How Does the Filibuster Work in the Senate?

"So I want to start with the filibuster. I have a general understanding of the filibuster, but can you explain to the audience exactly what the filibuster is in a nuance surrounding that? Sure. And my knowledge of this in my experience comes from I worked for 15 years in the U.S. Senate and that's where this issue is located. And it has to do with the feature of how the Senate considers legislation. The founders of our country designed the two houses of Congress to be different, the house has only short two year terms, the Senate has 6 year terms. And there's various differences. But they design them differently and to approach legislation differently because when they're each doing their own thing and then they have to agree on one piece of legislation for the whole country, it's more likely to be better legislation and it's more likely to be bipartisan. So in the Senate, they have a rule that requires before the Senate can vote on a bill, they have to vote to end debate on the bill.

Accountability Is the Cure for Society's Ills

"It's still in my heart to continue down this path. Of accountability, with everything, all of our ailments and troubles in society and I'm going to get to college in, so y'all just hold on. All of the ailments of our society are rooted in personal responsibility. When you lack personal responsibility, then we can't work with you. You're not going to be successful. Even the thug he thug thug amongst us, amongst us that do well, they don't tell you that they changed. And that they are holding themselves accountable, and then they just rapping rapping to y'all about thugging. Rick Ross, have you seen Rick Ross house? Rick Ross is on an estate. He don't live in a house. He lives on an estate. I think that House is like his estate is acreage. His house is probably like 20,000 ft². He rapping to you about thugging and all this other stuff. He sometimes he do have some positive things to say when he's in the interviews. But man, he talking all that. I'm selling dope. Doing all this other stuff and he living in a probably got an arm security around his house.

Woman Killed While Pushing Stroller With Baby

"But why is it that every time these situations happen, they go and burn down a community and protest? But then in that same community, a black man can be murdered by another black man or a black woman can be murdered by, for instance, I think this is in New York, young lady pushing a stroller down the street, got into a confrontation with a baby daddy, and he smoked her. I believe in broad daylight. Where's the protest? Where's the crying and screaming and burning down the community over the death of the innocent young woman? Who was pushing her baby in a stroller? Oh, yeah, Elliot don't matter. Oh, I forgot. It wasn't police officers. And he wasn't a thug. And she wasn't a thug. But this kid supposedly got pulled over at 1230 a.m.. That's in the middle of the night. What justification do you have for fleeing police? What justification?

Akron Police Officers Fatally Shoot Jayland Walker

"But let's start with this shooting that happened in Akron, Ohio, you guys probably haven't heard of it yet, but you will hear of it soon because it's involved in a black man and white police officers. And celebrities are coming out. And I call them celebrities. They really not worth a hill of beans. But for whatever reason they're considered to be celebrities because they push this agenda that America is a racist place and black people should be afraid of white people every day they wake up in the morning, especially white police officers. Young man, Jalen walker. Keep that name in your mind. Jaylen walker, the fake black man, Sean king, who he's a white man. He's not a black man. I don't know why black people are giving him any credence of credit and him talking on black issues is absolutely as anonymity when they bash every other white person, but they don't bash on king just 'cause he got an edge up in a taper fade. Don't make you a black man. Now, I want to reach you what he said, and then we're going to read the facts surrounding this case. I'm going to reach you what he said, read the facts. And I don't know how on God's green earth, Sean king has been sued. In some form of a class action lawsuit, because all he do is peddle lies to create controversy and hatred in our country against police, literally I could argue that Sean king is literally getting black men murdered almost every other weekend by police officers.

Let's talk about the fact that this let's talk about rhinos, conservatives, and the American people. Because you got 14 senators who want to curtail Second Amendment rights, put in Second Amendment, anti red flag laws, and they have the letter R behind their name. And at the same time, you've got clowns Thomas and a 6 judge justice majority in the Supreme Court bring down this decision about New York, your reaction to all of this. Are we winning? Are we losing are the rhino still in control? Well, this is a big win for the Second Amendment for the people for our constitutional rights. Thanks to president Trump for, again, fulfilling his promises. And for putting in constitutional justices, I just can't thank president Trump enough for that. But the battle will never end. I heard someone say the other day that evil never retreats on its own. Only when it's confronted by a more powerful force. And I have to say that one thing the Democrats have gotten used to is Republicans that don't fight if they do fight it's on the defense.

