"woodstock" Discussed on Talk Is Jericho
"To me. Because i know that mark willis who's been fosse's manager and a business partner of mine on the cruise and many of the things for over twenty years is actually there and so when i decided to do this podcast. Stacey para who's been my producer on this show for eight years for every episode of ever done of talk is jericho was also there so i thought we can kill two birds with one stone. Do a really cool podcast crazy documentary and have two of my longtime collaborators. Make their talk is jericho debut. So now you guys are really going to be superstars. It's funny though watching this documentary. It kind of reminded me a lot of the fire. Fest documentary. When i saw it and i had happened to me the guy who was actually there and kind of hear his side of the of the documentary and his side of the experiences and see if that kind of job because as we know every documentary. Kinda has an agenda and mark for first and foremost. Let's just talk about this first of all because woodstock ninety four i remember. I was living in tennessee at the time. Which was the first place ever really experienced. Mtv i grew up in canada and i remember woodstock ninety four was just like it was it was really a whole different vibe. The ninety nine specific remember the classic green day moments of everybody in the crowd throwing mud onto the stage and green day. Throwing it back but it wasn't kind of a mean violent thing. It was just kind of a fun spraying beer in each other's faces at a party or something along those lines so there was definitely two separate vibes between ninety four and ninety nine. Would you agree. Mark the first year of midtown in atlanta and it was a huge event that did her thousand people jazz. Fest was coming up. So the land of the festivals were being born in in and around that time and suddenly hundred thousand people was accepted and will and people would love. It was new thing in the us. In europe it had been pretty popular model for a while. But you know they're they don't have arenas for basketball teams and things do shows so they were already doing festivals. Ninety four woodstock came along and it was without woodstock legacy vein and you know people were excited about it and then you saw the pictures and it of reminded you a little bit of ninety nine the mud the drugs you know the throw in the but it wasn't it was violent it wasn't jeannin walkaway from it. Going to be afraid of it actually i think enticed promoters to kind of want to get into this model even more which led to ninety nine. And it's interesting too because obviously woodstock sixty nine was was created by michael lang. Who i believe was just you know early twenties guy and created this vessel that got completely out of hand for him and i think he lost a lot of money in that timeframe but then to created this legendary iconic festival twenty-five years later he does part two was part two of a success Enough to lead part three as far as financially from vibe standpoint from a from a word of mouth standpoint. I think it was sick about it. They made a documentary at sixty nine. That really kind of glorified and romanticized the good parts of the festival. Look if unit given me the same footage. I could've delivered to you a documentary very similar to the hbo documentary in ninety nine from sixteen. So i mean you know. I say she nine. They showed all the cool music moments but they weren't showing the infrastructure broken down. They were showing the mass overdoses. They weren't showing the tents being burnt down in the name of profiteering. By you know a number of factions that were there so when he did ninety four i think ninety four actually came up pretty well But again one of the first things they did. Chris was chaired offenses down. So again he you know he couldn't really control over the gate and so once again here he was. I think michael lang was like okay. We pulled it off after twenty five years. Let's do it again and let's do it really big this time and i'm sure in the back of his mind it was like what do i gotta do to really profit from this Now stacy can you explain kind of first of all why you were there and what role. You're you're playing there and also to where exactly did woodstock ninety nine take place woodstock ninety nine was in rome new york upstate new york i had never been to upstate new york prior to going i went not as a concert goer i was working for westwood one at the time and westwood one had the radio broadcast rights and was doing three live broadcasts from the festival friday saturday sunday from i think we started at two o'clock and we would take our broadcast live to midnight so i was part of that crew and my specific job for westwood one at that time for that event was i was in our vo rv so we converted an rv into a recording booth so that we could have some of the radio jocks that partner with come in and record like band introductions and throws to commercial break in welcome back and if there was a problem they could fill for time and so i literally was in that video booth with to kinda capture this stuff and this is you know pre kind of modern technology so we were literally recording on reel to reel i was cutting tape with a razor blade and handing it out the door to a runner who would run it to the broadcast truck which was really only about twenty feet away and they would have to rack it up and play it back and you know i i had a walkie-talkie because even though we really twenty feet away there weren't cell phones so the truck would be walking to me. We need three minutes. Phil so i would grab whoever was around. We had partnered with like k rock new york and boston and why. Espn philly and so there was always someone mingling around to cut tracks grab them cut tracks go in so i didn't actually get to be out in the crowd too much but did get to see a little. Bit for instance metallica. I think closed own. I should say where we were located. We were in the media compound so the media compound was behind a giant chain link fence on this air force base and there was an e. stage and a west stage. They were roughly two miles apart from each other. Like one end of the tarmac to the other end of the tarmac and we were almost right in the middle so we were about a mile from each stage. We had staff situated on both stages. Because again you know. Technology exists like does now and so they had walkie-talkies and would communicate back with us. What bands coming up if there were changes if things were running long so that we could plan accordingly from the broadcast and so that's kind of how we were communicating. So in between things. I was able to sort of run out of our compound. 'cause we had built a little compound with the mobile recording unit a couple of rv's generators porta-pottys to wallace off and we were surrounded on the outside by other radio stations. That were there broadcasting. Live as well and so you could run out and stand on someone else's truck and see so you could see both stages obviously from a distance we binoculars and stuff so we just watched..

