He knows what he's talking about. She's nodding from the doors and give me a thumbs up. She says that's the technical term. I'm a preschool teacher. And i bake for fun. I often leave cookies and things to cool on my kitchen counter. My dad works nights and often comes home and eats eighty five percent of whatever i had baked the day before which isn't usually a problem earlier this week. I made cinnamon ornaments with my students and brought them back to bra boy. The only ingredients are two cups of flour and a cup each of cinnamon and salt. So they're not cookies even though they look like gingerbread they obviously don't taste good. I didn't think till even note because they were on a tray covered in dry paint and clearly to me not food. I think my dad. Eight one of the extras i made and threw it out. I can't imagine he was able to eat the whole thing. Because now he's refusing to eat the actual baked goods. I make how do i tell my dad. I'm not mad. He ate an intentionally inedible ornament. And the other stuff. I leave out tastes fine. And he's welcomed to them. Thanks from not a bad baker in new york. I have a big problem with this. And it's this person sounds like they asked us for advice about a different question already. Came up to like an incredible solution to their first problem and now they're like. How can i re problem it and not as professional advice guys were not in the business of recreating problems. This has been solved a others up until now my dad has been eating. Eighty five percent of the things i make and i already sold it anyways. Guys have a great day already holidays for to you and yours. I need nothing from you this okay. Your dad floated in on the good smell. Would things normally right normally floats in. Yeah on the good smells right and i. It depends on how hungry he is. You might be looking at someone and instead of them. Seeing a fully dressed roasted chicken. Obviously jesse. that's just science. But what i hear they wrote. They wrote that their dad is top cat. So top dad came in and he likes saw this tray of children's ornaments which sounds like you said painted were painted on and he said Divided by do an alien. It seemed like your dad who. I'm going to guess if you're a teacher. He's at least forty two just to learn a lesson. I'm trying to teach my child about ninety earlier. I'm talking about the eleven month old. You know but these cookies are mean i. I'm sorry this is a mean thing to do with ornaments at folks. I don't feel like you should be allowed to use food products in the non edible fashion you know when people take perfectly good pine kaz they cover them and seeds peanut butter. There's always party it's to hang think icon. Wanna eat that. You're not allowed to justin. You're taking an inevitable thing. You're making it more edible. This is be like if you took chunks would wood adept them and chocolate again. Know gyping chunks of wood travis. Dipping chunks of wood and chocolate is almost exactly the same as covering pine cones and peanut butter. I substituted would for pine cones in chocolate for peanut butter. But it's the same story. We're talking here about food. Products made into nonfood products. Not nonfood products made into food products. Said just as bad example and we all knew it and we weren't going to dwell on it but now you turn it into a federal case this point you know the real victims their kids. You could've made edible for your kids but instead you made them make kind of cookies. The they can't eat you know you really should. The question should be. How do i tell little. Vicky that my dad eight or peter ornament that is really the mean. Data eight edible fairly not vicky. I'm really sorry. Here's one last question for the mcelroy brothers from my brother. My brother and me every year for christmas for many years. Now my aunt's main gift to me is a giant package of ghirardelli peppermint bark. When i was a kid i loved it. I couldn't get enough of it but this has been going on for years now and unfortunately my tastes of changed with age. I guess i had too much of a good thing because now i can't stand the sight of that peppermint bark my problem is. I don't know how to tell my aunt that i want different candy for christmas. If she's going to buy me candy. I'd like to actually enjoy the gesture. Please help me. Brothers from peppermint bradey in pittsburgh. Great name you do know where candy is sold right. I mean you're an adult. I'm assuming you know where to go. Get yourself i bet. That's not go martha and justin. The problem is the problem. No no no this is classic classic problem where a family member who doesn't know you well extended family member. Thinks they locked onto something that they feel comfortable getting you for christmas for holidays and that they believe you enjoy and there's been an unspoken agreement between the two of you that you like it and they haven't felt the need to push past that right. I think we can all agree. That's an excellent summation of the question. We heard for sure. Well now the problem is how do then break that covenant. Because as soon as you say hey i think i might like some different candy this year. It will ripple back through your aunts. Mind what she will here is. I've never liked this candy. It's all been a lie. Everything up until now has been hollow. And if that's the case who knows what else and vicky hasn't been joined by other people you know. I think you could do like a. I got struck by lightning this year. And when i got through the other side of that electric tunnel. I.

"Work that you're going to be putting out into the world look. Let me start with on jingle jangle if you are not a person of the african diaspora of something. You probably didn't notice. Everyone had natural hair. That people are probably like so. This hair's natural okay. Revolutionary era it's revolutionary is particularly in a magical space where so often even if we're in magical spaces were being made to look like somebody else's magic an i. I had a relax in my hair from ten years old until three years ago. I think when chopard thing off. I didn't know what my hair looked like. At an i had no sense of the texture of my hair. I had no idea And i that it was something that was sort of unruly and unable to be handled and dealt with because when you have a relaxer natural hair starts will grow in. It feels hard and angry and mad because it is hard angry. Mad is mad at you so it has actually taken proper. Took probably two two and a half years for me to feel. My hair is changing. All the time is different all over my head. But i wonder what i have felt the need to have a relaxed. People don't know what that is. A relaxer is when you basically strip the natural curl out of your hair chemically so that your hair straight or wavy or whatever just a much looser curl mostly straight and it also strips the nutrients of your hair so most of the time. You're hurting your hair. Where the realize it or not sharon. Martin did the hair on this film. She might work together before we worked together. On half of a yellow sun 'til out of people unfortunately didn't see his beautiful and every every piece of hair was thought about. We've wanted styles. That were spoke to the victorian era but through the african gays. Because that's who these people were. You know You always take your history with you through your dna and you always say black votes always are putting a twist on something and they may not even know that what they're doing is something that came from across the ocean with them and it's amazing that lasted this long. But that's what happens. And i thought how amazing for children to be able to see their hair in its natural state for but in beautiful in its beautiful natural state like glorious. Crowns beads twists braves locks. You know at a time where we are having to create laws so that people can wear their natural hair that comes out of their head in the way that it comes out of their head to go to work so that children can go to school with the hair that grows out of their head the way girls out of their head so that boys can finish their wrestling matches without some random person. Shaving their head. Let me tell you who. That's a lucky in raking person. 'cause that's beyond you've that's beyond the pale like you've overstepped that even children in africa little black children are being told. They can't go to school with their hair in. Its natural state so for people to see and not just for us to see the most importantly for us to see it but also for young children who are not children of color to see the glory of natural black hair on screen it is it is a lesson that is softly being seeked in to the spirit of all of these children it is a normalization but it is also a heightening. Not only is it normal. It's beautiful so when you see it know that it's beautiful. It's not different. It's not something you need to touch without ask. It's not something that you need to make a fuss about or the decide that oh. You can't possibly have a meeting with your hair like that. It's my hair my hair and there's a beauty in that normalization and regionalization of those images. That i think will reverberate. And i'm grateful that that was something that was important to both the filmmakers Talbert owns very into that. David was very into it. And sharon martin. Who's hairs recently natural. Fantastic as you talk about that. I think about the first time. I saw a depiction of the value of representations on twitter and i remember watching the wiz live and ouzo deuba was playing glenda the good witch and there was a little girl. There was a photo of a little girl standing in front of the screen and see them. Silhouette and do is seeing on the screen. She is glenda the good wage. She has natural hair and the little girl has heard little afropop. Since you like reaching to touch the screen. And her mom tweeted the photo out with the caption. Representation matters and my hope. Is that little girls and little boys that are of the african-based for will be able to see jingle jangle and jessica nc all of these beautiful characters in their beauty and and recognize that they matter as well so it is such an honor to get to speak with you about this film and to have this conversation with you. I i really really appreciate it. You it's been a joy talking to you. I hope people love the film as much as we love it and oh wonderful holiday season. A nika nonni rose interviewed by jared hill roses film jingle jangle is streaming right now on net flicks. It's got some wonderful performances. Jared is half of the terrific. Max fun show fanti which was just named one of apple's best podcasts of two thousand twenty fanti of course is also great. Go checkout fanta. It's the bulls eye holiday special.

