She created an empire of hair care products for black women, and she also employed an empowered thousands of black women across the country. Her story is the subject of a Netflix series called Self Made. Inspired by the Life of Madam C. J. Walker. The show stars Octavia Spencer as Thie, tenacious businesswoman, and Blair Underwood plays her husband. You see him struggle to live in the shadows of his wife's massive achievements. You might know Blair from L. A law dear white people or sex in the city. He also starred in the Broadway production of a Soldier's play. I talked to Blair right around the time. The play had to shut down early because of covert 19 back in mid March, and I started off by asking him why Madam C. J. Walker story is so important. She accomplished something that was just a monumental An extraordinary at the turn of the century in the late 18 hundreds and building this hair care empire Ah, woman. An African American woman, um, during that period of time to to earn that kind of money she did, And as you as you said, she employed and empowered thousands of African American women all over the world, So she was really you know, before Mary Kay or Avon or M Way she was creating distributors. People could have their own businesses and be their own business people at the time, So it was really extraordinary. It was amazing what she created, especially given the times in which she did it. Yeah, the early 19 hundreds. Incredible. So let's take a listen to a clip from the new Netflix series Self. This is you. Yeah, This is you and Octavia Spencer as husband and wife. New hotel downtown. The iron figure you will meet wouldn't go down. There could be a bell half you could do laundry. You don't just plant a seed and expect fruit the next day. Color women here. Just gotta get used to that idea. Somebody was doing ahead as all you know. I always love you big ideas, but I'm not going back to long enough. Now. Wait a minute. No way. Don't all made sacrifices You won't do was best for this family. Yeah, so there's definitely some tension. Attention that we hear that Cliff. How would you describe the relationship between your character CJ Walker and his wife, Madam C. J. Walker. Oh, loving but strained. I say, loving first, because I think that's the most important thing to know about. These two people is that they have great had great admiration for each other and affection. They came together and fell in love before she became successful before she became Madam C. J. Walker. Her name was Sarah. Breedlove. And my character's name is Charles Joseph Walker. So she's known in relationship to him. Mrs. CJ Welcome, Madam C. J. Walker, Um and then when she because of because for intellect and her driving her tenacity and her persistence. She as the brand became more famous, and she built. She was the driving force behind the empire that she built. And it was ah, a lot for him to swallow in tow handle into process on a day to day basis and There's alcoholism involved, and there was a womanising involved. And you know he himself was a man of his times on did not want to be defined by the woman in his life, no matter how much he loved her. It was very hard for him to just find his equilibrium in the midst of all of that. Yeah, and to figure out how to play second fiddle and still, I guess, maintain his masculinity or maintain the image of masculinity at that at that time, that's right and still feel of worth in a value. How did you get yourself into into that head space? That sounds like a really intense head space to get into. Well, you got nothing with acting you just Ah, In the simplest terms, we we played from people and we believe it A cz long as you believe more specifically that that you want this woman to win this woman that you're in love with that you want her to when you want her to succeed. And if you live in that space, and then all these other dynamics coming to play her becoming more successful, who are becoming more famous for becoming more well known, and then her ideas are the ones that really work more than your own. And then you you feel less diminished. But if it's rooted in the fact that you bonded and you came together as a team because of the respect and admiration and love for each other. Everything else kind of falls into place. You've been married yourself for 25 years. Did you draw on any of your own experiences in figuring out the power dynamics of a partnership for this role? Uh, yeah, I think you know you draw them everything you've got, because I was sorry. I should be more specific. I guess I'm wondering like you're a famous person, and I'm wondering if there's anything for you not even in terms of like gender roles. But just just just what it is to be a person who is in the limelight and and also trying to make sure that they're there. Partner comes along. With them and shines just as brightly. Wow, you know, Tommy, That's that's really great question. I I do think what What I've learned is that it's important to make. I find everybody around. You feel of value, but you're asking specifically in relationships. But I think that's important, too. You know that your spouse in that marriage or relationship that has a kind of dynamic Where one person maybe more known to the public. And it's more public facing that that person is aware Of how your mate might feel. My my wife doesn't care doesn't look for it, which is great, So it's a part of its part in parts of what I do as a professional is part of my profession. So there's no conflict in that respect, but But there is a sense of you know that it's important that she knows that she is valued in her world and heard her desires and her passions. And I think that's true for any relationship, so I definitely you know. Use that and this character just understanding that

Leo Laporte - The Tech Guy On TikTok And Privacy
"This morning, what did I do? I downloaded installed TIKTOK. And then spent a wasted our. But a very enjoyable our scrolling through two games. I've used tiktok before I've been posted stuff on Tiktok. I think our social media team. Hey Jerry Masako, I think our social media team even uses Tiktok from time to time. But I you know maybe he's a good time now is download it put on the phone in case it gets band. Talk. About confused yeah I thought I'd I'd send all my information to China. Have it, China enjoy it. Why not I'm already sent to Google and facebook might as well give China look. Look see my boring life. Drive to the studio drive home drive to the studio drive home. That's it. Don't go anywhere. Don't do anything. If that excites you president she hadn't. have at it. It's actually really fun. It's probably the most engaging fun creative social site out there. I think it's awesome. Funny stuff. it just well done just really well done, and of course, the president wants to shut it down he sending very mixed signals so. It's really unclear first of all whether he could I guess he could. Could issue an executive order and then then. We'll see in court. because. There's no precedent. For that. Even Chinese companies have First Amendment Rights. TIKTOK? Scared They they've promised now they do all the things that make the White House ten thousand US jobs. We have a US CEO and finally last week they started negotiating with Microsoft to by the American part of it. Then the president said, now I don't want American company to buy it I just WanNa, shut it down. said that late Friday. So. Microsoft's said I hoped. Make up your mind. Meanwhile TIKTOK is filling up with memes saying, heck. No, we won't go that kind of thing. I think it's quite enjoyable and completely harmless. Completely harmless. You know. Any APP. You put on your phone, you should know this. You should know this your phone is the perfect spied vice. It already is and I don't care. You say, Oh, I'm used an apple I don't care apple android. It's a perfect spy device. What's the first thing I? Ask you do you ever see Jason Bourne movie. Spy. Movies ever see them. They always seem to end a begin Jason's driving around. He's cool. I'm cool. Jason. Bourne he's driving around and then some woman gets in trouble and screaming, help me help me and he says hop in the car. What's the first thing he does? Before drives, the woman to safety he takes her phony breaks it in half throws it out the window that doesn't good by the way just a tip. Under nothing. Just pick it up put it back together. But importantly, it's not the Bragan half that matters although it's quite satisfying especially in the old days those phones with hinges man they broke nice. Boom. Show off your muscles met Damon I'm strong I can break a phone and half throw it out the window. That's the most important thing because once it's out the window, it's no longer a homing device, a microphone and a camera in the car. That's what you're carrying around. You're carrying a beautiful little computer. That's always connected to the Internet. Beaming beginning broadcasting your location? Always, not just GPS mind you. The Bluetooth in there, there's something called Beacons Bluetooth beacons, apple put them in their first and android. So we gotta have those two and the whole idea. I. Don't know if anybody's. I don't think anybody's using whole ideas you go into a gap. You Walk into the gap store and the beacon on your iphone says Hey Leo's here he wears ex ex l point them in the right direction and little thing pops up that says, Hey, welcome to the gap fifty percent off if you turn left now. That was the idea beginning some museums use them. You know you're standing in front of the Mona Lisa. Yes. It's small, very small, surprisingly small. That's how was painted. No, it's not a fake. Don't touch it. That kind of thing. So. That's doing that Blit Bluetooth. Here's a fun. Here's a fun thing to do. Turn on Your Bluetooth Pairing I've done this. Get on the bicycle and ride down the street. By the end of the street you have in your Bluetooth, a list of hundreds of devices. Joe's speakers. Sally's refrigerator. Tommy's watch. Jerry's iphone all of those listed because they're sitting there going hey hey, over here, all the time. Then, there's the GPS Oh, and then it's got a microphone actually most of the modern funds have more than one. They have many microphones so they can be really really accurate. been. Really, hear every word you're saying when you try to get Syria to do something she goes I don't know what you're talking about. But boy, she heard you she heard you loud and clear because he got Mike Refunds in that thing. And then there's a camera. My case not just one, there's one, two, three, four. Or cameras not to mention depth sensing accelerometers a compass. This phone is designed to be and it's incredibly useful because of it the perfect homing device that's why that's why Jason Bourne throws it out the window. So we're carrying that around now, who has access to all that great information. Everybody. When you put an APP on your phone, what's the first thing says? It says it has a few things. Can I send you notifications? That's mostly it right. Can I use location if it's a map why not? So you say, yes. Yes. Yes. Now, that APP is just sitting there. It doesn't ask a lot of the things. It does affect. It's funny because. Apple's about to release in a month or two the next version of their iphone operating system I o West Fourteen. And the whole world up in arms. Because Iowa's fourteen adds new things. New Privacy protections like? Here's one the AD industry doesn't like too much. Hey. Right when you install the APP hey, is it okay if I use the apple advertiser ide- to identify you. Know. You could turn it off, but it's buried way deep in the settings now is asking you in the advertising industry says, that's GONNA kill us. Nobody's GonNa say yes to that. We're out of business. Okay. Apple says, yes see that's what you get. We tried we apple by the way. Don't take apples like the the angel here because they wanted to do an ad business, they had a thing called i. adds it would do exactly. That's that's why they had the. Apple advertiser I id. It just flopped. So Apple said, oh. No. What are we going to do? Oh, I. Know Let's pretend we care about your privacy because we can't attract any. You know we can't sell it anymore. So We'll make lemon lemonade out of Lemon and where the privacy company.
