"danger room" Discussed on Crypto Current

"The universe then continue to grow and be a business? Well, it's very difficult to make enough content that you can stay ahead of a community. They can choose your content. It's an astronomical rate. And one thing I learned with the APB project is we created a character customization engine where you can go create your own characters, you could address your own characters. You could become make your own fast in line essentially within the game. You create tattoos, et cetera. I was so excited every morning to get up and look at YouTube and see what people had created. And the bottom line is they created better things than they developers. They had put more time into it. It blew me away in APB. At the launch, you know, well over 80% of the time where people creating their own characters. They're investing in building something. They wanted to be part of this community when you invest the time and hours to create a fantastic character to love. You're going to stick with that game for a longer period of time as well. So I actually fully believe in the creators, I believe creators are successful. They're phenomenal creators worldwide. They don't all get the same opportunities that you can in countries that make video games. There's people sitting out there in countries. They just have no opportunity to be in that we get video game industry. What I'm trying to do is provide professional quality assets to let those people have an opportunity to make content. If they entertain our community, then we will compensate them. What's really exciting about our communities. We find games that have millions of players. We feel that we can make games again that attract meal in some players. So if they have their own heroes, they're going to be those millions of players are going to be looking for places to drop in their heroes. So that kind of sells the user acquisition problem. You know, there's like 4000 games a month on steam. How does a small developer get noticed? But in our particular case, if you're a small developer, you develop for the universe, we have a hungry army of people that have these materials, these NFTs, they've invested personal time in and money in. And they're looking for places to drop those here as in and be entertained. Definitely. And I think that's the most unique piece of this. It's like, having this asset that you can grow with and go and play multiple games over time and have completely different experiences. I think that is extremely unique. Something that another question that comes to mind now is, as you look at the road map of this, is this going to initially drop on computers? Is it going to be on virtual reality? Is it going to be for mobile devices? Talk to me about that side of it. And then for the person who's hearing all of this right now and they're fired up and they're like, I want to use this, either want to play this game, or I want to be building on this. Where can they, what are some next steps that they can do to learn more? All right. So first of all, we'll start on PC, but we support our SDK supports both the Unreal Engine and unity. So because of that, it can go mobile. It can go console, et cetera. So it'll roll out over time. So you can go to your university dot com and check it out. We're launching a collectible series next week, giving away just tons of NFTs, and we're doing it in a very creative way. We're telling the story of the university of the NFTs would give people can collect that NFTs at events where I speak or others a team speaks or collaborative companies speak. We will give away all these NFTs. And then we're going to play a little game with them on not really going to give away what we're going to do with that yet. But that's going to drive our whitelist and giveaways of our heroes, et cetera as well. You can go to our Discord channel. We do a lot of fun things that are just for our channel because people get involved with the project very early on. We share assets constantly. We call it work and process what we're doing. We have talks. We have world building discussions. We have our authors come in. We have our designers come in. If you want to learn how to make a game, being part of this community, I want to say this over and over and over. The universe isn't my project. It's the community project. The universe is owned by our community. We're creating the characters and the stories and the missile gains. But I'm really unleashing this. And so in our community right now, we're starting the first aspects of creating. So we have a creator track for people. Right now they're designing the first T-shirt for us. They're going to design animated logos. And then they're going to do texture maps for our characters that leave them to concept doctrine characters. And they'll kind of get creator points and people with career points and get rewarded as well. So we have people that work on slogans in our community. They don't have art skills. They do that. We have some phenomenal artists every single day. There's just fantastic art out there. And we're just want to keep them comedians all that eventually will unleash the SDK. And we'll give it to the community. We'll give them everything for our code to our 3D models to our rigging to our animations and just let them go create what they create. And I'm telling you right now, you and I can't predict what they're going to create. And that's wonderful. And they will exceed our expectations and positive. I am too. It's amazing how creative people can be when you give them the tools to go and be creative. And you can just sit back and watch and things just be built out and multiply over time. As I'm looking at this and as I'm learning more about everything you have building here, obviously this took a big vision and this is going to take time to kind of build out and get it to the ultimate vision of where things are. As you're looking at some of the first steps to this, what do you think are those first initial pieces that's really going to help be the clue that brings your community together and gets them to stay as this grows over time? So like you said, it's a large project. And we literally have dozens of weeks of releases we've planned. So we get this we want the backs throughout their character's story. We want our community to actually go out and write adventures for our characters, et cetera. We are going to do some kind of as we do some short films. We have novels, the comic book is looking phenomenal and will be released in a series of comic books will introduce each character via comic book as well, so they can learn. We want people just, you know, the more you soak up about this, the more you get, I don't know if you ever watch a television series like Game of Thrones that goes on for years and years, but you really get into the characters and you're really invested in them and the story. And at the same time in the background, we're going to build enough three at three different games that prove that the characters can be interoperable between the games and we'll have some big NFT offerings for our heroes and we have an exciting way to deliver them as well. We want a lot of the value of the value chain of the game to actually go to the community. So we feel the people that support us earliest will get kind of some of the most valuable assets in the game and many of them be free. And by ticket to support us in drumming up support for us, they'll do very well with those characters. They'll have the coolest things in the game that games as well. So this is a long project. It's going to take developers in our year to make their game. We've been making ours for quite a while as well. We have phenomenal people involved when the first investors in our project was Dave Jones. Designer, you know, he did lemmings. He did Grand Theft Auto crackdown a to be some of the projects we were on. I went and told my dear and I said, hey, what if we did this and what if we gave it all away? And he came back to me and says, you know what? I don't know Grand Theft Auto. I don't know, I mean, Sony also means I don't know, crack down. Microsoft phones crackdown. You know, I would love to design a game for the universe and give it to the community because I'm not going to own it at the end of the day anyways. And so that was validation of what we were doing. And then we got to phenomenal artists and explain to what we're doing. And I'll drop what we're doing and I want to join universe because I would love to make something that the community owns versus a large corporation. So that's just the consistent thing. We have all these amazing creative people. And if you go to a Discord channel, we have people constantly, what can I do? What can I build? How can I help? That's the attitude we want. And we're just building an army of support. And the more people support us, the bigger and better the universe can be. Definitely. There's like two reoccurring themes that keep coming up. And the course of this conversation, I want to spend a little bit of time on it. And one is story and the other is community. And when I think about every good game that I've ever played, it's the story. It's the plot. It's the character building and development in the payoff eventually at the end or the big reveal or whatever it is. And how much time and thought and energy goes into really crafting that story. So I want to start there, how is it that you at the beginning of this and obviously you have a ton of experience with gaming to really start with your investment in making sure that the first games that you come out have a really good story. Is that just through your experience? What is making you want to spend that much time on the story side of things? Yeah, so we have a world building series and we have videos if you go to our Twitter, the university you can see Brent Friedman discussion discussing how he was so excited to be involved