Crucial days ahead as debt ceiling deal goes for vote and Biden calls lawmakers for support
"There are crucial days ahead as The White House and congressional leaders work to pass a compromise package in time to lift the nation's borrowing limit and prevent a U.S. default. A key test will come this afternoon when the House rules committee is scheduled to consider the debt limit package and vote on sending it to the full House, officials say the U.S. risks default as soon as June 5th, President Biden says he feels good about the deal negotiated with House speaker Kevin McCarthy and has been calling lawmakers ahead of this week's votes in Congress. There are still concerns about the deal's passage with some hard right conservatives criticizing the lack of deep spending cuts they wanted, and liberals denouncing policy changes like new work requirements for older Americans in the food aid program, the full House is expected to vote on Wednesday.

Debt ceiling showdown: Biden and congressional leaders to meet as McCarthy pushes for faster deal
"The president slated to meet with congressional leaders at The White House this afternoon to discuss the looming debt ceiling. It's a high profile Oval Office meeting but expectations are low for a deal today to get the votes to raise the $31 trillion debt ceiling and keep the U.S. from running out of cash to keep paying the nation's bills. Speaker Kevin McCarthy. You've got to have something done by this weekend and we are nowhere near any of that. Those familiar with closed door negotiations say various areas of possible agreement include taking back untapped COVID-19 money, imposing future budget caps, permitting reforms that would ease energy development and bolstering work requirements for government aid recipients that something Biden has said he'd be open to. For Medicaid, it's a different story. President Biden was hopeful about the negotiations, the session comes as the president prepares to depart for the group of 7 summit in Japan, where U.S. leadership will be on the world stage.

Binance Quits Canada Over Regulatory Issues
"Let's not bury the lead. Binance has quit Canada. Citing unsuitable regulatory conditions the world's largest exchange will no longer be available for Canadian residents. In a tweet on Friday afternoon, binance said, unfortunately, today we are announcing that binance will be joining. Other prominent crypto businesses in proactively withdrawing from the Canadian marketplace. We would like to thank those regulators who worked with us collaboratively to address the needs of Canadian users. Albeit a small market, it held sentimental value for us as the home country of our founder. We had high hopes for the rest of the Canadian blockchain industry. Unfortunately, new guidance related to stablecoins and investor limits provided to crypto exchanges makes the Canada market no longer tenable for binance at this time. We put off this decision as long as we could to explore other reasonable avenues to protect our Canadian users, but it has become apparent that there are none. So I think at this stage, it's worth trying to get a little bit of the history and context for binance in Canada. Obviously they are identifying some recent limits and new guidance, but there is of course a history here and it's worth knowing. Luckily, Canadian crypto lawyer Jacob Robinson did a threat on exactly that. He writes finances founded in 2017 at which time Canadian residents had access to the platform for crypto transactions. On March 29th, 2021, the Ontario securities commission notified crypto asset trading platforms that they had until April 19th to contact OSC staff to discuss regulation. These discussions revolved around bringing crypto asset platforms, operations into compliance with Canadian securities laws. The collapse of quadriga and an investigative report led to quote regulatory takeaways applicable to crypto asset platforms, which spurred these conversations. But this common in talk actually led somewhere. There are ten registered crypto platforms in Canada, and many more gave pre registration undertakings with plans to register.

