Well in southern missouri. You'll find the ozarks and they play some unique music. It sounds a little like this later. He kind of became bluegrass. But this music. it's not written down. Heck the old guys like me call cheek music chicken scratch and they learn music by year and they pass it down by planned together and they call him jam sessions or are hootenanny. He's and the pandemic well. Hey can't get together to pass on the music to the younger folk and the guys playing music now heck. They're getting old.

Wow so it's gonna reduce waste and they don't have to use as much as the other raw materials to make roads. It's a win win dude. I hope they do that here. Too man.

What did all those homeless people. It's sad but there is a guy that's helping and it's kind of nice. It's actually kind of cool. it's very cool in chicago.

Remembering 'Sound Of Music' Star Christopher Plummer
"Plummer and julie andrews scene from the sound of music people have such strong feelings about that movie the either love it or they hate it and they think it's really insipid. Where do you stand on this issue of our time I'm very fond of julie. That's the nicest thing that came out of that film for me. We we have a true in great friendship. She's an extraordinary woman professional. I'm grateful to the film in many ways because it was such a success. It is not my favorite film.

"He didn't use one piece of business and he was a huge success and it's Chris said I knew from that moment on that son of a bitch was gonna be a star. He was still being Christmas. Still quite a star. Hey, when he came to Stratford in the you know, even even even later in life. I mean, it must have been a huge deal to the town he would show up. Yes, enormous and his star evolved. I mean, he was, you know a bad boy in the early years and had real power and danger, And he always preserved that danger. But after bury more things changed, he had up Tilbury more. I think in those years and the you know he became a bit discounted as career sometimes do. He was rediscovered with that part and then Lear and then Lear that we took to New York and in his later years when he won the Oscar, he had morphed into someone. Who was perhaps a little bit more impish more of a twinkle in his eye. I suppose he always had that. But he was no longer the kind of Uh, bad boy that he was in the early years, and he made a huge difference to the festival. At every turn. I feel like he made a big difference to Canadian theater in general, because I mean, when Christopher Plummer started its Trafford and 56, as you mentioned when he was in his twenties, how different was Canadian theater back then, when he started out Well, you know the thing about he left the country in the early fifties he had to, as most actors had to in those years because there wasn't really much of Canadian theater at that time. And as he says, you know, I got to New York And then all of a sudden I hear that the world changing theatrical event is back in my home. Country and Stratford, Ontario, and so he came back. He you know, at that time there, there wasn't much going on. As I said, however, for someone like Chris, he soaked up everything that was there and used it as a launching pad toe work all over the world. London, New York on film on stage So you know, he, uh, He was extraordinary and pioneering Canadian actor like From what I understand. In those early days, it was mainly English actors leading productions as opposed to someone like Chris. Yes, That's right. He had you know, and his friends like Bruno Jerusalem, and the people that he worked with Schattner and others were developing a uniquely Canadian style, a different sensibility. That was all our own. That had emotional depth to it, but also had technique. It was something that combined the very best of the British in the American traditions and And you know, he had a lot of arrows in his, you know skills. I mean, he was a brilliant pianist. There was one day when he was playing Hamlet, Tom and he it was early in the rehearsals, and he noticed the figure that was there in the audience. Not that time Stretcher Festival also had an incredible music. Uh, serious of concerts with extraordinary figures from throughout the world. And so, But, you know, Um Chris was bothered by a person being there early in the rear. So so he called over the director Michael Hang on this, he said rather grandly is he said, Michael, I can't concentrate with that person there. I can't see what it is. But could you please tell them to leave? And so, Michael said, Perhaps you might join me for a moment. Chris and he brought him down. And he said, Chris, this is Duke Ellington. Oh, my God was composing a syriza of musical pieces on Shakespeare because he loves Shakespeare. And so I mean, Chris nearly swallowed his upper plate. He he walked backwards, a genuflecting And single. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. It's pleasure to meet you. So the world was different in those days and it was it was. It was just the beginnings of the theaters. We know it today across Canada. If you're just tuning in, this is Cube. We're talking about the late Canadian actor Christopher Plummer, who died last Friday for more than seven decades, a legend on screen and stage playing classic roles in Macbeth and the Tempus But this rough Magic. I hear about your And when I have required some heavenly music, which, even now I do Work. My name's upon their senses that this airy charm is for I'll break My stuff. Bury it certain fathoms in the earth. And deeper than did ever plummet Sound. I'll drown. My book from 2010 that is Christopher Plummer playing Prospero at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival and speaking to Anthony Chamoli know the man who has very fond memories of Christopher Plummer, artistic director at the Stratford Festival. What do you make it? Add. Like what? What goes through your mind when you hear that? What goes through