Fear Of Death Is Contagious In The Psychological Thriller 'She Dies Tomorrow'
"Our film critic Justin Chang says, she dies tomorrow feel surprisingly in tune with our present moment of unease. Everything you need to know going into sheet is tomorrow is pretty much right there in the title. This moody and more deadly funny psychological horror film opens on a young. Woman. Who Awakens one morning with a horrifying from edition of doom she believes that she's going to die tomorrow and it sends her into an eerily calm. Almost Zombie like trance. She wanders the rooms of her recently purchased lock home. She plays Mozart's requiem repeatedly on a record player and shops online for an urn to hold her cremated remains. She never explains why she thinks her death is imminent, but the look on her face is so grave and haunted that we find ourselves believing it to. The woman played by the excellent actress Caitlin she'll is named amy. Not. Coincidentally, that's also the name of the filmmaker amy scientists who has said that the movie was inspired by her own experiences with anxiety and her recognition of how easily that panic could affect those around her. And she dies tomorrow the fear of death proves contagious. The mere act telling someone that you're going to die tomorrow is enough to plant the idea that they are going to die tomorrow and so on and so on. The first person amy tells is her friend Jane played with a sharp comic edge by Jane Addams who thinks she's being ridiculous but the seed has been planted by the time Jane stops by her brother's house where a birthday party for her sister in law is in full swing she too has come to believe that she's going to die tomorrow. And once she voices this fear, the other party guests, it's only a matter of time before they also succumb. In the montage you're about to hear Simon's uses thunderously loud music written by Mondo boys and wild strobe lighting effects to achieve startling moments of operatic intensity. I'm going. To die. Tomorrow. Throughout the movie in these feverishly heightened intervals, Simon seems to be expressing level of horror that the characters themselves cannot. Jane's brother and sister in law. That's Christmas Gina and Katie Nolan do panic a little over what will happen to their daughter when they're both gone. But for the most part, everyone here tends to retreat into their own private moods showing little concern for others Jennifer Kim plays a party guest who abruptly breaks off a relationship something she'd been meaning to do for months. Her now ex boyfriend played by tune had been bay does something much more frighteningly impulsive. Interestingly no one really tries to ward off the crisis or even figure out what's going on a sense of futility sets in and stays there. There's something troublingly resonant for me about the characters inertia. Speaking as someone who's able to work from home and hasn't suffered so many have during the pandemic I'm not afraid of dying tomorrow but I recognize something of myself incitements as characters, the ones who retreat into a state of false calm maybe because screaming and expressing how they really feel might be too horrible or flat out exhausting to bear. I don't want to overstate the metaphorical implications of she is tomorrow, which was made well before the pandemic. But Simon's clearly has her finger on something about how people might respond or not respond to an invisible threat. She's made a fascinating disaster movie of the mind. This is the second feature scientists as written and directed seven years after her debut film. The lovers on the run drama sun don't shine. She's worked for more than a decade as an actor writer director and producer rooted in the independent film world, but with increasing forays into Hollywood. She's one of the key creative forces behind the TV series, the girlfriend experience, and you might also have seen her performances in recent studio thrillers like Alien Covenant and Pet cemetery a role that helped her finance this much lower budget horror movie. Depending on your persuasion, don't like she dies tomorrow might not sound like ideal pandemic viewing but I think one of the great virtues of the horror genre is that it can put our own fears into perspective. There can be enormous value in confronting our feelings of dread had on and feeling a sense of kinship with characters who are confronting there's to. Sign it's doesn't provide easy answers. She also doesn't tell us if her characters worries are justified. She closes the movie on a note, picked between serenity and alarm leaving us to wonder if the end is as near as it seems or tomorrow might, in fact, be another day.

"Largest tech companies are due to appear before Ah House Judiciary subcommittee on Anna trusted to answer questions about whether they have become and a competitive and won't return. Now to Emily Chang. She is anchor of Bloomberg Tech. We were rudely interrupted before I'm delighted you could be back with us, Emily So let's talk about this. We're talking about the four cos they're all big. They're all tech, but they're actually quite different company. One from the other. How can there be a through line from this investigation on these four different companies? Absolutely, And that's a very good point, David, Each of these CEOs of each of these four companies could have their own multi day hearing. The issues are very different with Facebook. It's misinformation and advertising with Google is advertising and search, which, with Apple, it is The APP store with Amazon. It is how these companies treat third party sellers. Jeff Bezos is somebody that we're really going to be watching here, the CEO of Amazon and also the richest person in the world because he's never testified before Congress before, and there are a lot of people who want to hear what he has to say in his prepared remarks, which were also a little bit different. From the rest. He talked about how his parents invested in Amazon in the early days. A typical and true American success story. He's also the owner of The Washington Post says that that could bring out a little more idolatry from the lawmakers. We don't know, but it's definitely going to be interesting to see how these lawmakers throughout their questions because they could basically ask anyone Anything at any time. So there's a chance that this could be all over the map, especially given that this is a virtual hearing. You're gonna have some of the lawmakers in the room. The hearing has been delayed because they're basically cleaning up from the last hearing. You've got staffers inside now washing it down. But all of the CEOs will be calling in virtually So
Tech's four biggest companies are going on trial
"Important tech hearings up on Capitol Hill, where the CEOs the four largest tech companies are due to appear before Ah House Judiciary subcommittee on Anna trusted to answer questions about whether they have become and a competitive and won't return. Now to Emily Chang. She is anchor of Bloomberg Tech. We were rudely interrupted before I'm delighted you could be back with us, Emily So let's talk about this.

