he's not so popular right now, but Bill Cosby was my favorite comedian. When I was a kid, I would watch it over and over and over again. And as I got older, I just, you know, every comedian show I could see, I would watch. Saturday Night Live, anything comedy. And then of course I was really into Mad Magazine and that kind of stuff. So it's always been a huge part of my life. And I've always, I wasn't really like a class clown. I was definitely a weird, quirky artist guy that loved to make people laugh. And I would be silly with my friends and I always wanted to get people to laugh. Like it was, I would, you know, whether I was like walking, I used to sometimes for just for fun, I would walk around my high school like Charlie Chaplin. And I would just do the Chaplin walk for hours. Like I was just weird, I don't know. Like I've always just loved comedy. And then as I got older, I moved to Chicago when I was 18 and I joined, I was in a bunch of punk bands and metal, like hardcore bands really. And so I spent years touring and putting out albums with bands. And then eventually I quit and focused like on my art full time.

A highlight from Exploring Cultural Identity and Humor with Japanese-American Stand Up Comedian Michelle MALIZAKI!
"Thank you, Mr. Paul Vato. Greetings, ladies and gentlemen. My name is Paul Vato, and this is Paul Vato Presents. And today, my very special guest is Michelle Malazaki. I hope I'm pronouncing that right. That's such a traditional Japanese name, isn't it? No, it's not. Oh, my goodness. I thought it was. Well, welcome, Michelle. Thank you so much for spending a little bit of time with us today. Michelle is a brilliant stand -up comedian, a musical artist. She has recorded a few other podcasts. I first found out about her through my friend Christina Blackburn, who has a great podcast called Storyworthy. And I was a guest of Christina's as well. So it's a great podcast. It's a lot of fun, a lot of industry people. So Michelle, thank you so much for taking time to be here. We're live on fireside, so welcome. Thank you for having me on your show. 100%. I'm so glad that you were able to do it. I have so many questions to ask, cultural differences, comedy, and all that incredible background. Would you be kind enough to tell us a little bit about yourself, where you're from, where you live? Maybe not your address, but where you live, and where you've performed, and things like that. OK, I am originally from Japan. But I just found out I'm not a Japanese person anymore because I become an American. And in Japan, there are only two people, two kind of people, two kinds of people, Japanese and non -Japanese. And I am neither, I'm a former Japanese. Interesting. Are they called, is that Gaijin? Is that the right word or no? I'm not Gaijin. I'm just a former Japanese. Interesting. Is that because you became an American citizen, so you're no longer recognized as Japanese? The second I sworn in as different foreign nationality, then my Japanese citizenship just evaporates. I didn't know that. Wow. And this is because of the Japanese government, not the US government? I see. The American government that you have multiple citizenships. That's what I thought. But I think at that, there used to be a time where you could only have, if you were a US citizen, I thought you could only have a US passport. But I know that that's changed because I know people have multiple passports. So I don't know what changed. Yeah. But with Japan, Japanese government, you can't have dual citizenships. So just one. So as soon as I sworn in as American, then no more Japanese. No more Japanese. All my jokes about being Japanese. Oh, no. Now you can't make any more Japanese jokes. They might get offended. Oh, no. What am I going to do? You've got to rewrite your whole act. I know. Maybe you could divorce your present husband and marry a Japanese guy. And then you could make Japanese jokes. I don't know. Like, I'm still lost since I found about this. Because I don't know. I never belonged to any group. I was an outsider. When did this happen? When did you find out that you were no longer Japanese? I just found out recently. But I did not. Yeah, because I become American citizen a while back. Wow. Wow. Now, you recently went to Japan. Is that right? Yeah, I just did. And I had to get a visa. Oh, yeah, because you're not Japanese. Of course, he has a gift. I'm not a Japanese person. I have to apply for a visa. And then they ask for a picture. So I sent my picture in. And then they called me and said, oh, your picture's too old. You have to send a current picture. How do they know that my face hasn't changed? It's the same person. And you look very young. So it doesn't matter when it was taken. It's the filter, I think. It's like an automatic filter thing. Because my room looks nice. Well, mine's not working, I don't think, because I look old. So I don't know what happened. I've never met you in person, so I don't know. I look even better in person, I think. Oh, a lot of people do. Like, you know, you do Zoom shows. And then you never meet those guys, girls, people in person. And then when you meet them, you're like, oh my gosh, they are really nice -looking. You're like, stay off the Zoom. It makes you look ugly. But I mean, I look the same. I look the same. That's my cat. My cat's kind of famous for barging into international virtual shows. Very interesting, I love that. Yeah, but she never talks to me during the day. No? No, it's just when I'm talking on somebody else other than the cat, then she's just, hey, guys. What's your cat's name? Mochi. Mochi? Yeah, like the food, mochi. I also have a dog named Pinan. Like, all my pets are named after food items. I see that. Do you have any fish? I don't eat them. It's just names. We're