Democrat Melanie Stansbury Wins US House Race in New Mexico
"When president biden name deb holland to be. Us secretary of the interior. She made history as the first native. American cabinet secretary in us history. She also less historically created an open seat in congress and tonight is the special election to replace her now. Republicans desperately want to pick up a seat in the house. Democrats desperately do not want to lose one. Because of how small the democratic majority already is the house of representatives but polls have closed now in new mexico's first congressional districts. Let's check in with steve kornacki to see what we know. Hey steve hey rachel will we know a lot and this happened in just the last five minutes. What you're looking at on the screen. It's elaine slide here and it's significant because i think the question right now has shifted. Who is going to win this race but to how much the democrats are going to win this race by. Let me take you through. What just happened in the last few minutes. You see melanie stains. She's a democrat mark morris. He's the republican. You see a two to one edge here for stains barry. Essentially what just happened. Is we got the early. Vote slash the absentee vote. You'll mail in ballots and also the vote that was cast early in this election. That's a huge huge chunk of it. We got it from the big giant county that makes up the overwhelming bulk of this district. We knew the democrat was going to do well with this big chunk that just came in. We didn't expect necessarily it would be this well for the democrats so a thirty two point advantage here for stands berry with that. That's certainly exceeds. What the democrats did with the early absentee vote in. Bernallio county. That's albuquerque back in november. It certainly puts stands berry on course to win this by a decisive. And this is where margin. I think becomes key because i think that's the storyline that everybody's looking to in this district. It wasn't necessarily. Which party would win but with the democrats win by a convincing

With ‘The Underground Railroad,’ Barry Jenkins looks squarely at Black trauma
"Underground railroad was a network of abolitionists routes to free slaves. But what if it was an actual railroad with a train chugging toward freedom? That's the premise of Colson Whitehead's Pulitzer Prize winning novel, now adapted by Barry Jenkins into a 10 episode miniseries. This isn't a straightforward, inspirational narrative like Harriet. This combines the brutality of roots with the social commentary of watchman and a hint of magical realism like the Polaroids. Press to some ADO is empathetic as the lead Joe Edger tennis sinister as the villain, slave catcher and child star chased Dillon is his precocious psychic. I still have eight episodes to go. But judging by the first two were in for a powerful train ride by a master conductor. I'm Toby Toby film critic Jason Fraley, giving the underground railroad for five stars. So far, dolphin
‘The Underground Railroad’: Barry Jenkins’ Journey Into American Darkness
"Was certainly excited. To see the underground railroad josh least be couple episodes. I was able to fit in this week for this discussion. Because as you know. We're both big barry jenkins fans on the show. Moonlight was in my top five year. It came out of beale street. Could talk was my number one film of its year twenty eighteen but i have to confess i was also reading it a bit just based on the title just based on what i suspected the subject matter would be. There's that element of brutality. That i imagine would be part of this show but i was less worried about that and really more focused on the toil of watching people emotionally suffer and suffering along with them. And that's certainly something we've come to expect from berry jenkins work and then you said something last week on the show josh. I think you'd already caught up with an episode or two. The gave me hope. You said it's not really what you think. It will be or something to that effect and i thought okay. Maybe i'm in for a big surprise here and maybe it will be a relatively pleasurable watch. And then when. I admitted to you today in our slack that i was going to have to binge these two episodes just prior to recording. You said binging may be harmful to mental health. And i knew that. I was in for an experience.
'The Underground Railroad’: Oscar Winner Barry Jenkins Returns With Limited Series
"Miniseries adaptation of the Colson Whitehead novel, The Underground Railroad premieres on Amazon Prime Both the book and the Serie Center around Cora and enslaved woman who escapes from a plantation in Georgia and travels through a literal underground train system in search of freedom. And while the series does depict the traumatic reality of slavery, early reviews have lauded it for not sensationalizing the violence shown on screen as well as for emphasizing the humanity of the enslaved characters. Much of the project success can be credited to Barry Jenkins Theosophy are winning filmmaker behind Moonlight and If Beale Street could talk here he is on the take away back in 2018 talking about his plans for the underground railroad. Most clearly I can say about it is, you know the hero's journey, and I remember as a kid, you know, hearing about the underground railroad for the first time and really literally imagining to two trains. Running underground. And so I think that reading Coulson's book kind of reactivated the childhood kind of off, you know, around just like the power the ingenuity, you know of black folks to create this path to freedom, and I thought the best way to tell that was to go on the four hero's journey. So I was really happy to partner with Amazon and find a place where we could tell the story on the course of 89 10 hours.

More about barry morrow when we start talking about the impact of the of the film had on this subject matter Stars of course. Dustin hoffman as raymond ray babbitt and it stars. Tom cruise is his brother. Charlie and also val area go lino. Who i'd only known as the hot funny girl from hotshots and hotshots part do as a remember her from them. She's actually. she's playing italian in this movie. So gotcha and i wondered if like what happened to her because she was in these big movies in the eighties and i looked through her Like imdb and some does just one thing after another match kept trying to work on both sides of the pond and one contract would interfere with another contract and then that would fall through and that was delayed and she liked it. Seemed like ten years relied. Click by and so. It's a shame in a lot of big movies like the. I'm not saying this was a big movie. But she went to rainman right after big top pee wee which you know not the best. But she's in like you said she was in leaving las vegas. She was in escape from la. She was leaving las vegas. Apparently playing someone named terry jesus. We just saw that movie. And i did not. I didn't did not really must've been a minor role
Silicone: Should We Be Scared?
"Had someone damn me about a shampoo that i said. I'm going to try this out. That has silicon in it just behalf. I was like be careful. Like a scorpion. Sorry silicon let's talk about.

So you've got pot holes in your hair strand and it would be nice to drive down if you were driving but still can goes in and fill in those potholes and makes the hair shaft look nice uniform and shiny and most of us wanted us shampoo and conditioner to make our hair shiny. The argument is it's not actually making your hey healthy it's making it look and feel healthy which i kind of understand because again another analogy. It's kind of like a barrier cream skin without trading it under the barry. Exactly so what you would be doing. I guess the barry kramer's you've got all your delicious nourishing serums underneath. But then you you barry cream on top so i guess the argument is it's kind of creating this karting and other stuff con gideon. That doesn't bother me so much because it's not like i'm trying to fade a live organism. I just want it to look and feel shiny and not be naughty when i'm trying to brush it when it's wit which silicon

You're very cold or you don't enough food or the kind of food that you'd really like an maybe you were wishing you're actually home. Does that discomfort ever distract you from your larger your larger goals. The ideas that you've been telling us about. Are you always open to keep in touch with the larger meaning for you know.

The worst place to make decisions is on a set. You want a director that in pre production designed to all the shots. Makes Decisions and here's something you never WanNa. Hear from a director. I don't care whatever you WANNA do. You know if when the guy comes to you and says I got a red folder and green folder. Which one you want, boss. You don't the prop guy as wanted. Directed the say I. It doesn't matter you choose one, even though you don't care as a director, you have to make every decision, so you go the red one, and then on the set that day you go. Oh, Jesus I. Put that woman in a red dress and now i. don't see the folder, and then you go to the prop guide you go. Hey, remember when I said red folder and he goes. Yeah. I got the took out the green when you wanted sir, you wanted Sir by the way. Sir Is crew code for Asshole. And would you like to camera back world? We originally hadn't sir. Even good morning sir.

