Fresh update on "helena" discussed on The Watch
"It's perceptive. And it is also a little bit of just kind of like someone has to make the wheels turn so she points out that major looming battle between charles and diana. But i don't really think an care that much. It seems a little unfair to an character. I enjoyed who seemed to be kind of above it and the she keeps harping on it. I understand exposition. That you have to do it because you can't have the whole circus in the show. More focused but justice for and yeah. I haven't watched ahead. I also would love for princess margaret to get a couple more lines other than. Would you like some sherry. And she'll rake 'cause she obviously would probably she obviously has the most perception of of the people in that room of what's happening to these younger people. Yeah and that's what's so fascinating. It is also a little sad is she. And the queen. Mother are just like the unit like the unmarried older women who just kinda show up for support team whenever in a way. that sweet. And it's nice. And helena. Bonham carter offers the queen a drink but it happened very quickly and for someone who even invested in so much time in for her to be now one of the old ladies and it's like it's like oh it's sad. Yeah they use them for doing this with me. It's my pleasure. You think things are gonna go well in the last episode i. It's interesting super happy ending. Yeah i do wish honestly if they wanted to do like fifteen or twenty. I'd be fine. I am too. I'm glad they're doing two more seasons all right so we'll finish up the season on monday. It'll be episode. Seven eight nine hundred. Thank you so much for joining me. Amanda thank you. So i'm joined with by vanderbilt's as usual discuss these last four episodes of the crown. Season for amanda. Thank you so much for doing this whole project with me. First of all thank you for having me. It's a real treat for me. This is a show that i love. And it's fun to talk about it with you and we've talked about twenty episodes. We'll once we're done this pod and then we have twenty mortar. Go right yes. This marks the end of the olivia colman administration. Yeah and i thought we could start with a little bit more of a big picture conversation because there's so many elements of the crime. That i think have now started to echo back to the beginning of the series and you can start to really look at this more as like a show unto itself rather than some sort of quasi historical document and i was wondering if you have noticed your relationship to the show changing over the years and seasons in any kind of describable way absolutely. I continue to think the show is masterful. In terms of its writing and the production value the performances from olivia colman on down are just extraordinary. We were talking before we started recording. About how. I spent some time this morning on josh o'connor fan pages which is a says a lot about a lot of things but it's a testament to his acting and specifically that even playing such a ultimately despicable role as prince. Charles is in season four that he is so back medic that i wanted to know more about him but my relationship to how the show my relationship to the shows relationship to the royal family has changed. And maybe this shows relationship hasn't changed. And i've just become wise to it but i do think this season in particular has been not when they've turned on the royal family and i don't think any show that is this invested in this institution can be anti monarchist. I think we have to acknowledge that. If you're watching the show you are consuming. I've not royalist propaganda than royalist at like empathy. It's hard to listen to phillips last monologue and think anything else. Yes and it's just it's like it's time spent an ideal ultimately believe that just putting her in the center and asking you to empathize specifically with queen. Elizabeth is ultimately to ask you to at least digest and see the world from their point of view. But i think especially in the last half of season. Four the knives start turning a bit on the royal family and and what it is and what it represents and what it is done and the human cost both within and certainly outside the royal family. And it's it's an interesting line for the show to walk. I admire them for trying it. I mean i think you have to at some point or else this just becomes cotton candy and the the royal family is a. It's an anachronistic patently ridiculous institution. It is in many ways like a fairy tale that people are forced to live through and they do reckon with that idea but it has also been a source of cruelty and pain to millions of people and a lot of different ways if you really tease it out. And if you go back to some of the empirical history so i it's it's been interesting. I was surprised. I think they've done it really effectively. I feel not queasy about my affection for the show but queasy about my interest in the royal family. And i think that's the point. When this series i came on there was a little bit like the most dismissing. Could say like the elevator pitch would be like what if queen elizabeth and it was just sort of like imagining these people that most people's relationship with their senior citizens and imagining. They're like wild hot young years and then placing them in this sort of canvas of world war two and having these figures like winston churchill and john f. kennedy show up and like kind of minting..

How I Built Resilience: Songe LaRon of Squire
"Hey everyone and welcome to how I built this resilience edition on these episodes were talking with entrepreneurs and other business leaders about how they're thinking creatively during lists very disruptive moment and today my conversation with Song Laurent. The CO founder of Squire Squire is an APP that connects barbershops with clients. Song founded Squire 2016 with his best friend Dave Salvant to modernize. Modernize the barbershop experience, and nowadays their APP is not only booking appointments, but also helping barbershop stay open if they're allowed to a spoke Asong a few days ago, about Squire and the barbershop industry but I. Sam let me know that he actually wasn't at home. I should mention a you are actually in an office of a barbershop right now in Connecticut. which you can, you can hear of it behind you. Know, that's fine. That's fine. So so first of all our our barbershops in Connecticut. Open yes. Yes, they are. They are open. I, Think Connecticut is probably faced three or phases where barbershops other service based businesses are open, so yeah, they're. They're open for business. And what's the protocol near the barber's wearing masks and the customers? Wearing asks Barbara's wear masks. Customers were masks There's no waiting in the barbershop anymore. Customers will have to wait outside in their car until their appointment time is is ready, and there's also no social distancing between chairs. They spread out the share, so they're. They're know they're servicing less fewer customers. As a result, our say that Barbara's are probably one of the few. Types of professionals that are very well equipped in this in this new environment, because they actually go to school for this in order to get a barbershop Barbara License, you have to study disinfecting and taken different precautions, so you know unlike. Maybe waiters or other types of people who are providing services I think Barbara's are one of the few that actually already had to get licensed and go through education to be prepared for this environment, so I'm a big proponent of of our shot of your opening. I'm in California and now barber shops are closed and I have to be honest like I'm a little I'm still nervous about I. would still be nervous about going. You know I've I've given myself to very bad haircuts over the last six months with with clippers and my kids do but what I mean. When you go now to barbershop. What are they doing? Everyone's everyone's wearing a mask, but are they disinfecting the seats between customers and you know? Disinfecting. have to disinfect tools between every. Bet should be doing man now. They're also disinfecting of seating area. Many of them are using disposable Barbara case. Or they're using a one per customer. The have a supply already, so they're not reusing the case. A lot of them are not doing certain services like they won't do beard worker. They won't do a shave. Anything would require the client to remove their. Ask You know I think that there hasn't been lot of evidence of barb shrouds being one of the high transmission sentences yeah with. With anything, there's risks as this risks. Walk outside a any day is going to be some risk involved, and it's just a matter of the balance of how how much you want that service, so it makes sense. If you don't feel comfortable getting haircut, there was this article. You probably saw it a couple of days ago of a hair salon where I'm two of the stylists had. Tested, positive, Kobe, but none of the more than one hundred thirty customers at went in over the course of the day's tested positive. Everybody was wearing masks in. Suggests that really work mass to work if there's one thing I, wish, everyone could kind of agree on I. think that you know Mass Work. Yeah can we can we just say that right now? All of those people who were on the hike that I went on over the weekend. who were not wearing masks when you pass by me on the trail? That was this wide. Please wear masks. All Right? Let's talk. Brass tacks here song, so I mentioned a little bit about Squire for people who don't know the APP Tell us more about it. Yeah, so squire is a business management in point of sale software focusing on barbershops, so we do essentially everything that at barber shop needs to run their business from handling the booking interface to the back end inventory is really customized specifically for the barber shop, Industry and consumer side is a client You can actually find a barbershop a book. Pay Tip all in the APPAR- on the west side, and what's the business model? How do you guys make money through Business from Helena payment processing so that quarter our business there's a subscription component so the shops that use our platform pay one hundred dollars to two fifty a month, and then there's a customer booking fee, so if you book and pay on Squire, you'll pay about a dollar extra and that revenue goes to squire. Don't know this, but a lot of barbers are independent contractors. You may go to a barbershop and they have a chair there, but they actually are their own business right? Yeah, so to central models for Barbara business models. One is where you mentioned which we call kind of model Riche Barber is essentially an independent contractor of they run their own business. They manage their own schedule. Go and come as they please, and then they pay rent. Rent to the owner usually on a weekly basis, and then the other model is recall a commission model where those barbers are treated a little bit more like employees They have certain hours they come, and in that case they split the percentage of the transaction with the shop. Usually it'll be sixty, forty or fifty fifty and the owner get a piece of every transaction. you cope out of this with your friend Dave Tell me how you guys had the idea I know. I mean you studied philosophy? As an undergraduate went and got a law. Degree and Dave was an old friend I guess. How did you guys come up with this idea? So I actually. Found this squire I was at a corporate law firm and Davis actually in business school, and both of us wanted to do something entrepreneurial didn't want to go the corporate route so we would just