The hearing has been delayed because they're basically cleaning up from the last hearing. You've got staffers inside now washing it down. But all of the CEOs will be calling in virtually So your comments suggest there is another person not in the room who may be quite important that is Donald J. Trump the president, United States He's not been shy in his criticism of some of these tech companies at all. What is the potential influence of the president here? Absolutely. And David we actually just in the last half hour, So got another tweet from the president focused on Big tech, the president tweeting. If Congress doesn't bring fairness to Big Tech, which they should have done years ago, I will do it myself with executive orders in Washington. It has been all talk and no action for years and the people of our country are sick. And tired of it. Of course, the president tweets themselves have been the subject of much controversy, especially how Facebook in particular has handled his tweets. The one about looters and shooters threatening violence on the American people threatening violence on protesters in Washington, D. C. Facebook has made the decision to let those posts stand unflagging not behind. A warning of any kind, and that has kicked off. Ah lot of controversy. Facebook is in the middle of an ad boycott. Right now, you've got massive advertisers who have pulled their advertising from Facebook for the month of July and some for the foreseeable future. So you can expect Facebook to be the subject and Mark Zuckerberg in particular, probably of the most iron from these lawmakers. Lots of concern. About anti conservative bias on the right and also concerns from Democrats as well. You've seen Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential candidate, also taking aim at Facebook, and in fact, President Trump has already used his executive powers to sign an executive order asking The FCC to take a look at old laws that give companies like Facebook and Google and Twitter protection from liability over the content that those users users post so we could expect that to be a really hot button issue today. Well, it's a fascinating point. This is Washington where the rules as we both know are different, but this is the antitrust subcommittee, the House Judiciary Committee. Theoretically, they're supposed to do with competition issues. Not the substance of speech. And yet I wonder whether it would be a fair amount of questions that have nothing to do with that. I trust her competition at all it has to do with political bias. Absolutely. And look, I've talked to all of the company's going into this. They're expecting questions to be all over the map. It is not all going to fall under the antitrust umbrella, and we know that at some of these lawmakers, we're gonna have sort of personal bones to pick with these companies whether or not one of their posts personally was flagged. Or not, And it's been interesting hearing from the critics as well. You've got CEOs of other big tech companies like the CEO of Spotify, the CEO of Epic games and maker of Fortnight. I've spoken to these folks in the last couple of weeks in the last couple of months, and they've been speaking out about thes companies saying that Apple, for example. Is American, Apple and Google are a duopoly. You've heard a lot of criticism going into this about how these companies run their businesses, and that's what these lawmakers have been hearing now on. The other side of these four companies have massive lobbying operations that they've turned over. One source told me voluminous amounts of documents, millions and millions of pages. Stating their case stating their side to make sure that these lawmakers are informed and we should hope that these lawmakers are going into this with with some level of the right information you know in the past. When Mark Zuckerberg, for example, testified before Congress for the first time, some lawmakers didn't understand how Facebook's business model actually worked. So we'll be watching to see whether or not these lawmakers actually understand the businesses and the points That they want to make. It was a famous exchange. How do you make your money If you don't charge for, he said, Well, we sell advertising Senator. That was quite an exchange. Emily. Thank you so very much Want to treat you have you with us? That's Bloomberg technology anchor Emily Chang, and we're going to bring you the hearing when it finally gets underway on Capitol Hill. Meanwhile,
Big Tech CEOs testify before House Judiciary antitrust subcommittee
"For some of the biggest tech companies in the world are speaking before Congress as the House Judiciary subcommittee on antitrust finishes his yearlong investigation of big tech Seen that executive editor Roger Chang. One of the big questions for Facebook is whether or not they'll spin off big businesses like Instagram or WhatsApp. There've been a lot of complaints about whether or not this company is too powerful. Facebook obviously doesn't want to do that. So we'll see how Zuckerberg respond to these questions and how he pivots away from that particular conversation. Yeah, that's him. The leader of Facebook will be there. Also, the leaders of Amazon, Google and Apple will be in attendance
Apple and Google are fighting over the future of the web
"Apple, Google, or who the biggest players in technology and fundamentally different ways of seeing where the Internet is going, and whoever wins out in this big conflict may have a huge impact on how we experienced the web broader. Chang and this is your charge. To break this down is see nets, reporter and resident giant Brain Stephen Shanklin welcome shank high, so Google and apple been rivals on many different levels for for many years. At what is this new battlefront? Look like well. This is basically a disagreement or a difference of opinion about where the web should go, and what the right balance is between Web APPS that run on the web in native APPs deployed into all the programming interfaces you'll see on an iphone or on windows or on Android so it's web versus native. Tunnel little bit about their respective positions. What's really informing? Why they're taking the positions, they are well. Google was born on the web and it is a huge fan of the web, and it's chrome. Browser dominates usage of the web so as you might expect. It's really a big fan of the web improving what the web can do. Make it as interactive as possible. Make It. As easy as possible to build advanced Web APPs that can do a lot of different things, basically Web APPs that powerful is native APPs apple on the other hand. It's obviously hugely successful with its iphone. In one of the reasons that's been successful as all the native APPs that run on the iphone and of course, apple gets a lot of money, not just from selling iphones, but also from taking its cut of. The fees that developers have to pay. Somebody buys something through Apple's APPs store, so apple is not. It doesn't disliked the web, but it has a bigger affinity for native APPs than Google does yes. Oh I use apps obviously on my phone. I browse the Internet to. Why should I care about this dispute? What really this boils down to sort of a difference of philosophy? Are you more of a fan of an open computing platform like the web or you more a fan of native APPs so that? That openness has a lot of advantages. If you decide to dump your windows laptop and moved to an IPAD, then that's going to be easier if the web is really at the center of your experience. If you're somebody who uses a lot of native APPS, you might like those on your iphone, but that might make it hard to switch to Android, because you're kind of walked into the apple iphone APPs on the other hand. Native APPs often are a lot more responsive a lot more powerful so. Baked often offering a better user experience, so it's about a difference in philosophy. What's more important to you? Each side certainly has its advantages and disadvantages. Yeah, one one way Google's trying China address this with their Web APPs. Is Something called progressive? Web APPs, which which are more fully featured talk about that. What what are what are they look like? And would we actually see some these progressive web? APPS pop up. Are here today Google? Helped coined the term and its aggressively pushing a bunch of technology that makes Progressive Web APPs better PWA's. You'll see that a lot in a tech circles, so yes as you said it's basically more of a packaged web. APP So right now you typically use your browser open A website do what you need to do on the website. If you're using progressive web APP, you might prompt that says hey. Do you want to save this to your home screen? Do you WanNa? Say this year start menu, and then you can save that as an APP you commend launched later without having to go through the browser, their wad of different features in Progressive Web. APPS that make them work faster. Make them work offline and generally improve the experience compared to a native APP. These are gradually. Increasing in power utility, there are a lot of companies like Uber in twitter and starbucks that have that liked them and have had pretty good success with them, so they're definitely increasing in importance I guess you can say it's basically the latest phase in improving the web web used to be this foundation for static documents studied with hyper links, and it got gradually more and more Interactive Progressive Web APPs the latest vanguard of that interactivity. Fred to a you set up. Up these two sides pretty nicely. What which side has more support backing? It depends on who you're asking about so web developers love power. They love features, and they love chrome, so the web developers no question they really like Google way of thinking in a lot of them. Don't like apples. Speed of improving its safari browser one of the big issues is that on iphones and IPADS? Safari is obviously not just the default browser, but also even if you're using chrome. It's apple's safari technology, so apple really controls. What's what goes on on an IPHONE or an IPAD? So the web developers really bristle about that. If you're talking about the average user Heidel really think most people know the difference mostly at this stage. If you're developing markets, places that don't have a many powerful devices, don't have very fast networks often, the web has a lot more urban advantage sometimes wetbacks to be much smaller and faster and easier to use than a native where you have to go through an APP store. Download a big head, the APP yet in. Terms of WHO's likely to win. Is there any kind of indication or still still too early I? Don't think either side is going to vanquish the other. I think the web is pretty healthy in is going to continue to be so I think native. APPS are not going to die, even for example, twitter is a fan, but if you load the twitter mobile, APP in some places, it'll say hey, have you? You tried our twitter native APP so it's not it's not really clear that one side of the other is going to actually prevail what the big question is which way it's going to tilt in the future and bats kind of uncertain what it looks to me at this stage is that the web developers and some people actually use the web like these advanced features, and there's pressure on apple two in. The features it builds into safari. Safaris team is growing. Apple has been adding some of these features. If not always as fast as Google would like also, there are a lot of allies that Google has like Intel and Microsoft, which is a very big powerful. Ally that are pushing this web direction so I think the web will steadily get more powerful, but native apps are certainly not going away. Okay, let me in the way you describe it with between absent browsers I think for a lot of folks. I tend to use more APPs on my phone. The expect you said the experiences, a bit more fully fleshed out likewise when I'm on my computer, I tend to use my browser a lot more rather than apps unless there's really specific program like. Is it just? Is it a matter of? Being a phone, the desktop experience, or has that plane the argument? There's definitely a difference between what happens on your laptop in what happens on your phone browsing on your phone? Even though apple actually helped pioneer mobile browsers with the first iphone way back in two thousand seven. It still is not as good as a native APP generally speaking. So that initial disadvantage I think really has persisted. A lot of people were trained to look for APPS in the APP store, not go to mobile websites that were broken or didn't work well or limited or just said for example you go to the yelp website, it says install the YELP APP. So you know there are a lot of disincentives to using the mobile web. Google's trying to reduce those, but there's still a huge gap then when you compare it to a laptop where a lot of people can just live in a web browser. Maybe they need photoshop or Microsoft Word or some other. Video or photo editor running on their laptop, but mostly the web is how a lot of us can get worked on the laptop. That dynamic I think. It's changing I think the web is getting more powerful on phones, but it's not clear to me that it's getting so much more powerful that it's really going to be the primary way we interact on our phones. I think especially for the APPS that you use a lot one to ten twenty times a day. Those are probably going to be native APPS for most people. I'm just trying to get a sense for our listeners. What what this actually means, if one side wins like what what is Apple's vision of the future look like versus Google's vision with feature well I think way it. Shakes out, it's not so much that one side of the other is going to win, it's that it's going to tilt one way or the other and I think in the apple do more priority on native apps spend more time in walled gardens silos I'm not sure what the right term is exactly, but basically more time on one companies platform where it's harder to switch out of that email service in that music streaming service in. In that collection of APPs The web vision. It's a bit more open loosey-goosey. You might have to do more vetting yourself. Is this service worth my money? Is this email service safe to use? So it's there's less hand holding, but it's more open so kind of a different one is one is arguably easier on the customer, but if you do want to make changes or control your destiny, it gets a bit harder. Shack this is the first in a series looking at this issue. What what else you have on tap this week are also gonna be looking at some of these security. Implications of Web APPs the more power you give to the web, the more the attack surface gets bigger, the more ways there are for a hackers to attack your browser and your entire phone and laptop, and we're going to be looking specifically at twitter, which as a pretty interesting story about why it made the choices it did. Did with its own web APP, so it's sort of a a look at how it sees the world. Obviously, twitter is a pretty important application right now as a native APP and web APP. We thought there'd be interesting example to look into their decision. Great thanks for joining me.

T-Mobile CEO on fighting the scourge of robocalls
"Mobile's event was all about fighting scan and robocalls. We've got CEO Mike Seaver to talk about it. Rod Chang, and this is your daily charge. Carrier, events are generally when you attack. The big annoyances are wireless service. So what are you addressing with today's news? We call them pain points and we've done this sixteen times before. Can you believe that and we're taking on today? One of the biggest pain points ever in this industry, which is Robo calls and scams, an unwanted calls and I'll tell you what this this is huge. This is the number one complaint to the FCC Can you believe about eleven? percent of calls on our traffic were blocked by our technology just last week. I mean this massive fifty. Eight Billion Robo calls were placed last year in two thousand nineteen. That's eighteen hundred. A second and people are being robbed. robbed the these are crimes. They're being talked out of their money. Ten billion dollars estimated lost last year from this and it's getting worse. I mean this is just awful, but this is the way criminals are. They're preying on people during this pandemic because we've got fears, people are losing jobs. They're looking for jobs. They're interested in their stimulus checks and other things and criminals are preying on all that, and so it's gone up and up and up through the pandemic, and it just has to stop, so we're launching this major initiative today that we hope like the rest of our own carrier moves in the past, the rest of the industry follow suit, and we can really make progress against. Essentially these criminal elements that want to steal from tens of millions of people, and so let's let's dive into it Scam Shield. What is it? What? What are some of these other programs that you are offering today? Well, it's a comprehensive left to right solution. Because one of the things we've learned is that it's this issue is too big and too complicated to solve with any one thing. At the centerpiece of it is scam, idea and scam block our breakthrough technologies that are network driven. Hey, I driven to identify calls and block them, and we're making them better already just in the last three years. We've blocked. We've blocked or identified a scam, likely twenty five billion calls, and so we've got a head start on this, but the thing about it is. This has gotta be. Be Thrust into the public consciousness and people need to start participating in order for us to take it to the next level. You ever get those calls those scams, and then you go into your phone and you block them on your phone. The truth is that doesn't do much good now with the Scam Shield. You'll be able to go into our APP and with one touch block. Block that call or essentially report it to us, because it's not just the ten digits they called with. Because as you know, they randomized those they call with new numbers every time that tells us to investigate the source of that call, and so with the feedback loop from tens of millions of customers using scam shield, our AI driven network technologies will get better and better and better. Better at identifying and blocking these calls for you and already we're thirty percent better than anybody else in the industry. So this is just taking it all to the next level, so let me let me stop you there just just to get some clarification because I know some of the stuff the other carries off horizon. You know. Todd touted the fact that they've stopped six billion calls. Fundamentally you all use a similar system that's one that's mandated by the FCC to be rolled out by the end of next year or sometime next year. So what is different about this? In what what? What is new exactly in terms of some of these I know some of these services like the caller ID feature had been offered in the past. So what is new? What is different from the rest of the industry? Well, let's first talk about scam. ID and scan block. What's different is that ours is network based, and it's for everyone on the network literally. Literally speaking, and so it doesn't rely on a certain rate plan or or APP or having something installed or paying for a feature, which is exactly what verizon offers which is seven dollars and ninety nine cents. A month seven nine hundred dollars a year just about in order on their most popular plans in order to get the best levels of protection. Protection which aren't as as much as we're offering today for free, and and honestly as an industry. We need to do better than that. We you know this is. This is an issue that the carriers are helping to bring to customers. I mean their own networks are bringing you these scams and yet they're profiting from technology. That might be proposed to stop their. Their own technology for bringing you these scams that's crazy and so part of what we do with on carrier moves as we call out industry practices, sometimes practices that we've participated in the past and said look, this is a pain point, and it's gotTa Stop So these technologies at T. mobile or not just better because they're network based and don't rely on Hap. But they're free, and we're not going to charge them. Including as you mentioned caller ID, which is now free, t mobile. And as you mentioned being made better, that industry standard technology talked about stir shaken is basically a pool database of being able to see not only the name of a caller which is important if you have caller ID, which is free now, but that it's a verified mobile user and not a call center, or a robot calling you, and that's really important information for you in order to know, you can safely answer the phone.

