And how mccray was the DH in his last year with the and he goes around following Bo and he takes the pictures and starts throwing them up in the air and everyone starts throwing their own pictures up in the air. And George Brett looks around and he takes four of them and hangs him up by his locker. Everyone else is chucks him away. He was arrogant, but he was cocky. He was confident. He was not arrogant.

Hollywood Holds No Glamour for AJ Without Robert Evans
"Yesterday, marked two years since my beloved friend and tremendous maverick filmmaker and producer Robert Evans died. There's so many dates I carry in my head. We all do. And I'm a little embarrassed to say, you know, some dates are getting a little fuzzy up there. I'm getting older. But for whatever reason, my heart, the last two years anyway, always sends me a red flare up to my head whenever October 26th is coming. Anybody who knew Evans or kid as he was called, as you know, and he also called you kid back. So all you did was call each other kid. I had a couple of friends like that, Bo diedel. Calls himself bone. He calls you though. Some people are like that. But so many of us can not forget the day he died. You know, it was a very rough thing. I mean, we knew he'd never live forever. And a lot of us were there when he had that those terrible strokes that began to debilitate him and take away a little bit of his brilliant mind, but if still, when you heard about his passing, it was shocking. And I wrote in my first book much of which was written while I slept in his beautiful guesthouse on woodlawn drive in Beverly Hills behind the huge iron gates and the winding driveway, and of course that fountain in front of the door of the huge fighting cock as in rooster, but with Evans, it clearly meant another thing. But I wrote in the forward of my book when I was thanking people, I said something like, you know, God bless Robert Evans, I don't want to live in this town without you. Something that affect and I, you know, I couldn't, I couldn't feel the way any stronger right now. He's gone. I'm not there. Currently, but I'll be there in a week or so. And I don't want to be there. Not to say that LA doesn't have some attributes and of course it does, but I don't want to live in that business, let's say. Without Evans a few miles away to talk to and found some questions off of or just shoot the shit. And I said that when I wrote the book in 99, 2000, I want to came out actually. I wrote it in 92nd, 96, 97. And here I am. In 2021, two years with him gone and no, the town holds very little glamour without him there.

Why a Child Needs a Father
"A young boy needs his father in his life. And of course, I'm in my son's life, you know, he comes for all the holidays in the summer and I talked to him on the phone almost every other day. And it helps. If I didn't talk to my son, if I didn't call him, if I wouldn't discipline him or criticize him or critique him when he gets in trouble at school, if I didn't show up at the school, what would happen to my son? He would be a statistic. Even though he has my DNA in my blood in him, his prominent is his father, he is, he will be a statistic if I wasn't there. Now some people probably went in with, you know, why are you not that? Long story, just know he was born in my state and somehow he not in my state no more, all right? So but I understand that regardless of the situation is that I need to make sure I'm present in any way that I can be, whether it's a phone call, whether it's, you know, my son knowing that he has a father that loves him that cares about him that he can look up to makes a lot of difference. Now with my marriage now with my youngest son, Bo, who's downstairs right now, he's going to experience life in a very different manner. And this is a precisely why I tell young people to be married before you have children. Because inadvertently, I don't know how good you are, how spiritual you are. You can end up putting your kids in a position where they are lacking a consistent father in the home.
Matt McPherson, Founder of Mathews Archery, on Getting Into Bows
"Looking at it, guys gave two great ministries here, you know, that you're able to use for manager through the guitars and through the bow hunting as well. You also are very active in helping others get into the sport as well. Is that if somebody's out there today and they're looking to get into bows, they're looking at maybe and again, I had a lot of dealing with songwriters as you've had as well. And these are some of the most artistic people in the world. What would you say to them as far as chasing that dream or how Ellen and different note that songwriters are a little bit different, but how do you encourage people to get involved with either target or honey? If they don't want to go hunting, but the target, they're just enrichment of having a bow in their hand. You know, usually we start with the genesis bow. I don't know if you're familiar with the genesis goal that we have, but we were one of the pioneers that worked with Kentucky wildlife. We call them DNR up there up here. I'm not sure. You call them dean anyway. They were interested in getting kids back involved in being outside. They've gotten so tied into the digital world. The fake world. That's tough to get kids away from their own computers anymore. And so we started a thing called national arching schools program with a Kentucky DNR, have you. And we're able to I developed a book called the genesis. In the genesis has no let off. So typical compound bows when you pull them back if it's 60, it'll be 60 about here. And then it goes down to let's say 15 pounds. Or 12 pounds. Well, a genesis Bo, I realized, hey, we don't need any let off on a genesis book because this is going to be a 20 pound ball the whole way. And that way, you can stop wherever you want, because let's say I'm 5 9 and let's say I have a 28 inch draw and you might be 6 foot and you might have a 29er straw. You know, how do you do how do you make a universal bowl that can easily be handed from one kid to a neck or to even an adult? And say, you don't have to readjust it. They can just pull it back to where they're comfortable. So I had designed this book called the genesis. And it literally is a 20 pound bow. That you pull back to where you're comfortable, and that's where you shoot from.