not gonna go there, I don't think, right? Maybe. You're like, I'm Japanese, not Korean. Uh -oh, don't tell Bobby Lee. Awesome. These people didn't eat beef nor pork till 170 years ago. Was it strictly pescatarian or vegetarian or what? No, I think, I can't remember because Japanese people believe in many different things, but one of the - When did you decide to come to the US? Because I know that you had an affinity, I think, for maybe American television. Yeah, well, I wanted to, well, I came to America because I wanted to, okay, my mom told me, ever since I was in fifth grade, my mom told me to marry a white guy because half white, half Asian kids are cute. That's true. I actually wanted to marry a British person. I guess you can't marry two, so just one. But then America was closer than England, so I came here. Wonderful. And did your dreams come true? Did you end up marrying a white guy? I ended up marrying a white guy from Ohio. That's as white as you can get. No, I think, I didn't know, but Wisconsin is whiter white people. I didn't know. That is true. I grew up in Chicago, well, in the suburbs, in Illinois, which is right by, well, both Ohio and Wisconsin, and you're right. I think Wisconsin, you could have done a little bit better and found a white guy from Wisconsin. Yeah, oh, well, I didn't know. Next time. Next up, next, yeah. Wisconsin, 10 years younger, that's on my list. Yeah, go to a youth group and maybe you can find a future husband. What does your husband think about you doing standup? Were you doing standup when you guys met or how long have you been doing standup? I actually used to do TV production for Japanese TV and I've done like many different shows, like news about like surrogate mothers, like documentaries to sports news. But like, you know, when I tell people that I was on sports news, you know, you might think, oh my gosh, why are you famous? My hand, like holding a microphone like this was famous right here, just here, yeah, not me. Right, right, right, right. Now, is it true? I used to travel with the Yankees because they had a Japanese player and I get to go inside of the locker room after they take showers after the game. That was my job. What a job. I got paid. What a job. Do you miss it? I don't know, like it was fun. I mean, you go there, we used to rotate like two weeks at a time to follow and that was fun. And some baseball stadiums have better food than the others. Like Arizona Diamondbacks, they have good food, but like Dodgers, eh. Maybe that's a show. Yeah, yeah, yeah. We should do a show where we go to different parks and try their food. Yeah, the San Diego Patriots have good food at the concession stand. Yeah. Yeah, and also Boston Red Sox, they have good food. They got chowders. Of course, Boston. Yeah, but it's kind of like baseball season is kind of hot and then you eat chowders, but it's so good. Wonderful. Did you have to pay for your own food or was it a budget? Actually, at the press level, they have press food and you eat some of those and then you go downstairs and eat more food. I would love to do that job except for going into the men's showers, but you seem to enjoy that. Yeah, yeah, of course I do. They're like, you can leave now. You're like, I'm not done yet. I gotta interview more players. I'm not done yet. So how long have you been doing standup comedy? I've been doing it for like five years. Before that, I used to do improv. I had a midlife crisis and I took some improv classes at the Park and Rec. And then that led me to the Second City and I was just taking a class at a time and I ended up finishing the conservatory program. But improv you have, and I had so much fun, but you have to have team to perform. You know, it's easy to form a team, but it's hard to maintain a team. Oh, I know. I studied improv. After a while, people are not excited to practice anymore. I go, I have to pay 40 bucks for the session and I don't know. And so I started to perform by myself. I was singing and stuff and I had no idea about standup comedy. I didn't know at all. It's like, I live here forever in America, but I didn't know standup comedy existed till like five years ago. Wow, because it's not that big in Japan. Is that right? It's becoming like very recently, but it's in Japan comedy style is usually two people doing skits. So it's very different. And standup comedy, I don't know, I just love it. And you're very good at it. I've seen some of your sets there. Yeah, they're wonderful. And I'd love to talk to you about Second City. Was that in Los Angeles where you studied or were you in Chicago? Yes, that one in Hollywood. Hollywood, yeah, of course. Of course, did you ever do anything at Upright Citizens Brigade or improv? Yes, I also took classes at UCB and I did shows at iOS. Yeah. And I also took an improv class before, like way before when I was pregnant, like seven months pregnant. And I'm like at the, gosh, where are the groundings? Yeah, but I was too pregnant. So I'm like, oh, I can't do this. How long ago was this? How old are your kids? My kids are 16 and 12. Do you like improv better or stand -up better? I like improv. I love improv. I really love improvised music, like musicals. But that one is really hard to practice because you have to have somebody who could play piano or keyboard. And then you have to get a group of people who's willing to make fun of themselves. I like musical improv. The most. You had a song go viral, didn't you? Did you have a famous song about napping? Yeah, I had a nap time by Napster. It's a song for the, it's an official song for National Napping Day. When is National Napping Day? That's the day after the daylight saving time starts. You lose an hour the day before. So you get to take a nap the next day. I didn't know that, that's great. And your song is the official song for National Napping Day? Yes, actually, you know what happened? So I found out, I wrote a song called Nap Time by Napster. And then I found out there's a National Napping Day and I tracked down the guy who found it that day and I send him email. I'm like, I have a perfect song for National Napping Day. Can it be an official song? And he's like, sure.
