9. janvārī plkst. 19.00 Jaunā Rīgas teātra Lielajā zālē notiks Normunda Naumaņa Gada balvas mākslas kritikā pasniegšanas ceremonija, kuras moto šogad ir "Nebeidzamais neizšķirts". Ceremoniju gaidot, 2023. gada pirmo "Atsperi" vadām kopā ar teātra kritiķi, "Spēlmaņu nakts" 2022./2023. gada sezonas žūrijas komisijas priekšsēdētāju Tomu Čeveru, kurš 2017. gadā pats saņēmis Normunda Naumaņa Gada balvu kritikā - toreiz kā jaunais kritiķis. Anete Ašmane-Vilsone: Kā tu pats nonāci teātra kritikas nozarē – kas tevi uzrunāja šajā profesijā? Toms Čevers: Nozarē nonācu, pateicoties Līgai Ulbertei, kura visādi veicina jaunu cilvēku iesaistīšanos teātra kritikā un arī mani vairākkārt mudināja pievērsties šai jomai profesionāli. Tā nu izmantoju šo iespēju un nonācu kritikā. Vismaz sev esmu noformulējis to, ka laikam jau tikai rakstot un savas domas saliekot loģiskā secībā, strukturējot to, ko esmu redzējis, varu pa īstam izprast to, kas noticis, un kaut kā paildzināt procesu, kad esi iekšpus mākslas darbam. Jo citādi jau ir tā: grāmatu izlasi un to aizšķir, filma beidzas un televizoru izslēdz, izrāde beidzas un priekškars aizveras… Bet kritikas gadījumā tu kaut kā turpini dialogu ar izrādi iegūsti ko vairāk. Tas laikam bija sākotnējais mērķis. Gana bieži uzbango diskusijas, vai kritika vispār ir vajadzīga un, ja tā, tad kam tā ir vajadzīga; vai tā ir objektīva un tamlīdzīgi jautājumi, kas, iespējams, nerims nekad. Vai tev ir sava atbilde uz tiem? Vai kritika ir vajadzīga? Noteikti! Jo kritika jau ir publicistiskas žanrs, tai ir tās pašas funkcijas – informēt, izglītot, izklaidēt. Tas viss tur ir, tāpēc kritika ir neatņemama teātra mākslas un vispār sabiedriskā procesa sastāvdaļa. Tā ka vajadzīga tā ir noteikti, un cerams, ka arī paši mākslinieki tajā var izlasīt kaut ko, kas viņiem var kaut ko dot, un ļauj citādi paskatīties uz lietām. Tai noteikti ir arī pozitīvs pienesums. Teātra mākslinieki lasa recenzijas? Daži atzīst, ka lasa. Daži noliedz, ka lasa, bet arī lasa. (smejas) Bet droši vien kāds arī nelasa. Bet nu – cerams gan, ka lasa, jo tas būtu jaukāk – biežāk saņemt atgriezenisko saiti: gan tad, kad recenzija ir izdevusies, gan tad, kad nav… Man vienmēr šķitis, ka tieši teātra kritika visspilgtāk iemieso kritikas uzdevumu tieši pret skatītāju, jo viņš, izlasot šo recenziju, vēl var aiziet uz konkrēto izrādi. Vai arī – aiziet uz izrādi, pēc tam izlasīt recenziju un salīdzināt to ar savām domām. Mūzikā tas ir citādi – koncerts ir izskanējis un bieži vien neatkārtojas. Vai tavuprāt teātra skatītājam kritika ir praktiski pielietojama? Noteikti! Jo teātra process jau ir ļoti aktīvs – izrāžu ir ļoti daudz, un pirmkārt kritiķis var palīdzēt orientēties tajā, ko teātros var redzēt, ko gaidīt no konkrētās izrādes, ko negaidīt, kurā vilties, kurā nevilties. Tādā ziņā recenzija noteikti var kalpot par ceļu karti skatītājam teātra pasaulē. Bet nu – protams, gribētos piedzīvot arī tādu mirkli, kad tavu recenziju lasa skatītājs, kurš varbūt neies uz konkrēto izrādi vai vispār neies uz teātri, bet tavu recenziju grib izlasīt tāpēc, ka teksts ir interesanti uzrakstīts un pats par sevi var kaut ko dot skatītājam. Vai tu par to bieži domā rakstot – lai šī recenzija būtu autonoms publicistikas darbs, kas uztverams, iespējams, arī bez šīs izrādes noskatīšanās? Drīzāk jautājums būtu – vai tas iznāk vai neiznāk… (smejas) Protams, ka gribētos, lai tā būtu, jā! Katrā ziņā rakstot gribas formulēt vispārīgākas lietas. Lai atklātu to, kā izrādes rosinātās domas korespondē konkrētajam laikmetam, kurā dzīvojam, kādiem aktuāliem notikumiem. Gribētos, lai tas sajūdzas kopā ar vēsturi, šodienu. Protams, tas ne vienmēr izdodas. Tavs kritiķa ceļš nu jau turpinās vairāku gadu garumā: 2017. gadā tu pats saņēmi Normunda Naumaņa kritikas balvu kā jaunais kritiķis, turklāt tagad esi "Spēlmaņu nakts" žūrijas priekšsēdētājs. Kā veidojies tavs ceļš? Kā esi nonācis līdz šim gana nopietnajam amatam? Tikai rakstot – nekā citādi jau to nevar izdarīt. Rakstot, publicējoties, iepazīstinot ar sevi un savu redzējumu par teātra izrādēm. Un darot to arī tad, kad negribas. Ja kādam tas viss šķiet vērtīgs, tad arī iespējams šāds mazs progress. Vai tev pašam ir kādas atmiņas par Normundu Naumani un viņa rakstiem? Galvenokārt par rakstiem. Visspilgtāk atmiņā palicis viņa ekspresīvais stils: no vienas puses – subjektīvs, no otras puses – balstīts tik plašā erudīcijā un kultūrvēsturiskajās zināšanās... Viņa recenzijām piemīt neapšaubāma kvalitāte. Tās noteikti ir tādas, kuras gribas pārlasīt, neraugoties uz to, vai izrāde ir vai nav redzēta. Vai kritika, līdzīgi pašam teātrim, ir gaistoša joma, vai tieši pretēji? Patiešām, teātris ir gaistoša māksla, kas baudāma tikai konkrētajā brīdī – arī uzfilmēta izrāde pilnīgi noteikti nav tas pats, kas dzīvā izrāde teātrī. Jo – lai arī cik tas neizklausītos banāli, enerģijas apmaiņa uz skatuves notiek, lai arī to nevar racionāli izskaidrot. Bet kritika ir rakstītais vārds – tas ir publicēts, un šī teksta nozīme, domāju, nemainīsies. Un tā, iespējams, reiz būs vienīgā liecība, kas palikusi par konkrēto izrādi. Tieši tā. Tāpēc arī kritiku vēlams rakstīt tā, lai zināmā mērā dokumentētu izrādi – kas tajā redzams, kas nav redzams, lai atstātu liecību par šo laiku. Vai pati Normunda Naumaņa balva tavā dzīvē kaut ko mainīja? Iespējams, tā bija apliecinājums, ka esi uz pareizā ceļa. Jā, noteikti, īpaši svarīgi tas ir ceļa sākumā – kā apliecinājums. Un šīs balvas nozīmīti esi pielicis pie džempera. Reizi gadā putekļi no tās jānoslauka un jāpiesprauž. (smaida) Katru reizi, kad pienāk šīs balvas pasniegšana, par to ataust pozitīvas atmiņas. Mēs pieminējām Normundu Naumani. Bet vai tev personīgi ir vēl kādi cilvēki, no kuriem tu tieši vai netieši esi mācījies un izkopis savu stilu? Jā, noteikti! Nāku no citas nozares, līdz ar to mana [profesionālā] tuvošanās teātrim nāk no recenzijām, no kurām esmu ietekmējies, pirms sāku šajā jomā izglītoties arī teorētiski. Tās noteikti ir Silvijas Radzobes un Līgas Ulbertes recenzijas. Kāds, tavuprāt, ir mūsdienu Latvijas teātris? Virzieni, protams, ir vairāki. Teātra māksla kopumā kļūst aizvien plašāka, robežas pārkāpjošāka, tiek sapludināti un sintezēti dažādi mākslas veidi. Arī tas, ka principā nav nekādu tabu tēmu, un līdz ar to – ja mākslinieks jeb radošā grupa pie izrādes strādājusi trīs mēnešus, visi kopā lasījuši, pētījuši un analizējuši, kritiķim izrāde jānoskatās viena vai divas reizes un pāris dienu laikā viss jāapstrādā un jāuzraksta. Kritiķis ir ļoti nepateicīgā situācijā! (smejas) Tāpēc visu laiku ar sevi jāstrādā – jākrāj intelektuālie un emocionālie resursi, lai tam tiktu līdzi. Teātra kritiķis apmeklē tik daudz teātra izrāžu… Kā tu domā – vai no teātra var nogurt? Var! It īpaši žūrijā strādājot, pārsātinājums iestājas diezgan ātri. Tāpēc labi, ka tas iespējams tikai divus gadus pēc kārtas. Jo nogurt var. Intensitātei piemīt gan pozitīvas, gan negatīvas lietas. Pozitīvais – ja ir kādas pērles, tās izceļas uz kopīgā fona. Bet negatīvais ir tas, ka viss saplūst vairāk vai mazāk vienādā masā, un tu principā redzi tikai virsotnes. Ja teātrim ir kādi noteikti virzieni un ceļi, pa kuru tas iet, tad kā ir ar kritiku? Kādi ir kritikas zīmīgie virzieni, salīdzinot ar iepriekšējiem gadiem vai gadsimtiem? Laikam jau tas ir visās mākslas nozarēs – ka kritikai arvien vairāk pievēršas nozares neprofesionāļi jeb "profesionāli skatītāji", kuri pastiprināti interesējas par izrādēm un tad sniedz savu skatu uz lietām. Arī tas viss bagātina to ainu. Tā ir galvenā tendence. Tu domā – jebkurš skatītājs var kļūt par kritiķi, ierakstot savu viedokli sociālajos tīklos? Tā mūsdienās ir: katrs grib kļūt par "žurnālistu"... Vai teātra kritika var ietekmēt procesus pašā teātrī? Varbūt pat bijuši konkrēti gadījumi, kad tā noticis? Vai tomēr tās attiecības arvien ir tādas saspīlētas… Gribētos domāt, ka var gan ietekmēt, teātrim neaprobežojoties tikai ar savu skatu uz lietām, bet respektējot arī to, ko raksta kritiķi, kuri seko procesam kopumā ne tikai Latvijā, bet arī pasaulē, un līdz ar to teātris var uz šīm lietām paskatīties savādāk. Bet – vai tas ir reāli kaut ko ietekmējis? Vismaz es pats tādus gadījumus nezinu... Vairāk un plašāk - ierakstā.

