Employee Grief: What Leaders Must Do The Dying Art of Leadership Guy and Anthony Casablanca - burst 10
"And i kinda wanna focus on this one. Because it is the most undervalued and understated part of the grieving process the bargaining stage of grief that most people are familiar with. Is that phase in which you're saying to yourself or saying to the people around you. If only i would have or if maybe i should have turn back. The hands of time. Audits that have us questioning decisions. We made an if there was anything that we could have done to prevent or change these circumstances and there is a certain amount of self discovery that comes with that stage that from the outside. We tend to glaze over. We tend to tell people. Oh you can't think that way. Hindsight is twenty twenty. Don't don't put yourself through that right. When the fact of the matter is there are some there are some very pertinent tributes to those statements. You're right maybe maybe we should have gotten dabengwa. Should a force dad to go to the doctor when when he kept bailing on those appointments. You're right maybe we should have done that. There is room for personal self improvement in that stage and people will bounce around through all the phases of grief. But they'll keep coming back to that bargaining stage because it's part of our inherent address those things within ourselves to hopefully become a better person. And i think that's oftentimes overlooked especially from a leadership perspective. We don't we don't we. Don't wanna walk that path right with a grieving person. And it's a sensitive path right. You don't wanna say anything that could potentially with all of its best. Intentions could potentially be misinterpreted as criticism right but the self criticism that comes in those statements is incredibly valuable. And i never ever try and rush by my My grieving families through that stage. I let them sit in that stage for a little while. And i let them express themselves and get those thoughts out there and i don't have to say anything. They'll make their own self discovery through that process. So bargaining is is really really imperative typically then the sadness kind of sets in this is what happens after the funeral service and this is where the leadership part of it really comes into play bereavement policies by and large do not take into account the duration of grief. They only take into account the duration of the funeral process. Right when that person returns to work they are just starting their read it right and that's when they're coming to the leader right that's when they're coming to the meetings that's when the reports become do that's when their project is do is right when they're starting their breathing process and so that that is a very critical time for leadership. Recognize that. Look just because you had your three to five days. Bereavement leave doesn't mean you're done with this. Right is only just beginning and the the the work environment is seeing people come back very tender state. Perhaps as tender as i am seeing them. Come through my doors right. Where because they may begin to relive some of these experiences because now the funeral is over and they've got the mental capacity and the mental the emotional bandwidth to really kind of start to process and they're left alone with their feelings now because of the funeral is over. Everything has quieted down. Now it's just you your emotions nats when they're coming back to work right so let critical time. So here's the thing. So i use the kind of acronym called dab right. Abd is dabbed has how i always taught it when i was teaching. Psychology classes In colleges and universities. I'd say you know you gotta know dabba you know. The problem is is right. Denial anger bargaining depression and acceptance. The problem is is that we think that that's going to be linear that way that we go into denial that we get angry. But it's not as i mean we bounce. It's not a straight line. It's not linear we literally can bounce all over the

Bulbs You Should Grow With Matt Mattus
"Before I placed my bulb order I called Matt Mattis author of mastering the art of flower gardening to see what he recommended. He's here today to showcase some of his favourite bulbs including the most lily leaf, beetle, resistant lilies, and also some of his favorite sources. So welcome Madam. So glad to talk to you today. Thank you. Margaret. I thrilled to be here. So before we get started Matt Should say we're going to have a book giveaway of your recent book with the transcript you're mastering the art of flower gardening. SO ON WAY TO GARDEN DOT COM people can enter to win the book and to just get started on the subject I kinda like to know if I'm not gonNA plan until October practically November why do I need to order bulbs now? That's a great question mark, and in fact, it's I think experienced gardeners are used to ordering bulbs now. I know when I was young and I'm a a Lifetime Gardener I. Wonder why I would get bald catalogs in. June. And July and older you get more you start to realize that type well, first of all time goes faster right. But also there are correct times to order bulbs and even though some bulbs like lilies the to be planted later. In October or November when they're delivered or shipped they need to be planted or I mean or early because they are. The, good ones sell out. and. Primarily, I'm talking about the specialty bulb growers I mean if you are in the Lily Society or a Lily Society or you exhibit lilies, you want the newest varieties. And there are three or four Louis nurseries in the United States. Canada that grow there on lillies in their own fields and breathe around and these are some of the newest and best crosses and hybrids available. And they'll in people know the good ones sell out early. So you order them early. So it's sort of like locking in your order early and then the third dug in. Late October and shipped in November I sometimes can barely get them in the ground before it freezes. You know, I think understating the Commercial Bob Trade helps that there's two ways to get lilies. You can order them from the Great Dutch Growers Eighth, Eighty percent of the world's Lisa grown in the Netherlands. But they're also grown globally. They're grown. You know that balance of the twenty percent a grown in Japan and France and Poland and Germany. So and in a lot of ground in the southern. Hemisphere New Zealand for the US market so they're grown offseason. So. Those are all great. There's no bad lily bowl but the there are extraordinary ones off it. You get a bigger bulb from a smaller nursery or a newer variety so those will sell out fast. Right and do you have a pet bird? Probably can hear the twenty heirloom Turkeys that just hatched in the kitchen here. Oh and there was no keeping them. So I apologize for the. I thought you had a pet canary or something that's hilarious. Okay. Good will say a lot of them. I. Apologize. Now it's so so the. And there are some things that are kind of perishable. Maybe we'll talk about those with some of the ones you recommend but. You WanNa get him really fresh so you don't want the last thing lying around for months either do you I mean Beth right? Yeah. Yeah. I'd be little Bob's in general or In Bulbs in general I'm including tubers and combs and Risa. GMS. But there are some that survived fine out of the ground for a while and there's some that don't I think we'll probably touch on that later but there's one thing I wanted to add that. This is this crazy twenty twenty year with Cova D- it's affecting the lily bulb industry especially the small growers I just received two e mails today from small growers at said, place your orders now because by September, we're probably going to shut down the site and switch over to spring twenty twenty, one orders. Okay you know because they're they're you know they don't buy from brokers the not buying for the big multiplying growers in the rest of the world out the basically have a field of Casablanca's when those are gone

"I mean. His grandfather wrote citizen Kane. His uncle wrote all about eve, and he himself is one of the smartest minds in the classic Film Business Welcome Ben Mankiewicz. Ben. I am so excited that you're on the show. I mean I want to ask you like we have now gone through all one hundred films on the list from the number one. To number one hundred Ito from all the way from a citizen Kane to swing time and I want to ask you. I know that you have a little bit of family by on this, but a citizen Kane, your pick for the number one film of all time. I mean you know I never entirely know how to answer that question I mean. If you take in, you know I mean I guess we did a sight and sound but. The Vertigo. Had a blanket and that's an easy call for me. I'm a really like Vertigo. Our stand why people get so excited about and. I appreciate that and I don't. And I mean I don't think it's good I, just mean. I mean I'd I'd say it's you know off the top of my head one hundred thirty eight. You know I just like it should be, it's. Not, it's like my six favorite edge got in that question. I put Cain one and I think it's. Brilliant piece of filmmaking I do, but certainly not the movie I enjoy most which might be the movie we're talking about now. This sort of this is this is when studio filmmaking hits Grand Slam with two outs in the bottom of the night to win four. You know it's a this is perfect. I get it. There are moments when it's a little Schmaltzy, but I love manipulative Schmaltz when it doesn't feel manipulated I think we're talking about this balance all the time especially with the AFC list where it's the popular choice and the critical choice, right? I. Think many people that we talked to that. Listen to our show have not seen citizen Kane there. Never saw a so good I finally got to watch US film, but most people I would argue more than ninety percent has seen Casa Blanca, and like that's like this interesting distinction on this whole list. You know like what people love and I think it's the Shawshank redemption of all to people. I know so many people. I think that's number one on the IMDB. All Time Yeah So. I don't know if it's familiarity or do you find that to sometimes like the films that people are that are played the most get them get the most love or Even. Come across that at all. Yeah, yeah, I do, and I mean of course there played the most because people love them. The most and people love them the most because they're playing boss ride and at that, those those things feed each other I mean. It is shocking to look at that I am which obviously is incredibly unscientific Yup. jokers in the top twenty and right I got to stay there forever Paul. That's right, but the but there are movies that You know the mostly. They got good movies. The Godfather and Godfather to or like two and four, but right at that list doesn't. Than enough classic movies on there, but for some reason like twelve angry men, which is brilliant, somehow that cracked the top ten like a right, not Catholic so I I love that list I shaw. Shank is a perfect example because the end of Shawshank is incredibly manipulative, delivering exactly what you want, but it's perfect right right at the end of course in you know an Shawshank is a perfect example for me of this world that we have and to what you were saying, Paul this world that we have opened up to us where you sit down and you WanNa Watch a movie and you have basically you're willing to spend two dollars and ninety nine cents. Anything, Anything at all that you want you know. With very rare exceptions. And you look, and that list gives overwhelming. And you think you know what I'll watch. Yeah Yeah see thought. That's what movies do like. They comfort us, and that is a. that's a comfort move. I appreciate that you're talking about this feedback loop because that seems to come up to so often on this list you know movies like wizard of is that become more popular over time as people just like get to see them again and again and again and I'm curious like you shows such a range of things on TCI films that you're like this would crack the top one hundred. If people just saw it more if people were more aware of this film, yeah, totally I mean I was just looking I was talking to a remember. Yes, we're doing feel good films in July and. You know movies. I mean providing almost all movies that make you care about the feel part of feel-good more than. Park like it's okay, if a movie's tragic, if I feel it than it than it has moved in a significant way so I mean to me, bike paths of glory. I watch that to feel even though I'd be outraged at the end past. So I don't know past glories on the list. It is so i. mean that's Kubrick's best film. War Film ever made just about maybe maybe Algiers. That the shop around the corner is one of the movies we have and I. Guess you know it was considered by the A. F. I. On the list, but. I. Mean You know I think if you WANNA call it a romantic comedy like you know the best romantic comedy, there is so yeah, look at the list, right? It's totally subjective. And the question about the do you feel in? The slot on the show, the idea that comedies on always get there, do right we. I think we are more often embracing classic comedy. You know whether it's Harold Lloyd or the Marx Brothers, but we're very reticent to kind of forward and embrace something, but when Harry met Sally or something like that like. Do you notice that as well that sometimes comedies that are passed a certainly in the nineteen fifties kind. Kind of are harder sell to be deemed as classics. Yeah, I think some of that comes down. No question I think that comes from the Gada me, which has always been really has to nominate a comedy for best picture than if it is, it's a heady comedy like like Annie Hall. You know right out that any all's not funny. It really is, but you know I, mean you know? Better than anyone or as well as as the top tier people, hard comedy is to do well comedy done right ought to be honored, or it ought to be more films on that list. On things that are outdated and need to stay in the past. The agreed had for example. Black face was in swing. Time In. We've been having conversation on the show. Like how do you do you kick things out of the culture. How do you do frame them like what's the best way to handle something like that? Well, you know I think that this discussion obviously a really valuable discussion, and there's too much talk about discussions in the world by the way sometimes. Do something, but Israel. Really, it's been great. Because it is I hope highlighted what we do and I don't mean that in a promotional way, but in a bike I won't be will recognize the value it. Brings! which is you know sort of being the guardians of of you know eighty years of of movie history. We've put things in historical context in Hollywood context with the curation. And then we've corners in connection with the audience, and so this curation and context has never been more valuable than it is now and I hope people appreciate. Hbo Max in Grad Gotcha the same company. But. They did the right thing to gone with the wind, and then they have now put it back with an introduction from one of our hosts Jacqueline a professor of film professor at University of Chicago, and she's got a you know a four minute sort of discussion about putting that in context putting the history in acknowledging how important it was, and that holds true for for every single film like swing time like holiday and that has. Black face, which frequently just comes out of nowhere right because it's just a joke, ha, everybody knows this is a joke we want. Everybody laughed at it so sometimes you don't even see it coming and so the littlest rebel Shirley Temple. She's in black face crazy, but you gotta point that out. We gotta add the context. I think the context is more than just saying. Oh, this is what happened the Times be aware of it. Here's the move you gotta do a little better..

Social Psychiatrists might think regard the following as sinister wartime symptoms. So it was like he could not give into the movie. And then it's interesting. About James Agee is as film gained momentum as it became this hit as it became this this Oscar sudden surge of interest. You know that that became really passionate. He kept writing about it and he kept writing about his conflicting feelings. You read after it won the Oscar is he wrote Casablanca is still reverently spoken as a a fun movie and e a quote.

But, he really looked down on people for liking this movie. Even as he liked himself I thought that was really interesting. Because I see that symptom happened today.

Didn't recognize the script. They complained. It was not good. You know not. This is not going to be a good movie. Others gave complaints as to dated. There's too much dialogue.

