"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason. People say the Internet's a vast wasteland and sometimes there's some proof of that. When we're looking for things to talk about, we're looking for fights to be had. And I'm not talking about politics. I'm talking about the Christmas TV specials that have been on TV for the years. I mean, we can argue over miracle on 34th street or it's a wonderful life for the best Christmas movies. Yes, there are those people who want to talk about die hard. But somebody the other day was arguing about the Christmas specials that we watched growing up, starting the 60s, the Grinch, the Charlie Brown Christmas, Rudolph, all of those rank and bass Christmas specials. And talking about how they're really only two good ones, and that was the Grinch and Charlie Brown. They say if you look at the messages for some of the other ones, especially like Rudolph, they're kind of nasty. They're not very nice, and the message that's sent throughout all of them isn't necessarily say what you will, but it is an interesting thought. I got to agree we did watch the Charlie Brown Christmas special the other night on PBS and the half hour goes by so quickly and when you really stop and listen and watch and think it's powerful and it's fun too

Democrats Are Furious as Senator Joe Manchin Threatens to Sink Biden's Big Bill

"Over the failure of Joe Manchin to go along with so called build back better I mean, some of the things they're saying about this man. Bernie Sanders says he doesn't have quote the guts to stand up to powerful special interests, close quote. Remember Bernie Sanders is a self described socialist. Ayanna Presley, one quarter of the squad. Said he is obstructing the president's agenda. He is obstructing the people's agenda. He's never negotiated in good faith. Congressman Bill Lloyd doggett, he is a Democrat from Texas. Quote, the Grinch just stole Christmas for many, and don't expect any last minute Dr. Seuss happy ending. After 6 months of talking and talking, Joe Manchin finally made it unequivocal on Fox News, of course. He's with the Republicans. Again, I appreciate the fact that some independence and sane Democrats listen to my show. Again, according to the congressional budget office, that Joe Biden once called the gold standard. The bill would add nearly $3 trillion to deficits over ten years. It would cost close to 5 trillion dollars. T is in tyrannosaurus. And it never, ever, ever occurs to them that may be just maybe the Republicans? Might be onto something. That if we pass this

College Football Rankings: Alabama Is No. 1 in 2021 Preseason AP Poll

"Okay like i said earlier. It is the ap top twenty five came out just before we started alabama number one right where they left off last year. Oklahoma which finished sixth last year's number two. And then you go clemson three ohio state. Four georgia five. I can't imagine you're surprised. A who those five teams are any bit any surprise about the order. Not really Maybe like i. there's a lot of people at least in this case a lotta. Ap voters who are probably buying on alex grinch in the defense. They're certainly buying in on Spencer rattler 'cause if you look at where he was a month the season coming off that texas game i'm not sure people would have been as sold But again clemson lost terrific quarterback terrific running back and you know their defense question mark. So i don't know the you look it's it's interesting though. Like ohio state has a lot of guys to replace. Because we think it's going to be cj stroud as we're taping this podcast about an hour ago ryan day said. He is getting more separation. From the other quarterbacks we know they have really good receivers that the replace a lot of guys on the defense and the defense wasn't all that good last year.

Habima to Be Owned by Tel Aviv Municipality Following Financial Crisis

"Come to promised cast brought to you on t. v. One the voice of the city that this week announced that it is taking ownership of the national theatre habima and in so doing taking on one hundred million shekels in debt that habima has run up over the past years and in doing all this bringing to a happy conclusion a crisis that we first became aware of a year and a half ago in november twenty nineteen when a man named core case safron sued demanding that the company liquidated its assets and use the proceeds to pay the four million. It owed him for telemarketing services provided to habima by his company. Power dialing at the time the press made saffron out to be a grinch like figure shutting down the world's oldest hebrew theatre for something as unexhausted money filthy lucre. But the fact is you have to do a lot of power dialing. Run up a tab of four million shekels and it's like the old saying goes don't the cold call if you ain't got the windfall. It's the saying. I've heard a lot of people say that anyway. During the hearing it came out that the national theatre was much worse debt than anyone knew so much that that it was like an iceberg and the four million telemarketing chuckles. Were only the small little point. You see above the waterline. Which debt of course only got lots worse during the pandemic and of course the national government has an approved a budget since march twenty eighteen. Meaning that it would be complicated. And maybe even impossible for the treasury and ministry of culture in jerusalem to bail out the theater even if they were of a mind to do it and finally tel aviv mayor room the stepped up and negotiated a deal whereby the theater would become a municipal corporation like the art museum and the land of israel museum in the cinematheque and the camera theater. The director general of habima. A man named noam semel who was hired just over a year ago to steer the national theatre through its financial crisis said quote the tel aviv. Municipality is the mother and father that the bima has never had and quote

