Celebrating Indigenous filmmakers at TIFF
"For people who aren't familiar with Thomas King's book the inconvenient Indian, how do you describe it? It's a difficult book to describe because Thomas covers so much ground but really it's the history of colonization in North America but told through his lens so he uses humor I. It's funny. He says to me he always disarms people with his humor, and then he pulls out the knife and. I really feel that that expresses the book in the best way because there can be a moment where you're just running along listening to historian. He's a fantastic storyteller, and then you're laughing and next thing you know it's a Gut Punch and I feel that capture the spirit of indigenous people we go through a lot of things and it can be really tough but we always have the ability to laugh at it and we have such a good sense of. Humor despite some of the atrocities we end up living in our lives and I feel like, Thomas Really encapsulates Ivan this book and do you remember when you first picked up the book and read it and you know what impact it had on you I do I read it around the time it first came out and it was not long after that that I ended up going to standing rock to document the occupation against the Dakota access pipeline there and I'd never thought about making the book into a film but when I was in standing rock, I saw a lot of those ideas that are in Thomas's. Enacted on the ground in the front lines and when I came back from standing rock. I guess that was when I really started to think about making it into a film and the book the inconvenient Indian it's pretty genre defying. It's you know unconventional in so many ways it blends history and humor and personal narrative from Thomas Kings perspective. How did you approach adapting all of those things from the book to the Big Screen? Yeah, it was actually very intimidating in the beginning when Jesse, Wendy and Stuart Henderson the producers of the film when they approached me to adopt the book. My initial reaction was I'm not a historian I'm not an academic I can't do this, and then on the publisher sent me an illustrated version of the book and those illustrations spanned everything from Thomas? King's own photographs in his travels to old posters from the original land settlement posters when candidate was trying to entice settlers to come here and occupy lands and I think that got me really thinking about the history that. Media has played in the misrepresentation of Dennis peoples in this country. One of my favorite moments in the film is a hunting scene, and early in the film, You bring in a clip from the nineteen twenty, two movie nuke of the North, and that movie represents the Innuendo as primitive but you show us a contemporary hunting scene So you kind of flip the script and Wayne. Can You? Can you tell us why? Was that important to show contemporary hunting nook of the north is an interesting film because when that was being recorded, it was considered one of the first feature documentaries and and it was recorded from Robert Flaherty who was asking people to hunt with spears, and when at the time they were actually hunting with rifles and so he was actually setting them back in time and this is where I think this. This perpetuates the stereotype that. People are stuck in the past where this nineteenth century representation of a dead Indiana's I use those words meaning the Thomas. King words from his book dead Indian or we're stuck with leathers and feathers, and we're a stereotypical romanticized version of ourselves but we exist in the now and many of our cultural practices and traditions are existing with us right now

At a recent public hearing county commissioner can't Connolly said when a plant is shutdown, it's not just jobs that are lost by lose. Fifty percent of the taxes is just as simple. Connolly says it doesn't have to be like this coal plants in Wyoming could stick around if utilities just considered retrofitting them to capture the carbon they emit we will change how goal America. There's no doubt about it we'll get. The idea a coal plant would be retrofitted with new tack.

