"What's, what's the beat of this story? What's the meaning? What's the, what's the library would have this guy, we have to have some kind where you're like, what's the line with Willis? That's, you know what you're talking about, what you're talking about Willis and like they, the whole almost the episode leads up to that. Now, that I've been watching. Thank you again. Big Bang Theory. There are certain things that you're waiting for certain characters. Say something like it was single and like, and if sometimes dead, It isn't that they met that to happen, that they just threw it out there and like there were such a response to it. It's like a single would somehow like don't have a cow man from The Simpsons or something like that. I don't think that they crafted that too because they killed Kenny. Exactly. And the, you know, there's going to be repetition of that but you didn't know it would catch on as much as they did. So it's very cool. What we just said about, we don't like Comics necessarily that have repetition in their acts. It's okay. When they're good at that, they have a certain line that they use more than once in their act because it's a great Capper, it's a great life, the nail they drive in to make this joke memorable or something like that, you know? So the people are branding, they're making themselves memorable, they want to lie to be associated with. So when you think of, I don't know, I'm back in the day or Bill Cosby, for instance, you know, when it was when it was, he was allowed to be listened to he had. Why is there era Noah? Right. And so, you know things, yeah, we're people like wage. When you get when a star is walking on the street and they have people yelling their favorite line at them, that's Triumph. They know that that penetrated so much, you know what I mean? There's a YouTube, I've seen a little bit Gina watches, he just drives around the streets and he'll yell out the window. A song, lyric two, people and record to see if they yelled the next line down. Now see that's very cool. Exactly where we go. I'm glad you mentioned, Big Bang because I've got a revelation I had I want to talk to you about, we'll do it next week. It can wake up song about Big Bang and what it is and why it was popular. I had a revelation about that and a comparison against something else. So, cool. I think it'll be an interesting discussion with the preview the foreshadowing, remember that for next week, cuz we've done that, you want to talk about this next week. And then there's a ever-growing floral. I do want to talk about Thursday. I got a really good. Okay, thing for that. So, very good. So, we'll see you on Friday night and we'll see, you know, depending on what happens over the weekend. Maybe we'll take Tuesday off, maybe not, we've been able off. Okay. As always a pleasure have a great weekend and supposed to be hot today so hiding the cool. All right, well you can't go mow. Yeah. Okay.

"That even if you're not a novelist or a screenwriter, that the nerd brain would probably enjoy it because it's not all about analyzing. It's not the creative, it's not even the pros and the grammer, it's the analysis of the story itself and it's right the rest of the stuff you fit into their, even a Highlander. You know, the first part at Star Wars is always the big example by the way, but in Highlander the, the first thing they do is they show them at a game like or the wrestling match and then there's that the battle. So, the game is the normal world that he's in, but so is the battle, that's his normal World underneath the dog. I would be underneath it is indeed exactly that both literally and figuratively. Exactly. Exactly. And almost love that opening scene where you start off like looking out the huge stadium and then the camera does this thing off to school. The rentals of his face? It's like out of all these ten thousand people. This is a guy you're going to pay attention to watching the game, kind of window, his senses are picking up on the ticketing. That's exactly right. In fact, it's another tell me how many things you now see in the world that are called the blanketing. It's no. It's a spring soaring, it the pollinating and it's the home from the quickening is where all those things came from. It changed the vocabulary of the World by having that cool term come to exist. I love movies like that. That they have this incredible wage, you know, it's a huge impact on our culture in with the horrible second movie, you think of something a while back and man dead. I'm almost ashamed to admit this. But you know, in the prequel movies of Star Wars, where Obi-Wan fights Grievous, he jumps off wage at lizard creature and lands in the middle of all those droids and stuff. Yes! Hello there. And it's amazing. And my kids, quote it. And it's, you know, just my, oh, you're my kids. Go hello there. Exactly. That's also, the very first thing. Alec Guinness said in the first movie, so they have their own continuity in the movies. That's very cool. Yeah, that's so brilliant. I never picked up on that until a couple of years ago actually, but I'm like, that's perfect. It connects the characters, you know? Absolutely. Yeah. I love math when, when do you see that in the course of? I don't know, a whole bunch of stuff here. They people are aware that they're trying to create beings nowadays. Not only of course, and the combination of photo plus tax. But even just when they wage, Always had. What's the characteristic line of a character on Saturday Night Live? They were always looking for that, you know, bear with me, not, you know what I mean. They were very good at the early Embrace of. If we can get a phrase that becomes part of the vocabulary of America, we, we would one that kind of thing. And so you'll, you'll see like that when you see shows about rich rooms, like Garry Shandling show or 30 Rock or something like that, they will talk in this same way of..

"You know, I can see alternate me damned, you know, their, their, their sons and daughters on their knee and, and just, yo, guess that taking them from the hikes and taking them to the zoo. And they'll know every animal, they can name every dinosaur and they'll be like, the first time they beat me at chess. It'll be like, oh, wow. How cool is this? My kid is this good? Following used to beat me at some of the card games, even when I was actually trying. I'm like, this is so, okay, so okay, maybe this is it. So this leads into something else. I want to talk about. So thinking about the Highlander movie, the one scene where he's fighting that guy in the alley and then the crazy Marine shows up with the gun and shoved them and and then he steals the car and takes the grandma for, right? And she's screaming and suddenly she ends up on the hood. I'm like, wait a second. I know end up on the good wage. Like it of all, why is that scene like 45 minutes long or something that's just on forever and I think it's closed the movie down, but bringing that Marine into it. I thought that was a mistake because he just suddenly showed up and he has a gun and we're supposed to go. Oh man, crazy Marine. That's an example of how to improve it is unique character earlier in the show. So you have some oh he's going to have a conflict, you know what I'm saying? Okay and I just I swear there was some some foreshadowing. They showed the city was under siege and that there were people that were determined to not be the one that gets killed by the guy. The cops were really perfect as these like kind of like real cops and so they you know they're they're trying to figure out what's going on and like in this world of machine guns back, then to work really and guns and stuff like that. Someone gets killed with the sword and they're like what the hell? That's great. I'm here, you know. Yeah, there's there's a great scene with like, one of the like a maybe a hobo bum on the street and Ruby. It's a the guy who runs the newsstand, he's like reading the newspaper about how long are making no Headway. It's like what do incompetent mean? You know, what do you mean? Yeah, that movies that do that. That find a way in the middle of all this tension, building at home or in danger, they have those laughs. They have that ability to break. So you get, you get to breathe a little bit and, and step back and then. So, it's more of a roller coaster ride instead of this. This clenching. Perpetual nothing but danger. That was one of the first movies. I remember being that has Silver Streak were both really good at. Well, there's really danger going up but there's really good laughs here as well..

The Most Reliable Used Cars

"So i've had an obsession forever about why buying a used vehicle is so much better for your wallet than buying new. There are a lot of people who love new vehicle smell. They want that new vehicle and if it works for you financially. That's fine but for most people buying used is gonna be a much better choice but there are people like a vehicle that feels new. And that's why to me. The compromise has been historically a three model year old vehicle. So right now it'd would be twenty eighteen because the twenty one or what out on dealer lots now so when you buy a vehicle. That's three years old. As a general back of the envelope rule it will have lost roughly a third of its value some models substantially more than that others a little less but generally about a third of the value has been wiped out in those first three years even though the life of the vehicle is so today with vehicles running quarter million miles Not at all unusual. That's like normal now where it used to be hundred thousand miles pretty much. The expected reliable life span of a vehicle but vehicles vary a lot and quality and consumer reports has put out a recommended list of bike category. The most reliable vehicles you can buy depending on size. And i want to start with the most popular part of the vehicle market and these are the most reliable three-year-old suv's based on consumer reports deep dive research and again. These are all twenty eight teens. The honda cr v. honda hr v. The hyundai kona alexis annex the mazda. Five and the toyota highlander. So if you're interested in an suv.

Prius is on there and the volkswagen beetle so The only american owned company that made the list was chevy bolt but most of these other vehicles are actually manufactured in north america. Even if they're owned by quote unquote foreign automakers that a vehicle. That's very reliable. Starting you're looking at a vehicle that's very reliable is key but not enough.

