Has America Become a Country of Cowardice?
"Here, reading to you from Barry Weiss about what is happening in this country. The we got here because of cowardice we get out with courage. And she gives examples here. People fired. The Vermont school principal fired because she said she supports black lives, but not the organization Black Lives Matter. Black Lives Matter is a hate organization. If you support it, you support hatred in this country. Undiluted, left wing, Marxist hatred. Okay, period. Everybody knows that. No, not everybody. Most people know that. Most people know much of what the left stands for is a lie. But you can't say it. I say it. Just as I say that it is better to have natural immunity than to get a vaccine. I've never said people shouldn't get a vaccine and lied about. I was lied about in The Washington Post in the CNN play for you to see and then way of Chris Cuomo's way of distorting what I said. Lying on CNN comes so naturally that I don't even believe they're aware of the fact that they lie. And I will play it for you. This is what this is what we have entered. So she gives example another one of the Hispanic utility worker in San Diego fired because somebody said made a white supremacist hand gesture. He was in fact cracking his knuckles out of his car window. You're guilty. If one person on the left says you're guilty. In this ideology she continues Barry Weiss. The quality of opportunity is replaced with equality of outcome as a measure of fairness. If every one doesn't finish the race at the same time the course must have been defective. Thus the argument to get rid of the SAT. Or the admissions test for public schools like stuyvesant in New York or Lowell in San Francisco. In this ideology you are guilty for the sins of your fathers. In other words, you are not you. You are only a mere avatar of your race or your religion or your class.

But i was reading a couple stories retrospectives last couple of days reflections on chris webber and i've forgotten about this but obviously you guys were still whole and going into the next season in that two thousand three season. You should have been in just as good a position as ever to to challenge the lakers spurs and again. It's just that conference is just monstrous at that time. But you guys were right there. I think you had the second best record in the west that year but see web. He hurt his knee around christmas time. And danny i think he gets worse and it and blows out. Some ligaments early in the play offs was that oh two or three season is like could you feel like this is. This is where it turned right. Like two thousand. Two's the peak but oh two three a chance to still like climb that mountain once more. Maybe maybe try to break through at a time when the lakers were per usual a bit. Dysfunctional maybe a little banged up and there was there was there was a pather. Perhaps the you know the spurs and the ones who who. Come out that your. What did you see happening across that last like full year of your of that group you know i think Kobe the best it. He said If you guys beat us that we went to overtime in game seven. You win a championship. Probably win a couple in a row because the championship gives you a different type of confidence. It gives you something bed until you win it. you don't even know that it's there and the inability for us to do that. Because brought in barack miller we were playing good basketball Kion clark jimmy jackson like we had cases but without at championship about that experience without those things all of sudden.

"Bill de blasio of new york announced all public health care. Workers must get vaccinated or tested weekly. But will this kind of vaccine enforcement enough to curb the rising case count. Dr francis collins is a geneticist arguably most known for his working the team. Responsible for mapping the human genome two thousand seven. He was awarded the presidential medal of freedom by president. George w bush in two thousand nine. He received the national medal of science. By president. barack obama and that senior collins became the director of the national institutes of health. The primary agency responsible for biomedical in public health research. He's been at the helm of that agency throughout the entire pandemic and with the spread of the highly. Contagious delta variant. Tina's team h are trying to make sure the public has the most up to date information on vaccines and breakthrough infections and he joins me now. Dr collins it's it's a great pleasure to have you on the program. I thought maybe we'd start with this question about mandates. I know it's it's a policy question so slightly outside of the ambit of pure research. But i'm but i'm still curious to get your thoughts about what we know about whether institutions be they private companies or the us army or the new york city police force whether those mandates can be effective as means of boosting vaccination rates mandates were applied. They would definitely increase vaccination rates. People want to know though is their legal basis for this we'll go back to nineteen o five jacobson versus massachusetts. The supreme court said yes. There is a legal basis that was a case about smallpox vaccination which then required people to undergo that in order to protect the public health because there is a disease that was killing people. Well we have one now. That's killing people called covert nineteen so many people would say the legal basis is there. There's a wrinkle though. Chris set currently the vaccines that are being used are authorized by the fda under emergency use. And ideally they ought to be fully approved before this legal opportunity fully kicks in you know. I run a hospital. The national institutes of health is the largest research hospital in the world. I would like very much to be sure that all the people who interact with immuno-compromised patients are immunized against cova. Nineteen right now. I can't require it because this is still emergency use. But i sure as heck of exhorting people to do that now. Fortunately since they work at. Nih they're mostly agreeing. Okay so so you you bring up an issue. That is the subject of some controversy and consternation which is the emergency use authorization. Critics have said that the lack of full authorization is one of the