How Do We Reconcile Our Love of Works by Problematic Creators?
"Snow. We'll know that we often refer to harry potter. Buffy the vampire slayer and they are not the only texts. We mentioned that. Have problematic creators. Many of the axes. From the harry potter films have come out to reassure fans that it is irc as to love the prophecy while not supporting the message of hate. It's creative preaches but is it really so easy. How connected are creators to that creations and has it changed in recent years with the rise of the cult of celebrity. Let's start things off a discussion of just weeden severe. A long time. He was held up. As as a great feminist icon. Making all these showers female leads and and really strong women. Do you think his feminist messages have been tarnished by his recent fall from grace or are there still valuable feminist messages to be gleaned from buffy firefly dollhouse and more. You're honest. I've actually only familiar with buffet. I not really watched file a house if you knew is so. I can't really speak from the buffy. Sound point and i am still puffy fat. I think it would be really hard not to be. I was pretty shocked when the allegations came out. And also it's extremely depressing when you read off because anything that you've held close to halt and that you've big doppler on shows like this in to other people as a standard to aspire to and then you realize that this create a really things let us a bit of a you know a knife in the heart but i feel like i think we'll be talking about this later about separating the creative from the often the artist. I think there's still a lot of stuff in buffy. Maybe not so much in the later episodes electing later seasons even but in the early stuff. I feel that for its time. It still very groundbreaking. Yeah

"He could just do what he wants. And it will. It will make someone feel so small that they'll just leave. It'd be like to what you want love. This is a ahead a little bit. But i really love when they're in the locker room and it's buffy in the locker room by herself and he's like creeping in fucked locker room but he's like two feet taller than the lockers way okay but that is interesting but also when peewee. Herman carries david arquette away like a baby. Right after merrick. Walks up to luke. Perry was also drunk and he carries him away. Baby like that about white. He care about him. I don't know that's why that's why i thought he was a fucking. Yeah i know like what like and then later when he's talking to buffy extra like right about now because like you said there in the locker room. I think it's about now. He's like yeah. No i'm a watcher. i can't do anything. It's all on you but i'm like wait. Why are you carrying luke. Perry around yeah. He definitely intervened. It was like two minutes after like no two seconds after vampire was just there. Like what are you talking about. Why are you getting involved with the her man. That's all that's also for buffy. Has to tell him. Excuse me this is a naked place I had so many problems with that. Because like yeah i was wondering why okay if he had to go and i get it. I get it giles. Merrick of sutherland would have the fuck. You wanna call yourself. I get it. You gotta talk to sarah michelle. Buffy stewart swanson. Whatever ron swanson you gotta talk. You gotta talk to the chick you gotta let her know the vamp vamp happenings going on you know you gotta let her know the sich on the fucking on the up down is what you gotta do it in the girls locker room for real bro. You just wait till she walked out like she's like she's just said s- she said doesn't naked place but i was like okay. Well it's an issue to me. That is an issue. It's definitely an issue. Yeah it's an issue to me. I don't know. I don't know about you merrick on a trust you so also. That isn't the first meeting that he had with buffy because right before that he meets up with her at a gym and he's trying to tell you know buffy the vampire hunter and she's actually like fully convinced that he's going to deliver a trust fund to her. I forgot all about lake. He's probably talking her for five minutes and like every like two minutes conversation. She's like oh so the graveyard is where i'm getting my trust fund away. We're going over there and then you're giving me my trust fund. That's actually what. I really like about this interpretation of buffy as a character if she she definitely is not as smart as tv show. Buffy she isn't but also i do feel like early on in like The show we or even just like flashbacks of like naturally maybe not really on this show but just throughout the show. You get flashbacks of what buffy was like before she found her. She's a vampire hunter and she was definitely like that kind of person. I feel like the movie is kind of like really winning it..

"So it's like if you re race your past you never learned from it and that is so messed up like that is the worst is like going through a life where you just erase the things that were hard or difficult or problematic or troublesome like. You can't do that. I would do anything to erase what these people went through like. When working with these people right. Of course i will go back into the past and be like never read these books. You know but it doesn't come down to that it doesn't come down to me. It has nothing to do with me. Other than how i be supportive today. Yes i would be supportive. Today is to be like if you had any concerns about anybody financially. Like he's fine. He's going to continue getting residuals from things for the rest of his life. It doesn't matter if we hate him or not as the same way as just weeden is. There's no way is going to run out of money even if he doesn't have a new job because he's already done so many things and there's always still going to be a royalty is like as much as you know a lot of less people are gonna read right now. That doesn't mean that you know there's not going to still be trans. Metropolitan copy is all over the place right leg. That was one of the most impactful books of the nineties. So regardless of how. I operate there are still people who will buy those books and that'll probably display him on their shelves. My brother has a trans metropolitan tattoo. Isn't that terrible. Like he's just like god but it meant so much to him right. You know when it's something permanent like that too. It makes it a lot harder because it's like oh man is on his head. He can't get that removed like that would be the most excruciating Anyway long complicated subject but the thing is is that it meant a lot to a lot of people. You can't go back in time like you can't undo it and then once again we learned from this guy because it was like no the funny jokey uncle is like being a piece shed you know like he's being sketched ball and he's like manipulating all these women and sometimes i'm a i'm worried that we don't learn you know so it's like this didn't happen because it did happen we have to learn from it right -solutely absolutely if i were to pretend that buffy meant nothing to me that would not help me be a better creator than josh sweden and that's the goal rape or a better person right a person just like none of that changes anything and also buffy is part of the cultural zeitgeist. We're gonna be talking about that forever. It's so many of the shows that i love right like it's it's such a big influence on a perfect segue to talk about. You asked for some alternative recommendations. Thank you so much. We love to talk which is supernatural tv and movies. And yeah i mean. I think that buffy has had such far reaching influence on feminist. Tv in particular. What i'm just going to never watch feminist. tv again. And i needed..

"Dawn says literally people had a rule that we don't be same room together alone. And i was just like so. How many of us have experienced that because i was like. I have experienced that. I've experienced way older dudes being really really creepy to me and doing it in a work environment to the point where it was like okay. Well the way that we're going to fix this is we'll all just be present and leg not let this guy be alone with you and it's just like well that's great but also why is he still coming to work less because if everybody has to change what they're doing just for this guy to show up in the morning that is wild you know. Yeah and and you know. He threatened godot. And there's so many layers there. And i think you know back to buffy and talking about michelle and and sarah and charisma anthony head. Who who play giles. He was like i'm devastated. I didn't even know. I thought that i was someone that everyone looked at like an uncle. But you can tell it uncle when something's wrong and no one could tell me and it makes me really think about who i am. Yeah like he wasn't even implicated in that man can actually reflect on his behaviour. Think about how he could have done a better job. And josh sweden has said bob kiss like has gone radio silent. I don't even know if his twitter pages still up like he has completely disappeared. Pretty much since. I don't know if he's done. Much since ray fisher came out with the allegations and then charisma carpenter came out pretty quickly after that but not quickly. I think there's actually a good bit of time. But she talked about how she was really grappling. With what fisher. Who if you don't play cyborg in the d. c. Cinematic universe. They call it e you and i can never remember what the eib stands for entertainment universe. And it's just heartbreaking stuff. And so for me. I can love the things i have. That are important to me like buffy and i can never look at them the same i. I really can't. isn't it the same too. Though because like the overall question is how do you absorb these medias that were created by people that you are very uncomfortable with and you might not necessarily always love their stuff. But sometimes you do and that's kind of what makes it a little bit more complicated now. I think that the thing is with that is like we can address something that we talked about. Literally on this podcast. Which is warren e list. Right leg before any of those had come forward. That is a writer who has written so many works that were you know for whatever. Reason groundbreaking like. There's a lot of stuff there you know. I could never say there's nothing they're like. This is somebody who i was reading my entire life right. So if i'm gonna say one that it actually affected my thoughts because we've talked before about how a lot of these people i'm just like. Yeah already didn't like that. Buffy meant something to me and my team years. But i was already mad about it before a lot of other people were pretty much a bucket in sales so i think a lot of us now are like oh my god. I can't believe. I watched it but i have things like that to of course there's a lot of medias that are problematic even stuff where it's like. Nothing's ever come out about this or that but it's like but you know some of the stuff that happens on..

"No matter how amazing her wonderful she is like. That's going to be tough. Yeah they pull. Chief uses what they did. They did another there for a long time. exactly. I didn't like tv usa when she yes very similar. Very similar I mean it all works out for the best because you know she's the key and whatnot but like i i understand we all are saying about throwing any younger sister right. The last man. No nobody's say that uh-huh and i think it's really important especially For when The another episode. That just mentioned it briefly the body when when buffy loses her mom I think that they have each other. That's good but But wow to put an episode in a show that has so much dying all the time. i mean people die on buffy. Right that's part of it Not just vampires like they kill people and so like people are constantly dying on buffy to have a death that can resonate so strongly is Pretty amazing and it is That is another episode i do. I don't think i've ever watched really. Yeah they're just some that just they're just the. I don't think i could go back through that. I don't think i could get i. Don't wanna get. I mean i could. I don't wanna get that head space skin. It was great. I mean like. I appreciate it for what it was but sort of that trend on twitter. The other day movies that you love but would never wanna watch again. Yeah i'm good on that particular episode. I don't necessarily ever need watch. Yeah the body is is a beautifully done episode. though and joyce's fit great character to seeing both originally in the dark about what her daughters during that has to learn that buffy is the slayer has to come to accept that interacts with a lot of the characters. In really funny ways. I love spike and joyce in the same room together because joyce's understanding and sympathetic towards spike. Yes she knew what was best for her daughter. Did we didn't really go into you. Like buffy a thing of its time there are areas where i think there's things that i think would have been differently in modern day. It's none good. As far as representation goes at has very few people of color in the cast does. It's one of those shows in the nineties that love to bury their gaze Yeah when we get that trump this is what other shows that play that created that trope because you willow comes out of the lesbian..

