Fresh update on "uptown" discussed on Milk Crates and Turntables. A Music Discussion Podcast
"These people just singled out one word and said that's offensive. Has it been covered that much? And what did they- Yeah, it's been covered a few times. It varies. Like maggot? It's up to the artist. Yeah, they call him a bomb or whatever she wants to call him. A baguette. So, rest in peace, Shane McGowan. Yeah. 65. 65 years old. Yeah. Yep. They released seven studio albums. He also had a lot of problems with drugs and alcohol. You know who one of his best friends is? Was? Johnny Depp. Mm. Johnny Depp was one of his best friends. They hung out quite a bit. Depp hung out with great musicians. He certainly did. They had, you know, he had their respect- You know why they hung out with him? Because fucking Johnny Depp is just cool. And he doesn't give a fuck. Dude, he's just fucking cool. He does what he wants. Yeah, just fucking cool, you know? All right, moving on, let's see. On this day in 2021, Adele was number one on the UK chart with their fourth studio album, 30. That's another talented woman right there. Let me see. Its lead single, Easy On Me, topped the charts in 27 territories, while 30 was the world's best-selling album of 2021. Fuck. Selling a total of 5.5 million copies in less than two months of its release. That girl, that she's- In 2019, Sinead O'Connor was receiving medical treatment after a message about her taking an overdose was posted on her Facebook page. I remember this. I have taken an overdose. There is no other way to get respect, the post read. Now, there was a victim of cancel culture over the other side. When I saw her get booed at Madison Square Garden at a Bob Dylan tribute, I'm like, what are you people doing? You're at a Bob Dylan. What are you doing? Well, she was way ahead of her time, man. She predicted it, Sinead, and then the shit hit the fan. Catholic church. She already hit the fan. She was just fucking putting the final icing on the cake. And she was in an orphanage, so she knew first hand. I wish she had been able to write an autobiography. Well, on this day in 2015, former New Order bassist Peter Hook was suing his ex-bandmates for three and a half million dollars. Hook accused Bernard Sumner and Stephen and Gillian Morris of pillaging the pop group's assets after the three other band members set up a company without him to handle the band's income in 2011. Pillaging the pop group? Yeah. Let's see, on this day in 2012, Glen Campbell played the very last live performance of his lifetime when he appeared at the Uptown Theater in Napa, California. Campbell revealed his Alzheimer's diagnosis to the public in 2011 and had set out on his goodbye tour as a way to say farewell to his fans. His daughter went with him. Did you see that documentary? I did, I did. I could watch it. Yeah, when he gets mad, he can't remember stuff. And that dude's not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Just from being in the fucking Wrecking Crew and all the fucking music, these assholes will not put him in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And that's a fucking tragedy. His pop singles alone. Yeah. I think he'll get in, it's just when. But it's just like, he fucking put LL Cool J in before Glen Campbell. Fucking kidding me. Even if it was some honor, he got an honor. You do, I mean, there are a bunch of fucking clowns. And Glen Campbell can't go in with one of those special awards. It's gotta be in a full blown. That's it. Let's see. It'll happen when Oasis reunite and REM reunite. On this day in 2007. Yeah, I heard that. I got you texted. Just ignore me. During a Christie's Rock and Roll auction held at Rockefeller Plaza in New York City, a collection of 276 ticket stubs. I've read this before. I've done this day in somewhere in the last three years. I think I've covered almost in three years. I don't know. We've covered a lot of days. I seem to get some repeats because a collection of 276 ticket stubs compiled by a rock journalist who covered many rock concerts at New York City venues sold for $2,000. The tickets included concerts by Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Rolling Stones, Frank Zappa, The Beach Boys, Pink Floyd, The Allman Brothers Band, Led Zeppelin, Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, Grateful Dead, and Bruce Springsteen. From what I understand, Jack had a fucking collection of ticket stubs, or he has a collection of ticket stubs. I know it was concert T-shirts. He had, I don't know, 70 concert T-shirts. Yeah. Got thrown away by mistake. My ticket collection got thrown away. I did, mine did too. My Van Halen ticket stub that I ripped off a piece of the joint that David Lee Roth handed me from the stage. Was in that fucking, my brother disappeared, yeah. You know what I lost? My sister brought me, when she saw Aerosmith on the Rock and a Hard Place tour at the Meadowlands Arena, she gave me a shirt. I don't know what happened to it because that's a lost tour. Nobody, you know, that's a collector's item, yeah. Yep.
A highlight from Unveiling the Allure of PK Lures with Curt Reeff
"Fish on! Hey, Radcast is on! And welcome to the show, Mr. Jim Zumbo. Gentlemen, I am pleased to be here and I use that term loosely when I say gentlemen. Al Winder. Just want to welcome you to the show. Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to hang out with us on a podcast for a little bit. Hey, I'm looking forward to it. Nothing makes me happier than you'd be talking about. Hailing from Wisconsin, Janna Waller. Thanks so much for having me. It's Radcast. Hunting, fishing, and everything in between. Powered by Bowspider. Brought to you by PK Lures and High Mountain Seasonings. And now, here's your hosts, Patrick Edwards and David Merrow. Welcome to another episode of Radcast Outdoors. I'm one of your hosts, Patrick Edwards. And I'm David Merrow. It's good to be back in the studio and today we're because we get to have one of our sponsors on the show technically too because you're here as well. We get to have one of our sponsors on the show and of course one of my favorites just because I love the fishing side so much. So, Curt Reef, owner of PK Lures, welcome to the podcast, man. Hey, guys. It's always exciting to follow what PK Lures is doing because they're always innovating. Pat O 'Grady and the team that Curt has, they're always coming up with ideas and they're testing out things to help you catch more and bigger fish, which is one of the reasons I use PKs all the time. I'm a bigger fly fisherman. I always have been ever since I was young, but I have no problem picking up a rod and reel. I have no problem putting on bait. I have no problem grabbing a rifle when it's rifle season even though I'm a bow hunter, right? I don't discriminate. However, there's a couple rivers here in Wyoming that I tried fly fishing and tried fly fishing and asked the locals and asked the guides and asked the shops and got the flies and beat that water up and Patrick takes me down there and we throw a PK on and I'm killing some big trout, big fish, and having a blast doing it. He's working on converting me to typically the rod and reel and the fly rod now are always in the truck. And they're both great, but it is really cool. PK is always doing some cool stuff and I have a long history with PK, but still I got to say one of my favorites is the flutter fish. I catch fish everywhere on that thing. And guys ask me, me personally, friends, listeners of the show, and they, specifically the other two sponsors, which is High Mountain Seasoning and PK, they're like, you're paid to use it. You're paid to talk about it. You really like it. I'm like, I've told them several times. If I wasn't affiliated with him, I'd be using High Mountain Seasoning and just seeing the difference in putting any PK on, especially the Red Dot Glow, wherever we go, charge that thing up with a flashlight and catch some walleye at night. It's a blast. Yeah, exactly. So Kurt, it's really cool to have you on the show. Thanks again for sponsoring the show. We certainly love our PKs and we're using them quite often because we like to get out on the water. We're transitioning into that hard water season and PK has been known for a long time for the ice fishing gear. And so I was just wanting to have you on to talk about what's new and what's coming. But first, I think it's really cool for our audience to get to know you a little bit. So Kurt, tell us a little bit about where you're from and how you got into fishing. Yeah, I don't know. I'm a redneck country guy from North Dakota. I don't like being indoors. I got to be outside. That's what got me into this stuff. I graduated from this area. I'm out of Lytton, North Dakota. We're just north of the South Dakota state line. We are located on the waters of Lake Oahe. It's the heart of the Missouri River. It goes from down to the Mississippi. There's Lake Oahe, Lake Francis, Lake Sharp that all look up to it. We fish a lot of like structure, a little bit of everything. And right now there's still a good live bait like going on. These fish that we are targeting right now on the Lake Oahe portion are starting their fall migration from south of Mole Ridge down by Akaska, here in South Dakota. They start to transition to move up north around this mark where they're going to spawn next spring. We just did a big fishing tournament here on the Missouri called the Big Muddy. That was about two weeks ago. From then until now fishing has changed. There's been a good bite around the River Bay here. This last week there's been a ton of boats out. People are getting out. I'm looking to get down next Monday just to test out some different stuff and see what's going on. But if these fish keep migrating north, ice fish should be great. But yeah, I've got a construction business on the side that we do roofing gutters and siding. And as I spend my winters off, that's what got me going into PK. I met Pat here a couple of years ago. We took him up to Lake Whip and I was looking to do something as an investment I wanted to do. I had some ideas I to wanted do. And I ran him by Pat. I'm looking at maybe getting out of there. So we worked out a deal within a week or two. I basically bought the company. But from then PK started in 2009. Pat did a great job with it. He didn't have a lot of social media, internet skills. It was all basically word of mouth. Whatever he did, it was just word of mouth. I got into it and I'm not much better than Pat. I don't know a whole lot about computers and stuff, but we've been just testing out some new stuff. We started that ice fishing company. I fished the National Walleye tour competitively in the summertime. This year I got busy with my other job so I didn't get to do the whole schedule. I'm looking forward to doing the whole schedule at the end of the next year. We start out in Lake Erie and I'm actually going out there here in a couple of weeks to test out some new products. Now I really get an head start on pre -fishing. I'm just going to get out and do one more big open water trip, I guess. I'm going to be meeting my dad and brother out there. We're That's awesome. Sounds like a lot of fun. And one of the things that I've always enjoyed over the years is seeing some of the ideas that Pat has come up with. And I know