Welcomeback to inside the margins, I'm your host Matt Wilson, all right, so we gota few things that I want to talk about, and I that story about Donald Starversis definitely a good one and it was nice to you were able to pay tribute tosuch a such a good smaritan. But before we talke about anything else, I noticethat you have a new haircut, Patty Youlok, you look at it really good. Wecan't talk about that. An aave e newegle we were, we have OTOMSK W we're goodButyou Kno it IIT's interesting Atal. Before that you know many years ago Ihad Wen, I had a surgery and how or calls after Surgeris have changed andpeople can shower and you know, do all kinds of things buteve. You know Icouldn't do that he period of time and I have short hair anyway, so it's notas much an an issue, but it's interesting what we do to make us feelnormal and so the person who professionally cuts my hair en doing itfor years Sai, yes sure come in I'll, give you AI, wash your hair yea, and Ijust felt after a week of not being able to do that because of povlicansurgery. How good that felt you know. Definitelythe expression is first world problem get it. We only know what it is we knowand and this situation now I think, is teaching a sympathy for for people whodon't have who have other issues, and we need to be more sympathetic to that,but we are still creatures of our own habit right. So so does, if you feelyou know El, you know Mat, you know it e wit Teball going. You can just get the get the playfor Antido that so so. For thatit's not an issue for people. You know you can shave your own beer. Could Ihave done this myself yeah and we would have not been on video eve yeah right,so you know people do that, but I will now me the mask the master ofthe segway with this were talking about something before so. People want to gethair cuts and it's actually it's interesting. My sister lives in Rhode,island and she was telling me about news conference the governor had, andsomebody asked when will those slans open and the governor replied and yourtelling me I need an aircut...

...o that so so she joked about that. But let's use this a talk about somethingserious, Yero, the weather's getting Nason. I believe this the case that, if youtest positive for Covid, you then become sort of in the system and you'retracked and Quarantine, and I don't think they put an able brace fatot nyou, but you need to adhere to certain rules right right. It's it's gettingnicer out. Are People going to want now to betested or cool, knowing that, if I test positive, I am in a quarantine situation for at leastfourteen days. Could I go for a walk and I go ride, myeven by myself an I go for a walk by myself. Could I go ride my biky Couliand if that's the case, if people start thinking that way, do then the numbers become artificiallydeflated and then do we not know how many new cases we have is we startto open thes and now we're being tease wit, only may open things up,manufacturing will start again, so somebody who has been laid off foralone for a while o back to war. This is this great things will open up incrementally an if you test positive to you in asense miss that now, what's our CIPIC responsibility to eachother in a demot yeah weonet, mach op, to get tested in a delacracy fo for thePublican. These are a lot of societal questions that that that are beingasked of ofolks. But I wonder if really now isn't the time to really step up the antibody testing.For a couple reasons, if you have a cobid nineteen test, I don't believe I'm not a scientist,but from what I read nd and heard that test is not going to be one hundredpercent act. Yes, you you record on that, so I could be. I could go for atest today. Test negative a tomorrow become exposed figure. Oh, Ialready had a test, I'm good, be in asymtomaticarry or whatever. Myunderstanding of the anybody test would be that if I tested showd, I hadanybodies, I either have or had the disease the illness, and then I cantake the appropriate step now in the Public Health Commissioner, MerolCounty back, an Licomendoza has often said testing is performed when theresult, I will affect a course of treatment the outcome werve. So I thinkthat anybody testing becomes important because that then affects what you do.What you do with that knowledge. Does it does that knowledge change anything.I understand the knowledge of a positive covid test changes, somethingwhat does the knowledge of a negative test? Does that give a false sense ofsecurity to people? So knowing knowing my anybody status,let's make a bad analogy sure back to the HIV days, knowing your status, youtook, hopefully precautions Rightaa, you stay negative, you were positive,you protected others, that's what the quarantine ISN'n here,you're protecting others, but you know: We've had a few nice days of weather.We will have a. We will have many more actually. Yes, people are getting tired,we're not used to this. I'm not saying it's right or wrong. I'm just puttingthe thought out there will fewer people want a test for the virus at this point and yea people do what isthat going to say, as we start to...

