CEO of X2, Mark French, on How His Product Has Disrupted the Market
"Now. A couple of questions. I have here for you one. Is you guys are operating this business. And i would say that it is. It is disruptive what you're doing from what i can tell. The brand seems to be disruptive. What do you accredit the the rapid growth to do. What do you attribute the rapid growth to why is it. Being such a disruptive success. I would say there's more people coming to the category now right so there's certain people that would never try an energy drink right that more health conscious consumer really was not interested in putting in other bodies some of these beverages that had you know some you know ingredients that you can't even pronounce so as more people. Are you know looking for energy solutions. Whether it's a coffee drinker. That wants something. A little bit cleaner lighter Or you know somebody that might be drinking other energy drinks but is trying to live a healthier lifestyle. You know. i think that's really where the disruption comes in also. There's never really been a brand that you know was built in the locker room in this energy category right so you know. We're really fortunate that Death net recently featured us as a sports drink. Innovator we're not really a sports drink. We're not a hydration drink or something that you might take Before you want to do some exercise or if you wanna just have a little bit more energy and focus throughout the workday but you wanna have it with clean healthy ingredients and you know the other reason why people might consider us to be somewhat. Disruptors is just because of you know this athlete a model. there really haven't been athletes like saquon. Barkley labonte david kawhi leonard and now kendall tool who's one of the top peleton athletes That are joining a company like ours as shareholders and partners in the business. I think it's just you know shedding some light that there is renovation innovation in the energy category and that's where we could probably be looked at as being somewhat

Why Is It Important to Potty Train Cows?
"Now we have online news editor david. Graham he's here to talk about potty training cows. Hi dave hey sir all right. We're already laughing but it's not silly. It's serious why would we need to tell cows where to go. Well house as you may have seen or heard make a lot of waste appeal lot. They poop watch and not so much of a problem if they're out in the field and actually it's not always the problem when they're in a bar setting because the way barnes have operated until recently scousers confined in these stalls through tied up and so they can only sort of excrete in one area. The problem which is kind of a bit of conundrum is that as barnes have tried to become more. The cows have more free roam in the barn and so maybe you sometimes have hundred or more cows roaming around a bar and on these concrete floors their pooping and peeing everywhere. And that's not only sort of a health issue for the cows and actually for people to but when urine feces knicks. It actually creates a monja which is a very toxic chemical both cows in for people Ammonia can become nitrous oxide which is a very potent greenhouse gas and so ironically by trying to improve cow welfare were also sort of hurting the environment and so the question is can we get cows. We get cows to sort of excrete in just one location. It would be a lot easier to clean it up or store to use it like as fertilizer or other types of things
Exploring The Murder of Yvonne Lane: Reaching Out to Joe Wilkes
"It seemed like the best way to get to the bottom of what was going on was to finally speak to the man whose testimony landed david in prison for life. It was time to reach out to joe wilkes to be clear. I personally have not spoken to joe as you know the private investigators from proclaim justice advised me to let them do all the interviews during their preliminary investigation. Anything i may say or ask. A witness could taint their statements for the court. So john hardin wrote joe informing him of who he and danny wexler are and what they're doing reinvestigating the murder to find the truth of what happened now for i've seen between sue and joe hearing all the interviews. He's done with sue and other media. I did not think that joe would be too happy to hear from anyone plus if you remember even though he told police that he killed you on by cooperating and telling the police that david had hired him. He got a lesser sentence than david. Thirty years with the possibility of parole. Joe has already done twenty two years so he could be looking at freedom in just eight years. I figured he would have no interest in bringing all of this up again. I thought he would just wanna finish out his time and move on without any of the mass that happens every time he speaks to someone about this case and when i say mess i mean all of his conflicting statements in fact i figured he would actually send them a nasty message back telling them to fuck off or something if he even responded. But that didn't happen. Joe wrote back eager to talk and tell his story so the guys worked setting up a legal visit which proved to be next to impossible in ohio to get done in a timely manner and so we waited and waited. But in the meantime we couldn't wait time so we tracked down some other key witnesses. I
The Not so Digital Workforce
"You may think of the digital workforce as zoom meetings and shed google docs but this trend encompasses a wide range of industries and types of work. This labor refers to a really wide suite of different types of work quite often The moment is being used to refer to digital knowledge. Work so any works. That's that can be undertaken through computers. I virtually remotely roth than having to be in a specific geographical location. That's david vissel. David is a human geography at the university of melbourne and he researches the changing relationship between people and place. There's a wide spectrum of other types of works that could equally be referred to as digital works so the economy in in cities. So things like uber and delivery and all of those new types of services that we're seeing springing up in in our cities that are absolutely reliance on networks of connected mobile phones and algorithms that drive that drive both the workers and consumers so even sectors threats we traditionally associate with being very different and very not digital say things like mining for example are increasingly using. Ai and different types of autonomous developments. So yes a labor certainly a massive consideration through across a lot of different sectors of the moment and it's very variable bull people participating in the digital workforce than ever before this rapid change is something. That's come out of necessity with the emergence of the pandemic but as david explains this influx of flexible and digital workers has an impact on the way how cities function well hit potentially involves all of us in terms of the effects that it has so even if you don't work at all and no doubt you purchase things and you use different online services so even consumers are using dish labor.

Thousands of Lawful US Residents Left in Afghanistan
"Cards are available and there are thirteen to fourteen million of them in the united states. For any number of reasons you can be the family member of an american citizen. You can be a religious worker. You can be an afghan who worked for the united states anytime for at least a year on the international security assistance mission for a year. You have gotten your green card that way you can mean. International broadcasting can be a member of an international organization. We don't know who those thousands of green card members are but david drucker. It made it to your paper. The washington examiner yesterday. The big story of the lincoln hearing was the green card number thousands of waffle. Us resonance left in afghanistan. Were you surprised by that. No not necessarily. I mean i think the larger issue here or you know the issue here he is. Does the administration know exactly. How many are there. They are is it. Thousands and thousands is it the low thousands The issue is one. We left them there but second do know who they are. David i have to disagree with you after three weeks. Four weeks of hearing about one hundred americans then bahir blankets at well. We have thousands of green card holders. Hey they're americans. They have legal permanent residents here. Like duane said next door neighbors a bread. Who married in american adam. The engineer chief engineer here his mom's canadian. Pr lp are everywhere. I mean they just left him right. And i think that's i think that's the larger issue but i also think it's important that the administration either knows who they left. Were doesn't know who they're left in. Are they being candid. Especially in these hearings earrings with what they know in decisions. They made in one of the things. I would like to see out of the senate today that i didn't really see out of the house yesterday as some really incisive pointed questionings with let's grandstand in so the administration either starts to talk about decisions. Made and what. The situation on the ground is more just simply reveals that it was as haphazard inside as it looked on the outside and they don't really know what's going on but i think it's important for the american public to understand that i definitely important for congress understand that to put the proper amount of pressure on the administration and at least be able to talk about this in a real way.
Federal Aid Saved Families During the Pandemic
"The money and other resources. The federal government brought to bear to keep people afloat during pandemic was in essence of vast anti-poverty program. We'll get a sense later. Today of how well the pandemic relief worked. When the us census releases twenty twenty data on poverty other indicators show the programs kept hunger at bay in many households and democrats are pushing to extend some of those programs which do have costs. Marketplace's amanda teacher has more the government provided billions of dollars in pandemic aid. Emergency unemployment benefits stimulus checks and increase supplemental nutrition assistance benefits or food stamps. Without all that care about dairy from. I focus on children's says things would have been much worse while dairy points to the advanced child tax credit deposits up to three hundred dollars a month per kid. They put cash directly in the hands of families cash. That's been going toward things like groceries or rent. Democrats want to continue the child tax benefit the treasury department says it would cost taxpayers about one hundred ten billion dollars a year. Eric york is with the tax foundation. It becomes just very expensive to make it permanent. She says that may be why.