Tommy Orange Reads Louise Erdrich
"This month we're going to hear the years of my birth by Louisa Drake, which was published in the New Yorker in January of two thousand eleven growing up in the midst of a large family I had never registered visitations from my presence. At those rare moments when I was alone as something strange. The first time I was aware of it was when I was taken from Betty and putting the White Room. After that occasionally had the sensation that there was someone walking beside me or sitting behind you. Always, just beyond my peripheral vision. The story was chosen by Tommy Orange whose first novel there there was published in two thousand eighteen and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Hi Tony. Hey Deborah. So what made you choose a story by Louis urging for the podcast so you had published, I think last year. Short story of hers called The stone is a pretty short short story and is it was a strange story and it just struck me So when you asked me to choose a story I went looking for another one of hers. She's actually published a lot in the New Yorker because I haven't known her for Short Sir she only as one collection of short stories you don't with pretty massive career, most of her stories started stories and end up in her novels. Yes. That's what I've heard her say and this one just struck me I think it's such a perfect story. In what way is perfect for you. You know what I love that fiction can do is the way it can get inside a consciousness and the way it can push mystery. There's something. So mysterious in this story and I don't necessarily always like magical realism but what Lewis does so well, in a lot of her work is sort of pushing boundaries of reality where it still believable still realism you never are asked to believe too much sort of realism's magic. There's something so strange and mysterious about it and really powerful the sort of cultural touchdowns that she does. So subtly though a native culture plays into it in the way, white culture comes up. Yeah. It's interesting because there is a supernatural component, but it can also be read as almost completely realistic. You can kind of how much you WANNA. Think of this as a kind of allegorical story and how much you want to think of it as real. Yeah. This is exactly what what I love about this story and what Louise doesn't work like I said. And if you've been reading, Lewis worked for most of her writing career at least. I mean, she's definitely one of my favorite writers of all time but I came to her a little bit later in my reading path. It wasn't until I was going to the Institute of American Indian Arts Getting my MFA a lot of native literature I didn't come to until getting into the program I. Sort of came in through a back door reading. Wise. I read a lot of work in translation, but I read love medicine I and just completely fell in love with her work. And do you feel the connection for you is that you have shared native American heritage? Definitely when I first started reading actually was a little bit turned off to some native fiction because it was. So reservation based and I, I have this urban experience but that was just sort of at the beginning of me thinking about native representation what it would look like in my own work the way that she handles bringing in native culture I think is so perfect. There's a clumsy way to do it and she never does it that way. always comes across really organically. and. Do you think that this story the the years of my birthday this characteristic if that main character as we'll discover is actually not native. Yeah I. Think the way that that works for the reader to something. Really Cool. Sort of putting you into a native family as a white character does a lot of work for the story I think. We'll talk more after the story and now here's Tommy Orange reading the years of my birth by Louise urge. The years of my birth. The nurse had wrapped my brother and a blue flannel blanket and was just about to hand him to his mother when she whispered. Oh God there's another one and out I slid half dead. I then proceeded to diner ernest going from slightly pink to a dull grey blue at which point the nurse tried to scoop me into a bed warm by lights. She was stopped by the doctor who pointed out my head and legs. Stepping between and the mother, the doctor addressed her. Mrs Lascher I've something important to say your other child had a congenital deformity and may die. Shall we use extraordinary means to salvage it? She looked at the doctor with utter incomprehension at first then cried. No.
"Welcome to film spotting, we will get to our Nolan Review Awards. Later in the show, we might have an for those awards picked out by. Then we might not. We will share our awards for favourite supporting performance and lead performance from this retrospective of the work of Christopher Nolan will also share our picks for best Nolan moment in the overall best moment or seen after we have revisited all ten of Nolan's films and that will culminate with our Christopher Nolan rankings. The definitive Christopher ranking for each of us one to ten will there be some shifting Adam Gimme a tease. Shifts definitely from the last time, I posted a Nolan ranking on letterbox. There's been some movement Yep me too one I think you'll like I don't know if you'll like it enough, but you will like it I though the World War Two movie from Christopher Nolan that we didn't know we needed dunkirk. The enemy tanks stop. Why? Why waste precious tanks when they can pick from the. Barrel. Their full hundred thousand men only speech. Your position. Josh, coming into this rewatch was that done kirk is Christopher, Nolan's best film and there's at least one longtime listener and regular commentator who agrees with you that we are culminating this overview triumphantly with the filmmakers greatest achievement Adam Grossman in Vancouver says like many of us. I've completed my Christopher Nolan Review. Biggest takeaway hoover is a really hard were dispel. Well, second takeaway. I've decided dunkirk is Nolan's career highpoint while my heart loves interstellar the most good on you Adam and I. Hugely Admire. and. The Dark Knight for what they meant to Action Cinema and Superhero movies respectively dunkirk is his masterpiece got laid down for you tenant. I just don't know how anyone could argue that the legend of dunkirk could be told any better the setup and the first eight minutes alone from the falling paper from the sky to the distress. Cry of where's the bloody air force is a wonder of a short film. In itself, the lack of dialogue works perfectly for what this movie wants to achieve with. Hans. Zimmer's relentless scored doing all the audio work that's necessary among all the chaos. There are frequent moments of grace. Kenneth. Branagh face as Commander Bolton as the cavalry arrives in the form of the civilian vessels the empathy as Peter Tells Killian Murphy's PTSD soldier. The young George will be okay and no moment more than the shot. Be Okay and no more than a shot of Tom Hardy's planes silently gliding over the beaches of dunkirk knowing his job has been done. dunkirk is also uniquely Christopher Nolan Movie One where his signature use of time has never melded together better and more cohesively than it does in the final twenty minutes of this film while Dunkirk will understandably never be a wholly enjoyable or easy rewatch. It's one that gets richer and richer with repeat viewing. Now, Adam Mention Nolan signature use of time, and that is one aspect of dunkirk among others that certainly connects to his entire body of work. But there are other aspects that Mark Dunkirk is unique. It is only film that is based on historical events, which means it is inherently rooted in the past and yet I'd argue it is only film that truly feels present tense meeting there are no. Dead parents or wives or forsaken children or other tragic events haunting the air's barrier played by Tom. Hardy the Moles Army private Tommy fiene whitehead or for the most part the sees Mr Dawson played by Mark Rylance like all Nolan protagonist there's plenty of personal sacrifices on display but no guilt no sense of futility about toning past actions just the seemingly futile need to survive the current event that they. Are Tragically experiencing here's something else that argues unique about dunkirk as we every other commentator on Dolan's work is discussed in some form or fashion for all those dead parents and wives and foresaken children. There's nothing so emotional or borderline sentimental in any of his previous films as the climax of inception and yes, mileage may vary there which led to interstellar and not only mcconaghy's crushing breakdown watching twenty three. Years Worth of miss video messages from his family but the verbalize message love is the one thing we're capable of proceeding that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that even if we can't understand it, it's hard to imagine any character in previous Christopher Nolan movies saying something like that which led to Dunkirk am I crazy josh this is his most blatantly sentimental and even heart film. And if so is that what establishes Dunkirk as his best its balance of coldness the sober portrayal of the hell of war of life in the misguided choices, some men will make when facing death with warmth. In the compassionate inspiring choices some men will make to maintain a way of life. So a lot of subtleties in that question and you're onto something so you're not crazy I think I would distinguish. The word blatantly, I. Don't think this is blatantly emotional or moving, but I do think you're onto something in the fact that it is maybe his most heartwarming in where it ends up and let me kind of try to parse those. You're right as long as the Nolan Canon has convulsing McConnell. Interstellar is going to be his most blatantly emotional I mean you can't have a scene like that without registering that on it surface. That's his most emotional movie. But I will also say that I find Dunkirk to be his most emotionally affecting movie maybe even more. So than inception, which we about how I did find that very moving especially in the character of Mal. So yet dunkirk is really a unique thing even as it's working within the strands and trends that we have been tracing in Nolan's other films, I. Think the heartwarming aspect is probably a part of that. You've nailed it there in that it brings us to a place that. Is One of Constellation and I think it's earned because I think up until that point we have just been suffering alongside all of these other characters in so many ways and we've also been recognizing as the movie does that this is You know a an account of a military failure, a huge defeat and so for the movie to kind of offer, some sort of solace at the end of that I think is. In proportion and well
Julia Elbaba on keeping her pro dreams alive
"Our special guest is someone who was a legend in College Julia. L. Baba. High Girls! Thanks for having me. A brief rundown of Julian tennis career, she was number one in college as a junior Uva four time all American set a record at UvA singles with one hundred and thirty three wins, and then took her skills. Bro tour which is has been ranked as high as number three seventy two, so we want to talk about your career. Your Life, your tennis, story and kind of what's next for you because you're in New York I guess I. Where have you been for this whole pandemic? Have you been in New York or if you've been? So my father is a frontline health care worker in New York so I decided instead of like kind of staying away from him in the House I thought you know, let me just go to back to my. Stomping grounds at Virginia where things were kind of magical for me there i. just honestly they say best. Four years are in college and I never boating and when I actually went to school. I totally understood why they say that I can't get enough of that place. And I feel like many other tennis players that had attended UBA same way 'cause we were kind of all in quarantine together in Charlottesville from about mid March two up until a couple of weeks ago. We were kind of all. They're not necessarily hanging out, but we were all doing our thing in Charlottesville. Some people were hitting, but Just being there with so nice and The situation is a lot better there than New York is far as corona virus. So with regards to your college experience I. Mean I went to college for two years and I mean. You're clearly very excited talking about your college experience. What would you say like sticks out? What is it that you love so much about it? I just really appreciate a team environment of tennis and kind of playing for team. I actually that's the hardest thing I've been dealing with after call just kind of transitioning back to the individual lifestyle so playing for a team playing for your coaches, the school. The fans something about that was. Just brought me to life every day, and it was, it was beautiful and and also I'm a person that thrives in a situation where I have more than one thing going on multitasking so doing school with tennis I really that busy lifestyle, and that's kind of actually why. I started my own podcast as a way to have something else to juggle with professional tennis right now. It's a tricky time. I feel like especially. You just turned twenty six and you sound like you're still very connected to your college experience, but you did. Take your skills to the pro tour. Can you tell us where you're at in your career with tennis? Yeah so up. Until the beginning of two thousand, nineteen, I was going strong with competing traveling around the world. And then unfortunately, my body is very easily injured. I have a very muscular physique and it's just. Primarily like just genetics people think what are you doing, Jim that your body so muscular and strong like? Oh, you can ask my mom. But honestly I feel like the muscle mass. Mass! makes me more prone to injury and I'm actually now unhealthy but I was dealing with an injury for the past year. A torn UCLA in my right elbow, which is like You probably know what Tommy John. If you have to get surgery, it's Tommy John Surgery. But I didn't need that. Luckily I was actually ready to start competing again once. Quarantine hit sides kind of bad lockwood the timing. What's been one of the things that you've found other than the fact that you have to play for yourself now? I mean being on the tour is not easy. A lot of people just think that Oh. I was a good college player. You know now I'm going to just transition easily into the tour, but what was kind of the most shocking thing for you. Definitely the adjustment to just being on the road by herself. Obviously, if you know you're doing really well, you can bring a whole entourage and it's great. physios of massage therapists families all your support system, but also I Adore on court coaching. I it just really works well for me. And I get really tight and nervous on tennis court so having that coach during matches especially in college, I definitely thrived in that environment. So I'm actually very. Much like into trying to have coaching during matches in protest I think that would just be super cool. Tennis is like the only sport that doesn't have that like why.