Hi, I'm Mike Cuevas a real estate marketing. This podcast is all about building a strong personal brand people have come to know, like trust and most importantly, refer. But remember, it is not their job to remember what you do for a living. It's your job to remind them. Let's get started.What's up ladies and gentlemen, welcome another episode of the real estate marketing dude, podcast, what we're doing here today focuses, we're going to talk about how you run a local celebrity brand. Start loving on your clients, not just loving on your clients, but obsessively loving on your clients, and how and why that turns into business. Before we introduce our guests, I'm gonna paint the picture very, very clearly for you guys. Andthe client experience matters period. All right, people don't remember what you did from remember how you made them feel. And the highest likelihood of generating more business in a real estate transaction is during the transaction with a client. The number one goal of each transaction that you're doing when you're working with a client is not to sell the house. That's the number three goals. The number one goal is to first impress the client so you can lock them in for a long time and repeat business. Number two goal is to create spin off business from that transaction so you can make more money. And then the number three goals actually sell the house and close the deal in that order. Now, what I want you to challenge you guys with today is what did you do during the course of the transaction that people actually remembered? Because that's what we're gonna be talking about today. The reality is that 80% of buyers forget their agents name within six months of closing the transaction. And in a business that's dominated by 80 plus percent, being referral. Using the past or people you personally met, it is impossible to run a long term real estate business without running a business and building a brand and creating an experience that people come back to. Can you imaginegoingto like a Michelin restaurantand having a shitty experience?No, that's why you're paying $800 A plate. And people will gladly pay for things and will gladly refer things that they enjoy that other people will enjoy too. So what I want to dial in today, so much is about the customer experience and how you're conducting yourself throughout the course of the transaction. And that's what our guest today is going to chat about. So without further ado, we're gonna introduce our guests coming straight out of Sioux Falls. I think it's South Dakota, South Dakota. Amy stock burger. Hi, Amy. How are you? I'm great. Thanks for having me. Mike. Why don't you tell our listeners a little bit who you are, who the hell you are, what you do and where you're at. And we're gonna get into this questions about what you're doing with your VIP program that had you guys close it what 159 closings last year? So like, we did 559 559 Whoa, 400 Okay, yeah. Go out again. Introduce yourself a little bit. Yeah, I mean, me stockbroker, ami stockbroker real estate. So I'm a broker owner of a team ridge. So we still run as a team. I've been doing this for 22 years, my husband and I run this together, we're family owned, we have a tenure of our agents of about an average of six years. So we have a system and strategy to keep our process sticky for agents as well as a lifetime leads strategy that keeps our business as a referral based business. So working with the clients that we want to work with, they don't drag us down. And having that referral, this base business being the the far, far screaming majority of our business, providing lifetime home support, which you said it. It's before, during and after. That's what we really excel at. And that's what my whole model is built around our foundation is being there for our clients before, during and after. Because the before and the after are oftentimes more important than the during it's that relationship base. Yes. And that's a more one of my brokerages core core values is that we're relationship based people because humans crave that they crave that relationship and know that they're being cared for and taken care of for life. And by doing that, we turn our clients into referring machines. So I actually termed the the term lifetime lead strategy because that's what I built my foundation on is that it uses unique propositions to stay top of mind as our clients lifetime Home Support Team, which results in them being our lifetime referral partner. I like it. Um, I actually met Amy, and I didn't know who she got, I get we get I tell you guys every week you pitch on the show. Oh, really? Sure. We're gonna show most we want to sell the shit. Great. If you have good content, you come on the show. But I knew Amy from somewhere. And thesecond time I talked to her I was like, Hey, I know you from somewhere and Amy's in Sioux Falls and Ramsey if you're listening to this, I'm calling you out right now.We're doing videos for a guy in in Sioux Falls. Ramsey we blew his shit up. We got him picked up on the news within 10 weeks of starting video. He got picked up on the new station brand new agent crushed it and then he stopped doing video. Listen, dudeWhatever brings you to the promised land you never stopped doing, you double down on that, because this gal is now kicking his ass, because she just started doing consistently and she got into the game probably eight months after him. And you just blew him away because you started creating more content and all that. So we're going to talk about your content creation a little bit. But hey, I gotta call you out Ramsey because I told you what not to do. And now Amy is eating your lunch. So don't let her eat your lunch anymore. Okay. All right. So let's get down to the work can work for my brokerage, let's go together, come over here. That could also be an option. All right. So what we what's so impressive with Amy's doing you guys is that she really understands customer experience. So we're gonna dial this in. And Amy has not only several different profit centers around the transaction in addition to commission, but she positions herself as like the one stop shop and so many real estate agents say this Oh, I'm a one stop shop. No, you're not. Here's what a one stop shop is okay. You have the attorneys, you have the contractors, you have places to buy heating lamps, you have rugs, you have carpet cleaning, you have movers, you have this, that's a one stop shop, like actually having every resource surrounded around home remedy is the one stop shop agents who claim their one stop shop, a lot of them are just like, oh yeah, I help people buy, sell and rent. I'm a one stop shop.That makes sense. 100%. So how are you guys just one stop shop, I want you to tell everyone from yesterday and I want you to walk through and I'm a buyer or I'm a seller, what's the difference between you and everyone else so everyone understands what your unique selling proposition is? Okay. Besides being the most specialized experts and connecting buyers and sellers, investors Reapers within our market, we also have a lifetime Home Support Foundation. And what that means is our clients get access to our VIP Club, which is one of the pillars of our lifetime home support. We have a lot of pillars of them, but that's one of them. So one of the pillars is that our moving trucks, they get free access to our moving trucks buy or sell one time free access for life. We have a enclosed trailer as well. We have moving supplies, there's a pain point and moving no matter what price point you're in, whether you're in a 2 million, or you're in that 200,000. So I have people who are sold houses to 20 years ago who come back and use my trucks to go buy a couch, they don't want to pay 100 bucks for on a $10,000 couch so they get access to our moving trucks. But when I put that moving truck VIP part into our pillar into my business, I also monetized it right away. So I make money off of my truck right away even though it's being used by my clients. That's the foremost the fourth most important part of that filler is I get client experience out of that it has the second part is I'm making revenue on it. And then right next to that is my market share and getting because my branding is out there on everything. So my trucks are on the road, they get 600 impressions per mile. And it's it's monetized going you bought a truck, moving truck. I've seen people buy moving trucks and then usually like the time they let the clients use it as either just part of the move. But you actually keep this moving truck open for any client to use it at any time. Yep. And and you charge for it too, right? What do you make more money on? Yeah, we charge advertising space on it so so I sell the ad space out to my affiliate partners. And so we have two trucks now adding our third and 23 and we also have an enclosed trailer and a flatbed trailer but again, everything has my brand on it My brand is part of my soul. And if you're not branding, your your business you are missing out on so much. I think that's a big you, people. Yeah, if you're not branding your business, you're just a salesperson chasing the check. Oh 100% 100% And if you're not into speak to lifetime home support, same thing with just chasing a check if you're not in this to really help people it isn't going to last anyway. So So again, our foundation is Lifetime support. So we got it that was our first pillar but almost at the exact same time and my VIP club, I decided to add my party and tool sheds shed concept as well. And basically what that is is anything that they would ever need to have a party so banquet tables and chairs, bouncy houses, commercial grade food warmers, cotton candy, snow cone, popcorn, hot dog machines, so splattered anything but what I did with all those though, is I blasted my brand on all of them. So I have my stickers everywhere so people go out they'd get my stuff can rent it for free for their parties, graduations everything. They have all their friends and family over my brand is everywhere. Where do you get all this free stuff? Maybe stockbroker? Why would they not use this? So you buy you buy? That's genius. So let me make sure so everyone understands us. So you got so one, you have a truck that you sell ad space on and you give to your clients for free to trucks and you're going to be three then you created basically a party rental company that you let your clients use again for free. So if I'm having my kids graduation, I could call you up and get a bouncy house. And and some tables and chairs. Yes. And some heat lamps because I'm freezing my ass off in South Dakota right now. Yeah, you can get all that but because because we like we have over 2000 reservations a year from our VIP program. I had software created to make it a one stop shop for our clients which I'll jump back into but again myAs team leaders in brokerages, you have to think about the consumer mindset, after they buy, you need them that the reason we advertise, you know, I did billboards forever and ever and ever I spent, you know, 25 to $30,000, a year on billboards, and those billboards were out there not necessarily to attract a new client, they were out there to remind the people who already know liked and trusted me to refer me to all their people who are making life changes. Yeah. So the software I had created is a one stop shop for my team leaders and brokers. Because again, once that consumer is done with a transaction, they're not going back to your website. They were there to research you, they were there to look at houses, they're not going back to your website. And they're either looking at your social media, yes, of course, they're out there looking at those things, but you need a place that's engaging for them to be that you're top of mind. You know, a Millionaire Real Estate agent said it the humans had two spaces in their brain. For realtors, our job is to pop the other one out of their brain and just stay forefront state and stay relevant for them. So I had software created, where our clients can go out and get access to all of our equipment, they can prove that their own time, make the reservation, all my feeds, my social media feeds are up there, my blogs are up there, they can refer us easily they can review us easily they can check out our listings, I sell ad space on a tour HST our home support team partners, and it just keeps us relevant and top of mind in front of them. So they can do that with our party shed our moving supplies, which we also have boxes and things like that, that we give out for free. The boxes branded to I don't we just burned up on Amy, you're slipping.I burned through them so fast because like she says get them get them going. But then then we have our tool shed. So our tool shed is consist of things that people don't want to rent buy or store that they're going to need for every season of homeownership. So it's like wheelbarrows, ladders, different tools. We have commercial grade paint sprayers, carpet cleaners, things like that, that they can come in use for life for free as well. Interesting. Sounds like what you got your own little Home Depot? Exactly. Commercial grade, you know, fans to get water in their basement. We have the carpet fans, we have the carpet, stretchers. I mean, it's literally anything that they wouldn't need for homeownership. I have and let me just rewind real quick. All right, this is the third VIP product that she has, okay, look, do you not notice what she's saying here guys, is the content of the show every single week is top of mind, top of mind, Top of Mind top of mind, we have to be marketing, always art marketing isn't advertising marketing is a subtle reminder that you're still there to remain on top of mind. Because if you're always advertising to your database, you're just another, you're just selling them stuff and they're eventually going to tune you out. Same way, if you talk about work with your wife all day long, she's going to tune you out too and start cheating on you with the milkman. So the whole point of being is that you have to remain in communication with your database. Not always through verbal, but sometimes through