Ding Dongs in the Way
"Book back to almost famous minute. Where we're discussing. The two thousand Cameron Crowe Film almost famous. One Minute at a time. I'm Eric Nash. From feels like weezer foresight from. Let's say edge of tomorrow minute. Mcc pleasant From the World. I'm a comedy writer and Just elated welcome. Suzy glad to have you on my. I think I became most aware of you at least kind of recently from a star wars minute and and then then even recently. You're on bull. Durham in it. I got I am tearing up the minute scene. Yeah it's pretty great. You're knocking out a wide range of genres to hear from. Yeah yeah to the sports to the Rock Rock Music Rock Music David. This is your first time with us too. I shouldn't they certainly shouldn't forget you but you're kind of our our unofficial co host happening. He's cuppers minutes that we're going to have you. Yeah good good to be here Big Fan of this movie some. I'm happy to do as much. Co host duties. You need me for saying yeah thank you. Yeah we always have. We always have either of you back For other minutes but this man is meant forty six week and it starts with Russell getting electrocuted and ends with Marc Maron yelling at the band in the electrocution scene man. That's pretty grisly. I think Russell does a pretty good job of well not Russell. But you know that actor's name thank you. Yeah it seems to try and say it disappears from Ed. Bill does a good job of making me feel like he is a real lump of meat that just got cooked on a state of man. It's it's disturbing Yanni really keeps it up to. I mean it's there's there's parts during the sped next to especially Where he just he just really continues to be really out of it really well that they didn't know one called it an ambulance. That's buried the seventy lake. We're like mine. You're just got electrocuted a little bit. Because because I've got a little bit of a morbid streak I had to look up other famous onstage electrocutions. Ooh Yeah so Turns George Harrison was electrocuted in the let it be documentary so you can actually watch him put his lips to the megaphone and get like a little shaky doesn't collapse or anything like that but he does sort of back off shows a little bit of visible pain and you can find that clip on YouTube Keith Richards I was thinking I was going to have to wait until Peter Jackson's done here with Dr. Welby reassembling of Lee keeping it in keeping that part. Maybe that'll be the focus of it. Now lose be like the movie where George gets electrocuted Keith. Richards was also electrocuted. But it was much more like what happens on stage here In nineteen sixty five in Sacramento. His Guitar bumped into an ungrounded MIC stand. Apparently sparks flew in. There was a loud bang and the manager actually thought that Keith had been assassinated. They did rush him to the hospital unconscious and heap. He did not wake up until I think it was later that day in the hospital and he woke up and said man that was good. Probably Rush. I think I'll do that. I thought of. I haven't seen a movie since it came out in theaters And so I forgot. I forgot everything because I know a larger memory and yeah so when I watched the minute before I went back in like watch the rest of the movie And I was like Oh if he on drugs flake I was like are they pretending to be elected because he's on drugs like I couldn't remember if there was like a drug thing so anyway but but it makes sense that he gets electrocuted. I guess it's just like because you don't think about rockstars. Getting electrocuted probably happens a lot less than it did in the seventy S or sixty S. Or whatever when you know now that technology is pretty good like but I wonder if anybody has recently only guess you looked it up like actually. Isn't that famous? Still have you for sure there? I mean there's a long string of them from the seventy so it was definitely like a you know we quit and quite figured out how to ground these things yet. like As freely was electrocuted from kiss and he actually wrote a song about it called shock me later on and then but there are actually people who died from electrocution In the seventies. Yeah Yeah let's Harvey from stone. The crows which was sort of a pub rock band in the early Seventies. He died in in Wales from poorly grounded. Mike Electrocution and Keith Ralph. From the yardbirds died in his basement recording studio from an improperly grounded guitar apparently but yet there's actually a kind of a grisly video. You can find of the band. Hot Hot heat Playing an outdoor festival in Ohio. Somewhere in I don't remember exactly what year it was like. Fairly like the twenty tens. I think where the one of the guitar players get electrocuted and collapses and it's very similar to this like no one really realizes what's happened until he's been laying on the ground for a couple of seconds and then you know the music kind of slowly fades out and everyone in the crowd was like what's going on and it so it's it's still sort of a modern problem. I think trying to put on an outdoor show with you know. Weather conditions in long runs