Can Seattle arts groups survive the pandemic?
"Corona virus is a public health crisis of course but it's also devastated the economy it's been especially destructive businesses that depend on people gathering together in person tourism restaurants and the arts. Kyw's arts and culture reporter. Marcy silman has been monitoring the health of the regional arts and culture community. She spoke with kim. Malcolm about what. We might see moving forward so marcy for the past couple of months. You've been doing some deep dive reporting on how the pandemic has impacted our cultural communities. How would you describe what you found across the board. Kim organizations are treading water. If they haven't already drowned you might remember last march. When governor inslee issued his social gathering restrictions. everyone had to shut down operations museums and some art galleries have started to welcome back visitors. But they're at twenty five percent of normal capacity which just does not sound sustainable. And marcy you and i've talked about how performing arts groups and musicians have been streaming content and how it just doesn't cover the costs for many of them. So what are arts leaders telling you about this pivot to digital when it doesn't pay the bills. Peter bowl who is the artistic director at pacific. Northwest ballet told me that he pivoted digital because he wanted to give some work to the dancers musicians backstage artisans and other staff who would otherwise be unemployed. According to a new study from the seattle advocacy group arts fund. Thousands of area of workers are still jobless and even though as we said. Some venues have reopened. This survey found only about nine percent of local artisans and been rehired many back part time or reduce salaries but kim beyond providing jobs. I think that this pandemic has really forced performing arts groups to reckon with the digital age in a way that they hadn't done before the pandemic kit. And what do you mean by that. Well for at least a decade arts groups have been trying to figure out how they compete with free or low cost online content that arts fund study that i mentioned found that every responding group plan to permanently integrate digital content into their arts program offerings the ceo of arts fund. Michael greer told me that's partly because audiences are really leery about heading into enclosed spaces with lots of people that component that new revenue component is going to be essential to kind of filling the void of individuals. Trepidation do moving back into the theaters or just a general reorganization of how society interacts with itself. Not even just in the arts bottom line marcie will most arts groups survived this pandemic. It's really hard to say for certain. But to quote the head of seattle's office of arts and culture randy angstrom. The sector is on the knife's edge getting people to value in compensate artists and creatives for their time was already a challenge. Then the pandemic it and it was devastating. And i think that that devastation was disproportionately felt by by park organizations and artists because they've been underinvested and undercapitalized for so long and i'll just note here by poc refers to artists who are black indigenous and people of color. What is happening with these communities. Well this summer one worries alicia. Johnston told me that they only have the funds to make it through the calendar year. I did check back with her earlier this week. And she says that right now. They've got about half the budget for twenty twenty. One heart of that came from contributions sparked by black lives matter but she told me those have tapered off and even though she describes herself as one worry self designated worrier about money. She's pretty hopeful that they'll raise the two hundred thousand dollars. They need to keep this community cultural center going. Marcy i know can county. And many private funds have funneled relief. Money to the arts sector. What are arts leader saying about what they need to survive. Many hope congress will enact another significant stimulus measure randy. Angst room would like to see a twenty first century version of the works progress administration. That was the depression era program that funded arts projects across the country. Local artists have already stepped up. And they've been making murals. And creating digital arts lessons plan for the public schools angstrom and many other folks think it's time to fairly compensate them for that work. And how optimistic is he that that might happen. I'm gonna let him answer that. I am hopeful because the creative community of the city gives me that help. I am hopeful because of the incredible resilience. I've seen and we need to meet that resilience with dollars and faith in their work but angstrom says the city cannot finance this on its own. They really need a major influx of federal dollars. At this point. Who knows when that's going to happen. We'll mercy speaking of resilience. I have to acknowledge. Even though i don't want to that this is most likely our last on air conversation about the arts as you retire from k. u. o. w. after a remarkable thirty five years. Marcy i just wanted to say thank you we're gonna miss you and all the attention and the advocacy for the arts. That you've paid Here in this part of the world. I'm just grateful for all the work and thankfully that still lives online. It does indeed. It's been migrate pleasure working with you as the all things considered host. And i'll miss you. And i won't be gone from the world of seattle's arts and culture still always keeping my eagle eye on it.
"greer" Discussed on Stand-Up w/ Chris Distefano
"Dot, com slash teams. All right that was greer barnes from his comedy central presents back in the day and Rachel. Feinstein. From her episode of the half, hour man I love these comics. Greer is an absolute legend I want to go in for a minute because if you don't know about him, you gotta check him out. He has clips online but seeing greer live is a totally different thing and I remember before I met him I was so intimidated by him because he's there's an air about him with the specifically with the comedy cellar because. I remember when I auditioned at the comedy cellar auditioning at the comedy cellar in very stressful. It's you get five minutes. They throw you in the middle of a real show with you know a regular lineup of comedy cellar comics and it's all killers. So they throw you they throw you in the midst and see if you can hang and. I remember John Fish great comic was hosting and he goes he goes, Hey, do you have a preference on when you WANNA go up? We're GONNA put you after this one guy it's Kinda of earlier in the show, but I just want to get up there before grier goes up and He said that because he goes I'm telling you when greer gets off stage, he will be the mayor of this room late they they're gonNA love him so much that it's it's very hard to follow and I don't fully believe in that sort of thing like the hard to follow mentality I think. Almost, anybody can follow anybody if if you have the right little moves to change the energy up not always but for the most part, even if somebody murders, it's almost better if somebody murders because then people are in a good mood. So it it's it's even easier but greer's is a special type of killer where. He changes the whole vibe of the room. He slows it down to his pace and he just murders and Sir enough I, went on before and and it all worked out but. Then, I got to sit back and watch him do exactly what John said he would do, which is just changed the energy of the room and Be Hilarious, and I realized I had seen greer before when I had come through the seller because he has this opener. That's brilliant. I'm not going to ruin it but it's he essentially pretends to have been a homeless person outside and it's such a great opener because it sets up everything he says afterwards as he's a Weirdo and he does these very perform tive. BITs. That are long and very cartoonish and he commits so hard as knock he's not too cool to perform and that's what i. that's something I really respect somebody who will just lay it on. You know what? I mean by that coach absolutely. No. Especially because you know when you commit, I got a buddy who actually just dropped the album then Jeremy Hawkins I'm yes. Some he commits so hard, and then sometimes you you just reward the the commitment because you're like, oh, he's he didn't leave. He didn't break. He didn't give me an opportunity to to not to to to disconnect from the actual material but at twenty said at about the looking like a homeless guy because I was watching especially special because you you know he send this the clubs and I'm like this guy is in short I was told that no one's allowed to wear shorts on stage. It's like the rule but then this guy is on comedy central wearing shorts and I think he had sandals on I. Think he did. Isn't as a gift the rules it's this is the thing you have to know the rules to break them. They say and he knows all the rules and what he knows is if it fits your character better, there's another comic Charlie. Villa, what the Hell's that guy's name he does the planet Charlie on Comedy Central. This is from years ago, but he also wore shorts I think maybe got a Lotta Shit for it and it is it is this weird rule that's slowly were all shifting from and I think that if you. Have a certain type of act that fits a certain type of look. It makes more sense to dress to fit the look because. I was told this early on comedy is two things. It's audio and visual, and if you see somebody and they don't match what their act is if it's kind of jarring so greer is very smart. Do what he does which is to dress as he is he doesn't spend all though he doesn't always dress like that anymore. I. Mean he he'll at times. It's worse T he's jacked. He is one of these ads such good. Yeah. He's he's jacked man and just cool as hell but. I think he knows the bottom of the barrel the at the end of the day if you're killing nobody's GonNa give you shit about what you're wearing. If you're if you're just really killing and especially the way he kills, which is like I said. Very, vulnerable to to commit the way that you the reason the committing is so hard and and why it's respectable that somebody like Jeremiah or like or like greer or anybody who does somebody like Roy Scoville they commit so hard is that when it doesn't work, it's so much more embarrassing feeling. It feels so much hotter in on your skin when you've done this whole thing and nobody gives. There's eight people in the room. You know what I mean it and you're like, well, there's not really the energy here to do this, but I'm just going to do it anyway and I'm GonNa will this crowd into following me here or they're gonNA think I'm a dumb it has and it's it's really difficult and and the reward is when it works, it's the hardest you've ever laughed so yeah. You gotta see greer live to really to really feel that and yeah, he's allowed to wear shorts I don't think he wears I've I. Don't think I've ever seen him wear shorts at the seller but yeah, I, I don't think that. He would have necessarily a problem with that but I think he dresses are addresses like everybody else at the seller like everybody kind of texture and that's good. That's good. Now, what about this other clip you pick I picked some clips from Rachel Feinstein. We've I think we've played right and show before I'm a huge Rachel Feinstein Fan I I really love her and i. didn't realize before it's funny. I was watching her comedy central presents from way back and I was like this is good but it's not what I remember I remember watching this special the half hour and being mesmerized by I. was blown away because I was like I don't. Have, I not seen this person before this was when I was in college maybe or something like that or. Maybe shortly after but I I was watching I was like this is so funny and it's her old timey woman voice that is just so good interesting. She can talk about sex in a way that doesn't feel as dirty for some reason it's it's very I. think it's I. Love Silly. I've said it on the show before I really like silly whimsical shit and I like really dark and cutting stuff and she does a good job of of slipping and she's also so self deprecating and when I when I used to work on. You up with Nikki Glaser the comedy central show she would come on and be one of my favorite guests. 'cause she would always come on with some disheveled s story about having beef jerky loose beef jerky in her purse and that was. This is my type of person like I. I'm exactly the same way and I just love the hell out of the way she juxtaposes. You know talking about something modern some sort of modern sex thing with this old timey voice it's it's so funny and She's been working her ass off for a long time and I really hope people. See how funny she is she is an hour special on comedy central to she has two hours of material I believe on comedy central alone. So that's a big man in there. Check it out. Big Man we should We should get to some of these jokes that people have sent in. May. Go you guys know it. You love it. We've gotten so many submissions and I WANNA point out real fast. If you don't know how to send these jokes in you, you're gonNA have to maybe go through my instagram now because I have. I was telling people to go on the comedy central website I tried to do that myself. I can't find it so I think. If you Google make Tom and coach laugh either you can find it. But if you go to my instagram time car if you if you click on my I have a link on my little profile or whatever, and goes straight to this linked to send in a cintas jokes. Are they going to put it on my twitter bio two just to make it easier for people but yes and then jokes we like reading them and we got some good ones for two.
A Recipe From Deborah Madison
"This is Deborah Madison the author of an onion in my pocket, and the recipe I want to talk about is an Eggplant Gra ten with a golden. Dome Saffron recalled the custard. This has long been one of my favorite dishes. But when we made it at Greens, I used to add greer cheese to it to make it more substantial main course those who are concerns that that time people felt satisfied I've now taken the greer cheese out since it wasn't there in the original recipe, which is actually by Richard Only, and here's how it goes. So you're GONNA start with about two pounds or a bit more of a plant. All of oil, a small red onion finely diced upon clove of garlic minced a half a teaspoon of herbs vence or a tablespoon margin lease chopped. Two.