All we really need is an American girl. Big tits. An American girl of big tits will do in this role which was like what no? Way that they shot and Lit Ingrid Bergman is absolutely. People. Who have it seen that clip that we just played? It doesn't add anything for me to know that. Sam is wearing a yellow jacket on the piano. Really really jacket, but it kind of called out to me in a weird way go. But. They did something interesting, too, because she was really nervous about our foreheads. Apparently, she had a very big far head I understand. Well and and they did so much to light and treat her in this way and I think a lot of people think this may be the film that she's best photographed in because cinematography in it really like they took again listening to Roger Ebert do his commentary. He said that he did entire commentary with A DP director photography, and they only looked at in at her shots, looked at like how her shots were framed. Because each one is so artistically done whenever the light and cameras on her, and they could just, they just pinpointed that I thought that was really really an interesting way to watch the film. I love that, too, because you also. I mean you are presented this woman who is just unbelievable and wonderful and romantic and adorable and everything and yet. What I appreciate about how she plays. The role of actual performance is just the level of integrity that I think Ingrid Bergman has because when you really strip it down to the essence. This is a fairly rare kind of script. This is a woman who's. Basically slept with another man I would say in Paris while her husband was in a concentration camp, and yes, she thought he was dead in. Yes, she didn't know, but that's usually the kind of thing. I feel like in a in a code film that you die accidentally. Cheated on my wonderful husband, who's like the Great Savior of the war and here he was a concentration camp victim. Who might rescue us from what is to come? And yet she plays, it was such innate goodness. You know that you like you are allowed to find love again. The and I think discredits from inside of her. Well I mean you don't have to be a virgin to the virtuous or to be worthy of love, and and I feel like this movie walks these fine lines in and during the code time just having her in a bathrobe in the scenes in Paris, which you know, which look slightly You Know Post Coil. Our really A really interesting to me like you know they really do. Push the bounds here you know and in the the original script. They even made her less virtuous than she was. She was living with an American businessman and it was rick who left her when he found out and when it comes to Casa Blanca. She's not even married to victor like so she kind of been. They really played with this character made her. You know I I think for the time really that really exciting to do that. True from everything I've read. The Code had real issues with this film. Which is interesting? I mean I feel like this is the film I? Be Like I will show this if you if you had me Babysit your kids. I wouldn't feel am I feel like I bored them. If I would made them watch Casablanca but I wouldn't feel like scandalized them if the. Lanka, and yet, either the student people at the time, they were really freaked out. There's a scene. Rip Could Be implied that Ingrid Bergman sleeps with Humphrey Bogart. You know after they have this this kind of rendezvous back in his office in there like we have to make really sure it doesn't seem like that. There's a lot of really corrupt stuff honestly happening with Captain Renault. I mean Claude rains in this police captain. He plays the guy who. Spends his career in Casablanca trying to play both sides, trying to keep the Nazis happy trying to stay up positive on the surface. Maybe maybe anyway. You think he's like scheming to stay afloat so that he can do whatever he needs to do very deep down under the surface. Maybe he's figuring out. Conscious movie goes on. It's hard to say, but like the one area where his conscience is awry, even if you might be secretly aligned against the Nazis and the vichy is, he's like well at least I'm GonNa. Use My power to make women sleep with me for visas, right? That's whole. He is like sending that woman. She needs a visa me tidy myself up in the Mir so she can come in Oh. This young girl needs a visa. Even though she's married, we'll all set a date with her. And we will see what happens. Ease a real fucking bastard. If we're honest, he is a real play it, you dumb bastard! Well look I believe that he would do that, you know. The whole third act the film. You only that person to say play dumb bastard could pull off the plan. He can outsmart them because I think he is He is a bastard like he can screw everybody I mean. He screws over everybody. Even people who are his friends to a certain extent like he's abandoning people. He's getting rid of things you know. He is the definition of pragmatic or selfish or her. A lot of unforgettable words. And again that just really struck me. How vibrant this must have felt in nineteen forty two. I, mean here. It's the America's first real year at war. You know we've now had a year of being at this war. This is all still getting settled out. I mean it blows my mind I think. Did this movie came out at a time where you didn't know for sure how the war was going to end at all? You didn't even know how bad necessarily the concentration camps work for somebody like Lonzo. You were still that scar gives you a little bit of an idea right like. Allude to it just a little bit. You are still playing at both ways when it comes to things like. Can we get the Italians over here? What can we do with the French? WHO's really our friend? How are we going to play this out? And for this film to take such a definite stance against the vichy government to have at the end Ito Renault's big moments throwing away a bottle of water that says Vishu water. that. At a time, when most studios had only now just gotten used eighty of taking side in the war. This is huge warner brothers is I was always ahead of the game I mean the warner brothers very clearly before everybody else were willing to say that. Nazi Hitler was bad. They are the first studio in Hollywood to pull their films out of production in Germany. They're the first people to say. We don't give a shit. We believe in right and wrong, even if this economy is a business, and so they were really well placed to make a film that I feel like hit a lot of hot buttons in Nineteen, forty, two and assembled a team that was willing to do it. I mean Conrad Vite. Who plays the May, not.

"You must remember not. Just. I just. Can I tell you a weird. Wilson to character who plays Sam? Yes, well is a fun fact that he never saw piano before this movie because that is the fakest piano playing I've ever seen it's. It's comically bad. That is not the fun fact, but that is a fun fact. That is a fun fact. My fact is that Dooley. Wilson is the only person on this set who'd actually been to Casa Blanca. He had been to real cost of bunk and nobody else ever been there, but he had been, he'd been there for kind of a fundraising I mean. He was truly even though he can't play piano worth anything. He was actually a really good jazz musician. mazing singer yeah, he's. Voice is voices amazing, so he went to Casablanca way back in the day to play Jazz, Incas of Lanka for none other than t e Lawrence. The Realty Lawrence not screwing up the time. T E, Lawrence Lawrence of Arabia so Dooley Wilson Play Jazz. INCAS AB- Lanka for t E. Lawrence are big star. The Real, the real one and like Casablanca made Arthur Dooley Wilson himself a really huge star like he suddenly overnight. People were so glad to see him on screen. They thought he did such a great job that he was getting five thousand fan letters a week boom overnight Dooley. Wilson was a huge door. Because of Casablanca and this is a problem with the studio system. This is the system. They had no idea what to do with him, and nobody else was allowed to make movies with him, and then there he was just there making nothing and his career, fizzling a lot like happened to Hattie mcdaniel. Yeah I was GONNA say like Hattie, mcdonagh, you know and it's it's. Upsetting because everyone else in this movie goes on to kind of exploded and have a such a big career Just interesting fact while we're sharing facts, you know the line? Play it again. Sam Never spoken in the film. Right I s Ingrid Bergman says play it. Sam Play at once more for old time. Sake, but play it again. Sam is not align. This movie is very misquoted. Kind of find a few of these examples. I think it might have come from this Jack, Benny, sketch. In many respects I think that this is the equivalent of an SNL sketch. When Casa. Blanca comes out, here is Jack Benny and Rochester. Doing a little Casa. Blanca seen. I'm having trouble with a girl. Down Crowley Saddam. Pour Yourself. A drink will say hank. Ingrid. Ingrid. Go ahead Sam Played Sean. I WANNA. Hear it once more. You must remember the. Kiss! A little bit of the Clinton because they wanted to play the song the songs of money, but throughout the entire sketch. Play against him the. Jack Benny keeps on saying that he didn't say it right there but I wonder if that was maybe the confusion, or that's how it got locked into popular culture. It must be the way that I hear more cowbell every single. Radio that would make sense other. Did you do what the line was was originally written as when they were first writing this scene what? Okay all right so this is supposed to come out of Humphrey Bogart's mouth to Sam as he walks up, he's just was to go play it. YOU DUMB BASTARD! Jesus! Wow Wow. You Bastard. Does that roll off? Oh my Gosh Oh Look I want to see him say that like. Fitzgerald. There that really that really got me. That's a t shirt. Play faster. You even that song was not supposed to be the song like they didn't like it, but they got locked into it. And again we talk about happy accents all the time and that really. Becomes so iconic You can't help, but think of. Again as somebody who's ever seen that movie, that's what I know from this movie. Play it again Sam. which is even a line that song. And then that end monologue this movie. But this movie is full of so many quotable quotable lines I mean. That's the thing. I was really surprised about two. Throughout the whole thing. The the writing of it is just fantastic. That's so true I mean. This script is just written with an inch of its life. It feels like it is written. They figured it out. They figured out how to make it work. I, mean some of the writers gazillion writers worked on this. Two of the writers were these twins. They call the Epstein twins. Arose about the process of writing the script. Is there like listen? Every scoop is concocted, but Casablanca was really concocted. We sat down and we tried to manipulate an audience. And they did that if they had in mind like. Not I am going to type the screenplay that represents my soul, but I'm going to type A screenplay that just works, and I'm GonNa Picture someone in the audience I'm GonNa Picture making her laugh and I'm going to picture making her cry I went externalize everything inside of me and make it work on that person's manipulation. I think it's kind of a bad rap. Because we as audiences are like, we're not like that you can't manipulate us, but it works man, but I mean that's a little bit. We talked to only did American graffiti in how George Lucas use that end to kind of make you leave feeling something that you may not have felt the entire film. Just put in some context about the quote ability of it This film has six quotes on the AFI's list of top movie quotes. That's more than any other movie on the list of a hundred. Yes number five. Kid Number Twenty is Louie I. Think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship number twenty eight play. It Sam play thirty two round up the usual suspects forty three. We'll always have Paris and sixty seven of all the gin joints in all the towns and all the world. She walks into mine I mean that's. It's a and they're all pretty much before you know sixty seven is pretty. You know they don't even get into the back half of the hundred. That's high up quotes. which were the you? Find Yourself saying the most? I mean. Probably round up the usual suspects because I am in law enforcement, and that's something that I do. Know I don't know if I I don't know if I say any of these I, don't. They don't really they don't really default to like. Like casual, you find you say these. Are The number one thing I will always have Paris usually not Paris. It's like we'll always have. The Los Angeles County Carnival well. We have the farmers market on Sundays. You know it's I think especially this summer where there's a lot we don't have, but we will have again. I'm using. We will always have a.

"Name is not synonymous with being a great director in my in my mind in the sense of the Pantheon of directors, and yet he is responsible for this film that is iconic, but he is an example of a director who I think in many respects. Let's the actors and everything take focus that there's not crazy camera moves you talked about the first time we go into the club. That's really one of the few like moving shots and this film. You know every move is delivered. It doesn't feel like it's for show. and. Agree to really appreciate the way that he directed this film, but it's incredibly simple. Comparatively to a lot of the films that we've watched. Jewelry Setting. It would be like a a delicate jewelry setting that lets the Jamat, self shine I. Mean this is the same guy in this year made Yankee doodle Dandy unique hasn't Lunka any dandy in the same year. He I mean. He also made a film. I really love which is mildred pierce. He made the adventures of Robin. Hood which is another film that his beloved, especially my Buddy Brian Caguan if you're listening Hi Brian I mean, but you're right like he has just this list of heavy hitters. People don't think of them as Michael Curtis films. Which I wonder. I wonder if he was offended by. That are yeah, and I wonder like my instinct is be like poor, Michael Curtis, but also like what if that's the way of things? What if that's fine? I think there is something really interesting about this style director and I don't mean to. Disparage him at all, but I think there are certain directors who really. have no ego and recently. The director often think about when I think about this is someone like Michael Showalter who made the big sick? He made this great movie with Sally Field before that he. Isn't trying to show you like what I'm doing over here like he really lets the actors and the script. Come to life in a way that. I kind of find refreshing, you know because I think. So, everyone's trying to make their mark right, so you want to have that one or you WanNa. You WanNa. Show that you are worthy of something. I think it's a sign of a confident assured hand behind the camera that allows the work to be elevated and and other say that. Anybody who doesn't do that isn't a good director, but I'M I. I'm kind of always drawn to it because you don't often think of the directors and you think of these movies, but when you go, but the performances were great. Oh, it looked amazing. Oh the casting! That's all the director you know. The story came like the director has a hand in all of that, but I feel like when you don't feel the director you. You just assume that they were behind the camera going cutting action in that it, they had no other say, and and I think if you look at his body of work, you can see like he knew how to shoot. Multiple styles of things work with amazing actors. Get great performances out of them and you. Humphrey Bogart is a perfect example of this is. A very different role for Humphrey bogart that he was not used to at all, and and this kind of explodes him into a whole nother. Genre as a leading man. He ever think when they. When they pitched the idea of having. Humphrey Bogart Star in this movie. One of the things that Harry Warner said who was the head of the studios. He was like who the hell would ever WANNA kiss. Bogart shows like nobody wants to kiss bogart. Nobody wants to see Bogart in this role. Nobody wants to see Bogart as a romantic leading man, they really only thought of him as a stone, cold, evil killer, because that had been the majority of what he played I mean this is a guy who last year was kissing the woman at the end of he's going to be like. Have Fun into hatch P. C. A. Later, right? I think though that this character S- ponds. A. Type of character that we have grown to love in cinema and draw the cleanest line, not the first time that we see it, but this is our. Indiana Jones Czar Hans Solo. This. Man. Has All the trappings of a traditional tough man, but then has these. This emotional side this way that you can connect to them. I believe that Humphrey Bogart is on the run, and then he'd run this club and that he would pull a gun on someone, and that he would be able to graft and work this town because he. There's a level to him. That is a little bit scary right he can. He belongs in these places and going back to the Han. Solo thing like Han Solo belongs in that Cantina you know Mark Hamill as Skywalker does not and I feel like. You, know this movie at one point even though. It probably isn't true. They announced the movie to star Ronald Reagan. But then Ronald Reagan was called up the service, so he didn't do the film and there's A. There's a thought that he was never even really flea considered, but if you put them in like Ronald Reagan in this film, he would not have that Gravitas like you need someone who looks a little beaten down a little world, worn and I. Think it's a character that we search for to this day. We want that Kinda Grizzle but emotionally centered. Person I think that this is a this archetype was really set in place in by Hover. Boettger I mean. Do you think that or am I crazy for a drawing that comparison now I like that theory a lot. I mean it quick aside, really fast on the Ronald Reagan thing. Yeah does seem like. They just announced that he was going to be in this movie. Basically just to say, we're making this movie and here's a person who will be in this movie or or not, but this movie is coming the squadron it. We have the name Casablanca. This is our film. We're doing it. We're doing. We're doing British funny to imagine a world where what if? Ronald Reagan was in this movie. And what if it was still really good? Would he have been a bigger movie star and if he was a big movie star? Would he have just stayed in Hollywood and not run for Governor of California? Changed if. This movie and been good in it still. You Know Jeb Bush would be our president. That's what had happened. It would be. He would be the first Bush. President. No, but I know there are i. mean they're amazing. What ifs here? Yeah, but to your point because I. Think your point is really interesting. I mean I wonder a lot about this character like the kind of guy who is really good guy, but one admit it here for example when Renault is trying to accuse him of being a good person deep down being a sentimentalist gave you the impression that I might be interested in helping Laszlo escape because my dear Ricky I suspect that under that cynical show your heart sentimentalist. Laugh if you will, but I happen to be familiar with their record, it'd be point just two items. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty five UN guns to Ethiopia. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty six. You fought in Spain analyst side. I got well paid for it. On both occasions, the winning side would have paid you much better. Maybe. Well it seems that you're determined to keep Laszlo here. I have my orders. I see guest apple. spank idea, ricky, you over estimate the influence of the guest. I don't, interfere with them. They don't interfere with me. In Blanca, master of my fate I am. Sir. Hey was saying excuse me. I have to admit like. What. If this kind of person doesn't Really Exist? Have you met a person like this before? Like what if we all have as a culture have convinced ourselves that every tough guy is secretly really really sweet if we give him.

