"I felt you know you have that you know. Get an education. You gotta go to the top school. You have to look a certain way. And so i didn't know that it was something that was already in me and there was something about putting on that padding and swishing my hips in the room and telling that ban. It's what i say. What i say goes and my listen to your heart. Model listens to the voice inside of her. This something about playing ma that became an affirmation for viola. Because i've always been the shy girl but there is a feeling when you reach a certain position where i met at that. There is a power that you need to harness and my helped me to harness the viola power that feeling that i deserve to be in the room the feeling that i deserve all that i received in my life because i worked for it. I came away from watching performance thinking first of all in awe of what it took you to do it. And my sincere deep belief that you had brought her to life through your immersion into her and also just like i just thought about all the black women of that time and what it would take to be the kind of woman who could say you going. Give me my money absolutely and that is where we come from and we come from that. That's the stuff we come from. Yeah we do. We come from that zone of history. We coming from a history where black women were chattel. Yeah and if you read joyce guys post traumatic slave syndrome. All of that is rooted in our past. They'll get over it this strong off. They may have been traumatized in the past but they're like animals they just recovered very very fast. I'm sure that ma that that was her.

"Then when i came out on the stage the man screaming and sweating and saying oh wow look they were there an an w-we went to each and every one of those audience members and she explained the costumes the material that they were made from You know the time period. What was going on. And so by the time those actors came into the tent. They had stepped into the scene. Honestly because here's the thing oprah. There is a resistance to specificity. When it comes to black artists there is sort of either general notion of who we were or we exist in metaphor. But there's no exploring the absolute specificity of how they bought the tickets of what they were eating when they were sitting in that theatre where they were coming from how each of their hair what they were wearing how they would've thought about what they were gonna wear getting that hair done to show up for that performance absolutely and then to actually be there and to have people believe that i was who i was. Wow i can't say more than that. It's it's sort of was like nirvana and i'm a shy woman in general. I'm really introverted. So that was a lot to me to stand up in front of people and flirt with men in the audience. A lot for me. That's not me. I love the l. A. times review where they wrote resplendent in bold spang legaue nhs and she inform padding rubber. Her ma rainey is both a stellar performer and a mesmerizing object of contemplation. How much the costuming and the gold teeth. Also help you. What would help me believe that i was her. That's how it helped me. It helped me believe that. I wasn't by ola anymore. But i could soda disappear that i sort of you know as an actor you have to be an observer a thief right yeah you have to observe life in order to morph into it and the fact that i did not want to cover up my breasts as mob because i know that the women i knew who grew up you know and their breasts were hanging out. They just let him hang out. I never knew people who cover them. I didn't know those women. I actually didn't even know the people who even always mop their sweat after a while they mopped whatever and then they just let it drip. So did you do all of your own vocals for this phil. i didn't. I did some of them. I really did you know in hindsight. I wish i had more time. Because i would have done the vocals. I had very little time. Because i was. You know how to get away with murder you doing this at the same time. I'll know when. I you got the role then. I had just a couple of months to prepare. But i was still juggling how to get away with murder. It was the final season. Was the final episode. Yes it was a lot of juggling when you finished that last day and were in the process of beginning to let her go. I don't know how that shows up for you. Do you let her go on the day of the last shah. Yeah but when you had finished did you know you had served her. Well that you had brought her spirit alive in a way that people could receive it and know who she was in a way that we didn't before your performance. Did you understand that. Viola davis well oprah winfrey than i served the character. Well i will say this. I had one of the best experiences of my life..

Viola has become one of the most acclaimed actors of our time. Earning an emmy to tony's and an oscar commanding performances in fences doubt and how to get away with murder to name just a few have built her legacy after we taped. Our interview received an oscar nomination for best actress. Burma rainy first. Black woman in history to be nominated for four academy awards after. Tell you a quick story. When i was watching arrays on broadway years ago during intermission. Someone said oh isn't venetia shod marvelous and i said is she in this play. I saw that same production. Yeah so i must tell you. I felt that same way about you. Watching this film. I was watching with two of my daughter girl from south africa and that opening scene that is you know so boisterous and vivacious and i said who who is. Who is that one of the girls said you know who that is. I don't know who that is. Who is that. And they said oprah. It's you i went. Oh yeah i can see her in there now that you mention it but i'm telling you you were so immersed you were unrecognisable. Was that your goal. thank you well. That really is always my goal but this character is probably further away from me in terms of just the look in terms of everything about it so that is a goal you know you have to become another human being is what you have to become. Yes but you know. It's like that opening scene that opening shot. It took some time to make the decision in terms of the makeup and in terms of the look at took a leap of faith on my part. Because i did not want to make up to look pretty. I didn't One of the reasons why didn't is see the thing about our profession is an acting. You have to study life. it's gotta be about life and you know me and you know that life is messy right right and when studying marini people who knew her said that are makeup under the lights looked like it was melting looked like melting greasing. And then i thought. I thought about the fact that before this. She did coon face shows with her husband. Par rainy.

