"godfather" Discussed on Cut To Black: A Sopranos Sitdown
"It's not like even if it was good it would still not be like it's fucking inspiration on how to make films as the same way that you know. The first film is to me. And i mean they do have an upcoming tv show Although it is this show at least is based off of the making of the godfather which is better than the idea of. I'm sure we're still not far behind of them. Doing like the godfather for or some sort of continuation. Like what was the corleone family open to in the nineties. What were they doing when stranger things going on the paramount plus doing a show called the offer which is about because we went into a little bit of some of the behind the scenes and it does seem like there's ripe with drama and stuff there One person who was cast who will not be a part of the series anymore is army hammer. I don't know if you're familiar with him. He played the wink. Loss twins in social network. And he's been under a lot of scrutiny for being I guess king shamed if you will. He's he likes to role play being a cannibal or something. There are some some text messages that were leaked but he also could be harassing in assaulting people as well so He did get he has dropped from. Tv show the offer us supposed to play producer albert ruddy who. I'm not that familiar with honestly But no longer armie hammer on the offer. Interesting yeah i i wasn't looped and revelations i mostly remember him from While he's obviously there was a time when he was shoved down. Our throats is like leading man. Wasn't they're kind of like army hammer and like he was in the lone rash laundering in he was iliad. Karekin in the man from uncle which i watched the original man from uncle so i was like. Oh my god. I can watch the new film. Yeah interesting get into that in more detail actually looking at it because albert rutty. It's based on his book so he's probably going to be the main character then so the you go Make sense. That's something we'll have to check in on the show. I hope the shows good. I hope it's like You know. I i i i give them props for not just doing. Hey let's do godfather tv show and just making a gangster show. At least they're thinking a little bit with it and we're like well let's make something on the making of it. Let's option this book with some of these stories behind the scenes. Hollywood stuff plus we get to play with an iconic property without being like this. Is michael corleones grandson or granddaughter. Now she is a woman in in the criminal underworld and how everything that that entails. Yeah i we don't need to like on this film. I think we've pretty much covered what we want to say about it. I i do want to say i know. This is a sopranos podcast. But i appreciate everyone sticking with us as we go bit broader into some some films and media that have inspired the sopranos and even inspired the sopranos characters. Because obviously we see people on the show. Quoting these Lines and such. But upcoming we're definitely going to have a few more james gandolfini films for you and the many saints in newark finally will be arriving at some point.
Impeachment: American Crime Story Tells Monica Lewinsky's Side of the Clinton Scandal
"Crime story impeachment which come on september seventh if i if i run my dates correctly. Here's my big takeaway from the abundance of trailers at they have released for this in the last three weeks. Really like quite a push. So and i think i'm starting to get the feeling like this is going to be an american story o. Oj simpson moment. Where i think we're going to revisit a lot of the stuff from the clinton impeachment monica etc. But i have a question about all these trailers. We still haven't gotten a significant amount of time with clive owen. His bill clinton which leads me to believe. They're either sitting on marlon brando in the godfather level performance or marlon brando. Doctor moreau level performance. Like it's it's going to be one or the other that is definitely a take and you may right. I choose to think about it slightly differently. Which is they have two things one. It's very very hard. I mean presidential performances especially in this era are almost uniformly imitations right and it's distracting to be like oath. He's just like bill clinton. Yeah whatever Falco place. Hillary clinton like i think it was a smart move to minimize them in the trailer because immediately becomes about. Wow clive owen. Doing a great job being bill clinton sure in it's distracting from the show. They wanna tell. I think the second piece of it is the from my understanding of it. The reason to tell the story about something that you know obviously isn't fresh and a lot of people's minds but i for people of our age our generation certainly is. Is it for. Sarah paulson to win more awards. That's going to happen. But i think it's more to tell the story of the monica lewinsky and linda tripp and people who were actually the prime movers of this. That shook the firmament that the much larger figures were resting

Paddington 2 Breaks a Rotten Tomatoes Record
"I am going to be taking a look at films. That for whatever reasons audiences just either didn't connect with or simply just didn't enjoy them as much as the critics did and there is a lot that separates the opinion of critic and the average moviegoer as the average moviegoer is really just looking for an experience. That is enjoyable and entertaining and on the other hand. A critic is essentially going into a film with a checklist of things to look for and in order for a critic to consider a film good. It really has to satisfy a lot of preconceived notions so as we will see in the next segment. It is very hard for critics to see eye to eye on a film in fact it is pretty much impossible to do. So but one exception to that rule was believe it or not. The film paddington to when that film i came out in theaters in two thousand seven enjoyed the longest period of time where a film on rotten tomatoes had both one hundred from the critics and the audience. Now time that has changed it now has an audience rating score of eighty seven percent which is still incredibly high for rotten tomatoes but probably the most surprising thing about that movie is it still has a one hundred percent rating from critics and for those of you wondering if you have this film confused with something else nope. It's the film about a teddy bear with rain coat and a little red hat. That film is rated higher than the godfather and citizen kane.

"All welby. Welcome to bigger pockets. Podcasts man at the often have here. I appreciate it man. I can't even believe i'm here. They can got so much for this opportunity for sure man. Well let's dig into your story. Let's go to the very beginning. I know you went in real estate and several phases so to the very very beginning. What was your first venture into real estate. Investing my first venture in the real estate. If i could maybe go back a little bit of mind my first idea of ever being in real estate is when i was about maybe seventy eight years old. I was living in the projects in brooklyn where my parents my family and my godfather he was doing pretty good for himself what he would come and visit us and you would always have these nice fancy causing dress. Nice and later on us. When i found out an understood that he was in real estate he owned one or two properties yet his own brokerage and stuff like that and i would be able to go visit him in the suburbs of long island and i was always intrigued by the fact that i was able to ride my bicycle in the middle of the street versus where we would live in that. We couldn't do things like that. From that point when i understood that that's what he did was in real estate. I knew that some way somehow somewhere in my life i was going to be involved in real estate somehow so fast forward my first time actually purchased them our first home in real estate sometime around two thousand and four is when i purchased my first home. Was that the house for yourself to live in. No actually. I live in new york and i decided to buy a multi unit in atlanta. And this is right where subprime mortgages were going crazy and as long as you had a pulse you'd be able to get a mortgage so i was able to get a mortgage hundred and six percent financing so didn't really come out of pocket. Anything and i was able to acquire a four unit building and from the day. I bought it. It was a disaster from the day aboard.

"Godfather's Pizza, which I've said many times the worst pizza I've ever had in my life, but just another very high profile individual who has dead of eight of Corbett and your This is not going to stop here, believe me. Okay, well, another record state has broken another record for the number of co bit related deaths in a single day, 189 yesterday, the second day in a row and the fourth time this month, breaking one of those single day records. It's the only thing wrong with all of this information we're getting is AH That people thought this was going to be the second wave coming in. I think we're still on the first We are on the they Marie, not be a second wave. Is this like opposing first? Well, it certainly looks to you for a very long time. Even Fauci has said, because social distancing is not being recognized. It is not being followed, and there's mask on mass people. Ah or unmasked people walking around and bars and people hanging out together. I said, weren't a world of hurt that's going to happen. So he also just said he suggest, if you ah maybe would wear goggles or other kinds of eye protection now. Listen, when I go to the grocery store, I do wear sunglasses. You I don't know if that helps, you know, but I don't know how it's entering the body. I want to carry my eyes right? And might I don't want to touch my face. So I have my gloves.

So this pandemic rules They really didn't apply to me. I was already doing that stuff. You know, then you've got a better chance than most not getting caught. Home. Okay, This this story is really I think the only thing we can really take away from this story is there's a lot of evidence that around 25% or so of patients with Cove it have some kind of neurological damage as well. They're trying to figure out exactly why there's a couple of theories about it..

