Revenge, Best Served Loud
"With, arguably one of the greatest opening riffs and Classic Rock Barracuda was written by Anna Nancy Wilson together with Guitarist Roger Fisher and Drummer Michael Derosier. It was written at a time when there was friction between the band and their label to put things mildly. The song appears on the album little queen their first album with CBS. Portrait. Records. They'd left their old label mushroom records after a contract dispute and mushroom was none too happy. Because according to mushroom heart owed them a second album. They not only sued the band for breach of contract and try to block the release of the CBS album but released magazine an album made up of songs that Hart had recorded but didn't think we're good enough to release as well as some live recordings needed to get it up to album length. The dispute dragged on and eventually the court decided that heart was free to sign with a new label but mushroom was indeed a second album. So. Heart went back to the studio to rerecord remix edit and re sequence the magazine recordings in a marathon session over four days. A court ordered guard actually stood nearby to make sure the master tapes weren't being erased. Heart eventually came out on top. As not only did the album little queen outsell magazine by a wide margin. The debacle gave the band the distinction of having all three of their albums on the charts at the same time. The court case wasn't the only reason. The Wilson Sisters in company were mad at mushroom records. After the first album became a million seller mushroom took out a full page ad in rolling stone touting the band's success using the headline million to one shot sells a million. No problem so far. The AD looks like the front page of a tabloid newspaper and included a photo from the Dream Boat Anne album cover shoot. The caption read. Hearts Wilson Sisters confess it was only our first time. Implying the sisters had an incestuous lesbian affair. Shortly. After this ad appeared a Detroit radio promoter asked an Wilson where her was. She assumed he meant her then boyfriend band manager Michael Fisher. But when the reporter clarified, he was referring to her sister Nancy and was understandably outraged and retreated to her hotel room to write. When she related the incident to Nancy to was outraged and join an in the writing session, contributing a melody and bridge. Nancy puts suitably angry music to the word to complete the song comparing the sleazy side of the Music Biz to a dangerous ill like fish. The song became an enduring classic and Barracuda remains one of the band's signature songs. Vera Khuda was test to another incident of severe irritation for the Wilson Sisters at. Against in two thousand eight. During that year's presidential campaign the song was used as the unofficial theme song for Republican Vice President Nominee Sarah Palin. The ALASKAN governor had apparently earned the nickname, Sarah? Barracuda as a high school basketball player for her competitive nature. The day after the song was played at the National Convention Anna. Nancy Wilson issued a statement reading. The. Republican campaign did not ask for permission to use the song nor would they have been granted that permission? We have asked the Republican campaign publicly not to use our music. We hope our wishes will be honored. Their wishes were not honored. As the Republican campaign pointed out, they had obtained the proper performance rights to the song from the record label and were under no obligation to get any further permission to use it. The Bar for performance rights being somewhat lower than the bar for commercial or video rights. With no legal recourse. The Wilson Sisters retaliated in the media telling entertainment weekly. Sarah Palin views and values in no way represent us as American women. We. Ask that our Song Barracuda no longer be used to promote her image. The Song Barracuda was written in the late seventy s as a scathing rant against the soloist corporate nature of the music business particularly for women. While, heart did not and would not authorize the use of their song the RNC. There's irony Republican strategists choice to make use of it. They're. The. Songs Co writer Roger Fisher was also anti Palin but he saw things differently telling Reuters. He was thrilled that the song was being used as it was a win win situation. He explained that while heart gets publicity and royalties the Republicans benefit from the ingenious placement of a kick ass. Song. He added that he would use some of the proceeds in a donation to the Obama campaign and thus the Republicans are now supporting Obama. See Kids. There's always a silver lining if we look for it.

Somebody who ended up having to plead guilty to several charges you know you can see how somebody might get initially hold in. And why they might find it appealing. And the last one. That I wanted to talk about even though I haven't seen it yet but my friends have seen instead it's hilarious. Ted Lasso, got accepted for a second season. Have did yes. He did you like the first season. Yes I loved it. I loved it. I watched all ten episodes You know this is one that they're doing weekly but I loved it. It's really funny. It's essentially it's based on a character Jason Sudak has created for NBC sports. this kind of Buffoon Buffoni American coach who moves to England to to coach a British football team. Any knows nothing about you know soccer as we would call it but UK football. But for the show, they've actually made a a you know he's still very upbeat very funny intoap see but he's he's of a thoughtful person and it's about like how he decides he's GonNa turn this team AFC Richmond, which is a UK premier league teams threatened with relegation, which I didn't even know what? you know how he's going to turn the team around by making them. You know better men both on and off the field and It's really really funny. It's very sweet Juno. Temple who's a British actress shoes in in the first season of Dirtyjohn she's as one of the wives and girlfriends you know one of the wags and. She's Hilarious It's just really really smart and funny and and optimistic like he's a really upbeat guy without being pollyanna and that's you know in these times Steve we can all use a character who who looks on the bright side of life. So I'm assuming Ted Lhasa was all filmed Preko vid right or yeah I think. So I mean it's all shot. Appears to be shot in the UK and it's you know it's definitely i. think it's something that's been in the works for quite a while and you know apple has a lot of money in a lot of you know content that they probably you know sort of hoarded before they launched, and so they could have stuff to roll out throughout the year and you know obviously, we saw a lot of. We saw a lot of promotion and hype around. Like the morning show but they've got a lot of stuff in their in their on the you know in there. What do you call it like just in the vault ready to and this was one of them. and. Then actually one final one and this is one that I've talked about it. Enough Times. When is Cobra Kai season three coming out? Because this is what is This one is definitely in the they they filmed they wrapped before covert ended. So how is this not been released during? Cove it I understand that they gotta do post production stuff but I mean we're in August now like how was is not? It's not released because Netflix's now is looking at their vault of original unreleased material and trying to figure out how they're going to ride out the next. You know however many months and they're like look we've got the now that they own it they. You know you can soon I believe. Later this month seasons one in two will be available on. Netflix but they're going to hang on they're not gonNA just burn off. You know this this you know jam that they've got it. Everybody's waiting for an IT'S GONNA be a huge hit once people see it especially on Netflix because you know going from a platform that nobody knew existed youtube premium to a platform that pretty much everyone has. So I think you know it's going to be seasons went into are GonNa Premiere August Twenty Eight. On netflix. So if you've never seen it, you can watch all that and people go nuts for it and pretend like they're discovering it for the first time just like they did with you which moved from night lifetime to Netflix and then I think they will dump or drop sorry they will drop season three. I don't know by the end of the year sometime by the end of the year but they're gonNA make us wait you know like because they know they can't just they have to start rationing. You know they're eventually going to rally content to they've got plenty but they're not gonna just start burning things off left and right there be very strategic and I think they're gonNa look at what the landscape is and wipe you know other networks have another streamers have and they're gonNA. You know use their big guns strategically. Well I can't wait I. Know You can't wait for that one as well. So excited. Yeah I'm so glad they got it in before. Kobe hit and we Abbasi's in three Elizabeth Shue better be in it I don't I don't see how she isn't considering she's not I will be so sad. Yeah.

