"Ten all right. I'm gonna give you a list of some stuff right now. Franz liszt frank sinatra elvis presley the beatles the rolling stones and the jackson five. What are they all have in. Common teenage girls. Were right about them before everybody else. The same thing is happening with k pop as we speak you know what else. Teenage girls were right about the movies. It's hard to imagine now in a world where everything seems catered teenage boys but the earliest and most passionate fans of films in the nineteen hundreds nineteen. Ten's were teenage girls. And young women and there was much tut-tutting and finger-wagging among the pundit class about how silly those teenage girls young women were that they were absorbing the images on the screen on an emotional service level without having any deeper analysis which is obviously nonsense and at the same time some of that was true for twilight which is why some of the culture wide snickering. That was directed at it. Didn't really sit all that. Well with me. I mean if edward cullen was good for anything he'd be an expert eyewitness for all of this stuff given that he was a teenager for a hundred years but even if some of the knox twilight were unfair that doesn't invalidate any criticism of it and the general feeling among the critics. Was that while kristen. Stewart and robert pattinson had genuine chemistry. It was all a little bit too self serious to work as a whole. It's at forty nine percent on the tomato meter with two hundred twenty two reviews but it does have a seventy-three percent audience score. So what did the critics have to say in a rotten review. Genevieve polski of the av club wrote while the movie attempts to find a compelling middle ground between gothic supernatural ism and teenage romance usually winds up stumbling into the name territory implied by both descriptions however in fresh review. Kim joiner movie city. News wrote stewart is a fine talented actress and she ups the ante considerably here. Her strong performance makes twilight far better film than it would have been with a lesser actress in the part the rotten tomatoes critics consensus reads having lost much of its bite. Transitioning to the big screen..

"That's a swedish rhapsody by hugo alphand. But the word rhapsody is greek. It means songs stitched together. Ancient greeks told stories about their heroes in huge long epic poems. And they took parts of those poems and recited them using lots of vocal ups and downs for emphasis. The sing song recitation of poem pieces was called a rhapsody in music. Rhapsody is a free form composition that stitches different huhne's together lots of rhapsodies us popular or folk melodies from a particular country like the romanian rhapsody number one by georgian enescu and. That's actually got annoyed that his first rhapsody became so popular audiences never wanted to hear any of his other music. Franz liszt was born in hungary in spite of the fact that he spent very little of his life their list composed twenty. Hungarian rhapsodies anyone. Who's at bugs. Bunny fan knows the list. Hungarian rhapsody number. Two charles stanford only composed six rhapsodies about his native country. This is stanford's irish. Rhapsody number. Five french composer camille sounds souls based his rhapsody van on folk songs from a region of france. Another frenchman got inspired by a trip. To southern spain emmanuel shabri called his rhapsody espana which is spanish for spain. Not all rhapsodies are about foreign countries. The second rhapsody for piano and orchestra by george gershwin describes a walk through manhattan one of the five boroughs of new york city because gershwin used music to imitate the sound of skyscrapers being built. His second. rhapsody is sometimes called rhapsody. In in rivets rivets are what hold the metal beams of a building together. There are also rhapsodies than don't really have anything to do with a place as a wedding present for robert and clara schumann daughter..

"I'm naomi lewin. Welcome to classics for kids. We think of franz list as a composer but in his day he was really famous as a pianist. So were mozart. Beethoven chopin and rachmaninoff and a lot of others. You may or may not have heard of domenico. Scarlatti played one of the earliest keyboard instruments that we would recognize as a piano. Scarlatti was born in italy but he spent most of his life working for royalty in spain and portugal he composed five hundred fifty five keyboard sonatas. Luzio clementi was born in italy too but he moved to london. India's buried in westminster abbey with a tombstone that reads father of the piano forte. Which is the full name of the piano. Clementi helped make the piano popular and he taught a lot of people including carl czerny. Czerny is most famous for writing a set of piano exercises. You'll probably run into if you take lessons. Jeremy's most famous teacher was beethoven and he wound up being the soloist for the premiere. The first performance of beethoven's fifth piano concerto. Because beethoven was deaf to hear the orchestra by then another famous pianist. Composer was clara as a teenager. Clara veep was known all over europe. As queen of the piano she married. Robert schumann who also started out as a pianist after he hurt his hand and couldn't play anymore. Clara played the premiere of all his piano pieces in nineteenth century america. Amy beach became famous as a pianist and composer at a time. When most americans still traveled to europe to study music. Amy beach studied in boston. Her family moved there from new hampshire where she was born one spanish pianist composer who performed in america never made it home when an week.'. Granados came to new york for the premiere of his opera. He was also invited to give a piano recital at the white house. This was in nineteen sixteen during world. War one a ship that granados took to get home was hit by torpedo from german submarine and he didn't survive frenchman. Eric not made his living as a pianist for most of his career. So did american. Composers scott joplin Greek used to spend the spring and summer at home in norway composing but he spent the fall and winter on tour as a pianist. Some people we know today as pianists are also composers. Marc andre hamlin. Who's from canada and gabriela monteiro. Who was born in venezuela. She performed at president obama's first inauguration. Montano is very good at improvising. That is taking a melody and making up music from it on the spot. It's interesting to think which people we know as pianists might be better remembered one day as composers..