"Top One hundred greatest films of all time list the two thousand seven edition to see if they are really as good as people say, do they hold up? And how have they influenced the films that we watch now today we'll be talking about Casa Blanca, but before we get into that, we're GonNa talk a little bit about last week's film, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid now. This is officially our last episode of. OF SEASON ONE WE'RE GONNA be branching off into season two, but before we do that we wanna make sure that you tune in next week for a big recap episode. We're going to be breaking down the list what we thought about it. It's going to be a big celebration of the AFI list as we prepare to move on, but we'll tell you more about that at the end of the episode. Episode Amy. What do people think about Butch Cassidy and Sundance? Kid I mean does belong on. The list should be kicked off well. People like butch, cassidy and the Sundance can I got a lovely for my aunt and uncle, who really love Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, but a lot of people said you know sure, but I think it needs to stack up against the sting, said like the preferred movie from. From this team by by a large margin of people, and so I think that is a one more entry point into everything. We're going to be doing in season two, which is going big with it and also granular with what are the stuff that we have on this list that we like what can, we may be replaced with something slightly better a conversation. We're having all the way back since swing time. Well I think a lot of people also really connected with our discussion about how Butch Cassidy and Sundance kid represented the end of an era right this idea that new things are coming technology whatever it might be like the death of the old of the old western, even and so I felt like we got a lot of props for having that reading as many people also had that same reading for me I think the choice is really the sting or slapshot. What would you put on the list? I mean Hanson Brothers or Jackie gleason your choice. Well you that my heart is with Ben. O'Connor, who wrote in listen if we are going to do a William Goldman, film there so many Westerns, if we want to film that really plays around with tropes, and that's something to say about the clash of romantic and modern sensibilities. That movie is the Princess Bride. I just saw that movie. It was so good had all those different actors playing all those different roles? Yes, that's what a movie usually is. Right. By the way KIP Mooney agreed with me that stop shot should be on the if my list. I don't really know if I believe that, but I do like sap shot. This is actually really interesting. We've had some very famous twitter. Followers and one of the famous ones is the five twenty bridge. It's a bridge who has a personality and that bridge said that they really enjoyed butch cassidy and the Sundance Kid couldn't listen through the bridge over the river, Kwai just kind of hit too close to home. Because obviously, there's a little bit a bridge destruction there there is I wonder how the five twenty bridge feels about A little movie called the General Another Bridge blowing up movie. Are we just so violent to bridges? It does Jeff Bridges know about this. Should we do the bitches advantage county for the second season five twenty four. Don't spoil what our second season's going to be. Only Bridge Movies bridge over tear with a man. ooh! And then let's finally get into our last coming from Marina Carlson She. Writes I really loved the cinematography and I never thought I'd say this. But the editing I saw a lot of very modern cuts in this film and I was surprised to see a movie from nineteen sixty nine We saw the fun biking montage. For example, the modern song which feels like a template that's been us over and over again. Even something like twenty one jump street the one thing I need to talk about for at least three hours is the fact that are three leads are a straight up up. I've got some major homoerotic vibes coming from this movie and I got the feeling that This was a one thousand percent three couple. What do you think amy was it a couple? I don't know about that, but I think the movie does establish that. Maybe there's nothing wrong. If one person can't satisfy all of your needs, what if you need one person? The laugh with and one person to make you undress incredibly nervous. Absolutely. Well you know what I I do think there was something really interesting about that relationship and looking at it as a thrall. It kind of works. I feel that there is you know they? Both men loved her and she traveled with them and. You know I don't know maybe if they made it now, there would have been a throw in here. You may be couldn't broach that nine hundred sixty nine. Or maybe what really matters is that. There's just a lot of love in the world, and if you're only gonNA live a short life before you get machine gun to death, a south of the border, you may as well love as many people as possible in whatever way that is. Well Amy. Talking about you know the the shortness of life for the fleeting this of of love. It's about time for a start talking about Casa Blanca. And we gave you an interesting task last week we said do Casablanca lines in a different voice than eh traditional Humphrey bogart voice know that that's probably the Go-to, but let's listen to this odd mash that we made you do. Round up the. Usual suspects. Again Sam. Then you! Die. Yeah I mean now, but they were always have Paris. But I've got a job to do to. Where I'm going, you can't follow. How? Shocked shocked to find that gambling is going on in here. I'm no good at Novo. Take much to see the problems of some people tons amount. Teams in this crazy well. Maybe, not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon, and for the rest of your life of all joints in all the towns and all the world. She walks into mine. Agree and this year. Apparently you're the only one in. Less scruples in me. Can't make kids me for the last time. No I they basis that beginning of a beautiful friendship. Well? We'll always have Paris dog gone it. We didn't have lost until you came to Casablanca. Got Back last night. Not Now now here. Here's looking at you, kid. I think there was a walk in there I'm not sure if that was Canadian or walk. I think what really a warms my heart and makes me feel like there is endless amounts of love. Is this podcast and all of our listeners and our absolute love for Jimmy Stewart the king. The for all the reasons so named may He rain. I agree one hundred percent Amy Before we get into today's final film. Just remind you can pick up our poster at pod. Swag designed the amazing Scott Campbell. It looks beautiful, and now hopefully you've checked off the boxes on that poster It's been a wild.
"casablanca" Discussed on Today in True Crime
"Attorney. General Janet Reno and Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin were about to make an announcement. The pressroom bustled with reporters. Word was out that today's news was something Major. None of the papers wanted to miss this. An abrupt silence fell as Secretary. Rubin cleared his throat and began to read his statement. Today we have hurt the drug cartels where it hurts. The most in their pocket books he continued with the details. The United States would be throwing money laundering charges at twenty six Mexican Bank officials and three of Mexico's largest banks cone. Fia Bank Omar and Bunka. Serafin started whispering but Rubin wasn't done Mexican bankers weren't the only ones the US had rounded up. They also hit some of the biggest cartels directly arresting fourteen members of the Colombian Cali cartel and two members of the Mexican Juarez cartel the help of local state and federal law enforcement agencies. Us Customs had made one hundred twelve arrests across six different countries on top of all that they had seized thirty five million dollars to tons of cocaine and four tons of marijuana during their raids. Even now the and seizures were ongoing. There were nine other banks suspected of working with the cartels some with branches in the United States U s customs believed that ultimately day would be able to seize up to one hundred. Ten million dollars in launder drug money. Attorney General Janet Reno stepped forward and declared we set out to disrupt the money laundering networks. That fuel the international drug trafficking trade and we succeeded Operation Casablanca built a roadmap that tracked the structure of the international drug cartels from the kingpins to the courriers and the bankers in between watching the announcement unfold on television with special agent. Bill gately and all he could do was laugh. Gately had been head of the operation whose results Reno and Rubin were announcing he was the man who knew all the players and all the money coming in and out of the Mexican banks and sure gately was proud of all. The work had accomplished over the last three years but he wasn't nearly as convinced of its success as the. Us government seemed to be because gately knew that it could have gone further further operation. Casablanca started out as a way to get back at the bankers who were in league with the cartels but as the investigation proceeded gately was shocked to discover how high up the chain the laundering scheme went. It wasn't just bankers looking to cash in. But the Mexican government to gately at heard that Mexico's Secretary of Defense General. Enrico Cervantes wanted to launder roughly one billion dollars of drug money with a Mexican Bank. He was delighted at the. Find Nailing. Someone so high up would be a major to drug smuggling operations but when Gailey took this information to his superiors the only response he got was that Operation Casa Blanca was going to be shut down within two weeks arrests would be made not including Cervantes and that was going to be the end of it. Any investigation into the secretary of Defense would stop before it even got started Operation Casablanca. Gately was convinced. Shouldn't have ended. They could have made a much bigger dent in the Kelly in Juarez cartels and possibly landed a major player in the whole criminal conspiracy instead day called it quits. It wouldn't be long before gately filled out his retirement papers if he wasn't able to do his job the right way if he had to sit on the sidelines as justice fell prey to politics. It was time to get out coming up the background and fallout of Operation Casablanca parkhouse listeners. I have some big news.

Listen free and only on spotify now back to the story on May Ninth Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin and Attorney General. Janet Reno announced the end of Operation Casa Blanca a years long investigation into drug cartels and the Mexican banks. They used to launder their money. The operation led to one of the biggest money laundering busts in US history and it all started with the US. Customs Special Agent stationed in Los Angeles California as a US customs agent. It was William Bill. Gately's job to investigate drug trafficking and money laundering in California money. Laundering plays a major role for the drug cartels especially the largest ones tasked with moving enormous quantities of money their various ways they can handle this laundering including setting up front businesses. But they don't always do it alone. Banks are sometimes key in helping cartels clean their dirty money because despite the legal risk the cartels know how to make it lucrative for financial institutions as gately himself put it money laundering to the drug trafficker. Means I will give twenty two cents on the dollar. If you give me my seventy eight cents clean. With the millions that drug traffickers bring in each month the potential payout for the banks adds up. Gately realized that if he was able to build a large scale case against these banks he would be able to strike a major blow to the drug cartels. His superiors agreed in November nineteen ninety-five gately got the green light to investigate the Mexican banks. Operation Casa Blanca was a go gately and his team posed as precious gem dealers that were open to laundering money for criminals. That is they'd sell criminals gems or offer investment opportunities turning drug money into a legitimate asset. The cover worked. They quickly started making cartel contacts. That took them up on their offer and connected them to the right banks. The banks came into it as middlemen. Their job was to move the drug money coming from the GEM business into and out of different accounts hiding its dirty origins through complex confusing transactions. But little did they know gately their partner was keeping careful track of every new account for the US government within six months gately and his crew of undercover agents had nine banks working for them within three years. They'd created a complicated laundering network. That crisscrossed the globe funneling cartel money into a multitude of different businesses. The operation was running perfectly then at the beginning of nineteen ninety. Eight gately was hit with a bombshell request from one of his Mexican bankers. They wanted him to launder. One billion dollars. Word spread that the person behind the request was the Mexican Secretary of Defense and Riquet Sirvan Tez but Cervantes was supposed to be one of the leading fighters against the cartels. The request was I opening. It proved how corruption within the Mexican government and military allowed the cartels. To Thrive gately was ready to act on the Intel and launched the most important part of his operation yet bringing down the cartels government contacts. The implications were huge. The arrests could potentially prove fatal to cartel operations. Unfortunately gately wasn't given the opportunity to start collecting evidence of Cervantes crimes. Despite backing from Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin his operation was arraigned in more powerful people within the US government didn't want to cause a stir with Mexico. At least that's what gately thought the. Us government would later claim. The investigation ended prematurely. Thanks to leaks. Threatening the operation regardless in May nineteen ninety eight gately was given two weeks to shutdown CASA BLANCA throughout may more than one hundred sixty eight people affiliated with the Cartels Money Laundering Process. Mexican bankers drug traffickers. And more were arrested around the world three of Mexico's leading banks cone FIA Bankamerica and Bunka Serafin were indicted for money laundering. Even without an attempted arrest of government figures like savant. The case was big enough to have major political consequences. The Mexican government was outraged. The United States had conducted a secret operation on their soil essentially questioning their sovereignty. A few months later both countries signed the Brownsville agreement which requires each country to notify the other of clandestine operations happening on their soil and impactful outcome for Operation Casa Blanca. But not the intended one which unfortunately wasn't achieved Operation Casablanca failed to cripple the cartels leaving the top of the laundering. Hierarchy touched meant. The system was able to recover just as gately had feared..
Some Canadians have made it home. Others havent.
"Are you there. I'm always here Jordan. Where where am I? GonNa go fair enough. Well it's the first day of the work week was your weekend any different from your week. aside from not making this podcast not really. I mean. I've just been kind of cooking and taking long walks no complaints. Can you even tell days apart right now? No I usually ask about three times a day. What Day is it today? I keep thinking that I'm supposed to take my garbage out Because every day feels like garbage day now for whatever that's worth but here's a question. Have you felt lucky over the past little while I don't know about lucky of definitely felt very fortunate? I've been trying to look on the bright side of things I mean. I'm very fortunate to have been able to work from home as soon as needed and my partner and I keep each other company. Why have you felt? I really have for whatever it's worth you know when we do research for the show. I tend to dig into the worst stuff. The reports out of Italy Reports from frontline hospital workers in Canada and in the United States and it really drives home the point and this weekend we were reading and listening to stories of Canadians who found themselves abroad when Justin Trudeau said. Hey this is serious. It's time to get home yet. That's that's easier said than done. Yeah and I traveled in February and I think about it. Now you know if it had been a couple of weeks later at the time everybody said it was fine to go a couple of weeks later. I would have been in that same situation. Yeah and some people right now are stuck where they are and today We're GONNA talk to somebody who just made it home under the gun barely and We'll hear from somebody at the end of today's episode. Who is not as lucky? And she'll quickly tell you where she has her situation's very fluid So we wanted to get her information there at the very least but quickly for people who still do know what day it is. Can you tell us where we are? Clara's the quote Unquote workweek. What ever that means now begins while the latest from Canada's Health Minister Patty. Hi Do. Is that if you're back from a trip and you've been told to self isolate and you don't do that. You could face a big penalty. It is critically important especially for those returning home now to ensure that they follow this public health advice that we're giving them and the advice will be not just advice if if we if we need to take stronger measures we will and that actually happened in Quebec. A woman who tested positive for the Koran virus was arrested for violating quarantine order because she was out walking her dog. Prime Minister Trudeau says between Monday and Wednesday. There will be more than thirty flights bringing Canadians. Who are abroad back home. And we are now seeing the first case of Cova. Nineteen in the north. It's in the Northwest Territories. And they've now shut down their border to all nonessential travel uh some. Mp's are being called back. On Tuesday to adopt the emergency measures that were announced last week. Those include the twenty seven billion dollar fund for direct support and the fifty five billion dollars to help business liquidity through tax deferrals as of Sunday evening. One thousand four hundred and thirty six cases of Covert Nineteen in Canada with twenty one deaths. When you find yourself in a situation like our guest today did of course you second. Guess yourself a little bit. Why did I go? How did I end up? Here what could I have done differently? It's natural but I think you have to remember as fast as this thing. Seems like it's moving now a few weeks ago unless you are really paying attention. It didn't seem that it was going to get bad. And besides buck once. You're stuck you're stuck. There's no point in questioning how you got here. You just want to get home and to do that. You might need the help of the government and as we know government. Can't help everyone right now today. I can announce we're working with Canadian airlines to make commercial flights available for as many Canadians who are stranded as possible. Now we won't be able to reach everyone over going to do our best to help those. We can't nothing is really guaranteed anymore and so you take your chances like today's guest Jordan Heath Rawlings and this is the big story. Julia Morales is a student at McGill University in Montreal and today she is in Montreal and safe so first of all. Juliane glad to hear that. Thank you go out to you back your home now. Yes where were you last week? So last week I was in Morocco originally I was will kind of just traveling everywhere and ended up in ten years from where I was supposed to take a flight back to Montreal. Tell me how you got there. Why were you there? When did you go that kind of stuff? So Group of four other students and a professor and I left from McGill University on February twenty seventh to leave for Morocco on a geological field trip. We were going to go steady the geology of the area and sort of understand what processes lead to the current geology of the region and supposedly for two weeks however we were not able to board our flight out of Morocco because of travel bans that were then instilled by the government. What were you thinking? And I don't mean this in a bad way. But what what were you thinking as the flight approached? And you knew you were going. Were you worried Had you heard anything from the government or anywhere else advising you know actually going into the trip I think. Any of the stresses kind of just related to the usual stress of traveling. Do we have everything we need. Is Everyone have a tenth? Is Everyone have hiking boots Nothing related to the extra corona virus because as we had seen on government of Canada website about point. Morocco is very safe. There were no cases or I believe zero. The two case cases of corona in the country and Italy had yet to undergo this boon which we now have seen the past two weeks So we felt quite confident in going to the country and being safe in coming back. Tell me about when that situation changed in Morocco. What were you hearing? What was happening there so every night as we would have dinner we would actually go on the corona world meter website and see what the the statistics were saying about the spread of the virus and even until the last day we were supposed to be their only about. I believe eighteen. Total cases in the country So we weren't too concerned about our state in the country more was going on in the neighboring countries such as Spain particularly Because obviously we're seeing that it was exploding all over Europe and immediately saw that the political response in all these countries with started closing down borders. We started to get concerned about the fact that we may not be able to return but up until then we have not heard anything from our airline or the government in Rocco or the Canadian government. So we weren't we again. We're not too concerned about the idea that we were going to be able to come back home. Tell me about making the decision to try to get home. What happened and what you do that. Yes so we arrived at Tangiers airport as we were supposed to and as we walked into the airport we received the news that essentially Morocco was closing. Its borders to about twenty countries. It was GONNA stop international flights in and out of twenty countries and among those were Canada. Which is quite surprising because the USA was not on the on that list in the US has many more cases of corona virus than we do and at that point we immediately started looking for other flights out of the country and we managed to book another one through Qatar And three days later we were supposed to cash played. We found out that Qatar was also closing. Its borders and would not allow us to fly through there so this all began a whole spiral of trying to find any flights out. What did you do but did we do what we kept? Trying to find. More flights we booked another flight out of Casablanca on Foulon really quickly counseled expedia actually called us about like a few hours. After having both in told us that the play it would not be going out. We booked another flight with Air Canada which then got cancelled. We booked another flight through Royal Moroccan. That also cancelled we for pretty much just desperate to find anything that would get us out of the country so our original flight was supposed to go through. Casablanca before then heading to Montreal. So you decided to take a flight to Casablanca since it's like a major flight hub in the country and we figured that our chances of getting a flight out would increase if we were in that city and so we just kept trying once we arrived in Casablanca airport. We tried to make sure if our flight would actually be going out. And the people at the counter told us that they couldn't even find our