My fifty years of editing in Hollywood hits Star Wars Kerry Buehler's Day off mission impossible so many more I can go on ray planes trains and we'll deals. Please welcome Paul Hurst. I Paul thanks for coming on the podcast today. Hope Your Day as well my pleasure so I mean there's the history you have. It's amazing. I mean I'm going through some of the people. Oh you've worked for John Hughes. Brian Depalma George Lucas. Is it fair to say that Brian Depalma is your mentor. I mean I've heard you say on occasion is is that a fair as a statement to make absolutely yes. Yeah and and there's so much here Chris I don't want to jump too far ahead of myself but you know just going through your filmography and you know there's tons that I've mentioned but there's also work that you've had I haven't heard it interviews but you've I think you've contributor on like World War Z.. The Great Gatsby life of Pi. How does that work? Paul you just have a little bit of an influence. You do some work in that film and you're not like the leading editor. Hugs that work. Why why aren't you credited for the same way you weren't some of your other works right? Well h film is an individual case so but usually it's. It's a picture that the studio for whatever reason has some concerns about and They they say would you mind either looking at it and giving US notes and would you mind coming in for a few weeks or it's phrased you know differently but there comes a point where frequently that's On a picture even working for many months at the director and the editor and maybe even the studio executives the producers sort of what I call snow. Snow blind no not sure what they're looking at anymore because it's been working on it so long. They don't have objected to take on. What's there and any light to bring it? Excuse me like bring in what they called fresh eyes and sometimes just watching picture giving notes and sometimes sometimes it's actually sitting down and doing a version So that's how you know And then I find that Not taking credit is a way to make my suggestions more tolerable eligible that. I'm not trying to hog credit from someone yet. It makes sense to me. Yeah you know so that. The suggestions go down uneasily could easily because they're often as genuine efforts to help. I have a question down the road that steps on this topic. But I'll ask you now because it's just it's it's appropriate at this point. Do you find that studio executives as time goes by our. I don't WanNa say the word meddling because that's has a negative connotation to it but you find that their involvement is more were. The work should probably be left to those in the creative process. Director writer editor is is it. Is it more intrusive as time goes by Paul Well I'll say this that the most successful films that I've worked on. I've been the product of my collaboration with the director. Essentially just the two of us Making decisions incisions about the cat. Now that's well said and and you know I wanNA talk a little bit about your early life so you grew up in Paris. How many years were you in Paris for Paul? I was in Paris as a child for about four years. Now are you do you still can you. Are you fluent in French. Can you still speak it as something. You influence fluence. My accent is very good. I'm fluid to the degree washing. Sam Fluent I. I always impress french-speakers but equality. My accent hurry I hasten to tell them that might calculator is very small and and I don't have a real facility. Use it sound them. But I'm sure if I went over there and spent two or three Munson Johnson total immersion. I'd I'd get back to where I had been. You know when I was eight years old so I have the vocabulary of an eight year old child but you know I think I think if I stayed there pick it up you know. Yeah that's certainly flew in my book and then you were at your dad's a painter and I have to believe you get some of his his eye for things in art history major. You're the second art history major I've had and I think what two weeks which ages which is telling because I feel history major. Paul she was. She's a costume designer urine editor. I feel like history majoring in history. GIVES YOU LA. This supreme I for details. Is that kind of going overboard or do you think there's something to that. I really don't know One way or the other. I'm an art. I was an art history. Major not major distinction there right as she the average she she was also an art history major so it was like yeah she go ahead. I'm sorry but in my case as an art history major you spend a lot of times looking and yet projected images in dark rooms and critiquing them so I was sort of being prepared for a lifetime of work. Doing just that although I wound up doing moving images instead of still ones but I think my background is was useful in terms of developing an aesthetic about the elements of life of a style in visual arts. And there are many qualities that you you know you you try to achieve whether it's you know Symmetry your balance or a brace or certain a set of qualities that he strived for that are not necessarily only in visual arts. To 'cause I majored in music in high school I went to High School of Music and art and so my work in film. I find that very closely tied to my feelings about music for for me. Music is an essential elements of my work in terms of making presentations whether it's to the director to the public or whatever music than essential ingredient in what I'm doing yes well said you know. People that are listening to this. podcast cast many see editors and they think they know what it editor's job is but many times it's a teen involvement many times. You're working claburn as you mentioned with a director. How would you? What's your cliff notes? Version of what editor is for those listening in probably aren't sure exactly what it is. How would you define an editor's job? Well I can read to you from the introduction to my book which is essentially a chapter devoted to answering exactly that question but No I I have to say I have ordered on Amazon and I did read an excerpt I think it was on entertainment magazine. Entertainment Weekly Weekly. It was a really beautiful excerpt they printed and people said some really nice things anymore. Campbell talkie movies are made in the editing room and so much of your book I want to get into. It's really an amazing. It's an amazing story. Your life is there's been so much to it you are our consensually. What the editor is doing is putting together? The experience that the audience is GonNa have and everything that's done on a film the writers the actors cinematographers the production designers. The costume designers the makeup people. Here people everything the all their work is Toward one end an s to provide the editor with raw materials. Everything they do do is in service of the cut and the editor takes everything that they have done and uses it to bill. It'll be experienced the audiences. Yeah and do you find as you because you've been so effective for so long. I mean that's a testament to your abilities. Do you find that much of your. Your work is is is with the directors. You find that a lot of it is I know George had faith in you clearly Brian has yes. I had faith you clearly. Do you find that typical or is it. Not Typical of of the job varies as much as human beings very Taylor. Is there ever a time. Where director says you know what I completely trust? You have at it and and do what you have to do or as a director always kind of in some way have to monitor the process like I said everyone's different Are Comfortable having having any drive in some of the likely take the real themselves you know so it varies from person to
Discussing the Show Masks (Spoiler Alert!)
"It struck me as somebody that is is pretty well versed in the in the graphic novel. The absolutely have done something like I say that extends stems from that work so you had this almost impossible task. You had to adapt in a sense. Something that you love and respect and probably idolize is getting a lot of people to yes but also then had to depart from it completely and make it something different. It had to be of it and apart from it. How did you negotiate that very carefully? Also completely totally haphazardly. I mean I think that it was a combination of the energy of a of a bowl in China shop and and then trying to catalog everything that you knocked over and broke so that you could replace it and both things had to happen simultaneously because I think that we went in With a high degree of fear and concern and delicate nece and then very quickly we were just like fuck all of that. Let's just go nuts. And then you had vacillate between those polls and the show sort of happened in the space where we were moving in between the polls because our job storytellers is to make something feel authentic to make could feel real and I wanted this television experience. Because it's not a comic book where you're turning the pages where illustrated cartoon characters I wanted to feel real real and authentic at the same time there's some true ridiculousness happening around the the fringes of this so the first thing that we did and And when I say we at the very beginning of this thing it was this guy. Jeff Jensen I and Jeff and I jeff was a reporter for entertainment weekly remember would write these crazy theories about lost cost under the pseudonym doc Jensen not not quite as soon because his last name is Johnson. Doc in front yes. He doesn't fraud easily easily from my understanding is he did not hold a doctorate in anything. Maybe lost in any way he and I collaborated on tomorrow and and did a lot of world building for that Disney thing but when the third time they came to me and said. Do you WanNa do watchmen and I started kind of feel the beginnings of a glimmer of what it would be about. I texted Jeff and I said I have two questions. The first question is like should there. Be a watchman TV show and then the second is should I do it and I think he responded depends ends and depends and then I was like yeah would you. Would you WanNa do it together. And then he came over and He was the first person that I really bounced a lot of these ideas off of and he and I put together. This list of adjectives A like almost like a recipe list of these are adjectives that we use to describe. The original