Notable Developments on the College Basketball Coaching Carousel Scuttlebutt

"A lot of movement on the coaching carousel. Over the past couple of days the big. One of course was indiana firing archie miller. After four seasons. We talked about that on a previous podcast. So go find it. We're not going to spend any time on that here but let me walk you through the other notable developments richard patino out at minnesota and as up tuesday morning. He's the new coach at new mexico. State has quote parted ways with steve. Prohm depaul finally took. Dave laid off the hot seat list. Boston college hired earl. Grant penn state hired mike castrucci berry dead leg spin a pretty good right now. It's spinning man. Yeah listen we give the. We are gearing up for this tournament. We got we got more than forty eight hours till. We're gonna tip the first game here so as expected. We've had some movement on the carousel. So we'll let's get into a little bit of this This scuttle but here kind of take it job by job. Best job openings indiana. Let's kind of go in order. I guess second best job. That's open. I would say iowa state is a better job than minnesota steve. Prohm gets fired late monday night. His jamie pollard was on the selection committee so he traveled back as he should have to meet with promo person and do what he what needed to be done You and i both seven the podcast in january. We expected steve prone to return next season. But we also didn't expect iowa state to never win a game like he just got to an irreversible point. so he's done. He put out a classy statement on tuesday morning. And i don't know whether or not steve prohm will land somewhere else head. Coaching position this coaching cycle but he will be a head coach again. He did take iowa state to three inch tournaments he was really good prior to that at murray state and certainly qualified for. It's just a matter of Is there anything out there. That he would be offered or anything out there that he would want as for the job. The candidates we're early. But i'm told that this is certainly a coach that you know quite well as well i'm told jamie pollard definitely will be considering. Unlv head coach. Tj burger near the top of his list. I can't say that he is the favorite. I just think that it's objectively true. That tj also burger will be under consideration for the iowa state job along the likes of. You're going to hear puerto moser connected to multiple jobs on this podcast because let's face it especially if he wins at least one tournament game. He's just a hot name. And he's going to be attached to iowa st paul minnesota. I i don't know if you'd be a favorite for state. But i think his name makes sense. I think utah. State's craig smith might make sense and then a high. I do have a wildcard one. Uab's andy kennedy has gone to the sec. Good job at ole miss. He's just one year and at uab but he had he had a really good year. In fact i think he won more games in his first season. This past season than just about anyone. Maybe all of all of the first year coach coaches. So i think that's a fact no first year coach at a new program. One more games this season than ak i. It's just i'm lobbying out. There is a name that should be considered. And then i did see fran for shila tweet this and i do. I do think there's something to it. Like a baylor is a one seed could be in the final four. Hey first time since bill henderson all that good stuff tang is a is a high level power conference assistant that is deserving of an opportunity would come at a power conference level. I don't know. But i think it's only a matter of time before jerome tank. Its job as well. So i'm just tossing him in knows the league as potentially someone that They should consider or at least at the very least interview sets an initial pool of

"This person rates in from denver. He says i'm fifty nine. She sixty one been married for twenty. Six years were empty nesters. Living in cova times frequency is about two to three times a month. But it's gotten very pretty predictable. Can you help me with sexual initiation. I want to keep things fresh mo. We can try brandon. How do you initiate sex. Oh jeez sometimes. I'm very lazy. And i do the what is it. What do you call it the poco. I know you're there. And the other times i find that i do have to kind of push myself. I know that i enjoy sex. Knew that that. I know that you enjoy sex so i know that if i push myself to initiate that it's going to likely be a win win for all part but how do you initiate so. Yes the puck from behind like especially in the shower lately. Come into mcdonald's tang my towel on that. Just hold my towel. How old do i initiate. You feel like you're putting me on the spot. I mean the pope from behind his goto. What else do i do. You tell me so. I i tend to initiate sex by Touching caressing kinda stroking your body. I think that that's what works. And it's funny. Because as i'm saying what i do. I know that that's what works for me. Like i know that that sensuous touch is what relaxes me and kind of gets me into the head space physically and mentally into sex. Why do that when we're trying. I'm trying to initiate sex with you. Yeah you're very you're definitely physical. I think most people sink physically when they think about sexual initiation you. I guess i want to begin by talking about planting sex seeds. So this is from our latest book the book that i wrote with marla the ultimate guide to seduction and four play. And i make sure. I plug it so that you know that this is marlins work too because succeeds are actually her creation in. She describes them as seductive clues about what is to come in a future sexual experience so they can be planted in the morning. If you wanna get busy at night or you can plant them throughout the week before you meet and you know she says to really consider what type of sex. Your lover likes. So do they like it romantic. Do they like to be filmed. Are they publicly. Experimental and really think about an aerobic activity that you can plan on your own and plant a seed to set the tone so if your partner likes to be spanked. Maybe you're leaving a spanking instrument in their car like a paddle spoon from the kitchen. Or maybe you leave a photo of it in their purse or their briefcase or maybe you leave them a note in their lunch bag and text them a photo of it in your hands. You're the ideas. You're watering the succeed. Kind of leaving additional clues. And i know people aren't really going to work right now but still you have different areas of your home you can use and it. It's interesting 'cause marla reminds us that this whole process of planting succeeds can kind of offer a distraction to reduce stress overall. And help you to kind of weave eroticism throat your day to day interaction so i think the most important thing that i would want to emphasize that initiating sex can't really happen on the spot right. It is really about the way you interact at breakfast for the evening or on monday for

I would hold the door. He would push the clothes back. Anyone say okay one two three and then he would put his hand. I would slam the door shut. The close would fall back. positive closed. Room looks clean nice. But it wasn't that. I didn't have clothes. I had a lot of close enough close.

