But so the super league proposed by andy staples he has. Let's see fifteen teams only team all right. Well there was only twelve. Or i think there's only twelve in the super league. Now they were gonna eventually get the twenty. they're starting with twelve broke alias. Twenty-five i liked this

We found an article. And we're gonna we're gonna borrow this article and talk about our thoughts on some of these things in flight magazine. Which is the texaco flight. Training magazine from the ao pa. Still the one that i get imprint. I much enjoy it. has a lot of good things in it as a relates to flight training. So if you're not a member of the go register you'll get the magazine for free either imprint of electronic but way back in january of two thousand eighteen There was an article written ten things ten mistakes. That student pilots do wrong. And we're going to talk about those while the examiner. I know you see a lot of things that go wrong. let's jump right in. We've we've done some of these topics but we'll we'll go through all ten of them. What's number ten number ten pertains to checklists and lonely appalled. We have done a An episode on the usage It is something that is required to be graded or or evaluated. Rather i should say on a check ride Pretty much on on all the landings. All all the takeoffs and everything down there in in One of the elements that i'm supposed to be looking at as proper use of checklists and You know it's pretty simple. If if you don't use a checklist you're obviously not properly using it. So i see Occasionally on on check. Rides that that applicants. Are you know especially for our landing checklist. They're just using gump's and they're going through it and they're going through their mind. But there's not a checklist anywhere close And that's that's really a bad habit pattern I and i know Maybe a cessna one seventy two especially a fuel injected one where carburetor heat is not Introduced to the the scenario. There's really not a whole lot to do As far as landing. You know as far as Checklist items But it's it's a habit pattern it something that is required and it something expected When you get a job plan a big airplane especially at an airline. Checklists are are used. They're used every time You know. I fly big airplanes and some of our checklists. Only have three items on them. And i have a memorized. But i still pull out the checklist and i look at it and i read it and i i respond to it appropriately so it is a big item. You know you're not gonna fly the same airplane all the time. You may fly. An airplane now has cal flaps. You may be flying. Fuel injected one seventy two. And you're used to that but today you're flying an end model and you've got carburetor so you got carburetor heat to be considered and that's all on the checklist Landing lights Just just everything. That's on the checklist is it's there for for a reason so you know it's something that that We we need to do better with you. And i think as a student pilot when i was training you i did get lulled into this fact that i'm flying saint planes. They don't the school when i was going here. Only had one seventy two. So i was always flying a one. Seventy two all tricycle fixed gear aircraft. You could get lulled into that. But i've flown a lot of different types of aircraft. Now and if i only thought of those items on one seventy two n p models than if i did like you said flu anything else that i could get myself in trouble or hurt pretty quick right so number. Nine on. This list is poor weather. Planning i find that to be something that I find myself chasing people down talking about on a regular basis at the flight. School people learning how to fly. They wanna go. They wanna go And they just i don't. I don't think as much as we talk about it. I still don't think students understand. The dangers of what weather can do to us. And that weather as europe pilot and you fly weather is not necessarily the same three or four miles from here. We can see here. Might not be what. What's going on three or four miles away And it's it's shocking. I think i've told the story of trying to fly to brenham to see my dad. Not that far away didn't do a weather briefing or really understand all about the weather. Pass this airport and get out there and be a wall of clouds just five or ten miles away and have to do you know quote unquote a holding pattern out there for for a thirty minute time. They would burn off but they never burned off. And i wasted a lot of gaffes in a lot of my time Trying to get somewhere. That i could have solved for that. If i would've just looked at the weather

The Story of Auld Lang Syne
"Well when this time of year rolls around you probably will hear one song and one song in particular seemingly over and over again. Quick note here. I was listening to my christmas traditional songs. And i kept hearing it. But what song am i talking about. Well i just told you old. Elaine sign it does have a rather big nostalgia meaning to it and along with it here in the united states. A bit of sadness and usually marks an emotional scene or we action. The song. old lang sign was originally written in scottish. When taken apart and put back together again. An- actually means old long sense and is translated yet again to mean all times sake or for the sake of old times this song that is mostly sung and means the emotional conclusion to another year. And don't we need that. It also means that one must remember people from their past and raise a toast to them. Originally it was written many many years ago as a scottish celebration song. Old lang zayn is actually a scottish language. Written by robert burns in seventeen eighty eight and set to the tune of a traditional folk song. But did you know that. In the netherlands. It is a soccer anthem and in japan. It is a song about firefly's and and south korea. It was the national anthem until nineteen forty eight. It is known as being easily adaptable and mostly all musical styles. That is why it is so cool but at its core it is well known and many countries especially in the english speaking world. It's traditional use. Being to bid farewell to the old year at the stroke of midnight on new year's eve it is also sung at funerals graduations and as a farewell or ending to other asians the international scouting movement in many countries uses it to close jamborees and other functions and a little note here when i was watching the crown on netflix day. Sung it when they said goodbye to the prime minister. Certainly most of us know the song old lang zayn but to quote from the first stanza of the english version of the james watson ballad. Here it goes should be aware since be forgot and never thought upon the flames of love extinguished and fully past and gone is thy sweetheart now grown so cold that loving breast of nine the thou cast never once reflect on old lang zayn in scotland. It is common practice that everyone joins hands with the person next to them. To form a great circle around the dance floor at the beginning of the last verse. Everyone crosses their arms across their breast so that the right hand reaches out to the neighbor on the left side and vice versa win the tune ends everyone rushes to the middle while still holding hands when the circle is re established everyone turns under the arms to end up facing outward with hands still joined in countries other than scotland. The hands are often crossed from the beginning of the song at variance with scottish custom. And did you know. The scottish practice was demonstrated by queen elizabeth second at the millennium dome celebrations for the year. Two thousand some press outlets berated her for not properly crossing her arms. She was unaware that she was incorrectly. Following the scottish tradition and because of its easy tune and melody it was also used as a song to signify for the war to end having the title. I wish the war was over and it was a popular anti-slavery song entitled fling out. The anti slavery flag both were using old anxiety as the basis for those songs. If you listen closely you can hear the song all lang sign and many movies too. Well did you know that these movies are we willie winkle a nineteen thirty seven. Shirley temple movie when her character sings to console a dying soldier. Mr smith goes to washington the nineteen thirty nine movie. Ocean's eleven the original of nineteen sixty as background music and the poseidon adventure one of my favorites that was made in nineteen seventy two ghostbusters and nineteen eighty nine. When harry met sally in nineteen eighty nine as well forrest gump in nineteen ninety four and elf and two thousand and three and most notably the very last song that is in the movie. It's a wonderful life with jimmy stewart. It is after all probably the best feel good ending in a classic movie ever with plenty of emotion for the main character at the last scene of the movie which brings george bailey the main character to tears as he acknowledges how great life really is and it is always at the stroke of midnight composer guy lombardi would play it on the radio and continued the tradition for fifty years afterwards. Dick clark took it up to play at the stroke of midnight on. Dick clark's new year's rocking eve. Every year and new york city as the big ball dropped at the stroke of midnight but after dick clark retired from the show ryan. Seacrest did the same at the stroke of midnight every year. They all had something in common with playing the song. It was an remembrance of those that came before and at the same time to mark the new year. All the fans and celebrators would sing along to the classic song so this year twenty twenty when the clock strikes. Twelve a m sing along to this classic song. Even if you don't know all the words we are indeed saying goodbye to twenty twenty

"The I. Thought it was bad. And chugging along at number fourteen last year's best picture winner Schindler's List sharing a box office with the this year's winner. In Spielberg won best picture back to back when you think about it, that way that's crazy like Spielberg finally wins than his great protege wins the next year and We have finally fully conquered. Yes we this is it. It's ours. The oberg presents the awards a Meka's where he's onstage looks at the envelope and he says like, Bob, and it's like the pride of a father saying you won MVP but it's bizarre when you consider like that Spielberg AIDS Meka's like the fast track for like he did in so much quicker and Spielberg did it in so many ways even though we have a couple of blocks at the beginning. While that's it. Forrest gump we did it guys already can't crack the movie or did we'd probably not. Yeah we did everyone knows how they feel about this movie now definitely, everyone's feels very clear about it Can I just say because I couldn't even begin to dig into it it's just too fucking dance and so much its own thing I did want to spend too much time talking about gump and Co the sequel. But I think it's important that people know that gun been co is a book about quote unquote the real forrest Gump whose life has sort of been ruined by the fact that they made a movie about his life starring on Hank's that was a big hit and won a bunch of Oscars and everyone thinks that that's what really happened. It's like Don Quixote esque. The book is a sequel to both his original book, and the way that culture has taken hold of forrest gump and earned it into something different. So it's forrest gump trying to outrun the shadow of forrest Gump. The movie being like now everyone thinks fucking Tom Hanks on not enforced dumb I'm not that pleasant. it's a very, very, very.

"For really starting after this is being like. Most hyper competent steady man. You know the thing we always talk about like Tom, hanks, movies about guys were good at their job. And that since run that starts right after this where he has. Ten consecutive hundred million dollar movies. If you discount that thing you do because he's not the lead, it's like every movie from forrest Gump straight to. Has Been. You can maybe there's one after that makes over one hundred, billion dollars. Ends with the terminal. Forest gump. including the to Toy Story but saving private Ryan Apollo Thirteen. Has Two way. Road Russia perdition. It Starts Philip Right? It really starts to the League of their own. It's just Philadelphia makes a little older and that thing you do kind of break. But yes, you have you know thirteen toy story same by Ryan. You've got mail toy story to join mile castaway road to perdition catch-me-if-you-can. Hey. Man had hits I. Think it's interesting that like forrest Gump is kind of the outlier in all the other things are like hanks just knows what he's doing. You know even straight to bridge a surprise and Captain Phillips unsullied obviously is like Hanks's incharge and then this is the movie where it's like Hanks's oblivious king says no one keep on stumbling ass backwards into victories, which is at such. Weird odds with everything you were saying journal about what hanks represents but I think that a nate energy he has which is not in line with the character and in theory works against. But the character is supposed to be is why the movie works for people because you don't get uncomfortable feeling like you're watching an idiot savant because there's that sense of like hangs knows what be doing, right? Like this guy's just a pro. Should we talk about the the other cast I mean I I really like Gary Sinise in this movie Gary, the best performance them he's so good in it. He is and he's doing his thing like and that's not to dismiss his thing but he has such a well of sadness and rage like that. He can just pull upon instantly and is like cleanse. For everything, which is his thing right? Like that's his thing. Yeah. I would say is Gary. sinise kind of clenched teeth Guy Right? You're going to bring him in. On stages like Steppenwolf legend like in a movie, you're going to bring him in. He's GonNa clenched his teeth and either turn out to be a fair guy or the bad guy. Like the Third Act twist right there's a lot of Gary sinise paycheck secret bad guy. He seems like the best friend for the first two acts. He ends up being the bad guy in thrillers for like four or five years act and he's like Oh. Look there's nothing could do look they had my wife in the in the car look I. Got In. Country he's in page. I swear I tried to be a good guy. He's in three movies with. kinks I'm believe this Apollo Thirteen and the Green Mile Right? He's he's sort of A. Frequent, collaborator. That run yes. Good in Apollo. Thirteen. Yeah, he's so yeah. Lieutenant Lieutenant Dan is also Jenny gets every horror visited on her but lieutenant Dan a pretty crucial character if you're going to embrace the more acidic reading of this movie. The the scene after after it leaves the talk show whatever lieutenant data's on the you know beats him in the wheelchair and he says to him They gave you the Congressional Medal of honor. You Idiot who goes on TV in plays a moron got the Congressional Medal of honor in that just feels like Gary sinise. Or the character channeling some like us yet right critiquing the movie being like what the Hell is going on here. He just met John Lennon and that scene. John Lennon to start thinking about no religion. Talking thin lead to Oh my God. That's so ridiculous. I imagine no possession. Visits. Ben Thank you so much for bringing that up because it's it gets to sort of the weirdness of this movie in that those two, these two scenes are bright next to each other a hell Larry stupid seen it which gump inspired. John Don Lemon to write imagine followed by a critical character in the movie. Kind of breaking the fourth wall and being like this is fucking stupid. This is the big breakthrough I have watching the movie last night. And then you know sort of I I was trying to read sections of the book today having a watch the movie freshly. There's there's some weird correlation between.

