Joe Rogan finally gets Elon Musk on his podcast

Hands down the most fascinating podcast ever, on the Joe Rogan Experience!

Joe has had many, many, many interesting people on his podcast, from comedian Bill Burr (whom I worship) to free solo rock climber Alex Honnold to lawyer and political commentator Ben Shapiro (hilarious!) to psychologist Jordan Peterson, to former Scientologist Ron Miscavige and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson (which is a real treat!) to celebs like Macaulay Culkin and Mel Gibson, just to name a few. They talk about everything and anything, which I find pretty interesting. I do however skip the ones about MMA fights or whatever, because it’s just not my thing. That said, I thought Rose Namajunas was such a cool cat!

However, the one with Elon Musk is my absolute favorite! It did nothing to alleviate my suspicions that the man is a robot (every time he would answer a question, it legit looked like he was “computing” as opposed to thinking), but I’m a pretty big fan of the guy, quirks and all. Joe tends to interrupt his guests (like, a lot) and usually I think it’s pretty funny, but during this particular interview, I found myself getting pretty annoyed by Joe. I kept thinking “Dude, shut up and just let the man talk”. I mean, Elon Musk has a beautiful mind and I was very interested in what he had to say, but Joe would just keep on interrupting him (typical Joe lol). Anyways, even if it’s not your “thing”, it was a really interesting podcast and definitely worth a listen.

Jeff Evans is an extremely endearing human and prior to the Elon Musk one, this was my most favorite JRE podcast episode ever!

Farewell, Totti

The Olympico Stadium (70,000 fans) was completely packed! The tickets had been sold out quite some time in advance. Roma won and qualified for the Champions League but none of the future games, (Roma or otherwise) would ever fill up the the stadium so completely like this ever again.

The people had come to see “The King of Rome”, “The Gladiator”, “The Golden Boy”, “The Capitan” and bid him farewell…

Roma‘s colors are the imperial purple-red with a golden yellow trim (also the traditional colors of Rome) that represent Roman imperial dignity. Roma‘s emblem depicts the infant brothers Remus and Romulus suckling from a she-wolf (infamous myth surrounding the founding of Rome) which is the coolest football club emblem of all time, in my humble opinion! It makes me think of all those really cool shows (and movies) that give me goosebumps like 300, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Rome, Gladiator and the like,
which makes it fitting that a legend like Totti spent his entire career at Roma (winning a Serie A title, two Coppa Italia titles, and two Supercoppa Italiana titles).

Totti was the top goalscorer and the most capped player in the club’s history. Totti also holds the record for the youngest club captain in the history of Serie A.

A creative offensive playmaker renowned for his vision, technique, and goalscoring ability, Totti is considered to be one of the greatest Italian players of all time, one of the most talented players of his generation, and Roma‘s greatest player ever!

Totti wasn’t just loyal to Roma, he was Roma! Although clubs like AC Milan and Real Madrid tried to woo him, Totti‘s 25 year career (older than some of the players on the team!) was spent entirely with Roma!

The man was a living legend!

What does he get for his loyalty? His hand was forced into retiring. This was going to be his last game for Roma. His teammates were going to wear special shirts marked for the occasion. Each shirt would have ‘Totti 10‘ logo printed on the sleeve, with ‘Una squadra per la vita‘ (‘one team for a lifetime’) written beneath it.

On May 28 7:00pm (local time) it was with a broken heart, I watched the final game (Roma 3 – Genoa 2) the great Franceso Totti would ever play for Roma. I’m still so very broken up about it. Incredibly, incredibly sad…

He gave a very emotional farewell speech at the end.

Farewell, “Ill Capitano”. You are a legend and legends are forever!
