A highlight from Hugh talks "Filthy Rich Politicians" with Matt Lewis
"Welcome America back using a song from the boss because it's quoted in this brand new book. Matt Lewis, filthy rich politicians. Matt Lewis joins us now. Good morning, Matt. How are you? Hey Hugh, I'm doing amazing. Good to see you. Good to see you. It's been a long time. First time I met Matt was in 2008 at the Texas Republican State Convention. I don't know if you remember back that far, Matt, but you're that old. I do, you took us out to dinner and paid. I remember that really well. All right, well, Matt, this is a fine book. Congratulations. I want to begin though. Thank you very much. And Hugh, I was a young staffer at townhall .com at the time. And that's why you paid. your I appreciate mentorship of young conservatives. I try, I try. And this is a very good book. We agree on about 75%. We disagree on some and we'll get to that. But I want to start with, you know, you wrote the best article or book on grifting by PACs, by super PACs. And you know, one of the things Jack Smith is investigating is illegal fundraising by the Donald Trump stay in office effort. Do you find it unusual that the first person to get prosecuted for that is the former president? Oh, I think it's, you know, I think it's one of those things where the nail that stands up gets hammered down. What's the old proverb about that? You know, I think it's a combination of factors, but Donald Trump has put himself in the line of fire, so to speak, legally. So not - I'm just so disturbed by that because based on your first book, I don't think I've ever received an honest fundraising appeal. I mean, you, especially the ones that came up during the Tea Party movement, didn't you write that original story on the Tea Party movement with just a giant grift? Yeah, no, I wrote, so I wrote an op -ed for the Wall Street Journal about this. And part of it ended up also being in my book as well, my old book, Too Dump to Fail. But yeah, this was a real problem. In fact, there were candidates running, I'm sorry, candidates who weren't even running for office, had no plans to run for office, and someone would start a super PAC like Draft Condi Rice, and somebody would raise millions of dollars, and most of it would go in their own pocket. I it's think scam PACs was the term - That's your term, scam PACs. And I appreciate that, and I tell everyone about it all the time. Never give a dollar to a PAC, never. It's lining the pockets of a crooked person. So Matt, let's get to filthy rich politicians. First of all, I did not know you grew up in Maryland. I did not know you had moved to West Virginia. So are you gonna support Jim Justice or Joe Manchin in the Senate race, Matt Lewis? What do you live with? I'm for Jim Justice mainly because he has this amazing bulldog named Baby Dog. And I literally live in a state when during the COVID pandemic, in order to get West Virginians vaccinated, which by the way, Jim Justice was a leading governor early on pushing vaccinations, in order to get West Virginians vaccinated, we had a lottery where Baby Dog would pick the winner and you could win a gun or a truck. And so based on that alone, Jim Justice has earned my vote. Well, Baby Dog has been on this show. And Baby Dog, I don't know how old Baby Dog is, or if it's like the Georgia Bulldog and it's like Baby Dog 4, but Baby Dog is a heck of a campaign operator. Let's start with a name of a book I've never seen before. Dig Your Well Before You're Thirsty. This is a big book in your life. I wrote an advice book once called In But Not Of. Is this book still, you're the one you recommend, Dig Your Well Before You're Thirsty. Does it still work? It's been decades, I assume, since you read it. Absolutely. So it's by a guy named Harvey McKay. And he was, believe it or not, in the envelope business, as I recall. I think he had another book called Pushing the Envelope. He had another book called How to Swim with the Sharks and Not Get Eaten. And he literally wrote this book, it's called Dig Your Well Before You're Thirsty, the only networking book you'll ever need. And me coming from a very rural background, the son of a prison guard, my dad was a correctional officer in Hagerstown, Maryland for 30 years. I honestly had no idea the concept of networking. I mean, even the concept of like, let's make friends with people and when you have a book that comes out, maybe you email them and they'll have you on the radio show. Like the way that the world works for 99 % of successful people, I literally had no concept of that. No one ever taught me, no one ever taught me like, literally set me down and had a conversation with me about it and I also never observed it in practice. And so at the age of 25 or 26, I read this book and it actually changed my life. And it still works? You think it would still work today? Absolutely. Oh, absolutely. I mean, because this is based on relationships. Remember in Jerry Maguire, his mentor, is it Dickey, whatever, says to you, the key to this business is personal relationships. You can't sell anybody if you don't love everybody. Like that will work forever. It doesn't matter if there's technology or no technology. And by the way, this is not a manipulative thing. That's the thing I loved about this book is that Harvey McKay was not advising, let's manipulate people. It was about building relationships and friendships with people that are reciprocal and mutually beneficial and I'm a fan. Yeah, there are three kinds of friendship according to Aristotle. The first, the friendship of utility. There's nothing wrong with it. It doesn't bring pleasure. The second kind of friendship or wisdom, the third kind of friendship, but it is necessary. So I'm