Transgender Domestic Terrorist Kills Christian Children
"A terrible mass shooting by a transgender domestic terrorist. Shooting up Christian families and Christian kids at a Christian school. Now I put it this way because this is not the way it appears in virtually any headline that you read about this incident. I have a list of headlines here from various newspapers and there are two key missing words in these headlines. Number one, you don't see the word transgender. And number two, you don't see the word Christian. So the typical headline is something like hang on, let me pull it up right here. But something like 6 dead in shooting incident. Well, here we go. And yes, no mention of transgender, no mention of Christian, and in fact, there were some corrections and a bunch of newspapers corrections on MSNBC, USA Today, and so on and the correction was about misgendering the shooter. So USA Today, police on Monday afternoon said that the shooter was a transgender man, officials had an initially migen identified the gender of the shooter. So in other words, the shooter is a biological woman who was in transition to becoming a man and apparently it was, I think, was it Audrey hey, I believe, is the name of the shooter. And she was in the process of becoming, well, I forget the male name now. But jeez, this is the focus of the correct. They're worried about the feelings of the transgender perpetrator.

Prosecutors reveal planned Proud Boys witness was informant
"Prosecutors have revealed that a planned Proud Boys witness was an informant. I'm Lisa dwyer, a lawyer for one of the former Proud Boys leaders charged with seditious conspiracy, says federal prosecutors have revealed that a defense witness was secretly acting as a government informant for nearly two years after the January 6th, 2021 attack on the U.S. capitol. Defense attorney Carmen Hernandez asked a judge to schedule an emergency hearing so the defense can learn more about the prosecutors use of the informant. The judge ordered prosecutors to file a response to the defense filing by Thursday afternoon and scheduled a hearing as well, putting testimony in the case on hold until Friday. Hernandez said the unnamed informant participated in prayer meetings with relatives and had discussions with family members about replacing a defense lawyer on the case. Law enforcement routinely uses informants in criminal investigations, but their methods and identities can be closely guarded secrets. I'm Lisa dwyer

The Hugh Hewitt Show: Highly Concentrated
The Bailout of SBV
"Dave McCormick, as I read superpower in peril. I was very fascinated by the Bridgewater backstory on ESG, DEI, your tenure there, ray dalio, China. But I noted that you were making the round with Hank Paulson when 2008 collapse occurred. And I sat in the oval with W and 5 other talk show hosts on the last Wednesday of his presidency. He was explained to us the Sunday afternoons of 2008, were always spent doing something crazy that he swore he'd never do in his life, but they had to do it because 2008, we were at the brink of the collapse of the financial system. Are we back on that cliff? This week or did we were not close to that clip? What Dave McCormick thing? You know, I've learned to not be too confident. Is the honest answer about these sorts of things? I think the response particularly on the liquidity that's available across the bank system should go a long way in terms of giving some confidence. I think that we'll probably see some other banks that go through the washer here. But so I think if I had to guess, I think we probably averted any near term disaster. The bigger problem is where I started, which is you've got this low interest rate environment for a long, long time, and people are making a bunch of investment decisions based on that. And now you have a rapid rise in inflation, which is leading to a rapid rise in interest rates, which is creating a mismatch. And that mismatch in our banking system that mismatch across our economy, that's not gone away.
Silicon Valley Bank Becomes Largest Failure Since 2008 Crisis
"For the purposes of our conversation today, the key dynamic in silvergate that we want to think about is this idea of a duration mismatch between short term deposits and long-term loans. It is also worth noting at this point that banks having that sort of duration mismatch isn't necessarily them acting badly. It is fundamentally what fractional reserve banking does. Joe wiesenthal from Bloomberg tweeted, every time a bank gets into trouble, people are like, they took short term deposits and made long-term loans. What were they thinking? As if that's not the business model of every bank ever. All of which gets us to Silicon Valley bank. For the TLDR in this situation, I'm going to turn to a great little explainer from investor Jamie quint. Jamie writes, in 2021, SVB saw a mass influx in deposits, which jumped from 62 billion or so at the end of 2019 to around a 190 billion at the end of 2021. As deposits grew SVB could not grow their loan book fast enough to generate the yield they wanted to see on this capital. As a result, they purchased a large amount over 80 billion in mortgage backed securities with these deposits for their hold to maturity portfolio. 97% of these mortgage backed securities were ten plus year duration, with a weighted average yield of 1.56%. The issue is that as the fed raised interest rates in 2022 and continued to do so through 2023, the value of SVB mortgage backed securities plummeted. This is because investors can now purchase long duration, quote unquote, risk free bonds from the fed at a 2.5 X higher yield. This is not a liquidity issue as long as SVB maintains their deposits. Since the securities will pay out more than they cost eventually. However, yesterday afternoon, SVB announced that they had sold 21 billion of their available for sales securities at a $1.8 billion loss, and were raising another 2.25 billion in equity in debt. This came as a surprise to investors who were under the impression that SVB had enough liquidity to avoid selling their AFS portfolio. So as you can see, here we again have the same structural problem faced by the assets in silver Gates portfolio. Those assets had unrealized losses because interest rate increases in the wider environment had made them less valuable relative to government bonds, which wouldn't have been an issue unless they were forced to sell, but boom, all of a sudden they were forced to sell.

