The Last Serve with Courtney
"Enjoyed episode gray story very relatable unless you to it. Though. The question that everyone that comes on as when you're younger than athlete would like bigger to the goals you underachieve. Oh God as an athlete I actually wanted to be my first athletic dream wants to be a professional basketball player. So I guess that's where it started is that was the first sport that I really played. And it that quickly died. After a while was like, you know what now got Bergdahl kind of fascinated found volleyball luckily. Yeah. I had a poster of Lisa Leslie on the back of my bedroom door. Measure myself against our. Be, like that one day. Lead the. Though at least leisurely. So when you kind of said, we're doing basketball. Then how do you kind of land up on wall kind of thing that was? A good place for you. Volleyball, why is the last sport that I tried like the last one I picked up and I've been I was always playing. As a kid I was just always I, think of a lot of athletes say that like I just play it every and volleyball was lost when I picked up his all my friends are playing it and I went to a camp at our high school, Our Future High School put on with them and I. I. Hated it. Just because was bad and I hate big batted things it just makes me so angry. And I just kind of stuck with it because all of my best friends were playing and it was really fun to play with them. So it was like I'm sure I'll like it. You know when I start getting better and I like hanging out then so stick with it and just did a job middle school along with everything else that I could play and I, just live London it gets so much fun. And when you start to get a little bit good, it was just I think we've no others or I didn't feel anger sport but I played before when I started to get good I just wanted to keep getting better on I. Definitely felt that was all. Yeah and then just think what I was in high school. Coaches. OCD recruiting letters, and found out. That was the thing I could do you know playing college now? It's like, okay I guess I'll do that. And Going with that same process. Started, getting good. How did you? Become good with was whether jet practice or you redoing the outside of just the usual everyday stuff. A little bit of both I mean I think it really helps like I always tell players that I'm coaching. I was not good until I was like it senior sixteen like even I started playing when I was twelve terrible until I was almost in high school. I think a lot of it when I turned I was a freshman in high school. So it's like fourteen fifteen years old in a big game changer was that summer I played a lot of volleyball because then middle school I played every sport. So I didn't really dedicate that much time I played club but. You know I'm not very, very good club not for a very good team. The practice wasn't very intense, and then that summer before freshman year when I decided I wanted to play in high school. I switched clubs went to NATO's Houston. Was a better had had give reputation at the time played was in the gym at all the open gyms, all the clinics they had. At least twice a week ever all summer long and I grew like four inches in like almost like less than six months I grew so much and. I. Think the biggest improvement was. By jump, I could actually jump after all of that playing at all jumping off the heading and I could finally. Serve consistently and served. Well, I was stronger I was in middle school I would I hated surfing. I just got so mad because I was so inconsistent I would actually. Do. Push ups in my room every night when I was like thirteen and fourteen seventh and eighth grade I served improve. But then I was in the gym so much that summer after middle school and it made such a big difference. I think here in your journey, just how you were determined to get better you like I'm not gonNA. Anyone be. Yeah and just be like I'm not going to be bad at this. This is ridiculous like I'm not I'm not going to be done at this. This is stupid. Like

Working in Unison with Justin Ricks Pro Basketball Agent & Manager
"Of course The number one go every athlete won't make to them You know as a basketball that was in third grade. I was by far was not the best on the team. Probably wasn't the best or any team played on. You know what I mean and But I was a student. I just love being around the game. I loved managed Love getting practice is just love being around. And now when I got to high school I started to become realistic. You're not going to get a college scholarship. You know what I'm saying. Like all these coaches. They come in to see a best friends. So I'll start thinking about different ways. I could just really be steroid again. And at that point like I remember. I was getting out of practice one day and I coached crabby practice. You know just like just going through the motions in our coaches like man. I Dunno taking taking this for granted because a Lotta. This is GONNA BE. Our last ever played basketball. A lot of not getting. The kind of scholarships may not make today. Just Kinda hit me at that point. I was like man. I meeting B. as in our you know and I remember as a to everybody who will listen I will tell Mama be as our GM. And I really believe that you know what I mean and so you know what I did was I want the grammar state and Um when I was there I still try to stay around the game and I was still talking to a lot of my friends. That was playing basketball in the COLLAGEN. You know Still discount trying to study the business and it ended up animated JOB WITH THE MEMPHIS. Grizzlies and I felt like that was like probably the best thing to happen. Because the unique thing about working with the grizzlies everything was in one location unlike most NBA teams. You know the basketball operations the business operations and the practice facility was pretty much in the same building so any given time you know you can see. Lying highlands are the GM and a break role in automates alike and And in my manager at the time was over the says marketing department like every month he will have like maybe a player like Scout. Or sometimes I know how does come and speak to the market style and like I took that to my advantage. I was like all right. He came and spoke to us. I entered it was myself so so when I see him doing gang there when I see him around a bit. I'm a speech on period. Side is like Sede see certain people and I speak to him and I did ask them questions and I remember my best friend wind up becoming my first client when I became. Aj here the free agent workout with the Grizzlies. Coming up and I'm by went to GM adjutant seducing myself like what was going on Monday just agent one day a private looking like man the head of the kid talking to me but as it you know what I mean but I'm looking like man is only thirty GM's so I know you've probably talked to a lot of ages in his lines also. I'M GONNA ask questions because I realize man of you ask questions you ask the right question you'll get passes you know what I mean and So you know after I left the Grizzlies Man I at that certified in my mind. My best friend became my first client and First Year in Atman. I just learned as much as I came in our prime only to class at the time. I really wasn't trying to decide. A Lotta guys always always kinda put it in in in eternal record label. You don't want to a lot of artists and you can't have none of them released the album so what I edited backers in what I mean by that is like I would go to Portsmouth some of the Argos many places as possible late Dan. Facebook and just get connected with coaches general managers. You know what I mean so whenever I do start to sign players our have jobs to give to help them build their careers you know so no man. That's good 'cause we kind of paint a picture of like of the progression and so kind of going back to like the early years when you realize I am not going to be the guy that you know that the gift that offers may be go for you when you're trying to figure out this agent thing right you told everybody about it right like NAM and you can do it right but from an income. Make it out there right right right how. You're honestly like a because I I heard that a lot. You know what I mean like man. You know we come from we come from. It's no agents Man Like what are you talking about the first player dead from my era that made it to the NBA was promised up But before my area you know we always had basketball but no benjamin bed rustles actually from Mar Louisiana before he migrated to Oakland so we always had like athletes but on a business on business. We never had nobody. So you know you're right. When I used to tell people. I'm going to be as people really look like Trip like houses ablaze. And but I really like I could do anything. I really felt room featherweight like right now saying when they say you know you can do all things through Christ. I really believed that scripture like do whatever you know what I mean and it may be a journey. I may not get another night. But I'm always played along dame everything I do you know so I think one of the biggest things that just kept me going my confidence. You know what I'm saying like Interviews UNITES TO. Listen to interviews. Ai Is listened interviews. Kobe is listened interviews. That Wayne like three people that really influenced me. Listen to interviews masterpiece. Listen TO INTERVIEWS MALCOLM X. All five hundred people by Marlee like all. These people got one thing in common. They believe we felt. Like I was GonNa be the best in over the the way. I'm going to be the greatest rapper loud masterpiece like be the best businessman in a slight. Nobody penetrate their belief. Just take on that mentality. You know what I mean like men listens like if this what you WANNA do. You GotTa stand firm on a really gotta dedicate everything to a because if I say on the aging without putting the actions behind it denounces another personality with pipedream like I started doing was at the time I had a full time job. You know what I mean so I get off work. I used to dedicate like an hour and a half to study. Looking at contracts is all public domain. Certain things are public domain. You know what I mean this asking questions again like I say when I worked for the grizzlies you know if I bump into one of the SCOUSE. I'm asking him. How do you evaluate talent? You know what I mean. What what goes into making decision goes into roster changes like these people used to you know. I'm sorry I sucked because you know what I'm saying but they would give me a free day and But the question is short minutes obtains is having a confidence that belief in myself
Batouly Camara: Awakening in purpose
"A young athlete. I would say the bars set pretty high. The first time I ever saw women play Played on old boy. Seen when I start playing basketball I was introduced to the game by woman but the first game I ever went to the WNBA GAME. Sounds like me so it was like Here in our from probably one hour thing and all girl play Basketball Naseen. Hulo Professional League ignorance is bliss so I would say it was definitely suggests reach my potential. I don't think I ever really said I saw WNBA. I loved it but I think it was to work to kind of reach mile potential with my biggest goal. At that moment I started ages twelve to two things on that day for you said the retail potential. You know so at eight to twelve. What did that look real? Potential potential. Just Matt being at the peak of of my career because when I went to the game what I loved the most was the diversity I saw a core and how every body and just being a young inquisitive curious kid I went from seeing Kia Vaughn. Who's like six five to like? Leilani Melanie Mitchell. Like you know five six. And she's fine with two nasty and I'm like they're not the same but they've all kind of reached their potential in some way. Some regard are now that I'm older Still playing still working on their craft. But at that moment it wasn't about comparison is about personal growth. But once you reach your personal growth you can then get to. The highest level is a lot so when you have the game like I want to be on that day I wanNA share the court in. I WANNA know papillon whatever may be. How do you think I'm GonNa go achieving that it was just this sense of actually had a podcast with my coach? Taught me how to make like a a layup as you say you just have this kind of hunger about you and again. It was just as curiosity. I didn't know I didn't know any of those players didn't know anyone at that level but I just remember how much it it bugged me inside. We know nights where would turn. And I didn't know who go to our coaches at that point in a you in Eugene was so far away but they really allow me to focus on day to day. So that's why did I focused on the day to day and just really just trying to put in as much work as I can control. Though I've learned from like the guests every on that lobby will have today on idolized. You know that might become emulate their game. You Watch like I WANNA learn their moves. It was definitely I say growing up Having older brother the account and learn about the men's game so my brother loved Hakeem he always talked about him. Entering accused dream. You know growing up in a Muslim household. You know the keenest fate than what he stood for. That was initial draw but as I became more fan in sunny if it works that he accused Work in all the grades he's taught than us aren't look more about women in my more and I just remember watching 'em in the final four in little wayne was on the sideline and it was kind of this weird thing where I just loved jives and she just seemed like she's having so much fun with it. Saudi young age I WANNA. I played really admired economy. Idle and at. What point did you think like you? I'm pretty good at this ball like I can. May I have a channel teaching my potential never after like it's definitely a journey but I would say probably junior year high school? I remember walking into? We have open gym. You know humor coaches come in at that point. I was out of okay you know. Tunisia was okay. And we walk in and we have over. I want to say twenty five college coaches and these are just hide the coaches so he has stanford that day Yukon. We had Kentucky all in this building and it was about five of my teammates. Three of us. Who ARE REALLY GOING TAB? The one and so it was kind of surreal feeling as a young kid but one that didn't take lightly. I was nervous. You know I wanted to be good. You WanNa why to perform It was kind of in that moment whereas like all Kayla avalon way to go. But we're taking baby steps now to what kept you grounded Theme like Kentucky is the part that really ongoing even kill. What kind of help you day. You know that it always more than technology do more. I would definitely say the people. I was surrounded by they even from a young age like for example when I was fourteen. That's what I went to Blair Academy and that's Kinda where really developed my skills who I am was a person and one of my teammates. Her name is bridget and a net. Infamy this core group seniors who just had great might. You were now walking into the gym and for me. I was a freshman. I was good. You not do it I wanNA and they shut it down. Bridget graduated top of her class at West. Point so talk about someone with discipline and so she was just very adamant about the process and they will get every day for six. Am workouts on. Like talk to me if I did it and say you know you need to be there so constantly always telling me you've never arrived at his journey and my mentor. The same way. Schnee saying you know you've never robbed it journey in their quick to say you know this which means getting better on With celebrate knee. But also telling me what I need to do better. You never arrive there. The journey That deep at the can take value from two. You know just that you can always return another level. He Never GonNa GonNa read them mountaintop. Yes absolutely yeah so when Tom Day. Chew that college could you? You know you were a one Top Not by one or two on the team so they wanna give you ever that. That's really what you're like number two I in the shooting school you know. How did you go about that first? Half that it was an interesting process and to me. The recruiting process started off trae stressful. You have all these great schools you know. I used to just pray guy. God is Doin' in options. The options were there so I was super fortunate to have that because I would live in. I was in the same room with somebody who didn't even know if they're going to get a scholarship. So that can be Ground level headed but I did enjoy the process because I was thankful for thankful to get to know coaches so pretty early on. I create a pros and cons. I created questions. I asked each coach. How far wants to go? If distance even mattered if conference matter at the time. That didn't matter to me. And so from the merits my top five. It's my top two which was Kentucky and Uconn and I remember taking a visit early in Yukon and then taking a visit to Kentucky