"And seeing like eventually when he does make the flip and even without a soul becomes. I don't wanna say good. But better and then intentionally goes to get sole so that he can be a good person. It's not shocking. When you look back through the whole trail of his story you know whereas with angel like. I don't know i never so. If a soul was foisted upon him so he had to become good and as soon as he loses that sucker man. He's right back there. They confront the fact that you're vampire. South does have a relation to your human self that you know that so when you look at like how before angel was vampire. He was just kind of he. Was you know. Just sort of a cheat in a drunk. And then he becomes a vampire and he's super evil. Spike was like this sensitive poet who loved his mom. And i think even season to like it ends with him helping buffy because he loves you still and ultimately he doesn't really want he doesn't care about like being the big bad and being evil he just wants his girlfriend back and that's kinda kinda historian throughout it. He's he's just someone who even without a soul he's still just trying to find love albeit as an evil vampire. So i think that in in the it's kind of he's built as a sympathetic character and i think the comics he actually gives up his soul at some point again briefly to to show that he can still be good without it or with it but it doesn't matter anymore to him and then he becomes a ghost in angel right. That's the one season of angels that season. I have never watched angel. I've never seen it. You're the only episode. I've watched The last one really you were watching it today. I and i came in and you were watching it and i watched it with you. It was the only. I finally went back and watched it. I held off a long time. Because i wasn't interested. The only reason actually watched it because they did spike to the show at some point. And so i wanted to know the tax context for the show so i went back and watched it. It wasn't it wasn't bad. I like angel. But i really like i think it was season five of angel that had spike on it. That was the one little season of angel that i owned was the one with Yeah i well. Spike is such pure it and that is something that is Very like human. I mean it. He's a vampire but like that That understanding of this like constant drive to get what you need at any moment and not really concerned with what the bigger picture is is in all of us and now we're not demons so we right. We don't purely act on that. But like i. I don't know i found that very relatable in spike I largely because somebody tweeted at us asking. We're gonna talk about this. I do want to talk about one character last the whole season. But i think in retrospect is maybe the worst character on the show. Thank you know where i'm going with this. Under harris yeah like that. Is i think a lot of buffy holds up for rewatch. But i think that there is an element of sandra harris. That is such a. that's a nineties..

"Oh oh yeah yeah. I was like does that stand for threatening the spelling. What is this a cool kid thing that alleyway stand for idea go there. Everyone and i mean in part because he was like kinda threatened by buffy power and so that's an essentially but He's pretty yeah. I mean that's a. I like the idea that they're that character. I remember him. I remember liking him more in the show. Really really not. That bad guy watched like he's terrible. He's yeah horrible. Like he's so threatened by buffy having powers and that's literally the reason that they can't be together is like well. I don't know you're the girl and you're strong. I don't want that. yeah i mean. I think that's probably pretty universal that most people would put season for low on their list. Anyway i was always a big fan of what after they bring. Buffy from what we find out it's heaven after season five Everything that transpired. After that. But i also strongly shipped buffy and spike over buffy angel. At that is you did too really. Yeah i did. Yeah everybody out here. We go everybody in this room. I you know it's it's it's hard with a in. In retrospect with the sp love for spike. Because i was always my favorite character like he's introduced in season two but brought back consisting lanes where he joins the scooby gang. I was always my favorite character Hands down. I loved him withdrew sylla. I loved him with buffy. But it's also like there's a problematic stuff with spike that it's really hard. To in retrospect love that relationship. Because you know there's a scene where spike tries to force himself on buffy and it's never really dealt with after that like then he goes and gets a soul and then it's you know that's fine. He has a soul now. So i don't know but it's still my favorite ship and you know i don't. I don't know if there's a non-problematic ship for buffy. Well no that's very true. That's very true. Because like i i was never a huge angel fan. I yeah i just liked spike more than angel which i think is why liked buffy and spike and buffy nine i never got the appeal of angel like his whole like broody mysterious. Like i don't know kinda paternalistic presence in her life in the beginning just didn't didn't do it for me. he's gotta be the imprint for For edward colin though right like designed. Yeah you're right so similar in design And the and i always i always like again as we talk about how the characters kind of change and evolve and have their own stories. Spike does too even though he's not human he's vampire he's he's bad like he's a villain in the beginning when you first meet him But he's also like they hint that he genuinely has love and affection for drew silla like there are moments of like he seems almost kind of Sympathetic i remember on rewatch seeing those.

"She's learned how to do this and she says it's all about emotional control and this is when faith is of issue and bobby brings up faith. Who doesn't really get along with. Willow at willow pencil starts spinning out of control like shows itself into a tree. And he's like oh emotional. Control okay at. It's just a joke like she didn't want to talk about but it's like oh man this was was it always supposed to be there. Is that how like my jaw. Sweden was over how the plot was going to develop. Because does you can find hints at what eventually happens to willow all the way back like when she starts messing with witchcraft. Uh-huh yeah i and i. I really enjoyed that. They do that so well as the show goes on. Where like the rest of the the scooby. Gang is not just like a serial type of well. We need the smart girl. We need the goofy guy. We need you know whatever like they each become something else. You know And through the introduction of new characters that stick like How often can you do that in a show like that where you bring in somebody new like on you and i like is also bad. Yeah and and but then like you redeem her enough to wear by the end. I loved anya and connected in some ways. More with anya than i did with willow well else in the universe of buffy. It's almost it's a weird sort of closed. Universe where a lot of the plot points get drawn from characters that have been in the background or have been existing the whole time but never really given their moment. Which that's my favorite thing about. Buffy is the more you watch of it the more you get the more you get the in jokes the more you understand like the whole history of individual characters because like your pops up. I think that's also she's three or season four but she is a consistent sort of side part of the cast for a while before she joins the main cast and there are a lot of characters like that like the the nerd trio that are the you think are than being bad in season. Five or six when his willow evil six like they their background characters from season one And just they're just students and buffy school but then they eventually kind of come into their own or like amy. The witch who once again is introduced one but appears consistently throughout it and eventually has a pretty big plot point in the show. I i love that that it's like you know there's not just like here's your introduced. Do character one episode. they become something important. An accident there dealt with and then they're gone like it is a very contained universe Which i think is why like some characters. Didn't stick like for instance sorry riley to seems to happen a lot to tell you i all right. That's yeah it sounds the sand..

"I think probably because they were the two episodes that you all showed me before i'd even seen the rest of buffy Once more with feeling in tabula rasa both of those. I remember watching without ever having seen another second of buffy and being very confused but loving them very much. So i watch those again. It's hard to compete. I would say that there are very few tv series that you could say have like in my mind. Two episodes back attack. That are so. I mean first of all the musical episode is i mean it's legendary. It's it's amazing it's perfect and tabula. Rasa is so funny and clever but then also moves the plot forward which is which it's like to come the descent from once more with feeling. Yeah like like to stick. That landing is so impressive into tabular also because it has that great moment in tabula rasa. They all forget who they are. Yeah so they forget that like they slay demons and vampires and that this is normal for them and that they're capable of doing this and so they opened the door and there are demons they're vampires like all scream and slam the door shut i. It's one of the funniest things. I it's just it's such a you know it's a perfect do well. I think what i mean. I know this is one of the. The held up is one of the best episodes of buffy. But it's easily one of my favorites is hush. Yes yes probably the to me. The scariest episode. Maybe the season the. I think it's the season three halloween episode fear itself. I think that one's pretty that one's scared me. Pretty pretty good to you. But hush is the hands down scariest episode of buffy Where the gentleman comes to town and they steal everybody's voices so it's entirely silent episode. Nobody has dialogue for the bulk of the episode and They're there to steal people's hearts and nobody can scream and that's a terrifying premise. And they do it so well..

Tv show started in ninety seven Ended in two thousand three So they're seven seasons and Then it actually continued With a lot of the same writers into the comic book so there was like several seasons but then the comic book as well But we're mainly just talking about the tv show. There's also a movie that came before all this. We're gonna talk about that. no it was. I did enjoy that movie back when it like. I did see it back in the day. Seen the movie really I it does not even begin compete with the series like before i had seen the series i saw the movie and thought this is kind of cool and then i saw the series i was like. Oh well okay. Yeah this is better. I guess if for some reason somebody doesn't know what buffy the vampire slayer is about. It's all right there. The title really is a girl in buffy. The vampire slayer And she's also a teen yes and she just wants a normal teen life but she was born this layer. So there's nothing that can be about that. But the thing that sets her apart from other slayers that makes her basically live log outlive. A lot of other slayers is that she has friends and friends and family are very core theme of the show. That you know. She's got people in her life. That pretend her she. She also accidentally moves to the hell mouth. Yes which is a good plot driver for the show. They're now wait help me understand. I don't remember if they address. This is there just one hell mouth on earth or they're multiple is sunny. Dale the only how. No i don't think so. I don't remember remember gets and the helm out. I don't think the house so she moved to one of them. Yeah inadvertently and then makes you know a lot of trouble for those vampires and demons. Yeah i guess a hell for using lot out and draw a lot close to it. Yeah I you know it's funny. I didn't watch buffy. I was thinking about like win. Was i wanted. I i start watching it. I didn't watch it when it was first on I like would watch it sometimes. Which is weird for me to remember that there was a time in my life. It was pre justin time when i would watch. Tv shows just if they came on out of order and skipping episodes like oh buffy is on. I'll watch it and see what's up with buffy having missed like several of the previous episodes and not even consider like. Why don't i missed. Some are would know what was going on like it never occurred to me like you should watch a show in order and not miss episodes and all that kind of stuff So i kind of watched at that way. Does anyone do that anymore i. I can't imagine that it happens that often someone does like..

