Enjoying Life Through Our Inevitable Mortality With Journalist Suleika Jaouad
"We are as the buddhist master pama trojan has said. We are all programmed for denial. There's something about the human condition that doesn't quite let us take in our mortality. I- often compare it to like trying to get one of my cats to look in the mirror. You just do it. You know or trying to put two magnets together. They won't quite touch. And i don't you know i don't quite know why it is and there are lots of practices in buddhism and the catholic tradition memento mori. Were you carry around like a stone in your pocket and touch it to remind yourself you're going to die and so one can get better at this but it requires a lot of work. Have you now that you are out of that situation. We should talk about how that situation resolved your health your health trails but do you find yourself forgetting once in a while that Before death it's all life. Yeah i forget. All the time i have moments like this morning where i knew we were gonna have this conversation and having a bad hair day and i rushed took a shower and then i felt totally ridiculous because a couple years ago i had no hair and so to be worried about a bad hair day. Especially on a podcast. Is you know a level of absurdity. That i'm fully aware of but i also think that there's there's good reason for why we we can't have that heightened awareness of our mortality if we were all live every day as if it were last we'd go bankrupt and probably make terrible decisions in the world but likely implode and so. I've come to delight in those moments of forgetfulness Because they feel like a real marker of of progress in and healing from me the flip side of that is that you know when i wake up in the morning all often remind myself of when i was at my sickest and might energy was so limited that i could do about three things every day. I could answer an email. I could watch a movie. I could see a friend. But i really had only enough energy to do three things three simple things and now when i go into my day i use as a kind of song exercise for myself of if i could only do three things today. What are the things that would feel most important most rewarding most

Spencer Elden Sues Nirvana for Child Pornography
"What do you guys think about the nirvana lawsuit. It's results so if you remember back in. The day nirvana had their big album. Never mind had a little baby in it. That was naked. Yeah now i will admit even back then. I was like i can't believe they did this. And hindsight i can't believe it even more like i'm really shocked that they were allowed to do it. Got through got through. And and i think they took the some. They edited it on some of the copies like walmart and stuff. But i'm still shocked. They did that so let me just say i'm not taking up for that. I kind of don't understand why they did that. But this dude has spent his entire life making money off that he recreated the picture he has never been full-time has never mind tattooed on his chest. Es nirvana tattooed on him he literally recreated the picture and he said in an interview a couple years ago that was cool with everything until he tried to reach out to nevada to do a gig with him and then they said no and so now he suing so pardon me. I don't have much sympathy for his lawsuit.
Elimination Communication with Go Diaper Free Founder Andrea Olson
"You were saying. You're hardly ever pooped in a diaper. So people listening are like wilbon. Where did they poop in the toilet or with breastfed baby. I let mine poop in the sink better for my back and it just rinse down and it's my sink but you know in the toilet There are these little top hat potties. Also start. I brought those to market a couple years ago because they stopped making them in singapore but in third world countries. You'll come across these top half hotties that you hold between your legs and They go in that. So yeah instead of using the diaper as a toilet use the toilet as a toilet from whenever you hear about e. c. and ec. Elimination communications. Basically you start any time between here. Eighteen months and it's based on their inborn instinct. They don't like their mammals. We are all mammals. And no ma'am all likes to soil. They're den or their caregiver or themselves so when they're crying and crying and you're like oh i've tried everything i've tried the breasts of trade to shush and the five s.'s. The whole harvey carb thing. Nothing is working. My baby is still crying. Then you look in their debris and you're like oh you and poop. You just wanted to be changed. It's actually not what was happening if you rewind a little bit. They're crying so you would take the thing off. Take the diaper off so that they could go hygienically. And if you think about it we wouldn't have lasted this long as a human species if we weren't born with those instincts to be clean and dry and so babies are constantly communicating to their parents. Hey i need this or any of that and with you see is just a matter of figuring out what that is for your baby and yeah it doesn't. There's no i'm too late. And there's no oh i have to do this. Full on every single line poop ec as an exposure technique so literally whenever you find out about it before eighteen months is all good and then yeah you totally do get to start wrapping it up at eleven months or even if you kind of have asked started or whatever and then you're like okay. I'm going to get serious now. She's walking This is a great time. Because in montessori school of thought this is the sensitive period twelve to eighteen months where this is their developmental task so they actually really want control over this during that period. So we always. I always recommend wrapping it up starting at walking and then yet by the time eighteen months comes around like if you remove the diapers early enough. It's so much easier and babies rise to the occasion. They're like oh and they've been watching you. They've been watching you and you're going bathroom and they're like i want to do that and i'm walking and i can and it like it's so straightforward of their instincts
