Vincent would move to pears to be with theo his brother. It was in paris that vincent was first exposed to impressionist art. Which was all the rage in france at the time. Impressionism was so popular. That feels secretly wondered. If vincent's artwork would be considered at all. Vincent's demeanor as demonstrated with his many conflicts and disputes. With authority figures throughout his life was expressive. To say the least this passionate attitude would cause friction with personal relationships in his life and made it difficult for vincent to maintain working relationships.

It was this newfound desire to learn more about eastern culture that influence vincent and his next move to the famous are lay. France are lay. Is where vincent lived in his iconic yellow house that so often we see when referencing his life story over his entire artistic career which was surprisingly only ten years. Vincent would create more than two thousand works of art despite receiving very little compensation for his artwork while he was alive. Several of vincent's works are now valued as the most expensive on the globe. Vincent's most iconic work. The starry night in my personal favorite artwork of all time was created in france around eighteen. Eighty nine his other works titled sunflowers self portrait in irises.

Vincent's lifestyle began to catch up with him and he began to suffer from strange ailments. It was a parent. The vincent's mental health was beginning to decline. As well later on his diminishing health could have easily been attributed to. Vincent's incredibly poor diet in nutrition. It was also reported that vincent was ingesting absent and turpentine both toxic once. Theo became aware of vincent's condition. He recruited a local friend of incense to check up on him while he was in our laying after a short period due to vincent's abrasiveness his friend abandoned him to his own devices. It was around this time when the incident involving the infamous ear was removed. Which is one of the most iconic stories involving vincent mango after. Vincent's friend left him alone. Vincent was seen stuggling around with a razor. It's unclear as to win. Exactly it occurred. But vincent used a razor to remove his ear then went to a local whorehouse he then casually walked up and handed it to a local prostitute. Later on that night. Vincent was found in his room suffering from blood loss in seizures. Shockingly vincent was omitted and dismissed from the hospital. Although it was obvious something was seriously wrong. Sadly vincent would be an out of the hospital over a number of days eventually leading the townspeople in the city. Where he'd lived to declare him as dangerous as such. Vincent was asked to leave his home and decided to admit himself to asylum essentially hoping for a full recovery. It was while. Vincent was in the asylum that he was asked if he could provide his paintings for an exhibit around november eighteen eighty.

Eighteen ninety vincent was spotted leaving his room and carrying his paint supplies heading towards a surrounding field and order to practice painting landscapes. What isn't quite known is what exactly transpired in that field. There are many possibilities. And when you examine the evidence you can come to your own conclusion. But i'll let you guys know my take a quick second later on that afternoon. Vincent was found in his room bleeding from a gunshot wound to his chest. There's a big split in the consensus as to how vincent actually received that gunshot wound. Some people believe he shot himself while some believe he was shot by another person. I'm on the side of. He was shot by another person. After his discovery vincent was rushed to a nearby hospital. Who alerted his brother. Theo to his condition feel of course rushed over as soon as he possibly could. It was reported that feel found vincent sitting upright in his bed smoking a large pipe seemingly palyed. But well vincent and. Theo sat and talked for a few days before.

Was Brian Laundrie The "Creepy Man" In The Van?
"So. I've got a theory that i'm going to drop her an idea and the only way that i can kind of spin this right now is just an idea from author mind. Meaning how. I would pen the fiction if i was taking this story and wanted to write. Write the book Right the write the script. And where would i go with it because the question is you know. Whereas she but was brian. Also the creepy man that was You know basically the there's a couple unit probably know about it. That was murdered in their bodies were found in august eighteenth female couple and they had said that. There's a creepy man who intimidated them and or they felt intimidated by.

I'm actually saying that he did. But if i were to pen the fiction it would be that yeah. He is the creepy man near that campsite that he and the girlfriend made it to a campsite close by and when this guy started to rage and basically his relationship is unraveling is becoming not what it is seen on video but really unhappy that that the girlfriend is the one person for him and she feels the same way. There's a break-up something like that. But when he goes off wandering he sees a happy couple he sees a happy couple and these were newlyweds to female couple and he just rages over that fact because that's something that he can't get he wants and he can't convince the girl who's been his girlfriend for a couple years and now when they're enclosed quarters in the van things are different than what they are in the wide open space any

You know she's five five hundred ten pounds and was traveling From the east coast area from florida to new york and then going west leaving that van life Doing that sort of thing and also have a youtube channel documenting that stuff. Where even the description on the channel gets to me. And that's gonna lead into that one word i'm going to give you But nonetheless you probably checked it out a little bit about it Young fun documenting. Everything as if it's the only thing that the world happenings because it's happening to you and your documenting your video in it and you're putting it on youtube or instagram.

