'Borderlands 3' voice actor turned down role because Gearbox ‘wouldn’t go union’
"One on the report why Troy Baker isn't in borderlands three this is Kirk Kirk mckean over vg twenty four seven. If you remember we're of course do this whole Brouhaha for months. Now Randy Pitchford was asked on twitter. Hey is going to be reese. Randy said no troy turned down in Troy. I didn't turn it down. You guys said No. There's been back and forth. It's been ugly here's Kirk at VGA twenty four seven. We recently got a chance to talk to Baker during a fan event for wrestler replay. Let's play series the actor host alongside the other Troy Baker Nolan north. I love that during our chat he was openly disappointed that he didn't get a chance to play reese again in Borderlands Orlands three quote so they came to me and they were like do you want to do this. Baker explained which I said absolutely and then they made it impossible for me to do the role. It had nothing to do with money money. It had nothing to do. It had nothing to do with money. It had nothing to do with money. They just simply would not go about doing it the way that we needed to be done so then it it was like I never said no gosh I I worry Detroit. No he was talking to a reporter. It sounds like he's had a retro replay thing with Guinness just sitting there talking we we asked Baker to clarify what he meant by this scheduling conflicts or something else quote no it was simply a matter that they wouldn't go union. He replied and I can't do a non union union GIG without getting too deep into the weeds of that we had long conversations about this. We always knew going into it that this was going to be the thing they're gonNa take these characters and put them from put them from the tales from the series from telltale into Borland's proper. I've been waiting for this call. They were like do you want to do this and I said yes. They never they never because they would never move from that position. I'm not mad is invariably a complicated different. I'm sorry it's invariably a completely different different character but it's still sings stings fuck. It's hard to read quotes that are like just talking yeah. When it's a prepared quote we all go this garbage quote or a written word in general but when Choi's they're they're doubling up sentences over jabbing now the fun little kind of funny thing that we can do that but I want? I was going to bring in Chad's question because I think there's interesting. relation dossier Chad wrote in to Patriot dot com slash Kinda Funny Games says morning folks with the reveal this morning that Baker as a sack after member couldn't minute reprise his role of reese in Borland's three because gearbox wouldn't go union. Do you think this is something we'll see more of. Do you think this now becoming such a high profile story will before the hands of publishers to allow voice actors to unionize. I also wonder how often this happens. Considering it took one of if not the most popular voice actors sorry known to to make a headline that said I love the solitary solidarity intrigue continues to demonstrate that he is one of the kindest humans lot also. Let Your Voice Actors Union is Randy what the fuck cheers so yes. I already know where you're going with. This is an interesting story. If you all remember we hear kind of funny didn't animated series called kind of funny the animated series in episode one principal Christopher Walken it was played by Donna Troy Baker and the idea of course is that that'd be reoccurring character throughout throughout the entire run of the animated series well on top of that he was going to play two characters. He was gonNA play the principal. He was also gonNA play Troy who was like the Guy Oh I do. Remember who was a character in the show that just doesn't ever have voice yeah and the reason he doesn't have a voice is he's a Wendy's boyfriend. I remember that yeah I'd beef with Troy and we we we did a he pulled favor. I totally which is a gal do fucking voice view. He ended up getting kind of in trouble for it. It was more of a slap on the wrist. If you can't be doing that Shit so dr like hey we want to do the whole like series a kind of social. Whatever the hell it was at that point we had to go through his people and he didn't want to be that way he was he's like dude? I want to do this. Let's make it work but us us especially back then be the people we were. We got maybe two steps into that process and we're oh man it's complicated and it's going to require not too much money but the way that the money had to go was too complicated for what we were set up for gearbox they can handle that shape this and nothing that's of course the argument to be made here right is that kind of funny in the spare bedroom at the kitchen table and nick riding on these scripts was not the same as gearbox however there's a lot of different stuff going on here. Remember that when the David eddings lawsuit stuff was happening right and he was saying he that when he got replaced as claptrap this is a similar thing right that he left left in some he he worked at gearbox did the voice of claptrap and didn't get paid extra because of it. That's not the payment thing. I don't know anything about that other than what eddings has talked about publicly but that's still seems to be the case with how they do the voices in general right after the troy thing happened. I wondered if it was this based on what had happened with us. We obviously we had never had that kind of sag work a conversation before because we never did something like that before so it'd been so much time between borderlands two boroughs three I wondered after this happened with Troy was a union thing and then on top of that. I wonder how that would affect one actually burch who of course tiny team in the game is in the game. It is actually on the economy com slash wrong if I'm wrong about that doing tiny Tina's voice like I was wondering how she got around it because that's the other thing within the union ship makes everything so complicated. No longer on unions do a lot of great. I'm good. I'm not saying they're bad but I know like when I go and do the Lego Games because I'm not union. I have to do Taft Hartley Agreement. That's something weird like I. There's like paperwork on top of paperwork that is like we're bringing this person in because he s voice because of x y and Z yeah and so you know it's this weird thing of also talking to an extent here but for a long time not forever a longtime telltale didn't use SAG after voice actors obviously towards the end the change we're talking about in the borderland right here troy's in that obviously laurabeets in that all that but I remember and I'd have to go look at it now. There's there's something different about the credits where if you look through the credits of a telltale game where they use both union and non union they get credited in different ways interesting. There's so many intricate streak. I can't even talk to complications to use voice sag person or a a union voice actress nonunion voice actor that I I do wonder what this means for. How gearbox does it? You know I think chat ask in general I don't think so because I don't think this is something that happens often in many ways we've talked about. I think it is automatic. I'd imagine this happening all the time. I mean if it happened to us. I'm sure it's happening all over the place that you just don't hear about it because most people don't have podcast that years later the randomly telling the story sure you know but I think were going just different uh-huh directions with this one I'm saying I wonder how much this happens in terms of AAA Games. That's what I'm