How Pornography Was a Catalyst to Becket Cook's Same Sex Attraction
"Well one of the things that act. I think that really activated. It was early prior to that night when a year or a couple years before that night. I was exposed to pornography for the first time with playboy mac with a playboy magazine. I friends neighbors. Father had playboy magazine stashed under his bed. And i remember him. Showing me the magazines and i was just flooded with this kind of like what is this and flooded with lust and had nowhere to go. Because i was obviously too young to your six or seven. I think i was at like eight. I think it was eight years old. But that lust had nowhere to go so what ended up happening. I think was because of my friendships. My male friendships elementary school. That that let's turn to them. Because that's who. I was around most of the time so i think that was the initial point so i think pornography was the initial catalyst in my case.
How Many Marketing Channels Is Too Many At A Time?
"We're gonna talk about how many marketing channels is too many at a time. So it's funny. Everyone's like oh. Yeah you need omni channel. And eric and i are big on omni channel. Some people you know ask us like. Aw is it too many ongoing after all these channels on it's like nascar and the answer is it really varies. If you're established business you have tons of people. You have a big team. You ideally want to go after all of them and if you're a small business in the short run you can't go after all the channels you need to go after all the ones that are producing the best results have the potential once. You're getting enough results in revenue than you can expand it add more channels than event. You can get to all about at the beginning. Union folks on the ones that are going to drive the biggest r. y. Yeah let's just use a case study here. So let's compare neal's his social audiences versus mine right so let's start with me. I right so thinking about where. I put my focus right now in this podcast. I spent a lot of time on the siegel brain blog over the years. And you know it's a couple hundred thousand visits a month right now which is great and then the other thing i would say to is for a period of time. I focused on youtube and growing pretty well right every video. Put out relatively speaking for my channel. Maybe a couple of thousand and go to a couple of hundred thousand views right for video and that's really good for the channel size because right now my subscribers about sixty thousand or so. It's like huge rights and so at the time a couple years ago. When i focused on youtube. I was getting those at least a couple of thousand per video now when i post on youtube. I'm lucky i get a couple hundred if even breaks thousand rights. It's because i haven't put as much time to focus on it nor have i built up a really big core audience right. This podcast has night's audience. What i would say. Is you get whatever you focus on at the end of the day right so i focused on single blog for a long four or five years before it broke one hundred thousand visits and now it started to compound and so if you go back and now you think about neil where. He's been doing this for a very long time. She started with the creek sprout blog. First and then he started buildings audiences ob and then from there he built his email list up and he started diversify over to youtube and then the other channels well why he has he kind of started made one really big and then everything they kind of spread out the attention right so there's different ways of doing it but what i've said for most people starting out is which is actually this is what neil that you focus on one first and then you branch out.
Travis Barker Vowed to Fly Again After 2008 Plane Crash: ‘I Have To’
"He's a friend of the neighborhood, and we remember this and I do think most people do. But I think some people forget that back in 2000 and Travis worker was in a plane crash where they tragically Four people died. It was only he technically is the only sole survivor from that plane crash because DJ AM passed away a year later. But for a long time, Travis Barker didn't fly, You know, rightfully so, considering everything that he went through, and actually he's been in the neighborhood and you guys have talked about it, and he talked about his experience with it for a couple years. It was real. I'd be in the back of the tour bus just waiting, you know, like impact with something like That I felt in a in a way. I don't think anyone else experienced, um and lived through it that I was always waiting for that. Did you feel the impact where you sleep in the plane?