Parmigiano reggiano cheese, and finally ten large Basil Leaves tournant pieces. Okay. We're going to heat the oven to four hundred degrees Fahrenheit with and then cut the eggplants in half lengthwise. If you've got just one large eggplant, cut it in quarters, slice each quarter crosswise about a half an inch thick. Slices lightly with oil on both sides and then set them on a sheet pan and bake until the bottom sides have brown. About fifteen minutes. Turn them over and Brown. The second side, this often takes less time. So do check after about eight minutes. When the EGGPLANT is done, remove it from the oven and reduced the heat to three hundred fifty degrees. To, make the tomato sauce warm two tablespoons olive oil in a wide skillet when it's hot at the onion garlic and herb surpr- vence crush I between the fingers or the fresh. Marjoram Stir to the onion with the oil. Then reduce the heat too low and cook gently until the Union is soft twelve to fifteen minutes. Add. The chopped fresh or canned tomatoes raise the heat and cooks during occasionally until the liquid has cooked off and the sauces fairly thick. To make the custard, wisc the aches and stirring the Kota Melk sufferin and Parmigiano reggiano cheese season with a few pinches of salt and some short ground pepper. To assemble the Gratin, choose an earthenware casserole with two inch sides in eight cup capacity. Spread a cup of the sauce and the dish then set down the overlapping layers of a plant. Season it was salt and pepper scatter. Half the torn basil leaves over the surface. Then Dab about a quarter cup of sauce over those plants then make another layer of the remaining eggplant seasoned with salt and pepper add the torn basil and cover with the rest of the tomato sauce for the custard overall and bake until it is golden gently swelled and even Brown in places about forty minutes, we moved from the oven and let the croutons rest for about ten minutes before serving.
Pope endorses same-sex civil unions for the first time as pontiff
"Today said that he could support civil unions for gay and lesbian couples. KCBS HAZMAT Bigler has reaction from faith leaders and the G B T community. In a new documentary, Pope Francis says same sex couples should be legally covered when it comes to civil unions, the pontiff strongest support so far for LGBTQ rights. Obviously, progress in that direction is is good to see, says Tammy Martin, with Equality California The pope has previously said that gay people are Children of God and deserve to be part of the faith family. It is heartening, but it it's not a stance of the quality right for for Greer people. Bernard Slager, executive director of the Center for LGBTQ and Gender Studies at the Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, says Pope Francis seems to be assigning civil unions to the secular realm and not something the Catholic Church would have anything to do with. Nonetheless, it's a big change. Already, The more conservative Catholic publications are calling this a dramatic shift in the Vatican's position, so it is significant. Officially, the Catholic Church teaches that homosexual acts are disordered.
Gerrymandering: How drawing jagged lines can impact an election
"Most people have heard the word gerrymandering once or twice probably during a presidential election. What exactly is gerrymandering essentially, it's the process of giving one political party and advantage over another political party. By Redrawn district lines. It's like Democrats trying to gain advantage over Republicans or Republicans. Trying to gain an advantage over Democrats you see each party wants to gain as many districts as possible. So they can do things like control the state budget or set themselves up to win even more districts in the future. So to understand how this process began and how it continues today, we must go back to eighteen twelve in Massachusetts Albridge Jerry the governor of Massachusetts supported and signed a bill to allow redistricting that is redrawing the boundaries that separate districts the catch, the new lines favor Jerry's political party, the democratic Republican Party which no longer exists. You see Jerry wanted his party to win as many states Senate seats as possible the more members of your party who vote the more likely you are to. Win Election the new lines were drawn to include loads of areas that would help governor Jerry in the future there were so strange looking that someone said, the new districts look like a salamander the Boston Gazette at Jerry's name to the word Salamander and Walla Gerrymandering, the process of dividing up and redrawing districts to give your political party and advantage. So how exactly does someone go about protecting their own political party and actually Gerrymandering district? There are two successful practices packing a district and cracking district. Packing is the process of drawing district lines and packing in your opponents cattle into his few districts. As possible if more districts equals more votes, the fewer the district's there are the fewer votes the opposition party will get. Packing then decreases the opponents voter strengthened influence. Cracking, is the opposite taking one district and cracking it into several pieces. This is usually done in districts where your opponent has many supporters. Cracking spreads these supporters out among many districts denying your opponent, a lot of votes. When, you have a large number of people who generally vote for one type of Party, those folks are known as the voting block cracking as a way to break that all up. So. When would a party choose to pack their opponents districts rather than crack them? Well, that really depends on what the party needs to dilute your opponents voters. You could pack them into one district and lead the surrounding districts with voters of your own party or if you and your partner in power. When it's time to redraw district lines, you could redraw districts and crack up a powerful district and spread your opponents voters out across several neighboring districts. So Governor Jerry and twelve to gain advantage for his party and redrew district lines in his state and such a crazy way. We have a whole new word and way of thinking about how political parties can gain advantages over their opponents. Politicians think of creative ways to draw districts years. So the next time an election comes around and politicians asked people to vote be sure to look up the shape of your district and the district's that surrounded.

It was exciting to me. And I probably could even. Could have been pushed found from my case even.

"greer" Discussed on Conversations
"This is an ABC podcast. The Sydney Rod is festival always has a great buzz. And most as we bring you a live conversation from on site at the festival last year our broadcast live with the very entertaining American writer. Andrew Sean greer. His novel less had recently won the Pulitzer Prize. The only thing was so many of you were there to see Andy and so many people were in the next room listening to another rider at the same time and these two rooms will only separated by a red velvet curtain. So to begin with it was kind of noisy and a little bit crazy. To be honest it was one of those high adrenaline live radio experiences that I think we'll stay with both Andy and myself but hearing Andy Story was also a lot of fun and he has some surprising reflections on family and relationships are hope you enjoy it. He is Andrew Sean Korea from last year's Sydney Writers Festival. Hey Andy Welcome thank you much. What sort of place is Rockville Maryland? Where you grew up Rockville Maryland. That's where I grew up. It is sort of student. Spielberg movie where the kids are on bicycles. And there's little houses that all look like each other. That's where I grew up so a safe place. A Happy Place. It was. Yeah I loved it until I was twelve and then I realized it was nowhere so I was dying to get out but it was good till twelve. Yeah it was very sweet in those years before twelve when you're living in a straight next two houses that all looked pretty much the same. We're all the families pretty similar. Was Your family similar to the people. Nick stole my family was the only not Jewish family in the whole neighborhood so I grew up celebrating Passover and Hanukkah and when it was midst time I was very confused. Why everybody else got a party. And I didn't so my parents through me like a Mitzvah and my brother. I have a twin brother to without the Hebrew in the rabbi but just with the DJ. 'cause I was I felt a little left out. Tell me about growing up with the twin. How big a part of your identity was it as a kid to have a twin. I don't I didn't realize until later that most people grow up first of all and knowing their parents who trying to get them to play with them because they have no one else to play with. And then I've always had someone who agreed with me about absolutely everything all the time really. Yes so it gives you a kind of confidence that you don't like playing twist or neither do I. That's a bad game. No argument you know it's done. You had a mirror image. Just validating your every preference. Yeah we were. We're still incredibly similar live. We used to live until very recently. We had a joining houses with that shared backyard. If you can picture victorians and San Francisco with like a tiny little backyard we we lived together basically until he had two kids and had to get like a bigger place. Ten blocks away which was a little heartbreaking because I had always loved the of just living right next to each other so it growing up. You're identical. Does that mean you ever play tricks on? Parents saw teachers. We were very good boys. We won one time on April Fools Day in sixth grade which we were like eleven or twelve years old we switched outfits because at that point we had really distinctive outfits. My brother would wear a white button not Oxford and carry a briefcase and I was. I looked normal so we switched and switch classrooms and I remember it really well. It was terrifying because everyone thought I was him. They didn't take anything at all. I sat at his desk and the teachers started asking me questions and then I carried it through until the door between the classrooms opened up and my brother was being taken through by my teacher because he had failed completely but it was. We never did it again because it was so scary so you say that I. I'm just not one hundred percent sure that we have the right greer twin with us today at the Sydney Writers Festival. But I guess we'll just ask you the questions and see how we go but I try to get him to show up to things that I can't go to. As recently as last month and he he will not do it. I don't know why would there a lot of books in your house when you were growing up. Andy Yep. My parents both grew up. In the rural South in America places called Kentucky South Carolina which probably brings up like horse ranches and shacks and Country Ham and that kind of thing and their parents were like you know a butcher seamstresses but they both had access to libraries. Which is how they sort of saw world outside of that. My Dad taught himself German from his father's world. War Two emergency kit if you parachuted in to behind enemy lines and you had like a German English dictionary and like Chewing Gum. Chocolate strange kit. So my dad taught himself German from that. I imagine it was fairly specific vocabulary. Like don't shoot. Take Me I. I wish he hadn't I now. I think it was super practical. You know like what is the way out of here. Something like that lease and then my mother daughter of chemistry from books and so to them books were the most amazing thing in the world because they were the way out. My parents both became chemistry professors. And they let me and my brother. Our library was altogether children's books and adults books and they. They let us pick up anything they said. Nothing is going GonNa hurt you. We would read some pretty adult life. What would the racier books on the show? Kama Sutra save pretty racy but like I feel. It didn't hurt me so you were saying that Rockville was a great place to about twelve. What changed when you were a teenager. Well I started going to a school Rockville outside of Washington. Dc and I started going to school in Washington DC. And then I met city kids and city kids were. This is the eighties so they were like punk rock. They were listening to you. Know outrageous vinyl forty fives that they older brothers gave them and I was so on cool. I got to get some sort of you know there were like Alma. Dove are films and they would dress in vintage clothes and that was so foreign and I wanted to.

