"Because there was no IMDb in that I just realized recently all that time was in a relationship with Joseph Campbell. Joseph Campbell, I wish I'd known, if I had, I wouldn't have known what to add, because I didn't know Joseph gamble. But interesting people. I somehow came upon, you know, tried to be as receptive as I could. So that's the first job stalker Channing. I'll bet you admire her. But you enjoy her. She was a fantastic. She was in it. I played for an audition for her that she went. But she was great. We went to places in New York with a group of people that were just great. It was an extension of that my feeling at Carnegie Mellon university and a chatham. You know, I was just hungry for and ready to be darn wound up in groups that were really interesting and nourishing. So that's the first job. I go to L granted a Coca-Cola, the second job right around that time. I get signed up for the first movie and Michael winner and Charles Brunson in this movie, death wish. Michael winner was a known screamer and a kind of, you know, not as highly esteemed as one of the great art cinema artists of our time, I think it's fair to say, but he in the first scene that I was doing yelled at me and said, we were just rehearsing the camera shot with me and two other bad guys. We were lurking up these stairs. Then he's yelled at the top of his voice in front of everybody. Goldblum start acting now. Which doesn't see which seems like, but I'll tell you, it's a nugget. If you receive it in the right way, it's a pretty good nugget of learning and inspiration. Just start acting. It's not bad. Anyway, you know, you're ripe. Soon I came across Robert Altman, who my gosh, a pillar of, you know, if they're not nobody else ever happened, he was a pillar of a model, an exemplar of artistry and originality and beauty and loveliness and great. So I was just a few. One thing kind of apropos of just being here at the Hollywood Roosevelt. And I think we all take for granted when we're in LA, the experience for people of coming here for the first time and you're talking about growing up in Pittsburgh and being in New York. LA like what was your experience of coming here? Was it always on your radar to end up in LA and what was it like to be here when you first got here? How'd you find community? It wasn't on my radar. I had no I've never been as I stole them not particularly strategic or I don't know where things are leading necessarily. But what happened was I'd never been to Los Angeles in my life and I was in el granted to Coca-Cola and Robert Altman. I didn't even know the saw the show because there was a snowstorm and he had to change his plans and saw it. He called, I was in my village apartment, the phone rang, and they said, this is the casting director from Robert Alden. We saw you in that show. We'd like you to do this movie, California's split. Okay. Miraculous call, really, and they said, okay, we made arrangements. They sent me the script. I flew on a plane to Los Angeles and Scotty Bushnell has this casting person and producer picked me up at the airborne. I'd never seen it before, and she drove me to Westwood, didn't know what that was to his lion's gate operation there. And there was this courtyard. It was kind of Spanish. She looking and there was this courtyard and I'll be done. Robert Altman was up there and Gwen wells if you remember her with whom I did another movie after California split was walking around and these people were exotically wonderful and he said I just did this movie mash and people are kind of got something to do now and he was great. He was great. And so seeing that that night, that day, and that night, getting off the plane was striking and remarkable. And then, you know, hanging around there for a couple of week or two and doing that part. That was amazing. And then I went back, and then he said, if I like you and you're like me, we'll do Nashville this summer, didn't Nashville, what an amazing. Oh my golly to hang out with Lily Tomlin and Geraldine Chaplin and Keith Carradine and Ronnie blakeley and those people and Robert Altman and his opera and the people making that. And that was at the high point somehow of his I think many would say of his work with that and they did what Wes Anderson does now just kind of bubble this up. All we took over this complex there in Nashville and hung out for the whole time, what an amazing time. And then afterwards, I was like when an agent said, come out to California and we'll show you around. That was Abby greshler with diamond artists who had handled Martin and Lewis kind of an old time agent. I was okay, I'll come out stayed on the couch of a friend, and then just stayed. And so at first it was, you know, what it was, then Callie will grant a Coca-Cola, got up again here at the at the whisky a go go, we did it there at the whisky and go go for a little bit. And I got some. And then they sent me up for a few things and I did like a blue night and a starsky and Hutch and a Colombo and a Laverne and Shirley. So I was doing some things, but then you know and then things started to happen. But it was fine and dandy. You know, I still had taken dance classes and then I wound up taking finding Peggy fury, taking more acting classes and then you get to 83 and with my friend, we said, let's have a school. Let's kind of keep teaching this so we learned how to do it. And I talked for a couple of decades at this place and it became a California became a nourishing family and place to be of creativity and it's been very creative. We'll be right back with more Jeff Goldblum and vulture festival. This podcast is sponsored by better help online therapy. Better.

