Skepticism Is Key for Bob Cesca Over Possible Gun Legislation

"Gears what are your thoughts on the gun legislation that may happen in the Senate? That macaw has indicated that he's putting it. Yeah, yeah. I'm still, I think healthily skeptical as to whether or not those ten Republicans who have agreed to support this legislation will actually step up and break the filibuster. When the time comes, now I'm trying not to be cynical about this. I'm just skeptical about because we've been this we've been in this place many, many times. Lucy, I'm just hesitant to become. Yeah, I don't want to be Lucy with the football. Charlie Brown with the football. And because that has happened so many times after sandy hook, the mansion to me amendment, which would have closed all kinds of loopholes in the system. That was filibustered, right? Even though it had bipartisan support, pat toomey was one of the co authors of it. And so in that sense, I'm skeptical as to whether this is going to pass. And I'm looking at a lot of the statements that are coming out through that lens. So with Mitch McConnell, for example, he said he was happy with the framework. Right. Which doesn't yeah, that gives him a lot of wiggle room to say, well, I like the framework, but then they got their talons into it and they started messing with it. They turned it into something that I just can't support and conscious because the Second Amendment, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. And so he's got room. You did. The head came out of the shell to make a statement. Yeah. Right. So he's got wiggle room to kind of escape from. He said that he said, he said, if the legislation ends up reflecting what the framework indicates, I'll be supporting it. So right, right. If background checks all of a sudden are added in, nope. That was deliberate. That much, yeah. McConnell's reaction right there. Every word that he said was deliberately placed to give him an escape

And talking about how they're really only two good ones, and that was the Grinch and Charlie Brown. They say if you look at the messages for some of the other ones, especially like Rudolph, they're kind of nasty. They're not very nice, and the message that's sent throughout all of them isn't necessarily say what you will, but it is an interesting thought.

Elizabeth Warren Dares to Call Elon Musk a Freeloader

"Consider how Elizabeth Warren and by the way, she's struggling with COVID right now. That news just came out. So we wish her well, but she came out and said that Elon Musk, who just paid the most taxes of anybody or is paying the most taxes of anybody this year, $11 billion, that he's a freeloader. He's a freeloader. You know, she wants her fair share. Bernie Sanders wants his fair share. Have you ever seen Charlie Brown Christmas? I was watching it with my family last night, and there's this scene where Sally, who's the little sister of Charlie Brown. Says, you know, she wants X, Y, and Z for Christmas. She's got a really long list that she wants to give to Santa. And Charlie Brown is like, gee, you know? It's a lot. And she looks what I'm and says, I just want my fair share. Just my fair share. What I have coming to me, oh gosh. Sounds like it. It could have been Bernie Sanders. In fact, maybe it was because he was saying exactly that back in 1965 when this movie was made. Anyway, there's still out there pushing this fair share nonsense. So the Elon Musk, Elon Musk is somehow bad person because he's created a massive amount of wealth. He's created the very EV industry that they're also jazzed about. And he's made the most taxes in history.

Sen. Ron Johnson Responds to Other Republicans Faulting to Infrastructure Bill

"How is it that 19 of your colleagues decided this was a good idea on the Republican side. I can't explain that. Then they kept telling us who is fully paid for which course it ended up not being paid for another quarter of a trillion, about $256 billion more to our deficit. I nobody kept talking about how you know, spending in structure is really popular. Well, let's face it. Three. Money's always popular right, right. Nothing's ever free. But and then they also realize that being bipartisan is popular as well. But I always use caution constituents come up, say, you know, be more Brian Parsons. So we'll be careful what you wish for because I'll guarantee what one thing that Washington is really good at doing in a bipartisan basis, and that is mortgaging our Children and grandchildren and great grandchildren feature. And Of course, that's what we saw over the last couple days here, you know, $1.2 trillion infrastructure. 3.5, which is really over $5 trillion of Bernie's budget. No, that's tacked on the $1.9 trillion covid relief package. Where and then this actually relates the infrastructure over $700 billion of that covid relief isn't even steps to be spent till 2022 to 2028. I've always said to Republican position infrastructure, and we do need to invest in infrastructure. But our position should have been as less cake. The $700 billion that is clearly not coverted leaf. Repurpose that money for hard infrastructure, roads, bridges, ports, locks and dams. But again, we had too many Republican members that just wanted to get behind closed doors. You know the old swampy Washington way do a bipartisan deal. And of course, you know that the bottom line is they're being Charlie Brown's to the Democrats, Lucy each and every time in this time, Lucy was screaming issues going to pull the football away.