"Joining us is e alex cheung features writer for new york mag and vulture. Welcome alex i. It's great to have you here to talk about viola. I'm so excited to hear your picks but first a little bit of background viola. When she won her first oscar for best supporting actress for fences and twenty seventeen. She became the first black person to win the so so-called triple crown of acting a competitive advantage emmy and tony award because of this in how omnipresent she's been over the last decade including her turn in the blockbuster period piece the help and as the shady complicated lawyer least keating in the long running series how to get away with murder. It might be easy to forget that. She has more than paid her dues to get where she's at. Now she graduated from juilliard in nineteen ninety-three and bounce between theater and screen throughout the rest of that decade by the early offs. She'd become a reliable supporting actor. Popping up in steven soderbergh movies like solaris and playing rations on the mom rule or the urban professional. She spoken candidly about how being dark skinned. Black woman has impacted her career like in this interview. She did with tina brown in twenty eighteen. I have a career that's probably comparable to meryl streep julianne moore. Let's sigourney weaver. They all came out of jail. They came out of juilliard. They came on nyu. They had the same path as me and yet i am nowhere near them. Not as far as money not as far as job opportunities. Nowhere close to it. But even when she's taken on roles one might consider to be less than worthy of her talents. She's always done the work. And that's what we're going to discuss in this episode as we examined three key performances from her career. These aren't all necessarily her biggest or most well known characters but they're essential to understanding what makes her such a force onscreen so before we dig into these three specific performances. I love to get your takes. Just initial thoughts on by as a whole glenn. Why don't we start with you. Well the word. I keep coming back to is intelligence. And it's a very specific species of intelligence. It's grounded Slightly world-weary intelligence that comes out of self awareness and self knowledge now. Look she's a great actor. I'm sure she could play someone really silly or flighty or self deluded. But that's not what you go. Viola davis for Whoever she's playing sees the world around her as it is iranian a perfect example of that. And that'll add layers to any performance but on a show like how to get away with murder which makes her do and say some very over the top ridiculous things. None of that show works. If you don't have viola davis planted there with both feet grounding that show and that's how a line like why is he a penis on it. Did girls phone is a great line woodland no matter who said it when she says it. It's iconic that is a classic line. I'm so glad you got that. And i completely agree glenn alex out you especially that line as another line that we'll talk about in widows. There are certain lines that it feels like only she can say and she can pull it off because she has obviously a lot of words at are thrown around the gravitas or the pool to make you pay attention to give something and under girding of seriousness to however ridiculous or operatic robot the actual proceedings may be. What's been interesting to see for me. Has been the ways in which her role choices as of late have been in some ways coinciding with a public persona as well around trying to take power and trying to make space for herself in hollywood that has historically dismissed her and i think that that has been kind of like interesting tension both in terms of what she's taking And then how those roles play out against the backdrop of the industry. Yeah i think that's a great point and it's a great segue into the first choice that we have here which is mine and it is far from heaven now. You might have forgotten that she was in this movie She has a very small role If you haven't been in a while or you don't remember that well. It is the todd haynes film from two thousand and two it is Basically in a mogae very very explicit. Oh my gosh to the douglas. Sirk melodramas of the nineteen fifties specifically imitation of life. and all that heaven allows and stars. Julianne moore and dennis quaid as a nineteen fifty suburban couple with a lot of secrets between them and viola. Davis plays sybil their housekeeper. Now this is a very very small role. It's a role that i think. If you're not really paying attention to its it can easily pass she by. You can cast it off as a very insignificant moment in viola davis career. But i think having watched it and watching it very closely. There's a lot that she does. That is so subtle and small and takes this. What could have been stereotypical role of the made in the two thousands of all places and really adds gravitas. As you mentioned. alex. I think is part of what is so interesting about it. We also know that simple is always privy to. What's going on because she's always there. She's taking care of their children. Most of this is done not by dialogue. But by the way in which davis you know cast a glance exchanges glances with other black characters in the film and i think it really works well in this a to the douglas sirk phones because so much of it is subtext. And then at some point it becomes taxed by the end of this film. A pivotal moment. Where davis davis's character tells julianne moore something that she knew and i think it's just a really smart performance and there's a moment towards the end. Where after the julia more character and The dentist character have to force or are getting a divorce where they have this exchange between each other and let's take a little listen to this clip civil. You'll need to do that. I know it's friday but there's so much to be done now. I can hardly expect to be polishing tables reason not to keep things no reason at all. Don't forget the grocery lists thank you on her side. So if you hear that part julianne moore says. I don't know how on earth ever managed and she likes stops herself halfway because she catches a glance of viola davis. And it's like well. I know how you manage. Because i've been here the whole time lady like i'm doing all the work and so i really love just the way in which even with a small role she gives all of this emotion and thoughts and make sure the main character is smarter than the white characters around her think she is and it's kind of a nice also precursor role in the help a few years later which you couldn't pay me to re watch that movie. There are a lot of like undertones from that And there's like a line between that and the help in which i actually think that her character is treated with a little bit more dignity here than she is in the help Glenn and alex. I don't know how recently you've rewatch the film. But how do you feel about her role in this movie. Will you pick that because yes it's a small part but it underscores it kinda breaks. Open that film a weird way because of course it is as you say no majd. Douglas sirk melodrama and is a very stylized kind of acting that he kind of has people go into and uses. The measles saw uses the lighting of the costumes of that. The very specific genre and has viola davis undercut that by acting more naturalistic than melodrama typically.

The Problem With Track & Field World Records

"What goes into a world record. Obviously it has to be an incredible performance. Everything has to come together just right. They don't happen very often. When bob beamon broke the world's record in the long jump in nineteen sixty eight. See my previous episode about that. The conditions were perfect. He had the maximum allowable. Tailwind it was at a high altitude in mexico city. He had perfect form and he put together his best jump ever at just the right time since the advent of competitive athletics nine thousand nine hundred twelve. The international association of athletic federation's has been keeping world records in every event. There's been a progression of world records. As people of incrementally bested previous performances. Most world records are only broken by less than one percent. The greatest single increase in a world record was the aforementioned bob beamon jump which beat the previous world record by six point five percent so that is sort of the world record of world records. Each event has a very different progression in how frequent and how recent world records get set. And this gets into the real heart of what i wanna talk about. You should expect to see world records being broken at a slower and slower rate over time as humans. Approach the limit of human performance should become harder and harder to break records. Records will require more luck and more people who have the perfect physique in the very peak of their careers. But this isn't quite what happened in some events there hasn't been a new world record set in over thirty years. You're shulte set the world record in the men's discus in one thousand nine hundred eighty six at seventy four point zero eight meters to put that into perspective. The gold medalist in the two thousand nineteen world championships had a distance of sixty seven point. Five nine meters a full six point five meters or twenty one feet short of the world record the men's hammer throw was also said in nineteen eighty-six yuri set up of the soviet union through the hammer. Eighty six point seven meters. The two thousand nineteen world champion through it. Only eighty point five meters that six point two meters less than the world record. The oldest existing world record in track and field is the women's eight hundred meters. Your meal acrostic viola of czechoslovakia set a world's record finishing the eight hundred in one minute. Fifty three point two eight seconds. That's almost five seconds. Faster than the two thousand nineteen world champion. You might have noticed something that all these really old records have in common. They're all held by athletes from former communist countries. If you're thinking that these records might be tainted by performance enhancing drugs. You aren't alone.