you two collaborate quite a bit and Tim Jenny and all the guys. I'm like, what are we going to come up with next? It's going to be the new big thing. And I know the Ridge Rattler has been an important part of my arsenal over the last year and a half, two years. And I see that you're coming out with a smaller version of that for ice season, which is really exciting, especially for those of us like me who love to hammer the walleye and the trout through the ice. So can you tell us just a little bit more about that product? Yeah, being a competitive angler, I got a tie on a PTA, whatever I'm doing or for the pizza purpose of building a tackle company. I can go out and use what actually works and do as good as everybody else. But the idea was what PTA we're trying to do our own thing. We're trying to be unique in and making something that's not out there yet. If you go, I'm looking at something you think what's it's already been done. What can we do to make it better? Anything different with the PTA Ridge Rattler? We took our crankbait. We have what's called a Ridgeline Gen 2 crankbait. It's got ridges on the outside. Those ridges give it a different vibration as it travels through the water. And if you want to trigger fish, you basically need three elements. You need noise, flash and vibration. If you can get one of those elements into something that's probably going to catch fish. Although, a bare hook will catch fish. Don't get me wrong. You don't always have to have something pretty and crazy out there. It can be very simple. But we took that design of the PK Ridgeline crankbait and downsized it into a lipless crankbait. In doing so, I like to use a lot of lipless cranks. Like I started off with Live Target and those are very light. They're hard to use during open water because they don't have a lot of direction of going down. They kind of jig and they do their thing. It's a cool product. They almost got some cool stuff with the light. They just don't drop fast. I was looking for something I can use for open water and ice fishing. So what we did, we added extra weight to the front. We called it a weight forward design. By doing so, that creates a fast drop alert. And we kept those ridges on the side. Those ridges cause vibration. When I'm out there jigging it or ripping it or throwing it back to me, I'm going to jig it up. And as I jig it up, I can feel vibration in my rod. That vibration lets me know that alert isn't followed up. It's actually working. And as it's doing that, it's triggering the strike. The idea is you want to rip it up, get it to vibrate and let it swim down and sink and hit the bottom. It's going to stir things up. But if it's a great lure for open water, cast like a bullet. We use it a lot up in say Devil's Lake and Sakakawea or Castle of Weedlines. Perfect lure for up there. Doesn't matter if it's windy out or not, you can cast that. Where some of the other ones you just can't cast into the wind, it's too light. But it works great for ice fishing, great for open water. And then this year we come out with three new products. The ideal is we're going for the Finicky Bite. We're downsizing things on the Ridge Rider. This one here we come out with, it's called the Mini. I didn't see it or not, but it basically weighs just under a quarter ounce. And we already have a quarter ounce one, but this is about half the size. Some of that weight, it's just a nice fast dropping lure. It's got smaller hooks on it. It's designed to catch crappie and perch and all this. But when we were testing it up in Devil's Lake last year, it isn't just up in Devil's Lake, but we have a bunch of areas down here where we have nice walleye and nice perch that share the same water. So you can be targeting perch for an hour and next thing you'll get a six ball walleye come. So this lure is great for that because it's got the small hooks on it for the perch crappie. But when a walleye bites it, it doesn't just nibble on it. It basically inhales. If you're going to use this for a walleye, bring fires with you because they're going to have to try on a small. Just something cool. And there's a lot of similar products out there, but the big difference on this, it's the weight forward design and the ribs. It's going to vibrate and it's going to have a fast drop with the other one. Just don't ask. Yeah. I've fished before you guys came out with the Ridge Rattler, I used some of the smaller lipless cranks and they just don't have the weight. You were talking about those like the rattle trap is one I think about. It was okay, but I can cast the PK Ridge Rattler almost twice as far. It's going to dive deeper. Yes, much deeper. And it's fun. I took it last year out off of this. We have this gravel point that would drop off and I was running that Ridge Rattler right up, right up that gravel drop off and just catching walleye after walleye off that drop. And I've noticed those predatory fish. They really want to be low in the water column and watch that bait fish. And when that bait fish is getting close to the surface and close the bank, that's when they want to run up and strike and eat that thing. So if you can mimic that where, where bait fish are, you know, running away, but they're running out of basically maneuverable room, that's when those big fish are like, okay, I've got you. I'm going for it. And they can corral you. Yeah. And Kurt, I was going to say those smaller ones are going to be really awesome for trout here in the West because a lot of our lakes, we have predator and believe me, they are predatory brook trout, splake, browns, fishing that smaller version through the ice and mid winter is going to be great because some of those bigger ones sometimes turn them off, right? Like it's a little too much for them, but downsizing a little bit, I think is going to be just killer for the trout through the ice here in Wyoming, Montana, and the Western States. It's going to be fun to put them to use for sure. Well, one key element on catching fish is that I can be using a Renway dinner devil, right? And it's, I can have one size and it just doesn't work. Sometimes you just go to a smaller size. That's all you really need to do. You can have the right color and everything else, but sometimes it's going to a smaller size. It's all you need to do. So that's why we come out with this mini rig browser, just a different option of what already works great. Yeah. Just as a business owner, what are some tips and tricks you found? You have two companies you've talked about you're running. You've got your competitive fishing. What are some things you've done to bring balance into? Cause obviously R and D new products, bringing that to the market. I know personally what is behind that and the amount of energy work, stress, strife goes into launching a new product, but you're also running another existing company. And then you talked about, you're getting to go do competitive fishing, which is your kind of sounds like your bread and butter, what you like to do. So how do you balance all this to keep a holistic schedule and keep you motivated to keep producing new products? Yeah, no, that's a great question. I don't even know where to start. How do you balance not just one job, but basically two. And for one, you gotta have a good foundation at home. You gotta have a good support group. You gotta have good friends and family that help you out. I can't do this on my own. There's no way. I probably talk to Pat once a week. You just kick around different ideals, but then there's the financial part of this too, where it just, in this story, you got a couple million dollars worth of product, which we're just sitting on, waiting to go. And some of it sells better than the other stuff, but to be a weird tiny company we're competing against Rapalas and Berkleys and Northlands that we're not there, but hopefully someday we'll, we'll get a little bit closer. I was just uptown on the other day at Shields in Bismarck and what started out being just a two by two area of PK is we always got an eight foot section up there right now. So that's a big store. That's a good store for us, but it's not one of our biggest. Hopefully every year we keep gaining tech space. It all starts with having a good support group and my other company is doing very well where we can take some money out of put in with something new. Like we talked about earlier, we come out with some different stuff this year. We're also an open water company. I got to keep coming out with Oakland water products. And I think we're on the right track. We've got stuff that's unique again, and then I can catch a fish, but trying to balance everything. Yeah. It's a chaos sometimes. There's nothing worse than being a competitive fisherman. That's probably the most stressful job you can have. So that's going to keep moving forward and doing the best we can. I picked this one up the other day and as an entrepreneur, business owner, if the things you do in your downtime don't revitalize and re -energize, you're not going to make it very long. It's just, you know, it sounds like fishing, even though it causes some stress, it's your getaway from the fishing lure company, right? Yeah. No, I just love the outdoor part about being a competitive ranger. If we get to go somewhere and we'll be up in Green Bay, we'll be on Erie. This August here, we took a couple of net views off the port packing. We just changed trout, lake trout. That was a blast. If you want to go to a cook catch 25 to 30 inch wakers, four pack is it, and it's only six hours only, but it's six hours from us. And we ice fish big in the last mountain, plus all around here. Going to the different bides of water, you think it's a little vacation, but it's really not. Everywhere I might go, I pick up different things I need to do, where I do with DK, where it's different colors, different bides of water, fish react differently to certain things. So as we're going around ice fishing, open water fishing, I'm picking up things. I might go to somewhere to just tank and just do terrible, but yet I picked up some skills there or I learned something new that I can take somewhere else. So it was very beneficial to actually go to this event. It's just, we're always learning and that's something we got to do to keep things moving forward. I was going to ask you this later in the podcast, but I think I'll ask it now is if you're talking to somebody who's looking at the market and looking at different options, so you talked about Northland, you talked about Berkeley, Rapala, all those big companies, and then PKs, tell them just if you were to tell them one thing about why they should buy a PK, what would that be? What is the one thing you'd say, this is why you got to have PKs, this is why you should try this? I'm not one to say that PK is a catch -all. It isn't. Should PK be in someone's arsenal? Why not? We've got something for everybody, water, we've got something for every water type, almost every species of fish. We're a North Dakota, better known, why not give it a try? I know some guys are stuck on certain things, that's the hardest thing that this little industry is to get people to try something new. A lot of older guys have a talk box that's full, right? They don't have any need or any desire to buy anything new. They've got what