"Wow. And say like my experience my experience meeting him at that baseball clinic the same positive attitude. but I didn't I didn't make that many. You know like once in a while, they'd be signing a baseball card show, but I didn't have any money for. Two Black to pay twenty dollars for a headshot or something Stan Javier's autograph what are they signed their supplementing baseball cards probably right signing headshots right for walk on roles on like two, two, seven and stuff like that. I don't think baseball players have shot just any memorabilia. So we're you in Oakland, as fan you're in Oakland as fan well, I'm yeah. I mean, my my my father is was an oakland, a.'s Fan, and then I'm from San. Francisco. So I was a giants fan but but in the bay area I, think. I. Mean. There's a certain amount of Oakland A.'s fans who are jealous of the giants because they won three world series but in general there's not a huge amount of acrimony between them. So it's it's okay to. Pick root for one, and then you know generally root for the other as long as they're not playing really. Yeah. For sure it's different from like Chicago where. It's a proxy race war as far as I can tell now. Or Duke and North Carolina where yeah, exactly you know it's it's a it's a it's a it's a friendly a- generally pretty friendly relationship between the giant. So you wanted to nineteen, eighty, nine team because that was the year that they were both. Exactly, yeah you. Just. Remember from Al Michaels. And, the his call earthquake in Indiana Eighty, nine. Yeah I remember my grandmother calling me because she was watching game three of the World Series on television. That was a tough year for me is a little tiny giants fan because. My Dad was an ace fan and as just destroyed the giants giant. My Dad was nice about it but. You know that's how it goes but I mean look nothing wrong with ricky there's nothing wrong with ricky. Henderson. You know what? I mean nothing wrong with Dave Henderson nothing wrong with Carney Lansford. These guys are great.

My mom was a systems analyst at the Student Health Service and so sometimes, the basketball players would come into the student health service. And I think once I was at her work when Chris breast came in. So you're telling US low and this is on Scholarship College basketball player. Yeah Yeah. Haunt I got a picture with James Worthy. My Mom's favorite basketball player. Did you really? Yeah. Yeah. Where are you wearing his famous sport goggles? No He. Wasn't. He was it was actually it was in university mall in front of Roses David. Wow wait what's his and he was playing for the was this like eighty-one. Or? For. No He's playing for UNC at the time. I was thinking about this tonight because the Lakers one tonight and James Worthy tweeting about it. James Worthy is my mom's all time favorite basketball player and Mike Watt's all time favorite basketball player and I was thinking I wonder if James Worthy is is the only shared favorite of my mom and legendary Punk bassist Mike Watt. That's the one overlapping the ven. Diagram they probably both love Poro. But. It's their favorite detective. I mean, probably right what other did. What is your mom loves spenser for hire? No I read those my mom had a lot of the rabbi books on what like on Friday the rabbi slept in on. Saturday. The rabbi. was late those books that was series of books she had when I was a kid and I was fascinated by them because they seemed so. Mysterious and adult, but I don't remember Poirot books but I'm sure she had her Agatha Christie books. I get to meet a paleontologist once as a kid really. Yeah. That was I was a dinosaur kid. So like my mom took me to something where you can meet a paleontologist and I think I asked them what the newest dinosaur they found was, and then I ate a waffle shaped like a dinosaur whoa. Yeah there was this I don't know you don't know where you grew up with this apparently in. Working. At a waffle house. It's Orange County? Orange. County California he's like well, there's only so many jobs digging dinosaur bones CPI I don't know what building we were in where I met a paleontologist and I mean it could have been These could have been two separate stops and I've conflated them in my mind but into your dinosaur memory, your mega memory of all things dinosaurs, and maybe the it was just a normal waffle. But my memory of this is meeting the paleontologist asking him what the newest dinosaur excuse me asking her what the newest dinosaur she had found was and then eating dinosaur shaped waffle speaking of mega memory when I was a teen I'm at Kevin. Trudeau? Off. Memory I. Sure that was good. That was good Jesse. I'm going to be more supportive about your Kevin. Trudeau thing than everybody else was about my prince of tiny thing. I'm taking the High Road here. Are we still friends John Did you ever meet Dean Smith I never met Dean Smith, but I I I almost ran over Teen Smith. One. Nine. With car legendary UNC. Basketball. Yeah. Dr Ing through the Oaks which is the neighborhood where the chapel? Hill. country. Club is all of a sudden Dean Smith walked out right in front of me in he was golfing. I think probably crosswalk so I probably. Would have been at fault. Were you in your escort the Ford Escort. Nineteen eighty-two Lime Green Ford escort. Great Year for the escort should have seen that coming Agean if you hit Dean Smith you would have had to go into FBI would've sausage my life would be. Who That's scary to think about yeah, it is. Guys. We have one more call. Let's take a listen to it. Hello, this is Sean in Canada I'm calling with a momentous occasion sort of a follow up to call you this week about Jose can Saco playing poker US, pithiest possible. I was also playing poker in Las Vegas I was in a poker tournament at spouse during a bathroom break I, went to use bathroom and I ended up at the urinal next to Jose Canseco notice as he walked out that she did not wash his hands I go back to poker tournament and then realize that Jose is also in the. Focus chairman, he was one of the other tables. So fast forward awhile and Jose and I ended up at the same table and swear to God I ended up knocking Jose Canseco out of the coca tournament. Now, the customary first thing you do as soon as you someone poker tournament is you shake their hands. So shook their hands and as I was grasping 'cause. Very muscular hand I realized he didn't want to stand in the washroom I guess I've just secondhand. Say Penis. So there you go. That's my Jose can take story about good God. There's gotta be somebody who listens to our show firsthand. Touched it right. Yes have you fucked could SACO. We want to hear from you even if you haven't fucking psycho if you've fucked. Whatever? Mike Ago. Felix Jose. You know what I mean like if if you've given a quick hand job to Terry Steinbach, give us a called on.

The head coach I think I met him. Once I have to go back and listen to our podcast episodes from nineteen. Because I'm sure I'm sure we would lead.

"By the way my name is Scott Aquaman I'm the host of Comedy Bang. Bang and we have very exciting show. Come a little later. We have an edge retainer. Wow, okay! Well I like education I love entertainment, and hopefully that is a Portmanteau, non clumsy of both of those two words. We also have a podcast guest. All right that's interesting. I guess all of our guests could qualify as being podcast guests, but that's the only information I have in front of me currently to describe this person. And coming up first on the show, it is my pleasure to have to I. Don't know how to describe them other than humorists. Is that safe to say guys? It's okay it'll do in a pinch. K. So. The Empire has ruled that safe. Definitely, no risk involved there sure. Where do you think the risk would be? Would it be calling you comedians or Start getting letters pretty quick. Okay, yeah, we don't want those qualify. Put your pens away. Listeners because these who are humorist you know them as wonderful authors and raconteurs and entertainers, mostly humorous, humorous short. Yeah, you know them as separate humorous, but together they abandoned forces in order to produce a television show which comes out this Thursday on Fx. In the cake programming block entitled Dick Town and we're going to be talking to them about this. Please welcome to the show John Hodgman David Reese. Hello, guys! Hi! Thanks for having US high. It is entirely my pleasure so wonderful to have yes of course Jon. You didn't say thanks for having us. Which is you know? I'm wondering if YOU'RE GONNA? Thank me at any point. I'm I'm thinking it over just writing a witty humorous riposte to the intro what I wanted to say was Scott. Let me be the first to say. Thank you for having US I. Don't think that you were the first to say that, but okay. Thank you John for being at least last to say it certainly. Now guys, you have television show, which is a thing that quite honestly. Back the day. A lot of people did not have now. It seems like more and more people have them, and that's fear has extended to both of you were the last ones. You're the last people to ever have a television show and it's produced in. GonNa come out, and it may be the final television show in the history of humankind. What do you think about that? The death rattle of the entire medium of television assumes human form. That's the tagline for our show humorist John Hodgman. HODGMAN DAVID REESE WE'RE GONNA PUT TV out of its misery, and isn't it ironic that you've made a television show at a time? When most people are inside their houses, watching television? That's and they're just activated by what's on that that rectangular box that is of course if they have a modern television. If the of a square box, they certainly have an out of date television, but but isn't it wonderful to have something traveling through the airwaves in through cables that shows up on people's little. Little tiny screens in their houses. Isn't that wonderful? Everyone was so busy watching. They forgot they could make one, so he took advantage of this this moment of distraction, and did it actually made the SH. The show is an animated short form animated show and you know animation takes all the time in the world, so actually made it about two two years ago. Did you guys animated yourself or or did you hire people to do this? No, we worked with Floyd County in Atlanta the. The Archer the archer team. Also, this is like in Archer verse away to the overs. What am I I? Don't think I. Don't think it's in the archer verse, nor is it in the in the Arab neighbors? What is the Arrow verse bear overs? You have of course Super Bowl and bat woman. It's not a vendors. David Reese isn't there. A guy in the avengers shoots arrows. Sure there's Hawkeye right. Okay, but that's not the Arrow. Verse is the Arrow Verse Arrow Comics there. Comics publisher. Tomic's tainted the fifties or something that we haven. I'm I'm furious. Right stop! Sorry! Stop postulating about the air over. Something is clearly have no idea about I'm literally never heard of it until just now is this David? Do you mind if I offer sincere explanation of what's we're talking about? Yeah, yeah, please John. Because someone has to. There's a TV show based. On a DC. Comics character called Green Arrow, but the show is called. Arrow and they introduced a bunch of other DC comics. Superhero TV shows that all shales spin off of each other like the Marvel universe. Stop bring up the Marvel Yoke God. You're just fingernails on a chalk. Yeah, ours are so as part of the universe Arrow comments first Aero David. Say you say darrow universe. Two extra. Sam is killing me Arrow, verse. It's a part of the Arrow verse. It is wonderful. This is my imitation of David Rees. The Arab neighbors is that a universe set in the world of men's shirts. Oh. Yeah, the JC Penney. All of those characters Arrow Shirt magazine ads. All your favorites JC Penney. Verse was the Arrow. Shirt man the won two patch. No, did you MISPRONOUNCE IPAD by saying? I patch cake boss would. I think I just heard of the. Never mind, it must have been an apparition. Guys. Can we stop digging around here and get down to brass tacks? Is that right now? Let's stop digging around and start Dad's right correct. We need to sell some eyeballs on this television show. Tell me about what what this is. Dick town I hear the the named Dick Town. And I think that. I don't know I knowing nothing about the show. I feel like it must be set in some sort of town. Called Richard, town or something in another state. Hey, yeah, and that's just me off the top of my head. Not knowing anything about this show. That was amazing. I'll explain I'll explain it to you and your listeners, the way I explained it. To everyone at my parents retirement community dining hall when they asked me what I was working on. so dick down. The name has a double meaning. The first as you've guessed correctly is that the show is set in the fictional town of Richard's Ville North Carolina. Loosely based on my hometown of Chapel Hill North Carolina where I grew up and sure enough. The locals Short Richards Ville two Dick Town. But! There's another meaning as well. which is that in this TV show? John Hodgman plays a sort of private investigator a private. Oh, that's it now. That is a term that people used to use for a private investigator. Before Dick became synonymous with a penis, so John plays a middle aged private investigator who is a former child prodigy investigator and now has grown into. Late Middle Age but is still solving mysteries for young people late Middle Age. That is I. Guess early Middle Aged. I should say right. Age agents just a number Scott. Did you ever read Encyclopedia Brown when you were taught? You had me. Did you ever read the Encyclopedia? Of course I have now. What did you say after that Brown? Did you ever read Encyclopedia Brown? Oh Children's literature, of course not. Did you read Hardy Boys. Hardy Boys No I. Don't believe I Nancy drew. Have you ever heard of Nancy drew books for children, are they? Not I Sherlock Holmes. Yes, Sir Arthur CONAN doyle. Okay, grownup time, okay. Okay so did you ever see the movie? Young Sherlock Holmes of course I did our show is kind of like Sherlock Holmes so okay? Character Jon Huntsman was as a child in in Richards. Ville Aka Dick Town I was a famous local boy detective, and so I solved crimes for my little mysteries for my little friends..

