What's the Matter With Golden Corral? With Raheem Kassam
"Joining us now is Raheem kassam, Rahim, welcome back to the program, lots of topics we can cover. The one in particular I want to start with is this The Daily Show creator freaks out over Greg gutfeld's ratings, but says the audiences growths and insults golden corral. I've always said golden corral is actually largely underrated, but that's a separate issue for a different time. Let's play cut 97 and I'll have you respond Rahim. Look, here's what I always say. He ain't funny to me, but we see that there's an audience out there for like that. There's an audience out there for like Joe Rogan. There's an audience out there of shitty people. If 70 however 70 million people voted for Trump, like Fox News, those people are gonna laugh at that we think is up. Is he funny? Not to me. But he makes jokes about shit that I care about, which is gross. I think that whole situation is gross. But there's a market for it. The bottom line is there's a market for it. You know what else is this gross golden corral? I give it 50 50 odds that Greg gutfeld does his show live from golden geralt corral tonight. But Raheem you're response. Yeah, you know, I put this up on the sub stack because I just thought it was one of these amazing kind of deplorables two. I suppose we're on to, you know, deplorables 10,000. Moments where you have this, it's amazing to me and I'm fascinated by, especially what you were talking about in the leading to this, you know, if somebody needs a bit of humility and a step away from their own narcissism, it's somebody like Liz Winstead. Who, as you say, co created The Daily Show, fancies herself as a comedian, has tried her hand at stand up. I will add not particularly successfully. But has the audacity that temerity to sneer at audiences who, as you say, and as she said, go to golden corral. Now I've never been to golden corral, but you can bet your bottom dollar. I will be going to golden corral after that anti endorsement by Liz Winston.

"The sun is down, but the lights are on at the Ferris wheel in Atlanta right around the corner from Mercedes Benz stadium where the action will be hot. And we will be there in two days. We're getting Thursday. We'll begin our coverage. It's already begun here, but on the network, but we will be there for Thursday and Fridays. Program. Let's check out Vance, who is in Georgia. Hey, Vance, you're on the air. Good afternoon. Are you Paul thank you for taking the call. Thank you. Our dear legend kind of meet me to the point, but you know, I've had a little bit of bad luck here lately, been in the hospital a little bit, boo hoo, and I've got an opportunity on the TV to chaperone. And I said, oh, okay, Paul's back. And the first person I hear is Iron Man. I'm sorry, listen to this show in 2014 when it first ever came to my neck of the Woods here. Oh, I didn't know who you were at all. The one thing I did learn real quick is that Nick Saban has a permanent spot in Iron Man's head. Rent free. He can not get through a conversation without bitching about next day, and then going into that stupid little raspberry voice he uses. And then there's Daryl. Same difference. He can't quit talking about Alabama. Geralt of lifelong Georgia fan. Hey Daryl, I got news for you, my friend. Kirby smart does not like being compared to Nick Saban. Or Alabama or anything. I contend that Kirby smart and Nick Saban were two of the exact same people that just happened to get along great as assistant coaches. As he does as a system for him, yes, he learned some things. But he's no different. Yeah, he picked things up, but he was going to do this anyway. He was just destined. That's who he is. But if all they're going to do is keep talking about Alabama, then I guess that all that tells me is, no matter what they do, Alabama is a champ. And I hope it'll somehow change. I really do. Now I do want to ask you a quick question. You know, I don't remember a time when a team has been so utterly disregarded. As TCU is being disregarded, what do you think? Do you think I got a point there? I think you do. We act like they were just going to get murdered. They won the lottery. And they got to play, we every college team put in and they won, so they get to go get their brains beat out by Michigan. I'm with you. They were phenomenal team news here. I didn't believe it early on. I'm late to the party. I agree. The producer of the show right now is a TCU graduate. He was telling me about them early on, and I thought he was being a typical graduate man. Well, they are, I mean, they are giving so much credit to the Michigan victory of Ohio State. That is like, well, I don't know who they Michigan playing. Michigan has one big win. And we all know what that was. But beyond that, I don't know what else they did. They played them. They played an easy state. Yeah, they beat Penn State at home and. I respect the Big Ten, but it's hard to really gauge the Big Ten winning the Big Ten is not like winning the SEC. You look at Michigan schedule and you know, I tell you, you know, they wanted Iowa at the time. I thought that was a big deal. I'm not sure it really counted for much now. And the Illinois game, Illinois was a good team this year, and it took a last second Phil go to meet them. Now, the best thing Iowa has going for them is that children's hospital. Yeah, no, I agree. But other than that, they're all over the place. Well, let me make them a quick point about why Georgia needs to be very, very afraid of Ohio State. Okay. I want to hear this. This is a true statement. They weren't where they were. The last time this epic event happened where Ohio State whipped an SEC team in the final floor. Because here's what will happen. If Georgia loses to Ohio State, we will then be subjected to between four and 6 months of all Ohio calls. Advance, I have to, I know you said you've been struggling lately, but now I'm struggling, because you brought back one of the worst memories of my career. Horrific wasn't. Well, and here's why. We did the show, I think at Archie Manning's restaurant outside the night before the game. And we were literally Alabama fans didn't show up in New Orleans. They had already made plans for it was the first year of the playoff. They had spent all their money on Texas for the championship, and they really did not show. It was all a House state fans going south for the holidays. It was New Year's Eve. And when we literally laughed out loud at Buckeye fans who were taunting us telling us, they had a chance to win. And I said, you got a third string quarterback. You're not winning this game. And the next night, it wasn't the next night that bothered me. I never get too emotional about a football game. It was that day after January 2nd having to come back here and do the show and being subjected as you just mentioned, not only four hours that day, but four months of the most arrogant. Ohio State fans in history. And credit to you were taking the calls repetitive. No, it was over and over. It was a bad. Oh my God. I needed counseling after that first week. I still need it. Remember that guy from Mississippi, I can't remember. What was that guy's name? We started hearing from him. He started talking about the human being. Alabama being hot garbage in Ohio State was going to turn the clock back on a Buckeye. Yeah. He'll call back if they. Oh, I'm sure. He'll be calling me at midnight on Saturday. And Jeffrey, the clone, he'll be caught. Yeah, Jeffrey, we have not heard Jeff from Jeffrey's been too busy spending his construction money as opposed to calling about the Michigan game. Well, Vance, thanks for mentioning that. I know. The good news is that we will not be here on Sunday if we will be here on Monday though, so that's something to think about. Hey, you'd be well. I hope you hope you get better. Bubba in North Carolina. Hello, bubba. Hey, Paul, we all better be Georgia fans right now. 9 months of hell. You're absolutely right. Listen, I can handle the three or four Kansas state fans calling in, but I can't handle bucket. You can handle it, but there's no way I can put up a 9 months of buck I'll be here on your show. It's going to be a nightmare. I might take a leave of action. Hey, if you're going to, if you're going to pull off, I am Alabama bubba and toss beer mugs. We're going to beef you up a little bit. We're going to pack a little. We're about to get some red meat carbs and you reason I called everybody's discussed the Nick Saban and Alabama struggles. I'm an amateur procrastinator just like that much every other collar, but tell me what you think, but honestly, I think Nick is suffering from a lack of talent on his coaching staff, not only is roster.