glad to plug that book. Now on money, your general theory is Tug McGraw quote. I like it, I love it, I want more of it. I am with you too, but the best way to do that is to work three jobs for 50 years. You're not gonna get rich quick in America. You have to work three jobs for 50 years and you'll be comfortable. You have got nothing against money. I want to be clear at the beginning of that. You're not an anti -capitalist. That's exactly right and I tried to go out of my way to really stress that. My wife is a Republican political fundraiser for conservative candidates and I'm somebody who's here hawking a book desperately, trying to get people to go to Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books -A -Million, wherever fine books are sold and buy filthy rich politicians. So I am a capitalist, I am a entrepreneurial, I love America and I want to become filthy rich. But I also, I will say, Hugh, I don't think money's the root of all evil. I do think the love of money is the root of all evil. So obviously we have to keep things in perspective and not become greedy. And honestly, I think that's the problem with our politicians is that a lot of them, they're disordered. Their priority is not we the people, it's actually cashing in. That to me is the problem. And you make a good argument that a number of people are driven by that. Let's start with our common area of most agreement. I believe with you and you make a good case, stock trading, active stock trading by members of Congress should be illegal. You make that argument at length, Nancy Pelosi is exhibit number one, but there are a lot of offenders. Why do you think that? I agree with you, I can parrot your argument, but you make your argument. Why should stock trading be illegal by members of Congress? Well, first let me say, I don't wanna take credit for this development, but just today, this morning, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that Senators Josh Hawley and Kirsten Gillibrand are about to propose a law that would do exactly what I'm calling for, which is banning members of Congress and their families from betting on stock market. And the reason for this, Hugh, is a couple reasons. Number one, it really looks like several prominent members of Congress are engaging in insider trading. In other words, and I can go chapter and verse on this if you want, but we don't have to get too in the weeds, but very clearly, if you look in the book, it looks like members, prominent members of Congress are using inside information that they have from their jobs in Congress to make money to profit on the stock market. And also, I think even more disturbing, during times of crisis or great change, they're using their information to mitigate the losses, to dump stock before something bad happens. They have information you and I as citizens do not have. So I think whether they're really, whether they're engaging in insider trading or whether it just looks like it, either way, it is eroding trust in liberal democracy, in our institutions, and in our lawmakers. Yeah, if we go back to the market crisis of 2008, my dear friend, John Campbell, one of the most ethical men I know, a car dealer, by the way, who came to Congress with a lot of money told me, because Matt has some harsh words for car dealers where I disagree with him, but we'll come back to that, but John is very, very ethical. I've gone to church with him forever. I know him very, very well, and he's a good car dealer and an honest man. He's out of the business now. But he told me about a briefing he got during the financial crisis. He didn't trade stocks. He would never do that. But if you had been in that briefing, you would have dumped every financial stock, and apparently some people did. They should go to jail, but that's not technically insider information. Right, so first of all, it hasn't even been illegal for Congress to engage in inside trading until 2012. That's when Congress passed the Stock Act, and now it is illegal for them to do it. However, I guess my argument is, and I go back to Martha Stewart, you know? I mean, what would you do if someone called you up, let's say someone called me up and said, hey, Matt, you know that stock that you've got your entire retirement in right now? They're gonna announce tomorrow that that super drug doesn't really work. So just a heads up. Tomorrow it's gonna come out that that drug that you've invested your entire life savings in is not effective, and it's hurting people, actually. What would I do? You'd kinda be a fool if you didn't dump the stock, right? You'd be an idiot. And so I think just as the normal course of work of a member of Congress, you're going to be privy to information that average members, average citizens do not have. And so the best way, and it's impossible to police this, how do we know for certain whether Senator Richard Burr knew COVID was going to be so bad because he's the chairman of the Intel Committee, or maybe he just reads a lot of newspapers and follows the story more closely than most Americans. It's impossible to sort of parse things like that. So the simplest way to solve this problem is to ban members of Congress from trading in the stock market. You can still own mutual funds. And Matt Lewis and I are gonna continue talking about this, but banning stock trading by Congress and their family, their spouse, not their kids, their spouse is absolutely essential to the integrity of the United States. Don't go anywhere. I'll be right back with Matt Lewis. The book is Filthy Rich Politicians. Matt knows the Luntz Law, which is to say the title of the book seven times in every interview, but we're gonna say it more than that. Filthy Rich Politicians. Stay tuned.

