"amy adams" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Globalist

"Andrew. You're listening to the globalist on monocle 24. Finally, it's time to get the latest theater news with Matt Wolfe, the international New York Times theater critic who I'm glad to say joins me now in the studio. Matt good to have you with us. Thank you very much. I for one am enjoying being back in the theater I saw a certain play at the ambassador theater at recently with Jonathan Bailey Taron Egerton with the name I can't say on air and the 47th at The Old Vic last week. How well is London doing in its recovery from the pandemic years? Because those theaters were full when I went. Yeah, well, there's certainly a lot around. I mean, during April, I went to 24 shows in 30 days, which I don't recommend on a monthly basis because you can burn yourself out very quickly. But the fact that there were 24 shows to see and I didn't even see everything suggests that things are really back at full tilt. And audiences are going. They are going. And we've got some big a list names currently on stage in the west then take us through what's on. Well, the newest day list name literally AA is Amy Adams, the 6 time Oscar nominee from the states who's come to the West End to make her British stage debut. And as far as I can tell, also the first time ever that she's done a play on stage. She's done musicals, but never a play. This is one of my favorite plays, Tennessee Williams is the glass menagerie written in 1944. It's a perfect miniature of a play about a sort of fuss pot of a mother who basically ruins the lives of her two children because of gentleman callers. Yes, and then there's a gentleman caller at the end who doesn't help matters much. And it's a beautiful play. It's a tricky play because like the title suggests sort of fragility. But the play itself is quite robust and you can't, you can't be too gentle to timid with it. And the problem with this production is that it seems to sort of evaporate as you're watching it, and Amy Adams just doesn't really have the muscle theatrically to hold one's attention. So the focus falls instead to the very fine actress making her professional debut playing her daughter, Lizzie anise and to a young actor who plays the gentleman caller, and they're seen in the second act really makes the evening worthwhile. But Amy Adams's performance is a bit of a damp squib. I'm afraid. Oh, I've got tickets. Maybe I should resell them. What else is on the West End? Well, big contrast between Amy Adams in this and Mark Robson Jerusalem because of course Mark rallies has been on stage for decades. And with Jerusalem at the Apollo theater, he's doing something very unusual, again, the sort of thing you see more often in musicals. He's returning to a play that he's done before, and musicals people often reprise whatever their greatest part was you'll Brenner and the king and I did it for decades. But you don't really find that in straight plays. So what Mark Wallace is doing here is picking up a play he first did in 2009, then he did it later on Broadway, won a Tony Award, and now a decade or so later he's coming back to the West End, playing this herculean part of this sort of societal outsider called Johnny Byron, who lives in a trailer at campan and Wiltshire. And it's really a sort of last hurrah for Johnny's life. With an extraordinary supporting cast headed by Mackenzie crook. And a three hour and ten minute running time that I have to say passes like absolute lightning. What's amazing about it is the comedy that brings you into the play and then the tragedy that releases you out of the play. And Riley's physicality he's now in his 60s is astonishing at the very beginning of the production he comes and he does a headstand into a trough of water. He cracks a raw egg and mixes it with some milk and drinks it. And that's just physical feats. It's the emotional commitment which is amazing. It's really a performance not to be missed. And someone else who's making their theatrical debut is Jodie coma best known from things like Killing Eve. How is she taking to the stage? Yeah, I mean, that's really interesting because unlike Rollins, she's never been on stage at all. I mean, even Amy Adams has done more theater than JD comer has. She's in a one woman show at the Harold Pinter theater called prima facie. An Australian play that was seen there in 2019, but with a different performer. And she's absolutely terrific. I mean, who knew that villanelle from TV had such sort of natural stage chops? It's not automatic as a TV or film actress. You can just walk on stage and command attention for a hundred minutes. And straight in on a one hander as well. Yeah, exactly. For one thing, she's got a very, very good voice for the theater, which not every actor does, and sometimes you don't know them until you do it. But she can feel a theatrical space very naturally. And it's very cleverly directed by Justin Martin so that even though it's one person play, Jodi comer is leaping up onto furniture looking up at the gallery as it were. And the topic, of course, is very timely, especially now with the Johnny Depp amber her trial. It's about a criminal defense attorney who is used to presiding over sexual assault cases who herself becomes the victim of sexual assault and discovers that the law isn't quite what she thought it was. And finally, crossing over the Thames to the south bank, what does the National Theater have planned for its summer season? Well, I just saw last night a very commendable show called the father and the assassin, a new player at the Indian writer and a public chandrasekhar terrific play about nutrient godse, who I confessed to not knowing much about it all, who was the assassin of Gandhi in 1948. And it's vivid theatrical and it's got a terrific leading performance from a wonderfully young agricultural sort of as the assassin very much worth seeing. And what else do they have? They've got Nikola walker also from television, but of course training the theater in an Emily Williams play called the cornice green. She plays a spinster English schoolmistress in a Welsh mining village at the turn of the previous century. Very, very affecting. And then they've got a rather sweet hundred minute two hander called middle by a writer called David Eldridge, and it's about a couple whose marriage is on the verge of collapse. And it's the middle of a trio of plays, the first one of which was called beginning, and I imagine this is a third one in the works to be called ending. Oh, well, you've guessed it that. Matt wolf, thank you very much for joining us. Well, that's all for today's program. Thanks to our producers Rhys James and Marcus hippie, our researchers lilian fawcett and Isabel rossen and our studio manager was Nora hoel. With editing assistance by Adam heaton. After the headlines, there's more music on the way. The briefing is live at midday in London, the globalist returns at the same time on Monday. I'm Vincent macca Vinny. Thank you for tuning in..

"And it moves and it has, it hits all the beats that I want from a caper movie, you know, with just great skill. The production and the 50s, 60s vibe, really anticipates a lot of what we all geeked out over geeked out on mad men. I'm losing my prepositions, but what made us all really be psyched about mad men. And just like peppered with great performances, Amy Adams shows up for like 20 minutes and braces along with Martin Sheen and a great Christopher Walken performance as the dad who can't quite deliver what he's supposed to, one of the great Spielberg not great dads. The universal dad. The universal dad, yeah, but just like a really well sharply done enjoyable movie. And this is post, should I talk about yesterday? Yeah, please. This is post Spielberg's reconciliation with his father, which he had, I think, of the late 90s, so honest trajectory of father son relationship through my art. This is a really interesting one. It's really interesting to think about I mean, I think this is, I think this is maybe Leonardo DiCaprio's best performance he gets to play all the notes that available to him. Got news for you. You've just set me up perfectly here. Next week we're doing Leo Hall of Fame. So we'll be deciding where this sits in the where this comparison don't look up. All right. And then I actually think it's one of the greatest walk in performances to walk and gets to be really funny and then really vulnerable. Emotionally, an incredible Hank's performance. This is my third most rewatched Spielberg, which is why it's number three on my list. I rewatch it all the time. I love this movie. It's like a Christmas movie for me. I think it's a really, really incredible. And I think to speak to like Spielberg putting his whole self into something, there is a bit of the con artist about Spielberg, and I don't mean that negatively..

