Essential Practices of Successful Couples with Certified Marriage Experts Howard and Danielle Taylor
"We got off the line. Everybody howard and daniel taylor. They are certified marriage experts and during covid nineteen. I'm gonna tell you personally. Y'all i feel more in love with my wife being in saying i really right. I really appreciate it. You know what. I'm saying. Like we know like i really like you i can. I can agree with you more. I think we always say that cova magnified more which were so. There was some healthy couples. who are who got a chance to connect even more right. And then there was couples who had resentment and it strikes dormant that magnified even more right. and so. that's that's a great testimony to where relationship already. What so what do y'all think about people breaking of okay. I'm driving around the city. And i'm seeing all these signs on light post ninety nine dollar divorces so people will try to get rid of each other and is is there a way to turn this tide around you find out. I've been stuck in the house with you. But i really don't like you. I'll do all. I even risk catching covid. Nineteen just to get out of the house. Because i don't say people are really desperate. Now people i'd ever anneli desperate to to get out. I think it's important to really take the time to realize what you have in your house to really take the second step back to appreciate what they bring to the to the table to look at things from a bigger linda. This is a temporary season. And even though there may be things being uncovered that we may not like about. It doesn't mean time to like run for the door right now. It's time to kind of buckle down and work out okay. what is it that i need from you. What do you need from me. And how can we make that happen peacefully so that it doesn't have to evolve into a divorce. How do you bring people's minds back together. That first time that i saw you fell in love with you been now you know things are just different man. I love it. You know back to the fundamentals we authored a book called the fundamentals of marriage it and sometimes people get so fancy with their skill set or the desire to hope or need that they they put aside the things that originally brought them together that originally allowed them to fall in love. The fundamentals are not any any entity strong. and we we believe that there's five Things that couples could do to reconnected in the new year. Right that you have to do and take attention to reconnect and we would love to share those. Okay well please go ready in the first practical one has the house has become a monotonous place. Because we're there all the time right you know we're we're we. It's an elementary school. If your parents it's office it's it's it's everything and and so on. I've been attention all of our redefining. Our home space. One of the things that we say i. If you should do is plant after our spa offs on nights right after the kids. This lee go online. You don't have to have any money to take to to figure out how to give a great massage to figure out how to do a fantastic bubble bath to amazon with the little bit of money orders to massage oil in there. If you're saved we maybe use olive oil. If you of the plan your so after our spun nights beat a in do it. In a specific place consistently to be able to redefine a spades or room in your house so that the house itself isn't so monotonous it allows you and your husband or wife reconnect in a way that maybe you weren't doing prior to Cove in nineteen okay. Another idea is to take an online class of mutual injuries. So you mentioned earlier and howard as well about now. During the pandemic people losing their jobs and not necessarily having the finances you could pull up youtube right from your computer possibly cast into your tv and learn something new together whether it's the second language or cooking or a dance class when howard and i got married we took the damn class like a professional dance studios. We can get right. You know i i. Yeah but pulling that back out because we actually did this. We pulled it back out. The the cha-cha together and it was so much fun. Just being silly you know dancing together just reminded us when we first got together the excitement and the fun and so. That's something that people can do that fun to learn something new at the same time and cost effective right so cooking cooking as well. You know you can get into kitchen. Recreate your your favorite dish right. That's the third one you're right. You're right in there in many counties in many states you can't you no longer keep dying in. You have to take their food back home day on. I thought it would be a great connection. Experience to recreate our favorite meals from our favorite restaurant right and and and we make again. This is about connecting reservations for two. So if you have children or extended family that live in a house. This is not a male for them If they smell with the cook and tell them that they're going to be a bad by the time. This resume and recreate favors meal and bring it into your also this this. This brings the restaurant experience again. Back to your home. He create a really fun rejuvenated.