about may NFL. At that time I was exhausted. I my one official visit but I was exhausted with the process house. Like I'm completely over. This and I may great connections with Girls Kentucky with the coaching staff Mafia comfortable. So at that point and not sadness so that way you kind of felt the exact same way you can. I guess it was there in front of me if fell right at the moment and so cast okay. I'm going into my senior year of a you and I didn't want to have to choose a wine to be solidified before seeing junior year because at the time that's when they first changed a rule so I wanted to be committed by senior year I was died. I didn't want the pressure anymore and committed end so that was an interesting process so again now the pros and cons list talking to coaches distance cannot into consideration. The one came down that pros and cons What kind of look like for me. Family is everything and people say that lightly but I wanted somewhere where I was going to be there for four years and my biggest fear was transferred out one life. I wanted to make the perfect decision. I wanted a place where players came back growing up A lot of places and I've learned I've learned now what it really means to come back in Soviet with access comeback. Why they don't why they do. Because you can be on the team with twelve people in. Everyone has drastically different experiences. But I really wanted somewhere where a majority of the players came back. I wanted a place with rich history. Not just a yeah. We're GONNA Iran this conference but rich like Deep Kentucky history. You know I love that you call history at WanNa tradition. I felt that was important. Especially after coming for Blair Academy being able to see a loan to connect with them. I love that that was huge to me player development players who play like me who look like me And how they developed over time and again just that relationship piece so two that to me again with academics being able to holistic route players. Who actually talked about being a person versus those who actually developed in the curriculum. They had in place. So were you reading a book to your team. And where were they nurturing their growth from outside of school so different things than to Alone could it wasn't just people based on the name of the school. It was like there was office behind how you're going to fit in how you going to be able to enjoy love the that freshman year at. Kentucky. How'd you describe that? Chapter title that chapter. It is so funny. You know the theme for that summer I remember our first conditional gap the code saying arson conditioning coach. He said we're GONNA name this summer. It's GonNa be expect. The unexpected now is the name of the summer so you know it was crazy. Be expect the unexpected it. So that's exactly what I was saying encompassing of my time I could learn so much as a great people. A tough conference plane. Sec everyday eating there is nothing like your freshman year. There is nothing like I'm always in pain. There's nothing you can get shake off the grind on schoolwork at feels never ending the season that feels never ending but also opening up in exploring new party. Yourself INAU May. I didn't know I had an emmy. I knocking show up in that moment. So deftly wasn't adjustment but it was incredibly awakening experience the same beliefs
"gilliam" Discussed on 9INE POINT Started With A Dream Podcast w/ Jacolby Gilliam
"What was it that made me even WanNa keep going in basketball is that. I'm just a competitive individual once I have target and I have something to compete against then I can get locked in. I don't have a problem saying discipline when I know what I'm going for. I don't care if it's GonNa take me years to achieve it as long as I know what the target is and I know what I'm going after I can keep going for it. So the motivation to keep showing up and doing the work. If you WANNA call it. Motivation disciplined was fueled by the fact that I have reasons the fact that I had a why and I knew what I wanted to achieve. There was no way that I was GonNa let that college coach. Who Kick me off on my parents pointing out the reality of my life. Nobody that I was going to bet those win over my internal desires so that was really defamed for me is that I don't care how long it takes or what I gotta do. I'm going to make this happen because these reasons right here on my mind is no way. I'm GonNa let these reasons in NBA but look at me and say we were right. And you weren't man. I can make that much 'cause like my first near outcome from the team because I got hurt. Walk on and apple my hamster for earth. Meet Anna from me code. Cut Me the first time I like. Someone really told me that. I wasn't good enough to be an athlete in that. Like death. Only lit a fire Billy ego shocked could like Dang on it. Good about thought I would or he didn't evaluation meet at Haffey that he valued every other athlete the team and our like man so I definitely related at that walk through and you notice that a lot of people hesitate to talk about their ego like you just mentioned people. Don't want to mention that. You know it hurt my ego that the coach cut me or something like what you said. You hurt. My Ego. Did at the cows coach cut me and it hurt my ego at my parents. Were like you WanNa play pro basketball like they looking like crazy for even saying that and I'm thinking I'm ready to play and they're looking at me like I'm crazy. That touches ego in a lot of people. They don't want to admit their ego is bothered by something that somebody else said or something someone else did or just something that occurred but the fact is to be strongly confident or to achieve anything significant in life. You need to be in touch with your ego. You need sendo that this really matters to me that it matters a whole lot to me internally to achieve this or to win this or to beat this person or whatever it is because that's where we get our sense of self worth is from our ego but so many people these days because we've been a socialized to be humble or to extol humility over everything that nobody wants to mention that their egos involved in any of their actions or any of their decisions but ego absolutely is involved. United. Szeswith that EGO. You probably will not achieve much man. I wish I heard you talk when I was like in school like in high school in college could always one of those people that they humble you know that what the world wants me to do but really bothered out like Kinda k then. Kyle's like you know like you like you want a branch. I'll be like Nah Humble can't be overconfident. Nothing death down officer if you will get people who achieve at really high levels in life. They're all very in touch with us. You look at someone like in. We're talking basketball talking about like Kobe. Bryant a lot of people who would Kobe right. The people who hated Kobe Bryant would always say. Well he's egotistical. He thinks he's all that he's cocky and I was like well hell yeah. He is so Goods he's good at what he does. He's earned the right to be but at the same time you're not gonna get to a high level of anything you do if you're not deeply in touch with that ego or even people talk about someone like Donald Trump now whether you agree with them disagree with them. Love them or hate them. Everyone can agree to disguise deeply in touch with his ego. You know he was putting his name on everything before he got into politics and that's why everybody knows his name so again whether you like him or not. He's deeply touched with his ego. And he's unapologetic about it. Or you look at Michael Jordan or a lot of our entertainers. A Kim Kardashian Kanye West Jay Z. These people are deeply in touch with their egos and the onset. You got a song called Ego. People don't have a problem talking about it when they get to these high levels of achievement but a lot of people know they talk down on people for being egotistical or narcissistic or hockey or arrogant. These words that we use to make people look bad but the fact of the matter is everyone who achieves at a high level was deeply and tell us what the eagles some people are. Just open about it. And they don't care that you noted there egotistical. Some are better at hiding it but everyone who achieves at. Honda was deeply suspect. There you go and they don't have a problem with mine going to go do you want. That's what I say. Sometimes our of any. I don't WanNa do that. I WON'T BE A D. One athlete ought to go home and Oklahoma though though that you said that off a better about myself now so now your you got getting more of that. That target didn't This Day are overstated where we're going before that tweeting. Mikhail gotta invite to a camp. You didn't go the first year he went with the next year. Look how did that go for you? What can't win great from me but I. I got out of College. My teammates I got invited to. I didn't get invited but my teammates had suggested that I go anyway because you could go without the invite but I just knew about it. They were saying you know. If you just pay the money would took my let me come. But I just didn't go under ready but that next year I was ready. I had been working out. I was working at bally. Total fitness had access to a gym. I went and got a another membership to. La Fitness. Bally didn't have a basketball court. They had a weight room so I was in game shape. I was ready to go and I play really well at that. Can't you know my fingers an athlete as a player? My main skill at that time was our really athletic soccer player above Ram. And get dunks and stuff like that so I had the most dunks of anybody at that camp and people knew hours because I mean you know to call me in basketball. If you don't get a game everybody remembers you even two points. They'd be only points that one dumb but everybody remembers it so I had a few. Don't got me notice and wrote up scouting report about me. Scouting report was good again. Me The footage of the Games that I played in and then just took that scouting report was a link online. And I took that footage and I just started sending it around to agents and a final sean agent who was interested in representing me. And that's how I ended up getting a deal starting my Karan Lithuania when they offer Cain with a thin of a mated worked over. Yeah Hell Yeah. It was a sensitive made it because all that time from I mean I got kicked off my college team in that was like January of two thousand three so that the whole rest of that whole spring semester junior year than two semesters my senior year then a whole year after college. So that's two and a half years from when I have been on a proper basketball team until I signed that contract because at the time I remember I was working bally. Total fitness in town called Willow Grove us out of Philadelphia and my agent. We text each other but he would just text me whenever something was going on so he text me. One day I was at work. I remember getting a tax. You've got a team in Lithuania. Who's interested? He gave me some blow. Bit of details about what? The conversation was and needs. Is Ashley No? Are you available? You Open it this you want this now so yeah definitely. I wanted but he was like are going back and forth with them. You know get back to you as we talk. And no with Lena's like seven eight hours in advance of the eastern side of the United States. So he would send an email but not get pots next day. They're going back so it took about three days but he texted me every day. Let me know how to conversations are going and this and that so I'm excited but I'm just waiting with baited breath I didn't say anything to anybody unintelligent what was done on. I just stay calm because I needed to know that it was actually done and then on needed the first of all I needed agent say it was done second on needed. The paperwork signed thirds. I needed to actually have flight. I need to actually be on the plane and hear them closed doors and seek plane. Pull off from the runway where people get on a plane. I needed that happened before I could say. This is officially real. So it wasn't until then. When I was on a plane I remember with the Stanza Airlines fine from Chevy to Frankfurt Densu with Romania. That's when I knew it was real when I was actually on that plane so yes. It absolutely was a combination of excitement. Happiness vindication at thanks. I'm still needed to go over there in prey on the court. 'cause if you don't play well you might not be too. Yeah but that's so cool. How you went from being the king on that that I want to be known now might get no-one overseas in net dope that you've actually You're like Yo I made it. I think sometimes we get so caught in adding the next goal next goal that we don't realize that we just accomplish something that that big. Yes definitely true. We don't go back once you got on that plane. You know taken off and landed overseas. How that oversee journey for you. Now that you're actually now alleged overseas basketball player. It was very surreal. Because at this time I was twenty three years old. I barely been out of Philadelphia tonight point in my life. I mean I'm from Philly born raised in Philly. I've been to New York a time or two. I meant to Penn State. School was like four hours away from Philly. I've been survey once that was it. I haven't been anywhere else outside of Philadelphia ever like so now on a plane. I'm in Lithuania country. Dead Out couldn't have even pointed out on a map before I went over there so I get there and there were actually two other Americans there because there were two teams in the city since one of the Gaza's on another team one of the guys of my team and then it was a guy who was actually from Africa but he he spoke perfect English he was Brown skinned guy. So the four of us are walking around Lithuania for Brat guys. I'm six four hours. Short is one six. Seven seven feet News like six five so we're walking around with Wayne. They're all older than me. They all had pro experience that I didn't have so they were all telling me like man. You just starting to career this go for you lease a good opportunity in all that and we're just walking around where food were walking through the center of the town and people are stopping look in at US and wanted to. Gaza's actually really well known so he's signing autographs taking pictures it was just really really surreal that. I just kept thinking to myself while I'm in with weightier right now as a professional basketball player. I couldn't really even believe for at some points that I was. Actually they're actually doing that so it was an amazing films a feeling that that's a moment that you can't get back. You can't recreate that kind of moment. The food's gone from How food had you just. The food is fine because what I would do was. I didn't cook so I would go to in the town square restaurants stuff like that. In hardly a lot of people didn't speak English I would just go and I would ask the waitress. I will try to many of the waitresses will speak English so I would try to ask them what they had and they could understand within two seconds. They knew that speak with Wanian so they would try to help by pointing out something that they figured our no cheeseburger or some spaghetti or something like that. So that's a pretty much ate the same meals over and over again. The whole time that I was there must have found a meal like I was just order. Same thing every time. Over and over dicky food's great. That's what's up so overseas became the journey for you in now. Was that point your life where they would like all right achieve this dream. How long would you over the journey of the year in two thousand fifteen so I started two thousand five and then in two thousand fifteen but in between there there were years where I didn't even have a contract or tons of the season with starting but I didn't have a deal so at one point probably about four years my career? That's when I said to myself. Hey I need to figure out how we can get some control over my destiny over my life because if I keep on this this up and down have not have a job. I don't really have any control over my finances or my career over where I'm physically living. Nothing so that's when I started focusing a little bit more on had a website at that time. I had a few videos on Youtube that I will post radically. That's when I started focusing on doing that. More and more disciplined what and more strategic way more consistently and that's what really led to me becoming more known it wasn't actually planned overseas the got it was actually the Internet. So it's funny that it just worked out that way in when you are doing the video content. When do you see as the Was the goal with that will just be known with like they ought to become a paid youtuber. Like what would your target for. That was a good question. I didn't have a goal when I first started doing it right. So I'll give you the timelines. So two thousand five star playing ball overseas in two thousand six put. My first video on Youtube was actually the footage from that exposure..