It's also because of the corruption and the cowardice of the rhino establishment, which continues to stab the American people in the back. Stabbed him in the back on election integrity. He stabbed him in the back on spending with Joe Biden's $1.2 trillion Green New Deal. Just stabbed the American people in the back on their gun rights as well on supporting the Second Amendment.

It should be the head of the Department of Homeland insecurity, correct? Absolutely, because under his leadership, this country is less safe, less secure. Yeah. And in the last 16 months, it has just been an escalation in terms of open borders, giving illegal immigrants, safe passage. Is there anything one action that they've done that actually improves the situation on the border, Tom? No. No, and we got the first secretary of Homeland Security. I've ever seen this complicit in cross border crime. Look, everything he has done. He's been in power 1617 months. And now we keep climbing and climbing and climbing. He tells the Senate during a sitting here, but we got a plan, the plan is coming together. Unless his plan is open borders, which he's proven, that's what it really is. He has no enforcement plan. He has done a single thing to slow the flow. And look, we sued him, said we sued him to put title 42 back in place, and we won. We sued him and I say we because I actually filed after David. I know. And we assumed the title of 42, we suited for remaining Mexico. We won both a federal court said you must reinstate both.

Trump's Legacy Is the Overturning of Roe v. Wade

"Welcome back. Welcome back. Welcome back, ladies and gentlemen. Gentlemen and lady shout out. Oh, let me clarify this real quick. Because you know I've been talking about roe V wade and all this stuff, but you know who I didn't give credit to? I almost feel like I should be ashamed of myself. I didn't give credit to Donald Trump. Do you realize that Donald Trump when he was in when he was in power when he was the president of the United States of America, he got us, I don't know how many two or three Supreme Court conservative Supreme Court Justices, Conor berry, Kavanaugh, and Gorsuch, am I saying, is that right? I think those are the three Supreme Court Justices who are conservative. So he did a pretty good job putting these conservatives in place to navigate this. I think a lot of people are missing out on giving Trump some credit because I don't care if you like him or not. If you believe this was a victory, there's no way this would have happened if he had been able to put in that many Supreme Court Justices. Now, you know, I'm hoping that we can get more of them in there. With the whole course was conservative. The whole court was conservative. Maybe minus one person that'll be our life will turn around quickly.

Is the Economy More Important Than Abortion and Gay Marriage?

"Now my guy Nick that does my videos, he's in the background, and he's saying that the economy is more important than people worrying about abortions. AKA genocide, a poll was done, and this article came from breitbart, it says that a poll was done. It was about a thousand respondents and you know how I think about polls. I don't know if there's a thousand responders or impartial in the first place. However, this poll was done in 66.2% of the respondents said that the economy is more important than abortion rights. I did a survey on my YouTube channel of close to 2 million people and what was the numbers 92% said that the economy is more important than abortion rights. Now, 99% of the people that follow me probably are conservative or at least conservative leaning. So my polls are biased and it's probably going to be about a 100,000 people that participate in that poll, but like I said, it's biased. Now the question for you, ladies and gentlemen, gentlemen, ladies, is if clarence Thomas and the Supreme Court Justice overrule the protections quote unquote of gay marriage, meaning that the states will begin to make the decision of whether or not gay marriage is acceptable. Do you think that the numbers will be just as important or just as staggering, meaning that more people would care and vote based on the economy than vote based on gay marriage?

How Joe Biden Is Failing to Secure Our Borders

"Can you explain the Dire Straits that we are in? I would say our, I can't think of the name of it, but the risk factor of this many people coming into our border are coming through our border. Can you explain that to the audience here? Well, let's figure out the numbers first. Since Joe Biden became president. We had 2.9 million people. Cross our border, we're encountered by the barbershop. 2.9 million since he's been president. You add to that over 800,000 gallons. Now, what's the got away? These are people that are captured on camera, drone, or central traffic, recorded, but the board toolkit respond because up to 70% of the border patrol is no longer on the line. During facilities, processing aliens, making baby formula and changing diapers. So you take the 2.9 that were encountered, add the 800,000 to that, that's 3.7 million in a year and a half of Joe Biden president.

