"Evening I know you guys enjoy enjoyed. Casey's work on this film was Incredible I've seen twice. I saw at the premiere and I said I gotta take my kids to see this movie because Just to to see Harry come alive. And this way was important. And an so congratulations relations on on a great film. And I guess we're just going to talk and hang and shoot the about Harrington and process and everything else so I always. I'm always curious about origin story. So where'd way did this come from in terms of You telling the story What was what was there? I guess I just let it come from you just to get what the what the beginning of this was for you for me. In some ways it was a different different process than anything I've been involved with before and that I got invited onto it. But they were very determined to to producers that were very determined to make the movie two women producers. Sousse Debra Martin Chase and Danielle top number and on the script that they they they knew they wanted to somebody to come in and and Some wrangling and bring vision at oak because the script had been written decades before. So that's kind of interesting. Is that that Gregory Allen Howard written script in the nineties indies and his vision was Harriet Tubman as a superhero but it was really before three major biographies on Harriet. had been written so he didn't have access And I also think in the nineties. It wasn't as important as is now to get stuff right so So it was a little general in it was. It was not on her story as much as I needed to be. Said they brought me on and I the first thing I did was research and I did. I did seven months research. I read everything and everything. Every biography in every mm-hmm academic paper and everything on the underground railroad and really tried to find what was her story. And I didn't know if if these things were going to Go together well. But as it turns out the action adventure story was inherent to her story and said the detail and texture sure and the the woman who could and And what was specific that I found exciting that I didn't know about here That that wasn't you know necessarily in his script and that wasn't what children are taught or Young adults are taught about Harriet. Those are things that I found really interesting. Yeah There was the aid when I went to the screening of it. You had mentioned that notion Geno of Herod Tubman as a as a superhero and sort of the the idea of how that shaped the story so just talk a a little bit about that concept and how if any that drove the storytelling because obviously you think of a Superhero Film Elm where you pick up that John Rather certain things that you sort of you know immediately associate that you might not think when you're thinking of a Harriet Tubman but once you said it I said that certainly something about that makes. The beauty of it was when I went into the research didn't drive the story on it was inherent perent in the story. You know what I mean. This is an action adventure story. I mean it just is jeopardy their high stakes it's life and death. You know what I mean so so. The interesting thing game for me was that he didn't have to be imposed artificial. It was Kinda there in the story so really what I was trying to bring. was you know this woman. And that's what I was trying to bring you as if you had lunch with her. Like how close can you get to the woman who is doing these incredible things And and within a form. That's interesting engaging. Did you have any sense of it. Because you know there have been Several stories that have been written and told in this era in about slavery or about You know whether it's whatever a specific historical figure or a fictionalized version. This is you know there's been some films and television that sort of dealt with this. So how much in in your mind were you thinking about. What's preceded this? And how much either through that notion or others were you thinking about Outdo sort of Tell L. disarray defined this in a different way. Well when I knew owns that we'd had very good Representations of physical violence silence against enslaved people that has been done very well and so I was not trying to necessarily give you that again because I I thought that in a weird way I it can be dehumanizing in in a weird way it can be you know. I didn't want to give you slavery. Wanted to give you what I found Incredibly heartbreaking and that was the choices that people had to make every day and the separation seperation that people had to deal with every day in terms of their families so so a lot has been written in and filmed about the damage. For instance instance to men's bodies or two black bodies but I feel like what what did it do to your psyche to watch your sister's being you know I know I love my family family. We all love our families. So that's the thing once. I realized that this was a family story. You know I thought that was really powerful. Really accessible like we can all relate to that and and what does it do to you when you have to leave your way freight after. She had a baby too. Because you're going to be soldier or you or you know her real. The real story for sister Rachel who wouldn't leave her children and all the reasons why people didn't run. I mean I think there's kind of this some Kinda Kinda stupid conjecture out there about you know people would run you know if you know. They chose slavery or whatever. People had many many reasons as a matter of fact one of the reasons that on the slave masters were so eager to have the enslaved people procreate was because that was way of controlling them because people you now you can run with your kids you couldn't you know so what. What are those choices? Feel like I really wanted to investigate a different type of violence. You know on then I'd seen before. Yeah Adenauer. It's this was that it's been. It's the four hundred year anniversary since the first slaves arrived and there was incredible piece piece that the The New York Times did And in these sort of start thinking about the ideas of slavery very differently and what the effects were and what. The sort of reality wasn't what I was struck by watching the film was how you were able to sort of deal with the different different layers of slavery that were different than what we were sort of used the scene when the scene between her and her husband when when she comes back for him and then she finds out that he's remarried and just the complications that went into just living life because one of with them was free and one of them was not and so there were so many different layers to that. I thought that those relationships were released strong particularly between Harriet and and forgetting the character played by Janelle Monet because that also brought sort of a different layer ear of of understanding between how even black people and black you know related to each other so I guess talk a little bit about some of those yeah new onset particularly when you know with that relationship. Yeah that's what I was trying to speak to US trying to speak to all of the texture of African American life and life if in fact of the period so you would get a complete kind of different view of it. Because there's something like I say look I appreciate all I. I appreciate all those movies that have gone before. But there's something a little bit I find it slightly dehumanizing like slaves leaves Anfield picking cotton as if that was slavery because slavery is a very complex economy that involved many many different aspects and this particular group of enslaved the people in the Chesapeake region that were living next to an intermarrying free people. I found that fascinating painful. What are the choices you have to make? How much do you have to love? A woman to marry an enslaved woman as a free man so people historian sometimes diminish John John and his love for Harry but he must've loved her at least at one point in order to marry somebody who knowing that their children would be enslaved. You know what I mean so the sacrifices that people made made and the and what they did for love and I've got to say we shot in Virginia in a farm where they'd once been numerous enslaved people and you can you feel it. It was it was quite there was no freeway noise and you just hear insects and like nature and it was like like church in really weird way because it was not just filled with pain. It felt you could feel the lives. The people these are lives people lived and loved and had children who they might have had hope for so I wanted not really. I wanted to bring their humanity. And in the story of enslaved people there's love and you know and family family and so the Stories full of this love of family and I thought okay so everybody can relate to this. This is like our family. This is what wouldn't you do for your family and I found that very inspiring so it's a painful Painful story But inspiring burns definitely so talk to me about a casting and The incredible Cynthia Ariba what. What was that process did you was this? was she someone that was on your mind on your radar or somebody that was on the producers. Mind and I was a little skeptical when I went in for my first meeting. They kind of tricked into taking meeting. And pretend it was a general meeting and then I got into meeting in the middle of the meeting. Danielle atop and lumber. who was like you know? Debra Martin Chase Mayor. We're going to hear stories like Oh right right. I did hear something like that. You know you've got you've got this somebody you're talking walk into and I was kind of like you know I hadn't attitude about it. She she she put up this newly this. This newly elite this photograph that newly emerged of Harriet Tubman which we use at the end right and then she slept Cynthia picture next to us now. Now that you know you're serious. That was my first time their series. What was your initial hesitation about it as you know your director leg directors? We don't want talented attached. Don't come to me before you talk. Macoutes valley she been talking to her and she was kind of committed to the Grad. So that's something. That is a little bit skeptical. I would like did you do. I was at myself. Please thank you. You know However they were onto something you know they were on to something and and then? When I met Cynthia a great thing happened which was I said? Okay let me just figure out your script. Let me figure out your script. And what I want to say. Would I would wanNA WANNA save. I was directing the movie and so I- dove into the research and Cindy was doing back to back movies. I didn't meet her until I was into the research and by the time I was injured Richard Research. I had a picture period like I could touch her hands like a very vivid picture for you then and Cynthia walked into the Russian tea room as a tiny muscular. You know extreme sports marathoner singer. You know she doesn't I'll shoot this anti and there's in talking to her there's something in her spirit it that reminded me of period. You know she she just as fierce and powerful in opinionated and strong forceful in You know like a force of nature and so I know when an the casting was initially announced there there were. Some rumblings is about Cynthia being British and around some.