"Barris. Gay celebs. I've ever had a photo taken with that have been scrubbed for the internet. You and your team got on that. Yes her people judge. We don't talk about the era of my life so moving. God might keep this. Week is to dear evan hansen. But i'm only bringing it up because it feels like nobody is talking about the actual things that are wrong with this movie. And they've invented this whole other set of curriculum that it failed that which is not really true. For instance everybody is now obsessed with and i think i even said this at one point i keep it. Oh well he's a big psycho like he's somebody who's trying to gain cloud through this fellow students death whatever whatever the movie is ultimately about that. I mean maybe you you you might say it doesn't fully state. How insane what he's doing is but it really is ultimately about how what he's doing his monstrous. I mean like. I think it gets to that. What is so weird to me about this musical. This particular adaptation is it goes for realism in every single way. Like there's never a moment of this movie you're taken away by the musical grandeur and in fact the movies the musical signature song waving through a window is treated as this throwaway right at the beginning of the show you forget that it even happened and the way they film it is. He's just just walking through a hallway. It's the most baffling choice. Because i think ultimately what's wrong with this adaptation is the direction it needed. Something of the unreal. It needed something that didn't it felt so often like just a gray living room drama. Like you know how the movie august osage county felt like had momentum. It was missing the thing of the play. That's what this felt like. I was just static in a room for getting. This was ever a dynamic experience. And i think that's the directors fault mainly and also. It's the director fault for not revealing in ben plants performance. Early in the movie where he is twitching. I'm not kidding. The fucking joker. There's just there's no way. He wanted that on camera looking like that. The opening of this should have been like the opening of get over it with ben foster walking with the box after he's doubt and vitamin c singer and love will bring us together like i was so shocked at the opening with waving through. We're like no one was dancing behind him. I was like musical right. it's like his head. yeah it was. It was so strange by. We'll say the supporting performances in this movie. Some of them are awesome. I thought julianne doing a song often hated from that. Musical was excellent. That's so big so small yes. She slowed down the song a little bit and the movie was already running overtime at that moment. So the odds were stacked against her. I thought that was great. Caitlyn deavere fabulous again. We loved her and book smart. Amy adams was not good. Amy adams i thought was the worst actor in the movie. I haven't seen hillbilly eligible before. But i haven't seen woman in the window yet either. Oh my god. Wow the trilogy ref amy going off. What you're saying. Though the movie. I wanted more of the fantastic. Yeah the less realism. Because for me it played everything straight and with this film really wanted to be with a melodrama yes And when people talk about how crazy he is unlike. It's what you'd get from. Like rock hudson like going after jane wyman and magnificent obsession right but if this were a brightly colored melodrama where you inside his head and really felt that he was doing all of this because he was in love with. This girl Dan would have made more sense. But it doesn't wanna pick if he's doing it for this girl if he's like mentally ill the lexa pro talk the stuff like is tr- trying to do too much and also i still don't know what it was trying to satirize elements of the film. Yeah you know where. He's like becoming famous for talk about his best friend suicide. It's like are you saying that like people who do this kind of stuff like deserve to be satirized or are you just using it as a joke now. Yeah it is confusing. Do you know who i think. Think should have directed this danny boyle somebody who really like throws in a ton of elements of kind of technological wonderment. In the movie steve.

I should made note of his name but an owner julianne moore is mom. Right right and they'll give solid performances. I mean i wouldn't expect anything less than kaelin. Devers one of these actresses who she's able to do everything you may be people sleep on her and she's been in the game when she was justified she was she was pretty young and she must have been. Yeah yeah. she's only early twenties. This makes sense. Yeah like twenty four twenty three or twenty four. Nice okay all right now. Listen you know. Everyone's dog on this movie right now. So it's really cool to hear like a pretty positive review but just go onto your final thoughts and you know it's it's one of those where yeah see something rotten tomatoes in. It's fifty percent of forty four percent. And i'm like yeah. It's not the best barometer. For what something. Good this this fall into category of you got to see it for yourself. You fall in on it. I you know. Despite everything. I thought i i really dig it it. It's a high matinee for okay. Hi matinee chephren dear. Evan hansen but please do see for yourself. Come back with your thoughts.

That's the thing. I watch you know about the negativity all right. So what is it. Wait okay again. I think i haven't seen it. So i can't say but i mean when you deal with mental illness deal of suicide in you already adapting a beloved musical or stage player with something in the theater. You're gonna have a lot of people who like are gonna mess up this so it could be that very much could be that Chat this isn't. This isn't out in theaters at the moment or will be should be out friday. Okay all right well let us know of you do see you but before we go ahead and wrap everything up. You have any last minute questions for us. Labasa manheim is this going to be merged. Come on now. Deputy don't finish the comment. Eight come on now. Jesus musicals papa. People wanted caitlyn deavere to play. She was last of us. I think she's for the part you think for. He's supposed to be like fourteen years old. Oh is she didn't like the original one. Well the in the second one. She's like eighteen. Nineteen so yeah. She's much older buckeye. I mean you. We'll see yeah When are you guys. Seeing the sopranos movie many saints of newark. We had on that. Because are you guys again. Screener is going to. We might have already Interesting okay. I'm i don't know if you've ever watched sopranos. I'm a huge. I okay watched. The sopranos was such incredibly influential show. He would not have stuff like breaking bad or man or many of the other things that spawned from those because the sopranos at really did change the face of tv and really presenting us with in this right now presenting us with the character. Especially who's the villain that the whole rooting for the villain. Yeah tony soprano before. We had walter white before we had Yup yup yup shield people. I think people for some reason forgotten about the sheet a great show but chat. I've talked about sopranos on my own channel. And i'm a huge fan. I have all the seasons on blu ray but jams james gandolfini performance as as as tony get a good picture of them. You're always looking miserable. Is absolutely incredible whereas martin said yeah. We were cheering for the villain. This this mob guy who is trying to control both of his family his real life family which is incredibly dysfunctional cheating on his wife. He has two kids or rod but also trying to maintain his criminal empire. It's a fascinating story. And we are about to see the prequel for that when he was a young man in the nineteen seventies where. We're going to finally get into. Because i'm getting the weeds here. He is very attached to his nephew. Christopher in the series played by michael imperialism and one of the reasons for that was because he was one of his closest father figures. Which i think is dad's name played by john burnsville. They bring back lot the original actors at the like the fastback stuff but that but his his his his big father figure was dickie multiple santi. Who was christopher's father. And we always heard stories about him. In the series dicky did use gingrich guy. And your file. Let me tell you about a. And i love that. But we'll go and watch the trailer and i love that show. We'll be see dickie. It's just like fucking christopher which makes sense. Because christopher an alcoholic he was a drug abuser and it seems to be the father antoni just because he was so young he had this ideal vision of what his uncle or father figure was. But let's go back to that trail around. I wanna come back and ask martin. If he's excited about this but before we do so many saints of newark which is a great fucking name for it.