Fresh update on "stand-up" discussed on Mike Gallagher Podcast
"This is your source for breaking news. And what to make of it all. This is the Mike Gallagher Show. Polls show that Joe Biden is really underwater. I mean, he's really facing, I think it's some of the worst polling for an incumbent president since Jimmy Carter. The Bidens had nothing to sell except the brand, which was Joe Biden. Hunter Biden sold the brand well, making the Biden family millions from China and elsewhere. The leader in the clubhouse remains Donald Trump. I actually called him after the debate and I congratulated him because I said, sir, you won the debate. And now, sitting in for Mike today in the ReliefFactor.com studios, here's Carl Jackson. Listen, I love a good debate, but that debate was a disaster. That was a disaster. I am sorry to say it. Sorry to say it. And again, man, I hope that Ford and GM, I hope they come around. I was speaking with Eric Hanson offline here. And what's to say? These people sold out America so quickly at some of these companies. They could move their operations to China. I mean, for God's sakes, I think they can cut up to two thirds of their employees if they wanted to, if they're gonna go all EV. Why didn't they stand up for the American worker? Why didn't they stand up for the American worker? The solution is, you know what I think will stop a lot of this nonsense? It can't be executive orders. We can't just use the podium or the power of the podium. We've got to be willing to use. I know this is hard for conservatives to grasp. We have to use political power. I'm a limited government guy, but we have to use political power when we get in power. There should never ever be any federal subsidies for any car or any car maker. If you make a good product, all right, what do you do? The people in the market love it. If they don't, too bad for you. Guess what you'll do? You'll go out and make a better product. A product that Americans love and enjoy and want to buy. And that was happening. That was happening. We had almost completely forgiven the big three for taking those big bell outs back in the day. Things were going so good, the economy under Trump. We had just kind of forgiven them. People were buying the F-150s and buying the Escalades and all the GM had to offer and Chrysler and stuff like that. I mean, but now, now these people are experiencing losses. Why didn't you guys stand up to the Biden administration? So I'm sorry, when these people lose four and a half billion dollars or $4 billion combined with last year and this year, I don't feel sorry for them. I don't feel sorry for them. And at the same token, I don't want to see any American jobs loss, but spare me if I'm supposed to feel sorry for you when most Americans are suffering like crazy and you're asking for a European style work week and a 45 or 6% pay raise and pensions up the wazoo that we don't get. I'm sorry. Sorry. All right. Anyway, I can't deal with that. I can't deal with that mess. I just got to be real with you. We just played something. I want to play it again. If you guys could get it lined up, audio clip number one. This is CNN's Tapper. Biden is facing some of the worst polling for an incumbent president since Jimmy Carter. Guys, it started. They want to get rid of this guy. The question is whether or not they can do it. The question is whether or not it'll be detrimental for them in 2024. But right now, keeping him on board in 2024 is absolutely detrimental because everything that they've thrown at Trump hasn't worked. And this is what the senile old man is basing everything off of. Well, how does it work with Trump? That's what he's, he wants, Biden wants to run against Trump. And quite frankly, he's probably the only candidate he can remember. So Biden wants to run against Trump. He is convinced that he beat him in 2020. So he's convinced that he beat him in 2020 and he thinks that he can do it again in 2024. The problem is everything, the deep state, all the antics, the latest being this judge. Have you guys seen a picture of that judge? The latest judge, is he in New York, the white guy with the Afro and the yellow teeth? Whenever you see a white guy with an Afro and yellow teeth, you know he's a leftist. You can spot him from a mile away. This guy is saying that Mar-a-Lago is worth $18.7 million or some nonsensical asinine thing like that. AG Letitia James, the same old tire story that she wanted to indict Trump for over a year or more ago. This is all the old stuff that they're bringing up, makes no sense. I think Trump, the purchase price for Mar-a-Lago back in 85 to 86 was $20 million. That's nearly 40 years ago. So to value Mar-a-Lago at 18.7, this is a joke. This is a joke. I'm sorry, I know I'm going a little bit everywhere. By the way, if you wanna call into the PhD, Weight Loss and Nutrition, toll free number, the number to call in 1-800-655-MIKE, 1-800-655-6453 or mikeonline.com. I'll take your calls in just a second, but I do wanna play this audio clip again guys as we get this set up. CNN's Jake Tapper, Biden is facing some of the worst polling for an incumbent president since Jimmy Carter. Audio clip number one, pop up on Eric. And yet Karen, polls show that Joe Biden is really underwater when it comes to approval on the economy, approval on immigration and the border. When it comes to approval in almost every realm.