Fashion and War in America
"Are currently in the midst of international fashion week. Yes and last week. We talked about the origins of the semi-chaotic relationship between fashion and Hollywood film. But we only got into the nineteen thirties so today. We're moving out of the thirties and into the nineteen forties. Which of course takes US straight into World War Two and on the show? We've talked a lot about fashion and war as it relates to Europe during World War One and World War Two but less so about the relationship fashion and war in America and it's actually incredibly fascinating because throughout the nineteen thirties. America's changing perception of their homegrown talent was reflected in Ariz- leading fashion magazines. Such as Vogue and Harper's bazaar at both of those magazines began to feature American fashion designers more and more throughout the decade. Elizabeth Haase reflected on this transitory period in American fashion in her book. Fashion is spinach which was published in nineteen thirty eight and in it. She writes quote in the late twenties ninety percent of the drawings and photographs. Where the work? A prison couturiers and. She's talking about Vogue and Harper's bazaar and then she says many pages and both magazines are now devoted to close created in America for American Life. The outbreak of World War Two and nineteen thirty nine mark significant shift in the fate of American designers who having continued to operate in the shadow of Paris throughout the nineteen thirties. Were suddenly left to stand all on their own and during the German occupation of Paris from June nineteen forty to August nineteen forty four. Many of the leading French couture houses were forced to close and those that did remain open did so under severely limited operations and some pretty severe restrictions as well right and for those of our listeners. Who might not have heard? April actually did a fantastic interview on stuff. You Mr History class which we featured a couple months ago so check it out if you want to learn more about fashion world war two so for the French fashion industry. This meant that communication with America during World War Two. It meant that one of their most important export markets was almost entirely broken and in one thousand nine hundred one after American designers and manufacturers presented promising fall and spring collections New York Times fashion journalist Virginia Pope well. She declared Murck City to be the fashion center of the world and AIRCON designers may have come into their own during the war but they did so under restriction and regulation beginning in nineteen forty two American fashion designers had to grapple with restrictions imposed by regulation l eighty five which were government imposed sanctions at severely limited. Just what designers could and could not produce the purpose of l. eighty-five was to conserve materials. Needed for the war effort and this included fabrics such as silk cotton wool. Leather Rubber Nylon. So you know pretty much. Every material that you need to make clothing and footwear and the regulations thus restricted just. How much material could be used in the making of new garments so we had campaign such as make-do-and-mend which encouraged people to avoid shopping altogether by mending their old clothes. Something we of course support very much today. L. eighty-five essentially challenge the very nature of the fashion industry itself. As we all know depends on the production of new seasonal clothing styles to stimulate consumerism and as we establish last episode Hollywood films while they were actively complacent and encouraging fashion consumption throughout the nineteen thirties and costume designers like their fashion designer. Counterparts were not exempt from L. Eighty five regulations during the war in an eighteen. Forty four article in the New York Times renowned Hollywood costume designer. Edith head called L. Eighty five quote. The greatest boone ever came to fashion designers in Hollywood so it would appear casts that in the nineteen forties costume designers still considered themselves as fashion designers. And she goes on to say about eighty-five quote. It vanished super luxury and brought us all down to Earth. Today we create sensible styles for women the kind that they can actually wear and she goes on to say how. Well I remember the day when we would swirl Fox skins around the hem of a secretary address or wipe satin uniform on a trained nurse. Now we hold to stark realism and by this time had been the head designer at paramount. For seven years she had taken over for her predecessor. Travis Banton in nineteen thirty seven and head like baton began her career in film working with Howard greer in the nineteen twenties as a costume illustrator before climbing the ranks and indeed head is certainly one of the most prolific and fame designers from the Hollywood golden age. Numerous books have been written about this prolific designer who April has eight Academy Awards for best costume design and wait for it. She has four hundred and forty four credits. On that's intense. She worked for almost sixty years in the film industry so she had an incredible career her first credit it dates to nineteen twenty five and her last film is dead. Men Don't wear plaid with Steve Martin. That released after her death in nineteen eighty two so she died in one thousand nine hundred. One at the age of eighty. Three head is quoted and Margaret Bailey's nineteen eighty-two book those Glorious Glamour Years as saying quote. I do not consider a motion picture costume designer necessarily a fashion creator because we do the script tells us to if we do a period piece then we recreate fashion. That was done before. And if we have a character role we do character close. It is only by the accident of a script that calls for fashion an actress that can wear fashion that some of the beautiful clothes will emerge. I don't consider myself a designer in the sense of fashion designer. I am a motion picture costume designer. So just how did head go from identifying as a fashion designer in Hollywood and the nineteen forties to firmly distinguishing herself as a costume designer by the end of her career? I love this answer. You pro because it actually lies with the advent of yours new-look which is a little unexpected as many of us know nineteen forty seven witnessed this dramatic and sudden change in fashion. Thanks to the unprecedented success of Christiane Yours Premier collection and he introduced dresses with nipped in ways. Those padded hips and full long skirts and they stood in direct contrast to the war regulated fashions of years prior which is why so many people loved them. Unfortunately for the many films released the year that this change took place. The costumes were immediately glaringly out of fashion again. Dino Dior's new look was significant reminder. That though film cost you may be perceived and interpreted as fashion it will never be able to truly contend with the whims and follies of contemporary trends. And Edith. Had designed costumes for eleven films that were released in nineteen forty seven so to say that she was affected is a bit of an understatement. Here and looking on this period for the book. Edith head's Hollywood edith reflected quote. I learned my lesson. The hard way just offered Dior brought out the new look every film I had done in the past few months. Looked like something from the bread lines with each screening. I vowed that I would never get caught by fashion trend again and became a confirmed fence sitter. Although despite her weariness of fashion trends did not keep her designs from apparently sparking them as was the case with address she designed for Elizabeth Taylor and a place in the sun which was a nineteen fifty film in a nineteen seventy-eight article for the American Film Journal. Edith wrote my dress for Elizabeth Taylor and a place in the sun was taken up by manufacturer of debutante Party dresses. Someone at paramount wants counted at a party thirty seven Elizabeth Taylor's dancing. All studio designers have created something that influences fashion. But a good costume designer. Shouldn't try to influence style though. Naturally he hopes to hit upon something that many people will like
"greer" Discussed on Anna Faris Is Unqualified
"Emily. Hi It's on affairs. Hi Emily Oh my Gosh. Hi. I'm here Judy. Greer high. Emily my gosh. Thank you so much. What is happening? I've been in a relationship with a guy from my work for about a year. We're like ten months nine months. Maybe and do you have a ton of stuff in common and really hit it off. So it's been going really well so far all my friends really like him and I have a couple of different question for both you. The first is that we have a pretty big age difference than our relationship I don't think it impacts us like ninety nine percent of the time but I definitely find myself kinda going down like a little spiral in my own head about like. Oh like is our time like GonNa work out like how to like. I catch myself thinking about like things out of control a lot and I wanted to know how I can just like. Tend to focus on the now and all the fun stuff. We do together rather than think about things that are so far in the future and out of our control. So that's the first part and then the second part is I've lost touch with one of my closest friends. They started dating this guy. Oh Okay when you said ninety nine percent of the time what is that one percent I think sometimes in my head I'm like Oh my God like is our age difference. GonNa be like it's definitely just me. I don't think he really thinks about it. Ever it's definitely just my own mind and I'll be like Oh my God like like just by or things that I'm like you know. What is the age difference exactly? So it's like pretty substantial it's like eighteen years okay. Do you guys talk already about getting married and having a family together. No not really. I mean we'd like danced around the subject. Just 'cause you know we. We both have friends who are kind of in that place in their lives and like neither of us are ready for that just yet like the answer on the subject. But we haven't point blank. Do you WanNa marry me or not right right and Emily your twenty s I am. I'm twenty three so are definitely things that you're worrying about. That are out of your control right now or just like worrying about what I would imagine would be kind of far into the future. If you guys were to to get married and have kids I totally understand the desire for security I like the feeling of security and I like being in a monogamous relationship. So you guys work together. Do you still work together. Yeah I thought he was cute. And I kind of Percy him and then our mutual friend Chris you kinda helped play matchmaker and then he was like yeah. She's cute sure. I think I want to do with her. Yeah we've been dating since last May well. I think it sounds like you guys are having a really good time. It sounds like your friends like him. It sounds like things at work seems to be working with you guys working together. That's a secret at work or do people. No no I like straight up told. Hr The day that we decided to go on a date. I was like just so you know. Is this okay? And they were like absolutely because we just the only rule was that we just can be each other's bosses which were not so. Okay so yes. It's not a strict. Everybody knows you guys have fun together. Oh yeah absolutely like we can pretty much do. We can do fun stuff like go out and then we can also just like sit on the couch and that's awesome too and so does your family know him. Yeah my parents actually just met him My parents my cousin and then like a couple of really close friends too and they all thought he was a solid guy. I mean I think it's always awkward like them rewrite. Do your parents have issues with the age difference? I think they were Kinda surprised that I think they were like. Oh Wow that's a big one and then the more I talked to other family members and friends were like. Oh I think that makes perfect sense freeze so I think for some people like really didn't surprise them which was kind of reassuring. Yeah I think the only thing that I've seen when my friends have dated guys. That are a lot older. Is that sometimes without? Maybe even being very conscious of it and older Ma'am can be a little bit patronizing And you know when there is an age difference. Life has accumulated for obviously the older person. But I think for me that would be something that I would flag but it sounds like you guys are super happy to spend time with each other's friends only a couple of his friends that one of his best friends. I actually work with also of course But we get along. Just fine emily. That's awesome. I'm happy for you. I don't really see any anything. Seems like you're happy and you're but I think you should be careful not to get ahead of yourself and take it one day at a time and you don't have to stress yourself out thinking about what if like how old for this in how old for that just like focus right now right having fun together. Yeah I think we're all guilty of like wanting to have everything planned out and that's just impossible so if you can just sort of like about the here and now with him and like judy sad like you know whatever snuggle on the couch and but I yeah. I don't think you've got so much time to think about the other things. And if he's never been married before I would just be cautious just yet you incorporated as part of dialogue on a regular basis. Yeah has he been in a long relationship? Yeah he has. His last girlfriend was like a nine year thing. And he was the one to initiate the break-up when a Finally parted ways but he said it had been you know how like it was ready to happen for a long time and she definitely had like a lot of issues and I think that he kinda house like a secret like he wants to help people you know. He's like such a nice guy and I don't need to be helped so let's just clear that up you don't need to be fixed and lay. This sounds really good give. There's trouble in the waters. Let us know. I'm really happy for you. Do you want to ask the other question? That was interesting to me. Talked so our relationship is like progressing really well but one of my biggest pet peeves is like when someone gets into a relationship and then they kind of like prioritize that over all their friends like that sucks and that happens when you're the friend who lose a friend and so. I've always been really conscious of like making sure that I'll do I. Have this awesome new person in my life. I'm like still paying attention to like. All of my non romantic relationships you know and What am I best friends in the whole world? He and I have not been able to connect I think since I started dating him like last year. And it's been definitely eating away at me. I feel like I've reached out. She's reached out like our timing is always often like if I bring him up before like tatting in staff and