She was known as the swedish nightingale. That's soprano joan sutherland. With a song. That jenny lynn sang all over the united states. Schools and bridges got named for her. And you could buy jenny. Lynn shirts ties coats hats pies cigars even jenny. Lynn sausages jenny lind lived before there were sound recordings but not enrico caruso. Thanks to recordings italian. Tenor enrico caruso became the most famous singer in the world. He made two movies but they were silent. Because caruso died before films became talkies nor singers. American tenor mario lonzo was born. The year caruso died. He became famous through the movies and wound up starring in one. Call the great caruso. Another tenor became world-famous.

Lister stokowski my congratulations sir. The first american born conductor to become an international superstar was leonard bernstein. He was also a pianist and he composed for the concert hall and for broadway. Why classical music superstars today. Include trumpeter wynton marsalis who also plays jazz. And composes cellist. Yo-yo ma and pianist long long who loves to play list.

The beatle mania was kind of the be model for some modern version of the big chemical mania or like the biggest version of that But it may not have been the I historical version of this I am talking about listening listening mania.

Because i had watched the. Who's tommy. i thought. Well that's this movie's crazy. But it's kinda crazy like in a fun way and then you watch list of amiens like what happened here if you've never seen it guys. It's just like pates hedera. But i'm talking about the actual list of menia franz liszt the piano player and composer Basically was the first rock star of music before there is such a thing as rock and roll. I he was the first guy to get up on a piano recital and actually start the recital from walking in off the wings before everyone just the audience came in and the pianist was already there and then he started and that was kinda he actually walked in from the wings to rebuild a little bit more excitement He was the first person to work from memory and not from cheap music. Oh there's actually considered to be Arrogant to work without sheet music at the time but he thought it was something to create more of an atmosphere but more of a performance and he would do things like he would turn the piano so that he was the audience could see him and he used this really good looking guy had this long flowing hair and so that they could see him sweating and the hair flowing and his beads of sweat coming off him and so he was. He was well aware of his potential for doing something that was could incite an audience. And he did he would you know. They're the term list of media was something came up in the press because he did this tour of europe and people especially women in their twenties to forties. We're just going nuts.