"The one whole knocks breaking bad reference. Wow what a scene. That was fucking satisfying. I ate up. Every erection in the room was good to see how they all linked up with. Clemenza and tessier. Desio it was. It was nice to say because like by the time we say them in the first godfather they're just like old duties like and we're like yeah. Whatever like you know. We don't care about you. But they were the genesis like how. How cute was it? So you had their little hijinks in their little misadventures so when they first encountered the dawn and the don like. I've heard that you've been selling shit and it's early natural that you just. GimMe two hundred dollars. 'cause it sounds like a choice. It's like you could give you two hundred dollars. I'm not going to tell you what the repercussions are. But your mother's GonNa feel it. You know what I mean. And he's like yeah and it was. It was just it was so masterful and it was so giddy and it will so satisfying to watch reader tell tessier and Clemenza. Hey give me fifty bucks. We're GONNA get one fifty and I'm going to tell him this is all we have. And then he didn't even front his fifty to a hundred and I just I feel like I really love the way it was done in this film and maybe films now have to should go back to this. There was violence. There was there was shootings in this. But they weren't fucking gratuitous. I didn't see a full on zoomed in Pitcher of your guts falling out of your stomach like at some point. You don't really need to see that. Like where we say. Veto stopping the dawn back in Kalyani. He the way he stabbed him was was gruesome enough. You know what I mean like. We didn't need to see every inch of Pixel Ation. You know in that bleeding. Sort of sequence. Unless it's like deadpool when he's trying to dodge the bullets that's what one of the things I fucking love But I really. I really like the way that the fight scenes all the violence order scenes. Were Done I. It comes to a point where people are like I want more. I want more realistic. I wanted this. I wanted that but the way the way that Don Vader died in the godfather it was so unexpected. Where I'm like. Hey they didn't make a big deal out of that. Is this real because usually when you watch a movie it becomes such a big moment. You know what I mean. I kind of appreciated that. It didn't really do it like that in this movie but it's kind of like the new trend well the recent trend Rhonda You know there's there's there's a build up there's a sad scene that happens in this music and that becomes very effective but it was very refreshing watching this and when people died they fucking died right. That's just how it be saw so I. I really appreciated the layers that we had and the Godfather to is a perfect pairing one hundred percent the Godfather one the godfather to is I. Katie energy from the four year reference. Podcast And I guess the Godfather three is if we decide to bring another host on permanently. Okay I just WANNA capture off with a couple of characters that I really enjoyed In this and if some if some of you will like hang on a second we have almost nine hours of film time. How the fucking you capture it in one hour. Well fuck off. I never really imagined Though we would have covered All of the films in this episode and it might be just a nice little like we can have like a another little conversation after this but I definitely wanted to pay respects for the Godfather trilogy on the Foyer Reference. Podcast because it's been long enough I not to cover it. So let's talk a bit more about Santana and also top. Who loved Sony? He made any rational dawn just because his angang led his decisions most of the time. Yeah she reminded me of cassava from narcos. 's Yeah he was very effective in what he did but he's definitely not someone. You would want a leader. He would have been the buffet sort of to us. He for Michael. Apparently James Ken. Act of the play. Sunny felt like there wasn't enough character dimension to him and he claims that he had forty five minutes of his screen. Time being cut from the movie. Wow would there be more you wanted to know from sunny likes I. Neither a lot. Sun Brighten the room. If you'll pardon the products a lot how he cared you know the system uh will being beaten up all the time but someone he introduced to me. `Let amount in petit so for the. I think he took sort of responsibility and win. A bit up and sort of the stove is downfall because guide just putting up with the families And they took sunny died in such a brutal brutal way. Sunny did what needed to be done without question and I guess his death was important to Michael because he had less. He had less of a support network to rely on because it would have been too easy for his rise to eminence if he had sunny around Because you have Tom. But he's not muscle and the positive thing. His colleague Gary for for for wartime they show on Italian not oh his heels more perfect news all peaceful and it could focus on his sort of Biz next business type rather than focusing how to retaliate or how to get the enemy. Get a win over the enemy. Yeah and I'm rubber divall. Who Plays Tom wasn't in the third movie? And apparently over contractual Sort of payments. Because he wanted to get paid as much as the other styles. Ooh Yes so but what that means is like full for US especially. Tom Was a very beloved character and to not have him. Comeback in the third film was kind of a slap in the face. Introducing his wife and son fucking those shit but the sun looked like him. Don't you think yeah sort of and rubber divall kind of reminded me? Oh Michael Bolton got wanted to him and double denim on a desert sort amount to just make sense no having in there it didn't know especially the sort of rule played in the foster son. Just strong unit. Yeah even when Michael is giving out multiple times you must just go to Vegas with your wife and mistress and San. He's like how many times must tell you how should I prove myself that I am loyalty And for him to just be raised from the THAAD movie overwork money when they made so much. Anyway it's actors like Robert. Avowal would have got much money. No but why not just close to what you say. You're coming from his point of view saying that he should have just done it. No giving US money because he was inmates. All the time in the first and second one heels in almost all the scenes like unless is dead. It makes no sense that he's not doesn't yeah it doesn't it just made less of a. I don't know it felt like Michael. All devolve all support and they try to make the sister be there but off really apparently Kepala sister. Oh Yeah and she didn't want her being in it because according to him she was too pretty to play a part of the family and she also plays in rookie. If you're welcome speaking of Arkansas Sylvester Salon Also audition for this and he didn't get it of course it's a talking rule out. It's not called the grunts through the whole three hours. That's your hill to die on. I'm just spouting out random facts just trying to get it into the episode before we end I do Honda. I genuinely wonder if anyone can add for Godfather Three I. I don't think it's stopped. Baden I don't think it's bad. I literally had to sticky tape. My Eyes Open as I think when you when you sort of see whatever they're trying to do or achieve thought one especially in terms of Michael's storyline then it's sort of makes sense but why why do this It's like a bad boys episode. Like why do you need to do this? Sir? Many yeahs late Obviously the office is saying why they did it. I just I didn't care for it. Colo also mentioned that. The third movie isn't necessarily closing off the trilogy it's also an epilogue after the first and second field and it's like semantics mother fucker. It was to talk last seen in in poetry. Assassination attempt on Michael and it hates Michael's daughter Yep it is quest to finding redemption. I guess the most Michael could get in suffering not dying because I initially thought this would all land in Michael Dying. Because that's the only way this sort of move is go anyway. You know this is what happens. Part OF THE GAME. These are the ramifications of being piloted. Came before someone who Michael didn't really show that much emotion and stuff was quite quiet and re reserves sort of expressions and for him to witness the daughter being killed and for him to scream like a banshee not really because the shocking in the people's faces in the way this is like oh. Wow who could get a reactor like this from Michael? Yeah I guess I'll teammate. Sort of suffering which I think besides that some filmed Grad Shit. I didn't care about that right. I didn't care for The third movie was just the big. Why everyone fucking looked exhausted even though I like looking at a fresh face. Jerry Montana I I didn't need to say it like I get it. There's a cycle. It's a dog. Eat Dog world. You know people rise to Eminence people take out other people so they can rise to eminence like I get it. They didn't really offer anything new in the third one for an and the only reason why I wanted to have a little bit of a discussion is because I would love to hear people's thoughts if they felt like this was the cherry on top of the Pie not definite Jerry. More likely reason in an unwanted them we love. Raise the wrong cake. How would you even tell in a round cake? I think it's more like a chocolate chip cookie. And you gotTa Raisin in it or you've had some seriously edelman concentrated Ron Kato. My fate cake again. You have to eat the feed geic to know how body tastes okay. So it hasn't been mentioned on a couple of episodes so you'd take qualm to my prison panty business. But YOU'RE A K. With from fate cake on this episode of The lion's den or shark tank Tell us who will you would invest in. Whose business idea would you invest in? Definitely not the godfather three. I'll tell you that much for free right I fucking care for what was the fucking point. Wow you're really going to leave me hanging. Yup I guess that's what they did a number three.