Why Is Cramming the Worst Way to Study?
"Hi, this is Ron burgundy from the Ron burgundy podcast, and I'm recording this brand new promo because apparently the old promos are now suffering from listener fatigue. So I'm recording. This new one to ask you to listen to the Ron burgundy podcast. And I'm so sorry. You the listener that you've become fatigued by the previous promo. So here's a brand new one a right there. How do you like it? Yeah. Listened to the podcast. Thank you. Welcome to brand stuff from how stuff works. Hey, rain stuff, Lauren Vogel bomb here with a familiar scenario. It's the day before a big calculus exam. And you haven't studied for whatever reason you're short on time have too many other exams packed into the same day too, many cat videos, you know, around ten PM you finally sit down to review the material six hours later, you catch a short nap before rushing to school, you take the exam, and it seems to go fine. Although it wasn't your best effort you pass and promise not to repeat the cycle. When it's time for your next one. This is what's known as cramming and while students, parents and educators have long known. It's not ideal in desperate circumstances. It does work to some degree and by some degree. We mean, it might save your GPA, but cramming doesn't provide long term learning. According to researchers who study how we learn versus how we think we learn spoiler alert were usually really wrong in the case of cramming. You may pass the test and feel like you've got the material down but research shows. Shows a dramatic rate of forgetting occurs afterwards. This is especially problematic. When one lesson provides foundational information for the next like in math or a language class. Forgetting most of what you learned is not the only downside to cramming. Researchers found that losing sleep while pulling an all nighter also leads to residual academic problems for days after the cramming session. You can imagine the negative effects of an ongoing cycle of procrastination and cramming. More than a century of research shows that if you study something twice retention goes up studying and then waiting before you study more produces even better long term memory. This is called the spacing effect rather than reviewing material right away students benefit from spacing out their study sessions. There are many arguments about why spacing works better for longtime retention one relates to encoding when a student's studies something from a book and reviews it immediately. The student will encode the information in the same way both times, it's not very helpful long term, the more different times and ways you can encode information. The better you'll understand it. And the longer you'll know it this means that even studying the same material in two different locations can help you encode it in different ways. Therefore, you'll learn it more successfully. Another factor at work. Is that research shows that the harder it is for brain to recall, something the more powerful, the effects of that recall will be in the long-term, for example, if you're at a conference and meet someone new you might recall their name immediately, which probably won't help you. Remember it the next day? However, if you need to recall, the person's name an hour into the conference and do so you'll have a better chance of remembering a day or week later because you had to put in the effort to recall, it a third reason why spacing works is that people pay less attention to the second presentation of material that they've just seen because the information is already familiar when the material is spaced out. It's no longer familiar, so people pay more attention. If the spacing effect sounds like a lot of waiting around to review material, and it may indeed slow the learning process because you'll be studying for more than one evening. Recent studies have shown the positive effects of another study method mixing up different material while studying this concept called interleaving consists of working on or stuff. Being one skill for short period of time then switching to another one. Then maybe a third then back to the first twenty fifteen study tested interleaving and nine middle school classrooms. Teaching algebra and geometry a day after the lesson for the unit was complete the students trained with interleaving scored twenty five percent better than the students received standard training a month later, the interleaving group was up seventy six percent. This is great news studying for an exam or completing a big project doesn't need to feel so daunting an interleaving has benefits for writing to rather than trying to block out two hours to study for a math test study math for thirty minutes before you move onto French and then work on an essay go back to the math later. There's a message here for teachers as well as students instead of teaching topic in a block and going to the next steps. Teachers can spend a short time on a topic go onto others men returned to the earlier topics. But it seems that we have a lot to learn about how we learn a two thousand nine study from UCLA. A found that spacing was more effective than cramming. For ninety percent of the participants. Just six percent of those who crammed learned more than those who studied using these spacing effect in three experiments. Researchers tested spacing against cramming yet. Despite the findings in favor of spacing. Participants believed the cramming style was more effective and a twenty twelve UCLA study found that staying up and foregoing sleep study is actually counterproductive no matter how much a student. Studies daily. If they sacrifice sleep in order to study more they're likely to have more academic problems. Not bless the next day.