We have a special show for us because we have a special guest show We've listened to some of the music in the past. I know i have mentioned the album's in the past.

We have michael all the way from germany. Joining us on the show. Michael thank you for joining us for big show So yeah i love. How and for me. It's a fairly recent thing of seeing not just a lo fi hip hop or hip hop instrumentals becoming so popular on the internet and worldwide. But seeing a lot of a video game arrangements insi- within hip hop within the lo fi. Can you tell me a little bit about how you got interested in hip hop and then how that intersected with with zelda yeah. I got interested with hip Pretty early when there was five or six. I rap songs and thought i always loved the beats and stuff but when it was i think whether it was fourteen was when i started making own beads. I've always liked sorry. The i've always liked zelda games and games in general and soundtracks and think about two thousand and eight. When i started making music i made my first remixes but i didn't release them and I think two thousand seventeen when notify was a bit bigger. That was when i did it again. 'cause these were finally hippies got really fit to yoga music yes i feel i feel that and i'm not sure if this is the same for a lot of people that i feel like my musical tastes have suddenly become mainstreamed more popular so the instrumental music that i really enjoy suddenly. There's there's an audience audience for it. And say i can also say that people like me who weren't generally into that style of music when you cross sect it west v. Gm which. I am a fan of It has a way of getting you in the door to appreciate what you were missing out on before the now definitely before we get into some original game music some music that we really enjoy. I'm curious about some of your musical influences. You said you you listen to a lot of got interested in rap music at a younger age while we're some of the the early artists and songs that really got you interested. Well i think the biggest inspiration was abducted raped western east coast hip hop in the nineties. Yes and then. The eminem fifty cents and a lot of german rep. Oh yeah. I'm not familiar with a lot of german rap. Artists is are there any names that maybe we could take note of and explore Seo the is He also reps on these Boom bap beats yes. Yeah and kinetic also from my hometown. They think mostly inspired by now. We have a friend of our show who lives in the uk in britain and he also has a podcast of music. And do you know of the wu tang clan playstation game. So there's a fighting game but all of the characters are members of the wu tang clan and they did it and they wrote a soundtrack to the game. You might be interested. It's it's very instrumental. But there's a few there's a few vocal tracks cetera. Okay sounds cool. Hundred very quick the only game villain. No of his Def jam york. That's with a lot of weapons and stuff up when the kids out there. It's always so it kind of makes sense that they would fight each other. But at the same time i always imagined. The wu tang clan working together. You know is the main story mode is exactly that like pointing games. Do it where they'll start out with a they're just fighting because they're trying to figure out what's going on here eventually. Learn that the band is making them. Fight was something with thirty six yards. They had to fight their way through so elena.

Have you have you never heard of some like an aggravated robbery or something anger provided assault. Aggravated assaults but. Identity theft what did he rip off your name off your personality? Just I thought it could be just someone very, very annoying pretending to be your exasperatingly kept on pretending to be so I had to look it up. Until this is my little bit of Education for everyone listening. Maybe everyone knows this when a crime is aggravated, it just means it's a bit worse so more serious than it would otherwise be. So that's why if you ever hear, Americans talk about aggravated something. So this is serious identity theft than criteria. Exactly matching Cole's of the amount of money involved because they did obviously defraud quite a lot of money out of his limousine company because they didn't pay them real money just rolled in pretending to work for Jay's said Oh. So this is what it's all about just walked in said Hey we're the Wu Tang clan yeah Ya Sixty K.. Problems through in the shampoos.