"It before any of the movies before then, but this is where I was like, the franchise is dead to me. Of course, Justice League was wrong and bad for a lot of reasons, not all of which were the mustache. So I am officially lifting the ban on Mission Impossible. I know a lot of people follow me on that. You are now allowed to go watch Mission Impossible fallout. That's what it was. Yes. Whichever one where he reloads his arms and puts his beard on his face. You can go. What a cool ass moment in this very cool thing. It's what's weird about it though. Look at how small his arms look. And don't get me wrong, I'm not sitting here saying it's just 'cause he's got mister potato head body. I'm not out here judging people's bodies. But he looks like his arms are shorter than usual there. He looks great as geralt. He looks great. I think that's just the shirt though. What I learned is just the other way he brings it up, yeah. What I learned from Yusef McGee, right? He's my fashion guru. He's the one that taught me everything I know. And rule number one, when it comes to fashion. Just wear clothes that fit. If you were an outfit that fits, you're gonna look amazing, no matter what. And so fair enough. Henry Cavill, that's my tip to you. Also Barrett Andrew Cavill knows. I did drop something in assets. They were able to pull that up. Speaking of Henry Cavill, in Justice League. But while Barrett pulling that up, I do want to shout out the rest of my I was going to Spotify rap. The rest of my PlayStation rap, hold on. I run you through it. Because my number one game was eldering at a hundred hours. My number two game horizon forbid. Did you just screenshot this? 'cause at the end I got one card to share. How did you get this cool card? Which one? Oh, the top 5. I just screenshotted it. My number two is horizon. I don't have the hours, but it sets 7% of my play time was on horizon. At number three, 13 sentinels, Aegis rim, number four, God of War ragnarok, and then number 5, dying light two, stay human. Not bear, what's important here is the caption. more popular tweets that I tweeted out back in like 2017. 2017. And this is November 28th, 2017. This is a good one. Yeah, Justice League, 2017. It's an image of Mario without his mustache. That was photoshopped out. It's how Henry Cavill looked in that movie. It was good. It's terrible. But yeah, that was good. The terror was terrible. They did doing that movie. This is my beef with PlayStation wrap up. Well, no, not that. WWE two K 22 is a fighting game. You mentioned that it runs. I mean, can't get back to me on the one. Evo? You're a bunch of fucking cowards. Make a WWE category. Let me compete. Thank you. There you go. You know, we have it on our Patreon and thermometer that we're doing our own fighting game invitational. I can put WWE in. I would like that a lot. Yeah. Or are you going to be compete? Yeah, sure. Very cool. My beef is that I feel like they can get deeper in their Duffy. It is top 5 games that you played. Is this how many trophies has gotten? I really like analytics, and I like how deep Spotify has gotten in their analytics talking about your top 5 favorite artists, also yours or top, whatever songs, and also here's a playlist of your 100 most played songs of the year. I want PlayStation to get deeper in the Duffy of analytics. Tell me, actually, I don't think I even saw my favorite genre. So I didn't realize I was a thing. I'll show you. Yeah, let me see this. Also, I got a voucher. They awarded me with a free avatar, so that's pretty sweet. What the aster by one? Yeah, something fighting. Fighting avatar they said, I don't know, I don't know what that means, but we'll see. I want to know who are my top 5 publishers. I want to know, give me top 20 games that I played based on playtime. Sure. You know, I want to hear this analytics. Is that you and I both are well aware as the hosts or two of the hosts of let's not forget Janet two of the host of PS I love you xoxo. But you can't trust the stats on your PlayStation. You can't trust them. You know what I mean? Like you talked about it with Callisto. Your save said one thing. You estimated another thing. Your PlayStation said something completely different. So the fact again that this is working as well as it is right now, I don't think we need to lean harder for 20 more games because I don't want to know bullshit they're going to pull up. I just want to know, I want deep knowledge about my gaming habits. Because there's so many other games I played this year that I like to shout out to operation you just rim. Those aren't the first games I think of when I think of my 2022. Where does seafood fit in the puzzle? Where does king of fighters 15 fit in the puzzle? Where does Callisto fit in the puzzle? There are so many games down playing that aren't playtime type of games. Like seafood is a 7 hour game. If you're me at least, maybe 15 hours of your same games. I just want to know more of my gaming habits. That's why I bring up like the publisher thing or maybe I don't know how many games by developer or I hear you but you know PlayStation doesn't want you to think that way. They want you to think you play PlayStation games and hear a PlayStation games in the area your games that you didn't know. But I bet you for the most part PlayStation studios is going to dominate if they did by publisher. If they gave people that stat. Maybe for most people. Not us. Dying light, you know? Shout out to.

Tiger Woods doesn't 'have much left in this leg' to compete
"Woods withdrew from playing at the tournament he's hosting in Bermuda this weekend. I don't have much left in his leg. The injury is plantar fasciitis in his right foot. I can take golf balls. It's the walking that just hurts. The plantar fasciitis is related to injuries would suffered in a car crash in 2021, which ended any hope of him playing on a regular basis. Geralt for the biggest ones and hopefully lightning catches in a bottle and I'm up there in contention with a chance to win and I hope that I remember how to do that. Tiger Woods also doesn't have much hope for the PGA Tour and Greg Norman Saudi funded rival league live getting along. Not with Greg there and his animosity towards the tour itself. I don't see that happening. As Rory said, and I said it as well. I think Greg has got to leave. Lawsuits and counter lawsuits have been filed. I'm Ed Donahue

"Hexer moment? I had a general happy hexer time. Basically, anytime before, I thought was really cool. It's him in the blindfold with the guy like one V 1 a.m.. There was also a one really cool shot where there was an archer shooting at him, and he deflected an era with a sword, kind of standard. That was a cool shot, though. But then he's walking towards him and he just sidesteps one of them. The arrows, and I thought that was really cool. That was cool. That's the thing is that we're seeing some tricks here. We're seeing some directions. I also got a shout out the guy who played geralt because I feel like at least I did and I would imagine all of us, we really like the geralt that we've seen, right? And so often that's a hard hurdle to get over. And. It's a huge cap of last shave turtle that I need to leap over but I will ask. Once you get over to a place of liking a new girl and you know what? I sort over that catalog. I just slid down the beautiful ass, right? It is a browser town. And it was great. I think that the way they handled The Witcher powers was cool too. There were a little cheesy at times, but like generally Gerald's like kind of like push ability or like just the way you can charged up energy and spelled it. Yeah, it was very minimal. I like that. Because I guess in the video games, you're like literally drawing little runes in the sky. And that doesn't work quite as well. But I thought it was nicely handled here. I also really liked the relationship between geralt and jaskier and this, they were like real chummy. And we enjoyed it. Yeah, because they're a bit antagonistic in the TV show, at least in the first season. He's not like, oh, fine. Follow me. Yeah. But in this, they were more common. Yeah, it was more in this. It was more like, yes, gear, you all dug. You, me, a dragon cub and a poet. It's all move into a VFW hall together. You bring the folding tables, I'll bring the claw. Yeah, yeah, geralt had the energy of just a real regular guy, but that has like a crazy high school friend that he sees every once in a while. Yeah. Joey's here. We're gonna have a good time. We're absolutely gonna go nuts at this moment. Oh shit, Joey brought his loot. Oh my God. This guy, the lyrics make no sense, but he's gonna shred on that. Yo, Joey's about to recap the plot. Everyone get over here. Yeah, again, all the actress did a good job. The yes gear did some like cool like a coin trick at one point. I was like, that's kinda cool. Yeah, it looked cool. No, I think like similar to geralt, I was really pumped whenever you ask your showed up. He was having a good time. He like, he cracked some jokes. There was one moment where the guy was like, oh, did you enjoy your drink? And he was like, oh, actually, that blissful moment is sipping away from me. Can you please offer me another one? Yeah. And he kind of played it like cheekily. As I'm saying it out loud, it doesn't sound like a joke, but that's really added to it. Yeah, they didn't lean into any kind of humor because although, I don't know, the books aren't very funny. The one thing that I thought was maybe not a joke but very funny to me is there's like