Nuke plant loses power again as Russia hammers Ukraine with missiles
"Ukraine's power grid operator says Europe's largest nuclear power plant has been reconnected to the grid the zapier nuclear power plant had lost power overnight as a result of a Russian barrage on ten regions in Ukraine. The plant was forced to rely on diesel powered generators for most of the day after Ukrainian authorities said the attacks had damaged power lines. Ukraine's power grid operator said in the afternoon that the power supply had been restored, and the plant was switching away from generators. It's the 6th time that Europe's largest nuclear plant has been in a state of blackouts since it was taken over by Russia months ago. I am Karen

Be Anxious for Nothing
"Talking to my friend Barry Maguire, the book is ignite, your life, defeat fear with effortless faith. So part of what we were just talking about is people feel like, oh, when it comes to God stuff, I can give myself permission to be anxious. And you think, well, here's the problem. The description says be anxious for nothing. So your neighbor's Salvation, your relative Salvation, that's very tempting to be anxious about that. And all the wrong way. I started out thinking, I have to get them saved on the spot. So now that adds extra pressures, I got to get them to the center's prayer to everything. Right now, I'm a failure. And I felt that way. It has nothing to do with timing, nothing to do with timing, as you and I both know we have long. I've been chatting with some people for 30 years and they still haven't come around. I got a call from a friend in Chicago, bill called me, and he says, our mutual friend Jack in Oregon wants to talk to you. He's in his hospice bed. So I knew what he wanted to talk about. He taught his wife, I have to talk to Barry Maguire. So I knew he was ready. So we were actually, we had an afternoon off, we're going to go to the theater, to the booth, see a movie. I said, Karen, you drive, I got business to do. So I called Jack. As a hijack, how you doing, act like I didn't know anything I'm not doing well. I said, what's going on? He explained the situation. I'm in the hospital instead of dying, and I said, and can we talk about God? Yeah. You know, he's ready for you. And I led him through the center's prayer. And then I had him repeat it again just to make sure. And then I said, guess what, Jack? We're going to spend eternity together. What?

Liz Peek: Publisher Made 'Woke' Edits to Goosebumps Without Approval
"Stine in the New York Post really upset because apparently even goosebumps has been has been cleansed or sanitized to appease the woke crowd, and they didn't even bother to tell the author. Can you imagine? I mean, what an insult is that? So apparently, even if you're one of the most revered authors in history, which Roald Dahl is and a wordsmith and someone who took every word very carefully, your work is not sacrosanct. And it was reassuring to me that in a heartbeat penguin books came back and said, well, don't worry, don't worry, we're going to still publish the originals. And by the way, on eBay, the original for going for thousands of dollars. So clearly there's an appetite for that. I also thought Todd, the whole thing that happened with Hershey's celebrating international women's day by celebrating a transgender. People really didn't like it for two days, boycott Hershey's trended on Twitter, which really, you know, it takes a lot to have that kind of position on Twitter for two days running. I think a lot of people just thought, wait a minute. This is not a woman. This is not celebrating women. I can tell you better how to celebrate women. And I did in my column, like celebrating mothers, mothers of children with developmental issues, or whatever you want to talk about, that's women, to me. And that's the kind of women we should be celebrating. So I must say, I'm also heartened. By the way, today, I read that there is a county in Pennsylvania, which has reversed its stand on being a sanctuary county. They're not going to do it any longer. And Todd, this brings home the reason the way this is going to change is because average Americans are going to wake up one day to find that their schools are overcrowded with undocumented people that their kids are not safe walking down the block in the afternoon anymore because of progressive views on how to treat criminals

Robyn Pfaffman: New J6 Videos Is a Reminder How Corrupt Media Is
"Robin Hoffman joins us and Robin, we're going to get to what's happening in Atlanta in just a moment. I want to get your take on these videos that came out last night, Tucker Carlson deserves a Pulitzer. You know, it's interesting, Todd. It really reminds me and good afternoon to you and all your listeners. It reminds me how corrupt the mainstream media is because it's that process of selective editing to show a narrative of what you want to show the audience or what you want them to see or hear, just like in the movies, right? People go out and shoot a movie, they shoot what, 40,000 hours of tape and then they edit the movie and then you get the movie that you see in the movie theater that's what, an hour and hour and a half long, they've been shooting the movie for two months. And this reminds me of the same thing where there's 40,000 hours of footage and then we saw a little snippet from the J 6 committee. And it's interesting to me to watch who everybody calls the shaman, you know, the guy who was all dressed up is he was such a threat walking around the capitol with the police with the capitol police, why wasn't he arrested? Now, people who broke windows, people who did damage, people who are actually committing crimes. Yeah. Cost them off the jail you go. But if you're just milling around and he wasn't posing a threat, screaming it, I didn't see anything of him screaming any foul language. He was crazy. Right. So what crime did he commit? And then what about the officers, right? So if they felt threatened at this guy, clearly he was dressed up. Everybody calls him the QAnon charm and whatever. But he was sentenced to what? Four years, Todd. So I think that there's dueling narratives here. I think people are seeing what they want to see.

