horrible description of you right now because you're like you're doing so many things 0:26 now I mean I knew you when you're doing real estate kind of coming up in the game winning or was it Coldwell Banker 0:32 of the of the of the Year whatever that award was and then now metaverse TV 0:38 shows reality producing TV God I mean what what don't you do what 0:43 kind of intro was that man I'm like your brother come on this is like sitting here on the couch with your brother 100 0:49 so it doesn't matter what I have done this is a me and you Family Feud right here about that go into it a hundred 0:56 percent but the thing is but the people out there don't know yeah don't know who you are they're gonna find out aren't they absolutely what do you want to talk 1:03 about Brian I mean I just got here flew into Vegas you know and uh first off why 1:08 does your setup look better than mine I thought I was in marketing before you but you obviously stunting on me you 1:14 know what I I honestly my team came to me and said hey you know what this is the future content you know we have a 1:20 lot of great clients I have a lot of you know great connections with people obviously like you and really we just 1:26 got to get that content out there and kind of talk about what we do behind the scenes here at SKC um I I know that you you know you've 1:33 been you know very uh supportive you've been you know always you know referring people to me and vice versa you know in 1:39 the business but but realistically you know you asked me a question um uh like 1:45 uh offline here am I going to our basil yep are you going our basil uh you know 1:51 what the older I get the less I want to be around people so I've kind of turned into a Hermit where I just never come 1:57 out unless I have to or it's somebody that has to touch my hand not that I'm 2:02 you know the Dalai Lama or anything but uh you know I try to be uh in my space 2:07 in my head and I try to take meetings with myself because I feel like there's not enough me time so you know the the 2:13 the tie that you knew from the past I was all everywhere flamboyant going this place going that place enjoying life I'm 2:20 still enjoying life but I'm trying to enjoy it more in a meditative State okay all right well well the thing is but 2:26 you're still putting people together I mean you're constantly connecting people together and and only reason why you 2:32 asked about our basil because obviously that that's a huge networking kind of like clout Flex place where a lot of 2:37 people want to go and be seen but really I think you asked me because you know I do a lot of work in Miami and just 2:43 probably more curious if I was going to be there but the answer question yes I'm going to be there the entire time you're one of your biggest clients out there 2:49 right 11 11 yeah I don't even I haven't even seen I mean I think I went there with a trashy girl uh wasn't it like a 2:55 nightclub strip club was a nightclub strip club kind of thing yeah no 100 um so yeah so it opened what almost nine 3:03 years ago now and now it's like no maybe it wasn't maybe it was something else was it something else they bought no so what happened is yeah so when they 3:10 bought the property well when the property was inquired they it used to be a strip club called Gold Rush that's the 3:16 one I went to with the girl Frenchie do you remember that girl she was a girlfriend she took me up to 3:21 her place and then showed me all her nude photos and I didn't understand like like are you a prostitute wait should I 3:26 be saying her name like that maybe I don't know anyways full disclosure anyway she was a French girl and she was like show me her mom was there in her 3:33 hotel or not a hotel a condo I don't even know what it was wait a minute is this like this is like 20 years with 3:38 Romney oh my gosh she took me she took me up to her hotel her mom's sitting there and she's opening up this album of 3:46 all nude photos and stuff like that and I'm like looking to the side I'm like whoa this is so freaking awkward like 3:51 like and the mom's looking in like pointing stuff like you're proud of your daughter that she's doing all this you 3:56 know only fans kind of content back before was only fans even before Myspace and then after all that and then I had 4:02 this two chicks that I was like helping um the other photographer with and then they didn't have a hotel room so they 4:07 slept in my room it was the weirdest thing and I'm like it was just I was like in the I was in the middle like sandwiched in talking about being a 4:14 young man seeing that the Miami lifestyle crazy man well yeah but that was Miami 4:19 like 20 years ago but Miami now is like elevated to like the 10th degree it's like Vegas I mean Vegas you know I grew 4:26 up in Vegas we've obviously spent a lot of time in Vegas um but even Vegas has evolved I mean you 4:32 know it used to be you know going out going out in Vegas was you know going to you know go gamble nice dinner obviously 4:39 strip club nightclub right now it's like you really have to like really plan your 4:44 your entire experience because like you know tables now are expensive Brian when 4:50 I look at you it's crazy we're sitting here in Vegas like where the hell did you even come from 4:56 because for some reason you're always in California you lived in Miami and then we met in Vegas and we had party in 5:02 Vegas it was like the weirdest but you lived in Miami you weren't living here in Vegas like you are now 5:07 yeah well I mean well I grew up in Vegas and then I moved to Miami and I was out in Miami about eight and a 5:13 half years I met you a few years after going there and we met through a photographer and 5:19 um that went to jail I remember being so Starstruck watching 5:24 TV and seeing you on TV with your other career at the time yeah which was uh 5:30 what was that yeah Coast Guard yeah and then I sing on 5:35 TV and you're doing some news interview I'm like oh my God that's Brian so Starstruck Star Strike well yeah yeah 5:41 that was actually uh huh that was a huge um actually considered a huge international incident that was when the 5:47 Cuban refugees were trying to come on to the beach where uh the vice president 5:53 was speaking and it was a whole like huge huge huge thing a big riots broke 5:59 out in Miami over it and everything um you look like Rambo on there you had like a gun and then a whole bunch of you 6:06 know like