What she she brought it up and she knew what she's like you know to keep party is right. And we're like yeah and then she makes. I think it was a flip remark but just coming out of her mouth was weird. Hang the carcasses wants you joel. She hid jewish hoping to pull yorkie. That's not what's coming out of her mouth the issue it's going. I was going to see who leave. You're going to carry that one out. You know you know what the name of his eyes autobiographies dick tieman in your face and funny by the way. Did anybody notice that the kids in this movie were all like from an eighties. New wave band. Oh the hair. Yeah yeah yeah. Eagles running around. I thought it was fun. Yeah and and and what was what was the deal with needing to make the grim sympathetic but having an utterly unsympathetic other villain character and the mare. Because i didn't. I didn't understand why they i mean i don't. It almost took cast jeffrey tambor. And they're like well we gotta do something with him. Let's create this character for him. You know i get you know what the thing is. Though what jeffrey tambor was given he did a great job i love. I love him and everything he does. Yeah everything i mean. It's i mean he is. His character was exactly what it was supposed to be. He was funny you know he was. You know with Clint howard which funny do you know what clint howard characters name was finally did i. We're making funnily. Yeah except funny too. Funny a clint. Clint howard's characters name was hubris. Oh edge that interesting. yeah so you know. There's a little bit of cleverness in there. But i think the takeaway from the movie is that you're supposed to be nice to anyone even if they're grumpy unless mayor. Because fuck that guy government back that was the thing is like everyone's giving the grinch the benefit of the doubt but you get to the end of the movie and the mayor's just like it's like well what about him. He's not really doing anything any worse than what the grinch did well did. The town is like well. We need a new grinch. I guess what just turn against this asshole. Yeah and cindy lou who sticking up for him as soon as the grinches except that she she just turned her guns around like right. Now you got work on you. Listen up you all right. And then we got the ending. Where the grinch says this adds care.

"Christmas. It's practically trae. My judge here see. That was fine but then why occasionally he just gets into like doing bathroom. Lowbrow humor or we're just out of character stuff for an easy laughs. That i not care for okay over over the top stuff that you know is just completely unrealistic doing just for the sight gag like that whole you know wrecking the car. Airbags going off and everything. That would just a ridiculously stupid premise. They're setting up just just for the sight gag. Okay when when it got to the part where he changed his heart. I actually thought that was done quite well but just be than just to give credit to the movie. We can't we can't talk about this movie without at least giving a little mentioned to a cat in the hat because the cat came out right around. There was that period word sousse was everywhere before they did the Cgi movies which incidentally are fantastic. You haven't seen any of them. Coordinators who and larks both fantastic. But they were good. They're very good. Yeah legal of of the sousse family members these movies. They got in big trouble like they were pissed. Super pests especially the cat had seen it. It is a giant is designed dick and fart joke the entire movie. It has no real bearing in the story other than that. The characters are there in the story but they're putting this totally different situation. It's just complete garbage it really is. It's the same type of situation that happened to that movie. That josh was just talking about this movie where nobody could tell. Mike myers no at that point in his career. And that was kind of it too. Think i mean that was the beginning of his downfall. Yeah and that's why we're alec baldwin was on his resurgence because he told mike myers. Now we're going to give you a career. You told him no. But clint howard still goes on but this one for a lot of similarities to it i mean if if you put them side by side a you almost think there are made by the same people the same company which they might have been probably not. I didn't pay that much attention but that i mean they. They looked compatible like they were both trying to be seuss or at least look like it. But the least the grinch had more redeeming qualities. It wasn't total dick and fart but the whole time. They tried to hard to replicate the feel of it without replicating the the heart or the brains of it. Okay and that and that reggina's of socialize. You know i mean he. He's so over the top ridiculous. But i mean there's there's an intelligence to it there's a there's a there's There are still laws and rules to his university. Even though you know things are crazy. And that's where horton and the laura succeeded. Exactly okay. here's something else. I'm gonna point. I wanna say dr seuss almost did. It.

Oh nobody should forget. Flash gordon he was princess or us pet. He was an attorney. I one stab the the hawk man in the ass yes. I saw that movie in the theater. Anyway he was when he was and he was drooping cool in return to the jeddah. I i lose so much respect for lucas. When i find out some of the character's names that i didn't know for droopy cool really. Yeah yeah. I got nothing. Well we can't really make fun because we have a character. Doctor knows so.

I do i do something about it. Is you want to hear my. Oh god look at those teeth meals on. I think i think christine baranowski is much hotter than molly. An i would not disagree with that either. Cage i that maybe i might buy mattson. Was that sentence properly constructed. Or was that just wreck. But taylor mommsen anybody have an opinion on her and his red and killer monson in this role. And we'll talk about her as an adult or as a semi semi-official. But i think she was. Awesome as cindy lou. I do too. I've heard he was really rag on her for this. But i i liked her. She was really cute. She was a cute little. She played the character perfectly. It's not her fault that the character the way they chose to expand the character is a little trite and granted..