"Power to in these spaces. And that was an area. Where i i think you're exactly right of the american society and culture was really struggling with and still struggling with As we're having our you know our critical race theory arguments in two thousand twenty one and and it was one that that charles shulz really struggled with. And and while i give him great credit for the really important and influential brave stand that that he takes with franklin. You know i. I also explore some of the ways in which franklin in this effort kind of fall short of delivering. Exactly what harry glickman and others were calling for which was an expansion of the voices in the conversation so yeah absolutely it The there there's a sort they're sort of positive elements to the wishy-washiness of this wishy washy ideology but they're also negatives right things that get they get overlooked or undervalued because of that wishy-washiness. Hi chuck high peppermint patty. Hi franklin. Hi marcie hi chuck. There's another character. Charles schultz introduces around the same time peppermint patty and a friend marcy Who both become lesbian icons but it. It's really more peppermint patty and she's still one today. And i imagine that schultz must have been aware of this interpretation. And i feel that if it really bothered him he you know he would have forced patty to to wear a dress or or get with the program but obviously he was one hundred percent behind this lovely character And he allowed her to forge her own way and chafe at things like dress codes and people telling her that she had to be more like a normal girl. But i but i feel like in this character With peppermint patty. I feel you know. This is an example of where we can see wishy-washiness working for him not just artistically but politically. It's almost like you can see the roots of a i. Don't ask don't tell policy with patty. Yes that's you know that is. That is a great point and in some ways. It almost almost connects to that colorblind ideology With franklin of of of sort of we're going to we're going to meet on our on our broadest must basic terms and we're going to Appreciate our community in our togetherness. But we're not gonna delve into our differences or are places conflict marcy. I hope you're satisfied. You destroy trucks guess cottage. It's not a guest cottage sir. It's a dog. cows and snoopy is not a funny looking kid with a big nose. He's a beagle. When are you going to face up to reality. I think peppermint patty is probably one of the most complex characters in the poll. Fifty year story. Where charlie brown always like struggles to articulate his failing to the person that he he loves Peppermint patty almost seems to seems to be conflicted over. An perhaps because scholtz felt constrained in expressing some of these things but She's conflicted and even expressing how it is that she feels and so so even her expressions of love oftentimes come out as much as expressions of just deep internal frustration. Which i think for I think for a lot of folks in the lgbtq plus community that that's very relatable that feeling of not having the vocabulary or the freedom to express an and explore what idiot what these complicated feelings are in what they mean about who who you are now waiting sir. I hate the dish appoint user. I saw child any not coming margining. You don't know about these things. Kilby here can charles. Doesn't even know you call. Last night was asleep. The kids he comes from. You wouldn't end and i'm trying to tell you sir he's not coming to be here in whitney. Might do the way you want. Yeah yeah did you find any letters where schultz actually know corresponded with Fans who were appreciative of of this connection that they made Regarding peppermint patty's sexuality every instance. I found he stayed pretty far away from that. Discussion that said from the late fifties onward schultz had renegotiated his contract to take control of all of the licensing of the peanuts characters. And there are a number of occasions like for example A song What was the name of the band. In the mid sixties royal the royal the royal guardsmen. Yeah yeah creative. Associates schultz took them to court to get them to do proper licensing to to do that song and they got it worked out and they're able to do that but point is Schultz was not above pursuing legal remedies to people using his characters in ways that he did not approve in the fact that this proliferation in gay culture of kind of re appropriating the character of peppermint patty and marcie. The fact that that is allowed to continue without really any kind of redress from the schultz folks kind of signifies that he at least saw this as a allowable reading of the characters even if did not publicly endorse that you know so so so. And i think there's i think there's something i think there's something there again. It's a super subtle way of voicing political opinion. But yeah i buy this one So schultz draws the comic until his death in two thousand. And i really in find that last decade of the strip because in the nineties many of his peers like bill. Watterson and gary larson throw in the towel. Or maybe they just see the future. They of what the internet's going to do to newspapers and comic strips but schultz is not a quitter. He continues until he physically has to stop in fact he passes away on the very evening before the last peanuts strip runs in newspapers. But after reading your book feel like the year. Nineteen eighty eight is also important when it comes to Endings because this is the year. That the cultural dominance of peanuts starts to who is he. That's general washington. General george washington. He's going to preside over the convention. The surface nine hundred eighty eight year. Old snoopy big-budget multi part animated tv series called. This is america. Charlie brown but this series you right tries and fails to deal with some pretty big shifts cultural and political shifts. That are taking place in america at this moment. What happened well. First of all it was history making in that it was the first animated miniseries in in american history and What this This is america. Charlie brown what it attempts to do is to tell the history of the country through a is in in retelling of the peanuts characters ended Trying to in some ways. Bridge a gap between reagan's america. This very hyper patriotic Very you know. American exceptionalism kind of kind of lens of you know. Here's here's what makes america great unique out of out of all the nations of the world with a counter to that the sort of emerging increasing look to how america can't really live up to its potential without identifying in dealing with and taking responsibility for its flaws and it's missteps and.