I think it's like fifty fifty right now that something did happen So you know a did something happen. Be where did it happen. And who's involved The boyfriend is the last one to be with her. Obviously that's the life they were living in the van van life but right now seems like there's a lot of suspicion around him and i always say that that's where the police always go with investigation anyways whether it's the husband or the boyfriend the last person with them a family member as you just gotta treated as a

Built it up from there and then one of my subcontractors might trim and melwork subcontractor young guy. We went to church together. His business was blowing up because he got into the high end. Trim and melwork work <hes>. Market here in our area and typical difficult construction business owner great craftsmen horrible business person and he approached me one day and said man. Your i like the way that you run your construction business and everything's always organized <hes>. I wanna talk to you about how to run a better business. So we met up for lunch and was talking to him about that and giving them some tips and tricks. And and i didn't know he was interviewing me at the time he said. Okay well i think. I need to hire somebody to run my construction business. Much mill work company and <hes>. He's an acid yeah. I think you should do that. Because you're a horrible business person but you're an awesome. You're awesome craftsmen in great with the guys out in the field and the work was just unbelievable and he just said okay. I want you to do it. And so i thought i was like i got my own thing going on. I'm okay and he's a great salesman and he's like listen. You have a small construction company is gonna take you twenty years to get where you want to be. I'm already in those projects as a subcontractor we've landed some really high end stuff but this business that we just acquired meaning that the projects coming up he said it's gonna put me out of business doing these projects because i don't know what i'm doing and <hes>. He he so he said <hes>. I want you to come and run the business. And i thought i bluff bluffing okay. The only way. I'm going to run your business that you let me run the business. You run the field our on the business. But i'm i'm in charge of the business side of it. And he said no problem and he literally pulled out of manila folder with the entire business and it just random paper. Here's the business slid across the table and said you run it and went home talked to my wife and said this is a crazy idea. This is really stupid but my friends gonna suffer and he was right. It was an opportunity to get on some really into high level projects high end projects that i'd already always been wanting to do in such kind of step back and said all right. Maybe we should do this and <hes>. So bit the bullet went on went. Joined that team as a as the chief operating officer and at the time we had six guys out in the field in within eighteen months we were at twenty two guys in. He was in debt and not making any money. And we kinda turn that around and and that wasn't all me. We had great team a great owner. That had a really good vision and i was just the execute and putting systems in place. Oh did that for about four years and then got another crazy idea saying. Hey what i've done with my businesses and now with this treadmill work business. I think i see the problem here. Within an industry. I can help a lot more business. Owners with systems. All i know construction. It's all i've ever done so after about four years of being the executive there. I left that that job and started writing books and and speaking at industry events and now it's four years later and i've been doing coaching and consulting work strictly for construction business owners since those back in twenty sixteen. So yeah right up for years. We've been doing this <hes>. Before we move on but are you recommending to your kids. They go to college. You spend a lotta time in college. You said a master's in engineering of some type so talk about that for a second. Are you gonna man. You're gonna make mom hears this. He's gonna get offended. And it. Every time i say but <hes> m. i. encouraging my kids to go to college no not specifically i'm encouraging my kids to develop skills in areas that interest them and figuring out how they can make money at it now. Some of those things that some of my kids are interested in now will require them to go to college. But especially as we're seeing in twenty twenty man colleges change. They're still the same tuition rate but they're not allowing you to go on campus and all of the other things that higher said that here's where value is. Now they're saying nope can't come to campus. We're going to do all virtually. So i think the whole world has changed so but to answer your question. No i don't encourage my kids to go to 'cause. I don't discourage them from going to college. The i feel like it's my job as a parent when you're out on your own which i got four boys in a baby girl. I say baby girl. she's five. She's always going to be my baby girl. The boys they're on their own at eighteen. You better figure out how you're gonna make money at eighteen and if that means you're going to college then you know what i took me. I was on the five year plan to get my undergraduate now. Four year plan right but i worked the entire time and paid for most of my most of my college through work. They can do the same thing so <hes>. And it looked statistically it takes most people at least six years to get an undergraduate degree and only forty percent of incoming freshman even graduate with a degree at all. So yeah do. I encourage them to go that path. Only if it interests them. Only only if that's that's where their future light. Hey you know. One of my kids wants to be a doctor yet. You probably better go to college. I have several of them that are interested in computer stuff in graphic design and other things and got my fourteen year old son this year to start working for a contractor and over the summer and he came home with more money and more cash in his pocket. And said yeah. That's what happens when you go work. And that's what happened with skill so

