"I love a lot of musicals, but it was interesting. I was getting into Tom Waits and Bob Dylan when I was going to school and their former singing and and I really really have a major I was on some doing some rant with my friend the other day ripping on this very thing, but it's like how wage Want the voices to be so pretty on Broadway and they actually weren't all pretty like they weren't like what's her name? Who's in Sunday in the park with George George Martin The Jerk Bernadette Peters Bernadette Peters. Yo No One listened God. No one must have all me thought we were going to be talking about Bernadette Peters, but we're we're in the forest. But her voice is not traditionally pretty like it is not like there is jarring aspects to her voice and in and I feel like off the thing with Bob Dylan the thing with Tom Waits, like I love that. It's like singing should not be prohibitive if you can hit the note. And it's like how the human voice isn't meant to sound exactly the same like it's the greatest instrument in all of the world. And then you go to school for people to behave like I get it for Opera like you have to learn how to sing opera but for Theatre music your voice should be able to do whatever it calls for and I think a lot of times nowadays people singing very much similar Styles and I love I'm so drawn to the people that have weird voices that like Maria bamford's a great example, obviously like her voice is like a great but she she can make it to ya and she can make it do somersaults kind of fun. Yeah. It's fun to listen to her. So that's cool. I just put that back up to the house women sing Waits on my Christmas list. There you go. You'll be happy to know I'm I'm someone needs to I'm very I'm excited for you. I think I think yeah, that'll be good. He yeah, like that's just a fun. It's cool that the person exists that like sings in weird ways. Like I'm glad there's eighty people that aren't doing it all over the radio. It's just he's like the same like I'm glad there's this one weird person out there doing his thing. That doesn't give a fuck like yeah these yeah and and and it and it's and it's he's doing it. I mean, do you feel like he's doing it for himself and if you like it you like it and he like it's not that he's not reaching toward the audience. It's just he's reaching for a very specific audience who might enjoy what he wants to genuinely do. Yes. Yeah, and I I think that's very inspiring cuz I think it's like it was probably scary thought I would imagine like when he first was like I'm going to change my entire sound like I'm always amazed at those people that are like throw it all away and are like, all right. Let's see who comes home. On this journey with me and then you know, it may not be as many people but they're like True Believers in what you're doing and like I love it, you know and and if you you know and quite honestly, I mean this is a perfect example is stand up and and covid-19 distinct says that if you get to do what you love to do, you've already want yeah, you know, it's it's so I see that life his first album that Closing Time album came out in seventy-three and that he put out an album every year until 1978 and then and then 1980 was heart-attack and Vine a 1983 was swordfishtrombones. Yeah, and then they became every two years and then five years between Frank's wild years back bone machine bone machine is the scariest thing you ever hear bone machines. We really yeah.

"My talking head. After this, we'll be right back. Welcome back. You talk and talk talking heads mytalk and head. Adamant. I are here with the legendary. Some we you hear people. Called the Fifth Beatle. The. You're like the third beetle, which is incredible. Yes that's right. How many Fifth Beatles were there was Pete Best. There was Brian Epstein there was. Who Played a keyboard billy, Preston Billy. Preston. So many fifth. Beatles. But we're talking to one of the original four. Beatles here George Martin? Yes. Is George George Martin certainly considered was there anyone else you considered to be a fourth beetle or a fifth beatle now? I think I think We'll maybe Joe Johns wife but Oh. Yeah. You're. Really break up your band. Well I do well I. Think John became. Pretty. Infatuated and certainly distracted. Yeah. Boy Always GonNa ban so good it's almost worth it right. Sure about that but. I mean, after all I'M NOT GONNA I'M JOE NOT. Sure. But it allowed me to go out and play with Clapton and Delaney and you know that was really really food at. All those great. I mean those you know all those things and you know as well as gave me time to get more involved in my meditation and Hari Krishna Movement and. Just. Very important. What you know. You know the the John and George. John Paul was his name everyone everyone else had become sort of. You know when these kind of saw what they thought was Maharishi behaving badly they had just. Throw. Their. Hands the whole thing. But I still saw some value and they never totally got it anyway. No. You, had to have a quieter sold to be able to do. So we're talking of course about. Jerry's whole career with talking heads and beforehand and everything but the focus of this episode is stop making sense which When we asked you which album you'd like to cover. We heard stop making sense is is Pretty much what you want to talk about why is that? Partially because you just unfair of music, I think chosen that first but. I think that start making sense for many people. Is was. Sometimes their introduction talking heads it was mine mine mine as well. The people who were maybe a little younger or just had not. Penetrated and because it was a film. We actually succeeded in doing something that I was really trying wanted us to do with this film which was. Not replace but be an alternative to the rocky horror. Picture show. I wanted to be the mood of the film that. A theater could play every Saturday night. And people could come. and. So one of the things was so essential was not to have any talking in it. I have a jussie