my arms or goose bumps? Yeah, he had an ability to Resonate like a violin like he felt things and it would stream out of him and into all of us. He could silence on audience like just just total focus immediately and You know, just to watch him and to be with him, And the thing is, as you said, the beginning of this interview, Tom once you spoke to him, I mean, you know, he was so full of life. I mean, in his book that which everybody should get. It's called in spite of myself, a memoir that you wrote he'd introduce like this Beautiful quote about Hamlet by saying, I'm not sure if was Hagel or Schlegel or Bagel who said Um, yeah, he was You know, he was irreverent and always interested in things and and and yet had this incredible talent. And you know what I find really interesting is one of the means that's going everywhere. On the Internet. Right now is a picture of Chris in the sound of the music, ripping down the Nazi flag and tearing it in half and Right, and everybody loves that. And you know when you look at him and the power that's in that the authority that's in that, but also his civility. His understanding of what is right in the world was right at the center of his being. And so when he became angry, you were angry with him. And I guess our world today needs a little bit more of that. It sounds like it. Talk to me. Let's put this put our actor hats on here a little bit and tell me a little bit about how he took on roles like Macbeth and King Lear. I mean roles that have been done. Millions of times and done by, You know, incredible actors. How did he manage to make these rolls his own? I think in the early years and I'm getting this from, you know his stories, and I think in the early years it was very much the power of his personality, his instincts. It wasn't preparation it was, you know, he was just a fantastic artist and And he would be able to really throw himself into things and worked with brilliant people, so he became stronger and learn more and saw more. Later in his life. It was interesting Tom to talk to him as he watched, you know other performances of key parts, and he would really like be able to take everything apart almost surgically about choices. The actor had made this moment rather than that moment so later in this year's he would show up at rehearsal. For the first day, having brilliantly throught through everything, and it only deepened from there. So he was a person over time who went from being You know this dangerous, bad boy to becoming a real artist on and a theater person in every sense. One more thing he didn't on. Lee do his part on like he had a way through how he comported himself and the way he was on stage to direct the entire production around him uncanny. How much to that theater training show up in his success and film. With. You know the Stratford festivals interesting because it changed the course of the performance of Shakespeare in World history because it has a stage in the center of the audience. And that was the first time that we had something like Shakespeare stage since Shakespeare was alive, so changed performance styles. From Alec Guinness, who was the first person on our stage is Richard the third, you could be intimate, like in other words, you're surrounded. And so there's no point trying to throw a performance across the proscenium arch. You had to be yourself because people were looking your back. They were looking at front. You'd be moving in real time. So that kind of training which came from understanding how to work on that very, very intimate stage of the Stratford trustable prepared him to just be real on film and styles were changing, You know, the declamatory style. Was really something that people like Chris Plummer saw out of the door and gave it a good kick out the door, so he really didn't change his performance style for film. He just Lived it. He didn't act it. What is Christopher Plummer's success done for Canadian actors and their reputations around the world?.

"Now What I've just given to you is a taste just a taste of the awards and nominations that Christopher Plummer has been given. But did you know there's a whole Wikipedia page and actual separate Wikipedia page dedicated to the awards that Christopher Plummer was nominated for, or one Now these accolades are justified. By the fact that if you ever seen Christopher Plummer in any movie, you will notice in addition to his charisma, the fact that he was very eclectic. She had the ability to play various types of roles and act and various types of movies from the family friendly sound of music to even more edger films like the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Or recently the movie knives out. You could play the good guy, the protagonist in one film and then the villain, the antagonist in another. Example of this being a villain. Is his work in a movie that you may recommend called Nicholas Nickleby, which was the 2002 adaptation of Charles Dickens story the same name, And in this film, he plays a rather ruthless, unpleasant and even immoral businessman who just happens to be the main character, Nicholas Nickleby. Again, a period film that I recommend recently crisper plumber, Self wrote his best selling memoir entitled In Spite of Myself to say That's a catchy title. What is interesting about his background is that he was a descendant of a famous pastor. He is the great great great grandson of Reverend John Bethune, who was the founder of the First Presbyterian Church of Montreal. John. But there was also the patriarch of a family who became prominent not on Lee in the church, but also in politics, the fur, trade medicine and even long Is an example of this is seen in John Bethune's son. His name was Norman Bethune, Christopher Plummer's great great grandfather, and Norma Thune was a famous Canadian medical physician and medical innovator. Loop. It Who was Christopher Plummer's manager for 46 years. Had this to say about him