"Mom and and as always. I'm joined by my good pal. Jacob redman jacob. How're you doing on this fine morning.

I probably shouldn't give these people too much credit. Fire lord's own right. You know i'm doing well. We came off last week and a fantastic podcast with josh and kevin. It was so much fun. It was amazed even in the moment while we were recording. We have our streaming are now looking. I was like wow. Where's it to our mark bulich. We've been talking about thirty minutes so much. Fun of it was interesting dynamic. because even though we're the host of this show it's like they're kind of our podcasting seniors and like especially kevin came in pretty hard really was like i've always needs a news. Good news a great show. I thought has a ray happy with how that turn now and once again. Thanks to both josh. And kevin or coming on our little show. And i mean i felt bad because the movie was so awful at a certain point back. I just saw like to press microbe. Sei we watch our boy almanzan young muhtar like. Oh what a horrible. I wish men in black memory stick to wipe out the young my brain honestly that might be the best for both of us for that and if we could just wipe that from our memory i had gone back before podcasting thing in the movie so it showed up on my net flicks like continue watching and i was like no. I will not be doing that. And you know it's actually been haunting me. This movie's been haunting me throughout this week. It's been falling following me into my real life. Okay feel free to elaborate on that quite interested so last week kevin said like the mark of bad writing is when someone says like as you know and then describe something that you know. I started working with someone at my job. Who starts like half of his sentences with as you know and then tells me something. I know and i really like. I'm having flashbacks. I'm like wait is m night shamlan writing my life story stranger than fiction except instead of amitav night shamlan. And you're just will farrell exactly. It got even worse when on thursday. We were talking about like different movies or stuff that we were watching and he was like. Oh yeah. I was just watching the last air bender and i was like what like. Why apparently like he had never seen it before. He's also an avatar fan and so he was like. Oh yeah like. I was watching it for the first time and i was like. Hey there's a podcast nice of our broadcast of course step ahead. Good potential listener. You're lucky as you know co worker. Exactly yes if you're here as you know co worker as much for joining and i'm sorry for making fun of you in the start of the show. Yeah i mean i. Hopefully he enjoys the show. I mean honestly though are our last podcast last week about. The movie was a great entry level. Podcasts for like people. Don't listen to us. Listen to i thought so if anything he does he's got absolutely right there with the movie fresh on his mind did he talk generally was he just watching it like us. Yeah he was watching it like us like it was one thing that i think. It was similar to your positions act. Where like he's heard how bad it was. He's a fan of avatar and had never done it and he was like you know what now's the time to do it so he just sat down and watched it last week yeah. If it wasn't for this. I never would have watched that piece of shit moody. Pardon my language. Tell us this episode before we absent opposites though we should tell our fans From here on out. We're gonna be dropping on wednesday mornings rather than tuesday in the new year. We are switching to wednesdays. You might have noticed that with the m night. Shyamalan movie broadcasts as well. We forgot to announce their. That's my bet in cobb podcasting on my part but we're doing now so going on wednesday morning yeah on wednesdays will wear pink and will listen to hang and added to the agenda also hump day so we can go back to those terrible geico commercials with camel walking around completely. You unlocked a hidden memory. I have forgotten among us remind. Yeah there's no. There's no survivors. So instead of survivor you got hang in there for the foreseeable on. Why oh yeah. We'll probably have to hang in there for a while before we get new reality. Tv back but you know what your wednesdays are getting pretty full. You know you have to wear pink. You have to watch the guy commercial. You have to listen to us like it's a lot. Was there anything else we we need to get into before a man. It's crazy we're on season two already almost like just when she came on my screen and we'll talk more about almost. I go goosebumps along like wow. We're really season to keep saying it. Just feels like we start our podcast like a week ago and now we're already starting season two like it's still surreal