"Michael's trying to find who was trying to assassinate him and the inside man that maybe the made it possible for someone to shoot up his house in his bedroom. You know and he had all these thoughts could be your spouse until he found out he was his actual fucking brother was they'll be couldn't get over of course and that is brother to say that he's jealous because you spas to over his pasta because he's a fucking joke. Oh yeah he doesn't take anything seriously. He doesn't take giving formerly fast. He was arguing with Michael in front of all of people trying to support some losses name. Oh yeah record. Walgreen could does when you're in that sort of system and that sort of environment you need to know your fucking place you need to know formally fast above all else. Yeah even if it even is fucking disagree. Do she beyond goals place. F- y'all tease. That's a three hundred reference. But let's I just wanted to make a general note at least on the first and Second Godfather and then we can get into characters and for the way you are into the actual plot of the movie. I just wanted to mention The first one I found it hard to Cape because anything in anything I have problems. Establishing characters So when you present like twenty different characters to me in the first half and hour of a film I struggle as as on struggle street so I was really struggling to understand who was who and it really dampened. The emotional not emotional but the payoff and the meaningful actions of assassinating certain characters in the first movie but the good thing is this is a movie that you can watch again and again and it will continue to give you layers upon upon layers off for sure. So that's not necessarily a qualm. It just kind of got in the way of me enjoying it but the strength of the second film is all of the build up. And all of the setup that happened in the first film right It is a glory. It is a shoulder that it is stepping on in order for it to completely you know bring us into a world that we want to stay live and bathe in the son of offer because now we know why should care about Don. Vito and why it was in New York a nine year old kid like you were in your whore earlier like you know. I definitely wanted to know more about vader and his because everyone loves the underdog like love to he. How someone has made it like yeah. It's cool that you're successful. But we want to know how you got there because life is fucking hard and it will kick you in the teeth and you'll t for fall into your ass I'm pretty sure that's tongue in private. Come and fight me But it is and it's interesting to see you know that tantalizing character development that we see with vetter Don vitre if you're Nesta so it really helps to shape out The characters you know. You've talked a lot about Mike. Mikey Michael So let's dive a bit more into his character. I'll Pacino who who? I really feel bad that I I didn't get to see Pacino in the light that I should have seen him in. Wasn't he in the Adam Sandler movie where he was talking about Cappuccinos Pacino's And you know and and Robert Deniro should not be witnessed as a fuck like it should be in the godfather but it depends on when robot. Jesus dropped you on the earth and you were born right But man fucking man like the near Al Pacino. Like they really legend forever. Yes true true about interesting thing. Is the reason why we started watching golf. Have you matching them? There isn't a godfather was mind. Will I was listening to ask slogan Andrew. The host was talking about how he was watching Godfather and he came upon how Pacino just became louder as he did. He did Rolls off to the Godfather especially an Irishman it was just all schaudies a million decibels in so he plays the sleep room. He'd Eddie was so fucking active so I don't know man like I don't know if your alleged you can do whatever the fuck you want. And that's that's that's the thing is another garbage person's going to tell Al Pacino. Hey mate totally it down a bit. You fucking anything. Yeah it's fucking all Patino. We like. Thanks coming sacrifice my first crew. Yeah I guess sort of sacrificing to pay for being the successful. I'm being the good in your like as long as you're not a garbage person and you're not doing dodgy stuff in your personal life. If you're fucking legend you can do whatever the fuck you want. I will ignore or just smile when I see you in things that you probably shouldn't be in You know we understand the way the world works and you need to get some money but let legends. Let legends lie whether it's out of complacency or whether it's out of retirement let legends live But Michael is a character was very interesting. He was very forthright and I really appreciated that. Like the first time that we actually see him is when he's with K. at the sister's wedding And he he outright to decay by that does all of this fucking Shit right angels people. Yeah I don't do it. And my dad doesn't Yeah so K. Was well aware fast. She was very well aware and then even when they drifted off and he had a whole wife in Sicily and then he came back and reunited with Kay he said. Hey I'm working for my dad. Now what else? What else does a coronation of the Mafia mean when you were working for your father? Eventually he's going to die. And when you have two very solid to ICEES sonner and also Tom and you have a useless fucking on freighter. Then you know the you're about to step off right had to is. She could definitely see that. That was the case. And then somehow you know obviously stuff that happened in their marriage and she's definitely in everything fucking but also lady where you'll fucking getting into like. Why is it a surprise that he's doing these dealings and the Pathak sort of thing? Michael called is naive. Oh yes because she's exactly. Are She assumed? People in power politicians senators didn't do anything. Oh Yes yes yes it stinks in the spotty. Dna Age that you fucking politicians taking cut even think about who she is carried away. She is not. She's not okay but campaigns on people. Yeah it's Blahdy Blahdy fucking ridiculous and she knows exactly washes getting into Michael Taleh. Ooh I'm this good possum. I'm just dilling. I'm just handling papers from father. There was a point where he said. I will let you ask once. And when she auks he said no but he gave the answer that she wanted yes she knew she knew she knew she just wanted head and like this is this is a bit to date for a podcast episode. Maybe like a Patriot on one. But when she outright and he said that she got an abortion like she was trying to get a rise out of him off sheep why. She's very confident in his love for her. Because fuck man. I was worried for her life to. He's like he had this burst of energy and he pushed her. But that was it really Like she was really trying to hurt him and to the point where I asked you. Do you think this is brave? Just and I said why no birth she exists in the realms of birth She definitely dollars. Yeah but Michael was a very interesting character and I think you know. The most efficient sort of leader is the leader. That doesn't really indulge in his leadership. Sorry all her Fox right at the first song case. We don't like it. Some people get fucking offended just over a comment like that like if this is what cancels out both cost. Then go hit man. I'm talking about these specific characters. Whatever but yes like interesting interesting like he never like you said even when They went into Vegas and freighter had given him the whole Glitz and Glamour given him the whole Vegas experience with goes gambling. Whatever his I get this fucking shit out tomorrow morning just let me rest right and those are kind of the best leaders to have Like you might have instances with Pablo Escobar and he has like a exotic sued but like the the needs to be some sense of leadership where it isn't too indulgent in in in the path of destruction self-destruction rather Agreed and and I think one of the things that also Michael is sort of struggling to get was a partner who would be right to die. I'm surprised that like Michael lasted that long to be honest. 'cause he didn't he didn't really respect the rules of the old world So I I really thought people were going to come off Dan. People walk. Come into Walk coming up to him. That problem thing is is smart. But he's an old like he was literally Geriatric Age by the time we saw him and Godfather three like he survived quite a long time because he got rid of all his enemies sure even when they had rented and fled the country. Taking hyman Roth one to a different country to get just say random. He'd given up just do his life dying peace but no mate. Once you've crossed Michael. You're his enemy. You have to go doesn't matter. Yeah so he killed off all his enemies does all come after him. He knows when someone wants to kill him his smart enough well. The interesting thing is even with high men. He was talking about the game. Is the game Like when his friend died that Michael Walgreen thank you? He did question it because it wasn't business so he was hoping that. Michael would feel the same way. We'll just turn away from the death. That hyman set up four Pens Agila Jelly. But the thing has been it's a business when they in the wrong. Oh when the fucked up. Yeah but any other time. It's all your body's your family of codes and Shit you think they didn't follow the they didn't really respect the curb when it's didn't suit them. I guess or as a more just Michael no Michael Justin Gig care for the code. Sure Michael. Oh these man he. He took up a whole families. It's a mess effective thing together. Get rid of enemies and who come. After you coppers maybe but then again you run pretty much. The state enemies within our team And isn't that the most painful a betrayals yeah. I don't think we really saw semblances way. Michael actually got to rest on his laurels so to say and actually enjoy being the Godfather And I also felt instances of that with Marlon Brando at like literally. The first scene is him doing business during his daughter's wedding. It seemed like the didn't get a break every single time. Everyone just wants something from me. Yeah Yeah you you're walking talking. People are coming for deals. Felt like our own soaking wet dream the L. They could have been more walking if well in the wedding scene. Those plenty of walking and talking to hand gestures count calories. Let's let's lay some respectful Marlon Brando. Interestingly enough I'm Al Pacino boycotted the Academy Awards ceremony. He was annoyed that he was nominated for best actor in supporting role when he actually got more screen time than modern brander. Yeah well what do you think because it might also be a discussion of seniority? But even that's not right is it? But wouldn't you think godfather the titular character in the first godfather was Marlon Brando. Right. It was pollen Brenda. But then he had feels that he didn't get the leading you to really know when you you against Brunner on the fucking performance ad. He himself quoted the awards because of the portrayal of native Americans. Wow we're just GONNA boycott on your boycott. Hey I'm just gonNA to show you. The sort of possum Marlon Brando was well. Let me add onto your Marlon Brando. Apparently the cat that he has in the same wasn't a part of the script and he found out on the paramount and the cat was having such a good time. It's purring was so loud. They had to loop over the audience while really right. Yeah but yeah. Let's let's talk about Marlon Brando. Because I don't know if you talk about the first God follow like how many TV shows how many movies like impersonate his heart. I did that ethically fuck off. We should have done when I my wisdom tooth out. I would have sounded more accurate. We'll get mugged pies flying all around now. Stick you being called meeting season. How do you think we get our money? How do you think the bills the electricity stays on earth so we have the very iconic line? I'm GonNa make him an offer. He can't refuse which I said. Perfectly if you want to go back to the start of this episode And this came in at number two of the top one hundred movie quotes from the American Film Institution. Right BEHIND GONE. With the winds. Frankly my dear I don't give a damn inches so it's interesting and it's tantalizing and it's very interesting and again it's one of those things just like.