music. I heard you talking yeah. I heard you talking about that on the the DVD of stop making sense. But you didn't mention like which films did that a lot is that. which previous rock documentaries had a lot of talking over him that you can remember? Well, the one that really drove me crazy was the film about Jimi Hendrix where they would go into A. You know some of the other songs recorded at Monterey pop that's not featured in Monterey pop, which, of course, only wild thing. and. Then, they would cut back to people who had known Jimmy in high school. And I'm going. who gives a shit scare slightly interesting but like you just kind of short jumped as he was going to the best part of the Sola here's a here's a guy doing something. No one else in the world can do and let's talk to one of his buds. And and you see it in all this all of the documentary films that. They never let the songs. Play all the way through. Iowa I always feel that way about biographies of of people as well. Like We're usually reading a biography of someone because they've done extraordinary things Brian. When they start off with five chapters about their dumb life growing up time like who can. Get to the talking about when you were like doing these incredible things that I, the reason I bought it. So so you guys just wanted to do a movie that was just pure music that house right and. We we had a very visual show. And So we wanted to really just capture what we were doing. Jonathan thought that was a great idea this giant Danny, the Lane Jonathan. Yes and he Brought in a fabulous director of photography Jordan Krona. Worth. And he just enhanced what was already going on on stage every night. So this was the speaking in tongues tour that well, we had already done a tour for speaking in tongues. So this was a second tour designed with this. Kind of we ideas that we'd explored on the remain in light, and then particularly in the speaking in tongues tour. Of starting with a strip down psycho killer and people joining the joining the band in the remain in light tour, we did a few songs as a four piece and then people care about four we didn't, but we took it. One step further with David. Doing the first song and then Tina joining him and then Chris than me. So anyway, it was a concern. Anyway, it was a conceptual piece and. We just thought it. would be an amazing tour and it turned out to be just an amazing tour and so Jonathan saw it and he goes I wanNA film this and so we really did it. At the end of the American tour, we only did two more shows after that. And a festival in new? Zealand. Festival in Australia. Wow. So that was that was right at the end. That's crazy. Yes. So we wait was four nights at the pantages theater in Hollywood by the way where I saw Shrek the musical. I see and I saw the producers. Nice I always am I was so surprised to. It wasn't until recently that I. Found that the pantages I always figured it was this enormous place not like appendages tiny but. I've been there many times. It doesn't it in the movie it feels like. A Real I just always pictured at a giant arena or huge huge place, and it's it's actually a probably a great place for for filming. Control it. The sound was good as well, and we could control it add. We filmed it over four nights. The first night was a rehearsal where people were wandering around. You Know Candle. But like kind of checking out camera angles, you know how director to go with looking through a lands and loop. Yeah and then they set up a track because it was filmed in thirty five millimeter of for like a pan of cameras to roll down and they had to take the seats out. So one night they. Stage left one night they did the center one night they did stage right and. So, when we? Went into the editing process, the first thing was to do was to pick which performance was the best performance. Came they most of them were the final night. and. By there are a couple of times where we edited or chose another one. We did do a few repairs when there was terrible leakage on apart or something like that. So some of the vocals were redone where there was you didn't have enough definition. was there ever? An issue with the timing being different between night tonight or where you all in a click track or We were not on a click track Chris listen to click to start the song actually go back and watch it. You'll see with great detail you'll start to go like other things going on Thursday. You'll know it's a shot from another night. Would you charge full price for the shows even though it was it was a shorter show than you normally did I I had heard that you cut out songs in order to sort of make it a little more movie length, and then you have all these special lights and stuff like that or were was this your normal L. A. Tour Stop? We already played in La. This was very much. This is gonNA. Be a filming. You have to sign something that you're coming in here. I can recall whether we charge our weather. We used some sort of. Primitive fan club. We ever really had a fan much. We're tickets back then weren't they like eighteen dollars. They were they were. Extremely reasonable deal I was watching the movie last night and so much of it is. And I had forgotten this. So so many times the camera is focused on the crew bringing on. In the middle of a song, which which is, just you know the opposite of what you would think you would do in Iraq movie you would disguise all that stuff and yet they're the first four or five songs you're just. Taking a break during these incredible musical performance to watch essentially guys pushing something out on stage, which is it actually draws you even further in, but it's the opposite of what you think would happen when you when I saw the where you ever saying like Jonathan, why are you focusing on this so much? No because that was part and parcel of the show. The idea that nothing was really hidden. It was very visible. I think also one of the reasons that stomaching centers films had such lasting power is that it?.