When It Comes to Business, Ignore the Real World
"Reworked book with a look at the essay entitled ignore the real world this goes into that common trope that new ideas are bound to fail or that these things may work for a company like base camp but would never work for company x. and as always i'm joined by base camp co-founders and the authors of rework david meyer hanson. Welcome thank you and jason freed. Welcome sean. I've noticed in a lot of these essays. Start with something along the lines of you always hear someone has said xyz and in this case the quote you use is that idea would never work in the real world is still something that that you find pretty prevalent yet. But that's the that's the standard rebuttal. I still is or or or there's a variation of it which is like that would never work for us. That would never work in our company and so that would never work in. The real world is kind of a catchall for all those variations on that rebuttal. But yeah we still hear that. I think what's interesting is that One of the things we heard up until a year ago is that remote work would never work here or there or everywhere. Feel like dr seuss thing there. But what's nice is that that myth was busted obviously know during difficult circumstances but everyone had it was forced to basically work remotely and it it works. Now it's hard in some ways and some people didn't do quite right and there's all their challenges that come up and there's isolation's all that stuff but at least like the real world in that case was forced to reckon with a situation that what were the real world had to give for second people had to try something new it worked so i think anytime you can bust a myth or sort of for someone to try. Something they believe is impossible is a good is a good time was a good moment. And that's what we just had happened of the past year or so. I think the other
The Grim Sleeper Serial Killer
"From at least as early as nineteen eighty five to at least as recently as two thousand seven a serial killer lonnie david franklin junior eventually dubbed the grim sleeper roam the streets of south central los angeles where he was born and raised targeting young and particularly vulnerable. Women this killer kidnapped raped beat typically shot his victims with a small twenty five caliber semiautomatic pistol often carried in his shirt pocket. He obsessively took photos of his victims. Both dead and alive both clothed and nude often sexually explicit positions saving them as trophies and keeping them carefully tucked away in the garage behind his home where he worked his youngest victim just fifteen years old not apprehended until two thousand ten. The grim sleeper roam the streets of south central for a quarter of a century incredible. He got away considering how careless he was this murders rather than carefully hiding the remains of victims in some heavily wooded body disposal site. He typically just toss him out of his old pinto an into some urban alley. The bodies are often discovered the next morning after he killed him and he almost always shot his victims. Water were still sitting inside his car. He left so much evidence he took photos of the victim shared them with any of his friends who wanted to see him not the best way to not get caught but no one tipped police off to him and he wasn't caught for so so long. Why how nhi no human involved and h. I was a term thrown around by some lapd officers originally investigating the murders in the mid eighties when the killings began and it was used because the victims were often sex workers or all assumed to be turning tricks on side at least an all or at least nearly all of them addicted to crack cocaine and there were black. The term crackhead was thrown around a lot and hooker. It was like the victims weren't seen as humans reviewed less than human. They were black. Crackhead hookers so who cares. Nhi no human involved so no real investigative priority given but this is not going to be some lapd blame game some apathy from the lapd only partially explains why lonnie was able to keep killing for so long.
Jonathan Capehart Says MAGA Movement Is 'More Worrisome' Than Foreign Terrorists
"To be talked to like adults. There is not a collective more that binds us together and the terrorists apart. There is a lot tearing us apart right now. You want evidence queue up for me Cut. Three. Jim. This is Jonathan Capehart, one of the dumbest guys on television. The only reason we put them in my dopey talking head Olympics because candidly nobody knows who he is. So it doesn't matter anyway. But occasionally he surfaces with some pearl of stupidity, not wisdom. And here's him this weekend on PBS or whatever. Was he on? Jim was a PBS usually, uh, PBS. See, Jim's always great. He actually puts it, I send them clips. I never put any details. He had poor guys to fill them in. So here's Jonathan Capehart on PBS with the ever hapless David Brooks from The New York Times who pretends to be a conservative, you know, shaking his head to an agreement with it, like Bozo the clown. Here's K part but the silliest man on television talking about how Maga Yeah, the Maga move, Make America great again. Moving is definitely more worrisome than the the terrorists. Check this out. I think, um Marga and the domestic terror threat is much more worrisome. Then any foreign threat we could face. And David Brooks is over there with his spectacles on going on. They have bozo the clown. I agree, uh, morons. And again you expect me to? It's going to let let's just throw cliche nonsense out there to an audience. I would have no respect for you at all. There's so much more to get back to 9 12. There's so much more that binds us here. No, there's not. No, there isn't No, there isn't cut the crap. Stop talking to people like they're idiots. Now there isn't anything I share in common with this moron Maga. People are more
House Democrats Set to Propose Corporate Tax Rate of 26.5%
"House. Democrats set to propose a twenty six point. Five percent corporate tax rate hike from twenty one percent. Now the top individual rate would go to thirty nine point six percent the rate on capital gains would jump to twenty five percent that proposal also includes three percentage point sur tax on individual income above five million dollars. The tax hikes would be part of the plan to pay for the democrats budget. Bill between the obamacare surcharge and the five million dollars surcharge. You could be looking at doing the math right. You'd be looking at about forty six percent before you hit state for you at that that top surtax kicks in. I think after five million dollars right
Shaw Singles in 10th, Red Sox Beat White Sox 9-8
"Travis Shaw's RBI single in the tenth inning was the game winner is a red Sox defeated the white Sox in an exciting marathon game ninety eight Boston fell behind early to nothing then scored seven runs in the third only to see the white Sox then scored six unanswered runs of their own the red Sox tied it in the eighth before Shaw wanted in the tenth kind of an up and down a little bit somewhere some nights as a team but overall given what we've gone through the last two weeks I think everybody can can say that we we were doing the best we can and it's definitely it definitely could be much worse shot drove in four runs while Luis Robert had four hits and three RBIs for the white Sox Boston maintains a slim lead in the AL wild card race while the white Sox magic number for winning the central is now eleven David Shuster Chicago

"david." Discussed on The Axe Files with David Axelrod
"Old buddy. My old partner david puff. It's good to see you on the other side of of this election. How you doing first of all it's been four years acts for for us in the country so tell you i. I was confident this time. We're talking monday afternoon. I felt confident heading to the election but I feel you know. I've been waiting for this. You know connie moment for four years and it feels a lot better than i thought it would which is something you know. Yeah there was this sense of relief at least in part half the country in the other half of despondency. Yes which is you know. I wanna talk about that. But we'll get to that because that is a challenge for the country. It's a challenge for biden to challenge for democrats down the line but Talk to me about how you I mean let's. Let's share our thoughts. About how biden. Put this thing together. How did he and could anybody else have. Put it together. In retrospect i'm not sure they could have not of that field. I mean trump ended up producing such strong turnout and holding on and in some cases building on his rural margins. Yeah so it took let us look at pennsylvania. Now let's be as you. And i both know we're not gonna know what really happened in this election for months but his run again to get one hundred percent of counties in you know you have a better picture separate from the exits pennsylvania. I think he added two hundred and sixty thousand votes in those four counties outside of pennsylvania Back eerie when's back. North hampton. county does better in the blue collar areas. You look at milwaukee same thing. I mean or wisconsin you know. He adds to the suburban numbers. Outside of milwaukee madison. But also. Does you know well in those while. Blue collar counties out the walkie so he was a great candidate. I think to potato now my guess is some of that. Suburban vote would have gone to whoever the democratic nominee is. But you look at what he was able to do in these blue collar counties. Which is you know. Overperform clinton five six seven percent and most of those blue collar counties have a decent amount of vote. They're not super small rural can right so and he just looked like the stable safe alternative to trump so They you know geno molly in that team ran a great race. He did what he needed to do. in the to bates thought their advertising was amazing. I really oughta was generally some of the best. We've seen caro's mcdonald's yeah mike. Donald and that team did a great job. So you know you never know But the notion that somehow i mean again if you look at so one thing on would like to say. There's always a focus on the election. Just through the prism of voters of course like activism volunteers organization matters right so You know even if you see African american turnout being appreciably higher in philadelphia. You would've liked to seen at higher but there was so much activism so many of those people in philadelphia were working in the counties outside of philadelphia. But it's hard for me to say that a candidate who couldn't have done this well in the blue collar and sort of outer suburban areas. I don't think they would have won just given. This didn't being particularly close race nationally. In the electoral college may not be close but biden seems like that field. He was the best candidate to do what you needed to do in erie county in scranton in You know racine wisconsin but also put together in arizona. You know his numbers amongst the latino vote. There was quite strong. He still did. Well suburban so He seems to be what the doctor ordered. I think he's probably what the doctor ordered for the country but certainly in this election. Yeah i mean it does. Raise the question moving forward Because you know as strong candidate is bein was in the general election it was it was a chore for him to win the nomination and That's only going to become more. So i suspect that were you know. You're not gonna see another old white guy for Granting nominated by democratic party so Let let's reserve that for a second. You mentioned the minority turnout e. There's no doubt that the suburbs the suburbs shifted. I think in the exit polls in it may turn out to be more Seven points in in biden's direction And they were You know you look at pennsylvania. They were you know when those votes came in from the suburban counties that was That was a a difference maker. he did cut trump's margin. As you mentioned these blue-collar towns. I think he got thirty five percent in the exit polls. We'll see wh- when it all sorts out but thirty five percent of the non college white vote that was seven points higher than hillary clinton did. But you know you look at. He did get incredibly. Trump got more of the african american vote. You know four points more than the exit poll will see how it all when we look at the hard numbers in there are places. My mommy obviously The rio grande valley in texas. Where he did really well with a hispanic voters and You know. I think maybe we're a little too pat about how we assume people are going to vote here And then needs to be looked at as do wipe well it. So well in those relative relative to where he did before even after four years in which he you know he frankly lifted up the premises them right. Well yes so. After every election you know each party were still two party system. We'll see how much longer we are by the way but are two party system so you know parties Over performed performance. Some places so you want to figure out how you maintain that grow and where you had challenges so Even when you win an election like this at the presidential level we struggled obviously at the house level and down ballot. But there's a you know right so there's already been some really great reporting done by journalists who've gone down to the rio grande valley and talk to voters so we've seen the data said the data in the biggest swing in the country for trump was starr county texas right on the border and you see some of the reporting. These tend to be culturally conservative. Voters as we know a lot of work or dependent on the oil industry so that attack may have been more resident there than it was in western pennsylvania Of them are gun. Owners many of them directly or have family members who work in law enforcement And so we have to understand. Miami is different than that dynamic. But you know listen. Al gore lost florida for a lot of reasons but you know at the top list zealand. Gonzales where he then got about half the vote of the cuban community clinton did and so we were able to as you know in twelve. Barely win it on now. You know it's gone back to where it was twenty five years ago And some problems in venezuela community so then but then you see arizona nevada. Obviously there's huge pockets of hispanic vote in places like pennsylvania wisconsin. North carolina will learn more that is devote comes in but it looks like biden. Did what we needed to do there. So obviously this community needs to be treated Quite uniquely depending on and listen..

