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.

"At this point in his career. Scorsese had not yet done mean streets. The movie that put him on the hollywood map but his involvement here. It makes perfect sense. Not only was he part of the team that edited. The oscar nominated for editing woodstock documentary. But he was also dating. Sandra weintraub the daughter of fred weintraub who is producing the medicine ball caravan and had previously produced woodstock scorsese flew to los angeles. It was his first time out there and began. What he thought would be a two week editing job instead it turned into a nine month nightmare. Apparently the french film crew was so high during filming. That much of the hours of film may took either mislabeled blank out of focus. Were missing audio tracks. It was a mess. Scorsese said of the film. It was nine hours long and nobody knew what was happening. It had no continuity nothing. It was a monstrous job and we did so many technical effects. I mean you can only do so much when there's no content when he was done scorsese's cut of the medicine ball. Caravan ran a mere ninety minutes. Which is less than half of the one time the woodstock documentary. Another telling sign of the bad footage is what's missing from the movie. Acts like van morrison hot tuna the campfire. Sing along with joni mitchell and the entire. I love white concert. Which featured pink. Floyd and rod stewart are all not in the final cut. So what do you get van. Wise you get. Bb king the young bloods a relatively unknown. Alice cooper delaney and bonnie doug kershaw and of course plenty of stone route and the rest of the movie. The hippies freaking out the squares of middle america well it's not really in the movie. Here's how rick will at summed up. You know this is going to be you know sort of the face of the of the hippie movement that we're going to go and come and get your daughters and hippie rock and roll worlds but a lot of that doesn't really happen and the film is sort of a lot of is a series of you know. The bus breaks down or they have to get a mechanic to help wreck on the bus. And then they set up the tease. And then every once in a while there's a music sequence and once there is good. I mean as bb king. Playing thing north of albuquerque. They had a staging outdoor concerts that footage of bb king's particularly good. Probably the highlight of the film. Yeah no the people. At lisa people outta interviewed or either supportive or tolerant of of the hippies. You know it's something to do with his huge caravan of long haired hippies and pretty girls and and Anybody do interview. Seems happy to talk to a film crew and like i said the people that they think they're going to have trouble with our or sort of supportive and the people that are supposedly on their side like the campus radicals and battlements. Like that have no purpose for it. One year later on. August twenty fifth nineteen seventy-one brothers released the medicine ball caravan into theaters. Needless to say it was woodstock reviews. Were not kind and it quickly faded away even the people involved but did not have anything good to say about the movie. He the last two weeks so it was what we call business trump. How do you feel about the finished film when you watch it. What do you think of it. I'm not gene good snow..

"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 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. Okay but who's ouija free like. We only think about this. And i'm like i don't know that's a great question when i say we the general public because like a wider public. We've had this massive hardware upgrade in terms of arnor standing of gender. So that is the way i mean that makes sense and i think that is true in the latest conversations about the latest supreme court justice. There's a lot of discussion about roy. Versus wade being repealed potentially and. I was on twitter being like. Hey let's think about the way that trans people could be impacted by a loss of reproductive health. Care and there are of these people who are like. Why would any trans person ever need an abortion. How would any trans person ever get pregnant. And i was like. Oh no says people don't know anything. I mean obviously has diagnosis people. But i had forgotten like how like not even one one the majority of folks. Because i do operate in a bubble mostly people who have heard of trans people before with these words were talking about like binary. Which is you identify. They're fairly new in terms of the public usage. Did you have words to describe your feelings of gender like did you always attribute those feelings to gender. I didn't think too much about gender. Until i learned that nonbinary people existed and i started to meet people in my life who were non binary. I like many people originally heard of trans people as either trans men or trans women and like anyone who grew up. When i did they were always portrayed as a joke or portrayed as dead or portrayed as cross dressers or something horrible and so yeah it took meeting people who were like me to even consider that as a possibility because i found myself looking at them and the way that they express themselves in the way that they identified and thinking. Oh it's not fair that those people get to be non binary and those people get to us the then pronouns. I don't get to. And then i was like what do you mean. I don't get to and so i did and you know that's that's how it worked. But for most of my life there were moments than i never really attributed to being wrong about my gender. I just attributed them to me being bad at my gender. Oh that's interesting yeah. I was like failing at being a woman right. Like i didn't know how to be a woman because in your mind you didn't have any other options right right. I can be a woman..

"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.

