An Excerpt from the book Flirting with Darkness by Ben Courson
"An excerpt from the book flirting with darkness. Ben. Carson. Weapon number three, the magic number of greatness. I got to a point in my struggle with depression where something needed needed to change must suffering. So badly, I finally decided to do something about it. The ten thousand hour rule saved my life. His Book Outliers Malcolm Glad well demonstrated that to be truly greeted anything. You have to put in ten thousand hours of practice. People such as world chess champion Bobby. Fischer businessman Bill Joy, and IBM founder Bill Gates are among the many examples. Glad. While gives of people who excelled because they accelerated they focused and worked hard and gave at least ten thousand hours to becoming the best at what they did. Glad will show that whether you want to be a fiction writer or master criminal. Hockey player or a pianist ten thousand hours was the magic number of greatness. Bent my mind to that goal is a writer Manspeaker. A resolved to stop wasting my energies, processing psychological trauma and to go on a diametrically opposed direction. Instead of disappearing over why dreams weren't coming to pass, I decided to commit myself to working my fingers to the bone to ensure they did. Psychologists, John Hayes quote looked at how long it took the best composers of all time to create their first grey work. He found that nobody including Mozarts was a child prodigy had produced a piece of work of any significance until about ten years after they had I, taken music no amount of innate talent even in a field of genius such as music could overcome the years of practice necessary to Korea work someone may be talented. They may be lucky but they still have to go through ten years of practice in order to become a master and quote. When Churchill came to power during World War Two he said this as he was being inaugurated into office as prime. Minister quote. I. Offer you nothing save blood, toil tears, and sweat and quo. Lecture Chill Ready to go to battle anew, the path will be difficult PROC- ready to claim own finest hour. Getting better stars, which is getting off your tuition in doing something. So I did. My goal was to become a writer and a speaker put in the needed hours. My nearly worked myself to death, but it was infinitely better than brooding found the effort. Cathartic in fulfilling my spirit's began to lift. I figured I had two options number one either get discouraged that my dreams were not coming pass or number to spend the effort of getting prepared for when they did. Legendary preacher Charles spurgeon advised students to stop worrying about when they would get their shot at speaking and concentrate instead on their ability, and they'll let God take the opportunity in other words quit fretting over the how and focus on the what I took these words to heart and focused on my skill set as I improved my craft, our English word amateur comes from a French Italian an line route which means to love an obvious works when he loves the process and it feels good a professional is someone who worked seven days a week whether he feels like it or not. Today. My TV show hope generation is on twenty different networks more than one hundred and eighty countries and radio shows heard on more than four hundred stations daily. I get to speak in stadiums and arenas. My quote unquote overnight success came through hours of hard work. How you'll spend your ten thousand hours may be different from how I spend mind but you'll find as I did a clear focus and a way of getting off the existential treadmill of despair, transform your life but the age of twenty one, the average American has put ten thousand hours of practice into computer and video games when I use those hours for something more productive. How hard you hustle in the darkness determines how brightly you shine in the spotlight. To prepare for speaking to people I got really good at lecturing my furniture. My chairs were my captive audience I remember that Billy Graham. One said he got his start by preaching to alligators before he preached in stadiums. You have to start with a small stuff and work your way up. So I took every opportunity that presented itself. I spoke to classes of little kids and homeless shelters at old folks, homes, and to student clubs I volunteered to take the opportunities. Others turned down, I got lots of practice. When other speakers turned an organization or church down my said, yes I did this I several years Only the small minded person will refuse the small task for me if I had an audience of four people those enough to get some more practice to put in some more hours toward my ten thousand our goal. Jesus said that if you're faithful and a few small things, you'll be given responsibility over bigger ones Matthew Twenty five that sound good to me. Yes sometimes I did feel like surface the tragic here of Greek mythology who had to roll a boulder of a hill only to see roll back down then roll it back up again only for it to roll back down again repeatedly, I'll stubborn in my pursuit it was a great weapon against despair to keep working