brainstorm ideas on the weekend. And we eventually stumbled on the idea of barbershops and idea came out of our own experience. I haven't gone to barbershops for decades like most people I started going my dad as a kid around six or seven and experience of going to the barbershop heading change very antiquated, low tech industry cash-based. Call to make an appointment. Wait Times, so all of those pain points that we experienced form the basis of why we came up with the idea of this is something that we wanted to work on yeah. I shop. They don't take appointments. You have to get there. When the doors open at eight thirty, and they have a chalkboard, and there's usually a line, and it's cash only it's thirty five bucks, and you can get there eight thirty, and you might only get an appointment like eleven forty five, and some days all like ride my bike down there at eight thirty, and then they only have an appointment at a time. We'll have a live interview and I can't get an appointment. I can't get a haircut. But basically that's that's been the model for ever and ever for most barbershop. Yeah, so that's what we're solving. Because that's not really an ideal experience for you as as a customer, and it's not a good experience for the Barbara's either I in terms of efficiently. Running their business, but getting a haircut such such a great experience, and it's such an important part of your life that you're willing to to go through You know that poor customer experience to to get the service but we think that recommit the better than that. How how of you like? How do you approach barbershops I mean I have to imagine like there are a lot of barbershops that are like I. Don't want to give up my cash. I don't WanNa. Give Up. You know percentage of my business or percentage of my income I mean it's presumably you get some pushback from potential customers. How do you make the case for people to sign up? Yeah I, mean we? Sell to them is that this is going to make their lives easier? It's going to save time, and this is actually gonNA enable them to be better business and make more money and we can show them that. The software the software actually does early on. We did get more pushback from cash only shops. So our focus was more on shops that are already taking cards, but that's really the trend in the world, generally consumer are used to paying for services with cards, so the shops that are cash only there will be some segment that doesn't want to pay taxes quite frankly, but we're seeing more and more particularly. The newer shops that are opening, they understand that if they want meat consumers and provided really great strengths of their clients that they have to kind except cars, and it enables them to charge, you know we know that assess. People will pay more on card versus cash, and if you want to charge thirty dollars, a haircut for haircut, as is the case in many many cities. It just makes sense I have to imagine that bookings are significantly down because there's so many states you can't. You can't go a barbershop. Yeah, so bookings definitely took a dip when the shutdown started march April in our revenue, went zero gap, and we also decided to waive all of our subscription charges to current and new customers until October because we knew that their revenue was also GonNa go to zero. We want them to have that overhead. So as a result we expecting squire, since wouldn't be making any money, but row cave that because this is such a difficult time. What we have seen though is that at shops? Our customers reopening? They are getting put out. There getting relatively fast, and then and then the programs are continuing to stay consistent. You know that that just kind of speaks to how much of a neither was like a pent up demand from their clients to get haircuts, and I think that there's something about just the barbershop experience and the community element of it that people men in particular really look forward to to that normalcy, and to be able to get a haircut feel great about themselves and feel the way things were. They were before covert. So we're, we're actually seeing for the shops at rb opening higher than usual bookings and. Know we'll see how that trend continues in the months to come so far. There's something I read that you. You said about barbershops you call them. fail-proof service which I think is is right, you know I think you said look. They bring in roughly half the population that needs grooming, but this pandemic which nobody predicted and nobody anticipated has shown that nothing is fail-proof. Everything can fail even the most resilient. Is So however, the past few months, kind of made you rethink your business model. It's made me understand that you could never predict the future. There's always gonna be an unknown. We always thought that that are a a recession was coming some point right now. The good the gravy train can't go on forever. Our sought that out our business would fare relatively well in a downturn because. People will continue to get haircuts and we've seen this you know in in in the past that these type of of services no tend to remain consistent in downturns I mean. This is a total black swan ran. I never would have predicted a pandemic at the scale, but if anything I. Believe that our business is even more resilient than I thought before. Just seeing how we've been able to Kinda DAB to to the reality and make changes on the fly, a push features that we know our customers need during his time, and as a result, we've seen in the last two months actually more inbound. And more customers signing up than we ever have in the life of the confident. When we come back in just a moment, we'll hear from song about running a business drink a global economic crisis and his plans forgetting squire through the pandemic. Stay with US I'm guy and you're listening to how I built this resilience

"Item does chief Helena makes him since someone out of it for you when you tell people they can't gang bang they can't rob from people that they can't steal from people can you forcibly stop them from doing it they don't like it and they call you nasty names and when given the chance to pretend that they are a victim they're going to take out the aggression that they're normally arrested for this society has turned this media has turned this thing on its head I want to pull the cops out of the cities in the media in there let him shattered the windows of C. N. N. like they did let them surround the media let the media not be protected by the officers that they're running down in calling broods let's see if the media fears the police well this mob of supposed protesters that's what that's the sense I can make of this that's the sense to be made of this leave in Baytown girl Michael berry show go ahead I'm sixty three that might have some observations with that I'd like to bring up I started trying to remember when my generation help break down segregation in the public schools we wouldn't as a kid I live through it and I remember watching complaining and yelling and taunting black people but I don't ever remember why YH where they burn down buildings and infrastructure the next thing that I wanted when I was I remember in the eighties Mexican Mexican Americans make up over fifty percent of Texas's population there was a riot or some sort of disturbance in moody park that they only arrested three people free the moody park three women I don't remember women rioting and burning down things to get the vote I don't remember any Asians rioting Occidental Indians I don't remember any ethnic Morris from the longer from the middle eastern all these other ethnic minorities they don't do that but don't burn down infrastructure and destroy one of the things that I wanted to point out the justice these insurance policies they don't cover riots and they don't cover war public disturbances and so those losses are uninsured and the damage that's been done no no no no capital a venture capitalist will go back into that area and rebuild it because they can insure their investment and so that's one comment well you're exactly right in in the problem your point is well taken in in what is lost in all of this is that communities are built not on the emotion of someone with a bullhorn this country is now being run by sociology in not but not economics the media is driven by sociology and psychology courses when we need to understand economics you can help people all day you can tell them you are worthy you're a good person you come from a great rich history you people have been maligned but you're a good person at heart do your best everyone loves you nobody hates you but that's not how dollars flow dollars a very sophisticated they are driven by factors of reason and that's done during the daylight hours not overnight in the people who live in the night people who live by fire and cocktails and screaming in and madding mobs of violence those people don't make good economic decisions and you can't reason with people who refuse to learn the immutable laws of economics dollars follow security dollars need to be liquid if you buy into and if you invest in a neighborhood where you can't sell what you've built then your dollars are illiquid you're tied in your hand cuffed people don't want to do that smart investors don't want to do that we were a big wide open country and that's why every major city that is safe and secure a Dallas or Houston these these sorts of places that's why we continue to see Katie move a little further out that's why we continue to see the Cole's cross crossings put in that's why we continue to see fifty nine south go further and further out that's why we continue to see forty five north go to Texas grand ranch and beyond that's why we continue to see league city and Webster needs communities building out if you look at where the growth and development is is it's because dollars are looking for places to go that they can grow and you can't grow in the inner city it is not a lack of density it's not even a lack of buying power because mixed omits the looters and rioters and bombs there are plenty of people with earning power plenty of people who could spend that money but the businesses don't want to encourage the risk it's a bad economic decision it's not a sophisticated investor that goes into a neighborhood to lose your investment it's just not in that's the long term consequences and see that's what nobody talks about in the middle of all this what nobody talks about is who's getting hurt you know who's getting hurt it's not the graphite with a cop the long term pain will be felt by the people who made the mistake of investing in those communities and make no mistake you're investing in a community when you buy your house you're investing in a community when you open your business and when they allow this nonsense to go along with this looting and rioting goes on in the neighborhood that neighborhood is dead for decades and you know who loses out of that I got burned in that gas Machin he doesn't have anything to lose he doesn't give a damn not even a little bit the guy that loses a Gadda gets up the next morning and comes out in scrapes up the shattered glass out of the front of his business the Asian business owner that Marion Barry referred to is dirty because he's from India or China or Thailand or Vietnam yeah we're not preparing people for life some things wrong well some team must be right you're listening to Michael Beary all star construction has been doing construction projects for

This is an opportunity to talk to someone who's career I've followed consistently working, but never really kowtowing to Hollywood.