"Yes over. Would the last couple of months woodstock ninety nine. There's a documentary on. Hbo max I must say it came out two or three months ago or so and it's been making some news seems imposts on it I think to me shared some things. And just in general. I've seen some things on facebook and social and Got me curious. Got me Documentary curious and we happen to have an hbo max subscription so a jumped on it. And i finally because the fact that it's you know it's definitely hard are as far as the the subject and all that kind of stuff and individuals hard to watch the kids around. So i finally finished it. Yeah you're thirty minutes into the show when it when we're in nashville that there's a good example. Yeah so i finally watched it without chunks of it in four and And i understand you have as well. Yeah i actually seen it. All i knew was ninety. Nine was i don't even think it was on the music Related was like rolling stone or spin or anything. Like that i remember an image of fred durst on top of. Maybe it wasn't even him or sh the kids on top of the Broken planks or the you know the pieces of wood Like crowd surfing. And i remember the covers kind of like our concerts safe. Some kind of like scare thing. But i think it was on like time or newsweek or like it was like you know woodstock falling apart or that kind of stuff. I never watched the mtv footage live. I do know that they don't remember seeing it unfold that way. I didn't know a lot of the things about like where it was located and stuff like that. So where were you at. With your knowledge. I knew very little i just knew. Some bad shit went down and that was pretty much it. Yeah i know. I knew some of the more extreme things but And i definitely saw some of the footage at the time a more on the news end of it though not like live during the event it just For what it's worth this is. This is not the kind of thing i would. I don't think. Wow ward. I great lineup. I think wow. I don't wanna see most of these people you know what i mean. It's kind of like the iheartradio festival is now. But you know it's just like they have this just mishmash of everything and it's just like well. I don't wanna fucking sit through most of these bands to see the ones that i really want e- especially then because you know i. My concert. money was very much more limited than it would be today But i i really didn't get into it that much. I i knew people were pissed off and limp biscuit. I wasn't much of a fan. So i didn't care i just i don't know it was more. Yeah i was more. And and i don't know what the word is i. I just didn't have you just like yeah. Yeah okay yeah. Of course that fucking corporate capitalistic attempt to go back to this this Idyllic nineteen sixty nine concert. Which of course is not as gillick is we want to believe was was a shit show so i was probably kind of happy because i always hated the woodstock brand. Who are there's trash deal. Twenty eight yeah. I remember somehow like like woodstock. Ninety four came out in so i was twenty at the time. And i remember hearing like okay the rebooting it and then when it came out five years later it was like okay the rebuilding again. It was just kind of like a blip on the screen for me like wasn't a deal. I remember that this a go. There's a lot more hard rock acts on this and stuff like that but but commit maybe we without you know taking away from the whole documentary. Just throw a couple of facts like location and things like that and kind of build from the get into a man. Okay so you know. I don't think woodstock ninety four was at woodstock eater. Basically it's none of them have been back at the original one right but this one They decided Like the first one is notorious for the that the The people could just walk on and not pay for tickets right. You know just people just showed up and that was the whole thing about the one sixty nine. That's how you end up with so many damn people but this thing is is on an air force air force base. So let's just call it a massive Asphalt parking lot to begin with with big fences. You can't get into it so it's completely controlled Things like grass around ages though okay but from the there's plenty of cement asphalt. You are correct. Yeah and it's flack and it's flat and all that. And then they had and the tickets were depending on where you look online. We're somewhere between one hundred fifty and let's just call it two hundred dollars the fees for three day fast ninety nine is roughly And also you have to think about going into this to the ninety nine. You didn't vendors. Didn't use credit cards you had to use. It was basically a cash world at the time. You need to bring all your with you things like that cell phone those those remote site i Atm's member fucking slow. Those were there was like a five minute. You've heard first transaction man. Yeah it would be. It would be like a dialup. You actually hear the the modem sometimes kin. yeah so it's so think about all those different things and a massive You know going into it and oh the other thing i knew about it going into it was four or five dollars for water. I remember that was a big deal to back in the day to which i think that would roughly work out to being charged for water now in general right waters four bucks at a concert or something like that four or five dollars but yeah back then. It was outrageous. Ourageous i guess and twenty eight years ago so yeah yeah but but either way this last weekend we went to an art fest for like two hours and it was in the parking lot of a bed bath beyond all right. It was maybe ninety degrees out. It felt like it was one hundred degrees. Wouldn't the asphalt was there for two hours wanted to leave. and also anytime. I'm in a in a parking lot almost kind of looking for skid row without sebastian bach. Because that's where all this work like that. That sebastian in a parking lot. That's right you know. We're probably near is looking beyond to exactly but anyway so just within two or three hours i had just. I'd seen this. This documentary was like i cannot even imagine being here for a day and not to step on the lead too much on just that note. I remember like thinking. Like there's no way i i mean after i might have made it through two days right i would have been packing my shit up and leaving on day three the morning of i don't care who's fucking plan i. It doesn't matter. This is but i'll doll elaborate more on that later. Yeah so but So i get it a little fucking my feet are fucking killing me because i stood and watched ron keel for two hours last night. Sorry young man. i think. that's it's going. So this documentary goes a lot of different ways and we'll kind of like debate. What we think not think about it but the end result is this is not like being a spoiler because the whole story of was diagnosed before you come in there is it started and ended with riots and people dying and Sexual assault and all these things that i think all happen in day. Two or three and and And however you must licencees. We'll go through it. There's a lot of theorising and the people that are there and all this stuff like.