in spite of how I felt, which puts me in the mind of a scene from Tolkien's the Lord of the Rings in the First Book of that trilogy the Fellowship of the Ring, a band of warriors is commission travel to the ends of the Earth to destroy the evil ring of power by casting it into mount doom. During their long journey. Gandalf who was their leader was thought to be killed in the minds of Maurya in response airborne stepped up to lead the band in his stead amid his grief and despair he cried out farewell Gandalf what hope have we with you then he turned to the fellowship and said, we must do without hope let us gird ourselves and weep no more come. We have a long road. Like that trek to mount doom healing is usually a long journey. We normally don't start feeling better overnight sometimes, we must go on when we feel absolutely no hope. Our quest leads down a winding path and his sometimes fraught with trolls and Goblins and all manner of Dr Treasures. But psychological heroism is possible in such journey is were taking like Eric Gordon Frodo my set my foot upon my own path out of depression I gave them my flirtation with darkness and began to tread the road toward a grand purpose and it worked after many many years. The Dreams I had begun to despair finally came true new ones came into sight, but it all began by putting one foot in front of the other. If you allow yourself to just sit around and partly catatonic state stuffing yourself with junk food is a form of therapy and watching callous hours of television. You'll probably never start feeling better. But I. Tell You that you get off the couch and venture into the world to do something toward your goals. Things will start to change in your heart and mind if you pull yourself out of bed and get going on your dreams, that's how you'll will begin the journey to healing your broken spirit.

However bobbies Soviet hosts had different ideas of what his visit would look like planning to hold cultural trips in photo ops, not games. They had already let one of their most fearsome chess challengers behind the iron curtain. They weren't about to give him a sneak peek of the competition as well. Bobby was undeterred when his Ho said that both of their top players were on summer holiday and unable to play him indignant. Bobby demanded that he at least play one of the country's top players. His hosts eventually wrangled a game with an international grandmaster Tigrayan Petrosian, but even that concession wasn't enough for Bobby. The fifteen year old wanted to be paid for his trouble. This was where his gracious Soviet hosts drew the line. When he asked how much money he would receive for playing against Petrosian. One of his hosts snapped. Son You. Our guest and we don't pay fees to guests. Bobby was rate, but he went ahead with the match anyway he'd traveled halfway around the world to play the best, and he wasn't going to leave until he got shot. However he soon realized beating. One of the most talented players in the world was easier said than done. PETROSIAN ended up winning a majority of their informal games. which only made bobby even more furious frustrated, and let's face it probably a little embarrassed. In bobbies view, the Russia trip was a total failure. He felt that the USSR Chess Organization had intentionally undermined his position in the world. Rankings never mind that bobby was the one who insisted on playing the Games in the first place, bobby and his sister soon left Russia for Slovenia where bobby played in the Inter zonal his first ever international tournament, he bounced back relatively well from his losses in the USSR and his global rating. Rating skyrocketed as a result. The International Chess Organization known by the French Acronym Fee Day awarded Bobby with the title of Grand Master at the time fifteen year old bobby was the youngest person ever to receive that honor while rising up the chess ranks. Bobby also became the youngest ever player to qualify for the candidates tournament. This critical step put him that much closer to his goal of defeating the Russians in the world championship. Bobby was so single mindedly focused on becoming the best chess player in the world that at age sixteen, he decided to drop out of high school. His mother protested this decision, but she knew from experience that when Bobby said his mind is something. There was no convincing him otherwise. Without the distraction of school, Bobby spent his time practicing around the clock. He would tell anyone who would listen his mentors competitors and the general public that not only was he going to make it to the world championship. He was going to win the whole thing as an added bonus, this would mean dethroning his new Soviet enemies by breaking their decades long winning streak. Bite in nineteen fifty nine.

He often saw them talking amongst themselves at the tournament and grew suspicious when his Russian opponents tied their matches instead of going for an outright win by tying bobby thought they were trying to ensure better overall scores by the end of the tournament, thus improving the odds that at least one Russian would be in the top bracket.