Get married open bar bust. Can I ask you a quick question about De? Escalating bar fights. Because I. 'cause I have been in. Before I left. Before I used to live in the Hudson. Valley and I broke tried to break up a couple of bar fights. And then I try, and then I got involved in a melee in Manhattan wants the try to pull somebody up. What's the key? I mean if there are already going at it, isn't it too late for Verbal de Escalation? You just kind of have to physically get in there. Yeah I mean. If. They're already going at. You really can't do anything about it for the vast majority of de Escalation. You get you get your phone out, and you start yelling Worldstar Worldstar right yeah. Yeah. Usually if if it's an actual problem person at the bar. usually turned to my wife, who is much better at doing this and she'll do things like turn off the music and turn all the lights up and say she's not going to serve anybody until this asshole league. That sort of thing. Because she's a professional. Just not just handsome drifter like me. Fumbles through. Friends Asleep and sleeps on a mattress on his clothes. Well, you gotta keep them things crisp. The? Your wife is like have an eye charts like we have an iron you don't do. You have a home now. I'm here. I'm your wife. Like you have a dresser, you don't have to keep throwing your clothes in the garbage than walking to the hardware store with shoe. Glenn? Align stores where you're like relent, you're you're both relentlessly indulgent and subtly like you're doing. On the person where you're like. Shutting it down, I'm not really sure. Yeah what's happening directing the energy? Yeah, yeah I. Mean that's that's all part of it I. Mean it's it's similar to like any kind of a bar conversation because he can't like you. Don't WanNA. Get stuck there forever. Like just because some guy really wants to explain why. He shouldn't feel bad for loving revenge of the nerds like Hey, man I got a job to do. How can I not have this heart to heart with this sad guy I thought I thought we were having a really good conversations. Realize that you felt that way about. I've never. Yeah, but you weren't a fan of it Dan. Because he thought the jocks were right to beat up the NERDS, it wasn't. It was. Take. Turns out those nurse with the villains. Yeah Yeah for me. It was always that I was mad. They cheated in all the Games. Like. Clearly, the rules say that you can't. If you're after drink a beer and then ride a little tricycle. You can't take a pill that prevents you from getting trunk. That's not fair. Let's check rule book. There isn't one. Run. Look says this is dumb. Stop It. Guys look that wasn't a great note to end on, but on the other hand well, let's let's not end on it Dan okay. I set up a set up a thing tease. Who is the greatest Turco Pommereau in film I'll Shin I do WanNa know that who is the greatest archille Oprah in your in your opinion Mr Hodgman speaking of tall. Doors. Kenneth Brannagh. Greatest aren't. I Shall I shall not fuck off while my show. On. For years I have had such respect for you to the degree. That like you've intimidated me I team is. Full and now I find that the emperor has no clothes Kenneth Branagh. Come on, I don't I? Don't have any clothes because I'm lying down on a mattress. My underwear. I. I'm not going to sit here in front of you damn. Dilettante Trust Fund classes opened. My Life, but okay, sure well for the for the purposes of this by gas. Let's pretend that's no I know. That's I know that's not. I'm not going to sit here and tell you that the twenty seventeen. Murder on the Orient Express directed by and starring Kenneth. Branagh as Ergo Poirot is a great film. But I will say. I did not expect to enjoy it as much as I did. I was. Utterly flabbergasted. When I saw that guy's mustache. Wow! Looking Kurt Russell character much more than Urculo. You'll Perot as I was saying that. Yeah well first of all Urculo Paul Ro as we know from Peter, Ustinov. And David Suchet and even Albert Finney is supposed to be a a short Stout Gore Monde. Vein. Shithead that everyone hates. And instead we got the trailer for murder on the Orient Express. which is a tall? Skinny. Honestly slender men type row. With a moustache that was growing into his ears walking on top of the train. To the tune of believer by imagine dragons, and like Oh, this is not my daddy circle Borroni more. And as dumb as that seemed to me, I watched it and. There was one moment that. Utterly redeemed the movie for me. which is that as as many Urkel Perot books and movies as I've watched. I never unders. I never understood him as a human being. Until. Kenneth Branagh stepped in Shit in the movie. Yeah. Human Shit. No Animal Shit. Humans animals. Interesting an interesting twist if he gets on the train steps into human shit and they're like other by the way the toilets are all backed up. The system is not working. We would really appreciate you solving the mystery and so I. Just have to deal with all movie. and. Ran Interpretation, Ezekiel Perot is a corporate face. Some eats shit for pleasure. Right was really interesting to me. Does for pleasure, and not for sustenance because I. Don't think there's a lot nutritional value. Another human centipede! You're wrong. Time the greatest film of all time human centipede. But. In in in murder on the orange express two thousand, seventeen as official title is. Kenneth Branagh. Pro is walking to the scene of a crime early in the film. Not Related to the train. And on drain crime, he steps and Shit. He sees. Steps back. And then steps and shit again with his other foot. and. He says it's a an paraphrasing. It's not. The humiliation. It's the imbalance that bothers me. And suddenly I understood their co Paul Ro. is, someone who is able to. Sense everything around him such it's an invasion to his personality, and all these trying to do is to make rational a world that is irrational. And it's it's basically. He's he's got no CD, problem, and suddenly. I understood prone away that I didn't ever understand power before like he can't help it. He doesn't want to be this way. He doesn't. WanNa be this shitty vein moustachioed asshole. He has to be this way because that's the only way they can deal with his anxieties and I loved it. I mean I cannot entirely go with you, but I. do think that all right. Now Goodbye. I will say the brand. A performance as are. Probably the best thing in that. I did enjoy the there is one no wait a minute. What about Michelle? pfeiffer is great in it. I, mean Michelle. pfeiffer is great. Everything is yes. But but but Dan you and I. We can make peace over this. Brennan Pro Perot's interesting to watch. Michelle pfeiffer is wonderful. And everyone else is is not good. Yes agreed. Except for Dame Judi dench. She's of a virtual shaking hands. Now I haven't seen. The movie does Dame Judi. dench appear as a cat and sing a song explaining to the viewer that one cat SAR. Yes? She appears as a cabin. She goes my name is Miss Marple I'll see you in the next movie. Great casting that would be. So, wait what's what's the ones your show Airbus? The details on that thing, the lie ninth. On cake. On fx and then the next day on Hulu. Because FX has a deal with Hulu and the show is called Dick, town It has. Profanity in it. It's but it's. It's like an it's not. There's dirty language and stuff, but I don't think of it as a cynic, hard boiled. It's more like a cozy. It's cozy grimy mysteries. We have our new genre of Grimy Coz Catch on fire and then get put out by baby urinating on. Them doesn't quite get that nut, so does that happen in murder on the Orient Express the new one off. The train, what if they call it that? Kenneth Branagh. Train and Train Train and. We've also incredible friends who were guest voices on the show including our friend Jean Grey Zach Elephant Acas Jon. Glaser Jon. Benjamin, Kristen Schaal..

"There's all the staff the house staff. and the mystery kind of turns on on these. Unspoken relationships between those two populations. It really kind of hits that sweet spot. Of Cozy mystery and then gritty kind of realistic. Very not cynical, but very frank about the clap, the class distinctions. that. Maybe it's the subtext of something grittier like Colombo or something right? it's just it's. It's so good I'm sure I'm sure your listeners love movies and they've already seen it, but it's interesting to think about in the context of types of mysteries and types of detective. Who Done it's? What's weird about the flop house podcast is that most of their listeners hate movies have never watched one. Of. The hosts. Last movie you guys saw what's the last movie? You've fell a saw in a movie theater before Corona Virus? Oh good question. Her boy, cat, tell you exactly, but I have no birds of Prey Oh wait now I saw cats a second time. Yeah, yeah! I saw I saw cats, so I could do it for the flop house because I. Don't get to the theater that off. Cats were actually catch was the movie I saw, but the last movie I saw not for the flop. Has the theater was once time in Hollywood? God when they remotely set manually, cats was my last movie theater, too. I. Should feel bad. That was the last movie I saw in theater, but it was exactly the right movie for me to see in the theater lasts because it was such a such a positive experience. I think I think we and all of cultural agree that cats is the last movie. Nah. No need to make anymore yeah. Stu Wellington's up. Yeah, what's up? Do you have a favorite detective. Or mystery movie, or you know or book or anything? Like my mom, my mom was always a big. Mystery Fan. I know you didn't ask me about my mom US A. But like my mom, which is what is it? midsomer murders all the time. The show that has zillion episodes. But now you know I I don't. I was more of like I was always more like a war adventure fiction guy. Cornwell type guy. I'm a real tough guy. So that was more my. vibe. Really. Agressive in nightclubs. Exclusively When you take me out of the nightclub I'm a lamb, but you put me back in their ally. Is Acting aggressively? Roar I. I have to say about Stewart be I. Mean I don't know whether it's just because he's a bartender is a skill is learned, or whether it's just who he is as a person. I've never seen someone so skillful at de escalating. Direction as Stewart. It's weird when I first started bartending, I came straight from. Running Hobby stores where I dealt mainly with teenage boys, who who who were not particularly good at dealing with social situations, so when I first started talking to drunk guys I treated them like they were nerdy teenage going yeah, that that did not go well. I'm GONNA fuck with. These is a little bit right, not a good idea because see the problem is when you're. You know a big tall, handsome guy who always sounds sarcastic. That's the absolute first person. A drunk person wants to punch. Yeah. Yeah I think I think David Rees. You've met your match Stuart Wellington Doll. Handsome guy always censor casting the two of you like movable object meets. Aman stop getting forty bench bench. What's what's a lot, but not so much acid? Expert? How fast can you do? Wings Day New York Times Cross. See, that's the thing. You know I suffer for being you know Tolan handsome, but at least I'm also very stupid. Love about Stewart is he's unabashed at calling I will say I think I wanNA start writing I want to start writing series. Of Detective Novels Starring Stu Wellington. First of all Washington's a great detective named Yeah. It's pretty sick name. It's pretty good. Yeah, say we're sites all. Like tall, tall and handsome but stupid. But the escalator by at heart. and He. On a ignore the bartender part. He is working at a hobby store. And so on and solving crimes out of the hobby store. That's a cozy mystery for me Oh. The Hobby store thing not great you can have. Yeah like models, and there could be a model of a house or something, and that that ties into the solution of the mystery or controlled car that you have to write us or glue. You know you know about all these. Resins, and stuff. Little tiny Bush. They used to pay their DNA whole Mr Figurines now. One of them went missing or something. You know what I mean like. Gary Guy Acts like like Gary Guy the monster manual. that. Students mistaken you wrote a monograph on the nineteen different kinds of pewter ORCs. I. Did yeah I did I. Don't like to bring it up on the PODCASTS. You're like Sherlock Holmes written a monograph for everything that comes up. Homicides or whatever the Yeah. The the every episode of Hobby Store Homicides was. Confession, a confession that I managed to get without any attempt to act without knowing there was a mystery. Canceled, the best thing is that your catchphrases is something like solving crimes isn't my job. It's just a hobby. Running the hobby store is my job. Play in that space between avocation and.

"Hello and welcome to useful idiots. I'm Katie Helper. I'm excited I guess to be reconnecting with a little bit. Are you getting used to being in quarantine started to hit now? How weird it is and I kind of feel like. It's strange that more people aren't freaking out because it feels like that movie the purge a little bit one of them. I'm not sure which ones or which one. But yeah it's weird and it feels much more dystopia than anything else I've ever experienced does have a dystopia feel. I do think there's going to be a lot. Lots of folks who are inching closer to that tristate killing spree. That's in all of us. Yeah or most of us. Yeah Mine's actually Quadra State quattro state. Yeah I'm a bit more of a kind of a high achiever in a larger sense. Look you know. I'm settling into the routine of You know locking myself in house in just single-mindedly thinking about the the biggest news story in the world which is the felt trapped obviously coming next week. Yes income having Process that so I'm not going to quiz. You drafted this week. Because next week is the big ones so A lot of stuff going on with the CRONULLA areas with politics in we got a really interesting gets an old friend of mine who's Comedian cartoonist depan castor. A Pencil sharpener. Yes and you might notice. I actually have a pencil David Rees Pencil on my wall here loud a certificate of sharpening. Wow that's really cool. Yeah so David Reese is one of the few people. He is one of the most talented people I know. Very Funny Guy in a Lotta realms and he's got a podcast. It's very apropos to what we talk about in the show. It's a it's an election gambling site Collection profit makers. We're going to talk to him about the raise in his thoughts on that and he has an interesting. Take that I actually share that. We're we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA get into so but let's start with the news for food. Groups Republicans Suck Democrat. Doug is not weird. Isn't that horrible for main categories of news and we're starting Democrats suck which is me this week. That is correct. Lot of a lot of stuff always with Democrats suck. But I'M GONNA I'M GONNA pick one a little close to home and I'm going to start with a little a little shot at at our own a rolling stone for its Andrew. Cuomo cover Dan. Do we have that graphic an Italian minstrel on like seriously. We really have to do this rolling stone. I mean what's next? You know Lloyd blankfein doing God's work our that. Look what would that look like it would be? I think he'd have Lloyd Lloyd. Little backlit looking down at the world or something exactly or or or or what the Atlas Alley. Ira Lloyd as Atlas would be gone. I mean come on. Andrew Cuomo is just one of the biggest Douche wads and politics a complete jackass and we got to put him on the cover. I'm sorry could vary. Dramatically quit no. I don't think it's necessary but can you get him to come on the show. Now can you be like hi. Just doing the follow up to that photo. Shoot we did with you. I'd be afraid to ask that fucking crazy family and in fact this is a good segue into the next part of my Democrats suck portion. I mean who knows what you might ask politely. Would you like to come on the PODCASTS and You know end up being choked to death or something like that As we now know because Chris Cuomo got in yet another incident the other brother who faded out yet who raided out and I think we can we can inject here post factum the Freida video just a piece of People don't remember what happened there but Chris Cuomo the lesser brother the bag who's on CNN. He got an another incident where a sixty five year old a longtime resident of Southampton was riding by the property. Where Chris Cuomo apparently lives any saw cuomo congregating with his wife and three children or three people. I mean he wasn't exactly sure who it was and the guy asked you know. Cuomo what he was doing since he's supposed to be quarantining. Khurana positive corona positive and the quote from the story in The New York Post. According to this fellow calls himself David he said who the hell are you? I can do what I want. In the in the quote was he ranted screaming. I'll find out who you are and the guy said. Your brother is the corona virus czar. You're not even following his his rules and he just began to boil. Maury said this is not the end of this. You'll deal with this later. we will meet again if that's not a threat. I don't know what it is. That's the that's the report in The New York Post and I wouldn't necessarily give credence to the story except Cuomo Kinda Kinda sort confirmed it in an interview. That he gave about were among other things he he sort of complained about about the difficulties of the life. You leads in the spiritual emptiness of it and he spoke about this incident.