"gilliam" Discussed on Think Again
"Oh look there's a bunch of water down there and that became the thing that which they beat me up weekly after that Oh Gilliam saw the Atlanta just a bunch of water and so you get kind of trapped in what other people think you are right and you become it and it's easy to play along and let them think I'm not stupid but I'm not as smart as them and they feel better about reporting and then also the position occupied as a as the visual guy. Making the cartoon transitions in that connects with something else. You say in the book you talk about not wanting to get to successful that sometimes it's actually helpful to go to have your your career go in waves because you want the freedom to be left alone to do what you. WanNa do able to hold on. One day I might be really successful. It's hope is main some hope because if you're suddenly successful and everything is going well because I'm so reactive to things what it's about I see somebody light I react to it. I actually frightened about liking things. Too much protect myself. I don't WanNa love things too much. I want to keep a safe distance because you strike me as someone who does have that tendency you probably do limit coward because I love so much but the fall is too great. I WANNA keep the fall a shorter distance and so if I aspired too high or too much the all the pain of the fall is what. I'm thinking about all these. There's a documentary coming out about a follow up to las. La Mancha is called he dreams of giants is about the making final making tea Hodie. I've got very mixed feelings about it because it's really about one guy t Gilliam and his suffering and the pain and I don't want I don't like that. I don't complain about the pain. I think that's part of the deal. I think the deal is. It's hard work. It's going to be rough and try to keep things funny and laugh about us away protecting myself as well as making a bearable for other people. This documentary is just an angsty or something. If I'M GONNA be job I'm going to try to suffer more quietly. That's all and it's really bothers me. The title is called the giants but I told him there's a better title he dreams of giants but works with doors. And that's a good title. They're not going to do it because they are so determined to show the pain of my art on the way over here. Another thing I thought about was this. Yates poem that I love. Do you know this poem. It's called the the fascination of what's difficult and he has this it was when he was running the Abbey Theatre in Dublin and it was when he was like ready to give it up and go right a tree which is easier and there's been where he goes he goes my curse on plays that have to be set up a thousand ways the days war with every nave and dolt theater business management of men. I swear before the Don comes comes around again find the stable and pull out the bolt awfully got it. I thought of you and I thought I had well Gilliam staying in it. It would have been easier to draw cartoons maybe as a cartoonish. It was simple piece of paper and pen. I can do it all but once I got into making movies. I love working with other people. Despite the fact there's many navies yet and all sorts but I love it. I love being part of the collaboration of the whole thing. I'm the guy that gets the credit or the blame. That's my job. I think it's really but the reality is it's working with a lot of people. I'm the guy that gets to choose who I work with. Very lucky in that sense. And then if I've got the right gang it's our Bovi I use my daughter not holly my NBA. Who is one of the producers on the final Quixote sheers to fall in that Hollywood trapped of my movie? They people say no matter what they had to do with it and is it no. It's our movie it's always hours but I'll take the blame. Did you always think that way of yourself as kind of like the ringleader of this thing or was there a time when you were more sort of the Otr and then had to emerge into into that more collaborative spirit? I've always worked on my own most of the time and then getting into that point sully were part of a gang but I was the unique one in that one. Because what I did wasn't the CY had more freedom naked. But then when we started working on the Holy Grail and Terry Jones and I were co directing it. That was the moment I realize. Okay I know how to do this stuff and these guys need a lot of persuading and I don't have the patience to keep persuading for each shot. Why we're doing that and that's why didn't direct again. It was easier to get professional actors. Who Thought I knew what I was doing and they did it right. They were to use to being. You're you're seeing level colleagues. Get that was it. We were able all of us but basically in reality. When you make a film you have equality but then you start work with other people who come up with some ideas. I the thing in quixote has been this long journey because at each point new people came on board with different ideas and most of it really came to focus when we actually started finding making the movie we had chosen the people and now we're doing it and now reality is there. You can't escape it. We shot almost the entire film was on location and most it was outside with no weather cover and for once. Nature was nice pleasant but nature nevertheless because we really were very lucky we were so exposed. We got through it but nature does have a great sense of humor. 'cause the ones seen which was our big sane. We've got three hundred fifty extras all of these outrageous costumes. Were burning this thirty meter. High Statue very complicated very dangerous. Everything that was the night rain. Come down that would. Is that the rain. That's in the movie such real because we were prepared because we wrote in real rain or fakery movie rain and really rain and we couldn't shoot stop and I thought okay data. You've got a good sense of your your really suck now. Let's get to the second part of the show. Big thing has video interviews. Our producers have picked quips. I haven't seen it Terry. Hasn't seen it. We're GONNA watch them together and see where we go with the conversation. This is much better than doing normally.
Austin Bogina Relentless Forward Progress
"Quick night that Wanna come with a wanted when you're younger than athlete will. When you're being a dream the goal to achieve really being a small town southeast Kansas Farm Kid. We played everything. We were multi. Sport athletes. Really. There was no specialization in any one thing and so you know. I've always been a baseball player in really was trying to follow in that. At running mom was a collegiate runner. An so running. It was always kind of air but baseball is came much more easy for me. Running Zoe's been really tough definitely not very naturally talented. And that's been very frustrating for me. His remind tire time man. I'm still at it and so really. I think that was one of the big things was when going through high school and at a kind of a low level class to wear. The competition wasn't use out of this world like some of the other states and so really a kind of introduced me to a lot of success pretty early on and religious kind of made me hungry for more and I was like I had something to prove and in running you know that was the one thing I felt like I had control love. I felt like I didn't have to depend on your four. The guys on the quarter now heir to the ball players on the field and I liked that because I felt like I was working so hard frustrated with some of the other sports that were running came along and be a distance runner. I was able to take that into my own hands and really start figuring out what it was gonna take for me and my strengths. How I was going to succeed at this or and I knew it was going to be a lot harder for me than it is for a lot of others in and so. I think you're right from the leaving high school going into college. I was so hungry I had no idea what was in store for me. I the school I ended up signing with his State University down in Pittsburg. Kansas and I remember walking into coaches office as he's recruited me told him I was like you're going to be your. I Trust Country National Champion and this division two level on very competitive and I had no idea what I was in for Housing Estate Champ in high school and so I think just saying those unrealistic goals early on was really tough for me but in the long run. That's really really helps. I feel I. I manage to stay after for years and years and years now and it seems like it's all finally coming together so when they say you know you gotta put in that work you after year. There's no better testaments than if you look my progression of how it's been cazadores so many years when I was just sitting at home just so upset why others around more success. Y You know things working for me and I just tell myself it's GonNa work is going to work. It's going to work in you know I didn't have quite the success. I want to in college but I will say that. I wouldn't trade having a successful college for the success on having now post-collegiate Lee because I'm going to have a lot more of that and a lot more time to work with now and so that's kind of put on man awesome kind of thing going on that though will check building across country. It not much attention on a ride. It doesn't get the love that no football or basketball. Get so for you. What was your drive with? All internal did he won't be what did know. Your name will go driving. You WanNa be best. Yeah that's a great question. I've had a lot of people asking it out lately. Kind of what drives me. I've trained alone. I graduated in sixteen and so on finished up mileage ability in fifteen in stuck around next year to graduate into teaching in so I I've been at now for the third year of training myself. I train alone and so I mean I'm a high mileage guy so I put in a hundred hundred and forty mile weeks by myself most weeks and so that s really tough but I think the thought that just keeps me going now is just knowing that you know. I have done it for so long. I know that for me part of getting out the door and going by myself every day putting in to our runs you know every other day. It's knowing that once the race comes around. It's so much easier for me to just kind of locked in with the other competitors and kind of get a go with the flow and really tight lock into them and it's so much easier that way for me so forcing myself to get out alone putting that time and it's helped me to work in academia getting a PhD right now. Here's the receipt. Kansas inspire management in so running. I have a life is lobbying. Zayed's Han Aww from depression anxiety those kinds of things in so for me running midnight huge outlet for that just the stress that comes with whether it's been a unsatisfactory career at Pittsburgh. Stay in running or not quite what I envisioned. You know. There's a lot of demons I feel like. I've ran for so long that you know really this past fall. I took a chance. I reached out to a race half marathon in Indianapolis and I still remember my parents were handouts Colorado Conference meeting in my mom's being like where are you going like? What's this race in the half marathon? I'm getting run really fast. And I went out there in nearly hit. The Olympic trials all find time in it and I remember calling on everybody. Who's just freaking out. And so I think you just that thought it. I've done this for so put in my time. I really feel like if I was going to quit or to have stopped I would have done this years ago. And so sends I've put in my time. I kept my hand over the flame. It's crazy for me to throw it in now in so at this point. It's really just knowing that I've done hard work. You know at this point it's fine. It's so much fun going out. And you'll put in twenty miles twenty five miles wherever you know. Now Dianne fire up in the fifty KS thirty one miles and so for me now. It's this is the fun part. This is what I put in all those years of work forward to you know to get to and now. I'm getting to really Kinda see how fast I can go. And so that thought alone is knowing how can? I run a marathon you know. Can I go for the American record in the fifty k? Those thoughts really when it's tough to get out the door those kinds of thoughts in my head or like you know. Nobody is thinking about Lawrence Kansas right here. Nobody seeing about being from Kansas. Nobody no I'm kind of in my own little spot right here. to fly under the radar and that's really motivating to make light showing up race day in not being. You know the guy and so I like hit after it making my name and having those people coming up outrace is like you know who the heck argue. Why did you come from I to me? That's the most fun is when those kind of things happen so I'd rather have that role than the guy gets all the attention.
A Decade Of Adventures With Professional Volleyball Player Marisa Field
"Though. Morita the question of when it comes on when you're younger than athlete will. Your bigger during the goal is to achieve. Actually I was just thinking about this. I used to have this like. I don't know way back when when you had like. Msn Messenger thing or ICQ like those instant messaging things on your computer like my little bio thing was like pro volleyballer end like it was kind of a joke. 'cause like I didn't even know what that meant at the time. Just like yeah. That sounds good. Like Appropriately but had no idea like how it was going to get there what that bed so I guess I was always like kind of an idea in the head but actually was kind of a nerd in high school actually was planning to be a chemist I went to university with the intention of that and volleyball took over my life so okay so when you say you're going to be him if like how do you feel that working out like Nafta type stuff like why can't we be wasn't entirely sure but I just chemistry high school. I started my first year at college in my hometown. Action with the intention doing or years volleyball but graduating ending chemistry after the whole course life change. That's awesome so so you had your MFN bio theme Pro Volleyball Claire. So when you wrote that in life started happening had you start thin are i. How can I make this reality? Yeah I think Actually like I was just trying to remember when I started playing volleyball. I think I was about while which is crazy now to think about says while is actually been two decades now. I've been playing volleyball thirty. Two ounce so yeah. It's Kinda crazy but I think the starting kind of jump off point for me was when I made team be see from. Abc and I made that provincial team when I was like or teen I think and Is your calling you very raw. Was the word they used for Terrible but I jumped really high back then. I guess I'd potential so they took me and I didn't interview That year the year after something for them I think it had something like one day. I WANNA wear like a maple leafs on my back in fourteen candidate ahead said that Ben in nearly no like what it took to get there but eventually became a path so dover I know there's Tony was the have the application you know. They say. I want to be in Olympia and I WANNA don't own and do all these things. People atoms dry. Yeah like you can't do that to. How did you keep your mind? That like may laugh at my drain on a chase them all like originally when I started playing volleyball. I didn't even really WANNA play Bible like I started dance when I was like three years old. So I dance all the way up until the end of my high school. And my mom had kinda like encourage Mir Gently pushed me to play volleyball and at the time like basketball. More which is binding workers like ended up deciding basketball's too much running for me so I ended up. I was doing all three things. That was dancing. Anos playing volleyball and basketball into high school and then I can window basketball and then faced out dance. Bowling Ball's seemed like a better future option to go with so I started college. I graduated sixteen so a super young and I had offers to go to other schools like in the states and other Kadian universities ended up wanting to just stay home and I had really good the program at it was actually called back in but it's the UCLA now University of British Columbia Okanagan so that was in Colona and the coach was Steve. Manual was one of my mentor coaches still to this day. He kind of had a big role to play in my progression volleyball. So after my first year there recruited to go to U B C in Vancouver with Doug Rhymer in his team and it was kind of scary. Move to consider and I went to a two years with Steve Cohen than ended up making a transfer to UC Vancouver in coober into the it's called CIS fact then it's like all changed Old Sport now like a Canadian University system so I ended up going there my third year and after my first year there. I actually got invited to try out for the national team so just kind of like crazy because after my first year. Ub See a lot of the players on ABC. Were playing on the national team or not was. Kinda like became more of a realistic goal. I guess you'd say and I was like you know maybe after a couple more years like chance tryout and it was just kind of a really strange process how I ended up getting a tryout and then ended up making it and as when I was nineteen and so things just took off from there. Wow so he graduated at fifteen Lloyd. just win for team into transitioning to the next level. Yeah so like when I started I was still kind of didn't really have the idea like my first year. I was like okay. I'm going to chemistry and whatever tall Canadian still pretty nerdy. Still Pretty that. I think when I got recruited to go to the CIS and go play for a UPC IN VANCOUVER. That was kind of like okay. Maybe things can kind of progressing go ahead and they gotta also the gentle nudge from my coach. There Steve Manual. That you know you can stay here but basically I'm kicking out because I want you to go play at the higher level and Sierra potential so that was kind of Mike Start off point in the program with Doug Rhymer Jesse Knight was coach at the time and they really Hannah propelled my career in and getting me onto the national team and then I ended up finishing up two more years with. Ub See we won two national championships back to back. Actually and then they went onto win for more after I graduated in a row but Selena was kind of the start of my national team career when I was nineteen and then just retired from that like a year ago. So I'm relying on your La- calendar something you said if you ride a story about your journey it will be. I believe instead a decade of venture. But when you when you wrote that in your mind what we've thinking it's just kind of funny actually because I saw graduated from U B C in two thousand nine and then a number of the national team and then went to play pro for my first season abroad. Enso's like the two thousand nine going into two thousand. Ten was my first year in Europe. I was in Spain and the Canary Islands with my teammates Page and it was just like my funniest stories of life and pro. Come from this season it was just like so ridiculous in so many ways home at Christmas. Like almost didn't come back but when back and finish it out and yeah just finding those kind of the start of my career so the last decade now as I go back and forth on wrapping up in this decade. But yet it's just been. I've been all over Europe late in the Philippines. It's been ten years eleven years with team Canada and yet it's just been a lot of adventures all over the world so I think that sums it up for me your password. Kobe just ridiculous. I've had to in that time. Also pretty full of awesome so going back to the volleyball in making the kind of play with higher compensation had you again was an adjustment to your mentality how you approached the game or the always the same I think definitely I mean developed. I think even from kind of a young age I had like sort of athletic discipline instilled into me. If you from LIKE DANCE. Three in that was like a very disciplined Pity so I think I just always kind of had that. I think that's just part of my character. Personality is kind of like the athlete mindset but definitely like as I progressed higher up in levels that kind of became more of like my dreams once I made team Canada became okay analysis become an Olympian and so that was the focus and that sort of worked towards a win to two Olympic qualifiers A. Twenty twelve in two thousand sixteen. Very narrowly missed the twenty. Sixteen qualification end. So that was pretty heartbreaking but that was kind of the goal that was like why played volleyball was always to hopefully get to the Olympics. One day and that was Kinda what fueled him what. Push me through a lot of difficult times for sure and persevered through a lot of things and a lot of crazy seasons abroad in Europe pro. And and all that but Yeah I think that was always. My dream unfortunately didn't happen but had a lot of a lot of adventures along the way trying to get