The number one de facto thing that everybody says when I say the second amendments, the most important one, and this is why I believe that I believe the second amendment. The most important because the first amendment is amazing, and it's great, but what happens when the government says you can't do that anymore. They're already doing it.

Coming forward and then being silenced talking about Yousef area rituals, and this is the tin foil hat moment, but people I if you ask me this a month ago, I like that is the most insane thing I've ever heard. Until it's but but. Two months before that of you told me Oh, well. They're Lisa's virus. They CA-. They could crash the American dollar, and and basically defraud the dollar and force everyone in the crypto currency and have a one world globalized Doberman I'd be like that's the craziest thing I've ever heard. So twenty twenty months to month is just the craziest thing I've ever heard coming true and another crazy thing that I've never heard coming true and I'm like okay. That's really weird and maybe I'm like nuts, but I would I would much rather be wrong like desperately. WanNa be wrong I. DON'T WANNA be right I'm not out here. Saying like I know I'm saying. This is. And the more that I look into things and the more people will reach out to me the more information I get and I'm like Oh. This is terr- Buying Yup. I was just saying we say over here. It's like every month. There's like the next level of Jumanji over here like like something something new in horrible. It's coming I. Just got a notification by the way I'd odd. Push in here. you guys just published a new a new post on your patriotic account. We are a bad wolf Patriot on. Subscriber over here very much so. Anyway that was random Let me let me ask you something though. That's a whole other thing. Everybody's mad because they gotta pay for the cover album, they got a stream yard. Forbid people actually have to help you? Pay Your bills, but either way. Let me. Ask You something societal for for a minute. Let let let let's let let's tear down all this. Let's leave the media out of it for a minute. Let's leave all this stuff. Let's leave Ju. Just even me and you sit here talking right now, just having a conversation. To completely different people from completely different backgrounds We're actually a lot similar in a lot of ways I. got an inhaler right here. I got asthma myself. I volunteer with there. It is there it is. I volunteer with the Police Department the Sheriff's Department here. You know which I must say that we arrest ten to one white people, but you know. People don't want to hear that anyway. To me. One of the biggest issues one of the biggest things that bothered me the most in twenty twenty, and this is what I like to believe that I try to fight against the most is the fact that if people? If me, and you doug far enough I would venture to say we probably would agree on maybe seventy seventy five percent of things. Maybe we know when it's all, said and done, but but but but you're never going to agree one hundred percent with everybody about everything and today. It seems like if we disagree on anything, we have to be these mortal enemies. We're immediately stupid or racist or or bigots or whatever. It seems like we just not agree to disagree on certain things and just be as people. It's it's because of a lack of humility and the way that the human ego works is that. The EGO is basically. The worst thing for US Ray! We need to ego because it's the part of us. That kicks into survive, but we're not living. You know there's a really good book called. Stadium? They should check out. I'll send you a link. Yeah, but you know I. Read that i. read our Ghardaia Lane I. Understand the. The Eagle is a it believes that we're separate end so. People who are proven. If you're if you're depending if your whole idea of your self is dependent on your ego. If, someone proves you wrong. Or if you're wrong, your ego dies. So it has to die, so the EGO will fight. Online, it will fight, you know it'll fight and fight and fight because it needs to be right, see with me. I practice the I do have ego and I am successful and I am talented. A lot of attributes, but I have a lot of shortcomings I have to keep my ego in check, so part of my recovery is turning my life over, and my will to something greater. Do I understand what that is not necessarily would have had a near death experience I died. I went to another place. I have had the unique I have had the experience of returning from understanding that this, isn't it and that the Eagle is just here? It's just pour in evolutionary part of us to drive us to stay alive, but we don't. We're not constantly in threat of being destroyed, so we as we become more sophisticated in society, as we become more sophisticated as we evolve as as animals, they eagle becomes less and less valuable so attaching itself to politics, attaching itself to identity politics, race religion, whatever is the new form of being allowed to stay alive because the reality is. All of us realize..

Just south of Chicago in fact, we share eighty seven street with Chicago hometown did does I don't live there anymore? and then on the other side is oaklawn where you recorded a number of albums in Oakland Illinois which I find fascinating. Because what studio is in, Oakland Illinois I. Mean Pumpkin is, but but where was it? It was on. The street who was on? This outside. But. And whatever you? Say Again I'm sorry. It was in oaklawn yeah. which again growing up at hometown when we heard you know Holy Shit sticks his recording and oaklawn. We'd ride our bikes around trying to find you guys and. I gotTa tell you never found never. Never located you, it's. Not for lack of trying. So many years later the Tom I would. I've worked at a record store I. Won't go into the full details on this because I've told enough on this show and it seems unfair to tell it now. But I lived not too far from Prestwick which is where. Dennis. May still live. And so he would come into a record store all the time and he would come in in his tour jacket. And Always found that interesting of that He would show up in. His Sat in paradise. Theatre tour. Jacket the let you hey, dentist. Young's in the house. HOW CRAZY AND I! Only bring this up for this reason. How crazy was it in the I know you mentioned the cocaine, but in the early eighties when sticks? Let's be one of the top five bands in the country Do Anything. You want was completely crazy to be a rockstar at that time. At? The Height of quote, Unquote Classic Rock. It was fun. Yeah, it was a lot of fun. Yeah, and you're. For from It's it's it's still fun. As not bad kind of fun. You know it's different times We're all older more settled Davos still just. When when we go up on stage it, doesn't it? It could be. On nineteen seventy eight again. It's just so. Maybe, even better because we appreciate, do appreciate what we have. and. The musicianship the. Shops this band. you know I feel so lucky to be in their presence on stage to have to hear them playing when I'm saying to be backing them up in their singing. Is Unbelievable I al. I will attest to that. There is not a time where sticks doesn't come to Los Angeles that. I don't go because of what you just said. It's yours. You're seeing phenomenal musicianship you're you know you know every song? If you don't know this song if from new album whatever you know, figure it out and then go buy that album. Then get to know for the next time they come to town which is he addictive Reynolds adrenaline rush. I want to do that again. Right and and you guys do would be a pre pandemic. You guys are on the road a lot, right? You do a one hundred plus shows a year were doing one hundred twenty shows for. Ten fifteen years We had to cut it back to eighty. which meant you know what you get these offers? Okay, we'll do that. WIND UP DOING A. One hundred. And at and to your longevity, you're still playing. Nice size venues it's it's a you know the. Sabban the last time, but the time was the Greek performing the Greek or the time before that was at the forum, so it's not like all of a sudden. You're on the the the RIB fest tour. You're still performing. by the way those are all great shows, too. I'm not shitting. He's we. We play where the people are and. When I heard about that rib fest, it was like what. Is this. Out in their backyard. No, no, it's tens of thousands of people, and they're all happy in there, and there's no there. I don't know why they call it the best I guess. They have ribs, but. Steve Humanity and so we once we got out started. Getting some variety in in. The summer of you gotta go out and play outside. Fast If. You're going to be like I'm only langer. You're missing out on some great Shit, because to be outdoors like we. We still go and play Sweden fast. We we played there. Earlier this year. Sixty thousand people outside. and. You know there's something about that. We we actually we rebroadcast that. Sweden rock show and God was just listened to the track since like men on fire, so yeah, but we'll go play smaller places. We'd switch it up. And It really doesn't matter. Smaller audiences, irs are harder to play to. For some reason why? I? Have this conversation with Comedians all the time I like a smaller audience because I feel like you communicate with them as a comedian, you could communicate with them a little bit better because it's a smaller group and you're having a in my and you're having a conversation, so why if you are a singer songwriter as you are? Why would you find it more difficult to perform for a small? I don't think harder is is just so personal. Look at them crack. These individual, the water, and and those are oftentimes just filled with these hardcore sticks fancy, and they're never judgmental about they in fact. You know. Musicians the best when we make mistakes all through the night that years, little ones, but Even as you kind of hear it. There's so much coming by. But that's. That's the beauty live music. You know the humans up there playing and singing same time. You. Didn't take enough deep, enough breath or some I thought about something and I. You know we call it clams. It's an issue really were. You know there are some Baynes who just serve ridiculous I don't clamp free, but we're not we're. We're so into it physically and just the moment that sometimes you know. But then smaller theatre you know. It just. I don't know you just want it to be perfect in. Your spices with. Is the. Acoustics are fantastic and your everything. I don't so it's not harder is just a little more. More, intense I guess it makes and also I would imagine the smaller venue to your point that maybe the clams. Your were mine a musician Maybe they stand out a little bit more than they would in a Not as hidden as they would be. An arena is that. Is that safe to say? Yeah definitely, 'cause. It's all there's not. ECHO in the reserve. Right Okay Point just hit another. Follow up question about that did I just completely forgot what it was? Hang on your performing a small room. You're fucking. I lost it I'm not a good interviewer. I'm not good at his job. What. Go ahead. What are you playing? You got subbing? Just, just just wailing all right. I had. Shit I completely like let you mentioned mistakes. And this is a sideways way to get into this way. When spinal tap came out, there were the rumors that some of that was based on the Roy tour. Is there any truth to that like the retirees were maybe. The projection wouldn't work or something like that that Christopher guest based on, or is that just one of those wives tales that urban legends that's gone around now.

