When the Dead Show up at Your Doorstep...
"Off this sort of off the wall Friday. I had to start off with this story, and it was returned, their headline was returned, earned to sender. And what has happened here is a special liberty of something, but a Brooklyn based indie rocker got a package of it had to be an indie rocker, okay? Of course. I love how they threw this in here. Is a package of cremated human remains belonging to a stranger in the mail and was stun when the funeral home that sent them initially told them it wasn't their problem. This guy named Hamilton let Hauser 44 frontman for the popular indie punk band, the waltman, was gosp activity when he opened the cardboard container and found the ashes inside in another playing cardboard box. It would just kind of shocking. The remains were Martin. Now get this, giants. The remainings were October 7th, 2017. So those have been floating around. Well, it's interesting. 7 years. It had been shipped to the current resident of the studio apartment. Out in east Williamsburg or wherever this app. Anyway, he tried to call the funeral home and straighten things out. The owner was extremely unhelpful. He said something like, it's your problem now. And actually hung up on me. The story hung up. Asshole, I love how they did this. Let it slip that after no one came to claim the remains. He tried to ship them to a man named Robbie, or possibly Ronnie, who may have lived a teacher in 2017.
Left Media Tries to Separate Joe Biden From Hunter's Laptop Scandal
"NBC MSNBC news okay And this is what you should expect from all of them right now They've had to admit that they lied to you and they have to admit that this laptop is real And now what they're saying is well there is no story here In any of the stories about any of this that suggests that even had anything to do with his father What is the endgame other than humiliating the president's son Let's be clear about what she just said MSNBC just said that there is and I'm going to read from the transcript here okay She says that there is nothing there That would connect the ties the present to any wrongdoing That there is nothing there And then this Washington Post reporter with The Washington Post behind him at their TV studio at The Washington Post with all that credibility responds by saying this I mean that may be in the endgame You know because we've spent a lot of time with the laptop and we've looked a lot at it and there isn't much that ties the president to any wrongdoing Which I think is got to be the focus for it to be relevant to be before a congressional committee is to look at Joe Biden and the presidency and there's nothing at least on the laptop that illustrates that So I mean for there to be something they would need to broaden this out and introduce some sort of new evidence that hasn't been picked over And I don't know what that is
The Origins of 1979 Horror/Sci-Fi Classic 'Alien'
"Story, I watched making of documentary as well. So this thing is born because of Dan o'bannon helping John Carpenter in this super cheap comedy science fiction movie darkstar that utterly flops and he's horrified. He goes to the movie theater the author watches nobody laugh at it. The whole thing crash and burns. And then he says, okay, I'm going to flip it. I'm going to go from sci-fi comedy to sci-fi horror, and then they have this idea of the chestburster. And then what happens is this unforeseen confluence of HR Giga, this weird sexually obsessed, clearly from his imagery, Swiss artist, who is so obsessed. I mean, his imagery that becomes the imagery of the xenomorph, in the making of documentary that I kind of forgot. This guy who, you know, if you're the designer, you paint a few pictures, and then you sell them to the studio. This guy was on the set, sculpting. He was on the set molding. This guy was in it the whole time obsessed with getting it right. Yeah, and when you can get somebody of that caliber to come in and put that much effort into something, this is the result, you know what I mean? I just don't think that we have the same caliber of artistry in pictures today. Just because there's so many projects being made at once, right? Let's say one project wants a great art director, okay? They get them. The next project wants a great cinematographer. Back then, you had so few big budget projects made that when you got one, it was possible to get the best of the best in a variety of areas. And I think they just got, in some ways, they just got incredibly lucky with this picture.