"I Like I, watch it and I'm like. That's very skilled like it is very impressive. What Tom Hanks is able to pull off here and what he's pulling off as big. It's the same magic trick of just making a character field that much like of Supernatural Child That you can go off into insane territory and accepted bright that he's like your heat at the suspension of disbelief that movie acid yet. But he can do better accents than this. He can play more realistic people than this and it's not his funniest performance and it's not his most emotionally resonant performance and it's not his physically demanding transformer their performance like he's done better work in every area. I think part of it's the combination of all those things and that he had just become like the president of Hollywood is you've jumped the year before he makes us all. I mean. He wins for Philadelphia while they're filming this is that correct? The would make sense certainly the before right. So. Certain. Yeah No no no filming is done right before the Oscar. So but whatever he he finishes filming wins and Oscar. Philadelphia probably is then finished filming Gump wins an Oscar for Philadelphia moves onto fucking apollo thirteen or whatever. You know. Next family friendly crowd-pleasing blockbuster. He's GonNa make toy story probably is getting into the booth story and he's like Oh there's another Oscars I guess I'll show up and win again and then maybe I'll play sully fucking. Bureau. Landed Flight Fifteen, forty, nine on the Hudson. Marceau's. Fifty five there were so many souls. The MOMA MEL of of the he like me where he can't get the word out and then the relief when Jenny says like, no, he's brilliant. Is. It's it's insane. As you said, it's like an incredible incredible piece of acting but also there's a straight line from that to the moment. I find most impressive in sully, which is the moment where they tell him that there were one, hundred, fifty, five survivors..

"Did the fast track version. But I think the version that. Gilliam or sonnenfeld would have made would have not been a major Ostra, play an hosted. The actors do fear. That were wanted for this movie were comedy act like Bill, Murray and Chevy Phase Sean Penn was one of the series actors who they wanted which that money sounds like a fucking disaster. You just imagine hint combining his I stand performance with all the king's men performance, right? Yes. Because a Gilliam directed forrest gump feels like it'd be much closer to the spirit of the novel raigmore more directly. Yes it can satirical. Service Murray playing gump feels like it would be closer to like Carlos Boeckler from. Hattie check like that's how gump reads as like that somewhat menacing idiot but I would argue. I mean when you watch this movie. I I. At least I was doing the thought experiment. What if this movie this exact movie had made thirty million dollars at the box office and was considered like a weird entry from zemeckis right very easy to imagine right it's the exact same movie but it just like it was like, yeah, this didn't connect. It was a little too dark and strange at times a little too goofy and. And then I feel like he would just sort of be like, Oh, well, this movie is very ambitious and interesting much like a lot of Zametica's later flops, right? Yeah. Not, only does that. Situation. Some plausible. If movie had come out in Nineteen, ninety I, think that's what what would have happened I mean it's worth considering if it if it came out and twenty twenty that made this joke, everyone would go jail. Just. But straight yeah, it is worth considering that in one ninety, five, I mean, this is You know it's not just. boomer Nostalgia Nineteen, ninety five is the entire. US. Federal government is run by people who grew up in sixties and seventies rally built. Yes. The whole thing about Bill Clinton the whole made him. So interesting and exciting he is the first boomer president. This is the nineties were can be be ascent of the boomers into positions of power and so this movie. I, mean I think the reason the movie right? The way it did the reason received the way it did is it it hits at exactly the right point. In yes. American. History to have the kind of cultural impact did into read the way that it was because of you if you just. Put It make it a movie that comes in two thousand, even two, thousand, five, certainly post nine eleven, the movie hits. You know people would might read it as totally a a a satire straight up, BUD right. Five years earlier. You can't force him. I think ends up curiosity. You're right it's literally this is the one. It comes out July before it wins the Oscar two, thousand five, it runs at the box office for months and months and months early, ninety five. And Ninety five I'm sorry. But it like it has like nine months there were it is the key movie. In America you know on people's map -solutely from from sort of July to March or April Holly, and then from then on his just pop culture history, you know like I say it's on cable of time. Everyone knows the lines bubba Gump shrimp company is a real restaurant. It's just sort of like everyone's like, yeah. Forrest Gump, the movie The famous movie that we've all seen I mean can you talking about how weird it is that like? You would think to play it for kids summer camp. It's only weird when you're watching the movie because I feel like the movie now I, feel like a backlash against the movie has started to overtake the goodwill in some kind of way I. Feel like in ninety five it was very much the minority opinion of like you know Oh you're so cynical you hate gum and now people like question it a lot more. But I feel like not only was the movie that quickly canonize, but it was canonized away. That's closer to something like wizard of Oz and something might pass the Blanca interest like every kid understands. What this is is constantly parody every single element of it as iconic you can dress like Orascom, you can have someone sit on a bench you can have their be a feather, you can use music. The supporting cast the lines shrimp like just. Everything about this movie was just like in the cloth of culture for years and still is that's.

"Math is one thing is like got a natural kind of predilection for But but the movie translate that into all the weird things like, oh, he's able to assemble the gun faster than anyone else like he's constantly breaking all these records because he's a machine he's our single-minded simple-minded man who who, right they can. Just if you give him directions, he can do them. He has no like on week like he is not burdened by any sort of like inner conflict. So right. So he's a perfect machine of sports a perfect machine of war right like. An like it's all. He's dream of general since time began right? Exactly. That'd be the I mean honestly possibly, the funniest scene in the movie is the drill sergeant being kirk. The opposite of the opposite of full metal jacket but the Marvin Berry hit is a fair one in a way right? Like it gets a little goofy where it's like, Okay Alvis. But then there is that weird sort of salty sweet thing where like he meets these presidents and but then also simancas like constantly putting the audience being like. Remember that American history post war was just fucking presidents getting shot at like for forty years and often murdered like isn't that weird? Like in this way where I feel like people think about the Kennedy assassination, they think about you know being shot like. You know like, would you see it as this chain where like huts twenty the that that's just all woven in and that's like so much of what he's trying to do right like like. When you see this is this big woven thing like it seems ludicrous like like why can't forrest gump just wander through it it it's it's. It's ludicrous and someone movies to be saying that's only someone like forrest gump could experience all that. Income out of it, you know not irreparably scarred right? Sure. Not Not completely neurotic. And you jet Jenny seems to be the counterpoint right sort of journey ignore and looted Dan to these are normal human beings who experienced the things force does and react as normal human beings do to be depressed or to be sad or to make bad decisions. But also they they push back against these things and are sort of punished for them in a way that he is not. Bring. Ring again. Do Click. A hello. WHO's this? I. I up at..

"He doesn't Save Jenny from household of abuse. There isn't that same sort of like deeply knitted relationship from the very beginning Jenny is very much the the little red headed girl from. Fees. The pretty girl he's ever seen. He keeps on running into her again she remains the unattainable object for him, but they aren't as intrinsically high, and that's the biggest biggest fucking difference and graphic as the one said this. Trying to find the quote here, but Simancas was like I, want him to be just a force for good I, want for us to just be a complete innocent that it is as you were saying. This very naive childlike perspective of all these big events in American. Only thing he believes in God, his Mama and Jen he is is what? Him, and so they took everything kind here the writer across depart substantially from the book we flipped the to almost to the making the love story primary and a fantastic adventures secondary. Also, the book was cynical and colder movie and the movie Gump is a completely decent character. Always work is no agenda and no opinion about anything except Jenny his mother and God. Now, the thing that Eric Ross said is. The way he pulled that off was to put all the unsavory elements and the unsympathetic things that forrest gump did interject Jenny becomes the receptacle for everything kind of a rough that goes through. So you end up with one character who is just like a simple ten going through history somehow winning succeeding and making everything around him better and one character who just feels like fucking cursed by the Gods to suffer. And over and over again and force accomplishments are much smaller in the book he has adventures that are lot weirder like him becoming a professional wrestler. Or a stuntman unlike. Raquel. Welch movie. He doesn't meet like seven presidents He isn't a war hero in the same kind of way. Lieutenant. Dan this a guy he just meets in the hospital in recovery not someone he served under not someone he saved publicist friend going back to college on the football team but you know the Bubba gump shrimp company is the end of the book that is. The absolute peak of what forrest gump accomplishes and everything else is much much smaller than that. You don't have the same kind of thing of like at five different points in this guy's life. He became a national talking points until people forgot and then three years later he does another thing and people treated him like a new guy it's be the book ends with. The starts the.