After he died that i went on the hospice page and they had a whole section. That talked about how to help. Someone die that they will have dementia and they will see people that have passed before then they would literally call up their names and you have to validate them. You can't just say it's delusional because what that is is once again. It's the word permission. They're asking for permission to cross over. I didn't wanna look at that. They just want you to hold their hand. I didn't wanna look at that. They just want them lips disdain. Moist wanna know that no one tells you about death. No one talks about it still to literally see a parent take their last breath and a half the sit there and go daddy. It's okay to go. And then at his funeral. I remember when we close the casket in my nieces and nephews had all these pitchers put an cast it with them as beautiful and i looked in the casket in didn't have any shoes on and i was pissed. I was like we paid you all this money up in my brain because i was about to custom out and you didn't put any shoes on. My dad looks great. We didn't put shoes and the next stop was. He didn't need shoes. That encapsulates life does. Okay what anyone it does after he died. You're not thinking about how pissed you all you're not thinking about. He was an alcoholic. You just thinking about the fact. That i loved him. He was my father and he's gone and then you're thinking about forgiveness. You're thinking about mercy. You think about all those things that nobody teaches you about in life. There's no other way to measure life. Wills life down to absolutely the essentials of really what makes life and what makes joy. I would say that would be it it. It leveled me defined after these big moments in your life you can take them with you into the evolution of who you are oft them. Are you aware of practicing those things. That you've observed i do but then i had to move through life and someone comes along and knocks my ass down now i now i mean it's a war of attrition learned at the time yeah absolutely. It's it's difficult. But i do and i'll tell you when i do people notice when i came back from africa. Everyone notice the shift. So i know i bring it back. But then i got to navigate through life. Yeah you know what my daddy used to say. He said i don't know why. Keep aiming for one hundred percent of everything he said. This is the biggest misnomer we should be aiming for like fifty eight percent sixty if that's let that be one hundred percent because it's never. You're always going to be disappointed. You never gonna get it right. And he was like. It isn't have lowest standards. It's just appreciate that. That is a set percentage of life that is mostly circumstance or locker. Whatever you wanna call it. This is not going to go away. And in order to not be buffeted by that constantly sort of hold true to the smaller amount that you are sure of all.

You know what. I'm going to have to say at twenty five. When i went to africa for the first time i went to the gambia west africa for two weeks. And i was at juilliard. Juilliard gave me a scholarship. Twenty five hundred dollars. Because i guilt them into it. It's very eurocentric training at juilliard. And i said it was suppressing me so much. It was tethering me so much that i no longer knew. My voice was. I sort of had lost my identity in trying to make me and my blackness disappear in george bernard shaw and strindberg and chekhov and shakespeare. I just didn't know what kind of artist i was supposed to be if i couldn't use myself and my voice so they gave me a scholarship and i went to africa when i was twenty five to study the dance music folk glove four different tribes in changed my life. It just changed my life and maybe it was because also had broke it up with a boyfriend right before and and so i was devastated. My god it was like a greek tragedy. You know. I look back on that now and said well. Why don't you just go to to mcdonalds or something. Just have a drink. Now go to gambia. Gambia ghana palencia graphical. Over this hop break. I went to the gambia. And it was transformational like that. Radical shifting that takes place in your life. It just takes you by surprise because it's the power Rituals that worked for me. It was the getting in the car every single day. And singing this song and dances and the rituals that were about finding one's valued or becoming a woman or a baby surviving after seven days when i saw those kenya. Women in the men dinka tribe in africa. They were infertile. Women women who could not have children and they dressed as clowns oversized clothes makeup on their faces and they went into these compounds. Screaming shouting with the gym bay. Drums everybody would scream and shout with them. Dozens of people like a mob scene and then they pass a calabash around with food and then they sang the song and it translates to. I did not come here for food. My stomach is full. I did not come in for food. I came for much more. And the whole ritual was about pardon the clouds of heaven making so much noise that god would hear the deepest pain of not being able to have a child and somehow poor down the blessing. It's like those types of rituals. That i took part in. That made me believe that there was something in the abstract world at i could. I don't know that. I could claim to define myself. I'm extremely moved by that amazing image. And i wish that we had more ritual around the hot things in the west the way that we live around death around infertility around loss around getting old. Did you feel that. The ritual itself or the community performing the ritual created the scaffold. Upon which you could actually have something to yourself to that. When you came back you would still be connected. I love that question. I know exactly what you're saying. And i think that's a great question. It was more of the community. The connection it was more of being seen. I mean i'm a dark skinned woman. From the moment you come out of the room and use step forth into the world you get all the values associated with being dark skinned and then being at juilliard with a deep voice. Dark skin wide nose. Big lips it's like you're.