China becomes first economy to grow since virus pandemic
"By 1.6% in the first half of this year, But officials say in the second quarter of the year, the Chinese economy has gradually overcome the worst of the pandemic. NPR's Amy Chang reports from Beijing The same day. China's top epidemiologist claims that the domestic transmission of covert 19 is back under control again. Latest official data show that the country's second quarter GDP bounced back to a 3.2% increase. This is the weakest expansion on record. But nearly three months ago, China reported a 6.8% GDP contraction, the first ever decline since at least 1992. The rebound overtook analyst expectations and signal that the world's second largest economy is slowly recovering. Expert point out that government stimulus in the industrial sector is the main driver behind the quarter's growth. Consumer spending posted a weaker performance as people are still cautious about outings. Movie theaters, among other entertainment venues remain closed for fear of large scale infection.

Peacock is live: Heres everything you need to know
"He caught. The last of the big streaming services has finally launched nationwide, but at joint a crowded room, streaming services, including busy, plus and that Blix. So how does this stack up? I'm Roger, Chang into your daily charge. Beckley I don't have to answer that question because with me. Is Our media expert, John? Salzman and software services. Reviewer Alison. Danisco, welcome both you. Thanks all right so John with you. He is live after having launched in Beta mode to caucus users a couple months ago, so so give us a land now. What is the streaming wards landscape? Look like this is basically the last of the big new services to land at least as far as we know. We had apple and Disney plus come in November than we had depending if you consider it bigger. Bigger not clubby came in April followed by Hbo Max in May, and now finally we have peacock, and it's a little bit different than the rest of those, because it not only is, it has big budget originals big back catalog, like most of those other services do, but it's also doing some other things that are digging a little bit when the others I it has. It's going to have live news. Life sports other sorts of news and sports replays highlights that kind of thing and crucially has a free tear at as a tier with advertising we can watch about two thirds of the catalog just by signing up and not paying anything there are ways you can take out the ads and unlock the full catalogue if you WanNa pay, but having that sort of on ramp that free just sign up and start watching thing. It's something that these other big services in the streets haven't tried yet. Yeah, I would just sort of generally speaking. Have we talked about the free cheering a bit but? In terms of these other players out there have any cover merged as must have service to rebel Netflix's certainly a streaming service, the new streaming service that's landed with the biggest slash by far is Disney plus. One media analyst when it launched last year there was one media analyst and widely followed one who called it one of the greatest product launches of all time. To give you a sense. Track Google search trends around these launch dates, and the Google search trends for Netflix are a good baseline. You know it's established. It's always very popular as a search gives you a good baseline of how other services stack up and people, search addressed most of these other services. They haven't crossed the level of net search interest, even on launch days, whereas Disney plus like quadrupled the amount of Netflix interests on its launch day now it's come down since then, but among these new services Disney is the one to beats, and nobody has even come close so far. Are also you've been testing out the service. How has the experience on Peacock Ben? Overall I've been having a really positive experience with peacock so far to be honest. I wasn't expecting all that much. Since we do already have Sumani streaming services, but the fact that it has this free tier is John mentioned where you can still watch. Tons of movies and TV shows with ADS does make it stand out from competitors like Netflix and Hulu it gives you something for free that similar to say a Pluto TV or a to B, but with this premium streaming. Streaming service interface, so it looks really good, and you also have the opportunity to upgrade if you want to. It's pretty easy to navigate. It has a few quirks, and there are some features that are still missing but overall. It's a solid free surface at launch. If you don't mind watching those ads in terms of that that user experience that the navigation the experience itself. How does it stack up against DISAPP- loss or Netflix's or some other more Polish premium services so in. In my mind, peacock isn't quite trying to be a Netflix or Hulu or HBO Max. It has a similar tile layout, and you can browse things by TV shows and movies and get recommendations, but it's kind of doing something different, and it's probably not going to replace any of those others for you, but it's something you can get for free to have more options. It reminds me a little bit of Amazon prime video in a way like on that one you can get. Get, a lot of shows and movies included as part of your prime subscription, but you'll find others mixed in that. You do have to pay for so on peacock. You'll find some shows with a little purple feather in the corner, which means you have to upgrade premium to watch them, but they're so plenty of free options to. And since we're in this time of economic uncertainty, you know free services a welcome option, even if you don't watch it every single day, right? Joan. Beyond this free tier is there anything else about peacock that makes stand out, or the folks should know about? Yeah, definitely, the frontier is obviously the first thing that people are going to encounter when they try to sign up and they realize they don't have to provide any sort of payment information. Start watching. But beyond that you know. Being in the pandemic, there's a lot of things that peacock wanted to have available right now for its launch that aren't a manifest really until next year or later, for example, the entire reason that it's launching right now in the middle of July is that originally peacock witches, NBC's streaming service thought they'd be able to piggyback on all the interest in the Olympics. That should be happening right now. Is the broadcasting partner for the Olympics in the United States, and so of course everyone remembers every Olympic season how there's just like blanket coverage on NBC. All of NBC's other cable channels. But because we don't have that until next year, that's a huge driver to get people interested and knowledgeable that that the service exists. That just doesn't exist right now. Also their originals. They have nine original series at launch, but just like everybody else all their production of new content. At least any live action content had to be suspended in March, and so they don't have as much in their pipeline. That's going to be ready to release win. They had hoped to release it as have if we weren't in this situation where everybody's lockdown the also could you break down the? Tiers, obviously, there's the free cheer that's at basement. What are you getting with those I? Think there's two different paid tears. He kinda run through them. And you actually get sure so in the free tear you get thirteen thousand hours of TV shows, Movies News Life Sports. Some of the biggest name shows you'll find. There are and Recreation, Thirty Rock, law and order. Order Svu but you know. Some of those are also currently on Netflix and Hulu to so there's some confusion there potentially, and you also know that the office won't be coming to peacock until January when it's calm when his contract with Netflix runs out, but in the meantime you'll also find current episodes of NBC shows one week later on that free tier. In terms of movies, you've got some big slightly older hits like Jurassic Park the Bourne identity, the Matrix and also newer kind of Oscar Z. ones like phantom thread and tally, and so for something. That's free. You'll probably find something. You WanNa Watch, but then you'll also find these two paid tears. One is five dollars a month which gives you access to the full Peacock Library which is about twenty thousand hours of TV, and movies, but you'll still see ads on that one. If you WANNA GO AD free. It costs ten dollars a month and you'll get still get that full libraries well. A few things you'll find on the premium tears, but not the free tier are all of the episodes of peacock originals, the major one launch being brave new world, and you'll also find more new movies and also next day access to new episodes of current. NBC shows one interesting thing that we haven't really seen before is that you'll get early access to some shows like late night with Seth Meyers and the tonight show. Show with Jimmy Fallon the night that they air, so you can watch them at eight PM instead of eleven thirty pm, but that would actually start until those shows are back in the studio and not running from home during the pandemic. Okay We've talked about this before, but they're just too many strips out there. They're all asking for money. Yes, peacock has a free tier, but there's clearly they want people to. Upgrade to these premium tears. How does market support so may services Comey Services? Can a household actually afford to pay for so from the experts that I've talked to and the research that they've been doing? It seems like there's a couple of interesting things going on one is that the total number of streaming services that people are subscribed to and are trying is going up now. That's partially because in the. The pandemic so many entertainment choices that we normally would that normally would keep us from streaming aren't happening right now, and we're all locked up in our homes, and so it's the primary way other than regular TV. Your needs that you would entertain yourself when you're stuck at home anyway, that's to do with it, but even before the pandemic. We were starting to see that all. This wave of new services what starting to tap higher, the amount of services people were trying and also subscribing to. But what we've found in the pandemic from the research that I've seen as that people are also much more willing to cancel subscriptions so. It's mostly price sensitivity factor as you know. Jobless numbers are soaring, and as people are reconsidering howl. They dedicate their money every month. Once they hit the point where a free trial ends or this ends. They're more willing to quit. Because they become more educated on other options that don't require payment that conserve their entertainment needs, you know. Alison, she mentioned to be There's other ones like that. That are free services that peacock sort of straddles the line with people are realizing that they have those options to if they don't WanNa, keep paying
'Palm Springs' Romantic Comedy Is A Total Winner For The Lockdown Era
"Are film critic Justin. Chang says it could be an especially good time to watch palm springs, a romantic comedy about two people forced to repeat the same day. Over and over again it stars Andy Sandberg, and Kristen, Milly Odi it streaming on Hulu and playing in some drive in theaters around the country. Palm Springs a hot ticket at this year's Sundance Film Festival one of the last public events to take place before the movie industry shutdown. I didn't see it there, but having caught up with it months later at home I can't help but feel as though this breezily entertaining movie. Please a little differently in the era of covid nineteen. It's a comedy. About is the LATIAN repetition which might not sound too appealing at a time when many of us are also leading lives of isolation and repetition. But don't let that dissuade you. This first feature directed by Max barbeque cow, and written by Andy Sierra turns out to be a total winner, Sharp, funny, and even profound in a sneakily offhand way. The story is a riff on that Herald Ramos Classic Groundhog Day in which Bill Murray had to keep replaying the same day until he learned to become a selfless person, but palm springs is trying to push that message. It knows that just getting through life with your dignity intact can be hard enough. That's certainly true for Sarah played by Kristen me not who's serving as maid of honor in her sister's wedding in the California desert town of Palm Springs. S Sarah Drinks too much and stumbles her way through the reception. She finds herself intrigued by one of the Guests Niles played by Andy, Sandberg. Niles is kind of a goofball, but also manages to work the room with disarming ease. It's almost as if he's been through this event before and knows everything that's going to happen. Sarah finds out why when she follows him that night into a mysterious cave out in the desert. Within seconds she's waking up the next morning only to find that. It's actually the same morning as before the morning of the wedding. Time has reset itself. In a panic Sarah Trucks Down Niles at the hotel where they're staying. He explains that when she entered the cave, she made a big mistake because he followed me. What's going on? I tried to stop. But, what is this? When is this? Yeah. About that so. This is today. Today is yesterday and tomorrow is also today. It's one of. Infinite time loop situations you might have heard about. That I might have heard about. There's been a lot of those infinite time loop situations in recent movies and TV. Some of them excellent like the Tom. Cruise Action Thriller Edge of tomorrow in the NETFLIX's mystery series. Russian doll. The pop savvy makers of Palm Springs clearly no those stories and suspect that you might know them to. As a result, they're able to jettison a lot of the usual exposition about how this world works and simply cut to the chase. Sarah is eager to bust out of the time loop but Niles. WHO's been stuck here for ages tries to dissuade her. Virtuous acts won't work. Suicide won't work although that doesn't Stop Sarah driving straight into the path of an oncoming truck just to see what happens. Eventually Niles persuades her to stop fighting the space time continuum, and just enjoy their time together, and so she does with the threat of permanent removed. These two misfits are suddenly free to embrace the craziness of every moment. Sometimes, they blow off the wedding to go on long desert drives and hang out in bars. Sometimes they stick around for the wedding, so they can play tricks on the guests. WHO WON'T REMEMBER ANYTHING ANYWAY? The guests are played by fine actors. Including Peter Gallagher June squibb and Meredith Hagner. J. K. Simmons also gives a terrific wildcard performance as a guy who POPs up at the wedding on Sundays, but not others for reasons that the story will soon make amusingly clear. As fiendishly clever, as it is on the surface, palm springs has a pretty straightforward takeaway, since life can sometimes be pointless and tedious whether you're stuck in a time loop or not, you might as well spend it with someone you love. It's pretty good advice. Even Still Sarah doesn't know how much longer she can stand being trapped in this desert purgatory, especially since Niles seem so lazily resigned as fate. I won't give away whether they succeed in escaping or not I will say that the movie doesn't entirely avoid a tired gender dynamic in which a smart determined woman has to expend a lot of emotional and mental energy, and just to get her boyfriend to WanNa move forward. But I love the way the actors conspired subvert that Dynamic Sandberg isn't that's Hilarious as he was in the Music Biz? Satire pop star never stopped never stopping, but he does have the whole. Doofus slacker routine down Pat. But, he's eclipsed by Milly Ot, a versatile performer who won a grammy for the Broadway musical once, and who can turn from madcap comedy to breathtaking emotion on a dime. I'd watch her. Any Day.