"bo" Discussed on The Lead
"In all of professional sports, no teams fans have gone longer without seeing their team win a playoff game than the Cincinnati Bengals. 30 seasons and counting. And it turns out it could be because of a curse. At first, even was kind of funny, you know, laughing about it and all of that, but then you know as it came up more and more frequently it had some validity all of a sudden. Maybe this thing is real. Today, the athletics Paul Dana junior and Jay Morrison on the spell that might have been cast on the Bengals and whether Joe burrow and company have the power to break it. From wondering the athletic, I'm Andres kelto, it's Thursday, January 13th, and this is the lead. Paul and Jay, welcome to the show. Hey, thanks for having us. So, guys, we're going to dive into something that I had actually never heard of before until I read your recent story about it. But it's something that is apparently very well known in Cincinnati. And that is the so called curse of Bo Jackson. So guys, first, could you just explain what this idea of the curse of Bo Jackson is and how it came to be? It's not like the Billy goat curse in Chicago or a guy said, I'm cursing you and it live I can't remember the first time I heard someone say or mention the curse of Bo Jackson. I actually went to nexus and looked for the first time it appeared in print and the earliest I could find was 2014, but I know people in Cincinnati have been talking about it longer than that. Basically, the curse of Bo Jackson starts from the last time the Bengals won a playoff game, which was January 6th, 1991 against the then Houston oilers, they win that game. They go on to play the Raiders the next week in the next round and in that game Bo Jackson breaks free down the right sideline. One man to beat him from behind Kevin walker sings another touchdown. And Kevin walker linebacker at the time tackles him and ends up hurting his hip. And walker as he made the tackle had only the one leg to grab and apparently Bo Jackson shaken up a bit as not to gotten his feet as yet. That was a 34 and it would be the last play of Bo Jackson's career, and it also would be the last time the Bengals came off a playoff win because they lost that game. That was the first of 8 losses in a row that has been going ever since and it has included almost impossible heartbreak and bad luck along almost every single step of the way for them to be at 30 seasons, 31 years now since that happened. Well, Paul, you mentioned that there's been a fair amount of heartbreak that has followed since then. So walk us through some of the biggest moments that have happened for the Bengals in the playoffs since 1991. What has made people think that maybe there really is something to this idea of a curse? Oh, lord, I hope too many Bengals fans aren't following along with this journey, but we'll walk through it. 2005 really was one of the biggest moments. I mean, they were back. They had maybe their best teammate hadn't forever. Let's not forget they had the losing his decade in NFL history in the 90s. They were just abysmal. They finally get good. They draft Carson Palmer number one overall in 2003 in 2005. They are incredible. They get to the first round of the playoffs, a game against the Steelers and on the first series of the game, the longest Bengals pass and postseason history Paul Mark completes a 66 yarder to Chris Henry and gets hit by chemo on all Hoffman and tears his knee up. Palmer was walked after the throw. Timo von O hoffen hits him at the left knee. He looks like he's almost all and in the end is a tough shot. They lose that game. They go on to lose an O 9. They go on to lose in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 all in the first round of the playoffs. They make it to 2015. They have their best team they've had since 2005, they end up losing in a game that features meltdowns of epic proportions in the wildcard round to steelers that year, including them basically having the game salted away handing it off in Jeremy hill would fumble. Jay-Z had it for a moment and now has picked up by cockerel. Oh my goodness. What a change of events here. Fred Roethlisberger would drive the other way thanks to unbelievable penalties by vontaze burfict and Adam Jones and had a spike, but they're gonna go ahead and go for the kick didn't all likelihood would win it if he makes it and the kick is drilled and the Steelers are back ahead at 1816. I mean this has got to go down. As one of the worst defeats ever imposed on yourself with the penalties. And that was really the point I think when everybody kind of looked around and said, maybe this curse thing is real because it just continues to keep showing up. It has just been one thing after another. And if it's not a successful season being derailed by something crazy penalties injury, something like that, then it's what we've seen the last four or 5 years where the team has just been at the bottom of the division and not competitive at all. And now they are back as division champs. And I think a lot of Bengals fans are kind of expecting a win, but holding their breath at the curse doesn't continue. Well, Paul, you actually spoke with Kevin walker, the guy who put that fateful hit on Bo Jackson back in the day. And it sounds like that sort of weight on him a lot over the years. What did he tell you about that? Well, I mean, it was really like any other football play for him, but when you say wait on him, I mean, it was everybody placing weight on. I mean, he joked about how he was a football coach here in town. He stayed living in Cincinnati. So when he meets anybody, people say, oh yeah, you know Kevin walker. It's something always inevitably comes up and part of the introductions and everything. I mean, it's like my tag comes with it. Oh, you know the guy in the book Jackson career? Oh, he doesn't do this responsible for the curse. And it just always is like my tagline. You know, he does laugh about it, but it's like been three decades now. Can we be done introducing Kevin walker as the guy who's responsible for the curse? He's just kind of it's time to turn the page. Yeah, I'm ready to put it to rest. It's been a long time and it's nice to turn back in the hunt, but it's unfortunate that when they are, you know, that comes from center, you know? Well, even Bengals fans who don't believe in curses might agree that this team does have a curse of sorts in the form of it's often frustrating ownership for those who might not be aware of the current owner Mike Brown is the son of Paul Brown, who was the team's cofounder way back in 1968 and its very first coach. And ever since Mike Brown took over in 1991, he has had his fair share of critics. Can you guys talk a little about the criticisms of him and what if.

"bo" Discussed on Good One: A Podcast About Jokes
"He's actually bad at comedy. And i'm the only is good at it. It's just like how it has the word so there's two virgins they're sort of like people who are more established being like. I can't do that. It was so relaxing to watch a special that. I was not jealous right. It's like i sell jen kirkman and laurie kilmartin. Just being like. I can't do that. This was a cool. If someone doing something go the form neal brennan appreciate it because it was like. Oh this is nice that people doing this with the form. There is a bit of imagine comedians. That are like five years. Who were like this year fucked up my rhythm. I was gonna get new faces and then i was going to bubble ought and i worked in an and this another reminder of what i've been seeing of like megan salter going from this person on twitter. Now she's on a tv show. What about me. You know like that's always going to happen comedians. that's just how get the world. they'll never find two other persons success that they can use as an example of their own personal failure or their own example of like why the systems working against them. I mean i think at least from my perspective. Bo is truly such an extraordinary case. There are so many other youtubers. There are other people around. He one was. I think it's user pretty good but like seemingly is better at that and then by twenty like in those between sixteen and twenty. He's like. I want to be serious and be taken seriously. And he toured. He did live shows and like i do think he was. He understood the basic idea of test out jokes and a little bit. And then you've got more and more comfortable performing. I do think he is not a full example of like. Let's take out the entire system. But i think the hope is and they feel like the people like. I think like juniors the person who's the best at stand up comedy who also understands why it's okay to do other stuff and he's like the better thing is if comedians understands like do everything. Try to make take talks while also you're losing more. Comedians are like there was a time when most comedians would never done a podcast where it seemed like it was do or dilute their artistic growth. Now if you don't do a podcast of your fallen behind right if you're not on social media it's a choice. Will there come point where in the same way that comedians. Who don't podcasts. Feel like they're letting themselves down career wise that if you've been doing it for eight years you don't go to film school or you're like take a film and learn how to use different cameras. I don't think that's a crate. I'm just looking down the line but or is such an anomaly. Which is just as likely i'm not but there's something interesting in the way there. Is this audience. That wants to see stand up as like one person standing on a stage and no one else has anything to do with it. And that is what distinguishes that art form from anything else and so part of the like mystique of this special. Is that although it is a vastly more sort of like films. Kind of a thing that that he did it right like it. Is this distillation of a single person. And he's the only and so we value it and like it. It sort of is stand up because he did all of it right true which hides the fact. There are plenty of tv exists. You can make comedy where somebody else does. The camera part right. There are other ways of creating visual vers and like. There's the sense that collaboration is cheaper to have somebody writing jokes for you is cheaper and it would be interesting if all of the comedians were like. Oh shit do i have to be an autour. In like twelve different languages were instead pushed into a thinking of like. Maybe the thing i want to do is just collaborate with people. Yeah yup and like we had a co worker. Who was like bummed when she watched the credits like anyone else credited. I get it i like it more. I want to talk with someone. Said they know person who shot some of it or one of the producers. that's credited does post production producing so that means someone else was collaborating. They weren't in the room doing what we think of as the creation process but they were probably there. They've they were probably doing a pass. He special thanks his cinematographer in eighth grade and a lighting person that he's used what is that. What was that need. I assume it. He sent emails being. Like what camera do i need to do this. What filters don't need to do this. And yes he set up those lights because as the pandemic and someone can come over maybe to do it and that took time like to me. I like that better does not diminish it all that a person with a vision was like oh i have a vague idea of the colors i need but i don't know why to make sense. I think it's less about him doing all by himself. In more the creativity in the constraint of like how can i do this all in a room with the other hands with me not necessarily completely out of my own brain. There's these restaurants where people feel like they need to make all the parts of it right and then they think that's more farm-to-table than where it's like in europe. Every restaurant making their own bread. They got their bread person. And that doesn't mean is less authentic. I agree with you as i think. I like it better that way. I also think there which i think. You're agree with me that the road to collaboration without form and structure.