The State of 'The Black Quarterback': A Conversation with Donovan McNabb
"Over a decade ago my Business Partner Hall of Fame Quarterback Warren Moon. I sat down to discuss. How can we stop? The labeling of black quarterbacks are dream was for some day they're not to be that description at all. I was blessed to sit down with Donovan. Mcnabb one of his men teas and proteges to discuss the status and progression of black quarterbacks in the NFL. This is entrepreneurs. The playbook hey I wanted to have a conversation about black quarterbacks and as you know it's been a big part of my career has warned being a client and then a partner of mine are dream. Ten years ago was that nobody would ever say black quarterback right but I think you know to this day that they don't use it as much but I see a hangover when I look at you not be in the hall of fame or the way that Warren's marketed because they don't want that story told about six years in Canada right right and then there's just an under Tony it's unintentional. It's like even with the metoo movement. Things go on aren't intentional. It's social development social. How can we help? Expediter accelerate people understanding the equality. That exists I you have to appreciate I don't think we're at a point where we appreciate the level of evolution. That's going on and I say that because he wanted to mention. Hey you know you were kind of guy that passed the torch in them like no. The torch was already late for Marlin Bristow Gilliam and dumb and James James Harris and those particular guys. It was then but it wasn't one that was accepted and then. I think when you mentioned the warnings and the Randall Donovan. Before I thought it was a warm place you played when you played but it was. It was kind of a it. Wasn't it wasn't appreciate and when? I say that you know it was the yard that Warren Password worn was Dan Marino. We'll be talking about how radio because his numbers are comparable today without the six years in candidate. But I I think what we're seeing now is. We're seeing people start to understand the level of talent ability. How cerebral these kids are. They can play from the pocket and their leaves. These are all things that when they mentioned about. You'll see that in in the list now and says it has it's literally presidential but but the thing is you have to be able to take a step back and say you know what these kids can play the quarterback position. And when you look at the collegiate ranks then more black quarterbacks in the collegiate good ones so again it goes back to happen understand. What the level we go through and give it to appreciate what we're seeing you know. I do allow entrepreneurs and I talked about patients who and the need to be offended or or resentful. And it's so interesting with all those guys that you talk to your mom. Briscoe someone that in California. We do a ton of work with for years trying to get that movie made by the way you know. It's a really good movie and a really good story but nobody's really resentful and angry or offended. How do you have the patience to wait for the reality to come about that? All the top quarterbacks are going to be evaluated by their talent. Well here we have old. School mentality shouts and tell you them telling evaluators who still have that. Well he's black quarterback what are we just evaluated his ability. How intelligent he is. The family background would become as he comes out. It's nothing else that you need to focus on focus on his color. You only public hair. You have to focus on how he wants. You know the the focus needs to be more of the position and that's what we're seeing we have. We have been after the American insult that people are afraid to talk about now. He will say well. We don't need talking about though. He's the third every America's worries. They play of great ones. The greatest african-american quarterback did win. The might. I've worked with before because the caregiver Steve but this could be an opportunity for a guy who people love is ability. Yeah and then. They want to question the thing about his character. What are you looking at? Are you looking more deep into trying to fight the negative or how good this really with? Doug flutie yeah who has a lot of similarities to a lot of running quarterback and I said if you were an African American would have been your chances even to play in the CFL for how old he is. He said there won't be a chance ever but stories like that people boss. Yeah well that's what I wanted in talking to people over and and it's important for us to focus on that because it's not gonNA stop. I mean we're looking at. We've looked at five afterward quarterback just in the playoffs alone. Yeah headed had a chance to have to play it in title game and then it's GonNa continue to grow where mean who's to say feels doesn't get drafted in the next year or two from Ohio state. Then I was talking about him. It's exciting right now. You've been one of those guys. They continue to grind the path. I'm on your team. As far as I'm Jay Hall of Famer right here. More people need to be aware of the issues that we're facing and this guy needs to be in the hall of fame and many others because we're building a pipeline hall of famers. It's a shame that Warren Moon American and I appreciate the respect. I love warranty. That's right I n there. I appreciate your insight and honesty thanksgiving.
The Athlete Mentality and Journey of Megan Henry, Team USA Skeleton Athlete
"Morning right. Where are you now? I'm in Connecticut some home for Christmas. Which is nice awesome Meghan equipment? Everyone that comes on when you're younger an athlete bigger goal to achieve. I think the same museum like I really wanted to be a division field hockey player and I didn't start clang field hockey until I was in middle school and I just kind of went to a camp on a whim. My mom signed me up for this camp and I was okay. Added is pretty shy. Actually when I was younger so I didn't necessarily they WANNA do things by. I came early like field hockey and play A. I Made Varsity as a sophomore in in high school. which like not a lot of people did at the time and scored the game winning goal in double overtime to send us to states and that was like a really Big Ping and I started looking at schools early on when I was playing at Varsity I knew that I wanted to play Division One and I am from Connecticut? It's all I wanted to go to uconn. And that didn't pan out it. Just kind of miscommunication like the coaches. I went to like all of these showcases. Oh Cases All these tournaments in suffers college coaches there and I applied to Uconn a by dining university. Another big school school and I went to this tournament and they had a college night so if you were like an up and coming senior year pretty much should have been Mike committed by appointment. You like if you are a junior senior and so most people kind of new idea had senior night actually what it was called and so there were a bunch of college coaches there they had tables buy. If you were already pretty much headed toward the cooler emitted the Yukon took all of their upcoming seniors out. They took them out to dinner and they didn't tell me so. I was really upset about it. That was like Oh my God. What is is happening so I walked to the table? I knew American University. which is where I went to college? Was this senior night and I hadn't really like Don on a whole lot with them. I kind of like communicated I really liked Washington. DC inside went up to him. And I was like. I'm playing in these Games tomorrow and I just as you know. And he had seen me so I pretty much at least contact coaches that the tell them what I was doing was planning for whereas playing in he had seen the answer he was already interested so that was like really helpful but I ended up being someone who really late college visit I committed. It'd very late because my dream school of playing for you conduct didn't pan out so I was like you know in complete panic that I hadn't committed needed anymore until really late like in my senior year but I went to American University. It was amazing. I was really really happy there as a freshman I and I came from being like the star player. You know I live in the middle of nowhere Like I don't know there's not that many people and I was not a starter freshman year I was not a star off our air and I kind of got mixed in to me. That was really hard to deal with. I was not I used to being like not key player and so another kind of sounds like a little spoiled. I guess I it wasn't used to it and because it took me a lot of time and energy to like be a really key player in high school I was expecting like the work was already done. You had a mentor. That told me like back in the day. That head coach told him the ball. That looks cheer right. Everyone living in this room with author on their teams well exactly and that is exactly how I remember talking with other people. My roommate at the time was playing and to my other close friends on the team we were. We were on the bench and I was like what is going on. And they're like I don't know I was the same when I was the number one player you know and so so it's pretty wild like as you keep leveling up like everybody was the best at one point Bob Force needs to be more of like a utility l'idee player so I had in high school I was a forward I was a right wing and I was actually recruited as a midfielder something I never did I ended up ultimately ultimately playing mostly right wing again in college I was moved all around the front line is a forward I I saw Dan as a midfielder my had to L. become better at my defensive skills so ended up being good for me just to become a better overall player so the journey for you go your shot with coach yeah you like saying Hey I'm playing you want me can play and I mean it was definitely Salihi it was kind of like this is a panic Mike I have nowhere to go now 'cause I all my eggs in one basket let's get back I mean it it worked out really well I think a lot of people not to cut no I was that way when employees school hot ply the two schools Oklahoma and Oklahoma state and they would like the last resort not With date anybody knows like I don't Wanna ask her there so for you if that didn't happen did you have another plan or what we're GONNA do. I had applied to Uconn Indiana and like. UVM was like my last choice. Did Not want to go there and I had done unofficial visit there and it would have been okay. I would never have become the player that I did and it. Just it all works out serendipitous Lee. You think it's bad but it was the I absolutely loved my college athletic other experience. My college coach was phenomenal. He's one of the best in the country. I would put money on it. He's coached the women's national team at the Olympics convicts. He's an Olympian in field hockey and the coaching skills that he has and how he treated US set me up for success on on the road like you just. I think that I would never found that anywhere else. Just how incredible he was person. So I'm really great for agreeable right because I did work out better for me. Everything works I wanted to yes. So you're saying you know that first year you kinda end this limbo trying to figure okay. What's my role adult? Get to where I was in high school and understand the another local playing time for. How did you approach that at your athey mindset? We'll I I I was like I don't know if I belong here. Maybe I'm kidding myself that I was good enough to be here so I sat down with my coach I was like. I don't know if I should do this anymore. And he's like known so. I guess helpful to kind of get reassurance. 'cause there were a lot of. I think what kind of spark that a a lot of other people started walking away and I think some of them were like. I don't WanNa go to school anymore. I'm going to transfer her whatever it may be like. Maybe O and in two of my close friends on the team left and so I kind of felt like yeah now I have nobody really. They're like my two closest friends are gone on their leaving and I ended up staying in. I don't know I guess it was just that the reassurance really did help me change uh-huh and I mean I trained really hard in the gym and I think there's a lot more than I could have done actually like looking back on it. Oh I think he always offered like individual sessions outside of of artists. So if you wanted to like get better skill you could sign up for individual so it was called and I could have done more stuff like that or signed up for like small group sessions outside practice and identity. There's more moreover I could have done but I trained really hard. In the off season I moved to Washington. DC My last year. I stayed there in the summertime and I trained with the strength coach in the off season because I wanted to make my senior year. Really really good and yeah and then actually. After my senior season was done I walked onto the track team American University. Because I just I wasn't ready to be done being an athlete. We all can you hang on to officiate so you track and field. What you do as a sprinter? So like indoor. Yeah I guess there's a fifty five I don't even know if you five indoor one hundred two hundred four by one quick. I like to think I'm out right. Thank you I'm not like national level but I'm good cool like how your story playhouse awesome. Because you know the field hockey thing with the coordination with the running with no the stig ethnic dead ball that then you gotta check him field when you work on in your expanding your mechanic the now you're in this notion. Yeah so after I graduated college I enlisted in the army. I guess because I was trying to get a job in a lot of places where like you need three to five years work experience. You need master's degree and I was like good all right. I had an interest in enjoying military actually when I was very young and I thought it was an honorable thing to do so like within a month of graduate I joined the army and I should off to basic training and I joined because it continues like you need to have the physical side the mental side. There's a team environment so like all of that stuff is really attractive. The obviously it's something that I know very well and allowed me to continue and then after I was finished with all of my basic training my Vance job training. I was recruited to do
Waking From The Dream With Dr. Kirsten Van Heerden
"So the question that everyone that Oh come on it? When you're younger has an athlete will bigger than the gold you went to achieve? It's an interesting question that when I was young athlete and often talk to people about this and and say I was not one of those athletes. That's when I was young dreamed of being Olympic athletes. I think I just if I'm honest. I love swimming and I was super competitive additive so I swam. 'cause everybody just loved it and I was obviously That even from Gina level at school and I just love love being in the water and I'm super competitive in whatever ideas that kind of suited me and they just found my way within that then of course as a status train hard it was probably in just entered. High School is around twelve twelve and I decided to stop doing the sports. I used to do a little bit odd gymnastics until I grew six toll. I can't gymnastics to told to do it. I did a bit of basketball okay of Naples but of high jump but you as a win. It's too high school. I really try something. That was the thing that I wanted to do and really became focused on that from Yasser around twelve eighteen years of age End of mates genius African teens and progressed to some senior African team so my career kind of just suppose it flowed from nats and it was really just something to say. I love to end enjoyed competing in flow going on that. Have you find flamingos by one day being fined the pool one day. Anything I love this. I'm actually a mismatch and so when I was younger the young kid. The doctors That she takes me swimming because is being is pretty good for asthma. Actually a lot of Zuma's that I know have have esmer's well and so. She decided to take some swimming lessons. I have all the brother and he was going at the same time so I think it was convenient for her to take together. So y'all got into. It's probably from the age of roundabouts three. I was in the pool and really as I got in. I just remember accidentally loving being in the water and something that kind of came naturally as foes and we would spend some. I remember my my brother and I in the neighborhood children in our swimming pool and pain gains. And you're running around crazy. Certain has always been around horror and then we would have cepal days we would have family holidays at the beach McCain from the ages of love being in the water at the beach each say something to say from the Seemed seven affinity full. Lucky could I had asthma too. And my day run more doc icon. Brenham come out of it and now they okay. We'll get they're gonNA run so when you started kind of seeing you Kinda went all in on the Fleming economist at age twelve and Says at what point did you say I wanNA take this to be the next web for me. You almost around about that age. Say as I got into grade eight at high school in the the middle of great eight assay ahead some decisions to make around various different sports. I thought to myself at that point. You know what I couldn't imagine myself is carrying on gymnastics. I'd go into the provincial cuts for its net end soon with Nipple Hijab but I thought to myself you know when I finished school I can really see myself carrying on swimming. That was the one thing that I really love. And so has steadily from say probably that middle of great age. It was a conscious decision that this was something that I really wanted to do. And then by the end of Grade Eight said made my fist acid African junior team. And so I suppose I kind of got rewards straight away. Wait for that decision which was great because okay this on the right path yet and every year after that I was fortunate enough to make a team to travel whether whether it was to Europe or the states or something like that and compete and so getting those kinds of awards for your hard work really motivated me to keep going and keep the suing it. Sometimes when we these like at a young age we know it can not either you know give of competent world or you know kind of backfire on though so for you. What kind of cup? Humble you know an offensive you know you achieve great thing but always More work be done better. Yeah I I think there were a number of Vista. I think my family kicked my feet on the ground and I'm always incredibly grateful for that. You know when I was at home. It was very much you simply Chris. We don't care what swimming team rewritten you. Part of the family things that