"Husband. We're all human. We all are fallible. We all make mistakes. and. It's tough to figure out logistics for funeral right now in this Kobe world and to do social distancing and. It's something that unfortunately way, too. Many people have had to deal with. The past four months and my heart goes out to all the families. My heart goes out to all the families that have lost someone to cancer. It's a horrible thing. My Dad lived a very full life. He. He did a lot. That's for sure and he was beloved. and. He died bile duct cancer. And he lived the longer than the. Doctor thought that he would. And I'll tell you my one regret and this is the main reason why I wanted to do this podcast. I hope that if you have a similar kind of relationship with your parents. And as difficult as it may be, and there were certainly moments in my life where I thought I. Don't know if they can never repair this. I asked that you try to think about what it was like to be. Your parents to be in their shoes not to justify their actions. But to learn that it's the responsibility of you to be able to forgive them, and to be the bigger person, and to show them that all that they sacrificed produced a child that. took all of their sort of who they. and. You became a better person the last thing they ever wanted us to come to. This country is to not be better. They sacrificed so much. My Dad's sacrificed. A God awful amount to provide, and that's the one thing he knew. and. I encourage you to do something that I. Didn't do enough of is. Tell your parents I. Love You. That's a word that was rarely used with my dad. because. He rarely sat it. Is just never happened. I mean there's two things he never said. I love you and. Smiling in a photo just never happened man very few words and. You know he knew how to have a good time when it was on the golf course with his friends, and he could be himself, but when it came to families, it was like dyslexia for him. In I don't think we have to inherit that at least I, don't. And I wish that I was able to tell my dad that I loved him more, and that I accept him for all the good and the bad, because he provided all these opportunities for his family for me, and it's my job in my responsibility to be better. Both as a person in how I live, and as I am as a father now to my own son and. I can't imagine how hard that must be for a lot of us or a lot of you particularly anyone. But this idea of showing and emoting love to your parents. In a way that from a Western perspective, it is just so counterintuitive, and if you have parents that came to this country in the sixties and Seventies. I think you should connect with them and try to talk to them. and. You know it's not just about talking about black lives matters, and maybe more than likely. They're conservative viewpoints in their desire to opole the model minority..

It was a warehouse, but a warehouse that was incredibly hard to find. And he built a golf business that way which was very spartan, and it's taken me several years to realize that I spent so much time the fucking Gulf story. It's certainly left a giant impressionist who I would operate my own restaurants. And stripped away all the bullshit, and I try to strip away all the bullshit in dining and you know one of those days when? I worked there when I wasn't playing golf I was working there.

This old white guy came in trying to buy Golf Clubs and my dad office, and this guy was looking at the golf clubs on the on the wall, and he was like Joe, Chang and my dad stopped in his tracks, and I'm looking at this entire interaction and I'm like Oh. My God I've never seen my dad react that way before like he's talking to his boss. You Know My dad was the boss. I've never seen him sort of pay respect to anyone. That wasn't his older sisters or brothers in an honorific Korean way. And I don't know exactly what they said. But I saw my dad just sort of. Shake his hand, the guy didn't by any golf clubs time, and he walked out, and my dad started a well up in tears and I don't know if I asked anything and my dad told me he was like that was my old boss at the restaurant and I, later found out that guy. Sold the restaurant to my dad in the Washington DC area and I don't know again the backstory behind that. But that guy changed my dad's life I giving him an opportunity, and it's something that I've never forgotten because it changes life forever. And this guy gave a Korean immigrant a chance to operate his own business. And that was something I've never forgotten, and it's one of the reasons why.

He had a restaurant in the National Press Club and then something else i. don't remember what. and. He wasn't the painting business for a year, and then he sold that, and that's how we got in golf business. But through it all. You know. My Dad was. Joe Chang Joseph Jin Pill Chang..