of cable across a field and things like that makes it more dangerous. But Yeah Yeah. I didn't realize how dangerous rock and roll lists the threat and there's other I think really good acting and decides besides just Russell Billy's You know I mean there's there's all this confusion is going on you know and then that's that's actually what jeff bb says. Hey what's going on we here? We also hear like this. Maybe I got it from somewhere or some Transcript site whatever but stinking stinking roads you know so. A roads roads fender bass wise at coming roads. Some some kind of Either Anchor Guitar. Some sort is the root. It's like a brand name erodes Oregon too but I didn't see any of that hanging out instead. Yeah and noticed that both Jeff and Russell. Have like to have two microphones on their MIC stand Sort of tied together which was kind of a weird seventies thing that they did do. That was Sometimes if they rip especially if they were recording the show. You'd have one Mike that fed the PA in one that went to the recording stuff But apparently the grateful dead also did this sort of a weird early form of noise canceling because they would they would put their speakers. Grateful dead put their speakers behind them and did a lot of like weird separation so like the base when we came out of this portion and the guitar came out of his portion to train gift. Things a little more dynamic separation but apparently if you put too close together and you do one in positive polarity in one in negative polarity sort of does some fancy noise cancelling thing on really know but apparently is common in the seventy s until we figured out you know plug ins and laptops and things so very cool. I'm writing so much I do have been baby myself. I was GonNa say you wonder if he's ever seen that before but yeah well the the big thing I've seen is that You know it looks. It seems like there's there's a there's a fair amount of duct tape that I think has happened there at at at Russell's microphone and I've seen lead singer do that before I've done sound work with a few bands quite a few years ago. There was one that Kevin just started going crazy with taping like okay. If you want to do that you're that that's interesting. I wouldn't at seems unsafe. Well I don't know. Duct tape is Great. I guess no don't don't don't know absolutely. I never thought I came from the south. Everything's held together with duct tape. I'm the other thing that that that's at. The very beginning of it is the that the plumbing song is ending. I mean it's not really ending. That's not supposed to end but it's ends because of everyone leaving their instruments in running towards wrestling then than certainly away getting off the stage but You know in the draw. I think in a normal fashion. I think the drums are kind of the one that kind of goes along. The drummer can just be on his own groove and I mean he's sexy Griffin centrally and. Yeah he and he can't maybe can't see what's happening sunders obstruction. Yeah Ding dongs. Away can't Ding dongs meaning drums. Let's that's what I'm gonNA call them now. You know what I'm talking about the hidden things drummers love it when you call me being Donner's I think too so. Oh Yeah Yeah. They totally loved that. Because it's very cool in rock and roll.
"cameron crowe" Discussed on Here's The Thing
"Dan that's led Zeppelin's misty mountain hop also from almost famous another great use of song capturing the swelling pride of will the Cameron Crowe character when he loses his virginity. Now back to the Real Cameron Brian Crow on making a movie that is not a hit. Is it painful. It soul searching to you. Get an a mini van and drive cross country Intrigue Meditate to great question. You do in the wake of the one we sit there and go. I miscalculated something. You definitely do that But you you also know that sometimes time is is the component. That's not in play and over time stuff that I've done and movies that I appreciated that other other people on time adds a little something sometimes takes it away but it adds something so some moves like Elizabeth town got a strange reaction when it first came out. I I love Elizabeth town. I love what we did. I love the purpose of Elizabeth. Not Everybody got it but as I. It's for my dad. As as almost famous was very much kind of portrait. Sort of my mom I wanted to I wanted to say about my dad and As time goes on more and more people really get that movie like really get like when people people started to say to me. I saw your movie or I read something that you wrote and it kind of changed my life. It took me a long time to to kind of wrap my head around that and and then became something that I was so proud of. And if you're able to just like touch people in a in a certain way they remember you forever. They remember the movie movie the line or the character forever so I just love the game. It's not gonNA perform so. So that's like Kirsten dunst character and Elizabethtown down for example like understood less understood now kind of understood again with the acronym. The guy came up with to describe character. Manic