Getting to Know Jennyfromtheblockchain
We've got a trend going at this point, folks. I absolutely love meeting people in this spaceeeee. After watching this person's content on Twitter, Twitch, and YouTube since the beginning of my NFT journey, Jenny from the blockchain (https://twitter.com/jennifer_sutto) is one of the coolest people in web3. In getting to know her, she dove into her NBA Top Shot journey, her incredible sister (should out to Steph), how she got her full-time web3 job; got promoted to Head of Marketing, and continues crushing it with a successful podcast that has reached 100 episodes, and an overall amazing attitude towards this space and life. Just as an FYI, Ed pops in about midway through, since the poor guy got very unlucky with jury duty. Boooooo. Let's get to know Jen!I love making friends and web3 has been one of the most welcoming experiences of my entire life. Not only am I excited to learn more about evaluate after Jen broke it all down, but I can't wait to live trade an NFT with her! If you're looking to learn more about the space, jam with friends, or figure out if there are ways for you to contribute in this space, visit friendswithjpgs.com -- a site that Ed and I put together to help as many people meet other people as possible! Friendship!!!! Have an incredible week and drop us a review on your favorite listening platform if you have a few moments.

Special Lil Nouns Episode!

Special Lil Nouns Episode!
Welcome to the very first special episode of Odds & Ends. You know this show for casual interviews with amazing people, which we will continue doing; but we're branching out with the special episode, for a very special reason:  We were funded .5 ETH to make this specific episode!!! Woooooo! How? Lil Nouns, that's how! Through an amazing program known as Prop House, 20 ideas were funded with 0.5 Ethereum to provide more exposure to the Lil Nouns brand. Now, this is semi-mind blowing for me, but with Moonbirds DAO coming soon, we feel that exposing more of our friends to DAO life is important. There are so many ways to get ideas funded and we've got them all linked in the footer notes. So, this special episode is literally brought to you by Lil Nouns, funding big ideas throughout the entire space... and yours could be next. You don't even need to own a Lil Noun to get an idea funded, you just need to add value to expanding the brand! In the episode, we run through every on-chain proposal that has been executed by Lil Nouns, starting with the most recent (thanks, Al!). It is a fun journey through the diverse projects and ideas that received funding, from a few ETH (thousands of dollars) to large sums that spun off into their own funding opportunities. Our panel for this special episode consists of Ed and Al. Ed: https://twitter.com/bitfloorsghostAl: https://twitter.com/7x7x7ethThey were both AMAZING and for those of you that follow through the episode, a hilarious gem awaits you towards the end as Ed had to deal with some irl nonsense, courtesy of his dog. Thank you for listening. Can't wait to hear your feedback!

Getting to Know Victor Solomon

Getting to Know Victor Solomon
It's time for another episode of Odds and Ends and this time, it is the basketball episode!!! I had the absolute pleasure of talking all things basketball, NFT, and community building with the one and only Victor Solomon. Not only does Victor educate me on the myth behind the NBA logo, he graciously dives into his history as an artist, successful businessman, and literally got me hyped about the potential of his own project. And no big deal or anything... he designed the current trophies used by The Association... the one that Steph Curry was holding this summer... So damn cool. We talk about all that and our favorite basketball movies on this one and it was fun as hell. You won't hear Ed on this one, but he'll be back in action on upcoming episodes. Without further ado... let's get to know Victor...I've got a smile goin' ear to ear after this one, my friends. Meeting people this way has been a true joy and I'm excited to keep it flowing. If you dig the podcast, please leave a review and share it with a friend. Jammin' with Victor was so fun even though I forgot to ask him if he played NBA Jam on Sega, which was a game I spent hundreds of hours dominating in the mid-nineties.... but I digress. There are more amazing episodes coming and in these weeks and months before Moonbirds DAO unveils, we will keep connecting with people from successful DAO projects to keep vibin', learnin' and making more friends. Have an epic week!Victor's Twitter: https://twitter.com/victorsolomonVictor's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/victorsolomon/VesselVerse: https://www.vesselverse.io/Genesis Vessel collection: https://opensea.io/collection/genesis-vessel Odds and Ends is supported by FriendsWithJPGs.com

Getting to Know Mike Elf
Ladies and gentlemen, The music episode! You've heard Ed ask everyone about their favorite movies and we have that here as well, but in our amazing conversation with Mike Elf (https://twitter.com/theMikeElf), we went DEEP on all things music, from albums you really should add to your playlist all the way over to epic live shows. Of course, we touched on Mike's NFT journey, his artistic origins, and the upcoming GHOULS drop in partnership with the Dead Birds Society (https://twitter.com/deadbirds_io), a sub-parliament that he co-founded with a few fantastic humans. All in all, this conversation simply rocks, so slide on your headphones, and let's do this!Vibes! Vibes! Vibes! BIG thank you to Mike for joining us and, as always, Ed for being excellent. I'm literally hyped to listen to some more friends' playlists from my time in this space. As promised, here is Ed's Retrowave playlist. Hit up Mike in Discord or Twitter and keep him accountable for getting us a playlist! He's been to some epic shows. If you think this show is on its way to being epic, why not give us a 5-star review in your favorite podcast app? Could be fun. Thank you so much for listening, enjoy the recommendations, and have a phenomenal week.Album Recommendations from Mike:Shadows Collide with People by John FruscianteBlue Jays by John Lodge and Justin HaywardTrans by Neil YoungEd's epic Playlist:RetroWave -  https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3Aci7iIunGI97tsGOd1qmy?si=575f68983e4f41d1Odds and Ends is supported by FriendsWithJPGs.com
Getting to Know Justin Mezzell