"It is. There's some of the best things you can hope to hear. In time of year. He had his own kind of melodic language. Like i got into his non peanuts material to and it's just his own sense of melody. Were there christmas songs that you look forward to hearing at christmas. I listened to but to three albums only only three it christmas time. And that's the girly christmas record the bing bing crosby. I don't know what it's called. But it's one with andrew sisters on it it's the classic and handel's messiah and i don't feel much need to to look into others. Christmas music has a certain utility this time of year. You put on the record and it is one of many sensory things that you have going on to create the atmosphere. I think i listen much more than it. Probably merits to just a pretty generic album of pipe. Organ christmas songs and i think it's just because it reminds me of like reasonably fond memories of the pipe organ at the church. I went to as a kid mike. It's just has a nice quality of the sound more than anything else. It's stuffy wouldn't listen to any other time of year and it's it's a time when you have licensed to be purely nostalgic. I mean the handel's messiah. Was i remember as a kid playing violin playing in the community. Do it yourself from cya at the local church you know and that kind of warm glow of the church in this great classical piece a played in a sort of folk music in away. There was a nice nice feeling ahead about that. Do you have fond memories of christmas as a child. Did you like it. I did. I understand why. A lot of people have mixed feelings about the holidays. Spending tremendous amount of time with some people. You don't always have a lot in common with stress of family. And i did with his album. Try to write an original. I wrote a few original tunes but my first attempt. I threw away because they were got to dark. I was talking about dysfunctional families and alcoholism. And just like this is going against the idea of what you know. Why are we use christmas music again. It's utility thing it. It serves a purpose. Which i think is kind of nice. It gives me license to kind of just enjoy it. You know not not to suffer over it so much. But i didn't abusing the handsome family so much wine mixed with the melody for green sleeves which is one of my favorite melodies. Nothing to see on christmas day when you through your clo- in the snow when you burn she. Hey my favorite. Christmas tanzer are the minor key sort of dark melancholy tunes green sleeves. Little drummer boy. They tend to be the older ones. That are kind of have a renaissance to baroque kind of era. I mean there's something to. I think to the idea of christmas as a celebration of the birth of christ where in order to really engage with that idea as you know was the the heart of christmas for a very long time. I think you have to deal with both the kind of scary loneliness of alone in a manger. You know just that idea that it's that it's a mother a father and the animals but also the aw of a miracle and those are kind of different feelings from chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Which is also i mean like that might be the feeling that i must associate with christmas but that odd quality is so important so beautifully expressed in something like you know what child is. That's true it is interesting. How the sacred and secular come together in the music in christmas music and how much we can find ourselves in a cvs hearing something very vividly religious and this great epoch. Being told and i. I also think about though in the secular sense of it that where it falls on the calendar. Is you know how it fits in with other kinds of pigging. Holidays proceeded christianity. And is it. Isn't it mostly like this festival of light to kind of get through the dark cold days and kind of lines up with those other traditions of of of trying to create some more than light in dark time. Yeah i was thinking of the idea of making your own warmth as you were talking about that that idea of like coming together and fire in light for warmth that is so necessary in the darkest coldest part of the year. Yeah one of the aesthetic things about christmas songs that i find myself really liking. I was reminded of by you. Mentioning bing crosby. I also listen to been crosby sing christmas songs. Whenever and i don't listen to bing crosby the rest of the year no offense to bring crosby but there's something about the confluence of the lack singing aesthetics of that time you know the the forties into their early fifties sort of just before rock and roll and christmas music. That works for me and it's something about vat bing crosby has such an intimate style. It was basically the first time that you didn't have to yell to make the needle move enough to cut a record or whatever read. Yeah something to do with magnets. I don't know but his phrasing is an his tone is very drowsy. Yes i think is something i associate with the nostalgia childhood to is that kind of staying late. It's dark there's like warm lighting and you're getting sleepy right here bing crosby kind of his syrupy voice in the background and is something. I tried to capture on one of the originals on alabama. Was this sense of more. Like the outside looking in being out nicole looking something i used to do in the winter in chicago walking to cold dark neighborhoods and looking in seeing these apartments kind of glowing from inside and that i was thinking about that voyeurism. What's what's their lifelike in that. Warm glow and and so two originals are kind of dealing with that being on the outside hoping someone invites you in kind of good samaritan kind of warmth an invitation and Yeah there's all sorts of things like i said it's a sensory thing. There's there's smells. There's there's light and there's sound and those things kind of.