"bo" Discussed on Good One: A Podcast About Jokes
"And i'd watch it and i'm like i don't find this stuff that funny and i remember the first time i watched make happy. It's like oh. It's interesting. But like i don't find a lot of jokes and then i would think about make happy for years. Then see how the sort of audience relationship stuff has become much more common for people talk about most recently. There's james e cassar special and he talked about how people kept on telling me needs to watch bo burnham. It's like. I can't because i'll and then he would be like. Oh we're doing the same thing. So i had just been thinking about like oh. Like unknowingly became incredibly influential. You don't know that the time that can be really influential thing. And then i spoke to him and he's so good at talking about what he's trying to do and we talked about make happy and sort of the main idea of make happy was going through these panic attacks. He's having all this complicated feelings about his relationship an audience and performance and he sort of stumbled on this thing of wants to criticize performance while also giving people what performance offers and. That's like the thing that always find so interesting and to me. The pinnacle of what these people can do which is satirized the thing but also gave you the thing so it resulted in two things as we go into talking about the special which is one. My expectations of this were insanely high. Because i was planning on my experience of watching this the first time to feel like what it's been like to make happy for four years. Which is now. I realized too hard of thing and the other thing is and i think some people have this relationship to bow which is maybe incredibly skeptical of the emotional parts going into it and i'll start with my sort of first experience of it. Which was i was watching it. I knew catherine and meg were waiting for me to finish it to share my opinions. And i was like i think it's pretty good and she was like that's it. I was like kind of. We have been arguing about this special in like vultures slack. For days there are couple of pieces of it that we keep coming back to that we keep like. I think it needs this. I think it means that. I can't decide how i feel about it. And it's not just jesse like there are lots of people who are really piecing apart a couple of songs in particular. And i think there is totally an argument to be made that like it is a comedy special and it should not be that hard to understand. Roughly what he means. One of the things i like about emission is that i can't think of a great work of art. That is is so clear is okay. I'll only be read almost of great art that it can be interpreted multiple ways over the years. I'm not even sure that. I think this special qualifies but i think it is true that pinning its point of view is a little tricky because in my opinion the point of view the special which is different. From whether it's good or bad has to do with perspective and form in my opinion the special like has these satirical songs about the zeitgeist in the beginning although it has sort of. He's doing this to stave off. He brings up the idea of suicide. The beginning which is probably the part of the special that i'm most ambivalent about but then the song where you're trying to be funny while stuck in a room to me. That's that's a turning point in the special in in some ways his career. And i think that for me that unlocked the meaning for a lot of special because there parts of that song that he repeats in various points in the special both musical parts and lines from that that i think tip is handled it and i think that also tidbits the special from being this sort of special about sort of steer songs being personal. It pivots to his backstory. And you see him watching himself and there's song problematic which is like all his operas and two it's a great satire of the person making apologies. And how they make sort of sexy and order themselves in the style of madonna video or something but it also operates like a backstory. It tells you where he's from what the room was where he was and where he wanted to escape from church on sundays. Start doing comedy. When i was just a shelter i wrote offensive. Shed and please forgive me. I did not be day. Is man two times change getting old. Are you gonna be town bad. Is dan unbanning anybody going over the town and the song stuck in the room. The reasoning attorney point is it's completely serious ernest. It's the first song on this special doesn't try to be funny at all and to me. It's like kids.
"bo" Discussed on Good One: A Podcast About Jokes
"And welcome to the specials. I am jesse. David fox with me as always my co-host catherine ben air donc my producer jesmyn molly and with us not as always but because this is a special occasion and i feel like everyone who does thing like this for a living needs to talk about the special much as possible joining us. Is jason cinnamon of the new york times. Thank you jason for joining us. Thank you catherine. Jesmyn for being here as always. Hello everyone be here. We are talking about bo. Burnham's two thousand twenty one special inside which was released on netflix. usually jason. When we do this. I provide a variety of context. But since this is all right now we all know the context. Which is there's this pandemic that is was happening is happening. This filmed seemingly already -an during this. I don't think goes already during this. But that's a conversation for later and that's what it is in the context of bose career. Two thousand sixteen he released make happy which was a big deal and then seemingly was like taking a break from up his way of taking a break was directing his first movie. It immediately was a huge critical and financial success. He should have got nominated for an oscar but he did win an independent spirit award. He was in promising young woman. And i had heard he was doing standup again. And we'd nussbaum tweeted one time about seeing him. Sometime in this interim but for most party was not focused on it these connected to a lot of projects yadda yadda behind the scenes. Pretty early on. I feel like early as march. We heard that he was releasing special. That he was working on and seemingly the release of the special was until when he finished it. They're gonna put it up. And so that is the nature of the back of inside. But i feel like a useful place to start is. What was that relationship to bo burnham before this special and it can go first jason. You're the guys you go i. Well you know one of the most fun parts about covering comedy for a while. Now is seeing artists evolves and i think in a weird way the complete arc of my career has sort of mapped onto over career. He was there from the start. And i've written about him at this point. Probably almost as much as i've written about anybody and at first he was a really great. I would say. I thought of him as a great story because he was one of the first youtube stars. I still think of him in fact some of the things. I think that our most interesting about this bo. Burnham actually does pose existential threat to the way a lot of comedians the world because his process of going from starting out where he is now is so different than other comedians. and the skills that he's picked up along the way. I think only would have happened in this particular process so at the time he was like a novelty curiosity a youtube star a very successful one and then he moved from being a really great story to somebody who really i think is like one of the more ambitious artists in this field. Somebody who i think has incredible range. I don't know what you think about this. But sometimes i feel like having a background in comedy doesn't matter so much with when i'm writing about something like other people could do justice same job. Following his career actually is quite being versed in. His work is useful in the same way. That like if somebody's reviewing the newborns as the movie who has a long track record that i think it it makes it much more understandable. So yeah i've liked. All of his work on had always had some reservations but i think like a lot of critics. I have a bias towards ambition. And he's somebody who in. This is a great example of it. I think who's always really ambitious. What's been interesting to watch that. I what his audience with the audience response to about him isn't always the same as what i respond to. But i'm also fab. I'm still bring a full circle. I'm still fascinated by him as a story along with being an artist. And i think with this special just like with his first youtube viral hit. It's resonating in. Its transcending comedy in this way. That is really interesting. Just men so. I definitely remember both from back in the youtube days. That was definitely on my radar. And then i don't think i was introduced to him and his specials until what i think that was his second right it was word towards words than what and my cousins who i feel like i brought up so many times on the show. Because they're like my whole like comedy origins. They showed me what completely blew my mind. And i kind of freaked out about how much i loved it. I loved actually showing that special two people going into this special. I was already like way too. Like in the bag for bo. Burnham till the objective. I love his work so cavern. Had you watched him before. I was like you need to become a comedy critic boards at the top of the list of things. You need to watch. Yeah yeah. I i was enough aware of a bunch of youtubers. I mean i was like college at this point. But i had seen a couple of his things but only in that context and then yes jesse forced me to be a comedy critic and he made a. It sounds like a joke. It's literally hand. Puppet and jesse was the burnham yes but much like that relationship than it is mostly about the arguing between then he made a list of i was like. Here's the thing. I don't know anything about comedy. And he's like. I'm just gonna make a list of specials and you can just watch those and that's fine and you'll be totally prepared to accommodate credit. That's not true and we need that list. Yeah i have. I still consulted but make happy was one of the ones right at the top and i remember watching that one and i remember i was like i can watch this whole list right now but he seemed really like this one was important so i started it was that was one of the first ones that i watched. And then i also then went and watched jesse's vulture conversation with bo- about that and the interesting thing for me has been seeing how of the stuff that comes up in make happy started showing up in other people's works as ideas not as forms in ways that i found really interesting but also like aren't they just saying the same thing that he didn't cut like didn't we do this already. But that has been really fascinating and then this special. I came to as jesse said we sort of knew it was going to be coming and i have also because i'm also tv critic have spent a lot of time thinking about like pandemic stuff in the last year and like what makes for a pandemic tv show because there are all of these kind of special event tv episodes particularly early on. What is it. What do we need from that kind of thing. What do we want from it. What feels terrible about it. And so i had already spent some time thinking about at what point. Pandemic related are is actually additive instead of just reflecting and so that that was sort of how i came into watching this my l. Enter the story as i've been alluded to. Why put it so high on that list of things to watch. Which is i feel like. I had watched bo burnham periodically. But i've i became attracted to the idea of bo. Burnham and burnham's ideas like bo burnham talking about bo burnham is still to me like the pinnacle bo burnham as like a comedian comedy unit so i heard him on. You made it weird. I'm like this is interesting..
