I often review my influences in essentially. I literally went to prep school so to me. I have a prep perspective. Yes no question about that. But also being the first generation of hip hop and living in the bronx with my grandparents particularly the south bronx boom. That was my other influence.

That is just a killer part. It's like takes forever to get you know because the thing is you have to. You have to mark every single like flaw or stain or anything like that.

Is i only want to do local pickup because karaoke allied. I'm terrified to try to package. This china yeah. Yeah yeah yeah totally especially this year to with like the way the The usps has been in terms of Just kind of being delayed and and items getting lost and so then you add on top of that like like you said years are valuables fragile so you got to be real careful with that exactly so again.

"Serving in the military. They came home along with thousands of military dogs. Those dogs served in the war and we're honored upon their return. They trained for eight hours a day comes last, including mine Thursday, a day that goes by that I don't think that that's from the documentary from the military channel about dogs who served in World War two. Now there's a Children's book about war dogs. It takes a dog's point of view about serving in the war. The book is called Major, A Soldier Dog. It's by Trevor Jones, who's with us. We also have with US majors owner, said Moore, who was just a boy when his dog went off to war. I want to start with you, Trevor, before we get to major story helped put things in perspective. How many dogs served in World War two. And how are they chosen? Well, when the war started, we were suddenly fighting a war on two fronts. And the thought was, we need to free up soldiers to do as much as possible. And so there were a bunch of American civilians that thought dogs could really help us out. They could carry bandages. They could detect landmines they could patrol Facilities against sabotage, and there was only one really big problem with that idea is that the U. S military had not a single dog and no dog training program whatsoever. So what they did. Was. They asked the American people to donate their pets. They're they're animals at home and donate those to the war effort. It's a programme called Dogs for defence that they came up with. And so people did this by the thousands by the tens of thousands. The figures are not exact. But it would not be wrong to say that there were over 20,000 dogs donated to this program and all by American civilians and their their pets at home. Sid more. I want to welcome you. Your dog Major served in the war. How old were you? And what made you decide to volunteer Major? I was five years old when we donated them. People were sacrificing to maintain the war effort on but somehow that just rubbed off on me and my dad had suggested that we Donate the dog. Where were you living at the time? Said We were living in Walkerton, North Dakota, Do you remember the day Major left? Oh, gosh. Ahh Train pulled up and This boxcar door open with a bang. And some guy hollered words that dog we've got. We've got about three minutes. Let's go. You know, on on DH there, they tried to pick up the dog and put him In this kennel in the boxcar. On the dog was struggling, and they bit one of the guys that was trying to load him up and my dad said, Hey, wait a minute. Just just puts it up there. In the candle on the hill Call major and he'll jump right in there. And so that's what we did on. That's been so sad to say goodbye to your dog. Yeah. That it was terrible. I was hugging him and they started hollering at me. Let's go. We gotta get out of there Get you know Some guy reached in and grabbed me by the arm and pulled me out of there and shut the Cal door banging the boxcar door. Shut on the way my dog went, that was it. I didn't get him back after the war, said We're going to get to that. I want to go back to Trevor to ask him one part of his book. We're going to comeback. Tio Trevor Jones in your book, You tell the story of major In your book, you place major in Italy, but we really don't know where he served. Where did dogs go? Dogs went just about everywhere. But that's one of the pieces of the record keeping that wasn't well done. We know that a bunch of dogs did serve in Italy in World War two. They were also very useful in the Pacific and scout dogs like major what they do. Is they going on a patrol and detecting ambush before it happened, using their keen sense of smell and hearing, and then the soldiers Good Carl Colin and artillery strike Or they could go around the other way or they could retreat and dogs were really valuable in the war effort in that way. Now, as I mentioned 75 years ago, World War two officially came to an end. Soldiers and dogs came home said You were reunited with major. Do you remember that day? Oh, yes. Yeah. You know, I don't think the dog was just happy to see me and glad, glad to be back and stuff. But I was a little distant from him because I was so ashamed. Of my part in getting him sent away on that affected me a little bit. Hey, mostly hung around with my brother. But anyway, we got him back. Major received an honorable discharge. What was that about? Hey, did ah, He got a discard the discharges are very rare. I think there's about 5200 or so. Of those discharges on? No. I had some other papers with that things like what to feed him or what he's been eating. My dad liked to show off the tricks that the dog could do it stuff that's that's about all right. Remember about Trevor? It's remarkable. The effort the government took to reunite dogs with their owners did they have to be rehabilitated? They really paid a lot of attention to this idea that the dogs were loans from the American people that these were not military assets and they owed That debt back to the family. So what happened was that the end of the war when they didn't need the dogs anymore? They sent them back to Fort Robinson. Nebraska was the the last remaining dog training center in the nation, and they d train them so that they could become pets again. So they went through a week's long course because one of the things that they train them when they were military dogs. They could only be touched by their handlers, so they had to re socialize them so they could deal with groups of people again. And so if you were like, said, and you donated your dog a couple of years before, and your dog survived the war, not all dogs did. But major did. Then they would re socialize that dog at Fort Robinson, and then it would get shipped back to you at government expense in your dog would show up again, and the records show that they worked really hard to make that happen. They track down people who had moved over the course of the war. And they you know, found those new addresses, and they they wanted those dogs reunited with their owners. The book is called Major. A Soldier Dog. It's by Trevor Jones. And it tells the story of sit more who have also been hearing his dog major served in World War two. I want to Thank you both for being with us. Thank you. Thank you..