"And what they're talking about and I see it in different places to is that Chick-fil-a is saying you know what we're no longer going going to spend money or donate money to companies that are against LGBT Specifically we will no longer support companies. That are into ex gay therapy which quite frankly I believe is evil without an exaggeration. But I see different articles saying chick fil non on blogs not people writing stupid shit on twitter. Real newspapers saying they shouldn't caved listened to cancel culture and CHICK-FIL-A. They shouldn't have caved. And I'm thinking this is. This is evil. This is homophobia. This is horrendous. And you'd think it's really just we're in a cancel culture and nobody can have an opinion first of all a do they mean it. And how do we track that now. The CHICK-FIL-A has capitulated to the bullying of Rainbow Activists. I'll is this article either. The poster daily knows it will learn that cowardice is a lose lose proposition. They won't support escape therapy anymore. Cowards by the way CHICK-FIL-A has said Multiple Times that they haven't been doing anything they still donate it so I don't know what's different now but okay. I guess you have to believe the chicken. Chains profits soared in the seven years since it was targeted over. Its bosses comments opposing same sex marriage it sales rose twelve percent. That's the thing you you don't get cancelled for being anti LGBT or anti immigrant anti black lack anti you. Don't get canceled those plenty of followers in this country and others that will happily support you by the way we have a chick-fil-a here in New York Org at least one. I know there's a couple but there's just one that I pass. A lot is so packed. It's a line out the door and there's someone taking orders while you're you're in line. The other day I saw two people taking your order while like White Lake later in the line you know I mean not only do not get canceled. Somebody even say you can become the president like that's that was. I would say the woman on the train was yelling the other day. It's like people are so outwardly racist homophobic like hourly all the time that it's shocking that your life because people are they just did that sound so cheesy but people feel more emboldened and I think a hack term but you notice that I notice it so much more now especially especially go to this other than this coming action. People just openly are doing it where you're like you're doing that out of like prejudice and hatred for specific group. You know what I mean. It's wild to just to just see like so much number when this. Excuse me when this was big when the chick-fil-a thing was big at the peak of this Hey you're being anti anti gay. Anti transient legit homophobic in general anti bt and I remember entire churches would buy hi chick-fil-a in order to take a picture with their entire congregation and go where on Chick-fil-a say these were churches. Because God that's actually telling only you to be this homophobic and so yeah you got so you got extra people buying your shit like yes. God said these people don't exist and should fight against the devil in them if they feel that way. So they're doing the right thing. is telling you that that's the right thing then you have to support that. A sales rose twelve percent during that outcry so it was good for them. Not because chicken. Lovers are homophobic. Says this article because no one likes a bully telling you what to believe everyone what exactly. They don't want to be told what to believe. That gay people are the people. Don't tell me what to think I'M GONNA eat. You GotTa Talk to these people like babies. I it's the people that voted for trump. Because they don't want to be told that could be deplorable horrible. Yeah I'll show you fucking ironic people that are going to church every Sunday or like. No one's GonNa tell me what to believe I think for myself I've I've I think a free thinker and I'll see you Sunday at nine can wild and also with not you free thinker and that SORTA got to go out. Okay so I think like you. I guess we're all Nazis. No I have no. I hate gay people you like them. I don't come into your house and go. Hey start hating gay people. That's my thing. Yeah you do you and if we want want to celebrate it through chicken then that's what we'll don't shop here. What's the big deal? Take this to anything else. It's establishment. Could they not sir black people. It's their business. If you don't realize that the answer is what right away. Then you're wrong. Oh you're wrong all around. This isn't this is not okay. It's not a decision. Well I gotta be honest. I don't really understand why two men would. I want to be together so now and I go okay. I don't I can't impose everybody my will. That's insane now. The company has gone a Woke up a lot of chicken problems in the news lately. This is a big deal. Yeah it all started happening when Epstein was arrested in case you guys were watching the news cycles there like quick quick chicken sandwiches chickens again now. The company has gone woke by announcing won't be quote financially financially supporting anti Lgbtq organizations which apparently means the salvation army and other Christian Shen outfits with a traditional view of marriage. Okay by the way you want to call it traditional view of marriage. Because you don't want to call it homophobia defined but also understand the traditional view of marriage. Is that you own me okay. That's why took your last name. You own me your last name on me just like you put your last name on your home and your last name on your on your land so you WanNa go traditional dinners on the table. And here's your slippers fuck off. How about Wendy's view on the the traditional view of racism? Come on you. It's like actually let you know if we're GONNA do marriage. I think we should go either. No marriage or all all the way back to the old and times like that. I think everybody just own somebody that just makes it easier much easier instead of and then you say well where everyone's swiping wiping and we have all these options. This is the old and times. You WanNa get married great. You've got a brand. You're fucking hide with my initial first woman. You dance with. That's your wife right and then you're done. It is interesting that people who are like I remember the good old days. What Day was that? Did you mark it in red on your calendar. Can I know that date wait. What date with workout so well for everybody? How many years ago? There's the new. Harriet Tubman movie. It's called here it. Did you hear that Julia Roberts was supposed to and Gregory Allen Howard is the screenwriter. And he's he's trying to make this movie for at least twenty five years he says and at the time when he announced it a studio studio. Exact said Julia Roberts could play Harriet Tubman right. This is back in nineteen ninety four. I was told how one studio radio headset in. A meeting. Quote descriptors fantastic. Let's get Julia Roberts to play. Harriet Tubman when someone pointed out. Roberts couldn't be Harriet. The executive responded quote quote. It was so long ago known is going to know the difference but what story are you telling. Harriet the spy. Maybe he's on a different page. They're like why. Why do you think she? You can't do it to smiley right. Our teeth or to beg for Twenty Five Years Howard said he was unable to make. She wasn't really a hooker in that other movie. He's playing a role key. Twelve years a slave became a hit and then Black Panther became ahead and so now they figure they can tell this story. 