"<music> <music> from the american museum of natural history graffiti. My interview with musical parody artist weird weird al yankovic and he had a question for me about the universe. Check it out well. I'm kind of curious. I know that there's different schools of thought among after physicists and cosmologists but i'm just wondering what your opinion is on how the universe is going to end. Do you think is is going to be do you think that the expansion is going to slow down and go back to a singularity and maybe we have a big crunch start over again. Do you think there's going to be a big freeze where the absolute temperature is going to zero. Do you think you think the forces of expanding outweighed the gravitational field and everything get ripped apart on a molecular level or at top level what do you i got money on this. I wanted to thank vegas. So do you want the the answer. I the worst answer or the worst answer gosh. Let's let's go bad bad bad okay so the bad answer is all evidence says we aren't a one way expansion trip. We're expanding faster than the collective gravity. Everything in the universe can possibly slow us down to reverse so it's a one way trip and in that one way trip temperature the universe will drop to absolute zero asymptotically so not only does it become large it becomes empty because matter becomes more and more separated and becomes uh-huh cold and as i say the universal end not with a bang with a whimper not in fire but in ice yeah kind of a spoiler alert by the way the clip that there was a bad answer or worse answer the baddest answer ever vote. Was that the baddest answer all right. There's some hypotheses that the expansion of the universe will become so accelerated that the very capacity of the space time continuum to stretch will become compromised compromised and no longer will space-time stretch it will tear her and we have no idea what would happened after that a tear in the fabric of space wrinkle. We're because the wrinkled you iron them out if they tear. It's a wardrobe malfunction so are star trek fans every show we solicit questions that they might have about about a topic that we discussed and they've got questions about the end of the universe themselves so that means it's time for cosmic queries so who can read questions from the internet we haven't seen them. I got my man charles here to answer every question because he's geeky nerdier than i am but i might be able to add caller commentary to it so i'm going to be the voice of your voiceless fans that sammy forever on twitter asks how'd how'd you planets and and if the plant's our solar system ended in some way how would it affect us because it's about us on earth. Oh okay charles. Let me get this. Okay okay in five billion years. The sun will expand stupendous -ly so large that it will engulf the orbits orbits of mercury and venus and its surface will become so near to earth that earth's oceans will come to a rolling boil and evaporate into the atmosphere and the atmosphere will evaporate into space and the ember that was once a haven for life descends into the crucible that is the center of the sun as we favor is kevin nice day so that's what would happen to us. Okay thank. He doesn't really matter because we're gonna evaporate. Every vicki richards from facebook asks do black holes and or are they in eternally crushing matter and light with their gravity. Does the ever stop trump. Yes it ends black holes evaporate through quantum mechanical process named after stephen hawking. It's called hawking radiation.

You don't just have to know the original song. You have to add something to wit and so there's like it. It's almost like sarcasm. The way that sarcasm like when it's like funny sarcasm and not necessarily mean sarcasm is like a way to communicate to who different things at once you can communicate kind of the the the actual thing that you're saying but then there's the underlying thing that you need it like the implied thing that you need to know know the references that you need to get in white and nerdy in order to to know i.

