Michael Pack and Eric Discuss the Humanity of Clarence Thomas

"Honestly, we're talking about clarence Thomas, just this man, so great. And what I think you just said, Michael, is that when you made this film and how people saw the film and I know if they read the book, it's going to be that much more in spades. You realize how likeable he is and how much sense he makes. And in a funny way, that's another thing that conservatives have done very poorly is to show the humanity of some of these figures. We're always about ideas and about well, you know, what about the life story? What about the backstory? What about your family? When you see the humanity of people, it's harder to demonize them. That is a very, very important point. You know, maybe all your study of the Holocaust Eric brings that even more strongly to mind. But that is really true. And people want to put clarence Thomas in a box. They want to, they want a caricature of them, but they also want to label him. And so in just the coverage of the jobs opinion, people want to say that the court took a stand against abortion, and abolished abortion. But they did not. They took a stand on that. That's a lie. It's a lie, but people are happy to speak lies just as they're happy to demonize and dehumanize other human beings. Now, by the way, folks, if you have to do that, that might be a hot tip that you're on the wrong side of an issue

In case you haven't been paying attention, the Biden administration has caused a financial crisis and they have no clue how to fix it.

"And it's so interesting to me that you link this, that you link the two. Yeah. Well, and I can also tell you this. So I found out very early in my life that there's two roles, I believe that we can play in our lives. We can either play the role of the victim. Or we can play the role of the big door, right? And that is really what it boils down to. So what kind of dialog are you going to have with yourself? Are you going to have the victim mentality and tell yourself that, oh, because the circumstances, I couldn't do this. I couldn't do that. I couldn't do the other thing. Are you going to take the victorious role, the role of the Victor and say, you know what? We live in the greatest country on the planet and this country allows us to do anything that we want to do. All we got to do is roll our sleeves up and get to it, you know? And think the right kind of thoughts. Again, your thoughts become your actions, your actions become your habits. Your habits are what drives you through life. Do you have healthy habits? Do you have unhealthy habits? You know, be nice to yourself for goodness sake. Yeah. And I'll tell you what fascinates me, really, is like, you know that that works. You know that this is right. But there are people that they've got all these reasons not to do it. And to them, I would simply say, okay, whatever. But here's the issue. It is God's will for you to think those positive thoughts. It is God's will for you to have his opinion of you. Not your own opinion or the negative opinion of somebody who raised you or it is God's will that you hear what he has to say about you and that you agree with that. And I think if you don't believe in God, you can just say, well, I can do whatever I want. I can just destroy myself. But if you realize like, no, he wants to bless you. He wants you to be victorious. He wants to use you for his purposes. That's his will. And it's beautiful for me just to see you letting him use you for his purposes to bring attention to the greatness of this nation to the greatness to the great ideas of freedom and this kind of thing. If there's anybody who would have excuses, you would have excuses growing up in the foster system, abused. I mean, but you choose to believe what is true over those other voices. From your lips to God's ears. And I mean that because we are the divine creations of God, right? And that's what we are. We are part of God. And all we got to do is look in the mirror and we got to embrace that and we got to grab the wheel and we got to drive, right? The mind's like this big D 9 dirt mover, right? With a little guy on top, driving it. So, you know, what are you going to do? Let go of the wheel and let that thing run into the ditch or you're going to keep both hands on the wheel of that incredible machine and drive it in the right direction. I just love it. So your website is quit proof dot com. Quit proof QU IT proof dot com. And united we pledge people can find out more at united we pledge dot org. Tom Jones, we are just proud of you and glad to get to know you. I'm glad my audience gets to.

"Yeah, which was really old sort of lead belly type, blues, you know, they call it schiffer. So I did some shows with him, and he said, look, I've just written a song, and you would sing the shit out of it. So he played me a demo that he had done on it. I'm never going to fall in love again. And I said, well, that's never going to cease my wandering. He said, yes, it is. But he said, there's no chorus, he's never going to seize my wandering. I see. He said, we changed the words. And then put that fall in love. That wasn't in the original. That wasn't there, which is the most commercial part of the song. And I said, oh, I got to do it. I'm going to try this. And so I said to Peter Sullivan, loni Donoghue has written this song, and I want to do it. Okay, let's do it. So we did. Then when I did it, we used to get an acetate. To take home, you know, to play it at home. And I took it home and we only had the one, right? So my wife took it to my manager's house. We lived close in England. She said, this is what Thomas just done. Well, they were fighting over this acetate. My wife and my managers were. To keep it that night. My wife says, you know, it's my husband singing it. She said, yeah, but my husband manages. It was a big fight over this one acetate because that was the only copy that we had at that point. So to get two women fight it over a song, I thought it was a good sign. Well, this is gay. This is going to be a hit. And of course it was, thank God. Yeah. It's such a great song, the energy of it. And yes, the hook eNOS of the chorus. It's got a real sing along chorus, and the vocal performance is just stunning and you save the big note for the ends, almost like a Roy Orbison type. I mean, you're not singing like him, but the drama. It's building up. Yeah, the structure to the big note at the end where you can't think it could get any more dramatic. And then you go there. It's so beautiful. But a great song. Yeah, thank you. We'll be right back after a break with more from Tom Jones and Rick Rubin.