We admire of the ideas that the finance on the history creatologist. Welcome to Russell brand one of the things that we are discovering in the corona virus supply chains are going to start to break down system cannot sustain itself. I was struck by the coal of manufacturers and airlines for bailout support in much the same way as the banks were bailed out easing in two thousand and eight whereby sometimes through crisis various kinds of financial or in this case of a micro biological the reality is suddenly exposed to that we're living beneath the veneer of an artificial system that exists not for the benefit of the people that is supposed to serve but for the benefit of the people the top of the various hierarchical pyramid and. It's so remarkable that we're letting this happen because let me step back and look at the big picture you know. The actual winners in this type of growth is less than one percent of the global population. So we really are crazy to let this happen but I think what I see as the biggest problem is that at the grassroots is amazing. Natural spontaneous localization movement growing but it needs to be reinforced by more knowledge of the vulnerability and the destruction of the global system. I believe that if more people could hear this message that we would find in a very very rapid very short time that people say Yeah. We don't want a system that makes less than one percent return richer and that at every step of the way right now is pushing government business us as individuals to use more energy and technology for every single thing. That's done whether in education healthcare in every arena. The push is towards more energy more technology. And we're dumping the human race this over. Abundant renewable resource of people doesn't dumping and when we dumped them. Part of what happens is fundamentalism. Terrorism Violence Abuse Mental mental illness. Absolutely and this is because human life itself is no longer regarded as sacred because we have been deposited in new roles as consumers above all laughter.

"helena" Discussed on Welcome with Karim Kanji
"I. I I told so the girl who plays my daughter Morgan To Jenny in the show. I've told her that and she promised me she is going to teach me how to do a cartwheel once and for all heart. What you gotTa start somewhere you know. I listen we're we're we're trying. I'm trying to do that in I take karate with my son and You know we've got to do those tumbles and I do that and I get up dizzy in these. These kids are like doing it and giggling and everything and I don't know I'm too old for this stuff like for me. It's it's It's a fear of the unknown. Like I don't know how it's supposed to feel when I flip upside down. I I think it's going to be like once I really start. It's too bad. My wrist is in the condition that it is now. I'd love to just start practicing at home but I think that it's one of those. It's going to be like a rollercoaster like I love rollercoasters. Okay but when I I usually go try to go on a rollercoaster three times. The first time I go on the roller coaster. I don't want anyone to talk to me. I close my eyes. I cover my ears like I blocked my ears. I can't hear anything and I home and I do that the whole way on eight. Yeah I do that the hallway and then the second time I don't have to block my ears and I can open my eyes a little bit and then the third time when I go on. I'm screaming at full blast. I've got my hands up in the air. My feet up in the air and totally in it and I feel like that's going to be the same progression for me when I learn how to do things like cartwheels or tumbling. Because I think it's just it's just a matter of practice and dedication that's a lot of lining up. I know it. If you want the trick is you got to go on a day where it's like October I. It's like eight degrees outside and it's kind of drizzly. They nobody at that theme park. I guarantee you nobody you will. You will make ourselves sick.

"helena" Discussed on Welcome with Karim Kanji
"Thank you so much for joining me. Helena proposal I guess the first question is probably the question. We're all asking everybody And ourselves and our friends and our family is is. How are you coping these days? What are you doing? Well lots of podcasts recordings over skype in the phone. I'm hoping yeah exactly exactly. Yeah I mean it's it's I mean my Gosh I can't even. I can't even imagine what it's like for the majority of the people out there. I feel like I feel like I'm one of the lucky ones. And you know no matter who you are where you are what situation you're in. I think it's it's the unknown as always very scary and And so he kinda just gotTa take it day by day and You know there are people who've experienced you know Greater things than this before overcome it so we not only can do is take it day by day for me personally interesting. I actually a I feel like I've been quarantined or self isolating for the last six weeks already. Okay yes I had. I had surgery on my wrist in early great. So it's not that I was completely self isolated since then but definitely my activities have been limited and so I feel like I'm a pro at this. I feel like I got this under wraps. I know how to be at home for long periods of time. As why did you? Why did you have surgery on your wrist? I broke my wrist when I was thirteen years old. I was rollerblading racing with my stepbrother and I fell and broke my wrist and apparently and I didn't know this I for many many years but apparently one of the bones in my wrist didn't heal properly and so I hope nobody's squeamish when he's one of the bones and heal properly and so is kinda sticking up a little bit like you would never know it. I mean I could feel it under my skin. But alum so the tendons in my hand. Every time I would open and close my hand. Tendons would rub against that bone. My doctor kind of gave me this awful visual he said you imagine a rock and you take a rope and you can push that wrote back and forth along that rock and tendons of doing. Yeah exactly that's what I said too. And so we decided to do as surgery to get rid of that little bone and hopefully Put myself in a position where I wouldn't have those tenderness eventually rupture on me. I and when he opened me up it turned out that one of them already had much bigger surgery in longer recovery. Time so I was in a cast for two weeks and now has been in a splint.