"Blood. I'm talking to a fucking preacher and I've never joined a cult I've never been willing to. I've never wanted to join a cult. I've worked in kitchens though and there's something inexplicable that you try to communicate people and you don't you're not proselytizing you're not trying to preach but the difference between and Wiley and the people you and I admire and an and pretenders is that it's not lip service. I think he really really really deep down. And I'm saying this to you and I know at one affect your belief because I think it's it's true intrinsic where you and I talk on ugly delicious. We're talking about what food can do. I think that deep down most people leave. It can't do much. It's something you put in your mouth and a tastes good or doesn't and you eat it and it turns into Shit. I think that you really believe that. You can change people's minds with food that you can make a difference with food that if you put everything you have in in you into nourishing somebody else that you can say things with your food that you can't say with your mouth one hundred percent. Of course I believe that. But that's right there. You think that other people do as they don't think that's like a given. It's not it's absolutely not. I'm to listen. I can understand why people may not believe that for example. There's people that aren't moved by our or they're not my music and I always think about Cameron Crowe and almost famous when a lot of people think you know Kate Hudson's role is a little bit like T- ditsy potentially no they love music with all their life and I get that and that's exactly the different the difference with me as I can see the absurdity of of this business and the stupidity of it and simultaneous would be part of the good and the bad and you know like I can see that like a movie as bad as burnt which is in some ways. Good is for me when I saw him. Go Bradley Cooper get sabotage by Michelle? Which again should be commended? Because Michelle did the right thing again. Let a lot of people would be like. That's terrible like Fuck Michelle's he know. Michelle's the fucking here on this fucking movie. Bradley Cooper is a horrible mother fucker in this movie and should have gotten beaten the just never given another opportunity. Michelle should be an every opportunity. The World Michelle became one of the best cooks John Lewis. Kitchen and Mike didn't have his own kitchen and got sabotage. No no no no. That shouldn't have happened. And he did the right thing by getting sabotage but when Adam Jones finds out that like Oh my God that's the Michelin died and my life is ruined i. I was basically wasted. Everyone's time and I'm I am horrible person. And he falls off the wagon. You know we've talked about this before you know like after that Nishi Review felt that way. I mean like you know like grace's right around the corner like I'm talking about this like I think that if I didn't have grace in my life at that time I think something really bad could have happened in like this forty eight hours and that was unequivocally something that's take me a long time to look back at and be like it's not that important. It's not that important in. I can say that but I know that it is which is why when I watched that and I can see how stupid and how patently absurd it is to care about emission star when a chef takes their life right. Whether it's Bernard Oiseaux or the chef that took over for Freddie Zero Day and you know that I've talked to a lot of chefs about this when they've gotten a bad review. The first thing I always ask asking is are you okay. There's a chef that I know that was like he thought about jumping off a bridge and I'm just like this is the stories that need to be told but aren't told in the fact that a movie as bad as burn actually captured one moment accurately. And it's all bad except for these moments that actually should be spoken about. That's what I'm like. Fuck man you had an opportunity to really shed some light on a terrible subject. Because how could someone take something so seriously that they'd be willing to like dial? Yeah well that's the difference. I mean people like food and they love food. You can love food and not believe in it. Chang I mean listen you and I have known each other for ten years now and I'll follow you anywhere because I I see somebody in you. Who believes in what they're doing and I it doesn't see it as a vehicle to get. I don't know what the fuck I'm doing though. It doesn't matter if you don't know like I can sense when somebody doesn't believe in what they're talking about and that you know at Burns at its best is captured a couple of moments here and there when it's like this means a lot to somebody else's means a lot to my character. This means a lot to who this theoretical Personnaz. But there's no moment where I'm like. Oh you the director you the writer you the actor. Anybody believes in this thing. It's easy to believe in music. It's easy to believe in first responders firefighters paramedics doctors. It's easy to believe in military army service people and I do too. But it's harder to believe in what you can accomplish their food and Chang man like you and I have had a lot of a lot of conversations over the last decade and I there are moments where I know for a fact that you really believe what you're doing and you believe in the importance of it and I don't know like this isn't helpful to any movie directors out there who are trying to make a movie about food but No I mean I appreciate. What am I hear what you're saying but I'm always like food at its best is like at least the restaurant cooking. That can't happen ultimately. Food's not that important. It isn't other than getting your sustenance but ultimately it is what I love most about cooking. Is this in a professional kitchen? Besides the hijinks Tomfoolery. Which is why genuinely love professional kitchens? That's the total fucking buffoon. Who's the funniest person the room I love it? When some that light clicks on someone's head when that moment someone realizes like why cleaning? Why do I care about organizing? I can't even do anything like this. In my entire life of avoided organizing tire life. I've avoided cleaning. I've never cared about doing anything. Well Y- I do I care about cleaning. Well why do I care about organizing? Well why do I want to play this fish better? Why do I wanna make this just a tap it better? Why don't WanNa make the Pasta farce less loose? So it's better tomorrow because ultimately it's absurd you're gonNA eat it and you're gonNA shit it out right all of these jobs beautiful thing of existential absurdity into fucking food and it's it's very again. I think I was thinking like a Mandala by Buddhism. It's like why would you spend all this time to create the Sandcastle only to blow it away in a ceremony? It's so dumb but I think in that stupidity is wrapped in something. That's beautiful and I think it does in some ways capture the human spirit that I care about in the face of all adversity and logic and reason you're still going to move forward and try to make it right. Yeah and better yourself. And that's what I think at the very core what food can be in. A professional kitchen is bettering oneself. And you're not being motivated by a stock option. You're not being motivated by making more money. All of these things are making money now. Like all of these. Yes but I can't force you to get better. How do I create an environment where you're going to want to be better too? So that light clicks on on your own and be like wait. I can only make myself better. And that's a fucking beautiful thing and I would when that happens. That's the winning man. And when you do that that's what I was talking to the end of the movie where people are like wait. I've learned the Jetta away a little bit. It's not about me Bradley Cooper at the Anti like he's gone the dark ways and you know don't be reductive. Jeddah you know. I talk about this all his own. I think the thing that happens to the next level when you realize like oh. It's not about me it's about bettering everyone else. Yeah it's it's it's Hi Ruby out sat outside of right there. GimMe five minutes okay. I love you didn't do it. Okay you're starting to eat already. Okay all right there. I'll be right there. I'll be right there. I think that's Chang. I think that that's seen where Bradley Cooper's hotel room as a disaster and his kitchen is pristine that to me is yes real another real. You let everything fall. Apart for the sake of you're doing we'll let you go. You know what I think we should i. This is getting good now. I know this is. This is the so we talk about Chang. And it's I I mean I'm going to be honest. I'm tearing up just thinking about I. Keep on trying to achieve particular. What I'm saying the difference between the chefs I truly love and admire and everybody else. And it's that it's that moment of like you know like you in your early days at Momofuku. Orderliness keeping the absolutely highest standards at the restaurant was everything but your home life was I this. I don't know how to get his air conditioning unit into my winterson duct tape it with books. Like that's that's the difference. Okay Chang I don't know man. Well let's let's keep you know what let's continue this. I I actually think we should edit this and I think we have some actually really good..

"So what he tried to do was took your advice Joe House and he said I'm just GONNA turn them into movies a musician an aging country rocker. And I'M GONNA have lady Gaga Be Sienna Miller. I like this. Now you're talking. That's a real movie as that was released. Yeah and it's called Stars so so what this movie is this one? This movie is what burnt is is. If all of the things that happened in the stars born happened off camera and then we're explained in a voiceover and then Bradley Cooper was like and now you find me here and I'm going to try to start again like that. It just liked what we don't WANNA see this part. We Wanna see the cool part. That's right we miss all the cool part but I wanted to get a little bit in order because by notes going order on this. I want to go back to surf the very beginning. So from the beginning Chang. It takes place in horse if you haven't been to. This restaurant is one of the great great restaurants. New Orleans is Casa Meadows. I haven't been. I don't know if I'm pronounced. I didn't know it's a real. It's an amazing amazing and Casa mentos Casa Meadows and. It's one of my favorite spots. The last time I was in Orleans and it is a real bona fide. Always your shop now. I did my actual math. I can't believe this a million oysters and I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt. He's a shock a thousand dollars a day. I don't think that's possible. I do not think that's possible without developing severe carpal Tunnel Syndrome. And to three hundred would be a lot for one person to do day. I'm going to give him the benefit of say he's a prodigy of Oyster shucking Jones. I'm going to give them that. I'm gonNA give them that. I'm also going to give him the fact that he's going to work a thousand dollars a day and he's GonNa six days a week because he already said back in know we John. Luke was working twenty hours a day six days a week. So that makes six thousand oysters a week. Six Thousand Oysters. A week divided by million with the time of the week. So it's it's six point three hours a day to Shuck a thousand wasters with a math that I did. And it's actually accurate one hundred sixty six weeks at a thousand dollars a day at six days a week. That means three point two years at the best case near thirty seconds in order to write. That's thirty seconds like I'm giving the the reality is. It's probably five to six years. If you WANNA to do a million wasters I did you. Did you one better Chang. I think we all did the math on this. But here's the craziest part. 'cause you're right and you would know better than anybody in the world. A thousand oysters. A day is fucking banana man the last day so when we catch we catch Adam Jones. He's going to his job. He's got his little booklet where he keeps track of. All the he's done and this his last day of penance. He's GonNa hit one million today. I paused it. I looked at the screen. And I did the subtraction on that last day. He had three thousand three hundred four. And he's like maybe it's edited wrong but it looks like he's done before ten. Am walks out thirty three hundred oysters. You just don't that's just not possible. I just don't understand why that would happen. And that made me mad right off. The Bat was like this is not believable. And that's what saying. They're trying to make it believable. But it's not fucking believable. Just isn't I'm sorry there's no fucking way and I'm a really good fucking waste to Shekar. There's no way three thousand three hundred. A day is way too many big. That is free the shame of it for me. Is those oysters and him. Eating that oyster was probably the single. There's one other scene that we'll get to when we talk about the food but that was one a or one B of the most compelling moments that the whole thing are absolutely early and then there's this other element there where like he's supposed to be paying his dues right like he fucked it up. He's trying to pay his penance. And become a better man. Bhai shucking oysters. But then he he. Shucks number one million he slurps it down and then he walks out of his job no explanation. You know who did not rehabilitated. Huge denied your fucking role. Dude walk out of your job without bird one electric. What a prick I mean like. That's what I kept on saying throughout the movies. Like what fucking prick Irene. I couldn't believe it and like we go into the next that I have notes on. He's like she get the London and he just. How does he find this kid that he knows? That's making these lamb sandwiches. And then he tells them you're GonNa pay me to teach you how to cook and I'm GonNa live at your house like what a fucking asshole. What an what an arrogant French right like would you ever do that? Just go to some random person. Like I'm living with you now. Well the so he has during his crew assembly seen. He's going all over the place to find his his like bad ass cokes. Each has a different specialty. And I actually think the food porn in this part is pretty good. They're going through kind of the street food of London. It looks. It looks good on screen. I I think the food porn looks good. And of course he's like in these kind of like quote unquote ethnic restaurants little holes in the wall and he picks out the pace mother fucker to join his career. I can Scottish kid. Or something comes out and he. He gives them the speech. That's like Oh you like me. Would you work for free? Would you pay me to work for you just like this is this is gross? What is going on right now Yeah I it's it's pretty bad man and the whole thing is just like it's too clever by half. Every line of dialogue is too clever by Bennie. Crashes at the kids place and his girlfriend's Lily James Who's now like super famous who Lily James's still collins daughter. Oh my goodness. I didn't know that yeah. I think I'm right. I'm right am I right. She is slow Internet here. We'll just say it's true. Don't worry about it. Other religious. Edit this wikipedia piece look my right no It's fine it's fine. Everything's not sure everybody drink clorox shine flashlights in your mouth so staying at his place and they go in the Michelin fucking one star. You're amazing to start your like Obi-wan-kenobi Three-star Yoda like no that's sort of. I guess I could have. You had a really reduce it and be reductive. But here's my really like nitpicking of food on that scene. He makes them food number. One Who makes S. cargo? What kind of fucking Asshole S. cargo at someone's House that you're crashing at two? This is the line. He says he lives her. A recorder toast and says a picked up all the summer vegetables. Some vegetable peas. I'm pretty sure having lived in London before their spring coincides with the East Coast of America. Spring and peace is a May may ish type thing like no. He was wrong so Just like these are the things they're going to try to make it super accurate. Make you fucking accurate. And that's what again made me really upset. So I think at this point he has. We met Bradley Cooper. He's washed up. He's shuckers million oysters. He is the fast shocker. By a factor of one hundred X. He flies to London to start a restaurant and he we should mention he. He partners up. He partnered up with his old nature. D' was in love with homes in love with him who is in love with him. Played by the actor. Daniel Bruhl who is Zemo from the Captain America? Who Know about that. Here's my question for you guys. Here's my question for you guys. What country is this fucking character from? What is this accent? What accents supposed to be friendly supposed to be French? No He's not fucking freshly doesn't speak French at one point. Says I don't like my French is rusty. I don't speak French. Wow it sounds to me like a bad like English dialects like you know something from the countryside kind of thing. I think we should have got like a linguistic expert on here because this mother fuckers accent changes on every acid house. Let's let's just go back a little bit. If if you and me ever go split a Walker at Burger King Yeah and if I ever give you a speech that basically says like you don't know what cooking is this is peasant food you know Blah Blah Blah. Like you know the French food that you make is actually peasant food. And all this shit and start pontificating I want you to kick me in the balls with the hammer through enough but you got it. I promise I will a speech. I swear to God I would. If someone even said that to me I would get so violent. I think I know what I'd say. This is stick my head in the lion's den here. I'M GONNA stick my head in the lion's den here. There was a moment. Listen I I was three sheets to the wind when I watched this movie the first time. I'm half a bottle of GIN as we're talking about this right now put Chang. There're a couple moments in here. The lines are forced. They come out of context. But I was like they've Chang has said some me before. Let me let me ask you this. Why did Tony? The maitre d' have to be gay and in love with this. That helps the story anyhow. Dance the fucking.