works, they've got what's got them their biggest fish. We're targeting the younger generation, where we sponsor the high school fishing league in our state here. It's basically like, you know, the bass circuit, but we try to target, or we try to cater to the younger generation. That's the guys that have a tackle box that's empty, they're looking to fill it up, and they're more eager to try it, and they might not have as much experience on the water, so if we can get them a PK in their hand and they can catch their first big fish on it, they're hooked. And that's a lot of guys' big mistake, is that they're not willing to try something new, where they might try a certain crankbait, where they might try a particular crankbait that they like, and they'll put that crankbait on for six, seven hours, and if they don't catch a fish, they'll just, at the end of that fishing trip, they'll say the fish just didn't bite. That probably isn't the case, because they were open to try something new. It can be a benefit with something new, and I would say try it, you got something for basically everybody. Yeah, and I would echo that for sure, like this summer we were, I took my family up to Keyhole, and I did a podcast on that, and my son and my dad and I, so it was three generations of boys in the boat, and we wanted to go out and get after the walleye. The wind blew for a couple of days, where we couldn't get out to where I knew the walleye would probably be, so we focused on crappie and pike and other things, and then when we were able to get out to where the walleye were, that PK Dakota Disc was awesome, and my dad's kind of that older guy you're talking about, Kurt, where he's 80 years old, and he has the one thing that's always worked for him. He's got one of those crawler harnesses that Northland made that he loved, and Ben's on the other side of the boat with this PK Dakota Disc out fishing grandpa, so that was pretty cool. He was having fun, he's catching fish after fish, and we were done pretty quickly. It didn't take very long once we could get out to where they were at, but that Dakota Disc shines, and that PK Wobbler, a lot of your open water stuff, man, I'm just like, you have as a fisherman, you're like, okay, it's a crawler harness. It's not just a crawler harness, and what's really cool is, for me, I've been able to put a lot of fish in the boat this year using that, and I was going to tell you this story too. I have a nephew, he lives in like the Denver metro area, right, so real busy part of Denver, doesn't go fishing, mostly plays video games. I had him come up here to Boyson Reservoir with me, and we went out, and we were pulling a PK Wobbler, and I like the one that's got the pink with the kind of silvery look to it, and we were using that, and we were, seriously, we were going about a half a mile an hour to three quarters of a mile an hour, and about three foot of water right off the edges, some weeds, and some kind of dirty water, and we had our limit in 45 minutes. It was so much fun, he had a blast, and so I would just echo that, why not try something different? It is fun to, especially in the summer, you don't have to use the same crawler harness you've been using for 25 years. You can try some of these new things that give off a different vibration, a different flash, have a little different action to them, and they work really well. Thank you for putting those out, because they certainly helped us this summer quite a bit. That PK Wobbler and that Dakota Disc, and go over some cool products that pull on live beads. That's all I ever did. Back then, there was a Colorado blade, and there was an Indiana blade, and you would put on different beads, different colored beads, different colors, and just mix and match until you got something that was this cool. When Pat first designed that PK Wobbler, it was basically out of a piece of balsa wood, and he had filed that out, and there's one side that's flat, one side's round, and when we tested it, it was the rounded side, which is the opposite side that it is now. It's the rounded side, it's your fishing pole, and that just wobbled back and forth. Probably went about 20 degrees, that you sped up, it just wobbled faster, and you go, oh, that's cool. It's a float that has action, so let's just call it the PK Wobbler. It just made sense, but then when it goes into production, it goes from balsa wood into fork, and it totally chunks the action, and I panicked, because I got this piece of foam back, and I think I was out in Green Bay or somewhere, and I was just putting some on, and it basically wasn't doing anything. It was like, pulling around a box, and I'm like, God, I got a lot of these, I don't know what I'm going to do with them. So we peed out around, and I got this idea, let's just flip it around, so now we have the part that's flat, that face of the fishing pole, and that turned it into a multi -directional floating spinner. That was by accident. Now we got stuff that's in multi -directional, multi -directional. Whoever thought of that, I wasn't thinking of that, but that's what it does, and we got the patent for that, and that's ours, when it all happened by a lot, but as a kid growing up floating spinner, I thought, how else can we do a spinner? It's been done before, and then after, I ended up sitting, and then we kind of worked together to make what it is, but that PK Wobbler, I cashed two checks on the National Walleye Tour with it, plus a bunch of other checks of fishing, different other fish tournaments, but what a cooler. I think it does better in mid -summer, more on the Great Lakes. It just covers a bigger body of, as it spins, it displaces water in a bigger area, where say you go out to Lake Erie, it's always big blade, big stuff, right? As it spins, it's covering an area that's bigger than an actual spinner would, if that makes any sense, and then my dad and brother were out here two years ago, and they were messing around. When you go up here, it's always crankbaits, big stickbaits, reef runners, bandits, baglies, those, you're graded out there, so if you're going to go to Erie, if you're going to drive 14 hours, it's going to put the whole world up, it just makes sense. Why do you want to go out there and mess around with something that probably isn't going to catch a fish, when you only have a couple days to fish? So they went out there, and they're pulling big big bait bandits around, and then my dad being sad, he puts on the PK Wobbler in front of it, or whatever, let's see what it does. That first day, they went out, they've had a one pull, my dad outfished my brother like five to one, with a wobbler in front of a six -bait bandit, right? I don't know if it turns it into a scatter wrap, where it's got a little different action, or something, but by the end of their trip, they had a wobbler in front of every bandit, so that was just super cool. That's why we're going to go out there next week, we're going to play around with this some more, and we're going to put wobbler in front of cranks, and then we have a different rattle float coming out next year, we're going to play around with that, and then we got a Kaleidote we're working on for next year, and we're going to play around with that, and see what comes of it, but that PK Wobbler is super cool, we pretty much sell them all year around, even in February, we got wobbler's going out the door, which I think is just neat, and then that PK decoded this, it's just a round disc, about little, about a quarter, we got the idea, that's the full flapping around, it just goes side to side, and it causes vibration, it's kind of a swimming action, killer lure up on Devil's Lake, I don't think it goes by a fish that it doesn't catch, it just really does very well up in Devil's Lake, Lake Oahu out here, I think, I think almost anywhere I've ever put that on, I've caught fish, super cooler, deep, doesn't cost a lot, but if you want to tie your own, we have all the parts, you can buy them online, and you get a pack of 12 discs, very effective lure, and the get up and done often make it different, and we did it again with the PK decoded disc. Yeah, like I said, it worked great for me this summer, but I want to go back to this, you've got some new micro stuff coming out for this winter season, besides the Ridge Rattler, can you talk about those other two products, because I think those, especially around here, because we've got, we got the trout that I know will eat them, we've got the walleye, the crappie, the perch, all those different things, just highlight some of those new micros that you got coming out. Oh, this starts out now, about two years ago, I fished, called the NAIFC, I think it's still having a lure, but it's basically a special panfish ice fishing circuit, where they target bluegills, the area where I'm at, we don't have any bluegills, I don't, I think I caught my first one here probably three years ago, they're a very aggressive fish, like a crappie, but a lot smaller, but anyway, we were fishing Lake Oahu in Iowa, went down there, and I brought the PK predator tungsten, it's a one ounce tungsten, got a blade on it, a treble hook, we were fishing, and I could see them on my livestock, and there was a bunch of them down there, they wouldn't fight, and so I go online, and I'm trying to figure out how to catch a bluegill, and first thing I said is, lighten up your line, you know, go like a two pound test, and I did that, and I think our PK predator tungsten was a little too big, so you can come up with the idea of, let's drop the hook from the actual lure, to get like space out there, and then that seemed to work, started catching fish, that came up with the idea of, let's just make a real small tungsten, how small can we go, we got it down to a one thirty second out tungsten, and this is called the metagoshi rig, that all came from the idea of bluegill bite eat, bug bite eat, so the idea, this is this lure, bait chasing bait, when you stick something on the hook, it's basically, that hook is going to be following that lure, like bait chasing bait down there, real cool idea, we used a little bit last fall on Devil's Lake, we were catching blue jumbo perch with this, and then we would have walleye come through, I think our biggest walleye we caught was about three pounds, the chain did not break, I'm like, I'm sold, this is an awesome lure, bluegill, crappie, perch, and walleye, but I'm not saying this is a walleye lure, but if you have one come through, you're going to be okay with it, you know, that's the hook, right, and then as I'm going around, different sporting shows, I'm thinking, hey, I got this cool small spoon with a drop chain, and I'm showing guys, and they're like, you know what would be cooler than that, a treble hook on it, and I'm like, I can't breathe these guys, so what I did, I come out with a TK micro spoon, same one 30 second tongues in, but we put a size 20 treble hook on it, that way I got all the anglers happy, I think, I covered every bait, yeah, we got six colors of each, real cool lures, shield was down in Kirkwood Chasm, and here's a bunch of other stores that are slowly picking them up, but it's something new, so if you don't have it at your store, ask as far as that they order it, or check it out on our website, where we're fully stocked.