"Kind of see it a little different way. Re The word reactionary. itself is really loaded term and you know if we think of the the sort of. What it was like to live in the late nineteenth century which I actually think we as early twenty first century people can have a lot of sympathy for I see a lot of similarities in the sort of the cultural anxieties of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century here a hundred years later, and so what I think happens at any given moment in historical time line is that stuff occurs you know new ideas come up new books are written new ideas. You know Kinda new patterns of community come to the fore people who haven't previously had voice be express their voices and. All of that causes reactions among all of every group of human beings. And and so now when I would have said one time Oh. Yeah. The fundamentalists or reactionary against liberal culture and that they were just trying to protect themselves against these changes I think that probably the fairer thing to for me. Fair way for me to think about it at least is that. Human beings react to change. And Liberal of the people who became Protestant. Liberals were reacting to change as well. So. They were reacting by saying. You. Know these are these ideas are worth listening to maybe there's something here that we can learn from. Maybe we haven't always understood the what. Jesus. Intended in terms of living in. Adjust universe, and so they were reacting their adaptation was a reaction to those those things and I think fundamentalists were doing the same thing as well. You know as they were also reacted and and they adopted and so so what I what I think is the the false narrative is that either one of these two sides emerged from the nineteenth century into the first years the twenty twentieth century maintaining. A kind of protestantism that had been practiced say fifty or seventy years before. Both groups Reacted to social change intellectual change. And I think also internal pressures within their own traditional ill edition. and they formed two different pathways. Really. Of. Adapting. To those changes. As and so I would rather think of that. Is Adaptation and and. Transformation rather than just being quote unquote reactionary because of the nature of the word the action, very. Loaded Connotation for sure. Yeah. It does this conversation I. Think you know one thinks it's important. Do is to try to. Win. Any good historian is always trying to do is put herself in him or himself you know back into the narrative and A. How how would I feel? How did these people? How do these people see their moment and so so I think that you know very few people were. Were standing there. You know kind of imagining themselves. In a way that was negative they saw themselves as the heroes of their own stories and one group. The more modernist and liberal types were heroes in their own story. They believe that they were protecting your saving Christianity by. Adopting these. New, ideas and fundamentalists had the exact opposite approach. Yeah and I I am certainly sort of showing my cards a little bit as being someone that mood from more conservative. Faith of origin to one that is more open, more liberal for lack of a better word. So. I appreciate the the way in which you responded to that question even the way in which I which I worded it. So thank you for exploring that with me. Right makes a difference I think into how we read the stories. You know because I mean I can I can look back in the history fundamentalism WANNA tear my hair out because I journey through. Evangelical ISM as a personal. Experience of personal narrative. Mostly in the nineteen seventies, eighties and eighties for about fifteen seventeen years of my life. And and so. You know coming out on the other side I had very strong reaction against it and at the and that was very problematic for me because I had considered my south evangelical, all the way through my undergraduate, my seminary education, and even into my PhD when I was studying studying with Marsden as so my personal identity was wrapped up in the historical narrative that I was studying and while I was working with this historical narrative I always wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt because I wanted my tribe to look good. Which is true for a lot of the people who are. Well known historians in this field you know Mark Noll does not want a marginal who taught at Wheaton for years and then Notre Dame. You, know he he doesn't want. To look bad those are his people you know George, George. Martin. Did Not want jobs look bad those his people in and and so. What you try to do historian and I'm so grateful that I studied with these these types. Of of thinkers, it was almost all men because there were very few women in the field back. Then there was only one woman a real note, a woman named eat bloom Hoffer who studied history of Kinda cost the whistle. And so Most these people studied with you know they they were in a real on real mission to. Understand. What had been good about their own tribes. And that meant that they approached. Fundamentalism far more sympathetically than any other. Of. Scholars since. The argument started one hundred hundred years ago. So. So I really I wear that I..

the live on at the now defunct Los Angeles Comic Book Shop Meltdown What Answers he felt his story should and should not answer quote there are certain questions about the show that I'm very Donald Bhai like what is the island or what do the numbers mean we're GonNa be explaining a little more about the numbers may be significantly more about the numbers but what do you mean by what the numbers mean what is a potential answer to that question I feel like you have to be very careful about entering into midday chlorine territory I grew up on Star Wars I've seen the star wars movies thousands of times I can recite them chapter and verse and never once did anyone ever say to me or did it occur to me to say what is the force exactly this essentially is the philosophical distinction between two taxonomy of science fiction hard Scifi and sought Saifi and it's through this lens that we're going to try to examine McLaren's but I what are they just as quite Gone Jin explained to young and can skywalker midday chlorine are sentient microscopic life forms which reside inside the of all living things in a symbiotic relationship with their host organism medical are connected to the energy field which binds all things together commonly known as force when made it coins are present in significant enough numbers they allow their host to perceive and interact with and harness the force this means that any host in animals as long as they're count is high enough Ken be at least according to previous Canon for sensitive for instance we have the Foreign Skar a native to the forest ended of Mercker was a Jaguar like Nocturnal Predator that use the force to locate its prey it found four sensitive beings jet is included hard to resist list