Any sonic screenplay should start with exterior green rolling hills and then resumed the trailers and opens with the hills him run and took the no music saying. Hey I'm sonic I like running. Go great kind of cinematic diarrheal. I really want to feed it to me. Good job so this opens. Valentine's came out just came romantic. Can we what's GonNa be the top. Oh you know this is a great game. No one's evolution of on the record. Wow you want me to find the release schedule like for like you. What sort of vaguely on up to so we can all look at it? Lower murder rate of came out a week before. Okay that'd be hovering around you also some other things that you have hovering around that won't be hovering around. Are The rhythm section. Their much delayed rhythm section. God knows if that will actually come out to remain. There seems to be some kind of Hansel and Gretel harm movie called gretel in Hansel. That's from Osgood Perkins who I think I've really enjoyed like the black daughter and everything else. He he does like weird like artsy horror. Film could see but this is maybe a little more a little stream. The trailer was pretty good so fearless from it is is Gretel and yes I saw. This looks like it could be like a sleeper. I'm sorry lock it to lock it down. It'll be doing okay. Yeah conversation over doolittle will be the topping. The box office for the fifth week in that will have already. Congress will have already intervened to strike from the record one weekend. They'll be like America can suffer. No long you They could've taken the sonic approach with that like obviously troubled trailer. A year ago would have been an uproar roar. Like do that right now. Can I say I think do little is going to be the film that takes the Sonic phenomenon one step further where they release it in theaters and then a week after it comes out they go sorry. Sorry Back Board. Pull the movie office. I think it'll be. They released in theaters and then people that was a bad movie and university. It'd be like the last doctor. Do they used to do that though like if it didn't do well let's pull it. Let's let's tinker with another couple of weeks right. Heaven's gate famously. Citizens Band was one of those right. Yes this is my prediction bird. Sonic birds and sonacare both probably doing in the forties man. No I think I think if I could man then kingsman and then I think photograph could be a sleeper five. Maybe gentleman in his hanging on. Also the gentlemen and King's Manor to get these movies further apart. You can't have rich Matthew von movies GNARLED. I thought I I thought the kingsman was Jones. Different films released two weeks apart. Element is I think. More of a hard are richie as soon as more of AH. PG Thirteen With that Guy's got refines nearest gentlemen trailer made me laugh more than a trailer. I've seen this year. I'll tell you why off Mike Kingsman also has a response playing the villain who is respite. And he's playing recipe. It's the welcome return of rescue bad. Hell boy one for on a stage. He's been a villain from the. Of course. The the days of the Russian royal family. It was a great villain van but I just I love his sort of his evergreen value as a villain in movies that aren't thibout rescued. Always throw them in there. Like guess. WHO's behind it? All you dirty bastard powers just indefinite fit in anywhere. He claims these mystic. But it's all fraudulent. Does he keep his is peanuts. And a anyway so great to great box office games. Great Discussion About Charlie. I I I recommend people see Truth About Charlie. After having made their way through the rest of Yeah Demis you WanNa Watch charade and and within that context. It's pretty rewarding. Watch even if it is not a fully successful on its own it is confounding. Object really is and that's why I think people were really distress when he's like I've settled on my next project. The May Trian candidate wander. Good good remake it. Oh Jonathan and then it comes out. People were like actually sort of the buzz. Good is a remake them entering candidate original. And then Denzel Schalke. Denzel wins L A Pharma Company or something. I can't. It's going to feel like that man on fire with the same year and that was like before before orbit both. Yeah really liked the show. You didn't sell them. Those moves trilogy that is Manchurian man on fire and Taking a Pelham one-two-three yet which is also good in that movie's pretty good didn't taking Pelham one two three come out after the time out of your time it is later. It's after her What's it called the other? Tony Scott Film. which is the biggest SPEC screenplays time shuttling one. That's isn't that deja-vu time. But that's the the Carl Franklin look. He's Horny. Miami detect a couple years early right. WHO's the one that's quite convoluted? Yeah I think those three movies are like Denzil. Denzil is still insanely handsome. He is remaking like Hollywood thrillers with kind of shabby or more broken men in the lead roles and the thing was always like how does Denzel rough himself up enough so that he has big Matthau energy. And stoppable. Unstoppable is so those late Tony. He's got movies are contest. Isn't I was the only one I haven't seen from what I understand. It's a treatise on filmmaking and film montage. Yeah which I would love to see because I felt felt like man fire was already approaching that in a pretty significant way almo I remember thinking like man fire feels like if Guy Madden got to do a big budget action develop and that's a really good take and I don't know if that holds up guy mad and make marvel to. I don't know about actually want to see it. No I know. That's one of those double edged. Actually want to. We want to waste his time on that or whatever but also man on fire comes right after domino and domino. Everyone was like too much. Tony Johny Stop. It is too much. And then he's like give me one more one more in a man on fire is a lot more with the subtitle. I love that good. So how does death is a cast. Piece his Gemini man where he like insisted on doing the same thing that everyone revolted against the last time except Mana fire was really really successful and very well received. It wasn't that well received but it was very in your view. I remember being rapturous. Some people have said it was really sorted. People stopped by it's kind of a saintly it moves a really long. Yeah it's dark and it's heavy and it's grotesque and he blows guys asked one of the greatest line readings of Greece's artists death and he's about to masterpiece not for me. The greatest line reading is the guy says like I wish and he goes wish one no my wish. I wish that you had more time. And he spaces it out like that better than girl on fearless guys got up on all right David. Thank you so much for coming in. Just come back every couple of weeks. This is great. I I would love to find a reason why precisely your film will come out undecided undisclosed twenty eight hundred fourteenth minds. By this point everyone will have seen the trailer cool. Bill formed an opinion. I'm amphitheater uh-huh I notably get involved with my trailer so I think the trailer will accurately represent the movie call. The any excitement derive their from. We'll be justified. And it's a really weird movie nights. We'll see I'm excited for people to sit. I think the tail is so horny. It's an adaptation of Tell the Green Knight. Yeah so I kind of discovered a lot about myself in this movie and I thought it was going to be a pretty horny movie. It's very like my Catholic chasing us from having grown up. Catholic came through so it is very horny in some regards but like it doesn't go over the top and I was like disappointed with myself. Offer not pushing the boundaries cast such a handsome leading man to raise. I mean looking I mean fans of debitel are going to be very happy I think contest And Yeah I think that they will be even bigger fans of him after this film. Sure any Hornets probably will come from his a in performance is he got locks. You got locked guy's got facial hair. Oh Dream Boat. He is such a dream but was he using the the Moisturizer Ezra technique in his hair. Oh yes do you know. This article came Australia's hair. And that's the secret. I work at fucking got to tell you. It's the movie already opened. I'll tell you something else about that product all right. Let's exciting stuff anyway. I hope I hope the movie Is I hope the trailer is getting people excited to go. See it and hopefully It's up in the trailer and film hopefully coming soon. Maybe it's not. Maybe what events like Seles to apple it's going to be hitting streaming twenty twenty-nine Korea we'll see Thank you for being here. David thank you and thank you for being here David.