watchmen. C'mon and if our version if we can check these same adjectives against it almost like a mad libs then than we maybe we earned the name and the first word on the list was original And so now there's this paradox were presented with which is. It's an adaptation of this thing. That already exists. How do you you make it original and I think the gaming of that paradox was still thinking about? Did we game but like that was really the challenge in front of us which was like how does this thing feel like. It's it's it's watchmen. But at the same time it could only feel like it's watchmen if it's taking huge risks when and it feels is like you. You're feeling nervous while you're watching it like A. I don't know what's happening and I don't like it and I don't know where this is going to go next and I'm a little bit scared and not it just scared where it's GonNa go narrative Lee but scared that it could jump the shark. When I read watchmen I could tell you? Twenty instances in over the course of those twelve issues shoes just took my breath away in terms of like. You aren't allowed to do that. I can't believe that just happened like my heart would be racing as I was reading. Thank those issues and to to to try to replicate that emotional sensation for the TV show. That's what we were chasing. Sometimes a we succeeded needed other times. Not but that was the brass ring we were all reaching for. So what we're talking about in many ways is the tone of watchmen and its ambition and and it's fearlessness. And when we begin your series right out of the gates it does seem like you hit those well. At least you hit the ambition and you hit the fearlessness. If watchmen the graphic novel was a meditation perhaps on the morality of heroism. It seems pretty clear from the beginning of your show so that your show is about race period the end it is about race. I want to ask you how much this emphasis on race from. The start was away for you to say not only. This show is the show about race. But I need you to know right now. It is about race Yeah I'M A I. I apologize in advance because I'm not really able to to answer that question articulately yet. And in many ways this my inability to articulate answer that question was replicated in the writer's room on a repeated basis and led to an incredible incredible of conversations. Both difficult in insertive revelatory of certainly from from my standpoint. But what I'll say. Is that the most difficult question and I think that a lot of writers have to answer. Where do you get your ideas from or what? What is a moment of inspiration like what's the flash point and and a lot of the man's to the the question the same way that I will which is like something just happens internally with that just like sort of clicks and slides into place and then at least I feel compelled to get it out out and most of the time for me? Those ideas don't like happen in the shower whereas like Oh this would be a cool idea for television show. It happens because I've read something or I'm listening running to something or I'm emotionally affected by something and essentially what was happening in my life was as the leftovers was ending and I was starting to kind of feel the panic of if I am not entirely sure that I'm ever GonNa WanNa do this again. I'm I'm not having any ideas. In watchmen is just coming at me for the third time. But it's watchmen and it's the you know for me. That's the you know. It's the Rosetta Stone. It's where all began for me. Maybe not the Rosetta Stone. Do More like the black monolith in two thousand one you know where stars yeah. It's it's full of stars quite literally perfect and and an intimidating and right at the time that they asked me the third time because that because they they'd they'd asked me two times is prior. You know once probably two thousand eleven just a couple years after Zack Snyder's movie and then again maybe in two thousand thirteen or twenty fourteen and now I'm thinking it's like twenty seventeen and and I'm placing this time around the time that Charlottesville is happening and I read between the world and many Tallahassee coaches book and I'll I'm just going to be honest with you I read the book because every single white progressive liberal in the in show business was like they say like this. If you read between the world have you read it like like the shame just like you so it's just like you have to read it. You really have to read it and so I was like this. Sounds like an astonishing piece of writing and it and it was when and when I read that. I also read case for reparations which was an essay that he wrote in the Atlantic a couple years? Probably before and in case for reparations which completely. It's both wildly intuitive. It's nothing that you don't already know but the way that it is written in the story that Mr Coates tells is like just changes ages changed the way that I saw the world. In in that essay he mentioned Black Wall Street Tulsa Twenty one and the way that he wrote about it it was just I I wanna say just three or four sentences or just a paragraph as you say it felt like the destruction of a world to me and at that time also Black Panther hadn't come out yet but it had been announced that Ryan Kugler was going to do it in Tallahassee. Coach was writing Black Panther and I was thinking about what Kanda and I was thinking that. If we're Kanda actually existed in the the real world if there was this place of African American exceptionalism I guess in the case of Kanda African exceptionalism but a place that we're only black people lived and they were the best scientists and it was utopia. If white people found out about this place they would destroy it. They burned to the ground. So all of those ideas were kind of like swirling around in my head and then I bought. This book called the burning about Tulsa twenty-one because because of having read and I was just astonished by this story on every single level most of all because I had never heard about it and I felt shame and embarrassment and I would talk to other people like I talked to people of Color and they go. Oh yeah and I talked two white people and they go. What and then I'd start explaining of? This is what happened and I would see them. Start to get feel embarrassed. And then and then disconnect which is what we do when we feel like? We're supposed to know something we don't know it and so all of that stuff was kind of swirling around in my head and the fundamental question that we were asking about doing watchmen is should we do it. And if so why now. And so I- reflected back on. The original watchmen set in one thousand. Nine hundred five of the came out in eighty six and although it takes place in an alternate version of of America it was dealing with a a nuclear standoff handoff between the USSR. America and and it's counting down towards inevitable nuclear destruction on both sides. That's what the that's what the heroes are solving for. It feels else that gets a murder mystery but unbeknownst to us what's really going on the answer to the murder mystery. He has done it is someone is actually trying to save the world world And and I was like so what. What's the big cultural anxiety? Now when you close the comic book and it stays with you and the answer was says. There's a reckoning happening in America as it relates to race. It's not to say that that reckoning wasn't happening during the civil rights movement where it wasn't happening in the the eighties or the nineties but right now as especially after Charlottesville and I remember very specifically Craig like when Charlottesville happened that there was this rhetoric that was happening around where people kept saying. I can't believe they're not wearing masks. They're not wearing masks anymore. The white supremacists are just out there and we can see their faces in shocking shocking. And so that was happening at the same time that. Hbo was saying do you. WanNa do watchmen show masks and I was like what are masks. You know like what happens when and you mix a mask with the administration of the law. That's the central idea of watchmen and then the KKK. Wears masks. And I'm starting to see protesters like Antigua's wary mass. This was long before Hong Kong. But it's like this idea of like covering your face is covering your face a justification for protecting in yourself or are you doing something that you probably shouldn't be or both and then all of that kind of went into the mix at the heart of it in the center of it. Is this remarkable the character that is not a carryover from watchmen but your invention Angela. Apr Sister

Being Multiplatform Is the Only Way to Stay Alive With Fader's Andy Cohn
"Welcome to the digital podcasts and brian morrissey this week. I'm joined by andy kern andy as president and publisher of the feeder which is celebrating its twentieth anniversary serie any welcome. Thank you for having me brian. It's great to be here okay so twenty years. You're not a failure at the time though you were at spend competitor right. Yes i was at spin and then i was at the source magazine yeah right around the time. Is this a different era for magazines right. It sure was so lots changed since then but the fighter has continued right and still magazine bimonthly but now i would guess it is a multi-platform brand. Yes it is multi platform because that is the only way for us to you. Know stay alive okay. I think i got there. I've been there sixteen years now. <hes> and came up through the more traditional you know the time period of print magazines were revenue was essentially if not a hundred percent ninety percent an advertising supported through print advertising and then maybe some events here and there some newsstand sales for some of the stronger newsstand publications ends and that was really the beginning of the end of it <hes> from a revenue stream standpoint and it was a boom period <hes> especially in music because as you head spin and vibe and the source and brands really starting to embrace hip hop as marketing platform and vehicle so <hes> <unk> brands as big as you know general motors ford coke and pepsi it wasn't just the street where brands anymore that were starting to really embrace that culture and <hes> to leverage you know the those that genre of music for marketing advertising so <hes> i think for those publications