So this was an easy selection for me I grew up when we were talking earlier about Van Halen being on MTV and being on the radio. This is one of those songs that was always on Yes is one of those I mean you've heard me walking around the office for the last week trying to rock out the opening riffs to this because it's so much fun to play. This is a great song I read an interview with Roth where he said that a this is Panama by the way. A car in he said the car Panama is a country but this is a song about song about a car into he was interview. He said reporter said why do you only write songs about girls partying and fast partying in fast cars and he said he realized different song about a fast car. So he decided wrestling about a car. So I guess the reporter gets credit for the fact that we have this. Yeah. Yeah. On any other list made by the WHO's Van Halen Fan. Panama could be number one on that list. This is the consummate. Although it's not my number one track but this I think you could make the argument that this is the consummate David. Lee Roth Era van Halen I this week's all.

Right. Just every day, hard working American how much do you think they care about this story right now? More than we think is less than we think about what we think the day after I think while it was going on. There was probably a heightened level of people who wanted to hear what he had to say. And after what he had to say or what he didn't say, then it became a story for about eight more hours after that. And then everybody went back to their lives. Because there's nothing here. And what do you mean by nothing here? Well, I mean, what Muller said was essentially echoing what bar said, only, and other terms that there may have been some malfeasance that took place. However, there wasn't enough to charge the president with and the way that Muller said it was left left a crack in the door though, of perhaps something that the president could be guilty for obstruction. Okay. And all that they took that sentence that sense that one sentence from Robert Muller, and this became now another thing again where we need to more investigations and we need to reopen these things in this man, if he were any other person, but the president would be arrested in blah, blah, blah, but it comes down to Pelosi what she going to do. All these other people that are running for president is saying it's time to impeach. We gotta do this. There's a lot of people in America that can't stand any of these folks. Absolutely right.

I mean, I don't know if you wanna be a sympathetic figure, but you'll, you'll be one. Why? Get him for two years. It cost millions of dollars. There was no collusion. Then we got nothing here. Nothing. Right. So we're going to drag this on for months, and months and months. That was the problem with Muller and the way he phrased it and parse it, and what he said, because he knew when he walked away after rolling a grenade under the table that this was not going to satisfy anyone. It wasn't going to satisfy the Trump people. It wasn't going to satisfy the left, he was gonna sit somewhere in the squishy middle by what he said, and even if even if and he pointed this out without saying it that there was obstruction and in his view there wasn't he didn't exonerate, the president.

But I mean, you can't abuse certain things yonder soms people are abusing right now that you really wanna see them have more responsibility with probably abusing alcohol because it takes us to places where we shouldn't go and shouldn't be something of somebody using something too much is never a good thing. So I mean, right. Are we over how there's no doubt about the fact that we're over sexualize d-? What are your thoughts on that? What are your thoughts on kind of what you see is talk about Instagram? We talk about different things like that. As far as the culture of of of really just kind of hedonism that we're in that I that we all break breakdown. I mean break it down for us to call anybody. I call anybody out, but we seem to be a little bit more free, which is not the I don't have any listen. I don't think there's anything wrong with it. I don't I don't personally I think that everyone should be able to cert- their personal sexual liberation and their freedom. However, they want, but I just wanna know if you think, and if that's I really do mean that I'm not not a platitude. But I wonder if you think that there's anything inherently dangerous about any of the sexual freedom that you feel like is on social media in the meteors any temptation dangerous. It's dangerous. I mean scripture says protect your air gates in your gates. And so, you know, some people that you probably shouldn't be following any. No that where that train of thought can take you protect your ear gates. And you're I gates. That's gripped. That's wisdom. So so that's on you to have the discipline to on follow the things that you shouldn't.