with the project at the beginning and not be pulled in after the fact. You know, he was involved in the command and conquer type series. And he's like, they're brought them in afterwards to create a story. And he had to make a fit with all these things that were already created. But what he loves is he can go on there, and it can just build a really rich, diverse world that can house multiple games. You have to think of this like Star Wars, or you have to think of this like Marvel Universe. It is got that much depth and that much written richness. So our chief storyteller, he's worked at Lucas ranch and Star Wars. He's written con wars episodes Walking Dead. I think all the last four or 5 call of duties. He's done all the dialog for the last call up there for the call of duties. He's just a master writer. And we explained to him what we're doing. He just started laughing and he said, I want to be involved with this. And I get to build something up from the beginning. So he's been working since last year, building this out. And we have an army of 25 writers are writing stories for different portions of the universe to give it the depth. So each game will have can tap into this wonderful story. So he's really there. He's kind of the center of the wheel to make sure all the pieces fit together in properly and there's a weekly meeting that goes through it nice sitting on every single week and I'm just there's so much cool sci-fi technology, new worlds in different species. It's just, it's just fun and fantastic. You're going to enjoy reading the books, looking at the comics. It's whole franchise. I'm playing the games as well. So story is huge and very key to the universe. And what I love about that, just to bring it back to what you were just saying, even like thinking about the Marvel Universe, there's so many different elements of it. So just for the builders out there, for example, let's say that you made like an X-Men type world, and you have all these different mutants. So now you have these indie games that could come in create a mutant specific storyline that still ties into the larger story. And it's still on brand. You still can bring your character to all falls in place. And having that type of depth of storyline is so cool. That I just wanted to be able to echo real quick. Like how awesome this vision is. But now it's shifting over to the community side and I think this is the most important piece to build true community in the build these extravagant games take years of development. I don't think a lot of people really realize how much energy and time goes into mapping all of this out to really build a community that comes in survives the test of time and grows with you over time. What lessons have you learned through your journey in gaming to make sure that the community aspect is as strong in the right steps are being taken to really mold a really congruent community that aligns with what you're trying to build with your vision. I think the most important thing is we just share with them. You know, so every discussion we have internally, we record and we have our team, our community team that are taking excerpts out of that and trying to feed the community. So they can actually see the background, however character is developed or how there are style was developed for this particular world. You know, how we thought about each element of the game. So if people want to go along on the journey and really see how games large franchises are built, this is a phenomenal project to tag along to. I think the more time the people sink into that and the more they play around with the assets that we freely give to the community. I think they'll get more and more sucked into what we're doing and they'll be loyal. They'll be so loyal to the property because it's their property. The union universe, I can't say it is. I'll say it over and over. It's their project. It's going to go as far as the support that they give us will allow. And so, you know, just open channels of communication, given them access to what we're doing, letting them play, even though a games take longer to develop, we're going to release things like a danger room where people can go in and take their character that they bought. Because you have to remember, we're not a PFP. We're not little piece of artwork over there. It looks cute. When people buy, it's a fully 3D animated character, this game ready, and we'll have like a danger room that can drop in, run around and obstacles shoot things, have fun, et cetera. But it does take time to then fully integrate that into the story. And to build a choice of the game that can entertain, entertain people for dozens of hours versus 15 or 20 minutes. Definitely. Yeah, and I think that's amazing. And I think you've given so much amazing info on all things you knew are very, but I kind of want to wrap up with two fun questions, always like to ask my guests. And the first one I want to ask is if you could impart one to two pieces of wisdom to Tony Harmon when you first got started in your journey. What would you tell yourself? You have to you have to love what you're doing. If you don't love what you're doing, just get out. I start out in the finance world. I absolutely hated time stood still. I could not get through the day. You know, and everything in my life that was exciting and had nothing to do with my job. You know, I'd get out of there and go play softball tennis, whatever. And when I made a commitment and I said, look at this is life is going to be long and it's going to be really tedious. I want to do something fun. I want to do something every single day be excited about what I'm doing. I literally walked in the front door and Nintendo. And I went into Nintendo and I said, I will do anything in this building. Give me an opportunity. So I want people to realize it takes that level of commitment. And your life will be so much more fulfilled and time will go buy some faster the proud of what you're doing. When I started making video games, my dad was not proud of me. I can tell you that for a fact, you're not going to law school? No, I'm making games. So you just have to do what you have a passion for. If you do something you have a passion for, you will put more energy into it. There'll be less wasted time in your life. And I think the results will show and tap into the creative energy. Everyone has creative energy. I mean, I'll be art. It could be music. It could be writing, tap into that creative energy, because that gives you a spark and make your life a lot more enjoyable. I think that's a great gym. Everyone listening go back to this Ted a couple of times. I think it's always a good refresher that one of the things that COVID did for the world was to make people reflect on where they had in their lives. Are they doing what they want to do? How can they follow that? And I think you in part in that wisdom is just another good refresher of, if you're not necessarily doing the thing that you want to right now, how can you start taking the steps to go in that direction? And making sure that you're in your passion if you're already in your past, you congratulations, keep going at it and keep thriving, but I think that is an excellent piece of wisdom. But as we wrap up here, man, what is a final thought that you want to leave with all the listeners today? The universe is your project. Please check it out. It's the community's project. You can have a lot of fun with this. We're going to bring a lot of great content to you. Very rare, rarely do you get to participate in something very unique. Just think if you could go back on George Lucas was thinking about Star Wars and he was still in that and you could read some expert excerpts of his story and see some of the initial art. He's done. That's what you can do with this project. You can get involved from the very beginning. You can check out what amazing people in this industry are doing. I have decades of experience in this industry. I've tried to share this with my friends and industry and bring the best talent that I've worked with over the last 20 plus years into this project. So come check out the universe. I'm super excited to support creators. I will support them in every way I can the rest of my career. That's awesome. And I think that's a great final thought as a reminder you can go to universe dot com to get more information where you can follow them on Twitter in Discord. Are there any other ways that they can learn more information or potentially connect with you, Tony? No, I mean discords are primary communication mechanism. We fire out a lot of things on Twitter just because it's a way to reach a lot of people quickly and bring new people into Discord. But on our Discord, we have creator channels. We have founders come in. You can actually earn your way up to be a founder in the project and kind of get legendary status in the project. Legends in our world get to see secrets earlier than everyone else because they've earned their way up in that sense. So there's a system in a game we play so you can kind of rank up within it and we're really seeing that universe collectibles next week. So that's a great way to get involved. All the collectible NFTs we have, we want to teach people from the gaming world about NFTs. We want to teach them about the universe every little piece that we give out, tell some of the story. So some of the phenomena are what we're doing and gives people three things to collect, and then we're going to play a little game with these collectibles down the road that's going to have an exciting outcome to it. Excellent. Well, I know I'm excited to learn more for everyone listening. If you're fired up about this, make sure you go learn more about you a very soon. Check out the website. Make sure you join the Discord, see if you can get legendary status. And Tony want to say thank you again for joining us. And as always, state cryptocurrency.