visual sometimes through social all of the above. And what she's doing is she's interjecting her brand, into a value added proposition around home remedy. So number one is you have a moving truck for any and all is like I just bought a couch or not a car, I didn't buy the couch, I was going to buy this couch, I want to buy it off of Facebook. But this a great deal, I'm gonna put this thing in my garage is perfect. But I didn't have a truck to go out there and like pick it up, and I wasn't gonna hire the truck to go and pick it up. So it's better off just buying a new one to have it delivered to me. So in your case, you're saying, Hey, I have all these I have this truck you could use whatever you want. That's part of being a client of mine is this the right role that you have has a party thing. So if you have parties, you can rent her stuff and because that's something that you would do at your house, obviously, she has a tool shed for like that's, that's amazing. Think about how many people need to clean their carpets once a year and what who's going to not hire youever if you're giving them all this stuff for free. So that's product number three of the VIP program. So there's three so far. And again, keep in mind that that this is not just for that first time second time buyer I have I tell the story all the time. I have a physician, a physician I work with this one just slays me because he can afford to buy rent and store anything he wants. He's never done it. He comes down he wants something new to my club. I add it in I put it in there because he's here using knowing that he doesn't have to deal with that shit. It's just all there. And again, my name is on everything. I have stickers big and bold. My brand is everywhere. So there's it's not even on like the carpet cleaner. Like your stickers around the carpet cleaner. I'm thinking of the one I just bought. I bought I rented from Home Depot. Like last like six months ago, I was doing the carpets in our house and ran it from Home Depot which they never worked by the way. They're always broken. Yep. And but you would have like your stickers all over that. Oh my gosh, I have them everywhere. And since I've done this for so long, I started my VIP club end of 14 beginning of 15. We know what products are durable in which ones consumers our clients want and need. So we've we've already done all the heavy lifting on this because we've been through the equipment. We know what bouncy houses suck. We know which ones are gonna last half the summer. You know we have all that taken care of like it. All right, do we have morethan we have a discount center that our clients get access to for life and this has a lot of additional lead generation attacks.add to this, as does my truck, and my party and tool sheds. But it's a discount center where our clients can save over $5,300 a year on big brands over 100,000 big brand products and in retailers like Nike Walmart, Under Armour, there's free travel in it, there's free hotel stays, it's just a really great product that they can implement in to their normal buying of what they're going to get throughout the year. And they also get cashback so they get a discount center that I bought exclusivity for all the South Dakota, nobody else can offer that up in South Dakota.Gotta get that. So I'm looking at like, this is probably equivalent. I don't know if I have one here my wallet I'm looking but I got a I think this is for my one of my kids has like a I think it was the baseball or soccer league, where they give you like a card that has like a 15% discount towards the following retails retailers, right. And like ones like the bagel shop, one's a local pizza shop. And as long as you have this card, you can always get 15% off. And so same concept, same concept, but it's national retailers. So it's the big brands, and you can get up to 85% off on some of these big brands. Same concept on that, though. Correct. And then there's a lot of you have your own.You have your own Costco. Yep, we have our own discount center there. Yes. And then another part of it is my home support team partners. Again, there's a lot of a lot of seasons of homeownership, and they need a lot of different vendors, services, things that are going to come up during the all those stages. So what I've done is I partnered with, I feel the best of the best. And we're constantly growing our home support team, with every type of industry that our buyers and sellers are going to need throughout those stages. So obviously the lenders and inspectors and title companies yet, but we have H back we have young carpet cleaners, we have restoration companies we have we now are putting you know services on there. We have restaurants in there, we have entertainment venues in there, we have all these, these people in my home support team that we're offering up to our clients that give them preferential treatment, because they're a stockbroker, real estate clients, and oftentimes preferential pricing. So again, and I have one in my my software I created, it's just that one stop shop for them to go to, to have access to all of these things right there. So they also get access to that.Anything else in this VIP? Well, then another big thing on this is what we do, again, just thinking as the team leader broker on this, we offer all of these things out to nonprofits for free. So again, great, it's great for your community, give back data. And that's what you want to do. And if you're not an entrepreneur who wants to give back to your community, again, you're not in it for the right reason, you should want to do that. So how do you get back into your commissions as a broker to one of these charities on top of that? Yep, so CASA is one we give a percentage back every month to our Casa that's a big part of my heart. I worked in an abuse shelter in college. And now the director of our local Cassatt actually was one I worked with back in the day and she's she does such an amazing job with our kiddos here in town. So yeah, we get a portion of everything every home we sell we as the brokers give back to Casa. So I mean, just the loan on that I've seen people we created pro get back programs for that are just millionaires today, because I think that's how God repays you, but it's justwow, like, you're literally chucking on all cylinders, theart she's got, she'sgoing, all right. This is not a new concept. But this is when I don't think is really used to the level it can be used is your client events. We host big client events in the give back we have on that is huge, I usually get anywhere between three to four new leads every event we do from these people, again, who can't it's a law of reciprocity, my entire foundation on top of giving, serving and and wanting to build my business is, is again the law of reciprocity, they somebody gets something they want to give you something back and kind so they it's just making them more obligated just by human nature to refer us and review us. And so like our client event, we just hosted our 17th annual Turkey giveaway and we do a free Santa Claus pictures at the same same thing we gave away close to 600 turkeys, we had over 1100 clients in our building, which was friggin amazing, you know, to have that many intercompany events per year are you guys doing? Well, we do a minimum of three this next year we're going to be doing six we do a lot of little ones. But we do three big ones. We do our turkey and Santa event. We do an ice skating event, and we do it on an ax throwing bar. And so we do a date night a lot of our kids kid based and so we shut down our bar and let them throw axes and give them drinks and food and have abeer you can't go wrong with beer and axes like no matter what like if you give me some beer give me an x go with it like your You had me at beerin September when the when the parents are like, Oh, we're going back to school. It's time for us to go out.Smart. Yeah, soLet me just sort of unpack here for the audience, you're creating a whole lot of different local community based services that keep you at the forefront in a value serve first way without ever having to talk about real estate's genius.Now, this doesn't happen overnight, I'm gonna segments a show into another direction in a second. But I'm sure you started one of these at a time, like you probably started with a truck. And then you started with this. And then you went over here into that just so people don't feel overwhelmed, like you could do this, you guys. There are so many different transactions circulating around a real estate closing, that it represents roughly 25% of the services or the workforce in America. And like, we don't think that way, though, typically. And the reason why you have so many of these, like, a lot, some of them are going out of business now. But the reason why you'd have like, the Zelos, and the open doors, because they're making money on the escrow and the mortgage and everything else around the transaction, not necessarily buying the transaction, right. So this is a mindset shift, I've seen a lot of people look at selling solar, we're about to start selling solar leads to real estate agents, because they're making money on solar. But that's another ancillary service, maybe not in South Dakota. But that's another ancillary service that is a profit center that a realtor can get paid on.But whether you're getting paid on these or not, it's just a bunch of excuses to stay at the forefront. So next question I have is how do we market this? Okay, how do you get people to know about this? How do I tie in the VIP program throughout the course of the transaction? And then how do I get them actually using it? Because it all sounds really good. But then how do I actually get them to start calling me entire? How are you marking this? I'm sure you got some kind of thing going on, like walk me through all that. Yep. So Mark Twain said, There's no such thing as a original idea. It's just impossible. So again, I did create this I, I used it from all these different things that I learned and I went through and I fail forward over and over and over, I say all the time I have a PhD and failing forward, I can fail forward over and pivot and make the mistakes. So I've made all the mistakes to perfect the process. So what I've done is I I've created a course called the copy and paste formula to implement and monetize your VIP club, that basically within six weeks, somebody can take everything I've done since 2015, and implemented into their business then to their business. So we have a step by step, no shiny object process to give them everything they need to get the VIP club into their business, and then how to monetize it, and then how to use it for the additional additional lead generation options that are out there because there's so many additional lead generations that bring in more clients more market share for us from this, because it's just easy is once it's out there, it's just easy. But you but I have everything they need from marketing, every marketing template they have from press releases to their scripts for their agents, their killer 32nd. Elevator Pitch is for their agents, their isa scripts, down to all their operations. I'm a Systems girl and I truly believe you cannot scale without systems. And so I'm very systemized And so giving them all of our systems we have for operations from onboarding and offboarding admin and agents with your VIP just to make sure your brand consistency is huge. And I'm sure you know this, but brand consistency is like one of the biggest things you need to have. And I think there's a stat I just read that your business will sell for 20% more if you have brand consistency, and agents it's the reason why when you go into a Hyatt The pillows are fluffed the same fucking way every single time. Yeah, it's the reason when you go into a high end restaurant that the food doesn't taste different every single time because if it did, that wouldn't be a high end restaurant. Yep. And like, what's crazy to me is that nobody has a system in this business. I'm system students all I care, I never, I just have a system and your business is just something you do over and over again. Alright, let's not make this overcomplicated. It could be I'm gonna walk you through a couple super simple, stupid, simple systems that you can implement in your business. And all it is is a checklist item. Yep. Right. So here would be a stupid simple system. Every time I got a referral, I would send out a million dollar bill with a $10 gift card that says Thanks a million. That's just a small system. Every time I had a closing at the final walkthrough, I would make sure to get the Testimonial Request at that point because I would never get it post. That's a system. Yeah. We're seeing the referral behavior is what I call it. You're reinforcing referral behavior. Done. Yeah. Like it. Yeah. Yeah. And I agree. There's justwithout systems you can't say like, it's kind of a joke in my business that when I say checklists, they say drink because my checklists are living breathing things. Okay, we're updating it. We're changing and they live and breathe within there because they have to. We see I mean, and I tell my agents, you know, one of the benefits of working for my brokerage is I've made all the shit and mistakes so everythingthat you that I'm giving you is a checklist and the processes that you don't have to make them because I've done it. And so now I have a system to make sure that those things don't happen. I have everything in place to make sure you can scale. And my vision is to build big juicy legacies for everybody within my ecosystem. And so I'm doing that through my systemization of what I've given as a proven process of success.We're the highest producing team in the state of South Dakota. mine personally the highest producing agent in the state of South Dakota. We are number 23. In the United States, we're a small team, we're Small Giants, you know, we had 15 agents 23 in the United States on transaction count. Yep. Transaction. Yeah, cuz volume in South Dakota is not going to be like volume in Southern California. No, no. Yeah, our average like, it's like 315 for sales