Tucker Carlson: Famous Clip of Josh Hawley Fleeing Was a Sham
"As a matter of fact, here's the audio cut number three. When the committee wasn't accusing Republican office holders of planning riots on January 6th, it was accusing them of running away from those riots like cowards. In the case of senator Josh hawley of Missouri, the committee in their allies accused him of both. Josh hawley is a. To prove that Josh hawley was a coward, the committee released video of him loping out of the building on the afternoon of January 6th with a police escort. The tape became a staple on social media. Democrats laughed with derision. Later that day, senator hawley fled after those protesters, he helped to rile up, stormed the capitol. See for yourself. But in fact, the surveillance footage we reviewed shows that famous clip was a sham, edited deceptively by the January 6th committee. The clip was propaganda, not evidence, the actual videotape shows that Holly was one of many lawmakers being ushered out of the building by Capitol Hill police officers. And in fact, Holly was at the back of the pack, the coward tape was a lie, one of many from the January 6th committee.

Crypto Clients Flee Silvergate
"All right guys, jam packed end of the week. First of all, a quick follow-up on silvergate. Obviously they were the main character of yesterday's show and what started as a trickle of crypto companies leaving the bank has now turned into a flood. By Thursday, the list of companies that had cut ties with silvergate included coinbase circle, paxos, crypto dot com, bit stamp ledger X, CBOE digital markets, galaxy digital and Gemini. Silvergate share price dived about 58% dropping to an all time low. For those who haven't listened to that show, silvergate had announced on Wednesday that it would be delaying filing its ten K annual report, and the notice of delay stated that the bank was answering questions from its auditors and accountants needed to assess the impact of ongoing regulatory and DoJ scrutiny and needed to reconsider its ability to quote continue as a going concern. It's assumed that kraken is the only major crypto exchange continuing to use silvergate, having cut ties with crypto banking rival signature bank on Wednesday, although kraken have not commented on whether they still have significant business with silvergate or not. Now, one of the other subplots of the silvergate revelations was speculation around the status of micro strategies $205 million Bitcoin backed loan from the bank. Some breathless short sellers have speculated that the loan might be called in if silvergate declares bankruptcy. Catalyzing a micro strategy margin called that some have been speculating about since the beginning of this bear market. Micro strategy calm this speculation on Thursday afternoon, tweeting, we have a loan from silvergate not due until Q one 25. There are market concerns regarding silver Gates financial condition. For anyone wondering the loan wouldn't accelerate because of silvergate and solvency or bankruptcy. Our Bitcoin collateral isn't custody with silvergate, and we have no other financial relationship with silvergate.

The 2024 Presidential Race Is Full Throttle
"To turn to something interesting. It's sort of a hot topic right now. And I just want to get a couple of hot takes here. The presidential race is full throttle. And for the Republican side, there's people getting in, you know, all the time, we're going to talk about that in a minute. Joe Biden is still trying to figure out, is he running? Last night, he basically said he was. And he kicked off his, and I'm not going to touch on this law, but I'm about tired of Joe Biden going back and saying, we're going to come get all your automatic weapons and all your mags that look, at the end of the day, folks, it's time quit blaming the instrument. It's time we look at cities and we look at our home environments, we look at the structure of people and realize that for some for lots of different reasons, but a social structure right now has occurred in the last 40 years in this country. I went to high school in which people would bring pocket 9. We had knives to school. They would be painful in the parking lot who had near rifles because they would want hunting in the afternoon or they go, you know, whatever. Those right there. And we didn't think about using those. Okay, there was an understanding and a moral code of people live have value. And just because these are used by a stupid people to do numb things, killing people are horrific acts and they need to be held accountable for those. You know, Biden and this, I'm going to get your guns and we're going to solve all your problems. Is it really a flying age just flies in the face of those parents and those people who are grieving because somebody did something stupid? And you know, look, as we get into this presidential season, we're going to see a lot of stupid.

