Thing about people room and Al I don't know anything about basketball instruments liberties and stuff. And you know they don't there's just. They're not real fans like Boston. And not. I think it is that's unforgivable thing to say and I know more about basketball in person that ever walked to street in Austin. What's was it when you were a kid there. That attracted you to the game because you are there are a lot of people like you're saying and that they get into the playoffs you by the New Jersey whatever on broke. Out so I'm a sports fans in general they're not happy there and passing fancy what was it we view as a kid. That made you love the games so much. Are really got me an accurate.

When I was eleven years old my parents opt and we moved to Los Angeles it was a formative years and years and moved to LA when I was eleven. I didn't know a soul my new school. And it played a lot of basketball the school that was one of the few white kids in school if Obama's plan passed a law. And they love to make yours and it was no way and I was like my way and to start making friends to get on that court. And start play involves I was at school every day two hours early shouldn't plan ball staying after school plan ball. And I just loved and I fell in love with the game and became Lanka social thing for me. And nicer playing music around that time Q and I just kind of went together like basketball and music and I'm jazz. And funk. And basketball and that was I'd love when I was a kid and its us journalists are things have always kept me sane and and given something to believe and great vehicles for human potential people working together. Making something beautiful. You know hold regional. And it's fun. It always seems I I I describe it like the recycle symbol.

It where you talk about those formative years and you talk about how you were introduced with sports and music at the same time. And I wanted to talk to you about the conservatory. Because it's such an amazing place I was watching on YouTube videos of the design of the new building. And is is that something that you're thinking about expanding outside of LA which for anybody that doesn't know what the silver lake conservatory has won. You sit at the nonprofit music school that I started in silver lake in Los Angeles and it's just you know I grew up in public schools and I was kind of a wild history cared my family and how much money. And I was able to go to public school and get a good music education and for someone like me was pretty wild not a control it was like. A place to really have discipline something to policemen and and something that I just love to do and it kept me go to school otherwise. He could do construed election. And and and and then you know reaganomics. To pass proposition thirteen in 1980 which is here I graduated has school. And pretty much took out all the arts out of schools in Los Angeles so.