"That was a an announcement that supposedly out. That's kind of the like donnybrook acid and it was attributed to famed. Dj wavy gravy. But did he actually say it was actually bad. So we'll find out later. okay. A brown acid. You don't remember hearing that. I don't we color brown like acid pieces of paper because they're little squares right like the break off a sheet. Yes yes and i think oftentimes said they were unlike sugarcubes. Dropped on sugar okay. Liquid dropped onto a sugar started to evolve to be con- piece like a piece of paper a little square that you recall. Yes i mean. I've seen them before. So how did acid find. Its way to the peace in love music festival that was woodstock in nineteen sixty nine but its journey. There began in the laboratory. Swiss chemist albert hoffman in nineteen. Thirty eight acid is the layman's term for the lethargic acid i'd maybe also known as l. t. right so chemical combination yep Yes allergic asset nice. No it's not nice anyway. So hoffman synthesized it in nineteen thirty eight but he didn't realize that it was hallucinogenic or it had hallucinogenic properties until nineteen forty three when he ingested a small amount and he at that point preceived quote extraordinary shapes with intense kaleidoscopic play of colors well what did he do with it from nineteen thirty eight to nineteen forty three. Not sure what did he do with it. Listen let us know if you now have you know so. Lsd was used experiments by psychiatrists through the forties fifties and sixties while researchers failed to discover any medical use for the drug the free samples supplied by sandoz pharmaceuticals for the experiments were distributed. Broadly leading to wide use. So i guess people that were like in these in these trials were like here. You know here friends. Oh my god. So during the fifties and sixties the cia began a program called m. k. Ultra were. They experimented with lsd and other substances on both volunteers and unwitting subjects. Believed that lsd can be used as a psychological weapon in the cold war. Hypnosis shock therapy interrogation other dubious mind control techniques were also part of m. k. Ultra can you imagine on wings wild. You think something you think you're going to die for sure for like no reason. What did i eat and then back then. I don't know how what their control what's right lake. I can't even imagine so. It was also in the early nineteen sixty s that harbor professors timothy leary and richard alpert began experimenting with psychedelics with the intent of understanding their effects on people. So richard alpert is actually meant might be better known as rom dos to some people So he and timothy timothy leary. I don't know him personally timothy leary. Sounds like me. And tim so he and timothy leary. Yeah took it themselves and they really got experience to this like kind of almost profound spirit like they on a different spiritual plane mean. They just like blew their minds. One of the experiments the to conducted was called the good friday experiment. Which i found. This is an interesting one where ten divinity school students were given suicide then and another ten.

But you did see uncle beautiful people that demise the hippie static and she was afraid and she was so pretty. She was literally shaking. I mean imagine a young girl sitting on a stool with their acoustic guitar singing by herself.

Woodstock vibe experience That kind of meda created that album. Look up and she saw all these lights mean. People really bring candles to woodstock and if so why i mean I guess for camping purposes. I don't know but it certainly weren't cell phones right. It was looking at Certainly matches who which would have gone out in. The the rained during melanie set. It was a nice soft warm rain and enjoyable rain at that particular juncture and. That's when she thought about it and she wrote candles in the rain which was our biggest hit now one of the next artists. Arlo guthrie right.

"The women were getting molested right and left. You can even see it in the documentary. These women topless women are are are in the mosh pit so to speak in their. They're getting touched by all these hands. Or it's ludicrous. Total opposite of one thousand nine hundred sixty nine and like i said they should have called it something else and you know it was karma because it didn't have good intentions. It was it was a money. Grab to off my opinion off of the original woodstock and they should have called it somewhat. Something else sir. Had it in a different place but It is a fascinating documentary but It really bummed me out because it just it was. I don't know how you feel but do you think it's a stain on. The memories of the original woodstock has nothing to do with the original woodstock guy as you say it was a totally different kind of thing. I think the movie did a good job. In showing the tenor of the times in ninety nine was all about the angry white boy and he's angry. White boys all got together and were violent than and set fires and molested women and after three days of no food. No water horrible. He exploded into orgy of violence. Sort of like apocalyptic style. It was horrible absolutely happened. Just know the extent of it. It was truly a harsh. You invited to that as a now. It's funny eighteen and sixty nine. When i went to the original woodstock in the nineties. I was sweating my forties. And i didn't want to go back to woodstock in my forties. The one ninety four hundred understand. We went off really well. They had a lot of the original artists from woodstock sixty nine and off without a hitch. But something about ninety nine The movies a hard. It's a hard because it builds up to that last night like after the first night you see the people sliding around and mud. We'll guess what it wasn't mud. The toilets had overflown over of all they were selling.