But then you know, Jenni Rivera passed in her plane crash, and we just kind of you know, And I'm sure Yeah, that any time that would something like that would happen. It would take him so I can't imagine that. Oh, Get him out. No. But the last few years, Travis has said. He's really thought about it more, he said.

The Harley-Davidson Turn-Around Story: Changing the Image of the Company
"I want to ask you about the action steps that you took during those first couple years at harley to lead this epoch turn i know you took hundreds of action steps thousands but can you remember a few of some of the biggest or most the ones that made the biggest impact. We're gonna action steps. Did you take intact going back again. This thought and i it to the combat that you just made about this sort of that that fear that people have for who represented partly writers and what about our earliest mission get over. That was to essentially. Show the world who we really are. Let people see us for who we really are. And i need to tell you that that was an abysmal failure. And i'll tell you why because one of the earliest in greatest lessons. I had gone through. This process came compliments of a woman at the new york times. I called her up inviting her to come to a dealership so that she could talk to sinn riders. You know see just what wonderful people we are. She had nothing to fear As she just cut me off at the knees she goes. I know what you're saying. And i know what you're trying to do and i just want tell you it's not gonna work honestly well. Why not and she goes. All i know is what i see what i see are scary looking rough people rough-looking women on the back. So no matter how you spin it. That's not what i'm seeing and therefore it's not real and that that just kinda hit me a lot of other people like Smack upside the head. Because it's so obvious. It's so true what she was saying that that's not what people were seeing Because we those of us who then writing communities who don't look scary however you define. That didn't have that stereotypically. We never pinned on anybody's radar. We were totally invisible. The overwhelming majority of the hurley. Righty community was invisible to the non. Right he communicates. We didn't look like you know the people that we'd all been accustomed to being afraid of because we didn't match that image so therefore people didn't notice this
"couple years ago" Discussed on WBUR
"A story a couple years ago on Houston. You know, there are a lot of folks in Houston who have differing opinions on climate change. But here's the thing in Houston. The increase in air temperature has led to about a 10 to 15% increase in annual precipitation. Now they have about 6 to 8 inches more of rainfall each year. And they did back in 1970, which is the equivalent of about 45 extra days of precipitation every single year, and so suddenly someone who might have been kind of hesitant as to how a big global weather pattern could affect them suddenly has a way to think. Hey, I've seen flooding in Houston before it's made more likely thanks to climate change, and so it becomes much more real to them. So it really depends where I'm forecasting with whom I'm communicating but trying to get the effects on a local level to show them how it's actually affecting their daily life is really the big Turtle. Do you think that your profession local meteorologists are doing enough to help explain why what's happening locally is happening. I don't to be honest, and I think part of it is that in many regions, the country people are tied down based on sort of the political climate around climate change. I think that there are meteorologists who are starting to lash onto really communicating climate change. And there are many great organizations out there like climate Central, for example, that gives us as broadcast meteorologist, statistics and graphics that we can use on air. I think that's vitally important because Television meteorologist is usually the only degreed scientists the member of the public interacts with on a daily basis. And so if we can be that trusted messenger who is conversing with somebody every day in their living room, then we can have that conversation in a way that they might be more receptive to than hearing it from other sources. I want to ask you a question. Matthew. That is admittedly a little bit outside your wheelhouse. But as you're talking about politicization of science, I think, of course about about Covid 19 and the science around Covid and the vaccines. And, of course, that's a different issue from climate change. But I think one thread that similar is a distrust in science, a distrust in institutions and a lot of misinformation that is Sort of muddying the waters and making it hard for policymakers to take action. That's really urgent as you've watched that unfold based on what you do, and your job is someone whose job it is to look at science and communicated to the public in a very understandable way. Is there anything that you see and go? I do that differently. I think the biggest thing is