"The ball forward Whatever you wanna call it and not very risky if that's spare and now we're in a time where i think while we're all at home. I'm seeing a lot more. People taking risks doing interesting projects and ideas but I perhaps like you. I'm kind of pessimistic. That if when things get back to normal that that feeling is gonna to stay with us. I don't know what do we do with it. Man yeah as i said reports all about the context of where you're listening to the things. Em makes sense at a festival. Were out of club when you're drunk already but yeah right now. There's no fun parties. So the people making idiom will naturally start making more heady Music thing that's the format that people are listening nowadays. Shown you know or if shows resume. Edm will probably survive that The only thing. Like i always think back to like the disco sucks movement thing could ever happen. I certainly not the pop powerhouse that it was maybe five years ago i think the sound the mainstream sound of pop had flirted with. Edm for a few years. But i think that's moved on a bit. Yeah now it's i mean to me and hip hop are very very close to the same thing at this point. What do you mean by that. That's an interesting statement in terms of like production sensibility and there's a lot of overlap with hip often electronic music. Now i take a lot of inspiration from the hip hop production. I'd actually be curious. Sort of what outside of electronic music. You listen to just in general. I'm not saying like what inspires you but but Yeah for me. I mean i get super inspired because listening to hip hop the really exciting stuff. This stuff being made by the young people. It's sort of what we were talking about earlier. That they don't they don't always know all the rules and so they don't even know that they're bragging half the rules and that is so excited to be who at this point knows too many rules right. Yeah exactly yeah for me. It's the same. I i been listening to more like modern hip hop more recently like before i was pretty like hip hop kinda died in twenty ten for me but nowadays i'm i'm being like a lot more open for my favorite hip hop producers. Were like mad. Live in devon kind. That china sound non electric. I listen to some so much for everything from rock like turkish funk from the seventies yet to pop even. I'm not ashamed to say i do. Listen to almost everything is music on frequently when you're are used someone who listens to a lot of music not really actually. It's not. I don't like i actively listen to music so i don't have it on possibly as much. I'm the same way actually. Yeah i noticed. A lot of producers are like that as well because it's such a it's hard to do something and have music playing when you want to pay attention to the music and if you don't pay attention to the museum chances are you don't want to listen to. Is it tough for you to just if something's on you can't stop analyzing it right. I mean sometimes. I'll put on those lo fi hip hop twenty four. Those are actually good as terms of like background music. But yeah i don't really have background music that much. I like to actively listen to things so it's not like on all the time my house red that makes sense and it's interesting because i never thought about this. What you just said is that that really is an art form in and of itself. Right is making background music. That sort of that's well made and pleasing collision to but really is unobtrusive. Doesn't get in the way of you know your thought process. Yes i love. I love that challenge. I've tried to make stuff like that before and really difficult like to to make something that that washes over you and you don't even notice is really difficult. And yeah that. That's what the whole skill of scoring music for. Tv and film is is doing exactly that trying to make something that you don't even notice that gives you an emotion. Yeah and that it you know. It's like a multimedia thing right where when all of the elements come together it creates this experience. But you can't really point to one or the other of why it sort of feels the way it feels. Yeah exactly so. I i love those little. Lo fi channels is full of great music. That does exactly that just washes on in the background nights miami and that makes me think about what you were talking about earlier with the the live show and the minecraft clearances and sort of building out the visual side of how you're presenting these songs and making it into sort of a a more full experience where it's not just the music right. Do you work with visuals. I mean i know. I i think we talked about you. Know you draw an and other things. How involved were you on the visual side. I actually drew the fire for this. So yeah. I've put a lot more visuals skills into the this laos minecraft event and also the visual stuff. I do all vows. Well how you're you're doing the whole thing. Yep exactly. I trigger it with Msci board in my actual people were you planning on doing live visuals for like show shows like tour shows. Are you thinking that yeah. I mean i've got this big project the kill the noise and for that one of our ideas on stage we would have leads of visual equipment so mess around with in addition to were union instead of the audio stuff So yeah that's always something i wanted to do for sure. It's funny man. i another little snippet. I heard of the last conversation we had two years ago. Was we were talking about working with jake and how you liked working with jake your whole history and then you you're saying basically yeah. I've got this big project with him. I can't get talk about it. But it's gotta be it's gotta be a weird feeling to have that sort of culminating and then not know what to do with it you hiring. It's good though to have that in our back pocket. For when touring resumes. But yeah it's definitely gonna be something. touring resumes. So you guys are thinking about it as as a live experience hardly to be us. That's what we wanted to do from the get-go. I'm sort of curious if that was the idea from the go. How does that affect the writing process. And how. You sort of conceptualize the whole project. Jake's genius arranger and he always thinks about that regardless he always has some kind of visual image in his mind wins arranging. Our tracks seem closes is visualize.