"Prejudice that people may find offensive. We advise extreme caution for children under thirteen. In nineteen seventy, four, thirty one year old Bobby Fisher was offered five million dollars to play in a month long chess tournament, but far from being excited at the prospect, the grandmaster was offended by the low ball offer. He said how dare they offer me five million dollars from Monk Long. Match Ali received twice that much for one night. Bold words from a player to a prizefighter and bobbies gripe wasn't even. Muhammad Ali had recently received exactly five million dollars for showing up to the famous rumble in the jungle match the same amount. Bobby would have gotten from the chess game. But facts often took a back seat for the hotheaded chess prodigy particularly when his own inflated self image came into play. Bobby was also frustrated that the champion boxer was referring to himself as the greatest. He later said Ali stole that from me. I use the greatest for myself on television before he ever used it although he was an exceptional chess player, some would argue that bobbies greatness did not extend to his personality. He was once one of America's most extraordinary grandmasters bought after a long troubling decline, he went down in history as the games most notorious disappointment..

"I. How did you get on the chess? Beat in the first place? So I get really interested in these really need sports that. People are super invested in Ashwari. Kumar is an international features writer for Espn Lake if you're going to which. Of People Are Watching these chess tournaments that you wouldn't even know where that's happening in. Iceland. Or Finland, and so I had this curiosity so I was thinking so Bobby Fisher was such a huge part of chests in the US what Ron Labor is tennis. What Jack Nicklaus's to golf? That's what Bobby Fischer is to chess. Bobby Fisher of the United States will finally meet Boris Spassky of the Soviet Union in Belgrade Yugoslavia, but the chess championship of the world plus a purse of one, hundred, thirty, eight, thousand five hundred dollars, the richest prize for a head-to-head confrontation in any sport, but boxing. So who is the next Bobby Fisher? So I went to Saint Louis last year to sort of figure out what is going on in the chess world, so saint Louis has sort of become this chess capital of the country. Let's start with the basics here. What is a chess grandmaster? And what does it take to become one? Usually what happens? Is this International Chess Federation F. And they have this point systems so chessplayers. Lead different tournaments in accumulate these spines that. Gets them to a certain level of expertise, and they are then title the grandmaster, which is in fact, the highest I do that. A chess player can be awarded by International Chess Federation usually these. Players between the age of ten and fourteen, and so they go through these rigorous tournaments one after the other parents take them all over the world. And the get the title by around thirteen fourteen, and then they start to perfect the art of being perfect, just player. So you mentioned Bobby Fisher. Who is probably the most famous chess player all time? Actually is definitely the most famous chess player of all time. Who are the stars of the field today? The poster by of chess is at the moment Magnus Carlsen. Calzon is the best in the world. The youngest number one ever and no one can explain to you how he does what he does. It seems to come from another world, which is why he's become known as the Mozart of chess. He's from Norway. He sort of had this. Has this bad boy live to him? He's like interesting. He'll drop these nuggets about other players. You make jokes about his opponents. He talks trash social chicken. How do you not? He's GonNa do the same. Yeah the lack of comas is astounding. And quite disappointing. He talks acts. Yeah for sure sorta like that kind of Worcester wise. He's called the golden boy of chess. And then this. Is. Bobby Ana crew art, there's this Chinese grandmaster Ding Laren and then USA's Wesley so and Kara Nakimora. Really Good Armenia has live on Romanian so these are some of like the famous players at the moment that go up against each other all the time. So I the grandmaster that you decided to focus on with your story, the one who lives in Saint Louis is actually Italian. His name is Fabiano Caruana. Who is in? How did he get here? Fabiano Caruana is the number two seed in the world. He's an Italian American chess grandmaster. He became a grandmaster at fourteen years of age, fourteen years, eleven, months, and twenty eight to be exact, and he at that time was the youngest grandmaster in the history of Italy in the United States. E was sort of beg to be the next big thing in in US chess and he came back now. He has an apartment in Saint Louis. He lives there and he sort of boot. BOOT his life from scratch, and he was never like the big personality like Norris Magnus columnist. He's the guy that will is very chill loves video games and let us work to the talk to his justice stories about that call in the next Bobby Fisher like the next big thing. He's the one person that can actually dig down. Magnus, Carlsen in the world championship and become the next world champion. So what does? Chess match in a grand masters tournament. Actually look like. How does it play out? Okay so two grandmasters shake each other's hands. sit down across from each other is chessboard. This o'clock next to them that the are constantly looking at. This goes on for at least six hours right every day, and so during these six hours, the brain has to have most oxygen supply. Which means your heart is functioning three times faster than on any given. And because of that sustained higher blood pressure, and sustained higher level of activity by the heart and the rain, the body goes through intense physical. Energy lost during. A chess game that lasts six to seven to sometimes eat hours said.