"So what do we think i mean. Honestly some of the things. I was watching like when he's on the grounds slur slamming slurping. Yo snaking snaking slithering. That's where i can't remember soothing between the trees and then when he winds up at the screen cap this when a winds up at the bottom of the foot with all the little. Who's all the candy canes. Yeah yeah the disproportionately size cames giant. When he's holding them but when they're holding them they'd look weird anyway. Yeah awesome about this. Is that all of the personality. And how the grinch stole christmas is in the grinch but he's also because you look at the who's they're kind of generic they don't have personality and the kind of move past the fact that he steals christmas because it's like it doesn't even occur to them that should ruin their holiday and that's what changes him. I think that's kind of cool and we'll get to how i think in the remake. Some of those points on why. That was so cool and the original. They kind of miss the point when they did the remake. Oh yeah go. He'll do a little bit more trivia on this. Boris karloff voice changes. When he speaks for the grinch he spoke in his narrator voice throughout the whole thing but after they recorded they removed all the highlights from his voice when he talked for the grinch and that turned to the gravel. The gravity voice at the grinch had something else i found funny and the trivia the to far who four zeh for a who four a. I didn't get that okay. Those were made to imitate classical latin. After it aired the studio started receiving letters asking for the translation from people who believe them to be really latin ice. And let's see doctor. Dr seuss thought that the grinch look like chuck jones. You know the Bugs bunny group. Bugs bunny Directed by chuck jones film Part of the warner brothers team. That did bugs bunny. And all that sort of thing you're going to be to be. That's all so which i think. Honestly the the animation this she's for nineteen sixty eight to sixty six. What i keep putting it. Yes yeah sixty six. It wasn't that great. No it was good. I mean there was a lot of. There's a lot of detail in a lot of character in the animation that you don't get it seems like you don't get any more in animation. I mean 'cause like you watch stuff like adventure time nowadays and they own. They seem to only use actual in more than six lines on character when they're trying to do something really ridiculous but you look at look at the grinch. Look at the photos on this. There's a lot of detail put into his facial structure. A lot of detail put into his his expressions and also the dog. Which named max. Avoid max max. The dog one incredible dog. Well he had a hell of a lot of character just by himself. I mean you're talking about who's being kind of generic. Grandstanding out himself was a standout character. Half human yeah. I laughed out loud. I totally forgot about the scene of the sled goes over him and he winds up in the back and shoulder like no you. Just i wound up here. But no max. Dog is fantastic Gr- i mean like like you said you'll he's a he is a character unto himself..

I'm super not kinda plays with his hair and like fingers. And i'm just like the grinch is trying to seduce the audience and the audience i guarantee is not welcoming well because it gives a really weird energy to the casting of his dog man. Oh i blocked blocked out the weird man like okay so his. What's that what's that actor's name because he's descendants. Yes right like that was also in twilight..

"Dr seuss uses the word. Slunk like he slammed. And jim gary goes just like as he moves he lasted his throat. Like at the back of his third. Like every time. I see that movie. Those moments is cracking me up. It's like such good. Just you know visible like all humor. They are the there are moments like that and i'm not i'm not like a i would not. I don't know i don't think i i'm in love or hate jim carey kind of thing when he's at his peak jim carey. That's not really my taste. Like i have seen all the requisite films in the jim carey cannon. Exactly one time and went. Okay i i understand that that is that now i i shall never see that again But then like. I watched the truman show more than once. So i'm one of those you know. I'm one of those things you know who i am. I think i've just defined myself for everyone. You like kerry. When he decided to do serious stuff. I did i did i. I liked more. That i can only i saw ace ventura. That was fine. The i know somewhere justin's going what is my wife doing. I can sense. My wife is saying something very upsetting to me. I can feel it.

"I just know you suck. That's i don't okay. listen. I don't mind that i don't mind that idea. I think the thing that really bothered me about the jim. Carrey version is what they decided to do to the who's because they made the who's say materialistic and like it's all about commercialism and that they missed the point of christmas too and it's all about decorating your house really big and who gets to be the cheer meister whatever and and the. The mayor is such a jerk. Who's like making up rules about whoville and everything. I mean like all of that stuff it undercut the whole point. Which was that the. Who's were the ones who saw that. Christmas could happen no matter what like yes. They did all the trappings of christmas. Because it's fun and we enjoy it but that doesn't mean we don't get it like we get it we just. It's also nice to get some slippers sometimes. Shoot whatever you want for christmas. What do people get for christmas. I'm an alien right now. What do you humans do for resin i. I don't know slippers and that's it. Well yeah i guess. I can understand from a narrative perspective that it is kind of like a moment where okay so we were really. We love christmas. We are so invested in all of our decorations oliver presence. An even the original. Dr seuss story. Whose go all out for christmas. You wake up christmas morning. It is all gone and you're like well that happens. I guess a well. Let's see okay fine. I don't think it's walk away. I know the lyrics are unclear. Perhaps walk away. I that's how you'd react. I don't think. I think the movie felt like it had to build it a little bit of an explanation. For why the who's decided no no. It's okay can we. Can we agree. Though that part of it. I think might be that just like you were talking about the grinch in the cartoon and in the book. It's like all dr seuss style. This is how dr seuss made things. Look and like we're familiar with that art. Were familiar with like sort of the concept of the who's as humanoid but not quite humid. You know like all that is fine when you're looking at it in a book or on a cartoon soon as you try to translate the who's into like real people and you're putting just like you can tell they've kind of changed their their face like their nose in the area under their nose to resemble the characters from the book and all that you start to enter this uncanny valley kind of thing where it's like. What is everyone. And what is the grinch in relation to that. And then because there's so much sexual energy. In the jim carey grinch which is nothing compared to matthew morrison that is the only aspect that they managed to take from the jim carey grant. Yes whole end of the musical. That part is a little. I don't love it i do. i do love martha. may. I love her cost. You mean i love that. She's the one who that has her real knows. Like if you notice all the other aesthetic and she has her regular knows. I was looking at some of the wikipedia or something. That suggested that it's been suggested that she had a nose job. And that's why she's a different..