price. Yeah. 2500 deals, it'sno, when you're so like, this was when I'm your client, I'm a buyer. I'm buying a house. How walk me through just like how you position the VIP club? And and at what point is it like at the buyer presentation to consult when I heard before I start working with them? Is it is it always like throughout the course of the transaction, and your agents like saying, oh, when you have a quote, like because certain things are gonna happen, it's like, oh, when we get a home inspection, so here's what you could do. Here's our VIP cup. So this carpet isn't that clean, but you could rent this from us, we'll give it to you for free, you could clean it afterwards. It's from the very beginning, depending on if it's a face to face, or even if it's a web lead, I can talk you through like maybe a web lead coming in web lead, it's in every drip every isa script that they get that that's what they're being told right away that our lifetime home support model. So they're being told about everything that they get with us. It's also it's a marketing sheet that we have, if it's the driveway buyer presentation, if they're not coming in, and it's just they want to show, they're getting that right there. It's the hook. Because again, consumers humans, I should say, in general, are so so so impatient, we want instant gratification with everything. So we need those hooks to keep them with us. Because we know what they're calling us. They're calling five other brokers to so my agents are trained to use our scripting on our homes of our lifetime home support model right away, because why wouldn't they go anywhere else. And that's a big thing, too, I guess to speak to, I have, I'm creating this other course my homes, how to how to, you know, monetize your home support team partners, because that program, that part of that pillar of my business, brought in close to $300,000 last year, because I charged my vendors $3,300a year to be a part of that program. And I have a whole system I put together and how we advertise for them what they get all this process, and they pay to be a part of it, because they want to first they're gonna get good branding and marketing out of it. And they get to be in front of my clients. But I did that again, threefold first for my clients to have lifetime home support. So they get access to all these great vendors that they're going to need to help them then build those those peoples those local people's business, second revenue, obviously getting my additional revenue for my bottom line. Third, to get in front of their employees, I want market share, I want market share, I want market share, I want market share. So to be a part of my home support team, I have to have certain amount of times that I get to present my lifetime home support model to their employees. So once I get in front of them and tell them about what we're up when they have a life change of anybody they know why the heck would they haven't looked at anybody else? Yeah.You're like one of the few people I've met that can literally answer like we brand people and I'll get like, you know, way to build someone's video series or whatever. And I was asking what's, what's the difference between you and every other agent? And no one can answer that question.You canvery easily and you could do it without thinking about it. And most times, it's sort of like this. They're like, Well,I really look out for my clients.That's your fucking fiduciary. Okay, yeah.Like, that's not a pitch anymore. It's not a USP, like, I care about you.What?You should be in the business because you care that should be given 100% the best one I like is when a lender is like, Oh, I'm going to answer my phone.Isn't that your job? Yeah. Or like when someone hasn't like these are assumptions, right? And even like for you mortgage brokers listening, or any other service provider, telling us or telling like when they're trying to recruit real is telling us that you're gonna do have good service isn't a USP that's expected. Like no one ever says, Hey, come eat my food. It's gonna fucking suck. Yeah.Break. Yeah. Oh, I have the best service. Well, that's why your business you shouldn't have to say that. Because the fact that you have to say it already tells me that you don't have confidence in doing it anyways. And so does everybody else knows the same thing. Yep. Yep, one thing too, I feel.And if you're if some agencies or teams are completely against it against this, I get it. But when I started my VIP club, I also added a transaction coordination fee for my clients. I started at $199. We now charge 499.We don't get anybody toscoff at it because the value of what they get even in one year between my discount center all my HS HS t my home, you could justify you could justify no down when Sam Yeah, they're getting likely $10,000 a year worth of savings, can they opt out of it? Wait, really they have to, they have to the agent, if they opt out and the agent can't get him to sign it, then it's an agent paid. So I'm just gonna do the math on that. Okay, you guys we're talking about and this is buyer or seller? Yep, $500 times 539 transaction. This is another 260 $270,000 of annual revenue just off of a transaction fee. So people are like, Hey, how do you pay for this stuff? I think it pays for itself. Oh, gosh.And again, I have the whole system on how to monetize it all. So my trucks, my trucks, it's not a big thing that my trucks make us about $22,000 a year because of the ad space. And we just added an additionaladvertisers row is what we call it sponsors row on them. So I'll have additional ad or revenue on those. So my trucks in my enclosed trailer. But so I have a whole system to monetize it, how to sell it to the contracts, all of that to get your trucks monetized. And again, agents in teams of brokers need to keep this in mind that this is a marketing vehicle for you. Branding vehicle for you. Yeah, this is a what kind ofwhat lead sources would you stop paying for that had a shitty ROI? I mean, what? Yes, exactly. There's so many lead sources that agents just because I think our industry is the biggest one that just throws money at dumb things that don't then they don't check their ROI. But this is a branding vehicle that's out here you're making money off of we don't throw money. This industry throws money at bad things that doesn't follow up on I mean, it's ridiculous. Like, we're so in the pray and spray mentality where we just try to hire somebody, like people will try to hire us think that we're gonna fucking make them rich, okay, no, we can't make you rich, you have to do the videos, and then you will be or you'll be successful, right? You still have to put in the work whether or not you're hiring us or somebody else that's going to get in there and, and help you build your brand or whatever you're hiring for. Right there. You still have to perform on your end, there is no such thing as a magical bullet. Like everyone likes to go out and get this great big tech and these auto responders that no one ever actually builds out, because it's way too advanced for them. But it feels good to have it because someone else said you should. Mm hmm. And you want to try to get it because you think your competitor will and so you want to compete and pick up that and and right now more than anything, don't you feel this is when you should do it in every market, every market but with this market shift, knowing that there's less opportunities, there's going to be less opportunities next year in our market, there's just going to be less houses that are going to sell there just will be what's going on. Now it's time to lean in to your only thing I would be doing right now is loving on my soI and I'm going to focus on any type of prospecting or lead gen. It's going to be a very specific niche. We're doing it we're doing motivated seller leads. That's it. That's our advertising and motivated seller leads we're looking for high distressed people. Those are all I'm spending money on for Legion. Everything else is brand smart. Yep, that makes complete sense. People ever wants Leads leads leads, but who cares? I want closings closings, closings. Oh yeah. I don't like chasing after people that I like when people come to me. That's what happens when you have a brand guys and there is a difference between branding and marketing. And I would say you're you see a lot of the same gurus I do. But even within the last two to four years, I started to seven years ago and I'm like You guys gotta be marketers. I'm gonna talk about marketing then in content creation, literally, the industry Evers lead gen, everyone's talking about how to convert Zillow leads realtor.com leads how to call expireds how to call for sale by owners and all these old school type prospecting techniques that the reality is is that are really cut out for maybe about 4% of the industry that will actually succeed at those types of tactics. But the only tactic or any marketing thing that will work equally with every single person that implements that is marketing and building a brand off the database you already have because within that database they already know like trust and love you and a certain percentage of those people to the tune of 10 to 15% will be moving this year with 100% of them having a referral for you the question is whether or not they're going to use you or not. When you're top of mind those chances increase very greatly. This isn't rocket science is it Alma is that that is the biggest that's what I built it off of and before I started this like just a little background on me, I started with my broke is can be had a brand new baby at home they weren't my youngest went to his first closing when he was two weeks he's now he got licensed when he was in high school sold his first house in high school he now works for us but heI was busting my ass at open houses. I was running 15 to 25 open houses a weekend and I was doing good because we didn't you know at that time my biggest ad spend was print because that's how long I've been in the business.So busting my ass and it got to a point where I was like this does not make any sense I need I need to sendmenten my clients had that they should go nowhere else ever again, because of the service I'm giving them. And if I'm not giving it an I'm big on mine, I expect good service where I go, if I'm not giving that to them that they can't refer me right away to anybody who's making a life change. Everybody knows somebody making a life change, not Hey, who do you know who's buying who wants to buy or sell? That's the shittiest thing to ask, like, who do you know that's in a life change, anybody in a life change is likely going to be somebody I can help, you know. And so that's what that's what really the whole, this whole thing was born, it's like, there has to be a better way for me to have a foundation to make sure that I'm being referred out as much as possible and taking care of my ecosystem so well, that they have, they wouldn't never think of not referring me, you have to have a brand. Otherwise you'll never attract. Yeah, and there's a lot of ways to build the brand, folks. One, you do it through an experience. Like with what you're doing. Yeah. But you also got to do through ongoing marketing to like, there's nothing and everything you do in the business is marketing, the views you see the kitchens, you walk through the clients you meet, it's all marketing and storytelling at the end of the day. But if you don't put yourself out there and put yourself in that position, quite frankly, people just forget what you do, because you're not that important. And no one's thinking about you 24/7. But it's not their job to do that, even though we think it should be your job to remind them, they don't work for you, you work for them. Okay? So therefore, you have to take the earnest here and do it yourself, because no one can do it for you. And if Amy's not doing this in her market, trust me, there's somebody else that is infiltrating it. And that's how competitive real estate is. Everybody's selling the same shit. But there's only one person that I know of now with a VIP club that has their own trucks that has a tool shed a storefront, their own Costco, different home services, you can save up to $10,000 a year on and they happen to sell real estate.And we're the best at connecting buyers and sellers toYeah, yeah, folks, there's a lot to unpack out of this episode today. My I'm gonna do my closing thoughts and let me share hers. But it's very simple. You got to start doing something different, and create the experience that people remember. And your experience then becomes what you mark it. Amy, what are your closing thoughts? Yeah, my closing thoughts are that lifetime lead strategy has changed the way we do business for everybody I've sold my courses to it's changed the way they're doing business. So because again, it's real estate will always be a relationship, a relationship based business. And it will make you sticky to your clients. And it'll make you sticky to your agents, my average agent sells close to 30 homes a year, most of them are above 30 homes a year. And again, my 10 years with my agents is six years. average tenure is six years, so my agent stays. So again, the software I put together makes you sticky for your agents, so you're providing nothing but value. And that's what we need. As brokers and team leads, we need to provide the value of these with the built in leads. And I'll tell you what, my isa has an 8% conversion rate. You know, that's way that's like was it 1% or less than 1%? And ers is on what leads but it's the hook of lifetime home support that they get that why would they go anywhere else? So if they're interested in my course, they can certainly look me up and I'll shoot him out the information. Yeah, why don't you share your website so people know where to go and then we'll get this wrap. Okay, well, they can head out to for the course itself they can just put it out on a Asare academy.com backslash start your VIP club.And then they can reach reach me with any questions just let me stack burger.com are all my handles are at Amy at Amy sack burger real estate.