Quarantined & Single
"Welcome to Jen love. Quarantine addition where. We're what we're singl- singling quarantined. They've quarantined us. No vote for real For those listening and for future. S If you're listening to this we are recording from a kind of crazy place in history amidst the Cova nineteen outbreak and the kind of quarantine situation that we're all currently in Alex do you want to talk a little bit about your quarantine situation or like What's been going on with you and what's been coming up for you and all of this sure Yeah it is a really wild time. I think it's I don't think any of us have lived through something like this. I don't think our parents have quite lived through something like this It's been really wild. I am working in restaurants right now. Actually just had quit my remote nine to five job At the hospital. Which for a moment I had some regrets about. But but we don't our turnover. Greg has also that John predicated on a research study being executed. Which may no longer happen considering that it requires people to be in a large group of a large group together for several weeks at a time. So who even knows what's going on there. I know So yeah I work in. I work in restaurants. I live with my mom right now. Who's sixty five and I think it's just been so interesting. How things have developed so quickly And how every day has been so different and how every moment husband so different and the restaurants. I work in our switching to take out. Only because that is what is been mandated by the state of Maine But I decided that it's probably not very smart or wise for me to continue going into work where there are still like eight to twelve people in the building and then running out. Take out bags to people's cars While I live with my mom Well not only that but also isn't it? Also that you I mean we both fall into that higher risk category exactly which I was just GonNa say mention I unfortunately Was a smoker for a really long time. I started smoking cigarettes when I was a teenager. And if If any of you can to that or you know started some habits young. They're a tough habits to break And so yeah you know. People that have our former smokers or obviously still smoking. Cigarettes Are At high risk. Helena has type one diabetes which. I'll let you talk about and so I just think it's I mean. I think everyone should be really cautious right now. Because there's so much we don't know Abou- Corona virus or you know how it's GonNa Affect people and I think everyone should be really really safe right now if you don't have to leave your house. Don't leave your house if you don't have to socialize with other people Don't unluckily we have all this great technology and tools to connect in like an hour? I'm GONNA be taking online dance class. So that's cool so I don't know I feel Nervous in some ways but also at peace. And how are you feeling over there in Massachusetts? Lana I feel and this might be a controversial thing to say. But I feel kind of relieved at the board and it's to slow down because I hate modern life and I'm commuting right now into the city to work and it's the type of job that you can work basically around the clock and I feel immense pressure to do that and then I'm commuting into the city out of the city go you know Hustle Culture Blah Blah Blah. And I fucking hate it so although I don't WanNa suffering and pain on humanity at all and I don't wish it upon anyone. There is a sense of relief in the fact that were being forced to slow down. And then you know I would urge people and I'm trying to do this myself as fast as I can to. Not just use this slow time to numb out with technology and TV shows and whatever but to also use it as a time to turn inwards. And you know figure out what's important to you and what's been going on in your life that you haven't had a minute to sit down and reflect upon until right now and what do you want to change. And maybe my hope is that we can all use this as Yeah an opportunity to reflect going forward and and change our ways a little bit So yeah I I guess my main feeling right now although I have anxiety and yes I have type one diabetes so that has pushed me into action of just really really eating healthily eating low carb monitoring my blood sugar and being really good about that because that can impair immune function so. That's very scary to me. And then also practicing social distancing but a the overarching feeling for me is actually relief. Weirdly enough yeah. I don't think that's weird at all. I also feel a lot of relief because we live in the society. That's Gogo go and you have to achieve as much as you can. In once you achieve that thing you have to achieve more and you know the amount of success you can have is unlimited Which I think is all not true And it's really interesting. I know that united talking a lot about like the spiritual meaning of all of us and I think it is such a relief because it is forcing us to all slowdown. It's also showing us that our systems You know our economy in the way things run obviously aren't working because when you know things like this do happen. It's not like we could have predicted the krona virus to happen but I think unfortunately there will be a lot of devastation happening with people that can't work. That will lose their jobs. Our economy is crashing a bit right now so I think As you know you can look at it in this kind of scary wave but you can also change your perception about it and look at it like we're just all of us are part of this transformation into maybe a different world and I believe it's in divine order so I think that I think we're all GonNa get through this and There will be pain but we can also celebrate this new life to come yet and I I do want to say just a note because obviously we understand that we come from a place of privilege in that. We have food and shelter and everything provided for us. And I think to Alex's point it's pretty unfortunate and pretty telling that people in our society have to work even throughout through this and are going to be suffering in that way and you know kids are going to be at home. But they're going to have to go to work and there's a lot of Inequality but this is a good time. Also I think to step up for

The British basically one like other sibling duos in native history corn stock and non Halama lead together during peace and war for example at the battle of bushy run in seventeen sixty four non Halama lead warriors warriors alongside her brother.

"I thoroughly enjoyed speaking with the incredible. Olivia Komen but we couldn't finish off the season without without spending time with her enigmatic onscreen little sister. It was a chilly London. Morning when Helena Bonham Carter invited us into her beautiful for whom to have a good old matter about Princess Margaret Helena. Thank you for allowing us to come to your wonderful house and your island of a kite. The big couches. It's comfortable. I'm moving to be here Charlton about the crime. Yes we because I the thing can about Princess Margaret. And if you really try to hone in on Harder Patterson and trying to get to the person the real person and kind of how you with over. It's very difficult to to get to the heart. Somebody said phenomenally well known and has such a received narrative and everyone seems to have an opinion on them even though they actually met her. So I I had the same problem with Queen Mum in a way Elizabeth Taylor. I think the only way I mean I do everything because I love all the research stuff and skating being and I feel like I'm a bit of a detective through setting information. Tim Always Go. God say you're not writing an autobiography. You're just pretending to be somebody else I need to get. I want to get the bits exactly and I love any new bit because it gives you you choice and always the best bitten life I find is the possibility of something the actuality always ends up. It's like Christmas. Day is sometimes actually macaroni and put the possibility of Christmas awesome farm dissipation possibility an opportunity and the more of that is. That's where you get your capes out with Margaret. She's a gift because there are so many different sides to her. Morgan said because we had lunch before and I was becoming an rn. Because I am Gemini and I need to know I've made exactly right decision when I arrive. I'll be fully committed but I'll have to speak with adults before you get there. And he said the thing is with Margaret is that you can play this scene ten ways but will be appropriate so changeable and she was so multi faceted and but switch gear very very quickly. I went through a whole different levels. Might tackle files on. We look crazy. It's really a a vision. Yes of crazy but but I read the biographies. I met the friends friends. The friends of the crucial. Because they're the ones who really knew her so you can go to someone who actually knew an amfar. Anton's book she. She almost wrote out of frustration. will her own own. Life is as interesting as Margaret's but about Princess Margaret because she's so sick as a friend of people making judgments about when very few people and people who you never met a metaphor a second you know I made a judgment image judgment and that's that's the the curse of the point being the curse that comes with being famous in in the sense that people will say oh. I met that person. And if you're not on that list split-second then in their their head starts you are and I think Margaret was definitely very erratic mood and she was honest. She didn't put on a facade. Unlike the que- mom was brilliantly. Putting on a facade of niceness. Burt Muslim wasn't the way she floated. And she put on a great act of softness and marshmallow calm and underneath was pure steel and my aunt aunt was great hope. She's a follow gist genres handwriting. Oh why did she do both people's handwriting. That's what she said about Queen. Mum Absolute he to her was. She was a great at being famous because she could put on a lack and she was she could do being queen she could do being famous law. People who are famous can't really doesn't sit well with them. And the two vulnerable and Margaret was vulnerable. I so there's a lot of thinking that she was very like her father bother notion of And the Queen woman the Queen of the same ilk. Yeah what did you see about mortgage Andrea. She saw a quarter some weather analysis beautiful handwriting. She's very creative. She's very clever. She's very cultivated and cultured. But she could see how oh she lost her way as she got older probably through drink and through an emotion. Stop the hadn't been sorted my astrologer because I got various. which is I go to? She was amazing. She was the one who said no matter who she was she would be incapable of. Not Saying was in her head like that. Were saying saying what's he doing what you're doing. You wouldn't have got very true because you see diplomatic when she goes to who ask for Oh let me have purpose. Let me find something I WANNA do. And and then the queen speaks to Philip about. And he's like Oh we what she's going to set you know. Is that the liability.