I bring up a story that he's in or something she kind of just like one word answers and like tries to skim around the topic and I don't know it's just been bothering me. She's never even met him if he doesn't know anything about him. So it's just been like really frustrating. I'm so the friend that dumps all my friends. I'm the word that's why I don't have any friends you can even dump me. I will back I. I think maybe you're asking. Emily is issue punishing you. It sounds a little bit like that. It sounds like she's hurt. Yeah I mean. She's definitely like she's never really been in a relationship and I think she kind of is like for a while we were always you know like single together and that was definitely something that you'd like chat about bond over and I think now that I'm not maybe that's hard like I don't know and I don't mean to like aunt myself up trust me. It took awhile to like. Get anybody to date me but I think that maybe that's part of it for her as well. Yeah completely. She's lonely and comparing. The good news is friends. Get a little bit less like that as they get older because people then start to have even more and more of their own shit going on. It's very good news for me but you've as a young close and so I think you have to nurture her a little bit but I also don't know if you need to feel guilty in anyway because you're in you're in live doing your thing. And maybe you know you can apologize for neglecting the friendship or just apologize for missing you change. Not wanted to meet him. No she has not met him But does it. Because she didn't want to offered it and then like every time like I don't know Canada's can't connect I guess right which is very sky belushi caller? And you should I try to schedule. Just the two of you like a hang up time. Yeah and then you know when it comes up. I think like with peace and love. Ask Her like I noticed this reaction from you when I talk about him and I wanted to know why that is And just like ask her like honestly you know yeah and always be careful about instigating those conversations with booze because they can get okay digging but try to have an honest conversation with her and then you know I would just say like it would mean a lot to me if you would try to meet him and then if you meet him and you don't like I can't argue with that but like right leaving met him yet so you know not I make sense. Yeah I think you may need to pet her. She might need some T. V. Yeah Yeah and you know. There's jealousy you know. There's all kinds of things that we probably all. Could she be in love with you? I think that'd be a really good story a fair enough that I don't think so it's actually been like up to by like other friends. We've had like Oh like where you guys and I'm like no like just not my thing like rock on if it is but no nothing like that and she is interested in men but I'm not sure if she's Bisexual. I know I'm not but like again like rock on like do your thing. Yeah corners. Maybe she's like an introvert kind of like like I am where I only have like two or three friends because I feel really close to them right so she could have. Maybe felt a little more bonded to you right. I think you might have to olive branch to her and and just tell her how much you love. Her and miss early could also like maybe writer a letter and send it to her in the mail. Yeah I totally agree that like on a really beautiful card and just tell her how you feel that you miss her new lover and you know you don't want to keep bugging her. She doesn't want to have a relationship with you right now. But you really miss if you keep trying to make plans with her and she doesn't reciprocate than I think. You should write a letter. Okay but I think you should keep trying to like hang out with her. Get Her to talk to you. Okay Emily thank you so much I love you. Thank you thank you thanks emily. Good luck thank you bye. Bye Joke.
"greer" Discussed on Anna Faris Is Unqualified
"Of our sponsors support some qualified okay. Well let's caller. Hello Hayes Jessica yes. Hey It's on affairs he Ana Jessica. This is Judy greer Judy. I'm such a fan of both of you you you tell us what's going on. Yeah so I'm thirty two years old and I recently separated from my husband advisors and it's just one of those experiences that I feel like these you so stripped of yourself and you know you put so much work into something and there's so much grief and sadness that comes from walking away from it that it just kind of feels like a bomb went off and you take a step back and we see all the pieces of your life and you're like how do I begin again and they haven't really given up on wanting a partner and a family and children and I know that I'm not unique in this situation. I know a lot of people can relate and I just kind of wanted to see what you guys think. And how do you begin to put everything back together and dating dating just first of all? You're so any so young even if whatever you're eighty three I mean and La thirty years basically eighteen totally but one really commend you for having the strength to leave a marriage that you were unhappy in because that is a really difficult thing to do. There's a lot of societal pressures you know. In my case it felt like a public failure. The first time around felt like a failure with my friends and family. You know people who like but then I realized is that people that love me and care about me. Just WanNa make sure that I'm happy. And also people don't obsess about me as much as I obsess about me. Turns out huge through those are good things just to keep in the back of your mind. I bet the people who are close with you completely understand. And hopefully they're really supportive. Do you have a nice support system? Absolutely my friends and my family. Everyone has been very supportive and I have not felt ashamed or anything like that. Oh good or my decision. So I'm very fortunate and thankful for that. You know in your letter when you just talked about how much effort you put into a relationship and I think that that's often the case and then finally it's like man. I've been hoping this person will change for years now and finally. There's just that moment where it's like. Whatever I'm doing is not working and I'm giving so much of my energy to try to force this thing to work or whatever and then one day it's like now. I just really don't WanNa do that anymore. And you my experience. The dude has always been shocked like what? Yeah I've been telling you. Yeah we're fucking ten year right right. Do you feel a sense of relief at all. Yeah and that's kind of what's interesting about this experience is. I'm very comfortable with the decision and I feel very secure about it. Do you feel guilty that you're happy. Maybe obviously it's not just my life that has changed you know it's the other person and even though I feel secure in my relationships there's days where you just feel their sense of grief and who was I before this relationship you give so much of yourself that you forget to take care of yourself and now you know me and my cat and like what do I like you do. Whatever right now and things like that because you haven't been allowed to like live your life you've I know. Is Nick kind of exciting to be like? I don't have to call anybody. Oh I know that I'm going to see what this crazy. I don't eat dinner tonight to like. I don't WanNa do. I remember that feeling after my last horrible break up that I was going to a museum and they left my cell phone in my hotel room because I was like. I don't have to have my cellphone on me like I can actually do a thing. Not Yeah like have this thing. Attached to me in case God forbid he calls a NATO pick up and or whatever whatever your version is Jessica but you know. I'm sure you're feeling relief but I kind of feel like you. Maybe you should date a little if I can be so bold to fit your in the habit of being in a relationship and being a caretaker so like what you don't want to happen is to get right into another relationship right but it's like you know you might have fun. You need to learn that like men can be fun. Dating can be fun. And it can be easy and funds so that would be like maybe a grading to do but be careful about just going right back into your old patterns. It's like muscle memory. You're right like you know how to be a wife and what you don't want to do is be a wife. You just WANNA be date right. I love that you said that Judy. Oh good I thought it was interesting you asked about. Do you feel guilty about having happy. We don't even understand always the compromises that we make when in a bad relationship because so much of it is like treading water. You're just treading water. You're not making any changes in yourself because you can't because you're just trying to stay alive and it's only until you're out of it and you can look at it. It can be like shit like what was I doing. Why did I hate myself so much? Why was I allowing myself to be treated this way or allowing myself to be so unhappy and you're so young you should not be unhappy. You should be happy and things should be easy and fun. Because they're just GONNA GET HARDER. They just are so like if a relationship isn't fun and easy in the beginning seriously walkaway. Because Shit's going to get real eventually. Okay I remember thinking like not to be morbid but this is the man I went standing next to me when my parents die and that was always a really good barometer for me because I was like this guy is an asshole secre barometer. Is this person that can help me through that kind of grief right. How long ago did you separate or come out on nine months? Okay how are things with him? They're pretty amicable. Which and thankful for a good. I think we both have an understanding of having less. Something wasn't working. And that kind of you know eases the pain a little bit Kinda But it's just weird like it all feel surreal. You know like being with someone for much part of your life and then you're not I can't even imagine like wing next to someone. Oh and I'm not even sure I want that but like I like Paul on touched on societal pressure. I feel like because I'm thirty two. I should be looking for someone. I should be wanting to get married right now. And then she'd be thinking about you know my God I'm not going to have children or whatever plenty of time you have plenty of time in. This is what we do to ourselves. You know pressuring yourself or absorbing the pressure of society but if you can sort of put that in its own category and try to ignore it because you don't WanNa be standing at your parents funeral to somebody that you're paying too because he's wanted to have a baby right. You're right you can play a got plenty of time and be. I think you should have some fun for a couple of years and like do some fun stuff and take some fun trips and focus on your female friendships and like do some traveling get out go places and do some stuff and meet some other people in other parts of the world and have some fun and just try not to worry about that. Like biological clock. I need to do this now. Because you've got so much time and this is a time where you like date yourself. That and I also think Jessica At least what. I found after going like during my break-up periods as I go through these times were felt like fearlessly. Hopefully not cruelly in any way but fearlessly honest. I really liked seeing that side of me so I feel like when you do start dating especially if you're into somebody. I think that you know saying like hey I just want to be a front. I was in a marriage. I'm kind of just getting back on this horse. I'm really excited. You seem really cool. I just wanted to make sure you knew that. And 'cause you know because you're probably GonNa Fall in love with me and I'm just telling you right now it's just we're not going to be exclusive. I love that you guys mentioned you know not feeling tied to the time line because at the end of the day like I do feel that excitement to date myself and I do feel that excitement to do what Jessica once Ya Hell. Yeah because some of my friends were like. Oh you know you need to get back out there and kind of a traditional person in the sense like I'm not just going to be intimate with just anyone and so we're all like hanging out and they're like you should join timber and so I did it and it was horrible. Men feel so entitled to be like. So what is your bottom half look like been worth me paying dinner and I was just like oh no and you're right. I don't force the time line and I feel like putting myself out there sooner than I'm ready would not seems all yes. I would socialize with your friends. Get to know people with like so. I mean that's I say having never been on a dating APP but but it just feels tariff if it just feels like that's a way for me to feel really bad about myself quickly. Yeah where'd become like immediately obsessed with like checking it and I don't think I don't. I haven't done them in time. You Might WanNa do that but I feel like you have a lot to explore. I all your friends married. Maria weddings are such great places to meet people thing than show others. I know brothers cousins. Ask Your friends to fix you up with people because the APP thing. I don't think that's for me. Yeah certainly not now. It's the end intense. Ask Your friends has your girlfriend's bins for like people. Were they work or you know like setups like that? I like that you also like you have to go to parties barbecues. You have to do that. Which sucks sometimes. One of my best friends single. And she like really. Does I really proud of her? She really does put herself out there like she goes to things when she's invited to them. She goes to the party she goes to like. There's a cool art exhibit or something like she does. That are having a hard time with the APPS. Yeah and she's also very open about like. Is there anyone on your new job? That like is cute single that you would want to fix up with like. She's always asking me that Judy met her. I met my husband blind. Date my husband on a blind date when I was thirty five I think by the way our cool you are so young. I can't reiterate that enough. You know you. It's such a blessing that you did not have a baby with this guy and that you can now look for someone who have a family with and even though you can love him forever. 'cause they'll always whole does special place in your heart and your head and that's okay. You can lovingly. Let him go and have his awesome life so that you can have your awesome. Yeah I like that loving way letting someone go. Yeah Jessica thank you so much. I love you very much. Thank you for doing this. I love you thank. You aren't seeing Judy. You guys are awesome by Jessica by. Hello Hi.
"greer" Discussed on Anna Faris Is Unqualified
"'cause I don't find the answer is yes but I do why they hired you because that makes their job easier and that's fucked up and it's a compliment at the same time because it shouldn't be our responsibility to bring a poorly written supporting character to life.