A Man of Wealth of Taste

"The quest for immortality the urge to escape the inevitability of death has long been a preoccupation for us as evidenced by the ancient sumerian poem the epic of gilgamesh the oldest example of written literature known today in the poem written sometime around eighteen hundred bc in mesopotamia. The titular gilgamesh part hero part. Arrogant demi-god undertakes nordic Mission to find the secret to immortality ought to being confronted by the inevitability of his own death though we might not be demigods like gilgamesh his desperate refusal to accept the inevitability of his fate is a deeply human one and something that many of us can sympathize with whether we elect to place our hopes in the promises of religious teachers or in the invention and imagination of our leading bio gerontologist those that studied the mechanics of aging throughout many of us. Who haven't contemplated the possibility of existing forever in one form or another however although some of those may want for it being mortal israeli portrayed as something desirable and at the very least. There's something that can only be achieved at a great cost from the burdens of connor macleod in his pursuit to become the only remaining highlander to the pitiful efforts of melmeth the wanderer to convince another soul to take on his pact with the devil in return for another one hundred fifty years of life. In fact we take great pains to dissuade ourselves from wanting it. Perhaps this is simply to provide some comfort in the face of such a futile desire. But it doesn't stop us trying back in october this year. A team led by tel aviv. University professor shy f ratty published the results of an extraordinary study in the journal aging study to determine the effect of pure oxygen on the aging process involved placing thirty five adults over the age of sixty four in a hyperbaric chamber and giving them pure oxygen for ninety minutes a day five days a week over the course of three months through this process of frats team found they were able to successfully limit the build-up of senescent cells in the body cells. The today's to the point where they can no longer replicate leaving the body. Susceptible to many age related diseases incredibly not only to this delay the aging process but actually reversed it. Aubrey de grey. One of the best known by. Oh gerontologist has long insisted that medical technology will one day allow us to control the aging process. Even making the stunning claim this back.

Travel to Bosnia

"Welcome to the amateur traveler I'm your host Chris Christensen? Let's talk about Bosnia. I like to welcome to the show. Canaan Charter, which who is coming from Bosnia and his coming to us from highlander adventures dot, be and has come to talk to us about Bosnia Herzegovina. Canaan welcome to the show. Thank you very much happy to be here excellent and for people who can't find Bosnia and Herzegovina on a map. Where are we talking about? Well. Everyone knows how to find Italy. It's a big shoe ships country. You have a boot-shaped country, so just go to the right side across the Atlantic Sea and we are right there. Well and your neighbor of Croatia. Bosnia you know goes around like little crescent moon. knoll on the West and south, and then these we have Serbia and southeast Montenegro. I to address. You're interested in making sure that people understand that. If they remember news about Bosnia, they may be remembering news from twenty thirty years ago when Bosnia was going through. A, war that's done, and that's been done now for quite a long time there there are people who are out in the working world who don't remember that and it's a wonderful place to go I. Want to say that I was anxious to do this show because we haven't done a show on Bosnia for a long time. And since then I have been to the country and loved it. So why should someone go to Bosnia Herzegovina? Well, there is a lot of reasons depending what you're interested in now. Bosnia is very complex country, but extremely small size of Pennsylvania, but inside. You have so much for the adventure seekers. There are so many adventure opportunities from Whitewater. Rafting canyoning to paragliding hiking is spectacular, and then if you're into history, we say that we have much more history than we can handle. Different Than Empires were here. We like to say where the crossroads or that where the meeting between the East and the West. Culturally very complex country, and also religiously we have Muslims, we have the Orthodox Christians, and we have Catholics with three big groups. Of course there's the Jewish community here which has been here since they were thrown out of Spain after Kista, so for five hundred years, all of these make this crazy, crazy and beautiful mix that very interesting for foreigners to see because inside I will for example and. And in many other cities in Bosnia, you can pined mosque Docs Church Catholic, Church and a synagogue literally in two hundred meter radius, and it's been like that for five hundred years while inside I will because that's how will the city is? And all of a Bosnia and we're very proud of that architecturally very different from anything else you can find in Europe you're GonNa, find this mix of. Of European styles as well as the optimum styles and a lot of course, local Bosnian styles in all of that mixed together will like to say that we are a Bosnian pots. That's one dish that we have. It's cooked in a big pot with a lot of things, mixed sight, and that's Bosnia a lot of things mixed, and it works perfectly. An Indian taste is fantastic why you should. Should visit Bosnian well. Whatever you choose. You're GONNA love it. If you're into history too much of it, you're into nature. It's absolutely stunning. It's fantastic, magic Pennsylvania, and then put inside the Rockies Grand Canyon Inca trail at a lot of other things as well a bit of New Zealand as well. We just like seaside. We have twenty four kilometers of seaside, so that's one thing with them have. And then, of course, for actually learning history or getting certain messages, let's say about life about history. How people live together or how they don't like each other, because while we had a lot of wars, let's especially in the last two hundred years. There's a lot of lessons that you can learn in Boston. Let's say war tourism doctors is now very big part of tourism in in Bosnia so if you want to learn about that, we are definitely to come to see what happens. If you don't defeat fascism, like most of Europe defeated off the Second World War and it actually shows how life can be both good and the bat also if you want to visit a place. which is completely different than rest of the Europe and very relaxed very laid back with fantastic food, most at a lot of reasons I think.

"Log into your Netflix account and you will see a new category this week the black lives matter collection Amazon prime and HBO are also featuring black TV and film making at the same time HBO Max has pulled from its library the classic film gone with the wind until it can give audiences context on the movie on how it romanticizes slavery in the south during the civil war now all these entertainment companies and plenty more have expressed solidarity with black lives matter and they're highlighting a lot of good shows also some not so good shows for some guidance I want to bring in NPR's pop culture critic Linda Holmes Highlander hi and our TV critic Eric deggans Herrick Hey let's start with one movie that had shot to a lot of people's viewing here is it just the help from twenty eleven and then came this huge backlash Linda I'm gonna throw this to you first because I know you just wrote a column about the movie and and some of the problematic elements that prompted this backlash yeah the help is a film about black maids in Mississippi in nineteen sixty three but it sees their story very much through the eyes and the experiences of a young white woman played by Emma stone who decides to write a book about them and it's very much about her as the person who saves them and help them out that's a classic Hollywood trope of the white savior and you know file a Davis who plays able in one of the maids has talked about this herself and said she regrets doing the film because of that focus on the white character rather than on the maids huh to the point about problematic elements of of some of the show's Erica each item will be honest and say I grew up watching and loving gone with the wind I imagine there are a lot of people out there thinking of a TV show or film that they have loved and thinking there's actually some pretty problematic characters and storylines and there it is a critic how do you think about this one of the things I always recommend is paying attention to how characters of color are treated by the story line are they fully realized characters with their own goals with their own values or are they constantly sacrificing themselves in order to aid a white protagonist I think that Linda makes a great point in her column where she talks about how the black maids and they help are constantly risking their jobs and their lives to help this white protagonists who just wants to like write a book about them and and and the question is always you know what are black characters are characters of color are doing for themselves do they seem like a collection of stereotypes or do they seem like authentic people who may have flaws are they like there to move the story along what do they really have agency and finally with gone with the wind you know what idolizes the antebellum south and it idolizes the south that was enslaving black people you know what what is the story ultimately saying is good and what is it saying that's negative and does that really line up with your values as if you were you have to constantly ask yourself these things Linda to Eric's point about that we should be aware as we watch black characters on screen are they authentic characters are they fully realized characters what are some things you would recommend viewers look for well I what I want to say first that I think if you're a white person like I am who who is trying to kind of do better and understand better what you watch is always going to be just a compliment to whatever real work you're doing watching a movie is not enough of course and that's why in a lot of ways what I recommend to people and I hope people do it's just change persistently consistently durably change the mix of creative voices that you are listening to and that you are giving your eyeballs too and not only when they are specifically addressing race so you know watch makayla Cole's new HBO show which is called I may destroy you if you're looking for something that's new if you want to go a little older and a little more mellow one of my favorite romances as the two thousand found love in basketball it matters a lot just what you're putting into your own eyes as far as representations of people I think it can be really hard to undo repeated exposures to something with conscious explanations of it I I I would push back against one element of that and say that I do think that one reason why people may have felt more comfortable voting for a black man to be president is because we saw a black man as president on both the hit TV show twenty four and the popular movie deep impact and so I do think that what we allow characters of color to do in film and TV shows expands our idea of what we may accept people of color doing in real life Linda give us a recommendation or to Eric did you want to weigh in here what what would do you recommend that people watch if we are trying to