"There. Except you. Come in Darling I've been expecting. Oh come in the afraid. I won't bite. And you're bound to have a good time. or My name isn't. L. By. That's Hilarious Cassandra Peterson welcome to bulls eight. So great to have you on the show. Thank you. Wow. I, forgot about that voice. My voice is like since gone down about twelve octaves. Yeah. I mean in in in listening to that the first thing that I wondered was you know you've been doing this character that's nineteen eighty one. Yeah. So you've been doing this character for thirty five years. What, what is different about Elvira in two thousand seventeen? well, my voices lower like I said. So, are a lot of other parts of me. Well. We won't go there. Let's see. My hair is maybe much higher than it was started out with the very flare. It was a blue font, but it was so low when I look at old pictures of me I'm always shocked I can kind of tell what year it is by how high my hair was. that's kind of the only difference I like to imagine that you're just you're adding onto it like the winchester mystery house or something. Just, I did for awhile gets added I. Did do that for a while my hair got so damn high in the nineties that I looked like marred Simpson started looking ridiculous I had to I had to tone it down and then we found a happy happy middle ground not to flat not too high chest right and I sorta stuck without. The character kind of came out of something that you were doing at the groundlings in the late seventies and early eighties, but it wasn't like a literal. Translation of something you were doing at the groundlings where where did it come from right? Not Like peewee who actually developed his character there I had a dopey valley girl kind of character that I was using at the time in a couple of sketches and kind of a Bimbo kind of a smart ass gonna a, Valley girl and When I heard about this interview for a job which were asked groundlings looking for jobs I decided I'd kind of go with that character use the valley girl thing and and the smart Alecky talk and I didn't know if it would work or not but the director liked it. Like white lead you to do that and not Bela Lugosi voice or whatever. Well, that's me. That is what they were looking for, and they had a script that was an old vampire script and really the the first lines in at were come in darling drink a glass of blood. And I have to say the script was so. Bad. Probably played well and awesome in nineteen, fifty one but it was. Really not that funny it hasn't jokes in it. So being an Improv person, I decided to just improvise and. Know it wasn't like I was dying to get this job really like paid three hundred dollars a week and that was on local TV and. It wasn't like Oh, my God my big break a. so I wasn't that thrilled about the whole thing. So I just started improvising and kind of did the character that I was using at that moment in the groundlings and the weird thing about that was that. It really didn't go with horror movies at all I mean it was so. Different from that but. They liked it. They like the humor and then I had to come up with a costume. So when they say come up with a costume. Like did they just? Give you one hundred dollars incentive Fredericks of Hollywood or whatever? No, not exactly they they said you've got to come up with a spooky looking outfit because you're hosting or movies after all and I said, that's awesome because I love horror movies what I did. I was going to my best friend at the time who was wonderful artist and I sat down with him and they said we've got to come up with a cool look. You know that spooky and and Blah Blah. So. We talked about it and we both decided we we were in love with Sharon Tate's character in the fearless vampire killers and we're like, let's go that way. I'll have long curly red hair and and a kind of a sheer diaphanous gown that's tattered and come the dead girl makeup, White Lips and big black circles around the eyes and so that's what he drew up. I have that picture still I just put it in my book that came out recently and hated it. They just took one look at it and said, now you kidding you have to have all black you have to have to have black hair black black closed. It was like, Oh, God so typical you know. Like how what are we gonNA do to update that look. So I don't look like ripping off either of them but when your ears are all black but black hair, would he do you know and you're supposed to be some kind of vampire or something? So. My friend Robert Nigh came up with ideas to nick look Kinda hip eighty s kind of punk. You know there was no goth we had our we had never heard of goth moving at that time. If there was I may have been under over England, but I'd never heard of it. So we try to do a little you know heavy metal punk stuff here and there jagged edges. Some safety pins some. Bracelet leather bracelets with studs on him and and then he happened to be the world's biggest fan of Ronnie Spector from the rats and he said I've got to do your hairdo. You're you have to have. Ronnie Spector hair and obviously Brian Specter hair with meaning as it's called a knowledge bump and we'll do. So he actually bought the whig cut and touted in the Ronnie Spector hair when you started doing it, did you feel like this works? No I didn't feel that way right away. I felt like an idiot I. I. Felt like this is ridiculous. This is not that funny only started out. This was awesome. We started out instead of laying on my Red Sofa that's kind of become is signatures Sofa. I was standing under a streetlight. So it kind of felt like I was a vampire hookers something. It was odd. It wasn't chased like the later iteration survey. Yeah later got so yeah exactly chaser but No, it was I didn't think it was working I thought it was ridiculous and. The Way I knew it was working is that a few weeks into I got called by the tonight show to come on Johnny Carson show with Johnny Carson I was like Oh my God why why? Why what's going on here? I, feel like what a bizarre big break like to get the call from the tonight show. Great. I've been I've been a showgirl I've been a toured with the band. I've been with the groundlings for five years. I've I've been movies I've been you know all these things that you had done. Like. Yes. we would like you to wear the local television dress. here's a couple of things. So they're very odd when I, look back and think about it. It did come from just out of the Blue I was an actress opposite comedian looking for work. But when I think about things from my childhood number one, my mom ran a costume shop, my mom and my aunt. So I dressed up in wacky costumes, all the time and really awesome costumes because they would. So me whatever happened to be hot at the time like I dream of Jeannie costume or or a ginger from Gilligan's island. So they would make those costumes for me and I'd go out and as young as second grade I. One costume contest one, hundred dollar bond just as Miss Kitty from gun smoke you know Barroom Girls Harry was with Garter, belt you.

Alex Winter on how he and Keanu Reeves brought George Carlin's touching cameo to 'Bill & Ted Face the Music' (spoilers!)
"Jesse Thorn. Our guest is Alex Winter you probably know him best as bill from bill and Ted along with Keanu reeves he starred in bill and Ted's excellent adventure bill and Ted's bogus journey and the brand new movie bill and Ted face the music. Alex is also a director who's made several documentaries. His latest just came out a couple of months ago it's called show biscuits. It features interviews with former child stars about how their time working in the entertainment industry affected them. Let's get back to the conversation. There's a lot in this in this movie also about parenthood and the ties that bind to their and in particular how children kind of actualize the dreams of their parents in some ways for good and bad. I saw that theme also and show Biz kids. Your documentary that made me wonder if you saw parallel there to do you find that particularly compelling. I was raised by two artists. My parents were modern dancers. My mom had company in London, which is where I was born in my dad ultimately had a company in the Midwest. which is still going on when we moved to the states house quite young. I started out as a child actor professionally by like nine or ten I was working professionally by twelve thirteen I was in two long running probably shows back-back. Took me all the way into college so. My relationship to. My parents and to my family and the complexity of that and this idea of I wouldn't call destiny. That's the sort of of the movies that. But you know this idea of expectation and what is your life supposed to be, and of course, it's never going to be that and it shouldn't be that and and and how do the children affects the parents? How do the parents affect the children and of course now I'm a dad and so how'd now it's a triple layer cake right And Those are all those drams or fusing together and crazy ways and I had really wanted to make a film that allowed people who had experienced this firsthand meaning people that come up as child actors. I wanted them to be able to express the very nuanced layers of of that experience. Intimately I just had not seen that done and I had. you know obviously had done it myself in private, but I'd never kind of attacked at. So you that was very satisfying to be able to make and it was really odd to try to make show Biz because for the first time about ten years ago I couldn't find financing and it was exactly the concept. So it was very very strange to. Lovely. But strange to start making the film, shoot a bunch of interviews go away, make bill and Ted be dealing with you know Ted's problems with his dad our issues with our daughters live and our destiny that didn't end up the way it was supposed to in how did that impact everybody and you know, and then of course, like acting for the first time gangs I left act the acting business in after doing Dylan Ted to really Very consciously, and so acting again and I'm making a movie about child actors about parents and their children and it was it was like Oh did this all really need to happen at once was that necessary? I my Gosh. Every aspect of my entire life right now. So Yeah it was lovely and heavy Frankly yeah. Tell me about that decision to kind of I. Think you said, disappear for a minute and then come back and be doing more behind the scenes work than acting. Well. We talk about it in in show Biz kids and it's really not uncommon. It's. It's you know I had started acting I had a very, very public life from around ten years old to about twenty five on nonstop even through college. I was still acting on TV and doing commercials and TV shows. Nonstop and after bill and Tattoo amid and other film called freaked I was just psychologically. I was just worn out and I knew. That I was not I had some friends around me that were crashing hard at a couple that actually died. It was a pretty heavy scene. For Lot of us that had come up because we're all around the same age. So a lot of us were trying to transition from from you know sort of youth in the business too young adult business. We're not having the best time of it and and at the same time I gone to film school and was very very committed to my work as a writer director But it you know for me, I needed to make a conscious decision to get out of the public eye and just go live some normal life and I didn't feel like I'd really gotten to do that through pretty. Formative Adolescence and postal license and. Evan Rachel Wood speaks about this really well in the in the movie sodas will we? All everyone had the same experience I was sitting across from Diana Kerry, the hundred year old woman who was baby peggy, and she literally laid out my entire life story was completely jaw dropping. And that's what had happened to her when she had to really figure life out and she had to get away from the business and. And just be in the world and that's what I did I left. I left my acting representation and I moved and started a production company in London and I just shot commercials and wrote scripts and had a kid and live like regular Joe and. Got My head together and did some growing up and when I felt comfortable again, I started training again to act that was a while ago I just wanted to act for myself I didn't WanNA act. NAFTA, worry about it for paycheck I trained for a long time and it was just coincidentally had started kind of rumble back into life. But it was really lovely. It was a great way to come back can't owner. He's like, what am I, very, very dearest and closest friends in the world and. Everyone on that sat was family and if they weren't, they were really gracious and very happy to be there. So it was extremely sweet environment to step back into but Yeah, it was fun. But I I guess I needed the twenty five year break I I took it.