Bart Herbison and Doug Share Stories About Elvis
"And I share a my birthday in his death day. August 16th. August 16th, he died on my birthday. And I told the story the other day on one of the podcasts about my next door neighbor Beatty, who, again, lucky you loved Elvis and everything and she came running across all my birthday party. He's dead, he's dead. He's dead. We thought it was. I mean, I thought of her husband and died and it was Betty talking about Elvis and died. And so, you know, the sharing this. So the last part where they actually showed real video of him in those last concerts where he was bloated. He was there. I mean, some of those actually, those are memories are not memories for me. Those are actually, I saw those concerts. That's all. So it was really, really interesting to just see. Well, one last Elvis plug and a story. Peter go around a controversial author. And he was very controversial when he wrote to John Lennon book and the Elvis book too. There's two Elvis books, careless love, and last train of Memphis. There are over a thousand pages, and they're so thorough. It's like he was in the room, so he tells everything good, bad and different. And I particularly love a lot of the stories he told in the famous RCA studio B across the street from my headquarters. And here's one. I got the privilege of knowing Chad Atkins a little bit. One of my mentors, the late Joe Talbot, took me to launch at a place called I forget what it was mauds down on music grow. It's not there anymore. And chat was there. They had a standing launch every Friday they were in town. I couldn't make this up. He sit there playing his guitar at the table quietly. And I looked at Joe and he goes, that's why he's Chad and he plays everywhere. So Chad is the only major artist I've ever heard of that wanted a closing act. Chet went to bed at 8 o'clock if he could. 8 30, he was a country farmer, got up in the wee hours, three or 4 o'clock in the morning. And so Elvis is showing up late or wants to record at ten, 11, 12 may not show up, sits in their place gospel songs all night, and he can't stay awake at 2 o'clock in the morning. So he calls Elvis's team and RCA and goes, look, I like the kid. And at that time, Nashville did not embrace Elvis. They threw him off the grand Ole opry. They didn't know what he was. But Chet liked him and saw that he was about to change music, but he said, I don't care. 11 o'clock tonight, I don't remember if it was four or 5 songs we do them and we're out.
California shooting hero honored at ceremony
"The man who authorities credit with stopping another mass shooting in Southern California has been honored. At a Sunday ceremony carried by K ABC, Brandon say was given the medal of courage by the Alhambra police department. After a gunman killed 11 people at a dance ballroom in Monterey Park, police say the gunman entered a dance studio in Alhambra, video shows 26 year old Brandon say struggling with a gunman and disarming him. Most of the victims I knew personally, they'd always come by to dance studio, and I consider them Friends. They says he hopes the families of the victims will be able to heal and eventually find joy again. I'm Donna water
NFT Brand Doodles Acquiring Animation Studio Golden Wolf
"Earlier this week, NFT collection doodles announced that they had acquired Emmy nominated animation studio golden wolf. The two companies had previously worked together on the announcement of doodles two at NFT NYC last year. Golden wolf has worked with companies from Nike to Facebook to Gatorade to Disney to PlayStation and Adidas. As part of the announcement doodles Twitter account tweeted this marks the brand new chapter for doodles as we continue to expand the franchise. Narrative storytelling, worldbuilding, and character development will be at the center of everything we do. Doodles founder Jordan Castro also tweeted about the acquisition. We've always wanted to break out of web three's bubble and reach billions. Golden wolf's world class team has done just that, excited billions with animation. Expect storytelling without constraints and AI animation generation R&D soon. We're buying not selling. As per the deal golden wolf will continue to operate independently though in close collaboration with doodles. The golden wolf founder and CEO Inge erlington has joined doodles as chief content officer focusing on running studio operations while building out the next wave of the doodles brand. Animator Denny bright writes doodles acquiring an animation studio like golden wolf is insane. Like you don't understand how big that is insane. So what exactly does this mean? One of the things that's been clear for some time is that many of these NFT collections saw their trajectory as effectively pre selling character IP that would find its way into other mediums. In some ways, NFTs would look like alternate shared ownership of IP. Basically, they allowed the audience to become a pseudo owner and have more active participation in a creative project. We've seen versions of this with collections like the board apes, who launched their other side metaverse, and now with this acquisition, doodles looks a bit like a media company moving from idea phase to execution phase.
Sheriff: Gunman who killed 11 didn't know dance hall victims
"Investigators say they still don't know the motive behind the weakened massacre that left 11 people shot dead in a ballroom dance hall in Monterey Park, California. Los Angeles County sheriff Robert Luna says the 72 year old suspect had no known connection to the victims and investigators believe he had not frequented the dance studio in the last 5 years at a Wednesday news conference carried by K ABC, Luna said investigators did locate a motorcycle, a block from the crime scene that was registered to who can trend. Investigators believe it was placed there by the suspect as an alternative getaway vehicle. The sheriff says investigators are not sure how long tran had been planning the attack. I'm Donna water
Kevin McCarthy Kicks Schiff and Swalwell Off Their Committees
"Kevin McCarthy and you Speaker of the House coming out guns ablazing shift the most mendacious individual on Capitol Hill kicked off the committee, Eric swalwell, who strangely can not say the following words. I never slept with a Chinese intelligence officer. He can't say that. It's so strange he's been kicked off to you heard. What Kevin said about Devin Nunes, the former chairman, while he's with us right now, in studio, what a fabulous fabulous guest to have. Chairman Nunes Devin explained to us how egregious, can you put meat on the bone of what Kevin just said about shifts chairmanship? Well, look, if you go back, I mean, all this time that he's been there starting in 17, he knew I was out there publicly saying that, look, there's no evidence of Trump and Russia. There's none. And he would say things continually like, oh, they're just covering for Trump. You haven't seen what I've seen. I've seen the evidence. I can't talk about it. But I've seen that more than circumstantial evidence, he said at one time. He had so many variations of all of this evidence that he had supposedly seen, and then we would go out and say, no, that's a lie. And you know, at that time, you know, we had everybody against us. I mean, even a lot of the so called conservative outlets were even kind of attacking us, right? At that time, and the reality was, is that I always said this, and it's still baffles me. That the one crime we knew that was committed early on was the leak of general Flynn talking to the Russian ambassador. He's the incoming national security adviser and there were 9 sources.