"Dot Nebraska Dot Gov and put war dachshund of the search bar and you're gonNA find. Find some images of what that actually looked like what kind of dog was major and we're all breeds. Welcome. In the beginning of the war they were desperate. So they took just about anything I mean they took Great Danes they took poodles they took they took whatever they could get and what they discovered with some dogs were not so effective at others very funny story that they had a bunch of Dalmatians and they realized omission showed up really well on the battlefield we're very easy to spot, and so they got this idea they would die all black. So they don't do any big pools of die and then they figured out that once it rained that die ran and then the dog started turn to light blue. It just didn't work. To rethink that equation, right? Yeah. by the end of the war, they were much more selective and so they really they had German shepherds and they had what they called a border collies, and that's what major major border Collie and a lot of the scouts in oral history interviews. People that served with these dogs at the border. Collie was all around best scout dog because they were chest had a ton of energy really strong willpower and we're very very smart and. So That's what that's what the actual major was and you can in the Children's book, we have a picture at the back. You can see majors doggy discharged, and you can see a picture of actual sit and actual major as well as the NCAA illustrations of what they live, Lang such an incredible uplifting story Trevor Jones thank you so much for sharing it with us.

"And local via the auto collision specialist to studios joined this morning by author and CEO and director of the Nebraska State Historical Society. Trevor Jones Trevor Welcome to the show. Thank you. This is such an hour welcome departure from all of the sturm and Drang, and all the worries and concerns over covert nineteen and overheated political season. I. Just love this story, but tell us a little bit about the Dogs for defense program and how it came to be. So it's it's to be talking about this on international dog. Day and also the seventy fifth anniversary of the underworld horseshoe What happened in World War Two is we've the United States entered the war and we were suddenly fighting a war on two fronts and we did every soldier we could get. The idea was that dogs could help that they could carry bandages, detect landmines on trolls, guard installations, but there was one big problem with that ideas that we have. No dogs we had no training program, the military. Didn't have any dogs and so their solution was to ask the American people to donate their pets there at home and then put them in a crate and ship them off on the train to Western Nebraska and train them to be soldiers, and that's what the American people did and by the thousands they gave up their pets for the cause of World War Two, and then those dogs went and fought in every theater of the war they fought all over the world, Europe and the Pacific and in ever wearing between. Nebraska, of course is where the word dog program was based. Okay. So where were the dogs actually deployed and again you referenced the their capabilities but what were some of the highlights in terms of how they assisted in the war effort? Well. One of the things that dogs were absolutely best data was going on patrols with soldiers and they were particularly good at this and in the Pacific where they were fighting in jungle environments where it was really hard to see and what the dogs could do is they hear better than we do and they definitely smell better than we do and they could miss out they could literally sniff out ambushes before they happened, and so if you are patrolling added dog, it would warn the handler that there was somebody up ahead of there was an ambush so they could retreat or go around or calling in artillery strike, whatever they had to do and the that fought with dogs. Credited with saving hundreds if not thousands of American lives by by going on patrols, you know in the bonds between the handlers and the dogs must've been inpenetrable. Important things that comes out of world. War Two. So they came up with a technical manual that was for dog training that really has become sort of guy post a move. We've improved trade cents then but if you think about how we use service dogs today, how we use military dogs today, all of that really has its origins in the doctrine. Program in World War Two and one of the core tenants of that was your dog needs to be your partner that you