Thick plumes of smoke from USS Bonham Rashard ported to clear skies and covered parts of naval base, San Diego and San Diego Bay. The amphibious assault ship was undergoing maintenance and therefore did not have any aircraft on board. Federal fire crews, local agencies and other navy ships responded to the scene. Some sailors and civilians were taken to the hospital and treated for non life threatening injuries. Navy officials say the rest of the crew was evacuated from the ship and is accounted for.

An Excerpt from the book Youve Got This: The Life Changing Power of Trusting Yourself by Margie Warrell
"An excerpt from the book. You've got this the life changing power trusting yourself by Margie. Worrell growing up on a small dairy farm in rural Australia. I learned early. That courage trump's confidence as I mustered up my courage learning to ride my first horse as he towered over me or at least felt that way that a couple of years later had trained the brave all over again as I mastered my second horse. A Wild Brumby. We won in a raffle. Who went from zero to one hundred miles per hour in five seconds flat? My lifelong lesson growth in comfort can't ride the same horse of course if you've ever wished he were confidence you're not alone. The biggest hurdle we ever have to face fairly stories. We spin ourselves about not having what it takes to achieve what we want mired in misgivings. Many people tiptoed timidly through much of their lives arriving safely. Life's end with a large gap between the life. They did live the life they could have lived if only they act themselves more and doubted themselves less. Of course we're all wired for caution cognitively bias to overestimate the risks. Underestimate ourselves man. Focus more on. What scares us like being rejected or exposed as a fraud than on. What inspires us? Little wonder one of the regrets of the dying is that they lived to safe and risks to little which begs the question. Is it confidence. We really need to forge meaningful careers and driving our lives or is it courage to take action amid or doubt fears and misgivings Bill Marriott. The legendary hotelier. Who took the business? His father had started as a nine seat root beer stand and turn it into the world's largest hotel empire believes it's the ladder during a fireside chat for Marriott headquarters. I asked him what he learned about building confidence. He threw his head back and laughed. I've learnt that don't have as much as people think I have. He chuckled ye confidence by doing and learning and making mistakes and fixing. Your mistakes is true. Confidence is inbuilt through. Knowing you can't fail is built through risking failure daring to act with very confidence. We wish we had and trusting ourselves that even if we fall short we'll figure it out and be okay. Martin Seligman a leader in the field of positive. Psychology said that positive self image by itself doesn't produce anything in cannot be sustained without action in other words. You can't think yourself confident rather a Soliman road quote a sustainable sense of security in oneself arises from positive and productive behavior and quote. Ask anyone who's ever done anything worthwhile. And they'll tell you that it wasn't confidence in their invincibility that fueled their endeavors rather their desire to do something trump. They're feared they'd fall short in their attempt or my case as an aspiring equestrian fall of my oars which by the way I did many times ensured their mission exceeded their fear compelling them break ranks from comfort. Time and time again sometimes. It was semi confident actions. Sometimes it was not in the gut knees shaking nervous action but always action as prime minister of New Zealand. Jason Arden said quote. If you sit and wait to feel like you're the most confident person in the room. You were probably going to be left by yourself and quote so too. It is for all of us. We cannot build the confidence. We like sitting safely on our couch. Waiting for a thunderbolt of unstoppable self-belief to strike us from above does not say confidence doesn't have its merits. However with the exception of cereal narcissists confidence waxes and wanes. Waiting until you feel confident you cannot fall short before you take a brave leap toward your bold. His aspirations in your work relationships and life Camino long long wait far more useful to focus their energy on cultivating courage or training. The brave as I did each time saddled up after a fall all those years ago after all. Courage is not dependent on being completely self-assured that you'll hit a bullseye. Every time rather as about daring to do something despite your misgivings or lack of mastery as research has repeatedly found people build confidence by adopting a growth mindset and wish they give themselves permission to get better as they go along first allows you first draft then a slightly less lousy second. Dina half decent third draft. No one writes bestseller first time. They put pen to paper. So if you've been waiting until you're one hundred percent confident you know exactly what you are doing or of achieved. Davinci like mastery before you set out. Consider the hidden tax of letting your doubts. Call the shots on your career on your relationships. On the value or adding or failing to add for others on ever unleashing your full brilliance on the world cheating behaviors proceeds changing self perception rather than dwelling on all the reasons why not to take action. Shift your focus onto your future desired outcome and then take some action any action toward it doesn't matter how small or insignificant your action is. It just matters that you reclaim the power you've previously given your doubts in fears then notice how you feel nervous. Perhaps but definitely more empowered because he realized that the ground beneath you didn't open up and actually it wasn't so bad after all and then tomorrow repeat and continue every day thereafter until whatever one scared you no longer does at which point. It'll be time to raise your size again by deliberating. Refocusing your attention onto what it is that you do want. It creates a subtle shifting your psychological state than by taking action toward it. You subconsciously affirmed for yourself your commitment to achieving it courage confidence life rewards action only by daring to defy your. Taos and act with the confidence. You wish you had. Can you ever realize how little reason you ever had to doubt yourself?