Was Nyu, and so I decided that when I was gonNA turn eighteen that that was the school I was GonNa go to. So it's crazy to say now and you know when I did turn eighteen deny auditioned for nyu I didn't get in and so it was heartbreaking and all that stuff and obviously I realized I was not in TV show in not felicity.

Absolutely, and they were like no ma'am and I was like please and it's crazy because i. think when I went in there I couldn't afford like not even a Bego I think it was like seven dollars an onion Bagel. But I was like for me like walking Dean and Deluca was like walking into a museum felicity just had an extreme profound effect I. Mean even now I go back and just watch the pilot discussed. Makes me feel good. So getting a little bit into your work to words that we noticed while researching up on, you two words that positively came up a lot to describe your work either by like your own words or other people describing your work. Were dark and weird. So I was wondering what those words, those two words mean to you. I think if I'm honest both of those words like. Growing up had a negative connotation for me I. Think. People often thought I was extremely weird and you know I was a pretty dark kid in terms of the stuff that I was into I mean publicity isn't that dark but I was really into. Buffy obviously but also these. Books where like it's just you know murder and incest, and then I think a lot of my friends were reading goosebumps which I was into but then like my sister was reading just rl Stein. So I was like wait what's that and so I kind of ditched goosebumps because it was like. And got into Rl. Stein. The adult books recalled Rl Stein and so I would read those a lot and those kind of just kept my. I think I was obsessed with a lot of stuff but I didn't WanNa read the Kitty Shit. I really wanted the adult books and I fought really hard. To like, trick my parents into getting me the staff and pretending it was a PG and That's just show you the kind of kid. I was just like I was beyond curious like I wanted the content I wanted I just wanted to grow up really

Some of the highlights include Sayers. Health struggles and becoming a natural health advocate Mike Ernie's in foods, and how they impact our genes, the Apple Mono Diet, Y raw foods are important to eat at every meal and falling in love with his wife Kelly, and how this was his medicine.

