Max Has NO FEAR FOR THE DEER + Nick Nurse ‘Coaching Clinic’
"That's not a bad shot wasn't a bad shopping to see not it was a bad shot. But how did they beat Philly? Was that a good shot? Just tell me that was was that a Nick nerve-wracking. This is the best coach you can do we need to Coalinga. Is that the best player you go? Okay. So this is what is what I wanted to hear from you mind me getting that. I mean running off the corner going all the way following the way from the three-point line that that was the way you designed. This is where I'm getting that thing. Okay. So then let's talk about that. Then ignorant didn't have a play lined up in that situation or at least we maybe didn't have the the player. Maybe maybe that's it. In my opinion. He said, you know what they figure things out up to this point. I'm going to let them just keep going cuz I have nothing and that's a problem that's off. Can't be that kind of Coach into play. I believe in this situation that Brad Stevens to me and although Nick nurse is the coach of the year. I like Brad Stevens home is a knows better now like next Nur Nick nurses X's and O's I think he is. I think he gets guys in places. They need to be and it has really worked out well for so so I don't I don't necessarily think that yeah, you want some people that call timeout. Okay, you can call timeout but now you give the other team opportunity to self esteem. So if I promise up until you come down to your file before guy gets into the act of shooting Mean there are a bunch of things. You can talk about that. You can't talk about on the flyer. So that's a good point because you if you're Brad Stevens, I'm telling my guys to foul. They needed three follow. Yeah, but they they going to do that. They did not going to do that because they didn't have that opportunity to think about it. They just play what time on the situation you have more time to think about. Absolutely so that maybe it's why Nick nurse doesn't call a time-out init work off. All you were trying to do is get a decent. Look at it three point shot got a decent Loop. Don't miss don't miss out on this one. It's your chance. You know, Cedric Maxwell says go down absolutely had to betonline.ag today and take advantage of all the great signup bonuses betonline.ag your online sportsbooks experts and it now I don't know man. just feel like when it comes down like you say like when it comes out and accessing those late-game situations, I'm taking Brad Stevens over over Nick nurse all day them, but when Nick nurse but some guy told me later on or off. Yeah, some guy told me the other day on the radio from Toronto said Nick nurses by the arrestee was a give him a clinic in coaching. Okay. Oh, I thought that goes but this is my thing with him. This beef with Nick you you played out that situation, right? It didn't pan out obviously depend on welfare. But you know, you played that card whatever it is what it is right off of 20 minutes later. So it was a microphone in your face and you're gonna complain about oh Jason Tatum got their free throw line too many times all the favors. I mean, excuse me, all the referees gave him that one come on and while you're trying to put up there and you're trying to put something in somebody's you're trying to put some because if it's not working you're down to well, you're trying to put your grabbing it whatever you can grab that actually the course of the year. You're trying that your job. Well, you're grabbing it what you can grab it. See I can really hasn't been that guy you know that said, oh my God, there's no way to stop. I'll come David Jaylen Brown has done a nice job. I'm just I sewing being one off. Woman with G acha you gotta yeah, and they haven't really had to double-team. That's true. So, you know what Jaylen brown hair but his defense has been underrated. How about the time that Jaylen Brown? I mean you're talking about quickness thought he ripped off calorie calories was dribbling and it was like stripping. Well, yeah look like look like brown was in The Matrix the way he went across and grabbed the basketball game. Carolina was sent he was going back the other way know when the ball on the floor you you ain't got it no more. I looked at him. Where did it go with so long? I mean, it's been it's been eye-opening to see some of the some of the situations and even now down that bubble people talk about or you know, what's going on with Milwaukee Milwaukee is trademark what they do. They give up three's what does what does Miami like to do? Oh you take the reason you're walking Milwaukee is given that more FAQ. To anybody else. So Miami's Forte there strip is shoot the three. Yeah. So if you ever team does knocking down threes in a regular area off and you you're struggling right now with, you know, Yiannis and Middleton and you know, they play great against the Celtics but they've had a you know, Jonas has been if they use the series honest is going to be exposed again time to time MVP. I agree with that. Well, the biggest reason why I agree with that is because you you got a 27-point performance out of Chris Middleton office and you couldn't make that a win like that's a big. Well somebody else involved in this. Well, that's what I'm saying. You know his Lopez involved. Where is Lopez build out. 1 game? Okay lower game loading again if off on your scores Seventeen eighteen, you're in trouble. Well, we're we're and that's the thing about picking up your teammates like somebody who's like Kimba. Okay. Kimball didn't was barely scored and Marcus fairly score. Yep. You had somebody else that kind of shoulder the load until those guys got it together and you look at blood. So what's blessed done during the series always been a little banged up. So I don't I don't trust them this man. This is obviously I've never been like like that's always in my thing Milwaukee. Yiannis is going to be honest, but I don't trust your boys like your squad is shaky Milton will give you those 30.93 here and there but need to make sure those are wins you can give those up Jerry has travels big man. I really like Miami and new series. I just like their Focus right now, too. Yeah. I totally agree. I think again to see to me, it's Jimmy Butler Factor. Yeah, because they those dudes right now bam alabado guys, like they're they're taking on that same Persona is Jimmy Butler like, you know jumping off. Yeah. I mean Jimmy brother man. I mean he said about when you asked about guests and family come into the bubble was you said he I'm not bringing anybody man. This is a business trip. Wow. While I said liked that I've always been among. I

Beethoven the Pianist
"Welcome to classics for Kids I'm Naomi Lewin. Once upon a time, keyboard music was written for the Clavichord or Harpsichord. A harpsichord looks a lot like a piano but the sound is produced differently inside a Harpsichord the strings are plucked by little quills sharp pointy spikes usually made from the heart ends of feathers. The only way to get the Harpsichord to play louder is to pluck more than one string at a time. But a piano has little felt covered hammers that hit the strings, which means you can control the dynamics. How loud the sound is by how hard you push the keys. The Piano is named for the fact that you can change the dynamics piano is short for piano, Forte Italian four soft loud. One of the cool things about even that he was living at a time when the piano was literally growing up that's William Black who was head of the Piano Department at the University of Cincinnati College, Conservatory of Music according to him. When Beethoven started writing for the piano, it only had forty eight keys. But by the end of Beethoven's life, it was much closer to today's piano, which has eighty eight keys. So over the course of his thirty or forty years of writing, he was watching this instrument grow both in power and in range. Sort of like a apparent watching a child grow from a baby to a an adolescent and finally to an adult in the thirty two sonatas big solo pieces that Beethoven wrote for the piano. You can hear him demonstrating some of the great things his new instrument could. William Black said in one Sonata, Beethoven starts both hands playing in the lower part of the keyboard and within a very short time the right hand climbs very quickly as if it's in a hurry to the top of the piano when he keeps doing that over and over again, and when he gets to the top of the piano plays very loudly all of a sudden to sort of proclaim that it's gotten to the time. That was one way to show how large the piano keyboard had gotten in another Sonata Beethoven starts both hands in the middle of the piano then has them traveled to opposite ends of the keyboard before they meet back up again in the middle. Or even has the top and bottom parts of the keyboard hold a conversation in this sonata it almost sounds like a grandfather talking to his grandchild. One of the great improvements to the piano in Beethoven's Day, was the pedal. Early Pianos had lever near your knee, which was pretty awkward to use on Beethoven's piano pedals had been moved to where they are today near the ground and you operated them with your feet. pedals change the quality of the sound when you hit a key on the piano hammers, strike the strings and the sound starts. When you let go of the key things called dampers come down onto the strings to stop the sound. William. Black, said Beethoven loved the new and improved damper pedal which stopped the dampers from stopping the sound so that it kept on going and going. So here was a a brand new sort of hazy foggy misty type of sound that he was introducing to to music that this pedal would make possible on the piano listen closely and you can hear how the melody gets slightly blurred. That's from the tempests Nada a piece Beethoven named for Shakespeare's play the tempest which Beethoven. said. Him To write that Sonata before that, you heard part of the pathetic. Sonata name that Beethoven also came up with and the Moonlight Sonata a name that was not Beethoven's idea moonlight was attached to that Sonata by publisher who knew he could make more money selling a piece with a catchy title.