But we're comparing ourselves to something that we were never intended to be in the first place, which is what would. Which is somebody else? You're never to be me. Obviously, not your guy. And I was never to be you for the simple fact of there's no competition ever. There's no reason to try to be like someone else. That's not how what how God created you. There can never be someone bigger and better than van because there's only one you and vice versa. And I don't want to sit here and say that I got it. All perfect, and I got it. Right. It took me a very long time. And I still struggle with the till this day of realizing on my God. I can't really compare myself. It's a struggle. But the reality is why if we know that there's only one me all those funny is that. Tell me like working here at teams E. Sometimes we. Sort of air again on my part, but people with there's a sometimes I feel like in order to get people to accept the the status quo of society or what you need people to feel ordinary. So that they do what you want them to do. Sometimes that's how I feel. I feel like I feel like it like huge corporations and different people like that they want you to feel like you're a worker bee Shah. So that you don't ever really set foot into what your life really can give to you. Because there are a million people doing that. Then who's gonna Puerto driveways and do things like do? You know, why they do that why they're insecure leaders? We have insecure leaders that are leading an insecure pack. You're not supposed to create more followers. You're supposed to create more leaders. That's the issue and people when I'm when we're working here to go. They say they say to me van you're not. Special and I say well. I am the only van who has ever existed, and I'm the only van that ever will exist. So I'm actually the definition of special. Variance? So on the rarest thing you could ever get because I'm the only meat it is ever going to be. I like, I guess what makes it so hard for people to step into who. They are what they're supposed to be. And what their unique purpose is why do people feel like that? So hard to access a lot of the mental health issues that we were talking about. Now, a lot of the listlessness that we're talking about are people that are here. And don't know what it is. They're supposed to do. How do you find what it is? It's you're supposed to do. Because if you don't know who you are if you don't know where you're from you won't know why you're here. So who are you where where are you from? I believe you're from the man above. That's who created you. So you need to go to the person that created you you don't need to go to social media, social media didn't create you the culture didn't create. You he created you. So it's your job to ask him in Leinen and say what why am I here who are you? You're not what the culture says, you are the culture can't put a label on you. They didn't create you. They didn't make you only. He can put a label on you. So when you're confident in who you are if you know that you're accepted, you know, that you're redeem do, you know, that your whole, you know, that you're all those things it'll be easier for you to find out. Why you're here? Does that make sense course? But that's it. And I understand I'm making it seem like it's so easy. It's not easy. It's difficult.