"Administering the war but as you point out at the very moment this antiwar momentum picks up charles shulz kills this storyline and if he knew or was aware that more and more of his readers were making this connection between vietnam. And snoopy's fight with the red baron. Then this decision to kill the story is totally wishy. Washy almost cowardly. But that's not what you see you see principal. Yeah you blame. you would think. Get the height of success or a storyline. That that you would just cut it off but yet that's that's really what charles shulz does there. There is this kind of precipitous gain in market share in readership in the last five years of the nineteen sixties and in no small part to the fact that increasingly snoopy is becoming a leading character and snoopy is becoming a leading character. Oftentimes in the alter ego of the flying ace in so these things are very much tied together. But in nineteen seventy snoopy very definitively desserts the war and charles schulz was asked about that and he explicitly in this interview connects it to what was going on the vietnam war. He said we're we're just finding. This was such a gruesome war that it didn't seem like the kind of thing to be made light of in a comic strip and that was in itself a a subtle but powerful statement. I think let's talk about another more overt political statement when that readers couldn't miss in nineteen sixty eight schultz added a new character a black character to the strip franklin. And i have to say. I was really blown away to learn the back story behind this introduction. You found an exchange of letters from a reader who basically made the case to schultz that he had to do this. The introduction of franklin comes in the summer of nineteen sixty eight and this is a really weird time for pop culture in america. there's been a recognition that Some of the older racialist negative stereotypes of say disney song of the south and and things like this the there's been a recognition that Okay those things are openly offensive and they are out of sync with the times but they had not yet reached a place where popular creators whether in cartooning In television or film they not yet really reached a place where they knew what to replace it with. And so there's a period here in the mid sixties where in large part black characters disappear. And it's in this context. In the spring of nineteen sixty eight charles schultz receives a letter from a stay at home mom in southern california by the name of harry glickman and she's on this one woman campaign to try to effect change in the popular culture that her kids are consuming at home. Whether on tv she writes different tv studios and movie production companies. But she's also riding to cartoonist. Because she sees her kids enjoying the newspaper cartoons and comic books and so one of the artists that she writes to charles schultz and she asked charles shulz to introduce black characters in into peanuts and charles shorts response that he is very much in sympathy with her concern but he feels personally and had he said for for a number of years Personally conflicted about whether he's the right person to do this. Given the fact he's a white man he's from the midwest. He grew up in a largely white community and was not sure if he was the right voice to do this. Will glickman takes the the fact that is interested or that he sympathizes with our viewpoint takes that as an opportunity to keep pushing and so she writes again and she says. Will i understand your concern about potentially being patronizing to african american readers. So why don't i put you in touch with some friends for my community. Some african american families that could tell you their perspective on this so she does. She begins to collect letters black friends in her communities and associates that she was working with on Social reform campaigns in southern california and schultz is kind of. It's almost like a light bulb. Goes off this this kind of realization. That while he might not be the perfect person to know exactly how to ride a black voice. He is perfectly situated to help move the culture to help break the barrier break the stalemate in the industry in entertainment industry of of not representing the the black audience in so So he takes the step in he takes it in a very solti in way it's subtle but it's powerful. He introduces franklin at the beach with charlie brown. They're they're just there two boys in their swim trunks clear as day. That one is why the other is black and yet they're interaction is is instant in kind of natural At the end of their week together building sandcastle together. Charlie brown invites franklin to come visit him at his home before long. Franklin moves to the neighborhood in fact. Yeah i feel we should mention how conservative the comics page was as a platform especially at this moment cartoonist. Schultz worked for syndicates. Who in turn sold the strips to individual papers and the editors of these individual papers were very vocal about what they did in. Didn't like so when schultz put franklin into the same school system as some of the other white kids number of southern editors started complaining and the syndicate even approach schultz with the idea that perhaps he should stop this story line with franklin to which schultz responds. How 'bout you print the stripped away. I dry it or i quit now. I feel like this statement which you quote in your book reveals not just his conviction but also and awareness of his own power you know it kind of brings some of the wishy-washiness of the whole thing to the surface. Because by making franklin such generic personality lists character. Schultz doesn't really have anything to offer. Accept this idea of color blindness. Which is something. We're still dealing with today and popular culture especially in tv. We get shows with diverse casts but never an acknowledgement that these diverse characters have like actual racial identities. Yes and it kind of pains me to think that charles through this act of conviction may have paved the way for this wishy. Washy approach to diversity popular culture. Yeah that's that's that's a fabulous point color blindness in its execution in culture is always endanger of sort of Falling into the sort of simple trap of of of just Just an eye test right does it. Does it look diverse. Rather the the question of whose voices in who stories in whose perspective and who's lynn's You know are are we. Are we using or giving.