They are going to be classical movie stars. You know they're going to be box office. Draws in like prestige films work and it just like visit is like a a poof poof. It's a total four open to six million dollars. That's huge disaster a huge disaster yeah yeah colossal all disaster. You've got one hour photo got signs Swim Fan. Remember that one that sounds from online stocker yeah its dangers of the the Internet all right you have trapped where Kevin Bacon trump's Charlie's Aaron. Is that going to be not directed by someone weird. I don't know I I feel like it gets crazy. Big Fat Greek wedding almost pulled off the thing which has a child who tracked the box office with my father was the most most exciting thing I've ever seen. Oh boy here we go what because this was happening the same summer as the Sammy Sosa Mark mcgwire homerun thing okay. We're every day day. My Dad and my brother was not.

They're both they're coming coming up on the record and then we've flipped to the back page and my dad our go look at this thing that's happening. which was something about? Mary opened the number six at the box office Ryan. Every week went up one position and it was perfect. It went like surprise. We didn't open better right and then like the word of mouth was good.

No it was four and talking all this stuff about how you had such an associated can kind of fun childhood. There were parts all right. There were in Box Office receipts with your dad everyday.

"Parents have a cocktail party and you're supposed to be in bed yeah then you come out and listen at the door right and you and you listen what adults are really like right right and you're like I now understand it and I'm going to. I'm an adult. I'm GONNA continue being a child right right and I think she comes out of the kid right right. I certainly see the value in being a kid right like I'm in no rush to get there but at least I understand it now and it scares me right less Hukou she's like. Will I ever see you again. He's like definitely right and you're like. I don't know what that means or how that means but sure okay you you had these. Does she keep her memories like is gone is sort of part of her but she can't remember automatic. You know they don't explain that and they don't explain a passage of time and I love their parents. Were like what what is this some kind of prank. The kids put Eve's leaves and dirt and dust on your car. We're going to go. We're going to leave that guy's call yeah and then they just drive away like the movies over with all these questions of like. How long were they in there and then there's one of those great songs like. Ooh I love. I love that it doesn't answer this but I also I love thinking about like. Do they arrive at their home and it's like you know the movers are like we've been trying you every day for the past two weeks. We reported you dead right. You didn't show up the eight months ago right this bill condemned but honestly even within the even within the chronology of life at the Bath House. It couldn't have been more than a few days was it no. I think it's been months. Oh I think you're right. I think you're okay okay all right. We're not seeing everything like you know like. She's been working there for Yeah Yeah Yeah. I think he's been working nine to five so David. What's what what is it about this movie solve it. I no I don't I mean we've been doing our but for you. I mean for you. This is one of your favorite movies right. It is isn't it touchdown yeah one hundred percent. There's just no question yeah so what is it well. I mean we were talking about little spaces right numbers right in each world all right so maybe it's a party sort of evokes that for me like that sensation of being a child that's insane of growing up of like things being unknown and discovering during the unknown. I don't know I don't know put me on the spot as we've just been talking to hours about what I know but now I really want to like get real like what is it i. I don't know there's I don't know I don't. I don't mean to like miss.. Make this movie like a mystical artifact like but it does feel like it's one of those news just like lightning lightning in a boss and I love all the I basically love any movie he's ever made right but this is like I've seen a lot of them and a lot of them are great but it's like like this is like on a different level their power retained in this movie and unlike the other movies that I think I have seen that have that sort of like a magic lightning in a bottle quality. those movies are less allusive in their meaning. You know right like films you watch like like the original wizard of Oz. You're like something just works here. There's something they bottled how much you've heard about. How disastrous production was you know. It works better than any other adaptation. There's some quality that movie has that the books don't have not to say it's better or worse but there's some power there but that as a similar type of story is a far more literal version of fantastical movie and so yeah artists lightning in a bottle thing which is then intensified by the fact that it's animated so that there are no mistakes. Nothing is by chance chance is happened on camera. You know this didn't work. Everything is the conscious decision making process of people's hands and their brains in their thoughts and feelings and all of that and then you add onto that that he that lightning in a bottle is happening on a movie that is by its very design kind kind of obtuse right it is up to and dealing on boarding unconscious level infinitely rewarding but also when I feel it I have a very profound emotional emotional reaction to it and one that I can't explain that one. That feels like it's coming from the bottom of me. That's what I mean like. That's my little choking. When I say like I literally was like hacking sobs like a switch had been again last night. Watch again. I watched it wasn't last night. It was like a couple of days ago and I just like had any time I put this on. I feel incredibly happy and serene and like involved and then like I'm like Oh and this is the moment where I cry right. Yeah I mean like I'd probably GonNa cry this time almost like the movie is existing like like an as Amar video like it's triggering some this you're saying the brainwaves somehow is like found on some biometric frequency for you that you didn't like you know like you know what I mean right. It's permeated your consciousness. There's something about the commodore with the story and the images is in the sounds and the music and all of that that just like hits you in some weird place in your spine. I guess I guess my question is because it does feel so extraordinary and just so different from all of his other movies I. I wonder if Miyazaki himself was kind of surprised is like Whoa like this. This is incredible nail this. No you know what I mean like where even even the Creator would be because you know if you create something. Sometimes you can be like. I don't know where that came from a hot streak you know or or get wonder if it's the soot but the thing about this movie is animation takes so much planning right so mid. Everything has to be accounted for like just like there's no mistakes because you're not shooting film. There's also no mistakes right. Don't happen in writing kind. Yeah exactly accidents don't happen. This appeared in this production was so like over budget totally panicking changing everything at the last is minute like the whole story that production is really wild and the fact that it wasn't like post Princess Bond Okay. He's like cool. I have my blank check. Now can do whatever I want no time for me to make my master knew he was the higher yeah after we're running okay was like well. I think that's the best I can do is he's mic drop over and when he came back to you is like shop the book. I'm interested in Bath House doors. What about these girls vacation with like he was like pulling from right. It's not like this has been inside me to come spirits K. It was kind of that on this for twenty five years. I've never been able to tell this mythic story and and like our relationship is the the combination of all of his made an epic my longest moving my most sensational move you know and then spirited away right him being but what's behind both house right the thing you're talking with a mustache arms the thing you're talking about where sometimes people are like. I have no idea where that song came from. Whom I it was like skydiving existing as you are and I'm the person who wrote and performed at Yeah Yeah I remember the process of doing it. I don't know why it came to me. I don't know how it came out in the way it did but I'm kind of it's just sort of as I said this sort of undeniable object yeah now. Let's talk about the money it made eight. Oh sure I mean we're going to have a real box. I was game because it did come in America but in Japan obviously it was as we've talked about in a previous episode. Whichever one we did the like top movies ever yeah you know it was an indestructible force? May Two hundred twenty nine million dollars. ooh translates to fifty billion yen. I think yeah a number that sounds insane so obviously made most of its money overseas also highly successful one China where it only came out this year it had been made two hundred million dollars before it was released in the US or China rights rights which was like unheard of it was a kind of the first movie to be so huge internationally that it was one of the top grossing films of its year having not been released in the United States it also did really well places like Korea and Hong Kong. It did really woman Francis. It did really well in well ever made about ten million dollars in America which was was significant. Yes it was significant because he monon okay had really not he'd been treated like this sort of like art house film by Max This was distributed by Disney and it did make some money had a DVD releasing of you know there was like pretty well done the dove I close Oscars that was huge the the dubs solid. It's not my favorite. I don't think debate is particularly good to hero she's. I don't think I've ever watched it. Everyone else's okay exemplify kind of rural. Lucia plays great. Some of them are good. You know chasing Marsden who plays a WHO is like one of those on everything. I remember finding it very distracting right as you're watching cartoons right. He's like very recognizable yeah so there's that I'm trying to think it's an okay I saw the first time I saw it was actually in Javanese with subtitles in the cinema good for the Camden Town Nordion radium but I've seen the dubs because it was on tv all the time anyway. Here's a not that surprising Stat obviously the only not obviously but unsurprisingly the only foreign language film to win the Best Film Oscar also now to date the only hand-drawn film to Win Really Yeah True Yeah. Oh it's depressing because while I was in grammar at one that was stop motion. Everything else has been. CGI RENGO was Kinda like Mo copy g right into the spider verse kind of has elements of I mean the most generous thing you could say about is a CG film which they like did hand drawn to the enemy on top of the CJ right and then the this movie wins centimeter feature it was up against movies that represents sort of all sorts of moments in yeah animation seve treasure planet which is like the dying of the Disney tradition mushroom Duran yeah yeah it's like a Sifi treasure island we and our treasure planet of some amazing Yeah Spirit stallion of the CIMARRON which is very painter. Lee Pretty Horse movies visit five nominees often. It's only three nominees invest and now it's always been in the past. It had been usually three in the past. There was some sort of there had to be enough animated. A feature released in a year now. It's this was the first five year right and only five year until two thousand nine. Oh crazy okay so you had ice age which is like the early dreamworks kind of like. I don't know it was not trademarks. It was bucer. It's a totally actional pleasant movie time. Remember feeling afraid it was going to win because it was a massive hit a huge and this was a non pixar year so it was like there isn't an obvious thing to down. There was Leland stitch which is a lovely Disney movie. One of the Better Disney the movie no that movie is the closest Disney has ever come to me is it's a pretty cute. Movie is Pretty Great. Yeah a little Hawaiian girl meets an alien. They have a but it is a film about childhood. Loneliness child being raised by her older sister after their parents die but I remember it was the first award of the Night Cameron India's presented it as the sort of standing in for Shrek. I think I think she has presented best animated film three times she and Shrek she is princess. Aw I rescued from the tower likely due in Disney smell my folks but I remember I was and I was like and spirited away. One was sort of claps music. He obviously was not there and it's like okay and yourself like something significant just happened and it's just sort of like we're just going to move on right yeah. Especially especially after Shrek wins the first rights we've honored like the teutonic figure of animation which is great film stats that people always throw out like well you know hitchcock doc never won an Oscar one Oscar you know so like all the great legends of cinema shows you how meaningless this award is and then you look at best animated film and they kind of have given it some rain all right even debating you know the most important alive canonical feature for animators have all sorts of won the Oscar now and then.