I have a call in for murder Mook one third of the easily in Depok hasa park has made a lot of news this past week by having guests on. Yes. Jewels who piss everybody off? Now Mook was the subject of some scorn and ridicule on the internet after some of the things that Joel said rubbed people the wrong way, number wine. She talked about some of the issues that she had had with two very prominent black women in this space Scotty beam and can civil women who I have the utmost respect, and sort of admiration for a lot of people thought that's fucked up. Don't let a lady come on there and shoot it these women they got murder Mook biscuit afford, this also a lot of people sort of took issue with Mook basically saying in some way that Jew. Rules was not white. She was Spanish as he put it. And therefore, she could say the n word or use the N word or had access into some parts of the black American culture or experience and people felt like he was making that claim and sort of some way even some sort of weird past. I really don't know what the fuck was happening. But he Myrtle guy y known for a long time about a rapper a rapper himself signed to Busta rhymes. He decided he wanted to call up and explain or more to the point sort of tell people what was inside his head during that interview. And why he might have not spoken up for Scotty or for Karen civil and be why he feels like there's a different set of rules that he grew up with over who can say the inward who cannot say the N word based upon his upbringing in New York gave him the form known for little while. He did his best. Explain it. You. Make your decision in the main part of the podcast, the two guests that we actually had on the red pill friend of the show Amanda seals and someone who I've known for a while did some work with guideline. I I've had a lot of respect for Robert Matala black sports online. And we discuss this entire Meyer enroll situation these situation being that Amanda seals had initially describing interactions. She had with him not mentioned his name, and then came back after a while and discussed more in detail based upon different accounts, as she got the sort of MO that she felt like he had in order to warn women that ended up with Robert towel black voice. Online running will can only be described as an Arroni's headline about Amanda seals therefore, subjecting her to some scorn and ridicule. On the internet. Now, this conversation that we're having regarding this situation is about number one the merit of how she went about doing what she did in the first place whether or not that was fair and number two the responsibility of journalists as far as right in the headline that is fair and accurate that might actually make people attack a public figure. It was a very riveting conversation that was very heated. You have two different sides of an argument, and it's very important in terms of where journalism ethics personal feelings and personal responsibility intersect. They were both here. They're both very brave about it. And they were both very forthright and nobody really back down. It was very very a necessary conversation all of us with public voices. Need to understand the responsibility of those public voices. Not just a for the platforms that we on. But in our per-. Personal life as well. I think that this conversation did a lot for me to understand where everybody was coming from. This was not about. The guy that Amanda. This was not I say this is not about my role wasn't about Myron Rolle had nothing to do with him. All right. It was about the situation that arose from one woman doing what she felt was right for a lot of other women a man taking issue with that. And then where we go from there we have to be able to have those conversations and was had on the red pill. I think you guys all enjoy, but we're gonna get to move. I I want you guys really pay attention because I want you guys to pay attention to the the will and the plate analogy that he makes in this. This this conversation that we have I I don't understand. Maybe I'm not on the level yet to get this because Mook on some deep shit talking about the will and the plate and all of that stuff. So get into it. Like if you understand it put it in the comments when I put this up. For for you guys consumption. Quick quick ran very short rant this week. And it's basically just thank you JC. Thank you on behalf of the culture on behalf of the people that I know thank you for the work that you're doing right now.

"I am now betrayed STAN. Van gundy. I didn't get a good shot of him because he was moving around and stuff, but he was feeling bad Mike because he had publicly declared that he would wear the David Stern shirt if we send it and so he called me FaceTime me. And he may or may not have been wearing the shirt, I could totally tell, but it I took a picture of him without him knowing it because I think I think STAN Van Gundy needs to be publicly shamed for this. I don't even care what he thinks of it either. By the way, like if this Rex our relationship, then so be it. I got no problem with that. Because I always leave the van Gundy's to be people who were truthful, especially their parents like, and Jeff and STAN have been stained by him promising to do this for us and then walking it back because he's afraid of thin-skinned David Stern. So my brother is stained by me going back on my word, the Van Gundy name, all of Gandhi name all van Gundy's sly kids, everybody am I wrong. Yes. Your kids. Everybody. Am I am? I wrong. You want to defend yourself because you sound like a broken trying to defend myself. I did go back on my word. I decided that that was not something that I should do. But I don't think that should affect anyone other than me. It's not how it works on his shows. No. Oh, wow. We just put her on television. I I think that's pretty incriminating. Mike, Mike that looks pretty incriminating to me the shot. I got him. Also gonna put it on Instagram. So you can weigh in Lubbock toward show. All right. Yeah. So the betrayal as are just hanging me out to dry here. That is correct. And you will eat it. Let's talk some basketball with STAN Van Gundy. This is what I want. I want to give you some numbers. Here's two guys because the Boston Celtics were almost finals good last year or quarter away from being finals good last year. They added Kyrie Irving it's been season of no fun at all the Philadelphia. Seventy Sixers standing and Gundy last week told us that's as good as starting five. Now, you add Tobias Harris. That's a good starting five as anybody. But the the warriors and yet Boston every damn time. They play Philadelphia they wipe the floor with them. And Furthermore, Joel Embiid was a physical specimen of uncommon size and strength. He gets neutralized all the time by the old man game of Al Horford. Listen to these stats because Boston is ten and two in his last twelve games against Philadelphia. You saw that without kyri and Gordon Hayward. They dismissed Simmons and Embiid and five games in the play on might say, the Celtics have their number so Horford when when Joel Embiid is guarded by Horford. He is twenty-five of seventy when he's guarded by anyone else. He's forty eight for fifty two. Stan what the hell man Al has Joe number. What the hell no question that. And that's really the reason for the for the mismatch between the two teams. Now, I think Brett Brown made the point after the game. And he's absolutely right. It's a whole new team for the Sixers, and they haven't been together at all. So I don't think that they're necessarily overly worried about having to play them in the playoffs..