Kristen Roupenian Reads Shirley Jackson
"Kristen a so you knew when we first talked about doing the podcast that you wanted to read a story by Shirley Jackson. Why was that mean? Shirley Jackson is an has been for years. One of my absolutely favorite writers came into my mind as soon as you asked and I also knew that she published a lot in the New Yorker and that there was a wider range of stories there then maybe people would not I and so. I just wish sure that the chance to diamonds the archive and find a story by her. That would be wonderful and all the ways. She's always wonderful. But maybe a little bit unexpected right. Both of my children read the lottery in sixth grade. I'm wondering how you first encountered Shirley Jackson. I was thinking about that and in fact the somewhat sideways way that I read a story by her when I was very young. Probably eight or nine In it wasn't it wasn't fiction. It wasn't excerpt from life among the savages in a humor collection that I just had bookshelf Story About One of her children who comes home from school with the story about a very bad misbehaving child in the class who spoiler alert turns out to be imaginary and then I got older into high school. Later Collagen Reggie Jackson. It took a long time before I put together that that story that I had read many many times when I was a kid also was actually also by a this woman who's Adult horror. I really love right and we do. Kind of think of Shirley Jackson as as a writer of horror mystery stories This particular story afternoon in linen. Do you think it falls into that category. I do although not on the surface right anything. It's unsettling and maybe once we get into it. I can tell you the exact word that I think makes it a horror story but like everything that she writes. I think it's very funny and it's also very scary And I think this one in particular kind of the more you look at it. The scarier becomes an horror. Something that you're interested in in in your own work. Yeah absolutely And also that line between the scary and the funny the kind of I would say sort of discomfort that surrounds writing about dark or Tabu or unsettling subjects I love exploring not sort of my favorite And interestingly the story like the nonfiction when he brought up it it explores Darkness through the eyes of children. Exactly I think that's probably a big part of why it resonated with me because it hearkens back to that first day of read by her. Yeah we'll we'll talk some more after the story and now here's Kristen. Re Pension reading afternoon in linen by Shirley Jackson afternoon in linen long cool room comfortably furnished and happily-placed with hydrangea bushes outside the large windows on their pleasant shadows on the floor. Everyone in it was wearing linen. The little girl and the pink linen dress with a wide Blue Belt Mrs Cater Anna Brown linen suit and Galileo linen hat. Mrs Lennon. Who was the little girl's grandmother in a white linen dress and Mrs Caters Little Howard in a blue linen shirt and shorts like an alice through the looking glass? The little girl thought looking at her grandmother like gentlemen all dressed in white paper. I`Ma Gentlemen all dressed in pink paper. She thought although Mrs Lenin and Mrs Cater lived on the same block each other every day. This was a formal Paul and so they were drinking tea. Howard sitting at the piano at one end of the long room in front of the biggest window. He was playing humor. Ask In careful unhurried tempo. I played that last year. The little girl thought it's g Mrs Lennon Mrs Cater were still holding their teacups listening to Howard looking at him and now and then looking at each other and smiling. I still play that if I wanted to. The little girl thought when Howard had finished playing humor ask. He slid off the piano bench and came over and gravely sat down beside the little girl waiting for his mother to tell him whether to play again or not. He's bigger than I am. She thought but I'm older. I'm ten if they asked me to play the piano for them. Now I'll say no. I think you play very nicely. Howard the little girl's grandmother said there were a few moments of leaden silence. Then Mrs Cater said Howard. Mrs Lennon's spoke to you Howard murmured and looked at his hands on his knees. I think he's coming along very well. Mrs Cater said to Mrs Lennon. He doesn't like to practice but I think he's coming along. Well Harry loves to practice. The little girl's grandmother said she sits at the piano for hours making little tunes and singing. She probably has a real talent for music. Mrs Cater said I often wonder whether Howard is getting as much out of his music as he should? Harriet Mrs Lennon said to the little girl. Won't you play for Mrs Cater? Pre One of your own little tunes. I don't know any the little girl said. Of course you do hear her. Grandmother said I'd like very much to hear a tune. You made up yourself. Harriet Mrs Cater said. I don't know any the little girl said Mrs Lennon looked at Mrs Cater and shrugged. Mrs Cater nodded mouthing By and turn to look proudly at Howard. The little girl's grandmother set her lips firmly in a tight sweet smile. Harriet dear. She said even if we don't want to play our little tunes I think we ought to tell Mrs Cater that music is not our forte. I think we ought to show her a really fine achievements in another line. Harriet she continued. Turning to Mississauga has written some poems. I'm going to ask her to recite them to you because I feel even though I may be prejudiced. She laughed modestly even though I probably am prejudiced that they show real merit well. For Heaven's sake Mrs. Gator said. She looked at Harriet pleased. Why dear I didn't know you could do anything like that. I'd really love to hear them. Recite one of your poems from Mrs Cater. Harriet the little girl looked at her grandmother at the sweet smile and it misses cater leaning forward at Howard sitting with his mouth open and a great delight growing in his eyes. Don't know any. She said Harriet. Her Grandmother said even. If you don't remember any of your poems you have some written down. I'm sure Mrs Cater will mind if you read them to her the huge merriment that had been gradually taking hold of Howard suddenly overwhelmed him poems. He said doubling up with laughter on the couch. Harriet writes poems. He'll tell all the kids on the block. The little girl thought I do believe Howard's Jealous Mrs Cater said. Aw Howard said I would write a poem that you can make me. Write a poem if you tried.

What if what? Okay okay. Okay okay all right. The war there was there was a singer. Nia People's right okay. Maybe in had a crush on her and he's trying to woo her. So it's so he's like he's got to do that before he can run out and get the car in the rain. So it's like Courtney Kardashian Korkor Court court car. Dan Kardashian but take advantage in a positive Dan Car Gashi and I'm I'm concerned that so I guess that I didn't say up at first and this is completely on us.

"The funniest people alive. Mr Forte is not gains extra points. I now I disagree. But it gains extra points with the with You know style guide formality the New York Times referring to you Mr Forte. But Yeah mcgrew was really brutally received. I'll say I thank God my I I I will go ahead and say as my my friend Jordan. God bless him saw the movie in a in an early screening a pre release screening and said. Oh my God mcgrew so funny you have to go see Gruber and I went and saw mcgrew Bor and I. I cried with laughter. I was one of the funniest one of the most laughing I've ever done in a movie theater But it was a box office bomb and jet. Broadly poorly reviewed. Not Universally but broadly. Oh I would say I would say I would argue that okay Certainly there were a lot of places that gave it horrible reviews but there were some very good reviews from respected critics You know Peter Travers loved it and I can't remember the other people but I I would say I wouldn't. I was actually happy that it it was not skewered as much as it could have been like. You know you go to rotten tomatoes and you know there's Catholic mothers digest or whatever that's reviewing and that's part of the hundred percent is like well. Yeah of course. Of course this is not a movie and I am. I was raised Catholic so so I knew specifically I knew this was not for Catholic Brethren. You had tried putting a celery stick in your body at Sunday school. Yeah but it did not fly attacks certainly certainly that you know that the there were bad reviews and understand that I I loved the movie and proud of the movie and I think that I I would say that. I think a lot of the people who reviewed it. You could tell who wasn't going to give it a chance in the first place you'd go through any go. Oh this person never was going to give it a chance or maybe didn't even watch it or like you. Just there's so many things about you. Could you know they would make a joke about you? Know why would you do you know something about how review in a way that made it seem like it? Was these the SNL sketch where it the movie had? Nothing to do with the scat says like wait did you. Do you see the movie. This was not this repetitive romp of explosions over and over again. I I don't know it. You know people are going to review it how they want to and you know a o Scott Review it. Yeah sure fine I. I don't know I disagree and and I don't i. I don't know that I would have trust in his reviews of comedy movies To be honest or or you know and it's fine review if that's how you feel that's fine He was wrong. I think he's wrong. But you know I wrote the actual movies. So it's GonNa. It's definitely going to be up my alley because it's all geared to Scott. You're wrong Jesse Thorn from NPR. Say That I'd WanNa sit next to him at a dinner party. It sounds like I know. It doesn't sound like a fan but I imagine that having that having that kind of deeply mixed reception to the film Is in a way in its own way galvanizing like I also thought I don't know. Anchorman was very funny. I don't know what is a good example of a well reviewed bridesmaids bridesmaids very well reviewed super. Funny I also thought it was super funny Bridesmaids isn't as important to my personal identity. As mcgruder is in part because mcgruder was divisive. Just as like I don't know I love both the movie babe and the movie babe pig in the city like so. Those are two movies that I really loved. But you'll hear me talk a lot more about babe pig in the city because it was reviled by many and I think unfairly so I think it's just as wonderful as babe it just different Is Gruber kind of like your rush? Yes it's like. You feel like it because there are some people who are super pro at some people are very anti. So you're like it gives you it it. It's a real thrill but I imagine that when you make a movie like that what you get is You know certain people certainly avoiding their gaze in the immediate aftermath but many people like texting you in saying look I saw a groover it ruled you know what I mean I I will for sure we do not or at least I don't WanNa drag your men John This but my I've always thought like I. I'm not trying to make something for you know for everyone. I'm trying to make something that I would wanna see. There's something that I would like so you know. Certainly it makes sense that a ton of people wouldn't like it too. But you know I feel like when you don't what with you water it down and try not watered down but but if you try to try to think too much about Oh. This joke wouldn't work. 'cause some people might think this gross served in You. Think too much about what people might not like. Just go through. Make yourself happy and if you're doing that the product is going to show how much you like it and and I don't know I it. Does that make sense? I I feel like I'm doing a bad job of of Putting words together I mean I think your passion for it is evidence and your colleagues Who created it with you is evidenced by the fact that it's now ten years later and you know you had a network television show for awhile and like in that ten years. It's clear that the three of you who created this film have really focused a lot of your career juice on either making a sequel to the film making now now. It looks like there will be a a television sequel to the film You know it's it's it's you know. If this works out it will be a dream come true because we just had so much fun doing it we. It was another situation like last man on earth in that. Not not the hard work part of it. It was this was. We just got to work with the part. That is very much like last man on earth is the people involved in the making of the mcgurk movie were fantastic and it was just this really magical experience of doing this thing with a bunch of people you love so we just have been. Wanting to get that group back together obviously. It's you know people are on different shows that we can't get the whole group together but you know it's it's just exciting to get to work with people that you like and have a good time and you know it. If I'm just very excited to hopefully be in that position I wanNA play a Saturday night. Live sketch that you did where you I think pretty much. All the all the setup this is that you are a kid competing in a television. Spelling Bay. Word is business. Could you repeat the word please business? Could you use it in a sentence place business? I'm in the insurance business. Could you spell the word place? No could you repeat the word place? The word is business business B. R. D..