Can I say something very quickly since this is short stuff? Sure Right before we recorded you said Dakota Fanning and that reminded me I just got back from New York and I had six celebrity sightings One of which was Elle Fanning. Oh, yeah. Yeah, she's in the lobby of a hotel. I go in that hotel to pee I'm always got my head on a swivel in that town, especially in fancy hotel lobbies Sure, and I was like, hey, this is Dakota Fanning and I was like she was sitting with people I was like, there's got to be somebody else famous went to the bathroom came out sitting next to Jessica Chastain Wow, pretty major sighting then at one of my pavement shows I saw Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig Yeah, they're married okay Wow say so power couple yeah, I mean he co -wrote Barbie with her and Dean Wareham of Luna, they're all good friends and they were all together So that was a three banger in one and this this lady near me was jumping up and down like screaming it at Greta Gerwig and she was very sweet from up above in the balcony and like made the little heart symbol and like said she Loved her was very sweet. Oh, that's sweet. And then sat next to Tiffany Haddish on the way on the flight home Wow She was a girl across the aisle from me. Did you but did you bug her the whole time? No, I didn't say anything. Were you like, hey, hey Tiffany, you remember this one joke you told? Layers She's great though. She's very pretty too. Yeah. Yes. It is. Wonderful. I like that voice. She's got that sort of a low voice kind of like this I'm Tiffany Haddish. That's right Okay. All right. We got to go cuz we're talking the Dakota here and not Dakota fanning or Elle fanning No, the apartment building in New York City. That's right. The one where John Lennon was shot in front of Live there. No, no. No, he lived there and he was he was shot on the sidewalk outside the Dakota. So That's not the only reason the Dakota's famous. Although it's probably the biggest reason the Dakota's famous One of the reasons that Dakota is famous is because it was one of the first apartment buildings in New York City like they didn't do apartments back then and even more spectacular than that it being one of the first apartment buildings is that it was Plunked down in the Upper West Side at a time when Central Park West one of the most What is it white healed high healed? Well healed well healed like Bits of stretches of real estate in the world was a dirt road still and nowhere's Phil nowhere Yep, nobody wanted to go up that far. They're like, there's nothing up there That's right. Hey seeds in in fact, it was so far out that The guy who built the Dakota who will meet in the second Edward Cabot Clark bought it from an industrialist Whose wife threatened to divorce him if he built their house out there and he's like, I don't just get rid of this piece of Land then yeah, she's like I want to live down here where it's posh in alphabet city You know, it's funny is if you you remember if you go read our book There's a whole chapter on keeping up with the Joneses in it Oh, yeah talks a lot about this part of of New York history where there are all sorts of nowhere's Ville's around that today are just like incredibly and famous Expensive that's right. All right, so the Dakota like you said people were not living in apartments at the time they were living in brownstones, which were single -family homes and There were a couple like a couple started to spring up in the 1870s They weren't great. They were Kind of like you think of New York apartments. They were small. They didn't have a lot of light People didn't love renting And living in them and along came this guy Edward Cabot Clark that you mentioned He was the president of the Singer sewing machine company So he was loaded and he got together with an architect named Henry Janeway Hardenberg a great name and to get into real estate and the first thing they built which is sadly not there anymore is Kind of a prototype for the Dakota called the van Corlier a red brick five -story 36 apartment building that was on 7th between 55th and 56 Yeah, and it immediately improved on its predecessors Because the rooms were larger the apartments themselves were larger. There was a courtyard. So there was plenty of like natural light and air Had elevators apparently which are we're talking like the 1880s 1870s and there was also I think a What was there oh there was a ramp that went beneath it so then You didn't have to solely your family reputation by accepting deliveries out there in public You could go down to the basement and meet the delivery driver to get them to take whatever they gave you Yeah, and it was just nicer overall I think there was a an intercom system and you know, like Spanish tile. It was just it was just a step up for sure and all of a sudden in 1878 They rented out very quickly and so Clark was like, alright it turns out if you if you build it nice enough they will come and Apartments can be a real thing and like you said bought that property or I guess it was just land at the time, right? Yeah, yeah bought this land from Jacob Henry Schiff way way uptown and Decided to build his second Sort of dream property there. Yep, which would be the Dakota and I say that we pause for a message break and then return and begin talking about the Dakota some more and Tiffany Haddish right after this I'm Jonathan Strickland host of the podcast tech stuff I sat down with Sunun Shahani of Surfare Mobility, which recently went public We talked about flying and electric planes and regional air mobility The future of travel doesn't have to include crowded airports cramps seats or long road trips It can be as simple as using an app to book a short -range flight on an electric plane Learn more on tech stuff on the I heart radio app Apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcast This episode of stuff you should know is brought to you by t -mobile for business Hey everybody have you ever been driving around looking for a parking spot getting more and more irritated and you think why can't I just Look up parking spaces around my area I mean like wouldn't that make sense and if you find the spot faster You're going to create less traffic and in that sense Everybody's life is made better just by the ability to look up a parking spot.

It had big apartments big rooms Courtyard lots of light Ramp underneath and all that stuff, but it was also like even more Luxuriously designed like if you came over to someone's apartment, you couldn't see through down the hallway to every single room the walls were kind of like designed around so that you couldn't like there was a Separation between your visitors in the living part of the apartment or the sleeping part, you know the family part I guess is what you call it just little details like that Another big detail is that it had its own power plant that generated electricity for it in the 1870s Yeah, not bad the kitchens had little balconies so if you had stinky stuff like garbage that you couldn't get down or Maybe even stinky food or something. You could put it just right outside the kitchen, which was something that a lot of places didn't have Yeah, they had a boiler So they had insulated pipes bringing steam and hot water into the building Which was a big innovation at the time and they had tennis courts. They had croquet courts It was it was a real gym. It still is it's one of my favorite buildings in New York Every time I go up there to Central Park, at least I try to pop out on that area and just go go Give it a look Because it's a beautiful building. It's sort of a mishmash of styles It's been called, you know, French Renaissance or got German Gothic or even Victorian and it's kind of a little bit of everything But it's it's beautiful. I don't think I've ever seen it in person if I have I didn't realize it You may have it's it's lovely. It's right there on a corner. So here's the thing when Edward Cabot Clark was creating the Dakota He was widely derided for it. They called it Clark's Folly because people were deeply insensitive in the 19th century and the reason why they call it that is because again, it's in the middle of nowhere and People aren't really into apartments Like we said they live in like three -story Brownstones like they live in homes They don't live in apartments the people who lived in apartments as far as this house stuff works article points out were widows Widowers and people who are waiting for their wealthy relatives to die so they could inherit their house And all of a sudden Clark is like no. No, we're changing the game Anyone who is anyone is gonna want to live in an apartment and it turns out his gamble paid off. He was right Yeah, he sadly he died before it was finished So he didn't get to see it come to fruition But it was certainly not his folly because like you said people lined up to rent these things or I guess I don't know were they all rentals at the time. I wonder if anyone were available for sale. I think they were all rentals Okay, well people rented him, but they were people that had money. They just weren't like robber barons who wanted to live in mansions They were they were sort of the early New York, you know upper class They were people who like were bank presidents and people who like the CEOs of the time, right? Apparently the Adams sisters were heirs to a chewing gum Fortune they live there with it and that flavor tea berry one of the greatest gum flavors of all time. That's a Was it tea berry? Now, are you kidding? Cuz I can't tell no. No, that's for real. It's like a Kind of salmon pink colored Gum, no, no the the wrapper is okay It tastes like salmon too. No, it's a really delicate unique flavor and you could probably find it like Cracker Barrel Don't they have all sorts of old -timey candies or one of those rocket fizz places? I have no idea anywhere that sells candy I'll bet they have tea berry stick gum and it's really worth trying. All right Nice tip there. Thanks. So The Dakota started a trend all of a sudden luxury apartment houses started popping up all over the place Kind of in the same model with like bigger rooms and higher ceilings and stuff like that and the Upper West Side it wasn't right then but around the early 1900s that really started to take off and Really changed the face of New York of New York, you know, they they started building up more after World War one, obviously when New York said they could and Apartments became the way to go. Yeah Eventually, the the Dakota started seeing a different clientele not you know Straights and squares like bank presidents but like stars like Lauren Bacall and Judy Garland Wowie Wow horse Karloff, too That's pretty cool Imagine living next to him and then of course two of the most famous residents John Lennon and Yoko Oh, no Is blamed widely for moving John Lennon to the Dakota and he would have lived had she not done that Do people say that? Probably somebody out there. Okay poking fun at those people. No, I think he loved the Dakota Yeah, it would seem to be his home. They were there for like a dozen years. I think right before he died I'm not sure how long he loved New York City though. It was it was a great scene for both. He and Yoko. Yep You anything else? I got nothing else go check out the Dakota if you're in New York It's a great great looking building.