impediments to more vaccination for two reasons one in terms of the kind of legal kit for for requirements and mandates and too because people if you swim in the water vaccine hesitancy or vaccine skepticism mill. Say well just emergency use people that fda say look we got a process in rushing. It doesn't help at all. How how should we think about this. But i think we should think about it that the likelihood of fda giving full approval to pfizer moderna and j. and j. is extremely high and pretentiously will happen in the course of the next couple of months so this is really not a good reason for people to hold off rolling up their sleeve. This is almost certainly come through. But i do want to defend the fda working twenty four seven on going through this. They don't want either to be in a circumstance where somebody would say. Well you didn't really look at all the details of the manufacturing and your thousands of pages of application. They've got to do their job. It's coming but come on folks. If this is the reason that you're still deciding not to get immunized. This is a pretty flimsy one. This is definitely the case that these vaccines have been proven and lots and lots of public data as being safe and effective already. We really don't need that full. Fda approval to accept that. I'm right now. We've got an outbreak..

Republicans i talked to were very pissed off about cheney To say that she she so become a democratic she is a democrat already even though she's one of the traditional house conservatives at just look in her voting record but no. This is the member that democrats are going to lean on that they say is under their pride ability for having a bipartisan. Investigation and republicans were saying she doesn't count effectively part of the political calculation. Here saw hell. And i don't think is the most important thing but to your point is they didn't want trump didn't want an independent commission because it would have more stature more credibility and so they turned against it. Same reason mcconnell whipped against it calling in favors. It's mccarthy went against it. They wanted to be able to attack commissioners partisan and they were going to whatever the makeup was. It seems like just being like enough. You're you're going to run against us anyway yeah. There is a difference of opinion. Chris between how. The two parties have come to view january. Six congress should do about it. Republicans have come to believe the vast majority of them including the leadership of the party. Have come to believe that the justice department should look into it. They should arrest people they should make their charges and let the justice work and everyone should move on. Democrats have a very different view of it. They believe that was a fundamentally fundamental crisis. An attack on american democracy that needs to be zeroed in on an investigated as a way to prevent anything like that from happening again to save the american experiment. I've talked many democrats and they emphasized they overemphasized and they reemphasized that part. I think they do believe that. I don't think they're blowing smoke there and that different turned out to be irreconcilable. Especially when you when you factor in the uncomfortable reality for republicans which is that it was supporters of donald trump. Who violently attacked this building in an attempt. To overturn the result of the election. To overturn joe. Biden's victory so the day off. There are many republicans who appeared very troubled by this and wanted an investigation.

Tom barrack charging him with acting as an agent of the united arab emirates as well as obstruction of justice and lying to investigators. Now we all. Of course remember special counsel robert muller was investigating russian sabotage of the two thousand sixteen election. We heard about that for years but over. The course of his investigation muller also started to look into whether lobbyists for the uae were funneling millions of dollars to the trump campaign. And now with the indictment of tom barrack that profoundly shady and we relationship between trump world and the united arab emirates is starting to make a little more sense so we know that three months before the twenty six sixteen election even happened. Donald trump junior met with an emissary for two wealthy arab princes at the trump tower. The emissary told trump junior at the time that the princes the defacto rulers of saudi arabia. And the were eager to help. His father win election as president. A few months later. I'll donald trump did win and that crown prince anyway guy. Prince mohammad bin zayed known as nbc z. Flew to new york to meet with the president-elect now as new yorker reports it is customary for foreign leaders to notify the american government when they traveled the us but nbc's e did not do so that nbc arrived at the meeting of the trump tower penthouse with an entourage about thirty people use dressed in combat boots jeans and some of his men were armed. Then on inauguration day donald trump's incoming natural security advisor. Mike flynn was texting with former business partners about a hugely controversial private-sector plan that would reportedly be funded by the gulf states including ya to bring nuclear energy to the middle east in fact. Flynn was texting about this plan. Literally ten minutes after donald trump was sworn in as he washed on the day us. Like we've got gotta deal what's going to happen seven days into his presidency. Donald trump might remember signing an executive order known as the muslim ban which well left out the uae. While including other middle eastern countries like syria yemen iraq during trump's first year in office the deputy finance chair of the republican national committee. A guy named elliott brody was helping spearhead a secret campaign to influence the white house and congress for the crown prince's of saudi arabia the uae. God that keeps popping up again and again brody was later charged with conspiring to act as a foreign agent on behalf of other interests malaysian and chinese government interests. Mr brody was a very busy man. Apparently on the day before. Donald trump doses. He pardoned brighty now. We have the indictment of tom barrett who allegedly acted to the you a in its dealings with the executive branch of government.

