A highlight from Bitcoin Starts Fresh Rally! (3 Things To Watch This Week)
"Good morning, everybody. It's time to discover crypto. It is September 18th. It's 11 .32am. How are we all doing today? We're going to talk about inflation. We're going to talk about Chainlink. We're going to talk about Bitcoin. We're going to talk about Solana. We're going to talk about hot wallet hacks. Is it? Is that what's going on? What is happening to everybody? And once again, we got Drew and AJ on the ones and twos. What's up, man? How was your weekend, Dizzy? My weekend was pretty good. I got heartburned for the first time ever. Weird. I've never had it. I think it's because I'm lactose intolerant. I think maybe I don't have enough acid in my stomach, but yeah, first time ever had it. Guys, that thing is tough. It's no joke. We didn't have any Tums. Never experienced it myself. It was from a chili oil and a rare ramen bowl. One of those, you know, there's like for real Asian ones. Okay. It's like a little pack. Mess me up. Mess me up. But you know what? It just gave me time to sit, be calm and investigate some more crypto. And I bought more crypto. I've bought more crypto in the past 24 hours. I might even share what it is. And I shaved the head. Point seven chain link or one whole chain link? How far are we going down the rabbit hole? It wasn't chain link because I bought chain link live. And so it's a new coin, everybody. Hey, AJ, your tweet convinced me to buy algo. Okay. Yeah. I've heard that a couple times throughout, you know, a couple times I've heard that. Look at the hair. It's actually getting closer to flock of seagulls. It is getting close to flock of seagulls in a good way, though, in a good way. And CCC says the best is because we're getting old. Yeah. I was like, I don't know what this is, babe. I don't know. Maybe it's heartburn, but I've never had heartburn. She's like, yeah, you're getting old. I got torn apart by heartburn this weekend. So what was your food? Mine was chili oil. What was yours? It was spaghetti with bison, homemade spaghetti, bison. That's a Drew meal if I've ever heard it. All right. You know what? I'm ready to eat. I'm ready to bite into some crypto prices right now. I want to bite off some more of that Bitcoin, everybody. Uh, it looks like, uh, the crypto market caps are pumping, baby. We are up 2 .1%. We are now at $1 .1 trillion, 24 hour volume. I'm surprised it's even this low. It's 37 billion bucks. We have Bitcoin dominance coming in at 47 and a half in gas, really low at 23 gwe. Heartburn, uh, when you can't get a calmness. Yeah, man. It was, I was laying, I didn't know what I was doing. I was just laying down, probably making it worse the whole time. All right. Uh, we have Bitcoin moving up, everybody. It is up 2 .7%. I just refreshed, but I want to do it again. 2 .9%. We have Eve pumping almost up to 2 % here. BNB up one and a half percent Lido stake ether up a also 1 .9%. Solana baby Solana is up 5%. Cardano ton coin on the weekly up 48 .50 % on the weekly. That's holograms coin skyrocketed the top 10. No one knows where it came from. You can see it right there. Just whew. And then it's actually a bit kind of low ever since then. Uh, who would have known that was good. Accumulation zone. Crazy. Maybe a lot of people knew crazy. I, we just put a video on ton coin out yesterday. Really interesting coin to look into. Definitely check out that video if you haven't yet. And to roof Rolf, uh, I cannot pronounce your name in the, um, in the chat there, guys, you know, where I can get AJ's full predictions. If you go to the playlist, there's a whole playlist of all of them in order of when they came out. So if you go to the YouTube channel right here, you click playlists, uh, then your scroll created a caffeinated price prediction department right there. There it is. Okay. That's where it'd be. That's where it would be. And we got, um, polka dot price predictions coming out today. Normally they come out Sunday, last week, things were really hectic. So the price prediction for polka dot is today and then it'll be Sunday from here on out. All right. All right. Uh, so is everybody ready to hit that like button? Cause I heard if you hit the like button, you increase the odds that your coins are going to pop up on the top gainers of the top hundred coins of the past 24 hours. So go ahead and hit that like button. I'll give you three seconds. I was to take a sip of water. They didn't hit the light button yet. Oh man. They just hit it. I relief is washing over me in an awesome way. All right. Uh, in the number one gainer for the day, it is E cash. Everybody E cash is up 15 % skyrocketing up to the 72 ranked here, but check how many zeros there are. I don't like coins when they have that many zeros. What about you, AJ? Yeah, I'm not a fan. I'm not a fan. I like, you know, if it's like, you know, zero, zero nine. All right. But once we get like past that third or fourth zero, I'm just kinda like, I don't, I don't know. I can't do this. It's a lot. It's hard math. I'm three thousandth of a penny. You miss out on a 10 X. Was it a 10 X? Did it reduce by 90 %? Like subtracting. Uh, I'm picturing drew in a tree knife and mouth about to jump down on the bison camouflage, black paint under his eyes, bandana, American bandana trailing in the sky. As he falls down with knives in hand, he can picture it. I can see it. I got jacked up by an entire hornet's nest. I cut down a tree and then I got in the tree to push it the way I wanted it to go and found a hornet's nest. And my entire body is full of Hornet poison. Is that why it was so swollen this morning at the urine? Are you looking like on purpose? Are you okay, dude? I'm great. I'm doing just fine. He seems, yeah, he's doing good. He's, he's covered head to toe in calamine, but he's good. Everyone smashed the like button for drew for being here. If I got stung by an entire hornet's nest, believe that I would be at home watching like Harry Potter or something. I wouldn't be here. I tell you that. Did you eat the insects? All right. Uh, so we have e -cash coming in as the top gainer, 15 .7, but number two is the coin that DZ bought live on air. It was up 9 .4 % on the news. Although there's a lot of whale activity. I think there's a 350 million volume just from the whales. Uh, 420 million 24 hour volume there stacks is up 7 .1 % ton coin. You know, part of the reason you see it up 50 % it is up 6 .5 % today. Casper up 6 % Solana 5 % coins are moving today and they're moving strong. Like coin up 4 .5 % Bitcoin cash up 4%. Uh, any of these coins, anything popping out Bitcoin is you never see Bitcoin, uh, you know, even this high of the top gainer. So ape coin was going on. It's a reverse DZ indicator today, but we still got to look at the losers and I haven't checked. I promise you I haven't checked. I don't know if any of my coins are going to be in there. I'm hoping not. I'm hoping it's like 0 .2 and then everything else is up to the upside. Uh, no. Oh my God. Can you do the show? I don't even want to do the show anymore. All right. I guys, I promise you. I didn't look, I don't know why roll bits. Very sad. Very sad day keeps on giving. Very sad. All right. Roll bits down top coins down. I did take some profit like two months ago and then I've just been riding in this emotional rollercoaster ever since. Uh, we have Iota and then we go into the low areas. Then it's 1 .3, 1 .2 % below actually infinity. I'm just looking for another one of my coins, but uh, no, it's just, just the second biggest loser of the day. Uh, but then yeah, very shortly after that we are in the green. So three, six, eight, eight coins and then we're flat. One of the eight is a stable coin. So pretty much markets are flat. Really not too much has fallen except for, you know, one of these coins. Of course. Uh, DZ cut his hair. Yeah. It's more aerodynamic when I trade. Uh, we need an inverse DZ fun. Okay. Interesting. Son of a gun. It's a great idea. It's great. I'm kidding. Well, what? The hair thing? No, the inverse DZ. Oh, the inverse DZ fun. Okay.

A highlight from AJ Got HACKED! (Here's What Happened)
"Hey what's up, I'm AJ Rice Crypto and I want to be honest with you, this video, pretty embarrassing to make. So I kind of got stuck and then I got hacked and I want to explain what happened to me so it doesn't happen to you. To be fair it wasn't for all of my crypto but it was a good amount of money and I do have a ledger in crypto you know on different places and stuff like that. I've already pretty much have been made whole from what happened luckily like I have friends that help me out and one of them has a pretty loud mouth, I'm sure you get the joke but thanks to Loud for helping me out and I'm trading it back. But basically what happened is I wanted to use a trading bot that a couple of my friends were talking about that was on the Binance Smart Chain. The minimum buy -in was $5 ,000 so I put $5 ,000 and change from Ethereum to Binance using a cross -chain bridge called Seabridge. The transaction Seabridge worked just fine and my money was on Binance. Naturally the same day I moved that money to Binance the trading bot was migrating to like another thing and it was down for a couple of days so I kind of had to sit on the money and just wait for it to you know come back up. At the end of the day I had never actually used the trading bot because I was going to trade in my old car for a better car and I still did that but I wanted to use some of that money that I sent there for my vehicle. So when I went to move my funds back from Binance to Ethereum the same bridge that I used before Seabridge wouldn't let me do that for whatever reason. So I had to find a different bridge to go back to Ethereum and in the past I remember I used this bridge called AnySwap and it worked just fine and then I learned that AnySwap got rebranded to Multichain and I clicked on their Twitter I should have read the tweets underneath I did not you know they had almost 300 ,000 followers a hundred people I follow also follow that page and I just oh they just rebranded everything will be fine. One of the biggest mistakes here is that I didn't even send a test transaction. You know to be honest with you guys I'll keep it real with you like I've been in crypto for a number of years at this point I've personally have written over 300 videos for this company I'm in the game I know what's up I'm well researched I know what I'm talking about and because of that you know I kind of have an ego that gets a little bit too big sometimes and I really think this whole thing was a lesson in disguise because you know it definitely humbled me a lot because if you don't do that due diligence and you don't do your homework this is the kind of things that happen to you and you know it's just a fair reminder that crypto is a treacherous treacherous place and it can be a scary place for your money if you're not careful and if you don't do that homework and don't do your due diligence so lesson learned in that behalf. I did not send a test transaction and I also didn't know that the multi -chain bridge was just kind of not really working anymore but I just assumed because any swap rebranded that it would be fine but this isn't the worst part I sent that $5 ,000 back to ethereum and you know three hours went by and I looked at my metamask and I was like dude it's still not there like what's what's going on here you know what I mean so I went back to the twitter and I clicked on the telegram link that's in their twitter page on multi -chain's twitter page you know and like I said you know 300 ,000 followers 100 people I follow follow this page like I kind of thought that it was legit so I get into the telegram and I say what happened and someone messages me and they say hey like can I call you and I was like yeah sure so I got on the phone and there was this woman on the phone and she was like hey like what happened and I was like well I you know send $5 ,000 on the crosschain bridge and it didn't hit my ethereum yet and she was like can you prove it so I sent her the transaction on bsc scan and she was like oh okay so we just got to get you to claim that money and you'll be able to get it back and I was like oh yeah totally perfect and but then the conversation started to get a little weird she wanted me to download this other app which was just the crypto .com defi app so that's fine because I know that's a real app from crypto .com and then once I imported my metamask she said that she wanted me to change the language to vietnamese and at that point I realized that I was just dealing with a scam like this is already a scam like this this is bad and I panicked while I was on the phone with her and out of just habit I just bought a sappy seal and I moved my sappy seal from my ethereum wallet to a different ethereum wallet and then I just started kind of backpedaling out of the conversation like hey there's no reason I should change my language to vietnamese it was all because the claim button that does not exist on multichain wouldn't so she wanted me to use the browser on the crypto .com defi wallet because apparently it would show up on that browser so I followed her that far but when she wanted me to change my language to vietnamese I knew that something was up and I was just like why won't this claim button show up on this website and then you know we talked for a couple more minutes and then out of nowhere she hung up the phone and I refreshed my metamask and all of the crypto left in my metamask gone disappeared just like that I never gave her my seed phrase I never gave him my passport I never shared my screen I never did anything like that and I still for the life of me don't know how they drainbotted my metamask and you know I talked to Justin Williams about this and he obviously has you know somewhere down the line he's been hacked before too and he told me that you know whatsapp has like an encryption where telegram doesn't have the same encryption that whatsapp has and because of that just because she was on the phone with me that connection is all they needed to get into my metamask and that does not make sense to me I don't know how that works in my mind they need my seed phrase or my passport or something they didn't have any of those things and they still drained the rest of my metamask you know it was a notable amount of money Justin has told me in the past that drainbots have hit him and they took the stablecoins but have not but didn't take the ethereum in my case they took both the stablecoins and the ethereum and the bnb and everything else in my metamask but they did not take my nfts which is very strange but now I'm scared to put you know money back into that metamask to use for gas to get my nfts out so I'm not really sure what to do there but the lesson here at the end of the day is one never go into anything thinking you know everything don't like have that ego like oh like I'm AJ writes crypto I know everything that that mentality is stupid and immature of me to think that way like crypto is still a dangerous place I don't know how to code like I'm not a computer programmer there's a lot of things about crypto I don't know you know this reminded me of that like AJ like yeah you're a smart guy you've written a lot of videos you know what you're talking about but there is a degree that I don't know and because of that I still have to do that due diligence I still have to do my homework I still have to read everything carefully if I would have done 10 more minutes on multi -chain or sent a test transaction like none of this would have happened but you know I was in a big hurry I was just trying to get the money back I wasn't thinking I was not thinking and this is normally how this stuff happens and on also don't click any links that you don't know about apparently just getting on that telegram phone call with that woman without her knowing my password without her knowing my seed phrase they can wipe your metamask just like that from a phone call connection from telegram that is news to me it might be news to you and if you don't believe me well it happened and they stole my money I just don't want to see anyone else out there make the same mistake I did uh you know luckily like I said I have friends I've I've you know I've been made whole and I'm trading it back and I will I will pay them back but you know it is nice that like I'm not completely drowning and like I said it wasn't all of my crypto but it was a lot of money and it does really really sting but hey it's a bear market we still have plenty of time to accumulate leading up and really I think this is the challenge that I needed uh you know I had a pretty good head start and I was like kind of doing the moon math in my head I'm like well where I would be if this goes into this by 25 or the next bull run or whatever and and all that's out the window and that was a lot of work and that was a lot of effort and it's embarrassing it's embarrassing but at the same time this is a teaching moment and there's a silver lining for for you guys that to not make the same mistakes I did and as much as it pains me to come on camera and talk about how I was hacked for you know as much money as I was hacked for it's very embarrassing but the the point is is that I don't want it to happen to you so with that being said I mean I love you guys and be careful out there and at least I get to report that loss to the police and it'll help with taxes I guess so you know there's a win there and with all that said my name is AJ writes crypto and I hope you have yourself a great day.

