Should You Boost Your Ads or Just Use the Ad Manager?

"Or super committed to your success online. We've worked with them to a special offer just remarking school listeners all you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su, and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about if you should be boosting your ads or just using the ad manager but I I think we should define Neil what does boosting ads or the ad manager mean on I'll start with boosting ads. So boosting ads is a button for facebook specifically and other platforms have added a very easy way to promote content. But in the past you'd have to go into ads. Manager Find Your peace maybe you're on their page to find what you want to promote, and they don't take a long time to start promoting it. Now, you can just hit a button. I'll call it easy mode for promoting her stuff and that's boosting odds. But when it comes to using ad manager but I was talking about earlier, you actually have to go into a separate section inside of facebook ads, and then you have to go into the AD managers and if you don't. Know how to use it it can actually be daunting. Let's say your small business owner. There is a little bit of a learning curve there. So to me boosting ads initially super simple to do ads manager is a little more complex question is which one should you be doing and I think I'll started off by saying look if you are a small business owner and you don't have a lot of time to learn things right now and you don't have the resources to. Hire someone full time for this just use boosts and boost around. Let's say I'm a bakery shop owner and I deliver like cakes you. Okay. So I would just boost around my area and then boost coupons things that I can do is try to drive people to be aware of Mike Cakes that you can order on delivery. Neil I would recommend is like Eric mentioned. If you have time, you can get Wimmer Granular ads manager and you get more advanced, which allows you tend. To get a better Roi while I tell people is most people aren't going to have the time their knees boost feature. When you click the boost feature, don't just accept the boost you need to adjust the settings and then go from there. So with the boost feature, you can end up selecting things like your region, your budgets and all these little settings and I would recommend that you go through them before you just click except I think a really smart thing you can. Do I started doing this recently is you know we are pumping out a lot of content like this, for example, and so you know whatever content I tend to like on market to my teams. Hey, let's go ahead and boost this and here's the framework. The framework is let's say we do a video might say, let's put ten dollars a day to it for the next three days. So that ends up being three hundred dollars. You can spend a dollar a day. Okay. So It can be thirty dollars but I spending ten dollars a day on it, and we only boosted to our middle of the funnel pages. So people that are perhaps visiting our case study pages or people that are visiting our services pages or have filled out a consultation for trailing for something, we're trying to get the more doctrinaire in our world. So let's say they don't end up converting but then for the next three days are getting all this content around marketing score leveling up. And for that money spent that actually does drive more leads and we've seen an uptick in Leeds as so oftentimes, you'll hear from people. Oh, I see videos everywhere or I listen to your podcast all the time. Right. You're trying to drive that type of we talk about being everywhere we talk about being on channel. This is an easy way to do it, and so I like boosting in that respect. Now for talking about conversion related things, you'd probably have to go down her. Dude I have barely ever seen conversions from boosting no matter what industry the point Neal's making to, as you should be aiming for reach and you want people to watch your stuff and

"But they think their last name is Howard and they have no idea who their father really is. So the first conversation Z. has to have with her kids is Hey, sorry your name isn't Howard Your father isn't Thomas Howard. He's really Jesse James and here's who and what Jesse James. was. So that's the first conversation she has to have for their children, and then this is the part of this. Maybe factors into Jesse's mindset is that he basically left them destitute. He had no money at the end of his life whenever he had money, he spent it and so the the idea that. Maybe he was ready to go by the end of his life. This could be an element that pushes back on that idea because he certainly didn't have this life insurance policy or something like that that he could have left to his kids. He didn't have a nest egg. You didn't have thousands of dollars stuck under the mattress or anything like that. So if He decided at the end of his story that it's just his time to go. He left his family with nothing. So Z. was forced to sell all their possessions to make money. So they begin a life of struggle after that because he leaves him with nothing and of course, she's now the famous widow of Jesse James and her kids grow up to live. Somewhat difficult lives early on although this, if you fast forward the story toward the end, Jesse James Son ends playing his father Jesse James in the first movie about Jesse, James. That that comes out when when the film industry starts in. Early Twenties Jesse James With Jason. James, junior basically is what we call him. He ends up playing Jesse James Senior in the first film depiction of his father. So ends up working in Hollywood to some degree to a little bit. At the end of his life. So that's what I can tell you about what happened in the immediate aftermath and then fast forwarding a little bit. You actually answered the the two primary questions that I had about that which. I do remember the narrator at the very beginning of the movie mentions that his kids didn't even know his name. I think that was the only mentioned there, and so there was that aspect of it but then also yeah, some of that why mindset if Jesse James Really did know that there were going to assassinate him and let it happen while in my mind just from watching the movie. The sense that I got was even you know even though he was a vicious outlaw, he loved his wife and kids, and so he would have set them up with something like he would have had some sort of a nest egg or something if he had known that this was going to happen it would. I know it just makes sense to me that a husband and father would make sure that his family is taken care of if he knows that this is going to happen. Yeah. I want to believe that as well. Exactly. I feel the same way it sounds like he was a doting father he'd been in love with Z. Forever they they met when they were kids and they were technically or legally cousins I, guess I should say. She was the daughter of Jesse's step uncle I believe. So her disease father was the brother of Jesse's mother's third husband..

"Of course, we see that Robert Ford is killed by someone named Edward Kelly. Do we know if the Ford brothers regretted done and is the movie showing the end of the story correctly? Yeah mostly I don't know if we can speak truly to the mindset of either bobber Charlie but I. Think what ended up happening to them can probably give us some insight into the way they were thinking even even in Bob Special case, which is very odd I referenced earlier the Bob Never. Really committed a crime with the gang. But. It's possible that if he did shoot would height in his sister's home there in Martha Bolton's home that could have been the first crime he committed, and then his second might have been shooting Jesse James. So of those were his only two real crimes committed in life, they're pretty big ones. and. So it's possible that Charlie, Bob did grow to regret his actions and he had a difficult life. Afterwards, his actions followed him throughout and he might have. Thought somewhat like John Wilkes booth. After he assassinated president, Lincoln that he would be hailed as this hero for bringing down this wanted criminal but tables quickly turned on him and he was haunted by. And dogged by the reality of having killed Jesse James for the rest of his life if followed him everywhere he went. And before we get to the end of his story, Charlie probably did express more regret. He does have a little more of a tragic end where like you see in the film, he does sink into a very dark place. He became addicted to morphine and eventually came down with tuberculosis and then in eighteen eighty four, just two years after almost exactly two years after the death of Jesse. James he shoots himself in the chest. That part is accurate. Charlie did sink into this Dr depressed place and killed himself. And then Bob goes onto a series of different cities after their stage, their stage play wraps up and he does eventually end up in creed. Colorado. And a man named. Edward. Kelley or sometimes Edward Kelley in depending on the source, they'll put an oh in there..

"All of that information finds its way into the newspapers, and so now there's a ton of heat on Franken Jesse which ends up somewhat pushing them to get out of Missouri and right up to Minnesota and rob a bank where they've never been before. So they both escaping the heat of Missouri and drawing attention away from Missouri by robbing a bank in. Minnesota and of course just goes I, said spectacularly wrong. But that's part of the reason why why is first half second-half thing so this first guy in the first gang betrays the gang and he's the first one. But then in the second gang, it starts happening fairly regularly. So after the Glendale Robbery, one of the gang members gets caught, he talks to the police after another small robbery. A part of down in Alabama Agai in that robbery gets caught and he's going to testify against the first guy. So Jesse's gang members are starting to fall like crazy and this again, we're gonNA talk about in a little bit too keeps fueling his paranoia. So the idea of being betrayed comes much more in second half but not in the first half of the career, the way you explain that really helps me put together this bigger picture of why Jesse James was getting more and more paranoid as the years went on if he more and more members of his gang are essentially. Turning on him. Well, that would lead to paranoia all certainly elaborate on a little bit. I think the next thing we are thinking about talking about I think I can go a little further with it and you can really see the path of Jesse's paranoia. Yeah. Yeah. Well, going back to the movie we see, Charlie? Ford. Managed to convince Jesse James To let his brother Robert Join. Up with them again, and so we see there's essentially three of them. Now Jesse Charlie and Robert and they're living alongside Jesse's wife Zee and their two kids, and this was interesting because Jesse's wife and kids almost seem to show up out of nowhere. They're not really mentioned at the beginning of the movie that March.