"danger room" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM

"From tell our listeners briefly what it's about Go back to where you came from and other helpful recommendations and how to become American Is about loving a country that doesn't always love you back And how the rest of us are both citizens and suspects us and them and how this country can turn on us on a dime But at the same time it's about how we can move forward as a multicultural country And I hope it is done with humor and it ends on earned hope not some hallmark a sugary confection but earned hope and the earned hope is by working through the challenges So that's the book Just one perspective my perspective but I tried to use my story as kind of a narrative spine to make a commentary about America and connect the dots for the rest of us The introduction of your book comes in hot You start by sharing some of the most offensive letters you've received from readers and viewers And then you write some snarky responses I'm wondering in real life how often do you respond to often racist hate mail or tweets That's a good question I get those emails every single day When I used to write in the comments section and articles my editors always used to turn off the comments section because they're like you don't want to read this And oftentimes it was benign stuff but it was because of who I am my name my ethnicity and my religion that all of a sudden I became a target I'm sure you get it all so you can sit here and talk about potato chips and somehow someone would make it like a racist That's how it is And you kind of take some dark humor with it and I think it depends on my mood and about once a week I'll respond to a go back to where you come from And if someone really spends a long three page emissive which they have then sometimes I have some fun with it and sometimes I share it with the public Because I feel like oftentimes we're asked to be like daffy duck get angry and upset but sometimes I want to be like Bugs Bunny you know If you really think about it right But as bunny's always chilling they're always after him but he always uses their traps against them and sometimes he dresses up as a girl and kisses them and then sometimes he just mocks them but he always gets the last laugh And I want to make sure I get the last laugh in the last word Yeah Bugs Bunny didn't work hard He worked smart There you go He was a smart bunny You know so much of your life changed on 9 11 And a big turning point in the book is that event and what it meant for you going forward I want to go back to that scene because it was very vivid for me as I read it Where were you when you found out about the attack 20 year old UC Berkeley senior undeclared in my pajamas woken up by my roommate in our apartment a mile away from UC Berkeley He knocks on the door and I'm sleeping He's like you gotta get up I'm like come on man It's freaking exhausted I stayed up all night playing NBA two K then ten minutes later I get another knock You really have to get up and see that something's happening So we're both in our pajamas blurry watching the tower on fire Maybe the pilot had a heart attack That's what happened He was trying to land the plane maybe a Laguardia something happened And then you saw the second plane go Once you saw the second plane that's when we realized something this was deliberate And right there and then you kind of do the minority prayer which all minorities know And the minority player goes something like this Please let it be a white guy And if you're white or self identifies white it's not because we want any harm to come to you going full circle with the beginning of this conversation We realize that when it's a white person all of whiteness is not convicted Well the white guy is like this lone wolf who was misunderstood you know Just a dude You know crazy dude did it You want to have white uncles and white aunties in your community having to like stand up like Uncle Sam with flags like waving in the air and saying I love America and let me prove my moderation and come to my churches and won't be investigation and surveillance and hearings right Like you won't be held you won't be interrogated or indicted and have to prove your loyalty or prove your whiteness But for the rest of us we're effed all of us collectively And then when they saw that on the scroll at the bottom suspected Osama bin Laden and Muslims that's when I remember I closed my eyes and I just realized things were going to get really bad And I was a member of this Muslim student association I was elected to the board And I joke that had Muslims known that 9 11 would happen these horrible conspiracy theories which we did not know because Muslims also died that day I would have joined the Indian student association and I would have learned how to do punga or whatever you do though Do not join the sick student association because that poor group got screwed First hate crime after 9 11 was a sick man in mason This shows you how stupid racism is 19 four and hijackers 15 from Saudi Arabia to from UAE one from Lebanon one from Egypt brought down the two towers killed 3000 people And so the first hate crime after America was in mesa Arizona where a white supremacist blamed a middle aged sick gas station owner balbir Singh for the violent acts of 19 foreign hijackers because he was brownskin had a beard and a turban and he was sick Bigots aren't nuanced This country lost its damn mine after 9 11 And so here I was a Muslim student association board member and I had Muslim women born and raised in America emailing me Should we go to school There are hate crimes We're afraid I had my first hate mail Just think about it I'm in California born and raised in the Bay Area to Pakistani immigrant parents and I am being blamed for the violent actions of 1940 hijackers And that's where it all began And I always tell people that was the baptism by fire That was the turning point the fork in the road That was the danger room simulation for the rest of my life and with the rest of my career For my generation You're listening to it's been a minute from NPR I'm Sam Sanders speaking with wajahat Ali We're talking about his new memoir It's called go back to where you came from You know you wrote about how much work you had to take on at Berkeley in the aftermath of 9 11 You and other students and the Muslim student association just took it upon yourself to do a lot of bridge building You hosted Friday prayers for the entire campus You held forums with all different kinds of speakers and groups And you said something that really stuck out to me about that experience and that year after 9 11 you said it was quote training ground an X-Men danger room simulation that would prepare you for the rest of your life Explain Yeah I mean you become overnight the Muslim firemen You become the Muslim walking Wikipedia You become the person if you're thrust in that spotlight where you have to be an expert on the drop of the dime on all things Muslim and Islam McGraw and Sharia are profit Muhammad Hakeem olajuwon Nan Hakeem not Hakeem three Hakeem everything Bollywood hummus Hamas like everything You know here I have this 20 year old undeclared student playing NBA two K next thing you know I'm giving speeches in front of 200 people And as I have the microphone and giving the speech I'm like why am I sitting here giving a speech What's happening And overnight you get thrust like our parents generation You get you know you get thrust into the moment right You have to meet the moment And you have to then play the stupid condemn Nathan game condemning violent accident by violent people you've never met And you've got to be perfect And if you're not perfect not only are you indicted by this nameless judge you're an executioner that 20 years after 9 11 still holds your loyalty aspect simply due to your ethnicity or religion it condemns this whole thing called Muslims and Islam Because after 9 11 the enemy became this thing called Islam It became a civilizational conflict between us and them I'm using the language of our elected leaders at that time The axis of evil And it wasn't just those who were Muslim and I'm glad you mentioned this earlier It was those who looked Muslim Sick Americans Indian Hindus Arab Christians right And so overnight you become an educator you become.

to play the apology game right It's exhausting and it's like humiliating But at the same time the people who did indulge in that you have to realize dude our communities were under fire There was like mass surveillance like NYPD now that we know this right did mass surveillance everywhere insidiously in the moss on the street everywhere Students student groups grocery stores and then their list of looking at traits of radicalization which is hilarious is if a man has a beard if a woman has is wearing a hijab If they eat halal meat that's like you just described like a Brooklyn hipster It's ridiculous Like Jada pinket Smith because of her hair condition That she's wearing a hijab and suppose she goes into meat Congratulations You're gonna now see your SS suspect First they came for the Muslims last had nothing Then they came for Jada And I was like no She got entangled There you go Yeah So you said that your experience after 9 11 and organizing was a training ground But I wonder now 20 years later what did that training not prepare you for That training doesn't prepare you to invest in joy to think about your long-term health and the dreams that sometimes get deferred That training does not prepare you for the crushing realization that sometimes no matter how hard you work like we mentioned before you'll be dealing with the same demons 20 years later You know that the demons will simply evolve and mutate You know white rage never sleeps It'll always fight back The work is ongoing It never stops You can't just rest right And I think for many of us we're like oh if we just put in all this time and effort things will get better And they have in many regards But you always have to keep moving or else you stop you get lazy you get complacent and you die And in some cases literally Well you know what I felt reading about your experience doing all of that activism and organizing to be a good Muslim What you realize and what a lot of activists have said in the last few years is at some point you're tired and you can not do it all and you have to stop and take care of you You know it's like there will always be an issue to organize around There will always be a march to attend There will always be an in some inequity to fight to fix but also maybe you could just take a nap Like that's allowed And I will say you know I have covered activism and activists on and off throughout my time as a journalist This latest crop they believe in self care and I'm like good for you You should Life is long and hard You said and I am investing in that early like I almost died It's in the book And I realize you know oftentimes we measured success our generation Through martyrdom Our success was look how many arrows I took for you Look how I suffer Look how you bleed Look I'm dead And I said I don't want you dead I want you to live long And so what I really invest in in the last few years especially during trumpism every time I'm inviting these spaces I always tell people invest in joy you have to make the intention and almost like exercise you have to put in the discipline You have to say like I deserve to be happy And if I invest in joy and find joy it means that I'm happy my family's happy the.

