"And also the morality of it because there was a certain morality involved in that in what everyone turns out to be. And I think everyone in the book is just following their own path. Were you also inspired to kind of shed light and give a backstory and a central story to many of the characters who are often overlooked in what have become kind of familiar stories, the spy novel, the World War II novel, and yet here, rather than focus on the kind of head spy, the Godfrey Toby character, we are focused on the transcriptionist behind the scenes. And rather than focus on all of the men, we're focusing on the women. And another character who's often used or has been used in the past as a kind of source of an easy villain or a source for humor, which is a gay character, which you weave in here in a very period novel, and what feels like a very fresh way. Well, being a homosexual in 1940 in Britain is absolutely not something you're going to reveal. But of course, it makes you a good spy because you're very good at keeping secrets. And Juliet herself is completely baffled by his attitude to her because she she's 18 and she's an English girl who's been at an English girl's school and never come across this concept at all. So that's extreme naivety and it's quite touching their relationship, I think. In the end, they have an understanding and in 1950 we see a little bit more of how you can start to reveal perhaps your true nature, but you're still on the wrong side of the law. So it is about the novel in a way it's about truth because it's whether you're going to be true to yourself or whether you have to maintain a different kind of truth in order to exist. I'm going to ask you a question both because I'm curious about the answer, but also because I want to ask you about a specific review of this novel. Do you read reviews of your own books? I end up reading reviews no matter how horrified I am by the concept. I always end up reading them. And even someone will thrust a reviewer and say, this is a great review and you read it. And then there's a Butch in the middle and I'm sure every writer is the same. It's only the but that you remember because the caveat. Everything else is just meaningless.

Raymond Ibrahim Describes the Characters in His New Book
"Of the characters that you talk about in this book? Well, actually, so the first one, chapter one, actually, I wanted to mention right now is Godfrey of bouillon, and he becomes the so he's part of the first crusade he's one of the leaders of the first crusade. And I don't want to give too much, you know, I don't want to make a spoiler because a lot of this book actually is written in a very exciting narrative to just show you their life and adventure. But anyway, what's interesting about Godfrey is oftentimes you're the crusaders. They were the second sons who were denied land or whatever and had been so they decided to go and carve out whatever territory and get money and become rich and land holding in the Middle East. Well, he was a second son, but as it happened, he actually was a landowner and a noble and he was a duke. He's known as the duke. He actually sold everything to fund the crusade and then the rest of the money gave to charity to monasteries and so forth. He gave up everything essentially to just spend several years of torture and fighting and warfare. And when you look at why he did it, it's again for his faith. It's for helping Christians and so forth. And I understand what you're seeing. We have to counterbalance the love with the whole idea of just war. But I think many of these men actually did that, at least in the context of the times, as much as you could. People forget just how wild and savage the pre modern world blood. That's the point is people act as though you're living in America in the 21st century. No ladies and gentlemen, the world has been unbelievably brutal

"Listening You're such a powerful speaker and you don't run away from confronting evil And one of the things you were talking about yesterday was you know how when they saw the empty tomb Peter and John ran with excitement The excitement to evangelize the cause of the savior And I was reading along some of the readings yesterday as you were preaching your homily and it said at one point you know we ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead And I thought to myself you know that's important that we recognize that that they were witnesses father Marty they were witnesses they saw Jesus There was no reason for them to lie They died for it They disciples were martyred in horrible ways Why would they they weren't on social media media father Marty They weren't writing books about it and getting paid They died for this They saw it They were there I think that's important after Easter We as Christians recognize that They were on fire and they faced everything actually with joy They were instances of them singing and laughing and joking around us They were going through these worst tortures because they got it They had the perspective They're like this little blip of a life is nothing compared to eternity And we know where we're going to go for eternity And that's why they did it with great join They wanted ever everybody to recognize that They wanted everybody to accept that Jesus did save us and that Jesus was inviting them to accept that perfect love no strings attached And that carries on to today each of us each of us have those calling to have that same fire that same enthusiasm that same conviction to tell everyone use your God given brain recognize the gifts that we have recognize the unique role you have to stop this what I call best and sanity

Author Paul Gottfried Has Written the Book on Fascism... And Antifascism