Hey might as going back so mike. We did a podcast episode two years ago and it was the fifty th anniversary woodstock and you had a book coming out maybe could remind listeners. About your book woodstock back to on it's beautiful hardcover book with hundreds of pictures and all kinds of memorabilia and a personal anecdotes about falling in love There's a section of golden bite into the dance but with an incredible list of artists that they wanted to perform in for one reason or another. They couldn't we list those artists and we list the reason they couldn't perform you also list every single artist. The timing they went on the timely went off their set list their personnel and their top five albums. and there's also some some things are set straight also in the book especially the schedule.

The godfather of concert sound He really should be in the rock and roll hall of fame and through bill hanley. He turned me onto some of these other guys behind the scenes like professor langhorne at nyu. Who was just an amazing hero woodstock as well as some of the other people even spoke to the guys that were up on stage warning people about the brown acid. I spoke to fans artists managers all kinds of people that were related to woodstock and i must say people are loving. It asked you. Did you speak to the promoters. I did not speak to the promoters. Probably because they had their michael lang had his own book out. Maybe that's why i don't know. what are you saying. Grew quick before we get to. You did a new article for a gold mine which is the best albums of woodstock artists and lists all thirty two artists. You give your best what you think. Their best record is which we'll get to a moment. But i never heard your opinion of the other woodstock events. Nineteen ninety nine and nineteen. Ninety nine was a disaster and michael ninety four and michael lang made excuses about ninety nine. There was a big riot. A big fire is a documentary about it It was not in the same spirit of the original woodstock and personally my opinion is that the whole thing was a disgrace Should not have been called woodstock. It should have been called something else. I don't know you feel. I agree with you. Although the documentary fascinating it is yeah. It was just an event that it it just didn't work fred durst from limp. Biscuit incited a riot telling people to burn stuff telling people to destroy stuff i mean..

Digging it in your hand of music musicians musical genres the history of the form. The feuds the fights the love and it's an interesting kind of a subcategory.

Perry beyond says down a couple. It's just it's a natural part. I think it all goes back to two behind the music to vh one's behind the music arc the rise and fall arc like we love to watch rosters become rockstars. We loved a lot watch rockstars crash and burn you know and reliably. We get both ends of that in your typical rock documentary. Well let me psychoanalyze you a little bit. Why do we that. Why do we wanna see. These majestic figures of popular. Music hit their peaks and then crashed so painfully right. It's it's a celebrity worship thing.

Robinhood to allow buying fractional shares of GameStop, AMC
"But we start off with game stopped or game on check. Today's price action on wall. Street's hottest stock maybe one out of stock game. Stop gaining more than two percent while other heavily shorter names like costs. Amc and blackberry also posted gains robinhood easing trading restrictions today allowing users to buy fractional shares in game stop and amc but these socks are still down big for the week. So what is the current state of this read rebellion that has captured wall street's attention let's bring him back bassani so we got a couple of big questions for you number one here. Can we actually say that. The rebellion is over based on what we've seen over the past couple of days when we know that restrictions have still been in place on trading the stock. I found a the main is over. But it's found a level and. I think it's subsided. I mean just look at the the volatility today remarkably low and i know you mentioned restrictions but what restrictions there's someone robin hood but trade. It almost fifty million shares. I mean heck of a lot of people are trading robin woodstock. It's not a bunch of russian sitting out there so there's very few restrictions out there and i don't think that's a big inhibition for the stock right now has short interest. Come down enough to the point where we say that short-squeezes over we know that it's dropped significantly over the past week or so down by more than fifty percent or something like that but it's still pretty high. It's it's a moving target. I see different numbers every day. And it's actually fairly difficult to get a real accurate number. Clearly we can say it's way down. Now here's my bet. Bet see new shorts on this story coming in. I wouldn't be surprised if we gotta level at fifty percent and it stayed there for a long time because a lot of people still feel even ninety dollars this thing. This is ridiculously over-priced. There are plenty of people who had ten dollar bloat numbers on this just a few months ago. So it's a moving target. But i wouldn't be surprised if there were new shorts coming in in the weeks ahead last question we have for you tonight. Regulation where would it come from. Who would be the target. Yellen really being smart here. She's being a leader. She's going to channel all this energy and she just knows what she's doing. I'll tell you what the concern the street has is. This could morphine. Do some kind of broader investigation. So finra has always been there the regulators of the brokers finres already said. We're looking at game of vacation of trading that's a hornets nest because immediately you can start saying it's the site you have suitable for your investors. Do you have a balloons going off. Or when people make a trade you have hot trades of the day at the top with this induce people. Who would not normally make these trays to do that. And engage in behavior. That is not suitable for their type of investing. That's a real hornets nest. Melissa i know the sec is looking at mark manipulation. That's a different story. I think that's going to be a very tough case to prove. I'm not sure that what happened here with red confines with the normal indications of some kind of pump and dump operation. I think they're gonna have a hard time proving that particular one. Yeah thank you.