and very tasty divorces prime quiry the Mary was like a furry tree dwelling Iguana also for sensitive the e Saleh Mary evolved a novel defense against their hunters the ability to surround themselves with an area within which the force could not be used the more e Saleh Mari in area the larger the Anti Force bubble and this made the forest of Merck are popular hideout for smugglers pirates now other lactic scum looking to evade Jeddah entangled let's and it can count as we heard according to the blood tests run by Obi one is more than twenty thousand McLaren's per cell which we again quick learn is the highest ever record surpassing even that of Master Yoda leading quite gone to believe that is dry savior destined to bring balance to the force he's all the blood tests immediately we deserve the right to know what they are all that said there's actually no one to one relationship between the amount of chlorine wants bloodstream at least above a certain level that would make one for sensitive and the strength of that person's force abilities consider ob one more than a match for Anikin when the two duked it out on the volcanic planet and Mustafa in revenge the Seth pappy highground though the he had highground this shrew but before that even palpable exerted significant control over his apprentice Anikin despite any this high medical Orient Count Anna darth became if anything more powerful than ever despite being violently dismembered because he did not have the high ground in that aforementioned dual thus having less body parts and therefore clearly less medical reasons so medications are an explanation for force sensitivity works but considering what we just talked about how much does that explanation actually matter and why's an explanation necessary Now here's where the question of hard Scifi for Soft Sifi comes in simply put hard science fiction described stories which have a basis in real science and real math oft sci-fi on the other hand is often more philosophical tending to lean on broader sociological anthropological and political themes examples. hard sci fi would be she's you can lose three body problem trilogy Andy Weir's the Martian shouts to the potatoes on Mars and Ted Chiang's various stories excavation by it now it's excellent soft sci fi stories include Orson Scott Card's enders Game Frank Herbert's Dune and of course the original star wars trilogy we can think of glory and then as a hard science fiction element in a film series characterized by pointed lack of such details in fairness though if you say that explanations in this medium were luxuries getting into how gravity works on the death star by the atmosphere and a star cruisers hangar bay doesn't shoot out into space and how blasters were now it's possible to travel at faster than light speeds of just bogged down the pacing stuff simply worked the original trilogy depicted the force as essentially magic and when it's ascribed it's a near Miss stickle religious terms in episode four one tells

"george george martin" Discussed on The Topic of Choice Podcast
"I think there's a lot of I think it's going to be more subtle in the books than it was clearly than it wasn't a TV show. But she's had some moments of descent into madness. First of all, you know, the Miri mas- dul is. Is the name of a she was in the TV show? I believe, well, where she where after called Rogo dies. She tells her, you're going to be barren you're never gonna have any more kids. Okay. And then there's also Pyatt pre who's this high priests who basically gives us some fortunes and is putting some, some source react, there that in the way she responds to you. Kinda see you kind of see, hints of what she may end up becoming and she clearly has the monster in there. It's just a matter if she can contain it. I think that, that's a lot of what the ours are trying to deal with their own inner demons, the entire time. And you know Ray goal is Reagan is, you know, that, that's part of his thing is he's, he's found Chee in his in his in his in being a target. He's the poet, king essentially to be. And then he dies now this is the one that gets dies by cow drug targeting. Yeah. He's Brigham second. He. Yeah. He, he gets killed by king, Robert, and that's that Robert's rebellion against his family. And Reagan was probably going to be one of the best kings of all time, and as we know now major spoiler alert. He's the father of John snow. And so that's, that's kind of where you get the he was the true king, he was supposed to be the true king, and his son is every bit. The true King, John is the pit ame- of who you'd want a ruler a person who doesn't wanna be a ruler. So catch me up quickly. Who Jamie Lancaster is the king slayer. What king did he kill who mad king? Heiress is the king. So that would be radars. Father other. Yes. So he was the king at the time when, when Robert's rebellion started so Roberts million started, because you get a piece of this in the show, is that brand Brandon stark, and his father went from winner fell who Brandon start being the older brother of Edward Ned went south because they had some grievances with the crown. And so they went south to go talk to the to mad ks about their grievances and instead of listening to the very reasonable grievances. He instead burn them alive in their armor, by hoisting them up, in, in one of those birdcage is kind of thing and literally burning them alive in it, and so they roasted well, actually, the father choked himself to death trying to get to his son who was roasting alive in the armor. It's one of the most tragic things you have read. But basically that starts Robert's rebellion. Because MAG heiress tells. John heiress. Aaron he tells John Aaron who is tutoring. Ed stark and Robert Baratheon time says give me those children. Give me them because they are children of, of rebel rebellion. Right. And so I want to kill them and John Aaron says, no chance zero chance that's going to happen. You're not going to exterminate to our most powerful families so that starts the John Aaron king, Robert breath, Ian and Edward start start Robert's rebellion. And it's an enormous war that lasts, you know, somewhere around seven to ten years, and, and that's where you see all these events from like the, like the battle to try. And when regards killed to you got to see, you know, the, the battle up at the tower joy, where John is born. You You know. know that all part of it, it's all part of Robert's rebellion. Okay so good history lesson there. Yeah. Yeah. So, so let me ask you this. Season. Eight favorite character throughout season. I'm sorry. See, but season one through season, eight who'd you say one of your favorite character builds are I, I don't know there's a lot that I like so it's really difficult to narrow it down. I think that in terms of accuracy, we talked about the hound earlier and grammar and show. I think the hound is one of those spot on characters ever ROY McCann the actor for that he kills it. He must have read the books. It's