"You. Want to say hi to everyone again. All right well you can't come in from that way and I'm going to have to ask you to go back upstairs now just because it's not A. It's not an episode where I can feature you. I'm very sorry thank you. She's banging on the back door to all right. I think maybe we'll just leave that in there because he's been quarantined episodes and everyone knows her by now. She's made appearances. So thank you for talking about kids being natural and being kids and then I know I love it. Yeah the whole thing just like everything is so natural to me and movie and like you're right about the jokes like 'cause you have like the street wise teacher and you have the book wise. Yeah I mean the formulas there but formulas are okay like the the reason that people write screenwriting. Screenwriting is super duper strict formula for the most part gaff. But like Larry Fishburne character. Like Pre Matrix. Larry Fishburne is my favorite. I loved the Matrix but before the matrix he was just a different guy. I feel like and he. He manages to pull off this role. Like they don't have that trope of I won't say what they normally call it but sort of the magical black man that comes into the movie. They danced toward that. But he's not that and the movie is much much better for that. I think yeah I agree. There's one little wonderful scene to where like Josh asks. His mom like where does Vinnie sleep like? He doesn't know like he doesn't doesn't know about him and she's like I don't. I don't know that's kind of house addressed and like his characters. Great like he definitely. I love the thing was like what's your name. Don't tell them your name your kids you know. He's got talent. Write his name down right now. I saw him when I you know that kind of thing and you know it's going to end up being the like he has to put together both styles to become the kind of player that he is. And you know he's GonNa bring his clean out too early if he wants to be deal. It's great though it all works like the Ben Kingsley. Character and the Larry Fishburne character like. He said they're headed for a collision course than away. But I think in the hands I mean Steve Sawyer we have. You mentioned the writer and director One of the greatest riders in in the history of writing movies has only directed a few. But I think in anyone else's hands this movie could have been Really Really Schmaltzy. But he has such a such a deft hand as a writer I think he he did not let it veer into those lanes and it was his directing debut obviously like it was all his kid and when. I found out about the movie. I didn't realize what Zillion is like. I was just reading the liner notes of the soundtrack. They bought it on CD at the time because I loved it and like this weird is like. I don't love classical music but I love film scores and I think it's because classical music puts me on edge because there was always. It was playing in the waiting room at like dentists and like I don't have pleasant memories associated with it whereas film scores they do and some really good ones. I dislike I love and listen to over and over weird which movies do. Gatica has great score. But you wouldn't say graphic great great movie ever but like this movie to me has one of the best scores like Jay's horoscopes great and I was reading the liner notes that he went to San Francisco state which is where I went and I did not know that so I used to do a thing back in college to where I would write a lot of actors and filmmakers stuff like that too and they would often send me back signed photos of a bunch of science photos and stuff like that too because I was definitely an autograph collector early and some some people would actually write me back and write letters and I wrote him about like how much I loved the movie. And it's my favorite film and I think at the time I was at San Francisco state or I just graduated from it and you know I just find this out and it's great and a lovable. I just wrote him and he wrote me back and sent me a nice handwritten note having a thing someplace but just basically saying he's alive meantime in San Francisco. Whatever so cut to me working at second spin here in Los Angeles which was used in new. Cd DVD. Blu Ray place like Wilshire where we would buy stuff used things then solemn or whatever. That's how I built on my collection because I get things like very cheap a lot of DVD's and BLU rays for a