"The girlfriend that never was. Most sports fans, if you have a certain age, if you remember the sports blogosphere back when it was fun in 2013, anti teo, big story, grandmother and girlfriend die in the same day. Big football star Notre-Dame, deadspin comes out with the story written by Tim and Jack Dickey, who used to work at SI friend of mine. Tim and Jack break the story that the girlfriend never existed, it was all a big hoax. And the Netflix series, which I watched, I said this on Twitter. Part one is a good rehashing of all the events. You get the person who catfished Tao to explain what their process was and how it worked out. Part two I found way more fascinating because that's when you get deadspin breaking the story. And the fallout, which I found it heartbreaking from anti teo. So my first question to you on it, and you cover this in the Doc, but Jack explains he got a tip just an anonymous tip to the random deadspin inbox. And then you guys put the clues together. Just for my listeners. One, how long from the tip to when you posted that story? And when you posted that story, did you think it would be the biggest thing in the history of deadspin in your career? Yeah, well, it's unfortunate that the timeline wasn't necessarily clear in the film because I think it's interesting. I think, you know, the whole story behind it, Jimmy, where, you know, we got a tip on a Friday afternoon. It was January 12th, 2013. My wife and I were actually, I took the day off because it was our one month wedding anniversary. And I was out picking oranges in a grove somewhere out in rural hillsborough county, and I get a text, I guess, from Dickey saying, hey, you need to check the email. And I checked the email and I said, okay, well, I think we should head home now. And so we got home at 5 o'clock or something, and I immediately started working on it. And I think I worked on it from about 5 that afternoon until maybe three in the morning. When, you know, I had sort of, I think, identified who the person in the photos that were purportedly in a kakua was, and that she was in fact alive. And so, you know, I picked it back up the next morning, where Jack was working on digging into who the person behind the character was, and I was working on trying to get in contact with that living person whose photos were being used to represent Matt Dao's dead girlfriend. And we had more or less tied the whole thing together by Sunday morning.