Good for the flavors of the Mediterranean. You know what I mean. Oh gear having a nice Italian meal maybe some you know some Pasta Nice Salad yes some olive some of the great thing to have at a restaurant but it's also thing you can pick up at let local locations you know.

"Is completely failed for two hours to sell the idea that he belongs in your that. His office office is littered with literal. Footballs and he's got a suit. That doesn't fit him really well. And he's like some Dork. Who actually would be a spy rather than the kind of like slick James Bondy spy That's pretty appealing. And it's pretty appealing the scenes where it feels like it taps into that where it's like. He's he's almost a little too. Academic studied in trying to be a charming light person. The problem is you don't believe she would ever fall for that. Anyone would ever fall for it. Does does seem ridiculous with all the lines from the original film. Like just them saying I love you. You're like what seriously he feels like the quarterback deciding adding to the high school play. And you're like he's pretty good. Considering dogs I will say when I saw the movie in the two thousand two I liked his performance. A Lot I was I was it was I was full. You know fully sold on what you WanNa believe in the few lover I I still like him. Yeah one of the funniest things completely random like when ted to came out I was like can't wait to see like I really liked head one and my wife was like you never saw it. Yeah I love Ted One and I haven't actually seen you felt you've seen the trailers that made me laugh really like Mark Wahlberg so I was just assume that I saw in loved it so I wrote like a whole review of Ted to based on the premise that I had not seen and had to rediscover Governor House. Yeah did you ever watch at one. I did okay sure. I would argue that Ted to has a pretty great premise. Even if it doesn't know what to do with it talked about Ted and had to too much on this damn head. One has no premise outside of the main hook. It's got no story. It's just a series of things happening for two hours. Essentially the idea of Ted to is does Ted exist as a human being. Does he deserve observe human rights natural creature created by a wish. Should the government able to view him as a sentient being. I think it's a pretty insane gene premise. For me. It kind of goes into stuff you talked about with forty. Yeah our greatest movie star. I like forty. Oh Boy Wow oh I qualified light in not think for key justified the perfect ending that was toy story. Three wow I just like no sequel. I toy story three I saw with the aforementioned John mcgarry here in New York and I was just like shaken to my core are like this is the perfect ending to a franchise franchise willing to willing to go into toy story of ready to Have that franchise reignited like you know what I didn't need it. I mean yeah. Yeah 'cause I I'm honestly twist hyper fan. But I prefer the ending of four which I know I mean a a wild minority. On among the toy story hyper fans yeah also amongst everybody I feel like even the people who like four prefer the ending of three but the four key thing for me is just so robust and I want Disney just started announcing the forties and other movies. That'd be so good. I want them to be like four years. I make another Disney movie four hundred right now. If I make another Disney I will put for. He's going to be in that one. I'm just waiting for them to be like never mind. A heavier dropped out of negotiations. Four key is playing King Triton in the in the little beer bar dem plinking trade as of now how aggressive talk to play. What do you think he keeps wielding? Try and what. What do you think he's GonNa wear? He's not gonNA shirtless. No he'll have some. I can't be but then it's not king trading but you triton is is it's true the chest is really where the authority that's where the performance comes from Can can if the what does Oh. It's it's Kenneth Morris which is so weird. The Nazi from the Producers Association is the Voice of King Triton. But he's the not from the produce anyway Very curious what the two and you're like. Aren't they going to die. His hair white is he going to have a long white wizzard beard. He must right Donna Posey or is it going to go. He might be beardless with white hair. Could he do that. Legally like Aquafina playing subtle. We were talking about it. That's all about life. Founder Jacob. Tremblay your man. The Trim Love them are most consistently bankable doctor sleep putting a dent in. But that's he's is not even advertise. Have you seen this rated by brutal. Seen that movie would've open to eighty. I have to imagine he wanted to like like he was like really murder me. I haven't done that yet. I mean obviously Mike Flanagan has his guys players and so he's just like Jacob Wannabe in this and he's like yeah he. I thirst trapping. Mike Flanagan going murder me. Mike Flanagan. It's I just feel like he's risk-taking actor who's like I want to do something new. I want to be eviscerated by record Ferguson. Choson screaming like a ten minute sequel. That's really quite upsetting fucking tremblay. Yeah I think it's maybe your finest piece of writing ever and maintenance piece of writing ever. I had to be the one who chose what to submit for your Pulitzer Bid I would pick Jacob. Tremblay is reviving the mid the budget studio film with his bare hands after good good boys. Yeah good box office. Yeah the Fandy Newton. What's weird into your Dandy hands? It's handy I'm a Moron Tandy Newton. What I find interesting about this performance is it feels like she is really going for Audrey Hepburn? She is giving. She's the one actor in this movie. Giving a performance that would fit into the classics success rate right whereas everyone else is doing a weird or more modern thing she is very much playing classic Hollywood star and especially in terms of like this weird balancing act charade pulls off which is all these horrible things are happening and they're rolling off their backs right like water like it's like cary grant and Audrey Hepburn constantly. We are witnessing people being murdered and going. Oh and making small like Hollywood banter. It's so deal when she's like. I wouldn't take a bath in there if I were just so charming anyway. Delightful it's very ondo because it is cheese on a different tenor than everyone else. We're although although demis trying to be playful. I feel like he's a little more interested in the stakes of this world rather than charade which treats debt death has like a weird inconvenience Vince. This movie like every time someone dies it lands of proper emotional weight. He is concerned about them being human beings and not like nameless thugs. It's totally true. Although I we did find really weird the Lisa Gay Hamilton dies in a pile of lettuce and tomato theory visually. It was very strange mad about like people should maybe a little more upset about it right. They react the same way everyone else ensure he does but like you feel like demis empathy is like this is a loss of human life of course and and which it is but then Tanu starts crying and it feels so odd at that point in the movie that she is reacting strongly to something. Because you've seen her respond to news that her husband been got murdered with a hippie like Bon mots. She was definitely going to divorce and she was. Just even though. Stephen Dillane is a very charming and handsome man with the Nice thing. They're giving him the Davinci code hair in the thing. That game of thrones which he was on for many years and despise every second of as he's really. Yeah he's always been like it was stupid and I didn't like it. Everyone's like it's like your most famous role now and he's like well. It was awful play. The he was standing my personal favorite game authorize character. I've heard Lobster lobster is the personality of a lobster. He does have a bit of personality but lobster way. We even say David Charlie. Charlie gets more screen time in this than the original and it gets a nice close up but that was it was we did the original. The deaths are all very visceral drowning in a bathtub. Stabbed in the world very hitchcock. Yeah and then no one takes them Siri exactly which is delightful right and this weird where it's like. The deaths are sort of offhand. And but everyone takes them very serious such a sweetheart. He is so fundamentally right. Can you say just upset about Lee. Sure how Ted Levine dies it horribly horribly but like blow darted or poisoning or scared to death by Tim Robbins. So there's an earlier scene where he's doing acupuncture Acupuncture on himself and don't want to comment on the three needles hanging off his legs Sierras he tried to treat a very specific pre existing medical condition or is he a guy is just constantly constantly experimenting Yeah I don't know Yeah Levine's just got such good energy in any movie. He makes like he's just always someone I want. Want to pay attention to. Oh I I feel. It's safe to say this at this point but when I Made ain't them bodies saints I we cast headline in it and for the Carribean par carrying out wasn't ultimately able to do it but for a brief period. I was in touch with them. Yeah and the first communication he ever ever sent to me was an email with video attached. And maybe they can. I might find it But it was just him playing the Banjo for four minutes at the end of it he looked in. The camera was howdy. Even though being in the movie he just made me rock high. I will treasure that forever. Hopefully someday I can. I can work with them. God Wow Pat fucking rules. It's as good as it sounds underselling. You're selling it at a overselling it at all. I'm perhaps underselling we were talking about In silence of the lambs episode. How it's interesting that he's a guy who's never stopped working at things of various sizes? This is and it still feels like he's underused. It still feels like he's so rarely gets the chance to really play to his strengths. Even though he does such a wide array of different different things in different genres with different people and it feels like he. He it's out there right. He's just so fascinating he is somewhat fascinating. What's he what's he done? Recently he was the villain in the last Jurassic world movie. For the first half 'til it becomes an auction thriller in which the auction thrillers others. Unfortunately the part I like more. He's fine in that movie but it's also like a character that's been done in everything so it's just kind of he's like no. Oh but I'm the big game hunter. Who really figured out what I want Muldoon but older yeah? That's a movie. That just sort of happened get hit. Did you see the short film I did. Can I throw take because everyone was asking for trevorrow film what was it called A battle of big rock okay. I kind of liked it. I think it's the best thing trevor as directed it was We shot the green movement finishing now Ireland and and they shot that in Ireland so they basically were Starting Prep while they were shooting. That so we gotta go Andrea Holland is. He's like a random thing the shot in Ireland and but It takes place in California but it was it was pretty cool to go see a big T-REX onstage and have to admit I was like I feel like that's like it's you know the movies are what they are but getting to make one movie with a giant Amtrak T. rex also the one he previously directed like didn't have any animatronic chronic. The is one dinosaur. That's dying so it's nice that like battle. Big Rock has like active animatronic dinosaurs. Yeah I think it's Pretty Moody Richer. It's nice in that it feels like it's it's very focused on what it's doing. It feels very streamlined. I it ratchets tension. Pretty successfully is working with good actor. I think the end is pretty interesting because it feels like the first time. I've clearly seen trevorrow having his own. Total unique take back on the drastic world. That isn't tied to was dark right right. Yes ending like the credits goofy like you know. Here's people interacting with dinosaurs in real life. The film are like a cell phone footage of people having terrifying encounters with dinosaurs. Out in the real. What was that Russian Dash Cam movie movie? Oh yes it's like that entire does that called It's not called the car movie but it's called something movie right. I I wrote move the road movie. It made me kind of excited to see what the next one is. I would so thoroughly love to be proven wrong and go hog fucking wild on the next drastic world and that the short a little bit of Excitement Cou I'm sure I'm going to watch it. Yeah Ding Dong live in fear. Open the door Ta Don Don. Don Don't don't don't don't them melt up this and I thought about.