Golden Globe Nominations: Netflix Leads — In Both Movies And Television
"Golden globe nominations came out of this morning so that's going to error the seventy seven golden globes will air on January fifth the Beverly Hilton hotel with Ricky Jr vase is the host the seventy seventh annual golden globe awards it's always it's always a fun time because the actors everybody very very relaxed that might be one way to say it they're very relaxed well a lot of them appear to be have snapped in old sold now Matt Roush is on the line Matt good morning how are you pretty good how you doing good to have this chance to chat with you John Heinz in for Dave Lee here and golden globe nominations coming out here and and we're learning more and more about this a couple of my favorites made the cut including Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin for the Kaminski method which is just a I just I just that is a a marvelous marvelous shell yeah and they really do love it it didn't get quite as much love by the Emmys and all but yeah it did well for them last year at the golden globes I think Michael Douglas one and maybe Alan Arkin dead but aunts and sort of the show so that was good so good showing from them although I do think when it comes down to it what's probably going to win the big prizes this year because of the show this what the Emmys last year is Amazon's flea bag starring Phoebe Waller bridge and she's a real rising star in the show was so traffic is only six episodes for to see them then and still that so made a big impact and it's what the critics awards as well so yeah and then the marvelous with this Maisel as well the the Amazon show that the just dropped last weekend and and so people are Startin side are just now binging a probably but that one does very well at the awards to be yes and the the Kaminski method is a favorite of the golden globes and the golden globes do love shows that have sort of really starry cast on them like Michael Douglas coming back to television and that was a really big deal so another another show I think somebody beat some people might be surprised got a bunch of nominations is the morning show from the brand new streaming service apple but it's a very starry inside the baseball behind the scenes look at a morning show that has the Matt Lauer type scandal it was nominated for best drama and the two stars Jennifer Aniston Reese Witherspoon were both nominated and they're just big stars and and the globe I mean people like Jennifer Aniston just like tailor made for a globe nomination so even though that still got some X. reviews it's in the top tier of the drama series being nominated for the clubs the thing about that let me mention mark marvelous Mrs Maisel how many episodes do they drop when they drop for a season something they do to him this time they did eight episodes episode so and then when we look at this when we look forward to what's going on I'm curious to know this doesn't ever become like a precursor though for the Emmys doesn't because the Emmys are quite a ways away it's not as it's not as tied to the Emmys as it is seen as like an Oscar precursors of right look at this is like a bellwether for what's going to happen the Oscar nominations and what's really happening there is the fact that Netflix is has just released dominated the field in both television and movies with movies like the Irishman M. marriage story and even smaller films like you well actually with the but that Eddie Murphy movie dolomite is my name got a comedy nomination so did very well they got seventeen nominations in movies they also got seventeen nominations in in television with shows like the crown which just happened just dropped in amazing affect the third season a few weeks ago with a brand new cast including Olivia Colman as the queen Tobias Menzies as prince Philip and Helena Bonham Carter as the sister princess Margaret all three of those got globe nominations as well so they love that there is that a show that a lot of people milling would be familiar with called unbelievable it was a limited series true crime drama that's had a mirror weaver and Toni Collette played detectives and Kaelin beaver a young girl who was sexually assaulted and it dealt with this serial rapist is really just a great series but didn't get a lot of buzz because to get swallowed by all the Netflix stuff this would popped out and got four nominations which is as many of the crown and the most nominated TV mini series which was Chernobyl on HBO so again in a lot there's so much TV nowadays it's hard for anything to pop through well yes I heard you mention that more than once there is just an awful lot of television these days so that's pretty much the way it it what it comes down to to hear so what are you looking forward to see what's coming up what's new on the radar is there anything new on the radar well not a lot new but I will tell you one thing that is if you're watching TV this week in what if one of your habits of the watch wheel of fortune along with jeopardy that you're gonna notice the Pat Sajak is nowhere to be seen on the set of they're going into their big winner promotion they called the secret Santa give away and Vanna white is stepping in for Pat Sajak this the next week these episodes were filmed while he was recovering from a domino surgery and she's in a guest once before at least but but and then the many many years they've done the show but to have her doing the Pat Sajak they'll be startling for people if they didn't know this happened with those episodes airing this and next week and the Paley this budget Disney characters on the set as well because of the Disney promotion so I don't know what that means group is going to turn over letters or what it was in late night you know we were back in the days

"Cancelled the WW network trended for over I think twelve hours in the United States brought this up on the post show but it's worth mentioning again how long it actually trended in the US on twitter that's that's equal to give divas a chance it took a long time go away and wwe heard the message loud and clear that the fans were not happy with the decision of for Seth Rollins to retain the title at helmets L. and it wasn't even that seth retain the title it's the way that it happened where you had a referee stoppage in Helena sell first time I think ever for a rest pitch for what Rock Nestor coming in and killing two people but for basically what happened is Seth had br on the ground he had a bunch of stuff piled on top of him takes out a sledgehammer he questions himself the restaurants talk me out of it says like no no no I'm going to do it seth hits the stuff with the sledgehammer and bray and Aref immediately calls for the bell a call for stretcher for Bray which I don't know I go back I've gone back and forth on this because at one hand yes he's absolutely human being a medical attention he does deserve a stretcher but at the same instance he's a Hor- character do you really want horror character stretchered out no but I need to read something before reaching you okay Rod Peta the official art with Bray motionless and Seth clearly doing whatever is going to take to win that match I had to think of the competitor safety and at that moment I did I thought was best and I was getting to that because I was gonNA bring that up next so Monday night they waited until ten thirty to talk about the match and they just sort of highlighted didn't said that seth had one and then that came out like two Wednesday on the new network and social media show the bump you go there's at ten am eastern on Monday mornings on Wednesday mornings the bump is actually decent show different but yeah so they put that out which didn't really help the situation no it's just pissed more you know it's kind of like just just let sleeping dogs lie on this one don't don't try to defend decision because I feel like this was somebody somewhere that made this choice we have to defend our decision they're wrong that's what it honestly feels like he was actually pissed off that the fans were angry at this and so they made this poor man who was the referee in this match like defend his quote unquote choice to stop the match even though it was really his choice and he's like he's taking the brunt of this and we're all pretty much like double finger no no that's not accept into vote because I mean this led to this whole situation has led to people going on the network which I'm sure made them very happy but when on the network and pull photog- and gifts and stills of past hell in the cell matches and pretty much the most violent ory about even though they filled every sledgehammer they did they did they pulled every sledgehammer moment they pulled every gory violent moment from hellenise Allen Trust me there's a bunch of them long blades they did or take a lot of weight were either triple h you're taker but they pulled this and then proceeded as posted to social media as basically like w t f like this okay but this wasn't and I mean you got it from the human perspective Brian is a person but this character the fiend that he is portraying is not no and he is monster from your nightmares and he's relentless and he's unstoppable in the fact that you had seth rollins get him on his back for probably I five five or so minutes and proceeded to do this while seth running around in the rain like that's the whole thing that was really bothersome about this was not that seth got breakdown that's fine that's totally cool like seth is the beast slayer sess should be very difficult to beat it shouldn't have been easy for for Brady to just walk in and kick crap out of Seth but the fact that breaks laid there motionless for ten minutes now or not to miss but like five minutes is seth proceeds to pile ladders and chairs into boxes and everything else on top of him like that's that's what made this really really hard because it's like well wait a minute this is the guy two months ago or whatever at summer slam massacred Fin Baylor just like eviscerated fan valor.