"Hey, everybody and welcome to. The st- Wednesday crush, April Fools reveal dish. It's me by myself actually with Ramsey, but it's just me in here. Talking to you to say happy perforce day. Christopher Walken did not join me everybody the record an almost of you know, this some of you are probably very disappointed right now. But we had to we couldn't let this go on any longer. So he thought fun way to do. This would be let you hear some of the outtakes. Here's how this went down. And we're all very excited about the result. By the way, it went over better than we could ever expected. What we really wanted out of. This was a lot of fun. We wanted people on the Facebook page debating the liberty of this that happened. We wanted to fool some people that happened. We wanted people to not be fooled into sniff it out that happened. And we were. Wanted people to say things like, you know, what I don't care if it's real or not this is a lot of fun to listen to and it's fun to speculate and get online and debate with one another heck, you guys even got on the movie Crushers and made a poll out of this on whether it was real or not and that just ally to me to no end. So we had a lot a lot of fun. Yes. We did set this up weeks and weeks and weeks ago with the false plant of the huge guest. Yes. I did go to Los Angeles to the Hollywood studio kind of largely for this. So I could sit down with the great Kevin Pollack everybody. Most of you figured out that it was Kevin. I know there were some Ross Marquand guesses in there as well. Both of those make a lot of sense, but Kevin is a pal and he agreed to do this. And I gotta say I have not had much more fine in my recording career than sitting down across from one of the great improvisers of our time and seeing him. Go into Christopher Walken mode in front of my very eyeballs. It was funny and creepy like he really goes there everybody he he becomes Christopher Walken. And that is how you are able to improvise for an hour as someone else like you have to go into autopilot, basically on the voice to be able to be believable. And we decided the best way to do. This was to play it straight. Not make it too jokey. Not go over the top with a walk in of it. He veered close to the couple of times, and that was some of the giveaway, but that was also part of the fun with fake noses at the end. And some of the things he said like, you know, people actually listen to this podcast and not knowing what a podcast was or David Spade. Was and Kevin our texting all day yesterday when this was released and just having a good time or on Monday rather having a good time with each other. He listened to it while he was waiting on a plane and just like texting the and we were both. Referring to himself in the third person. Like he kept saying this, and he kept saying that that's out into this. He gets us. Christopher Walken becomes another person entirely. But man, we had so much fun. And thank you for taking part. We dropped it on April. First. I mean, there's no getting around the obviousness of that. But it was a lot of fun to so big big big thanks to Kevin Pollack everybody so talented in so generous and gracious follow him on Twitter. It's always fun and definitely check out alchemy. This his really really wonderful improv show. And I noticed the alchemy fans were some of the first people sniff this out thanks to his use of the word per se, which he does on alchemy this a lot. So that was a bit of a giveaway to but often it's such a good time. Also wanna give out huge huge. Thanks to Nolan Ramsey for being a part of this over the last few weeks and big big heaping. Thanks to our old bud and Kansas..

Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Vogel bomb here. It might seem like fetuses are up to all that much either than growing in the cozy warm environment that is their mother's womb. And I mean growing from a bundle of cells into an independently living breathing human being as a big enough job. However research published in the journal of current biology shows the third trimester fetuses have vision capabilities much more advanced than previously thought and further they can choose what they want to look at. Researchers from Lancaster university in the United Kingdom were keen on expanding the understanding of fetal site capabilities. We spoke by Email with Vincent read, the lead researcher and professor of psychology. He said we've been able to explore the use of all the fetal senses except for up until now there's a lot that we know about newborn babies and their vision. But almost nothing with fetuses just before they're born the newborn is very good at processing faces and prefers to look at faces over any other shape. So it was logical to explore the development of this preference before birth. The researchers examined a total of thirty nine fetuses. There would have been more. But some of the babies were in deep sleep because they apparently missed the memo about participating in a research study while other tests, experienced poor image quality, the fetuses ranged injustice age from two hundred thirty one to two hundred and fifty two days that's about thirty three to thirty six weeks site is the final sense to develop inside the womb with is staying closed until around station week twenty eight this is because. Will retinas aren't developed until that point. Oh, and all of the babies were singleton's, no twins or multiple pregnancies were studied. Because these safety and comfort of the fetal participants and their mothers was upmost importance. The researchers designed noninvasive attempts to assess the baby's visual capabilities to do. So the scientists shown lights through the maternal tissue read explained the light consisted of three dots. When these are arranged to represent two for the eyes and one for the mouth newborn babies prefer to look at them or than anything else. So we didn't show fetuses of face, but an image that was face like. The researchers used forty ultrasound to measure if and how much the fetus has turned their heads in response to the stimuli. They also showed the same pattern, but inverted so it didn't resemble a face in structure to the fetuses as it turns out non face like dots. Weren't as appealing read noted that newborns. Don't find these configurations very interesting either, although subtle attraction to the face, let configuration of three dots makes a big difference in what we understand about developing sight read said, it means we have this preference. Even before we're born. It's either due to being an eight or two experiences prior to birth. Another major finding of this research is that it moves up. The human visual time line read said we now know that the fetus, actively engages with visual information in the prenatal environment. The head movement was a deliberate movement to track the stimuli that we presented. This means that we can now look at many other aspects of fetal vision the study has laid the groundwork for future delving into feet. Vision because as it stands right now little is known about how much pitas conc- read said a week old infant has very poor focal vision, it's all blurred. The same will be true for fetus a few weeks before birth. We know the premature infants can see shapes lights and details, but that's once they are born, and it could be that. The prenatal environment is different we need to find that out. Reads group plans to investigate whether fetuses can discriminate between quantities are numbers, which he noticed something that newborns can do he said if the fetus can do this to this tells us a lot about fetal cognitive abilities were also keen to look at how the fetus sees motion babies prefer to look at intimate or biological motion. If the fetus has this preference? This would suggest that experiences they've had engaging with their own body may have given rise to these preferences.

"I mean, I love that. I shot of him like the we may see Christopher Walken into the very beginning of the movie in his hair. He kind of almost looks like he's already been electrocuted. A little bit his hairs all like kind of you know, zapping out from his head. He looks fantastic movie. He's an awful New York billionaire who has way too much power. Yeah. Could you imagine being the kid who is his son doing his terrible Christopher Walken impersonation at Christopher Walken so choice. That's so choice that terrible terrible thing. It's so good. I can't imagine the dynamic of how he would feel doing that in that scenario. Oh my God. My favorite one of my very favorite seems was at the party when when Batman. Receives playing and Selina Kyle or dancing, and they realize who each other is. And every like, the dynamics between them them just being like do we have to fight? Now that is a hundred percent my favorite scene in any Batman movie Sam yet, and I love it. Because like the revelation isn't isn't owed the secret identities of of Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle like they it's like it's not that man and woman figuring, oh, you're Bruce, Wayne your Selina Kyle. It's the other way around. It's it's Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle figuring out holy shit. You're Batman holy shit. Your cat woman because those are as intrinsic, you know, those are the masks they wear sometimes, but maybe those masks allow them to be more who they are. And to reveal more fully who they are. So it's it's it's, you know, they're discovering something really true and deeply significant about each other in that moment. So the way that this some plays with identity right in like, an the whole idea of masks and way. When are we are truest selves? And sometimes it's win were wearing masks of one sort or another is just so fascinating. Yeah. There's a line Bruce Smith speaks when he first meets her. And he says I missed took me for somebody else. Yeah. And it's a really quick little. Yeah. Piece of work where she has to correct him. And it very much says everything you need to know about that character where Batman is his his true self in is the manifestation of the things that he wants to do. Yeah. I'm Bruce Wayne is this is very shy and very wanting in very in need of love and connection. I love whenever Keaton gets a chance to be kind of goofy. As yes, Wayne, which you know, there's like very few moments of that especially in this film. But that's one of them where he just says this line, and he says it's so straight like I'm a stick me for someone else. It's it's it's so good. I think Michael Keaton is a great actor. I think and I like he is my Batman because I was so young when that Batman came out was the first you know, what? Ever. But I still like washing him as Bruce Wayne, iced it such. I don't disagree. I don't think the casting is bad. But I still kinda like that's really weird cast odd casting. Right. Like, I think a lot of the public thought it was weird canting at the time as well. Like to me, you know, I understand Christian bale as Bruce Wayne because you're like, the charismatic playboy, blah, blah, blah. But but like, yeah. But my keen is kind of like, it will sure he he was a comic Agla. He was the thing. He was probably best known for right before with Beetlejuice, which was also a timber and Phil. But that's why like within the context of what Tim Burton is interested in doing with that man like the casting works. So well, hopefully, like so much better, you know, than than say, Christian bale type would have worked in this particular universe. Yeah. Because I think that Christian Bale's, Bruce is as strong and just different right? It's still allies still very much a mask. But he's still very powerful presence. Where is I I really do like like, Bruce as kind of. Odd. It's less. Interesting is left. Yeah. Yeah. Like by the book alone. Like, even when he's he's sitting when we first see him about to become Batman. They have like the bat signal shined directly into his house, and he's just been sitting holy alone in the dark..