Come back now we're talk. Back. We don't either do again. That was the last time I drank and so I thought that was. Interesting! There's also another time that I. told you about this on podcast on. That I was at the Nine hundred ninety seven was that the twenty year anniversary of the grand illusion tour, and it was at the universal amphitheater here Los Angeles and. I was backstage and. Took advantage of the free bar and got drunk out of my fricking mind and. Then I'll say it. Attacked you acted like an asshole. I was like Oh. There is Tommy Shaw and I was I. was that Fan that you just can't wait to get away from and I? Just I I wouldn't let you go. I was the belligerent a man that talk about this with you and. It was all I kept on selling you. Was that your album? What if is my favorite I? Said Hey is my favorite of your solo albums and whatever you set back to me was not what I wanted to hear, so I then upped the ante and said I'm not kidding. It's my favorite album of all time. and. That seems high. Can we agree on that? and. In close. March. and. Parts of it. Fresh because again, I'm sure you haven't played that since the mid eighties when you were coke up. At sober. So. Tommy I'm interested since we're on the topic of that album and I had heard through the years that you hated that album. Is it because of where you were in your life that you didn't like it or or did I misread a an interview, or is that just how you felt on that day? I'm disappointed in that album is that because I was drinking heavily and doing cocaine, and and it was just you know. It could have been a lot better. Boy At the end. That's surprising to me because it I was working at a record store at the time. And we got the whatever the version of the Promo Day called that the white label or whatever that came into the record store, and I was listening to it nonstop, and the other memory I have epochal album is. I was going to pick up this girl on a date, and she said my dad wants to meet you. And I wanted to meet her dad, and he was wearing a leisure suit and. I just assumed that. When you turn fifty, you started wearing leisure suits. It was the most uncomfortable like why the fuck are you walk? Run a leisure suits, you Weirdo, and like it just bizarre to me. But but let's go back all the way if you're comfortable doing it. Talking about the first album I ever bought with my own money was the grand delusion in seventy seven. But you joined the band and seventy six. And Crystal Ball was your first album. I'm sorry. Was it seventy six or seven, seventy, five, December, seventy five, okay, so. sorry I'm off thirty days. Even remember it. Very proud of you. So you you, you're like a car traveling cover basically right? Do maybe doing some originals, but mostly covers out of. Thing that was messed up about our history were doing almost all original. Right heap cover, or you know tower power cover, but mostly mostly covers. Mostly our own songs, and on the Crystal Ball albums Internet for saga..
"tommy i" Discussed on The Projection Booth Podcast
"The weather when he listened to the projection booth e episodes last forever anyway. I'm joined today by Mr Schizophrenic. I'm free and also with us as MS heather drain. Hello Hello on this special episode of the projection booth. We are looking at Ken. Russell's Tommy released in nineteen seventy five. This is an interpretation of the WHO's rock opera of the same name which stars Roger Daltry as the Titular Tommy. After witnessing scene of his mother and her lover killing his father Tommy is rendered psychosomatically blind deaf and mute. He becomes a whiz at pinball starts a religion and is eventually brought low as a false prophet. If that wasn't spoiler e- enough we will be doing plenty more spoiling this film as we go along so you have been warned so skits. When was the first time we saw? Tommy what did you think I wanted to see it when it came out? I was Was that seventy five so it was about nine and I kept seeing the clips on TV. I think they should parts of the the acid queen scene of Tina Turner with her mouth. Quivering in that shot near the end. And then the The scene of an Margaret with the first the suds and then the beans and then the pinball wizard scene which that song was all over the radio so I I want to see this movie so bad again. I was nine. I didn't get to see it until probably nineteen eighty three when it was a believe it was a double feature of Tommy and pink. Floyd the wall at the cool Alternative Theater in my town. It really lived up to my my hopes and dreams and by that point I'd become a huge fan of the WHO album like when the movie first came out. I barely even heard of the WHO so I had a few years to really absorb that album in its entirety so getting to see the movie version of it was like yeah can't wait. How about you heather. Tommy I got to see Tommy Actually. Only part of it initially. This is in the early nineties. I was in seventh grade and it was on. Tbs ADDICOTT awfully. Oh my God tell him. He's on. I literally got it midway. To where like in Margaret and Roger. Daltry are in the car and she singing. Tommy can you hear either and my best friend at the time also was watching it at her house and the next day we were like. Did you see Tommy? And she's like yeah like. Was that as curl friend or his mom. 'cause she caught it midway to. Inbar grits only like a handful of years older than Roger Daltry but we but we loved it and obviously I went back to As as soon as I can catch get on TV. I taped all of it which is watch it over and over again. I absolutely fell in love with that thought it was completely fantastic or goal and of course that was the seed planted for my my lifelong crush on Oliver Reed. Good crush to have out the best. I was looking all over the Internet for the early commercial. The that this used to play as a commercial the whatever Broadway comes to Detroit kind of thing and it was all over Saturday morning cartoons in when you're kidding just basically repeat the commercials that you hear so that whole see me. Feel me touch me. Heal me thing. We used to sing that all the time we had no idea really what was from and then years and years later. I finally figured out that it was from this thing called Tommy and then finally saw the movie I think it was probably on sixteen. It might have been thirty five at a U. OF M. Screening and. Oh my God. It was the first time it wasn't the first time I had experienced Ken Russell but was the first time I've experienced Ken. Russell of this era and it just completely blew me away and it was one of those. Where I immediately got the soundtrack that movie soundtrack and just like played the shit out of those on Lp. Probably too much to the annoyance of my roommates at the time. But I didn't care because I just loved it so much. Do you ever like even if you're by yourself. Reenact some of the scenes because then so that we would do like we do like because of course play over rated. I do the whole life a doctor. I've found that little strutton everything. I made a bit a little too old for that though. I've definitely have spilled baked beans on myself before. Are you covered in baked beans right now? That right now just chocolate covered just certain particular areas Mike. Would you got a whole hog into the whole land of Tommy was your take? What was this your first introduction to the apple must've survey and then you went to the WHO like the original who album. Yeah I really. Wasn't that much into the. Who when I was younger. I really wasn't into a lot of different rock and roll stuff what I hear on the radio like when I was a teenager when w CSX ninety four point seven started up. I was like okay. This is cool because I listened to a lot of oldies when I was younger. I also listed a lot of classical and then started to get more into like the rock stuff is things went along but like I really never list the led Zeppelin or black sabbath or a lot of the. Who until I was in college so we even had like a little library in the dorm that I lived in where you could go and check out albums so I remember checking out the WHO sells next and a couple other who albums and those were my first exposures to those? I didn't grow up Mormon or anything but sometimes I feel like I was a little sheltered. I find with the WHO it's you know. Everybody has kind of their own pace like it took me a while as much as I love this movie. I always liked the WHO but that was like a slow burn ban for me like I instantly glommed onto bands like the kinks and the tubes but who right now are just completely love song but it took me a while like the the the movie this movie and this was my first Ken Russell as well which is very sacred this in the boyfriend. Weirdly enough I slugged. Seeing the boyfriend I started with crimes of passion. Yeah which I way too young. A layer of the white worm whore and then this one was probably like my fourth one. Wow Wow that's that's amazing As far as the Hulu I did have a cutout. Vhs Of the kids are alright. So I got a lot of that era of the WHO which I know has some older and newer. I mostly knew the WHO as being that band that they talked about on WTKK. Aarp in Cincinnati. Eleven kids lost their lives last night. Concert what are you talking about? Travis is kind of bad joke so I wish it were there. I didn't see anything. None of us did happen before the concert started. Mr Karlsson there was this large crowd outside the Coliseum. You've been waiting for hours and hours. It was very cold. Somebody inside decided to open some doors. There was some reserved seating mostly general admission as what they call festival seating asks what they call a stampede mass what hap- who didn't even know what it comes down to laugh. This show was. This was this your first Ken. Russellville think it was. I'm trying to think of any of his films I saw before it and I can't imagine I mean cinematic pretty sheltered until like the mid eighties so this was before I even really had a way to explore. I don't know movies except for a late night. Television the I don't think. Tv was playing a whole lot of of Ken. Stephens all placate the cable there for sure. Actually Mike. If it makes you feel better assault layer of the white worm away and I actually woke up in the middle of the sequence where there's that dream vision of the crucifixion. Others non speaking and the worms wrapped around I was like I literally thousands in health for all only. Okay all is well have either. Have you guys seen the stage? Play of Tommy. The Rock Opera. Yes I haven't yet came to Baltimore. I don't know when that was the nineties to thousands or something kind of went not expecting it to be very good and I was right but it was still just kind of fun to hear. The music played live and see this spectacle on a stage. I appreciate all the changes that they made to the musical having never seen it hearing about it like updating it from World War One World War Two just because that carried such a psychic scar for the British people I think even more than World War One because one was fought in a foreign land in World War Two brought the battle right to their doorstep. I mean that they were affected by the blitz must have had such a bigger impact and also that the makers of the this movie and the guys who if they weren't directly impacted they lived in that post World War coop Britain which took so long to recover from especially getting to see it as a younger person and realized very early on that how sheltered like as Americans kind of have been for more for a long time. Because it's like right early on this. Is something a detailed actually kind of forgotten until we watching this movie for the Eighteenth Time? Recently for this podcast is like early on. I mean you see like a dead kid in