"And Paul Godfrey has written a book titled anti fascism. The course of a crusade, who is Paul gottfried, you wonder, I'll tell you, first of all, he's my guest for this hour. He is the editor of chronicles. Some of you know that journal, he's an American paleo conservative philosopher historian columnist. He's a former Horace raffensperger Professor of humanities at Elizabethtown college in Elizabethtown Pennsylvania, as well as a Guggenheim recipient wow, doctor gottfried welcome to this program. Thank you for having me on. Well, it's a joy to have you on and to talk about your new book anti fascism. You had to be aware that there's something funny about the idea that you've written a book called fascism, the career of a concept followed by anti fascism, the course of a crusade. Tell us about that. Well, you know, I became interested in the subject of fascism before I was confronted by the problem of woke of the woke left, which is what we're dealing with right now. Much of my earlier scholarship, you know, dealt with political movements and movements of the right, as well as movements to the left. And I wrote a biography of Carl Schmidt, a German political theorist who influenced into war fascism. So sort of natural that at some point I wrote a book on fascism as well. And in studying the book on fascism, I was informed by a person who has become sort of my mentor Stanley Payne who's probably the outstanding scholar on the subject of fascism that the best part of the book was my treatment of anti fascism. So I was urged by Stanley and then by Amy ferranto, who was my editor at Cornell University in northern Illinois university presses. They're now merged that I should write a book on anti fascism, which I did. And as I told her, I found it much less interesting to my book on fascism because the people I was dealing with were much less

"And it's heard doing her new album which i think is called happier than ever performing this album completely front to back like every song in order and we're talking about this right before we started recording Are like not a full on. Billy irish fans. We're sort of like You know listener. Yes casual listeners. Exactly so i wonder how you know. People who are obsessed with her music would react to this. I came away being like. Oh this was like a fun. Little movie like just over an hour and The sort of interesting Almost like framing device of the film is that robert. Rodriguez is one of the directors by the way and patrick osbourne i think is his last name directed. Feast that short film. That was in front of the pixar short film about the dogs This was a few years ago But yet these two guys like co directed this movie and in addition to all of the concert stuff in the typical performance l. a. elements that you would expect movie like this. There's also images of billy irish walking around through la or driving around you know past all of the most famous iconic landmarks and things like that. But it's not really hurts like a row scoped version of her like an animated version of her where she's the only thing that's animated in Otherwise live action shot and yet so the look of it is really cool. I just wish that that part of it added up to a little bit more that there is some of you know in between songs. You'll hear some of her narration. She's talking to the viewers explaining why she loves the city and different things like that. But there's not really much meat on the bone. There and i wish that they would have gotten a little deeper at it. All feels super Surface level which is great. If you're just wanting to throw it on and listen to the music watch the performances which are You know really good like she's incredible performer. So it works on that level. I just wish that the The sort of quote unquote extra stuff was a little bit more interesting so happier. The numbers coming out on disney plus Pretty soon so you can put that on your radar. If you're billy bush fan and finally one last thing i went to mention is film called the package that came out in nineteen eighty nine so this is streaming on amazon crime right. Now i'm gonna look this up. Because i know that it is disappearing from ends on crime video like incredibly soon so yet as we're recording this it leaves amazon prime in ten hours. So basically if you're listening to this date comes out you can watch it tonight on amazon prime and that's kind of like your window basically So i just wanted to give a quick shout to this movie. Because i had never heard of it before and love. It's film. Andrew davis directed the fugitive directions. Movie came out in nineteen eighty nine. It starts gene hackman. And tommy lee jones and it's set during the cold war ended is basically a a movie where gene hackman plays a sergeant in the opening. The movie takes place in berlin and there is this whole thing with the cold war going on this sort of peace talks between american russia and everything seems to be on the brink of actual real peace happening and then something happens gene. Hackman's character witnesses. Something go wrong Attempts kinda thing and he gets pulled into this this larger conspiracy and he has to transport. Tommy lee jones character from a berlin all the way back to the united states. And then tommy lee jones ends up escaping. And it's basically hackman versus tommy lee jones in like a cat and mouse kind of thing as he. They're like going across the country and trying to figure out what the hell is going on with this grand conspiracy and it is super well done and the kind of movie that feels very very similar to the future so if you love the fugitive and you should rules and it's just like one of the completely down the middle like serviceable thrillers. That is like a four quadrant like everybody can love kind of thing. You can find something great to love about that movie. This movie is very very totally similar to that And actually found it super fascinating. Because i feel like even if you didn't know that andrew davis directed this you would probably come away with thinking. Hey wait a second. Did the guy who made the Make this movie because there are several it's set in chicago which is where a lot of the fugitive takes place and there are several set pieces. That look almost exactly like what he would do. A few years later in the daily jones chasing maybe a hidden. Tommy lee jones is being chased in this one. So yes so.