dollar two dollars. Whatever but he sometimes people celebrities would come in there. Because it's you know like Los Angeles and one time. This kid teenage kid was like buying something and he gave a credit card and the credit card said Steven Zaillian on it. Sounds like Steve Zillion like the director writer. And he's like yes. My Dad now's like Please tell your dad. Hello for me and tell him that. Searching for Bobby Fischer is my favorite movie. And I thank you so much Kurt who's really excited about it and then like a couple of days later. He brought Steve Zaillian with him. Like brought his way to say hello and it means like to meet him so that was amazing. I mean we just talked a minute or two but yeah it was still really cool. I guess just crazy the stories of people that come in there because one time Janas Kaminsky came in and was buying box sets and I just looked at. I didn't know it was him because I didn't know what he looked like. But I saw his credit card and Guinness Kaminsky. And it's like you you lens movies beautifully. I love so much yourself man. And he's like Oh thank you like. He was very nice about it. I didn't family and I don't think he gets it that often you know so.

"Holes here and there are movies like that but I haven't seen in periodically realizing like all right I'll go. I have the time. Now go back and check them out and see what I was missing. Yeah I've got a lot of those holes. There's a whole spate of movies from the ninety s that Because those were you know My college years as well and I certainly went to a lot of movies and I worked at the video store but I didn't go see everything that came out. Because you know when you're in college you just do a lot of other stuff and I never saw any of those movies and never saw any of the And people can't believe that. I've never seen any of the happy Madison movies. More than the spade farley movies never seen any of those never saw the the Jackie Chan Owen Wilson stuff. What were those Shanghai? Shanghai Knights didn't see those are they good. I think they're really good. Yeah I mean it's the first one is I think that's a fun comedy. The happy Madison. Happy Gilmore Billy Madison. All that stuff like I was in college. I Love Them. I still have a spot for them but I know I realize they're not great movies. I recognize that they're no why didn't see those well. It's also weird too 'cause like Tommy boy is fantastic. I think is still holds up. It's very funny but then black which was right afterwards is pretty abysmal and so weird how things can be like really hit and miss with the same set of people but yeah. I can see it like if you just missed the house. It's hard to want to go back and watch those. Those people will quote them around you all the time. Then you feel like you're a little bit yeah I think I should probably go back and watch Tommy boy. I've seen parts of a lot of these movies Was which was the golf one was happy Gilmore Maria. I feel like I've seen most of that but I never definitely never just sat down to watch that or saw it in a theater And I like Sandler. I'd certainly like what we're getting these days from him a lot more. Yeah but Now's the time. Maybe I should just go start watching all this sort of popcorn. Hollywood movies from the Nineties. Sama had such a weird trajectory to me in that like you know he all the college rose and stuff loved those movies and they first came out and like those two especially Billy Madison. Happy Gilmore like so goofy and so silly and so many non sequiturs and things that don't make any sense whatsoever. They're just bits or whatever but they're funny and they're very juvenile and then wedding singer happened and he started to get a little is a little more serious than that one. Yeah we're still comedy. But he was kind of acting a little bit in it. You know waterways silly too but then punch drunk. Love happened and it became like. Oh Sandler's actor. He's not just like a goofball right and then for a while after that he was in the Jim Carey thing of like serious stuff. Only and then you're kinda like make goofy movies again. And then he went to seriously goofy like maybe the worst goofy movies and like the Netflix wants. He was doing ridiculous six and all that kind of stuff as little. Nicky never saw it. That was supposed to be really bad. Wasn't it yeah that though is ninety s and a time capsule that is probably the most nineties movie that