Insider Info with Annie Kreighbaum and Nick Axelrod-Welk
"Our guest today are anti creek bombs. And nick axelrod welk anne neck i love. I love a duo on the podcast. Welcome thing so excited to be here so let me let me give a little. A little highlight with your bio. Anne is a beauty journalist turned exac and former brand lead for glossy and nick is a former reporter for l. and wwe which is women's wear daily correct. Yes it is there. Were these things called. Newspapers that we used to read would get delivered every day. It was the fashion newspaper. Like the most. I one of the most iconic fashion newspapers i would say and you are also the co founder of the personal brand. Excuse me personal care brand. Necessar- said that right. It's been awhile since i've taken french. And you co founded the iconic beauty site into the gloss and together. They co host eyewitness beauty which is a beauty and pop culture. Podcast available wherever you get your podcast. You guys to focus on the business side of beauty. And i'm curious with this question. I'm not even i'm wondering if it's even possible for there to be trends in beauty in twenty twenty one when when the beauty is feels like the world has kind of just been uprooted or or changed by this pandemic but what are some trends that you are are seeing that you're seeing and that you like for yourself well on the kind of inside baseball cy. But sure it's not news to anyone like you describe yourself as like more of like a novice like outsiders which i think you're an expert than you give credit for it. But but for since the since they started tracking this stuff color cosmetics which make up products. I don't need to explain to anybody. Listening with that. Means has been like the category that's been consistently the number one revenue driver for any like big brand just for the industry in general like like the biggest challenge of the pie. I don't know what color cosmetics is so that's basically when you walk into a sephora and you're you're the first thing you see is makeup skin care is in the back of the store and the fragrances at the back of the wall like. That's all intentional. In order of sales. Yeah oh lord was at a certain point. Yeah learning okay okay. yeah so. The industry is is sliced up. Land like hair care. Skin care whatever color. Cosmetics has been like since the dawn of time like the number one biggest category billions of billions of dollars. Will just last year skin care has taken over which hilly coming from my glossy and like kind of seeing that wave happen. I think it really started with k beauty coming into the us people on the internet. We're getting much more educated around like ingredients and different. There's going team. I think like the trend has been going on for quite some time. But just last year. I think with the pandemic And people being at home and having to diy more skin care. And i think too like people understanding like actually. I don't need to see a dermatologist. For every little thing. I can exhausted. Leasings myself Skin-care has overtaken. So i think that that's gonna continue for sure in like the entrance of all these mid to lower mid range brands in terms of price point like the ordinary or the inky list or natori like things that could all of a sudden by acid For ten dollars versus what happened probably five years ago which is either the hydraulic. Acid is from lemaire and it's two hundred and fifty dollars or they're probably wasn't even one you could buy in the drug store so i think that they're just exists now category of product. So that you know what like with makeup. You could buy ten dollar lipstick to get the same idea as a forty dollar up stick Same relative color now with skin care. You can sort of do the same thing. Okay so many so many questions. So i wanna i ask you because you mentioned this sensation of going into sephora and everything is so deeply intentional and i know it's the same with marketing and packaging and in thinking about like price points getting lower. Our is the quality of products the same so much of beauty just like markups and exclusivity and making something sound fancy and getting it in the hands of like victoria beckham or is there a true difference in quality so one anecdote i have. Is that one time someone told me in this completely rocked my world. That lemaire is made in long island and and that sort of says it all like you know. It's a cream with some like plankton. In it or you know no seaweed. I guess and it's made long island and they call it. Lum creme de la mayor and it's three hundred dollars Is that does that mean that. There's two hundred dollars worth of ingredients in there. No one hundred fifty. No one hundred fifty eight okay. So for context like the markup degree product but for a healthy cosmetics company business in general the markup on cosmetics from the goop and the packaging is eighty percent margins. So a two dollar what it cost you two dollars to make gold charge ten dollars for and that's like standard across the industry and you can't really knock a cosmetics company for doing that because they are so so cheap to make and to have investors to be able to pay the bills to be able to make this something that can really support a team and you know whatever and like grow a business. That's just industry standard so like. I don't think anybody's pulling the wool. Over consumers is this markup rate on the fashion. It's like some pence fifty percent or less of a markup. So that's i kind of a comparison. I forgot like what other interesting. I was about to say it. But i'm sure nick has a million. Well well yeah it's not. It's not an evil thing. The markup i think there's so many more there's so many more costs testing everything saying what's the difference between something that's like super expensive versus something. That's like a little bit more accessible. I do think that there's a huge difference. I mean i think what the ordinary did is like very interesting. And i still think they make like a lot of great products in general but you kinda of see like the texture of putting on like the heireann sierra and from the ordinary that costs you six dollars versus like one that has more ingredients in it from like a. I don't even know if they have one and playing with taught harper. Like it's this absorbs into skin better doesn't leave sticky feeling. Where's better under makeup. Like might smell nicer. These are all things that you have to consider. Its except for some people. It's worth paying for for others. It's not worth it and they'd rather just by the seven dollar one so okay so this leads me to my next question. Which is i'm kind of obsessed with this idea of dupes especially when it comes to here and makeup like and candles but not all. Dupes are really dupes. I kind of get into this. Like spiral do you believe. Dupes are real as possible to have a troop in skin care or makeup products. I think it's rare. There's certain things that you can charge more money. For the candle you can afford like a fragrance concentrations get a more powerful fragrance certain synthetics that are really expensive like amd brett Which is a mosque. like an animal derived. it was an animal derived. Musk now it's all Made in the lab But that is like a really expensive thing to create. So that's why a lot of like less expensive candles expensive fragrances. Don't have that smell
How to practice effectively...for just about anything
"Mastering any physical skill be it performing pure wet. Playing an instrument or throwing a baseball takes practice. Practice is the repetition of an action with the goal of improvement and it helps us perform with more ease speed and confidence. So what does practice do in our brains to make us better at things. Our brains have two kinds of neural tissue gray matter and white matter the gray matter processes information in the brain directing signals and sensory stimuli to nerve cells while white matter is mostly made up of fatty tissue nerve fibers in order for our bodies to move information needs to travel from the brains gray matter down the spinal cord through a chain of nerve fibers called exxon's to our muscles So how does practice or repetition affect the inner workings of our brains. The actions that exist in the white matter are wrapped with a fatty substance called myelin and it's this mile and covering or sheath that seems to change with practice. Mylan is similar to insulation on electrical cables. It prevents energy loss from electrical signals. That the brain uses moving them more efficiently along pathways. Some recent studies in mice suggest that the repetition of physical motion increases the layers of myelin. Sheath that insulates the exxon's and the more layers the greater the insulation around the axon chains forming a sort of super highway for information connecting your brain your muscles so while many athletes and performers at their successes to muscle memory muscles themselves. Don't really have memory. Rather it may be the mile a nation of neural pathways that gives these athletes and performers their edge with faster and more efficient neural pathways. There are many theories that attempt to quantify the number of hours days and even years of practice that it takes to master a skill while we don't yet have a magic number. We do know that mastery isn't simply about the amount of hours of practice. It's also the quality and effectiveness of that practice. Effective practice is consistent intensely focused and targets content or weaknesses that lie at the edge of one's current abilities so if of practices the key how can we get the most out of our practice time. Try these tips. Focus on the task at hand. Minimize potential distractions by turning off the computer or tv and putting your cell phone on airplane mode in one study. Researchers observed two hundred sixty students studying on average those students were able to stay on task for only six minutes at a time. Laptops smartphones and particularly facebook where the root of most distractions start out slowly or in slow motion coordination is built with repetitions whether correct or incorrect. If you gradually increase the speed of the quality repetitions you have a better chance of doing them correctly next. Frequent repetitions with allotted breaks are common practice habits of elite performers. Studies have shown that many top athletes musicians and dancers spend fifty to sixty hours per week on activities related to their craft. Many divide their time used for effective practice into multiple daily practice sessions of limited duration and finally practice in your brain in vivid detail. It's a bit surprising but a number of studies suggest that once a physical motion has been established. It can be reinforced just by imagining it. In one study one hundred forty four basketball players were divided into two groups group. A physically practiced one handed free throws while group. B only mentally practice them when they were tested at the end of the two week experiment. The intermediate inexperienced players in both groups had improved by the same amount
Ben Rector Gets in the Christmas (and Thanksgiving) Spirit