Not in the Mood? So What!
"So we talked about everything. The interviewed me about everything. And I told them my perhaps my favorite story, because it's so affected by life. When I told my fourth grade rabbi at my yeshiva, my orthodox Jewish school half day, religious subjects have they secular subjects, and he said it was the time for the afternoon prayer. I walked over to him very respectfully and said, rabbi, I'm not in the mood for the afternoon prayer. And it was clear he had never heard mood and prayer in the same sentence. He thought and thought and thought and finally just said Dennis prager is not in the mood for the afternoon prayer. So what? And the so what about mood, affected my life to this day? Whether I want to do something or not, I have learned to say to myself, so what? I could even do it more than I do. That is the essence of self discipline and doing what is right. And that's what you should say to your children when they say I want more candy. I want more cake. I want more ice cream. I want more video and you can say, so what? And the kid has no answer. So why am I telling you the story? I am telling it to you in light of what I just said about how the only hope is the religious. So I said to them, I applied this notion of so what, if you're not in the mood, even when I wrote ten years ago, all of you can see it on the Internet, when a wife is not in the mood. That is, I think, the title of my two part column from at least ten years ago. The left went crazy, and I'll explain why in a moment, and I said, if you have a loving husband, you have a good marriage, he's a good man, and you're not in the mood, then often, not always, but often you should say so what? I'm not in the mood so what?

"They were. 1000 years ago. Superstition in the sword ruled. It was a time of darkness. It was a world of fear. It was the age of gargoyles. Because they needed more, they liked to have it in the guy kind of characters. 'cause at the time you're doing a lot of princess movies and so they're wanting to throw in these guy characters that are really engaging. But I think as far as gargoyles, something that they did really good with is they took what was happening with, say, Batman and Spider-Man. And they made a very comic book esque storyline. And so you had a you had character arcs that you could follow and it was like 5 part episodes, you know? Which was cool and different. It was. They were just used to this episodic, like every episode was adventure. Starting from zero, new adventure. But this one, it's like, you had to be there in order to get the episode because otherwise, next week, you're not going to know what happened. So that was great, branding on that side, but also it was just engaging. I actually recently tried to go back and rewatch them. And looking back now, obviously, it's a little bit more difficult for me to be engaged, but as a kid. As a kid, this was the best thing. And then there was the daughter of Goliath and damona that they never knew they had. So it's drama. It was so good. So next up, talking about, you know, things you can perhaps miss. The snook comes in meat funny cartoon show. Yeah, this is a total, you know, thumbs down for me. When looking at this one, I maybe have a recollection of it, but I have no reflection. So it was a total dud. And no one watched it. And yeah, you know, this is also towards where I'm starting to get slightly older, you know, maybe I'm like 9 at this point. Right. So not necessarily having to come home and hit these all up. Well, maybe not because, you know, I definitely caught every single episode of Pokémon when that came out in 1980. I just moved on to different things. Snook comes in the meat funny cartoon show was not it, what a horrible name. That's no. So they go back to what works. Follow up some movies, The Lion King's timon and pumbaa. What a wonderful have their own spin off series, maybe 5 to 97. They really tried to push timon and pumbaa for a long time. I never really was into this one. I think I've maybe caught a few episodes, but it wasn't to the same level of darkwing duck. Or goof troop, or DuckTales, you know? Yeah. So then I'm just gonna yada yada, these last ones because they don't have as much meaning to me as I did. 96 and 87. It's supposed to be like, it's the Huey Dewey Louie but older. Yeah, I did see more teenage and then mighty ducks was weird because they were like.

"What's going on in your life doing it consistently and when you can do that even with some little thing even just some random thing like if you if you can't do that with things like creating content just try to build some consistency with reading book about success. Read a page a night. Just read one page a night every night. One page a night every night. Even doing those things will help you to start to develop that discipline and consistency and it will start to spill over into your life and those those things that i have done consistently while they haven't been the hardest things i've done. In fact a lot of them have been really kind of like fundamental basic stuff. Not difficult at all. But those things as i've done then consistently over time have been the things had the biggest impact on my life and really in the shortest amount of time right like i didn't really start to implement this. Do a little bit everyday kind of mentality until about five six years ago and it's amazing. The change that has happened in those five to six so look.

"Thought number two. I i i guess i already a blur. Blurb thought number two dot number two is really about how you can take something. That's working and adapt it to you. So i mentioned in the beginning about justin goffin his emails. And that's exactly what i did with this episode rate. I saw his sunday morning emails. I like them. I enjoy them. I read them every sunday. I usually don't skip any because there are short to the i'm like. Wow this works. I think this is good. How can i apply this to what i'm doing now. I didn't just want to copy justin and send it in an email. I've seen other marketers do that right. They'll send an email three thoughts on whatever on a friday and they'll say hey for this. I'm you know i wanna shout out to just i mean. At least they'll give them credit in the email. I'm taking a a thing from justin's playbook right just like i did in this episode. I tend to not like to do that. So i like to try to adapt them to some other mediums. So how. Can i use an idea that i think is good but in a way that's different from what other people are doing so in this case i did it for a podcast episode. Three thoughts on a tuesday afternoon right. You know somebody who i saw do this really well. A while back was stephan georgia who also who lives here in vegas and stephon stephan at an email called five bullet thursday or or maybe. It was even five bullet friday. Which was really interesting. Because tim ferriss has this email. That comes out called five bullet friday.