Stumbling block: the battle over WeChat

"A new battle is shaping up in the legal wrangles around. Social Media APPS operating in. America. The trump administration's attempt to block we chat and Tiktok from American APP. Stores was overturned by a federal judge on Sunday. Yesterday, America's Commerce Department said it would appeal. The wildly popular video sharing Tiktok has been the subject of jockeying from American firms for ownership after President Donald Trump said he would ban it unless CEOS was agreed. It can't be controlled for security reasons by China too big too. Invasive and it can't be and here's the deal I don't mind if whether it's Microsoft or somebody else a big company secure company, very, very American company by it. That seemed to be solved on Saturday when he approved a deal involving Oracle and Walmart. But that still left, we chat a platform with a huge following in China and among the Chinese diaspora if you as battling TV use of which had that would ask. For examples, I can use the. In. The US Li Tang is Chinese but lives in New York Bats. The hub was blocking China's. Savings so The government binding dvd from using the reach hats not means my connection with China is totally being cut off. The administration's wish to block it entirely now lies with the courts, but that battle will be very different from the one over Tiktok. This was going to cripple these we just in America for about three and a half million Chinese Americans who the majority of its users and the California judge has sort of paused this in order to examine. Around freedom of speech in doing this, how Hudson is the economists Asia Technology correspondent. The ruling kind of acknowledges that while there may be national security questions, it doesn't appear immediately that Aban is the only way to deal with those questions and the ban does appear to impinge upon the freedom of speech of those Chinese Americans, and so it's kind of a we're gonNA take a moment here in to check how legal this is and that makes sense because nothing like this has ever happened before. So in in what way What what are the rights that are that are under threat here? Well, it's pretty broad brush. We shot is kind of everything up and both in mainland China and and in America people, use it, use it for loads of different things they use to send money to their families. They use it obviously to communicate to the most obvious analog. There is something like what's up but also has personal finances. It has news it's kind of like. A little internet in a box and for a lot of people that's the whole Internet, and so that's why cutting it off is such a risky thing and yet the fact that it's sort of all of the Internet in a single APP is particularly important in China where not only are other services. Particularly Western services blocked Yukon download them from APP stores in China, things like twitter and facebook and what's up, but the communication on we. Chat itself is censored according to the Chinese government sort of prescriptions and so in a way, this freedom of speech argument is actually a question of whose freedom of speech you know do we want Americans to be free from Chinese censorship or do we want them to be free to use a service that they want to use? It's a it's a difficult question and so on. What grounds is the trump administration trying to ban it. Well, the stated reasoning is that we chat presents a national security risk to America and to American people. As with Tiktok the idea is that data about American sort of intimate data communication with their families. Businesses can be harvested through we chat and sent back to the Chinese government for various purposes. The other concern is that we got sensors conversations on its APP and both of these have grounds. In fact there there's research from the group. Called the citizen's lobby in Toronto which does showed that we chat is censoring various kinds of communication, not just in mainland China but all around the world for its extra China, which users. But there's a more skeptical angle to this on the government's motivation, which is that being tough on China looks good for trump in the run-up to an election and it puts Joe Biden in a corner to sort of force him to take position on closeness with China. To how does the discussion around we chat fit into the the rather longer running one about Tiktok the difference between the two of them is that TIKTOK has American investors tiktok has its roots in the acquisition of an American company, and so that gives America sort of jurisdiction over to talk because America's always had control over investment in the United States, and that's the kind of starting point for the examination of Tiktok and the administration's talk on talk we chat doesn't have that. We chat doesn't have any American acquisitions that formed it. It's a much older piece of technology and it's much more sort of purely Chinese. So the only way that the administration has to attack tiktok is through this very unusual executive order that resulted in a list of transactions from the Department of Commerce. That again important to remember doesn't have a precedent and so you know when we're looking at what this the results of this temporary stay from the judge in California will be. It's very hard to say because nothing like this is awesome before. So in in that regard, the long run outcome of this won't be the kind of division and selling jockeying that we've seen about Tiktok no, there's no latitude for that. I mean the fact is as well that we chats three point five, million users in America doesn't represent like gigantic sort of social media growth opportunity that tiktok one, hundred, million users, a brand new APP that you know all the kids. Are On that's a much more exciting proposition for companies like Oracle at Walmart that are you know supposed to be taking stakes in? TIKTOK. But the other way in which these two things are joined up is in the American government's increasing efforts to control the kinds of things that happened on the Internet and this isn't just about versus China America versus China is kind of catalyzing a much much bigger discussion about what happens online and who gets to be in charge of that. But all of this seems to be getting away from the you know free on splintered on almost entirely unregulated Internet that America pioneered. Yeah. It undeniably is is just a factual observation to say that this source of activity very top down very directly political. You know trumped basically in charge of these things and and a group of bliscoll allies starts to look. A lot like the way that China does business online and I guess that's not necessarily a problem at Priori. But it's definitely a change in the way that America does its business and it is important to remember that it's not like America. Star should this to China has not allowed loads of different American services in for a very long time and you know one. Potential. Outcome of this is that you'll see the people who really need these services using them sort of illicitly. So you start to get a kind of grey market for digital services where your ability to route around the controls that your government puts on. You dictate your ability to access the services you need, and that's probably a bad thing. Hell, thanks very much for your time. Thank you Jason.