Why It's Worth Exploring 'The Big Bang'
"It's kind of funny, Steve. And I think we've talked about this privately, but in my book as atheism dead roughly have the same three things. And this was before I knew that you were putting it in this way. And the third one I put it differently, I kind of, you know, it's more about James tour and abiogenesis, but it's the same concept. And it's funny, though, that we're both logical or try to be. And these are three just astonishing arguments for God. There's just no way around it. And it's funny, I mean, I guess I'm glad to hear that you use these three because they struck me viscerally as the three arguments that I wanted to talk about. The Big Bang in some ways is a curious choice because I think a lot of people think, well, that's old hat. I don't think it is, at least, that's why I revisit it and I talk about it a little bit in that chapter. But why do you say the big why is it worth dealing with the Big Bang, something that presumably we've known about for a long time? Well, science and philosophy do intersect. And scientific discoveries can raise larger philosophical or worldview questions. In every world you have to answer the question, what is the thing or the entity or the process from which everything else came? And the default way of thinking about that from the late 19th century was that the universe is eternal and self existent that matter and energy play the role in a materialistic worldview that God plays in the theistic worldview. In other words, it's the thing from which everything else comes. And it's always been here, and therefore doesn't need an explanation. But one Princeton physicist Robert Dickey put it an infinitely old universe would relieve us of the need of explaining the origin of matter at any finite time in the past. But if the universe is finite, which is what all the evidence now points to. Then that raises a big question that materialism can't answer, which is where did the matter and the energy come from in the first place? At that beginning point. And this troubled Einstein, this troubled Arthur eddington, this troubled Fred hoyle, the great astrophysicist and physicist at the early part of the 20th century who were confronted with this evidence, all recognized that it posed a huge challenge to scientific materialism or scientific atheism or scientific naturalism, whatever you want to call it, the idea that matter and energy or the primary reality, not

The reason that john burns the johnny boy is a mustache. Scene is because john burns was filming another movie and came over for the afternoon to do it. And so that's new the scene at the very end the last thing before the credits roll is new. And the the framing device the stuff of christopher's new and they basically we're trying a lot of different ways to connect the the movie to the show and so one of them is what they ultimately wound up. Doing one of them involve paulie walnuts. I don't know what that was. And one of them involve carmella. Daddy was she was going to be talking looking at the camera.

And the whole like they re ran the whole series the week leading up to the premier and i love that because i love being able to sit on the couch. Flip on the tv. And it's like oh this episodes on this scene is on without going through. I guess it's very intentional on. Hbo's part not to rerun it. Live in sort of their rotation and just keep it as something you stream on hbo max right because they want to give it. Fresh is that committee. If you have a cable subscription you could call up any episode on demand if you're fibers. Yeah it's a lotta different ways. I think at a certain point. They assumed that with a show this old. If people wanna watch it they will want to do it on their own schedule. But that those marathons leading up to the movie or away to tease interest in the movie. The one thing.

Paulie walnuts as a lot of these people are bad and like a liz enabler. Melfi is basically the best of the bunch. But it's sort of like you're you're spending a lot of time exploring the psyche of terrible terrible people and that's not an easy thing to do in a band right. You know among people benjamin a week. How could you into china weakness. Only time to think about every episode. Don't do that. Yeah i will say out of every show. I've ever watched. I mean that was the show by far where on a second watching third y you still pick up so much new stuff more more new stuff than anything. Yes Need multiple viewings. I every time. I watch an episode. I find something new. What is it always makes me happy. Less thing is and this is another one on sort of the business end..

