Why AJ Is the King of 'Six Degrees of Separation'
"Now I'm laughing here because many of you have jumped on the 6° of AJ benza thing. And some of your desires to see how, if I can match up with these celebrities, well, they're pretty funny. Some of you threw me a few curve balls that seemed hard to hit, but with a little work and some hard thinking, I was able to connect everyone to me within less than 6 moves. Now that was some easy ones in there. I got to admit you got to remember the trick to this game is not how well an actor I was. That's not it at all. I'm no You just gotta have good connectors. And I happen to have good connectors, for instance, I'm only two moves away from Kevin Bacon, having worked with Steve Guttenberg and Steve Guttenberg made Dina with Kevin Bacon. Two moves, I'm with bacon. I have good connectors. I can use guys like the Steve Gutenberg, who's appeared in way over a hundred movies and TV shows. And since he's been in films like police academy, which has had so many different what's the word sequels. Not to mention so many stars, he alone takes me to a ton of people. And on top of that, he made cocoon with Jung cronin and Jessica Tandy to act as from another era, they can connect me to almost anyone since Charlie Chaplin for God's sake. That's just luck on my part. Working with Sylvester Stallone puts me with anyone who ever worked with him in the rocky franchises. They Rambo franchise. The expendable franchise. And now, because he has worked in the Marvel Universe, I'm connected to that place as well.

"So I think it's a class two differential chart or something like that. So it's interesting to me that you and I would have thought that that would have had an impact on my health. So I would have thought that having such a differentiate chart might have implications for health later on. But it doesn't seem to have been the case for me. And it's certainly at the time that we were doing that course. It seemed to have some kind of effect on Charlie Chaplin if I was if I remember correctly that his differentia of chart meant that they were, but again, it's all about medical technology and the rescues that we can have. I mean, I've had my panic start. I've had various other little things that might have complicated the issue. Being part of that initial protection, I'm not sure. Right. That makes sense. Where are things headed in the future in terms of fertility astrology? What sort of research is coming up? What sort of things if you had unlimited time and unlimited research potential or clients or what have you, would you like to see or take it in the future in terms of either your own private work or in terms of where you could seek things going with this decades into the future? Gosh. So yeah, let's just start with Pluto going into a queries. So queries being the 11th house. Yeah, I was going to say, as an Aquarius rising, let's not go there, but go ahead. The 11th house of the anima mundi and this is kind of my partner's children. So I wonder, I strongly believe that we are going to head into another roe versus wade forevermore scenario where we are talking about the viability of life itself when life begins, the rights of a fetus, the rights of the so just the environment is going to be more about fertility rights is basically and reproductive rights. I think we're going into it and it's going to be, I don't think less legislation and things can be more legislation. I'm not sure which way it's going to end up. But anyway, I see that on the horizon. And that means what does that mean for fertility astrologers? Well, it means that, for instance, there are now trying to shut down, for instance, surrogacy programs in India. With the idea that women in India are being exploited. And part of the problem I have for that is that those women that is they are very often women that have been left by their husbands so they have Epstein no other means of schooling their children feeding themselves and for them this is not a hardship. This is a they are considered themselves lucky that they could do this, but the western first world countries has determined that they are being exploited. So they're shutting down those programs. So if not India, then where are we going to go? So I think those kinds of legislations about who can do surrogacy, how much it's going to cost. And that's going to come into play. And that will make more and more people desperate, and that will make more and more people are very vulnerable themselves to scammers and exploitation. I think that we are headed for a period where my children are in their 30s now and their friends and at least one of my children has said, well, they're not sure about having their own children. And it's because they see this whole climate change in the world that we've created for them. They're finding it difficult and they're finding it a challenge to provide for themselves and then to provide for children and they take the responsibility of having children quite seriously. So they are looking at it quite seriously. So I suspect that we're going to have a lot of people who gain to think like that and then at the very last minute they're going to come in at 42 and they're going to be phoning me and saying, I thought I didn't want but now I do. So there's going to be a bit of that. I mean, that's really interesting thing in terms of people's life narrative. People not wanting children at one stage in their life, but later going through some sort of transitive progression or something and changing their mind and suddenly wondering if it's too late or if it's still a possibility. You know, I think every new relationship that one has brings with it like its own sort of blossoming or emergent emerging thing that we do together. So I think what happens is that especially with this generation of 30 year olds, they have had it's been very passing to me basically because old as I am, I think I've had more sex in them. They go to festivals, they hook up, but they don't form relationships, they're very abstemious. They're quite discerning. And they rather operate on quite a shallow level and they communicate on Instagram. And so as a result, their relationships are very, for me, at least, and this is a casino that talking a little bit distorted in a way and not really building a future together. So there's lots of options. So there's lots of browsing and scrolling of options. But no sort of like we're in this together. So I see that until that happens. Somebody, when you love somebody, and when you are your life, you've decided to merge your life story. For some people and not saying for everybody, for some people, there is this, it's that ultimate act of recreating oneself or recreating something jointly, which is all encompassing. And

"Do I know them from? Because the context gives you the content. And we remember things in places. So think about where the joke takes place. Can you use a specific place that you are familiar with? If the joke takes place in a bar in a classroom in a doctor's office, it helps for you to visualize a bar a classroom, a doctor's office that you are personally familiar with. So in the previous examples, you could set the stage. Maybe the couples were at a cafe and you could imagine a cafe that you are familiar with. When you cast the role and you set the context, your joke now becomes more of a story and most people remember stories they hear and aren't jokes mostly stories with a punch line. Let's do one more one more joke. This one goes something like this. An elephant was drinking out of a river one day when he spotted a turtle fast asleep on a log. So he an bulled over and kicked it clear across the river. What did you do that for as a passing giraffe? Because replied the elephant, I recognized it as the same turtle that took a nip out of my trunk 40 years ago. Wow, what a memory said the giraffe, yes, said the elephant, turtle, recall. Oh yeah, that was really bad. Okay. Tip number four, your final tip here, there are fourth C is chain link. Chain link, chain link, the key words. Chain linking as we teach in our quick recall program is a trick that some comedians will use to help them help them remember jokes that they've already learned. Specifically help remind them of jokes. The idea here is that your true memory remembers the joke because you've studied it. You just need a reminder or a trigger to bring up the key parts if you forget them. It's very much like forgetting most things your keys, a name, a speech, many times you just need a clue, then it all comes back to you. A chain link is not the joke itself, but provides very useful key reminders to trigger the actual joke. The process basically is to take the main keywords in the joke and chain link them together in a memorable way in this last example for instance, you could chain link and elephant river sleeping turtle and giraffe, and in your mind you connect the elephant in the river, the river to the sleeping turtle, see if turtle to giraffe, and it gives you scaffolding, if you will, to remember that joke in our quick recall program, we go very deep and using this technique to memorize very technical information from formulas to the periodic table for students in a fraction of the time in a way that's focused that's easy and that's fun. And so practice these four tips again, these four tips going through it and you could rehearse them in your mind and review them in your mind because that helps quick tip number one is categorize mentally file the joke. Quick tip number two is cast, which is fill the role of the joke. Quick tip number three is context, which is set the stage and quick tip number four is chain link chain link, the key words, the key ideas. And use this in your jokes will absolutely be unforgettable. If you want more memory training, I invite you to join our intensive memory program.