yesterday, Quote Chris was an extraordinary man who deeply loved and respected his profession. With great old fashioned manners, self deprecating humor and the music of words. It was a national treasure who deeply relished his Canadian roots. Through his art and humanity. He touched all of our hearts and his legendary life will endure for all generations to come. He will forever be with us. Christopher Plummer died on Friday, February fit 20,021 at the age of 91. Now last week, I spent some time discussing the spiritually war that all Christians air and whether they know it or not. And like all war, there are theaters of war that exist. In other words, there are arenas. There's battlefields and many other environments in which this conflict this spiritually war is played out. As I said, the spirituals, not against people directly at all. It's against ideas, worldviews and the philosophies that rise in hatred that rise in rebellion against God against what God has said and against his revealed son Jesus Christ. Now the battlefields that exists in this spiritually war are varied and geography. They vary in size, and they vary in content. The battlefield can be your home. Give me the street that you live on your school, your community, your city and even beyond. But I would like to highlight is one particular battle that is happening right now is taking place in Northern California in a place called San Jose. I'm sure many of us know where that is. And the battles between the county of Santa Clara and a church And the church is Calvary Chapel of San Jose. The city has been fit to take. The resource is their money and their energy and to target with extreme prejudice this particular church because it has refused to comply. With the mandates of shutting down Now we have to ask ourselves. Why aren't cities concerned with places like casinos, liquor store strip clubs and other entities who are open and heaven? Shut down. Why has the church been the target from the very beginning of covert? And if you watch the news and last year you have noticed this, even the Supreme Court has had to deal with this problem, which I'll get to later. Well, if you're thinking about this question, the answer is very pragmatic, and it's very simple. The casinos, the liquor stores of the strip clubs bring in money, lots and lots of money to the state, and the state has no interest in losing that revenue. Not. Churches is a hole on the other hand, bringing very little if nothing to the state. A vast majority of churches in this country are small, the megachurch model that we constantly hear about Is very rare. But the fact alone doesn't explain why the state would then uses energy. It's resource is and it's money and its power to attack an entity, an institution that has the right to exist above all others. Yes, I said that right? It has the right to exist above all others. Let me explain. You see, the church is the first of only three institutions specifically mentioned in the First Amendment Now to help in light in this, let me read what the First Amendment States quote Congress. Shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for redress of grievances. Now they're three institutions mentioned here. If you didn't catch it, the church number one that is Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion. But then we have the institution of publishing. It says off abridging the freedom of speech or of the press. That's not just a news agency. That's your ability to print anything. Anyone being able to actually publish something. And then we have the institution of the right of assembly. It says Here that Congress shall make no law abridging or getting rid of the right of the people peaceably to assemble. So we have the church. We have the right to publish and the right to assemble now wanna focus on the one aspect of the First Amendment in relation to the church? Here's what it says again. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion. Let me just say that this opening phrase of the First Amendment simply means this that the government is prohibited from creating its own church. The United States government can't create a Church of America. Is there anyone listening in the audience who's ever seen or heard of church that's called the Church of America that was financing established by our government. And, uh oh, and you never will. You see, this opening statement was clearly written by the founding fathers to make a point. America, unlike England, was never to be in the church business. Or you could say ever in the in the business of church, I will say that way to you See way back in the early 16th century, the English monarchy did create a church, didn't they? It was called the Church of England. And it was provided to the English people by that lovely that friendly and affable Henry the eighth All sarcasm implied here, of course. And the Church of England dominated English culture. And guess what? It dominated the people with suppression. Our founding fathers understood this. They knew their history. And they recognize that the first order of business for this new republic for this new country called the United States of America was not to create a church as England did, which led Many to misery. Had to say that I believe that most Americans don't even know what I just told you. Many Americans probably do not know why the founding fathers were did this statement of the First Amendment the way that they did, and I have to say that's pretty tragic. Now let's take a look at the second part of the opening statement of the First Amendment. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion. We just covered that and then it says, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. What does that mean? It means this that the government shall make no law to create a church and the government will not and cannot interfere with the exercise of people or the church in its activities. In worship. That.

