Yeah. So, so you actually really introduce us to Aiko and why didn't you talk about Aiko and do post one on top to show us, because you actually taught me what ago is. I actually had widely different understanding of it. And I think it's quite important for you to really kind of tell us about this.
Now, uh, valid. I actually, really, I've invited you here because I really need to talk to you, and I feel it's quite important for me to really make you understand why it's so important for me to talk to the artist from Iran.
I do hope that everybody will be behaving nicely, but yeah, do consider it your these, these recordings will be available later for interpretation and so forth and just gonna have to make you so make you know that you will be recorded in the speech. Okay. So let me just roll it. I'm just quickly going to go back to you to just kind of have her explain to us just a little bit more about haiku. Are you okay with that?
Poetry, as I said before, and this is this form is really short, like just three lines and then one and the first line is 5 syllables and next second line is 7 syllables and third line 5 syllables, again SO575 syllables.
So in English terms, it's 5 words, 7 words, 5 words. And then you have to bring in a like a term that defines the season. So like she was saying snow or something like that, that kind of refers to the time of the year that you are expressing this kind of wonderful kind of opinion about. And you also do this thing where you do Japanese and English haiku that can be written both languages. You want to give us an example of that?
Ohh my goodness your your voice is so adorable. I think your Japanese voice is really adorable. I absolutely love it. And you you natural speaking is really great. Pronounced it, but also full of cuteness. I'm in love.
I've just sent you an invitation and uh yeah. So Jado, how are you doing? I just wanted to acknowledge you and learn nula. I just want to acknowledge you as well. Thank you once again for blessing us with your awesome presence. Thanks.
You, you said it best. You know, in this global community, you really travel, you know, you meet different people. You have this this openness of people wanting to know more about your culture and, you know, having these intercultural conversations with each other. And it's really good times. And that's why it's so interesting. Here we are talking to valid, straight from Iran and valid.
Yes, we are. We listening? So tell us about yourself. Tell us how you make these odds. And you said that you're in a wheelchair. Tell us about that as well. You know. Tell us about your experience in life. And we want to get to know you. It's only a small room. I usually do only small rooms. So, you know, there will be people popping in over the night, over the course of the day. The night. But yeah, don't worry. Sit back, relax. You know, and, you know, just chill with us a moment. I want to ge
So, um la Nula, we are looking at valid's artworks and he's unable to really communicate to us. But I do invite you valid. If you understand what we are saying, I want you to try and comment because let me tell you this valid.
Awareness that made me see that Iran really is experiencing an artistic revolution and they are becoming really good and tuning in to the freedom of expression and the freedom of you as an artist having a voice and how that voice can sometimes represent more than you as an artist and it can touch on social economic.
To really show their voice to the world and make it be meaningful. What about after Musa Armeni fades away? What legacy must be there? What changes should have taken effect? What was the role of her life in terms of Iran?
Yeah, I've been Wales, yeah. So you see, this is it. We are all kind of in a global community here. So I've been wheels. Just quickly introduce yourself there, policeman. Tell us about yourself, tell us where you're from. Let us see. What do you see the future of?
And I donated some of the sailing come today to SM, a patient in Turkey. You can check the hash tag. It has a governor's formal permission. He she urgently needs help. I saw it after I made sale and I helped her. Yeah, if we can, we'll something. And we.
Can help people with these income so the web three can work with something. It can solve some problems with this environment ecosystem. For example, in near future maybe open sea or other platform platforms can have the option that when you sell an NFU, choose the donation.
And as you see my collection is about childhood memories and I prefer child charities about childhood education and health services. I donated savethechildren dot ORG and the chart which accepts crypto. It's connected with web three and I will donate more if I can reach 1 interior volume I am on the halfway, I need 4.
Ohh, that's nice. I mean, I was watching quite a lot of anime that I couldn't even count. So we say I'm a bit obsessed, but I don't care. Mostly I'm watching in the normal like English subbed, more than dubbed like a Japanese like dabbled, but with English text. I don't know. The voices are cool and they're breaking more emotion there.
Yeah, I mean I am more likely, yes. I'm from a different country, but I am kinda like interested a bit in the Japanese culture. I don't know, it's really beautiful. I'm watching a lot of anime, some kind of even my bestie was thinking about wanted to cosplay. I'm not a big fan of cosplay, but I do love anime a lot.