"In Cleveland the clear articulation short notes, and of course, the precision and Utah intonation, he was just an equality of some of the individual players, as well really spoke to him so that when I remember I remember a few others of he he, he was not so interested in not specifically I. Remember taking some Benny Goodman. He loved Benny Goodman. And a few things he hadn't heard he was delighted by those. But. It was interesting to the thinks he would pick out because he was a record skied to. He had grown up in Minneapolis attending rehearsals of metropolis someone he revered. Of and the always encouraged me to seize of this particular metropolis recording remember the politics infancy one. He singled out as being a unique interpretation of the piece which it is. And how much she enjoyed that! complaining to certain, Minneapolis recordings to try to find because they were back then they were hard to find a. they're probably all online. So are do you listen with you? Listen to like historic records with a record player, or are you listening to the digital urgent well? It that that's a good question. I still I still have some vinyl, but when I moved from New, York City here I finally parted ways with a lot of my collection of I've been collecting records probably since about nineteen seventy eight and I had probably about three thousand vinyl LP's at least at number of CDs, and so that the thought of hangs, move them across. The country was. A little painful, so they stayed behind, and my tenant tolerated having. Stuck in boxes. And then when I sold the place last year. I decided I would go back and pick out the ones I absolutely could not replace the ones that I hadn't managed to download from some other source or weren't available for streaming site I. Did that and I gave the rest of? Incredible quantity away, so my listening a lot of it. In the meantime I had been part of some recording newsgroups where people exchange things. They taped off the radio so now I have a rifle of live performances. Of various things that I've chosen to collect not not all which I have time to listen to download them so when I'm like Oh. What Recordings Brahms? syfy number four, which is something I'm preparing right now. Who? Do I have in thirteen of them. They, all sound interesting. There's no I can hear them all. But as many of them are things, I I did not have previously either because they're alive or things I didn't bother to collect, and they're all fascinating so i. do have some vinyl. And I've actually bought a few new vinyl I bought the Beatles. I bought the new Sergeant Pepper online on. It's fantastic and. When I have time I do that, but a lot of hard drive stuff on headphones the also. I right before I moved to Colorado I was getting into like going to the store and looking all the finals and trying to find. Something old I think the coolest thing I found was a was a Schurenberg conducting bureau lunar, which I still haven't gotten a chance to sit down and listen to, but just like I just wanted to own bat. Yeah I had that record back in the day after. A veiled for streaming as well. I'm told Schurenberg was not a terribly effective conductor recently. Would have known that. That was a piece that I. I played it a few years ago here but that was one where I was called a lot as a last minute substitute for rehearsals and concerts that was very good sight reader, and that was one thing I got called to. Can you fill in? Somebody's it as a whole. I actually like I. I I think. They faxed me the music. That's how long ago. And practice that a loss because you cannot sight read that. It's very as I. I got through the dress rehearsal without destroying it. A very difficult piece to play, Wow! I'm wondering if we can actually Kinda, pick a piece, and then if you would walk us through a couple of different recordings, you have maybe talk about some specifics went sure what differs them just again. Really dig into the weeds. And then I want to make listening lists for myself to go off. And find them in here. All the shirt and we can continue to exchange ideas over email about recording to. Which is I? Mean I think you. You probably know your record collection more. Which piece would you? Would you be able to compare a couple all a really any standard work? Either Symphonic Concerto Could I mean I can always say pass if I don't know but. I know pretty well. I mean Beethoven five is the first one just. There is so many recordings of it, but you know maybe maybe maybe the since you're working on the Brahms, maybe. Maybe fourth well I would start with two. Max fiedler, who conducted of in front of Brahms has as recording Lebron's four and I think. Everybody should hear it because nobody makes music this way anymore. It's just. A type of a musical flow that it really doesn't exist where. The tempo is always flowing in one direction or another nowadays when people talk about robotics, we talk about where we're slowing down, hesitating pausing but Max fiedler and the conductors of his generation. It also meant flowing forward at faster, sometimes to quite remarkable degree, and I'm not talking about the code of the first words, almost traditional speed up a little bit but where it starts quite slowly at the beginning like Oh, my goodness! We're going to be here a while, and then it just gets really gets going. Then it pulls way back and each team just seems to find tempo in which rest and once you're not being jarred by it. It's quite. It's quite remarkably convincing to me. But if you've never heard the style of music making. It, it's easy to like okay. That's crazy like nobody would ever do that, but it's this is someone who again worked at Brahms's presence in had his approval, and he also recorded the Second Symphony, and at least one of the piano concertos and a few things. So that and also Felix Weingartner who also was old enough to have been around Brahms in who worked in Vienna, so they almost certainly must have crossed paths at some point in and vine, gardener, whose name probably familiar to hopefully because he wrote the book about Beethoven Cetera was a student of Franz Liszt as a pianist, so he was, he was Very distinguished musician and his bronze fourth is on Youtube among other places. Of is very different from Max feeders. It's much more contemporary sounding. It's very swift. A! Brahms recording temples are quite fast. And But it's it's also just it's wonderfully contemporary sound and compared to Max there and yet here conductors of fairly similar generation, so those I just think are really important recordings by people who lived in the nineteenth century, and lived long enough to to make records so That's those were those are unmissable Brahms fourths. Ob. Is it contemporary in that? It's in that the bottle in the tempo is something that we would expect more now. Vine Gartner It. Yes to that extent. What's different about it is that it's generally swifter than what it what we would expect for most people now. It's a it's a much more. He's what I would call more organic interpreter of these in other. Let's the natural flow of the pulse. Ganic style music making me think of Toscanini. George Sell. These kind of conductors were as villars what I. Call Interventionist. Interventionist style conductors. Stokowski for.