too accurate to not have read the book, Sander is so close torn giant Spain is another one that is really close to the character in the books that is exactly how is so I like both of those characters lot, I thought bear dairy and was kind of a wish he'd had better, you know, death and outgoing I love Eric dairy, and he's one of my favorite characters. He's the one that saves aria in the win about a winner fell, he gets stabbed much time and get up down. You know, there's a lot of characters in there that I like that, probably aren't mostly my favorite characters are not main characters. Yeah. Supporting characters. Yes. Yeah. I would say that my Tyrian. Oh man. Yeah. Not and killed it. I think he got a couple of Emmys. He deserves them. Yeah. George said when he wrote the books, he was thinking Peter in that role and then Peter damage later played the role, which is just amazing dream come true for him. And then he played it just to a point to a degree that you just. Yeah. User of the you deserve every EMMY they ever made. It's just so good. It's so perfect to the character. And you feel for me empathize it for him and Georgia Martin has always said, I wrote, I wrote teary Lancaster as me he is George Martin personified into character in the way he wants to see him so. Okay. And so, you know, there's a little bit of sarcasm, but a wit a lot of drinking cetera et cetera. I think that's kind of how George sees himself. He's that's kind of like the early late. Twenties early thirties version of Georgia Martin, I heard that there is a petition going around to have them re-shoot season eight if ever there was a time to do it. This might be it. I when I hear that I'm just thinking millions of dollars hundred million dollars on this last days and maybe three hundred for the last three they won't do it, okay chance. No chan-. No, there's no chance of that. But if there was going to be a show to reshoot it is clearly, this one, and I wish they would wait until George, you think about the money if George finished all the books, and then they went back and I wouldn't even care if they got a new cast, just reshoot from season five on. Right. Or I mean, well, I guess five six seven eight but, but to that, even if they did that, that would just discredit the producers, I think of, of saying you guys, you know, you blew it. It's almost like asking George Lucas. Hey, can we have Jj Abrams go back and do one two and three? Good. He he absolutely should to certain degree. I don't care how. Credited? They get gave up on the show to go direct stalwarts as far as I can tell. Well, that kind of worries me. I mean I don't know if. I like let me say this. I like Dan Weiss a lot. He wrote the original manuscript for halo, which was supposed to be made into the movie, and then got cancelled. And everybody says that, that manuscript was really good. You know the way I'm a fan of Spartan one one seven and it would have been an incredible journey. I think with him on it. David binney off, as I've told you I think, before, is the guy that brought us x men, origins wolverine. Yeah. He's the guy who brought us that version of deadpool. The man has no, like no credibility with me whatsoever. I read his only written book, which is called like city of thieves or something like that. It's terrible. It's just terrible. So you got to wonder how does a guy like that get the rains, I don't know something this epic in this, this lard, I don't know. I think they just went in pitched it. I think they said, we can write this. We're, we're Hollywood writers, and we can pitch, also Amanda Peet is, is they've been off wife, okay? She's easily more popular than him and more famous than sure. So me she may have had some influence on that. I'm surprised. They didn't put her in the show. Yeah. Now that you didn't even know that sickly had her as on standby. She's one of the best actresses I know of and she didn't get a role. So get it. So if I if I compare this again, I'm going back to an epic book series Tolkien, okay? Made into film, Peter Jackson, right? This is this is an individual infinitely respect to the similar to you. George R Martin's history in these books who who live? Literally new them inside. Now going back to the Soma really and understanding history of the, of the deep dive, and this is a guy who, who would say, I can take this and you can trust me with it. Yeah. Right. So I love it down appropriately. He got rid of I mean I was discouraged. I've said brought this up so many times now. But he got rid of Tom ado. I love Tom Bomba dill. He's a very, very minor character. But I think it important one in terms of the progression of the hobbits, and in terms of them accepting the role in what they're supposed to do. And, you know, cuts had to be made sat big vices had two more aid, and he made in my opinion all the appropriate ones. Yeah. He'd no, no. He he translated those books to film beautifully, and anyone an Oscar for best picture, return to the king. Yeah. Deserved it, it was amazing. So, so here's my question, which which kind of circles this common around. Were the two producers of game of thrones as vested in the books and the history as Jackson was to token or you to George Martin are these two individuals said, look, you can trust us with these, we not to do it or did they mess up because they thought they could continue on with the writing after they ran out of books. I. Have reluctant to say this a little bit. But I, I don't think so. I think that they I think they all Goldman when they when they had it they realized they had a gold mine. I don't I don't know that they've been off even read the books. I really don't. I assume he has just because he has to has probably, but I don't know how much attention he really paid. I think he kinda just skim read. I believe in wise, probably read the entire thing and probably got into some theories, and they got into some hashing out some fan theories. I mean they had to give George George Martin infant infamously said that he gave them the job when he he had him explain who is John's parents at a dinner table meeting with them, and they explained it. They got it. But then again, they could have gotten on any message board forum, right? Only internet and discovered that in twenty minutes that that's too easy of the question is, it's just too easy. Like tell me who your favorite minor character is and explain why. And give me a house that nobody knows about. And what's important, and that's the question that would have been. Right. I would ask the appropriate to say are you, are you trustworthy to take these books as the sewer Kranich men and translate it? That's right. That's just work tough questions like that. As far as I can tell. And so, I just think they realized that they had a gold mine, and then, you know, and that was it. They just said, oh, my gosh. People don't realize what this is and we've got a jump on it right now. What if we get George on the phone, and we say, hey, will make this and we option HBO..