Mâncatul emoțional este, pentru majoritatea dintre noi, destul de familiar. Nu avem nevoie de multe cuvinte pentru a-l recunoaște. Știm că emoțiile intense și stresul influențează relația cu alimentația. Studiile confirmă că acest tipar, de a mânca mai mult decât are nevoie corpul, ca răspuns la emoții intense este frecvent pentru majoritatea dintre noi și estimează că între 55% si 75% dintre persoane apelează la acest tipar. Deși există explicații diverse legate de aceste alegeri, de cele mai multe ori automate, un studiu meta-analitic publicat recent a confirmat faptul că mâncatul emoțional apare ca răspuns la emoțiile inconfortabile în special în rândul persoanelor care urmează diete restrictive. În perioada pandemiei s-au derulat mai multe studii care au explorat tocmai această relație, dintre stilul alimentar și viața emoțională. Unul dintre acestea, derulat în Italia a arătat că mâncatul emoțional a fost asociat cu stări de depresie și de anxietate, ca o forma de a regla aceste stări. Un alt studiu la care au participat peste 20 000 de persoane din Norvegia a confirmat faptul că îngrijorările legate de sănătate și siguranța financiară au venit la pachet cu mâncatul emoțional. De ce am complicat relația dintre alimentație și viața emoțională? Cum am ajuns să încărcăm mâncatul cu emoții ”nedigerate” și nevoi emoționale neîmplinite, cu scripturi sociale sau transferate din istoria familiei? De ce e așa de complicată conectarea cu corpul și cu ceea ce simțim si cum putem înțelege suprapunerea dintre ce simțim si cum mâncăm. Acestea sunt câteva dintre aspectele pe care le explorăm în acest episod Mind Education Podcast alături de Ancuța Coman-Boldișteanu, fondator al proiectului Emoții în farfurie. Ancuța este psihoterapeut autonom și terapeut de cuplu format în cadrul programului Cuplu Conștient, din cadrul Școala pentru Cuplu și este specializată în terapia traumei, a atașamentului și în terapie relațională. De-a lungul anilor a lucrat alături de persoanele care se confruntă cu provocări legate de propriul corp și de relația cu mâncarea în programe, grupuri de susținere, terapie individuală, de familie și de cuplu. A pornit în această călătorie, după ce personal, a trecut prin provocări legate de relația cu mâncarea. Studii menționate: Bemanian, M. Et. al. (2021).

To say the least, Terry Evers has had a very interesting life. At the age of 13 Terrys father Bruce Evers purchased a Commercial Fishing Dory and father and son took on a new chapter in both their lives. For the next 15 years Terry logged in his journal daily about the adventures, trials and tribulations that he and his father learned and endured as Commercial Dory Fishermen. The lessons that they learned together have been with them ever since. Terry left the business in the early 90's to follow his other passion which is teaching. Since then the Commercial Dory Fishing Fleet has diminished to just a handful of boats and most of those are used as Charter Boats for Sport Fishing. Today Terry has been teaching in Oregon for over 30 years and is still teaching today. He has been married to his wife D'Ann for 35 years and they have to grown daughters by the name of Kelsey and McKenzie. Recently Terry and D'Ann became a grandparents and they have another grandchild on the way. Although it has been many years since Terry has been in a Dory his love for the Ocean is still in his heart. When he finds time he enjoys Salt Water Kayaking and exploring the bays and estuaries of the Oregon coast.

It's a triple play - no, not "Tinkers to Evers to Chance-" but, a spectacular combo nonetheless: Dion (The Wanderer), Jay Black of Jay and the Americans (Cara Mia), and Bobby Rydell (Wild One). Bill and Rich, The Splendid Bohemians, present these titans to you for three cautionary, yet inspiring examples of late-career, Show Biz road warriors. They may have been bloodied, but they were unbowed, and stood in the ring until the final bell tolled.

Ben and Zach are live talking about Wisconsin landing former Oklahoma QB Nick Evers, what it means for the program, why there's excitement, Luke Fickell so far, Phil Longo, the transfer portal, expectations for top-rated QBs, some bowl preview, Dogs and moreSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Why are Wisconsin Badgers football fans so nervous about getting excited about Nick Evers? I talk about why its OK to get pumped about it without going overboard. I also talk about how Luke Fickell is going to enhance what has traditionally made the Badger so good. We break down incoming star defensive back Amare Snowden and why his game is so unique and how he can glide around the field. We talk about how he fits the mold for Luke Fickell and the depth of the Wisconsin safety group. Finally on Locked On Badgers we talk about the bowl game and who should be starting the game at QB? Should it be Myles Burkett or Chase Wolf? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices
We continue discussing the giant news that QB Nick Evers is joining the Wisconsin Badgers football team to play for Luke Fickell. What are realistic expectations for his game next year, and are Badger fans setting the bar almost too high. Is the QB room complete, or should the Badgers be looking for one more player with some experience ? Justin talks about how Evers' legs will be a big weapon when the weather turns sour. We talk about Luke Fickell, has he exceeded or just met expectations during his short time in Madison ? We all agree that he's done just about everything he could do, including promoting the program and bringing in guys to establish the recruiting department. Finally we take listener comments. Why some fans are a little gun-shy about getting too excited over Nick Evers, there is a valid point there. We discuss needs on the team and get further into the way Luke Fickell is approaching this opportunity at Wisconsin. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

DIPLO/THOMAS YOU THINK THIS IS A FUCKING GAME?! SUPACREE THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT IT IS. DIPLO/THOMAS MAYBE TO YOU! SUPACREE I AM YOU!!' DIPLO Reveals The Seer's Stone. Oh, SHIT, Dude. Where'd you get that?! What's this story. No, don't go in there. Oh, look, a story— I told you this was going to be a long night. I was knocking back preworkout at 8 PM exactly, far out of sight from Travis Apple but not entirely out of mind, it was a personal feat to walk into the gym anymore, let alone by his desk—my spirit seemed to have other ideas at an occupation than I myself had formerly thought, but I was at clever best being dissociative now as I was ever, something springing from within me to be let loose, and though it could be, I thought my best to tame it. Professor Zimmerman It's you again… It's always me. So it is. I found something peculiar in a playback of last night's stream of the observatory— (But) How peculiar? Peculiar enough that I thought you might actually take interest. Touché. — I am dead. Oh fuck—he's dead too?! How'd he die? Let me guess—a drag race. Good guess, but no. Was it murder? It's always murder. Now, now, what's this? Don't touch it? What is it? —touch it and see. Ewhe. That's what I thought. Ketamine. Ketamine? Ketamine? Damn; are those two still doing drugs? They're alwYs doing drugs. That's semi-believable. Anyway. Was it a heart attack? Bingo! This is a heart attack! GODDAMMIT, YOU TWO—KNOCK IT OFF. Sorry— —sorry, mom. PROFESSOR ZIMMERMAN is looking through a telescope. Professor Zimmerman! What? What do you want? —my name in the history books; particularly and more specifically for discovering a previously unknown planet and it's inhabitant species. Fair. I meant— —professor Zimmerman— What do you want, from me? It's not entirely unrelated, I promise. Don't make promises you can't keep. Why would I do that? I don't know why women do what they do. That's sexist. It's honest. —no, to just—assume that I'm a woman. [an awkward silence; professor Zimmerman looks up from his studies to examine the short, rather stout, and particularly androgynous student before him] Oh, uh— [beat] I'm a woman. [in relief] Oh! —It's okay. Still, [disgruntled sigh] —it was sexist. Ugh! Anyway— 1.00 mile 10:17 Deadmau5, album title goes here I felt horrible for Brandon, who was eagerly giving his all—but by now physical attraction meant far more than too much to me, my sex drive climbing seemingly by the minute, and my own physique shrinking down into an admirable average, if not above average, by American standards—excluding of course, the Californians, by which standard I was still morbidly obsese as ever, and might as well just pair up with the likes of Brandon, who may have been equally gifted, were it not for his massive weight—then, it was also a selection of genetic particularities that