A highlight from Part 1: USAs World Cup Collapse, Basebrawls, Jets Optimism, Life in The G-League and The OC 20 Years Later | with Gabe York and Zoe Simmons
"Coming up, an unexpected two -part podcast cameo from me. It's next. We're also brought to you by the Ringer Podcast Network, where we turned over Sean Fennesey and Amanda Dobbins' big picture feed to Brian Raftery. It's a narrative podcast called, Do We Get to Win This Time? How Hollywood Made the Vietnam War. You can find it on the big picture starting on Tuesday. And it is an idea I'm really excited about because it came from a class that I did as a senior in college in 1992. Me and my friend Horgs talked a movies professor into doing a special Vietnam War movies class where we watched basically every Vietnam War movie that had been made up to 1992 and then tried to write a big picture term paper about it. And the thing that was really fascinating about that class and something that stuck with me was just that whole concept of Hollywood reinventing the entire Vietnam experience under the premise of, Did We Get to Win This Time? So we got Brian involved and he turned the idea into an awesome, awesome podcast. I even went and dug up the term paper that I wrote 31 years ago. I thought it was gonna be horrendous. It wasn't bad. I was kind of proud of myself, retroactively 31 years later. Anyway, Do We Get to Win This Time? How Hollywood Made the Vietnam War. It is gonna be in the big picture podcast starting on Tuesday. So that's one piece of business. Second, new rewatchables on Monday night. It is the 300th movie that we've done. It's a special one. We're doing National Lampoon's Vacation. It was time. Meet Chris Ryan, Van Lathan. Yeah, and Van was pushing for it because we wanted to do Christmas Vacation during the holidays and you can't do Christmas Vacation. If we do National Lampoon's Vacation, super fun. Can't wait for you to listen to it. And we'll be running the video at some point on the YouTube channel, youtube .com slash Bill Simmons, where we put up a whole bunch of rewatchables podcasts in case you missed it. Boogie Nights is up there now. Goodfellas, Independence Day, just a slew of them. So if you're bored and you wanna throw on some rewatchables and watch us make fun of each other, there you go. Last but not least, I don't wanna say this is the most important, but it's certainly the thing I spent the most time on. Our documentary that we did about the G League with Religion of Sports and Ringer Films, we combined, and it is premiering on Tuesday, August 8th. It is called Destination NBA, A G League Odyssey. It's really good. We immersed ourselves into the G League season. We followed Scoot Henderson, Gabe York, Ryan Terrell, Mason Jones, and Denzel Valentine. And the big question was, what is this world like? What's it like to be in the G League? And I am really proud of where we landed with it. And we even have, much later in this podcast, Gabe York is gonna come on. He's one of the five that we followed, and he's gonna tell us what it's like as you're holding on to your dream in your late 20s. We try not to spoil the doc too much with Gabe, but I really liked him. He's probably the guy that jumps out of the doc in the most sympathetic way. So look forward for you to watch it. It is prime video, Tuesday, August 8th, Destination NBA. A G League Odyssey. You love basketball, just watch it, it's good. So there you go. This is gonna be part one of a two -part podcast. Gabe is coming up later. My daughter Zoe Simmons is coming up later because we did a whole bunch of OC stuff on the Prestige TV podcast. I was even on two of the episodes. But I ended up watching season one of the OC. And my daughter was watching with us and loved the show. And she was born a year and a half after it premiered. So me and her broke down season one from the perspective of what is it like when somebody 18 watches the OC, a show that is now two decades old. The anniversary was actually August 6th. And what she liked, what she didn't like, what people aren't doing anymore for her kind of audience. And we just dove into it. So that is much later. First, coming out of the gate, I'm gonna open a six -pack because we have a lot to discuss over the past three weeks, all the stuff I missed. So that's gonna be part one. And then part two, which is gonna go up later on Sunday night, me and Rossello doing this evergreen idea that we've always wanted to do. And this seemed like the perfect time because nothing's happening in basketball. So that's gonna be part two later tonight. Part one coming up. First, our friends from ProJax. What's up? All right, I'm taping this. It is Sunday afternoon Pacific time. And I'm gonna open a six -pack. There's a bunch of stories in sports and culture that happened over the last three weeks. I was just writing stuff down, things that would have been fun for podcast segments. I was just like, man, I wish I could have given my thoughts on that. Just gonna rip through them. So I have six and then maybe a couple bonus ones at the end. The first one, the biggest one, was the US women's soccer team, which lost today in penalty kicks to Sweden, scored zero goals in the last two games, scored one goal in the last three games, and that was off a corner kick. You could feel from the beginning that something was off with this team. It was all the ways. You knew in a checklist of what are the red flags? There were just red flags galore. And the only person who was really calling it out in time over and over again was Carli Lloyd, who was doing the Fox studio show. And she was the one person in the horror movie who knows the house is haunted. And everyone's like, shut up. You're not being patriotic. You just wish you were still on the team. She was right. She was right from the get -go. This team, you could see it before the Vietnam game when it was like, look at the new Nike suits. Look at these new suits. And they're all like styling as they head into the locker room. And they're running commercials. And every player has a commercial. There's players who've never done anything of that commercials. And the vibe was just off. They only beat Vietnam three -nothing in a bracket where goal differential was gonna be super -duper important. And that was a huge red flag. And we did the usual thing that we've been doing since 2019, 2015 of, oh, well, they almost scored a bunch of times. Oh, well, if that had gone in or some bad luck. There was just an arrogance to this team. Like they were carrying themselves like the defending champs, the same way like the Denver Nuggets would go into next NBA season. Like we're the champs. I was like, yeah, you are the champs because the season just happened. The World Cup happened four years ago. Everyone's four years older or wasn't on the team. And you could see they wanted to build the team instead of around the identity of, here are these new up and coming awesome stars that are gonna be in your life. They were really latching on to Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe. Alex Morgan's 34, Megan Rapinoe's 37. I think one of the differences between the discourse with women's sports and men's sports is that in men's sports, we grasp for angles. And if somebody is disappointing in some way, we really go nuts. Like think of how James Harden's been treated over the last 12 years. So he's one of the 35 best players ever and has taken just an incredible amount of shit. Oh my God, the playoffs, look at his game log. Oh, he choked again. Alex Morgan, who scored twice in her first two games in the World Cup in 2011, she scored once in 2015 in seven games. She scored six times in 2019, five against Thailand in a game that was 13 to nothing, one in the other six, and then scored nothing in the four games this time around. If you take away that Thailand game, she has scored two goals in the last 17 World Cup games. This is the striker. This is the one who's supposed to be the most dangerous player in the field, who's supposed to produce goals. And she hasn't produced goals since the mid 2010s on the national level. And yet it's Alex Morgan. She was supposed to be the next one. We got to keep propping her up and pretending she's a superstar. She's not a superstar. She's really honestly never been a superstar. She certainly hasn't been as impactful as somebody like Abby Wambach was. So you have the team built around her. She's got to play. They play her the entire game, game two, the entire game, game three. She plays like 95 minutes in this game today, and they don't score goals. And the announcers just won't talk about it. It's like being on an AYSO team that your kid's on, and the coach is playing somebody at striker, and everyone's like, why don't they play Sally at striker instead of the coach's daughter? It's like, oh, you know, the coach's daughter. She's got to play there. So you have that, and then you have Rapinoe, who's 37 years old, who's just, unfortunately, great career, legendary, true legend, huge big time player. And when you hit your late 30s in soccer, it's a wrap. She looked like Yudana Rapinoe, not big Rapinoe, and comes out for the last 25 minutes of this game and can't do anything, and then misses the penalty kick. That's the thing. If you're beholden to past performance, you can't expect to succeed in the moment. And I did feel like, what were this team's strengths? Speed. They had Sophia Smith, who really was bad the last three games on the left wing. Like, she just, she couldn't even connect passes. Trinity Rodman, who's a beast. Lynn Williams, who's super fast and athletic and had some really nice moments the last two games. And then Alyssa Thompson, who's the prodigy, who's the, you know, potential tiger or LeBron of this team. 18 years old, best high school player I've ever had. They won't even throw her out there. But this was not a team that could connect passes. They weren't, like, especially creative. The coaching was just bizarre, and we'll never see that guy again. But it was like, the one thing they did have was speed, especially the forwards, and they just threw that away. And Alex, you know, couldn't do anything. So now they're out. It's the most disappointing finish of the last 25 years for the women's team. And it reminds me in a lot of ways that 2004 Olympic basketball team that we had, the USA team. And I tweeted this, I think after the second game, because that was a team that was between eras, like this one was, where all the best players on that 2014, the ones in their primes, weren't that good, except for Duncan. And Duncan was completely banged up. He'd played so many NBA games the last couple of years. I think his knee was hurt. But, you know, it was Iverson and Marbury. The talent, it just was a between eras. And you had guys on the bench, like LeBron and Carmelo and Wade, who were four years away. Kobe wasn't on the team. And it just felt generationally, like we caught that team in the wrong time. The style was wrong. And we learned all these lessons and we moved on. 2008, we win. There's a documentary about it. But this team felt like it was between eras. The Alex Morgan, Rapinoe era, which was basically done. And then you have this era coming up with Rodman and Sophia Smith and Alyssa. And, you know, it's just four years from now, we'll probably be fine. But they need to re -imagine this. And I think if you're gonna learn any lesson from this, it doesn't matter what happened four years ago. It's the World Cup. It matters what's happening now. So that's one thing. Second thing. So Jaylen Brown gets this huge contract, $304 million. Some people seem surprised that it was that much money. Chris Ryan even took a shot at it when we did our library watchables. Hurt my feelings a tiny bit. Mainly because I didn't really have a comeback. Rosella did something on his podcast about how this actually makes sense. This amount of money, when you think of how the salary cap has climbed just since 2015, and it's gonna keep climbing. And there's this world you can go into where you think about just how much everything is gonna cost in the NBA four or five years from now, that Jaylen Brown at $70 million isn't actually gonna be that intimidating. The same way we feel about Tobias Harris for $40 million now, or Klay Thompson, $40 million now. Yeah, you don't really wanna pay $40 million for Klay Thompson, but you can survive it. And I think that's gonna be where the Celtics land with Jaylen. Here's why they had to do it. They're the favorites on FanDuel right now. They're plus 470. The thing that made them the most special and has made them the most special for the last five, six years is the Jaylen Brown -Jason Tatum combo. They've been incredibly successful. The team itself has made five conference finals in the last seven years. They came super close to making the finals last year. I have now gone into the what if zone with that Celtics team where what if Tatum doesn't hurt his ankle on the first play? Do we beat Miami? They were close is the point. And when you're that close, you can't fuck around. This is not Bradley Beal resigning with Washington for 50 million a year when everybody knows you can't get past the eight seed with Bradley Beal. This is different. You're trying to win a title. You're trying to keep all your optionality open. The thing that's a little scary about it, nobody seems to totally know if he wants to be in Boston. This is something we've discussed on this pod. It's been floating out there. The fact that he wasn't happy about landing in the Kevin Durant trade rumors a couple years ago. And just in general, where the league is now, where as Woj called it, the transfer portal, where people get their contract first and then they decide what they want to do. And I think for the Celtics, they know they bought themselves a year with Jalen and they are still one of the favorites to win the title. And a lot of it's going to depend on health and Porzingis. You could also, I don't want to make the case, but you might be able to make the case that Brown had a fucked up hand last year. Cause he did. Cause he sliced his hand open. It was bleeding even during the Philly series. And maybe that was why his ball handling went sideways. Listen, you got to do the contract. It just breaks your brain. I remember a million years ago, Sports Illustrated and Inside Sports say every year they would have like a salary issue. And they would talk about these guys are making $1 million a year. And it seemed like so much money. And now where we're heading with the money, plus the NBA is the meteorites deal. The moment any of these guys becomes unhappy, what do you do? Because you're paying Jalen, let's say you're paying him 55 million a year. Plus he is the trade kicker, which the team has to pay. Right? So if he decides after a year, you know what? I'm tired of being the scapegoat. Everybody loves Jason. I'm like the middle brother of this team. I want my own team. I want to go to Houston or Atlanta. You got to trade me. What are the Celtics going to do? On top of who would want out, you don't have a lot of options and you turn into what the situation Portland's in with Deem. And then on top of it, it's so much money. It's impossible to get any sort of a fair trade for the guy. So they had to do it. And optionality the that comes out of it is frightening. I remember in the early 2000s, when the first time the contracts kind of went nuts and you would see that people get signing like six -year, $100 million deals, seven -year, $110 million deals. And the Celtics really, really stupidly traded for Vin Baker. One of the worst trades of the last 30 years for Boston Sports. A trade so bad, you knew it instantaneously. And I wrote a piece that you can probably find somewhere in the ESPN archives about it, where I compared it to the end of Thelma Louise when Harvey Keitel is running toward the cliff trying to stop the car from going off the cliff. That's how I thought about the Vin Baker trade when it happened. Then it happens and you just had this salary albatross. It's a salary cap league. And you're like, wow, we just threw away 20 % of our salary cap on this trade. There's going to be a couple of those that are just franchise killers. And whether that leads to them bringing back the amnesty clause, who knows? I wish, I've made this, I've had this idea before. I wish that they had a rule in there that if you drafted a guy, every year that he stays in the team, you get rewarded in some way from a salary cap luxury tax type thing, right? So Jaylen was 2016 draft, this would be his eighth year. Maybe like after the seventh year, because that's usually like the third contract. The guy stays in the team, maybe each year after that, he doesn't count for 2 % of the luxury tax, up to like 30%, something like that. The point is the Warriors should be rewarded for keeping Draymond and Klay and Curry from a tax standpoint, that they were that smart to draft those guys, keep those guys together. They should be incentivized, the players, to want to stay with them because there's some luxury tax stuff that the team gets. And the team should want to be incentivized to take care of those guys because it's also beneficial to them. I just wish they figured out some version of that rule. Anyway, Jaylen was always signing for $304 million. Talk to me in a year, I'll keep my fingers crossed. Next thing, I missed the running back pity party. This was crazy. The running backs all got together and they were really upset about how much money they made. And I don't know what to tell you. There's too many running backs and not enough running back spots. And I don't know if you're trying to build a responsible salary cap team in a collectively bargained era, why would you spend $30 million over two years on a running back unless the running back was awesome? Nobody even wants to spend more than $11 million on running back. So I knew that this was crazy when Damien Harris, who was on the Patriots, who I thought was really good. He's maybe not an elite running back, but a good running back, right? Somebody that if he had been on the Chiefs, he easily could have started for the Chiefs. And he signed with the Bills for like one year, 2 million. And when that happened, combined with Pacheco on the Chiefs' seventh round pick, they won the Super Bowl with him. It's just, this position's devalued. I work on this player, I've been actually working on it the last couple of weeks where I try to rank the players for blue chippers, red chippers, pink chippers, honorable mention, and have this whole point system. And so quarterbacks, Mahomes, who's the alpha of that position, he's worth 10 points. And you could even see this in the point spread. If Mahomes gets hurt, the Chiefs are 10 points, nine points, whatever, less than what they would be as a favorite. They'd switch to an underdog. And you go on down the line. Jalen Hurts, I had him as an eight. I had Joe Burrow as a nine. And you go on, you keep going down, and it's like, Geno Smith's probably a two. But then you look at some of the other positions and you have to value them the same way the salary cap values them and teams value them. Guards, they aren't worth that much. Running backs, sorry, they're not worth that much. My top running back was three points because ultimately running backs don't really matter that much. In the last like five, six years, I would say Derrick Henry was the only running back that you could definitively say, this guy almost won the Super Bowl. Like he was that good. Other than that, you know, it's plug and play, quarterbacks, it's receivers. It's much harder to find the number one receiver. Every team needs one. It's much more tangible if you don't have the number one receiver. And it's much easier to just kind of scrap together the running back position. And yet people went nuts about this. We ironically had this in the NBA with centers. You know, Vucevic, who's a really good offensive player, he signed for 60 million for three years, 20 million a year. And Jaylen Brown's going to make $52 million a year. Is Jaylen Brown two and a half times better than Vucevic? No, it's just, he plays a way more important position. You can only play one center at a time. You can patch together the center position. You could have like Isaiah Hartenstein for $8 million. You could, you know, get Robert Williams for 16. You don't need to spend what Phoenix did on Eaton where they're paying $8 and $30 million a year at center. And you don't really need to do that. You kind of feel obligated if you don't want to lose the asset. But I think the NBA is going to go this way eventually where unless it is Jokic or Embiid, the center or Bam Adebayo, it's a bonus. You could argue that was already an overpay. They gave him a huge extension. The Lakers just gave Anthony Davis $60 million a year as an extension. I would argue that's a little frightening. I feel like you could patch together the center position. What really matters in basketball is having the creator. And this was the argument five years ago with Luka versus Eaton for the number one pick. And I made this argument. It was like, go look at who wins the NBA title every year. It's always the people who have the creator. There's somebody who's on the perimeter of the ball in their hands. Even Jokic, who wins the title this year, he was a creator. He's not a typical center, right? He's basically their point guard on offense who could post up. So this happened in the NBA. Nobody went nuts. And this is happening in football. And is this where football is. If you want to make the most amount of money playing in the NFL, I don't know why you would be a running back. I would be a cornerback. I would be a wide receiver. I'd be an edge rusher. But if you're a running back, you know your shelf life's probably like five, six years. You know the money is not totally gonna be there. Now they're in this, like you have people like JK Dobbins, like, I might hold out. It's like, really? You didn't barely even play in the field. Barkley said he was gonna hold out. And then, you know, probably looked at it. And the money for Barkley is like 10, 11 million. That's unfortunately the market. So you can't fix this. They collectively bargained it. And until we get to the next CBA, I don't know how you fix it. I thought it was really weird. It felt like people had nothing to talk about. And it was like, ah, let's feel bad for running backs. All right, let's take a break. And then I'm gonna finish the rest of the six pack. All right, picking up on the six pack. We're gonna talk a little more football. I talked about the running back pity party. This is a different kind of party. The Jets optimism, which has just been stunning to me over the course of July. I have Jets fans in my life. These are people that usually have no hope and are very reminiscent of the pre -2004 Red Sox fans, just assuming the worst at all times. Why does God hate us? All that stuff. And now they have this crazy optimism based on the fact that they brought in Aaron Rodgers, who I did not think was very good last year, just throwing that out there. I wouldn't say he was bad, but for Rodgers, he was bad. I mean, we thought Rodgers was, he was the reigning MVP and we thought he was still one of the five or six most impactful players in the league. And I don't wanna read stats to you for the next six minutes, but deep balls, he was bad. Turnovers, he was bad. Leadership, he was bad. And the case for Rodgers coming back would be, well, he's gonna be rejuvenated. The Jets, New York City. This is his team. He got away from Green Bay. He's got Hackett back. I get it, but he's also at an age where we've really only seen Tom Brady succeed at a high, high level at the age that Rodgers is at. I was trying to figure it out. I have my QB ratings and I had, you know, the top tier is Mahomes and Burrow and Allen and Herbert and Hertz. Those have to be the top five. Then it drops off and it's Lamar Jackson and Lawrence. And then Rodgers, probably a hair underneath him with a chance to play himself up with those guys. But from what we saw last year, I'm not ready to put him there. So he's the 10th best quarterback in the league, probably. 10th or ninth best quarterback in the league, probably. Well, they have no offensive line. And I don't understand why people keep glossing over this where it's like, hey, Rodgers and Garrett Wilson, he's one of the best receivers in the league and Breece Hall's going to come back and the defense is really good. And it's like, yeah, the offensive line is terrible. Beckton and Dwayne Brown, sure tackles again. And then you have Robert Salah as the coach, who I cannot say I thought that Jets were crisply coached last year. Whatever he was doing with Zach Wilson was insane. No idea if that guy's even a decent coach. So I'm already worried about your offensive line, the age of your quarterback, and the competency of your coach. And that's before we get into the hard knocks curse, because for some reason they're doing hard knocks, the incredible Super Bowl hype already. And then we have the schedule, which is the AFC East has just got screwed by the schedules this year. The Jets, just for quarterbacks in 17 games, they got to play Josh Allen twice, they got to play Mahomes, Herbert, Hertz, Dak Prescott, and Deshaun Watson. And then they also have to play Miami twice. We'll see what we get out of two this year. And then a really good Pats defense. And then Denver, who knows, they might be rejuvenated. So Danny Dimes, they have to play him. It is a brutal schedule, so you have that. And then on top of everything else, you're the Jets. I was there with the Red Sox before 2004, and this is probably just as bad, where you just think the worst possible things can happen is all the time. You're not allowed to have optimism when you're Jets fans. You can be cautiously optimistic. There was an entire Curb Your Enthusiasm episode once, season 10, episode seven, about being a Jets fan. And it was called, I think, the ugly section. Nick Kroll was the maitre d'. And part of the episode was about, he would put these people in different sections of the restaurant, depending on how attractive they were. But there was this other plot, Larry's buddy who loved the Jets, kills himself. And Larry becomes convinced it was because of the Jets, that the Jets killed his friend. This was only a couple of years ago. So now they get Aaron Rodgers, and everything's good. And they're gonna win the Super Bowl. I don't see it, guys. I don't wanna step on my football stuff too much, but I'd be shocked. And Lombardi points out the defense that everybody's ready to compare to the 85 Bears. Lombardi said they had two turnovers over the last eight games last season. So that means something too. I am dubious, to say the least. If you're gonna tell me a tortured franchise actually turns it around this year, I want a tortured franchise that doesn't have expectations. Because the Lions are another one. Everybody's ready to put them in the Super Bowl or close. And the only case for them is just pretty explosive offense. They couldn't stop anybody last year. And the NFC is terrible. But that's another one where is that a fan base that should be super excited and have a ton of hype? The one that's kind of lurking that fits in this group is the Browns. Because the Browns are actually super talented. They're in a winnable division. Burroughs already hurt. And I think they're four to one to win the AFC North on FanDuel, something like that. Their over -under is, I think it climbed up.