"charlie brown" Discussed on Benjamen Walker's Theory of Everything

"Most important american artist of the second half of the twentieth century was the cartoonist. Charles schultz and this dear listener is not a statement of preference. It is a statement of fact because peanuts charles schulz's comic strip debuted on october second nineteen fifty and ended on february thirteenth. Two thousand charles. Schulz wrote and drew his comic strip every day during the second half of the twentieth century but there were also tv specials and movies and toys and gigantic parade balloons and advertising campaigns. His characters. Charlie brown snoopy linus lucy peppermint patty and schroeder were everywhere. Millions upon millions of americans had a relationship with peanuts. Which really was a relationship with charles. Schultz says all of the characters emanated from his own inner world. So if someone can point to another american artists to achieve more than this than sure. I'm happy to offer a correction but otherwise i'm sticking with my statement. Charles scholtz was the most important american artist of the second half of the twentieth century. Today though it is difficult to explain to someone who didn't grow up in a world of comic strip so even daily newspapers just how powerful of a platform journal show tat for his art. But i recently came across a new book that helps. It's called charlie. Brown's america and it's written by blake scott ball an assistant professor of history at huntington university in montgomery alabama. His book he told me began with a desire to study historical events through the everyday lives of people who live them. I was looking for an avenue to get closer to an everyday experience of the second half of the twentieth century after after world war. Two and i thought you know what better source than than peanuts with it. As you pointed out being every day for fifty years i mean. It's like a rolling visual journal of american life in society during during those five decades. It's really incredible as a just as a primary source of american history. So i have to confess that when an image of your book cover popped up in my newsfeed. I kinda did a double take. Because the book is called charlie brown america the popular politics of peanuts and politics. Just isn't a word. I would associate with peanuts in fact showed seem to go to great lengths In his life to distance himself from politics he famously hated the comic strip doonesbury for precisely reason he he believes the cartoonist. Garry trudeau was using the comics. Page to score political points and gary growth. The publisher of the complete peanuts noted this as well when he interviewed schultz in the late eighties. You cite this interview in your book. One of the most remarkable things about the strip growth said is that there are no perceivable ideologies. Schultz agreed chuckling. Sort of a wishy-washiness. Because you're so wishy washy. How can anybody ever be in love with borey. Dull wishy-washy old chuck wishy-washiness is of course the defining character trait of charlie brown. He lets all the strong characters in the strip. Like lucy and peppermint patty push him around even his friend linus and his dog. Snoopy are embarrassed of of this trait and they often take advantage of it but wishy-washiness as political ideology. What exactly does that mean. Yeah so charles. Scholtz evaluated the changing world around him. Not so much in the staunch strick ideologies of you know a certain a certain set of coherent beliefs that are infallible and unbiddable but instead he sort of evaluated things on a much more personal in human and circumstantial almost a social pragmatism and so many times the ideology of peanuts is not so much dictating a viewpoint to To the audience as it is sort of suggesting. Questions reflecting upon concerns fears uncertainties of the world. That they're living in. I i see the the wishy-washiness of peanuts really facilitating a place. A space for conversation and we see this in the fan mail That comes by the hundreds of thousands of letters over the years. You spent a lot of time at the shows. Museum digging through archives of fan mail for this project. And in many instances you found direct evidence of this space readers writing into talk with schultz about their different sometimes conflicting interpretations of the comic for example. When line is read from the bible at christmas time evangelical wrote in to voice their support for what they took as christian fundamentalism but atheist in hippies wrote in as well to commend linus for speaking out about the hyper commercialization of christmas. So this wishy washy and it seems to work really well for schultz as an artistic strategy but did it really work as political strategy. Here's the world war. One flying ace climbing into the cockpit of shop with camel. You make the case that schultz introduce snoopy's most famous alter ego the world war one flying ace in the mid sixties as a way of commenting on the vietnam war and as much as i love. Snoopy's fight with the red baron. I can totally understand. Why so many people myself included miss this because it a connection that schultz made hard to spot on purpose. Yeah we're one flying. Ace is not explicitly about vietnam but in the larger picture. We can definitely see vietnam. Is this sort of looming conundrum in the background of peanuts and of american life and so this of snoopy is impacted by by. What's going on in the ward. His mission is find the red baron. Shoot him down. It starts off kind of you could almost read in sixty five This sort of heroic ideal you know. Here's here's snoopy he's proud he's he's decked out he's flying into battle and there's this sort of irony in that he He keeps losing. But it's played largely as as a joke but as this goes along the the story becomes more and more Visceral for snoopy it becomes more and more visual increasingly the setting for snoopy's imagination becomes darker we actually see the actual battlefield. So the neighborhood that the kids live in terms from suburbia to like these blown out trenches and barbed wire and bonds and all these sorts of things. And the way that this. This storyline evolves really illustrates. What this wishy-washiness was about peanuts. Because what i see happening there is is really charles. Scholtz survey mapping with the general population. Who just a couple of years earlier was was generally in support of the war not particularly concerned about it to any high level and yet is very quickly shifted in in. There's a momentum heading against the war against those.