"bo" Discussed on That's a Thing?!
"I understand kind of Where where it comes from in terms of like you're so used to being the one that's punched down on that that being somebody who can be punched up at is really jarring to millennials. Now but now they're they're thority figures zimmer's right there like teachers and stuff and so it it feels like they're increasingly beginning to represent the authority even as they don't feel like they have that authority themselves. So yeah it's it's fun to watch from my position and enlightened elders humor so i can look look at the millennials and go yellow dumb. I get to hold onto the ceiling for about three years. Maybe less time we're done recording. This moves so fast here. Yeah now we're going to get into heavy. Mentions of suicide because this is the bit that really talks about that. So if you wanna skip forward five minutes. That seem safe then. Yeah there's there's your warning for that So at the end of the song. Thirty bo says Twenty twenty and thirty another ten twenty thirty. I'll be forty in kill myself. Then and then the song ends then. He goes into another kind of internet moment. A kind of standard acknowledgement. That happens whenever self-harm language comes up and he starts talking about okay. Well you shouldn't kill yourself off. Here's why and then he takes a long time coming up with reasons then he starts explaining it and kind of referencing his own suicidality and then downplaying that in going. Yeah no you really shouldn't. And this is being projected onto himself. So there's a bow that is talking about this being projected onto the t shirt of another. Bo is just kind of looking away from it and letting it play out. Yeah and i. I told you this is actually maybe the most internet moment in the whole thing which says a lot given later song as a lot internet here. Why do you say that I say that because this is something. That's actually i think under talked about..
"bo" Discussed on That's a Thing?!
"That was very much a moment. And this is followed up by Just a little bit of dialogue and The i grabbed a quote was maybe Allowing giant digital media corporations to exploit the neuro chemical drama of our children for profit Maybe that was a bad call us. Which is exactly the sort of understated delivery that i'm very used to as well online. I'm sure it appears elsewhere. It's sort of comedic timing But but yeah it's very true. That was probably bad. Probably not great and is followed up by the various adult song. That might be awkward to talk about. So i don't know we want to. I know we weren't mature content. But i don't know how how what we're holding herself to. I think we can have earned the right to say the word sexting. Who'll that is what that song is. Yeah that is what that song as a boat. It's also a kind of like there's not a lot. It's not very deep. The singles kind of made me wonder if this was like kind of his equivalent of a trunk tune like that people who write Musicals there was a certain moment in the history of musical theatre where composers would just have what they would call trunk tunes which was like stuff they wrote got cut. They're gonna resurrected at some point and put it in the next show. Sure and i feel like bo might have written some other time and decided you know what would fit. Right here sexting. Yeah it doesn't it doesn't especially at to inside as amounting series of things does have very funny lines in it. I will say up eraser headline yeah. That's all we're going to say. Yeah the she sends back a snowman crisis super rent for my head. What does it mean like the randomness. People say like randomness isn't funny. If it's unexplained randomness is because this hilarious rarely sexting is followed up there..
"bo" Discussed on That's a Thing?!
"I looked up afterwards. Tooth that because What i have learned. Since i watched it is that a lot of people find that very moving like like tears in their eyes and making connections to their own lives whereas on i watch my reaction to that was now. He's just being mean because he is making fun of people he's being mean but he's also kind of right making pointing out the commodification of grief. That has happened on social media. People don't all only share on social media. The good staff like most of that song is about. They also gopher clicks for the worst things that have ever happened in their life. And i don't like that. Yeah i find that creepy and weird. And yet i know also that people actually in real life derive tremendous amount of support and comfort from putting out the the worst things that have happened to them and getting the flight of love and sympathy and empathy. Back yeah yeah. It's it's an interesting tight rope walk and it's sometimes hard to tell when it's catharsis in one it's clout chasing and it's not necessarily always one or the other but i think part of the reason why people find it so touching is because the first few skits kind of train us to let go of empathy or or don't encourage empathy and it's kind of the first moment because bo is intentionally unlikable. I don't think he'd get offended by that. Yeah it's the first moment maybe sense facetime with my mom and even that's kind of so jokey it's hard to find that empathy Where you really like given space to just step into somebody else's us and feel for them even if they aren't perfect and they're varied obviously doing things you would do differently so yeah so the. The next song is unpaid intern. Which is one of those little song litz. Yes song right. It's a very sketch style. So he's like in a in black and white and he has these dark sunglasses and he's doing this kind of worker song but it's about being an unpaid intern. And he gets through the first bit. And he has his repeating. I'm an unpaid into or whatever. Unpaid intern And i'm not going to get any of the cords right for anything. We utterly tone deaf. Anyway he goes through that and then he kind of gets to the first point where you'd expect the song to start to repeat into the next verse and he just does this high pitched goofy scatting and then it cuts out like abruptly. Yeah and then he does a reaction video s to that and then he does a reaction to his reaction video and does he do one more yachts three layers of so reaction video inception. One thing that surprised me about listening to the album on spotify is that that's all that's just a song limit. That's it there is no more. I and i kinda thought..
"bo" Discussed on That's a Thing?!
