"dumbo" Discussed on Not Your Mother's Goose

"Dumbo today will consider one of the disney classics not in the terms of classic movies but in terms of classic disney trivia questions. Your question is which animated disney title character has the fewest speaking lines winning that battle with a grand total of zero. It's your buddy dumbo. The story of dumbo begins with a lesson in animal. Sex ed. we're we learned that baby. Elephants come from the stork. Mr starr stopped by to visit a circus. Elephant named mrs jumbo dropping off a jar of the vlasic pickles. She was craving along with a little bit relevant. But here's the thing. Have you ever been ordering something online. And the scroll wheel on. The mouse starts changing the size menu. Tell you end up buying the extra small sweatpants to go with a three. xl hoodie. This seems to be what happened while mrs jumbo was doing some late night. Baby shopping in her pink shower cap. She ordered the normal sized baby elephant about the size of a press. But he shows up outfitted with ears that seemed to have been made for a fifteen passenger van. Safe to say this baby will not need to call miracle or anytime soon. The gigantic years generate quite a lot of attention around the big top. And it's not so long before the other animals decide they make jumbo junior Not so brainy so they give him the unfortunate nickname of senator. Okay actually it's not that mean but they do start calling him. Dumbo and that sticks mrs jumbo tries to stand up for her kid against the bullies but that just gets her branded as a means herself in windsor and circus jail. Courtesy of the ringmaster. Dumbo is left to go solo ending up with only the most unlikely friends a mouse. And it's not like disney. Let him be buddies. With mickey or minnie. Either no he just gets a mouse named tim. It turns out timothy who dresses kind of like a cross between a train conductor and a british army general with no pants is like the circus version of linked in initially gets dumbo. Job as the top of an elephant pyramid that doesn't work out so well for a variety of factors the main one being gravity double quickly gets transition to a new position by hr which now involves going splat into a vat of pie filling well dressed like a clown time to update the resume here. Dumbo and speaking of clowns. I always thought that bozo. The clowns hair bore a strong aerodynamic resemblance. To jumbo's ears there is a lot of lift going on there. Maybe bozo should have added a flying segment after the grand prize game on his show. Anyway getting back to our story that splat dumbo ends up. Understandably depressed in a visit to a caged up. Mrs jumbo doesn't really help either. Then in an interesting medical feet. Dumbo manages to cry himself. Straight into a case of the hiccups which timothy then offers to cure with some water. That water is actually a big bucket of champagne. That soon has them so slash that they think it'd be a good idea to go. Try out the human cannonball equipment now. I can't prove that they use the canon but somehow they awaken the next morning on the top of a tree anyway. Timothy boldly deduces that. He's got a flying elephant on his hands in quickly begins to picture himself as the new big cheese manager. If you get my drift. Dumbo gets told that he just needs a magic. Feather to be able to fly. And the next thing you know. He's radio air traffic control for clearance to land dumbo. Rework is circus. Act into a flying display which seems like a great idea until the magic feather slips through his trunk mid dive again with the gravity issues since timothy had stowed away as navigator and dumbo hat on this trip. It's not good news in mouse land. Either he frantically tries to explain the placebo effect dumbo as a fatwa. Splat rapidly approaches at the last second dumbo gets the hint spreading his ears. Into the.

When Should You Use Resistance Bands?

"Question is from ms denise morales. When should you use the resistance ban during weight training or will it benefit more to use it when you're priming your body both Resistance bands are extremely versatile. Valuable ways of changing workouts adding variable resistance. Priming your body. You know what's funny about resistant spans is they were not really considered You know like a serious exercise tool for a time and then you saw strength. Athletes really start to use them. I can't remember which. Powerlifting group did any as westside barbell really. I know the soviets used studies. That's where they got it from got it from and then you got strength. Athletes started using them and they started crushing and competitions and know initially bands were considered kind of wimpy. But it's hard to do that when you guys girl squatting and lifting as much as they did nixing people started using them. I started using them myself. as variable resistance watson dead lifts loved them and then use them for trigger sessions. Absolutely love them and now a week doesn't go that. I don't use resistance band so i think they're extremely valuable and one of the reasons why they're so valuable. Is there resistance. Gets harder as you stretch them out which is very different than what you experience with weights. Think you need a variable resistance for the the listeners. understand. So if i have if i have a band. I'm doing a overhead. Press with. I may start here at forty pounds but as stretch it out. It gets much harder now. The cool thing about this is as my arm extends. I tend to get stronger as well. So the resistance matches how my strength tends to express itself. So it's like. I get more resistance right when i get stronger. Which is kinda cool. And it's the opposite of what happens when you have a bar bell or dumbo. Yeah as you get barbells dumbbells you get closer to the end of the movement. It's much easier than what it is at. The weight stays the same right or with the freeway because it's working against gravity. If i'm doing a preacher curl it's heavy down here. But when i'm up here it's not heavy at all because i'm just supported by l. belt whereas with the resistance band it's always challenging. Do i think they can replace weights. No but i think in addition to extremely

This Am a Minstrel Stereotype, Right?