"And that's it. Thanks for watching! You can support MrFudgeMonkeyz on Patreon. See you next time! Thanks for watching! See you next time! Thanks for watching! See you next time! Thanks for watching! So then that's acting as a flashlight. All right, that works. That works for me. Well, so Eli, your story began a long time ago. As a young child, and by the way, this is not something we hear all the time, that someone begins working for themselves at an age as early as 12. I mean, I wanna learn about that. I wanna know more. I know that we'll get some people intrigued here. And there's the other thing. I mean, some people's like, well, how could you possibly be working at 12? We're in the States, and we don't work at that age that early, and so all these questions, let's kind of bust those myths and get them out of the way, and then let's just make it happen. So what got you into it? And I'm sure you went to school with all that stuff, but that's something that's unique about you. Yeah, yeah, so my entrepreneurial spirit has kind of always persisted. It came to me at a younger age than most. I feel like just because I had a larger awareness for humanity and existence and society, based on the fact that I was just very curious, I asked a lot of questions. As long as I can remember, I have always just looked out at the world and been like, what the hell is going on here? We're all, I remember when I was watching kids play kickball at recess when I started school, and I was just like, we're all just like naked people wearing clothes, and we mowed down all these trees to build the school here. Like I was thinking very intensely about every little situation. So it just led me to eventually just realize that everything kind of revolved around money, and that if I can get some money in my possession, essentially I won't have to listen to anyone. And I was always about freedom. And my parents were, they were parents, they're telling me what to do and stuff, and trying to raise me how they saw fit. I had bigger plans. I looked at people around me, parents, teachers, authority figures who were trying to tell me who to be. And I would just look at all of them thinking, I don't want to be anything like any of you guys. So it was easy for me to really see through a lot of BS and realize that people were telling me things not for my own personal wellbeing or for the best of me, but at my deficit, it would work against me to listen to them and to essentially assimilate, throw my dreams away, graduate from a college and work for someone else, which is what I essentially have been rebelling against in my own personal life since the beginning. It didn't start out as like, I want to be an entrepreneur. I want to own a business. It was literally just, I want M &M's. M &M's were my favorite thing at the time, and those cost money. And I just knew that if I had enough M &M's, I'd be happy. And fast forward, fast forward 20 something years, and I can afford so many M &M's now that I don't even want them anymore. Now, I don't even, I try not to eat sugar. There's four other things, that's all. Well, so thank you for that intro. And I want to break some of that stuff down because you've touched on a lot of things that are important to our listeners. And our audiences are diverse. We have parents, we have younger crowds and people that have ambition and vision of their life. But you've touched on a lot of things. First of all, I love the wandering and pondering spirit of yours, whereby you question things. And I think that's something that's lacking in a lot of us. Unfortunately, not everybody has that ability to just question everything and ask why and always try to analyze what's going on. Why is this this way? And when you start asking questions, and technically what you find is like, sometimes answers that don't make sense. And it's the reality of things. I mean, if anybody right now listening to watching starts asking questions about everything that's going on around them, they're going to open their eyes to a point where they'd be like, damn, what the hell do I live? I mean, this is a whole different world that we're in. Because really that's what it is. We have this almost a veil that is upon us. And we are just conditioned to everything that's around us, the way it's been told to us all our lives. And most people will take it for granted. There's no questioning of things. Now, you started that at an early age. And I love the way he's like, why is the school this way? Why people are doing this way? We're all, and you see, asking questions. Now, someone at that age typically doesn't have that in their mind. I mean, and I love what you said about you wanted M &Ms and it revolved around money. Because if you have money, you can buy whatever you want. And at that point, that's what you wanted. And that's a big thing. And by the way, it is a trait that you have that is unique because not everybody has that. And then you said something very interesting that parents, and typically all people around us, listen, I'm a parent, I can tell you. There is a degree of that in all of us where we want our kids to have a certain way of growth and a certain way of future and try to almost guide them. And sometimes to your point, it's not really what they want and not understanding that specifically and not allowing them to be who they were or who they really wanna be, it's a problem, right? But you saw that early on, it didn't make sense that everybody, and I love the concept that everybody has this dynamic that we are almost conditioned to, it's robotic. We are born, you go to school, you're being told that you're gonna finish that school, you're gonna go to the next level, the next level, the next level, go to college, potentially get that master's or at least a bachelor's and hopefully that gets you a good job and then you wanna get more, you need to get more education and so on and so forth. Now we say the word education, I mean, ultimately today, you can have so much knowledge without having to go to school. That's two different things. I mean, being intelligent and intellectual versus being educated in a formal education format, those are two different things, but it's been the system. And then that system is geared towards creating labor employees. And those are the ones that actually do the job. And by the way, any entrepreneur out there somehow uses people to work for them and within their companies, but the concept is there. And everybody, for the most part, is getting that concept from the get -go. That's what you're being told since you're a kid. That's when I was a kid, same thing. My parents were like, you wanna go to school, you wanna do this, you wanna get this, or you can get a good job, and ultimately a good job will result into some money, and then you grew up and stuff. And I kinda bought in that Kool -Aid for a long time. You know what I mean? But you kinda challenged that status quo, and you basically, you were rebellious about it, and you did. And for our people, by the way, there's nothing wrong with going through that system. If that's what you want, if you're okay with it, then that's the system that you gotta go through. I find today, more than ever, people, because of the technology, because the access of knowledge, because of the smartphones and everything that we have available to us, and the platforms and the social and stuff, people can do a lot more things today, differently from what, like 20 years ago, period and out, right? It's just the way it is. So it's creating a whole opportunity for younger folks to do a lot more than, essentially, how it's been traditionally over the last century or so. So I just wanted to clarify that and break that down for our audiences here, because it is a very important piece where someone is already destined to be in the world of business, entrepreneurship, and whether it's a choice or not, how you wanna go about it. I mean, you wanted to go the other route and do stuff. Now, I still am not