If you could help, spread the word shared the show with somebody in your life, and without further ado here we go with Sayer G. Hello Sayer welcome to the PODCAST. Yeah really say to have you on the show. This has been a long time coming. And I really loved your new book regenerate, and in there you share your story, which wasn't familiar beforehand, and and it goes all the way back to childhood, and the sickness that you went through as a kid and a teenager, and you share a whole bunch in there that you went through such as money having your tonsils removed, and you ended up having hip surgery later on, and it goes on and on overweight unfit. You ended up I think it was about at age seventeen. You had surgery on your sinuses, so you went through quite a bit. And my question for you is what was the catalyst behind all that well yeah I think for me. Getting into natural advocacy was allies were destined sesame given. Experience by. Acute episodes the Bronco Asthma you know. They checked me up enough in US multi fight lungs working. So from very early on I just. I struggled allies, and then came later in my life to ernest on nutrition, exercise and mind body practices so ultimately. That was guest that I felt so much because than it needed a passions. WanNa share you know the alternatives. Natural Approaches that I know can in some cases provide so much humor well. Let's talk about that. Turning point and I know this took place in your first year in college so. I become exposed to alternative health ideas. Well, you know my sister was someone who is naturally inclined to health food stores for example, I was way more conventional member over time I started to. Like the of that way than starts looking to literature that you'd find in these helped stores and taking on raw shrewd in the mucus diets, as it was known by Arnold era and a member thinking well. I've never not eaten. Save Council products. What would happen if I ate raw? And within three days of just going ahead and eliminating house, my asthma went away and never came back. It wasn't so raw. Fruit is, but the BUFFY Diet says exclude common engaged delicious. Western foods such as cow smoke novas like my. Moment, and when you hit that piff any moment, obviously, you've been going through a lot for so long. What was your initial reaction? Were you angry that you've been through so much? And you're just finding this information now or obviously? You're excited about digging in deeper in seeing what could come a vet, but talk about those initial reactions when you start to feel better over the course of a few days. That's such a great question because I think it's true that while I was elated excited, because for the first time in my life I didn't have to carry an inhaler around and think that you know. My body was fundamentally cursed. You know cloak in I was shocked to fine that you know something as simple as excluding cosmic for my genetics type would have prevented me from the Medical Mary around downward cycle. You know that I went to some level. There was a part of me that became. Hannah triggered to like oh my. What is my parents? Know this you know. You. Pour me. A. Journey retakes. One of these starts reclaim. Our health is you do? Realize there is a bit of. archetype underneath some of the symptoms. You know would've been more convenient for me to say. The doctors are right. This pathway humid of causes it, but you manage symptoms by ways. You should thank us for saving your last person. Sandwiches that the way we eat in this country. Is Disease Camale, N detectives and I'm barely one of the things that happened for me to sort of took the red pill that speak event. Lady but I was also like Gosh. We need to change things people now. There are these ways to heal known. About and this big shift in your life in your health happen when you're early in college as I mentioned. What were you taking at the time? The time you know, it was sort of just exploring the why started out actually went to university as an art student, and Mason Gross and I found it a little bit more fizeau. I ended up. Just go to college proper and. Just. Five years trying out pretty much anything that interested me. It ended up getting a degree in philosophy, so it's like a deep expiration time both in an hour.
"buffy" Discussed on The Deconstruction Workers
"The university professors spend a lot of time talking to each other about popular culture in academic journals and academic conferences. The problem. With that is you. Don't go to academic conferences. And you don't read academic journals and I WanNa talk to you. Some of the most brilliant thoughts in America about popular culture. Never get to be heard. And I'm on a mission to change that brilliant people fascinating conversations. I'm Christopher Bell. And this is a hard hat area. You're on with deconstruction workers. Good morning good afternoon. Good evening wherever it is you are. This is the deconstruction workers podcast. I am Dr Christopher Bell and we are going to be jumping back in today with part two of our two part roundtable episode on Buffy. The Vampire slayer I will be joined today by. Dr Loren Camacho are independent scholar from Cleveland? Ohio and Dr Dustin give you a doctor don't get take. The doctor Thug Economics Dustin Dunaway from Pueblo Community College Chair of English in communication at Public Community College Public Colorado. If you have not listened to part one of this two part episode you're GonNa want to go back and do the homework. Do a little of a legwork and get caught up to where we are today and also keep in mind giant spoiler alert. We are spoiling things left and rights. If you've never seen buffy the vampire slayer and you intend to you this is probably not the episode fair. You've had more than twenty years to watch it though. So we're not gonNA feel too bad true. You have no excuses. It went off the air seventeen years ago so you. You've got a little time to play catch up. We're going to jump back into this conversation at the end of the last episode. We were talking about conic. Buffy episodes we latched onto once more with feeling but there is another episode. That is very much iconic. And that is hush. The it's like the opposite of once more with feeling because once wermuth feeling is the musical episode. Hush is a silent episode. And the only one to be nominated for an emmy. I believe no kidding. I'M SUPER INTO DUSTIN ABOUT HUSH. True about why he did hush as I understand it. He wanted to death outside of the box in terms of what he can do on television and do something more cinematic and he always thought of pure cinema as being mostly silent without dialogue so I think he wanted to challenge himself in that. That's pretty generous. I think what happened? Was buffy. Got A ton of criticism in its first and second seasons for relying on a bunch of dialogue. That is fairly unrealistic. These characters don't talk like high school kids these characters talk like a really good dialogue writer. Writes them really dialogue and the criticism of the show was that these kids can act so is not really well put together? The only thing that's getting by on is Josh. Weeden snappy dialogue and so he creates this entire episode with no dialogue in it to shut everyone up about the way he writes dialogue. And that's the Laura I was talking about. I had heard that he was responding with a big giant middle finger to people who said it was only getting by on being snappy. Yeah wouldn't surprise me. I think the official story is he just wanted to stretch. But Yeah I can definitely imagine especially since one of the other criticisms in the very early where that Sarah Michelle. Gellar wore skirts. That were too short so that I just suck up my middle finger for people who couldn't see that because this is a podcast like excuse over. Interestingly enough I am watching this elevation series with my fourteen year old daughter and three episodes in my daughter turns around and looks at my wife and I says isn't buffy a sophomore in high school and I said yes she is and my fourteen year old daughter unprompted from my wife and I said us how come her mom lets her dress like so. Maybe there's like this much accuracy to that criticism okay. Sure it's fine like I get it but it's nineties. Tv IF YOU'RE NOT GONNA put them in that you're not meeting its this is. This is the whited her mind he gets sexy in the third Harry Potter. Movie argument all over again. You have to lead your audience where it is. If you're trying to do something cinematic Lee different so in for those of you who know me. I hate that movie with every fiber of my soul because I am Harry Potter scholar and Freakin hate. That Adaptation Chris. Disagrees also schooler. It is my favorite one so they but you also are more of you have way more experience studying and working in cinema that idea and I don't and that's why I am. I think so grouchy about it. And you are way more understanding and like get a get why I just hated is all. I'm saying I think. That's part of like part of why buffy and even willow who is conservative and shy in her way is still. She's only conservative in shy within. The confines of what is considered sexy and appealing for a teenager in the nineties. I mean you're going to get relatively good looking. People who are in these roles are not. They're not pushing the boundaries that much but that's the trade off of locus of power. Right I talk about this quite a bit on this. Show about the locus of power. Where in order to get something you've got gotta give something right so in order for these women to get this power particularly physical power the power to beat people up that buffy has. She has to look like Sarah. Michelle gellar right or just to be completely sexually unattractive in every way like Brienne of Tar. Tarzan game of thrones. It's one or the other. You can't have both. You can't have physical power without giving up sexuality in one way or another if you're a woman on television particularly in the nineties and on the show as willow gains more power and also as she gets older she gets considerably sexier. She gets portrayed as considerably. Sexier she is sort of mousy in cute in the first season and by the time the fifth season rolls around six season rolls around. She has been portrayed as much. Sexier much much sexier in the context of show one of the interesting things about this conversation. We've been having as an our last episode. We were talking about once more with feeling. In which Don for the first time becomes somewhat sexualize? And if you're like me when I was growing up watching the show I mean obviously he's Sarah Michelle Gellar. Looks like Sarah Michelle Gellar beautiful sexy woman in the second season when Alyson Hannigan gets to kind let her hair down and be a sexualize character it does feel very empowering just because she suffered is kind of this wallflower and to to see her kind of grow up a little bit. It felt like yeah good for well. Xactly what I was just talking about but then in a looking back once I see dawn being sexualize and she becomes kind of like my little sister. It's like Whoa what's going on here. Hey it's kind of funny. The way that Easter to interpret things based upon how long you've been with the characters because with flat. I mean I'm fourteen so this clean things illegal and just the you know the gyrating hips when she's being and dancing and we did the same thing to Arya. Stark on game of thrones right. She could stab up one hundred thousand people as a fourteen year old and we were totally fine with that but you know in the last season when some stuff goes down the whole country was like you can't do that and she was a grown ass woman at the time not fourteen year. Old Michelle Trachtenberg. It's that really great meam about Little Mermaid where it's like watching Little Mermaid in my late twenty s and you're like young lady you are not going to marry a man you just saw for the first time like. Oh my zipping I bring up in my own Disney classes all the time. You know it's important to remember that the very first thing that happens in that movie is that Ariel turned sixteen. She has been sixteen literally for the duration of this movie. That's how long she's been sixteen years old. So maybe we can get some perspective as to who we allow to marry but we were talking about hush but yes in hush. It's it's an episode where there's a curse befalls town and no one can talk and they all have to go about the solving of the problem without using spoken language. And if you have never watched hush the villains in hush are so cool it's still reversed episode of Buffy the Vampire slayer that's legitimately terrifying legitimately scary most of the episodes of Buffy as I am finding out from my fourteen year old as we watch the villains are Kinda dumb. Hokey like the whole of season one year. Like I'm supposed to be terrified of the master. Excuse well we just passed the season two episode of reptile boy the fraternity that has the snake monster living in their basement and she was like. That's the most ridiculous thing that that is that tops praying Mantis Lee from the first season tops in fairness even even buffy fans consider reptile boy. Pretty low down on the think I mean it seems to me guys like when it came to the villains in particular until they had a better handle on it almost went evil dead two with it that they let it be silly until they got a handle on what they could do and what what level of terror they could expect from people versus what level of they just had to lean into it being kind of silly or has to do with network sensors to. I mean that's one of the reasons why when Vampires are staked in buffy. The Vampire slayer they turn into dust. They're not just dead bodies laying all around. You don't glad that's right. And that's one of the ways that they could get away with so much. Violence is to number one have consequences which is problematic in of itself but also not seeing all the blood and Gore and things like that that they just turned the Duston. Go Away take the fangs out of it. If right which is another reason why the villains in hush are so scary is because we actually see them carve out a kid's heart and put it in a jar and that's I. This is one of the episodes that I always show in my communication classes because we talk about nonverbal communication a lot so I always try to prep them like. Hey you're going to see some stuff. I just want to warn you right now. If you need to turn your head it's fine but also Did show on Broadcast Television. So it made it through sensors. So we're just GONNA have to deal with it here if you watch even five minutes of game of thrones you'll be are. It's such an interesting conversation about where the line is between this being a show for teenagers and the networks understanding what that means and hush is not the first or the last time that the television network failed to give teenagers the amount of credit that teenagers deserve to get in terms of what they're able to process hush was scaled back a little bit because they didn't want it to be too scary for network television at the same time. Kids are watching like song right and also in terms of you know the sexuality and and and so on and so forth I think the thing. The show is very clever at was sneaking stuff past the censors in that same episode of Hush. There are jokes. There are the beginnings of a lesbian relationship. There's some pretty intense violence. There's all kinds of things that were rhetorical sleight of hand. Where Joss gets you looking in one direction so that he can do all this other stuff over here and the show got very good at that over the course of its I mean we we look back on it now and a lot of these things especially with the the willow and Tara relationship seems silly in two thousand twenty but you have to remember back in two thousand two thousand one ish. He had to fight tooth and nail to get every single piece of willow and Tara onscreen. I mean. They weren't allowed to kiss for two or three seasons it. It does seem absurd now but you have to remember what he was up against in terms of the network censorship and one of the ways because we were talking about once more with feeling..
Emily Nussbaum: What I Wore When I Interviewed at New York Magazine
"For the most part all the women on this podcast were handpicked by me. On behalf of Glamour Women we find fascinating or nostalgic or brilliant or just women. We Wanna get to know a little bit better emily. Nussbaum was at the top of the list. Emily is the television critic for the New Yorker where she's worked since two thousand eleven and in two thousand sixteen. She won the Pulitzer Prize for criticism. Her voice is authentic and accessible and she's been described as a singular writer in two thousand nineteen. She released her first book. I like to watch arguing my way through the TV revolution. The book examines the changing landscape of television while effectively defending it as a medium with taking seriously it includes essays on everything from buffy. The Vampire slayer a show. That's been pivotal emily's life as well as the Sopranos Vanna Pump. Rules scandal true detective and sex in the city. Emily also tackles the question of whether a viewer can separate art from the actions of problematic creators in a timely me to ask a when I asked if she'd be willing to be a guest on the podcast. She seemed genuinely surprised saying she doesn't really consider herself a stylish person. I explained that the goal isn't to only feature quote fashion. He says that would be so boring. I'm so glad she agreed because our conversation was good so good in fact that we ran out of time and had to wrap it up just as we were digging into one of my favorite topics. Carrie Bradshaw not to worry. Though she still had plenty to say. I also asked emily to give her professional opinion on whether my mother and father were absolutely terrible parents for letting me watch twin peaks at nine years old which he happily did. Here's our conversation so I want to start by asking you. Which is what everybody that comes on this podcast. Which is what are you wearing right now? Oh I hadn't thought about this I I'm wearing black pants That fit well. Which is the difficult thing for me with pants. and I'm wearing some sort of gray tank top in a black sweater and a necklace that I really like that. I bought it a museum shop. That is where I generally buy jewelry And I don't remember where I got these things but they're kind of distinctive simple silver earnings during your earrings a lot. Yeah I like the erase striking. So I'm wearing good jewelry but I'm wearing completely neutral. What you wear to New York office kind of thing which is a black sweater and black pants. Oem Wearing kind of Nice sneakers wearing these these sort of Weird Green Corduroy Sneakers Love Them. And because the name of the PODCAST is what? You're going to talk about what you were when you interviewed for Your Job at New York magazine so I think this was around Two Thousand and three or two thousand four and at the time I was working as a freelance writer and I was writing for places like The New York Times magazine and doing both short pieces and long pieces. But I mainly thought of myself as a writer and Adam Moss who had worked at the Times was the new head of New York magazine and he was hiring new staffers and he called me to see whether come in and I thought they were gonNA call me to be a writer there which frankly and tells a different kind of clothing. 'cause writers are often shrubs But he actually wanted me to come in to interview to be the editor of the culture section. It wasn't something that I was sure I wanted to do. I was very ambivalent about it so I sort of winged it when I went in for my interview in a way that I don't normally for things and I'm convinced I got the job because of the clothes I wore which is true of almost nothing else in my life but I somehow put together an outfit. That was stylish showed my genuine uncaring about whether I got the job which is often the right combination for a situation like this and it was more stylish than I actually am so what I wore is dark blue jeans that fit right in for the period were sort of the right style gene because at the time they were kind of they had that sort of low weight but for for whatever reason I was actually pulling it off. Because I don't really have a body that works that great and that kind of jeans but I had good ones but the main thing is I wore. I had a a blue crushed velvet sort of waistcoat jacket that I had bought vintage that had silver buttons and my mom had given me these actually quite nice low ankle boots that were kind of a brownish yellow alligator skin or something that had stacked heels wouldn't stacked heels those two items actually looked good like they were distinctive. Strange Somewhat Bohemian. Downtown things and wearing pants always gives me a stronger sense of authority in a situation like this. I think I normally would have gone to a job interview honestly wearing an alien skirt a simple top jacket to try to look professional. But I think partially because I genuinely kind of didn't want to get the job or at least was doing it. I know that sounds almost disrespectful. 'cause it was such a good job but I was ambivalent embitterment about becoming an editor instead of a writer. So there's this part of me that was just like whatever like I didn't really rally right so I so I sort of magically managed to hit on this outfit. That kind of looked made me look way more downtown selective idiosyncratic and actively stylish and a young woman way and it went in and I have to say and like The other thing is Adam. My old boss and Hugo Lindgren. Who was also interviewing me They are guys who actually care about fashion in different ways and I walked in and I actually saw that they liked my clothes like this sounds stupid but the dumb way in which I was like. I've hacked this because so many things are stupid first impressions and there was this way in which because I looked kind of free wheeling and like I'm matched the part or something that helped anyway. I did get the job and initially said that I would take it for three months because we were just putting together the prospectus of the magazine and then ended up staying there for many years and Adam is an incredible boss. It all worked out. I never dressed like that again. I was GONNA say if he was hiring me in any way as you know perhaps delusional suspected that I was just sort of acting a role that worked for the job interview after that. I did not wear good clothes to the office. I did try to dress up a little bit. I went on a shopping trip with my I think he was. We were dating. I married my husband who's very stylish and has great taste and we were living in the West village and we went for this walk down. I think Greenwich Avenue had a couple of different shops and so I went out and I sort of went on a shopping trip to try to buy a few items. That seems like an editor at New York magazine would wear these items. When did you buy do any of the things were because I don't know brands but I bought some things that were kind of medium pricey and seemed like statement things I was never able to use them or put them together? But I do remember the first day I went in the office. I mean my entire impression of an office like that was like thirteen going on thirty hundred percent. I so I was trying to. I was trying to raise my game to ROM COM level which remind notion of medium also. Yes exactly the truth is I mean. People dressed in black in New York and a lot of people who are in fashion dress very neutral and the one time I ever wrote about fashion. I was really struck by the fact that I was like wait. This is not made up of butterflies like this is a lot of thirty to fifty year old women wearing black and like simple expensive chunky statement hearings or something. It's not a situation in which people are trying to stand out. Visually so are wearing off the runway necessarily says gallons and no. I think that's what people think of fashion back. I'm trying to remember what else I bought. And then at one point when I early in having that job I also attempted to have power lunch as a sort of a joke with a friend at Michael's and midtown because he's like a fun thing to do and on the way to that. I bought some bought some clip on earrings. That had on the way to the line. Yeah on the way to the lunch. I literally was like I'm GonNa like it but again it was sort of as a joke because my friend and I were like. We're now like media. People are power lunch area. They they were like strange. Chunky rhinestone earrings with red and blue stones in them that were round clip bonds rather than dangling or they were sort of you know punch in the face upper east side ish food jewelry of some kind so I remember. I stopped at the store. So those were my power. Close is basically what I'm saying for New York magazine. Are you somebody? Now that considers yourself AH shopper. No I actually don't like to shop. My husband likes to shop though so I often will go shopping with him and he will pick out things that are good and he's responsible actually for some of the best things that they own because I mean we'll go to a vintage store and he'll pick out something that I personally wouldn't have picked out because I'm just a highly pragmatic shopper. I just I find it boring. I don't like going through the racks. I don't like spending money and I also don't like searching for bargains so I'm like the worst combination of ten no India and I and I don't really enjoy changing and changing rooms and trying various things on and all of that kind of thing but I do like having some nice clothes so I go either with hammer or with my son. It's actually fun. I used to shop with my son when he was a little younger and then he would read things one to ten so that was fun. That's does he do that now? Yeah I mean he's he's we haven't gone shopping in a while I mean and also he's he's about twelve now so I don't think when he was eight he actually he's. He's much more interested individuals than I am so he he had a lot of opinions but he's also very enthusiastic so pretty much. No matter what I tried on. It was from eight to ten. So that's a good person to shop
William Prince on 'borrowing from future happiness' to write new album
"Is voice is like the low rumble of thunder storm on the prairie. His songs a glimpse into the heart of a man who's lived through the broken to come out hole on the other side. William Prince is an initial based singer and songwriter from PEGUIS FIRST NATION IN MANITOBA. His just released the much anticipated. Follow up to his Juno. Winning debut album earthly days. His trajectory is taken him from small stages two major concerts and tours all over turtle island and abroad including opening for the legendary Neil young an icon. Buffy Sainte Marie his new album reliever was recorded in Winnipeg in Nashville and is out now. I'm so pleased to welcome. William Prints back to unreserved for an extended conversation today. Hello My friend Rosanna. How are you? You look a little travel where you good. Oh yeah is it The friendly way of saying how terrible I think it's just the hat I lucked out and I found a half that fits my head and I wear it everywhere now. So that's that's the big change. You look fantastic. No thank you thank you. So let's start with the new record. What inspired you most on this album? Oh boy that That starts the conversation years ago You know Reliever was was born in in stages it was written at so many different times. It was written in real time panic. I say for some part of it. It was written halfway through reflection and then finally at the point of revelation. There there's so many different points Throughout this album that I'm really proud of making it through and being here where we are today on the other side and reliever was really just about collecting and documenting the songs. I was writing while I was going through. You know one of the harder times in my life so far so you were going through some stuff the loss of your father the end of your relationship finding your place as a father to your son. Wyatt what does the name Reliever mean to you? Reliever really stems from the idea of course of treatment. Almost an anti an antibiotic in a sense. You Know I. I think of the songs What they've done for me over time dealing with those those things like grief and separation and total change in one eighty of environment from this point of is this working. Is this something I'm going to be able to do? Is there a place here for me? to now being at a place where. I find myself doing this all the time. My responsibility is become to to be a good dad and be good to my family and make art and it's it's really An incredible thing so that was the faith. I was Kinda holding onto borrowing from your future. Happiness is what I say. You know. Having that faith for win the time would come now. And we'd have this record. I'd be passed the things I was working through and Able to celebrate them rather than live in a state of grief reliever was was born in the concept of love to I. I was thinking about how the greatest Major League. Baseball pitchers in the world will throw a few innings until they're retired for the game and the relief pitcher takes over and says I I got this. I thought you know on those days. When we're with our significant others those we care about say we're not throwing the best game and then that other person can kind of take over so is really borne inside baseball? Metaphor that That grew in complexity and I found the title track itself kind of in the middle of everything and it really started to tie the two halves together. The part where I was living in real time making a diary to my son showing him and letting him know where I was during this time. His infancy And then ultimately showing him that though I was going through this really difficult time Your your dad stayed steadfast and resilient and made it through and I hope that's the kind of man Human BEING HE TURNS OUT TO BE IN THE END William the beauty of your lyrics or that you are so vulnerable you give so much of yourself in your music. Why do you share so much with people? WanNa I think it's what we're most in need of Today is the willingness to be vulnerable insincere. You know more than ever. There's more to consume and more to get over faster than it's ever been. I think the things that still exist amongst the human condition are those themes of love and you know making it through the everyday life and Going through those challenges that we will encounter over the course of our individual lives. I came into the term Saunder over the past few years where you sit and imagine that the complexities of every other individual in the world has a whole history just as long just as an in detail just as thorough just as grand as your own and I think that's a lot that's a lot of hard drive space. You know a lot of files out there to pick through and you know there are a lot of them that are similar from person to person and the ones that are easier to deal with me are speaking about my family and I have no problem because this was my way of coping. This was my chance to deal with these things face on was to write about them in real time and do my future self a favor that I knew that I've survived everything up until this moment and I will continue to survive and thrive in the environment that I've created for myself now and I'm that's a huge privilege. That's that's really something so I chose that while I'm here while people are listening. I'm going to give the most honest and forefront representation of what I feel what I what I'm living through and hopes that it. Will you know? Bring US pass this more superficial more artificial age and get us back in touch with with vinyl records and phone calls and and things like that slowing the pace to appreciate. Just how beautiful human condition actually is now earlier? You had said that in creating this album you had to borrow from your future happiness. What did you mean by that? Well it's really all that faith is I think is I. I was going through like you said the the loss of my dad and Estrangement and not really feeling like I was In a place to ever really even have a relationship again. I thought I'd just be an artist and a great dad now just travel and in a low point truth truthfully. I. I don't want to understate. Just how tough things were I went back to to Peguis are? I lived with my mom for a year. You know I I. I worked on the PEGUIS radio to keep my mind from going crazy and the slower days and drove to the city. Every day to see my son is very opposite. A glamorous was quite testing. It's like what have you done? You derailed yourself from A Post Secondary Education to pursue this dream and so borrowing from future happiness. Was this idea that I would look to the future when the darkness breaks knowing that. I think there's going to be a time when I get to play music all the time to be a recording artist and share my story with you know auditoriums Or even town halls even fifty people at a time. I knew that there was part of me. That wouldn't let go over this dream that I was chasing to be here to to do this for a living so I I with the good faith that it'll probably work out. I think it will work out. I believe enough that it will work out. I'll just watch it unfold so that now when we're here when you're here opening for the Neil Young's of the world and and travelling in. It's not normal to be applauded by thousands of people a Week. You know not everybody gets to to have that and it's really sending the message that my music belongs here. My voice is being heard. And that's everything you hoped for as a songwriter. So I'm as happy as I imagined if not more for certain. This home actually sounds Fairly optimistic you seem more rooted. You've gained some wisdom in the last few years. What do you attribute to that confidence like the the difference? Now I I I was joking that When I made earthly days it was like I hope nobody minds that I'm doing this. You Know Jade Bird says the last thing. The world needs is another narcissist so going from that I wonder if anyone will even hear these songs other than my family and myself and I'll drive around with a CD in my car. And finally feel like I did it. I got an album and I was hoping to to make it outside of Manitoba now. It feels like you know we're GonNa go everywhere but the time it's it's all said and done and to have that in my heart to know that there there's a humble audience waiting for a follow up. It gave me the peace of mind to go into the studio with Scott again and Dave and be in Nashville being when pig. Bring these two pieces of the project together and Believe in my songs from the start not waiting for them to be validated. After I I trusted I knew I'm aware of my abilities. And I record songs and play shows. I was trying to prove that so hard for so long and show that I'm you know Just as valid a songwriter artist as anybody else. And now that we're here. I can just focus on bringing about the Best Art. I can create