can't operate from a position of fear. The dog can't be afraid of you to work. Well, it has to be a partnership and that was a something they learned in in nineteen, forty three in the something we still do today. At the end of the war what happened to those dots? Well. This is one of my favorite parts of the story is that at the end of the war, the they sent the dog back to Fort Robinson Nebraska and not every doctored is some some were killed. But surviving dogs got sent back and they spent time training them to become pets. Again, D train them from being soldiers to be in pets, and so then they ship them off at government expense, and if you had eater dog a couple of years before you get your dog back at the end of the war and it came with its own little ducky discharge paper said your dog. Honorably served and was veteran and and you know you got your dog back and the the US government felt very strongly that these animals have been alone and not not a gift by the American people and they had to return them and I think that this is why I wanted to do this book, and also why wanted the Children's book is because? When you talk about patriotism and sacrifice those abstract concepts. But when you say, would you give up your dog to help your country that makes it really concrete very fast because we love our pets their family. For me it's unimaginable. Of course, I have a year and a half, a Shitzu puppy who is a terrorist basically all my shoes but I can't I can't imagine giving them up. But you know if he could help and if he quit eating the shoes, I would certainly do it for the grid. A. Six, forty, three now thirteen ten, kfi thirteen, ten, Kfi K. dot com trevor. Jones is director CEO of History Nebraska. He is an award winning author of numerous books as well as articles about museums in American history and has worked as a museum curator exhibition designer and educator his newest book major a soldier dog. All right. So let's talk about the process by which you put this book together because although it is a fictional book, you probably did everything in your power to ensure that it was and is historically accurate. Absolutely, that was really important all the images. It's beautifully illustrated by a woman naming high and but they're all all those images are based on historical pictures from our collection. We know what? Training looked like we know that the dogs looked like we really tried to base it there and the other really true thing about it is that major was a real dog. It's better dog named Major. It's told from his perspective and he was given up by a real little boy named. and sit is still living and one of the things that I did was interview him for this book and when he was five, he gave up his major to go fight in World War Two and for Sid that was the defining moment of his childhood something from Your Childhood Remember Really Well Sid Remember this today it was seventy seven years ago and your members at like it was yesterday and I'm not giving away the ending to say that major came home it was a happy ending he served in World War Two and and major came Back, and he and sit or a reunited. But one of the interesting things is that SID is spent much of his career in the military as an officer and he traces his own service to that moment that he gave up this doc because he felt like if his dog could sacrifice for the country, he owned his country as well and so that's how important that experience was when he was five years, old friends life and how special this must have been for sid when you approached him to do this book and basically honored Him and his service. Yeah, I think he he loves it. He thinks it's absolutely fantastic. This is this is a during that too many people know about World War Two. The that many Americans did this gave up their their animals and I think that that SID is really glad that this can get shared on the wider stage. Do any remnants from that war DOC program remain at Fort Robinson today. Yeah. Yes and and this is how we we started. This project is we operate for Robinson, historic sites you can go and does it it it's a Indian wars fort that that also played a role in World War Two and you can go and walk to the areas where the word training program was we have interpretive signs you could artifacts you can see dog houses, callers, uniforms worn by the soldiers there in our Ziam, and so we've got loads of resources, and if you WanNa see some pictures of the actual doc training program, what it looked like to see six thousand dollars altogether. Once you can go to the website history.