"I wish that I had a better voice to do this. I think you're a good job. I'm ready to by State Farm Insurance Right now. I also think that the soundtrack of Hugo saying whatever he's saying in the background is really really helpful to yeah but like I really want. I really want on like I've been thinking I gotta get so much better at that. Like like a good neighbor state farm. Is there like I'm trying to work on his baritone? I'm basically auditioning to be the voice for the commercials like a good neighbor state farm. Is there get a quote or find an agent at State Farm Dot Com see? I'm getting there I'm getting getting there. We're we're we're GONNA do a mail bag. We've we have neglected the Ask Dave Account Long enough. It's time for us to sort of dig in and It's a hilarious. Mix Chang of like home cooking questions and please help me save my business questions. It really shows how all over the place we are with this show But yeah that's what we've got today a ton of questions for you to answer. Let's do this. Let the healing begin all right so our first question is an email from Derek. Be WHO says My wife has issued a moratorium on new cookbooks and equipment purchases during the Cova crisis so there goes my dreams of owning. Adobe how do I make that one pot fish or meat over rice dish Using a Dutch oven well? Dutch oven is great. Thing with a Dutch oven is it remains really. Well you WANNA make sure. It's not too big of a Dutch oven so if it's too big it's going to be hard to cook rice and I'm going to probably say fourteen inches maximum. But if you have one of those big oval things it may not work as well. I would just argue. Not Argue suggests that you want the smallest size Dutch oven because they cook rice incredibly. Well even argue that cast iron makes the best rice even better than the knobby in no pot so that would be my first thing. So I'm arguing. I'm not arguing. I don't know why I'm saying argument arguing so much today. People.

"So Do you think this movie's aged well though this movie in any way I do? It's funny that you brought up in the very beginning. The fact that this movie came to mind for you was the whole like restaurant franchise wars and Taco Bell. Being the only remaining restaurant in there is like a sort of interesting distort. Pick reality to that in what we're facing right now and so in that sense like yeah. I guess it's aged and like there's something to be said for it. I don't know I don't think so. I mean when I was a kid movie really defined what I thought satire was and shape that for me in a pretty intense way like I realize like and I thought it was so cool freshman year of high school I read brave new world and I was like Oh my God. That's what demolition man's about and like that was the first time something I'd read had ever shown up in a A movie and it was really meaningful. I I don't know Chang. I don't know if this is aged with the same relevance for me then the next question then is would you watch it again on cable. Well so I I. You are flipping through the channels. I saw it on cable. Would you watch it hell? Yeah I rented this thing on whatever service Google play maybe and I got. I think I got twenty six hours left on my rental. I'm going to watch this motherfucker or at least one more time album percent owner sent over to watch this again. I've watched this movie probably Twenty Five Times in my lifetime. Got Twenty Five. At least I. I'm with you. That's that's Times five times. Yeah that's incredible. I have no desire to watch this ever again. I think you're being aid just your age. I'm not being. Ages is not a good movie. It's like paste really weirdly. There's a bunch of things that don't hold up. I will say something that holds up very well. We addressed this earlier. But Holy Shit Young Sandra bullock unbelievable. Like wow seeing her in that in that. Very WEIRD GEM DRESS. It was definitely like wow okay. She had it. You know I agree. Isaac I guess I guess if you WanNa just slake minimize this movie that Chang and I have been talking about as a exploration of the dynamics of the Bologna then a rebuke on rebuke on the overlord state. I guess it's just Sandra bullock in her dress made of Martin. I guess that's all beans then. Okay I'll I we can. We can stop it here but let me ask you as the last note in question. I have is at one point in this movie for anybody. Who's still listening to this and trying to follow along at one point Sylvester. Stallone knits a sweater first. Sandra bullock. I'm not making that up. That's a real thing that happens in this movie. He hits it in one night and gives her this luscious red sweater and she smells it. She puts it up her face in in the inhales deeply of this sweater that sly stallone made and so the last question. I was wondering about for you guys is what do you think? Sylvester Stallone. Smells like guys. Let your car nor he probably. Wow I have never thought about house last alone smells in my life but yeah I'm sure. Yeah that makes sense. Yeah and for some reason coconut oil. Oh yeah copious amounts of coconut oil. That's all I got man. Did you think it was possible to dissect a movie like this as deeply as we've done do you think it's ever been done in the history of mankind? I mean how did this get made exists? And that's a podcast. That goes through bad movies. They did an episode on this. But they're talking about Nietzsche. No no they definitely don't Aura. Guys that's it. Please give us one star on. Or however you read this any any stars will do even a star at at least just. Don't give a zero..

"You're literally looking at cultural artifact for archaeologists something right the waning moments of this happening in Hollywood. Because this doesn't happen anymore. Yeah here's an actual note that I wrote if they all shut the fuck up. This movie would have been over in five minutes. That's what I wrote. It's just rude. That's just rude but yeah what do you think about this look I? I don't want to think too hard about it because it's GonNa make me not like this movie but yeah every everything they do. It's as though this movie was made so that could work for blind audiences as well as as people who could see 'cause they say everything to do is tell don't show this movie could just be a an audio book. Say everything that's happening. It's a podcast podcasts. It could just be a podcast. This movie is a podcast. Yeah they say everything. They're going to do before they do it. And then they do it and they fail at it but when was the last time you saw anything like this could have been like one of the last movies of John? Laura that telegraphed there but dave. There's a reason why I don't know like I'm a huge fan of the fast and furious franchise and I think that like there are a lot of similarities. Like that. Is obviously this sort of descendant of of this movie are the fast and furious movies where it's just pure just like? I'm GonNa say this ridiculous thing and then you're going to see me. Do this ridiculous thing. Nothing is going to be expected. I did think about facile furious franchise a lot while watching it because the jumping out of a burning building the car chase towards the end. That's all like the DNA of this movie. Definitely lives on in that franchise. So you're right that sense. Do you think that it was annoying that they only referenced the Eighties and Nineties for nostalgia for the future? Yeah there's there's literally lethal weapon poster up in the background Liu Nina. Huxley's Office Red Hot Chili peppers poster. It's like so weird. When I saw it in context I it was super clever. I'll be honest as a kid. I was like Oh. That's so funny. Because that's really our world but yeah it's a little over the top. I will say this though. Chang you and I talk often about movie set in the future and whether or not they get the future right and I would love to hear what you guys think about their perception of future. Here it's twenty thirty two. In some senses. Everything is dominated by facetime. Their version of facetime. Everybody communicates via facetime. There are self driving cars. That aren't that different from what we have now. And Yeah what do you guys think? I have a lot to say about this because this is basically the crux of my entire not watching this movie but also watching. His argument is is my whole thing for any movie that takes place in the future for to pass. Muster test is the two thousand one space odyssey right or bladerunner. Those are the two but really two thousand one is number one in Blaine to where you watch a movie and Space Odyssey came out in like seven or known before that late sixties and bladerunner came on like eighty two space odyssey. They even know what the Earth looks like from outer space when they made that that didn't exist so it took real imagination. And if you watch that now from there like going down or space and eating and sleeping and all these things it still makes sense to me as that might be the future right. Even how and blade runner again is a perfect example of that still might be the future. It's so well thought out and constructed that it's like a benchmark where future technology might go where this movie fails the two thousand one space odyssey tests in spades is that there's nothing they use. That isn't technology from nineteen ninety three for the for the most part. Yeah with the exception of one thing that anything is truly genius and future thinking to secure foam went. So God Chang describe what that is. It's something that was that should be here today. Basically with like nanotechnology or something like you get a crash and immediately shoots the safety foam. But you're stuck in place and then you can easily break out of but it's it prevents you from you know trauma physical blunt force trauma. It's brilliant. This image has stuck with me nearly thirty years now this fucking image sly stallone crashes this car and immediately upon impact. The entire car is flooded with foam that solidifies from so he cannot move cannot break a bone. Nothing can happen him it is. I'm like from the time I saw that till now I was like. Why don't cars have that? That's the one two thousand one space odyssey thing that they got that still far ahead in the future. That could possibly happen the other thing. That's interesting again. Why it's SORTA stuck in nineteen ninety-three technology is. They're basing the future of twenty thirty six and there's no cloud the cloud literally would be beyond anyone's comprehension in one thousand nine hundred thirty. Yeah sized alone has to get a physical copy of the security tapes. You can't just download it and using a cd-rom and then plugging into TV's that are not flat screen or anything they're just click TV. Did the other advancement the other major technical advancement in I'm sorry what is his name. Daniel waters has his name in the. What's hers in future as the three seashells and so which we never get an explanation of issue the they come up multiple times. I'll set the scene. I want to hear what you guys think about this but Sylvester Sloan emerges from Kreil freeze. He's been frozen for thirty odd years and he's gotTa take a shit and he comes out and says to the police officers. I don't know if you realize this but you're out of toilet paper and they all start snickering at him and say Oh my God. Yeah back in the twentieth. They used little sheets of paper and Rob Schneider who we didn't mention as one of the cast members here snickers and says Oh. He doesn't know how to use the three seashells so evidently in the future toilet paper has been replaced by three seashells. And here's something that you shouldn't do is think about how someone might use three shells in place of toilet paper. It's like a futuristic day of some sort rate. That's what it's supposed to be so good. I was leaving for you. That was just like a layup and I wanted you to have it and I'm so happy that you jumped all over the three shells. All of my all of my willpower. Not to talk about it. I mean like you know you know that was the only thing I wanted to talk about the three seashells and I don't put putting aside. Here's the question that arose from my whole childhood. I I wondered. How do you used three seashells to clean your? But but then the question. The question that dawn on me today in rewatching this was so faster. Sologne has been incredible freeze for thirty something years. Why does he have to take a Shit Titi when he was put under Kreil freeze and he's been holding in for thirty years and now it's odd? That's a great question. Can we talk about the dystopia underworld future and how it looks exactly like some kind of movie studio in Universal Studios? Looks so wait. They literally shot it in a very clearly a sound stage. Perfect signs everywhere. Yeah so the the underground world where Dennis leary and his band of steam punk freedom fighters live the scraps. Scraps is is is set. They just like I don't know rented from Universal Studios like it was just I? It's barely dressed up as anything. I don't really understand it at all. And what is it? It's like it's supposed to be. I don't know it's supposed to be like a night market. Seen there's just these kind of people running around everywhere. I will say this though and I. I'm I really want to hear what you think about this Dave. So they go down into the underworld and Sandra Bullock and Benjamin. Bratt are are disgusted and they say like Oh my God what is that smell and Sylvester. Stallone immediately recognized as the smell of burgers and he goes and he gets a burr. Orders a burger from Spanish speaking Vendor he orders a beer and a burger and he eats it and finds out that the meat is rat but then successor Sloan. I've never I've never loved his character more than the moment he finds out. It's rat and cocks his head and he takes another bite and says this is the Best Burger. I've had a long time. I was so proud of him. I was so I was so proud of. I'm so proud of well. No he says it's the Best Burger. He's at an along in years before the information hits him but then he takes another bite and says hey not too bad. Yeah but he keeps. He keeps eating it. He keeps on Roy motherfucking here too. We also talk about the hair. How everyone in the underworld has perfect hair? That's been hairsprayed in jail when they haven't taken a shower months you don't have to. It's pretty funny and they haven't yet they have neon signs directing where you need to go all throughout the underworld all right so so Dennis. Leary pits this question. Everybody live up there and you live in doctor Cocteau's world Do what he says and what he wants down here. You might starve to death but she lived free honest answer which of those two worlds is more appealing.