If Joe Biden Is Sidelined, Could Michelle Obama Step in As Nominee?
"There's growing concern about Michelle Obama. I don't know if you've heard this. Newt Gingrich is shining the warning about her. My buddy Kurt schlichter, man, oh man, he let loose. Remind me never get on Kurt schlichter's bad side over town hall. He writes a piece about Michelle Obama that is scathing. You want to, but his argument is, she could be laying in wait. First of all, I've been saying this for two years and everybody, oh, that's stupid. You know what people say? They say Mark, stop talking about that. Who tells me to stop talking about something unless they fear it. So thank you, thank you, thank you. She is an incredible candidate for no good reason, but you don't need a good reason. She has incredible star quality that's attached to who her husband is. And that's not to take anything away from her accomplishments, whatever they are, her services First Lady, which was fine for a Democrat First Lady, whatever. But she brings back the aura of Obama back when the Democrats had a president who could complete a sentence in the English language. She's a huge rockstar, massive positives, almost no negatives because she has no policy track record that is real. So it's not like I necessarily fear her. That's an overstatement, but would she be a force to be reckoned with in a Democrat landscape if Joe winds up being sidelined, you bet you it. Now what did Kurt say? I mean, I have all kinds of things to say about her. Her views that are terrible, but. First of all, Kurt was saltier than usual. I mean, for example, he writes, he writes, everybody knows that Joe Biden is a demented freak and a creepy confident weirdo who was an idiot before his mind disintegrated into the kind of mush that he eats on the rocking chair every afternoon watching matlock reruns.
Don't Ban Crypto! The Case for Pro-Innovation Regulation
"Regular listeners will have heard me reference a number of times a recent essay in foreign affairs by professor Hilary Allen called the case for banning crypto. Hillary Allen is a Professor of law at American university and she has appeared numerous times in front of Congress as a congressional witness about the crypto industry. The point being that she's not some fly by night critic. She is a respected and legitimate voice in Washington, D.C.. Her argument is quite clear in this piece. It's that as the subtitle says, blockchain's risks far outweigh its rewards. I don't need to go through piece by piece or line by line. A few weeks ago, I read a couple of rebuttals. It is notable that she threw many of the arguments that crypto advocates have right back in their face, including the idea that America could lose leadership and push crypto companies overseas. Alan basically says we shouldn't want them here because this isn't an industry we should want to be a leader in. I don't think that the point of this piece was actually Hillary Allen thinking that she could get people to ban crypto. I think the point of this piece was to shift the overton window to include banning crypto as an option. If that's the case, it's obviously very important to have voices who are also respected in Washington. Bring the conversation back to a more middle ground. And for that, we turn to the blockchain association's Kristen Smith. Kristen is extremely sharp. You can go see her in my holiday interviews from last year, and she has just published a piece on coindesk called the case for regulating not banning crypto. Kristen writes, American university professor Hilary Allen, who recently wrote an article titled the case for banning crypto in the influential publication foreign affairs, is part of a very small cohort of, quote, crypto banners, working toward that end. In addition to engaging the media, Alan and her peers are pushing the argument that crypto does more harm than good while speaking with federal agencies. She is testifying before the congressional hearing on the future of digital assets on Thursday afternoon. The case for banning crypto is a pipe dream. It won't happen by Allen's own admission, blockchain is a general purpose database technology that supports a $1 trillion industry, employing thousands globally, nonetheless, the efforts to ban rather than regulate crypto have only backfired and harmed Americans.

New Report Says Joe Biden Can Only Handle 6 Hours a Day As President
"To 2024, we continue to get new polls in showing that Americans don't really want Joe Biden to run for office. You know, they think he's kind of getting up there in age. Well, a new report in axios, it's website political website. Suggests that he's really up there in age to the point where he's not quite able to function the way you would expect a president of the United States to be able to function. In fact, according to this report, Biden is only functional, 6 hours a day, 5 days a week. Oh, that's a heck of a work schedule. In fact, his staff is only allowed to schedule things between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.. It's a short work day. And doesn't he like live there too? Anyway. I just get to say it's a little weird because, you know, when you're president, you kind of have a hard job. It's why when you see these presidents like they go into office and they look one way and then they come out and they look a whole other way. And you can really see how they age. Actually, I think Donald Trump was spared that. He didn't look quite. He kind of looked the same when he came out. And he also, by the way, was just a work around the clock around the clock. But, you know, Joe Biden is very disciplined. Ten to four. That's the deal. Weekends off. So how the heck is he going to campaign? I mean, I'm just asking an honest question if I were running his campaign, I'd be like, okay, so what are we doing? What are you going to do for the chicken dinner on Friday night? You know, that all the donors are paying 50 K a pop to go to. Can you go to the dinner? Can you make it up? That late? Do we have to give him time off? Earlier in the day when he has that evening event, can he travel to all these various places, manage the time zone changes and actually get up and give a speech in a coherent way? I need my afternoon nap. Oh, well, nobody expects that of him, right? Let's not kid ourselves. I mean, Joe Biden given a coherent speech.