Egypt going to extreme lengths to quash dissent
"Meanwhile in each of the government has taken more than two thousand people into custody after recent protests their industry international calls it the biggest crackdown yet under the Egyptian president the BBC selling appeal joins us from Cairo hi Sally hello how are you doing. tell us more about these mass arrests in each of two thousand why have all of these people some of them children as I understand it been rounded up that's the big question and I don't think anyone can give a clear cut answer to that but it only goes back to September the twentieth when a hundreds of protesters took to the streets in Cairo in Buffy's square the birth place of the twenty eleven revolution and in other parts of the country they were calling on presidency seat to step down and the also trumpet again as the military rule old together and this my own means was unprecedented since president CC came to power in twenty fourteen no professor could ever set foot in Buffy square the government has severely restricted the anti regime protests so that was a day to remember and I was there and I've heard the people chomping and they were really angry they they called on the president to leave power and the government seemed to respond with a very heavy crackdown because in the days to follow hundreds of people have been arrested according to human rights lawyers was we've been speaking to nearly two thousand but some of them have been recently released we don't have the exact number yet but we know that a large number of them have already been released and we're talking about journalists activists politicians even lawyers who are representing detainees well during their work alright you mentioned people taking to the streets for the first time since the new regime has taken place and and why they're doing it there was something a building contractor who spoke out about what he thought was I really corruption can you tell us a little bit more about him and and spark of the protests yes this is true he he was the trigger and he is a building contractor who flew to Spain recently and he's living in a self imposed exile he published a number of videos on social media that went absolutely viral in Egypt some some people say his name is Muhammad Ali and some people here in Egypt are even saying that he has become a replacement for Netflix because everybody's watching him and he said that he's been working with the army in construction projects for nearly fifteen years and he uncovered some details about the mega construction projects kind about by the government and he said that the president sees himself and top army generals waste millions of Egyptian pounds on building lavish presidential palaces that the country does not need as well as mega construction projects that won't benefit normal Egyptians and this comes at a time when many people here are living from hand to mouth the government has imposed also austerity measures that isn't that are hitting a lot of Egyptians and according to the district's released by the government recently nearly one third of the Egyptian of Egypt's population are living below the poverty line so when Muhammad Ali started talking about the details of the construction projects this has enraged a lot of Egyptians actually and perhaps this is what really push them to take to the streets flooded small just Mohammed Ali himself it's the diet living conditions they have been going through in recent years. have any of the protesters been charged with any crimes I've been talking to some families of those who are being interrogated now and they have been reprimanded in custody for nearly fifteen days as some of the charges I remember them a sister of one of those behind bars told me that there are there is a cliche list off charges that includes protesting without permission spreading false news belonging to a terrorist group these are the main charges and one of the most interesting things that I've heard from lawyers that security forces they they arrested even passers by people who do not with it and take part in them in the protests we just happened to be there for some reason or another and the end of the arrests continued in the days to follow so it wasn't just on the twentieth of September but the old also on the days that followed and this is why many lawyers are calling them random arrests that have nothing to do with the protests but they just want to intimidate the normal Egyptians that's B.