Predicting the 2020 Oscars The Big Picture
"The time has come to predict the Ninety First Academy Awards. Amanda how are you feeling about this. I feel terrible as always I just. It's being wrong in public. It's my number one least least favorite thing. It's even worse than being wrong in private. We will closely tally. All of your failures on Oscar night. Because I'll be tweeting at you directly every time you get a choice wrong and then we'll also be rehashing. Those wrong choices here on the big picture live immediately. After the telecast which. I'm really excited about on Sunday night but before that we do you have to We have to pay it to the prediction. Gods and we're GonNa go through all twenty four categories here. Yes we are now. I'd like to preface that by saying as I worm my way through the back nine of illness. My voice may go at any moment here. In which case you're GONNA have to really carry the load cliff booth style okay. I was going to say that. That's just a good summation of Oscar season and at some point to talk myself out and officer does flailing filing in the dark possibly in silence. We're we're we're just trying to get to the finish line. I am hopeful that this will not be an immensely boring. podcast about predicting the Oscars because the Oscars may be boring. I will say this is by far far the easiest year in the history of my life predicting these awards okay. You know what. It's nice that you have confidence does not this and in life. Yes it is now that means okay. That means I couldn't logically see making any other choice that doesn't mean I feel that I am right okay about I guess I feel feel the same way. There were more categories that I could kind of fill in but I there are still so many to get wrong. It's just an opportunity to get things wrong. I can't had over emphasized how much I hate that. Feeling when you would finish an exam in ninth grade at the end of it when you and your classmates your little amend etes would would gather route and chat at the at the cafeteria table would you say. Would you be the person who would say. Oh my God I failed so bad. I didn't know anything. I failed. No okay okay no because I find that obnoxious and also because I had to have like my personal confidence that I was still going to defeat all of them. Were you sitting alone like a sociopath at the cafeteria table. No okay. I had some friends but I don't know we just talked about cross country or something. Well that sounds riveting okay. Let's go back to the Academy Awards. which which is the reason for this podcast? We're GONNA start at the beginning and at the place that we sort of blasphemed earlier on the show which is with shorts. I thought we were respectful. I I want people to go back. And listen and hear what we were saying which is not that they should be cut from the show and not that shorts aren't deserving but it is a different French exercise and I just think the it was interesting to try to get into the mind of what these winners would be because I think you're evaluating on different terms because it's a different type of film so let's just make a separate thing for the shorts and let everybody have their moment philosophically I agree. It's one of the few things about the sort of workaday nature of the Oscars that you and I ultimately agree on. There are three different categories for the shorts. There is best documentary short subject. Best Live Action Short film and Best Animated. We'll start with best documentary short subject. A very few people have seen these movies. I've seen some of them. I'm not going to pretend like I've seen all fifteen. Nominees Germany's shorts category. I just haven't I haven't had the time and I'm a bad person. I have had her but I have seen some of them I've seen some of them as well feel solid about. My choices will run through the the nominees for this first category in the absence by using John and Gary Byung Cam learning to skateboard in a war zone by Carol dicing her life overtakes me by Christine Samuelson. And John. Hatice Saint Louis Superman by Sri Mantra and sign ECON and walk run cha-cha by Lord. I think the overwhelming favorite favored in categories learning to skateboard in a war zone. As my pick that is awesome attack we can move on directly from there. Okay well I just don't think we should really make an attempt to talk about the quality control of these categories stories because we're just not the experts if you expertise are actually a ton of great pieces. I was reading some stuff on wire this week. About which of these shorts are serving which are not. There's a lot of great writing about the shorts. We respect the filmmakers acres. who made the shorts? It's not Medi Best Live Action Short Film Brotherhood by Mariam. Jabbour Nafta football club by the neighbors burs wooden window by Marshall Curry Saria by Bryan Buckley or sister by Delfin Gerard. I'm going with the neighbors Wendo. I want with Brotherhood. Okay that is the that's the oddsmakers favorite Brotherhood is. Yes yes so do you. Is there a reason why you you may may change. Because the neighbor's window is is the oddsmakers like upset favorite. What is that called? When it's the there's a favorite and then the underdog I guess so spoiler well in a group of five I was wondering anyway? It's number two and I think it's been in the conversation it's and it is accessible and and I just really do feel like especially people who are voting on these are sometimes just clicking through and being like oh I guess like this one I like to football club too and I feel like that has a chance I wouldn't wouldn't rule that out yet We'll have to wait and see. The oddsmakers are usually right in the shorts categories but it can't be guaranteed because these are highly unpredictable predictable because unlike a lot of the other words. We'll talk about here. There are not a lot of guild awards that predict these words. This is really the only three categories in which we have no no data to present ahead of what you know sort of what is leading the race. What is leading the charge? So we're flying blind quite a bit. which part of the reason why we're not gonNA spend too much time analyzing final category Gorriak shorts animated short To Sarah by Doria