I mean, I can understand because you think about Marvin in the late 60s with trouble man and 1984. Look at that. A year later, he or that year, later year, he, wow. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I remember that too. I remember when I was like, you know, at the time, I was still young, so I didn't understand how big he was. Yeah, I didn't probably even I didn't get that either. I just knew that. It was all over the news. It was a major, major thing. I mean, it was his dad and all that stuff. So the tragedy of how he went out. But the song, very, very, very good song. Good lord. I mean, you talk about a song that the title and the energy completely compliment themselves so well. He created a beautiful picture. Yeah. And it wasn't like, you know, we're going to do a show in the future about music and about love. In music and stuff for our Valentine's show, and he didn't, he wasn't dirty. Right. Yeah, I mean, he was just oozing of sexuality and he was that you can feel it in the music and same thing with Barry White. It wasn't, you know, it was like very sensual and it was just like almost like a romantic thing, you know? Even though it had that tension in it, you know? Yes.

"I think a lot of I think a lot of the, you know, at a certain point, I think we reach a place where, you know, listen, I don't need any more character. Life can take it easy on me now. And so I think I had a lot of the grit again just rural Tennessee and especially rural Tennessee where I was, I mean, I wasn't in the absolute deep, deep, deep, deep, deep Woods, but in the 70s and Tennessee where I was out by Hendersonville and gallatin, not like it is today. There was not a whole lot around. So I had quite a bit of what we would call character building and grid just growing up in a single parent home. By the time I got to Los Angeles, the LA part was just trying to build a career in an exceedingly difficult profession where I didn't have I didn't have any nepotism. I didn't have anything, I didn't show up here with anything on my side for lack of a better phrase. Yeah. Well, national was a totally different city back then in the 70s than it is now. I mean now it's the home and hard of a lot of productions, both movies and radio and television. That was not happening way back then in the same way. Now it's Nash Vegas. First of all, it's the number one bachelorette weekend destination in the south. It's number one, even more so than Atlanta. And number two, I mean, yeah, my mother was a country singer, but there's a very famous train station Alan in Nashville called union station that actually country songs have been written about it. It's beautiful. They refurbished it. When I was in high school, it was boarded up in dilapidated. So yeah, you didn't go past, you didn't go past 20th or 21st street towards first street to downtown. When I was a kid or you were looking for trouble and that would be just past Vanderbilt. So it's a very different city now, yes. Yeah. As I say right now, I mean to Nashville and there are many areas that you would stay out of. I mean, it's a totally grown up city and it's safe. It's prosperous. It's really become uptown. Whereas it used to be a hole to begin with. You are correct. There were distinctly places you did not go. That is correct. And now it is. It's just, it's just blown up in the last 15, 20 years. Unbelievable. Yeah. For sure. So do you remember any stories along the way that you can tell the audience? About that journey? Several of them depends on which ones we can allow on air. No, I think we, when we tend to use the word journey, doctor leica, we, a lot of times, as a country that we're very result oriented and I respectfully understand that certainly as an athlete, your result oriented, taking tests where result oriented, and so when we look at journeys, sometimes we wind up just looking at the end of like, oh my gosh, that person is so and so they've gotten to it doesn't matter what industry it is. And so when I tend to look at some of those years, I tend to look back at some of the moments when I should have looked at myself and gone, what the hell are you doing? And one of the key ones for me would have been what I chose to go to Atlanta for two years. I won an event in New York. And I could have gone to New York, but similarly, New York back then, Manhattan back then is not the Manhattan you see today. I mean, people who have not seen Times Square from a perspective of the early 80s to where it is today, Times Square was a place after one or 2 o'clock in the morning, you would just get killed. And so I had been there and for this event and as a guy who grew up in the rural south and who also was a golfer, I didn't really see myself hanging out in Manhattan trying to haul my sticks on the subway somewhere to go play golf. So I chose Atlanta, but I also went to Atlanta with a very old car, $200 in my pocket, and the only person that knew I was coming was the gal who was to be my agent. So I had to I slept in my car for three days in this abandoned Sears parking lot. That is in really upscale Buckhead at the time. It was just this big abandoned building. And it was kind of downhill and there was behind the building thing and I thought, oh, that seems safe. And I literally slept in my car for three days, and then my agent had a client that was in the catering business. And she had a couple of kids that they had moved out. She was an empty nester. And she was kind of a whack a doodle. She might have been kind of a functioning alcoholic. She was funny. And she didn't live that far down peachtree. And I rented a room from her for $50 a week. For about 6 or 7 months and then one of her neighbors was a lawyer and he knew somebody who worked at this really fancy restaurant downtown and he helped get me a job. And once I had a job for 6 or 7 months, I had enough money to finally move out and get my own place. So that's the beginning of a journey right there. That is the beginning of a journey and how did you get motivated? A lot of things were stacked against you. You know, a lot of things, you know how many actors try and never meet their dreams. How did you stay motivated during that process? You know, that becomes the intriguing part about that question for me, which ironically, I've asked a number of people on my own myself. Is we get into the we go the direction in my opinion of nature versus nurture. And I'm someone who believes, I don't think that it's 50 50 personally as a guy who was almost a psychology double major. I do believe we're a little more nurture than we are in nature personally. I think our environment of how we grow up has a little bit longer lasting effect on us and maybe the nature part of us remains a little more a little more hidden, but not always. I think that the way I grew up with just a sister and a mother who was not home very much and was sort of a latchkey kid who learned a lot on his own and had to grow up pretty fast. I think there was just a nurtured part of me that quitting wasn't really in my vocabulary. I don't know if you want to put words to something like that such as stubborn or cocky or defiant or I don't know. It doesn't much really matter. Even just going to the event that I went to in New York that I won, we didn't have any money for me to go to that. I literally had to go around and raise the money to be able to even go on that trip and when I wanted and that's a trophy that sits right

"There's something they don't trash talkers. Who was a track? Marcus? Who is it? Grant. Trash talker who's a problem. Sorry. Grant is not known. You ain't got no 2008. No. Back then it was Kevin, Paul would talk mad, trash, Eddie house, all the dudes was talking. But this team ain't got that. Tammy no tams. Can't the brother try? Can't they run the street? Your chief trash talker will be giggling. Oh, I'm supposed to be staring on you and it's going. Oh, this whole, here we go. I don't need to be scared of me, but when my team reach about 25 and I'm popping smack during the game, you don't need to be afraid of me. But guess what? My point is is that you should be. You should be because I just whipped ass. Trash talking is not either it's there or it's not. Patrick Beverly trash talker, right? The fact is that tame is more of an emotion track talker like the blow of the kiss. He's an action. He's not going to be like, yeah, I hit that three in your face, fool like, no. Jalen Moore screaming, that's cool. But can not be the leader of your trash talking crew. He can't be the front man. Like it's just a work that way. It's cool. What he's doing, putting it. He's not the reason. He can not be the chief guy. He can't be your KG. He can't. Dilemma of disrespect is showing grand Williams and his talk. There's this stuff. It's amazing. He's very nice. Trash talker. Trash talker, it's natural, you know? I like what I like what grant's doing. I like what he's doing. I like what he's doing too. He brings fun to the team. Exactly. He's a very intelligent guy. He's fun. He's a jokester. He can be kind of a kid in times and that type of thing, but he brings a youthfulness to the team and breaks the ice, but the whole that's the dude. You gonna be scared of when they walk off the bus? No. Stop it. Come on, to ride. Gary, this is not 2008 or 1998. It's a different generation. I would think Brent talks trash because he's trying to intimidate you. I think he's talking because he's having fun. That's his way of life in the movie. That's keeping those guys and I think he's in here. I don't think he talks. I think he's encouraging his teammates. He's talking he's joking. I think that's a different, that's not trashed off. That's just being occurred as being talkative. And that's what he is then. He don't stop that. Because that's his name. But yeah, we're coming to your house to kick your ass that KG no, no. Nobody does that. You saw the real dude do that. Like, no. There will be many changes. Redefine it. It's not trash talking. It's just. I like the fact that he's talking that talk. I love the fact that he's not afraid to keep his mouth shut. Because again, you're going to get exposed. One way or the other, either you're going to be able to back everything you say up and