That's become come vital to life thanks to its widespread use in the food and agricultural industries. Morocco leads the world in phosphate mining. Giving it a strategic advantage as food production increases alongside global population growth but the mineral isn't without controversy as the BBC's Matthew Davis reports standing in this landscape makes makes one field raw the small. This is therefore phosphate mine. Not only the largest mine in the world but one of the largest opencast opencast mines and this mine has forty three percent of global reserves of phosphate but the economics of most resources are never straightforward right forward and phosphates all no different. The vast majority of the world's phosphate reserves have a geopolitical issue which is being unresolved for nearly three decades accolades Western Sahara.

There are any or blowing in Western Sahara but both Morocco and the sad are are now members of the African Union. And there's some hope. The situation relation can be sorted out through that grouping but for the moment it looks as if a lot of the phosphates used to make the fertilizer used to grow the crops.

Chapman University removes posters of 'The Birth of a Nation'
"In the history of cinema. The birth of a nation is considered a landmark of technical achievement and d w Griffith's nineteen fifteen movie with its heroic depiction of the Ku Klux Klan is also an enduring symbol of racism of vintage poster and an advertising flyer from the birth of a nation have been on display inside the dodge film school at Chapman university in Orange County. But now following student protests and a faculty vote Chapman has removed the birth of a nation artifacts. Joe replicable is KPCC's Orange County reporter, and she was on the Chapman campus today. She joins us on the line now. So Joe, let's talk first about the posters. What do they look like? And where were they located shares of the main one is a pretty big poster about three feet high advertising. The film to be shown at the Ford theater in Baltimore. It's a really plane post or just the name of the film nothing else. And the next to it is a framed newspaper advertisement about the. Film. Also from that time, and I should say I've only seen photos of both because they were taking down almost immediately following the faculty vote yesterday afternoon. So now, there's just a blank space on the wall. And the spot is kind of in the back up back. Hallway leads to a production studio, it seemed like not a very prominent part of the building. But students told me that they walked by there all the time and that perspective students walked by there on tours of the building because you talk a little bit about the effort to get the posters taken down where did it begin? And what were the students concerns? It's something that some students have been asking for for a long time. I talked to one student J Stayton. He's a junior. He's one of just a handful of black students studying film production at Chapman. And he told me he I e mailed faculty in December twenty seventeen to express his discomfort with the posters. This a reminder that this thing brought back the KKK is or monitor that the white people in the us black phase is just for me. It just reminds me of all those. Races atmosphere that I'm trying to anyway, ignore or pivot. My mindset of so I can pursue my education and not feel insecure. And he said he had a conversation with some faculty members at the time about it. But ultimately nothing was done. And then, you know, the calls have been getting louder from more students in recent years upset about the posters, and then finally a protest was held last week with at least one hundred and fifty students according to the panther. That's the student newspaper and school leaders decided to hold a faculty vote on the matter. And yesterday, the faculty voted to take the posters down Stayton the student that we heard from said he's thrilled that they were finally taken down and really just happy that the student community rallied around the cause. And ultimately that faculty supported them. You said that this protest dates back to 2017, what has the response been from the university, and how has their response evolved. Well, the president wrote an op Ed recently and said he understood the concern. Turns with the film itself. But he talked about the film's placed in history, and some of the techniques that were very of on guard at the time that were used and felt like it was something that needed to be part of visual history. And he basically said that he he wasn't going to take them down. And then the president decided that if the faculty voted to take them down. He would follow the faculties recommendations, and they had a couple of options is that right, right? So the options were to take it down or to keep it up, but add a plaque putting it into context and explaining why it was on the wall why they had decided to keep it up. There are talk with a Chapman faculty member who joined the protest has name is Ron McCain's he's a professor and a TV writer, and this is why he told us he wanted to join the students realize what the case were hurting the students, you know, and all you know, one color either. Right and. One of two or three laps off of the members and dodge college. And so I know that I'm one of fairy few. So my voice is extremely important spry, especially if I I know navigate academia, so what is the demographic makeup of Chapman. It's predominantly white at the most recent freshman class is just over fifty percent. White black students make up just one point six percent of that class, and it's a small school. So that's just thirty people. You talked to some other students today what were their reactions to the decisions to remove the artwork? Winston student told me he understood why it was up in the first place because it was such a monumental work in film history. But he said he's still glad it was taken down. It was a good decision. Another woman told me that it was about time. She had seen potential students of color and their families lingering in front of the poster during tours and could tell that it was something that made them very uncomfortable and possibly even discouraged some of them from choosing chap. Men oranges predominantly white dodges, very white. And so, you know, we're trying to diversify and it's gonna be hard to do that. If people come in. That's the first thing they see because it's a little discouraging. And that was Hannah Freeman she's a senior and television writing and production. Finally, here's what professor McCann's told us about what it means to him that the birth of a nation artifacts have been removed. It says that speaking that is change batteries. And I think what this shows is that the administration to simply listen to what the students haven't you say in recognize that there was an issue. And there was a d for change. Right. And the fact that changed did happen shows that there's there's ample opportunity hopefully future. And so I feel hopeful you know, that this is this is one step towards lease if university at that, you know, students pillar will be probably attend, but the but also demonstrated love for their school. I know the art were just came down. But it has. There been any talk of what if anything might replace them on the walls. A couple of women told me the rumor is that a poster of Casablanca is going to replace it. But as far as I know that's just a rumor, I'm gonna make another suggestion. I think they should put up a poster for spike Lee's, black

Openings to start in college basketball recruitment trial
"In the biosphere of college. Basketball, buying players for universities. The amounts are hardly eye-popping tens, and in some cases, one hundred thousand dollars. The tactics are pretty crude and familiar, but there are a lot of names and figures and text messages at its core. Dan, this is about universities as I said, buying the service of basketball players, but that's now the government is framing the case, is it? No, they are framing the universities as victims here in that by paying players family, you render that player ineligible and university would never give a scholarship to an ineligible player and by playing that ineligible player, unbeknownst the school, they would potentially. Incur the wrath of the NCAA which could punish them financially and other sanctions and vacated wins. And all of that, obviously, the other side says, are you kidding me? We're giving we're helping school, get a five star basketball player so they can win. We are helping not harming these universities and we're really working at either the spoken or implied consent of the. Of the basketball coaches who to them represent the university. So that's really the heart of the case right there. And my your book focuses on one of those coaches, Rick Pitino, and some of the players who entered his orbit and are part of this trial. One is a young guy named tugs Bowen, Brian Bowen, junior, I don't wanna get blinded by the details of his case, but the story is pretty Representative not only of the prosecution, the courting of high school basketball stars, isn't it? Yes. Tugs is a was a good player. Not a great player. Sweet kid. His father was his mentor. Father was a figure in what you beautifully put it. The biosphere of of basketball and his father took a lot of money or took money. A lot of times on behalf of his kids play in a you basketball or to switch high schools as father just kept taking money, and but the money he took for him to go to Louisville was one quarter of one percent of Rick Pitino's annual Sal. Theory. So the money that actually came to the bone, family was nineteen thousand five hundred dollars. It's nothing and, but it really sort of encapsulates the inequalities here because it it became criminalized and Bowen lost his college career and losing his college career. This is a guy that went to play and he's playing Australia. He's playing in Australia, and you know he wants to be in the NBA like all these kids do seven thousand miles from the closest NBA franchise. He'll get scouted, but let's face it. That's a harder road to be one of the thousand or so oversea overseas players trying to get noticed by the NBA that is to go to Louisville and be on national TV all the time, right. That's also reflective sort of the Casablanca nature of this case. Everybody is shocked. Oh my God. You know, the coaches names are Bill self of Kansas has popped up in texts and emails among some of these parties. Talk of Adidas, black ops team come on. There's this cash. Cash on the cars down.
"casablanca" Discussed on Never Seen It
"But at the same time you wanted that you wanted toon town to be real, and I'm not like an animation guy as an adult that much like, yeah, but at one for some reason, like when I look back and think of movies I watched when I was young. That stands out? Yeah. Do you think is too expensive to make? I don't know. I actually. Why they would probably weren't a lot of these. Like it seems like a risky thing because you probably have to invest a lot in doing this, especially in nineteen ninety two or ninety three or so. I, I don't know. I thought it might be eighties, honestly. I'm not sure it was. It was early nineties and there was like, it wasn't really CGI much at that point yet. The must've been your cells or tennis balls are holding in the all that shit. Yeah, it's really cool. This dump. Everything is like age. It was when I re like every movie came out when I was five Grank I'm like, oh, man. Casablanca was say like ninety three ninety. Four I think is when I first entered my brain. There was nothing before me. Right, right, right. It'll be nothing after me. Oh, man. Well, it's embarrassing to admit, all right. We got a couple of games. I don't wanna play here and want to get in because this one that's new is is, is so fun. I, we're gonna play before and after and soy described it a little bit before the podcast, but all describing case you're listening. What I will do is I will tell them a plot to a hypothetical movie that is a mash up of two movie plots, sort of a mash up sort of just the plot, each movie in a row. Right? So it's these two movie plots, and then you'll tell me what the pushed together title of those two movies and believe. Right. So you we talk about like the wolf of Wall Street. Is that option of top or if it's a robot selling penny stocks, you get this like here it is God. So here's, here's an. They start off and they get a little harder. We have four of them.