"No i think part of it is that it is literally what by twitter feed. Looks like and so so because of that. I just like i will listen to my twitter feed. This is much catchier. The my twitter feed. And what is its besides being a critique of white ally ship it's also critique of neoliberalism. Yeah absolutely i kind of those together and a lot of ways and just sort of speaking to people who are guess. Centrists is the bow character and then soko is more radical and he gets an soko's obviously also more affected by the issues like bo. Bo is an outside observer of the issues and so he is able to like acknowledge and accept the emotions of somebody who's actually affected by them. Like i don't get emotional. Thing has been so many harmful to people trying to get help because as soon as you get emotional and the and that leads to people who aren't intimately affected by issues speaking on 'em instead of amplifying people who are more emotional about them. It's a whole thing i could. This could be a twitter feed. But we're not doing. We're not going to move on. Then there's the. I am a former comedian. Turn social brand consultant which is kind of a series of hits against once again the kind of neoliberal capitalism pink washing space where it's like. Oh yeah maltesers really cares about child poverty in malaysia..
"bo" Discussed on That's a Thing?!
"He planted seeds in this song that he calls back to later. The other thing that you only get if you watch the show at nod if you listen to that song on its own is. There is a moment where he's frustrated that his mum's put her thumb on the camera. And yeah gets like to upset about the frustration of trying to talk her through this tech his shoe. It's a bit of a a prelude to future tantrums. I think okay yeah. Let's that's fair. that's fair. Are you looking forward to holding your phone screen face. I had to talk you through thing imagining i'm looking for. I'm gonna deliberately be more incompetent. Technically than you're used to just so that you can have the excuse. I'm not even die. Good at text and only standing next to you. That i'm impressed. It's mean i. I've asked her lots of things but i i would actually argue. You understand more than me. It's just you forget how to do things constantly that i into it. Actually what our actual tech thing is that i. I am show impatient. That can't read instructions anymore. And if i would just slow down. I could figure that the sign in the background that says. You're a huge nerd from that lightness heaviness of how the world works is A more overtly political song hints of the political in comedy but how the world works is very explicitly complexly political. I'd say i would also call it the first true villain song. None of which there will be a couple of you could argue. That comedy is a villain song but because the kind of character that bo was portraying is so often the hero. I have a hard time. Classifying it as it only becomes a villain song within the context of the rest of the peace like retroactively on. So i i listen through how the world works is the first bill and song and It's in a lot of ways..
"bo" Discussed on That's a Thing?!
"Yes and we are not doing a normal episode right now. We're doing a bonus episode because we watched thing and we want to talk about it. That's right thank you some content. Yes that's not the last time you're going to hear it. Yeah so we watched inside together. I watched inside side. And then i'm like mom you should watch inside. And then we watched inside. And then i watched inside which has been a common viewing experience for people who watch inside as they continue to watch inside after typically clear. It's bo burnham colon inside yeah that's the title but also everybody just calls it inside because that's what makes sense inside is a sketch comedy. Musical netflix special created by and starring bobino Hour and a half lengths special was written and recorded by bo over the pandemic ear and hops between skits songs and moments of artistic and existential crisis. It's super light as as you can tell a fun. Watch sometimes sometimes yeah overall known. What did you think i thought it was a tour de force. I thought it was like amazing. Talent on display and I never would have watched it if you hadn't made me and i'm glad you did. It's always nice. I like when that's the outcome of. I make watch. Yeah this is your first. Foray into burnham's comedy right. Yes all of my knowledge of bo burnham up till now has been vicarious so i have heard people talk about how great eighth grade. The movie that he wrote was and i have heard people talk about his performance in promising young woman. And i have heard people talk about like his songs and his youtube presence and his stand up comedy but i have never consumed any of those people are because i only mostly consumed cultures through hearing people. Talk about podcasts shocking. You're so clearly. The target dan rather. So i've i've seen at least one of the of bose net flicks specials before i don't think it made a huge huge impact on me It it lasted in the meme culture at least Very very talented comedic musician. Which is a very difficult thing to be. So i'm always impressed by that Yeah so i kind of knew what to expect going into a totally unsure of what it would just be. I went to clarify your your connection with him. Did you know him as a youtuber. Did you watch him as an you know he was like on youtube. What i was just starting to watch youtube and it wasn't really overlapping at all I'm more familiar with him. Post net flicks specials and then he kind of fell off my radar when he quit doing live. Standup now. He's back on my radar because he did another netflix special. Right and everybody on my feed was talking about it so on your twitter feed and instagram. Okay yeah Lots of people very passionately discussing inside and their fifteen three watch of it. Wow one of the people who've been talking about it. A lot is Ms lola Who the general audience won't know but you are familiar with because we listened to lolita podcast. Okay by jamie loftus and miss. Lola is a youtuber who talked about lead. not podcast person is very into it. Okay there you go trust willing to that in the show. Yeah but yeah. Do you have any other general impressions. You wanna get out of the way before we get into the treacherous spoiler territory and tell people to stop listening because they won't understand what we're talking about anymore. Well maybe just like one more sidebar. On what do you mean by bo. burnham's presence in the meam culture. How does that manifest itself. Oh look I would say one of the more enduring songs..
"bo" Discussed on Now Try This
"Hit me too hard. And then he thinks about feeling like a bag of ship in like a bag of shit. I love that song the due to from like a bad guy she. Yeah it's it's so funny. How so much of it so well done and then at the same time just makes there's so many so much dumb humor so many silly jokes in it to you. Know he just gets comedy. It is incredible how one person could just get and then he just do another small bit called all time low but then the next big moment when he sings welcome to the internet. Welcome to the internet as like a fucking vaudevillian remind me of across the universe or something but it was like a circus. He kinda fuck it. Ringleader he kind of vibe like welcome to the internet. Welcome to the you know. It's incredible it's different than the rest of songs for sure everything all the time. Everything all of the time. It's just a commentary on how the internet is constantly trying to drive you in and has something there for everybody and there's no escaping in your constantly be on it all the time no matter what whether you like it or not and especially during the pandemic i mean. That's what the fuck else were redoing. People weren't going outside. People weren't doing anything. You couldn't go anywhere so all you had was the internet as both an escape end a prison. Yes wild i mean. There's an argument that it helped us during this time but it was also activate habit like wow like what if also during the pandemic the internet went away like with made us better or worse i think wars would have been started. I think if you take away porn from everyone at the same horn under the markets. I lost a lot of porn in the mansion. I think there would have been a lot of s. That would have been very easy moment to be like me to nick camaraderie instead of like. I imagined you did watch a lot of a thanks. Mark is Radio god i watched. I watched so much porn to man. What kind water. Water bottle tape porn is very is very nishi. It's like you're to leaders to leaders into a l. two leaders into a gallon. Yeah oh goodness and then we probably another great bop basis number two jeffrey. Oh scott fucking hit. What was hard. What was the what was the like. Are right buck in hunting. Looking like a bush swamp person out that he was like it was from amazon. Dot com. i've seen that so many times. it's from amazon. It's i it hot-seller. Every time i look for costumes. It is the first thing that comes up under costumes superman. That's exactly why he was wearing it. I am assuming that's why he was wearing again. Wow that's nice. That's real nice. Let's see that funny feeling. Yup that funny feeling with force Backdrop this song was Different than a lot of the other