"Dot com use the code BSG America's number one sports book for 25 years, head over there right now and subscribe. Thanks a lot Greg. All right, let's bring in Sharon blakeley talk some hoops, Celtics playing second of a back to back tonight in Charlotte. We'll talk about that in a little bit. They beat Houston on Sunday. They're supposed to beat Houston, which is great. They're supposed to have beaten Toronto, but they didn't. So again, a win is a win. The first of he made jokes, coaching career. Don't want to spend a ton of time on it, but just quick thoughts on that game again. Good to get that win. One thing that stood up to me actually was, how happy they were for email? Which was a really good sign because after those couple of games, particularly when they laid an egg and showed no effort in game two, you start to wonder like, wow, you can't quit on your coach this early. So seeing how kind of happy they were for email and what a big deal they made out of his first win. I thought was a good sign. Yeah, it was a good sign. For them, it was a good sign in part because a lot of the things that email has been talking about, they were actually able to do and execute and execute for longer stretches against Houston, which as you pointed out, they're not a very good team. So you were supposed to play this way against teams that are very good. But there's still a lot of work to be done. And you may know that they know that. It was funny after the game or emit comment to them when they congrats them for the win. He said, well, you know, took your life long enough. You know, subtle, but very clear indication that guys, we still have work to do. You have to keep getting better. This is just the beginning. Hopefully for them this will be the beginning of many more wins for him this year..

"Contact with hundreds of people on the ground who are trying to get out of kabul and. We've been fortunate enough to be able to coordinate and get a couple of hundred people out but it's not nearly enough There's not enough time to get everybody out. There's not enough freedom of movement in the region to get people to the airport. There are too many people who are getting stopped at checkpoints. Too many people who are getting turned around too many people whose documents are being stripped from their hands so that even when they get to the airport they can't get through a checkpoint so it's impossible to get everybody out. It is not going to happen by august. Thirty first and that is just an -solutely terrifying eventuality and i can't disagree with you that that is going to be the end game. But i wanted to ask you President biden Saying that well there was no way that our withdrawal from this war This twenty year war Was going to be anything less than chaotic but it appears as though and there have been numerous reports that he basically ignored All of the information that he was getting from the likes of military experts and analysts and the c. i. a. Did it have to be this chaotic. Not whether we practiced for this. We trained for spares is You know the the the noncombatant Exfiltration.

"Kfi northern colorado's voice as we are an affiliate of the denver broncos carrying all preseason including this saturday's and regular season games on both frequencies. But if you are headed on down to denver well some things that you need to know now. The broncos welcomed the la rams on saturday with a full crowd of seventy six thousand one hundred and twenty five. I don't think there's going to be an empty seats in the proverbial house. Only a few thousand fans were allowed for some games last season. As you're well aware the broncos rams kick off at seven pm in that preseason finale all right let's get down to brass tacks now. Consistent with local guidelines the broncos said there are no restrictions at empower field at mile high for fans who are vaccinated if you're unvaccinated yours strongly encouraged to wear that mask of chaim where face covering so everyone will know that you're not vaccinated. Where a face covering to protect themselves and others are all right. Let's not get it all twisted here. The you know. I was talking with a bill yesterday and i it kind of feels like the truman show doesn't it did you ever see the truman show with jim carey and he realizes that Basically he is living in a big reality show at the end of the movie that his life and everything that happens in it has been predetermined by some unknown all seeing hand. The end that Well everything is scripted. To some extent as we're working our way through this delta variant and as we're seeing the crackdowns and the mandates and requirements starting to crop up again and again a not undermining the dangers of covert nineteen. What i am questioning this kind of patchwork approach from the government in terms of maintaining total absolute power and control. But i thought it was a really good comparison. The truman show as to what we're going through as we're apparently going through round to around three or whatever. The case may be of those cove in one thousand nine hundred guidelines and restrictions that are being enforced by the all-knowing all-seeing government that unfortunately seems to have a propensity to talk out of both sides of his out their mouths protectively when it comes to our epidemiologist in chief. Ooh not making the biden administration. Happy whatsoever saying well. It could be another year before we're fully out of this but it's all subject to change. I get it the science changes and they maintain their following the science. But what science. Indeed are they following and again what they seem to be doing in some ways is dividing us even further no dividing us on racial fronts. Not enough but now they are building this division this chasm between those who wear a mask and those who don't wear them ask those who are vaccinated those who are unvaccinated. I mean not that. I follow jennifer aniston very closely whatsoever and i could really care less what it is that she does..