"Tell our listeners briefly what it's about Go back to where you came from and other helpful recommendations and how to become American Is about loving a country that doesn't always love you back And how the rest of us are both citizens and suspects us and them and how this country can turn on us on a dime But at the same time it's about how we can move forward as a multicultural country And I hope it is done with humor and it ends on earned hope not some hallmark a sugary confection but earned hope and the earned hope is by working through the challenges So that's the book And it's just one perspective my perspective but I tried to use my story as kind of a narrative spine to make a commentary about America and connect the dots for the rest of us The introduction of your book comes in hot You start by sharing some of the most offensive letters you've received from readers and viewers and then you write some snarky responses I'm wondering in real life how often do you respond to often racist hate mail or tweets That's a good question I get those emails every single day When I used to write in the comments section and articles my editors always used to turn off the comments section because they're like you don't want to read this And oftentimes it was benign stuff but it was because of who I am my name my ethnicity and my religion that all of a sudden I became a target And I'm sure you get it also We could sit here and talk about potato chips and somehow someone would make it like a racist That's how it is And you kind of take some dark humor with it And I think it depends on my mood and about once a week I'll respond to a go back to where you come from And if someone like really spends a long three page missive which they have then sometimes I have some fun with it And sometimes I share it with the public Because I feel like oftentimes we're asked to be like daffy duck get angry and upset but sometimes I want to be like Bugs Bunny you know If you really think about it right Bugs Bunny's always chilling They're always after him but he always uses their traps against them and sometimes he dresses up as a girl and kisses them and then sometimes he just walks them but he always gets the last laugh And I want to make sure I get the last laugh in the last word Yeah Bugs Bunny didn't work hard He worked smart There you go He was a smart bunny You know so much of your life changed on 9 11 And a big turning point in the book is that event and what it meant for you going forward I want to go back to that scene because it was very vivid for me as I read it Where were you when you found out about the attack 20 year old UC Berkeley senior undeclared in my pajamas woken up by my roommate in our apartment a mile away from UC Berkeley He knocks on the door and I'm sleeping He's like you gotta get up I'm like come on man It's freaking exhausted I stayed up all night playing NBA two K then ten minutes later I get another knock You really have to get up and see that something's happening So we're both in our pajamas blurry watching the tower on fire Maybe the pilot had a heart attack That's what happened He was trying to land a plane maybe a Laguardia something happened and then you saw the second plane go Once you saw the second plane that's when we realized something this was deliberate And right there and then you kind of do the minority prayer which all minorities know And the minority player goes something like this Please let it be a white guy And if you're white or self identifies white it's not because we want any harm to come to you going full circle with the beginning of this conversation We realize that when it's a white person all of whiteness is not convicted Well the white guy is like this lone wolf who was misunderstood you know Just a dude You know crazy dude did it You want to have white uncles and white aunties in your community having to stand up like Uncle Sam with flags like waving in the air and saying I love America and let me prove my moderation and come to my churches and you won't be investigation and surveillance and hearings right Like you won't be held you won't be interrogated or indicted and have to prove your loyalty or prove your whiteness But for the rest of us we're effed all of us collectively And then when they saw that on the scroll at the bottom you know suspected Osama bin Laden in Muslims that's when I remember I closed my eyes and I just realized things were going to get really bad And I was a member of this Muslim student association I was elected to the board and I joke that had Muslims known that 9 11 would happen these horrible conspiracy theories which we did not know because Muslims also died that day I would have joined the Indian student association and I would have learned how to do punga or whatever you do though Do not join the sick student association because that poor group got screwed First hate crime after 9 11 was a sick man and this shows you how stupid racism is 19 foreign hijackers 15 from Saudi Arabia two from UAE one from Lebanon one from Egypt brought down the two towers killed 3000 people And so the first hate crime after America was in mesa Arizona where a white supremacist blamed a middle aged sick gas station owner balbir Singh for the violent acts of 19 foreign hijackers because he was brown skinned had a beard and a turban and he was sick Bigots aren't nuanced This country lost its damn mine after 9 11 And so here I was a Muslim student association board member and I had Muslim women born and raised in America emailing me Should we go to school Their hate crimes were afraid I had my first hate mail Just think about it I'm in California born and raised in the Bay Area to Pakistani immigrant parents and I am being blamed for the violent actions of 1940 hijackers And that's where it all began And I always tell people that was the baptism by fire That was the turning point the fork in the road That was the danger room simulation for the rest of my life and with the rest of my career For my generation Fear listening to it's been a minute from NPR I'm Sam Sanders speaking with wajahat Ali We're talking about his new memoir It's called go back to where you came from.

"Do the writing. But you know, having insurance doesn't hurt. This is a thing. Everyone is like, oh, my parents did. My parents said, even if they're a little too enthusiastic about what they want for your life, big picture, they are concerned about the right things. There you go. Your security. They're trying the best they can. They're trying to love you the best way they know how. They just, you know, they're overzealous. You know how it is. And you know, another I'm a parent, I'm an older, you see things from their perspective. Parents instinct is protection. That's all it is. And for my parents generation, especially that immigrant generation, you have to realize they left with they came all by themselves. They were young kids, there was no community. They had the funny accent. They weren't seen as average that you had to put their head down, they could only do a few reliable, safe, secure jobs to send money back. And so once they made the Concorde American Dream, they wanted to hand that checklist down to the kids and said we don't want you to suffer how we suffered we learned the hard way, go get a stable degree in a stable job and keep your head down and be safe and marry someone who's ate on the hotness skill and get a Toyota or Honda that immigrant vehicle of choice. And there's a love there in a concern there. And the reason why so many of my parents generation, the kind of mocked or ridiculed or didn't invest in journalism or podcast host or writers is because we saw no models of success. So they're like, you just can't expect me to have faith. My faith has to be rooted in something tangible. Show me success. And then maybe I'll invest in this. And when I was growing up, we didn't have Hasan minhaj and riz Emma then Mindy Kaling. Flash forward to now, look at you on national public radio, talking about your book. I can't imagine an NPR 15 years ago. Letting the two of us get a whole hour. Seriously. I think 15 years ago, let's take it back, like, 2006. This would be wild. This would be wild. You know what would happen? This is what would happen. Like the whitest white NPR host probably would have been sick. And then they would have gone to the next two hosts who would have been in a car crash God forbid and healing. And then there was another white person who's never done a radio show. And they got like a panic attack. And then like, Sam, you got to do it. And then with me, like, 17 guests would have like bailed the last second. And we've heard about this war a lot. He has a book coming out. And then that's how we get an hour. There you go. There you go. Up next, how 9 11 changed was reality. And prepared him for the rest of his life. Stay with us. Been baller worked at a record label, but he thought his boss was giving young artists a raw deal. I was like, yo man, it's not like you can't still get rich and they can still eat. I'm talking everyone eat Wagyu. Oh, his boss was Dr. Dre. And he fired me. I was like, look, I'm gonna pivot and do something. All he did was change the game of high end, custom jewelry. Here how? On the limits from NPR. You know, so much of your life changed on 9 11. And a big turning point in the book is that event and what it meant for you going forward. I want to go back to that scene because it was very vivid for me as I read it. Where were you when you found out about the attack? 20 year old UC Berkeley senior undeclared in my pajamas woken up by my roommate in our apartment a mile away from UC Berkeley. He knocks on the door and I'm sleeping. He's like, you gotta get up. I'm like, come on, man. It's freaking exhausted, I stayed up all night playing NBA two K then ten minutes later I get another knock. You really have to get up and see that something's happening. So we're both in our pajamas, blurry, watching the tower on fire. Maybe the pilot had heart attack. That's what happened. He was trying to land the plane maybe, a Laguardia, something happened, and then you saw the second plane go. Once you saw the second plane, that's when we realized something this was deliberate. And right there and then you kind of do the minority prayer, which all minorities know. And the minority player goes something like this. Please let it be a white guy. And if you're white or self identifies white, it's not because we want any harm to come to you, going full circle with the beginning of this conversation. We realize that when it's a white person, all of whiteness is not convicted. Well, the white guy is like, this lone wolf, who was misunderstood, you know? Just a dude. You know, crazy dude did it. You want to have white uncles and white aunties in your community having to stand up like Uncle Sam with flags like waving in the air and saying, I love America and let me prove my moderation and come to my churches. And you won't be investigation and surveillance and hearings, right? Like you won't be held, you won't be interrogated or indicted and have to prove your loyalty or prove your whiteness. But for the rest of us, we're effed, all of us collectively. And then when they saw that on the scroll at the bottom, suspected Osama bin Laden in Muslims, that's when I remember I closed my eyes and I just realized things were going to get really bad. And I was a member of this Muslim student association. I was elected to the board. And I joke that had Muslims known that 9 11 would happen, these horrible conspiracy theories, which we did not know, because Muslims also died that day. I would have joined the Indian student association. I would have learned how to do punga, whatever you do, though. Do not join the sick student association because that poor group got screwed. First hate crime after 9 11 was a sick man in this shows you how stupid racism is. 19 foreign hijackers 15 from Saudi Arabia to from UAE one from Lebanon, one from Egypt, brought down the two towers, killed 3000 people. And so the first hate crime after America was in messer Arizona where a white supremacist blamed a middle aged sick gas station owner balbir Singh for the violent acts of 19 foreign hijackers because he was brown skinned had a beard and a turban and he was sick. Bigots aren't nuanced. This country lost its damn mine after 9 11. And so here I was a Muslim student association board member and I had Muslim women born and raised in America emailing me. Should we go to school? There are hate crimes. We're afraid. I had my first hate mail. Just think about it. I'm in California, born and raised in the Bay Area to Pakistani immigrant parents, and I am being blamed for the violent actions of 1940 hijackers. And that's where it all began. And I always tell people, that was the baptism by fire. That was the turning point, the fork in the road. That was the danger room simulation for the rest of my life and with the rest of my career. For my generation. Yeah. You know, you wrote about how much work you had to take on at Berkeley in the aftermath of 9 11. You and other students and the Muslim student association just took it upon yourself to do a lot of bridge building. You hosted Friday prayers for the entire campus. You held forums with all different kinds of speakers and groups. And you said something that really stuck out to me about that experience and that year after 9 11. You said it was quote training ground. An X-Men danger room simulation that would prepare you for the rest of your life. Explain. Yeah, I mean, you become overnight the Muslim firemen. You become the Muslim walking Wikipedia. You become the person if you're thrust in that spotlight, where you have to be an expert on the drop of the dime on all things Muslim and Islam and.