So I wanna know what went through your mind when you're contemplating how to perform this particular song at this particular moment. What did it mean to have this opportunity to remotely address this community amid a broader social movement in our country? Asking these questions of how we fit into society and what? Society owes us in what society continues to maintain the status quo have been questions that I've been wrestling with prior to. All of the social unrest that we're seeing. Wrestling with these questions in dealing with the dice, sport influences of black music and really chronicling my own personal experiences, a black man in America and as a musician from the south, and you know this this moment presented itself. And it really felt organic to step into it. The anthem really being this combination, this historical document if you will in our country. There's also there seems to be a flavor of like to my on educated yearly southern rap kind of feeling the beats that you put in there. There's the orchestra sound of drums. There's maybe some Hendrix. So I just want you to clarify what went into your arrangement. Era Pablo you heard a lot. So many strains of the black American experience. Me Bay from the south ahead of bounce being. That is something that I grew up here in all over the streets in New Orleans. I. Picked up the Guitar Midway through with this kind of nod to Jimi. Jimi Hendrix version from. Woodstock The Blues Music which came from sharecroppers and slaves that then evolved into rock and roll and RB. Adding that to the anthem with the classical timpanist and the cello being the counter line to what I was playing on the piano. Gives it this epic quality that I feel? I ask for a deserves. If. They were musicians. What kind of activism would my heroes portray in a moment like this o'hare? And Counter John Lewis. Out Gradually, but we wanted to be free now. mlk My poor little children. Will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of skin but by the content of character, I have a dream. Now, John Is there a particular rendition of the song throughout history that resonates with you. is so many but you have to pick Whitney. You know come on man. Yes.

"Those of you who are already part of the talking about our generation family. Welcome back for those of you or a new to our podcast. Welcome. This podcast is all about connections sharing caring communicating aimed at baby boomers me those of us born between nineteen, forty, six and nineteen, sixty four. We're about remembering who we were and what we've accomplished in what all that means. Today right now 'cause that conversation is really important. We launched last year on the fiftieth anniversary of Woodstock because that was an event that had a major influence on our generation. So we started with a series called the woodstock roads which are conversations with people who made woodstock happened, and who created that amazing magical woodstock spirit that still lives on in many of us today. Soon. We'll be airing our fifty first anniversary of Woodstock episode and we have a very special guest in store for you. We'll talk about that later in this episode but right now we invite you to listen in on our conversation with Lisa Law. Lisa has been a photographer since the days of Haight Ashbury probably even before that and she was also part of the hog farm that was responsible for feeding nearly two hundred thousand woodstock attendees. If. There is one word I would use to describe. Lisa, it's driven. If these were the days of the old West and we were heading from east to California. I would want Lisa driving the lead wagon in the wagon train. Join me now in my conversation with Lisa. You started documenting events in movements with your camera way before Woodstock back in the Christie Minstrel days the love ends in San, Francisco and Haight Ashbury. You were the witness. Through your is, we got to see a lot of the life from those times in the sixties and not just the musicians but the culture, the things that you covered were are conic I- I documented. Every part of my life and I was really lucky to be at the right place at the right time. I was there for the commune's for the. Haight Ashbury for Woodstock monory pop I just happened to be at the right place at the right time with her husband and while I was traveling around in my hippy bus. We have this big giant hippy bus fixed up in the second Alec I still drive it today. It's out of my driveway. I was able to have a dark room in the bus so I was always printing developing and. I was able to. Share those with other people and I felt it was important to show her how beautiful the hippies were in what their ideas were back to the land and natural childbirth eating good food and recycling, and all those values that are so important today were started in sixties. So let's talk about the hog was the hog farm commune. Farm is a Commun-. Of like people that chipped in and did. Helped up with a work. Great. The Hog farmers still commune. Have A ranch up in late in Ville. and. They still run campaign rainbow with Wavy gravy and Johanna Raw. Their commune lasted because. They. Really worked at.

And they stayed overnight with him. They were in the bus in the morning the owner said, get out all these people. And just at that point, there was a Fellow up the hill ahead a hog farm. And he had a heart attack. And he asked them if they would come up and slop hogs. So the whole group of. Wavy in his few people and then the pranksters all went up to the top of the mountain there and slop hogs. Okay.