AS g episode eighty five, the hidden value of Medicare supplements during a EP written by Roxanne Anderson while it's true. The annual enrollment period is the prime time to sell Medicare Advantage plans. Medicare supplements provide you and your clients, a very important alternative. This fall. You should already be planning appointments to check in with your current clients to see if their plan is working for them. A lot can change in a year. So financial situations and health status have a big effect on plan selections. How can having strong Medicare supplements in your portfolio help. You make the most of ADP. Let's break it down by defining the value of Medicare supplements. It's beneficial for you to have Medicare supplements in your portfolio for two reasons. It's a good fit for certain clients, and it's an opportunity to diversify your book of business. Medicare Advantage plans aren't the best fit for all Medicare eligible. 's they have set service areas and plan may not be offered where your client lives. Additionally, the private health insurers who offer Medicare Advantage products, often contract with certain providers to be in their network. Your client may have doctor. He's been going to for years that isn't in the network of the most competitive Medicare Advantage plans available in his county in rolling in original Medicare and purchasing a Medicare supplement to fill in the gaps may make more sense for some clients based on where they live their hobbies, desire. In their financial situation, original Medicare and all Medicare supplement plans accept Medicare. Select plans enable beneficiaries to see any Medicare provider in the country. So if your client lives in a remote area loves to travel or heads down south for the winter, this combo is an attractive option. Additionally, some people find that their prescriptions would cost them more out of pocket in a Medicare Advantage plan. See if your clients medications, cost less with a standalone prescription drug plan and a Medicare supplement. Your clients should never feel like they have to resort to skipping shots or rationing pills. Furthermore, Medicare supplements allow you to expand your client base end increase commissions beyond the Medicare Advantage market. When you sell Medicare supplements, you open your business to people that prefer original Medicare plus selling. Medicare supplements can earn you extra cash through carrier incentive programs or contests like ritter's twenty eighteen one hundred k. cash giveaway and our ten k. cash giveaway. We will have a linked to those giveaways in our show notes if you're interested in learning how you can qualify. Now, you know why selling Medicare supplements during AEP is still valuable, but which should you put in your portfolio? You want to showcase a variety of robust products that can meet your client's unique needs. As an agent you can expect to work with clients who are healthy and clients who are not. Therefore it's important you contract with Medicare supplements that have different underwriting requirements. If a client doesn't have a guaranteed issue into a plan, they will likely be required to pass underwriting, be aware that some carriers may only go back two years when looking at an applicant's medical history and others may go back. Further. In addition, some carriers offer sub-standard rates for clients who normally wouldn't pass underwriting as you're considering carriers. Check that the ones you're interested in have a high financial strength rating to ensure that their rates will remain steady and the company is financially sound insurers with a plus plus AM. Best ratings are deemed very financially stable. It's also good to have Medicare supplements from carriers that offer household discounts a strong plan g. and plan and competitive rates for certain age groups. Lastly, before you finish polishing your portfolio, consider offering a strong prescription drug plan. If your clients are in rolled or desire to enroll in original Medicare, though need to enroll in a standalone PDP to afford their medications and avoid paying the penalty for not having prescription drug coverage, ready to make adjustments to your portfolio. Oh, drop us a line and we can go over which products are most competitive in your local market.
Morocco: More Than Markets
"Welcome to the war nomads podcast delivered by wore Norma's the trouble lifestyle and insurance brand is not your usual trouble podcast. It's everything for the adventurous independent traveler Kifah cheating in my name is Kim and alongside me's feel. And in this episode we traveling to Morocco favor you exotic indeed, north African country, bordering the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. Do you know is the fifth largest Arab country by population? There's over thirty three and a half million people in the country. Of course, it's nine, four predictably sand dunes, but also beaches, and markets and mountains. And it also feel forms the backdrop to many foreign films that have been entirely or at least partially shot in Morocco, which brings us to you quiz question name, three Hollywood movies that have been filmed in Morocco. And if you say Casablanca, you'll wrong that was filmed in Burbank was entirely. Yeah. We'll have the answer the end of the episode, but we don't have any Hollywood's styling, they sit beside fill the styles in their own pudding yourself. Only runs a business code red season.

Now he runs the travel blow code indie, traveler and sharing budget travel gods alongside tips on packing and gear. And Morocco is one of the destinations that feature on the spot and Merrick has broken down of his the into three key areas. Yeah, I think what I did was probably so I spent spent a month in Morocco, and it struck me that there are some sort of tin routes that people usually might want to consider. I think there's sort of the standard trip seems to be Marrakesh the city of Marrakesh and the Sahara. Those usually go together in a one week experience where in the old city for a while, you know, exploring the markets, maybe staying in Riyadh. One of those traditional sort of. Almost palatial a little hotels with the courtyard. You go through the Sahara that's like one week, sort of classic Meralco experience. I would say, and there are two others have clusters of. Popular destinations went into north closer to Spain. You can even get there from Spain with the ferry and one further to south, which you can reach quite easily. If you fly to idea, for instance, which is kind of a resort, seaside resort place. Not using my kind of thing I like to explore and discover in the country, but actually it's really well connected. So from there you can do trip around to south very easily. Not many places where you can put sand dunes, betas mountains and desert into the kind of top five it has going for it. It's pretty unique. Yeah, it is. I think Morocco is great. Actually, it's it is a very unique this nation, and it is so close to Europe as well. I mean, I'm from Europe, so it's easy for me to get there. But auto listeners, we might be from Australia, the United States. It's a really great add on to if you're visiting Europe anyway. Because it's just so different you, you go there and just culturally. It's completely different and just visually as well on these desert towns and and these markets and everything is is a whole different little world. It's, it's I like to have these sort of immersive experiences when I travel, and that's really definitely possible in Morocco, whether he in the Sahara where it's just sand stretching out as far as you can see or you're, you're going through a little towns market place, and there's just so many smells and spices and different things going on there so much tippety. So that's just that's just I think one of the most appealing things about Morocco. It just feels like a very, very unique in different place.

ideal hit that twenty percent of the suv his new wave that why do we listen to that guy because he's the guy that hates us as much as we do he sees this is already just the way we are with a little disappointed with this was never the almost you'll has got it but not quite right but i i you know i probably saw george karlin i don't know a dozen times my life and i would always love it when there was a oh well he's going to do baseball and football great disease and you go this is great listen to this i sure i i listen i like hearing beats like he because this museum it is a form of music digitally form of music when you know like i hear who i can was due over and over again if it comes up in 'cause i got the shuffle gone on ma if schimmel comes up and mike because like the ear was such a master of this very specific type of timing kind of like morose jewish he you know who it's it's the disease descended joan roma jackie veronica yep that good good poll well he told me although yeah and you know who else was heavily influenced by jackie vernon let me guess who stephen wright sure that makes a lot of ads yeah i love jackie vern yeah jackie o'brien was amazing scr i saw he was the guy i saw my parents took museum when i was like eleven oh my god where that's what change to me because i saw him on tv do the slide show and then he came to albuquerque and i saw it in the paper at out in albuquerque was a lounge in the hilton hotel phantom my parents took me that's fist of it and that was what i was like that's when i knew it whenever you but what if he opened bush and soon turkomans should they would have been fine but what we were close enough just to see like you know he's a hold and he's like you saw all of it is in this and that it was not afraid i was like this is still good i have this conversation with somebody is really really interesting is talking about how much i love rickles yeah and i was talking to a a younger com we'll they're all younger and owes quoting some rousseau stuff and this goes help us us laura his own because he so unworkable because it has nothing to do with that yes all music i love the ud in the rhythm of the music and i remember seeing him sometimes he said things that didn't even make sense but because no i will give you a beautiful example i was with your friend and mine rob cohen at the desert in and they had just had a giant renovation of the desert in and it was sweltering in the show room when he goes out a forty milliondollar renovation they get a great airconditioning system two facts on the roof of the peace looseleaf paper glenn doesn't mean a gut dim thing he could have said tortoises zeroed onesyllable i tell you and could as a bear as you know i'm not laughing because i am straight and therefore i'm exerting my heterosexual privilege via in a derogatory way no eases thought of that of that part of that of that and that's what i have yet but the weird thing is we give you isn't something like schimmel who is usually the victim of his own joke yes in his life had the life of fucking job yeah and then the political whatever's politically incorrect about it itself offering a software threat and then i don't like he is the victim of every jew every joke has a victim and symbols act it was him yet in something somehow that can elevate ivan i agree i agree yeah i don't know if i have these discussions but like i for some reason i'm just able the separate i i don't know that you know revisionism is necessary just because times change in terms of what you you you feel personally attached to her what you like i don't i don't odds visa will difficult but but i can says it already owned for me i can still you know i don't do we delete all that stuff do we delete are emotional connection to right i i don't see how that's possible tackle and it's like when we damn my have hitler's paintings i have to separate you have that book on i have the coffee table excuse called raspberry lauda angles lot of hard angles not a lot of people but a lot of beautiful buildings oh i used to joke about that it's like well you know hitler was vegetarian but but yeah there's an i think i also in a lot of it is just being the soldier nostalgia for being too beating a kid a like watching rickles on the dean martin roast and every but it's a totally different school of show business than new and i grew up with golfway told me the story that when he worked with reckles rickles would would just roast him all day uh and then afterwards a poolside now you set a small lead money the eu is a very carrying well that lowvolume that's where my grandmother said she go see him in vegas and he has yet on everybody but he too she's she put it like this he apologizes very nicely renault but the only thing with bob did he couldn't understand is that that he wore jeans onstage right easily bob you can't you have to get the dress nice addressed and that's the general that's the thing that broke for that generation like these kids they they would do about those things that was karlin the kid he's talking gripe but what i'm saying is in that era in for us it's i think it's like we understand that he's seeking safe haggar he gets it whatever and it doesn't have any leasehold me we gotta shoulder that and if it's like a you can attack me for y'all still respecting somebody who is not of david his original like and that's in and that's and that's a that's a valid point that you do have to update in and he didn't he didn't need he i was watching him i went down it was yuri lewis rabbit telling when he died oh yeah and i was watching the jerry lewis rose from 1968 rickles was on it with the two things that but that it will rise rose that's not even the right the idea the one the first who the killer who's just like jerry i say this from the bottom of my heart jerry you're a jew his justly all right yeah but the other almost didn't he goes you know jerry's a clown and there are a lot of grey clowns emmett kelly that's about i will not give up the other baru hui was rose the is when the martin ones and j jim stewart was on the day is and he goes a jimmy i spoke to the family you're doing fine hosts one there was one where he was on it was his last appearance he was his last carson appearance because johnny was retiring on and then he may johnny lab zohar johnny got into a coughing fit careful john every time you cough lentils at home highfiving the life little good will and i love one and it's a real shit have you seen that one where they built him a club filled with just celebrities the martin there's a dean martin rose who was might have been the d martin show where they wanted to recreate alive rickles show i have that 'cause i signed up for the guide them the other demar the i never saw coming i had no idea there were so many but there was one that came it might have been the d martin show but they set up a club they mean on a sound stage and had people like pat boone in the audience all the celebrities kartal malta bar like he was probably nineteen seventy the early 70s mid70s yeah and and rickles just went up and did his club in insulted ever yeah it was great and as you sweating mid70s when the american flag had wide lapels warren ugly i go it's an interesting question though about because i had this moment where you know being a comic as long as we have you know you and i are old guys already yeah and and by the way just two i am fully aware before anybody jumps down my throat about don rickles and whatever i know i'm i'm i'm done i'm in i'm with this is not what is contemporary this is my view of it pete townsend was talking about the john entwistle used a bitch about wrap that he didn't get it yeah and he said it's not our job to get it it's our job to get out of the way and and i am aware of that yeah i get it i get it yeah well no i mean i you know i can it's becomes difficult with depending on what the transgression is here to stay supportive you'll have to be supporters somebody you can condemn somebody and you can you think somebody's awful but still say that second record though that sure you know and then you somebody said a really smart the genome our solar arguello should young new comic really really funny really funny and really martin somebody was bashing some on woke person new than apologize for it and she said you know you have to let people make their mistakes and grow in public he kinda led have to you have to let people grow catches white dot terrorise them into some sort of cultural siberia yeah the you know the my last special the one before this one um i had the whole thing at the end of boat the our word uh and how it's now relegated wizards see word and i tried to do on those bits ya ya and i wouldn't in i did i mean the bit was a boat the strictly the nomenclature of equating that word with the n word in this year oh it was actually addressing the that that whole thing it wasn't about like i don't use it that way no because then i did use it uh you know i know is that i would never do this and then i did i cheated all over the place and i you know i i said it and i said the n word in the sewer day and i say them now relish at home time mutter myself but whatever i would i would nothing happened but i wouldn't have done i wouldn't do it today i got i did a bit about it about defending you know the use of it in you know in a sense of like in a ended this style gic way um y yo how you know what i mean i grew up with that yeah right but then i guy the guy that igf someone i think it was an email the just said we you know i'm the parent and in and that was a you know i like i had a couple of swipes but in eventually i got a handle on it i i did it and then i met john mcginley lose of very on the forefront of of of all those issues and it becomes real via an and it's not about first amendment that's about though these people have feelings and their young their lives and you're okay i guess that's the thing hey how attached are you two that really need it have you read them of using that word it's not he's no one's censoring anybody yeah it's like you're hurting people's feelings and it's already hard for them yeah exactly brilliant yes i guess they have a rough enough time any and you can and that is truly you can say that will riggles talking about fragile new have enough to have enough they have enough trouble i my my feelings about that are like you say whatever you want the shoulder the uganda water take the take the burn yeah tell uber then handle it what the what's this new were the new season standard against evil what's it did you finish it's all done joey finished it premiers november first on ifc house a different uh it takes the story it takes us roy for the premise of the story is the whole idea of the shows was quite simple i love horror movies are my football so i just thought what if i did a horror movie but put a character in the middle of it that didn't belong here and it was basically what if my dad was an harm of has he wouldn't give it doesn't know just know does he does no he doesn't give fuck right and and we used to make that joke if you remember the indicating kong he's on the building in the planes are flying area my brothers and i used to joke did of our dad was in one of those planes that he would fly out of formation check the scoring the baseball game comeback shoot a little bit more go back and i just thought it would be interesting if like what if instead of buffy the vampire slayer it was just an old irish guy that didn't give a shit and and that was the the premise and i didn't i my mother is still alive but his wife who would have been my mother dies before the show starts and because i needed them to have a giant vulnerability or is just hassle oca them what john mcginley did with that was created this amazingly nuanced character is a good actor huh israel has been around for a long time ago he's not fuck in a row it doesn't seem age much either doesn't know he's he's good lives at the gym i mean is this arms are and i say this knowing he's listening to it his arms are terrifying um uh no easing these in crazy like an old irish boxer from like a poster for the he's like hundreds who was in the issue williams was like five over visas and wall street is a platoon he was in any given sunday but he's built like an old irish bar and how he's all upper body and but he created the he gave this character so much more than than i had give it it on the page and and i have to also give jet at foreign ego amazing kudos for the way she balances him the ballast that she and as such a strong actress the because john is done so much of this work that for the second season i had to right up to him so i developed a whole arc of a story line where there is a time travel element where he's going to try to go back and save his wife's life oh wow and as as always happens makes things much worse oh good and that's the arc this as the art the season and what's the name of the record that see the digital this is what did them i call it a record 'cause i don't know what else to call it how it looks it in a my doubt because my downloads sounds vaguely filthy ah mister funny men and this is what the kids on her the account how many you've done how many record seventy special uh i have the worst i proudly have the worst album titles fun houses fine yeah but it's an they keep up album and his version is albums much better uh let me put my thoughts in you i know what's wrong which was okay this is mr funding in screwed what i mean the bigger problem is really the art work generally yes like looking at what you can almost any comedy record in you know somebody who's like move was i think and yeah homeless every comedy record bullets every comedian gets to be a rockstar for that that one day we you get to look figure your album cover via i did all right like you know in retrospect i don't have any stupid once i ask you know the last don't try to be funny on your color exactly don't try to be funny on your cover that's it that's it iin the war here quad split headshot via the worst people from boston we both novaya the what were their different panels viking different hats and i can't say it on the air but i'll tell you what were