Just as smile and say I. Don't mean anything well. Yes, I do, but. We'll do another one down the line when all the. When it's all that I've been in so many near death experiences that I kind of wonder, if maybe I did die and just transfer now I'm living like their lives have nine cats may be I have fifty or seventy. Trillion Barry's out there because. One thing that is in the new book is I, and this will surprise Gilbert. I was I went to race car driving school, and I was in a rates, an actual open, wheeled race car and I I flipped the car car flipped multiple times in the sand, so the Robart and protect me. They had to stop the race of the other race car. Drivers could lift the car off of my head. Had I not die? I've I've killed. I've killed more elk than most hunters exclusively using various cars I've owned I killed three Alcatel. Your IDA killed the deer. In East Hampton that I killed an elk in. North Platte Nebraska, doing eighty miles an hour on interstate at. Eighty so I just wonder. If in all these cases I died and then just moved over to another multi verse I suspect not, but you never know. What do you think you'll? Think as possible, other Gilbert Gottfried occupy other universes who are much cooler than I am. Now now that's the that's the unfortunate thing, Gilbert. They're all exactly like you. Barry we got to ask you about some great character actors that we love because we. We've done three hundred of these things. We love character actors. We want to ask you about Hackman from. Get Shorty, but also the Great Dennis Farina. Yes, yeah, Babe. Hurry no Farina had. Have you guys? Did you guys have our meet him? We didn't get him now. No met him with the Friars Club wants, but we didn't have him on the show unfortunate yeah. Farina is perfection. Talk about someone who is hilarious comedies by not playing funny yes. In both midnight midnight run. Am I trying to Warren number? fucking moron number one number two. He was in both. Get Shorty for me and he was brilliant and he was also in. Another movie directed called big trouble that he's extraordinarily brilliant in the nicest guy and you know. He was a cop, a Chicago Cop. For Twenty years feed hippies up at the sixty eight convention and and he spends every. He spent every summer in Chicago in every winter in Scottsdale Arizona and I said Dennis when you go back to Chicago. Do you hang out with all your cop friends when you go back to Chicago when he goes? Back both might friends who are on the other side meaning gangsters. And I just love that he was so in fact I asked him how many hippies he beat up at the Chicago Convention and all that he said you. Barry I want you to like me. I'm not gonNA tell you. He was quite a Chicago Cop. That was so funny because he wasn't trying to be funny and you. You mentioned. Hackman, and we had a table read. We're trying to get a studio to make get shorty known would make it, Danny Devito who was producing it and was going to start. It was wondering if it was ever going to get made till we had a table read and at the table read, we had gene Hackman and Dennis Farina and other actors, playing other roles Danny played the role eventually played by. Travolta. Lesley Ann. Warren. Play the role that Rene Russo. Got End. But after the table read, I went up to gene Hackman who played his role in, said Jean I just gotTa say you were so fantastic. You're so funny and gene said what the fuck are you talking about? And I said well. You just sell funny and he said I'm not a comedian. I said Yeah, that's why you were so funny and he said well I. Don't have a fucking clue, white humane, but thanks a lot of any left. We hired him. To. Be In the movie and I remember Jean Calling me up I finishing men in black, and we were also about to start pre production. River sorry, we I was finished. Some movie gene called me up and said listen I'm thinking about growing a goatee because I think my character is characters. Name was Harry them. Saints he's an artist, and even though he's not I think he would have a goatee and. I said. Is there a movie you've had to go? T- and so I can look didn't see what you look like, and he goes no I. Just thought I'd try it. And I said well. Why don't you grow the goatee? And if if we if it doesn't look great, we just before we shoot will just get rid of it because. I'M NOT GONNA fucking waste nighttime growing go. If you'RE NOT GONNA. Use it and I said. You mean like waste your time by not shaving. And he said Fuck that Shit I said no gene. Okay, all right. Yes, I love it and will use it and I figured if I hated it. I would deal with it down the road, but she was a handful. But a brilliant actor just very. Very self loathing and very angry interest by fantastic. Fantastic in the in the show and Always fantastic he that went on, you realized he can be funny without being funny, he then went on to work with Mike Nickel bird cage. Right which again. Played play, he doesn't play comedy funny, which is Great, you remember Gilbert..

"On. Yes, well. Come on at like three in the morning when you say come. Actually. Legit by then barry she was, she was a cable access host. That's right along with ugly George. Gilbert you know who you your left or reminds me so much of junk? Husak and I'll tell you what I said to Joan Joan has the same sort of barking loud wonderful laugh that you did then I said to Joan some man because of your laugh is GonNa? Fall in love with you and Mary. You think you're so adorable. Until years later, it said same laugh that makes him think I've gotta get a divorce. So I'm just. How have you guys been married? He's going to ask her yeah. No. He doesn't know. Thirteen years thirteen years. You get aware that tie. Off! Out. I'm guessing you've got five more years, Gilbert. We've been together watt. One twenty three years. But hand she then she got pregnant and you had to get married. No answer she. Gave in. She. She fell in love with him. Barry when she saw him eating out of someone else's plate at a party. That's so Gilbert. Since you brought up junk, Cusak I wanNA bring up Addams, family values which my wife and I. Watched last night. And you know she? She is first of all so many things about that. I mean I mean Paul Rudnick, and this is about Ba- welches working and marsh Ayman's music so many things going for it, but I heard you on with Alec Baldwin. Talking about how one of the was brilliant things about her in that movie is how quickly she goes from. Grief when she's in the Karachi preparing her story of trying to bump off, fester. She goes to that signature. CACKLE that you're talking about. She is just magnificent and underrated. If that's possible, yeah, now she's amazing, and and that shot you know. She said a bomb to blow up faster, and so we're on a close up of her and off camera. There's this huge explosion and a hubcap. A piece though some sort of piece of Land in the foreground. Yeah! I, I used a hub grech cap a sound Go Goldberg Pryke can give us a good hubcaps down, but in any case I'm. In the shot she goes from sweeping a cackling without any cut awayes edits brilliant bat, slow acting change within the same shot I think. Not Get technical, but I think that really good comedies play out. The comedy plays out without cutting. You know hate cutting to a close up for punch, punchline or jokes. I love for the audience to find where the comedy is and to see it play out, and that's a perfect example that who does no cut away. It plays out in one continuous shot. Another example is in the first men in black. You see Tabulate Jones. Interrogating an Alien Wills First Day and in the background will is have having help an alien mother. Give birth. And you see Tommy getting great, this alien and in the background will is being thrown up and down in the tentacle grabs him, and he goes into car out a car, and it is bumping on the roof, but there's no cut away I. Don't cut to a close up of well being funny I. Don't cut. It's all in this master shot, which is way great comedies. Directed by Preston, sturges Howard Hawks played out in these wonderful to comedy two shots so. I'm really proud of. Doing that and I love Jones, performance in that movie so brilliant so yeah. You also believe that comedy. Is Thinking about that shot in in men in black by the way if if you had cut to the close up, then you, you leave the joke, which is the Tommy The K. is ignoring everything that's going on behind you. That's right. That's right, you'd. You'd lose that. You'd lose that moment. You'd lose almost the point of view of it. And also, if you cut to well being funny while you're saying is I. Don't trust the audience to find out where the comedy is. I love to the audience to think they're smarter than director, and and to for them to find the comedy instead of me. It's like explaining a joke. Cutting to a close up of a punchline is just like explaining a joke. which is you know you've lost the game? If you have to explain the door we've we've talked about this. How you hate you hate them. Music tells the audience holiday. Comedy Music. Comedy scenes going on. It's like. Up. Avant Papa and right. It's telling you comedies happening here. You know it's funny and I you know. The first half of the book is more about my childhood and Washington heights and things like Punchbowl, and all that in the second half is more about. Mike Career in the movie business, but one of the things I talk about is what you do a comedy when you direct the comedy, you don't want anyone on the show to know you're doing a comedy and I say if the composer knows will be slide whistles and they'll be triangles. After Wardrobe, person knows everything will be colorful if the. Lab knows everything will be bright, and the worst is if the actors working in the comedy. I remember I. Did a movie called big trouble and I tom sizemore was in Hugh. He played opposite Johnny. Knoxville and when I hired Sizemore I said all right. I'm GonNa, hire you under two conditions one is. You're never allowed to hit me. And he agreed he said Okay never hit you. And then He. Said and you have to do everything I tell you to do. You cannot be in a comedy. You just play the reality the Raleigh said got it, and then the first day he came in with a twitch, and yet a lamp, and hold them into my campaign I said Hey sizemore I called him sizemore apt to fire you. He said why I said you're trying to be funny. And he said it's a comedy I, said no, it isn't let the audience decide. It's a comedy. You just play the scene for the reality of the scene. If the scene is stupid, you'll be stupid, but don't play stupid and And then he got good whenever Johnny not came up with something funny. He then in the next tate stolen because he was really of Knoxville, let me tell you a quick Knoxville that you know that I was on Yoga. You'll love this because i. feel you like really scatalogical stuff I was on. Yeah I was on a jackass. Do Tell. I. N Johnny! Knoxville said it was the most disgusting thing in the history of Jackass just you know. I had a black head on the right side, right? Chris of my knows that have given five or six years of not you know squeezing it. I could build up internally a lot of pus, and I said you, Johnny, I can swig out about.