"Good evening and welcome to the crypto overnighter. I'm Nicodemus and I will be your host as we take a look at the latest cryptocurrency news and analysis. So sit back, relax and let's get started. And remember, none of this is financial advice. And it's 10pm Pacific on Thursday, August 3rd, 2023. Welcome back to the crypto overnighter where we have no sponsors, no hidden agendas and no BS. But we do have the news. So let's talk about that. Tonight, we're diving into a whirlpool of crypto drama from the DOJ's dance with Binance to Hashkey's triumphant licensing in Hong Kong. But hold on. We're also setting our sights on eToro's legal entanglements down under Trump's courtroom cameo, FTX's Dubai strategy and the controversial halt of world coin in Kenya. So hang on tight and let's go. So the U .S. Department of Justice is in a tight spot. They're weighing the possibility of filing fraud charges against Binance. But it's not that simple. The DOJ is concerned that such a move could trigger a bank run, causing investors to lose money and potentially spurring panic in the crypto markets. The world's largest crypto exchange has been under the watchful eye of regulators worldwide since 2023. The SEC and the CFTC have already filed charges against the exchange. Senators Elizabeth Warren and Chris Van Hollen have even asked the DOJ to investigate Binance's business dealings. So the DOJ's dilemma is real. They're considering other options like fines or non -prosecution agreements or even dismissing the charges if Binance complies with certain conditions. The fear is that an indictment could lead to a situation similar to the now bankrupt crypto exchange FTX. Binance entered the U .S. is mounted on its operations. Allegations include operating illegal trading platforms, offering unregistered crypto asset securities and commingling customers funds. Binance's CEO Changpeng Zhao is also under scrutiny with reports suggesting awareness of wash trading activities on Binance U .S. The situation highlights the complex and rapidly evolving nature of crypto enforcement and regulation in the U .S. It's something of a legal gray area and consumers lack the protections of the traditional banking system. The DOJ's reluctance to file charges shows a cautious approach to avoid unintended consequences. It's a delicate balance between holding Binance accountable for alleged criminal behavior and reducing consumer harm. The potential impact on Binance's market share and its international arm is significant. If the DOJ proceeds with fraud charges, it could confirm fears of a massive bank run on the platform, affecting the crypto market at large. Folks, here's where the rubber meets the road. Our government stance with Binance is a glaring example of the distrust I feel towards central banks and governmental control. Their actions caught them between a rock and a hard place trying to regulate an industry that's all about decentralization and financial freedom. All right, folks, if you thought that was spicy, hold on to your hats. From the U .S. government's tangle with Binance, we're flying over to Hong Kong where the red carpet is being rolled out for crypto. Like, follow and subscribe to keep informed.