pixie dream. Yeah well also Lucille Ball. You know Mary Tyler Moore Totally Mary. Tyler Moore and And that character was patterned after a real person. So it's kind of authentic too but the thing is it's disappointing but then you never lose the desire to like get back on the horse and just like you know stand doing what how you doing meaning perform because it is a business according to plan but you go right back into it the same way you do it. You don't change the way you do it. I've when I first started out like given the opportunity into do it my thing was like I wanna make movies about the people that never get movies made about him and I still believe that I still like say anything. Was that for me. Like a guy like Lloyd Loyd I mean it was patterned after my next door neighbor. Really who was just completely unique. soulful guy lived died added. A very young age was like a young motivational speaker. was you know fledgling kickboxer. I was trying to figure out the main male character in the script and this guy knocked on my door. I said I'm from Alabama. I'm here in town. My father is under investigation for income tax. And I'm going to be doing some kickboxing later tonight. Would you like to come see me. No Oh I'm busy trying to come up with a creative character wait a minute come back. Yeah combat and that that guy actually. I didn't go watch him kick box. I said I might and go out to like San Bernardino and watch him kickbacks. I didn't make it next morning. I hear like boom in our apartment place you know. Boom boom boom. What's happening? I go downstairs. He's got a bag hanging from the pipes in the in the parking lot parking garage. And he's working out again and he turns around and got got black and blue. He was decimated in his fight and use. It didn't go too. Well he goes. I'm back at it next Friday. I think I'm going to do well and I want you there and it was like. This is a warrior for optimism. I love this is life. No I didn't go. Why but I went and hung with him a lot and we watched a lot together so he gonNa make a movie about him in the end in the end Lloyd was based on? Diane was supposed to be the main character when I started doing saying anything. The irony sky character was in character. Lloyd kind of took over along with lull my next door neighbor and And now is another thing. It's like real life is going to deliver you. Some of the best stories like just sit tight and listen and watch because because life is the best writer now of course when you love movies classic films whether they're in the TC GM wheelhouse or not people will say to me who you know. Who Do you WANNA work with? Who Do you want to work with us? Who Do you think? I want a BOGART's John. Huston William Holden. I just want to watch bridge on the river.

David Crosby, Laurel Canyon And Cameron Crowe discussed on Popcorn with Peter Travers
"This popcorn where I tell you what's happening at the movies and there's a movie now called David Crosby remember. My name like that was ever an issue really only for me that I don't think that is the whole power behind. This movie is my friend Cameron Crowe here who basically isn't the director but he is the producer and he did you see the back of his head in this movie a lot. You know asking this guy questions and I want to really find out the abuse that you were handed by him to really happen. We see a little of it but really there had been born and himself. David the crisis was thrilled to have you here. Things like this is really great leaving. We're both honored to be here. We wanted all that honor has now disappear. Don't does the biggest pain in the ass in the making not me I am probably I have a p._H._d.. In pain in the ass I think you certainly give yourself one. I did give them some tough. You know because that's kind of my nature. I'm a little feisty you know but I don't think anybody really was a pain in the ass and making the film A._J.. was persistent. He's really determined guy and he really will get it done. He's very determined to get it done. That's one of the things we like most about him. We'll see when we say that he's going to get done what's happening. You're you're there. You're not giving him him what they want. Oh no I've given him everything the whole time. I'm seeing the qualities that made it actually happened. He's known me since he's fifteen. He knows where he sold for Cameron. He was there. He's already been in the business for for five years. So he knew upfront he what he brought to this is a he's a consummate foam maker and be he knew me left right and center. He knows where all the bones are buried. He was in the WHO's in the dressing room. When we had that argument whatever went on he was then okay so the two of them and I had what you call a unity of purpose we we completely agreed about the level that we wanted to approach the thing which is rare in any project music or yeah? We did agree completely. We wanted to not do shine job. We didn't want to just say oh he kit because it's I'm not I'm not cute. I'm there are some people that might go in innocently to this movie