Or wherever you get your podcasts so to get to the end of the mania and the end of life in eighteen forty seven list met princess. Caroline's you son Wittgenstein and he met her in Kiev and they started a relationship and she like his previous long term love affair with Mary. The princess wanted him to stop touring and settled down and focus on teaching and composing instead so while he and the previous his previous love interests come tests had needed to escape. Paris and scandal instead list was installed in the princesses estates as last paying concert was in September of that year and he was thirty five at the age of thirty seven. He accepted the permanent post of capita MEISTER. Basically the person in charge of music for the Grand Duke of Weimar. This position came with a royal benefactor. Carl Alexander to be his patron so he had the financial and social backing to just continue his own work. Liz Move to Mar. And the princess later joined him there. In addition to his ongoing teaching and composition list started trying to create new musical forms. The most famous of these was the symphonic poem which is a musical piece. That's meant to evoke or illustrate a story. Or if you SA- Visual Art. These compositions were really groundbreaking. And they attracted more music students. He wanted to learn from him. He dedicated most of his music around this time to the Princess Caroline and while in Weimar List wrote what's considered to be his most accomplished symphonic work in Faust symphony or Faust Symphony. This is essentially a series of interconnected symphonic poems based on Johann Wolfgang Von Jeff. This tragic play faust guarantee and. Schiller had both lived in. Weimar and Liz drew musical inspiration from their literary work. His post capital Meister also meant that was responsible for conducting the orchestra and in doing so. He really revolutionized what it meant to conduct up until that point. The conductor was basically a human metronome. He made sure that all of the orchestra played in time with one. Another and the nobody missed their cues. But at least added gestures and expressions and an emotive physical presence to guide with. The Orchestra's should sound like in the shape of the playing itself. And this is pretty much taken for granted in the field of conducting an orchestra today. That's how it works. At the end of the eighteen fifties life became more difficult for list. He resigned his post in Weimar in eighteen. Fifty nine and at that point. Two of his children also died one in that same year that he resigned and then another a few years later in eighteen sixty two he also got caught up in a musical feud known as the war of the Romantics and this pitted the more romantically inclined musicians list. Richard Wagner against the more conservative classically inclined traditionalist faction of Robert Schumann Felix Mendelssohn. Yohannes Brahms was basically a dispute between the more avant garde musical scene and the composers who drew their influence from past masters like Bach Mozart and Beethoven this association with Wagner also meant that lives developed a reputation for having antisemitic views but there's significant dispute about whether quotations that were attributed to him in this Area of thought were accurate or they were not at this point. Wagner is kind of notoriously antisemitic in his views. I had a hard time confirming exactly what views were so as whole musical schism was going on list moved to Rome where the Princess Caroline had gone to try to get her previous marriage annulled by the pope. She enlists hopes to get married but her annulment did not go through so they did not and at this point lists turned away from a lot of the world in eighteen sixty three moved to an apartment at a monastery outside of Rome in two years later in eighteen sixty five. He cut his hair in a tonsure. So that's the shaving of the middle part of the scalp that leaves a ring of hair around it. At this point he took holy orders that same year and he pursued an extensive study of theology with the hope of joining the clergy and although he was never ordained he did become an Abbott and he produced a number of religiously themed musical works in Eighteen seventy lists returns to Hungary to visit and while he was away from Rome. Victor-emmanuel a second attempted to unify all the Italian states and essentially laid siege to round since he couldn't return list remained in Hungary and accepted a post at the Royal National Hungarian Academy of Music in Budapest and today this is the Franz Liszt Academy of Music for the last fifteen years of his life list divided his time. Among Budapest Weimar Rome he continued to teach extensively and cultivated the idea of a master class. And that's an idea that's continued to be part of musical and other artistic education today. He taught these demonstration based classes. He being the master of course for free. He's struggled with depression and failing health for the end of his life and he died in Germany on July thirty first eighteen eighty six by then he had composed about fourteen hundred works although he's pretty universally recognized as virtuoso piano player as well as contributions to the art of conducting in the idea of symphonic poems there are still people that argue that his skill as a composer was all hype. I found several articles that were like five list. Was He really any good? I don't think that's always the case with avant-garde folks though right like even also the case with excessively pretty soulful looking people who acquire an overly excited base of fans that liked to scream a lot. Right I mean you could say that. Any person in the arts or anything really wear like if they have really rabid fans. There's always gonNA to be a kickback of like no. They're not worth all of that. Even though they are super talented and amazing right people say that about the Beatles. Plenty of arguments. You can make about the Beatles. And what their influences are whether there's influence should've gotten more attention and whether all of their work is really great but really seriously you can't just dismiss the entirety of the Beatles because ladies were screaming about them. Yeah so they're also this whole phenomenon. Spawned a weird rock opera about front of list in the Nineteen Seventies. That was called Mr Mania. There's also a song and album by the band. Phoenix that became very popular more much more recently.