you need to do here so they say my family rarely did kind of keep my feet on the ground and as much as I say that I made some African something teams which I did. I was never travelling overseas. And being the best in the world from straightaway and even in South Africa. You know there was some competitive. The report. me so I think you had to in maybe at school level. It's a little bit easier into into the higher levels and other that had quite hard to beat the goal that was in front of me. I'm going to make the teams and you go the season. You realize WHOA. I'm at be good inside Africa but I'm not that great internationally and because of my competitive nature I think that was just kicked me pushing me motivation to push further rally and yes. The safe was both of those things in my family instrumental. Tremain Tal in just helping. Keep me grounded said lots of friends I think as well that were nonstop is unknown athletes. And she's saying to someone earlier today in the best possible way. I didn't really care about you. Know as it was really fantastic that you could go and just hang on him and not have to be kissed in the summit you could it just via self. I love the Laflin because he kriton yourself having a lot of time. You know like we don't really like her last call that we have to call them in our did any of being you know Kobe. The athletes Stand your kristen. Yeah exactly it has sometimes. Yeah people don't even know your name that would just use is a summer where you're the one at school is being called from the stage for example in assemblies and that you get whatever crisis that might be and as much as it was great right your identity entity can become wracked at the net. And I think all athletes union was the soft place to land this alternative world because the world of elite sport can actually be pretty cautioned. Tough and you need this other world that you can just be a selfish and self worth as well you know for me. And I'm sure we'll get onto this. You know not drawing that Ernie from my formats and the swimming pool being able to see self worth a posh from that and you hang out with friends that disliked you for you because you were doing one on the swimming pool thousand South I learned the hard way got hurt my tomato and along the athlete and I saw how the world kind of shifted for me a little bit. You know the longer no the guy like just another do not like oh different world at this way absolute is trying to figure that out and again talk a fad at old figured out. That didn't they. Were certainly times way. It was incredibly difficult when I didn't make team why didn't perform well. It's taught not enjoy yourself with from that it's hard not to see yourself as that and actually it was just off to school. I had qualified qualified for the Commonwealth Games. And Americans know the Commonwealth Games up all the Commonwealth countries are involved end. It's quite a major event and I'd qualified for it but some Africa have a standard way you have to make the qualifying time in the final at nationals and had been in the week eating up to the nationals. I didn't make time and I remember being completely devastated that a hedonist made the Commonwealth Games and it was almost a sense at that point of the second was who am. I haven't made this team. I say I remember so clearly thinking and family will love me but I had to go until my friends at this is what had happened and and your moment's started to realize that I couldn't only see myself as kristen head to also really make sure that I was seeing myself as someone else

"How do you have a Dulcinea and by having a young girl from this village play? Play the young the girl in the film. Whatever whether she results didn't matter but what that did how she went off to become a star and and ended up being an escort eventually a tart and basically the kept woman of a rich oligarch so she became Dulcinea? Because because Dulcinea in Keighley's world is a really basically a horse who she is and he's he's innocent attitude towards her is. Such is an untouchable thing but we had one ended up with a character who was touchable in the end and in the end. Nobody's actually made any comments about about as Cayote and the news on nucleoside in new Sancho Panza ride off into the sunset Sanchez L.. Woman what is it. What does this mean is an asset? Well maybe she'll turn into cayote this. I don't know the the film. I think the problem for the film for me was kind of like Adam. The expectations people for twenty five years. So it's going to be great. It's gotTa me phenomenal. Why does it have to be great? Why isn't it just the latest film I did and that is? It's not like I had the perfect script and we just had to get it right it. It was just trying to do something that made a film about Donkey Odi whatever and we ended up with a very different story with very different people. And it's better than what we set out to do. But that's necessary what people think that I I just like. I don't want people to have expectations when I go to Bubis and I just wanted to. We agree we say that mantra of ours actually So when you get to see this film folks wipe the slate clean. Yeah that's that's what Terry's asking you because there's been too many reviews who whatever they're saying in the review the last paragraph starts with wasn't really worth Earth waiting thirty years and you know what the answer is going to be. There was one review that said yes but most of you know you know the answer and that's the problem I keep saying it's not a film that I'm wrote thirty years ago that I have. It's a something we worked on an ended up making a film couple years ago and finished budget on time. Yes that's all on budget on time. Ladies and gentlemen but ladies and gentleman not and you find it for have you seen this. We don't want to talk about distribution you do. Oh No let's not keep your eyes and ears open and and Sooner or later through the new means we have now now streaming and downloading and And even old fashioned. DVD's and BLU rays. I believe in those much more than streaming Is the quality's better and you can. I can see it again and now the problem. I think the other thing about so many films Don Quixote falls into that category. It's better the second time and I've heard it from friends. It's really always bothers me because a friend who's worked on many of my films saw Quixote London Film Festival and and she didn't say much outdoors but as usual people. Don't make you feel good. An we had another screening more recently and she saw it again. Should I have to admit Oh. I saw the first time. I didn't get it. I really didn't get Terry. I didn't know what you're doing. I saw it the second time. It's the best film you've ever made. I don't agree with her on either later but it's nice that that affected it happened. Untied Land is same thing because Thailand is a film that is a disturbing film because because it's disturbing and I was issued in Paris about the French journalists had watched it and he I said Okay I saw it. I thought it was terrible. I hated it and then I said and they said because I knew I was going to have to interview you today. I watched the second time. It's wonderful and that's really interesting and a lot of my films have been like that. Where what if? I don't understand what it is. People are expecting expecting the first time because I'm not delivering. What they're expecting is all I know but if they like it enough to look again yeah now I get it? It's just great. It's wonderful that you've arrived at this moment and of course you had your moment when you got a standing ovation at can. I'm sure that was in minutes but no even that see nothing is satisfying. We're getting unbelievably unbelievable. Is the longest in the history of Coun- close and I'm standing doing all byles. Is it about the film or the fact that I I finally made. It is about endurance or the quality of what they just saw. And I still don't know maybe it's everything or nothing. They say they had to fill out. That would be a two-minute standing. I would reckon for fifty best. What are you doing thank you well? We can't thank you enough for stomach. Today Cherries thanks And we love you we love your work and And we encourage people to keep their eyes and ears open. Yes the man who killed Don Quixote. Auty thank you and your social media human. I get on my facebook and post things and let the world know because I've been surrounded especially on this film with some of the worst distribution on the planet and people have no idea. The film is even out there. So I put it on for the fans these to hopefully go and see it and it's this is a new world and skyguide. I think it's very difficult for any independent filmmaker now because the independent distributors distributors do not have the money anymore and they're fighting studios ill-spent eighty million promoting a film Omar and they don't have the money and they keep. Ah they talk about. Oh but people follow our social media. We do it on social media. Don't you've got to know the company that's Putting the film out and you've got to be going to their website. There's nothing else out there so I asked. Why do it on my facebook page? I've got a few fans out there. Yes well pay attention. Yeah hopefully for any of you listening. Make sure you tell your friends. Mr Gilliam would like everyone to see his motion picture. Yes please I I have a family. I have a mortgage have many expenses that I help with please and I'm getting old. I WANNA spend spend what money I have as quickly as possible because I don't have long. I understand and we.

"Yes you've you've also landed or discovered if we can use that word people Sort the beginnings innings of their careers Who fulfilled the promise that they showed in your films? I'm thinking first of Sarah Pauly. Who who's talented at three years old yup talented today and talented director? She didn't it didn't learn that skill for me though and learn all the things not to do. It's what it was so just brilliant child and when we were shooting Munchausen she was like the oldest person on the set she was the professional and it was always worrying because we were working weird hours and I think afterwards at some point she was made made several interviews about the dangerous she was in. That was apparent. Bajor wasn't real danger because I'm not gonNA sacrifice whatever main characters it's but so it was great. I get what makes me think about working with kids in in you know in time bandits that in Bush house had been untied lamb with Joe del Fairly and and this was the most extraordinary child she was nine and a half years old. I think Sarah was a half for your older who I did one Chelsea and and you find these kids who are so. They are kids but they're so smart and beyond on their years. I don't know where this comes from and again Joe. Del just made that film work. She's she's the lead she's never offscreen. Hardly and and have a little kid holding it. I just I don't know what it is. It gets totally instinct. When I'm casting I I have some information about them Aw and then we talk at. It's really about. I really like this person. I think it'd be fun to play with in the midst. It's kind of like that. Well that's the perfect motivation. It is important. And if you're going to be honest set and you're creating your world both onscreen and in real life you don't want to be around someone you can't stand. I know you've got to spend time in advance. Sounds to do that. We're talking about the same movie. Yes that's always nothing so that's that I don't have to direct other than saying stand there and move over there. It's it's not like I'm sitting here. Getting performance of somebody by being clever manipulated them. It's just basically being a good audience because with my wide. Angle Lenses is. I've always very close to the actors and I'm right there and I'm a good audience when they're funny. I laugh when the tragic I cry and they can see. It's it's not me sitting back in an airstream trailers some video. You're not in video village in there. And we're communicating really closely. And I don't try to tell them much at all. I just hope that we've talked enough in advance. We understand what we're trying to do. And then we go to work and then an actor in that situation wants to please you. Yeah I mean if you're performing and you're like being a coach I imagine this sport you want the coach to give you words words of approval. You want approbation for what you done. I know I don't I mean what I read about. How Hitchcock deals with actors? Now now I don't know how to do that. I you can just be a buddy there by the one. That intrigued me was fisher. King is Jeff Bridges. I mean it's a great performance but what I didn't know and people tell they don't realize he's doing you to really and when I look at the film his movements. He's not doing me but he's a certain energy in the way of moving at and that's what I do. Well he chose a good inspiration then worked but when you work with somebody like that you're working with with a genius and you just I marvel. I just sit that God. How where's this coming from house? He House yeah. Well he's the best. There is what what impressed you about heath. Ledger Heath Ledger again. I met him. The first thing came up with Nicola Pecker in my DP was doing a film called it was called the Sin Eater and Atlanta and he called me and said this kid is great because we had just unfair so this kid Barron. Johnny said you've got to beat him and so he turned up in In Hollywood and I met him and it was just just one of those things he thought this guy is so tremendous just the aura that came off him and we laughed and played and I thought this is fantastic and it proved to be that he was one of those people. Everybody who met him was amazed. There was something he just gave off vibes. That were so extraordinary and member. One night we were in Prague shooting brothers Grimm and I just dragged about into see a gypsy band at a place where every pizza before and I said. Hey Th- how old are you twenty four. I thought he was like more like thirty thirty. Four he was he seemed older than Matt Damon. And and everybody who spent any time with said this is a very wise soul he he comes from something very far away very deep and he had I think the moment that really hooked me on them with Lysol Monster's ball and the moment before before he kills himself in it. It was so how. Where did this conference? How did he do what he did? Because it's so subtle and simple apple is nothing overly dramatic just hits you just hit you right in the got and and that's what it was like. I remember when Monica Bellucci came on and she was in the makeup department in there was pictures of Matt and he. She didn't know who he was. And who is that. The picture started it and it was just from then on C.. He he he thinks it's I think it's one of the to me. It's one of the really true tragic great on losses. Yeah because I think he was without a doubt going to be the best of his generation. There was nobody close. It had the range he can do comedy he tragedy. It was a romantic lead on every level and it was it was Bearable basically when he got out of that tragedy. And I'm not making light of it in any way. Came an interesting solution to your dilemma of losing your leading man in the magic area. My doctor for gas. Well more in two thousand. You didn't have for the moon back for this film you're right and says it was when he died we we. He just finished shooting in London halfway through the shoot and then we all went our different ways. We went out to Vancouver. He went to New York. And and I'm getting endings ready in Vancouver and my daughter comes in. I was in the art department. Try to save some money off and she said come on you gotta come into. My Office is busy. I can say fifteen thousand dollars here and there was an an all we had was the on her computer. BBC announcing heath debt. And I it just it was impossible. It was impossible to believe because we've just been working together. Thanks and and anyway I was. I said well that's it. I'm I'm going home. This is over because I just love this guy and I just couldn't see anyway of continuing my daughter. Amy Just will not let go you got we got to fix this. We're going to do it. Nicole mine DP the same thing come you gotta do we gotta get somebody else size in the end. I said wait. There's all one actor that could replace heath as far as I'm concerned and I said let's get three and that was hit eh. First person I called was johnny and interviews Johnny Depp and an Johnny said whatever you want I'll be there and and that stopped the retreat retreat of the Finance Finance Insurance Company. Were just the film is over. He and I said my daughter said we got Johnny. Depp agreed to come on and then than Than Jude Law and Colin Farrell. Because I only wanted people that were close to heath friends I was offered some really big names ames. Who wanted to be in there to take over the part and I said no I want Scott family and that's what it was? They did a brilliant job and they worked for nothing they gave their money. All to heath's daughter I mean that's you don't experience things like that very often in show bizz to have that much love and appreciation of One Person Eighth Ledger and and the fact. The film works brilliantly. But it's still the one for me. I would have liked to have seen the film that he thought they were making now or I will never see that but what we made with the three begin. uh-huh was fantastic. They were all because they all knew that they were able just feed off of what they felt about. Heath it was great. And you've three brilliant actors actors mean you know it's it's three as you say it's it's the perfect combination so of all the people that you could choose from who know he happens to be three of the best actors dot the trick is every film. You're doing case you lead is big. Sure you've got a magic mirror. Crucial filmmakers I says my big advice vice. Well it's that aspect of the film is seamless. It's only worth it. So work seems organic and there is a scene in there that has heath in it and he was dead where we shall see We found a real good little trick. we pulled it off and not going to tell you this magic. Get a mild rant on my part I don't want to. I know how everything is made. I understand that some people want to go behind the scenes deep dive but then especially before movie comes out at least if it's come come out and I've seen it then it's not as intensive and experience but I don't WanNa Watch anything where you said. Okay so you know how in this scene will that wasn't unreal boat and that wasn't real and this isn't this isn't this isn't because movies are meant to be magic. Yup and if all I'm doing the entire time saying wow it's a really good magic trick. Then that's not the thing that's what to me is even like I'll go into like CGI work. I don't want it to be seen to be. CGI US all the time but people aren't aware I'm using because it's good magic. Good magic as you look over in this ham but I'm really by right. Head is in another so another nice piece of casting is to see today's man of the moment driver all of the movies in the lead of Your your belly. No Man who killed Don Quixote. I know I mean how many films in at the moment he's a has no life outside aggressively Adam again again my daughter. Amy gets the blame for everything she said out of driver because I had seen Ian Star Wars with him the first Kylo Ren and I thought okay. It's kind of interesting. But it is what it is. And she said this guy's good. And he's bankable see always it's always got to be. And he's bankable say whether it's Robin Williams. And he's Bankable Ed so she arranged a meeting on. We had luncheon a pub in London and I met him. I hadn't seen I've never seen girls. I've I've never even seen Patterson. I had only seen him as Kylo Ren he. Es C Patterson. I will tell..