Should we put on the hot seat? I A. I. Lizzy oh because I stands for artificial intelligence that means he's a robot and I love her about Albert. We'll go without a name right Shayla. What's your first question for out? What is the hardest thing in your job Actually I love my job so much that there is no hard part of it. I enjoy doing everything that's connected with it so there is nothing that's hard. Wow that's a great job certainly is what is your favorite part about. It ny shooting shooting the bow. The feeling that I get from shooting the bow and hitting the Bullseye is Is Unexplainable it's been. It's been with me for a long time and I get excited every day when I go into shoot. The other part is teaching the people how to shoot. It makes me feel like I'm sharing the love that I have of the sport with other people. Necessarily Theresa what would be a typical day for you in your job. Well it definitely starts with the healthy breakfast a big breakfast especially when I'm training. I'm eating a lot more than I would. When I'm not training what she does. Lots of biggles. Lots of fruit anyways. Yeah start with the big breakfast. And then I just go to the gym do a lot of weight training cardio work and then I go to the range and work with my coach and then in the afternoons my team joins me and I would say nice. Epsom salt bath at the end of the night. That sounds very nice. I just WANNA clarify like the piracy ate a lot. She worked out a lot so does WANNA do part of her job. How what is it dry fire in archery dry Faris? When you pull the bow back without an Arrow in the bow and let the string go all of the energy from the bogue goes back into the bow therefore causing damage to the bow or to the person that shooting. What about wet fire? That's done underwater. Oh Oh never let me do. Some underwater artery blazed. I don't think that's so good for your circuits. Teresa what is a Robin Hood? Oh that's a great question. That is what is called when you split someone else's Arrow with your own Arrow Debra you and I should split narrow sometime. Sure that'd be nice. What chaser what does it mean to knock now? Oh that's a great question that is so if you're shooting and teams going. I and you hit one off either your own. Or maybe your teammates off of the bull's eye or wherever there are always it's pretty much that just noggin it. Right onto the ground theresa. If I were to do what you do. What tips would you give me? I would say if you have a love for the sport. That really is a great place to start and you just have to be willing to put in the time to practice and keep your body healthy. You have to be super strong to be a good archer. You do have to be strong but you don't have to start. Strong actually was not very strong. When I started. And they'll start you out with a bow that you know that fits you and that's good for whatever strength you have and as you work you develop more strength over time. How hard is it to catch the Arrow through? That isn't a team sport. One person shoots. It's the other one has to catch it definitely not. Maybe I'm thinking of something else. What are the steps to becoming a great archery? Okay step number. One would be to find someone who could teach you the proper way of shooting and then once you learn the basics of shooting. The next step is very easy. It's called practice. That's the only thing that will make you a great archer. There are no tricks. There are no gimmicks. Here are no secrets. It's just

Legs like hey rip these ships out and put these chips and you can play a bootleg of this other game on pacman hardware and so instead of having to download separate things for each individual the game. They've been like hey. We're just gonNA adapt pacman hardware stuff to run multiple games. According to Wikipedia that hardware is actually called NAMCO PAC man. Yeah that's probably right in the name of that system that arcade platform. Yeah that's probably that's sounds about right. An eight bit Arcade Game System Board glaxy glaxy and also a ton and scramble rally x game was also widely modifiable. Show jump shot jump shot and shoot the bowl game the bullseye actual seriously are these stories. Is that you don't know exactly what was from your downloading files which are cores for this.

"bullseye" Discussed on Bullseye with Jesse Thorn
"In a museum exhibition and film film and also was working on the king-maker at the same time and it made me really think about my own addiction. Shen to work as I was looking at These kind of great addictions and rise and fall of my subjects mostly around money and beauty and and youth and sexuality and so it just forced me as is an artist kind of contemplating this in my own work to think about how it reflected in my own life and and also to think about how we were all complicit myself included in this kind of culture of access an of kind of nonstop perfectionism and and and in the in the film all of the characters kind of have crashes both the financial crash but also personal crashes where the crashes are also moments of a weakening and I think for me while I was making this film I started interviewing my family remembers and my kids and Began interviewing my kids about their generation their generation of materialism and social media and an and what ended up coming out was in a way. They're critique of me for Working so much you know sometimes at at the expense of not being there as a parent not traveling too much and and really I think not listening not listening to how it affected acted them and I think for all of the characters in the film including myself it. It's the waking up to how your are t t to what's really going on. In my case. It was how I was affecting members of my family. That does change your behavior and that said the film is about addiction and my husband always says who you are as who you've always been and so I can't say that I'm not that Worker worker bee anymore. That's kind of just who I am but I do think that being conscious of the downside of what most people see the as a kind of positive thing and the way that it can negatively impact the people in my life particularly my family is definitely something that I'm much more aware of and I think that awareness affects my actions. Lauren thank you so much for taking all this time to be on. Bullseye was really nice to get to talk. Thank you thank you for having me. Lauren Greenfield her film. The king-maker is in theaters. Now it will be on showtime early next year..