Monterey Park Community Mourns 11 Victims of Mass Shooting
"I find it quite interesting. And I don't want to belabor the point of this shooting in the violence that had gone on in the last few days in California, especially the 12 people who were murdered at the hands of a deranged man, 72 year old man. And I don't want to say his name because I don't like to give these people too much credence. However, this was a very unfortunate situation right now, there is no clear motive. There's been indications that he could have been targeting his ex-wife. There's indications that he could be targeting the certain event because of whatever malice that he felt in his heart, some articulate that he had this blank stare. You have to be a complete lunatic to shoot and kill that many people for no apparent reason. It's not like a heat of passion situation where you have a person getting upset and going off the rails in an instantaneous act of violence. This is someone who pre planned this particular situation and then waited for the event to unfold at the star ball room dance studio on the lunar new year, which is the Asian new year. Waited for that to commence and then he opened fire and began shooting and killing people. He killed multiple people. And then before killing himself, now this could have been a situation where he was upset with his ex-wife or it could have been something a little different. I mean, nobody knows specifically. Obviously, his ex-wife isn't here to tell us a story, and we don't really know what his motives were. But I think that we'll find out soon. The media, in my personal opinion, this is why you can't trust the media. Because they are not going to be honest if it's not conducive to pitch the narrative that they want to pitch. If it's not going to pitch their narrative, I don't think that they're too interested in this. There's not going to be riots in the street. There's not going to be a conversation about Asian or Asian violence. About Asian is the new white supremacy. There's going to be no conversation whatsoever about this. When we have two Asian situations or Asian people committing heinous acts of violence in the span of a few days,
Sheriff seeking what drove 'mad man' to shoot up dance hall
"Authorities in California continue to search for a motive behind Saturday's mass shooting at a Monterey Park ballroom dance hall that killed 11. Ellie sheriff Robert Luna says 72 year old who can tran had a rifle at home hundreds of rounds of ammunition and appeared to be manufacturing gun silencers. Tran killed 11 people at the star ballroom during lunar new year celebrations. What drove a madman to do this? We don't know. But we intend to find out. The sheriff says there are many theories. There's information out there that the suspect may have committed these crimes and I'm paraphrasing due to jealousy or some relationship issues. Tran went to another ballroom after, but Brandon Shea wrestled the gun from him. Some of these people I know personally, they come to our studio. It's a tight knit community and hope they get killed from this tragic event. Police say as they closed in on trans Sunday, he took his own life. I'm Julie Walker.
Gunman in Lunar New Year massacre found dead; motive unclear
"The sheriff in Los Angeles County, California says investigators believe the gunman and Saturday night's mass shooting tried to attack another location, sheriff Robert Luna, says about 20 to 30 minutes after the gunman killed ten people, and wounded others at the star ballroom dance studio in Monterey Park, he walked into the lie lie ball room in the nearby city of Alhambra. He was disarmed by two community members who I consider to be heroes because they saved lives. This could have been much worse. People at the scene say the gunman fled in a white van.

It’s so Much Easier to Destroy Than to Create
"Things going well, I'm back at the home studio in the police state of Southern California of California. I'm in the free state of Florida. It's actually difficult to go back, and it's difficult emotionally for me to even say that to you because when I moved to California, in my 20s and the 1970s, I felt I was moving to the best place in America. Just three and open and beautiful, everything, and the left is ruined California, just as it ruins everything it touches. There is no exception to it. I'll give you a little example of the difference between the left and conservatism. By accident, I spilled an ice coffee about 20 minutes ago. Here in my studio in Miami and it took 20 minutes to clean up the mess and it took three people 20 minutes, I might add wonderful people to run for a very grateful. And it made me realize, well, I mean, I always realize it. But it just embodied one of the most important things you could know about life. How much longer it takes to construct than to destroy.