"I mean if you're on the train going to work and you have a fifteen minute commute then sure great to you know scroll a couple funny videos in re tweet some stupid thing you see. Then you're at work and your day continues but you know when you're sitting here for twelve hour. It's the preposition is a little different. Exactly yeah i. Let's talk a little bit more about the album. Because i think there's some connections there as well. It's a return for you to a few things from your past. Thread returned to anjuna. Beats you know why. Why now would is there something. You can point to of why this was sort of appropriate for you to do now. Wife felt good to do this now. Yeah i think my whole musical career. I've been trying to sort of explore. New sounds and find and get as far away from harry started as possible. But now i feel like i've explored a law ends revisiting. The things that got me excited about producing in the first place. I think that produced better music because it put me in that mindset of when i was like twelve or thirteen for discovering and you know just getting really excited about sitting down in front of it so i think that's what it came down to his Whatever made me most excited somewhat through nostalgia. I guess which is you know. I think one of i personally i mean that sort of wet drives a ton of my production decisions and everything. I'm trying to do on my best days. But i think also it reminds me of your quote that i said earlier about sort of taking the pre idiom production mindset of yesteryear and trying to sort of war that into the future and i think you achieve that really well on the album but for you. Is there something about your even for you. Creatively like your early production style or ideas. You're trying out at the time. Is there an appeal to sort of go back to like a more primitive or a younger version of yourself and see how you can sort of rican text to allies that. Yeah i mean. I guess that's exactly what the album was trying to go back to my younger self. Yeah take all the knowledge that i've learned and put it in to what i would have wanted to make back then. I think this is for everybody the moment that they their discovery period is always the most romantic part of their whole existence yet. Always look back to them for inspiration. Yeah i don't think it's any different for anybody. That was the time where you had the most emotional reaction to the music. You're making i feel like that's that's just a it's like you're more sensitive. Turn yet to music in general but especially to whatever you make like the time when you would make anything and if it wasn't just complete noise it would just it would sound amazing to read capturing that excitement of a really enjoying the process and the result even if the result looking impact back was terrible one hundred percent and i mean also. It's a return to you a return for you to anjuna. It's but i thought it was an interesting choice for the album. Because i think your album doesn't exactly sound like a lot of what they put out. And so you know for you. Obviously you have a relationship with them you know them they know you but when you're turning in these songs what was the reaction from the label. How was it working with them on a project like this. They were really excited about whatever i think. So is great Yeah they were looking. I think that's why they wanted to sign. My next albums has They wanted to push their sound a little bit more. Yeah i to me. It's more in line with jimmy than anything i've ever done. It made sense to me. I think you captured the spirit of it right. And i think that this is what we've been talking about right as it's That sort of bigger concept the feeling of it. The vibe of it right and if you look back in the jews catalog when they started their sound was all over by and Yeah i think that's really the heart avenging abuses this Varied varied technical styles but all with the same emotional quality. I wouldn't say saint motion but every everything is really emotional. That's a good way to put it and you did a mix for them to right. There was sort of a retrospective of their catalog. Yep how was that man. That's that must've been fun to category through memory lane a little bit. Yeah absolutely Yeah ton of a ton of stuff on that accomplish in that like really affected me musically growing up. My music would sound different. If it weren't for those tracks so yeah. It was great to be able to do that in all of this. What i'm thinking about is we're in this time that we've talked about where there's a lot of uncertainty but there's also a lot of potential for experimentation and new ideas and people having a second to a few seconds to breath read and to think about what they're doing and to think about the intention analogy of why they're doing it for me it makes me think about sort of the state of the whole thing right now and i guess what i want to talk about just for a second is sort of what what do we do with. Edm at this point. Because i think there's been for years this sort of sense from the artist community that a lot of this is kind of. I don't wanna say boring necessarily but just sort of not progressive and sort of just kicking the can down the road or pushing. The ball forward Whatever you wanna call it and not very risky if that's spare and now we're in a time where i think while we're all at home. I'm seeing.

"Airbnb is likely to make the paperwork for an initial public offering public this afternoon. And that makes it set to be one of the biggest filings of the year. Reuters estimates the company could be worth as much as thirty billion dollars in his host of the exorcist. Recap podcast he's also a business editor at axios. And he's here with the scoop. Good morning. Good morning if you were not paying attention to the market or you don't know anything about ipo's what is to you the most interesting thing about airbnb and what we're going to see this week with it. The most interesting thing about airbnb is that it has survived this. It seems the pandemic better than have the company's trying to disrupt namely the hotel companies. Airbnb problems this year had layoffs this. Ipo is coming much later than the company had hoped. But compared to hotels airbnb seems to be thriving so when we think about sort of this gig economy door dashes also supposed to go public later. This year. I wonder what you think these two. Ipo's will tell us about the role. These types of companies will play in the tech economy of the future. These were both questionable business models as far as silicon valley and particularly wall street were concerned and the fact that they took the punch and seem to have got off the mat and started punching back. I think it's going to be something wall. Street's gonna take a real hard look at in view very positively.

"Reaction around the world to the Biden presidential win? CBS's Holly William's reports from Moscow from America's friends, including Israel, there were the normal Matting niceties. The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was all smiles, even though Joe Biden has called him a clone of President Trump. I look forward very much to working with President Biden and there were fireworks in India. Celebrations in the ancestral village of Vice President elect Kamala Harris. Many around the world, perhaps even here in Russia will welcome the return of a more predictable, more conventional American foreign policy when President elect Biden takes office, perhaps, although the Kremlin says Russian President Putin will not congratulate Biden until legal challenges to the election are resolved. And the result is official

Where do the Cowboys go from here? To the trade deadline — but as sellers instead of buyers

"The Cowboys easier to write about when they win or when they lose? Uh, they're easy to write about what they lose. When they win. People feel good. You sell more newspapers when they win. That's a proven thing. So there's that. But, man what you know now, sometimes when they're bad, they're just not interested. And they just kind of go away. Like I don't know what it's like to right about when the Detroit Lions are bad. They probably just people are waiting for the Red Wings to drop the puck. But when the Cowboys are bad, there's usually nine different things in Iraq, And this year there, there might be that might be multiplied. So there's you can just pick out of a hat. And and and go from there. What is Jerry? June Jones do now? You know, one of the really disappointments with serious disappointments, obviously of code. But one of the rial lighter disappointments of this year is that he doesn't do press conferences after every game, because I can't imagine. What level he would have reached yesterday. Um, you know, it's Tze one thing to get beat up by Seattle or airy Arizona's offense. They can't stop the run. With anybody, not the Washington football team. They run for over 200 yards. And if you want to pick one area of the Cowboys that does not beat up my injuries. Their front seven They've got Jalen Smith. They got banned arrest. They've got the Marcus Lords they've got. They've got elegance. They got Everson Griffen. They got Tyrone Crawford. They got guys were supposed to be there, and they can't tackle anybody. And then you have the hit on Andy Dalton and that nobody seems to concern about the chief shot by Jon Bostic. That wasn't it took the announcers of minutes to kind of recognize, but they did eventually, So okay, that's that's a brutal Yep. Be Amari Cooper is standing there and there's others around there had to be a number of players see it. I would think the entire offensive line and to see it. On nothing. Nothing at all. I mean, I can't imagine. If that was Dad getting hit like that that they wouldn't have done something but that that just pointed to the the give up factor of this team they looked like in the first quarter. They're out there to see when it's going to go badly, and you know how much it's going to feel like a ground hog day. They got nothing on either side of the ball, but quitting is worse than losing to him. Yeah. And of course, coaches will always and players will fight. You didn't quit. Everybody has a great attitude by when you see something like that, and when you see it That And when you see a team that just gets gassed in the run and announcers every week, whether it's the money, night crew or yesterday was was Moose. Ah lot of destroyed job back and they get very quickly. The out of position on these place. They really get outflanked quickly without defense. I mean, they're they're talking around the fact that team looks very poorly prepared and has no idea what to do in the players. Never respond if Jerry had to do over coaching. Well, I mean, that's what What was it about Mike McCarthy flying in and spending one night at the Jones house and all they were just so wowed by this guy. They couldn't believe it. Now, what have you seen in any game that he brings? You didn't call the plays so anytime the offense was playing well earlier in the year, That's Kellen Moore is offense. So what is he doing over there that he brings Emily brought in all these coaches? Guys he had in Green Bay 10 years ago. Mike Nolan, who hired him 20 years ago. It's just this. This cronyism tied coaching staff. And you wonder, and you wonder how much Jerry thought about like a mat rule. He mentioned Matt Rule one time last December, just after Baylor played in the Big 12 championship game. What a great young coach to thought. Matt Rhule wass. And you're Matt Rhule took over a team that was just God awful and got ready Cam Newton, and they released whatever they are three and four. They compete. Uh, yeah. I mean, I don't know. I don't know that he wouldn't like to rethink this lot. Now it's the first year so I think both the pandemic the DAC injury, the offensive line being completely wiped out. Those going allow the coaches to skate for year. But he has to be thinking this. This may have been a Terrible higher. The Cowboys buyers or sellers at the trade deadline. You know, I don't think they have a lot to sell. I heard somebody saying trade one of their wide receivers. They don't need that many hundreds of it. That's the one thing they have is good wide receivers. You want to trade one of those go You know, Draft Ah, linebacker with a neck injury. That's what that's what excites you about rebuilding the team. I don't think they will do much. There's certainly not Myers, they get by. I mean, I don't know why in the world you would add. Do it to a terrible collection of talent as this many injuries, but I don't expect him to do a lot, actually.