A highlight from Short Stuff: Evil Eye
"Elevate your travels with the city advantage executive card the only card with admirals club membership earn advantage miles and loyalty points on your Purchases plus premium benefits that take your trips above and beyond expectations visit city .com slash executive for a bonus miles offer travel on Hey and welcome to the short stuff, I'm Josh and there's Chuck and Jerry's here to Given us the evil eye. Mmm for all the trash we've ever talked about her and frankly it's working because I just Blew a tire on the way here to work. Is that a euphemism? No, no, I blew a tire and I lost my checkbook Mmm, you were at the grocery store. They rang everything up. Mm -hmm You're standing there looking and they were then they said you have to pay now and you want oh and you reached in your purse To get your checkbook out. I reached in my front pocket of my shirt and then you're like, does anyone have a pen and Twelve people under the age of 75 behind you rolled their eyes inside Mm -hmm, and they had a pen but it leaked all over my hand. They gave you the evil eye big Thanks to our pal Dave Bruce and the old folks at how stuff works calm For this bit on the evil eye what we in our house call the stink eye Yes, also, thanks to Antonio Paglia Rullo Who is the author of a book on the evil eye the evil eye Colin the history mystery and magic of the quiet curse? Dave talked to a lot about this because not only did Antonio write that book his grandmother was an evil eye Doer away with practitioner when he was growing up That's right, if you don't know what we're talking about we're talking about what turns out to be a very very old I don't know what you call a tradition. What do you what is custom? Superstition. Yeah, all those things where someone will give you the evil eye. Someone will shoot you a glance We call it the stink eye again. Yeah, and it's it's wordless. You don't have to say a thing. You don't have to have a What is a little voodoo doll There's a big there's a quick cello sting going on in the background 100 % you got to take that that small string section around with you It means basically well originally I think it was sort of came from jealousy or envy but can also be just someone's angry or they resent you or Maybe they're being greedy or something and it's generally always intentional But I was surprised to learn From our friend here who wrote that book that it can be unintentional. I didn't realize that but I mean I guess I guess if you're coveting Something are you jealous of somebody to the left of the person you accidentally look at and give the evil eye That's the best I can come up with for unintentional evil eye This goes all the way back to the Greeks and possibly before right? Oh, yeah long before the Greeks but Plutarch was maybe the first person to actually write about it He was a philosopher and historian as everybody knows and he wrote some essays that were collected into something called Moralia And he talked about the evil eye in that his whole jam. Was that your eyes are a source of energy That shoot out that shoot the energy out into the world around you and that reminded me Chuck of our stereoscopic episode where that one one of those ancient physicians would had their their theory was that we see by shooting beams out at Stuff. Yeah, and that's how we see and I guess that's kind of what it was based on. Yeah, totally the basically the body fills up with that jealousy or rage or whatever and It clouds the mind and then the eyeballs are right there in front of the mind to sort of Display for the world whatever the mind is thinking and in this case, it's evil Yeah, and it goes when you shoot the evil eye out of your eyes that was Plutarch's take and apparently that was the popular Take of it. Yeah, and depending on what culture you are from and your your ancestry is Sort of about you might have a long rich tradition of evil eye shooters or or Blaming everything that happens to you. That's bad on an evil eye that was shot your way Yeah, because it's not just stuff that happens to you directly like an injury or an illness It can also be things that happen to the things you depend on like your smartphone Exploding in your pocket. Remember what that used to happen. Yeah They are blowing a tire smartphones did They didn't catch on fire, right? Am I making that up? There were like mild explosions with some I want to say an Android at some point in time Yeah blowing up in people's pockets and everyone's like ha boy remember when that was a thing Yeah, and now they're right back in her pockets again back in the aughts. Yeah. Everybody's like, I don't care I love smartphones so much. I'll just take the risk. That's right so back to Antonio who wrote the book the evil eye he is Catholic and Italian and he said, you know, we don't even have like baby showers over here like that That's considered bad luck to have a baby shower. Like you're tempting fate or something like that yes, so it's a you know, sort of a superstitious danger and Over there and this is kind of true anywhere in any culture that has an evil eye history They will have protections against evil eyes like amulets and things like that and pregnant women would wear amulets in Italy Apparently at least in his family and they would say these special prayers to ward off the evil eye Yeah, and the reason why Having something like a baby shower would tempt fate and maybe attract an evil eye Is that it could be taken as like a boast or something and roasting can generate? Envy or jealousy and envy or jealousy can shoot out of your eyes as the evil eye and then your smartphone blows up in your Hand during the baby shower. Yeah, look at me I made a human and in particular babies children pregnant women and animals are the most vulnerable to the evil eye Although it can happen to anybody But there's different traditions and customs for protecting against the evil eye Depending on where you are in the world. Like you said in Turkey when you are a newborn baby You're gonna get what's called a nazar? Which is a dark blue? Circle with a white circle inside it in a dark blue circle inside the white circle and it's meant to be an eye And Chuck I say we take a break and we'll come back and tell everybody whose eye it is after this know ooh You friends seeing a doctor when you're sick is enough to make you sick or sicker and involves a lot of time and Effort at a time when you're least equipped to provide either so we want to talk about Teladoc, which is a far better alternative It's putting the humanity into health care. Yeah, think about what happens when you're sick and you have to see a doctor You've got a schedule an appointment and that could take days sometimes weeks to get in then you have to go to the doctor Even though you're probably feeling miserable and then you have to wait in the appropriately named waiting room Exposed to whatever the people around you are coughing and spewing into the air. It's a thing Well with Teladoc Health you can get in touch with a doctor 24 hours a day 365 days a year all from the comfort of your own home Just open the Teladoc Health app and get a diagnosis treatment plan and prescription if needed from a board -certified provider Download the app to get started today or go online to register or schedule a visit at Teladoc Health dot -com slash stuff That's T E L A D O C health dot -com slash stuff People are excited about what AI will do for them at IBM We're excited about what AI will do for business your business Introducing Watson X a platform designed to multiply output by tailoring AI to your needs when you Watson X your business You can build AI to help coders code faster customer service respond quicker and HR handle repetitive tasks in less time Let's create AI that transforms business with Watson X learn more at IBM comm slash Watson X IBM. Let's create a Horace it's the eye of Horace. Oh, wow. That was quick. Yeah Yeah, and like you said depending on where you are you might have different traditions for warding this thing off a lot of these countries are Middle Eastern or somewhere around the Mediterranean Sea I believe Dave Even said in his own family his grandmother in the Jewish tradition would tie Ribbons on cribs and things like that to ward off the evil eye or potential bad luck for newborn babies in that right? Yeah for sure in India They'll put some coal a black dot on the in Infants face and all these the point of these the nazar the red ribbon the black dot on the face They're meant to protect they're they're basically amulets or talisman that can protect against the evil eye and one reason why they based that on the eye of Horace is because in ancient Egypt the eye of Horace was painted on homes painted in tombs and it offered protection from evil or malintent or all sorts of problems even back then and so it kind of got mmm, you know how they take like You century know it goes from really ornate to like really stylized and simple That's basically what happened to the eye of Horace when it became the nazar. Yeah, that's a good way to say it Well, thank you and our book author also like you mentioned his grandmother Paglia Rulo's Grandma would keep a bowl of water in her kitchen and poured little drops of olive oil in there and look at the shapes and the patterns that the oil would take and Apparently that would inform her on the evil eye and if there was like someone in her family that was potentially in danger or a neighbor or something that Possibly will be or was stricken with the evil eye and I thought that was really interesting I don't know if it literally was like hey that looks like Our Gary our neighbor, right or if it's just you know, kind of reading the tea leaves, right? I'll put that olive oil was so good, too So you said that this all kind of came out of the Mediterranean did you not yes They've traced it back at least 5 ,000 years ago to tell Brock which is a city in Mesopotamia Which is tell Brock is a modern -day Syria right now and they found tiny figures that all kind of bear a resemblance to one another They call them eye idols and that they think that these offered protection as well Did you look up the eye idols of tell Brock do I didn't if? Et is not based on that. I will eat my head It's Identical to eat. It's crazy how much it looks like et man There's nobody who's seen et and would see one of those and be like, I don't know like it looks exactly like et All right, I'm looking it up and that is et. Yeah in that nuts That is et. I mean that is unmistakably an et head, right? But also even the body resembles et the proportions and everything. Yeah, that's true I don't see any arms and legs, but it does have that big squatty body. Well, thank God I don't have to eat my hat today Because they just pile on everything else bad that's happened. Was it like a sweaty old baseball cap. Mm -hmm Salty, you know, it's got the white salt streaks. It'll never come out. No, thanks So, I guess that's about it, huh for for evil eye. I got nothing else. Yeah There's all sorts of amulets and talisman you can use to protect yourself If you feel like somebody gave you the evil eye you can also say please don't look at me like that anymore I don't know what's wrong with you. That will also dispel the magic too. That's right.
A highlight from Bitcoin Book Softwar BANNED! National Strategic Significance of BTC (Most Efficient Weapon? )
"Major Jason P. Lowry of the United States Space Force wrote this extremely dense book called Softwar, a novel theory on power projection and the national strategic significance of Bitcoin. And in an interview with Robert B. Love a couple months ago, Lowry said he wrote the book as a step -by -step guide for politicians, regulators, or anyone on how to win the argument that Bitcoin is a national security issue that needs to be addressed by the United States yesterday. He argues that this new technology is the next newt, and the fastest way to bypass all of the regulatory bureaucratic BS that is causing the U .S. to fall behind as the global and technological superpower in the world is to take the issue out of the hands of the likes of Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell, SEC Chair Gary Gensler, who do not understand warfare by using this book to prove Bitcoin is a national security issue and catapulting it to the hands of the Department of Defense. Is Major Lowry onto something? Are other global powers already privy to this concept? Is that why Russia and China have recently pivoted and have become top Bitcoin hashers? Well, it's possible, because this book was printed and available to anyone around the world in February of 2023, and as of a few weeks ago, the Pentagon told Lowry to remove it from publication. Here's a tweet from Lowry on July 27th about the situation. For those asking what's going on with me, I was ordered to take Safwar down and asked to stop talking about the subject publicly. Doesn't appear on MIT's library either. Can't talk details, but things are good and I'm working hard behind the scenes. Appreciate the kind words. As some of you may know, I ordered the book when it first came out, and I've got a printed copy. So in this video, we are going to break down Lowry's thesis together about the national strategic significance of Bitcoin. So there are a few concepts we need to explore together to help us fully grasp the gravity of the theory. So let's start with physical security of scarce resources. Here on Earth, everything is in constant competition for scarce resources like food, territory, energy, shelter, a means to reproduce like a mate and similar, and every single thing alive in the world today succeeded at living and reproducing by using physical force or imposing a physical cost on predators, competitors, and any other living organism that was competing against them for food, territory, the ability to reproduce, etc. And to describe what imposing physical cost means, Lowry uses an equation where he explores the ROI or return on investment of attacking something and considers the ratio of the potential benefits or rewards from attacking something compared to the potential costs or downsides of attacking something. For example, what are the potential benefits versus costs of trying to harvest the scarce resource of honey from a beehive? Well, over time, bees have optimized themselves to reduce their vulnerability to attacks and to secure their food resources by imposing physical force on attackers by swarming and stinging them. And we can also imagine how this plays out across all of nature when considering most animals at the top of the food chain have pointy teeth, sharp talons, big claws, lots of muscles, strong bones, etc. All attributes that increase their ability to increase the costs or downsides of something that may try to attack it and increase their ability to secure scarce resources like food, territory, etc. Nice. Now with humans, the same concepts apply but play out in multiple domains in civilization due to our complexity, intelligence, psychology, physiology, and a myriad of factors. In those domains where we impose physical force against each other, on a global scale are land, water, air, outer space, and now, as Lowry points out, in his thesis, a new domain has emerged called cyberspace. So in each of these domains, to decrease our chances of being attacked, there must be a consequence. Otherwise, we wouldn't be able to maintain control and security over and access to valuable resources essential for survival like land, food, energy, natural resources, ports, etc. And as unfortunate as it may seem, warfare is the last resort to secure our resources if laws, policies, treaties, or agreements break down between different countries, civilizations, or similar. And we see it every day in nature. Lions don't negotiate terms with the gazelles when they are hungry, they just eat them. Snakes don't refer to contracts or similar between their prey, they just eat them. If a pack of wolves controls some territory and then another pack of wolves shows up, they don't have a civil conversation about where boundaries are or about sharing resources. They bark, growl, snarl, and ultimately, if it comes down to it, engage in warfare through physical force to try to secure their territory. So humans experience these same situations if we spend time developing irrigation and farmland, the only way we can secure it is by imposing a cost of attacking it with physical force. Throughout time, that has looked like spears, swords, arrows, and eventually guns and so forth. So the function of warfare is physical security over scarce resources to establish pecking order, settle disputes, and similar. Resources in life are scarce, so life has to fight for the limited resources to survive. However, over time, the form of warfare has changed. In modern society, we outsource warfare or physical security of force to the military, police forces, and similar. So while most of us do not participate in applying physical force to secure resources, war still wages on every day around the world. In the domain of land, we have armies that impose physical force on any attackers, or the armies impose physical force to try to secure land we may not currently control, depending on the cost and benefit ratio of attacking a particular area. In the domain of water, we have the navy that imposes a high cost of physical force on attackers like pirates to ensure our ports are secure and we can successfully trade across the ocean with other countries. In the domain of air, we have the air force that ensures we have access to this domain and that it is secure from potential attackers by guaranteeing a very high cost of attacking it with jets, missiles, drones, etc. In the more recent domain of space, we now have a space force that ensures we have access to space and can secure our resources by the threat of imposing physical force on anyone who tries to deny our access or threatens our resources. So at the end of the day, handshakes, policies, agreements, etc. are not enough to ensure we have freedom of access to our land, water, air, and space because, as we've discussed, there needs to be physical cost and a threat of physical force to protect ourselves from attackers. This is how civilization works and even though warfare sucks, a key benefit to warfare is it ensures decentralization of control over resources where no one centralized person, entity, country, or government has control over all of the land on earth, all of the rivers, seas, and oceans on earth, over all of the air space and outer space, and when or if a Hitler or similar tries to gain more power over any domain like land, it becomes extremely expensive and energy and resource intensive for them. Warfare is also a way to escape oppression and that if something starts to oppress you, warfare is how you prevent and escape from it. Cool. Now what happens when civilizations expand its footprint into the new emerging 5th domain of cyberspace? And what role does bitcoin play as potentially the most efficient weapon ever built that doesn't kill or physically harm anything? Hello, I'm Crypto Casey and in this video we are going to explore major Jason P. Lowry's theory on the strategic significance of bitcoin. Let's hit it.
A highlight from DOUBLE IMPACT LIVE WITH JOHN C. MORLEY AND HURRICANE H 81323