Joel Gilbert Describes the Obamas' Terrorist Ties
"To Joel Gilbert, he's been on the program before talking about the same thing we're talking about now except now you're in the studio and here with us in New York, you are a an LA based filmmaker, president of highway 61 entertainment. You've made a ton of films. You've made some mockumentaries, which I'd love to talk to you about another time. But the film we're talking about now is called Michelle Obama 2024, her real-life story and plan for power. And you were just touching on something that I remember, the only person talking about this back in 2008 was Sean Hannity. He did some research into the obamas, and he uncovers this stuff. And you think there's no way they're this radical. This is actually really scary. The news they refuse to cover the fact that the obamas are very close with people who are domestic terrorists. I mean, we're not making the term up. This is scary stuff. So talk about bernadine dorn. Yeah, what's pretty well known by now is that Obama was very close to Bill ayers, who was one of the heads of the weather underground, the SDS and the 60s, the terrorist emeritus, but what's not known is that Michelle Obama was very close to bernadine Dorne. Bernie, you know, really was the head of the weather underground terror group. She was accused by Larry grath wall of actually planting a bomb that killed a police officer in San Francisco. And she was waging a war against police. Now, Michelle befriends her at the sidley Austin law firm when she gets a job there after Harvard, and it's bernadine Dorne that taught Michelle something called the politics of fear. And this is the theory that we're all afraid of each other. All Americans are afraid of each other, and we have to get past that fear to heal ourselves. And you heard Michelle word for word, repeat bernadine dorrance, politics of fear on the 2008 campaign trail, even in her books today. She talks about fear and getting over fear.
Unpacking CES 2023: Where Was Web3?
"How is CES? How is a consumer electronic show? What did you think of it this year? I didn't make it, so I'm really curious if web three was everywhere, or if it was anywhere. Great question. CES was a little bit of both. One, there were some amazing people, great conversations that were had. We interviewed, I think almost 20 people and did a bunch of great Sessions on stage. And so that was fantastic. The thing that I was most interested in is how much web three was not showing up on the show floor. For anyone who hasn't been to CES, it is really an expo show. It is a 1 million ft² of demo space for people to show off their new wares. There was like 15 foot holograms of Mark Cuban. There was all of this amazing sort of gaming and VR tech and haptic tech that we saw and tons of autonomous cars. But when I kept looking, I was like, oh, I'm not seeing much web three here, which compared to when you go to a south by Southwest or a can or even art Basel. You see what three almost everywhere? Here it was kind of missing. And so I'm just, I was a bit surprised because I thought I would see more from not being there, but seeing the news, what was your takeaway? Yeah, well, I was thinking about going and I've been to CES a bunch of times before. This year, just timing didn't work out. So I was following along the news. I was really excited to see what Raja for Mastercard announced with Mastercard's web three accelerator. They're doing that in collaboration with polygon studios, which I thought was really cool. That seemed to be sort of the biggest web three announcement in news, but a lot of what I was seeing was more hardware developments like L'oreal, unveiled some new technology on the applicator phase for people with accessibility challenges. I thought that was amazing. I didn't see a ton about web three though, outside of Mastercard's announcement with polygon.

Julie Hartman Describes Her Nexus With Dennis Prager
"Julie. So you're invited by my wonderful friend, my rabbi, to just sit in and listen to his show in studio in the heart of darkness that is Los Angeles. What happens next? Well, it was during a commercial break, and we were chatting and really hitting it off. And Dennis said to me, you know, Julie, your story of going from liberal to conservative is really interesting and I think that my viewers might like to hear it. Do you want to come on to my show? And I said, sure, yeah, we can schedule it for next week. You know, I'm around. And he looked, I'll never forget he looked down at his watch and he goes, no, we're actually back from commercial in two minutes. Can you come on now? Yeah. Dennis hadn't prepped for that day. I know my sources told me he hadn't done any prep. He didn't know what to talk about and he said, that's a smart lady. She can do the talking. So how did it go? It went well. It was relatively benign sab I just talked about how much I hated cancel culture, but the real part of the story is that the dentist prager show posted that clip on YouTube. And the next day it circulated around many of my peers at Harvard. And the reaction was mixed. I did have a lot of my friends stand by me, but I don't hang on. What is the timing for this? So is this after you graduated or when does this? This was the summer between my sophomore and my junior year. So I was writing. So you hadn't given the speech yet. No, I gave that speech as a senior. So this whole transformation happened. I was a sophomore.