cocaine everywhere that's not exactly what happened that was definitely another time another 6:12 seizure um yeah that yeah honestly like I was just actually talking to one of my employees about my time on the Coast 6:19 Guard really enjoyed it um you know the good thing about it it actually set me up for how I am now yeah 6:25 and probably like my how my responsibility my uh just dedication loyalty uh camaraderie I definitely 6:34 learned from the Coast Guard um but also I had a lot of freedom I worked one day on three days off so I had like 6:40 on a firefighter schedule for some review that you know know what the firefighter schedules are you know I work 24 hours on I mean how did it even 6:47 meet you now what I think about this these stories right yeah how the hell did Ty Sabbath meet Brian KIPP I met you 6:54 at Paul Miller's house what were you doing there I was because I I was she was teaching me photography so you're 6:59 learning with all these naked chicks running around so so actually so it's so funny you're gonna we're gonna reminisce 7:05 on this one so what happened is I was working I was working in the Coast Guard and it was coming up to Christmas time 7:11 and I wanted to make some extra money so I started I took a job at a part-time as 7:16 a server at a Pizza Hut because I want I I used to work at Pizza Hut in high school so it was easy for me to get in 7:22 and um it was a phone girl there that was drop dead gorgeous and she really know 7:29 how to talk to nobody one day we're both Outback having a cigarette and she goes hey do you have a 7:36 computer and I said yeah I do she's like do you have an internet connection this is in 7:41 1999-2000. I said yeah and she's out she goes well she goes um do you mind if I 7:46 come over I would love to use your computer and I was like yeah I mean she 7:51 just turned 18 I was like 22. I mean and she again drop dead gorgeous of course yeah he can come over to my house so 7:58 really she confided me that her mom did Playboy and she always wanted to be in 8:04 Playboy Hustler Penthouse like any one of those big magazines so we started searching on the internet for a 8:10 photographer or you know ways to get into the business and that's why I stumbled across Paul so William you're 8:17 in the you're you're so you're at Pizza Hut with the phone operator and you pull out this computer no no she came over to 8:24 my house okay and you're looking at nude photos of possible Playboy and you're like hey you look like you could fit this because no she was telling me no 8:31 she told me that this is what she wanted to do yeah I know so she's showing you so it's like the Frenchie incident that I had almost identically except I didn't 8:38 get a free pizza with mine I just got her mom over looking over my back checking out her new daughter so yeah no 8:44 no okay listen it was weird so like basically just to finish that story I reached out to Paul he emailed me back a 8:51 few days later and said hey um uh I'm I'm kind of busy but if you want to take some photos of her and send 8:57 him in I I would be happy to take a look at her so I called A buddy of mine in the Coast Guard that was an amateur 9:04 photographer we went out took some photos of her got him developed at one hour photo at Walgreens went back to my 9:11 house it took forever to upload a damn CD to my computer took me longer to send the photos and I got a phone call within 9:17 30 minutes from Paul and he said yep I got a studio in Boca Raton if you could bring her by on this date I would love 9:24 to meet her Glam models for hire that's it that was it yeah oh my God and 9:30 I was thinking about his uh his screen name on AOL it was poly 08 or something like that Paulie Mill Polly Mill poly 9:36 Mill yep that's crazy now things are coming back right yep because I remember him asking me to hold a reflector and 9:42 this chick is naked that's exactly what happened to me crazy no no so what ended up happening is that so I ended up 9:47 taking her down there and he he goes hey uh will you do me a favor and hold this for Fletcher he gets this girl about 9:52 naked in this like bedroom scene in the studio and I'm going like 9:57 this is what every friggin heterosexual boy in America has been dreaming about 10:03 to be on the set of a Playboy shoot or a nude shoot right right and I'm like oh 10:08 my gosh so we get done we go into his office and he basically said listen uh I I can represent you I can do this I 10:15 can do this and she literally uh told him well no I don't do anything without him meaning me and I'm like going I 10:22 don't [ __ ] know what to do I'm just trying to help you get in front of somebody and honestly I'm just trying to hook up you know what I mean like right 10:28 she started being a nice guy to be there when you're ready to want to go and um the craziest thing about it is that 10:35 never happened but we ended up uh Paul ended up taking me under his wing and 10:40 teaching me everything he knew about photography introduced me to all these other girls he was a nice guy like he was a nice guy but I don't remember what 10:46 happened I think I saw an article or something about how you get arrested yeah all right so I actually just recently talked to Paul 10:52 um how is he doing and can we do the best can we do the best impression how how do you speak like I wanna you know 10:58 how you know that I don't even know if I want to be fun on the podcast this episode out I don't know well no no 11:05 I can't do it again come on let's do it yeah it's in your head you know it no I no I you're it's coming out right now 11:12 come on I don't want to come out right now oh my God so what ended up happening is 11:18 that so Paul worked for many different Publications from Harley-Davidson to Hustler Penthouse 11:24 um but he also did a lot of work for a lot of the local escort agencies so whenever whenever they get a new girl 11:30 they would send him over to Paul's pot a beautiful house absolutely gorgeous and and like literally it was like a 11:36 photographer's dream to have uh photos there so they would literally come over he would get paid a flat rate to shoot 11:41 these girls real quick and then be able to send them back over so they can get them up on the website and start promoting them right well so Paul was 11:49 very um strict about IDs you had to have an ID 11:54 he took a photo with you holding the ID and he took a separate photo of you have an ID well one particular day he had 12:00 three girls come over he was in the middle of another photo shoot it was a last minute like hey can you help me out 12:05 can you squeeze these three girls in and so Paul agreed to it and end up 12:12 photographing the three girls and come to find out one of them had a fake ID 12:17 wow she ended up being 15 or 16. 