Christian success was short-lived none of his subsequent records even made it to the charts. Yes everyone does call him. When he winter and lobster team etc wrong will forte. Welcome to Bullseye and I so enjoyed extraordinary. Thank you very much. It's funny it when I'm when I'm listening without a visual component and I it the the conceit of this movie is basically. I play a character data. Sorry I'm jumping right into this APP. I play a character who was who had one huge hit and then a washed up old rockstar and I want another hit so I sell my soul to the devil. Basically and movies movies. About this woman Maeve Higgins who tries to come after me but but there's always a little suspension of disbelief in watching any kind of movie. But when I heard that to believe that that was a huge hit is like oh I sing la La la but I guess you know I was GonNa say song that I didn't think should have been ahead was ahead. I don't want to be mean to anybody. I mean you get the pleasure of in this film wearing some truly glorious. Your character lives in a castle. Yes you get to wear some castle appropriate garb. In the film and do some nice some really cool prancing that I really enjoy. The word was great because a lot of satanic robes and stuff like that but but it was kinda cold when we were making this and we were in this You know castles in Ireland. Don't have great heating systems so so it it was nice to stay warm and and Yeah it all worked. There are some multi multi scarf systems. Going a real. It's a real steven. Tyler meets Alister Crowley I guess were there any particular rockstars that you observed in preparing to play this character. Really do anything like that but the guys Mike. An end who directed and wrote the movie they. They kept talking about Chris. Berg and I was like you know lady in red and and feel like he had some other songs that were were popular. But that's the one he's most known for but He seemed like a very nice guy. So I don't know why they kept bringing up. You know him as this person to be pointed to a Satanist. I don't think he's a sameness now. He's maybe very religious. I don't know but still he's a saint and do you know that he's not a saying I know I I I will. I am open minded to everything because the another question that always comes up is do you believe in ghosts And well what the hell do I know? I don't know maybe I don't not believe in ghosts. I think too many people you know may make the just stand by this belief that they're not one hundred percent about but then they get real stubborn on it. I don't believe in ghosts because if ghosts were real. I don't think I could deal with that really but I. I really get freaked out. But that's the thing is I tend to believe that there might be goes some you know in some form or another and but they could be but you know it just like the movie shows there in. Just a little teeny things. It's not. It's not all do. It could just be ham ghost here. I'm going to help you with your day. You know Maybe my favorite joke in the movie. Have you ever had a bad dream after eating cheese? It's very easy for ghosts. It's very easy for ghosts to occupy the live cultures in Geez. There's so much little fun stuff in fact when they sent me the script they sent along with the script. This Thing that they are put together like a three minute clip. A three minute short. That is made to look like an old videotaped show. It essentially is the very beginning of the movie if you go and see the movie Which is Maeve Higgins father? Used to you know he'd do this series where he would kind of explain the talents. Which were you know? Basically the talents were your abilities to you know. Interact with ghosts and stuff like that so so in this. It's you know it's explaining how Gosar everywhere they're in. You know you could anywhere you look. You could find them and and about ten seconds and talking about the different places you could find them and do you remember. He says how gravel like and there's just like a little spare. You know one piece of gravel skittering along the driveway and and I was like just from that moment on. I hadn't even read this yet and I'm like I'm going to do this thing. Let's hear a little bit more from extraordinary where my guest will forte. Plays a one hit. Wonder Slash Tax Shelter Seeker Christian winter who signs a deal with the devil? So part of his plan is a virgin sacrifice and he has gotten himself a virgin in the film but he goes into his sacrificing area. While he's waiting for the blood moon. He finds that the Virgin is now in two pieces and the two pieces are basically the top third in the bottom third of the Virgin and He's he's pretty upset about it. We find out that the fault for this lies with Claudia. His wife Who's played by the very funny Cloudy Authority? I want her exploited. So we'll walk yet. I just sacrifice her tomorrow night. The third one can only happen. Then she'll have to procure another virgin. I said sorry. She is so funny very funny and so cool too because she she plays my wife so we were on the same schedule. There were very few scenes that that I was in that. She wasn't or that she was in that. I wasn't In fact I think it was everything except for one scene. We're together so we'd have the same days off and we would go out and and just you know hang around. Ireland is really fun to get to know her and she's a fantastic person and it's just so funny. God a just had a great time. You mentioned how hard he worked on your Sitcom last man on Earth Yup There were three creators of the show of whom you were one. Two of them almost immediately upon creating the show became the most successful Action Comedy writer producers in Hollywood after they made the lego movie and You were you became the basically the the sole showrunner of the show along with being its star. I can't imagine how much work it was to star in a network television Sitcom. Where if it's working. You're making literally almost two dozen episodes a year while also writing or supervising. The writing of all of those. It was so insane it was just. It was a crazy amount of work. I never knew what went into doing a show and I came up as a writer and so But but you know I got the SNL job. Before before I was that high up the ranks that you were involved in too much production stuff so so You know so So I do all this stuff. I agreed to be the show runner at first just thinking. Oh well you know it's my show. I'm a control freak. I wanted to turn out the way a wanted to but but had no idea what I was getting myself into and it was the most amount of it just crazy amount of work. Because you know you'd you'd be for while you're just writing and you're trying to bank as much material as you as you can but then production starts And so you have to be especially for this show. I'm in. I was in everything in the beginning. Because it was just me and then Scholl Kristen Schaal And then there were like three people. But you're in everything and I mean they don't want to show you. This of the show to be clear. Is that a virus has destroyed the human race in initially. You believe yourself to be the only survivor. Eventually you find a couple of other survivors. Yeah yeah but like basically especially in the beginning. The camera is always on. You know like there's no. There's no be story where another guy from. The office is stuck in the elevator. Or something. So that your offscreen for seven of the twenty three minutes of the show. Yeah it's just you. Yeah and then and then even later on when when more people came in and there were a.

Struggles along the way and life in general in the pot Gill Beta from comcast ventures on the pod Gill shares what. He thinks the key to all his successes and then we go deep on his pretty awesome journey. Let's get into it Gil. Thanks so much for being on the Alex. Thanks invited me. Looks like we're GonNa have a good time today. Yeah I mean we've already been bantering going back and forth here. It's always like we have such a conversation. I'm like oh now I don't see anything more. Let me let me hit the red button. I wrote to say oh like we said before. And that's usually how it goes. The listeners. Love that so comcast ventures genesis ventures. We'll get into all your venture capital stuff. You got going on today. But like when I ever venture capitalist I haven't met with one and yet that said Oh I knew I wanted to be a VC. When I was a kid do you is I did not I have a technical background so I love Computers Program Computers Earth Way back in high school and college? I studied computer science and Decided that I wanted to program computers and some of the first ten years of my career was all about Being software engineer for a companies large and small I helped develop l. up a part of the UNIX operating system. So something you know you know really down and dirty and then also Develop applications locations financial branch automation. Applications did did the full stack Then I founded my first company which was an ad Tech Company Company and I was the founder CTO Then that company exited founded another company and then after that second company I had an opportunity to go into venture so it was a series of accidents decisions But I've been in venture for eleven years now and and having a great time so let's let's stay in the early days for a few questions at least where. What is this like equation? Technology this entrepreneurship side of you'd that come from your parents your parents entrepreneurs like do you want to work for a big company yourself like what. What is that inside of you? That kind of pushed you that way. My parents were the consummate entrepreneurs alcohol they neither of them had a college legit education. I'm not even sure whether they graduate high school But a so. They started number of businesses in the in the clothing industry Where they would sell clothing They had stores and all and I worked in those stores and saw a You know at age of Eight nine ten eleven working in the store selling women's clothing and They were very entrepreneurial. They grew their business from from one store to many stores And so was always in my blood and all during in high school and College I was starting a bunch of businesses and of course malt. Most of them failed But was always thinking about it about problems that need to be solved about opportunities markets And you know I remember back in my early days. I I used to keep a list of of ideas of companies that I would start at which I which I advise every entrepreneur to do is just can't keep a running list of of ideas and keep right reprioritising them which ones you think are less possible now or more possible. which ones are you more more or less excited about And funny A while back I. I look back at that list. And this list was from from the eighties and Their ideas on it. I actually think are still good ideas today and I challenge some of viewer. Your listeners may be to To do one of these businesses. A one of them was. I don't even was possible. But it's popcorn that POPs in the shape of an animal so like animal crackers for popcorn now so the margins on popcorn or probably nickel Lord. I but wouldn't you pay extra if the popcorn was in the shape of a zebra elephant or a lion or something that was one of my early ones. Some of them are crazy. Some of them not not so crazy and all But I always knew that I was going to to start a business and So I was just waiting for the right idea. I mean I love hearing about this because speaking of business side ideas starting businesses and all requires practice. It's not like you just have some light bulb moment and it's like i. I didn't think any businesses knife out of my very first one and this is going to be the one I'm GonNa go do and it's like it's a muscle that requires like use use. Yeah I I it you put it perfectly Alex that you have to be practicing you have to be an entrepreneur is not just somebody who starts a company it is somebody who is constantly continuously in that process of starting a company and then one of them actually sticks and you end up doing that for many years. It's also so feeling pain points and maybe maybe it's easier to start off if you don't have the list you've never thought of a business. Just to think of problems takes a long time to drives the airport or wait in line at security or whatever it is right down problems on and you can try to think of business solutions to those problems will. Maybe some. Don't have a solution. Maybe maybe some do I think it's a AH. There's a parallel though an opposite universes between entrepreneur and a comedian a comedian goes through life. Making all these observations of of Oh like a while waiting at the airport or whatever and they turned it into a joke or life. Experience and an entrepreneur makes those same mob's rations but instead of trying to make it funny. They actually try to solve that problem. I like that a lot of great one. Okay so you're this entrepreneurial kid growing up starting stuff left and right you go to college rate. Yes where do you go to college. Cal State Northridge California. My Business Partners to oh great from L. A.. I am from La and the clothing store was in La yes what part of La The clothing store was actually in Inglewood. we lived in La Proper and then eventually moved to Beverly Hills. Oh Great We'll talk about that later. Okay so so you you you gotta see sign and and when you're there you're still you do still have this like entrepreneurial passion because I was like you I was starting businesses left and right growing up and then I went to school and I I said I went to Pennsylvania and now it's like everyone's like I want to be an investment banker an accountant or a consultant on my. Oh there's like these prestigious jobs that society is telling me that I should go get I mean that was my path but in hindsight I was like wash continued starting businesses and your own the biggest dirt farm and by now or something but You get caught up kind of like what all your friends are doing. Did that happen to you. I was don't let any of my kids here this but I was not focussed on school at all. School to me was something that I knew I had to do that. I knew would look good on my resume But it's unless it was fun and interesting. I wasn't super engaged so during high school where I founded and one of my first companies called Mind Games which was A video game for the original Apple Computer so I would spend Days and nights and programming The game and maybe showed up for class maybe didn't and so in high school. My grades were marginal may be. I had a C. or a C. plus average I think in college. Maybe I opt it to A. B. or B. minus But I knew that the grades that was not going to be my taken And I have a lot of respect for those folks who are focused on maximizing their the university experience and I think that's that's super important for me adjust didn't click and so even during high school and and in College I was I was starting companies and probably migraine sufferers. It's I mean I think it's a good testimony so you were able to realize that school is not what I want to be focusing on I want to be focusing these other things because like I kind of feel like I was similar to you. I didn't school but did it anyway because they gave all pressure's it's like oh you need to do this and I should have just been. I mean not should've aminals my path until sure so I'm actually kind of envious of you that you had that south awareness to say. Yeah this is not not really focusing. Nobody has ever asked me what my GPA was not unless your like in the top the commodity And nobody asks you what an anybody's I volunteered it. Because I'm mullahs proud that I actually you know did not get as and BS that. I'm actually a C.. Student and was able to do quite well Um mm-hmm and so for all those people out there who maybe are focused on other things or school isn't their Forte They're still lots of opportunity out for those people

Josh Kear on writing Before He Cheats before he knew Carrie Underwood, getting Taylor Swift on Highway Dont Care and taking shots with stars at the Grammys.