Winning are have one I think so I believe so I don T to do something David suggested forrest gump and I quickly Greg because I have a funny story involving this movie that can get to later I think you you ask for it. I. Yeah I. Didn't just I mean I was just sort of like. You know take your pick of Meka's that was all I remember just being. So Amazon David said to me light wants to do forrest gump and it just felt like not necessarily describe yourself this way but I feel like you are one of the best chroniclers of America in in. So many ways the way you write about current America and what like you know sort of ails us and How we're doing for these cycles, Your Perspective on history the echoes of these things going on forever it just felt like. That that is the person we need to try to untangle this movie because I don't know how to fuck do it. Jamal Buoy from the New York Times this here. Thank you for the kind of words also say I don't know how to fucking do it either. This is my this is a weird freaking movie agreed weird one, but I'll say does Someone of your qualifications in intelligence admitting that you don't have untangle this movie makes me feel less. Tango I'll untangle it for you guys. I feel pretty confident. I feel good. I'm feeling good Let's your story about this movie because I have a similar kind of weird story. The film is forrest Gump forrest gump. It's funny this this movie It's sort of reputation I think at this point is it's like a boomer nostalgia play 'em that you know people born people. Old enough to remember the sixties but not old enough to have experienced the sixties love this movie. But strangely, because when it came out in ninety five I, also feel like older millennials are very familiar with this movie. I. Somehow Remember. Yes. Maybe not seeing this in theaters but I remember seeing a ton as a kid on cable all the time. Yeah. One hundred percent, which is very much part of the movies I saw as kid forrest gump was one of them a movie for the whole family even though it's not. Like almost everyone I, know my age saw this movie with their family a bunch same. Day, they would rent it from blockbuster all the time or to be on TV or whatever. Like ed like you consider watching this whole mood, your family, this movie the begins with Sally Field fucking principal loudly. To get her son into school and you're like Jesus but anyway, Jim Back to you I'm sorry this is actually is a great lead into my story here. So when I was in college for two summers. When I was in college I was a summer camp counselor paid pretty well stayed on campus at UBA and was a Kim Council backlash for this dramatic. If my experience tells me anything talking about summer camp on this show. Go on. Walk around payroll. Countered Camden like the one, you would have gone to griffin a camper legal kids for smart kids. and. So I think it was my first summer as counselor this that I it was a two week cycle free group Campers in the first Friday was like a movie night and me and my buddy who's also a counselor. I think we decided be fun to screen forrest Gump thinking exactly all this movie we were kids. This is like a family movie a bunch of thirteen and fourteen year olds should be able to enjoy us. We put this on me auditorium on like the big. Projection screen and we're watching get to the salad field seen and I'm just like you know we didn't clear any of this with these kids as parents but this should be fine. This is not too bad. We get to the scene where Jenny enforcement her college dorm room, and he he like comes in in her roommate's bath towel and I was just like bragging to get fucking fired this is. Going to get. fired. We've made a terrible mistake. We should not have shown this movie to these kids. What were we thinking? I'd totally forgotten at the time all of this stuff throughout the movie that is not family friendly whatsoever. And You know we've finished the movie the kids wants it and I did I didn't I didn't get fired but one parent did a common to me when they were picking up a kid it was interesting that we showed their children forrest gump interesting put that is that is the last time I saw this movie and that that would have been most twenty or so. But the last time I saw this movie was when I was nine years, I have not seen since I saw one time or it was very much burned into my memory and I had. The experience watching it last night for this episode A. I cannot believe.

Comparison segment on it because I don't want any entire episode relating everything back but the relationship between both of these books, this movie is fascinating. Here's just an immediate point of comparison. Okay. This is the opening line from Winston Groom's forrest Gump novel. Let me say this? Being an idiot is no box of chocolates. that is the line in the book Mama never says anything about it. Other comparison is never made. It's almost the exact opposite of the moral that the movie star Clint and yet a box of chocolates is involved the kept the box everything you need to know you can extrapolate everything else about how this book was adapted into this movie from that like everything that exists in the book exists in that type of form in relation to what we got in the final movie in the movie Mama. WHO's like the? Mayor who has all these like sterling little pearls of wisdom that he carries with him in his back pocket. It's this general philosophy for life. You don't know what you're going to get. You gotta just with the flow in the book. It's him announcing I'm a fucking idiot and my life is difficult. That's what he's saying. Being. Idiot is no box of chocolates and then he goes on to say like what's the exact phrasing here now they say folks supposed to be kind to the afflicted. Let me tell you it ain't always that way even so I got no complaints because I recognized on lead a pretty interesting life. So to speak, that's the entire attitude of the book. This guy who self identifies as a more on is like it's been rough but now that I look back on it sure. Looks through a lot of weird things right? And he speaks with insurance our broadcast, but he speaks with an accent, right? Like the book transliterated his accent like grammatically into text essentially it the book is as if he wrote it, it's not as if he's saying to you that makes sense. So it's just like riddled with weird phrases typos. No properly structured sentences took a clockwork orange, the book, the novel of Orange It's written in this kind of trainspotting Yeah Yes it is like Kor which is that's the other bizarre thing look. Lexus. On it. We got packet the. Fucking Movie Ladies and Gentlemen. Can Equity David Griffin?

This $4.6 Million Tournament Got DDOSD
"Much like the Overwatch League. The call of duty league continued its inaugural season online despite the cove nineteen outbreak. This past weekend marked its first ever playoff matches. We're talking like the biggest event, the biggest prize pool in cody history. On the ultimate driven grounds co look duties delete convert. Dead moment stares you in the face join no one. Rolling isn't. Skipping. Over is easy. is taking. But as things got underway while the some issues, the cod community had to deal with something. They're actually not that unfamiliar with going back to the days of advanced warfare, pro play online de Dos, attacks, and mid match booting of pro players basically because the games were being played on locking hackers would go in Diaz attack and boot Appro player from a live game at the highest level of play out there. This was pretty crazy and in the optic versus Ellie guerrillas it actually got so bad that optic at the sub in a different player because Kenny had been booted multiple times already in the match. Yeah. They all I, it looks like Kenny no longer in the in the server. So something happened there. So they're trying to do this four versus five right now. When did he try? It's been about over a minute and as you might imagine, the pro community was pissed obviously the competitive integrity of the Games are being called into question and pros were asking for things like postponing the event or boycotting entirely a really long time ago in a land when dinosaur a whirlwind when dinosaurs roamed the earth advanced warfare was a game and in that, there was an online lead and hitting people off line was an issue so much. So to the point where the league had to be restarted because it was impossible to avoid everyone's getting hit off. Again, and this has become an issue to the point where now it's impacting four million dollar tournament. This tournament has more than four million dollar prize by far the biggest payout in the history of call of duty. So for me, those frustrated tweets are seeing while they kind of make sense at minimum from twitter reports alone at least five players had this problem literal Diaz attacks in the middle of the playoffs. Now, luckily, for optic, the example I showed above didn't cost them the match but many players have speculated if they were playing against any team other than the lonely L. A. Guerrillas. It could have been a different story, fig it close it out here saucer PGA. Thanks saint flasks man he's been spotted broth and TJ. Trading there is big telezapper optic they're gonNA, get this series win. So you're activision blizzard you're putting the situation in the middle of the biggest tournament of all time in your brand new league in the middle of a global pandemic. What are you doing? Well, they're quick fix actually ended up being to start the matches off walk that way these attackers couldn't get to the players live many players also started to scramble their Ip addresses to make it even more difficult. So they made that change and everything was fine. Until it was on. August twenty first, the third day of playoff competition fans started to notice that scores were updating on the coal duty League playoff website before the matches had actually started on St keep in mind, I? Didn't tell anybody they were making this change. So as far as fans were concerned, these matches were being played lot. So when the Chicago Huntsman were playing the New York subway liners and fans could see the results of the first two maps before the game even started onstream people were a little confused and it's obviously awkward. If you're a fan right, you don't just want to. See The score you WanNa see the game and it gets even more awkward when you gambling to the mix this change was made pretty quickly. They didn't exactly have time to let Vegas now. So for a short while you could bet on a game while already knowing the results of the first babs, what's more is that some of the players being targeted by the DOS attacks. In the first place suggested that those might also be related to betty. You see the League was hosting a special perfect bracket challenge that awarded a hundred thousand dollars to anybody that had a perfect bracket all the way through the play offs similar to what you know. They do with March madness in college basketball, the bracket challenge coupled with the fact that all these attacks were. Happening on hard point, a type of match where in the rules, it's very difficult to replay them make this all very sketchy fear a hacker playing this bracket challenge and you want to make your hundred thousand dollars you go and you target your Diaz attacks towards hard point. So you can actually influence the results of those matches, its one, hundred, Fifty, seven points they passed that threshold. To basically this is to you know Kinda kind of. Levy in issues of it happens like the start of the game is really early in a game and you know somebody's played without unfortunately in this particular circumstance, it happens. Happens a bit deeper but yeah, Joe it sucks there's no way around that. No Way to hide from that few. Guys right now like I said off the top booting and Diaz attacks have been a problem multiple times in the history of cod online pro. So. It's baffling to me that this is even allowed to happen in the first place now, betting controversies and Diaz attacks. Aside, this weekend of coal beauty was miraculously able to survive the controversies time Sunday rolled around and teams were competing for their slot in next weekend's talk for matches. Fans were fucking pumped for some call of duty action and a lot of that has to do with Sunday's match that pitted the new off the gaming against the Chicago hunts, which aside from being a highly anticipated series with to good teams have the added drama of pitting obviously the old face of objects gump against an organization that is in many ways shell of its former self and what ensued was a five match bloodbath that peaked at more than a hundred and fifty thousand viewers on Youtube that some people are calling one of the best matches in call of duty history?