I find that so many, um, anime stories are so incredibly deep and complex. Like, sometimes I I think about it for like weeks on end after I finish watching it. Like, whoa, you know, I'm like integrating the story. It could be so, so deep. And a lot of the children's ones.
I just wanna say, you know once long ago I read this story was about this woman who who had this parasol and how she used to go for this wonders in in the forest and then well how this this umbrella kind of parasol just kind of protected her on this journey. And then in the end how she realised that there was this protective dragon kind of painted on the outside.
Yeah, my dad is actually making sushi and hit in our way. Like, at first I was thinking like, OK, that's weird. Like LG. And then like, yeah, I tried it. It was really damn good. It was always like, make sushi, please, more, more, more.
It was actually through being a fisherman that I first had the the money to really invest into the concept of blue to black and it, well, I was a fisherman on the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Ireland and it was quite a wild experience.
Like happened to me. And, you know, a lot of people will say, you know, I'm, I'm, I'm afraid of nothing and all that type of things, you know? And yeah, yeah, yeah. You know, everybody wants to be brave. But there was this time in my time doing that where I really became afraid and I literally got to the point where I told myself.
But you have to save yourself. You know, you have to save yourself. And what happened was, so we were off the coast about 50 kilometers out out on the sea. And so they called us on the satellite radio and like, yeah, you guys have to go back to land because, you know, there's a storm coming. And so on our way to land, the storm already started hitting. So we knew that if we get any closer to the land, then basically we.
You know, and when you hit it, it actually splashes over the boat without even some of it touching the boat, you know, so you're talking about massive waves there. So now the electric pump doesn't work fast enough. So we have to kind of bump by hand in, in terms of kind of just getting more water out and we get each like 20 minutes of doing this, then somebody else kind of takes over from me.
You know you know um, you, uh you know what they you know what they're saying in my country when they see something that it's amazing and stunning, they say this. I am taking my head like I'm going to try saying it in English. I am taking my head off and bowing because that was freaking so cute. Oh my God.
Well, shequila, Dallas, can you, can you sing us a song? It doesn't have to be professional, I promise you. Just give us a little bit of glimpse into your culture and which you, which you would you have a song that you might be like like anybody can sing and that you just got to know you can just sing for us something which you mind doing that? Can you do that?
It doesn't have to be professional just like something song that you grew up with that you know, you can just kind of give us this kind of glimpse into, you know that language, you know, you're kind of own kind of traditional language and how it sounds like, I would love to know.
I feel like if you keep uh, like improving, keep singing, keep toning or whatever that's called, you know, like improving your voice. I feel like you can get to a really amazing place as well, like you have a good voice.
Hey, you're welcome ladies. Glad you enjoyed it. Even blue Tin black was kinda commenting I think he said once that my voice sounded sounds so different. When I'm speaking like my language in English, that's totally different.
Yes, because under 20 sometime before is still, you know, like teenager and obtaining your voice will be more amazing than this. But it's really amazing. I mean I don't know how to spell. They say it's voice more tranny, it's more cook.
Ohh, I'm doing super good. I'm sitting here putting the finishing touches on the latest episode of My web series and it's coming together very nicely. Yeah, this one my dog really has a shining like a starring role in, so I'm pretty excited about it.
No, absolutely. I I got you. So my main, my, my great. My biggest goal here is to use Web three and DfT technology to get to myself, get myself into a position where I can produce feature films. It's been a dream since I was in high school and I moved to Vancouver 10 years ago to get into the film industry. I've been focused on. I mean, I've been working in the industry now for the last 10 years, but my jobs have always been in locations.
In like logistical positions, dealing with car parking permits, garbage, all that kind of stuff. Like behind the scenes and in my spare time I've been doing a lot of standup comedy or events or sketch comedy or different things and.
You know, I've tried YouTube, I've tried a few different things, but this is kind of this like whole web three opportunity feels like a breakaway opportunity to like establish a production house and eventually, you know, get myself into a point where producing films and so on. My way to get there is that right now I'm producing a web series for the NFT community.
Interesting. Do you things are gonna say one I love. I love ambition. It's really I love your ambition towards your biggest goal and I am really hoping to see that. And 2nd, I know it's ridiculous, but I like the only one who's the youngest of them all.