"Your christmas album of ben. Rector christmas is so brilliant so much. I'm glad you like it really like it. We were listening to it this morning. The office i've been listening to it. While i'm baking at my house through an thanksgiving song that hit like i mean people went nuts for that thing. I was actually really surprised. So i was gonna my manager. Greg was like hey like you should really try to write some original christmas songs and i was like well. I think what people don't understand about christmas music is it's they're used to the song so you don't really remember how good they are. It's really like the greatest hits of the last hundred years of music truly. You'd like i just write another christmas song. It's like the last three songs that were added to the holiday music. Canon gary and then wham and paul mccartney and paul mccartney went on like honestly like various weirdly similar since christmas and so i was just like been a million people. Try to write christmas songs. And even once some that are pretty good and it's just like i it's just tough to exist in that world because the classes are so good and i was like maybe right thanksgiving song so it came out like better than i thought it would and i thought it would just be like. Oh people will maybe like this song. That's great and then as it kinda started to happen like radio. A lot of radio stations played it and like it was like kind of rolling. And i was like what if this could actually become like the thanksgiving song i people reacted to it. More strongly than i thought they would. I thought it'd be a song and everybody was like this song. I was like that's awesome right. I mean apple picked it when it apple that made it. They're like song of the day is amazon amazon. I mean that is no joke. Then it was it was. It was a on the radio. Top ten song crazy. What a so what happens now is not you. Will you sing that when you are on the road next year i thought about that i was like i think in the month of november. I probably could really we did like how after thanksgiving because it went well enough that i think all of us were like wait. This could actually like if we pushed it for a couple more years. It's possible that it would happen every year because a lot of radio people were like we had to make this tradition. And i was like from your lips to god's ears like mass idea. You've had what i'd new can. I'm like a body going to be on my pinky but yes we had a caller just like what could we do to try to make this happen again next year. So i would imagine that. I will play it if i do shows november. That's a good month to do it. But i don't know if i could do it before then but i would love it if it became something any honestly outside of radio or whatever it just became something that people wanted to listen to around thanksgiving that would make. That'd be happy enough with that. I just i had door. It's so this is against unfunny. It's such a kind song. Thank you so much just feels very like friendly and understanding. I wanted it to feel like a like a warm hug. Yes did that. That's why you accomplish. That was the goal. That ain't how it feels. And i i will be interested i. I wonder if it's if it's the ted lasso of music in that you love that people get your face you gasped. Here's the thing in two thousand twenty. Ted lasso is the medicine we needed island. Think that will stay true and twenty twenty one and i think that's true of your song. I'm a big believer. That i think like sincerity is gonna come back because i feel like so much of pop culture in the last little while has kind of been like ironic and like not as much just like heart on your sleeve sincere and i kinda think that especially also with there being not just in two thousand twenty but in general a little bit less like human connection and a lot more like connection online or like digitally in whatever way i kind of think sincerity is gonna feel wonderful for a while. I think that's going to be like the new cool thing. Maybe because it just like so much stuff is a little bit cool and like irony. And whatever and i think that that stuff can be great. I think that some of the stuff that started to connect ted lasso other stuff like that. I think people kind of like yearning for like. Oh yeah just like good stuff connection. How did you decide. What christmas songs on this with. All those options. Yeah i honestly. Half of making the christmas record was just because it sounded fun to like to arrange and seeing some of those songs so a lot of it was just like i was like these songs on the most fun to do and i think the idea is that like my hope with the album is it will over the next however many years add to it at different places and have like other volumes of it. Oh yes so. I think instead of being like i'm gonna wait for years and make another christmas record like literally next year. We might just like do three more songs and do another like a different edition of the vinyl or something. Let so some of it was knowing that i was like. This isn't the only christmas record ever gonna make so there's no pressure but a lot of it honestly was just like these songs. Sound the most saying what a great thing about how music is created industry and twenty twenty. Plus is that you can go. Let's add three more to that. And it just upload to spotify or upload apple or yeah right. Yeah that's brilliant so it can be a thing that continues to grow with under the same umbrella of ben rector christmas. I think we're kind of honestly looking at it like it's like a air quotes brand where it's like you know not. I'm not gonna do it every year but like maybe every other year just kind of being like hey like we're going to do another run of the vinyl in another edition on spotify. That essentially will be apple music and amazon all stuff. That'll be kind of like another edition of this record. Do you want to write more thanksgiving songs or do you feel like that's the one i don't know if i could beat that one. I would love honestly to right. We joked about like oh. She just released as a gag. The thanksgiving song again with just slightly different lyrics every god this president and stay. Whatever i do think Another i think some of that song was a happy accident of like pressure. Just like this is maybe a thing but i think as soon as it was like cool do that again. It's like i don't know if i could. I would love to write. I'd love to try to write original christmas songs. Or maybe like a new year song or whatever. But
"annie" Discussed on Classic Movie Musts
"A three way balance beam. Which is the story itself. The tail were being told of alvie singer and annie hall and their romance but then we also have such a huge part of it. Which is the person telling us the story in in this case alvie singer and his narrating the experiences but then so much of it as well is i mean. We're actually. I would probably argue most of all engaged with the how this story is being told it is the telling of this story that becomes compelling in much the way that you would listen to a stand up. Comedian talk to weave a tale for an hour. Plus that's what's happening in this particular film that really the tale of the romance becomes I would say even tertiary to those other two dynamic aspects. Oh yeah the way he again. This didn't throw me off. The way jumps around to his previous marriages. Which is if you look at the film as a film about romance looks. It is our the relationships are can be difficult relationships. Ups and downs going back to his first two marriages and to his other dating experiences. Even though you jump around it all works all worked for me. I mean i didn't. I never felt last watching the movie. I just recently watched it. I knew he was talking about his past marriages and i knew he was talking about his future dating after he at slid up for a while and it really captures so well and one of the reasons. I think the movie is so well loved. It captures a whole idea dating relationships. What clicks went doesn't click a how you can be in women leadership and something funny and fun happens and being another relationship and the other person looks like you're crazy. Get in the kitchen scene of the of course. The the famous kitchen scenes absolutely right. And you i mean. I think what part of what establishes that so well i would imagine or you know what works for me anyway..

"To manage. Yeah I WANNA do that. I also WANNA do karate big time. Why why don't you why I think I will? This is all like when we're done with Gainesville but I want to find a place when we're finally like settle down with Gainesville because we are going to move out of Gainesville until I can't you start learning karate liar there because I believe and I've heard of all the things I thought we'd be like we had a really successful outing. Yesterday I show very exciting. Lots of tweets an instant story and here. I am everybody Eddie. I'm going to talk to you about karate now Interesting I love it so much because I've heard that once you settle in with a class I know there's like a name for it but like a class an discipline. Whatever you choose because you're different kinds of crotty. There's all kinds of once you settle without a teacher in a class. It's really it's helpful as part of the whole thing to kind of ride the wave with them because you progress with them and you learn the style see. I'm not sure if whatever's local here in Gainesville because aren't like its gains was kind of a smaller city that there are a million options around so.

Party ever period. I do not like surprises hardcore. Like the really averse to though lies. Oh I don't know and feel free to council it out of me I don't either. I will get so angry at a surprise that I have to watch myself how. How infuriated like I don't like being scared. I don't like being surprised. That feeling just is if if triggering is a thing. If that's the thing something happens inside me that I lose my locust of control so the idea of walking into my own house and fifteen people or they're saying surprised even though I know it's so sweet it makes me lose my mind right okay. I don't know why Great Surprise Party. Yeah Yeah I love surprises. Can we put together two stories and talk about a surprise I received yesterday we can? I was I looked outside my front door.

You don't like it because you've built a life where the only surprises you get tragedies.

Maybe I've just never had the injury I could build a dream life. I would cut out all the tragedy surprises and just be full of great ones. So maybe that's why I enjoy great one so much because I like the feeling of surprise or I hate the feeling of surprise and so I have we have done exactly what people who know. Us know personality types of nor any grim numbers would do where I have run. Where if the dead center is. They're always going to be surprised as you'RE GONNA experienced both kinds.

"Here. That's my biggest regret in my entire life. Really now I have never played on a team. Ever what leave never played a team? Sport ever never my parents. When I was really interesting my parents and I wanted so bad to play baseball growing up and parents did not let me. I actually don't know the reason other than I ask question to for the coffee. Where's that belief in question to? What was your reasoning? That yeah they had to of and maybe it wasn't I we moved so maybe it was an area that they wanted me to play in the League parenting complex. I don't hold it against him. But by the time we moved and got settled I was sort of in middle school and then it was a little bit past the like it was hard to join the beginner league kids in the beginner league real good and I needed basic help like how do I feel out. Oh I do this thing and so I never. I've never played. I've always wanted to play an organized sport. It seems so fun. It's so fun is it? Do you feel like it's impossible to start now. I don't talk to the is there. It's not impossible socially. I don't know that it's possible. I do not know what I would enter into that. I could even possibly not fully embarrass myself do do you know what I mean like. I'm sure that like me like a church softball league I talking and I was thinking is like a church. I mean a lot of my buddies play on those kind of stuff or an intramural soccer league which may be hard to start out because it's so fast but intramural softball league. I feel like you could totally do that. Yeah well that meeting. That might be a life goal when we move out of Gainesville because we're done in a year when we move out of Gainesville. I think I would like to find some sort of like a softball league. Yeah I answered. I think you would really love it. It is one of my all time. Favorite things is being on a team. But I've never had to deal with like you had to deal with like winning and losing like what if they lose my cry. I mean you might. I lost before but I'm like I don't know that you would. I mean I guess it would depend on how much you care. You're not gonNA probably play in the world series and so I don't know that you would. Maybe you will. I mean I don't Eddie. I don't know that you would cry. Maybe you would. Do you think you could feel yourself? Caring that much about a intramural softball loss When real into asking I get real into it but I've never had to. That's part of the team. Sport thing is knowing the the I'm laugh I got myself 'cause either. This is kind of a joke or a one hundred percent true and I think it's true but like I have never had to deal with the emotions that causes right right. Take a deep breath. You'RE GONNA go. We're going to walk down the line shake hands. We're GONNA pop in the car and head over we're GONNA go home and it's okay and then you cry a little bit in the car and then you you do the whole and you learn. I've never had to do that. I guess I've had to do on sports teams she did. Yeah Yeah So. She's a person Stafa they. They've both played much more organized sports than I ever have volleyball football them through that. So can't you? I think you'd be able to parent yourself through that really well. Yeah I will go with that theory. I still think I'm going to be taking a bat. And throwing it at the pitcher here. She throws a pitch towards new guy who moved to town just bat at. He must be re. Here's what they're saying. He must be really competitive here. Now see you guys real sporty.