"Yeah i can see where you fall on this. My issue with the live action grinch coal. We're gonna forget that exists for a moment. Okay we have to talk about it. They wanna talk about. Yes is that i did not need to know and i. I watched this movie when i was much younger. Probably not as young news charlier cooper but much younger i did not ever need to know what the grinch would look like in my real life. I do not need to experience that. I would see the grid. Search met him like face if base. Irl not animated a lot for children like the animated grandch-. Oh it's a cute little drawing like okay. he's green. He's supposed to be a little scary but he's different and that's okay. You know it's five. I did not need to see a grown man. As the grinch was upsetting to me as a child. And i have carried that trauma. With me. I i do. I will say that. Like both Charlie and cooper found certain scenes. Like when he's trying to be scary early on like when he's trying to freak out cindy lou who in the post office and stuff. They both found that scene. Like like. i'm upset by the grinch. Here i am scared of the grinch because he he does come across as a scary intimidating. I mean for a little kid. Yeah not me. you'll now is yes. I am not scared. If the grinch kissing. Yes you know. I i feel like in in like reference to the original story. I don't think the jim carey the live action version is necessarily doing at the most justice. But i i love it it special place in my heart that i can't really understand why it's combination of the campinas. It's kind of weird. It's a weird movie. Its galaxy weird. The mary wh- the who is the the the lovely lady who who has it. Who has a secret love for the grinch. It's christine baranowski. Yeah i don't remember her. I don't remember her name. Ma- mary may may may married mary. May mary Something that who's at the end. Martha martha martha may. That feels right right. Feel right okay. Okay yeah. I don't know i i like it. I think it's it's just it's weird. It's can't be you know. Gives into tragic backstory. Gives you cute baby grinch to i. Don't sorry said i think it looks like your youngest child and oh my god that's fair. That's fair the cast. I was looking at everyone to see their names and in real life. Looks like cooper really. Yes the actress. Yeah the branch. In the in. The jim carey version does somewhat resemble cooper and like and i will say cooper was all about that even though this was not her favorite version. When like oh my god. Are you telling me. This one has a baby grandch- and you were holding out on me. That there is a baby grandchild could be looking at and freaking out about her entirely. Had a whole conversation about whether Grinch abo might be related that little sequence where they've i will say. I think the music is good is really good in the jim carey grinch too little song but christmas love song play an and little grinches building that little angel. I dunno i love that. It's such a cute little seed. And you know bill to backstory for the grandch- which sydney does not like backstories barrett later. She does not want any sip. No sympathy for the grinch. Here i don't want to know why he suck..

Trump threatens to not sign COVID-19 bill, wants bigger stimulus cheques

"Speaking of holiday cheer. After seven months of roiling congressional negotiations congress passed a landmark relief deal. Everybody got on the same page. The seem to be a problem that was solved and then last night. President trump sent a tweet. The bill they are now planning to send back to. My desk is much different than anticipated. It really is a disgrace so aiysha. This was not an explicit veto threat. But it kind of was and the president made this after the bill had already been passed. What exactly does he want here. Yes so the president is asking for explicitly asking for a bigger payments Stimulus payments for individuals two thousand dollars for individuals. Four thousand dollars for couples He also said he wanted The tax break that was brought back in this Bill to last for longer than what is in the bill. Right now This tax break is known as the three martini. Lunch tax break by critics of who say that it benefits you know executives more than it will benefit struggling restaurants but those are some of the things he also raise these concerns about other things being in the bill not seemingly acknowledging that this isn't just a covert relief package but this is a a spending bill. It's the the relief package is coupled with the spending bill that funds the entire government. Right right. I mean these. These are programs that the president asked for his own budget months ago and programs that he has signed previous annual spending bills mean things like money for the military more money for the military money for military. Pay raises an endeared. Your we talked about this a lot but it's worth just emphasizing one. More time as the president comes out and tries to blow this up. After the bill had passed after congress has left town he was absolutely totally disengaged from these negotiations for the last few months right. I mean really. That's been the president's mo during his entire first term. I mean he. He has not really engaged that much with congress. He left the negotiations on this cove. Relief bill as he had in previous covid relief packages to his treasury secretary steven mnuchin and republicans on the hill were given the assurances that the administration was signed onto this package. And and it's it's really worth pointing out that. The the party that the president is undercutting the most here is republicans because he comes out and says i want two thousand dollar relief checks for every american republicans had negotiated this down to six hundred dollars and it was interesting. You saw a house speaker. Nancy pelosi say right right after. This video came out great. Yeah let's do two thousand dollar relief checks. I'm all for it yes. A president trump is sort of acting a bit like a grinch for republicans right. He's still in there Christmas a deal at this point. It seems like he's very angry with republicans in general and not just about this issue but really about the overall him feeling like they're not backing in his reelection bid. Right now backing. You mean saying that we're going to overturn the results of an election that oven election. Yes of an election that that happened. It seems like he's angry at them so now he's calling out you know different. Republicans whether it's senator john thune. Who's a top republican in the senate You know calling out mitch mcconnell so i it seems like this was president trump. We don't know whether he will actually veto or not but saying look i'm still the president i can still. You know demand attention and i can gum up. The works abet teardrop. Do you have any sense how this could play out going forward. I mean given that now you have democrats running in the special election in georgia. You have the house speaker saying yet. We've been pushing for bigger payments. Let's do two thousand dollars like what. What are the options going forward. And and what are the deadlines that we need to think about. I mean i think what we're looking at is a couple of deadlines one is tomorrow. The house will come in and has what. It's called a pro forma session which is really just usually like housekeeping day over the holidays. But what they're going to do tomorrow is try to pass a bill calling the president's plan and say we would like consent to increase the stimulus check payments to two thousand dollars like the president said we would expect the a house republican to object