Kusturica hair. Love Matthew. Cherry Kit Bowl by Rosanna Sullivan memorable memorable by Bruno. Colette sister by CK Song Hair. Love is far and away. The favourite yes in this category. Matthew Cherry is very active twitter user. A lot of people know oh him used to work for Jordan Peele and monkey productions is a very short. I will be surprised this one out of all three. I would be the most surprised if it didn't win. I also picked love and it made me cry and under four minutes very effective I two can respond to animated films. Wow Yeah Erica. An incredible transition to our next category best animated animated feature the nominees are how to train your dragon the hidden world. I lost my body clause missing link and toy story for what did you go with. This was a last minute change and I. I don't know whether I should admit this. And the podcast bobby. Cut this if I'm breaking a Balazs but I haven't been advising a close best friend of mine on possible bets possible upsets and close friend. Yeah no it's it's a friend. The you know a friend who listens to the podcast and identified this category. I did go toy story for because I'm trying not to over. Think things but it does seem like it seems like there could be several no spoilers. Actually there's a lot of arrows pointing at clause right now. Yeah clause just won a BAFTA clause one Annie Award Clauses clearly admired tired. Mommy animating filmmaking community I don't WanNa Toy Story. Movies went to movies. Come out. That was kind of my reasoning toy story. Three was nominated for best picture which feels like a thousand years ago but this is truly one of the most storied movie franchises ever. This sounds like a silly thing to say about a toy story movie but it is a fact there have and four films are hugely successful. The characters are beloved ingrained in popular culture. And I genuinely think toy story. Four is very very very good animated film and might might mark the end of a certain period of Pixar because not just the machinations that have happened over the years with Disney but obviously all of the sort of incredibly fraught stuff. That's happened with John. LASSETER over the years in the development stage for these movies. It's just if you look at the Pixar movies that are coming There are a lot of new properties and there are a lot of new voices that are getting to make those movies toy story. Four is old school tried and true early. Two Thousand Steve Jobs Era Pixar. That's where it comes from and and I think they're going to recognize that we could be wrong. We're GONNA find out we're both going to a story for best documentary feature the nominees. Are American factory. The Cave you've the edge of democracy foursome and honey land. What did you choose? I chose American factory as that. I'm not feeling confident. I'm not either but I wanted to die on this hill because I love this film. We gave this film best picture we really did Alternate Oscars about that this morning and I was so happy. What a lovely little title space? That was where we just got to talk about the things we liked terrifically. Well made movie. I think All of the movies in this category are are well-made. I shouldn't be surprised by how overwhelmingly serious every film is in this category every year and how issues oriented a lot of these films are it's been interesting to see. I thought when the nominations were announced honeywood play spoiler spoiler the fact that it has representation in this category and also in the next category. We're GONNA talk about. It's just unusual. That's never happened before. And so that shows a lot of support for that movie. I thought that would play spoiler over the last couple of months. Foam seems to be gaining steam for some just one at the Baptist over the weekend. We'll have to wait and see my my choices also American factory. This is part of what I mean here about saying. This was an easy choice to make because it seems like a logical choice. It's an American story. Also International Scott Got Barack Obama's thumbprint on it which I think is key weirdly meaningful. You know we. We never talked about Kobe. Bryant's passing on the show and I don't think there's a ton of reason to but obviously. Kobe was an Oscar winner. And you know some people love his film but it was a lot easier to understand his film in the purposes of his film that won best animated short. I think it's called your basketball because this was connected to Kobe. Bryant and I think people will actually look at American factory and think of Barack Obama and correlate in the same way like that is how this business works in many ways. So I'm going American factory if you told me Any of these films were GonNa win. I genuinely would not be suppressed. Don't don't bet on this category advice this category also just the nominations itself were a bit of surprise is because Apollo eleven which had been so dominant at so many awards coming up to the nominations is not included. One Nation was also in the mix and is not included so it could go a lot of different ways and I guess my strategy throughout is has been to play it safe to go with the most obvious choice and that's important because it's been like a pretty obvious yes award season thus far but we could easily be wrong. The Oscars always has a couple of surprises as it always does now. I would prefer if those surprises happened in some of the later categories and then some of the earlier categories for the sake of national entry but in all likelihood this year they're going to come in categories like this let's go to best international feature a category will not have any surprises whatsoever. The five nominees are Corpus. Christi Honey Land Les Miserables Painting Glory Parasite Yes parasite will win this award. Award parasite is a winner. This is the not the last time. We'll talk about parasite on this podcast. We can continue to go forward great visual effects. This is the category that I like to call. Sean doesn't know anything I think I get this wrong every year. That's because you always pick marvel movies and they've never WANNA love moral. Yeah congratulations not not Without some questioning questions some of their choices and frankly their visual effects are sometimes not. I've never good