Tester I Beta tested rage to in told it software that it fucking sucked right to their face and they haven't invited me back since so that's my qualifications that bring me onto this podcast today. Solid solid qualifications. I love and we did a double check this before. We invited him on. Yeah we have standards true. I contacted the company themselves and they said WHO's that and I hung up because you know they. They completely forgot about they were so angry about it. I called but once they said hello. I hung up very nervous very scares me. Human human interaction scares me this. Why do podcast so I do a podcast of my van? I can't I can't be under a roof with anyone else while talking so with blizzard. I don't know I'm sure since you know the hundreds of thousands of people who listen to podcast all of your gamers. All of you had to have heard of warcraft. Three forged the absolute travesty. That happened with that. I call it a travesty Yeah it was a travesty sucks. What happened those unfamiliar warcraft? Three reforge is essentially like a it's like an HD remake of warcraft three there. There's a lot happening with it right now as we speak. It's cut a metacritic score of zero point five stars which is the lowest you can go get go any lower than that at almost thirty thousand ratings right now. It's it's probably sitting at Twenty eight or twenty nine thousand. It's insane what what is going on with this game. You go through you go through the comments you or not comments you go through the reviews and you see people talking about the just the outrageous amount of bugs. You Look Online. You see the cut the cut scenes. Ui improvements that were promised or not delivered the removal of like fan favourite features. Aaron were you able to find anything specific anyone talking about that yet so on the metacritic user by the name of Stab in the soul left zero rating with the following review in his review. Actually really detailed some really good stuff. He broke down a what they took out in what they no longer have. They said they no has no clans. No profiles can no longer have more than one account no more custom campaign functionality no more built in tournament functionality no more land functionality no more off game versus the AI. No more cross chat with D. Two players which is the ability to players know more slash commands remove the Franz Liszt removed custom game filter. No women are system. No custom key. Bonds cut all promised new cut scenes. Cut Off Dude. It's a long lake on. Hold on hold on hold on so would you say they cut out cross chat with d? Two is it specifically only with D. Two or all other games. I think it was just why the film I remember. I remember being able to be in D. Two Games. Go into like a specific channel. And you'd see like the little starcraft people down at the bottom and you can talk with them. While they were in in warcraft. Yep so they were just like the community is a little too toxic for what we're trying to do this game. I don't want to he overwatch. Three keep.

"Okay, Chuck, so there's another big push in good Samaritan laws in the United States. It's interesting how they're kind of like refined as, as things go on. But there's this thread the sentiment that runs through them. That's like, okay, we need to make sure that people are don't hesitate in helping their fellow their fellow human in need. Yeah. A lot of these I mean this label this special interest, good Samaritan laws, but these, these are great like it makes a lot of sense, especially while they all do, but this one about the food donation in the mid nineteen nineties, there was a realization that a lot of food was going to waste fourteen billion pounds specifically food go into landfills when people in America needed that food. And, you know, you've heard stories about grocery stores, can't be held liable. So they just have to throw that stuff away. Right. So they passed the Bill. Emerson good Samaritan food donation act, which is to provide some protections. In case you donate food, and someone gets sick from eating that food, right? Exactly. So I remember back when when grocery stores did have to throw that away before that law is just so wasteful, and so just morally wrong. So they passed that one ninety six Goodyear for passing laws. I guess. And then there's even newer kind of push of good Samaritan laws that are protecting college kids, who drinks, you even though they're underage. They might be worried on me and I'm going to get expelled or kicked out of college. Yeah. If I call for help, and so apparently that some of them weren't calling for help, and some universities, I think it's up to thirty two hundred and forty universities in thirty five states now have something called nine one one lifeline or nine one one, good Samaritan law where if you call for help for yourself or for somebody else who's head too much to drink, and it's like a medical emergency. You won't get in trouble for having been drinking under age. But it's laid the groundwork for a like a larger law about opioid abuse that we really kind of need that the good Samaritan law for that, that protects people who are calling for somebody who's overdosing on heroin where under normal circumstances. They might. Hesitate because they're on heroine themselves. And they don't wanna get busted