Character of God: God's Hot Nose

"Are two verses in Exodus Thirty, four verses six and seven were God proclaims about himself. Five attributes five characteristics that are fundamental to who got Bible is I two we discussed in the last two episodes. That God is compassionate. That is he cares for us like a mother cares for a child and secondly that God is gracious. That is that he sees in us in humanity something that's valuable and worth showing favour to even though we often prove the opposite. These first two characteristics kind of Nice and they give me warm fuzzies. Many people in our culture have a default belief that if they believe in God either want to believe or just do believe that he's charitable and generous and good that he has pathos in that way many people with there's a being Burnett Energy Permeating Compassionate and gracious and what they, what describing is a being with pathos who's moved the third attribute the one right at the center of the five. Is a bit different. God proclaimed about himself that he is slow to anger and actually. That isn't really inaccurate. Thank you tend to center because it's the only one that isn't positive as such or you could say it's a stating a secondary. It's addressing something about God about how God response the anger is not a basic attribute of God it's. Responsive pattern of God's behavior. In response the evil but actually it's thirty six can bring it around and say, but slow to anger. That's what's Court. Character slow? Tang. Which means that when he gets angry, it's measured strategic. It's for a certain reason. But why an angry God. At all I mean angry people. Are Scary. Angry people are fun to be around. Angry people cause problems right What anger means to us is different. What anger meant to ancient Israelites the associations with anger way that we even talk about anger now is different than our grandparents would have talked about anger a person who is truly good. We'll get angry sometimes. If you're familiar with the Bible, you'll know there are. Loads of stories and poems about God being angry. And not just you know a little frustrated we're talking lightsout hit the mat you're done cutting. And today we're GONNA look. At many of those passages. I'm just called this the problem of God's wrath for modern readers Bible. There are some narratives where God gets angry and then he acts in some way that's terrifying and with you start to stack up these stories and take them out of context, you can end up with a pretty distorted portrait of God. Because? What the God of the Bible wants us to see about him is that yes, he gets angry at evil and violence and human suffering. But what's core about his character is how he responds and that is with patients in with four sites that God is slow to anger joining us. Here we go. We'll hello today I have the pleasure once again to talk with to Bible scholars like usual Tim McKee, how you doing today today? Yeah Good Sunny Day, and also Chris Ikea. Hey. We've been together talking through five attributes of God that God describes himself with, and they come from a narrative in exodus chapter thirty, four God is talking with. Moses. On top of Mount Sinai, we talked in depth about the context of these verses and and we jumped into two of the five attributes today. The third attributes Tim, which is yes in Hebrew it's pronounced etiquette I am and it's translated in English traditionally as slow to anger those, we're going to see the actual Hebrew figure of speech used really fascinating. What means slow to anger, but it doesn't say slip anchor in Hebrew. You know these five character traits of God and exit thirty four six are arranged a little symmetrical mirror design. So the first two are pair we've talked about those Compassionate and Gracious. and. Then the last two are full of loyal love and faithfulness, and so those two pairs surround one character trait in the center that consists of two two words and slow to anger How important is that? This is a Cayenne and that sort of angers in the middle O- Well, it's cool. Because it just means. It reflects intentional design of the communication. It is interesting that the first two compassionate gracious our conceptual pair as well addressing in emotional response being deeply moved and then graciously being generous loyal love is important pair with faithfulness because they have to do with loyalty and reliability, and then this center one here think it's in the center because it's the only one that isn't positive as such. or you could say it stating secondary. It's addressing something about God about how God response say it this way? Yeah. In the four character traits godless is compassionate. Gracious, loyal, and faithful. But he does sometimes get angry and that is a reaction of God, it's not a part of his nature. It's something he reacts to and so fact that he has to be slow to anger marks. It s kind of than the others that's I don't know the. So I've thought about in the past I. Know You guys have any thoughts about that that make sense to me that anger is an attribute of God. It's a reaction. A reaction has a negative connotation to, but it's a response at times but Compassionate Gracious. Full of low eleven faithfulness. Those are maybe more how we think of attributes of a person or of God although in the Hebrew. And I know you'll talk about this. It's not stated as a negative necessarily. So at least there's something unique about this one that is a bit different than the others I wonder too. If it's at the center because of the surrounding narrative, maybe it's a main point in what's happening with Moses and the people more than the other words are really significant to in the narrative but maybe slow to anger really defines that God is deciding to hold back his response of anger in this moment, because the context of this narrative is that while God is working with Moses to secure this covenant what would you call it assist the Covenant Partnership Covenant Argument Yeah that the remainder of Israelites are abandoning it breaking the first of the ten commandments creating an idol. Yeah and if anything's GonNa make God a bit angry that would that would be one thing. and. So that's what you're saying Chris says that the context here is God is justified to be angry but right in the center of all these attributes, he points out the actually slow to anger.

The recording booth and put he makes a whole bunch of crazy gestures faces as if you were singing but he's completely silent the song which again is a full length song of complete silence becomes an enormous hit I just like the way this joke builds in seen when when it gets put on the radio, it's a thing where I couldn't predict the jokes went and this was another one of them where you think it's going to be one of those things where it's like over everyone's like, okay, it's done but then it just cuts into everybody dancing is there's music there. And it's just amazing. It's almost like Austin powers essentially, right the the transition. The transitions are Pootie just dancing to music in. That's kind of what right isn't that it's similar. There's very there's a lot of similarities Austin powers yeah. Yeah, it's interesting. It's an interesting way to transition I'd say. It does Kinda put a stop to the movie because more in Austin powers. It's just like a real quick little scene with pootie Tang it's a minute. Right, it's just him dancing in a feather boat. I don't know about a minute. It's a long only like eighty minutes. Long I. Mean The I seen the movie when they're introducing it he's dancing. It feels like he's dancing for an eternity. got. Along but it's hilarious. Okay. As long as you. I'm glad that you're not like who knows that. That's not right. That doesn't make sense. You're actually admitting that what's happening I love this movie for all its ridiculousness if you tell me that something sucked I'm like, okay you think it sucks I found that hilarious but I'm not to tell you it doesn't suck. Well, as long as you're fair, that's all we ask on this podcast. Tells me that sucks. I was like well, I could see why you think that because it's ridiculous it's poorly put together and it makes no sense. It's but that's one of the fascinating things about human nature. Don't you think where something is so objectively terrible but someone can find value in it. Yeah. Sure. We've done hundred episodes to that fact. Yeah, I mean give or take. Sometimes we'll review a movie where we're all again. This is good but yeah, I mean there are some movies that are just so bad but people love him. Yeah it's crazy.