and what ended up happening is they became so heavily driven by circulation and celebrity and who was on the cover and had to just be as big possible artists as you can imagine the other you know jay z on the cover of the source or your radiohead and coldplay on the covers of rolling stone and the fader and <hes> the bigger the circulation got the more you can charge for advertising pages so zaveri simple business model you know at the time which <hes> changed as we all saw <hes> you know especially <hes> brown two thousand eight so it was two thousand eight the big inflection point yeah i. I think it's interesting because coming over to fater <hes> i came over in two thousand three at the time it was a quarterly publication which is what we're actually back to now <hes> and they the guys that started it were from the music industry so they started fater more out of access to music because they were doing a lot of non traditional early early day street team digital marketing for record labels for specific releases so they would have the first outkast album before it would be serviced to survive vibe or a rolling stone or is it then they didn't have print or journalism or magazine experience but they had this access and felt like they needed the document cemented so that's how feeder started <hes> was based on this early access so started as an emerging music magazine where it was artists that you weren't really that familiar with yet which called plan cover no coal plan the cover at the time it could have been at some point at some point so what what was interesting to me because i was a journalism major in college i grew up with my father was a newspaper editor at newsday and a writer you know for forty six years and i was obsessed with <hes> you know just music journalism and when i came out of college i got a job at spin on the business side of the magazine and you know it was. Was it like you said before. It was a very different time is very circulation driven. The whole business model was based on selling ads growing your circulation and your rape base so for me what happened was is because of that. I was at points in time at both of those publications where they were either sold <hes> quincy jones and and the people <hes> bob miller bought spin and brought it into the family with vibe and the source hit such a big mass kind of mainstream removed that you know to go up from there is hard and you have to really do things that weren't in your dna and your original mission statement so what happened was isley. Spin spin is an example is where it was the quote unquote alternative to rolling stone. They were putting artists like p._j. Harvey and tori amos and you know rage against the machine on the covers when rolling stone was now starting to put david letterman and buffy the vampire slayer as they were trying to become so big and more of like and entertainment weekly than an actual music and cutting edge lifestyle magazine which was in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight and for its earlier years so i think the example is when spin got sold. They started putting a lot of pressure to grow the circulation because it wasn't an independent privately held company any longer by bob optus tony junior who is a big music fan and believe in you know promoting these kind of upcoming artists they started putting kid rock and creed and natalie attlee imbruglia and really experimenting with very mainstream things that never fit or seem to fit with the original mission statement was for spin <hes> so you know you can call it selling out but i think what it did was alienated. The core audience of those music publications that came there for something in the first place and then those magazines evolved because of the business pressures so you know put became much less of a challenge much more predictable like you knew jay z. He had an album coming out he'd be on the cover of the source you know so that's like and then in ninety nine ninety eight you started hearing things like lime wire napster during the internet and all of a sudden those long lead publications couldn't really compete with the discovery nature of music anymore so they by the time these the longley publications came out everyone already listened to anne knew about a new of everything that was going on through the internet so you know when i was growing up as an older person had to go into record stores to find you know different genres of music and it was very intimidating. If you hurt someone talk about dancehall you're like dance all for for that now. Dancehall type it in two seconds and you're listening to dancehall like through napster and lime the accessibility to music and all of these genres were so far reaching now that it usurped. I think the purpose of the longer lead you know print titles so when fader first came out was really interesting and caught my eye was that the first issue i saw was the third issue had had most f- on one side and back with the angelo together on the other side and and i didn't really know of who those people were and i thought it was really interesting so i think that around ninety nine when fader started hit this inflection point where the kids were now growing up with accessibility to every genre of music there was not like spin the alternative music magazine ad source and x._l. The hip hop magazines you you know it was here's something that's really reflecting of. What's kind of going forward you know and in multiple genres of music like someone even myself i was i call myself from the walk this way generation which is seeing you know the convergence of rap crossing over into the the mainstream and i think you know starting to really get into music in nineteen eighty six in one thousand nine hundred seven all that just became like second nature to when i was listening to led zeppelin classic rock or public enemy and rock him and you know the fat boys and the beastie boys and run dmc. It was all l. cool to me. It didn't matter it wasn't segmented so i think when failure came out it kind of like captured this moment in time that was really well well timed <hes> because it was speaking to people that had that accessible so it had some kind of advantage over some of its bigger competitors that had gone very broad. Yeah i think what fader was at that. Moment was what was kind of a combination of the best of all of those other publications from when they first started and with what their original missions were when you look at spin starting in nineteen eighty five and rolling stone starting in nineteen sixty eight they were counterculture. They were edgy. Spin was writing and hiv aids column which it was crazy at the time you know very alternative rolling stone. Had you know a crazy investigative journalism pieces and p._j. O'rourke and all those hunter thompson awesome you know the things that they were doing so i think it just you know fader came out with this like fresh voice that was speaking like a and not to sound cliche but he was speaking to this new new generation of really hardcore music fans but the same kind of secular pressures i guess as they call them in the business world you know were exempted right. I mean in two thousand and two thousand nine <hes> if particularly if it's print advertising driven <hes> music industry's gone through a lot of changes <hes> explain that inflection point and sort of how the business needed to pivot because a lot of a lot of competitors didn't really make it as they were or made it in in shrunk informs ripe right. I think being that failures mission was to cover kind of what's next in music and knowing that we weren't going to be able to rely on celebrity for any kind of real scale or mass reach. I think early on <hes> we were very <hes> very interested in doing events and like not only just putting an artist that you've never heard ever seen before on the cover of national magazine but also like doing events bringing those artists out to perform live and finding ending ways obviously early days internet to continue the conversation online so it wasn't just like you were an emerging print magazine and then had to move onto the next issue you talk about a whole new host of people you're able to like start building the brand in other ways and be a little bit more diverse so i think because we did events early on and it gave us a like a real strategic advantage in that everyone then started to do events and i think we had an expertise and ability ability to do events that became a huge ultimately a huge revenue stream for was his fader fort back fater four was just eighteen years gold <hes> and i think that's become you know it's become a one plot digital platform for us like almost like a second brand go to to the fader <hes> but in two thousand eight when print advertising was decimated we were able to kind of lean lean more on these events and really lean on the fact that the events gave us a little bit more of like a multidimensional approach because we couldn't we wouldn't wooden of survived if it was just the print advertising or just going online or going online because there was display advertising even at that point in time was <music> very you know <hes> is very <hes>. It was unknown territory. The dollars were like pennies on the dollar versus what that the meaningful meaningful print advertising before collapsed was you know so like from a c._p._m. Standpoint from a total gross revenue standpoint it didn't it's not like one. Just filled filled the gap on the other side so for us. I i do point to the fact that we did tons of events and were able to really like you know you get brands involved on a multiplatform level <hes> so i guess like ten years ago or so probably ninety percent print right y- yeah yeah so what is it today. <hes> percentage wise print is probably i would say in like the twenty to thirty percent of the total revenue pie. <hes> experiential is probably the biggest experiential in video because through video. It's that means not only only us creating our own proprietary fater video but we also do a ton of white label video content for big brands so that come to us for ours boris that iq our ability to understand how to work with artists so companies land access to the art and i think that's the the real like magical thing about failure of over the years i think when you strip everything away is the artist access that we have because we have double down on these artists so early on in their career when no one else is giving them that type of platform yet that we've been able to establish these you know great long running relationships with both those artists and their management and not not have to go through agents or middle middleman like give an example of that an artist the the stuck with for i mean they were smaller. I guess when you started working <hes> i mean artists like i think drake is a great example <hes> just because of how he is and how big it's gotten he did make it. I think it started at the bottom apparently <hes> no but drake used to come up to our office and plus music and he was a great guy and very humble <hes> and you know he almost kind of sold us on you know <hes> on his his skills and we started we did a blog post you know of one of his early songs and it did really well and then <hes> and we put him on the cover in two thousand nine. It was his first. I ever magazine cover. We went up to toronto. You went to the nursing home with him to see his grandmother mother. We spend time at his house. <hes> and we just did like a lot that i think no one had done with him at that point because he wasn't really anyone yet and i think that's what our dna really is is like kind of curated and identifying people that we believe in their music and their longevity of