to me even now. Yeah i agree get seems like a you know just a few weeks ago. Where making fun of the game with no rules and talking of pilot that genuinely bills like so recently so it's kinda short and now here are starting season two and i have to say this was a great season opener really enjoyed this episode. I agree we were talk around. Appreciate both the Be side story. Were great and i think that's why season two is incredible because you're so invested in both the story like team avatar and of course the tops you're invested in the four of them as well as zoo growing ira living their lives. As refugees in the earth kingdom both those stories are so compelling and they started them here. And i'm really excited to dig into. Yeah so let's jump in just like any storied that's good We start in a dream and hearing is running around and we see. We quickly realized that anger is seeing hang in the avatar state so he i is looking at himself in the In the first hour in the sorry in the third episode where we see him at the southern air temple he then starts to like sea monkeys skeleton and then we see him in the avatar state attack. Hang in the dream. This was like a bit of an abrupt start. Zack were you ready for this now. You mentioned it kind of. I don't think it's kind of cliche to start Episodes all greens fan that trump donkey around. This episode was incredible. But that didn't love and you're right. It wasn't a rough start because we just see and avatar state. He's having a nightmare about himself. Avatar state essentially wreaking havoc and destruction killing doing things that are not normally arabs nature. So i can see why he wakes up here with like a cold sweat and the next scene. He tells guitar that he was actually scared of himself in injury and that must be a horrible feeling to. It's one thing like me. Dream wish bone or something stupid like that was another to like. Actually see yourself in a dream and be scare of your life essentially your own reflection on. That must be terrified. Yeah and like. I don't love it. They started the episode with this. But this dream sequence is pretty good. I agree i. We see like hang in the southern air temple where he's like seeing monkey skeleton we see like qatar and sokha like hiding behind a rock is anxiety too powerful and then the blast of in the avatar state since dream state and into the next time that he's in the avatar state in the fire temple where then being ripped open a hole in the floor and then and goes to the next time on the ship in avatar state whenever he's in the Begin or he's at the end of season one. So it's a pretty cool sequence. Kaushik goes between these. I thought they did a pretty good job of like you know at least like i'm not a huge fan. They started.

Certain people hate our country entry it. Just you know it just feels good. Maybe that makes me a bad person but it does feel good. I love it and then after the press conference <hes> couple of people ask them <hes>. Hey okay. You're you're so opposed to violent rhetoric. You're so opposed to people stirring things up. What about ANTIFA are you? Are you going to denounce Antifa as well and here's one of those times when they're being asked about it. Mrs Cortez misses. You feel responsible. Wow Silence. Will you tell Americans violent anymore ANTIFA to be to be exact shouldn't stop being violent and no response whatsoever. That's kind of an easy one to seems like an an easy one. Stop being violent. Wow No comment no comment. I don't I mean that's a tough one. She was also walking down the halls of of the house. I guess I think she was in the Capitol building here and she was being asked by either either this report or somebody else the same thing. Will you condemn ANTIFA for the attack in Washington. It's easy to condemn a terrorist attack right good point. Will you be condemning ANTIFA. They firebombed un-american facility. Will you know she it. Will you be condemning a tough one.

No she's got no comment on that and you might think well the first time she's just irritated and she's in a hurry and she just doesn't WanNa be bothered the second time walking down the hallway she could stop and say yeah. I'm I'm not in favor of violence under any circumstances or whatever or yeah you know what I think thinking the case of Antifa it's perfectly natural and normal in the right thing to do to get violent. Whatever your point is? Let's hear it crazy. It's just it's amazing from from strength of Jesse's waistband at fat at least at this tweet as agonizing as it is. I think I'd rather hear the Beto Guitar rather than any of the four congresswomen are the apocalypse amitav that is saying something ooh Cooley drinker tweets what's with the ageism Keith if pat identifies twenty then by Golly.