Witches & Saints: Saint Helena
Helena Avelar and Lus Ribeiro on Traditional Astrology
"A first of all we have people from all different different countries not only English people because that's in London but from different countries in the environment the way that we relate to supervisors or to other students. It's really really so we feel at home all the time and we we have access to an amazing library and a amazing library. That's one of the things that I really miss your. You have shelves and Garters shelves only dealing with history of astrology so every critical edition every little lot secure article article that you can imagine it's probably there so it's it's wonderful yeah. I visited in a two thousand two thousand eight and I'm pretty sure that has to be the best library just in the world for astrology books and especially for traditional an older astrology books in critical editions and things of that nature and the way latest organized you can actually you don't need to ask the book to a librarian if you are a student of the institute can just go there to the shelf off and see and they are organized by topic not inauthentic order so you go there to pick one book and you end up with five hundred books because they are all related so it is organized in a way that you can. You can make the best asked of the library. Make the best of your study because of this so it's it's really amazing. If you have the opportunity to go there I would advise you to go because it's an amazing place and you just finished your actually before we get to your PhD dissertations so that's really important because it seemed like for most of the past century there were in the early part of the century suddenly there was academic interest in the history of strategy and there is a growing but relatively small a group of academics who are doing important work making critical editions and doing projects like the CCA G to catalog all of the surviving Greek manuscripts on astrology. You mean the work of the vigils penalty the early ones the L. Yes more like friends. Kumaon and some of those people in the the twentieth century where there was growing academic interest in the history of astrology and then eventually later in the century astrologists started getting interested in traditional astrology eighty but they were kind of like separate groups for a long time that didn't intersect but more recently over the past two decades there have been individual astrologers bruce who have been making an effort to to go back to school and get advanced degrees especially in the history of astrology the history of science in order to sort of merge those two worlds or blends merged that gap between the two groups for instance India Warburg issue too we have dr in Greenbaum. Darden was one of the first I think and I I always I always say that he she broke the ice for us. You know because he she was one of the first the scholars to openly at studies theology in in this at this level so I think you interviewed Dorian sometime ago. Yes she appeared on the podcast a couple of years ago and so she was another person in who like you she was an astrologer. I think she had like a bachelor's or a master's degree in Egyptology but then became an astrologer and she did a a translation of Police Alexandrina sin. I think two thousand one but then eventually in the early two thousands decided to go back to school and get her. PhD She went to the Warburg Institute where I think Charles Burnett was also her adviser and she ended up doing a dissertation on the Domon in Hellenistic astrology. Um so she was really inspiring to to you and seeing what she was able to do was part of maybe what motivated you guys to make that such a big move yourself yes not only she was inspiring but he was actively supportive because we know her personally and she was very very supportive of both of us yeah it is important that we have the study of history in with straight to because in speaking from monastic logistical perspective it's like it was saying there were many groups and there are still certain degree because we have Bach. It's can say buckets of people people who studied specific words specific authors and I'm sorta less orbiting those altars and those lines of bookstores strategy while we in our experience. Oh of course you always go to certain technique or practice altered at you. Prefer that's that's almost natural but one thing that blacks as to have a complete view of astrology of you of the tradition Asian so so that we can see how it'd false how it develops and we can extract them. I think content the basic concept since that of having a basket full of contradictions because people sometimes discuss lots of contradictions strategy and they forget to see what everyone talks about and it's common to everyone and it's that fine line where you have the the column of strategy would we did the consistent tradition the consistent drafting of strategy through times. That's where we should. You'd focus not so much in the little differences sure and it seems like the study of history and culture are kind of go hand in hand with the revival of traditional astrology because in in modern or contemporary astrology you study the techniques and you don't really need a lot contextualisation because it's written in the same period that we're living in now so there's just things you can take for granted that everybody knows except but as soon as you start going back history you have to understand the culture and the time period and everything else and so it seems like that's part of what you felt like you needed to specializes in more or wanted to become more authorities to talk about is just that that process of of understanding the history and the context in which the techniques emerged or were practiced. I think what we value is what we call us logical culture because contemporary very people in most contemporary people. I don't know what they do. I don't know all of them but most when temporary people would just focus as you said in the practice and they don't worry about the way the technique evolved or the way technique was created so what happens is that that opened the space for all sorts of opinion and if you don't know all the technique is generated. If you don't know the rationale of the Dick you just you might have your own opinion or you say l. Because in my own horoscope it works that's the main the main argument it works for me and so this would generate all sorts of what we might call personal astrology for Meat Works and so if you know where the technique comes from if you have this context all the context if you understand the idea you will be able to criticize in a good sense of the word you will be able to criticize and say this. I think it makes sense this. I don't think it makes sense because it's not rooted in the tradition and that is the the main thing in also because probably because I'm a Nestorian but I think it's very important for any kind of practice to understand our developed otherwise you have no route you just you just leaves me thing in the superficial level all things without any substance what we were living in the world people say things without any substance anyway. It sure seems like that's what's drawn. A lot of people to traditional astrology over the past decade is on wanting to go past oftentimes doing modern astrology but hitting a wall in terms of your understanding of the subject and realizing that if you wanted to go deeper into it and wanted to be able to actually synthesize charts or no the reason why you're you're saying certain things that at a certain point you have to go back into the tradition in order to figure some of those things out I think what happened if any I'm talking about historically historically here also but the twentieth century we had the move slow move from tradition and natural escaped from the tradition because of the whole Cultural Movement of the twentieth century and got two point where things get to a level of abstraction which Chad no connection to reality so we have a lot of astrological practices now days that don't have any connection to reality and sometimes not any connection action to strategy itself so most of the time we see people say they're astrologers and so the strategy but they explain astrology Assu of several other systems as tarik psychological several spiritual or something something else or scientifically even and they don't explain this torch by itself and any form of knowledge such as astrology sheet must be able to explain itself. It must have an internal rule which we can follow up on when we have adult or elder and we can't. It's like mathematics comparing it so easy comparison to do if you have a doubt you go for the mathematics rule go for the geometrical the rule that will give you the answer if you're progressing correctly or not and the Saudi lack that for a long time now it's recovering. That's an we. St- we're we're starting to see a nucleus of heart core nucleus of astrology of the doctrine that's coming out again which was completely lost until and we started to have translations and we'll hear speaking in English so we in the English speaking community you there were many translations of texts until two decades ago three decades ago so it they were known and now all we have it and now you had already enough time for that information to mature and to result in in a community. Let's let's say of people develop rankings to digital strategy and have a common language already grown up which is not willing lily. It's not mystic. It's it's not mediaeval. There's already a nucleus with which is common to any tradition in astrology and that's that's where things need to be worked upon its to understand exactly what the nucleus is composed off although we can have of course second deck. Niks that exists in different cultures in different from epochs that's natural but still there is common ground to hold this essential dignities. the goal is of the planets all of that is the nucleus and we can see in any any astrology book anesthesiology prime. We'll have to have that was principles which which are absolutely lacking in most of the things that were written in the twentieth century. You don't have a common ground. You don't have an explanation Ford Meanings of the planets. You don't have an explanation for the aspects or you have an explanation netease outsiders not not like psychology for calling numerology symbolic mythology for example one of my main glitches with with the the rationale of astrology now sometimes now in presentation is mythology you fall back into mythology to justify. Why applied works in a certain way way but we're forgetting that mythology was forged from observations of the planets so we're doing things incorrectly yeah? It's not a a logical God that gives the plant certain quality that the body that God was derived from the observations the planet's actions and a nature so doing it incorrectly you you cannot do it. The process inversely so it's complicated lead and there was also the presumption that that's the way it's always been done and the assumption was projected back into the tradition that mythology has always been and the primary interpretive principle for understanding slender bodies and therefore it's getting projected forward into the discovery of new ones so that's the primary way that they're approaching like new bodies by thinking about the name and the mythology