"amy adams" Discussed on Late Night with Seth Meyers Podcast

"Polls including one by fox. News itself have now shown. The president biden's vaccine requirements and other cove measures are widely popular so republicans and right wing. Pundits have been forced to come up with increasingly insane arguments against him for more on this. It's time for a closer look way. You can tell that the republican party is intellectually bankrupt. Is that they spend very little time talking about policy and a lot more time talking about conspiracy theories they concocted out of nowhere so hard to keep up with the right wing rumor mill. That sometimes i'll only find out about one after it's been debunked. Yesterday was scrolling through twitter and slopes headline. That said no joe biden is not a westworld robot created by george soros to steal your hamburgers and i thought now right. I forgot to tape judge janine last night saying what you want about the democrats and there's plenty to criticize about centrists standing in the way of major legislation but at least the progressives in the party like budget committee chairman bernie sanders are trying to pass the three point five trillion dollar package that would among other things established universal pre k. program and new childcare benefit for working families extend the and the child tax credit the earned income tax credit and child independent care tax credit create the first federal paid and medical leave benefit at dental vision hearing benefits to medicare and make investments aiming to meet biden's goal of reducing economy-wide carbon emissions by fifty percent and in defense of the bill bernie is deployed some of his trademark sarcasm. No you understand that. Senator mcconnell the republican lead up and others a really shocked by bill. They cannot believe it. Imagine just imagine that the united states senate is addressing the needs of working families and was going to stand up for ordinary americans rather than just the wealthy and powerful. What is this world coming to. Don't we understand that here in the senate was supposed to take campaign. Contributions of the drug companies and the insurance companies and the fossil fuel industry and from the one percent and do their bidding is not the way it has always been done here in the us. Well senator mcconnell things are changing. I like the bernie takes on the right the same way he takes on a waiter who brings him soup but no spoon. Oh this is fantastic soup without a spoon. Maybe i'll just use my faulk famously. Designed for use with liquids. Or maybe you'll be good enough to bring me one of those wide. Mcdonald's straws so i don't get myself an aneurysm trying to get the chicken chunks up so the left is focused on trying to pass a far reaching bill that would transform childcare expand the social safety net and tackle climate change among other things. And what's the maga crowd doing. And they're offering any alternative solutions or are they asking. Eric trump about nikki massages cousins friends. Swollen balls we saw what happened to nikki manashe this week. She's facing backlash for tweeting to her. Twenty two million followers that a friend of her cousin had issues with the vaccine. And now she. They're trying to cancel her. Well that's exactly right. They'll try and cancel everybody. I mean i've lived cancelled culture. Probably better than any person in the world and if you speak out against them if you disagree with them they cancel you. They try arrest you they try in prosecute you. It's amazing kind of the unjustice. In this country in america was always this country that stood for equal weights of justice on both sides. I mean it's a national symbol of ours the scales of justice. We don't have that anymore. It reminds me of a banana republic. Maria really does first of all you do is the scales of justice are not equal weight. Some both sides the whole point. Is that the evidence on one side outweighs the evidence on the other. That's why court cases never end in ties. also who say. Nicki minaj cancelled. I mean i disagree with her on. Vaccines and i think spreading misinformation is dangerous. But she's still an amazing artist and if her next song rhymed vacs sacks and biden. Call me back. I'd be happy than anyone. It's also great when the same people who scream. Fake news treated nikki. Moniz tweet about her cousins friends balls like it's unimpeachable information. She just tweeted a room. She heard that obviously wasn't true. She's not reporting. Live outside of hospital on cnn. Data ballwatched we go. Now live to nicki manashe. Also something reminds. Eric trump of a banana republic. It's probably referring to a time. He thinks he was treated rudely at the store. Berea this whole thing reminds me of being told. I could only bring seven items into the dressing room at one time to which i said. Maybe we should have a smaller collection of chino's but that isn't even the weirdest topic of conversation. Maria bartiromo entertained on her show this weekend in the same our she also has ted cruz about a conspiracy theory that the white house has been cutting off. Joe biden's microphone which has already been debunked by fact checkers as well as reality in crews went along with it. President biden's microphone. Apparently looked like it was cut off at one point This past week. Do you believe he's making these decisions on afghanistan and these leadership misteps. Well i would say it's a disturbing pattern where it seems. They cut off his microphone. Anytime you might say. Something that has handlers. Don't want there's no doubt that that president biden's capacity is severely diminished and his white house handlers. Amplify that impression when they keep them keep him locked up in a basement all day long. You know they've tried this basement line in the campaign and it didn't work probably because it wasn't true and even if it was after four years of trump voters are thinking abasement president doesn't sound that bad. They're also probably super bummed that if a mute button exists they didn't use it for trump gonna use during that boy scout speech but apparently this mike kathleen button theory repeatedly debunked as a thing in right wing circles so much so good. It's been repeated on fox news and even in an official hearing of the united states. Senate i don't know. Is somebody telling him that. He can't continue in our they to the point where they're controlling. When he has to end his speaking has he thought or read anything that people are writing about him and how they cut off his microphone rather than ask questions somebody in the white house authority to press the button and stop. The president cut off the president's speaking ability and sound. Who is that person. I think anyone who knows. The president including members of this committee knows that he speaks very clearly and very deliberately for himself. No one else does. Are you saying that. There's no one in the white house that can cut him off because yesterday that happened. It's happened the number of times before it's been widely reported that somebody has the ability to push the button and cut off his sound and stop them from speaking. Who is that person varies. There is no such person. Are you telling this committee that this does not happen that. There's no one in the white house who pushes the button in cuts him off in mid sentence. That's correct first of all if a but like that exist in shoemaker would have it for me because he is a power hungry.

"You've also expressed an interview stat. You have religious identity. Your jewish how do you reconcile neuroscience and religion are we living in a simulation credit binding advanced being a dance alien being a we a product of a higher power. What is your worldview. Wow i mean that's that's a lot of questions in one. I think it's funny because my teen year olds he. Sometimes we'll like wake me up. Mama mama is this assimilation very very into the simulation idea to completely bring it down to brass tacks. When i first saw the matrix a million years ago it rocked. My brain rocked my world because it felt it felt so accurate to a lot of the things that i had felt especially as a teenager and and honestly still continue to feel as a large teenager. Still kind of feel like i'm the same person they're just. You know older on the outside you know. I don't know that my belief power in the universe and all of the forces of nature which i choose to call god. I don't know if that's in opposition with the notion of assimilation. I also don't know that. I would put a necessarily a negative or positive spin on the idea of a simulation because mike concept of god in the universe is that it's not good or bad it just is meaning. If i were to ask you is gravity. Good or bad well. It's bad when people fall down and hurt themselves right but it's when we don't fly off the planet. So that's kind of how i think of of my concept of god god just is sold us forces of nature you know the tides needs. Do what they do. The sun comes up every day. I'm pretty sure. I like to point out to people. Even if you don't believe in god or have a religious practice if you believe when you go to sleep that the sun will likely come up in the morning. We have the same faith. We just choose to honor it differently and there's not judgment around that you know. I may say a prayer about it. I may feel a certain feeling but our faith is is really the same. So i don't know that i can answer either for you or your audience or my thirteen year old. If we're living in a simulation what i know is that you know. I have a religious practice and i have a cultural practice. That is very very focused on the here and now we're very much about you. Know what are you eat. Is there mindfulness to that. How do you present yourself. How do you conduct yourself. How do you interact with other human beings And that's not to say that that's the only way to do it. You know my belief is that there is oneness in the universe and every culture and every religious tradition is trying to make sense of it just like indigenous people have made sense of it for thousands and thousands of years. These are all different ways. That cultures insert bear humanness on something divine and in my religious tradition. God is unknowable. God is absolutely unknowable. There's aspects you can know there's relationship you can have. But the the extent of kind of you know our understanding of a larger journey of the universe. That's not for us to know but we do get to know how to love each other how to be kind to other people how to treat the world on the earth with respect so. Those are kind of the principles. Guess that i live by so probably simulation don't know if it changes how the rest of this interview goes but we'll say uniform. I liked that so the next question is this scientists you understand how complex the human brain how it evolved but you probably also thought about where this evolution is going to go like a million years from now what would be looked like as a species and that leads to another question if the universe is what fifteen billion years old are the other species ridiculously ahead of us an audit visiting us right now. Do you believe in. let's just boil it down to. Does miami bialik believe in aliens. I had to word it. I had to word it in elegant way. So it doesn't sound like interviewing you for the national enquirer. No i appreciate it. And i think it's very important and this is also not to. You know not to talk about my podcast. But this is a lot of what i do on my podcast is we take we take concept and try and find the science and the humanity under them. Meaning like you know. Even sometimes people go once acupuncture. Why do you use essential oils. Nyu crystals on your desk. And it's like well. I'm happy to explain it. So here's the thing with aliens. It is completely possible that there are beings and and probably pretty likely that there are beings of course out there besides us in terms of you know development. Yeah i'd be happy to say that it's likely that there are beings that are ahead of us and also i'm willing to grant and again my thirteen year old loves to talk about this. I'm also willing to grant that we don't have access to that kind of information or perception meaning. There may be dimensions that other beings operate on that we do not have access to and i will just say that i loved the movie arrival. That's the amy adams. Is that her name. You know the redhead and like the things with a suction cups and the language like that's one of my favorite movies to think about our perception and how far we may be away from even understanding and not to get religious but in biblical times and in many ancient traditions. God spoke to people all the time right and the notion is like god doesn't speak to people and i just said this to my almost sixteen year old. Said what if god is speaking. And we've lost the way to listen. And that's kind of how i feel about this notion of other beings. There may be communicating with us. And we don't know how to listen or we don't have the tools or the consciousness yet to listen with and that's like super that's higher level. It's very i'm not trying to sound esoteric. I love the idea of wonder. I love the idea of maybe and of magic. Yes a scientist. And i do want proof of things but the fact is i'm open to the possibility that there's more evolution than this and if you think about the overlap between neanderthal and australopithecus an all of the the the homo is that came before us. Meaning we're homo sapiens sapiens. There is overlap between different processes of evolution. But i think what's important is is not to think my older son was like who's the most evolved being. Who's the smart is being on a plan. And i said i cannot answer that it depends what kind of wisdom you wanna talk about. You know there are things that dogs can do that i cannot. The dogs are much smarter than me when it comes to smell when it comes to loyalty kidding. That was a joke. But anyway i think it's very hard and a very human and very capitalist desire to make a class system around it you know and i like to think of us more on some sort of spectrum and continuum that is not linear and i think that's again what the movie arrival really you know helped. That's a movie recommendation. I love you guys to check out. Now let's touch on that topic. What do you believe about. God is gone in. Our grade is gone outside us is gone the more for genetic feel. What exactly is going to you. The concept that i was raised with which still resonates with me as an adult is that god is everywhere in everything. God is every molecule every person every breath. It's all around us just like the forces of science are all around us you know and that sort of a later interpretation of traditional orthodox judaism is not like it's about science but there are many scientists who are worth the ducks jews and have been thousands of years. Some of our most famous rabbis were also doctors historically and consultants to sultans and we have a rich medical and scientific history but that really is sort of my understanding of god. You know. I don't like to say like god is a feeling but my younger son actually has taught me a lot about the feelings of safety and security on wonder that we feel is divine so in that sense really everything does have the capacity to be touched by divinity. In some way. Do i think that religion is god. No do i think that people are a representation of exactly what god wants. No there's terrible things that happen. There are horrible people. There are horrendous. Things done in the name of god and religion but do not confuse god with the people who follow god. Those are two different things. I love that answer and man. I don't leading the chat that there's so much love for you right now in the. It's very very nice. I keep waiting for like the one superman comment. But that's just me. And so what if mom's words resonated with you type of message in the chat shoulder some that's nice. Thank so nicola saying this is absolutely my favorite type of conversation to be my neighbor. I thought that was someone said. I wanna be your neighbor. Crystal said love your perspective and personality bright educated and soul. Well grounded so the next question. Is this tell us about moments when you had a spiritual experience sound you might talk about altered state. You might talk about intuition. You might talk about coincidences i. I don't know what it is for you but tell us about spiritual experiences but affected you. I've never been asked this. This is a really beautiful profound thing to think about. The first that comes to mind was in the baha'i temple in a haifa in the north of israel so the behi- faith as many of you hopefully know is a beautiful.