Yeah you know Lou yeah and commodities. Go take the train go season EBA. Go figure it out. This is a moment in the movie. This is one of heroes great initiatives were. It's her idea like I'm GonNa make this right. I'M GONNA apologize on behalf of Hukou. He didn't know what he was doing. I'm going to go make this right right right. it is she hero accepting responsibility disabilities yeah yeah right right well accepting responsibility but not accepting responsibility almost doubly so because he's actually doing being the ultimate responsible thing which is accepting responsibility on behalf of someone who's not in conditioned to accept responsibility. Do you know what I mean. Yeah feels a little even more interesting being and loving yeah right. I think that's why it's an EBA so moved by right one thing your love broke the curse but this as yes like she's so so amused to hear that wasn't me Betsy Buffet right you. Bob Is the one with the contracts and the curse is and the I own your life forever you know but it it is so Miyazaki as well. That's what you're going to exit urban environment. You're going to go to the countryside where things are lived simply and you make what you use right. You know like you find your own new sense of security. I mean obviously we talked about the train. Ride on whatever you want to say about the train. We talked about it. I mean what I mean. It's just psychotic. It's just one of those things that just feels like name more icon a trainer at area yeah yeah. I don't know there's just something and but again. It's like you can't help but wonder like why. Is this doing this to my mind. Like what is this right right. It's sons. I guess it's dusk. Yes so it's I mean again. We don't we keep talking about shot of her walking on the water talking yeah talking about limited spaces and now we have even even more piled up because now we're in space. We're in twilight right isn't that the lighting violation is set in and get turns tonight right. You're on the you're. You're on a train track. That's in shallow shallow water also just kind of weird and we've been seeing the train the whole movie across Yeah Yeah. It's an old train shed at that moment also kind of takes little bathtub yeah to the station and then she's like watching her ago and you see her realize like this is a good person that I know yeah and she's like. I'm sorry I called you. Clods clot yeah but that's Kinda gets me a IT gives us idea this movie being kind of undeniable unless you have like deliberately constructed a wall between you and like I did a thirteen year old is that it's almost like this movie has like identified certain tones that like Vocab- a physiological response from humans you know look. It's a cracked into something. You can't fucking understand. Why all these story elements the single images these pop points are like right. He's like tech right yeah because you never feel it. Never feels cloying or no. Wait ever manipulative the way that type of move can feel and so on explained to where you're like. I can't even make sense of what's going on. Screen let alone why it's it's affecting me. I I was trying to see like writings. He did about the film to see what he thinks the movies about or how he talks about it or and obviously so you know. I think he likes to be a little bit elusive and not over explain stuck and also that it shifts sometimes but there was this thing of like some of the wikipedia page every Summer Higher Miyazaki spent his vacation a mountain cabin with his family and five girls who were friends of the family it different spirit away came about when he wants to make a film for these friends Miyazaki Doc ID previously directed films for small children teenagers such as my neighbour Totoro Kiki's delivery service but he had created a film for ten year old girls which is such a weird but right at that moment of adolescence but also the great thing about that story is he kinda thought these girls were idiots. They really need to learn about scrubbing grubbing right. They said for inspiration he read Soja Manga magazines like nine. Akashi rebounded girls lifted the cabin but felt that they only offered subjects on crushes and romance when looking at his young friends Miyazaki felt this was not what they quote. Hell deer in their hearts and side approves the phone better girl heroine could look to instead and then like the movie then generates out of the fact like he want foam for new two years he had to previous proposals. One of them was based on a book it a third proposal that was about a bath house he was interested in the bath house because he was always curious about what happened behind the door you that was making the Bath House Ron and then this crazy line here and sometimes I wonder when they like attributes to me as ocoee if they're like simplifying what he said because they made it sound like he's a man who only ever says like the frightening thing doing right. Miyazaki did not want to make the hero quote a pretty girl at the beginning. He was frustrated how she looked quote dull and thought quote she. She isn't cute. Isn't there something we can do. As the film neared the however he was relieved to feel quote. She will be a charming woman squad goals. What a weird thing to say sure yes. I am relieved. She will be a charming woman but then he is. I mean when you watch the documentaries about him. It is sort of him staring at an image and being like no. I'm not like life is not being of Oak Right. It's just not it needs to move differently. There's something wrong. The is need to be right like that's his obsessive like kind of Blink Cecchi right but that he was sort of like I need to figure out how to make achim movie about the inner lives of these girls and these magazines can explain it to me and these girls can't explain to me right. It can't be about having crushes and right right right right right yeah. I don't know right but then also like his insistence on like she can't be like too adorable right you know but I also don't want her to be unappealing that he's like going for this like weird sort of dog whistle tone in the middle but I've she's pretty adorable alright. She's she's really especially as I said like just the train that it's like. You're seeing her quiet quiet sitting her thoughts. These things teenagers do really younger not contemplate the world around her but also just sort of be be quiet. It's just weird to see a bleak here and also she's comfortable in space right. She's literally surrounded down incredible care and he's like okay. I'll sit down build out like and then the to the Malsin the bird they get to the train station. Almost everyone's John There's the lantern with the foot right but then like when they get his Anita's. She's like please. Can you change the back and she's like they can change back whenever they want that. Curses says over right and it's like right. There are sitting in it too. They're like yeah. I don't think I'm ready to be a baby yet. You know I need to run a little spinning over a while and make a magical cool hair tie to strengthen the bonds between right. That's what she gets from Zeba. Why isn't Neva also living in a western style you kind of fairy tale cottage bobbins and Ebay both kind of westernized right British or European yeah. That's a good point. Thank you bye-bye she has. Let's see I don't know. She is stylistically different from everything else. All Right which I guess is maybe just I love her. Phone is a skull as well forgot about that. We got to grips a skull right. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. That's pretty great yeah. It's one of those things that's pretty great. Yeah you remember that there's just a shot spirit away of like seven giant chicks you know in a bath. It's just a shot for like one second year. You just see the big chicks. Oh yeah like taking a bath no lights. There's a movie where there's right. Yeah I just like I like. I mean whatever I love this movie. You know I liked it. It just comes down yeah and then and then Hukou is there to fly her home home that is an of him like all Japanese ladies ragging glorying outside the the cabin to real blow blow up yeah and she remembers she is they're flying. She's like right. You're he was the PUCK Catherine and the skills off. We already talked about right and it's so emotionally. It feels like she's indestructible. That's why like the climax is that's. The climax like the peak thing is like just a little CODA like you know you already know like there is no problem she'll she has. She's fully confident. You Baba's sort of whole intimidation thing is kind of over right. well. I think part of that is because in that moment she's in remembering something about herself. She's answering question about herself. She's one step closer to understanding who she she is. She's yeah. She is firmly feet like one in each world right right. He has they kind of that sort of her magic. Yeah she's like US writer. She's the only one I can walk right right yeah. She's blade. She's a day Walker Yeah Yeah. It's great yeah. She realizes entire tested bullshits. She rejects your premise knows her name's takaiser right so here's my question then she walks away and everyone cheers but here's my question the very end the end of the movie. I wanted. I wanted to get to this too. I know exactly what you're gonNA. Say You know what I'm about the the moment and the tunnel. She's while they're walking back out. You can't look behind you sort of orpheus. Nia style right right. Scott salvaged her parents because suddenly shares are back in the right and the time has pat. It's not like one of those childish fantasies. It's like a thing I want lickety-split. No I don't WanNa talk about that. I WanNa talk about love at the car is like overgrown. It's been a minute. Go go from saying like I wonder if the movers like beat the movers so them being like wait. What is the vegetation doing around our car okay but here's my thing think they're walking back out through the tunnel and we see the exact same we we see the exact same moment they had when they entered the tunnel which is to hero grabbing onto her mom and her mom saying stop squeezing me so hard. Armenta trip something like that now in most movies where a child well has crossed through a tunnel and gained understanding and confidence and identity by working in a bath house for spirits as saved her parents and in his walking back out through the same aim tunnel to begin her new life her behavior. Shan't she would not still be holding onto her mom yeah for dear life. She would be walking independently comfortable yeah loving her parents but but feeling safe and secure without having the whole way. I interpret this is that it's an her relationship with their parents. She's glad to have them back right like that. She's like like game right like that's why she's grabbing on. It's not out of fear. It's out of like you're here right there real. I think there's another thing too. which is that her journey has given her an understanding of the adult world? It has not fundamentally changed how she is going to behave it is just for for understanding of what is inevitable what she will become this movie. Her experience in the Bath House is like your experience when your.

If you're a kid you know what's coming. Your body is going to rate go through changes but this movie's got a ton of that. Most of these characters have at least one transformation. We'll this space between childhood and adulthood like so she's GonNa have some crazy changes coming on. I think that's the thing I mean once again speaking just as a someone who is incredibly terrified child. I think it was just like this is already so overwhelming. I don't want anything to change right. I just I just got a footing on this. I'M GONNA lose my voice right now. I'm GonNa have to shave like what the fuck out every which way all of that get it out of here it is yeah. Let me just stay here. Yeah and also the adult world is mean and yeah hard to figure out and you're gonna like just be Straw draw tired. I've told this story. I'm sure before on the podcast it's a thing that probably like kind of broke doc me as a human being in many ways you could look to my current lifestyle and extrapolate how this affected me when my mom was pregnant with my sister sister so I was eat going on nine and my brother and I had shared a room and now we were. GonNa get separate bedrooms for the first time because we had a third kid to get a bigger space so my mom asked me what color I want my walls to be and I said I wanted the cloud wallpaper from toy story and my mom said she would not let me do that because I wouldn't like toy story for much longer. WHOA that is is crazy that she said that you're right now to stop investment like how much was probably a lot of money to buy that welfare but she she did break. Get Down in those terms I said what do you mean. She went look. I know you love toy story now but you're eight and soon you're going to be nine and made you feel like when you're ten or eleven but when you're thirteen you're not gonNA WANNA live. If you're GONNA be embarrassed. She's worried that you're going to be embarrassed. As an aside with your mom on I'd broke down crying and I live in an apartment.

What I'm talking about the entertainment weekly thing like God Toy Story. He's just such a set is such a satisfying in state of the art of storytelling. This is a flawless machine delivering emotions. Here's my whole taken not gonna get into this because he he's left me episode right now but that the toy story movies are about existential meaningless they sometimes are. I think the choice is a pretty good. I think they all right. Characters haven't arrested in fact that they have no reason to be a lot of stuff to talk about what to Australian ligament at him all right but the point is in some ways. I think my mother saying that to me probably probably caused me to out of defiant. I see what you're never locked story right and I can empirically like as an adult rationalize why still value them uh-huh movies and all of this but I also think that concept terrified me so much her telling me fundamentally. There are things that mean the most to you in the world right now they you will not only you won't like them. We'll be embarrassed by the ever heavy lesson it freaked the fuck out of being oh yeah and that kind of thing of you will change the things you care about will change. Your name will change.