Sure, well as we now know, the name of the book is called Buried Son, it felt call your mother. A lot of people think it's called just called. Call your mother, but because on the book jacket different color for Barry Sonnenfeld so i. I it's confusing, but in any case. in early, nineteen, seventy I was seventeen years old, and I was at Madison Square Garden with my girlfriend I was a senior in high school. And it was two twenty in the morning, and we were at the first piece concert. you know There were a Jimi Hendrix said Peter Paul and Mary and the cast of hair all these. People in Nineteen, thousand six hundred people in the audience and a to twenty in the morning while Jimi Hendrix was warming up. Over the PA system came the following announcement. Barry, Sonnenfeld, call your mother. so. That where the title comes from. Of course I assume that my father had died. Because how else could someone convince anyone at the garden to get through all the layers of people to get to the announcer gardner who would be willing to make that announcement quite a fake, but By! The time I got to pay I was leaping uncontrollably. I assumed my father was dead by mother assumed I was dead, because I was supposed to be home it too, and it was now to twenty. overprotective, you think. You said somewhere in an interview that you think you may have played a small role in Jimi hendrix depth. Doubt. Be My mother Oh. Yeah. He died a few months later, and he disbanded the last performance he gave, he disbanded the group. He gave an audience a interview to Rolling Stone magazine, saying it was a perfect ending to his relationship with his band franking up at Madison Square Garden so yeah. I think my mom may have killed Jimi Hendrix. And to make the story, even more embarrassing. Wasn't the audience chanting. Well Yeah, you know.