"And disappears nobody sees him again, he stays on the run for twenty five years and so after he's gone for a little while Franken Jesse start to settle down. Okay. I guess he's not going to the police. But. That's the kind of weird. Situation Between Ed Miller Jim Commons and Jesse. So you do see Jesse trying to find Jim Cummins in the movie and being paranoid that Jim is gone but it's not really connected the way it appears to be in the movie Jim is not working with the police are hasn't gone to the cops but Jesse scared that he might okay it sounds like in movie impossibly the the book that it's based on the changing the time on a little bit to add things in common with the train robbery where they add elements of the first robbery in with the last one to mix together a little bit of creative license there to to do that it sounds like They're adding in some of the paranoia from previous into this time line in order to give a little bit of what it might have been like, with Jesse James. Prior, to the actual timeline of the film itself. Yeah, they're just heightening the paranoia. It's know Jesse probably fell all of this paranoia. It was just spread out over much longer timeline. So for the film, they're putting all of these events together and crunching the timeline so that it heightens Jesse's paranoia and just adds to the drama. Yeah. That makes sense speaking of the movie there is another rift that we see between two other gang members or former gang members. It'd be Dick Little and would height and as the movie explains it, the two were visiting woods father in his house Major George Height and Dick has an affair with Georgia's wife Sarah. So later and presumably after would finds out about the affair. We never really I don't think they have actually point that out specifically but it's very heavily implied that he must have found out about it. So he comes chasing after Dick Little and nearly kills him. He is shot by Robert Ford who also happens to be in the room when would came charging and shooting. This feud between Dick Little and would height really happen and end the way the movie shows by Robert Ford killing his former colleague in the James Gang. Yes. Few did happen the end of it does happen very similar to what you see in the movie. The couple changes are that Dick Little and would height were feuding but they were feuding over the sister of Charleen Robert. Ford. Soon, as you see in the movie Bob and Charlie and Dick Little in various other characters, ucs central house where they're all some of them. Are Living or at the very least they stop by Jesse, stops by every now and then so that home in real life is the home of Martha Bolton who is the sister of Bob and Charlie Ford she kind of runs this boardinghouse for these guys and any strangers who happen to stop by her house is basically the headquarters that's where everybody gathers and plans things and hangs out and they constantly rendezvous with her house. So would height and Dick little or both sweet on Bob Charlie sister, and that's why they're feuding..

"That point? I think it was pretty similar to what you see in the movie that it was at that point, it was almost certainly strained. The I guess it's the original second gang, the Jesse form. So after the after the northfield robbery, Jesse frankly low and recover for awhile, and then Jesse is the one who builds up the second gang and after a robbery or two with the second gang, things have started to go wrong. Some of those gang members have fallen away and we're GonNa talk about some of those as we go through but the course of that time period as Jesse is Back, robbing things and frank is not a part of it. Frank doesn't like the decisions Jesse's making he doesn't like the guys Jesse's involved with. So there's a and Jesse's becoming more paranoid as this whole process unfolds and so Jesse and frank's relationship is definitely strained by the time the blue cut robbery happens, and because of Jesse's actions frank has been forced to move out of the life he's been building for himself in Tennessee that's mostly where they spent their time after the Northfield raid and so frank is forced to move back to Kansas City back to their home territory where they can. Be Safe kind of sequestered in the area where they know and they have friends and family people who are going to protect them, and so Franks life of going straight has been up rooted by Jesse. So they're definitely strained and the blue cut robbery just basically being the breaking point and at that point frank moves away and to my knowledge, they never speak again I'm not aware of an instance is certainly would have been writing letters back and forth and I don't think that happens to my knowledge. They never speak again it's possible that did frank did go to Baltimore one brief. Little episode you read about in the lives and careers of Franken Jesse is that they both lived in Baltimore very very briefly, and so it's possible that frank did go back to Baltimore. But the trajectory that I know of is after the blue cut robbery, he went to Tennessee and the North Carolina and then ultimately settled in Virginia. So there could have been a stop in Baltimore in there somewhere. Okay. You mentioned the paranoia and we start to see some of this happened in the movie after the gang breaks up when Jesse finds out about a plan by former gang member Jim Cummins. Basically the way the movie describes this is his plan is to capture and turn Jesse James in for the governor's reward and according to the movie. Jesse finds out about it from another former gang member named. And then Jesse ends up killing. Ed. was there really this plan for some of his former gang to turn him in for the reward? Somewhat though not these two guys, it's kind of factors into the very end of the story with Charlie and Robert Ford. But there is some drama between this trio of at Miller in Jim Collins and Jesse though all of that action happens before this movie actually starts..

"Now, what they didn't know was that there was another safe with more money in in that train car, but it was hidden under chicken coops. By this point so many trains have been robbed and certainly by the James Gang that the railroads were starting to come up with clever ways to hide the money they still had to transport by train, but now they were starting to hide it in different places so. This is also the second time this had happened to the James Gang and their in their very first train robbery. They think there's this huge shipment of money and in reality they're kind of is, but only some of it is in real currency the rest of it is in raw or that's going to be refined into gold coins and they can't take this shipment of raw or exits massive in it's way too heavy. So is it the second time where they thought there's going to be a lot of money on there and it turns out not to be the case. The other last thing to mention in there is something that I really loved you talk about the cinematography I love the way the film is shot that opening sequence is fantastic. The other thing that's slightly different in this version is that they? Most of the guys didn't wear those kind of white hoods that make you think of KKK members. Although that was a technique that was a strategy in the very first robbery. Again, both robberies, the very first robbery. The very last are somewhat tied together in the film. In the first robbery the James Gang did wear these white hoods white masks to try to trick investigators the thinking that the gang was part of the KKK. So they were throwing the investigators off their trail by faking membership in the KKK. tied. Come back around in the film version of this robbery, they probably did wear masks in real life but they're probably closer to what Jesse and frank wearing bandannas pulled up over their noses and mouths in the classic Old West. Fashion. I, like you mentioned how they tied the first and last together in the film because I would not put those together at all. Yeah. They don't reference that first robbery will get like you said they very rarely reference anything else that happens in the past just get little nuggets through mostly the voice over but these little things they they to tied together the real history of the story. Laughter that robbery the blue cut robbery Frank James says something to the effect of how they're giving up night riding for good and was watching the movie. It made me think that one of the reasons why blue cut was their final robbery was because the take from the train just wasn't what they expected it to be but then the movie also mentions that's the original members of the gang either in prison or dead except for Franken. Jesse. Of course. So maybe the two brothers had already decided that their time was nearing an an and they knew that they were done did the James Brothers decide to hang up their outlawing ways after the blue cut train robbery like the movie shows To some degree. Yeah..