Surprising and Shocking Facts About President Ford You Never Knew
"Well, I didn't know the story about RN being in his office and I spent a lot of time in that office in San Clemente. I spent a lot of time at the San Clemente and which makes a cameo in this book. And I didn't know that he looks so bad when was it Hartman who went out to see him? I can't remember that detail. It's not my outline. Someone was sent by Jerry Ford to talk to him about this. And RN looked like he was not going to make it. Oh gosh, her name escapes me. Yeah, I know. He would never have said harmony. Happened was a real contentious figure. The White House was divided, basically. And the people who thought Hartmann was a useful counterbalance to the president's inclination to see the good and everyone, because Hartmann saw the opposite. And you need to have something like that.
David Lynch Was an Unusual Choice to Direct the Original "Dune"
"David Lynch, unusual, choice to direct this movie, clearly he was into it four years. It took him to give birth to this. When they gave us when dio De Laurentiis offered this to him, he never read the books. Knew nothing about dune. And he'd only made two movies. I don't know if you're into David Lynch, but let's just read his list of accomplishments. It's interesting. If you go to his IMDb or look up his filmography. Really short in comparison to other directors or producers. He's only got a handful of movies to his credit. First one is the very, very weird, eraserhead, the star of which has a cameo in dune. Then the thing that really bursts him on the international scene amazing movie tough movie to watch with John heard of course is elephant man. And after he makes that black and white movie in the 80s, elephant man, he's offered this, so you're a Hollywood guy, not really an obvious choice, a razor head, elephant man, a Victorian real story, and then this so we'd pick no. Yeah, I don't know. I mean, a lot of it has to do with friendships and what's hot, right? So what probably happened was, you know, elephant man is considered to be a fantastic film. It's considered a classic now. A modern classic. I've never seen it all the way through, actually, because it used to come on TV all the time when I was a kid. I always found it a bit difficult to watch. It's like you said, it's tough. It's a tough, it's tough to watch. So I never sat down and watched it all the way through, even though I knew as a film student, this is one of the great films of all time. I should probably watch this at some point. I never got around to it. So yeah, it's hard for me to judge, but sometimes that just happens where somebody is kind of like the bell of the ball for a little while, right? They're America's sweetheart. And at this point, it must have been David Lynch and somebody's because apparently they were trying to get David Lynch for return of the Jedi. And I'm so happy that he got, you know, got distracted and made this instead because
Lord Conrad Black Shares a Fascinating Canadian Story
"Your impending article, you talk of a Canadian instance. You talk about a certain minister of national defense, general Andrew mcnaughton, and then the long serving premier of Quebec. Will he tell us about this fascinating Canadian story? Well, in April, April 7th, I recall of 1945, a general monotony who had been the Canadian commander in Europe and was a very admired and serious general. He wasn't he wasn't some quarter master doling it that spirit issue a new pairs of socks to people at home. He was a proper combat officer in both world wars. And he was the minister of defense. And he wrote the premier of Quebec warning him that balloons made of and I quote strong paper had been sent off by the Japanese and were designed to descend upon northern Quebec and drop incendiary bombs in the forests of northern Quebec and they might also be used for purposes of bacteriological warfare, but he did reassure the premier of Quebec. This, by the way, was the same premier portrayed in a cameo role in the famous movie, Rosemarie with Nelson and Jeanette McDonald. Premiered your blessing. He assured him that these balloons made of strong paper and carrying incendiary bombs and possibly bacteriological warfare units. We're not carrying soldiers. I mean, why it would possess men of the intelligence of general mcnaughton to tell a serious person like the premier of Quebec that that paper balloons launched from Japan and propelled by the airways did not, whatever else they might be intended to do. Did not carry soldiers. It just sort of astounds me.

