The New Movie 'Elvis' Is an Oscars Shoo-In
"Kind of tell you guys, I saw the Elvis movie. Damn, was that a good movie? You know, the director baz luhrmann has a very stylized way of making movies. If you saw the famous one he did, I mean, you know, Romeo and Juliet, moulin rouge, Gatsby, he has a certain way of making movies, even though Australia, which wasn't my favorite kind of movie. It definitely has a certain look to it that you can't mistake. It's like, you know, when you hear a certain guitar player, you can tell if it's Aerosmith, you can tell if it's The Rolling Stones, YouTube, you can hear slash them all away, you can hear, you know, Keith Richards in my way. Same thing with bosler and you always know when you're watching one of his movies. But I'll tell you, Elvis, the movie just built and built and built. It kept getting quicker and quicker and quicker until not no spoilers here. Elvis develops a drug, a pill habit, and, you know, he starts to lose, lose it, and just an amazing, amazing portrayal by Austin butler, this guy was born to play Elvis role, music was great. They even like patched in like some rap ish music into Elvis songs or I can't explain it. They took the old, the music of down south, you know, the black music, the gospel songs and infused it with some contemporary singers from today, and it really sounded amazing. Austin butler's gorgeous. I don't think Elvis had eyes that blue, but the weird thing is the way Tom Hanks plays colonel Parker, you might find that odd 'cause he has this accent he used it. I always thought colonel Parker was like a southern gentleman kind of guy. You know, like, I just assumed he was that guy. Even though he did live down there, he had this Dutch accent apparently. And it was a Dutch accent that I've learned he used that also had the hottest speech impediment, so Tom Hanks really went out of his way with prosthetics you can't believe. You can't believe it's Tom Hanks. The accent, the prosthetics, the acting, there's no question he's going to be up for best actor. I've even put Austin butler up as well from the same movie. It's that good.

"Will both have to make sacrifices. Hank snow, the popular country singer who helped discover Presley, is one of several formative figures who pop up early on. We see Elvis as a young boy in tupelo Mississippi, where he spends time in black churches, and experiences a spiritual and musical epiphany. To its credit, the movie acknowledges the black musicians, like B.B. King, Little Richard, and big mama Thornton, who influenced Presley. But luhrmann's filmmaking is finally too broad in its strokes. To really tackle Elvis as much contested legacy, as a white musician, who helped sell black music to white audiences. Where the movie does succeed, and it's no small thing. Isn't conveying what an exhilarating performer Presley was. When a still unknown Elvis performs, baby let's play house on stage. The movie lingers on the young women in the audience, screaming and swooning and ecstasy. Parker and others later try to keep Elvis gyrating pelvis and line. By enforcing a no wiggle rule at concerts. To no avail. Luhrmann piles on the visual flourishes, sometimes rendering the performance footage and sizzling black and white, and sometimes splitting the screen into as many as 8 separate images. It's overkill, no question. But it also has an undeniable verve. As usual, though, luhrmann's flair for spectacle tends to overwhelm his basic story sense. Much of the movie rushes past in a shapeless blur. And while butler's performance has its poignant moments, there's two little sense of the human being, beneath the slick hair and zany suits. The workman like script lurches between high points and low points, with little connective tissue. Elvis is mostly undistinguished movie career, is quickly glossed over. Olivia de Jong makes a striking Priscilla Presley, but nothing about their unhappy marriage feels distinct from all the unhappy marriages that we've seen in countless other celebrity biopics. Through it all, colonel Parker keeps plotting behind the scenes. Manipulating Elvis image at will, and ultimately scoring him a lucrative birth at Las Vegas new international hotel in 1969. Elvis will remain a fixture of the hotel for the next 7 years. Performing show after sold out show. Until just a year before his death. During that time, he gradually wastes away. Ravaged by addiction, haunted by his failures as a husband and father, and exploited at every turn by a manager he can't shake off. No matter how hard he tries. There's a lot here for Elvis experts to debate and debunk. But however much historical truth there is in luhrmann's film, there's no mistaking his anger at Parker. For using Elvis massive fame to pay off his many gambling debts and fund his extravagant lifestyle. Luhrmann's portrait of Parker is damning. But it also distracts from the story he's trying to tell. The tragedy of Elvis is that he never breaks free of colonel Parker. The tragedy of Elvis the movie is that it never does. Either. Justin Chang is the film critic for the LA times.

"Very awkwardly arranged series of cultural explanations of our last 50 years of our history, and it just seems like flashing the buzzwords as opposed to actually connecting any of the, yeah. Anyway, it does not make a lot of sense, and I imagine that if you're under the age of 30 and coming to this for the first time, you're like, you guys did what? This happened, how? Really? I'd like to know. I mean, I'm very curious to see how this film performs because it's obviously designed, I think, for older audiences who have a bigger relationship with Elvis older audiences, little hit and miss at the box office recently, baz luhrmann is a very successful filmmaker, you know? Actually, every single one of his films has made more money than the last that was released. And this is going to be a big test of that success because it's not going to get great reviews, and it's two hours and 40 minutes. Definitely does not need to be that. Is it the rare case where it should have been a TV show? Would that have been ridiculous? Well, did you want to sit through ten hours? No, I don't. Tom Hanks voice? I feel really sad about it. I love Tom Hanks. I just, this doesn't work. I think it reminded me a little bit of cloud Atlas, where he's like, I want to have some fun. I'm going to try something new. And it might not work, but it's a big bold swing. He did this in the terminal. Anytime he goes into the accent zone, it's always a little bit dicey. That's not really where he excels. He excels kind of in the opposite lane, which is the extremely familiar version of him. Sure. But I agree with you that I'm not totally sure why he wanted to spend his life. And this is, of course, the film where he contracted COVID. So while he was making this movie, so it'll be an fascinating bullet point on his career CV. Very, very strange movie. I definitely will never watch it again. But maybe I'll watch a couple of clips on YouTube. Did you have a bad time, though? I needed it to be over. Sure. I needed it to be over. I did actually. We were at the same screening. We didn't know this, and I did watch you just leaving with alacrity, even for you. It was like, well, I guess I'll see Sean later because I'm not going to catch up with him today. I didn't know you were there and if I had known I wouldn't have done that too, but like I said, I felt it's length, even though I agree with you that it feels like it's moving so fast. I'm not sure quite sure I've ever felt that in a movie where it was absolutely endless and yet was so frenetic that I was exhausted. So anyway, that's Elvis. You mentioned walk hard. Let's bring in our pal Adam name and let's talk.