Maria Town: Disability Rights Are LGBTQ+ Rights
"Disability looks like so many things right, and in fact over one third of the Lgbtq community, house disability, so if you don't have one, absolutely have a friend or loved one does, and you'll hear Maria. Today disability is not a sign of weakness is a sign of strength, resilience and survival. So, let's get to it. This is Maria town. Know preparing for this interview I was thinking about all the different aspects of queer life, or or should I say my queer life because I was specifically thinking about how not accessible they are yeah, and one of the biggest and most visible examples I think is pride, fried celebrations, and I'm just curious about what is in your experience with pride. Pride is interesting. The idea of walking in a parade is very exclusive for a lot of people. There is always biased towards being able to physically show up and watch or debate in a parade that I think our experience with Corona virus may change I hope that various pride committees and organizations across the country are actually thinking about virtual engagement in subsequent years, and how that can be a complement to in-person engagements, but there's all of the events that surround pride typically in June, that often revolve around alcohol and substance abuse in tree, then is a disability having pride so closely tied to alcohol companies creates a lack of access for a lot of people in. In Our community I've never thought about that is alcoholism is classified as disability to be specific it's it's addiction in treatment, so if you are actively experiencing alcoholism and not seeking treatment than it wouldn't fall into disability, you know that's what the law says I. Think we can look at addiction more broadly as as a disability. Ask something that does impact someone's activities of daily living in their ability to accomplish them. You know for someone who is seeking treatment for addiction. They are entitled to reasonable accommodations in their job. If they need a flexible work schedule, so they can go to a meeting. All of those fit under the umbrella of reasonable accommodations the ADA. Issue that I wish more people in the community understood and were open about new sort of diction falls within the ADA, the American disability act or I guess If you're currently in treatment, right I, think people in the queer community knew so many people in treatment. Is that a Bra Lee known thing that you are legally able to ask you like work for time off to go to meetings and stuff so I don't think it is I think that most people's understanding of disability is fairly narrow, and that's very unfortunate the disability. Disability. Community is huge. It's extremely diverse and I think most people when they think of disability, even people within the community. If they haven't had an opportunity to really get to know the disability rights community, maybe think about disability in terms of someone who uses a wheelchair or someone who is blind, but in fact disability covers. You know people who have cancer people who have AIDS HIV. It's a really really broad category. In fact, so broad that people with disabilities are the largest minority group in the United States, and there are one billion. Billion people with disabilities around the world, those numbers are crazy especially, since on on this podcast, we talk about representation all the time, mainly for Queer people in the media, but we think about representation for those at disabilities, if the numbers are so small, if as you said, it is the largest minority group on even with representations right like we are so as a community, so accustomed to seeing disabled characters, being played by non disabled actors, like what's the easiest way to win an Oscar have able bodied person play somebody with a disability. Disability right like Daniel. Day Lewis in my left foot. Shirley's there on in Monster Forrest gump all Oscar winners, all non-disabled people playing people with disabilities I think when we talk about representation, it can't just be like disabled characters. It needs to be disabled riders writing the stories that needs to be production, the whole kit and caboodle,
How to Sell to Crack Into All the Government Spending
"I hope found this company called gump spin we help companies Celta government. We actually help. Government DO BUSINESS WITH COMPANIES. We kinda work on both sides of the street. I started my career in the DC area actually started my career as a civilian working for the navy so actually helped government process. Actually something unique. I actually helped sell F. Eighteen fighter jets two. Us Navy into some international Countries at that point really grew that experiencing to last twenty five years really helping again companies either. Sell the government or helping the governor of process extreme line Spent most of my career and currently of a suitable Proto virus time. You know we have been exploding. It certainly very hot topic while the money. The government's putting into spending by the only the only illumination spending more money here currently so we really the knicks just exploding less of a week. So what does government spend? Do exactly sure so a governor. We wish started many years ago. Ten years ago I had a prior company. We saw with the laptops. The police cars are sold to the government that was my most recent gates selling directly to the government and during that time for a of times you can sell the government. Sometimes the process doesn't make sense right. You're like why did he do man what happened but we found out. It's like the old saying years ago. Follow the money right and so what we started do. At the end of that company we started to gather the purchase orders from government agencies. Work with what we found as we started to gather that for our own company it was super insightful. So for example. Hey if you saw company work with a company nine. A few solid agency weren't company for nine straight year nine or ten straight years. The chances you're gonNA come in and displace them is really small. If you saw an agency use a new vendor every two years of a much better shot at that contract right makes total sense but we as outsiders. We don't know that when we were doing business so reason I'll tell you that would go spend started to do many many years ago. Is We gather all the purchase orders from government agencies? We GO GOVERNMENT TO EIGHT GOVERNMENT AGENCY GOVERNMENT AGENCY FEDERAL STATE LOCAL. Gather all their purchase orders. And we put in this online database or folks can query just like Google. You sell widgets you can go online. It's it's amazing you can see. Every government agency buys a widget. You could see who they're buying from and what they pay. It is eating in the world of kind of government sales. So that's where we started. We blossomed into a variety of things. But that's the core of what Gulf spend does super unique patented by US. Just amazing ride last several years at. And how do you process all those purchase orders and what form do you? GimMe GonNa pdf format or you can imagine. It's all over the map rights and there's ninety thousand plus government agencies. I would say like I'm in a room with people. Say Write Down Your name address. Telephone number social security number. You know some of the information if I asked ten people do what they all do it differently right at all someone ready to on the line somewhat stacking someone put their own over the Franchisee. Someone's issues dashes someone as a commander with ninety thousand government agencies. They all do it completely different. So one of the things that makes us turn and burn a proprietary piece of software. We get the foul from government agencies. They come in every format you name it from Seattle electronically try to obviously get digital. And so we have a piece of software similar to ingest that information it's able to Parse it out and then we put it up in our database with make aquarium on about twenty four hours. So it's it's a huge set of data. It's about you folks a sense. It's about two hundred fifty times the size of Wikipedia. So it's a normal database but that's the thing that makes churning Burns's piece of software in about ten years so I see from your history. You sold the company to lexis-nexis this sounds a lot like what Lexis nexis does for lawyers through. It's really interesting. That was some of the impotence of this solution so we were again. We were at the time selling the public safety agencies again. We have this mostly substance. They have a laptop car life. A ten point fifteen years ago. That was very very unique so we help that marketing. Kinda grow right prior to that kind of singing. Hey how does this data and make it more scalable? How DO WE HELP? More people use it because we were we kind of use it in our own functioning of our company. That's exactly what we're looking at the net lexus. Next model how they use the data and kind of use that insurance where the government market so very very announce
Don Tamaki on Stop Repeating History
"Is the background? And the purpose and the goal of the Stop Repeating history campaign that you are a Parv well as the listeners know in one thousand nine hundred eighty two almost one hundred twenty thousand Americans of Japanese ancestry were removed on the say so of the government alone and put in in American style concentration camps three individuals charged the challenge government in that process. Read Komatsu Gordon Arabiya. She and Menu Suey. And those cases were heard in nineteen forty three and forty four and the Supreme Court to their surprise ruled against them and those cases stood for almost thirty seven years for the proposition that without trial without evidence entire racial group. Lose your freedom. Their property and be imprisoned indefinitely by accident thirty seven years later in the nineteen eighties of secret intelligence reports from the army the navy the FBI were found. They surfaced all of which admitted japanese-americans Americans oppose no threat in he committed no wrong and Department of Justice lawyers urging their higher ups basically to tell the truth and not lied to the US Supreme Court and on that basis. We assembled hey legal team to represent all three lead against I was on the legal team representing Redcar. Matsu and based on that evidence of misconduct really abusive power lies in order to manipulate. The of those cases of Fred Karma sues a criminal conviction for Divine. The military orders were overturned and In separate actions the convictions of coordinator beyond Xinmin Yasui and the legal team basically educated the public about what happened when trump announced his travel ban in January twenty. Seventeen we reconvene these legal teams In order to to work with the quarterbacks who center in Seattle and the law firm of Aken Gump to represent the adult children of Fred. Komatsu Corden here beyond Menu. Sui Basically make brief was to remind the court that When they when the court stood down and did not ask questions and accepted the government's claim that doing this Drastic separation civil liberties made the nation safer. It was a civil liberties disaster. So we filed amicus brief Basically to urge the court to examine whether the travel ban Really made the nation safer or in fact was merely fulfillment by trump campaign. Promise that he made repeatedly on the campaign trail down the borders to Muslims and American families of entering the country. Saturday in two thousand eighteen. The court has upheld the travel ban. Five four but we had launched a public education campaign called stop repeating history in order to also inform the public. What had happened and that it ought not to be repeated so I love to hear what your thought is in your whole team. Start when you saw. The travel ban announced his clearly. You being intimately involved in the overturning of the Coronado to indicated by Ashi end the convictions node. The history in intimately well. What kind of parallels did you see that in your mind in your team's mind Signaled the fact that the travel ban against Muslims and a lot of refugees as well is literally in your organization's word repeating history. We were enormously disappointed and angered by. The court's decision was cited by five to four majority. So there was a divided and we thought it was an opportunity for the court to once and for all reverse in truth. Komatsu versus the United States. Judge Chief Justice Roberts did provide lip service have met decision basically saying the core mottes who was wrong. The day was decided but in the same breath join the majority polling the travel ban which in our mind reinforced the worst and most dangerous aspects of Karma swoop versus the United States which was when the executive branch the president invokes. National Security. Courts will stand down. They'll abdicate their traditional constitutional role of being a check and balance on the presidency. And the problem with that is when you have an executive branch which is gone rogue and would certainly happened in nineteen forty two and it's happening now. It opens the door for tremendous abuse of power in the lesson of monsoon. Is that when there is no check and balance The temptation for political leaders to Fabricate facts to misrepresent Epa evidence in order to manipulate the outcome of in this case Major Supreme Court cases that temptation becomes irresistible and the founders of this country certainly understood that every high school civics students knows that we have three branches of government. We have executive branch the Presidency the legislative branch. Which is Congress and the judiciary the cords? Each are coequal each. You're supposed to be a check and balance on the other and the genius of the system was it was really designed to thwart the rise of kings in tyrants and when those systems fail as they did for Japanese Americans. This is how dictators get started. You have in this case of President. Exercising unfettered power and the consequences are severe. You have children being separated from their parents. You have a president who targets minorities whether they be immigrants muslim-serb refugees and the latest attacks are on Asian American specifically Chinese Americans by labeling a global pandemic as a quote Chinese virus and institutions are supposed to be check and balance on that kind of abuse and we see history repeating itself all over again. I want to dive in a little bit. Into the point you made about Fabricating Facts to litigate in front of Supreme Court which is pretty mind boggling for everyday citizens to even contemplate you know we generally hold the Supreme Court to pretty high esteem is the highest core of the land is the final. I call or final decider on a lot of highly controversial disputed issues but to your point people or government in this case in particular actually lied to the Supreme Court to get their position one. And you have a lot of experience with that in the overturning of the quartermaster case. I think that is essentially. What you your team discovered that lets you even the possibility that you could overturn the Supreme Court case which again too many people's minds that is the final decision right when the Supreme Court says something whether you decide whether you agree with it or not it is done but of course they are edge cases and exceptions to that. Could you tell us about? Maybe your experience overturning. The Komatsu case will was the discovery of that. Were the lies that were discovered that. Lets you guys even being able to do this? And then of course tying to what we are experiencing right now whether it's the Muslim ban or potentially other offer things can happen in the future. While thirty seven years after the fact the Supreme Court cases decided Komatsu here she knew. Sui In nineteen forty three and forty four thirty seven years after that secret intelligence reports were discovered by accident by researchers Peter Irons and Heiko Yoshinaga hurt sick. Which really all that. The government in order to manipulate the outcome of these landmark Supreme Court cases fabricated evidence and even burn them and despite the protestations of Department of Justice official soon attorneys who urged their superiors that they ought not to be lying to the Supreme Court to clarify. We did not over earned the decision. What happened was basically Before nearby she in ministry five the orders for this bass removal. They were charged and convicted with Criminal violations and Suffered criminal penalties and we reopen these cases. A writ of error was the only device reopen these ancient cases. That would've otherwise been time. Barred by this limitation isn't criminal writ calls rhetoric quorum notice which allows litigation to reopen their case to clear their name and doesn't give them any money as and give back the years that they lost. They can remove their criminal. Convictions we won on those. The government appealed their loss and then they withdrew their appeal in our system. Only the loser can appeal not the winner and so the the withdrawal of the appeal was a very strategic. Move to keep it out of the. Us Supreme Court And only the court supreme court can reverse itself now when the trump versus quiet case came up in twenty eighteen. That was an opportunity for the court squarely. Look at the facts Komatsu because there were very similar to the travel ban and actually reverse it reverse that case and sadly the court didn't take that