your teammate's going to have your back or you're going to get exposed. It's going to happen. It's going to happen. And I'm glad that he's comfortable enough in his game. And the game of his teammates to do that because that's the one thing about this. And again, I learned this from players from back in the day. Was that a lot of times you will say how you feel? As almost like a way of challenging your teammates to see if they have your back or not. I mean, if you say that, you know, we gonna bust that ass. And your teammates are like, I don't know. I mean, they're kind of good. Yeah. Y'all gonna get smashed. You are absolutely gonna get smashed. If your teammates feel as confident about the group as you do, talk that talk. Especially when you especially when you are smashing kids on every block that you hit. Uptown, downtown, hood, anywhere in the standings you want to go to Celtics are taking your lunch money. They have to take your much money for weeks, so grant, you talk that talk, 'cause you got a pocket full of everybody watch money. And I ain't mad at you. Okay. All right, well, to really just put a bowl on this conversation, the Celtics have. The subjects are two games behind my two and a half games behind Miami Tatum. Like I mentioned, it was just named player of the month for the second time in March. Play of the week. Oh, sorry, excuse me, yes. That doesn't make sense. You can't be named player of the month twice in one month. Yes. He's a definite candidate for players, but two weeks. I would imagine he has a 50% chance. Don't do anything. Now she's trying to do math. Stop. I wouldn't make it better than. Okay, all that being said. That's why I went to school for communications. Thank you very much. By sell a rent, Tatum and brown are the best one to punch in the game right now. Let's say you carry. Wow. I might have to say Middleton and Giannis because they want a chip. Sorry. That's it though. It's not anything that they haven't done. It's just I said, I said, get it done this season or get to the finals and get me to snatch their respect. That's why I'm going to see from Brown and Tatum. Team is after all Tatum, they have had meetings. They have went to dinner. They have hung out. They have snapchatted or whatever. In case time. Face chatted. It's a time, my space, black planet, whatever they have done. Whatever they have done, hit each other on their pagers, you know, whatever they have done. You know what I'm saying? And said, we are best as a duo, and we gonna smack up these fools. And we gonna take our respect as the best one, two punch in the NBA. Do keep doing that this year, grab your respect. And I think Tatum and brown are both doing that. I can't call them the best yet because Giannis and Milton have a championship. You know, you can say Booker and Chris Paul are one great one, two punch. You know, but they're rising. And then it's not nothing they haven't done. It's just the success on the floor is why I.

"So Seattle's uptown espresso in where Uptown neighborhood is closing after about 40 years in business, and sherry, if you had to guess if you had to look in your mind's eye What would be the reason that it beloved establishment that hath spawned many iterations of itself due to the just how much people love the beverage of espresso and milk and that combination what could possibly tear this away? From the fine people in the state of Washington. Uh, they ran out of cups. Close close. Uh, this is a quote from the owners of the original Uptown Espresso was once a thriving gathering place for a lively clientele. Now. The biggest issue is the influx of homeless that have congregated. This has made our customers feel uncomfortable crossing the threshold into the store. Not only that. But the living conditions of the homeless has become a health hazard. They frequently use our storefront to urinate and defecate on top of the global pandemic. This health hazardous compounds the fear and has made it difficult to operate so This is something that I have been experiencing myself recently, which is a growing feeling around homeless people that they are. They're getting more emboldened. They're getting braver. They are getting more brash, if you will, because there are no restrictions on their behavior. So you pretty much do whatever they want. Do you find, Um Yourself struggling with your conscience, though, like the people may be mentally ill or they, you know they're in in such dire straits financially than you think. Okay, is some of this forgivable, given the fact that they have a life that is very, very tough, and they are struggling with, you know, with drug abuse and mental illness and and all of those things and therefore They should be given a pass. I mean, I think there are some people out there that feel that way that feel like it's it's cruel to judge someone that's acting out or doing something because it might be, it might be beyond their control to a degree. I'll tell you a tale of two homeless. There is a homeless woman in my there's a homeless woman in my neighborhood and she has an R V. I think it's from about the eighties. Maybe the nineties. It's one of those half van, half RV things. She is. She's an older woman. She's got a couple of tabby cats that live in the van RV with her and she parks outside of the whole foods, and she occasionally ask people for money. She to my knowledge is not addicted to drugs, although she might be because every time I've ever spoken with her, she seems pretty reasonable. She sits on her phone. She? You know it lives in her RV outside the whole foods doesn't really bug anybody moves the RV every so often takes the cats outside to walk around on their little leashes. It's kind of cute to see that but for the most part doesn't bug anybody now in the park near my house. There is a Kadre or Kamal of homeless individuals that are literally just totally out of their mind. Lost boys. Peter Pan there smoking math there smoking all kinds of stuff. They get really abrasive, and they get really loaded. And today I had that circumstance where there was a homeless man who, um, it was kind of like the walking dead if everybody in the walking dead was on meth. And he started ambling towards me while while yelling and screaming, and I had to Curtail my activities. I had to curtail what I wanted to do for my own safety because this guy was clearly like a like a like a bomb. Just ready to go off. He's swiping at the air. He's punching at the air and given what I know about working with people who are heavily medicated or even people who are autistic. This guy If I had looked at him the wrong way, it felt like he would have just popped and you have to. I'm a pretty well built guy. I'm about 5 11. I did not want to get into a fight with a meth zombie. So now I have to leave the park. That's by my house. In order to avoid that kind of confrontation. Now I don't care about the woman in the RV. She can be outside in her RV all day long. She can walk her little tabby cats. As a matter of fact, I think that she's fine there. I don't want to see her messed with The guys in the park smoking meth outside of their like their palate houses and their tarp, tents. Those guys I want gone, so I have a tremendous amount of bias here. I have a tremendous amount of, you know, just disdain for two different kinds of homeless people. RV lady, I'm totally cool with you. You do it all day. Meth pros. I want you gone, and I want you in prison. How does that sound Sherry? Well, I think that that you have, you know, shown that there are two different types of groups here. There are people that are peaceful and they are trying to live whatever life they can In a situation that is not ideal, and then you have people that are violent, and that's a different situation. That is somebody that is threatening your safety. Not just your peace of mind, not just the fact that you can't be in the park, doing what you want to do or whatever, but you feel threatened by them, and that's it. That's not fair. Okay, It's that to me is where you draw the line. And when you go to this place, um are you do you have to brace yourself and say, you know, maybe they're maybe they're out today. Maybe they're not. I mean, does it sort of give you pause to even go there now? Because you know that you might encounter this? Yeah, I guess it's almost like, you know, like how they ever hear this thing about Alligator Wranglers how they feed the alligators before they wrangle them. So they're kind of in their food. Coma. Never hear about this down in Florida. Noah. Interesting. They don't wrangle the alligators. For the crocodiles until after they've been fed. So they're basically, you know, complacent and docile. I feel that way about the meth addicts If I go down there at around noon. The meth hasn't quite kicked in yet. Yeah. If I go down there after one o'clock, the meth is it's running full steam, so I probably shouldn't be down there. That's kind of the way that I feel about it now. So you're actually managing their drug abuse? A little bit a little bit? Yeah. Yeah. Which is? Yeah, that's that's asking a lot for quickly, stranger, you know? Well, I mean, you're not charging for it, So it's you know, it's a lot. There's one guy in particular and he is the king of the homeless and what he has done is he has built a It's like a little trailer. He has attached to the back of his bicycle, and he can haul this thing anywhere. He wants just a wooden box on basically like, like wheels like castor wheels. And he hauls the sing around and you can park it wherever he wants to, And then he opens up the back of it. It's like a drop down trailer and he can just sit in the back of it, and he can smoke myth And when the police walk up, all he has to do is close that wooden door again and they don't mess with him because that's his house. If I had that kind of if I had that kind of leeway wherever I was, I'd be king in the world. That's exactly what this guy is. He is a king because no one can mess with him right and arresting him doesn't solve any of his problems at all. So it's you know, the police can't do anything. I don't really know that there is any kind of a solution for for homelessness. Other than yes, trying to give people.