...reopen things? I think it's a very,very valid point, because you start off saying it. This perfectly: We'vealready been quarantine for a while or somewhere selfisated or, however, you want to describe it andthe weather is getting nicer and we are being teased. We now beginning to hear you know just mentions of thepossibilities of things. Opening up and just ha taste of normalcy is whatpeople want and you sai it perfectly with just with the haircut. It certainly is first world problems,but doing things to make you feel somewhat normal makes us feel better.So getting the haircutshaving. When I told you story about me shaving earlierwell before we got out there just doing small things and make yourself feelnormal feeling it makes you feel better, mentally and even physically. So thefact that it's going to get nicer and the fact that we are all going to wantto be outside and you're right, I it doesn't mean that we're going to goplay hoops with our friends, but just for a walk or a bike ride or to gooutside and grill, or anything like that. Just just just things to makeyourself feel you know this is what this is, what I would do in the springor the summer I would be outside. I would do stuff and you don't wantthings to stop you from doing that, because you, because we have been pretty much stuck in our homes in thelast five six weeks and it's Gn and people are not going to want to doanything. That's going to deter that. So I agree I agree with you there. I dothink that that may make testing less. I guess attractiveto people, even even if you feel a little sick, you might. I just got theSNIFFLES I don't want to. I don't want to go that far, yet a make myselfforcibly stay home for fourteen days or more after I get tested, I want to beoutside ind want to play with the kids in the yard. I want to do stuff, Iwould do in the summertime, so you're right. I think that is going to makepeople hesitate to get the tests more and more especially. The big thing thatyou mentioned is that that teas, that Tes, that were getting that hey jobs,maybe opening back up some things, may be coming back that you were not ableto do some businesses. I even heard that there's a thought about opening upmovie theaters, but you know kind of spreading things out so that you can'have a full house, but they may open up the theaters and have get maybe halfcapasiy, so people are spaced appropriately. Do you want to peopleare probably dying to do stuff like that, so so the testing I tinkabsolutely would be swayed because of that that that's just my opinion, ofcourse- and you know Adam Belo, anewo H, other e other dayan. I asked the question because he wastalking about lost revenue. Anthecounty, potentially you know Grantes Olly Einthe first quarter, so you don't know Wenthe's Goin ta open up, but thepotential youknow, the loss of sales tax revenue s in the tens of millionsof tous Ye lots of ofederal Ou government AIDS in the tens of millionsof s. So the question I asked him was, as you want to start opening things up. Do you really need a true sense of whohas had this? And again I mean I'm a dog with a slipper with this anybodytesting sures wil, I'm just gonna Sread this thing, because I think that'sthat's key to this. We have to know how many people had it, how many peoplestill potentially at risk- and I don't think a test for the virus- tells youthe whole picture again, not a scientist, just somebody who plays onein the newspapers so so t that was, if you're thinking ofopening up anthinhes revenue- and these are the people who may be going out tothese places going back to a small mom and pop retailer. Do you need to knowthis their status in a sense to do this?...

I also do not think and regularlisteners will know where I'm going to go with this. I do not think thatmental health concerns have been taken enough into consideration is now. I wasO, I'm two two wevenors for Weben N and a call Inin the past week about thatvery topic and I'm still kind of processing n. In myown mind of what people were saying. One of the things one of the points waswas interesting that some urmc people were talking about. The question wasfor people who always feel they're isolated, for whatever reason has thismade, it mor is conineteen cause Morefa problem for them or Nowatheys, say toother people, Wont Welcome to my World Right Yeahrih. What as been the empathyfor others going through this, so I said Mare, you listeners, know that wyou and im mot have talked a lot about Ma ye yeah, a thing that has been takenenough into consideration. I don't think that has been taken enough intoconsideration in reopening at least what I have seen read and hurt it. Maybe it's just not coming down. You know the Pike Wite tome, but I think that you get public safetyto me is more than just. If I sneeze on you, you know you're going to get sickpublic health is health is everything helth is. Is it is physical? It ismental, it is emotional, it is social, it is environmental, it is financial.Those are the Domain Tho domains of health fo aunt. So, if we're only focusing onmy sneeze, your illness, we're short changing all of help thatjust makes it more complicated. I agree with that too. I saw well. I'vetalked to many people who are usually bright and bubbly and the mostoptimistic people in the world all the things we better will be fine, we'reGoin, Ong get through together and and a lot of their t. Their tones havechanged recently, like I'm now they're saying I'm sad, I'm isolaionas got me alittle depressed. I think, because we're so focused on budget issues whichI get because people have been out of work and we're so far in debt everywhere, it'sridiculous right now and how are we going to come out of that, and Iunderstand that that's that's a priority, especially when it comes to government but you'reright. I think in that the thought processes of the whole economic statusof what Git WHA's happening. People aren't really conterating on. How wasthis affecte people mentally? How are people doing I'm pretty upbeatoptimistic character, usually as well? I'm still? Okay, I'm not I'm not I'mnot anywhereas near being a depressed person, but even I've had moments. Youknow because I because petty's gotten to know me, I'm a pretty friendlyoutgoing. I like to shake hands, I'm a Hugger, I'm that's that! That's that'sthe kind of person I am so being not being able to do that, not being ableto see my friends or give a hand shake or just hang out with some people thatI like for a while it does. It does wear you it makes it makes things tough. I luckily have I live with my familyand that helps a little bit, but I still do miss seeing my parents and mybrothers and my friends and all that, so I I en I can't do that, but and I again I'm a pretty positive prosest and I tan on Atre, saypositive: U, but Pzza people aren't all that way, so people who arealready kind of in a negative mindset how bad has this been on them? How far has it taken him down if you're,already kind of down how much lower as is taking you right, and you know I don't have the answers tothat. I can't I'm not I'm not a counselor and and one of the thingsthat is always. I guess what me is,...