"Well, well, well, hey, hey, hey, how you been? I I've been I've been good, man. How you been? It's been a minute. Very good. And welcome to our new subscribers and also to actually our Facebook page is following now. And also, Jason Academy is following tonight. So thank you all for joining in. You all can be part of the fun live for the first time, thanks to StreamYard's new integrations, which allow us to add guests. And when we bring people in, we can allow them to stream in what makes it really easy and allows us to have a lot more fun so they can easily share their information without even having to tell us. And we can broadcast right to their social networks, which is pretty cool. Kudos to StreamYard on that. Yeah. And guess what? I'm going to put the the link right here so you guys can see it. And hopefully you can join us if you want to wants to to hop in. If you want to dare to join it. Most of my people usually just want to stay in the chat, but you're welcome to join us if you feel like it. I know there's probably some people overseas that have been wanting to connect in and out. So tonight, let's see, where do we leave off? We have so much to talk about. I mean, I think the biggest thing I want to share with you is when I was only, I don't know, maybe about one or two, I got stung with a B. Not a big deal, but I got stung. And back then it was a big it was like the end of the world. So why do I bring this up to you? Because one of my clients, I was doing some IT work for and a about week or so ago, I knew we had these bees a while ago. I didn't really say much about it. And they told me if I want some honey. And I said, OK. And so all of a sudden, I am just about ready to leave. He says, oh, John, he says, we want to come and take a look at our beehive, right? And I was like. Maybe next time, like, yeah, I got to run like, you know, it's it's it's it's a lot later than I thought. No, no, you ended early. So you actually be able to stay. I said, oh, I did. Oh, all right. Well, he's like, you're dressed perfectly. You've got a white shirt on. You got tan shorts. You're in light colors. The bees are going to love you. They're so friendly and you should come and visit them. I don't know about you, but I was just on the fence about this. And so I said, where are they? So they're in our garden. So I started walking out to the backyard, very petrified. And 500 about feet away from the garden, not even the high, but 500 feet away from the garden. And I can see the hives, not just one, but like four of them. And each one has 10000 bees. And I know you do not want to go there. He's like, John, you got to come a little closer. I say closer than this. He's got to come in the garden. Oh, I guess I come a little closer. So I came closer to the outside of the gate. So now I'm within about 400 or 500 feet of the actual beehive. I said, I think this is close enough. He's you're not going to see anything out there. I said, it looks really nice. I said, it looks like they're working really hard. I can see them flying around. No, no, no, no, no. You're not going to see the queen. I can see the guys. I said, I believe you. It's there. No, no, no. You're not going to learn anything out there. I said, I can get a book. No, no, no, no. You got to come and see them. All right. So I opened the gate against my better judge. He's like, there are nice bees. Just don't make any sudden moves. Don't interact. Don't don't swat them. And you're going to be just fine. Like, OK, I opened the gate to the little little garden there. I close it as soon as I do this. A few bees start coming around me. Then a few more. Then with a few minutes, there is some more swarming around me. And now there's even a lot more swarming around my legs and my arms. And I was like, oh, God, you got to come a little closer, John. You're you're not going to see. I see I'm seeing plenty of bees right here. No, you got to come and see the hive. You think we should ask the bees? Is it OK if I visit your home? Do you mind if I walk over there? Is that OK with you guys? Do you mind? And so he goes, yeah. He says that they want you to come and see it. I said, all right. So I start walking to the hive and I see the queen bee and I see the worker bee and the drone bees. And I see the other bees coming in now. Oh, this is very interesting. It's very nice to visit you. I said, I can't stay very long. I have to go. But thank you for showing me your home, bees. He's like, no, you haven't seen anything. I said, I've seen a lot. He said, well, look at the honeycomb. I said, oh, the honeycomb is nice. You see how there's a size? I said, yeah. You see how the bees are flapping their wings really fast to make the honey from the nectar? I said, yeah, yeah. And if you look at that bee, he's starting to to coat it with the beeswax that they have naturally inside them to keep it from getting, you know, from from drying out. I said, wow, interesting. I don't know about you, but I just want to get the heck out of there. So these bees are all around me. Nothing stung me. And I'm trying to not make any sudden movements. I said, how do I get out of here? He says, it's really simply says that you start walking away from the hive. They'll start moving away from you as you leave the garden. They'll within a few seconds be totally away from you. So I said, I got to get going. So I started walking away from the beehive. Few feet, few feet, few feet, 100 feet, two and three. And they start leaving me a little bit. But they're still around me. I leave the garden and within about 10 or 20 seconds, they're all gone. I said, oh, thank you, God. For keeping me safe and not letting me get stung and letting me learn about bees, I say, you know what, H .H.? This is a perfect story for my next article. I learned two things from that one, the importance of being humble. And the other thing I learned bees was that are dying. And I said, I bet I could tell a story about the bee's life. That'd be pretty cool because I don't use that much. And that was not on my agenda to be talking about bees and how they work and everything. I said, I bet there's probably a company that has something out there with A .I. and saving the bees. I just thought of this. And sure enough, I found this company, Beeswise, in another country selling a Beeswise home for two thousand dollars and just 400 dollars a month with A .I. controls to manage the environment, a robotic arm inside that could do beekeeping remotely, even harvest the honey. Instead of pesticides, they would heat the frames hot enough so that the insects would just drop off. So this is interesting. And each basically home can hold 10 hives. So that's 10000 bees per hive. That's a hundred thousand bees per one of these A .I. homes. OK, John. I'm here. Yeah, yeah, I think there's some some static that came, you know, I think you moved something and we had some static. There's just I'm not sure. OK, I won't move. You know, not moving. Just like I think you hit something and then we started getting some static. I hit the gas, but there was nothing. Yeah, nothing. Yeah, something like you. It stops and it comes back when you move in. I don't know if there's electronics that are getting involved in the discussion. You know, I guess we have we don't have to worry just about bees. We have to worry about static, you know, from a frequency business here. Yeah, absolutely. The frequency. So the the article title, in case any of you guys want to read it. This article just released the other day. I'm really proud of it. It's called Bee Light and how A .I. will protect them. And when you look at this home and you see these bees, it doesn't look natural that all these bees are like in a computer environment. It looks like something that would give you a heart attack.
A highlight from 110: Part 1: Ryan Steck is a Spy - The Real Book Spy
"Ola, ola, ola, amigos, amigos, players, playwrights, dududettes, everybody in between, welcome back to episode 110. The 110th ongoing attempt to remove us from podcast land has failed. I can say, I'm not impressed with us, but I'm impressed we're still on the air, I have to say that. We're like cockroaches, Murph, we can survive a nuclear blast, we're still here. Turn the light on, we'll scurry away, but we're coming back. We're coming back, all right. Speaking of coming back, hey guys, glad that you came back to listen to us. Hey, you know something I keep forgetting to say, but just, you know, no matter what podcast platform you're on, hit that subscribe button so that it automatically downloads into your feed so you can hear us, hear the stories that are going to come out of this. But, you know, hey, just hit that subscribe button where you are, it increases our numbers so that Murph can afford a yacht. He needs a yacht. He's got a big lake out back. He's got alligator shoes now. Now he needs a yacht. I don't know, man. I'm reading the book of one of our future guests here. I won't let the cat out of the bag yet. But after reading what happens on some of those boats, I don't think I want to go out in the ocean anymore. Speaking of the upcoming guest, we won't give it away, but we will say that it was another series was made out of this person, this author's books. A popular series too. Very popular series. One of the longest running series on one of the networks. And so this will be fun. But anyway, let's get rid of, but we started off with the housekeeping. Hit the subscribe, but also hit those five stars, Apple, Spotify, wherever you're listening. Just remember Stitcher is no longer. If you're on Stitcher, head to another platform. Also head on over to our website, gameofcrimespodcast .com. That's where you will find the books for our guests we have coming up, for our guests coming up in a while. And we just got a note to one of our buddies, Pete Friselli. We'll talk about this later, but his paperback will be out in March. So we will obviously give you guys an idea about that. We'll talk about that because he's got a book coming out called The Deadly Path. It's about Operation Fast and Furious. And guess who got to write the forward for that book? Well, somebody who knows how to write would probably be Connie. You probably dictated to her. Well, fortunately we had Grammarly. There you go. That's one of the bennies of having a great sponsor like Grammarly. Grammarly, Murph wrote it and Grammarly made it sound good. There you go. Thank you Grammarly. Also follow us on that thing. They call the social media at Game of Crimes on Twitter, Game of Crimes podcast on Facebook and the Instagram. Also, go over Game of Crimes fans. Just type that in. Our favorite mafia queen, Sandy Salvato, the ruler with the velvet glove over that iron fist, by the way. Yeah. Don't take her off. We'll let you in. All right. So just answer a couple of questions. Get close, join the hilarity, the jocularity and it's insularity because we're a private group. You got to answer a couple of questions. So things get wild and we actually have had a couple of good stories came out. She just posted one. She was pissed. I don't know if you saw that Murph, but a Seminole County detective has been arrested for notifying targets child of solicitation stings. Yeah, and these were people who were soliciting. No children were involved. No children were harmed in the actual making of the arrest, but he was notifying them about through encrypted apps or other stuff, notifying the targets. Hey, this is a setup. Don't show up. You know what? This coming Tuesday, next week, I'm going to the board meeting for the Orlando Police Foundation, which is not only Orlando PD, but it's also Osceola County, Orange County and Seminole County. So the sheriffs will be there and they just invited me to speak at their fall gala this year, the big fundraiser. So I'm going to have to ask him about that. You know what? There's probably some good stories up there that we can bring here on Game of Crimes. Absolutely, absolutely. And that will factor into an announcement we may have for you later. We have a call coming up on Monday as this podcast is being released with our agents at UTA. Something may be in the works. Yeah, baby. We'll see. Speaking of being in the works, you need to work on heading on over to Patreon. Patreon .com slash Game of Crimes. That's where you need to be. We've had some good contentious stuff out there. We've had some funny stuff. 911, what's your emergency? We've got Q &A coming up. We've already fielding questions. So if you're hearing this and you're part of Patreon or you want to be part of Patreon, get your questions into us. We answer everything, even on the installment plan. Oh, and it's, you guys, I mean, just, you got to listen to that. Cause we, we give a little, we give a little hints and clues to, to our patrons that support us about what's upcoming. And, and, you know, they've got a good idea of, of some of our guests that are coming up really soon that I think you guys are going to like. And by the way, one of them will be a world premiere of a world famous name that was just in a huge movie. Huge, huge. It's huge. That has never been on a podcast before. Never been on a podcast. We got him first. We got him first. Took the US Marshals. You talk about dog and determination. Yeah. And a, and a selfie of a finger from John Bernthal to make this happen. Thank you, John. And John knows who we're talking about. Yeah. You know who we are. All right. So, but head on over there, guys. We've got a lot of good stuff coming out. So that is patreon .com slash Game of Crimes. But now, quick disclaimer. This is a show about crime. We talk about bad people doing bad things and bad people doing bad things to good people. We take the story seriously. But what Murph? If you haven't figured it out yet, we never take ourselves serious. Except maybe on Patreon. We get a little, we get on our soap boxes occasionally there. Yeah, we do. And there's some comments about that. So I'll have to tell you about it later. Oh, but hey, but in the meantime, you know what time it is, right? Guess what time it is? Let me ask you, guess what time it is? What, guess what time it is? I bet it's time for small town police blood. Bonanza. All right. Hey, Murph, have you ever been in a sticky situation in an investigation? Oh, yeah, but you weren't in this sticky situation. You mean literally or figuratively? Police in Pasadena, Texas are on the lookout. A 12 -year -old girl told KHOU -TV that she was shopping at a drugstore last week when she felt a wad of something sizzling in her ponytail. It turned out to be glue. So they have a sticky, you know, have a sticky investigation going on. The sticky bandits have attacked. Not only that, she had to cut off some of her hair. Managers say another customer had glued sprayed onto her earlier at the same drugstore and they're investigating a similar incident at a nearby grocery store. Why the hell would you go around spraying glue in people's hair? You're the sticky bandit. That means, remember the wet bandits from Home Alone? These guys are the sticky bandits. Oh, that's just so nasty to even be called that. Well, unlike that lady who thought Gorilla Glue was like a way to keep her hair. Remember that one? She put Gorilla Glue. It will keep your hair. It will, but folks, oh my God. But this was funny, Steve. I got these out of the Bristol Herald Courier out of Bristol, Tennessee. I thought, let me go to kind of a smaller area, you know, get some stuff. So that was one story, Steve. Here's another story. This comes out of Iowa City, Iowa. So, you know, people rob banks for the strangest things, right? A 19 year old North Liberty man used cash stolen at a bank robbery to play for a bond. He had on an outstanding warrant. The only thing that will make it better is if it had the explosive dye. Oh my God, he gave it to the police department. He was charged. Police charged Charles Curry with first degree bank robbery after the robbery of the American Bank and Trust. Curry cased the joint out by talking with the teller and leaving a second man armed with a handgun, then robbed the bank. Police say Curry used bank money to pay a bond for an outstanding theft charge at the Johnson County Jail, then went shopping at a Walmart and Gordon's department store. All I can say is, Curry, you're an idiot. He was taken to jail. There's a, there's an understatement. But hey, I got, I got to end up with this one. You ever had, remember all these things where people go hold my beer? Oh, yeah. Yep. This one comes from Bergetstown, Pennsylvania, population 1 ,425. Salute. The population makes a difference because we're going to get into the structural integrity of the holding cell. That Bonner Timothy was placed in. He was, he was arrested, taken to this holding cell, had his handcuffs removed. They shut the door, went off. That's when he knocked the cell door off its hinges and ran away. Now, what did he do? He stopped at a house, borrowed shoes, and then he went to a bar where he told a customer that, yeah, I just broke out of jail. Can I have a beer? The guy hold the beer, but before he could drink it, he goes, oh, hold my beer. Here's the police. The police came in and arrested him. Dang. How did he knock the door off the hinges? I'm telling you, some of these old places, it's like, it's more like having a fence, you know, you know, fences keep, you know, make good neighbors, you know, blocks keep honest people on us. But, you know, it's just, it was more the, you know, just like a Captain Jack Sparrow in Paris in the Caribbean. It's all about leverage. That's the day you almost caught Captain Jack Sparrow. Yeah, but he used leverage to pry that door off its hinges. Oh, my God. Okay. That's, there's a good, hey, hold my beer. I'm going to jail. Again. Again. Well, hey, speaking of fun stuff, I don't, I'm trying to figure out a good segue into this. This one, I get the intro because this guy I know, this guy actually has something in common with one of our other guests. Yes. Sherry Foster. And Sherry, if you're listening, tick tock, tick tock, I will get my book into him before you do, and I will be declared the winner. So this young man, and I say young man, he's got six kids. Oh, my God. He's been busy with everything. I don't know when he's had time to have six kids as busy as he is writing and editing books. But Ryan's - I wonder if there's a milk man in his neighborhood. Sorry, Ryan. Sorry, DNA tests are in your future, pal. So no, no, no, his wife's great. We don't want to make any insinuate, any insinuate, almost insinuations like that. Anyway, but let's get back to the case in chief. So, but, you know, many of you may not know who Ryan Steck is. You may have heard of big names like Jack Carr, Brad Thor, people writing thrillers. Well, not only is he the real book spy, if you go to therealbookspy .com, that is him. Ryan Steck, besides being my development editor and Sherry's development editor, guess who, you know, who asked him for recommendations and who's asked him to review their books? Jake Tapper, Bret Baier. He has got a list of celebrities and people, as long as my arm, of people that he's worked with, people that he's helped, people that are coming to him to say, hey, take a look at my book. And you got, so you're about to say something there, Murph. Hey, I've got, so I've got him pulled up on my laptop here as you're talking and he is, he's on his blog or whatever it is, YouTube. I'm not sure what you call it here. Twitch, yeah. Guess who he's talking to? Brad Thor, the author. Brad Thor, the author. How about that? He gets him on Twitch. Actually, I was supposed to be on that Twitch session, but yeah, Ryan is like, he's one of those unique people that has figured out how this thing works. Now you're going to ask, why do we have this author on? Well, for two reasons. Number one, his new book, Lethal Range is coming out. His initial book, his debut book was called Fields of Fire, a Matthew Redd thriller. So Matthew Redd is a Marine Raider. Now you hear a lot about Navy Seals, Delta Rangers, but nobody's ever had a book with a Marine Raider in it, you know? What do you call him, Marsoc? Marsoc, yeah, Marine Special Operations Command, I believe, Marsoc, yeah. And so he's got, so he had a, not only did he have a debut book, he's been helping people. Finally, all these guys are saying, write your own damn book, dude. So he did. So he got a contract for two books and a novella, which we'll talk about the novella. But his new book is, as we drop this episode, as you're listening to this today, his new book, Lethal Range comes out. And if I was just reading, just the quick thing from Lethal Range, let me just read you the intro. This is what Lethal Range is. On an island off the coast of Spain, Matthew Redd and his FBI fly team surveil a luxury villa in hopes of catching a high value fugitive. But when Redd leads an unauthorized raid on the villa, he discovers they've been set up and he is sent home to face the consequences of defying orders. Now, meanwhile, Redd's family, Emily, is on a remote stretch of Montana road driving their sick baby to the doctor when she finds her SUV surrounded by a biker gang. Intent on harassing her as they pound her fenders and infant sun screams, Emily fights to keep the FQB on the road. And then suddenly the bikers back off, leaving her safe but shaken. But when Redd returns home, Murph, he's suspended from his team and certain that he's to blame for Emily's harassment after his run -in with the local biker gang. So what does he do? He does what any guy does. He goes to war.