I'm drew PRUITT and each week. My team and I bring on a new guest who we think can help you improve your brain health feel better and most importantly live more. This week's guest is Kamal. Ravi Gump Kamal is the author of love. Yourself like your life depends on it. He's meditated with monks in Himalayas. We got to hear about that served as a army. Infantry soldier and Co founded several companies and venture capital firm in Silicon Valley. Come all. I've been looking forward to this interview. Thanks for coming on the PODCAST. Thanks for having me man. I kick off with a quote that I came across years ago and I just thought perfect when I was giving your book by Gideon Gideon while Harper Winer. Yeah When he had mentioned you and then another mutual friend mentioned it and I started flipping through the book. I thought of this quote by CS Lewis. Success hardships prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary life interesting. That's going and while he was a wise man he was a wise man so I want to kick it off by starting from the beginning. You Open Up Your Book and you talk about in two thousand eleven. The company that you spent three years of your life building and all of your money went under set the stage for us at the beginning. Okay so the the genus. This book is actually. This is not a book. Set out to write. You know that people like I'm going to write this book. This was never a book to write. It came out of an experience. That was very transformative for me where I've been in Silicon Valley building startups building companies at Dunwell and the last company. I was building At self-funded if over three and a half years and then took on funding. Because I'd run out of money you know. Billing tech companies not cheap right for for years and And the whole thing blew up and I lost everything you know which in hindsight you you remember. I remember now. Look Ninety something percent star tech startups fail but when is yours and all your money you ego your personality is self worth all of us wrapped up in it. I I it. Blew up on with it and and I was in a really dark place and you know the other things happening in life to at the time it was almost like we had like Salami. I'll just happened at the same time and I was in a very dark place in one night. I just was like okay. I can't do this anymore. I gotta get out of this place or die trying. I cannot be here and and it was like this this intense moment of like saying. I can't do this anymore. Can't be here anymore in this place. This does this darkness depression. Whatever you WANNA call it and I walked over to my journal and my on my desk and I wrote down something to myself I and I you know you should write notes to myself but this this time. Something from somewhere deep I wrote a vow to myself and it was a vow Listen the book You know I'm GonNa Paraphrase but it was avowed alum myself and I don't know where that came from. I wasn't sitting on thinking you know what I need. Another makeup news failed. I need to love myself that I wasn't thinking that at all. I don't know whether we came from like somewhere. Deep Right. It was like one of those pure moments of life. We just come through something deep. I did recognize that. And it was a vow as a full on commitment to myself. And so I'm a big believer keeping your commitments that you made from the heart and this was a pure from the heart to myself and so I had to keep it except I didn't know how and said okay. I'm GonNa work on this. I started because I nothing else to do. My Company of failed. I lost everything of living credit cards and I was trying to figure out what to do next and so I just started like trying things in my head because that's the only thing I control the only control I really had was if I was if I was not happy verbs in my mind the only control ahead was will work on my mind as I started. Just do things to my mind and started trying things and I found. Things are starting to make me shift to make me feel better. And if they worked I went deeper if it stopped working through. I didn't care all I wanted was one result was to get out of this place and so avoid by following that almost like a decision tree of things that are working out working and going deeper deeper. I came up with like a simple practice doing every day and I was just getting better and better. Better my take a better in my life started getting better and this didn't take long. It took weeks if most right and it was it was. I'd never ever knew that was possible to go from that kind of darkness to like almost like light. And so you know it's like when you discover something in life that's really transformative. The next thing. Is you become like newly converted your friends. Who are going through stuff. I would tell them like Lara Dude. Like don't worry. I figured out here I would write little things because while I'll be building companies in Silicon Valley. I'd also been training myself to write literary fiction. I wanted to be write novels right. So I've done the ten thousand hours. I knew how to write someone. Just right up little things and sent to them like little almost a couple of word a couple of pages worth like. Here's what I did. Here's what I went through here. Do this right. I would do this for friends and because it gets tiring having to explain again again because people ask questions adding them again. It gets here. Let me just write it that I could share the same people. I mean different people and it started it worked for them because it's like a simple simple stuff. There's nothing complicated. Have to stand on your head and scratch your. You know like do anything to say. Just little stuff you're doing inside your head beer. And they had all the time any day she'll things that when and we'll get to all that and we'll break it all down but foundational things. That seem so simple that we often overlook. Well look ultimately. If you look at anything in life you look at Art. You look at writing. You look at Physics math anything. Simplicity's where it's all the if the closer to break it down to the basics the very very fundamental basics and simplicity is transformation happens you know especially for us as human beings. We don't need to know complicated stuff. We will not practice it. We need simple stuff that we can do consistently and I was talking with every time. I ritual you know talking yesterday and like was the Diet Best Diet I think the best I can keep consistently was the best fitness program. The one that you can keep consistently you know not the one that you do once a month you know and same thing with the mind. What is the best way for mindset the simplest most effective that you can do consistently and I was in a place where all I wanted was results? I didn't care about theory. I didn't care about Does it make me feel half better. I just wanted to get out over was right so I wanNA come back to your story because a company failing isn't event right and even the word failure is our story on it like you wanted anyway. I was totally in that story right. You're in that story. So you talked about this valley that you made to love yourself but let's go back and set the stage a little better. Because I think that a lot of listeners our podcast might be able to identify it. Identify with it. So what were you doing? You had a situation. You had an intended outcome. It didn't work out. It wasn't what you wanted. But what was the story that you created around it? And where were you at that time that you were doing the opposite of loving yourself while? I was a typical Entrepreneur story in the sense. Like look I didn't take even a Sunday off over three and a half years I think no near the end. My team convinced mutate. Start taking Sunday's off right. I was so obsessed. I was going to pull this off. My entire sense of self was wrapped up. All my money was wrapped up in it and it was coming close to be successful. So my ego was wrapped up in it I WANNA blew up. You know I I took it personally. You know which which is normal. But it's also kind of silly because I gave it my all. You know it's not like a didn't work my butt off you know But it was like the whole story of failure and also I was just. I was worn out. I was sick There are other things happening my life that would result just like a cascade effect of just being bottom and one of the things. I tell people as like look. Don't cut got caught up in my story in a it's a human thing hitting bottom is hitting bottom. People know what that is. You can be living in a in a in a Bedouin. Tent in the middle of the desert understand. What like feeling bad is like we're paying bottom doesn't mean that you have to have built a company to hit bottom should universal humane human. The human you know fear love pain joy these things these are all fundamental human constructs right so and that are all relative to your circumstances just like you said you don't have to be a founder now could be trying to do something for your kid's school well. You could have anything life. A BREAK-UP HAPPEN YAM breakup. Great for gave making your head bottom tastic. I'm poster child for those you know like I it's it's a very human thing but also rising is also very human
The 2020 Virus Crash, the world is shutting down, keep healthy, cheer up, we will beat this
"Lots of change of course since the last time you were with me on the show as after news for you wonder what will make you very happy. United. I know. You don't fly united but if you were to fly again united as asked cabin crew to controlling to dimming windows of the liner essentially say allow the passengers do whatever they want these goal. I mean I understand why they dim them at certain points of a flight on mass. So the whole cabinet atmosphere changes especially when it's supposed to be time to to sleep what? I get frustrated by than when they're locked that's what management that it has to do not lock the system. Essentially I wonder if they're able to restrict the DIM nece. So if you say you can. They're unlocked but they can't be fully open which I would kind of understand. That would certainly a piece people like me. But that's interesting that they've had such volume of feedback that they've made that change exactly or they just listened to layovers. That's that's more likely exactly the second news I hinted at it in the intro did about you is that. Berlin seems to be happening actually happening because thunder as actually scheduled flights on October thirty first. Which is the opening. Apparently the soft opening date for a full opening November eighth. It's pretty unbelievable. You set yourself that you were not believing and I wasn't believing it either but it seems stupid will open I. I don't know why it is changed times. It's interesting. There is a third party setting a date for their moving as opposed to the airport authority or anybody on behalf of the airport saying this is going to be the open day. It's it's an airline saying this is when we're going to shift and it's all their operation right. It's not it's not just a test. It's this is when we're GONNA start flying out of that airport and remember when we did both of the airports of berlin-tegel and Schoenfeld lift as it doesn't fly there. They send eurowings. I mean does Fi of course but I'm wondering now if we will actually have proper operations as Frankfurt in they don't they don't really so far so I I still cannot believe it. I mean I don't watch. I just can't believe that he's going to happen. And you know we running Joe too was was going to arrive. I Will Italia Fail I. It seems that they will never fail. Will the Max Awry? I A berliner. After these two are still in contention the Mexico to arrive before Berlin. I duNNo. It's very because with strange times. We'RE LIVING. I don't lie about answer window. So there on office and depends on Crete where you sit and Jeez. I want to give up to Andrew. Curran is a writer for a site that we both read quite often called simple flying and so quoted us like mentioned us which is very nice. Exactly that okay. Because we were saying like who's going to be I you know the Max or and well. He said that we did. Put our money onto Max coming. I was still have a shot of that Andrew. You're basing northern New South Wales in Australia. I I'll show her friends will maybe having a strap. Is it coming up at some point this year? Maybe maybe so into you will have it. His favourite airline is a Singapore Airlines. Here you have very taste I was gonNA say fair enough. I'm just wondering what's Your airport. Because you say northern New South Wales Brisbane is probably close to you. But that's already Queensland believe so which one is it Andrew? Just reach out to us and thank you for for listening. And since I'm on simple flying they also have a podcast. It's a very cool podcast as well. Everybody's doing podcasts Alex. We're we're the okay boomers podcast now because we're like the og in like everybody does podcast. It's very close. The I think they started like early. Feb they also have like these kinds of thirty minutes once a week. Type of Schedule which is really cool for those who don't want to listen to US venture for two hours every odd weeks that we we. Do we do this? So simple flying. You can find it on apple podcasts and everywhere and this is Super Cool Bravo guys. Congratulations more the merrier. Since we're talking about okay boomer of Aggie podcasts. Ourselves to reviews I on apple podcasts. Five stars thank you. The title is where has this? Been all my life from BIG CASTS. Eleven from the. Us These guys are awesome. Content is always amazing. Well thank you so much. They really open up the world to people through their travels. I'm not traveling and personal experiences. I love their personalities. Spot guests is great for any AV geeks such as myself or someone who loves travel. Thank you so much and the second one is from already in MS ready in MSP. Of course Minneapolis which we now covered as you heard. Alex great details on Global Airlines Five Stars Great Show. I always enjoy your shows and look forward to the next one is interesting to hear where you have been and the airlines. You flown on question receive people. I love it that people use reviews. Us question looking at booking a trip to Rome on American Airlines with miles and seem to be able to get much better rate if I had to stop in either Madrid on you barrier or London. Nba would you recommend this? And if so which city in our line? Well Man Rudy going to Rome today not sure. I don't think that here experience. If you quite what you hoped it would be the. What would you do for when if all this stops because Italy for those? Who Don't keep track of isn't a full lockdown. So I mean I know that Ryan ourselves fly Suzanne set from Rome but besides that I think no one flies there. Would you if you weren't? Us would you fly direct with a? Would you prefer a barrier via Madrid? I know our love for Narnia and or we e throw with. I don't know the long haul product. I don't really know the shorthaul product either so I don't know but between the two I would still go a in premium an above but be a in economy. Yeah and if you really want to stop so meaning if as out of the question be. I think it's still a better choice in because you will not be changing terminal in Saudi throw. You'll be fine. Yeah passing so I. I know some people might disagree. But and it's not that we don't pay you better. I think the whole product I've done because I've done to Madrid three forty I think. Yeah it's okay. There's ochre like looking at each other as the be a business for instance but it's it's okay. I think still better. So how's your flu Alex? Well just waiting for the inevitable. I can't do this all any of us can do anything. Yeah exactly it's it's so strange man. Up China Eastern has introduced a new coronavirus glass. Oh on top of visas. Glass preemies coronavirus. The last three row after starboard side off their aircraft will be reserved for those who show potential signs of sickness. Now it's not called the coronavirus. Plus that's me actually making that up but they are actually segregating a bit of the aircraft for people that might have signs of sickness. I I don't know how it works but yeah people that develop the symptoms during the flight. Surely you shouldn't be traveling if you already have this and maybe an epidemiologist would be able to tell us if this is complete waste of time it feels like a complete waste of time. Yeah I said in my very long intro in the previous episode I'm sorry guys it was thirty minutes of renting that Yeah you should be flying if you if you're sick even James Von for crying out loud is my God. I'm like I'm so unhappy about that. That was you. Were not traveling. At least seeing James Bond like a month would have been called but no we don't even get get oil. You can't go. I mean people are not supposed to the movie theater anyway. That's what we're doing right now. Alex Social Distance. What exactly I don't know man. I I think I have a lot less apocalyptic view than this or more A. There's very little I can do about it. That's true however I think that's that's very true. I'm being mindful as not being panicky and I. I see people being panicky. I think that I mean we'll come to that. Actually know what planes it becoming the safest place for social distancing because they're at and the prices are dropping some of the. I mean I think what we see on. Social media is the extreme cases where there's four people on a flight to wherever it may be but the data is now emerging to that showing that these these flights are tanking. And you know now. These reports are coming out. That airlines are running virgin. Nba running empty flights. Just to keep the slots alive gump to that. Yeah Yeah it's not. I mean I think it was of all of the industries that could suffer the most initially. Who knows what the future holds travel and particularly airlines. We're going to be the ones that got hit
How to Tell When It's Time to Splurge
"In our day jobs. We get to help folks make financial decisions and a lot. The top people equate that to like how save more build wealth. How do this thing but we talk about all the time? One of our favorite things to do is to be that voice reason that tells tells people when they can take their foot off the pedal where they can actually enjoy some of the fruits of their labor. We just did a show. That's always were to the show ideas. Come from what we just on that show. We're I I was very self confessional about the fact that I'm no longer consider myself a tight. What now if you were attending the livestream I still have a lot of tightwad tendencies? I just can't get those out of my system but it is one of those things where I love it when we talked about this in pre show planning we are now that you unleashed windy. We tell clients that they could actually spend. When do we tell people we're going to be able to that? Ought to be a show. When do we actually get to live like no one else? We hear these things. You're saving saving saving but Wendy. When do you start to put that needle over to? It's okay and give yourself permission. Because that's the biggest thing one of the favourite parts of being financial advisor. Here's the negative. You have to tell people. They're spending too much but there is a huge positive. Actually for a lot of our clients is that they've been so good at accumulating assets. They actually have a hard time. Tom Breaking the habit of building that we tell them. It's okay to start consuming contrite and I love it when we get to break that point to them I think one of the common misnomers that people have is that oh well that happens at retirement or that happens at the financial independence. Were actually going to talk to you today. About not only. Does it happen there. But they're actually times throughout your accumulation accumulation journey throughout your building journey. Where you can give yourself the freedom even if you're young even if you're early on even if you're in the beginning stages where it's okay to spin so long asks you're doing the things you're supposed to do so let's jump right into these and I was so excited about this slide? And here's the first slide is is foosteps are followed by the way. Here's what I think is awesome. I'd like to tell you my entire life is very. I can't say Mr Magoo because I just gotten to be so old forrest gump might very well become. It's kind of getting everyone recognize but I do feel like I m the accidental success story on most things and once again I've stumbled into something awesome is that we've been talking about for years. Financial Order of operations. I mean it is one of the if I call it money guy won a one. You want to understand financial order of operations. One of our. I came here it was youtube or podcast world but money got family members said we love the foosteps house. Like Oh oh my gosh. This is one step closer today Grohl because it is because when I do all this stuff completely by accident I'm like this means that Dave Grohl on are meant to be best friends. Ah I mean it really is a son that we're supposed to thunder Dave. If you're listening we'd love to have you on the show. So let's talk about this because I do WanNa talk about well. Financial Order of operations. This is one of those things and we're going to go much deeper in this. I've got some things in the works even late last night I was working on some ideas with his financial order of operations and I wanted to kind of go through this rather quickly and we know that we have other resources in the past that people can look into but this is when we talk about financial order of operations. But let's go through these pretty quickly and science sign number. One is not that you've completed it but that you are following the steps correctly and so in order to know if you're following the steps correctly you have to actually know what the steps are so step number one of the money orders. Operations is the deductibles covered You WanNa make sure that you have that money set aside that can get you out of the ditch if things things are going haywire you at least have enough to cover health insurance deductibles auto deductibles homeowners deductibles whatever's required. If there were a catastrophic event you have it there to get you out of the pitch this is where you know most people we know the stats. I'M GONNA cover it in a minute. Most people can't come up with a thousand dollars. So you're right. This is just to keep you from the danger. He's home. You have a really yarn poppin bottles on number one. This is just like I said to keep this thing from running aground and remember because I don't think I set up the the the financial order of operations. What makes this so foundational? Is that just like we talk about time. We think a lot of finances very math. Based I mean matter of fact people get onto onto they say no behavior behavior. Well Yeah we get the behavior but if you're not taking if you're neglecting the maths or you are doing this thing all wrong and that's why we just spoke. Oh could a group of structural engineers. We got hard to come up and talk about that. In the first thing we did was we showed him a math equation. That had exponents in it. It had parentheses it had multiplication tables had division had some subtraction and addition and we ask them we said how in the world did you guys know how to do this and and they all were able to say you know I was ordered. Operation is us which was an always. Screw this up but it's like please excuse my dear aunt sally you nailed it see. That's the first time I've ever heard you get it right so but it's the same thing so I wanted to give the context so that everybody understood. Why is this so powerful finances finances is the same as the way you do order of operations with math? You need to do it in the right order so you actually make your system as efficient as
Keith Recker on Color as Narrative
"Guest in the studio is Keith. wrecker who is the author of a new book true colors world masters of natural dyes and Pigments Heike. Hey how are you both pretty good Keith how did you get into color. I have to say it's been a long and winding road I come come from a background of poetry and literature and of course you know when you have that background you have to do something and I ended up having to separate careers. Maybe three three one and big retail as director of home furnishings at Saks fifth avenue gump San Francisco and Bloomingdales Direct Response and another career nonprofit as head of aid artisans As founder of the hand Eye Fund and hand eye magazine and currently as pro bono creative director of the international folk art market based Down Santa Fe and my third career has been in Trenton color forecasting with Panton. WGN A little bit with Stylus of really trying to inject a sense of adventure creativity relevance to their client base. Now when we did our episode where we interviewed Donna. Karen that was was She had part of the international folk art market in the urban store and and we were surrounded by products from that market But she didn't really talk about the interview. Can you tell us a little bit about the international folk art market. Yeah absolutely you were surrounded In the urban zone holiday market by I think it was twenty nine different artists from all over the world mostly textiles in that In that collection and the things ranged from the most amazing handspun Kunia hand-knit by artisans in Argentina And the group. That does these. Things is part of have a biosphere management program in the high dry plains of Argentina where Kunia are an essential part and the Kunas harvested the incan way where the village surrounds the Vicuna. So that there's no sense of panic. They slowly move in until the animals can be sheared It's a really touching story so you have. You were surrounded founded by twenty-five stories with that kind of depth and historic resonance And the folk art market is an annual event in Santa Fe. Happens every July. We bring together between one hundred sixty and one hundred eighty artists from all over the world fifty plus countries and they're bringing the best of what they make from a traditional point of view view sometimes from a personally adventuresome creative point of view sometimes from recycled and cutting edge social point of view. It's a real mix of creativity city that from our us-based experiences seems very out of the mainstream and therefore terribly exciting and motivating they must get a lot of just going to that and and meeting each other and seeing what they all do all around the world you that that must be just such experienced for an artisan who works in the community services that do the same thing and then meeting artisans who do wildly different things from other parts of the global. You've already understood the thing that the artists themselves I liked the best about it. They love exchanging topics with each other. Whether it's how to whether it's Oh my God you should try this. Sometimes they get together and collaborate after the market so somebody shares of an all white Chikan embroidery piece from Lucknow and they send handed off to one of their new friends to be dipped in indigo to be Bandini tie-dyed to to be transformed into something subtly and beautifully different so the exchanges which is really the magic plus the sales a lot of folks walk away from the market with a years worth of income in their pockets based on a twenty two hour event. We sell a around three three point. One two three point. Four million dollars worth of product in twenty one hours and all. The skit paid out Two days later so in five days you go from setup to pay out and reviewed archie. It's an amazing operation. It sounds like a really tight knit community than really so. Is it hard hard to join that community or WHO's finding new artisans for that. It's a very tightly jury. Joe Artists from all around the world apply online pictures and text and their two juries. There's a group of academics from museums around the world. Mostly around the. US who look at it from the point of view is of is this this really rooted in a cultural assets right that we recognize that there's techniques color languages languages motif. Is it routed somehow in community entity heritage and then the second group answers the question. Is this gonNA connect with the market. Does it represent a product. Does it represent a look. Does it represent a price is point and of course is it super beautiful. I mean that's that's the first question that we have to answer before we even proceed to the further analysis so those two groups are responsible. Secure eating something. That really is unique in the world. There's nothing like in the entire world so between that and what you're describing in your the book about being in touch with all these natural colors ways of getting color from the earth from plants a lot of this is about being in touch with what what you're making an and how it's being made and we talk about the supply chain a lot but most people aren't really at the root of their supply. I Chan they don't they don't go back to you. Know Not alive designer. Spent much time in cottonfields looking at different types of cotton as they're growing what the fibers look like in different fields. They get finished product. Kind of textiles What does it do for the world? If if people are more in touch with this I would love to answer your question in a complicated way. Cleans that's what the show is more. I think we need to look at the heritage Jane even as we look at the supply chain If you look back at how how we got where we are today in terms of what we make and how we make it into textiles especially The eighteen fifty six invention of the first synthetic dye. Mo- Oh Wien right by a teenage English chemists Perkins totally by accident. He was working with coal tar to try to find a synthetic Quinine quinine substitute right to treat malaria and the colonial era of of the British empire and he discovered that something that he was making Would dissolve Alvin Water and color rags in really very attractive sharp Purple Reddish purple. That unleashed the willful exploration exploration of using a lot of petrochemicals to substitute what were centuries thousands and thousands of years of heritage so for example the company that became. BASF right the maker of the cassette tapes that some of us are old enough to have fetish started off by making making synthetic indigo and interestingly the synthetic indigo they made did not appeal because they had not really captured that the full charm of indigo go went beyond just the indigo molecule. They had to go backward and realized that. Indie Ruben. A red molecule that would form in the process of indigo dyeing was needed to give the color depth so they had to go back and explore. Why Nature was so much more beautiful than what they were at first capable of making in any case since eighteen fifty six we have lost so much knowledge? If you and I walked down the street today and Looked at what people are wearing down the street and we asked ourselves well. How would you ever get that color? Are we using anything other than a chemical would have zero insight. Chances are right. We've left all that behind so the heritage chain I think has impoverished the richness understanding That we used to have about what comes from our world and how it's made and how valuable it is. We've gotten to a point where we're so distant from our heritage chain that things have the virtue of plastic bags of disposable valueless product after they've faded in the washed twice were done. There's a statistic out there that eighty percent of the clothing we buy ends up in a landfill within one year. And it's because we're so oh distant from people culture heritage skill invention and talent that the things we buy are not worth holding onto so then we go to the supply chain right and there really is in as an extension of this heritage chain a set of material knowledge judge that is still relevant in making textiles. It still relevant in making clothing and it's waiting for us to study at more and to really really incorporated into responsible valuable fashion creation.