"Your favorite Hollywood movies with history. Today we're going to about the two thousand, seven film directed by Andrew Dominik called the assassination of Jesse. James by the coward Robert Ford. That is, of course, the story of the assassination of Jesse James who is played by Brad Pitt by Robert Fort who has played by Casey Affleck and also stars Sam Rockwell, mary-louise, Parker, Jeremy, Renner, and Sam Sheppard just to name a few. To help us separate fact from fiction in the movie I'm excited to once again chat with Chris Wimmer you might remember Chris when he came on based on a true story for episode Number One, hundred, forty, two to talk about the movie tombstone or episode number. One hundred forty six, where he helped us learn more about billy the kid and the movie young guns. Chris is the host and producer of two excellent podcasts that focus on American history called legends of the old. West, and infamous America. Before. We connect with Chris though. Let's set up our game to truths and a lie. If you knew the show, here's how it works I'm about to say three things. Two of them are true and that means one of them is ally. Are you ready? Okay, here they are. Number One. The James Gang stopped their out long ways because Jesse his brother Frank after the blue cut train robbery. Number two after assassinating Jesse James Charlie and Robert Ford reenacted the event on stage around the country. Number Three Jesse and Zee James Children didn't know their father was Jesse James until after he was killed. Got Him. Okay. Now, as you're listening to our story today, your challenge is to find the two facts scattered throughout the episode and by a simple process of elimination, you'll be able to find out which one is the lie, and of course, we'll do a recap at the end of the episode to see how will you did. All right now, it's time to chat with Chris? Wimmer about the historical accuracy of the assassination of Jesse James by the coward Robert Ford..

An deep dive into Trump’s 2020 State of the Union speech

"I'm Audie Cornish in Washington earlier we heard from president Donald Trump and we just heard the voice of Michigan governor Gretchen Wimmer who presented the democratic response to president trump stated the union speech we have several folks here tonight to do some analysis about all that we heard we're gonna start within the within eighteen L. Shammi who was the chief of staff to speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi and Brendan Buck who was a spokesman for the former house speaker Paul Ryan bring you guys both in for your expertise how what we heard tonight now if you're on Twitter there were a lot of conservatives you you're you're using a lot of exclamation points and saying this is the best thing that they've ever heard Democrats not saying the same I want to start with you Brendan what did you make of the president's focus tonight how we deliver that yeah and this is certainly a confident president in a way that you know you might expect a president who's at his all time high in in the latest Gallup poll who is just really defeated impeachment and have the Democrats sort of in disarray he started off with all of those economic status just making the case that things are going well in this country talk about how we're we're not gonna turn back and really was just riding high right some of his quotes it insane three years of my administration three and a half million working age people of join the work force in leaning really hard into that at the top in it and it was a lot of job well done on my part and very little agenda going forward I counted this is not an official count but I counted only ten things in which he is calling on Congress to do anything in a lot of those were relatively small ball usually a president comes in with a big agenda here's all the things I want to do and you really have to dig in there to find them some of it is funding neo natal research funding a child tax credit sanctuary cities sending Americans to Mars things like that that don't really come together in a real way but another take way as as sue was talking about from the room if I've seen a lot of state of the union this was as divided and cold as I've ever seen you could almost hear brewing from some of the Democrats and that is just really stark and the Nancy Pelosi interactions yeah she she tried to shake his hand and he did do it she actually tore up his speech at the end that that's remarkable I've never seen anything like that the team let's have you jump in on your former boss there people were watching her and her behavior very closely but first your reaction to some of the things you heard tonight shoring it was a fascinating speech the king can I give you a look into president trump's mine and that we were hoping that he would meet the commander in chief test but then said that I believe he produced a speech that was made for TV made for TV moments and Brandon is exactly right some of the big issues bi partisan issues that he could work with Democrats on infrastructure he had two lines and infrastructure of prescription drugs he really did not go into specifics as to get me a bell and I will sign it these are opportunities lost a lucky get a showing at age she has to do is to tell Democrats thank you for working with me on U. S. M. C. A. and he didn't right you mentioned that it was signed by it was that yeah and and I and also in terms of I've I've seen many states to the union I've been there and I think this is stands up to when president Obama was to during the ACA negotiations and trying to get the bill passed it was it was that same feeling that you had in those to complete the process I want to take a moment now to fact check some of what we heard both the president's speech in the democratic response NPR's Scott Horsley is here to help us do that welcome Scott they do with it this speech was kind of the theme of it was the great American come back the president spent considerable time talking about the economy both his and the prior administration's but here's a sample of that in just three short years we have shattered the mentality of American decline and we have rejected the downsizing of Americans destiny we have totally rejected the downsizing we're moving forward at a pace that was unimaginable just a short time ago and we are never ever going back Scott who was Anderson economy were looking at the one the president's describing characteristically here Donald Trump exaggerates how strong the economy is now and how weak it was when he came into office the fact is the economy was pretty good in twenty seventeen and it's still pretty good now the economy last year grew two point three percent that is exactly the average for the last decade the U. S. added six point seven million jobs in the first thirty five months after trump took office pretty impressive but not unprecedented in the previous thirty five months the U. S. added nearly eight million jobs so really less of a comeback than a more less straight line continuation a lot of people also measure the economy by the size of their own paychecks right in this president described this as a blue collar boom after decades of flat and falling incomes wages are rising fast and wonderfully they are rising fastest for low income workers who have seen a sixteen percent pay increase since my election Scott Horsley is our chief economics correspondent and of course was a long time White House correspondents so to help us understand how he's trying to frame these specific numbers wage wages have been rising faster than inflation that's good for workers there read real purchasing power's been going up but wage gains of actually moderated in recent months in the twelve months ending in December average wages rose just two point nine percent compared to three point four percent earlier in the year and that deceleration in pay hikes is a little surprising given the very low unemployment rate we have now is encouraging as the president says that wages for people at the bottom of the income ladder have been rising faster than those the top that's partly because a lot of states have raised their minimum wages the present also talked about the very large stock market gains that we've seen since the election of twenty sixteen it is way up not seventy percent as he said but the Dow's up fifty seven percent stock ownership are is heavily concentrated among the rich eighty four percent of those gains have gone to just the top ten percent of earners and forty five percent of Americans don't own any stock at all I want to pause for a second and go to Ron Elving because when you think about the last impeach president he was giving a seat at the union is also the person we attribute this it's the economy stupid kind of sloganeering and so is this something that the president should lean hard into especially given what his democratic rivals are talking about why would he not why would he not take credit for where the car a condom use today presidents have suffered when the economy was poor even if it wasn't their fault and even when it wasn't really that bad and even when it was recovering I'm thinking here by George HW bush in nineteen ninety two very short very shallow recession and yet he was pummeled with it and that has happened in other occasions and we've also seen presidents come and office riding on a long recovery such as the one from say about two thousand nine two thousand ten forward into two thousand seventeen and tack on a few more years with policies and there's no question that this president has cut regulations and cut taxes what particularly for a corporations and to some to be wealthy individuals which has juice the economy if you're further but he did come in riding on a long recovery which may be slowing down a little bit now but he basically takes credit for all of it and says that when he came into office it was a situation of American carnage I want to come back to Scott Horsley here because another issue one of factcheck health care promises the president spoke about also Michigan governor Gretchen Widmer who delivered the democratic response here's an example of something the president spoke about one hundred and thirty two lawmakers in this room have endorsed legislation to impose a socialist takeover of our healthcare system wiping out the private health insurance plans of one hundred and eighty million very happy Americans to those watching at home tonight I want you to know we will never let socialism destroy American health care members we talk about the language is using their this is obviously divisive issue even within the Democratic Party some of the presidential candidates on the democratic side Bernie Sanders Elizabeth Warren have favored a single payer plan that would eliminate private insurance in warrants case over a period of time other Democrats though want to preserve a role for private insurance for those people who want it we should also point out the president did make what he called an iron clad pledged to protect patients with pre existing condition did he explain how we do that he he did not in this this is surely the biggest Whopper in tonight's speech the president knows a protection for patients with pre existing conditions as popular so he pays lip service to it but if anything his administration has has whittled away at those protections and of course they're they're fighting to overturn the affordable Care Act which is where those protections come from I want to talk about another big issue border security the president talked about this one even before he you know what it was the nominee and hit that thing again tonight my administration has undertaken an unprecedented effort to secure the southern border of the United States this statement seems vague but it's got I believe you've kind of dug into it what do you know the administration has made a series of sweeping changes to limit access to asylum seekers at the border I'd sent tens of thousands of migrants back to Mexico to wait for their day in immigration courts and administration credits those policies for a very sharp drop in the number of migrants who are being taken into custody the border in a last may we saw that number peek at a recent high about a hundred forty thousand last month the number was down to around twenty nine thousand so a drop of about eighty percent our allies in this gets at some of what we would call kind of red meat or culture were issues that we heard the president talking about he said he was calling upon members of Congress to pass legislation banning late term abortion of babies he talked about the idea of a sanctuary cities and kind of going after sanctuary states how did he balance this part of the speech with what we heard about the economy well I think those are the two parts of the president's campaign message one is to say you're better off now than you were four years ago the economy is great he said it's greater than ever before in American history but also the president is at heart a culture warrior and he believes that cultural issues are more powerful than economic ones and there is some evidence that might suggest he's right for instance the parts of the country that are reaping the most benefits from the trump economy are the ones where his approval ratings are the worst and the parts of the country that are not reaping the benefits that are doing badly record farm bankruptcy is a manufacturing recession those are the parts of the country where his numbers are the highest why I think because of the cultural issues he's pretty face the voters in those places think he's protecting them against criminal immigrants he talked about those he highlighted once again this is a staple for him a family whose family member has been killed by an undocumented immigrant so these are the two parts of his message one is you never had it so good and the other is you know the Democrats want to ruin your your way of life and that's the message to the public we want to talk about what it was like inside the capitol congressional correspondent kills the smell is there tonight moments ago she spoke with the second highest ranking Republican representative in the house that Steve Scalise we did see a pretty tepid response from Democrats on most things including things other were bye bye things that should have been bipartisan that always have been bipartisan it almost is is like they have this personal hatred against the president and they're letting it see through where they're opposing good policies and you should always put your personal differences on the