Getting Past Our Bias and Unconscious Judgements Howard Ross - burst 11

"Yeah. We all know the Maslow's pyramid the hierarchy of needs right and you know the history of motivation which by the way, we have constantly in psychological research have said, you know, that's really not true. That really doesn't work that way. And Howard it demonstrates a flaw because well, I'm going to let you tell them, you know his big sure because right because our the primary need a name is that you know, it's it's our it's our physical. It's our physical needs are the primary needs and you it's right but Harry Harlow and I will let you take it away. Okay, great. Yeah. Well actually, you know Abraham Maslow created is model 1943. And for those who don't know is basically model needs is considered to be a foundational model in bondage psychology. And it was really it's really important work because it does have us look at human-to-human a tax people but Amazon created a hierarchical structure for these needs and and as you're saying Jay, it starts at the lowest level with our physiological needs food sleep that sort of thing and above that safety wage above that belonging and above that self-esteem and finally what he calls self-actualization which is when we fully realize ourselves as human beings and and for the most part that that has gone unchallenged wage. 270 years at any major way, but we now realize and and some of it is by sending functional magnetic magnetic resonating imagery. You can see which parts of the brain trigger in certain ways. We now realize that something was wrong that that that that belonging is actually a key human need and it makes sense. If you think about it, you know, what's the most vulnerable type of human being's existence infancy? Right? And if you don't belong to a gym is an infant you die and so for the first get and because human beings are more dependent on others to survive in our first couple of years than any other animal on the planet the key message that we get in the early stages of our life is Faith exists because you exist whether your Mom Dad Grandma Grandpa or whatever and so we've been we've been raw and and when we look at things like, you know a suicide bombing whether it was, you know, the Japanese in World War Two or Palestinians today or or other, I mean obviously completely refutes Maslow's notion because in there you see the need to belong to the needs of my larger group or more important in my physical needs now, he's As a footnote to the shape since I wrote the book and and and talking about this I've spoken a lot as as we talked about already and I was at a major university speaking about this and this guy comes up to me afterwards and he says he was actually a direct disciple of Maslow's. He was a student of Madison mezzo died very young but he died in his fifties or heart attack and he told me that at the time that he was working with mezzo, which was toward the end of his life. I was Furious to everybody put it in this. In this pyramid structure cuz that wasn't his original structure that he never apparently saw it as as as as hardened in a hierarchical structure as it was later drawn up now. I don't know whether that's true or whether the guy loved Maslow and he was trying to protect him or not, but I just don't know but if we look at these needs we can see and and and other people like I said for example would be the great Dutch sociology organization sociologist has said that Maslow's hierarchy also applies more in individualistic cultures. Zinc elected absolutely. So if you go to places like like Asia where the cultures are, mostly collectivist the group needs are by far more important than individual needs. So so it's it's so important that we don't that we behave. Like I said, I've said numerous times that we question some of these models that have been so foundational to us because this need to belong to fit in is undoubtedly primary for most of us. In fact, we know that being excluded from a group home in the door. So posterior insular the brain which is the same part of the brain associated with physical paint, you know, I just as a just as an an anecdotal practical level of them, I say this regularly I said this to the college students when I taught psychology, you know, if if if that pyramid and whether it was true or not that it was a pyramid if that was true age understand that you would not have a desire to text message while you drive if your safety was so important. Exactly, but because you want to belong want to be part of the conversation, you will text and drive at the Peril of your safety physical safety. Look I can give you a more basic need how many people who are listening to us have been in a meeting at work. You had to go to the bathroom and you sat there squirming rather than be the first one to stand up and leave the meeting go to the bathroom right now. There's no more basic physically than that right and yet we could all relate to that story. You didn't want to get out. You didn't want to be the one who stood upright. Yes, and and and it's a prayer mat example what you're talking about the need it in the group and not be seen as an outsider by the group members, even that basic physical need of elimination. So so so we know that this is true as human beings. That's awesome. His name is Howard J. Ross the book entitled everyday bias and you are listening to him here on a new Direction. Hey everybody. I

Sharing data

"Back in Twenty Sixteen Semaj Arash had day job at the time I was working for a race equality charity but he always had an eye out for a story. The charity he was working for have been doing all kinds of research into the hostile environment an impact the government's immigration policy was having on various areas of life. Now, this was before the wind rush scandal broke said, it wasn't really much discussion going on about this. But Samir was interested in finding out more. At the end of two thousand sixteen. I started looking into data sharing agreements that been I. Think one that was nine about the time which was around the around healthcare data being shed with the heightened office. Then around the same time that was issue around education data. So the the people census essentially kind of being being shed potentially being used to target families because they had enrolled, they're in school. So we knew of some official organizations sharing information with. Authorities. But what about the please he wanted. So. I had a theory which was that. I wanted if victims of crime would be caught up in in this system as well. Man You police would work with immigration officials when handling the perpetrators of crime he wondered if the same was true for those who were victims of criminal acts, this was too big a topic to look into on his own after all he was working full-time in his day job. He needed help any new just who to contact. I'm Natalie blamer relaunch journalist. Nazli was working politics, dot co DOT UK and the powerful report about immigration authorities targeting people who are homeless. She hadn't spoken to Samir before, but his was a name she recognized. Followed the twitter and I think we've had a few interactions on twitter and it was shortly after I published The holiness story that he contacted me and said I'm looking into data share in between different organizations in the Home Office would like to. Do that with me and he explained he was he had two full time job and he was quite limited in how much she could do during the day. and. It was. It was it sounded really interested in it was. You know the areas that I was interested in. And so I agree very quickly and so Nutley and submit decided to start working together sharing tips divvying up the workload. We've naturally making calls during working hours and submitted digging away the data when he could we have a very good workmanship we've actually continued to work together since then really. Because I think we have different. Skill sets and. Different strengths the allow us to work together and sort of. US each of other's strengths are for things that we might found more tricky. Their first port of call was to draft some freedom of information requests. They wanted to ask the police if and when they worked with immigration officials. So we sent off some a couple of freedom.