a guard and geralt says, are you gonna spit in my face too? And the guy like leans back to hakaluki and geralt just punches him in the face as he does. Yeah, girl ruled in this. It's really hard to make a girl that doesn't rule. Yeah, it's true. Geralt is sick. I think what's great about the geralt of the games and the girls of The Witcher series is like the kind of funny curmudgeon. And I think that comes through a little bit in the books. It doesn't really come through here. Like this is a pretty joyless movie. Yeah. And that's another gripe that I have with this movie that didn't need to be there. Even with not a great budget, you can have things feel kind of like more like a horror movie, like the winter has great flavor, it has great aesthetics. And they didn't lean into that at all. It's pretty much just like being at a medieval times. Do you know what was kind of a pet peeve of mine is it felt like whenever we weren't actively in battle, it was just like shots of like 5 people standing in a row. Oh yeah. It's just like 5 people in a row having a conversation and not really not cutting in closer, anything like that. I know obviously there's production limitations, but I was like, please, just give me a one shot. One crowd. That's the TV show. It was a multi cam sitcom and then they stitched it. When they made it a movie they just edited out all the laughter. Geralt is old children. Right, yeah, in the conjunction of the spheres Sheldon goes to The Witcher verse. The great bazinga. Butcher of bazinga. I really liked that during the scene where the hedgehog night shows up. They're all having like a banquet. And it seems like they gave them actual food to eat and you just see them all like picking it like greasy little birds. Yeah. And she's like, you know what? This is like a sparsely attended feast. They're clearly trying to cover the crowd with just a few shots. But I want to be there. Again, I want to larp in this world. I don't want to watch it on TV, but I want to be a funny part of someone that has done a little bit of TV. I guarantee that food smelled fucking nasty. And the actors were sitting there being like, Jesus fucking Christ. Why did they get real food? It is stinking. I can't believe they got 40 pounds of pheasant. It stinks like fucking pheasant in here. When are they gonna call cut? I need a gag. And y'all had a lot of pheasant when you were filming hot day. Yeah, yeah. I've had a barf a lot of times. And Jake, you've probably had to barf a lot in Jake and Amir. Oh yeah, yeah. It's always like what they give you to call clam chowder. That is insane. That no one has ever given me cold clam chowder. That's cruel. Yeah, we did oatmeal oatmeal with almond milk, and it was pretty tasty. I feel like oatmeal that you can color different colors. I feel like I've had soup. I've had soup for I feel like I've definitely had soup because I remember the sodium taste just from having it. And it's so cold. And that's like fuck it, but that soup looks a lot better than the oatmeal.

"Take the wolf necklace off, though, to have some tasteful lovemaking with yennefer. I noticed that and I thought it was a little strange. Why do you have to take your necklace off to make love? Right, that's why she's fucking you in the first place. Exactly. Yeah, the wolf necklace is cool. You leave that. She wants the visual. We talk about how yennefer was introduced by saying, as you know, I can't have children, so I'm looking for a way to do that. Like, that is like the first lunch. I mean, a lot of this stuff is just the YouTube translation thing of there's just some stuff that's like not gonna translate perfectly. Like at one point the guy comes out and because this is obviously this is all in Polish. And a guy comes out to face the very bad CGI dragon that looks like a 1993 CGI from Warcraft and he says you're a bad dragon and I know probably what the original line is is probably like you nasty beast or something like that. It's probably something like that, but he's just like calls him bad like he's naughty or something and it's just kind of funny and then he's been a very bad boy. Then that dude gets one shot tail swiped by the CGI dragon. I think that was a cool I thought that was a cool shot for like all the effects that were really bad. The POV through the visor with just a tail swinging towards him. That was a good way to get around it. Yeah, the helmet flying in the air as you clearly dies. Yeah, that's the thing. I mean it's no candelabra getting thrown against a wall. Every once in a while show that they've got these tricks and stuff. And even like the castle at the beginning at the wedding, we were talking about just looks like it's in a VFW hall or at like a wedding reception. It was definitely just like they were like cool. So all we need to do is put some tablecloth just some tablecloths down, right? And then have some nights sit down. Tablecloths on the tables on the walls on the ceilings. Just cover everything in table. Some we have a bunch of red tablecloths. The taverns and stuff later looked really good to the taverns looked great. I wanted to like larp in the middle. I know. There was one part where it looked straight out of the when he first meets dandelion yes gear. It looked straight out of how he meets him in the 2021 or the 2020 year. Okay, do we think do we think, again, we're giving we're experimenting with different perspectives to see this. Do we think it's possible that their budget got increased since it was being filmed like a TV show that they're starting to see dailies. They're like, oh, we really got some room here. Let's put a little more money into it. Emily, I would say that, but like the last fight scene is like geralt versus like four basically CGI Yoshi's. Oh, there were dinosaurs who did fight, yes. I thought they were definitely cute. But yeah, again, if they had been puppets, it could have worked. But yeah, that's what is really strange about this. Instead of leaning into the things that were, like, just having practical effects on. Practical effects work, they just work for me. No, but they're better. They're just better. Just give a dude. Why do these words dinosaurs when you can just have a guy with horns? Yeah. That's CGI was definitely not impressive for the time. And at the very least, the practical stuff would be in line with other practical. Yeah. Where it's like got some charm to it, you know? Yeah, I was looking up what other movies came out in 2001. Okay, oh, this is fun. Yeah, we got not another teen movie. Namesake. Yeah. And then Donnie darko. How high Black Hawk down? And Josie and the pussycats. Has terrible CGI. Incredible. Never seen. The helicopters all CGI. I believe, I believe the hexagon has big cartoon eyes. Everybody hop in. Okay, Josie and the pussycats, let's go ahead and look at that. That movie. I can't say whether or not it deserves my name. Okay, I just pick a break and watch that. I'm talking about that. I can't tell you if it was good or bad. I have no idea, but I can tell you it was a huge box office flop. Because the budget it says was 22, two 39 million. The Witcher? No, no. The hexer? Josie and the pussycats. Where are we doing? Because I want to give comparison because it would have been really, really fucking hard for them to make this good. They really would have had to lean into their strengths, which is like practical effects, making it spooky, making it like quiet and stuff like horror movies have low budgets. This was made for $4 million, which compared to Josie and the Pacific, which was 22 to $40 million. So probably let's say around 30 million. Right, so the hexer was made for $4 million. Yes. I just watched American psycho. It was made for $6 million in America. Wow. Horror movies, but the dragon looks terrible in that movie. Dragon looks really bad in American psycho to be fair today to the hexer. Wow, did you guys know that, oh, it's just dubbing, never mind. The guy Michael's a who plays geralt in this film, dubs the Polish version of Doctor Strange. He was great. Everyone was really good. Yeah. The woman who's like the prophet in the one scene. Oh yeah. Like the culture, the temple. She was really good. Yeah, everybody was good. That's why if everybody was like that lady murdered off screen, by the way. Yes. Or everyone was murdered off screen. Most people were such a big part of the story. At some point just says, I went there and they were all dead or something. I didn't see that. No, he goes, he goes to a bar in the next town, and he's like, did you hear what happened at the temple? They killed everybody. Just like the prophet fucking said, what happened? He also dubs geralt in the Netflix. Fuck yeah. Sick. Oh, that's cool. Where he is true geralt. Yeah. He's as geralt as Cavill, if not more. Yeah. Do you think they've ever met? I'm gonna say no. There is a doppelganger monster in in Witcher. Yeah, you think? Oh, that would make sense. The two. I feel like they would have to, right? You'd kind of have a little, I feel like probably Cavill if you're a Witcher fan. And you have the opportunity to meet both the guy who voices the video game, the guy who voices the original rendition of it. You would not turn that down. Do you think that Cavill met zabel skin was like, I'm thinking for my take on the character, I'm just gonna have like a perfectly sculpted ass in tight leather pants. And the camera's really gonna focus on my beautiful ass. What do you think about that zeb? Having trouble finding a picture immediately of them together.