I put as my middle name so that I would still have like a dad name in my name because I do think it was like. Maybe a small bummer. I don't know he's never said anything like that. But there was already a Judi Evans in SAG. She's on the soap opera so I had to choose another name so I decided I was going to be Judy McGuire. That was my grandma's maiden name they thought it was super cute and it was like I think I made this decision one night and I went to bed and I woke up the next morning and there was like billboards all over Chicago. I was in college at the time for this movie. Jerry Maguire. That was going to come out and I was like well. I don't WanNa be Judy McGuire like now.

Because I didn't pick up because I didn't know who was and was like hello. My name is Dean Johnson. And I'm going to ask you out on a date so cute. I still have the message really. I actually saved it. Unlike a tape recorder that I went and bought like office depot just to save the message because I knew and I switched phones or something like Shit was GonNa get deleted and I was like I can't I have. I saved his first. Five voice mails because they will funny and he knew what I look like but I didn't know what he looked like signing facebook so he was like me to send you a picture before I pick you up for the date and I was like no. It's fine like I dunno weirded out like what if he wasn't attractive and I liked him so much from talking to him on the phone. You know what I mean. Yeah and I like.

Where'd you case? We went to Katsuya in Hollywood and now I laugh so hard that he took me. They're good so not a place we would go even those delicious he was like. I don't know where do you take actresses to eat and like all the like political comedy nerds at his work. Where like we'll all go to cut through Ya? They all eat there every night. So that's where you have to take like. So that's where we're going.

Whatever you get all the funny thing is like if you've been to which clearly you have because you're an actress in Hollywood. You'll know the bathrooms in the restaurant down this really dark hallway and you go down like a black calway. There's like no light. You go into the men's or the women's like we said through dinner and we go to the bathroom before we're leaving the restaurant and he goes in his bathroom and I go in mind and I come out. And there's a man standing in the hallway and I was like standing in the hallway by the door waiting for to come out of the bat and Lake. No idea that it was him. He goes shoe. We yet totally look. I was pretending to look at the art problema man standing in the hallway and I was so terrified that my date was gonna come out of the bathroom and see me looking at another guy. 'cause like a really fun dinner with them and they really liked them and I was afraid I was like can't even look at him. Also I was in a very guess emotionally abusive relationship before dean. I was trained to like never look at anyone so I was like always looking down and I'm like I knew there was a man standing in front of me but I was like I even look up at him for a second. That's when Dean walk out of the bathroom and see me looking in another guy and it'll be awful and I'll feel so bad and so I was just like so I didn't even really give him a good look but yeah I had no memory really of what he looked like. It turned out when he was standing in a dark hallway and then we laughed about it later because he was like. I was kind of unsure because it was so dark but I was afraid then because you were standing there for so long and I didn't know a weird but then we went across the street in like drink a bunch of Guinness and it was fine.