"entertainment weekly" Discussed on Boss Files with Poppy Harlow
"Entertainment Weekly says it's so pristine and Chris. Feels like it was shot yesterday. We have come alone for one wild ride. Apollo eleven from June twenty third at nine on CNN care Swisher has written about Silicon Valley and this idea of chief ethics officers. What do you think do you think that big tech, Google should have chief ethics officers to grapple with all of these things that we're talking about? You know, have you? It's the gel dec- oh to be the chief ethics officer, you know, given the scale at which technology that society viewed as a fundamental part of my role. But I think have takes needs to come at all layers of the organizations. And you know, you know, people are doping. Oh, work engineers, and the marketers working on it. And so, you know, I'd rather right. Or ethical principles? Hold ourselves accountable to it. And and consult with intern. Nally externally to get feedback on how we make progress. So one ethical decision that you have to grapple with every day. Every big tech exec does is privacy. Tim cook recently said privacy in itself has become a crisis. Do you agree? I think it's very, very in a given the scale at which information is flowing. I don't think uses have a good sense for how the data's being used. And so I think the put the burden on uses to a large extent. And, and I think we need better. Frameworks uses get that comfort that they that they are in control of the data how it's used and they feel like they have agency over it. And so I think it's an important moment for all of us to do better here. That's really interesting. Because you say you know, we, we as Batak put the burden on users, and we need to change that. And I'm interested in sort of how you balance that, right? Is you grapple with that? How do you also balance that with the fact that so much of Google's business in what drives the profit relies on having more and more data about the user advertisements? A what do you think most of the data, we, we need is actually just deployed better service to our users. You know, the debut need Radford icing is actually really small. You know, any type of digital cameras into Google, you know, when we show advertisements, you know, you're looking for digital cameras, and that is, you know, most of the that we need for advertising. There is little value in holding data for long periods of time. Because he buying interest, you know, just constantly evolve. And so, the most of the data the, you know, us on behalf of our uses to give them information, but we wanted to be their choice, different people want different ways. And so we're working hard to make it easier for users, and, and you don't think that will fundamentally harm Google's business. I've never felt you know our business is not dependent on, you know, having lots of data on people that, you know, it's I think it's a misconception you do. Yes, you recently wrote.

You know, I just I remember like loving that movie until the very end. Yeah. Because I think I was sad that he stayed with Cameron Diaz. And then also in that movie. I wish everyone was ten years older. They were. Character was still in college. Yeah. Which always kind of baffled me. I mean, you know, what it happens? But it was kind of like.
"entertainment weekly" Discussed on Talk Nerdy to Me
"Speculation rumor, and he did say, okay. So when Jason Reitman did have the Entertainment Weekly interview. He he said this is going to be called Ghostbusters three pass matured. That's kind of what they're pulling the title out there within bringing teenagers. Yeah. I see that you know, because I think it's going to be it's like stranger things meets up with because stranger things is huge. Especially with in though. I mean, like first Ghostbusters was kind of an oddity was wasn't really a comedy. It wasn't really a horror movie. It wasn't you ever seen the script for the derision script was no comedy. It was dark in horror, which is which is supernatural and horror like that. I mean, especially when you're talking about Vigo the card carbon Vigo the Carpathian. Yeah, they rewrite dude rewrote it in some comedic moments in the kind of ease the horror too because I mean, they they are technically actors that play comedic roles, but they were not comedic actors at the time. And I think that's where the twenty sixteen win role. They wait. They win win. He way too heavy on the comedy comedy. Yeah. I mean, and the thing is back in nineteen eighty to lean you're talking about that you had. Wasn't a excuse me if I'm wrong, calm down below. Maybe work Baker did the special effects on his law special. Thanks a good game. It might be. It might be might be completely wrong. You know, that would be my fault. But I mean back then you had new you know, how the way the the goes which is really new hundred years old. It's just practical the practical effects and look cool back in the eighties. But I mean now that you in two thousand nineteen you have so many. I mean, you can do practical the same practical or digital facts on your phones. Yeah. Like crazy. And that's why another issue is with the two thousand sixteen one is or so much CGI is so much and people, you know, just like when the new Star Wars came out he wanted which was still a lot of CJ, but he didn't wanna do everything CGI. And I think that was a lot of the practical stuff kind of lost people. And I think it's a new wave of people actually wanted to see real things. Yeah. So that's gonna be crazy. But what do you guys think? What are you? I'm looking forward to. I can't wait. It's going to be suicide, especially if all the rumor mills are true, I'm thinking, this is just my personal. And this is my personal opinion. I think it's the grandchild of their original people. Bill Murray might be coming in Sydney. We were might be coming in early Hudson's definitely going to be in Dan, ackroyd CV puts. You see if he puts his crystal skull bucket, and there's somewhere just you product placement. All those guys have been rumored to be attached to it. Besides going. We have heard anything by her. I would imagine she she might especially if the rumor mills already going nuts. Forget about any pods to. She's the secretary. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. With the big Lassus whole original cast. That would be crazy, right? I, you know, I the only thing is like it's such a big gap from eighty six or seven was last one to twenty thirty years later that. Franchise sponsors international. Yeah. I mean, there are some lot of animated Ghostbusters out there the extreme Ghostbusters which had females had female characters him. But yeah, it's it's gonna be I think I. Do it. Right. The only thing is I'm worried about is like the whole backlash on. Oh, it's the whole they're going to raise what we did in the two thousand sixteen which what she was trying to say. But I think to be honest, I think she kind of she put the nail in her coffin on getting any more acting city for Sony getting more acting for Sony because you can't you can't just bash. You know, a movie like look her Curtis is misplaced, very misplacing. Yeah. But you know, she's entitled to opinion, and if she wants a ruined career, but he just, you know, lashing out lashing out on look, she's still cheap. So made the movie a lot of people they have their own following. I think it was a financial Ghostbusters answer the call had just killed. It would have made ten more to more. Yes, actually..

Sedna post on the games forum. The intention of the story was to explain how your characters bloodline has a lasting impact on the assassins. But looking through your responses, it's clear that we missed that Mark. He went on to say the players will not have to continue the romantic relationship. And the next installment of the game steel see saying the developers wanted players to have the option of deciding their character choice to procreate was utilitarian decision rather than romantic one. The plot development curse at the end of second chapter of a three part paid expansion and constitutes a spoiler for those who haven't played the game. Spoiler redacted. This seems to contradict the repeated push by Odyssey's creators, advanced games October release to portray the game as an adventure. So malleable that players could choose their own romantic partners, male or female, and the quote this big in new life in the past state demont. Had told Entertainment Weekly since the stories choice driven. We never force players into romantic situations. They might not be comfortable with and the statement yesterday Ubisoft referred to the relationship twist as part of a set story and that hype the Knicks chapter the Elsie without spoiling, it you'll gauge an important relationship as part of a set story the motivation behind this relationship is yours to explore in a game and will be reflected in her character story arc.