Yeah I a long and harrowing experience from information requests like light might based. Let's say you have to think through what the piece of information or document that your looking for is, and you have to define it as clearly a narrowly as you possibly can.

What is your policy on this? And if possible, provide the documentation. They waited. And waited. And then the response came back urban but thinking, Gotcha now this is this is significant. The. Met Police had admitted through the response that they would pass on details of by victims and witnesses of a crime if there were concerns over their immigration status. Migrants support groups reacted with shock warning that people would be scared to report crimes. If they feared, they could be deported as a result.

The first three matches I think combined took about as long as the team Schwartzman match did yesterday's it's just a very different pace to the day. But what I would say is that all the winners were probably the ones we would have expected to win just about they're probably the favorites and they've set up to very exciting semifinals of come from these matches. So as much as today didn't always hold my interest for the entire day in terms of the competitiveness of the matches I think they've set us up for a couple of very, very exciting semifinals

Midnight Moment - First Presidential Debate - Intro

"Patriot Nation. Welcome page midnight Mamma's special post-debate addition. It is Spartan here with you got my cryptic and welcome to the post dumpster fire of Flash show analysis Les rolled off. All right. So we put out taking a few days to actually put this podcast together this particular Edition cuz we wanted to allow ample time for our for our fans are on our Facebook page to actually comment and give their opinions of what we all we all witnessed. I'll just call it that and kind of help us decide who won the debate now. Everybody's got their everybody's got their, you know for seventies and opinions for sure. But that said I think you know regardless of what side the aisle you sit on the overwhelming opinion is is should show a cryptic any thoughts on that. I don't know if we could sum it up any better. I mean, yeah, that's exactly what it was is a complete freaking shitshow wage at times. It looked like a freaking kindergarteners trying to fight over who's ball. It is too and I think it's who on one debating he has a another another another job. Gee what I mean, if there's any professional wrestling fans or ex fans or whatever these questions it looked like one of those three-way handicap matches Trump versus the versus the moderator and versus Joe Biden all cells, but that's just my opinion going cryptic. Oh, no, that's exactly what it came off to be is I think it was something that looked like it was should have been a fair debate that many can attest to that. It wasn't. Yeah and it changed from what should have been Trump versus buy them to wash versus by tan and Chris or Trump versus Chris or Trump versus Biden. I mean, it was just a shitshow of you know biding doing all the name calling Joe's. Yeah that and there's a I'll get into in my analysis. I'll bring it up as far the tactic Biden used and it's it's actually a fairly well-known debate tactic as most of you know, I am a girl They master debater and accounting or English and I'll get into that in my kind of summation and Analysis of it. We have that we the topic of the six six sections cryptic. Once you once explain that to our our fans what were the six seconds? So we got we the six segments. So the first segment was the coronavirus which I mean girls hugging surprised. I mean that's like one of Biden's to bullet points for his entire platform besides problems bad is the coronavirus and how magically he's going to have some way to fix it besides the fact of masking the entire nation, which don't even get me started on that. Well, you know, it must be it must be a good feeling to know if you're Joe Biden age and you're as in your as low intelligence and high dementia as you clearly is, you know that we need to get an office how much money the military is going to save on gas masks and yep. Like filters because you know clearly all we have to do based on the overall effectiveness of cloth mats for the deadliest virus in history is that you know, they can just issue the military cross Mass to walk into a job. That had infections on so that must that must make him feel real good that so besides that that's the first segment the next segment at the issues they talked about is the economy which you know, that was one that will get into that had one of my one of my favorites interactions burping the two that will get into the third one was the Supreme Court which will cover their the fourth one was race and violence in American cities and phone number so classic denounced white supremacy, but you know, we're not going to take that about antifa or demand that I mean, it's only happened twenty two times previously, so nobody else. What any of those so yeah, go ahead. Sorry. Yes. Yeah, cuz you can't do research then the next segment. The next segment is Trump's and vitamins records for their time in a government.

This drug is designed to stop the virus from mats producing inside the body. And the FDA has authorised its use, but specifically for people who are sick enough that they need help breathing. You know when it was tried in people with mild to moderate symptoms that actually didn't seem to help, But I should say that observation was based on a small sample, so we don't really know exactly where this drug is useful and a video president Trump tweeted last night, he said. He is feeling better, but at the next few days of his treatment will be the real test. The video came after contradictory messages that cause some confusion about his condition.

Overcoming Fear

Now For Tomorrow with Deepak Chopra

Overcoming Fear

"Hello. I'm Deepak Chopra and this is now for tomorrow. A collection actions you can do now during this time of disruption and crisis. To. Make. Tomorrow, better. Than today I want to take a moment to help things -iety in a time of crisis. The current pandemic of the covid nineteen. Has brought in its wake a different pandemic of anxiety and uncertainty. Sigmund Freud said that things -iety is like an unwelcome guest that refuses to leave. You are forced to adapt to its presence. How do people usually adapt to feel Psychologically. The do most important with are denied and distraction. By knowing your anxiety or doing something that takes your mind off it. You might find temporary relief. But is this something more permanent and effective? Can you get this unwelcome guests to leave? Yes, you can. The secret is to make conscious choices that goes feel to shrink away because you no longer needed. Fear is a holdover from early evolution rooted in the fight or flight response. It lies in wait. Ready to spring into action as it did for Hamad ancestors. Over two million years ago. But for the last ten, thousand years. The higher or conscious breed has evolved. And with it came infinite resources of thought. Feeling. Creativity and choice making. We were set free from primal fear. All we have to do is choose the bottom of consciousness. which is the bottom of inner wisdom. This is a theme I would be returning to over and over. Because the true secret making tomorrow better than today. is to, choose to, wake up. To make the right choices you need to be conscious of what fear is doing to. Fear is a form of stress. And you can choose to release that stress. That's where today's homework gums. You need nothing this homework except yourself. And comfortable place to lie down. Once, you're lying down comfortably on the carpet or a Yoga Mat. I'll offer an effective and very simple yoga pose known as Shabas. Where you simply lie still. REAP. And consciously relax. Lying on your back. Place your feet eighteen inches apart with your arms at your side bombs up. Close. Your eyes. Settle into the position. And breed naturally. Put your attention on your bread feeling your jest rise and fall. On the out bet, let your lungs deflate with this guy. EASILY BREATHING Then exile with the CY. Feel yourself becoming deeply relaxed. And continue for five to ten minutes. Now think into this relaxed feeling. To, exit the bows. Don't just get up quickly or go into activity. Easily turn and stretch has if you will waking up in the morning. Open, and close your hands. Then Open your eyes and get up without moving quickly into activity. You are relaxed and in control. Remember this feeling. Later in the day, if fear anxiety comes back tap into this feeling of es and relaxation. Let's broaden the discussion a little bit. Modern Life makes room for many words but very few in what's. A stock fact in Morton life is that more money power status position don't bring inert fulfillment. In fulfillment is found along a different path. In the ancient wisdom traditions of India life presented to butts. The birth of pleasure and the but the wisdom. Every wisdom tradition east and West is based on waking up, which means in practice getting over your unconscious behavior and adopting conscious behavior instead. You're already doing that in our discussion of how fuel works. You are waking up to discover that fear doesn't have to be in charge. You might not think of this as. Budget. Tips. Every moment of inner wisdom is simply a moment of becoming more conscious and aware. I encourage all of you to try Shabas now. Taking five to ten minutes to read out stress and breeding relaxed. May Not seem like much. But such small steps will help you reassert control over your personal reality lessening the grip of fear and uncertainty.