What to watch for during Trump's 2020 State of the Union address
"To all state of the union night and I expect the state of the union to feature the president talking about space force so I have a tenant general Steve quashed former commander Air Force education training lieutenant general costs of course serve many many years in the airforce to join me to talk about that good morning general good to have you back well good morning good to hear your voice I wanna begin general with an off them off topic question I I usually spend election day because they're so doggone long I trying to movie so yesterday I went and saw a movie which surprised me a little bit call the last full measure it's about a pararescue jumper by the name of William Pynchon Berger who received the medal of honor in nineteen ninety nine after thirty years after it was in nineteen sixty six battle in which he lost his life jumping in the middle of a firefight involving big red one were you ever aware of this story were you aware of this movie it hadn't gotten any publicity at all yes I was aware of that but these are the kind of things that I pay attention to as a person who tries to protect this nation and so all of the human stories about heroes that are willing to give the last full measure are of great interest to me because the society that and genders of the kind of motivation for people to protect their values in this society that lasts it is and I am amazed that the cast in this movie Samuel L. Jackson Sebastian said Christopher Plummer and Heris I mean it the Peter Fonda just goes on and on and on and it hasn't gotten a lot of look back at the Vietnam generation you're too young for that but they deserve this kind of a movie and I hope people go and see it and I hope they learn the story of William Pitts and bart what surprised me general that I moved to space force of the nearly four thousand medal of honor that have been confirmed only three have been received by airforce enlisted man are you surprised by that well I'm not you know the the interesting thing about life and about that this habit you have going to the movies is something I'd like to propose all your listeners because for people to reflect on what's going on around them what what what this all means is really important in movies like that help tell the story about what this all means the fact that it's this many army or this many Air Force of this many navy is really immaterial what is important is that we have a cadre a group of people in the society who are willing to put on the clock defense to protect the values that has made this country great right now general want to switch to the state of the union it's going to be on in about wealth six o'clock tonight and you are eight o'clock nine o'clock tonight he's got six truck west coast presence gonna walk out there and for the first time ever I believe there will be a member of the joint chiefs of staff pouring a space force uniform am I correct in that I am assuming that that will be the case we'll see tonight when we actually a turn on our TV use that I I think that that will happen and what will you feel when you see that tonight well great pride great pride in our country at recognizing some of things that are changing around us just just as the changes that took place when we moved from the hunting gathering gardening age to the industrial age we are moving into a new network H. that is going to change life for all human beings on planet earth no matter where you live and the space forces are as at that person in that uniform is a recognition by this country that we as Americans need to lead ourselves into this new future or we will be led by somebody else now in the collection of categories of weaponry and mission but the space fourth collects will they have cyber general quash well again sometimes we get trapped into these silos of trying to assume for it predict the future of saying you are gonna do this you're going to do that the ways these take place successfully in history is when you start with new capability meaning you say what what is the problem what are we trying to do you build their capability and then you then you decide what mission that capability should should do OB otherwise what you do is you start making assumptions for the future that were true in the past and it doesn't fit and you can sometimes lose if you if you fall into that intellectual trap what I'm particularly speaking to is that each of the branches for example fly a sort of helicopter for a sort of mission that's not particular to any of the services Coast Guard S. helicopter therefore sent helicopters army as helicopters maybe as helicopters space for sits there and they have a unique mission and a new frontier do you expect them to fly helicopters or are they going to be much more focused on a particular set of instruments in a particular set of capabilities and when will we know what those are and and how they will develop right and that that's a great question and you know the reason everybody flies crafted because as we invented the airplanes the right brothers invented the airplane in nineteen oh three the world started figuring out how powerful it was to use the air to travel and to do all kinds of things communicate and and so everybody needed it and within what it was that they were trying to do the same is going to be true in space space is cell under utilized right now we we think we we work in space by having satellite fall around the earth but it is an entirely new geography so everybody will benefit from space everybody will use space out but the space force will in the future start defining what they can do that nobody else can do and that will start emerging as they build new capability so everybody will use space but only the space force will do those things that nobody else can do like for example if this involves the way I think it should be historically they should defend commerce and space so that anybody that is working as an American and space in any kind of business that is providing goodness and prosperity to our country have somebody that will protect their values protect their hard work and bring rule of law and expense of justice to that environment no I don't wanna go Star Wars honest but we don't have any capability right now to do that do we we don't have a shuttle that's flying we do have a lot of private sector initiatives in the area of space but do we have any vehicle the commander space in return well we do and that the and and they are growing and emerging more and more every day so what you're going to see is it Thomas is there we as a nation I never knew there was an ocean out there we were just on land and we were just doing our thing growing our food gathering and we