"There's like a sort of an emotional time it kind of comes to a head on a train and I was like love trains right this sounds great and then I watched the movie and I'm like she just sort of sits there and like life Kinda rolls by Uh Huh underwhelming or is it the most whelming I know why is heavy. Why is that scene so fucking in quiet. It's just the movie is being quiet. Movies aren't quiet movies just like sit down man. Everyone's gotTa life that they're living. You know but it's it's something about the train going over the shallow water. Yeah is also very dreamlike and he'd like neon on signs are going by and you see cities in the distance and commuter art shout shadow commuters and the Little Girl Shadow on the platform and she's made her peace with no face and I don't yeah all right so we're back to the best thing yeah. I mean that's in like a movie yeah. Yeah I such an existential moment at encapsulated. It's amazing and again you're watching a girl progress emotionally and learn things about herself but not there's not moments where she says that right and so he or she's learning like sort of like. I mean she gets a little vomit dumpling from the river spirit right pretty cool kid. You'd expect you to get like a sword or something. He gives her involvement dumpling putting it is useful prize but so she's learning the value of teamwork and like collect spirit all right right sort of like like there's this thing where they're like. They're going to bed afterwards. Thank God that was a day. That's also a great seeing it's a great scene with she's landed like they're eating because they got extra rounds or whatever and more soccer right and like they're sitting on their little poor or in their aprons and they're like what a day and I like. I mean it's it's incredible and that's when no face-to-face no face shows up in the middle of this she lets her in by him and by mistake because he seems nice also just like us just like how was I supposed to know. He was a spirit weird. He's just freaky as everyone else. Why should I let him in. It's not like it should be like little with an x like this guy. Money's no good no one's giving give me a visual glossary like I'm riffing here. Yeah Count Ashi faceless is his name I'm trying to figure out if what he's based on you know what I mean chair right thought this was he doesn't exist in Japanese thought this was just a Miyazaki right like like thing he came up with his face design is taken from a Silkworm Yep but he is just just sort of black cloak with a mask right. I guess he's Spooky. He is most iconic imagery as OCU- character other than totara. I would say I would say absolutely and what again this is like. We're I don't know if the analysis is cultural psychological or something thing deeper but like why is this character so fucking iconic and intriguing well what what is quiet thing. Obviously he's going to turn into monster EP old. That's pretty bad but I mean when he's just and this is. Why is he so transfer fixing for most of the here's the shape of your water bottle sitting here for most of the film he does not have any limbs. He is just sort of like a big mound yeah yeah if he walks like a little foot might appear to step right right very slender surprisingly slender limbs a will say yeah he's. Somewhat Feminine Yeah and He's I don't know. What does he represent like loneliness? That's the thing so I think if you're thinking about all this as a huge economic he is this thing that doesn't make sense within the cogs of Angel Investor. He's just someone who can just make money appear out. It's all bullshit and he's also he's just modeling other modeling that behavior of anyone. He ingests anyone as around right. Go ahead go. Let's say like is no face. He has no identity right he he eats the frog and he becomes greedy because the frog is greedy right and so you know and like starts talking like the frog kind of associate path in a way that is scary cannot figure out why someone is operating the way they're operating which like like that's what happens when you remove someone's face and you can't read their emotions shirt nervous about by the time we meet no face. We've met a lot of unusual characters yeah but they all fell asleep but they all have recognizably more or less human personalities mhm you. Baba is just contancts grumpy. Yes Taran ICAL yeah we we know we've all fairchild and what's his name boiler room man budgie right yeah Cross Ratchet Nice Guy but harder gold land land bossy elder sister to mean boy that maybe you like. What is this feeling right yeah but I like Mr Kohl won? It is interesting interesting. Question is like doesn't he seems hard to startle. You know what I mean. I think very very relaxed right right yeah but no face is the most obviously Indyk Matic yeah and I think you're right. What's what's a little disturbing about about him. Is You know there's no real sense of motivation. I guess other than just fathomless loneliness and emptiness. I think thing that is terrifying childlike. That's right your greatest. Fear is to end up highway and everyone in the bath house. It exists in this sort of system like this kind of greedy system uh-huh you. WanNa hoard what you can get. There's all the tags. There's the better tags on the worst. you know all that stuff so when he shows up he's like. I'll pay whatever for whatever you provide provide. They are all they're like. This is a bonanza right but sin is still a child does not have thoughts of like monetary gain. That's just that's not kind of in her character yet so that's why she can take totally defeat no face limitless gold and she's like what am. I doing that right. She's he's kind of uncorruptible. I mean she's like I'm here to rescue my parents and probably learned some valuable life lessons like you know about the spirit of work in the collective and all that but if this is Miyazaki's story about contemporary Japanese culture and the emptiness of of post industrial capitalism totalism which it probably is and that's and so we see everyone at their worst when no face shows up with free unlimited money because they're all debasing themselves in front of no fees the right yeah and and but do you think in Miyazaki's mind no face represents an actual economic condition in Japan or personality. I just know I don't know I can't remember what's interesting using about no faces. No face isn't really greedy right. No face just want love right okay one hundred percent. I just can't imagine somebody who would throw around a lot of money. In Service of seeking validation from others not makes zero sense and how far could that person possibly go right and the idea of that kind of person who is so hollow in vacant whose motivations you can never figure out because there's nothing really going on there that that people would just fall over themselves giving him anything he wanted right. You know that they were totally debase themselves. They would surrender all their values so I'm saying this movie is hard to me at the fear of him devouring them so here's something he said it's more about the pigs but you know it's to hear his parents during into symbolizes how humans have become greedy at the very moment she hero says there's something about the town. Her parents turned picks. There are people that turned into pigs during your trapans bubble economy me in the nineteen eighties and these people hadn't realized they'd become picks once someone becomes a pig they don't return to being human. They just gradually start to have the body and soul role of pick. These people are the one saying we're in a recession and we don't have enough to eat. This doesn't apply to a fantasy world. This isn't just perhaps it. Isn't it a coincidence that the food is an actually actually a trap to catch lost humans so like I think he probably talking about. I mean what happened to his country. That metaphor is a little easier to read the no face. There's no I know but I'm just saying like you know. Do you know what I find very unnerving about the Paren- pig thing in particular. The transformation doesn't happen on screen right. They don't give us a CA- Pinocchio Yeah but when you see them hunched over they are sort of like reading but it's this fact that they cannot stop eating right here their daughter just the thing that like some switch goes off where they're like. This food is good. Then it becomes so thoroughly consumed by the food that they cannot not hear her right and they cannot stop moving things into their mouth that it's just like like that. They're gone hundred percent spirited away pigs no face oh right so the dumpling the vomit dumpling right half of it is used to cure no face right and she puts it inside him. He just like he just emits. Voids right right like just goo comes out of him basically right now. It's really satisfying moment of expulsion and liquor vomiting. Oh Yeah Jimbo popping move no totally movies simultaneously extremely spiritual Esoteric Serene area grounded with body horror and like real fundamental lake substances being secreted from orifices. Hungry sightings are disgusting. We call full spectrum dominance and then you know with Hukou Hukou is the other half. I'm like there's that moment where like he's he's shaking and the blood center yes. Yes yes APPs against the wall yeah. has there ever been an American children's film with this much body stuff fucking. What's it called Dan by me as famous vomiting yeah yeah. I mean you know it's interesting. Animated Pixar ever made a movie where people grow up and go to the bathroom so far away from its monsters. INC has bathroom ship really really has scenes in a bathroom our bathroom sense yeah bathroom and throw no it's more. There's antics in about those that you know they they hide. The little girl in the bathroom doesn't count. I'm talking about right but there's no actual sort of bathroom. Talk right like no people who would pee you know Anderson Right right like I throw up. Spit 'cause the thing I remember most monsters INC which is burned into my brain. Forever is Steve Shemi whatever he's called yeah where he reynolds every time bang knocks open a bathroom right bank. Does it again like that's the image using the toilet though I mean this is not their job trying to think I mean I feel like when I would watch animated movies as a child that would give me the same sort of discomfort unlike body horror films that were intentionally trying to trap in to something they'd be movies that were bad and Bentley were setting like there. Are Things like the the Weird Felix the cat animated movie sure or like a weird like raggedy Ann and Andy Musical. I don't know the these are like bad and animated films that were like failures were disliked by children that I would watch a lot because my mother was over protective if they were the things playing on the few channels that she let me you watch and those movies I remember having physical things that made me uncomfortable Japanese Little Nemo in slumber land movie but what those movies are often not dealing with very biological thing like Brennan stimpy and Rocco's modern life those TV shows but those come come to my pus and really it was more sort of fetishistic like. Can you believe how like amazingly drawn this booger is. You know what I mean like right. You know like we needed shots. Were there zooming in on a no poor. Guess what what's interesting about spirited away as of those moments of like. It's pretty gruesome yeah but it's not done obviously as for humor shock it steamatic. This scene is when everything has calmed down and everyone needs to chill out right like it's very it's very violent violent and sort of everything's been oxy turvy and after he blow barf everywhere he knew they need to they need to take it easy like the movie has to be very calm now right I mean I guess there's what's the point with the baby the point with the baby. When is she with the baby. That's before she goes on the train. Yes right like this is all happening like it's like after this. She gets summit to you. Baba's office you. Bob Is yelling at her. There's the pilot gold turns into Mush right right like there's the thing where to heroes with the baby and the baby's padded room right and scares the baby with with her hand her dirty hand. Oh I forgot about that. The baby lives in this like totally as a bit of a Germaphobe right well. The mother has commenced the baby. That'd be outside right yeah right because the whole like like I'm right. This Hukou is being attacked by the fucking paper creatures that rules you see in the distance and and it's like right on you and it's really visceral and horrible yeah but Wednesday Anita arrives and she transforms everyone right well. You should explain that Zeba has transferred herself via Hologram into being one of these projected as as attached herself to the back of hero unbeknownst to her so that she can get gain access to you. Baba's person it in and look around amount where she suddenly creates mayhem. She turns the heads into the baby the baby into a mouse right she turns the harbory shirts a little fly but like a total cartoon her tune. I mean again. This is when this is another moment. It's like I don't I've given up trying to understand what mythological whirlwind but it's also like. What kind of cartooning are we doing? Holy looks like a Disney not even Disney. This just looks like a Saturday morning cartoon tune belittle mouse especially syndrome but but it's so crushing when you Baba sees the mouse and it's like get Thatta here with the rice resting and she hears like you don't recognize that and then just tails off in Mousa- so sad then they just leave you know what when asking like are there other animated films that deal with that sort of body horror. I think the thing that I I feel like would affect me as a child. I can't think of other things that are that visceral this role in biological mess sense but it was always the went went people's bodies change so anything where somebody gets stuck doc inside another person's body but also anything were like their body gets morphed in any sort of way..

"The idea that like every other country is starting to get really into this guy's movies there should be a breakthrough moment where he connects with American audiences as well and when the movie came out and it got sort of half hearted release. Disney's defense was well. We didn't get merchandising rights. We're really limited in what we could do with the film like their whole thing was that they could only make money off of releasing the movie in theaters and the fact that they didn't retain the intellectual property of the film gave them so little incentive to do anything thing with it. Oh I see because they couldn't make like no face dolls or something right because he had those rights right. It could work at all right. It's all right and there's this Disney thing with how vertically really integrated Disney is especially now that they buy more and more brands and just go like we can work everything into every ten of our company where they were like so. What's what's the deal here. We put didn't theaters and we just make money from people buying tickets. You mean that much successful business model that's existed for a hundred years on Broadway ice skating show the the spirited away Broadway show the musical kills everyone who attends and they entered the spirit world monsters. I coming closer culver. You lose right so I just I just like. I feel like honestly a reason why he had to put he had to go to Disney to get money to make the film is how incredibly hard it would be to create a character like you Bob Dylan. How many characters now they're like multiple that are just like absurdly Louis Detailed Bob Estes sister though Jesus. What does she looks like you say there was one pretty cool cost saving measure which his you Baba and shows up to you baba yet I think we I don't know what I you know another thing right yeah? I've never seen any thing look like this wouldn't incredible looking creature this. He's living in a European aesthetic. One hundred percent right yes yes very gothic very cheap crenelated look folks in rugs and right. She looks like a political cartoon like you're like. This is a caricature of a government official that I don't know it's sure I get I totally get that but it's also like how when you're a K- kind of afraid of old people totally because they I just don't look right. They look different. That's regular human her head yeah right with these things you focus on fixated on your great aunts mole. She's she's kind of like your grandma afraid. Yeah and she's get out of here. How'd you get up here. She's like I need a job. Get outta here. I need a job. I you know yeah and then the baby shows up which is just like I mean I don't know how many for me that's my boiler room where it's like. I guess we're doing the baby's door down right see really shifts from being scared grandma to being like oh come down baby. It's okay you you know but also such an interesting choice to like set up. This character is extensively sort of if not the villain the conflict and within two minutes like like. She's like a really really doting parent. She's she's you know her flaw is. Maybe a little too hard on the workers a little too easy on the kid again I mean you could find some balance in both but there's that thing that even as a fourteen year old or sixteen where she writes she heroes name name on the contract that so lifts one remaining in different sounding name yeah and I think I looked up. The meaning of these words here means fuck. I have to look it up again because I want to send means a thousand right right. and to hero means something like a thousand. Something's funded she hero Aquino so she changed her name to a number essentially right yeah exactly a thousand fathoms what she hero house pretty cool yeah and everyone's like hero. That's a good anytime. They hear the name her real name. They're like Oh yeah but just that concept that like she has your name now so you cannot it's gone. It's not even like she changed her name legally. It's like that belongs to her right. There's nothing you can do with right yeah and she'll start to and she starts to forget it which is another really unsettling right which is not long after. We're like okay great. You got a job right. Eat this human food right and you'll remember your your name and not disappear does happen after the summer. They go back to her parents and she sees the pigs. Yes I who takes her to the brags. I think it's because then there's the scene where she's eating meaning the Bun and tears start pouring down her face latins tears. Yes eating the rice balls Saket Chew. It gets me a lot. It also just that feeling of like food food nourishing you right now. She has now she listed a basic desires that you would forget about grabbing his face ripping his skin off his skull. That is a good moment. It's great but that thing that's Nice Aku like we've seen meanwhile shows up with you. Bob And he's like final taker. Whatever book thank you that thing they set up. You need to be able to identify which ones were. Your parents and you need to remember this. Is Your parents don't forget. I feel like as a kid. I I so many fears around forgetting things. We're not being able to understand things anymore. You know especially like I feel like when your child and you're being very emotionally affected by something and someone around. You doesn't understand yeah you know. Why are you scared. Why are you sad. Why are you angry. Versus like the comfort you get in your parents being like I understand this that thing. You're afraid of bats or whatever when someone's like what's the deal some sort of indifferent adult. I feel like I always always had this fear of like I don't. I don't WanNA become like that. where. I can't pick up on what other people are going through. You know where I'm not attuned to things anymore. I don't remember what things feels feel like when I was very afraid of my voice changing because I knew that was a passage into adulthood. Your voice gets deeper. What about my current voice voice. That can't be lost time goes very afraid to your home videos and stuff like I was like okay. There's like a record of my old voice now. I don't think about these things but when I was ten years old polar express thing of like there are things you fundamentally will not be able to connect with anymore once you're grown where I think like between like the name and like the remember. Her parents like all that stuff in the movie is just like there's a point where she can far fall too deep into this where there's no going back. Were childhood is fully overture. She never goes back to that place of security with her boring parents. You know it's just done she will completely lose any sense of who she used to be and any ability to return to that life. Yeah that's true but it was terrifying. One nothing is interesting is that we haven't seen her. Her human childhood has not been idealized. No it's not obvious to us why she should other than the fact that like she's he's just a kid who has parents and it's good to have your parents. It's not obvious to us why she would be so concerned about saving her parents and leaving leaving the bath house. I mean she kind of rough job but she's making friends. D- There's an fulfilling right. I like the middle of a lot yeah. It's not but I know you're saying I mean he's going to get sucked into adulthood. Like pets really saddened scared child who was not greatly enjoying my childhood. I was also more than anything terrified of becoming an adult. I get really scared me so much that I get that. I remember I would do that thing where I would go like okay. Wait so like right now. I'm MM six next ruby seven Europe. They'll be eight I would count up until and then I'm going to be twenty and it's over and that would terrify me and run to my mom and I'd be like I'm only thirteen years away from not being kidney more right. I'm only like six years until I become a teenager. Whatever you know what were you afraid of. I think I was afraid afraid of losing the status quo even if the status quo wasn't always comfortable for me it was I knew yes. It wasn't anything inherent to your being child. It was just that's what you happen to be. You don't like change. There is that but there also was like certain concepts of being a child or like you. You have to make money like you have to read on your own to do all these things and I was like I like that. I don't have to do any any of this. I don't worry about any of this right but I feel like the appeal of what's happening to her and spirited away is that even though she has been drafted into service part of a community now there's here's you Baba who so frightening in that first scene in the scene where they're scrubbing the TUB. which is the sort of next big thing when the you know the stink spirit arrives like you? Baba is not really very mean in that. She's kind of like there's the part where she like produces the fans and starts like it's amazing. No that's one of the best scenes in the movie your it's one of the right and yet they're all in this together and you. Baba's annoyed like a fucking stinks yeah but she's also good at her job. She's like I know stink spirits. I got knows right. You know I knows knows and this isn't a regular Lego. There's something's up with this. This is like I mean like the first major set piece in the movie. which is how do you give Monster Bash? I love this guy. Yeah I love the stink spirit so there's a lot to relate to that and then I also love when he turns out to be a river yeah right and is floating skeleton head attached to like a water serpent again. It's an it's another uncanny moment. Coming of computer animation feels that just a little bit off a off in a way that's very effective but that feeling of just you're so dirty and tired hired and traveling. It's almost like getting to the hotel finally edge showering right but an all metal garbage orbits like bicycles and things out of credible yeah pretty good movie and hard it is like getting the thing to drop down like everything is hard and also she is she is waiting through so getting back to Shrek. She's waiting through with little could be fecal matter like tub of diarrhea. I don't think it is diarrhea. Great let you're getting. You're getting into some pretty primal stuff with anal expulsion and let you know what. I mean like very well might be treks shit right. It's very possible we'll know Shrek Shits. It's there in the beginning of the film rights the outhouse yeah but they weren't brave enough to show where they weren't there counties over dreamworks amend the remarks apparently apparently bid very competitively for the movie that makes us a weird thing to think about if Katzenberg had this Amtrak right that makes sense because it was this titanic slayer. It was this sort. It's like this has got to be a phenomenon. That's how dreamworks is trying to feed. Disney was going like what if we have a deal with artem on like all the rival animating are you're talking about Wallison. Grandma Yeah Yeah Yeah. forgot about those guys. They're still around really. I think so it didn't he do a relatively recent wallace also wallace talk show the voice of Wallace keep that he was very old because he was old when he started voicing like he was a TV guy from Britain one hundred and two day out they did. They did some TV shorts. I think like five years ago is less than they did. In the last proper short was like twenty eleven. Maybe yeah. That sounds right. Yeah I mean they were still doing stuff right up until he died pretty much yeah yeah. Do you think this stinks. Spirit is the best hard to the movies set-piece. It's not just the train count yeah because to me. The train is like cinema right looks like nitrogen is Nigel Andrews this when he says like you just WanNa pull the Johnson just die. Yeah I mean that's the train and the one thing I knew going into this movie people..