"a. studio" Discussed on The Slowdown
"Hayes slow down listeners, it's Ada. And producer Micah, Ada, we're so excited to see what you do as poet laureate, and I promise we will carry the torch. While the show is hard at work putting together season four, we hope you enjoy these episodes from the archives. This week's episodes are all about art of many forms. I'm Ada limon, and this is the slowdown. My mother is a painter. She's graciously created the paintings for the covers of all 6 of my poetry books. When I grew up, her studio was on the first floor of our apartment building in Sonoma, California. I loved spending time in her studio. For 40 years now, she has been a part of the la hay arts center, which is a collective of studios and a walk in gallery off the Plaza. Anyone can wander into the gallery and studios whenever they like. Walking into someone's working art studio is like walking into someone's mind. In one corner, she's working on sketches, or some felt animals that have grown into a handsome and delicate collection of dogs. In another corner, canvases are being readied for a new painting. The walls are full of paintings and various states of half finished and finished. Some that are just figuring out what they are, and others that feel done. At least to the casual viewer. What always intrigues me the most are the little snippets of inspiration, pinned to the wall. A painting of a blue donkey. A dream scrawled in her large looping handwriting about riding a horse as fast as she could. A hawk wing. A picture my older brother took, of an old barn. All of these small, visual accumulations that seemed to expand as you get closer and closer to them. Even the materials themselves. The paint brushes, the sink, splattered and stained with paint. The little space heater that keeps her warm. I love all of it. As writers, our offices can't compete. Even if we try. Our material for the most part exists in our minds. In our hearts and in our piles of books and overflowing shelves, I have stacks of paper which aren't nearly as colorful and inviting as the palette box and my mother's studio, with its swirls of colorful oil paints. Try as we might, we writers, only have words. And breath. In today's poem we see the idea of the artist studio and how each item each visual clue leads us to a deeper understanding of how art is made. The studio, by Cedar, sigo. Coyotes, on a torn paper hilltop, howling at the sun. A blaring red stamp. A circular pond with animals feeding in droves around it. Brown, pink, yellow, cheetah, bare trees, full of long, colored birds. A wooden ladder that swings down off its hinge. A huge room without bolts or nails, full of ghosts of Friends, makers of poems. Turquoise and black at battle in square shapes and ends of blades interlocked offscreen. Reams of paper in boxes, perfect, blank. Next to ladders, leading out the roof. Rodin's.

"a. studio" Discussed on Mac Power Users
"All right, since we're talking about studios, I think we should probably start with the computers. All right, how many Apple silicon Macs are on your desk right now? The beautiful 16 inch MacBook Pro. The computer is amazing. I mean, this is I think a running thing, just like we're used to talk about bad keyboards every week. Now we talk about Apple silicon being awesome every week. It's just such an amazing computer. And I'm very happy with it. And so my rig is a loaded 16 inch MacBook Pro connected to a pro display XDR. And I feel like I have to explain myself whenever that pro display comes up because I'm actually embarrassed that I own it. When I was Apple silicone first came out, I talked about it on the show and listener very kind listener who has a video studio wanted Intel Macs for something I guess software they were using or whatever they needed Intel. And I think I talked about in one of the more power users episodes about maybe selling it. And he offered to trade me a pro display XDR or that he wasn't using for my iMac pro, which was a pretty good spec iMac pro. The only thing is he said that I had to give him a $1000 to pay for the bleeping stand and that wasn't the words he used. But anyway, so I ended up giving him an iMac pro and I paid him a $1000 and I got this crazy monitor, which I do not have no justification for owning. I do video, but I don't do the kind of video where you need an HDR screen. But it is gorgeous in this big and it's 6 K and I got accustomed to it very quickly. So I have this big screen and I have a laptop attached to it using the laptop and clamshell mode has been zero problem for me. This laptop is a monster computer for what I do. Way more powerful than I need. And I am living my best life right now in terms of my Mac and my base station. Going from a an iMac to the setup you have now, I mean, I've learned this when we get to my desk. I've learned some hard lessons about, man, the all in one