"I'll have more to say after I have more than three to 5 hours in it, so. Fair enough, I'm very excited for you to get the platinum trophy. I don't know if you looked at it, but you should, if you do, let me know if anything pops up to you. And it's description. Yeah, I have not actually, I usually look at all the trophies. Okay. Forget those little newts that pop out of the trunk. I jumped so hard at the first one that jumped let me last night. I freaked out. I literally I visually jumped back on my couch. I usually look at the trophies before I started game. So I know if there's like special things. And I forgot to do that with days gone. So I have no idea what the trophies are. I went into it really blind. Fair enough. Well yeah, just I would say go check out the description of the platinum trophy when you can. Okay. Matt, what about you on your end? You're also playing the world ends with you at the moment? Also playing the world ends with you. Really, really bummed that I started. I started that over the holiday break. I was looking for something to play while we were all off. And I'm like, I have this game that I haven't touched, even though I own, so I plugged it in and I am digging it if you and I'm just like really surprised by how just like how well they captured the feeling of the original DS version of it with the new one. The vibe is the same. The gameplay has been modernized, but like the characters are of this. It feels like I'm jumping back into something that I really love. It does. So I'm really excited to keep going with that one. Yeah. I'm bummed to hear it didn't sell as well as Korean as expected, though I always feel like I hear that about scoring X Games. They never sell as well as expected. But yeah, I played it when I first came out for a bit and need to go back to it. But I'm totally with you. It captures the DS game really well and just man, that world and that style in that vibe. It's like it's so great. It's definitely smaller scale, but yeah, it's such a fun game. Yeah. Yeah, it's so much fun. The one thing that does kind of mess with me is the view of the buildings. So you're running down the street and they're like straight and then as you get further away or closer, they curve over you. And it's so just weird, it just messes with me, but I love it. I'm flying through the whole game at level one. Because you can reduce your level. And so every time I level up, I reduce my level back to level one and because it boosts your drop rate. So like when I chain 5 enemies, I have like a three, I think one of my now 175% drop rate for pens. So I'm sitting on day 6 with probably 200 K in money. Oh my God. Because you just get so many pens and you just go and sell all the extras. And my people are always full of food. I have all the clothes purchased. I love you. It's basic. Well, everything everything that's available. I think that's available. I have the incredulity. In Maxwell, I think I mispronounced both times. The reaction to that was I'm on day I'm on day four, 5, I've got like ¥2000 to my name and like a T-shirt to share amongst my three party members. Oh my God. People's fashion sense are a hodgepodge. It would not, they would not work. The difference is dark, right? Like Jada's party is all well fed and well clothed and rich as hell and my party is not close hungry or shivering on the streets of Shibuya. Can you spare a pin center please? Yeah, I really need to get back to the one I really did love what I played of it. I just briefly have been playing. I went back to the frozen wilds because I never finished it. And want to be fully prepared for forbidden west, so I've been playing that for a little bit. Love it, still great horizon stuff. I actually really, really like the characters and the storytelling in this section more than even a lot of the base game stuff. I think it's been really interesting so far. The only funny thing is just going back to horizon after not playing for a year and a half or so in a late game save. Is really hard. It's really hard to get back in at that level. Modern feature that I need in all games is just like a reminder of controllers like controls. Yeah, something that's like, you haven't played in like 6 months. Here's how the controls work and I just need that in every game now. Like I can not just give me every game should have basically a X-Men danger room that you can just hop into at any point to refresh yourself and just that would help so easily. Yeah. And technically could do it with their holograms and stuff. It would be so easy to in canon. It works. But yeah, I've really been loving that. I've been playing through uncharted two as well because my girlfriend hasn't played the series before and I want to catch up for four and lost legacy. So we're playing through two right now. And she will not let me go buy a single treasure. It's wonderful. She's hunting for all of them and I adore it because that's what I do. So we're doing that and then yeah, just continuing my personal play through. But I think that's pretty much it on my end. We're unfortunately short on time and over our time for recording at the moment. So we do have to wrap up there. Jada let's hold on, we're gonna hold on to trophy tip for next week. But if anyone has a trophy tips they want to send in, if there's a particular trophy or proud of and want to tell that story right into beyond it IGN dot com with the subject line trophy tips and we'll try to read some of those on the show. Additionally, if you have any just general gaming stories you want to send in of your PlayStation life, send them in, to be onto idea dot com with.

"Just it's whatever i'm if you own star lord in general but it's it's not my particular relationship for pride no and this is when you see their whole plan for that transmitter. That wolverine gave them as they build this little device which helps them like. Use their power still for a small radius. I think it is yeah. It'll it'll disable those anti mutant collars. They're all married so that they can use the power to go back in time and it news. Cool it when you see magnetometer knows no wheelchair like his davir. Yeah it's it's a really cool because you just see when when he first rolls into the scene all you see is the back of the wheelchair so your your first thing and you don't see the body in it you're just thinking oh baby this is executor. Even though you just saw his gravestone magnates really cool and this is when rachel summers then their whole plan is to send kitty pryde back in time to stop it. Assassination attempt or assassination of xavier. More mctaggart and senator robert kelly with rachel summers power. She's able to send kitty pryde back to herself. Back in one thousand nine hundred and they choose kitty pryde because again. She's at the time that she goes back in time She's brand new so she doesn't have any of the psychic defenses. And that's how she gets back into hurled body because like all the other x men are trained like you're not gonna get wolverine back in his body. You're not gonna be able to get storm or warren worthington but kitties new. She's not really. She's not even had her first. Danger rim test. Which is the next few pages which are so funny so they send kitty pryde back in time. It makes so much sense. I do like those. I do like the dane panels. And i just love scene angel. Even though i like archangel better but he's a character was really grown on me over the years yeah. He's very very awesome. Character arc overtime because angel itself is pretty boring. I would say because only does fly around but ark angel is so fascinating. His stuff with apocalypse is so good. There's so many good stories to be told there. I'm very happy where they took his character. And the whole thing where she says she just screw it up almost getting killed and not prepared for it and then the next couple the next page to two shows when she tried dangerous for herself and she's just passing every test just fine with their ability to face your everything. Yeah so she walks into the danger room and the x men are all fighting these like huge machines in like. It's very dangerous and all these things and everyone's worried about her and then they prep her for her own test because a very classic x men trope at this time. Is you know new x men.