Colorado's Voice Mornings Gail live and local via the auto collision Specialists Studios, and of course A. Lot of contention and controversy over all the staging but you know what? That's kind of what Republicans and Democrats do right the party leaders butt heads I, mean that's just normal operating procedure move along nothing new to see here first lady Melania trump in my humble opinion elegant poised as always argued I her husband's re-election from the White House grounds Oh untrusted. Using it as a political setting in a political year. I Love Maria Romo on Fox business, and Monday. She said something that I thought was I don't know kind of Freudian slips showing but. I get it now because she said, politics are just getting more political well in. They truly are because nobody can make a move without someone on the other side of the aisle absolutely losing. So. First. Lady Melania trump saying that the president is indeed fighting for Americans referencing of the coronavirus pandemic saying I know many people are anxious and some feel helpless adding I. Want you to know you are not alone. Then you had secretary of State Mike Pompeo doing something rather unprecedented. Weighing in from Jerusalem Oh hugh the Pearl Clutching Faux outrage. We'll get to that in just a few. So, first lady praised those you know who you are you deplorables. Who elected her husband in two thousand sixteen saying we have not forgotten the incredible people who were willing to take a chance on a businessman who had never worked in politics, of course, calling on the party faithful to award him a second term. She also acknowledged of the civil and Rachel unrest that has swept across the country in recent recent months calling for peace and unity. Now trump as previously mentioned and Mr. Pompeii according to a piece by Alex leary out of the Wall Street Journal. Well, they both bucked tradition with their remarks. It's not at all typical I. Think we could say it's atypical for a sitting secretary of state to give political speeches particularly while on a diplomatic mission overseas and well political activity generally not conducted on. White. House grounds. Yeah. He actually wrote that in this piece it's awful. Now, Mr Peres speech extolled the foreign policy decisions that have been made by president trump including the deadly strike on. Iranian. Military leader, Sulejmani and moving the US embassy to Jerusalem saying president trump has put his America first vision into action. It might have not made him popular in every foreign capital, but it worked now I don't think that president trump will be winning the international congeniality award anytime soon. Democratic led congressional committee but that's his GIG. That's not his job. Right? Democratic led congressional committee. Of course, said, it's going to open an investigation into whether Mr Pompeo speech recorded during a trip aimed at urging Arab countries to forge formal ties with Israel. Well, they're alleging that it violated believe it's the Hatch Act of federal regulations or State Department guidelines on political activity State Department for its part saying, no, we're not paying. For it not bearing any costs in connection with a PAO's appearance and basically said, we were in Aruba at the time State Department saying, no, we weren't involved. We had nothing to do with this much of the program. In case you missed it I just want to bring you up to speed with. Reader's Digest version of ninety two of the Republican National Convention most of the program surprise a I mean, surprisingly at all. I mean. Though it is an unconventional conventional season, we're still going to see the same types of pomp and circumstance that we've come to know. So well during a convention season. Much, the program was divided between praise for president trump's economic policies. Remember trump economy. Seems like forever ago. Done it. And a focus on issues such as abortion, and of course, criticizing the mainstream news media attacks on Democratic presidential nominee carried over from Monday night with speakers warning he would raise taxes will that indeed is is intent and limit business expansion. Now the focus on the economy underscored one of president trump's strengths heading into November despite trailing Mr Biden overall in national polls. Yeah. and. We all view those bowls with a pillar of salt. President gets higher marks on the economy why he delivered on the economy he did what he said he was going to do. Biden campaign. Fired off a statement. Like as many failures throughout the covid nineteen pandemic Republicans and the trump campaign are trying to use their convention to create. An alternate reality and distract from the crisis they created. You know. It's just going back into the old playbook, and again, this is not meant to be a full on pejorative assault on the Democratic Party because once again, referencing when I said earlier, all of this is standard operating playbook procedure and both sides of the aisle do it. President trump made his first appearance early in the program and a video. He said he was issuing a pardon for one convention speaker. John Ponder Mr Ponder was convicted of bank robbery and became an advocate for villain rehabilitation. Mr. Ponder appeared with former FBI agent. This was amazing I mean it was poignant. He appeared with the former FBI agents who arrested him this in a showcase of president trump's work on criminal justice reform. My greatest failure said Mr Ponder led to my greatest success just after ten pm eastern president trump again appeared from the White House for a naturalization ceremony featuring five new American Citizens Democrats other administration credits wasted no time just decrying the move saying he was politicizing government function and that is policies during the pandemic have shut down most illegal immigration avenues. White House spokesperson of course, dismiss the idea that there was anything at all inappropriate about that ceremony. But there were some other speakers as well. Again, following that we are family narrative to Mr Trump's children gave well, I thought some some of the most moving speeches lashing out at the news media and political opponents had tiffany trump saying the contest is a fight for freedom versus oppression. Eric Trump said the Democrats want to de-fund, destroy and disrespect our law enforcement..