"Let's fought the way so yesterday on December nineteenth. We finally saw with the live action Aladdin is going to look like Entertainment Weekly had a cover photo, featuring jasmine, and Aladdin and the genie, and it was a little problematic and kinda messy. Why why are you say? Wow. Okay. So Jasmine's outfit is she's wearing a core set all of a sudden like apparently like corsets are thing of the desert Aladdin who is actually like this really hot guy with nice Brown, skin, tight, curly hair. They strayed into his hair in his skin. Look. A lot later than in some of the Brown photos. I've seen of him. And then we'll Smith plays the genie and has a lot of this weird get up going onto an can we just talk about how hot Jaffar is like the guy that got cast as Jaffar is really attractive. So also like why wouldn't jasmine wanna stick around with Farkas? They obviously cast the hotter guy as far it's a mess. It is a complete mess, and we expected this. But jeez, damn what did you think of the cover? You saw it. I mean, we kind of knew this, right? We kind of knew a lot of this is going to happen going in right? Like it's been a challenge like reading articles leading up to the representations that they went through. I've been waiting the thing that really sat with me that is the quote that I am fought twang twang this quote, this from director guy Ritchie he says about will Smith's role as the genie. The great thing about the role of the genie is that it's essentially a hyperbole for who that individual actor is. So what's a wonderful platform and tapestry for an actor to fill his boots on. Let's as bullshit. I mean, that's a longest way of saying that someone can play to their stereotype. Yeah. And it's also the excuse that entertainment industry, always gives to casting white people as Brown people. Like, that's the same thing. We heard about everything, you know, like, it's it's so problematic. Like, wait a. Undercut the actor work that Will Smith did for the role, let alone right by saying that like he's just playing an exaggerated version of an self. This is just like all kinds of inappropriate all kinds of wrong. I'm not even gonna talk about the preposition at the end because I don't do grammar humor. I think it's obnoxious. But whatever I Ritchie whatever guy Ritchie. Also, like whenever Aladdin like, I think this movie is going to be a big hot mess. I'm only going to be watching it because I want to support Brown people. But I just I'm just really upset with the casting. Well, I'm like half upset with the casting because I knew what was going to happen with the casting ahead of time. Right. But even with the casting that they did they didn't have to make it. So over the top orientalist, and it feels from all the images coming in that this is like super over the top just so funny like that you pointed out now, I can't stop seeing it. The medieval corset that she's. What kind of desert person wears the course it have you been in the desert? It's so hot. There's no way need ripping on your skin like that sounds like a new slur. You course, it weathering desert person person. Zara, do you have an awkward ask us time for the awkward ask a Muslim? Yeah. And it's Christmas. There's always awkward asks at Christmas time. Oh god. I got the perfect awkward ask for me. You know what? I mean. Like only I would be like super annoyed by this. Maybe not maybe not I have a new workout instructor. And she like very well. Meaning we brought up the topic of the holidays, and she was talking about like how she has all these different conversations around like what's appropriate to say is appropriate. Say happy holidays is.

"Aladdin is going to be a major source of anxiety for me twenty nineteen. Yeah. Yeah. I do want to say if you do go look up the picture on Entertainment Weekly. It looks like those like blue magic kind of coming out of his fingertips. Oh is this. Yeah. Yeah. You see that? Like right here. Yeah. Yeah. If you closely you can't see it. I agree. Maybe his like magic in genie powers will be blue still owe. Because him and his Dutch just what I'm getting from the picture. I'm like, maybe his magic is blue. I don't know. I'm sure blue will be a big color for him. And I'm sure they'll have other CGI, but probably going to have a CGI monkey. Oh like that. Boo. Yeah. Oh for sure. But no his hairs weird. More tweets. What would? Said. That's going to be a no for me. I. Reference. Yeah. I'm assuming they're talking about the look because I don't know. I would say other people I have seen another Twitter comment. Those kind of like what you said. Are you on is that they're hoping when you see Will Smith moving it will look better. Yeah. Which I agree. I think that could happen. Some people were I feel like most everyone was just confused about the right? Some were more negative than others. Some thought like what's hopeful and others were like, this is really bad. Right. But then it's like when you if you've seen the cartoon Disney movie Aladdin, it's like, how do you replicate that in real life like without making it all CGI? You know what I mean? It's like, it's really hard. I can only imagine. I really hope that it pulls it like works for the film. Yeah. I agree because the genie's always like shape shifting. Yeah. Exactly. Like how I don't know how they're going to do that. But also, he's a real person. So if you see like Aladdin walking down the street with Will Smith like I'm supposed to no one else. Can see him when he's just a person they were. I mean, there were instances in the cartoon were. The genie was like a lead in size, and he was just like regular size. True. So I don't know. I don't know. I'm interested to see how they do that all the magic to me too. I'm kind of excited. I also love the music of Latin. And I also know that Disney had some controversy when they were picking the actors to play jasmine and Aladdin kind of like how they had controversy. I think it might have been around MU LAN. For that. But I feel like people are always kind of just I mean, rightfully so. Yes. A species of the book of right, or is that they cast, you know, and it is a story where the actors are ethnic. They are not exactly a lot of people are usually always kind of like how is Disney going to. Are. They going to get right? Exactly isn't going to honor the story. Exactly. I remember that too especially with casting of Aladdin. They're bitter not not to sound like super races. But I remember people going off saying if they cast a white dude, this is going to be ridiculous. And I think he's hit ridiculous Agra bar. Whatever. I that's not. I don't feel like any white people live there if it was real place based off the cartoon, you can tell that the character. Occasion. Exactly, exactly. So I don't know Disney. I'm glad that they didn't try and do that. I'm sure like even if you look at the Entertainment Weekly photos. I mean, I don't know. We'll see I'm excited. We'll see I'm excited. I hope they stick to the songs though, too. Don't add a little like extra like song in there or anything. I liked the originals down trek of lead and they're refund songs, especially the genie song when he first comes out in the cave. Yup. I just hope it's I hope it's better than what it looks like it's going to be. Yeah. I have to go in feeling agrees with us though. Everyone's I think in that low expectation that way, you don't get disappointed. Okay. Before we go on break. I just want to.

This is our ocupation you it's one of our jobs every time I do one where I have to say my boyfriend's like a skip to the rates. You just not appreciated to get out ahead of it. When we did the Sika musical theatre. Hey when you listen to the podcast this week. Maybe we just keep those Gada read I'll talk to him. And he was like why say something mean about me?

Oh, boy saw me on the internet that I was like, oh, that's that'd be an interesting podcast discussion. That happens to me. A lot problem is most times, it's not related the sports. So then what we've gotta do shove it into the second half of the podcast. Now, I don't think is going to be a long enough discussion to be the second half of a podcast. So we found other maze like it. And that we would do the one gotta go where like you see it on Instagram, and it's posted there's four pictures, and you gotta pick one that you don't want. Then we saw a couple other stories that also are headlines that have game related. We're going to do a lot of fun stuff game gameless, shall we start with the ones gotta goes.

No balloons, the floats. They change them every year. So Jake, let me just ask you one follow up question are the top five like current. Or are they the ones that have always been there? Because like sometimes they'll have like Peter Griffin. And it's like he's not there. He wasn't there. When it started, obviously, they are pretty classic. Okay. I also stopped watching this thing years ago. I swim you watch doing it. As a team you asshole. She's wrote something down and then covered her paper cheating. We were doing it. As a team.