trying to make people feel smart, and I think so often we see people who are trying to teach science who are trying to get really important information out to the public. Either completely unable to communicate signs to begin with and talking, You know, a PhD level or sort of of babying the audience and really not giving them a credit. That kind of turns off the audience. No matter how you slice it. I want to engage in an educated conversation with with the audience figure out where they are. Teach them something new. And once you make somebody feel like they know a little bit, they're much more interested in paying attention to learn a little bit more climate change is obviously heavy subject, but I'm wondering what makes you excited about whether what made you want to go into this field. I love the fact that every day I can do what I love. I can look up at the sky. See something amazing. And no. Two days are the same. There's always something new that I'm learning something new them seeing something new them getting to witness and I've seen things in my short 23 years. Most people wouldn't ever imagine getting to see I flew beneath the northern lights early this year. I skydived. I chased seven tornadoes. I've gotten softball size. Hail, I've seen multiple total solar eclipses. And I love the fact that no matter how good I get forecasting, there will be surprises. There will be something new, and I think that's one of the biggest messages here is that it's really amazing out there. If people would put down the phones occasionally look up. I think they'd be really amazed by what they saw. And I think it's important to remember, too, that we all share the same sky. And that's that's kind of the bottom line of this. That was Matthew. Go, Poochy, meteorologist for the Washington Post and member station WFMU. Thanks so much for your time. Thank you. You're listening to NPR news. Mhm. The CDC issued a new eviction moratorium this past week. The goal is to keep people housed in areas with high rates of covid 19 transmission. Since the new moratorium doesn't expire until early October. Tenants around the country have a few extra weeks to access some of the roughly $47 billion in federal rental assistance. But getting that money to renters has not been easy. And for the millions who may face eviction, the situation is dire. A lot of them are just desperate, and many of them have gotten to the stage where they're frightened. They don't even want to read. You know the notice on the door or Take the call or go to their rent office and try to explain what's happening there. They're just afraid that you know they can't stop. What seems like It's an inevitable process. That's Lisa. I say she's the executive director of Bridge Ministries in Birmingham, Alabama. It's a nonprofit that provides services to people experiencing homelessness and eviction. Throughout the country. Groups like hers have been asked to help distribute the funds. But she says there are challenges. It's the logistics of it. You know, when you have to have someone come in, and they tell you they need something. That's step one. You still have to go through the documentation process of showing everything on paper, you have to get the cooperation of the person they're renting from. That's not always easy. We've had out of town out of state property owners that we've had tremendous difficulty getting in touch with sometimes even if they want to help. You can't just start writing checks with no due diligence and that's one place, she says. The government can help by providing tax information or other data that can speed up the process of getting money to people. One thing that would help me And this is just me personally is having the different federal systems give us folks to communicate with because, oddly enough, we sometimes need to get in touch with Person running a different system and being able to have a line of communication set up so that we can say is this person who they say they are, for example. This property is actually in existence. That's not a vacant lot. You know weird things that you wouldn't think of. We have to check all that and it takes time. But time isn't something renters have much of Isis says her group has been working with local judges to prevent eviction when possible. Still, despite the challenges, she tells us that she's happy about the people, she has been able to help. And that has been a silver lining. Well, we have a family that we assisted recently It was a woman with several Children. She had been sick with Covid. Two of her Children contracted Covid last year. So, of course she had gotten behind on everything and was barely even feeding them, let alone paying rent and utilities and we were able to go back and catch up all of her utilities as well as her rent. And she is got a job working online now, which is great. That's what she needed. She needed something to help catch her up and then sustain her for a little longer until she was able to get pretty much back on track, and that's what this is designed to do. That was Lisa.