"Gatzunis here. And this past friday. I turned forty eight. I can't believe it. Where did the time go it has. I can't believe i'm forty eight. it's just crazy anyway. I'm still in las vegas right now. And as i was thinking about turning forty eight do something a little different than maybe reflect a little on the forty eight years. I've been on the planet and the past few years of success. I've had and hopefully give you three nuggets. That will help you on your journey as well and the first the first thing i wanted to do and i'm calling this three thoughts on a tuesday afternoon which this is a little bonus nugget for you. So i'm subscribed to an email from justin golf and justin. Does this thing on. Sundays called three things on a sunday morning. Every sunday he sends out three thoughts on sunday. It's a great idea right because he doesn't have to think about what he's going to write on sundays like he's got a format and he just fills in the format each week. A really great lesson there. If you're a content creator. But the lesson. I want to highlight for us. Well is. I'm constantly looking at what people are doing and other mediums and seeing if there's a way to translate that into the mediums i use so not saying you copy someone but like in this case you know justin does an email. I'm thinking well. How can i turn something. He's using an e mail into something in an audio format rate. So change it up a little right. I wouldn't do it in email and see how that goes over. So that's how we got to three thoughts for a tuesday afternoon Thanks justin i appreciate. I appreciate that. So let's let's get into the three thoughts so the first thing i want to highlight is that rate. Thinking is more important than results. And let's break that down a minute. So that term rate thinking that comes from napoleon hill. It's something he talks about. I think in the laws of success. Dan kennedy also talks a lot about right thinking and how. That's one of the kind of missed things in napoleon hill and what that what that means to me right. Is that if i can view situations for the reality that they are not what i want them to be. Like if i can see myself and understand myself and who i am and all those things i can see the other people for who they are and how how they are and i can see the situation for what it is in reality. Not some you know a lot of times. I struggle with all three of those things. Right like i tend to look at myself in the best light and maybe you know. I think my intentions are good when maybe they're not. Sometimes i do that with other people where i expect expect them. Maybe i have some evidence that they've acted in a way that isn't good but i expect them to act in a good way when they interact with me right or even the situations can be the same thing where i'm not seeing things clearly and so you know my experience show me the.

"With so younger version of you. Who maybe works for you now. Who's telling you what you need to do. And what needs to happen and this is it and is so passionate about it and can also do these things. Where like i did this like. Can you imagine what would happen. If someone just came up to us and said guess what i changed everything in the roasting and people love it way more. Check it out. Well i yeah. I don't know i never went there. I i always got permission for responsible enough. Most almost always to get permission first or like there was a lot of conversations before trying it. I i think a lot of what we learned is what we do. Now which is back things up have people and ourselves be able to back it up with values emission because you can talk through and then if there is a discrepancy at the n. Word like it could be a yes everything it could be a yes on both sides then it comes down to the splitting hairs of having a real conversation as to why we would or wouldn't with intention. My problem always is. There wasn't a specific intention as to why yasser why it always like nah. you know. that's that's the thing. I'd never was able to respect. My parents to like mets aren't sitting. No you can't do that but never told me why. I just can't deal with that. You know it's hard. It's hard to work at a place. That doesn't have a really strong sense of purpose. And that i think that's probably the same reason that i ended up moving on from some of those other jobs. It seemed really cool like even the first job. The owner dude. He not have a clear vision. Do the bought it. He kind of wanted it to be. 