It's meant to have specific things for remand group for women with. All different diverse populations jim more general groups, and their moderated by therapists with group therapy on the therapists is present to kind of the conversation. Keep it going. got it will. We'd planned to charge a small fee to join a group on. Join whenever you want, and then code it and. We saw I. Mean Everyone's world was turned upside down and. People that struggle with alcohol. were cut off from support. Alcohol sales are up and. I said on like this. We don't make us free. We have to make this free. I knew our treatments only fun. States and I knew that this would be something really important in helpful for people. So when we launched on Monday, we launched with moderated. The therapist moderated support groups and their free. Entirely across the country, and you know my goal, initially you know in the short term is together in front of his many people as possible so the first portion of it with just you know getting information and education and resources that is available for anyone correct. which is in support kind of table, stakes for community used to be supported right, and then the second part, which is the option of? Medication is available in five states. Is that right correct, so It's it's being connected to a physician or therapist or one or the other You can be therapy without. The physician or physician without the therapy and then Yeah, that's available on five states, treatment plants. And, then the third part, which just launched is a moderated group therapy is also available in those five states, or is it available for anybody? That's nationally okay. That's why I was so excited. Nationally. So, we're able to get how to people through those groups where we don't in forty five states where we don't have treatment of you gotTa. That's why I was Kinda. So excited about awesome congratulations. Thank you. Gosh for doing everything that you're doing well. My last my last question before I rapped up. Take us out of here. Is what advice do you have to the person who wants to quit? They don't know how they don't know where to start. What advice would you give them? I would set you know I think for me. I created so many hurdles. You know this is going to be our. That's going to be hard. This is going to be hard. Asleep just learn learn about options you know. If if monuments agree place to do that, you know I believe it is obviously but. If. It is joined in learning. There's no more commitment than that. It's anonymous. It's free taken the information and kind of understands. Know where you stand, learn from others read. An answer those two questions you know. If. You're asking yourself. Do you think yet, do I think I have an issue or whatever we'd about it talk talk to people anonymous- anonymously in a safe place, and get to your answer and You know if you do that elsewhere. Great to in that I think the second thing is. Understand the options there options out there and you know. I think it's important. Everybody understands all the different options and chooses the want. That's best for them and from there. You're I think wants. Those two questions are answered. It makes it just a little bit easier kind of knowing that the information you have the information you're. You're armed with it, and it makes it easier to them. Take that next step all those bad things. I worried about happening No friends my job there so that everyone will he'd be ever judge. None of that happened. And in fact, it was the exact opposite, and if I could look the world how I do now, you know back in February two, thousand, eighteen, two plus two and a half years ago.

"Me, did you? Stick to the one kind of therapy, or have you progressed into anything different in the past couple of years that you've been sober? Yeah, so I only I started the therapy until. They, don't see your after and now on sticking with. A specific to what will occur will kind of surface after you change your drinking and they advised that should be about a year. Until. You have the tools to be able to manage it. I think I'm getting there. I don't know how others are but I've. Struggled with managing it a little bit more. Maybe than than some other people, but I might progress has been phenomenal and. Remind myself it's not perfect. It's not a straight line, but I'm definitely. In such a positive direction. Well, know, there's a question I. Ask everyone on the show and it might be different in your case. I'm not sure you know I always ask. If alcohol is but a symptom, you know. What was the root cause of your drinking, but we know that you were only drinking a couple times a month. was there any sort of emotional issue? That? You were drinking over or for you. Is it just a physical like? I want to have a drink and then it doesn't stop. That's good question I mean I can tell you how thanking but I. I don't really know kind of the route. The railroad 'cause and I think after I went through the cancer experience I I came out of that and just went from a conservative. You know person to you know I might die any damage to do whatever I want. And I just started drinking Andrey and I just think it became such a big part of my life. And then there was the continuation of that through an eight year business that was. Heavily centered around drinking and another eight years of my life, and I think that was just always ingrained as part of my. My everyday life for so long. If I had to guess, I would say just drinking like that for so long. was kind of the reason not say what started. It was coming out of that. He therapy in the cancer in feeling, traumatized and feeling like I was GonNa die, and you know, and then just a mentality. I came out with was. Like a different way of thinking that I had thought prior to that experience. I. Mean That's basically you know I i. don't know if you had any therapy to deal with the you know the stress of having to handle. A life threatening cancer I mean we. Are you saying that it was you know there are some unaddressed trauma. Adams sure I mean I had him using support. While is going through. It that was ten weeks, and then I went right off the school i. don't understand how anybody couldn't be traumatized by something like that. I mean if you're listening and you've been through that and you weren't hit experience. No trauma like call me because I want to know what you're probably a superpower or something I don't know. What we're what people's reactions when you told them that? You're quitting drinking? So that's funny. That's the most amazing story so I. I think part of the benefits of having cancer is. On the side of drinking because I. Don't you know I kind of don't really? Have many carriers. I think you know whatever. You know I didn't have many cares about posting on and telling the world, and the way monument launched, was I wrote a story about myself, and I posted on my facebook, and I still was a little worried. Mostly this finally, the the people I was worried about the most for my parents so I called them like a week before I posted it. And I'm sure they knew because they knew I was working on it and I told them. The situation and that was probably the hardest part, but what I posted it as like all right, you know maybe. Get ridiculed judge whatever it was ease, act opposite. It was unbelievable influx of support. It was people congratulating people reaching out people offered to help. People haven't spoken to years sharing their stories. That I had no idea what we're happening. People. I never spoken to you before in my life contacting me in getting to speak to them, your nurse Sports. Did you have anybody telling you that? that. You didn't have a problem because you have to do that. Whole reverse intervention and try to convince somebody that yeah you actually do have a issue with alcohol. Yes I. Think I didn't necessarily have anyone telling me. I did have a problem like well. You know what I mean like that kind of disbelief I think it was I think at least I thought generally. Who Do the general picture that's been painted about those who struggle with alcohol? It's very Severe case and you know I was drinking once every other week, so didn't see to the outside world that there was anything wrong. Just when I want to stop, and I said it was going to have pretty supportive by generally go great, you know. I never even thought yet initiative, but. I got that a lot like I never would have thought I never knew, but it wasn't people telling me. Oh. You're fine. I never had that I just. Think you know they're. Lucky to have a good support, upper diem misset, diverse stop and go. Maybe I won't. Maybe I won't take my medicine today, and maybe I'll just go out tonight and just Taiwan. So funny. I never think that. There's no part of me that would ever want to not take it. Honestly I. Tell You there's there's a shortage of. The medication I take and I think now it's it's starting to not be, but I was starting to get concerned because I know for a fact if I stopped taking the medication all drink I don't miss drinking, but I miss kind of some of the fun dimes. Some fun things that happens, but I don't miss the drinking and I think I've gotten to the point where I had equally or better fun times, not drinking. that I wouldn't miss. It is the right word, but I think about it I was like Oh. That was so much fun, but it's never to the point where our I should drink again to do it. Right well, that's that's this weird piece that you don't realize until you get sober that like there are so many times when we had so much fun when we went out, and even though alcohol was part of the equation, it wasn't the root of the equation like sometimes. You're just having fun. Because the PL- you know the time is right the people right the places right all. All the stars align and it, and it's just magnetic, and it just so happens that everybody's drinking while it happens, but that's not necessarily always the.