'cause to black movies were hits. You know it's not like Black Panther was a slave movie. Why does it always have to be that kind of movie too? You know. It's always like Oh this is a hit here we are. We're slaves. That's the story it's wild because and this is just I've been having this conversation with some friends of mine in the past few months getting indepth and like real because I think part of the problem is that like white people and again like there. I think there's guilt and I think there should there should be because because and not that like you know like own slaves but there's just to recognize understand like things have been really fucked up from the beginning of the spy. The the country started so like to deny that black people started at a grave disadvantage. You're just you're full of Shit and and so it's like no wonder people are like upset and like you have to change things that you have to be aware of. What's happening that even now? It's like Black Mike. My black friends. I get followed in. CVS and then people will be like it's like no that's like to say well they could follow anyone. It's like no no no and if I see someone getting called out in public it's like I can't help like I feel like that's because you're being racist and because of your being prejudice and being shitty towards them but that's like you said the movies there's never it's never just like a homeowner like they're starting to know integrate integrate where it doesn't have to be like you guys. There are three black leads in this movie. So the black movie where being well can. It's a black movie and obviously also Tyler Perry's in it you know what I mean it can't even TV commercials. Like I watched like Like to pay attention to TV commercials you'll notice and this is what's fucked up if there's a TV commercial for like just a random like Capital one or whatever they could America and if the majority of the actors in the commercial. If there's not one white blonde haired blue eyed actor it stands out. They'll be like Oh. Wow and that's you're like wait a minute. It's not a special commercial. That's what the population fucking. That's what they're can be commercials with no white eight people. It's fine they're going to be movies with no way people and as you have to be like a spectacle it's the same with a female heads up it's a bunch of broads I think. Just start the fucking show. Just do it to our on their period. We're not gonNA take which I was just having this conversation a couple of days ago and happened when my friend and I went to borrow bucks. He's African American and they almost fucking let I said and I was pissed. He on three P.. Sue But he had a code on. Sorry I'm like real pissed off about at this and I wanted to be like I'm a fucking hooker and I had leftover steak dinner in my purse. We walk up to this place. And it's packed hacked code on and he had he was dressed. I said I was and the guy opened the door and he looked at me and he said Hi and he recognized me they looked at my friend and he goes looking down and he goes. Oh sorry we have a dress code. You need a jacket and he started to close the door on him and my friend and I pushed the door and I'm like he's wearing a suit but he had his coat on he took off in. The guy was like okay. You you guys can come in and I was like I was all. He's like he goes I. I'm I'm John Josh. I love you Josh probably listening. I'm sorry so sorry but I'm five is pissed me off. And how do you feel being in this space. Then I made a big mistake but so I mean it was like an again. I don't know if it's me being sensitive incident of me being over protective and then I don't know as a white person like my overstepping my bounds mice. Supposed to not say anything but I just it was just really agitated and then once we went inside right and he was like a Mike. Did you notice that and I felt very weird. 'cause he's like yeah I'm user. I'm from the South and it's not that you know. And he's still shops that he buys them. Oh I paid okay. I like seeing tomorrow books and we walked in.

Do I want him to say something. You know what I mean like does that. I don't know if I always want him to say something on my behalf because then it's again somebody else talking for for me in protecting me and it's like you know what I mean but at the same time if key said Hey.

Here's the backstory in an interview this month with focus features screen writer Gregory Allen Howard who wrote the recent movie Harriet About Harriet. Tubman said back in one thousand nine hundred ninety four when he started developing the project. That's how long it takes to develop a project around here. He heard from a studio executive that Julia. Roberts Roberts should play Harriet. 'cause I guess Julia Roberts was really in her heyday then and it was the ninety s and the ninety S. Were like a much less breath racially conscious time. That is insane all right. y'All got zero on that tied at zero zero. We're okay quote number you too.

don't really understand what these protesters they have when a foreign dignitary they don't agree with their politics comes of the UK primarily in this case trump i just don't get what the purpose of the razor what did they actually do what did they change how did it affect or is it just a way for the people without dare to essentially kind of express their frustration in a way that isn't placards

mississippi looks really really lineup lineup of checking out if you're inclined to really solid core assuming for the most of it again i don't know what it does in terms of actually moving the needle but maybe this is part of a series of things that can lead to some kind of change who knows but check out a resident advisor is listed in now is quote dance music against trump embarrassed on december presented by off free some cistern nixon list here go to my notes what do i have to tell you a odu others this funny story about julia roberts potentially being there's a story that somebody has leaked invaded did write a book or something that supposedly dribbles day some film producer executive out there was pitched julia roberts says harriet tubman for the biopic that's come out recently which is funny because i'm looking at this picture here from the guardian pitcher here of julia roberts and yet you're actually playing playing and it's up in the movie whose name is cynthia irujo irreversible right if the story you know that is harriet tubman movie was mighty mighty controversy because americans felt as if an american black person should have played the role of harriet tubman because day daiwa reasoning that the black experience in america is completely different black experience in europe so there was a division between the work people out there saying that all we want some yes from our shores to play because they get it much more visually somebody from the UK so this story leaking is interesting because it puts in front of us the two options one white one black the white option julia roberts of courses ridiculous option for the role but in the black option even for the people that work isn't enough because he's british is that what you want the pick your poison in the hallway but also goes to show just how important it is for just how as nathen as annoying as it can be because i've heard some people especially online i've heard a couple of the permanent kind of game agendas i cut sake already start tweeting out there oh the mandatory doesn't contain in many female speaking rothe right and a lot of people like that who kind of had that weird way of looking at things where everything is about race everything's about gender everything is about power the competition doesn't come into the equation the idea of just enjoying