"Literally unhealthy. Air on the eastern seaboard. One hundred and seventy six and remember reading articles about political mobilization china around clean air. One of the points that was made in. That piece was if you're a rich businessman in shanghai. There's lots of things you can do to avoid the traffic or put in a water filter or send your kids to a private school but at the end of the day you gotta go outside and walk in the same area as everyone else in shanghai does and you gotta send your kids out to play in it and i thought about that yesterday but there's literally escape from this air like what whoever you were.

No i mean he. He seems like the last of this breed. I mean maybe. I'm sure i would think someone will come along soon but chris. Paul plays differently. Robbed than anybody else right now at that position right the game so much but he rightly landed traditional spot and the next guy like if a young point guard comes in and average is like sixteen seventeen. And you know an eight or nine chris's career numbers. I think are eighteen and nine to a lot of people. That's not good enough. You know they want your scorn. Twenty five to thirty like steph in trae in dame all these guy so he. The caller has a point. But i'm sure they'll be a few more coming down the pipe. Who play like chris paul. All right good stuff guys. We got fowler fair. We're ri- allen coming up next but first be sure to catch live editions of the odd couple with chris. Broussard and rob parker weekdays at seven.

"I i know. Things are more complicated than like. Just get them the doses but why why are they more complicated. Why aren't those doses in people's arms. So we are working as an interagency to make sure that those doses can get out of the united states were working closely with the fda to make sure those doses can safely get out of the united states and we've secure plan for how they will be distributed. Are you confident that we are going to see the curve that we've seen in this country happened in other countries. This year there is. There has been worry that we're looking this extending into twenty twenty two but we're seeing what mass vaccination does we've seen it in in israel we saw it in the uk. We've seen it in our own country. Are you confident. We're gonna see more countries followed that trajectory that sort of downward de exponential curve in the next six months. You know. I don't think we as the united states are going to be able to cover this around the world alone. I think that what we intend to do is set an extraordinary example for how we want others to work with us to provide the same kind support and donations. We as as United states want to set that example and with that example and others leveraging their resources as well. I think we can bend the curve. It's going to take some time to do this around the world. all right doctor rochelle walinsky. Who has a very very difficult and very very important job at the centers for disease control.