Twenty sixty five with a two thirds of the Earth's ozone layer gone. We'd have a permanent ozone hole over the Antarctic and the Arctic and UV radiation in mid-latitudes cities like Washington DC would be enough to give you a sunburn in a mere five minutes of exposure. Whoa DNA MUTATING UV levels would be up six hundred and fifty percent Greatly increase in cancer rates and impacting numerous organisms. Yeah I imagine that would that would really hurt the environment and ecosystems to any and indeed. This is this is the the sort of DYSTOPIA and world week. We kinda see reflected in in highlander. Too you know and the fear of this world right and yet somehow humanity avoided this right. As if a PSYCHIC FRENCH SCOTSMAN UNIFIED OUR MINDS In seventy countries come together in an act the Montreal Protocol which is what happened in one thousand nine hundred eighty six mind you. They year that highlander. One K now oh absolutely no connection between the two but it did occur in Nineteen ninety-six so there actually was a massive effort kind of light. Connor Macleod's shield except instead of putting a barrier in place. What they were trying to do was stop. Harming the ozone layer to begin with right. The scientists presented the case. And they said look. Here's the evidence in it is it. Cfc's that are doing it if we stop producing CFC's or at least you know tightened down a regulations of CFC's we can stop this process and so they set some goals Reduced CFC production by twenty percent by ninety three fifty percent by ninety eight and the targets were subsequently strengthened banning the worst CFC offenders by nineteen ninety-six and stiffly regulating them and as it stands today. The ozone layer is recovering and should fully recover by twenty sixty five. Yeah and I should point. We're actually now seeing direct evidence of the of the recovery of the ozone layer hole over the Antarctic like I was looking at a twenty eighteen. Nasa press release about this direct evidence and there was a measuring instrument called the microwave. Limb Sounder MLS ABOARD THE AURA satellite. That was used to measure ozone depletion levels and Or measure chlorine and it showed from two thousand five to twenty eighteen. There was a net of about twenty percent reduction of Ozone Depletion. So it is actually recovering. Things are getting better and we know this directly now. Yeah I mean it's ultimately an inspiring success story. It's a you know it's not one to one with the problem of human caused climate change but it demonstrates our potential to enact change based on our on sound scientific consensus to to change the way we're approaching the world to cut back on what we're doing to it and and see some recovery take place like it. It can be done people. We've done it before it just makes me worry. What would have happened if there had been as much money behind? Attacking that scientific consensus as there is on the consensus about climate. Change Right. Yeah or if it had been Politicized to the extent that That climate change has has unfortunately been politicized. You'd be living in a world of hurt right now. Yeah all right so so speaking of world hurt okay so all of this the squares redder nicely with what we see in. Highlander to okay You know again. It was this. The story emerged from this time of great concern over the Ozone Layer. You can see where the idea for. The movie came from exactly so because you know faced with environmental challenges. Connor decided to do something about it. Partially preventing the DYSTOPIA ENVISION. We related earlier and at the same time the movie deals with the self healing nature of the Ozone Layer. Because there's this whole We didn't even really get into this. That there's a there. Some freedom fighters who believed that the shield corporation doesn't need to exist anymore. The ozone layer is fixed itself and then the shields are just keeping us in this permanent nor world for no reason and and it turns out that that's the case right. The she'll corporation is evil now and must be stopped like Virginia. Madsen plays a scientist and ECO terrorist. Who BELIEVES THAT? The ozone levels are normal and that we need we no longer need the shield. Yeah so it would seem that. Connor also managed to ban. Cfc's as well as creating this artificial shield but but but it did make new wonder. What could we do with an artificial ozone layer? Like what sort of is there any research out there about about how we might fix it? If anything like the shield that we see in highlander to In scientific literature well I mean you see this kind of reaction to certain like You often hear people say about climate change like well. It would just be too hard to get people to stop burning fossil fuels and releasing all this carbon into the atmosphere. What we need to do instead. Focus all of our scientific efforts on coming up with ways to like counteract climate change. Here's Geo hacking scheme I would say based on what I've read. Do not put all your hope in this. Like if you want a good way to deal with the climate change issue you should be thinking about reducing emissions not depending on some savior technology to come along and Geo engineer the world back to good health and yet knowing knowing scientists. I figured well somebody has surely. Surely somebody presented some sort of Geo hacking measure for ozone layer depletion. Why stop cutting ourselves when we can inventor really good band aid well you know? I mean they'll certainly there's a value in sort of in in the scientific exploration of all measures as well. Yeah having having a plan. B. is worthwhile so one hundred around and I found the work of a a Russian physicist by the name of Alexander G- AVEC born nineteen thirty presumably still alive based on what I could gather and he proposed This idea in nineteen eighty The the idea of of generating an artificial ozone layer or AEL L. as refers to it but in later papers he refers to it as an artificially. I analyzed region or an air. These an interesting guy. He argued That among the various high energy proposals to deal with ozone layer loss quote. The most promising approach is connected with the creation of an artificial ionized region in the atmosphere by microwave discharges. Oh okay well. That's funny because in the movie you see like a big pyramid like shooting some beam of energy the sky. It doesn't say what that is presumably could be. Microwaves visible in the movie and microwaves wouldn't be visible. Yeah what I'm about to explain here. D- does not match up with what we see in the film. But you can see where for instance the screen writer might have read about. It like might have read something and say Popular Science Like a blurb about this paper and then use that in the screenplay So he wrote about numerous times during his career and In even carry out a few experiments to sort of present how it would work And he argues that it's possible in principle but would be difficult and require a lot more development certainly to reach the level that we could actually counter of ozone depletion But the basic idea here behind behind his his his notion is that ozone normally forms in the stratosphere via the combination of atomic oxygen with molecular oxygen by solar radiation which of course also destroys a but basically the solar radiation causes a triple collision And so you're AVEC proposed beefing up ozone creation by the use of Microwave Radiation. And he points out that there are three key reasons to depend on. Microwaves in this kind of scenario. First of all the energy can be transferred for considerable distances in the air almost without losses. Because you're GONNA WANNA beam it up to the stratosphere To the energy can be focused in the given region of the atmosphere to achieve the necessary effect and then three different regimes of the microwave source can be used which gives the opportunity to achieve the necessary optimum conditions so the idea here is to create an artificially ionized region or air rather than a shield. And while you localize the effect you know point out to pointing at a particular area in the stratosphere the ozone you create within spread around due to wins and turbulent diffusion up in the stratosphere so he continued to to to work on this idea. Well up into the two thousand so It's it's again as far as I understand it. In and certainly a lot of the paper I was looking at consider equations right and you know breakdowns of what's happening Would be happening happening at a molecular level but Are you saying that you're not an atmospheric physicist? Yeah Oh sorry In this discussion of highlander too I have to reveal that but But yeah basically ideas that this would be a way to produce more open to make up for ozone depletion and he makes what seems to be a strong case that that we could conceivably do it. You can certainly see the kind of Thinking that would lead to this contingency. I'm glad we didn't have to depend on this exactly. Yeah we're very fortunate that we put in place protocols to just allow the atmosphere or the the ozone layer to fix itself. Naturally I mean one. Reason is maybe. It's just a highlander to working on my brain but I always do worry about all. These proposed massive GEO engineering projects. That say we're going to do. Xyz with Earth's atmosphere like the idea of Counteracting climate change by injecting sulfate particles into the atmosphere or something like that to reflect You know I. I don't know what. The scientific consensus is on how effective that would actually be or or whether it's a good idea I tend to suspect doesn't have a lot of support but just the idea of trying things like that on the one earth. We have seems very scary absolutely now at the same time if we if we could do something like the shield that we see in highlander to that would of course be tremendously helpful especially as we consider the possibility of one day Sending people to other worlds setting up Colonies there like if you if you had the technology to create a radiation blocking shield. Install that thing on Mars that thing on the moon. Install it anywhere you need to Try and house people off the planet. Yeah have like a portable shield kit that goes with you wherever you go. Yeah so I in that regard. This SCI FI SCIFI technology always has a lot of of advantages right. Because you don't actually have to develop it right. It's just it's there it's ready to go but But certainly if we could if we could pull something off like we see in the film it would. It would be tremendously useful to say nothing of hover boards which are also in highlander to always wonder about like what is the what is the cost benefit thing of of talking a lot about like you know. Geo Engineering Contingencies for what we've got some massive environmental problem that that could really harm human human civilization If we don't stop doing X. and meanwhile we've got some people working on wising. Maybe possibly wide could protect us. If we don't stop doing acts does talking about the potential Geo engineering solution. Or whatever like reduce people's incentive to say stop producing chlorofluorocarbons or stop producing carbon emissions. I don't know the answer. Well I don't know I'm always. I'm continually perplexed by this because it's it's one of these things where you see humanity's potential confounding potential to both refuse to change.