"["Who Will Save Your Soul?" by Julie Brown playing in the background.] I wanted to throw Jewel some love through audio fashion because we gave her a shout out. ["Who Will Save Your Soul?" continues playing in the background.] Because Jewel ain't no conservative, but she went to bat for one of the more important movies, The Sound of Freedom, which is out of the movie house. It's about child trafficking, and it's an important wake -up call. It's just an incredibly gripping film. The movies are back, Mike. Indiana Jones is great. Are you going to do Mission Impossible? Please tell me you're going to do Mission Impossible. I am. I hope this weekend. I'm mopping up to New York for a quick weekend getaway, but I'm going to try to do it. See if I go to a Times Square movie theater, maybe. Let's do Mission Impossible. Let's do this because we've got some very interesting show -by -show hot poll numbers, but rarely has there been a story leading more newscasts that so few people care about than the Actors' Strike. Now, I mean, I've never consumed more of the popular culture. I'm doing more streaming. I'm catching more shows, getting caught up on shows I've never seen. Just last night, I wrapped up a decade -era in my actual life. I have a feeling this is the last movie cast primetime -scripted TV show I will watch. I don't know. And that's the 10 years of The Blacklist with the great James Spader and an amazing cast wrapping up a decade of gripping TV. It was great. But, Mike, I've got to tell you, I've got so many shows on deck and so many movies I can watch from the beginning of time, I could not possibly care less about the Actors joining the writers on strike. I often talk about the lack of awareness that people have. In our business, frankly, in the world of punditry, actors, writers, they often are in a bubble and have zero awareness of the real world. Here's the real world. You're so right. Nobody cares that the writers and the actors feel they're underpaid. Nobody cares. There are too many platforms now, too many options. I mean, look at Axios this morning. Headline. Summer apocalypse. The media industry is facing unprecedented disruption. Striking members of SAG -AFTRA, the Actors, join Hollywood screenwriters who have been out 70 days. If a tree falls in a forest and nobody hears it, does it make a sound? Does nobody notice it? Nobody cares. I mean, we're going to keep watching what we watch. We're streaming. We're downloading. We're podcasting. I mean, it doesn't change. And, you know, one of the late night battles in TV has been interesting because Gutfeld, of course, was completely unaffected by the strike. So he keeps soaring, and all the late night comics are out because the writers are out. And they're so pathetically hypocritical. The Tony Awards. Oh, no. What are we going to do? We don't have writers for the Tonys. We woke New York Tony people aren't going to cross the picket line. Well, they had the Tony Awards. The actors had to actually ad -lib a few lines. And it was one of the best Tony Awards I've watched in years. They were fine. I mean, it was clutter -free. So, you know, it doesn't really matter. But what does matter, as you alluded to, is who we're going to elect president next year. And we have partnered with Town Hall, and the results to me are fascinating because it does give you a snapshot into what type of Republicans are saying about Trump versus DeSantis, okay? And as Hugh Hewitt shared this morning, he took some shots at me, I understand, and made fun of me. That never happens. Yeah, that's his style. I mean, he's kind of that frat boy humor. But he was poking fun. He's also probably a little stung that I don't understand his criticism of Tommy Tuberville. I just don't get it. I don't understand why a pro -life Republican doesn't lift up a pro -life senator from Alabama, you know, and I can't wait to play the clip on my show, thanks to you, of Ben Domenech replying to Hugh's question about his Marine brother, who cares if they don't have a commandant for 15 minutes. Life matters. Life's a little more important than military promotions.
Booker scores 47, Durant adds 39, Suns beat Nuggets 121-114