"Lot of people? I don't know I think Lou I'm not talking about how because we I read I read. tolkien's books before even watching of the rings. So Lord of the rings definitely fell short up for me because I got myself by my sixty minutes. Don't get me wrong. Lord of the Rings. You have three movies. Which are just bloody brilliant. The third one kind of falls short a bit. It's bad by any means imagination. It's just as good at the fast too. Which has to go continuation between the two that be replicated or so the theranos always on the back foot not regardless especially after what sixteen blotter years so we cannot compare those in terms of how it was struck house reading with a lot of the rings because I think lots more superior in terms of strength as a trilogy is a trilogy not not not the Fos to not taking any substitutions anything as a trilogy. Think stand with my man Tolkien on this Gu. I love how Muffin actually translates to do it. In the ASS on brand in the four-year reference podcast. We just tried to look up. Vafa love Google all doing the hand as you have to do justice to point to come out properly we do and the sprinkling of Italian listeners. not as regular as one dedicated. Spanish this but I do apologize in whatever form of Italian. We might have offended But if we said it correctly then that's because we're part Italian right for sure. Ot Kalyani other so so. It felt super iconic. When you I watch you. How did it feel now? Oh I think I go more from the foster than I got when I washed it. I think the third one. Just be more distant. I appreciated more now than I did before. Yeah so I kinda like because I wasn't even really young and I think it just left an impression me because I think the Fos- sort of movie that I watched that some was Italian sort of Italian well. This is very loosely dialing because he was based off our capone and in the untouchables and then I watched it Godfather. S- coffees and then I think are scuffles finished godfather series and I just fell in love with with the sort of culture so much so their culture's so fucking reach me And it's something that you feel authentic. Maybe it's more of the day brought to you by Earthy Kalaiana tensor day or on here. What wow did I I just loved re watching these movies again and I think that maybe a few years will redo this again. It's what's deserved. It's definitely what's deserved. It comes as no surprise. I have not watched The Godfather Trilogy even the First Godfather so this was the first time. Watch for me But we we literally set it off the right way that we should. We had a very delicious very modeled steak cooked to perfection by not truly We had the deepest darkest most tannin EST of gloss averted wine. Maybe more than one gloss if you nest And we put on the Godfather Trilogy and here we all. It really was an event to behold getting into my first impressions. I will say Having it's similar to like Lebowski not in that sense but just that you know I've I've watched many byproducts so many movies I pay Mosh to the godfather that I kind of already understood references before I even watch the movie. That's more what I mean right so I didn't expect to have depth. I didn't expect to have so much story because it was really just all the film. Burs like splashing. How fucking good. The Godfather is right. So I really liked. That they will lay is there was Not necessarily nuance. There was definitely no subtlety in these films. But I really really enjoyed it Like I mentioned after we watched the First Godfather. It is a pivotal cornerstone in modern cinema. Offer show what's on phones show. Let's pack up pack up and walk to the other room because we're dancer. Oh but it's fucking great. I do not careful the godfather three. I guess we'll see We just might conveniently run out of time when it gets to go for the three but the Godfather and the godfather to they a- sirs symbolic in nature. Anyway where you felt like the first godfather might have lacked if if ever I'm not saying you did You know the Godfather to made up for that and they really had this. Reciprocity between the two films I really don't. I regard them as one entity. Godfather One godfather to yes and the best part of it was after finishing watching godfather part. One does like Kumba leave. I just wanted I just it's crazy. It's a great movie by just wanted to know how dunk holy go into power. Just want to know who was that. Who unless you was just Robbie hands? Just okay stay with me you gotta get it in ten vols you to appreciate what they do in God for the to hey if ot and rubbing in tenfold is in the equation. I all in friends and lovers. Boao brilliant brilliant. I've ever seen a sequel soul strong as godfather too. But you know what like off the yeah's and yes and yes of the most respected friends and lovers or the most revered of sinophile saying the Godfather to is better than Godfather one. I would say not all. Let's say not is I are funny thing is that was my stance before we watching before we were watching the Godfather trilogy and boy did he changed my mind. The Fos the pot one car father. Yes fucking amazing. It was great. It was fucking great. It was brilliant. It was obliged brilliant. And the fuck that a hard to Imedi rethink made me realize my thoughts my opinions on what I thought was superior in Godfather part to just goes to show how bloody brilliant apologized and all and I definitely feel like the Godfather trilogy say trilogy out of respect but really. I'm only talking about the first two. The Godfather trilogy is really. It's really something you invest in like. If you're one of those mother fuckers that are like I watch showed but you're going in washing the dishes and hanging your washing. This isn't fucking for. You may like this nature full attention. You need to immerse yourself and you know you need to live and breathe inside of that world well. And there's an argument of all the different parts of the godfather sort of tries to portray. Because in the foster. You get Michael is still innocent. He's not really delve into and his sort of dipping into the role his follow ons into takeover on then by part to his fully malls into shit and even even by the end of the Pasta and by the time but in part to I told you it feels. He's hot any sort of reprieve role. He's just been putting files AMERCIANS. Yeah yeah if it was done. Now it'll just be little fires everywhere this. What Kerry Washington and report will be doing? This is an episode is not going to age. But it's it's it just goes to show you that. Oh I think I thought about where it's Johnny of how Michael Goes from sort of innocence to evil and then he's Strana sort of secret dam. Sure if it's being told from their point of view and they kind of likable isn't really evil. Evil because the sort of Michael struggling with thoughts of X. Not not everything is done. I think that can be justified as its business. Right you in the game. You know what's coming for you. You know wh you get hit by that bullet may it's just business the end of it but when he kills Franco then. That's what torments him and makes him feel as if he needs redemption. That's what sort of even towns his own son against him then of it and also I see it's bought all this I don't know it just it's just not comparable to do because the foster was just it's just to bloody big pieces of a jigsaw puzzle that just to perfectly together like a Venus flytrap. Yeah I'm just picking up on the point that you made Al Pacino has stated that he didn't agree with the portrayal of Michael in the third film Asia. Brilliant man feels remorse. Why the fuck would he care about killing freighter? He was his brother until it got to the point that he wasn't he wasn't even an ally anymore he had utilized the relationship with the familial ties to take advantage. And you know maybe. He wasn't aware of the fact that you know there was setting up an assassination. But he was getting into the bed with the wrong bedfellows and in part to. Frito didn't even get any sort of lick. You could see how how Sony was always there in the growing very very the to saying he and you saw him his characteristics chom passe. Just just how he was a child and then Michael.

There might be cases where it doesn't get enough recognition and that's a that's a whole different conversation have but quality is quality is definitely yeah damn dog you want go mate. Mate Gould. I'm also really loved about the Godfather which was surprising to me Because because there is the there is the age and there is the wave of like Italian. American Gangsta sort of films. It surprised me. How very Italian. The Godfather was and again that might be surprised to everyone that is watched it and has continued to love the godfather for us But I loved how especially with Vito. There were Italian American. Second not to say there's anything wrong Americans but like we have the Sopranos we have you know other instances. I was other gangs of New York. Whatever and so it was nice to see it because it really. It really reminded me a lot of good Maura. Aw Ginny you have obviously like whenever you watch anything. They talked about the five families of New York right. Like I get that but I just really liked how there was that feud full power. You had grand families you had ernest ship. There was obviously politics but there was also Respect as well Let's watch for Michael's and Oh no. No no no no he. He's like a new way New Age Mate. He doesn't respect shit owner.