"Have any regrets about becoming a director as opposed to just a camera man you know. I have no regrets. I really I really now which I didn't has cinema Taga for I. Now love actors. Yeah I just love being around them. I love what they do. I so appreciate what they do I made the mistake for three years. I was his show runner on a series of unfortunate events and I put myself in every episode as a painting. Yeah you know And I thought that was a great idea until there was a flashback scene that I was a painting of of Alpha watered 's husband. Yeah and now. There's a flashback with her and so I actually had to act in this because I never saw. When I was a painting that you're later we would writer into him into the and I was so bad. And it's so weird 'cause I know what I want from actors talk fast and don't hit the joke and just be the situation so an hour freezing. The worry batted honey. Though are just say the lines. A and I my wife. My daughter in the video assist guy were behind a wall whenever I got the line out properly. They like he yes but I was but my point is now. I love actors. Am I love being director? I love being a television showrunner. Because then you're even more in charge of everything your sure cell and I always tell my daughter. She should be a director coaches highly opinionated and knows what she wants but she said you know at that. I I watched you for the last twenty six years on said to end. It seems to stressful not interested by. I'd love directing and I didn't think I would is there. How what would you say from that? I from from that first. Addams family movie to now like how all of you evolved as a director. What's the biggest change between that berry and buried that directs today? Well Barry in many ways I'm the same director but I'll tell you what I learned on Addams family I learned from two people one is from Scott Rudin and West. Guy taught me is that everyone's afraid every studio is afraid every everyone's afraid and if you're not afraid and just say I want this you'll get it because everyone's too afraid so Scott would always say if I can't get Maggie Smith. I'm not doing this movie. And and any normal personal and say really Scott. You're really not GonNa do the movie if you can have Maggie Smith in this one scene where she's a receptionist for one day of shooting. Yeah got you don't but instead they go. Okay okay. You can have Maggie Smith and the other thing I learned was from the editor Dede Allen who not only addams family but you know all the Arthur he cut Serpico and add a wet suit with Atika. You know with a dog day afternoon dog day afternoon and Bonnie and Clyde and read that sometimes when your third act is not working. Don't touch the third act touch the second act. I really learned. How fluid film is that how you can manipulate it? And I remember saying the deedee is it. Should we lose. This scene is about five months into cutting. Dd said Yeah. And I said how many months have you known that. And she said Oh three I said why. Didn't you say anything? She said just like a good psychiatrist. She said you needed to discover when you didn't need the scene while and and it's so I learnt that if a scene can be taken out of the movie and the movie still works. It should be in the movie. I it's so brutal. It's such a brutal truth and it's such you don't want to eat because it's the same thing. I mean on a smaller level like when we do comedy bits a rider thinks of it. A writer writes it. Produces it gets props makes props and costumes makes costumes. And then it just kind of doesn't it's not great and you just kind of it seems so brutal to go now now. But it's the the life of the entire organism that really matters. You know. Yeah totally agree. Yeah yeah now. What made you want to write the book at this point? And part of his Jerry Seinfeld. Really Jerry is our neighbor here in telluride and he and his wife and his kids come up about two weeks a year. You know over Christmas new years and he. This is years ago and he had heard You know they come up watch a academy screeners and I have a great screening room. You know it's great sub woofers and so we heard horror stories about directing men in black three and how he didn't have script no producers. Weren't supporting me in the Studio Watson. Supporting me came up on Christmas Day and said you know what you should become a standup really. And he said you would love. Stand up because you're totally in charge. You fail or succeed based on your own work you. Your audience tells you what's working. What's not you try it again? You rewrite it. But there's no outside force saying put in the senior. Will Smith Drag and wild wild west or anything like that. You would love it. And I said aren't I like way too old to start my career in stand up and he said Oh. Yeah you're way too. Well it will never happen. You'll want make any money. I'm just saying you would like Jewish. Yeah you do an open mics. Hearing a lot of those but it made me think that it might be enjoyable to do something where I indeed wasn't being told what to do where I was in charge of everything and so I had written the Porno Chapter Twenty years ago for something to do. I just one week at written it so I ask. Sweetie to read the porn chapter and for me. There's nothing that makes me happy. Then Sing my wife laugh at. I'd standard dumb. It's joyful your children. Yep she was shaking the bed with laughter. So I said Okay I can right so I add jerry telling me do STANDUP UP. Sweetie read the script. And then a guy named David Grainger whose the editor in chief of Esquire magazine left esquire and for ten years. I wrote a column in Esquire every month. Hold the digital man where I reviewed iphones in. Gps navigation and I really enjoyed that. Grainger's said do you have a book? You and I said you know I might. And I gave him the point chapter and he said write me two more and we can sell it so I wrote a chapter called fear of flying about my plane crash at Van Nuys Airport in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine and also Barry Sonnenfeld. Call your mother chapter on page at Madison Square Garden and the title of the book. We went out with those three chapters to six New York publishing houses. They had never written anything. Didn't think I was a writer and all six said we want to buy the book six said only if you ride it and there's no ghost rider have a very specific voice and yes yes and certain ironic twist and so he picked has shed and I wrote this book and it got an amazingly great reviewing about the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. Wow and like. I'm so thrilled that any a yiddish papers have been calling me a certain Jewish things in it. Now I'm a writer and I love I could go to the typewriter and you're a writer. Yeah and I can. I could write forty pages a day in the buck was twice as long and just like. I think that movie shouldn't be longer than ninety minutes. Cut out half the chapters. That's a second book the second book. Yeah yeah the intention but yeah yeah I believe that if something can if the book can work without the Chapter get rid of it. Yeah it's like a movie. Yeah so so what's next for you? What's I mean what what do you? Where do you want to go from here? What are you not doing that you WANNA do? I was waiting for you to pretend you're gone and you've got to ask me if I was retired. I know I know I I can see the. I can see the saddle rascal in the back fat already. So that's not a retired man. Yeah I love. That phrase has saddle rascals genius. By the way I get a name played for well first of all. I'm friends with Rob Reiner you know I wrote. I shot both misery. And when Harry met Sally and rob and Warner Brothers. Television are in the ocean and they go with me to option my book allow. Because the I think there's a version of the book whether several. Barry's you know this young. Barry yes middle aged barry this older berry and how you learn why he wears to watches and has three and gets to the airport six hours too early. Because you cut the young Barry and has no electricity and his father stoves silver dollar collection to pay kind of. Addison warn so anyway. So there's that and I have several. I love being show runner. And if you ever have a chance to work for net flicks. That's what you WANNA be. They are the best you really are so I have several other. You know you always have projects in. They never come to fruition. And I've got someone writing as in some Option this but until it happens vocal I I will say that. I'm really excited. Because of the three years sweetie and I were in Vancouver. We got to become permanent residents of Canada. Oh Wow and we love Vancouver and I always try to get any show of working on to Vancouver so we can a live someplace. That isn't America at the moment and be someplace as kind of beautiful and and we love so so. It's a great town I've always. I've always loved whenever I've had to work up there and that's been that is like you might have had a steady GIG for eight or nine years now. Which is a blessing. I mean I'm not a religious person I don't know a bad word than a blessing but right but yeah that is one thing that I miss. Having Ned opportunity go just those field trip go work up there for an and you get to have the fantasy of. I live here even though you have right now exact and you do stand up ever do was. I never was a stand by is came from Improv. I I don't like I don't particularly like beyond stage by myself. I tried stand up for a while because it just seemed like Y- it's there and I know a lot of people like I know a lot of friends of mine that were improvisers and actors. Who at this point in their life they you know they can go out and make some money. You know they can. They can come up with half hour stand up and they can make some money. Maybe I should do that. And it was actually in the middle of hosting it at a sketch comedy festival in San Francisco. I was on stage hosting a night of Conan writers and stand up said had appeared on Conan and hosting a night stand ups and in the middle of my like ten fifteen minute opening. I realized I don't like this guy just stopped doing this. I I don't like saying the same thing over and over like a big things. I don't like saying the same thing over and over ride. I like to surprise myself and I like to surprise other people with you know the stuff that just occurs total sense. Yeah I I'm not like as an actor. I don't like to give people warning that I'm GonNa do something you know. When it's that that little spot where you're supposed improvise something or come up with a new joke. I don't Wanna I WANNA I wanna get you know even if they break. I think it's better..

Yeah it I do think that whatever I did I would be good at it and like if if I had to become a plumber would be saying well. Let's get Barry. He really the last time he he's great. Yeah or if I was a DJ or file is a long distance truck driver. I think I would. I would be responsible enough to be good at it. What do you attribute that to because I have a similar thing like if I do something? I'm going to do it well and I think somehow it is like this self sufficiency. That was instilled in me back kind of being expected to be an adult too young. Yeah I think it was a being only child. Yeah so I had to sort of create my own world be my father sort of being a salesman and often starting businesses in going into chapter eleven. I I just. He was always working seven days a week and And I think that I mean I think the best thing I could ever do is be a fedex driver. I would be the best I would find you. Say Andy. Listen. I heard you're going on vacation Joanna. Leave me your keys so I can drop the stuff at known. I would be the best at that so but to answer your question. I thought I wanted to be a photographer. But and my idol was his a photo. Journalist named Elliott Irwin. A and I eventually went to work for him by and I'm now married to the woman who is married to him when I met him.