Getting to Know Justin Mezzell
Welcome to another episode of Odds and Ends, a Proof of Update podcast. This podcast is supported by the awesomeness of individuals in the communities we love, such as EightBit, Oddities, Dead Birds Society, Proof, and more! Today, you’ll get to know Justin Mezzell (https://twitter.com/JustinMezzell), the Co-founder and Chief Product Officer at Proof, co-founder and lead artist for the Grim Syndicate on Solana, and simply an all-around nice person, attentive father, loving husband, and friend to the show. He opens up to Ed and Craig in ways you may only previously have seen within the token-gated Proof Discord, so we know you’ll enjoy this deep dive into the person that brought life to Moonbirds, one of the most popular NFT pfp projects in web3. Now, without further ado, say “hi” to Justin…Big thank you to Justin for joining us on the podcast. It was incredible to get to know the person behind the bird or oddity picture on Twitter and Discord. While we’d seen him via Future Proof and other company-focused communication, this conversation was more about the man himself, rather than the fun things he’s built. We enjoyed learning about Justin and if you did too, please subscribe to the podcast and share it with a friend. Of course, if you’re able to leave a review, that’s even better! We hope that Ed and Craig will see you LIVE on either a Twitter Spaces or within the Oddities (https://discord.gg/proof) or EightBit (https://discord.gg/eightbit) Discord! Have a great week!Odds and Ends is supported by FriendsWithJPGs.com
Getting to Know Ishita

Getting to Know Ishita
Welcome to a special episode of Odds and Ends, brought to you by Proof of Update (bitfloorsghost.substack.com), the only daily newsletter you need for everything important in PROOF and beyond. In today's episode, I get to introduce Ed to Ishita (https://twitter.com/soulcurryart), an exquisite artist and friend I met over a year ago. Her work changed my perspective on art and in this very episode, she opens my eyes yet again, teaching us about her work and broader themes in a way that gets me hyped. Ishita's brand, Soul Curry Art (https://soulcurryart.com/) touches art within many mediums, from print to canvas to NFTs and more! Her work has been collected all over the world and Ed and I are fans, plain and simple. Friends, it's time you meet Ishita.Can't thank Ishita enough for the conversation on all things art. I had no idea that Ed was going to purchase his first art NFT LIVE on-air. It was fantastic, fun, and something that hits home for me, because, as I mentioned in the episode, I found Soul Curry Art at a time when the pace of NFTland was nearly too much and Ishita's work grounded me. I'll always owe her for that! I loved that conversation and all these amazing people we get to speak with. If you're enjoying it, subscribe wherever you list to pods and leave us a review! Tell a friend! Why not? Don't forget to subscribe to Proof of Update, the best way to stay up to date on PROOF and more. Enjoy your week!Odds and Ends is supported by FriendsWithJPGs.com

Getting to Know Phraze
This is a milestone! Welcome to our first, extra special, super jam-packed, birthday episode! That's right, it's my birthday today and my present to myself was having an epic conversation with Ed and Phraze (https://twitter.com/phrazeart), an epic person who engaged with us in a way that made time melt away. This is our longest episode yet because it is THE SNEAK PEAK episode, but also THE DAD EPISODE, but also the JAM-PACKED JAVA episode. Phraze is wonderful, Ed is ebullient, and I'm just over the moon that I get to connect with fantastic people, all the time. If you haven't yet, say hi on Twitter, I'm Classic_Craig or in the PROOF or EightBit Discords, where I hang out regularly.

I hope you enjoy getting to know Phraze as much as I did.Wow. Wow. Wow... the conversation with Phraze was simply next level. I feel like the connecting threads in our lives -- all three of us -- was just something special. Really, really, really loved getting to know Phraze and I hope you did too!

Getting to Know Praetor
Dang it, I love doing this show because the people I get to meet in this space are incredible. First and foremost, Ed was under the weather, but will absolutely be back in action as soon as he is back to 100%. I love Ed. It’s known. It is also known that Proof of Update is the single best resource for Moonbirds, Oddities, and PROOF daily information on the planet. These are simply facts. Subscribe today (bitfloorsghost.substack.com) with the link in the show notes. I also love Praetor (https://twitter.com/praetor_eth) an incredible individual who happens to also be one of the Community Managers of ZenAcademy, an amazing company built on the foundation of education in the web3 space. Praetor took us through his background in web2 from the finance side of things all the way to his love of art, Legos, and Pulp Fiction. From start to finish, this conversation was fun as heck. This is Getting to Know Praetor. Is that an awesome human or what? I love these conversations. Getting to learn about cool people in this space is very fun. I’m semi-addicted to it. If you want to get to know more awesome people, too, why not subscribe to this podcast? It’s available wherever you listen to podcasts. Now, if you got this point, you likely listened to the entire episode. If you dug it, a review would really help us get it out to more people. If it wasn’t your cup of tea, no worries. Hit me up on Twitter (Classic_Craig) or Discord with your feedback! I’m here to grow and learn. You have an excellent week! Odds and Ends is supported by FriendsWithJPGs.com