"Like you wanted like one more phase, so it was like a thing. It was definitely a movie, it was definitely a show. My hang up was I didn't think it was bad. Some people are crushing it. I didn't think it was bad. No, yeah, I agree. Yeah. I couldn't get over like the Silvio and Paulie walnuts. And I understand, you have to show whose characters are, but I thought some of it was like the mannerisms were so far over the top. It's like dude we get it like your silvia. You don't have to do like the lead in the head thing like every single time that it was just like beaten into you. It was hard for me to unsee that once I started the first time. I honestly thought that the sylvio performance is one of the worst performances I've seen earlier. You're a movie guy. You can take those wild swings. I haven't earned it yet. I have watched over, I think it's like I counted earlier this week. I think I've watched over a 110, 2021 releases. It's one of the worst performances I've seen this year. It is unconscious. It was unconscionably bad. I thought. Yeah. It was distracting. I actually thought that pauli was pretty good. Billy Magnuson, I thought that guy was good. The Silvio one was just like totally distracting. It totally removed you from the world of the film in a way that was just ridiculous, I thought. I did Tony's mom, that was great. It set at least the stage for his issues as he got older, just the story itself, and I just hadn't watched this so problems a long time. Like there was some callbacks. I was like, oh, yeah, that's that thing. But it just had been so long that I didn't brush up before. I watched it and the story it was in that world, but it felt like it was like in a different planet if that makes sense like this stuff didn't really like coincide. I understood what they were trying to do. And with David chase, all the articles were like, he turned out scripts for 15 years. I didn't think this was the worst script, but I don't know if this was the one. Like I'm gonna use my bullet on this. So I thought the story was actually quite good. I understood why this was the story he wanted to tell. The problem was that I thought that there was enough plot for like a 7 episode miniseries, not a movie. Like, to me, it's not an accident that all of the characters felt a bit under baked, I thought. Outside of Dickey because you spend the most time with Dickey like it's a lot of the movies from his perspective, like most of it is from his perspective. Did you care about dickies perspective? That was my other criticism. It's like, okay, cool. I don't really care about this character. I didn't like the movie, but like The Sopranos grand scheme of things, I want to know about everything else. Yeah, I think that the movie made me care, which is a credit to the movie..
Lord Conrad Black Claims in New Article No Evidence Nixon Committed Crime
"Talk about the incident in history that made called bernstein undeservedly famous Your latest piece with a wonderful title from the editors at american greatness is fifty years of deep state propaganda. And it has to do with the the nixon debacle and the watergate scandal. You met president nixon after he left office. You've got to know him. You wrote a superlative work on the man.

There is no evidence that he actually committed a crime with those payments. You know there never has been and Ever tried because he wasn't well enough to face trial but Or or do you know to go and give evidence at trial. He got a pardon so he wasn't then be tried and sell that The fact is that there isn't it. I haven't the inconvenient fact about this whole Watergate business that Ah it. There is no evidence. Nixon committed a crime. Some people in his entourage that there's no better but they did not allege that mr nixon told them not to basically perjury charges in getting and obstruction of justice but none of them alleged that the nixon told them to do and And and so. The whole thing rests on did his approval of payments to watergate thin than some some of the which did that constitute obstruction of justice and all the closest we have is powered hunt as whereas it just tragically died in a plane crash near the number of young children and nixon said we'll give him give him the money he wants but he didn't say fung as he he's quieter wise under oath or anything like that. He never said anything like that. There's never been one shred of evidence that that's what nixon authorized payments for and he always alleged and there's some of the tapes that the that he specifically said they've got to be able to pay their lawyers and feed their families and so we'll we'll give the money for that.

And, as mentioned, is a longtime friend of Chris Alcedo show and Just a hell of an American. I just I can't say enough good things about the guy. And said he is resigning from the Republican Party of Texas chairman position. Hasn't made his decision yet, but is considering it so wanted to get all of your reactions in 880 w B a P 800 to 889227. Let's get out to Arlington Kelly. Welcome to Christian Alcedo Show. What do you say? Thank you, Chris. You and I have met before several occasions at several events. Um, anyway with the Arlington Republican Club, and we could not be more thrilled. I can't speak for the whole club. But I can't speak for myself. I was also a state delegate last year at our first and hopefully last virtual state convention. Where he overwhelmingly won the RPT chair spot, and so and I've happily voted for him, and I couldn't be more thrilled. I've been bugging him at every opportunity. Since Since then, Um just, you know, asking, Are you considering running for governor and that I expressed my interest in him doing so and he always gave the same answer. I'm prayerfully considering So this is right in line with what he's been saying for over a year year and a half. Um, that's what I've always wanted him to do. And let's hope more people can approaching to express the same sentiment. Now his job in the Republican Party of Texas Now this is not to cast aspersions on to James Dickey. I he. Mr. Dickey was always available for this program and And articulate conservative as well. But what do you think that that, uh The lieutenant Colonel Allen West brought to the table that made as you said, thrilled. It made you thrilled, excited about his being there. He's tough, or he's tough as nails and Texas needs that Texas has a reputation for being as a whole tough as nails and he is absolutely unwavering In that aspect. He is He's a true conservative and a godly man. And he's exactly what Texas needs when, when Governor Abbott closed the state for a long time. Uh, it really soured me. I was I was a government. I was a governor Abbott fan for a long time until until this Pandemic hit. Um and I just I don't think he led led the state in the right direction. And so I've always been an Allen West fan. Since since everyone you know, heard of him back in what 2012. Yeah, and then some, So he's always been at the forefront. And he's always reflected a sense of toughness and unwavering Texas spirit. Even though he's not a Texan, I get that. And I was a dickey fan as well, You know, I I definitely, um Voted for him and or wanted him to win the RPT chair. Before Allen came on the scene, I I even had a long talk with James Dickey and Hopefully he understood why I was supporting Allen west. Instead. This last see here's the thing. And how many? How many times the last couple of months. Have you heard? Uh, folks from left wing states man saying, Man, we love your governor, Greg Abbott. Um and you know, from California from Illinois and then people here in Texas say, Man, we really love Governor Ron to Santa's over in Florida because he's setting the leadership standard, right? You know, you understand what I'm saying. So Absolutely. So when you've got a guy That is that that Uh, A standard set. In the Texas Legislature who did everything he could to deliver for Socialists rather than deliver for, and, uh he's an alleged Republican. But here's a guy that stood in the way of Of building the wall out so that Arizona and New Mexico and California could bear the brunt because we didn't vote for all this crap we're getting with the with the illegal immigration stuff, right? The three crises down there at the border, and then he kills taxpayer funded lobbying, which nobody wants. Not even Democrats wanted. But he kills it to deliver for for these, these bureaucrats instead of the instead of we, the people It's hard for guys like Chris Patty to exist in a Republican party where you've got somebody who's at the top saying this is what The conservative plan to the Republican Party stand for in Texas, and you're not living up to it. Guys like Chris Patty, don't get to claim to be a Republican when you've got another Republican that is so much more conservative, defining what a Republican is, and you brought up a good point about this, uh, a governor to Santa's. I mean, he is a standard bearer for what a governor should do with their state in terms of conservative, uh, straightforwardness and toughness, And I think Allen West is a just sentence. In the making. Absolutely, Kelly. I appreciate the discussion, and this is this is, uh, discussion that's going to probably replicate throughout the streets and the halls here in Texas. As we get into decision making time here in the next couple of months. Thank you very much out to DFW Airport. We go, Thomas, Welcome to Christie. Alcedo Show. What do you say? Thank you, sir. For having me on. I just wanted to say that I had the honor and privilege. Meeting Colonel Allen West and having a picture taken with him. And if he would run for governor or president, he would have my vote in a nanosecond. He is. He is a God loving man. He's a country loving man. And, uh, I deeply Want him.