"From New York City this is Lexicon Valley. A podcast about language I'm John Mc, water and this week you know what I'm going to do frankly what I usually do, which is just bring you in what was I thinking about over the past week or two? And it was a bunch of things but I happened to be revising an academic paper that I'm writing and that paper happens to be about black English I don't usually do those but I mean exception with this one because it's a topic that really grabs me and you know when deciding what to do the show about I thought you know I'm going to do what I'm thinking about I. Don't WanNa, do it about Comma Harris or something like that I'm not. Sure. What I could get out of that I wanNA do me and so I'm gonNA share with you some stuff about the always fascinating dialect of American English black. English. It's called by academics usually. African American vernacular English but I have a hard time saying that so we're just going to call it black English and we're GONNA, look at it from various angles that I have been sitting around laying around still in semi quarantine these days and one of the things is. GonNa be the lost. Am That's what my papers about, and this is something that I've brought up on this show before, and that is the question as to whether actual black. American people ever as linguists call it over generalized an in two persons and numbers beyond where it would go and standard English and so for example, I'll tell you I am a person but in characters of black speech back in the day, the idea was that black people used am with all. Pronouns, and so you am this he am that we and the other thing that's something associated with minstrel shows and comic strips, and you would think you would quite reasonably think that that's something that white performers made up as a way of making fun of black people. That's what I thought for a very long time. But after a while various indications seem to suggest to me that actually wait a minute black people did once us am in a different way than mainstream. English does, and of course, it wasn't all black people but there have always been different ways of speaking even here in America and it seemed to me that well, you know as I'm always telling all of you language always changes and black English is no exception and so it seemed to me maybe actually the minstrels overdid it they were characterizing but maybe there was that different usage of an because all these things seemed indicated and in a show that I did. Probably back in about nineteen forty seven remember when I used to be sponsored by kraft macaroni and cheese way back. Then I said that one evidence of this is that there are vernacular British dialects. The US am in just that way you am we am the black country in Britain is sometimes called the people who are the Yam yams and what they mean by that is that they say you am saw gave you some evidence of that but that was that was. Back right after the Second World War and so what about newer evidence? Well, first of all, what do I mean by this as you might call it over generalized am well, here is one of the latest examples of it in pop culture. This is a highly insignificant. Hollywood. Cartoon from the studio that gave us such indelible characterizations as Casper, the friendly ghost and Herman and Catnip who were about the closest thing in real life to itchy and scratchy on the simpsons in. Any case, one of their other indelible characters was buzzy the Crow Buzzy. The Crow was supposed to clearly supposed to be this this black American little character remember the Dumbo crows while Buzzy was an extension of that, and so buzzy uses reflections of the old minstrel dialect. This is a cartoon called no IFS ands or buts, but spelled with two t's it's about smoking and this is what buzzy says about a cat who seems to have a smoking addiction listened closely. Tobacco smoking. To know. That Cat am Am Can am smokin fiend. Okay. So that's the character. But what's interesting is how often you see black American people depicted as speaking that way in many sources that you might think of authoritative and I have something even better than this is going to build up to a big fine. We're we're circling in. We're we're about to find the real thing but some other stuff. That I've found. So for example, there is a novel written by a Black Man, very conscious as we used to say black man eighteen, ninety, nine it's called imperium in Imperio, and the guy's name is Sutton griggs and for whatever it's worth his father was a Georgia slave. So Sutton griggs eighteen nine, he's post emancipation but he would have heard authentic black speech, the speech of. People who were denied education and what's interesting is that in one of his novels he is writing in very serious vain. We would today call him a black nationalist and he has seen where there's a black mother who is being humiliated by a racist white schoolteacher and she's trying to present her child and defend her child and what she says, and this is a black. Writer of black nationalist stamp who grew up with a father who had been at slave and not in New York City but in Georgia so we're talking about wear black English really arose and I WANNA say throws but that's not the were because it's thrived and so he has the mother saying about her child her son, his name and Belton Piedmont arteries, granddaddy arteries after so. Not His name is built in Piedmont his name and Belton Piedmont and she's a character of dignity. His name in Belton Piedmont not is built in Piedmont am. Arteries. granddaddy. What's Ardour ardor is after and shows how authentic this depiction of speech is in that we know that not only black people but also again regional vernacular speaking British people used arter and explains that problem with Jack and Jill. So Jack and Jill went up the hill to get a pail of water jack fell down and broke his Crown Jill. Came Tumbling after what the Hell is. That is that the best they can do of course, not it was Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water jack fell down and broke his crown and Jill came tumbling out. After, because, after can become after. After that is the way many people in for example, Yorkshire still say after October it's dialectal after and so they're always many people who said after and he came here and often they were either slave owners or they worked alongside slaves and so early biking, which has