It Stars Tom Holland and Robert Pattinson, and here's a taste in this clip. A young boy has just watched his father pulverized two guys after they made lewd comments about the father's wife, the son's mother. Afterward the father gives his son some advice. You remember what I told you. On. The buzzer gave you. That's what I mean. got. To. Sir. Good sons of bitches out there. One hundred. These that many. Cannonball. In, both the movie and the novel the characters in the devil all the time are driven to extremes whether their fathers and sons, serial killers or preachers. The story begins in the small town of knock him stiff a real place in southern Ohio where Donald Ray pollock grew up. He didn't become a writer until he put in over thirty years at the local paper mill and got sober. But. Once he did start writing. He was noticed quickly receiving both awards and critical. Acclaim. Terry, gross spoke to Donald Ray pollock in twenty eleven when the devil, all the time was first published. Donald, Ray pollock welcome to fresh air. I'd like to start with reading from your new book, the Devil, all the time It's about the second paragraph from the prologue. So would you just set it up for us? What we have here is A young boy's name is Arvin Eugene Russell and he's following behind his father Willard and there and place called knock him stiff and they're going to Willard's prayer logging as a log in the woods where he Wants to communicate with God and So this is where they are. You know early in the morning and their. have finally reached this log. Willard eased himself down on the high side of the law and motion for his son to kneel beside him in the dead soggy leaves unless he had whiskey running through his veins Willard came to the clearing every morning and evening talk to God. Arvin didn't know which was worse the drinking or the praying. As far back, as he could remember, it seemed that his father had faulted devil all the time. Arvin little with the damp pulled his Co. tighter. He wished he were still in bed even school with always miseries was better than this but it was a Saturday and there was no way to get around it. Through the mostly bare trees beyond the cross Arvin could see whisper smoke rising from a few chimneys, half a mile away four hundred or so people lived in, knock him stiff in nineteen, fifty seven nearly all of them connected by blood through one godforsaken clam or another be it lust were necessity or just plain ignorance along with the tar paper shacks and Cinder Block houses the Holler included two general stores and a Church of Christ in Christian Union and joint known throughout the township as the bullpen. Three days before he'd come home with another black I I, don't condone no fighting just for the hell of it but sometimes, you're just too easy going Willard told him that evening then boys might be bigger than you. But the next time one of them starts his stuff, I want you to finish it. Willard was standing on the porch changing out of his work clothes. He handed Arvin Brown pants stiff with dried blood and Greece. He worked in a slaughterhouse in Greenfield and that day sixteen hundred homes had been butchered a new record for RJ Carol meat-packing. Those boy didn't know yet what he wanted to do when he grew up he was pretty sure he didn't WanNa kill pigs for eleven. Let's Donald Ray pollock reading from his new novel, the Devil, all the time. You know in the reading that you did the father tells the sun that the next time. So many beats him up the sun has to fight back and that seems to be. A recurring theme like in the opening story of your collection of short stories, the collections called knock him stiff. The opening sentence reads my father showed me how to hurt a man one August night at the torch in when I was seven years old it was the only thing he was ever any good at. You certainly seem interested in the idea of a father. Kind of indoctrinating a sun on the need to fight back and then egging on to do it even when it's inappropriate. so was is this a story that played out in your life? Well, not so much in my life I. Mean as far as I don't my dad really didn't push me to fight or anything like that. But you know when I was growing up my father and I had a very Uneasy relationship. You've got to understand my dad was born in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty he's still alive. You know he's eighty years old and he's still kicking but He was born in. Nineteen thirty grew up in the depression I went to the eighth grade. He was working on the railroad by the time he was sixteen, and then he was in the navy. And, my dad is a very tough. Hard. man Stra very strong man. As and in contrast to that, my mother is very shy kind. Small Bone woman. and. Either fortunately or unfortunately for me, I took after my mother and I believe. When I was a kid, my dad was. Maybe disappointed for not taking after him more. So. You know that's where I guess part of that comes from it and part of it also comes from. Lived in stiff. That's where I grew up and I saw a lot of other fathers who were you know drinkers and hell raisers and they didn't treat their families very well You know maybe they went and worked for a while and. I got enough money to go on another band or whatever, and pretty much left the family to take care of themselves. So, yeah father's have a pretty rough time and my work I just. It's just. You know I'm a father. You know I have a daughter WHO's I'm thirty years old now and I have always felt that I. Wasn't. As good as I could have been. Her mother and I were divorced when she was very young she was like a year old and and I wasn't around that much and. That's probably the best explanation. I can give for why treat father's like I do my work. Were you bullied in school. You said you, you took after your mother who wouldn't hurt a fly. So and if you were bullied, would you fight back? Did you know how to actually I wasn't bullied in school I? Never really had any problems with that and yeah, I. Mean a would fight back if I had to but. That situation you know didn't come about very much probably you know just. No more than any other normal kid you know might face that sort of thing. But. Yeah. I mean I wasn't really interested in Working on cars or farm or anything like that was more of A. I won't call myself a bookworm because we really didn't have that many books but you know I like to read and watch old movies and drawl and stuff like that and My Dad. Just you know he's a very practical man I mean, even today you know his idea of success is. Owning your own farm, starting your own business or something like that and I know that he probably looks on what I'm doing now is. A pretty useless way to spend your life trying to write books. Would you describe what the town of knock him stiff was like when you were growing up well, when I was growing up there it was. You know relocated for us. Ok we'll knock him stiff. is about thirteen miles west of chillicothe Theo, which is you know southern Ohio. It was its own little place. You know there wasn't much else around there but it was a community There were three small general stores and a bar and a church, and probably four hundred, fifty, five, hundred people now I probably was related to. At least half those people. So did you find this nurturing being in a town where half the people in it were related to you or incredibly claustrophobic? I think when I was a kid when I was a kid I was claustrophobic for me. You know I was one of those kids I was always unsatisfied I always wanted to be. Else and somewhere else. And so from a very early age. You know I was thinking about escaping from the hauler. I just Thought that I'd rather be somewhere else are somewhere else. But where you are as in Chile coffee which is. PHILADELPHIA, which is about thirteen miles away like you got out but you didn't go very far. I, really didn't get out I mean that's the weird contradiction of that whole thing you know i. Wanted