12:22 she was a runaway and her father was the head of the FBI oh my god 12:29 um in that District like he was like the acting deputy director or something like that so that's like literally like a 12:35 hole in one to go to jail like so so what happened is that Paul's sitting at 12:40 his house one day and he he gets raided by by the federal authorities they they seize Everything Computers photos 12:47 everything um he gets indicted on child pornography he went to jail right he had he had he 12:54 did a plea deal because what happened is that the escort agency guy he ended up taking the huge run of it wow um but 13:02 yeah Paul did Paul did time um poor guy and and the crappy thing 13:07 about it is that you know it was an innocent mistake to anybody would have made he just didn't really look at the 13:12 ID and he took like he's been doing it for years with with his friend and honestly if it wasn't for the fact that 13:19 you know her father was you know probably put the full Way full weight of the FBI on him I don't blame him I mean 13:27 if I'm a father and I had that authority to go find my daughter my runaway daughter but come on dude I mean if you 13:33 are the the head of the FBI right there once you locate your daughter come on that's what you did but that's how it 13:39 sounds no he actually no no he no he found it later that no they raided Paul's house later but they found her 13:46 photo on the internet and then basically tracked it all the way back rated the escort agency's guy's house he said that 13:54 Paul was the one who did the photos because they want to know where the photos came from well you know a lot of people don't realize you know they talk 14:00 about blockchain this and that but photos are really one of the first series of blockchains because actually 14:06 every photo is unique yeah it's Unique and it has a like a serial number it'll 14:12 tell you exactly where it was taken I don't know if you guys have ever seen that but uh it it's it's probably more thorough than the blockchain well it 14:19 actually it came out I want to say 14 years ago like it was like the second 14:24 Apple three Apple three Apple five is when every photo taken from that camera 14:30 and I think all the Google cameras they all have tags on it every camera that sold that camera tells you where it was 14:36 taken everybody on their iPhone right now which don't even realize it it tracks everywhere you wear everything everywhere you've been how long you've 14:43 been on there if you go into your settings and you go on your location this little tip all right it'll tell you how long you've been here it'll tell me 14:49 how long I've been here except it won't tell me because I turned my [ __ ] off but yeah you know I I and it's funny a lot 14:55 of people get freaked out about that I I personally I don't care I mean like I don't care if I'm being like now I do 15:00 turn off I don't allow myself to be tracked but I just basically say you know while the app's being used or you 15:07 know something like that but because sometimes sometimes I I want it on I I need it for for something 15:12 um especially like you know like airplane like you know like my Airlines if you if you have it off it doesn't tell you when when when like certain 15:19 things like if you're if your flight's delayed like it doesn't just send me that notification because you turn it 15:24 off no um how did we ever live without it it it's crazy it's like what it's like what Elon Musk 15:31 says about these things this made us a cyborg absolutely I mean we're literally not saying that we have to like we have 15:38 to have it but I don't know like this would freak me out if I didn't have my phone on me if I was to like here let me 15:45 take your phone unless you already have something like you're on a cruise a destination something like that 15:51 but there's no way that um you know there's no way that you cannot have your phone I mean I I turned 15:56 mine off well except you know I turn mine off and now my Tesla is saying that uh you know it's not connected great 16:03 but but it's crazy like everything you know you know everything involves your phone I mean I mean I was just actually 16:10 showing my staff today that you could literally upload your driver's license onto your phone if you're from Arizona 16:16 Maryland or Colorado now and I believe in in 2024 Nevada is doing it 16:21 um I think California is on on track of doing it Florida's on track of doing it so you know you don't have to carry a 16:27 wallet with you I mean you have your credit cards on there maybe a little bit of cash but what else you're gonna need 16:32 in your wallet I mean all we need to do is have a starlink embedded in our head and we're good while neurolink neural link starlink 16:39 whatever it's a it's starting yeah startling So speaking of Starlight neurolink Elon Twitter thoughts 16:48 um I mean I think that it's a smart move for him I think you know controlling an audience I 16:55 mean he already has Tesla but now if you have Twitter inside your car think about how amazing it will be you'll have all 17:01 your news updates but he's controlling the narrative right it's controlling yeah it is because you can push thoughts 17:08 have you ever looked on Facebook with Mark Zuckerberg and you've said something and the ad comes up well don't 17:13 you think they have the same technology with Twitter um yeah I mean a hundred percent I I 17:18 think those that technology is out there for sure I I actually think that I I think he I think he has a bigger play 17:24 for it um I actually just watched his Baron Institute or Emperor's at Baron Institute um he did a whole town hall and he was 17:32 talking about you're talking a little bit about Twitter and why he purchased it and like where the where the vision's going but it's more of a paywall thing 17:38 it's more of a pay thing and I think he's trying to you know he's like if Amazon can do it 17:44 if Netflix can do it if Apple can do it all these other people can do it why can't Twitter do it with information he 17:50 can I mean yeah there's it's Elon Musk come on