"About legitimacy. Like what do you see happening here. I would start by saying if you saw this happening. In other countries as we do where you have an election and there is certified by all sorts of people. And it's clearly free and fair and then a group decides to try to overturn it. That is a grave threat to democracy. In the united states and barra allies the liberal democratic oral ways in. That is what we're seeing here and it's just much harder to recognize it at home by if this precedes in the twenty twenty four election when all neutral observers say there was a free and bear result. These measures would actually allow Let state legislatures republican. Legislators overturn the result. If it is not. They're like and they are doing everything they can to make sure we're not a democracy. We are an oligarchy aristocracy. Something where a not everyone gets to vote and a white majority is preserved that point about the international conspiracy is important because when when the story does arise in some countries that you don't follow closely and you're not an expert of and they say there's an election and it was certified within these people dispute it. I i always say like well. I don't actually know what the deal is here. I'm not following this and that kind of cloud of uncertainty when you're not in it right if as an outside observer you can be a little hard to adjudicate okay. Well who actually. Who's right here right. And we've seen that abroad and we've seen it in our own history right. I mean this is. This is precisely the thing that happened. In the jim crow south it's this attack on legitimacy through means both legal and extralegal. That was the way in which the jim crow state was constructed. Absolutely right chris we had a multiracial democracy. The united states and it was taken away. And that's what people don't realize and the pattern between the attack on voting rights at the end of reconstruction and the attack on voting rights. Today is so similar it's eerie. You had the enfranchisement of black voters followed by violence fraud and intimidation to keep them from the polls. Then you have the legal disenfranchised of black voters through literacy tests poll taxes etc etc. That's how reconstruction really ended in. That's how jim crow began n what's happening. Today is very similar. You had new groups turn out in record numbers in twenty twenty two flip states like dora blue. That was followed by an attempt. To overturn the election in insurrection. They're trying to enshrine the insurrection for quote unquote legal meets. That's what the entire twenty twenty twenty twenty twenty one. St legislative sessions are about. It's trying to figure out legal ways the disenfranchise voters because the legal means on a lesson. They took the end of reconstruction. That's how history is repeating itself today and this this question about this sort of interplay between laws and legitimacy seems important here in marin and something. I've been focused on. Which is there's there's a legal regime right. You can have a legal process in which all of the all of the laws are followed. Which is what we had in the last election right. You was certified and everyone sort of did their job in the ad but that doesn't the legitimacy problem is in some ways deeper. It's not necessarily a thing that can be corrected through law. The law serves as a kind of guardrail like the attack on the legitimacy is deeper attack in some ways. You're you're absolutely right in your point about the elections of rod or well taken where those of us who are outside say well you know where there's smoke there's fire inserts to know exactly why we send in international observers why there are all these election monitors who are certified by many different countries and many different parties. The international republican institute and the national democratic institute. Typically said delegations together here once you leave the realm of any kind of agreeing truth by where you can have a people believing that our president runs a pedophile. Ring you're in great danger. Because the nothing no amount of certification no amount of legal bay air normal process will suffice. And you have a group who are determined to put that cloud on the election and then simply to push through ways of overturning. What what the world. The rest of the country would see as a free and fair election emery. You made the point about the state legislatures which are key players here. Are you heard it in the interview. Right i mean that was always the thing that trump was banking on. Its where you have some of the most like radicalized members of of the of the republican party operating. And you're seeing this now as a cause that various republican state legislatures are taking up are of course and the thing is the states. have already become. The republican party's laboratory for subverting democracy. We already don't have functioning. Democracy at the state level. In places like wisconsin and michigan because elections are already predetermined through gerrymandering. Then you put voter suppression on top of that. And the overriding goal of the republican party. And all of these states has been to subvert the democratic process over and over and over again to build a wall. While upon wa- chris right because they already insulated themselves through gerrymandering and voter suppression. Now they are adding more voter suppression. And then they are adding on top of that being able to overturn. So at every step of the process they have undermined democracy greatest feedback loop where one anti-democratic facet than entrenches. Another anti-democratic facet of the system. Amre slaughtering ari berman. That was excellent. Thank you both for making some types of. I really do appreciate it. Thank you chris.