C 5G device coverage and access details at T mobile dot com. We're back with the rest of Rick Rubin's conversation with Tom Jones. So talk more about live performances and where were the types of places you played once you started having success and anywhere in the world, right? So it went from I played these air force bases, American places in and around London. And we would play then ballrooms, dance halls, people that had hit records in those days would play either theaters or dance halls, one show at night. And some of them were on peers, they used to have peers in seaside resorts, and you'd have a dance hall at the end of the pier. Just like in the states said the same thing. So we would then go and play these dance halls in the summertime, especially on the end of these peers. But then we started getting interests coming from northern nightclubs in an art of England. So my manager and my agent, and they said, we get a lot of requests from clubs, dance halls as well, and theaters as well. But these clubs now, you know, up in the north of England, they're putting on a lot of cabaret shows, which were like mini Vegas when I went to Vegas. I saw the showrooms in Las Vegas, and they had things very similar, not as grand, but in the north of England. They had these nightclubs you see, because they had casinos as well coming in there. So then I started playing these northern clubs. Well, they were like glorified work events clubs that I had played in South Wales. So that's what happened. So it's been a problem. Maybe a nice problem. I don't know. But my audience has always been a wide variety of people, you see. So I could play the kids, you know, even in waves I could play a YMCA to teenagers on a Friday night and play working with club on a Saturday to adults. So the same thing basically has gone through my career. I would play the talk of the town, for instance, which was a huge nightclub in London in the 60s and my agent, my American agent came to see me there and he said, you got to play the copacabana in New York. This is where it's hot. So I said, okay, so that I played the copacabana. And they were saying to be friendly enough, they said, are you scared? Because it's like a lot of gangsters go in there. And I said, excuse me. If you've sung to call minus and then why is it girlfriend? The mafia doesn't escape. The only difference is they got guns. You know, we didn't have guns, but to get over to those people, you're going to be able to deliver. So that was a big thing in 68. I played the talk of the town in 67 in London, and then 68 I went into the corpora in New York, and it was a tremendous to play a place where all these giants of American show business had played before. Everyone. Then that led to the flamingo in Vegas. And the dough will in Miami. So a lot of these clubs then nightclubs. But then when my TV show hit, it became so big that I started playing arenas. Wow. Basketball arenas, which people had never played before. Yes. They had never had musical venues, maybe my Madison Square gardens, I think maybe it was the only one, but all these big basketball arenas then I started playing because the clubs got to small. Even though I was still playing Las Vegas, you know, I was still going back to Vegas. Yes. Which I used to moan about because I say, how come I can make as much money on one night playing an arena. They got to play a week, two shows a night in Las Vegas, but they said, well, you know, that's the way it is. But there you go. You do it. When you're young, you know, you get in front of up in front of people, whether it's 2000 or 20,000, your performing, and that's what I do. How did the audiences react to different songs in different parts of the world? Is it pretty consistent or are there variations? It's about, yeah, it's about the same. I mean, I'm always aware if it's an English speaking audience. Yes. If I'm in Britain or I'm in America or Australia or Canada or I'm aware of it. But all of European countries you see all the different countries, they love all the stuff that I do. So I surprise that I had in the 70s when I went to Japan. So I said to promote any songs you think would go over more in Japan than and he said, well, you have to do Danny boy. I said, Danny boy, because I had done it on my TV show. And they sold me doing Danny boy. And I said, well, do the Japanese people understand? The story of and he said, it's the emotion. Wow. They feel your emotion when you sing it. So that was a big surprise to me. That I had to keep Danny boy. In the show in Japan, especially. Yeah. Yeah. But what I play Israel, you know, my yiddish..

"24. And how did it work out for you to get signed and tell me, tell me the first experience going to London? Well, what I did, I didn't audition. They had heard me saying demos into sending demos to different record companies. And decker records, Peter Sullivan. He heard the demo that I sent. And as we would come to London and do an audition, which I did. And he said, fine, we'll sign you. If you find it for three singles, it's like three strikes and you're out. You get three. Yeah, so be the chills and fever, because he'd heard me singing, you know, and saw me in these clubs when he came to see me. And thought a rock and roll record would be the way to go. So that was the first one. And then it's not unusual was the second record. So then I was then I was flying then. Amazing. And that essentially has been, I guess it's the song most associated with you still to this day of everything I think. Yeah, yeah, it is. Well, I think maybe because I had a TV show with the late 60s, early 70s, and we always opened the show, singing that life. You know, I signed it every time live on the show. So I think people heard that more than anything else, because anytime anybody sees me, if they go to sing something up me, it'll be it's not unusual. Tell me about the TV experience. What was that like having a TV show? It was fantastic because I could then get people on that I wanted. Like, Jerry Lee Lewis was on one of the shows. Little Richard was on the shows and then a lot of Motown action of Stevie Wonder had just come on the scene. Great. Ray Charles came on, Janice Joplin, came on. And she wouldn't do variety shows in those days. You know, she said, I'm only doing it because it's you. Wow. And I said, well, thank you. And we did it. We did a hell of a duet together. I remember. Great. Did you do duets with everyone who came on? Yeah, everybody, yes. Wow, fantastic. Yeah, it was tremendous. And Wilson Pickett, you know, we did hey Jude and barefoot and great on Ray Charles and yeah, everybody, everybody that was around in those days. But I had to push for Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis. Because they said, oh, 50s rock and roll. And I said, look, please. Once the show was a success, I had more of a say in it. I mean, I wanted to get chuck Barry. I wanted to I wanted to get Fats Domino, you know, I wanted to do a lot of people. But if they weren't selling records at the time, it was difficult to get them on. We have to take a quick break, but we'll be right back with more from Rick Rubin and Tom Jones.