"Like a high functioning person like not very. I wasn't a daily drinker. Drinks problem once every other week. And my challenge was been shrinking. Got It got it and tell us a little bit about you. Now you know what you do for a living where you live age family anything like that I'm happily married I have two wonderful kids I live in Hoboken New Jersey outside new, York City and currently relocated to our summer home. I would have been. I don't know how long I've been here. Because kind of all blurs together like we're, we're. We're living here. We're in time. So. You know in Margate. City New Jersey about a block from the beach. which is awesome, and then I have also my family and my sister, my sister in law, my brother law and their two kids. Here's while so we a lively wonderful home. Very lucky. Circumstances Nice Little Coruna OAC's. Yeah. Let's get into it. Let's let's about your story, and if you would tell us in ten minutes or less, you drink how long it was a problem and why you decided to stop High School I. Think I. I didn't drink a lot. I drank little bit It wasn't a big part of my life very much into sports, student, government and right between high school and college. I just out of nowhere. came down with a non Hodgkin's lymphoma and is very surprising to me. traumatic obviously, and I checked into hospital had wonderful doctors in went through chemotherapy at I, was very fortunate to. Be Able to go to college a semester late and come out in full recovery, but I think things kind of change for me there and when I did get to college, I started to drink pretty frequently and I would say that was like the point when. I started to drink a law you know throughout college pretty consistent. In then I graduated moved to Manhattan, and I had a job in banking, and I was trying to Ford my rent so I had a side hustle in Bayliss. Promotions, which again weeds bit more drinking within two years, I had the nightlife promotions business was actually producing more income from you than my job, so I left my job and I went into that industry time for about eight years, and that was eight years more shrinking, and towards the end I met my wife, and I wanted to kind of have a career change and I knew if I wanted to have a family and it was pretty clear she wanted. To Change? In order to have a family I did eventually I was thought. Hey, you know this is probably circumstantial. It'll go away, but I ended up moving into technology, which is eventually where I wanted to be I wasn't a simple transition, but I got there and the drinking go away, just kind of morphed in I from there was. A trigger drinker I wasn't drinking. Galley I didn't have cravings. I never thought about drinking but I'd hit a trigger. You know out with friends out to dinner on vacation and say I'm GonNa have one or two drinks. Inevitably, it was countless number of drinks, and that was my challenge. So once you started. You did not have a stop. Button it just. Just kept going. It just kept going and I. Actually starting tracking it, so if I knew I was going to be the trigger situation. I have a success failure spreadsheet at it was just one hundred percent failure. Wow, I love. You have a spreadsheet of your drinking. That's awesome. Yeah, so got to the point I think things were changing in my life I had kids, and the big thing for me is like sleeping through my son's soccer practice is not going to get a bed for that and I do WanNa drink anymore. Honestly like it wasn't a huge. Problem it was little problems, but I just wanted to stop, and once I looked at that spreadsheet. I came to terms with the fact that I couldn't do it on my own, and that's when I started to seek out treatment options now. Quick question before we move into your how you got help when you were in those like you said trigger situations. If you thought you wanted to have a drink or two. Did you ever stop and go well I know that when I drink. I always have more than I want, so I'm just going to choose not to like. Were you both fighting with the ability to say no to drinking as well as stopping at one or two I think it was a struggle for both I. Think I continued to convince myself I could do it. Okay Yeah The purpose of the spreadsheet. I definitely get up one tonight. You know it's not you know it's a different setting I always had a reason but inevitably the result was always the sick. And then how tell me about like your behavior while you're binge drinking? Were you a blackout drinker? Did you ever like you know we? Did you behave in a way? That was embarrassing or was it just that you just couldn't stop and felt like shit the next day you know I would not have blackout drinker. Actually you. I've been told that I'm probably one of Los. Entertaining drunk people Anyone's ever met I didn't really do much damage to anybody outside of myself. which forced! And year. I think that is a big consequences for me was. A late function the next day and You know I just it just kind of became a problem in the sense that like the one day over turned into two, and then I run a decent size company at the time. I felt like I wasn't getting back to a normal head state for Dayton's NAFTA. Yeah, that's crazy that happened and it's like it's not just like. Oh, it'll wear off by noon. It's like okay like it's been two days and I still feel like hot garbage yet. Another crazy thing that happened to me and this was. Many years ago, actually stopped drinking. I think it was a couple of months maybe six months prior to fully stopped. I was getting anxiety use was alcohol induced Zaidi and it made me so dizzy. I could barely walk at times and I thought it was vertigo I went. Two EMT's I got tested for disease has always stop. It ended up. Being alcohol induced anxiety and I was forced to stop drinking because I live down the street, and it was that bad. Was the anxiety hitting you while you were drinking or like? When you were hung over from it the next day? yeah, and it was coupled with panic attacks and I think I got the anxiety under control I stopped drinking because I knew I couldn't function and. At that point I got through a few months and I said Oh probably China. Came back and. Same thing sampling. How old were you when you got sober in February of two thousand eighteen? It's a good question what you're doing now. It's twenty twenty twenty twenty, so I'm currently thirty, nine, thirty, eight, thirty, seven, thirty seven. Thank you all right. We're both were killing it together. Our brains equal one right now. Awesome! Sometimes, it's helpful for people to get a frame of reference to your story as knowing how old you were. When you quit, so that'll help. He was thirty seven, thirty seven, and actually it was it was. A month after I had my company acquired which I've been working on for quite some time. And that was a very big deal for myself. My friends, my family and then. About a month later, I stopped drinking and what was funny, as it would get into this later all the challenges like the mental health behavioral. Health challenges that arose have.