Being a one-man-band in business
"It so if folks want to check out what you're working on. Its use slingshot dot com and your h one is your easiest swag campaign. ever quality branded swag accustomed. merchandise store for employees fans and worldwide fulfillment. And where you stand now. You're the only employee you're single founder. And you do. Have you told me many contractors. Who are doing design or development or fulfillment or just filling in gaps can't handle on a day-to-day basis as founder. Do you wanna give folks an idea of where the business stands whether you are willing to to share revenue just some type of size to give an idea of the stage you launched it. It is december of two thousand twenty and you launched january. So it's about a year old. But i'm guessing you had worked on it for quite a bit before. Then go on that at all. Basically twenty nineteen when i launch it actually. The january first is almost two years. Got yeah totally different model. That was working pretty well. We had about ten clients on that model was month the month. It was neat. Swag story giveaway points and you can kind of transfer those points in to like. Hey he did something. Great there was a kpi or a birthday or start date. I'm really fun. But we knew it was one of the things that wasn't a requirement at a company. They'll still trying to build that really fine. Product market fit for the necessity. And it's hard to do and kobe and march and so when that hit this year every single person quit except for one. We're still trying to build up that market and find out what that was. And since then i've met with a really smart people since then that helped me kind of guide my way to the troop paddock market. That we now have an awesome platform that had of now. We're gonna hit around two hundred thousand by the end of this year and revenue. I saw him the only employee. And i'm wearing billion hatchets. My wife knows and other than that. I am able to really export and pay premium. People don't actually physically. No but i paid for you know fulfillment and some warehouse and now i pay people for marketing and down the building new product releases but allowed me to really focus on sales client relationships etc. So we're doing really well. It's a totally different changements. Still in the same vein that we are giving away grape swag to people deserve it and that's the thing is is your background is in design and you x and if folks want to check you out dribble you've john howard is your username and you actually started an agency called black airplane which is at black airplane dot com that you exited about four or five years ago and he sold it to someone who could who could level it up but i mean the logos on the homepage of that are coca cola. Mcdonald's home depot the weather channel. So i mean those were. I'm assuming clients many clients that you closed right so are you. Are you the double threat of an amazing designer and also an enterprise sales person. That'd be a little braggadocious for me. But i appreciate i think really look at things more for user experience side. And that's what he has given me. An ability always wanted to start a business. I think that was my first love. I lost my job at an agency. That i worked at and kind of forced me into. Hey why not start an agency love business and you love doing design work. That was the kind of love story there. And because of that. I put all of my effort into making that happen. That was black airplane. I did not do any development. There was just a dying we ended up working with some really amazing clydes that you mentioned some of those cola being one of the most recognizable here in atlanta. And because of that. I kind of handed that off at one point that i really wanted to go build a product company especially working with products all the time and people who are doing products and keeps you energized. And i handed off people much more formidable to me to building an agency building that up and they're just doing a tremendous job now and they made it now the full gamut of design and development. So it's really grown. it's blown up. I think eighteen people now. And when i left it was two people and we had eight contractors so big change for you. That's that's cool to know when to hand something off and you know when to let it kind of take wings and give it to someone who perhaps can can take it to that next level if it's not something you want to do. I'm curious then. So you were running this agency. The description on the home pages were a digital product design and development firm in woodstock georgia and we're on a mission to make sure no digital experience gets left behind. You obviously have the chops weather. Your own design skills or through the network of contractors or employees that you worked with to build full on digital products web and mobile whatever. Why start something. A physical component basically a swag not a swag shop. It's it's a. You started a product that allows other brands to launch their own swag campaigns or swag shops versus just going building a suffer product. A sass or whatever because you obviously have the skill and the experience to do that. Yeah and i. I've done that before If i could show my rap sheet of how many things have failed might give you a long list done a lot that they they made minor successes here and there. But i've learned a lot along the way. I'm really fascinated with physical and kind of marrying digital world to a physical product. And i think i've really been obsessed with that for a long time and we'll be excited about it was