"It's bespoke post themed boxes for guys that give a damn. I like what's in this box. I like the Bucks Ed Spirit Away. Yes so she's the bathrooms. She sneaks her in and is like you. Have I have to ask for a job. They can't turn you down. The only way you're going to lose of this place is that you're must be given employment and we've already been given so many rules that she's been well. I guess the first rule who was get across the river before the sun goes down the second one was hold your breath going across the bridge so you're already thinking like. Is that another thing. Is that like a trope in wrapping his folklore or is that just like he's not stepping on a crack yeah right exactly right so goes. Go get a job. Sean enough advice geared a job. That's and commodity is a Yokthai which is a a sort of Phantom. I don't know how else to describe a bit like he's got forearm. He's unusual looking yeah. He's a spider guy. He's pretty cool is spider man with a Walrus Moustache He lives in the boiler. He's animated the soot to do work He feeds them with little starfish cookies again. We'll start cookies candy that came into what is this. It looks so bright children's cereal or is this like ancient yeah. He has four arms six real taught muscle. He can stretch them as much as he can to. The infinite shelves herbs that he has right he I I mean this. I think is when I was just like I think this I love it right like when you're watching the first time we like. I understand I understand the logic everything even though I've never seen anything like this vic the logic affirming like see I can help and she only Deci Hertz right. She's I'll do what the creatures do and he's like. This is not your this isn't your zone while also he says you're useless but he also says something really interesting which is like. It's inappropriate to take someone's job. He's creatures do this and also her trying into enter. The ecosystem right leads to them all like going on a weird little strike where they suddenly dropped the whole on and she's disruptor sure right but she's bad at it. She can't pick up the coal. It's really heavy heavy for her. I I don't know I feel like the sits seen seen as like. Are you out like this. Is it right right like come on guys talk about the sexy thousand percent in good great. I mean honestly just from the emergence of Mr Arms Right commodity right and seeing a character who is against anything that this character is very confident that he is so confident understanding the rules of the world right how he needs to operate what she needs to do what everyone needs to do. There's something kind of infectious about like as opposed to like who who's been like fuck okay. Let's try this hold your breath and who a human whereas Camacho seems like of machinery that is animate uh-huh he performs a service like then you find out later what he's doing the reveal of then how he is like spreading the bath sure sure like the tags comedown yeah yeah yeah running running about his the CPU for the Bath House right right right right but also that he is in perpetual motion the MS trying to help her trying to turn what she's in. Turn never stops doing his job and it's like you know it's so the confidence of him being like I can keep doing what I need to do and also take care of. That's right taking care of these creatures taking care of these. This little girl getting worked on getting getting paid right and then Lynn shows up Lynn who is like the friend right there watching this movie a couple of days ago. I've probably we've seen this movie almost as many as many times as any other movements ever seen when just say four times aren't really. I don't really watch a lot but and I hadn't seen it. The last time I saw it was with an ex girlfriend and her two children one of whom was too young and really freaked the fuck out but I'd completely forgotten about the character of Lynn and it's actually a really charming yeah and you can read a little bit of Pacific thing to hold here yeah but in my memory of the movie I I mean I remembered all the principal characters except for Lynn. Maybe because she's the only issue human she's not right no. She doesn't look as sluggish as the other slug women. She is not human because she hero is human and they all remind smells like a hume. Yeah Okay humanoid annoyed right latest Kaman. She is the most she looks human rush she is. I have to assume a person who died. I don't really if I wanted to delve into the logic of what the spirit world is where you're dealing with these elemental creatures because like he's drawing all these Shinto beliefs spirits everywhere in the right spirits in the air the plants so like that's who some of these things are but then like the humans you're sort of like are these are these people who died and have moved into the spirit world world when they always in the spirit world nail attendance. Are there frogman. Little men female attendants are slugs right right but Lynn but Lenin some there are some human right. I don't know Linda's very clearly. You're human. You stink right yeah okay. She eats a a new one of the first things she does. His eats that fried new which is not something that I would do where she's like really into yeah right. That's is true so she's not human but she does read as if you're she is human and humanoid like I said what are you ready. Mary sign that only makes us more confusing thank you this is from the Chieveley Wiki but they're quoting the art of spirited away book sure Okay Linens portrayed as a human being in the film in the Japanese Picture Picture Book Lynn is described as Jakko a white tiger okay too. That's all Ya Yep yeah but they they identify her. As just spirit as species here right right is a spirit bright everyone sanction. She's a human spirit whereas the others are not I don't know yeah yeah we a couple other humans Ryan when where where she sleeps where they have their aprons. She is certainly the most normal central character in this film. She's architect. We fully understand. She's like the older sister who's what kind of you're right but this panther every right but she is helpful and she you know commodity. Kinda bribes her into lake. Take this new tinker to four new Baba. Take her upstairs and they again. They're like you must you cannot back down. You must ask for work at a drill. Get A job. You have to become part of the economy you have to be and there is this weird. Connor wants to escape childhood. You must become a productive member of this economy. Yes right right it. Describe right you know the the free rides over you gotta be contributing something right. You can't just bum around here which which is one thing that I feel like we'll get to know face but why he so disruptive like no faces not part of how the all the the capitalists sort of collective elective balances at work. He's still getting chills talking about all this. I watch this movie again. I highly recommend a million times. It's pretty much always kind of reward yeah even if you don't even if you WanNa Kinda just have it on and sort of soaking not like think about it too hard right. You know what I mean. It's rewarding in every way yeah. It's rewarding insertive really really concentrating and thinking about every single choice. That's being made I mean when she enters the bath house. It's so beautiful. It's so scary right. It is that kid feeling of I don't know the rules of this place grownups and all these right but there's also like frogs and radish spirit right this was his most can't even can't even talk about that shot out of her squeezed up again to eight at the rabbits the register and he has those ten coming off his breasts and so also he's nice when you're all their spouse to her and she's like right yeah right yeah right yeah yeah. The spirits aren't like monsters vinyl Vieillard right here in Berlin and Evelyn right. Are we going to say Griffin now. He's GonNa say a couple things. The radish spirit has definitely big. Ben Energy feels director actor. Hell Yeah but but also this I think was the most expensive film at the time and I mean Monan okay had been a a game changing sensation he can right right so you had a bit of a blank check and because his stature has risen so much news going to have to use more. CGI for the film knew it was going to be very production. He said his original script is three hours long and so he was like I have to. This is insane okay. His quote was in order to get to a manageable length. I had to cut out all the candy in his mind this movie sorry so flat and colorless something I haven't. I've seen a million times. Why don't you cut it down just a radish spirit on an elevator shit. We've seen a thousand times before I mean. That's just just act to you. Got Your building blocks of Hollywood story totally right there you go yeah. Hollywood insider meeting with the Goddess Fat Vegetable and Elevator and you're watching Lynn who again like same thing with Hukou like antagonistic to us sometimes but then you watch them be altruistic yeah in your you know she does she eats the sort of gets her through with Newt Right. What I was GonNa say is there are so many characters in this film primary characters who are so oh detailed and the more detail you having a basic character obviously the more of a nightmare it is to animate and multiple scenes especially in extreme motion and it's the reason why most cartoon designs very simplistic. Charlie Brown is sort of like a platonic ideal for a cartoonist because it's like it's just a ball. It's a sphere and it's got a couple of DOTS and lines on it and it's easy to draw him from any angle but like what's her name. I keep wanting to say Bobby Yoga because I'm a more you Baba aw is just like the first moment she appears on screen and you're like he's going to really he's going to challenge himself to keep animating this character for the next ninety minutes. Let's with that wrinkle structure on her face that one scene very late in the film with Danica where just her nose sort of hovering yeah and you're there's no logical way to not have that nose because it's so also the work you have to be like. I need to fully figure out how this knows looks in three dimensions here all the wrinkles wrinkles and like like this knows and I need to know how to animate it within space and movement also just not too easy. Let's give her a ton of jewelry right like everything freethinking and her are completely illogical right so this was the first one where they sold the rights to Disney before production in order to get financing to help complete the Mojo really yeah. That was a big thing where once he cracked it. It was like this is going to be really expensive. We're going to need some more money. We need outside fundings. I think they sold to other countries as well but that lassiter lots of hugging lassiter went to Disney and said like can we please write lassiter lots of hugging and lasted. Who's recently been disgraced. Oh is that the Pixar but he was such a fan of so many people were as I said I think clements a muscular. Yes we're heavily inspired bye-bye. Leo's throw right for the great mouse detective things like that right. He's like you don't understand. This is like this is the guy we have to like. I think he sold to them..