"He's pretty cool. Seems to have a pretty level headed approach to the game But you salivate over locked charm arm now if the broncos could hire a man scientists to somehow surgically combine the two. You might have a better david car now apart. They're each one half of the ideal answer but you can only them the game with one and as for the. Let's trade locked crowd. You know you are well you might wanna think about just cooling your jets just a little bit. Maybe throttling down a bit for one. Recent history says both quarterbacks will see the field at some point this season for another. What kind of return do you think. Get for the guy who ranks number thirty two. Among nfl starters passing rating. That would be seventy five point two last fall now. We already know. Bridgewater has the chops to get the job done. But if we're totally honest with lock well it's kind of a wait and see deal now isn't it. But what do you think of. Teddy bridgewater being named the starting quarterback of for the broncos. I kept my powder dry in this one. But just watching those tapes. I had to admit that. I thought bridgewater had it hands down but again you broncos country are the experts so let me know what you think. Nine seven zero three five three thirteen ten dropped me tax stunner thirteen ten kfi tax. Meanwhile drew lock after losing that quarterback battle to teddy bridgewater. Well he showed his professionalism certainly he. He was disappointed by the call but he vowed to stay ready for his moment. Should it indeed dot com in two thousand twenty one according to a piece by kyle newman out of denver post. He had a chance to talk to drew. Lock and locked. Said i mean totally a class. Act saying unprompted that. If my time comes and i never wish anything negative bunt anybody especially at this position. I'll be ready for it whenever going on to say there won't be any lack of work from me. I'm going to be able to go out there and keep the play the same and if not try to make it a little better. He went on to say. I have to look in the mirror and see what i need to get better at figure out what it is that i need to do to keep progressing. Keep getting better not taking any steps back..

"Two nine seven four seven eight thirteen a one so kicked off The morning yesterday with a piece by Sean keillor out of the denver. Post saying just make a decision. Just make a choice. Just let us know who the starting quarterback for the broncos is going to be and had to giggle. Yesterday's news was breaking and we learned that a quarterback teddy bridgewater got the ride while schon keeler added again in the denver. Post and want to see if you agree with this assessment. He says if the ultimate destination for the broncos is the play offs well just ask our own mica kilpatrick. He'll tell us. The ultimate destination is a super bowl victory because he is the consummate broncos fan nothing if not consistent but again is shawn keller and the post says if the ultimate destination for the broncos is the play offs quarterback. Teddy bridgewater is the ride. That gives us the better chance at arriving in one piece. What do you think about that. It's the goal john. Keeler goes on to say is being relevant in november and december where broncos general manager. George peyton sent the bar a month ago giving bridgewater the starting nod act quarterback over drew lock was indeed the right call. He didn't wind up there. No for where. This team is now. Not where broncos country wants it to be but the reality of the roster. It's the right call. He then takes a shot. I suppose it could be construed at the coaching staff for coaching staff. That needs to win now. Starting with the sot this september. The nfl could plop in front of a team. All right he makes a very good point there but that gives them a chance to warm up right. Definitely the right call and for the defensive. That's for the pro bowlers on the final years of their contracts. Look at ju. Von miller and kyle fuller it is the right hall but let me ask you this. Do you believe it's the right call. Healer says if you're still uneasy with fangio's decision just pull up the tape. From last saturday's game at seattle when the seahawks brought pressure from the outside early on in a fourth and five with both edge rushers blowing past. The broncos starting tackles bridgewater sensed it. He stepped into a safe throwing lane. Finish the play in that same game when seattle brought the heat up the middle on. Lock and the backups. In the second half number three turtled he took the sack. Different pressures sure different lineups but also different reactions in different outcomes. Now you trust teddy's is don't you.

I had back my parents to work in a hotel which was very unpopular at the time but They've found the best job that could find the finest hotel which unfortunately was about one hundred kilometers away from home.