Living In A Groundhog Day
"Good morning everybody. It's Iowa Mala and it's Thursday morning July thirtieth. Look. It's low cooler today here. So maybe it's cooling off. Where you are to hope your weather we having nice weather as we enter the end of the summer. Wow I was just thinking. Just a few minutes ago at one of my favorite movies is groundhog day and if you haven't watched the movie. What's the movie because I realized thinking about it We're living in a kind of groundhog. Day. And our temple is in Woodstock. Illinois and that's where the groundhog day movie was made. And so it there's a there's a great affection for Bill Murray and for the making of the movie and Woodstock Has A. GROUNDHOG's Day big festive weekend festival every year. So It's meaningful but. Before I had ever seen it. be a friend of mine. told me. It's the most Buddhist movie I've ever seen in. This is longtime ago when the movie was new. And I had to watch it two times to to get it. I think that was maybe even before I was a Buddhist or. had read anything or I don't know where my mind was when I first saw it. But It's one of those movies I can watch over and over again there are so many beautiful lessons in it and it's so funny and enjoyable it. It's a perfect pandemic movie. So if you I know I know I think now it's even on Netflix's I was looking for about a year ago. To let people know where they could find it and I couldn't find it anywhere on any kind of streaming media. Uh someone just sent a message Glenn Powers He sets my dad was an extra in groundhog day. That's great. So it's part of your family. Lower that's good. People talked about a bill. Murray would F- Baseball Games? For. The. People. And each state and he stayed in Woodstock, stock while the movie was being made. Just, this past year he did commercials in Woodstock that I just accidentally with a few other friends. We were having lunch on the square after. Right after temple on Saturday and. Bill. was shooting commercials so we got to watch him. And just kind of re live and they're the best they were I. Think they were given the best commercial. Honors for the. Super Bowl. You can see the jeep commercials. If you go on Youtube you can see they're just wonderful delightful commercials. So anyway, those little sight stories, but groundhog day is so similar to what we're living through. Now every we can wake up and we don't even know what day of the week it is. And it just keeps going. So I think that was that's what surprised all of us is. What a ride the suspend. An and it still is we don't see really any signs of things. Getting better right now. So if you watch that movie I, it will inspire you. Because, well, you'll see you'll get it when you watch it but That's we you know we all have bumps in the road of adjusting and dealing with a situation that throws us off balance but I'm hoping that most of you have found a reason. To wake up every day and have something interesting you WanNa do or something that you're that you're working on that you never had time to do before or you're getting little projects don you never had time to do before? that. You're taking zoom classes or you're reading or tuning into special classes on you to. We can use. Streaming media and things like. Youtube and things like. Facebook I'm recording this on facebook. We can use all of this stuff that. That before being I was I wanted to be off facebook I had no use for it. Before the pandemic and now I find that it's it's just a beautiful. Communication vehicle so. And I can I can do it. So it's very low tech so That's a good thing too. But. We can discover the good things about maybe technology that we that we didn't feel very good about before. We can. We can stay connected with people, which is now we really understand how important it is. And, we can find out about what's going on all over the world. And we don't have to stay We don't have to stay in the dark about what's really happening. We can investigate things and find out what's going on. So let this be your. Bill Murray Groundhog Day experience, and when you see the movie, If you haven't seen it, you must see it and when you do see at your your understand. and. I think it'll make every day a little bit more bright for you. So. There's so much. We can all be learning and we can be learning to understand just. Almost all of the Buddhist teachings. This is perfect. This is a perfect retreat for us a perfect workshop. And I know a lot of you don't feel like it's a retreat because you're still working and you're still having to deal with things that are scary and frightening and. You're worried about your kids and what we're going do about school and we're all worried about so many things but. I don't want to minimize any of that. But at the same time, this is a time for us to look look inside of us. Find the joy of helping other people find the joy of finding of really understanding. Some of the things that are important to us and the people who are important to us and understanding ourselves. So use it to be. Something that you can look back on and think. I I got a lot of good out of it