"charlie chaplin" Discussed on Filmspotting
"In fact, it did make my top 5 movie flight scenes, a lot of groundbreaking special effects for 1939. It also made years ago a top 5 we did breaking up the boys club. Jean Arthur, obviously the character doing that in this great film, which is available on the criterion channel, but Amazon Prime iTunes and voodoo as well. Can I add another one to this category? Please do. Adventure. So you mentioned Errol Flynn in captain blood, which is just fantastic. I have always loved him in adventures of Robin Hood as well. I can remember this was when I was really young, but those who grew up around Chicago maybe recall. I think it was on WGN. There would be family classics, and they were usually Sunday afternoons. I believe, which is when we were often at my grandparents house. So a lot of the times family classics would be put on, we'd plop in front and frequently it seems to me adventures of Robin. No kidding. And I got to watch Errol Flynn in those sword fights and some great action scenes and obviously all the charm as well. So yeah, really strong genre in the 1930s action and adventure. All right, so number two, well, Charlie Chaplin kind of had to be on this list because the 1930s held two of his greatest features, modern times, and city lights. Modern times is in my top ten of all time. So that's going to have to be my pick. The movies enduring relevance is why I value modern times so much. This story of Chaplin's little tramp and this was his last screen appearance as the tramp. Just watching this figure being gobbled up by the societal, the economic and the technological forces of labor. Certainly spoke to the years right after The Great Depression, but every time I watch it, whether it was 25 years ago or shortly after the 2008 recession or now in the tumult of today, it just seems to ring even truer. It's like, oh, the movie's about now. It was made then, but it's about now. And plus this has some of Chaplin's all time great visual gags, which never get old. The tramp frantically trying to keep up with an assembly line. That moment where he's stuck in a factory machines, giant gears, or even when he's trying to survive a meal via that monstrous feeding machine that keeps stuff in his face. So this is all brilliant comic material and set pieces, as I said, really still applies today. And modern times is streaming on the criterion channel, Amazon Prime, and you can find it via Canopy. So some overlap for us at number two, I have Charlie Chaplin as well, but I am going with his other masterpiece at least one more from the period city lights in 1931. It was his prior film to modern times. There was a 5 year gap between the two, but what a back to back set of movies. I think about this movie coming off of human bondage again, talk about it here in a little bit on the show, but it's the uplifting counter to a human bondage and that you've got a character, the tramp, who falls in love with, this blind girl, and kind of becomes obsessed with trying to help her. He finds out that she's going to be evicted. And even though he doesn't have any money himself, he tries to scrape together whatever he can eventually does come into some cash so that he can try to help them and maybe improve their lives. Now, I have a confession. I haven't seen modern times or city lights since 1998. I can't actually tell you which one I think is the better film. I'm going with city lights here because of my memories of it, especially that ending. And I'm not going to rehash my essays. I wrote back in 1998 when I took a class on silent comedy. They compared the films of Chaplin and Keaton. I could do it. We could get into the place of sentimentality in silent comedies like this and whether or not it truly belongs. I mean, that is the key distinction, really, between Chaplin and Keaton. Is that use of sentimentality? And I think it's why for a time. And maybe we're still in that time. It's become way more fashionable to prefer Keaton to chaplain because the sentimentality seems a little bit overdone, perhaps, or a little bit schmaltzy. And also, many people live, it's easy to do. You could argue that when you pull at the heartstrings a little bit, anybody is going to fall for that, whereas Keaton was more inventive and maybe more ambitious. That might be the case, but when you've got that perfect blend as I think you do here in city lights and in modern times of pathos and comedy, then that's chaplain at his Pinnacle. And of course, there's also that great element here as it is in modern times of social commentary. I mentioned the really famous ending of this movie, but what about the opening, right? Where he is riffing a little bit on the advent of talkies. This had happened three years earlier. He doesn't want to make the shift yet. Doesn't think cinema necessarily needs it. He can still tell his stories with the camera. And so he has a nod to that by having this big public forum where statues are being unveiled in honor of peace and prosperity and keeping in mind this is 1931. We know what period America is in. And yet there's this big civic display of everyone's benevolence. And basically paying tribute to themselves, all these wealthy people as they unveil this statute and when they talk when they make their speeches, there is sound, but it's like Charlie Brown parents talking, right? It doesn't matter what they're saying as far as Chaplin is concerned..