clear. I mean, did you actually go to school to do the same process, or you actually challenged that whole thing and did it in a different way? I went to college. I was actually trying to major in chemistry. I was pretty much just like, I'm just gonna go here to just say I went to, I like tried it out. And like I knew going in, I was gonna drop out. You went through the motions. I was just like, yeah, yeah. I just, and I started a Amazon store, which is like in the same vein of the eBay. So I've been pretty consistently doing e -commerce type stuff. And ended I up dropping out after like two or three years. And after that, I spent most of my twenties like traveling the world and just trying to understand other perspectives and just see as much as possible and just basically just understand why we're here. And pretty much figured it out. And now I'm just like, all right, I'll just enjoy living while I'm here. Well, hold on, hold on. So you said you figured out why we're here. I mean, that's a big question. I mean, are you able to share with us that enlightenment about why we're here? I mean, at least the way you discovered it, just curious. Cause that's a big question that I think we all are in the search for the answer, right? Like why are we in this world? What's the purpose? And it is a tough question. I mean, it depends what angle you go about it. I mean - Have you heard of the Sumerian tablets? Yes, but I'm not too clear about the details, but yeah. So the Sumerian tablets are the oldest document written on earth. And they essentially tell the creation story of humanity and can be corroborated with other ancient pieces of literature and texts that have been found on like every major continent. And they contain all the major stories in the Bible, like Adam and Eve and like all the old Testament stuff, like the great flood and the tower of Babel. And basically says that humans were created as a slave race for the Anunnaki to mine gold, which kind of is how the world still works today. Like we're all just a bunch of slaves that are trying to collect gold for our higher ups. It's essentially the same thing. Like humanity's just always been like this. It's just, it's a business unlike any other group of living things or animals. Humanity is innately tied to money and an economy and a mathematical algorithm of resources. And I think initially money did represent resources, but now I see money more as representing attention because, well, it can be both for sure. But the amount of money someone has is generally correlated with the amount of attention they have. Like any famous person you see, unless it's their first time going viral for anything ever, there's a good chance that they have at least a million dollars. Like anyone you hear talking, like I don't think this podcast is gonna be getting a hundred thousand plays for this episode, but if it was, we'd both be rich probably. You know what I mean? It's like there's - From your mouth to God's mouth, to Gazys as they say, right? You know, hey, you never know. This is a pretty interesting show. I think it's gonna have its own play. Well, I'm just saying that based on the fact that none of the podcasts I have done have gotten there. sort Not any of explanation for me or you as individuals, but I just think the attention factor translates into money very easily because that's why I'm trying to build up my following and do like branding and stuff. I just had my first clip hit a million views today on Instagram. So that was pretty cool. We need to talk about that, but yeah, we'll catch on that one. Yeah, yeah, that just happened today. So I mean, basically you keep pumping out a million plus views on your clips. That's gonna turn into money somewhere along the way. It's like you create a product or a service, subscribe to my Patreon for my podcast or my business that I'm gonna bring up now. It's called Golden Cricket, where I make cricket protein bars made of actual crickets because crickets are 65 % protein by weight. They contain all nine essential amino acids. They use 2 ,000 times less water to produce than whey protein. They're basically the food of the future. They are high in calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, potassium, and I'm also a standup comedian. So as a comedian, the worst thing you can have in the audience is crickets. So I figure we'll just kill them all and turn them into food. And there's revenge served in every bite. So there's a lot of layers to it. Oh, hold on. I gotta do this. I had to do it. It's crickets, Matty. Sorry. You just had that queued up? Yeah, yeah, yeah. Go ahead, man. Well, yeah. So like, you know, I build my following enough that I can pivot those sales to my product or not sales, pivot those audience members to my product page and convert that into a sale. Or - It's the right way to do it. Or I'm growing my music catalog and my podcast, like all these things. I'm creating a bunch of things that I can funnel people to once I build the audience. Which is, it's a weird thing to be trying to do, just to be consciously thinking about how can I appeal to the maximum number of people on the internet while maintaining my authenticity and integrity. It's a weird mental gymnastic you gotta do with yourself. And then I end up putting out stuff that I don't even like. That's what happened with this clip specifically. I made a stupid joke about being gay. And I was like, I haven't been putting up content much. I should just put one up. And I ran it past a friend. I was like, should I post this one? And they're like, yeah, it's funny. I'm like, ah, really? I don't really like it that much. I posted it. And I think that was three days ago and it's been gaining traction ever since I posted it. And it just crossed a million views like an hour ago. Instagram. Yeah. Ooh. And I've been posting a bunch of videos on YouTube shorts under Octavius Thunder. So if you like me talking now, then I do more of that on my page. But the YouTube shorts, there's something going on in the algorithm right now where it's just bumping people up. And I do these things where I film me talking to my dog and it has like a vine type of recording where you just hold it down and then it records and you let your thumb up, it stops recording. So I can flip the camera around and like have a conversation with my dog with his just like little face after everything I say. So I can make like these stupid jokes and then it'll be his face looking at me like that was a stupid joke. And I think that blueprint right there has made it for a very attractive piece of content that I can just do whenever. And so I'll put like 10, 15 of those a day out. Like minimal, minimal effort. Like I'll press record without even knowing what I'm gonna say. And I'll just make something up and it doesn't matter. And then they'll blow up and I'll gain like around 30 new subscribers a day. I'm up to like 1 ,637 subscribers right now on YouTube. And I've been doing this for like a couple months. Wow, very nice. So yeah, I've been trying to test out the social media virality algorithm for quite some time. And I just now feel like I'm gaining some success with it. So, but it's very up and down as is any success in life. There's one aspect of you don't wanna get too used to the stuff blowing up cause then it doesn't happen. You're like, oh, I suck. But then also like you shouldn't even care about it at all cause it doesn't mean anything if it doesn't turn into money yet. But also that's not true. You still have to care about it cause it's on the way there. So it just really jumbles up your priorities. Cause you've been taught your whole life to not care about likes and stuff, but then it's like, oh, well now it matters now. These are things like views and stuff. If you're running a media based business or you're measuring your marketing analysis, like these are key performance indicators that you would show to venture capitalists. Like these, it's important data that can affect financing.