"cameo" Discussed on GamesMyMomFound
"Should be unnecessary stuff and pushing. Having to push those bombs to blow rocks was and then you have areas where you offenses even just you know. If you're stupid and blew up your fences you lose your i. Didn't i thought about it. And that would be terrible and like dumbing side. You get part way third. And it's like oh wait you got to go back to the badlands and defend this other elemental shrine that pissed me off and i get the i form and it makes you go back to do that and i felt it was just make the game longer. Yeah totally which was two thousand five. So that makes sense that you have stuff like that. Because if i mean even watching reviews i interviews from two thousand five one of their combined. Well this game is too short. This game is short nor the game. That was this a little too line in my opinion but that was the thing in two thousand five hundred. A game was under a certain amount of hours. People complain about it. We're now it's not really a thing anymore. People expected long game is what it needs to be respect tango. Okay the game with long enough but it was a different time back then missing call duty to had like a fifteen hour campaign or something i don't remember to. I can't tell you. But i know it was the thing i watched old ex play videos. Which don't do that by the way. And they talk about that. And i as a guy who watch a lot of retro reviews. It's definitely a thing. I remember doing the same thing myself too so it also so that that was when the complaint you will have with this game. I disagree with completely. It also gave me a bit to learn when you're when you there's a part with ruin in the stupid mountain if you have to shoot up shoot ruined across the sooner you let go a right. You have to hit the other button to transform the chill away. You will not make it in time and i didn't. It took me a bit to figure that out. Because i think okay hit the wall. Then i'll hit the button and she would never transformed time or if you're like too close to the wall it kind of gives you the error. There's enough space to transform which is dumb. yeah it's puzzle to came enemies. The puzzles you disagree. You have the guys who the ice shield you have to use the studio so yeah flex is the form that you get here and it's basically just this like wad of water with tentacles. It's the worst form by our. Yes well it looks like something out of monsters. It's real dumb. There's another form but these enemies are the worst enemies in the game. Shields fuck us. Yeah the book even tells us like. There's it's vulnerable after a does this thing but it doesn't always let you grab the shield away from them and i always had trouble with guys. Yeah it was inconsistent enough for me. the theme of the see. I can see people saying it's too short because there really is no depth to it at all has also office is just do a thing goodwill place do a thing go to a place get new power. Yeah i was okay with that those depressingly. I mean it was. It wasn't didn't. I'm glad to game wasn't any longer than what it was. But it definitely wasn't too short. But i didn't have a link to me so i guess when it when it forced make when at four like boss fights to take way too long then right. That's but we know a cameo is now back. Then you know cameo had all his promise and all this edition and then it was releasing this formed so i i guess i can see like compared to everything else going on around then. Okay yeah this..
Democrats Blame Republicans for the Outcome of 'Defund the Police'
"So now the left. They're found policy, which they embraced and promote it. And celebrate it. You're going to blame it on Republicans. And this is the problem. They'll have help. From Democrat phony journalists like schmuck to Georgie Stephanopoulos and the rest of the, uh, the Congo, Lina falls and frauds go ahead. As you know, I didn't receive a single Republican vote. That funding has been used to keep cops on the beat. No, no, no, no, no, no. Just think about this. Minneapolis voted to defund the cops. Kamala Harris. What's going on about Reimagining Police Department. Remember that folks? On and off for months. AOC can't cut on and on and all of a sudden All of a sudden we're supposed to Jennifer. Oh, it's the Republicans. Why These cities have money for cops. They slashed and look at what the cameo did in New York. He cut like a billion dollars give her take from his police force. Out of $6 billion Doesn't matter him needing money. It's a matter him taking money out of their budget budget and putting it somewhere else. The Republicans have absolutely no say in what goes on in these cities zero and these blue Blue states zero Nothing. So here's the point. The Democrats are going to do nothing about crime except to go after gun dealers an innocent Americans, Nothing The Democrats take no responsibility for their policies, which have reached the point where American citizens are being slaughtered. And record numbers. They're not going to do