Just in terms of what's it like, what was it like when you started? What was monitoring like? What were the audiences like? What were the venues like? Talk about all of the different things you've seen over the years because you've seen it change completely from the early days I imagine. Oh yeah, well, growing up in Wales, I would sing, first of all, in school, you know, and then chapel, you know, that's what I, that's what I learned to get in front of an audience, gatherings, weddings and parties in the house and I come from a large family with a lot of aunties and uncles and cousins, and we all were all singers, really. So there was a lot of singing going on in South Wales. And everybody loved singing. And there were a lot of singers, so I would go and watch them when I was old enough to go into the local club, who work in this club. And there were singers that would get up there and sing songs, Frankie Len songs, and songs like my mother's eyes. You know, there was this big rugby player that used to get up there. And all of a sudden, me and my teenage, we'd say to come on Glen oak, his name was Glenn Evans. Great name, huh? Come on, give us a song. Sing my mother's eyes. Sort of half making fun of him. By the time he finished, there wasn't a dry eye in the place. You know, I mean, his felt like, I mean, he did. He just stand there and sing the shit out of my mother's eyes and you think, oh my God, that's it. So I got that. And then listening, as I say, to early to the blues and to gospel and stuff on the radio, that's what I was listening to. So I would incorporate that sometimes when I would get up and but I would always like, for instance, when I took a rock and roll band into the workman's club, this was in the late 50s, they had never seen electric guitars in these clubs. And drums. You know, but I was saying I was singing with this local band in a YMCA. So I said to them, do you fancy coming into one of these clubs? I used to play guitar and sing, you know, just like that. In these clubs, would you fancy it? Oh, but we've never done it. I said, well, let's try it. So we go into this work and it's club. And they had a habit if they didn't like you, they would show pay him off, which means pay you not to play. Yeah. Just pay them and get them out here. So when we were walking in with the amplifiers, you know, when the guitars and the drums, oh Jesus Christ, you know, we don't want any of this crap, but I've been there before, you see. I've been to these clubs. And I get up and say, oh, look, fellas, you know, please give us a shot here because you know me, oh, yes, you are lovely, Tommy. Tommy's gonna lovely voice, but we don't want this rock and roll. So I said to the band, the first time I remembered it so well. And I said, look, we start off with, I believe, funnily enough. Yes. I will do it. We'll do it. I believe. We'll do my mother's eyes. We'll do we'll do my year to show mama. Because I heard Billy Daniels do it. So we would do these things and then when everybody was like, yes, yes, we get it. We love it. All of a sudden, you check that nerves and you ran up, you know what I mean? They were like, you know, so that was it. Yeah. And then in one night, I remember from this pay them off when we first walked in. About halfway through the night, the federal book is there. He said, if I call the police station and get an extension on the liquor, the liquor laws only went to like 11 o'clock. He said, if I could get the legal off to 12, would you play until midnight? Wow. I said, yeah, if you pay us a few, I feel more pounds. So it was all in one night from pay them off to could you could you stay till midnight? I moved move all the tables and chairs back and they all had a dance. So we took rock and roll music into these work them as clubs and then they would have dancers on different nights of the week and they were starting then to get a lot of younger people coming in because it was a mother's mom's and dad's place to start with, which you wouldn't get a lot of teenagers going into. So then they would start to come into these places. So we built up a reputation of playing pop music, really. But a lot of 50s walking over, it was in there, and they were loving it. So cool. What a great story. I love hearing about and you ended up turning them on to rock and roll. And they ended up loving it. Yeah. And I thought to myself, if it's as long as it's presented properly, you know what I mean? As long as you go into their place rather than try to get those older people to come into a dancehall with a band playing all records being played, rock and roll records, they wouldn't be, they wouldn't, they wouldn't want to go and do that. But go to them with it. And present it in a way as long as you could do some ballads as well. As long as you can do stuff that they can understand, then you can do Johnny B good. What were the first performances you did once you were in London? What were those like? Well, it was, I was doing them mostly in a south wade, and then came and did the record contract. Got the records out. Then I was playing quite a lot of American bases. Because the Americans were still in Britain in the early 60s, air force bases, especially so we would go and play these places. So I became very popular in these American air force bases. When I asked it's not unusual. What even before that? Before I had a hit record, we would play them. And so I knew a lot of American songs, you see, which the GIs loved. So I was, you know, we sort of built up a bit of a repetition in these American servicemen's clubs. What was the first time you came to the United States? That was to do in that Sullivan show, a fantastic. In the early 65, it was amazing. It's not unusual, came out in January, the 22nd, 1965, and it was number one by March 1st. In Britain, and it was released in the states and he went to number ten on the 100 top 100. So then they booked me on The Ed Sullivan Show. And I became he liked me. So I think I did like 6 at Sullivan shows. Wow. Great. Yeah, in 65. And TV had gone to color, so they couldn't transmit in color from New York. So The Ed Sullivan Show had to go to Los Angeles to transmit in color. So then I went to LA. I met Elvis Presley. Wow. How was that? Tremendous. I mean, when I used to sing in these clubs in waves, right? And I would do Elvis Presley songs. Of course. And my friends used to say, wow, Tom, you sing that as good as Elvis Presley. I said, well, I'll tell him that. And they said, come on. Sure. You know. I said, I got a feeling that I'm going to meet out of his Presley. I had this feeling. Yeah. So when I went to paramount studios in LA to talk about a song for the movie, and they said, Elvis is here today, and he would like to meet you. Jesus, I mean, this was in September of 65. Wow. You know. And I said, my God, I didn't even know that he knew anything about me. So I went on to the set, and he was in a mock helicopter. He was doing this the trades fed, I think the movie was. With this little girl in his helicopter. And I'm standing in the back of the set, closed set in this hanger with the Memphis mafia. And they stopped filming any waves. So I'm like just standing there. And they said to be Elvis's waving at you. Oh, really? So I waved back and I had a song out at the time. It was my third single. It was a ballad called with these hands. And Elvis Presley come out of the helicopter and he's walking towards me singing with these hands. And I thought, my God, if the boys back home could see me now, you know, and he did it like Elvis Presley, you know, he pointed at me at the same time. You know what I mean? The way I choose to put his hand up, you know? And he's like, where's his hand? I will cling to you. And I thought, my God, here comes Elvis Presley, singing my song. It was like, it was surreal. Unbelievable. Unbelievable. It sounds like a dream what you're describing. A dream. It was like a dream. And he said to me, how the hell do you sing like that? Honestly. And I said, well, it's listening to people like you. He said, yeah, but I was brought up with it. You know, he said, I was going into black gospel churches as a boy. Do you have any black gospel churches in Wales? I said, no, the only black people are dealt in Cardiff in Tiger bay. But I said it's from the radio that I've heard this songs. And he couldn't believe that I sound like I sound coming from where I came from. Yes. Yes. Unless you were born there, you know, unless you were born that he couldn't understand it. Yeah, but in the same way he got to hear it by being there, you got to hear it by hearing it on the radio, but it was still, it was still coming through one way or another, the inspiration was there, and you were exposed to it, and you got to feel it. Yes, I knew the difference when I would hear Mahalia Jackson Singh. I would know the difference for the sound of her voice. So I was attracted to it. So just like Elvis was more attracted to black gospel churches as he was to wait. So you've got to be attracted to it in order to know what it is. And whether it's on the radio or whether it's life, you've got to go and think, well, what is that? Why is that sounding so wonderful and uplifting and unreal that they sound like they mean it when you came to the U.S. to do The Ed Sullivan Show would you also do live performances for audiences as well? I couldn't bring my band. You see, so that was a problem. So I had nobody to do shows with really. I remember the first time I met Little Richard was in 65 and I'd seen him do shows in England before. But I was in Los Angeles during The Ed Sullivan Show, so I said to my manager, I think I'll stay for a couple of weeks. You know, just to see what's happening in LA and so he said to me, well, look, your Visa has run out now. You only get a Visa for a week to do The Ed Sullivan Show. Now, if you're going to stay any longer than that, you're not on a visitor's Visa. You don't have your illegally in the country, right? So you said, for God's sake, don't get up in a club or something. And draw attention to yourself. So I said, okay, well, so I go to see Little Richard. He played in a club just off sunset. So I'm backstage with him and we shot in a way and it was great. And so he introduces me when he's on stage. How do you ask me to get up on the stage? And I wanted it because I knew every Little Richard song. So he said, come on, let's do this one. And I said, I can't. I can't do it, honestly. I would love to. And I still think of that now. To this day, I think my God, you know, why didn't I just do it? But I was so scared of immigration. Unlocking me up or something. But then I got him on my TV show, you see? Then we did it. Yeah. You know, when it really bad, you know, the millions of people could then see it. So I got my I got my wish at the end, but I would have loved to have just done that with him that night in 65. Where did you do your TV show from? From London, just north of London. Yeah, elsewhere studios. And which is funny where we do the voice from now. I'm a coach on the voice UK. And we do it from the same place. Fantastic. My God, after all this time. Because that was like 69 70, 71, but I did, this is Tom Jones. So it's still a pain in the ass to get there. On the road. But it's great that I'm still, I'm still doing it. You know, so I always think of that. I think if somebody had told me back then that I would be doing still going to the studios in elstree, and now it's a great feeling. It's a great I love it. It's so cool. If you're up for it, let's listen to my very favorite of your songs. Never gonna fall in love is my favorite of them all. Oh, thank you. And let's listen to that together and then can.