Generally speaking, so the white dude that could throw that can't run, hit the quarterback, and the black dude that can throw and can run, he's the white receiver. That's the way football win. What value do you have, especially with all the schemes and the way football ran back in the day? What value do you have at a guy that can run? You got a running back for that. You have a full back. You line up in the power eye. You don't need a quarterback naked run. Those skilled athletes played running back. Wide receiver, tight end, linebacker, defensive end, had nothing to do with race.

And if you, if you don't believe that Biden has a sold Biden and all of the Democrats have sold our country out to China. It's very simple. This is very simple.

So Biden's son was proxy for him doing deals making money, and then when Joe was no longer the president, I mean, the vice president and he was a private citizen for that time period before he ran for president.

It's like, there are some Democrats that I think are very intelligent. I just disagree with them. But there are intelligent, they are articulate. They are convincing, they would be a good representation if they had their facts correct and they weren't pushing an agenda. So there's some that I feel like, wow, that person is. Competitive. You know, that's just my thought. That person is competitive. But as a Christian, I can't support things that are not Christ like. Especially when the court premise of your party is anti Christian stuff. I mean, what else do we say about that? You know, Jesus would not be pleased. Let me think about this. I'm like, when I go to sleep at night, and I think to myself, what would Christ think about what I do? Would I represent, how do Democrats get underneath at night and pray knowing that they support something that's completely opposed to what Christ presented? There's nobody under the sound of my voice that think that Jesus Christ, if he was on earth, that he would tell young women to go to an abortion clinic. I just don't, I don't understand where that Jesus wouldn't say, you know what? Go home, go to that abortion clinic. Because that's what the right thing to do is. It's like, what? That's like murder. That's one of the tinker commandments. That should not murder. See, people say kill, but as a difference between killing somebody and murdering somebody. It should have been translated, that's not murder. That means doubts are not kill somebody without cause. You're defending yourself in your family, of course. You may have to offer somebody. When David, see, somebody right now is like, well, we're supposed to be pacifist. Well, David, beheaded Goliath. If in case we forgot, so David was a warrior.