If you're going to want to talk about the Su- I have had to really bad nights of sleep and last night. I laid down at nine and just slept until seven. Twenty-three I mean I'm glad did you make it all the way. Did you actually see? Yeah Yeah Oh that's good. I haven't I mean I've had to really bad night's sleep and so and so I knew last night I was feeling tired at eight o'clock and I was like just go to bed like you've had to really bad night's sleep. This is the beauty of corn is. You're not missing. There's no foam to be had. You're not missing anything. Just go to bed and so I did it right away but I started the process. You know we talked about on one. Show the process of waking up. Your House started process of putting my house to bed and and so I slept so long that I am. I mean I was working my voice out for like the two minutes before we started talking like. Hello hello allow do. It doesn't sound like I just woke up and then I you so then your morning voice. Yeah no I also slept well ice up terribly and I'm really sorry. I'm glad you slept world. I'm sorry so bad. The nights before leaving bad is one of the worst feelings. Isn't it just man? It's like there's just a cloud over the whole day and some people just sleep. Perpetually better you. Are you basically a decent sleeper. Yes I am a thing. I say often is that the Lord's kindness often shows up to me and travel. I sleep well and then my luggage always arrives. I'm a great. I have so much feel so much feelings for people with insomnia like I. I can't imagine one night or two nights like I've had this week and then I'll just go like how's life supposed to go on? How are you supposed to live like this? How do people live like that? I don't know tender towards people who don't get to sleep normally as you can imagine. I can't imagine so. I'm sorry you had a bad night's sleep. I got a Migraine last night which I used to get with some regularity during a particularly stressful season my life I would get a migraine every Saturday Josh so like when you stopped working that's right the the the adrenaline or whatever would empty and it was just a terrible two years of working in a church Well that's not a statement on the church. This particular situation was not a good situation and I would just I would just have like adrenaline going all week. And then I would wake up Saturday morning and be just a puddle and nothing which is no fun when you have a you know a life. You WanNa lead much less Brian. Who Care about kids? So I got migrant but I haven't gotten migraines in a long time but last night at ten o'clock I was playing call of duty with my brother and my friend was so sad. I had to sign off so real tragedy. Come on out of nowhere that it was kind of. I felt it a little bit during the day a little bit like little flashes of like. I don't have a headache or this is a little more than normal and then it started to progress and then by around time I was like Oh here comes and then I kept trying to push back and then by ten o'clock so I had this weird night's sleep where it was like You wake up having weird like am I awake right now. My sleep am i. what's going on. It was like this strange moment of last night. Just sort of turned into this morning so I really love that on our first big exciting moment show like we. We did a thing. We got our names on a thing. We're starting a new show. You woke up four four minutes ago and now it's probably seven because we're form seven and I barely slept so we'll just see what happens this morning. Okay Eddie. Here's what I know is that you have a list. You've had a list. My list is absolutely literally empty right now. So what's on your list? Okay first of all I would like to talk about kids birthday parties and not my own children but I was thinking of my birthday parties growing up and I was laughing at some of the birthday parties that my parents did for me and I was. I was wondering if you had kids parties. Why what are your little brother? What triggered this? I have no idea it was truly like okay. Here's the one that made me laugh. Usually most things on our lists have a reason they ended up there. But you just were like birthday parties. You were just dreaming of it in. Your sleep. I was. I was somewhere walking around something and just remembered the fact that I had a McDonald's birthday party and McDonald's or McDonald's themed at McDonalds so back in the day they had like a playroom birthday room and this was standard at McDonald's and there would be birthday parties there all day long and my parents got me like for third grade or second grade me and all my little buddies back there and we would. We would like stack up the styrofoam containers. See like who could stack them up the tallest and then they like brought out McDonalds McDonalds character came out and it was a whole thing and I found myself really laughing. One just the eighties of all of it. But can you fathom today going into a McDonalds and one of the employs is like is wrong on hosting party for your child right like how the or I mean I can? I can kind of see it happening. Chick-fil-a I could see it but McDonald's maybe not J. Hater to McDonald's right now it's just such a different thing and I was thinking about like my parents took me to McDonald's restaurant with all of my friends to have a birthday party. It seems like I'm I'm not saying everything on the list. It's good but I'm saying that this is a memory that I had and then the other one I had was that we had. I had a bowling birthday party which I took in college. I was very good for a while. Okay let's camp out for a second very fine. I hear Bawling Birthday Party. We'll all remember. Is that mark? Picket gave me a run. Dmc tape that he was not allowed to buy and he somehow figured out a way to buy it and get a any snuck it to me and I had no idea what it was and he said the words. This is GonNa Change you and I came home and I put on run. Dmc Co like quietly snuck it with the first thing that ever snuck. I think it was fourth grade and it was probably certainly the sneaky thing. I've ever done and I listened to that run DMC tape over and over again and I remember thinking like that birthday was a right of passage because he was ready to just is going to change. Yeah Yeah at sell dramatic. I love it so that was classic classic mark though I mean I knew that mark is but still so what was on my list. What did you do for kids birthday parties? So yeah did you ever have any little kid. Birthday parties at your. Yes I but my memories of them are more pool parties. Oh see that's fun and yeah 'cause my birthday's in July and so my memories are more around the swimming pool and around being it once I was a teenager. I was almost always at summer camp because my birthdays really close to July fourth and our churches summer camp is on the week of July fourth lead. I loved it. I asked is being at Camp with all friends for my birthday. Summer Birthdays rule. I know people get cranky because they don't get to have it with their friends in school but I mean around Fourth of July and camp. I mean that's magic. Yeah I mean my my favorite birthday memory is like being five before and we did like a little. My aunt and uncle did a surprise birthday party for just our family. We went and watched fireworks and we came back and it was decorated like Barbie and I was. Oh Happy. That is sweet. Were you the Barbie? Yeah I was into her. I liked. I liked barbies. I mean I think every little girl in the night in nineteen eighties like Barbie's fine maybe to some degree being like massively but I don't remember not being massively lecter a massive thing. It was just kind of like Kip. Strawberry shortcake I thought and Jim and the rockers where my two yes what kind of holograms how yes. I'm sorry Barbie and the rockers Jim Hogg. You're exactly right. Thank you for knowing that in correcting me because I may have watched a lot of cartoons that time and I believe Jim had a cartoon. Did she not yes she did. That's how I knew what was the song is ten minutes truly outrageous right. You have to watch it. I'm going to start on Youtube as they think that. This stuff doesn't influence kids. You and I just pulled thirty years later. Oh Man okay wait. Tell me about your bowling party. Going party was like we did that. Format works two years ago so that doesn't feel very outside of yes. Bowling Bowling Bowling has had a real resurgence because in the eighties. It was very cool or at least in my town area to go go. Bowling Bowling Party. That Bowling Alley was pretty close to my elementary school. That I went to and so it was all sort of like all the kids in fourth and fifth grade had the Bowling Party so my path totally succumbed to me begging for peer pressure. But but I think the thing that makes me saddest. Is that part of the party? They give you do the whole little thing in the cake and you play a couple of games and they come out and a pizza. They give you a bowling pin opin. That says like Happy Birthday Eddie. That's cool. Where does that go? 'cause I don't have it now. Where is it your parents? I know but I know they don't have it. They've moved there's and they did the thing a couple of years ago where they're like. Hey can we come up for the day and they just had boxes on my staff with. No it's nowhere because you don't. You're not gonNA misplace a bowling pin. Yeah I mean I think it'd be worth and ask them now. Well let's let's run an experiment. Let's see if they're listening to the show. And so mom and dad any idea where the bowling pin is. I'm not going to catch some not gonNA email about him but let's see if they reply. This'll be a fun social experiment where the bowling pin is. Yeah that's that's I would have asked. Yeah I've never owned a bowling pin. No nor bowling ball. Never run a bowling ball now. I didn't have to have when I took it in college because it was just like a Tuesday Thursday class and we just went and we always got the same ball. Everybody like got ball bother they use for class but I never bought one. I bet you had fun in college. Bowling I want to goof on that. That was a heck of a lot of fishing. Do both it can. It can be that I had so much fun. And you can goof on it. I didn't WANNA take. I started yet to take one Georgia and I started with a racket ball because I always thought that game was really fun and then I mc L. and so the next so I couldn't finish out this semester. Obviously and so the next semester I was like bowling sounds fine. I don't know it sounds funny and I got. I wasn't doing I wasn't. I never bowled a three hundred but I got to where I had multiple strikes in a in a game easily. Yeah I mean I got really good. I blade for an hour twice a week but you have some natural athleticism. Don't you play soccer and play out in bowling? Yes because people who have a basic ability to connect their body to the competition. I really I don't actually. I don't have that. I can try. I can I could probably GONNA baseball player but not like a good one of a natural like yeah I can pick up. I can pick up the next. I play sport. I play some version of some sport multiple.