"george george martin" Discussed on Game of Stools
"And. That and like gray warm, the initial charge where everyone just got smoked. And then somehow they all comes out of the back. Yeah. Definitely not dead. What are the sorry? And what do they you know, those they're not gonna win? What are we doing? We wrapped up there. You know? Warmer supposed to be this like unsullied warrior who will go in fear. Right. And it's like I'll put myself in front of certain death of I have to and he did that. And he shoulda died Anatara. She made it to the top. She got knighted. There's nothing else to do. She should be gone, but the into the fucking army of the debt and came back aim back out on his horse. What are we doing here? But now the flip side is by maintaining by keeping everyone in way that I needed to see him die in arms. But now that every major character still there the throne is widely Haas is like. Lebron leaves the east like anybody can come out of the east now, it's wide open. So I guess we're just back to like who do we think or or do you think there's a whole like is the iron throne really not even gonna matter in the end because so much has gone down. I think it will. I think like I think what the predictability that they've had. It's probably gonna still my biggest fear in the world is like someone wins the iron throne, and it's like a cut out of Sam writing down the story, and then like all Genry build in the river, lands Dany and John have the throne. West of it some type of like one or two characters die. But the problem is that they saved so many minor characters that they can still kill off a few of them and people will be like, oh, we got some deaths, but like not the main character that'd be lords of rings era brings where you still have kinda survive. I think there should be like one person left like game of thrones is really going to do it the way it started out going to kill everybody. I would like more this early part of the season. I wanted it. I was worried about like me being happy with who wins. Right. Like, I I wanted my guys or girls to win. Now. I just want something that makes sense and something that's aligned with the first four or five seasons this show. I don't care who it is anymore as long as it's pretty cutthroat. Pretty mean, pretty game of thrones ish. I don't want. That shit. Right. Yeah. Honor never wins and Gatemouth route. Right. So it working real doesn't win and realize. That's why we was good. So I wonder I mean, I still think that there's no coincidence that with Georgia are not at the helm things are looking pretty sloppy. Now, I will say I think sir sees with the saps was post books that was with the TV writers. They have had their moments they have delivered. But I think overall when you look back Marjorie still alive in the book. She's my favorite character. I was fucking avoided kill someone. All of them, and she shouldn't have him. She she put it together at the last second. Well, that's also I mean, we were discussing how that that George George. Martin's by going to re like right this story totally differently which is fucking so annoying. Read it I mean. Yeah. Gonna have to go read the. To read all real. And then I'll do a presentation apprentice that ending is going to be so much better than whatever. DB Weysan Benny off. Come. I'll do that for you guys. I'll do that. So as you like like it sounds. I mean, everybody everybody says shut up about alley talk. And everybody says you're hating it too much. And then, but then like as time has gone on even the biggest fans, even the most die-hard book readers, and even all the TV critics are all kinds of starting to come around on the idea is that was an or in a bigger picture of where we're kinda going. It's not just one episode. Yeah. Do you feel like in general probably trending in the wrong way for you? I don't have that feeling at all because it's game of thrones. And like, you don't know what's going to happen. You are arrogant. If you assume that you know, that this episode didn't give you everything you were supposed to because when we look back. You don't know that it won't like I at the end of the season at the final episode. If it's just like that fucking sucked. I will tell you that it sucked. But until then I'm jury slot on it basket case to if that happens best-case regardless I I'm letting myself disappointed periodically your your wedding. Trust. I have but okay. But don't tell somebody then losing trust at all at any. Have you been like? Now because I'm just enjoying what they're giving you. Feeling that there's a difference between old George Martin books have a game of thrones early. He's giving thrones and much to know or the story's going like, I'm just not picky. Like that. Like, I've I'm not like that with movies either. Like, I'm not like criti- with movies. I'm like that was enjoyable to watch. I've never really not liked movie like up. Okay. I agree with that. Because I'm the same way. But that's because I just walk into a movie I sit down two hours later, it's over when I've been watching so much time into this. But. Ever feel vibe of like, I think this would have been better had they done this. 