discovered that there was this ocean and people started building canoes and boats and ships and the same happening here with space space is a geography of resources and potential prosperity and we are gonna explode into it as we go forward so there are something like the X. thirty seven is an example of a it's really a tiny little subtle but it can go up into space you can come back down and the lawn mosque is building the starship Jeff bass services building has aircraft that or space craft and we are literally emerging and to an age where it is going to be aviation like access to space where you can get into a space craft you can take off you can be anywhere in the world in less than an hour and back home for dinner and that will become pedestrian meaning everybody will do it just like you flying a plane get the LA to New York right now two very quick question general both about tonight's state of the union what is the relationship with NASA between the space force enough there and what do you expect the president to say about space force and or about NASA tonight or what would you like him to say well I I think I would like the president to remind the American people of this this this power of understanding what is going on around us and what is going around us on around this is technology is changing world power and we are moving into a new realm where space is going to change the way we deliver energy and information and and to remind the American people that going forward with the space force is a way for America to late because some civilization will lead into this new ocean of prosperity and historically whoever lead into that new area well defined the values and I want the values of free speech a quality human right and life and liberty I do not want to I do not want the values that we see being imposed on those in Hong Kong or the Uighurs I I want American values in this new prosperous economy because we value and respect human life general clients thank you for joining us lieutenant general Steve cross former commander Air Force air education and training command expert in space force thank you for bring in some perspective for the state of the union tonight of course I have most of the key state of the union tomorrow and maybe by tomorrow as well Wallace whatever's alter my what don't hold your breath let's talk a little bit about why Joe Biden collapsed first of all you gotta understand yesterday morning Joe picked a bad time to go on the today show and sort of melt down with Savannah Guthrie cut number two has it occurred to you that there's a certain irony here that has the president is accused seven is that knowledge wanting to get information about your son hunter in his dealings with Ukraine and this process of impeachment has ensured that everyone knows about hunters dealings with Ukraine no one's found anything wrong with his day was a crazy except they say such a bad image what do you agree that a sense about him and my son said that do you think it
Startups For the Rest of Us
Stairstepping Your Way to SaaS with Christopher Gimmer
"I'm rob today with Chris Gamer. We're here to share our experiences to help you avoid with the mistakes we've made welcome back to the show. Thanks for joining me this week. Pretty interesting story this week. Christopher Dimmer did talk at microcosm starter back in April and and he and his co founder really stair stepped. They launched an APP that had one time sales. It was a marketplace. They grew that to where it plateaued. which wasn't isn't enough that they could live on and they saw an opportunity and started almost like a beat AC- type stock photo site not but kind of beat a small B.? And then use that to parlay into Sassa. So I don't want to Belabor it because we get into Chris's entire experience in the interview and one thing I really. We like about Christmas story. Is that he and his co founder. They learned small things. I and they didn't try to go play in the major leagues. When they didn't have the skills to do that they went and played little league and then they went and played high school ball and they played college ball and they played minor leagues and then they played major leagues? And that is that repeatable. Meticulous disciplined way that I've always believed in starting startups. It's not trying to raise hundreds of millions and take this big gluck shot that you may or may not have the skills or the confidence or the whatever to do but after listening to Christmas story you know that. Even if he were to his company today that he has a skill set that he can take with him to the next thing to the next thing and it becomes this these repeatable startups building real products selling them to real customers for real money so without further ado. Let's dive into our conversation. Christopher plummer thank you so much for joining me on the show today. Thanks for having me. We're here today. Data talk about snape your startup. That's at snape. Dot Com and your headline is Create Online graphics in a snap whip up graphics for social media ads blogs and more. Even if you're not aw graphic designer you did talk about nine months ago at Microcosm Star and it was a really interesting tale of your journey with your co founder across six or seven years multiple APPs to how you got to where you are today where snape you were just talking before the call that you expect to hit a million dollars dollars in a are in the next month or two. So congratulations on that base for much and snape you guys launched it in November of two thousand fifteen. You had four thousand dollars mirror. The end of the first month is that right. Yes so we had built up a bit of a a a list before we officially launch and we had you know kind of like Beta period so we had an audience launch to and then yeah within a month of launching we did hit about four thousand dollars. Mr which is off so good and we're going to dig in to that in this episode about how you got there and how you Kinda parlayed stair stepped your way up multiple APPs. It's a pretty pretty interesting story. And by April Twenty nineteen which again was about nine months ago. You guys were at Abou Sixty Two K.. Mara that's what you mentioned in the talk and then you're just about to hit the magic eighty three thousand three hundred thirty three dollars and thirty three cents and for those who aren't in. No that is one million air art which is a mark. It's it's a funny. It sounds odd when you say the Mirror but in eras is so cool to say. Yeah I run a seven-figure business you looking forward to that day. Yeah I mean it's it's something that I remember when Marcus is my co-founder and I remember when we first started snap. Were like man. If we can just get to ten Kate Mara like lifelessly magical