the movie of this is coming to the equation and it just is kind of race race to make sure who can get the most who can make that movie look like a poster of united colors of benetton quicker right which isn't the best way to go about presenting creative were you wanna make sure the creative work is good regardless the measure is sending right but sometimes i have sympathy for that point of view because if you leave the production some companies and the film producers to have their way they will just recycle the same five to ten actresses and actors in the rose regardless of what the row is they'll just keep rotating they wouldn't care right they wouldn't care that you know jay juninho doesn't look like an egyptian and it cost him as the ferret an ex ferrovie they wouldn't give a crap because they just know that jay general had a particular poll with movies an okinawa wants to take a chance on a cost some kid from either you do who no one knows about because they wanna make sure that they confident not and it gets on a movie to investing in so this whole championing diversity in the creative creative field on your entertainment industry is annoying but i kind of understand it because if if we if we leave them unchecked if people don't kick up a fuss on social this is what you'd get you potentially get a movie like harriet tubman bio pic with fucking julia roberts play now i know they would have probably done it will probably harriet tubman in black face on pressure that will happen yeah i'm preaching it won't be that stupid i'm maybe done a modern interpretation of harriet tubman story where they may be had julia roberts in in a country that wasn't that wasn't her native country maybe it was costing somewhere like far east asia i don't know it would have been a something modern twist i am pretty sure they would have done the CGI at her face black i don't know but regardless it's amazing story that really kind of really makes you wonder just what these producers or production people were actually get paid to do like this is the opinion that you have sitting around the table brainstorming ideas you like look you play tubman g roberts is nuts the article from the guardian says the following no one of the difference that a studio wanted g-o-v supply harriet tubman yeah the producer of a new bio pic celebrated abolitionist harriet tubman has said that was originally tipped to stop in an official publicity QNA to promote harrier which is released this month the firm screenwriter producer gregory gregory allen howard said that when film was in his planning stages twenty five years earlier the climate in hollywood is very different oh twenty five years okay cool that's that's okay fair enough men they were back then and julia roberts was probably red hot so what happens in this regard is that if jehovah's at red hot issues the one there's going to place him in as many movies they can just gonna smash and rinse you out as soon as possible so that you can get as much return on on their kind of notoriety as they can so that's okay plano in that regard let's continue doc continues and says i was told how wants to head wants to sit in a meeting so go get my reading is so bad i was told how wants to get headset a meeting descriptive on tastic let's get to play harriet tubman at an explained when someone pointed out jira was couldn't be higher tubman executive responded it was so long ago loans who's going to know the difference twenty five years ago that is an incredibly dumb ignorant statement to make like excuse excuse me what according to reports are love pleased named executive is please and you know what i've always said it right i think even to my friends friends they decide that people get a little bit intimidated with jobs they sometimes look at people have high-flying jobs or you know are a all kind of have responsibility in ownership in the date kind of die for an alabama goes person mazing must be so cool it might be so inch so small awesome intelligent not not it's not actually the case most of the time people have those jobs especially high flying dougherty pay because it just been alive longer than you rather be older they have more experience so this is the kind of consequence of the time we spent in the company that year and year if you're smart enough and you hit a target you could potentially get a raise right so that could eventually lead you to kind of climbing up the corporate ladder but also this understanding that sometimes if you just got.
"gregory allen howard" Discussed on The Daily Zeitgeist
"By Dow and we're back and there is a new movie called. Harriet coming out Out already so that is out south and it's a script that has been shopped around Hollywood since one thousand nine hundred four or even before forever yes forever because God I mean. Look God forbid we make a film like this Yeah the the the writer of it and producer this Guy Gregory Allen Howard he said in this recent like interview or in an entertainment weekly. This thing came out where he brought up this moment When when he first started working on it in ninety four that a studio executive in a meeting suggested that the actress to portray the legendary Jin? Dairy slave turned abolitionist. One behind the underground railroad should be none other than Red headed icon Julia. Roberts yes go off in and when it happened he said quote. I was told how one studio headset in meeting. descript is fantastic. Let's get Julia. Roberts covers to play. Harriet Tubman when someone pointed out that Roberts couldn't be Harriet executive responded. It was so long ago. No one's going to know the difference that's That's perfectly believable. Yeah and that's what. It's like thickly believable. When you know shit like that was being said you like of course? Of course. This is literally like the attitude of the media industry st of Hollywood executives completely out of touch. I mean we'll look in her and Denzel were great and Pelican brief so she knows how to act with black people basically black at at this point because property I've put out why looked. IMDB on like what the fuck was she doing in like ninety four that this dude was like it should be Julia Roberts Robert Wright on either side of that she was in Hook as Tinkerbell right so she can play all different. You know play a little little fairy. She can play You Know Vivian Ward Pretty woman or you can play all kinds of fantastical creatures right. Ah Right could you imagine what the rest part was. He's like in his this story even true. It's all made up anyway. We have have some notes about how we WanNa just reshaped any make her a white woman that saves all these black people right exactly. That is yeah. That's kind of the perfect Hollywood. Move to know really what had what the sequence was after that would that executive who said that and how like who put their foot down like what no because clearly the people like in positions powerful enough. Where we like would never do Julia? Roberts as it would just won't do it it all right but I'm curious to know what who that WHO that executive was. I'm really curious. He went on to green light. Green Book Yeah Right is you went on to grow many actresses. Ah I think listen. Let's be fair. Though in that moment. Julia was waiting for her. Breakout like she she she needed it. Yeah more than history needed accuracy. We needed Julia's career. Take off and then it was Erin Brockovich. NOPE that's true. That was Erin. Brockovich had been Latina Julia. Roberts would've played it. Oh Yeah Yeah I mean this would have been her Erin. Brockovich moment prevalent traveled. Now we denied it to her. If that's the most