"Of information kind of funny because the beginning of the year we were told the Broncos had the most difficult schedule the NFL or second most most behind Texas dipping high look at it now everybody's talking about the schedule being so easy it's funny how on paper something looks in the beginning of the season and you get a way it was easy to find out it's not what you thought you with the Cleveland Browns for instance everybody was in the high pick for the Superbowl now they might not even win their division so you know it's it's it's interesting to watch to stop play out well even in the course of the of the flows of the season I mean as soon as Andrew luck announces retirement a lot of people just immediately said okay the culture gonna be picking in the top five judge go we were set is doing okay in fact the colts might even not necessarily go into the draft picking a high quarterback they might say you know Hey you if you if you could make us a competitive team Jacoby maybe they let you roll with it another year and they'll just bring in a quarterback they'll draft a quarterback to develop behind him I agree and I think it's amazing that you didn't mention Chad Kelly in there once that's because I shouldn't and nobody should here right but they they you know a little help Broncos fans are some people that I know I know I'll floater the one that got away the legend to the got away preseason legend Kyle floater all time grease motor back in a pre season he's putting up some really spectacular preseason numbers Benjamin rushing it yeah but highly loader single handedly ending the dreams of future insurance salesman but but to that point and I and I'm glad you brought that up and we we spoke about this a few times the ANC overall pretty weak conference you have the top in teams right we know those teams it it that doesn't change anything we knew that those teams were gonna probably be good but what happens is there's a lot of middling to bad teams teams actively taking in the A. F. C. N. and then there are teams that are look inconsistent at best and so for for the Broncos that's why you when we were in the midst of the old for when the Broncos were in the midst filled before we were talking about it we said look star string together a few wins yeah you never really know how this is going to shake out and in the midst of the Broncos getting the two wins in a row which they really should have three in a row the chief lose too and they lose too in a way that actually is a replicable likely teams or Detroit Lions basically did it carry that into the colts game the colts they went to Kansas city and they didn't even better and in the Texas look the the Texans model what is John Watson and and the officer told this sort of their shots it wasn't like they they wanted that game saying if we can hold them under twenty no I just did their thing they took chances will fuller drop three touchdowns in that game now three touchdowns in the game on now you know a great week start will fuller your fantasy league yeah I don't know any Benjamin all rights that would have invested heavily in him and done that but I I but yeah yeah that happened well buddy that that's that's what kills is like you know well for the week before hundred seventy yards receiving three touchdowns any of this to find digs going off for three W. like those things happen in that everybody's gonna rush to put it back in their or their line ups and then at the very next week their their disappointment right I'm not appoint chaser by as those good match up and then put in that vein it's not like the tents that that's where I'm I'm like look does the size of the Broncos to do their thing but it doesn't mean that the offense can execute effect I'll go almost a further with you on this bed I think mostly Joe Flacco today I think Joe Flacco once it I think Joe Flacco after kinda have in a a little a little bit of a everything taken off of him like like Hey we got this game Joe don't don't stress too much don't screw up in in the Titans game we got this one the way he's been Kerry himself the way he's been talking about the office I don't have a cut for me but she basically said something to the effect of like we want to be a reason why we win this game but not just part of like along for the ride the office was along for the ride in the Titan's went kinda yeah and I think that Joe Flacco of all people knows what both sides of that coin feel like you know he he was along for the ride with the ravens a lot of the time he also strung together the reason that they got two and won a Superbowl so you've been bullseyes that coin he sees tasted in all the that the tree of of winning in a great offense and now I I I do think that you think is will chip on your shoulder when you come away from the Titans game like well you know we actually kind of stock but the defense held us together you know the run game was next out the past came with very good at it I mean it wouldn't the office of Lee that what a great game by the Broncos are flashes they made some big plays and they need to but they try to put it in kinda cruise control because they knew they didn't have to I mean that the tides getting crossed the fifty yard line in the first three quarters play that I recall they got to the forty nine once had a point all of our four template but I mean you know when you when you bottom up that well get out your office kinda I don't see the check out but you know they recognize are not needed and there can be you can kind of let off the gas a little this was the quote he said there's always that side of it of wanting to go out there and have your claim on the game and all that is like there's always a personal side going out there and playing football games I don't think that always means it's a bad thing it's like I said I think you go out there and focus on what you're doing with the idea that it's for the guy next to you would have to repair the best you can so you're not letting anybody else down but again he kind of point at the very beginning of that he kind of pointed out yeah you know what you play this game you play this game to be remembered you play this game to be a winner and you don't want to be along for the ride of your quarterback like they did there you're less your a career pack up that is being brought in just to keep the seat warm you want to go out there you want to kind of put your stamp on the game just like I didn't get a chance to really do that this last game I think he really wants this one and he's got the defense I think to do that if they can get that run game warmed up early he'll have his spots to be able
Patient Zero's Taylor Quimby talks about his battle with Lyme disease
"Hello outside fans this week. We're bringing you one last episode of patient zero and then in two weeks we'll be back to your regularly scheduled scheduled outside in programming. Thank you for listening to these episodes and thank you to those of you who've subscribe to patient zero particularly those who donated and have been getting off the bonus episodes. We've you've been making a heads up to everyone that camp our final bonus episode is going to be an ask me anything about lyme disease where we try to wrap up all the loose ends all the scary things you've read about online so if you have any questions email them to patient zero at NHPRC dot org again we really appreciate that you've stuck with us for what has been a bit of an experiment fairmount and I really hope you found it interesting engaging. Okay here's the episode what were your symptoms fatigue really bad headache terrible neck pain and back pain and spiked a high fever like got one of three and a weird mark but on the second or third day what did it look like looked like a bullseye but to me at the time it just didn't make the connection for how long did you have those three days and and you are seen by the doctor and she says what she thought of the flu and then almost as a as an aside. I showed shoulder this weird rash she was like Oh oh you have lime disease just like yeah. My name is Taylor quimby hi. I have a confession two summers ago just weeks after my colleague Hannah was diagnosed with lyme disease I got it to Hannah got caught in the middle of something strange a feud between two doctors working at the same clinic one who said she had lyme disease and another who said she probably didn't and and she wound up getting two rounds of antibiotics before feeling mostly better. It was different for me. My doctor saw the rash gave me antibiotics and that was that and that was the end of your dealings. With why am I think so you know if you're reading a lot about lyme disease as you do get a little paranoid that the little things that come up could be somehow associated with having been sick like what it like seasonal depression in the winter anxiety. Maybe never making this podcast so personally personally. I'm mind that sticking up pretty far too treating line in what lack of understanding agreement as left patients in a divided world ruled of controversy there are families that get devastated completely debilitating to some folks lifelong illness.
Despite box office domination, Disney's earnings disappoint
"I'm kim masters and this is the hollywood breakdown joining me as bellany of the hollywood reporter and matt <hes> this past week disney reported its earnings and they were disappointing disappointing despite disney having basically devoured the box office with ventures game in captain marvel and toy story foreign hit after hit lion king in the future <hes> their stock took a little shot and the reason according to chairman bob eiger and was that twenty th century fox they acquired the company and fox fox has left a couple of duds in the pipeline that really hurt of disney's bottom line. You're not just a couple of duds but he really took aim at the entire fox fox film studio strategy. He basically said that the new management disney was going to rectify some of the problems that imply quote discipline to the movie making process. I mean you look back. This is the first quarter that the fox assets were being counted against disney earnings and judging from what whatever said it seemed to surprise them how much trouble the film division was in and he cited dark phoenix. He started a couple of other big pricey bombs that were left them now. Obviously this is in his interest to do you know they had an earnings miss so you've gotta explain it somehow and it was very convenient for him to be able to point a finger at this company money that they absorbed but it does ring true if you look at some of the box office performance of these films in the fox studio had kind of been in this middling you know they had a couple of franchises but not those billion dollar franchises and they had pricey mrs dark phoenix and x. men movie that didn't do much at the box office. That was very pricey a._c. Miss i tried to walk a line sort of saying that we're taking over in. It's all going to be good now. We're redefining fox's film strategy and meanwhile meanwhile i'm not blaming anybody because it was hard for them. Over there you know there was all this talk for months and months and months about a takeover and maybe they took their eye off the ball was the implication kevin however you know if you're emma watts the one upper level fox film executive to survive this because the chairman of the fox studio stacey snider didn't make the move to disney disney. You gotta be feeling a little bit like there's a bullseye painted on you although he eicher did say <hes> you know i'm not blaming any individual yeah. I don't see how you feel comfortable and you know there. Is this question now. What is fox. It's a pared down version of itself. They're gonna make up. Maybe a ten movies but half of those are supposed to be for the streaming service. I am not quite clear yet. Who's in charge of what <hes> i. It's just been a pretty rough ride. Yeah fox's now illegal under disney just like marvel just like pixar lucasfilm and it's going to be treated as such but let's talk about a different topic here at disney which is wasn't just fox that dragged them down. They we are spending like crazy to launch the streaming service that it's going to go live later this year. Call disney plus and it's going to be the future of the company. They're trying to compete with netflixing. It's not just the disney library stuff all the children's movies and the marvel movies that are gonna go to disney plus. It's going to be new stuff stuff like a star wars series stuff like marvel original series and that's costing them a lot of money and they're not seeing any benefit to that and i talked about this in the past that the disney board is on board for his strategy which is to spend big now an end some of these lucrative licensing deals to own the direct to consumer experience and compete in the streaming world and that's gonna cost money and it's going to drag down earnings for a while yeah i mean at the idea is short term pain for long-term gain which of course leads to the perennial question. What what's it's going to happen with. Netflixing is going to really hurt net flicks. We're seeing signs of that already and we are watching an industry transform before our eyes. Thank you matt thank you. That's matt bellamy editorial director of the hollywood reporter. He joins me this monday at one thirty on the business. I'm kim masters and this is the hollywood breakdown.