"Yeah but the thing about back pain is if it comes and goes. Yeah that implies. It's not a physiological problem. You know yeah because some days it's bad some days it's not bad and you go. Why did I have no pain yesterday? Well that's because I wasn't talking to the studio this morning and they're stupid idea and suddenly I have back pain on men in black three. My back pain was so bad over Christmas vacation. I needed to hire new writer. The producers wouldn't let me. It was just a mass and I was on this conference call at I just screen at the end. You know what Dr Sarno says is the reason you have this back. Pain is your unconscious. Mind gives you the pain because you fear that if you express your anger you may really hurt someone that you love or you know. Lose Your Job. I screamed them. Hung up the phone and I was Dr Strangelove. At the end of that destroyed I stood up out of my share with no pain and I basically said mine fear. I can walk and I literally. All my pain went away all I needed to do scream at Sony pictures. And that's all the producers and that's that's all it took for until the next big problem well that that's the intro to my talk with Barry Sonnenfeld with the esteemed director and Producer and cinematographer. Bon vivant and rack on tour. With who we you. I worked out a movie. You hire been called big trouble. Which was a lot of fun to make a lot of nights shoots down in Miami and again an also playing golf with Patrick. Warburton hearing funny stories about him getting waxed because he needed to. There's a stripper scene at the end of that and he needed to get waxed and is the Aleve that for him to tell It involves an erection. Let's just say that but I I've worked with you as you're one of the most fun directors I've ever worked with Berry. You're just a really funny guy and I saw that you have a book coming out and I thought well. Here's a good excuse to get you on here and to talk about this. And and the name of the book is Barry Sonnenfeld. Call your mother yes and that I knew exactly what that was from because I was onset and it was late. It's like three o'clock in the morning and I was telling a story about my mom and just kind of said like you know for comedic effect. I said something like that for something and somebody who's like you can't talk about your mother and you said no no. Let him say whatever he wants. You told the story about where the title comes from which go ahead and let them hear that. Well the title the Buck Barry Center call. Your mother is because on April as April. Twenty eighth was becoming April twenty ninth. I'm sorry January twentieth becoming January Twenty Nine at two twenty in the morning and that's very important over the PA which year this is nineteen seventy. I always seventeen years old. I was a senior music and art high school. I was with my girlfriend. We were at the Madison Square Garden. Peace concert with like Harry Belafonte. And you know Peter Paul and Mary and and Jimi Hendrix of all people and he had left the stage earlier because he wasn't feeling the vibe. Now he's back. It's two twenty in the morning. He's tuning up as guitarist whispering to various members of his band and as he gets ready to play his first cord over the PA system comes e announcement. Barry Sonnenfeld call your mother so a. How amazing is it that my mother? I say she had straight through. Weakness was able to get someone to answer the phone. Yes and get someone to say. I'll connect you with the PA guy. Yes then someone to say okay. We'll make the announcement. Yes and his incredibly in order to do that. One can only imagine the lawyering that went on in that conversation the weeping yes the lawyering the weeping the so so of course. I know that the only reason this could ever happen is that my father was dead right so a stand up announcing to the garden that I am Barry Sonnenfeld so it starts in the cheap blue seeds.

"People put a saddle on it so I've got a joystick and the thing would do you know like fourteen miles an hour so now I raise up to the actors and go one of you is very good and also you know. Director chairs are very uncomfortable. They're they're bad for your back but with a saddle you sit up straight. I wear a cowboy hat and a tie and boy do I get respect. Everybody does their own thing. Scott wore a suit SAM. Raimi's Ramey wears a suit your cowboy in the saddle but I believe Sam is unfortunately and I know Sam but you should check this out. I believe he's a trump supporter. That can't be I I will put money on it. Are you being serious? Makes you think less of evil dead now doesn't it? Yeah okay well. Let's go get the car. There's an trump supporters. I'm pretty sure about that. And obviously that collaboration even before you were director so out of your films could school at the time I believe right now. Oh you're out by Tommy Mitchell. We had nothing to do with film school together undergraduate and graduate. Got It so from what I gather. You met Joel. Coen at a party at a party. You guys end up collaborating on blood. Simple right an amazing piece of work. That's their first film and by all counts your first time on films. That was literally being the first time so who was taking a bigger shot on. Who Was it the cones taking a shot on you or are you taking shot on them or was it equal opportunity. We didn't know it was really opportunity. You know we were at this party. Everyone there was from dairy and Connecticut. Except Joel and me we Jews from the opposite side of the room sniffed each other out. We started to talk the movie and American friend by them. Vendors had just come out. Rubbing Mueller was. The cameraman did a phenomenal job. We were talking and he said Jell said my brother. Ethan and I just wrote this script blood simple and we're going to shoot a trailer like it's a Finnish movie and use that to get dentists and doctors and all that to to invest. 'cause a dentist can't read a script and say. Oh this is great and also Joe Nathan had never done anything so no one's going to say. Oh Yeah I trust you guys but was a trailer you can look at it and say. I'd go see that movie so Joe said we're GONNA shoot this trailer and I said well. I ONA US sixteen millimeter camera. And he said you're hired to shoot trailer not the features but we went out. We shot the trailer over several days. There are no actors in it just feed and bodies and bullet holes and all that it turned out great and a year later. We Raises Joel actually went to Minneapolis and got the Haddassah List. So he was seeing rich. Jewish women while Ethan and I were seeing doctors and dentists in New York. We apprentice of the trailer and literally the first say on the set of blood. Simple was the first say Joel Ethan and I had ever been on a movie set. I had the camera assists and come over the night before the show me where the on off switch was on thirty five millimeter camera but we all took chances together but we all took real had a very similar notion of that. We wanted to be very stylized and I think one thing I sort of help them with is. I'm an only child of Jewish persuasion. I wish I could be handsome and an actor but I'm not but I still wanted everyone to know that I was in the movie and if you look at the body of my work I'm saying that would