goal and then you know obviously you end up hitting that and then you know everyone just talks about the Melania rare in the seven figures and so kind of once. We you vera kind of fulltime on snape and we're making a living off it that kind of next yardstick for I mean super arbitrary but it was always like. Yeah I'd love to get to about millionaire are so we'll we'll definitely celebrate what when we hit Most likely next month yeah. That's cool. Do you have plans of of what you'll do are you. When you're co-founder remote or able to get together and have a glass of champagne together? We both live in Ottawa. Were pretty much best friends so we hang out a quite a bit so oh yeah well we might do something special planned exactly. What yet? But we'll definitely do something good. Yeah if there's anything I've learned from my wife who is folks don't know Sherry walling. She's a psychologist and she works with. Founders is to celebrate those wins because they are unfortunately few and far between and there's a lot more struggle then there is the wins and I was never. I've never been good at celebrating the winds and she has has forced me to do it. And I think it's a good thing for everybody and frankly the wind is not it. Just you and your co founder. It's like take your wife out to dinner. Your your fiancee out to a great dinner or on a great trip or not. That's the thing it's like. The whole family had had to put up with me when I was growing my APP. I'm sure your girlfriend now. Fiancee S to had to put up with a lot of crap from you as well. So it's like I. I think we all deserve to kind of have have those winds when they come amen. Yeah definitely show. She'll be excited to hear that. Totally something about your story I it lines up with both stair stepping that I talk about a lot but also so this concept of this quote that I keep doing things in public creates opportunity. You went through multiple APPs to get to where you are now and you had one in two thousand twelve. That's kind of unrelated but in two thousand thirteen where you launched Bootstrap Bay two thousand fourteen twenty fourteen okay and that was a theme marketplace get place for bootstrap which is a framework. And tell me about how you guys thought like what the goal was there in launching. That was it. We WanNA launch launch a business very much. The the dream of all of us. It's to get to the point where it's supporting US fulltime. Yeah that was definitely the goal of stripe as so mark in La so we actually elite. Were both working in the in the government. That's that's how we met and it's funny because we were related to the youngest guys in the office and you know naturally we just started hanging hanging out and and became friends and then one day like mark had kind of pulled me into his office and he's like they wanna see something and it was. It was almost a zillow type of website like a real estate website. And I was like well. You can actually program like I. I had no idea because he was doing something unrelated at work. And so that kind of kicked off like the journey him just trying to figure stuff out and see if we can launch a business that could enable us to quit our jobs so so yeah the goal of bootstrap it was It was just a something that we could do while we're still working our jobs full-time and hopefully the the the idea was that that we can make enough money from it as that. We can quit angle fulltime on. It wasn't necessarily like a project like super passionate about and that we were planning on running for the next ten or twenty years. That's interesting so why started as a marketplace where you have essentially buyers and sellers rather than build out a bunch of your own themes themes and just sell it sell them like basically you're a digital product company instead of a marketplace. Yeah so essentially funny enough you would started breeding Keyword Research Seo and initially. We're actually looking for things that we can drop ship. Or whatever and then market con assembled across oss the bootstrap beans Putra templates as a keyword. which was getting a lot of search volume and at the time didn't have crazy competition like theme forest and even have its its own bootstrap category and there was kind of one major marketplace at the time which was which was called rat bootstrap? I think it's still really big today. And for variety reasons and and being super naive we thought like Oh. We can build something better uh-huh so in order to see the marketplace you know mark had kinda designed the first I like three or four themes but we thought it would be more salable if we were able to get other seem authors on board and kind of add more supply to the marketplace a good place than we can generate on her own. So that's kind of how it happened. WAS BOOTSTRAP Bay a successful business. Like can you give us an idea of how much revenue abroad and for you. So the the peak month was I think it was doing about like eight to ten K.. Or something so once we paid out like all the theme authors something I think we're profiting may be four K.. or or something so it was maybe a decent like side-hustle business but we essentially got to the point where we're having trouble growing strictly through Seo and because our margins and the lifetime value wasn't high enough we just couldn't put any money into a paid ads and we just started plateauing towing after a year and we knew it was gonna be an uphill battle in there which was kind of why we we started thinking about other stuff that we could orange. Yeah yeah no recurring revenue and the funnel is only so wide right. There is only so many people searching for for bootstrap themes and the other problem was like had mentioned the the tall marketplace could place. And as you know like first mover and this is something I learned out for. The fact is when you're kind of the dominant marketplace and you've got the first mover advantage is just so hard to due to unseat them so we we were ranking like number two or three and and the number one guy was just cleaning up so we we knew it was going to be a really really really tough battle and one that we didn't really want to keep fighting
Popcorn with Peter Travers
Don Johnson on His New Film 'Knives Out'