"Love and podcast. I don't know yeah you can get up right watching the movie looking for possible quotes and and also David talking about this. And we'll talk about this but we got too many David's this episode too many we gotTa David's or as you said these are the days I know they're we're all here All two of them But the lines that stick out to me most in this movie are the lines that are directly lifted for Begum from charade in which are the lines that stick out like a sore thumb because they're clearly out of a different move different screenplay every time they re appropriate a line that I find so charming. Insure aid you're like where the fuck did this come from not fit whatsoever. He the only writer on talking. Okay you want. Can I talk about this. Four writers one Jonathan condemning who often is not credit as a writer on one of his right to is a Steve Schmidt who when I clicked on -PEDIA IT directed me to Steve Schmidt the campaign manager for John McCain. who was the subject of? HBO's Game Change. Yeah the the the the sort of bullet headed guy by woody. Harrelson is not in fact the same chief. Steve Smith kidding me for half a minute. I did this hard pivot to but then pivoted back to politics. Third Screenwriter is. What's Jessica Jessica Bent Bending wrote bringing on young then auto stick it and directed did stick? It was kind of the patron saint of the teen girl. I daughter if that one and then hasn't made a moist and stick it. Stick it by the way. A fucking slaps spirits good missy peregrine movie honks. That's my that's my word. I know I'm just trying to get out but hasn't worked since then. This is the one outlined in her career doesn't fit in with the rest of her. You've yeah it's kind of cool screenwriting credits before this bring bring it on. I believe it's her first grand same year year before. That's it right. And then it's all teen girl movies. Creme de la creme teen girl she had also worked on sex and the city I think is a very low. That was her other big credit. Yes about sex in the city and then the fourth screenwriter on this movie Yes Peter Stone who wrote charade but credited here is Peter Joshua because he hated the movie hated the movie so he used the name that Kari Grant uzes insure raid as his fake name to distance himself from the movie and then this movie flips that fake name so instead of Peter Joshua Joshua repeaters credits being written by Peter Joshua who's not a real person also he's a great writer he wrote you know taking pill one-two-three you wrote a lot of fun seventies sixty seventy s movies and hated this movie and was joined in that sentiment by most of them world. That's too strong because no one saw the fucking pay but yeah most people who saw it thirteen people. Here's an astonishing fact that I just noticed while looking for a quote on the page top trivia fact on truth about Charlie is Mark Clauberg considers this his worst film. Now that might be some snippet from an interview that was done pre the happen as or a happening quite often will dunk happening. But that is you know that's the sentiment how this compares to the happening on the Walberg scale scale. This is a thousand times better much better and I feel like his miscast. Eating is a little less profound. Yes the happening is just the platonic ideal of like like wrong place wrong time for the happening. Also a perfect example of one of my least favorite phenomenons in film which is a actor hates their characters is so Embarrassed by and resentful towards the person. You've been hired to play the fictional character. This feels like he's trying. It's a bit of an odd fit but it's less embarrassing embarrassing than the happening where he feels so actively embarrassed to play a nurse. It's also a role he keeps working. We this is the same character as all the money in the world. Basically it keeps high staff turning to the seven or eight years he comes back to. Can I be the super calm. Intelligent sophisticated man when Walberg is always good with a chip on his shoulder eh status not high status guy completely in control. He always has to prove something to sell their product. So that I can take you through Walberg just up to hear that that brief entries our guest of course this podcast is calling check with Griffin David Griffin I'm David and David Lowry. The other dudes Hashtag David It's a podcast. Alpha Maga Fay's directors who success early on the careers given a series of blank checks. Whatever crazy path and products? They want. This is certainly a crazy passion project at a pretty fucking big check sixty million dollar movie. I think. Sixty million dollars just fifteen years. Yeah Yeah So. This is like an eighty million dollar movie. I mean I think it's also I guess it's that era of Walberg S- probably getting a big cheque right. He's become an Alastair right after implanted the worst list period where people are like the guy can do anything right and then very quickly. They're like no no no no no. He can't the perfect storm. That's what I want to take AAC through that. He really had had some big hit introduction. Yes thank you. Sometimes those checks clarence. Sometimes they bounced me on the phones. Jonathan Demme's called start out making podcast. They were talking Truth About Charlie arguably his biggest bounce certainly financially in relation to its growth I would think so the biggest bounds and we got the Great David Lowery with us back for the second time director and writer mandate gone. Did I screw up the earlier when I said my last name was before we interesting David and left it a little bit of a mystery line reading. I think either one worked. I was happy I probably screwed up even even more by talking about it now definitely. We're keeping that in real keep it all in But it's so excited to have you back on the show. It's really back so much has happened in the past year. That's it's crazy it's been about just over a year. Yeah Yeah because he did sleepy hollow long before. Yeah so I think the last time you saw me I was leaving here go by a suit for the premiere of old man the gun and I talked about it. In the following episode Saddam was incredible it was a little ill-fitting. You can find the pictures now. I mean when I was stuck because you were selling so hard like oh I feel like silly. I didn't pack anything. I'm going to be under dressing to buy something and you were talking about like I'm going to be so. Oh under the gun. Nope I'm trying to find something last minute and then I thought you had a killer. It was a it was a classic of fifteen minute walking out here I thought good fit. Maybe maybe you want tighter usually but it was good. It was good enough. It was good enough. I mean that whole the whole screening you might say was a little loose The Cuna was a little loose. A Little Lewis. It was a loose. I wasn't there. It was freely. I'm trying to find the right way. I describe it. That aren't backhand. It was just mean any yes it was. There were questions that were asked from the audience that we're not heard and then other answers that were given it was just. It was fun it was there. Were both bizarre questions and bizarre aunts loosey-goosey members of the cast their. I think it was about any large contingent of characters Redford gave the exact same answer. I answer twice to two different exactly. That was one of those and it was a long answer and it was almost word for word identical for two different questions. And you're like this is a man who's been doing press ask for decades and that was a week of that. I was like sure I heard that answer so many times in the and like God bless them a he knows exactly what to say even if you were beat so it's that thing the people who are that good at being famous I have noticed really plan and perfectly script if not literally type out but really settle on. This is my answer this talk about these subjects. I will not leave. Press up to chance and so they know like their activation points question. A goes with answers Z.. Exactly and they connect the dots. It was amazing to watch them just reset on a second question versus the rest of us that say things like Oh my God I just say that. Yeah it's it's like he's just totally chill. Yeah Anyway Anyway. I made that Or I made that movie. That movie are more suit. Made another movie another movie working on that right now and now. I'm back in New York. Just hanging out and drop them onto talk to dish Sean. Demi torture dishes outra wiping them. Clean competitively as a refill getting married. Oh Great Hi. It's at this point.