This'll be something that will discuss later on a little more depth because one of the ideas here is that what? What does connor do with the prize right? So he's got this great power and wisdom after cutting off all the other Zeiss Zeist and heads, and we find out that they are from Zeiss the heads. What does he do with it? Well? Apparently, he becomes like an atmospheric or Geo. Of some kind, yeah, or at least he uses his psychic powers to connect important people who are and Yeah, he ends up bringing them together to solve the problem of earth's depleted ozone layer. And ends up a found founding the shield corporation, which creates these enormous machines that beam some sort of the energy up into the stratosphere in create an artificial ozone layer of source like an energy layer protects the earth from UV rays. Makes everything makes the whole world like Permanent Casa? Blanca climate? So everything is dark and everything sweaty everywhere all over the earth. It's a perfect way to justify your like dark and war sets. Yeah, and it does create this. You can see where they were going with this idea of like connors, the was the savior, but now he's he's vilified, you know. which is a an interesting troch sometimes rolled. Shades of that certainly in in the Dune, Saga. But yeah, so now he's this guy that people curse, because yeah, you save the planet from from its. It's ozone problem, but then replaced it with this weird thing. Nobody likes I. Hate Sweating. I'd rather be burned alive by UV, rays. And so that's. Why War World that the the bulk of highlander to deals with okay well now that we've described perhaps the most awesome bad movie of all time like it, would you say for me? It's like a top five all time. Bad film yet I great, and we don't even have time to get into all the ways that it is is bad in all the. The ways that it's it's. It's ultimately fun to watch, but but yeah at the end of the day. It's not a good film by anybody's standard, but hey, if you can get you one of those pristine VHS tapes. That's got the original cut I. Highly recommend it if you're a fan and you want to treat yourself to a brain cell funeral. Now. We should take a quick break, and then we come back.

then let's go to Gary in Dallas say Gerry hello how you doing today hi you know I want to ask you a question just background I looked at the data and then another Volkswagen for what product and in that list of pre owned vehicle and looked and one of your students of the show on the VW Passat didn't care popping up on their on their site and I did some research I actually went out to one of the friends of the show and your own world the VW diesel inequitable out or anything and there's a big manufacturers warranty roles in various ages and come on to get your feedback of talks on the spot diesel well other than the fact that Volkswagen put cheat devices on it it was doing very well I mean diesels for Volkswagen in America were twenty five percent of their sales Gerry and I I would review my tell everybody this is of the diesel engines we had back in the early eighties they had no power it sounded like a diesel engine when you started it up blue black smoke for the first minute or so you could tell it wasn't a gas engine other than it was going to deliver forty four to forty eight miles to the gallon out on the highway but Volkswagen begin Volkswagen they had I don't remember the scandal here and yeah but but the best part is when they went to the because they wanted to use a cheaper diesel engine one that wasn't as high tech as they put it so you have to go to the accountants get everything approved will to meet the emissions standards it was gonna cost a hundred and sixty five dollars per car and the cans of Volkswagen said no we're making the cars cheaper so you have to figure out how to do it but not that way and they'd put the cheap devices on it for less money and ended up spending I don't know twenty thousand dollars per carton fines and all that but the engine was great so the ones that are showing back up and believe me I think most of them are still sitting on runways out in the desert someplace but if you can find one and the price is good you're right it's got a good warranty on the great cars yeah and you know I like I said I went out there and the people are really nice and if I was going to pull the trigger on it he would only be with one of your friends of the show if you were here if you want to have some fun go Google Google maps Victorville California okay there's an airforce base there so the Google maps over the airforce base make it a little bit bigger and go to satellite view and see if you can count all the votes wagons there already so yeah I mean I would I would read it I mean and some of them were given the certified I mean the the certified votes wagon thing on top of it as well why again the cars were fine is the engines had she devices on so the reason they they went back and modify that is correct that's correct Volkswagen had a fix it was approved for everything but the fact is everything kind of got messed up his Volkswagen's out tens of billions of dollars right right yes Sir and so when they get all these cars bought back people get into new cars we come up with the fixes are finally approved Volkswagen was kind of holding their dealers to the fire on what they wanted him to pay to buy these cars back right yes and so the dealers most upset the ad that price I think I'll pass which is why you can pull of Victorville California and see all of the park in the desert because one but a couple months ago a listener was out there and he said you know me Volkswagens are in the desert there and I said yeah thousands and thousands and that's not the only place in America they're still piled up okay and last question I had my insurance person check on the insurance on it and found it three insure Ian or creature of the Volkswagen Passat live at three twenty sixteen was more than this Chris to insure a twenty sixteen broke it's okay I was surprised by that it is wrong with the insurance and then the ball's way is all based on the insurance companies actuarial tables okay it's like back in the days when I was with Acker we had an Acura integra GT right and it was quite in terms of horsepower and all that compared to cars today but you can go anywhere and an insurance company would treat it just like an end to an integra except for farmers insurance because I am a person by one once and they went farmers insurance insured and it doubled their rates and I said that's not right because you get standard rates on that car anywhere else in fact you have to get the gear all right yeah I'll get I'll do that thanks I will go back out there and I'd be a draft of the cart back to back okay cool thanks thank you yeah it's always great when they take the drive in order Sarah but in in the point was he went and went to another insurance company the treated like a standard rate car but farmers apparently maybe didn't have many insurer but had a lot of losses on them and sometimes you go with an insurance company they have a lower rate on a certain car because they have so many of them that are insured and they don't have claims like another vehicle and so they do the surcharge but it's not usually as bad as it used to be eight eight eight seven eight seven

"That was another one that was cut for the American audiences the getting shot I loved it. I like Jack. GDR's like he's not gonNA shoot. I enjoyed that. I wish I had more of that anarchic humor. That guy does a good job the guy who plays Mr Basset share it's funny when we post nece. There are going to be people who love highlander. They're like they're going to be and they're going to be guys that were six to eight years old. In one thousand nine hundred six. Yes there will be very few women for a film that purports to be this incredible romance. He has no chemistry whatsoever ever with any female character in the film. I thought like oh the police lady she's a data analysis technician for the New York City Police Department but lives in a brilliant classic classic six apartment with stunning park views as eighty contemporary art. I mean people have left you could get these apartment is insane insane well speaking of her actresses that were considered for that role. Yes Brooke Adams now that it's Karen I even though Karen Allen was also considered. They got quite as close. Margo didn't get a leg. No actual mentioned more go gator Roseanne Arquett Jennifer beals Tanya Roberts and Elizabeth Brooks rooks. WHO's Elizabeth Brooks no no a couple of people considered for the Qurban were rutger. Hauer and Nick Nolte poor rutger typecast for all eternity and Scott Glenn and of course. It's not that would have been okay Scheider me. I'd love to ran into Russellville K- you. He was talking about the difficulty Castellina curb part and it's so bizarre today there are still creative offspring of this movie that it's a franchise for all time yeah. I mean you could make this much better. It's a great concept. It's a great idea for a movie. What is it about the concept that is so great just immortal people who got to kill each other. Is that got it no. It's the Mash up what this movie glancing. Lee Attempts to do is fun to watch as a moviegoer. It's fun to be in the Scottish highlands Elands and play against that backdrop again pre kind of braveheart which really set the template for that and borrows from this movie. I would say besides just using James Cosmo aside from using James COSMO barrel one of like warring Scottish clans of old movies. There were prior to this. Perhaps some but there is a certain interesting thing about out seeing a character exist in multiple times in dimensions that are so definable. That's what's really interesting to me is like that you can have of a kernel of an idea poorly executed yet it struck enough of nerve where all these years later we're still seeing versions of highlander better use the word mash up the visual elements of it did work there is something fun and weird about the different swords and like the fact that he is fighting in and jeans and sneakers and a trench coat a sword against the guy dressed in punk rock this just weirdness of throwing all of that together. We said it's sci-fi kind of fantasy kind of the fact that there's so much stuff in there almost in a childlike way of somebody who's like yes. This is that to me. I did find appealing yeah. I do wish that that'd be maybe if we dedicated ourselves to watching all the subsequent highlander iterations we would go you know they finally got it right in the thirtieth version. I don't know that's true because I was looking at wikipedia number to the quickey supposedly terrible but with each successive about three they said was a pale remake of the first oh Jeez the fourth they was was like almost indescribable and by the fifth it literally has only one sentence. That's the immortal still keep trying to kill each other like still those darnold crap wrap up anyone considered for the Sean connery role. Let Me Guess Marlon Brando. There were a few people considered for Ramirez. Nobody of Spanish extraction that I can see origin extraction leaving leaving cliff sure I could see that someone had an old western accent going into Clint Eastwood. I'm not wearing and peacock feathers Clinton dignity. No matter how many Zeros you put on the paycheck Malcolm McDowell Man Gene Hackman share Michael Cain is the only one that does Michael Caine Peter O'Toole one movie Michael Turn Down he could pick them Sean Connery's. I don't feel like doing this. If I say a million dollars walkaway leave you ever have better negotiating. Can you just cite an insane amount of money and they go but I do. I would have enjoyed Michael Cain or Peter O'Toole in that Polo shirt. I mean if this movie had more scenery. Mary chewers it would have been far better when Sean Connery's on screen. You're happy to watch him because he's just twinkling happy and has a million dollars in his pocket. The female character portrayed by the great named actress Beatie Edney. She literally screams like four times in the scene and it's just used as a device to cut away to me thinking that's such a construct of movies. That doesn't happen in real life. Women don't just scream as men fight visit believe the female characters in this movie are so pathetically sketched. I mean even the whole story line of the metallurgist detective. Whatever she supposed is to be love interest or they love this. I mean so then in the end. He's the one and now the power that the one has which I don't know if they get into in the movie but the power that the one now has to know everything and to be able to enslave humanity. That's the power he's giving her. Did you read that act. I don't know I am power. That's what curb is trying to get the that's why he wants to become the was the way he says it at the end and maybe we can play a little bit of the end. He says like once the quickening happens and he doesn't know the whole thing. I think he's no longer immortal and now can have kids and knows everything everything and so that's why he can be happy with this new woman yeah which makes no sense. Can you down about the prize. It's like well. Oh winning by it but if I concentrate I know what people thinking all over the world presidents diplomats scientists scientists. I can help them to stand each other. You're thinking whether or not you can love me. You can just like you can love and have children live in grow. You never prepared me for that. You Spanish peacock patience highland. You've done well some mortalities on the other immortals only to in order to not be immortal. Yes I also might have misunderstood. It was also like I was just watching. I was thinking like wow that's like a music video stage now on each just in empty sound stage with windows which are going to be blown up. The floor is slackening. It's what happens with me now. Quicken there's lightning. He's just going to scream a lot your suggestion by the way what did I suggest I recall yeah. I sent Christian email and I said hey how stew Rodney dangerfield back to school. I bet you that is a hilarious freaking movie. I haven't seen that since it came out either islander. It depends on what you like. How can it not be great. Herald Ramos isn't it. Maybe even directed it. Maybe you know we've done a lot of. I don't even know what you said but we did do a lot of us. They don't like them. Let's have some fun. This was very fun and like I said I think things that people will remember saw in heavy rotation. I think that's where our sweet spot thought but look at this cast Rodney Dangerfield Sally Kellerman Burt Young Keith Gordon Robert Downey Junior Emmet Walsh Billy Sabca ned beatty eighty Sam Kennison Kurt Freakin Vonnegut as himselves and you didn't want to do next week next week. It's already back to school. All the whole point was like doing it when everyone's just in the back to school mindframe if you'd made that argument at the thought of that leader it's sort of like how Glenn whatever his name is Glen Widen. God bless you. Glenn an enviable because he's got these two franchises which on of you know I saw the first one was a lot like this in the sense that it's got walking though right thinking that it was going to be better than what it Kinda Kinda didn't the cast and crew was brought to you by two different guys on a bench a new comedy series from American Bangles Star Ryan Flanagan two different guys on a bench where Ryan Talk to Ryan on a bench. We keep the comedy simple folks.