"This is popcorn where we tell you what's happening at the movies and there's a movie now that is a WHO Dunnit of sorts but to me. It's the most fun that I've had at the movies movies this year. It's called knives out. And one of the stars is my guest today. Don- Johnson here especially little torture chamber. We Ah the black inside the black kind event also. Well people confess when they sit in this chair. I'll tell you anything anything. Anything he wanted to unburden yourself on. This is a you know I'm I'm ready. I'm ready to just leave. Just push the button. Okay Yeah who did it. No I is a movie that actually begins with the murder but it's not like we know anything well. The interesting thing is is that in the first ten ten minutes you see the actual death actual murder you see and so without knowing without knowing what you're meant to see or what what what you know there. And then you spend the next COUPLA hours having a blast watching these incredibly beautifully flog people entitled I really it just Hilarious it's Christopher amherst character that murdered right and he's having his eighty fifth birthday and yes this all star cast including you. I looked at that movie into any one of these bastards could adopt. Yeah that cast. Is You know the the interesting thing that happened. Is that when we got together to make this movie. It all came together pretty fast and we we arrived in. We shot out of south side of Boston towards Wellesley in this in that house in a big mansion. Yeah and and We all had these new enormous trailers not more than two hundred yards away from the house. we never used them. All we did was as we go downstairs in the basement of this house and we'd picked a room a lot like this a lot more friendly but I had a little more humor to it not much but we would sit around and tell stories about the movies. We'd done it asked you know I'd asked Daniel Daniel Daniel Craig about you know what. Tell me about that stunt and tell me what you know about about this and that and he had asked me about things that that We had done Christopher plummer summer and and I've known Christopher for a long time we we held down a couple of barstools and in San Francisco. I'm not shocked. And that and Jamie Lee Curtis who plays. You're pissed. Oh she he's still see. Well I worked out pretty well because she plays my wife and the thing and I showed up for work she started bossing me around and I said okay. Why not and captain? America's your son Chris Evans. Yeah this normal. Sure everybody's just hanging out there that hey birthplaces and there's a lot of movies that I see sometimes where I think the actors actors are having a great time. But I'm not in this case it's red from what you guys were doing to the audience when we see I know it's infectious. It really is. Yeah and that's harder actually think you know the the the the extraordinary extraordinary thing about this We didn't have a table read. We didn't rehearse we just showed up on the first day and you no. It's not an uncomplicated. No people have to and so we showed up on the first day. And we we start to go and I and and I hit a I hit the tone that I think is right. and Lo and behold Jamie Lee tosses the ball back to me and Scott the same tone and then we started to roll and everybody else sort of you know did their thing and we kind of brought that sense of joy in and in the moment to the to the to the to the To two knives out and I think that that's what you feel. I think that that joy in that fun kind of ride is what you feel like. You're lifted up. But it has a very contemporary temporary kind of spin on it. Yeah you should explain Richard who is a bit of a rat bastard. Yeah well they're they're all horrible people there are they are but he. He is kind of the personification of the Great. I loved him because he doesn't do. Anything doesn't have a job. AUB doesn't do anything he just you know. He's the personification of entitled because he lives off of His wife in the family and all that stuff I sort of played him like a like a one of those country club sizes. Just kind of walking around with half a buzz on over time. It is whatever you want but yeah people you need to see this. And when they do they can thank us for it. I can thank you. You're welcome. You're welcome bureaus. It's a good time and then I have to bring this up too because it's so great is watchman on HBO. You know I've seen you do a lot of great things things right from the beginning. You know even Miami Vice where when people think of it now and they think of how you're dressed and the style that you had and the suits the cheese and the t shirts and the whole deal no socks yeah started a complete fashion trend but that was a really good show. Yeah I was a little ignoring by in the beginning when there's Oh it's just fluff at style over substance and I was going well not so fast you know we we managed to get had some you know a golden globe. And you're gone. What does that mean? It's true But yeah no I've I've been fortunate in that I've had some Some meaty parts get to play over the years and I just think I mean you'll show Abo thing is is is ah trip. Sorry to interrupt with that Help the the the the writer creator of Damon Lindelof was I think I gave him his first job on Nash Bridges. You don't quite remember no way I mean I know that I I saw now I see. Yeah Yeah and then he went on of course to To do lost and forgiving him. No no no. He's true they should. I should be getting away. From all guys Sean Ryan and Carlton Carlton Cues and all the I mean. So many people came out of that That little incubator. I had gone up there. Those shows Nash Bridges and Miami. I swear long running shows which you're playing cops and I remember hearing you do an interview once and said I'm done with that you know and here you are as sheriff drugged God. You Judge Judge for judge hanging around the hanging around. But there's something in that role on. I know I get killed if I say anything too much about it but you know we probably both would. Well you'd be specially killed but I don't know how you get killed yeah to do this. But it's such a wonderfully complex charming character Thank you might have many many other level the NFL. What's happening? Yeah well when I see an emmy nomination for that too in your future Oh bless your heart. Don't vote for the Emmy Okay. So it's useless. I think you know every listen every reality start somewhere with a rumor. Okay talk to John. You heard it here therefore I give you know I'm not getting it's make it happen. Yeah that is a lot of fun to do too because it was. I didn't have a character who can be sitting at a family dinner and get up and do Rogers and Hammerstein and make everybody feel. I WANNA be around this guy. It was just very ballsy and Fabulous to what you know. That's the way I felt about it because Damon column. He wrote me this beautiful letter and of course if you want an actor's attention you just write him a letter and tell him how great he is and you've got his undivided attention. I guaranteeing I don't care who it is. It's like Kryptonite right. You know. Start Bragging on an actor and telling them how great they are. They'll do anything and I fell victim to that. He came in. Yeah Yeah you're the God. And so he Lewis. Is this Lewis right walk on. I love it but he asked me to come in and he told me he kinda told me that story. The sort of long grades plans for for watching it. I don't think he wanted to scare me off so he didn't. He didn't tell me the whole thing but he told me enough and I and I kind of felt like well. I'm in on the joke and I like that. You know and and I also think that it's an interesting thing to have My fans wouldn't expect it no one expects and it's kind of A. It's kind of like one of those things where I can get away with that these days where maybe couldn't before