"Made. I could feel the effort watching the movie. It's two hours and 40 minutes. It feels every minute of that runtime. And there is an extraordinary amount of things accomplished in the movie, but I really didn't love the movie at all. And I think it's an interesting Rorschach test for your taste because you can't say the baz luhrmann isn't talented, but it's so hard for me to get out of his own way. What did you think of this movie? This movie is a lot in every sense of that cultural phrase now. I mean, there is so much packed into it. You noted that it's two hours and 40 minutes long feels like it's forever. It also moves so quickly. And the pace is frenetic, doesn't even seem to do it justice. You can miss entire plot points. Of his life. Quite literally, I missed the graceland was purchased as graceland, you know? Like two hours in the movie, I was like, oh, that fancy house that they're all living in. That's graceland, you know? Which is his own cultural icon moment. So there's so much happening, baz luhrmann style is maximalist Jim's everything in and he almost seems to be commenting on his own style in this in terms of like the montages and the different like the references and the musical genres. It's not just Elvis music being played in this. And it's zipping through decades and time. I mean, it's just like trying to fit literally everything, not just about Elvis, but I guess what Elvis has meant pop culturally. And I guess in terms of America from the last 60, 70 years into one movie. So in one way, it's not surprising that there is reportedly a four hour cut. On the other hand, just like yikes, it's a mess. It's a mess in the literal, not well organized and hard to hard to follow or it's maybe not hard to follow because you're just on the ride, but it just does kind of feel like a zipline through Elvis's life. And history. And then it is also just a mess in terms of the storytelling decisions if you can even call them decisions. Because some of it is just like, well, I'm not going to make a choice. I'm going to do this and this and this and this. I think that there are some just absolute failures, including the Tom Hanks character, and which is really how the story is ultimately organized to the extent that it is organized, which is around the character of colonel Parker. Who's played by Tom Hanks, and the frame and the perspective of the story is from the perspective of this manager, svengali figure. And that turns Elvis into almost a supporting character and also makes you spend a lot of time with Tom Hanks. Truly baffling accents and choices. And I don't know that I don't know why Tom Hanks wanted to do. This role and this movie, but none of it's really working. And that, and that character in that narration and that primary storytelling choice always seems to interject itself. Just when you forgotten that they did it and just when you were like on the wave of Elvis and you're like, you know what? This is kind of a mess, but baz luhrmann is like a huge stylistic visionary, really understands like pop music and music as performance..

"King, Kelvin Harrison junior, shops there. We see him succumbing to the dangerous manipulations of colonel Parker, and later kicking against them, most notably, as he mounts his 1968 comeback special. He was supposed to put on a garish Christmas sweater and sing Santa Claus is coming to town. Not become the stuff of legend in a black leather suit that you just know would be hot to the touch, if only you could get close enough to it. But as we know, Elvis loses that fight. Colonel Parker sends a quack known as doctor Nick to pump him full of drugs to keep him on his feet even as he's going out of his mind. The tragedy escalates. Does luhrmann show us the real Elvis or is he just re embroidering the Elvis who already lives in our imagination? The answer seems to be that luhrmann sees equal value in fact and myth. Though Elvis more or less follows the facts as we know them, there are moments of invention that are piercing. When Elvis long suffering wife Priscilla, played by Olivia dejonge, finally leaves him, he chases after her, rushing down the staircase at graceland in pants and a purple robe, a drugged out mess. She can't take it anymore, she's got to leave, and she's taking little Lisa Marie with her. Elvis stands there in bare feet, begging her not to go. And when he realizes he can't stop her, he says more in defeat than in hopefulness, when you're 40 and I'm 50, we'll be back together, you'll see. Even if Elvis never really uttered that line, its map of romantic longing had long been written in his voice. In Elvis, when butler sings, its Elvis voice that streams out in lustrous ribbons of recklessness of ardor of hope for the future. That voice is a repository of every joy and misery that life could possibly hold. When the trailer for Elvis was released a few months back, the responses on social media and among people I know ranged from that looks unhinged. I'm dying to see it to I can't even look at that thing to what accent exactly is Tom Hanks trying to achieve? The movie incidentally explains the unidentifiable diction of this man without a country and probably without a soul. In the movie's last moments, luhrmann recreates one of the saddest Elvis remnants, a live performance of unchained melody from June of 1977, just two months before his death. Butler, his face puffed out with prosthetics, sits at a grand piano littered with Coca-Cola cups and a discarded Terry cloth towel or two. The song, a swallows, swoop of longing, begins pouring out of Elvis's wrecked body. But as we watch, luhrmann pulls a mystical switch and footage of the real Elvis, replaces the magnificent butler as Elvis doppelganger we've been watching. For a few confusing moments, the real Elvis is no longer a ghost. He has returned to us an actor playing himself and we see that as good as that butler kid was. There's no comparison to the real thing. But the feeling of relief is fleeting, Elvis now gone for more than 40 years a ghost, no matter how passionately luhrmann and butler have tried to reconstitute his ectoplasm. The only consolation is that when a person is no longer a person, he is at last free to become a dream. In the final moments of Elvis, luhrmann returns his beloved subject to that world, like a fisherman, freeing his catch..

"Baz luhrmann's Elvis is an exhilarating maddening spectacle, but one made with love by Stephanie zakaric. Baz luhrmann's movies, even the great ones, like his 1996 Shakespeare via Tiger beat romance, Romeo and Juliet, or The Great Gatsby from 2013, a fringed shimmy of decadence and loneliness are loathed by many for what they see as the directors garishness. His adoration of spectacle, his penchant for headache inducing mince meat and glitter editing. But in 2022, in a culture where long form series storytelling reigns supreme, luhrmann's devotion to two and a half hour bursts of excess is pleasingly old fashioned, like a confetti blast from a cannon at a county fair. It's true that his movies don't always work or rarely work all the way through. And that's certainly the case with Elvis. His sequined jumpsuit of a biopic playing out of competition at the 75th Cannes Film Festival. At times, it's barely a movie. The first hour or so is exceptionally fragmented and frenetic as if lerman were time traveling through a holographic rendering of Elvis Presley's life, dipping and darting through the significant events with little time to touch down. But through all the arty over indulgences, one truth shines through. Luhrmann loves Elvis so much, it hurts, and in a world where there's always supposedly a constant stream of new things to love, or at least to binge watch, love of Elvis, our American pauper king with a cloth of gold voice, feels like a truly pure thing. Luhrmann and his co writers, Sam bromell and Craig Pearce used the story of Elvis supremely crooked manager, colonel Tom Parker. Tom Hanks lurking beneath prosthetic jowls to frame the larger, more glorious and more tragic story of Elvis. Though he was born in tupelo, Mississippi, his identical twin, Jesse garon, died at birth. Elvis grew up poor in Memphis, adoring and being adored by his mother Gladys, Helen Thompson. Luhrmann shows us Elvis as a preadolescent splitting his time between a juke joint and a revival tent down the road. Too young to get into the former, he could only peer through a crack in the wall and tranced by the black blues guys performing inside. These are the twin poles of young Elvis life. The foundation for all that came after and luhrmann connects them in one extremely stylized shot. In Elvis world gospel and blues are literally connected by wonder road..