"One just does not let up but it's it is it. Does it in both the party. Banger is an emotional punch. It just keeps fucking punching you. 'cause y'all mike's verse on early. Mike's incredible verse on early when he is talking about what. It's like to be arrested in front of your family is like one of those heart wrenching things. The and the things that his heart is throughout this entire discography but really after the joyous party. Run the jewels one seeing the on. Rt to that was like a breakthrough moment for me to have like the they are capable so much more and also crown. Crown crown is is one of the sons. I've always loved it but like this goes like. Oh wait i think this is like one of my favorite songs at it is because because should be like tell you what it your over i els versus very very good but then and then after after the hook you get that fucking guitar whale in which i'm like i wanna know what fabled phase or who played it because it's so good and then mike's verse on crown. It's just like it it truly. It's it's one of those things. Where like he's telling his personal story but then at with the hook it becomes something that anyone can use unrelated to campaign of crown holding. Was holding you down and just like it truly is one of those zones because i feel like a lot of inspirational songs veer way into cheesy territory and so therefore don't work whereas like this one is truly like i feel the life lived in this song and the lessons learned. Unlike it helped me learn a lesson. And i just think it you can't. You can't overstate how important that is. And again what impact that had on their growing popularity for people to hear this record here all known as much as the hard party bangers that they had the reputation for the new. Also get this whole other side of them. They're very good at hyping than giving a pint also right after love again cash. Also love gay. Sue and i love how often love her. Gangsta boo watts. So cardi and meghan chain muesli. Going out before i come a tree accused of you and i love against his consistently bakshi's cheap. I did walk in the snow. Yeah yeah the book. i'm walking. I lead them all. Focus coke then also close your eyes camp down to fuck jewels. Brennan jewish fat. That was early the on jewel song whereas like okay. I'm in yeah. I was the first song. I was like this going on my playlist. This kgo am listening to this every day like that was. That was what truly an i will say. Dealer roggio was was definitely an acquired taste for me but now he has been acquired. And i think all of all three of these hearings and all three of his appearances are like among the best songs they are. They know how today show mickley early voice also to your those say it. They don't even really have to use them. They just give them the b and he like right some of the best versus he's ever written. What are your favorites on the cell album. Okay so i honestly hollow yes but also the first three songs really. I four sons retirement about gonna auto cranborne. When i heard this album i was already and rt fan from the first one loved them but it wasn't like a screening fucking throwing a bucket epistle. Invest like wow well fuck. Yeah around the jewels until this album came out. And i've viscerally remember when this dropped. And i listened to for the first time and jeopardy was like i'll and my darling don't cry like okay. Run back merthyr. Fail that dick's okay. And then blockbuster borrowing came on. And then 'cause i was like literally screaming in my car like i put it on his driving and i. It felt danger. Ho can music is good. Ed driving my listeners. I lost my mind. Song came on any got like thirty seconds. Forty seconds and i was like a fresh leaving. God fucking damn. Can we talk about all do respect for all i mean they had loved the adventurous features on this one. I love travis. Barker's sue they had they had the song done and ready to go with drum machine and then they will. They got him. I forget the story of how they light linked up but maybe might be something you do. I mean if you see current record releases. He's produced like four big albums in the last year and a half like he is back off. Malarial says he probably yeah. I wouldn't be surprised if you out to them. Yeah but he makes that song what it ended up becoming the so banging banger right. Yeah yeah i mean. Honestly though if we're talking about bangor's there's a little suite at the start of run. The jewels three in which there is talk to me. Followed by legend. Has it followed by. Call ticket tron car which is just like the Almost argue are tj most pop to a degree but in the best possible way. Because at this point once you get around to rg three now that they kind of done more live shows now. They've done it with material j two. They know how to tailor a song for a crowd and that is what they do but not without taking out the heart that has made them what they are and we've covered a couple artists that hit an era in their career where they went like. Oh that hot shit now and they started making stadium museum. That's what i think. Run the jewels. Three is yeah. They made stadium rap. They knew that this shit was going to be screened back at them by the thousands alad get trina mad as big and that yes thing is. This album is so stacked. It's not even fair. All the i also cuts down is the perfect opener. I hope i also i love is both of these two middle albums. They started easy in easy in their life. By the way we're back and then they hit you in the nuts. Yeah but that's i mean truly truly that that even run those first four songs. That's like one of my favorite progressions on an album especially because a couple of them are like continuous mixes. They fade into each. I love legend and it into call tetra. Exactly i will also down into talk to me. talk on. The is my favorite on the jewel. Something i've listened to that more than any more than walking in the snow. It's probably close. Okay top topped is definitely my favorite Wow i just and that's on top of like of course legend has it is right up there with a depending on the day. It's like one of the most popular songs like ferguson. Reason lender has a killer. Yeah and then also. This album has fucking pantalica panther with tra which is one of the hardest hitting and then you get fucking towards the end with thursday in the danger room. You can see me now. That's that's like the spiritual successor to crown for me. Yeah for justice. It's just is good again. Mike's verse this story of like. I know that this was just the situation that we were all put in by society at like the story of forgiveness for this man who killed his friend. It's just like such an incredible piece of work. And then you go right into fucking kill your masters i v like. And that's that's really. I'm almost afraid to say this. I'm on record. I truly think that like run. The jewels played a role in radicalizing. Me in like in like opening my brain jammu like what the possibilities are and also just how far we are in the shit just alpha. How just how fucked are we. We are and just how much fucking seven been hated from us right when it comes to like Your your media your tool education in the united states. How things as white killed when we were growing up and like genuinely there are hip hop purists that pushback sometimes against their quote unquote fo- visionary politics. I don't think it's file right. Nasa people killer mike folk inputs. Not just his money where his mouth is at himes where his mouth is..