"greer" Discussed on Anna Faris Is Unqualified
"I was Co parented by my quiet patient. Dad and impossible. Mom Britney story about Jay made me a bit emotional especially when you ask Britney if jade was safe and Brittany started to get choked up. I love my mom now but she did some questionable things when I was younger and I recognize similar patterns between my mom's behavior jade's mom's behavior as a registered nurse at become familiar with various types of mental illness and I suspect jade's mom might suffer from something along those lines. Of course I am not in any position to tell someone how to parent but if there is the slightest chance that jade is in an unsafe household. I do think her dad should consider legal action. I wish someone had saved me during my childhood and unfortunately I think jade needs to be saved. Britney seems absolutely awesome and a great role model. But I think it's time for her boyfriend to step in for real. It's really about jade at this point. Right love you Robyn. Thank you so much robin this next letter is from Jennifer to Andrea who he called Jason Biggs Jennifer writes. Hi Ana I'm listening to your Jason Biggs episode in the call with Andrea. I must say I have to agree with Jason on this one being a friend means to be open and honest no matter how hard the situation may be. I agree with you in the money. Her husband loaned should be swept under the rug without the continued backtracking but their friendship is another story a few years ago. I was in a very unstable relationship. I was financially independent but the man I was with was not. He borrowed money from family friends even as boss without my knowledge. If I would have known these things I could have taken a step back and reexamined our relationship and what I wanted in life. Andrew's friend deserves to know the truth about the man she's with maybe the strain on their friendship from holding in such a secret will benefit from her honesty. All My love Jen. Thank you Robin so much. Thank you Jenn. Thank you dear listeners. Please help the unqualified community. Grow by sending US your questions. Your answers in your stories. Just go to our website. Unqualified DOT COM. And now. Here's Judy greer await I forgot one last thing. Stick around for the end of the episode to Hear Judy. Tell her favorite jokes. A warn you that one of them particularly dirty bomb Ladies and gentlemen you're listening to qualify with their host on the first you know the five stages of an actress's career who is Judy greer. That Judy greer. She's really got something. Get Me Judy greer. I want a young judy greer. Who is Judy greer? And I was like you're so mean I always think that like you know you've made it as an actress when you've died. Hopefully it's murder like just in terms of your character journey. Okay you've had a baby you've played a prostitute And done all these data drug addict. Sex Addict does yet higher okay. You are tipsy. Mom I was. I mean I don't know if that really counts. No I definitely played like a sex addict so I feel like that. It's an addiction. Yeah sure that's Kinda Fun was at a nursing. Who was that it was? This movie did with Natasha. Leone called addicted to Fresno. Oh that was an indie that I really loved making yeah. My character was a sex addict who she got kicked out of Rehab but she lied about it. I'm looking at my phone because I go down something before you walked in that. I really want to record you watching this. Oh this is On Youtube and I just found it. Oh dear there's a VHS tape that is going into VHS player fine Oh My fucking God is the Ninety Ninety. Nine baby literally have no memory. Hey guys I found the sea to video of Judy on love line. I see myself deluxe. Now I have to go home and watch that. Yeah Oh it's a Larry Yeah I sort of feel like maybe that was tape somewhere in Hollywood. I mean I had only been living in La really well. That's what I wanted to ask. You was nineteen ninety nine. When did you move here? Think moved here ninety eight because I did John Breaker and that was Julie. So it was looking for was my first job that I got. I was here just visiting booked job breaker and a TV pilot. Which didn't get picked up. Yeah and I like just obviously decided to stay because I was working. That's amazing though and when young actors like do you have any advice and like no? I don't I don't know how you make it in this business. I don't because it was very easy for me. I'll just be honest. We have it. You had years of training and I'm sure you went through like you know rejection like you know through college and everything I would imagine I mean yeah like I thought for a long time that going to acting school was stupid idea like once I started acting professionally I was like why did I do that. Like you don't need to like learn to act and then I've realized since I've come full circle and like everyone should at least study. Was someone. Yeah you know like I think it's really helpful and recently I've just started using coach again really. I've ever used a coach but I just started using a coach like two or three years ago. This amazing woman named Nancy Banks and I love it because like I don't have time to go to acting class. I'd love to be an acting class. Love to take Nancy's acting class but you know I'm busy working God. I'm terrified of using an acting coach. It's great you should call her if you ever want to be like the right fit because it does. It's like a therapist to find someone that like. I enjoy tough love personally. And she's like that and she's cuts to the chase and you know she's not like she's not like a ham holder like oh wondering okay. That's right that's right good. And then you know she also like. I'm so cheap and Western but I feel like she's very conscious of our how much I'm spending. She's always like we got it. Let's move on. I really like a lot. Well it's nice to have like efficiency. I really cherish efficiency because I really like it when director will give me a line reading me too because I'll get frustrated myself if I'm not able to unlock what he or she is saying. Ninety percent. Yes let's talk about that. Yeah no kidding I do WanNa talk about some of that stuff. Actually I was thinking about that with you because I haven't talked too much sort of the shifts in Hollywood with too many of my guests at all so you got here ninety eight. I got her in ninety nine so we kind of had the same like experience in terms of back in the day when you go out for three auditions a day. Whatever you're running all over town you're closing your car your car. I mean dudes could've seen so many boobs if they knew Like a dude changing pants and his car that was like I wonder if he's like honestly then but now it feels to me. It's essential for actors to be proactive. In a way that we was just different thrown drag. I started feeling it in around two thousand seven that suddenly there weren't as many movies. I wasn't getting auditions and it felt like at thirty. I was like is the town trying to tell me that it's ready for me to leave. Like do a need to think about the English degree and how bad I am at writing and I don't know how to use what are GONNA have heaters so it was around then that I felt like oh maybe I have to start hustle like yeah like figuring out how I can generate my own work and I started like working with writers and stuff and a couple of things when I was thrilling. And then you know a bunch of things didn't but do you feel that same way. Yeah and then making like a yes face. Because I don't know I work really hard but I think I did like it better when they told me worthy ambition was and I tried really hard to get the bar and then I know because now I do think there's like if you're not writing your own content and if you're not like proactively pitching yourself ratings something for yourself to star in or do or you're not producing on the side. Then what are you doing? You're wasting these opportunities. And I think that's a lot of pressure for us to have on ourselves and I think we put this pressure on ourselves because like a weird way this businesses. A Little League sports in there is an element of competition. I think just in you know like how do I get better? And how do I make sure that like you know doing something that I can do? Even when I get older like or if I don't WanNa work so hard. I can do this instead or something. I don't know I do feel a lot of pressure like we have to do that. And you're right. I wouldn't say that I necessarily totally enjoy it. We'll you're right in the sense that usually by the time we get to like the audition process there was an eighty percent chance that the project was gonna go far enough along but like that creation process. It's feels like it's so far in the distance that it feels like yeah impossible achievable. I don't know and it so I know and it also felt really good to win a roll through an audition rolling. I still love that. Still have to get a part and I'm just like yeah and I still get really nervous when I get offered roles and I go to say I'm like we've talked about. They don't know what I'm doing. It makes me like so nervous at least in the audition like my last conditioned since I do this show called kidding and I- addition for it and it was like such a bad audition and I like went to my car and cried because I was like. I'm so perfect for this role. How could I have fucked it up so much but I got it then feeling like like they're sending your taped Jim Carey and I'm like I couldn't believe it because I thought it was such a bad audition and then it just getting the role like that much better. I know it's such a victory. Yeah but then. When in pitching something of my own I get exhausted sometimes before even the first pitch because looking at something. And you're like this is going to be two to three years of my life like to find a writer who's willing to write this even though it's not their idea which I don't know if you have a problem with that and should people wanna right tons of stuff for you but like I have a problem sometimes. Finding someone that like will be willing to write a thing. That isn't their own story. You know what I mean. Because they want to have ownership over which they should and I don't write like that so I'm not gonNA write it. I wrote a romantic comedy. That was three hundred pages long lake. It was like awful and I don't know I find that the development