Snubs and surprises from this year's Golden Globe nominations

"The globe. Nominations happened and boy. They'd seemed a mess. How do you feel hi. How are you feeling about words and being back. I guess i'm glad to have award season back though isn't it. We can discuss specific to these nominations. I feel a little bit like charlie brown with the football because every year we talk about make fun of the hollywood foreign press association. And let's be clear we're going to continue to make fun of them. They are traditionally. It's a small group of international journalists. Who do not have a lot of renown really know outside of the fact that they are in this mysterious priests small group of people. They really like celebrities or their definition of another other thing. We'll discuss and their star fuckers and they give nominations to people they want in a room rather than a merit or at least our interpretation of merit. It seems like to win an award. You just have to go to as many parties as possible and then think the association from the stage. We know that there are always bad. Choices always mysterious traces. We're always like what is going on. Who are these people. Why do we do this. But i would say even for the hollywood foreign press association and even for a film here had some challenges aka pandemic theaters being close and far fewer films released unusual. These are real embarrassing. And i woke up just being like. Are you serious. We have to do this again. Like come on yeah i. It's hard to know we've gone through looking glass or not some of these. I think we're fairly standard and expected in their plenty of movies that i'm sure we'll be talking about when we get to the oscar nominations in a couple months but there were a handful of nominations. What what. I will generously called the surprises. That just took my breath away. That i i think even in my wildest dreams i could not have imagined the fbi concocting so. Let's just talk about them because this award show is happening really soon. It's february twenty eight. It's gonna be hosted by. Amy poehler and tina fey. It's going to be on nbc. And so we're going to actually having awards season to cover for real for real. I think we have to start with the jared leto nomination for the little things. This is probably the single biggest. W t.f of this collection and it's funny because when we talked about the little things on the show last week i think we both walked away from the little things thinking. Jared leto is pretty entertaining in it. And maybe rising to the challenge of this camp script and that being said i. I never considered him. A worthy report surprised to see this nomination. I enjoyed watching him in the little things in the context of the little things which was not a film that worked at all and so at least someone was doing something you know and i was talking with friends about it. There's like a really a nice like vintage. This is bad feeling to the little things that i found pretty comforting. You know it's like it's not like someone just made a twitter thread into a movie on an iphone and like someone wrote a script and they tried to do this old ninety staying. And then jared leto is doing the weird villain and having too much fun with it. It's like i know what's happening here even if it's not working and and i'm glad to have it back. I do not know that it needed to rise to the level of golden globes ovation especially because the golden globes supporting category does not differentiate between drama and comedy in some of the comedy. Nominations things get wild. But that's because you're kind of you're filling it out there some extra slots. A lot of people didn't get nominated in supporting actor. Jared leto like weird joke of serial killer. I think he's right. Can we talk about that for a second. This is dangerous rabbit hole to go down. I have no idea. The truth is. I don't know i think you're meant to believe that he did. Not if you haven't seen this movie. Sorry for spoiling it for you. It's unspoiled in many ways because it has an ambiguous ending of sword. I- i- i- jared. Leto obviously is has won an academy award. He is a very famous person has been celebrated. He's also like kind of a joke. You know like. I really enjoy him as a performer. A famous person. But he's kind of a joke. I mean he's he so Has all of the pretensions. And absurdity of the method actor who sort of you know pulling pranks on his cast members by trying to get into character and so outside and so masking his beauty all the time with these ridiculous roles you know like in the little things that character has like a is is fat and walks with a limp and why it's just pure actually affect nation and the role is actually affectation and the asia was impressed by that or impressed. By the idea of having jared sit in on their award show. But jared. Leto is not tom hanks. For example someone who did not get knocked out.