my drive seemed to be fed by—and between the overall unremarkable appearance, it was the bad housekeeping and general disability to take the four otherwise well-mannered children into habitable people—not entirely his fault, and my own arrogance, failing to mention that by now I had become estranged from my own offspring, giving myself a self-entitled badge of abandonment. So I might as well be nothing. If not a mother, I thoughttrapped to myself—but I didn't think much of myself, besides being In some sort of hell, encapsulated and in my own body. What about him? No, that's—that's deadmau5. Well, he's a man, isn't he?! I wish you would leave me alone. — This is scary. You can't just—back up like that— This is too much light. It's not “too much” It is “too much” So that's it? … (Cont'd) That's it? Oh, I know this one. This one's so good What's this one? “The Liight Bringers” Are you sure that was it? Something like that. No. Something like that. NO. Ugh. I hate this. I hate him. I hate this. You always say that. I always hate it. That's not true. Look. I'm not looking. [she walks away] So that's it?! The Cosmic Owl soars in overhead; He is old, he is wise, and now—he is tired. HE?! I thought it was a ‘she' This is the other sides THE OTHER SIDE? [EDC .5] OH. Fuck. This is going to take forever to explain. Yeah. Where's Pasquale? Where isn't Pasquale? Touche. I felt about a hundred feet tall standing next to Pasquale Rotella, and though I would never admit or mentioned it aflojdfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff There he is. —and though I never would admit or mention it aloud, I liked that he was short, overall—as it made him seem less intimidating; I was, after all, rather morbidly afraid of him, as I was of anything at all, for that matter—anything that could or did have the power to make or break me. And he did. I found him. Where was he? Aha. What? I mean, it's a place, but it doesn't have a name, really. Oh really? What place is that? If I knew, I'd tell you. Tell me anyway. No, let him. Where have you been? Again, an outstanding diecotomy; If I could say the words to weave the space and time between us, Then would have, or even, Rather smittenly, I'd sing them With the Melodies I'm making (Like excuses for the work that I'm not doing) Or the worlds I'm still not moving with the winds beneath my wings— The wind beneath my wings. What the fuck is this? I don't know. In the end, we are nowhere Sleepless and still and tight Maybe we shouldn't fall asleep Saving what was left behind Standing outside the chalk outline Beside ourselves in time The only thing I want, is the last thing I need Awake and sleepless as stars shine What the fuck is that? You know what?! Stop asking me! WHATTHEFUCK IS THAT? I STILL DON'T KNOW. Let me see. It's a— Let me see! It's a planet. No… It's a planet, and I'm telling you it's a planet, and it's orbiting a star that's bigger than ours. That's a lot of speculation. That's a good eye— It was annoying but it unwelcome how often I had to stop and write, I knew by now if I didn't write what was in my head right then, it might take such a long time to come back around, even if it was good, that by the time it did, it would be out of context. There was nothing I could do to really save myself, or stop myself—and so I let it happen, and while most people were stopping to text, I was in a way, talking to myself—or even, my highest self. It was too late to find anything good to eat until the next morning, but my appetite had been a ravenous and unstoppable force, swapping out hat should have been a healthy amount of sex with a questionable amount of food. Lest not I forget How deep in love I would be, or How deep in love I was, once, Or will be, once I depart this In the wake of wonder, Dreaming, Slipping not into a silence— There I was, at the end of it, Remembering; Never had I once thought What was just a long lost song Becomes none, Or all of my cut cloth Fuck this nonsense. It's not—nonsense. It's a lot of nonsense. It's definitely a lot of something. — Don't shapeshift into my cat anymore— —don't tell me what to do. Don't do that. It's gross! How is it “gross” It's—my cat! I love cats. Stay away from my cat. DON'T TOUCH THAT CAT. is that a euphemism? NO—just— Lol. It is not possible that meowingtons is still alive. I mean, it's possible, just not probable. — Damn! Fuxk! This is a long ass story! So tell it then. I mean—how?! What is that thing, even?! Ku//Ka Well, that's it. What. I quit. You can't quit. I most certainly can quit. — You're going to risk your entire career on this thesis, My entire career is this thesis. Listen to me. You know I valbue your opinion. Well, then listen— —but I value your scientific contributions more. Just trust me. I don't trust you. Then you don't trust yourself. [she leaves the professor in a hollow silence; he lights a cigarette] I hate that she does that. — We probably shouldn't be using this equipment, guys. What?! Why not?! I don't care. Its—really old. 10 26 I don't care. What the Fuxk is this I think they're coordinates. To fuckin—where?! — WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU? What the fuck is wrong with you!? Nobody quite knows. You're so clever. You're an idiot! I'm not an idiot. I'm a doctor. You're a fucking idiot. I'm Dr. Idiot. Your entire career It's a job. It's your career It's a profession. But, professor Zimmerman Doctor, Zimmerman, now, technically. You're an idiot. I'm running out of synonyms. I had tenure. — 9h my God, just PLEASE stop writing! But if ibstop writint l, you dont exist. Qcrually, i exist either way. Not 5o me. Ita a conceprtional universe. It you can think of it, it exists somewhere! Oh, damn. Yeah. Like damn damn. And the more you write rigut now, the worse it gets For me? For me! The Evers, Who What When Where Why and How. WOW. I know! I just now mafe that connection. These guys are my favorites. Who are they? Cut to: A young, brown skinned girl points to the top of a bunch of pinnaples, and shouts, My brothers! Her mother, pulls her in another direction, explaining sweetly and softly, No silly girl, those are pinapples! She picks up the girl, who latches on around the womans neck and sets ger head down over her sjoulder, staring at tge pinapples as she is carried away. She stares longingly. __ Sit down. Is there any Chinese left? A fortune cookie. Ah, that's good. I walked in locked in; Pistol cocked, and pointed towards my head You'll only want me when you have no options left, Or when I'm dead “It's clever” They all said An ambitious endevour End this life, and be devoured By the miester and the misters of the hour How about now? (Or–) How about Now, or How about Now, or How about Now? Or, How about now, or How about now, or How about now? Or, How about Now, or How about Now, or How about Now? Now or Never I said “That's clever” or “How about Now” What do you want from me? I lie for a living; A literal drama queen, don't eat turkey on thanksgiving I'm the worthless word for Surface level thinking on this Earth, or Picking hearses with my cursor, Mercenary, Mercury, or Just a Mercer–But not a Mercedes; I'm paid, but I hate paying; Made the game, but I hate playing I remember making hate to be created Just for entertainment– A belated invitation, Now i'll face it, Back to Basic– But she's laced with Masonry; A tastemaker, maybe But she just wants a family, Whatever that means Wow. How about now? Fuck this. Homelssness. I woul rather kill myself than stay alive I'd rather die than fight Don't want to write this: I'm just a diamond pressurized And i might never see the light I'll never see the lght I see the light There's no honor in suicide But i've devided my mind a million times And now like dynamite in a mine; Collapsed, collided, ad defined by All divine; You'll never see me shine, But deep inside I'd blind you; Guided by the tide, I've come to find you Down, I dive I'm not alive, you know I'm always misaligned But that's beside the point Another suicide attempt Is in the midst– But just what is it; More than just one, is it? Rather die than listen to Skrillex Or take pills just to chill with it For real? this shit again? It wasn't real, all to begin with It's only mental illness cause i'm penniless Now i've got so much to deal with Another wound to heal, Another deal, perhaps I'll make another million in a year, If i'm still here– And i”m still here– And i'm still– Who are you now, and— Who were you then; And— Which part of this, would you want— Or did want, Or just wanted Pondered before in a vision, Outfitted in hooded drapery, The heaviest fabric; A rosary hung from his neck But can't recall the connection In this ressurection I can recall him, But never remember The calling Let's call him Oh, fuck man. ‘Friar Tuck' THAT WAS IT.