That are exclusive. I'm telling you. I'm gonna get my baseball bat and all common stars swinging around if you good either way to t- because you don plenty of that i'm going to stick to these questions first question. What relationship real or fictionalized defines love or mercy. Oh i know shadowlands. Fat film is about redemption. And the idea that love is not the absence of pain and with with so conditioned to believe that that. It's supposed to be the absence of pain that it's meant to be joy and happiness in this. It redeems. love redeems does reading. And it's not based in mystery a friend of mine at her wedding. She said something absolutely beautiful with her vows. She told her then she said i promise to love you exactly as god made you and i think that that's i mean i watch my mom. Sit by my dad's day bid when he was dying pancreatic cancer and he would he would just scream her name every two seconds may- alice malice balas and she would say dad. I'm right here. It say oh oh and then shoot. Hold him and for me that that's it. I've been with my husband twenty one years and all those things that probably are not in the sexy romantic comedies. All the things that i value someone who's gonna be there when you sake someone who literally yunos good. Hold your hand when you're going someone who like i said just simply loves you. I mean my mom and dad together for forty eight years and at the end of his life. It became her telling him to go. There is something for me in terms of the kind of love. I have now from my husband. It's not about hence sealer and tight ebbs and you deserve what question which you must like onset. Oh man i'll tell you that right now. Why are we so cruel to each other. I please answer that question to me. Why are we so dishes if you would ask anyone. What's the most vicious animal in the world. I mean they probably swift say the black mamba over you know a female lion an adult the two legged variety the depths to which we are cruel. And here's the thing. The thing that is really really really interesting is were cruel and we know how hard life is we know the road and even after knowing the road we go back and the level of judgment how we saw the don't protect each other how we think of killing someone will make us feel better. I mean i don't know. There's no measure of cruelty men towards women black towards white. And i think there's a human answer to genuinely the closest i ever came to understanding at. Was this extraordinary. Geneticist called michael winston. Who was of the team who isolated the gene initially and we were saying backstage going on a english talk show. It was years ago. The iraq war was happening And i was talking about just the share loss of innocent life and he said he's a christian a devout christian and he has also you know this extraordinary scientists and he said. I've always felt the nexus of my spirituality and science comes in truly understanding that you in the universe and scientifically you literally cannot have one without the other each thing has its counterpart nine day good and evil and he said however simplistic it sounds. It is part of this this order. We experience it so harshly. We also experienced joy so profoundly as human beings but our cruelty to each other. I don't. I don't think we understand it or measure in human terms. Because i think it's it's an energetic. Its energy that was set in motion by god source energy. Whatever you want to and and so it is and so. They're always to to everything i mean. That's the only way i could ever. That was the closest. I got my head to get around it. Being a theater geek. I remember the one thing. I was taught that stayed in my head was the divine right of kings. The hierarchy to which people feel like they're born and the whole idea is to be in a position in in terms of status as high as possible. Because then the only one you're answering to is god. You're basically dancing with god and everyone else's beneath you when men make sense of their own existence there is something about status. I always say the bumper sticker in the eighties. It was on the back of everyone's car that said he who dies with the most toys wins. The ego is that what is is it is ego. it's. I don't know who i am unless i have my foot on someone else's neck status is your social standing above another person to gives you meaning and value. It's a powerful. It's a caste system. But i agree with you. I think it defies understanding. I always say. I wonder what the caveman thought. That caveman who didn't have a computer couldn't speak didn't have any clothes he's standing there. He's looking at the ocean. He's looking at the sky. what is he thinking. How is he making food stamps or where. He's or. how can run away from the tailgate. That's.