totally teasing you i this book is about a period where you could actually get most of the people to play themselves as their younger selves and it'd be pretty quiet pretty close he added in various no it's going to be there like documentary and and narrative at like fictional adaptation series ideas around that's great i'm excited about it i mean i want to do more of that stuff anyway and always have or have in the last few years and so it's like fund to think about how to make the i mean people i've just felt really gratified by the kinds of ideas that have been a you know because as skeptical that the whole hollywood here at it so far than the people that i think we're going to be working with are awesome well we're did you how'd you start out where'd you end up you went to the academy graduate you got brothers and sisters yeah i gotta younger brother take that's a good name yeah he's get he lives in nigeria really he's a foreign service officer he's a diplomat o good for

about luminaries he's going to have lumina or something he's having he's getting married in december in england here on dan and he's going to have all this new mexican stuff we've been talking a lot about the new bringing the new mexico to the new mexico christmas vibe to london thoughts nice yeah so what would you go to college after you can ran away to fill it i mean i wanted to be on the rules like right away it was all about new york as obsessed with new york and with the idea of lake eastern urban magic get the eu's when he grow up in a smart household in new mexico you i i want to go to where really happens i like all this cowboy cowboy intellectual shit i that's exactly how i felt i mean it is disturbing to be talking to you about this there there's basically no one who gets out of new mexico so those of us who do all have the same kind of like course spirit about that if you go back they go back oh hi tonnes tons yeah i mean you're going back now i've been thinking about it yeah it's drawing i think about it to the way on wife yeah my heejoo like i don't i like i i don't i'm done with new york i'm almost down with la whereas from argun go this is how i feel you say i'm too young to feel it this is literally the conversation i've been having while i'm here i'm like i will always feel like i live in new york that i don't need to live there anymore and so therefore where do i feel good well that's only corral us exact cheese like me literally only corral starting to feel that it's the only play me for me is not quite corral but i always romanticise prowess but i'm a couple of miles away how you i think would i very close to corral but a all right so dan study what english and classics and your girl at the plan was only good was to be a writer now what a crazy idea what idiot would do that you can't be a writer what was the point of in new york and what just like hang out no the plan was to idea you know i was eighteen i didn't have i had a i had a homing instinct not a plan like i'm gonna come to college because you have to go to college like i'll go as close to new york as they can go and i was really good student and i cared about being gets you now i love school and great china japan but no the plan what it what happened was and this is the right call like i now understand this in a way that i can articulate and didn't at the time that i advocate for it it's like i had to put myself near stuff that would so i could be in a position to have what should happen next revealed to me brian what i mean later that's what new york is yet it's a no to be you know for me and and for others that that's kind of what the books it out here at sense of i don't know why i'm going here i'm just going here because it seems something's telling me to do that and i can't tell you why and i may not even know right away or for years but it's where my next myself is going to emerge on the oddly e know it's because the place it new york holds in the cultural unconscious yes for years since the 70s yeah specially if you're groovy artistic you know literary it it's like it it's grooms large yeah it means something to mean something it's an idea and hand but there but still to this day there's nothing like it i mean you you know you can i can't live anywhere unlike well but do you did you find always at like i was just in new york and for the first time in my life i went over to jazz at lincoln center as fiftythreeyearold and it's have always been there and i was there for for fifteen years on and off and i did nothing like oh yeah hey like all this stuff veiled me like people you go the museum of modern art i did once twice here but i am now like i feel like i'm ready to do that stuff in its fortunate because now i understand new york pretty fucking while i can get around and ought to do what other so if i go in for three days on my show again see let's do it but that's okay that is exactly why my i feel like my current relationship with new york is among the best that i've had which is like when you leave you are able to to be a kind of the it's almost like the first fifteen years are investing in understanding the place enough that you can become a named formed tourist when you go there so now i do that too like i go in from upstate you know every week or so every ten days and i do three days of city staff all my friends i gutted restaurants i do all these things that i had no energy to do because those so relentlessly overstimulated by the time i laughed at that i was like i can't even like i just want to hide and so now there's this the slate has been cleared and it's like new york it's fun again but that i don't ever feel when i was nineteen and started coming to the city from philly all the time i felt like mm i needed it too like kind of worked on me in order to help me figure out how to become myself and now i know how to be myself how did you go there were year ranked ninety eight i moved to philadelphia and i was in school my dad is a new yorker semi dagger opens in status in town via and my grandparents unawares there for a while a who's going to get that apartment come on you tell me about the survivors adel got your grandparents of art okay it's on has pink walls the who is getting that next ruth good men lives there she she's you know she's she's it's her place man here i mean no one's it's a rental it still like i know rentcontrolled renzo deeply rent controlled rental yeah your eyes are like glinting the cia is the new yorker area edge rooms juve everyday that have what's the kitchen like hallander yeah it's the last of the rent control listen everything you're thinking is true it's your fantasy come true it's like the per it's an it's walker they've this would be good always is when you've when i was there you like the idea of control was i i'd rent stabilize but that doesn't mean something i and stabilise to that that's like they're like it's not as brutal so really when you move to new york in earnest this is when this book starts yeah i mean i started coming to the exactly like i started coming to the city from philly to see show i love the story is it's in the introduction to the book it's basically like i i moved to new york the first summer that idea college says after freshman year i i moved to the city i lived in my grandparents apartment i worked at murray yeah and i got a job in a restaurant you worked at sesame street i had an internship at sesame productions or whatever that it was the production company that pretty sesame street that will you write in turn shed you're gone for showbusiness i was not go i was like this is the justification for me being here that's the one the ethics as all i i didn't pick it it was like available and we really i was like i need to go hang out in new york city trash camera oscar with no no they never let me near it wasn't a coup it was like i don't even remember what i did i wasn't near actual sesame street it was the production cut it was it you know is a midtown office building that was set not no would you how could you work for sesame street nakos he were seriously streets production company produces a lot of shows sesame street the crown jewel i was a lowly turn we love the you're acting like this is my choice yet one day they rolled in and they were like do you want to go to the sesame street sat and i was like nath no that's not out having no anxieties me i was i was i you didn't meet ernie organiser continued i wanted to meet rock voice mark i tend not grow her no grown all right grover and the guy with nights in serious who you're like all right yeah he taught me how to ride the subway right are you there you're working says mystery not going to not doing all of the things that i know i've disappointed you deeply and just i got a job in a restaurant 'cause i needed to make money because i wasn't in school and i had to lake support you know i had free rant that i had to lake right pete or whatever you run by close i guess whatever i cared about at that time records and so i got this job at this i got this job training to work at this restaurant crossstrait from grand central station said they were opening any day now and they are hiring up staff i got this job and we end of course it took much longer for them to open and they had anticipated citybased they had hired this staff of kids board hot city kids who went there every day for like four hours and got paid this lowly amount of money and did things like practiced waiting tables and learned the wine list and stuff like that and my coworker was nickel anc who was the guitar since strokes and he was in this band like hit with his friends called the strokes of now the portal opened and you're well no i mean no it was years that was nineteen that was the summer of ninety nine and it was i mean it was a couple of years before like albert the other guitarist had not joined the band yet they weren't they it was my friend nix like ban nick i was nick was like halfheartedly in college and they were just city kids and i was i mean the portal that opened that summer was not rock and roll it was new york like oh nicholas cool in in that he grew up in the city and understood how to sort of like wander wale and how to get into bars and how did you set just it was sort is it was what like i had been learning i it with training wheels in philadelphia that as a new mexico kid like how do you how do you orient yourself in urban life and let these places kind of lake you know wash over you and expose you two things you're supposed to be exposed to how to get the rhythm down and that like nick and i would just hang out after after pretending to wait tables and you know lake wander round office parks and smoke weed in office park teller fina behind off sparked pillars and sort of like just wander around midtown it wasn't and then sometimes i would go downtown to lake st mark's and sneak into bars and do stuff like that beazley it was like that was what was pal 99 summer here that must that summer was those were my marriage was falling apart that was the other big thing that is happening for every avatars you knew marc maertens mary and who's out more a yeah and then he got thrown out of that house in the other find to subway weighed down us instead it was way chiller than what you are dealing with try and dukan redo one man shows that was that are that is i was the best theater oh my god the west bath yeah that became significant for me later really yeah because all the artists where had their studios in there and still do it's still let me extra to yes rate on the west that the west village became later after i finally moved to the city in two thousand two became like my spot because i don't like coolness like i don't like i didn't like i do not want to be on the larry cider off that city will whites places for me when i when i moved there i guess was eighty nine the first time and then i went back in nine the four remember you saying that yeah but but you know and i talk a little bit in the book about the you know what happened then but it really wasn't the only put i was just a little weird historical artifact you put that this from the guys from the generation before radio exxon giuliani for two minutes well i needed that i've might do i thought i was well represented good you were i agree um so this is all just before nine eleven yeah and the you've you found your place on the west side where it's not hip with artists that are well no i mean i went back to philly for like that so what i'm saying is that the that's why it's this is an important about the book the s not bands like i wanted to be a lawyer or something i thought it was gonna be a lawyer i was a school kid but i was pulled towards this sense of magic and misery about new york city that is the idea that we are already just talking about and he hadn't yeah i loved writing but i didn't work from my school newspaper i didn't it wasn't like what what it was was it was like i'm i i i was being drawn to some expression of culture that was related to my generation that i that had not happened yet and i did not know that that's what i was being drawn to you that i during the next few years in the part the four nine eleven were all these bans interpol yesterday as strokes and in you know white stripes and other place like around the world there all the stories that converged in the book all of those people were feeling similar things like assent this basically the same age as i was and feeling a kind of like i wanna make something that i don't entirely know what it is and like the world is not really receptive for this kind of this kind of vibe it's not supposed to be about urban call right now it's not supposed to be about notions of near and what was it supposed to be about in a music industry is supposed to be about dance music erica in you know i i mean in england it definitely was about dance music or was about like postscript popstar th i mean and in my business it was like i mean in the writing what became my business it was like it wasn't that exciting to imagine yourself as a rock journalists because there wasn't a lot of cool rocked the end so that's right it was sort of submerged in jam jammed asked you for a little while they're right i didn't think oh i'm going to be a music journalists i thought there's something about the way it feels to wander around manhattan at four p m on a really hot day in the summer where everyone rich has left the at they're making me feel like i'm getting somewhere and i can't really tell you why and so i went back to college and i studied and an ice kept in touch with neck and a couple of other people that i owe you and he would come and play shows and then i would see in philly and i will go see him and i had friends in philadelphia who are starting to lake want to go to shows so it was like it was a thing to do that had enough in it for years it was a thing to do that had nothing to do with aspiration of any kind and that was really important and it was also like it was like traditional rocking aware coming back it was not necessarily art rock punk rock was sort of finished in a way and and i guess wakeham sort of 'cause like some of the bands in the book i was given like for some reason at that time when i was there in late 90s in then like i left by two thousand two yeah but i was given cds and stuff for iced up for some reason i have the jonathan fireeaters he shot up i do that's awesome yeah they were so amazing i listen to it and i was into it but like what you're with that have been have 90s yes okay so okay so that was that times out yeah yeah they were the yeah they were round is great ho right i have my buddy john daniel was involved with music so i was sort of up to speed on something yeah okay will and 90s wealth that's all right i mean but like like jazz it only o good if you were there i mean that theoretically lay the thing about looking at the book and reading through some of it is that like when i read please kill me that was the those were before me and i was when that was what everybody was going to new york to find was that that's what this is about no i get that with moscow eyes were going to find that for sure and you kind of right about that yes like that's we're all looking for that thing that was like just it was just the the remnants of it and the and the people that were involved with that you'll first wave of whatever made new york cool were just kinda droopy greyhaired dudes walk around in their weather payments that don't fit any more with somebody going like that guy used to be something yeah if that if they are even living there anymore but i i guess i just think that that's the continuum i mean it's not like every winning please kelme weren't weren't polling on i see the continuum of that notion of new york identity as much much 70s as going ponca much further i mean i think much scher further back that than just whole idea it's it's it's i mean this is later but it's fifty yeah and it's jazz it's it's fucking ellis island man it's like come to it's it's in the american identity of new york gonna come here and you're going to reinvent yourself and the culture all potency of that has is almost as old as you know as the city in some way and so but specifically in the world of the arts yes you know what what you know what came out of new york and and what sort of defined it is you had a wealthy people who were willing to kick in to make she had happened yes right yeah and a lot away sure to reject the of a lot of the factors but then i mean you know that for us because this is my taste in i i i think yours too like the punk the 70s punt seen in cb jesus just like i meaning please county was my total bible i'm obsessed with everybody and napa i love that music that's my stuff i came to that late you're now the earth your specialty is more material for the business card wait to the partly to the party on air safety and wrong kinda leadership skills doesn't look good for any of us march mirror merit love martin on but you know i mean obviously there's also the whole greenwich village like i mean dylan for most people dillon is the touchstone for this and it's so the idea that new york is this place that's constantly polling on a previous constantly kind of coopting and borrowing its own past self via to reinvent for a new group of young people essentially the a new for them version of the same thing how are they related to turn all right they can still find the space there