At the Races With Nick Tammaro
"Churchill getting started would bind with they're the first really too big weekends they also course got the international later in the meet later in the fall and and that brings in some international shippers this woodbine mile just the mile either northern dancer the more you look at it. I thought was was was intriguing and there's plenty of other a lot of stars on the card including Holy Khaleda and pink Loyd. WHO's I I for a horse? That's one like twenty seven in a row. Nobody seems the talk about him or pay much attention to him. Bob Tillers streaking sprinter and here's a streaking sprinter victim Rio depends on where the sprint destination is. I think might Tapei at times but shop racing form a yes to the windows. Definitely Pink Floyd is is really sort of a marvel in terms of how he's performed well routinely I of course needed him to at least be third in this race last year in the contest and finished fifth so the pink floyd stop it will be nowhere near Wreck Stale Ontario and so his chances tomorrow we'll probably increase exponentially. He's in the early. They put the bold venture early on the card actually in fact when I went to the stakes together and put them up Derby Trail Oh. I didn't even look that that early on the card so I didn't even have to go back in fact I don't know if I did go back and put it up but there are a couple couple of very nice horses here including Carlin's honor the Jack Oxley Breezy York good old Yordan approaching half a million dollars for a chiefs would and Stewart Simon you know a lot of your a lot of your local players in the sprint scene but pink Cloyd is now twenty one twenty six and it really was late last year September October that he started to show some some frings signs of tiring and Kinda sputtered out at the end of the year could. Could he be beaten in here. I don't think so no it looks like he's he's back where he needs to be and I don't really know I guess other than Caroline's honor who's supposed to be particularly big threat to him in the spot so he he should get the job done. I mean it's always nice to see good. Horses do Well York than obviously was in much better form coming into this last year having run a good second pink Floyd Royd individual and and that was also during a period of time where pink floyd was having a really hard time getting out of the gate so he's a little ornery for a seven year old gelding and he had a little bit gate trouble really about four or five races in a row going into last year's bold venture he he's not he still not they really particularly the obedient or when it comes to getting out of the gate or being trained for it but he's definitely a little bit better spot with that right now so I think given that he's he's inform and should be sitting right off of the of the pace. If you worked in may be line to the front end. I think he should be okay before we talk about the Canadian the end the grade to which does start the cross country and will incorporate the pebbles and the nightcap at Belmont Nixon thoughts about last week at Belmont. We talked about this Jockey Club Derby and oaks and the Grand Prix. I talked to Andy on Tuesday. The Grand Prix was oddly contest than I thought but some some quick hits on opening the opening salvos at Belmont. I guess guess I'll try and keep it as charitable as possible. Given I took my shots at it last week but I think they played out largely. How we expected decide thought was a pretty impressive winner of the Jockey Club oaks overcoming? I think by all counsel was a pretty negative pace setup and winning is much the best running down Wonderman who I thought probably got a little bit more the run of the race and the American contingent as we expected in that race as well as the Jockey Club Derby were pretty much no shows and it could also be that the American continuing is pretty thin out by now. We'll talk about the pebbles and a little bit but the pebbles is going to be the ninth race for one hundred thousand dollars or more for three year olds fillies on turf going back to June sixth six and that's insane so the ranks of American horses that are ready to go a mile and three eighths early in September. We're really not very not very robust and and that proved out on the lady side and I thought Spanish mission I I actually thought he was totally out of position and thought that he was about to have a Jamie Spencer Special before he was able to overcome it and get the job done so a little bit. I know that the horse was capable of overcoming his writer. I I would imagine he he should be one of the better distant sources that we could potentially see over here next year given that he's going to be off now until the spring and there's just obviously connections that have problems shipping over the Grand Prix North American Jockey Club invitational brought to you by whatever most pretentious name of all time that was one of the most oddly run races I've ever seen first of all. I don't know how the hell everybody knew. Marconi was winning that race for fun and then to watch the riders of both realm and roaming union gather a hold of their horses so strongly almost as if they were waiting for Marconi to catch up and take the lead after he blew the break so that he could go one sixteen flat it was basically sort of the epitome of what we complain about left and right about American American dirt racing right now and you know in this day and age of sort of turf occasion of American racing where everybody points to turf races races are run like turf races. It's almost as if one horse makes the lead all the other guys say okay well. They're the pacesetter we're just GONNA go ahead and sit back and wait for them to come back to us and the majority of the time on the dirt that just doesn't happen even so shockingly Marconi was able to set a pedestrian pace and and went on with it and I I obviously would not have been a big fan of his at the price he went off often. We talked about how it looked like a bit more competitive race on paper the other todd pletcher trainee your to blame. I thought ran pretty well. He was able to stop the pace on the inside but you know I don't y horse like roaming union was in there if he wasn't GonNa GonNa contest the pace especially given that he's from connections like Michelle Navin who generally have a pretty decent idea how to win dirt racist so that was is a little bit of a head scratcher. you know look my personal opinion is that if there's any thought given to this turf triple. I really hope that same amount of money is committed to a dirt program and trying trying to incentivize horsemen to get there and run on dirt more frequently really try and build up the claiming ranks again because it's kind of embarrassing through the first three days of racing. I'm I'm sorry through the first three days of Racing Belmont there were seventy eight horses total entered to run on dirt and there are over seventy eight horses enter to run dirt in the first day at Churchill so I if the same number number of races and and that's that's not good. That's a big big problem that creates a big problem in the winter so that's my hope for it as it is. I guess we'll see probably a little bit better from Spanish mission in the Diese Lisa next year well we turn to Belmont today and into the weekend a couple of very good maiden races actually as part of that card and maybe we'll touch on them but let's let's look at the cross country pick five and it is comprised of of the three three of the stakes would bind the Canadian the mile and the northern dancer that you know you the top of your head. You wouldn't have thought it the three of them were as complex as actually I think they are and then the pebbles and the turf sprint claiming nightcap the eleventh at Belmont so let's start with the Canadian you know this is an interesting field the and really they'll competition. Idea should probably go off a pretty solid favorite. I don't really see how tactically you could make a real stand with her and she's a horseshoe. Obviously needs to lay back and make one run and you know those types generally at the mercy of the pace and this race does not look like it's going to have really any pace speak of so so she's going to have to overcome that now. I will say that you'll Rosario getting back on board to me feels like a very good thing. It does seem like she's just a little bit better horse when he's John Her but now the flip side of that is that we know Joel style. He's GonNa take her back and let her make one run so I mean they're they're going to. There's going to have to be some pace in here that you can't really foresee and I guess the hope is that Dixie moon and or starship do believe maybe show a little bit more speed than they have before. That's if you're back competition of ideas with any great fervor because obviously what this is shaping up as a situation where Holy Helena has a big tactical advantage on the other favorite and and she's been effective at Woodbine in the past. You look good winning the dance smartly last time Jimmy was giving a little bit of time since and I think she's a horse that that will really get the run of the race and and that's GonNa make her toffee. This could