Phoebe Waller Bridge won on Best Actress in a comedy beating out Julia Louis Dreyfuss in her final season as Lena Meyer from beep and bridges incredibly happy. Kate was incredibly happy. Many people on the Internet were incredibly happy. Let's get this out of the way. This is a pro fleabag podcast. You're lovely about free. It's one of the best things that that I've seen in any medium in two thousand and nineteen. Maybe in the decade yet great up there yeah fix perfect episodes a season two. Yes at flawless sure but Julia Louis Dreyfus purpose is probably the best television actress of in history. Yeah I think she's like Lucille Ball and Carol channing. Yes and she had one for veep. I believe every season she had been nominated and she was going to break the record for the most emmy wins by a woman of of all time and she she is there's also a breast cancer survivor yeah and that happened between these seasons so I think we all assumed that this would be her emmy and and it was not and that's the way the cookie crumbles moreover everyone in the room assuming yes so it was like the most tepid response. It's a win from a show that is universally praised yes. I'm sure that no one's like fleabag doesn't deserve it deserve. It really sucks sucks. That's how the point just was such an incredibly awkward moment. Totally I think okay like root for history. It's like when you walk or it's and you want to see a record broken or you. You want like someone's got hot. Hand you want to leave him in the game but as long as possible like it's okay to root for history it's okay to experience that moment and it was just really awkward. Yeah and it's also a fever waller. Bridge did not really read the room in that moment. I was wondering I guess veep is maybe not a big deal in the UK. They don't care about it. They're like we have in the loop. We don't actually need the American version of IANUCCI stuff but she was like thanking her agent and I just it wasn't the note that you wanted at that. Moment also weird for her to be profusely thanking or agent given the feud between writers and agents right now. Yes weird moment. It was not mentioned once during the entire telecast now's house per day and there was a lot of ignoring everything going on TV. No one was talking about streaming services. Everyone was just you know thinking whatever likes Amazon that that helped them. A lot of Amazon wants by the way but yeah it just it. It was uncomfortable. Even though it was happy yeah it's like not undeserved served right with the moment felt wrong and it. Kinda sucks then for our bread shoes. True talent is actually Frank Kayla. I will say like she seems super for actress to me in that moment in a way. I don't like to acknowledge and I just like Oh. This is a real actress but she also had just been up there like I think it would have been different if she hadn't won anything yet yet right right right so she had just been up there. She's up there again. It's like Oh you again like everyone loves her but like it is. It would have been different than if it had just been the first win for few celebrity yeah so it's tough. It's a no win a little bit she continued to she did continue to win now. She did and it was awesome. That fleabag won best comedy. US totally detailing curling. Everyone say their favorite episode man you go first the last one I mean come on the answer here. I soon as you said that to me. I I also kind of don't think of them as discreet right so it's entirely it was just one you could put those together and it would be like one very long movie and it would be kind of perfect shorter then some worth celebrating movies kate the first episode the pilot was the second season yeah great one of the Jumpsuit Yeah Mine's the number three's Kristin Scott Thomas See Russia Kristin Scott Thurow's Jonzon hot priest socially tough but you got yeah Kristin Scott Thomas. Oh yeah that's a trade. That's funeral so many other version of one yeah one we don't talk about the new one in the really funny thing about season into fleabag is just like everyone acknowledges now including TV while our bridge how essential Andrew Scott as you play the AK Moriarty too many of us who watched Sir Lock. Yeah weird very greatest in yeah. It was really cool and she when she turned to him accepting best comedy. It was like we did this because Andrew. You're Scott came in and that was cool. It was great and also you finally got to be on stage which was good so a motive. Actually I just want to say I love back. I don't need any more Brett Gelman twenty twenty between fleabag and stranger things. Yeah Ozone Lot shred amount of everything done. We're done offense. I guess it's it's really inherently offensive thing okay moving on so that was like a low and then and then I within a low below the recovered itself yeah. Just I mean it is remarkable. It's saying that is a special as fleabag actually won the emmys. We don't see actually the best. Things don't usually win awards. That's literally every awards show and fleabag winning and phoebe Waller winning for writing. It's just like wow we did it. That's great yeah so that was good good job on this one thing good Johnson. Okay Okay Hi Michelle Williams speech amazing stuff amazing stuff. This is also what happens when you practice and you prepare and she had clearly given some thought to what she wanted to say and not. Maybe she wrote it. I'm not really sure because it was definitely well-crafted and she hit her points but it was more that she had an idea and she wanted to turn this into It's a speech about equal pay which is like something. She's been crosshairs about a lot. If you remember when they did the re-shoots for I guess it was called all the money in the world it was the Getty Nassar Getty show out of it so Kevin Spacey's the Laura for Christopher plummer and they did the re shoots her fi versus Mark Wahlberg fee. Yes she took like a daily fee and Mark Wahlberg at one point five million dollars and then it became a thanks so she I used that in order to talk about a Fosse verdant. FX And the support and what happens when you actually do support of working specifically women have car work. She just like she had the stats. That's she nailed it.