"It's it's much worse than your for his impression. But I was listening to a little bit of of the government co- audio book and at the end Governo references all the Oscars. I need to hear this days. Just one more thing to tell and that is when they decided decided to make a movie of my life story. That is unusual. Even for me somebody got wind of the fact that I am idiot. Who who has made good and in these days is what they call a man bites dog sort of story? So one day these Hollywood producers comment for me. I am going to be in the motion pictures. Well a lot of you know the rest they done made the show and everybody all over the world went to see it. Well finally it become the night to go to the Academy Awards Show in California and I took everybody. That was my friends there and we set in audience. I even got to set with Bubbas folks and damn if the pitcher didn't win most of the academy the awards and at the end after they get through thanking everybody else they decided to thank me to they was a Mr Letterman as the host. A Nice Feller with big picket teeth and a trick dog and Shit and as the last item on the menu so to speak he announces they is. He's a special award for Oh forrest gump for being the most lovable certified idiot in America and I am called to the stage in after they. Give me the award Mr Letterman asked if they is any thin I would like to say to the TV cameras. And in fact they is and I've been been saving it up as so I look out there on all them fancy dresses and expensive jewelry and pretty women and handsome men and says the first thing that comes to my mind which is of course I got to pee clearly. He doesn't know how the Academy Awards work. I mean I don't think they give out the awards for the most lovable idiot. So unless it's David Letterman bit. Which I doubt would happen at the end of the joke? They normally top load the bits well. I'm really impressed. By your fact checking given that in his book as I already told you he befriends Saddam Hussein. But you can tell from the way that this is written. You're right it has much mature sarcastic. Point of view. I mean you're using the passive voice I think really really tellingly. Yeah like I think there's something really interesting about the the most famous line. Life is like a box of chocolates. The line of the book. Look the first book is let me see this. Being an idiot is no box of chocolates. That's very different sentiment. I mean incredibly really different. It's kind of this movie even say it's based on this book to be honest point. I think all of the changes in emissions say a lot about what American audiences want to see and what they don't I mean you're one hundred percent right now as film has kind of Gone Past. It's time you know and we can reflect on it. It's been I think. Thank you the same way that you and I are looking at this film. But it premier magazine called it one of its twenty most overrated films of all time also on the list Nashville with was eighty writer. Two Thousand and one and gone with the wind delicious though. I don't agree with most of these choices. How do you wrestle with a film home with this? That I think we've not dealt with. That culturally is more significant than the film is good. I mean I think maybe by listening to the people who do love love this movie. Okay Yeah I can only as this podcast is going on. We have a lot of people yelling at their stereo. I think it's time to give them a chance to see yell into the episode and Tell us their or defense of forrest. Gump I don't know if I can give you reasons why forrest gump should be on the guy but I can tell you. I like it as a movie movie. I think it's a very sweet epic so epic films are so sad and so horrible and forrest Gump is just a nice sweet little vision of what one person can achieve in a lifetime and I think that's that's really that's really nice. I think it's a good message in a film Tom The other thing I really like about it is I love the The American history that you've got throughout the film. It's really cool to watch all of those. Those things in American history happened through the eyes of her. I the history nerd. It was really cool when I was a kid. I still feel like the movie Should it be on the list. I don't know but I certainly enjoy watching it And I enjoyed watching it again so forrest. GUMP is one of my favorite movies. He's a long time one of my top ten favorite movies. I love Tom Hanks. In that movie he's brilliant as forrest. Gump the music is amazing and I love enforced in the fact that he remains constant throughout the changing world that he's surrounded by is is not not one of the best cities is beautiful. It is wonderful to watch if motion are almost Tom Hanks to that. Is this National Robin. My if you the food and that and this lovely traffic watch. I grew up on the Gulf coast. I went to the University of Alabama I featured it really. He is revolutionary in terms of special effects. it's a heartwarming. Optimistic started about a truly outstanding security which can be really easy to claim as cheesy cheesy as they cynical world but It's hard not to get wrapped up in his. Just good nature. And yes the history that he participate centers wonky and maybe a little little wrong and could spend the wrong message but I think the character force themselves spreads all the right message wall. Hey guys so as far ars forrest Gump goes visit belong. I don't know but for me. It has all the makings of a decent film. And it's like comfort food in the same way that like my mom's pancakes aren't really GonNa win any awards and baking competitions but because I grew up with them and they have a special place and they have all these wonderful I still eat them even though they're not the best thing kicks in the world on top of that. I think that we can't ignore Mike. Is's attention to detail you know like the the the fact that the pass it officiates at force. Jenny's wedding is the same pastor that owned that runs the church. That force donated all the money to publishers for the new roof. For the fact that at the end of the film he still has the old gum mailbox that was there for the entirety of the film or the fact that in every single photo of force taken his iser closed impassioned some poor photographer trying to do a spread for Time magazine or Congressional Medal of honor winners or whatever trying to coast this poor man to keep is open for just one photo and and those kind of details or what the Mike is known for and and I think those things make it a movie that's worth watching just for the entertainment value forrest Gump is a film has generated an exponential amount of criticism ranging from the snarky comments from outlying critics during his day due to the problematic observations. People can easily make today despite my agreement with many of these criticisms I saw this movie during my formative years and cannot seem to unload unloaded. It was telling when I saw the curious case of Benjamin Button another film from the same screenwriter during my twenties and got all the same fields and I clearly howdy Eddie from this for rich. Well paced narration accompanied by Clever Editing Gorgeous Cinematography and beautiful music. All on a service of making long passages. I'm like I did a song or something less chaotic than the random craziness that like it bottom line. This movie is comfort food. This still seems to work for me when I was growing up. It was my grandmother's listed as one of them had feared dementia and we were lucky out by or she crazy that she would cry a lot and one of the things in the world stop. Crying was play are V. Hr trying to copy for. And I know that is totally anecdotal evidence. But I don't actually have a problem and with fairly terrible being on the list to grandmother from crying so that's also also casting those are really great Calls and I think it it triggered me what I have a connection into in this film is that it is. It's a fun movie to watch. It feels light and nice and sweet and optimistic was a word I really loved. Yeah like they do have so many callers. made the illusion of this film as being food you'd have nourishing them in some sort of away like pancakes and I think there's a slot for that. I I have films that I would not put on the topless. I feel fill me up while I was going to say I wouldn't want to take all the cracker barrel off the interstate. I mean that's that's comfort food. That's the best comfort food. I've never been to one. Amy GotTa get yourself to a cracker barrel. It's so good good. Did one of the callers say that this was Tom. Hanks thanks at his most smashed You didn't feel it. I mean I got that yet. Amy All wanted to do was ride. That I wanted to ride forrest gump into the bone zone zone. Wow that's a sequel. That should exist name zone bone zone okay. So there's one more call I would like to listen to. This is from This is a call from somebody who very near and dear to our hearts. This is from Kim trucks. Yes we love. Kimchi is the person and behind all of our amazing photoshop. Easy on instagram and on twitter She does one for every one of her films. And and you've actually all work on our website at UNSCHOOLED POD DOT com. Yes she is one hundred one thousand one billion percent the best and she has her own very personal connection to forrest gump. it's contractual I'm the one that it creates. The episode Artie Tweak I don't really like four is gone but I wasn't college in Savannah while they were filming movie We would go watching film all the time and they probably see Yada out of the background somewhere because we constantly were riding our bikes through the sets just to get to class But the popularity of the movie really brought a ton more tourism to Savannah and everybody just wanted to come see see that bench and Sort of forced the city to really clean up and revitalize a big part of it. That was sort of in bad shape and rundown and abandoned Handan. So even though I don't really like it as a movie and it's definitely shouldn't be on the list I sort of have a soft spot for it and probably always will a little bit so thanks guys. I love that point of view that forrest gump. As an action of changes it has a place to help urban development You know who would have thought I. I really like that too and you know what. I'm just going to pick a random extra whose face I can't see and I'm is going to decide that. Is Kim my head. forevermore will thank you Kim and make sure you follow her on all the social media things Because she's just the best and we couldn't didn't have a big part of our show without her which is amazing pieces of art your instead of reading a night of us we usually do. Let's not I think I think we you've been voice. Let's just have that Stan as a positive voice and I do want to say actually recently As a website try to figure out state by state what the most popular films of the nineties. Were you know by looking like what's what are people watching. What are people renting and all of these different states and forrest? GUMP does happen to be the number one nineties movie for the people. I Love Mississippi Alabama Georgia in South Carolina. They all love forrest gump. Still I also by the way if you want to know the other the other the other state facts. Here's a couple of Florida. Likes men in Black Black Ohio liked home alone. Colorado says Austin powers. Alaska says Terminator Two Oklahoma of Courses Twister California where the state of Mrs Doubtfire in in Nineteen States. Most of the East Coast my birth state of Michigan. They say titanic and look this movie works. It does work in in listening to everybody. Say how they feel about it But can I just say how much more interesting with this movie. You've been if someone Terry Gilliam directed it because he was attached. Jerry Seinfeld was attach. Attach Terry Gilliam would have been the interesting. One probably would never have been finished but but also absurdist absurdity really fits the time of the book. We need something. I'm here. Yeah I mean this movie takes this story at face value right absolutely a face value. It's like Boris would have a lot of us them of not. Tell me how things really worse Russell America must have been okay except for the shootings of famous people..