"Is up in our mock New York up to up your way Tim. I'm not quite so far north. But not too far away. So they said, look, we're known for mainframes. Let's send a small team of engineers down to Boca Raton. And they're going to design something. What was the code name for the original IBM PC? I'm trying to remember. Had a good code name. Project, let's see. Project chess, according. But I don't know if that was the code name for the original PC. Anyway, they designed it. You may remember the do you remember the ads for the IBM PC? Acorn was the acorn. Yep. Thank you. Charlie Chaplin remember these for the first, let me see if I can find one. Yeah, they're beautiful ads. While you're finding that, it's interesting that the low end model of the IBM PC had 16 kilobytes kilobytes. I just bought an iPad that has 16 gigabytes. I know. I know. And some consider that low. Charlie Chaplin was some of the original IBM PC ads. They were going after business. It didn't the base model, which was 1500 bucks did not have floppy disks for a hard drive, heaven for fend. It had a cassette interface and you would save your programs and your files up to cassette. They did offer if you were only to spend more. You could configure it all the way up to $5000. You could get dual floppies. No hard drive. There it is with the dual floppies. That big old CRT. You could either get it in color.

"It's 1.2. It gets its 1.61 .615, 1.625. So that would be really interesting then if the reason why Venus signifies beauty, for example, or aesthetic appeal that which is that we perceive as aesthetically appealing, ultimately boils down to a numerical reason. That's exactly what I'm saying. And there's no way to prove it. But it's like all the planets are in some way architectonic of some basic number something. Right. And so Venus making that aspect to earth being in that exact ratio to earth, Venus being the golden mean proportion to earth, and it representing everything that historically we've always ascribed to the golden mean. Beauty aesthetic perfection. You know, if a photographer knows that if they want to have a subject that's perfect in a picture, you don't want it halfway between the top and the bottom. You want it closer to two thirds. Why? Because two thirds is already closer to the golden mean because one plus one equals two, two plus one equals three, two thirds, three plus two equals 5. And you keep going down that 5 eighths and so on. And you get to all those things that are beautiful. It's kind of crazy. But when you start looking at the quintiles in someone's chart, you all of a sudden have a picture of the non physical dimension of where this person's creativity where their magic, where their charisma, where and you see strong quintiles in charts of artists and poets and philosophers and just even people with strong strong charisma, oddly enough, comedians again and again and again, show powerful quintile configurations, configurations, meaning more than just two planets one quintile or by quintile the other, but a third forming patterns that are on that 5 pointed star, then you see him in charge like John Cleese and Groucho Marx and Charlie Chaplin and harpo Marx and Woody Allen and I mean on and on and on and on. So and I know we've kind of slipped into the chart interpretation. I don't know whether we can do mature. I know you have some charts you wanted to show to demonstrate. Do you want to look at those right now? Do you want to take a little break or look at those right? What I would like to do first is just say a few words about the subtitles. Because the charts that I have by the handful of charts where we can look at them with the normal regular aspects, many of them will be charts that we've looked at that we might already be familiar with. And then I have a different version of that chart only showing the quintiles in subtitles and some of them are pretty shocking. Just by the by what comes across. But and the reason why I focus on the quintiles and subtitles in my research. And even in my consulting practice, is that they are the lower harmonics which theoretically are more fundamental. I mean anyone who has done any work in in harmonic analysis and vibrational astrology, which is David Cochran's rebranding if you will of John eddy's work. Knows that there's no end to what harmonic you can use. You can use the 125th harmonic, the 375th arm doesn't matter, because it's like an oscilloscope as you tune it, you'll get certain frequencies where all of a sudden it'll go really and all of a sudden you'll hit these points where everything seems to be in tune with everything else. Now, that certainly has taken the zodiac out of the picture. But I think that we will find that there's something there that is incredibly powerful that will feed into whatever it is that we do. But the reason, in particular, I focus on the 5s and the 7s, is that is that most of us use aspects that go up to the 12th harmonic. Most people obviously not strict Hellenistic astrologers who will not use the 12th harmonic. They're basically you're basically using the first second third, 6th harmonic. First second, first second, third, fourth and 6th. That's the 5 major. So the first is conjunction, second harmonic is opposition because there's two points, the third harmonic is trying because there's three points. And I have some actually, I meant to put some diagrams up that show those aspect patterns because that might be really helpful in this part of the discussion. Let me see if I can locate those. That's a yawed, which actually we should get into. Well, the odd is of very particular importance because again, people who have done a lot of NATO work and have looked at yards, just know how strong how powerful they are. Yeah, so there we have an effect what we would call a grand trine. But it's really just the third harmonic with planets at the tips of that third harmonic. Okay, so when you're talking about harmonic you're talking about three points and talking about the circle divided by three. Yeah, okay. Versus like a grand square, which is the circle divided by four. That's a fourth harmonic. And so the square is connected to the fourth harmonic. Now, hold that just for a second because in the fourth harmonic, we also have oppositions. But if you hated fractions, you're going to hate this. Because a fourth harmonic has the fourth is one quarter of a circle. One quarter is the fourth harmonic. But two quarters is a half. So you have the opposition that is not only the second harmonic, but it also falls on the fourth harmonic. Right. That makes sense. And, you know, one of the things, of course, that's nice in the way that this gets integrated the traditional system is that the two easier benefic aspects in the domicile that traditional rulership scheme when you.