"Hey everyone it's dave chang. It's going to be a little bit of an unusual week on the podcast. We were scheduled to release a fascinating interview with dr jim. Jim kim former president of the world bank but we're going to be pushing that back so i can address something i found out about yesterday can't really talk about anything else after we found out about this crazy shit some of you may have heard read steve ross the real estate developer investor and owner of the miami dolphins oftens is hosting a fundraiser for the trump campaign this week. The reason i bring this up is one of these companies as investment arm are as adventures has made investments estimates and numerous companies in sports teams around the world including momofuku. I spent the day checking in and discussing things with teams around all around move fuca restaurants and collected my thoughts which share with you now i want to start by saying this and personally am a staunch opponent to president then trump and everything he stands for. I fucking hate him. Anyone that normalizes gun violence white supremacy putting kids into cages his general lack of decency and respect for anyone else. He is destroying our democratic craddock norms. I cannot stand behind him. This is a complicated situation for me personally and i know it raises a lot of questions questions for the people who dina restaurants and supported us over the years watch our shows and listened to the podcast. I want to get to all of that but i need need to address some of the things for the people that work for me at momofuku or appears in this industry i have always worked to champion a safe open open diverse equitable and inclusive world at momofuku. We always strive to be that. We could always be better that has always been our goal. There's simply no other way for a restaurant to be great or have a lasting impact unless you can be a good neighbor to your community and to your peers into the people around you. It's simply put to work in the restaurant. Business is to embrace people from all walks of life and cultures. That is the very thing that makes this business which is so dumb fantastic at times in light of this development. It's incumbent upon all of us at momofuku to double down on our commitment coming into one another. We must reinforce the culture of tolerance and empathy that we worked so hard to build these past fifteen years and realized that talk is cheap. We we must show it in action every day roughly three thousand people dining restaurants that's more than a million people each year. We have to beat so much better because we have the opportunity to influence and inspire everyone of them with our actions. Yes our goal is to show them hospitality and generosity but my secret hope is that we can also do our small part to fight cultural bias and bring people greater understanding through food and since two thousand four. I hope people can see that's what we've tried to do. I also have to emphasize that. I don't expect everyone at momofuku komo food to share my beliefs so long as you are respectful to your colleagues and dutiful to your responsibilities. You'll have a place in our company. Even though i hate trump now for everyone else who doesn't work and momofuku or no us as well i won't sugarcoat the situation or pandered ended you with an explanation of the realities of restaurants and modern finances and the complexities of investing and all that shit as a person in general i just always want to be on the right side of the moral fence having the moral compass to help us make the right decisions hard decisions. Steve was the only potential investor who believed in the vision of what mahmoud could could be an offers us the freedom to seek fat out nevertheless. We're on the wrong side here. The fact is our investor is supporting the campaign of a person. I emphatically stand against steve. If you're listening and i know that you listen to this podcast sometimes i respect and admire you as a businessman is men. You have been a champion of all the values of momofuku. You've done a great deal for us as a company and i truly appreciate it but i'm imploring you to reconsider hosting this fundraiser it flies in the face of everything we believe in that moment fhu it frightens many of the people that work for you you and contradicts what i hope to accomplish by taking your money in the first place we will have to figure all this out somehow finally the only for their fans of the day of chiang show. I'm sure that some of you don't even want to hear the ship or unaware of it but this is all aligned everything we do whether it's food or media everything we do is representative the very values that i believe who stands for but for those that are troubled by what i'm telling on you as always please feel free to reach out diaz or send an email at ask david major domo media dot com even exist to express your frustration in anger. I'm listening. No one's more fucking pissed off than me. I'm so pissed off that even sound trump just saying that shit no one is more frustrating. It's been a long day and i the last thing i want. The last thing i ever thought i'd have to do is defend my stance against fucking trump. Thanks everyone we're back tomorrow probably.

The story I think is well known, and if you haven't and you don't understand how she's gotten to where she has plenty of material out there and I highly encourage you guys to go down that rabbit hole. What is it that you think has not been covered that people don't know. Good question. I think that the thing that is often not celebrated for anyone me you like the people that we know closest is the stuff that's not exciting on paper. It's like the everything that happens on the days that are hard and uncomfortable or that are seemingly normal, and that it takes a really long time to build what we've built or to figure out what we figured out. It takes a network of us, probably a small network of people you're willing to trust. It's a lot of tears. It's a lot of sweating. It's a lot of vomiting. It's a lot of dizzying, but the secret to it all is sticking with it. And none of it's like none of it's we wouldn't be interested in doing it if it were easy. But I guess it's the things that haven't been covered or like the grueling moments that no one's interested in hearing about which is like every other day, except for opening day or every other day, except for opening week or every other day that you're not being recognized, you don't have award none of which or actually how I measure success anyways, like for me successes going home at night and being like, did I do a good job? It's we talked about it twelve years ago. Maybe like how weird it is to be a boss after you figure out how to be a great cook where you know the measure of your success is like, did I get my prep list on that? I get it done that I crush it that I get it done faster today than I did yesterday. What is your measure of getting your prep list or crushing service? Like how do you measure that? That we're so conditioned to that being are measuring, how do you measure it in my measure at the end of day is like, did I do a good job in a good job for me is like, was I good person in the world today? Did I do something that actually challenged me the challenge someone else that left a little bit of an impact in the world that made it better, not in a way that's measured on any other level. And I think that's probably the most unspoken part of my world in our industry at large is for most of us