You're you're not catching us out of order. Last time we did sleepy hollow which is at the mid point. We did that. Very early reported with you because You're not a native New Yorker we recorded with you like a month before we recorded any other Burton's so that's what we were still recording. Nancy Meyers and we did the one Burton out of order with you. Good though now. Psychologically you're catching us at this exact point really be perfect we'd been steeped and we've been going largely in order and So it makes this movie movie all the more bizarre really does it is so funny. I I know you're you're chomping at the bit to get that that Walberg out. No I know but it is so funny. How his nineties are like such a weird or worse? It's their sparse there. Obviously so many documentaries and little things in between but his three narrative fictional fictional films in the nineties are weirdly of peace where they're like the most somber straight face demi like he stepped away from the playful thing in terms of energy and its like him making like three dramas you know and there are a little they shift a little. What kind of drama they are? But like it's him using all the style that he developed in comedy and applying lying it to the dramatic studio film with big movie stars and you know and the like and then the two thousand become him being like how do I bring that weird demi he stuff back but also like smuggle it into remakes of classic Hollywood films interesting to to discover where Demi came from before that is because like I certainly became aware of them of him with silence of the lambs and Philadelphia. That was like when I was like eleven twelve twelve thirteen and so I was like okay. This is a prestige filmmaker who wins Oscars seemed like the most classically Oscar exactly. And that's just all I knew about him still will like getting too. I think most people like my generation our generation probably were like. Oh Paul Thomas and love this guy. I guess we should check out this early stuff because you you go like sounds lambs. Bizarre Oscar heavyweight Philadelphia almost gets reduced to the basic idea of an Oscar beatty movie be and then believe it because it's like people think of it as a temp wouldn't it's not. It's not thanks film. Did you do the merchandise spotlight Philadelphia. Oh my God no lowry. What's the march? Yeah but David yes what is your Demi what is your Demi experience. What's your how do you come to him? What do you think of him now? I feel like in whenever the lamps came out on the cover of Newsweek. And that was. My parents scribe Newsweek. So I remember. I think I've talked about this. Last last time I discovered sundance and Tim Burton was through my parents. Newsweek subscription in any case there was a cover story about silence of the lambs the violence in media that also included an image of Laura Palmer wrapped in plastic sound. Lambs was definitely one of those like is this has Hollywood. Finally Yeah Right and the Lower Palmer image which I assume just through the magazine freaked me out so badly that I had my parents like throw that magazine awakes. Just really scared me you cursed by. I assume that that image was in silence of the lambs so I finally several years later watch silence of the lambs. I was just like dreading that moment. When you finally watch twin peaks that you start screaming it was like Oh wait? That's the head like he's such an indelible image that you know you mean the one. That's directly overhead. Yeah just yeah and I think my parents had a very. They're very strict about movies. We're allowed to see and so I didn't see the film until high school teacher. Sure but I did read the book so I read. Oh I read Red Dragon Really Love both those folks. I got to Hannibal after you've seen the movie it was it was Larry. Johnson did the same thing producer Rachel talk and shed shed on tires migrate all Tommy. H for those. If you couldn't hear Rachel said she threw her copy of Hannibal across the room and end like right. Yeah at the end out of out of disgust. where the story went but not? Yeah Oh yeah no. It sounds like what most people did. Yes people were upset. Yeah it's real bad. I invested vested so much time in those books and they were good until the end. Animals was the Hannibal Lecter. Saga Your Harry Potter. Rachel were you the person I can't wait to see what happens. Book Free Well. I wasn't expecting that I read the real. What the fuck is that? What he decided to do? I appreciate you know Straw. I mean it's a different than it is different. They might expect about. Okay appreciate that choice. Swing swing that. In that I hated the most was. There's a line that's something like it turned out that Gloria just really uptight because she needed some good Dick. That's not good the welcoming for years talk. Can I throw out a high tech quickly. I think that's bad. Good Dick is just not ever really going to be the everglades. It lands smoothly addiction..
"david." Discussed on The Axe Files with David Axelrod
"The state of the Union still mired in election night or caucus night from Iowa. Three days later car lot to talk about normally I would start with your story and yours is a really interesting story. That helps inform unique perspective but given the events of the last few days. I think we'd better start there so we are blurry but I hope we're clear out as well. Well give me your clear eyed analysis of what you watched last tonight and in the state of the Union both the president's speech and all of the Atmospherics around the president's speech was everyone has disgusted disgusted but was highly partisan he again and again and again went back to push off the top of the Obama record and say you know unlike Obama. We've we've done such by the way. What do you think he just has? Just two three people in the World Bama's one of them. Hillary Clinton is another one Just get under under skin. And he I I think it's he's obsessed by that and he's obsessed about being superior to them. I mean look up to them being more you know he wanted. He was bragging about at this nanny other last night as if the world started the new I became president in terms of the overall arc of the speech. The fundamental the ideas beach was the great American comeback and. I do think that that is really open to question for a lot of Americans you know you. You and David are very accustomed looking at the right track wrong track polls come out. I've been taken for last fifteen years or so. Is the country on the right track are on the wrong track. Going into last night's speech we were fifty five percent wrong track thirty nine percent right dry. That's just not a country that says this has been a great comeback back having said all that. Although it's been on on a little bit on the upswing and definitely on the upswing and he did have some things he could brag about the very low unemployment rate among African. Americans and Hispanics are things. He can't brag about But I thought when it's all said and done you take all the Trumpian things that we find troublesome and put to one side. He emerged last night speech in the strongest position of his presidency. Last last night was I thought thected as a speech and telling people. I didn't know all those things that had changed. And whether you like him or don't like him you have to concede a lot of things have changed and some of the better mostly in the economic realm and whether it does he deserve credit for that. Well you and and I know that the president doesn't wage wave a magic wand and determine economic outcomes in the country but one time to going bad the president gets to blame and when times going one. Good thing about the thing about the great American comeback is first of all it requires that you depict everything before you in the most negative terms caller. This as you will for the fact that I was there for part of it but I do remember arriving the White House in the middle of an economic crisis unemployment a peaked. At ten point two percent it was four point seven when Obama left office and trump is taking it to three point five so took it down from ten point two to four point seven and trump another another one point two as presidents do shooting claims some credit for that the last three years of the Obama presidency create more jobs in the first three years of the trump presidency. Let's see so but let's say it began because in in the last ends time that Donald Trump has been president if you take the month to month average number the job increases it's lower than similar period of time under Barack Obama last three for sure. Yeah Agendas Person Fair person would say starting with Obama. Bama we've built on that narrative requires this Something else but I have to say from his standpoint and given his strategy strategy and I'm interested in your view on this because you are someone who crafted presidential speeches you worked for four presidents. Would we'll get to that. It was pretty effective. I thought from his for for what he was trying to agree with you. I thought it was a strong speech. I thought he did make. The ritualistic appeals to the base ace. But he added some things last night. He talked far more frequently about African Americans about working families. I thought the outreach to the African American community was overdone so obvious what was going on. Almost everybody introduced in the gallery were minorities parties scholarship to the young woman There was a reality show element to it But you know that's a flare right but I thought I thought it would be planning for going into the general election. Seems to me a good one. Strong Wind Ebi. It underscored the Democrats are going to have to really work like hell to witness. This is not going to be getting out. Realization is is is is is striking getting a lot of people and and part of it is that I think that trump's grasp of the modern media environment right is not agree is not greatly appreciate it. There was a lot of there. Were some schlocky moments last night but I bet that they played and I think the outreach to minorities and women it was interesting question. You think he's reaching out to the African American community and minorities as a way to get votes in those in those communities one of these or by doing that make people in suburbs women in. That's yeah that's what I think. I think that one of the things that makes women uncomfortable with trump and he's got a huge huge gender. Gap is divisiveness right. And I think that this is a bank shot for him. I don't think he I mean maybe they think they can make big inroads in the African American community I do. I've seen no evidence of I think this was a bank shot to kind of connote tolerance in a speech that in many ways was as intolerant. Intolerant is adequate So you know that. That's that's how I different grace notes for different groups. Yeah Yeah Grace. Note says has as graceful as he can manage there. Were a couple of things that sort of struck me. And then I wanNA talk about the interaction with Nancy. Pelosi and the institutional regional strain were living under the presentation of the Medal of freedom to rush limbaugh. How did you read that because rush? LIMBAUGH's dying of Yardley and that is for him and his family tragic thing but he also is. He's the he's the he's the PA. Theo Sus of division in right country entry. How did you read that moment? As one of the oddest moments I can remember presidential days of the Union and rush limbaugh beaten beaten up on me for a long long time. You're not in an exclusive club and it's a very big club and so I've I've never been a favorite of mine but I I don't know David I something I can manage dying. I got him soon. I think one should be generous. What about the interaction with Pelosi? President refuse to shake her hand ripped up his speech at the end right. She did not afford him. The usual Introduction right you know the SNUB personnel. Wasn't there I mean. He is not fair to start with and then she's snubbed him back. What does that portend? I have to worry that major going to have a year. That's entirely built around the elections and not around around trying to get some things done they as you as you know speaker. Pelosi hasn't spoken to Donald Trump since October. Three and a half months or so thanks. She went after after they had a confrontation his in neuro at the White House. I can't remember a time when any president and a speaker was estranged. If you go back to Ronald Reagan as a conservative modern president for versus tip. O'Neill he'll speaker of the house one of the most liberal and they got along very very well you remember that that story when the they got the get social security done together discovery form and he got tax reformed under major major bipartisan legislation and they developed affection. Between each other's that story about tip turned I think seventy Reagan had a birthday party for him into White House and invited friends down for lunch at the end of the lunch break and got up and he'd written out this little dog role as he liked to do and he said tip if I had a ticket to heaven and you didn't have one too. Well I'd give my ticket back and go to hell with you. uh-huh we miss that. And I think that was the spirit in which the city was governed and a nation governed and and. I think this frosty relationship between the president. The president trump and Speaker Pelosi is sad. Each guest's has has reason to have intense dislike for the other but to openly snubbing. Her as he did when she held her hand out shake hands and then and then she took her revenge as the night went on and got up and tore tore for that speech. At part you have to say that's it's certainly says sends out every message you need. These folks don't get along and they're not going to get much together it's GonNa be. It's GonNa be a very very rough election. I think that is a certainty. The question is what. What if trump wins reelection and returned? What the next four years like? Because I you know that is if you were to map out the likeliest scenarios that certainly is a high up scenario that the two of them. You know we'll be back. I think the sober analysis analysis of this Presidential races any any income. President is you know has a better than even chance of being reelected right and a president and a good economy even better than that. What's remarkable about today? Is that despite all of that. Trump is not a sure thing but but he certainly at least even money to come back and what is important to me is i. I think he was in good shape for reelection two three weeks ago. No but I think he's in stronger shape today. He was just a few which is remarkable because as we sit here today the Senate is going to acquit him with several Republican senators standing up and giving CYA speeches about how they. They're sorry did what he did that. It wouldn't be what they would do. It was unfortunate. It was wrong wrong. It was but not in peachable but he will. Those remarks will be cast aside and he will claim vindication and he has strengthened his base. Jason Gallup poll came out this week. Ninety four percent of Republicans give him a favorable rating and a number of people who are independent has gone up to forty forty two. Then a Gallup is now has him at forty nine percent you know. He's never the highest he's ever been the highest ever been. Never Been Fifty member broken. I present right. Who's who's he's never broken fifty the contrast with of Iowa and chaos an Iowa versus this extremely? Well put together speech. Even I know you and I might not have liked parts of it. It was well put together speech and it was very a lot of thought went into the people in a balcony. I thought there are way too many just clear earlier that they're taking a pretty sophisticated view toward how to get from your victory in November and the Democrats are still struggling to find a candidate. Now that's another story for we left. I wanted to raise the question. What really struck me last night? was that when it came to domestic policy in fact often sounded like a liberal president. He had he wanted this program for this group or another group and here. I'M GONNA put money here. He was adding things on. We're very expensive spending a lot of money. And he not once spoke about deficit and the deficits have doubled under he. We're trying dollars dollars a year. That's the legacy we're leaving so part of what's happening here is. He's Borrowing One hal out of money to pay for reelection campaign with through federal funding ending for a great number of program. We've seen this before the democratic precedents. But I can't remember Republican president. Doing quite this what. You probably can't remember Republican president quite like him. A lot of Republican dogmas have been tossed aside on trade rain on deficits and spending trump has his own unique brand of. He has his own unique philosophies such as it is I think a lot of is intuitive and market driven and what the market tells him is to be a cultural warrior rear end to be liberal economics in some ways I mean. His tax cut was very much a in my view. A Republican tax cuts yes Corporate tax cuts but on the spending side you know his view is give people try and throw things at people they want and as he said to someone quoted in a report when deficits raise them he said..