It's on lots of different platforms it's on like Apple TV and all this stuff, but probably the best place to get Amazon. You can get the DVD on Amazon. If you go to manifold productions dot com, which is Michael tax company, they'll have the listing of all the platform it's available on. So the easiest place is how the Amazon.com, but it's a great movie. It's two hours long. It's just really powerful and tax plans. The book just came out this week and it's available on Amazon. It's in Barnes and nobles. It's all bookstores. And again, it's based on that movie, but it's from the 25 hours of interviews that Michael pack did with clarence Thomas. And it's really just an amazing insight into his life. Great stuff like remember the movie as a song smiling faces from the 70s. So Claire Thomas is smiling faces. People smile in your face and they want to do you harm. That's what he calls liberals the northeastern liberals who wanted to savage him and sort of act nice, but then from behind. And he says, he's thinking about that song when he was testifying and watching those liberals coming after him. So it's those sorts of things that are these great we've talked about big issues and kind of neat issues like that. The books that had impact on his life like invisible man by Ralph Ellison, native son, Richard Wright, the fountainhead by Ayn Rand. So it's just barbershop with the movie he loved because it reminded him of going to the barbershop with his grandfather. He talks about the barbershop down in Savannah 1955. And it's just a wonderful captures justice Thomas's life in a really good way.

"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.

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..

"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.

"Are their memories. That i would have to pretend to the whole thing with a memory said you you remember it and the you hold onto it over time i would be like reconstituting things that clearly did happen at a point and trying to claim them as memories and it just. I don't have an honest Connection to these things they might as well happen to somebody else. And that's how so much of That's so much of childhood stuff is. I would just be like see pictures. It'd be like oh okay. I guess we went to lake house or whatever you'll see these things is i don't remember any of it but it clearly happened but or once in a while i'll just get this like ghost of a thing and but there's nothing to hold onto but there's just like a whisper of a memory and just but there's nothing concrete about any of it and that's like at at best teachers in school. It's like you could if you could name teachers from school right. You like grade. School teachers names other students are now miss mclaughlin. I standing i. It's just those are a struggle for me. Those are gone. And i could pull them back together and i could study them. I would just be regurgitating facts. But they're not actual memories. Yeah it's a funny book too. I just need say it's mostly funny. It really has funny stories in it. I promise you it's a good time. Were you scared to write the book. Not just because you were turned in order to do it. You would have to talk about things that you not really talked about publicly but also because it would mean having to spend a lifetime directly engaging absence of your memory. Oh yeah all of that. The memory part was it's embarrassing. It's there's a. There's an embarrassment comes with having things that everybody has that not having them. There's something weird about it and it's and then if it feels odd then it feels weird then it feels embarrassing then it feels like shame and then it feels like guilt the range of emotions it just turns and then eventually it would. I would turn it on myself somehow. And it's somehow it's a bad thing i did. And that's what it felt like. It's like there's a part of my life. That was a bad thing. So i'd rather just run from. I'd rather just move past a why do i. It happened to me once. Why does it have to keep. Why do i have to keep the sing alive. Let me just move past it. Let me get let me just live a normal life like everybody else in and do things and enjoy things rather than beat this drum of of the thing that happened to me and the things that happened. Just i'd rather not do that. I just would rather take a stab at at Being like everybody else second person in your book you don't address the reader directly or tell the reader what to do very much At the end the book you do allow yourself a couple paragraphs of saying i went through these things. I survived them in. Came out the other side. You say pretty plainly and you say that you can Put down what you're carrying and keep walking. It reinforced my wondering which was to. What extent is time trying to talk himself into this. To what extent is tom giving himself advice that he's allowed to put down the baggage and keep walking. Oh the whole book is me talking to myself. The whole but i didn't want to write a book. I never set out to write a book about writing a book but it kind of not in not in a meta way. The concept of medicine for me turned sour a while ago and it just it feels like i don't know i'm just i feel as wanna choose the the opposite of that now so it kind of evolved into the sing worth like the act of me being ready to tell. The story is the story of the book. And when i got to the end of it. I could kind of. Yeah kind of like an unburden. A little bit and just be like it. Just kinda is and I'm allowed to. I'm allowed to accept my own advice. Tom i have one last question for you. Which is that. You have asserted that c. Three po the gold robot from star wars worst character in all fiction. Yeah that's what. What is your justification for that to knowing unfunny He does nothing to help any of the stories. he's a new sense. He lifts his his pettiness. Truly take them off course. It's a miracle that the death star got destroyed with that a mess and everything up. Thank god his pal or two d. Two could you imagine if things are two d- to saying if we get translator on that he's probably just saying we show the like like real is just like i mean this guy gonna shut up. That's an rtd to saying the whole time. I mean it says a whole lot that the best to characters and star wars are a giant chimpanzee or whatever he is a robot. That goes bleep. Bloop only one.