...what I think is the insincere. How areyou talked about this? I E, so you passsomebody on the street or in the grocery store and, and whatever me goes,how are Ya, how you doing and they keep going Yep, and I would when you're,asking somebody that now, if you don't want to stick around forthe answer, then to me don't ask the question because, as you say mad nowmore than ever, you may get an answer Yep and are you prepared for the Waethat Isand what to do with that answer? So I mean obviously, when your friendsask you they are. They are asking you they are. They are well meaningwhatever, but you know jus the stranger how you doing. I take tit as a question that wants ananswer right, Rightyeh SOS gotta care about that. So you know what I substitute withHello Good Morning: It's a Pretty Day, I'm not walking and I pass Itit's apretty day today. I'v Acknowledge You, I see you, I'mgreeding you, but you know. Maybe this makes me sound,selfish, callous or hypocritical. I'm not in a position to help you withif.You tell me how you LAK right. No, it's that's a Valand statement. I actually that I should happen to be believe itor not. I was I was walking about and I'm somewhat recognized where I liveand you know someone someones like hey. I said Hello, how are you and then they?You know not well and I'm like, Oh boy, because you're right, I'm my degree isnot. I have no medical degree whatsoever, so I really can't I can Ican all I can give you as a hang in there or something like that. T Athat's not going to help you so so I you're right. You could be opening up acan of worms when you ask that question Ha. I recently talked to a friend ofmine who is an owner of one of the restaurant brewries in the Rochster area, and fortunatelyshe had to close things down for because of this and believe she'sopening up in a small capacity now she's doing Lak guy, you know, handsfree pick up our delivery services, but she said h'sshe's just been sad becauseyou know that atmosphere, especially if you work in a restaurant or a barorlike that, it's a very social atmosphere and if you're a socialperson and all of a sudden, you lose that social atmosphere it it can wearon you hit, could definitely wear in you. I think we talked about this a coupleweeks ago, so wet all the settles and people think about one of the lessonsof this, and do we look at incarceration and do something about solitary confinement yeah? That's because the funny thing is. I know wedid talk about this. I think on the show, and also off off air before the funny thing about solitaryconfirement in jail. Is it's forty, eight million times worse than this? IsRight because you don't have you don't have the luxuries of cable televisionor just getting up and walking around, or even I mean, even though you can'tinteract Wi people, you can still drive to store or go somewhere. If you wantto that, you can't do that in jail. You literally see nobody, but that ut,but the word who walks trou the wardn but the prison guard, whoever want whowalks b every once in a while and the walls. That's really pretty much hatyou see in solitary and yeah. What does that do you mentally?Because that's that's! That's like this time's, a million. You know yeahexactly so. What do we? How are we going to berethinking an awful lot about the way we live and if we don't, if it's, if it's Great Win, gl back? Oh,that was horrible. That was that was...