From Coast to Coast: A Conversation with Eddie Donaldson

"Our podcast. Fast is generally categorized as a sustainability podcast but sustainability in a lot of its forms doesn't always have to meet environmental on today. I think we're going to talk a lot. More about sustainable communities in social impact messaging. But before we get into all of that I know you have a very cool story. Okay and I want you to walk me through how Kentucky Kid ended up in the California arts scene and not just ended up in the art scene but really at the heart of everything going on uncreative in California. Well when a you know born and raised in Louisville or at least mostly raised in Louisville my mother passed away when I was sixteen or fifteen years old so so Came to live in Los Angeles with her sister. My Aunt Doris Johnson. Who interesting enough kind of figure? In Louisville. She was a musician on on the scene on Washington Street. And all the cool like bars and sixties. I came to live with her. And after you know losing your mom barely having having relationship with your father and being dumped in a whole new city which is completely different than where you were you. Kind of options are limited to where he kinda migrate towards so you know fortunately and unfortunately depending on which lends you look at it through. I kind of found myself migrating grading towards gangs here in Los Angeles. Because that was you know it was it felt like a safe place for me and I was accepted for who I was and just kind of started hanging out in the wrong places. Let's say and then I was introduced to graffiti. You know and I was like. Hey this is a safer. Kind of environment with a similar her fraternal brotherhood. Feel a crew of guys that really care about each other look out for each other and will do anything for each other so you know. Even though it wasn't the greatest artist that's kind of where I ended up and then from there you know kind of you know naturally being a business minded person. I guess I've tried to figure out a way where since I was is it the greatest graffiti artists in the world. How can actually turn this into a business? How can I monetize these kids skills? And how can we make a business out of this. I guess you could say you caught foresight to a certain extent you know none of us knew what we were doing. As far as business was concerned or or the detention by ability for business. But you know I just had had the vision that one day this would be accepted art form and that people would pay for it and that's kind of what got me in the business of art in so what's now bringing you back back to your roots back to Louisville. Well it's an interesting. That's an interesting conversation as well. I mean you know given the fact that I lost my mom early it was Kinda four letter word for me. I loved the basketball aspect of my hometown. Whether it be local or you have L. or K.. Not Always Watch the Games and stay connected. You know through Athletics but you know it's just kind of a a negative feeling when I thought about home based on my loss and a friend of mind Danny Wimmer who does music festivals back in local. He does hometown rising Bourbon and beyond and louder than life started these festivals and we had some business together. And he's like you should come see what we're doing here. It's pretty cool so I I went home and you know I have to say I was completely shocked at how much change had happened in the city. How cool the scene? The Art scene was in the music scene and how much progressive it was considering. How how it was when and I left thirty years ago or whatever so you know? I reconnected with a lot of my high school friends and I and I really. I really kind of felt that special feeling and you know like how special it is to be in Louisville in how special the people are so I decided I wanted to try to figure out some ways that I could bring some of the stuff that I'm doing here. You're back home and not only expose people at home to how cool what. La and an international graffiti and street. Art Scene feels like but also get some of these skies from Paris or Australia or London to touch ground in Louisville and see how special the ground and the people are there. So that's really kind of the inspiration spradlin behind the wall sluggers project and talk a little bit more about that and what exactly you guys are doing with branded arts. Well you know it's natural for me due to try and bring something that's so accessible to me back home and something that we've been doing for over twenty years so I got together with some people here in La and we decided we wanted to put together a mural project not a mural festival because it's not going to happen happened in a short period of time. I'd like to have start during Derby create. Do our first activation in the end with a bang during the try festival varied in October with Daniel presents officially with them but during that time so that gives us a seven or eight month time period to execute as many beautification. You too fixation. Projects as we can whether it be for community or for commercial because we're having a lot of conversations in in different areas you know one of the things we're trying to do is as we would like to revitalize the area surrounding the Skate Park and we're talking to the city and I've got diamond supply company here in La that wants to help fund it will take some skaters back Jack and will do a huge day when we unveil the the mirrow but then also some of the stuff we're trying to do is we'd love to do some beautification at the healing place. which is the number one recovery center in local? We'll at least to my knowledge. They have three facilities. And we've talked about painting you know doing something at all three. And then we're also talking Johnson middle school about coming in and doing something something in their gymnasium and in the hallway that's motivational and inspirational to the kids on the ground. So I mean it's really it's it's really a pretty thick and robust program program an ambitious program but considering all the love for the arts and local getting everything funded should should be. I don't WanNa say easy but I'm confident that will find refunds. We need you have such a large network of artists and just like people around you and talent in friends in industry names as as we look back on the last decade while also like looking ahead to the next. I mean this is GonNa be hard. This is going to be like picking your favorite child but like who do you think were some of the most influential artists famous well known or not over the last ten years in the scene and also who do you think is really GonNa make an impact on the next ten. Wow how that's a tough question. You know one of the things that I always say when people ask me questions like this or Gimme the credit for being where I am in what I do is. I don't know anything else that no one else knows. Like I'm not the smartest guy in the world you know. I'm not Jeffrey Deitch. Or you know I just happened to have a lot of really cool friends. Does that make art. And I'm I'm just blessed to be in the right place at the right time but if I have to answer that question I would say shepherd. Ferry is probably to me one of the most influential fluential artists that I've ever worked with and of my time because of the reach that he isn't able to accomplish and a lot of the social chain he's been able to to to activate or or be a part of an and he keeps that as as a common denominator to most of the things that he does you know he has a ton of integrity. He understands the value of social economics and he understands the impact that his art has on people that see it so you know I'd give him the. Probably you know that credit to be one of the most influential influential artists of our time. As far as I'm concerned I mean obviously banks is is hugely famous and hugely popular. But I don't think banks he's making near the change range in the world that Shepherd Fair has been able to accomplish and I admire that and as far as the future goes the landscape is changing so much when I when I got into the art xenos like you had to pay dues. You had to you know you had to pay your time and you had to put your time in and you had to get the experience now with the age of the Internet and in how just media in general has changed who knows who the next new artist is going to be. I don't think it's going to be one. I think it's going to be thousands of new artists that have change your have the ability to to make change and and create impact. Because you know everyone has a voice now when it comes to art or creativity eighty or music based on their ability to publish almost immediately Anything they want so I don't think there's going to I think it's going to change landscape landscape to WHO's the guy who's the I think it's going to be the entire generation that actually is credited for for that space. You talked a lot. What about you know change in social good? I'm curious because obviously Rubicon Environmental Company. That's trying to make a change in you know we're trying going to do what we can. How do you think that environmental sustainability social messaging you all of that plays a role in our you? No I've done some research about Green Rafidi and I don't necessarily mean you know. Let's toxins in the paint can. But do you think that some of the messages that you've seen on some the murals and art are now kind of leaning more towards environmental messaging. What are some of those trends like? Well I mean yes. There's you know we understand standing power we have to to move the needle into communicate to the masses you know when it comes to street art and graffiti. I mean that's the core reason for doing doing so is messaging you know it started with like look at me and now look at these issues. or or let's beautify neighborhood there's a ton of people in the space that are now making different French choices to materials that they use and there's a ton of manufacturers in the business that are looking for new solutions just invited a guy yesterday named Dj that has a company called can love and their whole their whole idea. is they recycle cans and they make these beautiful hearts with the inside of the can facing out so you can see the different colors. They take the top the cans and they asked him to make him flowers. Yes really really cool and so everyone is a little bit more conscious as the world wakes up. You know people. We'll have to be responsible for what their footprint is. And what their messages in regards to that footprint so you know whether we find perfect solutions to to the environmental issues when it comes to materials or or application. It's really how we speak about it. And how and the message that we leave behind because at the end of the day. That's it's what art is. It's a form of messaging and communication hopefully to impact and create change or motivate people to activate. Something what you know whatever it is you know the message for our next show is called Love Los Angeles style. And you know it's all about love everything that we're doing in every bit out of messaging is about activating love so you know there's a huge social impact component to what we do and I think most of the people that You know are involved or or waking up and utilizing that tool for that for those