lifestyle is really nice and neat, but I guess are you finding with things like thunderbolt that it's pretty simple to have this desktop as a laptop lifestyle? Oh, I'm doing it under ideal circumstances. I mean, in addition to being a gorgeous screen, the XDR is a three port hub. So I've got things hanging out the back of it that I can plug in. And I don't know, I find that just very little trouble to switch this between clamshell mode and portable mode. And I move it probably once every couple days I unplug it. So it's not every day, but it's pretty often. And the reason for that is because the how my studios in the center of the house, if I want to record screencasts, for instance, and the kids are home, you know, making cookies. I'm not going to tell them that they can't make any noise while I'm so I'll just take all this unplug the laptop and bring it upstairs to one of their rooms has a nice desk in it and I have it's like a studio B for me. I've got a boom arm and a mic up there and so I can plug in very quickly and just start working in that room because by definition if they're downstairs, their room is available. So I've got like a second place I can go to, but having all the main assets on one computer that moves, it's just kind of like an ideal situation for what I need. And I just, I can't say enough good words about this computer. It just works. You plug it in, it works. You run the ejection script. I have a little Apple script that ejects the external drives and plug it ticket upstairs. There's never a problem when I come back down. I plug it back in. I don't have to sit on the old Mac. So you start to crack the lid to get it. The clamshell mode started like cracking it open. And then you close the lid quickly and then it you don't do any of that stuff now. You just plug it in. And I've got it set up now. We talked about this on a recent feedback. So I've got it set up, so I can do it with one audio cable and one thunderbolt cable. And I'm good. And I just started plug in two cables and I'm working in my keyboard and mouse and everything is down there. And all of that stuff just works with it. And I am, I am more happy with my Apple hardware now than I think I've been since the old days when I was first getting max that were the original beige boxes that made my gave me so much joy. Yeah. No, that's awesome. I think a lot of people are finding that the laptop desktop lifestyle is easier than ever. And they've always been those sort of rough edges. And I'm glad Apple paid attention to that. And it makes me really think about, man, I bet a bunch of people were at Apple or annoyed that clamshell mode was kind of janky in the past, right? So this smooth out those edges. And I think that's I think that's super cool. I mean, the bigger problem is and you know, this monitor did not cause me a $1000. If I look at what I could have got for selling that iMac pro, I paid a lot for this monitor. Yeah. And I would have much preferred to pay one or $2000 for an apple monitor that is like an IMAX green. That doesn't, I mean, that would have much preferred to pay less, even if it had been a little smaller and certainly not as fancy. And then you also look at the fact that my MacBook Pro probably has a better screen on it now than this very expensive monitor. I just think it's the only question of time before Apple resolves this. I feel like they're going to come in with more of a consumer grade monitor and probably they're going to replace the XDR with something similar to the panel and these laptops. But. All that being said, I'm just super happy with it. I don't see myself. I mean, we've got a lot of fun to talk about in the next year on the show and then the big imacs come out and the Mac pros, but I honestly, you know, and I'm saying this and I know people are rolling their eyes, but I feel like I'm pretty good. You know, I'm not sure I just don't see myself getting tempted to spend great big piles of money to switch anything out. I think this is going to be my rig for a while. Yeah. Yeah, I mean, I'm still on my 2019 Mac pro, it was a huge investment for me. I did. Thankfully, have a little bit of a discount applied to it, which is nice, but still by far the most expensive computer I've ever owned. I drive it with a pro display XDR that I added about a year later and then didn't tell anybody for a while I bought it. And then I think someone spotted it in the corner of a picture. I'm like, hey, that's not the LG. And then I had to fess up to it. But I have been so happy with this computer. You know, we were there at the announcement the last in person WBC and it blew me away when they announced it and then we got to go see it and that was incredible. And having one here, I mean, I've run it now for almost exactly two years because it came out on December of 19. I think mine showed up in late January, so I've decided two years..