"Every time. Yeah, I wish people would more love. More love surprises. Surprise me. I love just like a check. Honestly, if I could just have a check instead, but you want some surprise again. Here's a bunch of kittens. Okay, I mean, just like, give like a, I don't know, like a car you could give me. No, the car is full of accounts. I mean, love, surprise. Literally, I'm always surprised by the new cats that show up. Yeah. Child surprise does sound like a 90s toy brand. I was gonna say it seems like one of those little you don't know what's gonna come in the box. You buy like the little surprise box and it's like, yeah, it's a blind child surprise. I wonder what kind of child will be in here. And that was pound puppies. You didn't know how many dogs were gonna be in there that's freaking true. Yeah. Which is so messed up, right? Because it's devastating when you don't get that many. I think they probably mostly, I think they said you could get like three to 5 and when you get three, you know you must be so pissed. Yeah, I bet you nobody got three. I bet you that was a mark. I feel like I remember someone getting three. Really? Devastating. I would sue. I would sue. The fun part of pound puppies isn't the dogs. It's getting to do a live dog birth delivery. Yeah, it's true. And getting to that is getting to see a dog and laborers really. Crazy when you're a little girl, how many how many maternity things people give you? I had like multiple barbies that had stomachs you could push in and put a baby in there and stuff like that. The babies that could piss were also so funny. It's like, yeah, here's a doll that you don't have to worry about, but let's give it an accident. A little bit. Kids love that shit. And then the tubes always are the tubes always get funky and then the baby just fills up with water. I love my mildew baby. But yeah, in this movie, they did the whole Siri and geralt story of geralt chasing Siri and them coming together. They did that. Plus they did. They did the hedgehog marriage story. They did the gold dragon. They did the butcher of blaviken, where renfri and the bandits show up and cause trouble with stray. Oh yes, dragon bores up in there. Up in there. Good God, we can't escape him. And then there's the swamp monster guy that was gonna say the swamp monster fight was probably the one that I feel like they got the least coverage for. Because that fight was just like, I think that they had maybe three shots total. Did he fight that monster twice or did they just kind of have two identical monsters back to back? Always with the vines. Yeah, it's always with the vines. Well, I mean, I think that's kind of like a recurring theme with Polish folklore and monsters. It's like something's gonna get you. Something's in the swamp. So it's gonna try and get you, do not hear the water. But there was hedgehog guy looking pretty good. Yeah. I'm gonna say, honest to God, B plus in the head. We love a duty. We love it. We love a duty in this house. I like the big, I like the big creature he brought out of the cave when he met everyone. Dragon? Oh, he just like, when he was wearing a headband for no reason. Oh, the basilisk. Yeah, he showed up at one point dragging a basilisk very good. So funny 'cause clearly everyone was like, this isn't working for you, geralt, and they just never, you never see him with it again. Yeah. He just got made fun of one time. It was just like, I guess I lost it. Did you take it? Did you take off that headband? Because we made fun of you. Go off. I really liked it. It took it from me. It's gonna take me a while to find a new one that fits correctly. Until then, we should all forget about it. It never happened. I guess nothing is as cool as your wolf necklace. What? What the hell? What are you talking about? Oh shit. I caught on this branch. I think the

"So this was the first thing was him establishing the law of surprise with Siri. So it's series parents. Then it cuts to God, I have no I don't even think then we go to the gold dragon. Oh my God. Then it goes to that gold dragon thing, which was not great CGI. It looked like, but at least some of my favorite, my favorite moment. Your favorite moment deeply. Yeah. My favorite moment is when they're all like staring over the cliff at the gold dragon and clearly the actors had not seen the CGI yet, so the reactions are all like it's beautiful. Amazing. It is mean to do to actors, right? To have them talk about how good something looks and then put in the worst. Put in a cinematic from Warcraft two in 1993. It dragon ass looking thing with big eyes. It looked like it did look like children's animation too. Big eyes. Is that they didn't have to do any of this. Like I said, I know that you don't have a big budget, but you don't have to do the dragon story. My favorite part though was there was a little puppet dragon cub. That yennefer chases, and then she gets the dragon cub, and then I don't know what happens to her for the rest of the movie. Yeah, she's just gone. She's gone, but geralt helps her get this dragon cub, and then shoes everyone away, who was trying to kill the dragon cub, and then it's him. Yennefer and the dragon cub, and he says, well, it looks like it's just you, me, a dragon cub, and a poet. And I was like, wow. I'd watch that show. Yeah. 'cause the dragon club kind of looked like one of the little aliens from Men in Black. And they were practical puppet going. It kinda looks like figment from Disney. Oh God, that's probably why all these dragons were figma as dragon. Get back to fucking Epcot with these dragons. You kill me. So yeah, so it literally cuts from establishing that series parents are getting together to geralt at a bar with this dude who is just being kind of fishy the whole time and it's just keeps talking about dragons for some reason. This was probably a supposed to be a beginning of an episode. Yes, yes, yes. So this was obviously and they did this in the book and they did this in The Witcher TV show, which is this guy's like on a mission, but it turns out that he secretly the dragon that everybody's trying to hunt. Yeah. So this dragon basically reveals himself at some point, stops like kills a bunch of the hunters by dropping rocks on them. And everyone says it's beautiful. That's in his cool when he, 'cause he starts The Rock slide by flipping a coin onto a bunch of pebbles and then the pebbles start cascading down the hill. That's one of his horde powers. A good scene was when geralt was drunk and he was talking to, I believe the dragon. Oh yeah. And then he was talking about, I don't remember this from the TV show that we watched or the video game that we played. He was talking about how the guy was like, is there any monster you won't kill? And geralt's like dragons because dragons ran away from humans. So men hunt dragons, dragons, hunt sheep, and everything else, but they don't hunt humans. And I was like, wow, this is pretty sick. Yeah, I want to put one point on the good geralt counter, 'cause this actor, I feel like really had some fun geralt moments that set him apart and like really made me enjoy watching him. And like him like passionately defending dragons, I'm like getting a little heated and looked like he was about to start a bar fight with this guy about dragons was really great. And then the Flintstones babes were like mackin on him and she was and he was just still talking about how beautiful he thought dragons were. I've seen this guy at a bar doing this exact thing. It was a real move that he only asked one of the women what their name was. And he turns to the left and he says, what's your name? And then she tells me that's pretty. And then it cuts. Just

"Against a fan really hard on the table. And then it was just like stuff they were doing with light. Like when they were inside that scene, there's a one point where like, there's a guy standing in front of a table with minimal set dressing, like just a candle on it. Oh, yeah. There's nothing hung. There's not even a Tapestry behind him. It's just an orange wall, and he's in a cheap costume. And I'm like, this looks like a production of a high school play. Yeah, but see, I think that's why I think they're pleasingly low budget sometimes, 'cause it does feel like a stage play, so I forgive it. I actually thought the costumes were pretty good except for the flintstone twins. Yeah, but there were there were two women in leopard print at one at one point. It felt like the main characters had good costumes and then every single background character that was where they decided to save. Yeah, one point rent free showed up and she looked pretty good and I was kind of surprised. I was like, huh, this looks like a real character. Yeah. But anyway, so just to give a light synopsis of what's going on here because we can not recommend that you watch this. No. This isn't even it's not even funny. You can see it just on YouTube, so you can scrub. You can't just scrub around in there to scrub. There are going to be ads, two hours, two hours of your life, you could do something so meaningful. Too full hours. So basically, this was the first attempt to adapt the books 'cause there wasn't even the video game wasn't even out yet. There's this 2001. And it kind of like Jake was saying it was supposed to be a TV show. So it jumps around from story to story while trying to have the kind of ongoing thing of geralt tracing chasing Siri. So it's kind of like The Witcher Netflix series, but just so, so much worse and so much more confusing. And I would say The Witcher Netflix series was pretty confusing. Pretty confusing. Way more confusing. Imagine if all of his missions took place in 