I I will say though, now that I think about it. I think I remember like twelve fifteen hearing a firework, and I fucking perched up from my couch and said to my wife who in God's green earth is lighting off fireworks. But so who cuts cleaner? We're learning a lot tonight guys. This is great already. So we're joined with one of the mining experts. I would say or extraordinaire, he's right up there with not so fast, and our opinion. Crypto Christopher Walken joining us tonight. Come and live from north Florida. I think he said, right? That's where I'm at. So what's good, man? Thanks for joining us. Yeah. Thanks for having me. It's a it's kind of funny 'cause we know we talked about a bit. But me come in on yours kinda made my whole crypto social media shit come full circle. So it's pretty cool to be on her is his actual kind of got me into social media of crypto. So yeah, I love that right into. It's so cool to hear that. And it's like, I'm sorry for sucking you in to you know, recess cool of creditor. But I love here that, you know, at least, you know, we kind of had that impact in the sense. Hopefully, it's not a negative impact. In the long run. But in a. Oh, that's great. So first time on and we're pumped to have you really dive into some mining talk. But how we kind of start out with. Everyone's first time on on. Let's give a background a little bit. Tiffany listening on your background. How you got into crypto? You know, what kind of intrigues you about mining was mining factor of what kinda got you into crypto just kinda go on from there. Yes. Yes. So first off on civil computer nerd like I built my first computer back in like ninety seven I was like twelve years old so big computer game or all that. So mining kind of fell into place. I I about bitcoin back in two thousand ten I'm still active duty navy and a buddy of mine that was on the boat with me, it was mine in it. And he's a he's actually super-rich now on long out of the navy, but he sort of minded in two thousand ten only about it. I thought it was total bullshit. It just was magic internet money. Couldn't do anything with it at the time. You know, so whatever, but a two thousand eleven he started talking about it again. And I decided just started mining bitcoin like inbetween when it wasn't playing video games. I have this little card rig that I was using back, then I was just might gaming, computer. But it was still like one or two day, which was nuts. So fast forward a little bit two thousand twelve I was huge into Diablo three and I found out. That they have these like Chinese servers and you coulda sell like armor pieces frigging gold and stuff like that for bitcoin and vice versa. You could like sell the weapons of stuff. Bitcoins. Started doing that as making money off of that. And that's our dumping that more mining rigs. So I kind of just kept going from there not really social media stuff at all yet employs back then there wasn't much for mining. I mean at read it you had the bitcoin talk or homes, which was really the main hub back. Then it's still is we can talk about that later for spec mining stuff..