I wanted it to go exactly like this when they when they announced the trip degrees earlier this year I felt the vapors much the same way very excited so you're saying that right. Now you feel like bizarro switch exactly you're saying like like like like this switch switch park is there other stuff in your notes means yeah. I'm sorry this is the most ran away episode. We've done in the last four days the when she says just go find some field standard it. It's a sick burn yeah. Yes like burn kind of an Old Lady said that's you. You would be destroyed well. It's fun saying like a go sit on yeah. One of my favorite insult is a good so what else is counsel for. I don't know the second half I agree with you that this summer where she's like. Oh No I put out counselor and there's all that to deal with right and like of course she put out cow suffer the last yeah yeah the last thing I wanted this movie at the hour mark is plot right. That's the thing that you're right. You're right. It is a lot more how it feels like you know some of the other music movies we'll have like a lot of setup in the first half and then let you just kind of go transcend it in the second yeah and this is the opposite which grant all all right some anyway anyway. This is what's going on here right and there's that sequence where she sees how becoming magical like catching calver. That's just sort of happens. It's it's one of the four different ending right exactly right now. No I guess it's not a good individual swept up whiteness pink. The character designers phenomenal looks. I looked a little yeah I I think he's very hands counsel for he's a he's a little leads on the law but he is like a low flame for Brooklyn. He has polio eyeballs. He's got those like white round shifty things and okay. We don't need to make David Anymore horny than you. Already is AH yeah yeah. I don't know just like a little. I don't know I like all that hot if you oh oh boy I I do like that. She kisses turnip head and he's like I've been in my own movie the whole time and she's like okay. I talked. I know any other thing that happens happens on this movie Dixon's movie. It's just that like it does in retrospect feel like he was fine tuning some things in gearing up for the masterworks works to come but and I really would have loved to see him maybe get ahead of that and give it more in the direction of getting into like how in the battle of his soul and his difficult struggle he hasn't coming back to human form and not have that lost in of the Mumbo jumbo that goes on around him but I do feel like the crucial line in the second movie anyways when he says that all this magic is just to keep everyone away. I can't stand how scared I am which if anything feels like like a animator who lives in their hut away from all life and hates interacting with the public and just chain smoke all day long and has created more joy than like any any other artists in the twentieth century and beyond it feels like Miyazaki putting his voice into into him that line resonated with me I think as Misaki increasingly introspective that line was a hint of things to come right. It's funny that we'll talk about when rises but right what movie incredible but like this is the antiwar movie and not the wind rights yeah well when rises as we'll get into the the anti pro right there was definitely an argument that was levied against it so yeah but I yeah I mean this movie is it was derided headed for being sort of very on the knows about message but I think that it's it's not just like war is bad. I mean it's really for me talking about what we lose by giving giving over to the impulse of like how difficult it is to extract yourself in the bits of your soul from that experience and just go back to normal and and the delusion that you can sort of pivot towards conflict then you're back to normalcy and still be whole and treat other people with the same sort of selflessness tennis. That's Ohio is does. I think that that is that's a sally message in the movie that survives the borderline disastrous second half. I think that's a great take I think that is what works in this film. I do just like I prefer talking about that. Being the takeaway rather than watch forty minutes of it start to to feel repetitive tactic in a way that Miyazaki movies don't right because the thing that is really joyful. I've found discovering these movies is like these are movies. Were like every every ten minutes. The movie can totally change and its messaging can stay so sort of like open in terms of the way so thoroughly exploring all of its themes to watch them for like forty minutes. Is You know even if it's doing so intelligently just showing you that war is really bad and the people who do it are operating out of like you know human weakness is is just a little frustrating for me and it does it. Does Kinda just end a little damp point yeah fine. Although you must like that sophie kisses literally everybody yeah like all the kiss yeah. I'm guessing boy right. He's a good movie. Kissing you are up right now saying I'm always horned up yeah but not matrix four horns shirt off and he's like spinning hanging around his whipping it around. What was the movie you saw a good kissing ageless Wallin hottest movie was the kissing and good boy was kissing party the whole movie? That's Oh yeah that's right but kissing party yeah good point. I was making a joke should say the kissing and good boys is good. I'm aware I I just saying like my whole thing. The whole time I was like if the girls don't eventually become friends with them out on this movie right and so when the girls come home and they're like like you kids will figure it out. I was like thank you thank you. That's what I was looking for. I got my scene and then they asked him to sing any things and it's sweet. There's some there's some good stuff. Yeah I mean I just saw something with really good. It's okay it's okay. I don't think it's very it's enjoyable enough to Notting Hill. He's bringing up Notting Hill. He's just a boy sitting in front of a girl getting it wrong. She's just a girl sitting in front of a boy deliver and then the kiss and I think it's good kissing. What was the good kids from? You saw a new look in my letterbox. AM whatever happened to raise funds. He's became like a great great British dramatic actor. of course was the lizard he was but he in Britain he's in like you know plays and TV miniseries and so he's like a great feel like animus was supposed to be like a big comeback for him man. Am I inventing the fact that he had a problem with alcohol. He has definitely had problems with drugs. He's WanNa he dated. When I worked at people magazine he was dating Sienna Miller Right Kate Moss despised? CNN Miller and I had to cut what I mean. I had to talk about all the interest warfare that was going on in their like social set. Yeah we're like chaos trying to one up. CNN Miller's birthday gift therese. He's if there was all kinds of like it was kind of funny to think like it's like at the center of the hottest risk gossip were like he was doing the comic comecon panel for Spiderman and much like high as Miyazaki he would not stop a chain smoking assure comecon he I did not seem happy to be right. They asked him to stop smoking during the panel and I believe he got into a fistfight with the security guard was arrested great. I will say the moment was Richard of lenient fire. Oh yeah well. There's there's some which be out at the time but I one day on this or some other podcasts gas. I can do a dramatic reading of the text messages. David Olson sent me after seeing portrait of a lady on fire back where we both agreed that it is the movie movie she I mean she's one of my a favorite living filmmakers and the fact that she has made a movie that now everyone thinks is like stone cold mass when I'm already this and the tank for her is thrilling willing to me. I was shaking for like two days but we'll see someone tops up. Ben Is giving me the look where it's like. Don't talk about the moment you realize that response one of Britain's great dramatic actors talk about but then you just pointed to get permission to do that once I did back away asking okay. There's a moment at the end. The film called Nottingham where Hugh Grant has assembled transit family doesn't know all his fucking boozy Fran all his boozy ruined that neighborhood offer the this is the moment actor and he's giving the lowdown of what happened.