"A couple years ago October of two thousand seventeen if you're looking for a date we did an interview with the CEO of the biggest hotel chain in the world Arne Sorenson and I had a Cup of coffee in the dining room of the Ritz Carlton on Central Park south in New York City Ritz is one American brands that's the company that's runs and runs and we had a long talk about the travel and hospitality business and what he saw from where he sets suffice it to say that that business looks really different right now so we got our insurance on the phone to talk things over Mr Sorenson is good to have you back on the program thank you okay good to be with you again so I have to tell yeah obviously we've all been following the the course of the economics of this crisis I kind of realized it was gonna get real serious when I saw America mountain say we're probably gonna have to lay off tens of thousands of people when did you know it was gonna be serious well there was a sort of creeping sense for a few days that this was bad we had a weekend maybe three or four weeks ago when the news left China and showed up in Korea in Italy I think that was sort of filled with foreboding because it looked like it had left Asia and it was moving around the world and it looked it looked likely at that point time that was going to move in the United States in some manner but it was in the week or maybe two weeks after that that we started to see business simply disappear you said on CNBC the other day we want people to be strong enough when we re open which yes of course we do but what does it look like to you there it's gonna make merry at strong enough to reopen because there's months to go on this yet with nobody going to hotels well there's obviously a lot of uncertainty about when we start to tiptoe back out in the life I think even more importantly than that and something we've spelled off a lot of time with them talking with politicians both on the hill and in the administration the last few weeks is let's make sure that the tools to support our people are set up to be available immediately to them at levels that allow them to survive not have too much disruption in their lives and so that they too were ready to get back let me dip into the political here for just sections you alluded to it are you satisfied that this two trillion dollars from Congress is going to be enough for you can have are they gonna have to go back to the well as it were it is a eight hundred page bill that it won't surprise you to hear many of us have not read yet and we're really trying to digest what is in there I'm encouraged by what they've done with respect to the unemployment insurance scheme I'm encouraged by what they've done in terms of loans to small businesses and remember many of our hotels are owned by third parties virtually all of them often run by those third parties and they are small businesses and then of course you got some provisions on loans for others including bigger companies I'm not sure that will need any of those but I think the tools that are in there are powerful biggest biggest bailout of all time obviously two trillion dollars do they have to go back to the well again maybe but only if it lasts for probably more than a quarter so would be my guess less thing Mister Sorenson and then I'm gonna let you go and it's I'm gonna take a turn of the personal here and and and I'm just gonna see how it goes so you put out a video on Twitter a week ago today which somehow seems like a really long time ago to all married employees and we should say here you are being treated for pancreatic cancer you look like you are being treated for pancreatic cancer he said in the beginning this video the your advisors had suggested you not do video maybe because of that and you won on you deliver to really sober but fundamentally uplifting message but I wanna get to the end of it the thing around like five minutes and it was clear to me at the end that you've got emotional and I guess the question coming out of that is are you scared I am how to answer that question I I am five of the impact to the thousands of people that we've got across the world who depend on the work that they do for us for their livelihoods and for their families livelihoods and I'm terrified that they have the resources that they need in order to get through it it is still early in this process wild furloughs have happened across the world young people are getting used to that were in the first week or two in the United States where that's the case number a few months in advance of that across Asia Pacific but the impact people's lives will be profound and I we took three takes on that video and I'll confess that I didn't choke up in exactly the same sentence every time but I did choke up every one of the three times and I wasn't intended to me and I said to the crew afterwards figure out which can use from that but I choke up because I just think of the profound impact to the lives of folks who have zero responsibility for the crisis that we're in and who will pay a price which is much higher than they deserve to pay they don't deserve to pay any price I am so we've got to find a way of communicating with them being transparent with them to get through this together we will ultimately people will come back to life because were resilient people all across the globe including particularly in the United States but we gotta get there sooner rather than later in order to minimize the payment so many will be RT