They have been going through some changes, and we were well made in Oklahoma's very fortunate last year for literally a month and may through the end of June, they did a huge promotion. It was called Taste of Oklahoma. And they just pulled out all the stops and got all kinds of this end cap and sign it and even outdoor signing outside their grocery stores, saying, you know that made in Oklahoma was gonna be featured inside the stores. They did fantastic retail ads for us. At no cost to any of the made enough mama companies and we understand they're getting ready to do that. Yeah, that they're getting ready to do that again. The same time this year, and the may pursue dune you know, towards almost for a whole month. So, yes, I hear all kinds of different rumors. But in terms of men in Oklahoma, we feel really Very positive, and some companies that had not been in research were able to get in to research because of the taste of Oklahoma promotion comes that's often the only way that is it is Barbara.

You know whether the items were packaged together not to make sure we keep is much money in the state as we can. You know That's a good question because some of the smaller companies actually have been able to put the M I l logo on their products. And so that's a good way to identify them in the grocery store. We have been trying ever since the beginning. It seems of time to try toe be able to tag those stores with a little point of sale material. You know something right there. When you purchased the product to let you know that it's a maid in Oklahoma product, But you know, there's all kinds are. There's a number of really large companies like shiny milling field pies. Forest sues for them they sell nationally, so it doesn't really make sense for them to put the M I owe rag on there. Yeah, A lot of Texas companies do that. And I noticed that Up in Missouri. It's not very popular. That's exactly right. And we probably wouldn't be that popular in Texas. Yeah, wait. We have to be kind of crosses about that so But we do try to do other activities to identify the product at the retail level. And you know what today The best things that we've discovered is Can't. We haven't been able to do him for the last year. But in store demos you that's about all I can ask. Yeah.

Well, we can rattle off a few more, but we have Adam on the line. Hi, Adam. Hey, How's it going? Good. What's on your mind? I'm driving. So I'm just gonna ask, And then I'll listen on the radio. But I thought Southdale that H and M was closing, and I guess to me that that was pretty shocking. Because it's not a store you see, closing down every day, so I know you guys are you know you've been going to sell that for a long time, So I just wondered what your thoughts are. Okay, well, yeah, thanks for raising that. I have to be honest with you, Adam. I have not heard that they are that That store is closing. I think it's closed already. It's been closing for a few weeks since it's at least the holidays and I believe I believe it's done. Okay. Wow. Well, Adam, you've got the scoop on our breaking news. Yeah, thanks for enlightening us. I mean, look, I think that you know, all bets are off these days. As far as I think a lot of national retailers, even the ones that are still doing okay, are taking this time to reevaluate and if their leases are up Um, they're getting out. And you know, we're seeing this all over a Sephora closed in uptown. We've got a lot of stores that are relatively healthy. That air just downsizing and condensing and unfortunate. You know, they've got other stores. Not that far away. They've got Mall of America. They still have uptown find their closing 250 stores in 2021 nationwide nationwide. Right, so, you know, look, it is sad days for Southdale. There's no denying that and I think what the pandemic has done is just exacerbate. And you know what was already happening? Um and just made it that much harder. If you've been to south they'll lately and apparently, I haven't been in a few weeks because I hadn't seen the closing sale. Hmm. But did not feel real lively there. And so I think, as retailers, you know, when they're making decisions, Tonto downsize, they consider where their leases are up. Sometimes it's leases that are the most expensive, which are the easiest to get rid of. And sometimes it's just about traffic and efficiencies. And I think the days of national brands feeling like they need to be at every mall in town are just over. You're going to see more and more bran. And having one or two stores versus being at every mall, and not every mall is going to survive this, That's for sure. That's true. I think that what's gonna happen itself Fail is what's already started with lifetime opening there, and I, you know, I think that's gonna work and lifetime lifestyle center as opposed to just exactly I I still believe that eventually whether the you know they've got the government center, there isn't the library. The library No. Now that's been put on hold. I don't know that the library is going. I think the center court probably mean I said a couple of years ago. I think they should just blow the top off of it and and do away with the center court. Well, whether or not they literally do that, I mean, I think that's basically what's gonna happen. I think it will become an area for commerce for residential for grocery for services. It might be a city center more than a which in some ways goes back to the beginnings because Um Anybody who was.

HE HAD TO BE SHOWN
"Who is convinced against his will is of the same opinion still. But not this man. I was the oldest of three children and my father was an alcoholic. One of the earliest memories that I have is of a bottle sitting on his desk with skull and crossbones and marked poison. At that time as I remember he had promised never to take another drink. Of course he did I can also remember that he was a salesman and a very good one. When he was uptown, we were living in the little town of Moscow. I went up to try to get some money from him to buy groceries. He wouldn't give me any money for the groceries, but he did take me across the street and buy me a bag of candy which I later took back traded for a loaf of bread. I was not more than six at that time. My father died in nineteen. Oh One when I was eight years old and I was in the second or third grade school. I immediately quit school and went to work and from that time until I was high school age, there was never a return to school. I always built up in my own mind. The great things that I was going to do, and in fact, I accomplished about fifty percent of them and then lost interest. That continued through my entire life. When I was sixteen years old my mother remarried and I was given the opportunity of going back to school. I went into the high school grades but having missed all the intermediate grades I didn't get along too well. So I developed the habit of going back to school just long enough for the football season and then quitting. There was always a tremendous drive and ambition to become a great guy because I think I recognized inwardly that I didn't have any special talents. At a comparatively early age I can remember being jealous of my brother. He did things much better than I did because he applied himself and learned how to do them and I never applied myself. Whether I could have done as well as he I don't know. I was married at the age of nineteen to a grand girl and had good business prospects. I had bought a piece of ground in Cuyahoga falls and cut it into lots and had a profit of approximately forty thousand dollars and that was a lot of money in those days. With that profit I built a number of houses, but then I neglected them. I wouldn't put sufficient time on them. Consequently, my labor bills ran up I. Lost Money and then just fool the way a large part of that profit. When I was eighteen at the end of high school, the High School team had a banquet at a well known roadhouse outside of Akron. We boys drove out in somebody's car and went to the bar on the way to the dining room and I in an effort to impress the other boys that I was city bread having lived in Scranton and Cleveland asked them. If they didn't want to drink, they looked at one another quarterly and finally one of them allowed he'd have a beer and they all followed him each of them saying he'd have a beer too. I ordered Martini extra dry. I didn't even know what a Martini looked like but I had heard a man down the bar order one. That was my first drink. I kept watching the man down the bar to see what he did with a contraption like that and he just smelled up his drink and set it down again. So I did the same. He took a couple of puffs of the cigarette and I took a couple of puffs on my cigarette. He tossed off half of his Martini I tossed off half a mind and nearly blew the top of my head off it. Irritated. My nostrils I choked I didn't like it. There was nothing about that drink that I liked but I watched him any tossed off the rest of his. So I tossed off the rest of mine he ate his olive and I ate mine I didn't even like the olive it was repulsive to me from every standpoint I drank nine Martinis in less than an hour. Twenty. Two years later Dr Bob told me that what I had done was like switch and setting up a demand for more alcohol in my system. I didn't know that then I had no more reason to drink those. Martinez than a Jack Rabbit. At that particular time the boys put me on a shudder and took me out to the shed and I lay in the car while they enjoyed their banquet. That was the first time. I. Ever Drank hard liquor. Blackout. Drinking. At once.