I need to know where they are today. Are they in prison. are they dead. If it doesn't conclusively just ends with an arrest and maybe a trial. I need to know. Why are they rotting in jail or what has happened. Are they sorry how they omitted like there's a mini of moments where a half to finish it out. Of course yes. Without watching and an inability to turn away there is that level of fear. Baz what intrigues people. Yes fear of the unknown or the possibility of having something violet happened in your life. And i actually just had a really horrible dream and told you about it a little earlier and i'm not gonna go into it. I maybe because we are researching this is in my brain but yes does that just made me wake up and feel so nauseous and shaken by it like. It's the worst thing that i can think of possibly happening but not because of anything other than my dog was involved. I will say that is so by dog is very precious to me. It was horrifying some of the things that just came into my head but it is that fear. Some research data is out of fear that women listen and want to know about this situation again which could relate to how to care for themselves but it's also a way of getting sick at hand relief in not being a victim so being able to say that i've never experienced that makes you feel okay in. I think that's kind of that level of so. We just recently had a really horrific death in atlanta. That happened in one of our more popular parks. And i don't know where the case gone but it definitely brought out all of the. Oh my god. There's a serial killer texts and notes and message boards like it's it's been happening and the first thing i thought was. I believe the woman was white. I'm not a white woman. I'm a little fear of relief. Which i shouldn't be. There should not be but knowing the history of what serial killers chur patterns aryan races. A big factor typically typically in all of this and. that's that part but still want to know but there is a second hendra relief which is awful because someone died in this case to be told and we need to get justice for this woman but there is that fear like a moment of like last. That didn't happen to me. Yeah no yeah. We talked about a little also inter fear up so why women love horror movies which is something that is just fascinated me and i've thought about this idea of stress which is a type of stress that is good but i think for a lot of women because we do live with these fears. We live with when i go outside. You know. I'm thinking about the people on the street you didn't wear. Where am i keys. And what are my exits and all those things. So i think there is something about watching something and being able to relate but also be separate and kind of release some of that stress that's just built up and you and you don't realize how much is up and you right. I do think that's part of it of like your worry. Feeling these nerves around this and this fear around this every day and to watch something like a way to release all of that built up right fear. And don't it'll still build up again but it's like kind of a just a method of not ignoring but also being able to be distant from it and experience it and release some of it right. I think another reason sympathy for the devil and this would be more related to our past episode on women who love serial killers. people are. Women are intrigued by the perpetrators background. And how they were created the origin story. I think that's also part of human nature is. How could someone do this like asking that question. And there are some that believe because women are thought to have more empathy than men that women connect on a different level especially for the victim which makes the stories more relevant and personal four women ray in a lot of the way they want to see that justice has happened so instead of having a like i think cereal was a little different because it questioned things But those so many other true crime. Like things with ted bundy and things with the night stalker there was endings in there. There was conclusive. This happened so to have bat is also a different level. Like oh my god thank goodness. We're so glad these victims you know had justice or hopefully they do get justice right. that's also part of that And would that again. The puzzles or the detective work behind the series. Some experts say it involves a level of working out the mystery stating vote. Women like to untangle things they think a lot. I'm not saying women don't but they like to work things out often. Think about things quite deeply in. Obviously there's a big aspect of that intrude crime especially in unsolved cold-case type documentaries or podcasts. There's a lot to think about in the talk about right. And i know that's what a lot of the different podcast hosts are able to do like especially when there's more than one hosted they of work it out together and talk it through with each other. There's a lot of that trying to unravel misery end for me. Yeah there's a lot of incomplete and unsolved cases and i like going that rabbit holes. Well i will start researching individuals. Of course i don't go down like journalist investigative journalists who create who are able to unsolved mysteries themselves. And do the. I'm gonna drive here to here. I'm not that hard. But i will start looking. It'd be like. I wonder what this person was doing. I wonder what that person is up to. Now like there's a lot of questions that i'm like. I wonder if i can and i'm also the same person in horror movies. Like the whole whodunit. Or who's the killer type of thing. That god no so and so or this is the twist of course this twist. I'm that person feeling like i need to know. Of course there are so many other reasons noted but like we said earlier. There are a lot of speculation about the wi with a lot of answers and some assumptions behind it. But there's tons and for yourself it may be a completely different reason and even to the point that they said things like escapism as one of the things in. Yes kind like horror movies right. Why would you torture yourself with this for you're able to remove yourself a little bit from the horrors of your own horrors by other people's wars which is said filthier to say out loud. Yeah yeah but yeah. There's so many things we talked about that. I feel like our parts of human nature. They might be parts. We don't like thinking about too deeply right. It is and i have been as samantha. Does everyone knows. I've been on a fan fiction cakewalk. I there was a mystery mystery of all somebody who is guilty. And i was telling everybody i'm like it's this person and this is happened and then we got a text when she found out i was right. But it's kind of that same thing of like okay. I wanna learn to pick up on these clues of like okay. This person is not trustworthy and avoid them for myself. I think there's a lot of things going on in our like trying to figure out who did.