"Enter check and you can get the four week trial in the free postage in the digital scale no commitment and let me say these stamps seemed like a natural aphrodisiac because that talk talk is really digging this. They can't solve licken the stamp it is that that thing I love dreams but that it when you do remember a dream vividly that sense of like trying to pull apart wide. These elements came together. Why did my brain construct this. And why did I react to it this way and the best movies. I think do have that kind of quality. Where are they can be a dream end puzzle at the same time which I think this movie weirdly does like. It's your dream than a puzzle you know right yeah but you're trying to figure figure out why it has that sort of impact that it does and it's playing in a zone of like it's it's a very like Alice in wonderland style story. You know it's a sort as shells and Wunderle Eight Pinocchio and there s this kid goes on the magical it may or may not be a dream and seem like their internal life but it's like also about that like pin number of between being a kid and being a grownup. You're still you can accept in this world. Lemon states the best kind of state right but like you are getting ready to move beyond it like in to grow up and like all the fears being boring and being you know set in your ways like you know being born like basically right that are going to come. I'm with being a grown up you know and like all you know but like whereas Disney movies are often about like childlike innocence right fantasy sea world forever like a fantasy world that still requires you to build your character work and like be part of a collective active right yeah. We're there are rules and it's often incredibly unfair frightening like you know what I mean the world of adulthood altered and as in with as with every Miyazaki movie there are no like out villains particularly like you. Baba's not a villain Britain well. It's I mean she's. She has to deal with being a boss right but at the end she she heroes waving goodbye to you bobble along with everybody else. One hundred percents like yeah well no so at the end you Baba. Does this thing that seems cruel like I will test you. You have to pass my test and I think that this the DUB ignores this but in the original version she's like the babies like you can't do this mean like let her go and you. Baba's like these are the rules have to give her a test it in the contract yeah the only anyway she gets her name back because if she passes the test and it's like you. Baba's being like she has to have grown up like a little bit right if this place hasn't changed her. She's stuck here. You know like you know she's. He's only allowed to be free if she realizes something about yourself just like. Oh right right and so it's not like you. Baba's doing this because I'm embittered right right. I'm doing it because I'm in charge of this thing right. I I know you're the one who usually reads the Miyazaki. No reason votes there. Were a lot of interesting ones here in the wikipedia also in on your mystical leather bound book but it said I created a heroine who is an ordinary girl someone with whom the audience can sympathize sympathize. It's not a story in which the characters grow up but a story in which they draw something already inside them brought out by the particular circumstances. That's a really interesting thing about the movie theater is that it's not like she sort of grows its that she sort of comes comes to a greater sense of understanding with who she is. You know I'm just going to be end yeah how the world is going to work for her right where everybody and she's also in a context in the bath house dealing with particular circumstances that that that are I would say simultaneously allowing and demanding being more of her gas whereas when we when we meet a hero in the back seat of the car she's with these Kinda like pretty lame. Parents parents are Kinda lame distracted kind of unresponsive but like she's not a bad girl. She's kind of like a you know a little whiny and Sorta like what do I get like you know a a little demanding but what I wonder what the one of the ten billion things I love about this movie that she is not some special creature who is selected for the magic world because of for special man not Harry Potter. She doesn't arrive in spirit spirit land and they're like it's you the won't even waiting and waiting and they're like well. You can scrub floors and also you. You smell bad. Also you stink and you're skinny and small you seem pretty useless honestly and it also is a movie where unlike those those other types of narratives like wizard of Oz are also underlined or whatever there's not the moment like things get fantastical while she's still with her parents and a week before you can go well. Maybe that's the deniability point. There's no more should falls down a hole in your life. We'll now who knows what happened. She cocked her head. Yeah go into a magical portal. You know they go into the mysterious tunnel right but she does it with her parents. That's right. This is like some old amusement park like this must be. I think the opening of this movie is so unsettling and one thing that I it's very frightening. This is the couldn't show this movie to a little kid kid. I think I think it's a little too intense. The the opening what happens earns that whole well. There's that but I was thinking of something really specific moment that I had forgotten. It's kind of like what you're talking about. When when you see something again like I forgot about that it's a really quick moment bits before they even reached the tunnel and and there are you talking about the breach talking about her father's on the dirt road and he's going fast and they passed his four wheel drive they pass a Stone Seltzer on and it's CG so it silently looks different area to smoother and you track her. Yes turning her head. I think to watch it as it passes. It's moving at a very different speed yeah. There's something so portentous about about that moment yes. It's not like the tornado picked the house up and flew flute away and then everything was different. It is more. It's like more gradual what you're talking about. Though is when I saw this film in theaters in London England Kevin Town odium corrupting. Why was it released earlier there. Did you get on a plane in order to see it early. You know why it was released later. Nigel Smith's review use as from two thousand some three so how'd you September two thousand three. I think it came out later. What were you saying so. How'd you missed it in theaters in the United States. It's no I grew up in England. I was a high schooler. You knew about this. Is this the new bit. Ben Knows. I feel like it's come up. Mike remember not on this podcast. What a night. She's No. No it's come up on this. This is just revisiting favourite dream. He's like Oh my oh my God. I'm back in my home and I remember not knowing what I was in for never seen him before. I was aware of him. I was aware of Mano K which had had release here you know like I was aware that he was this respected creature and then that moment where you see I'm like Oh. It's like sent like a little chill up. It's really feels. It's like wait so that's what's going to happen here. Expected probably just something more bonkers right like something like trippy quote unquote right like what an American remake of Alice in Wonderland might be like directed by someone like timber sure twisted I also like my. I feel like weirdly a lot of the weight. I was putting on this movie. When I saw it was like a everyone saying this. Is this masterpiece that's GonNa win the Oscar and be this is the highest grossing film history of Japan versus there yeah they had this this titanic slayer reputation right right and very often the highest grossing film of any country is incredibly accessible assessable sure sort of like stripped down fundamental like story basics audience satisfying. Oh totally yeah. That's a see this movie and be like wait wait. What did the entire country. You're like. Japanese people think this is normal right right. This is the most accessible like in the middle. Everyone can come to right this is this is the four quadrant hit right right. That's the thing not the like you know. The the level of quality like this is something that everyone is able to get in on. John was very odd because yes it starts with too boring. Parents in a car spends very little time before it gets them finding an abandoned amusement park just and then her parents parents become grotesques who can't stop eat it and there's no food look so good to fully understand the moment of reality break which the scariest thing. I feel like if your child talking about now and just show this to an actual young very young child scariest thing. It's just like my parents will stop paying attention to me and then you'll be you'll be alone in a world. That's indifferent to me. That asks me just that sort of build to really i. Her parents are just sort of ignoring her and she's he's in a bad mood. She's moving and kids often. We'll know I knew that I had moved on. I was nine like shut up. That's sort of you think ready a pretty sure really pretty sure that kind of that pain of like I've been like ripped from my school in its traumatic and then the parents turn into pigs. That's bad really bad now. She's alone in misplace. All these like weird ghosts and creatures start showing up and walking around around the lights come on which is kind of wonderful also to literally disappear starts to literally disappear in a kid shows that Hukou another boy boy. Her Age shows up and you're like okay all right. Here's here's our friend and he does the thing where he he blows the little pedals right and you're like when the that's where I would get so frightening. What are the rules of this. What did where did. He just do never explain right whatever that is very. It's presented. Is this very pivotal thing that he's doing and you expect them later. Be Like well because the pedal spell belly. You'll be you'll be safe now. I think that's where literal minded thirteen year. Old Griffin is just like I don't get the smoke yeah. What are the rules of this to me. No one ever says like so visit the spirit world right. It's where you go and you die or it's where creatures of elemental being. Alex Elemental existence are no one says anything like that. The only thing you Baba says like this were spirits. Come to fucking relax right. That's it it is also such an unnerving thing to be like Oh. It's an abandoned amusement park yeah here. There are a lot of these yeah I mean as a Westerner. You have almost like a double displacement actually triple displacement because think about it first of all. You're watching watching a movie. That's from a pretty different culture like a a for a modern society Japanese cultures really different from American culture and a culture even even though it had become so westerner right but it's still I mean this stuff goes back thousands of years so first of all you're watching the Japanese culture where the basic relationship to life and death breath is so fundamentally different than how we perceive or or where or how you interpret the relationship between the spiritual world and the and the natural all that stuff so already you have that then within that culture you are in an amusement park is a kind of weird like affect Cima Weird US base right right. Oh and also it's not just an amusement park. It's an abandoned amusement parks and others the third displacement and that's even before you cross the river now and you're in a bath house for Gods and spirits so I mean like even in the baseline of where where we as Westerners entered. This movie is like the ground is shifting under our feet like I happen to kiss yeah. Good Yeah like all right. I like. I'm making my way in Japan. Oh I guess I'm in a ban being an amusement park and you're like this is a lot only goes as far as I know. Japan had this incredibly crippling recession in the early nine right. I feel like that's sort of in reference. There were a lot like a ghost town right right in the last decade the N. like so maybe that's sort of in reference to that your country kind of had this frenzy of construction and like Innovation Asian inside of it and what's her connection to the actual country where part of that's the that's what the that's what setting all that stuff is right. I mean this is actually like one of the most accessible parts of the movie because its political which is me as ocoee being like Japan guys like what what happened yeah like here. You're driving around in your Audi cars. Earth you wearing your golf shirt bragging about right yeah. Don't care about your kids..

"It's weird that she died but I know that she's option option for people who obviously were forged in the fires of knowing these things right. Here's the diner stand the appeal of knowing it because it's fun because then you feel like you are on the inside right. You have inside information or it's kind of like I can see the strings of the puppets you know likely but I like was obsessed trying to figure stuff out because I wanted to be making this stuff and David was obsessed with trying to figure this stuff out because he wanted to like be critically like analyzing the stugotz yeah and it's weird that like people who are or like you know. I like I'm trying to think of any job and then I'm getting caught in the web of being like we'll any job I say now sound backhanded you know but like someone who was like an arranged surgeon grain surge world's greatest brain surgery world's greatest brain surgeon also being like well. They're feeling sevens sevens off in this movie because I heard he's fulfilled. Its movie contract right. That's weird that he feels like he needs to know that it is the brain. Carson was a brain surgeon who was good at his job. He was incredibly really good really good at it. The Cuba gooding junior played junior to plan. I think we can only inspire me as ocoee. I would say to this generation this relevant. Do you know what he would say absolutely need to talk to like get a job in scrubs force. That's that'll build your care. I just think it's fascinating passing the trek and spirited away the movie that we're talking about today. Come out in the same year. Spirit away is releasing a year later both two thousand one but in America it wins the second ever best animated Oscar Trek when I and when when best emitted like feature was established people were like this is the Pixar Category A category like movies Senate Commerce right they will surely dominate right and in fact the first two years it's dreamworks the First Year Shrek Beats Monsters Inc.. I think because Monsters Inc magazine is like oh well. That's like a soft. Pixar movie and Shrek is here to terrible. Monsters INC is like a pleasant but obviously a very light. It's not a serious this film right and now like Monsters Inc is like a paragon of storytelling and Shrek. No one likes like even the kids who grew up with trek now just make trick. Dank names. Yeah I mean it doesn't help Shrek. Shrek has not aged well. I don't drink his aged very bad. I don't think there are like herons showing their kids track. Belle of the ball yeah no large into a Pumpkin. That sounds like a joke. Shrek would make really is even through osmosis been influenced by Shrek. Am I incorrect in thinking that in track they turn an onion into a carriage and sounds right. I think there was some joke about onions. Jeans and a lot of jobs are like flares right.