"And prove that she's an ally to social Justice right by ensuring that a gay woman of color plays the rule. So a a black lesbian must be kept in marvel. I don't know. Why was the original was the original captain marvel black lesbian being told? No was the original captain marvel black. Yes, or no. I think they made some sort of. She made an appearance it looks like and longtime ago in one thing and then apparently slipped off into obscurity after several name changes and the character change quite a bit. But before it, you know for she had her own. Line if you will her own story, and then once that came around when they actually made her into a character. It looks like home. I gosh ally was a white woman. Oh, no. No boy. Okay. So I I'm not sure how the how that makes sense that you must I guess all characters. Now, do they all have to be gay women? Maybe that's the deal. Maybe every new movie character has to be gay transvestite transgendered person or a person of color. No more white people in movies, please. We're just done with white. We actually had one director say. He can't imagine ever giving a role casting a white, man. White doesn't even need to apply and stuff. So great. She's. We're in an upside down world as I think, you know, founding fathers are also under attack right now students at Hofstra. University are demanding that the Thomas Jefferson statue on on campus be removed. Yeah. The statue has been the center of controversy on the campus. It's been defaced with the word decolonize and black lives matter signs and stickers on it. Foof? So there's a big protest now every year, and in fact, multiple times a year about getting rid of it. They stand around the around the statue and demand that it be torn down. Go study. It is about what the statue represents a legacy of racism and bigotry on college campuses. That's what Thomas Jefferson represents you. She's the organizers of this our students from Hofstra and some staff members from Planned Parenthood of Nassau County. Oh, so, you know, their quality individuals. Look, I who am I to judge. I'm just saying these people are going to burn in the fires of hell. That's all. I mean, I, you know, judge anyone so no I'm just saying I'm just saying. I am so tired of the Thomas Jefferson hatred, the George Washington hatred, which they're also is we've got this story about a northern California Public school. They may remove a mural of George Washington from the halls of get this, George Washington heights. Yes. Because of confer concerns, it's offensive and demeaning to native Americans in African Americans. I mean open up a book. A working group determined the mural made up of several panels traumatizes students and community members. If it traumatizes these little darlings, they need to just stay home K homeschool where nothing bad can ever happen. And they can see only what's on the walls of your home. Don't let them stray outside ever for any reason. So tired of this advocates for keeping the mural say that removing it ignores the intent of the artist and represents an attempt to erase history. Yeah. Well, I mean, somebody said once those that we're going to have to make sacrifices have to change our conversation for station. We're gonna have to change our tradition history based the move into a different place. So I guess what we ask ourselves is is removing a statue of Thomas Jefferson and erasing mural of George Washington. Isn't that fulfilling everything she just said there and more it absolutely is? This is what this is about. In nineteen thirty six this artist of Victor Amitav painted, the thirteen panels that make up the life of Washington. Keep in mind again. This is George Washington high school. Detail dinner. He was a prominent Russia baron painter who created the murals as part of a works project administration project undertaken by the new deal. Wait a minute. Something good came about to say, I was on the side of leaving the mural found out. It was a make work project as amazing. She's the group has four public meetings.
Emma Thompson drops out of Skydance film after John Lasseter hire
"When David Ellison hired Pixar co founder, John Lasseter in January two head Ellison's new sky dance innovation studio. The response was swift organizations such as time's up and women in innovation. Condemned the decision and many sky, dance employees were furious. Pixar and Disney forced Lassiter out of his job as its chief creative officer last June, and that was after female employees alleged Lassiter had groped them and created a frat house like work environment where women were excluded. When Lassiter came to sky dance. The studio was in production on a movie called luck. And among its actors was Emma Thompson, but Thompson left the project soon after Lassiter's hiring, and she detailed her reasons in a letter to sky dance that was published today in the LA times, Mary McNamara's culture columnist and critic at the paper she wrote the story about Thompson's letter and she explained. How the head of sky dance address concerns about Lassiter's hiring back in January David Ellison Sunday, a really long, and it was a little like defiant, Email, basically saying we've talked to John and he understands that some things some things that he has done in the past were not appropriate. He has, you know, been addressing those issues, and it is in his contract that he must behave professionally so nobody