he already figured out a payment Gateway from the beginning then he 17:57 figured out a car the car right the electric car then he figured out SpaceX I mean he's covering all aspects and 18:04 then soon to be we're gonna have a global a Global Communications like you could literally be in the middle of the 18:10 Atlantic Ocean and get perfect signal because you're getting it from a satellite satellite 18:16 and I mean you're not going to need your Cox Communication all you know any of your any of your Wi-Fi and none of that 18:23 it's all going to be just here I mean I mean like literally you know it 18:28 makes you wonder is T-Mobile all the all the telecommunication companies are all are 18:34 they all freaking out because literally he's going to basically say get a cell phone tower I don't need a cell phone 18:40 tower we got satellites you know what's funny is I just uh last week canceled my fax number my eFax who uses fax no one 18:48 no but see that pagers right it's all these fads and then suddenly they're xed 18:54 out and we don't think about them anymore but everybody had a pager back in the day including you I'm sure oh 100 right I haven't had a little coaches 19:01 everything then we had our sidekick twos right which we actually got together yeah 19:06 um I I actually remember that and actually that's when I switched from a t over to uh to T-Mobile as T-Mobile was 19:13 the only one that had it then we had blackberries Blackberry was a fad and now we are hooked on iPhones because iPhones have every kind of app and then 19:21 we got off Game Boy game boy went Obsolete and we had everything now on our phones so I mean technology is 19:26 evolving and now do we really use cameras anymore other than the fact we have really amazing 4K cameras on our 19:32 iPhone yeah I mean listen I mean that I think the way of the actual like big cameras are is going to be gone because 19:39 I mean literally you can do it all from here the the flex factor is not there with this but but you remember when the 19:45 iPhone came out the iPhone 7 and then the they did um it was like in cans 19:50 Music Festival they on our Film Festival they had like a whole series of people who made movies with iPhones yeah and it 19:58 it literally you know and now if you actually made one with an iPhone now I 20:04 mean it I'm sure you can still probably tell the difference but in editing I don't think you can in post-production 20:09 you can do all the editing on your phone that's crazy and you can do like the the 20:15 the the the the the captions on there I mean there's people that are are making 20:21 so much money based off their iPhone that's it that's all they have but they're making nothing but you know 20:26 crazy money based off of their their reach and their their sponsors it's insane how much people are making off 20:32 their iPhones oh no absolutely I mean Twitter Tick Tock I mean think about if you think about Tick Tock in general how 20:37 much money is being made off the phone billions oh no billions of dollars are 20:44 being spent because of the phone with the camera well not even that but I mean just the content itself that literally 20:51 you know that people are serving up watching reposting 20:57 you know all every one of those engagements is is a dollar amount to one of these content creators especially 21:03 people that have subscriptions of YouTube and now even with uh Instagram has a new feature now where you can sign 21:08 up and I can I you know I can service up content that's just for my subscribers yeah and it actually lets me know when 21:15 one of my subscribers is trying to message me I think it's genius um I mean this all rolls into blockchain 21:23 yep blockchain web3 now the number one thing that I keep getting the 21:29 misconception um is and I just had this conversation with my father actually is that he goes 21:35 he goes oh it looks like Bitcoin just crashed and it's going bankrupt and I go what do you mean he's like yeah I saw it 21:41 on the TV they had the Bitcoin logo I've been talking about this guy Sam and I go no no this is where the news is 21:49 even ignorant because they don't understand that what what it's not Bitcoin it's cryptocurrency under FTX 21:56 and the ftt coin but not not Bitcoin Bitcoin is actually the only thing it's 22:02 not owned by anybody kinda like there's it kind of goes all together because if 22:07 you're swapping out currency and trading it and selling it off cheaper the price will go down right so that's what's 22:13 happening like you know there was uh it's not just Bitcoin crashing it's ethereum yeah but but the whole thing 22:19 when they put a Bitcoin logo up it's because it's familiar you know exactly it's marketing right so unfortunately 22:26 Bitcoin you know is is gonna it's take the hit because people think of any kind 22:31 of crypto to be Bitcoin I mean that's no stable coin I mean you're right it's like it's like a pair of pliers right 22:37 vice grips that's the brand name right so or Kleenex I mean yeah Phoenix is actually a company it's not actually the 22:44 product but yeah they have a monopoly exactly no no it's the same thing with uh vice grips yeah it's actually pliers 22:51 adjustable pliers yeah but vice grips is a brand name yeah but to get back to the whole like cryptocurrency so you know 22:58 like having to explain this to people like like okay so the metaverse right everybody thinks you have to have Oculus 23:04 Oculus and that's not true um people think that you know cryptocurrency is just Bitcoin and 23:11 obviously that's not true either I mean so there's Bitcoin is the only one that's Community run and Community owned 23:16 right like nobody actually owns Bitcoin ethereum is owned or has at least a 23:22 board of directors Asana and all the other ones but the but really I think where the 23:28 future is coming in so like to get back to the Elon Musk acquiring Twitter for five-time evaluation so someone's gonna 23:35 pay five times the evaluation of a product either has a like a trillion dollar idea behind it or you know where 23:43 I think a lot of people are trying to tie into conspiracy is that oh he's just trying to control the narrative well on 23:50 one platform compared to all the other platforms are still out there I don't think that he can really compete if he's 23:55 trying to just control the narrative let's get back to the um to the metaverse so are you working on any any 24:02 projects in in the