Patrick's Coming Out Story

"Come out to hear from Patrick who's now a successful Mike artist but he got relentlessly bullied for being gay or growing up in Northern Ireland. I identify as male And I I have an interesting journey with my gender I think because I started doing drag or Soy's drag when I was about fifteen stain kind of progressed. I moved to Manchester when I was eighteen on. I pretty much was wearing full. Face to makeup wakes clothes everything every single day. I think I am used to chester. Oh God I can do this. I'm free to to wear as much as I want. And where did you come from that? You can wear what you want. I grew up in Northern Ireland so I could and I did wanted by think I was always trying to be little bit. Respectful of my parents particularly my mom because she was a little bit uncomfortable at the time about me wearing makeup and bought me wearing weeks and and looking of the Yes. I moved to Manchester and it all sort of exploded e kind of all sort of mixed together. It wasn't really drag. I've never really done to the performances. I tried failed dressing. Dressing up was dressing up and still is for me now and I kind of stopped doing it for a very long time as my career is make posits kicked off. I didn't really have any time. I think there's a good three or four years where I didn't put any makeup on at all but now I'm at a point where I wouldn't even know what it's called I. I'm a man who is gay who likes to wear addresses woman. Sometimes but I don't see myself as a drag queen but juicy self is somewhere on the sort of gender fluid spectrum may be I guess so by just don't feel like home fits with me if you turn because everyone likes putting terms things. These days I would say gender fluid would be appropriate up you would prefer gender. Fluid suspended male. I don't really care. That's the thing that when people these conversations like I think about a lot but I don't ever think about all. This is the term that identify with the most. I'm just I'm just. I'm Patrick and some does I like to lady some days. I looked like a man. Will you go out shopping or go out and make you might just as woman? No I'm on? I think that's probably why the the line is in a sense. I'm why wouldn't see myself as being gender fluid for me? Gender fluidity is someone who I probably would have been more like eight nine years ago when I would go out house with makeup on and with silly outfits on in fact my what am I. University lecturer actually brought me into her office. University and asked me should be cool. You anything different remain is that do we give you a different name? Which would like different pronoun or anything? I thought no and I thought what she questions to ask my. I'm just wearing these clothes. I didn't understand why. Why did he was different? But looking back then I was definitely much more gender fluid whereas these days it's more just address up that's quite progressive really to serve. She was a lovely woman. What's your pronouns? So it's the right way about. Isn't it to actually ask the pers- yeah definitely definitely? I really appreciate. That looking back was a lovely thing of Helen. Do well done Helen so looking back. Can you remember the first time that you may be questioned your sexuality then to know why I think I always questioned bisexuality? Once I knew what sexuality was I knew I didn't fit into the normal. I remember having imaginary friends as really young boy and I always wanted them to be boys. I always wanted to be called Tom. Which is really weird because if my flatmate listen to this my flatmates called so I don't want him to think I have a thing for the boy called Tom. I always want to hug them. I always wanted them to be close. I remember it being because they were boys. We have family video of me when I was a kid. Really really young and our next door neighbor. Child I'm running around child's Charles like calling out for him because I was probably obsessed with and then I think I grew up and I realized what sexuality was. It was like. This is always something that I've thought I've always been attracted to boys and also the messages we getting about people that were male light boys of your school in. Belfast was yes I went to school. It's an all boys grammar. School in Belfast. Very up at south one of these kind of really wheaties for school. Everything around may was telling me that everything that I was into everything I was interested was wrong messages. Where you're hearing. I think proved very young age. I was always some other was like the victim of bullying in a sense. A growing up in Northern Ireland with a British accent With Army family and Camp. So you you were bullied for being English Bison Primary School it was always English and getting a degree because of my accents and then when I went to secondary school turned into A. You're you're gay. Boy Gameboy busted. Dumbo buster bums. The walls was always a catchphrase. That was said when people woods when I would walk down there the corridor. And how old were you I mean throughout secondary school. So from twelve onwards funny because I came out and primary school do yes. It is well. This is an early one. I asked boy to be my boyfriend in Palm. He's GonNa last year of Primary School. I come into how all that would have. Been eleven eleven. The education system is a little bit different Nolan. I think he leave a year or something later. I can't really remember that I recalled. I was very good friends with him and I found him. I won't spend my boyfriend so I asked him. I remember what he said. I gotcha I gave them a note. I remember I remember sort of slipping him tonight. What he boyfriend but I recall what happened after that however I do recall giving him a phone call after school to talk to him because we would every night and his mom picks up the phone and I said speech Cowan please. Is this Patrick. So yes said well. I've heard about this. Fancying thing the what Jamaican and she said. I need to stop disgusting for how this is coming from light. This boy's mum and this is probably one of the youngest coming has gazed. I've heard you were ten or eleven. You try to get a boyfriend boyfriend then. The mother intervene jess and that was kind of that was that because I I remember being on the phone. Remember sitting on my mom's bad being on the phone shutting down the phone. That may be thinking. Oh this is wrong because I didn't really think anything wrong. I guess at the time apartments quite just wants to boyfriend but he obviously thought something wrong with it because he went straight out his mother. I so God what happened with the friendship. I mean that was the end of primary school more or less. Oh I can't quite recall whether or not we stayed friends. We probably did stay friends but when I went to different school you know secondary school so I didn't speak to him again and then there was one boy from my primary school went to grammar school with mate and I remember saying. Don't tell anyone like about the stuff that was kind of kept hush hush and then he's not telling people but don't but not until like our second year of secondary school and then everything's coming out and then I saw his playing to little bit. Once I came to terms with my sexuality and I was afraid of. I think I've sort of jumped straight into it in the sense that I had a boyfriend. I think had my first boyfriend when I was fourteen. Thirteen fourteen and he lived around the corner from my house. So we get the school bus with each other so you did you ever have any girlfriends it right into the boys in primary school. I have so many girlfriends yoga. Yeah in fact. I really love laser device. Full circle moment recently. That my my my main girlfriend primary school I have makeup for recently mostly. Nice but they would just like playing Casey chases and primary school and yeah. It's a secondary school and I had my first boyfriend when I was about fourteen and the dramas about cost because I actually joined the cadet force and my my secondary school And he was one of the one of the sergeants and he was older he must have been bus eighteen when I was about fourteen to. Everybody obviously found out about what was that reaction. Then if they like previously recalling Ubembe boy and abusing you because you are and then they found that you actually had a boyfriend in school and the school in the catas- when I think about those that are times I think buckle news stories. You know. It wasn't all that bad. I got grief everybody. Everybody has something to say. I was ostracized from everybody apart from my very very close knit friends. But I didn't ever quite lucky in a sense I never have enough. I didn't get that much abuse a on me although to be ostracized by the majority of your school colleagues. It's got to be very alienating. Very lonely place to be as well. I think actually is probably the most difficult people some of the teachers to accept or not so. I remember one of my house shooter. Whoever he was obviously being be is to shave my eyebrows off and draw them on again. Of course course I getting a lot of people about and he looks at you. You're not really helping yourself are you. And that was his way of dealing with them. Just GonNa Suck my teeth now just very much that I think about. There's so many stories from my school The head of pastoral care at my school he told my best friend. My best friend was crazy like a piece of artwork and included a picture of the two of us in makeup and to be pulled birth bus into into the school officer. Talk about the fact that we harangue makeup in this picture and he's holding my friend Anton. The Envy's children turned out to be. He gave that he would assign them not the head of Pastoral Care School. Well he's in the wrong job. I know awful. Man Said no support tool then from anyone in terms of authority figures. Yeah but I think very much. My my school wasn't a great place to be gay and with what was this. The nineties noughties The northeast expansively. Brezler not a Northern Ireland so back in in the way I mean. They've only just got marriage. Equality abortion right. Yeah exactly Hallelujah. Thank God but they're so backward. I think of my Johnny was coming out with a little bit easier than of my friends because my family are English. Not to say the Ron. Lots of very supportive very open Irish people because of course there are but I guess my family went as religious especially my dad and I didn't really have thought that traumatic past of of living in Northern Ireland. So what stage did you come out to your parents. Bearing in mind the trying to get boyfriend at the age of ten in progress and then got one by fourteen. I'm guessing he came out quite early to them you well. I came out to my Mama earlier. My Dad moved away to Luxembourg when I was about twelve. I think he moved off work. So this basically he. He wasn't really on the on the scene so I think I was about sixteen came onto him by counts. My Mum probably about twelve thirteen and it was a conversation again. Sat on the same bad. I phoned Calgary from. I couldn't say the words I remember trying to say. I think I'm gay and not being able to say gay and saying I I tell you but I caught sight yet and Saying oh I don't know and then going through listen different questions than eventually. We got to that. She's like Oh you gay. Yes yes let's sets and okay right. I think you're a bit young. So maybe we'll have this conversation when you're older okay. So then every now and then it was a diesel thinking guy and that was. That was pretty much for my mom. I mean my mom was always quite supportive. It's my my older sister is guy I was. My sister had the real hard time coming out so I could. So she came out. I know she came out later. I came up so see is five years older than me. Okay I think she was about nineteen twenty when she came out and it was traumatic. My mom would always say my gay people. I might like gay man. I just can't stand spins. And that was her catchphrase and she's very very much the complete opposite of that now. My sister's marriage has a little boy. My mom loves my sister. I think that's just Hearn prejudice her and