Best Meditation Practices
"Good Morning. It's Tuesday morning June twenty third. And, I'm be Coney Huila from Blue Lotus in crystal lake. Well. I live in crystal, Lake Illinois, and the temple is in Woodstock Illinois. Out Today is Beautiful Day here. It's been a little stormy. How is how is your place? How are you this morning? How's your mind? Getting enough movement. Enough exercise. I don't think I am I have to work on that harder. Too much sitting at the computer. So today. I wanted to start with a question someone had sent. Asking if which is best one thirty minutes sitting day for your meditation practice. Or doing six. Five minute short meditations during the day. And that's a that's A. It's a good question. It's interesting. I think for some people. When they begin, the five minutes might be all. They feel they they can handle. All, they feel they can sit still for. They may not see. They may not be really committed to. The practice and just trying it out so if that's the case. I'd say try the five minutes as often as you can during the day and see how you feel. But. In terms of The real benefits of meditation I think working towards that thirty minute. Time every day is better for us because we are really then able to begin developing the stillness. The saw Mata the the tranquility our bodies. And the slowing down. And allowing us to then access. The the deeper benefits of meditation. And in the long run that's what will be. That's what will be. really wanting more and more of. But I don't think the five minutes if you can scatter those through your day. And give them a good five minutes. I think that's necessarily bad for everyone I I think. There are a lot of people who might start that way. and. If you're doing that, would wholeheartedly, you'll find pretty soon that you want to sit longer than five minutes because you might just be relaxing. And Ready to sit. When the five minutes is up. But if you've if you've committed your schedule to only having five minutes then. Your body's going to be ready to get up even if you're kind of longing to stay. So if you can only do five minutes do that and do as the. Person asking the question mentioned Stu. It may be six times a day. You can do that at work if you took a five minute break every couple of hours and you were able to sit somewhere. But really make your goal to be the thirty minutes because I think that's where the real benefits from our practice will show up in our lives, and the practice practice for herself of moving beyond just the. Surface, but really down into see. What's going on with us in accessing? Accessing deeper. Deeper parts of us. Okay. But that's a great question. What are we doing in the world? He stays at so up in the air. Right into. There's so many questions. I have a an upcoming retreat I'm really feeling. I have really mixed messages about that and. Having have to make a decision today doing it or not, and this one I'm one of the leaders for so it makes a big. It's a big. It's a big decision. And I, know individuals make their own decision about going, but I realized that this is what we're being faced with more and more as things open up. But not very well being opened up. We're in stage four now in the in this part of Illinois. So. We're we have more access to places that were still being. Really encouraged where mask into social distance and we, we see the statistics at all over the world. The numbers are rising again. And we have to make lots of decisions and. Hopefully make the right decision, so that may be a more conservative decision than we'd like to make sometimes. we may not be. There may not be a heavy weight of the majority behind us, but remember we have to. Follow the path. That were laying out for ourselves. We have to be true to what we. Honestly, see going on in the world. And evaluating that. And once in a while. Someone will remind me that you know I'm in that. I'm thinking about other people and then someone. Usually. My daughter will remind me that I'm in I'm old I'm in the high risk area. I'm one of the. Just because of my age. And then they're probably some you know. Some other things that are combined with the age, but just my age puts me into that category of I need to be really
Celebrating The Life Of The Buddha
"Good morning it's May the seventh. I'm pretty sure and Thursday morning and I'm live if you can't see me now hope you can watch me sometime today. It is beautiful here Crystal Lake Illinois so I hope you're having good weather where you are. Today is very special day. Today is the day that is recognized all over the Buddhists world while this season is but different cultures have different days for their official date. May the seventh today. This year is the official Visa Day. Bassac means It's it's we call it Buddha Day an English and it's the celebration the biggest celebration in the Buddhist world but it's a celebration of a Buddha's birth his enlightenment and then his final enlightenment when he dies so we're really celebrating the life of the Buddha and we've rolled all those those important dates together to basically have a beautiful celebration. That's a reminder to us of a great our great teacher and The things that he led a path for us to experience so what he did in what he achieved and what he experienced we also to experience for ourselves so having a a path finder The Buddha was for us is is is beautiful. Things of the Soviet sock is a beautiful celebration so for Buddha Day and the entr Lanka that is the this year may seventh. Is that official day so our teachers at Blue Lotus Four. Four of us are Four of the teachers. The monks are from Sri Lanka. And I'm the Western representative on the Western monastic. So it's a very. It's a beautiful day and this year is the first time that we haven't been able to celebrate it and So we're asking everyone to celebrate it to celebrate it in your home in your heart and it's a wonderful time to a- to offer Donna and if you don't have monastics nearby you can offer Donna to your community so you can offer your generosity to the community You can think of the different ways while you're still of staying safe that you can reach out to others and just share sheer the delight of the day. Share your your feelings. For what a Special Day. It is make cookies for someone. When we have the celebration and in Woodstock the those of you who have been there and those of you who help every single year. No it's we have lots of food that everyone brings and the other temples who visit US Vietnamese Buddhist temples in Chicago who are like a like a brother and sister temples for us. And they're in the Maya tradition and they celebrate with us and we celebrate BASSAC with them. They bring wonderful food and they bring the monastics and they bring The answers they open they open our altar with a beautiful dance and present flowers and we have dragon dancers and we have Indian dancers and be a wonderful short talks and chanting with our local chanting group of life. People and It's then we have a parade through around the square and downtown Woodstock and then everyone comes back to the temple and we have refreshed months and fellowship and It it's A. It's a wonderful day. We get way we get hundreds of people at this event so this year and we cram it all into one day because culture in Buddhist countries. It's usually about a week long. It's a it's a big week long celebration with festivals all over and food and it's all about giving so it's definitely not something we do to raise money. It's something that we do to offer to the entire community and so it's a very special and it's springtime so we always remember. The Buddha was born outdoors and he became enlightened outdoors under a tree. He was born under a tree. He became enlightened and then his death was out in nature and in there in the wilderness. Really outside a really small village under the shade of a Tree. And so it's beautiful to celebrate in the springtime. This this wonderful celebration of important times in the life of the Buddha

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.