You know you you probably see through like people wanting to buy them as a prop unless you went to school for this shit like this is your your life like you actually give a shit about this and you're actually helping that to me The flex by that's why just have unbridled joy. Just thinking of young young would learn like. Oh yeah i'll give you one of those things where you would be wondering where his next album is. And it's taking years and then like there's some like weird little story that comes out where it's like young thugs been in the two year falconry training. And it's like a whole thing that derails his album finally drops and it'll be good and very bird inspired. Yeah so i used to tour with riffraff. And there was a period of time where he brought a snake on his wrist on stage and immediately a lot of. That's just like i like where you're at. It feels like more of a a video up music video thing. Less of a alive stunt So bad idea but he would just take it on stage and like obviously see we all know enough about riffraff but like a bad idea and thing would start biting him and then he was over it at a certain point in time and i was like dude. Throwing the snake animal dude. You shouldn't be first off. He doesn't give a fuck about your music. I'll tell you that. And secondly let the do live like he's not a prop so for sure. I try to keep like. I stay really vague about it because i think especially in a city like l. a. like it's such a weird novelty. It's an unexpected thing to see someone with the hawk. And i think kind of a lot of people their initial responses like this is red. I i would. I wanna do this. The tool you know. I wanna take like three pictures for instagram. And then realize what i've gotten myself into so yeah definitely not something you want to just like dabble in. If you're not really committed you know absolutely not for those listening at home. Do not get into this. If you're not taking it seriously but also like i mean hit me up and make me an offer keno ticket is like i need to be. Young thugs like balcony. Her saying i need to fly you out on the ice to train. His birds house his birds. I mean i deliver with young way around it. Another crazy one. Sorry police just really really quick. I was working for this multimillionaire. Actually i think he was a billionaire in belair and i was working on his private estate chasing crows garden and he had like twenty five acres in bel air. It was gorgeous my god. He had five. how bill. yeah. I i'm not gonna share the name but Because i fear for my own life. I name but no but so so. There were like three different houses on five different houses on the property. One of them was being rented to the rapper. Birdman and i became very shami with his security guard. Always i'm also young dude you roll. You'll i don't wanna like step to uber man. But like i kind of feel like i have a little bit more claim to the name. So here's the crazy thing. Is that so. I became really friendly with his security guards and then at one point he was out there and i met him and they were all like yo dude birdman come over and meet this bird and offered to have him fly. Jasper just like you guys did. And he was like. Oh hell no like. I don't want anything. I want to be near that bird and i was like dude. You can't be birdman anymore you know. I'm sorry but i am birdman. I was appointed other animal out of the kingdom to name yourself and you chose the one. Maybe that's why he went with that. I don't know maybe. Because he's like overcoming my deepest. Like a more. You contender like batman. Yeah he has two faces fears. Yeah he's a bird's he wasn't ready though at that moment. That's fucking hilarious. So it's i mean so. The billionaire is not birdman. No no the neighbor billionaire was renting a house to birdman while he was like recording an album or something. God it's it was wild. It was an amazing gig. I mean literally went three days a week for probably nine months and just flew my my birds in this beautiful garden like hillside estate. It was incredible. That's why it's like one of the reasons. I was just fascinated by us like seeing you living your day to day in. Your work is just so different than anything anybody who's doing. It sounds so peaceful too like you're just flying bird around its up and downs. I would say it's like a what a bad day. i mean. actually. I could imagine to match a lot. It's not funny games like it can be really stressful like okay. Flying on a thirty acre remote property and belair chances are it's going to be a good day flying like a hawk that you don't entirely trust yet on fourth avenue in downtown. La is stressful. You know. I mean like they fly across incoming traffic and that could be it. You know so you have to be really on. it's not it's not all you know. Running around frolicking with falcons in the field So wow That's it i've i've never lost a bird to..

"All of those variables are eliminated. It's just personality. He's just kind of a jerk. And i just I went to of your been animal tracks inc. It's like an animal rescue place. I took Friend of the show felix biedermann for his birthday. We went and met all these animals and we met like wolves monkeys like crazy stuff and that was like one thing they amongst many other incredible things like one of the big takeaways was like how they are saying. The personalities are completely unpredictable especially with like wolves like one is super super nice and the other is like a you know none of mar mean to the people that come in. But they're not as friendly and just like really like luck of the draw. I mean that's the that's the joy of it for me. Really like you know is getting to have this kind of like intimate personal relationship with these birds you know. All of whom are different and some have strengths and weaknesses. And it's i mean it's really just like Yeah and then. I need to learn how to kind of harness those strengths and and maybe work with those weaknesses and kind of you know and like i said. Sometimes i get a bird. That's just not a good fit for me. But for the most part i would say that. Like if you're a good falconer can probably Make any bird work. And if you put in the time you know like you. Ken sculpt that behavior and Yeah it's just like it's immensely The term rewarding you know to work with these different animals and get to know their personalities and see all the little like idiosyncrasies and behind the scenes stuff that you would just never expect like watching a hawk take a bath or like you know stretch its wings like they wake up and they stretch every morning. you know. it's like yeah guys you walk out in the living room in the morning and you see jasper in full show chevanton. Sorry jack say we should probably do an ad break real quick and then we'll come back with some more questions..
"baz" Discussed on Yeah, But Still
