"You know, as I mentioned, I'm 22 years old. And Dennis and I talk a lot about the generational differences between his and mine. And one of the ones that I've really been focusing on lately is the kind of music that we listen to. And I said in our last podcast, so many of us listen to the same type of music. Drake, Rihanna, Kanye West, Taylor Swift, and what's similar about all of these kinds of music is that number one, it's very energetic. Number two, a lot of the times it's violent, and number three, in most importantly, itself a grand iing music. The kind of music that my generation writ large listens to.

We mostly listen to this kind of self aggrandizing music that makes you feel like you are walking into a stadium and everyone is screaming your name. And I posit that the reason that we listen to this music is because many of us lack the emotional sophistication to be able to listen to a song like the ones that Dennis listens to or my parents listen to, songs that maybe have a slower tempo that are sad that make you think about things like your own death or your parents deaths or your children or for us when we're going to have children and just life in general.

There's a group of 17 of us that invested in land between halfway between huddle and Taylor next to an electric substation to build a 220 megawatts. Um, uh, reciprocating engine diesel type, uh, power plant because we know her cot is 5000 megawatts short of their capacity. That's why you've got everybody's is out of power. Uh, they're turned off because ERCOT doesn't have the reserves and they've been lying to the public. I've been telling everybody this. I even told it to the ERCOT leaderships face down in a South Texas conference. You 5000 megawatts. We wouldn't be having people out if they'd be building the reserve capacity. Yeah, I've got an air permit to build the plan. What's the name of the group? Give us. I mean, what's the name of the organization s so I could find more Which energy saying again ranks which energy? Brain switch energy. Okay, I went in, and 19 went in in 2000 and 15 and sat down with the guy that was ahead of Georgetown's utility and said, We'll sell you 108 megawatts of power or we'll sell you. The power plan are you talking about? We're gonna build natural gas. Natural gas. Is that what you're using? Yeah, it would be natural gas fired, but it doesn't use water. It's it's It's like a truck engine, but it's fired by natural gas. Yeah. Somewhere. Where you in this project where? Give me an idea. Where you in this project? I'm looking at your website.

That means that Texas environment T c E kids, The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has given us a clear permit to build the plant and run it. So what's the holdup? ERCOT has been pricing their electricity so cheap and telling everybody that we got plenty of capacity. It's a line clearly, we don't We don't have a good and I've been Go ahead. What? We almost had the same blackouts in in, um, in, uh, a year and a half ago in August we were that close to having blackouts, then. The cove. It reduced the demand this past summer, but you get a good cold spell like we get, and by the way, I was a two public utility commission in 1989. When we were about do rolling blackouts, which did happen not in Austin, but in the round rock area, and we I was discussing Getting the South Texas plan to come back online. It was in an adage within our seed for an emergency permit to bring in about half of their power capacity s O. I've been complaining that ERCOT Has been lying to the public. They don't have the reserve to meet these special conditions. Johnny John result, Johnny V. Had a chance to talk with Williamson County commissioners or anything like that. Judge Gravel.