quotes because it sounds pretentious The camera is more than a recording device. Whether it's blood simple raising Arizona throw momma from the train addams family. The camera sort of grabs the audience. And says I'm in charge here. Follow me I'm GonNa do weird things you know in blood simply do that shower where we track over the bar but does it drunk asleep under bar so we just boom up over the bar and back down again exponentially then next raising Arizona. Then you really kind of go for broke. It's I mean like wh Nick Cage. What did he say? He was like Channel Nine looney tunes cartoon character out or something. I mean yeah. Has that kind of manic energy to it and the camera's totally a character in the movie so we we had the blankie cam where I would lay on a blanket and be dragged across room whenever we're chasing dogs. We had the shaky cam which was a camera mounted on a twelve foot piece of plywood aboard JOE AT ONE END. Meoni other an era flex to see with a nine point eight millimeter lens in the middle and we would run and lifted up and over fountains cars up a ladder through a window and into Florence Arizona's mouth in one shot. And then then you fall the last collaboration. I guess was Miller's crossing a gorgeous movie just like I mean like and more classical in some ways it's still coen brothers. Sonnenfeld skewed version of that right gangster story but that was that's a good way to go out in terms of that that trip ticket. Three films you did with them. They're very different. And Raising Miller's crossing is my favorite movie I ever shot as the cinematographer in terms of my own work. It's a handsome it's beautiful. It's not wacky. There's not a lot of wide angle lenses and In New Orleans but it doesn't say nuance is supposed to be like any city. In America will gangster quality to really stands up so you transition into feature directing with the addams family and from what I gather was it Scott Rudin that essentially kind of gambled on you on that one so for good or for bad. He's a character. I understand. You never interviewed him. I've heard all the stories. I mean. He's well Scott. I love him and I wish you were dead. I'll tell you a quick story about so Scott. Had tried to get Terry Gilliam and Tim. Burton to direct addams family. When they both passed he sent the script to me. I was looking to be a director. I was very happy as a cameraman. I felt I could be in charge of my craft. He's sent it to me said read it meet me. Hugo's which is place in La in two hours and I grew up with. Detroit addams cartoons. Because you know they were in the New Yorker and they're they're up my alley because it totally visual and also the reader had to find the joke you know you had to scan the image and say oh he's got a para scissors and all of that guys so I said. Why do you want me to direct? And he said well all the good directors past thank you and he said I'd rather take a chance with a visual stylist with a hack comedy Guy Right. It was a nightmare was a lot of pressure through a lot. I fainted on the set. Yasser DP. We've lost our EP. Because he was so slow after ten weeks. We had to get rid of them. Get another one but we had a great the Owen reisman is one of the great ones. See and French connection. Yeah so impeccably cast to wral Julia Nanteuil can reach those three alone row. And ANGELICO were both Scott. And my idea. And Scott. Didn't WanNa Hire Christina Christina Ricci. He he liked this other girl. Who had hyper thyroid? Is that look like we're all? My Christina is so dark and wonderful here. Here's the story not in the book. Barry Sonnenfeld call your mother. I went. We did a shot wide. Shut the whole family. The door opens and they see faster for the first time and it was fine and went up to Christina. I said Hey Christina. That was great. But let's just do one more where you look sadder I sought and she's ten. I started to walk away. And she says Barry. Oh God this is going to be our US Christina. I can't look at her and I said okay. How come and she said well. Sadness is an emotion and Wednesday has no emotion. Some of Jesus. I gotTA SMART One so I said Okay you know what? Just look more morose and I walked back and she did a second take. She looks at her and I gave her an award when she was like thirty. And I told the story and I said to this day. I don't know if she knew what morose meant or didn't know but knew it meant something like sad and Christina. Took the award and said believe me. Barry I knew what Merola ten going on forty. Yeah and I for my money and bizarrely. It's actually been on cable a lot lately. I've been watching addams family values. Bits and pieces the camp Chippewa stuff has just like gold. It's one of the best comedy sequels out there. I think that one is it. True is the four. Is that you turn down forrest Gump to do that. One yes and no what happened was after addams family came out the head of the studio not the chairman but the president Gary Lucchessi loved it and said Look I. We have age scripts of this thing forrest. Gump I'm not sending you any script. It's no good. I'm sending you the book. I read the book and the character forrest. Gump is sort of an overweight guy who's really St- confederacy of Dante's so I wrote I call Gary. I said look. Here's the thing I shot big. I know hangs hangs would be perfect for it instead of fat guy. Let's just make him a a runner. And can I sent the hangs and Gary said can you send it the hangs? Yeah I send it to hang so I said look. You probably don't WanNa do it because it's another man child thing. It's similar big in some ways. Hanks loved it so now I have hangs I hire Eric Roth. We have the script and then paramount is. You can do forrest gump up. We want you to do Adam Sandler values. I I said Great. I'll do addams family vials and I'll do gump and the producer rightfully so said. I don't want to wait hangs could die. There could be another movie like forrest Gump. Hanks could change his mind. I want to go now and I don't WanNa wait for Barry and her husband was and who is chairman. A president of Warner Brothers. Canton said to my agent. If Barry Make says wait he will never work in this business again. Something original Hollywood never spoken before and my agent at the time no longer said barrier. You can't do gum you know and what I should have done was insisted on it producing credit since I did get hangs and I did get that script but life goes on that would have reports. But you've found other rewards. I found and I'm here with if I had done that. Maybe I'd never write this book and Barry Sonnenfeld Call Your mother. Maybe I'm here with you. I've been told to say the idol media trained very well very well. We can't go into detail on everything. Obviously get shorty comes That's an exceptional piece of work. Using I mean it was kind of Travolta at the height of his powers coming off. Poll Use Gene Hackman. Who's just for money like my favorite actor of all time at a great comedy actor because he never tries to be funny. So we'll get into this a little bit one man in black but like Hackman's one of those that has a reputation to he's a tough guy like not every directors got along well with him. Yeah did you get along well with Gene Hackman? Jim Is very scary. Here's the thing though..