"Kept out of the country and i think also part of the reason that he decides to stay in that sort of push it because i think he could have pushed back and said you know. I'm i'm going to try to get in and see what happens. But he sort of resigns himself and one of the things that he says that to me was so remarkable remarkable was really like you know talking about his dissatisfaction with the state of american politics and so he says whether i re entered that unhappy country or not was of little consequence to me. I would've liked to told them that sooner. I was rid of that. Hate beleaguered atmosphere the better. And that was fed up with america's insult and moral pomposity. So you know at this point. I mean chaplains pretty fed up. You know he's like fine. I don't i won't come back. You know and i don't want to come back to climate like this and so he stays on for pretty much the rest of his life but you know most of his property is still back in the united states to walk this line where he can't just fully cut ties because you know he's yeah i mean he's made his life and his business in the united states so You know privately. I think he's fed up as i think. A lot of people are public statement. He's yeah yeah. And i guess you know. We've talked about this before. Not just this era but with a lot of these sort of moments of persecution and panic and so forth but you know it's the chilling effect. That is really the thing here right. I mean in the end. There is not really any not that you could even do any real hard evidence of moral turpitude or communist sympathies or whatever but it's really this threat of inquiry and these rumors that really you know in the end. Those are the things that have an effect regardless of whether it's evidence to back it up or not. Yeah and i think for chaplain. It's like you know it's the betrayal for me. It's the it's the. I have been loyal to this country. I've made a home in this country. I have been in this country longer than he had in london. Or in britain. Great britain and so For him for for america to turn its back on him just eight really soured relationships and made it difficult for him to see america as his home and that's just turning their back on him by turning their back on his art as well. I mean the you mentioned the limelight was the film that he was going off to promote Which was very well received in europe and in the us it was basically blackballed there. Were boycotts of theaters across the country. They weren't showing his his movies So in a way like not only was he purged from the country but he was purged from the culture and so then he stays in away from in-exile basically for twenty years or so and then comes back in the in the seventies and then he dies in the late seventies but again he is in his eighties again. You can track so much of the story of the century of the twentieth century through charlie chaplin but as is the case in a lot of these incidents. We don't really get the full picture until documents. Declassified stuff starts to come out decades and decades later so it's really in the eighties nineties even into the two thousand that we start to see a declassification here. One of the things. We learn as i as i said before to reiterate is that they didn't really have hard evidence that would have barred him from coming back. I mean if he had applied to come back he probably would have gained reentry. It seems but again the goal was to. I think probably just have this chilling effect. Make him fed up and in the end he didn't come back. And so you know. I guess the fbi wins in that way in nineteen seventy two though he does. Come back to receive An oscar honorary award. He had been living in switzerland for a while. i think the oscars always come back. He comes back to get his award. But you know but so much has passed and it's also interesting that the climate has shift because when he comes to the stage to receive his honorary oscar. He gets a twelve minute standing ovation. So it lets you know that. Even though he was far away people were still thinking about him in the work that he had done in the contributions that he had made to. Hollywood yeah a lot easier to do thirty years later once. The fever has broken Well there was one other interesting. Find in the declassification in two thousand three the British foreign office declassified some of its records and it turns out that the person who knocked on charlie chaplin and saying he was a secret communist and a friend of the soviet union was george orwell. He had submitted this secret. Lists of secret communist to the secret government bureau. Which i have to say. It sounds pretty polly. There you go. Yeah that's that's. I had no idea about that. We might need to do a proper episode on even though it was in in england. But my god yeah george orwell writing out thirty five people including list is something else All right well. We can leave. Charlie chaplin there. I do want to do a few also on this days as we as we wrap up here so We're looking at september nineteenth here In eighteen eighty one. This is when james garfield died of his wounds so we did an episode of that a couple of weeks ago. That's how long james garfield lived after being shot and now he finally dies on september nineteenth We got an email from a listener. Colin who suggested an episode on this day in one thousand nine hundred five. When frank zappa john denver and dee snider appeared in front of the senate to defend artistic freedom as an incredible moment We gotta look back into that and find another reason to talk about zappa denver and dee snider Not the pairing. You often see in musical list. And perhaps i think maybe not the most convincing group. Maybe don denver. Maybe the senate was was sympathetic to john denver. But i don't know if that happened. He's not really you know. They were extremely eloquent in their defense of musical freedom. Frank zappa very very smart and two thousand ten. This is the day that the bp oil well spill finally came to an end They put a cement plug over the top of it My one take on the bp oil spill was that that was the moment that like september twenty. Ten was one of the moments for me. When i started to feel like oh there's too much news in the world. And i just remember the oil spill and there were like five or six other things going on but there was this a stretch in two thousand ten twenty seven. Which now no coincidences sort of. When the rise of twitter was coming along. But i like how can there be this many major stories to try and keep up with any any given moment So that's my kind of want bigger. Thought that i might twenty ten. It was one of those things that absolutely tortured the obama administration because they could not saab feel and cable. News just had video of oil spilling into the gulf every single moment of every single day. It was rough spell for that administration. Yeah for sure. And then i think what. It was shortly thereafter. The arab spring took off and then it was like fukushima was. It was just like this thing where it's like. It's being the origin moment when the opened there you go. That's a good all right.