"I was I do this you'll see what comes around to you but I I do this motivational speech where I go and talk to places and there's a whole thing that I do where I talk about how you don't always have to be working to be moving forward you can just be listening at times you can be president in what's happening around you and I tell a story about how axl rose from guns and rose this is sitting around and listening to slash play the opening this guitarist furniture and I want to do exactly because we're on the story and he's playing guitar riff and feels like that's interesting what is that slashes I just playing a scale basically implying the scale and and this is not a song I'm just warming got because we're about to go into the studio and so act like well that's that's interesting is that I wrote this poem for my girlfriend keep playing that and so- slashes the plan the song an actual reading this poem and it's like this is it this this is the song like I'm just he was just sitting in the room and it was sweet child of mine that's how that's how the song get started that's great so slashes sitting here just playing this on his guitar and then inside of the bridge of the song he doesn't know where to go with the song he doesn't have it written because back then they were just GonNa Studio and get totally wasted in and record so if you remember the bridge the song he starts going where do we go now where do we go so he's leaving he literally didn't know where to go with the songs crazy it's awesome and so how how I bring this up start with you is you know that's an interesting way to kind of get into a song ever sit in a room at seventy sticking around with something and you go well I really wasn't planning to go here but I have something that could work I have This page after page after page after page of titles and ideas yeah That I have always kept I started keeping it in college and so typically when I walk into a room comedy starts doing that I don't say anything I just kind of opened my file and starts I call him a book of spells because we call it that once in a in in a group setting she's like oh he just goes through his book of spells so I actually titled on on my desktop my little books spells or click on that started kind of going through stuff almost you know most of it just doesn't work for every piece of music obviously you just can sit you kind of go through you can go through and go through and say finally go let me that and I start throwing things into the room that there's that point at the beginning of every writing appointment where as far as lyrical ideas you're either going to be the absolute hero you're gonNA look like a Moron I've kind of always prided myself on being fearless when it comes to throwing ideas in the room and just kind of going well I took all that time to come up with them let's see if they're any good there's only one way to find out can you us song where you're going through the book of spells and you're like this might actually be something with what you're doing now you mean with Mute where the music was already going you're flipping through and you you go well I could actually attach this we could go somewhere with it and it turned out to be something you know aw man sorry like running through songs in brain yeah run through typically Some it detracts and things most of the time I come in with like pieces of music fully at least something somewhat realized or at least enough of a concept the trying to match it to somebody that's something already going isn't perfect so even then a lot of times the musical change ever so slightly it's not usually an exact match I don't have a slash story do you ever wish I did because what I find when you get into a room you say you go in us if I'm writing something comedy wise and someone comes in you don't know people it's your little timid at first and not so much because is of your ideas but because you don't everyone's sensibilities writer first date oh you dance yeah you're kind of all right we'll and I've found that when someone comes in and they're totally fearless it actually relaxes the whole room right like it's actually a nice start to the whole because you're like Oh okay if they're going to be an idiot and idiot and maybe isn't the word but it was the best yeah and I feel at times if I do that it actually makes the room a more productive room if I just go out and do the most bonehead things sometimes on purpose uh-huh it makes the room better because everybody goes oh why was an idiot I won't be near as big a minute let me start suggesting my ideas and that's actually the whole point of of the reason I do it don't often assume that the ideas that I'm gonNA start throwing out our what we're going to work on and I don't really care part of it is just getting any kind momentum going and in getting the comfort zone opened up because once somebody starts talking starts saying hey what about this what about this what about this everybody else feels a little more open to going through their own stuff especially if you've never worked together that first time where it's like we're saying it's a dance and kind of your everybody's trying to figure out their role where they fit in what they're supposed to be doing I just I I love the visit and I love the hang and all that comes beforehand it's great to catch up and all that but at some point something's got to happen and there's no reason for us all to be hanging out so that's my way of being like all right let's get some work done come on a resume you just a little bit and we'll go into some stories here but fourteen number ones just a few of them Luke Bryan most people are good I bring that up because I was a three week number one a rarity almost a Dodo bird of country music songs those days yeah I would say the white tiger now dodo birds extinct maybe the white tiger of country music three week number one yeah they're getting more and more it seems like I was asked on the red carpet last week at cmt they said hey what what was your song of two thousand nineteen and not that I would listen to it the time alone but like I said well my song I think that was the most important to the format and that people have really gravitated to because of the message was those people are good and that's what came to my mind that was my visceral emotional reaction to what was this song of two thousand nineteen that's awesome so congratulations one on three week number one also a lot of people went and it's nice to just like like have that song I needed that Song I did most of the time when when you meet people socially and they ask you they find that your rent is so what are you right you know obviously they mean rock pop country whatever and I smile on say I write fiction 'cause that's kind of what I do I sit around and just generally make up stories and things in that particular case that was written in two thousand sixteen during the presidential election or the build up to the election between that in some of the other things we're also going on in the world at the time I was really kinda depressed I mean just watching some things and kind of went you know what it's not all bad it's really not all bad and I I showed up my studio that day I was writing with Ed Hill and David Frazier who I've written it's close to twenty years and luckily at we again we know each other so well that I kind of know where they are in their lives as well and it just it was the right right idea for the right group of people and I desperately needed that song I still find that when sit around play that song when performing it's it's still takes me back to that place that I desperately need to be these days talk me through the life of after you wrote the song because we know the end product we've seen the manufacturing of a three week number one it's been through we've seen it then great but ride it and that's a it's been a couple of years now a few years now actually yeah so what happens right after you write the song do you feel like it could be something and where does go and it just kind of talk me through that so we we wrote the song I was the only one I just sat and play guitar while you're writing I was the only one plane during the writing and then when the other guys left I stayed right there in my studio and built up the record from scratch and it sounds almost identical you ended up hearing on the Luke record did they use any of the now of your track now they didn't use much wreck I think they even might change the key and they cut with a live band and was playing individual bits and pieces and Jeff didn't need my tracks a pretty obviously and finished it up I think got I spent the rest of that day part of the next day finishing up the demo turned into the publisher that is usually for me where my contact with the song essentially ends you spent a lot of time with it did you feel you because you spent almost two days did you feel like it was a two day worthy song or is that just normal process for anything that you've written if I'm the one doing the demo it takes me wrong I'm just not fast I'm I'm a slow build when it comes to to building out a demo and even beyond that typically I'm not great at them it's not really my forte I'll do them is when I'm the one that ends up being the person in the room that has that skill set but I prefer having a Jesse Frazier I've been writing one hundred hundred twenty songs year professionally for the last twenty five years
"forte" Discussed on You Made It Weird with Pete Holmes
"Do get guitars ultra that can be doctors that that'd be lawyers another good horn but do not grow up to be and that was that one they look like one last time Oh my God but I sang the cocktail you did Ah yes now here's something that seems silly but I think it's helpful did you you're doing your knowledge and it has the Word Kakinada one hundred thousand times money yes did you ever go I can't it's a show where I couldn't say cock or you're just like I'm just going to be funny it was just I'm just GonNa voted out there yeah it was just something I love doing it was it was like I just WanNa be comfortable and I I don't think they I think that was fine no I didn't even think about that so it's more did I'll tell you we tried we almost tried to do it and of course you can't say Cox so it was like a bunch of euphemisms and I had a pin in my stomach because it was like a a gobble number my face bean I chew Dong from up it was like it just wasn't the same and I was like I was really the only time that I was there it was my fourth or fifth episode and it was really the only time I've ever thought oh I hope this goes really bad because I just it would be taking my favorite sketch and just turning it into something different and it was just a joke yeah you wanted for the integrity of the bet for it to not work I've never heard of that but I understand it I mean because at first it was like Oh this might be right and then it was I was up there I was like no this won't be the same pleasure as waiting for some day some day they'll let you say cock on TV but I've always thought like that you know I don't know and did it not work well with Gob did well the definitely didn't do it oh they didn't do but we did it dress for oh I don't remember if it was like I don't remember it bombing super hard but I also enough to not make it also I think stuff the stuff that happens in the early part of it it's a lot of like you know and now a lot of people talking and stuff so it it you know it probably was sparse laughter laughter at little points so I think on many levels didn't make it but interestingly enough during the writers strike we we did SNL show at the theater in New York while we were just sitting around because we couldn't do because there was no writing going on so so we I did a show just for the hell of it I think it might have been a some kind of fundraising show maybe even fundraising show for like the a writer's Fund while people were not working any way we did it and I got to do it in the show the original God it was really yeah yeah when it went really well I have a very specific last man on earth question it's either going to be a great question or it's going to be like my Seinfeld Oxygen Ref okay I thought do you either a context when I the scene in in HBO's crashers that were the hardest for me when I was by myself it was just like just get a bowl of cereal and needed and I would have to like breathe and try and you like a dance off camera to try and loosen up my body and I'd try and do all these mental tricks to like forget that there was a sound guy and like fifty people in the room mm-hmm and really go like what do I do when I'm in my pajamas and I get a bowl of cereal like can I not find the camera like there's the your vanity wants to like find where the cameras in like face it so it gets the good poor of the milk and all that stuff so you the one of my favorite of all time is the last man on earth and I watched I was like what the fuck is going on here it was chaplaincy and brilliant do you have and if you don't I'll look bad you'll be fine was it hard for you to pretend to be alone when you and I both know they're seventy five people in the room that's a good question uh-huh I mean you're talking to balls and Lebanon's or toys and was it natural was it the old I for some reason I mean there were a million things hard about that show but that for some reason wasn't one of them was at that point we had spent so much time I'm writing and and writing the same we were so deep into the series and just living with that for months I don't know it it it was I also think because of the fact that you're actually having conversations because we we wandered in that castaway the Appalachian talking to all the balls yeah that that that kind of helps because I know exactly what you're talking about it I remember it was not unless man on earth but there was another thing that I remember the first thing that I had to do it was running the jump was this movie I didn't Ireland it was a complete drama and I I it was the first time I had done anything like that ads and so I was terrified and but I felt like okay we'll be over in Ireland nobody will ever see it unless it somehow turns out good and don't blow it and and the first day was something where had to do was walk to the other side of the room like walking