Hollywood feedback I've ever heard that it was so long go. People don't want out my God. I mean this just shows you like like why it's taken so long for people of color to have any kind of representation well. While we're on the subject of the film industry and how it functions flawlessly. The Department of Justice is trying to fuck with the industry and make it more possible for movie studios and just people in the entertainment industry to consolidate monopolies Yeah I mean they've been talking about like there's been mumbles about basically completely overturning. The paramount consent decrees this from the forties Ray And now it seems like this is going to be something. The Department of Justice is going to pursue so like back. When this whole consent a degree happened the studios are set up all the studios ran everything? They fucking own theaters. They own film processing companies and what they could just do is basically saying like we all these films and if you're an independent theater it's like if you want this big ticket picture you got to buy all these other bullshit films to play them like what the fuck is this like it's GonNa Squeeze out independent creators. There's your forcing people. There's no choice at this point and we're basically being like You know forced at gunpoint to like facilitate the premiers of these films. That aren't worthwhile. Yeah I mean because they were able to have power up and down the chain like they also owned the companies that developed the film they owned like every part of it they owned the actors contracts in what year that was in the fifties. I like forty nine one. It happened but so at first they I brought it up like doc right around the depression but FDR was like hold off on that. Like let's get through this shit really quick depression and then you can revisit it and then once it ended they did come back. And they're like we want to get rid of block booking which is that concept of like you on one film by all these fucking films right and the people who were involved with like getting things change range where Chaplin Orson Welles and Weirdly Walt Disney because at that time like Disney was a small independent studio. But it's like people who are then you know how connected with like pushing the art form forward Doing this also brought about the golden age of television or what people went onto the I golden golden ages of television but like it made it possible to have good. TV shows because actors were no longer controlled completely by the movie studios so they were able to star in Star on TV prior to why like I mean Marilyn Monroe obviously wonderful. Oh but like. Is this why she'd be in like twelve movies in a year's signed you to this deal and they're like work shit out right rank it as many films out of US possible. Yeah yeah so I mean this was undoubtedly a good thing for the film industry and like historians think it had to do with like you know films becoming becoming better and you know the movie industry become or like films in the sixties and seventies like so many great movies were made because of competition the studios had to compete with each other to make good movies. That theaters would then want to put in their theater. It's not just like be strong armed into putting in their theaters. Like blaxploitation comes around so now the Department of Justice wants to reverse all that which is worrying for a few reasons so their argument for why they should reverse it is because it's a new like world war. I do too late now to exchange a gay man. I think we need to refigure. We need to rethink all. This tech has made it so that our world is run by like a handful of monopoly. Yeah Yeah Tech monopolies maybe into that right Listen I think first of all Justice Department being run by William Bar. Let's remember Bray Dude. Who is I think? Been in Italy or something like also Having his own it's all over angle in hand in the whole book report. That's due very soon and most of blow up the entire impeachment investigation about Italy about everything I mean. That's the jury. Yeah I mean that's what everyone's saying he's he's trying to figure out some kind of counter to all of this and that's why I've been going around and be like somebody like force you guys to start to. Russia investigation does much wasted. Somebody didn't like everyone's like yellow Bro. And we're not going to say whatever you want to stay in what everything you're saying is wrong. Yeah yeah the Italian president was like no. We're not gonNA investigate and like Hey. They're like nick. We absolutely stand by what happened. We were not forced. But listen. BANNON's been quiet for a while Bannon is a filmmaker. Yes has a production company me. Bannon's a great filmmaker. Not just any film. I don't know if you read his script for the Shakespearean Oh and when was that year gang war. TV Show but Shakespearean Compton Gang War. I think it was a movie I did you see. Let's check it out. It's a Ryan rap musical rap musical epic Bannon always Linneman. Well yeah yeah exact- everything's just been Ghazi all that's what it was as. I'm like looking it up. It was basically A. It was Corey Alanis honest that takes place during the ninety two LA riots. Yeah Yeah Oh bannon wrote that. Yes that's what he was trying to use a failed filmmaker. Like there's a thing he's GonNa come back with this this now this move to what whatever to create more monopolies Hollywood follow. Follow me and we're all going to have to watch. I don't know this we're GONNA have to watch the ninety two riots or like a black lives matter like redick right right but via Bannon's is and somehow it's going to exonerate trump. The thing with this though too right it's like not only will it like central is a lot of the influence again into these late major studios but now like it's also forcing companies like Amazon and Netflix. To be like maybe we need to start buying. Oh yes they will start buying. Yeah I think we need to build our own theaters because if Disney has a Sharon AMC or whatever universe is sharing these other theaters than we need that to enforce their. It's my home. Pay My rent. You Pay Your fucking taxes. Yes both of you Yeah and I think that's what block booking will probably come back or could come back where it's like y'all WanNa vendors right. Then take this terrible film about two podcasters who get smoke a magical wrong and ended up the president and vice president they just take up the other adventures it vendors. I've seen half of one on a plane. Is that true. I haven't seen many of the vendors I talked about this when the last one came out. I'm like Yo oh. These films came out way too quickly ran and I I don't I didn't care enough about Captain America to watch a Captain America movie but I get it I get I get the allure. But you know I'd rather just watch trash. TV sometimes self-care yes but I mean. Basically they would use their big blockbusters to strong arm the theaters. Yeah it's already already got to be like that. I mean it's gotta be so hard for a fledgling like like where's my mom GonNa go see e Downton Abbey. You know like her local little like Palo Alto Square theater. which is where she goes? We're like to see her matinees. Where what are they going to do and would have her and whatever what of her? Yeah Yeah I think he's going to have to be forced to watch like transformers twelve twelve or whatever. Yeah Yeah or transformers twelve times in a row stay in your seats. I think that would actually kill you. Don't a Fuck I watch at twelve twenty one hundred percent yeah Somehow get red billed you think if you watch Francesca. It's been a pleasure having you.