Designing Alexa Skills in Canada with Ben Fisher of MagicCo

"You know. I'm I'm Ben Fisher and I I'm a CTO A lot of startups here in New York work. That's the attitude here in New York The technical capacity and Also did kind of the start up. Send building products but Started Magic Oh As a place for a lot of the Disaffected advertising community and technical people to To gather to do cool stuff for brands And we kind of have focused in the last four years on voice You know and it's really amazing to see you know the community and how things are how things are developing in the global nature of these devices and stuff like that. So Yeah that's that's kind of who I am. I we. You know the company's in Dumbo you know has some distributed people and I live in Dumbo as well And we're glad to be talking to you so amazing and so the the company said you've been doing voice for about four years. Is that how old the company is or the company date back prior to that now? It's the company's always four years old. It's interesting 'cause there's you know. Even two thousand sixteen early two thousand seventeen. There was interest even in Canada. You know around Alexa Google Tons of tons of interest But no one ever did anything and no one really every clunk all we had was just kind of an informative call. No-one no-one took the action. You know it was pretty bad back then but People were interested in in. You know some people who are leading edge you know some companies like Obama and stuff like that. I mean they. They were prepared to do something. It's interesting how it's become a part of our lives now Where it goes from interest actually doing something right right. And so when did you? When did you think you saw that shift when when people in Canada were started? We're becoming more when that happened from being interested to talking action. How long ago do you think that was roughly well in the? Us and people get stuff did stuff in two thousand seventeen in the US. We we started getting. Us You know serious. Reuse projects around that time ended up two thousand seventeen than two dozen eighteen. It really started picking up. And that's when we started developing a real business around this in Canada for US. At least it was really late. Two thousand eighteen that people started signing onto signing onto projects and and all over the place. So what I don't WanNa say signing on but You know th they were they were considering purchasing right. And maybe that took a little longer but That's really when we started seeing at least. Yeah that that doesn't doesn't totally surprise me because just just given the history of the fact that like Alexa and the voice technology big companies have really been in the states for about two years or so longer than Canada than that. That seems to make sense so Yeah no that's great. And so you've had a lot of experience now in terms of developing these voice applications our actions or skills. Whatever you WANNA call them depending on the platform. Can you give us just some examples of things that you've worked on? I in the states maybe just to Kinda give us an idea. The breath of the stuff. You worked on a number of talk more about some of the Canadian stuff. Oh yes sure I mean. Now we work on you know different Business models that we call them right. Some of them are running. Omni channel campaigns for brands whether using Alexa as a as a as a distribution mechanism Other companies are using it. As a you know something that's a little bit more of a product per se not really meant to be part of a campaign only and You know our client list ranges from hospital for Special Surgery Here in New York to Try Bond Yogurt to illy coffee to energy empowered companies like national grid the Air Force as a client. Now I mean there's a we work a lot of different industries. Energy Financial Services. Consumer product could healthcare. You know we have a pretty list of clients and that's one of the things we really liked here. We tell people that they like travelling like travelling and meeting different cultures because all these different organizations are very different right. I mean totally different. Some are more loose than bic. Pen Right is actually Client to you know. That's very different than like Chess S. So I mean you have to like learning about people's problems and what who their customer is and how to help them so Yeah we're pretty diverse. That's great that's great and and our and you said you're on the Omni channel Sir you're covering essentially all the major Companies or platforms. That are out there. Yep Yeah we cover You Know Samsung Alexa Google beyond that we also go into the into the TEX category What that means. Is You know chat. Bots that are connected to these voice assistance you know Kinda Kinda coexisting And we're on twelve different platforms. Something on the chat world Including China and put it we chat. So that's Kinda that's kind of an interesting because we started as a voice thing but a lot of people saw the connections there and we just kind of built that capability and have some cool technology. Additional stuff. Coming out actually. That's that's A piece of Chat Technology that that's kind of advanced. I can't really talk about it right now. But it's so so. All of our systems are becoming more integrated and and somebody really application from from just voiced other places. That's great that's great. Yeah yeah so I'm curious now. Let's let's let's talk a little bit more about Canada and I think this is a unique at this stage. Because they're they're not a lot of agencies that are really focusing on the Canadian market per se. Like like you guys are so maybe you can talk a little bit about. How did you break into the Canadian market with this and And then you know an example of something that you're doing in Canada with the skills and that sort of thing. I'd love to hear a little about that sure. So we find candidates to be a pretty robust market. I mean you know when you add up Google home. You add up the demographic makeup of Canada And the Alexa. You know who what's going on there. I mean the numbers are sure you know about this but the growth curve essentially at Canada right actually outpaces the US growth curve in terms of you know how fast Alexa Google home are being adopted. So there's a lot of Potential. There's a lot of installed devices also interesting. Is You know you have the Quebec market? That takes French. And you know everybody else's English or created English if that's I don't think I don't know if Canadian English is actually setting in terms of language but it's a set of determines location settings right But but yeah I mean It's pretty robust. The real kicker was you know working with Reebok on their global campaign when we were launching Canada and some of the some of the regulatory things around some of the more highly regulated industries wherein So I mentioned we're in financial services we're in healthcare. We're an energy and power. You know those are highly regulated industries. So when you're deploying a skill in the US for Canada there's there's actually legal differences that one has to be aware of and it's interesting because the most of this certification teams that Alexa and and google sort of Amazon and Google are also aware of those. And so you know. I was surprised that that I thought it was a little bit more closer. In terms of regulations specifically around sweepstakes right in the case of Reebok and and what kind of disclosures you have to give to that sweepstakes that's one case and there's a lot of other privacy at at and other considerations especially in banking And healthcare which are two areas that we are working on in Canada their version of HIP I think there's there's some there's some overlap with some language NAFTA but that recently changed to the US Mexico trade deal so there's a lot of regulatory considerations and highly regulated industries. And that was that was one thing that the big deal right. I mean because they won't let you deploy it could take months or something. So that's that's a blocker but feature wise you know there's some I think some features that aren't available in Canada that are available the US. But it's funny because all what we found out through data analytics and we're tracking. Who's we are giving people the option to be tracked to to to learn about who these people are so our clients can better serve them. They change where they're located right but people say they're in the US a lot of time. Ten to twelve percent of the of the Reebok. Sneaker dropped were where people actually in Canada who's who said there in the US. You know that kind of threw things off right so we had to do manual verification of of WHO? These people are aware that whether addresses actually were we were caught off guard by that and Yeah I don't I don't know exactly why I mean I guess you know. I guess it isn't a feature feed but like I can t I can speak to that but I know that there are a lot of that will really address to the to the United States just to get access to the in the US skills because we just don't have some of the actors in and some of the