"He's up brutal only makes them see the sorrow and the pity again and I really. This was paying attention to how a person comes up and wants to help her career. Who wants her to become an artist in her own right he rules says is she does her best to Fulham into the conversation? Give him an ego stroke. And here's a moment where she could do something new with her life. That's not about him in he absolutely sabotages. It absolutely won't let her grow and she has to leave him at the idea. We were saying before like he's holding her hostage to a certain degree like he you so she is a piece of his life that he has put there but he's not you know he doesn't want to share it and he doesn't want to grow. It just wants to be the way he wants on a shelf shelf exactly and I respect that scene for being in here Ito that scene take some honest he could have pulled. The parties are lame. I hate parties. But she does but he is is aware of what he's doing but it's interesting because you know he takes her to see Sarah pity which is a kind of a runner throughout the film and then at the end of the film he kinda. It feels victorious because she goes to see sorrow and the pity which again knowing he's an unreliable narrator who knows but you know maybe they never got got back together because we already know that he already fudges the ending but You know it never changed. So he he he still wants that victory like Oh yeah I did. I did change for the better like in his mind. He did change it for God. He's probably dragging sigourney lever to this hour on the pity. Oh absolutely I mean. Feel like who. What's playing sorrow and the pity that much I mean it's it's always playing in In this version of New York amy. We're talking about this movie now. Works on so many levels. And how Woody Allen's kind of this beloved Guy You I. I can't imagine people not liking this movie when it comes out do you. Do you have anything Allen. This mean rare. Yeah right and I am a true and saying that it's rare to find a Negative reviews feud with this one. I was like Whoa. Whoa all right? You're ready for this. Yes you might need to be holding on into something. This review is from John Simon in New York magazine and he writes with Annie Hall. Woody Allen has truly under reached himself. His new film is painful In three separate ways as an unfunny comedy poor moviemaking and embarrassing self revelation is everything we never wanted to know about what he's sex life and we're afraid he would tell tell us anyway and now he does he calls anyhow if film quote so shapeless sprawling repetitious and aimless as seem to beg for oblivion and at this it is successful full. He says that the jokes are predictable. He gets some of the key plot points around here he says it's Annie Hall in bed during the day of casing. It's a breaking. He says Allen Drags a whole gallery of the most unappetizing showbiz personalities of our time. Carol Kane Paul Simon. Christopher walken listed as unappetizing personalities are most uh-huh and then and then here's wickets bad and then there is Diane Keaton's scandalous performance. Her work if that is the word for it consists assists blithering neurotic coming apart at the seams and acting style that is really nervous breakdown in slow motion. He says her performance is bad taste to watch in an indecency decency to display and he concludes that in the film. The fake entity in the scene or a scene played by a rubber. Mary Paris that she should have played any capable of. She appears here's to be of keeping her head above a stagnant pond. Wow so interesting I mean because he basically calls that everything and says the opposite of what we all love about this movie. Yeah when I heard this review I was like this critic see. I don't like to segue allies. Good I hate it when I get cycle. Tell you everything but this could exceed to be awkward about people being vulnerable seems to be. I WANNA movie where everybody's like we're great we're swell. Hello so here's a funny joke and he's so put off by how naked this movie can be in. Its emotions that he's like discussing can't watch it. Well it's sort of like Woody Allen. Go make your movies like like bananas again. That big slapstick silly. And you know and that I think is always the trap with a lot of filmmakers especially comedians. When you WANNA make a transition you get judged against what the expectation is of you like well? Why isn't it like that? It should be like that. And especially when you're woody Allen and you're in the face of it you you know that's why I think Jim Carrey does something that you know when he was at the height of his career and decimate weird cable guy which is one of my favorite comedies or or something very dramatic people are no no like they're judging you based on past performance and not on you. You can't separate yourself in a while. Many people did allow allows separate himself. It's guys having a hard time letting go and it's from New York magazine. That must have really. Just that reminds me of the hurt that Woody Allen Elon. Musk gotten like spike Lee. Got When The New York Times Held him responsible for do the right thing everywhere so bad. I almost wanted to ask Tony Roberts and then I check it out. I wanted to talk glow about this movie's legacy and there is somebody who doesn't really loved this movie that I think it's important to hear from. And that person is woody Allen and unle this whole quote in question and the answer so take a listen re contemporary comedy director is still trying to make any hall except for the Guy who actually made it. Who thinks the film is overrated? You don't you don't dislike any hall but are you. Are You a little bit bewildered. Why that film has has still so much sentimental appeal to people thirty years later and they still make a big deal about it and talk to people? I mean you know for some reason that films very likable. I've made better films than that You know take match point. Appointed a better film Purple Purple rose of Cairo is a better film. The French one midnight in Paris is a better film. Vicky Cristina bus alone is as good You know I mean I've made himself were he's GonNa but for some reason that got some terrorist manic inexplicable. Hold on people that in Manhattan too All over the world old Manhattan plays all the time it's got some. You know nothing that I did. I mean it it. Sure cheers chance in ninety nine mate them and I make them and through sheer surprise to me ones that I think a perfectly Africa delightful. Nobody's interested in and another one that I think is. It's fine alter interested in what I hear. I don't I don't WanNa be on any that would be as a member. That's exactly what I think too and I thought it was really interesting. Like this idea of Antonia not being able to experience pleasure. Is your joy like I think. There's a great quote that he said in another interview when I was researching this what do you like to do. And he was like oh I like to do anything thing that I'm not doing in the moment that I'm doing it like if I'm writing on like acting if I'm acting I like writing you know and I think that that is this this thing that always like chases you read rather there'd be doing something else and and you know. Look I believe Woody Allen as a GRANDPA one of those bumper stickers. That's like I'd rather be golfing thing. And it's crossed out making a movie. Movie crossed out complaining about what I would change based on what he was doing. Yes but I do believe that. That's not woody Alan being humble. I believe that Woody Allen being exactly the character that we know in this film Railing Against Society Society says anti halls gated. I don't think it's that great. That's it's so par for the course of the character that we know in meat. I don't think he getting there's other actors like Oh thank you. I know it's not you know. Well it's it's the people's film. Whatever he's not doing that I think he legitimately has bought into this belief that that's how the movie that's that's how he feels about it and yet it over and over again he says this is not an autobiography? The only thing that's autobiographical is. I've always been obsessed with sex. And that's it. Amy Is Very Simpsons. The Simpsons that I have pulled is from an episode called. Love is a mini splintered thing. I WANNA play a clip from the beginning and the end because it's all framed framed as this is Bart Simpson's any all picture if you will Bart Simpson with.