Is Amazon Profitable?
"Is Amazon profitable and the really short answer is yes it is actually it's quite profiled profitable stuffing two thousand fifteen going forward. Amazon is being consistently a profitable throughout history. If you've been following damn business model one of the critique that the company head head over the years is that it was striving always at very high valuation nickel bed to each earnings but the problem is if you're looking at Thomason just from the earning owning standpoint. Probably this was the wrong perspective. Because of course the company has been using a strategy combined operational and financial strategy that we can catch machine and really this is about the generating operating cash flows for for for the business even though running at very low net margins so so it means that you're running with very low net profits now betty few highlights from from from singer so yes. Amazon is definitely Prov flu profitable as being so consistently starting from two thousand fifteen and if you look at the numbers from two thousand Eighteen Amazon actually passed for the first time at ten million in profits which is a lot whoever when we look at the Amundsen we need to understand the Amazon business model. It's very diversified. Rennell company an and you know when when we talk about the debt company that comes in with talking about the bunny which has many business models we dean so we know we are not just simply if fighting saying Amazon is an ECOMMERCE is way more than the Tomlinson is an e commerce is a lot from business model it has within Amazon days another platform which is called. Aws this which as we would see as being the main contributor or the province because eight rance with different economics compared to traditional Amazon business model and then he does other you you know Cam prime and you know the other cities like Protesting services offered the bathroom which are tied together in a way Batuta also running. They'll Saran separately because again. Amazon is a huge company so if we look at the the profits from the province simbone it's very important that we don't get just too much focus on buffy salon. I mean it's very important that we look at the bottom line. Any business model is to be able to be viable back at the same time we want to look at another viable which is Betty Betty Betty important for any business. It's cash it's actually not not even catch the the bank is actually the cash that you can generate for the abbreviation means. Do you have available cash at the end in the short term that you can reuse it to grow the business and you can reuse in the short term to make sure that you have contraction for the business and Amazon is being a going. It's cash consistently and actually a successfully throughout the years so it has always been able to to actually ensure as at a certain amount of short-term cash through tweets ovation stance also to the fulfillment centers the original deficiency through through the fact that in any case Amazon gets money from customers right away and then he pays you know the the the senators in in let's say thirty or sixty days so they kief chiefs said that the gifts that the company advancement advancement in in dental financial resources which Dan the company has to get back to those sailors but yet it had this timeframe keeps Amazon the ability to to invest the money and then make mining them pay back to you know those those practices I mean we we cannot get the the Amazon uses each celebrity du Du actually sort of expand the timing takes to pay back to its supplier something that's that's a legitimate concern weekdays at Amazon each company that takes advantage over other that source of concern. I mean it's it's I used platform mm-hmm and I think when when you're in business fitting Boston to highlight that you need to options for your business even when you are actually building up as more companies more more business unique understand the logic of this platforms because a when you're a drone within those platforms than chances are is that you donate options and then you need to follow what Thomasson thus which is not the best scenario. If you have a business you following the lead Obama Zone and you don't have options you are in bed sedation. You better understand how you create you don't distribution platform to enable an an answer your own distribution of products and then of course use other platforms like Amazon as noxious and not a as a primary option in my thinking in terms of business but having said that if we look at the reasons for two thousand seventeen eighteen the the major contributor has been Amazon. Aws that I covered a pre-match from any perspective on for week embiid come. I'm GONNA leave awesome references at some links on these notes and really Dave look recent celebrating income out for two thousand eighteen free since did did contributed to over seven billion overeating king in operating income considering over two billion overeating reading income in two thousand eighteen so it's a it's a UJA teach contribution but as I said since two thousand fifteen going forward Amazon has been consistently a profitable when for the first time the company posted in two thousand fifteen number six million Improv is actually there was really. I think two thousand thousand nine two thousand ten when the company posted this province but you know I'm seeing these this was the year that they were posted consistently growing growing very fast. We defend different economics thanks to Amazon. Aws because many say that Amazon has been running always with negative province in reality he look at years from two thousand three two thousand eleven actually the company was running with Posey Ovitz and then you know there were a couple of deep in two thousand twelve and then doesn't fourteen and then again posting a
Being Multiplatform Is the Only Way to Stay Alive With Fader's Andy Cohn
"Welcome to the digital podcasts and brian morrissey this week. I'm joined by andy kern andy as president and publisher of the feeder which is celebrating its twentieth anniversary serie any welcome. Thank you for having me brian. It's great to be here okay so twenty years. You're not a failure at the time though you were at spend competitor right. Yes i was at spin and then i was at the source magazine yeah right around the time. Is this a different era for magazines right. It sure was so lots changed since then but the fighter has continued right and still magazine bimonthly but now i would guess it is a multi-platform brand. Yes it is multi platform because that is the only way for us to you. Know stay alive okay. I think i got there. I've been there sixteen years now. <hes> and came up through the more traditional you know the time period of print magazines were revenue was essentially if not a hundred percent ninety percent an advertising supported through print advertising and then maybe some events here and there some newsstand sales for some of the stronger newsstand publications ends and that was really the beginning of the end of it <hes> from a revenue stream standpoint and it was a boom period <hes> especially in music because as you head spin and vibe and the source and brands really starting to embrace hip hop as marketing platform and vehicle so <hes> <unk> brands as big as you know general motors ford coke and pepsi it wasn't just the street where brands anymore that were starting to really embrace that culture and <hes> to leverage you know the those that genre of music for marketing advertising so <hes> i think for those publications and what ended up happening is they became so heavily driven by circulation and celebrity and who was on the cover and had to just be as big possible artists as you can imagine the other you know jay z on the cover of the source or your radiohead and coldplay on the covers of rolling stone and the fader and <hes> the bigger the circulation got the more you can charge for advertising pages so zaveri simple business model you know at the time which <hes> changed as we all saw <hes> you know especially <hes> brown two thousand eight so it was two thousand eight the big inflection point yeah i. I think it's interesting because coming over to fater <hes> i came over in two thousand three at the time it was a quarterly publication which is what we're actually back to now <hes> and they the guys that started it were from the music industry so they started fater more out of access to music because they were doing a lot of non traditional early early day street team digital marketing for record labels for specific releases so they would have the first outkast album before it would be serviced to survive vibe or a rolling stone or is it then they didn't have print or journalism or magazine experience but they had this access and felt like they needed the document cemented so that's how feeder started <hes> was based on this early access so started as an emerging music magazine where it was artists that you weren't really that familiar with yet which called plan cover no coal plan the cover at the time it could have been at some point at some point so what what was interesting to me because i was a journalism major in college i grew up with my father was a newspaper editor at newsday and a writer you know for forty six years and i was obsessed with <hes> you know just music journalism and when i came out of college i got a job at spin on the business side of the magazine and you know it was. Was it like you said before. It was a very different time is very circulation driven. The whole business model was based on selling ads growing your circulation and your rape base so for me what happened was is because of that. I was at points in time at both of those publications where they were either sold <hes> quincy jones and and the people <hes> bob miller bought spin and brought it into the family with vibe and the source hit such a big mass kind of mainstream removed that you know to go up from there is hard and you have to really do things that weren't in your dna and your original mission statement so what happened was isley. Spin spin is an example is where it was the quote unquote alternative to rolling stone. They were putting artists like p._j. Harvey and tori amos and you know rage against the machine on the covers when rolling stone was now starting to put david letterman and buffy the vampire slayer as they were trying to become so big and more of like and entertainment weekly than an actual music and cutting edge lifestyle magazine which was in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight and for its earlier years so i think the example is when spin got sold. They started putting a lot of pressure to grow the circulation because it wasn't an independent privately held company any longer by bob optus tony junior who is a big music fan and believe in you know promoting these kind of upcoming artists they started putting kid rock and creed and natalie attlee imbruglia and really experimenting with very mainstream things that never fit or seem to fit with the original mission statement was for spin <hes> so you know you can call it selling out but i think what it did was alienated. The core audience of those music publications that came there for something in the first place and then those magazines evolved because of the business pressures so you know put became much less of a challenge much more predictable like you knew jay z. He had an album coming out he'd be on the cover of the source you know so that's like and then in ninety nine ninety eight you started hearing things like lime wire napster during the internet and all of a sudden those long lead publications couldn't really compete with the discovery nature of music anymore so they by the time these the longley publications came out everyone already listened to anne knew about a new of everything that was going on through the internet so you know when i was growing up as an older person had to go into record stores to find you know different genres of music and it was very intimidating. If you hurt someone talk about dancehall you're like dance all for for that now. Dancehall type it in two seconds and you're listening to dancehall like through napster and lime the accessibility to music and all of these genres were so far reaching now that it usurped. I think the purpose of the longer lead you know print titles so when fader first came out was really interesting and caught my eye was that the first issue i saw was the third issue had had most f- on one side and back with the angelo together on the other side and and i didn't really know of who those people were and i thought it was really interesting so i think that around ninety nine when fader started hit this inflection point where the kids were now growing up with accessibility to every genre of music there was not like spin the alternative music magazine ad source and x._l. The hip hop magazines you you know it was here's something that's really reflecting of. What's kind of going forward you know and in multiple genres of music like someone even myself i was i call myself from the walk this way generation which is seeing you know the convergence of rap crossing over into the the mainstream and i think you know starting to really get into music in nineteen eighty six in one thousand nine hundred seven all that just became like second nature to when i was listening to led zeppelin classic rock or public enemy and rock him and you know the fat boys and the beastie boys and run dmc. It was all l. cool to me. It didn't matter it wasn't segmented so i think when failure came out it kind of like captured this moment in time that was really well well timed <hes> because it was speaking to people that had that accessible so it had some kind of advantage over some of its bigger competitors that had gone very broad. Yeah i think what fader was at that. Moment was what was kind of a combination of the best of all of those other publications from when they first started and with what their original missions were when you look at spin starting in nineteen eighty five and rolling stone starting in nineteen sixty eight they were counterculture. They were edgy. Spin was writing and hiv aids column which it was crazy at the time you know very alternative rolling stone. Had you know a crazy investigative journalism pieces and p._j. O'rourke and all those hunter thompson awesome you know the things that they were doing so i think it just you know fader came out with this like fresh voice that was speaking like a and not to sound cliche but he was speaking to this new new generation of really hardcore music fans but the same kind of secular pressures i guess as they call them in the business world you know were exempted right. I mean in two thousand and two thousand nine <hes> if particularly if it's print advertising driven <hes> music industry's gone through a lot of changes <hes> explain that inflection point and sort of how the business needed to pivot because a lot of a lot of competitors didn't really make it as they were or made it in in shrunk informs ripe right. I think being that failures mission was to cover kind of what's next in music and knowing that we weren't going to be able to rely on celebrity for any kind of real scale or mass reach. I think early on <hes> we were very <hes> very interested in doing events and like not only just putting an artist that you've never heard ever seen before on the cover of national magazine but also like doing events bringing those artists out to perform live and finding ending ways obviously early days internet to continue the conversation online so it wasn't just like you were an emerging print magazine and then had to move onto the next issue you talk about a whole new host of people you're able to like start building the brand in other ways and be a little bit more diverse so i think because we did events early on and it gave us a like a real strategic advantage in that everyone then started to do events and i think we had an expertise and ability ability to do events that became a huge ultimately a huge revenue stream for was his fader fort back fater four was just eighteen years gold <hes> and i think that's become you know it's become a one plot digital platform for us like almost like a second brand go to to the fader <hes> but in two thousand eight when print advertising was decimated we were able to kind of lean lean more on these events and really lean on the fact that the events gave us a little bit more of like a multidimensional approach because we couldn't we wouldn't wooden of survived if it was just the print advertising or just going online or going online because there was display advertising even at that point in time was <music> very you know <hes> is very <hes>. It was unknown territory. The dollars were like pennies on the dollar versus what that the meaningful meaningful print advertising before collapsed was you know so like from a c._p._m. Standpoint from a total gross revenue standpoint it didn't it's not like one. Just filled filled the gap on the other side so for us. I i do point to the fact that we did tons of events and were able to really like you know you get brands involved on a multiplatform level <hes> so i guess like ten years ago or so probably ninety percent print right y- yeah yeah so what is it today. <hes> percentage wise print is probably i would say in like the twenty to thirty percent of the total revenue pie. <hes> experiential is probably the biggest experiential in video because through video. It's that means not only only us creating our own proprietary fater video but we also do a ton of white label video content for big brands so that come to us for ours boris that iq our ability to understand how to work with artists so companies land access to the art and i think that's the the real like magical thing about failure of over the years i think when you strip everything away is the artist access that we have because we have double down on these artists so early on in their career when no one else is giving them that type of platform yet that we've been able to establish these you know great long running relationships with both those artists and their management and not not have to go through agents or middle middleman like give an example of that an artist the the stuck with for i mean they were smaller. I guess when you started working <hes> i mean artists like i think drake is a great example <hes> just because of how he is and how big it's gotten he did make it. I think it started at the bottom apparently <hes> no but drake used to come up to our office and plus music and he was a great guy and very humble <hes> and you know he almost kind of sold us on you know <hes> on his his skills and we started we did a blog post you know of one of his early songs and it did really well and then <hes> and we put him on the cover in two thousand nine. It was his first. I ever magazine cover. We went up to toronto. You went to the nursing home with him to see his grandmother mother. We spend time at his house. <hes> and we just did like a lot that i think no one had done with him at that point because he wasn't really anyone yet and i think that's what our dna really is is like kind of curated and identifying people that we believe in their music and their longevity of
Africa And Seventy Percent discussed on All Things Considered
"Let's go now to the center of Africa to a place we rarely hear from Goma is a sprawling border city of two million in Democratic Republic of Congo it's trying to keep at bay what's become the second largest Ebola outbreak in history and Paris either Peralta is they're welcome hater hello Sir give us some context here because I understand this Ebola outbreak has basically remained in two provinces in Congo at least up until now but it's clearly spreading to Goma there been four cases what is gonna doing take to keep Ebola from spreading even further well lots and that's really important because this is a major transit hub and you notice it as soon as you land before coming into the airport you're asked to wash your hands with the bleach water solution and the nurse will take your temperature restaurants banks cellphone shops the squeeze hand sanitizer as you walk in and this is a country where three kisses are the norm and people are taking precautions they're giving what is known as the a bold look reading which means you tap your elbows to say hello and shaking hands are giving kisses and of course health authorities have vaccinated more than one thousand people in this city who they believe may have come in contact with the fires and I understand it to the people who survived the virus single member treated with new drugs what are these new drugs can tell us anything about them yeah I mean this is huge they are the first time that scientists have identified clearly effective treatments for people who have Ebola and these are two regiments which help the immune system fights the virus in the were in trials down here in Congo they were able to save about seventy percent of the people who were given the treatment you mentioned that health workers are trying to vaccinate more people but since Ebola was detected in Congo last year there has been difficulty getting more and more people vaccinated why that is in security there are more than one hundred armed groups in this part of Congo any bowler respond there's have been attacked and that is fueled by a lot of mistrust and conspiracy theories that westerners and the government have created Ebola to try and kill people here in in in Congo so how concerned do people seem in Goma right now about these most recent cases the whole tone is feeling the effects you can't move without seeing medical trucks and tents but I was in the neighborhood today were people they have set up roadblocks because one of their neighbors had been robbed in two of that neighbors children had been shot by police and they kept telling you look so much money is being poured into a bowl up but nothing is being done about the everyday skin security that we face I spoke to Fidel Buffy Limbaugh an activist here and he thinks this simple outbreak offers the chance for the world to look at how it has continually filled Congo one of the things that he points at is that the U. N. has its biggest peacekeeping mission in the world here and yet Congolese are still being killed all the time let's listen to a bit of what he told me I think we had come to a point where we realize in very high poultry see racism Hey true way of from the western wall to become less people this has been so since the first ever raw white man's cities sleeps on the Congress soil and it's never too people here in Goma they feel abandoned they have been betrayed again and again not just by their government in Kinshasa but by the world so she doesn't blame them for thinking that the people trying to help with the beloved are actually trying to