Who backed her. But she came in a distant second now. Like most third worlds. Like most undeveloped countries. New York won't know the actual results for about three weeks when they're done counting the ballots you see. Have a very important election system there. It's got While there used to be a comic at the name of Rube Goldberg, and he would write and he would make these very complicated pictures and how things work and it was really quite Intriguing what he would draw cartoonist. I should say. Well, that's the election system they have in the state of New York. And so many of these Paradise is that people are trying to escape as fast as they possibly can. Called Blue State Democrats states. Eric Adams will likely win the Democrat primary. See even Even the Democrats. It looks like Some of them anyway. Having second thoughts. Wait a minute. Our school suck. Our streets are dangerous. The value of our property is through the toilet. Sure. Let me keep voting for leftist Democrats. Yeah, Yeah, so good. So the little light bulb went off now for them. It's about a five water, but nonetheless, it went off. Wait a minute. This could be problematic. So we'll see how it turns out. And of course we'll be rooting for sleep were here. He would shake things up like nobody
"cameo" Discussed on /Film Daily
"Which are boy heavy. One and chris lists molo all right. Let's jump right into the news today. Hd we have talked previously about how dr strange was potentially going to cameo at the end of one division the disney plus show but now we know a little bit more about that thanks to a recent oral history tells us about. Yeah and you know now. Oral histories are being made for shows that just a couple months ago. So that's also a new development but in rolling stones or history of making a division head writer. Jack shafer talked about the ideas that we're in play for how the doctor strange cameo with Batch would have played out in a wanda vision and she said The plan when i came on board was that there would be a handoff. in doctor. strange's participation would essentially amount to short cameo early outlines include Wanda doctor straight writing off in the sunset together. But that didn't feel quite right And felt a little tacked on another problem was if doctor strange shows up at the end where was he the whole time but she wrote a couple of variations. Dr strains variations on the final beets In their versions where. Wanda was flying past City limits in an encounter doctor. Strange that kind of thing one other idea that she had was that the source or supreme self would appear in one of the fictional commercials that showed up every episode That can invite you had confirmed were originally intended to build up to doctor strange's appearance. But you know now that his appearance after just kind of was a fun little supplemental thing but when ideas was that in the next commercial in episode seven. It'll be a lincoln minute cameo a quick image of doctor. Strange as the pharmacist in the background She's very inspired by fight. Club when Brad pitt's character is on the tv in the hotel. Where if you look closely. See for just a second. And we're like the next commercial is her subconscious. So that's something that was one of the ideas for how dr strange's cameo have a played out. Did you happen to finish one division issue. I know you i did. I had a whole conversation about how the ending was a louis appointing for me. Oh that's right that's right. I totally forgot about that. Okay so what do you think about this. These new details here. Would you have enjoyed seeing nick. Cumberbatch suited up as a pharmacist. A quick cameo in the background here without a more satisfying than what you think actually feel like the the commercial idea with the quick lincoln you must cameo is is better than the original intention for him to show up at the end and then that leads to the multi verse of madness because that feels much more orchestrated than just a morsel bloom. No things so. I like that idea of the commercial But the idea of him showing up at the end and they're like oh what's what will happen next. Find out doctor strange. The multi madness Would have just felt very gimmicky and would've taken way. Even further from the ending early fuel was very in kind of Didn't stick landing as it could have. Yeah i i like the part where she talks about. How if doctor strange just shows up at the end. Where was he this whole time in that the question that i think a lot of people have been asking about a lot of stuff in memorial cinematic universe as it's existed thus far in probably will continue to ask those questions and Filmmakers and creators and show runners and people of that sort will have to contend with that as a major saying as the universe continues to expand and get bigger. The one thing that i want other quote that kevin feige said here was the decision to pull doctor. Strange out of the wanda vision in sort of scrap. This cameo led to quote a better ending on one vision than we originally thought of and a better storyline in doctor. Strange so that makes it seem sorta like they had to rewrite Doctor strange in the abandoned At least to some degree. So maybe you know the the original plan for that movie was for him to a beep sucked into the world on the at the very end or something like that so Now says it's a better story line. So i guess maybe somebody will be able to ask him with those earlier intentions. Were as the press tour for for that movie roles out some point next year but All right let's move on to our next story here which involves mayor of eastbound season. Two is a season two possible. Chris what's going on that. This is one of those things where it's never say never but it probably won't happen So mayor of town just ended And this has been billed as a limited series from the beginning you know a one and done series but did that before with big little lies the first season was called a limited series and then they were like you know what we're doing a second season and agreed that second season was bad but so you might be wondering. Is that going to happen with mary's town. So brad ingles be who created the series Was asked that and he replied. It was written as limited series and it ends. There's no more mystery to be solved. and then he goes on to say if there was a world where we were convinced that this is a continuation of the story that honors the first chapter and does things and audience will appreciate then maybe but as of right now. I have no idea what that could be so in other words. He's saying you know. Never say never maybe if they think of a really great story second season but right now there are no plans for that. So did you finish. Mary's town kurth i did. What did you think about. The ending is was out spoiling it. If you can. I liked it. I am actually a okay with this being a one and done thing i feel like it's okay to let things the end and i feel like we as like a culture of entertainment consumers have gone into this weird rut where everything has to be like world building and a franchise and lure and like everything has to be the first chapter in something. And it's like. I'm i'm fine with like off a complete story. Not everything needs to keep going. It's okay to let things end. And i'm i'm perfectly okay with how this wrapped up and i you know i you know. I don't think it needs a second season. Yeah i'm kinda right there with you. And i feel like the idea of bringing these characters back for a second season would I guess you could maybe explore a little bit more of maier's growth in the wake of the sort of revelations that happen near the end of the season but you know a lot of The first season of the show was about her character. Specifically encountering some pretty horrific stuff like going through some some deep family traumas and to To bring the show back for a second season sort of implies to me that that the mayor character and maybe some of the other supporting characters in the show will be put through the ringer a little bit more and something about that kind of feels almost cruel to me given given halal know the the series wraps up like the idea of throwing them back into the deep end after they maybe just grabbed a a A lifesaver or something if you want to stretch the metaphor so yeah. I don't know. I guess we'll have to see how this goes but actually did you happen to watch. Maybe i have not. I'm behind on almost every true crime or crime series that there is. I still haven't even listened to cereals. So that's how far behind on things. Like what twenty four ago. I'm just very behind on these things. My only wish is that there is a second season. Which i'm sure. No one wants that subtitled the murder. Most mayor oh yes yes all right. Well i look forward to hearing what you think about merb'ys town season one sometime in twenty seven this phrase All right Let's get to our next story which involves Gwen tarantino and his novel of once upon a time in hollywood.