I have a daughter, and I want a society where she can walk through her neighborhoods and her community safely. Now, if this man who actually went through this can have the foresight to see how important this is. Why can everyone else I'm not even going to say the name of the person that is making me go through this whole little rant because you all know it. It's been all over the place known about this guy for years don't need to go back and relitigate everything that's going on with him hurt these stories when I was fifteen sixteen years old when he married a kid. That's something different. When I'm talking about is the response also social media from people who are doing this. What aboutism to a degree that makes me wonder if they're fucking brains work. Like if they get the seriousness of what we're talking about. Because if we're talking about building everything else how we going to do it without the women that built us. Every single black woman built all y'all every single last one y'all brick by brick probably the only one that cared about y'all. I know I'm sitting here. Speaking to the soul of my mother. I'm talking to you with her mouth and her tongue. I'm feeling with you with her soul. She gave me everything I'm giving you my dad gave me my backbone. He gave me my principal. Everything else. I got it from my mom. So if there was a time when she could walk through south Baton Rouge having to look at her abuser in his face and couldn't do anything about it. Why me as a man am I gonna let that type of situation? Be pervasive at the time that I can control it. Listen. We've all gone through it together. I've been unfairly detained by the police. I've been a victim of racism all this stuff. I'm from van Rouge, Louisiana say that every show say this show every. Aspect of racism that you can imagine happening too. A black man that's happened to me. I haven't been lynched. Thank God that you know, I was born in nineteen eighty I missed that air, even though they still do it to today man, this fucking tough out there. But. That doesn't mean that in every single instance of injustice, my response is going to be what was me. My response is going to be man, y'all hard on the black, man. My response is going to be not a child done with this black man while you know, if it's fucked up kill it. If it's a virus curate. If it's broken put a cast on it. Don't matter. Don't matter the color fix it and don't fix it for us fix it for our sisters fix it for women period, fix it. So we can finally fuck and be done with all it is. This is tiring. And it's dangerous for them. It's life or death. It's worse than death. Sometimes when they're assaulted when humanity is taken. Like, let's fix this. Let's stop equivocating and being fucking cowards about it, y'all. Brave enough to do everything else, which I'm not brave enough to look at this issue. Not brave enough to take a step back. Saying that situations were untruths and lies. Don't happen. We know that they do. Both on a high profile and on a low profile. We know that they happen. But I'm saying go and speak to some of the women around you and ask them have they ever been sexually assaulted. It's fucking scary. It's scary. And by the way, go talk to some of your homeys and ask them if they've ever sexually assaulted anyone? That's fucking scary. Have they grabbed the ass. Have. They pulled a titty out. Have they? Grinded. Have they done whatever as that? We got really this, man. We gotta stop this. We do. And it's not about any specific special is not about any specific person is about working every single day..

"Yeah. Local van lesions the repeal where we give you the brutal reality of truth base. Guests all about truth. Love his guy Aaron foster former all pro NFL running back, but really thought later man, really a guy who. Really has one of the most brilliant dare I say beautiful minds Indian tire culture me area and talk about so many different things there so much. You can talk to this brother Abou, we'll talk about sort of the issues that he has with celebrity news culture, and how hard it was for him to walk into this building to do this podcast. We talk about issues with religion, Aaron is an outspoken atheists. Of course, I love Jesus. So we have to talk about our differences there. We also talk about his experiences playing football, and how his intellect wasn't well received during his playing days kind of how he had to work a little bit to make people realize just what he had to offer coming out of his brain and not out of his arms and legs and all that stuff like that. And sort of how the? A professional athlete and sometimes can struggle a little bit too to redefine themselves. He's done a fantastic job at a at carving out, a whole new source of relevance. And it's not something that it's easy for athletes to do. But when you're talking to someone with the deep wealth of knowledge aerienne has with the conviction in the passionate. He has about issues from the social to the metaphysical it's easy to see why he's been so successful in doing. So it was one of our best podcasts. One of our best conversations. Definitely talking foster so much. So that I can't really even summit up. You guys are gonna have to listen to do is really something else. Now, I wanna talk about two stories that I was told when I was young kid when I was about fourteen or fifteen my mother told me a story. My mother told me a story that story was about. A time that she was sexually assaulted. She knew her abuser. She. Is she had to see him in? Her community for very long time Nali that her abuser happens to be father of a childhood friend of mine, and that's the way that this situation came back up. My mother told me this story when I was really still formulating my ideas on. How relationships between men and women are supposed to go. When you have your boys and people in your surroundings, telling you one thing, and when you have the people that you respect love and look up to trying to shape your mind to understand and behave in a different way. My mom shared this with me, very difficult for her, and it forever changed the way. I look at women knowing that that had happened to her knowing that she had been through that. Made me very wary of ever hurting someone to the point to where I actually four while became pretty scared of women pretty scared of being misconstrued or taking the wrong way or or been in any way, someone who could who could do something like that. And. Sort of. Remember the moment that I realized that her life had always been about being my mom that she had had to navigate this world as she had had to go from place to place in it with no safety net and the safety net that she'd already provided with me the feeling of safety in the feeling of comfort and the feeling of.