thinking that you are well. God blessed to that when we didn't WANNA do it. We wanted to show you the truth about a human being as closely as we possibly could without any reservations association's on it at all no no. We'll just cover that we we all felt like that yeah union unit unanimity just complete. We all agreed to level because we didn't want to do the kind kind of shine job that most of the documentaries are well even within if you did even if it was just you going over the highlights of your career. That would still be some movie. The fact is there's no. <music> buttering anybody jokes at all thinking if this was me and it was remember my name I think we have to have that moment you notice. He used my phrase butter. He's in the I've heard to use that was you that was me I thought issue turn on the candidate. I have no right to do that. I really thrilled not here. You use my phrase because I think that's a great way to see didn't didn't tell me what he thought. I wanted to hear. He wasn't you know polishing. My apple makes him angrier. If somebody is trying to do that that would if they were saying. Maybe maybe don't don't generally like it. I like it. If you talk to me. Straight yeah which is one of the things that we have is he like I said he was there. He knows and when he doesn't pull his punches at all neither this A._J.. And that that was that degree of honesty made me fully confident about do the two of you get together on this particular project because he do in two A._J.. Eaten and David and just went into them as you will. It was J.J Abrams office because we were doing our hit showtime series roadies and we ran into to Iran's David in in our friendship and and H._a.. And they were talking about doing a documentary and immediately you know they were like Oh. Come on board with us the my again. We're doing this thing and everything but and I saw David's is that he was ready talk like he wanted to go there in this film and I said first of all as a fan when I watched this thing. I don't want to see a lot of talking heads. Forgive me but like you don't need a lot of people just put the him and you get them. Mike Him Warmly have him look like pretty much into the camera and cut out all middlemen <hes> David tells you about his life the way he would if you knew him for a while and it was a late night and you just ask them all the questions he wanted to ask him and so I said well I'll just do the first interview and have it enjoy it. You know he's the best interview ever and and I just kept interviewing him until I had to be in the show with them and that was a great day but when was the first time that you interviewed him it it had to be seventy four. I got an assignment from craw Daddy magazine to write about crosby stills Nash and young and they were opening their big tour and I've been dreaming of interviewing David as a young journalist and I interviewed him at our friend Joe Bernstein's house which was also Graham Nash next door and he just was so gracious and I had so many questions and he sat for every one of them. I'm like fifteen and he's he's saying. What else do you want to know? What else do you WanNa know he was? I was grieving over. My girlfriend's death like I'm fifteen going. David Crosby is telling me the most intensely personal trust me and I just always interviewed reviewed him every possible chance since and up until now that's all he asked of me was that I'd be honest but all taking him to Laurel Canyon he didn't want to go come on. We're not we're GONNA do that. Are you and wound up really well. Meanwhile everybody's talking about Laurel Canyon like we had to go to Laurel Canyon. He's like Oh. You're not GonNa make me stand on the steps of the country store. Thank Linda fries started. Started the eagles my God you have to Oh plea and this is what we put in the film when he those moments where he says things like there's no cinematic value in this whatsoever and he turns his back on the camera to save certainly yes he came in grump and he got me totally caught me being a grump absolutely then we get him to go in the Laurel Canyon country store which is really the citadel of that whole period as it exists Nessie. I see this is what you get so he walks in and he's looking kind of poetic and I go cross you know what did this place represent to you and he goes. You should see in the movie he goes. What did it represents the place where we came to get the grocery walks off camera and deal harasses the per poor person behind the counter but then he turns and he starts seeing these pictures including the doors which he has a little thing to say about the doors but Peter he goes outside and sits at the table and says the most intimate stuff of the entire interview series but that's because you asked me those question you you're just proud of it because you managed to produce at the store that's right 'cause he could've asked it? Somewhere wouldn't have been picture wouldn't have been a good shot at all so it had to get asked in the right place. I guess so for you to respond to tell me he knows what he's doing. I