Richard Paul (Maliseet) Part 1
"Stay good day. Welcome my friends to storyteller who you'll find first nations people from across native North America who are following Jesus Christ without reservation as a little boy. Richard was introduced to getting high soon. Drugs and alcohol would control his life but he longed for something more he wondered if God was really real because he wanted to get his life turned around. My Name's Richard Paul and from the Saint Mary's reserve here in Fredericton. I'm analysis native from New Brunswick. I was born in Woodstock on Woodstock first nation and we moved here. I was just a little baby so I've pretty much been here my whole life and I knew I married. My wife is melody we have three kids anyway. I came to know Jesus Christ sometime in the late. Nineteen thousand nine through to early. Two thousand is a bit of a process for me because I had come from drug addiction and alcohol and I just when I came to Christ my life was was in turmoil. Hi I had a lot of good things in my life. That were positive. Had a good job I had. I just had a lot of good things. It really from the outside. Everything looked like it was pretty stable but on the inside I was. I was Iraq really I was just in my whole life was in turmoil since I was young. You know like I said I was born and raised here. Lived here on the reserve my whole life and ever since we were little kids just seemed always. I was always one of the kids that just seemed to. You know straight a bit and I got in trouble and you know starting back when I was probably seven or eight years old and anyway we we were always doing bad things and I remember as a little boy. We'd kind of always you know. We just typical living on a reserve right next to a city. We were always getting in trouble off the reserve. I remember as a little boy. A friend friend of mine. He was Actually I saw him sniffing glue or Sniffen Gas. I don't remember what it was introduced that to me when I was just a little boy and I don't think I could have been any more than eight or nine maybe ten and It kind of made me feel like you know it it. It made me feel good. I was brought up in an abusive home or anything like that. But you know I just felt like it kind of gave me a bit of an escape and I think it opened the door in my life that led to a life of turmoil and sin and just a whole bunch of things in my life. That weren't good and I think that was the doorway that opened up for me and by the time I was eleven or twelve hours smoking weed and and by the time I was thirteen. I really was a regular marijuana user and By the time I hit probably fourteen or fifteen I was drinking in the sixteen. I was a I was a problem drinker. It just accelerated that fast. I left home when I was seventeen or eighteen and moved into an apartment with a friend of mine and tried to go to university and that didn't pan out. Alcohol seemed to consume my whole world. That's all I cared about was drinking. And and by the time I was seventeen or eighteen. I had experimented with just about everything Doing acid and weed and alcohol. Every kind just pills speed everything. The only thing is in our neck of the woods down here. Cocaine was not a cocaine seemed to be like this. Hollywood drug that nobody heard about here. It was just kind of something you see on movies and in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine. Roughly around nineteen eighty nine. When I was I was twenty one or twenty two years old. I was introduced to cocaine. And it was just a just an occasional thing. I I did it in nineteen eighty nine hundred ninety. Nobody really was aware of cocaine around here. I had actually met up with a guy one night. And we were drinking and and he was with a relative of mine and he was a he was a cocaine dealer. And I didn't know it. And that was my introduction cocaine and is if I didn't already have enough problems this was introduced into my life and it completely consumed me from nineteen eighty nine up until nineteen ninety nine when I came to Christ and It it just you know. I can't even find the words to tell you what it did to my life. I just thank God that I didn't get addicted to heroin or things like that and I think in time that was just a matter of time before I would've been had Christ not come into my life in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine but I need to back up a little bit because I I met my at the time. It was my girlfriend in nineteen eighty six and we started dating a little bit. And you know. I don't know if I was necessarily ready for a girlfriend at that time. But you know we we kinda went out a little bit not really dating. But kind of you know and and Anyway as the relationship progressed a you know met. Her parents and I discovered that her parents were Christian. People and I don't know why it was. I have no idea why but I had this big question mark about God i always wondered if God was real now. I always wondered at the time on. Tv there was a lot of television ministries. And I can think of one like this. One minister was always on there and I always wondered. Why are these people always so passionate about Jesus and about God and I just always thought that God had many faces and many different aspects to him and I? I didn't realize it you know because I really had no faith. I was brought up belonging to the church but I didn't go and you know God was not a big thing in my life. Religion wasn't church wasn't and Swanton met my girlfriend. I naturally I had this natural curious side about God I just remember I used to ask her about God and she would always kind of go. I don't know I don't why are you asking me this I i? I don't know I didn't know at the time. She was running from God herself anyway. We met up in our world just kind of collided in her world. Met My world and in one thousand nine hundred eighty six. We started a relationship that was you know it was pretty. It was pretty up down there from one thousand nine hundred six until I get saved in nineteen ninety nine. After I'd met her I was watching. Tv One Sunday morning. And as I've already stated I was a real problem drinker. I had a lot of head a lot of anger and a lot of things going on in my life that I really couldn't find answers to and Was watching one Sunday morning. I had a little apartment in a in an area of my city where I was living at the time and my little apartment had nothing in it. I just had a couch and the TV and add some curtains and that was basically it. I don't know if they got any furniture in the kitchen. Hardly had any had nothing and I was sitting on my couch on Sunday morning watching. Tv and we'd been drinking all weekend and half the week like we did every single week and drink and brings a lot of for me. It brought a lot of kind of mixed feelings after you know you. You ought to drunk for a little while you have these feelings of wanting to get your life straight and thinking you know like I should be like some of my friends and get on with my life is just not good in every time I kinda sober up and after the brakes when you're young it's not like some drunk that's been drinking for fifty years. That's different when you're young. You can kind of handle the abuse your body can take that abuse and so when you snap out of a drunk after three or four or five days. He you know physically. You're not you're not really down but emotionally and spiritually. I always felt really bad. Nice to think to myself I should try to get my life straightened out and of course. This was one Sunday morning. When I was feeling that way and I was flicking through the channels and I saw an evangelist on TV and as I was scrolling through the channels. He was singing in. I remember he was singing a song. I think it was called room at the Cross and I I saw him and I paused their for minute and I remember. I watched him and he was singing this song and and I remember feeling something in my in my heart thinking what is that. What is that feeling that? I'm feeling