"Of the sort of many phases of charge happens life. I mean as you look at him. I mean no surprise. Many many books have been written many documentaries. But you know this is one of those characters through which you feel like you could tell the entire story almost of twentieth century america So we're focused in this moment here in the in the late forties early fifties. But you know. Nicosia just have any thoughts on chaplain in general and kind of like what his story says about us. I mean we've skipped over one point in his career. He you have silent film slapstick star and then you have the persecuted communist sympathizer but you know in nineteen forty. He makes this film called the great dictator Which is kind of an tearful film rate. He's he's as strong anti fascist. He's coming out against The hitler regime. I guess you know you have the moustache already. You play the character of hitler. In this in this spoof comedy. It's a comedy but then it ends with this big dramatic speech in defense of democracy. And that's a really interesting moment to look back on today but it also gets him even more on the radar the fbi he'd been on the fbi's radar since the fbi was founded And they were suspicious of him because he hung out with people who they considered to be radicals And you know over thirty years. They amassed quite a file on him and by nineteen fifty two they kick them out and it's crazy because i think that a lot of people don't even realize that charlie chaplin was not american. You know a heat becomes such a a major celebrity and a household name that when it comes time for him to come back to the states. People are sort of like wait. Charlie chaplin's not american british. So i think. I think that's a huge part of the story as well as what happens when you have these major celebrity's that become a part of pop culture in ways that it becomes difficult to see charlie chaplin as a foreigner. Yeah which well two things so one is. I suppose it's easier to have people not realize you are british if you're a silent film so part of it And then also you know to your point. you know. there's this question. He's not american but the question. A hand is unamerican. right he's an american star He has made his name in this country. He is in this moment. Returning to england for the first time in a long time action. He has some really interesting sort of thoughts in this moment about the united states versus england particularly in this moment in the early fifties But then yes. The fbi is starting to ask some questions about him. Hoover starting to ask some questions about that. That great dictator which was in one thousand nine forty. So you know. We're talking now about a decade plus of charlie chaplin as sort of like outspoken political. Figure but that film the great dictator. I mean first off. The lampooning of hitler was such a huge statement and moment in sort of cultural political sense. But then you know the reactions to that are just so resonant for now. because there's you know you you have the whole like colin kaepernick like stick to sports thing. People were basically saying. Charlie like stick to comedy right and saying no wants this here. You preach about real issues the end of your fun films or whatever and you just read these coats and they're so resonant but it's also really interesting to me that the thing that gets hoover to say wait. This person might be a radical is standing up to hitler this really fascinating kind of thing of like that's the that's the thing that makes you worry but yeah episode on why hoover is the worst. Might tell the whole the whole history of america after everyone so many beloved people but for the most sort of superficial or or you know shallow reasons we should say but that his his intent upon like targeting you ruins people's careers it ruins people's lives so when we think about this moment i'm thinking in the nineteen and fifties. I'm thinking about how. Hollywood is completely on edge because of the fear of being blacklisted. I think about paul roberson. Who has his passport taken away as well. You know charlie. Chaplin is not alone in this in this targeting. But i think it just goes to show you that no one was sort of above the frame giving around. You know hoover's clause if he if he wanted to target you and chaplain was targeted in that. Nineteen forty seven attack on hollywood. I think we've talked before about the hollywood ten and their trial But chaplin wasn't blacklisted. Because he was actually in a more independent position. He's he's got two sources of independence one. He's not a us citizen. He's a british citizen But to that he is part of the ownership structure of united artists So he can't be blacklisted. Because he's a part owner of the studio that's making his films and that economic security and that ownership provides him with a layer of protection that so many of the people who are blacklisted. Didn't have so eventually. The blocking the deportation are blocking his entry. Back into the. Us is their work around for all of these forms of independence that he has he was subpoenaed to appear before Who act the house. Unamerican activities committee he did not actually testify there. But yes so that brings us to this moment in fifty two. He travels on september seventeenth to europe to promote a new film limelight. You know. I think it is worth just saying like his popularity has waned a little bit. He's still charlie chaplin. But you know he's not as famous or notable and some people attribute that to his being a little more political or outspoken. But i think it's just you know. Culture changes and so forth nonetheless. Still a big star travelling to europe to promote his new film limelight. It was his first visit. Back to england in twenty one years the one of the last things he says when he gets on a boat to go versus. I'll probably be back in six months or so but not not any longer than that. Of course it ends up. Being almost twenty years in part because us attorney general james mccranie orders that ins to look into chaplain and see whether he will be re admitted into the united states and the justification for this inquiry was that there is law. That can bar- aliens on the grounds of quote morality health or insanity or for advocating communism yet. And i think that moral turpitude part of it is actually an important part of the discussion. Because part of the reason that his popularity wains in the nineteen forty s. He's caught in the midst of this scandal where he has a relationship with a woman in her early twenties and she ends up getting pregnant and he's kind of over the relationship she's talking about it the tabloids and there is this sense that he is the very constricted sexual mores of the era like someone who is not morally upright and this does cost him some popularity with his fans at the same time. He's making movies. That are kind of anti war in anti nuclear weapons and those the politics and the questions of sexuality and morality are all smooshed together during this era and so just like you have people who are being investigated. Because they're gay and there'd be that's considered a sign of communist. Leanings of his relationships are under a microscope as well and so that's all together for chaplain and becomes part of the reason that he is.

"You think your boss is watching you at work. Monitoring your every move well if your manager is a series of cameras sensors and algorithms. Then you're not wrong. And that may also mean you work at an amazon fulfillment center. The company known for the detailed tracking of packages and user. Information is also tracking the movements of workers at its warehouses looking to precisely measure efficiency and increase productivity wall street. Journal's tech columnist christopher mims calls this bazo schism named after amazon founder jeff bezos. He's got an upcoming book about it called arriving today from factory to front door why everything is changed about how and what we buy any joins me now. Hi christopher hay zoey. Thanks for having me so christopher you coined the term bazo schism. What exactly does that mean so. Basis ism is the combination of sensors and software to measure. How well somebody is doing their job. And then use software which has of course logic or an algorithm in it which was defined by an engineer. Somewhere to then tell that worker okay. You're doing a good job or you're not doing a good job or you need to be doing this differently. And so bazo. Schism or management by algorithm or management by software. At the end of the day it is just about creating a set of rules and then handing it to a machine to enforce those roles so the person's boss is software. Okay can you tell us about some of those metrics. That amazon is gathering maybe give an example of how one of them works so the primary metric is just the rate at which somebody is doing something so the amount of time it takes them to complete any of the relevant tasks picking items off the shelf scanning them.