Kim Kardashian Goes on Tweet Storm Against Taylor Swift
"Oh my God. It's only been one day since I reported on the Kanye West Taylor swift phone call situation and I'm already like Oh fatigued by like it was fun yesterday and now. I'm just like really. We're still talking about this. Maybe it's because they didn't have coffee today. Maybe it's because we're in the middle of a pandemic but yesterday it was fun today. It is emotional. Labor and I will be invoicing Kim Kardashian and Taylor swift and Kanye West for my countless hours. Spent thinking about phone call gate anyway. Kim Kardashians like freaking out on twitter. She's like posting up a tweet storm about this Why is tweeting about it? I think she she's like upset. That Taylor posted an instagram story. So let me I tell you Taylor Swift's instagram post Taylor posted on her story writing quote instead of answering those who are asking how I feel about video footage that was leaked proving that I was telling the truth the whole time about that call. You know the one that was illegally recorded that somebody edited and manipulated in order to frame me and put me my family and fans through hell for four years. Swipe up to see what really matters. And then if you swiped up you were sent to a link to donate to corona virus relief. I mean I don't have a major problem with this. I don't know Taylor's has barely like correct in what she's saying but she's capitalizing off of a major celebrity news story in order to give money to people who need it right now which listen. I don't hate. I totally support that. I think honestly more celebrities. Should we doing that right now? Anyway clearly this ticked Kim Kardashian off Kim went on a tweet rant after she saw Taylor doing mostly like an act of good and before I get into Kim's tweet storms have to speculate. Is Kim Jealous? That Taylor swift is like raising more money from her. Fans for Corona virus than Kim is like Kim Kardashian. As we all know famously is generously donating twenty percent of her shape. Wear line profits to corona virus relief but like my personal conspiracy theory. Is that not a single person has purchased shape. Wear so in my personal opinion. I think no one's buying shaper at where right now which means no one's giving money for him to donate to corona relief anyway. That's my long winded way of saying Kim was not happy with Taylor's post. She took to twitter and she tweeted a bunch of tweets. Let's see how many tweets Kim posted it six tweets in a row. I feel like for Kim. That's a lot for Kim. That's a lot okay. She wrote at Taylor. Swift Thirteen has chosen to reignite an old exchange that at this point in time feels very self serving given the suffering. Millions of real victims are facing right now. I didn't feel the need to comment a few days ago and I'm actually really embarrassed and mortified to be doing it right now but because she continues to speak on it I feel. I'm left without a choice but to respond because she is actually lying to be clear. The only issue I ever had around the situation was that Taylor lied through her. Publicist who stated that? Connie never called to ask for permission. They clearly spoke so I let you all see that nobody ever. The word was used without her permission at the time when they spoke the song had not been fully written yet but as everyone can see in the video she manipulated the truth of their actual conversation in her statement when her team she said she declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such strong with Sajjan his stick message. The lie was never about the word. Bit was always whether there is a call or not and the tone of the conversation. I never edited the footage and never lie only posted a few clips on snapchat to make my point and the full video. That recently leaked doesn't change the narrative and quote. Okay so like technically I think none of these people are in the right and I think that this is all weird and like I think they're all wrong they're all It's semantics game at this point at least Taylor shift is is getting donations for corona virus off of it. I don't know what Kim is getting out of speaking on this right now. Kim is just like making herself kind of look bad right now even though I don't even think Kim is wrong. She's just like she should have just said no ping like now. Everyone's kind of making fun of Kim Kardashian. But like hey if there's anything crash. Ian Doesn't mind it's when people are talking about her so I guess can you? Oh this whole thing has aged between probably ten years. I think I'm GONNA start sprouting. Some grey hairs from this. This is a this feud this futures fund but now it's now the fun is over and I'm getting old. I'm getting old
Kim Kardashian comes for ‘lying’ Taylor Swift amid reignited feud over Kanye West call
"My gosh the drama with his Kim Kardashian Kanye west Taylor swift thing that just goes on until the end of time there's more there's more okay so Kim Kardashian defending herself in a series of tweets last night hours after Taylor swift had something to say about the leaked video and if your call this video is of Kim and Kanye and the phone conversation that they were having with Taylor swift when Connie eight was calling tailor it to get the okay for him to reference her in the song famous okay and in that song he says I made that B. famous I think me and Taylor might still have sex those are the lyrics I've been memorized guys I didn't even know how to read that okay I don't know what that says about your it's not good J. so it's not it's not nothing's positive about it so in that in that phone conversation part of which was leaked years ago Kanye and Kim referred to Taylor as a snake later on saying you knew that these were the lyrics we had a conversation and you said that it was okay on the phone call and now when the song comes out you're all upset about it and Taylor said at that time and continue to say I never said it was okay for me to be referred to as a B. in this song that I was okay with it and so when the song came out she was upset she also never consented to have her naked body depicted in the famous video which was upsetting to her and I think yeah who are also depicted in that video then the entire conversation leaks and Kim Kardashian west after Taylor and essentially said yeah I was telling the truth the whole time weird Kim Kardashian west to post on Twitter I Taylor swift has chosen to reignite an old exchange but at this point in time feels very self serving given the suffering millions of real victims are facing right now no no and she said I didn't feel the need to comment a few days ago and I'm actually really embarrassed and mortified to be doing it right now but because she continues to speak on it I feel I'm left without a choice but to respond because she is actually lying come on yes how old how she why she lying this is Kim said to be clear the only issue I've ever had around the situation was that Taylor lied through her publicist who stated that Kanye never called to ask for permission they clearly spoke so I let you all see that nobody ever denied the word B. was used without her permission I know Taylor's publicist posted on Taylor's publicist and this is my unedited original statement but when you take parts out that's editing PS who did you guys piss off to league league that video quoted our pricing as of that yeah exactly and the publicist original statement said Connie did not call for approval but to ask Taylor to release his single famous on her Twitter account she declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric I made that B. famous I mean isn't it just one thing after another over and over again yeah the bottom line is I mean it just makes Kanye and Kim looks so that's fast buyer so that my wifey spiraling and then also you know when you think about this sort of image that they're trying to portray now in Connie's doing these Sunday services and talking about his faith in all of this stuff I mean when you look at this situation and how Connie his treated Taylor swift throughout the years it just makes him look so bad yeah and it's so hypocritical I mean even those lyrics to begin with are are really tough to handle if you're calling yourself a person of faith you know nothing a person if he has to be perfect us to do everything but like that's kind of a lot guys don't you think about a specific person not all for sure yes you're basing your right now if you're kind of like having a spiritual transformation and and basing your life on this I'm going to follow in the path of Jesus I just don't think that that really lines up well yeah hi will remain silent on that one but it's it's it's seems very hypocritical to me it seems hypocritical seems very hypocritical so that's what's happening that's the latest the back and forth continues but I don't blame Taylor swift for just she wasn't the one that released this new edited version an awfully somebody on Kim and Kanye's