"Really side holidays you don't like swearing, but I just think that means that emphasis because we weren't forgetting what so important. Let's talk a little bit about why I think that let me sort of justify my my position here. Any van Halen? When he when when van Halen came out when we when Eddie van Halen came out, he revolutionized several aspects of music kind of it once. First of all. He his playing style was different. Cool riffs with a lot of like open string stuff going on cannot just like chunk along and power chords. Which is kind of which was kind of a lot of bands were doing up to up to any kind of brought back the riff in in a lot of ways. But Eddie did something different. He played with both hands on the neck of the tar what became known as two hand tapping. And he there's been arguments, you know, guitar players are crazy. You know, any man Helen didn't do that. I I saw Django Reinhardt do that in nineteen you know. Right. Okay. There hasn't been probably tar player live that didn't one time fret down and take a finger atop the neck and go, oh, that's a cool sound, but that's pretty much as far as it went. What what Eddie did with that type stuff was he was able to create the kind of do things with our pays you, really?.

"Okay. Van Halen or as Bill and Ted would say. Van halen? Do you? This is what I'm talking about van Halen. There's like so many dislike so much drama around these guys. Okay. You know? Fans are like, you know, they really RAV in the village. No, you're not as well. You know, somebody else carries around everybody knock you and everybody's like a strike by this. They're mad because they any any fires Michael Anthony brings his son to play bass kid in the band. There's all this like, blah, blah, blah around this ban. You know, are they going to torn 2019 athlete says he's heard anything about it. David Ross kind of like hitting around that it might happen. This time we could talk do know the video on what I think might be a good path. I think it be fun for them for for at least Eddie detri-. But. What I think everybody misses in all this stupid nece surrounding this amazing band is any fucking van Halen. That's what may look look. Listen, guys. There are it's like expected. I mean, some guys are old remembers. I think you guys can can relate to this as well. You know, when a band comes out you're expecting like good songwriting good singing good playing. I mean, that's like you wouldn't you know, you don't wanna hear shit. You know, you you if it's coming out it's being cranked up on your rock station, or on rock radio on the internet, or whatever it is that there's a certain standard, you know? It's going to be good. Okay. And there have been tons of bands before van Halen and after van Halen there, really good, man. They have the whole thing going on. They've got the cool riffs. They've got the great songwriting. They have the the great frontman. Great background. Vocals. Awesome rhythm section. You know? That's like that's a given. Like better have that you know. And that HALE, and of course, you know, the, you know, they they have all that, obviously, you know, but van Halen like for them. That's like that's just like the baseline. That's just like the an army baseline isn't a bass guitar. I mean, that's just the base line of of music for them mainly because of Eddie fucking van Halen. He's the this is what everybody doesn't realize is like I said, there's always great. There's been always group bands on it there. But how many of them have Eddie van Halen in them one? I mean, Eddie van Halen is to van Halen as to what Jimi Hendrix was to the Jimi Hendrix experience. Mitch and no great musicians but without Jimmy Hendrix. They're just like kind of like a couple of cool guys who can. Play. Really, well, but they're not really anything special. What makes van Halen van halo? What made them special was Eddie fucking van Halen..