And don't touch those foreshadowing oranges because we're referencing are offer through contract with the Godfather trilogy this week I think I did the whole legacy in that one. Will you give it a go orgy? No no no you all right you just gonNA. Is this the Cannoli? Let's leave Malo Marlon Brando's legacy intact forever rest in the most love Let's not off the way we always thought off L. Steps are. This is a trilogy could have just stayed as a do allergy. That was a terrible way to phrase the word but it was much better than the third film L. Come and fight me friends and lovers So I'm going to quickly go through the stats and then we can get into office impressions and I Guess H. Movie and it all kind of congeals together and delicious reference special So the First Godfather As some of our learned pool your learning glasses up. If you've read the novel It was adapted from the novel by Mario Puzder Directed by Francis. Ford Coppola. All it has to be said you just have to put that extra seasoning On the the first film came out in nineteen seventy two had a budget of six million Which is a lot more than paramount. Thought it was going to allocate they wanted to have a really low scale budget And then that got completely turned around seventy six million dollars. Worldwide Gross in nineteen seventy two two hundred and forty six million dollars. That is a pretty penny even by today's standards his massive The Next Godfather film obviously named to Came out in nineteen seventy four two years later. The budget was thirteen million dollars. And it grossed forty eight million dollars actually interesting. We will go into first impressions but I always hear people talking about the second one being better than the first so. It's interesting that the box office doesn't reflect that right And then we come to the monstrosity. Sorry the third and store of the Godfather series. They came out house. Maps going eighteen years later Sixteen sixteen years later abacus. You should be alright. Well either way you shouldn't be looking at the mercy let's put it that way The budget is fifty four million dollars. And it grows one hundred and thirty six million. Yeah I guess because you. If you were a fan you would go and watch it in up sixteen years you going to see whether you stateful whether you stayed for the whole film. I guess is a story for another day. actors they kind of Follow through the whole trilogy so we have Marlin Brander as Don Vito Kalyani. We have Al Pacino as Michael Kalaiana. We have James can as Sanatana otherwise learn as sunny In the second film we see an introduction to Robert Deniro. Ooh Wow you're lucky. Young Deniro wasn't around when I met. You are t wow he. He had a face that would betray your mother. I told you also credits to Diane. Keaton who I didn't even realize that was her as K. Yeah actually right right. Not the not to the extent of Morgan Freeman. Like you know like as long as you knew Morgan Freeman. He was old. Like Diane was definitely young when I first saw but I don't remember her looking that. Yeah maybe given a baby it And then also I want to give credit to rub divall. Who Plays Tom Hagen Solo character and then if we talk about introducing in the Godfather we have Andy Garcia Playing Vincent Mancini What a character but also Joe Montana playing Joey has yeah Rossi from cradle mine and he also plays a mobster on the simpsons as well so they are Those are the stats Full the Godfather series woken woken.

I'm mixing histories right now. We'll before derails any further. Let's continue to first impressions. Also swallow spoiler spoiler. I say foreshadowing oranges. But then again. If you haven't watched godfather that won't mean anything so let's get into first impressions. Not This is the first sort of Italian American gangstar. Mafia words That we're covering on the foyer reference. So not just godfather feel free to capture like was it was this genre. Big in Kenya How many times have you watched the Godfather and has it changed now that we've recently finish the trilogy? It was definitely Being Canyon because lowers the Godfather Right. Despite some of the off color comments about darker skinned people it was it was big I think this is the second time watching it with these. So everything jewelry is my second time. I'm not sure I think when we met. I wanted to always just get you to watch the godfather and it took a long time. Because he wasn't either the right time or you're busy doing other things and finally with all the Stuff going around you've been able to just sit down binge plead trilogy which was just amazing What do you think like a sorry just to interject for a second? What do you think felt longer because these are essentially average them out there about three ish hours pace and that's kind of the same as Lord of the Rings? What felt longer upset a.

"I heard about this thing. And I think I think Travolta was also attached to Silvester. Stallone was going to direct down Travolta in the godfather part three and finally why I wanted jen here for this. Hey guys just dropping. The original there was a plan for Godfather. For why and I want it so bad. I wanted so godfather none of that nonsense. Although it was supposed to be godfather to heels will be a sequel prequel okay. The sequel dealing with Garcia reprising his role as Vincent during the one thousand nine hundred eighty s dealing with Mary's death and taking the corleones pretty much self destruction like Michael however the prequel part of it was supposed to be Robert Deniro coming back as Vito Corleone on in the Nineteen Thirties and Leonardo di caprio plane sunny. Corleone okay I guess but but we're talking so when would this nineteen ninety five one thousand nine hundred eighty six so? I think that was like his basketball diaries area. That's like he's he doesn't have that look though. Because if that's like ninety five right. So that was pre titanic. So his hair his two young there though both sunny supposed to be well. He's supposed to be young but I don't know Sonny is James Caan correct. Yes yeah so I guess pretty much. The film was it was almost made it. They were the script was ready. And it just didn't Garcia anywhere. Cs said that the film it just right before he got into production. It was canceled. I thought you would have more of an opinion about Leonardo DiCaprio playing being in the Godfather. I mean who would have directed it. Coppola well yeah I mean I don't know oh well I don't know I feel like Leo's Leo's not ready for that like I feel like Leo sure. Wasn't I feel like Leo? Not at that age would have been good inside this movie but I feel like Leo. Maybe ten years after because he still played younger people even when he was like thirty like when he was older. So he's like forty five now think and he still plays a little bit younger and he's his defense. Anything is better than Sofia Coppola. You can't get any worse FIA Coppola in this but I guess and then maybe who knows maybe he would have been like but not really because Francis Ford Coppola after really the godfather like how many other movies as he made all you. You missed that part of the conversation all right so finishing off the last this is just a bonus fact. The AH corleones. Brother dies in every single Godfather Film Sunny Godfather One frito Godfather to which I still hate and Michael Gaafar. Three also just dropping. This freydl totally deserved. No he did not and that's another conversation for another time until late tonight. But we're not talking about that. He did not. I didn't godfather remained. Then Henry Hill should deserve to die. No he didn't die. He's deserved to die. I don't know about that and then. This is Cuban. I would love your take on this. Many people felt that Garcia to Cuban to play an Italian and they were against that or casting. Originally I actually disagree with this only because Cubans can be any like any color. Let's say and like a lot of Cubans are very olive-skinned and Andy Garcia's very olive skinned and I don't think his was super heavy. And if Al Pacino can play a Cuban and fake it in scarface and not even be a great Cuban than Andy. Garcia could definitely play Italian. Good point because he only got Cuban in scarface. Is Pacino no is manolas. Actually Cuban so it doesn't you know many poor Monojlo one day we got to cover scarface. Look over scarf. That's the only good Cuban because he's authentic everyone else's knock Cuban in that movie and yeah. That's that's where I say all right perfect so that pretty much wraps up for our coverage of the Godfather trilogy over the last year. Next Week Ryan's been looking forward to the since he joined the podcast two years ago. We're going over the entire view. Askew Universe starting with the celebration of the twenty fifth anniversary of Mallrats and they were just cover everything including clerks clerks to dogma. Jane Silent Bob Strike Back Zaka.

"With Vinnie and Michael together I think age really well And the The montage ending. I I still really like where you see the little glimpses of all the other movies for me. That's age the best are what am I right. simply the score and the end for many stood out the best so Before I get into my best I do have some notes that I took down not that many but I took down some notes from my watching him film last week. So opening shot of Tahoe. I think it was an effective way to bring back. Bring this back into the world of the Corley family especially after the fourteen year gap from the films. So you're able to see how tahoe looked when no one was there anymore. I Still Hey freight Oh bean dead. Just want to put that out there. The leather leather jacket with a shirt and tie and slacks bold choice by Andy Garcia. I actually really like. I don't know if you guys noticed. Have Vinci's mom is actually the same actress that Sonny was having an affair with and Godfather one Sofia Sofia Coppola performance still stinks rela. Relatives Always Kissing a movie. What the fuck and then here we go andy. Garcia's chess here. Who in their right mind told him that was a good look. It is I as a man I gotta ask you re Yoon Yoon Lee Eun Leo. Here you guys. Don't have Harry chest like that right now. I mean.