But they didn't want to give it to the losing team. But he's a winner. He's a he's a glue piece. He's smart as hell. He's he's now what the VP of the head or the VP. I think he's a second in command the vice president VP of the new of the of the players association. That's a new thing for Andre. So it'd go he's a smart guy. Oh and to make a ton of money off the floor, but he's not a hall of fame basketball player. He was he was an all star one time one time all star one time all star and though his now in Kelly. He had his Beyers at an eighteen game. Had a nineteen other eighteen a high flier, Arizona. Hey, nobody say not a great player. It's a hall of fame made it this listen nine points. Eight point seven points seven point six point six points. His last one two three four seven years. You know, man. That's what he you got Brian. He was one of the best athletes in the league when he came out. I mean look at right out of the league the shoot he played eighty two as a rookie. Then he had eighty two is the second year. Yeah. Eighty two is the second year player, then seventy six. Eighty to eighty to eighty two you know what I'm saying. I mean, this guy at the beginning of his career was a thoroughbred who just absolutely could run and run all day. I mean, he was that kind of player Arizona. So let me give you the example who's got Robert ory has what seven rings? They're kind of putting him in that range. Hag Robert ory is not in the hall of fame. You know what? I mean, he happened to be ghetto. Was he Robert ory wasn't an all star. Was he have to look it up dollars. Probably a better player than Robert something breaking Bri. Yeah. Alex Pavlovich has just tweeted that the giants are not positioning themselves as a short term solution for Bryce Harper per sources. The two sides have discussed a ten year deal. There you go. Larry baer. There you go. Well, that's that's great here. Your choices. If your brakes. Do you want short-term west coast winner dodgers, long term, big money, west coast? Non winner giants. Currently you don't need big shots or. Wrongs Herman the giants. Correct. That makes you think that makes you think that the giants may get him. Now, here's why because you know, Boris is not gonna go short time. There's no way he wants the motherload. He wants the ten year four hundred million dollar target the target in the off season was ten years. Four hundred million. That's the target and in and now it's like he I think the two numbers they want want to eclipse. They want to eclipse what Machado got and they wanna clips what bright would Stanton got last year or a couple years ago on the extension from the Marlins few years ago now, so that's three hundred and twenty five million. So would you go would you go tannin three fifty thirty-five year? If you're the giants and in their situation where their farm system has some young pieces. Markelle Luciano, Joey. Bart. You know, they've got some guys come in. But it's to there two years away. Three years away would knows this the kind of peace that would soften your rebuild. Absolutely. I think he absolutely would be. I don't think they would win. But I think you know, what would they be their seventy three and a half in Vegas right now. What's price worth became here? I would say I would say at least ten wins probably closer to fifteen. I think the giants would be for sure five hundred club with him and maybe a little bit better than that. Because I think if they're in it in the middle of the season, I think they would add. So to me, he's a taste for sure was worth ten wins. We had somebody on earlier this month said about five wins was Jimmy Duquette. We had him on. And I you asked him. How many wins is Harper equate and he said four or five maybe five or six something like that. I think it's more than that. I think he's miscalculating. I think it's more double I think the giants go from seventy seventy three win team to an eighty eighty three win team little bit over five hundred. It's a big jump. But don't wouldn't you agree. They're better than five. They're not. I don't think with Harper. They would finish sub five hundred his first year. I think there's enough pitching depth. I really do. I think when when when you get right down into the meat and potatoes of the next three weeks and the cactus league. And every day you're gonna. To throw somebody else out there. I think you're going to see the giants have decent pitching depth. But what they don't have anything approaching a dangerous batter in the field. Don't you don't, you know? Here's the thing. Only if we look inside Harper's brain, I think all of us when we're buying a car, you go I read probably rather have this. When you're when you're we like to play around a little bit when you're dating a woman, you got a couple that you like when I really kind of prefer this when you're picking a school for your kids. I think this is the one that in other words if Harper really prefers the dodgers. And that's the thing. Does he want to go to? I don't think he's gonna go short short-term, Gary. I don't think the dodgers. That's my point is that they got right down to brass tacks. Go long term. They don't need him. They really Bill