process is so long and I don't know you're also catching me on a day where I just wrap something and I'm like I'm like I know I probably I'm sounding like really I don't mean to it all but sometimes it's like I miss the day when yes something like pretty much about to be done and that's why they're casting was it a lotta shoots to. It really wasn't because we were into studio which was nice. Yeah it was really good in the beginning. It was like a couple of nights but mostly it was just in the studio so that was good. We have a lot of control over that. And we can't tell us if you die or not but I can't tell you that if you get it or bad you make character goes through a real journey. Oh she gets an emotional support dog and the dog of Darts to kill the people that upset her. Oh it's a loyal talk just like why are you talk? I think she has killed anyone that I know of. At least not since I've had her but not for lack of trying to rescue back yes. She's so awesome. Maybe like she's actually alter ego because I'm always nice and friendly and happy and then I had this little dog that's like and I'm like that's sometimes how I really. But did you studied comedy or was that even a thing when you were studying acting. No it was just theater school. I went to school to be a stage actress. I don't know and we did a lot of Improv. At my school a ton. Actually which is weird because Improv is such a thing now and they just thought it was a way for us to do scenes all the time where you don't have to learn your lines all the time but it really has helped probably like more than anything. It was so much more fun. It was fun because you get up there. And you're just like you're never really improving because it was acting school not like comedy school. We weren't improving to be funny. You know like there's sometimes where are scenes a get released darker really creepy but it was a good way to just act quickly without having delight. Go home and take a scene really forces you to engage with your actor you to be good at Improv. Break guests. You have listened which you don't have to do necessarily when you're acting after I've I've learned from people I've acted it'd be like if you listen to what I was saying. You would remember your line because I'm asking you a question. You could just answer. That would be your lines. It's so easy actually. Okay you doing your term. I call the balanced board like the female character to the guy who gets a ton of fun I feel like the landscape is shifting last few years and I always get worried like did they hire me in the hopes that I would elevate this..
Fashion at the Oscars, an Interview with Author Bronwyn Cosgrave
"Here to talk about the Academy Awards wisher just this past. Sunday right casts. Yes now I get to talk about all things red carpet I mean. This is arguably the Oscars arguably the most highly anticipated of all red carpets throughout the year. So you know we're here to talk about the Academy Awards and the Academy. Awards is the annual event of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences which is an organization established by among others American Phil Magnet Louis. B. Mayer who was co founder of the Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios and it was founded in nineteen twenty seven and the academy originally had about thirty six members and that included quote unquote. Hollywood royalty like Douglas Fairbanks and his wife at the time. Mary Pickford and the Academy was really focused on promoting the Hollywood film industry at a time when it was not yet. The nationally internationally celebrated epicenter film production that it is today so the Academy Awards. Ceremony was instrumental in helping establish. The Hollywood film industry's reputation by celebrating. Its achievements across five branches so giving awards to producers actors directors writers and technicians and the First Academy Awards was held in Nineteen Twenty nine and unlike today it was not a broadcast event but was rather a ticketed private dinner that was attended by two hundred and seventy invited guests and this was held at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in L. A. Dismay will mark ninety one years since the Academy Awards debuted on May Sixteenth. Nineteen twenty nine and things. Well you could say that they've changed just a tad today. The Academy's membership has blossomed from thirty six members to somewhere close to a thousand and from its original five branches. It now has seventeen. Over twenty million people across the US tune into the Oscars each year and has really become one of the most highly anticipated televised award shows of the season and millions of us tune in just for the pre show. I would argue and we do that because we WanNa see our beloved movie. Stars walk the red carpet and why can only be described as high style? I mean so. Central is celebrity dress to the Oscars that the pre show is televised live so that viewers like April and I am Oliver Address. Listeners can get up close views of their favorite celebrities attires before they even take their seats so talk show hosts interviews stars about what they wear while others give a play by play in studio and you know on various platforms across the Internet. I know I shared all of my favorites on instagram. And the revelry all things Oscars fashion does not end here of course in the days and weeks that follow as in every year a ceremony and special edition magazines will be printed that are dedicated to this red carpet fashion and of course the Internet will be aflame with talk of the best and worst dressed. Cast we've come a long way from that very first private dinner in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine and this has sparked our curiosity about just winded. The Oscars become as much about fashion as film and I started to research this topic and kind of dive right in but it was not long after. I began Researching that I came across. Bronwyn Cost Grace Fabulous book made for each other fashion the Academy Awards and of course I reached out to her and I am pleased to say she is joining us here. Today Bronwyn welcomed addressed Bronwyn. It is such a pleasure to have you here today. Welcome dressed thank you cassidy. I'm a huge fan of dressed. So it's lovely to be with you. Thank you so much and I have to say that we're here today. Because you wrote this fabulous book and I'm sure you've done a lot of interviews about red carpet fashion because of it your made for each other fashion and the Academy Awards. It's such an incredible book. You have this Great Inc. A primary source materials quotes newspaper clippings. And then there use these vivid descriptions to bring these nights and events to light and I just want to read a little bit from what you wrote about for the First Academy Awards which not aired because this is pre television but may thirtieth nineteen twenty nine for instance you write. A corruption erupted on the stretch of Hollywood Boulevard. Outside the Roosevelt Hotel just before eight PM at two hundred and seventy film industry. Silent screen notable slipped from a convoy of luxury automobiles and into its cavernous event. Space the blossom room. The Academy's prominent guests included Mary. Pickford NORMA SHEARER engine starlets Marion Davies and Joan Crawford. Lean and tanned. These actress lovely looked as delicious as their sugars. Spun Party Vapor a Waxed Candy Replica a Cedric Gibbons Golden Academy Award Trophy. So it's really these details that transport the reader back in time to that moment. So thank you. You must have had a wonderful time researching and writing. This book will thank you. I actually did not have a wonderful because I understand that because you know it's really it's really kind of you to notice the intricacy that actually went in to the writing of this book. The book took me three years and every single day of that was almost every single. Damn it was really one solid year of writing to the homestretch but for about two years. I scoured honestly. The world for information about what women wore the Oscars and my book really is about women and what they went through to get dressed and the great thing is that I did discover you. Know the bulk of that material in Los Angeles at the Margaret Herrick Library which is an academy library and a lot of it had never really been looked at and I'm also went to visit the great designers I went to the Dior Archive and John. Galliano actually called the archive and said you know. Help Bronwyn with what she what. She needs whatever she needs. Giorgio Armani also took it really seriously and help me. His team really helped me. I was very very fortunate. There's a great trust. One of my favorite dresses in the book is what we shall. Yo War when she was nominated for Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and that dress was created from millions of Swarovski Crystal in Hong Kong by a very gifted designer named Barney. Chang and I what I actually noticed in the process of researching this book and why it took so long was that I kind of discovered a paper trail of identifying dresses and actually looking at the designer a designer attached to address in a caption say and looking at that dress in thinking that does not look like the work of say Howard greer who was one of the early costume designers and not all of the names turned up in in indexes for example addresses. So I really had to look hard and not believe what I saw imprint and that is something that I really noticed with fashion. History is that there will be a sort of myth associated with something. Say A design. Then it's not always the case and you really need to read between the lines and and go back to the primary source material and then to contextualized that all you know and put it in right into this story. This really captivating story. Yeah it's not an easy feat but you did it beautifully. Thank you but oh the one thing I will say about. That is that the book does also revolve around a celebration every year. So that really anchored the book the actual ceremony. Where you know. That was Super Fun. I watched every Oscar ceremony. That had been telecast. That was the first thing that I did so every Oscar ceremony that had been televised. Say I think it was like Nineteen Fifty. Four certainly the mid fifties onwards and really got to work with that material. Which was the fun stuff? Actually