to escape and them what I finally got my chance or whatever I. I chose to stay I'm out at knock stiff at least once a week even today Ladder parents go to visit. My parents are still alive. You know I have a brother and two sisters and they all live fairly close to there and So I. Think though as far as escape goes what happened with me was I quit high school when I was seventeen. And I went to work in a meat packing plant much like Weller work, Dan? And then when I was eighteen I moved to Florida you know that was going to be I was going to get away that you know by moving to Florida and I was down are working a job in a nursery and I wasn't making much money or anything only been there a few months my dad called and said. Hey, I can get you a job at the paper mail if you come back up here so. I chose to come back. You know the paper Mills Calling it was union job and great benefits and. And I knew you know for a high school dropout that was probably going to be the best job I. Ever got. You had that job for. How many years did you work at the paper mill? I? was there thirty two years and you didn't start writing till you were around fifty or is that is fifth well I'm fifty six now and I started writing when I was forty five. Okay. So how come it took so long did you know? When you weren't writing did you know that you had that in you? Well. You know I'd always been a big reader as I said and I love books. And I think maybe in the back of my mind, you know always thought writing would be a great way to get by in the world and you know, of course, I was very naive about it. The principal reasons for me you know as far as being a writer were one, you were your own boss. To you could do it anywhere. And three, you made lots of money. Wasn't until actually began writing it. I found out. That was a real true. But I. Think you know Sorta like maybe a fantasy that? It was in the back of my mind for a long time. I had a problem with drinking and for a number of years and you know it was one of those fantasies that when you got half loaded and You started daydreaming or whatever it was. One of those things that you thought about right thought about. But it wasn't really. You know I went to school when I was in my thirties I went to college I went to Ohio University and I ended up with a degree in English and You. Know even while I was there though I wasn't thinking about being a writer I never took any writing workshops or anything like that. But then finally when I was forty five my dad retired from the paper mill. And there was just something about watching him retire and go home. and. You know that was you know pretty much the end of his career and it really. Bothered me and I. Just. decided. I had to try something else you know. To some other way to. Spend the rest of my life. So. When you decided, you wanted to learn how to write what did that mean? Any. Writers or anything in for a while I just sort of scribbled and struggled. And then I'd read an interview with a writer and I can't recall her name now or no it was a lady. But she talked about typing out other people's stories as a means of maybe getting closer to them or just learn how to put a story together. and. So I started doing that. Who did you type out? I typed out a lot of different stories I. I was typing out a story at least once a week and that went on for about a year and a half. So John. cheever hemingway. Flannery. O'Connor Richard. Yates Dennis Johnson the you know the list just goes on and on if it was a story that I really liked and it wasn't. Long I, type it out, and then I carry it around with me for a week and you look at over and you know jot notes on stuff like that, and then I'd throw it away and do another one. Typing a story out, just was a much better way for me to see how you know person puts dial together or you know. Moose from one scene to the next that sort of thing. Was it hard for you to find your subject matter as a writer? Well when I first started. Trying to learn how to write. As. I said like maybe I would copy out John cheever story. So then I would try to write my own story about some East Coast suburbanite having unfair. Something like that or maybe I'd write about a re Rita Andrei debut story, and then I'd write about a Catholic priest. and. So I did that for maybe two years or so and it just wasn't working at all for me. and. Then filing maybe at about two and a half years, I wrote a story that's included in the book. Knock him stiff called back teen. And it's a very short story. and. It's about these two losers sitting in a donut shop. And that was the first thing that I had. Written that I thought wasn't too bad. And so then I increasingly started focusing on you know the people that I knew about instead of nurses, lawyers, that sort of thing that I had absolutely no idea. How to write about There's a passage in your new novel that's about a bus driver and the bus drivers father had gotten a certificate from the railroad for not missing a single day of work in twenty years and bus drivers. Mother always held this up as like what you could do. If you really you know were strive and tried to accomplish something when the bus drivers father died the bus driver hope that that certificate would be buried with his father's. We didn't have to look at it anymore, but instead his mother just like. Put It on the wall, display it in the living room. And then the bus driver thinks it wore on you after a while other people's accomplishments. I love that sentence did you ever feel that way I mean he kochman here seems. So relatively small like a good attendance record and not to knock that. But for that to be like, you know the zenith of somebody's life is. You. but did you feel that way that a war on you? Other People's accomplishments? I don't think that I paid so much attention to other people's. Successes or whatever. But I, know that I was aware you know by the time. I was thirty two or so and I've been working at the mail for about fourteen years. And I knew that all the guys that I had come in with you got hired about the same time as mayor guys even much later than that. You know they own their own home. Maybe. They owned a boat and they had two or three vehicles and they were married and had kids and on and on and on. You know in contrast to them. I've been divorced twice. I'd filed bankruptcy when I got sober I was living in this little very small apartment above this garage. Of. Motel Room and I've been living there for about. Four or five years. I owned a black and white TV that my sister had given me and I had this seventy six chevy that had the whole side of smashed in and that was it. You know for fourteen years of working there. That's what I had. And so you know there was that sense I guess of me just being a failure. Wasn't really that I wasn't jealous of those people or anything like that. I, mean I had enough sense to know that you know where I ended up was my own fault. But there was always that that idea in back of my head that. I could have done more you know I could maybe went to college or something you know. I'm sure you know if I'd wanted to go to school when I was eighteen, my dad would try to help me. and. That's not the route that I chose though how has your life changed? Now as a published writer, you have a collection of short stories. You have a new novel you got a thirty five thousand dollars cash prize, the pen, Robert Bingham Award. So, what's different about your life? well, I have a lot more time to just set on the porch and. Smoke and daydream. Think it's a legitimate. Yeah well, at least that's what I tell my wife. But my life hasn't really changed that much I. Mean I get a lot more emails. Now you know that sort of thing, but you know I still live in the same house I still pretty much. You know my daily routine is. I really can't say that it's changed that much. It's a good life and I'm thrilled that you know I've got a publisher and. You know had at least a little bit of success.