5 to ten minutes. Yes. All of season one, each episode is ten minutes in this. It would literally, it would literally cut from somebody talking about something that you thought was going to happen next, and then it would just cut to a different mission. It would be like, that man is a problem, and then it would just cut into a different man. And you'd be like, huh. Well, we're too many characters. Yeah. So if you're familiar with the story at all, it starts with a series parents. It starts with the hedgehog guy who comes to claim pavetta is her name. Yeah, yeah. Yeah, there's the big fight at the wedding. Geralt helps and then there's the law of surprise, so he's gonna, he's gonna get Siri later. So the hedgehog guy best look in CGI in the movie. He didn't look that weird. I think that show was practical. He looked good. So that's other practical effects were terrible. Yeah, aside from the tankers blowing up. So the tankards was great. I like that worm at the beginning. I think that's one of the problems. I think I did too. I'm not the worst. I'm the freaking worm. You gotta remember that this is, it's 2001. This is like almost ten years after Jurassic Park. So it's not like you can forgive. A smaller one, a smaller 50th of the budget. Yeah. Filmmaking. They still made a bad puppet. I don't think it's magical. I think that what makes it a little bit unforgivable is the fact that when you see stuff like the hedgehog, you're like, oh, if you guys just condensed this into a movie where it was just, you know, I think it's the strega, right, is the story that is also in the TV series where geralt has to spend like a night in this castle trying to basically hunt this vampire woman. If they had just done a story like that and practical effects on one human esque monster, they absolutely could have nailed it. Because there's some good costume design, there's some good set design in some of the castles in some of the taverns they look legit and just that one monster looks good. And the acting is great. Acting great. Yeah. I think I can be pretty forgiving of. I think that I'm forgiving of bad puppets. I'm not forgiving of bad situations. Totally. Totally. But I guess what I'm saying is you could have just used their specifically, there's creatures called drowners and stuff that are just like monsters that come out of the water. You could have just gotten a guy wet. You could have just covered a guy in mud, and had him swing. He's not a muddy guy in there. And I haven't tried to attack geralt. More money, guys. They might have been excited to try. They were excited. They got excited about their worst. The shots that they got to try to make the puppets work were always just like a super close up of a tentacle instead of like, yeah. And then they matched that with geralt's shots. So it was just like, I mean, the fight scenes were almost unwatchable. So that's another thing is that the sword fighting scenes weren't even good. I was gonna say humans. The moment when he didn't, the moment when geralt was unhandled and didn't have his sword and just took a couple punches to get his sword back, I was like, I think this is the best fight I've seen. Yeah. Everyone runs at him with their arm up like this. Both arms outstretched. And he kills everyone in one swipe. That's the thing. Right. Everyone. Geralt is like everyone for humans. And then falls off their horse. I think it's supposed to be geralt is superhuman fighting against good swordsman and he's just better, but this is just geralt a good swordsman and everyone else is more on. She's like slashing at the camera and then guys going it's like they were spun around ten times then someone put a sword in their hands. They just run at him like waving. They wave it like it's a mace or something or like a morning star. What's that a flail? I mean, they definitely perhaps. Okay, I'm just fucking. You're gonna defend it. No, no, no. Well, I'm saying that perhaps it was more realistic than we would think because swords are really heavy. So they kind of all swung them like they were surprised how heavy. It was everyone's first time with the sword. So maybe that's truth of all the some armies.

"This is the officer Tatum show. On the Salem news channel on the Salem podcast network and right here right now. I'm back to the children of our society. And we've talked about the parenting. We've talked about policing, police officers getting killed by these lunatics and last night I was on the news speaking about how our society has failed police officers by not giving them the options or giving ability to be equipped, demeaning them, demoralizing them. They're short staffed and it's contributing to the delinquency against police officers is contributing to the hatred when politicians come out and say cops are just out here killing people for no reason. They are here just murdering black people unarmed black men they showed nothing but a negative light of police that creates an increased hatred and violence and perpetual propensity of violence towards police officers. And that's why these things are happening, but I want to continue to talk about our youth. Because this story I was reading and it was number one on my stack when I was studying for the show. It was number one and then the policing took president when I started reading about some of these police shootings, but this was the very next story that compelled me and angered me earlier this morning. And Randolph Vermont, you have these young girls who have come out, young girl named Blake Allen and her teammates are outspoken about a biological boy going into the young girl's locker room. So this boy is now identifying as a girl. Wants to play volleyball and you have young women who are in a locker room and this is where the complaint started, they are in the locker room, they're getting dressed and getting undressed in this person walks in and they feel incredibly uncomfortable and one of the girls reported that this dude, this boy that now want to identify as a girl, is now looking at naked young girls in the locker room. I mean, she can see that his eyes and his attention is going to these young girls. This is where you, this is where it makes me mad. Because when you go through and read it, the district don't care. The district is now looking at the young girls. They're the problem. Because they're not inclusive enough. The guy has a wing. He got a wing. Why would young girls feel comfortable with this boy in there putting this junk out? I just don't understand. You know, it gets creepy, it gets stupid, it gets weird. I'm sick of it. Just like when they were when they had these football players that say, listen, let me just explain like this. When you play football, if you gay, don't say nothing. You should shut your mouth if you're in a mail locker room and you gay. Why should you shut your mouth, Brandon? Because you got other men in that naked bro, you ain't attracted to these men? And how uncomfortable would I feel knowing to my brother next to me looking at my stuff when I'm changing my clothes and I'm thinking, look, he thinking about sleeping with me. He ain't just like the other boys popping each other with the child having fun. Homeboy looking in my Johnson. 'cause he's intrigued. That's a problem, bro, we're supposed to be playing football together. That's just like if you had just like if you had a girl, this is like I went into a softball locker room. And I'm like, no, I'm totally fine with these naked women in front of me. Come on, man. You think these women ain't gonna feel uncomfortable? Ain't no way in the world that I say I wasn't attracted to him. And I'm in the locker room and they make it every day. But you know the world want to be so soft and wimpish that we can't keep it real until the truth. If you like me and just keep it to yourself bro when you in locker room, just like when young women, you like women, you attracted to young women. Keep it to yourself. Because nobody want to feel uncomfortable in the locker room getting naked because they think you're looking at them. It's the same thing with trans kids. The kid running there with a penis. And they went, what is she supposed to do? When he pull his drawers off, just like the girls are when they get into taking a shower, he got a Johnson. While the young girls have to be exposed to that. Now, let me just tell you this. Now, if he did not identify as a girl, and he pulled his pants down, he would be going to jail. That'll be steadily sexual harassment. That'll be exposing, you know, exposing yourself indecent exposure. But just because you identify as a girl, you can pull your pants down and the girl is supposed to feel like that that's totally fine. They go in too far, it's one person, have them change in another locker room. And he could join the team outside of them getting naked. Because, you know, it's such an ambiguous situation because just because you trans don't mean you don't like women. The little boy can say, I identify as a girl, but I still like girls. And he's in heaven. He's in a locker room full of naked girls. And he's still like geralt just because he traded on me, they don't like girls. You need to, we need to get that stuff out of the locker room, man. If you're confused about your sexuality, get him another locker room to change, and then y'all can go play volleyball as a team. If you just insist, but I'm sick of it, man, parents are sick of this stuff. And you know, it's funny because a part of me is like, man, should I be saying this? But in reality, it's like, why can't we be honest about how we feel about these things? I know I'm not the only one talking about this.