somebody else's doing all the talking and I'm walking and I remembered going like I couldn't even remember how to walk yes because you're like Oh this is these guys are judging me now the only thing they have to judge on right now how is how I'm walking in here art if I don't walk correctly what if I fucked up walking and they started regretting casting me in this so it was it was so weird is this weird mental thing yeah my friend Chris there did clown school and I believe the first exercise they did which was really hard and took a very long time for everybody to get good at was walk out the whole classes there walk out on stage if the theater's empty and they would do it over and over and this master movement master clowning it was like the hardest thing in the world was to walk out as if no one was in the room his that's interesting you start performing he started like going to square up to the audience I'm GonNa it was so hard somebody I forget who was somebody told me to do math in your head I don't know if that worked but that's what I would do because you're thrown into this interesting situation where like one of the first things we shot on showtime's crashers was that I would walk around a corner and I'm just holding a bag and it's a long shot yeah and Jed appetite was directing and I was so in my van yeah crashers so keep going I so if any seen in HBO's crashers that I'm walking around I'm doing math in my head usually sevens seven multiplications trying to multiply forty nine seven and I'm like and move your mouth but that's how you look like you're not thinking how do I walk I'm not saying it's worked but it it got me out of my head enough yeah what does that interest doing what you've done Nebraska was amazing you're a great dramatic actor I haven't seen reminisce jump it's tiny it I I was turned into a really cool little movie but but it is this small Irish movie and so yeah I don't think a lot of people thought but a question that I love to ask people that have done so many things you have let's just do the speed it's called the speed round but that doesn't mean you have to be fast it just means what is the greater is lesson you've learned about blank and I'll say some categories but the first one I'm interested in is acting like is there some great acting advice you've been given or or what do you do you you help yourself act you know what they're in Nebraska Bruce Dern told me something about be just you just got to find the truth the beach scene yeah she's being the moment find the truth of it and it just sounded real actor Mumbo Jumbo Patenga more thought about it it it makes a ton of sense because it really translates to everything like even in stuff where you're doing big stupid comedy it's like the truth of that scene is to do is to react in this over the top way so it's like it just does make sense so so a lot of times you'll go like what's an example of like an example is in your in your as in one's head in my in my head as I'll do a scene sometimes yield nope go like Oh is this interesting home doing this and it's like but if the point is for it to not be interested I- it's like it's it's it becomes the truth is supposed to do for each moment it's like if you're supposed to walk across the the you know to over this way you don't WanNa walk in some weird way you just WanNa walk in a on Burt Lake just walkout a person talks like like that's like that clamping yeah registers because it's yeah you it's just trying to be you getting out of your head and not judging yourself and it's you know I'm still getting used to it I still have my moments where I feel like I do a great job and moments where I'm a piece of shit you know so so I that's what I worked with a lot of actor Comedians that were acting for the first time and I would always say the whole job is not to be embarrassed because I it's not too embarrassed that's exactly it yeah it's embarrassing and that's what Ted Danson somebody told me Ted Danson said there's here's tone down watching us and if I just started going how dare you talk to me that that's embarrassing it's embarrassing to suddenly be angry everyone knows you're faking I mean there's so many of it because it's like a it's embarrassing what if you're what if you do a bad job doing a bad job are people talking about how bad a job there's so many levels to over think and then and then it's also if you're doing if you really start to let doc access true emotions you feel like you're Pathak being vulnerable like you're like this is how people we're seeing how I actually act in these situations that feels like you're you're you're you're just giving away some secret totally it's it's hard to get used to madeleine whites who played my girlfriend in the third season is a true actor she's at theatre actor and she's incredible and would we sang the song I had a tweet and it had all these likes but very few retweets so I started seeing this kind of Paul Simon African choirs I'd start crying and I was like this is that somebody else that's Unbeliev that's another thing she'd get scary and she's she's a star she's incredible that's amazing that's a real actor over there doing math eight there's I mean I believe she's not I get the

"Dreams of my and that's not a fact that stomach growls be sure I'm being gentleman letterman and and but it was that's what I was gonna ask in stories like that there's usually an x factor where someone this is silly but like I was trying to sell cartoons at the New Yorker and I would re pitch every week I would hand in the ten new ones I was supposed to do that always be two or three are you sure and then Jack Ziegler the late Great jags Ziegler he was my Jack Black and I was like I think he literally said give the kid a shot and it was legal and they bought one that week so these are essential stories the repaid thing is can be okay I mean I wouldn't do it with with some piece of crap right would only do it for things sleep and he killed on the show it it it did very well in the show I gotta say I was I I would have kept going for probably another minute but it was the last sketch of the Christmas show and I knew that that we were I had looked up at the clock and knew that we were running on time and Neil Young's still had to play his young I don't want him to go out to the commercial break before this sketches on so I just feel like I I ended it earlier want but I would say if I was I was really excited that Lauren attract new it's kind of risky thing to ask and and there was another one called ginger in Franklin that I kept trying to without gender and this one I didn't hadn't done at the groundlings Chen it was this this setup you're setting up these these this couple had a friend who was single and they said Oh we met this wonderful person they love a lot of the same thing things you history and you know think they are just you'll really like this look is like the spin image of Benjamin Franklin but women and so I was frankly I even have the bald patch and when I so I didn't get any was it was really silly and it would do well you're playing a woman Jen Jamin Franklin yes Jen German I'm Jim Franklin in present day it was like President I love it so anyway we would I put it I must have put it up four times and then the last time there was a big fight between me and sat myers because seth came in and said like I wanted to put it up. and he said I forget he had said something about there being no response and says what am I best buds like I love him but it was tense because I was you know well then we then he said Oh it it kind of laid laid flat the room and because he was wearing the wrong we're we're in a different room but idea because what I anyway never even made it to a dresser and my my I'm always was with that wouldn't it be funnier in address rehearsal doesn't costume carry this quite a bit like I did this thing might the bed for sure any sketch might but at that point it's my eighth year on the cast clearly I care about this gach and I'm interested in it it's unwell enough at table reads even the fourth time around just give me a chance to do it in a dress rehearsal and then they'd still it just wouldn't do it over over again so finally sat on his show does a thing called second chance theatre and and this had the honor of being the first installment second chance theatre which was to do this this really dumb Njit Gentlemen Franklin workout on Earth at the time so I had to do with a beard and and it was really fun and it went really Al people enjoyed it but it it definitely like you would you'll never know how would have done it S. and L. Because for you know at at sets show you talked about it for like a whole segment so like you're always going to know the the emotions behind it and you're like there was a fight about this dumbs stupid thing and then it's just like doing it it's laughs are coming from Oh that's something that would have laughed at if I just saw this or if it's light as an ally orbits like Oh this is how could you have ever thought that this would have been yes I it so it was it was really fun to do but it's just stuff like that if I was a very very close friend of yours for your fiftieth birthday which is coming up so seth Meyers here's this which I'm assuming he will so I I we can't do we can't do your voice I would get a huge hundred dollar bill yeah framed but it has gendelman Franklin on that's a good gift a great gift the what have you I dish in with when you audition you remember I did L. Hoon which was a character that used to do the the groundlings for longtime I and then ended up he was like a to clueless politician who coincidentally was basically the same guy that's in the spelling bee sketch Dan and then I did this speed reader who was like a speed reader trying to to woo woman with as fast reading and so that was pretty fun we actually got to do that on the show to and then a prison guard wait is reading silently or aloud he'd just go he'd like sand you know he walked in next to this this woman sitting at a bar and he has this book and him loudly flops the book onto the the the bar and just goes in read like one hundred just read one hundred fifty pages critical light drooled then there was a prison guard what was his deal real like okay we're we're about so you know just some real over the top very Yali Yeah did a couple impersonations I did I addition twice because I came back and they said the second time well the BR I'll explain hit a burst time so it was mm-hmm Martin Sheen who I don't do a good Martin Sheen I just I was something like this maybe it's a little better that's good I said okay I this is Martin Sheen I've had a little bit of a cold so if I don't sound like myself it's because of that if I do sound like myself and good the Gold's going away and that was basically it and it's such a funny man Michael McDonald around it I was just last night we watched great British bake off and I was like why doesn't I'm always telling the judges that they're going to do something amazing right and then it doesn't do well I was like I was on that show it'd be like my my cake design is called ah complete disaster and the idea is that everything that can go wrong will go wrong so it's Ted with the kind of crumbling into each other and it's very dry inside and the national is too thick and then when you give it to you now that this is terrible but it's what you said you would do so well done that's really good oh my God it's the Gold Martin shaved that Michael McDonald in that was just like Michael McDonald I do I love singing so I was like oh Michael McDonald and I just want to do a little of my songs and then it was it was just uh you don't know me on your most who wait oh you took with what's the media mopey talk to a to z are going back and forth Komo be there and taking it to the streets and just like just like cutting in in and out of the songs jump points and it was Jayco that a playground bet you can do it's like you're spelling bee bet you like that's where it's like as long as I'm getting a laugh I can keep blowing into the flute right he's like if this is doing it for you I'll do it all it was just fun to do and then there was a final thing that was the thing I used to do at the groundlings which was this the groundlings sketch which I had to explain to them was okay for the purposes of this I'm one of those men on the street that's dressed all in gold gold face paint gold sequence close and just everything is covered in gold and I don't move unless somebody puts all right have a sketch I had this jar I'm sure I said this in a way shorter setup than this I have this jar that people put money in that's eight dollars make me move so a bunch of people have come by dropped in a dollar I do a little robotic movement and then and then finally at some point all those people get get bored of me take off go watch a sword swallowing down the way and then come while are all gone some person comes up and reaches in and grabs all the money out of the jar and and take off and just steals on my money and I'm frozen up there because they have not put a dollar in they've taken money out so I can't move so eventually the group back and in a kid you know somebody puts a dollar in and I go food robot walk off to try to see where this person is but they're long gone so get back up on the pedestal and I'm Kinda crying a little bit frozen frozen but tears or they are coming out would you cry no I can't do that and I'm not good actor but when you're explaining would you do the moment where they took the money and you'd be frozen and upset is that would in the sketch to them I was just explaining this I think I think it was way quicker because the SA- what eventually happens some kid says to his dad tap widest looked so sad and he says I don't know maybe give them a dollar he'll tell you and maybe if you give them two dollars he'll tell you in song two dollars in this song comes out a sing so eighty one oh I'd love to Jersey because there's a man because a man made a gold does mean commit out of money but the calling I've found is to give people pleasure during credibly process real product movement that's why I called back to the streets to help me make ends meet at work real hard to feel that Jar Minna Bad apple ruins the bare room or to go for care but through all the pain agreement I bear it or go but I'm leaving Golden Dream 'cause anyway slice it we're all on the same team Gano everybody and then as they continue to sing everybody starts to surround me and sing with me and like everyone super excited and then as you'll see the tide turns and then little by little they leave but song content they they leave and I'm just up there continuing but here's the that's the song 'cause then you slice it we're on the same team Camano everybody of ood Dewan for care but through all the pain grin and bear it or does of gold but don't make me no saint because Guy the secret circle for my face paint oh I got a blue red there so cockermouth as being everybody are too acid Cocker Ashby for matinees pain oh as being a sir Irma Pane a cer- take Verma Spain as pain God phase pain phased pain call and phase vein got got back out these paying Fees Bay thank God got his big cock they think are face bank mccart together at last Ena Heavenly Union ca-car Kakuma phase just keeps going so that was the very last thing I did for the snl addition and then then kind of sadly scrambler may staff together and walk out and and learn happy to be there kind of by the entrance and I think Tina was down there and the different producers who were watching Mike Shulman Akram Shirley was there a couple of people but I I said hello to Lawrence to said or allies was sorry for all the Cox and then left and then the next thing I knew I I heard that I got the job and at the time you turned it down the time turns down the guy can't do it which is a cocky Cox wow and then the next year they called an and said have you rethought it I said yes I would like to come they said okay we'll we'll just just come do an audition and but but you're good to go just for you know just to get you on I don't know what whatever so I had to come in that time I did I did a shortened and abbreviated version but I didn't do the impersonations I did Joni Mitchell and I said this is I'm Joni Mitchell in I'm I've recently done a an album of covers and so have a cover for you.