Why Curiosity Is the Key to a Successful Career with Philip Van Dusen

"Hope you enjoyed this episode with Philip Inducing Philip Thank you for coming on the show. Hello and and for people who don't know about you. Can you give us the really quick intro until offenders and and I'm a principal of their HAL brand design which is a consultancy Z.. We specialize in brand strategy marketing and designed for small to medium sized businesses and entrepreneurs. Are you a classically trained designer. I am not. I am a a classically trained painter. My masters in painting I used to teach painting back in the day. So how did you go from painting to doing design and brand strategy I I took a well. I like to call it a career web rather than a career ladder Lots of lots of side jobs but they we all made each other stronger and I start off his painter. As I said was teaching university for a little bit and then I came back from teaching in south France and I started my own t shirt company with the monitor types that I had been producing when I was teaching. And this was before the Internet so that dates me and and I walked the island of Manhattan with my low T. shirt sample case selling my stuff and street fairs Manhattan and stuff like that. Eventually over time realized that I didn't really like sales that much and I love doing the design work so I I went to work for one of my competitors about a five million dollar t shirt company that it was in Dumbo Brooklyn back when Gumbo did not have a West Elm. I worked there for about four or five years and it went from designer senior designer to creative director are- quickly and I realized very quickly that being creative director was a lot like teaching. Except you got paid more money and you weren't out of work every nine months so so it's nothing like teaching. Just kidding right this is very good. I've got I've got a couple of questions for you. You're in New York. How are you sustaining yourself? Assault selling t shirts. This sounds like it. Like how do you make ends meet. Yeah I was actually working at a frame shop in the West village same time and then I started doing well enough that I stopped working in the frame shop. But that's also right about the time that the the first MAC started to make its appearance in terms of really being a workable. All design machine. That's when I went to work for this other t shirt company. I see Woo man. You're like early kind of digital artist. If you're talking about the first I MAC and I'm gonNA throw a daycare and you don't have to confirm nor deny the date is Israel. Are we talking like eighty five ish like late eighty S. We're talking very very early. Nineties like okay like ninety nine and is this. The Beige all in one Macintosh. We're talking about yeah. Well Yeah Chrome. mm-hmm monochrome monitor the five K.. Yeah yeah the first one. I remember those days so naive myself to learn. Actually I think the first one the first Mac I had I rented and I rented it from a shop in Manhattan it was a Quadra seven hundred or maybe the one before that I think okay bought was a Quadra four seven hundred but it had like you know two hundred one hundred and seventy five megabyte hard drive in you know how powerful it was. I don't understand people do not understand this. One hundred seventy five megabyte hard drive was a big deal back then. Yeah Yeah I mean the fact that you had. Yeah I don't really get into because we're going to hold out. No I hear here's one little blow your mind. got a black and white laser printer and it cost me thirty eight hundred dollars and just bought one for my office and the toner cartridge was more expensive printer. It costs like I don't know sixty nine on dollars or something like that. I always like that. My Gosh so much change okay. So you're working on a frame shop. Now you're selling t shirts and and when you when you say you're selling tee-shirt is it the way I imagine you come out the design you pay for the printing and then you're sending selling your original artwork on a T.. Shirt is that how that works the up. That's how it worked time went and then printed Ed and I You know ship them. I took them in cases with my old beater car to wherever they were being sold in gift shops and stuff often apparel stores in Manhattan But then when I went to work with other company that we were shipping rain for the United States and stuff like that and that company that five million dollar company they also design t shirts. Yeah we did all original designs. I say we are a huge business in the Caribbean so a lot of resort teas and stuff like that. We also have a lot of things called name drops where you have a design but then you put like Siesta key in the bottom of it or you know Tampa Bay or you regionalize. The design For souvenirs shops and whatnot. Then I I went to work for another licensed. T shirt company That did a lot of character. Art You Know Disney and Warner brothers and stuff like that For about a year and I was managing about ten people at that point and then got picked up by old navy right when they were starting. and Oh wow. An old navy and Was One of the first handful of designers there again very he kind of moved from senior designer to create director and eventually over a period of eleven years moved up to Vice President of graphics Textile Design Trend Trend Packaging and color and so and I had five divisions I was you know managing sixty five people. So that's for how I really kind of gum stripes. I came up in the fashion industry retail fashion industry. And during that time I also got you know one of the things I loved about the jobs. I got your travel all all over the world quarterly so I would fly to Tokyo and Berlin and London and Milan and Antwerp and shop for work so I would just bought Trans Right. Yeah Twelve Trans. So that's where my that's where my trend I came from okay so when you're the VP OF GRAPHICS WCHS trends and all the other things that you put in there for old navy. Yeah what years is now. It was ninety five and I left there in two thousand six right. That's your ten year span. There eleven spent two thousand six. And how quickly were you able to ascend from being new in the door to being VP. I I was a VP within the first five years. Wow and what do you attribute that to like. Why did they pick you of all the people because you wanted to managing in sixty ish people right? Why did it take you to be the guy? And why not the person standing next to you. What what characteristics did you have all? I think one of the things that's always worked to my advantage manages. I'm very left and right brain I have. I have a head for numbers and strategy and the other piece of his people management. You know. That's where the teaching teaching really came in Handy. Because I had developed a decent emotional intelligence so managing people was came easy to me and I also oh you know built great partnerships within the organization so essentially my groups were acting as an internal agency to all the other product divisions so You know I think it was my I built an acumen for finance and budgeting and You know hiring the right people managing and people being a good negotiator with my business partners. That sort of thing. So you're basically doing everything that I wished. I had done at whatever place Jason My career because I expired one day to create a t shirt company Godsell. But I didn't have your your gumption. I didn't have probably even your talent to go out there and sale because I was too stuck in my own brain like this is weird. I don't know I can't sell. What if they see no and so i? I picked a different career path. But you did this and you seem to. I have been able to navigate one situation for another and trade up constantly. Yeah it worked pretty well I mean in the old navy t shirt business. This is just a little fun fact. the old navy t shirt business. Graphic tee shirt business was a seven hundred million dollar a year business and we produce the old navy flag teams the biggest selling t shirt in history one year. We sold one point seven million of them or something like that And we figured it out. It was like three percent of the United States population. Bought one that it was so many t shirts that we had to actually buy cotton futures so before the cotton was even grown. We had to like buy futures on causes to hear of cotton while sprint