Christmas trees business thriving during pandemic, helps struggling families

"Cropped the kidney. It's stuff that tree up. Yeah. The Grinch stole the whose Christmas tree, but one are about a business is doing its level. Best to make sure families who don't have a tree this year can get one and get one for free. They've done this for the last two years and 20 twenties. The trifecta. We're joined now by Julie Actor with Actors Garden Center in Nevada in Julie. Thank you for joining me this morning. Good morning. Thank you for having me. Tell me about what inspired this idea for you all. But that's all started back in 2018. And we're going into the week of Christmas. And we had all these extra trees that we knew we weren't gonna sell. On guy just couldn't bear the idea of all these trees going the way so we came up with this event to donate the trees, the families and need. It was ended up being this huge success and we just heard so many amazing stories, and we had So much amazing support that we decided that we wanted to do it again in 2018. So last year we brought in about 55 extra trees and Our customers, all donated ornaments, treat them decorations, and we distributed that the trees. This is now our third year and I think Over the past few years was given up about 135 trees, families. I'm wondering, and you may know better, obviously, because we're upon it as this year. Have you seen more people in need of trees because obviously the economics of the pandemic. Yeah, definitely it So this year was, um, a little bit tougher for us. We brought in extra trees that we actually pulled out early. So I've been scrambling for the best week trying to find extra trees that we could do this giveaway. And we're able to thinking about 30 from my local tree. What And then our friend that Jensen Flower and garden actually donated the rest a barrel unfold trees, so kind of Ah group effort, and I know there's a lot of people out there this year that That didn't have it in the budget says to get against Christmas trees. We're really excited that we're able to pull this off and really excited for you. But today, I was going to say, I mean, it must be bittersweet. The fact that there's such demand that that makes you feel good that you're helping people but also that there's such demand that a lot of people are are really struggling. I wanted to ask. It's been a rough time financially for so many. I don't have to tell you that you're experiencing that and seeing that with with customers who need trees. How has the business How is your business survived? Drink over 19. Yes, There's kind of a roller coaster for us. We do about 80% of our years sales and three months and the pandemic hit right before those three months started. So it was pretty scary for us in the beginning, and there's like the very real possibility If we shut down the Let's get that out of business by the end of the year, And so that was pretty scary that we ended up being very fortunate. And with everyone staying home and working in their yards, our industry kind of boom sharing this all of this We've been very, very fortunate this year that we've done so well and we're just excited that we could give back and help people that weren't so fortunate that and I imagine I'm sure your employees are thankful that they're able to continue to work as well because of the difficulties. I'm just curious was your business, one of those to take advantage of the P P p when it was available. We did, um, we actually shut down. We went to it. An online store for about a month and a half we were forced to close were considered an essential business. That we lost a lot of employees. It just didn't feel comfortable being there. So which transitions you an online store for about a month and a half, which was an experience in itself on and then reopened in May that thinks that it's kind of in a roller coaster for us. It's been a crazy year and we're just very fortunate that That we came out. Okay with it all, Julie, With the moment we have left If you were talking about that you've gone through your trees, but

"I was not a big fan of the way i would make this better. Make it look nicer. Ron howard has made nice looking movies. Like apollo thirteen is gorgeous. Compare to this movie. I don't know what the choice was. They made it like this. And jim carey replaced him gary with somebody. I don't even know. I needed more subdued grinch for me like it's so like fourth wall breaking and he just seems like he's in a completely different movie and that's fine if you're jim carey but it just doesn't work. I mean disagree. I'm not saying there's ways to not make the movie better i. I'm sure that there are. I agree. I think it would be better. If whoville had had a little bit more of a christmas feel to it its own feeling and seven being drab and and just weird angles. I like jim carrey in it. I don't think you need to have a love interest in this movie. I don't see the reason for that. I think if you're gonna have martha may who in it. It really should have just been martha may versus molly shannon's character kind of thing. I don't really care about the grinch is a child. We don't need to see in my opinion why he hates christmas. I think it's better off that he just hates christmas. Like in the the cartoon. It's just it's known that he hates it. He's more of a not a mythological figure but he's almost like the bogeyman in a way. I would say that it would have been better to have a more defined outline of the father because i i agree i think just that him being closer to cindy lou doesn't necessarily give you a whole character arc Yeah i think it would have been cool if the father and cindy are closer. You get some more scenes with them. Because you don't really see cindy with her mother at all. I think molly shannon's characters just kinda wasted. I get it. It's supposed to be the grinch and cindy those are the two main characters i get that. But if that's the case then you should really just go all in on them and not really care about the parents or if you want to. If you're going to have the parents around us care about the parents Also on a more just like who gives a shit note. It would have been so great. If martha made just doesn't go for either. The mayor or the grinch some like like jerry or our. Our that have been great. I don't care about the him as a child. it's creepy. yes. I love that performance of that young grinch though scary man. That's that's a scary grinch. That's what the grinch should be. Yeah that's true. I don't know it's very unsettling like the way they could portrayed yep all right he goes. Play your ship. Sure at do you quite one. Twenty two is my personal twitter account. I also run the stranger damian twitter account that are real played indie podcast.