"No significance with John Dickey, professor of Italian studies at University College, London. The author of Cosa Nostra history of the Sicilian Mafia. I think the most significant thing really, rather than his individual case is the fact that you brought a context in the fact that he was one of many Magistrates, please journalists, honest politicians, and so on who were killed. In the 19 eighties and early 19 nineties, when the Sicilian Matt fear wealthy beyond the dreams of amorous on heroin money was threatening to reduce Sicily into the kind of state of a narco state. And he was more one of many people who fell in that season was distinguished from the others, really, only by the fact that he was very devout Catholic. But I think we need to think of the Catholic Church's view on this is well because the church frankly has a bit of a guilty conscience on this and other matters, because really, it wasn't until The very early 19 nineties. In the aftermath of this astonishing bloodshed, this war that the Sicilian Mafia it weighs down the Italian state. The church actually finally denounced the Mafia on finally began after Decades and decades off silence and collusion to take its distance from the Mafia to denounce the Matthew to say the Matthew was not compatible with Catholic values.

Is Zach Snyder's 'Justice League' a Good Movie?
"The very controversial for so many reasons for content reasons for formatting reasons i saw so many memes about the fact that it was reformatted. Four three zack zack. Snyder's justice league has officially dropped. We say dropped on the internet right. It's not like premiering a movie theater. It's just dropping on on. Streamers is fishy dropped on hbo. Max there's a complicated back story where zacks under had to leave mid production because of a family tragedy which is very sad judd app not try that patel just we took over just we apparently was a total asshole and there were all sorts of lawsuits. About what a dickey was and then you know. The film by many fans was not felt to reflects what zach snyder intended and there was long discussion of a zacks undercut image. Peo- max put in seventy million dollars to shoot a whole bunch more footage to make the zack snyder. Cut of justice league. Come out for years later. This is an interesting story because it is different. From a lot of directors cut stories. A lot of directors cut stories are ten years later. I'm grateful the studio give me access to the archive to rescan the negative and re-cut it is very rare in fact i can't think of an example where someone's like four years later. I got an extra seventy five million dollars to shoot additional footage to make an alternate movie like it is. Is there another example. That are missing where somebody got that. I don't know but what i do know. Is that in the history of film. There have been many many many directors cuts and extended editions and versions. That were revisited. We've talked about some of them here before. And most of our audience familiar with many of them It is not unheard of obviously for there to be something that prevents the original vision to be completed by the person who had it. And obviously there are many instances where somebody could go back and try and piece things together. Only orson welles. A number of times We even talked to. I talked to walter merch about going back in and recruiting and working on touch of evil. There are the magnificent emerson's with him as well. I think he's one of the early versions. Were early famous versions but bladerunner famously for anybody mir charles age And so much inbetween. It's such a common story but this one does stand apart because yeah he was given basically a massive feature film budget to make more of it his version of it and it is an interesting thing like will this happen more often. Will we get criminal. And saying actually i want to shoot a whole different ending too dark dark knight rises fifteen years later. Because i've rethought it. And i wanna go into a very complicated sort of relationship between the artists and the work when you remove the theatrical premiere and when you open up the idea of shooting original additional footage it is a it's vastly different so Full disclosure wasn't able to finish it have a two year olds. Get very sleepy very easily. Don't have four hours with two year. Old where i can watch the whole thing but universally in my social media of the people in my life everyone i know seems to have really enjoyed the new cup more than the last cut. I do not understand why people hate on sex neither so much. I genuinely enjoyed his dawn of the dead. I thought it was solid. I also am a like. I wanted to get into movies. Originally to make watchmen. When i was nice school. I don't hate his watchman. Cut like everyone else does. I don't understand whether so mad about it. I think people to hate sex. Neither for some reason that does not make sense to me. I'll also disclosed and then michelle. I know michelle is actually watched both right but so i have watched the new one. I watched the snyder cut. I did it. I made it through. Well di i not a big comic book movie fan. In general i have seen many of them though. And i did not see the original justice league so i had to do some research on what changed which was really interesting to me. I also actually really think highly of him from a visual standpoint. I find that even when he's not like a lot of the movies directed this one included. The material is just not great in my opinion but he's visually so committed to the bit that he does that his sequences really worked for me. And i think he's a great comic book movie director choice. Because i think he's really. His camera is like ballot. Check i think his action sequences are visually compelling. And i think his approach like to me the thing that felt the weakest about this. I mean obviously the some some major casting problems major script problems but all that aside i think it it mimicked. Some of what marvel does too much sometimes which i don't really like. They're some straight up. Like this is just an avenger. Seen but not as good. And i don't really love what it was in the first place personally but all my my personal take aside. I think filmmakers He is just he really doesn't. He's earnest he's not tongue in cheek and sometimes it gets a little silly and you might laugh. But i think his earnest approach to how dramatic he is with his camera like from dawn of the dead to the three hundred to a and tackling real quick charles before michelle I think that warner brothers is known to have some really tight released times. They don't have the same war chest that disney does for like they. They set these release dates. They they have to make them. I'm not going to get into the wise. And if sets really true but and that puts a lot of pressure on finishing something and delivering something. And i think that some of the the flaws in some of these dc comic book movies have to do with some of that some of us so anyway onto you. Michelle i f Well done on watching. The center is a endeavor. I i think i knew what the runtime was. But it doesn't click in my head until i was watching and the timeline at the bottom. It has like how long you've watched. And i miss read it. I thought it was much like when it said two and a half hours at the bottom. I thought that was a total Not they meant time that i had laughed and that was quite a surprise. So it's long. Don't don't kid yourself jack. Knifed mini series has parts could have been released in parts. My first input. If you will is i feel like i. Keep reading the quote snyder cut. That snyder wouldn't release in two thousand seventeen and i would argue that. I don't know this is i. Don't think this is at all what would have been released for so many reasons. It's a it's a post weeden post tragedy post. Hbo max snyder display. I don't think we would be able to release a for. I could be wrong. A four hour epic in a theater in twenty seventeen. I don't obviously say that. There are many teaser. There are changes are subtle there. Some people have pointed them out and in terms of very subtle and different. Like stolen changes. That i think are in there now. For example there's a billboard others billboard in the city at some point in the messages you're not alone and a lot of people have guessed that something that snyder put in in reference to his daughter. Like these little things that have been put in log away 'cause post years of reflection on it and i just don't think not content aside just the run time. I'm not sure how many people really yes for hours within a theatre. Let's do it. I don't know if we the same. i do. Think a really interesting experiment if anyone ever wants to ever play with this idea of same footage different story concept of how to edit something together. Because i started watching the josh sweden version the same evening. Don't do this same evening through off after watching case for a minute i thought you were. You said you meant side by side like you had to i. Four by three setup does allow you. I will say to have it on the side of my screen. As i was like doing some work so i will say the former three at least helpful in the arrangements of your browser window because like i'm not cutting anything off because it's not a letterbox or other format so the four by three is is is makes it easier to have the size. No i tried watching the conversion right. After some of the scenes giving away some of the scenes that feel pivotal in the story. Line are like thrown in the credits. The opening like oh i get with.

You commit to doing this with us partner with us. And you're gonna get a ton of great reviews on our platform or just authentic reviews however you wanna put it but will be like a review generating event and we can serve manage that partnership for you so as a pr person. We've worked with these sites One that comes to mind is one called congeals. it's part of the gizmodo group and what they do is they just have these. These like specialty deals they publish all day long. They have huge audiences. I mean like one time we we like set up like a lighter an electric lighter through there and as we sold eighty thousand a month or a week like crazy in. It's like taking that model. It's putting its crowd sourcing. The reviews rather than having an editor curate them. In then to your point even in view really interesting to say okay like these manufacturers are makers can show up and say okay like. We're gonna work with you. Guys to do exclusive deals and you guys push them out to your audience and Just like a can deals does and that could also drive a ton of attention in people up deals people. Most most of most of us are deal hunters. Let's be honest. We've gotta talk about another objection. Which is that where beholden to commission rate changes from these retailers. Famously amazon had a huge cut last year. I think it was in april. Maybe being they. It changes the commission. Cut that changes depending on the type of good but it was a huge caught up to eighty percent of the commission payouts. That can sink a business overnight. How do you think about that risk. No problem there you just you. Just change who. You're selling through all of our clients. They're all gunning for the direct sale. They only work with amazon if they absolutely have to because amazon makes us at aren't convenient. So they're they're getting small margins to amazon. The publishers getting small margins to amazon thing about linking amazon. Is that it actually increases in the purchase rate. Because that's a it's a platform that is so ubiquitous in everyone already has an account with and you can click purchases and things like that so you actually get higher conversion rate if you use amazon but you get a lower commission when you're when you're linking direct like to direct consumer site and say like i've made a link directly to patagonia rather than amazon.

And it's not gonna be me. I have no interest in doing it. But i do. Think it's interesting is going to hinge on how performance the sites could be seo in search engines. And so if you have a group that knows seo insider knows how to build a good website knows how to do the content side of it all and then can develop the back links and it really comes down to like other people linking into your site so typically.