"You guys. This is my conversation with Barry Sonnenfeld. I'm such a fan of your work and I've always have been an. I'm excited about this memoir. This is always been the plan. Was this like in. Life's goals at some point. I'M GONNA put pen to paper. I was so nervous about you. I already nervous that. You're you're shiny jacket is making too much noise whenever you whenever you change your your t-shirt only. I'm weirdly. No I'm a visual list. I I'm very interested in sound okay. That's so much better. Okay Okay yes okay now to your plan and the idea doing a memoir. Here's what happened. I've lived in unusual and interesting life and I live now with my wife and telluride Colorado our neighbors Jerry Seinfeld USA hear horrible stories about me trying to direct men in black three and the studio interference and producing interference and one day. He came over and said you know. I think you'd really enjoy doing stand up and I said aren't I too old to do stand up and he said Oh. Yeah you're way way too all. You won't make any money doing it but you should try it and instead I wrote my memoir which is sort of a safer way. I still can get people to laugh but I don't have to be there watching them not laugh if they don't like and you get to perform you do the audiobook yourself. You didn't call and Will Smith to do the audio actually I did call in Max Greenfield. Who is sort of like my good-looking d'appel Ganger but the the publisher has Schadt said now. Now we really want you to do it. But here's a problem. We're going to need an audio glossary because when you hear me say poor you're thinking something that comes out of a pitcher and I'm thinking that's what dogs have at the end of their legs. They have horns so I was going to be a disaster but it turned out well and I think the audio book is pretty funny so yeah now to some out there. You might seem like an exotic creature but I have to say Barry. You are familiar to me a we do. What made you. I grew up in New York. We both were born on April first. Barry no we suffer from that affliction. Well it's good and bad as you know the good news. Is Everyone remembers your birthday. The bad news. Is You get beautiful boxes of Godiva chocolate but each one is half eat. So that's the best well. Congratulations jokes ever end. Because they haven't quite ended for me at my advanced age well even more advanced I will be in a few weeks Sixty seven and now no. They never get old. They always have been right but they never stopped. But everyone remembers your birthday. There you go. Yeah so let's talk a little bit about your beginnings because it clearly has like for anybody. Your childhood makes an impact but for you in particular it sounds like your parents clearly defined the neurotic filmmaker sitting before me today. Thank you. So how would you describe your parents to the uninitiated? Well they were both different versions of narcissists. Yeah my mother. My mother's narcissism was about being a martyr. I say her ability was her strength through weakness. The example that I give is the name of my book is Barry Sonnenfeld. Call your mother. It's based on a very true event. An early nineteen seventy. I was seventeen years old about to be eighteen and I was that the first piece concert at Madison Square Garden Hair Peter Paul and Mary Jimi Hendrix and I was supposed to be home at two. It was two twenty in the morning Jimi Hendrix was warming up in one thousand nine thousand six hundred people and over the PA system of course comes the announcement. Barry Sonnenfeld call your mother so first of all the amount of strength to weakness it would take to reach someone at the garden to get them to the person who could make a decision to get me to actually be page so the only reason that could ever happen of course is that my father was dead. Sure but he wasn't. The problem was it was two twenty and I was supposed to be home with two so now we being I stand up which announces to everyone I am Barry Sonnenfeld and what started in the blue seats. Cheap seeds in the garden but cascaded down towards the red and orange was and the garden is a genius chanting that Ari bad very so by the time I got to the phone. I'm weeping uncontrollably. Is Dad dead? No what's wrong. It's two twenty. You'd be home at two. But did they tell you? The concert was still going on while. Yeah but they couldn't confirm you were there so that that's my mother. Did she become a less protective as you? She's still with us. See Your parents guide their about them. I'm sorry to hear that but I know we can get to that too. So did she get less protective as Steve Success? Like once you were I can establish like you had a career or did she did her. Her narcissism knew no bounds and I was well. Here's here's the thing. Many times in my career I said horribly mean things about my mother in a New York Times on David Letterman. I said that until he died. My mother could have been Vincent Gardenias photo double and I didn't know this but I had been pre interviewed. Letterman had a photo of Gardenia. I looked at the photo and I said well mom has more facial hair. Mom was still alive at the time but the worst one was when men in black came out I was a Newsweek had mentioned that I was sort of a winey neurotic guy as a complement. Of course in what you see is what you get. Why you see your lovely and I was quoted as saying that I would walk around the stage offering crew members four hundred thousand dollars to either get me fired off the movie or kill my mother so my mother reads as a Newsweek. And says you really wish I were dead and I said mom I promise you I would never pay anyone four hundred thousand dollars to kill you and my mother said. Thank you Barry. I love you too. Turns that you were the perfect. It'd be the on thermometer Mama. From the train this is your life store wish fulfillment. Yeah that's right. If only yeah but she died and then but that died in is late nineties he was around and I mean you you know. In addition to the very funny stories that are throughout this book. There's some serious stuff in there. I mean you talk about the abuse that you suffered. Well my parents being the narcissists that they were so they allowed my mother's cousin who we called. Crm The child might child molester to live with us for several years molesting me neighbor kids cousins of all sexes. Because if you're pre pugh bessant a child molesters e is an equal opportunity molester and and it's I don't make fun of it but here I am and and it's all fun fun fun games but not really but in my ninety s in his nineties I should live so long as they say I went to see my father and I said why did you let someone. Who's a child molester? Live with us. Let me sit barry. I have three reasons first of all. Don't forget back then. Child-molestation didn't have the same stigma has now that was number one. Then he said also don't forget I was having so many affairs and your mother was so depressed that I thought having Mike around would cheer her up also pretty Moronic but the third one and my favorite the one that made me go tilt and leave was when he said because you keep thinking maybe the parents didn't know maybe my parents but he said I never thought he was molesting you only thought he was playing with your penis. I wish point you go tilt see around. Thanks so we just have different definitions of things. Go our separate. We exactly topic right. How do you not repeat the mistakes of the previous generation? I mean while you're neurotic? You're clearly my is not what you're describing now. Do you have a family I do? Do I have parents yet showed. I don't actually don't okay all right. Well here's what you learn you. Hara ably become your parents you not to use value owned but I am like my father because my father was a salesman and I'm always like slapping people on her back. Come on let's do that. I'm so and my daughter or my wife was at some point. Say you're being like Sonny. Sonny was the nickname for my father. Sonny Sonnenfeld and I'm like my mother in that. I live in constant fear of all things. My mother wouldn't let me go to. She called it sleep away. School others called College. She said if I went away to a left home for college she would commit suicide so I went to Nyu for three years. And then when I was going to be a senior I thought wait. I could go away to another school and my mother commits suicide. Two Birds One stone. So I went to Hampshire for my senior year and mom reneged unfortunately didn't kill herself. Bot literally my daughter. Who's twenty six? I have two stepdaughters and a daughter with my wife and literally when she flies. Let's say from L. A. Asia. I have flight aware and I know our flight number and I put it in and I stay up all night watching her flight and I'll go wait a minute. There the middle of the Pacific and they just dropped from thirty seven thousand to thirty six thousand eight hundred feet. What's that about? What's going on on that plane? And the capacity of your mom to somehow get into the PA system on that plane. Text me exactly exactly so the obvious question that I think will probably be a running theme against the career stuff with you is. I've talked to many filmmaker here and most of them generally speaking exude confidence. It's like a big thing is Kinda like no you be the guy or woman that has the plan. Even if you don't have that now by all accounts you've succeeded with a different plan. How how do you? How do you kind of job that? Why does being a neurotic serve you? Well as a filmmaker. Well you know. I'm very accessible. And but I do have very very strong opinions. And I have very very specific ways of directing first of all the only thing first of all everything directed does is just having opinions answering questions. No prop guy when they give you. The Red Folder and agreed folder. Wants to hear you say oh. I don't care you choose. See you go the green folder and then on the day you realize. Oh Jesus a woman carrying the green folders and a green dress will never see the green folder I screwed up and then you say the guy. Hey do you remember he goes? I got the red folder. No problem so they but you have to make decisions you need to be strongly opinionated and all you need to do is to tell actress talk faster. No director ever has ever since press and Sturgis and Howard Hawks because I'm a comedy guy. Directors don't pace their movies on the set they try to pace it in the cutting room. And that's a wrong place. Editing is the enemy of comedy. Comedy plays into shot action and reaction cary grant in a bathrobe. Catherine have burned calling him Mr Bones. And that's not his name by what's funny is Catherine in the foreground chatting away and cary grant doing nothing but reacting right. That's comedy and to get it to work to get to to to work. People have to talk fast so all I ever do is. I'll say great. Let's just do one more way faster. The other thing I often do with throws people off. If you're two people in a scene after take I go up to them and say one of you is very good. You don't say what you don't say which one of them assume they weren't the good one and they get better and the third thing I do. Which exude self-confidence is direct from the saddle and literally I have now. I have to saddles for many years. I had a saddle that sit on sat on an apple boxes sat on a platform wheels. Right at first it had four wheels but it kept throwing me so no it has twelve wheels. Three in each corner and at the last year of a series of unfortunate events The the other executive producer Rosa. Lamb 'cause I kept saying I need a motorized saddle. Got Me one she. She bought a rascal. You know the things that like old people drive around your community took off. The seat had the special effects..