I was going to do the broadcast and cable listings from the week of December nineteenth twenty-fifth Nineteen eighty-seven that's an early Christmas present because I I watched this. I'm a risk reward type person or whatever the term is when you do something then you reward yourself so I'm from school. It's two in the afternoon and I'm going to start art by watching pool third annual nine ball championship tape.

There's some new cartoons. Chris and I haven't heard for and I wanted you to see if you've heard of these saber rider and the Star sheriffs. Are you familiar with that but let's look it up well. The first thing comes up is saber rider and the Star sheriffs game that must be a spin off of this looks like Japan Nation it looks it looks like the same the Voltron template yeah you're right.

"By the way Michael came in score is also equally ludicrous and hilarious throughout this entire film with music and incredible Bulls Scottish scenery substituting for substance here quite well. I might add full cast and crew is brought to you by out of Jack's mind a new comedy short video series from Jackpot Nick Co writer and director of the Sony Pictures Feature Film Space Station Seventy six and current recurring guest on Grayson recent Frankie and see nation out of Jack's mind likened follow at the chocolate comedy on facebook or chocolate dot com chocolate original comedy comedy delivered daily the voiceover by Sean Connery as an echo effect because it was recorded in the bathroom of his Spanish villa and it says parentheses where he had been working with the voice coach in order to perfect the Spanish accent he used in the movie he doesn't use the Spanish it was played for the producers over the phone and they approved it because they could not discern the quality of the recording over the yeah which is sounds Sean. I mean to Sean Connery's credit. He has the twinkle in his eye of man being paid one million dollars for seven days days of he's not like phoning it in I mean except for when he phoned in from the bathroom Spanish villa but like in his scenes I he'll Steig steig McLeod say he's funny but on the other end and also doesn't look like he did a lot of preparation either we played before we started rationing during out space in his bank account does look like he's trying to remember his lines as he's explaining a Sean Long Way from when your shootings are offered to a split that car fee with the director well did you read the anecdote about how Sean almost walked off the picture when the seasons clancy Brown enters the castle keep and smashes his broad sword down on the table where Sean is having some wine with otherwise of Macleod McLeod apparently he was supposed to cleave the table with the edge of the sword but instead he hit on the flat side and a piece of the sword broke off and whizzed past Sean Connery's face it might have even hit him and that's the moneymaker everything stopped. Sean actually contemplated walking off the picture because you can't risk the face and then he agreed to continue on and said I think will be using my stunt double my favorite two pieces as of Trivia from the I'm Debbie page our Christopher lamberth spend time with dialogue coach developing an accent which sounded non specifically foreign actually no it sounds highly specifically for and it sounds suspiciously like his actual speaking voice so I don't know what you got paid dialogue coach but you stole money. Also I love that the film makers were shocked shocked to find out after signing a contract for Christopher Lambert that he spoke absolutely no English. That is not doing your due diligence. Casting was a real different process back then just to go back to Gregory Widen. He didn't love the movie. His original screenplay was a much darker grittier portrayal in the highlander universe. They're very positive reviewers who were saying the villain here is not the Kurkin it is time and it is all about the difficulty of being an immortal which is why it ends up with the ending that it does maybe he's making himself feel better by saying that but I thought it was pretty interesting that he wanted and he actually ended up up aiding clancy Brown's performance because as did clancy brown as it got more sort of campy and strange clancy round didn't like his own performance he he wanted it to be more a dark and brooding character who because of being immoral he'd seen so many of his loved ones die and Connor Macleod would become somebody who is is still somewhat hopeful about the possibilities of immortality whereas the curtain was dark reflection of that and who had become nihilistic by by losing everything and now just wanted to destroy things as he put it the destr- kit chopping off the heads of all the other immortals was his only reason to get up in the morning. I read that the the back story story of courage in is that his drunken father crushed curtains head with a rock in nine seventy see and then upon returning to life. Kurkin proceeded to force his father to swallow a searing hot stove to kill him. That's that's a bad seed. Also clancy brown originally wanted to be dressed in a suit and bowler hat going just for different instead of crazy. He wanted to be a different kind of Gimme. Some Alternative Casting Kris knows quite a bit so the the one I guess who was closest closest he settled on Christopher Lambert after seeing Greystoke and that was after he as one of the one of history's after he failed to convince Vince Kurt Russell Sting was considered to play McLeod and also considered there were a lot of different bands that show they ended up with Queen Yeah. He wants to live forever song. It's pretty pretty good. I will say this is a better soundtrack than flash. Gordon for Queen. Songs are better. I think that the songs have a reason to be in the movie the in a certain way and I think that the bombast of Queen fits this whereas there's enough bombast for everyone in Flash Gordon Queen is your psych syrupy bright red frosting thing that we don't need onto multicolor already eating whereas this it's actually kind of like I like the songs and all the female characters in this film have so little to do that. They're essentially reduced to making guttural noises screaming crying or passing out well except for his Scottish wife who lives to a ripe old age dies in his arms and that's I guess the tragedy of being the immortal is that he got to live an entire life with his wife whom he loved and then she died therefore he's heartbroken and starts. It's wearing coats. I love that he's wearing the transient but then when he gets lost him apartment he takes it off and he's got a bomber jacket underneath while the Trish stratus to hide the sort I get that but then why have the bomber jacket I it's like I have to cool jackets which were among the other people considered. It's literally every white male leading man around the Arab including Michael Douglas Richard Gere Patrick swayze. This'll be Christopher Lambert Scares Lambert's character all better choices Liam Niessen and Gary Oldman Vigo Mortenson Val Kilmer Bill Paxton Michael Biehn nineteen eighty-six no way he's no Dude Christopher Reeve Kevin Costner Sir sting who also was considered to this Marc Singer was at some point the top choice now Marc Singer you might remember from the or from beast master but but he turned it down due to scheduling conflicts Mickey Rourke Ed Harris Sam Sheppard Michael Keaton and Mel Gibson turned down the role of Connor Macleod and then acted and directed in braveheart part about Scottish people with the same guy. The Guy McLeod's little group in the beginning. Oh Angus cousin. He's a tough guy who's like I don't know he gets injured and they're like caught. Arising wound they just slugs back some Scotch and press red hot sword and he's like ours being held back by his sons great love that James Cosmo. I don't know if everyone just passed because the script it was terrible. The did say considered as opposed to I think the only one marks sure if you and our man you movie. We'd consider everyone on a wishlist. Yeah I think thirty years who you consider to be in the movie as sort of funny thing that came up when they were talking about how Mel Gibson turned down Kurt Russell. I didn't know this but I guess it makes sense is also had a mullet that he was considered for Martin. Riggs in lethal weapon sure makes sense well. Sean connery was originally offered the role of Macleod supposedly league but was more interested in playing Ramirez for a million dollars exactly. There's a new profile this week of Brad Pitt in New York Times and it's actually pretty very interesting and revealing conversation a la the Nick Cage yes one that we discussed when we did moonstruck and one of the things that James Gray says director James Gray says of Brad is that he's always trying to whittle away his part. He's not one of those stars who's trying to like always insert himself into everything and I'm like yeah you ain't got anything uncalled delegation man the last casting for Connor Macleod. Guess which I want to preface this by saying that I I guarantee you. This is a lie but hulk Hogan says he was offered the part of Connor Macleod but he turned down in order to focus on his wrestling career though it is of course funny because it does open on the wrestling match apparently early the scene and I was referring to pre drone was invented by the eventual inventor of the steady cam and it was using what we now you see a lot in football broadcast which is like a wire system that suspending camera that's how they got the camera to glide across and go into Moody Christopher Lambert. Now there are scenes in this that taken out of context work. I was into saving. We're starting out on the rest of the way the wrestling and the like the crowd crown exactly the grotesque of the crowd around this moody figure for some reason which never does get explained but I you kind of wonder what the reason is that he goes downstairs the garage and starts fighting a guy in a suit with swords but the was terrible. The fighting is so poorly staged supposedly at the parking garage scene gene. He should be at the apex of his morals Hundred Years to it. I'm just saying Christopher. Elaborate sword fighting in the parking garage is horrible. Maybe I was just taking with the mood lighting and the sports which here's another funny invention you were they would hook car batteries up as I read their awesome. Okay he said that but I believe Levi scribe that to the same I don't believe that they had car batteries attached to their leg and that the sparks flew when they touched swords as a result I mean there's a couple couple scenes where that happens but it hasn't really happened in the parking garage scene but but you don't think that that's how they actually did I. I think it's a convenient. After the fact parable he meets another immortal the friends yes in New York. This whole thing is the part where they're talking about. How they'd megadeal days. They cut out a scene where they meet Thomas Jefferson. This is sort of stuff. The Heavier Blade Mr Bastards ploy. I Reggie Mr Besset is waiting Sir Gelli. I'm ready. God so wonderful Thank you Bassett so he's now come back to life. Because of course he can't be killed. He runs through a second time Stop Sir. I apologize for calling wife Bloated Warthog. Bet You could say now in China..