"The one that I was listening to there. Have you ever considered making a gospel album? Yeah, well, when I did praise and blame, you know, with Ethan Johns, we did, we did some ain't no grave gonna hold my buddy down. We did quite a few gospel songs. Then, but I've never actually recorded a whole album of gospel songs, which it could happen and the same thing with blues. Yeah. There's a lot of big bills. Stuff that I would love to I would love to do. There's a lot of possibilities. Yeah. It's always, as you know, where do I go from here? But you've got to have some kind of theme. You've got to have some kind of idea to link the stuff together as opposed to just going in there and recording a mishmash of material because I like so many different types of songs as well, you see. You know, I mean, I still love Frankie lane. You know, when Frankie lane came out, so I like those big sort of soulful ballads. Like, I believe. But then again, that's your gospel nature, as well, you see, in the early days in Wales, what was the music scene like? You were of rock and roll age. It's funny because the perception of you is not in the world of rock and roll. No, I know, I know. But as I was saying, recording those songs in my early recordings, it's not unusual. You know, and then what's your pussy at it? It sort of takes you that way. But my love has always been 50s walker born music before anything else. Jerry Lee Lewis is still Jerry Lee Lewis. Yeah. And I suppose age wise you were probably contemporary with The Beatles, no? Yeah, well, the same thing. You see, we were all The Beatles, the stones, Van Morrison, Joe Cocker, we were all listening to those early 50s walker road music. When anybody is asked, what was the first walk of world record? It's always rock around the clock from blackboard jungle from the movie. And everybody will tell you the same thing of our age. And then when I realized that I'd asked musicians about them later on that things were individually, which they had never done with a rhythm section before. That's where they sounded so hot. So, you know, I remember asking you about it. You know, I said, what do you think of rock or music? In a way, do you think it sounded so different? He said, because they spent more money on it. He said this all comes from rhythm and blues really. But those early black records that were being made, they didn't have the money to spend to make them sound like the records then that came later. Like when Little Richard then came on the scene, they were black records still, but they sounded much better than the earlier records you know that the black entertainers recorded. Living in Wales was it hard to hear this music? How did you get to hear it? Yeah, well on the radio, you see the BBC, they had to play everything. Because we didn't have any regional stations. We didn't have a gospel station or a country station. It was all the BBC. And then there was a station that came out of Germany called radio Luxembourg. That you could get if you had the right to write radio set, you could pick that up. And they played more blues gospel country than rock and roll. And when I heard something and I thought, what is that? Why is that different? Because, you know, I was born in 1940. So the big band music was still being played. And Frank Sinatra and those singers that sang with bands. They were big banners that were being so that was the music. I Vera Lynn, you know, in the war and after the war, those songs that veteran would sing. So they were the things that I heard, but then you get the occasional American R&B or blues record that would come on. Or gospel, and I knew it was different. And a lot of people, my age, we were being influenced by that, you know, when you heard it, you think, that's different. Why is that different? Why does that sound like that? Who is that? And you look into it then. What were the other big voices from your youth that you just felt like these are the voices that are inspiring? Well, Frankie lane was definitely one, and Billy Daniels, an old black magic, you know, when he sang all black magic, I get a kick out of you. That was different that he sang it different to what Frank sonata did. Billy eckstein, when he did, I get a kick. It was like, he meant that he was really getting the kick. With the wood. Oh, and Tennessee only Ford. When I first heard those boogie records, the Tennessee only four did catfish boogie and BlackBerry boogie and I think they were the beginning of that rock and roll sound. You know, that was being done because it was a heavily piano. I think it was a moon Mulligan was playing piano, I think, on those records. So they were definitely different, but they were boogie wreckage, you see. Were you a fan of any of the previous generation singers like the sinatras? That came before rock and roll as well or not so much. Not so much. Afterwards funnily enough, I learned to appreciate Sinatra when I got older. No, I wasn't. I wasn't a fan of that music. You know, rock and roll when rock and roll kicked in, it was like a breath of fresh air. You know, it was like, oh my God, you know, this is, this is tremendous. And the musicians, you know, and singers at the time hated it. The established singers, because they couldn't do it. Yeah. You know, and it's a strange thing because I was talking to musicians when I was in the 50s. I was working in a glove factory, making gloves. And all these glove cutters, these guys that were making the gloves by hand. They were musicians. Amateur musicians are playing in dance bands and everything. And rock and roll will come on the radio, and I would be with the ruler, you know, banging this desk, I had to work at to do one, two, three. So they said, what is that crap? And I said, what's the matter with you? It's tremendous. They were trying to get me to listen to other music. And I said, no, no. This is it. And they said, well, it's nothing. It's easy to do. Then I would go and watch them in these bands that they were playing in. And they would try and play, and they couldn't do it. They just could not do it. It's a strange thing. Elvis Presley used to talk about it when he first went on television to try and get those TV bands in America, like the Dorsey brothers when he went on there. They couldn't play it. Quincy Jones would tell him he said it wasn't happening. Yeah. And until he until he brought his rhythm section in, you know, so it's a strange thing. And boogie, you know, boogie music is the same. You know, a lot of piano players they don't think much of boogie woogie, but get them to play it. Yeah, it's a feel thing. It's like if you don't feel it, it's not, it's not about playing it right. It's about feeling it and the way you sing, even though you have essentially what feels like an operatic voice, there's a groove always when you're singing so I asked about the blues earlier, it's like, it feels like there's a grooviness always..