"Previously, on the bag game. They wanted Billy to go to an Adidas school to win Adidas brand at school. The first question that comes up is where you get the charter from the black market economy of paying players under the table exists because of the NCAA's amateurism rules. In 2019, I went with my reporting partner Mark schlei to Orlando, Florida. We were there to meet a guy named Brad Augustine. So what does your normal work week like now? Oh gosh. Mostly it's in the car. I've got a handful of accounts, so and they're spread out. So Tampa, central park. These days, he works in his father in law's flooring business. Porcelain tile, we do do a little bit of wood. The only thing that really don't deal with this carpet. Augustine worked his way up in the world of commercial flooring from forklift driver to sales rep over two years. But it was a career change for him. And that led to some awkward conversations. It was nerve wracking the first couple times when people ask me, well, how did you end up in this industry? Like, how are you here? And it's never something I hit. It's always something I was honest about. He'd tell them the story about how his old life in basketball came to an end. But you know, telling that story for the first time, you're sweating, oh my gosh, these people are gonna look at me like I'm the worst human being on the planet. And that was why I was there. To have him tell me that story. Hi. We arrived at his spacious home in a gated community in the Orlando suburbs. His wife Alexa greeted us along with their newborn daughter and her big sister. A toddler who ran across a playroom of dolls and toys toward the front door. You were silly. Yeah. In his previous life, Augustine was the program director of one of Florida's premier youth basketball programs. Teams like his aren't funded through public schools or rec centers. Their private operations and Augustine went into debt to support the team. I was $50,000 in debt. With not one penny in savings, nothing. Augustine tried getting money from every source he could think of. But he was struggling to keep his head above water. In September 2017, he got a call from Christian Dawkins, a rising sports business manager in aspiring financial adviser. Dawkins had connections at Adidas, and he had helped Augustine raise money in the past. He told me I am listen, you need to come to New York and you need to meet my investor is what he called her and it was Jill. According to Dawkins, Jill Bailey was a tech entrepreneur with money to burn who wanted to get into the sports business. Dawkins wanted her to meet Augustine to prove to her he had connections to up and coming athletes. If Augustine talked the talk in front of Bailey, Dawkins promised to pull strings at Adidas to get money for Augustine's team. So that's what my wife said, I'm leaving. I'm going to the airport. Augustine got to New York and checked into his hotel that night. I'm an early riser. I always had that I'm up around 5 o'clock, so I'm up in the hotel room, about 5, 5 30. And I get a weird phone call. And who's this? And the person on the other end of the phone says, this is so and so with the FBI, we know you're in New York city. You need to turn yourself in. Now, at this point, I'm not even thinking twice. I literally, I've got the funniest friend, so they prank called me all the time and I hung up. Unphased, Augustine made his way to the W hotel in Times Square where the meeting with Dawkins and the tech entrepreneur Jill Bailey was supposed to happen. So I get to the WS 7 30. We're supposed to meet at 8. So I'm there at 7 30, I got the laptop fired up and making phone calls and just from reading the news. 7 45, calling Christian, nothing's happening. 8 o'clock, nothing. So now it's 9 o'clock, and now I'm pissed. I flew up here for this meeting. This guy's not even calling me back. He's totally ghosting me. Augustine decided he'd waited long enough and left the hotel. And I'm standing right in the middle of Times Square just circles of people around me and the lights are all lit up and all of a sudden my phone just starts pinging. Notification after notification after notifications by swipe the first notification I see and it opens up a tweet and it says United States of America versus Jonathan Bradley Augustine. Augustine had just been criminally charged by the U.S. Department of Justice, and he found out about it through a tweet. I had to have sat there for two minutes just staring at my phone. I didn't move. I don't know if I took a breath. I was so confused. And then I think somebody bumped into me and I just snapped out of it. And I started scrolling, and I see, I see four felony counts. And so in that moment, before I did anything, I called my wife and said, hey babe, I have no idea what's going on right now. But I'm pretty sure I'm gonna get arrested today. Brad Augustine didn't know the full story yet. But he had been implicated in one of college basketballs, most dramatic pay for play scandals. The same one that ensnared Billy Preston. The Department of Justice has brought charges in a wide range in college basketball bribery and Florence, including four assistant coaches, charged in a bribery to come after a sting operation involving wiretaps and a previously convicted financial adviser cooperating with the government. This marked the end of Augustine's career. And would lead to him being called the most dangerous man in college basketball. From ESPN and 30 for 30 podcasts, I'm Paula Levine, and this is the bag game. Episode three. The sting.
Robert Sirico: Government Is Too Stupid
"The story often on the show but it's worth repeating I was running for office one time and I was up in the mountains the only station that came in with C-SPAN and they were covering a speech you were giving and you said something that I really stung in it and it made a lot of sense You said something to the effect of It's not that government's too big folks It's that it's just too stupid In other words it just doesn't have the capability and the depth of knowledge to figure out every human problem And it was just so well said So elaborate on that point Well there are two dimensions to that First it's stupid because it becomes bureaucratized So it removes people who are solving the problems from the problem So the bureaucracy is so far removed from what's going on on the ground that it enacts programs that are stupid It doesn't hit the target but the second point and it's a more complex economic point is that socialism itself the centralized planning that government does Really blocks our ability to know what real issues are It does this because it impedes entrepreneurs from finding out the real cost of things Things like this This is a point made in that beautiful parable you may have heard I pencil that Leonard Reed used to tell that you don't know what the supply and the demand is if you have bureaucrats and regulations and taxes in the middle of it So it's stupid in that sense as well
Scripture and Tradition
"Mark chapter 7 verse 8 you leave the commandment of God and hold to the tradition of men. This is a sting indictment from Jesus and Mark shepherd 7 as he's speaking to pharisees and scribes who've come to Jerusalem and those pharisees and scribes, these religious leaders were known for watch this strict adherence to traditions that they and those who had gone before them had developed and right before this verse when Jesus says you lead the commandment of God and hold to the tradition of men, Jesus says to them, Isaiah talked about you hypocrites. When he said this people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me and their worship me in vain because they teach as doctrines, the commandments of men. I just want to encourage us to think in our lives today. What traditions do we hold to? What commandments do we follow that don't actually come from God, but they're just things we do because we and those who have gone before us have decided, we should do these things. It's a helpful and humbling exercise to ask and answer that question.
Rep. Jim Banks: Our Military Is Tired of a Woke Agenda
"Do you feel like leadership on the Republican side is committed to reforms at the FBI too 'cause we can't go on like this and you again being a veteran who served the country honorably this has got to sting Yeah I served in Afghanistan where the uniform and I hear from our men and women in uniform every day who are just sick and tired of all of the woke crap being pushed on them spending more time and diversity equity and inclusion seminars than doing anything that remotely prepares them to go out and fight wars with our biggest enemies like China So let me give you an example though of the type of stuff that we're already doing I mean we're just a couple of weeks into setting up this new House Republican majority And Mike Rogers my friend from Alabama he's the chairman of the House armed services committee asked me to chair the subcommittee that would be at the tip of the spear of going after wokeness in the military and chairman Rogers and I just wrote a letter today to The Pentagon related to calissa wing She's the Department of Defense military education senior official who the Biden White House is refusing to fire even though she said these things She said quote where can I get a break from all of this white nonsense she said one time And as you said quote I'm exhausted by 99% of the white men in education 95% of the white women And then the last thing she said she had to stop giving a session and give Karen the business because of because it was another alleged anti another woke message that she was pushing So this is the kind of stuff that we hear from our troops every single day about examples like these and we're attacking it We're fighting back on us It's why a couple of weeks ago I started the first ever anti woke caucus in the Congress strategize how we can uproot wokeness because wokeness is weakness
A Very Special Call From Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones
"Hello, bob and Tom show. Oh yes, this is Jerry Jones. I just want to say I share in your pain. Even 24 hours in the hot tub that seats 12 say black Texas stadium can't take the sting away. What is owner of the nellis cowboys? Absolutely intend to turn this pain into progress. This off season I'll approach the NFL competition committee with the rule that's long overdue. I believe it's only the dad has cowboys when you're that close to the Super Bowl. And you've not been there since Danny Favre. I believe in the sake of fairness, there should be an option to buy your way. That's a good idea. That sounds fair to me. Last but not least, there is an upside as owner of the Dennis Campbell as we have good news regarding our kicker. I've been told he's on match dot com and already this off season he's found miss rat. But his owner of the Danish capital is still so sick of this moment. Hang on. Let's schedule an appointment for me at that massage parlor rubber craft recommend. No, no, no, not under my name. Let's put it under white Phillips.
Chris Hansen Has Stopped Thousands of Potential Predatory Crimes
"Hansen is an investigative reporter, one of the most well-known investigative reporters in America. He is the host of takedown and true crime nation to original television programs on the true blue factual streaming network. And Chris Hansen joins us now to talk about the horrific increase in some of these violent crimes, particularly sex crimes, Chris, good to have you on our program here on America first, how are you, sir? Good, bob. Thanks for having me. How are you? I'm great. Thanks very much. And I'm so glad to be to be talking to you and to know that you're still doing what you do and what you have done for so many years. Chris, ballpark it for me. How many predators have you encountered? Have you stopped in their tracks through so many years of taking down predators who are online trying to communicate with and coerce young children as they think are young children to meet up with them to engage in sexual activity before running into you and local law enforcement. How many people do you think you've stopped through the years? Well, I think we've stopped thousands, but physically face to face, the number is probably close to 500 in terms of guys who have surfaced in our various sting operations and showed up at a statehouse to try to have a sexual liaison with a teenage boy or a girl, probably around 500, but when you figure that according to law enforcement, every time you stop one, crime, one criminal in this venue, you probably stopped 6 to 12 potential crime. So exponentially and collaborated with law enforcement over the years, I think we've stopped thousands of potential crimes against children.
Memphis on High Alert Following Nichols Investigation
"The 5 police officers late Friday were fired from their jobs by the Memphis police department. All of them had been on the job for just a few years, so you had 5 basically rookie cops doing a working a sting operation in a very dangerous part of Memphis. Now the young man who was who was who was killed, he is an employee at FedEx, a big time skateboarder to our knowledge did not have a criminal record. He was pulled over on a traffic violation. Now, the reporting is that these officers were in an unmarked car, and they were not wearing uniforms. And Memphis right now, I will tell you, we are dealing with a massive carjacking crisis. People are getting carjacked and shot all over the place, and it's happening everywhere, including the wealthier parts of town. So there was some sort of a confrontation between these officers not in uniform, and mister Nichols, the mister Nichols ran, they caught up with him, and that's when apparently the beating happened. And that was back on January the 7th. And the city has been hemming and hawing about releasing all of the footage. And the city is on edge. I can tell you that right now, they are bracing for what could be very, very, very bad night for the city of Memphis. People are on edge. They're just on edge. They don't know what's going to happen. I mean, God forbid antifa decides to get on the interstate and come over here. By and large, the people of Memphis are peaceful, it's a violent town, but the people are peaceful. So I can't imagine that we're going to have the city burned to the ground like they did in Minneapolis, but nobody knows. But I can tell you that everybody's ready. For whatever happened. So all you people in Memphis, UB safe tonight. And if you don't have to be anywhere, I would recommend just staying home tonight. And just play it safe.
Gov. Asa Hutchinson Teases Presidential Hopes
"Listen, governor asa Hutchinson talked about how he's going to be in the mix, a very serious and he's very seriously thinking about whether or not he wants to run for president. The guy doesn't stand a chance. He won't even come close. The only two people, frankly, at least right now, according to Napoleon, worth looking to. Is president Trump former president Trump and Ron DeSantis. Ron DeSantis doesn't even though run desantis does well in polling. His numbers are still relatively far off when it comes to Donald Trump, although, in some polls, it shows that he does beat him or is gaining sting. But here's the problem that most Republicans are going to run into. The base. The base. Donald Trump has a base where people will show up and vote for him. And the primary, but I think we have a problem as a whole as a Republican Party and that if we don't get election integrity down, if we don't get that issue wrapped up, I'm not sure that we can win in 2024. Period. I don't care if it's Trump. I don't care if it's desantis. This is something that Republicans must look into.
"sting" Discussed on NBA Front Office w/ Keith Smith & Trevor Lane
"And maybe that's where we're going here in New York as well. Very well be 25 rebounds for Andre Drummond with Joel embiid now out. Yeah. That's a master performance even though they did drop that one. Let's finish up by talking a little Lakers and hornets exciting game. Unfortunately, from my perspective, it became very exciting. The Lakers again blowing a big lead in the fourth quarter. One of the craziest moments I think we'll see this year in a game 5 consecutive free throws for lamella ball. That was you had two free throws for a foul. And then you had a delay of game and two technicals led to 5 free throws in a row for lamella ball to cut the Lakers lead to four late in the game and then the hornets came back and took it to OT. Yeah, absolutely. It was this was the Anthony Davis without LeBron. He was absolutely dominant on both ends of the floor. This was maybe one of the best defensive games I've seen him play since the Bible box. I just thought he just yeah, I just controlled everything too. He was switching out the guys on the perimeter doing just really wrecked everything. Charlotte wanted to do for a very long period of time. And this one, Russ did not shoot it well, but he was still put his stamp on the game with 14 assists. I thought he did a good job of pushing pace at times in this one, kind of catching the hornets almost at their own game. And then mellow again, you know, we talked about if it wasn't for Tyler hero, he'd probably be the 6th man of the year. He's just been that good off to bench 9 to 13. Now I have to say this. Anthony Davis's comments on Melo after the game, what are you talking about? Everybody gave up on this guy. No one wanted to give him a chance and look at what he's doing with us. One, Portland gave him a chance, and he did this kind of stuff in Portland. They would have happily have kept him, and it but he wanted to join the Lakers and that's his choice. And that's the right thing to say. But you could have given him this chance two years ago and you didn't. So let's not make it out like the Lakers were the savior of Carmelo Anthony here. Come on. Portland did the work. It's getting a little we're creating a narrative that doesn't exist. I mean, I get it. I didn't see the postgame comments yet because I frankly, I got my audio done and I went to bed right after that thing ended..