More of a neophyte to Muzak is sorta arc of this is my exposure therapy this this mini series I even told her when I was a child didn't get it and didn't try to engage with the other music movies and then when this came out in the states it was such a big sensation that was like goddess and that was was also an Oscar Junkie at that point that unified David knives that we were thirteen year old Oscar industry insiders reading entertainment weekly magazine complaining about the show for me as ocoee latest Litas Tadpole. We look we were real insiders. We hate the fact that everyone is an insider. Now I know God. Everyone's trying to tell me. How Oscar would it be Star Wars Guy Saying I've been I've been in this trust in my ass stars in five years yeah but sought saw this when it came out uh states the dubbed version and went yeah. I totally don't get this. I was fourteen at the time maybe thirteen and I really yeah okay thirteen hundred title to yeah I was thirteen and I was like don't don't get this and just don't get it in a bad way. I guess you're saying Yeah I was like I don't understand. The people are connecting to now like I don't understand that it's a wonderful. I feel over owned. No I was like I don't understand what the thing is right yeah and clearly. I'm in the minority orgy of the same. I mean I saw it as a full adult and I also but well we'll get. We'll get into right but so this may Sir I wanna I wanNA watch all of these and see if I can create this yeah and it's all sort of been building up to this one being like. Can I revisit this movie for the first time in almost was twenty years right and make sense of it so you haven't seen it since you saw it in. Ot Wow yeah okay and saw dubbed and I've watched it some yeah and I I was watching. I was like this is kind of just a completely undeniably powerful object yeah like I was kind of stunned that there was ever for a time where I wasn't connecting with it like even if this isn't my favorite movie and I wouldn't put it on my personal top ten grace films of all. I was like watching I I was like this is like the Sistine Chapel or something. This is like some undeniable accomplishment. Humanity fully came to the thing is is now the time taken up okay. He's opened the folder. He has in a clipping a yellow financial missile salmon-colored always been this color so he's got a piece of newspaper reason that I really wanted to do spirited away because it it is I think undeniably the work of a total genius even if it's someone inaccessible for cultural reasons psychological reasons or whatever I agree fully but for me I think the thing thing that I've thought about almost as much as I thought about spirited away is a review spirited away that I read and then clipped as you can see from the Financial Times the September September two thousand and three and by the way when we were recording are episode. You invoked this I did did you. I don't remember Mike but it was either before said. Do you guys remember that review so this is stuck back. Here's some context when spirited away came out I was at the time of political cartoonist and I had all these file folders where would keep track of like Afghan atrocities Iraqi on address just like all these horrible file folders depressing to look at and then I had this other file file folder. I just called great writing and there's just stuff in here that I really enjoyed like this is a list of all of Kool Keith's personas. That's cool. Dr Octagon Fly Ricky Rickie the wine taster Mr Berbick. It always just made me happy to have this and then this is This is an academic article written by my Godfather called treatment of hernia in the later Middle Ages surgical correction and social construction. My Godfather is a historian of medicine is very intense article about how they performed Hernias and thirteen hundred then I have this invoice for these incredibly dangerous magnets that I bought that almost tore my marriage apart but the like through magnet forth like physically arrows magnets called gals boy super super magnets they were these magazines were so powerful they were dangerous. I could not believe I was legally allowed to order these magnets because I mean they could go through through. You had to keep them away credit cards and pacemakers. There were so powerful on one time I was trying to. I was doing what you're not supposed to like. Similar later and yeah right right around and part of the magnet flew a shard of the magnet flew across the kitchen and almost took out my ex-wife's I anyway how can I do you mind. I won't say it on. Can I look at the invoice. I'm curious. You're saying that you shouldn't have been able to buy these. I'm curious. Wow that is cheap right. Can I say that is I want and you got a discount. You gotTA break price brake disc wow. I can't believe something this dangerous could cost the little money right. Okay so maybe even two thousand two or whatever yeah we will not say down there. It was a nice down there. It was a time of transition endowed. GonNa say a time of transition is really cheap to live down there back then I will say I'll probably never live in his nice and apartment as they lived down there. I will say too. I mean David had primed me with live down there. I was not expecting this far down and say how far down was pretty far down. Live down there. Dan General Urban Urban Living Down There Okay Anyway Financial Times spirited away review. The author is Nigel Andrews. Who I think is still the finding in fact believe you're right. He is because I have since been in touch with him anticipation of this podcast seventy two years old old he's he's sort of emeritus yeah totally totally so. I I love this review. Not GonNa read the entire of you but you're gonNA have to indulge. Let me let me read certain sections of the and the first thing I noticed I can't remember if I read this review before or after I saw spirited away but the day you frequent reader of the Financial Times was just I was a political cartoonist. I was a subscriber I subscribe to the Financial Times and the New York Times in one hundred million policy journals right and I liked Nigel Andrews reviews like reviewed allow international movies and stuff announced great credit so the thing to know about this review is that Nigel Andrews Grades Movies on a star system one through five stars and the first thing that I noticed about this review was it's six stars. He broke his own star system so when I first picked it up I was like printing early six stars. Mr Our interest only goes to five stars. I sense of review. Yes that's right six stars so he's like. I know get Freddie. gets me so fucking amp. That's listen to this. This is when it's like yeah. Oh Shit uh-huh oh shit somebody like the movie Miodrag Really Yes. That's right six stars exception exception must be made for the exceptional spirited away is a feast of wonderment a movie classic and Ajoy that will enrich your existence until you the two were spirited away rush now while life lasts it is pretty crazy to say not only the great movie that you should see but this might be a thing you remember until you die you will oh yeah but but more importantly you do not want to risk dying before you see this film totally really do not leave exactly exactly where death is inevitable seeing spirited away so. I can't imagine anyone who's like see. Shrek now while life. You know what I mean spirited away. This is part of the core curriculum. y'All you might get hit by a bus. Yeah I think yeah here's the here's CC. I think this is the this is the core of the entire review..

"david rees" Discussed on Blank Check with Griffin & David

"Right right and you don't it was Listen coup. I don't remember it but my mom told me once when I was little I fell into a podcast. They said they'd ended it and re recorded things on top but I just remembered. The podcast was called. Its name was the Kaku Kaku podcast. Your real name is podcast. Hukou podcast in the rivers. I don't know you'll find find out at the end of this episode the adversity I had to overcome in order start this podcast okay. Okay okay okay now. We were talking about something very serious truck. We're talking tunes dance. And of course we're contrasting spirited away to track with our guest who's never seen track. No and I made a joke of it. How trek opens and and you said that is not actually how strict starts is it and then I showed you the opening of Shrek and you are really now. I'm broken. You are broke. What did you think Shrek Woah like you knew he was a big big green ogre and that it's like a fairy tale world and I knew that Eddie Murphy was in it. It's donkey and okay. I assumed it was like probably kind of knowing and cynical and the way that all contemporary kids culture is which I didn't know is going to open with him literally like ripping a page out of a fairytale book and wiping his but yet with it right and then also flushing out how she's like okay. I guess this is a fantasy world but whatever right this is a flushing sound and he walks out of the house. I don't know you're saying then I'll start with right the night and then a song already being played ironically right. No no kind of what's did it come out two thousand one okay. This is two years after all star comes out as the single from the mystery man soundtrack. That's right it had been hard of another originates in another movie right. It was sort of the video for it has like clips for mystery men right and then two years later. It's like mystery meant bombed. all-star was a hit. They're sort of taking a hit song two years late late right. It has nothing to do with Shrek though no it's like. I guess he's an all-star lyrics have no real movie. It's the animated someone started with like shake it off or I really really cute today. Legitimate hit song but then the other thing is that rat race came came out the same year and ends with them arriving smashmouth concert and dancing to all star race another. No it was a comedy with wake like a big on some sort of like a cannonball run or ruin ECHINACEA Goldberg right yeah. They've got to find the money money. They're in a rat race around the country so fallen from Grace Jerry Zucker yet. It's one of the three but just the ones Oscar and it's like John cleese earliest and Dave Thomas Run a casino and they offer like one hundred million dollars the first person who can get to whatever location as God. It's like Whoopi Goldberg Jon Lovitz Rowan Atkinson Green on Cuba gooding junior getting the biggest comedy stars of two thousand this a huge hit movie ever they some good. I think you did okay. Actually I mean they really called rat race. Never heard of John. CLEESE is like the evil billionaire who organized the rat race here. They all are gonNA poster. Poster poster had this sort of big heads. AAC Hit amy smart how smart a lot because there's like brick and mirrors in it right like a lot of other author people's sensitive lead. It's Kinda cheap and it's also one of those things for like. It's a mad mad mad mad world outside of the main cast when they go to a cameo. You're like holy. League shit is the three stooges Sir John gielgud right Taylor swift and onscreen bearing in this the biggest stars are the people who are the the main characters when they go to a Commu. It's like Dean Cain yeah or your mouth right. Is that supposed to be like a big like Aha moment. right ends with smashmouth trek starts with smashmouth. The point is you were saying this is like everything I hate about. Children's film state and you'd have the pop song. This cynical stuff trick is is the moment when all of that becomes like Oh. This is good. This can be taken seriously. I always associated that with Aladdin which also never seen because isn't allowed the one where Robin Williams is the genie and he's like camera and be like I know you parenting. This movie sucks. I do too wink wink. It's not like that but Aladdin is like the seed being it has like it's the first time that that's happening right. Rats Enberg comes off of that and goes like this is what we should be doing and they're all these stories stars above the title like in an inner kids cartoon right. We're going to put Mike Myers his name above the tight right right but they're all the stories about like when they were doing toy story when they were like doing story Israel's on toy story that Katzenberg kept on pushing. It'd be like the character should really be assholes like it should be really cynical and more pop culture references like he was taking all the wrong lessons from a Latin the almost shutdown toy story because they were like this unwatchable. This is like all right unsure on some Ray wh-why woody or isn't he supposed to be the hero early waste so me and all the directors at Disney were like fighting against him like pushing for that and then he goes over to dreamworks needs like I can do whatever the fuck I want and Shrek is like the culmination moment meant and it wins best animated film the First Ever Best Animated Film at the Oscars and it gets nominated for the palm door and it has taken so seriously as a movie that then culture just completely warps around it the Latin those elements were popular but they only is a stirring old fashioned adventure Muga uh-huh songs that are uniform. It looks Nice. It's like fifteen percent of the movie because it's only Robin Williams is in there and he's not turning the camera but he's calling you know and he's like he's doing a carson routine but he's also forty minutes for like then trek. Everything is like fuck no one's fucking lovable and Shrek. They're all jerk at the time everyone everyone loved it because they were sick of Disney right. It's two thousand and one the Disney Renaissance is kinda sputtering out to resume Tarzan. People are Kinda like we get this formula were bored of it and treks like I get the formula to Ha- gen-x Disney's actually like fucked like if you re run real stories they're so Dr Right that whole take had become so mainstream name that like any like six year old at a mall could get what Shrek was like hitting on right and then the weird thing is for generation the versions the parody versions of the fairytale characters in Shrek canonical become those characters right like there's a generation like my sister who didn't grow up watching the Disney films. She grew up watching the fucking looking ladies watching the ironic commentary on the source and that is the new cannon right with source like fucking seven dwarves and last last glassy. Cj Logical Liar and like all these things fairytales man. They're just like you know that's eight up those fairy tale man right the the real world like we're in Bosnia. What's going on there yeah. Why does it allow it and talk about Bosnia but as you said the movie is best screenplay like people were like Oh this is fantastic. The animated has finally become adult like finally there's like a serious animated film. Also people started look good. Now you watch and you're like Oh. This looks to write Rosero his hair right them trying to go photo realistic. That's the weird. She looks like a little person. Humans and trek like stubble and shit like like they were like trying to get all like the gross details down but another villain looks like creepy yeah right yeah anyway. Do you think it was good further culture. I think it was terrible for the call really yeah. I think it actually caused because of the kind of cynicism or the yeah. This is the kind of stuff stuff I talk about. All the time like yes. Danny McBride is why trump got elected south park which will look trek is like why trump keep standing on that street quarter as long August lonely street corner but someday someday people will stop stop parking down and take my pamphlets per second process. The first thing you said as Danny Danny Boyle is my trump. got a leg probably to fuck calculus. What's David's beef with Steve Jobs Yeah. No I think Shrek is really bad for the culture and I think a thing that it did which I resent is people then start to to feel like they're hip to the things that stories are doing you know like do you like this always happens. This is something I let me get deadpool. You're going further down another one another one of my little hobby horses that will delight you with later yeah which is about people include into like story structure sure and stuff. That's when all this stuff is keyed which it's like storytelling tropes existed because they were field tested for centuries and these are the most effective ways to tell emotional stories and now. I feel like people are scared of doing functional storytelling because they're like Oh. This is like that cliche but I do think sincerity. He's now Kinda back. There's two heads the driving down right but I do. I think that's a promise that everyone thinks they're smart to how stories work like the whole culture no yeah that's all the sort of like honest trailers right everything wrong with X. Movie in ten seconds. I think income talking more about ironman there would like that but I also think there's this I think it's part of a broader phenomenon which Isis with the popularity of entertainment weekly magazine okay which early nine which was kind of like now everybody understands what a tent pole movie is and won on an award boxoffice and everyone is like an industry insider. I'm not saying that knowledge should be held by a secret cabal of power players but why ending a list of power all right but I think the the the other side of that is this this idea of people being like Oh. My God picks are really no story like they can really crack a story structure of this Pixar. Movie is so amazing they wouldn't be able to expand on that well right exactly and I don't know maybe I mean it's. I guess it's not pick SARS fault and I. It's the knowingness yes. It's all part of culture. I guess of of knowingness. I don't know how to say whether it's a movie is being self referential I material or whether it's people not responding to the story as a story but responding to it as a story as a as doing a structure you know that can be built more or less elegantly. I also the success of the marvel. Cinematic Universe is letting adding the audience in on the act of franchise building that right wing your investors with us in this ongoing narrative right and so much of like the Marvel Oval Culture is people speculating about what's going to happen in the next movie and then growing their theories confirmed or denied and then walking out of that and being like well look at what it sets up up going forward right like there are two marvel movies that end with any sense of finality because more movies end with a scene that negates whatever the emotional final ending of the movie was a secret scene at the end of the trailer sometimes that sometimes just in the movie to relieve ending where it's like whatever sense of emotional closure does your narrative closure we came to on this to our narrative is up ended by needing to point your happening next so you can start speculating in the idea of how they're growing everything out and the fact that everyone knows how many movies marvel actors have left on their contract and things like that where they're like..