"In the mid 60s, when artists like The Beatles and Bob Dylan were starting a counterculture revolution, Tom Jones was getting his start singing old standards and 50s rock and roll at clubs around South Wales. Jones signed his first record deal in 64 and went on to release now timeless hits like it's not unusual and green green grass of home. With the soulful baritone and unique interpretation of American R&B and gospel, Jones became a mainstay at hip cabaret clubs in London, New York, and Vegas. It became commonplace for female fans to throw their underwear on stage during his performances. Of course, that later became a trope of the sex symbol crooner. On today's episode, Tom Jones shares stories with Rick from his remarkable career, including the first time he met Elvis on a movie set in Hollywood, and the night he turned down an invitation to join Little Richard on stage in LA out of fear he'd be deported. He also talks about why he thought Burt Bacharach's lyrics to what's new pussycat or a joke the first time he heard of. This is broken record. Liner notes for the digital age. I'm Justin richman. Here's Rick Rubin and Tom Jones. The last time I saw you was, I want to say 7 or 8 years ago in Las Vegas, backstage after you after you sang and that's right. It was beautiful night for me. I guess it was a regular night for you because that's what you do all the time. It was a long time ago though, it was longer than because I haven't been to Vegas no for about 12 years. Could it be that long? I can't believe it. Yeah. Amazing. I don't think I've done the Johnny Cash albums. At that time. Really? I must have. And you know, I know you haven't done the Neil Diamond one. Really? Is that true? Yeah, yeah, yeah. Because I remember when the Neil Diamond, I called him and said, how good I thought the album was? And it's quite a while after I saw you. Yeah, yeah, yeah. That was a good one. I like that one too. Yeah, I love that album. I think it's the best album he's ever done. Wow. That's incredible. Yeah. I love Tim since young, like you. You know, like same era of, I saw you guys both when I was a kid growing up on TV. And I got to see you perform when I was young, my parents brought me to see you at westbury music fair on Long Island. So I saw you, yeah, probably sometime in the 70s, I would imagine, would that make sense? Yep. But with Neil, you know, we started at the same time in the 60s. I remember meeting him in London in 65, you know, whenever I want to add, it's not unusual, and he was writing then for different people, you know? I think he had done something with Lulu. Yeah, he'd done a few things with British artists at the time. Tell me about the world of music was 1963 when you started? Yeah, when I went to London in 63, I recorded in 64. I did a song called chills and fever. Which was a sort of a rock and roll thing because in those days, Peter Sullivan, the guy that became my recording manager, he saw me singing in Dan souls and clubs in Wales, and I was doing basically 50s rock and roll. And so he thought that that would be the way to get me going, you know? Yeah, so he found this song called chills and fever, which was done by glad Ronnie love. I think his name was. He was an R&B record, you know, we sort of, we made it move into a rock and roll record. And I mean, it just, it sort of registered slightly, but nothing it was a hit in Australia. I remember that. So then we had to rethink, you know, and I was doing demos in London, Gordon mills was my manager and he was writing for Leeds music and so I used to do demos for different things. And then he wrote, it's not unusual. And I did the demo on it. It was the sandy shore, really. Who had some hit rackets at the time, and so what I heard it, I said, this is it. This sounds like a hit record to me. Yeah. And then Peter Sullivan said, well, if you're going to do it, you know, we got to pump it up. Because it was a milder song. You know, it's a sort of a Brazil 66 type feel to it. But I was basically 50s rock and roll music. That's what I lived really. Before that. But then you get strange with recordings, as I'm sure you know, but it sort of starts to lay a path. Because I did, it's not unusual with brass. People wanted the record company anyway, deck of records. What did more of the same? And then Bert bagger acted what's new pussycat for the Woody Allen film. And then I go again, you know, with a pump record. And I'm all the time I wanted to do like Wilson Pickett. I was into soul music by that time, but I could never get an original song if I was going to do a soul type thing. It would have to be covers. So what's the pussycat? Then we didn't know what to do after that. So then I did the green green grass of home. So it's always different things sort of pop up originally it was more 50s rock and roll for you. Yeah, oh yeah. When I was doing the clubs and pubs and dance halls in Wales where I come from South Wales, that's what I was doing. You know, it was Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley and Fats Domino Chuck Berry, Little Richard. They were the ones, you know. What I listened to, those records today still sound fantastic. Yeah, Little Richard records. It sounds like they're going to explode they're so exciting. To get away from those sometimes I'll try and listen to the radio. Nowadays, you know, which there's some decent stuff, but once I start to stop playing 50s, rock and roll music, I got a job to get away from it. As far as listening is concerned, I'm boogie records. You know, I love boogie woogie, you know, Pete Johnson and Albert hammonds and mead Lux Lewis, professor long hair, you know, those people, I love that kind of stuff. How about the blues? Has the blues been a part of your repertoire as well, listening? Yeah, well, when I was young, I was always listening to voices. The way people sounded, I think that's what it was. So when I hit Mahalia Jackson Singh, I thought, my God, you know, those gospel songs came to life. I mean, we were singing those songs in chapel in a Presbyterian chapel. Sam songs, you know, a lot of them were, but not like that. So that got me interested in black gospel music. And rhythm and blues. But mostly New Orleans type, you know, I loved Louis Armstrong. I loved that stuff that was coming out of New Orleans. The blues, as far as the blues were concerned, lead belly I had heard, but my favorite was always big Bill bronzy was always more musical to me than some of the other ones that came a little later like Muddy Waters, you know, and there was more of sort of electric blues that would big Bill Brunson. He was playing acoustic acoustic guitar. And finger style in a more than but very rhythmic, you know, he was very rhythmic within himself, just playing and singing. So as far as the blues was concerned, I would say big Bill Brunson was.

"Folks I'm having a fun and important conversation. I like all my conversations to be fun and important with Tom Jones. He's an extreme athlete marine veteran doing something right now that is amazing. He is running across most of the country a marathon a day to draw attention to the ideas of patriotism, faith, and specifically united we pledge dot org, building a replica of this American village that's in montevallo, Alabama. They want to do that in Utah, which is where he's going to end up. So Tom, I got to ask you, when you're running, at what pace do you run so that this is possible? Because I mean, I just really, again, can hardly imagine to go 26 miles in a day, and then to do it the next day and the next day, how do you, what have you settled into at this point that makes this possible for you? Is 26.2 miles a day and I can tell you one thing that was the last 6.2 miles, those are the ones that kick your butt. So what I've settled into is a piece of right around four to 5 miles an hour. I mean, it's just unbelievable to me that you are able to do this. And so you're doing this every day and you're about halfway from montevallo, Alabama to this place in Utah. So where does that put you now in Texas? Yeah, that puts me in Arlington, Texas, so we're approaching halfway through it. And so I think in two days, we'll have been at this 30 days. We're going to be doing 76 of them in a row. This time, you know, last time I did this, I did a 121 marathons in a row, but that was back in 2000. And my piece was much faster than it is now, although, you know, it's just a matter of being quit proof, man. It's a matter of being what? Quit proof. Quid proof. Plug for the website, quit proof, dot com. Well, I just love it. And what you said when we went to the break before that, who do you listen to the most of all in life yourself? That's a huge observation. What are you telling yourself? What are the thoughts that you're having? And it's so funny because the Bible is so clear on this. What does God say we are? God says we're infinitely valuable that he died for us. We're made in his image. When you believe that your first of all, you're believing truth, but also you're allowing yourself to be in tune with what is right. And true. But we have the freedom to say negative, destructive things to ourselves, just like we have the freedom to be destructive with our own with our physical health. And it's so interesting to me that you link this, that you link the two. Yeah. Well, and I can also tell you this. So I found out very early in my life that there's two roles, I believe that we can play in our lives. We can either play the role of the victim. Or we can play the role of the big door, right? And that is really what it boils down to. So what kind of dialog are you going to have with yourself? Are you going to have the victim mentality and tell yourself that, oh, because the circumstances, I couldn't do this. I couldn't do that. I couldn't do the other thing. Are you going to take the victorious role, the role of the Victor and say, you know what? We live in the greatest country on the planet and this country allows us to do anything that we want to do. All we got to do is roll our sleeves up and get to it. You know? And think the right kind of thoughts. Again, your thoughts become your actions, your actions become your habits. Your habits are what drives you through life. Do you have healthy habits? Do you have unhealthy habits? You know, be nice to yourself for goodness sake. Yeah. And I'll tell you what fascinates me, really, is like, you know that that works. You know that this is right. But there are people that they've got all these reasons not to do it. And to them, I would simply say, okay, whatever, but here's the issue. It is God's will for you to think those positive thoughts. It is God's will for you to have his opinion of you. Not your own opinion or the negative opinion of somebody who raised you or it is God's will that you hear what he has to say about you and that you agree with that. And I think if you don't believe in God, you could just say, well, I can do whatever I want. I can just destroy myself. But if you realize like, no, he wants to bless you. He wants you to be victorious. He wants to use you for his purposes. That's his will. And it's beautiful for me just to see you letting him use you for his purposes to bring attention to the greatness of this nation, it's the greatness to the great ideas of freedom and this kind of thing. If there's anybody who would have excuses, you would have excuses growing up in the foster system, abused. I mean, but you choose to believe what is true over those other voices. From your lips to God's ears. And I mean that because we are the divine creations of God, right? And that's what we are. We are part of God. And all we got to do is look in the mirror and we got to embrace that and we got to grab the wheel and we got to drive, right? The minds like this big D 9 dirt mover with a little guy on top, driving it. So, you know, what are you going to do? Let go of the wheel and let that thing run into the ditch. Are you going to keep both hands on the wheel of that incredible machine and drive it in the right direction? I just love it. So your website is quit proof dot com. Quit proof QU IT proof dot com. And united we pledge people can find out more at united we pledge dot org. Tom Jones, we are just proud of you and glad to get to know you. I'm glad my audience gets to know you. And we're just excited that you're doing all of this. Is absolutely wonderful. Look forward to having you back another time. Look forward to meeting you in person, maybe running with you sometime. God bless you. Tom Jones, thank you so much. Yeah, and thank you, Eric, for having me on because this is a team thing, right? Because without people like you, the word can't get out. So I consider a you and I to be a team. And I'm really, really proud to know you and be part of your team. And I can't thank you and your listeners enough. And we're raising money to build this American village, so if they go on United, we pledge dot org, consider making a donation to make this place happen because I tell you one thing, freedom, matters. God bless you, thank you..