NASA wants to start a gold rush in space, so it’s putting a bounty on moon dirt
"To mine the moon and then sell lunar rocks and dirt to the space agency. For more. We turn to the KCBS Ring Central news Line and talk to CBS News Space consultant Bill Harwood. You'll soil and rock collection is this part of NASA's bigger plans to set up camp on the moon? Well, yes and no, it's it's really more of a proof of concept and an effort, you know, enticed companies to mind the moon, so to speak. What they're trying to do is set up a mechanism by which Company could go to the moon. They do some exploration find something interesting, and then NASA would buy it from them. So, so it is a mechanism by which a private company could then Tell something to the government that the government might want NASA views. This is a first step to setting up I don't know what to call it, not a lunar economy, but You know, private sector operation in space. You know, the outer space Treaty says no nation can claim a NASCAR nautical body. You can't go to the moon and say this is this belongs to me. Just like you can. You can own an ocean on the earth. You can pull fish out, right? And the same thing would apply to the moon. If you go look for ice, which is something that would help astronauts down the road kind of live off the land. Um, if you have a mechanism by which which companies could do some of the work for Dennis and then get paid for it is a private venture. That's the sort of thing this is looking to encourage. This sounds like a really big shift for NASA story is, if you think about it in the in the half century that people have been exploring space has never been Ah, framework by which you could do business in space. You know, everybody talks about what it costs. No fun to space program or whatever, but all that money is really spent between companies here on the ground. I think this is an attempt anyway, to encourage the private sector to think Maura about what they condemn in space and how they can make money doing it than the money in this case is very monitors between 15 and $25,000. For Little less than a pound of rocker soil. The companies would have to show exactly where it's located in market and photographic proof. They've got it in the nest. At some point down the road would go retrieve it and bring it back to Earth. So I think it's a little bit far out there right now, But it's a It's a step in that direction. And that's what mass is hoping to do with their Artemus Moon program, which is come up with a sustainable architecture for long term exploration. Interesting too, that the bidding as I understand it will be open. Not only just to U. S companies, but international ones as well. Yeah, that's right. Uh, certainly anybody can bid on this massive agrees to it. They pay you 10% up front. More when you prove you've actually done it, And then the final 10% when you get it when they get it back to earth, and look at it, Um again. I think this is ah. Pretty far out there in terms of what you or I would think of it as a business opportunity, considering what it would cost the company to get to the moon in the first place. I think it's more about setting up a framework by which you can do business in space. That's that's to go here. Always great to talk to you. That is CBS News Space consultant Bill Harwood. Sox
One Thing all Entrepreneurs Must Do Well to Succeed