Every you know Brian and I used to get together trevor every year at his house for Fourth of July. Because a Brian's right across from a big mall in Atlanta Lenox Mall and they used to do a really nice fireworks display. Did you know from Brian's Scott Hi condo there you could get got a great view, but they They quit a couple years did I'm so sad about yeah, but every now and then they'll kick one off like thanksgiving. They still might do one it just no on the fourth, but let's do it for Thanksgiving. What, but yeah anyway. Sad because I really enjoyed that a relief from their fire up the grill, watch the fireworks from the comfort of an air conditioned house. Nice. Dogs hated, so I always try to get out of town. I'll take my dogs up to camping somewhere and we'll just go hang out in the middle of nowhere. It's awesome. My dog is seventeen and right on the verge of totally deaf now so. Then when she could hear, but now she's like whatever. Yeah Hey you're here. This is great. Yeah, we're hanging out everything's fine now. She can nap on a running vacuum. She's still. Bothered by absolutely yeah, Trevor. How's your week? Been Man House thing going for you. You give me and super busy. We just opened up patio a couple of weeks ago, so doing a lot of work outside. Okay trying to get all that situated, so we got more space for everybody to hang out now. Are you still totally closed inside? Yeah, we're not letting anybody in, but we do have bathrooms inside, so you gotTa. Go End one way in one way out, but we've got a pretty nice big. Big Patio you do. Yes, it's very nice patio. They're very colorful. As a recall, it is very bright. Sunshiney Brian. How about you man? How was your week I? It was it was pretty eventful. one of my favorite nearby to me places to go hang out. Drink some locally made beer and eat some nice food sticks reopen this week and hopefully stay open for a while and I went over there, and had a bunch of Rahman and local mushroom robotic, and a had their their kung-fu. Super Dry Rice lager so I was quite excited about that. He'd been months since I've been there. They make the entire time I think they were to go. Maybe and I also got into some drink your seller, Hashtag. Drink your seller. Of course you did I drink a redbrick twentieth anniversary which I think is six years old. At this point in time, I saw that held up really well, and I also drank a heavy seas below decks, cabernet barrel, aged barley wine from two, thousand, twelve I love red wine, barrel, aged beer, and that held up really well as well was it ninety three brewers that we got that Cabernet barrel stout. Beer actually prompted us to get him on the show. Yes, we drank. That gotTA. It went after them. Yes, that was good, yeah! Good Week Man. You know fairly easy going as things are. Still you know some things are trickling open here, so we're doing what we can. We went out to a reformation Berry which their their home is is in my hometown, Woodstock, Georgia and but they opened a couple new locations, actually in one is in Smyrna Georgia we went and checked it out a little satellite brewery there and a cool little spot. You know smaller spot there but had a good time. Check that out also went were our studio is those have been listening for a while? We're actually inside of a ironmonger brewing here in Marietta and in this complex now it's a full alcoholic entertainment complex. Viking alchemists meteorologist recently opened tapper here, so we stopped by and saw our friend's Viking, alchemists and We checked it out. You know we sip. Some means some blueberry ones heavily blueberries very fan of that absolutely, but you know along the lines Brian talking about going to reformation this that inspired our instagram poll for this week our trip to reformation so. Trevor, I ask your opinion on this our instagram. Paul was. Do you like live music when you visit a brewery? What's your opinion on that? I, do I do like live? Okay, it's gotta be the right environment, though if you just kind of throw somebody in the middle of the tap room that can be a little bit too much because it's just like everything packed in the same space. Yeah, but if you got a place for it, yeah, definitely I! Hear You I. Get that Brian. What's your what's? What's your opinion on music in your brewery I? Don't mind live music as long as a soundest writes a lot of times, I go to a place in. You're completely drowned outs, and your ears bleed after he listen live music, and sometimes those covers. Aren't that good, so are a little too loud in there, not good enough to be that loud so I mean. All apologies to any music. Okay, it was so. Here's the thing Brian, you. You add added the caveat that if it's right the volumes right not that. I don't know that when you put someone live out. They don't set the volume to medium. Live, users just don't do that. It's not going to happen. I I'm going to stand firm on I. AM opposed to it. I'm not a fan of music upper hurries because when I go to berries. I normally go to hang out and talk with France. So that's the thing that gets me is because it's always out just like the coffeehouse you know the coffeehouse singers there. They're allowed in usually for coffee or something like that. It's usually social thing for me so I'm going to hang out and do that, so I am, but the masses Brian. What do the masses say about this? So our Instagram Paul? Do you like live music when you visit a brewery sixty four percent of people? People said yes, they do so. That's it so about two thirds, which still a third of people, still a decent chunk that that are on my team here I'm guessing the volume has something to do with it because I don't mind in some cases. I've really enjoyed live music, but the sound is so important. I enjoy live music when I'm going for for the music like that has to be my goal, if I'm going out to have a beer or going out to have a cup of coffee I probably want things at a volume that I can have a conversation now to be fair I know you also do not like it. When radio stations are Xm stations play play live music verse. Studio Gimme that he wants. A studio cooked up. Yeah absolutely some of the best albums are total live, Val, I know that you know. I had a friend that used to his. He loved to get DVD's of concerts and he just keep more than he had back. When DVD changes like a six disc changer was a cool thing, he just loaded up with different concert DVD's like on a Saturday and he'd hang out drinking all day. Let concerts rotate, and now my thing, but there's no such it doesn't sound bad. Tim. I think we have to get into the beers a week now. All Right Brian. Crack open a cold one. It's the truck in tap fear of the week. Craft Beer and food trucks in downtown Woodstock truck and tap dot Com as.