"The old west. Did you find out which one is a lie. What start with number one? That is true as Chris mentioned Murphy was not really the main driver behind the conflict. Like with billy the kid he also died after the time line of the movie and it wasn't by a gunshot to the head like we see in the movie that brings us to number to that is also true. Even though he was often called billy or the kid. Those three words together billy. The kid were first used in a newspaper and then subsequently used many times over as his reputation grew that means the lie is number three even though billy. The kid is one of the most well known characters from the Old West as Chris pointed out. We don't really know a lot about him and even the things that we do know we can't be one hundred percent certain about so he is definitely not one of the most well documented characters in the old west. I'd like to thank and Chris Wimmer for coming on the show. One more time I learned a ton and I hope that you did before we wrap up. This episode was one last thing I think would be nice to do. I've never heard a podcast share the stats for each episode. But I'm a big fan of being as open as possible so I figure why not. Maybe if you find out how much time and money goes into creating a podcast like mine. Maybe you'll start to appreciate all the podcasts that you listened to for free just a little bit more with that said here are the final stats for the creation of this episode. Today's episode took a total of twenty hours to create create and cost fifteen dollars. Ninety seven cents in out of pocket expenses as I always. Do I want to point out that time and cost is only my time for this one episode so basically that does not include the countless hours of my guests time researching the subject matter that we talked about nor does is it include my time. The ongoing costs are the ongoing time and costs for example the monthly podcast and website hosting costs. Those are monthly charges. That the they cost money. But it's not really just for this one episode. It's a monthly recurring. Cost it. Also it does not account for any of the time outside the writing researching and producing this one episode. So for example there I mean based based on a true story PODCAST DOT COM is the website. So there's the website hosting costs and the domain name costs there it doesn't include does it also does not include at the time it takes to maintain the website so if there are updates that need to happen wordpress or updates for plug ins or if something breaks or if there's The things that were Require time to maintain that particular website. It does not include any of that time because that's not really writing writing researching and producing this one single episode. Don't forget you can help. Keep based on a true story ad free and independent by supporting the podcast over at at based on a true story. PODCAST DOT com slash support. And as a way of saying thank you..