"He wasn't it amazing to talk to Tony Late. Let that was that was that was. I mean you've seen him perform farm I did. I actually saw him and met him. I was too nervous telling US backstage at Victor Victoria because I had a a very small connection into Julie Andrews and I got to go backstage and talk to her after the show and I got to meet him and I was so overwhelmed in thrilled to meet him. Because my connection to Tony Roberts via woody. The Allen was so much stronger than my connection Julie Andrews and I was just floored but what what a what a great guy yeah. It is funny how his character serves as like this angel. I figure I feel like in the movie. You know you devil or about yeah. He's he's both. He like nudges him in one way but then then he is a joke about sixteen year. Olds right yeah I mean look you know he's capturing an another part of you know the life that could be right like he surrounded himself by people like you know Woody Allen's character he doesn't want to go to L. A. Doesn't want to work on. TV doesn't want to give out awards doesn't want to do anything. And I think that that is so true woody Allen but looking at other people and seeing how they're happy I mean Tony Roberts is happy and having a healthy life and and it seems as we watch the movie his life getting less and less happy and and in in more small as we go forward. We everybody's leaving him behind literally. They're leaving him to go to California and you know he's really judgmental about about how. Tony uses that laugh track at his Sitcom that laughter doesn't count if unless it's earned which makes me think like him telling any your pleasure doesn't even count unless I feel like I earned it. He he has he just keeps setting up boundaries to make things harder for him to attain. I just have to say I would feel remiss if I didn't mention that Win Woody reality this film. He was dating to sixteen year olds. Oh I thought he was dating Diane Keaton during this film they had broken up actually a couple of years before they were executed along. When they stay friends of the XS He was aiding the two sixteen year olds name? Stacey when name Christina who would wind up inspiring Manhattan or both claiming that they partially inspired Manhattan baton and one of them in an energy gave a few years ago not recently said that after she dated him she wanted becoming a personal assistant to Jeffrey Epstein. And while Aamir really dropping bombs here just had to say and she also did say that. The only time she ever saw woody Allen reveal vulnerability was while they were dating. He got a phone call that he wasn't expecting from Diane. Keaton and I Keating called to say that this cat that they had adopted together had died and the his girlfriend at the time. The teenager wrote you. I looked at him and his hands and they were trembling and in that moment he wasn't even in the room. Don't you feel that that scenes in the film when she calls about the spider like I feel like He. His whole demeanor meaner drops when she calls like I feel like that's a great little seen any Russia's over there as if there was an emergency like that you know just a spider in the shower and not even that big obviously and he would not be the first person I'd call for that. When I think about this movie I feel such an intense connection to it but I also also recognize that it emirs a lot about my own life right and being a New Yorker and in being in this business and they often? I didn't think like does this movie. Connect for everyone or is this. Is this a coastal film. I don't know you get a sense. Since of how Woody Allen's films hit the Middle America. Well actually I wonder if like when you're just an American period you're so flooded with images of New York work in La that you're almost unofficial citizens of them to you know you you you know them so intimately like when you arrive in La for the first time you like. Oh Yeah I've been here right right you know and and the same thing with New York like this is what I have mapped this in my head and Alan Israel but these problems and what they're talking about going to see black and white films and and the literature that they're talking about it. It's it's very me. These are New Yorkers these are nineteen seventies New York problems. uh-huh right are are they clearly. This movie has affected culture. But we talked about this list. And we're going to talk about it for positive and negative. Is this movie lauded for. We're being great and everyone loves it or is it because this list is made by people in the seventies who this is on their playing field. This is what they know as much as they know. George Lucas gets and they want to support American graffiti. They WANNA support Woody Allen like the. I don't know if there's an answer for that. I certainly am not that removed. I would again for turn down questions to our listeners. I'd love to see what people's experiences are with Woody Allen. Do you feel that connection that. He is a part of my makeup as like as as a as a performer. As a writer. Like you WanNa live that life. I mean I guess what Harold. I'm seeing people dreamed about him. But that was in the seventies. Does that still bill. Does that retention still there. I mean I wonder because I don't feel the need in two thousand nineteen to say. We have to have a woody Allen film list. I don't feel that need anymore. Honestly Ashley this belongs in this list. But that that's I'm trying to Parse the different. This film belongs on the list. But I don't think Insert Woody Allen Film here has to be on the list. I I hear you saying man this film yes I love this film. I live for Diane Keaton. Thank you get robbed into Godfather movies. I love this Diane Keaton and I don't want to lose Sir and as for the relate ability I guess my maybe my to me at least in my own experience watching this and getting more now that I've had even more adult relationships ships and things hearing what popped out to me this time felt so different and it made it feel like such an even more mature film and I remembered it being that it wasn't just like adults play play acting drinking wine with ice cubes and talking about the grownups. Yeah well you know. I thought it would be interesting to hear Woody Allen thought about his appeal and this is from the late Seventies. He's talking talking about this is after any halls come out and you know. This movie is not a box office but it does do a critical hit critical cultural hit. So take a listen to Woody Allen talking about his limited appeal I have a nice loyal following. That sees all my films but it's not enormous. I mean I've never had a picture. That's you know anything close to. I don't know what to say the sting or or those kind of pictures you know have a nice sort of steady following that supports me and it's fine. I mean I I just assumed have limited appeal because that way I feel I can continue to try and do good work and not have to worry about the problem of of changing changing my work to include. Everybody and I love that that thought and you know again not to go back to the marvel and the Scorsese and everything but this idea of when you can have the freedom to have a filmmaker like this to release a film like this in the theater. I mean it was such a great treat to go see a woody Allen movie in the theater talk now. Barring the controversy. He had to go to Amazon right like you know. There's the he's getting you know. These filmmakers are getting shut down if they can't make these bigger things and I think there's a part of me that thinks I want. I want more marriage stories. I want all these movies that they don't have to hit on a big level and because you never know when one of these will kind of culturally impact us for years to come like you know what will be that that movie that little movie that becomes something that that that influences us for years and years I mean I want more marriage stories. I feel like I don't need more movies from woody himself. I think if there's anything that I've seen in his later films I think he is showing a lack of ability to empathize with other people in grow eight which I don't feel like I've seen any hall. Well this is a forty year old man who is self aware fair to question himself and I think time is forty years has gone on. I think as you become a questions. Yeah I mean I also think as an eighty year old. You're not you think you're just not asking why who's asking questions at that point. You don't need to. I mean maybe there are a handful but I don't know I don't know keep asking asking them but what I thought was funny was yeah we were talking about the Scorsese. NECE you're talking about the Francis Ford Coppola. When he went into the act? I found a quote from Woody Allen from nineteen eighty the two where he said this quote sequel. ISM has become an annoying thing. I don't think Francis Coppola should have done godfather three because godfather to was quite great and when they make a sequel. So it's just a thirst for more money and I don't like that idea and then you go shots fire. Everyone is firing all over the board. I mean you know amy. I think the thing that we are finding learning about this movie is that you remember the big moments even remember him pulling Marshall McLuhan out from behind a poster which by the way there were a couple a couple of Alz for that Marsh Mc Luna was one of the people he also maybe thinking about getting Federico Fellini or Lebron well to come out which I thought would have been interesting as well you think about that. You think about the animation scene you think about you know the big comedy moments but I think this movie. We're realizing is. I think the reason why exists in y kind of works is because of this deep emotional connection between these characters. Yeah I mean I mean to other name checking of like foreign directors. I thought it was really interesting that he decided not to have a score in this movie in less because because it was inspired by Bergman he was like Bergman. It doesn't use the score. I don't need a scores. He was imitating so much the great masters to make what people think of as his masterpiece that later on he was like you know what I can be my own person. I can add score back then. Then but yeah I I feel like I don't think Woody Allen today has grown up that much more than this character but I think I have grown up to this fill in it. That makes it really valuable to me like I was thinking in this watch. There's this one scene that I never realized was the pivotal in this entire movie. Be before in this time it jumped out at me because I've broken up with people for reasons like what happened in the house like this scene is why they break up. This scene is why they can't get back together. This is actually has is to leave him. And it's a little long but I wanNA play it anyway. If she has started singing she's now performs through the number and the Tuxedo jacket and record producer comes up to her and what he afterwards takes.

"Talking about you meeting what he Alan Elaine. Let's talk about doing play it again. Sam Right actually. I met him before played again. Sam in his first Broadway play which was called. Don't drink the water and that was a hit And ran for over a year. I believe that was the first time that David Merrick The biggest producer on Broadway began to produce Woody Allen. Plays and I was in a Broadway play at the time having replaced. Robert Redford in barefoot in the park which was a huge hit and I was in that for eighteen months and David Merrick wanted me to play the lead in Woody Allen's I play play. Don't drink the water and what. He wasn't convinced that I was the right Guy We have never met and he came to see me in that barefoot in the park about four times I think and we'd never spoken to each other. I kept going in and auditioning for this part in and don't and don't drink the water night. I kept not getting it. which is what happens to everybody when they're starting out in this business But eventually he came to see me. I'm baffled on the park. And he walked into my dressing room He was married to Louise Lasser at that time and she was with him and he said you're very good. How come you're so bad into auditions? Which of course anybody who's ever been an actor would understand? Yeah Titian is an audition. You know you know. Oh you don't know what they're looking for. You know what they want and you don't. You haven't had any help but to figure out what you should be doing. So it's really like shooting an Arrow in the air but Having seen my performance he said now. I'm convinced that you would be good in my place. So you've got the part and that was the beginning of our friendship. I was about twenty four twenty five years old at the time and he was very shy. Of course he's still is very shy so we didn't really Form a a close friendship until we're like five years later when I played a dear friend of his in played again Sam on Broadway and he was in that as well L. so we had a chance to really get to know each other. Well wanted to ask you about you. Know The shooting style of Annie Hall a lot of scenes play out in in essentially like a one or the cameras kind of locked off and it reminded me of the way that you would do a live show Broadway show did you. Did you like that style of being able I to have that freedom of letting the scene really play out well I I liked having job to be honest with you. I didn't have a lot of films before before that to compare style shooting and all of that sort of thing. I think the the movie I'd done at that point was I don't know why well before any hole I had done Serpico and I had done at Disney picture called million dollar duck but You know you do what you're told by the director and cinematographer cinematographer and the last thing you really find yourself thinking about is g. It would be better if they did this in one take or if they didn't do close ships or over the shoulders and I would prefer them to do it all in one grand shot. You know you can take those ideas and to put them in your pocket because no one wants to hear that. And that's not your job. If you're the actor I was reading a bunch about the film in there was a four hour. Cut in all these deleted scenes so I mean from doing the film and and getting to the finished product. How was that transition did you? Was it surprising to you to see the finished product. Absolutely no you know the actor has nothing to do with the transitions of anything. The actor is is does his last shot the crew. Applauds you get into the car and you go home. And that's the last time you you see anybody until the screening of it if they are kind enough to give a screening for the cast and crew not