The Most Anticipated Movies of 2020

"I'm Shawn Fantasy and this is the big picture. A conversation show about the most most anticipated movies of twenty twenty men. And we've been talking all about the movies of Twenty Nine Thousand Nine on our various Oscars awards conversation shows. We need to look forward now. The reason we need to look forward is because new movies are opening and they're not these dingy horror movies that they try to open January third and trick people into thinking might be decent. Here's there's actual big budget studio movies with movie stars this weekend. We have little movie called doolittle and a little movie called bad boys for life. We've seen both of these movies. He's rolling GonNa talk about one today. We'll talk about the other one later next week. Hopefully you will have seen that other one after that but mostly we're GONNA be talking about movies. We don't really know that much about other than the names and the titles and we're talking about why we're looking forward to them. Let's talk about the big picture aspect of movie going in twenty twenty. I'll just say as I've mentioned at the end of the year last year. The little worried about who will people go to the movies this year. Do you think that I'm justified in my concern. One hundred percent. We talk about this on every other podcast that we make now for the big picture because moviegoing has been Ben. I don't even know if I WANNA say in a state of crisis but it has been changing and the way that people consume movies has been changing pretty rapidly and dramatically for several years now but this feels like the come to Jesus Year I agree so obviously twenty. Nineteen was deeply loaded especially by Disney with mega event movies. Not just the vendors endgame not just Star Wars Skywalker but the lion king and Aladdin reboots Dumbo reboot toy story. Four came through. There were a lot of movies. Movies that Disney at least perceived as moviegoing events now in addition to that we got a lot of great fun stuff we got once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite became a box office success. And we'll the four versus Ferrari and did very well. There's always going to be surprises. I would guess that the movies that we're going to talk about here and you're gonNA choose ten and I'm GONNA choose ten. They'll be some some big ASS. Hits hits among those movies but the movie is not the schedule is not loaded like it was last year. I think there will be a distinct or of panic panic around. What's going on at the box office? Pretty much by April or May I think we have our first taste of the panic. That's coming though. Yes yes so this week you and I saw the movie do little which stars Robert Downey junior as Dr Doolittle Let me say this movie is terrible. It is terrible will in a way that I have not experienced in my adult life and I was in a deep amount of pain watching it. I don't think you had negative reaction to the movies I did though well L.. This movie is very bad. Let's just get that affront if it is not a successful movie but I do kind of put on my. This is a kids movie helmet at some point eight and I think I'm not looking to be as rewarded on a deep emotional or cinematic level as you are or once. I realized that the movie is Robert. Downey junior talking to animated animals. Sure here's my thing. This movie makes cats look like grizzly man. Like it's really true. I think that I had a better time doolittle than I did at cats. That's astonishing still worst experience that I've pat movie in like five years. There was no plot and it was creepy people singing weird songs about what kind of cats they are I like I can't I know I've said exactly that five times but I will never wrapped my head around the fact that hundreds of people sought that that was a good idea. The wanting one thing. The cats and Dr Doolittle do have in common is that they are both based on previously existing Ip. There's been not one but two different iterations of Dr doolittle over the years. Of course the very famous nineteen sixty seven version with REX Harrison. And then Eddie Murphy came back as a doctor doolittle of sorts in the I believe in the early outs. This version has had some trouble in the reason. It is so bad ad will the reasons it is so bad manifold. Let's start with some of the production problems so in April twenty nineteen Hollywood reporter had a report about the struggles of the making of this movie. They wrote the new photography lasted twenty one shooting days not including new postproduction work according to insiders and came after an overhaul courtesy of Chris. McKay the helmer the lego Batman movie. Now Chris McKay was not the original director of this Dr doolittle movie which I believe was originally called the voyage of Dr Doolittle. Yes and it was written and directed directed by Stephen Geoghegan Listener. Stephen Geoghegan wrote and directed a movie called Syria which does not in any way resemble the story telling the joke writing the the general disposition of doolittle. Those two things have nothing to do with each other. It appears that Stephen Geoghegan was just a little bit out of his his depth in making a movie like this teach on report. Sources say that it's become apparent to the studio and producer. Susan Downey Joe Roff and Jeff Kirschenbaum. Last fall that the movie budget at one hundred and seventy five million dollars needed some surgery. Geoghegan is known for his Oscar. Winning work on layer dramas traffic and Suryana is his first time tackling visual effects heavy production. That was also comedic in tone own. Self they bring in these new folks Chris McKay among them. Also I believe the writer of the teenage mutant Ninja Turtles series was brought in to Do some script doctoring. Bring didn't help I don't think we need to recap necessarily story. It is technically a voyage. doolittle does go on a voyage. Why do you think they've changed the title? Because I have no idea. Maybe they're just hoping that if all you hear is little. Then you'll think of the other. Innovations I have Dr doolittle and then go see a movie when you say you. Who Do you mean? I people with children people who go to the movies. I don't know. Would you recommend this movie. The parents parents with children. I don't know what your life is like or what your parents rearing is like. I really don't. I don't know what you're looking for in a experience with your your children. We don't have to talk about the entire movie but can we talk about a couple qualitative issues with the film. Fire Way you turn to me about twenty minutes into this movie or maybe it was like seven minutes but it felt like twenty. It felt to me like nine hundred. And you pointed out aghast that Downey junior performance was dubbed not just align here there but literally his all of his voice work the entire film the entire fell. It's very obvious as you're watching the movie s and I also have to say the dubbing is. I turned back to you and asked whether other Robert Downey junior is supposed to be Scottish. or whether there were some troubling racist elements to his voice. It really is all over the place in not got a great way. So the dubbing does not achieve anything additive to the movie. We can only speculate what had happened. My guess is Robert Downey. Junior is an adventurous actor and he likes to. He likes to make choices certainly felt like he made a choice in the original shooting of this film used a certain voice or accent and then they the production decided. This isn't going to work now. It's possible that there was even a sort of production error like it wasn't properly recorded. Yeah that'd be incredible mismanagement of this movie. That's in play. But the other actors that appear in the movie and we should say a great many quality actors appear in this movie up chief among among them Michael Sheen doing his damnedest to play a compelling villain and my beloved. Jessie Buckley shows up in this movie. With two lines of dialogue. She sleeps on a bed. Basically throughout the film Talladega how. That is Jessie Buckley until about sixty minutes. And it's very strange. Antonio banderas shows up Antonio Matarese Oscar contender Antonio Banderas. Who is fine but none of those figures seem to be dubbed? They all seem to be using their natural speaking voices. And there's no eighty are in play here so the whole thing is just absolutely confounding and it is highly distracting as you're watching the movie every time you see Dr Doolittle onscreen and he is on screen all the time because he is the titular character. You're like why. Why is the track sink? Not Correct with the film. This is a film released by a major studio. How did how did this? Hundreds of million dollars spent on it. I don't really know it's it's it's staggering and an unfortunate You wrote down here that the dramatic climax of this movie is literally a Dragon Fart. Which is true spoilers?