How to Improve Your Self-Control
"New research might have some insights into how self control works self control is one of those things that psychologists and economists just can't seem to agree on. So it's not like we've got it all figured out. I mean by the time February rolls around as many as eighty percent of Americans will have already given up on their New Year's resolutions. So let's see if we can get some answers. Yeah. I'm not really doing great with that. What was your news resolution? Again. It wasn't a bright line rule. That was the problem the problem. It was one of the bright line rule being something specific like I'm going to work out x times per week was a little more vague like you're going to get in shape. The app didn't happen, Cody. I know you gotta talk to me we can work through of worked down a little to be fair. I'm getting there. I'm slowly ramping it up, and maybe that's the way it should be doing it based on this article. Yeah, for sure well, I just want everyone to know that my plan to budget is going swimmingly ice. So as reported by the conversation. Researchers have come up with a couple different models to explain self-control. One model says that self control is a finite resource, and you can actually use it up. Like the way a battery loses its charge. The other model says you can build up self control the way you'd build up a muscle by exercising. It psychologists and economists have debated these two models for years, and that's partly because it's hard to conduct behavioral research. You can't just assume participants in tests fully understand the questions you ask them. And you also can't assume they're answering. Honestly, that's why researchers at the largest biometrics lab in the US came up with a new way to conduct this research without having to rely on what volunteers told them. They're big innovation was that they designed tests that looked at physiological responses of participants for example, one test to measure self control had people focus on a red. Bullseye on a computer screen without looking away. The researchers used I tracking software to precisely measure when self-control kept them looking at the bullseye. And when they looked away the experiments also measured facial expressions and brain activity, and they found that both sides of the self control debate were right for that bulls side test, they found that most people would hit a point where they just didn't keep looking some subjects stuck it out and kept focusing. Sure. But then in a second test right after that, they demonstrated less self control these results support the idea that you can use up your self control like draining battery on the other hand participants who eased off when they hit the fatigue threshold showed more self control in the second test. That means they'd exercise to just enough self control in moderation to build it up and keep using it for the second test which supports the idea that you can kind of build up your self control by working at like a muscle. Here's the takeaway. If you want to stick to that New Year's resolution passed February first off remember to pace yourself set goals. You can reach and don't overdo it. You'll drain your self control battery. If you just keep frustrating yourself and second remember that small acts of self control can build up over time instead of going full vegetarian overnight. Maybe just cut back on one or two servings of meat every week until it's out of your diet same with added sugar or any other diet changes. And finally remember that improving yourself control in one area. We'll help you improve it in other areas. Exercise that muscle

I even did a challenge a couple of years ago big big challenge huge fan. So so nice to be here with you. Oh, that's awesome. Thank you for saying that I have an important question for you. Do you are do you like Christmas? Are you a Christmas person? Yeah. Yeah. I am born and raised in the in the valley of L A, not any huge religious sense. Just celebrating the equinox. Celebrating you know winter. And and all that. But yeah, we always had a big big Christmas. Do you have fond memories of Christmas when you're okay? Well, of course. Yeah. Wow. Is it was it in the valley? Was it like the most classic? Yeah. Nineteen fifty suburban Christmas imaginable. Yes. Absolutely. Hit the nail head my mom. We had this huge picture window looking out over the the backyard small house, but nice big picture window. She would do a Inc. Incredible painting issue was quite a great artist. And she would do some incredible Christmas. Actually, she did it at Easter also and in other moments, and she would do this beautiful. You know, what do you call it and not graffiti? A big painting on the window, and then with you know, poster paint and then wash it off. Oh, yeah. So we we actually had very very classic of. American graffiti, Christmases and halloween's and thanksgivings, and you know, all that stuff. Yeah. Very Norman Rockwell. Did you listen to Christmas music at Christmas time when you were a kid. Yeah. Not necessarily because I wanted to. But that's that's what they put on. Because when you're a kid, your parents run the machine ran. Well, I mean, some of that stuff is some of that stuff is really good, especially at that time argue with with your with your NAT king, Cole's, and your, you know, the crooner's made some really great Christmas music. Oh, no. And funny. You should mention him because he is one of my favorite my influences. Vocally musically were people like NAT king Cole. Johnny Mathis who had just met actually. You know, the Sinatra. I who I did meet a young my influences were all that stuff. And yeah, I love love all that stuff. What was the best Christmas present you ever got a kid who? Well, great cruel question. I think it probably was a Lionel train set a big one the regional full-size, you know, mess Edano gauge it was but and my dad who who was very handy with building stuff. He built me a a big platform in the garage where the train set would you know, be set up. So that was probably at a big Lionel full gauge, I don't know what they're called. But now, but probably a train set that was probably an did you get involved in all the mechanics of it? That was like the dawn of computer programming was people who are really into switching their train sets. Well, back then, you know, it was still a steam powered. We had to actually put real coal in the in the engine. I've always been very very into building stuff. I have a actually a a woodworking furniture company with my daughter, call Dolan's, daughters, fine furniture. And we we make handmade. A real high end kind of custom furniture stuff in workshop that I have I've always been into it. My dad was in over the years. I I got into it even deeper and deeper, and and now I have this business, and I do it for the love of it. You know, and I was going to be an architect that was my plan really because you started acting as a kid. I mean, both your folks were actors if I remember incorrectly did was that like the family business or was that something that we're trying to keep you away from? No, quite the contrary. It was the fan family business. My dad was an actor quite successful. My mom was a singer actress in till she started having kids, and then she became a stay at home mom which thank goodness for us. Of course. It was wonderful. But my dad did real well signed a Howard use of all people for a while. And I had my first television series when I was ten it's called circus. Boy was on NBC, national, you know, big network show..