#183 Jamie Lerner Self-Care: If You Dont, Who Will? - burst 03

"We just are and were very well equipped to do it. And it's also interesting about reinvention. Is that we lose a lot of something. That is very important along the way which is south care so women are masterful in reinventing themselves and then they also are masterful in forgetting themselves. How did how did how did he know. We're going to make a transition to self care. I mean seriously on my sheet in front of the next. The next bullet point was self care and you made a wonderful trenches transition to it. So that is what. I'd like to talk about now. And and focus probably the majority of our time is self care and personal responsibility and and especially in this current cova time of chaos and confusion and and one of the things that you told me about when we chatted before the podcast was that you described your passion. Your current passion for helping people find themselves in the moment. Can you tell me what that what that means to you. Find yourself in the moment every moment that we can be present and it is just a moment by moment and establish or reestablish connection with ourselves that that is the ultimate in self care and and i think a lot of that comes from being able to manage our thoughts and then are feeling but first and foremost our thaw and i think it's important cut. We rarely slow everything down and allow ourselves to be in that moment contain. That's why one of the most important things of how we can care for ourselves and then others it's always about foul firth and then others. It's kind of a win win for everybody. Jesus talks about that. When he says you know i it's always quoted love god and love your neighbor but what's always left out is love. Love your neighbor as yourself and to me that assumes self love precedes other love the cacao kangaroo barber care for another if they're not taking care of yourself self love is sort of. it's almost frowned upon that. You are selfish. You are ego centric if you do that and and if you take care of yourself too much and yet and yet if you don't take care of yourself you're you're no good to anyone else you know want when you could on the airplane they tell you to put your mask on on first before assisting other people and there's a reason for that. That is a universal truth. We cannot care for anyone until we care for ourselves without feeling resentment and if we feel is not much then we are not caring for ourselves or another. So you know. I think people don't really understand what it means to wrap third loving arms around themselves and nourish and nurture themselves into connection. That is the most unselfish thing that you can do. And in some ways it sure responsibility if you're then going to assume the care of others whether be children or a teacher or if you're in any role where you're in a leadership role it's just not possible to do it without having spent some time with yourself and nourishing yourself and if they're self some something to give agree with you on that and i was thinking about taking care of ourselves. There's there's just a number of of ways to do that in you know we're going to get into tactics toward the end of the Of the of the of the show. But right. Now i i'd like to disorder. Get a big picture of what do you mean by taking care of yourself. I know account. I have an idea of what i need by but but i'm curious what your interpretation is kind of goes hand in hand with taking personal responsibility to understand that really. It is known responsibility to care for your responsibility to begin to have an understanding of what year in the evening for yourself and then to figure out a way a gentle loving way to kind of implement some of that self care and most people do the opposite. They expect other people to care for them. They don't even know their own news. They expect others around them to know what they need and they expect that they should be given what they need. There's this really Twisted sense of entitlement. just because the very I think the other interesting thing about women reinventing themselves then they get to hide behind all of the roles that they've taken on as they never care for themselves the end up feeling resentful. They ended up feeling overwhelmed. The end up feeling all the things that they should be feeling and yet known even knows what they need. Not even know. They haven't even taken the time to figure out like okay but only know what i need for my. What do i need to do first thing in the morning but the guy can so myself up before we take care of all these other people so to step into that role of personal responsibility for sending the morning and ask yourself now. What are what. I need so myself. That is such a loving and lovely question to ask one and then to answer it with you. Maybe coffee before. I serve an to eat something before i i just some basic things. That really remind us that we're important. How counter cultural that is because we you know we're we're thinking we always have to be givers don't we we. We can't be. we can't be takers. we can't be an it's not even really taking it's it's more of. You're giving love from an empty cup and you've got to fill that love your love cup for yourself because unless you do you end up resenting the very people that you are serving and it doesn't feel good on your and it doesn't feel good on there and either never feels good to be given some things from someone who is representing you in the process so yet to unconditionally give to hand. That is a lovely feeling for the giver and the receiver and the way we get there is by taking care of ourselves so that we can give which hand alternate goal to feel good about the giving and to feel good about the person who is receiving what your kid i have for the last year been very involved on my own in in the in the sort of tradition node as mystic christianity and the mystics and and and i'm reading people of the thirteenth to fourteenth century teresa viola saint john of the cross and and teresa viola sort of my my guru. Now and she was. She was in the fifteenth century. And they talk about spending this time in divine contempt mystical prayer. But she is very strong that you do that in doing that. You are taking care of yourself your relationship with yourself yourself in the divine how how you relate in the divine but that that then becomes the resource for helping others that so you don't you don't just folk off. Yeah you don't just focus on yourself and forget everybody else. You have to focus on yourself but then the result is it results in a self care you. You can't help but want to share that with other people tackle once again. It's a win win for every beautiful idea. Now you want. You talked about personal responsibility in that. And i've even thought about making when i make a title for this show and we'll see what happens after the show. They make the title. But i i'm working on a premise of the me. Look at my own title here. Self care your responsibility to be responsible for yourself. Well is it so you would. You says it's good. I'm glad you agree because you're not title if you said no i don't believe any of that however it's a turn off for people a lot of people do not want to be responsible from south. They feel resentful that they should have to be responsible for themselves. They feel entitled that others should be responsible for their happy. And i think that it just needs to be thought about in a different way because who would know better for you than you know and yet we expect others to know what we need what. We consider south for first and foremost look. We need the great question. People don't ask themselves that question very often. But do you want. Don't ask themselves that either but people will tell you all day long what they want and what they get is more of what they don't want so and it's always someone else's all so you know if that doesn't work very well that way no it doesn't and and how in the world like you said if we haven't even really investigated pin through the thought process of understanding what we want and what we like in life. How in the world is someone else supposed to know that you know great costal one and yet we expect them to set us fai our needs and we've not identified their their needs. I mean our our needs and how they need to respond. You know My listeners heard have heard this before. But my wife. And i for probably. We've been married thirty six years and for at least twenty five of those. If not more. We take every year between christmas and new years now. This happens throughout the year but we take an intentional time of three days away so we can have two nights in one place. You know two full days in place and we ask each other So how was i. What kind of husband was last year. What kind of wife was i. And and what do you want from me. How can i serve you in helping. You find. You know helping you fulfill your needs and so we're forcing ourselves to identify our knees and until the other person. This is what i would like fantastic. I mean that's that's a conscious of our relationship a nice guy. Yeah yeah you know a lot of good writing on that jamie is. Are you familiar with the land baton. Elaine de button depends on how you want to pronounce it. The scarlet life. You know he's rich and really good stuff on that he's ridden maybe the best stuff of love between a man and a woman as anyone is written for you know. He's just barely turned forty now but he just has has exceptional writing on that. You know what i wanna do. I i want to go a bit deeper but before we do. I'd like to take a quick break. And then we will come back. And we're going to pursue a little bit more about this personal responsibility and how the victim mentality may come into play in that. Hi there this is charlie hedges. And you're listening to the next with charlie and my very special guests. Today's jaime lerner A woman who is a therapist adventurer pleasure seeker and a cute devil tae of self care. And that's exactly what we're talking about. And and i think she has so much teaches that i've learned so much from jamie and jimmy. We've talked about a bit about personal responsibility. And that letting other people know not expecting other people to somehow somehow be able to read our minds in our souls and understand what we need. We need to articulate that. What other kinds of personal responsibility you know. We're talking about our own personal responsibility and our self care. How can i take responsibility for myself. Do you have any examples of that for me now. I think that away are rewarded in society. Forbidden since Mainstream media that. They reminded us every moment. That's come we are the victim of everything. We have no control so for me. I always suggest to people to turn off the television and to Find a new source. That is a little more emotionally intelligent. That will allow us to feel good when you're done breathing. You're listening to or watching in fetter feeling paralleling cars. We have to take personal responsibility for what we are chasing to consume and hall. We will fail one way or done firmly cloud video. You know that's brilliant. You know is that we have to take responsibility for what we consume in our media. And and i find pretty much nothing but danger when not not just. Tv in general but for me. It's tv news and tv news. You know their their purpose is to stir up controversy in stirrup.

"Can have a blizzard. But anyway i made a joke earlier on social media comparing our governor greg abbott to snow miser It all makes sense the snowstorm the way he is screwing everything up and that got that song stuck in my head like in a loop. I was at work today and and so much to wear on instagram. It actually got traction like. I got plenty of people liking the pros. And even people commenting i was like. Wow this really head. I guess snow miser is everything. Yeah it'd be. it's a fun movie. I i really do like those All bozon christmas films It's that's not what we're talking about gaming guys gave me lot start with something that is very uplifting so i got a review key for those game called viola and i. I got the subtitle of it wrong. The the heroine's journey. I keep calling him a heroin. It said a a dose of drugs as but know what this is abou a low girl name. Biolo- she is playing the violin at her. How i mean starts off of. They're playing the violin alone feeling upset because she suck said as like okay. What am i gonna do. My mom's not here. My dad has not here. I'm alone and her being upset. Gets away what you'd say. You have your finger the heroine's melody. Oh the heroine woj. okay. I'm looking at it right now. Anyway g gets whisked away to fantasy world filled with all these different magical humans in half humans and whatnot in the thing what she discovers that she bell our of a portal that also unleashed all these different monster is onto the land and she's got a team up with all these different cast of characters and to stop the evil forces. Seal the hole and get back home kind of of a simple like that starts on pretty light hearted. There's a lot of humor a lot of characters. I mean your first two companions in one's a half wolf human who is just super friendly a kind of like a bay max tapeh companion and then a dirty kid. He was half cat half human. He's wearing like a cute hat Hoodie you get those two lake going around with you. M you occasionally get two more characters What the whole theme of this is music. 'cause she wants to be a musician.

Our direction is based on the melody of music at and also all the companion characters. They got their own instruments to because one of the big game play aspects to. This has that you have nine different songs that you play in to get around to the world like there'll be a certain point like gang through a waterfall or unlocking. It's another passage. Involves you playing a short music message. That's getting the notes down. Which i mean the game tells you what the note sarasota. Like your coolest gone okay. What am supposed to press now.