'cause we had beer on tap to school was an adult place but he kind of wanted to transition into almost like adding some more food. Make it a pseudo sports bar vibe for his friends at night and cop shop in the morning which if you figured out a way to do it right could actually be cool but you have to do a really really right because as you know one or two ways it goes right and a million ways. It goes wrong right but he bought it. I think as a status symbol. Like i own a business in town. He was doing real estate stuff. This is my this is my thing and he was pretty open to exploring better coffee quality because he did want business to be better so i would bring in the david. Schommer espresso vijay. Dvd's right and we would all watch those and the staff fucking was hating on me at this point because it was started to be this huge separation like you're experiencing to her. I was like the weirdo right. Like dude chris's bringing in dvd's where we have to go to a staff meeting and watch some fucking goofy s. Do with a bolo tie and stars on his apron. Talk about pulling the perfect shot for forty five minutes. Like what the fuck is this dude like. They'd be giving me looks like dude. Fuck you did your ruining my life here. I'm just trying to go back out and party. And i'm like dude. We gotta make microphone news. This guy's cram guys seeing what's possible here and everyone's like owners on board. He doesn't even know why just wanted to be good and everybody that works with me. Just fucking hates my guts and like that that can only go so far before you really really want to make that commitment to what your level of quality means and i think the biggest difference even in just asking you that question one of the big differences that i see between us and them at the time is that we've spent years with our craft right and we know exactly what we're talking about and we have a very strong vision of what we want to coffee that tastes like and what we want to service to be like. And it's tried and tested and modeled in like just honed over years and years and years and most of the people that i worked for or just kind of new business and it was almost like a hobby right. Your situation was deeper into coffee for share right but neither one was really like okay. I have a vision for what this place is. The ultimate vision. No i agree. I think what's interesting. I looked back in there. We actually had like a pretty tight group of people who wanted the same thing and that probably is a little bit of what probably turned off. The owner to me is that i was able to rally that group. I think what it was is he he did. He had a clear vision of what he wanted his places to look like in terms of like. If you walk in you want to look and feel like this. But it didn't have to do with the things that i was passionate about because i wasn't passionate about how the place looks like at the time design was not at all. My interest interest was the craft in the service model. So i was like. How do we make these drinks. The best how to make them the fastest. And how do we serve the most people because part of it too is the original manager had told me like. Hey the bestest place has ever done. He gave me like dollar metrics for certain times of the day. All but this part of the day we've never done more than this by this point. We've never done more than that. And i was like. Oh i'm going to beat that right because you wanna be. I wanted to be successful. So i was gory into. I'm like okay. Well that's their metric is the coffees quality like microphone and flavor and then numbers get people in and out and so i was able to crank those things but the way i was doing it wasn't in line with the person wanted and the other part is is like people back in the day and different people. They don't always wanna do business for the same reason so you know i don't know how's business practices worked or didn't but i knew that he had a bunch of sick ass cars and he would let you like winners over by doing. Like these flashes of niceness where it's almost like stockholm syndrome vibes where you like. Oh is a person like. He's out there just sitting. There petting the dog on christmas day by himself. Like dude home. He was always in the six pack of beer drinking and driving at the time cigarettes inside outside it was psychotic i it was. It was at the same time. You're turning twenty three twenty three. You wanna take lease out for twenty four hours. And i'd be like oh. Yeah i a dream got to but he would be like. There's a computer trip in there. And if you let rpm's get over something super-low it was like five rpm five chip's gonna see i'm gonna take it to the thing and i'm going to know so you better not take it over five thousand rpm. It's like a gift but not exactly doing you a favor. But he's at the same time. I mean he offered to like he's all you want to in three.