ones because it was a coup sticky because it was a little different yet but it was about like about like a disassociation right. Like what's really not and like him talking about you know. Somebody asked her in the chat. What you're doing look for costumes. I think they deserve an answer. Oh there's here's here's what. I'll do quick quick answer. Are you ready. Because i've been obese most of my life. I haven't been able to dress up as anything ever for halloween. And then ever since i lost weight a few years ago i want to dress up for halloween every year but every year i panic and stress out so much about that i never dress up and i still have dressed up for halloween in my adult life for anything so one year i will be brave enough to actually come up with the cost anybody's spend months beforehand searching for a costume. I feel the exact same way. I was really close to buy costumes this last halloween. But we're still in the pandemic and where to go to. Yeah i was really close to it and you know what i almost bumped almost bought a hike. Yocasta one of those trees good. Yeah yeah one and takes pictures. But i like that. No it would be funnier if you've got a red wagon. You're the top one. Let me get the short one. I'll be tolan i'm ready. We'll figure it out tomorrow. In haiku we should go play volleyball somewhere in our haiku gossip one hundred percent ellen. That'd be fun but yeah that's new to. This is his taylor swift song very very folklore. That the name of that album poker nonstop. But it's about he says it. It's about de realization and his depression. And i don't have you'll realization but i've heard of it i understand it. Do you realize asian or disassociation. The song's about dissociation. But in the song he says he liked calls to dr name was. What do you realization is. got it out. So it's kinda he's talking about but he's talking about not feeling real and not feeling like the world is a real thing. That's you know that's the type of depression that people deal with where everything. Yeah you know they get very auto body. It's i see what's going on the outside and nothing if they have trouble catching the world is real important in that way. And that's what that one is not something. I disassociate a lot. Have that problem and that is something. I'm going back to therapy to deal with. Now that i've dealt with other things i can deal with this because i can't attach to people or feel close to anybody. It's not a good feeling. And i hate it so i want to figure that out. So i get the dissociation part of it. Yeah good job markets from her. Did someone say volleyball. We did see volleyball. Go watch iq drum nine one four. And then you gave us in getting these costumes and you can join in the fun. Hell yeah. let's do it. Yeah and then the outburst we were talking about whether or not they're real or fake but amount but basically even if they're not real the doesn't matter the point is the reason with in. Here's to show what what does to you as you like creating measuring these moments as you know what what you're having to deal with contend with as you know you're creating doing all these things but then the next song is all eyes on me which yes yes. It's very good song. I love the way. It's films like beautiful lighting beautiful shots up close. I feel like this is where bo burnham shines right like we talked about his anxiety performing live and how a part of that ends up with people needing to feel like they are in control and when you have life things you just loose control right like you can't control everything because there's an audience that you can't control you know you might have to end up kicking someone out in the middle of your show or there's stuff that will go wrong technically or people backstage whatever the reason or you just feel off that day like there's so many aspects to it that i think would hinder the process but this whole thing being done at home. Digitally is hard and it. It is hard mentally on mental health. But it's also good. Because i feel like he gets to do all of this and create a masterpiece yet. In reminds me of specialty always ends at a big moment like this big song. That sounds like it could be a pop song on the radio so good. I would love that. I would love. Just we turn on the radio one day. I don't know who listens to radio anymore. But a bo burnham song which is on there. I was in a car. The election i had rented in. We were like listening to the radio and she was like connecting our phone. And i was like no no. Let's hear some of the radio. How ended up. Yeah we ended up on random spanish station house vibrant nice and then it was like we'll talking we listen to put it on something else. I'm like okay. Let's just playing reggae tone. Probably got its. It's all music now. It's fine to that debt. Do anything that if you and.

"Mike i don't know what the fuck you're talking about shit about that. But he's catch so office and my mother in law's house. No it's like fuck fuck you man. That's not comedy anymore. This is fucking comedy but they make a good point. They're making good points in the check that this is it perfectly captures twenty twenty in a way that i don't think anything else. Well i agree with you. I told you you're going to study this in school and classes. And they're going to talk about this for years and and it's self aware i think that's the i think that's the self-awareness is bo burnham. Spit right like that's always been his bit. He is like he literally. During one of his specialties. Like hey so appreciate this and this is crazy that i get to do this. Are i'm gonna go back into my persona. He's he likes. He's like in on the joke like you know he. I was going to say no. Go ahead no go ahead. I was gonna say eight. It's it's something that i feel like. I can relate to lot. And i don't know if you're the same way but when you are at just you're a t. l. which doesn't send for atlanta. Is the joke that he makes when you are. I'm low at all time. Low mentally and your mental health is just frayed and and and fragile. And it feels like you're going to go crazy because you just don't know what's going to happen next killing yourself and you just fucking. I don't know you've had it with the world yet. Sometimes i feel like that's when i'm my most creative and when my funniest and when i'm at my best you know and i feel like i see that indus i see that he's genuinely going through it but then it's also that like pain and suffering and anguish that pushes him to be better. Yeah well it's interesting right. Because that could not be the case right like he could have made this when he was at his sharpest in best. That's the thing. That's the thing about this that i kind of wish there was more dialogue about because a you know he is. He's not he hasn't really talked about it too much right now. He this special could one hundred percent be. We saw all of it. We saw him making the things but bo burnham's genius. He could have spent six months writing out a script for every single. Beat in this thing before he even filmed the goddamn every moment. Every accidental camera fall. That could a hundred percent a hundred percent on purpose or could one hundred percents seib us be seeing his anguish at the moment like halfway through the film he turns thirty. He is sitting there in the middle of the room with an alarm clock counting down the last two minutes of twenty nine th year. Marcus that is twenty nine year. I don't think so or did or is a real. Did he really film it. I don't know that's the thing. he agreed. What do that he would do that. And don't judging a looking at everything else and and analyzing it. He is so careful with what he chooses to show and how he chooses to show it that. I do think everything is planned to a t and that's how people with really bad things. I d work. I he things planned out. I need to kind of have set times for things. Because it stresses me out. When i don't have some kind of structure and know how everything's going to go beforehand so i imagine that he's similar in that way but also at the same time there's a moment's maybe a two quarters of the way through where he's talking about. He's talking about whether or not he's gonna finish it and he is in front of the clouds with his hoodie up and he's like trying to get out words and it takes them a couple of times. Is that real. Or there's time during one of the songs which i really related to what he started the song and he messed up really early adding talk and he just started again the markets. That's how i do my takes it home. I do that all the time. I'm like really hard to myself. And i'm sitting there like all right. Honda fuck already honda. Civics are coming. Your way next onto civics are coming in you know. Did he plan that. Or is there a real. I know but it's not the but also it doesn't matter it doesn't matter because if it was planned that makes more sense than if it wasn't planned because he's a comedy genius. He could've decided to leave things. Right like indiana. He's the one editing. He's the one figuring it out so he chose east still made an artistic choice to leave that stuff in and show us whatever he decides to show us all but also referred to just be that. I think actually emphasizes the fact that this is kind of organic or him being freshly Shaved saying oh. This is the last song. It's not that in