I've been watching way too many of your videos so i apologize for cyber stalking you so much but i want you deliver a talk and i was out. My kids had a cheerleading event and in kansas city and so the way shooting events goes kids perform for about three minutes and then the rest of the weekend. You're kind of you know hanging out at this arena. So i went back to the hotel while i was waiting for them to perform and i watched videos and one of the things that you said and i had to play it back over and over and over as you were comparing you were comparing your commitment to having excellence in work with your commitment to staying married. If i'm getting that correct could you please explain the parallels between committing to bring excellence and committing to stay married while it it. It's all i believe. Everything we do is a decision that we make not not not a pipedream clear decision. I met in marriage. I met a clear decision. When i got merit i will be in love with that woman for the rest of my life not just lover but be in love and i can tell you unequivocally i'm married. Forty years am totally in love with that woman but it takes work. It's not different than when you take a job jamaica decision to be excellent in that job job or whatever is in life decisions i can either just go to work or go to work to create excellence. I always say. I got a for two reasons. One is to create. Excellence in what i'm doing too is to be with my friends if they like it or not tim o. Friends if i have that attitude. I enjoy going there and create something. Why are we to eight hours. Whatever we are at work now you know in a leadership position as much more dollars but what it is eight hours wasted and just do function rather than whatever. The function is good. Excellent the dish washing or whatever. It is could excellence in that but the well how does a cop out well. It's a decision and decision on which you on neutral work on which you which you remind yourself all the time and this deal so it is not different mid anything ounce horse. I don't want you to Throw anything over the phone here. And i'm not. I'm not that satan needs an advocate. But i'm going to be the devil's advocate. Because i grew up really poor. I didn't start working on his fourteen but really sixteen is when i started my first thing and i am not a stranger of the sixty hour the seventy hour work week. I'm not afraid to get to work at for five or whatever. I'm also going to take care of my body and get sleep and also style five kids. I've been married eighteen years. So many people i see they say well the reason why i didn't get to work on time. They just didn't feel like it. And so they have so talk to me about your mindset of committing the excellence versus other people saying i just don't feel yeah but this is no different. I have friends of friends. A couple of years ago is good. Good friends and getting divorced. I mean of course when people who've been divorced it is a total friends and everybody gets divorces. It's import fall. And when i had to sit down i didn't understand their were for to purely for people. Good looking people. Friendly people won't be ba honorable people so i had to sit down with us from johnson. Said why why why it'd be fuelling. What are you waiting for feeling. I rather mega decision. What my feeling is wrong. Make it make a feeling make my decisions. Can you repeat that against sir. That was great. Yeah well i'm saying i really are that. Make the decision. What i feel rather than have to feeling decide what i what i do. How how who i am et cetera. Is this is. This is so unreasonable to even allow that to happen. You make a decision on them. You communicate with the the decision you have to fight against the feelings that. Try to interfere with your decision but it has to still your decision and the and the feeling. It's your decision and not did you. Your decision is it driven by your feelings that right. There is a a knowledge nugget that somebody needs to write down to put that on a t shirt. Many people today should consider getting a tattoo tattoo that as a tattoo.

I'd be a quiet name african we had a couple of names subiaco quiet and and But we said we'd be clear to have an existing name that already mixed sense that a people know it is a hotel and we we pursued to tell us a one hotel in san francisco and so tell and and he and and another one and and he came back and said the ball this also in in boston. We didn't like that because it was a tower hotel. It was terribly dilapidated. It was only four. Vehicle for monthly renders.