"I don't know if this is part of the original Edgar Rice burroughs story but the the way they explained Christopher Christopher Lambert French accent in Greystoke. The Legend of Tarzan Lord of the apes is that Ian Holmes character finds him and teaches him to speak English and is a Frenchman who has an accent and that's why I guess the Tarzan Character speaks like Christopher Lambert which is a brilliant excuse but I can't ruin if that was actually in the novel but I can't imagine it must be a brilliant solution. Guys are tearing their hair out in a studio in a writer's room in Hollywood. Are we going to solve this fucking problem then why cast in home there's gotta be another actual. Frenchman instead you have Ian Holm really desperately trying to do a French accent and explain things to Chris. I remember I was very convincing in the Charleston because again he doesn't have to speak much just beginning three quarters of the movie and he doesn't have to be perfectly in command of what he's saying. Where's our ars. I'm not going to call them a star. I guess he's not a star. Keep data have only twenty eight. I thought this was in this in this twenty eight. Wow He was twenty eight. When he got a highlander. I thought he was going to have like maybe one or two French Open No. He has quite a few credits before Greystoke in France including adding one not jump ear Melville but there is definitely like a crime noir thing called something like the telephone doesn't work sounds creamy the telephone bar close in one thousand nine hundred eighty Russell Mulcahy said of the bizarre accents that are going on in this film because again yet again Sean Connery Connery's armor is being dented for me and doing this podcast over and over again because you you realize it as a film Fan in our minds we hold a few iconic great performances and we forget a world of work that was really just dollar signs that and this is a great example like there is no reason for Sean Connery to be in this movie. I can think of a million reasons which he got. He got didn't get a million dollars. You got a million dollars for one weeks. That's the only reason why isn't it because it does not resemble the character as written Juan Juan Sanchez Villalobos Ramirez chief metallurgist to King Charles V of Spain and I met you the he and Christopher Lambert got to be very good friends for a while at least Churches Watch Sean Connery ended up being a spoiler for nine hundred eighty eighty six highlander Sean Connery's character dies yes but he does return highlander to the quickening and the only reason returned is because they were such good friends and Christopher lamb was it's like listen. I'm contractually obligated to movie. Would you mind it'll be fun. Was it a flashback scene in two. I don't know I haven't seen it but I realized when looking get his. Mba I've seen three things with Christopher Lambert over you know his very long career which includes a lot of Cesar or whatever the French Academy Awards are but I can't attest to the quality of any of those I've Seen Greystoke this and Hail Caesar. I guess he has a line in that. Here's a little Sean Connery as Ramirez explaining long to Connor Macleod that he is immortal. He has no idea why he came back to life after being stabbed through the heart by clancy Brown fearful Metal Wolf Costume Skull Larmer skull when you're immortal you have time to get stuff like this. I sent you a picture. Last night of I was howling with laughter. Sean Connery's appearance in this film. It's it's almost like the more money you're going to pay him. The more he's willing to wear the most ridiculous things he's wearing a pearl drop earrings. He's he's wearing a Spanish Kista door costume. He's wearing giant feathered hat. He's wearing some sort of BOA. Here's this this sort of Cape with peacock. Yes is so much outlander stuff in this in this game islander he said outlander. Isn't it another shape how land dish what's outlander. Scotsman Sean Connery who was out the highlander and highlander but he wasn't a movie called Outland Yeah Space Cop which should not be confused. We endure which is another thing which like this goes back and forth between like ancient. There's there's one like all the wives watch now. It's like it's like we're on generations and that's why you're a bad husband. Maybe anyway here's Sean Connery. Sorry explaining to cornerback cloud you can die. Tell me how did it happen for God's Sakes. Why does the sun come up while the stars just pin holes in the cup of night who knows always what I do know is that because you were on different men will feel you try to drive you away like like the people of your village.

"Pretty awesome. Hey it's a great video and yeah you know and you see a lot of the things that Mulkey was famous four which is using very low production values to create effects that played very well on your television in nineteen eighty one so he's. I'm basically a garbage bag shimmering light and it looks like a river and you know that type of thing. Bob's your uncle. That's very first video ever played on MTV. This is basically them holding holding up the severed head of Radio Wikipedia says McCain's workers recognizable by the use of fats not fats domino off the fast cuts taking shots and the use of glowing lights neo noir lighting my favorite wind blown drapery and fans all you John Woo fans he you didn't come up with that and so he ripped off Russell K. Hey let's say ideas they flow freely information must be if he's known for neo noir lighting windblown drapery and fans. How did he not direct saint. ELMO's fire this. Is this was a pairing of director in material. It should have happened Russell. Okay baby a great video. Director actor may be may have made other films that are competently assembled and put together. The only other film that I've seen of his was the nine hundred ninety four is the shadow with Alec Baldwin. Oh God God he directed that God remember that was supposed to be so big and good. I know I mean I was a huge shadow fan. Who knows what evil lacks in the heart of men. I don't know in what evil lurks in the hearts of men. The shadow knows that was not good well like this. It had some someone interesting idea with shadows said the studio executive shadows bring him in like this. I thought I had some great visual moments that then had a lot of time mm-hmm between them I could go along with the story I could go along with the mash up of the Scottish highlands with Nineteen eighty-six New York work which is like a cool thing to mash up until together. I love the concept of the immortals and they're among us and they have their own thing and he's an antique the dealer he lives in an amazing apartment in New York City which you're immortal you have time to amass that kind of fortune however everything stops there pretty much but what's what's the there's a term for like the essential bottomless black hole at the center of something which dooms the thing itself in this film it is the choice and it's a choice that Russell Mulcahy he made which I've not heard him defend other than that he did it. which is he cast? Christopher Lambert and he said he'd seen him in something and he was like Greystoke was a great style and he was like he had it in the eyes but the guy couldn't speak English let alone do Scottish do New York or anything other than his bizarre album of a French accent and yet it's hard to complete dismiss Christopher Lambert because because yes the four square inches around his eyes are the only part of him that make him a compelling screen presence like when he's not speaking. He's kind of compelling to look at. He's not traditionally a handsome. He does have a certain. I guess that's why he worked for Greystoke legend of Tarzan. He's a certain animalistic quality to him without being feral yet. He feels wounded inhuman. I I haven't seen Greystoke looks like more of an interesting. Well told story than this. I mean I haven't seen it for for years but I remember. It was pretty impressive for me. When I first Assad it was such an odd thing you conceive of Tarzan as the in the comic strips and this is more of an origin story focusing on the fact that he had been a spoiler our English Lord lost in the jungle and him dealing with society when he gets brought Back Bay was fascinating and I never thought of that kind of revisionism so it was just cool in that sense I love that Greystoke the film that has three titles in its one title Greystoke the legend of Tarzan Lord of the apes save those guys you can just call Greystoke East okay. That's a great title. You have to understand. This is before the trilogy crazy things going on. Now I had three channels. You use them all now. Greystoke semi-colon the legend of Tarzan Lord of the Rings and so a lot going on there hugh Hudson director of whatsoever. They're running on the beach and the chariots of fire fire. Yeah that's movie. That comes ends up a lot matt. Can you please play some of the iconic Vangelis Score.