"Am a gun owner like i have more protections i guess than that which is pretty wild so that's never happened to me and if there's any federal agents out there please don't do that but no you know because i also have guns. Let's go try to fuck around. With these falcons yeah. Don't come to your house. Honestly unless you're the feds. well also. Don't come to your house for the feds to but but you in tiptop shape. It looks good from the outside. Yeah so how'd you get started with us in the first place i cam. I don't mean to jump over your question. That's kinda going backwards. But what made you decide to do this. Like a lot of people have probably had like. I mean especially guys i have like a dumb thought from like Dude that'd be so cool. I saw the royal tenenbaums. And i want to learn to do that. That's just like a fleeting thought. Nobody commits to. How'd you start. Do i just want to have never thought about owning a bird every no not owning at but just be like to be able to learn to do that. Like i dunno. I grew up with parakeet and stuff. Not even remotely the same. But i understand. Birds will so. I saw the royal tenenbaums and then i thought no so i. I worked as a bird. Biologists for twelve years so it's not like a huge jump for me But truly i did. I was actually working off field job studying wild birds down in the sierras in california. I was living in oregon at the time. So i say down And i heard a piece on npr. This was probably. I don't know nine or ten years ago. At this point i heard a piece on. Npr was an interview with the falconer. That was making a living as a falconer. Doing nuisance bird control like i mentioned earlier. I had no idea that that was even a line of work. I mean i knew what falconry was. I thought it was like this. Impossibly expensive time consuming archaic like barely practiced anymore. Land in ray lender exactly. Yeah totally and that is like historically. That's all fox hunting. And then you also do falconry great. But yeah so. I heard the story on. Mpr about a falconer. That was making a living as a falconer and that kind of piqued my interest and then kind of that sat marinated a little bit and then a few years later i met a falconer in oregon who also had like a biology background in conservation background. So he was you know. I felt like he was approaching falconry from a very similar place that i wanted to And so we started working together. And i did my apprenticeship with him and it's really the kind of thing it's like you have to like. I mentioned you have to do a two year apprenticeship so you can't just kind of try it out and dip your toe you're in or you're out. It's a huge lifestyle commitment. And so i just kind of made the decision somewhat on a whim i was like i'm gonna i'm going to do this. I'm gonna give it a shot and see how it goes. And then i fell in love with it and started making a living working as a falconer. And yeah i mean i love it so i feel like ivan jumping over your question. I mean this is this is all of course. I feel like i'm interested in what this community is. Because you seem cool as hell. I can't imagine yeah. You're like the coolest like cool talking or you know just for the audience. You're very good looking like you have soi snacked your knocked out these pictures of you didn't just featured in like one of the big magazines right like this on your on. Your was a photograph or something. Yeah yeah so. There was an article in flaunt magazine. Lot magazine Yeah there have been like a couple couple of the hollywood sign. Yeah that was performed magazine. It was kind of a. I guess a fashion editorial. Yeah which was a little weird. There was a new york times article about my work. That was kind of like that was pretty big for me. about here so that was cool but Well thank you i. You know that's like that's a unique thing though. I think it's like probably from in your your young too. I think a lot of weight question was is that this your cool as hell. There's gotta be some fucking weirdos in this game. Oh for sure. Yeah i would say maybe more. I don't know all of them to right. It's a small community. There's a lot of falconers in california actually and it's a pretty tight knit community Most people know each other at least by name But you know you get kind of like the full gamut of personalities Falconry is definitely a very obscure thing so it draws in probably a a a certain type of person. And i don't really like to generalize too much about what that is. There's some other amazing falconers out there. There's also some really shitty falconers out there. But i would just say if i had to. Kind of like generalize. I do think as with like all animal people. They tend to be a lot of people drawn to it. That are maybe better with animals than they are with humans. Like a lot of i just think. In general people that are devote their life to working with animals. Oftentimes find some sort of like comfort in that may because they're not great inter personally. That's not i mean. I know plenty of smart outgoing. Affable like falconers. Also but. Yeah i mean you know. It's i don't know. I i was never expecting to gravitate towards it. I just give you an opportunity to flame the whole field here inflame the community. He didn't take. I mean i was listening to your podcast so But yeah i mean. I will say this like you'd be surprised. I i do feel like you know. I do so. I offer these falconry lessons and demonstrations and that's kind of a growing part of my work. I think probably because i'm i i have decent interpersonal skills so i'm decent with people and i'm comfortable talking in front of people so that's allowed me to Like excel at that. Maybe in a way that might not be the case for other falconers. I mean i don't know there's so i wanna talk a little bit about the stuff. You do at the buildings. Have you ever seen somebody do this camp because like early on moving to la was by the building that kind of complex. There's like a bunch of the big buildings over what's it called in and out of that building century city. Yeah so arch. Yeah i see a guy with a big leather glove just standing in the field and like meanwhile everybody is in like suits or whatever you know the junior assistant outfit like yelling on the phone blah blah having their latinos. But there's one guy standing in like gore gear holding a.

"That's trying to get some footage for On a film set. They'll call me in to chase smaller. Birds away with my hawks. So that's what i do for a living so i travel all over town. You know with these hawks in the back of my previous going from jobs i- jobsite and the bees. I just i arrived at a job site. It's the us bank building downtown. And i get there and the manager of the building was like hey you know be careful. You might not wanna your hawks today. There's a swarm of bees in this tree. And i used to keep so i was like well. Can i have the bees. Because that's a free pretty obvious logic natural questions because he was trying to get rid of them and he didn't know what to do and area was cautioned taped off so i ran home to be fair. Didn't have a beekeeping outfit in my car. I'm not quite that from my first. It was like it. Seemed like you had it on deck. Yeah i mean it's okay. It wasn't the garage. That i did have one but i did have to go home and get it so so then i went home. And i got my beekeeping outfit. And i and i came in collected the swarm of bees and which maybe sounds like a crazy thing is actually a pretty regular occurrence. Big come up. I mean you know two or three hundred dollar come up yeah beezer expensive you know wow and and it's like this is a swarm of bees. That's out looking for a new home so it's a win win like i got. I got ten thousand freebie freebies and they got a perfect environment that is built in with housing bees in mind. I put them in a beehive and there. They're psyched and now they're in my backyard making honey so i think we should shortly be questions later but we should maybe table that she's made a stick to your questions for this one hundred percent so we just met a hawk you you pulled up. Was the hawks name. Jasper just to kind of give a description. Jasper is over there sitting in a box. That's almost exactly. The size of a gaming pc is how described literally machine an antibac- two thousand eight machine. Yeah so he's sitting there in the white box actually has a gain even has a container. Yes got a complete ban on it so you pulled him out. It was pretty amazing. Extremely well trained reactions. Cam just flew the bird. He was flying around my neighborhood for him. Top of the house. Adam walked in. I was like quiet. Because i was waiting for this to start recording because i just have a million questions and i feel like he probably gets a million of them all day long but i feel like i've just general joy when i saw the bird that i couldn't contain myself so we're going to have to remember all the questions that we want to ask him 'cause he's already in ten minutes is said some crazy shit but your life is movie dog..