Forty Five Minutes And Fifty Six Percent discussed on Joyce Kaufman

"Right what we hear and so far because I've heard make stuff about the lying game yeah it's getting sort of a mixed reaction from the critics at the very least I think I kind of understand where they're coming from you know I I think it really depends on what you're looking for in a lion king remake yeah this is it this is the third of Disney's so called live action remakes of the classic animated films this year the first two being dumbo and Aladdin this one is definitely the most anticipated of the three people just love the lion king and this one have a pretty good great cast in Starz Donald Glover at the voice of Simba you know beyond say the voice of now you've got Billy Eichner and Seth Rogan who play to moan and quibble and they actually steal a lot of scenes they're really funny to Whittle at your for his car and then in sort of a nice little nod to the original you've got James Earl Jones who returns to provide the voice of Musasa and this is directed by John Fabbro he actually had really great success with a similar movie when he did the jungle book remake for Disney just a few years ago so it and made a lot of sense that they'd get him to do this one as well and to his credit the movie looks mind blowing the good everyone who's seen it agrees with them absolutely a technical Marvel how this thing looks from the animals to the natural environment you know for example pride rock that that famous rock with a cold Simba to the rest of the animals that that actually doesn't exist in Africa that's a complete fabrication on the part of the the guy who designed the original movie and and everything looks so real it's it's incredible what they've been able to do you know the whole sort of gimmick of the movie was that I was supposed to be a reinterpretation of the lion king with photo realistic animals and they have really gone sort of above and beyond to accomplish that but I think it does also kind of pose a problem at least for some people because you know the nineteen ninety four movie with a cartoon and that kind of allowed them to superimpose very human expressions on to the animals so they were angry or sad or happy you could really see it in their faces but you know obviously rely and they don't really smile like that or cry like that so their faces kind of end up looking fairly the same whether they're angry at someone or singing accrue the macabre so in that sense the photo realism does in my opinion kind of rob the movie a little bit of its personality but aside from that there also aren't really any changes to the story it's almost a shot for shot remake of the animated version although it does feature a few new songs that we didn't get the original and produced a number of critics that was also kind of a disappointment so with all of that said the movie is currently at fifty six percent on the tomato meter and I think whether or not you enjoy it will depend on one thing do you essentially want a shot for shot remake of the animated we but with super realistic looking animals instead of cartoons or were you hoping that this might be kind of a fresh take on the story and sort of the same way that John Fabbro did a few things a little differently from the original when he made the jungle book if you're okay with that being basically the same movie but pretty here then this is exactly that you will probably love it a lot of fans of already chimed in and said that they had an amazing time at the movie and again it looks fantastic but again if you were hoping for them to do something a little more with the story to sort of justify remaking it or you know even come at it from a fresh angle you're not gonna get that here so you know this is very much a your mileage may vary kind of the situation no it's interesting when you bring that up that way Ryan's for somebody like me yeah you know my kids love the movie right so I probably wouldn't watch it just on my own so I don't even know what my explanation is other than if we decided to go see the movie or if it's in a few months and I'm watching it you know as a rental it's kind of like irate am I entertained by it and I had even thought of what is my expectation you know what I mean which is like is there a rule or not and it from the trailer I'm like wow that looks stunning but I do wonder after about forty five minutes to an hour if you're like well I know how these roles and there's no silent there you know I don't know what it'll be like I'm not