"Pieces of magic like that job that i was talking about the second coffee job i had even though i was just kind of left to my own devices. The owner was really open to the coffee experimentation. Because i was. I was just kind of going in. That's eight. I made the transition because he was only in town. Who had a llamas. Okay i was like oh you got alarm level grinder over there. Let me get on this formula. And i had bought some of my own grinders off of ebay by that time. And this is a gear head over here in the make. Here's the deal so in. I don't know exactly what the year is. But when starbucks transitioned out of using lineas and mazar grinders to their super automatics. Basically there were these huge like storehouses. Who would buy all that equipment and resell it on ebay. So there's this period of time where you could cop four group lineas majors super jollies all this shit for just so fucking cheap. And when i was at my first job. I bought a super jolly which is the smaller flat flapper mazar grinder bigger than the mini like smaller using a cafe. And i was like oh this is dope took it apart. Stripped the paint off the whole thing repainted. It and then. I think my friend vito got one too and i was like dude. Fuck you. i'm about. I'm about to buy a major here. You can't come up on my shit like trying to get on this. There can only be one they can only be one. I'm the coffee guy in town. Maybe one i'm the dude. All right just leave it alone. So i had this major that i bought and did the same thing to it and i would bring those in and then oh dang so many things coming back to me right now. Isn't that weird. So in between my first and second job the first job was the people who own the own the story. I had somehow convinced them even though i wasn't working there anymore. They were renovating the cafe. Do the bar at the first job was sick. It was a horseshoe bar with a to grinchey leo on it and grinders and then there was a second counter behind it. That was the whole bean wall which also had another two group ranch. Eleo and grinders as ahead of the game with a under counter batch brewer so kind of the exact same way that we have a dope they were they were on some. They were on some shit time. What early two thousands. This was opened. They open the early two thousands of the time. Right they open. I think in eighty nine. They were doing espresso and small town modesto in like the late eighties early nineties before we had any starbucks in town. Yeah that's cutting edge of the whole lot thing. So they were they were in that zone and they let me or i convinced the dude maurice house like dude. You're doing the little rock thing was like. Let me get that. Let me get that other to group on the back bar because he wanted to turn it into more of like a chill vibe like some of the coffee stuff i was like. Let me take that home instead of putting it in storage. And he's like you want to take it home. I was like yeah. He's like i don't know if it works. It works i. I can fix it make. You approve new tool set over here. You can't fix this. So i took it home and we just moved into. A new house is like me. My friend dave and and we didn't have a washer dryer so hooked up the espresso machine the to twenty where the dryer and i had a to group ranch. He'll and a couple of grinders on janki stoop or wack table. It was like borderline falling down in our laundry room and that lasted for about three to four weeks before dave. Okay dude. we're going to buy a washer and dryer and with what so lame. That's pretty bad. It was school breslin machines special. I was making coffee at home and then with my new job the dude was he was down about letting me. Bring the grinders in and playing with coffee menu we use tailor-made coffee their cover up north of the game two days to be really like i don't wanna say famous but famous for vahid had specialty coffee can Like folger's style go to. They were organic before everybody else so they were ahead of the curve on the organic thing. Right that is one espresso. Called organic panic. Which was i think. Fifty percent organic robusta. It was just like jet fuel and run into the vein. Rob who at the time was the sales rep. I reached out. And i was like rob like i work at this little town. I'm over here coffee creek. That's where we were over here. Coffee creek what's up with some different. Espressos these grinders. I brought in from home. Let's party and he was cool super cool. That's pretty bad. He came down. He visited from santa rosa and he came and he brought a bunch of different coffees and we did a cupping and he was floating us basically small amounts of free coffee and our orders. And i was just put him in the second grinder and playing with him trying to get people. Hooked on weird coffees and started developing like a little cult. Following of. I mean probably just a handful of people who came in to get different. Strange espressos weird cappuccinos pacino's yes. It's interesting because i think back now. And i'm like okay. The person who who opened those shops was mostly interested in style and then kind of like an elevated like an ideal of having better so for instance. There was no. Specificity are really around the coffees that we serve. We get asking kind of learn but really the idea we serve grand. Cru coffees so like chamois dude and so like you. Think back and like oh. This person is selling what they believed to be like an elevated experience. So the selling points. Were i mean kind of stylistic like pinup girl navy vibe mixed with like vintage danish modern seating in just like the lounge vibe right literally why that was called the launch but then there was this other parts we serve grand cru coffees. Which is you're able to say like the top. Two percent of the world's coffee in quality at the time i think right is like the highest grown and and i mean at the end of the day that means most of them were from guatemala which we found out because that's where strictly hard being coffees which was another thing he sold in grand cru. Coffee really came out of it. Was that sp- place but that's not how we spoke of. It was the other way around. So it's interesting. Because i was always into and we need to know the history. We need to pass a test so work there and like ninety percent or above which was essentially yielded coffee per per plant per year a pound and a few other details allegation reuss versus arabica. Rabah very very simple stuff like louie the fourteenth actually. I think that was the next level but like who who brought the cops. Louis it's all that classic coffee come from some the lore and Our boy gandhi gandhi called kaldi goats and yet another story of call the and be able to write about it but now that i'm realizing a lot of that was kind of the ability to speak on and less specifically about quality and i was super about the next level quality i think where we didn't jive as he wanted microphone which i think that was ahead of the game is like being able to. Steam microphone was tight. I wanted to keep going up levels and often push for that. And then i'd get people interested in pushing for that and that if somebody doesn't want to do that which is kind of always been like my achilles heel for companies i worked with this is like i'm going to continue to push for that stuff no matter what and unless the owner literally says i don't want to and owner who has some sort of ego whatever say i don't actually want to pursue that stuff which is actually okay to do is the funny part. It's okay to be like i'm good here. This is not what we're going to do but instead what would always happen. Is i get fired. And then just be like. Yeah this guy's out of here or or this wouldn't listen tonight up. See myself out but it was always at the it my own cost of not being able to let it go in. Yeah i would always want to keep pushing. That's cool and then i'd always find like i always find reasons but come taste with us like every he's going to tell you this is better. I got you. I wanna make it better. We're going to make it better and that was always been like my my friction and companies. It's such an interesting perspective to have now. Because how do you balance that.