I think subsequently I've just stayed away and I've renounced citizenship. I'm now one hundred percent British but I am always thinking about America. The power of America in the world and the influence that has all the rights and wrongs of the country has done on. So I'm always I think commenting on America and I'll probably all my films in one way or another heavily disguised I was just wondering because that's the thing that always fascinated me but English humor is that it's a like the Janus the two headed creature On the one hand you have. It's the country that produce Noel Coward. Yes and it's the country that produced Benny Hill. Yes both are equally the British as been used in a sentence. I'm sure people range before. Will it be Benny Hill in Monty Python. We're always using the same sentence they thought are kind of humor was identical. Benny Hill's couldn't be more different. But course it it took American. It seemed to be British humor. Whatever that meant And and so how did you. How did you find you fit into that national psyche? If there is one at all I was. I was anglophile for years. I mean I love the ealing comedies. I love own beyond the fringe. It was just something that I thought this is so funny. It's because you had a country that was laughing at itself. The American doesn't is not very good at laughing at itself. And that's what I liked about English humor. 'cause they're this country had the biggest empire the world has ever known on and lost it and so I got there about less than one hundred years after they lost. This and I think Britain survived by laughing at itself itself for losing an empire. So when you gotta humor that's based on self deprecation it's more interesting than pointing finger laughing at the other guy And I've always liked this. It suits you. I dare say it suits. You would people in. England seemed to appreciate my sense of humor as well. which in America before I left I was working with various people? Try to do things and we couldn't find an audience. We couldn't find an outlet and and getting involved with Python. I could bring my slightly skewed version of things to the others in the group so it was a nice balance is brought a certain and American anger. Describe the animation that you did and how did you come upon that that that style that mode of of animation will the second part is easier. I always love automation. I Love Walt Disney and and I could draw all cartoons and I used to do little flip books where so I could do animation on the most basic crudest level and I got involved with a the television show in England where I was basically the cartoonists to draw cartoons of the guests as they came on and they had some material they. You didn't know how to present the recorded two months worth of connecting links by this DJ British DJ. Who did these terrible ponds? And they had all this material. They didn't know what to do and I said well let me make an animated film. I had two weeks and four hundred pounds was to do it in and the only way I could do it was cutting out things that existed and moving the stuff around very crudely and nobody had seen anything like that in America I I had seen in in New York in the early sixties. Stand Vanderbeek Who was used cutout animation? And I think that's what was in my head and it was. The style was based purely on time and lack of money. Nothing more but it again. It worked worked. Yes it worked and it worked somehow uniquely well amidst all the python nonsense well. I became the connecting link because his a sketch would reach a certain point and and then they'd has mother sketches and I had to connect these two things so I had a starting point and a finishing in point and working like that those limitations ideas would come. Okay how I stick with that and you do it this way Terry and I did data and using what we used to call Clip Art would be called out now but I get go go through books. Can't find images I would send the stuff off to be photographed and then I would blow it up to the size needed and cut it out and other stuff I would. I learn to to airbrushing and I just I loved it so I can do that and I could cycle what I couldn't find in photos or engravings I I could do With my own artwork and and I I had to do this stuff so quickly because each the shows we were just turning the shows out and I probably had two weeks to do each the hover months few minutes of animation. I do each time so I was working day day and night. I probably had to all nighters at least every week which are cheaper than drugs and it's amazing. How three o'clock in the morning pieces of paper talk to you and they assemble themselves? Young artists take note the freedom of being trapped between a starting point and finishing point having to do something in a very short period of time with very libertarian objects. And it's and it's like I just I wish I wish I could work like that again. Because the thoughts Cape. Hey freely and quickly there was no time for double thinking knows you just did it and when you get on a roll like that just like a you know a great eight musician and just playing the music comes and it just comes from whatever source. Yeah Yeah Yeah and then this. That's the the magic of deadlines to yes. I've only been able to work with deadlines because I rail against them but they're necessary. I used to think where I get my agent to give me a deadline. That was A day earlier than the real devil because I was always late and I spent all night trying to get this thing done and I had an extra jail at least you know yourself at at least you know yourself well enough to plan ahead with that. You've got understand your feelings going to success. So how did this relationship relationship with the pythons. evolve into you being a part time performer. And getting involved on that was again they they were each. I'd come in with my cans of film it's show and they were doing all this stuff and there was an audience and they were having one time I was bored and so I started taking on the characters that nobody wants to touch or costumes that nobody wanted to wear just to keep myself involved and it grew into something by the time. You're like life life Brian. And I'm the jailer. My head split open and things like that they were just fund. Do I never. I only sort of chose grotesque kind of characters. Because I didn't want to be seen as me. And and they were sort of characters that the others just wouldn't deal with. I was so in awe of their talents. The others the group so I never tried to compete with them. I just filled in the gaps that nobody what does touch. Or you serve your purpose served and and do you remember any kind of purposeful conversation about Co Directing initially a feature length film with Terry Jones. I besides sharing a first name. We wind and moaned a lot. uh-huh because In mcnaughton news direct to get we just sit now come on. That looks terrible. We were very convinced that we were better than in. So when we got the money to make holy grail and we'd complete control of the whole thing Terry and I said well let the two of US direct and the others were happy because directing python is a dog's body job just because the group knows what it's doing and so we just had to do all complicated aided hard stuff getting locations cost everything which I was very happy to do and and we got our name. We made mounted in the holy grail and it said directed by Terry Jones Terry Gilliam we were film directors. Just name up there. That's the trick and once it's up there. People believe you doing washing washer direct. was that something before. I think I really did want to make films in a long time without actually ever stating it to myself clearly but I just love Bubis and I thought to be able to make a world the kinds of the people making movies which is wonderful create and control control the universe. Yes God to play God. That's what you do. You make films. Would you've got total control. It's to me. It is is every filmmaker's like creating a world and it's usually a reflection of the world. I think reliving at any moment and I and all the details are so important. Portent I love all the aspects of filmmaking. Whether it's costumes music sound effects sets I kind of do them all but I work with people. You're better than me in each of their individual Jobs but I think that's my films have any unique. Quality is because my finger prints on everything in one way or another yet. And that's just how you like it. I do but I love working with people. You're better than me because I'll have the initial idea and they will start working. They'll come up with a better one to me. It's always been who's got the best idea you've got to give up eagle in a sense and whoever has a better idea. Yeah 'cause I get credit anyway. You figured all this out you cricket all this out only when I do interviews like this. Well you're putting on a good show. All the whole thing is about you. got a good show. Kerry were buying it. We're buying it because we've seen the results so we know what What about making your I non python film that was another plateau another challenge because again? I'm sitting criticizing all the things in holy grail Oll things. We couldn't do right because we were just doing comedy. And I just wanted to be able to spend more time really creating a unique world and being romantic if I want to be the adventure adventure so I want to be and so I set on my own to make just one more mediaeval film with three pythons involved. Expecting the world low accepted as a non python film and of course it was sold as a python film which made me crazy because it isn't and when you Sela a python film. It's not meant to be funny. And so the reviews not as funny and they could dismiss the film that way. Not as funny as Holy Grail Rail. No what was wonderful to countries that didn't know python. We're who I got great reviews my dad and I was embarrassing. Yeah I do not understand what marketing team thinks. It's a good idea to sell something that it is not you know so..