"Mvp ballot. Because i think for guys who have those cases where it's like you don't check every box but you check a few of them in like i would rather get more of those guys on there because they're all almost equal standing right. There have different things missing. And so it's hard it's like that's going to be really tough. Four and five on the. Mvp belt is going to be tough. Where do you think that the sons would be right now without chris ball. That's a great question. It's such a great question. Like if they still have like rubio or well. This begs the question. Howard like does the eight. And oh was that. Just an aberration or a harbinger of things to come. I live with the latter. Yeah you you and you have said this before chris. You've been consistent on this to your the way you've looked at it like that was where they turned the corner like this. This trajectory was coming with or without chris. Paul and i think i think there's a basis for that. I think we've seen the chris. Paul can single handedly changed the complexion of a team. It's personality it's mindset. It's it's aggression. It's confidence like he's just. He's such a great leader employer like he absolutely has something to do with this without him. Are they fourth instead of i. And we're still talking about. What a great breakthrough season. They're having lottery to force them. The west like. Yeah that's possible. Would they be number one without chris. Paul i would say probably not but it also depends on like are who we plugging instead. Rondo i don't know the name somebody else that they could have gotten. I don't even know who else you probably don't do a deal. You probably just keep rubio right like you keep rubio. Maybe maybe you're the ones making the trade for kyle lowry in in maybe the trade deadline and kyle could have had a great impact on them. He's got that kind of ability to and a great leader but chris. Paul has something to do with this. Chris like we. Can't we pretend eight. No was the be all end. All and that chris paul had no impact certainly did trying to figure out how much of the impact like. That's the tricky calculus here and that's why it's it's hard to assess him for for mvp. And i know some people think he should be closer to the top or at the top of the ballot kendrick perkins just had a ninety second rant on twitter saying chris paul should be there and citing steve nash. As the precedent for it. I think those cases are very very different. But you know. I don't begrudge somebody percent chris. Paul should be should be considered at the top. I love perk. I wrote that story about his kinda rise in the broadcasting ranks but perks ballots. Thirty guys long at this point. It's pretty damn long. Every time i open instagram. A picture of somebody with perks saying give this man more respect for mvp. So it's while people who need more respect according to perc the best compliment hard. You can pay chris. Paul is that this year. The sons are championship level team. Without him they wouldn't be they would be in the middle of the playoff..

"He is not just dominating you pretty much any opponent that he faces but to me. Joe ellis joel is scary. In how philadelphia defense can be scary but then you look at the other side of things and you wonder will go through stretches where they may be stagnant or struggles score so i. I don't know if there's a good answer and you also have shooters now like have shooters open up the floor again for seventy sixers that we didn't really see You know the last two postseasons or whatever whatever it may be. So i don't i wouldn't necessarily say one over the other but i would say that the the lack of inside size for the nets combated with what joel embiid into the league he. He's a star drops sir headphone did. It was falling out. But i also didn't wanna touch it. Because i thought it was gonna hang up and zoom. That's fair and we will end though on that note though sir we appreciate. I will look forward to your positive comments on the defense. You and our believe. It's clicking on all cylinders right. You're acting like we're saying they're one of the top defenses in the league. You you just need to be able to look like is yon is going to go for forty nine again. No but some point. You've got to stop like a guy the you got to stop an mba. You can stop a y'all got to get it. But but just to that point against i mean milwaukee scored one hundred seventeen the nets lost by three. They gave up twenty points off. Turnovers and james harden was sitting on the bench like a dance. Where the what's that would do a moral victory. Now we come on moral victory I'm just saying you're asking is yang. Maybe not in. I don't know the when you're projecting you're asking me to project. I think we'll walk. I also think milwaukee's top like really walk us. A tremendous team philidelphia's a tremendous state. Who who knows what. Joel also in sweat like doc rivers wrong. How that changes what you see. I mean i. I don't i. I don't think there is an easy path or easy route or easy answer for any of these teams just because you know a lot is just going to depend on the chess match of what the postseason and i think. That's what we're all excited for a lot as well for all of these teams depending on health Where where does that. Where does that janas block on. Durant rank for you. That was wild. Like i don't think i've ever seen like drake is never been blocked. No no i'm a seven footer. with a wingspan. That gets you up to like eight and a half getting blocked by on that. I've never seen a block. Like that. On a kevin durant type. No no and he came out of nowhere. I was shocked. I was shocked. Yeah i mean janas. He's news a freak. He's defensive player of the year stuff right there. Get your vote ready. Howard start changing your bony. That's right you both have votes right. Both votes is about tomorrow coming tomorrow. Brain of leaves. Oh.