"Was Woodstock and Harlan Lebo joins us now Harlan what surprised you when you're reporting in your research what surprised me most is how much I heard over and over again. the great feeling of brotherhood and sisterhood that really was there this was not about drug use this was not about running naked through the woods of upstate New York what it was about was people four hundred thousand people truly understanding that people can get along together in really really tough circumstances ranging from August heat to August thunderstorms to mud to lack of food flask lack of sanitation yet in spite of all that. many of the foreign a thousand view this is the pivotal moment in their lives as one reporter said he could actually feel consciousness changing because of this and that was the biggest surprise of it never really hit me that hard before and you can feel that. if you look at well they're in several movies made about at the academy award winning documentary by Michael Wadleigh about called Woodstock is is good it doesn't have as much about the social experiences I think should have been in but if you look at the American experience program they just came out this month about Woodstock it's really very much about the social impact of it and you can see how much she really did change the people over there and by extension the millions and millions of people who later saw the movie Woodstock and share the experience to the point where felt so profound to them that you always hear about people is saying well I was at Woodstock but I really just saw the movie so that was the biggest surprise for me the let's talk a little bit about where Woodstock and its location where is it why was it chosen and talk a little bit about a man named yes okay Woodstock has absolutely nothing to do with Woodstock New York at least the concert didn't that was the original intention would would stock is about two hours north of New York City the original intention was to have a concert of probably twenty five to fifty thousand people there the city turned it down US three out to other communities then turned it down and then in Bethel New York which is about ninety minutes from New York City it's in the Catskills on state route seventeen okay the promoters found his beautiful pasture land that was essentially a giant bowl you know I I a hillside leading down to the ball at the bottom it was the perfect setting for a concert Maxie Oscar is a it was a dairy farmer based in in Bethel New York a Republican of raised in New York City so is anything but the rural farmer yeah he strongly believe that the people who have been rejected by three other cities to have that where there are towns were they wanted other concert had their right to have their concert so Max released his land to the promoters and that's for the concert was held when I read something because this is not alive enough and I'm. today and it's well yes groose conversation with a reporter I hear you're considering changing the zoning laws to prevent the festival I hear you don't like the look of the kids were working at the site thank you don't like their lifestyle I you don't like they were against the war and that they say so loudly well I don't particularly like the looks of some of these kids either I don't particularly like their lifestyle especially the drugs in the free love and I don't like with some of them are saying about our government however however if I know my American history tens of thousands of Americans in uniform gave their lives in war after war just so these kids would have the freedom to do exactly what they're doing that's what this country is all about and knocked on I'm not going to let you throw them out of our town just because you don't like their dress or their hair or the way they live or what they believe this is America and they are going to have their festivals and wow what a great American testament of that a Republican and an old timer in an old school would say heck you got my land by the way I'll take fifty thousand dollars please yes well he he lost a lot more than that I think it's a longer because but yes he did take fifty thousand dollars to lease the land but he was also there to support the kids he is he essentially almost opened his home to them when when he found out that people were selling water it was in the promoters of some kids who brought some water over selling it by the glass he opened up his taps and let people fill up his their their canteens and glasses from his property but he was quite dedicated to them and then as it turned out later he died not too long afterward but it turned out that he he worked hard to be a an intermediary between disenfranchised kids in the family that left behind serving almost as a as a post office to try to connect kids back with their families so. he really was one of the great unsung heroes of that era then more power to him for doing that indeed and you write the vast majority of the four hundred thousand at Woodstock would just young people challenged by a challenging age as they struggle to find direction in their lives for many they would find the beginning of their focus it would stop talk about that if you look at you look at footage or was stocking to think about who was really there it wasn't for the thousand hippies meaning four hundred thousand drop outs who were living off the land or spending off other people they were just mostly middle class kids in fact they're mostly middle class white kids it was not an ethnically diverse audience but they were there to see a great concert the all the people I talked to had a tremendous love of music but I know it sounds corny to say it but they came away from wood stock with a lot more than the music of the people at all I talked to all work as volunteers at Woodstock in one form or another because they believe that strongly in it and still do and they believe it that was really the first time that I think they all believe even after the many of them have been in peace marches against the war in Vietnam but I think it really was the first time the people realize that they could get together as a society and make change can find food for people who didn't have it or find water for people they didn't have it OR medical care for those who didn't have it and that really did resonate so strongly with the people I talked to and if I think for many people who attended Woodstock to. is an interesting quote I'm gonna read from one of the attendees I've never seen so many people in one place acting so similarly it really was an eye opener that so many people could get together in one place and be hot and then what and then run out of food and still act so civil talk about that and they did for those who brought food they would pass it around they certainly passed around yeah joints too that's true but but there was a great feeling of sharing and caring because. when when the food stands are actually selling food ran out of food there was the the townspeople who had many of whom have been opposed to it realize well we may have been opposed to this but they were inspired by what Max Yasgur's said and they made thousands and thousands of sandwiches and brought in food by helicopter and try to support the the kids were there as best they could so there really was that spirit that we can do this we can change the world we can become part of a better society if we just all try. let's talk a little about the chaos because they're became food shortages water shortages and then of course the storms or people worry that anytime that things could turn south. well I think it was worried the whole time because there had been problems at other at other concerts that were somewhat similar but not on the scale there was a very big problem at a concert in Los Angeles where kids got out of hand in there was stone throwing in a little shopping center by got a lot of the windows broken out and I think there were those concerns the whole time but I think the attitude from the very start of we are all in this together and you can hear this in the conversations that come from the stage the very methodical impassioned people who were talking on stage in keeping everyone together and feeling like they were part of something bigger than the individuals really did make a huge difference and all the things that could have been a disaster yeah the card roads okay well you know we'll walk or the fact that there was no food well people brought it in. when the mad well we'll just be wet for a while the medical care when medical care became a problem and they were clearly a point where it was a serious problem when they just did not have enough medical care the army at that point volunteered and they were they brought in both there the army brought in not only its own medical personnel but there was a team of volunteer doctors from New York City they came in as well so anything that could have been a disaster wound up turning into Americal when we continue we're gonna talk more about Woodstock one Hundred Days how for events in nineteen sixty nine shaped America we're talking to Harlem Lee Bo here on our American stores. our ancestors past news with small folks like chickens we have the Kardashian now we may not have the thousands of hours to watch all the great TV out there but many of our ancestors didn't have a single hour. the thing was one hour wasn't one hour. one hundred it took six hours of labor to earn the tallow candles of the day that would let you read for an hour but two decades after the first oil well was drilled lamps using this oil lowered the labor cost to fifteen minutes. from a world of difference and yet still a rather large investment. today in choirs only a fraction of a second America's coal and natural gas powering our readers after we can take only so much of the Kardashian.