They're Gummi. Sugary gelatin base gets stuck in your teeth, Big time and Increases your risk of dental decay. Plus, Children always overeat thieves because they taste like candy.

Uprooted, a Book by Page Dickey
"It begins with an Anton chekhov quote. it says I am in the condition of transplanted tree, which is hesitating whether to take root or begin to wither, and it looks like you took root page. So tell us a little bit sort of set the scene about this transition for us. Well. I. Think in the beginning and and certainly when when I didn't know whether I might with her it was it was very hard to leave. my old garden I'd been there for thirty four years. my husband join me for the last fourteen of and and it was. A place. Created over the years with just tremendous amount of love and passion and and to just walk away from that was was difficult But. After much searching and and lots of. Panic when we really couldn't find anything right away we decided to move to North Western Connecticut and we found a plot of land that took my breath away and. Because, it was full of fields and woods and wildland and a view. Of the Berkshire Hills and It started me on a new adventure and I think that's when. I realized I wasn't gonNA weather. We didn't have to irrigate. Don't worry. She's GonNa. Be. Okay. Oh how how did so so you had been at Duck Hill. For those thirty four years and so you came to start again in said, this piece of property was breathtaking. It took your breath away and. But How do you know where to begin because? Both of us, we were much younger gardeners much less experience crash when. When we began our where I still live around same time as when you went to kill and where in your your work at Duck Hill. So we were experimenting with different things We're at a different stage in our as I said in our experience. You know. Like what lessons? Where did you begin? How did you know what to do I when you got to this new place? Do you know what I mean like what what did you say? I've got to DOT DOT DOT? Yeah. Well, first of all, they were remnants. Of, a garden. As sort of cottage garden in the front of the House and and. And although it, it crossed my mind just wipe it all out I didn't and it was mostly just peonies and. So. I knew that I wanted to play with that and that would be my. Perennial Garden you might say or place perennials. and. Bulbs and a place we walk through every. Time. We go inside and out. So So it would. It would be a fun place to have that sort of a garden. But I realized. Almost. Immediately I didn't want a garden like I had Kale Duck Hill was Full of hedges and. And Boxwood topiary and. It was a series of rooms and it was very enclosed. And this new place where we lived was open to the sky and open to the fields and open to the view and I realized I didn't want. hedged. Garden anymore I wanted something that related to that wildness. So I I think I knew pretty much right away that I wanted a lot of natives in the in the in this. Little. Garden things like M. Sonia and Baptista and astor's and so on. And But then at the same time, I was thinking about what to do about this little garden. I was starting to explore. In the woods we I think we have about eleven acres of woods. And I got so excited about the woods, we have high rocky limestone dramatic woods on one side and low rich. Damp. Woods on the other side and I got so excited about. This wildland that all of a sudden. We were the stewarts of. that. I was almost torn. Half interested in creating a new garden. Half of me just wanting to start walks start pass in the woods and start cutting down the invasive. and. So that was a whole new world that excited me right from the beginning
The Yearning for the Unexplained
"Colin dickey joins us now from Brooklyn his new book is called the unidentified mythical monsters, alien encounters, and our obsession with the unexplained Collin. Thanks for being here. Thanks so much for having me on I want to start by talking about another book when it came out pretty much a hundred years ago with a fairly lurid title. What was the book of the damned? Oh the book of the damned, so Charles Fort's as the author of the book damned, and he was a, he was a writer who I think he was. He was on a path to be a kind of I. Guess what you would call a crank writer somebody who had the sort of wild elaborate theory about how human civilization was controlled by radio, being sent from Venus or something like that he unsurprisingly didn't get very far with that particular book and it's it's. It's been lost. It was never published a it got rejected and immediate he he would spend his days down at the new. York Public Library he lived in Manhattan, he would walk. The New York Public Library, and he would just spend his morning reading various newspaper, and scientific, Journal articles about various strange planed things that that he came across everything from ball, lightning, two frogs and fish, falling from the sky, blood rains, just various bizarre things that nobody really could understand. Understand, or how good kind of idea what what was going on here? And he just started collecting those, and what came the book of the damned was this oddball collection of these unexplained phenomenon, and rather than advocates, some kind of theory, what makes the book of the damned so great and strangest? He just kind of puts it all out there and says we don't really have explanations for a lot of these things you know, hence the idea of you know the. The the book of the Damn these for fourth. These are damned facts. These are damned stories because they're. They're excluded from from science and religion was like the early x-files. Yeah, exactly, it's except without going so far as to even say that you know. Aliens are behind it. It's sort of I mean in his later books for it would kind of try in kind of offer a thesis, but those are usually kind of its weakest moments when he's at his best. When. He sort of just kind of throwing out these ideas without necessarily. Of having to answer them, just kind of putting them out there on the table for the rest of us to kind of marvel at our physical copies of this book still around Oh Yeah Oh. Yeah, it's still in print. That's actually in public domain, so they're they're you know you can get lots of different editions of it? I got this this Great Hopi Dover Thrift edition of all four of his books, which is like twelve hundred pages in total and the massive unwieldy thing that kind of falls me from apartment to apartment. All right well, we'll talk about your book now. which will explain why a? Book of the damned might figure into things. Let's start with your subtitle mythical monsters, alien encounters and our obsession with the unexplained. Give us a sense of what territory your book covers. You know enlarge party grew out of the two thousand sixteen election grew out of a lot of the sense of misinformation conspiracy theories, and all these things that were were floating around, and a lot of which was being attributed to social media which I. Think is fair and accurate, but I also. Wanted to dig a little deeper into the genealogy of where some of these beliefs come from and. What I found again and again is you know? Just simply telling somebody, the factual truth about an a given incident or conspiracy theories is usually rarely enough because these beliefs are operating somewhere on a kind of more primal level. I really wanted to understand how we became a culture. That is kind of yearning for the unbelievable. That is yearning for something that is beyond the reach of science and religion, and so ended up going back to crypt the bigfoot lock ness monster chew copper things like that as well as the lost continent of Atlantis, and Maria and an aliens in and UFO's sort of these these three threads that really define the modern particularly in America kind of the twentieth century America's attempt to find something, magical and mysterious. Scientific Rationale Yeah I was GONNA. Ask about who the we is. I'm curious are Americans. Especially Gullible do we have a particular history with conspiracy theory and this mass, hysteria or mythology I'm not sure it's goal ability, and first of all I mean I think that in some sense, there is an almost conscious decision to believe the unbelievable that that runs through a lot of this. It's not entirely exclusive to Americans. I mean certainly loch ness monster is a you know a denizen of of Scott, London, and the UK certainly loves Nessie, but I do think it is a by-in-large, a function of a kind of modern industrial age culture that has kind of tap out the world prior to. I Dunno, the you know seventeenth eighteenth century there were still literal monsters. There were still things that were unexplained. There were still hearts of the globe that that Western nations hadn't experienced a reached or whatever, and so you could still believe that there were strange things out there.