The Biden administration has caused a financial crisis and they have no clue how to fix it. Oil prices have skyrocketed and when oil prices go up, the cost of transportation and shipping spikes leading the prices of goods to rise.

'United We Pledge' Is Recreating an American Village in Alabama

"Now, I want to ask you, so you're saying that united we pledge already has something called the American village in montevallo, Alabama, because I had not heard about this till today. No, no, what I'm saying is that Montebello Alabama is an American village. And the united we pledge has partnered with a company called balance of nature and they've procured about 40 acres of land in Utah that they're going to recreate an American village there. That's what I'm saying. So there is an American village in Alabama already. Yes. But I had not heard about this. I want to go to montevallo, Alabama now that I've literally not heard about this. And you should. I hadn't heard about it either until they brought it up, and then when they brought it up to me and they came up with this idea of me running from Montevideo Alabama to saint George, you don't have to break around for this thing. You know, I think that we have a whole mind body, right? You have your gut, you have your heart, you have your head, and all three have brain cells. My gut just goes, go for it. My heart was like, oh, you gotta do this. You know? And then my mind just said, yeah, it's a resounding yes. This is the right time, the right place, and the right thing. So then when I visited montevallo, Alabama and saw with my own two eyes, the impact that this American village had with these kids, it was just like, oh man, let's get going.

"Dot com, go there. Folks. I'm talking to Tom Jones, not the singer. The non singer, the runner, the extreme athlete, the patriot, the marine veteran, Tom Jones. Tom Jones, you are passionate about America. And I want to ask you about that about faith about patriotism. Because what you're doing right now, running literally from Alabama to Utah to draw attention to united, we pledge, it comes out of a love of country, faith, values. When did that become important to you? You talked about growing up in a painful, painful, foster care system, whatever you eventually get involved in the marines. When did these issues? Because a lot of people would just, they would hate America, they would hate life. God has really really found you and is able to use you. When did that happen? You know, I would tell you this, Eric, if they hate America, then they should get on a plane and take a trip anywhere. You know, when I was deployed in the Marine Corps, I was deployed all over the world. And all of the places that I went and was deployed to didn't have the freedoms that we have and all of the things that we enjoy. And I think it's human nature that when things are given to you free, you tend to devalue them. And you tend to put value on all of the things that you can buy that can be replaced. And the thing that's so ironic is the things that you can buy can be replaced very easily. But the things that your gifted and when you're born into this country, you're gifted freedom, you're gifted freedom of speech. You're gifted to be able to vote. And all of these things. So all these countries that I visited didn't have these freedoms, and I can tell you one thing, every single time I was deployed, Eric, when I got back to the United States of America, the first step I took on the soil of the United States of America without fail. I dropped down and I kissed that ground every single time because I saw firsthand what it meant to not have these freedoms that so many people take for granted. And then when in 2009, I went on mixed martial arts superstar tour and I went to Iraq and other places in the Middle East. And I can tell you one thing, that was an incredible eye opener. When you get back to this country, if you don't appreciate it, I think you ought to go and seek some help. I got to tell you, it's just a joy to hear you say these things. And it's what I often say. And we get our perspectives in different ways. I mean, part of the reason I appreciate this country is because my parents grew up in parts of the world where they did not have this. My mother was in East Germany, communist East Germany. My father was in Greece during the war, the communists tried to take over. So when they had the privilege to come to the United States of America, they understood this is we don't deserve this. This is an honor. We get to do this. We get to raise our kids as Americans. So my brother and I were raised to know that this is not normal. What we have here is not normal. This is a gift from God. It's a blessing. We need to cherish it. We need to celebrate it. We need to teach our kids and anyone we can, what it is and why it's beautiful and why we need to spread it around. And you're sharing what you're doing with united, we pledge. I've not heard of them before. So this is a big deal that the way they want to do this and you're obviously helping them trying to draw attention to this. They want to create the American village. Is that what they call it? In Alabama. Yeah, it's in Utah that they're going to, they're going to actually build a duplicate American village in Utah. And when you say the attention, Eric, that's the reason that I do these things because the attention is the bridge between one human mind and another. Without the attention, you don't have that bridge. So the reason that I started doing these things in 1998 was to get people's attention. And that would create a bridge between mines. And then I could deliver whatever message that I was delivering. And the message I'm delivering now is that freedom matters. And it's special. This experiment, a United States of America is the greatest experiment in the history of humankind. That's huge. And it doesn't exist anywhere else. Is the United States of America perfect? No. Are there people flooding into here? Because it's racist to the core and there's no opportunity. I think not. You know, they get it. And I think that what I'm doing really is an effort to reignite patriotism in this country and in particular in the youth. Well, it's a beautiful thing. It thrills me that using you're using your platform and the talents, God has really blessed you to be able to do this. And it is beautiful..