for it. Yeah. What's it's called now? Zone. And this is basically it comes looking epi pen now and it's something that cops have their emergency kits and just like an epi pen, something that civilian can use. You don't have to medical training. If someone is overdosing on an an on heroin, or some other kind of opioid you just inject this thing. And that Kim, say their life and so do junkies. Don't wanna call the ambulance or the cops or whatever just the same as an underage college kid doesn't want to call the cops, so they're often described as medical amnesty laws and his great. You know exactly. And it's making a difference. There was one study in two thousand two at Cornell about the alcohol one and they said there was a rise from twenty two percent to fifty two percent of counseling sessions attended by students in two thousand four because students weren't afraid, you know, I'm nineteen years old or whatever. I need help. So they, you know, it's shown that it's working, and I think this is going on with this now drug right? Yeah. So like the naloxone kind of has its own protection where whether you're somebody who's on heroin or not, if you minister that you could be a medical professional. It's like such a new thing that, that they've they've realized they need a specific. Good Samaritan law for that, to cover anybody who's administering Nalic zone, like if they do some damage or whatever they were still trying to help. But then also, if you're like on heroin yourself just calling nine one one, you can have immunity in some states from getting busted for heroin for being on it yourself. Right. So, like, hey, we're gonna save you and you're under arrest. Right. Which I guess, is is still in some states. It's still a possibility don't like you don't want people worrying about whether they're going to get pop themselves. And then saying, well, I can't. Call for you know, shortage over here. Which is I guess a heroin users name. You know, so the, the, the heroin user, who's overdosing, who would otherwise live dies because they're the person, they shot up with, like, is too worried about getting busted themselves because the last thing, a heroin editor drug addict might do in the throes of that drug is thank let me call a cop, or right? A police officer. They might help. Right. They say, like as far as vice goes for good Samaritans. This article councils people that think sensibly most states do have laws to protect people that if you're doing something reasonable to try and help which all goes back to split second is kind of tough. But that goes back to what you're saying, like reasonable maneuvers to help somebody. Yeah. I mean it's not necessarily like like don't try the tracheotomy right right, right? So. Yeah. So that kinda ties into saying, don't try things. You're not trained to do and just kinda ties into reasonable like is, is trying to administer CPR reasonable thing if you come upon somebody's not breathing. Yes, totally reasonable. Is it is it, you know, unreasonable to try to get their heart going by by pumping their arms up and down in dislocating, the shoulder, probably not going to be protected by a good Samaritan law. Yeah, but how much can you get sued for for a broken collarbone, probably a lot, especially if the person's like ping pong player or professional illustrator? Yeah. Right. Exactly. You love it. We need to do an episode on pingpong. I love ping pong, too. I'm surprised we never squared squared off. I, I am as well, Chuck. Well, we've never been in the same room as a ping pong table today. I was thinking I was going to make a camp joke, but. Debate me to the truth. You got anything else? Oh, yes, I do. There's one thing that came up if you don't mind talking about it. The Seinfeld thing. Do you remember how that the final episode? Right, right. Yeah. Which is like the least funny episode of Seinfeld ever. But it had like a weird message when, when the gang gets gets put in jail for watching a guy, I think it was Jonathan Pinette get carjacked by somebody with a gun and just sitting there making fun of them while they're videotaping it, right? Yeah. And that kind of raise the this it kind of ties into good Samaritan laws. A lot of people are, like can you actually is there any place in the country where you can get get in trouble for that kind of thing? And it turns out no kind of falls into that duty to act law, where you are in some places like for Mont, or I think in, in California under some circumstances. You are required to report a crime, but you're not required to actually intervene. Like, kinda that big point I made earlier at the beginning of episodes. That's a big distinction, right? Yeah. And not only are you. You know, not required interview you're not even required to report the crime during the commission of their, the crime for most duty to act laws. You just can't walk away and pretend you never saw anything that's the that's where you will get prosecuted. So the Seinfeld gang probably would not have gone to jail, and this article that I read. Quotes, a guy who's an attorney in San Diego named somebody lists. Oh man. I wish I could remember the guy's name FRANZ Liszt. No not FRANZ Liszt, who's a great great composer. But a. L. I. S S lists. Yeah. Peter lists criminal lawyer from San Diego, ended up in this article he