"Thank you so much as you just heard from Charlie. Shares of PepsiCo. They are rallying today. And that is on the back of what we got from the company, lifting its outlook, drink, snack, sales, bucking, inflation, meaning the company is still able to hike prices to battle inflation. So it was a strong quarter. It was. And to help us understand what specifically was strong about it and how we can read into Pepsi's results for other companies. We've got geralt pascarelli joining us. Senior vice president of equity research at Wedbush securities, Gerald joining us on the phone from New York City. Good to have you with us this afternoon Gerald really appreciate you taking the time. What do we what did we find out from Pepsi about the strength of the consumer because they were able to raise prices and people paid? First of all, thanks. Thanks very much for having me on the show. And yeah, it was a great earnings from Pepsi. I think that when you look at the leading trends heading into earnings, which are typically going to come from scanner data, Nielsen or IRI, what you saw was just a continued strengthening of growth across really cold beverages as well as snacks. With Frito lay in for Pepsi, that accounts for over 40% of their total company profits. And the salty snacks data has just been fantastic. They're back to gaining market share. And they're actually in scanner data doing over 20 points of price. And so we thought it was going to be a good print. They delivered a good print. And what you really saw was price led revenue growth across most of these segments, which is really not only driving a strong top line, but it's helping to protect against these outsized levels of commodity inflation. And it was really strong across the board when you look at all of their segments. I just want to make sure I heard right. Frito lay and PepsiCo, you said a 40% of the profits you're talking about PepsiCo that brand and then it's Frito lay brand. So Frito lay is a segment within that Pepsi reports on and that segment in particular Frito lay North America is 40% of total company profit. So it's meaningful. It's the biggest profit driver. And when you're getting 20 points of price mix and they actually reported 20 points of price mix, which is kind of in line with what we've been seeing in scanner, you're going to have good profitability. Okay, so so far so good in terms of raise it being having the ability to raise price. Prices. As you know, the macro conversation we often talk about, the fed continue to raise rates. The prospect of recession, what kind of recession it would be. How much more can PepsiCo do something like this? Yeah, I think that as of right now, pricing remains robust and the volume elastic, the demand elasticity. So the volume impact has been relatively muted, which is encouraging. I don't think anyone's expecting this strong double digit pricing to persist. And if you kind of look at where consensus estimates were for 2023 heading into the quarter, they're expecting to normalization to the mid single digit range. And so I think, you know, as you get more through the fourth quarter and then into 2023, you'll likely see a normalization in this pricing, which in turn should result in some better volume throughput as part of the revenue algorithm. But as of right now, these are essentially lower price needs based products. Which is one of the benefits in the current environment is that consumers need these products. And they're relatively low price. So you can generate pretty meaningful price mix. Hey, Joe, what about when it comes to Coca-Cola? And what this means for Coca-Cola because there's no Frito lay equivalent at Coca-Cola. There's not. But encouragingly, I did mention Frito as a segment that was delivering strong pricing, but they're actually getting strong pricing in cold beverages as well. And when you look at some of the trends for Coke, Coke's actually getting the best price mix because they are the market leader within carbonated soft drinks, which is the most important category for them. So I think that this is definitely a positive read on Coca-Cola. Even though they don't have a snack segment, we would expect this strong pricing that we've seen for Pepsi to persist with Coke as well as Keurig Dr Pepper. One thing to note about Coke, the shares have definitely sold off. I know there was broad market pressure over the course of the month of September. But these shares did sell off more so than some of the other non alcoholic beverage peers. And that's largely due to currency. And some concern around the European consumer. I'll just tell the audience said, you know, Coca-Cola is 66% international. Yeah, we have to think about the global component and the currency component when it comes to something like Coca-Cola, which is at the 1% on the back of that PepsiCo news Joe pascarelli of Wedbush, thank you.

"This is all things considered, I'm also Chang. And I'm Ari Shapiro. We have some sad news about a friend and former colleague. Anne Gerald's longtime foreign correspondent for NPR died today of lung cancer. She was 71 years old. Here at NPR Gerald's was known as a passionate reporter willing to go anywhere in the world at a moment's notice if the story required it. She was also a warm and generous friend to many, NPR's lineare has this remembrance. When Ann Garros arrived at NPR in 1988, she already had a lot of experience under her belch, ten years in television news at ABC, where she was bureau chief in both Moscow and Central America. Carols made a strong impression on NPR's Deborah Amos. She was this glamorous television reporter who came here. She didn't dress like the rest of us at the beginning. And she'd had this long and remarkable career before she landed here. So she was this tough cookie who arrived. She was always braver than me. And I always understood that she was braver than me. That bravery led girls into many war zones, and when it came to covering wars, Garros was there at the beginning, three columns of Russian troops continue to press toward grozny in the largest military operation since the Soviet withdrawal from Afghanistan in 1989. In the middle of the battle, there was a constant thud thud thought overnight this morning we heard warplanes flying low over the Iraqi capital and at the peace table. The atmosphere at this morning signing ceremony was one of weary relief, not joy until just weeks ago Croats and Muslims had been at war. Hope and Garros was the kind of reporter who would drive alone across a war zone if that's what it took to get the story. But in a 2003 interview with NPR Susan stamberg, Carol's insisted she was not a war junkie. I didn't set out to be a war correspondent. It just, the wars kept happening. Indeed, as NPR's Ted Clark, one of her former NPR editors remembers it, Garros was a prolific reporter, with a seemingly endless curiosity about the world. She went everywhere she was in every continent. I looked at her stories on the NPR archives, and there were 90 pages, and on all kinds of subjects, not just political, not just military, but social, artistic, cultural. I never worked with Annie on a story that she wasn't passionate about. NPR's Philip Reeves worked with geralt's on many stories from Iraq to Pakistan, but he first met Gerald's in Moscow, Reeves says geralt had a deep love and understanding of Russia. And she also had this extraordinary ability to really understand the way Russian people think. Unlike a lot of reporters who just go out there and collect quotes and then relay them to their editors, and he could actually get right inside the minds and hearts of people. And that's what made her an incredible reporter. And I think she was particularly impressive in Russia. As much as Angelo's loved Russia, she is probably best known for her reporting during the 2003 Iraq War. Carols was one of a handful of foreign reporters who remained in Baghdad as the war began. As she told in pure Susan stamberg, she used a satellite phone for her reports, and went to great lengths to conceal it from Iraqi authorities. And then I had decided that it would be very smart if I broadcast naked. So that if God forbid the secret police were coming through the rooms, it would give me maybe 5 minutes to answer the door pretend I'd been asleep sort of, I don't have any clothes on. And it would give me maybe a few seconds to go hide the phone. Garros later wrote about her wartime experiences in Iraq in a book called naked in Baghdad. And pierce Deborah Amos, who also reported from the Iraqi capital, remembers one time when Garros wanted to do a piece about cemetery workers in Najaf. This was at the height of the killing. And it was terrible in Baghdad. And frightening. And so Annie went rolled in a carpet in the back seat of a car through the worst neighborhoods so that she would not be visible. The piece was beautiful. And no one, of course, except for all of her colleagues knew what it took
Dose of Leadership
"geralt" Discussed on Dose of Leadership