I used as developmental editor for black sunrise. I had the guy that Anywhere used for the martian and So he's a developmental editor so he's looking at the way. The story flows hanging things that should be left hanging or things like that or plot inconsistencies etc. So that's his job is to go find all that stuff and then it goes to copy editor who is looking for punctuation grammar and style and syntax and usage and all that stuff Then it goes from there to the sound guy I'm sorry to the voice over talent i may use a george widow again. He he told me to be happy to do another one for me and But i'm also looking at a couple of other voice over talents that are pretty well known I haven't spoken to them to determine their interest yet but then when that's all done the actual publication of a completed work if it's in good shape Is bloody simple exciting..

It's thursday so today was weekly. Unemployment claims day. Nine hundred thousand people asked for state unemployment assistance for the first time. That is down just a little bit from a week ago. So good but still monumentally high and then claims for the newly reinstated federal program for gig workers shot up more than forty eight percent. Nearly four hundred twenty four thousand people lost jobs in the gig economy. The jobs a lot of people turn to when they run out of options. Marketplace's eric embarrass gets is going with that. When last year shutdown started joy tout hurry. An uber driver in new york city was in a bind. There wasn't work. I was struggling to pay my rent as a gig worker shout. Hurry didn't qualify for typical unemployment benefits matt until congress passed. Its first relief package. This latest spike in pandemic unemployment claims is likely linked to the lapse in the program before the last aid package was approved new shutdowns and to the after holidays. Slowdown according to dmitri costas an economist at the university of chicago about a third of the labor force the some work in the gig economy and if more people are relying when gig work. A lot of the risk is on the workers themselves. That's because according to aaron hatton a sociologist at the university of buffalo. We've attached a whole bunch of rights and privileges and opportunities to employment retirement plants. Parental leave health. Insurance unemployment are tied to traditional fulltime jobs. And heidi sure holt. A labor economist at the economic policy institute says that was problematic before but with the pandemic. It's really shown us that the there are gaps in a regular unemployment system that you can drive a truck through. We do have the ability to close them.

The Functional Tennis Podcast
Nick Saviano from world the renowned Saviano Tennis Academy
"Hi Nick Welcome to the Functional Tennis podcast pleasure to be here. I've been meaning to get you on the show while we have your honor top academies around the world page which is probably one of our most viewed pages on the website. So it's great to of see. We've the Blurb Rebecca Academy and all the details would. It's great to speak to the main mind as well so delighted to chat which tell me how is life at the moment with all this cove? It situation has DECAPA me gone well. Unfortunately we have had to shut the academy down at least temporarily as all the Kaddoumi's in Florida have done and I guess around the World. But we've been able to stay in touch with our players and we are poised and ready to go as soon as they open. Things are coming in the next week or two. So we're pretty excited to get back out on the courts and fully functioning. Well that's great news. You haven't locked all your players in Lake. Rafeh did no. I didn't know he locked them all in but no we have not done that in a lot of our players actually are here with emily members or they're at private housing so we're good to go. He had me. Did Inscribe live with I think was Andy Murray Sane? Whenever they got closed down whoever was stuck there had to stay there. Nobody's lead in or out so he's running a tight ship over there. Well you have to. Whenever you're dealing with. Young people is enormous responsibility. So you always have to err on the side of caution. Yes no true. It's different when you're entrusted by parents to do the best for the kids so I think you're right. It's really important. So tell me a bit of empty Kademi. How long has the KADEMI being an operation? Well I started the academy shortly after leaving the US. Ta at the US was a national coach for boys tennis. I was eventually director coaching for men's tennis for the United States. I played on the tour for nine years and then I was also the head of high performance coaching education which was really actually exciting and then after that when I left I opened the academy in two thousand and three in. I started working with a few players I decided I really wanted to go out on my own and established my own methodology and a lawsuit for coaching