"He had a lot of rackets and he was very corrupt and John. tunstall comes to town and this is where there's a big departure in accuracy receive in the film in the Jack Palace who played. LG Murphy in the film is roughly the same age. That Murphy would have been at the time Murphy was in his mid fifties sees Jack Palance. I believe with sixty eight at the time. The movie was made or at least at the time it was released but then you look over to John. Tunstall played by Terence stamp and he I believe was around Terence stamp was around fifty or in his mid fifties when he was playing John. Tunstall in reality tunstall was a very young man. Am He was twenty three when he came to Lincoln and he was twenty four through the events so he was half the age of the real LG Murphy And so you had this. And he was English and Murphy was Irish and all of Murphy's Intergroup his core supporters. Were all Irish. They were all served in the army together they were very close and they basically ran Lincoln County through their corrupt network that was typically called the Murphy Faction and sometimes the Murphy Dolan Lynn Faction and nicknamed the House and their little faction was part of what you hear in the film called the Santa Fe ring which was a big political machine. Maybe akin to Tammany Hall in New York. It was a group of politicians and legislators judicial officials who were all working in and league together to benefit themselves so they ran everything so murphy ran everything and here comes this young Englishman town. Who wants to do exactly that? John Tunstall's goal role was to unseat. LG Murphy and take over Lincoln County. He was just as greedy as LG Murphy. He just wasn't as evil and ruthless about it like algae Murphy was so murphy very much viewed tunstall as a threat and then his protege Jimmy Dolan. Lynn started Nizing ways to take down tunstall and push him out of Lincoln or then eventually just kill him so yes there was absolutely a feud that eventually turned violent. That sounds like from what you're saying it was it was going both ways whereas the movie really Kinda depicts it going in one way from Murphy to tunstall and but it sounds like tunstall was as much an aggressor as Murphy. To An extent from what I've read tunstall had no fear a no problem using violence. He just actually never did ki hired gunmen he stocked his ranch. Billy Bonnie Dick Brewer. The men that he hired hired some of them were actual good cowboys. Dick Brewer seems to be the classic example of an old school cowboy. No he was he was tough. He was strong he he was a cowboy. He knew cattle he knew horses Hindu ranch work but some of the other guys that tunstall hired were basically just gunman they were there in in case violence was needed and they would do some work around the ranch. So tunnel had no problem using violence but at the same time he consistently pulled back back from using it there were times where he could have just unleashed his forces and he chose not to so he was kind of somewhere in the middle. It seemed like he didn't have a problem within within the he wrote letters back home to his family continuously saying look. It's it looks like it's getting bad here. Things are going to get bad but I think I've made my preparations but yet at the last second second would always say now. I don't WanNA fight. Don't this is not the right way to go whereas Murphy and Dolan Jimmy Dolan was LG. Murphy's proteges I think I may have mentioned. They ultimately had no problem using violence. It's maybe like a one and a half way street. Talk tunstall never. Actually they took any aggressive action but it really seemed like he could have and you mentioned writing home to his family. I don't remember a mention of tunstall having a family somewhere else in the country country. No I guess what I mean by family. His parents okay. So he's herons are in London his his father's fairly well off and bit. His father is who basically state tim to try to make his fortune. In America tunstall was it was a dreamer and adventurer. He came to America. He wanted to buy land and and build a fortune of his own but he was gonNA use his father's money to get him started so he's continuously writing letters home to his mother and father. I think he might have had a sibling. But now my memories failing me on that but yeah when I say family I just mean his immediate family back home in London. Okay okay I appreciate clarifying because at my I was thinking you know wife and children or something like that. Yeah no going back to the movie. It's after tunstall is killed that we start to see billy the a kid start his outlawing way as he starts to seek vengeance for TUNSTALL's death although it's interesting that he doesn't actually start as an outlaw on actually it's quite the opposite. According to the movie the gang is deputized and given warrants to track down some of the men responsible for tunstall's death and that's kind of the point of the movie and a lot of the plot points that we see is kind of how the gang tracks them down and then they end up going a little bit beyond capturing them and just kill them but is that how billy the kid and his gang began down this path towards becoming outlaws somewhat. Yes like a lot of the questions. It's GonNa be kind of a two part question. So billy was an outlaw. Already when he became a regulator when he got involved in the events of the Lincoln County War I won't get into his whole history he is one of the most fascinating characters in American History Bec- pardon partially maybe mostly because his life is really a mystery history. That's one of the first things you learn. When you start looking at billy? The kid there were very few things about billy. The kid's life that can be verified one hundred percent. Even the events is that I'm talking about here. They're verified to the best of our ability and the film you know it's it's very difficult to verify anything. So his early years he he flees his groups. He spent his formative years down in the other corner of New Mexico in Silver City. And then he gets a little trouble with the law and he flees to you Arizona in Arizona. He ends up killing a man the in an event that could be judged as self-defense. So then he comes back to New Mexico and that's when he gets involved in the Lincoln County War events and when he comes back. He rides with an outlaw gang for a while so he really is kind of a very very young. I would say almost pseudo outlaw. He has committed some crimes he'd killed a man for sure but it wasn't really like a cold blooded thrill killing thing but he comes back to New Mexico outlaw so he's on the fringe of outlawry. I guess we could say even though he technically has this murder worn out for him when he becomes becomes a member of the regulators and then yeah the regulators themselves are deputized they are they are constables. They are deputized to go serve. I believe eighteen warrants against the posse that is charged with having killed John Tunstall and I don't think they bring any of them in the they do they do find some of the men on their list they wanNA bring in and they ended up killing all of them so it really was just going out for revenge revenge and not really trying to serve those warrants. Yeah but it's also you do see a little bit of that in the second murder slash rush capture attempt. I guess in the film when the regulators fined two guys named Morton and Baker and those guys are very small parts in the movie but they're are actually very big parts of the real life events And actually it's kind of odd. I still don't I you know I. Unfortunately I should have done more reading about the film. I don't fully know. Oh where the first escapade with Henry Hill comes in when the regulators find this guy in this terrible ugly little shack near a river. I don't really understand where that comes from. I've got some theories on it but there was no prominent person named Henry Hill who the regulators players were trying to track down so it could be an entire invention of the filmmakers or it could have some very loose truth to but when the regulators find Morton and Baker those those are the first guys that the real regulators tracked down and they did capture them They were trying to take them back to Lincoln. But those two men in dubbed dying along with mccloskey just like more or less like you see in the movie. Those three men do end up dead in the same event and the common wisdom is that billy was one of the primary instigators in killing those three men but Dick Brewer played by Charlie. Sheen did not want that to happen. So so while the regulators constantly ended up killing them and they were trying to capture dig. Brewer seems like he really did WANNA bring them in. He was the one who who took his job as a deputy as constable seriously. But it also didn't stop him from really preventing all these killings and movie seems to Portray Trey that pretty well then it sounds like it's at least as far as some of the dynamic between the gang themselves for the very little space. They had to to tackle all these events. Yeah Dick Brewer seemed to be the kind of stalwart honorable man. Who didn't want to kill all these people? Billy was a little more aggressive but you. You know it's always hard to tell because like I said the only people who were actually there at the time didn't really give us any information about those times. Yo You mentioned into Henry Hill and that brings me to my next question because that was something that we do see in the movie but then after that gunfight with Henry Hill in the movie we see doc reading being an account from a newspaper and in that account it mentions I think there were nine. Men left dead from the gunfight and then a local minor diner identified the leader of the deputies gang as a kid and the key plot points that kind of took away from this. As they're reading. The newspaper is well one one I guess. Is that The newspaper is feeding a lot of that information. But then also that that's where the nickname billy the kid comes from and then and I guess a third one would be that billy. The kid was the leader of the gang because the newspaper article mentions that was the movie right by implying. That newspapers are kind of where we get a lot of that that information from and they gave him the nickname. Billy the kid. Yes in very strict terms. Yes a newspaper. The Las Vegas Gazette newspaper Las Las Vegas New Mexico had a newspaper called the Las Vegas Gazette. The publisher a man named J H. Kugler is the first person to write the word..