Strong, Black, and Hot Enough To Give You Second Degree Burns

"Lack women oprah beyond saying and all your favorite reaction means. I've heard people say they like their women like they like their coffee. Strong black hot enough to give you second degree burns. Careful what you wish for darius but the thing is not all black women are strong and even the ones that are strong aren't just that we doors open for us to especially with someone with biceps like michael jordan. Ads like michael jordan. Hare like michael b jordan but unfortunately a strong black woman stereotype is rained in american culture. It has a long history. About as old as morgan freeman and batty white combined now you may be wondering what is a strong black woman is the idea that black women are emotionally resilient naturally selfless to browns ask for help and can succeed with no resources so basically every care to play by viola davis. The irony is the strong black woman. Stereotype was started by black women to combat all the negative ones the in the aftermath of slavery there were really only to stereotypes of black women. You were either from sex temperatures jacksonville or a man who was just there to smother people in booze in response black suffragette mary. Church terrell point strong black woman motto listing as we climb and i get what she was going for butt lift as we climb even bodybuilders. Don't do both at the same time. You expect a black woman to do more than swertz nigger in his prime but overtime society shrank of black woman down to just her strikes and the popular conception now is that black women can bear and overcome any birth. We see all over our culture in movies like the color purple who my life. And how can we forget ghost. We're whoopi goldberg literally has to let a white man. U's her body to rub foreheads with his fiancee. Even when black women only have one line strong as hell move you will be moved. Damn at least let her say hello. Let's all say what's wrong with being perceived as strong. Isn't it a good thing. No not if black women destroy their mental and physical health trying to live up to it and not people think black women are so strong they make them do all the work on their own. Look stacey abrams. She helped democrats win georgia and before you knew it. Using active vaccine distribution the new york. Subway and kim and guy is marriage. The stereotype even reaches the doctor's office. Black women are less likely to be properly diagnosed. They have a much higher maternal mortality rate. And they're less likely to be believed about their symptoms and pay so a black woman basically has to be a doctor to know everything that's going on with her body and then convinced another doctor that that's what's happening. I was in. a car. Accident lacerations and internal bleeding a morphine drip and prep surgery stack. We'll get you a couple of bandaids. you'll be fine. What's so the next time you see a black woman struggling at work or trying to lift the box help her. Don't just stand there like you're about to see wonder woman in action in fact if you're in the new york area moving this week and i could use some help moving my couch because i'll be damned if i'm going to back lifting my own couch.

I get So I wasn't surprised because I remember. I feel like you guys weren't loving it. I feel like I liked the second season more. Then most people did. But eh, so I'm not. I'm not surprised because I didn't feel like it had the same critical acclaim that season. One did when it felt very unexpected, But I guess I would be surprised just because you think of the total Number of releases this year, which didn't seem like a ton. I don't know. I just feel like this Christina Applegate, especially and Linda Cardellini. They're just So good. There's like so much great. So many great performances out there.

GameStop Reddit-rally sends Wall Street tumbling to its worst week in months

"In late January, a handful of unlikely Wall Street stocks began to skyrocket in value. It has led to big market volatility, and that will be the subject of a special meeting tomorrow with Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and other government regulators. As Paul Solman reports, the spike in these stocks was driven. By an unconventional group of traders who banded together on a buying spree determined to take on the market for their own reasons. It is the latest in our economic Syriza's making sense. The frenzy. Obviously, this thesis is based largely on the fundamentals, Internet chatters hyping and buying stock and seemingly more a bun companies and you're right. It doesn't make any sense at all. AMC Bed, bath and beyond, and the bubble Gamestop crazy, and we're not as dominant as everyone thinks we are. We know what we're looking for. Is the regular Joes versus Wall ST Joe's using the free app Robin Hood to buy Gamestop, a money losing brick and mortar monger of video game disks that seems obsolete now that games are bought and downloaded online. And yet the stock skyrocketed last month, we're going to try to explain what's been happening with Alex Seamus from the University of Chicago Business School and my grandson show violas 17. So Alex set the scene for us What's been going on? There's people on this platform called Reddit, who decided to buy up a lot off the stock a lot of shares, partly because people hedge funds on Wall Street started short selling it. Okay, before we get into that, Joe, So I remember taking you to game stop when you were younger to buy you video games as kind of nostalgic appeal. Absolutely. And I think a lot of people my age in a little bit older grew up with Gamestop and I'm seeing a lot of people on platforms such as red It were saying isn't bye Bye Bye and Gamestop Two reasons one to make money, and the other was to stick it to the rich elite of the hedge funds. Hedge funds that have been betting against retro games stop by shorting its stock that is Now. In keeping with the retro theme, Alex suggested a retro product to visualize short selling. So here I've got an iPod, which I scrounged from somewhere in my basement, right, so on iPods kind of late game stop, it was very popular in the two thousands. And, you know it's not a bit obsolete because you know everybody's got music on their cell phones. So how do you short sell an iPod? So let's say I'm a hedge fund, and I think that the iPod is worth less than what it's being currently sold for. I go to you, Paul and I say, Can I borrow your iPod? So what I do is I sell the iPod that I just borrowed from you. And then buy it back for the future price. So if the price goes down, I make money because I'm basically getting the difference between that You just want me to lend it to you. I'm gonna borrow your your iPod. And I promise I'm gonna give you a little bit extra money whenever I return it. And to promise contractually to return my iPod by a certain date or whenever I ask for it back, So now you get wind of this short selling Joe. And what do you do? Okay. I grew up with this product. It's got a certain nostalgic value. I'm going to tell lots of my friends on social media may be read it to go out and buy iPod so we can all get in on the trend. What happens to you The hedge fund, Alex so because I Embedding that the price as actually going to go down in the future. If it ends up going up. I end up losing money because I have to buy it for Maura than what I sold it for initially and as you buy it, you're driving up the price even higher. Exactly, And that's what happened with game stop. $18 a share just last month. My grandson bought one share last Wednesday. And what price $293 I want to point out that I did not advise on this trade. I'm thinking that as more people are saying on social media that they're going to buy the value is going to go extremely high. Well is that I want to continue to stick it to the man, these people in Wall Street who have been running everything. And sure enough out on the street. I think it's great that rich people are losing money because capitalism is destroying this world. I look at the whole game stop with stocks is a revenge of the nerds. Kind of attack. This is one of the most complex attempts to coordinate on a single strategy that I think we've ever seen a sort of people's hedge fund says he must coordinating on the Reddit Forum. Wall Street bets. Urging one another to buy with rocket ship Emoji is which is to say, Look, this asset is going to keep going up so everybody should buy and toe hold with diamond hands. We are not going to break. We are going to keep the price up, and there's even a buy and hold sea shanty with diamond hands. They knew they profit if they could only hold But hold on most Wall Street. Hedge funds aren't short sellers. They bet on stock's going up. And in this case, some hedge funds have actually profited hugely from the so called revenge of the nerds, as have Robin Hood's paying customers, big investors, many of them hedge funds, who, by information from Robin Hood, about what people there are trading As for short sellers, are they bad actors? Sure, they bet against a parent losers like Gamestop, but also against frauds like the infamous end Ron, which short sellers helped take down nearly 20 years ago. By exposing its phony