"Actually I did I He wanted to name it I think it was like the death of Michael Corleones Yup. So he wanted to name it. That him Puzo PA- paramount found that unacceptable and needed to fill into godfather part three. Which is I see both sides. I absolutely see both sides of it. On one end if Coppola is looking at this as an epilogue of course. Let's not call it. The Godfather part three you know give it to something else. But on their paramount's the only way this is going to make money is if it called the COPPA that part three so In regards to the cast Al Pacino. Danke entirely reprise their roles for the first half from the first two films according to Copeland's Audio Commentary on the Godfather Robert duvall refused to take part unless he was paid a salary comparable to to Pacino in two thousand four on an interview with sixty minutes duvall said if they paid Pacino twice what they paid me. That's fine but not three or four times. Which is what they did. So do one being. The movie is very noticeable and George. Hamilton is not as good substitution. For Robert Duvall when Duval dropped out coppola rewrote the entire screenplay to portray Tom Hagen as having died before the story began and created the character. Bj Harrison played by George Hamilton to replace Hagans character in the story. The original film was actually supposed to have Tom. Hagen heavily involved in in the story of the film. Unfortunately I didn't happen. He was going to be dealing with the corleones charities which in turn deals with all the the doings with the church The first draft of the script had been ruined by that Dean Reisner in nineteen seventy nine based on a story. Puzo descript senator on Michael Corleones son Anthony a naval officer working for the CIA and the Corleone family's evolving a plaza in a plot to assassinate a Central American dictator almost none of the elements of the script carried it to the final product. So that's pretty much all the behind the scenes with the production of the film. There's not really too much controversy per se as of yet We'll get to that issues with Sophia couple. A little later in terms of the box office The movie premiered on December Twentieth Nineteen Ninety and it went worldwide on Christmas Day. Nineteen ninety. Godfather budget was fifty four million dollars and for a movie of this magnitude. It still made a hundred and thirty six million dollars so I think it did okay at the box office with the type of movie it is. It's a three hour movie about a mob family. I think is did pretty well. Cinema score despite the fact that you know a Lotta people. Viewed it in a certain way nowadays still has a B Plus on cinema score in rotten tomatoes. It is actually fresh at sixty one percent. So it's still not as hated as it is. People think it is in terms of the trophy room. It was nominated for best picture. Best director best actor supporting role. Best Original Song Best Art Direction. Best Cinematography and best film editing. One none of that. What's missing here? Alpa Chino and lead actor. What the Fuck Digi. Dj Francis Four was in at the Globes it was nominated for picture director actor supporting actor screenplay original score original song but it did win some awards at the razzies so feel Coppola. One worst supporting actress and Sofia Coppola. One worst new star in terms of the other recognitions is actually Recognized the AFI on these lists. It's to two thousand five hundred five one hundred years. One hundred movie quotes just when I thought I was out they pull me back in Nice. That's great quote all right. So let's get to our fun categories here Leo. What's age best aged? Best the score. Jeez Bro that scores. Amazing it's still. It's still great yet I think Andy Garcia's.

I want to help me out will hang in the studio and give you credit. Of course these are the eight steps that I think people need to be successful and I'm curious about your thoughts on this first off step number one humility. Before you can do anything. You GotTa be humble right second stabbed. GotTa be training involved right because you don't just wake up and like oh I'm Gonna I'm GONNA figure that out. Adaptability obviously being able to adapt in mold and making and figure stuff out trial and error self explanatory hunger. Nobody's GonNa make you get up in the morning and prepare for show or post something or get something yet that hunger on your own faithfulness. He could almost interchange with consistency next perseverance. And then of course not least kost speak to those Maybe eight points if you want and just See what you think on that as you digest that. Oh Man I think those are all right in hunger and that's kind of what we talked about earlier decision. It's also consistency. I guess the the decision to like show up every week right but the reason I did that was because I was hungry like I needed to find something that that actually was successful than I that I tried you know and so But yeah the the hunger is really really will drive you forward. It can break some people too. That's the that's the really hard part is sometimes People who are hungry. They they do some bad things in order to in order to try to get what they want But for the most part if you let it drive you to to just keep going and this is one of my personality type things that I just don't really It was just hard for me to keep going with things But I've had I've had to learn that Did you read the book?