Sending Group Text Messages with Blind Carbon Copy
"Rick in Glendale he wants to do like a BCC taxed? Is there such thing like email helped him out? Thank you thank you thank you. Hi Rick Halio. I'd like to claim the position of being your eleventh biggest fan of the list. Been listening for thirteen years since your debut on your flagship station here in southern California. And you're right. Yes thank you. Go Go to guy for all questions tech related and this is probably so obvious but not obvious to me. That's why I'm asking you and I you know I as Kim mentioned I know on an email. There's a feature called BC which is an mosh to those old enough to remember carbon paper. Carbon copies stands for Ya. Isn't that funny? I haven't seen that same teacher on text messaging when my family sends me a group text. I can see all the people have gone to. I want to be able to send out a text like ten people and not have them no. I've sent it to ten people so they can each reply to me if they want not thinking. This was like a mass mailing as a way to do that. And text messaging iphone or Android It's android yeah I'm on a So there is as far as I know no way to do it in the Iphone MESSAGES APP But there are and I don't know if it's possible in the android APP dickey Google keeps. It's a moving target isn't it? Google keeps changing the the first of all the APP itself and the second the features on the APP so the current android messages from Google. It might have a BCC what this just. Everybody knows this right. In fact I hope people know that because I still get you know you send out a message to a large group of people and what you're supposed to do is put your own address in the to field and then underneath it there's this. Bcc blind carbon copy. And you put everybody else's address there and then when the people get the email it looks like you dressed yourself but they don't see everybody else's email so you're not violating People's privacy. It also has the advantage of somebody replies. They don't get to reply to all right because that's the worst thing. If you reply to all on a on a on a male thread with thousands of people in there they all get your reply. It's so embarrassing. Can you take me off this thread? So there anybody out there in your chat group has any answer. I'm happy to download a third party. There are Third Party. Apps that do it And so that may be the best to do it. There's a I can I? I could see if we can find a list of all the third party apps we is there anything. The problem with doing this of course is everybody has to use the same APP although actually with android sometimes some of these apps you can designate. Is Your official messaging APP. And then if you do a B C as you go to everybody so Let me let me just look here. there are. There's like text plus Textra there quite a few third party texting APPS. I don't know if any of the main ones I bet you telegram. Does that would be one to look at I actually am a big fan of telegram. That's a three names to search. Yeah let me just see if telegram does. I'm pretty sure they do. They have a really robust Group messaging features. I think that they do blind carbon for For for telegram. I would try that one. The problem with it again is if everybody's using telegram it'll be a BCC if you send something to from telegram to android messages not clear if it will stay invisible and that's the issue right. You don't want it. Secret leaked by accident right so you might have to experiment a little bit. Yeah to save time. I'd like to if I've got a hundred people. I WANNA tax. Break it down and send him attended time. I know I could copy paste into a hand. Yeah Yeah so by the window before I go let me just mention whatever you're paying cameras your screener is not enough. She is just outstanding. I agree Yeah you know. It's nice because I come in here and there she is your smiling face and it makes just makes me feel good to see her so she's great. She helps. She helps well. It's not much of an answer. It's something it's a start in a text message as opposed to you know how to do it in email you can. There's a field you can add to that but You know I just wanted for experimenting. So many messaging APPS. I actually have a folder with messaging. App says signals. A good one. I really liked signal that's fully encrypted telegram not quite so encrypted but has more features there's Facebook Messenger. Can you do facebook messenger? Figure it out