Dave the civil war the reconstruction twenty five years ago that didn't start to like last year right I'm being sarcastic you DO heads are not known for their great insight I mean how many how many classic films have been turned down by every studio because studio head spin think they work yeah so this doesn't surprise me and yeah I just do very but that usually meant yeah usually they make no judgments they're not completely insensitive and the stupid that's just dumb yeah could you imagine if they had made a movie about Harriet Tubman with a white person in the lead well I don't think Julia would have accepted the license I sure hope not yeah but you know what maybe you found that that one actress flick I really feel like I could stretch myself as an actress I feel like I can put a black a white chick from a suburb I can do it I can do I can totally I can I feel I as a matter of fact I become she's the happening me right now you get that one dip the actress who thinks that's a good idea wow that could have been a major disaster and I've heard nothing but good diffusing this real men singer looking forward to it I have a friend who said it wasn't really she said I wasn't in the mood to see that type of film but the other film they were going to see was sold out so her friend said let's go see this and she said it was just so incredibly inspiring that was the word she used she said I don't think I don't see how you can see the the story of Harriet Tubman and not be inspired to do amazing things with your own life because her story is one of the there was absolutely no advantage to what she did other than she believe that god was telling her to save slaves that was it there is no upside for her at all it was a an entirely selfless operation the Underground Railroad in everything she did and you just we don't have a lot of those people it feels like I mean I'm sure there are people like that but we don't focus attention on the people like that we focus attention on scumbags the reality shows you do everything bad so she said it was just an incredible the week we do it I was so inspiring move we do have some people like that but they're usually misguided like the sixteen year old Dutch girl Greta hurts she thinks that she's like another Harry a tough I don't mean to be condescending but soon good little Greta film Berg is just it's entirely depressing and you know what I had a revelation a listening to our friends podcast and this friend of mine is much younger than I am and just in a completely different environment than I am but I'm listening to this podcast in its three millennials and they're talking about all kinds of different stuff and and kind of a what what it's like to be out there in the in the dating world right now and a listing of myself and I'm thinking to myself the word change the the you know the maybe the openness of the conversation changes but the underlying human nature just doesn't it really doesn't and I found myself as a matter of fact this person doesn't know that I'm a call them and and not give them the what for a little bit but I realize now I'm fifty years old and at fifty I just have enough life under my belt to have enough significant experiences in a lot of different areas to recognize that there are certain patterns of human nature that exist you know and as much as we'd like to change them as much as the young people of today believe that they're doing the right thing I wish that they would listen to people like me to people like you to people that are older because I I would be very honest and say here's where you're wrong and and I think the only way you can approach that conversation is I'm not saying you're a bad person because I think you're wrong but what you're saying is misguided in your perceptions because you don't have enough life under your belt to understand you know what what's happening here I have no idea why I went down this rabbit hole I've no clue what we're talking about when I started talking about this we got into the greatest thing gosh yes thank you I look at grade is a perfect example here is this sixteen year old full of passion and hormones and she's all she's completely not yeah everyone else is completely wrong and not only that she has all of these people around her they're saying you're right you're right you're right you're right wall Dave's been around long enough to see the production of the little ice age then we were all going to burn up in another ice age and there were going to burn up now we don't know what's happening with the climate change in Miami sliding into the ocean the problem is none of those things have happened and I look at how this young woman is being manipulated and I think the people around her are responsible for any negatives that befall the schools right because here's the problem she's gonna realize she was wrong at some point as we all realize I mean some of the stuff that I was hell bent on when I was eighteen and I just want to go back and say precious you just don't know what you think you know or it mortally what so much of what you think you know is not accurate you know I just I wonder what we're doing these kids is sad yes Dave here she couldn't do any or say any of the thing she's doing if she wasn't empowered by the left correct you know that and look at the people who were supporting her and you know you'll you'll get an idea of the validity of her message I also feel like that when you look around the landscape that young kids teenagers and I don't care what you become famous for when you are rocketed to fame in the teen years were people are gazing at you with adulation for whatever you're doing way maybe you're singing maybe you're an actor or actress it doesn't matter it warps you in a way that most people cannot understand because fame is a very intoxicating place to live it's like giving a kid drugs that constantly feed into their dopamine loop and wondering why they don't want to stop well one of the reasons people listen to were as state characterize serous someone who's young and not spoiled it not doesn't have all tear your motives she's on a sprite as the driven snow your and you know you you you often hear the expression out of the mouths of babes well out of the mouths of babes usually come spittle pretty much pretty much you know what's accurate about that though Dave I don't think this girl has some massive laid out a gender I think she truly absolutely one hundred percent believe that what she says is true because she's constantly having it reinforced by people around her anything in twelve years we're not any worse off than we are now what does that do to her what does that do or is she so corrupted by the fame of it all that she'll say or do anything to remain famous I there's a lot of people out there just like that whether they're Hollywood types or their academics or their failed economist Paul Krugman I'm looking at you do you know these people are will do anything to stay in the spotlight the climate is a moving target I mean it's yeah engine all the time and the people who said things ten years ago that didn't come out they just change it instead of global warming its climate change so they'll change with the reality but still be wrong correct let me tell you why because I'm on the block because we have a gas coming up at one o'clock and I got stuff I want to talk about so I met leverage your met her laughter in we had in the studio yeah you guys I've met art Laffer one time in the only word I can think of to describe him is unassuming if you walked in art art Laffer is an economist he is the man who brought the Laffer curve into the modern era which is the curve about taxation where you hit a certain sweet spot you get the most taxes in and the most you know benefits out based on the tax rate but art Laffer is like the nicest man you'll ever meet your life super polite when I say unassuming he's an economist and he's kind of stereotypical economist super nerdy nothing flashy about the guy and he was just shouted down on a university campus because students were I don't know I don't know what they were doing god forbid they learn right and I'm sure they don't had no idea of what he's don't know them no clue yeah and and apparently they have not been paying attention to the fact that the trumpet tax cuts have brought in a record tax revenues so he's been proven right over and over and over again and yet they shot him down because college kids are scared of anything they disagree with I am incredibly disappointed in chick fillet we're gonna come back to that in a little bit I have some stories that are fascinating one a doctor put someone in suspended animation suspended animation is one of those things when I was a kid I used it about in size and that's how you can do all sorts of cool thing and when you read about how he did it it's super creepy and gross but the reason people are all excited about it is this may mean that we can send astronauts to a far far destination like Saturn and we put them in suspended animation in the wake them up later I don't know if I sign up for that and we've seen it in science for forever is forever for absolutely and now we actually that's one of the things I really didn't think would happen now I have a story about the deficits that are being run under the trump administration I find it sickening it makes me angry and the only really sad part about this whole thing is I'd love to vote for the fiscally responsible party but I can't give that mantle to any of them but I can say this to the current democratic crop you show absolutely no regard for spending none whatsoever so by default I'm gonna have to go with the party that at least pretends to give it lip service those are my choices ointment suppositories you pick that's where we are right now I'm not going to drop it so you know what after today's testimony by the way I trump is really boxed himself into a corner I don't have anything about this on the blog today.