Thing because different people have different levels of complexity with this, but it is absolutely one of the hardest phase you know even even people like Accountants have a hard time with us.

Novak Djokovic disqualified from US Open 2020
"Novak Djokovic James was disqualified from the US Open which is great for Dennis. Chef of all by the way, he was going to win we all know that but he's disqualified. Basically between points he's wandering. I guess kind of in the middle of the court and he kinda lobs the ball at the line judge the way you might if a ballboy was looking and you lob it at them, he probably hit a little harder but the line judge wasn't looking because you this just in you don't throw the tennis ball at the line. And she looked like she took it in the throat. And went down. She could not continue and because of that, he was disqualified from the US Open for that. You could see right away it was totally accidental. But what did you think of the whole thing should have been disqualified? Well if you read the rule. Right, if you're the which they've been showing for frigging every ten minutes for since it happened. Okay. It's it's pretty clear. What he did would would be would be breaking that rule. Okay it's kind of like. I don't have it in front of me but you may be able to pull up you may not, but it's kind of like. You know you're in charge of your own stick right in hockey, and if you're still goes up and you clip a guy in the forehead unintentionally, right? You're going to get penalized. Okay. And that rule is you have to be in control of your own stick whether it's accidental or not. If if you if you hit a guy, it's high sticking tie sticking and maybe more if you cut the. I think this rule in tennis reads the same way I didn't think it rose to the level of being kicked out. Did you. Know I didn't ask for a couple of reasons. One is he wasn't trying to do that. It's not as lined up here. He's got his sights and drilled the ball. At the line judge, make sure you understand here there's not a ballboy here he hit a line judge right Yup ballboy would probably be different right for the obvious reasons the ball boy would be ready there have to be ready at all times to. Give balls, and whereas the line judge might just be sort refocusing and you know they can take rest for a moment they may not be looking at the player. And it was a line drive. Okay, you came off his racket. Well it didn't bounce. It didn't bounce. He didn't lob it up in the Air Steve He. Say Line drive don't be confused. It was like one hundred miles an hour buddy. He's sort of pissed too. took the ball whacked it and it and it hit her on the fly in the throat. Wasn't intentional not at all. So when you see that, I'm like come on the guy, the guy didn't mean it. You know. So. That's you know that's a bit of a drag their. Okay. But back to the hockey roll like there's lots of penalties where you don't mean it. and it happens well, the broadcasters at the time they they actually had the they basically could hear a bit of the conversation. Between the officials and Jovic and one of the announcers said he believes that they had said part of the decision to have him disqualified was because the line judge could not continue right and. I honestly looked at that and maybe I I don't I don't want to be taken emails and an angry calls and things like that but it's a tennis ball. Am I look at the speed of that tennis ball? That's not exactly one where I'll be sending a card praying that she survives like that's that did not look like it hit particularly hard. That's just me eyeballing and give an opinion. But. We shall see. I agree she could've continued. If I had to you know I looked at her I I don't think he was faking I think she was surprised. But it looked. Real God her her her corner would come screaming but it looked a little over the top. Okay. Role Lawyers Up. Yeah. I don't know