"Panels right there on that main wall and then right there in the center is my main camera. This is my my black magic pocket. Cinema six k. Camera now this thing is for a lot of the stuff that i do. It is absolute overkill but that cameras. Dadgum magical. I love it since k. Resolution hardly use six resolution but is beautiful and it works really well with they. Hdmi connection deploy grad into my computer. Yeah that's probably the best value camera you can get out there all right so now back to the rest of the studio again. That's that light. The main key light with the big brown thirty six inch parabolic soft box. I love this thing because it just looks so good. And as i said before has this grid on it to help cut down on the extra spill and like my other lights is on the stand. Okay because the c. stands. They just flat out work in just so easy to work with. And then there's another cease next to my tripod at my camera that c. span is was holding my overhead camera. My overhead camera is right here. And this is the cannon in fifty no not kennedy fifty. This is similar to the cannon in fifty. This is the in two hundred. Get those mixed up from time to time when you look at them. They look fairly similar. But this is the two hundred that can Showed off a c- a couple of years ago. The big premise on it is because it has cling hdmi out so you can livestream with fairly easily and not have to worry about all the displays and things like that on the screen but it's a pretty awesome device right so that's the cameras and now let's take a look at the desk. My desk is a mess and this okay. I'm happy with it. I have just a regular cyber power. Pc keyboard there's a couple of lindsay's right over here. Because why. I don't know i don't even know. Why does liz on my district now. But they're they're my coffee mode. Because i always liked to have some coffee at point in the day then i had these little great cards here. Use these great cards to help me out with white ballots prior to shooting. So when i sit down in my chair to face that camera over there now always hold this this little card up to make sure i get my white ballot set for mr victor in post just makes things a lot easier on me. Oh i use your own mister victim. Because you know he's trying to make me look and sound good for his photography. Okay so now. I'm at the desk. These monitors that one screen is a thirty two inch display. I think it's thirty two inches. I can't remember this. Screen is a twenty seven inch to. Hd's so it's like a. I think his twenty five sixty fourteen forty p. That's what it is. Probably a little large probably could make that one just down to maybe a twenty two inch and be okay. But i like it. It is what it is. But i definitely like having large monitors. I work in a lot of windows. I don't work in a lot of tabs. But i worked in a lot of windows and i think that having that extra real estate just more beneficial for me and my workflow okay so onto a little more here. We have the atm me. This is a ten many pro. Actually in this thing is quite nice. It does a great job of allowing me to do video switching. Sorry for the screen flicker here but allows you to do camera switching with my video camera so you see a little red light there. That's telling me that camera one is active. The green light is for camera. To and if i want to switch i just hit this little button and it cuts to camera too. It's pretty cool and it's quick and easy to use next on the desk. We have this little microphone interface. Night tweet we use the ohio. Pr forty microphones. You know that is our standard there. Here's here's the how pure forty these things sound so dadgum. Good a lot of people like to talk about this shore. Sm seven b. Which is another great mike. This one i here sounds gist is good in my opinion and or the at least for my voice. It sounds really good. And that's what matters the. Yeah this is the how. Pr forty and that's connected to my computer through this mike interface. Now this is called the mix pre the knicks pre three mark to actually. This is my sound of isis. And this thing is amazing. It allows you to connect any type of x alarm. Microphone to your computer. But what's key about it is. It has thirty two bit float so you get a lot of dynamic range when recording your audio so if you're clipping your audio a lot of times this thing will allow you to recover that audio and get out of that clipping sound. And it's still sound pretty good or if you're too soft it allows you to pull it up in that capture a whole lot of the noise when you pull it up. Super expensive is about seven hundred bucks for these things but man as a these are the to the pros us. They are really really really nice plugs. Nba usb uspa or usb. See i think mine is going to be at the moment. Excellent input really helps get the job done from an audio recording standpoint. All right one more thing. In addition to that on my desk is this thing called a cough. Drop mr burke at the studio hooked me up with this year. Because i really really really get tired of hitting mute inside of zoom or skype or anything like that. I was hoping for some type of hardware standpoint. That would really help me out. So if i have to cough or just need to mute myself for a second just hold that button down and it cuts off the mike. It's so easy and so convenient. And when i'm done just like oh we have these at the studio built into the main set desks so we sit down and doing this weekend. Tanker this week in google. Or what have you. And if you're on the panel you need to coffee you have a cough button right. There next season is not a big bulky like this but it's built into the this so i want something like that hear and mr berg are awesome student engineer..

Because i feel like i am making this work for other native audiences that are kind of spread out because we can send video digitally so easily we can show it. I just think it's important that this community of artists who i'm working with you know we really have a lot of power to kind of support ourselves in many ways that i just keep thinking about. Maybe even the way that i went to grad school that was significant for me. I mean it's a huge deal. But that kind of i don't know just ability to to operate as if there are no boundaries. I like what's happening. San instagram where artists can be you know self actualize and put themselves out there without you know always waiting for the gallery to come and save them and make something out of them and i i loved that energy and i love to see these artists taking things into their own hands right using media to share their work. You're asking me. Do i feel more pressure now at this stage of my career. And it's one of the things what you were just saying. I feel like it's it's my job to keep my practice going.