"Welcome to the Dave Chang show part of the ringer podcast network and major Domo media that was y'all Tango, and today I am lucky to have the great snowboarder. Maybe the greatest female snowboarder of all time. Chloe, Kim, recent gold medalist of the young Chang Olympics and someone that I've gotten to know a little bit over the past year. I talk a little bit too much about how we met. We met at the NBC studios and I made her Tristram sandwich that got a little bit of the news, but it was not what I wanted to do. And if anything, even though I don't know, khloe Kim that well, I weirdly, like trying to be a better older brother type figure to her and protect her as much as I can from the nonsense that's out there. And I really admire her. She's endured a lot to get to the golden to where she's at and who she is as a person and what she represents as not just a great. Athlete, not just a Crean American, but someone that I think is Representative of not being pigeonholed and excelling at that and defying sort of what your steer type might be and Chloe, Chloe, Kim. And I wrote her time one hundred induction piece for the past year. She was honored in the time, one hundred and in it I was saying just like, can be khloe, Kim. She's had to endure a lot. She's had to carry the burden of being a Representative Koreans and Korean American culture and snowboard culture. And at the time she was only seventeen so much of what I believed was everyone wanted to dictate how she should be and how she represents Crean American culture and being a role model and having a little bit of that myself, even though I'm much older than Chloe, I wanted to make sure that she got to write her own destiny. And you know the same thing, she doesn't eat any of my help, but she's been doing just fine on her own. So I was. Stoked that we reached out to Chloe and she agreed to do this because I think she's a role model for everyone including myself as to how you can write your own narrative and sort of defy the expectations. And I was really stoked to have her onboard without further ado. This is my conversation with Chloe, Kim. Am really stoked to have khloe Kim on as guest today. She's currently eating cookie. Chewing. I'm happy to be here. So last we saw each other was in the NBC studios in the Olympic village in punk Chang. I just remember your face being like, I think it was like what the hell is going on. It was a lot. Yeah, after I won, it was like, okay, really excited. I'm happy I won. I wanna go see my family, but I couldn't see my family until after the awards and all that stuff. I remember turning my sister's is bawling her eyes out and not pretty crying for sure. And then some parents briefly. And then I just had to go back to my room change into media outfit. And then we got shipped away to the coastal village to do press for like five, six hours are just like holy hell, like the entire world seem to be following your moves from every tweet that you did to winning the gold medal, which we'll talk about later. But I remember. Over here in from the producers because we were doing stuff for the NBC Olympics that like, hey, Chloe, Kim's coming around this time. You gotta do this, this and this. And I was like, no disrespect. I wanna leave her alone. Like, I'm sure everyone wants to talk to where in she's just going to have this release. So I will remember being like, I'm gonna void her as much as I want to talk to you. I was like, no, when a give her space, and then you came in there was a big hush in the offices. And then I just left the Mike Trico show and then you are going right on that right after me. And then I'm having like a Cup of coffee or something, and I don't remember who it was, but one of the producers was like, hey, like you shouldn't like khloe. Listen, I wanna leave the hell on the twentieth time and I'm Willie competitive. Obviously you are and someone started throwing shade like one of the producers like you couldn't cook for Chloe, Kim. You couldn't do this this, and I was like, I don't know what happened by snap, and I was like, screw it. I'm gonna. To go to the commissary and I'm gonna make you sure is sandwich out of pizza dough. And next thing I know it happened. I somehow like in this room and then you in and I was just like, this is incredibly surreal experience. I have no idea what's going on, but now I have a glimpse of what your life was like. Day that show sandwich. So good. A saying, you should add that to your dessert menu. Arrest warrants would love to, but I was not something that I would ever want to do like that's just something I don't do, but it has been even before the Olympics and then you win the gold. I'm trying to find words, which is why I want to hear from you, what's it been like winning the gold and to where it is now at like, it's been several months, what's been happening? I mean, I guess I'll just talk the whole process late twenty seventeen. I was like, okay, like khloe is expected to win the Olympics and the country that our parents were born in nice before I knew I was on the team. I was talking about being an Olympian and going to the Olympics and hoping I'll do. And it's not that I wanted to talk about it as more like, that's just what we had to do. Because everything that I talked about at those interviews was gonna be released during the Olympics. So it was like, just thinking like, how terrible would it be if I hate myself up like this and. I don't even make the team personally. The whole qualification process was a living nightmare. Like I was so scared and I was so nervous every contest. Thankfully, I won the first two which guaranteed my spot, but I was still so terrified. Can you talk a little bit about that? Feelingly everyone probably expects and myself to like, oh, she's definitely going to win this. I can't imagine the crazy pressure that's under how do you deal with that? Yeah, you know, it's not like. You win by being the best in the field. It's not like you win for having the most votes like being the most likeable person. At the end of the day, it comes down to how good you are your sport and for me like, yeah, I mean, I definitely did pretty well before the Olympics, but I've never competed at such a big in a such a big event before where everything was so much more formal than our normal contests carrying around credential. Even those little things made me feel so out of place in a sense. So yeah, I mean, I was definitely very nervous and even frustrated. Sometimes this having so many people expecting me to win something I've never been to and keep telling myself. It's my first Olympics, like I just wanna do the best I can, but if I don't win, that's fine. Like as long as I'm happy with the way I was writing, then I'd be okay, but he no go on social media and everyone's like khloe Cam favored to win gold at the Olympics. Like would be the young. Snowboarder ever win a gold medal in just like, why do you guys do this to me? Like I'm just doing what I love. Why are you trying to change the story? Just add more pressure to me. Like I don't like pressure. I never really felt pressure until the Olympics, and I didn't really know what to do with myself. But I mean, I was with my team in all my friends than people that I trusted and I just made sure to keep those people really close and feel as home as possible. You love snowboarding obviously, but at some point is like, hey, there's a lot of great things that have happened because of it. But right now, all the baggage this is making it not worth it l. absolutely. It's like I started snowboarding because I loved it. And for the first time, it almost felt like a job. And I felt like I had to provide for everyone in a sense like it wasn't felt like I wasn't doing it for me at one point because of all my fans, and even, you know, a lot of Korean people had very high expectations, and I'm very grateful for that. When. People expect you to win. Let's you know it's pretty good thing, but at the same time I just didn't want to let anyone
"chang" Discussed on The Dave Chang Show
"And bartenders, and the b. o. h. back of the house are the cooks and we just overloaded. Everyone was so much information. But I think as I turned forty and I've been in business now some time, I think Finally, I have better maturity to execute some of the ideas that I've always wanted. A lot of that happens because I have people that I can trust. So right off the bat, we wanted to let people know our expectations of them as a cook. It's from how you label something to how you take notes down to how you rap stuff in plastic, how you organize. And it dawned on me that like all these things happen in piecemeal in a normal restaurant. But we wanted to set the code and the benchmark right off the bat that, hey, we're going to falter. We're not going to always be our best. But we have to remind ourselves that even our worst day, we need to like hold ourselves accountable to make all these small things right? And it may not make any sense to the listener. But basically when you are opening a restaurant lease, how I've done it, someone new comes in, even though you have established team and culture and you just expect them to assimilate. You don't explain to them, hey, this is how we do it here, right? You just be like, hey, they're going to sink or swim, and while that works and can be infective I think it's just also very hard to figure out and we have a really strong group of cooks in over two months. We've only lost two. 'cause you kill them? No, I've thought about it. Sometimes was a literally a death in the family and another one was a can't talk about. No, they're gonna come back. Okay. It's just so you stabbed them, but they're covering. Now they're, they're going to come back in April. They just had to take care of something. So you have not had staff turmoil, which is good, almost no staff turnover. We haven't even mentioned it that the restaurant is like the biggest success in like five or six years away, kind of buried the lead on that one. Well, let's go backwards though. Because the last time you did this, you didn't know what was on the menu and you really nervous about stuff, but you also couldn't tell us stuff because I still didn't know. Right. I didn't know if you're hiding something. Are you going in January, didn't know when you look at what was the biggest fork in the road for you? How do you explain what we're doing? Our food I felt had so much narrative and so much explaining that I was worried that it would be lost in trying to be, you know, while we're not trying to be pretentious, I thought the food and explaning of it could easily become that. So explaining like people now, like I'm going to tie restaurant. I'm going to Asian fusion restaurant. You felt like you didn't have the two where even turn the dishes that we were trying to do. I made that mistake in the past of. Trying to explain and being sometimes too blonde or too verbose or whatever. Like I didn't know what angle to play. Secondly, we're in Los anti-debt. You had the angle as you. This is David Chang's Reynaud. That doesn't work anymore. That's really Howard though. No trust this guy. I've heard good. I'm going to go. And then the food was really what I think part of that was having the confidence trust myself because in the years past, I think I've also that confidence. Yeah, we'll buy a lot of this. If you're doing was in New York, where people knew who you were, you couldn't trade on your name as much anymore, and it had to be like, what's his next big thing? What's he doing now? Whereas here it's like David Chang here. Great. Well, we get a service food part of my unease about that with something we've spoken about before. I didn't want us to be the land falcons versus the patriots to Superbowls ago. Yeah, where I love them now come. You know, it's hard to be able to make decisions when you have the lead like you can be paralyzed by it. And that's a weird place to be when you have such a big lead that that's why call it hubris. I like you don't even understand why you got there, but you believe in the lead instead of believing in yourself, and then you sort of lose your way a little bit. And I wouldn't say that necessarily how isn't as sixteen, keep going. Yeah. And like you know, you gotta eat humble pie sometimes, and we spoke about that in the previous pods. But part of that was finding like my confidence and it wasn't that me being confident in me and something that I've spoken about internally before it was like, hey, I'm going to explain to people like you just trust me. Listen to me. I'm not saying listen to me because you gotta listen to me, listen to me because I actually don't know what I'm doing. Yeah, that makes any sense. And that was part of feeling that like nausea again where I'm not feeling comfortable about it. And so listen me because I need your help. And I might say things that I haven't sorted out my head yet and you can help me get to the next level or but more so I don't know where we're going. Right, but listen to me, not because I have the answer, but we need to literally look at the process and just make mistakes. What I'm trying to say is like, hey, it's like we need to make adjustments at halftime that everything's gonna work, and we have to know it didn't wear like get data back and you need to look at that data and you can't. Do the same thing if it didn't work before, and that's part of that process. And if you have really good people and you have right intentions, you care enough and think tremendously good things can come out of it. But part of that is you need to be in that freefall. You need to be comfortable with that sort of not knowing what's going to happen. And while I'm comfortable with it, it's not a good feeling. A lot of people don't like working like that push, you need people a little outside the French, like someone like me who's like, hey, less than I was there. But you weren't there in the MAC and cheese wasn't chasing. That's good information. Yeah, you want data. So then there was a lot of uncertainty as to what was happening, and I didn't know what was going to work. I had some ideas, but part of it was going against what is traditionally conventional wisdom. The decision that's the lowest hanging fruit or the most efficient decision is not maybe the right decision. And that's really hard to challenge yourself. Yeah, right. As like a sports analogy, I remember like the Super Bowl, unfortunately, this time around the eagles. Verse the pats when they went for it on four down yet I'm in religion that audio just gives me goosebumps. That is fucking awesome to be able to have that inland is. Because like to go for four down and to do that play where they're doing a pitch to the running back and a throw to the quarterback that's easily the dumbest decision you could possibly make. Yeah. Even if your practice it because it defies what you probably should do, which is kick afield yet, and some good things can happen out of like really untraditional thinking and that sort of where I want us to be at my team, the b. at in the restaurant to be an and there was all this uncertainty and I wanted us to actually grow from that uncertainty at that point like anything, it'd be possible and it's really hard to get Abreu of people together to commit to not knowing what might happen. And to me, that's a feeling of total terror. Yeah, and excitement because that's how new stuff can happen. So what happened with the opening? My biggest fair was the location. Yeah,