"The biggest factor. That stresses their defense is when they the basketball over and so if you pick out games where they've given up a ton of points or areas they struggle and i'm not saying they're a top tier defensive team but when you're talking about trying to get that bet fifteenth range that middle ground the defense it all circles back to debilitate her. The basketball were able just to to get run outs get easy. Looks and second chance points and taking care of the defence class in that has been such a heavy emphasis in my mind of when you see them able to get stops because they closed out things really well why will because they get in the half court and they have to make some timely stops. They've shown inability to do that. James harden coming. Back like i do. You can look at what you want with what you view him. As fender one he takes care of the been him having another ball handler to be able to take care of the basketball. And to they're switching defense how they have communicated and moved and how he can offend dies in the post at times He was a strong defender. Even like you look at kyrie irving so much comes down to two effort level and engagement each possession which you see more at the end of games. The activity in him gets like there's a lot of areas in. Maybe it won't pan out maybe it will but there's a lot of to me i look i think kevin durant still come back from that injury. Y- he before he got hurt was probably the best defender that they had nicholas. Claxton is finally available after unit. Coming out of health and safety protocols Didn't play the other day. I think probably ramp him up as they get towards the end of the season But steve nash called him maybe one of their best defenders. They've been missing pieces at times. That it it goes back to again if guys get healthy I think you can aspire to be that that round of middle of the pack defense that can do enough to support your offense And what they anticipate to do in terms of putting up points. But i i've said this all season To me so much of it is taken care of the basketball because there has been games that teams have had twenty extra shot fifteen extra shots however many looks and it's made a major difference at the end howard were you. Were you dazzled by the fifty one percent that portland shot in.

I don't really know what else do you possibly have to do. You missed me and evan wash the scheduling czar of the nba talking about playing the discouraging of tanking. The fact that this late in the season they have way more teams competing than ever before we talked about all the other aspects of this compressed schedule and the weird season injuries whether that's upper down the two game series. Is that something that maybe we could see a real schedule next season when things return to normal all of the logistics and all the the fun insiders stuff about the schedule and all that this year. So yeah you should go. Listen chris when you've got your double dipping aren't you. You're taking interviews that you're using for prince and your podcast. Actually not this case. I did in fact talk to twice once for the story that i did last week. And then the podcast. Completely separate thing i swear. Now i'm i'm not knocking it. I think in the next couple of weeks. You're probably gonna hear several members of utah jazz on this podcast previous interviews that i've done but check out. Howard friday podcasts yet. Another one this week do have one coming this week with a. I'll just say with a former coach. I don't wanna spacey the name just yet in case that the scheduling doesn't work out. But i got some good lined up all right. Check that out on the crossover beat howard does his own podcast every friday and we do this one on tuesdays and for this episode. How did the chris paul his mvp candidacy. I wanna talk about the lakers. And some of their problems. They're having but you. And i have had a debate over the last few podcasts about the nets and the importance i guess of continuity of team chemistry does talent win out or will the nets when we look back on this three or four months from now a look back and say well. The nets needed more time as a group together as we often do at the top of every show we bring in somebody smarter than us today. It is sarah stock. The great analyst from yes network can check her out on f s one as well sarah. Welcome to the show first of all. Thanks for having me. This is my first time on yours and howard's podcast. And i'm honored i'm humbled and i'm gonna clip that statement because mannix. I think that's the first time you have said something relatively nice to me to my face. Since i've known you disagree with that. I know entire. I'm going to have to go back and check the tape. Because i'm pretty sure i was not at this tape. No thanks. I appreciate it sir. Settled the debate here. Because maybe there's a middle ground. Maybe it's not one side or the other but howard's of the belief and howard even correct me if i'm wrong. That chemistry matters with his team. That the fact that they've only played what seven games together i'm talking about. James harden kevin durant and kyrie irving x number of minutes and that may not change that significantly over the rest of the regular season. That is going to become an issue for this team in the playoffs. I look at it on a little bit of a different or a lot of different lens. Where i think that these guys just awesome durant. It's irving it's hard and all three of these guys are on the floor..