"Then we go back to the grand shoes acting just like jim carey. Which i hate nice southbound. His house sometimes shouting no reason and then. There is an inconsistency to whether or not the grinch should be wearing clothes that makes us movie complicated. I give you that the whole choice of him wearing clothes and the clothes that he wears is very suspect. Yes is the point where he puts on the kilts and then rips off the kilt. And there's a there's a patch a hair but sort of looks like a dick. He i think he wears a nightgown. Wigan ninety like a sheer ninety who decided it couldn't have been ron howard who said that's a good choice. I mean he's director. He gets files. He should get final. Say on everything. He's got to approve everything right. That's just cut my checks. I don't remember that being in the dr seuss book him wearing sexy ninety. Didn't wear the the boost. The they stopped there. That's good yeah. I wonder how far they wanted to go with it though. He then checks his answering machine because this was two thousand and then settles down at his lounge chair to eat bottles beer bottles and yell at his own echo. I'll say the ada joke works. Yes yes it's clever. I'm glad you liked that. I would have been very upset. I remember raffling in the theater. That's hilarious. I mean it's not a roughly moment anymore but it's like that's clever. Yeah i look forward to it. Every time i watch it. Then cindy lou who goes to the grinches former adopt the moms to find out about the grinch and they tell a story about how they became his caretakers men. Apparently the who is are dropped off in basket sorta like storks. Unless this is just the story that they're telling cindy lou but then that just still adds the question. In where the hell of the grinch come from so the moms talk about their annual christmas party. They used to have every year which is a swingers party and swingers. Apparently listen to smash mouth while they see now. This kind of lends credence to the to my idea where there's only fillet xio right Because if if no one's banging how they they're not having kids that way so it's just being delivered so everyone's just blowing each other.

Covid-19 Restrictions Being Lowered In Britain For The Holidays

"Prime minister. Boris johnson has urged his fellow citizens to reconcile themselves to the idea of having themselves as he put a merry little christmas keeping gathering small and celebrations modest. And if there's any one person. In britain who can be taken completely seriously as a model of prudent abstemious restraint in their personal it is surely boris johnson covid nineteen restrictions will be relaxed over christmas but the government seems to be hoping that people will observe from anyway. It is infamous fairness quite the messaging challenge especially as vaccinations begin how to remind people that while we may be on the right track. We are not the woods on with more on this by lance price former director of communications at ten downing street lance if we focus specifically on the messaging challenge over this christmas would actually be easier. If there wasn't a vaccine. Well i don't know about that would be simple. Obviously if he could just say to everybody you can't dismiss. Let's cancel christmas. I'll be grinch. I know it's tough. But i'm prepared to do it because people aren't going to die if i don't and the vaccine certainly complicates whose ability to say that there's any evidence that he wants to say anyway and but it does make the challenge of advising people that the rules of area but that actually the government doesn't want you to follow the rules and he says it's too late to check for people to change their plans and then in the next press. He advises people to do exactly that. And to restrict themselves to stay in fewer people for less time than the rules actually allow. What would be the political judgment against just going full grinch. Would it be as i think a number of skeptics have suggested just that boris johnson has a chronic aversion to bearing bad news. Or or would it be a apps. More realistic assessment. That people just wouldn't listen anyway more of the latter than the former. He's had to accept his responsibility for delivering bad news. And although he's always reluctant to do it and he looks very uncomfortable doing it. He has full become used to having to do that. And i think where he's falling down. These is in in recognizing with the vaccine starting to be rolled out with relatively slowly. And it's only a relatively short period of time. Now that people have to knuckle down and be super super castle and He has taken his foot off the accelerator. He said that people can have this five day break and over over christmas when he knows in his heart of hearts. An older advisors are telling him this that it's very dangerous. Relaxation of the rules and that people will die one commentator in the in the times of london this morning describing those people who will out sadly lose their lives as being like you know the young men who went over the wire in the dying hours of the first world war just before the armistice signed. When you think back to your time in downing street did you have a general philosophy or idea of an approach for a moment of national crisis. Was there a a tone you so you thought you should take. Yes and i think. I'm a clearly nothing on the scale but we had to deal with some pretty bad news that had to be delivered to the to the public about health crises and about other matters as well and they approach to be always was to be extremely direct. Not give anybody the impression that you're holding anything that lay the facts on the table and actually go for a harder. Line the hats. You might be tempted to go full because you'll always regret it if you don't think that's a lesson that this government hasn't managed to learn. Do you think it's arguable. That boris johnson's appeals to a sense of personal responsibility. Fall into that whether that can be set to fit into the axiom that a moment like this. It's better to treat people like this soldiers than treat them like the victims. You know give people a sense of responsibility. Give them a a sense of purpose. Not that's all very well. We've some people clearly clearly doesn't work with other people. I think they have the evidence now to back that up because we have seen in parts of the country where people have been told to behave themselves in toll to a dietary restrictions. And they haven't done if you look at those graphs. We say on the on the news every night as they are taking up again despite the two or three restrictions that have been imposed and there is still that element of confusion about the door and people unsure about whether or not they all supposed. To be a vein. The rules or not just a few minutes ago. We had the health secretary in the house of commons announcing that cut large areas southland east of england being put into the higher tier two to three but literally less than a week. Not enough time for to make any difference and all of that is it. Goes against the sense of either got options. One is to give people personal responsibility and i just ask them to be sensible and appeal to their better. Nature's other to tell them have to do. It's fully between both stools. Do you think the government has yet recovered the credibility it squandered earlier in the year by defending dominic cummings for flouting the rules that they had themselves laid down an indeed that he'd helped drawer up that lingers that linda's own that was a key turning points in the government's communication strategy and in the confidence that the public advised from from number ten. The prime minister look really embarrassed when that was put to him directly by the labour leader promises questions on yesterday He didn't even answer. Didn't attempt to answer because there is no answer he can give to that. And and and i think that from that moment on people were less feeling. Well i will make up my own mind about this and in many ways the libertarian and boris johnson is okay with that it wants people to make a thorough months but he wants to make the right decision and and it don't make the right decision a he knows in his heart of hearts going into going into christmas and that if there is a significant increase in deaths over christmas he might try to blame it on people not doing not doing what. He's advise them to but most people will blame it on him for not been clear. They just finally do you think. Boris johnson has yet found a way to adjust himself to what is clearly a serious situation. I know we've talked about this before that you you have now. Situation where amount newest spent his entire career in public life pitching himself as a fundamentally unserious figure has to lead the country at a moment like this he struggles with it on on a daily basis. And you can see that in the not only the lack of clarity in his mind every time he opens melted public. Whether it's a news conference or the house of commons you can see that. He's wrestling with the prime minister. Team wants to be in thought it was going to be on. The one is having to be in the midst of this crisis. And i'm afraid his critics and i would count myself among them. have never found the need to revise our view. That is the romance. The job at this time land price. Thank you as always.