metaverse at first off I hate anything to do with the metaverse I think it's all [ __ ] you 24:08 right now yes I think everybody's on that hype that the metaverse that dude we're still here on ground zero in real 24:15 life I think that uh you know some AR stuff will be very cool from our phones 24:20 but is anybody gonna put on some Oculus I don't care you know Ready Player One all those other [ __ ] movies they're 24:26 cool they're fantasy I get it but I think there was an article talked about uh Mark Zuckerberg without wearing 24:33 Oculus I think we're going to figure out how to figure out how to use light mass and to make Holograms come pop out kind 24:39 of like how you saw them back to the future right when he was going through that town and these things popped out in 3D Jaws yeah I think that's what's gonna 24:47 happen but everybody wants to put their focus on something that could or could not be popular my vote is that it's not 24:53 going to be popular at all I think that it's just all fake yeah yeah but the metaverse is not just Oculus though I 24:59 mean the metaverse is just it's just a digital world um that's a metaverse right there buddy 25:05 you're right but but I can still look at it on a computer I I I I've been in a 25:10 metaverse on my laptop yeah and how long do you stay in there uh not very long because there's really nothing there right now there's nothing there but if 25:17 somebody wanted to go on the metaphors I think if you want to talk about gamification I think that's going to be big I think 100 yeah but there's a 25:24 purpose in it you know there's a purpose of going in there you're playing a game you're making something you're making income whatever it is I mean this is not 25:30 gonna be like surrogates I mean you know like where you're like oh hey I'm gonna get the better looking version of me out 25:36 there into the world um and then I'm gonna sit back and get fat and disgusting sitting in my 25:41 cigarette chair you know what I mean the Bruce Willis movie I mean you know I I I 25:46 I I don't think that that's the plan no I I think the metaverse is actually more of just a an ultra reality world that 25:55 people can kind of create their own Avatar of of who they want to be you 26:01 remember that most of the people on on this planet you know and are not don't 26:07 have lives like me and you you know like don't you know what's our life 26:12 I mean like if if tomorrow we wanted to go to Bali yep we could get on the plane to go to Bali we have the means to do it 26:19 by the way I'm uh getting some ethereum right now so oh you're getting this 26:25 about the area yeah right now somebody's sending me some right now how cool is that now see I can be on a podcast and 26:30 actually receive money that's cool but that's not in the mediverse that's in real life I'm gonna get this digital 26:36 transfer to my wallet and you're gonna see a smile on my face not digital let's take a photo 26:43 of course from from Carl oh from Carl from our friend Carl from Monster yeah I 26:49 feel like we should take a photo and send it to him oh I think we definitely should during the podcast yeah first off 26:54 Brian we didn't talk about anything that you've built like what does your company stand for SKC I have no idea what the 27:01 hell that even stands for I should have asked you like light years ago but um what is that it's uh it stands for Sofa 27:08 King Creative Group really suffocate creative and then we and obviously group is 27:15 well it'd actually be grouped right underneath it like did you spell it wrong like Sofa King so so the name of 27:22 that Sofa King creative oh creative sorry sorry creative yeah gotcha yeah so um 27:29 but during the pandemic we rebranded to SKC so a sofa king creative so say it 27:34 three times so [ __ ] creative so and actually it just remember what it would have to be 27:40 like an f and instead of the K like a k like so [ __ ] creative well Sofa King 27:45 I know we're so funny let me hear it Sofa King creative I know but it's not 27:51 so [ __ ] creative that's an F that would be enough yeah so yeah it would be s f c does anybody have 27:59 any that a stone we got to go over some stuff for him so anyway so SKC 28:04 um rebranded during pandemic to SKC group and actually we're now just rebranding again to just SKC 28:11 I you know I think I think everything gets catchy I like this yeah it's catchy he learned all his marketing for me by 28:16 the way uh yeah I I I I I can't deny that I mean I learned a little bit yeah 28:22 see see if you really want to know the back back story is Brian had a really hot designer when I say hot not talking 28:29 about physically hot because he was Asian and looked a little different and not to be you know funny because I'm half asian but um you know so used to a 28:37 certain kind of designer like monster which if you have a name like monster you could only imagine what he could 28:42 look like like a [ __ ] monster like like a monster but Brian knew one of the top designers and uh your guy was one of 28:50 the top designers and I think and Chrisley of course you know who's like well Chrisley and my Tams are probably I 28:56 mean I mean Tams is phenomenal um so yeah I met I met tams in 2000. 29:03 um we both were photographers you know you know the actually so Chris is Vietnamese Mike tamsel is Cambodian uh 29:11 Indonesian Indonesian and then you got the Canadian Carl yep yeah watch AKA monster which you 29:17 would think he'd be like neutral Canada no he's freaking crazy 29:23 um in a good way super fun yeah loved hanging out with him Carlos is different but actually all of them were all of 29:29 them were different and very creative like you know Chris was you know really into CGI that's what his uh specialty 29:35 was and then you got Mike tamsl that was uh he was very clean lines everything he did was very corporate but very clean 29:42 but very loud but he would also he was one of the first people to ever take Flash and embed mp3s and actually made 29:50 flash invites or Flash video or or what we would call now 29:55 um like um um I'm trying to think of what would be that word anyways he would create video 30:01 with with music and sync it all together um but he was doing that in 2001 2002 30:07 when it was still owned by micro media Flash and um and eventually Adobe bottom and but 30:13 yeah I mean he was innovating stuff way back in the day and honestly it was incredible watching him