"I can store a rapping, but I don't want to keep rapping to y'all. But if you want to look up Tupac so many tears. He said, he said, what is it? He said, the drive by is taking lives little kids die. That's the part of the first part of the rap I was saying. He said, I wonder why drive by is taking lives a little kids die. You know, walking through the cemetery, it hurts. That's another song. He said, walk her to the cemetery talking to the dirt. I'd rather die like a man than live like a coward is a ghetto up in heaven in this hours. Black power is what they scream as they dream in a paranoid state in our fate is a lifetime I hate. That dude was poetic, man. And if you listen to it and put it together, you see, you can feel you can almost feel the pain of the black experience and majority of it has nothing to do with white people. And it's more so, you know, why is there so much drama and pain and hurt in the black community? I hear Oprah Winfrey give a statistic. And I hear a lot of black people saying this. Black fathers, a study from CDC says that black fathers are more likely to be in their kid's lives than white fathers. They're more likely to be doing their homework and I'll listen and listen to those statistical talking points and I say, I have to research this statistical marker. Because I know that people can manipulate stats to make whatever argument they want to make. That just doesn't sound reasonable. Now, I don't know how many white fathers and their kids lives. I don't even know where they're measuring and said. But I just know my own personal experience and in one minute I can explain to you very quickly why I think that they don't make sense. It's not even a reality. There's a lot of black fathers that are not there. You know I was watching a guy get drafted in NFL. His woman's there. His dad ain't nowhere to be found. Him and his brother and his mama. And every woman, every black woman that I've dated in my entire life,

But that still doesn't give the government the right to do any of this. If y'all were spending our money properly, maybe billionaires and $1 million on $1 billion would probably be more willing to forfeit some money to see some change. But y'all, we give y'all money for y'all to do transgender activist surgery protocol training. It's like, what are y'all teaching people about? Shut, stop all that. And use the property tax to teach our kids something that's meaningful. Anyway, I'm not going to go down that path because then I get frustrated again. At least 15 shot Friday into Sunday morning in Lori Lightfoot's Chicago. I wonder why we keep saying Louis life was Chicago. Is that because Brandon, yeah, that's weird. I don't know why articles say Lori Lightfoot though. She's gone. Brandon Johnson is the new dummy in charge. But, you know, 15 people shot, I mean, think about this for a minute. Oh my God, gun violence is out of control. A woman went to a school and she shot two kids and yeah, it's bad. It's crazy. But 15 keep people died in just the weekend right now. And that's not even that they ain't even a lick. It says, the sun times observed that a 165 people were killed in Chicago, January 1st, 2023 through April 29th, a 165 people were killed. Now, I know that there's people getting killed all over the country. But can we diagnose or digest what is happening here? They finish hit a bit of a person getting killed one a day, two a day. I think they're going to hit two at a by the end of the year. And maybe maybe not. They're going to at least get a murderer a day. well, most of these people are minorities. Most of this is done with handguns. Um. Then why are they going after rifles? Um. Why couldn't we make the news when white kids die, but when a black kid is diary weekend, nobody cares. And I'm not saying y'all don't care what I'm saying is that they don't sell. Because black leaders don't care,

"The most important decision you will ever make in your life is who you marry. There ain't no other decision other than your relationship with God, that you can make. That is as important and consequential as who you marry. A great man marry a bad woman, you will destroy your life and your legacy. Even if you get a divorce, she's going to take you for everything you got and she going to get the kids and everything and you going to be living in hell and today 18 at least. So you marry the wrong woman as a man you have just ruined your life unless God can redeem your life at a later date. And you ain't feeling avoid conflict. For the most part, women, you marry the wrong man, you will never reach your purpose. You will be miserable. You will ruin your life up until the point God decides to redeem your life. So the greatest decision you make is who you marry. And I don't want to hear people being like, I'm single for my rest of my life. Okay. It's probably two people that are happy single until they die. Everybody else really want to be married, but they don't want to do what it takes or they've lost hope. Or they just, you know, they have been lied to their whole life and they really think this is the best version of their life. God has made us to not only be in relationship together, but to reproduce. And that's the no greater feeling than being a father. Our mother, giving birth to another human being. There's almost no parallel to that feeling. But men, when you are dating, date with a purpose. Don't date with the bedroom pillow talk. In your mind, because I'm gonna keep it real on the radio. I don't know who's listening to me. But after a while, you can only do that with so many women before it becomes numb to you.