"I had a lot of friends what I'm saying is that opening the door saying we'll tell me about the fact that you're very funny and when I met your mom remember you and you don't get sweaty but if I had to move around a little bit I'd be Oh my God wearing sweat leander stand the sex and Macgregor's so funny was that and are those those are big joys thank you very much I've shot sex scenes and I remember John was like you should like it should be like really sincere weird like we didn't use it yeah and so I didn't I thought that I wasn't going to be able to make it she had asked me couple months in advance because I was worth on something and then the night before I found out that I was going to be able to to make it so I scrambled to put together something I asked my mom if she would be heard of it she said Okay and so basically what I did was I wrote this whole bit where I was training my mom to take over in case I died at some point and so somebody could go do comedy at these charity events and basically she went up to the stage not knowing a fucking thing and I give you a little the little addendum to the story I was like I don't know if this is GonNa work I don't know what I was basing it on I didn't know either you're terrified because your mom kept saying I don't know if the is GonNa work 'cause she didn't know what it was and I said deval while you were going out not in a mean way I was like no just like in a sweet way I wanted to go while I was reading and I was like I'm not sure and it crushed crushed you were so like fake they're so clearly this warmth and affection between you guys Oh yeah we're we are super tight and then you're going like I can't even do it but you were basically directing her very harshly Oh yeah because she was one of the fun things was yelling at her because it's very therapeutic and I don't mean any of it but it's still fun because it's like live you can blame it on whatever so it's it's really it was this kind of thing where like we pretended that she had written these you saw this the people listening I pretended that you know like right an opening thing where you try to you know to just say something nice to the audience to get board mom takes out this thing that I've written say so take out that thing that you wrote the first one and she's like what's up pieces shed no what smelly shit fuck heads or something like that your mind is perfect in the I don't want to swear but she did it like that perfect balance she yeah of mom I don't WanNa say this that leg then of course right afterwards I get to yell mom what are you thinking that so white you can't call your audience's pieces of Shit but but so one of my favorite things was in the very beginning after I do kind of set up of how I'm GonNa Bring her out she comes out and yelling at her lack of energy and like how she should be waving to the crowd right before the verdict come out right before she came on and she said should I bring my purse out a rape right before I went out to start it she said sh I bring my purse out and I'm like I almost said no don't bring your purse out mom but I said Yes for sure bring your purse out so what you want out with the person I'm like what do your fucking purse eh she's such a delight me so happy I'd like to I don't know I don't know I think maybe my mom in the right mood to do that but not in the way there was like a familiarity that I was just very mom just right and it was like I just said trust me I don't know if this'll work but just it'll be fun it's only you know two hundred fifty people that Largo theaters just perfect size just the fun the perfect size safe safe space I tell me all the time I had this dream I remembered vividly where I was in a magical place it was like a summer camp and there was snow and icicles everywhere and there were these different rooms and you could go in every room was just like a perfect room and you could go in in the dream I was doing new material it was like actual new material crush egg and I was like that's what Largo is that's that's I it's like one of the greatest things I career is that I get to perform there it's my favorite though it's great it's so magical so wonderful I loved Flanagan are planning impression is always like talking to Zach and there's always like Zach Alvin thank or like you'll go like Zach kick tissue off in the audience in planning I'll just be like I bought them shoes how are you you'll tell her Princeton he's like funny story I was swingers Cafe and Prince Washington and he says hey planning and then he just knows everybody and everybody loves him and he's very casual about it you can't he's like talking to Paul and you're like who Paul Thomas Anderson and pull he showed me the rough cut of there will be blood and it was four hours long one of the best things I've ever seen he's like Jesus Christ he had that you're going to tell the story how it was a multiple Paul reference so it's like I was talking to Paul Paul Thomas Anderson then he said that Po Po Cardi is just like all these calls all of falls silly being growing up were you silly with your mom as a kid what was that relate land and maybe a a bit loud and I would always push things what do you mean like don't do that walk over here and then I'd take a step that kind of thing take another stab and I'd take one more wait I have to say likely loved they when they put me in my room they'd always say that I didn't give a shit because I just loved hanging out with myself and doing dumb little things so that was hard to punish me me too I love being in my room and you and I did something similar I read somewhere that you would do radio shows like you'd record radio shows how how're you doing that like what what were you doing do you remember what they were I feel I still have the tapes of some of them really yeah it's like this it's and it's me kid we'll fourteen go real GONNA be group one of my childhood friends who haven't seen in years and maybe since high school this Guy Matt brokeback I know man and we would you know Matt Yeah you're the only person on the show that got that joke so if anybody's out there knows Matt brokeback tell him to tell him to to robots Arizona to love to reconnect to reconnect. Yeah it's been years yeah I've tried looking looking for but haven't found him on social media maybe is on there has been a couple of years since I've looked but while ago but you would do the shows with Brobeck yeah did you record these things together and just like it would all it would always be weird little radio plays or we're like a fake game show or something like that yes me too a lot of them were fart related I mean for sure a lot of art religious we I'm not putting that on that that was that was you forte class front of my that was at the very tip of my brain always when I got a hand held tape recorder we would me and my friend earn who did this podcast we would call each other and if we had a fart would put the phone to our butts and Fart and then just come back but then got funnier that's funny it gets funnier that we would fake them but it was so clear that we were faking them because they'd be like an let's hold on Friday it was real that wasn't real I heard you laugh and they was one of my finger world and would you the high speed dubbing to make ourselves sound like the chipmunks so we'd do a radio show Oh really slow yeah and then with speed it up and then would record the speed up and it would it would made everything ten times funny that's amazing it was Super Fun yeah so what was the whoa from playing alone room and doing things for the Fam- what was the first for a forte forte into like Oh performance like yeah I mean I took a an Improv class in seventh grade uh-huh and that was really fun but but it wasn't like show I'm taking this because I want to go into comedy and you know it was just oh that sounds like fun and did that and I think we did it show at the end of the semester short-form like freeze and stuff just all like tiny little games it was it definitely was not long form yeah it was like a lot of you know the machine game where you go and each person's going beep beep and it okay go out and be another part of this a lot of stuff like that or like sitting in a car and a porcupine just got in the backseat from what I remember and then I didn't do anything until that would have been eighth grade by the way and then sophomore year I took a drama class but but never did any plays this is sophomore year in high school didn't didn't try didn't try there was a scene night that that that you could do for the drama class but that was different than a play so I did I think it was it was either Tom Sawyer huck been a did a scene from that and it was just all model not just all the N. word yes aches it's lettera churn well then senior year IMC to talent show with two friends so that was really I would say the first chance to we write and perform because the other things we're all just like you know classic stuff but this was we wrote stuff that was very letterman conspired like we came through slices cheese to the audience like stuff like that it was almost direct ripoffs of Letterman or just the real in the spirit of Letterman Letterman was always he's your guy all-time guys letterman SNL. I mean just you know list is mentioned coming in hot from Pete was he took us to see letterman out we didn't get in but we got him what yeah that's Great Dad GD yeah we're at what point was the CBS by then this was Oh that's a good question Sullivan Theater where year God he would have been ninety five I started ninety seven quick little nine month now yeah I I mean there's such lure he's such a don't look at the man behind the curtain sort of well it it was a couple of different floors and we're up on the four if I remember correctly taint and he's the floor below so we wouldn't see a lot of them unless you're one of the heads of one of the departments like mailbag head had to go down talk to him and so the Times I would see it was perfectly nice just wouldn't see them very often unless you were in a very low level person I did not last too long there 'cause I just I thought I was going to be really good it just like Oh this is this guy created sensibility right essentially like like men came in I was just like it just wasn't yeah I do but let me fill me so I don't have to go back to it I just was not good at it and it was it was tough psychologically because it was like Oh I'll never work again I just yeah that's hard got fired from this house stores you got the job Oh you got it from a random so terrified like the period in between when I got the job and I started the job I wanted to be fifty years so I could just enjoy live in that Oh my God I got the job but not have to actually do it because it was terrifying in the room pitch and jokes out loud or you at a desk alone sort of grinding with it the headline at a at a desk alone really not the forte forte thrive with peeps. Oh for sure for sure and also getting to sell your own material is a big thing 'cause I don't think I could write something down and just be like read it and weep like get this to the big cheese that will throw at the audience but it was it was tough because you wouldn't get a lot of feedback bless you thank you you wouldn't you wouldn't get a ton of feedback and this is not like I'm not shitting on the place there for Bait I mean well that would have been helpful to get a little more feedback from your higher ups so you can know because a lot of times you turn stuff into this you know there's this little you might hand it to the your boss at some point but a lot of times you just put it in a little rock on the door because he's I mean it's a tough job being the head writer is just top you're flying around all over the place so much dressed put on a show a new show every single day and especially you know Letterman is notoriously you have you know a very very a perfectionist I guess yeah but not he doesn't it the fallon reputation or just like good thanks so much yeah cool I'll give it a try he was the man on the hill yeah and I I don't know that stuff from from my own is you know you just you would just are up there in your your your but that makes it maybe even worse because you're just imagining yeah very he was maybe he wasn't just eating all the time that team I'd be scared just because he's in the same way.