the ROB There is no holden bag with the and the violence. Of course we get wonderful like Ken. Russell Ian is a term is now touch and you haven't. You're not which I love. Is the show curl with a gas mask? All those showgirls there. So amazing yeah and the one that comes right up to the camera and basically looks right at us right which is That's the thing. There's so many cool moments of certain characters kind of breaking the fourth wall and I love this whole preamble the overture that we have before we even get the first lyric and that. I think it's a really you know it's a. It's a beautiful way of telling the story. It's all done with just music and the actors faces. There's no dialogue. There's no singing but getting that whole story of Tommy's mom and dad and I love that. I mean that it starts with that opening shot of Thomas Dad in front of the Sun and then that we have that beautiful book and at the end with Tommy and the exact same place. And it's like he's returning to that. I land that idyllic time that we see at the beginning with the MOM and dad there but just having that whole story of the father going off to war and then potentially burning up in a plane and just all of those things before we even get the first lyric song. Yeah I do Kinda wish. Though that they recorded the The whose original album and change things around it didn't slavishly. Try to to recreate it. But I do Kinda hate the way. The music sounds during that overture. Kinda wish. They didn't have those electric organ. Sounds so much there. I one point partly. I wish they would just use the track from the album. That's actually seems like a product of a like kind of being like a Robert Stick Wood Production. I kind of feel like any musical. He touched sorter arose. Attached to sort of has In the case of this movie it's it's good. He also was touched. The Sergeant Pepper which which is a movie i. I will hate watch every few years usually drunk now I actually I love the Laurente Kinda circular imagery to add especially like right down to like Tommy. Kron light going through the waterfall towards the movie. Were you know you see his parents but he possibly could have been conceived in that very water at its. There's something really beautiful just a whole birth death and rebirth cycle going on. It's just right off the gate like the primary colors like got the color us. I mean every I mean Ken Russell's use of imagery in everything Is I would say unforgettable. Like they're painters. That would kill the have Ken Russell like I and vision and just everything just hops. Yet is just such a gorgeous film and I really wanted to call out the costumes. The costumes are just so great. I mean even just a little touches on the costumes. I mean even when it comes like an marcus hearings and seeing that you'll have this really elaborate earrings through so much of it and then she'll have the little pinball earrings towards the end and just how we get that pinball in imagery throughout this whole movie over and over and over again and just all the circles and the shiny stuff and it just it is so captivating the I just so pleasurable to watch. And it's like one of those movies where it's hard for me to even start to look at the background just because I'm just captivated by whatever's moving in front of the camera. I love the all that and the design. I think about the scene with Eric Clapton. Who's really pretty wooden in that scene? But it's such a great scene and the whole it's not just Marilyn Monroe but it's like warhol's idea of Marilyn Monroe worked into this church. I'm not even really sure how to describe it but I'm sure we've all seen it. We know what I'm talking about but every time I re watching the film recently I kind of felt like for the first time it took a while to really kick in for me like I was kind of not as into it as I used to be until Roger daltry shows up on stage on screen. Which is that scene and suddenly from that moment on. It just doesn't stop and that scene is such a great way to start the whole rest of the movie from there.

"Awesome. Thank you in your phone. Yeah cool so let's go back to the novel second. What what was the germ was this like the tiniest seed for the novel? Was it a voice a scene image. How did this? How did that ball get rolling? So I I worked in a at a nonprofit at the native American Center for almost a decade in Oakland and I started off there it was actually when I was working at the used bookstore. Part time there I was part time. data entry so at the hockey rink that I that I grew grew up playing that was owned by two Indian brothers but not native American east Indian from Philly and they grew up playing ice hockey and saw. They were both businessmen and saw an opportunity for roller hockey. When in the ninety s at the height and so they started this rink they they had a cousin who worked at the native American Health Center? So Indian Indian center not an Indian but and they said there's there's a thing that we give preference to a hiring policy or a law where you can give preference which is not normally the case. But you can give preference to native people a native organizations so they told me that because they knew I wasn't necessarily focused and needed to job and so I started doing data entry there and over the years worked in many different. Were many different hats at that nonprofit in the Bay Behavioral Health Department at the Health Center. I knew I wanted to to write a novel but I didn't. I didn't necessarily know what and I didn't have the drive to even start until I found out I was GONNA to be a father and that really changed something in me to take writing more seriously. I was writing a lot of experimental stuff very unreadable and something about the seriousness of becoming a father and you know the role of teaching another human how to be a human just sort of switched something and made and made me WanNa take writing adding more seriously and take on like a real project and and so we're driving down me and my wife would drive down to La this maybe two months after finding finding out she was pregnant. We're going to see chilly. Gonzales is a Canadian pianist. And he's very strange. Also rapper producer and we were going to see him live and around on I five and the idea just popped in my head and the premise was just a big cast of characters. All their lives would converge at a Palo at the coliseum. That was the seed. I don't know where it came aimed from. It just popped into my head so when I was a you described it in a moment when you kind of knew it was going to be a novel that now that you are actually going to finish it. I think it had to do with being invited to do. A reading for some of the students at the at who our kids were involved with the with the the work you're doing at the health center. Is that right so it was a year after starting the novel. This is sort of something that inspired inspired me to keep going. I think my wife was the project director for a suicide prevention grant. And we've taken the kids to Alcatraz had elders talk to them about their their time during the occupation and my wife have decided to put together like an author reading series and and she put me into it. Even though I had enough I was not an author or a barely would be considered a writer but But she was the project director so I read in front of these native youth both Something from that first year writing and it was one of the scariest readings I've ever done and and they were really emotionally affected by it and moved by. And they they were not easy to move or to Make do anything so it was. It was a really important moment for the novel for me that I could reach these native youth. It really you know. Give me some energy writing energy move forward. What sounds like it's that moment that you maybe you had years before in the bookstore about realizing what fiction can do right and I I kind of wonder on a probe that a little bit like what is it that you think I I mean fiction can do in a distracted the distracted world that we live in what is it that is so powerful? I think novels levels I mean I think fiction can do anything and that may sound naive but I think if you write a sentence well enough and collect those senses together correct and you can convince people of anything. It sounds like a crazy person. A Hitler sort of statement slightly sinister tone to it but but I'm going to take it on the positive. Is it aside. No I think fiction. I think the possibilities are endless..

"Rising the bookstore. I'm like putting a curse on everything that I love get. Outweigh can guys. This conference is in big trouble because Tommy oranges here. Getting who are who are you reading at the time I'm I mean aside from maybe some of the religious texts like who is really getting excited about fiction at the time Kafka embarrass where the where the I think. They're good bridge from MM philosophy to fiction. So what about those writers really turned you on. I didn't even know what fiction could do. I didn't read it all anything. Anything I read in high school. I was just skimming through to pass a test or you know. I didn't even care to pass it. I just wanted to not drop out of school or not get kicked out And so I wasn't reading really and so when I realized what fiction could do and they really push the limits of what fiction can do in a in a serious way to me Mm I knew I wanted to do it. And I read John Kennedy tools confederacy dunces right around that time and the moment that I realized I wanted to some day. Try to write a novel. I was actually eating a donut and reading confederacy of dunces on a break from the bookstore. And it was. You know that you can be that funny. Finding in sad was just the best thing ever to me. I love the detail of the donut because it also actually. I'm serious because in a way. When you read Tommy's book the level more specificity and detailed that book is remarkable and you just saw him do it in speech that exactly why that novel functions so beautifully? I want to just pause there about literature to talk about music because aside from your from your from the false start in the audio engineering world. You're also piano the player and when did you start playing piano so I fell in love with playing music with the guitar and I was eighteen eighteen and then when I was twenty one I I had a dream where I was lost in a hotel with a bunch of other people that was completely empty. The hotel look no furniture. Anything and we were all looking for the same thing but we couldn't tell each other what it was and I came out to like the back of the hotel and I saw piano and the key. The white keys were double wide. BLACKIES were the same has no significance but they were and I sat down and played a song that I felt came from wherever the deepest feelings you have come from and I and I just knew I wanted to get back to that place so so I went out at pretty hard after that dream right around that time by discovered tea and he is doing something that I I just I wanted to head in that to that territory. Whatever he's doing so we actually have a little clip of Tommy? Playing saying that I'm GonNa ask you. Do you want to set it up at all so I was recently at the macdowell colony And this is not really in the family of Eric's. It this has more sort of a Russian the sound I was obsessed with Rachmaninoff for a little while and not that. This is Rochman enough like this is this is something I recorded at the macdowell colony. I was in my room where I was staying. There was a baby grand and I read. Make a lot of recordings. There's sort of like sketches or notes for future piano pieces that I never develop up to. This is one of those play about thirty seconds of. That'd be great awesome. Thank you in your.

