Adam heard from his relatives that he passed over a year ago, Adam has a beautiful analogy equating his 40+ years with that of a gift from the universe.

Adam is really appreciating Lynette’s approval and enjoyment of his remarks aimed at Olga.
Adam is now taking them backstage at the show, how he usually talks with Jay about cars and how they requested he show up at 2:30 despite Simon Cowell not arriving till after 3pm in his Bentley stretch limousine.
Adam says Simon claimed he would come guest on the podcast and he loves cars, perhaps a Carcast too, score Aceman!
Adam is now telling the gang about his kids and how they show love to their parents, he’s on a tangent based off his daughter’s love of the band “One Direction”.

Adam is explaining that he doesn’t think his parents spent any time considering his opinion of them.
Alison is asking how Adam is able to handle the mood shifts from day to day, thinking she would take it too personally herself when she’s a parent.
Adam is now explaining how lucky his children are to have all the advantages and privilege he provides for them so many of their complaints are “cry me a river” in his book, interesting.

BB seems to agree and Adam’s giving his “never the owner’s son” explanation that exemplifies his point.
Adam is explaining the “Tweets of Feet’s” and he’s asking which is it when it comes to germaphobes, are we not in the era of Purell?

Adam is connecting that to the symbolic nature of the messages we’re sending to everyone in society encouraging this lazy narcissism among the populace.
Adam is telling the gang about his date night with Lynette where they enjoyed the song styling’s of the great John Hiatt, Lynette doesn’t know as many of his songs but really enjoyed the show.
Adam is now explaining how some other more famous guys are a little overrated in the song writing department compared to John.
Adam didn’t hear any of his favorite songs during the show, it was probably more of his modern stuff that I really enjoy.
Adam got to visit with John on his tour bus after the show, perhaps he’ll come on the podcast and put the new studio through its paces.
Hooray for Baldywood