...like the wizard that didn't end and I'mso glad now I shoveled ut my drivewy, and I can forget, forget about that. Ithink we missed BU to look at look at things that you know, healthdisparities, that we that we've talked aboutit. How do we address? How do weDDRESS that? How do we address mental health? People in the mental healthcommunity think this has been good is not. The right wordenlightening for people for mental health, because now more people areaware of mental health needs and what is because we have to pay for all ofthis somehow have to pay for covid that billis going to come, do and allthe other things we're not going to be able to do because of the Lat of fund,because we have to pay the bills for COVID. Is Everything just going to getpushed aside again and then what opportunity have we lost yeah andI talked about that earlies show. I do think that, because of the economicdisparity, that Covid is caused, that that's going to be pushed to the front,obviously over anything and a lot of other things are going to be pushtiside or even forgotten, ut, because the focus is going to be about you knowgetting our economy back up and running. So I mean just personal question: How is how is doingthese zoo things, for you? Does that keep you, because you can obviouslywhith your with your friends who have technology. You can do like zoommeetings and stuff like that, and you still have this kind of interaction. I you can see them, butit's not. I mean Henot sitting next, O you in the room does that does thathelp at all? I don't do any outside of work. I don't do any zoom I didn' Do I did want. I did one with aasume conversation. Manyou know it just it Oo. You know who do I I couple neighbors that I walkwith Yohow. We practiced it Diitin sure absolutely Wecanoyo walkand you wer amask or brot hits it's. So I've spoken to a couple of psychiatrists,professionally heyr profession online. Even if I had no, but I was doing somesome morticle. So I talked to a couple psychiatrists and each of themindependently said social distancing is not a greatphrase. They prefer physical distance yeah each of them. It is funny when Iburn it from the first one. Then I've heard it from the second one I textedthe first one as the second one was talking, and I said: Hey do you knowthis guy he's talking about physical distancing is as well so I kind of like that were physically there's a proximity. U You know physically. Our proximity is further apart, butthat shouldn't make us Distan Yep. No. I agree. I think that I should havebeen called that in the first place, because you don't want to and because aphone call social you know, so you don't want to dissit yourself from thephone call yeah that you're right. It's the the physical touching in thephysical interaction is what we're trying to avoid we're not trying toavoid actually talking to people, maybe that maybe now people realize that, butmaybe at the beginning. That was a problem and maybe that led to somepeople's that feeling of isolation by the way Wwhen I joke their profession. If Mine, you know what see, whoever you need to see to to helpyourself through this time. I I you know for years I on off with thecounselor for grief and loss and various things, and we are back on ourschedule and it's helpful to me so definitely find whatever the professionals are,who are going to help you, through whatever difficulty mental health,physical health, counselors, whoever...

...you can find t e Houou talk to you know to do that, but yeah think ofit. I mean, if you're struggling with that, just try to substitute the wordphysical for social, a makes I lest thing I want to ask you before webefore we get to break here after this ends. Whenever it ends,whenever we are back to doing things that we normally do, I wonder how things are going to change.I wonder if people after, even if there's a vaccine that comes out, whichwho knows how on that's going to be, I don't want to think I don't want to putin anyone's mind that that's happening ne time soon, I'm just saying even if avaccine happens and H and and and we found a way to avoid gettingthis in the future, what is the impact on people after this ere people goingto be changed forever or they going to jump back jump right back into allthings where I'm just d? I'm just curious about that. You know I thanpeople ask me that. Would you go to a restaurant? The bad question asked me:I don't go to restaurants much anyway G Y myelfia lot of Fu, so that kind ofthing I do when I go to you know I don't there's a lone of things. I don'tdo that. The rest of the world does e movies ae go restaurants. In occasion Igo out to hear some live music. When I do that again, you know, probably because what I mean, why not you know, take take theprecautions, trusting that the people who again have my health- hopefullythey have all the domains of my health and my nat. Just my physical health andmind ardoing the reopening and saying we can do things in reasonable. You know scientific ways why? No, I don't I mean I don't think we need tohave movie theaters open right away. Before be honest with you. I think thatthat kind of thing- an Wai I wore parttime in a gym that I got to tellyou it's probably going to be one of the last places that reopen simplybecause of there is no way to be physically distant, yeah, that's herfacility. So I don't see that opening for be nice if it open by the fall, but Idon't I'm not holding out much hope that I think it's going to be up toeverybody's sort of riskbenefit tolerance. I don't think people shouldbe sloppy. I still think you know we should always be washing ou hands,yeahbe, sneezing and coughing into into the cook of your elbow ymeane thingshat. You should do all the time right. Maybe this Li go risk o sharing.You know whan to overshare right, you don't want to sell, don't oversharedon't take im from for lother people. That's the great social experiment thatthat's what that's what we don't know. I Tel Yo, something I could be askedwith you patty. I missed the gym. I listen a lot I was. I was doing well atthe gym. I actually just yesterday when went to my doctor just for a routinecheck up and overall health, I'm good, but I am up I'm up a few bounds. I you what's the walking, I mean ableto go out N Walki able to get out yeah. I can, and I do every once in a while,but it's that when I was at the gym I was doing you know I was doing weights.That was doing all types of things and I was there it's for me. What I'm atthe gym is a different mindset than when I'm outside when I'm at the gym.My mind says you're here you need to put in the work you know when I'moutside is like. Oh, it's, nice I'll, think Youl Lusualy walk and I don'tknow how long the walk is. Sometimes it's a decent one. UFFENCE is not, butI've also. I definitely can tell you I'm not eating the healthiest either.So I think I don't know something aboutbeing at the gym. Kept my whole everything focus on. I was Stokinsomeone I was eating in Wasl focused on everything and now I'm kind of like. OhYou, I'm doing a lot of things and a lot of shows are recording just UF fromhome. So when I get a break, I just...