"You cannot totally trust but the cast Tom Hanks. It was a person that America that will always trust with anything. Tom Hanks the actor like either way choice to put them in the movie right but I mean the way the characters written though. There's no ambiguity on on him at all. I mean and this is what I'm talking about like about the growth of the character. There's growth the character because the character is written not. I don't know about the novel but in this film to not grow like really not grow. It's like it's it's big. There is a growth there. I mean a physical and and also like commendable growth but here the character is Kinda just locked in amber and he is being pushed around and and it's a bummer because he is going through all sorts of but it doesn't really affect him I. I don't think yeah I mean I think the most team gets to a sort of dim awareness that there might eight be some meaning to the things of his life. He becomes aware that there's a question but he doesn't become aware so much of the answer. I mean here. Let's even listen to him. Explain it at the very end of the film. Don't know Mama with Ride Fifth Lieutenant Dan. I don't know if we each have a destiny or if we're all just floating around around accidental like on a breeze but a thank maybe it's both maybe both happen and got the same time. Aw I mean both is kind of the I took your mic out of the out of the PA system answer. You're going to go with both sides on this. Well that's you know it's a little Oba too little too late it's sort of like I don't buy this from this character after I've spent two and a half hours with them I just don't. This is a character. Dr Who when telling a story about lieutenant dangles. He locked to exercise his arms. And that's how we talked about drinking and it's like well first of all you're right so you're at this base level of knowledge that you you're telling us now like your thing is arms you could like if he says okay. He had a drinking problem of you if you acknowledge if you showed him at any point starting to acknowledge things differently mean but no the voice over is saying he liked to exercise his arms. You know I realized he actually had a problem with bottles. I would even take that but like I don't take the guy who's saying like exercise arms is this and and now you're that's a good point because he's telling the story now and he has no perspective on it which is weird because some of the things you would hope he would have any understanding on it now by things that happened later to me. The big one that we very early on is that Jenny his love is life was molested by her dad yes which he never. He never really seem to comprehend. He'd she doesn't like to go home she does. He sees her angry. He doesn't he never picks up and even when they go back as adults Throws rocks at the windows keen. Ever understands what happened to Jenny and others when I first I saw this movie and has a kid. I didn't understand what happened any. Oh I mean like going back and watching it and Oh my God. I felt like I felt very because he goes. He locked. Herger a law and kiss her and wrote down. This movie is dark. Dark movie is one of the opening scenes like the school principal. Hard fucking fucking his mom and I'm sorry I'm cursing so many times in this podcast but that's a crazy scene show in a PG movie like a little kid outside his mom's window listening to his mom Sellafield get just railed by this principle and then at any does it to get him into school..