O. H. If you're H H you can't vote and holly can't vote because she's on the block and they're dating and they're dating there're couple and Jackson is an amazing competitor he's insane it's insane he he won the most competitions out of any big brother player in a single season ever Yep that alone is Luke Perry but then on top of that he also had a six social game the fact that he like honestly the lie that He created about me is actually what ultimately made me vote for him I thought that I it showed that he was the full package and I I respect this game so much and I was like wow he got me a victim and that was a six remove so I'm GonNa vote for him no matter what manipulator we were shocked when you voted for him but at the end of the day you always talked about how like Gameplay it's about game play things personal and what he did he did he had to do get himself further yeah I would have got him out of the Comoros of polarizing so yeah people hate polarizing for sure all right listen being that houses so tough there's so many things it brings us I've done things that I'm not proud of in that house and and I'm hearing about him now and it is what it is you know like do apologize and move forward and you get you Don oh absolutely what I can't even imagine that flake thank you I just can't because if you know of anyone on the show I'm like I just can't imagine getting trolled the low to bring them back real quick so they sixteen people fifteen people and then the top two are in the finals and then they rely on jury what ten yet the ten people have devote who should win and sold Mickey made up this crazy lie about a Tommy and Tommy got voted off result but Tommy saying that he L. had so much respect for Mickey's game he voted Mickey to win Oh yeah so that's where we were surprised were like he voted for the guy that's my whole I was like I would so it was a mickey no respect for de not to continue about what the lie was yeah so he has no it's so juicy so told Clinton Nicole okay so Jackson's H H hollies on the block day can't vote there are two other people left in the house cliff in Nicole their vote is the riding the they're going to decide who stays in the house and who goes my whole pitch to clinical was if you vote to keep me the three of us can band together and go after Jackson that means holly will be gone she's a mate an amazing competitor also I think that I actually played very similar games but Jackson needs to be taken out or he'll win this game so if you choose me than the three of us can go after one person it makes so much sense not only that not only that but I will throw the H. O. H. competition so that means that one of the two of you are guaranteed to go the final three and they were all gung ho about the deal it's great but the problem was they had a final four deal with Jack in Holly and Clifford Voice to me he said honestly we didn't even expect to get to this point we thought someone would have taken him out earlier but no one got the opportunity because they're that strong of competitors so ultimately cliff Nicole were the you know Jackson made a big fat lie that I was playing both sides I was telling Clinton Nicole that I would work with them and be three verse one but I was telling Jackson that I wanted to work with him and that.

"Creating a space where girls can feel empowered to be themselves get ready for a lot of last topics on filtered by anyways you got on so crazy is Julie Chen snacky as she is on TV like I wish like the listeners could see even my face when you bring her up and as I literally melt every time someone just a presence she is God is my Gosh I'm I'm attracted to Julie Chen cheese she's like even when you're on the show you're working with her along side who whatever you look up to her like every single one of us in that house it just mesmerized everytime she would come on the city also grills you guys too you know she's like she hits Sir Chris Harrison's the same way like he has such a confident energy that when you're around and you're like damn I feel like she's like really jam probably loved you oh Julie Chen Menendez probably loved you though because you're everyone loved Tobbaco Tommy apparently like like I didn't I don't know this because I'm in the House some not watching what you guys all but my family was like Julie hugged you and she didn't really hug people the way yes you hope because you're very you're an optimistic just like positive guy who's always happy you brought so much good fun energy to that House I don't know what the house would have been without you and you're just doc I don't know you just the light on the house to me in my opinion and and be friends they want to be Aww yes this is great all right check you want me to make an audition tape because I want to be your friend I will sign I will take a site test I will do whatever it takes to be your friend now getting creepy but people have like just like natural you have an aura of energy greater than just what your physical presences the House just why this is the first time I've ever watched show it I think you're one of the only people now that had that just positively a disease start to finish extremely likable the whole time the Americas favorite Nicole I realize how cold later right from the beginning that I'm like consistent yeah killed killed thank you awesome being you that's just like I really am myself yeah yeah isn't that Nice you didn't go on if you you know you're in or you're an acting and singing and dancing you're on as a performer you were just like loved for who you were on that show I really do love that like even in the audition in the theater world I never really get hired for playing to play a different character people know that I have very specific energy very specific personality. Whatever you know what you're GonNa get when you when you hire me as I've been told in the theater community and that's kind of what I wanted to do on this show too I just WanNa be myself I wanNA play a character I that's I you know I'm an actor but I don't really know if it's a very Rickie to me because I think I'm more of I'm just being myself yeah myself to these real good thanks so now I got tom but now I'm going to challenge all that right so read because you are all that but then you walk into the House and see sixteen individuals and one of them is someone that dated someone in your family so now you have to play a character like what are you thinking when that because you have no idea right you have no idea that she's going to I mean they had to be check in how do you adapt and what was your strategy there honestly I feel like that was my whole game balancing my relationship with Christy I love her so much so it wasn't it wasn't there was no negativity between you two from break-up so you are made or there was you could get past it for yeah and we can get past together it was either tween us but is everything to me so you know on this show and the whole time I'm thinking of about she dated my aunt and my aunt my aunts all like second mothers to me Yeah my my my family's everything to me and I am just thinking about my aunt the whole time in that house and it's it was so rough to think about how is this being perceived on the outside is my favorite okay that's real like yet I'm here to play a game and right Christine I agree I love Christie so much and I was never gonNA turn my back on her in that house but we also played very a different game and it was the toughest part of my game was navigating my relationship with her or balancing my relationship with her while navigating my relationship I put the other houseguests just because I love somebody and trust somebody doesn't mean that she does right that was what the tough parts were in the house right right man it was tough I mean and what a wild thing to come out of that and then be like hey because your aunt probably didn't know that she was going to be on right or did you that we were both questioning but we we have to stop speaking after a certain point so once we hit semifinals what it's called we stop speaking okay and you know I didn't know I have no idea but I'm sure you're ended up being so proud of you because you guys did well you know like it's not like it you weren't malicious you weren't using each other you're generally like like basically your family for a little while she's kind of part of the family whatever happened happened but you too can come together and the end goal is and at the end of the day it's a game so the end goal is to get to that end so you everybody knows in the Big Brother to game you do whatever you have have to do to get to the end and if you can have someone to keep you saying to go along with you you know that they can I'm sure your family could understand that yeah they they could I I got out and they were all really supportive yeah but yeah it was it was a rough summer for my aunt who of course imagine it's rough it's got to be really I I said to her like you are my number one and I will spend the rest of my life apologizing and making it up to you if I caused you even an ounce of pain right and it did it did cause her that I feel terrible but I couldn't control the situation I was in it it was it was what it was makes me angry at like production in that way 'cause I'm like why are you doing that to people you know what is a bystander I think given the situation you handle it so well because there was no Oh it all dirty laundry exposed about the relationship into we just had this conversation I didn't know that there is any type of like grief between your family knows you're mant so Kudos to you guys for just like let's put the past blind protect our family if you protect me in this house yeah so it's wildly aggressive that is and I can't imagine like you know even in our world that we're on the show where everybody hates each other and then you have to go watch them date other people nick and you barely it's not like this eight year relationship right was eight years air together something instead of seven so I can't imagine how challenging that would be for me to be rooting for somebody in my family and be watching my ex at the same time she didn't watch she yeah okay so that makes sense you yeah we get it on my gosh yes I could I truly imagine yeah the first thing I thought was all my gosh wouldn't I saw Christie come in it's funny because in the House yes we liked down the line like when we were into the whole entire day forty-five whatever it was fifty two we like to talk about our first impressions of Each Other Day One what we thought and I I I would never have anything to contribute to that conversation because once Christie walked in the door I completely blacked out I don't remember anything from the first day nothing at all just blacked out that's it from day one in what day was it release that information it was daylight day yeah let me think so amazing numbers guy this is the first time I've watched his show the season was day eighty one actually days no-one knows and their alliance the whole time he has not watched the show I think about the eighty one days sixteen changes and no one knows that they've known each other forever how crazy it was like an answer you too she's Sh- okay so Christie is my age she's twenty nine but she dated my aunt and my aunts you know it was anyway we'll see she's my aunt's fifty years old so it was it was a big thing for the family I quit the family was very exciting optimal obviously something's here's divorced you know it was a big deal yeah yeah so you know they we spent I spent so much time with Christine and so now moving forward you guys are clearly going to be close that's gotTa be challenging in itself figure that out to eat at home but you one hundred percent right I gotta figure it out now that we're out of the House the Games all of a sudden request the Chris with time you heard it here first oh my gosh cutthroat now that's amazing all right now no I'm obsessed.