"But like you. But like that that humanities. I'm honestly. So anyway, so so in the Entertainment Weekly article Benny off says. You know, it actually doesn't he's like it doesn't actually doesn't sound that interesting to me to have the biggest battle. That's kinda boring. You know? You know? You're saying, yeah. Off said. That doesn't sound that interesting to me that sounds kind of boring and like his point being like a like having the biggest is is like is not the point like they want it to be emotionally resonant. You know what I mean? So I think I think just promising like big is no longer like the the most interesting thing that they want to do. I can understand why that was like, you know, almost like, wow. Look what we have the budget to do what we can do this is so cool. And now maybe in their final season having climbed all this peaks having gotten all these awards knowing that this is the end, you know, maybe they can say, okay. It's a big battles are cool. We like big battles. But that's not like what we don't want to go out on just like CGI spectacle alone. You know, he's betting off says having the largest battle doesn't sound very exciting. It actually sounds pretty boring part of our challenge and really Miguel. John she's talking about Miguel posh, Nick. Did this big battle episode in the upcoming season and has directed other by episodes, like hard home, my favorite battle, the bastards other people's favorites. He says part of our challenge really Miguel's challenge is how to keep that compelling. You've been building towards this very beginning. And then he says something that you might consider a speller. So I won't say for sure and you can't do that in a twelve minutes sequence. So you know, how how do you? How do you keep this dynamic? How do you keep this emotionally gripping? So my hope and I said this elsewhere. But like, you know, we can all rank our favorite bottles on game of thrones on unmined will probably look. Given the angry tweets I've received over the years. My might look different from other people's, but one that I always come back to hard home is great, you know, spoils up Sposa where episode last year was so great but blackwater like the first season season two's of her season you, and I discussed blackwater, which is barely any battle and mostly human. You know, emotions. That's that's the one that sticks with me all these years later. So I'm hoping that they sort of aimed for something like. Yeah. You know, as the words were leaving my mouth about why? Why why you know, it's like? They'll join was going to disagree with me about this. And I think I think. You're completely right. Which is to say that. The show is already given us spectacle in a really great way. And ultimately, what the show has also demonstrated is that that spectacle is not satisfying unless there is emotional resonance, and, you know, emotional catharsis and really interesting character developments relationships to back that up. And so I guess the idea that they're spending a ton of money is the memorial think about it. You're right. Like, it's not that interesting. What is interesting to me is just the fact that they are like playing with the format like that. There are that they are making the episodes longer because to me, I guess it's probably now I'm reading into like you're reading into the hashtag. But like to me it implies that they are like almost like willing to take more chances with the form and therefore the storytelling. I hope. So I think that'd be really fun. You know, one of their I know that their run times like were were kind of. Colin last year. But the first time that I remember them really doing something. Great with an expanded run time was the season finale two seasons ago. D- win the sept- blows up. Do you? I'm talking about. And that one that episode starts with that really long almost or is like pretty much silent sequence right are mostly silent on human dialog free. I would not size. All right. Yes. Sorry, sorry. Yes. I meant I like free with the great room Giradi like track my favorite or major body track playing her Neath. And that that to me is the closest the show has come to doing what you're saying..

"Let me ask you this. As I am fellow pop culture. How do you guys the the internet? I mean, this is a obviously a broad question. But has changed the way that we consume media and talk about pop culture, this is different very different than we would have handled this twenty or so, yeah, you know, I think the biggest thing is like it gave rise to the industry of analysis and criticism because I I remember being I'm real watching lost. And then going online and finding their there was these recaps written by the sky at Entertainment Weekly called his name was Dr Jensen, and they were like eight pages of just deep diving into the Easter eggs on loss. And all this crazy stuff Emmer thing like you can do this like this is nuts. But like it. I think it made everyone. I mean, honestly, I think it was the first opportunity for people to kind of speak truth to creative power, and like we can evaluate your stuff, and we're all here talking. And if we talk loud enough like you'll feel like you have to. Change stuff. But I think the biggest thing is it gave rise to like self awareness in meta humor humor in snark. And like that 'cause we think we did enough so several years ago in our theory was like awareness killed the the romantic comedy. Because like no one watching remain comedy is like this is real life. And at a certain point like the the awareness level get so much that you can't like feasibly create a romantic comedy without putting a spin on it because it's just not like, it's just not sustainable like as a narrative, you know. Well, in for me, I think with the internet did. And this was true for me. It created a spice, maybe nobody in my group of friends watches the TV show firefly and loves it like I do. But there are people on the internet who do or supernatural or doctor who and you can go find your nerd people. And so suddenly if you didn't have a family that loved all of you know, TV that you love or if you didn't have a dorm room if you are now living on your own. A new city or it was like, oh, it's okay. Like there are people on this hashtag who love this like who loved the Royal family. Like, I do and I can find them, and we can be friends, and I think that's such a gift really when we we're enjoying something that is hanging. Our mind off of really hard things in the world. It's nice when you can go you understand what I'm talking about. It's such a nice thing. I mean, that's one of the key ways. I feel like I bond. My online community is our shows are maybes and our books, and we could just ad nauseam. How long we.
"entertainment weekly" Discussed on Pop Culture Tonight
"Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, and countless others tonight. She joins us to discuss her new book, according to a source, they juicy big-hearted novel about a young woman who loses herself in a fast paced glamorous world, where finding your authentic self is an easy Abby. Welcome to the program. Thanks so much for being here with some pop culture tonight for having me absolutely an abbey, you have been an entertainment reporter for a very long time and your book, I think perfectly captures a perspective that we really haven't seen before the not. So glamorous ways of getting the scoop on Hollywood's A-List stars. And I was wondering what inspired you to write the book in how much of it is truth, and how much of it was fiction. Well, it is all fiction. It is a story that I made up, you know, at the novel. It's not a memoir tell all or an autobiography by any means, I was inspired to write the novel. Because when I would help people that I really am for celebrity magazine. And I did read carpet interviews and went to parties and met celebrities. They were always really intriguing then I'd always been writing my entire life. I was actually acting as well. And I always thought well, I should write my own material because that's really how you kind of showcase your ability. So I was writing different television pilots. And I I thought maybe this would you show when I sat down and started writing it really took the form of a novel. And that seemed to be the best way to explore this world and these characters that I was creating so that's kind of. How it ended up starting at one point in the book? And I love this you, right? Even people who don't really care about celebrities have one person who gets them starstruck. Which star would get you starstruck, Abby. I feel like I have three two. I have personally been starstruck by person in the last one yet to be the first one for me is Britney Spears. I'm from Louisiana. I will forever. Love her. The second would be Mick Jagger who I've had the chance to me and the third way of not not yet is somewhat Keith Richard on. But I grew up with people that I have these fond memories of of their music and different events surrounding their music, or I got to meet Dick Van Dyke, which is he such a cultural icon that was more exciting than meeting, quote, unquote, any Ayla celebrity right now, it's the people I feel like near childhood have something that resonated with you that really getting starstruck. Somebody needs on a magazine cover. I totally agree. I've had similar experiences. Just recently actually interviewed Burt ward from the original Batman series. And I have to tell you I grew up watching it. I still watch the show and so to actually speak with him was a little bit out of body experience to some degree. And I noticed that you don't come right out in mention any celebrities by name abbey in the book. But you do allude to the type of star that they are. Why did you? Choose to go that route instead of using real celebrities. Right. Well, again, it is fiction. So these incident didn't happen. So I didn't wanna be putting anybody in the position of saying. Oh, well, this is a novel. But then she using real liberties. So I'm confused too. That was one thing the second was I loved the idea of using an archetype they're blind item, like former A-List hot mess actress. Or I think one of them in aging older, our aging multi winning off or manslaughter, and I could be thinking of one person in one archetype and someone who's reading could be thinking of a completely different person who thought it would to really find a way for the reader to use their imagination and insert themselves into the story and kind of gets to participate a little bit in a story because these are archetypes that have been around forever. And there's always going to be another former lift hotness. Actress. Unfortunately from every decade. So that way the story can really live..