'cause I mean, I didn't write it like could I have come up with something better. Like, I think I could. But then probably not, you know, there's a difference between thinking I'm not arguing. Great. Dane, you hope some things happen. But if you leave and it doesn't happen. Don't you walk away being like I wish? Yeah. Which that was different right? Yeah. But then you still have the trust in like the universe or whatever the hope that eventually it's going to work out and be good like. I know no one has this feeling due. I also think that there's something to like I'm special if three episodes from now, they do some crazy shit that looking back. This is all awesome. Great. But that doesn't mean that when I watched the battle of win you didn't enjoy what the fuck is going on here. And that's to the next people take it to the next level. Telling me to watch the prequel. If someone said to me in person, I will fight you watch like, well, dude, they're not gonna tell you because of the frequent. So you telling me they hit a seventy fucking episode promo for another series as gonna happen for five years. I think they'll tell us. I think they'll give us something. And then you just have to say, you know, what that's the end if they don't what would you say that very upset. Okay. The what? What will it take very diehard thrones person to if they're if they're playing happy families in the end, I'm going to say that's not what this is supposed to be ruin this series real because I think I did this best show ever status. And now it's coming down for me. It's kind of like Grey's anatomy, really sucks now. But it doesn't make the first couple seasons. Not great because they were really great. You know, definitely never going to criticize what happened in those seasons. But I will say like the way this wrapped up lessons the whole picture for me. You're allowed to feel like that. All silly. 'cause I know, but I think I'm in the small minority of people who are just like, whatever give me whatever you want. That's true. I want a minority of majority. There's a lot of people who are there's a lot of people who want to want to. I don't know expected too much not too much like wanted it to be something that like at the end of the day. It's not like, it's a TV show. They can only do one story. You know, they can only pick one and somebody say to me like they're like what you just mad that that this TV show. Didn't do what you wanted to do. Yeah. I mean, that's what stories are book, and you want certain things to happen that doesn't that? I don't like it. I I you have expectations for things to occur in TV show. And if they don't and the story is different than and lesser than in your mind. Yeah. Some of my favorite books are books that I read and I'm like this fucking what the fuck are you doing? I hate. This is stupid. And then I'll go back and read it seventeen more times. Like, I've just I don't know. I trust the story. Read read a book. I don't like if I don't all read it if I don't like the way like something happened. But I still think the storytelling was really good. And I enjoyed it. Like, if I'm thinking like, this is just the way the story is this is not the story that I wrote I my own story. I respect that. I guess, but that is the craziest thing thought did you sit there and read a story that you don't like, but respect that someone else thinks it's good. No. This is the story. Like, I'm invested in the characters. I just don't like the way it ended or something. I'll be like still gonna fucking read this book. I think in. I I don't even know how to awesome for you. I wish I was that way. If I could just if things could unfold that I don't like, but I could just say, you know, what I guess I do kinda like it. I don't know. It's crazy. I will say I think the other side of that is where a lot of people like myself who love both game of thrones in vendors more than almost anything else in the world in terms entertainment and game. I think nailed the final the final absolute tens across the board. And then compare that some people are gonna compare the thrones. And I don't I honestly don't know thrones could have done it. 'cause I don't like you, basically just match it. If it's perfect or as perfect as you can get it's almost unfair in that regard. But I do I I'm probably maybe a little more optimistic to most. I believe in that the guys here. We'll get it. Right. Just because I think Georgia's like, please don't fuck this up for. That's that's what I wanna know. I wish I would love to be a fly on the wall of like the writing room and the whole production process because I have faith Georgia George Martin. I don't think faith anymore in Weiss and Benny off. So if those guys are running the show, I don't have that faith. I think they're going to I think they're actually proving that they tend to fuck it up. I think to. Saying the Clem earlier, I think obviously the magic and all that shit was like a huge part of the books, and they obviously had to bring it into the show because they were going off the books now that they're not going off the books. I think the fact that there was basically, no deaths and the two major deaths were Barrick and Mela, Sandra. Who are like all Giora that was like and the and yet. No. But I'm saying like Baruch Mel Sandra in the night king. We're like the dominant magic people. So the fact that they got rid of all of them interested as kind of like them being like, all right? Like, we like we're done with the match just to talk area, basically. I should've done that a lot earlier like I don't think we should have at the end of season went really heavy on the magic. And we got rid of it like that. Basically when push came to shove is weird. They took too long of a detour. But then they also got rid of it too fast. So it's like they they were slowdown and then hurry up and now the, yeah, we're left with with what I think people love most about game of thrones. But if like does this even. I feel you could probably relate this Yun clan. That I feel like now this is kind of like a team that you've rooted for your entire life going into the playoffs knowing that they're probably gonna lose. But you're still like along. All right. We're going in the playoffs like we can still fucking win. This whole thing. Like, they still have episode five is Miguel whatever's opponent on real like gonna be run that they can set it up with like, I think they're definitely going to set it up with a classic game of thrones. Unexpected death at the end of nex ups owed like I have so many characters at any of them could you both? And if they're gonna be some crazy shit cliffhanger. And then episode five could be epic. And then six is wrapping up. There's still hope but like my my concern is going higher and higher. Yeah. I've seen them win the championship. You know? Like when sir lit