Well, your voice does sound a little younger, I must say. But I mean, it could be just your voice. I would, I probably would have thought you're like you're in your early 20s or something because I don't expect like teenagers being in the space and you don't really see them that often.
Yeah, but. But besides that, yeah, she had to tell her parents. Yeah. But the main thing is, is that you have to know that people are listening. Besides me, besides her, her brother is also listening. And your kids might be listening and, you know, your wife, your husband's listening. And so you really have to consider.
For the whole family, it cannot be secluded. You cannot say that your kids aren't listening or somebody else can't overhear you speaking. You cannot say that. So you have to kind of consider the fact that you're talking to a more more mature audience, obviously. But why not involve the youth, you know? What is so mature about art, you know?
Yeah, so I have bread. That means that you can do us your little bit of a performance day. Would you mind doing us a little performance day place, man, one of your skate, one of your performances. You know, I've been listening to you in spaces here and there, but never do I actually get the opportunity to get anything like this out of you. So please, man.
Grealish. I mean let's go to we can go. Ohh, he's out of here. OK, well it's funny cause I was gonna spend the next 3 minutes talking about Grealish's project, but I guess we can talk about something else. What can I do? What can I do for you? Blue to black? What are you thinking?
So tell us about your stand up comedy acts. Tell us about how that's how that's kind of changed you and how this impacted you, you know, in in general life. And you know, I was the journey been, you know, and tell us about that whole experience. Tell us about what you're doing, how you're doing it. Love to get to know all of that.
Absolutely. So I stand up. Comedy career started many years ago and I'm being totally honest. I wasn't a huge fan of it. I I mean, it's it actually. The open mic stand up reminds me a lot of these Twitter spaces where you sort of you go, you have something you're going to say for your period of time, you wait for an hour, you talk for three minutes and then you're done. And I don't know, it's really.
You get a lot of instant feedback with comedy. That's the problem with comedy is you end up with a lot of insecure people that get into comedy because unlike so music, people can listen and you can't really tell if they're enjoying it or not. Stories, the same thing. But with comedy it's like very obvious if someone laughs or if they don't see you, like right away mid, like the second use trying to make someone laugh, you know whether or not you succeeded and it could be like really like.
Cheerfully, truthfully, I'm not a stand up comedian, but you know, elementary school I used to tell jokes for my classmates when they were feel down and some may like it, some may not, but I was still trying to make them laugh.
I I've tried the drama before. It's it's funny. It seems like sometimes if I try to do drama, people laugh at me. And if I try to do comedy, people get very serious and don't laugh. So maybe the maybe the catches do the opposite of what you want.
Sometimes people think when I'm trying to act they're like, Oh my God girl, what are you trying to be? Are you trying to be like a professionalised or you're just trying to be a drama queen here? Like what's the point then?
One thing I've noticed is that there's a lot of people who are scared to try to be funny or dramatic, and they spend a lot of their time just criticising other people about it. And you know, you got, you got a world full of, you know, what's that saying? Like if you can't do teach, and I think if you can't teach, you become a critic and you just sort of sit there and think that your opinion of everybody else's attempts are more valuable to their attempts. And it's like complete nonsense. That's
And in web tour and and current pop culture there's so many critics, you know, movie critics, music critics, all these different whatever. And we just haven't got that yet in web three. We don't have someone sitting. I mean we got people that are.
Ohh absolutely no. I think that, you know, there's so much and you're not going to get better by thinking about it. You're only gonna get better by doing it right. So you have to go out there as a any kind of artist and put out some bad work or do some bad performances or get a few like bad experiences under your belt just to learn and develop and get better.
Like good criticism that you can actually learn from and develop from. But then you get like you say, those critics who try and kind of criticise people and, you know, like damage, damage their reputation through degree, you know, and I think that's actually just bad.
Yeah, criticism if it's like they're directly to the artist and constructive is amazing because it's someone that's trying to help. But criticism where it's just like, not to the artist, it's like to an audience, like you're not criticising the person, you're telling other people your criticisms of the person. That's not helping anybody, I think.
Um, you know, so. But, you know, that's why the journey of the person is so important. You know the things because we all have different motivations for doing what we're doing. And it can also be an interesting journey to kind of find out like why you, why you like, have comedy as an aspect of your life, you know, like bringing that laughter to people. You know, that's quite, quite a mood changer, you know? And and it's, it's a lasting impact.