Many accents brought to life Lambert into due uh-huh. We should've brought Christopher Lambert and just to say. Do you ever stop to ask yourself. How the hell did I ever become a movie star Francis. You well. Did you read yeah well. I've never seen him perform friends she could be. I was wondering that I was I was wondering like I didn't actually look at it as IMDB page. I wondered if he was brilliant. In some jean-pierre Millville new our crime new wave French film where speaking in French she was good and it's possible and look he still keeps working and actually looking on his rather the he's not much better now look. He's still does a lot of stuff. That looks similar quality to this. He's got a lane that he seems perfectly happy to stay in first of all Let's inform the listeners who we are and what we're doing here. Kris K. I'm Jason. I'm the guy talked too much. I'm Chris. I'm the guy who cuts down on his talking too much more manageable this cast and crew today. We're talking about the nineteen eighty-six fantasy action adventure sci. It's it's sci-fi. It's everything it's everything. It's like a blender. Throw it all Eddie see what happens who gives a Shit ninety-six fantasy action adventure film man's historians historical bodice-ripper highlander which is a beloved film and which I have not seen probably in twenty five or thirty thirty years and Chris finally after watching so many films as you say in your ever Chris Polite manner many many films of this ilk okay this makes me appreciate that brief window in our youth when we could watch something like this and not be burdened with expectations of good and bad and you could just enjoy it for what it was on its own terms and you had no idea at that age aged. It's just so bad what is going on in highlander Chris so you had seen it. I'd seen it probably eighty six eighty seven eighty eighty eight. I haven't seen it since then and in the movie theater ever no idea the reason I really I owned that can guarantee whether it was in a movie theater at home by movies on planes and eighty-seven and let's say they brought the projector in and set up a screen. That'd be didn't have an airplane in the movie joke airplane of the audience watching an airplane crash they did. What were they watching it on? I forget up in the front so actually almost like a movie theater a time not so long ago when they just pulled down one unscreened. Oh Yeah and we didn't have our own screens in front of armed personnel. No no that's back when communitarian meant something we had cohesive society. I was the reason why is my my impression of highlander was always about as far as I knew it had never been in the movie theater. I grew up not having cable and friends who had cable would always like all the time her I loved it and by the time I ended up I know why don't they loved it. Loved it on its own terms or loved did ironically no. I think they loved it on. Its own terms as kids. When I did watch it I think I was. It's a little bit too late to enjoy on its own terms a little too young to appreciate it full ironically so I was watching it. I was like okay I guess and then I hadn't seen it tinsel. I was really looking forward to because it is so fondly remembered and has an launched the largest by sheer number of stuff. Yes French history. Greg widen is a screenwriter whose the creator of all this highlander stuff. He's probably sitting on a giant castle made of bricks of cash. I mean this is not his only success of course backdraft backdraft the prophecy another one which surprisingly for some weird reason as five sequels. Here's a photo on wikipedia. It looks like a really Nice Guy. He looks very assuming he looks bemused. He looks like if there is if there were like a a picture version of what I'm doing right now and that's kind of hands up to shoulders. What do you want me to do at me. What what was the idea like. Give me the pitch in in a nutshell so no one thousand nine hundred eighty six highlander. He wrote it when he was a student at UCLA. This was a class project and as he put it. I got an A. Minus and a house. You don't mean class class like in good. No no no this is real. This is top shelf no was a project for for the film guys and Ucla he had gone to Scotland and at one point standing in front of a suit of armor was like I I wonder like like what that guy's life was like gotta pass and this guy is still around and and this is how it began and the movie didn't do well when it came out in America. America was a bomb it did well in the UK. All Your Christopher Lambert was a much bigger star. Yes and they had better posters much. It's better posters. I loved the story the Russell McKay he tells about the first American poster which he describes as making Christopher Lambert looked like he I had acne black and White Moody poster tells you nothing about what you're going into at all it looks like some sort of serial killer movie it looks kind of Punk Rock and rock and it's not as nothing to do. We're about to see. It's very hard to describe what it is that you're about to see when you go into it. I don't know whether to just presume that everyone has seen this film or not but basically you have immortals else and the only way they can be killed if their heads are cut off yet curiously Chris knowing that they're immortal and can't be killed. They still engage in sword fights which seems like a really cumbersome. Persson way to solve disputes amongst each other or is the reason for the sword fighting only just because that's the only way they can capping the is a sword the the only way wouldn't it be more executive chainsaw exact sure. I Guess Muhtar but you know the K Kinda sort and actually one of the guys they'd have Scimitar. The poll on the Pole Yard Blade cemeteries sort itself. You know the thing I'm talking about. I know have you were a palace guard pike all sorts of crap you don't you have like shells in your house with little statuettes home all types of armaments when you get together with friends. We've got a problem. I just don't have any friends. What are we gonNA game going man the Dungeon Master Dungeon Master. It'd be very fun. I don't think it's not question. Would it's a question. It is Oh so you've got a game already. I don't have a game so I would like to get coming to mind. I'll tell you Russell mulcahy directed the Hell L. add some of the most important music videos of all time and some important TV show. He directed the pilot for Queer as folk in two thousand which was important when I watched it now. I didn't a love it. I kind of thought I would have eight enough to either appreciate it more but I still was this sort of. You know it's fine. There are things that I did like the swords. The fact that nobody has seward's that are appropriate for where they're from like Scottish highlander has Catania sure man the Polish chartered accountant into attacks him in in the beginning of the movie has like a Spanish rapier McLeod zeal wait.

What can we expect from the final 3 episodes of Game of Thrones?

"Giving away too much episode one they were trying to tell this tale of the white walkers white walkers first appeared in the very first episode of game a game of thrones. Right. We're not going to tell you exactly how. But they're episodes remaining. And I think we can put a bow on the white Walker story. Ooh. The adventures oil directly how. So where do you think this ends because they got like what? Three more episodes now four, right? I thought the end of the the series was going to be the white Walker storyline. But that's not it appears as I were going to actually just play the game of thrones. Now, right. Yes. That's why last night's episode. I think cleared away the answer Larry stuff in in a lot of begin fine tuning on on how this series is actually going to end. And and I just hope you know, as I don't have to tell anybody that. Oh, I'm obsessed with the mother of all dragons. And so I just pray that mother. Please be careful. It's it's a little frustrating being as rule fan of this show because I feel like the mob jumps down on you. When you don't understand certain getting it's an elitist audience by seeing every episode. I've only seen every episode once so excuse me, if I don't recognize a callback. When someone tells aria about a bunch of is that she saw and it was a line in like season three. How am I supposed to remember that without a previously owned game of thrones? That to me is a snob. Easiest thing this series. Does it just assumes, you know, everything and assumes that you're a die hard people need a refresher. Hell Highlander was week to week. But they told me what was going on each individual story was unique in Highlander. You had a single thread of there can be only one got it. Good. But I need a refresher. I I agree with that. I think it's it game of thrones fans tend to be a little on the snobby side. They're like people who are chess experts regarding everybody else's checkers players. If you give the the this recap before every episode though, you can kind of see where the episode is going to go. They replace something from episode. Like three seasons ago, you're gonna go that's important as I it's going to do something unless you're boy JR Martin just throws in like random things that have nothing to do with the episodes. That's coming up today. And it's like oh last time on game of thrones. It's just random scenes that have nothing to do with anything. Just to throw people off speaking of spoilers. I was gonna ruin ventures on Thursday. I was joking. When I I said that but all the people coming at me on Twitter makes me wanna really do it on Thursday. Oh, that might do it right now though in a sacrilege ruin it right now, you know, what happened.