They only hand out a few awards during during the Grammy's mostly it's about. It's about the performances and there were there was a ton of performances on the on the show. Some were good some weren't. Like, I said for me the best performance of the night. With brandy Carlisle. Who I really like a lot. And I thought her I thought she gave the best performance. And and of course, you had you had your tributes there. Diana Ross turned seventy five and she did she did your basic Diana Ross over the top performance. And. Herger grants her grandson introduced her and he's nine and he's got like an incredible head of hair. He was he was real. He was really he was really very very funny this kid, and then there was a tribute to Dolly Parton, which was great because Dolly Parton. That's that's the one that. I I really wanna go back and watch. Yeah. It's it's you definitely should because. Between her and Cyrus working together. And then. Her singing the song called red shoes? I just you know, I mean, I love I love Dolly Parton. She's she's phenomenal. So but overall, I I mean, I did think it was way too long. And you know, they were cutting their speeches. Who people would get up there? And when they're when they're award, and then they were just like really blasting the music and cutting the speeches. Which at that point. It's like at this point man, the show is like four and a half hours long. But are we? What are you? What are you worried about the speeches for so? But yeah, I mean here are some of the winters are, you know, some of these winners are were surprising. I think. So like, for instance, record of the year went to this is America by childish Gambino, which I'm thrilled about because I love childish Gambino. But Donald Glover wasn't there. That was the that was the disappointing thing. It was like, you know, they want some major awards. One record of the year and run one song of the year. So those are two major major awards Donald Glover wasn't there. So this is America one song of the year at one record of the year album of the year went to golden hour by Casey muss graves. Who I was not very familiar with. But she's good. Best new artist went to do a leaper best solo pop solo performance went to JoAnne. Where do you think you're going by lady Gaga? Best pop duo or group performance went to shallow by lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, by the way, lady Gaga's performance was weird. I mean, she's she is a bit of a weird. Performer in general. But. It was very intense and crazy. She was wearing a weird civil know like a glittery jumpsuit and making all kinds of weird faces and stuff, and I just was I was the little I was a little confounded by her by your performance. And I really liked the song. I mean, obviously shallows a terrific song. And it's probably going to win an Oscar and a couple of weeks for her. But yeah, she and Bradley Cooper got the got the award for best pop duo or group performance. Best pop album went to sweetener by our 'Grande, Ariana GRANDE day, best rock performance with when bad. Does goodbye. Chris cornell. Chris cornell. How did he have a backlog of of new material is that what the deal is? That's that's got to be. Yeah. What happened there? Yeah. Well deserved. Well. Yeah. Mean he was the best deserved. Best rock song went to miss education. By Saint Vincent. Best rock album from the fires by Greta van fleet. Best alternative music album was colors by Beck. Best R&_B performance best part by her. Best urban contemporary album. Everything is loved by the Carter's best Rb album her by her. Best rap performance. Kings, dead Kendrick Lamar. And bubbling, by Anderson pock, or pack Anderson pack. Best rap song to God's plan by Drake. Best rap album went to invasion of privacy by Cardi B. So I have a question for you. Would you truly consider Drake a rapper? Yeah. I just feel like he just talks over. Yeah. No. He's a rapper. He's a rapper has never. I just never hear wrapping when I compared to like, I get he's different in an hands down mad respect to him for being different standing out everything. I just compared to everything else that's out there. I just never think. It's. And he's Canadian. Oh, wow. So best music video went to this is America, childish Gambino, man. Donald Glover, man. Yeah. When in some serious stuff that video rules. It was awesome. Yeah. Or the song is amazing to chose Gambino. Hey, you know, weird Al yankovic wanna wanna Grammy? That's that's too now for squeeze box the complete works of weird Al yankovic, which is best boxed or special limited edition package. So at one for the packaging. Yeah. I like that. Yankovic? What was it was it last year was the first time you want one? Two years who years ago, but it, but it took that long. Yeah. How did how did weird Al not? How did he not have a granny? I have no idea. How does he have a room full of Grammy's? So I don't know. You know, you know, they get so many weird categories. This is the thing about the Grammys is that there's like seven thousand awards they only hand out about six of them on the show, but there's like a million awards here. Best compilation soundtrack for visual