How Mental Floss Evolved Over Its 20-Year History
"Hair. Thanks for joining us. Thank you so much for having me. So you're the editor in chief of mental floss. Can we start with giving listeners. A little bit of context as to what mental floss is. It started as a print magazine right. Yes it actually was founded in a duke university dorm in two thousand one by two college students and Since then it has evolved into a website for curious minds where you can basically find You know answers to life's big questions or really fun and strange facts or interesting stories that you didn't know you needed to know And since we started the website has been visited by a billion people which is wild. So tell me a little more content focus so like it's it's not. It's not a newsy type magazine. A lot of its content is very evergreen. How would you describe like from land like an elevator. Pitch have what. What kind of world view is yes. So basically we are looking as you said kind of evergreen stuff were not You know we do cover like newsy stories but there are version of newsy stories. They're quirky they're interesting So we're not part of that news rat race which is nice because i do think people kind of look at mental floss as a bit of an escape from that And you know we're focusing on like weird historical stories and You know fun facts and and things of that nature. Speaking of fun facts. I i read that Mental floss print magazine made a cameo on friends. It did. it's actually been. I think it was on friends twice And it's been on a bunch of other tv shows including the oa and the magicians so Yeah for whatever reason. We've got fans in hollywood wishes which is nice.

It's cheeky little little self. Although he is cheeky so. I guess we shouldn't have been surprised bright. I believe it was the show runner of falcon winter soldier. That said there will be a cameo in episode five so hopefully fingers crossed. Nobody's pulling awan division on us to think this is actually a legit cameo. Not a putney acting with himself. Paul bny so we. I mean we have some theories. We've seen theories on the internet. But i mean so one theory obviously going around is that We might find out who the real powerbroker is and thoughts of that include the real mandarin and it goes while with the shanxi easter egg.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo again refuses to resign
"Have been moving fast. In governor cuomo's ever expanding set of scandals of the past forty eight hours from the news that his office apparently reached out to a number of different former employees to see if they'd spoken to The first accuser which seems weird an intimidating and it turns out that a former aide says that it was in fact intimidating and she felt bewildered by it to yesterday during an emergency meeting and state assembly announcing is going to be Starting an impeachment inquiry involving both the allegations of sexual harassment and assault as well as the nursing death scandal to about forty percent of his entire parties members in the assembly in the senate signing on asking for him to immediately resign and then there was this morning when representative alexandria ocasio. Cortez tweeted that after two accounts of sexual assault four counts of harassment. The attorney general's investigation. Finding the governor's admitted nursing home data from the legislature in public saying we agree with the fifty five plus members of new york state legislature. That the governor must resign. There was a letter that she put out with congressman bowman then at least eleven of the democratic house representatives from new york called for him to resign and just including jerry nadler button adler by the way and then just as we were going live. Senators schumer and gillibrand both also said that. His time for the governor to resign. As of this afternoon he said that he would would not which is what they always say until they do but he seems like a fighter jank for. What do you think is he. Is he gonna stick around no matter how many people tell them if biden gets involved yeah. I'm really curious what you think. Francesca there's one part of this tournament so that's already interesting of they. There's nothing that i'm talking about. In regards to andrew cuomo he's establishment democrat extraordinary. and he. he's been wrong on so many issues. and he's attacked progressives and good meaning people in behind the scenes a thousand different ways and a he's a political apparatchik extraordinarily now he's claiming like oh i'm just a regular joe. Your name is cuomo governor governor. Don't pretend you're one of us okay. You're an ultimate insider. Any use insider system to attack all of your opponents. You've done it for decades and and as anna keeps pointing out rightfully so the guy caught four hundred million dollars for medicaid actually overall customer is slated to be two and a half billion dollars to talk about of doing it in the middle of the pandemic delayed for after the pandemic but some of the cuts had already that he had done was the reason why they didn't have enough hospital beds and that's why he then took. Two people from the hospital was put in in the nursing homes and then everybody died nursing homes and so for all those reasons he already was a terrible governor from a perspective of people who i was gonna say progresses but really anybody critique of him is correct is my point sexual harassment issue. The only thing i have here is that. And that's why i'm curious. Were both of you guys. Think about it part of me thinks okay yes. Let's go through. The process like seles. Allegation is groping. If that's if that's true that's he should be gone within the minute right. So that's not an that's not a question. The question is how are these. Six six is a lot on the other hand. If you remember al franken it had piled up to be a big number but every one of them was like a fake picture. We took her picture once and put his hand around my shoulder and they were like. Oh levitin mike though. That's not eleven right. That's let's have an investigation so there is a part of me that says is you know. Do we have a. We sure that these are all true. One hundred percent. We can act on it and i get the other point. Which is they all. Have to be one hundred percent true. There's six of them. It looks like we've got an obvious pattern here. So francesca what are you. Oh yeah no. There's when this first broke weeks ago. I was like i've never been more sure that there was a giant iceberg underneath this very very tiny little tip that we're seeing sticking out of the water. You knew the goal and just it's it's his. I don't know. I'm not trying to be anti talion as someone like. Don't don't go to the mafias a brand new things but like the guy in clearly in exactly all the reason that you said in the ways it. He's bullied around his political opponents for years in the ways that he is so trump being in that he's got an gotten everything from his father and then also in the cavalier ways because some of these incidents were while he was rising to stardom. Which i gotta say man. It's been real fun to watch him fall as someone who was never on board for the rise who was look. It's a doing the absolute bare minimum the absolute bare minimum thing. You should do believing in science locking locking things down even though. I don't even think he did that. Amazing of a job. Yes i said it like. It's been nice to watch like. Oh here's the real cuomo and and like it's funny to me that there are so many cuomo's around this country there are so many sort of middling mediocre like kind legacy politicians dynastic politicians. who escaped by they. They assault a couple people. They bully their opponents but they kind of then. Then they get applauded. They come out with a book and they're fine. But i feel like the meteoric rise that he had under covert and the way that he laid into it so much just set him. He set himself up. It's like you could have just the way that trump could have been absolutely fine. Just doing cameos on home alone. Five or whatever it was and then he had to go and run for president And now we're looking at his taxes. So look here's my thing about resignation. I feel like it's a little bit of an escape hatch. And i think for when it comes to actually having investigation actually and as painful it as it is like having the people came forward to testify or discuss it absolutely like not or at least have an investigation. I don't know what it would look like. it feels. There would be more accountability. And i think that so many creeps and so many predators getaway in the workplace because there's no accountability to begin with so i'm not even sure if immediate resignation is accountability. Do do you know what i'm saying. Yeah i actually francesca. I love that point in that gets the another problem in the political system. So cuomo keep saying. I you know i wanted attorney general to do. Finish the investigation as letitia james and if we all believed that our democracy was on the level and politicians warn politicians. I'd say definitely finished investigation. Because i wanted to if he did it and we get it then that gives us closure as opposed to well. He's resigning you to deny it forever. Because then they won't bother finishing the investigation et cetera. Right but the problem is i. Don't trust politicians so is cuomo part of the reason cuomo's doing because he wants to delay it and then he thinks if i can just delayed thousand other political maneuvers to avoid it and the and then he keeps saying he wants so much that i a wonder is fisher. James doesn't look like a political ally of cuomo based on her previous experience right but one if she is something we don't and then they a bs investigation. Those women took you know suffer a second injustice so you think yeah and i just think it's important to mention though that like the investigation of sexual assault or harassment claim. Is it so hard because it is always a. He said she said type of situation. Which is why we have. Things like the slogan survivors right And believe women which because you have predators who will always deny it. I do not foresee a future in which andrew cuomo admits. Anything that i can be sure of. We might hear more about the stories from the from the staffers and the and the people who were he victimized but i do not foresee him being. I guess i remember doing that. No it's not gonna happen so again. I just want set that up that it's not a fair you're never gonna get to the truth kind of thing.