I don't think that's next season. We're probably the season after that one you know. So that's what it comes down to is. When do they make their next move after this. You know because it's clear that they did the thing with when they got kharian here and they had hayward and they had horford and they had all of these people and they had all these chips and had the kids on rookie deals and they could. They felt like they put together this super team. I think they need to start thinking about when that next one will be even though these two guys will be on max's now We'll see what happens. I think it's might be like a one year. Not even a rebuilt but just play. Romeo lankford play air. Niece smith play grant williams. Play robin williams. These guys have talent. But they've got play if esther kind of like coaching two worlds where they wanna win all the time now but they have like five. Rookie deals sneed minutes. And they give those guys minutes. Maybe in two years they're really good. Yep romeo langford is the answer times of lesser. He had a good time. Is flat cirque. All right. I just wanted to quickly see some of off seasons for some of these other teams. That went out here. We'll see one question for all three teams. That went out with the wizards here sharks. I'm going to start with you. Because i could tell you're going to have an answer for this one bradley beal. was noncommittal afterwards. We'll see how that one plays out. It kinda comes down to what he wants to know how to project that out my question for you. Sharks is scott brooks you bring him back. I mean if you're going to bring westbrook back you kind of have to write. I don't know like they're kinda tied at the hip at this point. It seems like i mean if your goal is to tank one. I mean and to me. Because that's what the wizards should be doing. Are you got your free leone as you got your playoff. Did it feel great to get utterly trounced in the first round by a vastly superior team that you like that feeling. Did you love it on a team. That like you know. I i like really. I liked what. I've seen a little bit i saw from denny. Lake argued dislike all right. You know some teams lose in the first round and you say you so. Yeah we're building towards the future is completely fine. Everything's gonna be great. I don't think that that's the that's what with the energy were feeling from washington here. So it's like yet bring russell scott brooks back so you get some good lottery. Picks next year. That's that's my thing but they do get rid of bill. Get get your asset for bradley. Do and and move all because this is obviously not some type of winning formula here. I think it's always a matter of what's the alternative like. Who's the coach. You wanna bring in. What kind of coaches that because again. Yeah if they're going to feel the same kind of team and expect dramatically different results. That is not the scott brooks way exactly. And he's he's had a good run here to be honest with you like five years in a job. That's a long time for an nba coach. They have not shown a ton. There's been upheaval. There's been injuries. There's been lots of reasons to explain that. I don't see this team having an incredible upward trajectory. With what it's got and so you're either shaking up the roster. You're changing the coach. Maybe both i don't really have a problem. If they wanna take a dramatically different direction. And if beale you know for his noncommittal as he was if he starts pressuring in the summer wanting something different which would be totally within his right. I think he's certainly done his time there. That is easy clean. Opportunity to transition to a different kind of coach. And what you might wanna in more of a renovating situation for the wizards right All right let's do grizzlies here quickly. rob what do you think the grizzlies need at this point. It seems like they fall into the lot of guys category. They have a lot of young talent. That showed pretty well in the playoffs. Here like bain was good. Tillman name didn't get many minutes. The stretch but it seems like he might be a good parent jaren jackson. Is there anything you see here. That can clarify what they've already shown in the playoffs. I'm trying to figure out a way where they can keep the defensive intensity that they have especially on the perimeter like were therapy possessions in that series where the jazz could not even get below the free. Throw line so up into them. I think that's great. How do you keep that but squeeze in a little more juice off instantly. They do not have it. You know the point of having job mirant is that is a beautiful off ball player that he's so versatile they can. You can score in so many different ways. Impact the game in so many different ways. I want someone to take the ball out of his hands. Just a little bit to play him in that capacity. Because with this series. You know once dillon brooks started playing like just an all star not a first ballot hall of famer. Everything kind of went back to normal. And we've got the sense that you just much better team. They just need a little bit more. Scoring and counting on dillon brooks to be that guy To be a guy you're going to build a statue of outside your arena every night. That's just not it right. All right last one was who is the superstar that knicks fans are going to be beckoning new york this summer. I mean i think the obvious answers. Bill seems like that's obvious you know. We've seen the booker stuff kind of calmed down because the sons have been so successful. Yeah it'll be bill I remember. I remember one of my Frank good friends. Who's a nick fan hitting me very early in the season or midway point the knicks thing. He's like how does brad beal not make this team a contender on. Do you have like. I was not jerry although i would love to hear from jerry About a firm basis really over here. That's my boy boy no Yes is bradley beal and to be honest. I don't think it's the worst thing to the next to you. Know chase second tier eastern conference them right like basically not to you know. Kick him again. But the hawks you know like you're always guaranteed to be in the top five. You might some day. Put a nice enough mixed together to be super frisky one year and even make it to the second round in conference finals. Or whatever and get beat down. But i don't think it's the worst thing in the world for the knicks to get to the second round and put a scare in a team for six games like that's that's a great outcome for franchise that is completely stunk. Up the joint for twenty years That's not hyperbole. That's not overstating it. That's just empirical fact for twenty years. Knicks has stunk up the joint shit. So they should be clamoring for brad. Beal for some level of continued competence. I don't disagree with you. I do think that after another year of competence those same knick fans will be wondering why there isn't a title hanging in the rafters a all right. Let's under there. Thank you for joining us. Thank you to isaiah blakeley. i'm production. We will be back next week. I think we back on wednesday.