should be worried. I mean, the the absurdity of like someone being hired at this level of, you know, oversight overseeing this huge staff, or, you know, I'm sure a lot of money and having his boss having to point out that he is contractually obligated to behave professionally is just I mean, my hair just liked went on fire. It's like they don't understand. This isn't just about the specific instances that women. Have detailed which are bad enough. I'm not saying in any way, but it's about creating an atmosphere in which women were shut out. And just the fact that he would get a job again. So quickly basically sends a message to everyone in Hollywood. Which is like this is not a big deal. You know, it's a blip in the road. So when he comes to sky dance emission the studio is already in development or production on a movie called luck. And one of the voice actors in this film as an actress by the name of Amitav, sin and Thomson recently decides that she wants no part in this movie. So what does Emma Thompson decide that she's going to do and how she's going to make her decision? Well, my understanding is that as soon as Lassiter was hired Emma Thompson contacted her representatives and started talking about I gotta get out of this film. And that she did indeed leave on January twentieth. She withdrew from the film, and then she sent a letter to sky dance explaining why she had withdrawn from the film and asking all the questions that people have been. Asking which is like how you know. Why was the staff I mean, one of the things after Lassiter's hiring? And I don't know if you heard from people at guidance, but I did off the record people were very upset women and men were upset they didn't want to have to deal with this. They didn't know what it said about their company. And so that was one of the questions she raised. It's like, well, why is John Lasseter getting a second chance when no one who's going to be working for him was asked if they wanted to give him a chance, and she and she just lists a long number of questions that his hiring had raised. And finally said she wanted to make this movie she wanted to work with the director. But she just couldn't in good conscience lend her name to it. So she writes a letter that she shares with the LA times, and you publish, and I think this letter will go on to be the Magna Carta or the declaration of independence of the metoo movement. And here's what she writes in one passage. I'm going to quote, sky, dance employees who don't wanna give him John Lasseter. A second chance have to stay and be on. Uncomfortable or lose their jobs. Shouldn't it be John Lasseter who has to lose his job? If the employee's don't wanna give him a second chance there's lots to single out on this. I think that's remarkable. What did you also notice about what Emma Thompson had to say? Well, I just thought the fact that she said that people like me have to take the stand. And if we don't nothing is going to change we can talk about it. We can have tasks force. We can have PSA's, and we should do all that. But Hollywood runs on money and star power. And until the stars that make the money the stars that make the projects run until they're willing to go. I'm not going to do this. You know, I will not work for this, man. Because I believe that this was not a good higher. I believe that this makes too many people uncomfortable that it's too dangerous for too many people. You know, David Ellison isn't taking a chance John Lasseter is not going to sexually. Him. But who knows and who's going to be the first person like, you know, everybody's on eggshells. Anyway, like who's going to be the person that if something happens it's guidance who's going to speak up because it's the women who are targeted. They're not equal to the power of the man. That's the whole point there. There are people who don't feel like they have the kind of voice now, I think that that has changed a little bit. I hope it's changed a lot. And I think that seeing someone like Emma Thomson take this kind of stand and walk away from a project that she was excited about doing sends a really great message to everyone, including her peers, this is another tool in terms of fixing Hollywood is that the people who are in these positions. These A-List people you need to do more than make statements. They need to make statements with their feet. So what happens to a project like luck? We'll somebody else come in and take it over or will the movie fall apart and a lot of people who were going to work lose their jobs. I mean, there's no real easy ending to the store. Is there? No. And that's something that she also addresses in the letter is stars do have that kind of responsibility for a project that they're you know, they are one person. But there is cast and crew and people who may be this is their first big job, and nobody wants to take that away from people. And so I'm sure it was a difficult decision. Because I don't know they haven't announced a replacement. I don't know what female actor would step in to do that. I don't know what their choices are going to be. I don't know what how the director. They've been very quiet. Nobody has been commenting. I, you know, I don't know how the director feels about it. But this was a very big deal for them. This was one of two big animation films that we're going to sort of put scions animation on the map. And this is not a good way to start.