"They're allowing this perception to set in that even Chick Fillet thinks. The Salvation Army is bad and CHICK-FIL-A is willing indicate to the mob in order to get into markets if chick-fil-a is willing to been the need to the woke mob then they won't mob will be emboldened to target other groups as well and this is unfortunate because so many people have for so long supported reported chick-fil-a had chick fil A.'s. Back stood up for Chick-fil-a made went out of their way to go to Chick-fil-a to make a point of supporting that restaurant without bowing to the awoke mob without bending the knee chick-fil-a became the third most profitable fast food restaurant in the country. It doesn't need to bend the knee so be absolutely charitable doubled chick-fil-a. Let's presume. There were no ill intent. Let's presume it's just they've given money to salvation army and fellowship of Christian athletes for a long time now. They want to move on to other charities. That's fine but even in so doing we need to acknowledge that it has left an impression and chick-fil-a itself as the only entity that can clarify. That means no ill will to either these organizations and that it's still stands with these organizations and that it may come back to these organizations and that it's not running away from faith based entities that maintain biblical Orthodoxy. Only chick-fil-a can do that added until they do. They've left the impression that they are capitulating. Whether they are they aren't they can fix this. And they can do it today. They should welcome back. It is Eric Erickson here. The European show phone lines are open. Eight seven seven nine seven Eric. Eight seven seven nine seven three seven four to five Glad to have have you with me. Thanks again for the prayers for my wife and her scans were good. y'All I thought you know so. I really did on Monday. About ten. Ten thirty the Chick-fil-a a story hit the wires and I really thought it was fake news. I I really did. I never heard of the website Tim Task Topless gave if the interview to a website called Biz. Now I've never heard of business. I didn't know it was a real website and by the way it's interesting that the headline of this organization on which they gave the interview th this is. This is their headline exclusive chick-fil-a to stop donations to charities. He's with anti LGBT views. That's how even they spun the story where the CEO the the CEO Chief Operating Officer sat down with them and made this interview. So it kind of kind of plays out that They want to walk away from Christian groups that maintain biblical Orthodoxy Given they set for this interview. That's the headline. As but I did not think it was a real side. I I got got to admit I thought it was a was a scam that it was a fake news story. But it's not. It's a real website and there was another story I saw and I thought this was. I thought this was nonsensical. Do I could not believe that this was a real story and part of me still expects that the story where he's going to be denied. Let me read you the headline this is at CNN. Now I know I know I know. Come on listen I I understand I say this is at CNN. And your I ready. Oh it could be fake news. Then I get it I get it but seriously the Hollywood reporter I report of this. He's seen as picked up the story. Headline Hollywood executive one Julia Roberts of Pretty Woman Wjm to play Harriet Korea tubman in a bio pic. Now for those of you in. dekalb sub-county Julia Roberts is white with red hair and Harriet. TUBMAN is black with black hair. A Hollywood studio executive once suggested that Julia Roberts should play iconic African American activists. Harriet Tubman and a bio-pic in recent QNA's screen writer Gregory Allen Howard. Open up about the twenty six year journey to getting the Harriet bio-pic to the big screen. At the time the effort started. He said Hollywood was not the same. I wanted to turn. Harriet Tubman his life which I'd studied in college into an action adventure movie. The climate in Hollywood however was very different back then I was told how one studio head said in a meeting. This group is fantastic. Let's get Julia Roberts just to play. Harriet Tubman no one was gonNA know the difference because the People's ignorance of American history. I would point out that this guy says says I was told how one studio heads said so someone told this guy this he didn't hear it himself. But it's Hollywood you and I both Sto. This is totally plausible. It is Eric Erickson here. Welcome the phone number eight. Seven seven nine seven Eric.

Win The The sausage eggs baked is a savory. They're both very easy to make And I highly recommend them. My family typically comes to our house every year for Thanksgiving and I we do all the cooking and cleaning and housing in feeding everything. Because I'm exhausted by this time of year. I've traveled so much for the year and now with this radio show. I'm actually GonNa take take a break and not do anything this thanksgiving. It'll be unusual for me to not do any cooking for Thanksgiving kind of looking forward to it because I do it every year but typically everyone comes to our house house for Thanksgiving and what I do is I make a big batch of sausage egg bake and the French toast casserole and you can live there leftovers you can live on it for two days. Despite the number of people given the batches I make their easily doubled But it gives everybody is savory and sweet for breakfast it's the perfect combination So it's also Jake Baker French toast IOS casserole.

We didn't have space in the fridge is wrapped up tight and left him outside and then pop them in the oven the next morning and they were actually probably rally colder outside the because it got down to freezing than they were by leaving the fridge but it worked just fine.

Text the word recipe two three three seven seven Do it by noon. Own with twelve fifteen today and you'll be able to get the recipes Text recipe two three three seven seven. And you'll get some more Later this week as well L. as I make up for time on this Gordon Sunland is giving his statement right now on to the house impeachment inquiry. Let's listen to this. Just the minute had access to all of my phone records State Department emails and many many other State Department documents and I was told I could did not work with my e U staff to pull together the relevant files and information having access to the State Department materials. I would have been very helpful to me and trying to reconstruct with whom I spoken met and went in what was said as ambassador. I've had hundreds of meetings and calls with individuals. But I'm not a note taker or memo writer never have been. My job requires that I speak with heads of state. Senior government officials members of the cabinet. The president almost each and every day talking with foreign leaders might be memorable to some people but this is my the job I do it all the time. My lawyers and I have made multiple requests to the State Department and the White House for these materials yet. These materials were not provided to me and they have also refused to share these materials with this committee. These documents are are not classified and in fairness and in fairness should have been made available in the absence of these materials. My memory admittedly has not been perfect and I have no doubt that a more fair open and orderly process of allowing me to read the State Department records words and other materials would have made this process far more transparent holy cow. He's essentially throw the White House under the bus Sunlen this is zig his own. Cya Mode Holy Moly at the White House is given me or you what I need to re re. Okay I I can. I just say something real quick just just on what we heard. This is his opening statement. You you're the ambassador and it is your job to have have meetings with people and you say you're not a note taker and that you don't remember stuff so you're not a note taker and you don't remember anything. So so what good are you This is someone who probably needs to be fired I in fact there are hints of the White House. They're trying to make him the fall guy and perhaps he knows that they're trying to make him the fall guy I it sounds like he is trying to do some serious. Why why in the statement? Let's listen to a little more again. This Gordon Sunlen. He has testified before the House Impeachment Committee. Right now as I'm talking so we followed the president's orders second although we disagreed with the need to involve Mr Giuliani at the time we did not believe that his role was improper as I previously testified. If I had known of all of Mr Giuliani's dealings or his associations with individuals some of whom are now under criminal indictment I personally would not have acquiesced to his participation still given what we knew at the time what we were asked to do did not appear to be wrong third. Let me say precisely because we did not think that we were engaging in improper behavior. We made every effort to ensure that the relevant decision makers at the National Security Council and the State Department the new the important details of our efforts the suggestion that we were engaged in some irregular or rogue diplomacy is absolutely false. I have now identified certain State Department emails and messages that provide contemporaneous support for my view. These emails show that the leadership of the State Department. The National Security Security Council and the White House were all informed about the Ukraine efforts for May twenty third two thousand nineteen until the security aide was released on September eleventh. Two Thousand Nineteen. I will quote from some of those messages with you shortly fourth as I testified previously as I testified previously Mr Mr Giuliani's requests were a quid pro quo for arranging a White House. Visit for presidents. Lansky Mr Giuliani demanded that Ukraine make a public statement announcing the investigations of the two thousand sixteen election. DNC Server and Barista. Mr Giuliani was expressing the desires of the president of the United States. And we knew these investigations were important. Went to the President.