"Well as e. t. and sunny southern california on. Abc news talk. That's fourteen ninety. Eight am and ninety. Eight point one. Fm because we're on fm now. That's so cool that's awesome. Did you have a good holiday junior. Oh it was awesome. I yeah it was great my My wife was awesome with all the food and she got like. She took care of all the gifts and she did great with that. And you know we just had a family and our friends are still with us so You know we We celebrated together. And yeah everything was great. How about you same thing. Same thing. I had a fantastic holiday. And i hope everybody out there listening did as well and if you didn't know what i've had years like that where you know. Christmas was not good But you know we all go through things in life that are difficult and and you know that's kind of what we're talking about today with watson we have around the line we're talking about charlie brown mindset and how to change the negative self. Talk kip watson. How you doing an excellent. I'm actually to be here. Yeah good to have you here. It really is and so for those of you out there listening. That maybe have never heard kip on the air before that. Perhaps your a new listener. Kip watson is a licensed professional counselor and supervisor. She's also a sports psychology professional. She holds two master's degrees and have has over two years of experience. Where thing working with athletes coaches families in corporate team. She is also a certified high performance coach and a former professional athlete. And mom of two. You can find her on twitter at kipp fit. Always a pleasure okay. So let's talk about this kit. We've all watched charlie brown and his struggle to believe that anything in his life will go well right the want rain but but but as children you know we may not have seen the lesson watching him complain. So why was charlie brown teaching us the importance of negative self-talk somewhat thirty forty years ago. I don't even know when when charlie brown i came on the scene. But you know. I remember like sixties say. Wow wow yeah wow and so. Let's talk about this. Why do so many people have trouble rising above that mindset of negative self talk. I think there's two what i would say main reasons. And it's it's the class nick in my world of psychology of nature and nurture. I think some people are innately mentally wired to be more critical in their mindset. They see what's wrong before they see what's right and that just comes very natural in the media to the And they can be great problem. Solvers in that respect i that would be a strength of it but the negative side of it is that they tend to have that charlie brown at worst case scenario is gonna go wrong type of mindset. So it's probably way and then it can also be from perhaps the environment you grow up in whether you know if your parents are more bent that way than they're typically your first role models ray or the first people you look up to and it's who you spend most of your early years around and so if they're bent that way then then that's what you see that's kind of what you learn. Yeah no excuse me. I totally agree and i think i'm thinking my mom because she was a registered nurse and she said birth and death every single day she actually was the head nurse of the maternity ward in our town for many many years and delivered a lot of babies and you know and then also you know Prepared a lot of people for the morgue. And i can remember her talking about it but it's really funny like anything could happen in our family and my mother always found an upside to it and i think that's that's you know then there's people that are wired that way to whatever is going on and they'll be able to see the good that comes from it. Yeah well you know. She went through a lot of diversity in her life. Lost her her mother or excuse me her father at four and her mother at nine and so was raised by an yeah and was raised by an aunt. Got herself a self educated and a fine education actually in southern california I can't think enable the new important thing i see and what your mom did. She took a tragedy. But then the story perhaps yeah. She told herself every single day is what influenced her life to be able to see the good that contra right what day to ourselves throughout the day or whatever situation we find ourselves going through we are the biggest influence on how we feel and how we perform whether we kinda move into being charlie brown or more towards something more positive like i sometimes i would you know i see linus kind being like he would always kinda come back with more of the positive way of looking at things yet. No absolutely and i think that's so important. It's one of the most important tools that you need to navigate through life and it can become a habit to. Can we talk about that. How easily you can slip into these. Bad habits of of that negative can thinking so easy so easy and i think you know the first step is just to be aware. Yeah Of what your self talk is because the more aware you are seven of it obviously the less you can turn it around. And if you're not even aware of what is a negative thoughts that can lead to a setback like an example of that. These are just common ones. That i hear a lot are like i'll never be good enough or all. Screw that up or that was dumb. Or i'm stupid. Yeah and so it can be even an attack on sell. That's very negative. Until you gotta be aware of what you're doing and not give it further attention. Yeah how do you convince someone as a therapist to change their mind of turn this thing around flip it around like how do you do that. What what tools do you have in your toolbox. Kip watson well to be honest. I don't think it's really nee-. I tend to believe it's more like god and then he uses me to influence people. But i think unless you're really willing to make changes like if you don't like the way you feel you don't like the way your life is going then you're the one that can change it now. I lied i guide. And i hope but people gotta do the work but you gotta do the works to change that. Well you know. And i preach on this all the time and i was preaching about it yesterday to a friend of mine about the importance of exercise to overcome depression. And just a lousy fair kind of. I don't know attitude that that sometimes leads to negative self talk right well. Yes it's proven. Research after research shows that physical movement and having a regular. I guess lifestyle what i would say. Fitness and exercise is one of the leading ways to overcome anxiety and leading ways to overcome depression. That is you know i i. I don't think i would be saying without the without the exercise i've done throughout my whole life I started in my. I think it was like twenty two. And i decided you know what i'm going to start working out every day and it was a game changer. For me a total game changer. So why do so. Many of us have negative self talk and others are positive. I know you touched down at already. That some of it is just like you know part of our dna if you will or genetic or what we're exposed to by our parents but what.

"Well. How definitely for the feeling triad. So that's twos threes and fours. Part of me feels like it's a pretty good movie for nine. Oh yeah nines could relate and it has this like quality of coziness You know and certainly over the years right. It's become a tradition now. So that's even more but i think there's something like inspiring for nine and for four's there's something corrective inspiring for nines corrective for force. It helps me every year like it. Reorients me. I think i would say as a four. Yeah every year. Not just like this. The reason for the season which is there but also just the. Get out of your head moment. You know you always get the blues. It's a great question i get. Yes is the short answer are but i also get like. I just get expectation. I think i've talked about this in previous christmas specials like i get like frustrated with expectations. That aren't met. Or i get was fre weirdly enough counter-intuitively enough easier this year like it's not that bad this year because i have zero expectations super low expectations and frankly like it just. This is just kind of coincidental but like most of the things that are really important to me are super possible. Yes year like my kids to christmas. Parties is not a thing. I care about but taking my kids to drive around. Look at christmas lights to like two other things. I don't know like we have plenty of time to watch every like this year. We've been watching. I think we've already watched. Maybe eight christmas movies over the course of like two weeks at like. We're watching every christmas movie. We can get our hands on and that just makes me really happy but the flip side of that is. There's a christmas movie. I really wanted to watch them. We didn't get a chance to then. I'm going to be frustrated corner Just be grumpy. Like the reality of me or charlie brown is a mad and which is really like superficial sadness basically so yeah. I think charlie brown shows some of that too right like some some grumpiness in that show man. I'm just going to say. I really love this show. I just love it. I love this special. It is by is my all time. Favorite christmas special and the truthfulness of it is what i love. And as even as we're talking. I'm like picking up on other things which is like the way it broadens. Charlie brown's perspective throughout the episode. It's real you mentioned how short it is. It is an incredibly short thing but short. It's stunning how danced is there is a lot there to think about..