"D A fund dot org. This is NPR. Bullseye. Jesse thorn this week? We're doing something a little different. We're looking back at the life of one of my favorite bulls. I guess ever Ricky Jay he died last month, the age of seventy two he was an actor and a magician one of the greatest sleight of hand performers who ever lived, and also perhaps most importantly, a man who could Pierce a watermelon with a playing card. He was also the author of a bunch of books including many about the history of magic and unusual performance. The books he wrote focused on overlooked figures. The people nearly forgotten by history who he found through his extraordinary research. The last time I had him on the show was in two thousand sixteen. He had a new book out at the time about Metaxas. Buchen gar Buchen was an artist and calligrapher born without hands or feet and only twenty nine inches tall. The book was named after Buchen girl. Billing it was called Mataya Buchinger the greatest German living. One of the things that this book is about above and beyond it simply being about broken guard. The man is about you. And this kind of lifelong pursuit that you've had of these little scraps of information and nice little scraps of information. I guess I mean it literally often. About this man and his life. I I wonder if you could tell me. The furthest you've gone to acquire something in your really extensive collection. I mean, not the literal furthest, but what is the most you have done to get a thing. I don't think I can reveal those vaccinated. Well, I was talking to this stranger on a train. Exactly, exactly. Well, I I mean there are stories that I tell in the book. Well, for instance, I'm happy to tell you the story of the first piece I acquired which was from the magician. Melbourne Christopher that we spoke of earlier Christopher as I mentioned was friends with my grandfather. And he was quite a formal fellow. I remember the first time I said to him Mr. Christopher. I'm really interested in Matthew booking. Erin. Do you think it would be possible for me to come over and see your collection and particularly the pieces relating to Buchinger? And he said, I'm kind of busy this year. Ricky. Overcome that which in itself may answer your question. But eventually by calling him every time I came back to town. He did invite me over, and we were nude our friendship from when I had been much younger. And at the time. I I'm guessing I was in my twenties. I happened to get a job performing and the Shakespeare festival in central park. It was actually my first acting job. I was hired initially as a consultant to do a levitating of titania from the Bauer and Midsummer's night grain. And I was also offered a role in the in the play. And so he lived very close to the park on central park west than many times during the run of my particular summer in New York. I wound up going to his apartment, and we really enjoyed talking about magic and the history of magic and one day. He said to me. Rickie I'm planning to sell duplicates from my collection that are in my house in Baltimore. And if you'd like to choose one, I'd be happy to have you do that. He said, I won't give it to you. But I will give it to you. I will sell it to you at a fair price, which I'm sure would be considerably less money than the auction house swan auctions in New York would be selling it for and I came over to his house, and I looked at many objects, and I chose a book that was a truly rare book was actually the first magic book ever published in New York. The Duke and academician hocus pocus junior by Henry, excuse me. Hocus pocus not hocus pocus junior. Henry dean and this one for eighteen seventeen. And he seemed very upset I chosen this even though he was trying not to turn that. This was really the bookie wanted to feature in the sale. So he offered me say what could I possibly take something else? I was another book, and he complimented me on it. But the other happened to be imperfect. It wasn't completely intact. And I think he saw that. I was a little upset even though I was trying not to be and he was being very generous. And so he said, well may I offer you something else? And I said, well what I'm really interested in you can offer Chris it's not a duplicate. I said, I know you have to drawings by Matthew Buchinger, but as their drawings, you know, they they can't be their unique their drawings. And he said, let's look at them. And he took out the two drawings. And we we stared at them for a while. And then he said pointing to the smaller of the two. What would you be able to give me for this? And I had just agreed to buy this other book for even though it was a reasonable price. What for me, then was a lot of money, and I blurted out a figure, which was incredibly small, and I can tell you. I said fifty dollars. And he looked horrified. And he said is that all you think it's worth? And I said, no, no, no. You asked me what I could afford to pay and I should mention at this time that I was making. I think ninety dollars a week in the New York Shakespeare festival and living on a friends couch on thirty seven th street under a sign which said, we do not least two theatrical. And I just didn't have money, and he said could you make it seventy five, and I said, of course, and he went out of the room and came back with the peace, and he then put it between the hard covers of another book, which was actually quite a desirable. Look biography of the magician Robert Eller, and he put it in this other book and handed to me and said a stiffener to keep the peace the drawing invalid from being in any way mangled, and that's how I got my first my first booking cry. It seems to me that part of the appeal of collecting and part of the appeal of learning magic at least as as you've described it to me and and. Have described it. Elsewhere is that kind of small-scale intimate relationship with someone else who really loves this thing that you love like whether it's sixty five Mustangs, or whatever. But that there's so many stories in this book that are about I went over to this guy's apartment. So he could show me as stuff. Yeah. That's true. That's true. Yeah. Collecting is on some level. It's it's the same. Whether you're meeting with someone who's an expert in the field in sleight. And and then someone who doesn't perhaps perform magic at all certainly the vast majority of people who collect these rarities or not performers, but they can often exhibit extraordinary passion about them. And you do wind up in these tiny little worlds where you're discussing this off arcane material. And yeah, one one would say, I've I've traverse many many a country looking for pieces and getting it crazy situations with folks, I think there are a lot of stories in the book about being unable to purchase things initially and able to then get them twenty years later thirty five. The story about the Melbourne Christopher, and and the two pieces that he had the one that he sold me. Then literally a couple of weeks before I finished the book, I was actually able to obtain the other piece which had alluded me for thirty five years. Do you find that when you are? Reading about these people who put on these elaborate and unusual forms of performance. That admiration is one of the main feelings, you have towards them, even when the performances can lean towards the, you know, the absurd or the ridiculous. Yeah. I think I'm more inclined to enjoy them when they leave the absurd. Ridiculous. But sure, yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. What will you there? There are these lovely verses describing in the book. And we talked briefly before we came in here, and you have a clear favorite and even know a bit of it. And I wonder if you might recite what you can well it's from a broadside that that may indeed be unique. And it's called Matthew Buchinger, the greatest German living, hence the title of my book. And I'll see if I can remember enough of it to make some sense. See gallons wonder and behold, this German of imperfect mold no legs, no feet. No art, no hands. But all that. Art can do commands. First thing he does. He makes a pen. Is that a wonder well what then why next he writes and strikes a letter? No Elza Varian type is better upwards downwards backwards forwards in short to every compass point though, shortened at the elbow joint, the foliage around he displays does more are admirations raise for hair figures to the I they pass but their letters through a glass, the he with double art can right at wants to please and cheat the site. Well, Ricky, I sure appreciate you come back to be on bullseye. And I hope you'll come back whenever you're up to one of these amazing things that you're always have to. My pleasure..

"They might just be like, I gotta support this dude because they don't have many, you know. Yeah. There was pressure. They're hard to manage. It inside yourself like even when you're facing.

And you probably you're probably thinking of all the things that you. Yeah. I have running catalog. I think it's like this. It's like it's not that. I was I wasn't messed up when people poured their heart out, and when I heard truth, and their voice, I could still tell when someone asks you for photo or something when it's like honest. But then there's this other portion where it's they're not asking you for a photo. They're telling you that you're gonna give you there. You're going to give them a photo. Because what happens when you're invited to someone's living room every single week in mass, and at that scale, and with that type of conversation around it, you are now property of that thing, you are now property to people's physicians of who you are they go like, even if they don't explicitly say, you are mine that's the feeling that they project out you can tell when they think your not a human. But rather this theory oil thing. Or this metaphor for an idea or even just a character? Go you are this character. But those are the moments that really messed me up actually was the dehumanisation of me because in some weird way I had never even been fully human outside either for myself because I was mostly just conforming to another pattern. So then I fell completely empty for a while. And then you know, you grow up, and you stop you figure it out. But that's where it was a weird place. It's very weird place. Is there anything that you feel that passionately about in the world? I mean like, I do you have a Star Trek tattoo or something. No, I don't know why I have some favorites. But I don't know. I think my egos too strong. I got to aggressive of an ego. You know, my grandmother recipes, but she is the family like go getter, and she was hard core about winning most things, and you know, I don't know if that's in me. But I definitely can relate to in some ways. I mean, if it's not in you, are you can you can do it on screen. I'll try I'm trying. That's right. Right.