I really take parenting. Pretty Seriously uh-huh and I'm fun in terms of like I like to use humor and we joke around but I have very clear rules that she has has to follow and I make her stick to them but I think people sometimes mix up my show character who actually is a very apparent for being like I drink in the day and leg. I'm a crazy mom I think I'm a stricter sound super lame But I think I'm a little stricter of apparent than people would imagine. Okay do you think there's a specific.

You thought you missed a payment. That was like such a huge failure like have to lose your house which now I think is not a huge failure. It happens a lot and like but at the time I was just like so afraid and because I buy a house that was like just at the top of of like my budget you. That's what you do get what you say. You're not the top topped this and then you're like so that was scary and then it needed so much work. Yeah I was like Oh never bought the house but like I can barely you know need so much work but then there was also a time. When I'm on only child? I went home. visit my parents once for a weekend and I was single and I'd been single for awhile and they were like.

Why won't NFL teams hire minority coaches?
"Three head. Coaching spots have been filled this week. But none of those. Three coaches were minorities while the Rooney rule has been followed. Some are beginning to believe that minority forty candidates are not being taken seriously for the open jobs and anonymous African American. NFL Assistant Coach said that the League has quote finally shown. It's not the place as for black men to advance. It's ridiculous it's disgusting. We can sell tickets and make plays but we can't lead Shannon. Why isn't the Rooney rule role working? Well I think until skip this diversity thing yeah. Diversity is a great great to talk about but until you get someone the leadership position that says you know what. I don't just want to talk about it. I want to be about it so until you get older ships that actually wants to put some substance to this and this is what that you're GonNa get now if the general manager there's one general manager that's what minority and that's CR- Chris greer in Miami. There's zero owners that are it shouldn't say minorities. I guess because shot con radically a minority. But when you get the gist of what I what. I'm trying to say until leadership gets more diverse. You're I'm not gonNA have a more diverse hiring background skills. This was puzzling to be. Is that Eric. Enemy has the exact Zac job that Matt Nagy had negative and call plays any recall. Please man they can get the job. Doug Peterson sedinko plays true. Recall to play around Rivera's on but Ron Rivera was not the defensive coordinator in Philly. He he became a D. coordinator what's he got to the D. Coordinator in Chicago. You are you in San Diego. Yeah but he got his getting these enter coaching tree. Eric B enemy has the exact same job. That Matt Nagy Doug Peterson has and he's not getting opportunity is spirit but this. I don't really think that they go into it. Unless you incentivize this. Okay if you how minorities kill we maybe you have an extra three to five five dollars and cap space. That's the only thing that resonates with these owners because I get it skipped if I spent three billion. Let's just say I spent three billion dollars for a restaurant run. You Go tell me what the hell I need to cook. Cook whatever I WanNa Cook it there. And that's how they look at it. Jerry Jones spent money for this. This this mind you oh tell me why should get killed but but this notion that Oh and they brought Muhiba Marvin Marvin Lewis. He brought him in to to do that. Situation wasted the same with the giants the giants they had irebi enemy. They what Joe Judge Chris Rashard Rashard. Excuse me Chris Restoring. Yeah so now. Now we're down to one. Vacant Cleveland Reunion. I'm talking about how good already know. Angle get no frills JAYCO network skill. He already interviewed there. So you would now now the take my name off the leader and solid rubber solid. Take my name off the list. Because he's GonNa get Mad Max two and a half years if you're lucky that seems to instead that's all Jimmy can stomach now if you look at it they keep these. You look at Mike Patton. You look at all the guys they've had and these guys have had I think. Hugh Jackson stayed the longest at two and a half years. But everybody's been two years the list huge only two and a half two and a half long but you get you get these other guys you get pretty kitchens and you look at patent and you look at a I forget. Just give all these one year jazz. WE ACHE AAC CLEVELAND. That in Cleveland of the North this skill ruining rules a joke. I get it. You know minorities Cadillac. An affirmative action thanksgiving. Yeah but in -firmative action. I guess it's federal dollars. You'RE NOT GONNA get the money if you don't do this. The NFL is a is a private entity. So what can you do. What Ki- what can you give? Nfl Do not the so. I have been tracking this for a long time because one of my best friends is John. Wooten who is now the retired leader of the Fritz Pollard. Alliance and he was the driving force behind instituting the Rooney rule as I hiring practice in the national shirow all league and John's point from the start was I just need interviews because if a young assistant coach gets interviewed a couple of times times it gets reported in his name gets out there and if another owner sees that name enough over maybe a couple of years hiring cycles else maybe an owner says chee that guy. He's getting a lot of interviews. Maybe I should bring in. Maybe I should be more open minded to him. But if you're GONNA curse because if I get a a lot of interviews and I'm not getting hired was wrong why here the me getting hired cave liability with that. But John's point in the end was I'd rather have interviews than not have interests. Okay okay so let's go back to the stat that I use last week. The Institute of Diversity and Ethics In sports twenty nine thousand nine racial and gender report card for the National Football Bali. The League got actually an a plus for hiring of color. Assistant coaches right a sit a plot. Oh that's progress right. It got a deep loss for hiring head coach of Color White eight-plus assistance d-plus head head coaches. There's a big disconnect there and it shows you. That owners are fine. Oh hire two or three black assistant fine with that but nope nope. I don't want to head coach to be black. Right gives quite to the restaurant you can cook. You'll be in the bank but Michelle not the bridge. I roll up now okay so when I texted back and forth last we can use this last week of John Wooten just beside himself now. He is devastated by this this development his point was that only one. GM Chris Grin Miami. Point out is use. John's word heartbreaking because it could start with the GM right a black GM of or of color could be more open minded to say to the owner. Hey listen this guy is really bring him in. Let me let me introduce him to you right. The conduit to the owner can be stronger. Iran have I don't know six or eight black. GM right right. We've had them around the league four or but all of a sudden there's a dearth to rape Barma with Barma within Cleveland. He'd Gone Rick Smith who I know very well be in Denver. He interviewed for The Washington. Ashington John Daniel Snyder said head coach could be a head coach. Basically general manager after the Washington like who are the head coaching after the draft. The General Mattis. Okay so sometimes there is group think or shink sheep among the owners because in the end they do want to win right. And if they're looking around the League league and that black head coaches really successful they say well I want one of those. I want to go that direction right well. There was one black head coach who started to have success late in the year ear and he happened to be allied with Chris. Clear in Miami and Brian Floors off the Patriots. Well they started out all time badge for about what seven seven games fifty. Nine seven opening renders and then they basically it felt like they turned the whole roster iside down which they needed to do and then all of a sudden the last nine games they go five and four they upset the eagles and then they went to foxborough and just basically ended the season. I thought for the new New England Patriots playoff teams right. Okay so all the sudden Brian floor floor with the help of Chris greer. They're having big success. It looks like it's headed in the right drug us us but it wasn't enough of a splash to create momentum through the hiring process and right because John Wooden again texted me back with so many names he said we have so many in the pipeline. Who already started with Eric? B Enemy and Chris Rock. I think Chris Shaw Bad Year on defense but when I watch him interviewed when I watch his body language. It's a stunt man he's he's got. CEO Written all over him. He looks like a commanding officer to me. There's not enough black head coaches skip. Because because you look you look at Mike McCarthy guest job he hires the guy that gave him his opportunity coordinator fifteen years ago so you see the circle. We'll skip once you become a head coach. What do you do you go to the combine? You go to say elbow you got your drake. He goes to the coaches meeting and Yada Yada Yada and to connect with the boom boom boom right right. So if I'm not in that Lou. How do I get into loops? Because a rid of staff they said eighty percent of the jobs are never posted so in other worth people get hired somebody a friend or family member is not what you know who you know There in live the roof. It does house so to finish John. Bruton's list of pipeline candidates being AMEE. Chris Rashard Robert Sala. He threw Jim Caldwell on his list. Is Jim Colwell was highly successful zestful. Jim called wheel lost his jaw. Going nine and seven in two years Matt Patricia has nine total win and he's still got a job now he goldwell still doesn't have another job he in four years. He went to the playoffs twice in the last year he went nine and seven and they said well you know we need to move in a different direction. uh-huh and the guy that's replaced has yet to win nine total games in two years. Do you still own a still on the clock. Okay Steve wilks got one shot in time. I'm one year in Arizona and he was gone. He's now the defensive coordinator in Cleveland which probably didn't help his cause this year that much but I don't hear his name no in Cleveland right right on the list. And then there's Terrel Austin who's young stripes potential star coach and John Wootton into his list with Marvin Lewis who he thinks deserves a second shy right. Okay so Jerry. Jones did observe in qualified for the Rooney rule by bringing in. I Marvin Lewis. I think Jerry was shrewd operating waiting there. Because he didn't pick a young like like Chris Rashard type interview him because of Jerry had interviewed a young potential upcoming head. Black coach right. There's more pressure on Jerry. What was wrong with right? What's the problem exactly? He went to Marvin Lewis because he thinks Marvin Lewis is kind of old news right right. He got his longtime time shot in Cincinnati. Listen I still think Marvin did a good job job seriously. Yes okay he went. Oh and seven in the playoffs but still it was Andy Dalton Alton you re you with covering the NFL and you remember what Cincinnati before. Marlene got there was John. Carter number one overall. You Got David Cleland with the fourth. The fourth picket. You got big day to day and Wilkerson purse around the second pick in the draft year after year after a year people. Forget what I know. Marvin didn't win a playoff game. But they weren't even getting close to the playoffs for Marvin got there. No so I was disappointed in Jerry because you know my heart Hartz. I'd love to see Jerry Jones higher black head coach and I think I probably won't live long enough or Jerry will live long enough to know.

the airport so I hadn't slept kind of sitting in silence eating these aac muffins this guy came up to us and he goes hey guys sorry to interrupt just want to say thanks for the laughs and he walked away P and I just kept eating for a few seconds and then forget which one of us said it but we thought wouldn't it be funny if the guy he didn't recognize us as actors and he just had been on the phone with his like former FRAC I bite in he was like dude you'll never believe what I'm looking at this like Scrawny tasty nerd and this like little person or shoving acreage muffins their mouths in silence but see I think guy who just found that funny wouldn't played enough to come up and say something to you that's true unless you're not telling the whole story and you were like baby birding egg mcmuffins into pizza I forgot to mention Oh yeah pieces of egg mcmuffin in which I could be a dream life good injury ship you're listening to life is short no pun intended on your host justin long

think people do it I don't think I know he wouldn't do it no you would do it ah I love Egg mcmuffins I love Pete You weren't there that morning but it was really funny but I think it was pete who said and peace got a really good sense of humor about that's about being a little yeah yeah the fact that he referenced it but I think someone like Pete it makes sense that he would be able to laugh at himself I I don't think you could be a little person and get to where he's gotten without having the ability to like kinda laugh at himself but reasonably talking about actor in college is I mean now oh he's a household name and everyone recognized him game of thrones but even then because he was a little person in Hollywood and there aren't many of them I'm sure he's always been since he started acting he's been someone that it's very clear how you know him you know you don't say well what were you in like right where have I seen you before it's a defining factor it's like very much but our guest today is someone who has been working for twenty years he's in countless movies and TV shows and everyone knows her but she's the kind of person that it's it's difficult to pinpoint how they know she's the ultimate like where do I know you from like I know you and I get versions of that I've we've talked on the show other actors who get versions of uh I think she is like the quintessential where do I know you from actress our guest today is Judy greer and part of what makes her so specialists that is such a talented actress that she she blends into these different worlds so well that she kind of I don't think she's defined she can't be defined anyone thing and she's in so many things to the point where she wrote a book called I don't know what you know me from because she says she's constantly getting that you know and I think you get a version of that to I got it yesterday at the pet store somebody the guy was like and I now doing at the pet store well I was buying Goldfish for my new indoor Garland and I realized that I had made a mistake the last time I went there and got the fantail Goldfish the fancy like two ninety nine apiece Goldfish and this time

Peter would would peterman that appeals ish told fish being eaten by snapping turtle it's natural now when you force enforce the Goldfish into this dangerous environment yeah I don't know I I don't know if Peter would care well if like if you're a member of Peter the please right in and let us know if that is a thing that I shouldn't be talking about or doing I'll continue to do it but I just want to talk about it if it's frowned upon so the Guy Reckon anyway the Guy it so back to my story about getting recognized I realized that when you guys were talking about it I think you and Judy greer are actually yeah sorry so what it sounds bragging it just sounds like inherently due to be like well I've done a lot of things and I don't know what you saw but that's the truth is I don't know what people saw so it's also so I say like well my name's justine my last name's long and again this out of context sounds really do she if I'm like just google it's the Google hands I know that does

there's that moment of like Oh yeah I can see them from like a couple of feet away going and then they turn the camera he and the rebating me yeah you get this little like glitter in your IRA this