Lesley Goldberg is the west coast, TV editor at the Hollywood reporter, and she joined me talk about the deal and told me, why Netflix canceled a series to begin with Netflix. Like many of the other streamers and the upcoming ones will not and do not, and will not ever release exact viewership data. So it's very hard to measure shows or movies success. But, you know, we'll look, I interviewed Netflix, head of original Cindy Holland back in April. And one of the things that she said was that didn't make economic sense to bring back one day to time for a fourth season part of what how networks does make its decisions is. They look at how much they're spending on a show and how many new subscribers. It's bringing, which of course, we don't really know either way. I mean that's looks reports. It's quarterly subscriber gains and losses. But you have no idea, how much of that is tributed to their decision to renew, or cancel the new show. But with their with the billions of dollars that they're spending on original programming every year. It's the, the decisions that they're forced to make our will fourth season of show like a of a show. One day time bring in new subscribers. Or would we best be us using the millions that we're spending on that show to do a new show that could bring in more, one company did feel the economics made sense, and that is pop TV so who is pop TV? And why did a show like this make as much sense to them as it didn't make to Netflix? Well, we should before we even talk about pop TV we should give credit to the producers of one day to time. And that's Sony Pictures television. The independent. Studio and they were successful able to save this show. This was their business dealing, and this is look this is ground. This is TV history. This is the first time that you're seeing a scripted original show that was picked up and aired originally on a streaming platform, moved to a linear network like pop TV pop TV originally known as the TV guide network. It used to be co owned by Lionsgate television and CBS about a year ago CBS wanna buying full control. So this is a niche, basic cable network, that is owned by CBS, and, you know, look, CBS, digital platform all access what really express a lot of interest in picking up one day at time, but because of the original clauses in Netflix contract it prohibited. Any other streaming platform aka any Netflix competitor from picking up this show within a few years, and nobody's gonna wanna wait multiple years to pick to revive a show that winds up. Being expensive. You have to re promote it people have lost interest. You know you you strike, while the iron is hot. And that's exactly what pop TV did as for why they picked it up. I spoke with pop TV president Brad Schwartz yesterday on Thursday, and one of the things that he mentioned is, this is a very, very small network. They have only a handful of originals shows what be it scripted and unscripted. That's largely network that is home to repeats of some big pop culture, syndicated shows, like Buffy the vampire slayer Dawson's creek the original Beverly Hills nine oh, two one. Oh, charmed. And the reason this was interesting to them is first and foremost. Everyone CBS from Brad Schwartz to the executives like Joe Iannello and David Nevins over at CBS creatively. Loved the show, and it made sense for pop because this isn't network that as I mentioned is very big on the stall. And they looked. They're sweet spot. Viewers are people who love stuff from the eighties nineties, look, no further than what their syndication, their syndicated content is ROY. Right. That's the sweet spot Dawson's creek. You don't get much more nineties, and that Buffy the same thing. And the fact that, that this what they picked up is actually a reboot of show, that, that many of its viewers already have an awareness of because of the original from forty years prior it really hit the sweet spot, so creatively. It's an IP. It's, it's intellectual property that it's audience already knows said that. It's, it's unprecedented for a show to go from a streaming service to a cable network. Does that mean it was legally difficult to unwind the deal at flex and get it on this new platform? So in terms of setting, you know, the legal precedent. This really was a business it move. So because Sony owns the rights to the show it become becomes there to figure out what they wanna do it. However, I will say that Netflix does own because they paid for and have a contract to keep those first three seasons. Netflix will remain the exclusive home streaming home to the first three seasons of one day at a time. But in the new deal Sony gets a whole lot of rights back from Netflix. Because of their pass on season four. So that means that Sony will now be able to sell the show internationally which it never did with Netflix because Netflix is in many international markets and Sony. Also in a couple of years we'll have a streaming library starting with season four. And if the show goes five six seven through ten like producer, Mike, Royce told me he wants it to they're going to have a streaming library to sell. So, you know, in APR twister fate one thing that could happen later down the line is Sony could say, hey, we've got you know, seven more seasons of this show net. Flicks, do you want buy the library to go with the first three? And even if the one day at a time fan base didn't have a lot to do with coming back on pop TV are they at least happy now that it is coming back overjoyed? I mean, it's, it's like Christmas in June. This is this is a deal. It's never been like I said, it's never been done. A streaming show has never moved off of that to find another home. Usually, it's the other way around where Netflix has been heralded as, as the save our. Show champion because they've revived so many other shows in recent memory. I mean designated survivor was canceled at ABC and moved to net flix, FOX cancel Lucifer, and Netflix picked it up. I mean, there's so many shows that Netflix has done that with. And now this is the very first time. Netflix said, nah, no will pass and left it to the studio to find a new home for it