and working with young people. So way back then. Two thousand three. That's when we started and it went extremely well and some of the believe it or not some of the first people I was working with were jan-michael Gambill. And also Vince Spadea. And also very young. Eleven year old. Sloan Stevens came a few years later and Jeannie Bouchard and Monica Point Again. A lot of other really good players started evolving or coming. And so it's been really exciting. It's been an amazing experience. Actually over the years up really really enjoyed it. Let's just cut back a bit before the academy and before. Usda tour life. You're a top fifty player. What was it like in the late seventies being a top fifty player? It was an amazing experience. I was one of the top. Juniors in the United States at the end of the year is ranked tree in the country. Then was the top recruit going into college so I wanNA going to Stanford. University was an all American there my freshman and sophomore year. Then I turned pro but back then I was one hundred thirty two in the world when Charon pro took me only four months and I was in the top hundred so the depth and the game wasn't quite the same as it is now so in one respect it was. Let's say less of a long grind to get into the top one hundred but on the other hand the rewards weren't as great nowadays. The players go to phenomenal hotels. They get paid and qualifying. The money is great. I remember I got around sixteen. At Wimbledon twice and the specific number I remember was four thousand pounds now. Four THOUSAND POUNDS. That probably is about seven or eight thousand dollars. Not even that much and today. I'm not sure what the guys in the gals paid for a fourth-round let's say Wimbledon. But I would suspect it's probably in the two hundred thousand range so money has changed a lot but it's more than just the money the quality of the way everything runs on the tour the ability to communicate with people. You know you have the phones. You have computers when I was playing. We didn't have cell phones. Believe it or not so completely different world when you went away for six weeks you really were far away. It was tough to get phone calls back with your families and so is a different way of life back then than it is now and I enjoyed it. I love playing the Grand Slams but I retired at twenty eight years old. I spent about eight and a half years on the tour and when I retired I was still in the top hundred for singles and doubles. I was recently married and we had our first child and when my first child was born. Nicole our daughter that was it. I said I'm done and I'm going to get a head start on the rest of my career which turned out to be coaching. Those a good decision and tell me what was your most memorable match. Great question one of the most memorable matches I ever had was in England. At Wimbledon I was playing a match against Pat Dupre. Who was a semi-finalist the year before and I believe at the time was ranch around twelve in the world and the day before I played buster macho from England and he was number one British player and I remember having served to save the match five or six times so I one nine seven in the fifth set and so I had to come out the next day and play again against Patty pray and this match was in cold fog long match and I remember my body aching and wound up winning at one. Twelve ten in the fifth set and I remember just kind of overcoming the exhaustion and at ten all eleven ten. I was ahead and I finally got a break point and I remembered to this day thinking okay. Should I go for this and ripped return because you know I just can't seem to break and this is one opportunity so I cheated thinking he was going to hit back in he did and I happened to hit it? Just right and boom. It was a winner and thank goodness over. I had a couple long matches. In Wimbledon at one with Brian Godfrey four in the world and that took either three or four days to complete believe it or not and I was down two sets to love and five two and it was almost nine o'clock at night the US keepers. Were all there waiting to the targets of the courts. So they're waiting for me to lose so I was down two point quickly. Want Upholding Sur. Five three and I played one of the best games of my life. Five four I bright serve. I hold sir. I break him and win the set then because we were there late. They didn't put me on I the next day and so they had a women's match on it rained a lot that day so that was a Friday. We only got like five games in so then pushed us over till Saturday but of course we were onto cords till very late again and so they didn't put us on ride again so we wound up playing one set and then it got dark again and then of course Sunday play so then we have to wait and then on Monday morning we played. We've finished the match and it had a happy ending. I one six one fits so those were my two good memories of Wimbledon long matches that stood out.