Another thing Talked about iterating that I actually need to interact pretty soon so I one of the things kind of just terrified of the what am I gonNa do. What am I GONNA DO I found a thing called rainmaker platform which was put out by copy. Blogger Brian Clark. If you know who they are one of the early content marketing guys and I really respect. I love his strategy like everything that they do and so they have the platform which is basically wordpress over lake. So you've got people don't know what that is looking up but it is a wordpress website that you can use but they built into it everything you could possibly need so you WanNa do a memberships that you can do that to do. Email marketing can do that. You WANNA itself products. You can do that and if you want to you you can do that and actually upload it right to your website now normally not recommend that all this was built with us so that's how it was okay but Especially host it right there and Man I wish I hadn't affiliate link for that right now but just in case anybody wants to get it but they so it's really good But I probably liked something with more of because that's the one thing that is missing. Yeah when we switched and I don't know again I don't know I don't know anything about that because math is not my my thing talking to people in selling products. That's where it's at for me but But our stats almost tripled. When we went from two to simple gas I don't know why I I don't know why so I'm GonNa to just let that sit on the table and people can discern that however they desire you're going with it you know what I think I it's really that's a really good. And they're very important But your number of downloads. Really not the way to judge your podcast. I don't think it helped and it's kind of Nice. It's great you know. I often tell people I don't know if you won't say I would say the number that I that I that I'd hit but I'm proud of that but what I'm more excited about is when somebody reach out to me and says hey you know van episode change the way that I see right and it seems the way that I am interacting. Got In my in my life because I heard this person go through the same thing that I'm going through like that's the kind of engagement thought I'd much rather see. I'm GonNa say this right now on the record I could care less. About how many gallons I have could care one hundred percent less. That is the number one question. Everyone asked me when I say my church or I seem at work or I see him. You know. Were trying to engage in in companies to partner with us. That's the number. One question is how many of those do yet and my answer is always. Does it really matter and responses usually like law? I don't know does it and I said well. Here's what should matter to you who's GonNa hear your message and is it GonNa change their life and they're like okay. That's all that dramatic. I might one hundred percent. We we've had an episode came out recently for us if I can brag on her. Show a little bit. It is my show comprised about my own show right. I don't know I don't know okay. So we had one come out and called We're in a series that you're now part of to this identity vision. This cost series. That we've been that will wrap up the April but in that we had an episode called mother and we sat with a a mom lost her daughter at fifteen years old. The the daughter took her life and I had so many people. Come up to me after that episode and was like most powerful than you've ever done. That was amazing. I can't believe you made her cry. That was amazing. Wow how did you ask her that? Wow her family even said some of the questions you vaster. We've wanted ask her for the last five years. We've not been able to. How did you? How did you ask her that? I'm like I don't know I don't know so it's things like that when I hear things like that. I'm like I could care less about how many people downloaded that. It's that right there in that moment that I'm like we made a difference. You know right. Yeah which is what it's about really you know you you have a you have a a mission and you have a message that you want to go and that is you know really what you what you need to care about so getting especially getting finding out people that hey you know this is this is powerful. I mean I like I said on my show we we have people tell their stories of relationships with God and it's just so powerful like and I and I know that even you know that people hear it and they can either relate to where the person is one reason I service show right and my tradition. I I don't know what yours is but my tradition. We never talked about how the dark now. The soul spiritual desert wasn't normal part of the journey so I wanted to kind of normally some of that and talk about it so now I've got one hundred seventy five plus examples of people talking about when God so far away. It's a yeah it's actually normal so hope. My hope is that people can hear it and actually relate to it if they're in the season so yeah. I agree with you. One hundred percents speaking of your show. What is the vision for your show going forward from here? Yeah just from here or where do you see going? Yeah You know this year? One thing I've done is I've decided to be a little bit more. Selective so are haggling is honest conversations with ordinary Christians about today's Christian experience. So we're talking about people's experiences with God's Sometimes that we're trying to go beyond what was traditionally called the testimony. My life was terrible and met. Jesus now is great. We're talking about other stuff. That happens on a spiritual journey. How you learned type found yourself in Christ and then how You know how works itself out So I'M GONNA be a little more selective I'm trying to curate something And find new kinds of conversations and new kinds of experiences. I'm totally okay With hearing stories you know everybody read his story and You know they`re. They're bound to be similar. But I'm looking for other people groups that I haven't had a chance to your from again or before because there are They can have different experiences so I way that works out now is I've had People from all different regions of the United States had people from different places in the world. I interviewed last year. Woman from England interviewed a Guy. Who's a missionary in South America from can't but he's risen from. Canada interviewed a guy who is from New Zealand but also the works in Cambodia. Things like that And people administered in South Africa and from there. So that's I Really WanNa Kinda curate. That experience a little bit more Even nationally racially You know scream wise. So what I mean by. That is Richard Foster read a book called streams of living water that talked about the different streams of Christianity that People have turned it on people in different different streams there as well Just finds it on different kinds of experience that makes them no. I think it. Does you really WanNa get more wide Perspective on Christianity? I would think right. Yeah exactly okay on the kinds of experiences. That people are how so. That's the goal so we'll change gears a little bit Cardinals Fan right absolutely because you're Missouri. Right well actually Colorado. Oh well okay. I'm GonNa tell you that well I'm one day going to get a map in the studio and we're GonNa have a pinprick for every place not been so I dream of that but those maps are like seventy bucks. That's yeah they're expensive. But but I'm arnold becomes. I grew up in Iowa and I had a lot of a lot of Colonel Sanders. Can I think you can hear Komo ex from divine. Where where I'm at. Which is the radio station? Cardinals are on but there's a lot. There's a lot of courtesy okay so being cardinals fan. I'm a giants fan. We're just GONNA we're just GONNA do okay. We're GONNA be okay where it's going to be okay. We're GONNA be okay all right. I'M GONNA share a picture with you on facebook. Okay I've a friend who From San Francisco Giants Fan and I've made the unfortunate Take a betting him a couple of years about You Know Hey. Whoever wins when the cardinals and giants in the National League Championship series? I remember that. Yeah World Series. I just want to talk about what happened. Where one by the way and won it. Yeah I know and I bet that two years that we look at that On my car. And we law and he's got pictures of me where giants jerseys and he just like sharing again. Recently I was like dude. That's not cool man do but Baseball is such a beautiful. Or it's my it's my favorite. It's Kinda tainted right now but but that's my question. Well okay look. Do you want to talk to astros after they were just kind of jerked? I mean that's unfortunately I feel bad about because for lots of reasons but I Carlos Beltran was part of that team right like he he was when he came to the cardinals out there. What prudhomme La Apple? When he came after he was like a hero right. 'cause we have kind of our our guy in the middle of the order and When I don't I don't know what to say about it. I think it'll people get over it but we got other things to worry about all kinds of stuff so okay so back to this being cardinals. Fan Right. I know you're diehard Carlsbad. So you get an opportunity to sit with Ozzie. Smith speaking of our pool gets it with him or you get to sit with. Jesus all three of them. Maybe or one of them. Which one do you sit within? And what do you ask.
"godfather" Discussed on Other People's Shoes
"That's pretty true. Yeah I will talk to everybody. I got to go to podcast last year and I remember like never were a lot of people I was just. I just wanted to see so I got to talk to some of the I would call the A. Listers podcasters like John Lee Dumas and Pat Flynn And and others I guess I'm Eric Fisher. I'm like you know have these. He's out there does a productivity podcast. you still like in my some kind of cool. He's actually about my show and he goes. I'd be on that so I'm going. Yeah we can speak to this too. You want we're still struggling with asking to be on someone show. I don't I you talk about the professor in the room like you're afraid to go talk to him. He's there to help you I as a host. I am so not skeptical. That's not the right word. I'm so afraid to go to another host me like hey could we? Maybe come on your show is that maybe could do you want to have. I mean you know could. We may so embarrassing to ask that. How do you get over that That's a good question so a couple of Number one what what works really great for me is going into places like our Our Christian station which is a facebook that I started percussion podcasters. And I'll just ahead looking to be on some shows. Usually I'll get you know submarine bookings right there. So that's that's pretty helpful and not very personal but if there was a show that really wanted to be on Because you know you probably get this two people get all the time right so you really have to be clear about the value that you're going to bring to the audience because Podcasters aren't very sensitive about what they offer to their audience. Typically they want to be sure that the content is GonNa be good. They're not GONNA be boring. I've been burned a few times where I interviewed people for other reasons and then found out like this person refuses to talk about themselves or to tell their story about cats. That's not good because that's not what we you sometimes. I'll run them anyway. But it's just you so I understand the hesitancy but I think he just asked for the other thing is is the second thing Oh it's always okay to be reciprocal right so stay. Hey which I love to have you on our show and would you be interested in having us on yours and then at least you're offers something well So you're clear about what you're bringing their audience but then also you're giving them even more value by month your show Another thing about podcasts is actually The community there's only under sixty thousand five yesterday so Between you still pretty small. And if you've gone through the work to do the creative yeah There aren't that many people who have done like you so we are all very Pretty Cordial unbrotherly. Yeah I've only been on show so far. So and that was the square one show and they're amazing we love them. Dave and Jessica host that David Jessica Lewis Jessica actually does voicing of commercials and she voiced one of ours and did fantastic so so how does one get over not being good enough because indefinitely or you know it's going to happen right? You always feel like you're not good enough you listen to someone else's show and you're like man. They're doing so much better than I am. And I'm just terrible. Yeah I have one word. I learned that from my coach so one of the best thing I ever did had a well. I don't remember what year this was doesn't fifteen. I had a sabbatical from my work. Who HAVE NOT GONNA name And they would give four weeks sabbatical after every five years. So about Agog is in the coffee shop and my friend came up and and said on the seminary together Cam you know. We kind of caught up n zero. He told me he was doing coaching from where I was working on my podcast and we ended up developing coaching relationship and he helped me figure out that it doesn't have to be perfect. The first time right. I think what we're afraid of anyway. I think that's what we are. Were afraid of being perceived by our first efforts. Instead of our what we're going to become If you told me four years ago that somebody I would go into Pakistan somebody would say one of the fathers podcasting. I've been with your Craig Right. That's I'm still think but when I'm a really really change that and now I go well. Yeah I I like to help people what we do. pocket helped me learn. I needed to Idiot and search and just be bad at it for a while. I think we all want because we see the celebrity name. Whoever it may be the Joe Rogan's of the world I mean. It seems like every celebrity. Now Oh so. And so as a podcast. Oh so and so and they immediately get you know the the ten thousand downloads per episode because of their name because they have already have an established brand. You know I've met Joe Rogan millions downstream. So here's the deal. Joe Rogan did his time right he has. He's a comedian. You know how the what? That's like like comedians travel the country or they do comedy and they'd get up and they they bombed every comedian will tell that bombing is part of being comedian. So they'll try new JOE. They'll try think we'll get laughed off state or whatever not in a good way and That's just part of practicing. He's comfortable helmet fear right so he's comfortable in front of the camera in front of a microphone because he's done it for thousands and thousands of hours So you