"charlie chaplin" Discussed on Now Playing - The Movie Review Podcast
"I mean i don't think katie she's got all of this. Backstory will meet her family. They're very judgy about how unaccomplished she is. She obviously has guilt about that. But i don't feel like it. I didn't get the story. If it's the blip i don't know why it feels like the blip is mentioned just to us what point we're in in the emc. You i mean if you're going off of if this was all coming out when it was supposed to. Our last film was a flashback film. So you might be confused when this cianci take place after we saw black widow. I'm not quite sure when it takes place but it takes place after the game at some point in time. Katie's big backstory the thing that we get very loudly as one day going to make her family proud but she's just not there yet emotionally and i like aquafina in these scenes with the family. You know chist the sarcastic put upon and there's just a couple of angles here. Where moms leg. She's not ready and she's walking across the hallway in the background. I'm just having fun with family. Seen it makes me sad. We don't see this family again. You should watch the fear. Well then it's aquafina. But do you like sean in these scenes again. This is a movie. Set him up. And i'm feeling op stealing his spotlight. I'm like him. I liked the way. He interacts with the grandma. You know these are saved the cat moments right. He's so nice to the grandma and talking about the grandfather who's passed away coming back for whiskey and fun and we're setting him up as the quote unquote good guy and to be honest. I'm surprised how fast as movies moving because we spent about ten minutes in the past with when wu and then we've spent about seven minutes in the present with katie and sean then katie says we gotta get going. We're going to miss our bus. And i'm like oh shit. I know the scene from the trailer. We're already at this big bus fight. Seventeen minutes into the film. I mean that's what you want. Isn't it like this is a marvel film. let's get. The action is what i wanted but i was shocked at the efficiency at the efficiency of the expense of shanxi again. I haven't heard you say in any of these moments. I hear you judging me for saying. Why don't you like this guy. I didn't hear you say that he's done anything like command the screen well. He's about to because the fight moves he's going to pull off on this bus damn impressive. This is when he steps up understand. We've had six minutes with this character where he's supposed to be the background slacker. Who has even less ambition than aquafina. He's happy to be aquafina follower in these scenes and when some thugs come up to him and try to steal his necklace on a bus. You're supposed to think that he's just gonna take it. But of course we know we have the dramatic irony coming in this shonky. He's a bad ass and here. he's going to make his first big impression and does so in a great way for me. And i know you don't want flashbacks. I don't want anymore flashbacks in this. But i know you want a little action scene to pull the audience in at the beginning and maybe all this drama with aquafina family wouldn't be a big draw but wouldn't this via bigger surprise if we didn't get that first ten minutes of exposition. Like have that come in later that we really did think this was just some slacker. Because i'm not surprised when he starts pulling off these moves. We just saw his back story. I don't think we'd be surprised anyway. We saw the trailer. Yeah but if you're looking at it as a film like i think this would catch people off guard if all of a sudden this slacker is pulling these great moves. I got a little confused by this. I'll be honest to me. It was playing a little bit like chuck like it was playing like even shawn didn't know he was a martial artist. It was the magic green jade necklace. That was suddenly giving him the like again. I'm looking at this as a jewelry movie. And i'm like oh boy like you just put on things and suddenly you got fighting abilities. No no no i. When he woke up and we saw his morning montage his ripped body at his push ups routine. Let me know this was a guy who was still working out and staying in shape and training. I saw a kung fu hustle poster on his wall. He's under the martial arts. But i agree. Arnie this is a great fight scene. Great martial arts scene there's long takes. It's not quick cuts which really drives me crazy because that means no one has any talent when it comes to fighting here are people that actually know what they're doing. oh. I love the shot outside the bus. Where like the camera is going. The pace the bus except sean is walking backwards through the bus at so the cameras following him. I do appreciate this old boy style. Hallway fight scene and he's doing double dragon like flying kicks. And you know what it's reminding me of is kind of like jackie chan. Because he's using his coat as a weapon. He does jacket move. That is a total. Jackie chan movie. I thought that too. I love jackie chan. Movies love love love. Jackie chan martial arts. Go listen to our rush hour. Retrospective to hear me. Gush about how much i love. Jackie chan and. I'm getting that vibe here and really enjoying it too. You're really feeling like you're watching. Jackie chan onscreen. Yes wow okay well. You're explaining me why you're so passionate about defending this guy i. It's probably no surprise where you guys to realize that. I'm watching the scene. Shrugging do you like jackie chan. Do you like martial arts films where it's like that. Jackie chan to me. You're saying that. That is charlie chaplin that he is going to do these hilarious stunts. Where like he's really there almost falling off a building but playing it like slapstick. I don't feel this feels like an amusement park ride. It feels like there's a bus that's been built the tilt a lot and there's blue screen work and we have somebody that's competently jumping in and out of the windows. I don't doubt that any of that was the case stewart but these people actually know what they're doing well as far as the fighting moves. Go again this is not stuff. I've seen in another marvel film before at this point. However many films in were into with this franchise like anything new. I'm gonna appreciate. I did catch some moments of blue screen. When shot is on top of the bus. Yeah the blue screen was obvious but a. I'm not going.

"They got him back for a academy honorary thing. I never thought he'd come back to that. But he did anyway. He then went on to London, where he was promptly knighted and settled there for a few days on his way to Switzerland. A few days after they were there. Uh, we, my wife and I found, uh, had a message that you know, Charlie's wife was coming back for a little bit and mutual friends. We're giving a dinner to which we were invited. So we went. I was so eager to say, you know you're coming to get the money. But I didn't. Oh, but she was She was coming back for that. He got the million and went back The next day. She was there for, like, three days. Something like whatever. Yeah. Wow and got the million There was buried at the studio. Oh, not at the house. It was not 1000 Wow, buried in the studio. He buried a million dollars of the studio Charlie Chaplin. What a great story. Yeah. Oh, my gosh. Norman Lloyd, an amazing guys that I just really feel like when you have a chance to talk to someone like that. And by the way, he was in dead Poets Society. I mentioned train wreck the Apatow film with Amy Schumer. He did murder, she wrote. He did modern family episode Star Trek. The next generation A couple of people texted in, so he was all over the place and, of course, saying elsewhere, he played Uh, doctor, Daniel Ashe Lander on ST elsewhere and by the way he was supposed to on that show ST Elsewhere. He had cancer show The Auslander role was only supposed to be a limited time run, And then he's supposed to pass away on the series from You know his cancer and he became so popular That the character went on for six years, and they called it the longest remission on