How RAIN Pivoted to Become a Pioneer in Voice and Conversational AI
"Joined wind rain actually as a consultant and that was a favor to nick and I think coming in that way was important because I really had an opportunity as you understand rain and its assets with a fresh perspective and you know not to mention the fact that everyone loves dish out dirty laundry to a consultant Especially when they're not part of the company and that information gathering was really valuable especially when I ultimately joined a CEO. Because I went into this is wide open at the time that that I joined rain. As Nick mentioned in twenty sixteen rain was doing many things in the technology space website mobile applications and voice was one of them but it really wasn't the focus it was just a small sliver of the business and at the time voice was very much being led by our technology teams somewhat in a silo and it wasn't being approached approach as a holistic strategy creative in tech solution the way that we offer it today there were just so many early indications that voice was going to be ubiquitous rain and had a very unique right to win in this space through our own technology capabilities and relationships but particularly with some of the early traction. We had with the big platform players namely Amazon. Initially at that time so very quickly after joining the company we made the decision to double down to the completely voice. Ai That that was three years ago and we haven't really looked back. And I really believe that that pivot and the ability to be hyperfocused has allowed us to stay ahead of the carbon really maintain income of our advantage in this space. Now what are some of the successes and challenges that making this pivot and to voice has brought to your agency all-star with a challenge. I think think for me as kind of an operational logistic guy him into a brand new space especially innovation has been tricky right so in our previous iteration were building a lot of websites and when I'm building a website I knew it takes about four or five meetings. Close the deal. I the approximate price point. You know of of building a website would be x one hundred thousand dollars. I knew that it would take me X.. Amount of months and I would make up to eighty percent margin when we're in the invasion baker especially building voice experienced. A lot of the things we're doing is we're doing that for the first time. So there's a lot. More education involve or spot. More meeting you'll cycle is longer we're having to get different stakeholders on board. More budgets aren't as clear as they were in the past. Sometimes they come from an innovation group. Sometimes they come from brands. PNL really figuring out how that sweet spot of how to get. The work started how to execute the war how to service our clients. Efficiently has been challenging. Everything we do we do it for the first time. That's been one of the biggest challenges you know on the success side and I'll let you chime in as well you know. We had at agency in our previous existence full of people that came to work at rain digital latitude. We had graphic designers copywriters we strategies we have project managers and we still have a lot of those roles by all those roles. Change Change fundamentally if you're a designer rain in two thousand sixteen well. What does that mean for us? When you now working at a voice company and not an adage dining website and it's been really amazing to watch people involved? I evolve the probably the biggest success I would say the core executive team you bet rain and and down from the top has really evolved. They've evolved their skill sets befall their approach accepting new challenges that playing in a space. That's it's been you and for the most part. A lot of people accepted this with open arms and they become experts in a field. That three or more years ago wasn't even really on their radar so watching the watching people skill sets change has been really exciting.

Meet Gilbert Gottfried's sidekick Frank Santopadre
"I have Frank Santa Padre. He is the co host of Gilbert, Godfrey's, amazing colossal podcast. This happens to be my favorite podcast aside from talking tech. Of course, a great place to get a lot of laps in stories about old Hollywood. And Frank one thing that I find really fascinating about your show. Is it sounds like you're interviewing people person to person, but many times, you're not correct? Or you're talking about the long distance broke up. How do you do that? What we do is. Well, we we originally we were doing Skype interviews, you know, when you're doing a show about old Hollywood a lot of people, especially retired people where where people in their sixties seventies and eighties live in Los Angeles. And we do the show out of New York. So that necessitated long distance and actions, we started doing them but phone calls, we realized that down very good. So we moved to Skype, but then the Skype audio would let you down because you would dependent on on the bandwidth, and and all kinds of other factors. So we decided to record people on the west coast. And then record our end, obviously on the east coast. And then our engineer mixes the two so really you get a seamless result. It sounds like we're in same room. So how do you do this does the person go to a studio and then you're negative air? They go to air will studios are our parent company partner, our partner, if you're wolf has a a studio in Hollywood. So they'll go there. And there's an engineer there. To record them. Sometimes we go to someone's home. If they're not in LA, we we recorded Robert Wagner last night. And he's an Aspen. So we dispatched an engineer to him at his house. And then they send us the audio files and our engineer Frank mixes the to file until it sounds like we're all together. How do you hear them? Over Skype hookup. Okay. Yeah. There's there's a there's a a camera. So we can see them which makes the interview better obviously, cover the other drawback to phone interviews is there's no I contact or anything you can't pick up social cues. You don't know when to speak when they're speaking. So we see them on a computer screen, and and and we hear them through through the Skype connection. We just don't use that Skype connection for for Finnish audio now when you came up with this concept, you