"Brought back from the last season and We're going to apply it to these characters yup. I think there's really just one one problem here in this charlie brown. Yeah charlie brown being sad being depressed. But i mean he did get psychiatric help from i mean we could go into life advice into his relationship with lucy. Which is. I'm just going to say one word and its boundaries he's boundaries with lucy. He's to cut her off. Cut toxic people out of your life hundred percent cut her out because the else has bullying all of that stuff. But she is one hundred percent toxic like And she does just enough to get to that point where he trusts are a little bit. And this yanks the ball away. Yeah she's charlie brown just break up with lucy or whatever you gotta do dump her leave her in the snow brown. Snow the brown snow the pig. No yeah was there. You wanna talk about bit. Not being sad charlie round. Oh yeah maybe we can help pig pen. I don't know he just needs to take a shower. I mean it's pretty simple with the. Yeah cody franson well through the. I don't think that the movie addresses his sadness through the lens of the any graham. I don't think so either. Work cut out for us. Yeah yeah i mean. I think to some extent it is true that fours when provided with clarity and like like perspective is big for a four perspective is really big for four getting outside of yourself and frankly lucy is totally face and her prodding him to do something for other people even in a really interesting thing in the show which is give him a leadership role which i still don't really understand like like she seemed she doesn't even treat it like you better not screw this up. She just gives him the director role as a matter of fact bang and matter of fact best you said as a matter of fact. Yeah and and it's striking to me. It makes me wonder like. Is this a situation where the aid is just like. Just go do the thing you need to do. And it seems mean in the moment. It seems a little presumptuous in bossy but actually is like the right thing for charlie brown to do in that moment which is basically direct all of his energies outside of himself into the picture and into the stage play heard vice really was actually do agree with it like do things for other people do things outside of yourself that is solid advice but still cut her out she is toxic. Yeah that's a trick. Rights is doing one. Nice thing for you. So you'll have to be indebted to your. She'll be like. But i made you put you in charge. Yeah any other life advice. No all right.

But actually there's a different side to this so i guess i could see it that way. There was something really striking to me about seeing linus as a five because just the pure raw knowledge and the value of that had never occurred to me before right and win. Charlie brown is all wrapped up in his feelings and convinced that everyone hates him. Lionesses perspective is. That doesn't matter you know. His perspective is that doesn't matter. Here's the here's the big picture. And he drops it. But i could see i could see a non doing the site nine. Absolutely would do that and he would have five. Just always be there all the time following him around a really good point. Yeah it's a really good. So they're like and he's a buddy and he's he just he hangs out with us so nice brown and he's just there and i think five would be like Your feelings are a lot for me. And i'm gonna go home so you don't think a healthy though there's something about a healthy five right. The just says the truth right. Yeah yeah. thank nonce.

"Because there's not any graham types. you'll get that joke. You yeah all right. We both decided that we would do this. Not on the air like come up with our nine words not on the air because there's nothing more boring listening to people say i'm a lot and try to think of things. Yeah and then like edit sentences like goodness. So i have mine. You have yours. We're doing. Charlie brown's christmas i. What are you have as your words for nine. Nine words of charlie brown is sad about christmas and wonders. Why ooh that's good. I like that open ended thing i struggled with whether to include the ending in these and by the way like probably probably we're going to spoil everything. We talk spoiler alert for everything. I don't want to have to worry about spoilers. Just why would you listen to it if you haven't watched it yet. Just watch it so in determining whether or not i go from beginning to end or just said the setup i basically just decided whatever fits the artistry what. I'm trying to do so in this. One i did boy is sad but he just needed a reminder. That's mine isn't it crazy that there's a christmas special where the entire plot is. A boy is sad and it's it's an iconic christmas special. it's the one it's belt one. Yeah yeah it was. I can't remember the last time. I ever watched charlie brown christmas so i was watching it with new eyes. And wow it was a lot as you like it. I did. I think so. Yeah i did when you say it was lot i mean. That's that's what does that very strong very strong first of all. You don't see a lot of things where it's like a child dealing with seasonal depression like he's literally is like using the word depressed and he's like i am depressed and i don't know why that's not a very common thing that you see and the anti like commercial is like theme throughout can also just say like the extent of the meanness of his friends. They are brutal is really hard to yes. I was shocked. It was unbelievable. Yeah but it felt very away. It felt real. It's almost like that's how he feels about. How people were reacting like the moment when they all laugh at his dumb tree And they call him names one after the other felt like a nightmare Like felt like a nightmare moment and the show like it didn't feel exactly grounded in reality but it felt real right. It felt like it was truthful to what he was thinking and the ending was so it was just such a sharp like pivot from all treated him like crap the entire movie and then at the very last second. They're literally like you blockhead. Charlie brown and then they then they're all friends and so on. It's very weird. It's very weird and it's hard to explain like why anything is happening. And i actually like watch this for the first time through the length of the nba graham this year. And i've watched this every year. Like is by far my favorite movie and i think we'll talk about why but like watching this. Look i'm just gonna let the cat out of the bag. I've always felt the charlie brown was four. I think everyone sees this coming. that is. that's big fact. I was bowled over by some other.