It was included in harry potter meets. It does make sense. But the thing i do.

Hey england is the line in unicorn the unicorn in on the passport scotland Saudi always. I just always find it weird with Highs of one's own is the is the lion and the unicorn book was interesting in that. Is that the unicorn is chained in the line is not year. That's another the red the city something do faint interest in analysis may be more in the mythology sense of like actual story. Storytelling is the idea of jesus.

So there's actual if you look at the peace there's like Dolts on the unicorn. Okay but it's not. Actually blood is pomegranate juice so the pomegranates. Arcane leaking onto the unicorn. I don't but did relate for tailgate manage so some people also think it's to do with contentment and manage leak.

Divorce wasn't wasn't a thing in because it was wasn't until henry the eighth to throw in to thrown in fifteen o nine And then obviously after catherine of aragon who was his first wife but why is it that was interesting is because hard volume symbol was pomegranates.

"Each piece each tapestry is basically cain of crucifixion. Oh wow said need to get all seven up but yes so basically. He's like starts. It's weird i need can jump So within mythology the only way you could see a unicorn is if you're a young fortune and female that was the only people that can see in accordance. Oh wow okay so if you were to ever hunt unicorn it had to be by women so within these pieces is depicted with tons of men and like dogs so within mythology cents they would not be able to on the unicorn. So that's why they believe the kind of connected to jesus and the peop- the man of the romans nagorny jesus and it pecks obviously the different stages of crucifixion and the By virgin as many And obviously so the sex tapestry of the accords kelt. But so is the whole point is the And in seventh. One is alive again which is seen as the resurrection of jesus and obviously when jesus was content when he came back can but he can't have been that can confirm these place remember like when he went to the garden lake. Any question god like why don diet basically and then obviously he was like he must have just been like. It's my taste candidate at this study's with nicole But yeah so basically in so. I can describe the peace of bear so the fence that surrounds a unicorn actually low enough to escape and the chain that is connected to the tree is actually loose enough for it to break so almost depict in the containment of being captured. Like it's happy with it. That's so interesting. I just want to point eight before we go are. Historically this is a really important tapestry is incredibly important in very very iconic which is why when we watched. I say to omega famous yet. is also been featured and lake a million other things for me the first time i ever seen it was within the last unicorn. The animated film and nineteen eighty two.

I think it was like S an extensive amount of movies to try today so it was howdy potter and the piece. I'm talking about features in the half blood prince and that is unicorn in captivity. I think also appears quite a few times. So this is what apple. ahead 'cause i've learned a law by s piece there seven toppers total okay and it depicts essentially. It's like a ton of unicorn. Okay and the last one. The unicorn in captivity is cain of seventy two drama. Cds doesn't look in the rest of them vogue into that. Wanna do the a of the tapestries action. Different dorm rooms and taken to the castle. So you do see seven. Oj here's Has so we should see. 'em think nicole mentioned the peace that we're talking about as close up over and the grefe door caller mun. No no no. The one in the griffin door coleman is the unicorn fainted so this is as big massive tapestry lady standing with unicorns under the one that i am discussing is featured in the half blood prince and you see wayne. Jenny takes hoti to the requirements. The before and i believe the requirements is heading behind the tapestry. Oh remember stand-in hand-in-hand. You ready your best strategies. Come leaving the gut thefts tapestry grape. When i see giant i mean giant it's tapestry sizes and it depicts. I his toughest you go to small medium large. So and so. The unicorn cat seventy and is a barge tapestry on eight depicts a unicorn. Encaged in a secular faints enchaine to a tree. ended by wildflowers. It was created between eighteen. Ninety five fifteen or five. No one knows exactly who created the city's okay but what they do know is that it comes from late. Northern europe sleep patterns france. So the tapestries are made with feigned will and self and it's not died with flowers so wailed for the matter for the raid and the blue so as part of the seas and it depicts the hunt of a unicorn so number one is called the star of the hon to is the unicorn at the fatan number. Three is the unicorn attacked. Four the unicorn defending himself five the unicorn captured by the virgin. Six the unicorn killed and brought to the castle and seven the unicorn in captivity.

Who again as credibly iconic female photographic artists and longo sherman were actually in a relationship for quite a few years as well. So yeah well.

"Okay so this is actually taken for the swing painted in seventeen sixty seven and it was actually a private commission front aristocrat who wanted the peace painted all of his mistress. Oh yes on a swing so he originally presented the commission as he wanted to be in the bushes underneath the swing to look up the master scart raunchy and a bishop is controlling the swing and the bat so franken. Art actually didn't lake this because of his background painting quite big biblical historical pieces. All right okay. So this he didn't like the idea so what he ended up doing was pushing the bishop more to the back and making the bishop just an older gentleman. Control swing okay. So that was the original additive. But he didn't like it as i previously mentioned ragnar was known for large-scale pieces either biblical or mythology french mythology very smooth vide- detailed pieces. Okay academic year very traditional with another tame but what. He realized voice that he could actually make more money than private commissions for aristocrats. So this thing changed. Stay o of how he worked so if you look at the piece is very playful. Always there's lots of late. Connotations of sanctuary team promiscuity. The wing is this way is compared to what you normally dedham smoking. So it pex women on a swing and she's wearing pink baby. Pink dress is very rarely and she's surrounded by lake. Lush green very deep greens and around them are sculptures that also depict promiscuity. Okay so there's a satcher of cheddar. I can't remember the actually of the piece but it's like covering Fingertips life can emphasized that. She's a mattress. This fear like they aren't really meant to be together. Take thing and then. The bought mathiot sculptured thurs nymphs which and green with algae fading much associated chelsea. And then there's a fainting that has a chapter on a fish and chip is also typical of can of cupid o k. Yeah so of course. This was a commission. Dragonheart had to work quickly. This is why if you look at the peace. I think this is why. There's a low of motion and the piece soul the quick brushstrokes. The vicious and stuff like that and then details within her dre sleek. It's just very much expressive. So the sales record was a dated style with that tame so he brought it back. So the pallet used is obviously to emphasize the mattress. She is the main subject matter. She is great paint. In contrast with a green background and even the two gentlemen cain of camouflage year and to the pieces wail so the person control swaying. He's you can see him. But obviously you're not into the whole point is this piece was made to kane of celebrate masters which i think's quake quite beautiful As a mason. no. I didn't i didn't know she was a mistress that because i knew this painting within the context of our history is so iconic bought. I didn't actually know very much about yes that's why they used the colo- warm twins on our to make our more cain of appeal. And you want to be with her..