basically says, not only should they not have gone to jail. They provided very valuable evidence by recording the entire crime. So let them off the hook has there ever been a tougher show to end than Seinfeld. Probably not. But they really chose Severi specific unsatisfying way to do it. What about sopranos everybody hated how that? And it yeah. I didn't love the sopranos, but then moved to LA during its run and didn't have TV. So I quit watching it, but I do remember all the hoopla, but seinfeld's just one of those, I mean that the stunk but it's just a hard show to end because you can't it was the most sentimental show, probably in TV history. And most shows have finale that is highly sentimental. Right. And you just you couldn't do that on Seinfeld that would not have been true to the show. So I don't know what I would have done. It is tough one. Maybe it was the perfect ending wasn't a. You could make that case for sure. You know, I'd like to hear maybe if someone had a better idea. Okay. Right. Rewrite the Seinfeld finale. In one hundred sixty characters or less to us or to forty now. What is that? So weird. Anyway, I think that's the end of this episode. We kind of let this Peter out to. Yep. Okay. If you wanna learn more about good Samaritan laws actually a tip go. Learn your state and or countries good Samaritan laws. So you know what to do in your ever faced with an emergency situation. And since I said that it's time for listener mail. This one's great who's going to call it great Email guys in the spirit of thanksgiving in this glass of wine. I'm drinking.

Things about appreciable friends list is area that are monster. Not villain comes from. Hungary. In some strange village. Hundreds of great place. It's got a huge music tradition. But there was one thing that I just wanted to do with this character. I wanted to have a piece of music at the start that was absolutely beautiful and melting sometime around the middle. I wanted to become nauseous and terrifying by the end just wanted to even hearing it again to make you feel sick. You know that kind of thing. I don't know why wants to do that just did you know, I used to put police before when I was a kid. Fit the character. So. Then it was so melodic and almost the song puts you into a trance and a little bit of a way. And I remember the first time we shot that scene where you push in on both of us. And we're kinda I'm looking at her and she's just playing the song. And the song is, you know, hearkens back to the relationship with my mother because it's in a movie that we love together leaves from means a dream of love exactly is there's so many layers to it. We're just fell. Also, it was it was it was kind of a featured very heavily and all About Eve, remember. Yeah. The film that my mother, and I love have this thing this shop this scene. It's not in the movie anywhere in the movie. Of course, not no your list, you're looking watching all About Eve leaders from play it again. Are you playing with twenty five times? Well, again, the twenty six. I was under the ninth something like that. Yeah. Play it again. Anyway, it's in each party and all About Eve, they were sick of that too. It's a nauseating tune. When played too many times. Really? Anything heard that many times downing if you push it becomes kind of what happens in between the times, we hear it. Also doesn't hurt? Feel about. Is how we feel better. My guests are khloe grace merits and Neil, Jordan. We're talking about the film. Greg something I found really interesting in the film and another producer here. We both picked up on. It was that Greta the main character is really adept at technology. Yeah. That was interesting. Why did you make that choice was just to make sure the plot went four? She says, oh, I don't know how to use the phone just show me how to make a photograph taken photographs alleged. Okay. You know, come on. She's breadcrumbs before she. Yeah. Donald tries to get away from her. She you she kind of trolls through the internet, and the internet is terrifying. It's amazing. What you can find out us. But somebody within two seconds. You know, it's her accomplice in many ways hundred percents has got new girlfriend. I said he just give me your name. Okay. I just went on the nets within fifty minutes. I found out who. Worked where the mother came from. It was just it's terrifying. I think well, even with anybody the bone of obsessionally, given like an inkling to be obsessive the internet allows you just you just jump in having I'm not obsessive. But like if you want to dive deep on anyone can. We all have at some point. And so it's just I mean, it's someone that might have a, you know, chemical imbalance or something of the sides. You really puts you in a really weird place. It was interesting to watch, you know, in the house. She also hurt her how she could lie. She's so facile in her. I mean, just practically speaking I needed a device to enable us to believe she did what she did. I mean. So when she shares that those photographs for the father, the friend, which is, you know, and it's like, I could imagine somebody managing to swing something as creepiest on overtime. You definitely could. I think but enough photos and stuff. Yeah. Neil. You mentioned earlier how this part of Greta changed when he was cast Clem interested for