"Welcome back my friends to the big book podcast. My name is Howard and I'm an alcoholic sober since January nineteen eighty eight one day at a time. In this episode Chapter One Bill Story from the second edition about alcohol anonymous originally published in Nineteen fifty five. Substantially unchanged from the first edition there were some minor revisions to bill story. A word here sentenced there by the time the second edition was published bill story had appeared in more than three hundred thousand copies of the first edition, while a a membership had mushroomed from one hundred, two over seven, hundred, twenty, five thousand. And though bill story had already become legendary by nineteen, fifty, five, his timeless message of experience, strength, and hope retained its power and impact past his death in nineteen, seventy-one through the third and fourth editions and to the Present Day. And now. From the second edition of alcoholics anonymous. Chapter one bill story. War fever ran high in the New England town to which we knew young officers from Plattsburgh were assigned, and we were flattered when the first citizens took us to their homes, making us feel her ROIC. Here was love applause war moments sublime with intervals hilarious. I was part of life at last, and in the midst of the excitement I discovered liquor. I forgot the strong warnings, and the prejudices of my people concerning drink. In time we sail for over there. I was very lonely and again turned to alcohol. We landed in England I visited. Winchester Cathedral much moved I wandered outside. My was caught by dog role on an old tombstone. Here lies a Hampshire Grenadier. Who caught his death? Drinking cold small beer. A good soldier is narrow, forgot whether he dia by Musket or by pot. Ominous warning which I failed to heed. Twenty, two and a veteran of foreign wars. I went home at last I fancied myself a leader for had not the men of my battery given me a special token of appreciation, mitalent for leadership I imagined would place me at the head of vast enterprises, which I would manage with the utmost assurance. took a night law course and obtained employment as investigator for shirty company. The drive for success was on I'd prove to the world I was important. My work took me about Wall Street and little by little I became interested in the market. Many people lost money, but some became very rich. Why not I I studied economics and business as well as law potential alcoholic, that I was I nearly failed my law course. At one of the finals, I was too drunk to think or right. Though my drinking was not yet continuous, it disturbed my wife. Had, long talks when I would still her forebodings by telling her that men of genius conceived their best projects, when drunk that the most majestic constructions of philosophic thought were so derived by the time I had completed the course I knew the law was not for me. The inviting Maelstrom of Wall Street had me in its grip. Business and financial leaders were my heroes out of this alloy of drinking speculation I commenced to forge the weapon that one day wouldn't turn in its flight like a boomerang and all, but cut me to ribbons. Living Modestly, my wife and I saved one thousand dollars. It went into certain securities then cheap and rather unpopular. I Riley imagine that they would someday have a great rise I failed to persuade my broker friends to send me out looking over factories and management's, but my wife and I decided to go anyway. I had developed the theory theory that most people lost money in stocks through ignorance of markets. I discovered many more reasons later on. We gave up our positions off. We roared on a motorcycle. The sidecar stuffed with tent blankets, a change of clothes and three huge volumes of a financial reference service. Our friends thought a lunacy commission should be appointed. Perhaps they were right. I had had some success at speculation, so we had a little money, but we once worked on a farm for a month to avoid drawing on our small capital. That was the last honest manual labor on my part for many a day. We covered the whole eastern United States in a year at the end of it. My reports to Wall Street procured me a position there and the use of a large expense account. The exercise of an option brought in more money, leaving us with a prophet of several thousand dollars for that year. For the next few years fortune through money and applause my way. I had arrived. My judgment and ideas were followed by many to the tune of paper millions. The great boom of the late twenties was seething and swelling drink was taking an important and exhilarating part of my life. There was loud talk in the jazz places uptown. Everyone spent in thousands and chattered in millions

Protests in the Twin Cities
"Our friend Chris Eckert from five Eyewitness News is joining us on location this is the Colleen Bradley show my talk one of seven one streaming live at my talk one of seven one dot com everything entertainment calling Leinster Bradley trainer home thank Chris Eckert thank you for joining us hi Chris hi I will be already goes you know it's a tough day and I know that you know that first hand because you have been covering the riots that took place in south Minneapolis along Lake Street yeah it is it it is it's a weird dates and it's obviously a tough day I don't think anybody ever wanted to see our our city in the shape that is right now and nobody wants to look up and see the national news in the international news talking about what's happening in the Twin Cities I mean it's unbelievable and in we started probably about four thirty this morning everything along Lake Street and Hiawatha area sort of the epicenter where everything was happening it wasn't safe at that particular moment and so we kind of started in the uptown area and even to see businesses in our town get your apple store Thurston's jewelers several businesses there that have the windows knocked out I mean several miles from kind of where the main main writing was going down on and then we just kept heading east on Lake Street and it just got more and more and more unbelievable when you're talking you know I asked me at least fifty plus businesses with windows knocked out and started been taken from the inside and then and that's not even taking into account all the fires and all the buildings have burned down to its still it's just unbelievable it's heartbreaking and you know Chris I struggle because like you know I don't want to do that thing that we have a tendency to do as human beings and go all you know this is my neighborhood but but it is this is always been my backyard and one of the things that I've always loved it at lake St I have said this forever if you want to really experience the cross section of culture in the in the Twin Cities in Minneapolis specifically drive from one end of Lake Street down to the other end of Lake Street because you will see all kinds of different everything from a a mom and pop shop too you know I either are chain restaurants there are chain pharmacies but then you see the mom and pop pharmacies and you see the mom and pop restaurants and you see all the different cultures as you drive from one end to the other you get a feel for what kind of makes up the fabric of Minneapolis and so to have that be the place where this is all happening it just it's like it's rips through Minneapolis that is such a good way to put that and I've always felt that way about which street it is sold vibrant it is still alive and there is always so much going on along Lake Street and in all these businesses and think about all these businesses were already struggling right with the virus and everything that's going on and and now you're looking you see the windows knocked out and she spokes all right we're gonna have to try to start over from yelp I would choose from scratch a lot of the structures themselves are still there but the you know Chicago ridge street liquor store right there main right the middle there across from the travel market I mean they got ransacked they just did a bunch of remodeling there and they didn't even put out a lot of structural damage but the the owners there said it's going to be several days not a week before we can get real connections but this is one example of once the businesses that have been hit so Chris I have a question it's easy to see like the physical scars of this moment happening and and you know we're drawn to pictures and that's why the news is and and what you folks are doing is so important but you also have probably gotten a sense of the scars that you know our internal meaning you've had a chance to talk to some people along Lake Street as you went were there any actually I guess I don't know were you able to talk to anyone along Lake Street and if so what kind of conversations were you having yeah and I'm I'm glad you brought that up Bradley because that is what it it's easy to get distracted by seeing the the damage and destruction and move away from George Floyd staffed and move away from white people are feeling the way they're feeling we were staying out in front of Chicago lake liquors there we talked to a young man his name was what we eat vomit south Minneapolis sees you know since his family's from small yet but he's born and raised in south Minneapolis this is this is his home and we talk and probably for a good ten minutes about why he feels the way he feels and why he feels that this community city Minneapolis continues to turn a blind eye to the needs of the minority community and you know I asked him if if he felt that was justification for people to Saludos Mrs in the burn things down and he said absolutely not because you know I think that's deplorable but but people need to understand that what happened here in the last twenty four hours is something that has been bubbling under the surface for years and years and years and at times as we've seen it does it does explode and in this particular case over the last twenty four hours we've never seen anything like this absolutely I I'm wondering if you can tell us christen today now in the daylight as we've made it through what was really truly a long and difficult night I will say you know you said you were on the scene at four thirty AM that's right about when I woke up and recognized that you know that that the things that I put my head on the pillow that were happening when I put my head in the pillow were still going on and I and I and I dug deep into see kind of where we were as we woke up this morning but can you tell us now in the light of day as the day is sort of shaping up how are our community members coming out to help are there ways that people are kind of coming together on the streets to try to put some order back there are their business all individual business owners I would say probably about seven thirty in the morning when a majority of what I could tell a majority of the crowds it pretty much dispersed that's when you saw these small mom and pop shops and their friends and family gathering with brooms and and cardboard boxes to be able to gather up the pieces of glass and cart you're putting up plywood to try to protect their storefronts and that's when you really saw people yeah I saw a guy just walking around picking up garbage in the back lot who's buying his business and so that that's definitely that's definitely going on I mean it's it's it's pretty daunting thinking about the amount of of clean up it's gonna have to happen I mean if it is something I've I've I've been in the television business for twenty five years and will provide a places and seen a lot of things I I've never quite seen anything like the aftermath of of what happened and no doubt there will continue to be stories for you guys to cover you guys have been on it from the beginning and is there anything you can give us a heads up about in terms of what we should expect today I know I saw there was a press conference earlier with the mayor and city officials is there anything else we should alert our listeners to to make sure they pay special attention to KSTP well I would you say it the problem just a legit alleges a logistical standpoint from being down there I wouldn't I know that there's a lot of people's urge to go down there and take pictures and see what's left I would just try to avoid the area there are a lot of people down there who were you know down there looking at it and imposing and you've got street lights out you've got power out it's just that it it's N. and now's not a time to be some volatility there too because the the third police precinct is right there I would just I would avoid at all costs yeah I I think the next step is were waiting out here when the National Guard comes in and what happens today yeah well Chris Eckert thank you so much for joining us and giving your perspective as a person who is you know right there reporting as early as four thirty this morning and we will just encourage everybody to see two to five Eyewitness News for updates throughout the day Chris thank you so much for taking time to join us yeah I think you guys appreciate it and you know what you can do is keep talking about it there are talk about it yeah thank you you're not talking about it that's that's that's what it's about yeah I have seen you create