Know, you got your start in radio at the age of just sixteen t talked to us about your journey I like to go to eleventh grade and I was just so until with this radio station and then went to an event they were having enormous like saw some interns like hanging posters with something that the Wu Tang clan was doing and I was like this could be really cool. So I applied for the program NASA I got him but I didn't really have a plan I just knew I. Love Music and my love for music has taken me where to where I'm at now I got somebody who has dj big. Fan You want not held it down. But it's been incredible to see your acting career just flourish and you play the character of dom on most recent season of the shy conduit for the money I, do it for the culture talk to us about what it was like to play. And get into that character shirish doubt I love lean away. She's amazing for our culture and she was like I might have something for you on which to come in addition and I was like I can't mess this up like I wanna be on the shy and I got the role of dom which I love because she's so different from leaky show empowered dom as a chef that's an entrepreneur and trying to get their business off of. The ground and really focused into keeping 'em it on point so they can build this amazing business together. So I think it was a great transition into go from working with great creators like Courtney Kemp and fifty to now be on the Lena and her crew has been just an incredible transition and so there and you've been acting in so many different types of roles for over ten years I'm curious like what type of role do you hope comes next I'm always looking for relieve rooted and grounded stories just stories that matter to us. Our culture stories that we can relate to stories that people aren't telling I'm attracted to that kind of material, which is why I'm also producing house well, because the great thing about producing, find your own material and bring it to life you're working on a new project that gives a behind the scenes. Look at the NFL. Tell us a bit about this new series and why you wanted to be involved. So fifty were executive producing together the book that we read that we love and it's more about like what goes on behind The scenes with sports, but it's mostly about the women. So many women just give up their own lives just to be there for their partner, who's an athlete losing sports, and what happens when you like I have my own life and I want to do my own thing and what effect does that have, but it gets really grimy and gritty in real and obviously you know sports and athletics or something you know I know a lot about so I was able to really give some of my stories and really gives some real. Really exciting content to the show. So we're excited we're excited to hopefully be in production really soon and get that oven going you're also working on. Producing Story About Sin Toya Brown long you know young woman who killed a man in self defense sixteen was tried as an adult given a life sentence was then finally offered clemency last year. Why was it so important to you to make sure that this story was told that just such a powerful story and I had been tracking it for a while and watching toys interviews and just what happened to her from young growth? Donau. Moe's fascinated at like what? Was Your Life like that. took you down these paths and then her completely changing her life and finding God and becoming the spokesperson for young girls and sex trafficking. I thought it was amazing. So that's something we're so excited about and wanted to be so careful with because now we're telling someone's life story. You don't WanNa, take it lightly or take that for granted art. So power was truly one of my favorite shows I've talked to breathe way too much. I still found myself wondering what carers from the show would do if they existed in the real world. So We'd love it if you could just indulge us in a little bit of a game. Okay. We're GONNA throw out a scenario and you tell us which character from power best fits the situation. All right. Okay. So we all know that Joe Biden made good on his promise to choose a woman to be his running mate. On the democratic. Ticket but we want to know which female character on power would have made a better choice as a running mate. Okay. So You already know off the top of the dump quick witted she's smart. She knows the system how to get through the system I. think he'd be a great running Angelo for sure I mean she kinda got caught up by the system that numerous through it and she knows the law whether she was part of breaking the law or not. She knows the law. So I think she would have been great. All, right. Second Question. So none of the men on power were necessarily winning awards in the a good boyfriend healthy relationships department lynch two men from power. Do you think could go head to head in a horrible boyfriends verses? Who would you like to see? I think draze caring. There was a horrible boyfriend who said the daughter the always mentioned that he didn't care what happened. Durham mom probably ghost I don't love how he handled the situation between you know Tasha Angela and how he did that I wouldn't say Tommy 'cause. You did kill Holly. You're right. Maybe that's what I was gonNA. Relationship you've really love Kisha and things that he would have never heard. Anything to protector. So he might not have been the ideal boyfriend, but I think he was getting to a place where he was really trying to eat. Better. But he did last gopher. No