And it's one of the stalking examples of the kind of I'm not sure if I don't know how to really describe it.

"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.

"Richard Hack. Thank you very much. We appreciate the book is called us. We want to go live right now and show you a picture. Of the World Trade Center. Where I understand. We have it. No, we do not. We have a breaking story, though We're going to come back with that in just a moment. First. This is today on NBC. Some of the first reports will have a series of those for you this afternoon. 8554058255. What are the lessons from 9 11? We're talking about that as well as of course, this very terrifying turn in America. With your Biden at this point on some sort of bizarre revenge tour against Americans and setting himself up as a dictator. Issuing orders he has to know are unconstitutional and trying very actively to turn Americans against each other at the same time, when he openly AIDS and abets the enemy not not, in a treasonous sense because treason requires intent. But no questions. His actions are empowering the enemy getting Americans killed. We've already seen 13 heroes killed because of Joe Biden and just literally inviting another 9 11. Even worse, So that's the moment we're in. What are we going to do about it? 8554058255 founders gave us away. The founders gave us this system to operate within and and lots of different ways to try to mitigate the harm in a moment like this at the ballot box and let's talk about where we go from here. All right, let's go to the phone lines. We'll start with Lynn and Denver, Colorado. You're on the Dane capitalist show Welcome. Hey, Dan, I I'm so tired of have two points. This persuasion conversations, Um, whether it's liberals are Republicans. I still get this feeling on the news and just good people with well meaning people who say If they just could be convinced. If the people who didn't get vaccinated if they just could see the light. What can we do? We don't need to criticize them. We just need to educate them. It feels so, um Condescending people who have chosen not to get the vaccine. Don't harass people who did. They don't tell them why they didn't or they don't try to scare people into. They don't try to convince them not to get the vaccine. But on the other hand, people who choose not to whether they had covid whether they have an issue that they're very nervous about whether they don't typically get vaccines or take medication. They're constantly lectured by well meaning people even and I am for one and so tired of this. They're not going to do it down. People who have decided are not going to do it, and I think diabolical. And Linda. Certainly not quick, Victor, go ahead. Well, if people are mandated to get this in a job, there's some people who might have the freedom to leave. But if you choose to get it and you take and just say the risk is it's worth the risk and it's it's not so bad and you get something that was your choice. But if somebody chooses doesn't want that, and then they don't have a job because they're forced into it, or they don't get some have livelihood. Then all and they have something bad we have We've known for people who have gotten blood clots and died a week later. So I'm not saying that's the norm. But if I choose it or something, or somebody chooses it or doesn't choose, Excuse me, and then they have a reaction. I think that that is the most insidious. Most disgusting thing, and we're we're being told to bend to the will of the government and get injected and nobody is going to change their mind down, and if they do it, I think it's so tragic to be forced into it because they can't live their life unless they do. Very much appreciate the call. Thank you have jam lines. I know an awful lot of people listening, agree with you, and I agree with the vast majority of what you had to say. I want to try to get everybody in to Lynn's point. Obviously, Joe Biden had no interest in trying to persuade people to get the vaccine yesterday was not about persuasion. It was about harassment and intimidation and threats, so he has no interest in trying to persuade us that pointed out many, many moons ago. If Joe Biden, Jared Polish the whole milk on the left had any interest in persuasion. They would have organized unity tourists, Biden would have called up Trump and said. Hey, Donald, let's tour together and encourage people to get the vaccine. He didn't do that, because it's all about politics. The fact that that that they're not requiring folks coming in illegally through our southern border to get vaccinated, but you're going to lose your job. If you don't make it clear. It's not about public health for them. It is a raw political play. Jerry and Fort Collins, You're on the damn capitalist show. Then they want to thank you for being the voice of reason. I don't how you say, Stay so calm in the middle of a crisis, But you do a great job. So you listen to you a number of times and your characterized President Biden is being either losing his mental effect. Please don't want to put words in your mouth and how you exactly freezes Sure. Or he's not very smart, but I think there's a third option and that is that he could very well be. Persuaded blackmail by China, Russia, Ukraine that second and the point too, is I don't think it's an either or on any of those issues. I think it could be all of the above that are influencing what he's doing. Jerry? No, That's good analysis. Thank you, my friend Lanza Jam trying to get everybody into Jerry's point, though, Of course, it could be a lot of different things. As as we've talked about before. Those who know as almost all of us do. Somebody who suffered through the horror of dementia. In many cases, it's not 24 7. They'll be moments of lucidity to varying degrees, followed by moments of dementia, etcetera, and if Biden is suffering from dementia is often appears to be the case. And he's in that latter category where he has lucid moments, but he has, you know, way too many moments of dementia. And when your commander in chief, any moments of dementia are too many. But the other point and it's something we'd never be able to prove right by the nature. But the simple fact is Joe Biden is more provably vulnerable to blackmail than any president we've ever had. And that's because we know the new series out there. It was put together. It had to be censored by big tech and social media and the left. He's corrupt. He and Hunter were selling access to the presidency. And so he is corrupt. And if that's what we already know, is documented. What else do you think is out there? So, yeah, you know there. Maybe I just don't want to go to the blackmail thing because it can't be proven what we can prove. Is that he's doing things that are enormously destructive to America. Highly unusual, and he's doing things that are openly aiding and abetting the enemy undeniably. So whether that's dementia. Or whether he's just the worst human to ever hold the office. The effect on America is the same lines are jammed will come straight back to a great callers. 8554058255. On the day in capitalist show..