yet and then immediately cut him to singing that same song fully bearded think he really might have film. That might have been footage of him filming the final song near the beginning. Because that's how right at the end and that just happened to be his like if you look at that thing. It's so. I mean he don't purpose but it looks so simple compared to now sliding wise. Yeah he really. That really could have been. I first rough cut tape. And then he turned it into art by dubbing over it with him fully bearded at the end of this whole experience and you see the juxtaposition. I some of it. I think it's i think it's probably i think that was real. I think some of it was real. I was like ninety ten. Maybe i i do think he seems so careful with everything that everything seems plan. But i think you're right about that point. I think that that part in parts like that. Maybe he had certain things planned in the end didn't have the whole thing planned but finish it up and put it together in a way. That was like perfect in like in the beginning when he's in talking at a himself in the mirror and he's like oh. This is my room. this is where. I'm filming an embark on this endeavor and he himself off. That could've been i don. I get what you're saying. That could have been planned in. That could have also not been planned. So i i hate to do. We will talk more about the special ended up itself. But i would hate to do a disservice to some of these really funny so the first like i think like real like funny songs. And it's weird because the comedy special super super didactic in its ability to be super self-referential and meta but then kind of bo burnham will still go into his normal comedy science his first song. That could be anywhere. He could have just released as music video bin space time with my mom yes do the pandemic innocence but then also could only stand on its own and it was honestly again energy genius song. As soon as the song started the aspect ratio changed to yes time screen at a phone and he sang a song about based on me with his mom. And it's so fucking relatable like you said like how is he saying the thing they were all thinking yeah marquette. How many times did you call your mom. During the pandemic hundred percent called her twice during the year and a half pandemics. She's she was doing great both times. Just kidding i also didn't talk to my mom that watch it was. I was so anxious about it. It was hard. I feel like my family also doesn't talk a lot but we did hang out with each other you know. I got proper mom time during the pandemic but it is is another relatable song. It's something that we all have had to go through the millions. Zoom calls didn't talk about. I also will appreciate this. That he didn't overstepped his bounds. S comedians. i feel like people tend to talk about things that they know are in the zych sonora popular but can't relate to right like if you try to tell me that a millionaire fucking median is going to talk about like what it's like to go to the office every day. It's disingenuous i i to me. You don't have that experience rates until the millionaire next time his mom. Yeah so exactly. So four bo burnham to come out with this song about how terrible zoom meetings are does it make any fucking sense to me but for him to talk about a face timing. His bob great cool. That's relatable we both done that. It gets hit the.

"Just it's just super interesting so i agree one hundred percent. It's this performance is artistic right in order. good comedian. You need to be able to empathize and understand what your audience is going through. And and tap into that right. That's what makes burnham a good creator because he's able to see himself talk about himself and then also create a connection with the audience and so by doing that. I mean that's why he is great at at comedy. And that's also why he's just a great khan a creator. In general remember the movie eighth grade we talked about that in another episode right so cringe. It's so many moments in just made you feel for the characters because o'byrne him someone who understands human condition and what it means to be a person in society today so there's so much talk about. We could talk about just the existential of this but there's many specifics that i feel like we need to get your interesting that we definitely need to get into it. So the whole the whole thing is almost a commentary on his last special right the one where he was having panic attacks of happy because the opening of this special and i'm sure you notice that same broom it's that same feeling. It's like his house behind his house. Like it's like a little kid her studio for his kind of yeah. I said you probably goes there. That's what it seems like by context clues because he does rent out just student he has now. He makes to these jokes about giving away his money to not have money. I know i was wondering what the space was because i was curious if he found himself and did everything ourselves than what is this house his house that he lives in. I think it is. I feel like it's has house behind his house like it's guest house or something. But anyway he starts off with his intro song and he starts. I honestly this the first song right away. The intro song is like such you opt for exactly what this thing is going to be because the first it's content is the name of the song and he does that. Great thing where he's just like sitting there in a chair where you see all the lights and everything. So it establishes you're going to see the backbone of this you're gonna see the you're going to see how he is making this rice and it says it up right away and he has this weird thing on his head and you're like what is this and then the puck and disco ball thing and i'm like yes. Oh you already showed me like. You're more of a genius. And i would ever be and this just started like it's scary. At how much of a genius. Bo burnham is and i i am alarmed by it someone could be so and so talented in so many different ways. I mean if you look at this this piece of work. It's cinematography is incredible. And the way that he uses lighting design in the way that he used certain shots and angles. He's he's pulling from like crafts. That require years in years of of of study and work and mastery all of them or at least presenting them in a way that they are like masterfully. Shot in done. And it's it's awesome. You know it's great to see. Such great lighting design a editing. Every single piece of this is done with your raft. Can't believe he did he he you could tell he's study and he like a key like he didn't nail that does golfing on the first try right. Like he's yeah off of that or he had an idea and e you know. It's funny. Because i feel like you're the same where you always have these funny ideas about things to do and you're like i'll try that sometime and he can't but you don't have time right no. He said he had the time to figure out. Like how lighting worked and how to listen to himself and how to like. But you're right. The lighting design specifically especially you who have come from lighting design background. You have designed lights for shows you know you get it more than the lamet In i i kind of appreciate it but like the things going on lighting again. We can talk days because that's a mode. Talent reoccur reoccurring jokes. He sets like so many things just with the lights. Every part of it is well so fucking. Well thought out right. I was watching it. And the darren pointed out that on the a c. The only time it's on during the whole show is during one scene and it's on sixty nine degrees like just as an extra little joke right. It's just so so. Many things are just so out. And i noticed that for in the beginning of of the special. There's a split second where you see the his twitch twitch his its interests like winners what this win an hour and thirteen minutes and forty one seconds left in the special i wrote down i saw. Oh no in. The beginning happened in the first. Five minutes of this getting should happen again at one thirty one. Oh really yeah no happens early on in the special in one the first few moments it's like on for a single frame and it's like what that's another thing to analyze and dig deep into. What is he trying to save that. Why is he saying that. These are the moments that are controlled by this other character that he's created it's so deep it's just deep for so many reasons every fucking part of it is just so fucking good and it makes me angry because forever brain as one of the greatest pieces of fucking content ever made speaking of content at the same time of doing all of those things in having an existential crisis having like mental acuity gymnastics. It's also got like silly songs right. Yes her song is first real song. Comedy is like a meta commentary whether he should even be doing comedy right now. Comedy over with. Can you leave the world better. He literally says like. Should i be joking at a time like this right. Because that's the oh my god fucking guy fucking genius berta mother fucking piece of shit. Hate that guy love him. He's beautiful and talented but like this is exactly the thing i'm talking about. He is saying thoughts. That we've all fucking had which seems like something. Every comedian should be able to do but they fucking don't how many times about watching comedy special..