"Ooh can. I say robert plant is is overrated. You can say whatever. I mean the whole i do. I like some led zeppelin. Do i feel it but you get into the whole. We ripped off songs thing. So i i'll go. I'll go robert plant overrated and amy adams underrated. How about that. i like it. It's great cabin antastic now. Now it's funny is greg. You said robert plant and you define who. He is lead singer of led zeppelin just making sure. I know it's an old guy but still making sure. Were you doing that for me. Yeah for you. I thought you were doing that. For demarco no demarco's everything okay. 'cause 'cause i thought maybe you could have said amy adams who is drop. Drop dead gorgeous or was in this movie. Catch me if you can all these kinds of things now. I'm reading those to you. Because i wouldn't have known like the name doesn't spark it for me so immediately. My first thought is robert plant underrated. I'm not like the biggest led zeppelin fan in the world. But i understand the magnitude of the band versus amy adams. Who when you said the name. It wasn't like oh. Amy adams i had to like literally had to google so for me. I'm going robert. Plant was underrate. Actually thought you would have known. Amy adams of everybody. I thought she's a very big actress for a very long time. Now every one of her movies yeah yeah. Once i looked up i was like oh man yeah i know her perfect all right cap. According to a piece in the new york times disney is exploring ways in which robots might get up and start walking around the park. Yeah disney imagineering has already put out a video of their prototype prototype baby groups but that's not it disney's newest robotics initiative which is called project kiwi is about extreme marvel and star wars characters. Huge ones like the incredible hulk. Tiny ones like baby yoga and so on is robots walking around disneyland overrated or under rent runner rated. I can't speak. I would say that it's overrated. Because i think many people would be walking around disneyland in here would come these robots and you'd be like okay. That's like mickey mouse or minnie mouse or goofy pluto. There's gotta be a dude inside those costumes right when in actuality those are robots. I've seen a bunch of these videos. That are going around. And i'm looking at these things going. What's going on here man. Somebody spending a lot of time a lot of money a lot are rnd building robots. So for me. I would just say overrated because i'm not sure everybody would know that these are actual. Robots might think that there's somebody inside the robot so like real robots like walking around disney walking around disney like a little baby groot. Yeah walking around. The world is not that. Show very similar okay. I'm done no more. I'm staying home. Laura was at disneyland three this week laura what do you think that will freak me out on us. It's just i love disneyland but just keep the magic going. Rather have someone in the thing and make like i know once they take it off. Its they're gone. I don't know the whole robot thing just freaks me out because i feel like we're getting closer to the end of the world. Just be honest totally agree to say it. But i agree all right demarco. The celebrity hygiene debate is in full force. Remember mula kunst ashton kutcher said that they rarely bathed their kids. Then matthew mcconaughey. Hey said that. He hasn't worn deodorant in three years. They'll sorry thirty-five years. I missed the five thirty. Five years and lizardo is now getting involved in all of this and she said on her instagram story that she agrees with mccown mcconaughey and that when she stopped wearing deodorant she started smelling better. Wow is not as wearing deodorant overrated or underrated. I'm gonna say underrated. I got into some cabs over in europe. You know and my goodness man. I mean really bad b. Oh and it was just normal to them. But i mean it was like stopped the car i need to get out like brown's you know funk the car just smelled bad and he just lived in it and it's a no deodorant type of play a part of the world so but to me underrated but i always thought that about mcconnell. Hey some of those roles. It looks like he doesn't use deodorant. You know what. I mean you can just see it in them that dude. That guy looks like he's stinks. Stinks right he's like he's been up all night. You know i gotta say Deodorant to me monster issue here. I mean if you ever been to a gym and there's somebody working out next to you and they've got this philosophy they don't believe in deodorant and they smell to high hell and you're just like what you do demarco's trion be real subtle as you. Lean your your nose over towards your pits. 'cause you're just trying to make sure it's not you that stinks you know right Listen you gotta wear deodorant. I would like to know this from matthew mcconaughey if you're not wearing deodorant. What are you doing to ensure that you don't stink. He's cool man. He's cool meaning he doesn't swag doesn't smell. He doesn't stink. He's the earliest. He thinks he doesn't. He's that guy you know what's what what kills me at the gym is. i'm the clean guy i'm deodorant. I'd take showers. But every now. And then i come in there with like sour sweatshirts sour shoes. Because they're my favorites right. So i don't know i'm stinking. Join up not keep stopping the treadmill next to me and i since we all seem to agree that the rain is actually an important part of hygiene. Let me throw this secondary question at you ready. Yeah what's the best deodorant. Ooh whatever's closest. I don't really have a favorite. I switch you know does it. Do you stay with. I do do. I'm gonna tell you the best deodorant going. Ed secret really strong enough for a man but made for a woman and guys if you're manley enough to handle it i'm telling you right now. Secrets the best. The best smelling or the best working. It smells great and it keeps you dry. Yes was gonna say it up do you. How do use the gel or the solid. That's that's key right there. I like the solid. Only one exception though but schalke solid yet because what happens is guy you get the little white you know. Now dude you gotta do the gel. The jealous awesome. They have if you for guys right. 'cause i know guys have a little bit of a little bit more just saying they have like the clinical strength one. That's not fair enough. Curly hair gel. I love that. Secret is amazing and they have all these different like smells. I can't. I can't do solid favorite flavor of secret deodorant. His powder fresh. Oh my god it smells so good. That's the white one bro. Chaki one. That's that's no good guys. We're going to tell you shouldn't be surprised. I really well. They have the product. I'm not the only person on the planet that uses it sticks to. I just feel like they don't yeah no longer works. Yeah please right as a public service announcement we we implore you to..