Covid-19 cases are on the rise in all 50 states, taking a toll on healthcare workers

"Rise hospitalizations rise deaths rise. Were really hitting a bad part of this pandemic all over again and one of the things that we always like to check in on is our doctors or nurses are healthcare workers. It's been a tough go for them. You know they're the ones on the frontlines dealing with the patients all the time and helping people get better and we've done stories in the past before already on the podcast about the burn out that the doctors and nurses are facing some of them are retiring early all that jazz but right now you wrote an article sarah how some of this coronavirus disbelief is really affecting them. You know it's hard for them to go there every day but still constantly hear people say that it's not as bad as it seems or it's a hoax etc etc. So tell us a little bit about some of the conversations you were having with doctors and nurses about this. So i spoke with several doctors and nurses across the country and basically what they described or treating patients who are seriously ill in the hospital as part of their job and then going home and either in the line at the grocery store or through family or friends and family hearing from people who think the viruses hoax or just not as serious as public health officials have said it is and they say that that sort of disbelief on top of months of physical and mental demands of caring for very sick patients during the pandemic is frustrating and draining. The overarching is that if the broader public is not taking the pandemic and the associated risks seriously does it risk furthering the viruses spread. I mean it's a weird situation We see it a lot playing out in the media. Obviously how bad it is. We see our local elected officials talking about it constantly imposing new restrictions and lockdowns. And that's probably fueled some of the frustration on the part of people not wanting to go through that obviously huge economic effects that are going on because of it is hard for a lot of people and despite these huge numbers. There's a lot of people that have not gotten this and maybe some people don't know somebody of the that might have gotten it so it might fuel some of that skepticism. They said you know some of this in their sort of groups have family and friends is rooted in the fact that there were parts of the country that shut down before the virus was widely circulating there. So there's this frustration from economic losses whether it be a job or just instability in a person's household by nansha situation that contribute to this frustration. I shut down. Continue as the numbers. Continue to swell. You had a story about a nurse. In el paso texas who had a patient and early november wheeling him out of the intensive care unit and he was still saying it. Wasn't that bad at that. The media was exaggerating it. She she that time to say that he was the only person that she had treated that day. That was able to converse with her. You know and that also the she was treating severe that she had seen in ten years as a nurse so she said that inoculation. The patient change their mind other healthcare professionals that i talked to said at times. They say more of an uphill climb in convincing those around them that this is real and one of the things that came up repeatedly in the conversations i had with healthcare workers and what they hear from the communities around them are patients. Is there have been conflicting messages around. America's mask wearing early on and because the virus continues to spread. Now there's not only a pandemic fatigue but there's a little bit of with lash in terms of what measures should i or should i not be taking a making a difference. That might have been one of the biggest

Yeah universal grinch so. Yeah man like. I've always wanted to do that for sure. So yeah next year special radar rundown on the road. no definitely. we're going to do a lot. More rare rundown.