I am saying that it can learn the hard way because see he has kind of a baby face and you kind of trust and that could really read you up the wrong road but no it didn't because well can we show a little cook. There's there's a clip of you because what I love when you get into what you're doing whether you're excited by somebody or not excited that is there's something in you that gets kind of possessed by what it is in here in this clip slipped we have you're talking about culture fantastic. I looked pretty silly but it's funny. the the You look excited by what what you're talking about the movie we didn't know how to start the movie and we just decided decided one day that we were going to start at ninety miles an hour the story right all right well. Let's take a little peek at this and then inducted in men's room. I got my head against his Pew Green Tile. I can still remember the color of the tile okay. It's going to be right now to get it together. Now going to be okay. Somebody kicks the door Bam. It's train. He's kicked the door open because he's in playing at the most intense level you could ever imagine in your life. He never stopped soloing he still soloing and he's hitting the thousand mark. You know he's like burning. I never heard anybody it'd be more intense would be than in my life in that little bathroom tile I
The Internet Responds to the New Trailer for 'Cats'
"The trailer for the movie cats uh-huh so curveball if we could create a vast distance between quality as vast distances possible from the South Pole to the North Pole and back again that's cats to once upon a time in Hollywood in my mind Chris. I Really WanNa know what you thought of the cats trailer. I'm starting to lose the La- grip on the road pure man like I don't know. I don't really know what my purpose and role is in this culture if this is what we're doing wow if brought you to your knees. I'm a fake animal that sings. I don't need me. You'll need my takes like you know what I'm saying like retiring. I'm I'm just saying that like I have nothing to offer. Cats culture cats culture yeah. What's what is it? What are your dog guy? You know wish that Milton in could sing no did I need to see James Corden as a cat various other people as cats. I I don't know who this movie is for other than intense fans of the extremely long running winning Broadway musical cats which is utterly mediocre musical by all accounts not really in the in the Pantheon of the great examples of all time memories. JAMMIES is okay but you know what what else. I don't know they've assemble levels <unk>. Dave assembled a lot of talent. This has like all time stinker at non it. I think it has all time film twitter meam Lord written all over and we find out that film twitter is not the real world. I think three hundred dollars yes. That's the big question is is the trailer hit on Thursday. Everybody acted as if they got a star is born but in reverse yeah they could that they were they thought was going to be bad and it was actually worse than they thought it was going to be and they they left at the chance like a cat right to make fun of it can can I just read some of the names of of the characters lease due. Taylor swift is playing a cat named bumble Arena Scher eagerly anticipating that performance Gordon is playing a cat named Busta for Jones Yeah Yeah of course as the call me that Jennifer Hudson Grizz Abella Yup the crucible is the singer of memories rebel Wilson Jenny any dots yeah cool cat names racism creative writing Cinderella tighter. Yeah I know about that guy little known facts about cat. Isn't there something Jelica yes little known. Fact about cats is Andrew. Lloyd Webber was nine years old when he wrote it surprising that we're not but <hes> so you guys are. I'm not anticipating this movie not that much snow. Would you say you're anticipating it less than Topgun Maverick. Yeah I mean I think that if if you could if I could get in a time machine and they were like do you WanNa go back and kill Hitler right or you know Bassy Alexander the Great Cross the Russian steps I would like can I just go ahead fifteen months to see top gun to in the span of five minutes you have retired fulltime cultural commentary and you have stated that rather than kill Hitler. You would like like to go forward nine months. The high stakes here. I can't imagine listen people's choices of their own choices it I could not. I can't imagine sitting through this movie. Here's the here's the issue with the realistic take on cats. What's the genitals where are they? What's going on with them? You see I'm watching trailing arm like I'm expecting to see a para harakat nuts. Are you not you are because it's a realistic moved in this. Why are we doing it? Can they wear pants. Why are they not wearing pants? WHO's Coordi- character Busta for bus drivers got like a little petticoat yeah? He's starting it some wearing pants summer. Not What is the deal. What does the deal is this exactly what you hoped or hoping the Jason would imitate Jerry Seinfeld seeing the trailer for cats so yes? This is exactly what imagining