...kind of scarp something down and I getback to work. You know so it's it's. I MISSD te Jim Panny. I missed itso much. I guess now now the personal trainer in me would come on and say,allright. So how can you turn your house into your gem right? How can you?How can you turn the outside into the gym when you go for a walk, you know,Youve got ta do say you only have twenty minutes for awalk. How far can you go in this twenty minutes and then how far the next timeyou have twenty minutes? Can you go you know and and measure some er things?What I owel often tell people is when you're out for a Walkin, theneighborhood, you have lots of landmarks and you can use your treestophone pot whatever.

This is the rock city showcase. Youhave worked with a lot of people, there's a lot of people all across theboard in the local et scene and also at other atmospheres of a hiphop. Youworke Ala ton of people who- or this is pra GNA- be hard foryou to answer that WHO's Ik who's, O your favorite people, Yeah. You knewwhat you know what was coming: Yeahyour favorite people that you worked withbefore yeah. I know man, these interviews, they always make you pickstuff and I know hat you know I really enjoydworking with rex last year, number one because we did a adult wrector togetherin number two, because we did the video for it and I actually got so. You talkabout one of my favorite songs of all Thia and now you know I'm not justsaying that Owa to gash you up mat, because I know that is one of yourfavorite records, but it was cool to to hang out with him and and he was reallydown to Earth and everything- and you know we really kind of spent the daytogether and then actually kind of forgot about it too. We did theshow here up in Rochester last October. So add him up for a showto so you know I kind of built a relationship with him which was pretty dulp because numberone he's an MC that I enjoyed and you know then I was able to do a recordwith thim so yeah but yeah other than that. You know. If I had to pick people,I think you know I'm probably going to pick Gol then, because that's my six,you know I love, I love working with her and every time we have a session,it's Hilarious, because we just go back and forth. You knowasits, really likeait', really like a sibling, sibling thing man. So I always enjoy workingwith her and she's dope. She don't let me down on the Mike, so you know that's probably important aspart of the criteria. So, okay. So ' Let's talk about some ofthe prodest that I've heard no actually before anding old there. I want to talkabout something an I'm, I'm still sad about, because I never had anopportunity relly to take part of, because I was just kind of coming updoing my own thing. At the same time where you were blowing up at Budda- ohyeah, yes, huge and everyone was going...

...to the you had all these shows and allthese different artists showcase at Buddhapub- and I know I was supposed tobe there for one of the there was a forgot- what it was as supposed tojudge something I could know yeah that was th. That was the bee battle. Thatwas yeah and I was like okay next, no matter what happens next, I'm Gona bethere, and then it was over man yeah. You do youmiss that partmenbecause. Ithought there was alot of DP thingshappnat that you know that's a classic example oflike really getting ahead of steam and then just like hitting the wall. Man,because that that just kind of got pulled out from under US man and it was crumy because we got pulled outfrom under US and, like you said it was, it was going for almost basecy abouttwo and a half years yeah. You know we did. We did a ton of shows,we did the MONTHLYS, and then we also did like a lot of one off shows liketdetermine. Reck show to be battled, but more than anything it was, it wasreally picking up steam towards the end. I think you know in the last year,because we did a lot of more. We did a lot more branching out as far asupstate goes and try to incorporate more people from Buffalo, moreconsistent people serus more consistently. You know the goal was always just tobring in more people, bringing all the people that you can and kind of unitethe scene, because everyone was doing doke stuff in their own right. So you know, obviously you know you knowabout buffalo and all the dopecast at e got of their aside from from Brazilda.You know, but them included as well. You know sojust caused todating that scene for so long was really dope to me and I'm gladto be a part of it that wasn't briaht about which, like you said that itdidn't go away or that we had no alternative. No, unfortunately, sincethen we just haven't had a Venu, that's willing to do the same. Give us the same type ofopportunities that we do.