"Thanks for joining us today and I am here with my co host. Mike co-pilot all the way from eastern Canada Mr David Morale Listen David. How are you doing today? What's crackle concurs tragic crackle and yet things are good on the east coast here? It is very actually I got to tell you something. This is really interesting they are I. I've had the flu for the last last few days. I think it's called the flu. I was sick anyway and I never get sick like literally never get sick and so I was holed up. I was a shut in for three days. I did not come out of my house. I stayed in my house for three days kept. The blinds closed did not come out. I didn't didn't even see light. Saw Nothing stayed at my house like a shut in like a had agoraphobia to not go anywhere then. This is a true story Corey Story Corey Story Lori True Story Corey. I go down the stairs <music>. I go out the front door my house and Lo and behold nineteen fifties newark now. I'm thinking I'm caught in a time warp. I I don't know somewhere I've lost time. I went into a black hole time traveler. I'm Satoshi Nakamura. That's what I was thinking when I went outside because it was it was literally one thousand nine hundred eighty s newark on my street. The shooting a movie they changed the whole street to look like nineteen fifties. New York did change the front of the buildings they have these nineteen fifties cars out front. They have like I dunno soda machines they have like people in Fidora's and they've literally transformed the street to look like nine hundred even changed the street signs corey. They even changed the street signs that said East fifty six at tried to make it likely old nineteen fifties Newark it was it was mental and so anyways that was my confusion you can imagine in your little groggy. I mean sleep and you've been holed up for three days. You've been shut in been in the dark. Wake up you walk outside your little bit dizzy little groggy and all of a sudden you're nineteen fifties. New York is the weirdest thing so that's that's what I dealt with today and it was a little weird so so as an anachronism from around the time I did think I thought I time traveled for a split second. It was like what happened. What's going on here but it's apparently early to movie with Justin Timberlake and Samuel L. Jackson which is strange Combo but so there I guess Justin Timberlake was right outside my door this morning? I didn't even know very cool. Well just as cool as at Dave since you're talking about a movie set that guy this is a great segue into what we're going to talk talk about today. The guest we have today is a once Hollywood movie movie editor turned real estate agent and now Youtube Star Trevor Jones and this guys just awesome Trevor Jones Mr Youtube Star Trevor Jones. This is going to be a good one because we're gonNA talk about the changing real estate environment. I don't know as real estate agent. Things are changing rapidly. One of the biggest changes to the industry is the use of video the use of video and this is something that agents they I mean to a man they will tell you to a woman they will tell you they could probably do this. Better you know as a brokerage you know they could probably do this better as a team. You could probably do this better and that's what we're going to talk about with Trevor Jones today so I'm excited about that absolutely so what this guy's done he's taking his career experience working on films for Disney Fox such as Captain America's civil war car Sri Guards Galaxy on and on and on and he's applied it into creating really compelling impelling videos for real estate but not like listing videos but videos that tracked people in his area and his community and it's it's helped him accelerate his real estate real estate business immensely. I'm looking forward to it man. We need to get into this and start talking about what that looks like yeah without further ado. We're going to get right into our interview. We'd like to welcome to the podcast Mr Trevor Jones. I'm I'm super stoked to be here. Thank you for having me David and cory. WE'RE GONNA get into school stuff. This is going to be Super Fun especially because I've had way too much caffeine and I've done across it workout so this is the time when I knows Jackson the day check this out. I'm currently drink red bull. I noticed I noticed you're currently out of where I live in Moorpark California which is southern California in in my office in Westlake village and that's about a forty minutes northwest of Los Angeles got it never been there really really really far from you. Guys currently eleven A._M.. Where you are two PM where I am but one of the reasons why I'm really excited talk to you today? Trevor is the fact that one of the motives motives behind why we started this podcast in the first place was to help real estate agents get to know the greater property of your brokerage obviously but also to help them grow and scale will their business outside of what they might have been taught or what they know about traditional real estate marketing right because I say it all the time like if you're in real estate you're actually in the marketing business so it's imperative that you stand out as relevant and separate from everybody else right and that's kind of what we're GONNA be talking about today with video marketing right hundred percent okay so you have an interesting back story can tell us about it. Here's the short a short version licensed private investigator for ten years and didn't like that at all. It's take statements to reports wasn't I didn't you're well hats a private investigator man just like Magnum P._i.. You're probably too young magnet piano magnum job. The Ferrari drilling r-ariz. I worked in Hawaii was written. There was nothing nothing remotely like that. Dude it was I served a mission