And we've all been talked about OJ from the hole we know from past several isn't. And I just can't believe came up again and it makes me remember. That time and highways and yes although orgies and bronco chase. Which was in June 17 1994. And watch that actually in Washington. And then I moved to Russia. In November. And we bears were November right after the elections because I remember. That everybody is putting the Reza me he's in we have just one house or present as the Republicans have just one in the house representatives. I was not working on an election cycle Newt Gingrich was date. And that whole victory and a everybody recite his all the Republicans are going on just. Going to pick up all the majority staff. Positions and there were great positions there boy I didn't even as I was if I'm disappointed I'm going to Russia could have been working in the house and the leadership is now. Or what stupid timing of this. Boy in my life would turn that a little different this summer. If I decided to stay and work for Newt Gingrich's new majority in the house reviews news. Anyways so I moved to Russia and this whole thing unfolded you know the trial began orgies term begin on January 24 1995 and are gonna paints a little picture and then and you can kind of understandable and I moved into an apartment on the street column all liberal. It's. In the old Soviet Union they used to have all there. And housing is all apartments there's no house's in the Soviet Union except I mean in Russia except outside town. Where Marie has of the color Abacha which usually. A small little small little. I cabin. A lot of times are beautiful big multimillion dollar adoptions for billionaires. But are there out there are no houses in the city it's all in highrise apartment night. Rent an apartment more liberal mind need the Soviets used to group people neighborhoods by our QPH and all the steel workers would live in this area. All the people who worked in the the ministry of foreign affairs would live in this area that way they can all keep an eye on each other. And I lived in the area where the composer's. Composers actors and honest you know singers and you know and you know people and walks to his in this little neighborhood mullah Romans is right in the middle briefings street. Are rid of this spot. And I came in a firm ever to qualify I would I brought him. A big huge boom box is that in that Kabila has experience of finding steer Clinton is fresh out of the wall falling fresh out of before you know being Soviet things were just learned from him. And I brought all my CD's without any cases and couldn't bring wanna start or put him into books. And I had a pretty nice TV. But it wasn't huge just a little woman and I used to watch this. The news on CNN international which we got via satellite on top of my building. And does so CNN international. Was covering this trial very closely that OJ trial. And even though they would break him once in awhile and how for long stretches of discussion you know coming from the courtroom. But really the news was what we're watching. More often and and every about what once or twice a week out have a dinner party at my house was oracle Ellison was. I have actually restored it to look like the aero during when the when the building was put up Boyd scrape down to a the walls down deep in to see what color was and in nineteen you know whatever or one when it was built. And we cult in pain that those cars really nice partner waste our people or we're corkum prost. My my my grandmother gave me great recipe for. Pasta sauce in a Sunday gravy I'd make things like Coca. At two Fey and make coffins of American dishes. And I I shipped and offer issue number hammering our our crab boil for them and they couldn't understand it puts Austin and and and shellfish in the C additional groups that if I think and so I got this kind of like little. Carol cafe culture going on in my in my house with me a lot of different Russians wall across the different creative. Like rock and roll stars because I was doing this rock the Russia things are in an April. And they would come in and watch these different instances that would pop up on CNN international. About OJ and they were cross side couldn't even understand the couldn't understand. How. And you know of the American people we're. How this was happening to OJ you know they they were transfixed like we were about Howell. You know that the evidence was coming our out in the antics of the warriors and and it was completely foreign to folks should they they they were. And these are people like I wrote good friend of mine Sergey reform off who is that the number one blues guitarist of but Villa are rush I'd say he's the Keith Richards of Russia in fact he is friends with key employees with key from the stones when you camp. Really cool and he would come in we'd sit and drink vodka and watch OJ. And he would just sit there and laugh. And how it looks like it and nobody was laughing at how terribly terrible crime that was committed. But the theater of at all and how would this would never happen. In Russia never. Never. I couldn't understand why meet with the wind might never. His book of course I was up to date on with the Russians the Soviets have what it was like to be there in the Soviet times it was still a little bit similar to those days people were tentatively trying to figure out the boundaries of their freedom freedoms. But they could not understand how something could be result in such a public fashion. And that idea of the you know the First Amendment and and the total and complete accountability in absolute transparency. Would bring up actual trial footage but trial of the century. That everybody in from America was riveted to. And by the end of that trial. I would have ten and fifteen Russian friends of mine. Call me up and say so what time of the going live did okay and when to bring beer and they would come over and so every O Jed. Live shot. And every they would come in with the beginning of the evening news on on CNN. A return moreover after work I was the most popular guy in my circle ever wanted to come to my house. Because. We would sit there and eat. I like cajun food that I had me in on my stove with a pitiful amount pitiful available river over the ingredients. And drink vodka and beer and watch OJ. Ladies and gentlemen. That was one of the most the treatment and that picture I just pain if you it's a real. And I look back I don't on that today and remember the conversations of people that would bear. And the and the idea that I was watching on the little TV in the middle of Moscow. If to me it was an amazing experience the one thing the Russians now have the didn't have