I wanted to ask you son op ED. Written by Martin Scorsese in this week's New York Times about marvel movies all yes. We're not doing this again. Okay there Fair enough fair enough but last week we talked about Grapes of Wrath and it really seemed to resonate with a lot of our listeners. They've found themselves Like we did kind of surprised. At how topical this movie Felton. How alive it was? Yeah a lot of people listening to podcast. Who Watch Grapes of Wrath breath dot about how this film could be relevant still today? You're like at two thousand. Who said just listen to the Grapes of Wrath episode a new version should be made about the modern migrant farmers immigrants legal any legal who traveled a farms and work hard to help their families? It would reinforce its relevance it also from facebook Couchepin said while watching this movie they they could not get walking dead out of their head interesting. Yeah that he asks can I. I can't be the first person to make this connection. Tom Is away while sweeping changes happen leaving. His community desolate his clan. As I move from town to town of basic necessities while everyone they meet seems to have lost their humanity. He said that the movie he feels like also some of the downfalls of that show eventually that we're just seeing suffering heaped on people. Wow you know I. I was watching the movie in thinking. You know yes. This will be so much better with zombies. Ah just like our friend Kyle said but then I realized it was already made. That's right Rob Lichter rob from ally our rights that There's a movie called grapes. Grapes of Death made in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight about a young woman who discovers wine made from contaminated grapes that turn people into decomposing zombies. I don't think it has any more similarities than a title. That's a little bit Plenty no but maybe we should watch out and amy This week we are talking about forrest gump and there are some interesting similarities between Grapes of Wrath. I'm forrest gump. And one of them is that Bruce springsteen seems to you have a strong opinions about both last week. You brought up the album ghost of Tom. Jody was inspired in part by Grapes of Wrath. And and there's also song on this album That is inspired by forrest. Gump seems like Bruce Springsteen Thought The forest made a mockery of the working man and wrote the last song on the album about him. So thank you. Martin t that's marking Till this for bringing this to our tension but take a little listen to this. Anti far scum come saw last like a box of chocolates..

"Just everything about it is is straight. So Eric Roth who wrote the first Forrest Gump, and he won an Oscar for it actually did an interview recently, and the the the concept of Forrest Gump to came out. And he revealed he actually wrote a whole script for it. And he turned the script in on September tenth the day before nine eleven, and you know, he said it was canceled. The movie basically was canceled because of nine eleven after nine eleven happened. They just decided there was no reason to make the movie the America chain. Changed so drastically and so on, but even without that this script is sounds utterly insane. Because he dropped some details about first of all the movie starts off with Forrest Gump, son, the son he had with a Jenny Robin rights character in the first film. It's revealed that he has aids because Jenny died of aids and right away. It's like is this really how you you wanna start your movie with Forrest Gump kid having aids? And then that's it resting. It is and then he said Eric Ross says he ties the aids thing into like. Desegregation where we're like. Because apparently when they when the sun finds out he has aged around the time when desegregation happening, and they make apparently a joke about it. How forest thinks they don't want his kid in school because of aids I don't know it just sounds really rather like seat steak and saying, yeah, I just it's not it's not good. And then from there just gets stranger where forest becomes a ballroom dancer for some reason. And he dances with Princess, Diana. And then at one point he ends up in the back of OJ Simpson's Bronco during the pig chase. And then I read the script to find out how they explain I am curious lay eyes on this bunker script, and then later in the film forest befriends, a native American woman and. It's just like reading this breaking my brain. So eventually, she she the native American women. He befriends teaches a nursery school inside the Oklahoma City building that was part of the Oklahoma City bombing. And he says there was a shot where forest is sitting on a bench waiting for her to the meet her for lunch and the building is in the background and the building explodes. And it's like why would you put that? In your movie, this is so upsetting. I don't I don't think anyone would like this. And I'm glad it was never made it. I haven't seen Forrest Gump in, you know, probably a decade at this point. But most of the situations for sound himself in we're kind of like these funds situations. I I mean, I guess, you know, the war is not fun. Yeah. Like, vietnam. And I mean, you know, there's like Vietnam is like the only really, but he was harassed attack in like like, you know, one of the most notable. Suspected murderers on the run out. This just seems like a bad idea from start to finish. This is like the gremlins to a Forrest Gump where it it takes the first movie, it just makes it really weird and dark. HD? Would you have watched this Forrest Gump sequel? No when Christmas ascribing all of those things, I had like a visceral reaction to God sounds just if the first movie while like, it took a light hand to a lot of all those events if it was insensitive to sort of racial and social issues throughout history afford this dislike I dunno takes a sledgehammer to them. Like, I mean, even before Chris finishes his sentence. He's like, and then he befriends an African American woman. I'm like. Where's this going? You know, it might intros almost going to say, thankfully, this was canceled because of nine eleven batting wanna make a joke about nine eleven but. Actually, I wrote this story. I originally had in the opening thankfully were spared this movie, and then I realized that's probably wrong word because we can't thank nine eleven. But I am thankful. This was not made. Yeah. Maybe in the darkest time line. But at least we're not in the time line where forest Gump to aid. Yes. Thank you. Although of anybody has the script for Forrest Gump to please send it to Peter at slash home dot com. I'd love to. To read some of it. I would love to have a good laugh..

"So you can achieve both time and financial freedom. But the one drawback I have found to helping people. The one problem chop I've found to helping people chief financial freedom is this once somebody achieves financial freedom, some people don't know what to do next. There's a scene from Forrest Gump Forrest Gump, the epic movie starring Tom Hanks, where he discovers that he's rich and so Captain Dan, his buddy, let's know that he took some of the money that forest gave him and invested it in a fruit company. In the fruit company has done well, and so he's rich and so forth. Gump was asked by somebody, you know, how do you feel now that you're, you know, wealthy and your financial free what he is, but it's just one less thing to think about. And so, and that's all it is. That's the whole point of a business is to have one thing to think about. That's all it is only reason for starting company. And so there's a psychological term called flow state and then has a take on this. There's there's a cycle. There's a a term that psychologists use called flow state, and it is a state of mind or a state of being where you feel energized focused full involvement and joint in the process or the activity that you're doing. An essence flow is characterized by having complete absorption in what one does, and then you as a result lose track of space and time because you're just having such a good time. And so I challenge you Mr. listener to implement the three action steps that were teaching today. MRs listener, I challenge you to implement the three action steps that we're going to teach today because my goal, my prayer, my hope is to help you not just. Financial success. I mean, what would be the point of having all the money in the world? If you didn't have of you didn't enjoy it. If you didn't enjoy the time freedom that you have. And I see a lot of business owners that I've helped achieve financial freedom in the literally say to meeting, they'll say, this is goes, they'll say, hey, I have question and I'll say what, and they'll say, I, I have a lot of money and I don't know what to do with my day. I don't know what to do. I, I'm bored and I'm feeling frustrated 'cause I don't know what I should be doing. And so I kind of go into the office and screw some things up. And I I, I've been networking a lot now and I'm kind of I don't know what I don't have a role. I don't. I don't feel like looking for some self worth. Right, right, right.