do that funny 30:20 story to Ty and Trump and and to him so we actually me Mike and about four or 30:26 five other people we started a magazine called um um Ocean Drive it was called one 30:33 magazine oh and the number one e and we get we're on going on our second 30:40 issue and we get a cease and assist uh lawsuit if we didn't stop at a 30:46 certain time or immediately we're going to be sued a stupid amount of money by Donald Trump wow because I guess 30:52 Mar-A-Lago had a magazine called one magazine oh wow yeah so we added we had to scrap that 30:58 and we immediately flipped it over to a magazine called excluse which actually really loved the name but I don't know 31:05 what it was I think I I was talking to Mike just recently and I go whatever happened why did we stop doing the 31:10 magazine this is 20 years ago like when the magazine boom was huge and he go he 31:15 goes you know what he goes I just I I that whole like changing the name and the brand it just kind of took the you 31:21 know the win out of the sales I got a couple season assists actually got one here in Vegas from who from Howard 31:27 Hughes Corporation oh well out of Texas oh that yeah they said because of the 31:32 the show idea of selling Summerlin you know that was uh I was on the cover of Las Vegas uh magazine what was it Las 31:40 Vegas Times yeah right and uh they they didn't like that very much because the 31:45 name was trademarked um and I didn't realize that Summerlin uh I thought it was just an area but 31:51 it's actually uh owned by by the Howard huge corporation yeah owned owned Community I mean the things you find out 31:57 but you know they took screenshots everything that I was doing I mean they really investigated me and you know me 32:02 I'm like dude screw them right and I'm like until you get that big season assistant yeah and then I told my 32:08 attorney and I said listen it's all good we all have money here he said no you don't understand they have real money you know so you might want to think 32:15 about this so I looked them up I'm like [ __ ] all right let me just say my apologies like you guys are going to win this no problem you know I don't know 32:22 here's the thing I mean if you're if you're not getting assistance this or even you know or even sued but you know 32:28 but sued with you know with the purpose of stopping something or changing something um no I I got sued by um Hawk star group 32:36 when it was hakasan because so I I got I kind of got the dime that someone was 32:42 coming to Vegas from from London and um I I bought up all the domains so I had 32:48 hakas on Vegas hagasan LV I I bought them all what's wrong with that um well then I took it and I forwarded 32:54 it to my I love Vegas website which was hosting company and they basically said 32:59 if I didn't turn the domains over to them immediately that they were going to sue me for all of the revenue that they 33:07 lost by by because we had a contract with them to provide VIP service so we 33:14 already probably did two or three hundred thousand dollars in table sales and they pay us 20 percent 33:20 there's like 15 or 20 percent and you own their names and they found out they found out was you oh yeah but it's all 33:25 public right and and so you should hit that stuff no I did no no the all the domains were private but I still got a 33:31 season it says wow and here's the funny thing I got a physicist by the attorney I'm not going to name his name that 33:37 actually I know very well and he literally when the seasons just came 33:42 I didn't realize that he'd been calling me from his office phone and who who else is a phone number that if it's not 33:49 in your phone I'm not answering it and he wasn't leaving voicemails for like three days straight and also I get 33:54 served when I was living at Turnberry and um come to come to find out 34:00 um yeah it was so I had to call this attorney friend and I go hey 34:05 um he goes dude I've been trying to call you last three days I had to serve you on this he goes he goes listen you know 34:10 he has just turn over the domains I go hold on a second look I know these guys really well like Neil and Alex and all 34:18 these people that run hakasan group or Angel management back then I'm like I know all these guys and he goes I know 34:24 but but they wanted me to handle it and I go okay so what do you need he oh heels just turn over all these domains 34:30 there's like 12 of them and um and then we'll drop a lawsuit and I said all right cool and yeah because they wanted 34:37 all that back money of all that money that they paid me because they thought that I used their name to gain that so I 34:43 literally just told him he said what are you talking about no I know but you leverage their name it's the problem where you [ __ ] up dude is you actually 34:50 worked for them you had a contract with them and you made money and had their name come on dude no but the thing is is 34:56 honestly probably about 80 of those reservations were relationships already had with people still though no no I 35:02 don't look good but but again you know Lessons Learned you know it's funny see 35:07 you definitely learned from our crew or our crew because I almost bought up coinbase in Europe because it's 35:13 available everything else is taken the exchange and I got an approval from it and I have an Estonia residence card so 35:21 I was actually registering their name and I'm like you know what they'll probably sue me as an American so I'm like you know what [ __ ] it let somebody 35:27 else have that because I almost bought them because honestly if you look at all the other exchanges they they did federal 35:34 trademarks and they did uh um International trademarks but coinbase did not wow so if I pulled it up and I 35:41 showed you that's available I'm like um is that somebody I want to take on not really and on top of that if they if 35:47 they get shut down for whatever purpose I don't want it coming back to me and then me getting x'ed out for their bad 35:53 publicity so it's not a win-win on anything any level so I literally almost bought them coinbase is available yeah 36:00 I mean sometimes sometimes that you have this great billion dollar idea and it's like 36:06 you can't really do [ __ ] with it because a you're worried about that you don't get [ __ ] sued right for anything no 36:12 it's not worth it first off where we're at as a bear Market it does not make 36:17 Financial