"Hey up first listeners. It's a martinez. The pandemic has taken a toll on people's mental health recent. Cdc report says the toll has been much higher for unpaid caregivers. Those taking care of loved ones shortwave. Npr's daily science podcast has that story. Just a heads up. We do talk about suicidal thoughts in this episode about mental health. Thanks you're listening. To shortwave from npr. Since it began one thing is certain. The pandemic has taken a toll on people's mental health and re to you want to talk about a group that has been hit especially hard by this and that's caregivers yes. We're talking about unpaid caregivers specifically parents of little ones. We've seen or read stories of how they've struggled during the pandemic and there's another group of caregivers we've perhaps heard a little less about those taking care of adult loved. Ones people like amy adams of seneca illinois in december. My mom had a heart attack. While i was out in colorado on vacation. She ended up having to have cardiac bypass surgery and over the next several months. Amy's mother battled one complication after another going in and out of hospitals and nursing. Homes and amy as mother's primary advocate and caregiver developed severe anxiety. Yeah so caregivers. Like amy there the subject of a recent. Cdc study re to. What did that study find. Yeah so at this. Recent report found that about forty percent of. Us adults survey identified themselves as unpaid caregivers. So people taking care of kids younger than eighteen and or adult loved ones and two thirds of that group said they were struggling with adverse mental health symptoms like anxiety depression. Ptsd in the month before the survey. That's a big number and it's much higher than those. Without caregiving roles on the show we talk about caregiving how the pandemic has made that crucial role more difficult and this new data which shows how this past year has affected caregivers mental health and we'll.

"We heard from amy adams at the beginning. Tell me a little bit more about what these past. Few months have been like for her and for her mom yes remember. Her mother had a heart attack. In december when amy was away on vacation soon as she found out she hopped on a plane. Flew back home to be with her mom but i was not allowed to go into the hospital to check on her. See how she was doing so. She ended up in three hospitals before she ended up where she had her surgery with family support whatsoever and she was too ill to even talk on the phone with me. Well that sounds really hard. And was this all because of how things were at the height of the pandemic because you know hospitals were limiting visitations. Exactly an emu who's a psychiatric nurse tried to stay on top of her mother's condition. Yeah treatments by phone. Virtually but because she wasn't seeing her mother's medical team face to face she says it was really hard for her to get even basic information like say her mother's lab works and so by the time she was discharged two months later he me said she felt very out of the loop unprepared to care for her mother. That sounds like a really stressful situation and became even more stressful wants. Her mom came home. Yeah and you know all admit that having had to take care of sick parent during multiple health crises in pre pandemic times. The work is very rewarding but also incredibly stressful just under normal circumstances so throw in the pandemic and things became even harder. So it's no surprise that amy's mental health to a toll for a good month or so. I was just like not sleeping terribly. Anxious airy ball overwhelmed. An amy is not alone among caregivers and feeling this way i spoke with one of the authors of the recent study mocks isler. He's a researcher at brigham and women's hospital in boston and mark said that unpaid caregivers in his study reported a range of adverse mental health symptoms should be symptoms of anxiety or depression symptoms of cove nineteen trauma in stress related disorders and suicidal idealization. Either wishing that they had gone to bed didn't wake up or having seriously considered trying to kill themselves. Well and re to suicide is something you and i have talked about on this show before yeah. Suicidal thoughts can really span a range. Yeah so you know. Mark mentioned people having thoughts of going to bed and not waking up those are sort of suicidal thoughts and mark said forty percent of the unpaid caregivers. In their study reported experiencing those passive thoughts and thirty percent had more serious suicidal thoughts so actively considering ending their lives and of course there was some overlap between the two groups because some people had both passed even more serious active thoughts. Just deposit here. We did an episode about how to support those struggling with suicidal thoughts. Re and i and we've shared it in our episode notes. So if you or anyone you know is struggling. Help is available. You can call the national suicide prevention. Lifeline one. Eight hundred two seven three eight two five five. I'm so glad you brought that up.

How's the most important thing is to write something authentic i. It's really hard to say.

"You feel. Did you feel that if you were being respected in that moment there. Billy hardy laughs. Neil cool who was guilty at the snicker during the horror stories. Not me. I think it was billy i swear. I heard a snicker snickering during the horror story. Honestly i haven't. I'm like animals and stuff so i mean i don't actually actively remember like laughing during that i'm going to. I'm going to have to pull back the tale of the tape then later re tristan just moved. It's one of those tristen. Go sounds i feel like i. This had a great cast. I feel like bryant. Harry harry attari henry. Like he's a great actor. I love him in atlanta. I love seeing this guy. But i feel like he's just taking on anything these days he's like the new samuel l. jackson and he's just like man. I'm gas me anything in anything little bit. Little bit he never he never. He gets a lot of roles but he doesn't get like a role that's great significance in the movie. Yeah like a you know. You've got the two guys from atlanta. And i feel like la- keith. Stanfield and brian tyree henry. And i feel like the stanfield getting all the major roles in primetime lenders playing detective and psychotic conspiracy theory podcast in godzilla vs kong. I feel like i feel like lakeith fucking career just like exploded. And i'm not saying bright -tarian using he was in the child's play movie too. So i feel like the same role as this man. I feel like i love the guy. I think he's fantastic. Man i fucking. I'll give this a taste it man. I thought the acting from amy adams. And gary oldman was was really good And then i mean you're white russell. I thought was fantastic. I was pretty predictable like they give you like that. Close up of like that that window on the roof. You know that glass window. That's on her roof of her apartment building. It's like wow. I wonder what's going to happen with that later. So so it's pretty predictable but overall it was enjoyable. I'll give it a taste it. What did you think. Billy i got him in the same vein as you guys. I think it's a solid taste it I did like the amy adams charactered. So was interestingly. She's also a psychiatrist and having these issues. So that's always like an interesting dynamic to see how that plays out. And i i did like the cinematography are you. Know flashback sequences. She's trying to kind of reconcile some memories throughout the movie and there are some cool scenes where they're in the present sense within this house but then they are you maybe scenes from the past kind of literally inside the home itself so i thought there was some really cool shots. So you said gary oldman being in it was solid raw cast. I wasn't trying to trick anybody or be super smart..