"We just came out from watching Dumbo, and what did you think? Oh boy. Okay. So this is to be to be a kid's movie. And that is what it is a did Disney. Tim Burton's his movie, which is kind of a kind of a weird combination. I tell me I was Tim Burton. I would never ever guess that. That was a timber movie. As of one of the main villains. He looks like the guy the referee from. So if you all. On a lot of movies. I'm telling you, man. He's good at it. He's he's a good scary, bad guy. So of course, you know, this is a this is a very kids movie. It's a it's a remake of a very. It's a cornerstone of Disney's again library and union. So the poster of debris, and I think that was a straight up copy of what they actually will dreamland look a lot like it's like Ringling meets Disney for dream dreamland. And I mean, that's that's about as best as I can do it the overall story. I mean, the original Dumbo so Connick and men, it's it's I think if you if you re watch the original your comet get a better story about Dumbo because I don't think this was actually a good story about dumb. It was more of teaching a lifeless almost almost like, you know, anti business pro animal animals, and you know, and at the end, and this is this is a foreshadowing I mean, this was back in nineteen ninety one hundred years ago at nine thousand nine hundred and so this two thousand nineteen. Don't see you still haven't told me if you liked it. Yeah. I don't I don't know. I I was in different of it. I'm gonna go with you. I. I, you know, they're cartoon invoked so many emotions does when I watch it every time they separate him, and his mom, I tear up and this one bit. I didn't I didn't. I was. Well, maybe because we were already realized that. But I tried to be I wanted to be said, I could not didn't invoke any emotion. Happy sad or otherwise with me. It wasn't bad movie though. It was a good movie. Yeah. I mean, it's a it's a busy timber movie. So I director Iconex movie studio, but kind of actors. Yeah. And adding was a little devito Farrell Keaton. I mean, don't get me wrong. The. Doctors were amazing. The acting was a little like force. But don't take our word for it. What are some of the people watched it? Yeah. Probably a good idea. We have. And Bobby, and we came out of Dumbo. Would you guys think about the movie? Q it kept like some of that innocence with an also brought like real life situations that happens. Casseus? On us. I I was seeing because of my girlfriend. I think shown a greater message about keeping animals in out of captivity. Yeah there. There was a pretty greater message at the end, you know, about the animals and captivity, you know, especially with barley kind of getting rid of all their their animals, and then so so out of let's say ten feathers. What how many feathers do you get this? Million feathers. You're off the scale. I give it a night. Wow. Oh, so you guys really liked guys enjoyed it. Reading for Dumbo to the revenge. Come out. Well, thank you so much. We'll see in the movies. Are it must be couples nights? And we got a couple more people saw Dumbo. What's your names? Josh, what did you guys think? Good memories. But a lot of memories a lot of members you like how the they made an hour and a half movie out of a sixty minute. Yeah. Cartoons. Yes. It was well worth well worth it. So did you get the overall message at the end? I mean, I cry got the message message. Yes. So I mean, that's a big thing since this was place in nineteen nineteen one hundred years later now, we're in two thousand nineteen do you think the movie still holds up? Definitely. And I feel like now even more. So with people, you know, going forward with animal rights xactly so out of ten feathers. What do you guys give it? Tinton while ten ten. There you go you guys from. Josh. Thank you so much. All right. We're here with Robert in rubber just came out of the Dumbo move. What do you think Robert about the movie good? Good. Yeah. Dumble it'll it'll it'll pull on your heartstrings there. And so out of let's see when you were watching the movie, what did you feel about Dumbo? Did you sympathize him? I know this is almost like a learning experience. What did you think about Dumbo? Do you think he him and his mom are happy at the end. Yes. Do you think it was worth the whole place burning down for it? Yes. Did you watch the regional cartoon? And I'm pretty sure we're gonna get a lot of those answers because the ritual cartoon was very old very old and want to date myself. But yes, very old. So so yeah. Out of ten feathers. How many feathers did you give this? Ten out of ten you heard it from Mr Robert himself. Thank you so much. Thank you, sir. Well, you heard it from the crowd themselves of everybody loved it. And some people really loved it. And there's gonna be a common theme that these most of these kids that watch the this this movie. And have not seen the original. So they're probably gonna get a lot more out of it. I don't think this movie's meant for me, and you the minority I guess, we're the minority. Everybody the lowest they gave it was a nine for our audience here. So it's a it's a good. It's a good. I guess I guess not the target audience the audience love it. It's a it's a busy movie. So it's very polish. It's very good. And like I said they would have had any other director wouldn't matter. Probably it was. I'm just wondering how they trained that guy to fly that elephant because I couldn't have been easy. Yeah. It was a he needed that feather. He did he did a really good job of flying. Well, yeah. Heard it from us. You heard it from the peanut gallery, and we also want to a couple of people while we're here at Alamo draft house at this time. Because there's nothing up there is this a bright light. So and we're also thinking somebody else here Ray work productions apparently somebody shirt, there's a floating stick or they're in front of nobody's gonna give you a shirt a disembodied sticker.

I mean, that's so old. And I think. PC issues with the original. Yeah. And I can't even think about Dumbo that scene where the momma is in the cage, and they're taking the baby away. And she reaches her trunk out and rocks. I mean, I talk about it. And I started credit seventy yesterday in the office. I start crying because it's just so sad. And then I hate the idea of elephants in the circus. I just hate the whole thing was then you'll like this movie. And by the way, you just went on a rant about how people need to feel pain.

Well, she's caged up as a mad elephant. Right. We get to see that. You know? It's it's a really emotional moment for Dumbo. It really is in others. Just like like, I don't you don't even see the, you know, Mr. sort seen this. So maybe it's in this movie. Maybe it's not, and I don't know like like really for me. Tim Burton has been hit or miss from me. You know, he did an amazing job with night before Christmas. I think he did personally a really good job with the first with the first, you know, Alice the movie I thought the first one was really really good. I mean that I thought it was really good through the looking glass, not so much. I think he actually was behind Cinderella. I think or at least maybe he produced. I'm not sure if he directed that one. But I thought you know, I was surprised that when I was like, okay Helen, Helen Bonham Carter seemed like a strange choice for the fairy godmother in that. But she worked really well. But I don't know. I just think this is a movie as far as I've seen about it. Not of my not that excited for it. Or that impressed by it in the trailers. But I just have you know, feeling like it's going to be too hard of a story to try to jump from animated to live action. Now, they did a really good job with that in jungle book like I said before a really really good job done, John. I didn't absolutely amazing job, but for beauty and the beast. I mean, it looked really good visually. It really. Did. You know, there was some song like musical numbers that were really really good. But like be our guest, and like, you know, evermore I'm like, I don't really care. They're just not blowing me away. I mean, so. I don't know. And you know, that movie beauty and the beast had a really star studded cast to it really did had a very very big star cast, you know, so I don't know from what I've seen of this movie. So far, I have a feeling it's not going to do as well as they hope. I have a feeling it might even you know, be a bomb. I have a feeling it might be. I hope I'm wrong. I really do because you know, what I am. If you've ever listened to my, you know, to sci-fi episodes of the past you can probably tell I'm a pretty big Disney fan. I really am. You know, I've watched a lot of 'em may classics. I've watched a lot of the new films. I lot watched a lot of lake, you know, the safe films not so safe films. I've really know always been a fan of Disney innocence. I was a kid, right? And I was just lucky enough. It kind of jumped to adulthood, so I know of Dumbo I know of the story and just what I see of it so far with this one. I just don't think it's going to do as well of a job jumping from you know, page to screen as they really hoped. It would I. And you know, what maybe I need to see more maybe need another trailer. Because I was if he about jungle book until the final trailer they showed it Super Bowl that year because before that. Oh, yeah. Looked really great visually.