"I think he came out of there but Yeah i did not go searching for coffee. Stop anywhere i like. Try to maybe see some friends in santa barbara city college. That's so isla vista quite the trip dude. Those trips are crazy man. The world is different. You've had the worst. Your work stories are way worse than some of mine. That's because i was thinking about it yesterday for somebody who like theoretically acts like. He's not very like maybe more confident than he is. I'm i'm confident now comparatively but i was so confident i would not stand up for myself like puled. Walk all over me and i think they would use. They knew that they could get at me. I think interview the person was like he asked me a bunch of stuff. That's legitimately illegal and intimidating. And just because he knew. I needed the job and wanted to work in coffee. So bad that like thousand kind of person that he would hire the person that he knew he could push around. I got pretty lucky with most things early on i. I always had this little bit of layer of protection between me and who could have been my terrible boss at the time which is pretty rad. Like what my first coffee job. The people that own the company also owned the resting company that supplied us and they've been in the game for awhile and for all intents and purposes. They were pretty cool right. You know they were chill and like my friend. Got me the job. And i didn't know anything and he was kind of the unofficial manager. We didn't really have a manager but he was the dude who was super serving really aggressive. And he's like. I know pretty much everything. So this is how shit goes. And i was like all right dude. That's kind of tight and you just do all the stuff. And i'll i'll make the coffee and make the chicken wraps in the back and i never got asked to do any weird sketchy just nothing and it was so cool and i remember. That job was the first job that i ever turned down. A management position at because that company got sold. The shop. got sold to this dude. Maurice who didn't know anything about coffee and just kind of wanted to place a hang out for him and his grows. And i had a cool relationship with him he was pretty tight to. He's like dude. You have the manager man. And i was like fuck no. I'm not trying to have any responsibility kidding. Me you've got to be the man. I was like you need to make manager. And he's all you lead by example though and i was like that's cool but i don't care all. I don't really wanna do this. No chance and the second coffee job that i had was probably more along the lines of the coffee job. The you're talking about which is probably more along the lines of what most people have experienced from a first job or just generally unprofessional. Random environment was where the dude who was. Also you know cool dude. Got along with him. Well just didn't show up ever didn't do any training and you just kinda thrown into displaced where you're working by yourself alone for hours at a time and someone was there in these little inbetween time to kind of train me but i remember people coming in and asking for things i just didn't know how to make and i would just make shit up on the fly to try to make them as happy as they could and i would just crank the charm up to like level eleven right just being the nicest fuck dude possible trying to make them feel as good as possible feeling like a total piece of shit because i kinda know not giving them what they want being too scared to actually out out out source information to them and be like okay. I don't know how to make that kind of guide me through because that made me feel weird got. I'm like yeah totally for sure. This one dude. Who like i dunno know. Just didn't nicest guy ever him and his wife came in every day. And i'm pretty sure i blew their order like every time but oh man. That was a really bad feeling to be on board and left to my own devices so weird time felt almost better with that then the other way around because there was this like there was just the places that i worked. Well i mean there's only there's only really one right before we started verve in santa cruz so the thing was the dude was really interesting. And such a polarizing character that people both feared him and they wanted him to validate them. Maybe because when you're in a small town like certain people who seem successful when you're young especially and especially in a small town like they have something that you don't so they must be doing something that you should follow if you want to have any sort of like airs of success in your future so there were a lot of people that man i mean he spoke with authorities spoke like this is how it is and he came out of the navy. This person so it's like. I'm sure there was a legitimate of ptsd in there as well as like this is how you do it so there were things that that were cool right. There was like there was a style to their places and there was a style to a level of. This is what cleanliness should look like. Although the thing that i always struggled with is it was so hypocritical because it was picking choose of what the owner will like so it was like it wasn't quality wasn't quality across the board. It was this is quality. This is the standard. It's super high here. But it doesn't matter at all over there and that ultimately is why he like. He ended up letting me go because he allowed us for a little while to experiment. Coffee roasting and. I didn't know enough at all but i definitely roasted like one or two coffees a little lighter and the thing that sucked is that everybody would serve them to like to them more but he never talked about why he just decided that we shouldn't do it like that anymore. Never talked about it and man. I always would push back. He hated it. Because i always wanted it to be the best then. It was the same thing as like. Make these all these orders. Perfect go to go to cosco and smart and final places in by like for four different cafes all of their paper goods and most of their nonfoodstuffs that'd be like chocolate syrups sugars like everything. Flower paper cups. All of it out of cattle them the skews memories role in the. Hey where's the freaking sixteen and then it would be like if you miss one thing as the person working basically by yourself double checking these orders. There'd be a threat of losing your job. And i'm like could we just find digitally log this stuff or something like find a way besides just a pick list and then me gathering it all by myself while roasting all the coffee and bagging all the coffee like. Is there a way to do this better. And i didn't like a system so in the long run ended up. Firing me for it and try to get colby. Fire me from nigga lounge to. He's all you got to fire this kid. So wait he fired you from the roaster. Oh from the word still work naked lounge. Chico stayed he kept sacramento had like naked lounge at a place called tupelo in another couple jams that he was trying to work on. So you're never fired from the cafe not the cat. Not the original knows just like you can roast coffee anymore. Yeah and then. He tried to get him to push me out altogether. But it was like i was the one who i was amongst the ones who gave the best service and was also both to the credit of the company and also the discredited myself was kinda down for anything like i was the yes person whatever you need l. show up and do it. Yeah dude if you get a yes person yes. People are good fines especially if you mentor the person in the right environment. That's kind of worth its weight in gold and you it helps to have someone who's not on the other end of that shit like not abused that yes person. I mean no absolutely like whether or not it was good or not like community. Thought i was good for one but the company besides when mark rowsell was was running it after after i left and came to santa cruz. There was two times with that. That store was epic in those. Were the two times and then i think kinda did well after i went back way back in the day but apparently they're back open in using rosalyn coffee now a whole different thing who knows what that means. Let's go to chico right now. What they do..