"Yeah, correct it could It could take until on next year where you really start to see him more into rotation But I think there's other real chances to some high leverage innings pretty quickly here. Based on how good stuff is, of course, to get past pretty good testing the dodgers seeing that he gets into one of these games coming They have the dodgers again coming up so We'll find out pretty quickly whether he's ready for the spotlight but everything that they've gone from camp and training side, and you look back to last year the teachers game the strike out guy in Philadel- was also making me stay tonight. that's one of the best prospects, not the best prospect in baseball He seems to thrive in these. Be Spotlights and he's he's got personality that's really Really you know electric and magnetic for a lot of people. So they think he's he's pretty well equipped to handle the high leverage innings. It's something like this year. Dennis and we've talked a lot about on base percentage quality of at Bats right we've talked about a lot of that sort of thing padres may sneaking up on people number one in the big leagues. Now through eleven games with seventeen stolen bases, a lot of teams will tell you they don't care about stolen bases. They don't care about their runners, baserunners stealing them. They don't care about protecting them I wonder what you make of the padres now seventeen stolen bases thus far on the season. I. Guess the numbers oil surprising. What's not surprising to you're being this aggressive just because that's kind of been eighty dollars more more I guess more of an old school philosophy than. some general managers. You know he he wants guys who go deep deepen ballgames starters and he wants to put pressure on the opposing defense. So you know now they have, they have the ethics do that and. They've been drilling on that throughout camp, and now they're putting emotion I think you know load remains to be seen is whether they can keep this pace up for the rest of the season obviously I think they they shown they have the power it. Doesn't really matter if they're stealing two or three days of the game I mean, they look guys in you know. The one ball. So I don't expect a space to keep up, but I can be pretty aggressive at least in taking action on expedient it even if it isn't a stolen day. Dennis the catchers the two catchers here have exactly the same amount of at bats. One has one more hit than the other and I think everybody knows that the numbers are two for one one for the other including the game winning RBI. Last night is to your understanding here how is j Tingler deciding day in day out which captured a role with out there on the mound or out there behind the plate? Number One because he can switch it although noted, there hasn't been hitting much hitting going on Guy and then some guys. Might just feel more comfortable pairing carrying hedges with or you know feeling like he's also made some improvements on the defensive side whether that's maybe..

Birth was there when no Internet no distractions you know Gilbert a dead time frank. Music was everything to you. You got the albums you looked you read absoulutely immersed liner notes if you could have got porn on the Internet phone. We're out of there.

How can how can millions of people? Like Mick Jagger. Andy Martin odd. Yeah and I heard you talking about your favorite singers and this this this connects to something. We've talked about a lot. Gilbert I you talking about favorite singers and you said as much as you admired somebody like Sinatra. You don't want to hear Sinatra attempting a rock song or or even a pop song. Because he wasn't he wasn't it wasn't a suited for it and it brings to mind of course Gilbert our favorites Sinatra's cover of Mrs Robinson. Yeah you coo Coo Birds Mrs Robinson reminded me of when you were talking about your favorite singers about McCartney stevie wonder Elvis everyone you'd see like not even with music like with. Can you see like Bob? Hope do one of his specials any dress up like a hippie. In one part you go. Ooh He don't don't to hurt. It was quite authentic striving out of their lanes. Yeah well trying to make a buck. Yeah here's here's a good question from a listener for you. Dennis from Ray Garton. Can Dennis tell us the one big negative thing about being a Rockstar that nobody warns you about advance probably wreck contracts contracts Be Be careful what you sign when you're young you know you'll sign anything because you want the opportunity and those things always come back the cause havoc in your life. So that's the most important thing the rest of it. When I was in the heyday of all that stuff it would be pretty tough. The fine any real negative except for the fact that you had to constantly in motion and you had to be like a comedian. You've gotta be when you walk out there. You know this Gilbert. Nobody gives a shit. If you don't feel good they don't care what's going on you're there you know to please an audience and that starts out joyous but after a while its job it really is job. No the dream is any dream is always better than the reality of the dreams I think show business became a job for all of us a long time ago. Y'All absolutely I think it's fair to say well it's like I love when people say to me out. What are you doing times when you don't WanNa be funny and you don't WanNa tell and I think well they're you know if you work in a grocery store and you don't feel like working in the grocery store you still have to go there? That's right and we're lucky though. I mean look what we're doing on people assign far too much credibility and love to us. Who Do this thing? They don't know us. I wrote an album in seventy seven called the grand illusion which dealt with the same problem right told the audience clearly. Don't be fooled by the radio. Tv magazines we create an illusion to divert people so they can be entertained and you know help them not be so like right now. Perfect example the universe is not. They don't get it. I doesn't care about us. Universe doesn't it's about repeat wash and replenish change and we don't want to think about that and so they see it. Let's go see Gilbert tonight. He'll make us left. Let's go see Dennis today. He's going to sing a song and we'll feel better. That's what we do and I used to think it was frivolous bullshit but now that my audience is in their sixties. They'll tell me just how much what I did for. A living made a difference in their life and I think how did that happen? I was just trying to beat. Aerosmith within Queens. Yeah I had people come up to me and say you know when my brother or my mother was dying. We would listen to our recordings of your comedy bits. And it's like you go. Oh my God I thought I'm doing meaningless. Shift someone's dying. They put on the Aristocrats Gilbert. Does that had to set your mind? What they said how much it meant to them Gilbert.