"You know, if they were healthy and things were clicking, then I'd feel a lot better about the games coming up. But you know, the reality is is that they're going to need to scrap and fight as hard as they can. You know, they struggle tonight against not a bad but not a great Charlotte horns team, but you know, the next couple games, you know, the bulls, the heat, which are next on display, the blogs, the Celtics, et cetera. This is going to be a real test for the Lakers this early in the season. I don't really know what the record is, but I'm just hoping that they can manage to pull off some wins and stay afloat. Stay around 500 or slightly above it. I think that's the most optimal situation here. But it'll be good, I think in the long term, though, just as far as growing as a team and facing even more adversity up to this point, because they haven't really been tested by a good team? Outside of the warriors and the obviously. But they haven't been in a close game against a against a good team. Is that what you mean? Yeah, kind of like that. And also like, you know, not at the beginning of the season when they're still figuring things out. You know, now we have a decent sample of what this team is and we're kind of starting to see the outline of what this team could be. Because we've seen them good in stretches now. You know, you didn't have that early in the season. But now it's like, oh, look, the Lakers can actually play well on both Carmelo's flames. They have yeah, and they have lineups that make sense. Sometimes. So, you know, sometimes I thought tonight, you know, I didn't have too many complaints about the lineup, honestly. I'm glad we didn't have to you didn't know pairing and things like that. Sure. That's easy not to see it when one of them gets to us. But still even up to that point. Right. So right. But, you know, that being said, you know, I'm feeling, you know, better than I talked it out and that the Lakers ultimately do get the win. That's what matters at the end here. It's still going to be a rough process. It's going to be a roller coaster. It's not going to surprise me if one day goes poorly and everyone's up in arms again. But you know, that's just the early part of the season. We're going to just have to bear with it. But I don't know if you guys have talked about this on the Saturday show with Jeff, but you know, I wanted to just say before we got off here, is that thanks for everyone that showed up. It was cool to meet a few of you at our watch parties. You know, the Portland game was not great, but it was fun to talk to some of you Lakers basketball connect. So that was cool. So, you know, for everyone that showed up at both locations, it was fun..