She is who has lived in this country for as long as she is should know that black face, always bad know, Amitav minstrel show. She liked taught herself. And when she apologized the audience gave her a standing ovation. We're like applauding her ignorance. And like, oh, the fact that she finally learned when she was forty seven whatever she's fired. What sucks is that Meghan? Kelly is going to be fine. Megan Kelly is going to get a book deal Meghan Kelly has to get paid out on the remains of a million dollars. She's a seventy millionaire they have to pay. According to the reports the early reports that we've seen making Kelly still has to be compensated for everything they haven't paid her yet. And I saw this Daily Mail got the pettiest angriest NBC executive to talk to them anonymously an NBC executive knowledge of the situation tells Daily Mail, quote, Meghan Kelly is done. She is not ever coming back. We are just working out timing of the announcement. But Mark my words she is gone, and we'll never be seen on NBC live. Again, the source. Then added quote, here's the worst part. Her deal is a non break deal. So she walks away with all that money gusting. I mean, it's disgusting and heads should roll. Here because of it but heads won't roll. No part of me may well heart of me is like it's. Part of me is like it's really funny that she doesn't have to do our job and get seventy million dollars. But also part of me is like these exempts were waiting for any excuse to fire her for her own fault. Like seventy million dollars is drop in a bucket to them. They're not worried that's not their budget. You know, like they're just like how do we get? This woman off TV we don't want to make this show anymore. So it's kind of a win win. Unfortunately, she doesn't lose. I mean, she's already she's been through the wringer in terms of like she now people are like men, Kelly, racists like what's going on here. But honestly, like she gets away with with murder getting this money, and then they get to get her gone. It's kind of this weird. Like, no thing, you know. I hope she learns. I mean who even she's not getting a show again. She's not going to learn you. Don't learn she's not gonna learn. Let's let's move on. Okay. Lindsay. I'm beside myself. What happened did you know that less than two percent of pets in the United States have medical insurance? So that is a no no, you gotta have insurance for your pets. They'll bankrupt. You those I notes an unexpected Bill can cost thousands. I recently had a scare add to take one of my cats the vet. And I was like so nervous at something was going to go wrong because I didn't have insurance. And I was like oh my God. What's wrong? It turns out. He just ate a plant that he wasn't supposed to eat. Any Barth it up? Literally, a cat could do anything and just die. I'm sorry. Okay. Trigger? Okay. Don't say that likes. But yet, it's very scary. You're right. Literally, a cat could do anything and just die. It's very scary. But fortunately trupanion exists. They are medical insurance that helps protect your pet and your finances. So if you're picking sicker injured troops pay up to ninety percent of the Bill, which is huge they can even pay your bet directly..

The Justice department, and then these people that wrote this book because they start to notice that his purchases. We're getting more extravagant and he's like access to big celebrities kept growing. And so it kind of started when he bought a thirty five million dollar private jet equity and music labels. EMI masterpieces by boss Kiat Monet and Van Gogh and two hundred fifty million dollars super yacht. A penthouse in New York's Time Warner center and the Beverly Hills hotel. Vince ROY Amitav rent about the fifty million Lindahl yacht. Yeah. Yeah. About them. He basically was making these like increasingly insane purchases. And then somebody's lying Justice department. Notice that as he spent more and more that celebrities that surrounded him grew in, like stature, and so it eventually came out that it was this like elaborate scheme set up by a foreign trust. That's main goal was to buy access into Hollywood. No, it's so smart. Am I gonna they had. He's from family millions in, I'm paraphrasing. But what they do is they had move here and start all these like insane projects and like the one girl that we talked about where she's like, I'm working on this project need funding for it. And then she then she gets to the other objects and it's always this money, and then you meet the money people that Guinness gold, but like to keep the money moving, why not use a large company to fund a private persons life when it's actually quote unquote, look an experiment or business ventures. So socio also, evil was a noticed when he helped Leonardo DiCaprio fund the wolf of Wall Street through a subsidiary bed, granite pictures. Ironic with the kind of money Lois throwing around. He was well past living the lifestyle of the rich and famous and the moment everything begin to fall apart. He was in talks to do big deals, like buying a stake in Tom Ford.