be a situation where on your your pick five. You're really leaning on those two pretty heavily and maybe you could give a little bit of a nod holy Helena on one one more additional ticket. I did want to try and make a case for to Riga and my hope is the Tyler Galileo. Maybe a little bit more aggressive with her than Johnny. Velazquez was was last time he finished just length and a half behind the competition of ideas did get into a little bit of trouble amazingly. She got into trouble in the three-horse rates which it happens of course and with a little bit cleaner run maybe second off the off the layoff off the ship in we can see some improvement grim oceans been a little the little laid back with her she she ran on July twentieth didn't work until August thirty first but might be one of those horses that can stay fit without doing that. I I'm always very very in tune and was looking at his horses in these kind of scenarios as they they generally overperform relative to their odds so I'm GonNa go ahead and include Theresa's well the and will include could starship jubilee more than likely those two has backups because I think they each offers some appeal at what should be better prices than the two chalks should note that ah Jimmy Jerkins after sending Holy Elena opt for the dance smartly basically is as left her there and oh my Gosh the stronach trainer but my Woodbine what is yes thank you Mike Doyle. Mike Doyle has been handling and Jimmy is on TV with seth deny after after precision is one and he told the story about Jimmy said he got the notification is it is stable mail all that Holy Helena had worked Labor Day weekend and so gets the notice he opens it up and Airy Jerry Sees Holy Elena six longs one eleven and three Jimmy said got on the phone to this is Mike what's going on up there and he said I really don't worry though or she did it easy. Did it easy the track was the polly was slick. It was cold or whatever yeah what eleven at three and you know what I did. I brought up with Jimmy that great story that is his father told about Bo purple and going out to Hawthorn for the Hawthorne Gold Cup on Tuesday the race as was Saturday and on Tuesday he gets a call from a Chicago sportswriter and said Jerkins. I wanted to ask you for comment about outvote purples work and said what about it. He says well he he he went a mile in one thirty. Two and three Korea broke the track record or mile. I think he went to violent at eight and broke the track record. What what forty seven forty six shades or something and and and Jerkin said you know? I'm sure he'll be fine and sure enough. He went out and won the Gold Cup but that was funny. One one eleven and three
Sherlock Holmes, Millie Bobby Brown And Henry Cavill discussed on /Film Daily
"New story actually just broke that Henry Cavill, and Millie Bobby Brown had been cast in a Sherlock Holmes spin off the is that what it is h that's pretty accurate. This is a film called ino- la- homes, that's going to be under legendary and space off of the Nancy Springer children's book series, the Nola homes mysteries, which follows Sherlock and Mike, my coughed homes younger sister, ino LA, so this, I guess, technically the technical word would be spinoff, because it's not Sherlock Holmes story. It's about the younger character played by Millie, Bobby Brown, Henry Cavill, will be playing the famous Sherlock Holmes. There's no news on who'd be playing my cross. But Helena, Bonham Carter will be on board to play. Ino- le's mother. And I guess, by extent sherlock's mother, maybe they're from different Mosey. I don't really know much about this series but the series became came around I with the two thousand six book, the case of McCain, missing marquess, and has covered six novels, which all revolve around mysteries investigated by Inova. We're the second. So if this isn't ridden by Arthur Conan dill is this actual canon or Sherlock Holmes is that public domain, apparently Sherlock Holmes is in public domain, the copyright for Conan, Doyle's works expired in the UK, and Canada, at end of nineteen eighty was again, ninety six but expired again at the end of two thousand and all of his books are now in public domain, in those territories in the US everything before ninety twenty three are in public domain, which explains why there are just so many Sherlock Holmes adaptations and remakes and
Movie remakes: the good, the bad and the ugly
"We look at remakes the good the bad, the ugly possibly some other surprises. Here is co host and actor Doug Hutchison, Doug, how's it going today? How are you, my friend? All right there. I'm good. I'm ready. I'm poised, I'm doing really, well, thanks for asking. And I'm excited about this topic movie remakes, I believe it was inspired, if I'm correct me if I'm wrong. But and our last show, we were talking our theme was movies about loss and grief surrender and one of my on the list was movie called pet cemetery based on the Stephen King novel, and I really enjoyed the rigid version, and then found out, they were making twenty nineteen version, which just came out, which I. Haven't seen, but I started lamenting about remakes and questioning the validity of remaking movies that are already made, you know, impeccably, so why remake them. So I think that spurred this topic on, but I just wanted to preface it this by saying that we call this remakes the good the bad and the ugly. But in my research, I actually surprised myself because I found that I actually started liking a lot of the remakes that was digging up the ones that I had seen. And so my list actually has more smiley Osman Ali faces on it. So I guess my list my list is not the good the bad nucleus that the good. I one ugly, just a mention at the very end just for the heck. But anyway, I was wrong. I just gotta say that. I'm gonna confess it. I was wrong. I think there is validity in making certain remakes and I have enjoyed as you'll see a handful of them. Many of us in smiley face by them. And I'm gonna tell you mine are just the opposite might have a frown. After after off your conversation. Holly told you I was looking at the positive and the bright side of everything. I'm gonna try and five five down. So. Great minor five thumbs up years or five down mice, the glasses have full years. At the half full once you're five. Okay, so in, in no sense of order whatsoever, by the way of priority. One of the remakes, actually really enjoyed is Tim Burton's Alice wonderland twenty ten. The original versions, of course, there, were it was nineteen fifty one there was a version of wonderland. And then there was a TV movie version in nineteen eighty five Tim Burton cast as the often does that amazing cast Johnny Depp. He's always cast in depth. So debt plays the mad Hatter Tim Burton's wife, who I've heard they possibly getting divorced. I think I read this the other day which is unfortunate, but it's life and relationship I suppose. Helena, Bonham Carter? It plays the Queen of hearts, young actress by the name of mea was the cow seat in Australian actress plays Alice Crispin Glover plays the knave of hearts. And I can say is in a nutshell Tim Burton. I mean. Filmmaking God or what move? He's actually come down from the mount filmmaking Olympics to give us his gifts or he's made a pact with the devil, because everything this man touches to me turns into gold and his vision, his, his special effects, his whole take on his movies are just unbelievably original income Pele. I loved him Burton as you do. And so Alison wonderland twenty ten Tim Burton's version. I loved it Coleman who call. I'm going to do research on the internet. I'm see anywhere. You came from a good place for that. It's great for me. Number five linking. Said, good things, these are not in order, because this might have been number one for me, the Halloween remakes, specifically by rob zombie. Who's the singer slash director? People that absolutely are in love with his movies. I find him to be one of the I hate shitting by hate it. It's not my style. Rob zombies, Halloween movies are among some of the worst I've ever seen, but not just Halloween. He directed. Oh shit. What are those movies he directed? All other coal classics God. How come I mean? Blinded, I loved that he made it wasn't a remake, but devils reach, I'm not gonna want a lot of people like that movie I do not. I, I don't like rob zombie style. He, he was on Howard Stern bragging on how quickly he shoots movies and I'm gonna know shit. It shows like it's like. Yeah, this looks like something you shot overnight, like it's I should be more friendly towards Massachusetts. Born director. I dunno house thousand corpses. Grind house at devil's rejects. I, I am not a fan of especially the Halloween. It's just he's not as cute as thinks he's on his creative as he thinks he is the movies, look like even shop quickly. There's there. I just find him highly unappealing I to tell you, I've had two interviews, one with another podcast host. Absolutely loved them. Shame on you for saying that. And then I had on the director of directed. I'm not gonna mention what he directed, but he dragged my favorite horror movies, and I said, I'm going to tell you I love this. I compare this something like rob zombie Halloween. I said, I'm not really a fan. He goes robs a friend. I'm like, oh, sorry. Okay. I should have said that. But I'm just I'm just not fan of rob zombie Halloween. And that doesn't even case into account. How awesome the original Halloween movies are even the last one they came out this past year with with. What's your name plays the lead in the Halloween movie stuck? My brain is out to lunch today. Gene, Jamie Curtis. Jamie Lee Curtis. Again, of course. Rijo. Yeah. And that was directed by the latest one when she was in. It wasn't directed by her. It was okay. But completely unnecessary leave the ones that came out the originals alone, their final even the one two three I love them. But yeah, that's how I lick never been touched again. And you and I have talked about the Halloween mask ironically whose face that is. And I hope I hope you believe me now it's face. I did not do any research because I think maybe just slipped yourself a little bit of acid or I don't know some kind of drug or something because that's crazy. I do not I because if I think about that, and I watched Halloween again, what my going to be