"Play the rest of it out. So it doesn't matter, but he's never going to get benched. That's one. And then two, I think there should be some unwritten rule in NBA transactions or rumors or fan rumblings that if you're going to say trade this player or contractually obligated to finish that and say for what? And make it a legal trade. And it's not and Ben Simmons is not the answer. Yeah, and it's not the answer. So give me a trade that actually looks like it works, or that is legal under NBA rules, and it fits within the salary cap and all that good stuff. And then we can have a conversation about it. But you can't just say trade Russell Westbrook for peanuts. That's not going to happen. Yes, that's absolutely true. But let's talk a little bit about Dwight Howard. Have a comment coming in here. Sure. Dwight Howard seems much more mobile than Deandre. Yes, tonight there were a few moments where Dwight Dwight was called in to actually defend on the perimeter. Like he got called to action in a switch, and he wasn't burned. I mean, he actually held his own out there. Now again, that's not Damian Lillard that's on the perimeter when you're playing against the hornets..

"Just need like a little like you follow them around with a squirt bottle, like you do for a puppy, right? Every turnover, you just scored them? No. I love super hard 'cause like I had much no. Yeah, bad Westbrook. He's got dead. He's got his look. Westbrook has his spots. There's no question. And I think some of them, you're not going to get rid of at this point. I think some of them can be cut down upon a lot of them can be cut down upon. But he is you're going to have to take some of the good with the bad. And I know that might be frustrating to hear when he's taking the open 15 foot jumper and it's hits the front of the rim and an instantly ignites a fast break going the other way. That kind of stuff can be frustrating. But it's kind of something I think we're going to have to have to live with. That's season goes on. Hopefully they can kind of mold him a little bit in terms of the decision making, but I mean, some there's going to be some moments where we're not going to be happy. I'm still cackling about stop doing stop doing just stop doing that. I don't know. Can we answer that question seriously though? I think the only people that can come from are AD and LeBron. I don't think anyone in the coaching staff is going to be able to hold us accountable like that. And have them actually stop doing it. Yeah, maybe rondo even. It's going to have to come from one of his peers and someone that he respects or even holds in higher regard than himself does. So I think it's going to have to be one of the two stars. Yeah. I'd agree with that. I've got Maddie James from YouTube said, may just be me, but I don't want to see 80s shooting at three of the closing seconds when he had time to make a move to the basket, agreed. Yep, 100% agree. I'd rather see him making that move to the basket as well. Who wanted to trade for Russ, LeBron, pelinka, or both. Like, the organization made the decision I'm not behind closed doors to where I would know who it was that was really pushing for us. Maybe they all were. But as a franchise, the organization, they made the decision. I bet it probably came I mean when you talk about superstar trades like that, LeBron and AD are just going to say trade for anyone. They're going to have their say or their pickup guy..

"Thoughts. So why go away from from Bello? I especially like, I guess we can springboard from that into that final play at the end of the fourth quarter. Sure. It does feel like, you know, mellow should be getting some more. Touches, particularly when you score in the ball, had the big three and overtime as well. Why, why do the Lakers seem to go away from what's getting them into a good spot as the fourth quarter starts to drag on there? I think my immediate thought to that question is that most of mellows looks come off catch and shoot opportunities, not so much dribbling or not in isolation situations that the Lakers are really fond of using with LeBron, AD and even Russ to assert an extent. So I don't even necessarily think it's going away for mellow. I think the better way to phrase it is that they don't design a play or look to get him an open jumper. Because they're not going to say, because Carmelo is not the mellow of old where you throw it to him in the mid post, like where AD likes to be and say, go get us a bucket. Really, his job is to space the floor and become a shooting threat and pull defenders away from the paint. So you have those driving lanes or those passing lanes for the guards and Anthony Davis. So I think that's really more of what's going on here. But I think I do agree that if mellows this hot from the field, you have to get something where he gets a touch at least on the possession and he gets to act as a shooting threat because at that point you have a lot of options there because defenses are going to scramble and try to close out to him. Especially when he's shooting what was it 9 of 13 from the field 7 to ten from the three? It's one of those things where I think he does deserve a touch. I don't necessarily know he needs to be the fulcrum or the focal point of the offense, possession, but I do think that he deserves a touch in those situations. Well, let me tell you. Like if it's if we're talking about the play in the fourth quarter, I would rather it be a mellow contested three than an Anthony Davis contestant three. And I don't know if it's not even close. Like if that's the play you're gonna run, that ball needs to be getting into the hands of Carmelo Anthony. If you decide if you're Frank Vogel and you decide, hey, you know what we really need to finish this game is a long jumper..

"From three. And then our guy where would they be with Adam? Carmelo Anthony, 29 points, 9 for 13 shooting 7 for ten for three. Three boards. Only other Laker to get double figures. Deandre Jordan with ten and the Malik monk as well with ten Matt when you look at the box score for this game and you look at these stats, it's a wonder that the Lakers pulled this off. I mean, it's a, the brilliance of Anthony Davis, he was amazing tonight. I thought he was incredible, except for the final play at the end of the end of regulation. That was not great. I don't know who drew that up. We'll talk about that one. And I thought Wayne Ellington even 8 points two for three from three. He stepped in and played some decent minutes 24 minutes for him tonight. And I thought defensively, he wasn't a liability, which, I mean, is a good sign for him. Yeah, you know, here's a fun box court. I don't really pay too much attention to plus minus and things. But if you look at the box score for tonight's game, all the Lakers starters are actually negative tonight and all the bench players are positive. If you told me before the game that that was going to happen I'd probably tell you that the bench outperformed in the blowout loss or something, but it's a weird quirk to see that. But on the other side of the box court here, if you look at the hornets, their starters are all in the plus side here. So you would think that they lost this game given how that looks just on paper. But the important thing is, what you said they won, Anthony Davis, you know, I don't know if you want to start doing the 360 award. By the way, can we just submit this or to the 73 60 award? Because I thought that at one point I thought we were going to have to. Like, Anthony Davis, I think is going to get it. At least from me. All right, let's just jump into it. Anthony Davis is getting the award for me. At one point, I was gonna throw the curveball and just give it to mellow, but Anthony Davis end of the day again 32, 12 four, 5 blocks. I got to go with AD as the 360 award for this game. He's for sure the answer here. And that's why I wanted to expand the criteria to include mellow because at this point, I mean, sorry, I don't want to keep jumping segments here, but we're going to talk about next man up. I think there's only one real answer here also. Absolutely. So I think at this point, maybe we just got to get Carmelo is due and include in the 360 award here, because man, it's getting really repetitive for us to pick him every night, but he deserves it. Yeah, absolutely. Who else? I mean, 29 points off eventually, who else are you gonna give it to? There's not. Yeah. I mean, you're not gonna give it like Deandre Jordan with surprisingly springy tonight for some place..

"For everything. Lakers? Lakers get the win in overtime against the hornets, but my goodness. I have a feeling not many Lakers fans are coming out of that game feeling good about where the teams at right now that we're so positive moments for sure. But they certainly made a mess at the end, but do wind up surviving and over time. That's the important part, I guess, right? First and foremost, they got the win. And this team badly needed the victory. So they get that. But we've got a lot else, so we're going to dive into tonight. Matt, the optimist Peralta joining me. How are you doing Matt? I'm holding on by a thread Trevor. I'm glad I have a lot of showtime lager on me because that game was rough. That was. That was. And that's coming from the optimist, too, everybody. That tells you what this game put us through at one point. Matt, I was thinking, here it is. This is it. This is the game where the Lakers just put a team away and we get a nice cruise to a victory and everybody will be happy afterwards and we'll get to talk about how they finally showed effort and they had the energy and they played like they wanted to win and everything worked out. And then no. And then we didn't get that at all and they wind up going to overtime and kind of made a mess of things. To finish there, so we're going to talk about all that we're going to break down exactly what happened why it happened. Obviously getting the wins the important part. If you're coming in from YouTube from Facebook from Twitter, welcome that we're going to take your questions and comments. I am curious to see how everybody else is feeling out there right now in this moment. We were a little bit stressed. I think we could say that. So if you're coming in, shoot us your questions, your comments, and everybody listening to the podcast version of this tomorrow will hopefully by tomorrow, we are all kind of calm down a little bit. But hopefully by tomorrow, you can review and subscribe over on Apple podcasts on Spotify wherever you listen to podcasts. All right, Matt..

Just real briefly There according to a book on head by jay johnson eat. It had actually did not really designed the costumes for this movie. She rather she was at universal at the time but she did a lot of speaking to the press and sort of telling stories about the film in the costumes without actually creating them. According to this book. The men's costumes were created by vincent de and peter sal duty who I think was the head of the cost. Department at universal and sell duty was one of his lieutenants. And like they all the costumes and eileen brennan costumes were selected from What was in stock at western costume by andrea. Weaver and so there was a little bit of consternation. When edith had won the oscar and didn't thank any of other people in her acceptance speech and she actually had to take out a full page ad in the trades. And thank people there but There was a little bit of bad blood so again. This is according to this one book. So it's possible that i'm wrong about some of this but I the that's you know the fascinating. The ins and outs of the industry at the time one of you talk a little bit about in your book and it was something. I enjoyed very much That maybe you can share with the listeners which was The montage sequences and allowing marvin hamlet of really shine with the score Because those sequences are so great. Yeah They are and one thing that i thought was so interesting and i didn't notice this until i read an interviewer marvin. Hamlet mentioned it but almost all the musical cues in. The film are not underscoring dialogue. They're almost all in the transitions between scene. So you're when you're hearing the music you're just hearing the music and that really did a lot not just to help you know. Create this tone of the film but But also to make the music itself so popular and catch on with audiences. I mean this. This movie was one of the reasons. That scott joplin a posthumous pulitzer prize. Two or three years. Later because his music became so popular again because of the stink he'd kind of been forgotten in recent decades. I mean it's amazing to think that the the music as soon as you start to hear hear it in the film you say i mean that's like icon acc- music so yeah the idea that know the.

Yeah, I mean for me it's a it's a fairly easy Choice. I'm going with Dennis Schroder. I mean 22 points four rebounds seven assists nine of nineteen shooting is an amazing but it's still pretty good. He I mean we we're going to talk about the the stories that came out today, but Lakers pay this man off like I at this point, I'm at the point where I don't even care if it's an overpay just give him money and figure it out later trade him later. If you need to just give young man the money he wants I'm I don't want to play games take my money meme. Yeah twenty two points. I gotta go shooter as well twenty-two points and Kyle kuzma. The chat is getting him some love to Kyle kuzma Jersey definitely a worthy worthy recipient there as well but for for 12 shooting, so I'm going to lean Dennis Schroder 9 4 19 shooting seven assists, but you know what my favorite part of Denis Shooters stat line tonight dead. It's two turnovers. We've been waiting for a game like this from Dennis Schroder because he has been more of a high turnover player four or five turnovers a night hitting that most most of the time I've been calling him and took the Mystic pass or he's a guy who throws passes where he's kind of hoping somebody will pop open but he doesn't know for sure that they're going to and it leads to turnovers and in particular the deadliest of turnovers long ball turnovers, which gets the other team going the other direction and fast-break. So I was happy to see him cut down on those turnovers. So I also go dentist router and let's dive into this story. So Adrian wojnarowski ESPN is on his podcast wage and he says you sheds a little light on the shooter mystery cuz it's been over a month. Now. We're we've been waiting for this extension to show up for Dennis Schroder hasn't been happening in pretty saying what's going on with large says shooter is expecting well over twenty million per season when he hits the market. So if he hits the market and free agency, he's looking for a job. Big number now the Lakers can extend him now and avoid that possibility that he hits the market and some team out there. There's a lot of teams that have cap space offers him a lot of money by trying to do an exchange of right now, but I don't know I mean when you start getting up there and when won't says well over like is Dennis Schroder looking for 25 million a year at what point do you say that's that's that's a little too much even knowing that because they're over the cap. If the Lakers lose Dennis Schroder, they can't replace them. It's not like they suddenly have that money to go spend. So how do you handle this wrong? I mean, I guess your thoughts the side of giving whatever he wants. Well, so right now the Lakers the max they can offer them is like four years eighty five and half million or something like that..