"Goes. Now if people want to find out more about united, we pledge is there a website for united we pledge? Yes, it's united we pledge dot org dot org. Okay, so you are doing what you're doing to help them reach their goal. And by the way, the site of the place you describing is montevallo, Alabama, it is. Yes. So is that where is that where you started this journey? That is. And I'm winding up in hurricane saint George, Utah, where they're breaking ground to build an exact replica of this place on the West Coast. So they're starting development of that on July 2nd when I when I come into town there, we're going to break ground there and they're going to build an exact replica of that on the West Coast so that people on the West Coast have the opportunity to have that same experience. Look, this is exciting stuff. I want to talk to you about running and I want to talk to you about America. And I figure I'm safe on both topics with you. But before we get to that, people want to know how did Tom Jones get to be Tom Jones doing this kind of a thing right now. What is your story that led you to where you are today? Where did you grow up? When did these things become central in your life? Well, that's a great question and just kind of make it real quick. So my childhood was a dumpster fire. I was removed from my home when I was 12 years old for child abuse. I was put into a foster care institution that was run by pedophiles. I was only afforded a 6th grade education until I ran away from that institution and joined the United States Marine Corps. They were a great parents. They taught me right from wrong. They taught me about integrity, Esprit de corps, all my clothes matched. It was a good thing. And I ended up being a world champion price fighter. And I had the opportunity to train with Chuck Norris and other people like that. They were really great influences on my life, and then in 1998, I went to a foster care facility in my area that wanted a playground. And they couldn't afford it. So I came up with a wild idea of running from Oregon to Mexico on foot, raising money and helping them have a playground. And when we dedicated that playground, all of a sudden, my life had meaning. I knew what I was here for. And since 1998, I've been lending my athletic abilities to worthwhile causes like this one. I love it. I mean, I really love it. When did you get into what you call extreme athletics? Because, you know, anybody can run ten miles. Most people can do a marathon. But this is a dramatic uptick when we're talking on the levels of athleticism and endurance. I mean, for you to run a marathon a day, 26.2 miles a day, I mean, what does it take to get your body to a point where you can do that? Most people are in a marathon, and then they got to take three weeks off. How long have you been involved in this stuff? So it's a culmination of a lifetime of work, right? So this isn't something that you can just kind of go out and train for. So my entire life, I've been a professional athlete. And I got into it because I wanted to empower people that had been in situation that was similar to mine as a foster kid to do whatever they wanted to with their life because we live in a country that actually allows you to do that. And I wanted to share my story with them and empower them to be more and to empower them to follow their dreams just like I am right now. I mean, I find myself in 1998. I started this stuff, and I've set several world records running. I've set the world record on stand up paddle board when I paddle boarded from Oregon and Mexico, then I broke that paddle board record when I travel from Key West to New York. World records, this is very impressive. If I had a world record, I would say it very slowly, so people could take this in. You paddle boarded from where to where? I paddle boarded from Oregon to Mexico in 2007. What am I missing? Hold on a second. How do you paddleboard? From Oregon to Mexico. This is very tough for me to take this in. So I have a motor home that I use as base camp. And I shuttled with wave runners every day to launch point, and then we GPS, wherever we left off, and we keep paddling, and then we'd leapfrog that motor home and keep doing it over and over again until we got to the Mexican border. And then in 2010, I broke that world record when I paddled from Key West Florida to New York City. I really can't believe this. This is mind-blowing stuff. Paddle, look, it's one thing to run. I'm a runner. Upper body stuff, I can't believe how far can you travel on a paddleboard in a day. I just can't believe this stuff. Well, when I went from Key West to New York, I averaged 18 miles a day, but when I set the flat water world record on a Lake, Smith mountain Lake in Virginia, I paddled 30 miles a day, and I paddled that 540 miles of shoreline, I believe it was 16 days. So when you were, I just want to get this not that I'm going to do this. I don't really need the details. This is just for the storytelling here. But when you're paddle boarding from Florida to New York, you're doing this on ocean water. Absolutely. I'm doing it in the ocean water, and I can tell you when I went from Oregon to Mexico, I saw a great white shark's most every single day until I got to point conception, which is three quarters of the way down the state. And when I went into the ocean at the Oregon California border, I thought it was the alpha person in the water until I saw my first 17 foot great white shark about 6 feet away from me and then I realized I'm basically fish food. I think once word gets out in the great white shark population, they will be afraid of you. They just, they're not yet familiar with what you've accomplished. But this is so exciting. Now, so right now you're in the middle of this journey going from Alabama to Utah. You are running. So this is on foot across most of the country, 26 miles a day. We're going to be right back, folks. We're talking to Tom Jones. The website for united we pledge is united we pledge dot org and Tom's website is quit proof dot com QU IT PRO F dot com will be right back with Tom Jones. She's a rain no one she's a lady talking about that little lady and the lady is mine tell me Eric, why is relief factor so successful at lowering or eliminating pain? I'm often asked that question, the owners of relief factor tell me they believe our bodies were designed to heal. That's right, designed to heal, and I agree with them. So the doctors who formulated relief factor for them selected the four best ingredients, yes, 100% drug free ingredients, each helps your body deal with inflammation. Each of before ingredients deals with inflammation from a different metabolic pathway, and that right there approaching from four different angles may be why so many people find such wonderful relief. So if you've got back pain, shoulder neck hip knee or foot pain from exercise or just getting older, you should order the three week quick start discounted to only 1995 to see if it will work for.

The united we pledge is a nonprofit organization and what they're doing is they're building a very special and magical place called the American village. And the American village is a place that has recreations exact replica recreations of buildings that were instrumental in the constitution and the Revolutionary War. And they also have people that play the parts of people that were instrumental in that time, like George Washington, Ben Franklin, Paul Revere, Paul Revere's wife, men and women, they have colonial soldiers. And what they do is they bring in families and in particular kids, and they let them step onto the stage of American history and become part of the story. So it's a very, very impactful experience as far as history goes.

How AJ's Mother Got Him Hooked on Gossip

"When I was a little boy, my mother never read me children's books. She read me the gossip pages from the four dailies. We had delivered to our home. And as she licked her thing is through the pages of the New York Post, the daily news, the Long Island press, and newsday, she exposed me to a world that I knew I had to be a part of. Now, what could a little boy possibly have in common with Andy Warhol, Liza Minnelli, Tom Jones, or Cher? Well, apparently everything. To me, those big names in bold print who were always in the news weren't people as much as they were invitations into a world. I knew I had to live in, or at least visit from time to time. So before I bolted out of the house to play with my friends in the schoolyard, I would sit at the kitchen table with my mother as she read out loud the papers gossip columns to me. Cindy Adams Liz Smith, wrote a Barrett. I love to hear where movie star spent their summers. What films they were making, where they ate, and who they were in love with. And of course, some of the gossip artists would have just fallen flat. Had it not been for the comical side of my father who would sprinkle in some jokes now and then. You know, a simple mention from my mother about, say, Joe DiMaggio would turn into a detailed screed that my father would deliver from across the room. He'd say, he was the greatest ballplayer in the world, ruined by a Hollywood whore. And as soon as my mother took the side of mala Monroe, he digging deeper. Look, the guy goes to surprise his wife with roses on a movie set one day. He gets there. He gets there and sees 5000 people staring at her panties while they're blowing wind up her ass from under a subway grating for half an hour. And that was that, three weeks later, he filed for divorce, and he was never the same man. Is that true, man? Unfortunately, yes, on this set of the 7 year rich. Yeah, she had literally all right, my father would say. And everybody scratched it. Mickey Rooney, you will bring a Tony Curtis brandel Monty cliff uncle mill to even Ruby Rose is scratched that itch. It was my mother who made me crazy about gossip. Without her, there's no gossip column. There's no book. There's no podcast, no nothing. Who knows right?