exists? Mike Watch it. It is so `nineties the soundtrack alone like Casandra Song to song. If incubus was a movie. That's good stuff man. I feel like we could just talk about random movies forever. Maybe you can become like a regular guest and we do some more fun stuff like this man. That'd be a lot of fun. I think we will move on to searching for Bobby Fischer which was your pick as your favourite film This is a movie from nineteen. Ninety three I think right ninety three that I saw when it came out In Ninety three I was in college in Athens. And it's not a movie that I I'm not sure why I saw it in the theater at the time because it's it's not a college movie that I would have. That would have drawn me to the theater for some reason but I got to watch it again. this morning and it's just purely magical in every way it's magic rate and I don't know why you would see in college bros. You Guys WanNa go see this father-son binding chess prodigy movie like. There's no reason you would do that. I don't know why did May I. I'm pretty sure I saw in the theater a no. I definitely saw it very soon on vhs if that wasn't the case but tell me about your first experience with the movie and why Before he kinda dig into what it means to you and why it's your favorite movie was definitely vhs. For me. Because I missed it in the theaters. Because it didn't. I looked up some stuff on it and like it opened at number nineteen. Its first weekend. Had the third highest per screen average but it was not on a lot of screens and that's when fugitive is really in the box office. And like Jason Goes to hell open that weekend so that was number two. It was nineteen so like it wasn't really widespread. I didn't think to go see it even though I love all the people in it. And especially now if you look back like character actor Bonanza. It's ridiculous but I think I read your friend it and put it in and it was just like from frame one. I was just like my job is dropped like the whole the the feel of it to me is like the most like consistently magical. There's no tone issues whatsoever. It has a tone and it just nails it and it's just like it's perfect because it has every emotion to me like us. It's it's sad. It's funny at times. It's very touching it's very it's feel good. It's kind of everything and I'm not like a chess guy. You know like I was going to ask you. That had anything to do with it. I played chess a little bit but like here. I'm just okay at it like I never bothered to learn theory or like it was just like what's his plan if somebody's to good. I'd be like well. This is pointless care about learning that much but I like just fine. I played battle chess on my and whatever else but I think it was just like I always tell people that like really. It's a father son. Movie with chess is just a vehicle for it. And that's not to say that there's all sorts of things in a too obvious. Allen's amazing is his mom and stuff too great everything with the has buddy Morgan and his sister like and also this movie gets kids right like it is right and Sony movies do not totally agree so good just like the feeler little scenes. It's it's got little beets in it so many little beats that when you watch it again you'll be like that is so good. That is so perfect and I. I think people. I've never met anybody who didn't like it if they've seen it. They're like Oh. I like that movie. They've never met this man like what a.

"So before we get going with a movie. I do want to cover really quickly. I saw on facebook the past few days you have. You have watched the bad boys movies movies that I have never seen I worked with Michael Bay one time I was at P. A. on a TV commercial that he directed and it was one of the most interesting enjoyable and surreal commercial shoots. I've ever been on. But what were those movies like they any good? You know it's weird. I've seen most everything in that era and working videos where they were. Just push it on in the background but I somehow it just never seen the bad boys movies. I was always aware of them but just never put him in. I think the first one and then when the second one came out I was like why didn't see the first one and at that time it was a little harder to Kinda they weren't playing in TV. And I really WanNa rent it or whatever so I just did finally decided I've my wife and I were just talking and I was like you know I've never seen the bad boys movie. She's like I haven't