everybody does that So that's the first first time you go and you see all these people who with for twelve hours a day over a three month period but we're talking maybe five months later after you've gone home from the last shot. I think maybe the thing. That's the most shocking is that But camera isn't always on on one's own face uh-huh cuts away to other people very well should be. But but but it's you know if you're an actor you disappointed when when it isn't your her face on the screen so it's it's always a surprise but if it's a good picture you you should get down on your knees and thank in-cabin because There were few of those and there are so many people who want Parcham. I'd love to hear some of those scenes that got cut. I love to learn more about him. I was reading in his article from the New York. Times from nineteen seventy seven and it opens with you shooting scene with woody where you guys are hanging out with the devil here so I think I vaguely remember that has being a shot where we get on a street elevator. One of those things that they have Sidewalks they opened them up to steel doors. Open up and then people walk downstairs in order to get into the basement of a building or to go we get into an elevator and it starts to descend dimmed and suddenly I think if I remember correctly there's a third person in the elevator and it's the devil so presumably. We're on our way to hell. Oh I think it got repurpose deconstructing Harry. If I'm right because I feel like he goes yes he goes to see the devil and then I think you're absolutely right absolutely right. He shot another another scene for Annie Hall. That was never used in the picture because When he suddenly finds himself in Madison Square Garden Right and then he loves? Woody loves basketball of course. And he's on the court and He's going to shoot a scene in the movie with Earl Monroe one one of his great nick idols and what. He told me that he had the ball in his hands. It was an empty Madison Square Garden. There was nobody there except zip the crew and he wanted more than anything he could describe the to try and shoot a basket from center court. And he's a pretty good athlete would he. And he said did he just couldn't do it Why couldn't you do it? I mean nobody was watching. You had a few moments free. You could have shot from the Centre Court. He said it would have been too wonderful. Well I think with the original title of Annie Hall at one point was like Antonio which is like the idea that you can experience pleasure. It feels like that fits exactly into that zone. That's precisely as I remember it was called Antonia and it was about a guy who couldn't expect Experience pleasure according to woody as the picture Got Shot it was telling a story hadn't really intended. It was a love story that happened in front of your eyes as he and Diane fell in love during the shooting of this picture and it affected the way. Hey the script changed and the way these scenes were added or cut and he said to me he said I can't help it. He said that it's a love story. And if I cut away from A to a basketball scene Madison Square Garden. The audience will hate me. I can't take them off that that story that they want hell is. He has a direct. Obviously you have this kinship and you worked on Broadway and you've done multiple projects with them. How does he talk to you is it? Is it very blunt too or is it how does how does he direct. I would say it's on the quiet side and and very minimal Kazan once said that the most important thing with director can do is to cast the right actor in the pot and if he's done that he doesn't have to do anything else and I think that's partly why would he's yes Casting is usually pretty good and he doesn't have to do a lot of direction because the actor is bringing a lot with him. That's right for the role so As what he perceives it he used to have me and and and Diana some other actors come to his apartment one at a time and with the script and We would read the scenes that we had with him and he would say d feel comfortable with that line That that you have to say and I might say yes or I might say well not really because I don't know what it means or need say. Well how would you say it and I would say it. The way I would like to say it and he'd say well then say that way interesting he's say to me kind of taunting. Lee said say it anyway way you want and still get a laugh on it after you said it meaning being no matter what I did I'd still be the straight man. So you know. So he was he. He was challenged by a line. I might come up with because he would come up with something. Maybe it was funny. Work off of it. He's into any hall at in. Working with Gordon Willis list the DP as this turning point where as director. He feels like he now became an artist and it changed the way he made films afterwards and having made a lot of those films with him afterwards. Did you see that too. Did you see a chain. Well he's always been In My Estimate of a real genius. I mean I knew this this before I ever worked with more. Met Him or anything else. He was already a genius on the Comedy Circuit. I mean He. He was different than anybody else. In his associations you know all his connections to things were so bizarre that he was like a revolutionary mort Saul or somebody there was nobody like him subjects each chose to to talk about with so different and original it. so I wasn't surprised that he wanted to get get into deeper Subjects after his initial half dozen films which were all just purely comedic or or completely weekly satiric zilog is about as original as anything ever made since Chaplin and Keaton Buster. Not Diane. So it was. It wasn't all that surprising to me that that he walked into deeper territory. You know it's interesting because I think when you have a performer. Like Woody Allen You you think of him as A. We're seeing him as the person that he is. But obviously it's an amped up version of there are things that are from his real life. They're taking. There's no matter what the film and I heard that this whole scene where you're calling Maxwell's kind of based on something that happened in your relationship right Yes yes yes yes we. We were getting to know each other at the beginning of of the play on Broadway and we decided to meet one day for catch in Central Park Mark. So we we're GONNA meet at Seventy Second Street and Fifth Avenue so I was like five minutes later something like that and I saw him about a block away and I started to yell his name. I said where did he would he would he. I'm here I'm coming. I'm coming and when I finally arrived at where he was standing in his army field jacket and his is Baseball cap and other disguised. A Persona I said. I'm sorry I was late. He said that's okay as is it. But don't ever call me woody in public semi said why not and he said because people will then know that it's me and they'll turn around and you know they'll look at me and they'll you know. WanNa WanNa talk to me or get an autograph I said is it. Don't you think they know that it's you. Because you're standing on Fifth Avenue in the fanciest neighborhood in New York York City jacket and and you know dirty sneakers and you're standing here. Nobody else looks like that around here. Their own suits and ties Isan overcoats and everybody looks like they they've succeeded. I don't think that's might be why they know what you he said. That doesn't matter he's just don't call. Oh me woody in public. I said all right I said according to something else I'll call you Max. How's that he said fine? The next for the next two months of our friendship. I I cold Max that called a maximum phone. You know. That's where he was and all of a sudden one day my phone rang and I picked it up and it was his as boys but he said hello. Max which was puzzling.

"Way that is incredibly personal but not realizing it and I love that. I love that we have a salute to an editor also four hours. It feels like I'm surprised that AF I didn't just owner the for our cut and put it up there because like a ninety minute movie. How how dare they look list but again it's a great thing to show? The all comedy should be ninety minutes. I'm a big believer in this bloated thing where everything everything has to be two hours a dozen. Just keep it short and simple. Yeah I mean one of the people who saw like a midpoint cut. That was two hours and twenty minutes. They called it quote the surrealistic stick in abstract adventures of neurotic. Jewish comedian ultimately uninteresting. Just kind of a surreal. Exercise is by pruning I appreciate the the willingness to be able to Prune it away and put Diane Keaton as the Star. Yes that's lovely. I feel like this film focuses so much on her. That it's absolutely beautiful. I mean he said that like writing Diane Keaton and this is sort of a long quote but bear with me. He said before any hall he always wrote quote from the guy's point of view you then when I was leaving Keaton shoe so funny and she was so smart that she opened my eyes to so much just by experiencing things with her. I started to look at the world. Is I think it may have. I've been William Gibson the playwright who said that when you love someone you have experiences through their eyes and I still look at things there is. I can emphasize I can empathize with are seeing the same bridge or there's a movie movie the same sunset or the same characters talking over dinner. I see through her because of her. I started writing for women in so I appreciate that like I I. I think he's really sincere. There was going to ask you about this and not to represent all women but what I really loved about this movie was I think it gives a very layered and three dimensional portrayal of a woman in a comedy film and I think in the many copies we've seen of this film. The woman is always are more times than not shortchanged right. It is more dominantly dude focus. It's like oh the guy learns to grow up and give up his childish things or you know and I feel like this is a movie that if you watch it as a young woman or young man or are an older man and older woman you can see both sides so you can have a hero in both sides you know. It's not just a dude movie and I thought that was actually. I think that's what I pulled from it. This time a little bit more allow this. She is as well form does he. Is I think so too. I don't know if it's growing up in having more relationships and thinking a lot about how you mutate a little bit depending on what are you with that. I was able to see we talk so much about like the Anti Hall costuming and this was really paying attention to how the costuming shows his effect on her like win. Their relationships ships are bad. She starts dressing like him. She's wearing these darker kind of jackets and more black turtlenecks and things and you see that she is a very different person and the movie it flat out out says so and somehow I missed it in her previous relationships like when she was a pretentious director actor guy that she became this artistic downtown girl. And when you look at our costumes assumes the movie is saying he is ruining her life even through the close. He's making her a different person. You play very well. I'll yes study you. Oh God it would've been a dumb thing to say right. I mean you say you will right away. I asked to say you play well. Oh God any well oh well Lottie. Da Lied Isla you you WANNA lift Oh why You got a car. You mean no I was going to take a camp. Oh No I have you ever Cau- so if you have a cost so then then wh why did you say. Do you have a car like you WANNA live I. Jeez I don't know I wasn't if I got this. Vw Out there but it's your yeah. Yeah would you like a list that anyhow there is the real Annie Hall and away. That's any hour when she's single and she's not being influenced in any way by him. You know they they say the Diane Keaton actually were on clothes. And that seems so Diane Keaton to me right there you know. I think she is vibrant and alive and it's odd had fascination about wanting to make the person that we fall in love with to become more alike us even though the thing that probably attracted us to them in the. The first place isn't that they were like it's it's a it's a struggle that I think we all have because once you get into a relationship you you lose that individuality I think Lorne Michaels said this quote and sticks out to me. It's like you spend your entire relationship trying to make this person into what you want them to be and then you leave them once they become that. Because you're sick you don't want that person and that he probably said it better than that but I decided idea idea that you were kind of changing the thing that that connected you and I don't know how to avoid that fall into that trap. Yeah exactly like he starts wanting to share the books he loves about death. Like have this book about death. Stop Reading Cat Magazines or whatever the accusers magazine sound. Great like you like kept magazines. Have this book on death. And she's like okay is like you should go into therapy. And then her being in therapy starts being one of the keys that makes her realize she's unhappy with this relationship into this going and it makes miserable in a way because she is able to talk out loud in here when she's unhappy. We already talking about how Woody Allen is so closely associated with Elvis singer but I also think that Diane Keaton has been locked amber as we think of her as Annie Hall and people like you. You Know Diane Keaton. Her real name is Diane Hall and her nickname is Anne and I think there's a lot of Diane Ni right. I'm trying to figure out how this would work. Well I'll have Diane. Keaton tell you a little bit about how her nicknames came up and if it's actually even true what's your real name Diane Hall My name is Diane and people used to call are you anne. Never they never called me any no. They always call me. Diane or di Di Stuck When I was really young it was diapers diapers? I mean really nice things like that so you don't ordinary very ordinary type person. So I think he he captured the essence of that. Yeah I mean the Lahti dust I never said Laudi done my life until he wrote it but I was a person who is you know. Couldn't complete a sentence so so I think that is interesting because I think we want her her to be Annie Hall so much and I would buy that. She is less Annie Hall than he is. Woody Allen I mean that makes sense because I was really on the drive here I heard heard the anti was her nickname to when I was just messing with di any I don't understand I KINDA WANNA call bullshit on this because I don't know where you any from Diane. I mean if your name is Diana anybody caused you any. I'm pleased last