"So tune in on because we have Terry Gilliam's our guest today. Hello hello to you. I still haven't decided if you're just a figment of my imagination adulation of my own imagination. And with some days I wake up and I can't imagine I'm alive and so you got me on Lucky Day. One of the greatest compliments I ever receive and it's happened more than once. Is that people think I look like something that you dreamed up. I looked like a Terry Jillian. That's the highest compliment. Thank you have been useful then. Yes yes absolutely so you have now. You won't know this or have any reason to know or remember this but we first met forty five years ago in Zagreb Bob at this animation festival in what was then Yugoslavia. We did did we we. We did well. I mean I I was probably tell me more about my life Well for for those who don't know housed a wonderful animation studio the even won an Oscar in the nineteen sixties for very clever short routes and So the fellow who ran that studio Moco mcco why do I remember his name. started this animation festival and it became a world class festival and I met so many people there that year I met John Humbly I'm at Frank Thomas from the Disney's nine old men June foray I'm an incredible array of people including you and you had some of your monty not Python Animation Shorts Inc in competition and competing with them. I don't know other other surreal animation shorts shorts I suppose but you were there and we chatted briefly and I got to say hey. I met that guys in the monty python stuff and then didn't we do something a bit later around nine thousand nine hundred eighty five. USC Yes and telluride Film Festival directly when you presented lost in La Mancha when when you were generous of spirit yes and and we thought very endearing introducing a film that was about a very painful episode in your your life than making our unmaking as you say of I think I'm one of the people that found it interesting and funny to watch everybody else. We're horrified lied for for what they thought. I must have been going through I was very relieved in many ways that it fell apart because I knew deep down that the film was in big trouble in a few months it would get even worse and I would get the blame well again. instinct perspective there but also a very philosophical tone the strike. And if you folks what film we're talking about it's a wonderful documentary by Keith. Fulton and Louis Pepe lost in La Mancha. And you've heard US recommended before because it's one of our favorites it's it's a film that didn't intend to be the film. It turned out to be though because you were shooting at. They were there to do a film about out the making of a film and as things started falling apart they were fretting. We'd come here for this and it's not that I said Cape shooting shooting. You've got to hear our disaster. Allowed them to make a much better film than they would have if he'd made the film back then in two thousand. Yes yes wild eld. What are the odds? You can't plan something like that. No nor nor would you want to. I think planning is one of the worst things you we can do live. Well that we WANNA rewind a more than a little bit. Because I didn't realize I knew you were American American born and raised but didn't realize that you you lived here. You are in a yard Panorama Valley boy Panorama City in San Fernando Valley. And I even worked the van Chevrolet really plant. Yes on. Ben Is Boulevard. Oh my hi yeah and and you were by by several accounts a straight A student. Yes I was so golden in those days straight a student I was student body president. I was head cheerleader. I was the king of the senior problem problem that that was a Freudian slip. His Co. Freud embarrassing but so there I was and you King King I was prom king and but the point is to go from there and go to college. And then my life has been downhill slide. It ever since tell us what transformed you tell us what what turned you from the All all American boy. I don't know what it was. I mean I really. Maybe she should blame Harvey Kertzman because hard because man who created mad comics And in the fifties that was like any of us who were cartoonists or humorous. That was our Bible is an I you talk about. The EC see comics era after well e C was still going on okay and the AD comics came out of Bill Gaines who saw the publisher Harvey RV at assembled. The Greatest Group of cartoonists America had ever Seen Jack Davis Willie Elder Arnold Roth Al Jaffee that the names were incredible. Crab and mad was just. We're talking about the fifties in the later and it was the magazine that produced in the end. People like Robert Crumb May All sorts of people grew with this magazine. It was so funny it would. It taught me satire but it taught me it was pointed satire. Yes But it didn't seem threatening somehow or don't ups weren't paying attention to it. I think that was it. It also is my first set of pornographic a graphic magazine. Because Wally would draw these beautiful women and I was caught reading at once. My parents punishment for this filth. It wasn't fill it was beauty. Did he is what we were talking about. But anyway so that was mad comics and in college. I started humor magazine. I'd take a a literary Arts magazine and turn it into a humor magazine. And at that point Harvey Kirkman was now editing. A magazine called help and we stole emulated copied help magazine and sent it to him and he used to send me back nice letters about what we were doing and I graduated without a plan having graduated as a political science major in Occidental College where years later a young man called Obama. That's right went there and and so I had nothing planned after I graduated. I said I think I'll come to New York meet Harvey and he wrote saying do do not. There's no jobs here and I've course pay no attention to sensible people and I turned up in New York just the day that his right right hand man is assistant editor was quitting. I walked into the job. Wow again my life was still golden everything beautifully and and you got to meet some of these people you've been yeah admiring from far. These were my heroes. Were I got to know them. All and work with them. And and with With the magazine we used to. We did a thing called Foo- Metis which is basically a comic strip except not drawn. It's photographs so it's like making a movie. You have to go and shoot actors with costumes in locations except nothing think moves and we were doing those and it led to me looking for actors. Who could work for fifteen dollars a day and bumped into a group of English guys from Cambridge who are over there on the following on the coat tails of Beyond with French Asia exactly on the fringe was phenomenal. Phenomenal success of a show that started in Edinburgh at the the fringe fringe the Edinburgh fringe festival with Jesse knows well and she's been there worked. There performed there in later years but the a four fellows yeah put together a show that went to Broadway correct and Produced an original cast album. Which I memorized I hung on every word? Dudley Moore Peter Cook Jonathan Miller Lou Bennett and and John just just left us US short time ago. That is very sad because he made one of the versions of candied. The Bernstein musical the only only one. That's been good it's Well they are all multi talented settlement. I mean and and so funny so so very very funny if you've never heard that album beyond the fringe. Now it's I'm sure it's available on itunes or some form like that Boy I I gobble that up and listen to it over and over and over because the four of them were brilliant and they made such an impact in America that the the Cambridge footlights review Couple years later which included John. cleese Graham Chapman Eric Idle L. decided to come to New York and try to make it big. I'd like they that Peter Cook and Dudley had done and they failed and I found him performing in a little theater in the village and Got John to a pair in one of these humidity. And that's the beginning of a relationship developed into this other group of people. Wow so John John cleese is in a he's in a few medi and and ours were very satirical and this particular one is about a man who seem seem to have a an affair with his daughters Barbie doll we don't have that actual shot in it but apparently it was consummated somehow and it seemed to be totally prescient. Because all of John's subsequent waves have looked like Barbie dolls uh-huh and half of them have been American as well so these are funny times but John became friends and I went hitchhiking backing off around Europe. He went to work in Chicago actually for Newsweek magazine. And a couple of years later I had back in In England and I'm working in magazines I'm illustrating doing cartooning and I said John. Can you introduce lead. Somebody somebody in television I want to get out of this. And that's he did to producer who was producing a children's comedy show starring Mike Palin. Ah Jerry Jones and that was the beginning of Python my my my I wanna I wanna go back a little bit here so your ambition initially was to be a cartoonist. I'd I've never had a proper ambition. I just did what I could do. And Control as simple as that and And because piece of paper and a pen I can draw funny things that people laugh and take. I'm very clever feels good. That's why uh-huh Daddy. I'm nasty you a question is that. That's what turned you onto Terry in the first place is that because my dad also wanted to be a cartoonist. Oh yeah yeah absolutely. I was at the shrine of mad magazine. Like all baby boomers that I know exactly. And the thing about Matt's who is it was sort of quietly subversive. Oh yes and again I I have an. It's just announced the ceasing publication of new issues. So it was a little bit of Epitaph being written and spoken about mad in the past year and and that was the thing that a lot of people observed was that I guess no no one of the older generation seemed to get just how subversive yes and pointed at satire was us. We're using cartoon strips. And they were just they were dealing with the McCarthy hearings. They were dealing with totally political things. But in a a charming and very funny way see laughed and you didn't realize you're being indoctrinated into another wave looking at the world yes yes exactly. So so what made you d- Cap for England Well I went and the magazine eventually failed old and before it failed. I sent a note on headed Liz paper to the US army which I was in the National Guard at that point saying that I was being moved to a new office in Europe and could they transferred to Europe. This is doing the Vietnam War. Four and that's a tear up and hitchhiked around for six months. The magazine was dead but the army thought I was in Europe for a while and then I got to England and.

"Since i put a basketball down honestly i could relate at it almost like allows you to it's almost like allow allow you the hill more yes every single interview i asked them i guess they something i'm weird when we first got on the call i'm like i'm proud of this game may let's go are you ready i'm ready exactly because 'cause i i like i believe that storytelling killing you know it's almost as if it's almost like each call where either on the therapeutic if you're if they were just talking about life and just how we bounce back to this thing in in how like dang i went through a lion overcame it you know and you know i i've joked of some of my friends are even on twitter about the podcast the wrong name name of the podcast should have been sports therapy because that is literally what it is every conversation is is therapeutic and some of my guests will talk afterwards and they'll say oh my gosh i had forgotten about some of the stuff so if i overcame some of the things i went to but we we walk through those stories and then i i even have therapy in my dm's go get a gift certified something there's so many people reach out like oh man this episode touched me i was going through x y z but like you said it podcasting accident is therapeutic short and i love i love and it's so cool now that could like oh well you did you patasse last year so it's been a bit about a year it was may twenty eighteen okay very cool i think i thought about starting nine point one in january so in it just so cool to see how life in twenty eighteen i'm gonna hang rafi the punisher boys and they were all kind of ethnic i think we're getting the point where a lot of athletes are now are now are eight troopers turner say i'm tired of not having the narrative told the right way yeah 'cause there's there's only one story you know we hear in the mass media that everybody who quote unquote made i have air quotes around that you know some of the things that they deal with but there are so many other stories that people can really relate to and it's important this chair everybody's story everybody's stories power exactly i'm big wave that every up every i've had a critic of another after my journey and in in i think someone's gonna hear you're storing gonna think wow my my home in either but but i heard joy story she made it out you know drawing for mayor now now she's she went you went now if you've shooting coach she wrote a book you know now he's in another happy she really inspiring others and i could be that if i can do it if i can can come out of north saint louis and like you said wrote a book and podcast in coach and do things i never ever dreamed possible if i could do it trust me when i tell you anybody anybody if you such a monitor the same way you such a monster playing college sports are getting that degree you can do literally anything that you set your mind to if you focus on it and if you just put in the work you get it done if the mindset absolutely and i think it's so cool in your story because it's like an are called reno african americans all we all we are so the athletes music about it sometimes right and i said that's it and i'm not saying this is the fact that you are shannon light on how you're more than just know what the mainstream late labeled a fad they're showing showing other other young black girls or other minority grow the say hey you know like the labor the labor friday pushed when you it has to be story now you're doing yeah and i had a guest on my show who brought up some incredible points and talked about the fact that we don't see a of african american scientists star engineer's lawyers doctors in the media we literally sit down with the ball in their hand on michael cohen in their hand in as kids coming up with a sports music are literally the only way out and we we wanna play play on the team so we never considered things like being the engineer who who belsey apprentice that they plant rj there's other there's so many other options may be working you know in the front office for the mb are just so this week in literally do anything and it is so important to share stories with the people who have made because like you said that's not something that we see every day in art community innocent up on our phone every day on my own notes in now one of the reasons why i got indifferent not one because it was it was the summer of twenty seventeen were and where you see on the news like all these like killing you know on tv of african americans in our like they saw the copy so many kids out there that like like just young like just like young black boys in a story and i like buried and there's no there's no platform showing african americans know doing big thing basically at a more athlete or you see you see bp but that's another one narrow street sometimes you know we see each one has almost the narrowest reconditioned no love and hip hop and it's something wrong with that but it's like you know but like slightly why you love and hip hop is not good for anyone exactly you know so it's like what do you have a narrative so i'm so glad to have you on the in shannon narrative that if you can if later and that that is so real and i think of another reason why i think that the book and the podcast and everything started i love stephen a smith i love bsp and i love first tight end a lot of times you'll hear him talking about you know former players are current and players who get in trouble in he had this thing you know staff but we man all that kind of stuff whatever an we i and i i remember when you talk about you know how we see the stories of african american men being killed in that it seemed like this is all we hear an dan as much as i hate hearing those stories i also hate hearing the stories of just athletes are former athletes who make it a you know a a big time program i make it to the nfl and they just get in trouble or maybe a player who recently retired there's something in which they don't really understand what to do with this extra time they now have maybe they don't understand the magnitude of the opportunities that they have in front of them end we don't really prepare athletes for anything outside of the game day like we give them scouting report and i consider that as a coach you know be giving these scouting reports the government itinerary an we literally dictate their schedule you know for for years straight while their classmates are preparing to be young professional preparing to be accounts apparently engineers whereas athletes we just focus on the sports so much a lot of times when they get into trouble you know we criticize them we talk about them but we never adequately prepare athletes for the data their sport comes to an end and that's just another reason why i was like you know i gotta get this book out i gotta get this podcast because like you said people need to hear those stories in math and that's true because i quit i quit track my my my junior year per internship 'cause i like like you know like you know what am i going pro i just launched a conference last year by like a whole second in the hundred and that's a long time i wait let me go ahead and just hang it up but but i think to come down in the media doesn't wanna show athlete doing more because in you know like like the whole like stephen anything with the week thing no i'm sure they're athletes should not be doing that but what about these athletes better hosting camps the athlete better than having no news even their home out east in they are off not popular right they're not showing that because it it it it others they'll do it it's it's not as if i got more fan driven mm absolutely not one man i i mean i wouldn't be happy to come on you gotta have a show athletes like you that are doing stuff in the community that are showing that no one the ball stocks doesn't mean you're game stop however you get very game before you as you're as you're going with the look the the podcast you're going how how do you hope to advance what you're doing a community whatever maybe it might sound cliche shea but i think the cliches cliches for reason an i don't have the exact blueprint and i can't tell you from step one to ten how it's gonna happen but i want athletes to realize that hey you have more than just one game you can do more than just knock down threes and catch touchdown passes you should not peak at twenty one or twenty two years old i don't want you to be thirty five years old talking about oh i made all conference team freshman year we wanna look at my championship ring that's great that's wonderful i'm glad that you went hard i'm glad that you you know one championships but what you're doing now like what championships are you winning in life and i think it is so important to help athletes to redefine themselves into help them to do more and for awhile people have been thinking that oh it's about getting them jobs because oh they might have blinker as amazing might not have this have that had a job is not the end all be all we were not put on this earth to work and pay bills forty years in die like i want you to be able to have an impact outside of sport how're you gonna impact community how're you gonna are people how are we gonna use it's amazing skill set that you gained as being a d one athlete of playing pro are playing these two like how do you take everything that you learn in packing that together and look at your story and look at what you're passionate about an how do you how do you find that same rush that you had on the field in like that's what i really really wanna do i wanna help athletes to figure out what's next figure out their purpose because you're sports no matter how amazing it was that wasn't really no purpose and i hate to break it to you that was you're training ground that is where you gain the skills that you need to thrive in live so that's what i really want to give you a platform absolutely not i love that too because i love how you're saying all athletes you know it it it isn't just on the pro athletes we can we can all right what as a d one day to the jew code the any i we all have we ability to make a difference no matter what the status was.