Now you're talking about the original woodstock doc fifty years later this mammoth box set that includes thirty eight cds and chronicles every moment of the woodstock festival audio on audio except for the times when the sound system was just playing albums by other people to fill the time they couldn't include that but other than that you can listen to this thirty hours hours and basically asked project yourself like doctor strange into the original woodstock festival and i have with me the man who made this possible and exacts exacts hello welcome and you worked for how long on this thing well in aggregate from start to finish was about fourteen years but that doesn't mean fourteen continuous is years. Thankfully you know we began working on it. In the lead up to the fortieth anniversary and then there was sort of a long interregnum period which was useful because technology caught up to where we were and what we needed and gave me a few years to think about what direction i might wanna take the center what the right shape for it was so we've been working in earnest for about the last year and and a half and i don't think i've slept for about twelve months so it's been long was the biggest thing or things that you learned about this festival because as you made clear our entire idea of it is distorted sometimes a very beneficient way by the movie and the album. We believe you've that jimi hendrix's performance especially the star spangled banner was this climactic moment which it was it was an incredible performance but no one was really there it was incredible and and climactic because it was the climax of the movie so what we know is a very filtered version in a very idealistic version. There could have been a comedy if they had done. The grateful dead set where everyone was getting shocked and the music kept falling apart. So what did you learn that. You didn't know i mean there there. Is this alternate version of woodstock's. There's a lot of alternate woodstock's but you know the woodstock that we mostly sleet no or that we think about when we talk about what's dot is the woodstock that we see in the michael wildly movie which is a swell movie but it takes liberties with chronology and event and you know as you you say the hendrix performance at the end you know that's a really cathartic emotional moment at the end of the movie so it's good that it's there because it would stock it meant nothing because nobody actually saw it 'cause they'd gone home home so there were a lot of other moments that actually happened in the moment at woodstock that had you know if you'd ask somebody who actually been there. Were really significant things that happened. Nobody would've talked to you about hendrix because they didn't see it would talk to you about canned heat or they might have talked to you about joe. Mcdonald hendrix was sort of was a thing well. I'd be back at work so i left. That's what everybody always tells me about hendrix rex. I'm most surprised that some of the attendees had jobs actually of course they had jobs can't have all been the the this mid-century erica. Everybody had jobs there. Were jobs cbs aplenty batman so we actually have you mentioned him. We have country joe mcdonald. One of the legendary woodstock performance who had some of the most long remembered moments <music> but on your box set for the first time the complete country joe and the fish performances included as well as a solo performance joe are you there iran welcome. Thanks thanks so much for being here. You're quite welcome. How important again is the festival in your own memories because you know for some people is just another gig for some performers it was you know say roger your daughter who was a very important moment for him. Personally did it feel important to at the time or did feel like just another gig. Well certainly didn't feel like another gig. I was there for the whole all three days and <hes> i'll have to <hes> take challenge to what you said about the jimi hendrix performance because i was there listening to him play the star spangled banner and i was standing there right from the stage you know close to the stage watching him play the star spangled banner and also there were like a lot of people there there was twenty or thirty thousand thousand or forty thousand people there.

As a band that was a staple of their live sets the other side of this life Fred Neil Song Song and if you listen back every other version of the other side of this life that they ever played is taken at a pretty slow deliberate kind of Loping pace attended to be sort of a kind of a relaxed jam vehicle for them live but not the woodstock version because at Woodstock. They're so excited. They're ready to go. They've been cooped up for hours just kind of waiting for this moment and now they're kind of like horses escaping the stable and just just just bolting so the version of other side of this life that they played woodstock doc is it's incredibly exciting. They play it like it's three or four times faster than any version of it they ever played before and it's intense matere. It trends you have seen the heavy gouves. Now you will see morning. Maniac music believe me yeah it's a new dawn.