"Comedians are just as fucking a petty and vindictive and gang up on people as much as any other social group. So now you talking against a group so you side with the audience but you think peace writers or whatever and say hey this comedian Shane Gillis or somebody should allows his snl job because what he said was fucked up and it was raises. And you can't deduct comedians. That might cost you some gigs demise like you know what man? I don't want you on my show you win against the crew. You know the theme Blue Line of Comedy or whatever So she was also losing share to other things she relies too was. She wasn't getting the benefit of having these viral twitter threads and is that when it the lawn putting their Sarah Shaver I yeah I think that was it. Okay now. I don't know how you found that one call But Yes oh see also talked about how like. She wasn't really seeing the benefits of her threads going viral. She's not getting. Their jobs is not getting her more opportunities to do. Stand up or anything like that. What it was turned into was essentially promoter for twitter. Correct like twitter is the one that gets the actual Interaction from you doing okay. So is the Schaefer dispatch Sara Schaefer is her name I'll try to remember to link in the show notes because I I really think like I think this is like an amazing piece. She wrote So I won't go ahead and read it last summer. I was sitting at the bar before comedy show with my friend looked up from his phone. Asked me what I thought about? The latest comedy drama happening online. The New York media was getting death threats for a joke she may. Oh No. I'll say what happy I feel a tiny spike in my heart rate which is not unusual for someone like me. Most comedians. I know are enthralled by comedy drama. We are drawn to like real housewives yachts bill with women they despise before screen could describe the incident eyebrows lifted. Oh you know he said. I figured you would have already posted one of your famous. They're Schaefer threads about it. Famous Sara Schaefer threes. I wanted to crawl under the bar. Die The phrase stone because just a few weeks prior. I got into a major twitter fight with a handful of COMEDIANS and bands. It was over one of those famous. They're Schaefer threes in which I have proclaimed that booking Louis C. K. Was Boring. This anger swim comedians and they're loyal fans and resulted in the week of harassment threats and embarrassment. It also kicked off one of the worst anxiety attacks my life. I don't do those anymore. I said to my friend. The words came out bitter quick. It was not some grain Dick Declaration but instead a hurry defense against what? I fear was becoming my reputation that I was a comedian. Not Known for being funny but for arguing was I said it out loud though the idea grew into a conviction later that night I decided I was really arguing online about comedy now. These are things I went through this. You know I still kind of go through this. I don't contribute much online as I used to. I really did have headache attacks. I really have. I really have nightmares and share. Lee restful People threatening people constantly want to argue with your brains all switch to turn off and also is empty interaction. I have thirty thousand something twitter followers. I don't have thirty thousand people that. Listen to my podcast. So I'm out there just giving it for free for people but I don't have any investment in me beyond follower. Don't follow on twitter. You know four large part and then there's fans on there too but our fans listening to this if they really WanNa hear we have to say they want to hear the full context they wanna let us be able to elaborate for an hour to on some topic that this is where they come corre correct and also I think I think for me. I'M AT A. I'm actually at a lot better place and I was at one period of time and like I said I had to come to the conclusion about the Brenner. Bureaus and shit like that. Because like watching you go through a lot of those things and shit like day like for me I. I was burnt down. You know 'cause I was like. Oh both but you not going to do this. You know just speaking from my perspective. I was like okay. This is ridiculous. Yeah but you but even with that. I put that on me because you're not interacting with them on. That's me correct. So if I wouldn't have been doing that you guys go out. So this is another negative consequence of me going out there and put myself out there in that way and God damn it. I picked the terrible time to quit so many juicy comedy. Debase away to me. Snl DRAMA FAVORS COMMUNITIES COMPLAINING ABOUT BEING CANCELLED IN STAND UP specials. They got paid tens of millions to make comedian saying Dumb Shit. Weekly journalists even declare. There was a comedy civil war happening and I couldn't comment on any of it at times. The urge to join the battle was so intense that I would type in tweets over and over practically sweating as resisted the temptation engaged once again. But he's within twenty four hours at the end of the Beta died down. I will feel like I'd climbed the mountain. I had done it. I never once had regret have regretted not commenting on a comedy debate. The enormous relief. I've felt has been undeniable. No more obsessing over what I posted no more reading cruel words meant to intimidate and hurt me no more panicking over what it might do to my career. Well my peers might think of me. And if I'm on the right side or the wrong side yes because of other unspoken part all this shit the people that are out there consistently being in the muck and mire of social media. They're doing it for the social part of social media rise is about is honestly about not feeding not wanted to not fit in. What you find is if I'm constantly talking about hot topics I create a little group of people around me constantly talking about these topics and the unspoken consequence of that is if you stop talking about it. They're not your friend. Nope NOT GONNA disappear not just that but then they pressure you to talk about every fucking thing. They're talking about so if a they woke up this morning and they decided that hopefuls. Evil if you're just like on the beach schilling they're like what the fuck you're responsible to give us your time and talk about this so I guess you don't care about people that whole foods or whatever right you like this year I also each right or just life right. Everyone has life. Everyone deserves a break. Everyone deserves off days now and also. Sometimes you just don't care sometime. Sometimes you just don't give a fuck sometimes. It's NACHO table right right. Now my table bill to pay and so but but the social pressure of it. It's like no you have to comment and if you don't comment you don't care and then throwing them out. Martin King speech at you like you the white and progressive or white moderate or whatever. And how dare you right? But what they're really saying if you get down deep down to what they're really saying come interact with me. I I'm lonely. I don't WanNa talk about this thing alone. I need you to have my quote unquote back. I need you to care about this day. And what emotions do we normally see expressed in those situations. Negative emotions is mostly. Arguing is mostly. Complaining is mostly sad. Depressing Shit very rarely is is something joyous and fun. You like essentially. Don't get retweeting. Sometimes it is but no circles