"gilliam" Discussed on 9INE POINT Started With A Dream Podcast w/ Jacolby Gilliam
"On the nine point stroke the dream but guess what not point start drawing podcast goes stories avenue to the community that supports them by being cynical about these hey guys welcome back to the podcast and we hope to fall which colby gillam coming to you from a nice hot phoenix arizona this episode we have joy walker wicker oregon state coach joy skywalker in in she just like a very just chill down or personal you could tell by her story that it's not about her you know that she starting the journey of china figure out who she is who she is now she wants to give back the athlete can help and figure out who they are want the ball stops in this conversation with her about her journey through the thing that she battle you know from the lifestyle at home to a just figure out why after after after basketball to go into corporate america to work in the main jobs a ton of figure out that next chapter so great episode here with her who love her journey you love her advice and hopefully you really gained lot of value from it so let's get to it so george not everyone comes on when you're younger as an athlete when you're doing the gold you went to achieve oh my goodness i just had this this dream this vision of of a plane division one basketball that was all that i ever want to do this what i was obsessed with that's what i worked towards day in ann arbor dream about it i mean us but what the stuff basketball i was pretty bad but it was just it was really consuming and it took up my thoughts and everything i just had to play division one basketball sofer you know we all kind of habits de wondering like do you wanna like be be at the tone will be achieved you know young athletes sofer you y d one that was what i saw advertised i came along at a time when tennessee who is just rocking and rolling in that was the place to be in i remember being in fifth grade eight in my fifth grade teacher minister tie i used to be the audible is i could at recess can enjoy a good have you ever watch tennessee women's basketball and i was like well no i haven't i mean he said well they play this sunday afternoon evening check them out and i remember my first time watched the play because up until then i just watched mb and i hadn't really taken the time to to seek out arts of fine people who look like me you know who were playing an i remember after just watching them play that really just it just sit me down this path like i said i guess it was what i saw so that was really really what i had in the back of my mind i have to play division one basketball in waves of being like decorated yeah fifth great great so so at a at a fifth grader you have a dream of you know byu no tennessee high high profile basketball how did you think i want to achieve this dream just about putting in work and just by staying in the gym i definitely did not grow up in ideal circumstances so on top of really one of the plate d one basketball i always thought as my way out of saint louis i saw at an even when i was playing it was almost like heard another person talking about you know were playing more practice and we have in this built in therapy session practices like from one to three when you're caught and i had this built in just this scape from me basketball was a way to really just not only go to college and still my dreams but just don't really get out of my my current circumstances which like i said were not ideal at all so kind of going on that front of me out in the same boat you know like like me were like my like you like you like my my get away in a sense of confidence i knew our best and most people when it came to my sport where you start but you kind of delaware whether it almost than when you're when you're when you're in that our just like the world with 'perfect absolutely it was like it was just my way of the skate it was my way to get away from reality in a lot of the praise that a lot of kids it's might receive at home i didn't get that so i got it on the court and when i was in the court that's when i felt like i was special in my coaches would pour into may not remember my you know my teammates parents talking about oh you know you jump so hi are you do this are you rebound well my very first basketball camp i came in it was my first time playing organized boss i don't really know what i was doing but i came away with a trophy that was chairman of the board i just had a natural knack for just going in rebounding and finding the ball insecure in the bond is mounting extra possessions and like i said when i was on the court that was where i got that praised as kids you know we long for people told me that i was special you know they had a bright future and you get it to that attention you don't really realize it as a kid but now as an adult looking back i maybe we'll just see why i took basketball so i mean a lot of kids just play because it's fun but from the time i started playing basketball was much job that was my life i took it series and i i wanna be on that court twenty four seven acre why leonard said board man you're paid you know the as of off nothing lot of cases like i think it's so true what you said about the whole the like the the praise we we go off once you get it just like you you start like the ego just like stay in a more more low fresh w like just knowing where you want to be did the parade ultimately kinda give you that extra confidence the the know that you're on the path to achieving that dream absolutely because the more i listen to my coaches and the more i got in the gym and the more i put in worked better i got an intern and i'll definitely wasn't the best player on my first eighteen and i just like i said i just stayed in the gym i kept getting better and i was able to realize that it it got it was like i said it's like a drug and it really got worst me because the better i got you know the more attention nugget from college coaches and the more and you know in classrooms you might have the the teacher's pet but i was like the coaches because i was i was gonna go heart i was gonna do it head coach ask me do and it just it just continue to grow and grow and grow and like you said it just kept feeding that ego that an end so you're saying he he'd be ideal home circumstances so was your family supportive in the dreamer they just like it would you go and you go get it you know it it was it wasn't interesting situation my mom was a single mom so she worked really really hard in she made as many games as she could but she was a dancer so she had no idea what to do with his daughter who wanna play basketball she never played a sport in her life so she was definitely as supportive as she could be but my that wasn't around in our sort of thinking about this other day and it was in it's so funny how we go through certain things you know as teenagers and young adults and were just so locked in and focused that we don't really we don't really take the time to realize that are situation is it normal so i literally played four years of college basketball won two championships play d one did all of that in my mom had gotten sick at that point but i played four years of college basketball and never had either one of my parents had a single game wow that was just that which is my situation i don't think that was the case for any of my teammates i remember being a piper south carolina state and we will go up to baltimore down to florida and all over the country in i would see you know my teammates my parents at every tournament at the end like how do they even do that but i literally play like i said four years of college ball had senior night all that stuff never had now my grandparents were able to come but never had one of my parents at a single game after four years of college and it was it was definitely omay the train was definitely on me hey you made it happen yeah i had to i had to get it done had found a way in just kind of on on the fan part what what is it with them because they understand you're dream the the in they know how to support innocent well like i said my mom came to a lot of a lot of high school games i ain't you turned but she had gotten really really sick when i was in high school so she like physically couldn't come but my dad and i just didn't really have a relationship at that point though you know my my life and all you did like a like a like mama mama mama that every game but my dad never show up you know that thing they were you what is almost like i wanna make the job because you out 'cause i wanna know that or one hammer know that i did this without you type stuff i don't over think it was when i did it with out you i think think it was like i said that was a place where i received praise you know as kids you know you can't act like you're upset and all that other stuff but you just you really you long for somebody to tell you even if you don't wanna miss you opera somebody and say good job joy are i'm proud of you end because i got that from my coaches and i got that from my teammates trainers whoever i just was addicted to playing basketball to getting better and like i said when i was on that court court i didn't have to think about some of the stuff i had a deal with that home like not having a relationship with my dad or mom mom be really really sick i would literally get out of you know a game of practice in my teammates will be checking their phones and seeing a boot text text demo whatever i was checking my own seat my mom's in intensive care or if she was back in the nursing home or if she was back in the hospital so i just had a whole lot going on in basketball it was just it was my skate in when it was over i think that's why it was so tough because suddenly i had a deal with all of this stuff that i had never dressed up until that point in my life before and the the game ended like before you're done playing college where would you would look you're talking about this on what will be you're next after the game is a really really wanna play overseas amando wasn't gonna play w m b i wonder the play overseas but i had this really really open accounting mattress i had a really really good accounting professor an because i sort of knew i wouldn't go but i knew i wasn't going pro but i had a really good accounting professor and he happened to be a tax attorneys and cpa's and he really took me under his wing i really enjoyed this class is even though they were the hardest lessons i ever took but i sort of want it took a little down on his path not talk to him about law school and about getting my sepia license so once i finally i went through this dark stage right not been able to find a job and i like this but once i was able to bounce back ain't get a job i did create a vision for myself had this great five year plan where i was gonna get my masters and accounting get my seat license in become a tax attorney but if you ask me today i'm not a tax on it i don't have my cpa's license so you see how that turned out numbers man like i am accounting class in dallas i barely made it will be it.

"gilliam" Discussed on On Point with Tom Ashbrook | Podcasts
"Well, Dorothy Butler Gilliam joins us today from Washington her new memoir is titled trailblazer. A journalists fight to make the media look more like America. She's a veteran reporter former editor and columnist at the Washington Post. She also served as the president of the national association of black journalists and of unity journalists of color Dorothy, Butler Gilliam, welcome to on point. Thank you so much. It's a pleasure to be here. Mega. That's it's a great pleasure to speak with you. Thank you. I wonder if you could just sort of start off by telling us the story of you know, of was journalism, something that you kind of always warned to be when you grew up or how did you get into it? It was not my focus when I was in high school or even when I finished college. In fact, I thought I was going to be a children's lawyer. And and that I think. Shows how much I wanted to advocate for for people. But what happened was I was seventeen years old. I was attending Ursuline college in Louisville Kentucky, and I had the opportunity to work after my classes as a secretary for the local black newspaper called the Louisville defender and one day, the editor Mr. Stanley came in and told me I want you to go substitute for the social editor or the society editor because she's out ill. And I was shocked, but I wanted to take the chance, and I went out, and I started writing these stories with the society page. I'm the daughter of a minister, and I did not know about black coat society. Wasn't a very large group in Louisville Kentucky. But it was just. Interesting to see how by covering them. How journalism kind of instantly opened me up to new worlds? So this was another world that I had not known existed. Well, so sorry to interrupt here. But, but I just want to ask you as you were saying, so this was a, you know, a black newspaper in Kentucky at the time. Yes, it was what rule did did those particular newspapers play in the black community in that era. Those newspapers played a very important role one of the most important roles. They played was during the years before nineteen fifty four and the desegregation of schools, or at least the the court ruling on the desegregation of schools because they would spend a lot of time in the Sigara gated south writing stories about what was happening. They were really going behind the. Cotton curtain that the white newspapers were not paying any attention to and the the black news news men on mostly men. They would have to slip into these areas in the south at night. Sometimes they would often have to wrap their old portable typewriters in in clothing that looked as though they were they had clothing. So because the police would would did not want the stories that they were writing to be told across America. So the first black newspapers started way back in actually the eighteenth century, but their their crucial role was doing that pre civil rights movement when they went places that white newspapers and white reporters didn't know about and didn't want to go. Oh, interesting. Okay. So then so then tell us. Little bit more about where your career moved. After that. I'm thinking particularly of when you worked as a reporter at the tristate defender in Memphis. Yes, what happened at that point? I wanted to finished Lincoln university in Jefferson City, Missouri. I was interested in going to white newspaper for some reason that that seemed to be the right move to make because you know, it was kind of the big early beginnings of the civil rights movement and Martin Luther King junior was encouraging black people young black people to go into white corporations..
"gilliam" Discussed on All In with Chris Hayes
"But but I wanted tie this conversation backup with the conversation. You just hit with joy Beto, Stacey and Gilliam mayor mayor Gilliam, they are the are part of the Obama continual. Right. And and to sort of part of the dean Obama continuum this ideal of we need to expand the electorate and enjoy was spot on too often. In those states, we've seen, you know, Democrats try to run a thousand Democrats run races where they talked to try to win over Republican voters. Right. And last time, you know in Georgia. We lost my two hundred thousand votes trying to do that in this time around it is very much the Obama continuum. How can we expand the electric into Tom's point? You know bringing? Younger voters bringing in more diverse electric that was our key to victory for Obama. But somehow that has gotten lost in the midterms. But what you see with these candidates? I do put them squarely in the Obama continuum is ideal that we're going to not try to win over all of these Republican voters, but we're going to expand the electorate and bring more our voters into the process, which is very different strategically. Although to to to that point, Tom, I mean year invoke this lot, right? It's easy to say. We span the electorate doing it heart. It is hard to turn on voters and voters it's harder turn infrequent voters into frequent voters in terms of the data from early voting. There's a question about are you cannibalizing your vote or do you see evidence in a place like Georgia, Texas, the you're actually getting new voters? What is what is what do we know? In terms of that, you know, that's a big lesson learned from twenty sixteen twenty sixteen. You saw Democrats getting quite excited about their early vote and showing really strong numbers for Hillary Clinton. And in the end it turned out that a lot of that early vote. Absolutely was just cannibalized election day, it thinks one more Republican. And so that's what we've been paying closer attention to. We've looked at the early vote through today in those thirty five million plus votes, and what we're seeing in. What's really, the most striking thing is the number of new voters who are coming out. We're talking about millions of. Of of new voters just where you are in Texas. We're talking about half a million people voted in Texas who have never voted in any election before you don't see that sort of thing happened in the midterm election. You're seeing the same thing happened in Georgia in Florida in Nevada in Arizona. It's really unprecedented and Cornell that to me, that's the big the reason there's so much expense about tomorrow night. And the reason I think the range of outcomes is so wide. We don't know who those people are we don't we don't know what that Alexis going gonna look like, but you hear half a million new voters, what is going to election day and a lot. There's a lot of possibilities from our night. Well, happily knew that doesn't happen in mid terms. And that's why ideal what is the likely voter. And I said this on your air is is a pollster. But I think we're going to get a lots of prizes tomorrow because because what we think is historically a likely voter and that would taking account and our and our models. You know, that's not true in half a million new voters. In texas. That means you know, what that means. That means a polling there in Texas, probably not picking up all those those those new voters because they're not traditional light traditional likely voters, and that to me is Beddoes path with victory there in Texas again that I'll bomb a continuum expand the electorate. Tom. There's also the fact that early voting has expanded generally. Right. So we're seeing new numbers and part of that just to be able to Apple's right is that it seems that that both the habit of early voting, and there's more places offering that between say now in twenty four teen. That's right. You have to look at at at at the the laws in the laws have changed on some places. They've actually made it hard harder to early vote places like North Carolina and Ohio for the most part they have. But so that's why we're generally looking not just at the RAI increases..