if they can still kinda save their which is the question now but like for my for this book for young in the bathroom like i don't see it as a see it as just this sort of the the the chapter in the cannon at that new york cultural story it's just rose right into the bookshelf right there you know after police kelme and after madonna and light up before whatever comes next but it's just it's a stop it's a stop on the larger train i think that and what comes next is going to be a a prominent either chinese or russian trend do you have that i'm good authority seems like it that's the vets me speculating that summer noncash catastrophic start i have is not catastrophic at all as i say that so so when now way what starts to drive when did you meet the the the way great mark spitz i met the late great mark spitz pretty early i i assume he he served as some sort of guide to whatever the fuck happened to you while yeah i think he'd really like you putting it that way well what mark would say is that i thought he tommy everything i know of on so he would want me to say it that way i tell you this bright i've kid from new mexico through philly who's looking for a rock fantasy and that dini and blames outta some yes he's like i can help you out seles ruin your life and i was like great and say it's the glare sorry yeah he talks in his memoir about how i was wearing flipflops for spammy and he's like they're not shoes zia like he was very my new mexico vibe was pretty united wearing makeup i didn't like i was still kind of like fresh scrubbed girl that point and i think mark with space mark dea like you know bad bad asrat girls with lake peroxide blond hair and he was sort of like you are entirely to clean for me basically and i was like okay but you like me no no as a recipe for disaster who's gonna win well that's where it's later and he would say things to me like yes chased me you know and i was like hot can you do the thing amassing unity or what he writing for spin when you met him yes so the way i'm marklevinshow sara louissant who is also a great character in the book and one of my best friends was my roommate in new york when i first moved there so i graduated from college and by that time it was clear that like the city's music scene was happening and i felt i was like dare to it i was inspired by all of i was inspired i was inspired by and have sudden a there was something to write about nato i then was like i wanna be a writer who writes about this but i i taught secondgrade frontiers first 'cause like i can't be a writer thought that's nice i taught at an allboys private school on the upper east side uh glazer's no really has a double life for awhile we were real like fullon teacher major oh yeah misguided men secondgrade whether in how what how did that and why did that and it a two year and it's like your estate teacher and then you either maybe you kind of the carrying on of that would have been to go get a degree in education and like stay in school and would stop you from doing that oh you know i'm are on that cya now now he loved at he he would talk about how wake up in the middle of the night and i would go 'cause i had i talked to my sleep and here go boys get in line and you'd be like jesus who is this girl and is scary she's like yeah so now okay so now you're you're getting you're you're getting involved with the rock senior roommate is what is she says sarah was marks like little protege at spin so i met mark before i graduated from college actually at coachella the one of the first coach as i went out with sarah to see if we could live together we went to this rocked festival together to lake try it on here and on she introduced me to mark who is i mean it's it's in the book their their meeting is pretty awesome like he was he didn't understand instant messenger and because and he's mark air sarah i was like this sort of protec savvy little jewish girl in new jersey who is who liked his writing it's like high and i'm also girl he had like why is this window coming up and they can eventually she wore him down in the house and so she introduced me to him and we had you know a serious series of battles for about a year and a half that then got together and yeah i mean mark was my tour guide through he was writing for span he was a hot shit writer writing cover stories about all these bans and how'd you manage not to get all fucked up i don't know my i honestly i i think it's genetic i i really do i just i don't know may just have the thing i'd die went out and drank every night like everybody else and reich you know there is all kinds of drugs around in yet but i just didn't care that much about it for you but it's not good for me that makes it sound like something i get credit for and it's not like i get credit every not be compelled by that like the like to just a drink in smokes from we'd and just enjoy the music you don't have to go you know you i mean i like you don't have to divert alliance but it's it's it makes it sound like it's a matter of sort of will and it's not it that's why are saying connecticut's like i don't have i'm compulsive in other ways right now i get it i get it that's why i'm saying you're lucky unlucky yeah so that's how okay unlucky so let's talk about you know the the bands that define this thing and the ark of this book because yeah like i just i i think i got my first walkman album like six months ago okay i'm larry liking it so okay i think i got that guy so record i thought that was get those good singer yeah so the strokes you knew that you saw them become what they want us in then and then like the the white trips our guests were coming in from detroit occasional yeah but i didn't the white strips were not like sort of first generation in new york of that were like any who has that were the strokes interpol yay as an lcd soundsystem feel like the whole lcd soundsystem thing like people are like you got your view murphy guy got your mike i don't know what he did so i had to get quite catch up with dfa miyazu jonathan the guy over what is the aga he sent me all this shit yeah i like that the prince worn dance called record yes good first record i love okay maharidge starting went ahead to go find me that record like i said you have one of them around their way it not be you know we have one ring laying around here we were using as a as a as a like a a map for when you eat your time castle your way into this that's you will love james and y'all that's i listen to a no it's great it's great i watch the movie and i i actually narrated a short documentary five lcd thousands of heavier like who the fuck is this no anyway script evaluated out but like i know he something because he mental i too a lot of people like i can see how they met something that people can also see how they kind of like you know kind of like well there's a there's a gap pure that was once occupied by the talking heads yeah that we should climb in do totally the talking heads said that i mean that's what i got no problem that kinds of sending okay i am not jane so you're not to defend now i understand how music work tell me more i understand you tell me my understand that there is now out of new she it yes and that you just keep inventing the old shit i think i mean yeah all right sure i think the thing that all the judge the the period that the book covered with the book is about is not music it's about all the things we i talked at it's about it's about new york it's the central character it's about what it feels like for this group of people at that period of time under to do a thing that is eternal as we just described which is to be young and to feel on scene and to get together with certain friends serendipitous lay that you meet who unlock something in u n two in the shadow of lake at theoretical anonymity make something beautiful that makes you feel alive i mean it's pure that's like that's art that's young people that's new york city that's rock and roll that the but it's important for the book that the context is also from my generation are these people that we're talking about it's happening in in coincidence with all these other major global events like napster we just 2000 and nine eleven which is one hundred percent you know a huge part of this story obviously and it's about and then the reinvention of brooklyn and the commodification of brooklyn and the exporting of that via the internet the newlyborn internet to the world as this sort of notion of how to live like a lifestyle brand to be earth to by going to interview james he said i was trying to dip into that like the brooklyn idea in williamsburg and all this stuff in kenneth ease my way in he goes oh yeah that's all our fault like cool thanks scott and it's that's what so this story is about that but it's about that through the lens of paul banks and carreno and yes you know later jack white or the kingsley on guys or whatever and then off to england and off to the killers in vegas and around the world but that record we should nikola pile of what you did have it'll be about three hours them sti no than i i know i the jonathan firefighter that's a hall in allied it yeah that's a you know you get points for that that's a big crowd point the area the i like one thousand out is great i thought it was pretty good but those bans i mean to answer your questions such as it is it's like there's no like yeah there's nothing new under the sun and this is a retaliating of a generational story there will be i i believe that people make things new i i'm not one of those people that yadav a problem with appropriation i don't have a problem with with the of the evolution of music and he because like if you really look at rockets the people that really make something completely new or generally misunderstood and you may be years later people like i think i get it and somewhere they're like nato the other but there's a core group of fans that are sort of like worthy the only one said get it yet that bullshit any basically the story of the book too i mean if this is mark says this in the book i mean he's one of the greatest characters in it where he's basically like look i was 28 and writing for spain or whatever less was thirty something his thirty already and writing for span and like mark who had an encyclopedia harry say that pete accent encyclopedic thank you very much sandy pratt thing music and film knowledge and all that stuff of was sitting there in new york city loving york city's sort of but just board and that the thing that this that this that there's the sort of beginning of the book that everyone had in common energized boredom energy everyone was bored james murphy was bored he did not know carreno carreno was bored she did not know julian julian was bored gillian didn't know paul paul uh the interpol paul was bored and it was like in their own independent corners of this town at that period of time they all did something about that board and then mark spitz or sara or any of the other sort of non musicians but journalists future bloggers a and our people like all the different sort of um i don't know contestants in this in this like road show here all had in common that sense of what we have here right now is really not enough and we need to like build something cooler and no one else is doing it so we're gonna do it so when spits heard like i mean he says this hilariously in the book where he's just like you know when i heard the white straits it took me a minute to figure out that i was being saved because it was my job to write about mark mcgrath every day and like there it was boring it oh yeah loaded orient and that's the story idea like i get it i get it it's like well boredom mikey to classify all those artis as board i understand that but i think that if you in the history of of what happened with punk rock in the sort of like you know kind of strange angry apathetic posturing that happened is that what it comes down to though anybody who surfaces with any consistency may be board but their workers oh right well that oh totally i mean and that's also new york city like everyone in that town has to labour via the i got a want it yeah and you've got to keep pushing two two to sort of break away from the pack of garbage because in any city especially that size you know for every one may be original band there's going to be like twenty guys just tooling through rehash especially in an era where i mean it's hard to in it's hard to overstate this and it is crazy now but i mean it really seems crazy now that like being in a rock band i loved the guys and dumped than fired or talk about this and later the walkman they talk about how like telling your friends that you were in a band was like now i take us that late yeah it was like really didn't elettronica music kills janjaweed could do we have to go through this aid rallies yes on thursday is at sad than you know like you're gonna make us do that you'll biased drinks rate i mean it was like the least possible cool thing to do and and it was like lame and and kind of an opposition on your friends to ask them to conceive lesser so this whole the it's hysterical because relatively quickly people would be dressing across the country and around the world like they had just been thrift in on the lowery side but not when these bans formed but that's interesting because that whole thing you know that thrifty thing has reinvented itself with every generation of people yeah it's like the now like their thrift in 1980's clothing and i'm like no i know i now i'm feeling that to it's weird like his when i was in high school we were thrift in shark skin yeah not a better yeah yeah and then i had ended at kinda the whole for you know that rockabilly kind of boos like whatever the fuck it was going after the suits in any time we speak to someone about this like can we address this with the culture in general that we just nominate certain erez as as as take as as out of the loop of of going to be rediscovered some ambitious ivan around anymore like fortunately for now everything is made so badly can i know that will never happen you'll never never be thrifty 2017 they should is not going to hold up maybe we've inadvertently solve the problem rallying stealing the fascists that were previously thrift it yeah this is not even making shit that will hold up to be so maybe we just need a generation a cycle through that in like twenty years people will actually have to create new stuff because it will literally going at all disintegrate and have to create outfits said will withstand the heat of there i'm sorry i've taken me right out of there i did it i'm sorry for him you're not enclosed outfits with of'short new mexico's supposed to fair relatively well i mean waters going to be a problem but waters going to be a problem but we have the mountains we aquifers dory right on an akko yeah we give a lot of as i understand it no no eight i think we give a lot of water to california so mother fugger's he had one of the california's thirsty mansour okay so like i know owner free burger this one again with a list of names like oh i show you read all your quotes first come on of course yes okay then you looked at the list through an area in and i kinda poked around it like you know the chapter headings ps but a vote like i don't know grizzly bear the national i came much really lay to and i understand why they're good but i i don't know that i go back to the records up much tv on the radio maize i listen to their first and second record i'm like holy shit this is the media their incredible yet the a as the first couple of records i listened to her i had him the hives i had that record i remember liking so what is your problem nothing we're just get vampire weaken don't think i've ever heard him all right we'll interpol i think i got a recent record with like their back in a mike i missed it the first time pretty good we've routines just gotta whoever teens rokaya feeling about pretty good yeah kind of punky right yeah yeah i hope we will come on something and you'll be like you really have to go and do that is that what you're looking for ya well i buy a records i'm i'm mike i mean i mean a renaissance had music appreciation i'll send you a list i need i don't know like i have your book i know yet we'll you do though actually 'cause you can't start gone mouldy reaches yeah amazing did you play who's got the crowd i don't have it all right we'll play who's got the crap by the multi pages is just one song well that song in particular is your gateway drug for them dave across comedian i know him with his worse are you hold steady i like that guy greg gregory great right yeah he's a good talkers if thinker is good the killers i like that okay kingsley on first who records and crime what happened well y but okay that that's another alternate title for this book sure is where's the staying power while they're all still making albums and touring and dura al like literally all of these people yeah so like you okay let's talk about them what happened what did have well it's up first talk about like the whole that you know a nine eleven left in the world in that like in terms of near all over that chapter see that's another place right you would you but compounding the board white whatever that boredom was was that horrendous existential to terror sadness grieving like i think i talked to spits about that a bit did he ah but a lot of this came out of that well it didn't come out of that it riot it was positioned as gross that word is under the circumstances to be heard in a different way and buy more people as a result of it so lake nino none of these important records the first as record the first strokes record the first interpol record early dfa staff none of that had been was written post nine a lead and it was not a response to that ren before but it was about you know it was about all these themes that we are just talking about yet culture considered obsolete like sadness and anxiety and loud guitars as the solution to that as an expression of that is a response to being alive right it was like oh that's old news and then you know the towers came down and new york city is under attack and america is under attack and it makes you kind of return to the the sort of lake core aesthetics of rebellion and that's rock and roll so what are you want to hear you on here jack fucking white playing guitar you wanna hear the urgency of the first strokes record he wanna