For example, if only two brothers named and Rudy dos. Ler had learned to get along Germany's kgab route or dos. Ler might have bested Nike is the world's top sports footwear company today. Instead, the brothers bitter feuding resulted in the brood Ostler brand that's German for dos. Ler brothers being split in half and reborn as a Dita's and Puma which today are the world's second and third top sports shoe businesses eight off or Audie dos. Ler began making shoes and his mother's laundry room shortly after returning home to the Bavarian village of heads Coon oka- following World War One his business did well and his older brother Rudolph or Rudy dos. Ler joined him a few years later to help shy. Audie was the creative force and brains behind the business while extroverted Rudy was these salesmen, the brothers Dassler soon gained a claim for rolling out the first track spikes, but the company really took off after the break. Others persuaded American Olympic athlete Jesse Owens to wear their shoes in the nineteen thirty six Berlin Olympics. He did and he won four gold medals while doing so yet it wasn't quite the triumph. It should have been for the brothers. As things were beginning to sour between the two the bad blooded started a few years earlier in nineteen thirty three when Addy's sixteen year old wife tried to interfere in the business Rudy was not pleased. It didn't help that audience and Rudy's families live together in the same town, home and their wives didn't really get along. But the breaking point came during a World War Two air raid Rudy and his family were tucked into a bomb shelter and as audience family entered Audi said, the dirty bastards are back again. He was purportedly commenting on the Royal airforce planes roaring overhead but Rudy was positive. Audie was referring to his family from there things quickly unraveled when Rudy was called up to serve in the Nazi military in nineteen forty three. He was sure that Audie had arranged it to have him sent away from the factory. Anxious to get back Rudy deserted his post in nineteen Forty-five later when arrested for desertion. He again, blamed ATI who it appears did snitch on him after a few more scuffles. The to split up the company in nineteen forty eight moving assets and employees into one of two competing operations located on opposite sides of the off river that flowed through the town ATI renamed his business. Adidas combining his first and last names Rudy did the same dubbing his Rueda though. He later changed it to Puma soon. Most of the town's citizens were employed by either Adidas or Puma in these siblings, intense rivalry spread throughout the town. If you worked for one company, you did not socialize with employees of the other marrying across enemy lines was strictly forbidden. You only shopped in the stores on the same side as the river as the factory in which you were employed overtime. Adidas far surpassed Puma in sales, thanks to audience creativity and technical acumen, though Puma also did quite well. But while the two were hard at work competing against one another they. Paid no attention to another shoe company Nike that was quietly gaining market. Share today Nike is king of the sports shoe business with thousand seventeen sales of twenty one billion dollars compared to Adidas as ten billion dollars and 'Pumas two billion the brothers did speak to one another a few times later in life. But they never reconciled. Both died in the nineteen seventies and were buried at opposite ends of the local cemetery their feud finally ended in two thousand nine when employees of both companies played together in a friendly soccer match.

We'll send you over the directions. Turns out Rawson carrier drinking p. In my in my original thought was I can do this right, can do this. Again, I thought was I don't care to drink. Yeah. I mean, I'm I'm, I'm like, this has to be like the has to be a filter. This has to be a filtered thing like Waterworld. They have to filter the pe- in the opening scene of Waterworld as Kevin Costner peon into a filter. Oh yeah. I remember that. Good after that. Yeah, we're really mad. You gotta get through that filter. So I'm like, it'll be a filter the or, you know. And I would also kind of crossed my mind it is that you know how there's those, like energy bars that have like crickets in them. Yeah, like it's like, hey, oh, it isn't protein protein. Yeah, you, you know, they grind them up into a little dust. They put them in there with ca cow or whatever, and you got yourself up, you get yourself a nice bar. Right? And I'm like, that's gotta be the thing with the p. is it's gotta be a smoothie or it's gotta be you drink the smoothie and you're like, oh, that's mango. In next apprise. There's pee in there. So you're figuring it's just p binding agent and ca, Cal in movie form, that would be nice. My first thought was place is it? Is it my own as if that would inform my decision? Like, yeah, I thought about that as if well, one thing I have to take into account is, isn't my pe- as if I would then go, well, if it's mine. Great. Would you prefer as long as it's someone else's, would you prefer to drink the p. Of yourself or if someone who has in notably clean lifestyle. Like I'm my first thought is Terry crews. Hilly healthy? Yeah, you know exercises a lot. He's got a clear mind. He's focused. He's driven. Yeah, he's going to give you the good stuff. Say, oh, probably would drink my own p. or what about a diabetic, who's urine? His sweet who. Why didn't Hussein from the saw bones book. Thank you. Lines, the subways. I'm going to try to play that off as a non existent. Wait a minute. Christopher, Christopher Janney plan. We have a Christopher Walken ventriloquist acts funny. It's not popular.