can't so Johnny Cup says this don't compare you're beginning to someone else's metal so powerful and important Just allow yourself to be not good ended for a little while it or a so. I guess all the time about Acknowledging also if you you know. I started with a with a sure am fifty seven microphone. I think that I just had around from when I was into music. And that worked for me. And then later able to upgrade to a high of here forty which is a really nice mic and the mic and other things. But that's just the hunt right. He just wants a new shows that I was going to death in then. I could invest in better equipment but the apartment starting align myself today right. Yeah I mean I think again you gotTa start somewhere and I think again. There's so many people that think. Well why why don't I want? Why do I only have like ten listeners? Well why you know I only have twenty people listening. I only have this. It's like when when did you start? Why started a month ago? Why expect ten thousand people will listen? Well FIRST OFF. You Know Ten thousand people. Let's let's start their second. Have you told all of your friends and family? Hey by the way I'm doing a podcast like my family is probably sick of him. I my wife is saying mazing and and gracious and my friends are as well but undoubtably when I'm talking to friends I'm like hey guess what we have coming up. Hey did you know we? We got this guy or this cows coming up. Hey did you know that we got a New York Times bestseller did you? And they're like we it. You have a podcast. I mean people are working. I'm like hey what are you doing? What are you listening to music? I'm like do you. Do you do podcasts? You listen to them and they're like let me guess you have won. I'm like I do actually. It's it's called other people's shoes it's pretty good. People I get you know. Subscribe if you want right but that's how you grow the audience right. It's organically not this like magic pill that you can take weight loss. You're not gonNA just be skinny overnight as far as I know right and and you have well I would take that but you have to show up. And that's that's another thing so iteration is one. You can't integrate it. You don't keep showing right so you need to keep doing it. One of the most important thing podcast. I remember when I got the end of the thirteen episodes. They were coming to an end so I did release three and then I had ten weeks of just episode publishing without having to doing and I guess about Eight and I started thinking I what am I gonNA do? How am I going to hold us up? 'cause I had recorded those show probably a year before actually launched them re release them so I think what am I. What am I GONNA do? And I had to make a choice to actually not being afraid of asking people to be on the show and just reach out to people online. And so there was a Guinding Richard Jacobson. Who has a really interesting story? But also had written a book called unchurched which a whole nother a whole nother area. I found it very fascinating but He rejected the that he was out of the just published his book. Hey we you know I love to hear your your story. Would you come on my podcast and you know green rate? So that's when I I had to pay either. Yeah just keep keep going. But then I would sometimes have gaps and so it's like you know four episodes and then I didn't what was going to happen my head to and I if you're gonNA I don't guess I'm GonNa make something so even if that meant on Sunday night. They publish on Monday morning on a Sunday night. I am down basement till eleven o'clock or midnight trying to work on something publish the next day I was GonNa do it no matter what it was gonna make sure there was contact on. Monday and that single decision is probably one of the one of the most important ones right after the fighting was going to be okay with not being good enough right away. I love that I love all of that because I had the same mindset We just celebrated our year At the January and I made a commitment to myself every Wednesday and Because we release every Wednesday and man there have been like eleven pm eleven forty five ripe of Warri Hits midnight. You know getting that uploaded and the other thing that I went through two And maybe you can speak to this. Maybe you don't want to plug them per se. But I went through three different hosting companies. I started with Litz Lipson and Nothing against them. They're great they're analytics or wonderful. Everybody LOVES THEM. And they are great. They were too expensive for me. And I'm GonNa tell on that so if they're listening. Dave Jackson hear me. You're too expensive for turning broadcaster. I'm poor like I run my show. We run our show up forty dollars. Yeah forty dollars..
"godfather" Discussed on Other People's Shoes
"Thank you so much for joining us on other people's shoes? Of course I am. Your host Neal Matthews. Thank you thank you for joining us all the way from Missouri. My next guest joins us from there. he is a father. He's a husband. He's a podcast or he actually hosts the show which I'm really excited about because it's a fascinating show. Great guests always has good content. Halfway there he's a man that likes to start the conversation and maybe some controversy. Maybe we'll get into that. A little bit helped me. Welcome in my guest to Eric. Eric how are you today? I'm doing great. It's great to hear from you. Good to talk to you. Well first off. We've never talked before. We've probably traded countless facebook messages and back and forth comments and stuff like that so it's great to finally have in my mind kind of the Godfather in my mind of podcasting putting you elevated. Perhaps no I'm not. I think that's personal. Very kind I was just myself. You know sort of like I don't take conciliatory podcasting. Maybe but the Yeah I've I've had the privilege of having written about clipper nuclear even scrap i. I don't know him not well. He's he's one of the guys all talk Jesse. All roads lead the cliff. And so I I. I actually call him the Godfather Part Catholic but I love the authorship. Thanks for that. Well I in my mind you and Dave Jackson right you know Dave Jackson the school of podcasting. So what's funny is. I got an email from him randomly. So Dave if you ever hear this thank you for the random email back to us. I was talking about the road. Castro pro which so many podcasters it seems like are going to that we use it. Maybe others are using it as well. Great Tool Great. Obviously so much. Awesome stuff to it. But we've been having a challenge of doing remote stuff. And so somehow Dave reached out to me and was like hey. Here's a great resource to solve that solution for remote stuff so that was cool of him to do that. And so we're trying to connect see if we can get the great Dave Jackson in shoes so so so stay tuned for hall fame. I believe they really. There's a there's a hall of fame me are you right now. They're the pocket the whole thing. I'm not in it yet. I don't nominate you. What does it take to get you a bus? I don't even know but he has and he's actually going to be at the spark vision. I Guess Conference title coming out of that. Yeah you don't WanNa talk about that. It's like eighteen hundred dollars for us to go I know all right. Let's get back on topic so hey Erik you're awesome. I love it. Hey Eric what say shoes? Are we in today for you? We're we're the same size. That's awesome what What brand we rockin. Oh I think Clark are you really wearing clarks? Yeah okay no judgment that no. It's fine no like was we were like. Oh Yeah I love Adidas. Uh-huh I'm wearing clerks sort of dress shoe lack jerseys. Okay Yeah Yeah. Well I'm I'm wearing my Jordan eleven's because I put him on today just for you because I'm like if I'm going to sit with greatness I gotTa have greatness on my feet. Some racking my my Air Jordan eleven's white with the Carolinas Stripe of course because it's all about Carolina. Blue so yeah. Yeah boy retrospect you should have something a little. Bit Cooler. That's awesome. Yeah we had Meghan which I know you've had her on as well and she broke down her shoes Quite extensively Probably the best shoe breakdown. We've had so far so she. She wins the prize so far if there was one to give away she neat lady grabbing her. So you know. I'm not really sure guy to be honest like Alan. I WanNa have nice shoes right but Or at least the people but here's the thing. I have one pair of shoes that are like really good though like an eighty dollars telling other kind of thing and But my cousin gave me when I was in his wedding. And that's pretty much it. That's like so I had to draw up. We're those but otherwise I'm wearing these football work better okay like I don't sit and chew judgement over people over to my. It's my obsession so insecure about it. Yeah I was learning. I'm sitting at the greatness and I'm making him feel like a slug or something. I don't know hopefully not but all right so let's dive into this greatest challenge facing podcasters today in your opinion. Oh man well okay so I think podcast is basically three questions It depends it all depends on where you are on your journey. Your I I question podcasters asked what about right so this is all about messaging voice So that's that's one time okay. Okay I'm GonNa give you three so the second one is great. Good you Talk Throat Cancer Pros so the technology is getting easier. Never been easier and cheaper to get recorded voice in the third thing is out of my audience. I got to sit with I'm writing for PODCAST magazine. Which is really cool. Next month. Our issue is going to have my. My section is going to feature rob tricks Patrick from focus on the family. He's the executive director of their audio content. Which I thought was pretty amazing to speak with him and He even he said you know. One of our biggest challenges is finding new people getting getting our podcast in front of new. And that's that's really the biggest in hardest parts. Have you had any other social media or you know getting people Find your show. How do you well how we've done it and I'm not saying we do it right or do it the best but because I don't know I mean we're only a year in? I know what you're on your. What now four five. Yeah the three and a half year so in June before. Yeah that's pretty impressive. And you have. How many episodes out if we're saying like the first March twelfth area. Were you at yeah. We saw like just now we publish up. So one seventy seven. Does he give it another six weeks or so? You know we'll be one one eighty four. Yeah that's pretty impressive. I heard an and I can't remember. Yeah seriously like applause. I can't remember who said this. But somebody said the average podcast or lasts eight episodes. Do you know anything about that. Yeah yeah I heard that so anywhere from seven to eleven episode depending on you know how how good you are so when I started and we hurt your dad told me that in two thousand sixteen right showed launched June snakes sixteen and I had thirteen. Episodes can't have all scheduled out because I just want the pass code. We lost six Yeah work what whatever works for you. I I think so. It all depends you know different. People have different philosophies about what you should do. So you can just wanted to start a podcast. Just sit down and start and then do one upset at the time For me I had to do more than that because I thought I just need to like. If I don't get half that the house then I probably won't make it over. I don't give up. Don't be discouraged. I can tell just even in my thirteen episodes that I had better asking questions. I got More curious I got better at some of my audio quality all thirteen those problems in some way or another but it got better as you went and then I devote more and more you know skill. I'm glad to get over that initial hump right away. So has how's that. How's that affected your identity at all? No Man you know podcasting completely changed me in some ways I was reflecting on this actually recently. So I mentioned nineteen. The inaugural issue just watched day. So there's probably two issues by the time our are here in the And I'm having the chance to go out and make some people still like I heard back from Somebody who I used to listen to on podcast and they'd be so excited to hear them And they're yeah they're gonNA THEY WANNA sit down for an interview talk about you know their podcast what they do. I never would have done that before I in college. I was a kid. I Remember Times going meeting to talk to professor and standing in the hallway for a embarrassingly some long period of time not wanting to go in and talk to the professor even though I needed help and they were there to help me right I just didn't want attention and now Maybe a seeking attention but I'm okay. I'm comfortable making an ass and that completely changed changed my world. It's one of the big big lessons. I've learned yeah I think I think for me I was never. I was never afraid to be in front of someone and I've been in sales like most of my adult life. So the idea of asking the right question you know asking for the sale you know asking for the gas that to me is all come very natural in a. Lotta respects and so I've had people reach out to them like. Hey how do you do what you do and I'm like I don't I don't know just do it. The the biggest challenge I came into is show notes so I don't know if you want to talk about that at all but but show notes I. I'm not a writer like the thought of writing. A book to me. Sounds daunting sounds like awful? Sounds like no way because you know being a Kid. That grew up with dyslexia. Learning disabilities spelling and written stuff is is not easy for me and so I've graciously. God provided this Guy Garrett who I love so much. Who's our executive producer. He has a cool tidal. We had to give him one because he was doing so much good stuff but he's doing all the shots and doing all the behind the scenes stuff and to me. That's where it's at so maybe finding somebody that is gonNa Kinda compliment you. That isn't may be good at asking questions that maybe you are vice versa. You know what I mean. Yeah absolutely that is always an option. I didn't have anybody like this. Kind of my. My own. Little Dream I think to this day. My wife doesn't even quite get it. She's like why do you WanNa talk to actually enjoy hearing the stories that I get to hear but I think you know she just wouldn't put herself out there and like not and It it allows coming just out there on my own and I learn had learned some things. Yeah it wasn't in my notes but it Kinda just came up as we're talking so yes sure. What would he got on that? Yes sure well. So here's my thing was shown US China they're good for your search engine optimization of.