Sixty three wagons they've got like fifteen twenty of them in stock all the time all the shadow to autobahn their cool Peter says question for all dream car and track or road combination and have you driven it yet Tommy well I've driven a lot of them so I guess the that dreams been realized so I mean of the ones I know Elkhart Lake it has to be Elkhart Lake now it'd be Road America Road America my old transam car at at Road America if I'm going back to the glory days as good as it gets now I've driven I got my first proper laps at the nurburgring the North's life this year but I I would love to really be able to say I know yeah the Norge Life Ed that's what makes you do you go Jesus I want to figure this out go back and read a swift did you go with Ron Simmons from our SR Nurburg no I went it I I went with a guy named Sean Day who shipped his I twenty eleven mustang that's awesome that's made like gt four ish he had this dream to ship at their and they they filmed it and alternative but he says I'm shipping and he took it on a day trip to SPA which I didn't go on yeah but I also must do next time SPA rules but even in little those little went for ring car or whatever I mean I I came back and I told my brother I said we are going and we're GonNa Suzuki Swift this my homie ron is the I got through for for through Ross Bentley their bodies they do a thing together that's a ring school and you get to drive it on private track day with them in their cars okay so they own or nerve and they've got a big fleet and they are they're awesome okay I drove a Renault mcgann with them and their cars you can do you can driving the ring and then drive the car up the road and go to spot the in the same time car it's real cool I mean so I mean dream car you'd have to say probably G the three or something like that car was probably literally designed for it I would say my dream car is I if I had to have a dream it's actually probably a road like I love racetracks bowl like if I think about like a perfect driving day I'm not really spending that day at a racetrack I'm thinking Swiss Alps grimsel pass or susten pass one of those high passes Switzerland right at that time of year where it's green at the bottom and snowy Top right and probably in some like just really I don't know something that's real engaging like that boxster spyder I was in just now comes comes would come very close to being good in that experience something like that something just like fun Nimble and comfortable that you've enjoyed Oy the area maybe even a convertible maybe even like a nine eleven cab or something like that they have the heat gone for the snow that'd be lovely Zachary I think I think I'd go for a tracks I could preserve my life because I because I know if I was driving enjoy a little bit of loose surface I think like if think of a guardrail around Pike's peak when it was half tarmac half dirt Dowa genuinely be like the best thing in the world rally cross with mixed surface and I don't even know it matters what I'm driving as long as it's rear-wheel something like that but decent paradorn rally rallies good good thought to yeah Have you made any Mg Driving Kademi in our blue hue drift one at Laguna Okay yes that is Ah for someone that's jaded I was aided I would spend my own money to go do really yes where is it it's in a are you plug sweet sweet yeah I I the the sort that one out snow driving is some of the most fun it is you'll ever have incredible we talked about it with Justin I we'd like to do that below zero one which is the Richard Tuttle one some wherever the hell is freezing yeah you you owe me on Yo that's a good user name like that I had to decipher it like a licensed play I'm buying an old mercury grand marquee for two jeeze what would Zach consider for odd occasions to that grand marquee to make it a little more I saw a cool grand marquee on the road today Yeah Matt Silver Oh really that could work gave you see gale banks is a Marauder socal banks has like six hundred horsepower Mercury Marauder that's pretty pretty evil I will tell you a the first automotive installation I believe that gale banks ever did was in my dad's sixty seven Camaro our s s s because he did our boat that is possible that sounds about the right timeframe well later than sixty seven but he he did our boat in the seventies is before he did all the truck stop uh-huh and he had that car for about three years and it was it was a three fifty twin turbo three fifty before they were doing they were doing a little water injection no inter cooler how much power make you think he say with the boost stop it had like close to seven hundred sounds like gale bank under the Hood Hood close Gloss Love Stop but then it has a like blunt with law course four six yeah wow it's like a terminator engine it's great drove it here to the podcast and he just parked it looks like a cop and then you open the hood that was delightful yeah really really cool he's the king of usable cool for a while pumped gas yeah probably still is but I remember well now he's in diesel it's all about the diesel stuff to get the things stand is like fifteen hundred horsepower eighteen hundred horsepower two thousand horsepower twenty two hundred four it's like it's ridiculous and differential video I love his opinion on rolling pretty clean yeah his like he tries it he really he got kind of angry about it on the podcast because you're asking about the whole you know diesel rolling Cole he's like no that's you're literally making a less efficient engine and just throwing power and motivation she exhausts easy way to do yeah yeah did you you put a limited the difference was that money well spent tires at aren't hardest plastic Y- but yeah I put a Detroit trek lock different and the someone hit you up he had like didn't seem weld his whole Crown Vic and Pierre out of it yeah I drove one I drove a modified one that a guy had like gutted and seam welded and he'd really done a good job with the suspension geometry suit handled really good I mean if you want if you wanna make it silly put it LSD limited slip in it put electronic cutouts in it which I should have done but never did and then see if hotchkiss sells anything to help the hand a little bit but otherwise it's just beat the hell out of there array treated like garbage it will be fine yes Bryce says our Mountain Canyon runs a good place to start driving skills should someone goes straight to track days or a driver Being School Tommy definitely I and this isn't the fun police definitely go to track driving schools I mean every other thing you do when you go to learn it whether it's you know skiing you you go to an instructor and you say teach me the fundamentals you can learn it on your own it just takes a lot longer and so I always say if you have to make to get pretty proficient if to make you know thousands of mistakes so do that go that's right Okara is so powerful yeah whenever explains why but you you you're making those mistakes four hundred dollars a day or something like that and then you can stack those days on top of it each other and so forth so the fundamental and there's a lot of people that are become pretty decent and getting around the track and have horrible fundamentals and so it's money well spent to to spend some time at some track days to get some fundamentals instructing I mean it's weird it's one of the sports at the high levels every other sport at the S. level Wimbledon golf there's coaches and so it's this weird deal where it was like I got to figure it out myself the people that figure it out themselves so the ones that have gone the furthest now there's a lot more information available that was my advantage when I started out he didn't have Internet you didn't have this it was early days of data we have sims I mean you can all that and even if you if you can't afford track days you know get some you can get sim time one way or the other to get get the fundamentals and then and then go out to a carbon I would say a couple of days well at least our basic you know two or three days problem with going to canyons and you can you do trial and error and you learn the problem is the consequence is yeah are are high in writing with people that haven't done a lot of stuff I know they're in trouble a long time before they know they're in trouble yeah and that's the dangerous part for themselves or for others you'd have a spin on a track that could be going down a hundred foot or two hundred foot cliff on Canyon and how many times early in your driving on the how did that happen yeah exactly and I later learned how it happened but okay lot of words in this question but the question for me greg is what is the best eighty thousand dollar driving experience love the Lotus of Aura love the seven one eight km ass corvette see eight sounds interesting Eighty k. what is or alternatives that you could also throw the foreign there you could throw a shelby gt three fifty are in there you can throw a you into nine eleven in their lot options boise this is where you your your savant Shit not demons rampant in in so thing is with the four hundred is basically a new old accurate aiming s is not quite as fast in the numbers but it's made really really well it's you know screwed together really it's a corvette back now but it's still corvette so like I would probably go porsche or Lotus I think but it's not mind blowing And I think I would maybe people can find some good settings for it I don't know I got I got a hold I got probably I dunno twelve to fifteen laps of Thunder Hill West and then probably an hour half street time in it it's overwhelmingly good the ride quality's great the grip is great the the brakes are very good the gearbox is not quite there I hope it will be it was better on the track than the street it was it works better at full throttle and full breaking than it does so it's the the cockpit the drive is real aggressive fighter plane hairband you know hit engine cockpit you know what I mean dot com it's easy all you need is a microphone a connection to the Internet

"Acid engine into a car and run illegally if you run cats which is Kinda cool they'll see the the market you get crazy people and I it will be someone that just wants to do to prove can be done yeah which is singer and then it'll eventually triplets way down it being viable and then someone will say hundred thousand I can do that for sixty or you know and we'll singers got a lot of copycats now you can you can get most of a singer for less than half the money the thing about singer when I drove one of his guy I think I don't know if he knows this but I drove David neals car when it was before it was delivered I went out there with Dan banks my crew chief and we were getting a tour and Shaimaa say hey driving my dumping this guard take what what struck me kind of like what we talked about her the cars are too fast there's too much grip that car was perfectly scaled for the road yeah and so that's the thing you know I I won't say it'll never be mainstream but it'll take the enthusiast group to to move the Martin and demands and someone will someone will go that way with a mass produced new car and you're getting there a little bit because it used to be like when people try to go down market and the aspirational brands Porsche Mercedes one it was a cheap Mercedes Porsche when I drive mccown I don't think I don't say this or or a came in I don't see this cheap Nashi more they say this is a small port yeah and my wife likes small big car so that's part of it because people don't want to be in the small cars from a status standpoint right it's cheap and so if you can get over that status hurdle which with the job I had the bottom spider all week and it does not feel like a downgrade in quality from nine eleven it's smaller and the nine to is is is really a nice step forward so this matches a little more with the outgoing car but the less it's screwed together really tight and it's made of like really nice stuff and the fact that it's like not as fast as the turbo motors like it doesn't bother me at least six p like just good death like what's what's not to like good balance great card do you do you think that because power used to be really hard to get to extract from a car that then when it became a little easier in the nineties especially now with turbo charging and more oem cars coming with force induction everyone really excited and it was like like enthusiast like Oh awesome we can finally have power easily that we've always wanted and it's drifted away from suspension and handling and then you have people like us who kind of get to experience a lot more that's out there and go hey I think things are getting too fast it's not actually is fun because you can't use it very much