for my church Chili's or learned Spanish and so I use that and I'd take statements to reports fine people background checks all that Jug Berlin surveillance it. It sucks dude report like English one. I disliked it immensely and I remember driving over the hill to the valley where I was working like if I'm doing this. Is this time next year. I'm going to stick a fork in my like I didn't. I didn't like it at all right but everything you do prepares you to be real estate agent because I'm I'm like talking to people. I'm sitting in attorneys offices. I'm going to these areas where I'm really not comfortable and not super. Welcome welcome knocking on doors. You know I'm trying to find witnesses so all that stuff kind of you know. It all helped me become you know what I am today. Whatever that is all it all it all adds up then I and then I was like I really wanted to talk to the kids? I it looks photography studio photography for a while and that wasn't making any money did this is really tough to make photographer then and now it's even worse 'cause he's got a camera and I saw my friend. He's like he's making these wedding wedding videos. I'm like dude how do you that's really cool and I knew nothing about but this is like nineteen ninety nine. I knew nothing about you. Know digital editing anything you gotta get all these things and and I got this program the First Program I got probably hacked it online or something was called after effects and I think I'm trying to edit a video with after-effects and if either of you knew anything about video after-effects is not forgetting videos. It's like gravity grows to making motion graphics so wrong program but but I just figured figured it out I got final cut pro and I taught myself final cut pro and and that evolved into me you know learning to edit and the the first job I got as an editor I was literally like in Hollywood and I was in this is me. I'm like in my late thirties right. They got six kids and and I'm doing a full on career shift. Okay I'm going to edit. It was eight P._M.. Two A._D._M. I'd never done a graveyard shift in my life and I was working for a company called load load media and they would take the news feed from Reuters editor together for their new shows like hey. We're GONNA pay you eight bucks an hour like eight imagine making eight bucks an hour six kids in California right working graveyard like yeah. We're GONNA pay you crap but you're going to get stock options. We're all going to be rich and like cool. I'll hang on and I did that for like three months sleeping during the day you know and and and after three months my wife's like dude you gotta get a real job you know and so I got a job barely not learning how to edit at a place at a <hes> at a place called Dr Rostock. I started teaching video editing literally in Hollywood and I would teach people knew nothing. Member guy like held his mouse upside down people enough to full on movie trailer editors ears and stuff in this so they learned this new program. That apple came out with their switching. I taught a bunch of data bunch of editors had soup program but I but here's the thing about editing. It's not about about the software. It's it's. It's way more than regular software today. So software is kind of irrelevant but I do have a couple of years and then I want to add it. I want to edit and so I'm taking too long but the short version is I became like tech place and then I kind of ease my way into editing and I became a full time editor working at movie trailer houses and the last place I worked at we created needed. We made what's called creative content for Disney and marvel movies and Fox primarily like the moves you mentioned so basically making commercials lot of showed about Disney Channel Disney exterior and theaters as you know the things that some of the previous stuff and I did. I was at that place for interviews but I was I was in Hollywood for eighteen years. It was fun. It was great you know but I was. I was kept up. Hey guys how about that raise and they were like at all. We're GONNA pay you in this place and worked out was great because they gave me like good benefits benefits for would give them mashing tickets to Mexico cruise every year and I'm making six figures and it's you know it's forty minutes went. My house is not too far away and it was kind of a great gig but but it wasn't wasn't fulfilling for me. I'm the last movie I worked restore Ragnarok and like it just the same stuff every day I y probably eighteen or twenty times start to finish known as like back and it's and I saw kind of fun to watch a movie evolve and see what the green screen and affects no sound expert. You think it's kind of a fun thing and in about four four years ago I guess four and a half years ago my wife and are like hey maybe we should flip houses to kind of do things a little bit different and build up a retirement stuff so yeah. Let's get her license I right and and so we got a real estate licenses and we realize like wait a second. You flip a house in this market which is in our market right now. It's terrible flipping houses. You know when markets crash is a great time right now S. terrible time we could you know try to get that Unicorn House way in the market and flip it and or we could just sell a house and make fifteen or twenty grand with no risk. Ask you know sort of like let's do that so she started going fulltime and I was part time with her for two and a half years or so and then September twenty two twenty seventeen eighteen the hammer comes in like oh it was slip. The market was shifting a little bit of slow time they let me go and I call the wife up and I'm like Mike. Hey guess what in two in the afternoon I don't call him from work. She's like you got laid off. She was stressed out. I'm like Oh crap who was like this mixed emotions.