We have joining us at a type of gas than probably ever had on. The podcasts are both Definitely our first animal guests Animal correspondent adam baz. Welcome to the podcast. Thanks owner of a hawk that we just met we just a hawk flying around backyard. Yeah when adam walked in he just wouldn't stop saying i'm a hawk girl. I do hawk shit. So i just needed to say that before we get started on your blown. My opening line like that's my fire. There's probably a million different puns. That you just are so tired of hearing with hawk and falcon related shit right at this point to filter. Filter them out. Actually what is what we should give some context to you. But i do have a question to add onto that is. What's the most over said thing like because you do this stuff in public. You're out with the hawk like what's the dumb dad thing that people come up and say is there like one that everybody fucking says. I mean i can't think of a pun off the top of my head because i have systematically tried to tune them out. Yeah prevent myself from saying them out of like you know some semblance of having any kind of dignity. But i would say like the most irritating thing for like me as a falconer is know it alls that come up and are like oh yeah like what kind of eagle is that you know. They wanna talk. Yeah johnson birdshot but like they have no idea you know. Yeah but yeah. That's got to be a dad move. They're trying to get in with the hawk. So i'll back it up. We have with us here. A man that i. I was hiking not long ago with chelsea and i see this previous pull in and it's like on the side of what i presumed to be. The driver a picture of the driver with a hawk as hawk on hand and he like pulls up in the park and i'm like talking to chelsea. I'm like dude. I think has birds in this car. I wanna i wanna stay and see this. And she's like. I like snap a picture. And she's she's like come on like you know. Can we go go get lunch or whatever we're going to do so i kind of resigned and i didn't hang around but I posted the picture on instagram of the car. I said like. I think he has birds in the car. And you replied to me like actually in multiple birds will i have global high. I have so many friends. Send it to me you know and be lower. The purchasing media has no actually had three hawks in the car. Three three hawks in a pre only got one in this thing. Shut up. So i yeah. I mean we've been talking a little bit. I wouldn't be on the podcast. If i only had one hawks prius i though is like podcast material. Yeah this guy's a hoarding hawks. In the back of his two thousand six busted preez. How many hawks could fit in. I didn't know you could put a hawk and a prius in the first place. I got one it turns out. It's a great falconry mobile. You know is it really. I mean yeah. Air conditioned you got the ac blasting. No-one suspects it until magnet with a picture of yourself. Flying hawk on the side oh to magnet. Yeah and you didn't ever think that you need like a utility vehicle to i. Have i feel like yeah. People expect me to roll up some big truck which i do also have okay and you know historically have have transported the birds around in the truck but since moving to l. a. I'm you know i'm intr. I drive all over town for work with the birds and so it just gets better gas mileage. So adam go off. You've got plenty hawks and plenty cars as well. Yup so your instagram hawk on hand. That's kind of like how i got. Even further looped in is. I started following your instagram. And i mean it's a great account. You've dude you have some beautiful pictures on here but you've also been posting just like wild stuff on your story and like for a town like los angeles. I'm seeing a lot of the similar shit when i'm like clicking through my stories of people following and then yours is always on some whole other level like everybody's out getting lunch or whatever and your boasting it's like one hundred percent a unique experience of this town like there was one day whereas kind of clicking through and you're like i found a hive of bees and then you like pulled out like it seemed like you had be keeping equipment in your car ready to go but you like he'll grab this hive of bees. Took them back to his house. And then he was like doing all sorts of stuff with the beehive in his. Okay pretty business property. How these in a prius back to your like. How do you do that. Saying they gotta hawk in a prius. Oh you have a special bond with the be thing was an anomaly. That's not a daily occurrence But in downtown la skid row and he found some vs. so i'll just give you a little bit of context about the be thing that probably also will like help. Maybe your listeners. Okay clarify a little bit. So i work as a falconer for a living. Yes so the. What the i base i do. It's called falconry based bird abatement. It's basically a glorified pest control. So i make my living basically chasing pigeons away for fancy buildings or seagulls or crows or any kind of nuisance bird. That's causing some sort of a problem whether it's like an apartment complex that's getting covered in pigeon shit or you know A producer. Who's trying to get some footage. And the seagulls are caught causing a ruckus or their dive bombing the drone..

I would like them nowhere. Our first expert is Lara. Night please introduce to Libya. Let me out my name is Lauren. White. And I'm actually in jeans designer. Which means I work on developing and designing sheets. Thank you very much Laura. Let's meet our second expert. Simon fastener Simon. Please introduce yourself to Libya Libya. I'm Simon Baz ner and I'm a denim influencers. We'll have to learn more about that. I'm not sure what that is or how you can influence your denim. But we're going to find out. Hey Lisa is that a bootleg copy of those sounds sounds originally sourced by me. It's actually time right. That's when we put our experts on the hot seat while they enter Olivia's questions Lisa. Who should we put on the hot seat? I Simon because I want to be an influence there and maybe if I picked him he'll tell me how to be an influence. Okay that's fair all right. Well I are you influenced. I'm an insulin. So you're influenced. Let's see how that works? Okay Olivia what question do you have for Simon to start? Simon? What's a gene influencer? Gene or Denim influence is an expert in all things denim or genes so When people are interested in What type of accessories would go with a certain type of Denham or a certain type of gene? That's where I come in and I let them know a what would go with that and be where they can get the best and most fashion forward version of that. I run a blog entitled GET THEM DENIM DOT Com. That's why keep everyone up to date with the latest denim fashion designer. So if the denim you want exists. I'll show you where to get them. Okay Laura. What is your favorite style of jeans? My favorite style of jeans is a High Rise Jack Gang. They're super soft and they're super stretchy and they're my favorite. I wear them every day. They're called high-rise. Because they go the way from your feet over your head and then the Zipper is where it opens for your face. You might be onto something. I think you're influencing LISA. I've questions for Simon. Where were the first pair of jeans? Made by WHO in the first pair of jeans were made in Italy in the town of Genoa and by and by WHO will they're made for genetic for for Genoese sailors so They were made by emend named named Lawrence Influenza. Okay Laura what made you want to become an expert on jeans while I got my first job in jeans in Los Angeles about twenty years ago and my favorite part about getting into the denim business is denim is a very specific fabric. If you don't wash it and you wear over and over and over for many years it starts taking on the characteristics of the person that's wearing that garment which is really really cool so my job is actually to recreate some of these really awesome old vintage garments. Make it new make it really modern out of new fabrics. It's so much fun in really creative sue. You're saying it's best not to wash your jeans and you are correct. Actually have a well. That depends so if you're if you're buying a really stretchy gene that means it's going to have some spandex something in it to make it really stretchy. That goes with cotton. You're going to want to be careful not to wash those james but every two or three times you wear it because that heat and a lot of water will actually give a little wear and tear on that gene so you can do some spot cleaning. Sometimes if you have a really rare pair of jeans you might want to do a couple of fun. Things like put them in the freezer. Put them on the snow hanging out to dry. You just want to be careful not to hit them with too much hot water into wash them too. Often were other than giving them a fun trip while them in the freezer well some people think it might be a wise tell but I have personally found that sometimes bacteria can grow on anything actually so when you WanNa wash something most of the time. You're not only just getting out the hot chocolate that spilled on your garment but you're actually just washing something to be cleaner when you put that in a really cold environment just like putting a rug outside in