Cicely Tyson, her memoir just out, was active to the end

"This was not the news I was expecting to share with you. This is not how I was expecting the beginning of the show to start today as you just heard. Great actor Cicely Tyson died yesterday. She was 96. I spoke to her just a few days ago. You might have heard us talk on Tuesday. It was the day her memoir came out. It's called just as I am. I was saying to someone like Yesterday. I think one of the senior producers of the show does like how profoundly moved I was by Cicely Tyson. By her perspective, her presence, especially at 96. Also like her gratitude. You know, I complain about stuff all the time and to hear her go at the end of the interview. The last thing she said to me was Tom. I am so grateful For this moment. In time we talked about her early days, We talked about her career defining roles. We talked about movies like the Autobiography of Jane Pittman or and Sounder. We talked about her role in the TV series roots We talked about Everything you know, most recently she was and how to get away with murder. Miss Tyson's co star on that Syriza Viola Davis tweeted this last night and I wanted to read it for you quote. I'm devastated. My heart is just broken. I loved you so much. You were everything to me. You made me feel loved and seen and valued in a world where there is still a cloak of invisibility. Us dark chocolate girls. You gave me permission to dream. Cicely Tyson's accolades are too many to list here. Emmys, Golden Globes, A Peabody, a Tony and honorary Oscar mult multiple in the Deep Image awards. I mean, you know a million things. Had a clear vision. Mission to bring complex and nuanced black characters to the screen and on stage and tow uplift others who had dreams just like hers. When I got to speak to Cicely Tyson again just a few days ago. That dedication was crystal clear. I am so grateful. We got to bring you that conversation. So much of it is stuck with me and Especially the part where she talked about getting the presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama in 2016. That moment is a moment that will live with me forever forever. And someone pointed out to me not too long ago. That I was the last person and his administration to receive it. Okay on that, he said. He made that statement. And then, he said And she's cool, gorgeous one than I need, huh? That's pretty good. If that gets into your presidential medal, you know that's a good sign. That's right. Well, you know, maybe this is a good way to close it off your 96 years old now and, you know, I think a lot of people want to know about the secret to a long life. And in the book you talk about how celery juice and morning pull ups are part of a key role. But what what other advice would you give people? I think that when, uh You get up in the morning and you're fortunate enough to see daylight. You're blessed on when I get up, and I see daylight. I first thank God I go into my meditation. Another change, and that gives me the faith. The car I thank God first. Very sick needs a face and a trust to go on for another day. And I think that's the most important thing that one have Detective Thank God just seeing another day. I never thought I would like to be 96 years old. My God, Every member of my family is gone. I am so surviving member of my family, and I was not expected to be here past three months.

"The new city. Roselle new jersey. When i got to school as a freshman everybody just thought i who participate in never heard them so. Football is my first loss. I played freshman football. They moved up the jv and the jv coach made me made me who so from never planned basketball to be in the worst play on. My team is a freshman in three years time being the number one player in the country and the way the reason why i was able to do that is because her heart. I work you know saying stayed in the gym like i aid. Slip drink basketball. You know what i'm saying. And i saw the success that i was able to have get into the league outta high school and then playing for sixteen years. You know what. I'm saying that my biggest thing. The reason why you know reason why i was able to play that long is because our had the perspective like somebody at a young boy trying to take take my job because i remember as a rookie coming in the locker room looking at dale davis in reggie miller and all them dues and thinking to myself like embedded in them. You know what. I'm saying. So i just always remember that and remember that the next kid coming behind me is gonna look at our air until i are hearing civilians that good. I'm going to take spot. So i took that same attitude into cannabis. You know what. I'm saying. So for me bro. Like a never satisfied. You got off the team like they always like bro. You got to really take a step back like acknowledge what you've built but for me is always always thinking of somebody coming right. What i'm saying so it is. Actually i think that. That's that's that's what i bought into cannabis to the point where like i'm not going to become complacent in my team not going to be complacent i think we arrived. And y'all work for this company. No more you understand what i'm saying. Like we gotta keep pushing this thing and especially because being a black company we gotta be ten times better than those other companies. Anyway you understand. What i'm saying. So i gotta i gotta be the attitude of the team. Everybody rate iraq man. You're doing a damn good job at must say I have question. What do you think about oregon Legalizing crack so. I'm announcing show. We open it up a mess shop and third but now it's crazy. Take one i mean to me man. You just think about it. Broke put in perspective. Like if i have a drug problem right. I need help. I don't need prison right so you send in jail because they choose to smoke weed or smoke crack. Open ever like to me once again. Is that free labor shit. That's the business side of the jail. Aso and i like about oregon is. They're very proactive. And they feel like they taught it. Move away from that. You know what. I'm saying. So i you know hats off to organ. We have a business oregon. You know what. I'm saying so. You can put up a legal crack house in oregon you can only do the distribute gas legitimate or. I don't think so. Because i don't think you could distribute it. I think that's what they lock you up. Fuck a band gap the legal vanda. I try well. Nobody should try it. But i'm just wondering unless you oregon. You know what i'm saying. You good to get caught with it. That's for sure desk crazy. Legal crack. House krakow's bro. Twenty definitely have a draft crack has got is she can mean and the ingenuity of the you know the drive in the wheel of someone who don't have no money in their pocket but find a way to smoke all day that she takes ingenuity best shit. Is there a talent. I mean i think it's a uso. I think it's a gift bro. If you wake up on e- every day and spend fifty dollars on credit still. How in the fuck can you net. Make it to the fortune five hundred. You know what i'm saying. Is you invite me what you've been exposed to expect of. Yeah man so. I think you know the the the the the best thing that i see you doing and sending an example. Send an example. I for young men who may have a skill or love for for sports like basketball but the seat on the other side of that career. You have to be have the forethought to know how to continue your legacy row. We special people men and we just to your point light is it's been four hundred years of keeping us down that we don't acknowledge that you know what i'm saying. Is you know when you think about all these other industries and inventions and different things like that. Bro was black people in the rooms. That's real you know what i'm saying but we never get another credit so they own never let us know hospice we are. We are brilliant. We ought original. You know what i'm saying.