Rundown the fucking grand canyon. I don't give a shit all right. So we got anything for florida man and or dictionary dictionary. I get it if we don't. We may or may not know. Yeah actually i've got. I've got to urban dictionary for you. Okay let's do those okay smooth brain smooth brain. Yes i would assume. I would assume smooth brain is somebody who's stupid. Yeah that's how i mean that's that's accu. Yes as stupid person. Yeah okay. It refers to the lack of surface area on an individual's brain. The general thought is that the more surface area wrinkles creases etc brain has smarter personalities. Brian conversely a person with a smooth brain no wrinkles has less surface area and therefore be stupid centrally having like a rubber ball for brain. You know what bob. I'm really impressed that you actually got. Because i thought you were going to say something like the brains from like the movie waiting you like blonde show balls and it looks like brain like somebody's shaved scrotum rains. You're literally that was my knows. All that's not just gonna be like my brain just going to go to balls. That's where your thought i just. That was my first thought. Oh that's the brains but adams brown fruit basket okay. This is the second one. Go ahead micro. Cough might micro cough yet I would assume okay. I'm assuming that you have. It will be the attempt to hold in a cough pretty much is. What's the real tiny. almost imperceptible. Cough usually hidden behind a mask due to emphysema asthma allergies of the covid so as not to alarm others to your potential of being the infected patient zero so there you go okay so microsoft and smooth brain not a ball sack not the boss and then i do have one florida man story. That has been hitting national news. Everybody's been seeing about the old man that never removes the cigar from his mouth. That is the true florida man. Over at the age of. I think he was in his sixties are explained because all is guy smoking a cigar. He jumps into the pond to rescue his dog from being attacked by an alligator granted. It wasn't a very big. It wasn't like a big dog wasn't a it wasn't a very big dog like an ankle biter type dog and it was like it wasn't like a baby alligator but it was still a young ling but it was trying to eat his dog and he was smoking a cigar. He just puts a cigar in his mouth. And fucking dives in like steve. Irwin just like fucking. Polls this gator out of the water prize open its mouth and lets his dog. Oh or whatever cigar still like dude head is like underwater trying to get this thing pulls up and he still has. That's crazy first of all awesome that he saved his dogs. Secondly but do you know the kind of pressure that is required to open a gaiter. It's actually easier to hold an alligator mouth shut than is that it is to open it. Oh yeah the amount of pressure it takes to hold it. Shut is very little. Which is why you see. All these people do like these alligator wrestling there. These whatever they can link hold a mouth shut and it's like oh my god. Yeah it's actually. The gator has much bigger problems trying to open. Its mouth when you shut but it to hold a mouth open to open gator's mouth. Yeah that's where all the powers. Yeah so but if you're you're from florida you also know when there's a little alligator. Yeah you know there's a big one and if you start fucking with that little one that big ones coming after you show up the mama. No i didn't see in the video that amama showed up. No but that would have been like the i. I probably wouldn't have even overreacted to that thought right. I probably would be like that motherfucker. He's got my dog. he's gonna die. Now i don't know didn't kill the gator. I don't think so. No no i have the Small news article on everything. We'll give the video to patriot. Yeah okay so so. We have the video on that but other than that. There's only one other florida man news. We've already mentioned it before. Okay i just did not know that. It happened on christmas eve so here.

Choosing and Decorating your Christmas Tree

"Don't know about you. But i used to be caught in the traditional decorations verses pretty designer ish tree quagmire and once had a condo as a single gal and i got a metallic green intentionally. Not real looking. Dr seuss looking skinny tree from my place that was decorated in brightly. Dr seuss ish colors. I was single. And i could do what i wanted fast. Forward a husband child later. And we started accumulating homemade and keepsake type ornaments. Each year we get a metal ornament with our family portrait on it so in eighteen years will literally have a tree called memory lane but these handmade and photo ornaments. Don't necessarily go with the aesthetic vision. I have each year. We have our ornaments stored in bins by color. So each year we can change up the look or mix two colors or whatever we choose without hauling all the bins. Only those we want because they're labeled my answer to this conundrum of looks verses homemade ornaments was to have both so my tiny twelve inch wide by five foot. Tall grinch tree goes upstairs with all the kid ornaments. My childhood ornaments are photo ornaments and the wool animal ornaments. That my son loves downstairs. It's the more aesthetically pleasing and real freshly cut christmas tree. We get the best of both worlds and we managed to do it without a lot of space. Size and proportion is tricky to judge. If you're going to cut down your own tree because large trees look small when sitting out in a field take you're measuring tape and measure the height of your ceiling and then subtract the height of your star for the top and then subtract the height of your tree stand and then allow for at least two inches of breathing room in between the top of the star and the ceiling. Next measure your maximum width allowing for ample space to walk around and take these measurements with you to the field. When buying or cutting the tree better homes and gardens has a great article titled how to choose the best live christmas tree which linked to in the podcast notes. The douglas fir is a long lasting cut tree that holds its needles well with a pyramid shape and bluish green color. It's one of the most popular types of christmas trees available in most regions. They're lush and full with compact branches and a strong evergreen sent for heavy ornaments. They recommend a frazier for. It's also very fragrant with by color. Needles deep green on top and silvery white below. This tree is more cone shaped so it would fit well in a smaller room or tucked in a tight corner. If you have a collection of heavy ornaments or lots of lights in garland. The frazier is a good choice with its sturdy branches. If you're all about the sent choose a grand a for with shiny by color needles. Bright green on top white striped underneath the grand for has needles that are softer to the touch than some other popular furs which gives the tree a fine textured appearance. This species is possibly the most fragrant among all the first boasting a strong spicy sent. The noble for has well spaced branches covered with upwardly curved blue green needles and aren't as quickly as some of the others though it stiff branches can support plenty of ornaments and lights noble. I have a similar pyramid-shaped. Douglas firs but better homes and gardens. Thinks they haven't even more classic. Christmas tree appearance with an almost layered look to the branches. If neat and tidy is your thing a scotch pine might be the one for you with a conical shape piney sent an excellent needle retention the soft green needle. Stay on the branches. Even if the tree gets dry so you won't be left with a lot of clean up if you forget to water it for a day or two. They often have slightly crooked trunks. Which can be a plus. If you like a tree with a little personality of fresh green color and tiered branching structure make eastern white pine contender. It's long thin. Needles result in a more texture is christmas tree and it's also a popular choice for read this the writers especially love a white pine for a minimalist christmas tree. Look they're flexible. Branches aren't the best for supporting heavy ornaments. But you can still deck them out with garland and lights.