"Super naive. Because I had an assumption of goodwill. I assumed that everybody wanted our communities our neighborhood, our kids, to be better. And that was the only motive. That was the only motor that people had, right? I was so naive. I really believe that. I really, and I laugh now because I really believe that I really believe that everybody wanted to see the community in the conditions of the community to be better and equal for everyone. I thought that. Low and behold, to my surprise, that was the case. And that was the most frustrating. That was the eye opener for me. I've been doing this work. I opened it for me because that didn't make sense to me. Because I used to always want to why I communities look like this. Why do I come here and look like this? Why you can not be better and especially when you have leadership in those positions who look like me. I would assume I was just naturally assumed, but okay, they gonna make the right call to make sure that the community is taken care of. And so that was, and that's how I looked at it. And I felt like it. I felt like, man, we all are trying to make it better. But utterly to my surprise, I found something totally different. You know, even when we was going into the schools, right? We came into the schools, right? And within a year or two, we changed this whole school around. I mean, prior tests going in, teachers will breaking up fights. They couldn't teach. They were worried about their safety. They were breaking up fights. They were just like this is chaos. And so you bring in these bull elephants that come in, you know, so now the kids can't be bullish anymore because they big homies in the school. They big brothers there, you know, and they ought to be positive troopers, you know, to make sure everything is, you know, bullying, all that kind of stuff is not happening. So it's hard to be on the tough kid in your big brother walk in the hallway, someone in your neighborhood that you respect, that that's telling you that that's not tolerated. So you have to just get in line and do what you have to do. And so to teach us, we're able to teach. Whenever they had a problem, they would call one of our guys, we would come and the problem is solved, you know? Hey, helicopter, I go back to apologize. And they have no problem. And so you would think like with that, everybody would be cheering. Like, oh, yes. I know, right? But to the to the contrary, you know, and this was resource officer too, officers who was into schools as well. You know, the youth action people who were placed in school to handle that kind of situation, those situations which the kids didn't respect them because they didn't know how to connect to the kids. They didn't know how to get the kids to do two different words. They didn't know how to, they did not connect. But our guys and geralt did. So they end up becoming our detractors. Yeah, because it threatens their existence. Their ego, their job. Exactly. They're like, we should be able to do this because this is what my job title says. It could be stuck. Thugs. That's what's happening. That's what's happening. So while they listen to these guys, you know. Yeah. That was the chat. Why did they listen to these guys? Yeah, it's so frustrating. Yeah, because. Yeah, as you get older and you just figure, oh, I just assumed that you would want this, and then you're right. But I've been in situations where I've seen these things and jobs where you go in and we should be on the same page, but ego gets involved, right? And that's what's happening there. So frustrating. But hey, at least, you know, the thing that's so great is that all these things in the book you talk about this audacity of activism, right? And so that's kind of the lesson you learned, we're working with dawn and the reality of activism for a lot of folks. And I think that's important for people to kind of open my eyes and I think I knew this is the realm of activism and sometimes just the name only, right? I mean, sometimes there's a lot of activist groups out there that are just in it for their own ego and don't even care about the real result, right? Right. Right. Right. We live in a society of celebratory society. So it's more about me being this personality versus me being me having substance and really helping people and that has gotten away. And that's why even in the book I talk about the dance activism and this new term redemptive act of it. That's how I coined that term rich and redemptive activism because I'm looking at the landscape and I'm seeing just even in that instance with school situation. And in the other instance, like we're done, what I learned was that activism has took on this condemnatory nature where if it's not condemning, then it's not actively. And I think that's wrong. I think that's not how you do it. I think that in this new form of activism and I'm talking about redemptive activism because redemptive back to say the person place or thing is not confined or defined by any action or the past tense and it's granted in a right to a man modified or just, right? If we approach any situation like that, right, that we're not going to hold this, we're not going to find this person or this situation or this system to some of the past to something that happened in the past, but we have to give everyone an everything the right to amend modify just because we all make choices that we don't care to admit. We all make mistakes, but do we define or do we take that mistake and be changed to if ever? Or do we have an opportunity to do something different? Do we have opportunity to make it right? And so when I look at activists today, because they come from.
"geralt" Discussed on Woman's Hour
"From that range of superlative patterns, that terrifying list of requirements, they got thousands of applications. In fact, geralt cop, who was the director of television, was quoted as saying, an impossible situation has arisen. Women all over the world want to be announces. They're basically this flood of requests. And then they finally finally and amazed they managed to find two. They select two women, Jasmine bligh, and Elizabeth Cowell, who in their mid 20s who become stars overnight. And it literally and visibly and metaphorically puts women center stage. Because in the early days of radio, they were always male voices doing an announcement in news and they were never named because they thought that the personality would intrude into the newspaper. So basically, these two women become stars of early television when television closes during the war years, Jasmine bliss the first voice, the first face you see saying, hello, do you remember me? Welcome back. Let's talk about the Indian cookbook, which you've selected for us. She's the first woman really to promote true Indian cookery on air. And she does the book type TV tie in, which had just been done with Delia Smith, followed by the education department. And the great thing about nata Jeffrey is that she was a became a chef completely by accident. She couldn't cook at all. She was as bed sit in London. She wrote to her mother, these air their letters came back to her with all the recipes. And she began to learn how to cook. And that's what she did on television for the nation. If you transform the British nation into a nation of Paris lovers. And she made us by stealth. I love by our aberration for her. A multicultural nation in the heart of the home. And tell us yes, go ahead. We got a couple of minutes left, but this is the one I really wanted to talk about. Well, we couldn't tell the story of a nation and the story of BBC without showcasing women's because you have been an amazing vehicle for showing the transformation of women's lives and the ongoing transformation. So what we have is your showcase object is the woman's our quilt. In 1993, which celebrates your 5th anniversary and 75 years of suffrage. And so the 80 patches came from all your different listeners and they told personal very personal and very diverse stories of women. So you have first female priest. You have female workers in World War II, but using parachute silk, they made. You have female activists. And they're all made into this wonderful quilt, which is now actually in the V and a so it's enshrined in the nation's history of craft making. And yeah, so that's one of our star objects. And it must have been very difficult to select which of those patches went into the quilt, because how many were there maybe 80 in the quilt and clearly there were many more? 80 patches and that thankfully, that task didn't talk to me, but that was Jenny and also I think she had curators from the V and a so they were looking at it as a decent, which is what it is. Piece of social history. Capturing all that story and all the aspirations to come as well. Robert citer from BBC history.

"geralt" Discussed on ACG - The Best Gaming Podcast
"But the time skips were really confusing because obviously geralt doesn't change over time, right? So he could be in the scene, and then the next scene could be like years after, and you have no idea. So the pain pill. Sorry, I have a migraine so bad. It came out in a lot of no worries, 45 seconds. It's so bad that I want to make sure people don't think I'm not paying attention. I am. I got to get a pain pill. Something's going on. So. I can't remember what I was going to say. Sorry. I'm going to get a pain. Let me tell you this as well. Regarding the action, there's a different feel to the action scenes in season two. Like is it that more bombastic or less bombastic? It is, it is more bombastic. So season one was a bit more uncut a bit more like down to the ground or grounded action scenes. With how the movement is and it seemed like less cuts and less like editing. So whereas season two sorry, just finished. It's a bit more like if you've seen any Guy Ritchie movies where they have like a rhythm to the action and they kind of like speed things up and slow things down sometimes. And there's a lot more sign magic from geralt and stuff like that. So yeah. Oh, interesting. So he's doing actual more spells. Thank you very much. Yes. Remember in number one, the show started with the really dark battle against the spider. You guys remember that? Right. Yeah. Would you say that that's more what we're getting in season two then? Is like more bombastic in that way? Like are we seeing creatures as well? Or is it just people again? There are more creatures. That makes that's exciting. That's exciting. That makes me. It is good. I'm not saying it's bad, but I know you're not. It's just a different flavor. It's a bit different flavor. Yeah. Okay. That my screen is frozen completely saying that we're oh. We are streaming still, but so I can't see questions and stuff right now. I'm going to reboot it. But not reboot. Reset the browser. Yeah, I wanted to see it. So the first show, first episode of the first season was really dark. That spider thing he fought and I remember going like, I can't see shit. Never popped up again in the rest of the show. As in, I didn't have those issues. But I had always been like, man, I wanted him to seem I wanted him to fight more monsters. Like it didn't seem like he was The Witcher. It seemed like he was the pitcher. He's just walking around everything. Because there were like two big monster fights..