"National International and local news tomorrow on morning edition. From NPR and W bur. I'm Peter wrote down. I'm Callum Borchers. It's here And now, earlier this week, we checked in on Ohio as the state rules out the first coronavirus vaccinations for teachers. One of the first places to get the vaccine was Youngstown. Amy Savage has been teaching kindergarten for more than 20 years at ST Christine's, a Catholic school there. She got the first dose of the vaccine on Monday and joins us now, Amy welcome. Hello. Thanks for having me glad to have you and you know, some people have described their first dose is feeling like a weight has been lifted off their shoulders. How do you feel? I feel that exact way. I'm very excited to you know, I feel I feel like I have protection and it's feeling good. And did that sort of line up with the way all of your colleagues felt as well or was there some schism there? There were there were about 50% 50 50. We had some hesitant, you know, due to different beliefs and but We're all here for the safety of our Children. So we're hoping that we made good choices. I understand that even before you got the vaccine, you've been teaching in person this year, and I wonder how your students are dealing with the pandemic. I've got one kindergartner Amy Adams know how you explain the public health crisis to a classroom full of them? It's our parents have been fabulous. We had been out of school since March. So my new friends that came in I teach kindergarten. You know, the parents did a wonderful job. Just letting them know that Even though there is a pandemic As long as you are being safe and wearing your mask and sanitizing they've been doing a phenomenal job at handling it. Did you have basically full in person Enrollment? Or did you have some teacher of some parents? I should say who held their their students out. We had some parents who held their students out. I in my particular class had two students who had parents with underlying conditions, but we would zoom with them on Fridays. Some of the older grades zoom on a daily basis with their Children because of the attention span, But here in kindergarten we did his best is we can to make contact with our friends who were virtual I understand You did Maura of the virtual schooling at the end of last school year, right at the sort of outset of many lockdowns, and I'm curious if you can compare and contrast to sort of mentioned earlier that the attention span is hard for kindergartners. I mean, is there any replacing the in school experience? There really is not an easy replacement. When we left in March. We had a report with the kids, so it was a little bit easier to interact with them and get Then until learning mode When we started this year, we didn't really have that report yet. So it was a little more difficulty to build it through the video, then in person, so that took a little while longer, too. Get accustomed to that. So since you came back to the classroom this school year have you had any major outbreaks within the school? You mentioned some of the precautions that you were taken earlier. We have not. We have been very lucky. Many of our outbreaks have been up more in junior high with the like 7th and 8th graders. Teenagers who maybe are not following us closely, but down in our primary hall. Which is kindergarten through third. Our students have been fantastic. They are always wearing their masks. We have our plexi glass around us. And we're constantly sanitizing. So it sounds like you have felt pretty comfortable this year with the precautions within the school building. And, of course, now you've had the vaccine. But there are a lot of teachers across the country who don't feel that way. We've seen some high profile protests about safety concerns. In Chicago, for example, there's a showdown between the teacher's union and city officials and a big part of that is about their desire to get vaccinated before going back. The classroom. So you know you've been in this profession for a couple of decades. I'm curious. What? What You think about that? I mean, do you support colleagues in your profession who say they just don't feel comfortable going back to the classroom and until they get the shot? I do support them because I I myself in August felt very nervous. I have you know, parents at home and grand parents and I wanted to make sure that we all kept safe and that I wasn't bringing anything home to them. But as I got to school and our school did a great job with the masking and providing shields and providing the appropriate PPR that we needed, But Yeah, I can see where you know other colleagues. If they don't have that support and have those resource is available to them. It could be scary. Do you feel like it's part of your responsibility now as one of the early recipients to kind of evangelize among your colleagues? Yes, I do. About half of our staff took it. So we have half that are actually waiting to see how those of us that got it. Are reacting to it, and I feel great and I am I've been going to encourage them to also join us, Amy, you said. Your students have adapted pretty well, two different classroom environment, to say the least. And they've even been sort of holding each other accountable for Washington's and wearing masks. How do those Conversations go among kindergartners. Well, they're quite easy. If somebody's NASCAR's down those simply say, Mary, Pull your mask up. If they're too close, they'll say, Could you stand back a little? They react to each other, and they do it. Actually good life skill to learn to, you know, sort of gently correct and have potentially off awkward conversations with your peers. Absolutely. But they also do listen to us teachers, So they take our word as gold. So I try to be as positive and encouraging that you know, together we're going to get through this and if we all help each other We will get better sooner. Well, Amy Savage. We're glad that you're back in the classroom and that you've had your Corona virus vaccine and we appreciate your time with us. That's Amy Savage, who teaches in Youngstown, Ohio, and they got her vaccine on Monday. Thank you. Thank you so much for having me and I wish everybody else out there. Good luck and get out there and get your vaccine. Indeed, in California. The number of confirmed cases of covert 19 is down more than 50% in the past two weeks, But nearly every county in California is colored purple on the state's color coded map, indicating the highest level of risk. NPR's NEDA Ula be wondered why purple became a worst color and even scarier color than the more traditional.

Google's Amy Adams Harding on why digital newsrooms should 'act like an e-commerce player'

"Welcoming hike aliens great to hear lessons Yeah so maybe. Let's get started by going through some of the publishers that you work with are they mainly like news focus or do they really just kind of run the gamut. We are mainly focused on news. Kaley but as as you might imagine. News has taken on broad connotation as of late so We focus a lot on local news so working with publishers like lee enterprises or village media up in canada. All the way up through You know the great lady new york times. We work with newscorp the some of their publications so really does run the gamut. Yeah and it sounds like it really runs the gamut to with the new of maybe people on staff and like the size of the publications themselves it can be one or two people and it can be hundreds and it really does depend on the type of news publication that they're covering we also work with broadcasters for example and some longer form news content like business insider or some of the magazine publishers. That are more news focused. okay awesome. yeah so I imagine that at the beginning of twenty twenty the concerns that your publishers. That you work with I'm not sure if you call them clients or partners partners. Yeah i imagine that the concerns that some of your partners had at the beginning of the year are probably very different from the ones that Came into the picture and say march or april But can you talk about Maybe what some of those focuses were at the beginning of the year. That might not be as top of mind now in where some of the New focuses began coming into the mix. Yeah i'd say that it's it's not that the the focus of these publishers has shifted one hundred and eighty degrees but it has sharpened so for example One thing that a year ago we were working with many local news. Publishers are in a more nascent. Forum would be there reader revenue program. I mean we redirect revenue. We we all know that the new york times has made a tremendous success out of their subscription business. But this didn't always filter down to your much smaller local news players but ask the pandemic emerged in as we saw a large and quick drop in ad revenue local news. Publishers called us up and said wait a second. Everything that you've been telling us about forming our reader direct monetization strategy. The time is now. We need to lean on our readers to be able to support ourselves through these uncertain times with the pandemic so that i would say that it has sharpened and accelerated that focus for our local news players in particular. Okay yeah that makes a lot of sense and i know for some of the larger publishers. That myself in my teammates have been covering over the past few months A lot of them decided to remove the paywall from virus related content But that ended up being a pretty significant driver of new subscriptions. I would say You know it was kind of interesting balance of lowering the paywall on that content. Got people more familiar with the brand. Made them wanted to like to support the journalism. More Is that the same thing that happened with some of these smaller. Publishers or more local news based publishers. Did they do that same tactic. Or what were some of the strategies that they took on well whether they employed whether they even had a paywall to begin with Or not the top of the funnel was being filled by this increase in demand for news especially around corona virus and we had several large events globally and in this country so it wasn't just corona virus with that was kicked things off in the beginning of twenty twenty and so our news publishers large and small found that they needed to take advantage of this opportunity to create loyalty amongst their casual readers. And that's something that my team actually focuses on quite a bit That idea of user engagement funnel so capitalizing on the opportunity of what These very important and intense news stories introduced in the facts. We we've been working with a publisher in the philippines called wrap ler and they are one of the largest digital only on news publications. They are and they had concurrently both corona virus reporting as well as their local election and might team worked with them to capitalize on. How do you. How do you take these new eyeballs if you wanna think about it that way and introduce them to the importance of your product and drive loyalty because he can drive a user down that user engagement funnel you can Create loyalty loyalty is the largest predictor of reader direct revenue acquisition. So we worked with them and it was highly successful and they were able to create marge increases in both the readership and their revenue because they were on top of their Of the funnel and driving readers down the funnel