record. That's amazing, So he was just, uh, marvelous guy with that sense of humor, and you can see that, you know, he has this way to tell a story and such, you know. Iconic figures that populate all of his stories from Orson Welles to Charlie Chaplin to Alfred Hitchcock. I mean, it's just amazing it really quite a guy. Yeah, I mean, there's a he's talking about Charlie Chaplin and you know, there's a Charlie Chaplin Museum, a silent film museum and Niles. Right, Right. I think Albert mentioned that to me this morning. Yeah, Highly recommended fact. It's a great uh, you know what? You know. Post pandemic hop on the Niles Canyon train. Take it to Niles and tour the museum. Grab an ice cream Gonna head back and say it's a lot of fun. But when he talks it, you know, it's funny. I was thinking about the the He was making comments about how Charlie Chaplin was not only the most famous actor in the world, it's one thing to be a box office star We had Elliot Gold on with who is also a friend of Norman's actually always see Alec Golden Norman Lloyd at breakfast together, Okay, and Elliott Gould was the number one box office star in the world in the seventies for a period in the seventies. I want to say, maybe five years maybe it wasn't that long, but it was, you know a chunk of time, but For him to say no, no. Charlie Chaplin wasn't the number one box office star in the world. He was the most famous man in the world because silent movies made Charlie Chaplin so big that they could take the silent movie. And you could add all of the lettering since there's no dialogue in the language that that movie was then shown exported to in the language for the country. It was exported to show made it easier. Okay, So Charlie Chaplin was truly an international star. Because all of his material could be seen everywhere. There was no language barrier ever. And as a result, he became this guy who couldn't go anywhere in the world without being mobbed. And he became a good friend of of Norman's. And the last thing I'll say about Norman because he mentioned this as I say. We played tennis together. You know, early on. I met him in a tennis tournament actually met him at tennis tournament originally. At Stanford. Okay here in the Bay area, right? Yeah. Yeah, they It was the cystic fibrosis tennis tournament, and, uh and Norman and I and and his Norman's wife. We shared a car back up to the city anyway. He told me this story. Are you seriously? Yeah, while Oh, yeah, It was really cool. So, uh, he said that at the time there was the Biggest, um Tennis player in the world was a guy named Bill Tilden. Okay, I can hear listeners turning off the radio right now. No, no, This is fascinating in me know, anyway, this this dude was like he was like the Roger Federer of the time. Okay. Bill Tilden. Amazing. And in long pants they used to play in long pants. Her Wimbledon, You know, remember, Anyway, he came out or it came out that he was gay. Okay. Bill Tilden, this number one tennis player. As I say. You know, the tennis player number one in the world, uh, and because he was gay, and because of the stigma associated with being gay and the world at that time. He couldn't get any of the lessons or appearances or any of the ways that he would sustain himself. And the only person who backed him who supported him was Charlie Chaplin and Norman Lloyd was telling me the story and he said I met Bill Tilden. At Charlie Chaplin's home because Charlie had a tennis court and Bill was lamenting the fact Bill Tilden was that he couldn't teach tennis anywhere. No one would let him on their property. But Charlie Chaplin said, Bill as long as I'm alive, you will have a place to to teach for free here every day every hour of every day forever, and Tilden needed that. But it also spoke to who Charlie Chaplin was. You know what he believed, and It was just I remember being quite moved by that story. You know, as Norman told it, and and and by the way, he said, Norman said he met Bill told him that that was where he met him at Charlie Chaplin's house. So we just It was a great time to be alive. And Norman Lear was Norman Lear was alive for that. And then he stayed alive up until this week as he passed away at 106. Years of age. So amazing. No. Hey, thanks for sharing. That's awesome. Yeah, thank you for listening. I think I just I guess I felt a personal connection to Norman. I just felt that these stories about all of these Hollywood luminaries really deserved to be visited. If you could hear the guy in his own voice, it would really be something special. So there you go. Workers value their independence. Now more than ever, and companies are.

"I can't imagine first of all working in film as long as you have and seeing how drastically that's changed because you're still filming now creek during rick trade any of the stuff you're working on it's the idea of your history is not just history but it's also to do specifically with this medium we live in. You've seen it shift in such dramatic ways. And then you've worked with people like charlie chaplin all so to say that i mean to a young person if you say yes he worked with charlie chaplin was it and was very dear friends with him and then two ish years ago. Made a movie with amy schumer. They may not understand that. That's the part of you. You will do anything relief. She shocked break. Can you imagine being shocked at the age of one hundred and three.

"charlie chaplin" Discussed on Progressive Talk 1350 AM
"History. Part of the appeal for me is that villains give me a chance as a viewer to kind of indulge that part of my psyche that's tinged with darkness, but They do it in a way that's really fun and usually has tremendous style. And then of course you have your little spotted friends. Yes, Yes, I must say such perfectly beautiful coach. But I wanted to find out what people who work in and study animation. Think about what actually makes a villain a villain. First, I spoke with animation historian and Emory University professor at even Mueller. Okay, let's parse this just a little bit. Are we talking about a good villain in an animated short like a Bugs Bunny cartoon? Are we talking like Ursula, Uh, first one, then the other, Okay? A good villain in an animated short is really not the villain. Good villain in an animated short is more like the straight man in a two man crosstalk Act right? The villains were there. To unfold the hero's abilities. And you could look at a great like silent comedian like, say, a Charlie Chaplin, right? Charlie Chaplin was kind of a cartoon character. He's this little nimble guy, and so they paired him with, like big bruiser guys, and you just run circles around him so Villains in these shorts are never really scary. It's not like the deliverance hillbillies from hillbilly hair. Who Who are forced to engaged in non consensual square dancing. Bye. Another bugs and drag. I really don't think all the time about bugs dressed as a girl. I like sometimes think of other people dressed. This girl's um, um They're not really villains because they don't really menace bugs. Death is completely banished. From the world off Warner Brothers cartoons. The coyote can never eat the road runner. But that's okay because the coyote can also be accordion at the bottom of a cliff and be fine in the next shot. Which means that risk or peril, which is one of things that the villain brings in. That idea doesn't really attached to the comedy shorts. And I think that, for example, I think Elmer Fudd is Bugs Bunny's greatest foe. Because Off the visual contrast and he's such a hideous And bugs is so smart. I love Pete Puma, because I love that the voice mobile together Rabbit in his hole. I'm gonna catch up to you to Bob s o. I think in the in the shorts there aren't really villains. They're just victims because what you start messing with that boxing kangaroo who you think is a giant mouse, Sylvester. You're just going to get your clock cleaned. Tweety pie is sweetie pie, the victim? I don't think so. I think Tweety Pie is just messing with that. Can't I talk to that He before about how Elmer is no.