"entertainment weekly" Discussed on The Filmcast
"And I thought it was really interesting like how he talked about it. Where you know, he made a movie with with guns like ain't them bodies saints. I think had some had some guns in it. Right. And some people have some shootouts and stuff, and he basically like I read this interview in Entertainment Weekly with him. Katie hasty did this interview with him where he talked about how he didn't like you. You know, he he didn't like the fact that gun was in the title of the movie, but it's the same title as the New Yorker article right that this movie is based on so kind of made sense to keep it that way. But he was talking about how like it really started upset him to have like shootouts where people die, and and he started thinking about here here. I'm going to read the quote from the article here anthem body. Saints was a big part that's part of the culture of the western of western civilization. But I don't like that part of our culture when I wrote the very first version of ain't them bodies saints. It was more of an action movie and had a lot of gun violence in it. And I just did not feel comfortable writing that the movie became what it became because I did not like writing violence as writing all these action scenes that were disposable and bad guys getting shot left and right. And I would think to myself. Well, who were those guys what brought them to this point where they die now. And how awful that they are getting killed with anyone recognizing who they are end quote. And I I thought I thought that quote was so interesting like we see lots of movies where people are gunned down left and right. You know by the dozens or hundreds if you're watching like, you know, the night comes. For us in apostle like I've been watching the last few weeks. And it's like what brought these people to the moment that this is where they die. You know, like what is the arc of their life that they die here. And then like something kind of upsetting about the fact that we just don't recognize like, these people are named isn't there? A a moment in one of the Austin power movies where he kills a henchman. And then you see like quick flashes of that entrance entire life. I think that's right. Yeah. Yeah. And so anyway, this feels like a guy when I'm reading this feels like a guy who made a movie called the old man and the gun and during the course of making that film realize he didn't want to have anything to do with gun culture. And so what's interesting is you only see the gun two times in the entire film. It's like in the opening scene and later on the film, and then like every other time. You only are hinted at the gun, and that was his way of not showing the like he didn't want to show the gun, even though the gun is what the guys using to threaten people and get them to give him money. And I thought at one point the movie was going different way. When the Bank manager said, hey, did you see the gun? And he's like, oh, I don't I don't know. But he told me, and I'm like was he just like was the movie going to say he's faking. But no, you saw the gun in the opening scene. So it also sissies basic discovers it in the glove compartment. That's right. That's right. Just decides not to make an issue. Yeah. So I just thought it was it felt kind of a weird like mixed tone where the movies about a dude threatening Bank people with gun with a gun. But then the movie never shows the gun because it doesn't want to be involved with perpetuating the glorification of gun violence. So there's just weird. It was weird to me. But I I actually as a symbol, you know, it's it's potential violence. But yeah, yeah. I just don't show it onscreen. But I I would rather that than like full-blown glorification of the gun. You know, so, but it just it just struck me as odd that in a movie called the old man with a gun, you only see the gun twice and not like, it's really really leans into the old, man. Half of the title. The old man is really doing the heavy lifting of title. Let's talk about the ending..

Tim Allen on 'Last Man Standing' — and President Trump
"Let's talk about Tim Allen, the comedian the TV star. Of course, his show was dumped on maybe you could go back to the dumping of a show on ABC and his most recent defense gasp of Donald Trump. So take us back to the beginning here. Oh, sure. No, no, Tim Allen had a top top particularly in a Friday night time slot for ABC. Disney sitcom on television. Ami EMMY award nomination and. You know, it's so difficult to get a a hit television show and yet inexplicably in the sixth season. ABC dropped the show it shocked the whole cash, and there was no business explanation that made any sense whatsoever. Spokespeople for ABC. Disney said it the cost had risen too high. Which? All right. Fox entertainment jumped in which smartly and picked up the show, and it will debut. This fall dodge Tim Allen has been a little bit more open to interviews because he's promoting the show. And I think the show is going to be perhaps even a bigger hit. You get a call. It will it will it maintain the same name as is still going to be last man standing. You know, I don't have confirmation of that. But I would think they'd be able to work that out that would be important. Yes. So I expect it will be. But it might be Tim Allen's last man standing, okay. So Tim Allen does this. Interview with Entertainment Weekly. And in the interview, he said. Notice because the economy is better. And he said, I like Trump we need a guy like that. It'd be able to get things done. Well, that sounds like a Maga Trump's supporters. So now, Tim Allen was already kind of in that barks. But but the fact that he is out there saying this now. Shows a lot of actually a lot of courage in the light of the atmosphere that is in the entertainment business because there is backlash against him for saying things like that. Because they Trud President Trump is irrational and crazy and a kind of a

"So I thought I'd bring you on since you've been kind of covering the superhero beedon. You've been writing all these articles slash on that com boat. What we're learning from all this from these, these reports from Entertainment Weekly, to give us kind of cliffnote version of what we need to know. So what, what have we learned? What do we need to know? Well, the first thing we found out is that. That Larson looks like a total ban ass marvel superhero outfit. She just looks awesome. The suit looks great. And this is the first time we're actually seeing the signature red blue and yellow suit that kept him marvel wears mccormick's because there were some set photos that Lebed that showed her in a black and green suit. And a lot of people were wondering why she was wearing that suit. If it was going to be color correction, post production. And one thing we learned from the first batch of photos that turn up line is that the black and green suit is actually what she wears when she's part of this intergalactic team of what are basically space cops called star force. So they all wear the same green, black green and black suit has the star symbol on it. And when we joined this movie, we're not getting the traditional superhero origin story. Carol danvers who has an air force pilot has already left behind her life on earth for a career in star force. So she's already has has her superpowers. She's been in space for a while and she'd been working with star force which led. By Jude law. He's the commander of this ordination. And what's interesting about star force to is that one of the team members is none other than corvette the pursuer or sorry, core f the pursuer at. And that's the villain that was played by German Hyun Soo in guardians of the galaxy who caught store Lord, trying to get the orb that contained one of the Infinity stones at the beginning of the movie. And we in one of the photos, we actually see this team confronting Ronan the accuser Lee pace, who is the primary villain from guardians of the galaxy. And in this he's still a high ranking member of society and hasn't been cast out yet. But surely this movie will be when his extremist views come to light n will shake up some things for the creation likely the rest of the galaxy surrounding him. The crease grow war is like something of a legend in the marvel universe in it's coming to the big screen here we we see our first view of the scrolls themselves, right? Yeah, we the first. Scroll down with cool, too, is we also find out what that Ben Mendelsohn is there alien leader named Talos and he while we do see what the schools look like in full makeup with their green skin and pointy ears, Mendelssohn won't be hidden under alien makeup entire movie because he will be shape shifting as the scrolls do into a human character that is infiltrating field. Interesting. Yeah, so that's pretty cool. And then one of the other photos we see is a digitally de aged Samuel l. Jackson as Nick fury. And at this point in the nineteen ninety s when captain marvel takes place, he is not really in a position of power. He's not the Nick fury. We know not only does he have both of his eyes, but his position is described as merely being just a desk jockey at shield. So he doesn't. He's not really in a position to be trying to seek out superheroes or anything like that. He's, you know, he's got a low level job at this organization. People still check out this photo. This photo. I know marvel has gotten really good at this digital aging, but this league looks like it could be a photo of Samuel Jackson from nineteen nineties movie it. No, it seriously looks like like, honestly, I think the best comparison is it looks like Samuel Jackson in the negotiator like that's how good the aging looks and it like it just looks amazing for sure. And then finally, the last two of interest is we get a. Shot of Sean Lynch, playing a character named Maria Rambo..
No internet-breaking trailer, but we do have the first look at Brie Larson's 'Captain Marvel'
"Larson's captain marvel has been revealed. Yes. We're still six months out from captain marvel, but there's no skirt. No, she doesn't need a skirt. And I guess they changed the coloring on the outfit issues in the cover of Entertainment Weekly that change the color of the outfit. So it looks a little bit more along the the same palette that they used for captain America. See the the the heading there. The future is female.