What 'Arrival' Gets Right — and Wrong — About Linguistics

What 'Arrival' Gets Right — and Wrong — About Linguistics

"Jessica con was a teenager when she first learned that linguistics is a thing. She stumbled upon story of Your Life, a science fiction novella by Ted Chiang. It's all about linguist- trying to figure out how to communicate with well aliens I. Think it was actually probably the first time I heard about the field of linguistics. And then I started college the year I saw an introduction to linguistics curson signed up for it. These days Jessica's field linguist at McGill University in particular I work on. Syntax. Basically the way words combine to make sentences in a few years ago. She got an email to be a consultant on a movie, a movie that was coincidentally based on the exact novella she read as a teenager. I'm not trying to draw any connections that aren't there, but you read about linguistics for the first time in a book that became a movie that you became the the person they consulted with. It's amazing right? It's pretty wild I mean when I first got the email that asks me to work on this film I was really ready to push spam because it sounded very strange and then at some point I saw the story of your life and I wait a minute I haven't thought about that in years and then I responded That Film Twenty Sixteen Sifi hit a rival. So real quick. In case you haven't seen it. Here's the gist. This is Davy arrived. All of a sudden twelve spaceships land all over earth trouble saying. And we don't know why they're not doing anything after landing there. Still no signs of first contact or just the sitting there are at least and so governments around the world are panicking trying to figure out why are these alien spaceship sitting here and different teams are going into try to understand why they're here what they want. And we are following one of these spaceships that I think is somewhere in Wyoming and the. Amy Adams who is a linguist? Production. And her job is to decipher the alien language and figuring out what they want. So today in the show another installment of the Shortwave Science Movie Club what the movie arrival got wrong about linguistics what it got. and. Whether or not Field Linguists Jessica coon has actually communicated with aliens. Honestly it's a tossup. I mattie Safai you're listening to shortwave NPR's Daily Science podcast. So Jessica you were the linguist who consulted on the movie arrival. So give me a big picture sense of what that means like. What did they actually have you do? Yeah. So the first thing I did was I got to read drafts of the screenplay which was really fun because it's a very common thing to do and academia we read things and we give feedback on them but usually not this fund of a scale committee meeting ever exactly yeah. It was very funds so I got to read the screenplay and they especially wanted. Feedback on how linguistics and linguists were represented in the film. So there were lots of places where I gave feedback and they incorporated it into the film. There were other places where they would say, okay just, Kinda yes. Yes. Thanks for your help but really in the end linguists are not Hollywood's primary audience and we're not going to get everything right here and now linguists just get to join like all the other fields of people who get really annoyed when science misrepresented onscreen. So welcome to the club. Sorry, we're not GONNA change that. The movie makers also put Jessica through some exercises, basically giving her a whiteboard and asking her would you do if aliens showed up and those exercises actually informed one of the most famous scenes in the movie when the main character we spanks played by Amy Adams. Schools the guy in charge of the mission about the fundamentals of linguistics. He asks her for a list of vocab words. Essentially, the keywords she was planning on teaching the aliens, that day. Cavaliers responding. Lock. help you understand. So Amy. Adams walks over to the whiteboard and scribbles what is your purpose on earth? This is where you want to get to. The question. Okay. So first, we need to make sure that they understand what a questions. The nature of A. Request for information along with the response then. We need to clarify the difference between a specific you. And a collective you because we don't want to know why Joe Alien is here we want to know why they all landed. In purpose requires an understanding of intent we need to find out. Do they make conscious choices or is their motivation? So instinctive that they don't understand a why question at all and and biggest of all, we need to have enough vocabulary with them that we understand their answer. I love that scene Yes that is one of the great triumphs of of linguistics in the film. I mean this was. So this was one of the most interesting parts of the movie for me because I'm you know this idea of building a base for understanding of a new language is like really interesting and and like the first steps in trying to communicate, which is you know like your thing right? So but it's something that I think we. Just, don't think about into see it in kind of in practice was so fascinating and I'm glad to hear it was like pretty well done your eyes question Mark Yeah I. Think I. Think it was really well done. I. Mean I think one thing that is really neat about this movie and what makes it such? You know interesting and intellectual Sifi is. They're not just typical humanoid creatures. We don't already have some kind of magical universal translator in place, and so we have to figure out how how do they even communicate and will we be able to communicate with them given how advanced they are that they've made these spaceships have arrived on earth I, think it's safe to assume that they have some advanced form of. Communication and that that form of communication should have patterns in it that we could eventually decipher. But thinking about you know, is it audible or is it written or could creatures communicate with smells or we just have no idea what could be out there if it's audible is in a sound frequency that human

Emmy nomination voting underway

KCRW's Hollywood Breakdown

05:19 min | 3 years ago

Emmy nomination voting underway

"KCRW sponsors include Netflix, presenting the original series, when they see us from Asia Duve Rene based on the true story of five teens who are falsely accused of a brutal attack in central park. Emmy eligible in all categories. I'm Kim masters. And this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Matt felony of the Hollywood reporter, and Matt EMMY voting is open. And, you know, there's always a lot of second guessing and campaigning, and it's all good this year. However, we're seeing the end of game of thrones. And that is a, a huge potential category killer in the best drama category. And for that reason we have seen other series that do might have been competitive kind of stay out of the way the eligibility for the Emmys ends at the end of may. So you often will see a lot of shows premiering in may just so that they can get into that window to be eligible this year. We saw the opposite in that best drama series category. The Handmaid's tale is premiering in June and stranger things. Netflix is premiering in July. And those were two shows that typically would be in the EMMY race Handmaid's tale, obviously was the first streaming series to ever win. In the drama series. Emmy category this year. They're both steering clear of game of thrones. Because the expectation is that game of thrones is just going to run the category and win and went out. I mean it would be the you know job well done award. However, you know, I I'm going to confess that I not a person who watched game of thrones. But I do watch my Twitter feed and mandate. I see blowback about the way that series ended. Yeah, I think there was a lot of negativity. And I think people were surprised by who ended up on that iron throne, but I don't think ultimately voters will care about the negativity. I think that this is a game changing mammoth moment in television. People say, we will never see a show again. Like EMA thrones. I, I don't know if that's true, but voters are going to without in my opinion voters are going to go for the show and, and give it the, the this year, I wonder if it had been vulnerable. Maybe the strategy was bad. You go ahead and compete against it, but who could afford? Seen that potential vulnerability. Meanwhile, you know there's the limited series category. That is very competitive when we see HBO rolling out Chernobyl net flicks, rolling out the central park, five drama series from ABC Vernay, when they see us, and they are coming up with kind of, you know, interesting claims to bolster the profile of how popular how highly rated, you know, the metrics may not stand up to too much scrutiny. But this is the game that is played. I'm always very skeptical of anything that Netflix says because they do not have any third party verification for their ratings claims but they claim that when they see us is the most popular show on net flicks every day since it debuted in the US, which would be pretty significant, considering that they have, you know, things like friends, and the office that are perpetual popular, and then HBO came out with this dubious thing that turnober was the highest rated show on HBO in its history. And they were using some IMDB ranking that purported to assess fans and critics. And I think people just kinda laughed at that big little lies. Maybe you know, I would say for sure that both of them are really well reviewed and very high impact, especially in the case of when they see us we'd seen Linda fairstein him roundly, the sex crimes in New York being hounded out of her foundation and. And other gigs. Now, the one of the prosecutors the this is have think people are finally seeing that what happened in that case through. I mean it's been the subject of documentaries. It's not news. But David Verna through the dramatization has really shown the kind of impact that entertainment can have in the real world. Yeah. And it really shows this category of limited series, and how much it's grown over the past few years. Remember, this is a category that the academy basically did away with combined it with made for TV movies, because there weren't as much of these being made as there used to be. Now there are so many limited series that this category is absolutely packed. If you look at just the Fossey Verron program on FX that got a lot of critical attention Showtime, made a lot of noise with escape Denham Maura HBO has turnober as you mentioned in sharp objects had Amy Adams and then true detective which is in this category, and is somewhat diminished from its heyday. But that, you know, had an amazing performance by. Marshall Ali in that. And that doesn't even include the George Clooney thing catch twenty two which got a lot of attention. So there's a ton of amazing limited series that are competing against each other. Yeah, I would say outstanding performance by Maharshtra Elliot's redundant at this point. Thank you, Matt, thank you. That's Matt Bellamy editorial director of the Hollywood reporter he joins me this Monday at one thirty on the business. I'm Kim masters. And this is the Hollywood breakdown KCRW sponsors include Showtime, presenting the comedy series kidding starring Jim Carey in what Rolling Stone says is the part, he was born to play more at S H, O dot com slash f y c.