Can I take a shower in your– Take a sho–? [dog grumphs] Uh, yeah, sure. Thanks. *Shapeshifts* Wow, that's cool. It's so stupid. I came in late to the office, so to speak; it had been an off day, after an off night, plagued by what I was sure to be some sort of demonic magic—I was moving slowly, off beat, and irritated—nevermind the lack of energy, as I moved about as steadily as I could—making arrangements for the next trials to come, as it seemed nearly impossible to move ahead, and yet—somehow, I had been given what seemed like one final chance to survive, or not. I had spent the first part of my day, somehow waking with a gust of light, and ready to take on the tasks at hand—then quickly wiped of anything holy in me by the outrageously disgusting hacking and howling of the seemingly-programmed man-or-something-alike, and into a manic-semi-conscious desperation to piece together what was left of my life—seemingly nothing, but somehow still pieced and patched together by music, the overriding theme being that I would be quickly booted out of any position unsuitable for me; and by now, I was just about unsuitable for everything, besides gym crawling and throwing together pieces of literature unlike any I had before seen, as I was, assuredly beginning to look in every direction for other writers which may have matched my style of the then-present day and age, and to my shagrin had found nearly nothing to gawk about, but at the very least had picked up some novels noteworthy in nature, as they had made me laugh, or somehow otherwise caught my attention. Now in my Arsenal, I had one novel, each respectively written by a woman, a white man, and a black man—every book I had otherwise been drawn to written by black women were, upon cracking to open, too-stereotypically black, or about being a black-girl in some kind of way I knew too much about and had absolutely no interest in reading. I had no idea what caused me to look into a world I had all but shut out of my mind—this someone and something had haunted me for months and even growing into years now, first affectionately, but now growing into an uneasy and painstaking, critical list for something deeper. I hated my ex husband for bringing me to this, and, as I looked at the clock at 5:55 exactly, nearly vomited in disgust at the sprawling obsession I would have to somehow quiet—as there really was no halting the plague of tragic recouping thoughts of Dillon Francis at random—now, daily, for quite some time, even as the automatic writing had nearly stopped entirely; I had become entrapped with daily reminders of things I had written, now welling up with spite and anger, that I had even allowed myself the obsession to begin with—especially after what had happened—or what had not happened—with Sonny, whatever way you wanted to look at it. Now; just left with a burning lust and motion sickness beyond my wildest control upon approaching the matter if it all, nonetheless with peaking curisosity, as he had walked in and out if my dreamscape like a picturesque bandit, even hijacking my own sexuality—now almost didn't want or dream of anything else, and with the un presidented amount of ‘decoys' life had thrown at me—Bruno, the bird speaking man from Belgium with the eyes that burned in striking similarity to Dillon's—and then again with Gabriel, the man who had hired me to DJ in the small cerveceria in Mazunte, who could have been his brother'; a dazzlingly handsome, if not perfect near-replica of Dillon Francis, who, by that point, i couldn't even bear to look at, let alone conjure the spark or touch of romance—even after multiple suggestions that he and his girlfriend had just broken up. I never allowed myself for a moment to believe or think that Dillon—or any of the men I fawned after, for that matter, in reality, a very short list—would ever be settled with the idea of me as a perfect fit; no, I sat in the certain reality that I was cursed, living in the opposite exact of the Allison Wonderland archetype—a woman who I theorized may have been Skrillexed and Dillon Francis'd herself—it seemed to be a pattern of hypnotism I was finally wrapping my head around, and even had learned to respect if not envy: I wanted the codes to create my own version of the worlds I had been spun into—and while I would more than likely never be a light skinned, light eyed beauty Queen; perhaps my own kingdom was meant to be of wit and wealth, rather than vanity. Still, headed back Ibto the desert, I found myself scrolling through open guest lists, excited to take my longtime best friend turned literal goddess club crawling, looking for industry and network connections, if not at least a sex partner that could keep up with my needs, now furiously tearing at me from the inside out—as I scrolled, RSVPing for any acts I hadn't yet seen but had heard of, I found myself trailing off in thought and perhaps looking for something I hadn't realized I would stray into; I knew specifically that Dillon had a residency at the Wynn, and —though I also knew I wouldn't be caught dead at this point anywhere I knew he was, or especially stupid enough to pay for it. Now it was torturous, knowing how regretfully physical my attraction had become—understsnding from my interactions with the aforementioned that I was drawn to Dillon for his features—his eyes, his hair, and everything in his silhouette from his jawline, to his lips and brow drove me absolutely wild—however, I had learned about my very fragile psychiatry from my obsession with Skrillex, or with Sonny—neither of which I wished existed, adding Dillon Francis to the list of fictional characters I pushed further into my imaginary incineration box, where I put everything that not need affect my actual emotions or actions; Dillon Francis, a wealthy and talented, very handsome man—could not exist. I wished more than ever that I wasn't dark skinned, that I wasn't heavy set, that I didn't come with a flaming dumpster full of trauma and baggage that no man wanted or needed, but especially not the wealthy and handsome individuals I had spent very much of the last passing years writing about and fantasizing over, finding it respectably impossible to even have flings or sexual experiences without either of the two most rampant figures of my infatuation crossing into my mind and shrouding me with guilt and shame—and yet, here they were, so out of my element that I continued to agree with myself and the universe that it would be dillusinal to think myself a match for anyone so high-achieving. Nothing I could do or say could shake the fact that despite all my efforts to break through, all it had seemed to do was create a broken down individual, ready for enslavement in the working class just to stay housed—my music aspirations both hanging above me, and somehow fading away into the distance behind me. I hated myself. But more importantly, hated Skrillex and Dillon Francis for living the life I somehow thought I wanted and needed. What is the definitive definition of the word Skrillex? Skrillex: noun...right? What, you don't know? I know! It's...a noun...right? Right. Right--- ---Right! Could also be, an adjective, I guess--i? You guess?! You have to know. I mean--- Coughs ain't shit Skrillex ain't *coughs Satan ain't shit Bitch suck a dick Slit ya wrists On ya pissed off Little ass nigga. A loud, abrupt cough disrupted my focus; I was 5-sets-of-8 out of 8 and just feeling my heart begin to pump, as sweat poured from my temples and my sunglasses steamed “Man, fuck Coughs.” Whoever she was, even if it was just one of my infinite inward selves, this was some satanic shit. Now I hated Skrillex—not that it mattered, and as he was a living legend in computer animated music, or whatever voodoo shit he was responsible for that had sparked an entire uprising of revolutionary artists and producers spanning a generation or more—and I was damned-if-I-did, and damned-if-I-didn't love, like, or listen to him; all of which I did, besides the latter higher love by Whitney Houston, God rest her soul, blared over the gym's loud speakers, as I, more than likely looking just as superficially occupied as any basic broad, scrolling away on Instagram or texting her replicas, jotted down the rest of the thoughts that had nestled themselves in my mind's eye, as the coughing, which had followed me everywhere for nearly four years, beckoned to something—searching for purpose if not means to an end. He had Kayla Lauren, a plastic, streamlined representation of the all-American-deem girl, not to mention a “collective” of other broad women of sorts, probably all inwardly clawing just as I had at one time, for a piece of Sonny's heart, or whatever was left of it, after what I could have only assumed to have been a blood sacrifice of sorts, for his placement atop such a steep pyramid of success. What if, every time someone coughed—someone took a picture? I thought about the millions of hacking imbeciles and inbred, backwards savages who had crowded my ears with the putrid sounds of Satan's show choir, a coughing and excessive hellish representation of how the human race had gone awry; If I had been famous, or on my way to it, I would be burgeoned with photographs, as I had been in Mexico without knowing why or how—people sometimes slinking behind their phones as if to secretly capture a candid photo, I myself, pretending not to be aware of it. Cough cough. Ugh. If every cough represented a fan or something of the sorts taking a picture, I almost reveled in the thought—I would have rather had a million flashing cameras at once than to hear another ingrate hacking up a lung in Satan's honor. I was horrified at whatever Skrillex was, and whatever OWSLA meant, though I broadly showcased the tattoo on my inner-right forearm, opposite of Sonny's—the boy I was sure was murdered by the fame monster itself, as Lady Gaga, though admirable, had blatently called it, or herself, or whatever “we” all were or had been once, or would be, collectively at the beginning-and-end of it all. I had seen broadly into the realms of infinity the night previous, and had settled on one, astonishing fact: all of infinitely combined shared a concéntrical center at which at any point could be accessed. Even typing such a concept, I knew it to be life-altering…if I was even alive. To think, I used to hate deadmau5– I hate deadmau5– You know—after that spat with Skrillex. GO TEAM SKRILLEX!!! SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!! who the fuck is deadmau5, anyway. But here I am, decades later. [skrillex] FUCK THIS NIGGA. I needed something to help offset the damage that was done. [someone coughing loudly] Fuck this coughs bitch! [trying on small clothes] Ohh. [kayla Lauren] [sadness] Aww. [dillon Francis] —well how was I supposed to know he was a— STOP RIGHT THERE! I'm...not moving. Yeah, you're not. Uh, okay? You know why? I didn't ask— You need THIS: What is this. I'll tell you what it is [beat] … Okay—what is it?' ILL TELL YOU WHAT IT IS. — Technically, If I do this every day, I can eat whatever I want— Just eat it. No. But I won't. Well, why not? Too Fat For Skrillex. — [C.C. Arrives in the parking lot to find her car has been vandalized...again.] ...Skrillex did this. On Jimmy Fallon. On Jimmy Fallon. Alright, then, kid—it's your dollar. I'll take “Skrillex Did It” for one dollar. But he's halfway across the world! He can shapeshift! Don't be stupid. What—! He's a shapeshifter, for real. We know! Just don't say it! I saw it. We all have. What the fuck, bro— Where did you come from? I've been here. Haven't we all? That's the spirit. What's a spirit? I'm glad you asked. As SUPACREE walks down the street, a man in the passenger's seat is seen to be the Egyptian God ANUBIS, before shifting back into hidden human form. Which one's that? Anubis, right? Googles 'deities' Oh, there he is: Anubis. Good. What's he want? Whatever it is, that's not what I was looking for. What are you looking for? That dark thing. Which “dark thing”? Flashback: That's inside me?! Flashback to Kite at Bass– UGH! Canyon. That's it. That's what it is. LET ME OUT. It's gonna destroy something. She. She–yes–apparently so. CUT BACK TO Fuck you, Skrillex! Stay over there and be Skrillex with your fucking–models–and you coughs piece of fucking–peice of fucking shit, peice of shit. Oh SHIT, who let him in? I mean, it's Skrillex. Yeah, but who let him near SUPACREE? He does what he wants. I heard that. Fuck you, Skrillex. That sounds deep. I guess so. What even happened? Nobody seems to know. Oh. –Except these guys. Who the fuck are you? Where did you come from?! CULT FOLLOWERS Yes–”WHO” Yes–”WHERE” Uh, okay. SUPACREE Fuck this shit. I quit. You can't quit. I just did. Fuck Skrillex. Ah, shit, here it comes. Go ahead, the worst he can do is cough at me and make me homeless. *loud obnoxious coughing* Do your worst. *more loud coughing* Fuckin'. Satan's pet. Satan's not real! Then neither is Skrillex. Amen. (Cult Followers, In unison.) Amen. [SUPACREE exits furiously.] What…the fuck. Pause. Wait, is this marketable? Yes. How? Cause its Skrillex. Skrillex is clickbait. What the FUCK did he do? *COUGHS* I mean, I bet– Fucking–motherfucker. Fuck. Well, now what? Now, nothing. I'mma go get a regular job and see what the industry wants with Jessica. (((Oh, I think you know what they want.))) ((Oh, God Knows)) I thought we weren't doing that bit. We're doing all the bits. MORTY. JESSICA. Oh yeah. Even better. C'esme't sighs heavily, unamused. My liege. Don't be coy with me. I would never. There are hardly any things left you would never do. If not only because I had done them all; But to be coy, with you, my Queen is neither desire or pleasure. You are clever. At your discretion. I began to wonder if I may have looked as miserable as I was, as even though I could not see my own self, walking about in my day-to-day nothingness, the expression protruding from my face felt as if it might look as lifeless as I was beginning to feel, no longer wholly choking back tears but still moving and barely breathing in the awful circumstance of doing and being–I had felt the light itself slowly draining from my eyes, and even things I loved with all my heart could not in any sense brighten this dullness. I felt Godless, and at the very least loveless, lightless, and without my magic, somehow having lost my soul and my singing voice at once. Yes, it was terrible–something was wrong, and I, without becoming the star I had so wanted, was already washing up. Homelessness drained all of what would have been a magnificent energy all together, left to become someone I wasn't sure I even liked, and seemingly cursed, as most recently, no one else seemed to like me either--still, I almost let myself believe something bigger was at play, or perhaps in the works; I had been relocated just perfect walking distance to the gym, where of course rather than look for work which would only urge me closer to suicide than I had been, I elected instead to spend a majority of my time, crafting my days around getting there for the bare minimum of three hours, but ideally closer to 5 or 6, always aiming for 8 and almost-always giving up not because I was too tired, but because I was drenched in sweat, and something like the discomfort of a wet diaper, just wanted to be fresh and dry. God, Help me with this affliction Pick a clip, Flick the bean, And watch Netflix I'm stressin, wet and undressin This sexual tension is serious Salad, with no dressin I'm the lady in the red dress, and yes I write blank checks, so when I go to Heck, I bounce back like, “Yes.” [YES] No pressure, It's my pleasure; I'd rather be in leather than in latex, lathered up Present, or past but honestly, neither matters; Just give this to Marshall Mathers, And a Dad Hat; AMEN Hey Kids, Lets not say “Amen”, After we say hanuss shit, okay? Today, I'm Eminem, so I can finally find Skrillex, And kill him: My mission is to introduce a new religion to humans, called STOP BEING STUPID. Stop Being Skrillex. Well, Alright Then.