Some guys are I mean, look the Hornets have to lean on lamelo Ball and I still walk 10 millibars been is a very good player. We're going to talk about him in just a minute. I still think that if THC was a rookie this year and he was on a bad team which again both both would be possible. How do you stayed in school? One more year, he would be about the same age as the guys who are rookies right now and he very well may have ended up a first-round pick on a bad team. I think he would be I don't think he would win it off. I think he would be in the Rookie of the Year conversation because he'd be getting those more opportunities, but I think long-term what we're seeing right now is the best thing for his development. Yeah, and I think it's perfect what you said because I mean right now the Rookie of the Year race is like lamelo ball and then right below him is Anthony Edwards and then there's like this Grand Canyon of nothingness because of the rookie class this year. You know James Wiseman has struggled. It just hasn't been a great rookie class so far with the exception of those to see I feel like tht he could have sung with a bigger role on a worst team. So I've got a few questions in here people are asking about the buyout market and things like that and we're going to get into that stuff later in the show Once we're done talking about this game, but something interesting Andre Drummond, I gotta say guys. So Anthony who does the graphics for us, he makes all of our our thumbnails and things like that for YouTube. He did a jersey swap with Andre Drummond Andre Drummond looks real good in purple and gold. Let me tell you guys that so if if the Bayou does happen, we're going to have a good looking Andre Drummond many of the middle for the Lakers. I think that he would slide right in, New Jersey. Starting center position and we're going to talk a little bit too about the Dennis Schroder news that came out a few hours before tipoff. We'll talk a little bit about that and kind of his extension all that kind of stuff. So stick around that is coming.

I don't know it. Yeah i is the fact that the north umbrian small pipe from the first song makes a return. The song captured somber gloomy tune. And there's so much going on in the song pop rock jazz more than anything. There's this pain in which i feel. He's like trying to say goodbye and he does so with this color palette a more than any song in his catalog. He uses color to draw a picture.

Pray to their gods. But they're gods didn't listen to them either and all that was left at the end of it were some stones right and at the end of this very depressing song about how life means very little in the grand scheme of things. Bill expresses his wish to bury his dad at sea because he couldn't live his life. They're like wanted to then. Maybe he could have his attorney there instead. And that's such a gr-. I mean it's it's terribly depressing song. But but but he puts he puts hope into it. Injects it at the very end there can be. There can be something good coming out of this. Yeah there's so much catholic stuff on here which. I didn't have to research the i would imagine. It's a that's a that's the that's the type of stuff that a lot of times get gets passed me. I'm that's an interesting line dumdum. And then i'm like later on. You're like that's from the bible like up. Of course totally knew that the line in the song is it's better to be poor than be a fat man in the eye of the needle and he kind of mashed it up a little bit. And i think i've heard this mad about you all. I'm not mad about this. Next song is called mad about you know sadly it is not the theme song to mad about you know remember. Abc it's almost every seinfeld e it is but a lot of nineties sitcoms or like that. That's true this is a this is a very wonderful song and As absolutely nothing to do with the theme of the record slotted in here outlier. I i would say that. It does kind of has something to do with him. 'cause like you said there's this overarching anti-catholic sorta theme there's a biblical story. Yes so yes so. This is inspired by king. David's story from the bible and Sting said about this It's inspired by the story of king david and sheba These stories of murder and obsessive jealous love appeal to me for some reason. Yes those lines. There are no victories in all our histories without love. Have the quintessential sting idea. That romantic love outweighs global issues. I really believe that love is continuity of the species. The most important thing. That's why love songs are immortal. A political song will be dated within a year. Took me a long time to learn. And i get that. Get okay. fine what. We'll get to that in a second but this is definitely the outlier. Yes and it's really far afield from the rest of the record in my opinion. But we're gonna talk about anyway so The first thing you start take notices at. The rest of the band is starting to show up now. I two songs. Obviously musicianship is great. But there's no real standout moments Until now many catch a on drums. Dominic miller like everyone you said. I'll giants the industry. But they really start to play on this track. And there's this lovely oboe solo on the song by paula pepper l. Just beautiful lyrically. You're right this is somewhat of a loose retelling of the david and bethsheba story again. Going back to the bible told from david's point of view as opposed to best she was point of view. So i can cover this no problem. Second book of samuel. If you're not familiar. David was king david at the time and he was taking an evening stroll And he saw bethsheba taking a bath and he wanted her ended up getting her pregnant. In an effort to conceal his sin he recalled bethsheba 's husband araya from the battlefield in the hopes that he would have he would have sex with her and he could claim that it was awry. As kid. Not his your. Ira refused because while they were constructed into the military. They weren't supposed to have sex with anybody so he didn't. After several refusals david just ended up sending him to the front lines and made sure he got put in place. That would have your riot killed which is exactly what happened. So these biblical guys are first rate. Let me point out there just really swell guys sound legat. God was apparently now pissed david so after bethsheba gave birth. The baby died within a few days and david accepted that as punishment for the sin however that wasn't the end and this is really work. It's fucked up. David's punishment came to pass years later when one of david's much loved sons. Absalom led an insurrection that plunged the kingdom into civil war moreover to manifest his claim to be the new king have salaam had sexual intercourse in public. With ten of his father's concubines. Which could be considered a direct tenfold divine retribution for david's. Taking the women woman of another man in secret so great. This is the bible folks better than any tawdry novel. You can find at the grocery store. Wonderful wholesome stories on the nail was hen concubines in public. The kings concubines. The kings concubines. Too great It's good it's a good story. It's something you read your kids right before bed. Really say your prayers. And here's the story of david and bathsheba who was. She named best she because she was taking a bath sheba. She saying him longer short. It's the story It's a song about obsession in love but not necessarily in. That order was bethsheba year. Heap knew how to make your ride. Is heap comments coming up. Didn't you sir. I still good song though but maybe it was better suited versus compilation album. Agreed if you like it was just slotted in here for no real reason like i mean you know like i said you could make the argument. It's a anti-religious song and then in the middle there is this biblical story that sort of a a pointing. Look how ridiculous. The bible is where it makes at santa me one of those sound bible that you just open up and goes wont wont fantastic. I make it went. You should i right now jeremiah. Blues yes part. One part one. As far as i could tell in all stings catalog. They was never a part to So not sure what that meant but here it is. Here's the funk that everyone has been waiting for since last listen to nothing like the sun. And i can't really figure out if this song fits in lyrically with the rest of the record or not but to me. I like to believe it is more of an internal monologue of billy's as he's wandering around the town after his father passed away all right ed by that so. It's the whole feeling of helplessness. After you lose someone that you're close that everyone looks as if their lives. Continue to go on unaffected. Which of course they do. But you are saddled with grief this aching pain that you can't shake it. It makes you pissed off at people for no apparent reason. Quite honestly things don't really make sense anymore The line in the song pope claimed he had been wrong in the past. This was a big surprise catholics. Believe in the rule of papal infallibility that if the pope says it it must be true and it must be right so him saying a pope said he was wrong in the past. This is some weird topsy turvy world. Which kind of makes me think that billy was. He was kind of out of it right now for this song. I know that this was a kenny. Kirkland on keys and it's such great work and you mentioned kenny before. And who would play with. But he's one of those really tragic jazz figures he's a bebop. Artists played with wint. Marcellus all the people that you named nineteen ninety eight. He was recording with. The marcellus is and their producer. Remarked marcella morris marcella producer markelle kenny. That he wasn't in good shape and he suggested that he go to the doctor. And kenny said after the session by go now they will make me check into the hospital. He went and was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and told he needed surgery. He kind of wrote it office. Twenty years of abusing his body on the road without adequate vacations and a lousy diet and he gave himself a fifty fifty chance of surviving surgery. For that reason he just accepted. his fate. Went on the road with branford marsalis and a couple of weeks later. He was dead in his apartment of heart failures. And it's just tragic spent super sad. It's terrible a hate stories like bad about musicians especially just where it's like you know he might have been able to get some help and they're just like yeah abusing myself of his time. Why stop now. Nothing's going to happen. Or maybe it will. Whatever so one thing i've always wondered about is the jeremiah in the title of the song My feeling if you follow the catholic premise behind the record is that he's referring to the prophet jeremiah. He wrote the book of jeremiah. As well as the book of kings and the book of lamentations is often referred to as the weeping prophet as a lot of the artwork that is representative of him has shown that way primary tenets of his prophecies of involve redemption and repentance. And there's a line in the song leads me down that path. Everybody wants to look the other way when something wicked this way comes. Sometimes they tie a thief to the tree. sometimes i stare. Sometimes it's me now. I don't know if there's any intention -ality behind the naming of the song or if the two things are completely unrelated but my money is on this being about jeremiah. The prophet There's a ton of catholic imagery on this record. I have no reason to believe that this would be any different but sting if you are listening email me at info at audio dot com and tell me that it's just a name and i will back off. Could you imagine if we again meal this is doing. Please call me gordon. Mighty sound like ringo. Don't know that's weird or paul just happens at paul. It was Why should i cry for you. Why should you so this song. The first time. I heard this. I immediately thought you remember in the nineties. When they sold like in walmart or target on the end of some i'll they would have that display with a bunch of like world music on it. Yeah and it had two big lake three by three inch buttons. You could push the button and it would play a little sample from that album. Find that those crappy things in like really bad like Oh yeah. I'm sure somewhere. This song for whatever. Reason reminds me of that. Just a picture like you would push one abboud and then those like whale saw oo just whatever reason the first time i heard this song. Listen to this album. I was like yeah. This would be on one of those albums. This song gets me every time. I but it's Is such an open statement of grief in the inability to come to terms with it painted and dotted with these amazing visuals. That he uses to the song is more or less the closer the first side of the record And from here on out. It's all about the grief he's been dealing with. But also he starts to utilize colors to tell his story very adamantly and all the nautical themes get ramped up to eleven so first of all. The song has a very peter. Gabriel vibe to it which would lend itself to that world. Music agreed perhaps influenced by the keyboard loop and processed drums that are used very much the influence of producer few pageant who worked with gabriel in genesis in the later years and it is this repeated. Vocal part the who. Here's some of that right..