"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. I hope you got something out of these three thoughts on tuesday afternoon again. Thanks to justin goffin his emails. Which i think are fantastic. If you're not on his list you should be but for giving me the idea to do this. Another year around the sun forty eight years old. And i couldn't be more grateful for the life i have today and for you for listening to this podcast. I really appreciate it. I hope you got something out of it. And i will see you next week on.

"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. And i wish i could remember exactly what stephens subject line was for this because i thought it was so clever because i always read the five bullet friday emails from tim..

"More i can see things clearly. The easier i'm able to deal with in handle situations and the better i can handle them emotionally right. I tend to make better decisions. So you know. If i'm in a business deal with someone that i think maybe does some shady things and they do something shady like it doesn't totally catch me off guard and sometimes i can prepare for that where i can avoid the deal altogether right but it all starts with being able to know myself. No you know my part in things being able to accurately evaluate the other person and be realistic about it being. You're gonna hear that term a lot in this part realistic being realistic about it. And then seeing the situation for what. It really is not for what i wanted to be. Not for what somebody else wants to be. What the reality of the situation is and that thinking in those terms more important than the actual results that happened so if i'm able to go into a situation and do all of those things effectively but still the deal doesn't work out or the thing doesn't go right. I'm okay with that. Because i know that if i continue to to to think correctly about the things i'm doing eventually something is going to work. It doesn't always work. It's great example. I've been playing a little poker while. I'm here in vegas. I was thinking about doing a whole episode on this. But i'll give you a little teaser in poker just because you have the best hand when you start doesn't mean you win by the end right or just because you're ahead when you get all your money in the middle doesn't mean you end up winning the hand. All of your thinking could be completely correct. You know that you have the other guy beat at this point. You could do everything right. Put all your money and still lose the hand. That's kind of that's good. I think analogy of what i'm talking about here is what's important. Is that you think correctly that you have the right strategic thinking and you do things the right way not the end result that you get because more often than not. You'll be successful but sometimes you're not going to be successful then. You may not be successful a lot of times in a row but if you can you know and if you're not success in a lot of times in a row when you have to look at your thinking and go okay well am i making them right. This like are these sound decisions that are that are favorable to me right. That are the correct decisions to be making an if they're not you adjust it but if they are the nice just the way it goes right. Life doesn't always participate the way we want. So that's number one this.

"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.

Periods of rain, arriving shortly after the morning rush lasting through the mid day hours, and some of that rain could be heavy at times with an occasional thunderstorms.

"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. Because he had the beamers he has like three series being with dinan kits and everything like he's a car head like all this stuff that people look look to in their own little ways things we should him three like all figured out all sign on it and i'm like oh man..

"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.

"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..