"Victor Academy right after so. Wait who who are the voters. What are the voting mechanism? And how does it work. How can we diversify the voters to try to to make sure that there are nominees? That are a little bit more. In keeping with the American society and some of the trump getting made there has been pretty public scrutiny and watchdog array of the Oscar voting body. I think last attention is probably been paid to any voting processes which are fascinating and weird and grammy voting processes which a number of reporters including our team were. Were digging into this year in advance. Dance of Deborah Juban Dugan taking over just because it seemed like an interesting story and then essentially the woman who'd been brought in to reform the whole institution which in addition to teaming about it out of touch and nominating awarding Dad Rock and ignoring rap. And you know he plotted on Makomo or well ignoring whoever it was that they argue that they gave produce more but kids can't. Yeah the Pulitzer winning rapper. Kendrick Lamar someone definitely probably more enduring talents. I think fair to say on the cultural scene and The the kind of famous looseness of the grammys. You know would also marked by this controversy a couple years ago when the outgoing prior Chief of the recording academy now in a year when no women were mood or one dead at the Post grammys print infamously that maybe women should should step up suggesting. Oh if they only made better music than maybe they'd retrograde so the question of who exactly giving you the words and how how fairly and transparently has been burgling for the last couple of years. You know last year's winners were strikingly more female. And I think the thing that's interesting to try to read into. Oh this year. Is there a money. And it's like the Billy Irish when you know an old guard hyper controlling the process trying to manage their reputation Asian by honoring You know they talented young woman. Who Sprung Not really from the recording industry but from her own bedroom or do her win suggests the actual green shoots of maybe the new properties that Deborah Dugan with trying to put into place before she was ousted ten days before the award show? She'd brought in report like it's just like literally they brought in a new leader burnt the house to the ground like three days before the show. And I think Carl's right that only the only reason it wasn't a major subject to the show and then you know possible for him for speeches and other further prominent is because of the kind of tobacco reverend's around respect shocker. Kobe's death in the place. The Lakers play to be swept this crazy controversy to the side in a very off kilter fashion. Yeah absolutely absolutely and I think that You can see the bill Sweep a bunch of ways and definitely part of it I think there was some gender consciousness and and an embrace it the new generation. I mean I think it even though you know I love work. And what she and her brother producing at home famously. MM-HMM ASLI but it's really a bit of a smokescreen to suggest that she's any industry outsider and I think anybody who watches the industry closely closely would have predicted that she would do well. Because really there's been a groundswell of the idea that she's the next big star three or four years and she's closely loosely wrapped up with apple music a bunch of sort of management structures and so she's the perfect insider outsider person. And you know and the report now controversy and all that goes with that speak slid gender problem over the years but you know the increasing problem over the whole past decade with how a young black musicians feel about. The granny's is really the more dramatic story. You Sean Diddy. Combs gave a speech at At a pre grammy gala the day before basically saying that as far as he was concerned. The grammys had one year to clean themselves up before are no hip hop artists in our artis. Were really going to want to have anything to do with it anymore. And increasingly those people. Just don't show up county West doesn't show up beyond sadism show up Jesse doesn't show up you know that they're speaking with their absence. And and that contrast made the billy sweep feel less like feel-good story to me. Yeah now I can. I can see that I mean I I think you can read it both ways I think also may be the week where drily become Angelino and can only see the Angelino Lens on Kobe's deaths Eh and billy I listen to tram which just like La team kicks that no I obviously as a longtime fan and with Oh flute knowledge. Noar because we've discussed this podcast I I of course was like delighted to see her open. The show and would have been you know I. I just don't really have a rooting interest. Here it would have been excited by that and by a lot of winter into her as well and and certainly for Old Town.