How Did White House Press Briefings Go From Daily to Done?

"Brain. GRAINSTUFF Lauren Bogle bomb here in January of Twenty Twenty bestselling novelist Stephen King and Don winslow took to twitter to make a surprising pledge. They offered to donate two hundred thousand dollars to charity. If Stephanie Grisham the Press Secretary for President Donald Trump agreed to take questions from the full White House. Press Corps for one hour. You're in the White House. Press briefing room. The offer reportedly was rejected by Grisham. WHO's since taking the job in June of two thousand nineteen has yet to hold even one former former White House press briefing? Her views expressed an interview with these sinclair. Broadcast Group is that the briefings are unnecessary because reporters get opportunities to put questions to trump himself sometimes over the roar of the presidential helicopter on the White House lawn for the time being at least the trump administration has abandoned what had been in an important part of White House. Press Corps is routine dating back to the late eighteen hundreds before the official position of White House. Press Secretary even existed. That's when President William McKinley. Kenley set up a workspace in the White House for reporters and sent his first personal secretary. John Addison Porter to give the correspondence what the White House Historical Association notes. where I'm I more or less regular briefings? The White House press briefing gradually evolved into a formal event from the time of president. Herbert Hoover in the late nineteen twenties and early thirties. He's to Linden Johnson's tenure in the mid to late sixties White House press secretary's held twice a day briefing sessions in their own offices according to Martha Joint Kumar Book managing the president's message the White House Communications Operation Richard Nixon though no fan of the press still thought the briefings were important enough that he had a swimming pool torn out so that he could convert the space into a meeting room for briefings. That area is now known as the James S. Brady press briefing room in honor of president. Ronald Reagan's press secretary who was seriously wounded during the attempt. On Reagan's life in Nineteen eighty-one during Bill Clinton's time in the White House in the nineteen nineties. Press Secretary Mike. McCurry decided to allow the daily press briefings to be televised that practice continued until the trump white house began barring cameras from briefings in two thousand seventeen before discontinuing them altogether. Oh we spoke by email but former C. N. N. White House correspondent Dan Lowthian who spent five years covering the Bush and Obama administrations. He said I think the briefings were useful full for a number of reasons. First of all it was an opportunity to get the White House response or thinking on an issue on camera rather than a written statement it allowed us to gang up on them around a question they might have been trying to avoid showing them dodge. An answer is sometimes the news briefings also put statements on the record for later. Comparison finally finally every now and then there would be breaking news and as happened after Osama bin Laden was caught lots of great details even if some turned out not to be true. Lowthian Dan who went on to found little park media and to become a visiting scholar at the School of Journalism at Northeastern University recalls that the format for the briefings was fairly constant. He said there was a certain order to who got called on briefings always started with the Associated Press and ended with a thank you from the Associated Press once in a while the press secretary would mix it up a bit but it usually happened around the same time each day and questions from the first two rows came in order. We also spoke by email with Tom. Tom Jones a senior media writer for the POYNTER Institute. A journalism education organization. He said while it's true that the president and his representatives often make themselves available bowl in informal settings such as the White House lawn. It's not the same as press. Briefings the format of shouting out questions under the sound of a whirling helicopter is not conducive to asking complicated policy questions nor pertinent. Follow up questions. The frenzied free for all of these much too brief informal interviews make it much harder to get into the topics. What's that require nuance and specifics? It's so much easier for the president to brush aside or ignore questions. He doesn't like when he's walking along the White House grounds when he or one of his representatives representatives are standing behind a podium a controlled setting they must face the questions that require long substantive answers as opposed to the one or two short sentences that suffice in those informal formal settings let view essentially is shared by a group of thirteen former White House press secretary and Foreign Service and military officials who published an opinion in peace on. CNN's website in January of twenty twenty calling for trump to restore the regular briefings in their view. Having to prepare for briefings helps the government to run better letter. They wrote the sharing of information known. As official guidance among government officials and agencies helps ensure that an administration speaks with one voice telling one story however compelling it might be Lowthian also sees the apparent end the briefings as unfortunate. He said it's a valid criticism that some reporters others use briefings to showboat. However I think when covering the White House briefings aren't important function that allow the public and reporters to maintain daily connections? Sometimes it's routine information other times. An odd question from the back of the room can turn into the story of the day even so Lowthian says journalists who cover the the administration will find a way to get stories he said this new normal might be unfortunate but not paralyzing. Reporters are in the business of getting information whether it comes from the mouth of his spokesperson or sources all across the beltway.

Lawsuits against Fortnite bring questions about the copyright of dances

"The lawsuit between pub g an EPA games. That's not the only legal headache. Epoch has had to endure. Thanks to this runaway. Success a fortnight one of those things that you can purchase in the game would be an Email or an action that you can choose your character to make based on a keystroke. So you might have emotes that are like a particular pose. But in fortnight, the emotes that are really famous are the various dances epic has created animations of numerous dances, some of which were already famous. Memes and therein lies the problem. Well, one of the problems the other problem is that there's some really Letitia folks out there who are hoping for a meal ticket. I think but there's fault on all sides. I would argue so one of the dances you can purchase. At least at one time was called fresh which was a nod to the source of this dance, the television show fresh prince of Bel-Air in that show. Alfonso Ribeiro who played the character Carlton did an iconic dance to Tom Jones's song. It's not unusual for night didn't lift the song. But it did lift the dance. And I'll Fonda has filed a lawsuit against the company claiming they're capitalizing on his celebrity and didn't give him any credit or compensation actor Donald phase on pointed to another instance in which epic games had included animation. That copied a dance he did in the television series, scrubs. Terrence two million Ferguson filed a lawsuit against epic games for. Using his Milly rock dance, Anita red acting on behalf of Russell backpack. Kid Horning filed a lawsuit because of the game using the floss dancing move, which Horning had made famous in an airing of Saturday night. Live Katy Perry was playing a song. And she threw a whole lot of focused toward Horning who then did the flaw stance. It went totally viral and became a huge Meemaw of itself. But here's the thing. He didn't invent that dance. You can just do a quick search on YouTube, and you will find there are lots of videos that well predate that Saturday Night Live performance one going all the way back to two thousand ten of people doing that dance. So my guess is that particular lawsuit won't go very far. Ultimately once they're able to show that this kid didn't create that dance. And that while that that particular Saturday Night Live episode might have elevated everyone's awareness of the flaw. Us. It. It's not like that kid has any claim to ownership of the dance. The cases, however, bring up a question can a dance become be righted. Can you copy write dance moves