either. I was like I guess we should watch the bad boys movie. And I was the time the time. And they're on net flicks the first two and the third one just not just became rentable on itunes. So we watched and it's weird because you know I'll get people will write about my movie. Picks and I put him up there my posters or whatever and like right now. I'm doing this quarantine film-fest thing that I just decided to do ticket thirty year favorite movies movie a day. I'm not necessarily watching them now. I'm just like posting today just to be like. I love this movie and whatever but those who get some responses but the bad boys thing is caused a lot of conversation on my wall because people love those movies and I realize it's for people a bit younger than me that like the nineties were there. Hbo Movies so to speak. And so yeah. That for them was huge. The first one came out in ninety five which means I was like my second year of college and Ninety five two thousand three two thousand twenty. The trilogy's do so the first one to me like that's everybody kept saying. Watch too much to choose the best one watch you watch two annoying when you get that for series. Are things like that to like. Oh no the first buff terrible disease in twos great but you need to watch but you know I gotta I gotta suffer through terrible episodes to get to where it's good. We'll do appreciate whereas could whatever right so. We watched bad boys and like I thought it was okay like I didn't the key that has a conceit in a plot mechanic that I hate is one of my pet peeves and movies which is mistaken identity and it goes on fucking ever. It's one of those things. Where like she only will deal with Mike Lowry? And that's that's will smith and like she gets Martin Lawrence and he's like has to pretend he's Mike Lowrey and takes for back to his apartment and pictures of him of Will Smith everywhere and. She thinks he's Gay 'cause you know gay panicked still happening in the nineties. And it's three's company. Yeah exactly and three's company's fine for three's company is no three's company but sure. I can I get what you're saying. But this drags on for an hour of mistaken identity thing and I think this would have been a good senior to this ten minutes and I always get frustrated in movies where a simple conversation clears things up. I hated hated. Hated hate it when like like I always think about. Shrek is an example of like. He's about to tell her he feels and he goes to the door to knock and then she's saying something on a context and he hears that so he doesn't not. I hate various company. So much frustrates me. It frustrates me. So that yeah so watching that movie i. This is just getting frustrated with it. I was like okay. Just say like I'm his partner like he will be here tomorrow. Would you rather get shot at like? That would have sufficed but they wanted to mind the comedy out of it which then took away the logic and like I'm finally being action movies. I love them but at a certain point. When you're this going on and on and on I was just like Oh my God cleared up please. This move forward of the third act so I didn't love the first one. I thought it was fine. I didn't I thought their chemistry was good and stuff and I could see like okay. This is potential but then everybody was saying. Watch Watch Watch watch too. It's like two and a half hours long. Which movies are way too long does not need to be and it's way over the top. It's better shot better. The action sequences are more exciting. The Camaraderie is better in a sense to but it's still like very uneven still ridiculous lapses in logic per usual but that's fine. I don't mind that but then I felt like okay. We should watch three three. Just got rentable yesterday. We should complete the trilogy and watch that one and honestly I might have liked the best only because I saw them all at once. And it's a little more of a modern sensibility now. I think it's a little more grounded in logic even though it's still ridiculous but I dunno I thought it was pretty good and and I would give them all like two and a half stars out of five. That's kind of where they stay with me. You know like moments good moments but I don't have the same emotional Tashin to them. As people that were raised on them grew up with right. We'll forgive those things because it meant a lot to them when they were twelve. You know I didn't have but there's definitely little.