"chris" Discussed on Chris and Rick Talk Guitars
"Hey everybody you're right so the premise is that you know in the guitar communities we all talk a lot about gear and people we all obsess about what kind of guitar you play and the tone and tone caps and the call pickups which is all cool and all importance but recently Chris posted a cool video and I'd seen the video many times before but it's Magic Sam playing what's the Song Sam's Boogie or something he's actually playing earl hooker's which is like a like a very early seventies Yuna vox neck Les Paul Copy just like that was before the Japanese even dialed in really good copy so just kind of a probably plywood yeah and it's just this funky happy with a bolt on neck but he is just tearing it up and it sounds amazing again it was just a prime example of how a you know depending on the player you can put almost anything in their hands and it's going to sound good you know it doesn't you know and again we love good gear and quality gear I love it I love a good a good guitar part of the game but it's also cool to just think about what you can do with a a lesser lesser instrument or something in the hands of the right person you know it sounds great we posted a link to that video exam just for reference it's watching that video first of all Magic Sam is fucking awesome and I mean he's pure rock and roll and you watch this particular video too and you can see how responsible he was for so much Rock and Roll Oh yeah after I mean you just listen to what he's playing and you're like Oh the Jimmy Page Jeff back all these people and they were keeping it started with this dude he was like like I said I just think of Magic Sam is pure rock and roll just like he is that as almost like chuck various pure rock and roll yeah so videos just really great his band is great you can see the drummer has a wallet on his look back that the ring I love that I mean his like the way he's you know the syncopated l. he has in the fact that it's like his boogie just so fucking bad it's every once in a while I have to go find that video yeah I'm just remind myself why I love the guitar so much going back to what you're saying is like the saying it's the guitar player the guitar is very true in we all do well to remember that but like everything else in life it's it's kind of nuanced do you know what I mean it's like sure yes it is but I mean you can it's all about uh being inspired inspired and getting getting getting sounds that make you inspire to make you play and that saying is probably less valuable oh to people starting out because when you first start out you need any sort of edge that you can get you know what I mean I worked in Qatar shop and I got this a lot someone comes in and like holiday I want to buy a guitar for my daughter but I'm not sure if she's going to stick with it so I just WanNa buy cheapest thing I can and it's like I guarantee you she won't stick with it if you buy the cheapest thing you can be done it's going to be a piece of shit that's true you need an edge to get your roots in and like fall in love with the instrument to where you can develop a sound that becomes the player not the guitar yeah so the player and have to get tar is way better I just someone who has developed a style his able to you know I think anyways I think once you have some sort of style about your playing then you can get on any guitar you want and you can get that sound out of it but when you're just starting out the gear does matter more I think I think I think you're making a good point and I think the Abia sure to to any of these topics we come up with his lake it's this is not the rule and it's not the you know it's not to say that every cheap guitar is going to be playable you know some art some will not stay in tune some pickups may sound totally shitty but there are instruments like this bolt on copy Les Paul that are playable and in the hands of a person like Magic Sam he can just make it sound gray but I think you're right yeah I mean I think when you're younger and just starting out yeah you want to at least have an instrument that stays in tune and sounds okay if you're gonNA plug it in or if it's an acoustic if it plays tune and stuff sure but even that like I'm thinking of like a lot of old blues people or punk musicians that didn't have any money or Iraq decisions enemy and the you know the best thing they could afford was I'm thinking of like Johnny Ramone man he bought that cheap I mean part of it was he wanted an iconic guitar that was his own but we're starting out it was they were getting a stir in New York City so Lou Reed came down to watch them and he was really impressed with the band and he went up to Johnny after the show and said you guys are great but you have to get rid of that guitar and John Enrollments like fucking Mike said he went onto make his icon Dr in the movie it might get loud there's that scene where the edge and page and Jack Wider sitting around and they're talking about guitars and Jackie Eh but no there's there's so much truth to that and yes there's like very talented people who have been able to overcome really crappy guitars and get great sounds because have the drive but for your average person I'm saying like and I'm not talking about you know you need a Les Paul Custom now start out with I think we're more talking about obsessing over the gear this is another that I have experienced where I worked in a guitar shop and there's somebody come in real nice guy has is very well to do doesn't have it has a lot of right so he comes in and he picked classic telecaster like sixties telecasters this is it I want this and he takes it he buys it he comes back later and says no this isn't working for me so gets like a Les Paul Junior or something and he comes back and forth and at some point you've got to stop them and you got to say you know it's not the guitar pick any one of those guitars right and just spend some time with exile just learn the guitar and it's GonNa work for you you know people talk about tone and where it comes from and no one of the things I heard a lot is that it comes from your fingers in your hands it comes from the player and think of a lot of that is true and this kind of ties into what we're talking about like Magic Sam on that Les Paul Copy He is just like you know his fingers and him and how he's playing that instrument makes it sound so cool and that's what I totally fascinated by in terms of the individuality of players and also just applying it to like giving somebody guitar to play and being able to make some thing happened on that thing or instrument by that you know any instrument really and yeah I mean like Johnny Ramone is a great example what other examples can you come up with an example like a broad example of that that sentiment that I experienced personally was back in the eighty s when I was playing in a band with some friends it was kind of like a punk rock doc like just a Shitty punk rock man having a lot of fun and we had the opportunity to open for the cons in nineteen eighty eight or eighty nine in Ann Arbor Michigan again it's very exciting for us because we just like I said just a little local punk rock pop band and At the time we had I mean I had shitty equipment like held together with Duct Tape crappy stratocaster and our drum kit was falling apart and we got this shows great opportunity one of the catches was to play the show the touring they came over on a plane there on a shoestring they have no gear so we can open for them but they have to use our gear so we're like absolutely that's a fucking Megan's that's so let me come got up there and they sounded fucking amazing I was like night and day there's no way that are shitty gear that I'm always complaining about that was like you don't want to fuck and get your shit together play better because you can do that on that shit that you have so yeah that's a great point man and that's that's a cool experience late is just seeing other people play you know having one set of gear and then two separate bands play that gear it's.