the snow in the wintertime it can actually kill bacteria that might be on that garment cool. Denver's that y your backyard is covered in rugs. I think you're at the wrong house. Lisa Oh wait Do you live in a rug store. I do not oh I was at the wrong. Okay go ahead okay. This is for both of you. What are most teams made of? Who wants to take? That sure. I'll take its motions are all denim is really is a is mostly made from cotton So I'd say cotton and then for the for the more stretchy jeans lasting or you know Three percents SPANDEX so most of the older jeans before we would say probably about Nineteen ninety-five nineteen ninety. Eight were one hundred percent cotton. Since then we've added more and more stretchy stuff that goes with the cotton which we call spandex or like war lasting that being said some jeans actually like the ones that way right now go up two hundred percent stretch so those numbers of the new fibres that you have to add to get the genes. Really Stretchy has gone up and stretch. Jeans are actually the most popular jeans right now in the market cool. Hey stretch jeans. If you're listening good for YOU CONGRATS. You did it. Or she may be stretching the Truth Laura. What are the most current trends and jeans so one of the number one trends in jeans right now? It's actually two polar opposite idea so one is getting back to a no stretch jeans or what. We call a rigid gene for women. In addition to that really stretchy high wasted jeans is also a big trend on the women's sign on the men's side. We have a couple of things coming back so we have a skinny slouch gene. Plus a little bit of puddle at the bottom. That's a cool word for a really long gene. That shows off your sneakers. In addition to that we also have the Dad Jean coming back which President Obama rocked all the

Hong Kong's divide: Protests for democracy, rally for China
"Oh call has seen its biggest political crisis in decades the last ten weeks natasha khan is a hong kong correspondent for the wall street journal. I've been covering the pro democracy marcy movement in hong kong since two thousand fourteen and i've been covering the current round of protests since it started. There's an unlikely trigger for these protests a murder order in taiwan. There's a couple that was from hong kong that were traveling to thailand for a trip and the boyfriend and that couple had murdered his his girlfriend allegedly he fled back to hong kong and taiwanese authorities asked for him to be taken back because hong kong. They didn't have an extradition agreement with taiwan. Authorities began to really try to push through this proposed law which would allow for hong kong the people and other suspects to be extradited to china and other countries for trial. This proposed law was really contentious because china china has a more opaque judicial system and there were concerns about human rights abuses for people who are tried in that system people in hong kong were unhappy happy with this law for one particular reason it could let china reach into hong kong a semi autonomous region and apply chinese law there baz as more and more people in hong kong society started asking for the spill to be either delayed or withdrawn and there wasn't a response of the government momentum began to build for a giant giant protests essentially on june ninth which ended up drawing an estimated one million people on the streets. It was a hot day was humid and people were waiting. I mean seriously seven hours to just walk down the streets and to make the statement that they cared that maybe the government should rethink this bill. There are people in wheelchairs are grandmothers. There were people with their families families. There was a a really broad costs action holcombe there and what happened was that i think about an hour. After the march was officially declared don the government it didn't come out and address these one million people which represents like seventh of this population but they issued a press release. This press release acknowledged the protesters concerns but said in essence that the protesters simply misunderstood the bill it also said the extradition bill would continue to move through hong kong's legislative council on june twelve and so once again people in hong kong took to the streets on on june twelfth was very tense mood and in the mid to late afternoon. Police started clearing the protesters with quite a lot of force. You know they use a lot of tear gas rubber bullets which really caused a huge reaction society here that in turn led an estimated two million people to come out the next weekend the weekend after that and the the weekend after that protesters kept coming out they have shown up in malls in hospitals and this week they shut down the airport in the scenes beans. Were were one of solidarity. Many people took the day off from work to go and support and you had people just chanting throughout the whole day just chanting sitting on the airport arrival hall chancing for the government to listen to them. You know there's a term in cantonese which is language we speak in hong kong and it's called guy and means at oil and it's really kind of like a word of encouragement to say hey like i got your back. You know you can do it and and one of the biggest chance that you'll always see now like every few days when there's a protest as people people saying hongkongers at oil you know hung out and guy out. There are a lot of things adding oil to these protests the way the protesters are organizing online the way police are responding but the driving force underneath it all has to do with this extradition bill not the bill itself but what it could mean for hong kong hong kong's leader carrie. Lam said she would suspend the bill after those early protests but she hasn't withdrawn it entirely entirely it may seem like a pretty nuance difference but protesters are worried that lamb may be serving china's interests not hong kong's from the protesters point of view if you could do this one thing and you're still not doing it. Is it because china has said they're not going withdraw the bill. It feels like there's this attention between the hong kong government and china like you have said distrust right of the hong kong government that they aren't just puppets of beijing yes and and i think that that's something that didn't happen overnight.

Why Werner Herzog loves cat videos
"Today on studio. Three sixty what energizes the legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog sometimes when I don't know how to order my thoughts, I switched on crazy cat videos and immediately. I'm rejuvenated. We talk a lot about cat videos, the art of narration and his latest movie meeting. Gorbachev. Plus from the first time you heard this song, it was just absolutely mind. Melting. The story behind when doves cry, which prints released prepare to feel old thirty five years ago this week. This is what it sounds like the head on studio. Three sixty right after this. This is scheduled for sixty I'm currently at I'm sitting on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial this first level of guard this Thomas Jefferson's vegetable, I'd like to have the roasted chicken very well done, editing is all about timing. I tried to get a little bit away from the actual subject must get sick of your place, right? Three, sixty with good Anderson. Werner Herzog has made more than sixty movies. They're often about man versus extreme forces, the Amazon jungle in FitzGerald. Oh, active volcanoes in the documentary into the inferno. His latest film meeting, Gorbachev also fits into that frame. It's the story of Mikhail. Gorbachev versus a crumbling political and economic system. Food consensus, Kevin over a six month period last year and the year before Hertzog went to Moscow and interview the very last president of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Sekkei bitch. I'm sermon. And the first term and that you probably met wanted to kill you. Hertzog and a co director Andre singer, combined interviews with lots of archival footage to tell the story of the one Soviet leader almost everybody in America, and the west light even adored, and the film is all held together by Herzog signature narration here. His home village is it looks today. It is hard to imagine that from such a godforsaken place in the middle of nowhere, one of the greatest leaders of the twentieth century emerged. And when Hertzog is here with me now to talk about meeting Gorbachev, sir. Welcome back to studio. Three six eight thank you. Thank you for having me. So you feel three long conversations with Gorbachev. How did you prepare for those mostly reading I did a lot of homework? I read compensates memoirs Rhoda most excellent biography by William helpmann. Otherwise, I arrived without pain, my hands. I didn't have a catalog of Chris that would rectal down. It was just a conversation from men to men carried on by curiosity. Wave. I was gonna lead me or us. Was unknown the film talks about how Gorbachev is beloved and considered a hero by many Germans, and obviously being a German, a west German at the time, you must have paid keen attention to the Soviet Union at that moment. Sure. And among other things when Germans reunification