that whole thing up that was a fucking title when negative chopped up. That was our first title. It was fuck up and hurt us. But it was it was unbelievable. And we're kind of going through the same thing. That's a good point, Hank. I wonder I mean, I said that. My blog today that like sports and game of thrones game of thrones sports to me almost like I invested them. Like I invested a team. And and the people who are still satisfied are think I compare it to Mets fans like there are Mets fans who were like, well, I'm still a fan, and let's just go out there and keep rooting for them. Whereas I if they like when they fell short in two thousand fifteen it, absolutely devastated me. So there's two different types of sports fans in a way, I wonder if you're not a sports fan at all. And I wonder if that like is there anything here's my questions or anything else in your life. Is there anything in your life that you think compares to the way we treat sports? No. Okay. Right. So that might be the difference. Like, I think speaking for myself here. But I also think a lot of of thrones fans get so invested that that's where our disappointments coming from. Whereas it seems like everything in your life. Is you don't you don't dive in as much to get your hopes up as much to them be let down as much don't have expectations. I think that's really the difference. I think that if you're still cool everything it's a matter of like expectations, and I set standards that are probably too high or like, not reasonable probably. I'm still hopeful. Yeah. I said that like we're down three oh in the finals right now like and bundy's comeback, and they and we win does. That makes one side comment like Sawyer in the fucking square. Like that would that would go like away aria mentioned John seeing John rag that. Yes, even if they don't address it fully, even if there's like a side comment like that would go a long way for me hundred percent. It wasn't totally random. It wasn't a total fluke. They should have showed us that. It would have been cool. But yeah. Knowledge surprise. I'm really looking forward to the fall of all this. I think we kinda talked about it like whenever this battle happened to ever survive. There's gonna pry be like a chasm because I mean donaire is gonna be fucking pissed. She just lost her dude dragons fucked up she just fought one of dragons, which couldn't have been very good for her. She lost the doth Raqi. She lost a shitload of on sully the army like she has to be the underdog in Vegas right now. Even with Gregg dry unless you wanted to. Derek, Gary and blue dragon. I mean, but but so the Syrian didn't chatter when everyone all the other one did. So is he still? White walkers shattered, though, the the died is back. Okay. All right because I chance he could like be be good again. So there's one dragon left to so one disappeared when he was getting like Bob by the white walkers. Right. That's not I was John's drag the one that's the cower John's you're the one who's the knucklehead going into fucking blindly. But that that drove me crazy, by the way, when like white walkers on the ground were able to take out a drag and it was like.
"george george martin" Discussed on Small Doses
"And I feel like that's something that could be possible. I have a feeling that Syria will set the iron throw them because I don't think deniro's will eventually when she gets it. I don't think you'll wanna keep it. I think what will happen is the nearest arguing will end up being pregnant and having a baby. And because of man wrote this show, it'll be like, well, I can't and be mom, and that's how that will happen. I swear to you. I really do feel that like it's going to be like, well, I wanna have this baby raises baby. I think it's more important for me. To raise his baby than to try and ways west rose. I know that I thought all of this and I killed a bunch of people. Everybody over here to really get this thrown. But. I'm gonna go over here and breastfeed. That's what I think. That's what they end up doing instead of like, but I can breastfeed on the iron throne, which is what I would love to see. But I just feel like they're not going to do it. It's too poetic. It's too poetic. Like, yes. The army of the dead is gonna come. And we gotta deal with that. But who's gonna sit the iron throne at the end first of all who's going to still be alive at the end. I'm pretty sure if if this was old thrones, sir, c would kill Jamie. But because it's new game of thrones. It's red at game of thrones Jamie's going to end up killing. So I think it's going to be that. If this is old game of thrones deniro's would not make it out of this deniro's John ended up dying like Romeo and Juliet and the flames, but this is new game of thrones. So they're going to end up happily ever fucking after. I think Arya stark and get injury argon end up together. Whether it's all thrones or new game of thrones, Rebecca's eggs. Yes. And I do think that. Various is going to survive because he's a survivor. Sansa is going to become the war of the north. And. Yeah. I think that's really where it's going to be samll Tara is going to head back up to castle black and be the macer castle black. But the real question is like who's going to be the one character that doesn't make it out that we're like. It's new game of thrones. So I worry that they're going to let all these mother fuckers live. Bear dairy and his back flaming sword. That's cool to see. But who's not gonna make it? If I had to choose maybe I don't know if Johnson, I was gonna make it who do you think Rebecca who's not gonna make it? I don't know because I don't want to put it out in the universe. It's all ready done. There's something we said about it. Right. But I definitely won't make it. He's not gonna now because she's too. She's done too, many that things. Well, I mean, but in the world game of thrones doing bad things you die. But we're in red at game of thrones. What about Brent what's gonna happen with breads raven? He's gonna make it.