"About the movie young guns and to help us separate fact from fiction in the film. I'm excited to once again be joined by Chris Wimmer his name sounds familiar earlier. You might remember when we had Chris on the podcast last October to chat about the true story behind the movie tombstone and for that episode. I mentioned that Chris is the host and producer of legends of the Old West. A podcast dedicated to well the legends of the Old West. But Chris also has another podcast called infamous America. And that's the hat Chris's wearing today's. He joins us to chat about the subject of the most. Recent recent season of infamous America Billy. The kid in fact that season is just about to reach its epic conclusion. So as soon as you're done listening to this make sure to go. Listen to season three of infamous America. So you'll be caught up for the final few episodes in the story of billy the kid but before we you get Chris on the line. Let's set up our game two truths and a lie now. If you're a long-time listener you already know how this works but if you knew the show welcome here is how. Wow this little game works. I'm about to say three things. Two of them are true and that means one of them is a lie. Are you ready. Okay here. They are number one. The Lincoln County War did not end when billy the kid shot L G Murphy like we see the movie number two billy. The kid's nickname first appeared in a newspaper number three. Billy the kid is one of the most I will documented characters in the old west. Got Them Okay. Now as you're listening to our story today your challenge is to find the to fax wchs scattered throughout the episode and then by a simple process of elimination. You'll be able to find out which one is the lie. And of course we'll do a recap at the end of the episode to see how well you did all right now. It's time to get Chris on the line to chat about the historical accuracy of the movie. Young guns I'd like to start by establishing the setting because I didn't really think that the movie did a very good job job of doing that. We don't really see a mention of a date or location. Although there is a mention of President Rutherford B Hayes in mentioned of a town called. Lincoln doesn't really say where maybe Lincoln Nebraska on an old movie doesn't really say that's the first Lincoln that comes to my mind though and we know that from history President Hayes. Hayes was in office from eighteen seventy seven to eighteen eighty one so that gives us a little bit of help with the date range if you happen to know that history but the movie is pretty pretty vague with the overall setting. So can you give us a bit of historical background about when and where billy the kid's story took place yeah. Those date ranges are good and are accurate. So it's one of you mentioned Lincoln Nebraska because I grew up in des Moines Iowa so Lincoln Nebraska would have been the first Lincoln. I would have thought of as well having actually you've been there And spend a lot of time in Omaha as well But yet so the story of the film takes place in Lincoln County New Mexico which is for anyone who's been been in Mexico. It's the southeastern quadrant of the of the what was then a territory. What is now a state? It's a huge sprawling area especially really at the time. It was about the size in terms of total land of the State of South Carolina. It was a massive place so there was a lot of land very a few people even less law and yes it did. The events of the film take place between that while they're all about eighteen seventy eight to eighteen seventy nine but as you mentioned. They don't really say that in the film but the presidency of Hayes really covers the time span of the events that are commonly called the Lincoln County War and eighteen seventy seven to eighteen. Eighty one is really the peak years of billy. The kid as the outlaw in mythological character that we know formats okay so the movie does get at least that part of it right setting up that time and place at least yeah. It's in that range without a doubt And then yes. They don't don't really specify I guess I don't even know I just wide. We watched the movie but I was not I guess. I didn't really pay attention to if they even say the words New Mexico in the film. Now oh I'm not one hundred percent sure that's interesting. I was listening for that. And I don't ever remember if you're listening to this and and you notice a spot where they mentioned that by all means let me know but I. I didn't notice that I only heard them mention Lincoln. Yeah and it's it gets slightly more complicated because Lincoln is a town and county so the county seat feet of Lincoln is the town of Lincoln. So you know the the town that you see in the film is as I believe. That's actually the old Tucson movie said in Arizona Arizona's but it's you know the the events are centered around the town of Lincoln in the county of Lincoln. You know clear as mud right. Yeah exactly of course okay. What kind of have a better idea of the the win wear? I'm curious about the WHO in the movie alongside William Bonney or billy. The kid there are names like like. Docs KEROUAC Kiefer Sutherland. Character Jose Chavez each Haba's Lou Diamond Phillips Character Dick Brewer. Who's played by Charlie Sheen? Dirty Steve Steve Stevens and Charlie Baudry. How accurate was the movie depicting the gang that we see around billy the kid okay? This is is an interesting question and it's an again like we did with the tombstone. I'll try to keep the answer's simple even though it's actually a fairly sizable question. The writer of the film has pared down the gang that was known as the regulators to basically these five or six guys. It was a much larger gang than that. It was ten eleven twelve in the early early stages it blossomed into nineteen to twenty later and they would add recruits when we got really into the depth of the Lincoln County war so they were like sixty guys apart. It was a much larger force at various points in time but the menu just mentioned are all real people. Docs Girl Shabas Dick Brewer. Dirty Steve Stevens and Charlie Baudry are all real people and they were all connected they were all regulators and they were all connected to billy the kid and all connected through John Tunstall. They all worked for John Tunstall in various ways. So just like you see in the movie. Dick Brewer was the foreman for John. Anton Stolz operation and was therefore then the first captain of the regulators. DOCS KEROUAC ended up. Also being a captain of the regulators and his character is a little bit different than the character portrayed by Kiefer Sutherland but has some similarities. CHAGAS is another regulator. who was ah feel like? He's a lesser part of it. He moves into the gang for one really big section of the overall historical events but then really isn't as much of a part of the ongoing war as some of the other guys Dirty Steve Stevens is is somewhat interesting. Interesting you know from what I've read. He is kind of a mystery. He's always referred to as dirty Steve Stevens that Israel. It's not a movie concoction. He was called dirty. Steve Steve Stevens. But I really don't know that much about it. There's not a whole lot of information about that guy in real life And then Charlie Baudry is one of the early regulators who was actually partners with? Docs KEROUAC in a farming operation. In real life they were neighbors with Dick Brewer. And so that's how they got involved in everything. They were neighbors and friends with Dick Brewer. They then joined the regulators with him or participated in a lot of things. And then Charlie baudry stayed aide Billy pretty much until the end of their lives. I can only imagine what it must be like the living in a time where. I'm sure they maybe took Baz once once every week to be called dirty Steve to get that name. Yeah I yes bathing. Once a week would have been hygienic. You would have been considered sitter clean at that voice. I have no idea so they've they might have with all the makeup and the tobacco chewing of Dermal Rone's character of dirty Steve. That might not have been too far from the truth. It's it's hard to tell but As grows as it might look on film. That might have been pretty close. Just glad you can't smell movies. Have invented vented technology. Oh Man I could only imagine. And that's what I think about all the time not to get too deep into the weeds. But when you watch movies like this or when you watch The the TV show deadwood. Can you just imagine sitting in a saloon with men who were always been on the trail for weeks driving cattle and they bathed when they reach a river. And that's about it on the coming out of the mines in busted. The smell must have been overwhelming. It must have been crazy. Yeah let's let's move on. I don't really I want to think too much about. Yeah we don't we don't want to lose all your listeners. With I what you mentioned the Lincoln War and we start to see this as the movie sets it up. There's kind of a few that starts to brew between two cattleman there in Lincoln one of them as LG Murphy and the other one is someone that you mentioned John Tunstall and why I guess. I'm not sure if you'd is the right word to describe that. But we kinda see at least as far as the movie depicts it all of these. Hostilities are really kind of going one way from Murphy to Tunstall tunstall's kind of seems to be almost trying to be a peacekeeper but because Murphy is has also cattleman in there a competing business. He's trying to essentially get rid of tunstall regardless we start to see this climax when some of Murphy's men I an ambush John Tunstall and kill him now. Is there any truth to this beef between Murphy and Tunsil. Yeah there's a lot of truth to the beef and truth to do that very unfortunate almost execution scene and you're right it is a few and the quick history is that. LG Murphy formed of this operation. He had a he had beef contracts with the government which you will hear him talk about early in the film when he in the first confrontation between tunstall Murphy he talks about having beef contracts and then being in competition he did have beef contracts with the government to supply. The army with beef supply the Apache reservation area with beef yet. All kinds of things going got.