Washington's Inslee puts climate change at center of presidential bid

"It's been said that nothing is stronger than an idea whose time has come and for my next guest. Washington state governor Jay Inslee that idea is climate change. And that idea is time has come he staked his run for the White House in twenty twenty on what he calls America's climate mission. And his campaign platform says that quote, defeating climate change is the defining challenge of our time. And that it must be the foremost priority for the next president. That's a bold statement considering that climate change was practically a non issue in the last presidential election. There were no specific questions about climate policy in the debates, and according to the environmental new site, grist only, five minutes and twenty seven seconds were spent talking about climate change across all three presidential debates. That's two percent of the total talking time. So has the tide turned. Is the American public ready for a candidate who embraces this issue? That's what we're going to be talking about on our question to you listeners. How important is climate change compared to other national issues when it comes to winning your vote in the next presidential election on eight four four seven two four eight two five five eight four four scientific you can tweet us at scifi governor Jay Inslee as governor of Washington state. He's jumped into the pool of democratic presidential candidates for twenty twenty welcome to sign Friday governor, you bet it's the best day of the week. Thank you. Happy Friday because of you. Complimentary. Get you everywhere you've been called a single issue candidate. Would you disagree with that name? Yes. Because climate change is not a single issue. It's all issues. It's a matter of saving our economic assets where we had one point six billion dollars in lost because of leading west on the downside. The upside it's the number one job creator in United States in the next several decades clean energy jobs today are going twice as fast as the rest of the economy. The number one job fastest growing jealous. Today's solar installer. Never to wind turbine technician. So it is as much an economic promise as it is an environmental peril. It's a health issue. Look, it's with the thousands of our kids are suffering from from fossil fuel pollution, increasing the range of infectious diseases because of insect vectors loss of life during during hurricanes and heat waves. It's a national security issue. We know that the Trump is trying. To ignore the clear warnings from the Pentagon, and our intelligence services that this is a national security threat because we know that increasing droughts have potential to drive mass migrations with consequent political instability in violence. So it's not just a single issue is all of the issues, and is one that we have no more opportunities. This is our last chance. And when I've learned when he was governor as I've been for six years in the most successful economy in the United States you need to make priority decisions. It's one of the first functions leadership, and what I am saying is defeating climate change has to be the first foremost and term on duty of the next semester. Ration- because it is our last chance if you look at the clearest science fi report, it is becoming quite obvious that we've gotta move right now. Someone so much of the impacts of climate change that you were taking off there also seem to be included in the the green new deal that is working its way debating through congress, would you if you were still serving in congress, would you have your name among its co-sponsors? I think this has been a welcome development. I wrote a book accosted a book in two thousand seven that basically set out a vision for economic growth round clean energy. So I really welcome a wet. This is done to light up interest in this as as you indicated it's really important to get climate change on people's radar stope, and this has been very successful getting into the national conversation. It's also been very successful raising the scope of people's ambition. This cannot be just a check the box kind of issue. It has to be dominant organizing principle, the United States and insert. It's it's engaged. More communities in this discussion marginalize means frontline community just color in poverty that was the first victims of climate change. And so it's made clear something I believe that. As we go through this transition to decarbonised economy and a clean energy economy. We have to make this not. Just the transition. It has to be just transitioned so everyone can participate. So now, we start the heavy work at hard work of developing the policies that hopefully will follow what we've done in Washington right now, we're of beating the efforts in Washington state. And I hope we keep that that ball rolling. So how do you answer people who say addressing climate change is is too expensive? Or they want to take your hamburgers away from you. Well, I just say baloney. You know, I was having a discussion with big McCain of you a couple of weeks ago, and she was seeing exactly that. But, you know, Democrats take away your planes and your your railroads in your car. And I said, well, that's interesting Megan because as of this moment, I had a shiny blue General Motors all electric bowl. It was made by the American workers and Oreo on Michigan. And that's the type of destiny that we have. Usually, we'll have a president to unite the edgy nations in the innate can-do optimistic spirit of the American people to grow our economy around clean energy. We know we are capable of doing this. Because we've done we've done it so many times before whenever there has been a technological transformation. United States has been able to lead if we have leadership to get us going in. If I'm giving us Highlander I would intend to provide that that spark of leadership just to like John F Kennedy did when. When I was, you know, ten or eleven years of anything, and I believe with the spark of creativity ambition America can do that kind of thing again. But do you think that you know, I remember the Kennedy years? I remember the challenge they go to the moon. I remember Lyndon Johnson taking it over. I remember landing on the moon during the Nixon administration. This was a generational and decade long effort. Do we have that kind of political muscle now to see something through that we could change a whole society? Yes. Not only do we. But we have to have that. You know, what I think victory is the only option here Churchill in World War Two. So sure victory. You said it's really simple. It's only option because without victory. There's no survival. And that is the situation that we have to realize today if we follow science, and we we are scientifically literate nation. We deserve a scientifically literate president. And we have a scientifically illiterate person in that office right now who couple of days ago said that wind turbines cause cancer for goodness sakes. And that if we wind turbines, you won't be able to run your television here, we are going to Konami in my state. We've developed the best economy in the United States in part because we focused on clean energy. We have focused on science in. When you do those two things. Good things happen. Not only to your health. To prevent your force from burning down. And by the way, this is very personal to me 'cause I've met the victims of climate change. I was in paradise California a few months ago, and you know, this town of twenty five thousand people that was burned to the ground looks like a post apocalypse movie in Hollywood, I remember meeting a woman named Marsha. Moss in in seminal springs community about one hundred mobile homes burned. She lost everything. She wanted us to to do something about climate change to produce these forest. Fires. And I think we need a president that will do just that. So yes, I do believe we we the company's ready. And I and I believe that park is pulling in shooting Iowa one of our democratic voters. So I'm happy to the just in time at the right moment. He yet carbon pricing ballot initiative failed in your own state in the last election for the second time another pricing initiative failed in two thousand sixteen. What do these failures mean to you are, you know, are people still not getting it? I think what they show is that we have to be willing to use the most powerful Newell fuel in the country, and that's perseverance, and we have to use perseverance, and we have to use a multiple tools in the toolbox carbon pricing system is one of them with. Fortunately, there are dozens of others. And so we are we are now addressing I'm promoting five bills in my legislature, all of which are moving forward one of which would would guarantee Washingtonians of one hundred percent, clean electrical grid, another that would provide us with clean fuel standards. So we have cleaner transportation fuels and other that would require net of euro commercial building. So we don't waste energy another that will have an incentive program. So more people not just you know, wealthier people, but more people have access to the cars and the like, so we know there's a. Multiple ways to go forward on this. And we're doing this in my state, and I think we have to have the same attitude inner nation, we can do that. If we have a president who's both knowledge of what these things and has had a multi decay. Oh commitment as I've had I've been at this year over twenty years now into some of the first legislation in two thousand three I started the US climate alliance with governor Jerry Brown, we know twenty three states or moving forward. I think this is a good sign, by the way for those. Who question our ability to move forward? This organization that I helped start now twenty three states that are committed to defeating climate change. So and we did this in part because we wanted to world to know they're still intelligent life in the United States. And we've demonstrated that it's one of the reasons that the rest of the world is continuing to move forward. So there is reason for optimism because we know there's there's many ways to to build the clean energy. And we're doing that right here in my state. Let's go to the phones. Eight four four seven two four two five five. Let's go to Ames Iowa. Joe? I welcome to science Friday. Hi, thank you. You know, I think it's really points out of a real flaw. We have in our election system every four years. I see all of these politicians come to Iowa, and they speak at these forums put on by our agriculture powerhouses, all of them speak in favour of everything. That has to do with, you know, animal agriculture ethanol all of these things that really cause global warming and all of them are scared to death to speak out against anything to do with animal agriculture because they know that the farm bureau is other powerful egg this will sink in that even goes, I mean, it's it's completely true for the Republican party.

"Expires February ninth two thousand nineteen. Thank you for joining us, the car pro USA, we go to Marvin in San Antonio next Marvin welcome. Thank you, sir. Pretty shaped very much the service that you do to those of us out in the public who are looking for cars or different cars. I was I was recently in Montana and had the occasion to rent a Toyota Highlander in some of the worst whether that I've seen in a while and go to Montana all the time with very deep, snowdrifts, etc. I was incredibly impressed with a four wheel drive Toyota Highlander, I was wondering if you had a scene back on how durable they are number one. And number two, if there's any outstanding problems, I don't know of a thing. Highlanders just been an amazing SUV for a long long time ten years or better. Enter therefore will drop system is good. The other one that I think I would look at that's got an even better track record, Marvin is the forerunner and the thing I like about the forerunner is it's one of the few very few truck based as she still around the highlanders on a car car chassis has are most of the SUV's. You see out there today? And I think that's one of the reasons the forerunner as been so reliable is because of the truck frame Andrea. It's also there's also a huge benefit in the event of an accident. But the answer your question Highlander has been terrific. I can't say enough good about it. Second part of the question is do they have an experience or any feedback or feeling about? Trying to get a car through a sale from a rental company. If you do your homework. It's okay. I mean, I think we all know that. We don't drive rental cars the same way, we drive our own cars. And and and that's typical so mileage is important. The biggest issue is the big rig car companies have their own body shops. So if it's in Iraq. They don't they fix it themselves. And they don't report it to Carfax or auto check, and there's risk in that. But if you find somebody that's good at doing inspections, and we'll look at over for you. And there's no risk. It's okay. I mean, I I wouldn't close the door on it. I would just tell you to be over careful, unlike when you buy certified car, will you really don't have to be all that.