"The set of the scene is you got stoned right before having to speak on cameras and he's Strang away from any comedic angle on the thing he says free a lot. Yeah, he's nervous about freedom. It's going to be fun. And then the cuts to like all these other people showing up and they're like, did you hear the concerts free a gimme like I'm no fan of guy gets stone and then has to hold together scenes. Come on, have fun background in comedy. It's like this is the part where you get to let loose at least try some shit. Yeah, I forgot during the scene that he was supposed to be right. There's supposed to be stoned in some capacity, but that happens other than that, I feel like they're. No other scenes in the movie, he just kind of back between these two destinations that could be like next door. They could be three miles apart. We don't know. I'm going to put it around one and a half miles. So in between those, you know what? Dad movie totally Dagblad things where they'd be like, man, we used to be cool and then two years later, they're just like people our age or finding love for the second time. But the problem is that also your dad would wanna see the music. Like we waited, here's Shannon, where are they? That's what's amazing really gripping this bit. I mean, this is a Griffin. I'm not complaining proud of you. I truly didn't know until this movie was almost over that, like imagine how disappointing you would be if you'd be like you wanna go see the Woodstock moving when used to love that stuff. Just like what's going on us as Lee fans, we read like, and he doesn't show the concert. That's kind of cool. Sounds like my kind of movie, but the only people who would enjoy this movie are the people who adore Woodstock in the mythology of it so much. And they would be so frustrated by not getting to see shot because it's not even. The Michael Lang planning Woodstock movie. It's what about the guy who ran the hotel down the road, and it's like, well, that's the least interesting conceivable take on culturally significant event imaginable. Like think of anything else that was relevant and think of that version of it where it's like the same jobs is neighbor, right? And not even sure made a lot of computers just like these are the people that run the restaurant down the street from where apple is. And will come in and they're like, computers, we're gonna make they're talking about it and then like you can kind of look over the fence and see that they're building the cube. See, that's I like the jobs as neighbor thing because it means that it's guy just going to work every day and every time he pulls the car inter Atta the garage, he kind of may be doing per second. And the rest of the movie is just him being really Macram. One Steve Jobs comes over for a barbecue, and then they're like, what are you working on something big and credit tucked in your shirt? What. Jeans here. Well, why don't you borrow my black turtlenecks. The other thing we're not mentioning the is this sort of gay. Oh, waking, but like, but you kind of have the impression he's already a little more. It's only key is repressed hall, like a phone call of someone who seems like an ex boyfriend, and then you see now to his parents, but it also doesn't seem that he's in denial necessarily or actively hiding it. And then he has this crushing. Call? Yes. And they make. Cut past, but then also when they make out, he looks back to see if his father still there. Right. And he's not right? Yeah, it's cost over like everything. I think this could have been cool if it was like three hours long and tripled its commitment to its concept. Yeah. I also think like it feels like especially coming after Brokeback mountain. His notion was, let's make a movie where the characters gain. It's not about that at all, and I can normalize it, but then they pay so little mind to it that it feels almost like a nineteen forty studio movie where they're trying to code him as gay without actually saying that he's gay save for like the kiss. Sure. Trying to not even knowledge it really..

"Right, right. Jersey boys made money could be like after which like doesn't exist, you know much like this movie. Yeah, yeah, guys like that. It's just like a weird filmography. So it's hard to connect. Yeah, right. But but this, I don't know. I remember well, this feels like a movie that someone got fired off of and. He came in at the last minute, but it's not. It's not, which is so strange. It also feels like one of those things where like it would never work because no one would get fired up this movie like adding Andy shankman fight off this movie is like, why don't we call on Lee and see if he wants to make this like they wouldn't do it. This one of those things where it's just like, well, there's just kind of not a movie. They're like, I can see how they'd be like, oh, this story is kind of interesting if someone gives you the five minute version of it of like, isn't it funny how this guy was instrumental in in taking Woodstock when it's really in planning what stock? Right? But then you actually stretch it out to this distance. Like the guy wrote a book about his experience, his his sort of memoir times. A lot of people said was totally full ship. Yeah. I also can't imagine it being a very engrossing book to this book is in movie is not about the planning of Woodstock. Woodstock is planned off screen and happens off screen, sort of just a bunch of incidents that happened that aren't very Woodstock adjacent kind of and. Moody's housing, people who went to Woodstock, it could be called the movie is stunningly lacking both dramatic and comedic tension looking, could you pick a lane so easily and be like the Woodstock's the backdrop for this guy's inner struggle in journey? Sure. This helping him realize who he is, which movie kind of pointedly doesn't because his memoirs about how he had been in the stonewall riots, like sort of awakened him to being more openly gay. And I mean, a lot of this stuff is just like whispered in the movie deals of the sexuality, very strangely. And the other thing is the beginning. They're setting up a very conventional like that seen with him and his sister who if this movie was made two years later would have been Jenny slate and also should have been felt like a deleted scene Krell watching movies where there's a deleted scene in the moving. Yes, the vest they just forgot it. Sure. But that scene where she's setting up, like here's apartments being packed up in boxes wants to be a designer, like all this stuff, the struggle, and then he just sort of comes. A lump for the rest of the movie until at the end. He's like fucking, I'm leaving. It doesn't really feel like there's any sort of internal journey in between those movies like my parents are idiots annoying, and we're like, we, we know we watching the movie by the way I feel like considering the movie already starts to Mitri Martin that could have been Guinea. It could. She could have been in there anyway. 'cause obviously. Invite them up and he was like, I got, I'm coming back to America after less caution. I need to go to reffing and see who's hot because I'm casting this movie. I tree Martin, he'd been in the rocker. Can we talk?.