you. What was it like to work with her? She's fuel legend hundred percent. I mean, she's she's an icon in French cinema. She truly is a massive pillar within it. For me. It was it was really enlightening. You know, she was I met her. I was terrified. I hope. She was you know, she's going to be nice to me a bit. She was more than the nice to me, we really became quite close during filming and we hung out off sad. And we would sometimes go and get a drink together after work and just hang out. And and she was she ended up being a confidante in a friend. And and I think what I really gleaned from my relationship with her. Gained know her over this time is that she is it constant student. You know, she always asked me questions, and she asked questions of people around her and she cared about my opinion on things, and my brothers opinion on things and she wanted to dive deep into those opinions be, you know, politics music, you know, my world her world, and I found that very interesting. You know, she didn't preach to me about what it's like to be in the industry for so long or anything like that. But she just treated me linear to herself. And I think that was that was really wonderful an incredibly welcoming. And it made me feel like I had a seat at the table, which wasn't really I think a gift treat. Did you take anything away from from this experience, and from her that you think you know, what this is going to be useful to me as an actress man, I think from every single experience, you know, be it a, you know, an interview to a a meeting to making a movie, I try to you know? Learn something from everything but with this one. I think what I really would say that. I probably learned the most is. How I mean, I've always learned this on each project. But it's really how important the personal relationship is in the safety. It is to be able to go to these places with someone comfortably, and it's you know, continued on every single project via the comedy, or or you have to have an actual personal relationship with those that you were working with and be able to have that come rotary there. So you feel like, you know, with your director with your actor, everyone that if you're going into these spaces that you can talk freely in that you feel supported by each other. And I definitely felt that on this project. You know, we had scenes where I'm very claustrophobic, and I had put in this very confining space center tied up in some scenes. Yeah. You went through a lot for selling from Neil to Isabelle's every single person was so wonderful, though. And gave me my time and gave me my space. And if I needed a break to walk off set it was there, and it just, you know, I'm continued to be amazed with people that that do take time with the Vadnais. Don't just treat. You like a I think actors have to to be good they have possessed, you know, right on I suppose to allow yourself to be possessed. You have to be in a safe environment. Don't you really? Right. It was interesting to see how Isabel became possessed. You know, it was very subtle. You know, those first few scenes that we were very realistic and sweet. Taking photographs of the dog and all that sort of stuff. I'm looking at among the okay? And I'm wondering should there be a dimension of threat there or not? But now, it's just simple and sweet and as the performances development as we got deeper into. Stories you realize, okay. So she has made the kind of quotidian elements of this. Character is important as the monstrous ones, you know, she's made it rather everyday appearance of this woman as important as the all the secrets that she's hiding, you know, it's the same with Chloe. I mean, I really think that your German is amazing. Oh, thank you sophistication. Thank you. Have you seen? Oh, yeah. It's it's interesting German. I don't I had to pretend. Thank you. I did I I had to learn fifteen pages of dialogue and German. And then learn it in English, and then I had to be able to jump in and out of German to English and make it seem real. The most extraordinary things real people ordinary people can't do they aren't extraordinary deal as a director. What did you? What did you think you needed to do? So that this film would be successful be successful. Yes. As drought. I've no idea. It's not financially. No, I don't. That'd be a good movie. I just felt a hat. I mean, I felt I had to push. It's very simple premise, you know, it's kind of a promise a friendship that goes horribly wrong. You know? I just felt I had to push the the implications of that premise far as they could possibly go on me. And it ends up in bondage in captivity. And I don't mean in a. In a real kind of emotional sense. Yeah. She's held captive by somebody else's desire on. I just felt I had to push that as far as we go. If it went into areas that were Rotestein fine. Let's go there went into areas that were bloody of monstrous, let's go there. It went into that were comic. Let's go there. And it went into all those areas, really. And that's what I just felt we had to do with this. And. I mean, when you start out making a film, you know, you have you have all these colors in your mind is like having a weird dream or something. You. No, you don't really know whether you achieve them all, but you have to you have to kind of peel the onion and get to. Rotten.