Marley's it was mar lease but I thought Oh it's somebody you know that's a rare name and often somebody wants to tell me I'm named to when I call gay that's that's what I was going to be was going to be an oh yeah and it was a it was you know yea I mean a different a different sort do you had no idea no no no no and how do you think it's going to change your life if at all will the first thing I thought about was that I was really going to take all the stuff that was stressing me how about teaching in particular and keep the part that I love which is I love working with my students and I love doing this research and the research that most interested in is working with human beings for whom I'm writing and drawing Hammett split yet and they happen to be four years old on the campus at the universe st we have four pre cake schools and there's one that I become very attached to and so I'm gonna be able to really work deeply with these or year old's not as somebody who is there to teach or even encourage but I believe that drawing with people that aid which has a mutual benefit that's profound and I've seen it with my students that I started a program because I was so confused about why Gradstein agents were so miserable in general in general in particularly Y that's acceptable to the academy and why it's an acceptable state for a Grad student to be and I don't understand it and I feel like we should be doing everything we can to make their lives comfortable because they're the people that are discovering things and oh I tr- I started a program Along with a Grad student I worked with Ebony flowers I I told my Grad students that I was gonna find Kobe researchers for them work on their dissertations or they're these and I didn't tell them that the career Sir researchers were four years old and that's what we did we set up a program so that in my students met with four year olds for two and a half hours once a week to work on their dissertations because I feel like in Grad school what happens is you're focused this becomes laser sharp and anything that isn't getting you toward whatever your goal is seems to be extraneous but discovery doesn't work that way and so I wanted them to to be with a human beings that had this super open frame of mind and after that I started to really is that that applied to me too and that might time with them always resulted in some discovery in my own work yeah that's what I get like it to be crawl on the floor with four year old you right in your new book which I WanNa Talk to you about in more depth in a little a bit but in regard to the specific topic one reflection that astounded me is you state that have drawing or singing or dance thing and things of that nature are absent in children we worry about them yes not so for adults right so this this separate nation of writing and drying how do we encourage that to continue longer than four or five years old in a person then how does that become a lifelong quest it stays with US naturally if the environment around US takes part in it you know I work with kids much as I can and oftentimes their parents around and what's amazing to me is how if I'm doing drawing I'm with kids and parents the parents have three modes around their child that's fine I can rarely get apparent to draw with us it's very rare that I can do that and is it because they're afraid they're not going to do a good job oh they're so afraid not only that when you ask them you WanNa draw the first thing they do is they cross arms and hide their hands it's as if their hands might accidentally start drawing and so they actually have to Tuck them away in case the hands because I do think the hands want to so the things that parents do they either instruct tell tell if you're drawing a lion you gotta remember if it's a male wine it has all this hair around its head or they encouraged that's fantastic look at that that's fantastic or they're on their phone in there's actual those the three modes and their fear of drawing is so profound that it's like when somebody suddenly has a bodily fluid Ed escapes that they can't control and then they just are horrified and tried to see you know like if your nose started bleeding or something it's that kind of horror and that urge to destroy it so what I'm curious about is why that horror exists so I've also done a whole lot of work with adults to get them to draw and to find drawing exercises that aren't intimidating or that somehow bypass they're they happen too fast for people that fear to step in and when I say working with kids I feel like I'm also working with kids when I'm working with adults because I'm working with the part of them that gave up drawing about the age of eight when the I realized they couldn't draw knows and for most people knows her hands age of eight it's over that's I'm washed up it's over and they are living with the decision that made about themselves at the age of eight or nine well there's the notion of being afraid of doing anything that we don't think we're going to be good at but you can't get good at something until you start doing it and so I think a lot of us live in this paralysis of wanting to do something but also being ashamed of not being able to do it well and being humiliated in the process of of doing it and then in there the thing the thing that's lost is you don't even have not being able to do it well you don't have to be able to do it well it sort of like thinking in in particularly with the art it's sort of like thinking that unless you can ride Mike like Lance Armstrong. You shouldn't write a bike will not even Lance Armstrong could ride a bike lance Armstrong right exactly or kind of thing like say you go on a on a bike ride and you have a good bike ride and then you come back and you feel pretty good about it that should be it but say after you feel pretty good at it those guys in the Google car show up and they knock on the door and they went on a bike ride and you go yeah and they say how do you think what do I think it went pretty well let's look at the tape you know what I mean there's this thing where the actual experience of drawing isn't experience but then they treat the drawing like it's a thing in and thing to be judged or it's not even judging it it's it's so different and that's what I love about comics because comics leap right over that problem of representation I mean you wouldn't want Charlie Brown with a hyper realistic knows or hands maybe pretty horrifying they leap right over that problem in all those shapes that are preserved by our ability to write the alphabet and are beautiful numerals they're the most beautiful shapes those shapes can allow you to make comics satisfying comics yeah I will never forget the first time chip kidd showed me the cover of the nuts book that he edited because it was just a close up of Charlie Brown's is so it looked like a C. period period and AC- and didn't understand what I was looking at and then as soon as I realized it of course you can never unsee that it becomes so clear and it was so genius those gestures news of everything that Charlie Brown is in just those little scratches of recollection and you just did it you said a c a period a period in see like when my four year old say I I'll tell him I often talk to them about difficulties my students have I heard them with my problems and I say well for instance they're they're scared of drawing hands and this kid goes it's cancer easy it's a snowball thump thump thump thump or years that's another thing and they'll say the letter C with a five minute so but but they're describing these shapes you can already see it in your head were discussing something right when we say those things so that's the stuff I'm the most fascinated with and I've seen over and over again and when we look at kids drawings and they have this enormous charm that disappeared adult quick drawing also have drawings can make with enormous charm if you can just get the paper away from them as fast as possible so they can't do anything to your three minutes three minutes and take it away I am not sure if it's in making comics in syllabus where you redraw a child's drying and you can see the charm in the child's drying and you're Tation of that trying this is like a certain soul that's not quite that doesn't make an partly it's because the kids drawing isn't wine so if I'm copying and I'm copying the line work with scientists to watch their whiteboard how they move their hands on the whiteboard when they're thinking it's astonishing I mean the parallels between how their hands look and how their drawings look and a four year olds is is amazing it would make the physicists just cry to show that they it looks just like four year old but the thing that I've come to realize what if that's what a line looks like not just when you're getting an idea but that the line itself is giving you an idea and I think that that's the part people don't remember or suspect about drawing that draw Kengo not just from your head to the page but definitely from the page up your hand and into your head and that's the kind of drawing that kids are doing they're drawing and then seeing what it is they're dry I this kid Eighty I was sitting next to him and all of a sudden he goes I just drew Batman I did not know that I know how to draw Batman and it was this astonishing drawing of they've already gone through the whole Batman in one week I mean because they're a whole there at some kind of super time in a whole other time yeah that's their where it's at Linda win what is your first creative memory oh it's Oh the letter o it.

"That character in in newer and more interesting directions over time i think that's a really really nice performance right because again there is a version of this where it's she's just the self involved actor right and they really take the time to dig beyond that it's great well and there's also a version of this in which she's never anything but completely kind of charmed and right and delighted by him at all times and they are realistic about the fact that if he is who they're saying he is his instincts with someone that he was interested in would be kind of all jumbled up in broken and i think they're able to sort of play with that in a way that that makes sense so that you don't feel like he's you know all of a sudden this skilled romantic leave is coming out in he's not a spy right right he's an assassin yeah and hater and has described at famously as what if travis bickel from texas driver met the guys from waiting for government and that's kind of that that's that's that's a a large chasm to straddle i i think it's doing it really well i think got there if he met them and didn't kill them all all right well we want to know what you think about barry find us on facebook at facebook dot com slash pch or tweet us at p c h he didn't follow eric on twitter at dagens thanks for men here and of course thank you for listening we'll be back here on friday talking about one of the great traditions of public television packed attic spaces antiques roadshow and next tuesday if you want to hear darcy carden who is on berry and also is on the good place which we know many of you like she will be talking to sam sanders on his show it's been a minute and if you have a second and you're so inclined please give us her view on apple podcasts it helps more folks to find the show we will see you friday.