that she doesn't necessarily play and wrecked and fun and his own way is always at someone's expense. I always tell people this what the show every job. Somebody's experience it is. Some people are more comfortable with the joke being at certain people's experienced than others but every joke is and there's and what people are really able to do online is dissect these things that are meant in jest positive comments. There'd been able to spin them around in her brain so they can find the negative part of it correct so you could say something like man. I really enjoy going to the movies. When my wife and nine Hobson a regular motherfucking people will be like. Okay that's cool. Glad you enjoyed it. Glad you had a guitar but on social media we gotta find that angle to someone's going to find an angle to be like well. It's nice that you even have money to go to the movies and I'm sitting there. How WHY EATING EATING POPCORN BUDDHA? You're right whatever right. It's always something that they'll find the angle you know. I don't appreciate Joses. Hetero normative relationship sewing it all in our face or whatever and in so not. Everybody feels that way but once you get one point now you're living in a world where you and as one person are fucking having a conversation now you and this plan on this person that you will walk smooth down the street amount. Is now your new obsession now. The thing that you like. Why would this to me like now? You're in that person you are now attained him and that's not a good place to being And once you step back from it is hard. Not to see the con- I started noticing the pattern. One comedian does say to initially start a reaction to the woke mob quote unquote responds accordingly. Three the comedian now L. elevation draws attention to his negative feedback. Usually by between so I'll follow. See it more easily. And they add something along the lines of c trying to ruin comedy or cancel cultures destroying or. Get her boys for. The comedian has activated in a war zone. Five other communities join in a fly out to issue in black and white decrease demanding. Felty like if you don't love Comedians name you hey comedy or any comedian who was not defending. Comedians name is not a real comedian. Now there's a threat of career consequence as our business is so tightly linked to social status alkhast as a weapon. Comedians Lotta will fix aftermath. The original opinion comedian may or may not gonNA pile you but either way they have quote unquote one. They fulfil their own privacy united defender behind them and continued on with the narrative that fosters more loyalty more. Subscriptions are more tickets so is easy. Plot is pattern to other areas of public discourse as well especially the politics the arguments often say I always say say points volley back and forth again and again with no Ma's actually being changed and they like a Louis. Ck bookie has woefully predictable. I realized that by fighting these fires online I was just playing the part they wrote for me and for what I used to tell myself. I was standing for something. I thought I was using my voice to speak for myself for women for comedy and even for free speech draw. Free Speech is nice. Not The reserves for Edgy Comedians. It should be something we all enjoy. Also here's an insidious part I consciously believe they get into these types of all arguments were actually beneficial for for my career my famous quote unquote threes would indeed give me a lot of retirees. I thought who are time this because these were of a better quality than my other types of trees the positive feedback and only me and I was doing something right other stuff like jokes about Monday. Topics or anything nuance will get less attention. I figured that was because those tweets were not as quote unquote good but after years of trying to use the platform to build more followers experimenting. With how I used it it became clear. The platform was using me. It is very obvious to me now. That twitter's intentionally built to reward big opinions and piping hot takes the reason these types of our water is because all or nothing all or nothing. Inflammatory statements invite the most engagement. There's nothing the social media corporations more than for you to stay. Engaged and employee at facebook wants told me that the algorithm were wars native video and pictures and berries. Anything that would encourage someone to click to an outside link and leave their site black right and I know for John J. O. S. movies. Why jail jail? I'm actually doing good work making these videos. But you put y'all stop the shit just naturally growing shit like that like if it ain't day she they like Nurup. Yeah and you see Comedians. Having to do all these tricks right. So let's say you have a youtube video. You worked super hard. You like to get the AD revenue from Youtube by people clicking your link. What's your what you have to do like post something like. Hey I just got married for real though. I didn't get married But this'll make the algorithm boosted posts. Hey in the comments. I have linked to mom and tomorrow newest web series y'all click on it and give me some likes and Blah Blah Blah. So you have to trick the system. But what is it telling US telling you that? Facebook wants you to put on their platform so no one leaves their sight and also because they can put ads on it right so you see the facebook videos now. People's growing pains infinity. And how you know every you know. Here's an Africa now with Finnish video. You know which is the dumbest. Shit ever. Yes these comedy. Spent a lot of money figuring out new ways to manipulate. Our brains are take us hostage. If you're not sure what I mean as this which statement below is GonNa get more engagement one. I don't like the new beyond states but I can totally respect so when it does at drawl tastes in music is objective or two beyond say is trash to right obviously number two for the record. I do not endorse the statement. One or two because we all say it's perfectly is not just. The opinion is the statement was very strong. But it's also that the opinion is lacking the flattered a statement the more easily it will anger and over vote is now open to all kinds interpretation. I E more engagement on top of all this. The human being behind the statement now lacks detail as well and becomes. Assemble the one side of the argument which is much easier to attack and threaten. This is all about Zaire. Craze perfect conditions.