Because like i said before we open in We cannot like like frozen little with the whole covid situation and we were trying to figure out or services and everything for the community In a big way Acoustic isn't necessarily like our focus. Also because if you wanna learn acoustic you can learn that at at high school in the things that you can learn is production electronic music on an. Yeah you'd like you can explore experiment with electronic music. I mean it's it's just unheard of around here then who your producer then right. Is that what. I heard her Yes jam producer. So you're producing. How do you so somebody come up tune says you know what. Teach me how to produce. What does that entail like. What are you. Show them how to break shit down like say. If it's a hip hop goes to produce a hip hop song like how do you break down or how do you. How do you help. Somebody set them up on that path. I do. i ask people a few questions. I give the avenue experience with music. And if they do were what have they done. And if they're use fell studio or ten or anything like that. So i go from there and depending on what the answer i. I tried to explain like just the very basics. What are the basics coming through to lake say producing the joint well with producing a song. At least what i'm doing is you need a da. W which is a program that has a different sounds like drumbeats a baseline Bass percussion all those things. You could use to make beats what i have seen. That works very well as having the actual machines like the an analog machines you or any kind of like controller so where people can actually see the buttons and everything like that. I think it's very easy for to grasp it when it's tactical you know when you could touch it and you could see what's going on. Okay so i have this. Have this one controller.

Some thor the dark world Jennings broken archive would ask. Why anthony russo joe. Russo aaron taylor johnson and of course the infamous joss sweden specialty this week. Yeah well you know sean. Risk liano director of photography and additional crew was jim velasco working person show business post production coordinator and technical operations. Oh right that is a mouthful of people and this was a muscle show to be honest. Oh man there's so much There's so much in this But so i if what is your favorite well here. I'll go first. My four things. I found the most fascinating was that they painted vision. Blue so the black and white sequences and that they often used ad in old sitcoms for lipstick and other things where the shade needed to relate to the audience as red as fascinating. Sweet things about this is that they really and again just to show the love and the care that they put into these things how they get the field. I was gonna. We actually did not get we know they did. Bring dick van dyke on to consult on this. I was very disappointed. I was really hoping for that. But i guess they didn't want to take away it but Coming he would make a great monaco. Prince match would be so perfect for that role A look at monaco prince of magic. Say oh actually even know it was him. Oh but i want say like. That is what's really fascinating. Just the fact that you know when you're shooting in black and whites it's not just a color swap that you can shoot black and white but you have to shoot in a way. That's going to read the colors to the black and white interpretation which is really a constantly. Think about it and stuff you never think about. Let's talk when they point out that. Yeah the adamson living-rooms thank you know because it would have looked weird. It was like all black and gray would have had the vibrancy of a well lit sitcom blocking grace. So it's it's really fascinating the choices they made for that. And then when we get you you know They're talking about the special effects that or really practical effects for those fifties and sixties things because of course and as luck would have it. The guy who was doing special effects actually. I studied under the people. That did bewitch. So yeah. I know all about abdul hadi wire wire magic In the sitcom you know how to hide the wire how to make it through the air so that looks like it's floating on a wire you now. I mean just that kind of stuff that they knew what they wanted and then they found the people that could do it. They found the best. This is one of the things and this is where this was seven baggies baby. This is what. I what. I say about a producer and this is why producers are way more important than people think because we will just think. Oh do they put up the money. They put their name on it. No and if that's letten maybe some people have producers like that. But i don't really good show what you find is that producer is. The person who who's art swarm is the manipulation of other artists. So i wouldn't call it manipulation. I would call the plying. We'll yeah well. That's what i mean. So essentially and this goes to Much like a director directs the cast in how to bring to fruition his vision. The same thing is done by the producer on a broader level on the people that are involved in the mechanization of the process. So why use manipulation. Is this idea that you know a musician. Manipulate sound a writer manipulates words. That work is fraught with connotation that award is line could do it up carrying that sort of you know into i sort of take that somewhat from a alfred hitchcock who very famously said actors are the paint upon which i paint that use canvas which was also kinda seemed to be kind of diminutive of after sets. You know to its. You ain't no. But i mean when i was in acting school in. I was working with the director that i trusted that i admired. I would say to him. Look i m your utensil. You know use me to get your vision. I understood that as an actor that that was my responsibility Play but you know that's an important thing to have but the director gets out of the people working there is saying yeah where all commonly aligned on this vision and i will bring all of myself to bear to make that happen. How do you get people motivated to do their best aimed in that direction. And that's what they're good producer does exactly. It's it's an. It is finding the personalities that are going to match funding people that are going to work well together finding people that are going to build out this universe. Well you know. I mean what is it is kind of surprising in its own way that for as much derogatory stuff as jocelyn gets for.