And Chris Murphy, Connecticut Democrat describes it as a national security crisis. All senators all talking about the resignation of secretary of defense, Jim Mattis. I am joined now by another Senator Tim Kaine democrat of Virginia Cain sits on the Armed Services Committee, which will have to confirm whoever is nominated to succeed. Mattis Senator Kaine welcome. Could it be on the show? Thanks so much. I gather you're not happy about secretary Mattis impending departure either. No, look, I've been in public life for twenty five years. I'm an armed services member from a state. That's connected to the military. I have a son in the Marine Corps secretary Mattis has one of the best public servants. I've worked with in my career and his resignation, and especially the asserted reasons for the resignation should 'cause every American to be really really worried. Although was this inevitable Madison self in the resignation letter that I soon you're referring to there. He said the president deserves a Defense Secretary who shares his vision of the world, I think that's very diplomatically put. But if you look at the letter, basically, what secretary Mattis says is this that the two pillars of American security that are constant. And this is a guy who spent more than four decades providing security is a marine is one building strong alliances among democracies and second standing up. To thorough -tarian adversaries, and he basically said Mr President on these two values you and I disagree, and we've certainly seen in a president who undercuts allies at many opportunities using national security waivers to punish Canada and Europe, for example, and then cosies up to a thorough Teheran's such as Russia and and Kim Jong Hoon in North Korea. And that reason asserted by secretary Mattis is very very troubling. Have you talked to him if you talk to dramatically? I have not talked to him since the announcement. The announcement set off a firestorm now leave news, but ambassadors of European and other allies reaching out to Senator saying sort of what's going on announcements this week about Syrian Afghanistan, obviously, causing huge concerns among allies who were side by side with us. In those theaters. I mentioned it's your committee armed services that will have to vote on whoever is named to succeed him. Who would you like to see? You know, it's too early to say that there's a person that I'd like to see, but I want somebody who will be willing to stand up and speak truth to power one of the challenges. And this administration is those who do general McMaster, the national security advisor and secretary Mattis, they get pushed aside, but we need people who are experienced who will look the president in the eye and and speak truth. And if the president can handle it he can't handle it. But I don't want an enabler. There's been too many neighbors around this president and the first two years like bobbleheads saying yes to everything, and that's not what this country needs right now changing gears. We're speaking to you from Capitol Hill. Are you all making any progress on a voiding a government shutdown at stroke of midnight? Well, we had a bipartisan deal just two days ago passed the Senate unanimously with the blessing of the White House, but the president yesterday decided to do a one eighty and say he now if you can't get five billion hill shutdown government and punish eight hundred thousand plus federal employees. Who would not get as long as there's a shutdown? Yeah. I heard you on Sarah calling him the Grinch about to steal Christmas, which I will give you credit. It's a good line. But subsidies. Senator or else? Well, thousands of people who are going to have to work without being paid over the holidays. You're you're absolutely right. And that was what we did when we gave them a bipartisan deal less than forty eight hours ago that he agreed to I know. But here we are society afternoon. So what happens? Well, what's going on? Right now is the vice president, Jared, Kushner, and Mick Mulvaney. The new chief of staff were up talking to Senator Schumer, and we're seeing reports out of that meeting that there may be an announcement soon about a path forward possibly a deal. I understand those administration officials went over to talk to speaker Ryan. So this is very much kind of a work in progress right now, no reason to shut the government down. Absolutely. None just a few seconds left. But, but we're also hearing from Shimer's office, and they're saying that this deal would involve funding for border security, but not the wall would you vote for that? I voted for it many many times comprehensive immigration reform and twenty thirteen head border security money. We offered the president deal in February with border security money. He turned it down border security is something that we all support. All right. Thank you so much Senator. Alright thanks much Virginia. Democrat Tim Kaine and we are talking with other Republicans elsewhere on the show.

Meghan Markle's family 'banned' from top reality TV shows

"Talking TV Talk. About eight should? Also, watch it we've got Alexander's Alvin? On from the. Decider decided common. Great great website the affair is coming to an end is that right Alex, what do you know about this that is correct we. Don't know ton of information is currently running a season. Four that ends about mid August but. Decided to end the show on their own terms they're gonna do one more season after. This season five? And then that's, it for the shell we don't necessarily know how. Many episodes or what's it going to be on this plane what is this I'm sorry the I've never Yeah it's been? A big hit for oh Oh Attorney is really. Love More attorneys, the actress in it right from turning west Ruth, Wilson and Josh Jackson aka pac- from Dawson's creek Say they're going to wrap it up after another season which is, a very, nice for the actors, very nice for fans of the show to habit, and on its own terms Over at HBO they've got a hit on their hands with this Amy Adams show sharp objects haven't seen it yet, here great things about it people were hoping, there'd be more but it looks like maybe one season an app for this Yeah one of our great writer editors Megan keys it's actually currently out at the TCI which at the, television, critics association tour where there's ton of panel's going. On so she has a lot of coverage going. Up about it and one. Thing that happened was Casey. Is the head of. HBO and the very first panel, came out and said Nope new season two for sharp objects You know it's it's, interesting when, you look. At that compared to save big little lies both of them were based on books nobody really expected to, be a second season of big little? Lies, because there's no other books beyond, that but. According to him all of the actors on big allies were super into doing more they really wanted to pursue it. So they ended up doing on the other hand sharp objects. Very dark it's really hard character for Amy Adams to play with story is going to be done after one season, so, no season two for the show This is a story? That I, read, the sporting Alex and I didn't clear it with you I don't know. If you're aware of it but I. I'd love your comment on it Megan Markle the new Princess there in England there's now been a ban. On British television saying, that her family you know she has an extended family with a. Half brother and a half sister. I happy and say beat up the half brother, it gets, it gets. A little crazy they say that no member of Meghan Markle's fat family is allowed to appear on a. British reality show did you hear this No I haven't heard about that they say that damaging to, the reputation, of the royals so they've put out an edict saying in America if. You wanna do that, because I think her half. Sister is up for some American reality. Show but they say as far as great British television is concerned they won't have it good for I. Mean listen that's okay Not everybody needs to be on a reality. Show right I think ultimately. There right get something that. Megan Markle do and she. Was getting into royalty is, that her tire life would. Change forever and ultimately it is, going, to change your family's forever, and, it's it's kind of, nice that the other. Folks well just, profit offset. And, drag you know potentially dragged. Her name through the mud as things off it happened. With reality show so I'm all for that I'm still watching big brother I don't care about Julie ten less moon Vizor anything and I just have, to say please if if you like, fun television maybe a, little violent but I love preacher. I love, it, love it That. Show is absolutely bananas. Insane and it's only got crazier I was talking. To? Some folks most recent episode? Which opened up a pretty much, opens up with about five to ten minutes it takes place in one room. And honestly they have some of the best staged fights. On television it's all mostly one take the camera just. Kind, of zips around the room, has four, different characters are fighting it's funny it's exciting I love. It and three words crazy. Betty Buckley I mean I'm. Telling you Betty Buckley for. Betas enough but he is, Madam Lansdale and she is. She is a main Maine woman, wow, she's really a great actor, I, didn't know she had, that inner that's excellent. Right I'm watching. For that Do this story for me Carlton chooses is one of the guys who I created. Lost and I know he did some work with net. Flicks on a, show called locking key that I don't really know too much about but there's been some news about it what do we need to know there yeah so this is actually based on one of my favorite. Comic books of all time it's, written by Joe hill Stephen. King's son the art is by fantastic artist named Gabriel Rodriguez at some dancing around development for a really long time there was. A initially going to be a series on, FOX they shot a pilot which if you can track. Down to spend tastic that never got, picked up then they were going to do a series of movie is. Those never, got picked. Up the shot another pilot for, Hulu. Which also. Didn't get, picked up and now finally after years networks, has officially picked it out with Caulton cues. And Joe hill working together as. Show. Runners for the show they're. Gonna do to ten episodes in skimpy. On at. Some. Point in the future And. In general pitch, for the, weird house up north has a bunch of magical keys that each do different things a family moves into the house and battles a dark entity who wants possession of all the keys sounds good Yes it's. Fantastic at a little bit of a little bit? Of a spoiler full disclosure I actually make, a small appearance in the book every. Really, yeah really so fingers crossed I'm going. To be on the. Show oh that's so exciting what are. They going to, have a lost reunion because I would like a reboot. Of loss so then they can finish it properly they they've talked about that quite, a bit Linda Lavin, collagen cues they've. Said, they. Are done. With it they're completely lost but they expect because it was such a popular property it's only a matter of time. Until ABC or somebody else does her boss reboot but when they do they're not involved oh interesting. All right Keep our eyes open for that Alex great to talk to. You, thanks.