we tried but he does have a specific there is a specific delivery invoice to it is weird is we can both hear it that's one of the phenomenon of life that no one's talking about you can hear something in your head perfectly then you try and translate it to the shape of your throat and the movement of your tongue sometimes you're right I I've never been good with accents impersonations but then I finally at snl realize I could do one thing I could do was a kermit the frog which basically everybody could do but like I I feel like that's pretty pretty can do kermit you're talking about closing it back here throughout expert doing like hey right let's hear your kermit the frog yours is very good but then they're very good auden normal curve it that's what I'm going to call thank you very good curry because everybody's like Gherman and that's okay I mean yours or a good too I'm not I'm not taking away from my I feel like your voice the way you sound with that filter that Combo sounds like in the way the Jim Henson wasn't trying to sound the kermit that's what Jim Henson's clearances Ah I realized that I think I I've never tried to do it but I think I could do a Ray Romano that's what I was GonNa say Oh if you can do kermit you can do ray which is just are living queens and we're gonna try it as I got to try to bring up I was in paterson or Patterson yeah Mark Martin yeah that's that's a touchdown everybody loves me everybody you know it's everybody says that to me the and it's fuck you angry right fuck you yeah who are your best impersonation well we talked about that one I think I do okay but chain do you want to do it yeah I I don't know if you are this what Armao Pacino I bet you're going to be able to do it after I do it okay I wanna hear it I'm I'm sitting here with my friend we'll fourth well what it is is there something kind of in my mouth you don't know what it is but we'll I swallow it no I'm not going to swoop but when you see Alan a movie actually more up here amazing that is amazing a Magadan Hi Laurin I wanNA talk to you about bringing will forte back onto the show here I'm I'm way down I'm listening away that was good yesterday in

with the pen can you do learn Michael's isn't it well because we all can Dr Evil Right billion in he always gives that esoteric in a good lauren impression I feel like he's like not don't be too plaid but don't be planned mullany tells me one thing he said to him I never forget it he goes when we moved to a new apartment we don't take the old furniture us like really rich people giving you advice and you're just like everyone's of I can't think of a time did it but it would be something that I could see jet I do it's not good does not like it do you do place to from it oh please to do place you're going to want to get fridge iris that's pretty good that's in Raimondo so you can do it do your kermit voice high little Lisbie we'll let me take you could be the David we look thicker too you can maybe in the PTA very good until right I feel like you felt like you know I mean I think with with anything if if there's see that's the thing is I could I could get any ballpark with a lot of things yeah but I but but even with a tremendous amount of work usually I can't just mail it like I can get a ballpark and sometimes it can be a fun ballpark and sometimes it's just a lousy ballpark and I just that's why close when I was like I think I can do I know there're some days I'll go into the room and the piano is just not there like there's something wrong with your voice and that's what I found very stress inducing any live sketch show where you're doing an impression especially now 'cause it's televised obviously I'm like what if you're just not feeling it what if you can't find the touchstone Oh yeah for that voice because there are times when even even a Ray Romano is just completely wrong something that I consider an easier one and like what did you did that ever happen we just didn't feel in the mood for performing all the time there was there there was a sketch once where where the whole this was excuse me look look riber the grover that's why we don't typically drink it on the show but no it's great I love it I love it it's company abroad that we have to discuss hey we're humans you're like me we're finding it you wouldn't be in the mood for newt well so there was right exactly see you know the the whole premise of the sketch was something having to do with people doing Christopher Walken why guy my role in it was to be a person who does a bad Christopher walken impersonation who's kind of toward the and coming in and it just supposed to be Super Shady and I was so bad at it though that I got cut from the sketch like I was supposed to have a bad walking impersonation but it was so bad that they couldn't even use I love that story of so glad somebody wants the I tell me if this is true I e it was told to me by an unreliable source so very well may not be true but somebody told me they were SNL and they opened the door and you were they told the story under the guise that will it was such a professional that you are in the background of a sketch they opened the door and before the sketch was taping and you're practicing eating spaghetti somebody I'm pretty sure that's for sure that would have been bill haters sketch the Vinnie Vittachi get on I don't ever spoke I would just eat Spaghetti's eat spaghetti the whole time doing that it was not to rehearse eating spaghetti it was just because I was hungry eating there's a Lotta time it became lower it was such a professional he got it no it would just be that I would know going in that I was going to be eating a ton of Spaghetti so I would skip Jenner and so I was just hungry and a little crack lead I was on HBO's crashers not what's called I would let's go crashing I would eat all the proper food and I remember people were like you're not gonNA WANNA keep eating that pasta pizzas and it was like I don't think you know who the fuck you talk yeah thank you every theme I was eating because it bothers me on TV shows where they're holding the spool up spaghetti and they never eat it sopranos is a classic of that I give it to them because they were doing nine scenes of Italian style dining yes but Gandolfini and all of them who just poked at their food that that was the I don't know if you've ever noticed they're always just like Chris and they're just like looking for that perfect bite but I when I watch TV and they're eating I'm like thank you you wouldn't really bad at faking eating something like I really like Oh you know if there's some things like you know says is line while if there's a little parenthetical as well chewing food I can't just fake chewing food and then I get stuff in my teeth to the rest of the scene is yeah it's it's it's not necessarily crutch I love a Brad Pitt eating he's always eating I think that's where he does most of his he's good because he's looking Great Sans sure do you see once upon a time and yet Hollywood I was actually sitting next to another comedian and I was it's actually kind of a fun story I went to the Ark Light and there was cone in line it was like a Tuesday konan-konan over okay okay cones is oh breezy with inland nine and we just went up to him and it was a nice Hollywood moment I don't know if you've had one of the I'm sure you have where you're just like we weren't planning on this but now we're GonNa go see this movie together it was just us in the theater and I noticed that cones ease was being good counties as pretty as I've noticed discipline he doesn't eat a lot he stays healthy yeah I'm getting Greece's PC's is I'm getting some fucking buddies on the puppies and in the movie I'm just scarfing 'cause it's America and CONESA sitting there thinking about how any is and then there's the scene where Brad Pitt on the roof with his shirt off looking like all of the

Stop Losing Your Data with Brian Gill
"Thanks for coming on the show so I am I am interested in talking to you today because we really haven't had a guest talk about some of the topics that we're going to talk about today but why don't we start off a little bit with who you are and what you do yeah sure so without going into full back story. well I basically have surround myself with a bunch of really quality humans and together for the last sixteen years my primary mission has been to help the people out of data related disasters whether that's bad guys infiltrating network or data being stolen or a server crashing or making mistake and accidentally deleting all the pictures of their wedding or baby photos we are a bunch of Tech nerds who do everything we can to to help people out of those crises and also once they've kind of experienced those crises we help them either back up or sometimes they'll hire us as if they got hacked they'll hire us as we call it a part time see so or come in and do Kinda monthly risk assessments to help them prevent the next attack so you know it's just helping people out of Disasters Gotcha yeah well I mean as as somebody who has lost all of his photos and music for all of our music was in the cloud on a streaming service I can definitely level with that like after that happened to me I made sure to get an external hard drive live and of course today I have like a time machine on my Mac and back blaze and Nass and just like lots of things 'cause I I've been in that situation what I haven't been in is A well what my company or my clients knock on wood haven't really been involved in stuff like data-breach so it sounds like you do some of the more personal personal computing problems right data loss and recovery the recovery side of our business we founded back in two thousand four and we that's the data recovery company and that company it's a mix you know maybe forty percent of our clients are just normal people consumers who lost their personal data on a laptop or they dropped their phone toilet or you know that kind of stuff maybe thirty percent are small business owners with maybe one to fifty employees had a server crash or a chief executive ever accounting professional had a laptop hard drive crash or an SSD go bad and then the other third is large corporate America the government you know we've done recoveries for almost eighty percents of the Federal Bureau so it's pretty much everybody loses data on the data brief side of things we almost would I don't WanNa say never our average size client who got data breached is probably a hundred to five hundred employees may sometimes even larger for the for the micro sized businesses who get breached they're less likely to need an army of nerds to come in in an address that situation you know yeah yeah absolutely so so you you serve all sorts of people doing all sorts of things but I wanna get I wanna get back to the basics a little bit in your intro here so I also I have my degree in computer science I have a masters in software engineering and I went the web development path I when I was in college in Highschool I read like Kevin Mitnick's books and I thought man I really want to do that but ah I decided to go the other route what made you want to get into this particular field yeah I mean in general I got my computer science degree from University Wisconsin and that was like right before the first big tech bubble the first day web one point no and I jumped on a plane a and went out to the Silicon Valley and really wanted to play the startup game and joined a couple of startups one of them's still