"So it's the we take only top forty hit me So the music video you has. The we Tang clan arguing an elevator like time machine and they accidentally solves back to DC which looks suspiciously like the set of the movie the Flintstones Oh okay so the gravel pit is a large fancy pit made from stone and bones apparently also casino with a fountain in stone-age the cars and dancing naked half naked women emerge dinosaurs so at the end of the video Bo rock-hard who is played by booking woodbine out sir He's a rival Ninja. That challenges. The wooten so resolutions the Ninjas and fights off a horde of rival Ninjas attacking the pit and each member has a a different video. It's so it's so funny. So Rizza is bobby boulders. Meth is Joe Corey. ODBC is old. Dirty blocks looks like we already use. Boulders yes go spaces named Frank Stony and Ray Quantities lex rock head. I love you. God is stone fingers and like it comes up on on the screen. They're like they're like flintstones name it's it's you're like is this but when you're watching the documentary and they showed like clip that looks like they're in the Flintstones Viva Rock Vegas. Yeah which was not the of the two. Let's shows movies. That was the bad one. I mean they were both bad but like the worst live. Watch the video and you start hearing like the footsteps of the dinosaurs of its is very funny but like the song when you listen to the song isolated from the music video. Yeah you don't necessarily get all that no it doesn't seem like the song is called gravel pit. I guess but I imagine it's not just like flintstones references abound. That's awesome so shortly before the release of the W ODBC escaped custody while being transported from a Rehab Center to a Los Angeles Court and and then was considered a fugitive. He appeared at a record release party for the album with his face hidden by an Orange Parka and he wasn't recognized until he was introduced the crowd so with police officers present outside. ODBC performed briefly and then fled again fearing captured sixties later. He caused a commotion because he he was signing autographs and a McDonald's in North Philadelphia. The man can't keep away so unaware of who was causing the commotion. The manager of the McDonald's called the police officers officers arrived. ODBC mistook them for fans. Oh until they drew their guns on him and then he fled the McDonald's but it's just a series of unfortunate very fun to read about later on you know. Yeah so he was so they're caught up to him again he he was trying to start his vehicle and they caught him up up to him and he presented a fake. Id He finally committed his real identity and then was arrested but he spent a couple of very fun ways. Yeah so the next release album was iron flag in two thousand one. Made extensive use of outside producers and guests including Ron is leeann flavor. Flav the the cover shows the members dressed in army fatigues in black and white holding up a black and Yellow Wu Tang flags so it's really You Know Mosh to the famous nineteen forty-five Iwojima flag-raising resolve okay. Yeah Oh is completely absent from this album again. Hit another thing. Yeah he had some stuff going on So the album's promotion was also kind of low key particularly in comparison to the fanfare and hype that had preceded the release of the group's previous albums. So kind of the single people know off that is called Uzi Ed Parentheses Pinky ring. So this song has a blaxploitation influence atmosphere with a lot of dramatic that corn risks and gritty drama. You can kind of hear this like funky right eight hundred seven hundred seventy six quality too graphic. I heard the friends Angela. Bassett I know right timeless so beautiful so all right. Well I was laughing for a second but bring it back down on November thirteenth. Two Thousand Four. ODBC collapsed at routings recording studio on West Thirty Fourth Street in New York City and and he was yeah he was with them and he was pronounced dead. Later that night The official cause of death was drug overdose and opt-outs he found lethal mixture of cocaine and the prescription drug tram tall and his system and again. This was just like two days before his thirty sixth birthday. I still cannot believe you so young. Well I mean at that point. I was a young teenager ager when that happened. Two Thousand Four. I was nineteen young teenager but like I. I always assumed you know like when you're that age down over the age of thirty is like you know but looking back like I was even now just until you told me that I was sure he was at least like almost fifty fifty. Yeah she's so that's rough yes so it was. It was really rough. It was really rough on the members especially those that were related to him in those those who were you know his they were been best friends for like two decades now and so it was really rough on some of them so they kind of working on their own solo things for awhile while in two thousand and five Rizo released his first book. The Wu Tang manual which lay down the Tang clan slang in terms along with listening. They're many sources of inspiration was re outlined the martial arts comic books the nation of Gods and earths and also chess course so in two thousand seven the group reassembled again really sir. Fifth Album called the eight diagrams it included lots of collaborations in the sound veered away from the group's original street sound but still debuted at number nine on the top rb hip hop albums on the billboard two hundred so it was their first full collaboration since ODBC death so eight diagrams it's titles derived from the martial arts film the eight Diagram Pole fighter fighter the cover shows kind of. Did you watch lost at all. I watched the first episode. Pay For some reason couldn't get into all right well in Zeitgeist the Dharma initiative the Octagon logo. So it's Kinda strange like when I'm looking at this covered. I'm trying to describe it. It's kind of like a Dharma initiative type logo in the sky that had Wu Tang w over for it in eight members of on the cover above city skyline and then Wu Tang eight diagrams so it included some posthumous recordings for the album. Oh Wow okay. And Rizzi used a more experimental orchestral more universal choice of music production for the album. So one of the standout singles on that is called the heart gently weeps.