HBO Max: we checked it out
"To in the past. It's not give us fifteen bucks. You'll get a whole new world of programming instead it's keep subscribing to the HBO now Streaming Service because we just gave it a face lift and made it a whole lot better. I'm Jefferson Graham. This is talking tech. Let me fill you in Max's. Hbo Plus Movies TV series and cartoons from the Warner Brothers Library. Classic Hollywood and Foreign Films From The T. C. M. Film Library original animation and more now. Hbo Now just got a whole lot better. And for me since I was already subscribing. I have more of a reason to keep it. I like the programming selection. You may like it too if you have an apple TV or google chrome cast streaming device in the house but if you're like most people and get your streaming the a Roku or Amazon fire TV streaming player while you're out of luck for now. At and T. Which owns Warner media? Didn't make a deal with either. So it's either fork over thirty five dollars for chrome cast a hundred and fifty dollars for the Apple. Tv device or watch. Max on one of the newer Sony or Samsung. Tv's here's what you're gonNA find. Hbo IS PROMOTING. Heavily the complete collection of friends and the Big Bang theory at the top of the front. Page the Harry Potter films and others from the Warner Brothers Library including man and wonder woman Max is broken up into several hubs. This includes looney tunes cartoons. Adult swim in the cartoon network. Hbo MTC 'em some hubs are better than others. T is fully featured with classics Galore. Like the wizard of Oz gone with the wind and I really love this. The Complete Charlie Chaplin Film Collection Cartoon Network has just a handful of series like the power puff girls and dexterous laboratory. But it's missing some key titles like Johnny Bravo and courage the cowardly dog unlike the recent Disney plus launch which had hundreds of vintage animation from the bolt along with four current titles. Max has many of the best of bugs bunny porky pig and gang including a duck amuck corny concerto in gorilla my dreams but a big emission at least on the first day is the greatest looney tunes cartoon ever made. What's Opera Doc the? Hbo Hub is basically HBO now with. Yes. Every episode of Game of thrones the Sopranos Kirby enthusiasm plus more. But if you're looking for something outside of those hubs navigation is tough for instance. Max promised classics from the Hanna Barbera Library like the Flintstones and the jetsons an episode of Conan from the TBS Library

"It's nineteen thirty. The world is stuck in the early stages the great depression many Americans lift their spirits at the new moving picture shows in theaters and nickelodeon 's Buster Keaton Charlie Chaplin comedies.

It does it as well. As in home receiving sense the image detector Tube and the Cathode Ray tube are the heart and brain system. Television Vilo Farnsworth's image to sector tube and camera system had finally brought the long anticipated picture radio into being station equipment. The electrons become radio impulses to broadcast and picked up by receiving sense where the routine is with us. The radio impulsive becoming points of light that appear on the screen as picture thirty pictures. I completed every second. These earliest television programming was live performance music and sound accompanied. The OBAMAS was action both visible and audible elements going on the air in perfect synchronization battling with the speed of light to amaze of tubes and equipment. The show leaves the station send the towers viewed by the television public and audience as yet small and comparatively ignorant of the research and experiment. That makes it possible rush to see and hear people many miles away watching this newsreel in the movie theater. The audience is intrigued but sceptical. The most fanciful dream of mankind is day startling reality destined to become the world's most popular science in one thousand nine thirty in San Francisco. Two years have passed since Filo funds worth with help from his wife. Pam Gardner and her brother cliff triumphantly showed off off a working prototype of electronic television. Violence picture was on the front page of the San Francisco Chronicle under a headline that called him a genius is name was being being mentioned in newsreels magazines journals and the Associated Press but he hadn't yet found a manufacturer to partner with so financially files fortunes agents hadn't changed Penn gave birth to their first son. Filo T farnsworth third the previous year and a second son. Kenny would follow in nineteen thirty one but now a curious envelope in the days male brings a new possibility. You got a letter here. Filo says it's from New York I can't believe. RCA is offering one hundred thousand dollars for the image sector would. That's wonderful that exactly pam they want to own it outright i. It's not ideal but one hundred thousand dollars is a lot of money. Not compared to what television will eventually be worth. It's a mistake to cash in too soon like this. We have to keep the faith. I understand. Filo it's your invention that's Pammy. It's not it it never was. It's it's all of the great minds that have come before to make this possible. And it's you it's cliff. All of us were a team but they wanna buy our work and call it. There's it's just not fair. They can license it if they like. I've spent my entire life working towards this Pam. It's like it's like trying to sell one of our children. The Lord will provide Filo a a few weeks later. The farnsworth's receive another big opportunity with visit to the lab from United Artists. The Film Production Company was Silent Age Film Stars like Charlie the chaplain. Douglas Fairbanks D W Griffith and Mary. PICKFORD PICKFORD is especially enthusiastic. We just had to see this amazing new television system. We've heard so much about it. But when the time comes the image to sector won't cooperate Filo is rattled. I I'm sorry folks. This is humiliating million chaplain smiles. Don't sweat it. I've seen worse like Douglas's latest picture a few hours later. After the stars leave cliff finds the problem on a wire wasn't plugged in it. Was that simple Dan. How did I not see that Pam tries to reassure him? Mary Pickford was here. We were all a bit distracted. It did keep the faith Filo when a third opportunity knocks a few weeks later Filo is determined to answer the call this time. FILC who radio in Philadelphia. They they they want to license the Patents Fund our research. But it'll still be ours with some help Vilo at Phil Co so in Philadelphia moving from the bay area to the city of brotherly love. What do you think it sounds great? And so the Farnsworth family packed packed their bags with their belongings precious equipment and board a train to head across the country to Philadelphia Pennsylvania. His family counting on him. Kylo could only pray he was making the right decision.