around that were you know involved with ECOMMERCE and that kind of stuff and you know I was primarily on the back end development style database design and things of that nature and a lot of back end programming I my four was not my forte was not the kind of user experience all of that's kind of changed over the years when that whole economy just imploded and all the valley was horrible place I mean I would say eighty percent of my friends were out of work I had a job but it wasn't star was in a bank so I had a job but it wasn't the type the job that I moved out there for so I kind of tucked my tail between my legs and say well I'm GonNa work at a bank I might as well do it in Wisconsin from from immoral my family is my brother had just had a couple of kids and I wanted to be there for that and I just wipe the three thousand dollars often read so I I talked tail between my legs Humpback Wisconsin and was just doing some consulting some really boring but wonderful companies like insurance companies and cheese manufacturers and all kinds of words and I really wanted to start a company right but the Donovan was in the crapper there was zero percent chance of getting any kind of bank loan so I knew I needed to do something that I could bootstrap uh with like the fifty grand that had saved up you know so whatever I was going to do I needed to be able to get to revenue within my within my budget right because it's just I wasn't going to get an angel financing I wasn't GonNa Fifty Thousand Dollars Angel Financing for a new idea they were going to take if your business back then it was just a horrible time to be an entrepreneur so my brother tyler younger brother Tyler was going to school at University Wisconsin ucf degree he's about nine years younger than me and he had a hard drive crash so he was trying to figure out how do I get my stuff back and he found two companies in the whole us that advertised for it and both of them wanted like three thousand dollars and that was like again exactly you know turns out it's pretty hard but we had the right circle of friends we had one of my buddies was an electrical engineer ear one of my buddies was a mechanical engineer I had the computer science and kind of ECOMMERCE background and we kind of had all the pieces of the the kind of academic puzzle so the next question is okay so there's very few competitors in the two that are out there that we could find were very prohibitively expensive so could we start a company for less than fifty grand learn enough about how to do this that we could serve underserved part of the market right and get it off the ground and and that's kind of where it came from and turns out we could that's fantastic I love that I have I have a similar story of how I got into web development you know essentially my church came to me and they said we want a website and I said I don't know how to do that and then we'll pay you and Mike are okay sweet money's yeah
Our E3 breakdown: Microsoft's Project Scarlett looks crazy powerful (The 3:59, Ep. 568)
"The. Tonight on what you're saying. I'm Ben FOX Rueben and Oscar Ellis, E three is upon us. The big video game confab is out. No way. We've got a whole team out there covering it. Oscar you're here, though, covering all of the action. What was the most pressing? You've seen so far. It's granted we're only about two days into it. It was by far Kiana Reeves so John, Wakeham selfie. He appears in the twenty seven twenty seventy seven trailer. And sure enough, he shows up at, at three does a little spiel has just roar of applause, and announces that the game is coming out next year. And you said this was at a presentation press conference held in which they announced new hardware, like a new XBox coming twenty twenty project scarlet, but you said, can't raise got more plausible that it was huge even he was taken aback. I mean ease superstar, even he was like, whoa, right? And everybody just loves them. There's cheers, there was a guy who said your breathtaking. And that guy's going to get a free copy of the game from CD project, grit. Because he heckled he heckled cannery canneries been on a pretty Sean, Ron John wick three obviously has a lot of fans of I wanted to give to always be my maybe that Netflix film, in which canneries plays version of canneries that we think he is, which is kind of amazing. But back to back to you three product scarlet we have to talk about the next XBox AK graphics. One hundred twenty days for second salt say drive. Would you think about it, it seems that for this next gen consoles deceits us is solid state drives? Yeah. That is just going to make everything faster when it comes to loading two big areas that's going to be the key thing graphics. Wise course it's going to be better. They didn't show anything. But obviously it's gonna be better. PS live is going to be better. But solid state drive is going to get a new television, right? Ak graphics. You're going to need to upgrade your forte TV or so. We're, we're in for four k content. Yeah. If you want, if you want the eight k is a bit about feature per right though. The last version, the Xbox One originally didn't have XT Moore did have four K just like the PS four. And so I think they're trying to feature proof a little that there. Right. So it's, it's not where they had to come out with that Xbox One x to power, the four K resolution stole a lot of time for them to tease out a lot about this product because it doesn't come out until holiday, twenty so this was probably. Just a little bit to get people interested. And then we're going to see a lot more going forward. Yeah. The more than likely. They'll have their own little bit next year. Like they did with the Xbox One yet tour the show off the games, but halo infant is going to be a game for this four cyberpunk twenty seventy seven where the two only two trailers, I mash them watching just some huge halo junkie so beyond that last week, there was the Amazon remorse conference, which kinda got lost the shuffle. With all the touching on apple WW C, which they knew that then knew that they were scheduling, the first annual conference dub dub, tell me what is remorse. So is a it's basically Jeff Bezos is conference that they hadn't Vegas where they talk about robotics space, artificial intelligence. It's kind of big science, fair about a couple of things. So it was drove was quite enough that it could potentially sneak up on you. Yes. Yes. So Amazon announced their newest prime air drone at the conference, which is kind of a big deal, and that they continue to rate, these delivery drones that they keep tell. Us going to deliver us stuff within thirty minutes by the FAA hasn't really moved forward with the proves where we don't expect this to reach the mass market, at least the next couple of years if ever but it was a cool new drone. So tell me about on scout. Amazon scout. I got a chance to actually see this. This is a delivery drone for the ground. So it rides around in suburban sidewalks. And one of the cool aspects of it, that they told me about was that they create these duplicates of the real world, the real neighborhoods that Amazon scout is actually going around and to actually train the I to be able to actually know what to do when it goes out there and doesn't. I don't know. Knock over a tiny dog or something like that. All right. More of these sound seen it and Roger Chan, I'm Ben FOX. Zealous. Thanks for listening.

"Talking tech is brought to you by wicks dot com with wicks you can use artificial design intelligence to create a stunning website right from your phone in five minutes or less. Just go to wicks dot com. That's W I X dot com and create your professional website today. We've got the team behind the massively popular epic rap battle series from YouTube here today talking tech just under two years ago. The lattes known is nice, Peter and ethic, Lloyd, Peter Shuku off. Hello and Lloyd outlived. Yeah. That's me. I am Lloyd I'll to debris from the series which featured such battles as JAMES BOND versus pasta powers Steve Jobs versus Bill Gates, and Jim Henson versus danley. Now. They're back. He Lon musk versus Mark Zuckerberg about today. Do correct. Let's find out why they took the long break and what brought them back. Hi, guys. Hi, hello. Where were you? We live around the corner. So we've been here we we just took a break. Yeah. I got married and had had a baby. And that was a that was a whole thing to the process. We we were making the rap bottles for about six years straight. And that that really meant straight that was every day seven days a week three hundred sixty five days a year for the most part was living in this world of creating this series keeping the series growing. And it just came time to take a break. I think in in modern media. I it's expected to be an every day every week every month. New all the time tweets Facebook posts comments likes, and I think in the old days people used to make an album then go away for awhile and then come back with a new album. And so we decided to try that the last battle. We uploaded was seizing five. The last battle was January of twenty six seventeen twenty seventeen. Yeah. Yeah. So January twenty seventeen was the last time, we uploaded. So now, it's what is it right now, December twenty eight. Yeah. Yeah. So so this is about. England, musket, Mark Zuckerberg. And we tried to think about the sort of most iconic images of them for us in the last couple of years in for us Zuckerberg for sure was the Senate hearing. So we thought we would put him at that table with that microphone. So that's where he is in the opening in the opening slate as you can see it here. And then the musk who like he's got a fly. He's got to do something. So we thought it'd be a bomber jacket. It would be fun. So he's in that as well in this battle at some point in time. And which one of you is in which one. Me being the paste year of two Stephanie the Mark Zuckerberg, and I'm on musk who is it. I'll have to say one of the more challenging people to try to imitate he has a very subtle accent in a very sort of subtle way about him. So I played a lot of characters and subtle isn't really my forte. I'm more smashed face. So it was definitely a challenge in Moscow took to beat the cheerfully frustrated all the time. Like, he he's in a good mood. But he's always stretched too thin and always like on, but he's just a positive person with a lot of positive momentum. But it was a different difficult character to find should tell listeners that I'm interviewing two guys with beards. Yes. And they portrayed two guys with clean shaven faces. Yeah. Did you shave for the holiest? This needs favorite part of going to production for the rap ballads is constantly having to shave my face and put like it's especially difficult. We have to wear a fake beard because we have to shave our real beards. So the glue can adhere to our skin. So we can wear a bigger beard. So the worst. Okay. So this is a serious production involves glue. So yeah, that is sometimes the most difficult part, the costumes and the mustache glued inappropriately or inaccurately to your face is maybe the most irritating thing on the planet and to wrap with that in this in your knows that I have nightmares about that. So thankfully, did not have a moustache. Alright. So Elon Musk is going to take on Mark Zuckerberg, of course, and more battles to come twenty nine thousand nine hundred nineteen with Peter and epic Lloyd, correct? All right.