"Hello. This is Chris Taketaro. That's Chris over there. Hello. I'm Rick today. Not unlike other days, we're going to talk about pet peeves. Oh, yeah. I hear a countdown. That this whole this whole series isn't just a string of pet peeves. Yeah. Let's it's an excuse for us to air our pet peeves king rant about our pet. Peeves, regardless of who really wants to know or not so to get the ball rolling. I know Chris has a long list of pet peeves that he stored away in that little noggin. What do you what do you got? Well, I just like start with a disclaimer that sending these pet peeves kind of moral reflection of our shortcomings than the things that were ranting. To get inside of these pet peeves and say, why does this? Let's. On vail. Some some fascinating things might not just old guys yelling at clouds, but I'm going to give it a whirl. You are to get off by saying clip onto Nur's. Oh, yes. I don't mind clip on tuners. Okay. There is a mazing. If you think about them, though, because this technology compare the cheapest clip on tuner that you can buy to the old desktop tuners right of your and they're more accurate. They're more lightweight bureau parts, but I don't like them. And let's figure out why I don't like let's unpack this Chris unpack it and see what it's underneath the dark underbelly of this pet peeve. I think what it is partially is that the start to me is holds the essence of guitar the classic telly heads stock. The classic Stratocaster the classic Gibson. Had stocked things of beauty for someone s and you stick this cheap. Casio like junk on top of it. And it's just kind of distracting more than anything. I'm not going to argue for MoMA. That they are helpful that they are isn't convenient. But. Every all have our pet peeves. I okay, I accept that. When I got my mandolin, and I was learning the mandolin it came with a free clip on tuner while I was learning the tuning of that instrument. I clicked that on there. You know, it was kind of a quick visual aid, great once I went, and how to tune the instrument took it off God it, and I use the old ears or a phone or any other kind of two hundred out of there. So I know why people use them super convenient easy access. You can see them instantly. I don't like them. I don't sorry. I share your view on the on the clip ons for for what reasons you cited. So I mean, you're preaching to the choir here, man. Yeah. It's kind of funky. And again like you say maybe like around the house. It's kind of neat to have training wheels and stuff like that. But when you're at a live show, it is kind of weird to see like, but I see them all over the place. Now, they got that clip on tuner on the head stock on that all these players. Referred to as the fanny pack of. Assessories and some people like took issue with I'm fine with that issue. But I'm like, yeah. It's just kind of a novelty item. I like again, go on YouTube live concerts of people use them. I know more power to you continue to use them and continue to Seve move it inside. And I see them on a classic. It's almost like you have like a pre-war Martin. And you know, and you drill any like one of those pre-empts in inside that Qatar. So you have Priore Martin with a battery rights. I don't know. I think people rely in general on tuners far more than they really need to 'cause everybody likes to have instant visualization on onstage. Your people are watching you wanna quick about it in the stuff. But if you never interact with your instrument as far as brave in tune, I think, I don't know. I think you'll you'll have a better era. If if you're able to do that, and you make yourself do that more often and other thing to point out is even the most accurate tuner if you rely on that for completely tune your Qatar Qatar might not be as in tune as you think it is. Because for me my guitar. I mean, sometimes I have to flatten the G string to get it to sound into. And I don't care what my two hundred says it's my ears.