"That is out of pocket even than most but yeah so paula. You know she was the thing that made watching this show bearable and then she does something. At the end of the series that is completely unbearable. Some people might argue the most immoral act in the show and people got mad at her and people are still really matter and they're just like as a woman of color like how could you send this like native hawaiian to jail over. The shoe is such a great examination of the differences or the space between what it is that people do and how they act what it is that they think and what they're know records show we all talk one way we all really righteous though we all do some shit that doesn't like at all align with you know the politics that we proclaim to subscribe to a love that because you dow we've talked about this before you know like especially on the internet people love to get into specific like binary of like well take for instance even like the easy way question you know of like Would you call the police. Like a black person is funny in theory right and everyone on the internet is like oh you know like yeah. You can't call black people like doing this etc but it's like okay if a man is breaking in your home with a gun about to kill you or a knife you know like if you're pressed in this situation what are you going to do and i think a lot of people on the internet tried to create like x. Men danger room games for life of what they know that they would do. When you know that if any of the like fake scenarios people come up with on. The internet are not how they're actually going to act in real life. We saw that we cove it the way that people talk about rules and what they should be doing and how other people should be doing. And then you've seen a year like you see a friend of the party like when it's gordon. Tina you're doing this. It's like everyone acts differently when this stuff happens so i think it's very silly to have paula sitting there thinking. Well you know like. I can't get a native islander arrested by getting him involved in a crime you know. She's not sitting there and thinking how people are going to react online or morally to what she's trying to accomplish. I do want to thank both her. And city sweeney though specifically for their facial reactions throughout the entire show. I mean i'm not saying. I'm somebody when i watch. Tv show. i need to see my reactions soundboard exactly or whatever but man just the gift worthiness of looking at connie britton with like an eyelid. Moving the grimace dropping. It's just like really subtle but like harsh acting. That i think are maybe the most fun acting moments in the whole show actually even though people get lots of great character revealing monologues etc. I would agree. And i think i also want to talk about fred. Hatching occurs plays. Quinn and quinn ends up. Being in the finale sort of the symbol. he's like melancholic. Symbol of escape right. I think that the three of them him sydney and brittany are kind of like this incredible triptych of what gen z. Actually is like gossip. Girl is totally didactic. Doesn't have the characters like actually speaking like people and we're not we're not talking about through the almost like a non verbal or like half verbal performances. We just got so much fuller of portrait. This generation especially because they're interacting with people of different generation like connie. How about watching people think is so much fun. And i think that's a key part of this show that is extra compelling is even when it's not you know people clean it doesn't have enough plot or there's not enough going on but honestly it's always giving you something to look at whether it's somebody giving you know a sarcastic response or just thinking for an extra second which is such a pleasure to see an such a clue as we know you love watching white think of as he entire reason you sharp objects of sitting in cars thinking that board asked how the idea of old tears on their face. Not even utah. They've been crying for a while but or cape blanchette. The world's slowest smiler which is my favorite thing about her anyway. But that's i think we specifically got a lot of that and this show which is a great entry and what i will call incompetence vaudeville like veep and succession discuss though as much as we all seem to be fans of the show. Should we discuss some of the criticisms regarding kind of like the paradox of making a show about people who are you know terminally tied to their wealth and setting it on the island of hawaii. Eric there during right when so many native hawaiians had been telling tourists not come because they were like literally bringing infection to their home and there were some like music drops and the show that are outside of crystals amazing creepy eerie score. That felt a little leg playing this like kind of hokey song that everyone associates with hawaii. They they were just a few moments where i was like Mike white's not like completely confident or not completely owning more self indicting himself as a creator and lai chi also is a character that i just thought was done no justice he has no. I don't even mind that he disappears. It's in keeping with the tenor of the story. But his backstory that his family owned the land and the hotel was on. It was just like really try. Really simple and i think that there's a you have to figure out okay. These people can't be at the center of the story right. I just haven't created the show for that to happen. The how can i give them enough depth that even in their smallness they are like equally contending with the largest of someone like tanya or the other characters and. I thought that that wasn't done. I think is sort of goes to sort of just like mike white's telling of the story and just sort of how es cultures have been entrenched in american popular culture. Because like even if he was wanting to like do a good thing here i did agree about the music. It constantly felt like i was watching like hawaii five like the original. You know when there'd be like sunday mysterious happened on the island and you hear this sort of music. Even the theme song is which is a banger. But you know like so much of the music feels like when you're watching like betty davis in the letter and you start hearing oriental music. When like like the asian woman shows up to curse her. It felt very much that and get not even just disappearing the girl disappearing who gave birth in the first episode to and i get that i want to say that i feel that you can't have it both ways if you're mark white like in one way the show doesn't have to be commenting specifically on white people in trying to tear down like this colonialist but then if you also want to say that the point of the story is that these white people are taking over and then so that's why the other characters dropped out then it just work for me and that's when i sort of meant that it felt unfulfilling to me in the end because i know that he likes john. I've talked about this on the show before like he had that two thousand fox show that got canceled. Pasadena with dana delany. That was like a primetime soap. You know like we know that he likes that kind of stuff. And i felt like as a show with like a mystery in the beginning and that was soapy and having characters interact. It's sort of just went to an ending that you sort of expected especially like natasha. Rothwell and jennifer coolidge. I think everybody saw where that's going at the end we saw. She was going to be hurt when she changed her mind about doing the spa. So i was just thinking like why not as a writer even if you're getting us to that conclusion and that's what you want to say. Why not surprise us a bit more in that story. Yeah i will say. I think a lot of the strengths of the show are that what occurs. I don't know that. I always expect it. But in retrospect it feels inevitable feeling. I like period. The movie that comes to mind is you've ever seen two days one night with marian courtyard. She's fighting to save her job and what happens at the end of the movie. I wouldn't have written that way and it feels true to life. And i feel like that is true about a lot of what happens in this. Show that said the lease believable. Part of the show is tash rothwells character. Just signing onto this like hokey person you know who has never once credible just as like a a human being that you would believe anything from you know..

"All right. let's let's flip to some questions here because we have to get going How about we take this. First one from michael garcia will moody be there for the sacramento kings and number nine. He might not. I would say his range is probably seven to twelve thousand thirteen. I think it's thank you does air. I could see orlando taking eight. Maybe just as shooter that would make sense to me if they like. Gopher gamble at five cut a solid shooter at eight. I think that's his range for sure he could be. There could be not. He's more twelve twelve alike. Sixteen range for me. I think that'd be a little bit of a reach for moody. I don't know that like moody's not quite the like rangy flexible athlete. Like he's a pretty solid. Catch you guy to me. He he seems more likely to. He's not going to like blow anybody away with like explosiveness like finished like a wild crazy mikhail bridges type finisher or anything like that. Of course. that's a special player. But i expect him to be more of a like getting the mid range and create his own shot sort of a out more of a physical job creator than like a fast fly round guy for sure his breath letting nick eller who is more likely to be picked seventh giddy folk night or giddy. Getty's oh i would say yeah. Book night is pie. Beat five six or seven giddy as as a wider range. Probably of teams. Who would go. I would think yeah. I was surprised that you guys didn't bring up both night of with the yukon question. Well i mean. I've only seen maybe ten minutes of him enough justin or pretty much. There's a lot of just pass pass pass isolation just running into a crowd of defenders and maybe getting fouled and. I'm just like this guy. i mean. If you're playing group chat bingo at home we've talked about justin's pellets experiences and yukon. Just go ahead and take that free space. You're almost there is. What do you think about dim brown. Do you think the he was the top ten. Pick in this underrated under high of joe. Brown scored like sixty points in a game anyway. Yeah i mean geeze. Downside is the shooting. I mean if the shooting is there it'll unlock a lot for him like he's talented. Big playmaker great feel But the the shoots. He's just got an awkward shot. Whoever takes him but he has. He shows some touch. It's just a big question mark in for a player like him. I think it's tough. Because he's he doesn't really have the types of pluses that you could get away with it So but i mean book night. Yeah book nights kind of one of those guys that we were talking about. Maybe who's over hyped. I don't totally understand it. I mean the shot creation signs are there but he's not really a consistent shooter from three like is he a guy that's going to be like a secondary playmaker type of type of player. I i don't know i. I'm skeptical on book nights. You probably lower than most people honestly high goes back to your motherboard thing. I think back at the beginning of the pod like book nights the guy who can buy score eighteen points anywhere just a very creative score so at a good team. Haven't got the benches really valuable. 