"Suddenly gets their power. Usually things like that are not as cut and dried as that suddenly like. This is my thing. And i am doing great at it right away. I know this is for me. And in retrospect i guess it makes sense when you think of The way people talk getting on stage when they say like as soon as i got up there i knew i was born to live on a stage and i knew i was definitely not born to live on a stage that i learned that Very quickly. but i did. Feel in the microphones like yeah. This is it. this is my this is my place and it really was special. And i didn't wanna stop doing it when you're being funny behind a microphone is very unusual circumstance. It is one of the only situations where you are performing funniness without feedback O it's and getting kind of that felt like something. There was like a taming of the silence in a way where it was like. You could say the funniest thing you've ever said in your life and the response you get is pure silence. It's and it. I've seen people come on the best show. Just the funniest people and this is before. Like a pre pre podcasts era. There was still a novelty for most people getting in front of a microphone and if they were ever on the radio they were on for ten minutes on a promotional thing on a mainstream station and they never really would settle down or do a a longer form conversation or longer form comedy and i would see those people just get like rattled by it and then they kinda press. Because it's just like. I got maybe to get this little this laughter. I need to just start. I gotta start steamrolling. People and i gotta go faster and just get and it's like no you actually have to kind of just kind of le- let it just happen and it's just it's really there's just this sense of the silence is so scary at first but then when i got a hold of it it was my favorite part of the show on my favorite part of the show still is kind of just riding silence in in the middle of conversation. If i'm if i'm or just a monologue arrived on caller. I'm just talking. I love just letting them. Silence to sit there and it spooks people. But it's like no. That's my friend. The silence is my friend and silence can be your friend too if you just trust the silence. It's not a silent isn't necessarily bad but it's scary. You know what that's like those first moments when you say something and then it's just like i got nothing back like nothing. Because because the people who get thrown the most worst stage performers they were used to just immediate response. I said a funny thing here laughter and then they in their mind. They're just like oh. No i'm bombing. It's like no you're not. There's just nobody here to laugh. He's got to trust somebody out. There thinks it's funny. We've got so much more with tom.

And we pitch them. As name's tom. Kubeck leading authority on small arms and weapons storage. We think we can solve your problem. We made the damn thing. there was. There was no experts. We just claimed it and we got the contract. Spent two years touring their armories interviewing it. Their arms really spend close time watching these guys work And it was during that time that we came up with the cradle grid. Weapons storage concept. I use the term. At the time home depot development we literally went to home depot. And said how do we store stuff. I wanted a system that was compatible with these guys. The operators could solve problems down range. They could source. Materials would work in their armory without having to be proprietary. You know most of the guys in my industry want proprietor. They want them. Everything you buy has to come from me.

I think it's it's very smart but were you. Did you always thank you. End up in this business or is it just a advantageous. It's i had no idea. My my whole life has been about.

Once i saw what was going on arms it became more personal to me of these guys are risking their lives at the end of the gulf war.