10 Reasons to Stay On Board the Ship in Cruise Ports

"What all the ten good reasons for staying aboard a cruise ship when it's import? I'm Gary Obamacare. This is another of my tips for travelers. I'm on a cruise but I'm staying on board Wimmer Import Report today and that got me thinking why didn't share with you. Ten reasons that I think are great ones for staying on board and not exploring the port starting with this one it's important to remember that cruises are also vacation time. It's time to relax. And if you're on a very port intensive cruise you could end up coming back from your trip being retired. If you're out exploring you coming back to eating. During the show's drinking dancing. Stay up late so actually taking a day out one day when the ship is important. Just just relax. You can sleep in late. Get up late. The ship's can be much quieter. The elevators are going to be quieter the ships going to be quieter. And it's just a time to slow down and and relax and make one of your holiday vacation days a total relaxation day. Because after all you coming on a cruise to have a great time but also to relax and unwind wind. I think that's a really really good reason for staying on board a second. Good reason is just frankly the is not of interest either because you visited before. Aw or you're just actually not interested in it doesn't repealing. The weather's terrible to windiest rainy. It's too hot perhaps. You've been to see all of the key sites and the secondary. Oh totally sites that you can see just are not very interesting. Stay on board and enjoy the ship. Another really good reason for staying on board is if the port is just. Would it be crazy busy so often. I would take a look on sites like crews timetable and take a look at how many ships are going to be important. You could go to some ports with is going to be up to fifteen fifteen to twenty thousand passengers all different ships getting off and just making the place completely crazy so actually. It's much stay on board the ship in those ports where it's just just GonNa be mad busy crazy so planet advance. If you look at your shed join us going to five or six ports take a look at aside like crews timetables see see how the different ports are and preps pick one point which is going to be crazy busy where you're going to just enjoy time on board the ship and not have to fight all the crowds on land. The fourth reason for me staying on board depends a lot around the type of ship that I'm cruising on so if it's a big resort ship which has huge amounts of facilities facilities ice skating. rinks climbing rings. Go karting forty simulations escape rooms all sorts of huge amounts of activities. He's I will often plan to spend one or two days on board the ship because the ship is part of the vacation. If you're out exports all day. You're going to struggle to experience all of those things that you basically paid for within your fair so particularly if it's a resort ship always like to plan time on board rather than going to the port because after all I'm on a ship is a resort in his own right if are much smaller ship with much less facilities and it may be much more than about the ports themselves and the destinations. If you're on a ship which has lots of facilities acivities staying on board. And he's one of the days is a really good idea. Another really good reason for staying on board is you'll find in Portes. They're usually usually a huge amount of office so particularly SPA. We'll have all sorts of discounts off two for ones also offers which make going to the spa much much cheaper about often find them might be happy hour special cocktails of the day or other activities which are at a reduced price so actually. It's a great way to do some things you want to do without paying full the price I'd love but it's really really expensive and going on Portes is what I would normally do. Because you'll find you get great prizes when you're on a cruise you'll know the finding space and time that can be quite a struggle so if you go on Porta you'll find that normally is our quiet. You can get a machine. You can get a tumble dry and do your laundry much much easier. A great reason for staying on board is simply that it's quiet. The facilities are not going to be busy and that's particularly important around around the pool area. So what are the big challenges on ships is often finding a great lounger near the pool. A great spot or being able to use the hot tubs. You'll find on Portes that you're gonNA find great lounges. You're going to swim. You're going to be able to use the hot tubs and many of the other facilities around the ship restaurants are going to be much quieter. And there's going to be no lines minds often t if you wanted to go to. That is going to be much quieter if you wanna go and try things like flow riders or waterslide. Ride's GonNa find. You can do multiple times without queuing up so the ship is just much quieter. All those things that you want to do and try to just be completely either empty or free being able to choose that fantastic antastic lounger in a great location and be able to actually use the pool and the hot tubs is a really big plus for staying onboard and other good reason for staying on board is still going to be huge huge amounts to do so even if they're not big facilities on board the ship you'll still find. The daily program has lots of activities with its fitness class Trivia. Craft classes assist talks. There will always be a full promo events. Ships will always make the design things for people to do who are staying on board. So there's still going to have lots of things to do so even if you are on a smaller ship there will be a full Deli program of activities. So if you're yearning to win that Trivia competition the advantage of doing it on a day is maybe less competition and and you have a great chance of winning that Trivia Quiz but definitely there are still going to be loads of things to do. We think that if you soundboard even if it's on a smaller ship there's going to be nothing nothing to do. There's going to be a full daily program of events. One of the key reasons that I stay on board on Portes is to get around the ship and take photographs offs and video of the ship when it's not crowded and full of people so if you want to take great pictures of you your friends and Family Portes is a great day to do that. Because everybody's everywhere is not going to be cluttered up and you're going to be able to take notch shots of the ship. You're standing by staircases without people. Hassling you to get by so I will soundboard at at least one to Porto now on a cruise so I can take my photographs. I can do videos of the ship without having loads of people in them so definitely. It's a great way of exploring seen the ship and getting those photographs that you want to take and really important of course because having photographs taken by the crews land can be quite expensive. This great opportunity for you to get out there. You're take photographs and you have time to experiment. Take lots of photographs and perhaps save some money on those cruise photographs. Staying on board will also help help with your budget if you go out on excursions they can cost quad out of money so crews on excursion. You'RE GONNA be paying fifty one hundred two hundred dollars or more per person per per excursion so that can rack up a lot of self exploring you still might have entry fees into museums or you have food to buy drinks to buy enterpise. He's whatever that is so actually it's way of helping to manage a budget so if you actually have a day on board the ship you're not going to be spending money because obviously things are all included within your fair or your food and drink and entertainment so it's a really good way of actually helping manage the budgets. Perhaps if there are a couple of excursions that you really want to go on in some ports you can perhaps splash on those knowing that you got a day on board where you're going to balance out your budgets so definitely it's one way of helping manage your crews

I'm the forecast will things gotten so massive over the years. And boy if we could just get Churchill Downs to bring back hall of Balu, wait having all. Who knows looks good though champions park. This is announced from is winners at your name. Dany Wimmer Wimmer, Danny Wimmer presents. Thank you. Ian. Hometown rising. I love their abbreviation for Louisville LV L. That's the way the ESPN does it sometimes and they're just trying to push graphics into a small space L veal Kyi September fourteenth and fifteenth. Twenty nineteen fact even have a water tower an old school water tower. Now, our traditional one with the letters LV L on it and shows like a farm tractor a farm truck. On the poster anyway, I just tweeted at a few minutes ago, and so then that would follow beefalo by bourbon and beyond and then louder than life. That's pretty cool like that all the way round. Everything's squares up. Nice little B three live music festivals on consecutive weekends. Because you build the infrastructure. This is the Garth Brooks philosophy. This is what's happening here. Like when Garth Brooks seizes a weekend. Well, the stage is already there. You don't have to move your equipment. It's all set up. How will they'll say Garth? Brooks is going to be such and such in whatever city, and he's going to be there on this date. And then all of a sudden the tickets go on sale right now. As soon as they fill up, and they'll say, guess what gone. Brooks is going to be there. The next night at seven o'clock. I think it's seven o'clock this kind of early tickets also guess what Garth Brooks decided to do a second show on both of those nights at ten fifteen or whatever and then they'll sell out right away because you don't have to haul your equipment around. You don't have to reset things up the performers can encamped themselves for a few days, and then not drag themselves from city to city to city to city when they just make a long stand out of it. So this is kinda cool this infrastructure getting used multiple times. And it's just makes for a festive way, and they're they're handling the traffic and much better ways. It's tough. Because again, this is a situation where one side of the venue, even though there's river road is an impenetrable barricade. That's the Ohio river. So you have fewer routes to scatter. That's why it's a little more cumbersome getting in here. But the venue the park area L works out great for all that. So it's just a matter of plan accordingly. So that you can get in and out of their enjoy yourself for bourbon and beyond or louder than live for next year hometown rising that whole thing system matter of, you know, working out in your mind. Oh, this is going to be a little bit more of a job to get it. All right, now, speaking of music, I'm gonna take a minute here. Because I saw that.

"To offer to anyone who's doing content creation, and you can hear how Michelle excited by like when I asked her, like, what's the reward that is the reward and it's true Wimmer writing and and preparing our remarks and you'd writing blog posts all those things. We do it someone in isolation in order a little bubble, and then we put out into the world and then we wait to see if anything happens. Same thing. When you, you know, you send your carefully crash. Email you sent out like, did anyone reply and it's, it's always great. So that's a very easy thing. Could people be doing just to start engaging and paying some gratitude forward for the impactful or having her life? I, I'm curious though, about in particular around around sort of how you sustain connection with not your closest people like, you know, you've got your best friend kinda grew with like that second and third tier out the people that you might see once a year at a conference, the people that are maybe in an online community with you, the people that you like, you know, we, we, we like each other, but like what's the effort? How are you going to like? Make sure your sustaining connections with those kinds of people so that they don't just kind of flip past you. So one is you have to. It's been good to yourself if you try. I mean, if I could show you like this is just the recent pile of business cards on my desk. If I give you the camera over there, it's about this high of business. There's no way I'm getting through all of these ends. That's okay. You know, I give people Rishon to like you don't have to hit them all if it becomes work. He don't do it. There's a way to prioritize and there's a way to make sure that you're hitting some and maybe a little bit more than you did before. I think there's a lot of different tools that we can use a legitimate mechanisms for what I say, increasing the law familiarity. So then the last section of the book we talk about what to do after the conversation, and how do you have moved from conversation to connection and long term relationship into military's important piece of that. We need to stay in somebody's mind without getting interface at love that line. That's so good. So you know, okay. So let's let's think about all the boys. We just mentioned. Social media is a great way to increase. The invitation I've been in there are network is updates are made might pop up. We might like something or comment on something right, participate in a group where we have some of those people who are name pops out. We might do like touches like sending who regulations or regards or happy birthday. So has it you remember to do those light touches? Do you have a a time during the week that you stop to think about it, or is it more like you see something and use respond to it in the moment? I am somebody who. I would pops into my head if I can't do it right then and there just jot their name and my calendar. And so for somebody like you or somebody who might be more of a annual biannual type of check in just keep keeps the warm connection. There might be some social media stuff that happens in between because we're both content creators, but for the most part might be a quick Email saying was thinking about you, hey, here's what's wrong with you and a quick check in..