Thank god. But this would test that theorem about don't cry for things to can't cry for such a. Amazing building in the middle of. An amazing city.

Whereas in a lot of other countries, you know, if you're just if you're one of the best, and, you know, you're you're so far above because of you know, you're not producing so many greats out of.

I wasn't afraid to do that. And and to put it all out there and to to leave it all out there because when I walked off the court. I was done always pretty good about that. I would know. But I didn't want to look back and say, jeez. If I'd have done this. You know, I could have you know, maybe I could have one I never felt that way. If I didn't figure it out there. I wasn't going to figure it out five minutes later. Yeah. I ran into John Lloyd last week in in Florida. He was with the rob Schneider where we're doing together. John light, lovely cat.

She she in poncho had a special relationship, you know, from from way back in the day, and I was fifteen and Pancho came through Saint Louis to play into some marketing for an exhibition only, and my mom took me over to to see him. And and she wanted to say Hello. So they got talking, and and I was standing with with my mom, and my grandma and looking at all and she looks up to punch us. He goes, you know, my son. Here's got some talent. You know, he's pretty good. You know, now, I'm thinking, oh my God. How how many times has Pancho Segura heard that, you know? But she heard it from Gloria Thompson, you know, that, you know, from back in, you know, the the days of special days when they were growing up in new each other, so well and all that. So she said she said, I'd like for you know, to try to get him to a certain point of of, you know, seeing what he can do in Pancho said send him out to me.

"You got there early as you needed to get there to hit that thing. Right. Yeah. He was he, and I say this respectfully and in in some ways harmful, you know, he was tough. And but you know, I knew that if I walked off of there, and he was even a bit satisfied. Then I must've done something. Right. But the way he trained me. And and you know, I was never in the gym was was always on the court. And I was on a track are doing something, you know, outside. I was never inside doing it. But I remember days Dennis when when I'd start jumping rope. And and I you know, I'll Pat myself on the back yard was pretty darn good at it. And and and I'd be jumping in. And I said how much today Paul? Five minutes, and and he'd be walking around, and and you know, kind of going through his own thing and talking to you. So now, why don't you do, you know, why don't you try to get the ten or fifteen away, and we just keep going and just keep going, and he'd be trying to distract me. You know? So that if I'd miss I have to start over, you know. And so, you know, now, I'm trying to listen to him talk. And I'm trying to pick up my face. So he was teaching me two things at once is teaching me, my footwork, and he was teaching me concentration all at the same time without me, even knowing it, you know, so that to me that was the best part of by family upbringing of playing this game and getting into it was that they gave me a such a great opportunity and a chance to get better. And I didn't even realize it. Yeah. You know from day to day. It was never work. It was always so much fun going with them. And and being a part of the day, you know, popular, even the jump roping session open ended the Sunday gray that translates directly in the alright fifth-set. Let sat. Oh up. I'm ready to go, brother. My my grateful through was letting me jump roping walkaway for a second and not told me when it ended. So if we gotta go all night. Let's go right, right. To me winning six two six two was always great, you know, but winning seven five or seven six v or ten eight and a fifth or whatever, you know, so much more is brought into the game because everybody hits the ball. Well, everybody's a great player in my opinion. But it's that one little something that that allows you to to be able to look across the the net to your opponents say I've got this on you. I know for sure, you know, and I'm sure guys looked at me and said the same thing to me many times, you know, but there's always, you know, I never got tired. You know, when when the fifth came along, I wasn't gonna play less aggressive. I was gonna play more aggressive. You know? So I mean to system what what gets into your mind, and you know, an, and and, but I was always good at finding a reason to push myself. Just that little bit more. You know from a lot of things that happen during my upbringing to you, not even you know, even to my modern day when I was when I was still playing at the top and was good to be able to push myself just a little bit further. Well, then we're talking by the way to Jimmy Connors. And folks, I, you know, Jimmy always soft sells this, but in the open in the open era. There's nobody's won more tournaments in my man hundred nine maybe federal gets there. Maybe doesn't think he's eight or nine out. Once you're near forty over forty and not everybody has run at thirty nine thousand hopefully to me, God bless Fedor. But he still gotta get there seems like a good cat.