Plunkett said that I and that's just it. But if he really wants to go there, I mean, I wouldn't go. If the giants offered ten at roughly thirty million a year, I wouldn't go five for thirty million a year. No. If somebody jacked it up to thirty five million a year for five or seven go five years two hundred million. That's forty a year. Would you go five years at forty year to LA or in my really ten years at thirty five million a year for the giants that could be it? But don't buy this Larry that we all know, we want you should know we all know where we really want to be. And so you try and work it out there, right? Right. Go to any place. You don't see that pressures here though, you got the players union players union watch the highest porous so Boris Boris goes agent. Tell me to go someplace, I don't wanna go. I hear you know. But I mean Boris wants to numbers he wants more than the average annual value of any pre existing contract and he wants the biggest contract so he wants more than three twenty five. And that's to get the big headlines where everybody goes man, Scott Boris is the guy if you want to hit the mother lode yuko sign with Scott Boras. Yeah, no doubt. If he if he gets more per year than thirty if he can go for thirty five year any wins. He wins there. And if he can go for more than the total three twenty-five that Stanton. Got he wins there as well. Yeah. I give them that LA. He gets one. But not the other here he could get both and he'd have to withstand not really being. In the lineup. That's reality. And a team that's gonna finish more like five hundred and maybe might be twenty games out. Dodgers may win one hundred games this year and the giants may win with Harper eighty two you know, what I mean? So it could be could be one of those years where you're not in the playoffs. But he didn't make the playoffs last year. You know, I just hate being pessimistic. But I at the dodgers you're in it. And you keep again stood Harper grew up a dodger fan and a Laker fan. And it's a little bit closer, you know, couple of couple of minutes a little bit closer than San Francisco. I take five though, or you're just banking, then they're gonna break. I don't think they're gonna break. I don't think they need him. Five years. I think you heard punk say it lasts. You saying, you know, with with their past offers that they don't they're not gonna play these dickering back and forth games. They feel like they're a World Series contender maybe a World Series favorite, and they've got real value. And they don't need him. But here's the thing. Here's the one. If I'm the dodgers, even though the giants got a long way to catch me. I don't want him in my division, you know, to write because he went back to Philadelphia fi. But do I wanna do the times a year? Let's be real about this. The dodgers the giants. I should they. I know. And that's always been the thing that San Francisco when we were growing up remember that? Oh, the giants always second to the dodgers right for all those years in the sixties. Yeah. We go way back and that was always. Well, the giant fans hate the dodgers more than dodger fans got abreast giants. Organization doesn't doesn't look if the giants has even the number one competition than division. I bet you. They look at San Diego, and Colorado is the number one compass Harper goes there, I think that changes the dynamic maybe not so much the first year on wins. But that goes to wear it all of a sudden the giants become at the very least. Now, if midseason there they suck they suck. But at least go to the season there's hope again for the franchise right now. I know, but I mean think about that. Barium now and go up there. The giants are at seventy three and a half wins. Dodgers are projected by Vegas to win ninety six. That's a twenty three game in edge. I mean, come on. We're not worried about the giants and say that they're going home. I don't know if you're in a negotiation. Don't you wanna win? Why are they going this far? I mean, they wanna win. They have one they've gone to the they've won the national. Harper is extreme years, if you've gone this far what the hell I wanna I wanna win. I wanna get the guy. It's either it's one of two things. It's the giants. Make the giants. Go long-term. Make the giants do what they don't want to do. Yeah. In a in a in an in an ideal world, we're far hunting Larry get together. The giants get Bryce Harper on a short term deal that's more prudent. But that's the that doesn't reflect the giants desperation the giants are desperate. So why would they why would they get Harper on a sweetheart deal when they're desperate when there truly desperate where Scott Boras can just put up his his his laptop and say guys, by the way, this is your outfield currently, and that's it. That's all he's got to say. Here's your roster. I want this. Do you wanna play games? You wanna play games you want? You want the guy? So I it's interesting. I looked at this is the giant at the when I got here this morning. I saw that carry Crowley's. Quote. I thought man giants have set up themselves to be the stalking horse thereupon. They're not a player. But after reading Pavlovich's thing that the giants are willing to go long term. Now, it's long-term Philly or long-term giants or short term short term dodgers. And I think long term is going to rule the day..