"That's right. Yeah, and much more magical if you magin ringing the doorbell of Christopher Walken house on trigger on Halloween instead of me acting that. So you see the chasm between these two things and then Jamie and I went to see Christopher Walken and the mcdonagh play of beheading in Spokane on Broadway. And so after it's great, you know, mazing actors, Sam, Rockwell, and Anthony Mackie, and the actress whose name I always forget. She's so brilliant, just four hundred. So afterwards, I say, well, let's go up. Jamie, you haven't met him. We, we go to dressing him, say Hello and stage manager. Hi, I guess a friend of Chris? Yeah, series of to. So we go up there. He is. He welcomes us in, we sit down as he sits in front of the makeup. It takes his makeup off. And if I hadn't asked a couple of questions, no one would have spoke the entire time we were there. Wow. Yeah, which gives you the feeling maybe you weren't welcome to begin with. Because a man is play. Looks like it's just an incredible thing to be a part of. Yeah. And then back to the makeup, lot of one word answers and you know, not not unpleasant or seemingly put off by us being there just very little, which left me with, okay. This was maybe as surreal and and as bizarre of of owed experiences as I may not have known I wanted, but did. So yes. So my world around him has been both of those bizarre think it's and then someone sent me a clip of him on on Conan work. Conan ask, said, you know, a lot of people impersonate you, do you have a favorite? And he said, well, Kevin does a great, and then there was a debate online, whether it was Kevin Spacey or me at any rate that's a Christopher Walken story. Now, the last part of our show is called Kevin's pop quiz. Yep. I'm going to ask you three questions between five and fifteen points possible for each of these three questions. Once the final score is tabulated it'll be posted on our website along with the current standing at the top one hundred. Are you ready? Okay. Question number one, Keith, David, or David, Keith. Oh. David, that's correct question to Carl weathers or the weather in Carlsbad. Carl as also true. Last question, Steve Conrad, correct. There's this three for three. He's in the top one hundred mmediately. Thank you so very much. Thank you, Kevin. This is fun. Yeah, just a conversation, longtime fan. And likewise. Yeah, thank you very much for that. And thanks for sharing. With with with candor knees as much of your stories I could get out of you today. Sometime in November season two patriot.

"Show that's very dry and dark comedy drama with espionage at the center of it somehow and also a piping company out of, is it miss concert Milwaukee? Yeah. Yeah. If that doesn't intrigue you enough, it should. Now court would we've reached a point in the show called ask Kevin where you are allowed to ask me any question. It can be sincere. Can't be silly. It can be meaningless or meaningful or none of those. But you are allowed only one question only one I could time these aren't. These aren't meant to be easy. I, you know, the pressure is always that you feel like you have to ask something. Deep, but I just don't deal. Don't have to ask something, you know. So. You can ask about an actual run. I had with Christopher. Welcome what? Oh yeah, this I wanna hear. I do one here so I've been doing improv. I've never. I've never told the guests before. What question to ask me Mark that down where you Sam. So I've been doing the impression of him and I started doing impression Christopher Walken pretty early in the now largeness of it's become pedestrian. Everyone can do a bad Christopher Walken if they tried to many people try, there are if you type in into Google search, Christopher impersonation sometime over sixty thousand search answers. Come up. I'm not exaggerating their five pages on YouTube dedicated to Asians, doing Christopher Walken and they are fucking. So speaking of breaking through the noise I am number one on that Google search now be that as it may. I started doing it on talk shows. I think that's how people find out about it clearly not just because I'm at a party think I can do it. So then I get this call to be one of the two only two speakers at the ceremony when Christopher Walken gets his hands feet and signature in the cement in front of the what was that Mann's Chinese theatre on Hollywood Boulevard. It is a rare honoring of any talent it they've run out of real estate is the biggest problem. Unlike the star in the waka fame which is a very big deal, but you can buy those for fifteen hundred dollars. Now. Whereas the hands and feet and second and cement is an extraordinary. The other of the only two speakers Trump doesn't even have and won't the other speakers Quentin Tarantino. I'd never met Christopher Walken. So I know when they call an asked me to be one of the two speakers, it's because I do this impersonation but I felt bad for him. This is a very big honor. Shouldn't they have people that mean something to him in his life? But that's where I found out that he knew about it the impression because there's, I don't know twenty thirty members of the press that have gathered to stand in front of the podium where Quentin Tarantino spoke I and you know, it's Tarantino's. He'll speak till you shoot him in the head. And had you know, lovely personal stories to tell. Whereas I'm just this idiot monkey, who does the voice. So I, I own that I copped to that Christopher Walken standing over my shoulder as I'm speaking at this podium and I, I said, well, clearly I'm gathered here to be a part of this because of the impersonation. And then I did with Halloween coming up. I did Kris told the story of how I like to scare the kids when they come to the door. And I my favorite ways to answer the door Christopher hay kids trick trade. So damn good question. Quite the conundrum as fate would have it. I two of a question which one little pricks can guess what I've buried under my house kids where you're going. So. As I'm telling that doing that bit, not even a story because it didn't really happen. I see Christopher Walken over my right shoulder slowly, bending at the ways forward in laughter, and there's a little lunch thing afterwards. And that's where I sit next to find out that he likes it knows about it, but it's still surreal. Because of also always said, is someone who doesn't persons. There's no reason to do it if the actual persons there. Because it's a parlor trick. If I can think of someone you like and I can recreate them well enough Allsteel the affection, you have the actual person. But if the actual person standing there, I'm just a monkey doing voice because you can't beat the real thing. Did you would have to write the speech for the real?.