now. Is a better look at the kinds of transparency we amnesty because they come here all talk. And they go back to Russia and they just they still after all these years. Don't stand a chance to have something like this unfold before their eyes. On on the TV stations across the country and there's no freedom of the press really. Of the way that we know. And still so many years later. This could never happen in Russia I think that says something it was a it was kind of good. There's kind of circus for us over here but the people overseas who were just watching the wall fall and their freedoms expand. Looked at what what we saw this kind of circus and some of a Saudi silly. As as something that they aspired to. And they never got there. Maybe they will. We're right back after these messages here on news radio 930. WBE AM Michael brutal here on news radio 930 WB ENN. In four sandy beach he is off until tomorrow he's a nice long vacation and of those cruises they've put up here on. WB and you when you get to be released senior in buffalo rebuked. You get to go on vacation with all of your listeners. This is something I aspire to. It is at some point in time. They're gonna pick of the keel if I stick around you know and that I'm just gonna insist upon them picking a vacation for me and I just. Trying to put that together in my head I don't know what it is a Grateful Dead tour of debt and company hey great but hey how about a tour Volvo. The Kremlin. Offices. Take your body inside the Kremlin. Bryant and benefit to it at all. You can go and if the sailed on the Moscow river with Michael good knew the rule vote. Which represented Jackie spear throwing tomatoes from from from that side of our mind our pockets get away from if you're gonna talk OJ. You have to talk Dave Chappelle I know that's a difficult connection to make for a moment if you don't have Netflix. But I gotta tell yeah. This in a I mean I'd apparently eight GGS like it it's Chappelle he disappear a logical end. And get chose over the what's important he's with them. You know I allegations allies. I'll with the hole. Now I've could otherwise W central presents itself part came out so well you got have you got it dear members that you gotta check this out. I mean my wife and I rely wife reminded me of it as she walked out the door. Arm because you're talking about a orgy in the reason why my wife knows about OJ I mean she was. I think should and should not younger than you but she was really young when this orgy thing happened she has no idea who uses it. And so what are several weeks ago we found this age of spin to age Dave Chappelle video. On that brand new thing they put our Netflix and Netflix. Production even. He put together I think three different performances. For netbooks I think. Paid sixty million dollars to do this right yeah you tell me. It was part of an flakes stand up thing they got a bunch of stand up comedians the Chappelle isn't really there are this age of spin. It's filmed at the Hollywood palladium much put an interesting article up about it. Are from national review. It was that Hollywood palladium it's really funny really funny. And he goes through a range of topics from OJ Simpson to all those experiences and Hollywood right. And he talks about really taboo topics the you know he used to be able to talk about you know. As a comedian you know you can remember how dirty and terrible Richard Pryor you could talk about anything right now. You chased out of him out of town on Rio we eat. But Chappelle who's been out of line might now for nine on ten years right the guy disappeared after he just had a meltdown ever. And decide to get our Harwood Smart rate. He talks about reap chains gender ism and homosexuality in this presentation at age span it. But he does this thing during the whole thing. First brought the left went nuts they criticize pick and that's what put this article from national review. But during the show he talks about his first meeting with OJ Simpson right. In the armory in the little from the article Chappelle notes that Simpson's soon to be slain wife was with them and everybody in the audience what news. You know it was. And and they reacted negatively for me Chappelle remark he says. Ladies and gentlemen man up you're not gonna make it through the end of the show. And it just goes downhill from there eighty besides that he's going to talk about. The first the four times she's met OJ Simpson and he makes that a theme in the entire show. And it is he ran and OJ clearly wants to like OJ I think we all here in buffalo want to like right. But then of course this this legend of the murder duties. I would say even that we've acquitted. A lot of us believe he's told that it. This really kind of soured our memories of him there were great memories in our department Jack Kemp about about what they said earlier in the show. He had you know it really hard time dealing with this. And but his memories Chappelle you know because you know he would intersect with the guys a celebrity in some of the time after. She was found not guilty you know and he talks about these four I don't wanna ruin it for economic and efforts and check this out but it's is absolutely relevant. At today's it as it possibly could not only is he telling these jokes and they are. Way out there wait wait there you know but. To the liberals got a counter pain he's in a bunch and it of this article national review which are posted on my FaceBook and my court approves something. Huge checked really subtly they were referring to Chappelle's comedy is homophobic trans phobic massage and a stick rants it's like. Kenya go dig deep try and find your sense of humor dig deep well. The social justice warriors they don't find any of those funny because nothing's funny. At some of the things that we've seen the last several months shows that they have absolutely lacking a sense of humor. And and they can't makes them from themselves let alone anybody else and if you can't be funny yourself if you really take yourself so seriously. Wait too seriously you're eventually gonna lose your ability. To laugh at anything. If we can't actors. I mean I I can't believe some of the world. Books of these people have to walk in a march here in buffalo on the east the it's kind of just add water instant protest group. What they way they look the way they act of the protests in fact we had a problem six of them arrested. A federal fund raisers for the reelection of sheriff sheriff Tim hours the other day. That's how both ladies and gentlemen that's the world we live in he can't laugh and apparently they can't shave their legs either. We'll be right back after these messages here and he's ready at 930 WB EN.