now. I'm curious about this but she does still dress like this character. I'd watch this Brendan Gleeson Movie. That came out this year. I don't even remember the name. But she's like like a rich woman and getting a divorce or husband died and Brennan gleason is homeless and so she wants to help save his shack and they fall in love in any way. She's just exactly like any hall in the whole movie. She's got a little belt. Got Little Hat on hoping I love it. I saw her once at a party. And I just was so impr- she still carries herself in this way that whatever she's wearing whether it's long gloves or like she is the most interesting I'm in I'm I wanna I wanNA watch her. You know she always. Is this amazing fashion plate of something that no one else is wearing. Yeah I which is why. I think it's interesting that there's been in so many fights over. Who came up with Annie Hall? Look like Ralph. Lauren has tried to take credit for it. He's like I designed some of those pieces so obviously they are mine and other people have been like him you. You designed like only that Tuxedo jackets or you don't get to. Graham any wholeness. Their costume. Designer apparently hated the. Look that that Diane Keaton was wearing but but then the costume designer think took a little bit more credit for later as needed to me is really fun. Like I love the idea that it reminded me actually of Katherine Hepburn Number Katherine Hepburn love to pants and brought this pants. Look to the films in the forties. Diane Keaton feels very hepburn to me. Oh you now that you say that. I can't get that out of my head. That's a brilliant comparison like it really is they have their these forces of nature very different But also they carry Harry themselves the same way. I love that. Yeah there's even a little bit at screwball heroine just in who Danke news right her inability to finish the sentence which I feel like identify With very deeply. And she said when Woody Allen said he was writing a comedy for her she's like I don't tell jokes like how are you writing comedy for me. How can I do comedy? I'm woman who was in the Godfather a father and he was like just who are. You don't have to tell the joke now. That sounds like you are the joke. But in the nicest way Williams I think he's writing for her quirks quirks. Her quirks are. She's not telling jokes. She is portraying this character you know and and she's doing it really. Well what I also realized about this movie when I think makes exit way more powerful than the clones and they keep on referencing the clones but it starts talking about Star Wars. The clone were really Confu. No no no no Django. Fat Comparisons here. Amy But the movie opens with Woody Allen as a forty year old man and you know in these clones not star wars clones but in these clones. That are stealing from this a lot of the Times. You're making Woody Allen movie about twenty somethings things are thirtysomethings and there's something about being a forty year old man that locks this movie in a different time like he is an antisocial character. He's not going to change time for two lives exactly and you don't often see that any but no but they think that that's a different story it is. It's not okay. Oh my gosh. What will our future? We'll have kids. I think there is a it's to me. It feels like a New York story. I mean obviously it's New York story But it captures people who live in New York. I think you're you. You live your life in New York and you may start your your family life a little bit later and I think that's something that's actually now caught up Culturally but back then. It sort of New Yorkers carried that with them you know they were getting married later. It wasn't at the forefront of their mind and I think think the problems of falling in love later in life like what is convenient to do or what is just easy versus like actually challenging yourself and getting out of that that that bubble and what makes us movie for me triumphant and going back to Diane Keaton is. She is triumphant she she grows. She's got the ARC and and in an An amazing way and so this also just cool to see a character of that age evolve. She He seems to think of her evolving as disastrous like when she moves to California and starts wearing white and I love that. There's this kind of visual joke. Where so many of the people in California are wearing white all joined the same Colt Holt? Yes the white. The health food restaurant. They're eating at was a colt run. Health Food Restaurant by the way..

"Seven list wow every weekly. I suspect you're making up at least one or two things on that list. That's fine just do it. We'll carry on. Let's start by listening to tainting. All I keep sifting the pieces of the relationship through my mind and then examining my life and trying to figure out where the screw up come you know and a year your ago we were in love you know and and I just and it's funny I'm not I'm not a morose type. I'm not a depressive character. I you know I was reasonably assembly. Happy Kid I guess I was brought up in Brooklyn during World War Two. He's been depressed all of a sudden he can't do anything. Why are you I? OBVI- tell Dr Flicker it's something he read you ran universes expanding universe versus expanding. The Universe is everything and if it's expanding someday we'll bring a part in how will be the end of everything. What is that Your Business? That voice you hear is of course director and star Woody Allen who co wrote the script with Marshall Brickman and. It is a story about a break-up and a story about a man looking at his child at his past neuroses sees figuring out what his problem is and what he brings in all of his relationships. You have several people. Playing his ex-girlfriend's cocaine Shelley Duvall Desert Margolin and of course his Israel ex girlfriend Diane Keaton as any hall. And we got a mention Tony Roberts as his best friend Robert. WE'RE GONNA be talking to later in the show so excited talking Tony Roberts Amy. This film is actually very difficult for me to kind of talk about. Because I can't look at it from a unbiased point of view as far as being a fan of this movie is part of me you know I I love it. I feel like so much of comedy is birthed from from this movie. That the same way the pulp fiction kind of just is inside of me. That's how I feel about this movie. It's just it's such a through line comedic medically about any all. I'm so sorry that the thing that popped in my head was I just want to ask you. Do you have any woody Allen inside of you. Oh Boy oh boy sorry after that big disclaimer at the top OP. You're GonNa talk about it right away. What I that's just a classic vaudeville type of punch line? That I think would say himself. No I mean Yeah Annie Hall has been in the fabric of my life. As long as I think I've been trying to watch classic movies and what I'm really interested to talk about what you today is. How much this movie in? Different me on this. Watch the older. I get the more in depth in it that I don't think I even saw when I was a kid. Does that make sense like this is a movie that I think I saw woody Allen thinking he's cute and Smug and smarmy and the movie being so much on his side and then this I was like. Oh Wow this is really very very much a movie about a man looking at what a Dick is. Yeah this is a really triumphant story for Diane Keaton's character for any halt she. We basically separates herself from him to become a better person like he's holding her down and it's not really the trajectory that you see of many films that are trying to ape this movie. I think that if you look at comedy films Romantic Comedy Films. Everyone's trying to do their riff on this story. And this has a a sad ending ultimately that is actually really triumphant. The you leave feeling positive even though the two characters have gone their separate ways. Yeah I mean the chronology of this is really interesting because because you have woody Allen going through a lot of his past relationships chronologically you goes through Carol Kane who was his first then Janik was the second wife he eventually gets dating. Shelley Shelley duvall later on but his relationship with any happens in reverse. You see them at their worst right at the right at the start of the movie you see them slowly backwards in time backwards in time fall to the point where they met. Then you wash them progresses they fall in love and break up again and then you wash them break up again and so you you see the relationship it so many stages and I think because as say like why did I just assume. This movie was on his side when I was in high school. And I think it's because the first introduction we have any hall is when she is just furious and breaking up with him and mad they start. He starts their relationship at the worst part she says. What did you do? Come by way of the canal bed Munoz's standing with the cast of the Godfather and have to learn to deal with it. I'm dealing with two guys named Cheech. Hey sleaze I have a headache all right Warren Abedin. ooh U's beginning a period. I'm not getting my period. Jesus every time anything out of the ordinary happens you think that I'm getting my period. I think one of them may have missed every time we get introduced to her as being so mad at him. Also that throwaway line that is with the cast of the Godfather is so funny because he actually is with the cast of the Godfather. But it is her Diane Keaton and and also the movies. DP is Gordon Willis. Who Shot the Godfather? I mean this is and this is maybe a year after. The Godfather comes out the godfather references. They're staring at people in the park. And he's like that guys from the Godfather Joe how big that film was. But you know. I think this idea that woody Allen Elon is the hero is basically because he has all the jokes. And that's under the Diane. Keaton is not incredibly funny and charming and great but he literally he has jokes and and so I think you feel connection to him but he showing. He's a Dick Right here because he basically blames her bad mood on her period Korea like it's a really insightful examination of oneself because I think this character Alvie Singer is essentially what we assume woody Allen is has tried to deny over and over again but you can't deny when basically Alvie singer is a version of almost every character he has kind of played they all have similar elements in this character follows an incredible career trajectory of Woody Allen. I mean they're using real clips from the cabinet. Show they are you know he is ill. Cliffs Suck that forest and also at the end he's writing rating of play of any hall. Like which is it's so I love it but I mean that's what is so kind of jeans the movie and I I didn't realize it before he's doing so many things here from messing with timelines to jumping into animation shen. He is playing with very big ideas of talking to the camera. Interact with people. Some things feel like a documentary almost and then and are these real people. Are these actors stopping people in the street. It there's a lot of Really naturalistic performances. It's a really interesting movie. That fluctuates tweets between all these towns. But yet at the core is incredibly incisive and I think that that's what I've always kind of missed speaking of kind of like the heroes imbalance of the script like alga Singer is the one who's able to stop time right right. He's able to stop time and he's able to look at you audience. He's able to just be in this ghostly beige background world and be like. Here's how I see things. He's able to even take the other characters on this a Christmas Carol Scrooge mcduck version of of his childhood. He said we'll be like all right. Anne Tony You guys are coming with me. We're going to watch my childhood together and comment on it like. It's the Christmas past or something. So he's able to do all these things to try to convince the audience to be on his side. But this I really noticed noticed how much woody Allen himself is calling himself out in his crecy in the scenes themself. Because here's a guy who spends his entire movie yelling loudly to the camera about everything everything he's mad about everything he's embarrassed about in every time Annie Hall tries to say I'm upset about this. He's like Sh- people can hear you. So he's insisting even in the movie that he gets the last word and I think he's aware of the hypocrisy. Well yes I mean. The final scene of the film are one of the final scene is like I said he's writing a play about the relationship where he changes the ending you know she decides to stay with him in his version so ultimately Alvie singer is an unreliable narrator because at the end of the film. We know that the story that he's telling telling is based on the way that he wanted it to be or the way that he saw himself which I love and I think that that end forgives everything nothing else because it shows him for who he is. He's not trying to hide it. And I think coming about this film at least the way I I saw it. It's a very in different type of film. In the way it was built. I think the first version of the script. It wasn't even a love story. I actually listened to Marshall Brickman his Co. writer talk about how how the script evolved and was not even a dominant character in the first draft. There were a lot of women different wives that was the one that ultimately became carol. Cain was a wife and when he was much different the the girl the dominant other you know part of the relationship was a New York girl. We're all just like woody In the first draft and then the secondary aft- She was from Wisconsin with a totally different background. So already you know you could see the development of some desire to to to create some potential for tension and disagreements and different backgrounds. And so on. So you know. There's that element that he's kind of playing around with what this movie is even about. There's a part where it was going to be a murder mystery you know. Oh and that actually was taken out and then using Manhattan murder mystery years and years later he did. This movie seems to have evolved in a way where he founded as he was making it and as he was editing it and maybe at that end where he starts to see all these puzzle pieces like Oh. I made a movie about myself. He didn't even realize how introspective he was until he saw the pieces. The original cut is like four hours and this movie comes in very brisk ninety minutes but but it seems from everything I've read as if it was cold all in the Senate like no that needs to go here and they reshot the ending and and I think they reshot the opening to kind of put these book ends on it like he found the movie or found it in a.