He was at the height of his nine. Oh, two one powers when he started his pike, the Slager love interest of Buffy and Josh Weeden joss. We I always say Josh every time I mentioned his name. It's joss joss Wedenesday one thousand nine hundred Buffy the vampire slayer movie that serves the basis for the hit TV show of the same name didn't make any money though. Now, here's this weird thing. I I've never gotten in. I never got into Buffy the TV series never gotten either. I never got into it. But it's it's it's odd that I didn't get into it. Because. As I've mentioned before many times on this on this show. I have a tendency to love things that thirteen year old girls. Love in terms of TV. Like, Felicity, Gilmore, girls, mardi five my so called life. Pretty little liars. You know, I just have a tendency to like that stuff and this was aimed. I mean, you know, and I love vampires, and I love horror, and I love chicks kick ass. So I should love this show. And I've tried many many times and over the years. You know, like the circle of friends that I have had over the years all love Buffy like all love, the TV show and have have tried to get me on the Buffy train for many many years, and they're like what you're not watching the right season or you're not doing, and I've watched a lot of Buffy the vampire slayer, and I just don't like it. But I really like the movie. And I don't know if that has anything to do with the cast or I like the cast better. I like Kristy Swanson more than I like, Sarah, Michelle Gellar. Paul Reubens, isn't it? I mean for God's sake. You know, what got me Donald Sutter rules. Don't someone is the king. That's so for me watching that movie. Yeah. First place. Well, he, you know, no. And Luke Perry was great in it. Luke Perry was really really good in it. And so, but yeah, I never really got into the series, which is just. All right. He was also he was also Jeremiah colts are in Oz. And I do remember that. Luke Perry was revelatory in the gritty HBO prison drama. TV show is a preacher incarcerated for embezzling funds from church. He was really good in that. He was really really good. I think he's a prize a lot of people in that. And then Fred Andrews in Riverdale. At the time of death Perry was filming episodes for Riverdale the CW teen drama based on the Archie comics Perry start is Archie, dad. The likable owner of a construction company. I think that's pretty good casting. I gotta say now, I didn't watch Riverdale. I know there's another show that I know a lot of people who love. But I think that's great casting. You're gonna you're gonna make a CW show aimed at teenagers. And he cast Luke Perry come on now. That's very smart in in a multi generational kind of casting right there. And then of course, Dylan McKay in Beverly.

Emma Thompson is joining new 'Men in Black' spinoff
"Let's move on to some spinoff news. The men in black spinoff is gearing up in. We have learned the Emma Thompson is joining the cast reprising her role from par three. Ben tell us about it yet. That's basically all we know from this one is that is that Emma Thompson who played agent zero in twenty twelve's men in black three is going to be coming back to reprise that role the so we know that agents era was sort of like the leader of the men in black. She took over that role after rip torn who played Zad in the first two movies. I guess he died in the third entry. It's been so long since I've seen men in black three, I thought at once in the theaters and basically just completely forgot about the movie. I know involved time travel. There's a lot of weird stuff going on that, but Emma Thompson is great. I mean, any movie that that adds her. I mean, like she automatically makes everything better. She's an Oscar winning actress and Oscar winning screenwriter the I think the second time that she will be returning to play the same character in a popular film franchise because she was also in the Harry Potter movies. So we know that she's the leader of the men in black and also Liam Neeson has been added to the cast of this spin off. We knew about that, but he is going to be playing the. Leader of the London branch of the minimum black and this spin off or reboot, or whatever it's going to be is supposed to take the action to more global scale. So maybe the two of them are going to. I don't know if they, they could have a big business meeting about how they're going to run the minimum black on a global scale. I don't know exactly if they're going to interact in person or share the screen. But if they do it, don't make a nice nice little reunion for them because they were both in love. Actually back in two thousand three now, did we always know that this is going to be said in the same universe? I mean, I, it is a spin off, but it's kind of a bit of a reboot as well. Did you connections? I mean, I think they, they have not said whether or not Will Smith or Tommy Lee Jones. The stars of the the first three movies are going to be coming back, but I would not rule out a quick cameo from them. I think just I guess because I haven't set it on this episode. Chris Hemsworth antenna Thompson are leading the cast in this new edition, but. But yeah, I think this is the first official connection we have between this new movie and the the original trilogy. So I don't know. I mean, that certainly opens the door for the possibility of a cameo before wills Mathur Tommy Lee Jones and now that, yeah, now that we know it's one hundred percent set in that same universe. I'm going to predict right now that Will Smith appears either in one of the final two scenes of the movie or in an after cry or cry in credits. Seen that that's my prediction Mark down. Yeah, let's move onto Hamilton which might be headed to the big screen sooner than we think, but not as we had hoped Chris toilets, but it. Yes, everyone knows Hamilton, it's a huge, hit a Pulitzer prize winning musical. Everyone knows what it is even if you don't follow Broadway news and as is the case with most big musicals it's only a matter of time before Hollywood comes calling and turns this into a big movie and we had assumed it would take a while for this just because the film is the place still running and they don't wanna, you know, have it have the movie competing with the play. They want to get as many people at the play as possible. But now comes word there is going to be a film sooner than we thought, but it's not going to be the big Hollywood remake of the play instead right before Lin Manuel, Miranda the creator and original star of Hamilton. Left's the original cast along with pretty much all the original started to leave in two thousand sixteen. They recorded a alive performance with the entire original..