"Like at least. This is how i always feel. I always feel like. I'm either on the brink of everything falling apart or i'm on the cusp of good things right. It never feels completely good in every appeals. You're you never cured of your mental issues so it always feels kind of like you're on the precipice so that feeling of being on the precipice and then the pandemic happening. It happened for so many people. I mean when you're when you're working through stop. It's it's constant work. It's constant struggle and it's always constant of this next one after this after this next week next month next year next year is going to be my near. Yeah actually. I'm going to focus on this next year. So i can't imagine how many people myself included in that in toward twenty twenty. We were sitting there and it was like okay. Okay this is gonna be. This is going to be what's happening. And then the world shuts down. But i like like bo burnham in a way that it is relatable that we all got second side we have to figure out what we're gonna do in and course correct our entire distance. A lot of people made the most of it too. And i feel like bo. Burnham is one of those people that definitely had had the opportunity to sit down and really unfortunately or fortunately for us sit and reflect and look at himself figure out who he was the person and what everything means to him. And what's going on in the world right so interesting. Yeah because what you just said. I think is super. I know if it's most people. I don't know the statistics. But i do know that when you do look at us. Ticks of people who faced unemployment during the pandemic and now a lot of markets are having trouble bringing people back to work and the right wing would. Have you believe that people are lazy and just want to collect checks but when you look at the statistics there are states. That took away the extra unemployment and their problems didn't get better because with a year all these people for the first time in their lives. Most of them to lack right. We got a chance to reflect it who we were. What was important. I'll we wanted to spend our time. Yeah in bo. Burnham is the same way and he decided to spend his time making us laugh. And you also. I feel like we could talk about ourselves for quick sec. Entered the pattern. You talk about me. You could talk about you. But moss way man you like you put your you put an effort. You quit your job. You changed your life. You're putting you in in harm's way and and you you you made a change and that was incredibly hard to do because burnham talks about it in this special that waking up and deciding to put on your shoes in gret dressed during the pandemic was a hard thing to fucking. Do i really that depression. I related that so much. I lost eighty pounds over the pandemic completely changed my lifestyle and my life learned how to cook. Quit my job realize that i need to perform it now and here i time saying it on the podcast. I just had an audition. And i landed your boys going to be performing off broadway improv. I'm gonna be doing comedy so like pandemic didn't thank you if the pandemic didn't happen if i didn't have time to reflect on what was going on i wouldn't be here. I wouldn't be healthy. I wouldn't be happy. I wouldn't be performing again. I wouldn't be doing those things. So you're you're completely right and it's funny that you said the pants thing because one of the ways that i kept my mental acuity during the pandemic was i gave myself small victories every day during the pandemic i was one of the few people i put on jeans or pants every single day. I didn't walk around in shorts. I did not walk around. In sweats. I was like i need to wake up and shower. Anita put on pants start my day as a chance to just completed everything. What about you how. How was your how is it. How is how were you doing before during and after now you don't have to get into depth by what your mental illnesses are or how it affected you can but i do wanna know how you were before during and after sure before we get into what the specialist. Because that's what the special is right. One hundred percent the special enemies talking about these things reflecting your self respecting on your own to health. And it's about our funding. Yeah specifically but also the ways in which he is a relatable person and so as someone who has dealt with mental health issues my whole life. I've a- pandemic. Wasn't that bad for me like i feel lucky. I really had more freedom than i've ever had. Because i feel like. I've i'm stuck in this corporate chain and i'm having to to go to work do this and spend so much time and energy on projects that i honestly don't give two shits about and when i was working from home i got to relax and i got to spend time with my girlfriend who. I was happy to be spending time with and watch tv. While i'm working and cook more. And i would go on runs on my lunch break. Because i i at home and i can change quickly and shower and i trained for marathon ran the marathon and did really well and i just so many things but i put you on blast about it. Sure like i was in a bad place in the pandemic. Let me go to a good place. You were in a good place when the pandemic started because the work you had done the two or three years before that marcus. You also lost an incredible amount of weight. Change your life. You added at least two decades to your life. You had done this. You're seriously you have done that. You went to therapy. Started working on your issues. You self-afflicted reflected instead. I'm not happy. And i would like to be an you started to do the work. That's what the special is about right like that was able to turn the face at and for people like you were doing the work. You should be so fucking proud. Because marcus how could you could you the head of the pandemic i've years ago. Oh i would myself one hundred percent. I'm not laughing. Because i know you're serious. Yeah i am serious because of the work. You fucking yes. It is true it is true. I appreciate that. But that's the thing too. Because i feel like the the pandemic was so hard and everyone but in such a way that is relatable and have varied so greatly. But it's shared trauma that we all have now because we've all had to kind of deal with a major life change. It is to find us on anything that shared experience that we all have is. What makes his comedy special. So good right because it's this. It's this thing that people are having a hard time talking about and discussing. Comedians are joking about it in a way. That is entertaining right now. People want to ignore it. People want to forget about people. Don't handle it. most people can't figure it out. They can try but they can't figure it out. Most people can't figure out how to navigate a compensation regarding covid end and all that stuff especially since there's so much like political shit around it too. I feel like the only person i've seen even remotely well as chapelle did a little bit. When he was like like he had that whole diatribe for five minutes where he wasn't even fucking trying to be funny and he wasn't really funny just talking about. Did you see that. He was at a light comedy show and it was comedy show and he would just like look. I'm just gonna talk for like a couple of minutes. Talked about what was going on and it would just like super like it was like this right. I would totally put dave chapelle dave shabazz one of the best comedians ever. Maybe the best. That's currently alive. I'm not saying bo burnham and him are the same. But i am saying they both have that thing of self actualization about their comedy right like they know what it means. They know their purpose in it. And they know like bo burnham he made the special because she needed it and he needed to share it. And that's what art is so it's it's.

"Hey that's great i'll try. I'll find a way. I can pick your brain about designing for the superhero world. Which you did obviously for batman is it. Do you kinda have to walk a fine line in the sense of not making things too drastic so that it takes you away from reality a little bit even you kind of have to suspend it a little bit when you watch those fast. You've asked an interesting question. And it is always a balance of you. Know reality and fantasy and paul My ideas to just whatever you do it that it's grounded in reality that it's that it has weight depth texture and gravitas. Whatever it is you damn and and it's always taken seriously as if this really is happening. Yeah exactly yeah exactly but then again you. Sometimes you're restricted but with series of unfortunate events and men in black films. There's room to play a little bit you don't it doesn't have to be as strict. Which is that's the fun part of your job problem Yeah i would say so. I'm not. I'm not making documentaries. I'm not making documentaries. And i like things to have a theatrical flair. We are actually. You know theater. And i'm in my i'm in the business of i'm in the entertainment business so i have to entertain myself and hopefully the audience goes along with it. Yeah if you don't have the design then that's that's half the battle right there. Frankly you love it love to love it. yeah i do. I really wanna thank you for taking the time It's been an absolute pleasure. As i said i'm a huge fan of your work and i mean that man was in great hands. Batman was in great hands. And i've enjoyed all the. I beat films and what you've done and i didn't do this. Ratio yes yes. I knew that i knew that. Yeah but you know they. They looked like they kinda borrowed some on and and Yeah and i look forward to seeing myself because you know. I'm so close to the material. I'll be curious curious the Absolutely i just kinda thought three. That was a great way to kind of put it to bed. But you know i agree. He found a new wrinkle up with a new wrinkle.