"Hello everybody and welcome to unspoiled. I'm John Paul. Scheer will be here in just a second but you need to him. You have me to say right now that this is was the show where every week we go through one of the films on the top one hundred list from two thousand seven and talk about what that film is like put it in the context of history put it in context of the modern era. Put It in context of what this phone contributes to this. Great Messy thing. We call cinema however you define cinema. We're not getting into the fight of what is cinema today last week. Paul and I were just dazzled to talk about the film the best years of our lives from nineteen forty six. It is a film about three soldiers offers or three different people from different branches of the military who returned home to their small town and just try to get their footing and the women that they love the families that they love. Try to get their footing to kids. That's it's a whole big lovely lovely beautiful film. That is kind of hard to find. We are sad about that and it was just blew poloway. He'd never there's definitely then he was like what are you. I only know that there is a man who has hooks for hands at. He walked away a best years of our life. Best Ya I don't know what the best is. I'm trying right. I think of a fan group for the best years anyway. We should come up with a name for the fans of the best years of our lives because it turns out there are just bazillions of them. Everybody who is in this movie loves this movie. I loved this week on just being online. Just having people say I'm so happy we're talking about this movie. Feels like a lot of people have stumbled across it on. TC M maybe seen it when they were kids. Maybe a father showed it to them grandfather. It's always special heart in their life and now they can talk about other people. And that is one of the most beautiful things about doing the show David Markham Fda Marco for you rights one of the best things about best years is that the title came from a throwaway line. Virginia Mayo's Rant as she leaves Dana Andrews and what were their best cheers. Was it before for homer during for Fred who was a hero or after you know or is it simply any period where the people are at peace. I think that's actually really interesting question because we talk a lot in the modern era about the best years of American history and it does feel like when you look at them. They weren't as best as everybody said until I like. This film itself comes from a throwaway line. That's also a bit of a sideline so I like that. Thank you David on that note Trevor Shaun. MD says that they are giving sight to us here unspoiled support for forgetting that DVD's a thing and the best years of our lives has been released in the format several times and can be bought for as little as two dollars. Yes yes yes. Yes yes okay Sean. You're very right. I'm just saying thing. It's the only one that you can't just stream and that does seem to be a thing. I'm sorry I'm terrified of hoarding and I don't like to own things. So that's on me over on facebook. Adam Thelma Hillman says I think this film absolutely belongs on the list. It's beautifully shot and acted. It tackles a number of topical themes with intelligence and honesty. I mean is there another high-calibre caliber film this air. That so openly deal with the problems faced by returning Gi's and it's subtly progressive about issues like alcoholism marriage almost no Hollywood films. Were until well after the the blacklist era absolutely agreeing. And I'm glad glad Dosso touching on that on the blacklist Aaron. How films like this of Wrath and other people talking about this episode made in parallel to is wild either film? This much of a big heart got so investigated. Sort of like if you found out that there was a giant F. B. I.. File on Fred Rogers. which perhaps they're honestly was? There was one quibble that we had with the movie which is just that the sun that apparently Frederick Mark says there in the film at the very beginning just absolutely vanishes is and never seen again. Dr West Anthony on twitter writes well Fredric March Sunday. The best of our lives goes where he belongs on the cutting room floor. Gad's oops he was the only lousy. How's the actor in that picture? There were chairs more charismatic than him. Which helped ouch ouch? Ouch ouch ouch. Ouch but maybe fair. If if you're listening and you consider those fighting words well that's fine. That is a decent segue into our intro to this week's film n Hall as you know in any hall. There's a scene where woody woody. Allen is in line for the movie theater he gets mad at a at what a man is egg behind him about Meteo cinema any polls in the great intellectual Marshall McLuhan to tell him that he's wrong wrong so we asked you last week. If you bring anyone into an argument who would you bring to help you win. So if I could bring anyone new argument James Madison. There's somebody political arguments about gun control or peacemaker anything where people like. Oh the founders. Intended this that it'd be great just to be able to say Houston gene partisan. Just tell us what you intended. And then we'll probably ignore it anyway the next time someone says that something a little bit out of the ordinary surreal. I'd like to call in the father of surrealism himself Andre Town so that he could go. This is not so. It's not the least bit area. It could never be. I would love to bring Jesus into a conversation literally anyway so he could look at them to like you know. That's not really what I had by. Yeah I'M GONNA go with Emily Dickenson. I'm visiting the Hailee. Steinfeld show right now. My favorite film released this year. Was Molly Shannon. Twelve right away but I lost else just to pull her out in conversations with straight washers who think that gay people exist prior to the nineteen eighties and just have be like that curl and I were not just friends. The Fire Brandon me. The woman was very sharp lobster claws loves all of those answers. Thank you very much and also also I just want to. Second that Muller Shannon's wild nights with emily is fantastic. I review that movie out of south by and it was so so so so fun definitely a movie that went under the radar and should be checked act out. We'll put a pin in that because now it's time for our feature presentation before we get into today's episode. We want to offer you a a trigger warning because this is going to be talking about a woody Allen Film and we know that that carries a lot of baggage and we wrestled with how to talk about this movie and saying we. We talked about Chinatown. We wanted to make sure that a we are acknowledging. What we know about Woody Woody Allen and giving you a chance to check out if you don't want to hear a conversation about him where we will be complimenting him and speaking highly of from this is going to be our chance to kind of talk about the the major issues That are held against them. And then we're going to go into our actual episode. Yeah I mean the issues with woody allen kind of boil down to two things one of which is very established. Nobody disagrees on that. He cheated on his wife Mia Farrow with their adopted daughter scene. Gene unmarried her and they're still married to her today and the second is that he is accused of molesting another daughter that he had another doctor had with me a pharaoh when she was seven years old and he has denied the allegations. The Connecticut State Attorney did investigate the allegations but did not press charges In one reason that we've been told they didn't press charges is just that me didn't want her daughter to have to go through the experience of being cross examined on the stand when she was really young. This has split the family and this is split L.. A. Lot of woody Allen's acquaintances friends supporters end enemies and those are the established facs debatable fact. Yes and it's something that has has been going on for quite a long time and it seems like now more recently a tight is really turned in the last couple of years. You know you see actors making some bold statements like I would never work with Woody Allen again other actors donating money that they got from working on Woody Allen Projects to Organizations to help abused used molested children. And even it's turned into Woody Allen. Losing his deal at Amazon which is currently in a lawsuit with so this has been something. That's been going on for a long time and is still very much a a thing that that is in our culture that is Kind of being part. I as or as much as last week people are coming out saying I would or would not work with him. So this film that we're talking about was before the the events that we just described and we're just gonNa Kinda know this and if this bothers you and I would say turn it off now and we'll see you next week and it'll be La di DA.