at Black airplane we didn't slap and i don't know how the slagle it's now there but it's always been great. Slept our websites and name to we're about on people swag. We just gave them really great swag every single time. People would brag on that we had. I used to joke that people would wear the black airplane swag out to the park or on a date they would rip the sleeves off and there and cut grass with it. You know. it wasn't one of those types of shirts that you hated or hats or whatever really nice stuff and i saw. The people got really excited about that and there was a neat. And i'm really obsessed with your experience i wanted to build. This product platform had married that experience of getting something from an employee your colleague or boss and in receiving that in your hand and physically seeing that side of things as well so i got
"woodstock" Discussed on LGBTQ&A
"I remember when i first started transitioning or thinking about transitioning and i was so laser focused thinking about gender all the time and the thing that was the most freeing to me was to be like. Oh actually i'm never going to think about it. And i don't care because it's not real and no matter how hard i think about it. It's not like a math equation. Where someday. I'm going to get the right answer. It's just fake. And so now i talk to people all the time who are baby is or who think they might be trans and they're like what is gender like how do i know if i'm trains or if i just wanna be trans and maybe i'm not buying area. Maybe i'm this or maybe that and i'm like honestly the key is to never try to figure out what gender is because there is no right answer and yet my whole podcast is the premise is to try to figure out what gender is so. I don't know what i'm doing. Oh that's kind of amazing that you decided that you never want to think about gender in now professionally old that you talk about totally think that i had to let go a little bit in order to do it professionally because it yeah you think too much into hard trying to get this one right answer of gender it really does consume you but once you let go. It's a lot easier to have a bunch of conversations with a bunch of different people about what they think. Gender is without trying to find the one correct answer. I love you freeze out about not. They're not being one answer. Because i think that when it comes to gender and sexuality we think that my experience is the only experience and everyone else has exact. Same one increasingly. It's oh every single individual as a completely different one totally that's the thing about gender. It's that sort of high thought of like what if you're blue is my green and your red is my blue right thapa with gender. It's like what if your boy is in my boy. And what if your girls at my girl and ultimately it does not matter and it shouldn't matter at something that i think some people get stuck on their blue to be my blue and they want their boy to be my boy and it doesn't have to be. There's no reason that it has to be that way it just a minute ago. You mentioned early in your transition. I think that when we talk about transitioning most commonly discussed it has a binary thing as a non binary person like. Do you use that language in. Consider yourself as having transitioned. Oh yeah for sure. I mean i think of all of my transition is different. So when i teach workshops about gender. I talk about three different types of transitions. I talk about social transitioning legal transitioning and medical or physical transitioning. All of those things can take time and none of those things that are binary of simply. I hadn't transitioned in. Then i did transition they're all these long processes but typically the first thing that happens and certainly the first thing that happened with me was a social transition so i started by just telling a few of my friends. Hey i'm thinking about maybe using them pronouns. Could you try those out for me. And then expanding that out more and more people and more and more people. And then i started saying. Hey you know. I am not a woman. Please don't refer to me as one and that was all my social transition and it actually took years for me to do another part of a social transition which was to change my name obviously not nonbinary people and not all trans people change their name but that would also be part of a social transition so you could say my social transition took you know at least four years legally changed the marker on my driver's license and the my birth certificate but i didn't change my name or gender on other documents so my legal transition is still in progress medically. It took me like four years to go into saas girona and not is still a journey. And so you could say. My medical journey is still in process. So i certainly am always transitioning <hes>. There are also obviously nonbinary. People who don't use to medically transition or don't choose to legally transition. They may still feel like they have transitioned in some way. Just because they transitioned how they thought about themselves or how other people thought about them or if they don't wanna use that language that's also fine. I've never heard anyone break it down like that. The social medical and legal transitions. And i think it's kind of like blind because ordinarily we say transition and like the first thing you think about as a male to female or female to male and like we don't want to continue the conversations like when you break it down those three things that does really encompass the entire trans experience of nonbinary people as well.