We like to discuss destroy and dissect guilty pleasure movies and decide whether they're truly spoilt milk or if they ascended into fine, looks Yoris cheese. So without further ado, we go. Warning who's podcast is full of spoilers for the title feature on this body language from the start. If you've never seen the film or your fended by Bob language, you hop him warrant. Hello, and welcome to a very special one off episode of the spoilt milk movie podcast of late. We've had a bit of a change in the structure to the way that things work at spoilt milk. And that's due to silly old me cham- getting married. So I've been preparing for a wedding actually having a wedding, and I'm going off on my jollies on my honeymoon. So they last episode was the Hobo and Cutty talking about some recent trailers I folk in loved the episode. All laughing might itself. This time I'm going to use a wedding theme and I'm gonna go through my top ten wedding scenes from films. So in number ten, it was a close toss, oh, between the godfather and another film, but I actually went for deer hunter, the Michael cheeky. No film won't five Oscars including best pitcher. And this is a Vietnam film from the seventies. Deer hunt is a really long film goes on for nearly three hours believe and the first hour is all set in a wedding. Really great seen rarely jokes deposes the violence on the trauma that's going to come later in the film by having a huge one hour celebration of the marriage of the what you believe to be the protagonist, but we ought to find out dinner. We'll take over the film. This film is amazing. It's an absolute classic and is one of my favorites. But I actually would like to just talk about the scene in the bar where deniro Christopher Walken meet the green beret character. So there's a green beret the bar, and he's just having a drink on his own and deniro Walkin and to the bar, and they're very cocky, very brash show in things like put me where they are chin is I wanna see the wall, they're on their way to the wall, and this Beres very silently drinking to himself. The approach him by Madrid. Ink talk about? Yeah. What's the wall like? Tell some stories, and he just replies with fuck it and deniro gets very Robert in air on this one starts together. It more intimidate in what you mean folk it. The Barry sits doesn't really say anything more day narrows kicking off somebody's pulling him back, leave it, leave it. Fuck it. Foco Foco and he goes no by you. Another drink and the guy says, fuck it. Not only is seen an absolute masterclass in acting from deniro ee. Absolutely. Outshines walking in the Centaur film. But it really gives you that sense early on that this isn't going to be a fun film. It's not gonna be a war film set to a poppy soundtrack where everything's Rosie, and maybe you see some guns and so much. And this is going to be a gritty t war film. That just says, fuck it. Number nine, his first appearance of an animated film and it's picks up. So it's not as much about just a wedding scene in general as opening sequence if you've ever seen. Nope. You'll know what I'm talking about. So we're introduced to the character of collars young boy and throughout the film, we get to see that he is a bit bit with life. He's almost given all p. stays at home. He's not interested in the world. But right at the start of the film, we get this show sequence that tells you the story of column. What brought him to the be the mon- the ears we see him meet his future wife as young child, they bombed over a balloon and then they fall in love, and they have this wedding sequence where you just see a photo get taken, and then she jumps on him and kisses him.

It's really lovely, but then turns and you see his wife pass away and how call then deals with going forward. It's an absolutely absolutely beautiful sequence and proper hot me in tears. And it's one of my favorite sequences of any. Film of all time. So yes, a little cheaters. It's not entirely about a wedding, but yet ofa me gotta be there number nine. Number eight, eight. The first comedy of this list. I kind of noticed as I was picking list together that weddings, either fall into Rome comes quite a lot or comedies. Lots of Rome comes lots of comedies, and to be honest, I don't think I really have anything that would class as a rom com in my entire list and things like Four Weddings and funeral, runaway bride not not from for me. So number eight, we've got old school. So old school, the film almost starts with a wedding Franco's. We will then discover will become front the tank. He's getting married to his wife and his best men are Luke Wilson, Vince Vaughn. Now this is been phone on hell areas foam, Vince fallen kind of gone downhill a bit. I mean, he's starting to come back with these weird almost action films. But yeah, as comedy went stale, and he started churning out these films, the intern or the internship, wherever that is an absolute bag of horsh it. But old school really shows you Vince Vaughn comedic chops and shows you that this guy is funny.