sense because if something happens to them and I own their domain it's gonna hurt me in my business 100 36:24 you know and on top of that I don't want to go against them because they're pretty big even though Bank of America dropped them 36:30 um you know I think it's uh yeah but coinbase is now with FTX out of the way coinbase is by far though no I think 36:36 it's gonna be great I I have money and you know I have money in both you know but uh I mean obviously one is seized 36:41 you know and I can't do anything with and the other one is coinbase well did you not get your money out beforehand you know what I'm an idiot like that you 36:48 know I just I let it ride I mean the ftt token is still moving you know it's not like they can get rid of it they can 36:54 block it from different exchanges but it's still there yeah so you know I just I just heard that they they have uh the 37:00 new CEO that's in Tech so you know they're not going to let FTX go completely there's two it's in 37:06 bankruptcy but some people buy them out their system still works well their database alone is worth billions yeah of 37:11 course I mean think about all the major players when I look at uh uh Tom Brady and how much money 600 million dollars 37:17 in staking that he had I mean you take a serious loss like that like I don't feel so bad I lost a couple thousand it's not 37:24 like I'm Tom Brady losing 600 million yeah but but the thing is though is I think I think a lot a lot of that had to 37:29 do with with uh Futures and and like uh stock options or corn options for for 37:35 his role I mean the the report did come out and actually said that all U.S all 37:40 U.S account holders were were okay it was all the international people that 37:46 got real we rocked [Music] so I mean it's a shame that I ended up 37:52 like that because I actually really like the system um you know it's just it's hard to believe that he thought he was going to 37:58 get away with that I mean honestly with Amy I just don't see it like what you're 38:03 just going to shut down and think you're gonna you rob all these people and not get you know taken out like crypto is a 38:09 very funny market like that it's like if they hate you they're gonna they're gonna crucify you 38:15 there's no forgiving yeah no I mean when it 38:23 I don't know this guy I mean literally if he planned on doing what he what he 38:28 did and he actually planned that that's what he wanted to do I just can't imagine it empty and uh um uh um MIT 38:35 graduate with two parents pretty established parents that he 38:42 literally had a plan I'm gonna go and I'm gonna create all this I'm gonna Rob everybody of this money and I'm gonna 38:47 take it I'm gonna dump it into the get another conspiracy theory into the Democratic party and all my all my other 38:55 green initiatives and everything else he wanted to do right he donated money all over the world um but I just don't see how you could 39:03 ever keep up with that if you knew that it was a Ponzi scheme or this is worse than Enron I think that he literally didn't know 39:10 what the hell he was doing and he got really bad advice from probably people from that word he was doing I mean but I 39:18 think that there was other special helpers that you know maybe they threatened him who knows there must be 39:23 something more to it maybe they needed this fall to happen for regulations to come in you know but that's my 39:29 conspiracy I think that there was something we need regulation on on that type of stuff yeah because he was trying 39:34 to do the 10 to 1 ratio like our banking system so he was obviously taking money out through the back door and then 39:40 pumping it pumping it up so with these money makers right so these bots so we 39:46 keep the the price like this all the way up and nobody was seeing that the money was missing so but that was kind of like 39:52 the banking system right ten to one ratio yeah no I mean smart though I mean he's smart but he's 39:59 also you know I mean just couldn't keep up with it yeah fraudulents fraudulent I mean I do have one last question for you before we uh because you're right we got 40:05 to wrap it up um oust uh it's house house 40:15 okay yeah okay the symbol is o-u-s-e yeah so it's 40:23 funny because I wear you I for anybody that that follows my social media I wear 40:29 a yellow hat and on the other hat is that logo right there all right and everybody's like what is 40:36 that and I'm like oh it spells o s 40:41 uh oh yes it's okay Hooked on Phonics didn't work 40:46 for him where I got his back anyways great branding great logo um but yeah so tell me a little bit 40:52 about it because I mean you know you were out here about two three weeks ago for the for the for the web three 40:57 conference that win and um I got to meet uh what was her name the one that helps 41:03 it works for you okay yeah Carrie yeah yeah she's amazing and um 41:08 yeah anyway she was telling me all about it and even my own good friend I didn't know anything about it he's like here's 41:14 some hats here's some swag here's this or that and I didn't really understand it other than I saw it on uh was it a 41:20 Tyrone Whitley's shorts when he got knocked out by Jake Paul Frank Gore Michael Lee who's one of the top tick 41:27 Talkers in the world uh yeah boy everybody everybody's wearing uh you know wearing yours so what is this 41:34 uh it's fractionalized real estate that's what it is it's taking uh real estate and putting it uh in the 41:41 blockchain and uh having fractionalized ownership so what we're doing is uh we always obviously have an nft line a 41:48 celebrity nft line but uh we're just making it hip and cool and uh it's kind of like like timeshare right where you 41:55 own a property right and then there's a lot of different people that own that particular property right so that's kind 42:01 of that's the concept is taking the time share but making it blockchain and uh it 42:07 will actually be tied to physical property so basically what you're saying so if I want like if I want to be a part 42:12 of a 10 million dollar piece of property a rental property it'll be tied to income 42:19 properties so what happens if uh what about what about if I own a 10 million dollar piece of property how would I get 42:24 if I want to add it to the fractional real estate before I do that I mean first off as a group a collective group 42:31 we would want to buy that and then we let people buy