let's drift back to handling it balance you know it's like if you look at am gee up those have just more of everything they've the early Jeez were more or less L. power straight line yeah and so now they're they're really well rounded so I I think everyone gets to choose but until people say a that's too much in the mainstream not going because they don't they don't understand that I didn't understand how important it was for a long time until I did a back to back test with the one hundred fifty sounds so via the mainstream like just sees more power more it just just dragging so that's the point is when you're looking on paper I used to I used to have that the table in the front of road and track memorized and it was every car they test it was zero to sixty it was stopping distance it was lateral acceleration I had probably mild in so I still remember the two cars that were tied for the highest lateral acceleration it was a coon tosh point eight five two gs and I think a three eight five point the three eight wow suburban with flat tires you know the I remember very distinctly my twenty ten Ford Raptor would to a point eight six Blau which is particularly good for a truck but it's very contact patch and a really wide travel ah the point is people in in the comparison wars more is better better better in so you need ah voices like yours where you you really rave about how much fun it is to drive yeah eventually that moves the needle Moore's indefinitely not not better meat especially if you had to make something bigger and heavier to to to to add stability and whatever because you've now thrown so much horsepower at it I don't it doesn't it it just cancel each other out ends ends up being less fun but again how most people use their car and so some of these big heavy things are great to drive around yeah we'll have mean heavy does also equate to luxury in a Lotta ways if you drive like you've had a go in four G. not right not the road race car obviously but the but not the road card ever the roker it's very light and it has not much installation but it's feels almost kind of tinny you go we'll this doesn't feel expensive even though the tennis is why it's so expensive because it's also thin that's that's an inter- I was thinking about it coming in here that's an interesting point because that's a different metric of of the experience in so cars are way faster down there used to be but none of them feel quite as they feel as fast but like an early turbo yeah the way the turbo lights and it just it feels faster than a car with fifty more horsepower yeah there has me fun yeah and so so there's one of these things where it needs you can't tell someone what what they should like but some of them are guided by voices like yours and some are guided by you know sales people in marketing materials and so forth so if people understand stood like Colin Chapman about how important every single Graham was then they'll put up with that they'll say okay no problem you know and so people just want their ipod to see their phone to connect and you know what I mean a the mainstream does and that's why I think we really have to look to these niche manufacturers and hope that the the supercar people and and the people who are good at sports cars keep doing it they're doing like porsches shifter and pedals are so good in the manual cars that like please don't deprive us of that like he just got the drive his first vintage Ferrari last week and which is which is various three Oh eight gt four okay is the best one of the Best I've ever felt that just touches it quickly it's just so good I I want I want a uh I five fifty five fifty yeah our all our all five fifty s when did you start I you might have been able to get a five fifty with F one I think okay but moving lows to the five seven fives are Wa yeah a five seven five and a stick as expensive but five fifteen is stick is an awesome car right you should want one because it's the right car yes and it is dealing light full yeah the most the saddest thing about Ferrari non making manuals is that they were so good at it yep like that's the thing like thereof so fucking theatrics anyway they're steering wheel bullshit I'm surprised they haven't Porsche almost went too far and then and the nine eleven ours like Oh yeah people pay more for this while they saw him for the way people flipping those things for eight hundred they went oh hang on we need a we weena cut this this isn't the other people are not going to be making that that flipper cash we need to cut right now it's amazing how if you go back to I think it was what was the the white I see I'm the nine nine nine nine seven nine thousand seven he was that the one that was white was the picture car that showed up probably it was the first one that launched white cars before then there was no sense thing is white hardly white cars in that car looked so beautiful and trade what do you mean launched white cars it they're not beverly every everything was silver and black doc is my Po fucking silver there's no come on I guess some you can get custom shop stuff you mean like that like the two thousand seven gt three yes yeah and the whole body in white race car kind of look yeah but no-one ordered expensive cars in white really again and I remember when I bought I loved it but then I read I read that the most common color of cars at that time was white but I think he was cheap cars luxury cars taking about it you make a good point Sir I'm trying to picture ninety late mid ninety s to mid two thousand cars in white and I'm actually he kind of having trouble Diablo's not a lot of white three sixties three fifty five's no fucking white four thirties very very little the gt any is there even one in white I don't even know that's a good point wow I mean I've never heard that that way see that in in white for while you see a lot of red cars and I think it was the Ferrari backlash and also people got scared of the Cops Oh is that a white career G. T. we on one is that it maybe it's a wrap wims weekly White Porsche Carrera G T heading auction will now I know why they're not white that's not good enough car is in white doesn't work there lines in most cars unless it's nighttime under fog under the perfect perfect streetlight career GT. It's all about that silver over terra cotta that's what you need there I read this is good redneck red is good too this is believed to be the only car of the twelve hundred seventy made that is painted white yeah so yeah so this one yeah have you driven those before I I drove the gentleman who's Garage in Malibu Oh yeah we went out there and we and I'd met him so I knew him but we shut up with people you know and this time he was the largest customer in America and so he had just all these there was three sixteen times three sixty seasons dollars follies and then gt and then he had to Craig tease his and hers for no one's allowed to drive my wife's but I want you to I would just to feel the difference between the two years in the clutch so I have an updated clutch miles on or something the clutch was slightly different from afford oh five what was the difference was easier it was easier to get muffed line the only time I ever drove when you just let it out without giving it any gas at all and it was the worked that might have been the newer one maybe it was a newer I don't remember actually what you're was it was fucking cool though we we all mm yeah out through Malibu it's one of the coolest cars ever made yeah Oh yeah the I I told the story on one of the Robert Dower specials has called decades of disruption but I remember the first time I saw a a career at ut I heard it I I was that The Coffee Bean Malibu this is in probably oh five oh four or five and I hear this noise I'm like what is that it looks like a time trial by just those they're they're so amazing buying one like what the year before the nine eighteen came out would have been the best investment you can make because they instantly doubled and you own a karate take one day one day you're not for me I'm I'm tapped out for them no thanks I mean no I mean but the faster than you can yeah I'm not I can't catch up to that level a car that's gone son give me your four favorite classics that that you think you're you you still think you have a shot at at buying yeah that are that are that are reaching totally I want an eighties Ferrari I haven't decided which one yet I I don't want to try a Mondiale Jason Kameda tells me that the Mondale is actually the one to buy and he actually knows but I enjoyed the three eight drove actually and I think I think that could be are you can put five thousand or six thousand miles on just enjoy it and then get your back do more portions just more than nine nine three maybe I don't know and then another skyline you build you build your recession lists you know when you're buying lists I'm so tapped out I I bought this Lamborghini and and I I can't have anything else look how nice about this car do I so I tough one thousand nine hundred eighty montiel eight if you pull up the nineteen eighty nine Montiel tea which it's substantially prettier looking that you picked bad one who has a thing for Montiel's is Peter Baron who's a team owner team owner out of Florida he'll get a white a white convertible collection of Mondale couple by C one like every cars and coffee and I asked you about it so Montiel T- is the three eighths it has a trans excuse me a longitudinal engine so it has basically what became the three forty eight power rain it has a longer wheelbase though and it has power steering okay so as a as a car that you could like drive around the city and put put a bunch of miles on they actually supposedly Dr substantially better than the regular three eight three twenty eight that's all that.

And other people starting to think that way in the idea to go to the next to me that is the fun of the business today. Right because I liked to be disruptive. I like to be breakthrough. And I like to do what the competition doesn't do and be ahead of your head. How much the team work how much it's all about. It's all about the people, you need incredible people who believe in you and believe in what you wanna do and are passionate and want to. I I need these people to bring me ideas. Also. Right. And when I give them an idea, I want them to take my in make it even better, of course. So it's it's all about teamwork. Yes. You rub double. I mean, you just listed off the who's who of everyone that everyone wants to be people that have Warner close people that have been admirers people that have been part of your journey. I was actually signed to Tommy Mottola, actually. So he into Leah. You know, we're literally like stepparents in New York almost to me right when he was running CASA Blanca right next door to the Louis Vuitton store on on on on the avenue. And you know, what's the best piece of advice that you receive? Leave from all of these people whether you even from gee-gee now or Tommy or Quincy Jones. Yes. Tommy, and I very close because. Tommy ni-. Actually, we live next to each other. Okay. We see each other every day. Okay. So in a we we're we're good. We're good balance to each other. But Tommy's got a lot of experience in the music world yet from Araya to ta- Leah too. I mean. He. Yeah. He found jaylo. Yes. Ricky martin. Yes. Gloria Estefan, and he ran Michael Jackson's life for a long time. Yeah. So Tommy gives me a lot of advice on how important it is to stay true to yourself because that was the advice he would give to Mariah the that's what he did the advice he gave to Lia in helping her become. Arguably the number one. Blatt and superstar in the world. Yes, stay true to yourself believe in what you believe in don't sway from it and milk it while you can make hay while the sun for sure so I mean, it's Tommy's a genius when it comes to business and music and celebrity, and we're partners and businesses together. And I look up to him for a lot of advice and then to Leah. I mean, she's an entity onto ourselves. Yes. Yes. She is. It's it's a great relationship with. That's amazing. Would you if you if you had to give advice to the entrepreneurs that are listening, would you would you would you just pass that advice through be true to yourself? I that's the advice. I give to other people. Well, because I do believe in it. But Tommy solidified it in a way that came from the viewpoint of hitmaker. Right. Someone who made hits. Yes. And I'm saying it through the advice of fashion person. So, you know, the two things I love in my life are fashioned music yet. So if I take the fashion advice from myself, right? And I take the music advice from Tom. It happens to be the same because it dovetails while that's amazing of if you could trade jobs.