Since then we've gone so many of our heroes and Carol. Marin obviously huge Alan Arkin was one of my heroes. We've had him like my white whale right now is Albert Brooks. Because he's my comedy hero. Never had we've been trying. I think one year we will. I mean he's interested. It's just hasn't worked out yet but it's been crazy the amount of people we've gotten there and it's Gotten. I don't get started anymore because of the volume in which these people over I mean. Obviously there are some people that I'm a little more like I'm just going to say hello and shake their hands and that's it goodbye. I'M NOT GONNA try to strike up a conversation but it's pretty crazy. It's very surreal. Every year yeah man. That's awesome. I mean just what you guys manage to put together is just amazing and It's it's one of those festivals. This just there's a good vibe everywhere you go staying in. That hotel was fine. Because like you never know who's GonNa cruise through that lobby or be on the elevator with you and it's all very chill in you know probably because it San Francisco and It's just a great vibe. I have have a great time every single year. Who you guys keep inviting us now. We definitely well. That's one of the wonderful things about the festivals. We finally get somebody for the first time and then most of the time they wanna come back and then they become staple the festival year after year. So yeah it's cool in our our listeners. Look forward to US coming. Every January at the Castro and Janet has I've told her to. She's always pushing me to do things that I didn't think I could do and I got to do the in conversation with the baskets Tv show right. So I was on stage with Zach and Louie Anderson and just like that was a huge career moment for me. I just thank you guys for letting me be a part of it. Of course we add crazy. How Far Janet's calm? I mean like I remember back when we were doing sketch together. She was selling furniture. Like that's what she did in school. She transferred from Arizona where she's from and stuff and so she was very very shy about it like she didn't have a lot of confidence. I remember I. I wrote for her a lot because I thought she was really funny and like she. It took her a little while. Like believe it. And then once you did. She's amazing and she always has been and low behold she's the one that really took off and as as an amazing career and I still get to work with all the time I see your less here in l. a. we both live then when we're there. Cisco BECAUSE EAST SIDE. I'm on the west side which you might as well be like New York. La At that point totally. It's so far but yeah yeah. How Far West are you? I am in century city. So okay you don't have kind of near that mall. Yeah so I like it a lot. It's central west side. The only thing that's hard to get to burbank because there's no real go around or over but right. It's pretty easy to get Santa Monica. Pretty easy to get into Hollywood so I like it a lot. Yeah that's awesome in Where are you from originally? I was born in East Lansing so I grew up in Oakland Michigan. Live there till I was nine. And then my mom. She worked at Michigan State and then she got basically the same job but at UC Davis for like double the salary or whatever so it was like backup the camper. Here we go to California Davis California which is where my folks still are. Most of my formula two years are from nine through you know end of highschool and that's where I still go back for holidays and stuff San Francisco that. Yeah that that's interesting. You mentioned that age range because that's sort of where I like to talk to people about their formative moviegoing years switch for me are like ten or eleven through you know seventeen or eighteen What what movies were you into? Is this something that you were always. Because I've seen you know on facebook together and I see you have an amazing collection of movie posters that you display regularly on facebook and it's truly impressive and so I know you're a really big movie buff. Was that always your bag. Yeah I like to say I'm a child of HBO. Show me both man seventy six so like you know. Mid Eighties was really like when my film stuff started happening and my dad was like really into movies and stuff to pass down a lot of classic films so I was getting both the. Hbo Things that I watched all the time. So there's a good twenty movies or so I will defend to the end of time and other not great movies necessarily. But I've seen that. I've seen girls just WANNA have fun and cloak and dagger in the pirate movie in the last Unicorn a million times. Thea so I love those things and I get that you know for me the eighties or the sweet spot. That's all the stuff that like. I have such romance for so two speaking and then the nineties is really where I started to kind of go into exploring all sorts of film I worked at INVIDIA stores for like fifteen years San Francisco and then even down here. When I first moved here so I was really into physical media. I still have like two thousand blueberries and DVD's so which is you know they're not all on streaming people and you think that they are. Yeah I think you're speaking to the heart of many movie crush listeners because there are a lot of people that have vast libraries and take it pretty seriously. I know what you're talking about with the HBO there were HBO movies. I mean they were. They were movies they weren't made by HBO but they were movies. That I watched just incessantly just because they were on and in that same gap. I think about five years older than you. But it's it's that same window of time where H. B. O. Came into your house and between that and MTV like it changed my life fully. I mean that and it's it's funny because I don't watch cable that much even anymore even though I have a billion channels and I'll flip around. I'll just put movies on from working because I work from home for the festival sometimes. I'm just doing a lot of busy work on my computer. Like if the certain movies on cable all just leave him on in the background. I just won't ever take off. You like Mr Macho or major league. Whatever they constantly beyond Silverado like they're just things that I have and it doesn't matter what party it is because I've seen him a bunch of times. It's like Oh cool. I'll just pick it up right here. Awesome so right yeah but HBO definitely was the one I still like love. I have that theme song stuck in my head. Still Anna and Oh God so that was the best flying.