media. What that went to the greatest showman. Best soundtrack for visual media, Black Panther. That one has my vote, but I'm a marvel fan. Yeah. You know, the music the music for Black Panthers. Great. I think you know, what for all those marvel movies? The scores have been awesome. Yeah. Just really outstanding. Let's see best country song went to space cowboy Casey muss graves. I'm assuming that's not the. It's not the Steve Miller song. I would I would imagine. Best traditional pop vocal album. My way by Willie Nelson. Best country duo group performance. Dan shea with tequila. So the the those guys performed those guys performed last night. Did they? Yeah. And I don't even know. I like, here's here's another thing. Whenever I watched the Grammys or or like music awards and stuff, especially the MTV, which I don't even try to watch anymore. The MTV video music awards because I feel like I'm one hundred and six years old. I have no idea who anybody is. Like when I was watching. I was watching the Grammy's last night. I'm like, I have no idea that is I've never heard this song before in my life. Deli part partner, Diana Ross word Sam smokey Robinson. I knew that. But yeah, you know, a lot of a lot of the stuff. That's like, you know, younger. I don't I dunno. Shawn Mendez guy. He was okay. He performed I believe he performed again. I think that was also with Miley Cyrus. Yeah. It was that was what Miley Cyrus to. She was all over the place last night. I try to be as open minded as possible. But I just do. I just like for the most part. I just kind of sit on my couch, and I don't I don't recognize anybody. I don't know who these people are so three one two nine eight one seven two hundred is the phone number if you'd like to to join us. If you watched what did you think what did you guys think of the the ceremony? What did you guys think of? Of the performances because there were a lot of performances. Let's see best is ain't got bluegrass. You've got traditional blues guy won the blues is alive. And well. Best spoken word album. Jimmy Carter Jimmy Carter got himself a Grammy. Best music film. How is that? When did that become a category? I don't know. But I like it best music film. And I don't see. Wait a minute. I feel like Bowie's Quincy. From Quincy jumps before before. I heard that. I just would have gone with bohemian rhapsody. But yeah. Say. So. Yeah. And then also last night were the Bastas. Those are the British film awards. They were handed out as well at the same time. But I ended up watching the Grammys ex. I basically forgotten that the Baptist were. We're we're being handed out. That's why Bradley Cooper wasn't at the Grammys. Someone lady Gaga got up to to accept their award for their group or
"al yankovic" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"I don't wanna think today's guests Stephen Jones, Rashad Jennings. Joe Taurean weird Al yankovic, by the way, I can't say. I can't say enough, you know. Even Jones Rashad Jennings. Joe Taurean weird Al yankovic walk into a television show. It's also on the radio and craziness ensues. I still can't get over the Joe Tory story. I mean, holy crap. He called Marianas potentially like a spare part at the top of nineteen Ninety-six when he first showed up and then he melts Donmar have a bullpen session. You think Mel comes back to Joe? Hey, joe. Yeah. Mario has got this cutter on head of his on Hannibal. Now, you know, Edgar Martinez interestingly enough in his career eleven for nineteen against Mario five seventy nine. Batting average. Best average by any player off of Rivera with at least five plate appearances. By the way, you'll say three seven against Messina and four forty four against ROY halladay who is going into the hall of fame with this guy could hit he could wear you out. That's the last guy. I wanted to see and Martinez in that nineteen ninety five game. Joe Torre referred to sing in which he first laid eyes on Mariana Rivera. He's the one who ended it. He's the one. Who ended Don Mattingly career? He's the one who hit that double in the corner. He's the one who I absolutely knew was gonna hit one off of black. Jack McDowell to bring Ken Griffey junior home from I. But the reason why maybe that he was able to hit Mariana like that. It's just like everybody is Marianas cutter made him tougher on lefties than rights because the cutter went on the hands of left handed hitter Sodom off. Okay. So right handed hitters would have a problem reaching the ball on the outer part of his own when they thought or he would sometimes spin it where it looked like it was gonna hit the right handed hitter in in the stomach and instead hit the inside part of the plate. But the lefties he was on Hannibal against lefties is a right handed power pitcher. That's part of the reason why so amazing. And so great. Do you think torii? But he's tight with bell. Check that they have some sort of banana boat like where tan. Him. It's Bella check. It's Popovich saving. They all get together, and some sort of Caribbean that outing that we're unaware of because none of them have Instagram accounts or care to actually let people know that they hang out together.