So you're is by far one of britain's best known sculptors he was born in new york and eighteen ninety eight and he's best known for his same abstract sculptures. Which can be phoned. All over. the world moore stands a amongst his contemporaries is only has iconic style. But he was one of britain's first artists to really gain global acclaim during his lifetime. So he's a really really interesting person so the particularly piece that they have in their collection is called reclining. I must see. It's a very of if you compare the two together. There's slight differences of the length of the neck or whatever but it's it's definitely a hand mirror and this particular piece reclining Actually for the festival of britain by the arts council on this was one of moore's most famous pieces through his life on its very iconic on a very excellent example of moore's of artistic aesthetic style so the festival person just to give context was held sex years after the end of world war two and aimed at promoting a feeling of recovery within britain and the festival of britain opened up to the public and me nineteen fifty one and it celebrated british art in scientists so they went a bit commissioning only sculptures all these incredible displays of british engineering science. Developments is really just to symbolize re-generation On fainting breton finding its feet again after being completely decimated in the war. Because you have to remember. This was actually at the time. Nineteen fifty one. Wartime rationing in britain was still happening on. wartime rationing. didn't end until the put fifty three fifty four something something along those lines so yeah. It's a really interesting time in britain and everyone's the economy's jusuf starting to get kickstarted again on henry moore was approached by the british arts council and asked to make peace soldiering the making of the work. The bbc films moore and his studio and captured the entire process so from the concept to making his mccague's so mckay is a very small model of what will eventually be the large piece so from his of inception of the idea making the case and then eventually into fabricating the real life thing on initially the arts council asked moore to make something and plaster or and stolen and then decided because it was going to be a sade that really push for it to be cast in bronze which it was.

"Bottle collection has a really fantastic collection of impressionist paintings. And as does the national gallery. Actually so the. I don't know if there is a washer lilies. One pretty sure. There's a haystack series. Because money for people that don't know obviously one of the key figures of impressionism but he has a real of love off. Series in the whole concept of impressionism was focusing like nick osage on the effects light hot on every day and the constantly returned to the same subject. You know in in the morning noon night different seasons because the subject even though it was the same hey stock or poland with water. Lilies or cathedrals really lovely series of cathedrals as well it completely changes depending on the and time of yen seasons. yeah not The look completely different. And it's really the key component of impressionism. The effects light has on an object or thing or place because before within that tang pd biblical realism painted doors. Exactly exactly so. The impressionist really sort of broke away from what was considered academic style and traditional. So like nicole said this of higher echelons of paintings with a higher end of approved categories of the academy and also developments as well and things like paint so for the first team paint was produced in smaller cubes and there was also portable easily that had been invented so it made impressionist could leave or artists. Not just the impressionists could leave their studios and study. I say this is known as own clean. Air didn't know that there's some of it because of higher are but that's that's as there were two hundred fifty of the cities. I was unable to you. Know i mean we'll be too sad that we've lowest one in the titanic all main to see the obviously james cameron was wrong is never on the titanic where famous ours that word on the titanic and his lost. Yeah but money was not one of them. Even you'd sit. The castle wasn't picked. Yes so there's a picasso and the scene is well. The name escapes me. But it's probably one of his base Should really know the name of this Them sector seven angry looking women and it's actually about an eighth of the size of the actual canvases will be the one world like lying in bed tonight. Like oh my gosh is called the but anyway yes. So there's i would definitely say check out because i completely forgot that scene that she has all these year. There was a deleted scene where sheila goes round and she talks about the mall. And then i can't remember the the bad guys name ohare harborfield's fiance. And he basically says like it shifted in. And she's like matisse nar superior and that say i should and then she has the of the data is actually in the background so as the money no daycare so the takeover the ballerina so that when his so at mentioned previously but there is a picasso data antimony so the guys in the bank. The only reason why. I need to throw because i'd seen The deleted scene. And then you've got the castle once eight and out but she always talk blake. I think was her favourite. See so the data that she has co stars. As about one year year the star is a really really interesting piece actually and move up a link to italy deleted scene available on your typical amazing.

"Be viewed on my website on my instagram page and the highlights. And i really do hope that you enjoy this episode nicole and i had to fund research school just after christmas so just sit back and relax nicole and i discuss famous art and so little bit different today and this was actually a listener. Requests like of Instruction but we're gonna do the very much the same way that we did. Nicole was on for conspiracies and beefs on controversies which was episode teens. If you haven't listened to. I would highly recommend that you can have. We listen to is really interesting in quite entertaining see sources but today nicole and i are going to be looking at great art that has been included within movies. Quite it's been really interesting actually and obviously this is recorded this just after christmas. This january twenty twenty one and some of these actually with movies that i watched over christmas. I've seen them or having gone back. And we watch them. After completing art history degree. I was like. Oh there's such and such and such and such though nicole as my guest. Would you like to get the ball rolling. so what is your first artwork. That you're gonna so the film first time i'm going to talk about is the titanic. So the scene where the painting is featured actually has a lot more art working not just as piece. Okay so. Jacqueline rose inter roses. Sweet and there is a castle. There's a data and there is money and the mini piece is part of the water lily. Cds okay what in full on money money or money was a french painter. Born in the eighteen forty s and was one of the rangers of impressionism and this war lilly. Cd's is probably agree. I cus idea of what impressions was is the study of things right tame the day and seems a subject mar expansionism so trying to find the exact one that was in. The movie is difficult. Because there's two hundred and fifty paintings done over twenty four years within this war lilly. Cd's right just a very nice a casual a nightmare for great fund research and trying to figure out which one it corresponded way. There's a website By art that movies okay. An said that this was one of the ones that was done in nineteen zero five. But when i looked at the one thousand nine hundred zero five. It didn't matter was in the movie. It's the same so yeah. That was fun fun team for me. So i'm going to canada with a loophole because i can't figure out which one is i'm going to talk about the actual sees it so yeah not spots perfectly reasonable thing as fair. Think you'll lay that of me. So many painted these as i say previously for twenty four years so that was between eighteen. Eighty six to nineteen twenty and it was all the war. Least that were that was in his garden. Something that do really love. Because i was able to see the all two hundred and fifty paintings within the eighties was the evolution of money. And he's changing styles anti. He studied evolution of tame. Evolution of color. I guess different locations within the garden. She guaranteed money. Both escartin eighteen ninety three also featured a japanese bridge which is also within the subject matter as well. The one is the titanic just focuses on the least themselves because the bridges is quite iconic and he built it himself the bridge. I'm fairly certain. Yeah thanks so. That was the first one of the cds had the bridge. Oh okay so and that was league when that was done..