Excerpt From: “Blū and The Cosmic Owl” ... ...Having found the fallen owl, he glances up at the sky, just as another shooting star flies by. In awe, he stands at the giant animal, who pants in a tragically cry in pain. He sorrowfully glances into the bird's giant eye, crying as his tears spill into the trail of blood, a sparkling dark purple river, streaked with the silver streams of moonlit tears and the golden gleam of a lucid dream; her dilated pupils reflect all the cosmos, sparkling through the three round dials; some sound, which has never heard or even fathomed to be made, a vibration ringing as it aligns with his light, which also shines now through his dark brown eyes; He is hypnotized, nearly full of light in a state of trance as he begins to float upward, levitating just slightly--A SUDDEN FLASH OF COSMIC LIGHT, as the wounded bird, morphs into a matching [humanoid] being, abruptly changing the frequency from a hypnotising lull, to an ear-shattering, soul startling and painstaking frequency. As they both hover above the ground-- still in levitation, he quickly looks down worriedly, then back up at the being--now matching in age, as The Princess, a pretty poised and painted warrior, adorned with the royally decadent white and purple trimmed fashion, crystals and gemstones of the galaxies imbedded into her sashes. He's enamoured and intrigued, less terrified than excited; however her eyes, now changing a through colors of neon light, reflect her terrified and painful confusion, having been wounded with the weapon of ‘man'--he falls toward the ground, suddenly, groaning in pain, then turning into a fetal position from which he cowers in fear under her. A tear, which has formed in her eye, nearly falls; she forcefully reabsorbs it back into her eyes, as she calms herself down, lowering gracefully to the ground. She crouches over him, thinking twice quite literally, before angrily kneeling over him, yielding a ball of fire out of one hand, holding him by his shirt with the other--he cowers in fear, now--his awestruck chased away by the apparent power of this being; she quickly throws her fireball at a nearby bush, lighting it as he glares at the sight slightly stupified by the fire light, which he likes. A splash of water drenches him from head to toe, blasting off his pink glasses and shattering playful spry outlook with a very grumpy pout, as he stands up, dripping from head to toe. She stands, one leg crossed over the other, another dream of water floating in her hand; as he stands dripping, she blasts him again, with the intensity of a firehose pushing him back. Taking awhile to get back, she waits, meditating by the bush as a campfire, as he, still dripping approaches. She looks out of one eye, unassumingly continuing to meditate as he approaches the fire, which he sits by, as closely and cautiously on the other side, trying to get dry. She looks at him from the other eye, calmly sighing as she blasts him with the surprise of an almost blow dry, which she provides by colliding her hands stretched outwardly towards him; the heated gust leaves him looking somewhat like a freshly groomed poodle--his dark brown hair to match his sweet and gentle eyes, by which, his glasses having been blasted off a third time, he notices as he pushes up on the bridge of his nose, realizing he's lost them again--before he can even (literally) think to retrieve them, they float, guided by her telekinetic twisting of her index finger. BLŪ ...thank you... Still unable to form words, she just gazes at him from over the firelight, sternly searching perhaps, for the way to create a translation between her native telepathic ways of communication, or any of the alien languages--she is unfamiliar with this, though captioned in (several, actually) alien languages, we, as the audience can perceive any of the dialogue just to be "english". PRINCESS Why would you do that?! BLŪ What?! PRINCESS What you did to me! BLŪ I didn't mean to! PRINCESS Mean to what? BLŪ Shoot you!? I-- PRINCESS Why would you ‘shoot' an Owl!? BLŪ An ‘owl?' I'm sorry! I didn't! PRINCESS Didn't what? LOOK. [She appears, even still, to be wounded.] BLŪ I--I never-- PRINCESS Never what? BLŪ I've never seen an ‘owl' before… PRINCESS So you just--!? BLŪ I'm sorry! PRINCESS What were you attempting to do? BLŪ I don't know! PRINCESS You don't know? BLŪ No! I just-- PRINCESS You? BLŪ I...just… PRINCESS You… BLŪ I… PRINCESS … [She appears to be bleeding through the sheath of her bodice.] BLU ...Are you ok?

She lurks down into the dancefloor, hiding in the risers, looking over the crowd to read the room. As she peers into the corner nearest to the bar, she suddenly stops, tipping down the rims of her glasses and squinting sternly, scanning over the large group...she intensely scopes a tall, and lanky brunette hunched drunkenly in the corner, one sleeve of her I'll fitting oversized jacket hanging off her shoulder unevenly. Even from afar, she looks tequila toasted.] SŪP∆ Yikes. [She looks down at her [watch, which appears to be a early version of the Synesthesia Panel] it is 7:35.] SŪP∆ (CONT'D) Annnnnd--the night is young… [She peers once more into the corner, to see the girl stumbling towards the restroom sloppily, hunched shoulders and struggling to keep her oversized jacket "on", over her high waisted shorts, accompanied by black fishnets and babydoll crop top, stomping in her stupor towards the restroom. She thinks for a moment, then exits downstairs intently. Downstairs, She is greeted by one of the stagehands. They PLUR and hug. ] DIMITRI Heeeeey. Happy Rave Dayyy. SŪP∆ Every day is rave day.

(As he catches his breath, he looks up to see a tricolor of gumstucks fanned before him, his eyes light up.] SŪP∆ Spearmint, peppermint, winter fresh. DIMITRI ...ohhhh shittttt, winter fresh…! [He happily takes a stick, as the DJ loops [live sampling] the word "fresh", and they share a dance breakdown; Dimitri finishes his water and starts on his stick of gum.

Here's your local news for Wednesday, November 9, 2022 — Mixed political victories roll in today, as Evers wins a second term as governor and Johnson, a third term as US Senator. We hear audio from the scene of several election night events and the vote totals, as of Wednesday afternoon. We speak with political reporter Patrick Marley, voting issues reporter for The Washington Post, about the outcome of Wisconsin's congressional elections and the narrowly-missed opportunity for a Republican supermajority in the Wisconsin legislature. We hear an excerpt from Marquette political science professor Julia Azari, who joined WORT earlier in the day to break down the election results and the myth of a "red wave" across the nation. Listen to the full interview here. Plus, Madison in the 60s has the news from 60 years ago this month, when urban renewal was in trouble, legal conflicts confused efforts for a public auditorium, and the most famous Black chef in America passed away.
Welcome to the Social-Engineer Podcast: The Doctor Is In Series – where we will discuss understandings and developments in the field of psychology.

The podcast we reference is ‘The Run-Up' from the New York Times. The episode is titled ‘The Maps' and can be found here: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-maps/id1142083165?i=1000583278773 or wherever you listen to podcasts. Join us as we react to the political climate in Wisconsin. We discuss the election of Scott Walker as governor of Wisconsin in 2011 and the consequent emergence of a new style of politics that's best characterized as zero-sum, meaning that what's good for you is bad for your enemies. It began as a movement to strip collective bargaining from workers and continued as a means of amassing power through a secretive redistricting process.Wisconsin serves as a prime example of gerrymandering characterized by ‘cracking' and ‘packing' districts to favor one party significantly over another and in this case it has solidified Republican power. With the ousting of Republican Governor Scott Walker and the election of Democratic Governor Tony Evers, Republicans, under the leadership of Robin Vos, were able to gut the powers of the governor in order to further augment their power before Evers was able to assume office. We will keep our eyes on Wisconsin to see how Democrats are able to push back against Republican power in their upcoming State Supreme Court Race. Most importantly, we question whether Wisconsin offers important lessons for us here in Texas when power is accumulated in one party significantly over the other.What can we learn from Wisconsin and how can we apply it here at home?

Paul Evers is the Co-Founder & CEO of RIFF, America's first certified carbon-neutral energy drink. Paul did some research and discovered a massive problem, 70% of the fruit that surrounds our beloved, sacred coffee beans goes to waste. And this fruit? It's a superfruit (if such a term exists) that also happens to be caffeinated. Paul discovered a way to make a carbon-neutral energy drink from this, helping out farmers, the planet, and consumers in the process. It's the exact kind of idea that I love so much, and it's hard to believe that no one has done it until now. His Oregon-based start-up has already raised several million in funding and has been featured on many of the world's top media outlets. ➡️ Episode Highlights ➡️ https://letsriff.com/