you want a kind of a manic toughness the that and i think so these bans who it's not like if nine eleven hadn't happened the strokes wouldn't have broken an englanda had already broken in england and kind of ignited this industrywide like doubletake towards new york before nine eleven happened there album was supposed to come out like the week after nine eleven the first one in the states so it was already kicking off but what nine eleven did is a couple of things i thank and this is argued in the book it it it animated it it increase the number of people who were immediately feeling the need for that kind of sound and it also turned the world's attention to new york city culturally in a way that it had not been it had not had the attention of of sort of like global cool hounds in that way in sense i dunno i also like it they were it was also the guy seventy hanshin for perseverance yes i mean ranked sympathy yeah you know you're bruce springsteen how to go to werleigh hurst tracy and got them back call tied to hit it and yeah and i think i mean all these bans talk about touring in the wake of that and being it off doing comedy in the wake of sure i and the but being cast is kind of emissaries for new york and again for this idea of what new york is about that the entire world on some level was either either loving your heating at that point in new ways it was it was interesting time because if you were new yorker and you did live there yeah you're like we're we're gonna fight yes totally and we're thinking about that now and and it and the other thing that it did i think for the purposes if this seen such as it is and tune day from tv on the radio talks about this in the book i think he when he when he said this to me it really kind of it was a turning point behind her standing as he talks about how the szekely he thinks nine eleven put a kind of pause button on the jansher vacation race there has already happening i mean the the sort of post the giuliani into bloomberg cleaning up of everything sure that would eventually result in the new york the slick anodyne near erni lives there no one does it's it's saudi billionaire's who have apartments for their homes yet they're summer homes that they like might go to it's me the ranch russian it's all yeah and it is it's well chinese i don't know what an honor i it's it's just feel like you've done it feels like it doesn't have a a cultural identity has architectural and the identity right now is money money has a bleaching a fact eventually on culture i think in right now new york feels to me like burnt out literate like whited out like nine i'm not saying that race i'll have her hands out in the way that it was burnt out was bankrupt brought down in the way back right that that like acid has been porn on it and it's it's blake bleached out like i don't know i mean i keep seeing you know i don't know what causes this but when a create is her your it has deadened yeah by capitalism yet money on and by people that don't that day they don't like it will be interesting to do really explore what is rooting there you know in the sense that you know it is completely antithetical that to what it used to be when it was i think the big difference was there was a time were always money there but the people that worked there could live this and now that central and what's funny and not ha ha funny but of course like the it's all connected to this era because that's way jane saying it's our fault is funny the in an again brooklyn brooklyn because it's all those people the new york became the kind of place where you would invest in that kind of apartment because of all of the culture that that re in live in debt and made it interesting and sort of buzz he and brand rival in that way and now all these people who bought their on some level whether they know it or not as a result of this this latest ingretation of that new york thing i live in a place where none of those people can be but this is also like in a way so boring because it's like no shit that's called the cycle of art madda called lake art versus commerce 101 i mean it's going to just play its that and held out over how they all moved out of the city like the that generation of their artist once they got money they all live here they orly or here or they live in new jersey or connecticut or are you not a lot of them keep sort of like i love this i understand this instinct i feel this instinct they keep places in new york like a little apartment on near the barrier rodal whatever lay in just to kind of be like no no i still guide of me i still have a place wrestle like this so this the the ark of this book front yo two thousand eleven sort of the ends in brooklyn beat becoming the like the the the wealth center of hipsters totally and the but also just that that did it ever have any integrity other than for sure but i also just think it's yes it did i'll answer that but also that the idea that that would have one of the things that's hard to see from now because it's so obvious that that is what took place is how unlikely that seemed that that would at the time if you had been sitting there in two thousand two and and sort of prognosticating that in twenty in ten years or whatever like williamsburg a place you could not get cabs to take you was going to be the default locus of cool for the globe for but it's weird because there was some would have been laughed out of that conversation what's really like i lived in the story i had an apartment in the story from 95 five hill like two thousand and two whenever they might sub wetter was just informed by the new known of the building that he now add the lease uh quick note with note under the door there were people like louis had a place in williamsburg there were people moving into long island city yeah and likes her was sort of happening but that was because you could get space fits dole rahab winning is that it's just like everyone move to williamsburg because it was cheap brand because in this to return to it ten days saying i mean it was like you could get free he indeed siddig met each other because they lived in the same converted loft and they were passing each other's rooms enough and seeing that the same shit basically was on the floor at each other's rooms and it was sort of like i guess we should probably talk you know you've got a same weird stuff in there and like loss and in that's not like it's so easy to be like wow that must have been so cool and it's like it's it's only romantic later at the time it's like i need to live somewhere and and and be able to paint place with that right but that's that's the story of the amine ripe but that context or that that framework of life has repeated itself yes generations generation totally though the yeah the law thathat's another title that we here but the thing about nine eleven that tunisia was saying that's important is that whole justification we're talking about in the money in the bleaching out or however you want a phrase it these are they his theory and i by this now is that that was coming much sooner and nine eleven pause debt because there was a sense i mean people thought no one would travel there anymore no one wanted to get on planes it was like leaving for a second it was like is new york's economy going to die this the is this really like are things you can get cheap they were rally are things are things going to you know plummet here is it gonna be russ 70s new york thing again because no one will tourism will dinro wanna live here and all that stuff is they're going to be because it was it was terrifying and it was like you know every plane that flew overhead it was i mean people there were a couple of years where and so what that created for the purposes of this book is this weird a period of uncertainty that was really a gift to these bans because there was a couple of years and this is my my hay day really of lake going out in seeing shows during that time it was two thousand to two thousand three maybe into two thousand four but fair li where it was like it was just wild everyone was like are we gonna die but hey let's party en route druggie and it got dirty and it wasn't that expensive yet rent wasn't going up really of sort of just like the whole the whole apparatus was trying to figure out how this was going to shake out and it was like kohl let's play the you know you should read boca for answer some of those questions behind the scenes what did you ever read that book securing the city on my god who wrote i like i like i recommend this book to so many people i did you secretly right it no oh could cover ominous yes it's a bow it looks like the beginning of every law and order old school lunch or episode is by christopher dickey who i believe is james dickey's son in the i still see him as a you you shows up on shows on cnn and stuff but it's really about how how new york had to create its own count yes i should read that it is to the injury yes 'cause it was like we had we're our own city and we ourselves yeah because federal government and the cia and the fbi were not talking real yeah there was in the federal government was not really stepping up so these guys know what was going yeah and it was it was with giuliani still who was like we've got to make our own counterterrorism force and we've got to have international alley yet ray kelly yeah food and this guy cohen associated irate ocala read this like and then i'll be like i should have talked to him for the buck this is my life like i wake up still at night is damage extradition don't even choke of add that why never writing another oral history ever again or only organized oh it made me move state to a cabin in the woods by myself because they had an emotional breakdown like it's so hard that organization is really a nightmare well you did it and people like it yeah and you know it seems to be all in their uae dill per is let's check it out they clear talk of what do you want from me i i think it is hilarious eiriksson i let my favorite people around the book art like that one of my favorite pieces written about the book was by my friend dan aasi who hates who does not like any of this music basically he's in the book talking about conner over since he loves turnovers but he basically doesn't he's a music nerd anna anna a rock critic and this it he's just like all his hand suck basically i mean not literally but it's not his stuff but the thing is like i have i like i i'm not a connor overspent but i have him in here handsome my best interviews with people who are mike i will that is why and say like i'm at that's basically i think i i enjoy the fact that this isn't your world i think that's more fun lagging learn the creator of service project to talk to someone like that then someone who's like julian casablanca's this my favorite rock star of all time you're like well you're gonna love this yet boy do i have a book free like the this is writing i take this this part of journalism seriously like it's not my job to write a press release for one of these fans its job to convince those who aren't naturally inclined to take this as interesting that there's something there well here's what i have to say i'm happy you kids had your okay are you gonna try to say that that was not condescending he has had a knock out of it is out of all right it's a joke it was it was it was a sarcastic coffin ha ha ha pa let's shift gears demar serious yet um you know i and then the private police state fire juliana of just personal stuff i mean like i i've and talk to you really since markelle passed away a eulogized him on this show thank you for doing and you know because i like the guy and i literally your text to them like would like a week before it happened here do you talk about what happened can you talk about it or not i can totally i talk about i liked talking that i think people are a little afraid understandably to ask me about him because it's france you romantically involved on and off your best friends he was on the up and up again it seemed yes 100 percent it's really tragic i mean the answer to what happened which is what i guess is like not known i suppose i mean i don't really know i don't know anything other than he died and then i i texted you too to say sorry but then i got no information and then you know you just sit there and go igor would have and what that you it's not he's one of those guys ruettgers bound to happen but he didn't seem like it was going to happen that way well a lot of people you feel like it's bound to happen and then it doesn't i mean mark was had a history obviously of drug use and i think most people assume that he died of an overdose and that's not what happens i mean he didn't he we don't know for sure because there was not an autopsy performed huh so there's no leisure a cause of death that attack i mean cause of death unknown as far as i know you ea yes so this is what you're not afraid to talk about we have no information kind of accept i mean they i guess they just think like i so i was here and you know we shared custody of our dogs for six so mark or seven an hour years together in from my 20s and then we broke up like 10 years ago and but we stayed incredibly close friends and he was my creative partner basically like that mark this book would not exist without mark he is the person on the other end of the line consistently throughout frame iin merrier well like naughty i mean sometimes like sometimes is needed grady stuff but more just all writers need like the the i'll people i guess that create the the sort of like hootie who is on the red phone was on it was like i don't know and this isn't working in what do i do and like help and also i just need to that it's like that was the dark we are really really tight creatively and he would do the same we would talk to each other about writing every day and our dogs and so i was out here and he had been in a period of incredibly badge oppression for a couple of years on i mean probably his whole life it had been really bad and um i was helping him in his his family was helping him you know try to get the right mental health care never quite came together for him and eventually and so eventually after a couple of years lake road than the month before he died he was better than i've ever seen and he may have told you that india he was like like running a little bit yeah he was taking better care lindo visit no no one he hadn't dan i mean i think i know that mark lied to me about drugs or the years he wasn't like here's what happened the night that he died he went to a bar on the night that i think he died he went to a bar because he i mean we don't know exactly when he died he went to of our on february second and he had a couple of drinks drink and a half with a friend and at six thirty something like that and he came home and he walked the dogs with this friend and he was inside his house with the chain on the door and the locks on the door and a bowl of pasta on his on his like coffee table they found him and i couldn't hear i didn't hear from him the next day and i was worried and i didn't hear for him the next morning and we he didn't do that with that i mean he the dog think mark loved dogs er that anything in the world and wouldn't fuck around if their howarth and knew i was all the way out in california i mean he was like mortar arctic about the doksan i am pia and that's how they a his eventually i woke up a bunch of people up in his super went into his apartment and he found him just slumped over on his couch with dinner on the table so like as i have never done heroin but my understanding is you get big bell right and also there was no drug paraphernalia in his house and no drugs oregon went yeah i mean it's an aneurysm or a heart attack or or what any he i mean the dogs were fine they were in that house with him for thirty six hours and they were thirsty and in america pasta here at left that here too viking luggage joni it in like pardon me asshole i'm hungry and like their sausage in that layer she's too short can get up to that just short short leg's well you know it's it's it's nice to know that it it probably wasn't some eur grisly relapse no i mean if fit you know i don't know enough about you tell me can you like have secretly donovan of heroin fight hours before and then go home and make dinner and then die from doing that i mean a dozen quite at up but i you know but it seems to me that he put himself and his body through and you not up to him you know you know and if you don't know what you're like i don't know one is less physical was i mean you could only had one he high made him go and get one with wh what was the informality all systems go but you don't i mean this is what the there's i mean i'm going to be dealing with moves it out over that out of my life by not heart stuff that well i mean right like this is if you have a blake blood clot if you've an an aneurysm is undetectable i mean you can't like you can show people and this we don't have any control over any of this in the illusion is that lake via if you take care of yourself and you get physical zinni's sort of like drink your green juice that there is a sense of of control over warding off death in it's just not like that and like mark abuse the shit out of his body but that's also no guarantee that he was going to die in that way and you can take really gets care of yourself and you can get hit by a but i mean you know or diet something undiagnosed it's just what happens and it's horrible it's horrible but the one thing we do know was quick yeah and he was there with the two people in the world that he loved the most which are those two dogs no good swear to god i i'm sorry for your loss and congratulations on the book and it was nice of you to dedicated to him of guel i my friend imran told a a really potentially off color but actually amazing joke about this on this happened because imran loved mark in knew him very well a lesbian he goes so that's what it took to get together because there was dedicated to my parents and they got for this is the only thing mark could have done and i mean you know you knew him quite well and you guys have a shared sense of real black humor and so do i and mark i mean i can hear and sometimes it's being like the biggest promised that book was there is not enough amee nso i had to be something that will yeah you've got to have the dark your mercy you don't you know so the