"The most amount of keely memes that'd be okay. Yeah. That might be the NFTO, bye. That might be it. I'm like, that'd be the one I crossed over to the target for the world. I just need to own this fucking receipt for this jpeg. Exactly. Keely dream of. However, that would be happy to right click and savior NFT and steal it from you. And claim your power along the way. CD project red. Had their earnings call as these public companies do. I forgot that all that happened. They are some good and bad here. They tightened up the window for the upcoming releases of Cyberpunk 2077, the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions. They say that they are on track for Q one and that they are ramping up a team with expansion on the expansion for that game. So I guess they feel like they've gotten it to a place where it functions as intended, and they're going to get back to work on expanding it. Let's see here. The Witcher is also going to get a similar update between April and June of next year where it will, let's see here. According to this polygon story, visual upgrades and new items inspired by the Netflix series based on The Witcher books. That's a weird loop of like, okay, so the games are based on the books, but then this is based on the Netflix series, which is not based on the game because it too is based on the books, but we're going to put the items from that thing into this thing because it's all technically the same thing. What if they put in a Henry Cavill's skin? What if? They're just gonna put that song in it, right? Yeah. Is that. Is that the only thing from The Witcher theories that stuck around was the only thing that can think of. So yeah, they're looking to add multiplayer to its franchises, which they've more or less said as much in the past, but they haven't really what do you do in a multiplayer Witcher? Thousands of little geralt's running around? What if there were two witchers? That's four sources. A lot of swords. That's a better idea than I was thinking. Let's see. They have not said which the cyberpunk multiplayer thing was the stuff they were talking about the most. And then when cyberpunk burned to the ground, they were like, we're not going to talk about that anymore. So they haven't really committed to which franchise will get multiplayer first and all the other stuff. But they do want to put it in cyberpunk as well as whether that's putting it into the game itself or a separate product, I think, is probably I bet that has been on the table at some point. I think it was originally a separate mode that they then shelved sometime in. Last year, I did before was it? Yeah. I'm sorry. Was this supposed to be like co op campaign or competitive? Multiplayer? I think there was no details about it, as far as I remember, there was no details about it, but it was going to be a separate mode that came out after the launch of the main game. Yeah. But then all that got put on hold. Right. And so now they're kind of like turning those switches back on. Like, hey, we've kind of gotten things a little bit back on track here. So let's get back into the things we had planned to do 9 apologies ago. Gag, good old games is losing some money. And so they stopped calling it a good old games as they got away from focusing it on good old games. It was originally yeah, here's a storefront for DRM free versions of old games, often packaged up in dosbox and they do the work to make sure that that's all configured properly as well as their own games and the quote they've given here. As gog has expanded to kind of try to be more of a storefront, they're backing off of that. First and foremost, we've decided that dog should focus more on its core business activity, which means offering a hand picked selection of games with its unique DRM free philosophy in line with this approach there will be changes in the team's structure. Gog has been, has anyone messed with the Gaga galaxy client? Yep, it's really good. It's like a lot. It did not inspire me to shop at gog and I turned off the don't show me the dog store. I think the only thing I own there of note is cyberpunk because when they sent that out for review, they sent God codes. And but the idea if you haven't seen it is that you log into a lot of different services. They have official integrations as well as third party integrations that just live on GitHub that they use to scrape your PSN profile and Friends list and all this other stuff to pull in whatever data they can to provide this kind of unified client. Obviously, you're not going to launch your PlayStation games from this PC desktop client. But it shows everything you own, how much you've played it, it kind of unifies. It is in a lot of ways, what the giant bomb achievement tracking that we were doing. Ten years ago was kind of originally meant to be. It was that idea of like, hey, a lot of these games are on multiple platforms, but have the same achievements and trophies across steam and PSN and Xbox. But if you want to see if you have friends that are playing on a different platform, we want to be able to show you how far they have progressed. And she had to have a feed like that. It's a neat, it's neat. The Gaga galaxy stuff. But gaucher's losing money and I have to imagine that that Gaussian client is maybe not going to see a ton of updates past that. I don't even know if it ever technically left beta. It was one of those things that they were always like testing testing, but anyone could get into it. As a result of all this, the stock price is down about 8 and a half percent. With Bloomberg Canada saying that analysts see even more downside for the studio, they've had to put the cyberpunk on sale to try to get some get some brand affinity back for it. Maybe you're a little bit earlier than they anticipated and some of the other stuff. So they're kind of feeling the effects of that a massive reputation hit, which I feel is fairly justified here considering the path of that game has been on. And so that will that will change, yeah, that's probably why you're seeing some of these dog changes and some of this other stuff, because there's a bit of just like, okay, we've got a we are now a public company and we've got to write this ship. The GOG stuff is really interesting. We did a dock on it a couple of years ago. I can see just the amount of people they had and what they were doing. Huge amount of biz dev people, lots of going out and finding trying to do all the legal work, the rats nests of legal problems they have with certain games. To try and get them on the system. I mean, they're not the only people doing this, but they were. And they've sort of done a lot of them. I also feel like I wonder at a certain stage, is there a smaller pool of ones to guess? There will always be the no one lives forever and there's a couple of games out there that are just wrapped up insane licensing or rights issues that people just can't seem to untangle. I know the night dive as well. The system shock remake folks up and up in Portland. They've done a bunch of that stuff as well. But I wanted to just lesser that maybe around, you know, the big ones and bring gotten? Yeah, they've either been gotten or you have studios that whoever does on the rights they're like, okay, well, we want to do a remake of this. We want to try to sell this for stubs the zombie came out on modern consoles this year. Like, what? Like, but everyone, everyone is trying to monetize their back catalog in different ways, which probably leaves a.
"geralt" Discussed on Astronomy Cast
"Support themselves is not planets. But you said a Jupyter like a gas giant that is ten times more massive than the earth. Could you have one that is two times more massive than the earth? 5 times? If you have a ball of hydrogen, you can turn it into a gas giant. If you have a disk of hydrogen and it's around a dwarf star, can you get a fairly low mass small gas planet? Yes, I don't know the lower limit on it. It would probably be order of multiples of an earth mass and the reason that I say that is because you need the rocks to come together to be able to draw all the hydrogen in because it doesn't take a whole lot of energy to send a hydrogen particle off it escape velocities. So you're going to have to build up all of the rocks and heavier materials first to hold onto the lighter mass atoms. So it's like a certain recipe that has to come together to get to get what you need, still. It's pretty pretty fascinating. Well, super cool, Pamela. We'll talk about gas trans again in another 600 episodes or so. That sounds good Fraser. I will be here for that. And hopefully we'll have more spacecraft with us. Yeah, we will. We will. All right.