"What is the subtitle? The dragon tattoo story or dragon tattoo story. This is in that universe. But it's not a sequel to the demon fincher movie from a couple years ago. We've been kind of wondering like if this movie is any good in the first screenings happened where in Rome, I think I think so. Yeah. And you were at up a write up, you know, rounding out the few reviews that we actually have is this movie worth seeing then it seems like sort of a mixed response. So cater bland at any wire singles on clear for his performance as Lisbeth Salinger. She's the new girl with the dragon tattoo and says that she's basically really great. She's just as good in this movie as she isn't Dame inches. I man according to cater bland, and but like, unfortunately, she says the story is sort of Laden with undercooked. Relevant relevant. Revelations excuse me and loses much of its momentum. During the saggy middle section. It's sort of like reactions are sort of all over the place like somebody at the Hollywood reporter says that it's edgy and action packed and Alvarez feted Alvarez who's the director of a movie called don't breathe that came out a couple of years ago. He's stepping into the director for this film and Alvarez's direction keeps the tension high through a slew of ever-more improbable threats to Lisbeth and her allies. But then over at variety critic there is the harshest of all of the reactions that I've seen so far saying that while the movie delivers some big bang thrills. The entry feels like a betrayal to the character of Lisbeth Selander because it quote reduces her to a quirky bat girl like figure soft-pedalling her feminism practically eliminating her queasiness and tossing in an American so the US can save the world. So I mean, I really like like I said kind of a mixed bag. I saw about thirty minutes of early footage from this not too long ago. Got talked about it on the podcast, and I was. Very interested to see this new take on the character. It it. Somebody else tweeted that it reminded them of like a JAMES BOND kind of thing. And that's the impression that I got watching a little bit of that early footage. So I dunno Alvarez's direction in this looked to me, very sleek and slick and sort of like this icy bond style thing, I don't know how well people are going to react to that. Who were like big Fran a big fans of this particular franchise, but in terms of like, maybe grabbing new of audiences who haven't seen the fincher version or haven't seen the original Swedish trilogy. Maybe that's what they're going for here. Although you as you just alluded to the title with this ridiculous subtitle means that they're really trying to hammer home the idea that this is part of the same world. So I I don't know what Sony is really doing with this. But Chris, what do you think about this? I think I'm going to wait for Blu Ray for this one..

"Already given fast fast nine whatever you wanna call it we don't know the official title with that movie yet but they've already given fast nine a release date so that one comes out in twenty twenty so i guess in order to make sure that both the spinoff and this new movie fast nine are able to sort of hit those targeted dates they decided to hire dan casey and he is an up and coming screenwriter he wrote a scifi thriller called ken that has james franco attached that's going to be coming up soon he actually did some rewrite work on a technical revealed lane dan trachtenberg sequel from a couple years ago and he has a lot of projects sort of percolating in the worst he's supposed to be working on a remake or sequel to the craft and and adaptation of killer be killed which is a comic book from at brubaker so he is one of those big you know hot up and coming guys and and yet he's been tapped right fast and furious nine i haven't really seen any of the work that he's done yet because most of it suffered ten cloverfield lane but i think most of it is sort of you you know know he's he's one of those guys who has a lot of heat right now as they say in the biz and he's just you know he's writing a lot of spec scripts and projects that are sort of percolating but they haven't actually come to production yet now how do you think vin diesel feels about like the architect of the fast and furious franchise being pulled away he's not able to raise fast nine and he's he's he's writing the rocks off yeah i know that the i'm sure he's probably not happy about that especially because i know that i interviewed chris morgan when the fate of the furious came out last year and he was talking about how good a relationship he has within diesel and their those two guys are really batting around script ideas all the time so it's interesting that that morgan seemingly chose hobson shaw over fast nine because they see they easily could have gotten somebody else to write that movie and arguably would have made more sense for universal to hire somebody else to write that spinoff film because.