It's like a book that he was like I sign off in the general sense on our company acquiring this because they're elements that are here that casselman right right. I have no interest in making this myself so then once he comes aboard. It's like okay. What do I want to say that I can like shoehorn? He looks at the book and he's like okay. There could be a plane in here and there and there could be some cool lookin' star wars planes like one man planes flying in formation in the background of this shot and I I do things like the way that he uses the planning war and stuff about beauty and how like I see no point in living. If I can't be beautiful it it does feel like a lighter. Take building up to an again. We can only go so far into this. the wind rises where the the the the beauty of these things things is offset by the destructive power and the people who enable them also sort of have to live with the cost of producing them and the the beauty that they bring into the world is very much the essence and so how sort of cartoonish emo version of that idea. I just realized what I want me as do I want him to start a youtube channel where he reviews planes. I wanted wanting to ride a plane with me. Maybe calm me down sure oh probably he would make you appreciate the plane. He looked talking about the majesty defying. I just feel like I don't hear about plane nerds. It's in the same way that you hear about other types of vehicle nerd right and I'd love to see like music you like trying out. New Airline models like this plane was animators in airplanes with me as ocoee yeah that sounds great animators drinking tea in airplanes. They'd be smoking cigarettes animators cigarettes. You ought airplanes surveys yeah right but I do like the idea that you could just like if you're nervous flyer you could request him and at the gate they would just give me as ocoee. It's an option to kosher meal. Sake on your flying right. Yes just be like Oh yes that sound is just the rudder going going like this and is it the barbarity of flight doing destructive destruction to the environment. Do you feel like if he explained like the mechanisms of the plane to you. It would calm down Dave. Thanks so usually because my flying I have tried to like get to know like what planes are doing. So that like noises don't alarm. He loved the cars you know after the plane soon I don't like trains and automobiles but what about planes Mike Yeah could take her leap like sub seems like a fully horrifying concept haven't been in a like a like a metal like What are they coffin there? You go that's underwater right and you can't leave you love sub sandwich though a love they never make movies about how like good things are in a sub in oh you mean like movies usually about like being in a sub- it's tough and if one thing goes wrong like oh that's up. Mike called the planes in movies and like characters will get on a plane. Take off in the land safely somewhere. They'll go about their business. Propose marriage on a plane sure harming sure but but in a sub- it's usually like something's GonNa go wrong. Yes all right well. Here's a question just true. What about downstairs? It's up on us. Oh Yes sir. Do things go wrong in down periscope Is that the one with Kelsey grammer yeah. I'll remember yeah I think so right. I think they're like a rag tag group of guys and then something goes wrong.

"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 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.

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.

You didn't definitely didn't resist this series. It took us three and a half years to get to. We have other things to do things that I prioritize lower than this. It of course, called pod word scissor cast. I'm just this one's in your hands. The whole Burton caboodle. I don't even I'm happy. We're doing it got David Skyping in we're recording this one a while in advance where we're technically in the middle of our Nancy's. Sure. We have very special guest today. We wanted to give them the studio while he was around. So Meesane Padres scissor cast right now is thrown down the gauntlet the title this. The first time we didn't even confirm between the two. This is what this whole mini series is going to be you go. And if you wanna do that. That's fun, right. Sure. Go for it. Yeah.

Like, he's done things. Like, Charlie talk factory. Also wanna land miss peregrine where it's like Sweeney. Todd. These are other properties. It's not really a burden writing his titles.

You're the rare fan that we get these days who still is hooked with the Star Wars the initial gambit often people jump on later. No. That was it. I mean, I was it was you know, what I listen to while building my midlife crisis. Like, I said, okay. So I got a couple of questions. I will. I mean, it does seem to be these days people get into the new episodes. And then once they're deep in. Maybe they go back to. The falcon you're building. This was the ultimate. Yeah. Yeah. It can talk shop when he wanted to buy me. No. This was a thing. David had said he kinda wanted the LEGO falcon from solo. That's that's that's no good. Right. Which I I wasn't specifically demand. I just saw it on sale. And I was like oh look this on sale. Like, there's like we gotta get these things out of the show. No one wants you saw them announce it sure you quoted the tweet with the announcement and said I want it. Sure. Sure. So then I said because I'm trying to poison. David just want me to own toys.

"The amount we would get a two dollar and thirty five cent discount each day. And I would sneak into the cafeteria before most kids were there or after my kids were there. So they didn't see me using this little kind of Mark of financial aid for the most part. It was a fantastic experience the quality education. There was phenomenal. I'm still close to some of my teachers and. By the time. I kind of outgrew, my adults and insecurity. It was it was hugely fun to be at school with my dad. I mean when I was thirteen I wouldn't go do it. But when I was sixty and seventy nine of free period. Why go hang out with my dad? I know a lot of sixteen seventeen year olds who would not react that way. Probably a testament to my dad more than me. Yeah. I'm I'm asking you this. This is a complete shot in the dark. But is that where David Brooks went as well? No, a lot of a lot David because he you know, he he, and I sort of a parallel has, but he lived in Stuyvesant town where I grew up for short time. And then, but then he went to private school and not the David's in my offices are next to each other. But I think he grew up in in New Jersey or Long Island. He did not he did not go to school in New York. Horace Mann has lots of of writers over the years who've gone there Anthony Lewis, my predecessor on the op-ed page went there, lots of other people, but not damn David came out here to the university of Chicago, actually, college, right? Yeah. Yeah. The. Part of the history of your parents what they were activists. They were antiwar activists. They were civil rights activists so much so that they appear where they pick the family up and went to Boston to too because Boston was that grand zero for the anti busing movement. And there was quite a bit of stress. There would tell me about that. So my parents met they were both involved in the anti Vietnam war movement. And actually they met in nineteen sixty seven because a friend of my dad, my dad said friend of his we gotta find someplace to watch the World Series. This is before everyone at TV's and my dad's friends had him while, you know, I know a woman who has a TV we can pretend we're stopping by say hi and watch game one of the World Series, which was Red Sox cart ride. Yeah. Fast world great World Series. Of course, the Red Sox lost as they always did. And until the last fifteen years, and then that woman had a friend over who is my mom. And so to some extent the Red Sox, thanks for my existence, and you became a Red Sox fan this. This is. Where I was going. This is I don't I can't describe how peculiar it is that a guy who grew up in New York, I know is a Red Sox fan, and it wasn't as peculiar it was miserable. Right. Growing up as a Red Sox fan in New York through the eighties when they lost that horrible World Series to the Mets even all the way up to two thousand and three with the Erin Boone home run. But so yes, as you said, we lived in New York, and then a my dad really remained quite active in these kind of leftist movements, even after the Vietnam war. And so he went up to Boston to be part of the movement, basically protecting the anti-racist movement to protect the African American kids who were getting bused to white communities, which was enormously. Controversial, right? And and not conducted that well by the government, right? It's a hugely complicated issue. So we moved up to Boston in seventy five and lived there for six years. But that was from when I was two eight, and that's sort of where I fell in love. Yeah. So you you there's a a confluence here between your love of baseball. And the fact that you became a math major.