They don't know we talked about. They don't know how smart you are. How astute you are. When you call and you come up with on what? Really start start thinking, you know, And now I know you're upset about the election. Totally hijacked, totally ripped apart the whole thing. What you think when you say you follow the pandemic as it goes into Trying all they all they want to do. They could care less about getting a vaccine. They could care less about you and I getting better. They could all they wanted to shut us down and get President Trump out of office and it ain't over yet. It ain't over yet. Mayor Giuliani's coming on the show. Immediately on the they They've just gone. So after Mayor Julian just he's got some things to say. You may want to tune in and the nine o'clock hour with Mayor Giuliani because you can't stop fighting. You can't stop me. And even if Joe Biden is in, you can't stop fighting. We've got to get what in the name of God, are we sending voting machines or voting results? With foreign countries and what's the South American connection? And I don't think we've heard the last of Sidney Powell either. I'll say that right now I'm like this is we was some folks. I think she's right on top of it, and I think she's going to come out and it's getting even if it comes out. Better late than never. It's got to be war that we've got to change it and no ever ever again, just like you said no more mail in voting. No more. Just don't you can't do it. It's it's fraud. It just reeks fraud. And the president said it may be the only one I think gets me upset is that the diabolic demonic Democrats, you know they're there, and there's a group that I just so mean. They knew what was going on and they beat. They kind of they stole the election Fair and square. That's that's the phrase I have. They went in. They knew those dealing it You feel calm. They were to calm. You don't keep your candidate in the basement. You just don't get you do not do that. And they did, and they got away with it. They knew what was happening, and other people get upset with some of the folks in the campaign around President Trump that they didn't see it coming. He saw it coming, and it reminded me of when we what we Patriots had the house. At the end of the Senate, the House and the White House. There were two years there. You forget, right? President Trump puts everybody in office Paul Ryan's running things in the house. It's a mess they like they were against the president. And despite it all, the president accomplished more in 3.5 years in any other president in history in history, Yes, in history, you know, that was good things that were good for United States. And that and the Republicans are like sometimes President Trump's worst enemy. This is my opinion, By the way, they should have stepped up. They should have seen this. But the Republicans aren't good at mean. They're not good at me. Oh, Democrats got it down to an art form. Oh, they're good. They're good. They could tell you things they'll go do impeach the president, and there's nothing there and then all and I guess because they have the press in their back pocket when they do the impeachment. And there's nothing there and it's a laughing stock in an embarrassment, the biggest hoax and political history. Do you think that stop them? They go on, they go on a people still listen to them. Yeah, and listen to them and say Oh, and and they bring your biting out and the press still goes on. Doesn't even apologize. There. Don't apologize yet..

Roll Over Beethoven

Classics for Kids

Roll Over Beethoven

"Hello I'm. Naomi. lewin welcome to classics for kids. For some reason, maybe because he was such a genius, Beethoven seemed to be the butt of jokes than any other composer. Not all the jokes have to do with music but some. Your parents and grandparents probably know the song roll over Beethoven. Chuck, Berry originally made it popular back in the nineteen fifties this version by electric light orchestra even quotes Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. That's not the only popular song to use Beethoven's fifth. A disco hit from the seventies is even named for a fifth of Beethoven. It's no joke than in World War Two. Beethoven's fifth took on a whole new meaning back. Then important messages were still sent by Telegraph using Morse Code and dictate the DOT is Morse code for the letter. V. After British Prime Minister Winston Churchill declared a campaign called V for victory. Of The BBC British public radio started playing the first four notes of Beethoven's fifth before all news bulletins. A. Beethoven. Never married but after he died someone found a very passionate letter, he had addressed to my immortal beloved. No one knows who the immortal beloved might have been but turns up in. Beethoven joke that takes the fifth. The joke goes that the immortal beloved was threatening to leave Beethoven because he didn't pay enough attention to her Beethoven said, that's ridiculous. You are everything to me. You're my life you're my inspiration and she looked at him and said me. Everything your life your inspiration ha ha. and. Then there's the joke about a man who's wandering through a cemetery in Europe and stumbles on Beethoven's grave. He's very surprised to see Beethoven sitting up in his coffin furiously erasing his music. So he asks excuse me Mr Beethoven what on Earth Are you doing and Beethoven snaps back can't you see? I'm decomposing. Bits of Beethoven also turn up in amusing ways in movies, and that's not even counting the movie about the dog named Beethoven and the sequels Beethoven's second and Beethoven's third. The Beatles one of the most famous rock bands ever made a movie called help that uses Beethoven's music. When the Drummer Ringo gets trapped by a snarling tiger from a German zoo, his friends tell him. Off To do is famous Van Hoven famous. Got Up on talk. and Beethoven puts him appearances in musical theater to. All through the music man, the phony professor Harold Hill claims he could teach kids to play musical instruments using the think method. The PC wants them to think is Beethoven's MINUET IN G lie down. A. Live. My favorite use of Beethoven in musical theater comes from you're a good man Charlie Brown based on characters from the peanuts comicstrip. One of them is the piano playing Schroeder who idolizes Beethoven as Schroeder plays Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata Lucy tries desperately to get his attention, but you can tell it's not going to work. I'm sure Beethoven would be amazed at all the places he's popped up.