were somehow abandoned, give him up the real real big thing, about reunification, these it came without bloodshed. It came without violence. Gorbachev allowed peacefully his predecessors would send tanks in and, and suppress the liberation movements of countries like Hungary Poland is terminal. You just name, it chuckle Slovakia, take a Slovak, yo cyst that was attitude of the Soviet Ryan and Gorbachev completely different in his approach and is in west Germany had been separate countries. For essentially your entire life. It just must have seend being a forty odd year old man, having never known anything else impossible that this was never going to happen. Yes, I personally believed I would not see during my lifetime something of that magnitude would take much more time history would be slow, but I was surprised. And when the wall came down in Idi nine and reunification happens, as you say, in the film. So quickly crazily quickly. What was your feeling when I heard about the wall coming down? I was in the southern tip of South America, a mountain, and with five days delay through shortwave radio hurt that the won't had come down, and it's this kind of joy in the shadow of elation, his never left me, I was pleased, given the seriousness of the subject by the touches of humor in this film, like. When they're cutting down ceremonially cutting down the barbed wire between Austria, Hungary, and spend a long time showing this bit of the Austrian nightly news that night I'm going to play that clip. Busy plea for the entire world. I n curtain started to be lifted. However, Austrian evening news was curious about the magnitude of the event retail two minutes. I didn't really metric their lead story was about slugs. It's very funny because they advise you to fill up old with beer in slugs, as lovers of beer would crawl it get drunk and you could harvest them in the morning, then on the miscellaneous much later. So the anchorwoman comes to mention that I am curtain. Being lifted. So it points to that sometimes news completely clueless. In other news, the Cold War is over. Yes. Yes. Do you feel as though humor is, is central to your sensibility, as a filmmaker as a creator, I think this human almost all of my films, and I've been labelled as grim teutonic sort of God knows warrior who, who is determined to risk his life in all all this, all this kind of nonsense. So what you spot it is. There's a lot of human gover of, of course, a lot of human other films. I wanna talk more about your narration, and how you do it. Do you begin with some rough draft? Or do you make the film? I know I the Nori I write the take spontaneously during editing and I know here heft to explain something and I write it down. On incessantly and in the editing room. I have very professional microphone, and I speak the commentaries. Right, then and there while I'm proceeding and sometimes I notice the texts overlaps into the next scene. It's three seconds too long. So I would delete one or two words and rephrase it a little bit in speak again and it would fit. That's amazing. So literally, as you are cutting scenes together, you're coming up with the necessary narration, and recording simultaneous. Yes. Exactly. Is that what I do that extrordinary? Well, I realize it audiences like the way I narrate in not, it's not only my voice. It is a text the context that I create the observation said, I make. So I'm writing the commentaries, and I'm speaking them and ended makes a lot of sense and gives a coherence to films that they would otherwise not. What have? And in his someone there, directing you. You know, saying, hey Werner, let's let's do another take that. No with exception of the editor. He is the only one who would tell me the phrase, doesn't sound right? The grammar is a little bit crooked. Why don't you change? So earth of words, his says to me pronounciation of the word should be different in, in English. So I, I do have helped India seek advice. That's amazing. And also, I'm I'm struck by how demystifying you are of the process. There is nothing. Mysterious about filmmaking. It's just professional work period. Here is a great example of that work from your film, grizzly, man. One of my favorites. This is some of the last football shot by the subject, Timothy Treadwell, a grizzly bear enthusiast. It's a close up of one of his bears, and what haunts me is that in. All the faces of all the bears that trade will ever filmed, I discover no kinship now understanding no mercy. I see only the overwhelming indifference of nature. To me, there's no such thing as a secret world of the bears. And displaying stare speaks only of a half board interest in food, but for Timothy Treadwell despair was a friend, a savior. In a way in that makes film, different and unique I Esa filmmaker heaven ongoing argument with treadmill. Sometimes trade will say something very new agey into how fluffy these Baz I in to hug them, and you have to sing to them and, and here on of sudden night. Chime in say here. I differ with Treadwell in my opinion, wild nature is different. It's chaotic and in dangerous and murderous, not fluffy, like involved, his knee movies. So I just have an argument with him. You didn't always narrate your films, in fact, in your early films. There are other people doing their rations. I believe it was, the, the great ecstasy of would cover Steiner in the seventies that was your first first one. Here's a bit of that finished Pessoa Costa sheaf league in his. Emas. He even so what, what made you decide to start doing that? Forty five years ago. I didn't. Yes, I didn't decide it, it was the signature of TV series all the other films have filmmaker appear in the film and giving the chronically, so right? Not only my voice, head to be in a head to be physically onscreen, as well. I hated the beginning. And, and then I thought when the film was finished I should do at least voice myself I felt uncomfortable but I hit the feeling afterwards, that was something good about it. Steiner's Esther training spoon. Sponsored Fatu got. Wow, your voice was so much higher. You know how Americans feel now about Werner Herzog narrations do Germans here. You're germination think nothing special about that. No. Since I speak own mother tongue. It doesn't really stick out like a sore thumb and insurance, of course. Yes. You'll sense that my first language was Bavarian dialect. It's like let's say Texan, drawl, ereck ignites must come from Texas while he must come from Bavaria, right? The earliest one documentary of yours that I can find that you narrated in English was herdsmen of the sun, which is about a nomadic tribe in the Sahara. This is a clip in the Republic of new Shia. The voter behalf gathered for the annual celebration of care covari towards the end of the rainy season in the month of September tribal meetings are held all over the half desert. Now we hear that we go. Of course, Werner Herzog. That's what he does. But when you first started narrating thirty years ago, was there any pushback from US distributors country Lee say so that was very quick. Aknowledge -ment that audiences feel comfortable and they like the way I make things clear. He really understand what I'm saying. Although I speak with the Nexen with a heavy ex and not as heavy as, for example Kissinger, but that's true. That's true to audiences responded favorably. And that's always a good sign. Your voice is part of the attraction ES, India can tell that it's very easy to make satires and to imitate my voice, you see the internet is full of imposed us. Do you know there's a? Actor and writer Paul Tompkins who has done one. Do you know it, let me play a bit for you and see what you think this is him doing the character on Andy dailies podcast? Okay, if you don't mind I've just uploaded this review to yelp. This is the trader Joe's on hype urine.
"You may know that bats about son waves off objects to build a sensory map of their surroundings. A sort of sonar called echo location when sound waves bounce off prey mainly. Insects. That's hone in on the signal to locate their meal sonar can be blocked at one study has found that Mexican free tailed bats blocked Philo bat sonar signals when competing for food. The study began by looking at something else how tiger boss fend off big Brown bats by jamming their sonar signals. But when the researchers analyze the acoustic data they also notice calls made by Mexican free tailed bats that have been flying high. Above scientists recorded the moth goals, and they found that the Mexican bats. Rulemaking sounds very similar to the tiger moths sonar disrupting calls and follow up study. The researchers recording Mexican Baz out on the hunt making. Sure to capture what they thought were sonar jamming calls, they then tested the recordings in the field when they played the sonar jamming single just as a bet was about to catch an insect. The bet was nearly eighty six percent less likely to succeed. But when they played the signal that other times or altered signals pitch it had no effect on hunting success. It's no surprise that. Like most animals, bats compete for food. But it is surprising. That bats use sonar not only to locate their next meal, but also to prevent their fellow hunters from doing the same.