"Good Karma Mace. This curse thing has gotten out of control said happens really has who started it Start the curse Shea at the road. I know O'Shea fueled it O'Shea brought it up and here's the unfair thing about it. Of course I go all the Games. You don't win the championship every year in every sport right I mean I mean not everybody is the you know that none from from the University of Chicago and they went to the they didn't win win. That's not good enough. Yeah the it's the curse of the non the the biggest like yeah when you go to Vegas and you hit real early in your trip. Yup You like feel lucky person. Yes but if you just keep playing you'll probably hi you lose your luckier not lucky. You know who invented the Mason curse at the Internet. The Internet invented it to her. Yeah twitter it does things like Like it's over I'm on boomers payroll Dow according to twitter. When did you start working for Steve? Ball right yeah. That's the way that's the D- when did that start to happen. Greg when when did that you seek Laker Fan. Yeah it was this summer spring in June. Yeah was it before they got choir. No I think it was right before the clippers got quiet all during that whole time when it was during the ownership the the the whole thing that went on back there was nothing you could do questioning of Pelinka. I mean it was questioning a point but but that was that was before they got Qui- right but then they so they get Anthony Davis and then Laker fans are starting to feel themselves. But I think it's all connected to the clippers. Getting Kawai and the Lakers not correct. Yes you like it while there. Was this weird. Read it thing. And around. That said Steve Bomber Ulmer had bought off all local media and more people than you Jordan's over the knows the somehow bomber had bought. Everybody off now is that is that that that that was Steve Bomber. Making crazy noises. Aw that's a real human noise or Chris Farley or Chris ought to be here today. What's the difference uh-huh now that's real bomber and this is not real? Yeah but I think that's where it all started where it all starts to and you know the truth is you're listening Caspian Los Angeles. The truth is I will say I was wrong about Rob Pelinka I think rob Pelinka put together a really good roster that can compete for and possibly win a championship and I was a doubter from the very beginning now I reached the point where I said after the roster oster was complete. I said you know what I've changed my mind. I think rob Pelinka fits the suit and he has fit to suit okay. I think it's a right or wrong thing right around league. I know you deal in Talkradio right and wrong. Don't don't don't throw your nuance sat me. I live in the black or the way I don't live in the black and white not the gray. I don't live in the gray. I live in the Cray Yeah it wasn't a right or wrong guy like Rob Got Anthony Davis whether you think it was worth all those players or not or draft picks or whatever it is like he got the player right but you. You have to acknowledge now that he did a really nice job putting players around around Davison. Lebron the question is okay. Yeah rob gets credit for that. Yes you deserve sign. I think the biggest thing that I think rob has done. Really well is neutralize whatever divide there may have been with him and Lebron like that that very very public suit thing he would say over and over I was in lockstep with Lebron Anthony. Day was on every single roster decision that was made that to me was the biggest shift from last year this this year and by the way. That's just smart. It's just smart. Yeah Yeah So. That's everybody was on board and I think he gets a lot of credit for that and I also think because one you had gotta get like he wouldn't be saying that if Lebron Anthony Davis are not okay with him saying that. It's a very public posture. If you're into the mix of it all that's a really the smart thing for him to say because one now because it makes them what it's an endorsement of the roster every player on it but it also hold them accountable for the roster to last sure it was like old magic and rob or off doing their thing and then when things arms donate shooters and how many times have we play that magic. Sound the magic accent. Yeah yeah no I mean after Davison. Lebron James have their fingerprints on this roster and they are they are they should be tied to it. Yeah and it's on them to make it work as much as anyone and it's working. Its smart that was a smart political calculation in the calculation. That's just the right thing to do. I don't think that's that's political way to last year's magic had the con- magic did what he wanted to do. Okay sure Rob Pelinka said you know what I want my guys involved. I've got two of the five best players in the game. I want them involved in creating this roster and they weren't involved I think they were involved to why you Lebron was was involved the year before maybe not as overtly but I definitely think there was a consultation it was more magic and robs vision but I think heavy emphasis on the magic part of it as we. We can see just heavily emphasise the emphasis there but I think Lebron was consulted on every player So there's a very different public Stance this time one one chance at well last year was a little bit different kind of relatives where you had a team artist. This is a really good point. Greg go ahead and make it like you. Would on your Lakers so down. Dance Party on your phone brandon. Ingram Lonzo Ball Josh. Heart art they were Kyle Kuzma. Were already here already here and a half the team that they signed and that was Casey was already here unfortunately Rondo Rondo onto Rondo Veasley Beasley those are the three and you all Stevenson Stevenson. Those four guys but for the most part the team was already here whereas this year it was Kaku smell. Lebron James and that really wasn't flexibility last year because the principal players were the young core. Yeah Yeah but the all those guys that were cases made for every single one of those like they were counting on Michael Beasley. There was a choice beaten made to go after Michael Beasley said the weirdest sent last. They were counting on Michael Beasley. They were they chose Michael Beasley over bringing back for like. WHOA yeah? That was a bad choice because because they wanted to go with ball handlers. which is what Magic Johnson? That was the theory the theory was rough impersonation of Julius randle and Brooke Canton I. I don't know score. He scored in in New York. That was what they they relied on him. He scored empty points on a bad team. Correct absolutely and it didn't work here in L. A. Because he would come with the wrong shorts shorts on so. I think that I get you through. I think that last year it felt like the front office made those choices in this year. It it felt like Rob Rob and Lebron and elaborations made those. I think that's a really big. That's a really big difference because it means that everybody is on the same page H now. But you're not willing to say rob did it right. I'll say rob dinner right sure. Yeah that's fine I'm just he made by nuance. Sorry I know it's like a luck. Yes no up down in out come on you. Want to go back and talk about whether they had had to give all of the things to the Pelicans or not did they have to do. Every single one of those the pick swaps. You want to get into that really you're going to go down well that's all your nuance. You're not concerned with on that. Rabbit hole we come out of it with. Anthony Davis sign. Sign me up. Well your side to say yes or no and I'm like well the nuance matters the nuance it is what it is. We've got mad unhappy chip roster. Yeah may not matter now but let's see in three years like like when they traded for Pao Ghazal I think it was worth it. Because they won two titles with sports But then the nuance of like Oh Marcus Holland have pretty good right like that. Every day of the week on Sunday in other words it is it is it one hundred percent victory touchdown. Well if they win sure I mean you pick this team win the championship. Let me chip. Yeah so the roster must be pretty good rosters great. Yeah Steve Nash Straight. At the time people were doing touchdown dance. Were you excited about that. Trade I have to admit yeah I was right Steve. Nash was one of my favorite players and that did not work out and workout. The Lakers paid for that for years. To come judge. Things is right in that moment but that's all of the nuance of sorry. Yeah don't give me nuance. This is talk radio. We're not we're not playing in one of your long t. l. the are columns right now. What I got so we're not if I told you what if I told Ding we're not five episodes on on one thing? What if I told you what if I told you me have? Have you ever tried the what if I told you it.