"Mean they have to be so skilled. It's preposterous on multiple different levels And she has some of those skills but not all of those skills and her orphan story. I won't don't need to you. Get into but suffice it to say that for whatever reason she was raised by grandparents parents. There's something bereft about her. This person is going through life. She's like on one hand like a classic kind of little tiny American Pixie. All American Pixie with Brunette hair and chestnut is and on the other hand. There's like a kind of outlandish grief to her is because of the abandonment that she suffered and there's just one moment in either the first or second episode. It's pretty early on where she's sitting and the coaches next door possibly sitting. I can't remember and the look that young girl gives that woman of just yearning for for approval in meaning and I was like I meant I'm all in and I just I think it's I think it's beautifully done. It's over long. It's it's it's there's filler. You know that doesn't lend itself to beautifully elegant Arc's but it's I just think it's a remarkable you know really good. TV All right well again like a pretty pretty a split decision here on. I thought we were all GONNA wraps. It is in unison. But now how they didn't love it but cheer it's not flicks at six parts. Long Watching Tell L. me I'm right all right moving on I write for our final segment. We're talking about the two thousand twenty grammy's with Carl Wilson slates music critic. Karl welcome back to the show. Hi everybody there are a lot of places to go here. Lisa keys hosting Whether or not music is love and I didn't know that Liz oh was a flute. Virtuoso And the fact that the night billy on Steven tell you that me adjust the producer. Just looked at each other. Like what the Hell you didn't know Liz. Oh plays the flute. In fact it's like getting her and JETHRO Tull. Sorry my bad but but Carl I want to start with you. You said that. grammys party thrown by Your Dad. Would you mean well. There were several layers to that. I mean the grammy's kind of always feel that way. There was particularly ticky literally. Weird Daddy Vibes this time around ethic particularly you know. There's there's several different angles but particularly with the sweep of Billy eyelash across all four Major categories Best new artist and album of the year and song of the year record of the year. No single artist had swept swept all four of those categories since nineteen eighty-one at which point it was Christopher Cross with sailing guy who when all of this league so so So that was a strange capper to the evening and one of the reasons that sort of daddy thinking comes up is it really felt like from the sort of you know creaky old White Academy voting base. It really felt like a sort of pat on ahead to somebody to acute kid did like really. It was almost patronizing the sense of that. They really embraced her as low as low. She just reminded them of their daughters and granddaughters. Well passing over some other. Big Phenomena of the past year of including Lizardo and including the phenomenal town. Road is a single which really seemed like the obvious shoe in for record of the year and then there was kind of vibe that kind of threw. This was the final granny's being produced by a Ken Ehrlich. WHO's been producing the show since nineteen eighty so one of the things that explains the grammy's very well is that the same person has been producing it for forty years and that sensibility really felt like it rang through the show this year and all of that within a context where the grammy's themselves are actually behind the scenes in crisis And a ten days before the awards they unceremoniously put on leave their new. CEO President Deborah Dugan who was brought in to reform the system only six months ago. And she he in return. This week filed a unequal opportunity Commission claim against them alleging a ton of things including sexual harassment systematic financial corruption and allegations of vote rigging behind the scenes. So all of that was going on And then on top of that of course Sunday was also the day the Koby Bryant died and the grammies are being held in the staple center often called the the has the Kobe built. And so there was this kind of shock effect that I think maybe happily for the grenades board of directors displaced the internal controversy. That was going on there but also kind of cast a pall in a really weird nude over the whole ceremonies in. The grammys are always weird. And this year just sort of exponentially Morrisseau. I'm curious how much Dana and see if you guys have been following. The broader. Grammy controversy is because it. It's been a huge part of what we've been covering her as I lay time. But it's also me wrangling within voting body and I got blocked perspective on how how much the general granny was aware of it before the night because tracking the story not at all. I only follow awards in fields that I have to cover and it's it's fun to come on here and talk about the grammys the next day with you guys but no. I am not somebody who watches the ceremony in real time or pays a lot of attention to what wins and also maybe because of the the hidebound nature that Carl was talking about that. You know it's all sort of run by old white guys. It doesn't usually seem to me that a grammy winner even a a major major grammy winner like Billy. This time is necessarily great marker of where Pop Music is at at that moment. Yeah I think I I'm. I'm interested in your response to the Irish when Carl just because I I think I perceive them slightly differently but just just as the amount little bit for our listeners. So you know one thing that has come under a lot of public look scrutiny. In the last five years is the makeup.

"g. mat" Discussed on Slate's Culture Gabfest

"One of the best news. I think we've talked about in the last five years and you know criminally under under activated. Now that I'm a professional accolade played journalists and and and I don't know she's trip she's terrific but the the the that that relationship is the performance is a little bit thin writing well and something else about that relationship without getting into spoilers about it but he encounters this Jewish girl. He doesn't seem to have ever met a Jew before and then they have this ongoing kind of somewhat playful somewhat antagonistic. Back and forth about what a Jew is and she makes up these lies and tells him that Jews can read each other's minds and hang from the ceiling and she's essentially embroidering and all the fantasies that she knows the Nazi party is already planted in his mind. But just that seems so decontextualize. Woah to me and I'm sure that some other reviews made note of this that you know if this was really taking place in a Germantown in Nineteen forty-five obviously Jews and Germans would have had intermingled lives for decades before handwrite. So the idea that a Jew is this kind of crazy fantasy in his mind that he has to ask someone what they are just seems completely clearly lifted out of any kind of historical context to me and so I agree this is. This is not a matter of floundering around being offended by this movie. I I'm not at all offended by the idea of taking this material making it into a comedy even abroad. Crazy satirical comedy that has Hitler dancing around in your bedroom but to do that in a way that it just wrenches out of context. So that if you were a kid ten year old kid watching the saying gee what was World War Two. What were the Nazis? I don't know what they were. I don't think you'd come out of it saying saying Hitler was a with somebody who lived in people's bedrooms you'd get that that was a fantasy but the idea that Jews and Germans were complete strangers to each other and that you know these two children had to head to learn learn what the culture was in that way is just a historical and a little bit disturbing. I don't disagree but I WANNA push back a little bit because this is a very specific kind of movie and it really announces itself with the Hitler character and performance. Yes it doesn't serve that purpose. If a child who knew very little about the Holocaust or Nazi Germany were to watch it they would walk away. You know misinformed might be a strong word. They wouldn't walkaway informed us not that kind of movie. It's not like an you know it's not a Spielberg. It's not Schindler's list. It's not this like Po. Faced lesson about moral heroism. which is a form of sentimentality in and of itself that I find vastly more revolting than what's on display your I just don't I don't think it has to be that movie I think it's so upfront about its intentions You know not to be dot kind of film that I I. I just don't see that as a problem in a way I mean one thing I will say Julia and then we can wrap it. Is maybe one reason you know this comical fantasy projection of Adolf Hitler was added to the film. Is that the Thomas Mackenzie character is actually playing a very theft game of tennis with this young Nazi and and by the way like the moving part of the movie is is she says to him. You're not a Nazi like he is doing everything he can. To be a good little Nazi he desperately wants to be a good Nazi. And she's the one who says to him. That's that's not who you are right like that is is not all the way inside of you. And it's one of those astonishing moments where that only becomes true about that person because that other persons sees it and it's building being on that person seeing that that is true or maybe even saying it and not believing it but making it true because they said it to me is kind of beautifully done and underwritten purposely. Okay so that they had to add this compensatory clown figure to the movie because I thought that was quite deft he keeps firing these absurdities Atra Atarot stereotypical absurdities atr and the playfulness and debt deafness. And kind of you know. She doesn't crack sweat like firing them back and putting them back on on him. which is so much more powerful than like indignation or how good you ever have been led to believe? I mean there's a layer of knowingness and self protective irony to that character that I found in its own way in the context of that universe very believable and very moving. Can I ask you one question before we wrap. We haven't talked about Scarlett Johansson's performance and she is Oscar nominated. She has to Oscar nominations this year. Supporting actress for this and Best Actress for marriage story and I was somewhat surprised watching this movie. To think that that a plurality or whatever it is of Academy voters thought this performance was a sort of significant enough in the movie and be an outstanding enough performance to be nominated for an Oscar and that's no discard Joe. I think she fits in with the strange world of this movie and manages to speak with somewhat arch dialogue convincingly but I I don't quite get what the big deal is do you have thoughts on that and I've already spoken sweaters. which are quite beautiful costume design? She looks incredible and I. I love her Alpine Johnny Look. I mean there's one scene where it you know.