into it okay so yeah so 42:36 you as a group by the real estate yes and then and then what so who actually we tie it to the blockchain okay and we 42:44 have uh investors that come up and they buy it and then people buy into it and so and if they own so much of it it's 42:50 fractionalized income that comes in that is phenomenal yeah it's a cool concept very good concept right branding you 42:56 know right now I'm I'm sitting back and looking at what kind of regulations so we are uh as us as house Inc so there's 43:03 householding and house Inc uh we've been approved from the Department of real estate to sell property so we do have 43:10 that uh we also are really big into our AR formats so you can actually preview a 43:15 property in AR and actually do a walk through in AR that's awesome yeah so 43:21 we're doing a lot of different things uh that nobody else is doing I think we're really ahead of the game our only 43:26 competition that I saw that was doing something similar uh they're seven years out so I think that we're really 43:31 Advanced and obviously with my experience and the team I'm around I feel like uh you know it's a passion 43:38 project for me so obviously we're going to have a lot of fun with it but when we first came out we hit about 170 million 43:43 dollar market cap and uh I saw some problems with our codes so I pulled everything back in our Marketplace 43:49 actually and I spent nine months rebuilding it and uh then the bear Market hit and so I have not put it out 43:56 along with our bridges so we have bridges that allow you to go from binance to ethereum back and forth along 44:03 with our nfts wow I really sound like one of those guys that sit up on those panels which I never said I was going to 44:09 ever do no but that was a great explanation of yeah of what you're doing because it because you're right you 44:15 haven't been pushing it you haven't been on purpose I wanted to follow 100 because when we almost sold out of all 44:20 the tokens I released remember I only released 28 billion tokens and we had out of the 4 trillion and we we were 44:27 literally right there at the ceiling where for me to keep and going with the trading I would have to buy in it I did 44:33 the numbers of me to release more tokens it would cost me almost eight eight and a half million actually 8.8 million 44:39 dollars for me to open up the floodgates and I said you know what I already know there's some problems let me pull back 44:44 so I did the right thing by pulling back and not letting all the stuff continue to go because I knew that first off I 44:51 didn't put enough tokens out there you know my my you know I own what 90 97 44:57 percent you know uh ownership so you know it was exciting to see you know 45:02 everybody buying into it you know off something that a concept it's exciting to see all the celebrities in it but I 45:08 uh deliberately held off on putting all the celebrities I have because I didn't want the hype together and I didn't want to be a celebrity brand so that's why 45:15 you don't see too many there's people that rock it like Charlie rocket and the other guys from yesterday Rock our stuff 45:21 um you know I think The Branding is really cool yeah for sure but uh you know we we also developed uh um a store 45:27 that you can use our crypto to buy our merchandise like sweaters and stuff like that I bought the the screen printing 45:33 company that does our stuff so we own that um we also have an evaluation software 45:39 that will actually take any of our houses like the on The Meta map that we've developed and it'll give you a 45:44 price guide of which we think it's worth so it's kind of like a Zillow it'll tell you what we believe your property's 45:51 worth and you can just type in the blockchain code right the and it'll tell you this 45:56 is what we estimate it to be worth so we have a lot of proprietary stuff that is assigned only to Aus I think our project 46:02 is going to do phenomenal uh you know when I sit really quiet you know I'm I'm doing something and and you've been 46:08 sitting quiet for a while yeah I mean I'm a marketer man I mean we didn't even talk about the TV shows or anything else I'm doing because it's just uh you know 46:15 well I mean I mean honestly we can sit here for hours and talk about everything I mean we I I I think we dove into the 46:22 past a little bit we obviously talked about the present um but yeah I I consider to talk to you 46:28 for hours yeah I mean the same it's just like we're bringing up memories and whatnot but you know obviously what we've should we make it to an hour I 46:35 mean it's almost like were the countdown's on or should we yeah tied up yeah we should probably make it to that 46:41 he said wrap this sucker up right he's like he's like hey I want to go home this guy these guys are here on the the road Caster just like a podcaster sorry 46:48 Road casters podcast right that's what it is it's both um we're using an A10 mini pro to change 46:55 between all the cameras and all of that stuff and we're using a road yeah Road uh Caster Pro okay yeah so yeah that's 47:02 good so I think let's wrap it up then so I mean first off I appreciate you having me here it was on the whim I said hey 47:08 Brian I'm coming in town and we just set this up randomly yeah well you know it's funny because we actually do all of our 47:14 um all of our episodes well actually we're ramping back up right now and every Tuesday so I've got uh actually 47:21 our friend Ari um I'm actually interviewing her tomorrow um yeah and um but yeah I've got two 47:28 pretty much every week and then we're gonna we're relaunching the channel and uh the really the goal is to educate 47:35 people you know have them get a little bit into our lives um and just kind of learn about like 47:40 what you know you know what we could do one thing we didn't tie into too much was like adding the marketing element to 47:47 to all these things but let me know what your name it stands for so that's that's good marketing that's right Sofa King uh 47:54 was it creative great oh sorry see I don't know so [ __ ] creative so this 47:59 is sofa king creative live oh got it it's smart I like it that's cool yeah 48:05 yeah but don't you think don't you hey don't you think we should say one last thing just joking we're done live from Las 48:12 Vegas we're done it's Monday night all right well thank you everybody 48:18 thanks to Ty and um yep we'll see you next time