You're right is you have three. Bingo CADS IN. Can you do a link to the Bingo? Yes Yeah I'll definitely have a link to that and then you try and get across or down or if you feel the whole thing you also get fifty dollars. Yes so dollars for across down. Oh Diane all and then fifty do the whole thing now. You can't double dip so like some of the restaurants are more than one cad. You can't go away. Went once to this. And it's on three cats and you cross roloff now right. Yeah you can submit one car right and you have to prove that you is so you have to keep a receipt so some of them are just. You could get a cup of coffee from. La says like the or Eleventh Hour Pete's will starbucks and that's one one bucks coffee all you could get a whole restaurant. We actually got chocolate. All man at Moutari chocolate. I I gotta put a word in for the truffles. We split a box and it was all I could do not eat more than my house. Sorry I thought I spend so these chocolates a divine and so when you order you order online you say which ones and they have a lot of Vegan options and then you choose a time to pick them up and then they email you when they're ready so which. I chose like a noon on Saturday and I got a text like five minutes to noon or the MLS shop twelve fifteen but so it's very organized and they were delivered man. Were they ever? Yeah so good so Matarrese one of those things on the Bingo. Yes yeah credit for that one and a couple of others. We're GONNA talk about. Yes so I had coffee at live with our so we tend to. Let's talk about the one we actually did that. We going to talk about today. Well we did a Sunday lunch from Woodstock Pizza and we had a delivered. I thought it was free delivery but I ended up paying for deliveries. So I don't know so the other pieces delivered I've lived in this country. Many many and this is the first time in my lining for Andrea. I've ever had pizza delivered now. I've lived in lots places Santa Cruz County and I am very urban or suburb. And I'm not a rural person. I don't WanNa live on a well propane so my criteria for where I choose to live. His pizza has to be able to be delivered. I have never done that question on the citizenship pizza delivery you may not be a real. America that pizza. You qualify too much so we had pizza delivered which is a very big variance for me and I like the fact that with Woodstock Pizza. You have a couple of different options online and one of them was half and half so we did half of what you wanted and half what I want and it turned out green so it was so we got the fourteen inch pizza which was interesting because it looked like the sixteen inch pizza and they may folded over the other. Joe Yeah I. The Cross was folded over. If you don't like cross don't get the fourteen at yeah right but I had the pistol primavera. I think is what it was called and it was really good. Oh good so it was pasto. Obviously I'm not a big Red Sox fan so maybe this is a deliberate made me so it was pistou lots of Mozzarella and then it had auditor cots and red onions. Onions and something does not know tomatoes. Oh yellow tomato raw tomato and then something else but it was delicious and tasty analog Lutein and she gave me enough for you know to for lunch and three Fedun I kind of thing or it was too for lunch one afternoon. Tea into I had like four for dinner to for midnight snack and the whole thing. I had the barbecue bird which was barbecue sauce. Instead of the Red Tomato. Saw Okay with chicken barbecued chicken on it and I thought that was really good. Yeah a little bit right on to your was very good. Yeah I'll know. The pizza was excellent. And it felt so juries David delivered I mean. I don't even have to leave the house. I know very marriage investigate that more coming weeks mirrors that were at home all that. I'm not gonNA leave the house. Yeah if I could with delivery and a nice tip. It came to what thirty four dollars? Yeah I think well. I think it was thirty. Seven thirty seven tip tip delivery and sales tax. Yeah yeah yeah totally or two businesses that you WANNA see. Yes stand around and I love that we could do half-and-half yeah that was great. And they have lots of different options. Eight can can also build your own Ray. And they have a gluten free crossed. You can stop wanted. I think you can do a whole wheat. A white array right exactly so you can build your own. We just went for what they had the standards but it was delicious and it was on the Bingo card. It was so we're we're almost there. Twenty four squares to go on is a that is a limited time on the Bingo ends in mid May yes so as from April fifteenth to May fifteenth shop early and often early and often early. Yeah Yeah we managed to get that done. I'm so you have another about the crust? Oh Yeah I was just talking about that. The crust was a lot thicker because we had the folded over section from Fort. And you know I. I know some pizzas. They fold that over but they put cheese in there. Some cheesy breadstick or something. This is just folded over top of the sauce and so it was just an extra but there were. They didn't ton of extra stuff. You could buy breadsticks cheese steaks guy. You know you could add those in scalise pizza. It was enough food definitely for two meals. Yeah Yeah for. Two people wanted a minute snack. Yeah whatever works for your lunch breakfast snack. Oh okay I find that. Actually that's what I love about being an adult as you can have called pizza for breakfast all right all right. So let's see. What else should we talk about? How about our rating system for this? Oh so for me. The rating system was sort of a middle of the road. Yeah me too was a second home. It wasn't the best pizza I've ever had and it wasn't the worst pizza I've ever had so it wasn't like I'll never go back again now. Woodstock is really good because they do a lot of local fundraising. Yes they do and win. They are open is at lovely spot downtown. Santa Cruz outside now. They are train. I'm and I think they're in college town center. This one in San Luis. But I'm definitely. It's a good local pizzeria if you want to support local one in felt and they often support activities in sports and things in the valley to the Santa Valley so so definitely. It was a good choice. Yeah so where is it located on Front Street? Do you have on the actual address but is in that Little Plaza there with trader Joe's. Cvs Kinko's kind of yeah of stakes affects right of an ex. Yeah and actually backs onto front street as Funster and I've driven by there a couple of times and there's a line out on the sidewalk they have the mark every eight and people are waiting to pick up their orders going there but you can get delivery but they probably didn't know that now does not from this country. He's a delivery all right. Let's see so we believe we are second helping on that. One will probably come back and we're downtown sometime looking for pizza and we WANNA leave these guys with some food words of wisdom to and this is from Yogi Bear Yogi Berra and he said you better pizza four slices because I'm not hungry enough to eat six.