'cause was eighteen free points on a bad teams. Having guys jacko bunch of shots in that regard new it's not that valued. Yeah like i. I think there's some other guys psych shock legit shot creators in this. I mean there's an outcome where like i mean. Bones highland is a pretty talented shower. Gator Well i mean cam says the guy brought up the other day. That is a pretty town josh. Christopher is a really if you're going to just talk about gaza. Ding going gonna come in Josh christopher he's the type of guy he thinks he's the best player in the draft. I guarantee you like he's like he's like lani. Walker type like could go crazy and gopher thirty or he could go for two for eighteen. And you know he's he's that type. I would say the difference between book nine. Those guys is book nights and older player. A little more experience and kind of play in a system whereas if you draft josh christopher cam thomas. They're coming in the game and taking shots that's how they play basketball inside with book. Mad at least you can be part of a system whereas those two guys. I mean camp. Thomas i think he had the ncaa record for fewest assists based on field goal attempts like ever. Here's like seventeen shots and one. Assist it preposterous. He's a squirrel. Opens up a window. Talk about the warriors. Here they are one of the more fascinating teams in this draft. Do you guys think just rob just from a big picture team building perspective. It would make more sense for them to take these two picks number seven and fourteen or are you in the camp that they should be trading them as much as possible. Get a veteran in there. And take advantage of the window a steph. It would make most sense the trade them but they're in a similar position to where they were last year. Where if bradley beal isn't available and we're talking about detroit. These picks for basically role players. I don't know that that makes a lotta sense for them either. So they're kind of in awkward middle ground. Where unless things developed with. Bill really quickly. I think they're going to have to make these picks and hope that they choose the right guys and that puts them in a really interesting position in terms of intel. Like do pick the players you want or do you pick the players. You think the wizards might want or do you hope that. There's some overlap between those two things. Yeah i mean it's gonna be a challenge for golden state like they're going to have to if they keep these picks. We're not going to be sure things throughout the develop. These guys get minutes. Get them the right kinds of roles or in their careers and the the obvious conflict. It's like oh. I have my top seven. Pick needs to play this role on the team is like we have steph in clay draymond. There's no time for like roles at the team when you saw with wiseman this year these bench him more and more because it's like we got a win right now. We can't afford a kind of slow you along. So it puts the top position So teams can afford to have like remember like the danger room from x. Men where they had like that that fake simulator thing where you could go in there. Some teams are bad enough where you can like the results matter like the warriors are like no this is like you gotta you gotta be battle ready right now like we can't play we can't develop you. We don't have that kind of time. I was trying to think about like trade partners for them. I mean yeah. Washington kinda makes sense. I was wondering like indiana. Do you think indiana could be a team that would like would they be interested in picking it seven and fourteen and moving off of like a like a brogden like lover like maybe even a jeremy land this with rick carlisle and charge. The answer is not like trying to bring in young players. That was amount of indiana request number thirteen. Let's quote and trade. This sure does learn from draft perspective though because both the warriors and the magic both have to lottery picks and is interesting to see the types of players that people mock them for because almost wonder like if you pick a certain type of player with your i picked. Do you go in the opposite direction with your second so if you pick the safe thing at seven do you gamble a little bit more at fourteen orgy. Covert vice versa. Like if you're the warriors and in urine a particular situation are you distracting. Best player variable. You need the talent. You'll figure out later. I think for golden state then with commingle is going to be one of the most fascinating storylines if they have available seven. Will they pull it sugar in the high upside guy who could maybe develop into a star or go for a safer player and then i mean it's it's fascinating. Think about coming gun..

"danger room" Discussed on Jay and Miles X-Plain the X-Men

"Case they fall in the ocean I see well anyway. Val cooper is calling forage. Because she and the government found out who attacked mystique back at v damn that x. factor was investigating in the x. Men prime one shot right after the age of apocalypse. She's not gonna tell you who it was. But she will tell him not to tell mystique which doesn't work out so well because the forge on this phone call like roughly everyone else in. The mid nineties is actually mistake. So i love this j when we were talking about the backstory earlier in the episode you alluded to mystique having a sort of shock collar thing. I think it might be a microchip. i'm not sure. But the point whenever she tries to shape shift into one of the x men characters from x. men experts or whatever if she tries to stay in that form for more than five seconds she gets zapped. She can't stay that way and that's to prevent her from doing her usual mystique thing and manipulating everybody into doing bad stuff. So it's actually super clever because she's taking valves call in a thunderstorm a lightning storm that valves chopper is in which means the video keeps freezing in and out and so every time the video for its is out she shift back into her mystique form for just a second to reset the five second timer and then back to forged by the time the video comes back which is a great concept and once again makes me really questioned the judgement of the people who designed this thing every control mechanic and every device meant to make a super villain play along with the good guys is bad. There's always some kind of exploitive loophole. And if this were real life that would bother me but this is a comic book and so i think it's great. We don't get to hang out too long. This lightning storm because every issue can be someone's i it is time for a danger room. Cold open well okay. A forest outside the base that x. Factor hangs out in cold open. The point is we have wild child and polaris tussling. We get to know them. They're doing their tracker versus powerhouse. Thing and polaris of course wins. Because she's just horrifyingly powerful in a very experienced superhero. Yeah that's a kind of cruel mismatch that's like we're gonna put this mouse up against the tank. Es it's kinda like i dunno jubilee versus dark phoenix or something i guess jubilee does have lots of untapped potential while child i I don't think he does. Ouch what he does have as this. Polaris is a new costume. That's right just like in our last x caliber episode. We're getting some nineteen ninety-six new outfits for most of the team Let's start with wild child. Let's talk about his outfit. They took away his trenchcoat and gave him an undercuts. Basically that i mean his costume is a little bit different now. Instead of being an orange bodysuit it's an orange and red bodysuit which is also sleeveless and Yeah yeah he got a really unflattering but also really mid-nineties haircut. I will say that jeff matsuda. Now that he's taken over the book does make wild child look more animalistic and for lack of a better word uglier like he looks a little bit less like a quote normal human and given how much the plot of the book has really really played up. What a big deal that is to him. It's nice to see it actually reflected in the art for exchange the absolutely. I like polarises outfit a lot. Not as much as i liked. The outfit is replacing the yellow top with an asymmetrical closure and black pants that she wore for far too briefly. But this one's pretty cool to how would you describe at j. She's such got a blue bodysuit with kind of loose light. Blue top and yellow armored gauntlets in a harness the x. logos on the back of the back of her hands but not quite full gloves. Her hair is is instead of chin. Length bob her hair reminds me a little of how it looked in the gifted. Actually really. it's much longer than the gifted. I guess that's true. Was it your shorter in the first season. Am i totally miss remembering while. Regardless i kind of like the outfit i liked it. It's got a little bit of that armored look to it which is very much mid-nineties thing it's got that structure to it but the fact that the top is a little bit loose and flowing i don't know i think it reflects lorna herself a little better. She's never been a super super controlled character. And maybe giving the design too much credit. But i kinda dig it even if i did the yellow top and black pants better. Chartres is going to get a simplified version of her previous. Look kind of in line with the team. Look spoiler shards coming back. She is val cooper who is also going to pretty much joined the team at this point. She's got this tight blue bodysuit with random yellow accents and asymmetrical straps honestly. It reminds me of nothing more than a less fiddly version of cyclops as nineties. Look yeah except with a perpetual headband. Instead of the visor which is a choice. I gotta say. I don't like action hero. Val i like her so much more. As a bureaucrat. I completely agree at is a weird turn for the character. I understand they had to find a way to get her back onto the book or they chose to find a way to get her back onto the book after x factor told her to fuck off when she kept one too many government secrets from them but the idea of her showing up with giant guns and pouches is a strange one. I mean her showing up with them. Isn't that strange. Her being allowed to stick around with them is there is that forged the actual leader of factor He's got the same outfit but he's got a crew cut now. He cut off his awesome ponytail. Really remember seeing him with the ponytail in this arc. Oh we'll maybe it's like an ultra extreme mullet where he just has the ponytail and the rest is shaved. I'm not really sure. But i liked it better before a crew mullet as it were Crew mullet the worst kind of mullet.