Not because you have to help your kids is because you never know what judge you're going to get. You can get a judge that want to punish you for being successful or want to punish you for whatever reason, and they will make you pay ungodly amounts of money in child support with no accountability on the other end. I really do think that the child support system in America needs to be revised and monitored properly. Because of her horror stories of dues paying ungodly amounts of child support. And what happens is there's no verification that the mom is using that money towards a child whatsoever. And therefore, it's like, oh, I get to pay day because I had a kid with a guy that happened to be successful. And

"I wish that we would stand up to this stuff. I wish that people would not be cowardice. The biggest thing that's ruining our country is that they don't even have to physically intimidate you. They can mentally intimidate you out of just letting the whole generation of women get screwed over. You know, one of my media guys just told me he said that the LGBTQ movement of the transgenderism movement is literally tricking the feminist movement into supporting men. Look how stupid let's just say somebody is so true. Let's just say that were just playing. Who's gonna be stupid at the end of this? It ain't gonna be the men. Thank you for that, now I was just playing. We're just trying to do a social experiment. And the women just then gave over all their rights to these men. What happened? Yeah, I think people ain't catching it, man. Transgenderism is saying, me and can do anything a woman can do better. They can look like a woman more. They can be more beautiful than a woman. They can do sports better than a woman. And they can take the lead on a magazine, they get beer contracts, they pretty much say that we can act like we all and do better than y'all. Dillon Mulvaney is probably more popular than just by any woman. And did the Mulvaney is a dude. And he's not even acting like a woman. He's acting like a caricature of a woman.

And it's your bother you as well. You know, what are we even talking about? I saw a clip earlier where this girl, these parents. I don't even consider them to be parents. I'm not going to say that I'm trying to avoid saying people don't go to hell. So I'm not saying they're going to go to hell or nothing. And they should burn in hell forever. I'm not saying that. What I'm saying is that these are lackluster parents. They said that they transition their daughter of their son at two and a half years old. I just, for those of us who have children, what are they, how is this not child abuse and sexual mutilation? How is it my son is two? My youngest. He know nothing about transgenderism. He knows absolutely nothing. You can not Jesus could come down and say Brandon, he's a transgender. I probably wouldn't even believe Jesus. How is two?

Breaking all the female records. All of them. All the Q OMs, which is queen of the mountains. All of them. It wasn't one that this person didn't have. Because the women can't necessarily keep up with the men. But if you are drafting with the men, you're going to get the same time as the men. Women can't hold up with the men. So you got a man that's with the men, but yet categorized as a woman, she didn't broke all the record women ain't never gonna get those records. Women will never. And it's just, it's maddening to me. And I almost think they want us to hate these people. And I'm not going to acquiesce to it. I'm not going to hate anybody. I'm going to hate the actions. I'm not going to hate people. But it's like they want us to be violent. They want us to be mean. They want us to grow hatred towards these people.

"The frustration that I feel from these tranny stuff is just crazy to me. There's transgender people that just want to be left alone. There's transgender people that just they got gender dysphoria and they want to live in their own reality and that's totally fine with me. I couldn't care less. I'm not God. I although I think God wants some better for you, but I ain't got, that's between you and him. I'm only entitled to care about my own Salvation at the end of the day because I ain't gonna be able to take none of y'all with me to the master and say, hey, hey, look, look, but I was messing up, but at least I saved this person and you gotta take, you gotta go by yourself to the throne. So I'm not here to try to be mad at you and worry about you. But when you were doing other people wrong in the process, why is it okay? Like when are we gonna start fighting back? You coward as women who are sitting on the podium with this fool. What are y'all even thinking? Do you want, do you ever want to win a championship again? Y'all should have won. It should have been the lady on the left, the lady on the right, and the other girl that didn't make the podium. 'cause that dude is a dude. That dude probably didn't even cut his mind off. Let me just say this. I have respect for transgender people more so when people go through the surgeries and stuff, 'cause then you're like, man, you serious, bro you really want to be a girl. You willing to cut it off and fold it up and tuck it under. You really want to be a girl. And you going through hormones and all that stuff.

I'm actually going to Europe and I'm going to watch the Tour de France because it comes through while I'm in Europe. And it's going to be the greatest experience of my life other than marrying my wife, my having my children and other things family related. But it's going to be one of the greatest experiences. I used to ride my bike about 200 miles a week. I thoroughly enjoy cycling. It is my passion, my love, it gives me so much peace. And as dangerous as the son of a gun, because people out here just texting and driving you over and kill you and keep going.