NYC they were from Woodstock the real wood stuff the festival is you know happened in Bethel maybe it don't you know that they have to change the venue a couple of times but they kept the name so Bethel New York white lake this is the western Catskills a different place the band were holed up in Bob Dylan country up in Woodstock Saugerties still is a kind of an arts community a very low key place one that certainly and could not have supported the incredible pressure of the throngs that moved in and kept exactly fifty years ago this weekend tomorrow on W. NYC there will be a special program that I hope you'll be listening for in our usual time for a couple of hours it'll run from noon to two and it is called back to the garden Woodstock remembered Woodstock organizes artists audience members recall the nineteen sixty nine music festival that rocked the world in more ways than one music and memories from the historic event that I'll join you with two and will continue sampling some of these rarer performances that have trickled out through the years a big anniversary set just collected a whole bunch of other and that's what I'm dipping into I want to play one more short one and this is a real sweet moment this is at the very beginning of the festival there were bands that was stuck in traffic along with people it was hard to get to this thing after a certain point so a group that was supposed to open called sweet water couldn't make it and the young folk singer from Brooklyn named Richie havens stepped in and he wowed the crowd with his can do and he was willing to improvise as he does here a song that we can all sing along with.

"Was in San Francisco wasn't a Woodstock Woodstock what's not that it was in nineteen sixty eight summer of love right right well you know it's interesting I mean fifty years is it in Spanish interesting up area than the course it's interesting and happening do you find your interesting thank can't replicate it they have tried to do with the stock till they've gone all the acts that are still around and they've asked him when you come back and do it I was reading John Fogerty of Creedence Clearwater revival they have since disbanded over typical problems that rock groups have but Fogarty said he was willing to go back and was signed up to go back in the whole thing fell apart I remember no this is really hot another thing I thought when I found out that this thing took place on a farm and the farm was owned by a guy named Max yeah I asked myself why would some respectable farmer turnover has landed maverick become up didn't die like this yeah I mean I'm just sharing with your random thoughts I had at the time but it is historic there's no question it's a stark and I was eighteen when it happened but also I'm from the middle of the country I'm smack dab in I'm in I'm in in Missouri nothing whatsoever in common with the people that were there I mean it's it's a culture was all different way we were raised wise was all different I Chris okay honestly got I've said this to I think if I had been born anywhere other than where I was I may not have been a success at this radio program if I had any other life experiences yeah a different set of values for example I don't think that I would have had white the ability I've had to relate to mass numbers of people as I have had by growing up in the heartland of the country is not a put down anything it's just you know you think about these things all the what ifs what if I had been born in New York what if you're needing if you play pretend games could have still happened what it and of course there's no way of knowing because you can't change the past but it's still something interesting to conjure I look at I look at what's stack which stock today as an historical event that was emblematic of the of the era of the times with the Vietnam War and real hatred of government because of it distrust of government and the sixties counter culture mixing with with rock the way that it did the former cultural statement and and and we are still being governed by people in that era who have grown up like Bill Clinton was part of that that culture a bunch of people growing up in the sixties have become elected officials in government or did so it's it's it has its historical relevance but at that it's basically was a gigantic rock concert and I'm fascinated as I say by the fact that they are not able to do take two which makes sense in a one stock for all that it was was this gigantic spontaneous event and it was a planned rock concert but nobody ever thought it would shut down the New York Thruway nobody ever thought that it would be calm as gigantic as it did word spread and if you work anywhere near what stock you when you're trying to get there and there was nothing that was going to stop your mud slides thunderstorms lightning rain none of it was going to stop you got there there was bad drugs all over the place EMS people couldn't get in to help people really old beat on some bad there's there's a particularly bad a lot of L. S. D. it was so bad that they were warning people from the stage to avoid the purple packs of LSD it was that bad people were tripping out and injuring themselves tremendously so they want to do it again it's like my age all theory you have something that happens a party at somebody's house or somewhere that spontaneously comes together not planned and it's just great yeah it's such a great time let's do it again next Saturday and you try and you just can't make it the same because everybody's trying to make it what it was rather just showing up and being and they tried to do Woodstock again and they couldn't do it it won't even going to be at the original place and we'll do it someplace else it was a it was a one time thing a one off I did the minute the music from it became available gigantic collection of L. P. as it was albums back then and super eight I had a super great player in the car twelve speakers in my car I had to work for is in the back the upper right part of the chair in the back I can feel the bass pounding minus mein custom install in my Pontiac LeMond's twelve speakers and they're doing and I was Jammin everywhere and some of the music I like some of it I hate it but it was still I remember listening to it I remember him no well credence stones I love Cretans I love Fogarty he probably hates me but I love John father I think credence to I just loved it might be that the talent they they were on one of those two or three year runs our roles where they were there for their creativity was was limitless it knew no bounds and let's see I did well I don't want to sit here say who I didn't like I mean what's that Jimi Hendrix Jimi Hendrix it wasn't Jimmy had a crosstown traffic all along the watchtower but I'll tell you who I can do without no I shouldn't I'm too famous I can't say who I don't like because it gets back to them I got to take a break two.