are working with one of the great tech enthusiasts of all time. Gilbert, Godfrey, correct. Oh, there's nobody more technically proficient than Gilbert. And that of course, we're both being facetious. He is very anti tech. Now did he know what you're talking about? Did was it a tough sell mean? Tell me about this. You mean when when when we propose the idea of a podcast, so well, the podcast, and then the idea that you would use Skype to interview people. I I'm pretty sure Jeff that. After two hundred fifty maybe close to four hundred now if you count the Thursday, many episodes, I'm pretty sure he still has no idea. What a podcast is. Confident in that assessment. Yeah. He you know last night we were doing sound checks for five minutes. And the engineer couldn't understand why he couldn't hear Gilbert's voice. And then we realize he never plugged headphone, Jack he doesn't even have to use his cell phone. Tell everybody about the show. How's it doing the shows doing? Well. I mean, we never expected quite honestly this kind of response when we started. It was a large. Yes. It was started really as a labor of love and goof, I mean Gilbert, and I have known each other many years we used to sit on the phone till all hours, laughing about obscure character actors and just kind of arcane stuff that don't we thought only we cared about. When when we had the idea to actually interview some of our heroes. We thought oh, this'll be fun cult thing for a couple of hundred people, and our fellow the we didn't really know it would take off and that seventy five thousand eight thousand people a week would would download it were pleasantly surprised by the reaction and two hundred and fifty shows in. We've made a little name personnel to now. People want to do the show tell everybody about you. Because obviously Gilbert Gottfried has quite a career and from Aladdin to the comedy clubs to problem child. And all the things you guys talk about on the show, but Frank a writer tell everybody about yourself. Well, I've been a comedy writer for God about twenty five years professionally, and I've written everything I wrote for the Muppets I wrote cyber couple of screenplays that were optioned I written a lot of ward shows, I write for the comedy, central gross. I wrote the TV land awards they don't do anymore. Am I ran I wrote for I sort of made my bones writing for other comics and writing for people like Bill Murray, and oh, God all kinds of people joy Behar different people like that. And. And that kind of into into a career writing off show stuff panel what they call panel, which is celebrity talk show. I worked for the Howard Stern show for a while. So I'm kind of a joke writer, you know, writer of of one liner short form comedy award shows

"The word stern show. We used my voice doing Hebrew the other day, and we took an old tape, Gilbert, Godfrey doing his rabbi routine AA, and we call the religious show, and I think it worked out great. I, I was laughing. This is one of those real like internet shows. You can't even figure out they could anyone possibly be listening beside us, like it's bunch, don't get it how these all these shows have listeners to this show is Pete like it's a bunch of religious people, quote, unquote, religious people who claim they speak in tongues and all that.

At The Movies with Arch and Ann
Review: 'The Spy Who Dumped Me'
"Hasn't he thinks a also does ticker, right? Yeah, he has a wonderful, wonderful. Originally Gilbert, Godfrey was supposed to. Busy being. I found it very moving, and surprisingly touching said in the back row weeping for my lost childhood, bring all the things that are no longer available to me, I think is a great family flick. So that's good. I saw the Middleburg film festival had a screening of puzzles. Stowing Kelly MacDonald, right? Yes. And she arrived in town and first of all, I would like to say she's very open about this. She's forty two years old and she looks like she's twenty five, and that's why she is a movie star because I won't tell you how old I am, but I look about thirty years older than that. And it's a nice little. Movie of a of a downtrodden housewife who finds her Mojo doing jigsaw puzzles that she finds a partner and, and you know, it's, it's not exciting. It's not. It's not loud or anything, but it's a nice. It's a, it's a nice coming of age film and don't just Google jigsaw accidentally. Cassava, Papa torture porn totally different than what you. Yes, she is a lovely actress in. We're talking about this the other day. I think it was off Mike, but just some of the things that she's been. She was first in Trainspotting as a child. Essentially, he was the baby on the ceiling. Boardwalk empire. She was in no country for old men. And that's to me because I know she Scottish and beautiful doing the boardwalk empire thing was very hard because she was Irish desires, but the southern Tekere western Texas accent. She had. She might as well been born in Odessa. Here's your own lady bird. How do they do? I don't know. So I'm a big fan and it's it's a lovely movie, and I saw the spy who dumped me the other night because somebody needed to go to that. Kunas and Kate McKinnon, and it's not very good would expect. And Kate McKinnon is squandering her talent. And so I am worried about she is Uber, talented, death, but even I think we all agree and you should never judge a movie on the trailer, and then we saw the trailer. It was like, oh, no, really? And so that you're telling me that my fears are confirmed. They play it like a Saturday Night Live sketch except it's two hours law to our. I wrote this down. It's one hundred sixteen minutes when she's Larry on SNL. I wonder why. I mean, what is it that you Ghostbusters. Needs to develop her own material or work with people who know her to develop stuff for her. That really doesn't have to just take any script. Melissa McCarthy will write her own. Sometimes it's hit or miss, but sometimes hilarious. Even Melissa McCarthy, I was thinking Melissa McCarthy because she needs a new breakout something to get her to the next. She's doing the same thing over and over. Again. It seems to me and Mila Kunis was hilarious. And Ted ten thought was Jerry, so they both can do it, but not this time not time. So here's a reminder and Hornets when she's in town reviews at Washington Post dot com. And I'm arch.