We have resources you have support. You know what i'm saying meaning us. You know what i'm saying. And we have the allow. We have to continue to push them and start holding them accountable to be better. You know what i'm saying. I think the. I think we could actually do it. Because i've seen life is about are change. I've seen it. Life is about leverage. I mean like you said you you you have net only change those lives but you've you've had success that success gives you a certain amount of leverage. Use their liberty for what you to be good. You know what i'm saying. That's what changes were you saying. All of us have skills and talents and abilities and whatever it is. You know what i'm saying. They gives us a certain amount of leverage. And whatever it is we do use their leverage to affect the world in a way that it will benefit people besides us. That's what changed.

"Some bills and stuff. That's on the table where they're trying to open. What were they Federally decriminalize. It's called the more act. Yeah so you know. How does that affect the industry. We're going to see man like you know how it is with everything right. You know everything has some goodness and bad to it right right so the good side of it obviously is going to expunge records. Okay is going to allow candidates to be that. Take a sponge of record it. Does the retro activity allow for someone who say may have done fade time on two different be. It's just for we though with that. Allowed them to sponge their record so they then could participate in the cannabis. industry best. The intention as an expert will studied exit. Yeah that's the that's the intentions of it. You know what i'm saying. Well we're trying to do is trying to get to the point where we can allow these people who lost their freedom something that was so demonized in whatever to now that is a billion dollar industry for them to be able to participate approaching trillions. Own choice so. I think i think it's going to be bigger than liquor and might be big in the pharmaceutical ami man i was talking to my partner who He he did to be awesome a on a bunch of weed and shit and he was. He was wondering you know. So you mean to tell me this is gonna let me spun to my record sir. Legally he actually wanna work with us at viola new. You know what. I think you take your. We need all the experts that we could get like for real men they ought to. They ought to experts like berlin. And say i got mad stories. But like i came i came into they liked. The industry used to shun the people that so we before the before the industry. That's the entrepreneur bro. Then leagues they. Bill they may billions in the black market. I want them on my team. I want that kind of entrepreneur working with me. He said they tried to push them out. And that's why a lot of those companies to me. They raise fifty one hundred two hundred million dollars and they didn't have anybody from the industry and that's why a lot of them out of business. Yeah right right. So what was the real turning point for viral. when did you recognize it. Okay we have something when it likes. Shot into high gear for me. I think it was in a it was in twenty years from your like twenty fourteen in the two thousand fourteen and for me it was when i finally got my cultivation down guide like when i finally realized we had our team really realize that we how to grow cannabis okay understanding cannabis at a high level and we also decided to be a concentrate company. Which at the time in colorado is only five percent industry right. You know what. I'm saying so taking that chance. If this is okay all right thank you. Would you have brought some fine samples that we will be sampling here. I light up when she took the violin. Massive leap above smoke on real quick. Believe i'll what stranded right is Is junk shot. Oji the nice. Oh gee for. Europe shadow. G tastes pretty good. Should get your right. Let's see how you visit man like what is the. What's the process to sell. We'd i mean. I know how to shit you done on. You know no fashioned way but like. What's the process now well. The process is not talking about farm-to-table differences. Now own it right or people like you know black people so you go to grow is basically you go straight to the grow as i say. Oh let me get to times. Nah i grow own stuff. Yes i'm i'm a real. I'm a real operator in his thing. You know what i'm saying. There's a lot of people that have that. Have you know approached that a lot of people that have approached which way and for like. I'm just gonna pull up on somebody and say i want to tons way you know and some market i think at the end of the day just depends on what market you right. Every market is different right. A market like california is pretty tough to go that whiteley was white labeling so taking that approach because the price of wheat is like the stock market saying bro pre pandemic like fire product. We can get it for like two thousand and twenty four hundred. Now since the pandemic sense in the about exotic. I'm talking about exotic exotic for to exotic for two to twenty four hundred you now. I said thirty six hundred forty eight hundred so at the end of the day. Just imagine you built your business on buying your exotic two thousand twenty four hundred now the market selling you gotta pay thirty six forty eight hundred. I will be upset. And you out of business a because the end especially in legal cannabis because now you gotta pass on that new price point to the customer that used to buy your shit for fifty dollars eight now you tell them you gotta spend. Eighty is hard to convince people to do that. So i believe that you know Insert markets meaning like california. You gotta grow your own shit. I'm saying so. That's what we in the process right now finding our own cultivation right now we are white labeling but we might leaving with partners where we actually give them a genetic so i give them the jump shot genetic nonstop. Give them the basic stranded. Give it to them to to scale to cultivated. I get a little bit Say here need attorneys exactly okay. So that's how i'm operating count everywhere we everywhere else. We are oregon. I grow all myself. Okay colorado. I grew up myself michigan. Agro myself to be maryland in missouri. Cultivate and all that shit myself. Congratulations man one. Time for the black man selling right way. You did what. I'm saying man not many times. You see that nicosia. We'd say minutes the right way eight-man and a lot of weed man in my life goes on but you know i must say you put a new spin on that motherfucker that staying. Gi she innovative too hard to go to this point. Got out of that. But that was the kicker right. A lot of negative did it. They ain't got shit on you. Not that room yes. So what do you think is going to take to have. More minority inclusion in kansas man.