"And then he gives you a couple of little motifs and then you don't know what you're gonna get until you're there with one hundred peso Costra and he nego it's great or not because most of the films I've done with music of and I were to layer the music, an experiment with the music. But when you to conventional SCO with somebody as great as that, then you don't really have that kind of control. But this film is Trevor Jones. I'll Tim too because I had these rhythmic pieces that go all the way through which are caught light and. I think that we had Courtney pine news is wonderful saxophonist who actually did it to just like an old fashioned movie. Really, hey, he improvised on the sax to the images on on the screen, and that's how that come about. I mean that to taunt your question h film is is a different decision because each film requires different kinds of music. A nephew make a different decision on and sometimes it's at the very beginning sometimes I on Nisa didn't think I'm, I don't think I made the decision, so numb off, you know, I'd already recorded a low of the music that you see within it to Brandon McGee stuff. Oh, the blue stuff we recorded when when we were in New Orleans, but great happened off to. It's another question for the crowd right here in the front row Allen with Angela econ. Mckee at appeared in his career where he was extremely electric. And you've kind of answered they somewhat, but I wanted what were the challenges of direct and him. Would you do so again, if you had the chance. Oh, what a question? She had a people because he has a reputation for being really difficult and went off the rails perhaps off towards. But I had him as you say, a really great time. He was really good in. He was is a bit like a not boy, rarely all the time, you know. And he treated me like a in a a strict schoolteacher. Anybody never ever let me down and he was always on the edge of being out of control with regards to his behavior, but he never really did it with me. And I think in the film off to hate it and then the film after that, and then you know, then he decided to become a boxer under the rest is history. And so and I think that it would be difficult for me to what with him. Again, the Makita Iowa with was one of the was the most wonderful experience, and I wouldn't say anything negative about it because he was so. You know he, he would do really. There's a scene where which is. Which is a host race, and there's like he's leaning on a post and ero- all of his lines on the post so that he could look at them because he hadn't learn them. And then something happened that the the the sun moved. And so we moved everything like three foot this way. And so if you in the film, you can same in trying to be very naturally state loan. Oh.

"But it's like you know are not going to say that this is his greatest like epic work or anything like that in fact i think the best thing about the soundtrack is how well his songs actually mesh with trevor jones score they really flow into in and out of each other um but performance wise i mean he's not he's not doing anything terribly like heavy lifting it it in any way he's just like monti said he's david bowie ing it up he's being he's being david bowie and there are but there are a couple of moments i think of real imoting that i just love especially like in the ballroom seen when when sarah walks away from him or at the very end when he singing actually it's it's during the songas that he but i think that he does the most in terms of in terms of actual acting but i i love every moment of it yeah apparently bowie was interested in doing a movie and a kid's movie particularly so um and i'm trying to remember what trivia obscene that hens that jim henson actually was thinking about staying being michael jackson yeah michael jackson was they mentioned prince but yet anthem was take the henson was thinking stick mick jagger's name was thrown around at one point but i think it was his kids that were like well what about bowie and and some was like okay we'll try and mieno david bowie was like this is gonna be fun and that's one of the things i think that comes through is the fact that he's enjoying what he's doing the whole way through and taking advantage of of this experience you'll even does the baby sounds in in the first the first dance number again if the baby to do it.
